Are there people that were born scumbags?
People that killed a lot of other people. Was that because of a personality they were born with or was it because of their surroundings that they became like that?

I just started grinding cayo 3 days ago and i have made more than my first 15 days of playing this game. Its kind of pointless doing businesses for money when robbing a german drug dealer can make 10x more in the same time, even more if you b2b.

2022.01.26 10:43 st_mantas How I became the Head Copywriter at a $20M+ company without copywriting experience (motivational letter breakdown included)
Prelude Around a year ago, on a Wednesday, I was browsing Facebook at my desk to kill some time until 5 PM. I had been doing that almost daily for the past 3 months.
I was a mid-level web designer at a reputable digital agency in my 4th year. And it was fine.
The pay was fine. The team was fine. The management was fine. The complementary Friday morning doughnuts were fine.
I just didn’t want to be a designer.
I was good at it, sure. As good as one gets by repeatedly doing something daily. “Teach a man to fish,” you know?
But I was sick of fishing. And the worst part—I had no idea what else I wanted to do. I was stuck in a rat race with a finish line I no longer cared for.
So on that faithful brain-numbing Facebook session, my eyes grew 3x when I saw the headline:
“We're looking for a creative copywriter (English)”
Remember when I said I didn’t know what I wanted to do? I did. I had simply let go of that idea as unfeasible.
The idea of writing for money.
I wrote short stories in school. Took a crack at blogging as a teenager. Freelanced as an SEO ghostwriter during university. Wrote social media posts and articles for companies I worked at in positions unrelated to writing…
But it was never serious.
Eventually, I started playing around with design. It instantly brought in more money. I loved writing, but I wasn’t going to sacrifice a comfortable life because of it.
I stopped looking for copywriting opportunities and moved on. Then, the opportunity presented itself.
That Wednesday, I left work early and ran home. I had to write a motivational letter that would sell me all on its own. Because when it came to copywriting experience, my CV was worth fuck all.
How to sell something you don’t have No successful Facebook ads. No landing pages with stunning conversion rates. No newsletters with jaw-dropping open rates.
I had nothing.
On top of that, there were more qualified candidates out there. Ones with shining CVs and recommendations from prestigious advertising agencies.
Not to mention native English speakers.
(If you’ve noticed some confusion with tenses in this post, it’s because I’m not one)
I had a handful of old SEO articles, a couple of design-related blog posts, some ramblings on Medium, and various pieces of copy from my side project.
When your goods aren’t impressive, make an impressive delivery.
Here's the original letter I sent them. Let's break it down.
The job post was for an English copywriter but written in my native tongue. Naturally, one would apply using the same language as the job description, but I decided to write my letter in English. It would make me stand out and prove my credibility in one go.
Next, I hesitated with the tone. Should I make it formal or “as I talk”? Again, I wanted to stand out. Get my foot in the door.
So, instead of the usual
“Dear Sir or Madam”
I wrote a looser
“Hello, person in charge of recruitment at Burga!”I followed it up with a quick explanation for why I’m bugging them
My name is Mantas, and I’m going to try and convince you I’m the best choice for the copywriter job.And why this letter is in English
My mother tongue is Lithuanian, but my brain is English. Since the position will have me prove I can muster up a sentence with native fluency, I figured, “Why not start with this letter?”I could’ve skipped this part, but I wanted to create contrast. A native English speaker that’s fluent in English isn’t impressive. A foreigner that is turns heads.
The following is a sample of my writing style.Notice how I don’t hide that this is simply an example of my writing style. I don’t try to sugar-coat it or twist it into “experience.” There isn’t any. I lean into what I have.
Some blog posts I wrote for the company I currently work at (three of them are ghostwritten):
• The client hates your design. Now what?
• How Can You Improve Your UX with Micro-interactions?
• 5 surefire ways to break your creative block
• Read these 3 books to instantly boost your design game by 10,433%
Some of my early writings on Medium (a bit edgy, but more creative and loose):
• For the love of God, write it down!
• On Broken Phones and Eye-openings
• A (not so) brief overview of branding, Part 1: The ‘You must be fun at parties’
A side project I originally started on Instagram:
• Setup Scout (website)
• Setup Scout (IG account)
Although currently I occupy a UI Designer position in a digital agency, management often turns to me for writing jobs. That gives me a rare opportunity to touch upon both – design and copy.On its own, design seems utterly irrelevant in applying for a copywriting position. The trick is to bridge that gap—show how this experience benefits the company. Provide a unique perspective that no one else has. That’s your ace.
Since Burga is an E-commerce brand, I believe my experience in close knit relationships between the two disciplines would prove most useful.
On top of that, creative thinking is basically my hobby. Before Setup Scout (the side project mentioned earlier) there were a number of other ventures I pursued. Finding connections between seemingly unrelated topics is my Rubik’s cube and crossword puzzles rolled up into one.Creativity is in no way a unique trait in the advertising industry, but you can’t skip it. I love creative thinking/brainstorming/idea generation. But so does the next copywriter. I was lucky to have a real-life example to back my claim. Be sure to have one of your own.

