Do you think categories really exist?

2020.08.24 20:42 PachuliKing Do you think categories really exist?

Hi everyone! Ok first of all sorry if my English isn’t the best.
I wanted to ask if you guys thinks there are such things as categories in real life, where do they come from and if we can put them aside. I mean I know they exist, but sometimes they don’t and also, I’m not sure if they have a reason to be. Whether it is social construction, biology or whatever. I’m asking this because of various things.
And well I don’t remember why but when I asked this same thing to a friend, we ended talking about what’s the point of having a relationship. We came to the conclusion that it is because you are looking for virtues and defects on a person. The first will help you and the seconds are something you can fix. Then, categories shouldn’t exist since having a relationship is more than having a pretty face or a fat wallet with you, am I right?
I think I rambled a bit but I’m sure you know what I’m trying to say.
Thanks guys for reading

2020.08.21 18:10 madmuffin When writing an narrative-heavy game, how many 'voices' would you write for the players?

'Voice' in this context refers to sets of dialog options that follow a general theme.
Illustrative examples:
Those are some good examples. When setting out to write a narrative game, it seems like developers put in effort to give players many 'asshole' options, but as Mass Effect showed, the average person wants to do good, maybe not because they are good but because the games themselves incentivize being good more than being bad.
Almost always in dialog-choice games, some choices inherently give better rewards, and it almost always comes down to not 'roleplaying a character' but instead 'playing a game' where the optimal path forward, the optimal 'sollution' is to always choose the humble choice, because it results in the highest reward at the end, skewing the statistic. In Fallout 4, mechanically there is almost never a reason not to push every quest giver to the limit of what they'll reward you, because there is no penalty or repercussion for doing so outside of offending some companions.
If 'reward' is taken out of the equation, how many 'voice' would you write for players to pick between? Keeping in mind that every 'voice' you add means multiplying the work effort across the entire game, and that if you choose the 'wrong' voices, it might amount of months of wasted effort on content that no one will ever play, even if they vocally say they want to see X, but never intend to ever pick X.
And are there any games you'd say did dialog particularly well? I've heard Dragon Age Inquisition is another good example but I have not played it myself.

2020.07.30 23:21 crazytaricmain My suffering is why I hate this society.

I was born 24 years ago. I got forced to get into the education system as all of you. All my individual qualities were ignored. I was put in a cage with a group of people of my own age. Never mattered wether I was bored, or irritated, or tired, or what I wanted to learn, or what I wanted to do. As years passed I grew more and more exhausted of being 6 hours in a place I didnt enjoy. I was depressed, I felt traped and I felt dispair.
My family was disgusting. My parents arguing all day. Cheating. They never stimulated any healthy interaction on me, I grew as a lonely autist who never knew how to relate with others or communicate thoughts or worries. My parents would belittle me all the time, and insult me. When I was very young I showed serious symptoms of psycological problems yet my parents ignored them. I was born different, my brain functioned differently, I was gay, I had went through circumcision aswell, I had a huge stain on my ribs. I was insecure all my life and it fucked me psycologically and physically, and restrained every decision and action ive ever made. My parent never put any interest in house matters, or on me. The house was a mess, everywhere you would look at it. I didnt even have a door on my room. They never bothered to buy a dishwasher neither. They never organized anything, it was just screams, beatings, locking me outside... when I was in highschool my father forced me to work at his factory and he did so every summer until today. I never had any mood or energy to fix my life or to do something new. He was an egocentric low inteligent person who was so self righteous and smug about himself it made me see the worst of my species, while being one of the least caring persons ive ever met. My mother was an unstable crazy lady although she loved me she was so incoherent and her moods changed so fast and she was so stupid and found the worst partner to form a family with.
This is why Im against the family as a social structure. No kid should be dependent on 2 persons he could not choose.
Apart from this, I also got to witness the egoism of everyone around, in the school for example. How egocentric and evil everyone is. All the time it felt like people only cared about themselves, anyone hurts you so easily and they couldnt care less. And the ones who dont do evil actively, they do it passively.
I just hope some day I find peace and happines at last after all this disgusting quarter of my life wasted in suffering.

2020.07.09 23:05 Benster_ninja Official Lore: The Spirits

Between the Realm of the most holy and the Realm of all matter in the Verse, lies the Spirit Realm. A World of Translucent forests, Storms of emotion, and some of the most ornate cities within the Verse. It is here where the spirits of things living, dead, and everything in-between reside and prosper under the safety of the spirit gods.
The Spirit World was made alongside the other 7 realms at around the beginning of all of existence. The first spirits were the spirit gods, primordial and living essences of Soul, Emotion, and the natural Spirits of the Verse. Many uncountable Spirit gods began to appear as time went by and the Verse began. A Leader emerged amongst these gods known as Ego, God of self, alongside his partner Empathy, Goddess of Awareness. In their wake, they sustained power and became the primary gods of the Spiritual pantheon. Other notable members of the Spirit gods include, but are not limited to, Joy, Goddess of Happiness and Pleasure, Truth, God of Justice and Law, Battle, God of Rage and War, Know, God of Inteligence and Understanding, Grief, Goddess of Sorrow and Loss, Worry, Goddess of Need and Anxiety, and many, many more. Although most of these gods take the names of Concepts such as Pain, Love, or Perfection, other, lesser gods, will often make a more "normal" name for themselves. Most infamously Jalisar, Former God of Order turned to a God of Madness after the Astral war, or Arbira, Goddess of Pride. Aside from the Gods, most of the Spirit World is populated by, of course, the spirits. These spirits range in form and variety, from playful animal spirits, mindless and hungry souls, and many other spirits of all kinds of forms.
Of course, these are just some of the most known types of spirits in the Spirit World, with the possibility of there being more being almost positive.
The Spirits are often the most common type of being to interfere with the live of beings in the Central Universes. Paranormal phenomena, strange tales and sightings, and many other unexplainable events could be linked to the influence of the Spirits. However, the Spirit gods rarely directly interfere in the lives of mortals, usually to busy fancying themselves to the pleasures of the Silver Castles within the Spirit world. When a group of mortals reveres a spirit god or a group of spirit gods, they rise in their standing amongst the other gods (usually just by a bit but still a noticeable bit.). So, this makes the pantheon of spirit gods more or less a competition of who can get the most followers. Despite the rise of different faiths to different gods, these gods continue to constantly gain followers from across the Verse. They send out many kinds of spirits to act as messengers, cast curses on foes, and generally nudging things into places that they desire. One of the largest groups who worships the Spirit gods is the Feudalic Theocracy of the Five, a Feudal government with ties to the Center of Law. They have total control of Five galaxies, each ruled by a Galaxy King which have all been ordained by the Spirit Gods themselves. The entire pantheon of the Spirit gods is worshipped here and is often at odds with the larger Church of Many Stars.
The Spirit world, the Spirit Gods, and the Spirits as a whole are tricky. Understandable, not always Manipulative, most of the time, Strange, definitely, Good or Evil, no. They have little understanding for the morals of good and evil, unless their nature as a spirit is dependent on the basis of good and/or evil. They act entirely on nature or by the nature of others above and beyond them, acting in ways that would confuse most living beings that don't have an understanding of the nature of spirits as a whole. Since the beginning of time, their plans have always made things go in ways that were unexpected by those who had no idea what was going on behind the scenes. but for those who understand, you must also know that at least one or two spirit gods or other powerful beings of said nature have your name on a watchlist. so make sure you behave yourself when you see a 15 foot tall elven man with deer antlers and legs.

Dokkan Battle 5th Anniversary Beginners Guide

Transdimensional Fusions! Divine Transcendence! Dokkan 5th Anniversary Celebration!
Dokkan Battle can be quite overwhelming for new players when they start playing and even for some veteran gacha players as well. With the Global version of the game celebrating it's 5th anniversary, it's sure to attract lots of new and returning players. The celebration brings a lot of content and events that can make it very confusing what to focus on. I'll try my best to cover all of the content and events available during the anniversary to provide you with a general idea of the whole celebration so you don't miss out on anything. It's important to note the the celebration is divided into 3 parts which means that not all the content and events will be available right away so keep this in mind. This guide will cover the 5th anniversary content for most part and does not serve as a introduction to the game as well as it's core gameplay and mechanics.
Note; Again, I'm a bit late with a guide, because of Real-Life obligations. I started writting this guide weeks ago based on the japanese celebration but some things have changed for the global release so please be patient if any information is missing. This guide will be updated throughtout the anniversary to be more complete and accurate. As a reddit thread has a limit of 20 pictures only some event headers are being shown for now. Throughout the anniversary I will try to update this post with (horrible looking informational graphics (as time wil allow me) but for now it is how it is. Please also note I'm just a player and the guide might contain mistakes due to human error. I apologize in advance.)

NOTE: Reddit has a 40000 character thread limit so this guide will be divided into two parts. This thread is the first part and the second part will be followed up in the comment section.

Because this is quite a lengthy guide I made a table of contents that will make it easier to navigate. Make use of the CTRL+F function to search for keywords or jump to specific sections.

  • Introduction
Welcome to Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle new players. You've picked a great time to start playing the game as we're celebratiing it's 5th year anniversary. Dokkan Battle is a game where you pop bubbles called orbs to gather ki so your units can perform powerful super attacks and defeat your enemies. The orbs and units come in five different types, Blue Agility (ALG), Green Technique (TEQ), Purple Inteligence (INT), Red Strength (STR) and Orange Physical (PHY). Certain units have advantages/disadvantages over others based on the type wheel. The game is mostly PvE, apart from two modes, World Tournament and Chain Battle, where you compete against other players however, you don't fight them directly. You fight against PvE content and are then ranked against others based on your performance.
For more detailed information about the game please consult the in-game Manual under Menu-Help-How to play tab or check the wikia. You can also ask questions in this thread in or in this subreddits appropriate megathreads.


