Nothing major - just something to encourage positivity!
I'll gift a copy of Bulletstorm to one winner and a copy of OnRush to a second winner.
I'll let the first winner choose what they want with the other game going to the second winner.
Just like this post and I'll pick winners sometime tomorrow afternoon!

You won’t have to pay it all back.. never have before on any stimulus.
Now next years taxes will probably have either a checkbox or line to enter the amount you ultimately receive this year (may be more than 1 stimulus) and we *may* have it added to your total income *or* have it taxed at a lower rate, possibly zero.
If there was some clause saying it had to be paid back next year.. it would be all over the news cause there are a ton of watchdog groups that have gone through the bill, both for and against.
Last stimulus I kinda remember a checkbox, but can’t remember if it was tax deferred or not taxed in the end. The business stuff is different though.
The W stimulus from 2008 was just a tax advance which is why people are worried this one might be. This one appears to be different however. But we are going to pay for it likely through hyperinflation, government can't just print 2 trillion dollars and it not have any consequences. In fact the amount of money printing that has been going on just to keep the banks and stock market from total collapse would boggle your mind. US credit rating is on the verge of a downgrade and the threat of moving away from the dollar as the world currency is very real. Any of these events occur and we are going to feel real economic pain.
Oh and this check is just to get people through April, so if this goes through May or longer, we are going to need another one at the least. Nevermind the fact that today was the first missed paycheck for many and we are still in March. People living paycheck to paycheck are in a world of shit right now and we have a lot of those people. And landlords are really going to feel it as there is going to be a mass amount of people skipping rent this month. Basically, shit hasn't even hit the fan yet. Anyway, on that happy note, stay safe.

I think what Jodou said is true. Looking back at the 2016 race and you'll see he was saying the same thing as of today. While the other runners seem to try to adopt to Bernie's ideology during the race and come off as fake. Honesty I can't stand any of them, use to be you ran on your goals to get elected but now it's just pander to what the people want for now but once elected switch back to what the runner wanted to do in the 1st place. Right now we have runner A, B, C, D, and E all saying the exact same thing about what they want to do once in office, so how do we know who we vote for will uphold what they ran on and not change once elected? That's why I voted for Trump in 2016 and will again in 2020, he's very rough around the edges but he sat himself apart from the rest of them and so far has done a decent job on alot of fronts and upheld what he was going to do once in office.

If I play Overwatch or Apex Legends it will keep me awake but I have legit fallen asleep playing Forza or TellTale games. I get up by 6:30 every morning though to get breakfast started for the kids and help get everything ready because I do school drop off on my way to work. I always figure I’ll have time to catch up on games once they are in high school and want less to do with there goofy old man.
My suggestion would be, find things you enjoy in real life, then gaming might become more enjoyable if you have less time to game.
