2021.10.25 16:23 shirleyso Do NOT ever join Marriott Vacation Club program . They lock account, don't let you use points you have paid for
I first joined Marriott Vacation Club Asia Pacific program in Hong Kong about 15 years ago, and became the first person in Hong Kong to join. I paid USD22, 000 for the club points.
The annual maintenance fee has been a burden. It was a 50- year obligation to pay the ever increasing annual maintenance fee. How ridiculous. Tied up for 50 years!
A lot in lifestyle has changed over the years. I have now moved to North America, and do not travel much after retirement.
Starting from In 2019 I enquired about giving up the membership. I was assured by their customer service that so long as I sign a surrender deed (with absolutely no refund of any part of the USD 22,000 I paid) , the annual maintenance fee obligation would cease.
Since I did not find the Asia Pacific club points useful , I paid the USD 900 or so maintenance fee for 2020 and also conversion feee of USD 140 to convert club points to Marriott Bonvoy ("MB") points. Their staff assured me in writing that the Marriott Bonvoy points and Club points are 2 separate systems as one can hold MB points without holding club points.
But when I wanted to use the MB points earlier this year, I was informed that the MR points are locked as I did not pay the 2021 maintenance fee. Even if I am prepared to give up membership for which I had paid USD22,000 , plus annual maintenance fees over the years (including in 2020) and conversion fees over the years to convert club points to MB points, they just keep locking my MB points in an attempt to extort further 2021 maintenance fee from me. The excuse is always: AUDIT department demands that. Actually they could easily waive that in view of my special circumstances, including loyalty over the years!.
Please do NOT ever pay a lump sum to Marriott as they have the upper hand armed with fine prints in their contract - all worded to their advantages. Its way easy to pay large lump sums to them and they would keep charging whatever amount of annual maintenance fee they like and locking of account is always at their disposal - you can't book, can't do anything as an individual member . You always need to use official high points for their affiliated hotels even in low season.
Do NOT ever pay lump sum to join Marriott related program especially when there is a lot more choices than pre-internet era years ago.

1) Any good lance, spear, or glaive mods? Note: I already have the FFXV weapon pack and the Cosmo fantasy spear mod.
2) Does anyone know whether there is a mod containing the spears/lances from Genshin Impact out there somewhere? I would love to see those in a mod (even if it is not on the Nexus) with the swords, Greatswords, and bows already out there.

2021.10.25 16:23 feasibility-pro Who are the real estate wholesalers?
Real estate wholesalersare people who act as an intermediary between a buyer and a seller. Being a wholesaler is a good way to understand how to bargain property prices.
Becoming a wholesaler is a good way to step into the real estate industry, especially if you do not have much capital to invest. Moreover, mastering the art of wholesaling will help you in finding the best investment opportunities to purchase and will open multiple avenues for raising capital.

2021.10.25 16:23 gungur Should I buy the IKEA MATCHSPEL gaming chair?
I am a 21M 5’10” 210lb college student in Wisconsin, USA. I’m currently using some cheap off brand chair I got at Costco and am looking to get a more ergonomic chair with a headrest at an affordable price for my gaming/productivity PC desk setup.
IKEA looks to be my best best in regards to budget chairs. There are no MARKUS chairs in stock at either of two IKEA locations near me but the MATCHSPEL is in stock in the black and red color for $190. The nearest IKEA is several hours away but I can have it shipped for only $4 to my local FedEx (or $20 shipping directly to my house).
Is the chair worth it for me at $190 and is it okay to have it shipped? I’ve been considering waiting for a used IKEA chair to pop up on FB Marketplace or Craigslist for cheaper. Also, I’ve heard bad things about IKEA shipping and their wait times.
I’ve also posted this in the IKEA subreddit but no one responded so far.

2021.10.25 16:23 badie_912 The state of SPACs
While I'm generally not a fan of $dwac or the artificial price movement on the stock I'm hoping it will generate some new excitement in the spac space that has taken a beating since Feb 2021.
There are lots of extremely undervalued spac plays to be had both pre-da and despacs with valuable business models, incredible leadership, products and services that are disrupting various sectors.
It may take time but it would be nice to see money flowing into companies doing great things for our economy and our world.
To name a few:

2021.10.25 16:23 kimcortazar My local bookstore has a virtual event with Cixin Liu
Long time lurker, first time posting. I've just finished the TBP trilogy and saw that Cixin Liu has a new collection of stories coming out called The Wandering Earth. Has anyone read his stories? My local bookstore in Seattle has a virtual event with Cixin Liu. You have to purchase the book to see the event, which I was going to anyway, so it seems worth it. Thought I would post if anyone is interested!

2021.10.25 16:23 Pale_Ad_899 Hey mom, I’m cutting off all my friends again
Forever, this is all I can seem to do 😅 I discover the bad in people and I emotionlessly remove them from my life.
They’re dramatic, they’re dysfunctional. They put their stress on me, and I take it, and I never get the same support back. They never seem to fully understand me. One day I can think someone is my bestfriend and the next day I’ll question if they even care one bit.
This last couple of friends I really liked. They go to college, they live together so I can hang out with both of them at once. Then, after a week of hanging out, one confessed a crush on me which turned into a sort of obsession and F’d that friendship up. She still tries to hang out but it ends up uncomfortable.
The other one has a fwb that she’s actually in an unknowing relationship with.. They get incredibly wasted, get in huge fights, he calls her from jail, she traps him in her car… It’s a nightmare and I’m all tangled in the middle of it (hes another friend I had that I cut off beforehand, for this exact shitty behavior)
Now I just want nothing to do with either of them. We’ve been growing a friendship for months but I just want to be left alone. Is everyone in the world this dysfunctional? Am I just selfish? I just want to have friends while not feeling so alone and frustrated.
