2023.06.03 12:56 badgambler1987 Too much pain

Im in so much pain. I (m36) am constantly abused by my gf (27).
I do everything around the house except for most of the cooking and dishes. If we are home together I have to do everything. We have 3 kids together and I have to ask for help ever single minute. Im so exausted.
I love her very much. But when we fight she is so abusive. My whole arm is in pain tonight because she has whacked me over and over. She gets in moods where I can't do or say anything. She's picks apart my past. She spins everything around and tells me I do nothing.
Its the breakup threats that get me. Telling me every fight that I will be single forever. Im a piece of shit etc. She wants to leave and never come back. She hates me. No wonder why my last relationship broke down (after 9yrs). Tonight she said she wished she would of never came near me. Has on numerous occasions told me she hopes I die.
Im just at a loss. Two nights ago she asked why I havent married her. We were having such a good patch. Snuggles most night. 1 small fight and were back to these threats. This same pattern.
This is my soulmate and I just want to be treated like a person with feelings.

[Bremont] A less talked about model
I recently purchased this Bremont Airco Mac 2 for a deep discount as a ex display model and I’m extremely impressed with the dial and case finishing and how comfortable it is on the wrist.
Size wise the watch is near perfect (for me at least) 40mm wide and 47mm lug to lug with the Trip-tick case gives the watch a good presence without feeling oversized like many of their other models.
Similarly to brands like Sinn and Damasko Bremont employs its own case hardening technology which is nice on a high polished case like this which would more obviously show scratches.
Movement wise the watch uses a chronometer grade 2892 which is nothing special in terms of exclusivity but is nicely decorated, thin and reliable movement.
I think Bremont is a hard sell for many people especially at retail but second hand or for a discount the proposition is much stronger especially when you factor in there case technology and having excellent customer support.

I didn't know my face had color until the lab surgery. Even my family members noticed the difference. I'm not healthy pale, I look sick with deep dark eye circles. After surgery it was nearly gone and I had a healthy color in my face, I wasnt pale I had a subtile golden color but now its gone again. I wish I would look more healthy and mentain my healthy color. This makes me insecure sometimes

I am late to admitting to myself I'm trans (I'm nearly 30) and just overwhelmed by all the stuff out there - recs and warnings, costs, what's affordable and safe or dangerous - Turkey, Lithuania?! I am London based but the UK is very expensive. As wait times on the NHS are like 6 years I want to pay for private top surgery out of pocket. Max budget £10k but that would clear me out of any and all money which is NOT ideal.
Any UK/EU based folks got good recommendations? I have both a UK and EU passport if that matters?!

2023.06.03 12:49 PiergiorgioSigaretti I cont stand seeing happy people

Whenever I see a couple in public I feel angry, sad and envious because I’ll never know what it feels like. Seeing someone live your dream kills you. Actually I’m gonna kill me, happy couples are just another reason. I like experimenting so knowing that I can’t find out what happens to you when someone likes you makes me feel bad. I’m nice to people so why can I talk to them unless they talk to me first? I remember once on a school trip everyone was talking with someone besides me. I was writing a rant on a similar topic. Why can other people make friends that easily? There’s a couple near me on the train and they both look good and it makes me wanna smash my head into a wall until I become normal

