Roadblock 1: Teams go to the Stratosphere hotel where the chosen team member must ride all three rides on the Stratosphere Tower looking for a clue that will lead them to 1 of 3 hotels on the Strip (Paris, Cosmopolitan, and Planet Hollywood). Once one of the clues is found they must tell the ride operator what hotel to receive their next clue.
Roadblock 2: Once teams arrive to their hotel the person that did not do the last roadblock must go into the casino of their chosen hotel and find a poker table that is covered in poker chips. Team members must look through the poker chips to find 12 chips (representing the 10 regular legs and both halves of the super leg) that have images of things they encountered on each leg of the race, however there are 12 chips with images of things that were not encountered on the race that are meant to throw team members off. Once the team member gets all 12 correct chips they must show them to the dealer so that they can receive the clue to the finish line.
Finish Line clue: Where the Grand Canyon and Silver states are joined. Answer: Hoover Dam.
Additional task: Upon arrival in Las Vegas teams must make their way to the Coca-Cola Store where they will order and drink the International Tray to receive their next clue.
How do guys in areas with great singles scene stay MGTOW?
I recently made a post talking about going to Latin American countries next year. I'm just started to question my ability to stay MGTOW there. Back in my younger years, my ego/hubris always made me think, "That shit won't happen to me. I'm different." Yet I'd never do anything to prevent bad things from happening to me. I just thought I was different and that was that. But reality would hit hard and I found out I was just like any other guy. For instance, I might go to a casino and think, "I won't spend more than $100. I'm not like some jabroni who gets hooked after one stroke at the slots. I have self control." But then I'd end up spending closer to $400. I wasn't different. So I want to avoid the trappings of my own ego leading me into a hole. My dilemma: I currently live in the U.S. state of Minnesota. Never liked it here for a variety of reasons. But, unfortunately, I've been back here since late 2018 and stuck way to close to my family for my own liking. The single scene here is garbage. Girls aren't that friendly and they tend to marry their sweetheart right after high school or college. If you're 25 and single in Minnesota, you're an odd duck cuz everyone is coupling up by that age. I went MGTOW in 2019. It's easy to be MGTOW in a place like this. Real easy. However, I'll be in Rio de Janeiro next year, where sex and relationships are far more relaxed and the women are far more friendly/less uptight. My question for you guys who live in a place with a great singles scene, where you can get sex and a relationship easy, how do you stay MGTOW? It's easy for those of us in areas where the single scene sucks to stay MGTOW. But for those of you in areas that are great for singles, what steps do you take to stay MGTOW. It's easy for my hubris to believe that I'll be MGTOW anywhere. But I'm human. I might just fall onto the plantation when I move to an area with a great singles scene. EDIT: Thanks for the helpful tips and advice, guys. Much appreciated.

Hey everyone! I know that describing the BEST tourist attraction/sight in each country might be controversial or subjective, but I would to receive better knowledge from you locals by describing what is without a doubt the well-recognized site in your country. I watched some Geography Now videos but probably some of locals may disagree.... So far, I have learnt the following is more well-known by country. Eiffel Tower in Paris, France. Big Ben Clock Tower or Buckingham Palace in London, England in the UK. Colosseum in Rome or the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Pisa, Italy Mount Fuji in Japan The Great Wall in northern part of China (also the Tiananmen Square in Beijing.) Parthenon in Athens Greece The Pyramid and the Great Spynx in Giza, Egypt Chichen Itza in Yucatán, Mexico Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, Cambodia Taj Mahal in Agra, India Machu Picchu in Cuzco, Peru Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, Germany. The Mermaid Statue in Copenhagen, Denmark. Kremlin in Moscow, Russia. Blue Lagoon in southwestern Iceland Christ the Reedemer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Angel Falls in Auyán-tepui, Venezuela ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF EXQUISITE SITES IN THE USA (My 2nd home for 2 decades) which I cannot choose one, thus Statue of Liberty in New York, Mt Rushmore in South Dakota, Hollywood Mountain in Los Angeles Casinos in Las Vegas, Nevada. Palmetto Tree in South Carolina (my home state) The Alps in Switzerland Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Burj Khalifa in Dubai, UAE. Pha That Luang in Vientiane, Laos. Anne Frank’s House and the Windmill pipe tower in the Netherlands. The Parliament Building in Budapest, Hungary. Maybe..... The Hill of Crosses in Šiauliai, Lithuania. Charles Bridge in Prague or the Brno Cathedral (one that is surrounded with many buildings) which both are in Czech Republic. Either the Saragada Familia in Barcelona or the Alhambra Palace in Grenada which both are in Spain. Oceans in Portugal (Portuguese LOVE their sea) Boracay Beaches in the Philippines (which is my birth country) I did not went to the following countries, I am extremely passionate at Geography ever since the age of 5. Geography Now Barby is my man for this field of study. I played “Tetris Plus” on Playstation and “The Illusion of Gaia” (PAL version title: “The Illusion of Time”) on Super Nintendo (Japan: Super Famicom). Both games influenced me to savour the sights of each country. Please correct me if my observation skills are severely flawed or if you want to disagree with me, though I am still learning. Thank so much for your precious time to read my post!

