2023.06.03 04:56 sysgeek Public lands for shooting near SLC

Hi Everyone, I love shooting, but I've found it hard to find good areas (public lands) to do it anymore. Many I used to use are now full of condos or very far from the Sale Lake area. I also enjoy taking things out to shoot, like old hard drives, or small things I want to destroy. I always clean up my mess, I'm not one of those that leaves my garbage for others to deal with. That being said, I know there are business I can go to where I can shoot anything from a little .22 to a 30-06 as well as shotgun, but they don't let me bring things to destroy. Where can I go?

2023.06.03 04:54 SuspiciousJuice5825 What did you write in your letter?

My housing market is white hot. Houses sell in a day or less, even ugly busted ones. I've already lost 1 offer (the sellers went with someone who waived their inspection). A dream house (I refuse to say 'my' because last time my heart was broken and it wasn't even a dream house 😂) went up for sale today.
The location is so perfect, I asked my realtor if we can skip the pretense of going to see it and put in an offer. He said no. Lol. But we are going to see it tomorrow at 1pm and as long as it isn't a falling apart mess, I'm offering.
The thing is, I can only offer about 10k over without blowing my budget. And my loan is VA so it will have to be appraised and meet certain requirements. This house looks like it will meet those requirements, but you never know. That has alot of sellers not accepting VA loans.
I also offered to waive inspection with an inspector coming for a walk through with me tomorrow and later, an inspection for informational purposes only.
I don't know if it will be enough, our market is hot and affordable houses are very very rare. It's a blue ribbon school district with winning football teams, half the town is just mansions on a lake.
I want to write a letter to attach to my offer. I'm a USN Vet, and my family has lived and worked in this community for 13 years. I'm also a girlscout leader and volunteer at many programs in our county. Is that what I should put in the letter, or something more like "I love this house and promise to take good care of it"?
What did you put? If your a seller, did you care about the letter or just about the $?

In no particular order, this Saturday, June 3, we have:

2023.06.02 21:17 CPTpurrfect The Dangers of Modern Gaming - written by someone who loves gaming

