2020.09.27 11:39 MinitayHow do I play an egoistic character?
I have a character who's main flaw is that he overestimates his own importance, and becomes uncomfortable when the subject is not related to him at least a tiny bit (imagine that ProBirdRights twitter meme). I usually roleplay really well and have a great time mixing between and balancing the character's flaws and strengths, and it's really fun to watch my characters grow throughout the campaigns (all that, of course, without being a jerk to the other players). One flaw I have a hard time playing is a character who's egoistic or egotistical (he comes from a noble family). I don't really know how would that play out in roleplay scenes, or when the characters are discussing what to do, etc. Any suggestions as to how such a character would act during gameplay?
2020.09.27 10:40 Soul-MalachiJump Force Season 3 DLC Character List Choices. (Opinion)
Alot of people are debating over who the next characters in the season 2 DLC list are going to be, I felt like putting up a post to outline my chosen picks for a potential season 3 character list if Jump Force ever gets one. These choices aren't just me Fanboying over who I would like to see who's in the game, I've had many discussions with friends and other players on the subject and the 5 characters I've come to a conclusion on is in my opinion some of the most likely or most popular to be added. Please bear in mind that these choices are my personal opinion, please don't be writing hate comments over the choices, this is purely for the fun of discussion and speculation. First of all some background on why I think these choices are likely: Jump Force is most likely NOT going to add any new characters from any new series, I mostly think this because the past 2 seasons have not added any characters from new series, and its likely not to happen due to the fact that Bandai/Spike aren't going to want to pay money getting the licenses to new series just for the game and because lets be fair, they are pretty lazy when it comes to this kinda stuff (Its Bandai what do you expect). Secondly, Bandai/Spike are looking to sell as much product as possible and advertise the animes the characters from classic or most relevant shows, thats just business which is their main priority in making the game, so they are going to try and choose characters from existing series that are most popular or relevant to the fanbase as they can (This is debatable as the fanbases are always volatile and Bandai/Spikes choices probably don't match up with fan opinion. #1 Orochimaru - Naruto Orochimaru is one of the most popular villains and characters of the Naruto series. Naruto is also considered to be one of Jumps "Big Three" Animes and between season 1 and 2 we've only had Madara as a character, It makes sense to me at least that adding one of the most popular and classic villain characters would be a good bet. #2 Beerus - Dragon Ball Z Beerus being added to Jump Force is a character I feel would be a very effective choice for Bandai/Spike to make, Beerus is arguably the most popular character in Dragon Ball Super and was one of the main reasons people were so interested in Dragon Ball's return in the Battle of Gods Movie. Beerus being a character in the Battle of Gods movie also places him inside the Dragon Ball "Z" license of characters, as Bandai/Spike do not have the license for Super as of right now (And as stated above they most likely won't be adding any new series to the game). Beerus would be a great addition not only for his popularity but due to his presence as a God of his universe, giving him lore reasons for being there as he could be curious about the realities merging together and looking for goku and Vegeta for them to explain why, joining the Jump Force out of boredom or some other reason. #3 - Endeavor - My Hero Academia Endeavor being added to Jump Force would make an interesting choice due to his latest role in the My Hero series at the end of season 4, having him added in with his current appearance and supers/ultimate relating to his appearance in season 4 would be a good way for Bandai to advertise My Hero due to the new season arriving soon. Endeavor would also have lore reasons to be there with All Might and Todoroki being around wanting him to join and his character would also be another fire user to close the gape on the overbalanced amount of Ice users in the game as a personal point. #4 - Brook - One Piece This choice is more personal of a choice then the others. Brook being added to Jump Force might not make as much sense in the grand scheme of things, however Brook is a fan favourite for many people, being one of the more notable characters in the Straw Hat crew that would be suitable for a fighting game such as Jump Force. Brook is a thin and nimble character who would most likely look great in the Jump Force game and his over the top laugh while doing combo's would be entertaining to hear. #5 - Kakyoin - Jojo's Bizzare Adeventure Everyone knows we're getting Giorno for Season 2 (If its not I shall be extremly surprised) but for Season 3 if Jojo was to have another DLC character to respresent them I beleive Kakyoin would be the best choice. As a member of the Stardust Crusaders and a good friend of Jotaro, he would be effective lore wise. Bandai/Spike are also most likely only going to add Stand users to the game if they choose Jojo characters as they will want to stick with whats easiest for them to do and not go to too much trouble trying to model in non stand users as a result. Kakyoin would be effective with Hierophant Green and his famous Emerald Splash and if they wanted they could also add a specal effect if he fights a female character similar to Sanji, becoming flirty and playful aside from his ussual demeanor (Kakyoin the MILF Hunter for JF!) Honorable Mentions: Some other characters I feel could also be a possibility include: Shigaraki (My Hero) - Villain Character to rival Deku and the other Class 1A Students Akainu (One Piece) - Fire User and main antagonist of arguable the most famous arc of One Piece Hol Horse (Jojo) - My Brothers favourite character from Jojo and honestly a rather good meme Pick Honestly there are many other good choices that could be made. These are simply my opinions on who might be added. I want to note that I didn't choose characters from series like Black Clover, Boruto, Fist of the North Star etc because I feel that since these series only gave us one character each, they are most likely not high on Bandai's list of series to add to and were more placed in the game to make the game more popular to fans of the more niche series (Don't flame me for calling anime like Black Clover Niche, i'm just thinking from a perspective) Hope you enjoy reading thru this post and would love to hear your opinions, please try not to be hateful and abusive to me or others in the comments, it would be apreciated. Also sorry if you noticed spelling errors and typo's, not the best at long writing and I type rather fast most of the time so there's that.
