I take it you enjoy the kind of games that have the sort of impactful experience that no decent person wants to spoil? They're the kind of games I love as well. Fair warning: OneShot is an adventure-puzzle game, not an RPG. It rarely holds your hand, so some of the puzzles may take a while. Btw: >Also helps that I trust your opinion on things. I'm flattered, thank you! =) Anyway, if you're into games like these, get hyped for OMORI: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erzgjfU271g https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nV0BST2nifk It will supposedly release sometime this year. This game will probably be huge, so keep an eye out. =P Edit: I'm aware you're a lurker, but dang, you only post a few times a month? You have more self-control than I do, haha.

First, I love super meaningful games. Impactful. I treasure emotional experiences in gaming very heavily, though I certainly haven't played nearly enough of those sorts of games!. And about it not holding your hand: that makes me happy honestly. I mean I love RPGs of course, but that makes me more excited to have some challenging puzzles! And oh my god you have no idea just how hyped seeing those trailers. I am now on high alert for OMORI. The art style especially intrigues me! I have played and loved a fair number of RPG Maker horror games. There is just...something special to me when a game in such a style is able to make me feel creeped out and jumpy. Takes something special to achieve that atmosphere without resorting to realism, in my opinion! Sorry I could honestly gush forever about this topic, haha! I honestly need to delve more into these sorts of games. I just have so much on my backlog for all kinds of games.... (And yes, I somehow manage not to post much, but I certainly still do lurk more than I probably should considering I haven't even played League in forever even though I can't help but look up news and updates for it)
: Well... I just had an experience. This is one of the best hidden gems I've ever played.
Great, seeing this I'm very tempted to impulse buy it. It sounds exactly like the kind of thing I love. Also helps that I trust your opinion on things.

The Atelier series. There's a ton of them, too. I own all but the latest one that's been released in NA and still need to play through half of them. Love them to pieces. (first one released in NA) https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/8/81/Atelier_Iris.jpg/250px-Atelier_Iris.jpg

: Is death a bad thing?
The way I see it, yeah you're right overall. I wouldn't necessarily call it a positive. Just a thing that will happen. Everyone dies. That being the case, no point to rushing or fearing death. You'll know eventually so just enjoy this life while you have it. If there's something special after death such as an afterlife of some sort then neat, I'll find out at that time! The death of others, however, is rather sad to me because you can never see them again as they were. I personally can only hope that there is a way I'll be able to meet those I care about again in another life, realm, whatever may happen.

Did you have some kind of meal plan you made for yourself or did you just wing it and count calories as you went? Initially it was very difficult. Because I used to eat a ton of carbs. Sure I'd eat veggies and meat but my meals almost always consistently had carbs galore. As of now, I go grocery shopping once a week but that's because I have to with the kids and what not. I'd prefer to only have to go 1-2 times a month but I don't have the storage space for that, at least not in my fridge and freezer. Come tax return time, I'm definitely going to invest in a much larger fridge and probably build in a pantry in my kitchen for additional storage space. But to answer your question, it didn't really change my routine of grocery shopping because I was already in a routine. As for how often I eat? I eat a bowl of oatmeal in the morning, one packet (120 Calories). I will usually eat an apple or a pear before I go to work, the calories there are negligible - 100 at the most. Because of my condition, I eat a lot of salty things to retain sodium so I usually portion out a cup and a half of Chex mix, pretzels and peanuts. The Chex mix is about 120 calories and I'll have two snack portions of that, one around 5pm and one around 9-10pm. For diner, I do a lot of fish and chicken with sides of broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and celery. And I'll add some baked apples with a little cinnamon, which is pretty good. Or I'll do some chicken salad. Today I'm actually marinating some chicken breasts in a little soy sauce, olive oil (a very small portion), paprika, seasoned salt, pepper and cumin. I'll fry it for a few minutes just to give the outside that nice texture then bake it - it remains pretty moist this way too. And then I'll get some romaine lettuce, some kayle and spinach and I'll mix this up with some low fat feta and Parmesan cheese. Add some chicken, two tablespoons of dressing and some crutons and I've got a pretty bangin salad for the next 2-3 days. So I definitely have planned this out quite a bit and having a plan helps. It is very difficult to stick to initially because call it what you want but if you're like me, going from 3200 or so calories a day to 900-1200, you're going to feel like you're starving yourself and it sucks. But it gets better and you get used to it pretty quickly. Idk what others do but I do give myself the liberty of a cheat day every once and awhile, it makes sticking to the diet much easier. I went to a little Chinese buffet the other day and had a bunch of sushi, shrimp, chicken and rice. Yolo'D thay shit, i was so full lol