This concert was cancelled at the very last minute and the following statement was made the following day. Jay Kay would like to apologise to disappointed fans for the cancellation of last night's show in France. Jay's on-going groin injury has been diagnosed as a hernia which will be need to be operated on later in the summer. Following an MRI scan last week specialists had advised rest but Jay has insisted he wants to try to finish the current run of dates. Doctors have said that provided he manages the pain sufficiently he can continue performing if he feels able. During the course of the past two days the pain flared up again and yesterday he reluctantly decided he did not feel he well enough to perform last night. After two days rest he is hopeful he will be able to complete the remaining 4 shows of the current run, including Toulon tomorrow night. Jay said "I would like to thank fans for their understanding, this is a very frustrating injury and some days the pain is just too extreme to perform to a standard I believe is acceptable. I promise I will do my best to come back out again soon when I'm fully fit and am optimistic I'll be able to pull off the remaining shows of the run."

Belgium, CANCELLED: Antwerp, Lotto Arena
The Jamiroquai Facebook page wrote the following on 28 October - "We are sorry to announce the cancellation of the gig at Lotto Arena, Antwerp (Belgium), on 3rd December. This is due to unforeseen logistical problems, which have led to the difficult decision to cancel the gig. We hope to re-arrange the gig in 2012."
All of Bolsonaro's Men - An Explanation on how Brazil's Current Politics and why a Cabinet Meeting is now on Youtube (Part 3)
This is the final part explaining Bolsonaro's April 22nd cabinet meeting. At the end there are some final remarks, and in the comments my sources. Braga Netto introduces Abraham Weintraub, Minister of Education Note: Weintraub currently is being sued for a racist tweet that implied China created Covid Weintraub: [...] I don't want to be a slave in this country. And end with this crap that is Brasília. This is a cancer of corruption, of privilege. [...] The people here lose perception, empathy, public relations. [...] We are losing the fight for liberty. This is what the people is calling for. They are not calling for more State, for more projects, to have more ... the people are calling for liberty, full stop. Note: This right now is one of the most controversial moments of the meeting, with the Supreme Court taking legal action on what he says right now Weintraub: In my opinion, I'd arrest all those lazy bums. Starting with the Supreme Court. [...] I notice there's many people with a personal agenda. [...] I have a bunch of lawsuits in the ethics committee of the presidency. I'm the only one here that took a lawsuit. [...] I'm really here with an open chest, as you know it, I get shot ... hate ... hate the Communist Party [Redacted] They are trying to turn us into a colony. [...] We need to end this thing of people and privileges. [...] Bolsonaro: Let me complement this. What Weintraub is saying - I'm 65 - we get close to people we shouldn't. I have to police myself in regards to that. It's people here in Brasília, of the three powers, that don't know what's the people. I talk to a few, don't know what's rice and beans, don't know what's a supermarket. Forgot. Think that money falls from the sky. "I have my guaranteed privileges, my 100k per month" on average, 100k per month they earn, right? Legally. And think this will never end. Like some think the liberty "What's the deal with that guy, is he crazy?" I see the oldest one here, General Heleno here. He knows what is six, what was sixty four. Many of the ones here don't know. The people that tried to get into power in sixty four, if they had arrived, we were all fucked here. Cutting ... super happy if we were cutting sugarcane earning twenty USD per month. Can't forget that Note: reference to how it is claimed that the military did the coup in 64 to prevent a socialist revolution Bolsonaro: We can't forget who this people is. I'll invite the ministers to go on Sunday visit Ceilândia and Taguatinga. (Two local neighbourhoods). It's an invitation, not a ... not a mission no. Invitation. To see how the guy in the corner is doing. So that some piece of shit comes up and says, right? Same pieces of shit as always "Ah but the guy broke isolation. You're giving a terrible example" Ok ... Bad example is my dick, fuck! Worst is to starve! You're in shit, fuck! Feel how the people smell, like I said, there. It's an experience for every politician to feel! Go there and see how it is. Or there's people that is, like it was, right, huh? A general in the rear letting the troops get fucked in front. No! The General is, is in the front, the colonel is in the front, the captain is in the front. Our heroes of WW2 had ahead of them a battlefield. If it was needed, I'm sure, our armed forces will do their job, but, right? We have to give an example and show what Brazil isn't - I'm less rude than Weintraub, improved a lot, right? In the language he used - but that's not what people say around. Meeting around midnight, here and there. Informations systems, mine works. Bolsonaro: My particular one works. The ofi ... which have officially, misinform. And back to the theme, I prefer not to have information than to be misinformed by the system of informations that I have. So, people, many will be able to leave Brazil, but I don't want to leave and see my sister form Eldorado, another from Cajati, my poor brother Army captain from ... from ... from ... from Miracatu getting fucked, fuck! It's being pursued all day long! And then the shit Folha de São Paulo, says my brother was kicked from a slaughterhouse, buying meat without a mask. Proved in writing, he was in São Paulo that day. The owner of ... of restaurant of ... of ... of ... of the slaughterhouse said he wasn't there. And that's it. I know it's his problem, right? But the bullshit is the whole time to hit me, messing with my family. I already tried to change the staff of our security in Rio, officially, and wasn't able to! And this ended. I'm not going to wait to fuck my entire family, of bullshit, or friends of mine, because I couldn't switch someone from our frontline security in