5th Anniversary Transdimensional Login Bonus!
  • Login Bonus and Daily Missions
I think this goes without saying. If nothing else you should login everyday to claim the login rewards and at least try completing the daily missions to take advantage of the free resources that are provided daily. Upon your first login during the 5th anniversary period you will also obtain 1 God Dragon Stone 9 (red) and 5 copies of AGL Awakening Into a New Realm Super Saiyan God SS Goku. This Goku is a F2P card so he isn't particulary good, but he can only be obained during the anniversary so make sure to grab your copies. If nothing else he can serve as a memorabilia. In addition, completing the daily missions will award you with 5th anniversary coins, summoning tickets and other resources.

Daily 5th Anniversarys Missions
  • Clear any stage once
  • Clear any stage twice
  • Clear any stage three times
Authors Comment: I recommend you also clear the available Hidden Potential Event(s daily, as potential orbs are one of the harder resources to obtain.)


  • Special Missions!
Most of the time you won't need to pay any special attention to them and will complete them just by playing the game, such as stamina used, complete any stage n-times, etc. Sometimes though, these are more specific as in, complete a specific stage n-times, or win n-times using a specific character, etc. Make sure to complete all missions before they expire so you don't miss out on any free stones and other resources. The new inferface that highlights new missions and news if you haven't clicked on them yet makes it much easier not to miss any of those.


  • New Summons!
The main way of obtaining new units is by summoning them using Dragon Stones. Sometimes units can be obtained by completing certain events or missions, exchanging treasures in Baba's shop or they are given out as rewards. The best units though, are obtained by summoning. Dragon stones needed for summoning can be obtained by clearing stages for the first time, completing missions, login bonuses, etc. or they can be purchsed with real-life currencies via microtransactions. Summoning using Dragon Stones awards special coins that can be used to exchange them for certain units in Baba's Shop under the Treasure tab.


Summon Coins
You will obtain 1 Coin per 5 Dragon Stones used and there are three different types of coins you can obtain depending on the type of Banner.
Coins: obtained from:
Dokkan Festival Coins (Red) Dokkan Fest Banners
Legendary Summon Coins (Yellow) Legendary Summon Banners
Summon Coins (Blue) Category Banners, Type Banners, Rising Dragon Carnival Banners, all other Banners

We already mentioned different coins so let's take a look at different Banners
type of Banner: obtainable Units:
Dokkan Festival Dokkan Fest Exclusive units
Legendary Summon LR units
Category Summon only units from a certain category
Type Summon only units of certain type
Rising Dragon Carnival Doubled SSR summon rate
Extreme Z Dokkan Festival only o handful of DFE units
Other Banners Special Collaboration Units (eg. DB Heroes, etc.)
Another thing to remember is that Dokkan Fest Exclusive (DFE) units only appear as featured units while all others are part of the general summoning pool and can be obtained from (almost) every banner. In addition, units that can awaken to LRs from the general pool (non-DFE) do not appear on Dokkan Fest Banners (those that reward red coins). Doing a multi summon guarantees an SSR character in the last summoning spot (GSSR), so it's always recommended to do multi summons over singles.


Dokkan Festival: Gogeta & Dokkan Festival: Vegito
Dokkan Festival: Gogeta & Dokkan Festival: Vegito
The main attraction of the 5th anniversary, Duel Dokkan Festival (DDF) featuring STR Gogeta and TEQ Vegito that can awaken to LR and transform into their SSGSS forms. Each unit has it's own Banner, therefore Dual Dokkan Fest. Both Banners are stacked with great units, 12 featured SSRs, among them 3 DFE LRs.

Gogeta's Banner (only new units and LRs are highlighted)
STR LR Fusion Fighter Protecting the Earth Gogeta (new unit)
STR Saiyan Occupation Bardock (new unit)
INT LR Onset of a Hellish Fight Cell (Perfect Form) (300M DLs Celebration)
PHY LR Otherworld Super Warriors Goku (Angel) & Vegeta (Angel) (3rd year anniversary)

Vegito's Banner (only new units and LRs are highlighted)
TEQ LR Fusion Fighter to Save the Future Vegito (new unit)
AGL Furious Resistance Super Saiyan Trunks (Future) (new unit)
AGL LR Resolution in Battle Super Saiyan Gohan (Youth) (300M DLs Celebration)
INT LR Eternal Rivalry Goku & Vegeta (3rd anniversary)
All those LR units are DFE and I'm pointing them out because they very rarely appear on banners so it's great if you can grab any of those. The Banner features discounts and gives out tickets for every multi summon performed with dragon stones and awards Dokkan Festival Coins (Red), 1 per 5 Dragon Stones used. more information will follow as the banners and discounts are revealed
IMPORTANT: When you pull a new unit you can lock that unit by locking the lock icon in the top right corner when inspecting the card art. Please, do so with SSRs units so you don't lost them by accidentally selling them, using them as training partners, etc.
IMPORTANT2: If you pull multiple copies of the same (SSR) unit, DON'T use extra copies to raise their SA, but rather use them to unlock Hidden Potential Routes. This can be done under Team-Hidden Potential Tab. You must be at least level 50 (and clear stage 2 of Epic Showdown) to access the hidden potential feature. Another note, first unlock bottom right path, then top left followed by top right and lastly bottom left.

DISCLAIMER: I'm terrible with math! I couldn't find any calculations so I've tried doing my own using the "Tell Yourself the Odds" by u/joemarais as well as the Summon Rate Calculator on the Wikia but all my calulcations turned out so weird that I'm not confident enough to post then. If anyone has done or would be willing to do any kind of odds calulcatiuons I would ask for their help. HELP NEEDED!

Authors Comment: Both Banners are great and if possible summon on both. Even if you're low on stones I would suggest doing discounts on both banners. If you're deciding to summon only on one I would strongly suggest Vegito's Banner as it features better units. However, please consider your box and what units would benefit you most before summoning.


5th Anniversary! Ticket Summon
Ticket Summon: 5th Anniversary!
There are two versions of this banner, one where you summon with tickets and the second one where you summon with dragon stones (not yet available). The tickets can be obtained through daily missions but a lot of them could be obtained with missions leading to the 5th anniversary so if you only started playing, unfortunately you missed out on those. When summoning with tickets a multi summon gives only 5 characters and there is no GSSR. Also, you don't obtain any coins. If you summon with stones it is like a usual banner where a multi summon guarantees an SSR character in the last spot. This banner features 18 returning SSR characters. No new units, but there are 20 summonable LR characters in the general summoning pool.

Authors Comment: While you can obtain LR characters from this banner I would advice against summoning on this banner with dragon stones. Use your tickets and take what you get. Use you dragon stones on other suggested banners.


Ticket Summon: 5th Anniversary! Special Summon
Ticket Summon: 5th Anniversary! Special Summon
Again, there are two version of this banner. However, this banner is a bit different. There are no single summons, you can only perform one multi summon. By performing a multi summon you acquire 55 units, the last one being a guaranteed LR. The banner has 18 featured SSRs and 20 summonable LRs in the general pool. This means you can pull more than one LR when performing a multi summon. For the ticket summon you need 55 tickets that are awarded for completing missions throughout the celebration, but you'll need to wait till part 3 to obtain all the neccesary tickets. On the normal banner you can perform only one multi summon that requires 200 dragon stones for 55 units and 40 summon coins (blue).
Authors Comment: If you're a new player, I think it's worth summoning on this banner with dragon stones, as one LR for 200 dragon stones is really good value. I strongly suggest you wait and first summon on the Dokkan Duel Fest banners though. For others, it depends on your box of course, but I would rather spend 200 stones on the DDF banners. You already get one LR with tickets, and DFE LRs are generally better and harder to obtain than regular LRs.


5th Anniversary Part 2 Summons

Top Legendary Summon: Broly and Goku Black (Super Saiyan Rosé)
Top Legendary Summon: Broly and Goku Black (Super Saiyan Rosé)
This Legendary Summon Banner introduces two new LR units
INT Desire for a New Power Goku Black (Super Saiyan Rosé)
PHY Survival on a Harsh Planet Broly.
There are 12 featured SSRs and 21 summonable LRs from the general pool on this banner. You obtain 1 Legendary Summon Coin (yellow) per 5 Dragon Stones used.

Number of Multi Summons Dragon Stones used Odds (featured LR) Odds (any LR)
1 50
2 100
3 150
4 200
5 250
Authors Comment: For new players (and F2P players) I think it's best to skip this banner. The next big celebration will be 350Million Downloads celebration. Last DL celebration brough two new DFE LR units and the banners on this celebrations are usually stacked with great characters. I would suggest saving for the next celebration. Everyone else, if you still have stones, don't sleep on INT Goku Black. He is an amazing unit.


Other Banners

Mysterious Ritual Summon
A special banner where where you only obtain Elder Kais by summoning. Elder Kais are used to raise the SA of any unit by 1. You can only perform 4 multi summons and you obtain 5 Elder Kais per multi, so 20 Elder Kais for 100 Dragon Stones in total. In Addition, the banner awards Summon Coins (blue) per 5 Dragon Stones used.
Authors Comment: Avoid summoning on this banner as I don't think it's worth it. A lot of units have farmable SAs. Elder Kais are also given out often via mission rewards or login bonuses and they can be exchanged for with Baba's Treasures.


  • New Events!

Dokkan Events
Whenever you pull a new unit (that has a TUR or LR form) you will need special awakening medals to awaken them to their full power. These awakening medals can be obtained from their corresponding Dokkan Event or Story Events. Depending on the unit (Dokkan Fest Exclusive or not) you will also need a different amount of medals. You can check which medals a unit need and where to obtain them by inspecting the unit and click on the Growth tab in the top right corner or from the home screen, Team-Dokkan Awaken tab. Sometimes new units get new events or new stages are added to already existing ones. Lets take a look at the events that drop the medals for both new DFE LR units.

