As I spent 1 week wandering around to 57 parks (over 3 weeks) and Newport Beach, it's unbelievable the wealth in this are. People are in 1-5 million dollar houses. I think I make a ton (lose it all to rent) and these people must make 2-10 times more than me. A single house will be 1 million and has 3 cars in the driveway (3 bmws). A punk kid shows up with his girl friend and he's driving a Mercedes SUV.
Heck, the cafe work here drives a Mercedes, the security guard drives a BMW 3 series. haha.
I'm wondering where all the money is coming from. The houses on Balboa Island are incredible. People have their boats parked in front of their mansions.
Makes me a little jealous. The haves and the have nots.
It really sucks playing these rich people at Ingress (google gps game). They drive around all day or as far as they want at any hour cuz they have no jobs and don't have to worry about gas money.
But on my 2 days off, I see all these people just lounging around doing nothing all day. Whose supporting them? Where's my Yacht?
These people have no soul though. They're so superficial and phony.
4/15 - Up to rank 20 on the ladder. I just looked up some builds and started doing way better. I killed some guy with a hunter before he could even do anything to me, hahaha. I used work money for $100 in cards. I'm tempted to do $200.
4/7 - Playing every day now, doing quests. I suck.
Me and Momette are playing tons. He's on my 2nd account where people seem to think it's me and msg me all the time.
Man I got some guy who took my deathwing, and made it attack ME and kill me. What nonsense!
I got a guy who I had to like 1-3 health, then he pulls (2) heal himself by 8 cards and won it all.
I have no time, but I'm playing a little. It's super addicting. I've only played 6-10 games.
I Super love Hearthstone.
My preferred way to play is to just get enough dailies to have 500-600 gold saved up. After that I have only played arena, choosing champions that would complete dailies. From there the daily gold and the arena gold make it self sustaining.
Right now there are too few cards to make ranked fun for me. All the decks are to similar. The game can only get better with more card choices though.
I've been playing the hell out of it. I've probably Opened 60-70 packs of cards by now and have thus far avoided the cash shop.
The game is getting less and less fun to play for me as I've been going up against more and more people playing with literally 10-15 legendary cards and the game becomes less strategic and more about who has spent the most time/money for the best cards.
Sure a guy with a shitty deck can beat a guy with a legendary deck but only if the guy with legendaries is bad or has extremely bad luck with his draws.
It's very easy to learn Blazer. I found the tutorial built into the game itself extremely helpful in teaching you the ins and outs of the game. You can always practice against the AI and the higher difficulty AI isn't too bad.
I spent all day at the "ghetto" park in Irvine. It's in a nice area but... So these 10 kids and 1 white kid show up with a case of water. They play basketball, then proceed to throw every water bottle all over the park. They left a huge mess. Then as they were playing they were screaming the n-word and fucker non stop until THE PARK CLEARED OUT. All the moms etc, left. Then they left the park a huge mess and ran off. I picked up all their water bottles then noticed they left a xbox game. It said COD MW3, but inside was NBA 2K. I thought I could steal their game cuz they were such fuckers, but I decided to put it under the case of water. If they came back and looked for it, they might see someone picked up their mess and didn't steal their game. I went back later and the case was gone and the game was gone. Who knows.
But how many stereotypes are represented there: basketball, no parenting, bad language, and throwing trash :( My spouse said LOW income housing. Even nice cities have to provide low income housing. If anyone sees those kids, they make racist stereotype conclusions based on how they act. That's no way to represent your people. :( People keep saying call the cops on these kids but others say you can't get them on swearing. Seems like you could get them on something. The problem is their swearing loudly driving people out of the park.
About a month ago they came over to the park 1 park away while my kid was practicing for basketball and they were doing the same thing. I've been to parks for 1 1/2 years and I never see that kind behavior except from that group of kids.
4/14 - Best places so far, around basketball courts, at places where people park at a park right in front of their cars, and trees where people sit down.
4/14 - I'm so sore. I'm really getting sick of pennies. I'll show you how many I have, so many haha.
4/13 - You really start to learn about people's behavior. I'm finding lots of dimes and I figured out kids probably kept those to call their parents back before cellphones. I also learned basketball courts are the best place for money. People set their money down to play, then lose it. I've made MOST of my money around several basketball courts.
4/13 - Playgrounds? I have made $5-10 off playgrounds and they give the coins with the best condition BUT every idiot with a detector checks there. I'm making most of my money just digging in the grass. Sometimes I really jack the grass up but I run. haha.
4/13 - What's a CHANGE DUMP? Someone sits down by a tree or whever and drops their change. I found a fresh change dump for the first time at a park I was farming for the 2nd time. That's interesting to see. My biggest change dump was 4 quarters, which i was super happy about or 10 dimes in a hole.
4/13 - Dug all day, made about $4. I went to the ghetto basketball court and that had plenty. At the second oldest park in Irvine I found $.80 with 3 more baseball fields to check. I suspect there's a lot more.
4/12 - Went to 3 parks, only made about $2.17 yesterday. I need another ghetto park where they all drop money.
4/11 - Beach trip failure #4. I give up at the beach but I went to the parks around the beach and did fine. F the beach!
4/9 - Only dug up $1.23 at the same park for 3rd day. Those aholes seemed to have taken about 4 rolls of pennies and just thrown them all over the whole park. I should give up and look for more quarters/dimes elsewhere. I don't know what I'm after really. $ value or just finding things or what. I'm asking myself that. I'm totally addicted and love it so much, esp when I can find things.
4/8 - Dug up $3.80 today. 3rd biggest day.
3/30 - Spent 2 days metal detecting. It's so much fun. Today we found a field where they have a pumpkin patch or xmas tree lot. We pulled a 1/2 a bag of nails and rusted metal. We pulled out our biggest score in one day ever, $2.14. We're up to over $7 now. haha. It was so much fun, we found a ton of money near the entrance all just laying on the ground, no work.
3/28 - Looking forward to trying out my sniper coil. Had no time. I ordered an extra lower arm so I can attach the sniper cord OR the regular coil and swap them out.
3/27 - Received the new detector yesterday. I put on the sniper coil and we went out to the park. Then something went terribly wrong. We kept finding a target, then it would disappear, 3 times. So either something is wrong with the detector, or our pointer which might need more batteries. I wasn't able to figure it out because it started raining right away which was very disappointing for us. We had looked forward to finding something with the new sniper coil. :( :( :(
3/24 - Spent like 3 hours detecting at Big Bear only to find only $0.07 haha. Someday we'll find something. I found a rusted padlock!
3/24 - Returned Metal Detector because I discovered it wasn't beeping properly when you run over targets. It would beep the first time, then never again. It's supposed to keep beeping. We also scratched up the coil really bad, I'm going to reorder it and get a cover this time.
3/24 - Used my bday money to buy a Sniper Coil. I tried it out and it's amazing. It finds thinks with a sniper shot. But...
Meanwhile, in an attempt to avoid losing large quantities of circulating nickels to melting, the United States Mint introduced new interim rules on December 14, 2006, that criminalized the melting and export of pennies (which as of 2013 cost 1.83 cents to produce) and nickels. Violators of these rules can be punished with a fine of up to $10,000, five years imprisonment, or both. The rules were finalized on April 17, 2007. The melt value of a nickel for some time was more than five cents, including nearing double its face value in May 2007. Since then, the supply and demand of the coin's composition metals have stabilized. A nickel's melt value fell below its face value for several weeks between October and November 2012, and more recently again from late February through April 2013. In February 2014, it was reported that the Mint was conducting experiments to use copper-plated zinc (the same composition used for the United States 1 cent coin) for the nickel.