our structure. It'll switch! If I can't switch, I'll switch his boss! Can't switch his boss? Switch the minister! Full stop! We're not joking here (note): the minister and one of the bosses mentioned here are Ramagem and Moro Bolsonaro: And then some kid shows up, with - all due respect - the one from BNDES, ok? I met him when he wore shorts, and ... Fuck, he came from the United States over here, could very well be there. Came here to try to change Brazil invited by Paulo Guedes, who is a friend of his parents. Coincidence, isn't it Paulo Guedes? Bolsonaro: I don't think so. .. I don't remember your parents, I remember you, fuck! All right? But it's someone I'm investing here. And all of those have to think about this. What these sons of bitches want, huh Weintraub, is our freedom. Look, how it is, how easy it is to impose a dictatorship in Brazil. How easy it is. Everybody is home. This is why I want, the Justice and Defense Ministries, let the people be armed! It's the guarantee that some son of a bitch won't show up to impose a dictatorship here! How easy it is to impose a dictatorship! Ridiculously easy! Some bullshit mayor makes some bullshit decree, handcuffs, keeps everybody home. If they were armed, they would go to the street. If I was dictator, right? I'd want to disarm the population, like they did in the past when they wanted, before imposed their respective dictatorship. Then, what's our demonstration, I ask Fernando (Minister of Defense) and Moro that please, sign in the Executive Order today and I want to give a bitch of a note to these pieces of shit! Because why am I arming the people? Because I don't want a dictatorship! There's no way to hold back! Right? No way to hold back. Yeah, who won't accept my flags Damares: "family, God, Brazil, guns, freedom of speech, free market". Who won't accept this is in the wrong government. Wait until twenty two, right? Your Álvaro Dias. Wait for Alckmin. Wait for Haddad. Or maybe Lula, right? Go be happy with them, fuck? In my government it's wrong! It's make the armament question obvious here. I want everybody armed! The armed people will never be enslaved. And that each one does, does your job. Expose yourself. Here I already said: you'll lose the ministry if you get spoken positively by Folha or by Globo! By Antagonista! Right? So there are some blogs there that only have good news from the ministers. No idea how! The president ... takes a beating, but the minister is congratulated. And then we see around. "Ah, the government is, the ... the ministry is doing well, although the president." Go fuck yourself, fuck! I picked the team, fuck! We switched five. Hope I won't have to switch anybody else! I hope! But we have to, in Weintraub's line, in a more gentle way, right? It's ... caring about this. What the guys want is our hemorrhoid! It's out liberty! This is a truth. What these guys did with the virus, this piece of shit governor of São Paulo (João Dória), this shit from Rio de Janeiro (Wilson Witzel), amongst others is exactly that. Made use of the virus, there's a piece of shit mayor in Manaus now, opening mass graves. A piece of shit. Who doesn't know his history, try to learn, which I met inside the House, with him next to me! Right? And we know the ... his ideology and what he preaches. And what he always was. It's what ... he's making use now, of a climate like this, to bring terror to Brazil. Right? So people, please, care about was important with everybody's life, what is your liberty. An arrested man is worth shit. (note: the mayor of Manaus, Artur Virgílio Neto is the son of Artur Virgílio, a Congressman who was exiled and stripped of his position after the military shutdown the Congress under accusations of being communist) Braga Netto introduces Paulo Guedes Guedes begins by presenting a more moderate stance. Saying that although they are breaking of from the establishment, they need to work together to pass the reforms. He then mentions a conversation that he had with the G20 Ministers of Economy and the BRICS. Also mentions the pension reform and how it passed in contrast to France. "Now, the same thing, I've been saying: we are deepening the reforms, we are continuing, we are following". Followed up by saying how he doesn't believe in dogmas, how Brazil was heading in a strong direction, but suddenly crashed. Brazil was one of the first countries to prepare to alleviate the crisis financially, and in his opinion, it's only worse than the United States because Powell and the Fed put out money to help keep markets afloat. Also of note is that part of the economic recovery plan involves unconventional methods, like allowing taxes to be paid later while moving forward government benefit payouts, as they were limited by the constitution. It's been planned to cost around three hundred and something billion, last deficit under Temer was around one hundred sixty. These plans reach seventy million Brazilians. "We made a banking committee, we are there with Montezano now doing exactly the restructuring. There won't be easy work for airlines, none of this. We are putting in money, and it's going to work using the best financial technology available. We are putting in money, and it's going to work and we are going to turn a profit. We are going to turn a profit using public resources to save large companies. Now, we are going to lose money saving small companies. Guedes insists the necessity to continue with the reforms mid pandemic, using the bailouts to reform the economy. "A Marshall Plan per year". Insists on lowering interest rates, and blocking government raises for two years. In his own words, you can't impeach if you're going by the book. "And the president is in the future, because the president said the following: ok, there's the first wave, which is health, but there's the second one that's the economy, and one follows the other. We are still trying to leave the first ... and the second is trying to arrive. I still think we are preserving the vitals of the Brazilian economy". He mentions how the economy will likely be held by the expected large soy production and new logistic projects. A mention of China is also present, as for every USD exported to the US, Brazil exports three to China. Mourão and Guedes talk about this, but it is redacted. In