Advent of Omnipotence!
Advent of Omnipotence
The event has 2 stages with two dificiluties each. The lower difficulty drops 3-6 awakening medals, while the harder one always drops exactly 7. It is recommended to always farm the harder dificulty to be more stamina efficient, unless the event is too hard for you to complete. However, always complete the lower difficulty stage too for 1 Dragon Stone.
To fully awaken Fusion Fighter Protecting the Earth Gogeta you will first need 35 Gogeta medals from stage 2 to awaken him to TUR. To further awaken him you will require another 35 Gogeta medals from stage 2 and 35 Super Saiyan Gogeta Medals from stage 1. Broly (AGL Unusual Evolution Broly (Wrathful) and PHY Endless Evolution of the Warrior Race Super Saiyan Broly) and Paragus (INT Troublesome Father and Son Paragus & Broly) units (from the Dragon Ball Super movie) deal increased damage in this event so keep this in mind if the event gives you trouble.


Blazing Blue Fusion!
Blazing Blue Fusion
Here we have 3 stages, but the principle is the same. The lower difficulty drops 3-6 awakening medals, while the more difficulty one drops 7. Again, farm the higher difficulty unless the event is too hard for you.
To awaken Flash of Revival Vegito to TUR you need 35 Vegito awakening medals from stage 3 and to awaken him to LR you need another 35 Vegito medals from stage 3 and 35 Super Saiyan God SS Vegito awakening medals from stage 2. In this event, all Goku Black, Zamasu and Fusion Zamasu unit deal increased damage so bring those if you're having trobules.
Authors Comment: if the event is too difficult and you die, it is not recommended to waste dragon stones to continue. It's better to retry later with a stronger team. If you're struggling, there are two great F2P teams that are covered in section Other.


Story Events
Story Events are a retelling of certain events in the Dragon Ball Universe. Usually they come with farmable F2P units, awakening medals, new treasures and/or a combination of those. Challenge events on the other hand are much more challenging and are, for most part, considered Late- to End-Game Content that provides awards in form of in-game resources upon completion.
Another thing worth mentioning is that some story events (new or rewamped) have a Bonus Reward Drop Rate that scale with units used from a specific category. This can make a grind much easier and less time-consuming. Sometimes it's possible to know when a story is getting a rewamp by looking at the JP version of the game, otherwise it's impossible to predict.


Zero Mortals Plan!
A new event where you can recruit a new f2p unit, STR Supreme Kai's Shady Apprentice Zamasu. This Zamasu can be further awakened to an LR. Additionaly this is the first LR unit that can awakened further via Extreme Z Awakening. Additonal levels of this event will become available in part 2 of the celebration. Medals required for the Extreme Z Awakening can be obtatined from the the Extreme Z Area event that will become available in part 3. In this Story Event characters from the Time Traveleres category have an icreased drop rate chance to make this grind easier. Don't miss the chance to recruit F2P LR character The Beginning of Tainted Justice Zamasu (Goku) .

Zamasu copies requried (level 2) Awakening Medals required Orbs required
14 copies (100% & SA10) 90 (level 3) 4310 (S)mall
10 copies (for SA20) 150 (level 6) 2470 (M)edium
5 copies (for SA25) 45 EZA Medals (Extreme z Area) 223 (L)arge
Based on the Zamasu guide by u/Shiny244


Saiyan Trio Led by Fate!
In this new Event we can recruit 2 new characters INT Saiyan in Fate's Hands Broly (Kid) and AGL Surviving Prince Vegeta (Kid). Both units can be awakened to TUR and have an EZA. Unlike STR Supreme Kai's Shady Apprentice Zamasu from the above event that requires normal STR potential orbs, this two units require special hidden potential orbs that can be obtainted from level 3 of their event. Their EZA medals can be obtained from an Extreme Z Area event that will become available during part 2.
TIP: When challening level 3 you will obtain (Small orbs by going left, (M)edium orbs by going middle and (L)arge orbs by picking the right path.)

Broly (Kid) (level 1) Vegeta (Kid) (level 2) Medals Orbs (level 3)
14 copies (100% & SA10) 14 copies (100% & SA10) 20 Broly Medals (Level 5) 6540 (S(mall (x2)

/ / 115 EZA Medals(Extreme z Area) 346 (L)arge (x2)
Based on the Saiyan Kids Guide by u/Shiny244

Special Events

Frieza's Army Enlistment Test!
Join Frieza's Army! This event is similar to Give it a Dokkan! Punch Machine! event meaning you try to do as much as damage as possible in one attack. As in the Punch Machine event, the battles last for 2 turn/rotations. A new stage will be released daily (for five days) and each day units from a specific category will deal increased damage. You will clear mission and obtain rewards based on how much damage you do. Aim for as much damage as possible.
The event requires no stamina but support items are not allowed.
Bonus Categories are:
Movie Heroes Movie Bosses TTime Travelers Potara Fusion


Bonus Events

In Search of Greater Power! God-Level Intensive Training!
This New Time-Limited event drops a new items called Skill Orbs. You can read more about Skill Orbs in the section bellow. There is only one stage in this event. In case Beerus appears as the Enemy instead of Whis, you are guaranteed better drops. You can only challenge this event once a day during the 5th anniversary. After the anniversary the event can only be challenged once per week. Try to get as many good skill orbs as possible.


Skill Orbs
  • Skill Orbs
Skill Orbs are a new type of items that can be used to further improve hidden potential of units. You must first unlock the Hidden Potential feature at rank 50 to make use of this orbs. They be obtained form the the following events:

Silver Skill Orbs can be applied to UR or higher units of the same the type with SA10
Gold Skill Orbs can only be applied to UR or higher units with at least 2 hidden potential routes unlocked
IMPORTANT: Once applied, skill orbs CANNOT be removed. They can only be replaced with new skill orbs but that will destroy the one previously equipped.


  • Returning Events
Returning events are those that have been released before and were made available again. Most events in Dokkan return after a period of time so if you're overwhelemed with all the content available you can skip some and do that as it returns. However, make sure to do time-sensitive events and time-limited missions.
Sometimes old Story Events get a revamp which means that your progress on them gets reset and you need to complete all the stages again, but don't worry, you will receive 1 Dragon Stone upon your 1st clear. Sometimes new stages are added, new awakening medals or new f2p characters so be sure to complete these event. As mentioned before most revamped Story Events also get a Bonus Drop Rate so it's easier to grind. What grind you might ask? Well, the best returning stories are those that award Tresures. Treasure are items, you can find under Team-Items-Treasure and are used to be exchanged for rewards, items and resources in the Baba's Shop (Exchange Tab). Treasures such as Rad Radish, Kachi Katchin, etc. can be exchanged for Elder Kais, which are used to raise SA level of any character by 1. Elder Kais are always good and useful so try to grab any free ones you can get. You can also exchange for many other useful items depending on your needs.

Currently we have 2 returning events available Dragon Ball Super: Broly and Dragon Ball Super: Future Trunks Saga. I won't go to much into detail with this events at this point. In the Broly event you can recruit 5 different f2p characters. In the Trunks event there is 1 f2p unit avaialbe but also special awakening medals that are required to awaken some of the summonable units from the general summonable pool.
This means that if you pull a summonable unit that requires medals from a story event you won't be able to awaken them if you don't have the medals already or the event is available. Sometimes story medals can be exchanged in Baba's shop but it's random and takes a lot of time. There are also special items called Keys of the Past that can be used to challenge events that are not currently available but Keys are very hard to obtain so use them scarcely. In such cases it's best to prefarm such medals but we will talk more about this is the section Prefarming.


  • Treasure Exchange
We already mentioned Treasures in previous sections however, those were all farmable. Here we will talk about special treasures that are given out, earned through missions or bought vith real-life currencies and are only valid for a certain period of time.


God Dragon Stone
Upon your first login during the anniversary you will recieve a God Stone. You can exchnage it in Baba's Shop (Exchange Tab) for one of the applicable units. Some of those units are DFE while others are in the general summoning pool. As a new player there are only two units you should consider, STR Almighty Fusion Super Gogeta and INT Wickedness Personified Super Janemba. Keep in mind that Janemba is featured on Gogeta's banner so do your summons first before using your God Stone but don't forget to use it as you won't be able to use it after exchange period ends.
Authors Comment: In general it is always better to pick a new unit rather then dupes of the ones you already have but please consider your box before making a decision.


5th Year Anniversary Coins
5th Anniversary Coins are obtained by completing special missions and can be exchanged for units, items or other resocurces in Baba's Shop (Exchange Tab). Coins can be exchanged for Grand Kais, Units, Potential Orbs, Support Items or other resources. The units that can be exchanged for are non-summonable ones that were given out at previous anniversaries or celebrations, meaning they can't be obtained in any other way. Those units aren't really useful but are worth considering if you want to collect as many units as possible.
Authors Comment: As a new player I would avoid the units and take Potential Orbs and Grand Kais. For returning players or those that are taking on end-game content there are versy usesful support items available if you're in need of them.


Challenge Events

Boss Rush!
  • Boss Rush
A new stage of Boss Rush (level 10) will become available during the 5th anniversary. In Boss Rush you take on several enemies from the Dokkan Events in succession. The first two stages come in two difficulties while others only have one. Don't get discouraged by the amount of enemies, it's an example of quantity over quality.
Challenging this stages costs no stamina and rewards Dragon Stones upon completion. You can use support items and there are no other restrictions so these stages aren't too challenging with good units. Continues are not allowed but you shouldn't waste dragon stones on continues anyway. The anniversary banners are a great start to get a bunch of strong units and start building a good team. Try to defeat as many stages as possible.