I posted a happy pride month thing earlier with a bit of a gentle rant. It was immediately downvoted. This post is only directed at the people who can’t just ignore an ask for a month of hiding your bigotry. This post is NOT Mike approved and is not associated with his business. This is from ME.
And I so sincerely mean it. My every intention with my rant below is to say uncomfortable things like how I sleep with trans individuals. Gay. Bi. straight. I fall in love with people based on who they are and not the genitalia they have. I hope it’s really uncomfortable to know that Im pretty proud that attraction transcends gender for me. I hope that it makes the immediate downvoters of my nice post so uncomfortable they really dislike me going forward. It’s mutual, babes. I think it’s pretty annoying how a post asking for acceptance literally just for a month got downvoted immediately.
NOTE: This is not a message from the mod of this page and helper of Mike. This is a message from ME PERSONALLY, A QUEER WOMAN. Mikes got no thing to do with my angry rant below, nor my sincere wish that the downvoters on my much nicer pride post have the month they deserve.
This is a safe place for all, and whether we are talking about kratom or showing support for the queer members of our community during god damn pride month: being a dick (or in this case a pretty clear homophobe, who else would downvote a message of acceptance FOR SOMETHING THAT LIKELY HAS ZERO IMPACT ON YOU) is not tolerated. It won’t earn you a ban but it certainly won’t earn you anything good. I am Pansexual and I live in a state where the party of free speech just BANNED a word (read: only speech I agree with is free), my rant was kind in comparison to that hypocrisy and this clear violation of church and state. Not to mention, if the first amendment is gonna be misinterpreted to mean you can say whatever tf you want with zero consequence, then why the fuck are there consequences for saying GAY. Be consistent in your incomplete interpretations at least. (Btw first amendment means that you can’t be prosecuted by law for words alone, not that you can run your mouth and it’s cool cause free speech.)
Imagine if I had mentioned in that post that not only would I date the same sex, I’d date women who were born male. And I’ll date men, and likewise I’d date those who were born female but are now male. I dont care who y’all date and/or fuck and I can’t understand why it’s so triggering to some people who others date and fuck. Mind your business. Pride month only exists because of people like y’all who invalidate the existence of people like me. I trusted this sub and felt safe posting. Idk but I think that’s why I’m so upset about the downvotes, only cause it was HERE and damn near immediate and I felt my trust and safety to be myself here was no more. So I hope you enjoy the bonus fact that I’m not only queer but the additional details I included in this ACTUAL rant really triggers the triggered even more. Its intentional because I am so disappointed that some in this sub have the capacity to pass judgement on a post about acceptance with pictures of flags. Ridiculous. Grow up.
Go ahead and downvote this too, because at least I am being intentionally insulting (to those select few) and wanted to trigger whoever those people were even more. This is pride month and I am PROUD to not be a discriminatory person (except against those actively advocating for my rights as a woman and a queer person to be stripped from me).

2023.06.03 12:48 Spare-Ad5039 my partner (20M) won’t let his father know about me (20F) & our 3 year relationship..

hi reddit .. my first time making a post like this but i just need help or advice on what to do with my relationship.
myself and my partner are 20 years of age and we’ve been dating since we were 17.
backstory: my partner is the youngest in the family as his parents had him way later in life (basically he’s an accident but so was i) therefore making his parents a lot older than majority of the ‘03 parents. His father laid out strict rules for him and expect so much as he his the golden child. Dating and going out is forbidden (not really, it’s just he always gets the no when asking to come out) so it puts a strain in our relationship.
anyways there’s our problem. i’ve been dating my partner .. let’s call him larry .. for nearly three years and nothing special has occurred. it was understanding in high school as we were still young but now that we are a lot older and in uni, i feel like it’s the right time to start properly dating.
you see larry never taken me out to our restaurant, we have done nothing on our anniversary beside send each other intimate paragraphs. the only exciting thing was when i practically dorm with him for three months but even during that time we stayed in dorms & watched movies. In our nearly 3 year relationship we only went movies twice and bowling once. it took nearly two years to have our first date.
the reason is because his dad won’t let him out which is a valid reason like i will not argue with that but there’s time where i feel like he doesn’t even try. he’s even scared to tell his dad about me but i am happy that his mum knows about me . my mum has met larry and my dad knows about him, you may compare but the reason my dad hasn’t meet him properly is because they live overseas.
we did plan to introduce ourselves formally to each other families on our 21st which is basically next year, however my mum asked me a question asking “will he make it?” which was my breaking point.
my family has been eager to meet larry as i’ve been dating him for so long as no one beside my mum has officially met him so he was invited to many events, i always said “it’s okay, he’s not allowed to come due to (whatever reason)” . i told my mum this and she replied by asking that question, that i asked larry the same thing, he said he will try, i eventually gave him the ultimatum which was if you don’t come to my 21st then i will break up with you. I only gave him the ultimatum as i didn’t want to wait another three years for him to introduce me to his parents.
i maybe the asshole for laying that on him but i can’t take another three years of just phone calls and intimate paragraphs every anniversary. we aren’t even in a long distant relationship yet act like one. i want to experience date nights, going to restaurants, picnics ect. he keeps telling me to wait but i think hearing the same thing for three years is just boring me out. i stopped asking him and inviting him to outings with my friends bc i just know i’m going to get the same answer. it does suck bc my friends have partners and they always bring them along, it hurts deep inside bc i don’t know how long i have to wait to experience what they have.
i love larry with my full heart, i enjoy our time we do get to spend, i love the freedom i get and the trust he lays with me. this is my first long term relationship and l want it to be my last. i believe that larry is my soulmate because we both have so much in common but it sucks that larry situation has to be like this. it got me thinking on what my next move should be. i’m stuck and need advice on what i should do next.