Guedes' words, "We are going to sell our soy to them This we can sell as much as we want. They have to eat, they have to eat. India also needs to eat, they'll need water. They'll say it's the best water trade. Strangely, it's also suggested to have a mobilization of the Young Apprentices Program working with the military, as they could be paid with government spending. He criticizes Damares for being against casinos, mentioning Macau. In his own words "the president speaks about liberty. Let everybody get fucked the way they wan't. Especially if he's overage, vaccinated, and a billionaire. Let him get fucked, fuck!" Also mentioned is a meeting with the US Ambassador, who says there is a few hundred billion dollars earmarked for investments in Brazil, but dependent on a good business environment. "Simplified taxation, juridical safety". He also recommends signing the General Purchase Agreement, and joining into the OECD to allow for more government transparency, allowing for improved trade. Bolsonaro then says he has Trump's support. Guedes disagrees "we can't lose the opportunity of having the president being this friendly with Trump". Tereza Cristina (Agriculture) speaks briefly about how countries are shifting to have government stocks of food post COVID. Currently Brazil is not self sufficient in wheat production, most of it is imported from neighbouring Argentina. Of course, funding is an issue, but there is two million acres set aside in the Matopiba region ready to invest in. 9% interest rates are an issue according to her. Bolsonaro asks if the Banco do Brasil (another one of Brazilian Government Banks) can help Guedes intervenes "Banco do Brasil is neither an armadillo or a snake. It's neither private or public. If you pressure Rubem (head of the bank), poor him. He's super liberal, but if you pressure him and he says "lower the rates", he goes "I can't or else the team, the private, my minoritaires, pressure me". Then if you say "put interest rates high", he goes "I can't or else the government pressures me". Banco do Brasil is a ready case to privatize. It's a ready case and we aren't doing this step. Have you sir noticed that the BNDE and the ... the ... the Caixa which are our, public, we do what we want. Banco de Brasil we can't do anything and we have a liberal there. So we need to sell this shit fast. Bolsonaro makes a quip about Rubem not being invited to the next meeting. Rubem explains how even in the changing situation Banco do Brasil has expanded loans, and the bank doesn't have liquidity issues. At the same time, the bank handles the payments for public companies and the military, which are more stable than private companies. Guedes makes a joke about him to "confess his dream". In Rubem's own words "In regard to privatizing, it's clear that with BNDES taking care of development and Caixa with the social needs, Banco do Brasil would be ready for a privatization program, right?" It is then highlighted that Banco do Brasil has some clear advantages, which would have to be sorted out by the public status. Judicial deposits and government payments would usually be handled by either Banco do Brasil or Caixa, now it's a public competition. The bank is no longer competitive in these sectors. "Then you only keep the bad sides of being a government company. We don't have the same ease in hiring, we don't have the same ease in firing bad employees and ... and ... and ... so forth". He follows with a few closing statements, about how he has to present all documents to the government comptrollers, and Covid perspectives. Braga Netto closes off the meeting. A few takeaways While the meeting was to debate the Pró-Brasil recovery plan, it ended up being more focused on Bolsonaro's gripes with his ministers. Bolsonaro has strengthened himself in this, as it shows he's still going strong in his position. This is both in the campaign promises and the way he has been underplaying Covid. What he says in the video is suspect, but is nothing that can be used as clearcut evidence in an impeachment trial. The Supreme Court has also subpoenaed his phone, but still has not reported on anything. Moro is likely the biggest loser in this. While there is evidence Bolsonaro changed command of the Federal Police for political reasons, there is still a degree of reasonable doubt. This meeting was not the silver bullet he expected. Within the Brazilian right wing, he's now seen as a traitor to a degree. Populism is a hell of a drug. Salles is one of the losers. Supporting the using the Covid news cycle to roll back environmental regulations is not a good look, especially when you're the first one to talk. There is now a movement to impeach him. Damares is another loser with this. Threatening to arrest governors due to human right violations was a bad move. Luckily, her ministry has little to no legal strength, and thus, is mostly an empty threat. Guedes on the other hand, has returned confidence to investors. While Brazil may have no clear plan to deal with Covid medically, it has a plan to deal with it economically. At the same time, there's the favorite word of a Brazilian investors - privatizing. The BOVESPA index has shot up from around 82000 points on Friday to 85400 by Tuesday's close. Weintraub now has a bad look. From having to deal with a racism case, he know is having to explain his threats against the Supreme Court. Outside of Bolsonaro's circle there is now pressure for him to resign or be sacked. Another loser, out from left field has been Bolsonaro's head of security, General Heleno. After reading the news of Bolsonaro's phone subpoena, he has stated there will be "severe implications for Brazil's democratic institutions" if Bolsonaro's phone is analyzed. Many have considered this to be an overt coup threat. He is now facing possible impeachment. Teich, which resigned after the meeting has gone through relatively unscathed. With a simple, stump speech on how Brazil can only leave the distancing after it has the virus under control and how testing must be expanded. Of note is mentioning how a plan to ease restrictions is being created. Given how there has been an expanded focus on creating medical capacity instead of waiting for the virus, it is likely that restrictions would be modified to a looser system, closer to that of Sweden.