2020.09.27 10:35 IhsanAndEgeI'm sick of self-deprecating wall of text memes
I don't find self-deprecating jokes funny in the first place, but a literal wall of text one like this is just not even a joke/meme anymore. There's no punchline, and i look at memes to laugh, if a meme is only relatable, without a punchline or joke, its just a "haha yeah", not even a chuckle. And these memes are trying to be both relatable and sad, but failing at the relatable part. It's just sad.
2020.09.27 10:29 aitsballsAnyone here who can't 'feel' loneliness?
The other day I might have offended some people here for implying their loneliness is self imposed. I just have trouble understanding it, this emotion or whatever it is. So when one feels lonely it's similiar to having thirst for water right? We are biologically programmed to crave socialising although the seeking part/motivation differs from person to person based on their individuality, experience. So a person who 'feels' a certain lonely seeks to engage social interaction, naturally without thinking about it, if he can? Or consciously knows he is lonely and seeks out to socialize. Which one is it? If you feel lonely is it equal to feeling sad? How would one construct a lonely feeling machine? I've self isolated for years. Never had any friends only in childhood. Still by then I always identified as an einzelganger ever since I knew what the meaning of that was. Have you ever thought yourself that being a loner is a positive adaption? A more negative note, I don't think I'll ever have such a beautiful thing as a family, I don't think I can feel 'connected' to another person, not even to my own family. Do I need to experience a great relationship o understand what loneliness is? People who break up often claim to feel extremely lonely more than usual because the happy hormones stopped coming and their emotional attachment, the love is no more? So they often seek someone who can fill the void, do the whole shlick again of saying 'I love you, you're so special'? Till that person becomes another ex. I'm defective from an evolutionairy standpoint. It's sad. I cannot imagine being attached to someone and for them to genuinly love me back. To even want to be with me for the rest of their lives unless I offered great novelty, and he has some farmer mindset so he doesn't mind doing the same thing everyday, looking, talking with the same person? Read this study once that both the people in a long term relationships see their partner as a comfy couch. Quite sad, nothing romantic about it. Also pretty sure I will be part of the 20% of females and males that don't pass their genes. Then again for not craving social interaction I do socialize (like this post here) and don't dislike it usually. Would like it if someone responded positively and shared their thoughts. I read what other people have written daily on the internet all my life. There has been a two year period where I had not opened my mouth for speaking or used the internet much. I've always been a lurker, nobody knows that I exist but last year I'm trying to be a poster and start writing, train my writing skills. The long period of self isolation had a bad effect on my speech and social skills. More slurring, can't speak complete sentences anymore, similiar to having a stroke and I've always been bad at reading comprehension and sentence formulation. Slow talker. Not articulate. Related to this sub I wish I could add this image to my post but I don't have it anymore. I liked the forever alone meme a lot back in 2011 but never got the lonely part. The sadness and being a loser I do understand. My favorite forever alone meme was this short comic of Steve building a castle in the infinite procedural generated empty 'feeling' world of early alpha minecraft claiming himself to be a king after he finished building it. The final part Steve's face with a crown, is morphed into the forever alone meme with tears because he realizes he's all alone in his world. I love this game so much. This whole post is just a ramble. For sure I'm overcomplicating it. Or can't understand the intricacy of normal language haha. Or I'm just an extreme introvert but then again I've read a lot of posts of self claimed introverts who can't go a day or two without hookups, kisses and hugs. Extroverts are more likely to feel lonely. Because their brain wiring is adapted to that I believe. They've basically been conditioned to recognize what society would define as a not enough amount of quality/quantity in the terms of social bonding. Then they 'feel' sad because they recognize this deficit, which they label loneliness. Which is my argument for why loneliness is a choice and a state of mind. And no don't compare the same with depression being a choice as your argument. Apples and oranges. Thank you for reading, wanted to share my perspective and I wish you a good day.

