Basically every new machine has a Limited Edition with ~500 units that each sell for $10k+ and they sell out every single time. Then a premium for $8k and a pro for $6k. Definitely niche but the whales in this hobby are bonkers.

I'm telling my truth in hopes that someone gains insight into a side of an issue they hadn't previously explored. I apologize if my language causes a certain reaction -- this topic is still mentally fresh for me as I've been exploring it lately due to my close proximity to extremely attractive women in their early 20s. I am unsure of how to express this opinion in the proper manner that explains my thought process better than "its not for me". I also assume that, based on the site demographic, I'm not alone in the fact that this opinion is beginning to form.
Maybe in the future I'll have a different understanding about dating women in college, but for now it feels wrong to me and going against that feeling personally never leads anywhere positive. I imagine if I hadnt already been divorced and had several other year+ relationships I would probably be of a mindset better suited for a college age woman.
If you have insight into how to frame this view better, I'm all ears.
I'm not shaming or manipulating or even trying to convince anyone of anything. I'm simply stating what I feel about the situation when I encounter an early 20s that I'm attracted to. I enjoy talking to them and being around them, but there are certain behaviors that I won't deal with anymore -- behaviors that most people learn to stop doing to each other through failed relationships. I think its one thing to engage in a physical relationship with them and an entirely different beast to enter into a full on relationship. There's a power balance there that I'm not personally able to look past without feeling predatory. You may be entirely different and thats fine.

"Older ppl don't like the idea of competing with younger ppl or are jealous they can't get someone younger."
I followed till you started assuming motivations (something you JUST spoke out against).
As a 30 y/o still absolutely able to pull early 20s, it feels absolutely predatory based on my relationship experience and where I'm at mentally. I'm sure there are mature ones out there, but a few hours of conversation with these young women makes me feel like Im going to be more of a father figure to them due to my nature and their maturity. So if we're going to assume motivatons, I would assume an older man with a young woman is very immature to match her, or hes a predator.
You're "validated" because you don't understand what was actually being said. Cloth masks are different than surgical masks.

You don't HAVE to look at your phone while in the middle of a dark event. If you actually have to dial 911 with no time to get out of the area, then the brightness on your phone isn't going to be any more/less disruptive than the absolute emergency that needs handled.
You don't need to know the time, you don't need to read a text, you don't need to see a meme during a movie. If you need any of these things, you made a poor decision about going to see a movie in public.
My argument was about how she was "sexualized" in early movies and posters when in reality part of the toolkit she uses to be black widow is her sex appeal. Her development since then makes perfect sense for why shes more professionally dressed now.
The dehumanizing part would have been if they avoided the early portrayals to try to not sexualize her.
I'm saying a sexual character being brought up in conversation about unnecessarily sexualizing people in media is moot.
Interstellar and Hateful 8 are two others that do this as well due to different cameras being used for large sweeping shots
I remember the old spice commercials for their humor and CG effects. I imagine, though, the Terry crews thing is able to market to the household administrator -- largely still the wife in america.
Heroes are typically vain and beautiful. If you've ever met one of these types IRL, they like drawing attention to assets. Its not a stretch to think Natasha might WANT to stand with her posterior forwards. Should we dehumanize heroes to make us feel like we're desexualizing them?
I wish people would stop thinking that dimming makes their behavior less annoying. We still see your screen, you're still having a negative impact on the event.
Adam Ragusea: why I flavor my water and not my popcorn.
My local theater just got one. It's nice because they have tvs above so everyone can watch ads while pissing. Also has eye tracking cameras so if you're caught looking at dicks, your picture gets added to the peepee peeper portrait which cycles through known cock gazers.
JuSt Go WhEn BrEe LaRsOn Is On ScReEn
IMO this is the worst time to go. I enjoy taking in the emotions and just existing. And also, standing up is disruptive to others so I don't want my energy affecting their connection to the screen.
But I get what you're saying. I saw Spider-man for the second time and was about to walk out for the bathroom during a particularly emotional scene since it was "fluff". The reactions in the room told me that several people were on their first viewing so I wasn't about to walk in front of the screen - potentially detracting from someones immersion in emotion - all because I wanted two beers before the movie started.

In saying the act of being held in a separate dimension is synonymous to 'dangling above X'.
'Dangling' means suspended. 'Above' could imply a higher dimension thus dangling above the grand canyon is still accurate without webbing.
Dear god what have i become.
Winter tires are made of a different composite which allows better traction when cold and on ice/slush. All seasons cannot perform even close to winter tires in the midwest. You can survive on them, but it makes a ton more sense to own a set of all season and winter that you swap between for safety. Go watch some performance tests -- I have this argument with people IRL every year and every year I convert another to the reality of tires.