A few days ago, I posted my London street circuit which was the first street circuit I made in Google Earth. Now I'm ready to show you some others. The way I design my street circuits is also explained in that post. These tracks are very much designed to be video game street circuits and not ones for real life racing. *US\* Boston - 2.60 miles (4.19km) - This is probably the most reasonably lengthed circuit of the whole bunch. Boston is also the most "Un-American" urban city in the US in terms of layout as it abandons the typical grid layout, which allows for easier street circuit design. Chicago - 5.10 miles (8.19km) - At 5 miles long, this is the second longest US circuit I made. Don't let this statistic intimidate you because this track is FAST. This track is all about speed with its long straights, broken by tight city corners. Las Vegas - 6.00 miles (9.66km) - Reaching exactly 6 miles, this is the longest US circuit (and second longest circuit overall) in this post. Just like Chicago though, this track is all about speed. It's even faster than Chicago, blazing through long straights amongst the casino buildings. Even better driving it at night with lights everywhere. Los Angeles - 3.02 miles (4.86km) - I actually had to turn 3D Buildings off so you'd be able to see everything. This track is much more technical than the previous two, where the occasional straights are broken by a series of tricky city corners traveling across the highway outskirts. Miami - 4.10 miles (6.58km) - This is a fast city track, with a fair few long straights and a highway stretch. It's much more about speed in the first half, then becoming more technical in the second half. New York - 3.75 miles (6.04km) - Ah, New York. This layout should be familiar to anyone who's played GT4 or any of the old Forza Motorsport games. It blazes through Times Square, and lands on the highway-like roads of Central Park, providing a fast but tricky section of corners. Philadelphia - 3.53 miles (5.68km) - Probably my least favorite of the US circuits (and of the whole post), this track is very angular with several sharp turns, and drives through a tunnel beneath the convention center. *ELSEWHERE\* London - 4.12 miles (6.64km) - This was the track I posted a few days ago. The track starts off by driving around the roundabout at Buckingham Palace. In fact, the entire track utilizes several different roundabouts. Paris - 3.12 (5.02km) - A mostly fast street circuit, characterized by several angular turns of varying intensities. You even get a decent view of the Eiffel Tower driving across the second bridge. Rio de Janeiro - 4.56 miles (7.35km) - This circuit is characterized with a LOT of elevation change. The circuit has you climbing up a hill covered with urban buildings, only to go back down through a series of tight, narrow switchback hairpins. And also once again, high speed! Tokyo - 8.59 miles (13.82km) - This is the longest track in this post, and one of my personal favorites of the bunch. Its long length comes from using a very notable piece of Japanese highways as the basis of the track. Perhaps it will be familiar to some of you?

A Random Fact you (Probably) Didn't Know About Each Playable Hero
Tracer's abilities are not inherent. A common mistake made by many Overwatch Fan-Fiction writers is that Tracer naturally has her abilities. This is not the case. Tracer's abilities result from a teleportation accident that left her desynchronized from the flow of time, causing her to fade in and out of existence. Winston devised a chronal accelerator (the device you see on her chest in her default skin) to keep her anchored to the present, it's this device that gives Tracer her powers.
Symmetra is autistic. I don't blame you if you didn't know this one, because it kind of caught me by surprise too. Symmetra is on the autism spectrum, this is alluded to in her comic "A Better World."
The Tattoo under Pharah's eye is a symbol of protection. You may have noticed the "eye of horus" tattoo underneath Pharah's right eye. In her comic "Mission Statement," it is revealed that Pharah got the tattoo because her mother Ana wore a similar tattoo under her left eye and Pharah believed it to be a symbol of protection. In that same comic, she learned that it is actually to help her protect the ones she loves.
Hanzo was the one who injured Genji. Hanzo was the one who originally gave Genji the injuries that ultimately resulted in Genji becoming a cyborg. Hanzo would later be consumed by this guilt and leave the Shimada Clan, only returning home once every year to honor Genji. (even though Genji was still alive [yes, Hanzo thought he killed Genji])
Reaper was in the Soldier Enhancement Program alongside Soldier; 76. Going by the callsign "Soldier; 24," Reaper, or Gabriel Reyes as he was known then, was in the Soldier Enhancement Program alongside Soldier; 76, or Jack Morrison, and they were both the American representatives on the original Overwatch strike team. Even though Reyes was Morrison's superior, he was passed up for commanding Overwatch in favor of Morrison. This is the root of their divide that would ultimately result in the downfall of Overwatch.
Winston is from the moon. Winston was one of the animal subjects kept on the Horizon Lunar Colony to study the long-term effects of low gravity on humans. He was a particular favorite of the scientist Harold Winston, which is where Winston gets his name. Dr. Winston and all the other scientists on the colony were killed when the other animals, mostly gorillas, got tired of being subject to genetic experiments and revolted. Winston didn't partake in the revolution and escaped to Earth, not suspecting his friend Hammond was in tow.
Torbjorn lost his arm during a mission. Torbjorn lost his arm in an Overwatch mission code-named "white dome." The mission's purpose was to eliminate a small pocket of Omnic resistance in Istanbul that had been giving conventional troops some trouble. The mission went sideways and Torbjorn was severely injured, loosing his left arm. Reinhardt saved Torbjorn, and in exchange, Torbjorn let Reinhardt be the godfather of and name Torbjorns unborn daughter, whom Reinhardt named "Brigitte."
Bastion's bird has a name. You know that cute bird that hangs around with Bastion? It actually has a name, it's called "Ganymede." I'm not certain where that name comes from, but it was building a nest on Bastion's shoulder when Bastion mysteriously came back online.
Mercy is basically immune to aging. Yeah, this is another one that caught me by surprise, too. In Ana's origin story trailer, you can see Mercy hanging out over Torbjorn's shoulder. Yet in the game, she doesn't look like she's aged a day. This is because Mercy's Valkyrie suit is one of the most medically advanced pieces of technology in the world. It can cure most illnesses, heal most injuries, and can even delay the aging process. Mind blown.
