To say that I don’t like this monument, that I find it crass and insulting, does a disservice to the feelings in my heart. I’m being completely honest when I say that if a young, bright eyed child say, my cousin’s kid came to me to share his joy at having discovered the sublime ecstasy of creation and then showed me this fucking statue as his symbolic first step on the journey to becoming a true artist, I would have no choice as to what to do next. I would tearfully inform him that he had no future, creatively.
The Fed action marks only the second time since the Great Recession that it hiked the federal funds rate, which affects the cost of banks lending to each other and generally serves as a benchmark for rates. Last December, it also pushed up the fed funds rate by a quarter point, the first time that had happened since June 2005.

It vastly unbalancedas others have already said, but I explain a bit more why rather than defaulting on “dandwiki is bad.” You get nearly all the benefits of being a Champion Fighter (2 fighting styles, 4 attacks per round, additional ASIs) and a Paladin (Partial casting, a couple of smite like abilities, a couple of aura like abilities, and Find Steed as a ritual), on top of a host of other abilities that would be questionable if not blatantly OP even without being loaded on top of those other features, such as:A switchable perma buff that allows you to always have +1 AC, give enemies 2 to con saves with no spell attack/save required, variable resistance for you or an ally, or advantage to all saves for allied undead. Yes, it costs a spell slot, but it never deactivates unless you switch it. So you could just level up to 3, decide you want +1 AC forever, and spend a spell slot that day that will recover when you rest while retaining your bonus.A free magic weapon that doubles (triples?) as a holy symbol/spell focus and allows for up to 3 variable effects to be applied.The ability to burn a spell slot to gain resistance to damage for the next 4 attacks.
Growing up, basketball was my thing. I dreamed of supporting my family with my mediocre jump shot, my 5′ 8″ frame in the 4th grade and becoming an NBA All Star by the time I was 19. Sure enough, my growth spurt capped at 6′, I quit basketball junior year of high school, and any chance I had of averaging $5.15 million a year in the NBA was quickly sidelined (pun intended)..
