Damn, really shitty news. Aside from Milo's birth, it seems like the Allies are having as bad a year as my family. :/

My...my heart is breaking right now. I knew something was up but didn't realize it was his brother. Cancer is one hell of monster and it's taken too many people away from us, and especially the Allies this year. I'm hoping he takes all the time he needs. I can't imagine someone as jolly as Huber who wears his heart on his sleeves is going through right now. May he rest in peace.

Oh man just saw the news. Condolences to Huber and his family. Such awful news and could not imagine what he is going through.

Stay strong brother and know you have people to lean on the world over!

On a brighter note, the final Achieve It Yourself today was delightful. Really hope that series makes a comeback in the future.

I have to be honest, while I get the appeal of shows like achieve it yourself and fancy fifteen...

I really miss the And For That Reason format. Or at least trying to get a new patreon exclusive show that isn't gameplay.

I'm not saying they shouldn't be doing these shows. But to be honest, I really hope the next patreon exclusive is something similar to AFTR.

Im a broke college student in nyc but I just had to put in a couple dollars to the gofundme huber posted.

Ive seen tons of gofundme’s for medical stuff but seeing one from someone like huber hits home. Our country is sucha mess that people pass away/try to stay alive just has potential to put you in scary amounts of debt is fucked.

Yeah that's crazy to me. I just read the page, his borhter was a lawyer. I don't understand how money would be a big issue. This kind of stuff is so much different here in EU, life insurances and all that would easily cover these costs

It blows my mind that people in the richest country in the world need to create Gofundmes to cover medical expenses. I don't know if my American friends understand how crazy this is from a European perspective. You guys really need some changes.

My thoughts go to Huber's family. I'm sure his brother was awesome like him.

Might wanna read the actual gofundme page. It's not about medical expenses, it's about the burial and things that follow.
This isn't any different from the EU.

My aunt recently passed away. She was cremated and got a small plate on top of her grave with a small engraving. Just that including the burial ceremony costed like 5000€.
Burials can be pretty expensive and there's usually some other things along to settle.

You are right, it does say it's for the burial. But the goal is 20k, which made me think it must be for more things than that.

They just lost one of their incomes. I am sure there are a lot of other things that they need to cover next to the actual burial.
I also don't have a clue how much those are in LA, but my guess is that those are a "rip-off" in most of the world (which I absolutely detest, preying upon people who just lost someone should be forbidden by law).

I did give a bit to the gofundme even though I usually don't do that as I can miss it and I want to help Hubers family in all of this.

Seeing someone you love so much go away so early is absolutely devastating. I hope Huber can pass the good things his brother passed unto him, back into the world.

Greg probably brought in most of the income for his family, and likely had very expensive medical bills in his fight with cancer. $20,000 to cover the burial, paying off the remaining medical expenses, and probably money to relocate the family somewhere cheaper is likely low balling.

I just buried a grandfather who was basically a second dad to me last Friday. Everything required for the most basic service and burial added up to $9000+. Luckily, he already had a plot purchased, so that wasn't an additional $1500+ that had to come out of pocket. Another good thing was that they had been on a payment plan for a few years already and had already put in about $4000 worth of payments. We still had to come up with about $5000 within a week though.

Man that pic of his brothers' 4 kids on the playground is the cutest. Makes me sad to know that they won't have their father growing up.

My condolences.

It has always been insane to me how much it costs to bury/cremate someone.
That stuff can be crazy for people who don't have lot of money to begin with (and I believe it's even mandatory, so it should be so expensive imo).

I'm late with watching it, but if the answer is still of interest: Damiani appears around 1:19:55 in the YouTube upload for a brief but impactful cameo.
Thank you very much!
It is still of interest and I have not been able to watch the whole thing myself so have yet to see it. Very grateful for the timestamp. Thanks!

Nah, Borderlands 3 will score well
Man EA's E3 2018 was a total bust, let's hope they can do better in the future, starting with Fallen Order, hopefully

Honest question, is it a bit that every single time Kyle references Pokemon he gets his facts wrong?

"Do you know how many times I missed a Thunderbolt, dude?"

(That move has 100% accuracy)

Knowing Kyle, it might be.
I am sure he knows that move is 100% accuracy.

My guess is he just wants the reactions/comments (or to check if anyone would notice).

Kyle's just a dude who likes Pokemon, not an expert. I don't think him getting random stuff wrong is a bit, he just confused Thunderbolt and Thunder.

Yep. The other Allies refer to him as their Pokémon expert because he's the one of the group who knows the most about Pokémon, but if you know a lot about Pokémon yourself, you notice him getting stuff wrong all the time. It sometimes made Brandon and his Pokémon shows a bit frustrating to listen to, but y'know, they're trying their best and that's all we can ask of them.

Meanwhile you have someone like Steven Crowder out there recording "Change my Mind" episodes about America being superior to other countries. Wat.

I remember standing in line at PSX 2017 with Huber talking to him about depression and other such topics (what a fun convo to have with an Ally 😅) and he told me about his brother and how it was impacting him emotionally. I really wish this day hadn't come and I can't imagine what he is going though.

Ackshually,

If we’re talking about Gen 1, any move can miss. Even if it has “100% Accuracy” it has a 1 in 256 chance of missing due to a bug in the game. The only move that gets around this is Swift because it just skips the accuracy check entirely.

So, it is perfectly possible to miss Thunderbolt loads of times, especially if you played the game a lot.

Thanks. I'm alright now, was a bit of a shock since she kept her illness from everyone, apart from her husband/children.

Luckily, he already had a plot purchased, so that wasn't an additional $1500+ that had to come out of pocket.

Just watched the sleazy update about the fantasy league, I actually think the complete opposite of kyle as in if you pick up a game that doesn't release you are barred from picking up that film the following season. I think it adds more strategy to pick ups if there is a repercussion. Also there needs to be points for counter picking something that doesn't release.