2020.09.27 10:05 kamiikamiWhat image bank some of them (Korone, Choco, others) and even some translation channels use?
I've seen Korone use a lot of, be it for memes, foods she wanna show or people, I see Choco has a microphone and sometimes food-related things and a lot of translation channels use too (like this viral one of Marine talking about HoloEN Manager). That kind of crayon-like styled drawings, it just seems to come from the same rich bank of image, what is it?
I need advice from fellow DMs. I am livid and having something of a breakdown. Forgive the long post. I run a campaign that I've been working on diligently for over a decade, playing new and updated versions of it when old ones end. I have a great group and we're currently a little over six months into the campaign, and the players absolutely love the world, story, and their characters! Currently, our group is made up of mostly political leftists (including myself and my husband) or liberal folks. One of my hard fast rules is that I don’t invite people to the table whose politics clash too hard with our own; if someone’s politics include thinking that me and mine shouldn’t be alive or shouldn’t have rights, kindly move along to another table. I am perfectly fine with players having differences in political opinion, but not when those opinions are hostile or disrespectful to the existence of members of the group. Many of us (myself included) are LGBT folks, so we’re pretty careful about who we play with. Among our players, there’s one that has a political stance that differs pretty wildly. She works in the emergency response field, and she’s hardline pro-police where the rest of us are pretty ACAB. Her point of view on the cops is one I understand given that she works beside them and relies on them for protection in dangerous situations, even if I personally find the position reprehensible given recent events. In almost everything else this player agrees with the rest of the table; being pro-cop is pretty much the only major disagreement we have. We’ve known about this position of hers for a long time, and we’ve played with her before. She’s an excellent player who loves the lore and setting, and her roleplaying is incredible. Due to the current apocalypse all of our playing is on Discord. Between sessions the group will chat, share art and memes, roleplay in-character downtime, and otherwise bond. Most of us live in Kentucky, and the recent Grand Jury decision regarding Breonna Taylor’s death was extremely relevant to a lot of the group. In the Discord a brief discussion about it came up, which led to discussion about the ensuing protests/riots, which lasted for a few minutes before I shut the conversation down. It had the potential to get heated, and I didn’t see it as a particularly good conversation to have when one of the people in it was pro-cop. I told everyone to stop talking about it in the moment and later had a conversation with the pro-cop player. She agreed not to bring up her pro-cop stance in a group of LGBT and minority players anymore, and that it was best to keep conversation to either game-related or non-political stuff. She agreed, and I thought that was the end of it. My husband came to me later and basically told me he didn’t feel safe with the pro-cop player in the game. He wants me to kick her out of the game because of her pro-cop positions, citing that many of the other players are LGBT or otherwise minorities and that having someone who supports the police in the game is upsetting. I’ve refused, and he’s considering dropping the game, and I have reason to believe that if he does, he won’t be the only one. I am livid. Please understand that I personally disagree with the pro-cop player, and that I find her support and rhetoric disgusting. But as a Dungeon Master my role is not to dictate or police (ha) people’s opinions. My husband and I both knew about her opinions before the game, and have played with her for about a year in other games. This is nothing new. One thing I refuse to do is let my players, any of my players, try to dictate how my game is run. My husband and I built this game together. We’ve stayed up late nights planning out plot twists and designing character arcs for over ten years, and when he plays in it as a player I take great joy in throwing curveballs at him to keep his interest up. He’s always been my greatest creative partner in crime, and building the narrative with him in mind is one of my absolute highest joys. Telling me to boot a player over a difference in political opinion we’ve known about for years feels like a slap in the face. It feels like my creativity, my passion, and my hard work that I pour into making a game for my players is being held hostage because of this. Pro-cop has already