This is really cool. I have a good friend who learned Q'eqchi' in Guatemala where there's a similar thing going on.
Turns out the last thing I saw him in was Brotherly Love (95-97), which I apparently used to watch.
Haha, I looked up Joey Lawrence.
Super excited for new Great Plateau Tower Stage. Pretty excited about all the characters being available, although I wouldn't have minded if they had left out Falcon.
6 or 7 years ago I used to host "Smash Night" with some close friends and coworkers. We's specifically set up tournaments with the original N64 Smash Bros. We did this weekly for several months. I might consider setting up another after Ultimate comes out, I miss some of those people.
I think it's cool they're releasing Switch controllers based on the GameCube design, plenty of people will prefer that for Smash, but I like my Pro Switch controller, I doubt I'll end up getting the GameCube version.
The difference is the location of the camera. The street corner cameras are not being monitored, they're just recording. For the general population that don't think about security cameras on a daily basis, it's understandably weird to them to find out the cameras could be open to the public to watch.
The overweight high-school dropout is being paid to monitor the cameras inside the bodega, and only at night when no one is allowed inside.
Assuming the cameras are all in public places, I have no real issues with this. I've spent a fair amount of time watching camera live streams and searching through surveillance footage for my work. Do I think this could potentially stop a crime...possibly. Will this help stop a lot of crime...No. Will this cause more false alarms for PD....Probably. Will this be used by criminals to help get away with crime....probably not.
- The Citizen Virtual Patrol, as the program is called, has been hailed by officials as a move toward transparency in a city where a mistrust of the police runs deep, rooted in long-running claims of aggressive enforcement and racial animosity. The cameras, officials said, provide a way to recruit residents as Newark tries to shake a dogged reputation for violence and crime. “This is part of building a partnership,” said Anthony F. Ambrose, who, as public safety director, oversees the city’s police and fire operations. Since the program started about a month ago, he said, 1,600 users have signed into the website,
This is a PR stunt. Not a horrible one, but I bet not a very worthwhile one either.
If you never answer your phone, people stop calling real quick. All my friends and family learned a long time ago that I don't answer my phone and only respond to texts. If the phone rings it's urgent, for work, or someone who doesn't know me very well.
So, I've never played D&D, but over the last few months I've gotten slightly obsessed and really want to play. Once I get a more regular work schedule I'm thinking of finding a group.
I don't have any ideas, but I've been watching Matthew Colville's DM series. His enthusiasm is pretty addicting, and he has 30 years of ideas he shares and encourages others to use. If you haven't seen them I recommend it.
Oh wow, you're right. Meet the Feebles came out in '89. I never new this existed. But I can't find any evidence of a lawsuit about it.
