I describe myself as shy when I'm offline and quiet when i'm online unless It is dealing with something I am passionate about. I am very easy to get along with and believe we should accept people for who they are and just try to get along

Man you're not that bad.
User avatar #4813 - cloudstrifeownsall (03/19/2014) [-]
Thanks, I usually don't have a lot of confidence because I rarely get complements about my face but things have been going pretty good recently I must say. I actually was elected president of the Audio Engineering Society Delta State Chapter today so I'm pretty excited. I've got my first big performance coming up soon too.... Two original songs and two covers. I was selected to go meet Michelle Obama at the educational conference in DC about soul music....

TL;DR I am usually quiet but today has been a good day. Sorry for wasting everyone that doesn't care's time
User avatar #4824 - unmei (03/19/2014) [-]
That's great! I'm glad to read that
I'm not very confident myself about my looks nor my personality, but I got great people by my side, even a boyfriend, so I guess is not that bad. Sucks to be so dependent on the opinion of others to feel better about oneself.
User avatar #4831 - cloudstrifeownsall (03/19/2014) [-]
Yeah, It is pretty crappy... I have conflicting personality traits as per my own diagnosis lol... I don't go out and party or anything because I'm introverted but at the same time I want to be liked... I want responsibility so I feel needed but then at then same time worry that I'm needed because I feel inadequate... It's a back and forth kind of thing. I want to play and sing on stage but I'm usually too shy to sing in front of even small groups, this show coming up will be a big test for me.

I guess the motto that I've kind of taken up is "it's going to be ok" regardless of what happens, you're still alive. I'm glad you are happy too. I hope everything stays good for you
User avatar #4841 - unmei (03/19/2014) [-]
Thank you!
I'm an introvert too and depending on the people it can take me alot to get me to talk to them. I really enjoy to be alone, but that doesn't mean that I don't enjoy good company aswell. I'm human anyways and I need others to appreciate me and be by my side, so I think I understand your feelings. I wish you good luck!

runes of magic used to lack balance, thats why i played it.

and WoW too, until they added resilience and seperated pvp from pve completely, and then took all the talents away which created imbalance. i had a prot war which pwned in pvp because i would gain attack power from peoples attacks through vengeance. They made that passive buff for PvE only, and that pissed me off.

Now i hit like a wet noodle. I had a blood DK who stacked mastery rating and never died because of my blood shield, i was so OP at that time, it took 5 ppl to try and kill me, it was great. i single handedly raided SW and began to death grip people near the train station and kill them. They were too afraid to come close to me because they would die, so id death grip 1 by 1, and if they stack on me, i go in the instance portal so they either follow or dont, either way id kill them if they follow.

great memories, i wish i could find MMOs that are as imbalanced as this.

lit·er·al (lĭtər-əl)
adj.
1. Being in accordance with, conforming to, or upholding the exact or primary meaning of a word or words.
2. Word for word; verbatim: a literal translation.
3. Avoiding exaggeration, metaphor, or embellishment; factual; prosaic: a literal description; a literal mind.
4. Consisting of, using, or expressed by letters: literal notation.
5. Conforming or limited to the simplest, nonfigurative, or most obvious meaning of a word or words.

Look, at this point you're not arguing with me anymore, you are arguing with the dictionary. It specifically states that it can be used to avoid exaggeration and is for factual statements. I'm not going to say I'm wrong when obviously I was fine to use it in that sense.

"Literally" means "as opposed to figuratively". If you're saying "literally" of something that is obviously true and couldn't be figurative, you are simply being redundant.

Stop playing the victim; you seem to me to be a rather intelligent person who has a big deal of trouble understand how to use a word correctly. I never seriously implied I was smarter than you, by the way.
User avatar #168 - cloudstrifeownsall (02/05/2014) [-]
Although it was never stated, it seems rather understood when your first comment is nothing less than an attack on intelligence. I think the word "literally" can be used as a measure of truth as well as the antagonist of "figuratively". I don't see why that is a reason to demean and insult someone. I agree with your statement about "literal" vs "figurative", that is completely correct but language changes every day. They add slang to dictionaries and adopt the current way of speaking as "the way of the times". I just don't see why my use of the word "literal" is wrong when it can be used that way.

Of course, this distinction is completely irrelevant to all of what I just said. You seem unable to understand one word of my clear, concise and eloquent reply.

I'm "trying to force on things that don't (sic) matter"? You don't think language matters?

There is a reason: idiots like yourself.

Also, your pathetic (I'm not using the word in the purely pejorative sense) should read: "Is there a purpose [...] to be a shit head to fucking idiots like myself or is it something [...]"

Anyhow, if you want to avoid exaggeration, use "really" not "literally". The word "literally" means something specific, as does the word "really". But of course if he was not to exaggerate, maybe he shouldn't fucking say "favorite", right? When you say "favorite" you mean something rather specific also.

I guess you are too fucking stupid to understand how words function; you can't just decide to use any word whenever you want, you know that don't you? Apparently not.

Owl is rambling much conspicuously to the dire but too so clever favorite happenstance.

Do you not understand that exaggerating and being specific have nothing to do with each other. You are trying to force rules on things that don't matter.

