That was pretty surprising. I thought that ahri mains would be the ones who were most likely to splurge. I feel like they cycle through every ahri skin option in champ select.

Explaining Ahri to a reporter is harder than just saying samurai assassin.

one of my math professors in college who I had a huge crush on is apparently now a data scientist upon google stalking. when i told him i was taking actuarial exams, his eyes lit up and he said he wanted to do that too. i guess it wasn't sexy enough for him and he went the data scientist route. he hated being a professor.

Misread title. Today my eyes saw it as "Uneasy actuaries . . ."

Significant number isn’t far reaching. What do you consider as significant? At least 500 making $500k? Than I would say easily. Think about all the consulting shop partners, Chief actuaries, heck even SVP or VP at larger companies make that with base, bonus and long-term comp. Put yourself into leadership at a high enough level where your decisions have major impacts on profit or loss and you’ll get there. Or align yourself with producing business, e.g., rainmakers and $500k is so far in the rear view mirror, you can’t even see it.