Infinite Dragon Ball History!
  • Infinite Dragon Ball History
A new stage of Infinite Dragon Ball History (Level 5: Dragon Ball Super: Broly) will become available during the 5th anniversary. In IDBH you take on one challenging enemy per stage. It's important to note that the difficulty doesn't necessarily increase with every new stage and sometimes stage bosses have additional bonus effects like locking unit switching, sealing super attacks, being immune tio stuns, etc.
Challenging this stages costs no stamina and rewards Dragon Stones and other resources upon completion. You can use only 2 support items, Continues are not allowed but you shouldn't waste dragon stones on continues anyway. The Missions reward you for clearing each stage as well as the whole level and encourages using units from specific categories with bonus rewards.
WARNING: an extremely challenging End-Game Content


Super Battle Road
  • Super Battle Road
Super Battle Road stages will be open daily during the time of the celebration. This is a very challenging team building event. There are currently 3 sets of 10 levels to challenge. The dificulty increases with each new set of stages. Each level has a a restriction of what units you can bring, either mono types or specific category-only units. The enemies of each stage are chosen randomly.
Challenging this stages costs no stamina. You can use 4 support items but Continues are not allowed but you shouldn't waste dragon stones on continues anyway.
Clearing each level rewards dragon stones and a special item called Victory's Light that can be exchanged in Baba's Shop for other resocures (mainly Grand Kais). In addtion there are special missions that reward an LR unit that can only by obtained from this missions. Each set of stages has it's own LR unit.
WARNING: an extremely challenging Late-Game Content


Extreme Z-Battles!
  • Extreme Z Battle
Extreme Z-Battles reward Z-Awakening Medals which are required to Extreme Z-Awaken specific TUR Chracters. In EZA Battles you battle a character that grows in level and strength each stage. Upon clearing the first 30 levels you obtain all the necessary Z-Awakening medals to Z-Awaken the character. You can continue fighting and climbing levels after that to obtain Hercule Statues and farm Zeni. See how far you can go.
The first 30 levels also award 1 Dragon Stone upon first completion and have their own missions so I sugest doing those, even if you don't have the characters that Z-Awaken. I also suggest to climb as high as possible to farm Zeni. You might think you have an abudance of Zeni but Extreme Z-Awakening are extremely pricey and with more EZAs coming the the future it won't hurt to gather as much as possible. Better to have too much than run out and not being able to awaken a unit. Also atempting a level for the first time doesn't cost any stamina. Only rechallenging a level requires stamina.


Extreme Z-Area: Zero Mortals Plan!
  • Extreme Z Area
Similar to Extreme Z Battle, this events are used to obtain extreme z awakening medals for specific units but the structure of the event is much different. Oposed to climbing levels this events have a limited amout ot levels (usual 2 with 2 difficulties). The medals you obtain are rewarded based on the stage you choose and path you take when playing the level. Also the medals are awarded from picking them on the map (pink capsule) rather then being awarded upon defeating the boss.
Another very important difference is that this stages can only be challenged with certain characters. There is a very limited pool of units that can be used in addition to one or two units that must be used in your team. The units you must use are F2P while the others are not so it might be difficult to build a team. Because of the team-building restrictions the difficulty may vary.
During part 2 and 3 two Extreme Z Area events will become available so we will talk about them in more detail at a later time.


the 21st Virtual Dokkan Ultimate Clash!
  • Virtual Dokkan Ultimate Clash
To unlock Virtual Dokkan Utlimate Clash (aka. Battlefied) you have to reach rank 150 or higher. When entering the event you select up to 112 units however you can only use units of UR rarity or higher. Once the units are selected and locked you cannot use other units until you either win, lose or retire from the whole event. Important to note that once you have selected a unit for one battleit cannot be selected for another team again in that run. In addition, this mode allows you to use units with the same name on the same team.
You take on one enemy per stage and build a new team for each enemy. There are three levels and defeating all enemies of the level will unlock the boss battle. Each Enemy has some kind of Bonus effect such as, absorbing Ki-Based Super Attacks, Healing, Lauching multiple Super Attacks per turn etc. Depending on this Bonuses and your Box the difficulty warries. Battlefield resets about every 30 days where the enemy types are changed. With every reset the missions also reset so try to complete all of them everytime they become available. From time to time all the enemies are changed (not just their types) and sometimes there are also special themed battlefield opponents.
Challenging this stages costs no stamina and rewards Dragon Stones and other resources upon completion. A special treasure called Battlefield Memory is rewarded for clearing sages and missions. This treasures can be exchanged for a selection of LR units of other resources in Baba's Shop. You cannot use support items, Continues are not allowed but you shouldn't waste dragon stones on continues anyway. Missions reward you for clearing the Battlefield up to 3 times so try to clear the event three times to obtain all the rewards.


  • Farming F2P Characters
This time the returning Story Events don't drop any Treasures but they do drop Characters. F2P Characters are usually weaker than summonable ones and have a worse hidden potential growth but some are still extremely good and useful in specific events. INT Super Ghost Prank Super Saiyan Gotenks & Ghost is a prime example of such a unit. Not all units are good or useful, but they might get an awakening in the future. if nothing else it's another unique unit to add to your Box.
Here I won't cover all currently available F2P characters but will go over the basics. Please consult specific story events for more details on specific available characters.
Some events drop F2P units. Obtaining one copy of a unit means we recruited a character but they are still far away from their full potential. One way to make units stronger is to awaken them but there is another way. Each unit has a Super Attack (SA) Level and Hidden Potential Routes (Paths). SA can be raised with Kais (Elder, Grand, Dozing) or with another copy of the same unit. In case of a F2P unit we can just farm more copies to raise their SA level. It requires stamina but is saves us Kais for other units. Most units have a max SA of 10 so we need to farm 10 copies.
another way to strengthen our units is through Hidden Potential. Part of it can be unlocked with just orbs but the best upgrades are locked behind Hidden Potential Routes. This can be unlocked by using the same copy of the unit. With F2P units this is really easy. There are 4 different routes so we need another 4 copies. Please remember that Hidden Potential can only be accessed by units that have reached UR rarity or higher.
TIP: To unlock Hidden potential routes you can use an SSR to unlock the path of that unit (no need for awakening to UR. with TUR or LRs it's best to Reverse Dokkan them using an item called) Incredible Hourglass so you don't have to awaken units multipel times.
With 14 copies we raised the SA level to 10 and unlocked all Hidden Potential Routes. If you unlock every node with potential orbs you will achieve a 100% completion within the hidden potential and that unit will receive a rainbow star. This is the goal to achieve with every unit to make them as strong as possible.


This is the end of Part 1 of the Beginners Guide. Part 2 will continue in the comment section.

2020.06.11 18:23 Benster_ninja The Spirit World - Origin, History, and Denizens

Context: Once again (again), this is an entry of the Verse setting. If you desire more context I would suggest looking at some of my other posts on the sub.
(should I stop doing these context things?)
Between the Realm of the most holy and the Realm of all matter in the Verse, lies the Spirit Realm. A World of Translucent forests, Storms of emotion, and some of the most ornate cities within the Verse. It is here where the spirits of things living, dead, and everything in-between reside and prosper under the safety of the spirit gods.
The Spirit World was made alongside the other 7 realms at around the beginning of all of existence. The first spirits were the spirit gods, primordial and living essences of Soul, Emotion, and the natural Spirits of the Verse. Many uncountable Spirit gods began to appear as time went by and the Verse began. A Leader emerged amongst these gods known as Ego, God of self, alongside his partner Empathy, Goddess of Awareness. In their wake, they sustained power and became the primary gods of the Spiritual pantheon. Other notable members of the Spirit gods include, but are not limited to, Joy, Goddess of Happiness and Pleasure, Truth, God of Justice and Law, Battle, God of Rage and War, Know, God of Inteligence and Understanding, Grief, Goddess of Sorrow and Loss, Worry, Goddess of Need and Anxiety, and many, many more. Although most of these gods take the names of Concepts such as Pain, Love, or Perfection, other, lesser gods, will often make a more "normal" name for themselves. Most infamously Jalisar, Former God of Order turned to a God of Madness after the Astral war, or Arbira, Goddess of Pride. Aside from the Gods, most of the Spirit World is populated by, of course, the spirits. These spirits range in form and variety, from playful animal spirits, mindless and hungry souls, and many other spirits of all kinds of forms.
Of course, these are just some of the most known types of spirits in the Spirit World, with the possibility of there being more being almost positive.
The Spirits are often the most common type of being to interfere with the live of beings in the Central Universes. Paranormal phenomena, strange tales and sightings, and many other unexplainable events could be linked to the influence of the Spirits. However, the Spirit gods rarely directly interfere in the lives of mortals, usually to busy fancying themselves to the pleasures of the Silver Castles within the Spirit world. When a group of mortals reveres a spirit god or a group of spirit gods, they rise in their standing amongst the other gods (usually just by a bit but still a noticeable bit.). So, this makes the pantheon of spirit gods more or less a competition of who can get the most followers. Despite the rise of different faiths to different gods, these gods continue to constantly gain followers from across the Verse. They send out many kinds of spirits to act as messengers, cast curses on foes, and generally nudging things into places that they desire. One of the largest groups who worships the Spirit gods is the Feudalic Theocracy of the Five, a Feudal government with ties to the Center of Law. They have total control of Five galaxies, each ruled by a Galaxy King which have all been ordained by the Spirit Gods themselves. The entire pantheon of the Spirit gods is worshipped here and is often at odds with the larger Church of Many Stars.
The Spirit world, the Spirit Gods, and the Spirits as a whole are tricky. Understandable, not always Manipulative, most of the time, Strange, definitely, Good or Evil, no. They have little understanding for the morals of good and evil, unless their nature as a spirit is dependent on the basis of good and/or evil. They act entirely on nature or by the nature of others above and beyond them, acting in ways that would confuse most living beings that don't have an understanding of the nature of spirits as a whole. Since the beginning of time, their plans have always made things go in ways that were unexpected by those who had no idea what was going on behind the scenes. but for those who understand, you must also know that at least one or two spirit gods or other powerful beings of said nature have your name on a watchlist. so make sure you behave yourself when you see a 15 foot tall elven man with deer antlers and legs.

