Heute möchte ich einen kleinen Appell an euch richten. Ich weiß, dass nicht jeder gerne Reviews schreibt und auch nicht jeder Leser einen Account hat. Aber ehrlich gesagt, ist es sehr traurig, wenn ich sehe, wie oft meine Geschichten aufgerufen werden und nichts zurückkommt. Wenn ihr wollt, könnt ihr euch meine Statistiken unter burdenofimpurity auf DA ansehen, dann versteht ihr vielleicht, was ich meine. Kleines Beispiel: im August hatte ich 19.231 Aufrufe mit 3.375 Besuchern auf nur einem (!) meiner Profile. Mag sein, dass das wenige kümmert, immerhin verdient man mit Fanfictions nichts. Aber meine Geschichten bedeuten mir trotzdem mein Leben. Soll ich sie überhaupt noch hochladen? Ich dachte so: Über 3.000 Besucher auf - einem - Profil, die passiv reagieren. Das gibt mir zu denken. Aber das nur am Rande.
Ihr wisst, viel von dem, was ich schreibe, macht das aus, was ich bin. Es sind meine Erfahrungen und Erlebnisse, die mit einfließen. Es s

Check out this video to see what I mean!
As this video says right now, J-Deite can transform from a car to a humanoid robot and move like a charm with programming through the V-Sido OS software. The product you saw in this video is just a quarter scale (1.3 Meters tall) prototype opposed to the final product they're aiming for. Hopefully by 2016 they will have completed their half scale (2.5 Meters tall) prototype and in 2020 their final 5.0 meter tall product that I think you can also ride inside of when turned into a vehicle but don't get your hopes up. I greatly anticipate progress 2 years from now which I'm sure will be worth the wait.
Whether J-Deite's any good or not we're just going to have to wait and see.

•The story stemmed from a desire to explain why Slaves International, despite being set up as the series' main villain, never made a move after the original series and why Jessica's trigger never came up again. Obviously, in the real world, no one wanted to step on ADV's toes if he ever came back to work on the series, but since he's said he plans to ignore all fan-written stories if he does return, I figure I might as well come up with an idea. I also decided to have it help bridge the gap between Jake's start of development in Summers 3 and his more mature persona I've written since Family Matters.
•It was originally Fawn in the "searching for triggers" scene, but I replaced her with Katia for some added variety and because she debuted alongside Jessica.

"Zepp... Zeeepppp?" A voice echoed.
I groaned and pulled myself up. My head ached like it had been struck by a flaming arrow. It clutched onto it and opened my eyes.
Shider looked at me... Seemingly confused. Perhaps still getting used to my new appearance. What exactly was I now? The evolved form of Riolu... Lucario?
I stared at myself in the mirror. Although I had evolved, it seemed that I still got very much hurt in the last battle.
Could be very much worse though.
I checked my messages from yesterday. I wanted to know who was next for me to kill. I never liked killing people but... I do what I have to do, I suppose.
It was a Weavile called Riki. Known for his swiftness and lethal blows. It was time again. I knew Weaviles were a bit weaker in the day, so that's when I'll fight him.
I'd slept in a bit because last night had been adsurd. It was 12:00. Perfect timing. I flexed my new body and started the match.

So, Chrysler is beginning to turn around...the Fiat portion is, anyway. They managed to get back into the stock market, selling about $9.00 or so per stock. It's not bad, but considering they weren't even in the running for seven years, they've got a long way to go. I don't care about them. They make stupid cars, and the only car they do make that's good, Jeep, is not even that big. Honestly, they should just go bankrupt. GM and Ford are good enough for us.

Dragon Age Inquisition: Theories and Predictions Hello everyone.

I am SOOOOOO excited for the next installment in the Dragon Age franchise, Inquisition which is coming out on November 18th (so I heard, could be wrong). My hopes for this game are set really high for it. Mainly because it's a been a pretty long time since Dragon Age 2 was released (4 years I believe) plus the trailers really show much change in the game series. I only saw a little but of a gameplay a while back and I can say that the combat has really changed. First from being basic, practical fighting and shooting from Origins and Awakening. Then to smashing, blasting, and being a complete beast in 2. And now ripping your opponents apart with sequenced attacks.
What really got me excited was that they brought back the race selection wh

The reasons why there will never be a ‘perfect’ body.
A study by Michaela Beddis.
Throughout the world, through all of time, there have always been different views and opinions on what an attractive body is. In times of famine and malnourishment it was seen as attractive to be overweight- as it meant you weren’t sick. But then, later through history, to be beautiful was to wear corsets because it meant you had ‘high morals’. In these days there wasn’t much too influenced body image, but things have changed since then. Thanks to technology the world has become ‘smaller’ and we are able to talk to people from almost anywhere on Earth from our living rooms. This means we see more cultures and hear more opinions on ‘the perfect body’, even if we don’t realise it.
There are 2 main factors that determine whether a body is ‘desirable’ or not. The first being, is it ‘fit for pu

My name is John. In the Old World, I was a work-at-home socially disconnected millionaire Liberal with Socialist tendencies. I thought they were just fools, leading us on to oppress minorities and stop the lively globalist paradise led by Google and it's partners. The truth is blinding. President Obama's policies have failed the American people.
It all started in 2014, when the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria first started their conquests in the Mid. East – just a little ethnic squabble, as the smart people all said. Everyone around me rallied in patriotism, arming their sons and daughters with all sorts of weapons to sort themselves into the long lines which clustered in front of the local Recruitment Office. We were seeing a new supreme dedication to the American cause upon us like just after Pearl Harbor, Liberty quick as ever to stand and save our allies.