Hey fellow siblings and dads,
I love video games, they were always a part of my life. I met a lot of dear friends through them over the years in many different games. And that's why I want to talk about something I positively can describe as disgusting and gross.
Or more accurately: Predatory.
Over the last twenty years the focus of the game industry became more and more towards multiplayer games and away from single player games, and more and more towards multiplayer-centric games.
And I want to focus your attention on the first sentence of the last paragraph - to be precise on "the focus of the game industry". What does that mean? Does that mean that single player games weren't popular anymore? No. Not one bit. It means that the people behind the big publishers (those who pay for the development of most if not all larger games but not necessarily develop them themselves) realized something very important to them: That they can monetize multiplayer games - or as they call them "live services" - far better than single player games.
It isn't that single player games were dead or didn't sell, it is that the game industry wished them dead.
Because what's more effort? Developing a new game, or just putting another 50 skins or so into an existing one? The pay out is probably roughly the same, whether you pay 60 up front or enough people by a handful of those skins so that the average player paid 60. I think you can make an educated guess what is more effort.
But if it was just that I wouldn't have felt the need to make this post. This is truly just the tip of an iceberg I want you to show here.
And for the next part we talk about a concept some of you might be familiar with, but don't worry if you aren't - I'll explain it in detail. The concept in question is a four letter acronym, and it is called
F.O.M.O.
Or spelt out: Fear Of Missing Out. And the name really tells you the whole story what it is about - about the publisher's intentional creation of FOMO within vulnerable users - not all are vulnerable and if count among the ones who aren't affected by this at all, you are truly "one of the lucky ones".
FOMO is about "limited time offers" and I think most who are into gaming can see where this is going:
Rotating storefronts (Fortnite, VALORANT), battle passes (every multiplayer game in existence, seemingly), sales, limited time offers (BUY NOW! ONLY AVAILABLE FOR XX), etc.
To take VALORANT as an example for the first point, imagine you see a cool skin in the shop, but it isn't even the one you really want for the gun - just one that you think is still an "upgrade" over the one you currently use. I mean, sure it isn't the one you really want, but,... who knows when that hits the store shelves? And when I don't buy it now, I still prefer that one over what I currently have, and most-ish others, so... if I don't buy it now, who knows when I can get another skin for that gun that I actually like? Right? Better buy it now, right?
Does that feel remotely familiar? That is pure FOMO. And I don't think it surprises you to learn that this is 100% on purpose. As said earlier: Something I can positively describe as predatory. And the prey, that is the player.
Another concept integral to live services is what is investment - many of them are free to play, so starting them doesn't take a lot of you - just download and install the game, maybe you need to make a new account and you are good to go - great, right? How easy it is to get started. Often you then also get something to make the start smoother, some kind of starter pack, ain't that nice, now you even have some stuff, straight of the bat!
So, now that we are all hopefully a bit more cynical... let me ask you: Why do you think do they give you those things to make the start feel so smooth? Why not just make the experience as a whole smooth and get rid of the "starter pack"? I want to remind you what aspect we are talking about here, once more:
Investment.
Because that way you already have so many nice things you earned from playing the game - stuff you'd usually often have to spent money for or otherwise would take a whole lot longer. Ain't that nice? You can earn stuff by playing. Almost like... a job. But this isn't a job, right? This is FUN, right? This is what you want to invest your time in after work to get it out of the system, to relax.
Fast forward: You are now playing for a couple of hours, maybe this is your second or third day, and the goodies from the starter pack are basically used up. You feel how the dopamine cycle gets stretched and how what you do now isn't fun anymore - it is boring. You really want that experience back you have just a few hours ago, where everything was fun and the dopamine was flowing freely. Well, how nice that in the shop you see this super exclusive starter offer for a really sizeable amount of items, that otherwise would cost you a fortune, for, what is that? 90% off? Just for a few more hours available? Oh boy, better get out the credit card, wouldn't want to miss that, I mean I already played a couple of hours and I had a genuinely good time with it, if that stretches it out for a few more hours, that'd be great, and what's 10 bucks? That's a steal!
So you buy it. And for another few hours, maybe a day, you have a great time, dopamine flows freely again. You enjoy what you are doing. And it was definitely worth the money, right? But then we are back at the point where the experience starts to drag. And the items from the super exclusive starter offer are also nearly gone as well. I mean I could buy items from the shop now, but what earlier was 10 bucks would now be 50, and that's a lot of money,... but I mean I already paid... so... but it's really a lot of money, I could by myself something outside of that game for that. A nice dinner, a good book and maybe still have enough for cinema tickets, but... I already invested money.
So might as well.
-50$
And that brings us to what investment leads us, to be a bit melodramatic about it - you might have noticed I do like being a bit melodramatic - the THIRD HORSEMAN OF THE GAMING-APOCALYPSE...
okay that might've been a bit much, but it really is basically the other side of the same coin as investment:
The Sunk Cost-Fallacy.
Popular in gambling and live services alike, it describes the "in for a penny, in for a pound"-mentality - or in other words, why we just paid 50 bucks for a bunch of crap that will be used up within two hours. Because we already invested those 10 bucks earlier. Because that told our brain "it is okay to invest money into this" and that is a huge flood gate gone. A flood gate certain companies obviously want gone. So we are ready to pay more. And more. And more. Because I mean if we already paid now 60, might as well take the big super deluxe pack for 100 next time, I mean I get 10% more value out of that than if I had bought 2x50 buck packs.
And now let's talk about an element popularized by Fortnite you can basically find in every online game these days, one mentioned earlier already, that unites FOMO, investment and the Sunk Cost-fallacy in one fine package:
Battle Passes.
Basically inescapable in modern multiplayer games, to not aware allow you to earn rewards for a limited time within a battle pass. And for those blissfully unaware, allow me to explain the concept:
A battle pass (BP) is a form of continuous rewards for keep playing the game, you can think of it in a way as a stamp card. Except that this stamp card often has a very limited time during which you need to fill it up to get the payout, as they are usually only active for a very limited amount of time, this differs from game to game, but common durations are between 1 and 3 months. Instead of the stamps you have a separate "battle pass level" (or something called something else that is functionally a separate level), and (usually) two reward tracks - a free one and a paid one. The free one drip feeds you nice rewards every few levels, but the paid one is where it is obviously at: Exclusive cosmetic items you can only find in here (hello FOMO my old friend), other stuff you'd usually have to pay obscene amounts of cash for, etc.
I think you can see how this works already - but there is an extra kicker that makes them worse:
Battle pass progression is often capped per day/week and is usually achieved with missions you do on the side even if you don't plan on doing them.
So even if you aren't interested in the battle pass you still will slowly progress, you will get your free rewards and one day you might just look at it and go "well that's a lot of stuff I'd already get if I buy the premium pass upgrade now" - after all you level the pass as whole, so if you buy it late you still get all the premium rewards for the previous levels immediately. And you better believe that the game will do everything in its power to make sure you see what you could get "for just a handful of bucks".
So you buy the pass. But if you buy the pass, you obviously don't want it to go to waste, now you want all the rewards, right? You want to reach the maximum battle pass level, otherwise you lose out on stuff you paid for, right?!
And now let's go back a few paragraphs: Battle pass progression is often capped per day/week. Can you see why they'd do that? Why they don't just allow you to play 83478 hours non-stop to get everything immediately? Why they want you just to play... a few hours a day. And even if you don't feel like it, you better log in and do your daily missions, right? I mean you don't want to miss out on all the stuff you already paid the money for. Better now also pay the time for it.
And let's go back a few more paragraphs: But this isn't a job, right? I mean, you do your time per day, even if you don't feel like it, to get the rewards,... that does sound an awful lot like a job, suddenly, doesn't it?
And now thanks to battle passes, you can't just quit, I mean you'd at least would want to finish the current battle pass, you paid for it, right? You wouldn't want to waste that money, right? So better finish that one and quit after. And,... oh, what is that? I could PREORDER the next battle pass?! And I get it 40% cheaper? I mean,... I don't really enjoy playing the game that much anymore, but I'd be stupid not to buy it, right?! That's a massive steal! I can't let such an opportunity pass me by!
And as said, that's not one game that's doing that. It's most of them. They compete for your most valuable - no not your money, your time. Imagine if you don't just play one game like that, but multiple, imagine what it does to you.
To those who feel caught reading this: It isn't your fault. You are a victim. And it isn't your fault. You just wanted to spend your precious free time with something you enjoy.
I don't think I surprise anyone at this point that all this very much isn't just by design, but almost the central goal of many of those companies, as this gives them the most recurring revenue and makes sure that even if they have a game that does poorly their other stuff is still active and lines their pockets with cash at the expense of those vulnerable to those mechanisms.
Lastly, for those who want to know more about this a video from 7 years ago at a mobile gaming conference that goes into more detail how most of this works and what tricks are employed, most fitting summed up with a sentence by the speaker: We can talk about the morality of this at the end, if there is time.
And all this is written by me, who loves video games. And it is written, because and not despite me loving video games. I am not saying "don't game" or "forbid your kids to play games" - games can and should be something wonderful. But what I want to do is to inform you about this. So that you know the tricks they try to employ against you. Companies never are your friend, but most video game companies are a special kind of evil.
Much Love
Big Bro (or for the ones who read this older than me - Lil Bro)

