    Just bought Dying Light Season Pass, The Orange Box (like finally!), Subnautica and Final Fantasy XII-2. Enough for this sale, especially considering how little time I have to play due to work etc..

    I want to look taller lol

    Came across some ideas, like special shoes and height insoles.

    Has anyone tried them before?

    I came across these ones, www.addheight.com

    Anyone?


    Honestly.. It's not really worth it. If you are a girl and wish to look taller via platform shoes, heels etc, that's fine. But for guys, you really only have insoles or shoes with thick soles to help you and the effect isn't as great as reviews and pics make them out to be.

    Even if you find one that do make you taller, it would be too sudden and people who know that you are using insoles and it might make people think that you are super insecure of your height.

    Just my 2 cents though, I have a friend who used insoles before and stopped after thinking about it and observing it's effect.

    posted a message on Living Life socially wrong

    Well, your life, your choices. But that said, some people like your parents, mentor or even friends would sometimes ask you to evaluate your choices so that you are sure of it and would not come to regret it in the future.


    I'll play devil's advocate here, since most people on this forums wouldn't like this particular opinion, but I think it is perfectly fine for people to question your life choices, be it social or lifestyle. People live their life but what they feel is the best for them and their perception on what is 'proper' and 'good' if there's such thing at all in the first place. When they see an instance where somebody defer from that, such as a person deciding to pick up smoking to relieve stress, or another who decides to go into a cut-throat industry due to their passion, they will question it and more often than not, view the choice in a condescending manner. Social wise, it is the general opinion that a person should not be a loner and integrate themselves into a wide social circle as it benefits them not only in mental health, but also careers and relationships.


    Are they wrong? No, I don't think so. People just make such remarks and questions based on their personal point of view and concern. In the end though, what matters is that you make a calculated decision and not regret your choices.


    Feels awfully close to PPNS now, oh those fond memories.

    posted a message on Terraria, is it worth the money?

    Terraria is certainly a game that many would enjoy due to the amount of stuffs it have, but as much as the fans would say that it is a no-brainer to buy it, keep in mind that with all games, there would be some that just find it to be just 'not their thing'. I myself have put in a few hours but just couldn't really get into it, though most of my friends like it, thankfully I got it at 90% off during Steam's flash sale.

    posted a message on House Plans

    Definitely lots of facepalm moments in this thread, I'm starting to wonder if this type of mentality is common.


    And I checked out OP's youtube channel too. No offence, keep doing what you want to do and have fun with it, but do not focus only on having Youtube or a country singer as a career. Expand your options and be realistic about it. Ask yourself about what strengths and skill sets you can actually attain, to provide in exchange for monetary compensation.

    posted a message on House Plans

    From what I had gathered (Low budget, no cars, no children yet etc), I suggest you to be more realistic in your planning and to not have all these rooms and facilities based on wants and "just in case' and instead, necessity and if you actually have the funds to invest into your potential property.


    If you still want to go ahead though, your best bet for getting someone to draft up these house plans would be to actually engage in architecture firms (HireDesign, FKA, GMBA etc) instead. I have friends who are licensed architects constantly laments on how potential home owners believe their work is cheap and easy, along with how annoying it is when the client seem to want everything. So I do not think anyone here who is qualified would be willing to 'help', let alone from someone who is highly unlikely to be able to actually proceed in the construction of said plans.

    posted a message on Anyone know how to end a teen existential crisis?

    Killing yourself has the tendency to be an effective long term solution to a short term problem, but there is the whole "Life is valuable, don't do it!" issue of course.


    Then there is the method of adopting a healthy diet and lifestyle as such factors actually do affect your mental state and emotions. So having a good balance diet and lifestyle would curb negative feelings that usually ends with the whole teenage existential crisis thing. Then it again it takes too much effort and most of us are too lazy or uncommitted to actually keep to that.


    There is also peer and social support, since that tends to give you purpose via bonds or even rivalry. Though that might not be possible since most teens are all special secluded little snowflakes and you can't expect them to actually give their best and not doubt others in social situations.


    Just ride it out I guess. Drugs and alcohol do bring some comfort in dark times too shall I say.


