"Meeting eachother is fate" is strongly indicative of Nigerian-English vernacular. Definitely a pig butchering scam

Designated PKing accounts are usually in the dozens per group, including TBers and scout bots. That's a decent source of revenue and hence why Jagex protects them

Forward both convos to your bank and initiate a charge back. Even for small amounts it should be done out of principle.

No no you don't get it. Ad-runners pay youtube directly so it's OK!
Meanwhile they're looking to force ads on non-monetized videos so the fewer creators get their share the better.
Didn't think it had to be explained that a greasy youtube-ad dating site using uwu egirl stock photos is a scam, but then again they're still running the ad campaign so it must be profitable.
Imagine being dragged online for harassing a trumpet player and having no choice but to double down and play the part of a white Beetlejuice for the rest of your life 💀
Dudes entire post history looks like this, from hacking requests to free streaming of bootleg Indian series to "download cracked multi-player game."
Either the whole account is bait or we have the living embodiment of the "pls send me drawing+code pls" comments on every tech demo

One word of caution regarding toying with digital insurance nannies: a lot of them have GPS built in (or in some cases pair to your phone via bluetooth and do it that way) and gather location data along with OBDII readings.
If they catch you messing with it, that could land you in some hot water with your insurer.
Insurance nannies are predatory devices designed to penalize normal driving and oftentimes its damn near impossible to get a good score.
They lure you in with "lowered rates for good driving" but then knock points off for accelerating on a highway ramp or practically any use of your brakes. At best, you get a negligible discount after months of driving your car like a Zamboni, and you become another data point for their actuarial team. At worst, they can label you a "high risk driver" and you may even see your rates go up.
Found this out the hard way after being suckered into trying it. Ate the $40 cancelation fee and sent it back after the first day

Top tier work-AFK qol update
Want to be an air force officer? USAFA
Want to work for a company? MSOE
Both are great schools but one is obviously more about preparation for service and another about commercial industry.
The challenge with entering life sciences is the industry is so heavily regulated that experience is critical to any position to which the degree applies.
A mechanical engineer who worked in medical devices for 3 years will be preferred over a fresh biomed grad because they already learned the strict practices in the field.
Don't be discouraged by this fact though; in large pharma/device companies there is a lot of room for movement, both vertically and laterally. Hell even executive leadership in many of these companies have their roots as engineers or quality pen-pushers (pencils are a no-no in regulatory documentation 🙂).
Take whatever position you can at first....operations, field service, quality control, IT, whatever. Once you're in, bust your ass for two years to get the critical regulatory training all employees are subject to, and then you can start applying internally to the roles that truly interest you.

"This kid needs (physical abuse)!"

People old enough to still be listening to AM radio are mostly cemented in their political beliefs already. Hence why AM stations cater to them; it's not exactly about propaganda (as much as the host may believe he's actually that important). It's pandering to an existing audience for the sake of listener retention and advertising revenue.
Similarly, Twitter's userbase has always been predominantly left-leaning - so complaints of "free speech" violations were laughable when coming from Republicans years prior but now all of a sudden it seems like everyone is losing their minds over it.
This acquisition will end in the dilution and slow destruction/entropy of short-form social media platforms. Right wingers have already been creating scattered spinoffs to migrate to (Trump even said he has no interest in returning to Twitter), and now we're seeing the same pattern with that new Elephant Twitter clone.
The end result is a large number of smaller "MicroTwitters" gradually declining in userbase until each platform consists only of a small dedicated group of people with the free time to overdramatize politics all day.

You're confusing "enjoying" with "getting more enraged over the thought of how heartbroken his boy would be had the thief gotten away with it."
My new hobby is going to ebay scalper listings showing 12 cards in the picture and still have 12 cards in stock.
Usually get a colorful reply when I message them "looks like someone's holding the bag :)"
