    Anyone else slightly disappointed?

    in Gaming Discussion on 13 June 2018

    Games I was most excited for going into E3: Final Fantasy 7 Remake - Nothing, nada, zilch Last of Us 2 - no release date given, and somehow slightly less excited than I was before, possibly due to lack of Joel/Ellie working together Cyberpunk - Wasn't thrilled with the trailer - no gameplay - no release date Death Stranding - Trailer and Gameplay met expectations, but no release date...

    Which E3 2018 Press Conference/Event Did You Enjoy Most?

    in Gaming Discussion on 12 June 2018

    I only watched 4 or so of them and wasn't overly impressed with any. If Sony would have given some release dates that probably would've been enough to push them over the top, but they didn't, so then I was left with little to be excited about (though the game made by Remedy made me happy). Nintendo didn't announce any new games I plan on buying, so... I dunno. I know people are excited about...

    Which ones are you getting - RDR 2, COD BO4 and BF 5

    RDR2 is the only one I'm even remotely interested in (and I'm very interested in it)....

I like it when Nicki Haley is up there talking shit to all of those people though, I would support her as the first female president. I would say almost all of that boils down to the massive failure of our public education...

Mostly teens who worked a summer job I would guess. I was $18,000 over the "line" so I wasn't even close. You just know absolutely nothing about taxes and think you do, which is even sadder. I mean, I have a link that says...

    The last link shows 27% pay no taxes or (more likely) receive money back. Another 18% pay no income tax but credits don't quite make up the difference in payroll (SS, etc). 56% or so pay income tax (as well as payroll, etc...)...

What does that mean? I paid $2,200 in federal taxes. I did not "get it all back" Looks to me you are very close to the line - It used to be 51% but now its closer to 43% based on what I just looked up. Also,...
