  2. Chargers are winning AFC West. Don't @ me unless they don't.
  3. I love Swordmasters, followed by Berserkers and probably Sages. Being able to double and crit everything is pretty fun. Though, Sages hit hard because most units have like no Res. I just like my units to dodge and be nukes tbh.
  4. Gonna update how I look once again cuz i'm narcissistic I got a haircut recently! Before
  5. I'll make a serious post towards this thread, since Peterson fascinated me and I never really was able to express this. Also, this is probably what you expected to hear when you made this thread lmao. I actually kind of appreciate Jordan Peterson, in the sense, that he does understand what it takes to turn yourself into a better person and doing purposeful things. I mean, it's probably expected when you've been a psychology professor for so long (at one point being an assistant professor at Harvard) and still do clinical trials. Of course, it's kind of "duh" when you listen to it. But, I'm probably stupid for not noticing the obvious sooner. That said, I don't agree with his views on women nor some of his political views, but I don't think he's necessarily toxic. It's kind of true that when Peterson discusses theories and ideas that are not rooted completely in psychology, his arguments can fall apart. His knowledge on neuroscience is pretty outdated, commonly claiming that evolution, specifically lobsters, are a reflection of the modern day "dominance hierarchy" and to an extension natural selection. His cites the injection of serotonin into lobsters makes them a lot more confident, therefore, makes them more capable to perform as evidence. However, it's a kind of reckless jump to conclusion to fit his argument, because he lacks the knowledge of the neuroanatomy of both lobsters and humans, as well as concepts in modern neuroscience for this argument to hold up. Another thing I think people misunderstand is Peterson's point towards political correctness. It's the fact that it's being forced as legislation. Now, he's being a dick to claim "I won't use a pronoun" and you have "to earn my respect to use a pronoun", but the bigger point is that it's legislation, which was the issue. It violates the basis of free speech to be "forced to speak a certain way" through government legislation, since I'm pretty sure a lot of people agree that being forced to say something should not be a power of the government. Of course, he makes the extreme argument that it could potentially lead to "Nazism", but he does have a point it is a slippery slope to have the government regulate what you say. Also, Peterson's lectures makes it clear that his idea on "order" is influenced by other things besides Christianity such as Daoism and Buddhism. But, I think his ideas are just interesting for the most part. He has a lot of good ideas, but his other ideas can be incomplete or aren't sound with modern society (mostly at his view of women). Anyways, with that out of the way, I did learn something from Peterson. This is more of a personal anecdote, but he sets these ideas in a way that are easy to understand, but complex enough for you to grasp the deeper meaning behind it. His idea on what built a meaningful life fully resonated with me, through the use of religious anecdotes was very helpful. Though, his view on a successful person is very western-oriented. I suppose being the edgy teenager that I am, made me feel that life was inherently meaningless and that just gave me a fuck ton of anxiety, and looking through countless ways to try to help myself... I kind of fell into a rut. Though, I stumbled upon Jordan Peterson on "accident" (thanks YouTube algorithm), when I went on a YouTube binge. He didn't really "transcend my understanding", like a lot of people who listen to him claim. But, he did re-adjust my worldview. He claimed that the meaning of life isn't to find happiness, which was pretty important, since whenever you feel unhappy it'll be associated with the thought "I'm failing at life." He brings a more religious point-of-view to it, which I've suppressed from my life. The religious have always stated that "life is suffering" and I've never fully grasped the meaning of that statement. But, he made it clear to me why I've avoided that meaning towards life. It's hard to accept that life is suffering, because you would need to accept a lot of responsibilities in the face of that suffering. As an extension, it is responsibility that happens to bring some sort of meaning to life. Now, why didn't I understand this earlier? That's a mystery to me. But, I'm certain this message is why people view him so positively. He emphasizes getting yourself together, and how to do that based on his observations and experiences as a psychologist, along with religious metaphors. He makes the point that way to improve the way you live is to bear your suffering and accept the shit that life throws at you. There will be a fair bit of pain along the way, but you become a reliable and respectable person if you can attempt to overcome all the things that life will do to try to fuck you over. I found applying these thoughts kind of helped me find more meaning in what I do. Of course, you should help others to alleviate suffering, you shouldn't be attempting to maximize it. But, it's quite funny how you feel the necessity to bear a load of some form to feel important. This is my serious post for the year, and I bet this is a response you wanted to hear. This is my opinion of Peterson, which is probably what op was more interested in when making this thread.
  6. Rex Glacies had met his fate. Dear Am I doing this alias thing right? You are Nihilego, otherwise known as UB-01 Symbiont. You are a Jellyfish-like Ultra Beast introduced in the Generation 7 Pokemon Game, Pokemon Sun and Moon. In the competitive scene, you are considered UU tier due to your fast speed making you a great lead along with very respectable special stats. However, you are held back but your overall physical frailty and x4 weakness to the common offensive type of Ground due to your Rock/Poison typing. (note: jiac wrote this, nobody else has a giant flavor block) Beast Boost (Passive) - Your Choice Scarf causes Beast Boost to boost your Speed on kills. When you successfully kill your target, you will have the highest priority actions the following night. Stealth Rocks/Toxic Spikes (Active): Each night, you may target an alias with either Stealth Rock, which causes anyone who targets that alias with a non-shot action to be shot, or Toxic Spikes, which causes the target to lose a BPV each night(if they start a night at 0 BPVs, it can't kill them.) You must alternate between these actions. Sludge Bomb(Factional): Shoot a player. Focus Sash(Standard): You start the game with 2 BPVs. You win if you are one of the final 3 players remaining. In other news Superstar, Judas and Right Leg of the Forbidden One have entered the game. Fellow has died.
  7. Actions have been verified. May the odds be in your favor
  8. ##VERB/SENTENCE: FENRIR AESIR d-do i just shoot?
