Vote4Good ( is a set of games from the Sparo Foundation to promote the intersection of democracy and philanthropy. Simply make a small donation and predict the winner of the New York City Mayoral election of the Governor races in Virginia and New Jersey.
The randomly selected player who chooses selected the winning candidate will have the jackpot donated to the charity they selected. There is already at least $3,300 in the pot for each race. A donation as small as $10 has the chance to grow into thousands for your favorite charity.
1) 10% of each donation goes to the charity the player selects. 90% goes into the pot for the inning charity. Sparo Foundation does not retain any of the donations for operating or other expenses. This is an exploration of a concept we hope to grow in the future to empower voters to democratize philanthropy.
2) There are more than around 8,000 charities to select. These are those rated 3 or 4 stars from Charity Navigator. We are working to add the more than 1.2 million charities in the US and tens of thousands more around the globe.

2021.10.18 16:57 magictheblathering "Smarty Pants"

A few days ago, u/believe-in-boggy submitted an idea for a cold open involving a hot plate of microwave lasagna.
It was a hilarious idea, so I started writing a whole episode.
This isn't finished (and probably won't be), but, here's "Smarty Pants:"

MICHAEL is walking from the microwave with a family size tray of Stouffer’s Lasagna, heading toward his office. His mannerisms suggest that the tray is very hot.
(Passing by the camera at speed)

Michael runs back toward the kitchen, still holding the tray.
Forgot my fork! GAH! This is too hot! Why don’t they warn you? Hot-hot-hot-hot-hot...

Michael, why don’t you put down the lasagna?
No time, Pammy-zyan cheese. I have to put together something called a slide deck for David Wallace. Oh! Parmesan cheese! I–
Michael shuffles back toward the kitchen, and the other workers are starting to pay attention to the spectacle. DWIGHT half stands from his desk, looking anxiously.
I can bring you the can of powdered cheese, Michael.
Michael looks angrily into the camera.
You do not have the hand-u-lar fortitude to multitask like I do.

KEVIN is munching on a loaf of bread wrapped in foil.
Oh wow, this is good garlic bread.

Kevin! Where did you get that?
The toaster oven. I– you made so much, I thought I could –
Dwight crosses the room to get the garlic bread from Kevin, snatching it from his hands
Dwight scoffs
Like you need the carbs!
Michael, it looks like you could use a glass of milk. Did you want me to grab some from the fri–
You’re right Jim. And yes, you can get me a glass of milk. Thank you. Finally someone who is willing to pitch in around–
Dwight appears behind Michael, loaf of still-steaming garlic bread in hand.
Who brought you your garl–
Michael drops the tray of lasagna on to the floor, the whole dispensation of pasta streaking red down the front of his slacks.
And that was the moment that the Smarty Pants brand manilla khaki corporation was born.