agreed to keep politics out of the game. My husband knows how much effort I put into this, and how much this game means to me. Pro-cop is my player. She’s part of my crew. She is entitled to every bit as much respect and protection as anyone else at my table. Unless a player is being downright toxic to the other players, I will not boot them. I’ve had to boot toxic players before, people who were legitimately shitty people. While my friendship with pro-cop is strained over her position, I can’t justify classifying holding that opinion as threatening or toxic. Her opinions are (my opinion) shitty, but not caustic – there’s a big difference between “I support the police and don’t think riots are the answer” and “I support police brutality and screw all y’all”. Pro-cop is LGBT herself (which makes her position more baffling to be honest), and aside from this, her politics align with ours pretty neatly. I feel like my husband is being unreasonable, especially given that pro-cop has agreed not to engage with political stuff anymore. Husband and I have talked about it, but the talks go nowhere. He’s still “considering” whether he’ll leave the group, and it feels like everything I’ve built means nothing to him. The joy of creation and storytelling is the highest joy I can experience. It is what drives me when nothing else can. This whole situation is damaging my mental health. It’s almost 4 in the morning where I live and I can’t sleep. I haven’t slept well in the few days since this all started. I’m having panic attacks at the thought of losing the campaign that I’ve put so much of myself into because of this. My anger-fueled, knee jerk reaction is to burn the campaign to the ground and start again in a few months from the beginning with completely new players, but I understand that’s my Dungeon Master Dramatics and defense mode activating and it wouldn’t be fair to the other players. I’m considering booting husband from the game permanently for trying to essentially force me to boot another player. The one person I trusted never to hurt me like this is now the one person who is. I understand that tensions are high. Things are heating up in the anarchy fandom! I understand my husband being disgusted by pro-cop’s position, as I am too. I understand that this issue is deeply personal, and it is for me too, but the fact that we knew her position on this and that she agreed not to talk about it anymore after a very brief Discord debate makes me think that husband is being unreasonable. Hell, the themes being debated are legitimate themes in the story of the campaign, too! She’s my player. When I’m behind the screen I’m not a husband, a friend, or a dashingly handsome lover of great renown. I am a Dungeon Master (and also dashingly handsome lover of great renown). Any of my players, husband or no, demanding that I boot the player or he walks (with others potentially following) feels wrong. It feels like a betrayal, and I’m afraid if I cave on it I would never respect myself as a storyteller or Dungeon Master again. I have placed my game on hiatus while I navigate this issue. I need advice. What I don’t need is political debate or jabs at anyone’s stances; details were provided for context because, frankly, I could be wrong in how I’m handling this and I feel like the specific context is important here. Someone could argue “The deeply personal implications of someone’s stance on policing makes your husband justified” or “the pro-cop player’s positions are understandable and she’s being reasonable in how she’s approaching them with the group” and both would be helpful, relevant approaches. What wouldn’t be helpful is “lol dumb libs” or “cops r bad lol”; I need advice on how to approach this as a Dungeon Master, not on whether everyone’s politics are dumb. Switch everybody’s political positions around and the root issue I’m experiencing is still the same. Am I being unreasonable in my anger? What would you do if you were in my position? Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, and thank you further for your insight.

2020.09.27 06:06 richardrichard190[TOMT][Meme][this year] Philosophy-related meme with 4 stages, says something like: "the object no longer resembles the image" or something like that
I remember this meme making the rounds on twitter maybe just a month ago or so, and it had 4 stages, and was used to describe something that was created, then over time kind of morphed into something else that no longer resembled the original thing. I might be messing this up someway, but the gist of the meme is the 4 stages of development, which i'm pretty sure were linked to an actual philosophical theory or something. Pls help me find this, i've been rattling my brain for the last few hours and it's bugging me a lot lol.