I suppose I should break down and plan out some meals and make more proper grocery lists. I've only semi-planned and I keep running out of ingredients during times I just honestly don't feel like shopping and I end up either not eating or cheating. I do at least have a designated cheat day once a week, though that may be much it has helped me from breaking down more frequently. Also what you're having today sounds delicious, I might have to try that meal sometime!
: I've lost 30 pounds in the span of a month, AMA
I've actually recently started that sort of diet and it certainly works, but not gonna lie, I've always hated shopping and on such a diet I have to go grocery shopping a lot...curious how often you had to buy your food. Also, how often did you eat a day? I've had a difficult time completely sticking to it and figuring out exactly what to eat each day. Did you have some kind of meal plan you made for yourself or did you just wing it and count calories as you went?

: I don't feel happiness anymore
One of the toughest things to realize when you want to help others is that you have to help yourself first. It's very difficult to put others' problems on your shoulders when your own are already causing you to crawl. I personally am on Sertraline and it's worked wonders. I'm sad that it didn't have the same effect on you, though I wonder how long you were on it? It took a number of months and slowly increasing dosage for it to make a big difference. One of my current policies, which I try to adhere to even if it's difficult is this: Do not worry about what you can do nothing about at this moment in time. Focus on the things you CAN do and accomplish. As someone else said: one step at a time. I wish you and your brother luck. There is happiness and light in the littlest things even if they are hard to see. There must certainly be happiness in TheLittlestLulu as well.

I like a fair number of tattoo designs and such, but I wouldn't want something so permanent. If anything, I'd be okay with temporary tattoos, like henna, sometimes though I've only ever gotten one henna tattoo like...when I was in early high school or something. I'm also a wuss when it comes to pain.

Striving to be better and such is fine and a great thing, I agree. However, there's nothing wrong with being happy with where you are, how far you have gotten, and with the ideas you have of where you'd like to go. Too many people focus on what they don't have instead of what they do have and even could have. I've learned that it's okay to be happy and content in the present even if one still has many problems, goals, and dreams. Happiness is a state of mind and only we have control over our own mind, as much as it may not seem like it at times. That's what I believe.

: Windows 10 is downloading updates automatically
Do you have a wireless connection? You can probably do it directly connected, just don't know if the interface in settings changes. Anyway, go into network settings, Wi-Fi (for me, usually starts there) Go to Advanced options Turn Metered connection on Usually for me it won't download unless you tell it to, since metered connection limits that sort of automatic download. It didn't seem to affect much else, so I'd say give it a shot. I hope I explained that well enough...haha.
: There should be an option to hide mastery emotes
Muting definitely stops emotes. At least it stops their sounds. You can still see the animation, though. (Unless they changed this for some reason?) So I suppose that's why the mastery emote still shows. I haven't played in a while, so I don't know if the mastery emote's sound is muted at least. Edit: Ah I see that link above. I guess it stopped working? That really sucks then.
: I feel like i should just afk in an ARAM
Not gonna lie, it's amusing when I'm the one with Garen and a little bit into the game when I get low in a fight, I back off and heal to full in less than a minute. But yes, it's rather bullshit in ARAM, though I have beat Garens with a decent enough team plenty. Or maybe they were just bad Garens. Dunno.
: I think I am done trying to look for someone in my life, or at the very least internet dating
Sometimes I find it's better for some people to just not actually LOOK and the right person will come along. I know a lot of people hate that sort of thing, but it really does happen. Happened to me after all, and online to boot. It can work. So I think you're doing the right thing for you right now, good luck! As for #4, it's sad but you can't force people to do something. What I will say, however, is if you haven't tell him that no one has the right to be abused whether they made a mistake or not. It sadly seems way too common for the victims to blame themselves. He needs to stop taking the blame and go to the police. Needs to listen to those who actually care about him. I hope he listens and sees the light within the darkness.

