Splatoon 2 is My Third Nintendo Switch Game

With “Splatoon 2,” Nintendo doesn’t rewrite the formula. It doubles down on the core experience and expands the ways to play. The developer continues to give fans a curated experience, rotating stages every few hours. In Ranked Battle, players can participate in contests with other rule sets, such as splat zones, tower control and rainmaker.

For dedicated competitors and their teams, there’s even a League Battle, which requires friends and a commitment to a 2-hour session.

You read it here. I'm just looking for playability and fun factor especially since skipping the massively successful game OverWatch. I needed something more portable and I'm hoping this is it. I also have never played Splatoon 1 or the beta for 2. Should be fun!

How is 22,000 in Three Months a Failure

Tesla plunged as much as 6.1 percent Wednesday to $331, the steepest intraday decline since May 4. After the market closed on Monday, the company reported more than 22,000 vehicle deliveries in the second quarter, down from 25,051 in the first three months of the year.

How and when is delivering 22,000 vehicles considered a failure? Wall Street is incredulous!

An Insight to Apple's Spaceship

We go upstairs, and I take in the view. From planes descending to SFO, and even from drones that buzz the building from a hundred feet above it, the Ring looks like an ominous icon, an expression of corporate power, and a what-the-fuck oddity among the malls, highways, and more mundane office parks of suburban Silicon Valley. But peering out the windows and onto the vast hilly expanse of the courtyard, all of that peels away. It feels … peaceful, even amid the clatter and rumble of construction. It turns out that when you turn a skyscraper on its side, all of its bullying power dissipates into a humble serenity.

For the next two hours, Ive and Whisenhunt walk me through other parts of the building and the grounds. They describe the level of attention devoted to every detail, the willingness to search the earth for the right materials, and the obstacles overcome to achieve perfection, all of which would make sense for an actual Apple consumer product, where production expenses could be amortized over millions of units. But the Ring is a 2.8-million-square-foot one-off, eight years in the making and with a customer base of 12,000. How can anyone justify this spectacular effort?

I'd love a tour of this architectural marvel. Anyone?

Marry Me, Fly Free

If some guy is limiting you, if he doesn’t help you get to where you need to go, then he’s not the one for you. He’s not part of your flight plan.”

An amazing article on the dating life of a flight attendant written by a friend, Megan Kojima. In some ways, this mimics single pilots as well. Fortunately, I went into this profession already attached and the time we spend apart is just as precious as the time we are together. When you get use to it, there's nothing like it.

Honda's Civic Type-R Set New Record

So now that it's a hit, there goes the mark ups! I'd love to have this car, maybe as a fifth car, but a daily drive up and down the 5/405 might be a little rough on the left knee in traffic. #oldage

But onto the news, it beats its predecessor by almost 7 seconds and the previous champion, the Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport, by a stunning 5.4 seconds!

The Flight Was Not Oversold

It turns out that the contract has a specific rule regarding “Refusal of Transport” (Rule 21), which lays out the conditions under which a passenger can be removed and refused transport on the aircraft. This includes situations where passengers act in a “disorderly, offensive, abusive, or violent” manner, refuse to comply with the smoking policy, are barefoot or “not properly clothed,” as well as many other situations.

There is absolutely no provision for deplaning a seated passenger because the flight is oversold.

An added complication here is that the flight wasn’t even oversold. The contract defines an oversold flight as “a flight where there are more Passengers holding valid confirmed Tickets that check-in for the flight within the prescribed check-in time than there are available seats.”

In this case, the airline attempted to remove seated passengers to make room for airline staff requiring transport to another airport, not because it had sold more tickets than there were seats available.

It's not looking good for United and the operator of the flight, but if he wins, blue skies for Dr. David Dao. (Pun intended)

My opinion: He was mistreated by all counts. Period. At the same time, listening to authority is what I would have done only because I wouldn't have know my rights in the difference of boarding and oversold.

Final Fantasy VII Player Reaches Level 99 in First Reactor

It took roughly 500 hours, by CirclMastr’s count, to pull off this ridiculous accomplishment. He’s been plugging away at his quest for over two years, grinding experience by fighting thousands of low-level random encounters on the catwalks of Midgar’s Sector 1 reactor. “Tedious” might not be a strong enough word, especially considering that he played the game on a PS1, without the benefit of frame-skipping or save states. He streamed some of the run on his Twitch channel, but most of it was solo.

The video is around 56 minutes, but if you'd like, fast forward to where the magic happens around the 53rd minute. It's truly ridiculous and mind numbing blowing.