Widowmaker used to be a ballet dancer. Before she became Widowmaker, everyone's favorite sniper in Overwatch was known as Amelie Lacroix. She used to be a ballet dancer married to the Overwatch agent Gerard Lacroix. Talon, the main antagonists of Overwatch's story, tried several times to kill Gerard, but failed. They then brainwashed Amelie to get her close to Gerard, who then killed him in her sleep. After Talon reacquired her, they then completed the brainwashing and subjected her to multiple genetic experiments, turning her into the blue, cold-blooded killer she is now.
Zenyatta believes the Omnics have souls. Ever wondered why Zenyatta looks like a Buddhist Monk? That's actually because he's part of a religious sect of Omnics that believe that the Omnics have souls. (who knew robots could be religious?) He disagreed with his order's ways of spreading this belief through dogmatic teaching, and believed the way to heal the wounds of the Omnic Crisis was through interpersonal connection and engagement. He ultimately left the order over this disagreement, hence his voiceline on Nepal; "I wonder if I am still welcome here."
Reinhardt wasn't originally supposed to be on the Overwatch team. Believe it or not, Reinhardt wasn't supposed to be the German representative on the original Overwatch strike team. That honor would've gone to Reinhardt's commanding officer, Commander Baldrich. Before Baldrich's death at the battle of Eichenwald, he named Reinhardt to be his replacement, which is how Reinhardt got onto the strike team.
Zarya used to be a professional weightlifter. Zarya was a professional weightlifter in Russia after the end of the Omnic Crisis. When the second Crisis started in Siberia, and Zarya's home town threatened, she gave up her career to fight on the frontlines.
Junkrat found something inside the Australian Omnium. Junkrat claims to have found something inside the ruins of the Australian Omnium. What exactly it is, no one knows, and it's implied in his bio on the Overwatch website that it's not even a physical item, stating only that it's some "secret."
Soldier; 76 is the target of a manhunt. After Overwatch's downfall and his supposed "death," Jack Morrison, now going by his old callsign of Soldier; 76, began raiding old Overwatch storage depots to find out why the organization collapsed, which is how he got his Pulse Rifle, biotic field generator, and tactical visor. He was seen on one of the security cameras, making him the number one most wanted man in the world.
Roadhog blew up of the Australian Omnium. Roadhog used to be part of Australian Liberation Front, a group of people that were angry with Australian government's handling of Omnic relations. The war between the ALF and Omnics continued to escalate until the ALF blew up the Omnium in the Australian outback, which was the Omnic's main city in Australia. It's unclear if Roadhog was on the mission that blew up the Omnium. (though personally, I don't think he was, as given the method they used was to blow up the Omnium's fusion reactor, any such attempt would've been a suicide mission)
McCree used to be a criminal. McCree was part of the Deadlock Gang, a small group of Bandits that would raid all over the American southwest. McCree was arrested in a sting operation by Overwatch's black-ops division, Blackwatch. Gabriel Reyes then gave McCree a choice; join Blackwatch or rot in prison. As you might've guessed, McCree chose the former option.
Lucio's father worked for Vishkar. Lucio's father worked for the Vishkar corporation, which is the same corporation Symmetra works for, and he developed Vishkar's sonic amplification technology as well as it's hard light technology. Lucio would steal the former and use it to kick Vishkar out of Rio de Janeiro.
D.Va was a professional gamer. D.Va was a professional gamer with a particular affinity for Starcraft. When the Gwishin Omnic began adapting to the Korean military and threatened Busan, D.Va was one of five pilots recruited to the MEKA program to stop it, where her quick reflexes and advanced tactical thinking could swing fights in the team's favor, the other four being other notable professional gamers such as King, Casino, Overlord, and D.Mon. (who was on the same team as D.Va at one point, hence their similar handles)
Mei cryogenically froze herself. Mei used to be a climatologist who worked for Overwatch before the organization's collapse, and was stationed at a climate monitoring station called Ecopoint; Antarctica. A large storm struck the area just before the base was about to receive a critical resupply, and it was decided that the team would cryogenically freeze themselves until a rescue mission could be mounted. That mission never came, and all of the cryopods failed one by one until only Mei was left. Mei's cryopod revived her after nearly ten years, and after realizing what had happened in the intervening time and that the rest of her team was dead, escaped the facility on foot.
Genji's cybernetic body was built by Mercy. After Genji's battle with Hanzo left him near-dead, he was saved by Mercy. At the time, Mercy hadn't perfected the technology that allowed her to heal and resurrect people, not that it would've helped much anyway. So instead, Overwatch offered to build him a cybernetic replacement, and in exchange, Genji would help Overwatch dismantle the Shimada clan's criminal operations. Genji agreed to this deal, and over the course of his service to Blackwatch, he and Mercy would become close friends.
Ana's weapon runs on the same technology that powers Mercy's staff. Ana's biotic rifle uses the same kind of nanites that Mercy's staff emits whenever she heals or damage buffs someone. However, Ana's rifle was created against Mercy's wishes.
Sombra's real name. It was revealed in the Zarya-centric comic "searching" that Zarya knows Sombra's real name; Olivia Colomar. It's unknown how Zarya knows that name, but from Sombra's reaction, it's pretty obvious that Sombra made sure that it would be impossible to find out her real name.
Orisa used to be a security bot at the Numbani airport. Orisa was an OR-15 defense bot that was charged with defending the city of Numbani. She was heavily damaged when Doomfist attacked Numbani's airport, only to be restored by the child genius, Efi Oladele.
Doomfist's arm is cybernetic. Underneath Doomfist's gauntlet is a prosthetic arm. Doomfist lost his original arm in a match when he was a professional fighter. Although he was wealthy enough to afford a prosthetic, the incident effectively put an end to his fighting career.