    PS: Yes, those are solutions with a pinch of sarcasm and banter at the end for the sake of humor. It's 4 a.m. and I shall do as I please for I can.

    posted a message on Need friends who can meet the requirements bellow

    Aside from the whole 'requirements to be a friend' thing going on, I find points 3 and 4 pretty amusing.


    • Must be nice ie. no bragging, no outright trolling(a little is fine, just don't be a jerk about it,) must be able to take a joke (because t here will be a lot of them aimed at you most likely,) and be patient enough to deal with Rex, must be acceptive of all of our personal problems
    • Does not mind cussing, does not mind people being a jerk

    So, wait what? Basically, don't be a jerk and be prepared to be the center of most jokes. Oh ya, you better not mind us being a jerk.


    I hope someone joins just to pick on Rex lol. You guys must be a real 'special' group.


    Maybe you guys could go check out some S&M or D/s forums. They might be more willing.

    posted a message on Boys, have you ever considered entering the girls bathroom?
    Quote from MyzticStrike»

    Yes!

    The toilets are separated by stalls anyway. What's the difference between me pooping in my bathroom at home (where my Mom and Sister do as well) and me pooping in the same room that someone at school does?

    I don't think there should be a categorization. Besides, people who are transgendered have to go into the wrong washroom every day which must be very difficult. In regard to those who think about potential sexual assault/harassment... if a person had intentions of harassing or assaulting someone in a room, the gendered sign on the door would not protect against that anyway.

    If people think safety is an issue, put locks on the stalls and raise the doors/walls up to the ceiling.


    Because there are sickos who install hidden cameras in female toilets, cases of rape and molestation, peeping, and general discomfort in having to relieve yourself at such close proximity to a opposite gender. Gender separation is needed for restrooms for both safety and comfort of the society. For transgenders or gender non-conformist, it's rather unfortunate however they would just have to make due with a choice or use those handicap toilets.

    posted a message on The Goodwill thread- Free gift games!
    Quote from AppleEater01»

    Isn't there a time lock on those region locked games? Like 2 weeks?

    As far as I can tell;

    If you are referring to being able to do cross region gifting, no.. There is no timing or period involved, I can't do it without resorting to using a VPN or something like that. To my knowledge atleast.

    If you are instead referring to the ability to gift region locked games to other within the allowed regions, it works the same way as global games. I can buy for someone directly or even gift the game. I just can't trade with it for 30 Days.

    But honestly, though I get the need for region locking, it feels that Valve once again half-assed the work. Some countries still get weird inflated prices and people who want to buy a game while overseas or for a foreign friend are just basically told to suck their thumb and deal with it.

    posted a message on The Goodwill thread- Free gift games!
    Quote from Blohod»

    Naa, just ignore people that ask and give games in goodwill when you have them, no blacklist needed.


    Well, you do have a point, having a blacklist would kind of defeat the who 'Goodwill' point of this thread. Still, it would at least filter those who do not read the rules and those who horde gifts.. Not that I have anything against someone who wishes to gift games how they would please but I just want everyone to have a fair chance to receive the kind gesture of goodwill.

    That said though, one of my favorite franchise that I have enjoyed last year is up on sale however, due to region restriction (Damn you Steam!) I can only purchase it as a gift for somebody living within Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore or Thailand. So if any one is interested in ANY game from the Tomb Raider franchise and is living in the above regions, leave a message ON THIS THREAD and let me know which game you would like! I would probably just pick randomly tomorrow when I get off work. If nobody is interested then I guess I could treat it as a discount for my next purchase lol.

    And for anyone else interested in the franchise and is looking to get into it, just fyi, while Tomb Raider 2013 is a reboot and there is absolutely no need to play the previous titles, I HIGHLY recommend that you do. Tomb Raider is all about the puzzles and the well, tomb raiding so although they may be old, it's still worth a play.

    PS: Please have a public profile so I can see what country you are from and if you have activated the game. I only mention this because I gifted a region locked copy to a guy via one of those gifting sub-reddits and he just exchange it for other stuffs.. How sad :c
