Lavander doesn't smell good.

Caffeine is the widest spread drug used around the world, and we should be doing a lot more research and possibly restricting it more.

I miss lime skittles.

It's Okay to be agnostic, it's okay to admit that you don't have all the answers.

money will not buy happiness.

Nothing is as ever as good as you remember it being.

Christmas is not a christian holiday, neither is easter.

If you are ever so sure of something that you cut off the possibility of being wrong, that something has blinded you with a Dogma.

People are not naturally good, that's why you have to strive for it.

America is not the greatest country in the world, but it isn't completely without merit.

Technology will probably be the end of us as a species.

Right? It just fits perfectly to the hand. Yea, the X button really messes with you when you switch back and forth. I mean, you do get used to it again, but for the first hour or two as you play, it can be jarring.

Do recommend Gamepass tho. Can't recommend it enough. Amazing deal if you haven't gotten it already [think its like 1 dollar trial].
Yes, yes it does. Grip is better and less likely to slide out of place especially when it’s hot and hands might start to get a bit sweaty or just slide cause it happens. The sticks, maybe it just seems like it a big difference and maybe it’s cause my main and original ps4 controller is old and the left stick has the rubber coming off and part got pulled a bit off to get rid of that loose material feeling. (My other two I bought each has one button that’s problematic. So don’t use those much to more accurately compare) but the Xbox sticks are better designed for the thumb and feels way more improved with the indent and how your thumb fits while gaming. (Less sliding during certain main points of a lot of thumb/stick action) while also they are just better placed instead of being right there by each other. Small things that seem to make such a difference. I do believe those two newer controllers on PS are better grip wise then the original and feel better, but overall Xbox is just ahead of Ps in that regard.

Oh yeah that threw me at first. But even the Lb and Rb threw me a bit for some reason at first. Or L2 and R2 for PS4 mainly though it was the options and share buttons, out of new habit was going to the Xbox and old PS areas to hit that pause and remembered PS4 doesn’t roll Like that. Haha about hit the wrong button.

But yeah, the game pass and EA deal I got. It’s great and allows me to play old favorites and try others without paying for them all over again or wasting money on new games that I don’t like after trying. (Mainly the former) Also great deals on games that are kinda new but can still be expensive. PSN has the PSN plus that is similar but game pass gives a lot more seemingly, new to Xbox so maybe it’s early for me to say, but a vast library of older games, complete series too compared to PS plus.

One big difference that took me a shameful amount of time to figure out and search out, was how to delete individual files or character save files pending the game without deleting the whole thing on Xbox.

Sports related; But the older I get the more I question who the aka GOAT of any sport really is..... Example: MJ isn’t the goat and no I’m not saying it’s Lebron either.

You can go by numbers, pure skill or what have you. But I question if either is really the goat and why Lebron is even in the discussion right now.

I wasn’t born in the era to have actually watched some of these legends play; But did everybody just overlook Kareem in favor of MJ or Lebron? Is it because Kareem was a center and didn’t have the ball in his hands all the time? Do they not know his pre-nba basketball history and numbers in addition to his pro career?

Anyways just my opinion accompanied by questions and thoughts to go along with it.

no hate to people who like timothee chalamet but (looks wise) he's average. i don't think he's anything that special. if he wasn't an actor, he'd just be a regular average looking dude, but since he is a celeb i think people hype him up more. he's cute and all but as i said, nothing special.

Here's a bunch of SPICY controversial onions of mine I keep to myself because I have a "quiet nice girl" image to keep up lmao. I would give further arguments on why I think these things but I am exhausted, I can confirm this is all based on my personal experiences.

  1. Avengers infinity war was better than Avengers Endgame
  2. Substance abuse does not make up for your lack of personality
  3. Boba tea or Bubble tea whatever it's called is overrated and not even that good
  4. All game consoles are valid and one is better than the other is all based on subjective stances
  5. Sakura from Naruto is not useless and I don't get why she is so hated
  6. Child Sexual Abuse is one of the most sickening and vile acts of evil that someone could ever do and yet it is committed by even the most famous and popular of people. It is not talked about enough and yet it is terrifyingly common
  7. Self Inserts are not bad
  8. Trends are not bad, a person who bashes on it is telling more about themselves than the person who likes the mainstream
  9. The US police force is too militarised
  10. Vaccines are not harmful and people who refuse to have them are selfish and purposely risking other people's lives for their own self belief.

