Reality Check . . . Diagnostic 1[Note the last paragraph] When someone is pushed to their limits, they can change. Subtly most of the time, kind of like a bend or tint to their personality. These changes tend to be temporary, although the length of time is indeterminate. It could be related to status quo that had great importance and was altered, restoring it may reverse the change quicker.Reality Check . . . Diagnostic 11 year ago in Personal More Like This
But if they are pushed beyond said limits however, expect much more than a slight alteration to their persona. Some aspects can become exaggerated to worrying levels, or may stop being detectable at all. Or they could shift an idea set entirely, not necessarily reversed though. These kind of changes rarely revert back to the original state, as the cause is mostly impossible to negate, at least from the afflicted's point of view.
The kinds of changes vary insanely, mainly on a per person basis. As each is unique both in personality and situation. But such alterations can be categorized by; tics, mentality. Tics such as a
We have returned [Mk1]Although I would like to leave my past behind me, somebody has to keep bringing it with 'well what if it went like this?'. Family can be the biggest irritation in life, and because of legal issues problems take 5 times longer than they should. However the fastest solutions would be more than ethically dangerous.We have returned [Mk1]1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Okay, with a little ventilation we shall move on to other issues. I should be-able to pick up on the characters next week, and as some have noticed, I'm already back yet still sporadic. The Mk1 is to note for future references when I cannot be here as a daily basis. I'm not mad at anyone here, just irked at how much society has collapsed driving relatives against each other.
And for some reason I cannot gather my thoughts, It could be that I'm getting back to my regular caffeine and that I've missed a night's sleep. I find it interesting how resilient the mind is to stressors but fragile to shocks. An organic combination of glass and rubber; strong yet pliable, britt
Avengers Assemble!Ok.. first thoughts....Avengers Assemble!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I mean.. DAMN! It was hands down the best movie I have seen in a very long time!
Just amazingly epic. Captain America was amazing, Thor kicked ass, Iron man was laugh out loud funny... Black Widow showed she had the chops and Hawkeye was just awe inspiring....
And the Hulk...
Dont even get me started on how ballsbustingly badass the Hulk was.
But the one who stole the movie for me... Loki... Holy hell, that guy just oozed epicness.
And what Hulk did to him is a moment that will go down in geek history.
After credits was amazing, and seeing the next Big Baddy (No spoilers here) just made my geek heart all aflutter!
SO looking forward to more Marvel movies!
Another thing that made this movie so amazing.... is not believing it actually happened... i mean.. in my lifetime.. An actual Avengers Movie! HELL YES!
Whedon is a geek god, and he has my respect.. So in terms of the next Avengers movie, if they get Whedon to do it.. I just gotta say one thing... in

These past couple of weeks have been interesting; being a gamer growing up I've gathered various tastes for gaming. I like solo-ing challenges but team work tends to be more fun. When I need to fit a particular role, I am an extremist, I put all my resources into it. If I have an advantage, I exploit it and increase it, even sacrificing other resources to do so.
If I'm a tank, I walk into trouble and it backs off. But I'm slow.
If I'm an idiot, expect me to die frequently. Which is more often then I'd like.
If I'm a dps, I cut down anyone foolish enough to stay near me. But I'm fragile.
If I'm a ninja, nothing can catch me nor run from me. But I'm not a ninja.

Okay, so this isn't exactly a journal entry. But since I can't be bothered to figure out how to post inline images in the commentary section of regular image posts, you're getting this. Deal with it.
In my perpetual state of ultimate lazyness, this image has been bouncing around for a while, and I'm just now getting around to posting it. And I've had a fair number of questions. So, I think I'll take this opportunity to walk you through some of the happy accidents that fill the days of us artists. That's right, Bob Ross may be the only one who owns up to it, but we all have them.
To me, the most important thing in art is making decisions. In fact, you can break my art philosophy into a tidy little three step triad. Observations -> evaluations -> decisions. That's the important stuff. Everything else is just about
Emotional Impacts from Movies and TV.I have two personal favorites...Emotional Impacts from Movies and TV.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The first is from the movie Blade Runner. Roy Batty saving Decker from the roof and his quote.... the music, the staredown, and then Roy stating: "Ive seen things you people wouldnt believe... attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've seen C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tanhauser gate... and all these moments... will be lost, in time...like..tears in rain. Time to die."
And then he dies.... it was a moment of pure emotional awesomeness.
My second is from the TV anime series Robotech. Rick Hunter is in his bunk listening to noise coming from his neighbor Max, who had just gotten married to Miriya. She cooked the coffee pot... but as Rick is laying there, he starts to think to himself...
"Roy, you used to tell me, that before you could love someone, you have to like them first... I like Lisa.. I think I.. oh I dont know.. Im so tired... I'll think I'll just....."
And then he was asleep, and the camera pans over to the stars ou
asl?On my own website, I encourage people to be rather open with at least basic personal information. Age, sex, country, and even the 'temperaments' of their personality are shown on every comment, meaning you can get an idea of the 'sort of person' commenting at a glance without actually knowing them personally...asl?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
But it seems that this is rare, and most sites don't even list gender or age except perhaps on profile pages that you have to manually navigate to, and even then you can never be sure.
Coming to sites like this one after spending much of my time on my own makes me feel almost 'blind' or something, not being able to see that information without visiting profiles. Some people don't even have that information on their profiles.
I personally think that every community would be improved by making this kind of personal information open and clear and displaying it readily and frequently, such as on every comment.
Some might think that that would lead to shallow judgements... and yes, i

So i told the boss that we're looking for a house - just to make conversation - and he said i can have access to the real estate data website.
Do you know what this means?!? this means i can access all the history on certain properties.....i think i'm in love with my boss (sorry friend who is a boy who i'm dating)
I can see how long properties have been on the market, who owns it, block size, sale history...everything. Soon i will know everything and soon i will possess everything and soon i WILL RULE THE WORLD! MAHAHAHAHAHAH *weeze*
Hopefully with my new world domination useful website access i can get a good deal on our first home.

kitten rescue!!WE RESCUED A KITTEN TODAYYY!!#(@#!*kitten rescue!!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Last night there was a huuuge wind and thunder storm here. Then early this morning, we heard crying/screaming coming from the top of our grapefruit tree! After searching, we found a kitten tangled at the top! T___T We got a ladder and rescued him and brought him inside. He had thorns and blood on him, but we took care of his wounds and fed him. He's okay now and sleeping peacefully. How did he get up there?!
Looks like we have another baby to take care of.
I swear, we will never have to actually purchase an animal...they just fall into our care so randomly. o_o;
This is the third cat/kitten that we've recently rescued. You may remember:
Chiba, the abandoned kitten we rescued.
Vincent, the wounded cat we rescued who was shot with a bb gun.
Both are healthy, spoiled and sassy grown cats now. ^___^
This new little baby is going to receive a lot of love. He's a fussy little thing...

The team was worried that the players who aren't used to play action games might get frustrated with more difficult enemies and thus loose the joy in gaming - eventually perhaps abandoning Rising completely.
Easy Assist Mode will be on when you play the game as Easy.

And there's yet another video for our joy.

The next CW would be expected on the 26th of December, but since most of you - including me - will be rather busy then, I move the 13th CW to the 2nd of January, with ghost theme!
