I don't hate drunk guys but here i have enough to him.

He is the father of one friend and actually my host.
...

All weekend he drinks, he drinks to the point of no longer see the details.

It's Saturday, 0:18, he can not read. It is on the touch pad and looking for a wife.
He found some pages on internet dating sites.

As he have large fingers, he presses a little everywhere and reduces all windows.
on the tablet, when a window is reduced it's placed on a bar that appears only under certain conditions.
As it no longer sees the windows, it opens other, after a while the tablet freeze.

He has no patience, as he is drunk, he does anything and become angry.
The problem is that every obstacle it encounters, it is up to me to handle it.
If I go sleep, he woke me up.
I don't present him my GF because i'm paranoïd.
Every 5 minutes, he say me a thing i completely don't care.
It's like have a baby who have 56 years old.

I HAVE ENOUGH OF HIM!!!!
I have actually hate for him.

Please take that for a joke, smile for that situation and pray for "he go to bed soon"
I can't.

Sorry Barda, you have my sympathy, but reading that bit this was the first thing to come to mind:



Can you actually move out and live somewhere else?

RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE!!!!!
(I've no idea how many of you are actually gonna read this, but I've got to post it anyway)
Spoiler:

So, Final Fantasy XI. Yes, that game.

In it, Scholars and Summoners have two fantastic abilities that make them stand out and actually really really useful. They are, respectively, Embrava and Perfect Defense.

Embrava, Scholar's ability, for a start can only be cast while Tabula Rasa is active. Tabula Rasa can only be used once every two hours(Granted, they're bringing it and every other ability that can only be used once every two hours to half an hour, but still) and as such, it should be an awesome ability. It is. Embrava just made it better. Tabula Rasa itself gives Scholars the ability to use Strategems without regards to the normal limit of five stored Strategems at once. Strategems are the main thing about this job, allowing the use of things like Perpetuance(One of my two favorites, increases the duration of enhancing spells), Penury(Lowers MP cost), Celerity (Halves the casting time of a spell), and Accession(The other favorite, turns white magic spells into AoE spells, everyone loves that!)

All of that nonsense above stacks with Embrava. You can turn it into an AoE buff that lasts ten minutes via Perpetuance and Accession. They are applying the nerf bat to Embrava, quite hard. Embrava is actually going to become nigh worthless after the nerf hits live.

Currently, Embrava does this:

Effect Duration = 5 minutes
Regen potency = Enhancing Magic ÷ 7 + 1 HP/tick (72/tick at 497 or greater enhancing skill)
Regain potency = Enhancing Magic ÷ 100 + 1 TP/tick (6/tick at 500 or greater enhancing skill)
Haste potency = Enhancing Magic ÷ 15 + 1% Haste (presumed cap at 500 skill), up to about 32% haste

Regen, standard FF stuff. You get HP over time.
Regain, acts like Regen, just increases your TP over time instead of HP, which allows you to use special damaging skills.
Haste, again, standard FF stuff. You attack faster and your recast times are lowered.

Post nerf, Embrava does this:

Effect duration: Currently 5 minutes → Adjusted to 90 seconds
Haste: Currently 1% increase for every 15 enhancing skill points → Adjusted to 1% increase for every 20 enhancing skill points. Maximum of 25% at 500 skill
Regain Effect: While the value will remain unchanged, the Regain effect will be changed to Refresh.

Going from 5 mins to 1:30 is a brutal duration chop.
Haste got MAULED, like......it takes a Scholar's Tabula Rasa ability to use Embrava, when a Bard can do better by singing marches that they can keep up full time. Where's the logic?
The WORST change, I mean, this change is truly what makes Embrava not that helpful anymore, is turning Regain into Refresh. Refresh is Regen for MP. Refresh just isn't helpful. Currently, as it stands, mages don't run out of MP. Ever. Even if they did, the 3 MP/tic from this change can be done by pairing the actual "Refresh" spell with Accession. You can full time that. WTF WHY?!?!?!? Regain is what mattered, why did they decide to shift it to Refresh?

Why do I bring this up? Well, out of the twenty available jobs.....the one I enjoy the most? Scholar.(The book is the grimoire! That's used to use Strategems. That's your random tid-bit of info for this post) Scholar just got hit HARD.


As for Summoners and their Perfect Defense? Perfect Defense can only be used by Alexander, and guess what? You can only summon Alexander during Astral Flow. Astral Flow is to Summoners as Tabula Rasa is to Scholars. A short term ability that can only be used once every two hours.

Perfect Defense is exactly what it sounds like; it makes you invincible for the duration. The duration for Perfect Defense is currently a minute and thirty seconds. Post nerf, Perfect Defense duration is thirty seconds. It can slowly be built back up to a sixty(Still less then pre nerf) second duration by increasing your Summoning skill to 600. Problem? The most Summoning magic skill you can get is 542. Squeenix didn't think that one through.

Main problem here is, Squeenix put in some events that players kinda relied on Perfect Defense and Embrava to actually complete. Arch Dynamis Lord for example. I won't go into specifics of what he does, as I'd imagine no one would read through it and the post is lengthy enough as it is. Point is, without Perfect Defense, ADL just kinda destroys everyone.


