2021.09.22 06:42 katies_ Why are underquilts so expensive?

Hi hammockcamping
I’m trying to get the things my boyfriend and I would need to go hammock camping. We camped at Yellowstone this summer and slept in hammocks for one night. I was pretty comfy with my sleeping bag and a blanket on top, but it did get a little chilly under my back. The weather was clear so we were fine without a tarp.
So we have hammocks and sleeping bags and blankets we could use. I don’t really see the point in getting a top quilt specifically made for hammocking to start at least.
I’m thinking we’ll need a tarp/tarps and underquilts to be able to go out somewhere and depend on being able to sleep in the hammock. The dream is to be able to do motorcycle camping trips and pack everything we need in the metal boxes on his motorcycle.
In looking for underquilts, it seems like they are SO expensive. Why is this? Can anyone recommend a decent, less-expensive one?
Also, any tips on hammocking with 2 people would be appreciated. We stacked up on the same two trees in Yellowstone, which was kinda fun and maybe would require only 1 tarp instead of 2?
We are in Northern CA.

2021.09.22 06:42 Auzzie_xo Predictive validity of V45 on Gmatclub Verbal CAT?

Hi there,
I just competed the free Gmatclub verbal CAT, scoring a V45 with 30/36 correct, and I've got a couple of questions.
Question 1:
Is the adaptability of the test ANYTHING like the real GMAT or GMATPREP? There main reason I ask is that there were 16/36 questions that had an 85-95% difficulty rating on Gmatclub, 4 of these questions coming in a row at the start of the test! I made educated guesses (50/50) on about 8 of them, and fortunately (expectedly, I suppose) got 4 of those correct. Does the real test basically bombard you continuously (there was a smattering of high-end 'medium qs) with the hardest possible questions on the verbal section should you get a decent start?
Question 2:
Should I put ANY STOCK AT ALL in this result? Some of the questions just seemed dodgy for a variety of reasons (primarily a lack of logical coherence in some of the hardest CR and RC questions). I guess the only semi-useful way to ask this question is: Did anyone see a correlation between their performance on Gamtclub Verbal CATs and their performance on the real GMAT?
Thanks all!

2021.09.22 06:42 DigitalBoardGames Brainstorming how to improve board game playing experience with technology

Hello fellow board game players! My friends and I are thinking of ways to improve the board game playing experience without losing its soul. We've come to the following conclusions and would love your feedback, corrections, and ideas. Disclaimer: this is not an advertisement for an real product—just a brainstorming session.
TLDR: We want to make digital board games more like physical games by allowing them to be easily played with friends in the same room, but still keeping the best parts of digital (quick, easy, cheap). You can think of it like Jackbox games meets board games and Xbox Game Pass (tentative end goal).

In our estimation, we play games to spend time with people we love and to get some mental exercise and have fun doing it. Physical games nail both of those things, and digital board games do fine on the latter one. Let me put it into a little table for you...
Physical v. Digital

Medium Pros Cons
Physical Board Games Physical closeness with friends and family that can't be totally replicated remotely, the ease of adding house rules, and the life-like graphics 😉 Cost to acquire new games, setup and take down, manual tracking of resources and points, rule following not guaranteed, storage space, wear and tear, lost pieces ♟, untimely game ends due to children or pets, games can't easily take on vacation, and often the learning curve on new games can be steep.
Digital Board Games (e.g. TTS and BGA) (Depending on the platform) Easy set up, low cost, automated or assisted resource tracking, rule enforcement, remote play, and tutorials Disconnect from other players (focus is on the game, not the human experience), hard to play together, undo not supported, poor user interfaces make games unplayable and poor graphics make it undesirable, and often play better on a computer than on a phone (so can't really play with friends locally unless you're doing a LAN party 🖥)
We have noticed that most digital board game platforms have one or two of the Pros but most of them share all the Cons. Please correct if you feel that isn't fair.
Our Proposal We propose a new platform for digital board games which allows for better in-person play than any other digital board game platform/app out there. Thus we take the best Pro of physical games—playing together—and combine it with all of the Pros of digital games. The platform has the following features:
  1. A shared game board is displayed on a TV or laptop. This has the current board and all the public info/stats (e.g. scores and number of cards)
  2. Private hands and game controls are on mobile phones (assumed to be ubiquitous among board gamers).
  3. Some sort of subscription or pay to play model (hard to say what people want more) allowing players to access a large library of games at a fraction of the cost of buying each game physically.
Think of it as Jackbox games meets board games and Xbox Game Pass.
To play, you turn on your TV, hit the cast option on your phone and it will launch the public board on the TV (optionally with QR code to make connecting really easy for all the friends). Mobile phones are connected to the TV. As long as someone in the group has a subscription or has bought a game, you can play it. You can be up and running on any game in 2 minutes or less. And you get to play games with your friends from the comfort of your couch!
Additional features could include:

So what do you guys think? Can you think of something that would make it even better? Could this ever replace your physical board games (think of all the space you would save)? Do you see any major flaws? Do you need additional details? Any other subs this should be reposted to?
Thanks for the discussion!

2021.09.22 06:41 bobbybobsonday How do I refute this pro-bitcoin information ?

Basically the point is in 1971 we left the gold standard and the site gives a barrage of information to show how bad this has been. Rise inequality, less pay relative to productivity, rise in populism, drop in purchasing power, stagnant income growth for those not in the top 1%. The overall argument being a currency with an unlimited supply is what creates many of the issues we today
