    • OP. The vast majority of sunnis won't go to hell just because they revere certain personalities out of ignorance. However, the ones who have seen and understood the proofs and still choose to reject them are another story entirely. Half my family is sunni. They neither know nor care too much about history. For them, Islam is basic - prayers, ,fasting, hajj, zakat etc. Most of them are not sectarian. I believe most sunnis are like that, and they are not necessarily hell-bound. However, there are a few sectarian nasibis in my family. I only tolerate them as long as I have to, but I wouldn't cross my fingers for them.
    • As someone who worked in the gaming industry for over a decade: if anything, I think we are on the precipice of a boom. Yes, the quality of games hasn’t been good as of late. But the tools that are coming out now and in the near future will cut the cost, development time, and talent needed to create character models, vehicles, code, maps, levels, stories, voice overs, music, etc.  That means that you will no longer need giant studios with multimillion dollar budgets to create triple A games. Yes, that will result in some oversaturation in the market. But it also means that the focus of game developers will be more on coming up with the best concepts, ideas, and gameplay formulas, rather than just the grunt work.
    • Cars are a necessity in almost every US city except New York and a couple of others. However, I have got to agree with Haji here - there is no justification going for a loan on an "asset" that loses most of it's value in the first five to seven years. There should be plenty of used cars that can pass inspection. I myself have an early 2000's Honda with north of 350k miles. It simply wont die, and it cruises at 80 mph all day long. The AC is still ice cold, and it still gives me ~30 mpg. It's in Pakistan btw. The US has so many options its not even funny, courtesy of extremely cheap credit over the last few decades. People really underestimate the value they can get out of a used car. They just have to know where to look.
    • I don't think you understand the US transportation system.  Not having a car is even more poverty inducing.  
    • I used to buy candy after the holiday, but the world caught on and stores stopped the steep reduction.  I used to buy coats and other durable clothing at thrift shops but thrift shops became fashionable and now their prices are high.   I used to shop the discount bread shelf at Walmart.  Lately their discounted prices are more than I pay for fresh bread.   Enjoy it while you can,  I guess.