I've honestly debated getting a bamboo pillow at one point, but I kept seeing very mixed opinions and was swayed away. I don't know if that's because some people got faked ones or something like that, though. Hard to tell sometimes. To OP: I totally understand the predicament. I'm someone who actually sleeps in all positions, though mostly on my side. I'm a massive toss and turner a lot of the night. I recently got a new memory foam pillow that also has down-like filling around it to be both soft and supportive (Biosense is the brand)...while it's better than the pillow I had previously as that one was wearing down...it's still not the most comfortable...and I can't quite afford to just go out and buy another random pillow to try that *might* be great. Auuughhh.
: Why do people accuse politicians of pandering?
The real problem is the fact it seems to be expected and often accepted...or at least tolerated. It'd be nice to have some actual honesty about what they want, plan, associate with, etc etc, but nope. Pandering. Never know what you're actually going to get. I also personally feel there is a difference between appealing to a demographic vs pandering to them.

I personally got an S7 after it went on sale with a term contract not too long after its release. Right before that I was looking at the S6, but ultimately grabbed the S7 because I don't plan to get another phone for a few more years again. If that's one of if not your only best option, I'd say go for it. I really like the galaxy phone line. I had the S3 for a while before it really needed replacing. I had looked up quite a bit on the S6 and it seemed to be a well-liked phone. But don't get the edge. The "benefits" don't seem to really matter much.

: What chair are you using for gaming?
I personally just use my bed cause...no room for a desk, rip. I do have a friend who had gotten a high end gaming chair, sadly I cannot quite remember the exact brand or type, but looked very similar to those and was just as expensive. He told me that the first 5 or so days of using it made his back hurt like crazy...then it was the most comfortable chair he had ever had in his life and he never wanted anything else. So if you do decide to get one and it seems uncomfortable at first...it's probably just fixing your posture. Give it at least a week. I'd personally say a really damn good chair is worth it if you really do game a lot or even work at the comp a lot, though I'm not sure if there are qualified ones for a lesser price.

I even had someone ask me when I was BEHIND the photo counter if I worked there. I had to really bite back a laugh or snide remark. Working in customer service at Walgreens for a while made my faith in people drop, though I did get a fair bit of nice people too.

It's not much but it's there. Anything smaller and there simply isn't enough mass for a hanging effect to be noticed easily. Keep in mind that even Janna could be wearing a push up bra to make herself appear bigger. In her Storm Queen skin, it seems a lot more likely that she is. Besides, there's more than one way to refer to cup sizes, some without getting banned. Cup size (on American measurements) is a letter measuring the difference between the fullest part of the bust and the measurement of the torso just beneath the bottom-most part of the bust. A is 1 inch. B is 2 inches. C is 3 inches. D is 4 inches. While this is the standard, different bra manufacturers sometimes fit differently even at the same size, whether it be due to fabric or style of construction. All bras use this basic system for measurements, but not necessarily on the same scale (such as Japan using centimeters). I also have a pretty good ability to visually gauge a size at a glance, accurate within 1 cup size on anything up to E/DD cup.

Though to be fair, many places now seem to call certain sizes larger than they used to be considered. Like Victoria's secret seems to have a tendency to call their Ds a DD, for instance. Or so I've been told. That place is too expensive for me to know for sure. Anyway, I guess if you feel that confident I don't really want to argue for the sake of arguing. I can just say that I've never known a B to be that way personally. At all.

Gragas doesn't wear his fat anywhere near as well as Miss Fortune or Sona. Besides, Gragas in a bikini would only be fitting as an April Fools joke. And Janna is a B cup (at most). She has to be smaller in order to float as quickly as she does. There's a reason she floats higher than Sona and generally moves faster.

