If you don’t like the country leave
Don’t sit behind a ****ing screen just waiting for **** to get better
Go out. Educate.
Stop sitting and blogging your hatred
Your blog won’t stop the hatred
Your blog won’t change the ****ing world
Get the **** up, go the **** out, and be the ****ing change you want to see.
Buried and betrayed
Lies the memories of my past
I look up to the heaven
Where the lord resides
And writes the destiny for all of us,
the less fortunate ones.
With questioning eyes I ask WHY ME???
But I stand strong on my feet
Each and every time I pray
Guided by an invisible force
Helping me to live my life as it comes
I don’t know how
And I don’t know why…
There are some people who want me to comment on the unrest that has broken out in Ferguson, Missouri as well as other places. They are worried about the race wars heating up in our society, but I can tell you it is not any race war about which we have to worry. This is spiritual warfare and can be traced back to the race riots of 1968 and its surrounding years. Of course, back in 1968, there were…
Me: *enters heaven* God: So Jojo, what did you achieve in your time on earth? Me: *is proud* Johnnie and Jordan followed me on twitter. God: Well, that's nice, but did you achieve something bigger than that? Something more important? Me: God: Me: Hey Satan, do you need someone to help you out? Satan: You were a good person while you were alive. You never did something bad, why do you want to help me? Me: God said a follow from Johnnie and Jordan on twitter isn't an important achieve in life... Satan: Who's Johnnie and Jordan? Me: Satan: Me: Well, I'm ****ed.
100,000 years ago, the Remnants (composed of God like creatures) ruled a large chunk of the Rwbyverse. Then they vanished, ascending to a higher plane in a great journey with help of the 7 sacred Hammers Tens of thousands of years later (1****c by our count) a race of people left behind (known as the Noraians) worshiped the Remnants but were devided on how. The statics just wanted to worship them, while the reformers wanted to use their technology to further their people. A civil war broke out, which lead to the reformers leaving their homeworkd in an remnant battleship. Centuries later, the Noraians meet a new race, known as the Pyrrhaians. The Pyrrhaians, that the statics, saw the Noraians as heretics for using reminant technology. A Bloody war broke out, the Pyrrhaians, a martial people (who hadn't been floating around in reduced gravity for centuries) fought hard, but the Noraians, using their battleship in hit-and-run tactics prevailed. A treaty was signed c. 850bce, binding the wills of the two peoples. And such formed the confederation. The Noraians would give religious and spiritual leadership, and the Pyrrhaians would protect them and lead the military. (Along with the Pennians, who were just there to fix ****) Over the next 2 thousand years, the confederation added many other members to their thrall under the military leadership of the Pyrrhaians: The Taming of the Yangians- the Yangians could combine together to make monter-like beasts. Eventually the confederation prevailed. The Wiessians- Led by a few queens, their resolve crumbled once the queens were threatened. The Rubies- Pirates, joined the conference nor for profit than faith The Jaunes- Weak and cowardly, they gave in easily. -years later, rose in rebellion, and showed bravery, the Pyrrhaians granted them military service The Rens- them and the Pyrrhaians hate each other Then they met the blakes...
First of all, I'm on PS4, I don't know if this glitch is specific to PS4 or to Xbone as well. I was having this hangup where whenever i went to spec my mage to knight-enchanter, the game would freeze a few seconds afterwards. No biggie. After this happening multiple times, I decided to just delete the game and reinstall it.***** of a wrong decision there. I deleted the game from my console and then reinstalled it, and whenever i went to play the game, thats whenever I encountered this mega-glitch. A little background first, I have 3 characters, a rogue, warrior, and mage. The mage has around 28 hours in-game, with the warrior having 5 and the rogue having around 8. I'm pretty invested in this game. But anyway, back to the issue. After opening it up after reinstalling it, i click continue... I get this God-awful box that says quote, "This save file cannot be loaded, as installation is still in progress. Please wait for he installation to finish, then try again." Tried going to the load button and loading individual saves, same thing happens. I'm locked out of multiplayer as well, it says the same thing. I;m thinking this is due to the latest DAI ps4 update, hopefully it is patched very soon. I went on EA's website and i am not the only one encountering this problem. If it is happening to you, please post it here and get this thread popular, this glitch needs to be fixed.
