So, why was everybody targeting this kid, exactly?

http://gtaforums.com...6652-struggles/

 

Because his title was open to so much interpretation. We all think we post our struggles in there, it was just him complaining about stuff.

 

Except I'm fairly sure that feeling generally useless evokes more emotions in a person than, I don't know, failure to plunge a toilet.

It's not a case of the content of the original post, but rather it was the title that did it. It said "Struggles" and nothing more, so it made people post things they struggle with. It's as if I made a thread called "free plane tickets" in which I just talk about plane tickets I won. See how misleading that is?

I'm mildly irritated for forgetting about a party that most 10th graders go to before finishing middle school. People basically put up tents on the school grounds and stay the night. From what I heard, a lot of people got drunk, which would have been fun to see.

Also, it may just be my old-ass phone, but the mobile version of this site is an unlubed pain in the ass!

@SolidSnails

Where are you from?
In Norway, elementary starts obviously in 1st grade (6 years old), and ends in 7th grade (12 years old). Then it's middle school 8-10th grade, and high school 11-13th grade (High Schools are not as connected to middle and elementary schools, so they are actually called 1st-3rd grade). Then it's university for however long you want to study.

OT: I'm f*cking pissed at how awkward I get infront of this certain girl I like. I start sweating and tounge-twisting like someone with social anxiety.

Or if you don't go to Middle School ( Like me ), in Elementary School it's grade 1-7 and in High School it's grade 8-12


Also at UT, at least the girl you msg all of a sudden doesn't send this

 

okay. its funny how u know i like you and all but you still seem to talk about other girls i get it. im not your type and personally your to old for me anyways but the thing that really hurts me is you know how i feel but you honestly didn't have to show or tell me about that i don't talk to you because i like you i talk to you because i love your jokes and your advice and how your so down to earth i find it kinda unfair that i always have to hear about girls i never mention boys but my brothers you know how i feel but you still go ahead I'm not even lying I've stayed up freaking out,crying and even just trying to make sense of something but what I'm trying to say is u know that i don't like talking about girls and i would just like it if we could not talk about them and in return i wont talk about boys. srry to make this so awkward but here is something to look on the brighter side summer vacation hey!

For me, middle school was 4th through 6th. 7th through 9th was junior high, and 10th through 12th was high school.

Some guy who goes by the name of Elven87 put me on the GTAF page on encyclopedia dramatica. Not very frustrating or angry, but I'd at least like to know who he is here.

I've just checked that page out and it's not even funny, it's just a rant, filled with insults, what's the point of it? I mean, there are other similar sites that at least try to be humorous instead of simply disrespectful for the sake of it.

Laughing at someone getting hit in the head is also disrespectful. Doesn't make it any less funny though

Encyclopedia Dramatica is meant to be offensive but funny/satirical, but is mostly there for people to be offensive under the pretense of humour. Think of it similar to 'trolling, in a bad way.

 

Anyway,  a few people in my small tech class were talking about how they weren't homophobic, but hated (yes, hated) 'the idea of gayness' or something to that effect. It annoys me so damn much.

But it's not even funny or satirical. It's simply offensive, pure garbage. It's like a 11 year old kid ranting on the mic after losing in a CoD match.

It's not really meant to actually offend the person reading it, they're just poking fun at trends on the internet by becoming an exaggerated joke about being the internet, if that makes sense. There's a little bit of truth and a lot of joking. If you were offended it means it was good satire on their part, or confusing satire. Either way. ;)

 

Also be sure to visit the offended page to read their official apology and take on the matter.

So my town is basically 70% Hispanic, 90% of them being either immigrants or children of immigrants. There's this white guy I grew up with who recently got REALLY into the uber-conservative way of thinking... the whole nine yards: overbloated "Christian" beliefs, wanting to basically murder Obama in his sleep, and, something that's a touchy issue for immigrants and Hispanics, a deport-them-all attitude towards immigration. So the dumbass, whose friends list is 80% Hispanic and 10% Tea Party people from other states he's never met in his life keeps posting sh*t on Facebook about how illegal immigrants eat babies and what-not. And THEN he keeps acting all depressed because no one wants to hang out with him... like, seriously, dude? That's like going over to israel and shouting "dirty jews! Anyone wanna be friends?"

I'm grumpy because GTA V has such a terrible loading system.

 

For one thing, it shatters the realism when you can actually see the cars and fencing load into the game as you drive. What's really sad is the de-spawning system. It's sad when you actually have to keep the cars/people you want to stay on the screen, otherwise they disappear.

 

I had the police on standby and got into fights with people so they would shoot the person. Sure enough, I let the police out of my sight for 5 seconds and they disappear.

Looks like the safety 'cage' of the passenger cabin doesn't work very well, when the speeding vehicle hits a tree. Four more students that won't be at the graduation ceremony.

Physics is a bitch. There's only so far you can go in terms of building safety measures into road cars. Once the speed gets above 70 or so even the toughest monocoques end up looking like they've been fed through a mincer. Even FIA approved rollcages in road car shells as often seen in GT type racing cars start letting go at circa 120 if what you hit is hard enough. And that's is the decelerative force doesn't result in instant death from a basilar skull fracture.

The toughest don't really look like they've been fed into a mincer tbh. Maybe in a light crash but by no means a mincer.

While the wings and wheels are heavily damaged/not present the main monocoque is largely intact. Well, it's been damaged but there isn't all that much damage to the monocoque considering it's 20 year old design and it's been in a ~130 MPH "meeting" with a concrete barrier.  What surprises me is that the occupant (Ayrton Senna) wasn't killed instantly. 

 

 

 

Road legal cars on the other hand... they wouldn't do so well.

I was playing STALKER Shadow of Chernobyl, I managed to get to the part where you go into the sewers. Anyways, I crouched in a pipe and quicksaved, and when I reloaded the game it made me stuck through the pipe. I didn't have any backup saves and I don't know of any noclip cheats or positioning editors, so I guess I have to restart from the beginning.

 

Such is life in the Zone.

I was talking about road-going monocoques (that is, pretty much every modern car seen as we don't build on ladder chassis anymore), not single-seater tubs which are incredibly strong as you quite rightly point out.

I'm pretty pissed that I couldn't open a Chase account today. Like I'm talking to my mom about taking me there to open an account since they don't have Suntrust banks in Colorado and Chase
needs two forms of identification to open up an account. I brought my drivers license and I asked my mom if we can go to my grandparents house to get my social security card thing, to which she's all like "No, this letter from Suntrust saying you closed your account should be good enough". So I go to the bank and the bank guy says that the letter isn't good enough and I would need my social security card, like I suggested. Now seeing as the bank is closed on Sunday and I won't be able to go to the bank until next Saturday to open an account considering my work week, I'm pretty livid.