Your style is exactly what we’re looking for!I shit you not.

2022.01.26 10:43 megalyknight It is fine to say that breastfeeding is best for babies
I know it’s a heated topic, but let’s be honest with ourselves, breastmilk is the optimal source of nutrition for babies. Stating that is not an opinion, it’s not an attack, it’s a scientifically proven fact.
I see a lot of people getting wound up because a healthcare professional has told them that breastmilk is healthier for babies than formula, be it a doctor, a midwife, a nurse, a dietician etc… and I don’t think they deserve to be slandered for saying it. It’s like them saying that getting your 5-a-day is best for your health, or 10,000+ steps a day is best for your health. They don’t mean that 3 a day is bad, or that they’re judging you for not getting those extra 2, or that 5000 steps is bad, they’re just presenting you with scientific facts. There are people who can’t breastfeed, there are people who can’t get their 5 a day, people who can’t do 10,000 steps a day, that doesn’t change the facts.

2022.01.26 10:43 Gen_X_ How do I deal with people who tell me how to be a christian?
Hi! My name is Ben, recently I've come into a lot of arguments regarding people telling me how to be a christian when they're not one. Alot of these arguments / debates mostly have to do with people telling me how they're religious and support LGBTQ - and no matter how hard I try to tell them they're wrong it always ends up with dozens of people ganging up on me telling me how I'm just some messed up person, how I'm homophobic, how I "think I'm better than everyone."
I'm sure you all know that being LGBTQ is a sin in God's eyes, and despite that he loves us all unconditionally, but being a christian is about being better, not perfect. Although I don't support LGBTQ, I care for the very same people and tell these people whom I'm arguing with that I don't hate these people and that I respect them as humans. They call me homophobic like it's a title that I'm supposed to wave around, but what I don't get is the fact that if I were 'homophobic' I would have a phobia, which would make it something I couldn't control so they obviously didn't think that through.
But my main concern is how am I supposed to come across to these people who very clearly are ignorant and arrogant to the proper way of being a Christian and they make up or twist things in ways that tell me how God allows gays and how God is gay himself and it just pisses me off.
Does anyone have any advice into this? I'm sure someone's been in my shoes.

2022.01.26 10:43 throwawwwway878787 Sidelined at work, 29 weeks pregnant, should I care?
Just to preface - I am about 29 weeks pregnant, working full-time (from home) and not planning to start my maternity leave until April - as close to my delivery date as possible. I'm in Europe and will probably be taking at least 9-12 months of maternity leave.
Basically my issue is that since my pregnancy announcement (and possibly a bit before that), I feel completely ignored and excluded at work. I know this isn't a new issue for a lot of pregnant women, but I'm still feeling confused and frustrated on how to deal with it - especially as someone who's been quite career-driven over the years.
Just for some additional background on my current work situation, I had been covering a gap for a while on a project - let's call it "Project X" - which the company had been actively recruiting someone to come take over for the last two years. Finally, within the last month or so, that individual has been hired and is doing really well taking over the post. I was glad that this happened originally - I have been fed up with that project and ready to move on to other things. That said, those other things/projects never really materialised and still haven't - and now I don't even have "Project X" to sort of prove any value to the team, not to mention any other major projects to highlight going forward.
My pregnancy has just added another layer to this frustration and I feel like being pregnant really has become an excuse for my boss (and his manager) not to get me involved in any other projects - perhaps in the name of giving me time/space to relax - but it mostly just feels like I'm the odd woman out when it comes to any defined role on the team. There is yet another element to this, which is that the company is undergoing a period of restructuring over the next year - which means that redundancies are possible, if not highly likely, and it seems to me I'm just being set up to be the obvious cast-out if/when that time comes. It's not my dream job, and I know there aren't any guarantees, but I'd still like to feel somewhat reassured there might be a role to come back to that I can rely on.
So I guess I'm just looking for advice on dealing with this scenario, or whether I should care as much as I do? I feel like I should be fully focused on this major life change that's coming and the excitement of having a new baby rather than where I fit in now at a workplace I'm not that thrilled about to begin with. It actually feels terrible that work (and my lack of it now) is the first thing that crosses my mind when I wake up, as opposed to getting ready for what will be an obviously challenging but completely life-changing experience - which I want to look forward to as much as possible.
TL:DR Work side-lining me at 29 weeks pregnant, restructure coming, any suggestions on where to focus?

Lorton is supposed to get 2-4 inches of snow plus high winds Friday into Saturday morning. Does anyone have experience with what happens with the schedule in a snowstorm? I don't really fancy a 3-4hr or more delay on the Saturday departure.( I can still cancel and drive if needed since I live further south than Lorton and can drive out of the snow a little faster) All you from the northern climes, 2-4 inches in the South is problematical since we don't have plows and salt in the quantities y'all stock.
