Jenna Ortega is an industry plant


If anyone has been paying attention, her sudden and immediate rise to fame is actually very similar to how Billie Eilish just suddenly rose to fame in the pop music scene in 2018. It really feels inorganic, like it was a very plotted scheme to get her into the mainstream, to push who knows what kind of agenda.

Employment [ON] Does moving to Texas make sense financially for us?


Partner and I make a combined income of approximately 15k monthly (goes-up a little later in the year) - 300k gross.

My partner’s received a offer to move to Texas (coding jobs). The salary would be significant - 300k USD - just salary alone. Total comp higher.

The only “hick-up” would be that I would likely not be able to continue my employment in the USA. So we’d loose my source of income (~100k).

I’m obviously all for going to the US - it would afford us an opportunity to live the middle class lifestyle we’ve always wanted (house, car, kids). It also means I could focus on other tasks, or retrain and go into something more meaningful.

Partner thinks our quality of life won’t increase meaningfully, doesn’t want to be far from family, and isn’t happy about the idea of me not working.

Am I crazy thinking that this transition would be financially freeing for us and not the wrong move?

Luka is one of the most protected young stars by the media…why?


Other perennial all nba talents have always received more criticism around their deficiencies but luka continues to be the golden boy who can do no wrong.

He’s showed up fat and out of shape several seasons. He plays abysmal defense and the mavericks have consistently been in the bottom half of defensive teams in his career (except last year). His 3 point shot selection is highly questionable and is shooting 34.3% from 3 this year. His free throw shooting is consistently below average for guards and is just 73.5% this season.

His heliocentric offense is hard for other players to thrive in. Guys like Brunson and porzingis are doing better without him. He’s constantly whining all damn game to officials. He had friction with Carlisle which contributed to his departure, Kidd won’t be around very long and he’s likely going to be on his third head coach very soon.

James harden in Houston was a better player than luka is now yet got 10 times The criticism. Why are people so obsessed with luka succeeding?

- Franco-Prussian War fully implemented

The Elm dispatch can now be triggered by the North German Confederation with the "Secure South German Unity" decision, France will have to decide to act or not. If the war was to be lost by the Germans, France could take the Rhine if claimed by decision.

France was stripped of it's natural border, it is up to the 2nd Empire to reclaim it. By claiming the Benelux with a decision, France can now try to invade Belgium and even ask for the buying of Luxembourg to it's owner the King of the Netherlands if France managed to won the Franco-Prussian War

- Roman Republic path added to the Papal States (JE, events)

As the springtime of the people sweeps across Europe, the powder is set alight in Rome where the "Liberal Aggitation" has been seeking concessions from the Papal power since the Congress of Vienna. The demise of the Pontiff will however attract the wrath of countries like France and the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies who will most likely try to restore His Holiness. But fear not, great revolutionaries such as Garibaldi will join this battle between two eras.

- Garibaldi's Principat path for Roman Republic (events, JE to restore Roman Empire)

The revolution is geopolitically secure, but internally discontent is growing in the event of prolonged non-legitimacy of the government. If the "Republic Breaks", then perhaps a hero with too much power and too much recognition could rise up and stop the anarchy that is taking over Rome

- New government types for Imperial France and Garibaldi's Roman Republic

The Roman Republic takes its inspiration and legitimacy from the ancient state, but if it is to do so, why not also claim its heritage? If you were to listen to these murmurs from the Capital, what would prevent you from conquering the Mediterranean and re-establishing the Roman Empire?

- Added a game rule to turn off cut down to size diplomatic play

- Added a game rule to tweak infamy values and infamy decay

- Colonial capacity is now displayed in the topbar

- Integrated the Ultra Historical Mod Series, both Ultra Historical Research & Education and Ultra Historical Politics. This makes politics and literacy more realistic and immersive.

- Small arms are now Yankee, Dixie and Texan obsessions

Bravo LVP excuses racism but not cheating - why?


So recent leaks from the reunion said that even LVP was going in on Tom/Raquel during taping.

When Stassi and Kristen were outed for being huge racists, LVP defended them by saying they weren’t racist and that she has plenty of diverse people working for her.

When Brandi was racist to Joyce multiple times, LVP just laughed alongside it.

So why is it that when it comes to this cheating, it seems she’s finally deciding to draw a line?

Accelerating your FIRE goals via the Middle East option


I want to bring this subject up because I don't see anyone really talking about Americans working in the Middle East (Safer locations only: Kuwait, Qatar, Dubai, Oman, Turkey) as an option to accelerate your FIRE goals. It has really worked great for me.