A Message to all Christians Hey there, dA. There's not gonna be much of an intro this go around, I'm just gonna cut straight to the chase. *Camera cuts to a chase seen between Crimson and Yonder* *JK*A Message to all Christians1 day ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Anyway, I'm gonna focus on a topic that's been bugging me for a while now... Look, I'm all for freedom of speech. I love to talk, debate, even argue my thoughts and opinions on things. I like running into conflict when my beliefs and such don't match up with someone else. I see it as a challenge of sorts. But all of that aside, I try very hard to not tell people how to live their lives. It's their life after all, not mine. If they decide to do something ignorant or juvenile, that's their own fault.
I figured this philosophy was shared by others, but that doesn't seem to be the case. I find a lot of Christians who try to butt into others lives, get involved in things that have nothing to do with them. Time and time again, I see Christians yelling at other people that t
Christians, Jesus' death, Paradise and MoralityThe death of our lord Jesus Christ, highest act of redemption of a human being ever suffering and guilty, never capable of responsibility, set a precedent. Far from being an act of mercy, it is a release from the pain and torture of existence, the egoism of an incarnated god. The promise of Paradise makes the sacrifice doubly immoral: first, because every love demonstration satisfies our egoes in the first place (we won’t do anything that we don’t deem pleasurable to us, or at least we wouldn’t choose the worst between two harms, i.e. we will always choose the most pleasurable option); second, because the expectation of a better afterlife goes along with the arithmetics of what we can gain and what we can loose. Sounds a lot like capitalism, mhm? The so called ethic action should be instinctual, or anti-instincts, because the first objective of an animal is survival, and giving away our lives goes against our nature. Yet again, paradise makes all that worthless. But IChristians, Jesus' death, Paradise and Morality3 days ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This

Just like the last few previous Pay-Per-Views, Hell In A Cell had absolutely little to no storylines whatsoever, and the matches were as boring and as repetitive as ever.

What I want to see in Season 5 of MLP FiMAn episode about the death of a loved one. Maybe Pinkie and one of her parents? I don't know who. A "What If" episode depicting what each character will be like in the future, like how The Simpsons did.An episode dealing with racism. And for all you saying out there that it's just a kids show, yes it is. But it has some very mature moments. An episode where one of, if not all of, the CMC get their cutie mark. The return of Maud.The return of the Diamond Dogs or Windigoes. An episode that's kind of like Nightmare On Elm Street. Luna gets taken over by Nightmare Moon and controls the dreams of the ponies to exploit their fears. A villain that doesn't get killed by The Elements Of Harmony.More musical episodesAnother "What If" episode where it parodies film noire, all taking place in Pinkie's mind, when she tries to find who stole Twilight's book.A Doctor Who crossover episodeAnother superhero-based episodeWhat I want to see in Season 5 of MLP FiM5 days ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This

The facts however are quite far from what is generally known or believed to be true. There are many stories and myths created through sheer imagination by writers who have used them rampantly to draw publicity to their books. In many cases, the facts got blurred. But one thing which is beyond doubt is, far too many incidents have taken place in this area for it to be ignored casually or interpreted to be just another normal ocean area. This is a account of what-seems-true facts about disappearances
The disappearances have mostly taken place near the southern boundary of the triangle between Florida and Puerto Rico. You can always argue that it's obvious because that's where the area of the triangle is widest and therefore such possibilities should be more anyway! But the area is not as simple as it appears in the picture above. Here are some of the most amazing stories of planes and ships that disappeared while crossing the triangle area.

Hey I’m here to write an article on Bermuda triangle revealing its secrets.
Bermuda triangle: The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil's Triangle, is a loosely defined region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean, where a number of aircraft and ships are said to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances.
Official identity: According to the US Navy, the triangle does not exist, and the name is not recognized by the US Board on Geographic Names. In a 2013 study, the World Wide Fund for Nature identified the world’s 10 most dangerous waters for shipping, but the Bermuda Triangle was not among them.
Popular folklore: Popular culture has attributed various disappearances to the paranormal or activity by extraterrestrial beings. Documented evidence indicates that a significant percentage of the incidents were spurious, inaccurately reported, or embel

1. Why should the boxsets even fucking matter, what lots of people are actually looking for is how good the plot, characters, and everything else that makes a decent story.
2. Harry Potter had come before Twilight, so HOW can a book series that CAME AFTER Harry Potter be a rip-off? And finally, the author has admitted that she likes Harry Potter, and took some details.
3. Same here as numbero uno, but just take the boxset thing and replace it with the logo thing.
4. Both series have been accused of promoting evil by many church groups. Finally I think Harry Potter has a better message than Twilight, which could just be plain summed up by namy haters like, "Bella meets Edward and lots of pretty boys, Bella wants to kill herself because Edward broke up with her, Bella gets engaged to Edward, and then she pops out a hybrid baby out of her vag and a battle happens and happily ever after."