Why does my drinking Bud Light offend you?
May 30, 2023 4:39 pm • Last Updated: May 30, 2023 4:41 pm
By Mike DiMauro
Day Assistant Sports Editor
[[email protected]](mailto:[email protected])
News item: Anthony Bass, a pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays, shared a video Monday via Instagram endorsing an anti-LGBTQ boycott of brands such as Target and Bud Light.

"Here's the reason biblically why I believe Christians have gotta be boycotting Target, Bud Light, and any other corporation that's pushing the things they're pushing,” Bass said. “I think a lot of people make this into a political issue, or they say, 'Oh, what's the big deal?’

“This is evil, this is demonic, we won't stand for it, we're not going to go to the stores anymore and we're not going to give you our money.”

It would be impolite to wish that Mr. Bass, who throws a ball for a living, blows out his elbow. Perhaps then he could simply blow it out his tailpipe.

Because I’ve grown tired of sanctimonious and hypocritical moral outrage over what Target and Bud Light are “pushing,” while it’s permissible that Bass and his ilk get to “push” their beliefs on the rest of us.

Example: In the last two months or so, I’ve been questioned a half dozen times in public as to why I’m drinking Bud Light. Seems people like Bass have objected to Anheuser Busch’s marketing partnership with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney. Their boycott of Bud Light has led to a decrease in sales both locally and nationally. (Local bar and restaurant owners say Bud Light sales are down almost 30 percent.)

It is their right, of course, to boycott the product. I’m just curious as to why what I’m drinking is their business. I drink Bud Light because I like it. And I’m still drinking Bud Light because I will not marginalize people based on gender, race, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. I’m respectful enough to support someone else’s desire to evolve into another gender. And I’m not stupid enough to believe that my decision to drink Bud Light changes who I am or what I stand for in any possible way.

But I wonder why it’s so important for people — and the questions to me haven’t all come from men — to announce their disdain for a bottle of beer, tacitly implying their sexuality is “normal.” Remember this one and write it down: If you are truly comfortable with who you are, you needn’t announce anything to anyone.

And yet to further illustrate how screwed up this country really is, there’s this: Anheuser-Busch hasn’t merely been accused of alienating its traditional customer base with the partnership, but some LGBTQ+ campaigners have also criticized the company for not defending its ties with Mulvaney.

Amid all the finger-pointing and fear-fanning, the truth hides in the corner, too scared to emerge. The truth is that we are supposed to think critically, weigh evidence from both sides and then make up our own minds. Instead, we’ve become a country hell bent on legislating whatever cause we think is right and just, while burying the other side from all consideration.

It’s political tribalism. All or nothing. One side or the other. If you’re not in agreement with every morsel of the transgender movement, you are a snarling, hating, infidel. If you’re not in total agreement with Anthony Bass and his beliefs, you’re going to wither in hell.

