My fiancee also has PTSD and myself as well. It was just that when I saw just the pics in that tweet, it didn't stick out to me as anything more than just a couple of awkward nerds joking back and forth, I didn't know it extended outside of that picture. I'm sorry.

Hey don't apologize to me, it's ok. It's hard to read tone in written stuff so if I came off as being harsher than I meant it sorry about that. The last thing I want to do is cause someone else to have a bad day and I feel like I have and I'm sorry for that. You're a cool guy and I like that you feel comfortable enough here to be honest about your life.

Doesn't really matter where you work, it's just generally a good idea to avoid either influencing the other. It's a good idea to avoid anything that could give even just the appearance of impropriety. Especially if anything on work devices is logged.

Video games work story: I played kickball with a bunch of people from my workplace once after work and it was fun, we drank beers on a middle school playground at like 9:00 PM and my legs hurt the next day from falling all over myself to kick that ball. Then we went to one of my co-workers' friends house and passed out after playing Rock Band 3.

If you have a public facing position then you should probably keep your social media presence to a minimum. It's totally cool to have friends at work, but protect your career first, have a social group of friends outside of work as well.

Take up shelter in the base of my spine

This whole Nick thing would be a great time for a certain group of assholes to show that they really are about free speech and ethics a la the ACLU defending Rush Limbaugh when his medical records were seized unconstitutionally but instead they're gleefully pouncing on him because they care more about tribalism and totally sticking it to an SJW softboy cuck.

Because the other action games knew to cut the bad ideas instead of letting them clog up the cool parts.

I feel like everything before the lead up to the vampire domain is incredibly boring. One of the first longform stages you get to is slowly wading through swamps so that you don't get grabbed by nebulous swamp monsters.

To be fair it's a pretty big part of the multiplayer and an incentive to play, so it being busted by pairing you against your same team all the time is kinda important. Maybe not for news coverage but it's a nintendo game and they're really loving popular so they make news for minor things

yeah it was honestly kind of annoying to wait in the queue while the game struggled to find mayo teams. plus half the time you got stuck on the post-match stat screen until it decided there was an error and booted you out to re-queue.

unpopular teams usually win more matches though and i dunno if there's really a way to balance that.

if one of your moves in flirting is telling someone to never tell anyone else about what happened, and if you ask a woman you're just friends with and have never had a sexual interaction with to send nudes with no ramping up or casual flirting to try and open that door in a normal way, you might be a creep

that said even the people calling him out on it have pointed out that they don't want the guy to lose his job, just knock it off and for people to know that he's a bit of a creep, so its not like the initial callout was somehow out of line or borne solely of malice or performative 'wokeness.' it just got dumb on both sides because twitter dot com

The accusations have ranged from actual pedophilia to him just being a creepy "u spoke to me once so we should gently caress" dude in twitter DMs, and it turned out that the guy is pretty much just a desperate creep and that's it. The only really bad thing he did that we have demonstrable proof of is asking someone not to tell anyone about his lovely tactless failed flirting which is weird but after seeing the proof I can understand why because wow that's embarrassing

Marie was only slightly more popular than Callie and she lost like every splatfest until the last one so be prepared to not see a Marina win anytime soon
