  1. Yesterday I had to run a coworker to school to pick up his son.  His son is in fifth grade. He explained that his son was having issues with a bully. He had already told his son the usual thing on how to handle it, "Tell the teacher and everything will be okay." 

     

    Well, his son did just that, and nothing was ever done. In fact the teacher would just turn the kid away with the words "If I didn't see it happen then I don't believe you." She even took away his recess time on one occasion for "lying."  This has been going on for awhile, and this Thursday his son came home with a  bruise on the back of his head. The poor kid has just gave up at this point, and he told his dad. Since nothing was done about it his dad just told him if he has anymore trouble to just strike back. And here is where it just goes from bad to worse. Although his son did stand his ground and actually did put the bully in his place, the teacher, who turned a blind eye all this time, sends him to the principal's office. Thankfully the principal was a bit more reasonable and has actually had similar incidents with this teacher. The only down side is that my coworker's son got suspended for one day, the upside is that the bully has been suspended for a whole week. I personally think his son should not have been suspended, and I personally don't blame him for telling his son to fight back, especially since the teacher was being a snob. 

     

    My personal thoughts on this: This tells me that all these anti-bullying campaigns that are advertised are nothing more then a big joke. If the teachers and sometimes principals aren't doing anything about it  and eventually the victim will snap, thus taking matters into their own hands. Imo this is what causes the majority of school shootings, granted some are done because some people really are that messed up, but hopefully you get what I mean. Worse yet, when such incidents occur, the media always blames video games, music, gun manufacturers, and in some worse cases the parents. In some cases the bully will get off scott free. This is just one issue where your damned if you do something about it, and damned if you don't. 

     

     

    Comments? Opinions? Thoughts? What do you make of this situation?

      This is just a result of why bullying is always a problem. People don't want to deal with it, they wouldn't have to if it weren't for immature students starting trouble, if the bullies understood that what they do is a waste of their time, then bullies wouldn't be a problem.

       

      But bullies exist because that's just how our world is, there's people out there that are just plain evil & heartless. Lazy teachers and false assumptions are just some reasons why bullying is a major problem in the world. They're the younger equivalent to criminals.

  2. I figured I'd show off some swords from my collection. While most of them are katanas, some are replicas based off anime and video games. I've got three to show for the moment:

     

    The Master Sword as it appears in Twilight Princess, but with a silver paint job around the grip, and the Elucidator from Sword Art Online.

      @Darklight Sweet, I'm still looking for that one myself. I've also got some swords from Bleach, Blue Exorcist, and Scorpions Katana from MK: Deadly Alliance. What others do you have bud?

      Nice collection. Whenever I get a permanent place of living, I'm thinking of buying a keyblade for the wall of some sort and hanging my katana up there too. The katana is nothing special, just a katana.

  3. Well.....Trump signed it :/ https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cnet.com/google-amp/news/trump-signs-bill-repealing-us-internet-privacy-rules/ But, as what @Beautiful Futanari Grace said, the ISP's have reassured, in a newer post: http://www.isportstimes.com/articles/26951/20170403/comcast-at-t-and-verizon-reaffirms-commitment-on-customer-privacy.htm that privacy has always mattered to them. Still, I was hoping Trump would have put more thought into it before signing, your running a country, not a company, and I may be wrong, but he appears to be treating his presidency no different then his business. As for the ISP's, whether you believe what they say is true, or if you call bull, their is definitely a feeling of uncertainty in our midst. I guess only only time will tell............
  4. @Beautiful Futanari GraceInteresting, Suddenlink also put out an announcement: https://www.suddenlink.com/privacy
  5. They are trying to make it so services like Verizon, AT&T, etc. will do anything what Google and Facebook already do now, which is gather data based on your web history and sell it to consumers. But Google and Facebook have never done anything to put people in danger, well at least my experience, I can't say anything on the behalf if others obviously. This on the other hand will also sell things like: internet history, app usage, health data, financial data, mobile location, etc. Worst, they can do this without your consent, so if any personal info is given your pretty defenseless. No matter how you look at it, it's messed up. They only way to get around this and maintain your privacy is to only visit HTTPS websites, or use a VPN. You can also use TOR, but I've heard it's slower compared to using the web like normal. This is just what I could find via Google. I just hope this bill is vetoed. In addition to privacy, another thing we should be concerned about is if this bill does pass, what are the chances of a snow ball effect. Follow me on this: The bill gets passed another country likes where this is going, so they too decide to end online privacy. Then another, then another, see where this is going? Let that snowball roll down hill until this issue gets bigger and bigger. And who is at the bottom of the hill to take all this crap?
  6. I try to stay out of politics but it looks like yon can kiss your online privacy goodbye come next week:

      Hopefully congress finishes its investigation into Russia's interference with Trumps election before December.

      @RobotMonkeyHæd if worst comes to worst, will this community (MFFA) be able to stay up and running if privacy becomes a problem? Can HTTPS be configured to this site?

  8. Wow, looks like Mugen Free For All turned into Internet Explorer for a moment their. Oh well, nice to see everything's back to normal lol. :)

  10. A built in feature that automatically patches the character, stage, screen pack, etc. to work in the newest version of Mugen. Example: A certain character is exclusive to 1.0 or 1.1, and as the game loads, it upgrades it to work in 1.2. Probably impossible, would awesome nonetheless.
  11. Doctor Fate has been confirmed!!! Here's a sneak peak at his gameplay :D The roster so far:
  12. My parents sadly had to cut their vacation short, mom fell and broke her wrist. It's rather baffling, they was just walking around seeing the sights, and mom tripped over her feet, it wasn't even that bad of a fall, it's unfortunate as they really needed this vacation, everyone in the family even said they needed and deserved it. Her wrist may need a cast or splint, but other then that she's alright.

      Nobody else could've taken care of your mom so you still could've gone? Well, did you get a refund?

       @SSBK65 I'm afraid I don't know the full details, I'm just repeating what my mom told me. As for the vacation this was just a trip for my mom and dad, a ten day vacation to be exact, I think a Valentines treat of sorts. This was just spare money that they wanted to spend for fun, nothing in particular was planned, and no work was scheduled for this week and everyone was off, so it's not a big deal whatsoever.

  13. What does one do when you've got the house all to yourself for the next ten days? (paces around room)

      I'm more of a shooter and fighting game person. If you can play online, that's still a good option. Otherwise, a really good single player game that can last you.

       

       

      Or just go outside.

      Likewise, I also enjoy survival-horror, and hack' n' slash. I'm not too big into online, though I will play it occasionally

       

      As for going outside, don't need to tell me twice, as much as I like gaming, It's not enough to keep boredom at bay, at least for me. That when I usually just go cruising around town. :)