2020.05.02 23:21 Yarndoll42 His sister makes me crazy

Ok so here's the deal. I (41 F)have been dating my boyfriend (40 M) for about a year. We've had some challenges but things have mostly gone well. He is sweet and loving and all the good things...
And then there is his sister (38 F)
We live in the Southern United States
I believe his sister tries to be a good person. I do genuinely believe that. She has ADHD and dyslexia and possibly other unknown issues. She is not engaging in any kind of treatment for any of her issues. She is not any kind of addict and she does not have any developmental disabilities and is actually inteligent in a lot of ways.
She just has terrible impluse control. Like almost none at all.
And she's in and has been in bad living situations for most of her adult life.
She has 3 kids by 3 different fathers, none of whom are still in the picture. Her oldest (19) is autistic, so understandably her focus has been on him so she has not worked in 14 years. She lives off of food stamps, the oldest's ssi and the occasional child support she gets fir the middle child (14 M)
None of the kids go to school. She allegedly homeschools but they never have lessons
About two years ago she got herself evicted from her public housing and she and her kids were living in a tent for awhile.
Then she moved into the basement of the family home, which she shares with my boyfriend, who had moved home after getting out of the military.
This was all before I met my boyfriend.
So at first things were ok. Except I did notice his sister was kinda clingy and she tended to barge in and interupt our evenings. Always apologetic but it just couldn't wait... Even though the vast majority of the interuptions were either for something trivial, were something that had already happened and nothing could be done about, or were potential problems highly unlikely to happen.
I figured she just probably couldn't help it and sat and smiled through multiple interuptions even though sometimes they took so long my bf and I weren't able to finish what we were watching or doing.
I also started to notice that she came to him for every single problem she had, whether big or small and he'd drop everything to unravel it for her.
I also noticed a lot of her problems were being caused by her own bad choices.
Most of these centered around money. She doesn't budget well and tends to make a lot of impulse purchases and never manages to put anything aside for later if something came up and she is making no progress towards saving for an apartment.
So she ended up borrowing money pretty frequently. Usually not much at a time but at multiple points throughout the month and while she'd usually pay it back the next month she'd then just end up borrowing more than she paid back.
And that got to be a problem because really my bf didn't make much more than she did. And he already paid for half the "mutual" household supplies even though there were 4 of them and only 1 of him. And he pays more in rent than she does. And he paid for multiple repairs to her car.
I stayed out of it at first but as we got more serious as a couple and started talking about potential future marriage it started to become more of a problem. I was now in the mix because he and I were sharing more expenses like food, although we still live seperately, and since I'm visually impaired and can't drive I started paying towards his gas and his car maintenance.
Things were tight and I had to put some of the things I wanted for myself aside but I was willing to put our mutual goals as a couple first because as I understand it that's what couples do.
So it really started to bother me that he was sometimes going without and yet his sister was STILL asking for money on a regular basis. And he'd feel guilty if he didn't give it to her. But yet her own spending habits didn't change.
He had to push to pick up extra hours and that ended up cutting into our time together but we got through. I got a better job and things improved but as we planned for a future as a couple it became clear that his current job was not a good situation. So we talked and we planned. He chose a course of study and quit working in order to be able to go back to school on his VA benefits.
Before any of that happened we sat down and had a talk about how I was willing to support him any way he needed. Help with bills, books, whatever if things got tight but if I was going to help he needed to curb his sister's constant borrowing. He agreed.
However she was and still is continuing to make a habit of coming to him for literally Every. Single. Thing.
My favorite being the time our evening had to grind to a halt... 5 minutes before the end of what we were watching... so he could help her look up what temperature to set the oven to for baked potatoes.
Apparently Google is not a thing in SisterWorld.
And it's just really getting old. She frequently expects us to drop everything on a moment's notice to help her with whatever she needs.
Mind you by us I mean she expects him to come running and for me to sit there waiting while he deals with her latest crisis. Because to her EVERYTHING is ALWAYS a crisis
It's really made me start to feel like I am second place and sister and her perpetual drama will always come first. And im kinda not ok with that. I expect my life partner to have my back and make me a priority in his life, not constantly leave me hanging while he deals with the consequences of his sister's latest bad decision.
Even when she doesn't interupt our actual plans dealing with her onslaught of problems frequently leaves him exhausted and I feel like it doesn't leave him anything left to put towards our relationship. We have started to grow distant and arguments have cropped up.
But we are still holding on... Or were.
Things have not gone quite a planned. His old car has to be replaced. It's now cost us more than he originally paid for it in repairs am3d still struggles. He had been hoping to get paid work in his new field this summer but due to world events that may no longer be possible, and it turns out that despite what his advisor told him when he signed up he can't actually do his degree in 3 semesters instead of 4 so we might have to figure out a way to pay for that last semester we hadn't planned on.
So I buckled down, took on a bunch of overtime, we both cut back spending, I put some things off again and we've been busting our butts trying to make our future happen.
Cue sister. Who finally got her first job in 15 years... Because their neighbor started a food delivery business and basically hired her by default.
Ok. Great. She's on her way to being more independent.
Well that lasts about 3 days... And then she calls him out of the blue while we are in the middle of the interstate... To ask for $100. See apparently how this job of hers works is that she is expected to pay for the food she picks up out of pocket and then gets reimursed later. And somehow something went wrong with a money transfer and she doesn't have the money to keep working.
It's almost 8 PM. I've just finished my work day. My dogs need walked. We haven't had dinner. I'm starving. We still have a 20 minute drive to even get back to my place.
But she doesn't just need the money She needs it right that very second, or as soon as possible so she can keep working
So fine. Despite knowimg we really don't have it to spare he agress to give her the money. We hurry back. He drops me off and I put dinner together and then wait another hour so he can get back before we finally eat. And by then it's so late there's no time left to enjoy the evening because come the morning (my day off) I have to do laundry, grocery shop, clean my apartment and prep our meals for the week.
At the end of the evening I find out he actually gave her $200. Oh and she turned out actually not to need it but he let her keep in anyway until she gets paid again "just in case".
I was NOT happy. But he went on and on about how it's different this time and new businesses sometimes run into problems and he's definitely getting the money back as soon as she gets paid.
So I just sighed and said I knew she was trying hard and I understand him wanting to support her but I reminded him again- rather firmly- that we have to plan for several large expenses in the near future and we CANNOT afford to subsidize his sister right now.
But what's done is done and we are definitely getting that money back, right?
Nope...
Two days later she gets lost making a delivery and rather than take a moment to consult her gps or get her bearings she decides to just pull out of an unfamiliar random driveway where she can't see oncoming traffic and they can't see her... And gets into an accident.
So of course bf has to go pick her up. Give the tow truck driver directions. Tell her what to say when she calls the insurance company, basically manage the whole accident for her.
So now her van is undrivable. She can't work and her insurance is liability only so now she has to find avway to pay for repairs.
And of course that's where the $200 ends up going and now we don't know if or when we will actually get it back.
And i know it's family and we should be willing to help and not count the cost.
But I'm still mad. I'm mad because the accident didn't have to happen. It happened because she made yet another bad choice and this was the result.
I'm mad because I worked hard for that money and I had plans for it.
I'm mad because I feel like we are going to spend the entire rest of our lives rescuing this woman from the consequences of her bad decisions.
I'm mad because I feel like constantly having to help her is going to get in the way of us ever being able to build a better future.
And I'm sick and tired of the drama coaster.
He says he has to keep helping her no matter hoe2 many bad decisons she makes because she's family and because she needs help and it shouldn't matter if the problems she needs help with are her own fault.
And he also thinks I'm being selfish and unreasonable for expecting him to "give 100%" to our relationship.
Um I thought that's how relationships worked???
So help me out here please, folks of Reddit...
If we are/were considering a lifetime commitment is it reasonable for me to expect to come first?
Just how much help and support should he be giving his sister?
Do I need to be more forgiving, even if she continues to drain time and money? When donI have the right to say "enough is enough"?
I think some boundaries need to be set but he doesn't agree.
To be clear I don't expect him to stop talking to her or to completely cut her off.
But I feel like if we keep saving her from her mistakes she will never learn and will never gain any independence
So I don't want him giving her any more money, ever.
I don't want our plans interupted for anything less than a real emergency. (Actual emergency. Not a crisis of her own making, no matter how urgent)
I don't want dealing with her endless string of problems to eat into or interfer with his study/class/homework time.
And next time she creates a problem of her own making I want him to make her deal with it herself instead of diving in to fix it for her.
He really objects to that last one but I think that we are well past the point where she needs to start being responsible for herself.
But in the end he is my life and my breath. My always. And I don't want to end up ruining our relationship over this if I'm being unreasonable.
So if I'm blowing this out of proportion someone please tell me.

2020.03.31 07:20 Zycon_X Parents, your child is not a genius, everybody else, kids aren't stupid.

Children, particularly those under 13 years of age aren't at a point in their development where their inteligence can even be effectively judged, especially by those with a bias one way or another.
The honest truth is that children are simply inexperienced, in DnD terms a child is a level zero character, yes they may appear smart when they figure something out for the first time or stupid whenever they do something like run into traffic. However this is only a reflection of their lack of experience. If anything any perceived inteligence is a reflection of their learned skills, just as with all of us. So whenever your co-worker says, "My baby is so smart!" what they are actually saying is "Aren't I such a good teacher... please validate my skills." and vice versa. Wouldn't it be nice if we could just communicate this without involving the child. Just spend time with your kids sometimes and don't assume their inteligence one way or the other... they might just surprise you. and maybe ask your partner if you're doing a good job instead of boldly proclaiming your 3 month old's genius.
The reverse is just as bad though, I've heard so many people claiming that someone's kids are stupid. But they probably don't even know better. How about instead of mocking a child behind their back if instead you just say to their parent, "I think you should spend a bit more time with your kid... they were doing this dangerous thing and they could really use your help." Sure actually addressing the issue might make a parent upset... but you know what would probably make them a lot more upset? Having to take their child to the hospital because some but-head was busy laughing at the three year old as they tried to electrocute them self instead of being a good person. If they (the parent) still don't do anything then you have the responsibility to let someone in a higher position of authority know what's going on.
And hey, if it's not dangerous, why should you care?
(Edit): Yes I am aware that there are very few literal prodigies that could be considered textbook geniuses at a young age, doing what it normally takes much more knowledge to do, even in these instances I would argue that the child wasn't born with superior inteligence and even the youngest person in human history ten to get a college degree is more a reflection of his rapidly obtained experience than just his innate inteligence. either way, if a university is telling you that your child is a genius that's a fair bit better than a proud parent just declaring it.
TLDR: Children are inexperienced and undeveloped creatures. Neither stupid nor smart. they shouldn't be objects of ridicule or trophies to wave around, they are people.

