Omg you didn't just post that O_O

It. Is. SO. Embarrasing!

 

On topic: Please all stop buying danish pork! It has MRSA's and if you all boycut it, the lobby organisations will be defeated and we can free the pigs.

Remember: Danish pork has MRSA! (edit: I'm not kidding, this stuff can kill you!)

 

Thank you Sweden for being such a good country, will you adopt me?

Serana then vote for the "we want out" parties ;)

Or some far-left wing party, since often they ask the questions needed to be asked (I suppose the same if true for far-right, but they also often smell like nazism :/)

Nuin, I was STRICTLY referring to Romanian politicians, not to European ones and not to other countries.

I have no reason to vote on Sunday, not because I want out of Europe but because all my (national) options are thieves.

This, of course, is NOT Europe's fault.

 

In fact, it's quite the opposite: the only reasons that Romania does something against corruption are "suggestions" received from Europe :)

And no, in Romania there is no "we want out" party, at least officially.

Oh... ok I see how it's bad then...

Actually I think we ought to be allowed to vote for any candidate within the EU, since they all decide for all of us :)

Maybe there is a german politician I think represents me better, than any of the danish ones.

That would maybe solve, and make for very long voting slips, and we would be confused with propaganda :P

From what I read the meat itself "should be okay" if the animal was properly butchered. ...but the "should be" kinda makes me wonder. Reminds me of Murphy's Law: Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong eventually. :ph34r:

 

I guess I should be happy that I rarely ever eat pork, Danish or otherwise. Definitely gonna steer clear now; multi-resistant bacteria is the one looming threat that everyone seems to ignore. Things are gonna suck so bad once antibiotics stop working. :(

Well, that kind of wording, and the lobby organisation doing what it can to direct attention to other things and saying "But danish pork does not contain salmonella" would make me stop buying danish pork emidiately. As a danish blogger and farmer said "Who wants to be the proof?" ;)

 

I think it's so scary noone seems concerned with this at all.

I can be contained and elliminated, it's been done here before.

And we can prevent it from happening again by restricting the use of broad-spectrum antibiotics (and start treating the pigs and other farmed animals better).

But noooo that will cause growth to halter.

Careful what you wish for, bacteria grows too O.o

 

We vegs call it "The revenge of teh Pigs" though, and is being all dark humored about it.

It is logic that someting like this would happen if you look at the world and how we think we can fuck it over for profit.

 

On that note: Who was the hero of "12 Monkeys"?

Funny text on official forum:

 

 

It was August 14th 2001 when it happened. I had met a beautiful young adventurer named Jenni'baby in the MMO, Asheron's Call. We hit it off and began a very intense cyber session near the lighthouse in the town of Arwic. It was amazing. She was saying all the right things and I thought I had met the girl of my dreams.

That was until she (he) said this. "Copperfield, I'm going to show you the longest enchanted sword you've ever seen in your life"...

I nearly fainted.

I was traumatized for years. I started studying the behavioral patterns of female characters and created a guide to ensure that this wouldn't happen to anyone else. Without further ado, here is Copperfield's guide to telling if that if that female character is actually a female in real life.


1. Pay close attention to grammar. Real life females rarely use shorthand. If you ask a female character how she's doing and her response is "I M fine How r u?".. It's a male.
2. Pets. Male gamers may collect pets for achievement purposes, but we will never have them out. If you see a female character running around with a pet monkey following her, it's probably a real life female.
3. Ask a female character to join you for some PVP. If she starts whining and making excuses after dying, it's a male.
4. Say something funny and get her to laugh. Female players tend to go with hehe and male gamers go with haha. Female gamers also love to use caps and exclamation points. If you say something funny and she responds with LOL! It's probably a real life female.
5. Real life female won't announce in the main communications channel that they are female. If you see a female character searching for a guild like this, "Level 21 Nightblade looking for an active guild so she doesn't have to play alone", it's a male.
6. Real life females NEVER quest alone. If you see a female character out in the wilderness doing a quest and she's alone, it's a male.
7. Smiley faces. Everyone uses them, but real life females will use them more often. Males tend to go with the boring and quick smile.gif. Real life females will get creative and use blush.png or smiley.png
8. Real life females don't curse in game. If you see a female character acting like this is Grand Theft Auto, it's a male.



This is just a small sampling of my guide. When it's used effectively, it's 97.6% accurate in discovering males who are pretending to be real life females.

Thank you for reading and please be careful. I don't want anyone to go through what I went through on August 14th, 2001.


-Sir Copperfield.

