    I read somewhere you can hop on a chat with Amazon and politely ask them to remove the ads from your Kindle. Just say you would not like to pay the $15, and they'll do it.

    I get where you're coming from, however I didn't suggest you play Twister with strangers at the park, so I feel comfortable recommending a single-player non-contact sport. Obviously, you don't feel comfortable with that, and that's completely alright. I'm just glad to hear you're staying sane and going out, which was the foundation of why I even reached out to you.

    Hope you have/had a good walk today!

    Uh, I'm sorry dude. I'd like to point out that this goes both ways: you know nothing about me either. I'm just one dumb guy, and if you were to assume the best of me (which is generally a decent practice), you'd realize I was only trying to help you out and had your best interests at heart by encouraging you to perform an activity you enjoy.

    That said, I hope you're in a place soon enough to be able to play disc golf again.

    That part was pretty cool I thought. Def took me a few tries though! There's a pretty frustrating boss encounter in the dlc, but my recommendation is to use Pierce and hit the weak spot!

    Thanks for even more explanation! Some games will always show their age but I'm curious how they've advanced this one as well

    I haven't bought a humble bundle in YEARS but this, this is too good to pass up. I saw a post here with a bunch of gifs about undertale and this is as good a time as any to pick it up. Thirty bucks later and I'm a happy man! Doesn't hurt that I can file this in my budget under "charity" lol

    You're correct, however I've used swappa for my pixel, pixel 2, wife's pixel 2, and now my pixel 3. Never had any issues. I'd recommend it

    One in three?? That's got to be anormally more than most countries right? And why is the leading theory that it's because people are drunk?

    Nearly one in three people living in the autonomous Danish Arctic territory suffered sexual abuse during childhood. Experts link the abuse to alcohol, drugs and ignorance of children’s rights
