I remember covering this topic early last year in high school. I did Public Forum debate in high school and we actually had a whole resolution that revolved around the sports industry. There was a heavy light being shined on sports stadiums because of all the tax regulations and such that they dodge.

It's crazy to really see how much the US- and specifically individual states- spend on these stadiums and how they majority of them don't end up bringing any real "new money" into local businesses (cities). Really makes you think about where your tax money goes. Love me some John Oliver.

Hair color and eyes. There are just certain combinations that work so well together. One of my favorite combinations is probably black hair and blue eyes. It's incredibly attractive.

I play bass guitar!

I'm not exactly sure what my true dream job is, but I do know for a fact that I want to travel. Not only that, but I want a job that requires me to stay social and interactive with other people. Some sort of traveling businessman if you will?

roger  ·  2395 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: The Change That Will Finally Make A Difference

That's actually a really interesting point. I have never really thought about it that way. But at the same time I can argue that someone who is higher up on the financial or social latter might refuse to believe or admit that they have a common interest with someone below them. Do you think this is a mindset that can be broken down?

roger  ·  2395 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Gamers: what games have you been playing recently, and what do you think of them?

This game is somewhat of a throwback but the other day I was looking through some of the deals that were on Xbox's homepage. I saw that Crysis 2, a game I remember watching youtubers play, was on sale (only $3.99!). I immediately bought it and I've fallen in love with the game again.

I love Crysis for it's attention to detail and unique concept. Looks like I know where Advanced Warfare got some its ideas from haha.

roger  ·  2395 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What upcoming video games are you looking forward to?

Surprised this hasn't been mentioned yet but, Kingdom Hearts 3! I remember playing Kingdom Hearts & KH2 back in late elementary school and all throughout middle school. I have so many memories with these games and the fact that KH3 is coming in the near future excites me so much. I do need to work on getting me a next gen console though!

roger  ·  2395 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Hubski, tell me a story, joke or parable that you love from your religion or culture.

My favorite parable from Christianity is probably the parable of testing servants. I just love the conclusion:

Luke 12:48

". . . From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked."

It really motivates me to work hard, stay focused, and makes me realize that sometimes, "all eyes are on you."

roger  ·  2395 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What is the Dark and How Do We Push It Back?

I have always been so afraid of facing that feeling. You hear about how so many people go through it everyday. Though some days I do slightly skim the surface of not knowing my purpose. I guess it's why I am currently trying to find something I am good at. To stay self motivated.

roger  ·  2395 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Reddit has done it again

Same here! It's currently 3 am my time and wow I have been lurking this site for about four hours.

roger  ·  2395 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What is the Dark and How Do We Push It Back?

The dark is an overwhelming sensation of boredom. Though most people don't see it this way, I believe that boredom is a dangerous thing- it can, and will, hold you back from progressing- which might lead you to regretting that you wasted so much time. I push the dark by searching for new music.

roger  ·  2395 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Reddit has done it again

All I can ask myself at this point is one thing- Where has Hubski been all my internet life? I was redirected to this site by a redditor who left behind a list of reddit alternatives. Right off the bat, I fell in love with Hubski's interface and mission. But just like a lot of other former redditors on this thread are saying, I too will miss some of Reddit's features. I was subscribed to a lot of subreddits that were not that popular, but had an excellent community.

I was willing to look past the whole fatpeoplehate dilemma, and stay on Reddit, but after this second wave of mod/admin drama, I knew it was time to leave. To all you regular Hubski users, thank you for giving me a new home. This will definitely be somewhat of a 180 in terms of content, considering I can definitely tell Hubski takes meaningful discussions seriously, but I know this is what is best for me in the long run!