2020.03.20 23:13 rainbowmadonna Long post about abuse and craving for intimacy

I'm a 25 year old male from Poland. I was a victim of abuse from my mother, who was punishing me emotionally for almost every mistake, even the smallest one. I always was a bright, promissing kid, intelligent and curious about many different things, always craving for knowledge. But for my morher it wasn't enough, I had to be the best in school, I had to have A's or B's in every faculty, i've never had a chance to be even mediocre in anything, because she was making me feel like shit for being less succesful in some way. When i did anything wrong she would be furious and humilite me, and ask me why i am like that and why i can't make things right for hours and hours. Many times I was on such emotional edge that I cried, begged for forgiveness and apologized for not knowing what is wrong with me. Sometimes when she was in a bad mood she could start a fight from scratch, she could find a way to find something wrong in what i was doing to scream at me and make me feel like shit. She could come into my room without any warning and push everything from the shelves onto the floor because i had a slight mess. And she could remember my every mistake for years, she could remind me in her screamed monologues of the time when i was in a physical fight with my friend in elementary school till the day that i move out to study at an university, just to proove me how bad I am and how she was dissapointed in me at that time. She would control me and deprive me of the time with my friends, that were the only light in my high school life. When I wrote her a letter in which I confessed that I was rescued from suicide attempt by my best friend and that I need change in our family, she turned the whole thing around to tell me that I was lying, manipulating and overreacting and that it was my fault. She would keep this letter and later use it to blackmail me, to make threats that she would tell about it to my father, who was not an addresee because I was worried about his hearth disease and was not involved in what my mother was doing. She taught me to scan my environment for even the smallest clue that something is wrong, that my behaviour is wrong, that someone's mood is off (because I think it's my fault), to overanalize every bit of information from another people that I annoy them. My father was uninterested in me, he almost never stopped mother from making me feel like shit nor he ever tried make me feel less like that. I always felt that I was a dissapointment for him, because I was a bookworm and not active like him in his childhood, because I had different interests than his beloved DIY and fishing, because I was obese when I was a child and was unmanly in his eyes. He rarely made me see his feelings toward me, but when he did it would hurt a lot. Sometimes I tried to prove him that I wasn't a dissapointment. When I was fifteen I heard him say to his friend that I will always be fat. My weight was almost 110 kg (242 lb) with something below 170 cm (5'6")for the time being. I was so angry and overwhelmed with that judgement that I found a strict diet in the internet and started excercising daily. I lost almost 30 kg (66 lb) in 9 months (I was checked by a doctor to see if everything is fine and if i wasn't starving myself but everything was ok). I started to feel that he respects me more for that, but before I reached my goal to have upper limit of healthy BMI I was stopped by my mother. She forbade my diet, gaslighted me and tried to convince me and my father that I had anorexia. I never felt any support from him (nor from mother), we could never have any meaningfull coversations, I could not tell him (or mother) any of my problems because it would only make things worse. I was abandoned in a full family, I was an orphan with both parents present in my life. I always felt sinful, bad, not good enough, not deserving love. I was bullied in school by people who I considered to be my friends, because I had no other social connections. I was also bullying each one of them with the whole pack if someone showed soft parts. We were like a pack of hienas, contantly fighting for domination and using every chance for cruelty towards each other. Those kids were laughing that I was fat, soft, emotional and had good grades. I had no place where I felt remotely good, home was a place where my mother abused me and both parents neglected me emotionally and school was the place where I struggled for best grades and was laughed at because of who I was. The only thing that saved me from breaking to pieces were my later friends, friends from high school. I was shy, sad and scarred, but with their attention and influence I managed to work out the ability to socialize, make new friends, share my feelings, make clever jokes and even to be able to be in the center of conversations for most of the time. They brought up what's best in me and made me able to live. It's a life full of issues derived from my trauma, but it is a life nevertheless.
Now I am in therapy and I try to make things better for myself but I feel like a shipwreck that haven't even managed to sail out of port before drowning. I was broken all of my life and I still am broken. I have been diagnosed with depression with it's roots in childhood abuse and I am struggling to live day by day, even with friends in my life who support me no matter what. But I try to make things better and that gives me a spark of hope for the future, even in those fucked up times.
And after all that backstory finally getting to the point: I crave for romantic intimacy, but I am unable to build it. I had my last romantic and sexual partner 7 years ago. That was radiant and fiery relationship, but after that I was only able to be in one sided loves. I'm considered to be somewhat atractive, a little chubby but muscular. And I also feel somewhat atractive, even if i constantly feel the need to lose weight. I am bald but I have my beard that makes it look manly and not weird. I can always make people laugh and make deep, engaging conversations. I'm not shy anymore and I feel more confident. Overall I know my flaws, but I know that I have every right to feel at least as sexually atractive and confident in me as typical male. I don't have difficulties with talking to and making strong emotional bonds with women, bigger part of my close friends were always women. Friend that rescued me from suicide attempt is woman and we have a strong, sibling-like friendship for almost nine years. I respect them, I share my emotions with them, listen to them, try to understand them, fight for their rights (I am politically engaged leftist and making masters degree in gender psychology), so it is not Incel-like thing with hating women or thinking that I deserve sex and relationship only because I exist or am nice to them. The problem lies somwhere else. When I met a girl that I start to feel close to, and realize that my affection for her is not only platonic, (like with most of women close to me that I'm not attracted to) , I freak out. My feelings and thoughts go for a rollercoaster ride of self depreciation, looking for even smallest things that i could've said or done wrong, intepretting smallest neutral gestures, words or lack of attention as a sign of rejection, as a sign that I am not good enough and not deserving to be loved. When I'm in love and spend time with the girl I like I feel like I am on my personal intelectual heights, I feel euphoric and give her my undivided attention, like my brain would be on overdrive mode, but those heights of natural confidence can be broken by single misinterpreted gesture in the time of the meeting or after we go home and I overanalyze everything that happend. I'm unable to present my feelings towards that girl, because I feel that my emotions toward her are laughable, that I am laughable, fat and emotionally broken boy in a body of grown, overweight bald man. I know that I cannot offer her something more than my friendship because I know that even if she would love me back, my constant scaning of environment in search of evidence that she doesn't would make her life miserable. And I cannot go away from her, because I am only able to feel romantic feelings toward women if they are already close to me (I'm demiromantic). It's loosing a friend, and friends are such an important thing to me that I feel like loosing part of myself when we split up for good. I am now in love with the most inteligent, empathetic and beautiful woman I have ever known, that is also my very close friend. It's a wholesome relation where we almost immidiately catched close contact a year ago and now know each other, each other traumas, fears and we support each other in our healing. And I'm keeping myself in friendzone because I cannot share my feelings towards her nor go away because of my trauma. I constantly feel like an imposter because someone so good like her likes so much someone as broken as I am. And I constantly feel like I am piece of shit because she thinka this is only friendship from my side and i am paralyzed to do anything, no matter if it's escaping or making a move.
Sorry for such long post, I was prepsring to share my feelings here for long time and it kinda splashed all over when it happened. Tell me what you feel about it.

2020.02.29 01:35 Blood_Slinger I created a joke PJ for Strahd. And now its a serius character.

First of all. Two things. One: Im using this as a way to practice my english since its not my main lenguaje. Two: This will have some spoilers from the "tutorial" stage of the campain Curse of Strahd (AKA the Death House)
So I was invited to a discord group where I and other 3 players and a DM would play Curse of Strahd. And I was thinking of a character that can be easily imput in the campain. And I remembered a video of Puffin Forest and a PC that he created that convince people that he was the best detective in the world. But actually he had a -1 in inteligence. So I make something like that but whit a rogue. And I was going to use the inquisitor subclass. Since I wanted to play a good and funny character. So then the story starts. I get to know the rest of the party and we all found the Death House. Whit two childs in the entrance seeking help. And my character as the goodie two shoes that he is. He gets inside the house and starts looking for clues about the parents of this childs. Then he finds a note talking about Strahd and because the mision of my PC was to find this Strahd and bring him to justice. Then I decide to start looking deeper. But while we are looking for stuff we enter a circular room where a voice told us to do a sacrifice. We didnt do it. And then a gigant monster spawn in the south of the room. And we all start running. We go trogh some skill challenge and after some good and bad rolls. We get to get out of the house. Whit my PC and another party member in the back of the escape. so the last part is a giant wall and the only scape is a door that is closing in front of us. The two party members in the front of the escape manage to scape. But my PC and his partner werent so lucky. So then the DM describe as some shadows starts to get closer to us. But before they get to close a figure like slenderman tell us that he can save us if we take his hand. My PC grabs his hand but his partner doesnt. Then the DM describes as I wake up in the garden of the house. Whit my body full of cuts and other wounds. And whit my partner nowhere to be found. And in that moment is where the sesion end. So now im planing to play my character as someone who seeks revenge in name of his dead friend, his body, and his god. What do you guys think. And again sorry for any grammatical errors.

2020.02.25 13:45 generositydepartment I need an advice. This will be a long post.