2020.09.27 05:03 th0w4w4y_2020[University Debate] the 2014 World's University Debating Championship
I wrote a hobbydrama thing, and it was honestly a lot of fun!! I graduated from university a while back, so this is a bit of old-ish drama, but here's some juicyyyy ☕️ stuff that happened. I'm hoping to share now that time has passed - a lot has probably changed, so take this story with a grain of salt! 📚 Context: University debating is a relatively large activity. Every year, the World's University Debating Championship (WUDC/World's) occurs at the end of December. It lasts for around a week or two. WUDC is hosted by a different country every year, and in order to host WUDC, a country's institution (i.e. Harvard, etc.) needs to bid for the spot. A vote needs to occur (facilitated by the WUDC Council) that is voted on by eligible countries. WUDC is arguably the most prestigious and competitive tournament in debate. Hundreds of the top debaters in the world participate every year, held in high regard. It is generally an enjoyable + stressful experience. Side note: This tournament is debated in British Parliamentary (BP) style. This isn't too relevant, but may help in understanding what BP means in some quotes below. For 2014 WUDC/World's, the Rajalakshmi Engineering College (REC) in Chennai, India hosted WUDC (December 26, 2013 - January 4, 2014). There were several issues that occurred at the tournament. 👩💻 Organizational Committee: The administration at the university took control of the tournament. Usually, the World's University Debating Championship is run by tournament organizers who are relatively prominent in the debating circuit, and not someone appointed by the university. Mr. Phillip was the REC's placement officer. He could threaten the Organizational Committee with expulsions and cancellations of their existing job offers if they did something he didn't like, which was a major issue. Members of the Organizational Committee were also sacked for questioning the REC. The REC also controlled the 2014 WUDC website, so members of the Organizational Committee couldn't edit anything. 👩⚖️ Judges Payments: They wanted to pay judges in rupees instead of euros but apparently didn't tell the judges that this was happening. For context, every university/institution brings a certain number of judges (there are rules to this) for free. There are specific slots for Independent Adjudicators (IAs) who are sponsored/funded by the tournament. Often these are qualified judges who have been successful in debate before. IAs were promised to be reimbursed. REC apparently had around 40,000 euros allocated for IA travel. Not only that, but they wanted to use an outdated December 2012 exchange rate instead of the December 2013 exchange rate because rupees had depreciated. This meant that debaters were promised X amount of money, but would receive an outdated conversion rate to rupees version of it. 💰General Payments:
The REC refused to pay the Adjudication team and members of the Organizational Committee for fees incurred while fixing the tournament.
The REC lied about expenses being paid.
The REC paid for ridiculous things (i.e. Famous people speaking at the ceremonies and motorbikes at the Women's Night).
They refused to pay for individuals' rooms because they were "insulted by jibes they made at the closing ceremony".
💸Budget: The budget that was created by the REC was fake, and there was clear money laundering. The REC spent $75,000 dollars on publicity before the event, but there was hardly any real publicity. The curtain raiser was 400,000 INR, but it had no more than 50 people. 🏡Hotels: Note: There are entrance fees/registration fees to attend this tournament, but everything else should be covered through these fees (i.e. Hotel costs are negotiated by the tournament, food is operated by the tournament, etc.). Institutions pay quite a lot of money to attend WUDC, so they have expectations for the tournament. Originally, they wanted to put women and men in separate hotels and were apparently persuaded against it by the argument made that it may turn the men gay. Participants were originally told that the hotels would be 7 stars and good (the ITC Grand Chola). They ended up switching to smaller, cheaper hotels (and 4 separate hotels). Apparently, the REC negotiated a contract with the hotel but then refused to sign it. People were charged 6 dollars for wifi. In my opinion, not the biggest deal, but for debaters who are busy preparing for a huge tournament, this caused a lot of anger. Hotel review: 1 star (from a debater)
Even in prison you get access to your cell. I didn't realise five star hotels ever held their guests possessions ransom for £6 wifi bills. I'm also sick of waiting an hour for room service and playing mind games where even when I'm asking for something, I know it will never arrive. We shouldn't even have had to pay £6 a day for wifi anyway. It's 20f^#%ing14.
Some individuals were chased out fo their hotel with baseball bat-wielding policemen. Some room charged sometimes appeared with an "extra zero" In one of the hotels, everyone on the 4th floor was locked out of their rooms on the night of the Grand Final. The hotel demanded immediate cash payments for room access, and those who couldn't make the charges had items stolen from their rooms or were locked out. These people were told one of two things:
The REC had asked them to do this
There was a technical error that led to the mass lockout, but here please could you sign this bill?
Hotel review: 1 star (from a debater)
I travelled here with a number of friends. On two separate nights they deleted the key cards claiming they needed people to pay internet bills. Firstly these internet bills were false in that they over charged and charged for times when we were not in the hotel. Secondly their justification was that it would be easier as they would not get a queue at reception. There is currently a queue of approximately 150-200 people. This hotel has redeeming features but their service is atrocious.