2023.06.02 21:15 flyingace1203 [Nassau County] Question about Property Tax Assessments on New Construction / Rebuilds

I'm house shopping, and I'm having some trouble understanding / estimating what assessments will look like for new construction or rebuilds (retaining prior structure's basement foundation) in Nassau County.
Many of the new constructions that have recently sold (say 1-2 years ago), when I look them up on the county tax website, have exemptions for new construction / new home improvement value. Is this because of the "The Assessed Value for Class I residential properties (excluding new construction and renovations) cannot be increased by more than 6% per year or 20% over 5 years."? Because, when I look it up on the county website, "Value added by new construction or renovation is not limited," which seems to imply that assessments will immediately reset close to the transaction / sale price.
Or is what I'm observing part of the Home Improvement Exemption (HIEX)? - "The exemption will be phased in over an 8-year period (with the 9th year having no exemption), and does not require the homeowner to file an application. But all improvements need to be completed in time to be published on the roll released in January 2023." Which means only recent builds will benefit from this phase in, and no more new builds?
For new construction, should I assume that assessments will be adjusted up to the sale price immediately (when the county gets to it: 1 or 2 years), phased in per the HIEX (~7-8 years), or longer (phased in per the 6% per year and no more than 20% over 5 years)?
Any clarity would help, thanks!