Michael has stapled dozens of manilla folders into a crude garment that almost resembles armored trousers. KELLY, RYAN, Pam, and Jim sit at the table while he models the pants. DWIGHT is acting as emcee, though no one has asked him to do so.
He lunges in one direction, the pants are, more or less staying in tact, but Michael winces at times.
They look pretty good, right? What do we think? Ryan?
Ryan just looks at the camera, defeated. Dwight notices Michael wincing.
I told you I have a pair of khaki colored slacks in the car. They’ll fit, Michael.
They’re too big. And they itch. And the rope belt just isn’t in this season. And they’re burlap, Dwight. Besides, how many times do I have to tell you, this is proof of concept!
And what is it you’re proving?
The concept, smarty-pants. Ooh! That’s a good name. This is an innovation!
Michael surveys the room, but no one says anything. Not even Dwight.
Is nobody going to say it?
A beat.
Another beat.
Michael, you look ridiculous.
Michael is taken aback, his feelings are hurt.
You just don’t have the body to make this look work!
Fine! I concede that, not everyone can have Ryan’s beautiful, hairless swimmer’s calves. But what about the concept?
Oh I love the concept.
What do you mean do I “really like the idea?” Yes! Smarty-Pants are just really environmentally conscious. They’re what we in the influencer community call sustainable. But no, Michael is not the right brand ambassador.
Michael is walking in his manila pants in a manner consistent with cowboy chaps. He receives DAVID WALLACE with a handshake.
Well how-dee, pardnuh! What brings you to our little patch of homestead?
David Wallace places his hands on his hips, looking around the room for any kind of clue as to what is going on with Michael’s pants.
I’m here to go over your budget slide deck, and talk to you about some of our updated commissions.
David Wallace can’t take it any longer, he hasn’t moved, even as Michale has motioned multiple times to head toward the conference room.
He sighs
What is this?
The conference room is dark but for the light of the projector. Michael is standing proudly in front of the screen, as Kelly clicks through slides of attractive men dressed in photoshopped manilla-folder-khakis.
...And with the right influencers, gift bags at high profile events, a two page spread in Men’s Health, we could really take off.
A beat
This could be the biggest year Dunder Mifflin has ever had.
So, am I to understand that you don’t have a budget presentation?
Oh, that’s easy. I think we’re talking about two or two point five million. Unless we can get Kanye. Then three million.
I just love that we can hook up our computers directly and –
To answer your original question, vis-a-vis budget presentation. In a word: not exactly.
David Wallace throw his hands up in exasperation. He stands up and turns on the conference room light.
Okay. Kelly, I thank you for whatever this was.
Should I call you or...
We’ll let you know.
Kelly frustratedly exits.
Michael, I’m beginning to wonder whether maybe you have some problems with focus?
(Michael squints at the projector.)
No, David. I thought the same thing, but that is actually his brother Liam Hemsworth, who is basically a blurry version of the hotter one.
A beat.
But we can’t get Chris.
Michael, enough about the pants. We’re not doing the pants. What even? How could you think this was about pants? We don’t produce our own products.
If this company is not planning to reward innovation, then I might have to take my talents to Miami.
(Michael looks directly into the camera)
(To David Wallace)
And thusly, I must ask you the most important question of my career:
A beat.
Would licensing this to Staples be in violation of my non compete? My non-compete agreement? I will cut you in.
(Pinching the bridge of his nose)
Michael, look. The first thing I want you to do is to see a doctor about you having attention deficit disorder–
Michael scoffs in offense
– Michael it’s okay. That’s not an insult, in fact, Rachel told me to get evaluated recently and I did, and the medication has done wonders for my ability to work and focus. But you need to do this. I need you to see your doctor about it, and I need a doctor’s note from you no later than the end of this month.
A beat
And secondly, and I cannot believe I need to tell you this, but it would violate your non-compete. You are not to contract with Staples for any reason. No matter how far-fetched it may seem.
Well I will not sit here and defend my deficit, David. You have wounded me today, and I have to ask you to leave.
Michael. I’m still going to need that budget presentation. Just email it to me. No later than Friday. And see a doctor, I can help you find a specialist that is in-network.
DWIGHT and NATE are unloading reams of paper from their boxes and breaking the boxes down into flat sheets of cardboard. WAREHOUSE WORKERS are angrily trying to get them to stop, but Dwight insists that he outranks them.
(Standing in front of a pallet being loaded up with her arms crossed)
You can’t give us orders. Just take the boxes you’ve ruined and get out of here.
If it isn't women's suffrage it's insubordination. These progressive women today think that because they have broad shoulders they can be defiant. A strong woman tends to the livestock. Remember that! And heed my warning: Michael – your boss, and Daryl – also your boss – will hear about this.
Madge rolls her eyes, but remains in place.
My uncle Aloysius had pretty bad hearing. He couldn’t afford a hearing aid so we had to talk to him through a funnel.
Come on Nate! We have work to do!
There are piles of flattened cardboard boxes in on the floor, displacing many of the chairs and the table. On the whiteboard, Michael has written “Smarty Pants Team!!!” In multiple, neon colors, and “Boring Budget Team :( ” in brown. The two titles are separated by a single line. All of the office workers are in the conference room, including TOBY.
I have been asked by David Wallace to convene this meeting, and I’m afraid that we’re going to be split up into two branches. Each one equally important, but one far more exciting and successful than the other.
I’d like to go with the other branch. Where will they be located?
You are too old and your health is too questionable to be on the Smarty Pants team. So you will be with the budget team.
So this isn’t really the branch being broken up.
No, Jim it is being broken up. Two teams. Two goals. A tale of two cities.
Jim needs to be with the Smarty Pants team. He would be a good brand ambassador.
I’d buy whatever he’s selling!
Ew, Meredith, no. Jim isn’t hot, he’s cute. We need a boy next door vibe.
(Visibly jealous)
So what, now you’re gonna say Jim is cute and think that’s okay?
How many times do we have to go over this? Jim is cute. You’re hot. It wouldn’t work.
Jealous? No. Not of Jim. Kelly has assured me that I’m actually too hot for a product like this. Not to mention, I would only shill for a product I truly believed in and Smarty Pants isn’t it.
Did David Wallace really say he wanted you to spend a whole day at work on these impractical cardboard pants?
Yes he did. And congratulations, you just cost us our access to the gay community, because you are on the budget team. You have committed a hate crime against your own race.
Gay isn’t a race, Michael, and these pants are a hate crime.
And Angela is on the budget team.

2021.10.18 16:57 mystiqueallie Ownership of the partition

I was re-listening to Emily D Baker’s coverage of Pest’s case last night while doing the dishes and noticed something. I’ve wondered what evidence the prosecution will use to prove the partition belonged to Josh (beyond the same password as other accounts thing because he very well could have shared his password since he’s not the brightest crayon in the box). I’ve never seen this mentioned here, but I noticed in the interview with the HSI agents, Pest admitted the TOR browser is on at least one device - if that browser was not on the Windows/Covenant Eyes monitored side, then he admitted to knowing the partition exists.

