Mother: Son, I'm going to go to the supermarket. Do you need anything?
Me: Nope.
Mother: Are you sure?
Me: Yes, I am.
Mother: Absolutely sure?
Me: Absolutely sure...
Mother: Really really absolutely sure?
Me: Yes! I am absolutely certain that I don't need anything from the supermarket. I do not require anything from the place called the supermarket. Nothing needs to be purchased from that place where you will do your shopping. Buying nothing from that place would please me a lot!
Mother: Okay, fine... I heard you the first time...
One trip to the supermarket later...
Mother: Hey son, I got you that thing you wanted.
Me: GODDAMMIT WOMAN! I TOLD YOU I DIDN'T NEED ANYTHING FROM THE DAMN STORE!

Compare this to my father:

Father: Son, I'm going to go to the supermarket. Do you need anything?
Me: Nope.
Father: Okay, cya later.
And that's the end of the story.

Thank you father, for speaking the language I do!
This is just a philosophical musing of mine, but I wonder what will happen in terms of homosexual married couples divorcing now that they're legally allowed to marry in the US. Are they going to divorce just as much as straight couples (which is between 50% and 75% of the marriages if you look at the stats) or are they going to divorce less? Maybe even more? 

And if there are any differences in that, what is the cause of these differences? I think that from a sociological and psychological point of view this might becomes a very interesting field of study to start experimenting with. I really believe we can learn a bit more about marriages and romantic relationships now that a homosexuals can marry without all the fuss and nonsense.

And I also wonder how divorces will work. In a straight divorce it's very simple: the woman gets special treatment, but how would that work if both people are guys or both people are women? I guess it depends on a number of factors, like whether both parties work or whether one of them is a stay-at-home dad/mom who raises the adopted/in vitro children. I think this too could be an interesting sociological concept to study and observe.

So yeah, post any thoughts you want here. Let's have a non-religious discussion in this forum for a change.

You know, I really hate Days of Our Lives, but I always have to listen to it because my godmother adores the sitcom. Based on what I hear and the ocassional scene I do see I think I can say the following about the cast:

1) All the women in this show are manipulative, lying cunts who are either trying to fuck over someone else or who are trying to hide their own fuck-up.
2) Half the men in this show are manipulative, lying dicks who are either trying to fuck over someone else or who are trying to hide their own fuck-up. The other half are some of the dumbest morons I have ever seen in my entire life and are usually the victims of all the manipulation.

But that isn't really the worst thing about this goddamn sitcom. The very worst thing is the dialogue, which is why I absolutely loathe listening to it. You see, rather than talking to each other like realistic people everyone in this goddamn sitcom thinks he or she is a psychologist and therefore they all spend a great deal psycho-analyzing each other in front of their faces. Who, besides me ( = the weird guy), does that in real life?

But people love their junk, I guess. Now psycho-analyze away!

Looking in the mirror for twisted reflection
Who is that and why does he wear my skin?
Walking in my shoes down the same direction
Watching all the lies I would spin

My throat gets sore from all my screams
These days only the rasp sound of Gollum
Fuck and goodbye I say to my dreams
No more than a mockery of what is solemn

Tears roll down my cheek as I shiver
From the hot sting of your cold blaze
For if I give in to fear and quiver
The walls get destroyed, with it a flood

Punch the wall until my rage breaks
Ran out of brick to tear down
Looking at the grass for the filthy snakes
As my happiness becomes the size of a worm

Run down the hall, looking for proper words
To write a poem I can't talk about
But all I find are thoughts that tear out of my heart
And I just want to cut them off

A heart, what kind of use does it serve?
It stabs at your mind and makes you berserk
You can't live without it and it knows
That's why it feels no shame blackening your soul

Fuck eloquency and special words
That need to be put in a poem to make it special
I just want to fucking scream and kill my emotions
So that I can go back to following poetic rules

Poetic rules, yes. Just deny your pain
Make it sound prettier than it is
For it's only the other who has anything to gain
While I'm slowly breaking on the inside

Pieces of skin of my soul
Poison running its proper course
My hope burning up like coal
Till I'm a fucking corpse
Special events:

The game is based on turn-based gameplay. During every turn a special event will happen that will provide some bonuses or penalties. What the special event will be is determined by RNG. Here is a
list:

Free Move: You get one extra command point that you can use anywhere you want. This is the most common special event to happen.