TL;DR: Have a high search level and a large patch of grass. My shiny results are at the end. It's safe to say that chaining for shinies is back in the form of DexNav! These are just some tips from my own experience on how to chain and get yourself a shiny. This is in no way a definitive be all and end all guide. This is just what I've learned by catching a few shinies myself using this method. Feel free to comment what your chain and search level were at if you end up nabbing one. What will help: ¤ Super/Max Repels ¤ A pokemon with the sweet scent ability (e.g. Surskit) ¤ A pokemon with the synchronizer ability and preferred nature you want your shiny to be (e.g. Abra) ¤ A high search level ¤ A large patch of grass (if this is where you'll be doing your chaining) ¤ Being close to an area where there is a loading transition ¤ Ethers ¤ Capture o-power ¤ PP Restoring o-power ¤ Patience First off, in order to start searching for the pokemon you want to chain, you will have to have caught it at least once. After that you'll be able to tap on its sprite in the DexNav. This is where you can find your search level and actively start searching for the pokemon. From what I've experienced, the higher your search level, the smaller the chance you'll have at breaking your chain. Your chain will break if you start walking, encounter a pokemon other than the one you're chaining, or if the pokemon you're chaining can't be found nearby. So, take it slow! If you're chaining in grass the pokemon will remain stationary and will take about a minute before it will disappear on its own. If this happens to you, you can enter an area where there's a loading transition (short black screen) like a building and come back to quickly reset your DexNav. Before you start chaining, if you can find the pokemon you want to chain in a horde I recommend that you use sweet scent to rapidly increase your search level for that pokemon. I've had good luck getting it up to at least 50 and start chaining from there. Now to actually start the chain! All you have to do is pop a repel, click on the pokemon you want to search, and tap search. If you're doing this in grass (God help you if you aren't) all you have to do is take your time and just make sure you're sneaking. If you aren't doing this in grass I recommend that you practice being able to sneak/surf as fast as possible without scaring the pokemon off. The DexNav displays the following when you are close enough to the pokemon you are trying to chain: 1. Level 2. First move 3. Ability 4. Potential 5. Held item There's a chance of there being an exclamation point after its level, first move, and ability. It being after its level simply means it's a higher level, after its first move means it has an egg move, and after its ability means that it has a hidden ability (HA). From what I understand, each potential star is one perfect IV (can't test this for sure because I haven't beaten the game). All you have to do to chain is to either KO the pokemon or capture it and then search for it again without moving. Every 5th consecutive chain guarantees that pokemon to have at least 2 exclamation points and at least one potential star. The base level of the pokemon also increases by one. If I were to make a comparison, the odds to me seem about the same as chain fishing, although that is just a guess from my experience. Yours may differ. Here are my shinies that I caught just yesterday: http://imgur.com/Dd0RDtm (After a chain of 5 and search level of 60) http://imgur.com/x34U6Mz (First encounter and search level of 52) I used this patch of grass on route 121 http://imgur.com/MNro7zJ for those 2 pokemon. http://imgur.com/wtUDvRu (After a chain of 10 and search level of 85) I used this patch of grass http://imgur.com/fqnWaP6 on route 120 for marill. Please comment with your experiences and tips! TL;DR: High search level, large patch of grass, and luck. God help you if you aren't chaining in grass.
When I was a kid we used to volunteer at my church to cook once a month at the "Glory Hole". Obviously it didn't seem like a weird name then, but now that I'm an adult I'm embarassed to mention the place to someone who is new to town. Pretty much the WORST NAME POSSIBLE for a soup kitchen. I know it is a historically significant, mining related name, but for the love of god can we please find a new name? I'm sure we could pick one that is just as mining related/historical sounding. Hey soup kitchen, how about this? Change your name and I will donate part of my PFD using "Pick, Click, Give" next year.
