  1. Well, as a Rachel, I am more than happy to welcome you as another Rachel! (I mean, I already knew that was your name, but it’s extra special when someone chooses that name for themselves!)
  2. Apparently I am Dimitri and I also matched with Dimitri in the boyfriend quiz Makes sense, Dimitri could use some self-care
  3. I’ve nearly completed all four routes (almost finished Church) and for me it’s: 1. Blue Lions 2. Golden Deer 3. Church 4. Black Eagles This is why Black Eagles is in last place for me. I was hoping for more nuance from the plot and for Edelgard to surprise me with some good reasoning, but I actually feel Edelgard is more sympathetic/understandable in Blue Lions and that Black Eagles made her seem more villainous than I was expecting.
  4. I’m a documented immigrant. Immigrants, documented or undocumented, do not qualify for most kinds of benefits, period. Medicare and social security are unavailable for documented immigrants until the immigrant has either been present in the US for 40 quarters (so 10 years) or has worked the equivalent of 40 quarters. Additionally most documented immigrants have minimum income requirements placed upon their immigration status (exceptions are asylum seekers and, I believe, lottery card winners). Not sure what the requirements are these days but in 2008 I had to prove I had access to income of at least $37,500/year in order to immigrate. So, simply, benefits aren’t going to immigrants. I did qualify for unemployment and FMLA but that was because I had paid directly into those programs through work. I’ve also been paying social security and Medicare taxes since I immigrated but I cannot take advantage of those.
  5. I also played Blue Lions first, then I did Edelgard’s route and finally I’m currently on the Golden Deer. Blue Lions: Black Eagles: Edelgard:
  6. Oh hey, thanks! I wanted to know what would happen if you did this (I had the same thoughts as you) but I chickened out. It was still rough, though! I’ll echo what many have been saying: - the monastery and world-building - the likable cast - better-fleshed out characters that aren’t one-note caricatures - a lot of decently written female characters, I can’t remember the last time I played a game where I actually enjoyed the female characters - the voice acting is decent all-around so far!
  7. Dedue, Annette and Mercedes have all been stars so far; however, Felix has had some amazing stat growths and critical hit rates. Just need him to level up a little more!
  8. Woohoo! Congratulations Shoblongoo! Lily is beautiful! (I found giving birth to a bigger baby easier, myself. I think gravity helps! It was worse with my 7 lb 3 oz kid than with my 9 lb 3 oz kid).
  9. This is what I have heard so far (from anyone else not able to watch, like me): - Trump paying someone to bid on a portrait of himself (Trump), he then reimbursed himself with funds from his charity and the portrait stayed with him. (With handwritten notes from Trump detailing these plans?) - Receipts showing clearly that Trump paid Stormy Daniels hush money. - Trump asked Cohen to lie to Congress and elsewhere numerous times (with a lot of witness proof). - Trump lying about the value of his properties to pay lower taxes. - Trump inflating his assets to secure loans. Specifically he claimed his net worth doubled between 2012 and 2013 because he added a value for his personal brand of $4 billion. - Cohen says there is other illegal activity the House isn’t aware of that SDNY is investigating. A lot of this we already knew. Republicans present in general: ignoring any and all actual evidence and focusing on smearing Cohen’s character (not that they can do much else). A couple of Democrats appear to have found their spines, that’s good, and about time!
  10. My father-in-law is an alcoholic (now 13 years teetotal); his father drank himself to death, as a result my husband is wary of alcohol and drinks very rarely as he recognizes that alcohol addiction is rampant in his family. From his perspective, alcohol is dangerous. Most of the people he knows who drink are alcoholics. Yet he also recognizes that millions of people drink alcohol without becoming addicted and without it ever affecting their health. It’s the same for weed; as Shoblongoo says, many millions of people smoke weed, probably far more than you can imagine. Yet weed by itself is far, far less dangerous than alcohol - you’re not going to die from weed poisoning. So if anything, comparing weed to alcohol does a disservice to weed.
  11. Been a while since I posted here but I’ve been following the Mueller investigation closely and there’s a lot of interesting developments from the past few weeks. The memo on Manefort was scorching. On a note relevant to the past few posts, since I last frequented here I’ve gone from working for Bay Area tech start-ups to a weed company in Washington State and it’s certainly changed my opinions on weed, as well as proving why legalization is the way forward. At the very least the latter is run with far more integrity and honesty than any of the tech companies I worked for, as well as actually contributing a significant amount in taxes. The customer demographics are startling, too; a considerable percentage of customers are either seniors or veterans.
  12. This is because serial killers can remain ‘hidden’ if their killings aren’t ever connected by law enforcement or a nosy reporter. But how would you disguise mass shootings in other countries? Are you really proposing that whole countries are hiding mass shootings happening within their boundaries from the rest of the world?
