    Also, am I able to redeem all the keys and then provide the ones I want to give away, or should I use the 'gift' links provided on humblebundle instead?

    Available


    As an aside (it's not a necessity for the giveaway), but I would encourage those who can to donate as well. If you can't afford to, that's obviously okay. Even if it's $5 or so, any amount helps! This is affecting us on a global scale, and the groups providing help for those effected need help to keep doing what they're doing.

    PS: If I need to request permission to do the whole giveaway thing, lemme know. I don't want to cause any trouble Deimos ;)

    I've been getting back into my stoner [Rock/Metal] artists after going on a looooooong thrash binge.

    Top artists that I keep coming back to are:

    • Elder
    • Red Fang
    • The Sword (Although their 2 most recent albums are closer to classick rock. The first 4 albums are AMAZING however)

    I also recently saw the following bands in person (Underground Arts in Philly):

    • The Atomic Bitchwax
    • The Goddamn Gallows
    • Weedeater

    Loved both the Bitchwax and Goddamn Gallows. Weedeater was alright, but not my slice of pie. Their set also gave my girlfriend either a migraine or a slight panic attack since the bass was amped to the nth degree, so we ended up leaving during. GF also said she was picking up on some white supremacy themes during the Gallows set, which i didn't quite pick up on.

    OH. Also, Tame Impalas new album is fantastic, as well as Sepultura's new album. Plus the new singles that the Gorillaz have put out are mad decent. I'm a slightly bigger fan of the "Momentary Bliss" than "Desolee'".

    Like most other comments in this thread, I also had trouble with Math in college! Failed Calc 1 TWICE before passing it in a winter session (with an A- I might add), and failed Calc 2 once (before passing in a winter session with a low B). All in all, I took calc 5 times to be able to graduate from my school, when I wasn't even in the major until 2 weeks before graduation 0_0. But absolutely, I agree that you don't need to be a math person per se to do well in a programming field. If you want the degree though, you'll definitely need some determination to get through the math classes :/

    "I can't hack it anymore", said Tom, morbidly. If I think of any others, I'll add em on to this.

    The longest running debate i've had with myself seems to be much less "grand" compared to some of the other ones here. It boils down to me asking myself: "Am I an asshole". Sometimes, it's an 'in-general' context, sometimes it's more of a situational question like "am I being unreasonable in this discussion/argument". I find it hard to ever come to a conclusion on many things and this question is no different. Maybe it points to a lack of confidence on my part, or lack of knowledge, or maybe a mixture of both.

    I'm sure if you were to ask my SO, or parents, or friends, they would all say "No, of course he's not". But they don't know me like I know me. Nobody knows me how I know myself. I have done shitty things in the past, and I've done my best to be a better person after that. To "balance the scales" so to speak. There are some things I can't "atone" for, and as such I can only try to improve the good:bad ratio that I contribute to the world. My Dad gave me some very good advice in the aftermath of one of my poor choices, and I still think about it, and try to follow it to this day.

    "You can't change what's already been done. The best thing you can do now is to wake up tomorrow and try to be a better person."

    I like this thought because I've asked my dad a similar-ish question and we both disagree on how we each responded to it. My question is this: "Is true good having no bad impulses, or is it having bad impulses but not acting on them?" I suppose one needs to define what "true good" is to get anything out of the question in the first place. His answer is that "True good is the absence of 'bad'". Mine, is that "true good is the ability to forgo bad". I think it also probably gives insight into how I try to live my life, and relates to my answer farther down this thread.

    I'd like to add a thought I had while reading through this thread. The idea sounds simple, though I'm not sure how doable it would be in practice. Essentially, the idea is "linked anonymous accounts" where a single account "foo" can have multiple "linked" or "shadow" accounts (or however we want to refer to them). A moderator (or admin?) wouldn't be able to track "shadows" back to their source account, BUT any moderator actions taken against the shadow account(s) would affect the source account. Additively, where if all the shadow accounts linked to the main "bar" account keep getting reported then those would all be stuck to the main account.

    Now, the first "glaring" problem with this would be the optics, that if someone (a mod) is able to view the strikes on an account, it would only be a matter of time and effort to track down the source account. That's not the highest priority to me, but others might view things differently.

    Looking cool! I like the style of the new arena for sure :) It's gonna be used HEAVILY the next couple months I'm sure. I'm not as much into the decals and such, but I'm sure those who are will find their favorites.

    I'm hoping that the new arena doesn't have visibility issues like Sandy Shores (blinding brightness). Farmstead seemed lackluster in the design department (in my opinion), so I'm glad we're getting a stage with a lot (seemingly) of character to it.

    I try to wake up at 5am to make it there by 5:45-6, so a lot of the time that I don't make it is due to staying up late the previous night. Definitely something that I need to work on improving, but i feel the quote still rings true in that i should still go, even if I'm tired, if only to keep the schedule going. Thanks for the pep talk, I appreciate it :)

    Unrelated, when I do go, I have a serious case of fuckaround-itis. No schedule to my lifts really, so I'd like to get back on some sort of plan to really help push me increase my lifts.

    I'll be getting to the exercise portion of this eventually, but I wanted to start with something slightly different: This previous Sunday, I spent a large majority of the day on my ass playing Rocket League. Barely ate, had some coffee for breakfast and I think a cheese quesadilla for lunch. No dinner. By around bedtime, I noticed that anytime I stood, all of my limbs had tremors. As it so happens, this was also the first day that I hadn't had any alcohol for (what feels like) quite some time. Not like I was getting blitzed every day before, but it would be a medium sized glass of whiskey in ice, or a beer or two. Now I can't fully commit myself to the idea that the shakes were caused by lack of liquor yet since I barely ate as well. But it scared me into committing to a sobriety break for both January and February. The shakes didn't continue past Sunday, but I've been on my best behavior this week. We'll see how the rest of the month goes. I do catch myself thinking that "if I can do January fine then maybe I'll just stop there" but, that also feels a little disingenuous to my original goals. So, maybe i was starting to develop something and caught it.... only time will tell I guess. But the point of this whole thing is as a PSA for those who maybe are thinking they could stand to cut back, or those who can't decide if they might have an issue. Give it a shot, there's nothing detrimental to it and it could turn out helping you short and long term.

    Went to the gym yesterday for the first time in 2 weeks and feel great today. Only problem is that I couldn't fall asleep until about 1130 so I missed this morning :/ Anyone else have trouble sleeping for the first week or so after getting back into gym shape?

    Have you experienced any pain in your elbows or wrists while doing this? I have a pull-up bar, but if I use it too much, I tend to get "tendonitis" after some amount of time. It might be due to form or something, but I've never been able to get it to consistently stay away