I'm just going to list out some more titles of reviews here: "Want your things taken hostage at midnight? Go here", "Literally attempted to extort money from guests", "Please don't lock me out of my room", "Sneaky Charges and Questionable Ethics", "Christ this place is awful", "hell is real", "Genuinely Appalling", etc. In one of the hotels, a wing was closed off because a fire that killed over 100 people occurred a few weeks prior to the tournament. There were dead birds in the hotel. There were bloodstains in the hotel. There were bullet holes in the walls. A lot happened. 🚑 Safety: Paramedics: Apparently, there were no paramedics on campus on weekends. The next hospital was 30 minutes by car (one way) General Safety: In one of the debate rooms, a giant pane of glass fell 4 stories in a debate room. It was also full of wasps. However, this could just be attributed to bad luck/timing. 👯♀️Women's Night: Women's Night is a thing that has become a custom at the World's University Debating Championship. This is often to empower women and give them a place to have fun and enjoy themselves because debating can often be biased against non-cis men (i.e. women get lower scores, etc.). REC decided to replace the women's night with a motorcycle exhibition + free beer, with the justification to appeal to the men. A quote for the late and beloved Alfred (Big Tuna) Snider:
"[...] Was not scheduled and a motorcycle event was held instead. I think I do not need to comment about this. No tweets talked about how great the motorcycle event was."
🍎Food: There was food poisoning. Dietary constraints were ignored. Taj (the original catering service) was scrapped because of budget constraints. However, regardless of where the tournament occurs, there are often issues with food (food poisoning, dietary constraints), which is generally something the debate circuit should talk into consideration more. ✈️ Visas: Visas are generally significant to consider when voting for a hosting site for WUDC, given that this is an international tournament. However, Visas were harder than expected to get (even though people were told it would be easy when the bid came up. Pakistani participants, in particular, had trouble getting visas. ⏱ Post-Tournament: God was there a lot of drama. The above definitely isn't EVERYTHING that went wrong at the tournament, but it is a good chunk of what did. The judges ended up striking and refused to release the Tab (results). Eventually, this was resolved, but there was a huge fallout from this. People threatened to take this to the news, which became the center of a lot of discourse and memes later. Many argue that the fault of Chennai Worlds doesn't lie with the Organizational Committee - and justifiably so. In my opinion, the fault lies in the fact that the REC was irresponsible and should not have been given the bid. At the time, all of the poor reviews left by debaters after the tournament took a whole star off of the Taj Clubhouse Chennai. You can see some quotes from the hotel reviews above. There is a debating meme group that has risen to prominence over the past few years called "Debating Shitposting". In 2017, someone screenshotted a review (I quoted it above, the one that said "Even in prison you get access to your cell"). This caused major backlash from many who said this was inherently racist and reeked of Western entitlement (i.e. complaining about 6 dollar wifi). Others said that while Western entitlement is bad, it's inherently patronizing to suggest that the behaviours of the hotel (i.e. police chasing people with bats) were the standards of service to expect. And others said that these aren't privileged standards, as Chennai is a metropolitan city and the Taj Hotels Group is a billion-dollar corporation, and that it's problematic to assume lower standards of care given that it's not in the West. A few years later (after I'd graduated), there was a HUGE doomthread-esque thing that occurred. Someone wrote a parody of "We didn't start the fire" by Billy Joel that referenced MANY pieces of drama that had occurred (debate is a very big shitshow, so there's a lot of drama). In this parody, there was this:
Chennai World's verse, prepare to take a nap. Tab delays, judge strike, pageants for some motorbikes, Evacuations out hotel, debating in a living hell.
And from this doomthread meme, this comment was birthed:
I am sicked by the comments made here by parties who are trying to erase and whitewash debating history. Nope sorry. Chennai was a living hell form my own experiences and not because 1 person told me. I've fought in three wars and never suffered as much or seen so much unneeded suffering as I did in Chennai. Sorry, but that is what happened. The actual facts are that the people commenting years later are only ignorant in so far as tey have no idea how horrible Chennai actually was. What happened at Chennai was not "a bad WUDC". It was evil. It is important that people remember that. Saying so is not racist, and calling those who #rememberchennai racist is just more evil. I honestly hope that debaters years from now still talk, and sing, and tell about Chennai and what was there. It is important that in never happenes again, it is also important because it is a good way to deal with trauma. Some deal wit the collective trauma through humor, some through group talk and some deal with it by being alone in the dark. Theya re all my friends. I'm sorry you can't participate at worlds - But if you have zero respect for the victims and heroes who came before you and carried the torch of BP through its darkest moment - maybe it is better you don't.