Onslaught: Units will get +2 attack and +2 move on one of the three flanks for a turn.

Rally: One of your flanks will get double the amount of the maximum leadership of the hero on that flank. So to take Aragorn: if Rally happens on his flank you will get (4x2= ) 8 command points for that turn. Easily the most useful special event.

Recovery: All units on one flank recover 1-4 HP.

Disorder: The flank gets 0 command points, regardless of the hero. This is the only special event that has a penalty. Getting this special event, especially on pivotal moments, is extremely frustrating.

Willpower: Your Spirit Points meter is completely recharged and at its maximum.

Talents:

Some units have talents, which are special bonuses that unit has that seperates it from other units. Here's a list of all the talents:

Elf Archery: "Ranged attacks are never blocked by terrain."
Elven units with Range attacks can shoot enemies wherever they are, regardless of terrain. They can shoot enemies behind walls, hiding behind trees,... Very handy to have.

Magic Attack: "A powerful attack has a greater chance of stunning foes.
This talent belongs exclusively to Saruman. This talent does two things: it increases the chance of causing morale failures in any unit Saruman attacks AND it completely negates any ranged attack reduction that other units suffer from. Four tiles away or completely in front of the enemy unit? Saruman will deal just as much damage.

Double Move: "Mounted units may move, attack and then move again."
The so-called hit-and-run tactic that makes the mounted units very useful.

Sharpshooter: "Missile attack damage is never reduced by range."
This talent also negates any ranged attack reduction. Units with this talent will hit the same amount of damage regardless of where they are. A very useful talent, but all the units who have it have relatively low attack.

Regeneration: "Unit heals one Hit Point every turn."
Need I say more? This talent allows some units to become a lot bulkier the longer the battle lasts and when your units are in trouble you can just move them away and let them heal naturally. Be warned though; one HP per turn is not THAT great. I find that this talent works best on units who have only suffered minor damage.

Shock: "Attack have a greater chance of forcing units to retreat."
This talent increases the chance of causing morale failures, which makes these units a lot more valuable than you'd think.

Trample: "Mûmakil can force other units out of their path, trampling them if they can't move!"
Oh yes, you can use the giant elephant creature in the game and this talent is what makes it so powerful. The Mûmakil is four tiles big and whenever it moves any unit in its path will automatically suffer a morale failure and won't be able to act the next turn. Not only that, but when a unit can't move anymore (because it's cornered) the mûmakil will automatically kill that unit. Very handy to use on hero units.

Inaccurate: "Siege Weapons miss man-sized targets half the time."
The description of this talent is misleading. It doesn't matter what size the target is. the siege weapon will miss them half the time regardless of that. The second misleading factor is that this only counts for YOUR siege weapons. I have noticed that the enemy siege weapons hit far more often than mine. I have even played in levels where the enemy siege weapons hit (and slaughtered) my units all the time.

Shieldmaiden: "Unit does +3 damage to evil heroes."
This is a unique talent of Eowyn. With this talent her attack will get a +3 bonus whenever she attacks an evil hero. Watch out though: Eowyn is not a durable character, so chances are that the enemy will kill Eowyn as well.
LotR: The Third Age (GBA): Part 2: Events+Talents
Welcome to my game guide for the GBA game The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age. This is my favourite Gameboy Advanced game to date and even though it is rather old (it was released in 2004) it still has a lot of replay value.
The point of this game guide is to encourage other people to play it by giving information about the game, its mechanics and advice on how to win every level. Keep in mind that my way of playing the game isn't the only one, so feel free to play the game however you like. This guide is meant to serve as extra advice when you get stuck.

In part 2 of the guide I will talk about two game mechanics: special events and talents. Both of them play an important role during gameplay and because of that it's wise to understand what they really do.

Hey~~

Just wanted to thank you for the fave!

Also, since I'm currently focusing on music, I was wondering if you'd be interested in supporting me in that endeavor of mine?

If you are, I can link you to where you can find that stuff!