So this is what happened. English is not my native language, excuse me if something sounds out of place. I am 21y f. The rape happened to me when I was 11, so basically it was my first time. I didn't know what to do and how to react, but I was feeling very ashamed and didn't tell anyone . The person who did it was 26 at the time and kept terorising me for a couple of months after the first encounter. On april fools day he called me and lied he has AIDS/ HIV and passed it to me. I tried commiting suicide. Dark times. I tried coping by pretending that nothing happened and eventually I kind of pushed it on the back of my mind and forgot about this. As I grew older I started to lie whenever I got asked about how I lost my virginity and felt very ashamed about it.
However this has affected me deeply because I started to become very "ticklish" whenever someone touches me. I know people dont intend to hurt me but I always get defensive and try to avoid physical contact (even hugs and hand shaking) as much as possible. There are days in which my skin is hurting when I am dressing myself up. I hate being touched. Whenever I was with a man I always felt horrible and no matter how much I loved him I felt very bad when he touched me, when we were sleeping together I always had nightmares, and felt like I want to run away. Every touch felt painfull and my skin got goosebumps all the time. While having sex I felt terrified and sometimes I had flashbacks of the rape. Cuddling and sleeping together was the worst part since I have felt physically sick sometimes from this closeness. I also felt guilty because I knew my partners were not to blame. I never told any of my them.
One day I was going out with one man (lets call him T) and he tried to kiss me and I pulled away. Then T confronted me about it and wanted to know what's wrong. I gave him some bullsh*t explanation but somehow T saw right trough me and said he can feel something is messed up with me and wanted to know the real reason for my strange behaviour. T made me feel safe and started digging up my long forgotten past. He managed to have me tell him what happened to me, for the first time in my life i shared this,it felt very strange to say something out loud for the first time that you have kept inside for years. He remained a good friend of mine and i am thankfull for what he's done. Ever since then I realized how much of an impact this has left on me and I decided I want to face it . I started seeing a therapist and she is helping me a lot.
But this is only the background story. I started seeing a guy, lets call him D. He is artistic, inteligent, magnethic, witty, the most talanted person I know ,and very good looking ( to say that Micelangelo couldnt create something as breathtaking and pristine as him would be an understatement). He is the first person that made me feel calm, my skin doesn't hurt when he touches me, it is quite the opposite- I feel immense pleasure and I feel very attracted to him. When we sleep together I fall asleep effortlessly and wake up happy. I never felt like he was raping me, I never had nightmares while we sleep together, my body is not rejecting him, my skin doesnt feel ticklish and doesnt hurt, the only goosebumps I get while with him are from pleasure. Usually when someone touches me my first instinct is to pull away and get defensive, but this doesnt happen when I am with him. When with D the only place I want to be is closer. Somehow, in an unexplainable way, he managed to get trough my defense mechanisms and bring pleasure I never thought was possible.
He is now working abroad and I am very happy to share that I will go visit him for 10 days. He doesnt know about this story and I am very scared to tell him for a couple of reasons:
1) I dont want him to see me as something less, I dont want him to treat me like I am a sick person or something, and most of all I dont want him to feel sorry for me, because I dont want him to stay with me out of pity. I dont want him to see me as a victim, because I do not identify as one. I want him to see me as a winner and an acheiver. I dont want him to feel miserable over this.
2) I dont want him to think I am so atracted to him because of the effect he has on me- I like him because of all that he is , not because he showed me this new world. I adore the good and the bad in him, everything he showed me so far, and I want to get to know him more. I do not want my confession to potentially ruin our interaction or a future relationship. But I want to be honest with him because for me he is worth to keep.
Please give me your honest advices and opinions about how to aproach this subject, is it best to tell him? Have you been in a situation like this?
P.S. This poem always makes me think of him, I felt like sharing it:
"JADA" by 2pac
"U R the omega of my heart The foundation 4 my conception of Love When I think of what a black woman should be Its u that I First think of
U will never fully understand How Deeply my Heart Feels 4 u I worry that we'll grow apart And I'll end up losing u
U bring me 2 climax without sex And u do it all with regal grace U r my heart in Human Form A Friend I could never replace "
Hope you have a nice day, strangers, thank you in advance :)

2019.12.22 20:09 BaconLettuceTomatos Recent seperation, Unsure if im rushing into somthing new to fast.

Sorry for my poor spelling.
My partner (27F) and my child (15 mo F ) moved out about 15 months ago ( im 30M) I officially ended our relationship about 4 months ago after being together for more then 6 years. Our break up was very clean and we still talk everyday and I love both them very much.
I started sleeping around with friends imidietly ( 2 weeks after ) and then started on tinder about 2 months after that. I met afew girls for drinks and was not intrested for variouse reasons. I am friend with afew of them right now but its platonic.
I ended up meeting one girl (25f) who is still married and seperated ( no kids ) and left her husband 2 years ago and she now lives over 1000 KM away from him in my town. She dose not like to comunicate with him as he was abusive.
She is very inteligent ( holds 2 master degrees ), owns several homes, and earns more then I do, was intrested in my child imediatly ( which was very important to me ), and generally takes care of me by cooking and doing laundry like a 1960's housewife would. I should mention we have only been together for 2 months and spent every night together aside from 3 or 4 weekdays. Overall great.
I am now in a full blown seriouse relationship with her already.
But, I tend to over look the bad things. We tend to get into arguments over things because she lacks in straigh fowards communication. She wont ask for sex when she wants it and then gets frustrated when I chose not to go to bed. This leads to us both going to bed angrey and her eventually waking me up at 3-5 am to fuck on work nights. This is frustrating, the only way to solve is has been to go to bed with her.
She is abit needy calling me sometimes 10 times a day to talk, This was a surprise considering she is a very independent business women. I like and am frustrated with this at the same time as I feel she is checking up on me somtimes.
She has also sleeped around significally since she left her husband, with about 40 men. This kinda puts me off abit. I think I over look it allot because of her finincial position. She is not shy to be a "sugar mama" to me and my dauther. My last partner was in bad finacial situtation so this is nice. And takes allot of stress off me. Its nice not to have to constantly pay for everything. She will buy grocceries amd bring them over, dinner, and even bought me a new full work woredrobe. I will buy her gifts to, and bring her drinks like coffee or tea but nothing like she dose to me.
She recently started discussing moving in, she was planning to buy another house for her self and wanted to move into my places and signs a renters aggreement ( Habitual aggreement, not sure what its called in the US ) and pay half my morgage. This will mean in theory she is only a tennent and not my partner for legal reasons.
Even though when with her im 100% ok to play house and pretened I have a wife, I accualy really enjoy it with her.
When alone I start to analize my dession of the whole situation.
Before I introduce her to my daugther ( new girlfriend is willing to be a part of her life already ) I want to be sure about my decission. But its difficulty to orginize my feelings, not really sure what to do here.
TLDR; Meet new gf within 2 months of official break up, Thinking it may be to fast but its not bothering either of us

2019.12.02 20:07 mclarasm Best European breeders

Hi guys! Its my first time posting on this subredit and im looking for some guidance. Ive decided to get my first doberman, ive had dogs all my life, mostly rescues but im looking for a female doberman to live the best years of my life with me.
I'm looking for a highly inteligent, sensitive dog that will share the house with me but also will protect me and my family if needed. I would love to do some obedience, agility or free style with her too. What keeps pulling me to this breed besides his intelligence its how much they seem to be in tune with their owners. I want a dog to be my ultimate partner, im usually pretty good at communicating with animals especially dogs since a young age and i feel like it will be transcendental with this breed.
Im located in Portugal but willing to get my doberman almost anywhere in europe, i want to make sure its a responsible breeder that breeds for temperament and not only looks.
Please feel free to ask any questions or give me any valuable information Thank you!

2019.09.09 00:18 KillingItat24 I GHOSTED MY TWO YEAR RELATIONSHIP GIRLFRIEND

I am a fucking coward but my gut told me it was the right thing to do for both of us.
She was a highly inteligent woman and very socially savy. She could go into a party and make 3 friends coming out.
She was highly ambitous and family oriented. Very beautiful chick. Came from a large and loving family. That is actually what got me to stay as long as I did. Her family were hilariously funny and talk about unconditionally welcoming.
Re occuring problems we had was she was too dominating. I can be a pushover due to being a fatherly empathetic dude but when someone crosses my boundaries, I make it clear enough is enough. She could not stop taking control. A man wants to be a fucking man not be dominated. The last months were she bossing me around and telling people she s the one that wears the pants. She called me weak and a little boy following mommy around people...I laughed with it at first, come back with a "Yea im fucking spoiled boys haha" but I think she meant it. The last mos turn into a who wears the pants around here?
When i took control she bitched and whined and just didnt take heed...Screaming im a independent woman .
when she lead I d follow along. She was very passive aggresive..I didnt hold her hand. She clowned me in front of people..If im talking about a trip I took her too to her friends , she ll call it stupid and change the subject.
She was very grandiose, everything was her narrative and on her terms...meaning I go out and tell a joke to friends she would give me you re a dumbass look...While everyone awkwardly looks at me as da fuq your guys problem?? She tells the joke and im in it, I have to go along so we dont look like a buch of asshats in front of people...
It wasnt all that bad we had fun moments. But I communicated what I wanted from her and shed just bring it back to me being the problem and keep score when I didnt do this or that...So I was done.
No point. Her parents wanted me to marry her and it hurts me to say it because i loved them but I told them flat to their face " Thats a convo for another time"
The last convo is she call me to tell me about her day and I was short with her as is from the bickering the whole week. Told her call me and let me know when you re free. She was mad I didnt let her finish. And I just hung up and moved on.
She reaches out periodically but Im done..Im emotiomally drained and tired.
I want a partner that lets a man be a man, not dominate, undermine, communicate in a loving way, and doesnt constantly tests for insecurities and overly critical.

