    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.

    Finally adding attack effects, lol. Just got the normals done now, going to work on the specials. They aren't as accurate to source as I'd like, but they'll have to do for now.

    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.
     
     
    Speaks for itself ;)
     
    I'll try to share more pics later. :)

    The "Whats New" menu on the top bar has a lot of new options on it.

    You can now filter forum posts and status updates easily, and it has a few 'generally useful' options.

    All in all it should make finding the stuff you follow and staying current much easier.  
    Hope it helps.

    It's been awhile, my family and I are taking it day by day, and I know everything's going to be fine. Grandma passed away peacefully in her sleep, her death was tough to endure, and the fact that I was one of the pallbearers only made it tougher, but I'm doing alright.
     
    Also, I understand I have a knack for posting some rather sensitive things, and I feel like I owe an apology to everyone here, I don't know why, but that's just how I feel. My main reason for posting as such is the fact that I like hearing others opinions on stuff like that. I know that may sound strange, but that's just me being me, and I would never post anything to cause trouble or to insult anybody, that's a promise. 
     
    With that being said I should be able to return tomorrow, I miss this place.
