Why aren't there any RPGs just set in the modern world?

2022.01.28 22:34 NoLeafClover777 Why aren't there any RPGs just set in the modern world?

It feels to me as though games companies have become so pigeonholed into automatically correlating RPG = medieval, post-apocalyptic, or sci-fi futuristic world, that none of them even consider making a game just set in our current world.
As in, on actual Earth, with our actual constraints of physics, and actual real-world drama.
We have countless TV shows and movies set in the real world; why not RPGs? There's still the same room for decision-making, stat points & levelling up, fighting bad guys, epic conversations without needing dragons, magic or aliens as a crutch to make them more "interesting".
You can even have "classes" in real life; I mean we have soldiers, medics, conversation specialists, craftsmen/tradesmen, engineers right here on Earth, right?
The closest thing would probably be Disco Elysium or Alpha Protocol, but even those use made-up worlds or geopolitical situations/fake countries instead.
Can a guy just get some cool, realistic roleplaying adventures here on Earth, please?

Liz is insufferable. Stephanie is one of my least favorite (and that says a lot) but she and Ed’s friend were 100% correct on Liz. Attention hungry, desperate, selfish.. and the whole “someone else sent Liz those texts” storyline is so BS. Are we really accepting this from TLC? Ed and Liz may actually be soulmates- two narcissists in a relationship. Just wow. Even the farting story and fake laughing/crying is eww

2022.01.28 22:34 mutedcoral Urgent: Have to take abbreviated adult driver course to retake drivers exam. Am I *required* to present the physical certificate, mailed from the online driving school, before I can take the exam?

Asking on behalf of my husband who failed his drivers exam last week. We have not received the physical certificate in the mail yet and his exam is tomorrow. He absolutely has to drive for work and there are no appointments available at any nearby BMV exam center this month.
Any chance we can just print the certificate ourselves?! If not, this seems like an absolutely ridiculous barrier.
TIA. Any advice is very much appreciated.

2022.01.28 22:34 QMAN4000 [CR Media] I really liked this small animation sequence from the animated series

TL;DR - I like the animations for Percys gun

As a bit of a gun nerd I always wondered how Percy reloading his Pepperbox so quick in combat was suppose to look so to see him take out and use that speed loader was quite interesting. I can't wait to see the animation for Bad News.

2022.01.28 22:34 candlecrusher History of MMA Events Excel Sheet

TL;DR: What are the major MMA events, with English commentary? So far I have UFC, Strikeforce, WSOF/PFL, Bellator, and WEC.
My offerings:
All encompassing MMA Event Spreadsheet: https://www.dropbox.com/s/1lwbbva1cl7jkun/MMA%20events.xlsx?dl=0
English Commentary Spreadsheet: https://www.dropbox.com/s/60ph90cint2u52q/MMA%20events%20-%20My%20List.xlsb.xlsx?dl=0
A while ago I decided that I wanted to get into MMA by watching every UFC event since it began and then that turned into me wanting to see every major MMA event.
I decided to make a sortable/filterable spreadsheet tracking each major MMA event but had no clue where to start and this subreddit was awesome and pointed me in all the right directions.
Here's the spreadsheet for anyone interested. It should automatically update, just make sure you click "enable content" or whatever it says up top.
I'm officially addicted, and now want to watch all MMA events that have english commentary. So far I have UFC, Strikeforce, WSOF/PFL, Bellator, and WEC on the list and I was wondering if some of you guys could tell me if I'm missing anything big.
Here's the spreadsheet that I use. It's all english commentary and, aside from Bellator, is on fightpass.
Feel free to tell me any non english events that should be added to the big list, too.
Thanks for the help!

2022.01.28 22:34 qwaszx356 Eli5, How does nuclear fusion create energy?

It's the wonderchild of nuclear physics, but how does adding two things to make one thing create energy? Fission makes sense, splitting atoms and creating entropy and releasing stored energy into the world, but fission is the opposite.
