Bastard Out of Carolina- How is the "American Dream" presented?

2022.01.19 14:30 N0L0NGERHUMAN_ Bastard Out of Carolina- How is the "American Dream" presented?

Can somebody help me define how the "American dream" is portrayed in Bastard out of Carolina?
Set in the 1950s, the story revolves around Bone, the child of a young, uneducated, poor waitress called Anney. At fifteen years of age, Anney, a child herself, is burdened with the responsibility of legitimizing Bone and giving her the best in life. By having a birth certificate bearing the words ‘illegitimate’, Bone is automatically relegated to the underprivileged class, well-known as ‘white trash’ in this context. The American dream in the 50s was near materialism. The possession of consumer goods was thought to bring joy to a household's life and give worth to you as a person.
How does the American dream manifest in the book? I am having difficulty defining it/articulating it coherently?

2022.01.19 14:30 LousyLife [USA-TX] [H] Full PC with 3060 Ti LHR, 3080 FE [W] Local Cash

Hi everyone,
Some details first:
Local is Houston/The Woodlands
Timestamps: Full PC | 3080 FE
Asking Price: PC - $1,000 | FE - $1,500?

First item is a prebuilt with the following parts:
Was bought February of last year from Newegg. I replaced the GPU, original was an Asus 3070 TUF and now has an LHR 3060 Ti FTW3 which was bought brand new middle of last year (I'll provide the box for this). Storage was replaced too to a 500 GB nvme cause I needed to keep my stuff on the original storage.
This was used as my work and gaming PC until I was able to build my own system late last year. Was going to sell to my brother but he got a macbook for Christmas and sadly would rather keep that than this. Anyway, asking $1,000 for it. Would really prefer to sell the entire thing, but if you want to part out pieces, PM me with what you think it's worth.

Second item, another sad story, is a 3080 FE from a prebuilt NZXT system bought on black friday last year. It is my wife's machine, used mainly for light gaming (sims, sim city, all types of sims game) and design/editing stuff. Got to talking about GPUs and stuff and wife found out how much the card is worth, and now we're selling so she can buy a macbook. lol
Asking $1,500 OBO for this one as I would like to get as much as I can for it for the above reason.

As always, local only please as I do not wish to have to mail out a full PC or a 3080 FE without a box. Please comment and PM for questions. Thanks!

2022.01.19 14:30 pet_wolverine Kingmaker - How important is late-game kingdom management?

I believe I'm getting into the late game of Kingmaker--I just started the chapter where I got invited to the Pitax festival. My question is, how important is kingdom management at this point? I tend to be something of a perfectionist, and I get disappointed to see events pop up where my people have like a 35% chance of success, or rank-up/claim options where I just don't seem to have the days available to tend to. Then I asked myself, how important is this stuff, really? I know that if my kingdom fails, I lose the game. Well, that's not gonna happen. Almost all my stats are rank V-VII, except the ones I added recently, like arcane and espionage, which are still in like the I-III range. My kingdom stability is serene. I get a decent income of like 85 BPs per week, and I always supplement that with purchased BPs since I don't really have much else I need to spend my gold on.
I'll keep working to manage my kingdom as well as I can, and I do take some special things along the way like getting all my party members bonus attack, damage and defense when fighting within my kingdom--that in turn makes it more beneficial to continue to expand the boundaries of my kingdom of course. But apart from things like that, is there a particular need for me to be as careful as possible, or can I just shrug it off if two or three problems in a row end in disaster with a big minus to scores that are in the 200 range?

Maybe 5 cars raced at a time and you could race with them or just grapple your car to one of the others and have them tow you around and it's hilarious

2022.01.19 14:30 kimbonz The copium.

Never ever have i seen a sub that wishes a games doom more than this.
At this point its the FF fanbase thats breathing unhealthy amounts of copium. The realisation and wishes that their game never will be bigger than a game thats been missmanaged for years and years are slowly creeping up on them.
Majority of Wow’s fanbase might have quit, but i bet my left n*t that a big percent of them are out there just waiting for a sign of improvement.
And now we actually got some news. God or bad - we dont know yet, only time will tell, But holy fu*k has this sub been working overtime since then to diminish the possibility of good news.

Hey, folks. If you haven't signed this petition yet, can you please take a moment and sign it? The music in Season 5 and Season 6 was awesome and it probably won't be released unless we make it happen!