Stop playing the victim; you seem to me to be a rather intelligent person who has a big deal of trouble understand how to use a word correctly. I never seriously implied I was smarter than you, by the way.

Although it was never stated, it seems rather understood when your first comment is nothing less than an attack on intelligence. I think the word "literally" can be used as a measure of truth as well as the antagonist of "figuratively". I don't see why that is a reason to demean and insult someone. I agree with your statement about "literal" vs "figurative", that is completely correct but language changes every day. They add slang to dictionaries and adopt the current way of speaking as "the way of the times". I just don't see why my use of the word "literal" is wrong when it can be used that way.

My whole fucking point is that it cannot be, but look, it's okay, keep using words as it pleases you; we'll see if Orwell was right or not.

lit·er·al (lĭtər-əl)
adj.
1. Being in accordance with, conforming to, or upholding the exact or primary meaning of a word or words.
2. Word for word; verbatim: a literal translation.
3. Avoiding exaggeration, metaphor, or embellishment; factual; prosaic: a literal description; a literal mind.
4. Consisting of, using, or expressed by letters: literal notation.
5. Conforming or limited to the simplest, nonfigurative, or most obvious meaning of a word or words.

Look, at this point you're not arguing with me anymore, you are arguing with the dictionary. It specifically states that it can be used to avoid exaggeration and is for factual statements. I'm not going to say I'm wrong when obviously I was fine to use it in that sense.

1. In a literal manner; word for word: translated the Greek passage literally.
2. In a literal or strict sense: Don't take my remarks literally.
3. Usage Problem
a. Really; actually: "There are people in the world who literally do not know how to boil water" (Craig Claiborne).
b. Used as an intensive before a figurative expression.

That's my source. It seems to contradict yours.
User avatar #172 - cloudstrifeownsall (02/06/2014) [-]
That's where I found my definition also.
www.thefreedictionary.com/literal

The only difference is you looked up literally instead of literal which is just the adjective form of my word.
#173 - pkrbarmovie (02/06/2014) [-]
You do realize that the definitions still contradict each other, don't you?

Also, you said "literally", not "literal".

Let's drop this while it still hasn't got completely ridiculous, okay? You're a nice person and it was fun, but this is getting a tad pointless.
User avatar #174 - cloudstrifeownsall (02/06/2014) [-]
I agree. This was fun. Most people don't actually have an intelligent argument to put forth. Good luck in your future endeavors
#175 - pkrbarmovie (02/06/2014) [-]
I wholeheartedly agree, and bid you the same.

"Those were my favorite books."

Wow; what a fucking whooping exaggeration! Do you have mental issues or something? You seem to be extremely affected by stupidity.
User avatar #161 - cloudstrifeownsall (02/05/2014) [-]
"Those were my favorite books" is the statement. If the statement was not true and some other book was in fact my favorite book than yes it would be a fucking exaggeration you dickweed. It doesn't have to be some sort of radical statement in order for there to be exaggeration. Is there a purpose to your over-active need to be a shit head for no apparent reason or is it something you just can't control?
#162 - pkrbarmovie (02/05/2014) [-]
There is a reason: idiots like yourself.

Also, your pathetic (I'm not using the word in the purely pejorative sense) should read: "Is there a purpose [...] to be a shit head to fucking idiots like myself or is it something [...]"

Anyhow, if you want to avoid exaggeration, use "really" not "literally". The word "literally" means something specific, as does the word "really". But of course if he was not to exaggerate, maybe he shouldn't fucking say "favorite", right? When you say "favorite" you mean something rather specific also.

I guess you are too fucking stupid to understand how words function; you can't just decide to use any word whenever you want, you know that don't you? Apparently not.

Owl is rambling much conspicuously to the dire but too so clever favorite happenstance.

Do you not understand that exaggerating and being specific have nothing to do with each other. You are trying to force rules on things that don't matter. It's sad that as smart as you sound, you are too concerned about trying to prove it that no one will see anything other than a pathetic loser begging for attention at a computer screen.
#164 - pkrbarmovie (02/05/2014) [-]
I don't care what I seem like; I only care about what I really am. If you truly want to understand someone you should know this distinction as well as I should know the distinction between exaggeration and being specific.

Of course, this distinction is completely irrelevant to all of what I just said. You seem unable to understand one word of my clear, concise and eloquent reply.

I'm "trying to force on things that don't (sic) matter"? You don't think language matters?

Seriously, you must understand one thing; take one thing from this whole conversation and ram it up your fucking brain: literally has nothing to do with emphasis or exaggeration. Nothing. Please, try to understand this.
User avatar #166 - cloudstrifeownsall (02/05/2014) [-]
Look, I'm done arguing this. I'm sorry you are caught up on my use of the word literal. I'm just going to pretend that you are too smart for me and it is a useless waste of time and energy to continue this. I bid you adieu
User avatar #165 - cloudstrifeownsall (02/05/2014) [-]
Of course language matters. My use of the word literal is completely acceptable as it defines the truth of the statement. The melting point of aluminum is 1221 degrees fahrenheit, literally. The temperature inside the sun is about 15 million degrees celsius, literally.... not figuratively, literally. I'm not exaggerating these numbers.
