    I guess what he got from Spotify largely outweighs any YouTube revenue. RIP to JRE YouTube subscribers.

    I am a huge fan. DOOM 2016 is still a severely under rated masterpiece. The campaign is huge and has lots of secrets. The online multiplayer is some of the best there is ( when the servers are doing good). Plus Mick Gordon working on the soundtrack takes the game to a higher level. I think DOOM Eternal could go down as the best FPS we’ve ever had.

    The bike I have does have smaller tires, 20” if I’m not mistaken. But I fold it up and carry it pretty much everywhere. Costco let’s me fold it and put it into my cart around the store. I usually leave it in the trunk of my vehicle until I need it or keep it in my work office. I do not have experience with any other traditional bike. This was my first adult bike purchase and I bought because it was similar to the bikes I used as a kid (cruiser brakes, no shocks or gears). I will admit that it can be a tough ride at times due to lack of gears and smaller tire size but the convenience really shines through and I constantly get weird looks and compliments.

    I do see quite a few people in my city commuting on the 10” tires which are also foldable and can be taken literally anywhere.

    Yes I live in a dense city and biking is my go to transportation. I do have a vehicle but try not to use it for anything that can be done on bike. I have only ever used a Dahon Speed Uno for all of my bike activities. I really enjoy the minimalist design and it is one sturdy wagon. Last year I was able to get in around 600 miles in. Trying to beat that for this year.

    I’ll add in that the bag I currently use is the Patagonia Nine Trails 28L. It has been incredible for everything I have done so far.

    She is very talented and is a smoking hot fox. I say she just quit twitter altogether but it’s hard for celebrities to do that when getting face time and attention is part of the job.

    I was able to finish The Expanse season 4 this week. Really great show in my opinion. I’m not familiar with the books but now I feel like I have no choice because I enjoy the show so much. I really enjoy the writing as well. They seem self aware enough and don’t try to feed the audience any bullshit. I also really enjoy the scientific explanations they use throughout the show. I genuinely feel for the actors during those scenes cause scientific terminology is hard.

    It just doesn’t make sense. Why wait for them to enter a crowded intersection and THEN open fire? Guys were also hiding behind civilian vehicles for cover! Seems like best case was to try and take them down/spike strip in an open area with no traffic. The driver would have been at risk either way unfortunately.

    Trump wants to be like his buddies putin and kim-jong. He can see that they answer to no one and have complete control of the country, that’s exactly what trump is trying to turn the US presidency into. He has said multiple times on various mediums that he believes presidents can do whatever they want and he is fighting so that future presidents can not be held accountable AKA cannot be questioned or stopped by an equal power in government.