Spoiler:

Ok, done with this post I doubt many will read. Had to post it anyway.

Double post, the rage is strong with this one.

I've had perfect attendance for my BIOL220 class. Never late, nothing. My test grade for the second exam never got posted on the site my college uses. I send the prof an email asking about it, and this is the response:

My administrative assistant checked all of her records and we find that
you did not turn in an exam or a scantron. She has an elaborate set of
checks and balances to insure that errors are not made. On the day of the
exam she sent a notation to my other secretary stating that you had not
turned in a test and scantron. I am a little perplexed about this.


They lost......my test. They lost....my test. It's impossible to pass the class now, glorious. All of my hate belongs to the biol department staff.

Oh man, I am pissed. Got home today to find a letter from FedEx, saying I was overdue on paying a bill and that I had 7 days to pay or else they'd be taking up legal action. The fuck. So I ring up to find out what the hell's going on. Apparently this bill is for a customs charge for the Link figure I bought Stuart for Christmas. Wait, why am I being charged shipping? Because according to the woman I spoke to Play Asia, who I ordered it from, said I gave them express permission to pay for custom charges. There are numerous problems here:

- I was not told I would have to pay customs charges.
- I did not give permission to pay the charges.
- I never received the first bill.

So yes, FedEx is threatening me for a bill I never received and never gave permission to pay in the first place. Just great. I've emailed Play Asia but I bet they won't pay it. If I knew they were going to charge me for customs I'd have bought it elsewhere. Goddamn, I am not happy with having to play even more for a Christmas present I thought I'd already paid for.

That sucks Raya. Nothing like getting stuck with a bill you didn't think you had.

My current gripe is with hats. My head is just barrrrely too big for conventional hats. So if I want to have a certain style I'd better pick up haberdashery.

Lesson being, if you want to cosplay something with a hat, have a small head.

I have trouble with hats, too. Sad

I'm pissed at some douchebag in my class. My teacher decided to point out that I was a great word processor so this guy rocked up late and then borrowed my book, so I couldn't get my work done, and then asked me to explain everything, and I mean everything, that was like 70 pages, and then kept chatting when we were supposed to work (I wouldn't have minded as much if I could've actually worked and he wasn't asking questions that made me uncomfortable). And then he was a general douchebag to some poor 2nd semester girl who was trying to sell her books, and in the end of the lesson, wasn't working but wasn't giving my book back.

Now I'm behind where I could've so easily been way ahead, and it pisses me off to no end. Last time I try to be nice to people Razz

Bah, remember about my MP3 player being nicked? Got a call from the police earlier. Basically they told me 'tough shit'. Though they have a list of subjects (ie everyone who was in the gym) they can't do anything since there was no CCTV. One thing that's worrying me is identity theft, since my CV/job application was on it, the reply was "well, you shouldn't have had it on there. If someone steals your identity there's nothing that can be done until it happens. So yeah."

THANKS A LOT LEICESTERSHIRE CONSTABULARY, THAT IS VERY REASSURING.

Great, so, if someone is using my details to take out loans and crap I'm not going to find out until the baliffs come knocking at my door, sigh...

I don't like my job but it's hard to find anything when I've got college on meaning my time at work is reduced to weekends mostly - cause I'm 21 most weekend work places won't hire me, because I'm too old. Even at the pub I allegedly work at I'm older than a lot of the staff. And yeah, allegedly, because it's gone back to the old, I call them, they say they'll call me with some work, they never do, the cycle continues. I'm going to visit my family at the end of the month and we're going to spend at least 1 day in Melbourne and having money for that would be lovely because hey, shopping and really good food Razz

I guess I should update my RSA (responsible service of alcohol license) and maybe I might have some more luck. But that costs money to do, money which I don't have.

And I have my job at the sports back, which is great for a 2nd job because it's a lot of fun, the work's not too bad, and the pay's pretty decent. But yeah, it's really irregular, and of course the first game of the season is on the day I fly back from Melbourne, which is not going to look good when I say "oh bugger, I can't make it, I'm interstate" when I told them I'm available for every game. /sigh I don't want to shorten my time in Victoria, though, because it'll be nice to have company at home for a change. Dad and I are both incredibly bad tempered, passive-aggressive, and lazy. The place is feral because we both lack motivation to clean, he and I never see each other and half the time I see him he's throwing tantrums so that means I actively avoid him...man, why did I ever think this would be a good idea. I mentioned that my flight to Melbourne is at 7am and he started looking up train times for me (mum would throw a fit if she knew, after all she's driving the 3 and a half hours to Melbourne to meet me at the airport).

Also this class I'm in is boring as hell, the teacher is not very good, and I have 2 exams (that are on today) I could be spending this time revising for (and I have been because fuck basic maths, I know all this).

Ontario, my province, just elected a government whom has more than DOUBLED our Provincial debt since taking office 11 years ago to a Majority Government. Which means for the next 4 years we are screwed.

I was at a Liberal headquarters just outside my town doing coverage when it was announced, everyone but my crew and I celebrated. I'm in a state of shock and severe anger. Apparently mud slinging, lying through your teeth and stealing gets you re-elected in this province. FUCKKKKKK!
