    Has anyone here watched a few of these interviews?

    I remember a while back having a discussion here on homelessness/joblessness and there were alot of people that seemed to think it was an easy thing to escape, and put blame of the individual. These videos are very mind opening, albiet hard watch, but show a needed perspective into the life's of the "lazy" homeless/jobless individuals life.

    I saw a few, pretty sad stuff. My wife asked me the other day what Skid Row was so I showed it and some other ghetto videos from Philadelphia etc. She knew it was bad but not this bad and couldn't really believe this was possible in the U.S.

    I wrote a 4 paragraph response to this and then decided I didn't want to get into to it. I'm honestly a little tired of the topic as it always goes the same way. The only thing I will say is if you want to help the homeless, stop giving them money and donate to a reputable charity or service. There are already countless food services and shelters out there that could greatly increase their support by accepting yours.

    Skid Row and areas like it are a direct result of the complete destruction of those individuals’ minds.

    But I’ll tell you what - every passing day, I am more convinced that everyone else is the victim of the same assault, but just has less severe damage. The damage leads to choices which are well-meaning, but ultimately perpetuate the same damage, or worse. It’s like a clotted vein, a positive feedback loop saves the local area from an infection or blood loss, but which slowly causes gangrene or a heart attack.

    The world is sick with a disease far worse than this corona stuff. I think it’s been this way for decades, if not centuries.

    Edit: Maybe I should have waited for page 1776 for this post.

    Makes me think of a meme I saw where the overlords of the world say okay we'll go back to 2015 and that was no where near far enough back. Pre-centralized banking at a minimum for going back.

    At a minimum.

    There would be no monopolies without government intervention.

    Didn't realize this started with talking about the homeless. Some very misleading info when it comes to homeless and the cause of their homelessness and why they remain homeless.

    That doesn't look like a downvote

    The new ori game will of the wisps is amazing, very inspiring. Both ori games are on game pass i would recommend it... the first one was pretty boring personally, i didn't finish it. Now its opening my eyes to other side scrolling platforming games, i want to try hollow knight next, hearing lots of good things

    Im scared to start will of the wisps because i dont want it to end.

    Hollow knight is cool i guess. It takes forever(like near end game forever) to get upgraded enough that it starts to feel fluid and the combat starts to shine. Its got cool mechanics that makes it stand out from other metroidvanias but otherwise the level design is poor and its a snooze between all the key fights. Just a very boring game that probably would have been overlooked if it wasnt for the art style. Either way its a ton of content for the price and worth the time(if you have it). Just dont give up from boredom or frustration too early.

    Strider(2014) is a ton of fun. Its a nonstop blast and A+ all around. Its my favorite behind Ori.

    I'm between love and frustration on the first Ori. It is absolutely gorgeous in many ways but I die a lot. I mean a lot.

    I'm at the end but only pick it up now and then. I will play the second eventually.