I have been level 30 for a day one one character and so I have the right to say this. 1. Don't you know that I am the best at the game? If I join a game and see that it is full of level 29's then I will laugh in your face. I am above you now so you will have to deal with it. 2. The fact that I was not promoted to fireteam leader immediately upon entering orbit with you shows me you have no respect for your superiors. Learn to show some respect to those above you. 3. Don't you dare even think about touching the relic. If I die with it when I am trying to smash the 3 hobgoblins, it's bull. I don't care if you can successfully do it with a 29. I'd rather die a 30 then live to see a 29 holding the relic. 4. Laugh all you want with each other. Sure I don't mind. NOT! Do you think I am playing video games to have a good time? NO! I expect to be done the raid our first run through. 5. Did you seriously just die? You honestly were defending the right conflux with only 2 people and you slipped up for half a second and took lucky shot from a hob? How dare you. Don't be offended when I leave. 6. You seriously have connection issues with Destiny? You can't associate with me anymore. 7. The fact that you are not referring to me as "Sir, level 30, Nimbleturtles" is unacceptable and just plane rude. 8. Seriously. Don't die ever on the hard raid. Not even if I do. 9. I am a god who has blessed your presence if I have even responded to your lfg post to say, "How many level 30's do you have?" 10. I am allowed to be a jerk to everyone only based on my level, because I am luckier than you, which makes me more skilled than you. [Spoiler] This is a joke.

Has anyone found a fix for connecting the god damn magic mouse to yosemite. Sometimes I can get it connected by re registering it in bluetooth settings but as soon as i turn off the mouse it will never auto connect. I never had these problems in mavericks.
First of all, thank you for taking the time to read this and help me. I am in desperate need of guidance, and I do not know where else to turn at this point... The community here has been so inviting and helpful, and I would really appreciate your help. This is long, so I appreciate your time and and help/advice you could offer... Several months ago, I gave my life back to Christ. I saw what a mess I was in my heart, and I wanted to give my hopes, dreams, and future to God. I was raised in a nondenominational home, but my dad has always been insistent on the more "extreme" side of things. He has professed for years that we're living in the "end times," and that has been engrained in my mind my entire life due to mere exposure. Regardless, I was raised and exposed to Christianity for my entire life thus far. In August, however, my dad made several radical comments concerning his rather obsessive and absurd "end times" belief. I was under a lot of stress at the time with some issues with friends, work, and the prospect of leaving for another semester at college, and it broke me for some reason. I started to think about "what if it really IS the end times?" and it made me feel like my days were numbered, so to speak. I began to question the validity of my life and what life really means, if we're all going to die some day anyways. I collapsed and fell into an awful existential crisis, and I began to question the very basics of life itself. I couldn't sleep, I couldn't eat, I vomited several times a day, and when I visited my doctor, he prescribed my to Anxiety medication. I met with a pastor at my church concerning my problem, and it was absolutely no help whatsoever. He told me a bunch of "feel good" words, and after a few hours of feeling slightly better, I was right back to where I was before. Understandably, I fell into deep depression, and only recently have I come out of it. I stopped communicating with friends, shut down, stopped my hobbies, and basically became a walking, depressed zombie with no direction other than to show up to class, and be responsible for my health. I became a bit scrupulous, questions "wwjd" to EVERYTHING, from clothing choices to meal choices. I became obsessed with religion, because I had the deranged belief that being "perfect" was the only way to heaven. I was nervous about everything I did and whether God would approve or not, and it became too much. I decided to "put my faith on a shelf" for a few days, and I lived as someone who had no religious convictions for a short time of 3 or 4 days. Then, I came back to my faith and my scrupulosity had been cured substantially, since I stated my faith over with a blank slate. I've seen several different therapists in the past few months, and none have had much help for me, although they've all helped me a small portion in their own unique ways. So I am not here for you to tell me I need to see a therapist, because I've tried, and have found little to no help by doing so. In my existential crisis, I have come to think about death and the afterlife a lot. I imagine this is due to my depression, which is often accompanied by repeated thoughts relating to the topic of death. Seeing as college has granted me a good portion of downtime, I have researched Christianity, science, and the theme of death a lot, and I have really been at a crossroads. There is basically no proof that the afterlife DOES exist, yet this is also no proof that there is NOT one either. I legitimately do have have OCD (not joking, like so many people do about the disorder), so the lack of an answer is driving me mad. I NEED and WANT to know, but there is no confirmed answer! The lack of an answer has driven me to the likes and beliefs of Existential Christianity, which seems to say "there is no distinct proof of God, yet I chose to believe in him anyways." This resonates with me well, since I have no proof of God/afterlife, yet I want to believe in both... But I have had some Christians tell me that Existential Christianity is a "false" belief, because it distorts who God is. To me, if I believe in the God of the Bible, then whatever the bible says about Him is who He is. If I do not believe, then the Bible would hold credibility. I CHOOSE to believe, even though I have no sufficient, scientific proof to justify my beliefs. In my heart, I believe, so why does my particular Existential view make my philosophy wrong to some Christians? TL;DR- I'm having an existential crisis, and I don't know what to do. My faith is weak, and I need some reassurance. Can you please help prove God/the afterlife to me? Can you shed light on this if you have experienced something similar?