: It appears to be a "social scar" where there's no meaning behind the phrase, but people say it anyway because they see others do it. It's a programmed response to an event from observing others do it. An example is, when it's someone's birthday, you say "happy birthday". Another one is saying "how are you doing" when you don't care whatsoever how someone is doing. Clapping along with the crowd for no reason, etc. The point is, it's meaningless, and we say it to pretend to fit in and be social. If I'm wrong let me know.

To an extent I think you're right. For most people. I personally dislike that "how are you doing" especially has practically turned into a greeting and that most don't really care. Feels rude to me. When I do ask, I always ask that with the intention of actually listening and caring about the response. I may not always have something decent to respond with, especially for a stranger, but I still care. I don't know. I guess I feel like at least I tend to actually care about the meaning behind things like this even if I know at times I feel I am obligated to say them.

Are any of you? Utility is allergic to cigarette smoke too. His throat and sinuses burn, starts having trouble breathing if it's bad enough, eyes water, etc. He can't even handle cigarette butts, which he's forced to do at his job to clean them up even after saying he's badly allergic. It bothers me too but to a lesser extent. Though I get headaches from it most if exposed too much. Sucked when I was working and customers reeking of the stuff came to buy more cigs. I nearly had to hold my breathe dealing with them.

I am really out of the loop for animes in the last 5 years I swear. Anyway, this is an ending but I just...for some reason it came to my mind first right now and I felt compelled to post it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGUsd9jePKI
: i never thought it would happen to me but
I get that pain as well when playing games for too long, any heavy mouse use games. I've already confirmed I'm developing carpal tunnel in my hand so...I'd advise you to start taking breaks, do some hand exercises, or things like that to help rest your hand and prevent further damage/pain. I personally have a wrist brace I wear whenever my hand acts up. There was even a period of time years ago where I taught myself to use a mouse with my left hand, but my hand isn't doing that badly now thankfully. So take care of your hand, buddy!

: What is your absolute favourite band of all time?
Oh so it WAS you I've seen linking Pinback before. I was just linked one of their songs about 10 minutes ago and have since been jumping around between random songs of theirs. Definitely liking what I hear. I'm bad with favorites though. I honestly am not sure if I could choose a favorite band. While I love music, I tend to not follow specific bands fully. I also listen to video game music and foreign music (yes yes, mostly Japanese cause anime...I need to branch out more on foreign music) sometimes more often than English music at this point.

: Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge only 792.00 from Verizon
I got the regular S7 not too long after it came out from Best Buy because they were selling it for $100 with the contract. My previous phone was on its death bed after a few years of use anyway and I don't really plan to switch off Verizon in the next couple years. Didn't think getting the edge was really worth the spike in price for me. It's been working quite well for me so far. I'd never buy a phone directly from Verizon at this point as their prices seem highest. Best Buy seems to have regular phone sales, sometimes even for the newer phones. The best prices are with contracts, though. Just need to make sure to read the fine print on Best Buy to ensure your plan will stay the same and all that.

: So I heard Harvest Moon is on Steam now?
I think it's an amazing game. I've been wanting another really good Harvest Moon-esque game. The Rune Factory series will most likely never get another game (though I can hope), and now the "Harvest Moon" games can't use that name so they're "Story of Seasons." Though to be fair I haven't tried the new Story of Seasons games, so I don't know if they're good or not. I personally don't care if it's heavily based on the Harvest Moon games. The developer admitted himself that's what it initially was going to be (a clone) and he ended up building it into something a bit more. I think the game takes some of the better elements of those games, some of Rune Factory, and adds a few other things like the museum collection aspect (like Animal Crossing) and what not. In some areas I feel there's a bit more depth to it than classic HM. Plenty of genres take old formulas and build on them, making new but similar games. If it's good, it's good. I'm just gonna sit here and be happy about it. :) If someone else doesn't like it, that's certainly fine.
