How do you handle agressive panhandlers? In a lot of the areas I frequent, there's panhandlers all over the place. Some are a lot more hostile and annoying than others. Here's a few notable cases with me: Incident #1: Guy asks for money. I reply "No" before he even finishes his sentence (his reasons are that he needs money for a bus ticket, that's been his reasons multiple times; there's an ATM a few steps away), because I know he is a fake homeless man and not worth my hard-earned money. He purposely asks people for money when he sees that they are in unoccupied areas. Talk about a sick one. Result: dude gets pissed off and we nearly have a fist fight. Incident #2: Another guy asks for money with similar reasons but this guy is a
Why did Solange Hurt Jay-Z? Possible explanations: He said "I got 99 problems but your ugly face makes it 100". He called her a derogatory name. He said Solange is a poor man's Beyonce. He stole her cocaine? He mistook her for Beyonce and grabbed her boob or something like that? The elevator is haunted by past members of Destiny's Child and Solange got possessed by one of them? He said "only Billionaires allowed on the elevator. Sorry Solange you noob" He said "It's a Hard Knock Life", to which Solange responded 'I'll show you what hard knocks are.' Solange decided that Jay-Z was the one for her... to punch and kick. Solange wanted to know how much bigger Jay-Z's giant-ass lips can swell up to.
Donald Sterling banned from Nba and fined 2.5 million Source: Donald Sterling was banned from the NBA and will probably be losing millions for being a racist. Does the punishment fit the crime? I'm not too sure that it does. And is it even a crime to begin with? I wouldn't call it that (make no mistake however, if you see Sterling's history, he is seemingly guilty of real crimes). I mean, the NBA knew he was a racist scumbag of a person well before this whole recorded debacle thing happened. And only now they choose to take action. Seems like a knee-jerk reaction. And what about the fact that his supposed mistress was of African-American descent? Why would he say something against black people, when the person he was even telling it to was
Pro in Ms equals crappy life in reality? Back when I played MS, it ruined my life outside the game the better I got at it and the more I spent playing it. I slowly got out of shape, my college grades deteriorated as well as my job becoming harder with MS as a distraction; I had no friends outside of the game (thank god for the in-game friends though because they were truly the silver lining in this whole debacle, and I'm still great friends with them.). But other than friendship with people who I'll never meet in person, this game ruined my life. What about you guys?
So how is World of Warcraft? Is it currently fun playing WoW, for those who do?

How to deal with family member going to jail A family member went to jail. Sure they had it coming and probably deserve it, but I feel like I should help in some way only because they are a family member. Should I help? This is a very complicated situation because we haven't been close (physically or otherwise) for years as well. But now that the news is here that they went to jail, I feel like I have some kind of obligation to help at least a little bit. Should I help, and if I can, how? What would you do in my situation? edit: I should add that they weren't a good family member either and never really gave a crap about the family; if that makes any difference.
Rich versus Poor my opinion Why are people so naive when it comes to rich versus poor? A lot of people that aren't rich have this simple mentality that rich people are generally selfish and greedy (e.g. 1% vs. 99%, or "Occupy Whatever" ). Has anyone considered that most rich people might actually be rich because they deserve to be rich? If you have tons of responsibilities and your job is extremely hard, should you not get paid well for it? If your parents are well-off and you have inherited a lot of money from them, are you not deserving of the money (that is not to say that you should not learn how to truly earn money on your own and be greedy either, and your parents would need to know that you would make good use of this money
Wait so no Eric class? If Nexon actually released the Eric class I would unquit. But obviously they'd have to give it more OP-ed skills. Skills such as... Hide: hide behind a tree/rock.

I didnt get Rolled Back e.e ...I got Rolled [b]Forward![/b] :~( Y U dun goofed Nexon? But alas, since I've come from the future I'll tell you exactly what will happen: There's no more maple. Total anarchy. Kim Jong Un took over maple (and also overthrew South Korea) and made it socialist. Women can't play anymore. The whole game is now a dry-cleaning store. The future is bleak. Social interaction is prohibited, so all there is is dry-cleaning bots in every map.
People who get unbanned get rich for doing nothing? It seems like those who get banned are richer in the end, when they get unbanned later, than those who do not get banned; because Nexon just loves to give people tons of NX after unbanning them. So is it worth it for me to get banned so that I can get unbanned and then get NX for nothing later? Anyway, I've pretty much quit for good. Was just curious about this topic because I see people getting unbanned + compensated left and right; even those who deserved to stay banned forever. Not even a free 1 mil NX could get me to come back though because the game is too far down the drain.

BearWolves, a character study Ok, how is this logically possible? You have a friqqing seven hundred pound bear....riding a dirty wretched wolf. To top that off, the bear is mean...and the wolf is mean. It is obvious that the wolf is mad because I would be too when an ass that weighs 300 pixelated pounds sits on me. So I can very much sympathize with the wolf more than with the bear. How do they even sleep at night? But the bear quite clearly has had a horrible childhood. He wished for a pony as a kid and never got one, so now as an adult he has to settle for a raggedy wolf to sit on. The bear has in his hand a spiked weapon which he uses on the wolf if the wolf does not follow the bear's orders. So, I mean, the wolf has it worse than the be
Tentative Red Builds The following is a pending prototype of the builds I'm planning to add to my guide for when the RED patch hits. Don't hesitate to post if you need explanation or think something needs to change, as these builds are nowhere near set-in-stone. I'm particularly shaky about the 3rd job fire builds, how effective Mana Burn is since it is chance-based (question is by hit, or by attack?) and also depends on how much MP the enemy has left, and if the skill precedence over others caters to Elemental/Fervent Drain and Mana Burn in all the according builds. [header]2nd Job Dynamic Build[/header] - +2 Poison Breath (2), +1 Flame Orb (1), +1 Spell Mastery (1) - Max Spell Mastery (10) - +3 Booster (3) - Max Poison Breath (10) - Max H