Moira devised the genetic augmentations that turned Gabriel Reyes into Reaper. It's heavily implied in Moira's origin story trailer and the Retribution event that Moira gave Gabriel Reyes the genetic augmentations that turned him into Reaper. Whether the use of these abilities, the mixture with the Soldier Enhancement cocktail already in Reyes's system, or some third component turned him into Reaper is unknown.
Brigitte is a very capable engineer. Just like her father Torbjorn, Brigitte is a very capable engineer. Unlike Torbjorn however, who favors building offensive weaponry, Brigitte has shown an affinity for shields and armor. (okay, me saying that makes me want Brigitte as an Engineer in Elite Dangerous now)

As such, tourism is a product of modern social arrangements, beginning in western Europe in the 17th century, although it has antecedents in Classical antiquity. It is distinguished from exploration in that tourists follow a “beaten path,” benefit from established systems of provision, and, as befits pleasure-seekers, are generally insulated from difficulty, danger, and embarrassment. Tourism, however, overlaps with other activities, interests, and processes, including, for example, pilgrimage. This gives rise to shared categories, such as “business tourism,” “sports tourism,” and “medical tourism” (international travel undertaken for the purpose of receiving medical care).
The Origins Of Tourism
By the early 21st century, international tourism had become one of the world’s most important economic activities, and its impact was becoming increasingly apparent from the Arctic to Antarctica. The history of tourism is therefore of great interest and importance. That history begins long before the coinage of the word tourist at the end of the 18th century. In the Western tradition, organized travel with supporting infrastructure, sightseeing, and an emphasis on essential destinations and experiences can be found in ancient Greece and Rome, which can lay claim to the origins of both “heritage tourism” (aimed at the celebration and appreciation of historic sites of recognized cultural importance) and beach resorts. The Seven Wonders of the World became tourist sites for Greeks and Romans. Pilgrimage offers similar antecedents, bringing Eastern civilizations into play. Its religious goals coexist with defined routes, commercial hospitality, and an admixture of curiosity, adventure, and enjoyment among the motives of the participants. Pilgrimage to the earliest Buddhist sites began more than 2,000 years ago, although it is hard to define a transition from the makeshift privations of small groups of monks to recognizably tourist practices. Pilgrimage to Mecca is of similar antiquity. The tourist status of the hajj is problematic given the number of casualties that—even in the 21st century—continued to be suffered on the journey through the desert. The thermal spa as a tourist destination—regardless of the pilgrimage associations with the site as a holy well or sacred spring—is not necessarily a European invention, despite deriving its English-language label from Spa, an early resort in what is now Belgium. The oldest Japanese onsen (hot springs) were catering to bathers from at least the 6th century. Tourism has been a global phenomenon from its origins. Modern tourism is an increasingly intensive, commercially organized, business-oriented set of activities whose roots can be found in the industrial and postindustrial West. The aristocratic grand tour of cultural sites in France, Germany, and especially Italy—including those associated with Classical Roman tourism—had its roots in the 16th century. It grew rapidly, however, expanding its geographical range to embrace Alpine scenery during the second half of the 18th century, in the intervals between European wars. (If truth is historically the first casualty of war, tourism is the second, although it may subsequently incorporate pilgrimages to graves and battlefield sites and even, by the late 20th century, to concentration camps.) As part of the grand tour’s expansion, its exclusivity was undermined as the expanding commercial, professional, and industrial middle ranks joined the landowning and political classes in aspiring to gain access to this rite of passage for their sons. By the early 19th century, European journeys for health, leisure, and culture became common practice among the middle classes, and paths to the acquisition of cultural capital (that array of knowledge, experience, and polish that was necessary to mix in polite society) were smoothed by guidebooks, primers, the development of art and souvenir markets, and carefully calibrated transport and accommodation systems.