Good guide. I'll have to swear more! -ups

 

Is wondering why a male person wants to pretend be a rl female, and go and have virtual sex with someone? I'm very baffled about this and have pondered about it before, since this "oh no, I had virtual sex with a male, whom I thought was a female!" story was told to me the first time.

 

Also does it happen as often as it seems to be reported?

 

And why does it matter if the sex was fun and did something for you?

 

It's all so confusing to me, please someone explain :)

Actually I did pretend for 1,5 years to be a RL female in a past MMO.

I even posted daily on forum (you know I write much), taking BIG precautions to not forget the "a" which is common for romanian words when the text is written by a female.

It's much more difficult to do it in romanian, compared to english.

Of course, rule number 1: NO TeamSpeak or at least no microphone :P

It was kinda fun in the beginning but it becomes tiring after a while.

I know, I know, I'm crazy :)

 

P.S. Does this count as RP experience? :P

Serana, and what your wife thinks of you pretending to be a girl? :)

 

I don't get the whole idea of virtual sex and all that virtual relationships. It makes me laugh, nothing more. That's why I don’t have personal account in any social network.

For me it's easier and more pleasant to meet someone, lets say in the supermarket and have real conversation. But for Danish girls it's probably sort of harassment. :D Isn't it, Nuin?

I'm quite observant and shrewd, 15 mins RL conversation will tell me more about the person then a month of texting.

You can come talk to me at supermarkets any day Flavia :) I think we do that way too little here

Just, well, don't start the conversation with "Hello sexy lady" or something similar ;) if you don't want to be kicked on your shins :D

'Hey sexy lady' is definitely not my style.

I will approach prepared. I will scout you and especially your shopping cart. I will try to figure out what you like. I will wedge in very gently. I will politely ask some advice about the goods and nutrition. I will listen to you carefully and agree with everything. I will be very thankful and supporting. Your time and opinion are extremely important for me. I will let you feel appreciated and smart... Oh, probably it's a bad idea to tell all these things to you. Ah, whatever, you can judge me.  :D Would you fell for such move?

You won't scare me with some low kick. My pain threshold is very high, also I dodge well.  :P

As long as you are a feminist, try the same thing yourself.

Hahahhaha

I will most definitely think I'm in some hidden camera joke if anyone approached me that way! No one does that unless it's a joke, but then again, if you really sought advise or thought me cute, it's silly you can't approach me in that way without being judged weird. However, there's a lot of acting in your writing, and I believe if you didn't genuinely think my advice good, I would see through it, and I'm sorry, compliments work only if they come from a point of truth. And don't agree with everything, it's so obviously an act. What I mean is, be genuinely interested, since there must be some interest in the first place, work from that...

But points for not being a "gamer" with the neg-compliments, that's the worst kind of bullshit ever. If anyone tells me I'm "insert something negative + something to make it seem positive" as a compliment I would throw a drink at them, even if I had to buy one first :P

Gosh, woman, you ripped me apart. :D Any other guy can feel depressed after such crushing blow. :P

 

You can say all this things only when you already know the game, it's seems so obvious to you right now. It's totally different when you are played. Enemy at the gate, no time to regroup - your mind will be busy with other things (flour, sugar, beans, nuts, pocket-guide 'How to be a feminist'), there is no time to assess the situation and rethink it, you are simply not prepared. It's like an ambush on a hunt but very smooth one. :)

 

You got a lot of aspects right. Everything must look truthfully. It's super easy to overact. Nevertheless, even if you are caught, the game isn't over.

I will try to explain the rest. You need a lot of confidence to do everything firm and innocent at the same time. Even if you act totally truthfully and honestly, lack of confidence will kill you. Confidence is not about what you say, it's about how you say it and how you look. I still need to work on that. Practice can give you a lot of confidence. At some point you may understand, there is nothing, literally nothing to fear and you will gain freedom to act exactly as you want.

Shopping cart tells so-so much about the person. Of course, you don't have to approach to any girl, you both must share something in common. Right questions generate interest and emotional contact. Try to predict the answers before she even says anything. You find and reveal shared points of interest. That's why you can most certainly agree with her. People connect when they share same experiences, obstacles, beliefs, expectations. This can lead to sympathy. Walk away if you don't share anything with this person, you obviously suck in scouting.

Yes, there can be a small simulation, but I will never lie. Women are not dumb chicks (danish feminist taught me that :) ). Almost all of them recognize the game sooner or later, but it doesn't mean they have to turn it down. Play along, if you really like the guy and the acting is smooth. Or you don't know what romance is? It can be somewhat similar to your favorite RP.