But what if — and hold on to your ascots here — two conflicting positions can still be true? Example: What if I support Bud Light’s decision to use a transgender influencer, but also believe that transgender high school athletes belong in their own division?

I disagree with the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference’s policy complying with a state law that requires all high school students be treated according to their gender identity. We should consider a sports-centric law that acknowledges sports' unique challenges and accommodates the physical component for success that exists virtually nowhere else in society.

Sex discrimination in education, health care, housing and financial credit have no place in this country. But we must — must — realize and accept that sports require a physical component to succeed that calls for different guidelines.

Put it this way: Applying to a school or for health care, housing or financial credit requires no physical component to succeed. Sports require speed, strength and agility and do not fit under the same umbrella. And yet sports are routinely shoved into the same arguments about unfair treatment. Injustices get piled on for rhetorical usefulness, even though they're not applicable.

The male born composition has inherent physical advantages, rare exceptions noted. But in the aggregate, there are physiologic differences between biological males and females. I don’t believe writing that makes me transphobic. We should respect a person’s pronoun of choice. But that doesn't mean we have to blindly agree with claims that are not supported by science.

Yet that appears to be the new end game in this country. Blind agreement. Their side or yours. And here I sit, sipping my Bud Light, trying to figure out why so many of us act like the last three letters of Anthony Bass’ last name.

This article pretty much sums up exactly how I feel about the situation. Bud Light basically sent someone a can with her image celebrating a milestone. The fact it turned the beer into enemy number one doesn’t surprise me considering the vitriol that has become commonplace in our country. I have had plenty of private messages regarding a video I posted supporting a beer, and more importantly a human being. Most have been vehemently against my support of both and relish the chance to send me a screen shot of Bud Lights stock on a daily basis with a “Go woke, Go broke” ending. I believe much of the vitriol comes from news and talk radio which is why Spotify now fills my vehicle with music instead of talk. I ask everyone to limit their news intake to 30 minutes per day regardless of your party affiliation to center your life. Sometimes my radio will land on a “news station”, and I can feel my blood pressure rise as the most divisive topic of the day is being discussed with a majority of the facts not being considered. I am not recommending folks to ignore what’s happening in our world, but would point out that our country has survived many decades without the need for “up to the second” news reports. Most of the things we worry about will never happen and it seems our country is living in a constant state of fear which is certainly to blame for the vitriol. There will never be a point where everyone in the country will collectively say we are all happy with everything, but I still have a deep believe that with constructive conversations and true empathy we can get us close. When I get my boat in the water I would love to have an ice cold Bud Light while listening to my relaxing boat playlist, and of course talking with my favorite sports writer. That’s an invitation Mike. Great article.

“Bud Light sales are down between 26% and 35% nationwide additionally Budweiser and other AB brands (Michelob Ultra, Busch Light and Natural Light to name a few) have also taken a hit of around 11%.”

All the more reason to explain what set this off. Completely unhinged.

“My take, buy Coors stock now”
And that statement reinforces my point since Coors has been a decades long supporter of LGBT rights probably the biggest supporter (it all began with a workegay alliance boycott ironically… or not)
“Coors Light has been a sponsor of The Center and Denver PrideFest for decades,” says Rex Fuller, CEO of The Center on Colfax. “The work we have been able to do at The Center over the last four decades would not be possible without this support and we are grateful for it.”
Beyond supporting Denver PrideFest, Molson Coors has a distinguished history of supporting LGBTQ communities across the country, with significant support for organizations such as Human Rights Campaign (HRC), Matthew Shepard Foundation, National Amateur Gay Athletics Association of America, National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, LGBT Victory Institute, Out & Equal, and One Colorado.
In addition to these partners, Molson Coors works with local LGBTQ organizations in key communities through its Tap Into Change program. Annually, the summer program donates more than $100,000 to these organizations with a consistent growth in impact each year. Events take place in each city to help raise additional funds, awareness, and support for the missions of these local organizations. Over the past 10 years, Tap Into Change has raised nearly $600,000 for local LGBTQ and HIV/AIDS nonprofits.