So i found the girl, right? We talked for a week and we decided to have ***. Awesome! She had sent me some dirty pics, i did too. I was so ****ing excited, you have no ideea. The girl is awesome in any ways. 2 things i didn't liked about her, but i'm not here to discuss that. Aaaanywaaaay, i went to her place we smoked some weed, things got real hot, i went down on her, she went down on me (oh god) aaaaaand i don't have a boner. I WAS high , but i like ****ing while high. And she is so ****ing hot. And i wanted to have *** with this girl soo ****ing bad! I feel like i've let down mankind. I'm 26. I work out. I have a phisical demanding job. I move around a lot. I should work fine, but i don't. I did watched a lot of **** and this might be the problem, but so was i before yesterday and this **** didn't happened. I feel so ****ing sorry for her because i lifted the expectations bar so high! And... nothing. At one point i was going to go to the nearest bar, drink everything, and somehow forget everything Including her beautiful face an)d body. The thing is i still ****ing want her. Bad! ****. I'm rambling. Why would my **** quit on me now?
We have been told that we are not to observe God's Law given to His people at Mount Sinai, and that we only have to believe en Jesus for salvation. Among other clear statements of the bible, we are told that Salvation is a free gift from God, and that it is not by works of the Law, but by Grace. But it seems to be a "paradox" when someone tells you that you are not under the law to observe the Law of God, but their also tell you that you shall not commit sin, and since is transgression of the Law of God. If we disobey the Law of God, it will be considered sin. Does that mean we should obey the Law of God to not trample the blood of Jesus? Consider the text Below: "14 For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace." Romans 6:14 "4 Everyone who sins breaks the law; in fact, sin is lawlessness. 5 But you know that he appeared so that he might take away our sins. And in him is no sin. 6 No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him." 1 John 3:4-6
Hey, this is my first post and apologies ahead of time if this is the wrong place for theories or what-have-you, but I just recently watched the series and the extended FWWM and think I might have finally made some little bit of sense out of it. 1) Bob and Mike are both evil spirits, or demons, and the dwarf and Gerard are the same person 2) The green ring is Mike's, and allows him to control/feed off of/something bad whoever has it 3) All the inhabitants of the black lodge have an uneasy alliance 4) When Leland/Bob murdered Teresa Banks, who had Mike's ring, he cheated Mike out of garmonbozia 5) At the meeting above the convenience store, all the demons decide that Bob must repay Mike 6) Mike decides to take his repayment by possessing Laura, Bob/Leland's daughter, hence why he tries so hard to give her the ring in the dream and such. 7) The Cooper in the dream is the real Cooper, and has realized what the ring does and therefore warns Laura not to take it, as he doesn't want her to be a pawn in this battle between Mike and Bob. 8) Bob (obviously) also doesn't want this, due to his own deep desire to possess Laura, and tries to stop her from taking the ring. This is why Mike drives up to them and has that road rage moment. He's reminding Bob that Bob owes him for the Teresa incident and should stop interfering. 9) Bob ignores this and decides to go ahead and possess Laura himself after he reads her diary. Mike somehow gets wind of this and runs to the train car, throws Laura the ring, and she puts it on, but then Bob kills her anyway just to spite Mike. 10) Even though he ruined Mike's plans, Bob still begrudgingly gives Mike the garmonbozia from Leland's pain and suffering, and the debt is (at least somewhat) forgiven. 11) Later in the series, when Mike aids Cooper in catching Bob and tells them he was changed by seeing God and has repented, he's either lying or the meeting with God happened right after Laura's death, perhaps by means of the angel seen in the train-car and the ending scene. Alright, there's a basic overview of it, I'm sure there's a billion issues where other scenes I'm forgetting contradict all of what I've said, but this is all I can get out in one sitting. Thank you for reading :)
