So I decided to buy a Nintendo 3DS today because I really wanted to play Omega Ruby (Groudon FTW). I originally didn't want to buy one for a long time as 170 euros wasn't worth the two or three games I'd play on it (Pokémon games), but I finally caved as the Pokémon nerd in me remembered all the nostalgic memories when playing on my favourite Pokémon games, which is the Ruby/Sapphire generation.

So I go to the website of a game store nearby and find out that they have a Pokémon sale. For 209 euros I'd get a white Nintendo 3DS, Pikachu cover plates and Alpha Sapphire already downloaded. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me. But at the store the clerk told me that I wouldn't get a charger as it wasn't included (apparently they weren't included in the regular Nintendo 3DS either). He asked me if I had any other charger and I answered that I had a charger from my Nintendo DS and he said that those should work. I knew that if I wanted a new charger I would have to buy one and I didn't have enough money on me for that. I had brought enough with me to buy the Nintendo 3DS and Pokémon Y, which was around 255 euros in total mind you. Not exactly cheap...
So I come home, go about my daily routine of school work and other stuff and when evening came I decided to play Pokémon Y. After about three to four hours the batteries start dying on me, so I get my old charger to plug it in and recharge the thing. Turns out my old charger isn't compatible with the latest Nintendo console. It turns out that only the Nintendo DS Lite has a charger that is compatible with the 3DS...

So now I'm going to have to go back to the store and shell out another 8,50 euros to buy something that I feel should be included when you buy the damn thing itself. I'm not entirely sure what kind of sale tactics Nintendo is having here, but this is bullshit...
Now I would understand if the 3DS was only around 100 euros, but this thing was more expensive than the Nintendo DS when it was new... AND I got a charger with that.

Fucking greedy Nintendo... No wonder they're losing customers left and right...

TL;DR: I bought a Nintendo 3DS, they said that my old charger would work and it doesn't. Now I need to spend another 8,50 euros on something that should've been given with the Nintendo 3DS in the first place...

Anti-complaint: At least the game store isn't that far. It'll take me half an hour to go there and buy the damn charger if I bike there.

Question: The Nintendo 3DS as I got it lasted for about three and a half hours before I had to recharge it. Is this the usual amount of time that these things can work before you need to recharge it or does it last a lot longer after your first recharge?

EDIT: I've bought a charger by now, so I guess my first world problem is over. Time to continue training my Braixen.
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

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!