2020.09.27 05:02 noiamnotabananaI need help. And fast. As in within less than 3 hours after this post was made.
Ok so basically i am in seventh grade, and have a cousin who is in sixth grade, and he was supposed to get his puberty talk that I did at the end of fifth grade, but coronavirus happened. Anyway, I was texting him, and he asked me what happened in the class, bacause he was curious, and wouldn't be getting a talk about it. I told him everything, and included the comments that t classmates made, like asking dumb questions like is this puberty related, and showing a picture of the face of a hentai girl on the teachers computer, and I included this, because my cousin said that he also wanted the comments when I asked him, and I gave fair warning (The picture didnt show anything bad, no moaing or shit, just the face of some anime chick with a fang, a weird smile, and red hair). Anyway, at the top of the picture, it obviosuly showed what I searched up, because it was what my classmate searched up: Weird hentai succubus anime meme with fang. Very specific. Anyway, my cousin started making sex jokes, and I was half asleep, since he texted me at 2am and woke me up, so I made one back. And since my cousin is a fucking snitch, and enjoys drama, he showed his dad the pic, because he was bored, and due to its mighty fucking specific search bar, it makes it seem like I watched it. He also showed him fucking everything, and his dad apparently called me a fucking slut, which is a shame, because I was starting to like him, and think that he was friendly. Anyway, how do I know this, you may ask? Because my drama-loving cousin told me. Also apparently his mom had parental controls the whole time, and saw our texts. Fucking surprise that they want us to visit their house now (Since they are in our virus bubble) right after I found out. We need to go tomorrow. I fucking know that they will tell my parents, and they will fucking kill me, since out of embarrassment, my cousin deleted the parts of text about him asking about it. What the fuck do. I do. My parents think of me as an innocent kid, that is friendly, introverted, and nice. Tomorrow my entire fucking world collapses. What do I do? Tell them the full story tonight before I go there? What if my strict dad gets pissed at me? And my parents hate me? What if it is a conicedence, and they dont mention it, and I spilled the beans to my parents for nothing? Do I just wait it out? If I pretend to be sick, and dont go, then kieran's parents will surely tell my parents, and I won't have an alibi to defend myself, or the full story. I need advice. I don't want to die. I don't want to ruin my own life. I already have anxiety and nearly k*lled myself twice. I know this seems like an overreaction, but what if they say it, and I don't think straight, and end it all? I know this seems like I'm fucking joking around, but I can't think straight, and I haven't eaten anything all day. Kieran's parents want us to come over with our bikes, so they will probably spill the beans while we are out biking. Do I just bike away? Seems like the best option right now, because when my parents find me, they might be to focused on finding me than what happened. Typing it now sounds super fucking manipulative, but still, what tf do I do? I need serious advice and fucking fast. Before my parents fall asleep around 11:00. Please. I am fucking begging you. Edit: It seems that people want me to just tell them. I’m horrible with words, and I stutter, so if somebody can reply with ideas of what to say then that would be great, thanks Edit 2: I told my mom why that kieran's parents are inviting us over for a reason, and that something serious happened between us, and I will tell them tonight. I know that they won't believe the truth about the pic, since the explanation on our texts have been deleted on both sides, and the truth isn't well, very believable. I seriously need help on that part in less than 50 minutes. How tf do I explain the pic, as I have no proof of the truth, and the truth isn't very believable, I need answers, and FAST!!!! Edit 3 (Final Edit): I told my parents, and they were totally understanding! Saying we're in middle school, and it's normal, and they've always know Kieran was a bitch, but my dad also went through my text history, didnt see the bad stuff, but saw (Such as, but not limited to): Shits out toaster Hi Kieran! Slips foot, waist, and head up your ass until I'm inside you, and I gobble up you're organs, bones and skin until you're inside me, pervert, *Grabs your hand super tight before screaming "WE SHALL FUSE! LET IT BEGIN!" and fusing with you until we become two children in a trench coat, and *Shits out clock Kieran, when are you going to text me? so basically he saw all that, and the reason why I was texting him in the first place was because I wasn't i contact with any of my friends, and I was getting lonely, but that's changes now. Thank you to everyone for the support, and I hope that tomorrow goes well! Goodnight everyone!