So just to preface this; I tried online dating off and on for a total of 2 years. I did have some successes but most of my encounters were nothing like their profile. I am very good at seeing behind the mask people put online and eventually just went on dates with people to see if my predictions were correct. I would say I had an 80% accuracy rate when it came to actual profile to the person that showed up. Recently, my friend started online dating so she asked me for some tips. I told her just to Google but apparently this kind of advice does not exist on the web. This perspective is from someone who wants to find a relationship. Not a booty call. First Signing Up: After creating your profile and uploading your pictures, especially if you are a woman, you are initially going to be bombarded by the OATs. OATs stands for "On all the Time". Do not bask in this attention. OATs are like bottom feeders. These people live their social life through online dating. Avoid all contact with OATs. They usually are just serial texters. They will never go on a date or call you. Usually their profile is a bunch of malarkey and the pics are not theirs. Google Image Search before every date! Shut it down: After creating your online profile, close your computer and walk away for 12-24 hours. Trust me on this! Only OATs will be looking at your profile. The person you want is busy at work, out with friends, and living life. This is who you want, a NORMAN aka Normal –man/woman. NORMANs only get on 2-3 times on weekdays and almost never on the weekends. Why, because they are normal and have a life, career, and friends. Logging back in: You are going to have a lot of views, messages/IMs. If all they say is “Hey” or “What Up” or my favorite “You are beautiful” Delete and Ignore. These people are OATs or people looking for a booty call. Also, OATs can be people who are in a relationship but are bored. They just want someone to text. Don't waste your time. What to look for in a message: A NORMAN will ask you a question specific to your profile, this means they actually read your profile and not just thumbed through your pics. So if you mention paddle boarding they ask; “Where to you paddle board from?” or “Do you own your own PB?” A question like this will usually lead to a paddle boarding date. Pictures and the meaning behind them: Never smiling or closed mouth smiling: Bad teeth. Only Selfies: There are three sides to this. They only take a good picture from one angle. If you see this repeated they probably look nothing like their pic. Secondly, they are very into “me” and the profile is not about finding a relationship but more like a second Facebook page so people can tell them how beautiful they are, low self esteem. Thirdly, no pictures with other people, they have no friends. It is okay to zoom in on yourself or mark out other people in the picture. This is just being a good friend and not putting your friends on your dating profile. Out of Date clothing: Best pic of them ever taken so they put it up. But now they are 10-20 years older. Blurry Picture: Probably Married or in a relationship, I caught 3 guys who were in a relationship with friends. Picture of a Picture: Old picture, refer to out of date clothing. No Full body Pic: Trying to hide that extra 20lbs. Being overweight is fine, but people need to be up front about how they look. The person you are going to meet will have this image in their head then the real you shows up. Can you blame them for being a little taken a back? Key phrases to be mindful of: I just moved to the area: Looking for friends. Not really from the area but is in a relationship and does not want their significant other's friends finding their profile. My friends dared me: Lie. Just doesn’t want to admit they had to turn to online dating. This purveys some sort of sigma to online dating. I like to go out with friends or stay in and watch a movie: Most over used line, uncreative. My friends would call me “insert adjective here”: Again very over used. I hate drama but it seems to follow me around: Oh dear GOD ABORT! ABORT! This person is crazy. Too much Sarcasm: A little is okay but it is hard to convey sarcasm without voice intonation and they usually just sound like a ****. If every answer is cloaked in 3 layers of sarcasm, they are avoiding subjects by deflecting through humor. These people can be self-loathing and negative. Avoid! I know this is a lot of reading. But please add any advice you might have in comment box.