2019.08.12 20:02 Karnex97 Type me, please

- I am 22, Male, student.
- No
-Relatively strict parents, some neglecting, no religious influence.
- I am currently unemployed, I am studying for an engineer, I don't have any real work experience, but I like the school stuff because I like learning and competing with others.
- No, I wouldn't feel lonely, but I don't think I get drained from social interactions, I am introverted, but I can show extroverted characteristics without draining my energy.
-I am very physically active, I think physical activity stimulates my brain to work better. I prefer sport to any other event. I like to do bodybuilding or run.
- I wish, but I think my emotional int is way too low for this. I would be too strict and straightforward, not thinking about people themselves, but seeing them as tools for fulfilling my/comany's goal.
- I am very bad with hands on stuff, very uncoordinated. I think this is because I am lacking practice. I am type of person that can improve drastically in anything I do if I put the effort. For example, in video game League of Legends I was terrible at first, all my friends were way better than me in the first MONTHS of playing, but eventually I reached rankings none of my friends did.
- I am totally not. I am highly practical, and my belief is that people are born with artistic skill. Although I am hypocritical there since I think that you don't need to be born being good in math or science, and that practice is everything.
- I don't spend much time on past, I don't remember much from my childhood, but I often think of what I could say in argument, especially if I hurt someone with my words. I try to live in present moment but sometimes I get carried away. I mostly think about future, and my goals.
- I do lots of thinking, how long would that take me, does it fit my schedule, did that person ever help me, if not, should I ask for money, how much should I ask for, etc. I help for various reasons, but mostly to be in good terms with people.
-I may not understand question, but I am very logical and I think logic is more important than feelings, but sometimes I envy F- types for their higher emotional int.
-Super important, I think time is sometimes most valuable resource, and I try not to waste it.
-Yes, but indirectly. I like to organize people and give them reasons why to do something. But I don't care much if they don't listen to me, and I have no trouble doing things on my own, if for example people don't like my plans.
- Youtube if that is considered hobby, I spend around 90 minutes on average just watching videos... about anything but I would say mostly science, engineering and psychology. My other hobby is data analysis, but I don't know to program yet, so I use excel now. I like extracting info and comparing stuff, creating graphs etc. I take data from stuff I am surronded by, video games, sports, school etc.
- I don't have specific learning style, I open book, a notebook and study alone. I stuggle when they are people around me since I like to drift away and be nosy. I don't like when it is loud, since I can't focus, but I don't mind listening to music when not using full brain capacity sometimes. I prefer classes that involve logic and problem solving, but I am good in memorization too.
- I like to have everything planned out and then do it insmall chunks
- Being smart and full of knowledge because I would like to understand world and have a topic to talk with anyone.
-Money, at least to certain point, since I think financial freedom is very important.
- ^my aspirations are to be much more knowledgeable and have enough money.
- I fear of not having a job that pays enough, I fear that I will be forever alone (I had girlfriend before). Doing something I don't like makes me uncomfortable. I hate being wrong, being stupid, and being hungry lol
- I like to travel, or to be better than other people at anything.
- Overthinking, either in relationships with people, or future, sometimes it makes me sad.
- I think of myself as very realistic, but I do daydream, and that's why it is hardest for me to decide if I am S- or N- type. I like to do both.
- My first thought was 'How did I get into this room and how should I escape it' but I guess that is not the point of the question, but other than that I can't think of anything else.
- I take my time with important decisions, and I never change my mind, even when decisions are small. This goes to even bad side, for example I will tell my friends I will go somewhere at 5Pm and they say let's go at 7pm and i would say I already planned 5PM I will stick to it, and then later i realize I could have gone at 7PM.
- I think my inteligence is above average but my emotional inteligence is below average. I don't think much about my emotions and especially emotions of others.
- Unfortunately never, I always stick to facts and say Facts don't care about feelings.
- I don't, I try to follow rules, and respect others because I would like to one day be respected or maybe even make rules.
- Having enough money (for reference, I calculated it would be 5000$ a month take home pay for a single living in USA), having partner that cares about you and loves you for who you are, having 2 kids, and having time for hobbies and learning.

To summarize, this is some further thoughts and what I think I am:
I -> Although I don't feel drained from socializing, sometimes I do think I could have used time better. I think questions on tests are more extrovert oriented since question can be ''You dont mind being in center of attention'' and I don't mind , but if question is ''You love to be in center of attention'' I would answer no. Usually I get around 55-60% Introvert on tests
N/S -> I have no Idea, but I wish I am N since INTJ seem cooler than ISTJ lol, I get around 48-55% Intuitive
T --> as I said I am highly rational, with low Emotional int, I usually get 80-90% on tests
J --> extremely planning, even too much, I usually get 85-90% on tests.
Thank you!

2019.07.30 09:49 SmashJJ95 My (23M) best friend (23M) of 11 years, wants me to help him to build a business. I'm not sure why I'm so insecure about this.

3 years ago, he asked me and another friend we have in common that he wanted to build a business, at the same time he told us that he was going to be a father, all of this while we were at the middle of our career in the University. I, as his BF accepted, because i had so many ideas for this business and how to make it work. He (BF) and the other friend studied the same career that has to do with electronic components and more, ane, while I decided to study an IT career.
When he told us (me and the other friend), my first tought was "You don't need me and my other friend to build this business" since his girlfriend and mother of his child studied the same career, he could do it with her, and both of them could make a lot of profit, and obviusly use it for her child. But well, continue with the story, on the same day we decided the name and logo of the business (The name was my idea, and my BF did the logo). We started to work on it, but the uni was consuming a lot of so we suspended it, but I always had the thought that he doesn't need us.
Time later, he tried again to build the business and asked to me and our other friend to help him. I accepted again, but days later he told about this business to another 8-10 friend to join us, the thing was that the profit this business could make, was not enough to sustain the lifestyle of 10 people and their families, at that moment I was like "WTF he is thinking?" and it made my interest in helping him shrink. Hell, wait to make more money and then ask other people to join you.
Actually, both of us finished our careers, he has a low wage job to mantain his family, and is searching another one with more wage, but nobody is hiring him (I do not know why, he is really inteligent, and hardworking, I think it is beacause the interviewers see the ambitions he has, and decide to not give him the job).
So today, he sent me a message asking me again if I want to help him to build this business, he told me he will drop his job and will be focus on this business. And also he asked to this another friend we know, and to another guy i know but I don't talk to much with him to join us. I know that he has the feeling that I do not want to join him on this business, he had sent me memes and images about that "Best friend is who asks you to build a business together" and other similar things.
Most of the ideas to make this business succeed are mine (good location, services, schedules, logistic, etc).
I want to help him, for real, but he doesnt takes the time to think what is the best thing to do for this business. He:
-Wants to hire people when theres no money.
-Wants to spend time and money to create products that doesn't have market, even he doesn't take the time to study if it has a market, he wants to create products for I don't know, prove himself? prove myself or anyone? be millionaire?.
I told him yes, but needed to talk with him personally when I return to the city (I'm out of town), and told me he settled a reunion next monday with the another friend and the other guy. I've never been able to have a conversation with him alone, when he talked to me other times to help him, we were at parties with other friends near us. Last weekend he told me (I was high) to help him with this business, I told him yes, that even I'm developing a web page, but told him I don't trust about taking loans, and he stayed speachless.
The real thing is that I do not trust on him taking a loan if he doesn't organize what he wants to do, like spending that money on things nobody will buy.
I also accepted again this time to help him, because months ago, a guy from my career and generation, ask to anyone of our generation if we wanted to join him and be freelancers. If there is people who wants to start a business, why don't I? Also, i could use the project of this webpage i will do for my resume.
Now, i want to grow profesionally, travel, and also i have an idea for an app and create another business. Business that that doesn't contemplate my best friend, because he dont know nothing about IT.
I love this man so much, like a brother, I care of his family too (Girlfriend and child). I don't want to lose his friendship, or fall in debts, or see him falling in debts too.
Is it ok to help him full time in this business?

PD: Sorry for not being specific about what is this business about, and other things but i dont want to people recognize me. And also, sorry for my grammar, english is not my first language.

TLDR: My best friend told me he wants to build a business with me and other 2 people, but he is so impulsive and make me so insecure about to be his partner.

2019.02.03 21:29 Goldchimpanzee Discussion about the klaxosaurs, manga and anime:

Since the ending of the show, i've watched it once, since it aired, i've been wondering something about the klaxosaurs, specifically about their sanity. We dont really know much about the klaxosaurs, from their point of view, soo i've been wondering about whether thay have a mind of their own or not. I'm talking about how they became bio mechanical killer giant mecha. We know that they were place in male female pairs inside smaller robots, probably the lil pill bug guys we see in gran crevasse, and we know that they either consumed lesser klaxosaurs to get bigger, klaxohime said that the strong consumed the weak, or a bunch of small ones stuck themselves together and fused, the big guy from the episode were genista stampeded and the plantation killing boat from grand crevase that had an amalgated core. Im curious about how their minds became after the whole fusion and hidden underground for 65 million years affected their psyche. Basically there should be two extremes here, either they completly lost their minds, as they mind melded and assimilated eachother they lost all sense of themselves, wich be really creepy, klaxohime in this case being the only one left with some form of inteligence, possibly being delusional, thinking that her brothers and sisters are still themselves while they became mindless killing machines. REAL CREEPY. Or they sort of kept themselves, either becoming a hivemind, which would basically have them be the same thing as virm( This case would probably also explain virms origin, and might render the ending, the Virm hivemind that ruled over the galaxy got replaced by the klaxosaur hivemind, and the same thing happened in the past to virm, meaning that it might be the nature of the galaxy, lige consolidating itself into hivemind, assimilating other species until another one became a stronger hivemind and replacing them, the virm and klaxosaur thing just being a normal cycle in the galaxy for exemple). In the second case, it then poses the question of individual klaxosaurs, when they were created, does the stamen devour the pistils mind( or vice versa, kinda like zerotwo with her ex partners, possibly being haunted by visions of the obes they devour), or the stronger mind eats the lesser ones, each klaxosaur being a single mind, of one of its original pilots. Or is each imdividual klaxosaur a small counsill, if you will, with each mind, possibly in the thousands for the bigger ones, sharing control of the body. The third possibility would be that the klaxo becomes a new entity, kinda like the fusions from steven universe, changing with each mind it consumes. Im just really curious about this, especially since this isnt really discussed here. Im curious about your opinions.

2019.02.01 12:00 autotldr The most powerful person in Silicon Valley

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 96%. (I'm a bot)
As Son explained at the time, he needed this much capital because "The next stage of the Information Revolution is underway, and building the businesses that will make this possible will require unprecedented large-scale, long-term investment." Now he was ready to start what Bloomberg has called "An all-out blitz on the heart of Silicon Valley."
When Nauto CEO Heck met Son for the first time, Son was dressed in jeans and slippers.
Khosrowshahi says Son's backing will be key to helping him build Uber into "The Amazon of transportation." And when Housenbold first met Son, the SoftBank chairman told his future Vision Fund partner, "We are going to change the world."
After earning a degree from UC Berkeley in economics and computer science, Son returned to Japan and launched SoftBank in 1981.
Son did as well, but another Vision Fund partner did participate-and Son met privately with bin Salman that week in Riyadh.
Son is working to ensure that the Vision Fund can survive, with or without Saudi money: SoftBank secured some $13 billion in loans from banks last fall, including Goldman Sachs, Mizuho Financial, Sumitomo Mitsui Financial, and Deutsche Bank.