Technology And The Democratization Of International Tourism
Transport innovation was an essential enabler of tourism’s spread and democratization and its ultimate globalization. Beginning in the mid-19th century, the steamship and the railway brought greater comfort and speed and cheaper travel, in part because fewer overnight and intermediate stops were needed. Above all else, these innovations allowed for reliable time-tabling, essential for those who were tied to the discipline of the calendar if not the clock. The gaps in accessibility to these transport systems were steadily closing in the later 19th century, while the empire of steam was becoming global. Railways promoted domestic as well as international tourism, including short visits to the coast, city, and countryside which might last less than a day but fell clearly into the “tourism” category. Rail travel also made grand tour destinations more widely accessible, reinforcing existing tourism flows while contributing to tensions and clashes between classes and cultures among the tourists. By the late 19th century, steam navigation and railways were opening tourist destinations from Lapland to New Zealand, and the latter opened the first dedicated national tourist office in 1901. After World War II, governments became interested in tourism as an invisible import and as a tool of diplomacy, but prior to this time international travel agencies took the lead in easing the complexities of tourist journeys. The most famous of these agencies was Britain’s Thomas Cook and Son organization, whose operations spread from Europe and the Middle East across the globe in the late 19th century. The role played by other firms (including the British tour organizers Frame’s and Henry Gaze and Sons) has been less visible to 21st-century observers, not least because these agencies did not preserve their records, but they were equally important. Shipping lines also promoted international tourism from the late 19th century onward. From the Norwegian fjords to the Caribbean, the pleasure cruise was already becoming a distinctive tourist experience before World War I, and transatlantic companies competed for middle-class tourism during the 1920s and ’30s. Between the World Wars, affluent Americans journeyed by air and sea to a variety of destinations in the Caribbean and Latin America. Tourism became even bigger business internationally in the latter half of the 20th century as air travel was progressively deregulated and decoupled from “flag carriers” (national airlines). The airborne package tour to sunny coastal destinations became the basis of an enormous annual migration from northern Europe to the Mediterranean before extending to a growing variety of long-haul destinations, including Asian markets in the Pacific, and eventually bringing postcommunist Russians and eastern Europeans to the Mediterranean. Similar traffic flows expanded from the United States to Mexico and the Caribbean. In each case these developments built on older rail-, road-, and sea-travel patterns. The earliest package tours to the Mediterranean were by motor coach (bus) during the 1930s and postwar years. It was not until the late 1970s that Mediterranean sun and sea vacations became popular among working-class families in northern Europe; the label “mass tourism,” which is often applied to this phenomenon, is misleading. Such holidays were experienced in a variety of ways because tourists had choices, and the destination resorts varied widely in history, culture, architecture, and visitor mix. From the 1990s the growth of flexible international travel through the rise of budget airlines, notably easyJet and Ryanair in Europe, opened a new mix of destinations. Some of these were former Soviet-bloc locales such as Prague and Riga, which appealed to weekend and short-break European tourists who constructed their own itineraries in negotiation with local service providers, mediated through the airlines’ special deals. In international tourism, globalization has not been a one-way process; it has entailed negotiation between hosts and guests. Day-Trippers And Domestic Tourism While domestic tourism could be seen as less glamorous and dramatic than international traffic flows, it has been more important to more people over a longer period. From the 1920s the rise of Florida as a destination for American tourists has been characterized by “snowbirds” from the northern and Midwestern states traveling a greater distance across the vast expanse of the United States than many European tourists travel internationally. Key phases in the pioneering development of tourism as a commercial phenomenon in Britain were driven by domestic demand and local journeys. European wars in the late 18th and early 19th centuries prompted the “discovery of Britain” and the rise of the Lake District and Scottish Highlands as destinations for both the upper classes and the aspiring classes. The railways helped to open the seaside to working-class day-trippers and holidaymakers, especially in the last quarter of the 19th century. By 1914 Blackpool in Lancashire, the world’s first working-class seaside resort, had around four million visitors per summer. Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York, had more visitors by this time, but most were day-trippers who came from and returned to locations elsewhere in the New York City area by train the same day. Domestic tourism is less visible in statistical terms and tends to be serviced by regional, local, and small family-run enterprises. The World Tourism Organization, which tries to count tourists globally, is more concerned with the international scene, but across the globe, and perhaps especially in Asia, domestic tourism remains much more important in numerical terms than the international version.
A Case Study: The Beach Holiday
Much of the post-World War II expansion of international tourism was based on beach holidays, which have a long history. In their modern, commercial form, beach holidays are an English invention of the 18th century, based on the medical adaptation of popular sea-bathing traditions. They built upon the positive artistic and cultural associations of coastal scenery for societies in the West, appealing to the informality and habits and customs of maritime society. Later beach holiday destinations incorporated the sociability and entertainment regimes of established spa resorts, sometimes including gambling casinos. Beach holidays built on widespread older uses of the beach for health, enjoyment, and religious rites, but it was the British who formalized and commercialized them. From the late 18th and early 19th centuries, beach resorts spread successively across Europe and the Mediterranean and into the United States, then took root in the European-settled colonies and republics of Oceania, South Africa, and Latin America and eventually reached Asia. Beach holiday environments, regulations, practices, and fashions mutated across cultures as sunshine and relaxation displaced therapy and convention. Coastal resorts became sites of conflict over access and use as well as over concepts of decency and excess. Beaches could be, in acceptably exciting ways, liminal frontier zones where the usual conventions could be suspended. (Not just in Rio de Janeiro have beaches become carnivalesque spaces where the world has been temporarily turned upside down.) Coastal resorts could also be dangerous and challenging. They could become arenas for class conflict, starting with the working-class presence at the 19th-century British seaside, where it took time for day-trippers from industrial towns to learn to moderate noisy, boisterous behaviour and abandon nude bathing. Beaches were also a prime location for working out economic, ethnic, “racial,” or religious tensions, such as in Mexico, where government-sponsored beach resort developments from the 1970s displaced existing farming communities. In South Africa the apartheid regime segregated the beaches, and in the Islamic world locals sustained their own bathing traditions away from the tourist beaches. The beach is only the most conspicuous of many distinctive settings to attract a tourist presence and generate a tourism industry, but its history illustrates many general points about tradition, diffusion, mutation, and conflict. Tourism has also made use of history, as historic sites attract cultural tourists and collectors of iconic images. Indigenous peoples can sometimes profit from the marketability of their customs, and even the industrial archaeology of tourism itself is becoming good business, with historically significant hotels, transport systems, and even amusement park rides becoming popular destinations. Heritage and authenticity are among the many challenging and compromised attributes that tourism uses to market the intangible wares that it appropriates. The global footprint of tourism—its economic, environmental, demographic, and cultural significance—was already huge at the beginning of the 20th century and continues to grow exponentially. As the body of literature examining this important industry continues to expand, historical perspectives will develop further. Source: https://www.britannica.com/topic/tourism