So I'm on a trip and vaping in my hotel room when the smoke alarm goes off. This had never happened before so I just fanned the cloud away and the alarm went quiet. 30 seconds later hotel security knocked, I explained everything and they understood. The next morning however, I woke up to being told I owed a $250 fine for smoke damage... I didn't want to cause a scene so I paid the fine but god damn am I mad. Tl;dr, set of smoke alarm and was charged $250 for smoke damage.
I said the “Our Father” one last time and made the Sign of the Cross before closing my eyes and executing the programme. It took a while to adjust to the darkness, fortunately just in time so see the black-eyed girl pounce from the corner. I dodged to the right and ran the holyWater subroutine. She howled and retreated to the corner. Thank, God, I downloaded the update this morning. The girl soon charged again, but this time, I was ready and shouted, “The power of Christ compels you!” which ran the exorcise subroutine. The child screamed once more and faded away. End programme. I opened my eyes to the girl’s parents praying by her bedside. I told them that everything was alright now and that their daughter should be awake within the hour. They thanked me as I unplugged her, untied her and packed up my interfacing equipment.
This author interview raises some interesting points. The author strikes me as insightful, fair-minded and in possession of a sense of humor, but those who disagree with her will probably find things to complain about. I would chalk up some of that to it being (seemingly) a transcript of a spoken interview. >Why is not great for women to conceive of themselves as essentially vulnerable? >Because I think it ends up with women almost over-fetishizing male power. Look at what happened between Naomi Wolf and Harold Bloom, which I write about more in the book. On the one hand she eroticizes his power, and then she resents him for it. She ends that story by saying she never wrote poetry again, but that’s incredibly silly! It all comes out of this incredibly overwrought relationship with this man and his power. He didn’t really exercise it—all he did was put a hand on her knee. >Part of what I am trying to do is take a somewhat more ironic stance towards male power and not stand so much in awe of it. I want to focus a bit more on male vulnerability, to point out that these men are wounded and needy and pathetic. With Harold Bloom I don’t see that as an instance of male power but male pathos. I mean, I think there are many instances of male power but not nearly as many as women tend to think. >Is that why you take issue with the phrase “unwanted ***ual advances”? >It’s such an issue on campuses, and my campus in particular. At the time I was writing the book, dating was still permitted between professors and students, but you were not supposed to make “unwanted ***ual advances.” I went to this workshop and asked, “How are you supposed to know if the advance is unwanted until you try it?” And there was no answer to that. It’s just a conundrum, a contradiction in terms. A flier got passed around calling all the students who had pressed charges against professors “survivors.” This was regardless of how merit-worthy their individual cases were, so the language has a kind of hysteria to it. >You wrote that you would hate to think that feminism means curbing anyone’s rapacious fantasy life. What do you mean by that? >You shouldn’t have to make your fantasies comport to social realities. I was once asked what my favorite *** scene is. I said it was in Marnie, where Sean Connery’s character ****s his wife on their honeymoon. And then I was horrified that I said it. I thought, “Oh my God, do I have **** fantasies?” And I’m not sure I do, but I don’t think we should all have to police our fantasy life, that every desire should conform to our political idea of what things should look like. I think there’s a good girl complex that has infected American feminism. I’ve mocked the Puritan leanings of American feminism before. >Do you think there’s a different direction feminism should be taking? >I tend to feel pretty distant from what people call feminism at the moment. It’s often about the moral high grounding of men, and that often means taking fairly conservative positions and not going for the radical politics. The most radical thing anyone could do now in terms of feminism is insisting on child care as a social entitlement. But instead we hear a lot about how men shouldn’t be allowed to use the word “****s” in public. Women are charged with being the moral correctives on men, the cultural superego, and I definitely can’t fall into that role. I just kind of loathe it—it’s a why do I have to be the responsible one kind of thing?