 

Sometimes I like to play in such games. It's sort of challenge for me. I know we are talking about different situations, danish women are nowhere near my native girls. I met only swedish, I find them more cautious and demanding. I guess danish are somewhere near, correct me if I'm wrong.

Why the games?

I don't get it.

You realize the women you play these games at, are real people right?

I'm really baffled about this, I thought you where joking? Now I think you are not... If you are not, you know that this is objectifying women right? This you describe is like the prototype O_O are you trolling me?

Do you want to talk to these people, just talk to them?

You, the person you are, gets lost behind all these smooth-talk-acting and no one will see you. So if you are looking for a partner this way, your doing it wrong.

If you are looking for sex... really at the supermarket? The supermarket is like the last place to think about sex, your wares are melting, your shoulders ache, you want to get home and eat the strawberries. Don't believe adds, suggestive images and porn, it is fantasyworlds of men. Also there's apps or internet for finding people who wants sex with you.

Maybe he doesn't look for either partner or sex. Maybe he's just flirting to practice his hunting skills :)

But it's not flirting, it's acting O.o

I really hope it's because I don't understand something.

If you flirt with someone do it genuinely! There is no need to act or pretend. If you think a woman has nice eyes, tell her flirtingly. Don't make up all other kinds of stuff too, it's not needed to establish contact.

It's fine to look at peoples wares to get an idea who they are, we all do that when we look at people, and we all signal some way or other who we are, but why all the drama about it? If you talk to me about veggies and how you love them, and your basket is full of bacon, you are not fooling anyone. I can analyze too you know, I'm human with the same kind of brain as you. I can also tell if you act-flirt with me, and I'll raise my eyebrow at you in a "wtf is with your bad acting job" manner.

 

What hunting? Is he going to kill people? If so something is very wrong here!

Am I a deer who is to be shot and placed on a wall to show off to others?

Arrrggggg.... can't you see it's objectifying?

 

You are trolling right? Right? O_O RIGHT?

Oh, Nuin-Nuin, sometimes you are overthinking everything way too much.

Of course I am trolling you. :D But, as I said in other topic, there is always a truth near by. :wink2:

 

I really do similar things, but very rarely for self amusement. If danish feminist says it's bad, I will stop it.  :)

 

Serana got my motive right. Due to my job I often talk to strangers. At some point I've realized that I can freely talk to anyone anywhere. Each year I take part in several exhibitions and conferences - huge amount of totally different people in only few days. Extremely exhausting activity. I clearly understand that I don't have time or need to be friends with all these people. I even truly despise some of them. Nevertheless, I need to put on some sort of mask and get results. I need to blend in with everybody in short period of time and believe me, it's impossible without a simulation. I know, it's hard to understand, but that is the true reason why I've learned to socialize in totally different way - I am playing and pretending from time to time. Even my own mother can't tell when I am lying. I can look straight into her eyes and she still won't figure it out. Of course I mean no harm and simply tease or joke around.

If you will communicate with me long enough, you will probably see that I can sound weird, because of conflicting personalities inside of me.

Don't be afraid, I'm not evil. Yeah, I know the game rules and I have some cunning skills, but I don't abuse it. Weapon itself is not a threat, but evil person with a weapon is.

 

If you think a woman has nice eyes, tell her flirtingly. Don't make up all other kinds of stuff too, it's not needed to establish contact.

A compliment from stranger is a road to nowhere. You totally didn't get basic principles of the move. With a girl I don't make up stuff. You already have tons of stuff. I simply find what seems similar and connect it with my stuff.  :) Same emotes, feelings, beliefs have very powerful bound.

I'm so glad I misunderstood :)

And I'm glad you trolled me :P I'm so easily trolled omg O.o

 

But now you add a context that makes more sense, or give sense.

And well I do that every day at work, since I'm a teacher -try to find some common ground with the young adults even though you could rip their heads off for once again being a teenager with a teenager attitude. Sometimes you have to fake to care, because some of them needs the caring but has such go-away attitudes. I find it it works best if I'm naive and considerate to them. I've had young men who are way taller than me come to me and be very apologetic about handing in empty papers because I used that "fake" strategy, but I believe it works better than if I scold and punish. I only think it works though, because I genuinely want them all to do well.

 

And it's good to be able to talk to all kinds of people, regardless of who they are or how different from you. No harm in that.

 

I probably jump to certain conclusions because you hear these damn stories about those GAMES played to seduce women. Such stories make us suspicious and perhaps a little bit paranoid ;)


So tonight is the perfect night to get your character bitten by a werewolf or vampire: friday 13th and a fullmoon O_O