This is even though like 2006, 2010 and 2014 they had to go through boycotts for this. And they did shrink back in response, but also came right back and didn’t move backwards for long.

And what will I do?
Continue drinking Corona because I drink what I drink.
It’s damn near impossible to do a successful boycott long term. The web of corporate connections means when you think you’re hurting one, it’s actually benefitting another one connected to it.
The beverage brand that owns Budweiser, Corona, and Stella Artois, is suing US beer-maker Constellation Brands for using the Corona brand name in a hard seltzer, according to a lawsuit filed Monday.

Beverage giant Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev) acquired Corona’s parent company, Grupo Modelo, in 2013, but US antitrust regulators required it to sell the company’s US-based business to Constellation. AB InBev retained rights to the products in other markets, and the deal gave Constellation the rights to produce Corona and other Modelo brands in the US.

Robin- not certain this article nor all the comments will move the needle. Bud Light sales are down between 26% and 35% nationwide additionally Budweiser and other AB brands (Michelob Ultra, Busch Light and Natural Light to name a few) have also taken a hit of around 11%. Bud Light has been the best selling beer in the USA for over 20 years and the normal volume of sales is 27 million barrels a year or 1134 million gallons. A 30% drop equals a loss of 340 million gallons a year. My take, buy Coors stock now

Do people realize that Bud Light sent a pack of specially made cans with the person’s face on it and did a minute long or so bit released on like TicTok? It wasn’t some big nationwide PR campaign yet it rubbed someone the wrong way (or so they would like us to think) and it snowballed into this.

I don’t ever want to hear about people calling “the libs” snowflakes or use their center liberal stances as a weakness. These champions of “conservatives” are gullible whiny babies.

I watched in real time a bunch of idiots blow something up out of nothing and then saw them flocking to the internet people with their influencer pages and podcasts and publications where immediately they were being hawked “anti-woke” beer and all these other wares, often made by the same places they are boycotting for double the price.
There is a whole market opening up to people that will only get their businesses off the ground (temporarily for a quick cash grab) by using these outrage tactics and capitalizing (literally) on impaired brains that as Mr. DiMauro correctly observed “Blind agreement. Their side or yours”
Bless your little void of empathy and common sense hearts. Don’t spend all your money in one place now, spread the wealth to these people selling you overpriced junk.

If you can’t get elected because of your governing skills you’re going to have to try to get elected by getting people angry and hateful. The right wing loves doing that. It’s their bread and butter.

I always liked this formulation: “In the first place, what makes it any of you business? And in the second place, my reasons for saying yea to [whatever it is that offends you] are at least as valid (and maybe more so) than yours for nay. And in the third place, what makes it any of your sodding business in the first place?” I agree wholeheartedly with your plea for reason and tolerance. Not to seem argumentative but rather to add information to the discussion, though, you might be interested in this blog post from a biologist about the supposed physiologic advantages a trans man or woman has over a cis athelete:

For me… Bud Light as a “beer” sucks. I would rather support local breweries that provide far better beers. As far as this column… as far as AB selecting this influencer in their campaign I have no opinion on it or that person. Up to each to decide for themselves.

Regarding this column actually Mike what you are writing is basically the same as the boycott and the changes in attitudes (political divide) of the country. Often used by politicians on BOTH sides of the aisle screaming to be open, defending one´s right to choose, freedom of speech etc.. and this is the most important part..”unless it does not validate their opinion or view”. This is exactly what you are writing. So if someone elects to boycott something and we know the WOKE police and Leftists enjoy not only condemning opposing viewpoints to the point of boycotting, attacking employers for the “views” of their employees etc… and demanding they be removed from the position their are in. So if someone boycotts something let them… I would ask you… why does it offend you that others are using their constitutional right by boycotting (freedom of speech). I always respect other´s opinions and even when we do not agree. Sadly we live in a world where people are afraid to speak up due to the potential ramifications. None of us will always agree and I know the powers to be are trying to “force” us to all be uniform in our opinions which is sad. And btw Bud Light is terrible anyway… How about you focus on sports.