I am currently working in Qatar. Clean, safe, nice people, things to do, bars that serve alcohol, can also buy alcohol at the state run liquor store, superb brand new underground Metro, cheap Uber rides, home to the outstanding Qatar Airways and direct flights to most all of the cool places in the world, cheap food and grocery delivery. Qatar is much smaller than Dubai, but is moving in a similar direction to Dubai and encouraging tourism. Nothing to do in Qatar on the level of Dubai yet though.

The perks of Middle East (Kuwait, Qatar, Dubai, Oman) FIRE acceleration -

Good money, but long hours. Typically 12 hour shifts with two days off per week

Housing provided free - The quality of the housing is generally great but differs per company. i am living in a really nice 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment in walking distance to food and the Metro.

No bills other than the ones you create for yourself - A cell phone bill is typically the only bill and mine is $20 per month for 4g 8 gigs of data and unlimited calls and txts. 5G is available here too.

No insurances if you don't own a car - I hate insurance companies

Lowered US federal tax liability - You can typically add 25% to your take home vs. same pay in America. The first $122'ish thousand of pay is not federally taxed. This number changes every year. Also no state taxes depending on how your state is setup for overseas work. Side note: Could be beneficial to change your state of residence before going overseas to avoid paying state taxes in states that still tax you even if you are overseas. This can be done easily if you do your research - even without doing an actualy state to state move.

World travel experience - Being on this side of the world is great for travel. Get a travel credit card for travel perks.

Cheap and excellent health care - Low monthly cost for a world healthcare plan and no copays or out of pocket costs at all for anything as long as you stay out of the US. You read that right. Go to the doctor, pay $0. Go to the hospital, pay 0$. If you need health care while in the US on vacation or something, expect deductibles and the typical BS that we live with in the US.

For example: I went to the local Turkish Hospital here in Qatar (which is super new, clean and amazing) for an ear infection and had no appointment. We typically go to what they call hospitals for a doctor visit, as they are fully featured hospitals that take walk-ins as their normal operation. I saw a real doctor and was in and out of the hospital in 15 minutes INCLUDING getting my prescription. Try that in America at any establishment. I paid $0. If I had some exotic health problem then maybe I would consider going to America for treatment, but for most everything it is far better here.

They generally like Americans in the above Middle East countries

How to find work:

I have experience with and can recommend looking for a US company doing contract work for the US government on US military bases in these countries. These include Vectrus, General Dynamics, Leidos, Ratheon, CACI and other government contract companies. These jobs are not typically well advertised on job boards such as Indeed and can sometimes take some inside info to find. (like knowing somebody working there already) The DoD contracts change all the time, and some listings for jobs are advertised even before a government contract is awarded to a company. This is frustrating, but it is the game. This just means to expect to apply for overseas jobs and expect to hear nothing for most applications.

Here is the strategy that worked for me:

Get a DoD contracting job at your local (or any) military base in the US and then use that as a springboard for your overseas adventure. This will get you the required DoD experience and security clearance stuff. Then you are an easy pickup for any overseas contract. You can then talk to your coworkers at the US military base that have experience overseas and they can discuss their experience with you before you commit to an overseas contract job.

Best bet is to google top 20 US government contract companies, then go directly to each company's web site and search their job listings from their site. This sucks, but it is what it is. You can typically search by physical location, which will get you some listings quick if you know where you want to live.

Additionally, I recommend you do a resume overhaul by someone that does it professionally on Fiver or other sites. For 75'ish bucks, one of these guys will clean up your resume and get it looking good plus make it standards complaint. Standards complaince is the key. This will make it super easy to apply on these company sites and will automatically fill in their information gathering fields for you based on what is on your resume. If your resume is not standards complaint, these fields will not auto populate for you and applying on company sites will be a lengthy and miserable effort.

Also, there are options for working for local companies in the host countries directly. This could be doing things like working for the oil companies or being a teacher at the local private schools or doing IT stuff. This option comes with lots of unknowns. Be sure to do your research as much as possible before committing to one of these positions including speaking to a currently employed American there that can guide you with any questions you may have. You will likely be working with lots of other nationalities, so be ready to learn about other cultures and deal with some language barriers.


Some countries are friendlier than others about bringing your family members. Your employer should help with this, but be ready for it to test your patience. Kids that need school will likely need a private school and this will have some cost. A spouse could find work also, but I don't know much about this. I am single and don't have any of these experiences to provide valid info on this subject.

Freedom and privacy:

Nope. If you are a gun totin' freedom of everything type person, this is not the life for you.

You will give blood to be here. Literally. They test the blood for who knows what and use it for who knows what. You will also give fingerprints to be here. They have video surveillance everywhere and some places require an App on your phone for this or that, which also tracks you. If this is a problem for you, don't come to these places. It is that simple.


