Crazy News Stories

Looking at the picture, the problem with partner vs boyfriend/girlfriend is that it really suggests something more ongoing and long term whereas bf or gf is not necessarily so haha

Here’s Batfighter - the original fisherfighter:

Bruh we have to account Batman and Robin for shark abuse. Forget the declining mental health of criminals and the increase in crime, this is a problem of a global scale.


#327

that’s exactly why i always have a can of ocean repellent spray on me

Sharks do explode! I knew it!


#328

This is insane, a week has gone by, and still no one has talked. No one has leaked anything at all. Who would’ve thought that a Twitch ban would be kept more secret than stuff happening at the White House, even national-security-related stuff?

The world is so weird right now.

There’s some rumors out there, some nasty, some plain dumb, some already debunked, but nothing confirmed still.

You’d think some “anonymous source” would just “leak” it, but no, nothing at all so far.


#329

I’m guessing it’s simply that no one actually knows, neither particular reason or who really did it. Twitch is such a huge ego driven mess completely void of consistency, reason and accountability.


#330

no, some ppl do know

there’s a journalist who always has inside information about Twitch-going-ons, and he’s the one who immediately said that it’s a permaban (something Twitch doesn’t even confirm nor deny), and he also confirmed he knows why but that he doesn’t feel comfortable releasing that information (all he said it’s rly serious).

There’s also another streamer who tweeted she knows why and that it’s very bad and that he’s finished not just on Twitch. She later deleted that tweet. I imagine for legal reasons.

His sponsors have dropped him. (which means they know why and it is indeed very bad, cuz otherwise they’d just follow him to youtube or facebook or whatever, but perhaps that indeed won’t be an option anymore)

Giphy is deleting all his giphs. (which is rly very weird)

People do know, but i guess the legal repercussions of talking at this moment would be too big, but that still doesn’t explain why someone doesnt just leak it anonymously.

Twitch has also been asked repeatedly by many news outlets, but they refuse to give any details, and ofc Twitch know, so some ppl at Twitch know.

He himself also must know for sure, but ofc he’s not going to publish it himself if it’s rly bad.

If he didn’t know and had no idea, he’d be raging up a storm, talking to the press, and calling for a boycott or whatever.

(for example, there’s a bunch of streamers that have been permabanned also last week or the week before, and it was immediately confirmed that that was due to sexual-predator-related stuff. Though Twitch also did not confirm nor deny that, it immediately came out.)


#331

I mean we have a pretty harsh environment of cancel culture raging on at the moment. Anyone landing on the wrong side of the rabid mob whether they have a point or not are getting purged right now, which would help explain the sponsor drops and other platforms blindly following suit.

But yeah no there’s probably something going on here, though the largest indicator of that is his silence on the subject. Twitch is still a zoo ran by the monkeys though, and not even the smarter varieties at that.


#332

I was going to say Can you believe the stupidity??..But giving that it’s 2020, I am SURE someone will post something ever stupider :crazy_face:


#333

It’s a payout not enough to cover the hospital bill or the funeral, so I will pass, thanks.


#334

It’s Alabama… i hate to say it, but yes, very much so.


#335

oh, so it’s basically more like family reunions then


#336


Because using a platform with a dominant child audience to spread your political goals will TOTALLY pan out, right?

The hell is going on now? I’ve seen the page when the price was lower during a discovery queue, and yep, it’s doubled now.

image

Some people claim that even on Epic the price has been increased in their region. For the moment, it’s at 95 BRL for me. Is it Epic doing their thing or is it just Sony? Who knows.

People are obviously raging at the steam discussions because of this act…

Well, I didn’t have any interest in the game, but for those who had from the affected regions, it’s a groin punch for sure.


#338

hm, I didn’t even know it was being sold on EGS so i never checked the price there before. As of now, it stands at $22.99 for me, so if that price were to remain stable, I might buy it there when it releases for $12.99 with that $10 coupon they gave me. (can’t use it on pre-purchases, which i would do here just in case they raise the price later)

It's 2020 - Time to Hype New Releases or something
#339

not sure this is news-worthy, but it’s certainly dumb and crazy

I can only guess his goal is to siphon black voters from Biden in order to help Trump.


#340

I mean we are talking about Kanye West here. If it were any other personality like The Rock, yeah it’d be crazy to think of, but Trump and Reagan (I think) were entertainment personalities before becoming seriously involved in politics, so you never know.


#341

@M00 Yea, Reagan an actor, so maybe, but um… Not feeling it, unless he has political background no one has ever mentioned in a big way before.


#342

:joy:


#343

All the commentators could say was “That cannot be right.” again and again…