Ironic you drink because you like it but will continue to drink it because “ I will not marginalize people based on gender, race, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation.” Not just because you like it.

I think the cancel culture is terrible whatever your political party of choice is. Very sad that social media has done this to us. I have good friends that I can no longer talk politics with because of the “great divide” that enriches social media giants.

A Bud Light story: Several years ago while in Ireland my son and I toured the Guinness brewery. Of course there’s a pub on the top floor and while getting a pint of Guinness the bar I notice several taps Bud Light. I asked the bartender “why in God’s name are you serving THAT stuff in here?” He replied that it’s the best selling beer in Ireland. Go figue!

2023.06.03 12:44 SuperSqank I recently experienced an event I have never seen before.

Last night, I experienced an event in Tomodachi Life I never knew existed (and I have been playing the game regularly for the past 2 and a half years). I turned the game on at around 10PM and I went to the fountain to get my daily donations. When I went to the fountain however, the game played a cutscene I had never seen before. I was unable to quit out of the cutscene.

So basically, an unmarried couple (who were not happy with each other) were out at the fountain, chilling. After some time, One of them said "I had fun" and the other said "me too" and then the game said something along the lines of "(X) and (Y) are friends again" (they were not in a fight as a sidenote). After that, the cutscene ended and the game went back to normal.

Has anybody else seen this? I couldn't capture any footage or photos of it and I hope I managed to explain it well enough. I have been playing the game regularly for the past 2 and a half years and I have not only never witnessed it before but I had also never heard of it even existing before. I'm not sure of the exact requirements needed for this event so I don't know if it happened because I met an extremely specific sets of requirements or if I was just lucky. I'm curious to hear if anybody else is aware of this rare event.

2023.06.03 12:43 Reasonable_Guess_311 Wait and see approach for umbilical hernia

I am a female aged 67. About three weeks ago i noticed a lump near my naval. It seemed to just appear all of a sudden. It’s not visible but can be felt when standing. I went to the doctor the next day and he said it’s the beginning of a umbilical hernia. My naval is not protruding and I’m not in any pain. He told me to he wasn’t recommending any treatment for now and to come back if I have pain or the lump starts growing. I had a colon resection a year and a half ago and this lump is close to the incision. Is this wait and see treatment the usual approach? If I need surgery to repair this it seems like sooner would be better. I would think he would at least send me for a CT scan to get a better idea of what’s going on. Any thoughts?

2023.06.03 12:43 debtsandbooze Why don't pubs have quiz machines any more?

I used to love playing on quiz machines in pubs around 15 years ago and nearly everywhere had one. There was so many good games and you could stretch out a fiver between a group for ages.
Don't get me wrong, I love a quiet and traditional pub but why have these machines all disappeared? They seem to have been replaced with plain gambling ones, with just roulette or slots.
If you do manage to find one there's a good chance it won't have been updated since around 2012

2023.06.03 12:42 JesslyHallows Is it me?

My partner has never had a high sex drive. But recently he's not wanting it at all. We have a child but she's nearly 3 so it's not because he's tired from looking after her etc. He started a new job end of last year, he works nights but we were still having regular sex. I have put quite a bit of weight on since our daughter was born so I'm thinking it could be that? He has also started smoking weed after his night shifts and since he started smoking it he seems to be less interested in any intimacy. He still gives me a cuddle and kiss every now and then like before he goes to work or before he goes to sleep. We're both 30 next year. Any advice would be appreciated 👍