Do your research, but these countries are all significantly safer than America. In some cases, the entire country is safer than the typical American small town. Let that sink in. I don't lock my apartment door unless I am sleeping. This includes while going out of the country for week(s) long vacations.


Always remember that you are a guest in any country you go. Leave your attitude at home, be patient and smile. You don't need to learn a language, but learning a few words will be helpful. Everywhere you go outside of the US will allow you to get by just speaking English. Speak slowly, use few words and talk like a caveman and you can get by with English most anywhere.

Overseas Saving Strategy:

You are not going to be taxed like in the US, so contributing to a 401k may or may not be beneficial. Depends if your company matches or not. Obviously go for the match if they have one as that is free money. If not, then consider your time to FIRE and whether you wanna max out 401k if you are not getting the tax benefits as well as the timing of your FIRE. If you are 40 and want to FIRE before 59 and 1/2, then pumping your 401k without the tax perks is not going to benefit you and could hurt you if you want to withdraw early. Instead, pump money into a standard investment account so that you can access this money when you are 45 or 48 without penalty.

For me, I am not currently putting anything into a 401k. I am taking 75+% of my income and putting it into a low cost set of index funds. The rest, I am taking awesome vacations in Asian countries scoping out what my FIRE life will look like. I don't plan on returning to America. Ever.


You can expect that you will get a similar pay per hour as you may get in the US for the same job. The difference is the guaranteed and required overtime as well as the perks of paid living expenses and reduced or 0 income tax. The days of guys getting massive pay for working in a war zone are generally gone, but we are not entertaining working in a warzone in this post. I have never considered war zone work even though it has been presented to me.

I also like to play with this fire calculator to see where I am and check on my goals and progress:

Discussion Unpopular opinion : its boring


As someone who at this moment has Diablo 2, Diablo 1, POE, Last Epoch, Grim Dawn, Wolcen, Titan Quest, Torchlight 2, Dungeon Siege installed and actively playing - my opinion of Diablo 4 after some 12+ hours is not that great.

I started with Rogue, got to level 10, and honestly could not imagine I would play that class in live game. I started thinking it will resemble Demon Hunter from D3, but it seemed like it was that with all the "pazazz" removed.

So I decided to start fresh with another class. And I chose Druid. This showed much more promise and mechanically was fun to play. Build wise possibility it was heads and tails above the rogue - but still the whole tree felt very limited compared to other modern ARPGs

But let me get into why I think the game is boring. And why honestly I don't see how it will work as MMO of any longevity.

  1. Open world design. So open world is always the same map and not randomly generated. I won't argue with this choice. But in this case the open world should really be stunning with memorable locations. Instead what we got is overworld that looks like it was procedurally generated, has same structure, and is simply bland to the point my eyes got tired and looked for some diversion from gray nothingness and blandness. More over, the zone is not even that big. I would say its size of 4 D2 open world zones side by side. Now remember - this is ACT1 , there will be what 4 acts ? So if this a MMO , you will be looking at this exactly the same zone for 1000 hours.

  2. Dynamic events. That are put in the zones to spice up otherwise dreadful slog, got boring so fast I even seen people simply avoiding them. To make it worse they are always at exactly same place. If player wants they can just stand in same spot and do them over and over ( or even bot ? ). So its 1-3 scenarios happening one after another on the same spot.

3.Mini Dungeons They are always on the same spot on the map. And they are smaaaal. Literally takes you 50 seconds to finish them

4.Dungeons The meet and bones of ARPG and Diablo, are among most linear I have seen among all games mentioned above. They seem to be procedurally generated, but expect just a straight line of O shape. They usually have 1 or two type groups of monsters and take some 10+ minutes to clear. And the worst is that if you want to do them again, you can not simply return and new dungeon will be generated.

  1. Gameplay Mechanically the gameplay was good, and monsters had interesting mechanics. The health potion mechanic was cumbersome , but other than that it was pretty good ( Reminded me of Wolcen ) However the build mechanic is very linear. I wont go to much into this because I am sure other will talk about it.

  2. Staying true to old Diablo games I can see how important is that the game stays thematically the same. But lot of abilities and class mechanic seem same as D2 just remixed into ability tree. Hate to say but D3 was far more innovative and fresh.


All In all, after playing I have serious doubts for how long it will take me to get bored. I was already bored after 10 hours. And this game is supposed to be MMO with thousands of hours.

I think that the biggest offenders are static open world that is really bland and small. And really really disappointing dungeons.

... But of course that is my opinion