2021.10.18 16:57 Alert_Chapter7752 24M My nose just wouldn't unclog and it's been monthhsss

Its been almost the whole of 2021. My nose is either runny or clogged. Mostly clogged. Especially from one side. The other side gets clogged as soon as one opens. I dont remember having both my nostrils 100% open in 2021. I do sneeze more than i did before(almost 10 times a day) and then my nose starts running. But the bigger problem is the clogging. It makes exercises difficult as i have to inhale and exhale with much more pressure to get optimum oxygen to my lungs. At the time of writing my left nostrils is 80% clogged and the right one is like 60-70% open. Any remedies to open my nostrils? Any otc medicies or sprays or exercises anything.
Also i did have a nasal operation due to an accident 7 8 years back, in which the doctors almost redid my whole nasal bone. Could it be something related to the bone not built properly or like in an uneven shape or something idk?

I never heard of Trivium nor listened to any of their music before. I ended up buying it for the album cover and it was the beginning a lifelong relationship.

2021.10.18 16:57 Vinny32295 The Next Great MEME: Wework Space

The Invisible Hand The stock market is essentially that a marketplace, buyers and sellers. Prices move up and down depending on whatever whoever is willing to pay. If a stock rises so much sellers come in and drop the price, if it falls to much buyers come in and pick up the price. If every single person puts a $100 order for a $1 stock but there are no selling orders $100 is the new price. Every other thing you hear about the market are attempts at justification for those prices, cashflow discount, dividend discount, P/E, EPS, all mumbo jumbo to try to make sense of why A trades for more than B. It is also why you see “MEME” stocks trade at traditional mind boggling prices/valuations, because it just boils down to what someone is willing to pay for those shares and the majority agree that AMC should trade north of $35 and GME over $150.
Making a MEME
There are a few key points that contribute into turning a stock into a MEME Stock. The stock must be recognizable to have staying power. In order for the MEME to stay a MEME and hold its price, it has to be a company people have heard about or MSM (Main Street Media) have or will cover heavily. Secondly America loves a Comeback, and so does the market/Members, the stock has to be heavily beat down if a narrative about how its business was destroyed by Covid that’s a double plus. Finally the stock has to have a very low float or highly shorted, I would contend the first point is magnitudes more important. With these 3 points in our mind lets dive into who the target is.
Frankenstein’s Monster
Wework was once a shining Jewel in the Softbank investment portfolio, investing at least $18.5 billion in WeWork since 2017, including $6 billion when a fundraising round valued the startup at $47 billion in January 2019(1). But governance and profitability concerns in addition to a disaster IPO lead to their $47B valuation getting chopped down to nearly $10B in oct 2019 (2). Over this time MSM loves to take about WeWork it was a darling that got absolutely obliterated, can you imagine if it went on a monster AMC/GME run, point 1 check. Wework’s primary business is real estate, they buy/renovate office space and then sublease this same workspace to multiple companies or share of whole offices for 1 largely customer. Covid19 has dramatically changed the work/life balance, we are going on almost 2 years of the pandemic where most white collar has been done remotely or at home. Now with labor holding a lot of the cards the ability to work from anywhere for at least for 2-3 a week the traditional office model is being disrupted. A fundamental argument can be made that WeWork’s business is about to experience a renaissance driven by the Covid 19 pandemic as corporation adopt smaller satellite offices since more staff can work remotely or at home. If you wwatch CNBC you may have caught David Faber mention the “SPAC POP” which is a sudden increase in the SPAC price when the deal closes due to a large 95 or greater percent redemption of space shares. Due to point 1 and 2 I expect the BOWX/Wework Spac to have an insanely high redemption rate maybe 98%, this will result in a super low float.
Gamma Gameplan
One of the most potent tools in the MEME trader arsenal is the long naked call option. The call option gives you the right but not the obligation to purchase 100 shares at a price you choose. A market maker sells you this call for a premium which is determined by a number of factors such as length of time, difference in price, volatility of the stock, etc. Now MM’s have a number of ways they can neutralize the risk to selling these options, 1 of which is buying the underlying stock, so that as the stock rises so does their share price thus offsetting their losses. The other option would be buying a higher strike so cap their losses. I believe a GAMMA Blitz can be executed around the SPAC POP in order to drive the stock price up. For Example the vote to close the Wework SPAC is set for Oct 19, if passed Wework shares will start to trade on Oct 21. The nearest call option for BOWX is the Nov 19 call with the highest strike being the 17.5. If enough of these calls are sold there is currently no higher strike for MM’s to hedge with, they would have to buy the underlying stock to cover themselves, but this will move the price significantly since the float will be dramatically reduced due to the high redemption.
I am targeting a share price over $20 by Nov 1st. This is not financial advice or a call to action, I am simply sharing my thoughts and ideas, please invest/trade at your own discretion.