Hello! 22F here from the university near Megamall (iykyk). Working for almost a year now.
I'm looking for constant quality guy friends (at least one naman pls), someone who I can gain a different perspective from. I have quality girl friends na kaya I'm looking for guy friends naman. Someone who can get along with my very energetic personality. Syempre, dapat with substance din - someone I can talk to about the most random things to the deep existential thoughts.
Other things about me - I'm a plus size (if that matters). Black cat energy (can be intimidating but I've been told I have a very bubbly personality din). I'm from the East. I can drive, I can meet with you halfway once we're comfortable with each other (cos hello as a social butterfly I need real life interactions din).
We can exchange pictures (if that's impt to you) to set your expectations about me.
If you're g, send me a dm w a short intro about yourself (di kita papansinin pag walang intro bahala ka diyan magbasa ka).
That's all, thank yew.
(And yes, bago account ko bcos nalaman na ng friends ko yung old reddit ko huhuhu. Kung kilala mo ko, you don't know me!)

2023.06.03 12:38 Ok_Anybody5099 Delete this game

This piece of domestic unethical product is so fucking bad, there are so much things that suck in this "game". And the devs don't even care as long as they get money. These fuckers should be sent to hell.
Here are some of my problems with this game:
  1. Balance. This game is so fucking unbalanced that it's unbelievable. Some of the unbalanced characters are Monkey King, Itu, Azuma and Yunlin and a lot more that I don't remember. "Well each of these characters have their unique abilities and talents" this doesn't change the fact that these characters are unbalanced. Just look at Yunlin's abilities, a good stun, a good teleport that doesn't punish you unless your opponent has godly reaction, and an excellent heal and she doesn't even need to access her shadoe form to use those, and with full shadow bar she can use 3 abilities in row and that's super unbalanced.
  2. Matchmaking. Why the fuck you give me opponents that have 2 - 3 higher dojo than mine, plus their characters are very high level and also max talents. I just straight up forfeit because 1 - 2 of their attacks and I already lost half of my HP bar.
  3. Camping. These motherfuckers are so fucking annoying and stupid, I want to step on their balls as hard as I can. "LOL skill issue camping is easy to counter" unless you are playing against a very bad camper, camping is nearly impossible to counter. Even if you manage to win against a very good camper, what for? 10 trophies? You waste your time on getting this little amount of a reward? Campers just waste your time and its not fun to play against them because you are also forced to camp. It gets even worse if your opponent uses an unbalanced character. Because of these bastards playing PVP isn't even fun anymore.

2023.06.03 12:34 JoshAsdvgi THE KIND HAWK


A LONG time ago, in a happy Hopi village, there lived a little boy.
His mother loved him so much that she dressed him in a pretty shirt and embroidered moccasins.
One day the boy wandered away from the village, over the plain, and a band of fierce Navaho Indians swooped down and bore him off.
They carried him to their camp, where the squaws took his shirt and moccasins away, and gave them to the Chief's son.
Then they made the boy work all day, and gave him so little to eat, that, in a few weeks, he grew thin and sick.
Now, near the Navaho camp was a high bluff on which lived a kind-hearted Hawk.
It often flew over the camp, and saw the boy working hard, and never playing with the other children.
So one day, when all the Navahos were gathered together at the Chief's lodge, the Hawk flew down and hovered over the boy's head.
"Oh, do not kill me!" begged the boy.
"I am not going to hurt you," answered the Hawk, "I am sorry for you.
Jump on my back, and hold on to my wings, and I'll carry you away."
The boy jumped on its back, and held on tight, and the bird flew up in the air.
It passed over the place where the Navahos were gathered, and when they saw the boy on the back of the Hawk, they were filled with rage and wonder.
The bird flew to the high bluff, and put down the boy, then it went back to the camp.
It swooped down on the Chief's little son, and pulling off his embroidered shirt, carried it to the boy.
Then the Hawk returned to the camp again, and taking a pair of handsome moccasins off another boy, carried them to the bluff.
The Navahos were terribly frightened, and packing up their goods, left the place.
The Hawk first dressed the boy, then fed him on Rabbit-meat, and other good things.
After that it took him on its back and flew with him to his mother.
Then, without waiting to be thanked, the bird flew away again to its bluff.