What a spicy hot take you've got there. It's almost as spicy as a communion wafer.
You would be surprised by how many people now refuse vaccines because of all these controversial non-approved journal articles they read on the internet hahaha like yes Karen it does contain this scary sounding chemical but that chemical is natural and can be found in things like those organic bananas you're buying.

There are also many different reasons people wont take them including religion and diet lifestyles like being vegan. Being a life sciences student, I have to respect these things when really I find it dumb hah.

I'm aware of the anti-vaxx movement, my point was that being for vaccines is not, in any shape or form, an unpopular opinion.
Okie doke it is just my opinion I wanted to share because I feel strongly about it hah, I personally don't see the harm in that. Sorry if it bothered you.

For most people Kareem was simply not the guy in the NBA, it was Bird/Magic -> MJ -> Kobe -> Bron. You'd have to be pretty old to have seen his entire career after all. Kareem instead gets put in the same bubble as Wilt/Russel in the sense that they are like myths of a bygone era who are also victims of simply being big men(which you mentioned). Big men have always been looked down on because they are not flashy enough to captivate fans and take "safe" higher percent shots. This is especially true in today's game where the holy three pointer is all some care about.

Kareem has the resume for GOAT without a doubt, but Bird/Magic were the ones that revived the league after a not so great 70s(another unfair knock against Kareem). Then MJ came along and changed the game forever.

Pretty much it's just unfortunate circumstances.

Now see I get that and even Bird sees disrespect by some people yet he was elite and a goat level talent without the typical athletic skill set and body but proof IQ can be just as deadly. (A legendary 3 ball level, tenacity and D helps too) Magic I know gets a lot of respect like those others and Bird and rightfully so as well. But I just can’t bring myself to say Lebron is GOAT when I look to past eras and the legends of older times. He’s hall fame elite level without a doubt, but GOAT is difficult for me to go along with, especially when looking at Kobe and plenty of people say he’s not even top ten all time. (Not all but plenty of so called experts)

I never truly saw any of those greats play only highlights and such, (born in 92) But sad to see Kareem get diminished due to being a big man who’s flash was more skyhook and not ankle breaking or flashy dunk related, etc. I realize a longer way of saying I agree and see your point, but still sad. Wilt is a player id of loved to see play in his prime, the guy doesn’t have the rings like the amount of Kareem or Russell and etc, but he had insane ability and talent and the stats are out of this world. Russell too for playing less years then Kareem and Wilt but had so much success packed into that time played.

I guess I’m learning more and more that I’m old school of mind and basketball love. I enjoy the dribble game and 3 well enough, but that mid range and interior game is more my style and the facilitating finesse as well that could be great even without the flash though flash is always nice. (Pistol Pete and those guys were one of a kind that changed the game)

Yeah that’s true, but also unfair at the same time. (Like you said already) I mean less I’m wrong a lot of the nba decline came from the way things were done and ran by the commissioner and crew not just because style of play started to change with successive generations. I believe games were on tape delay right? So live games and how they were broadcast were part of it all. On court skill and the players who played at the highest level still had that talent to become and be legends. I look at iceman and Dr J and think damn.... those guys could play and do stuff nobody else could at the time but they seem forgotten sometimes. Same with Wilkins. Bill Walton was low key revolutionary in some ways and skill was insane if not for injuries he could have had one hell of a career and even with he’s still a hall of famer who had a great career. Jack sikma too but more due to not being Kareem level and not injury but he left a legacy and was like Walton, was Jokic before Jokic and even before the great Arvydas Sabonis who preceded Jokic and gets compared to.

I mean I get the reasons folks have but some are just unfair and overplayed. More and more I look back and explore history especially in sports and basketball more so and get to thinking about a lot of things and becoming post career fans of legends i never actually saw play except in highlights I search out. MJ was great without a doubt, same with Kobe and Lebron. But always wonder if the true Goat is other players people talk less about in that conversation.

But agreed. A longer way of coming to this conclusion but started typing and kept going.

if you bullied and tormented actual emo/goth/alternative people for years due to their taste in music/fashion and are now suddenly dressing in a similar way because it's currently "trendy", you suck.
