/queue REM

Disclaimer: I have no problem with World of Tanks at all, any part of it, no matter what.  Honestly, I do not.  Except paying to win, stats-only focus, clan wars, sprem, m3lee, kv-5, hills, rocks, trees, flags, ponds, birds, crumbly houses and a total lack of women....

"This one goes out to the one I love...."

Or, more precisely:

"This one goes out to the lemmings I love...."

man, I was asuch a _huge_ fucking REM fan

'Who tf you talkin about fkd?  You mean the lemmings that all go the same direction at map start?'

Nope, not at all.  I'm talking about those who say, "The KV-5 sucks!" back when it was cool to say the KV-5 sucks.  Then, when unicorn x plays it, they go "The KV-5 rules!"

the ass of a KV-5 ... kiss that ass!

I'm talking about those who only watch replays of unicorns who sell theyselves and they (sry, I do street talk lots 'they' is hip ... comic sans, not so hip...) replays on the forums.  I'm talking about those who hate arty just to hate arty cuz the rest of the _cool_ forumers hate arty cuz unicorn1, unicorn2 & unicorn3 hates arty.  Or they hate german tanks just to hate german tanks, afterall, u1, u2 and u3 hates german tanks, or must be in clan x and must platoon with player y and must pat the back of dude z on the forums, and disrespect the rest....

And when clan x (it was x right? I lost my lettering) gets beat by clan y, we'll follow clan y, and when the m3lee is proved good by player z, we'll suddenly stop hating the m3lee <-- mebe, if player z can pull off that thar win rate!!! (stats!).

Really ... /cocks-head-rolls-eyes

Really?!  Realy really?

Come close now, got some words .. c.loser .. ever closer than that.


This is a recent email I sent to my nephew who asked some life quesitons.  It applies:

Preserving sense of self is important.  Failure at it will happen.  Mark only the successes. 

I watched this doc on military channel where a ww2 vet from pacific theater told the story of how all the other troops were pulling the teeth out of the dead Japanese soldiers for the gold.  He decided he was going to do it too.  An older guy saw him and before he could get really into it the guy subtly talked him out of it.  "I wouldn't do it if I were  you" he told him and said other stuff that made him think.  Made him realize it was ok to be different than the rest.

Sadly, we are designed to be lemmings, follow the crowd.  Some of us fight this, look at things differently.

Don't let anyone tell you what career to have, or what girl to marry, or what stuff to watch.  Don't rebel to rebel, but don't conform either.  Draw from the lemmings what good they can offer, then look for something they missed <-- they miss lots.  Sometimes, it's fun to just be different and piss them off.  Every revolutionary worth their salt said "fuckoff" to the status quo....

In our religion, politics and vid games, most of us just follow the herd, and preach to those who also don't do the same.

rage against the dying of the light....

And now, let me be clear.  Let me use an example.  This is just an example.  This is just an example of how people think, how I think, and what makes me go "WTF?!?!?!"

A. the great-unwashed (those with purple stats mostly and then, all those without purple stats that follow the purple stats guys) hate arty.  tl;dr: hate arty.

B. the subjects of A above devote their lives to this game (in some form or fashion.  I know I do to an extent.  I.e., I play almost daily, for well over 2 years now -- I was 5,000something member of beta <-- big deal right?!).

C. the makers of said game -- World of Tanks mind you -- put arty in the game.

D. we will hate those who play arty (aka, "the players") who did not make arty, who did not put arty in the game, who did not design arty, who had no say over the existence of arty, who simply play it and stuff and stuff and stuff.

^do you see how batshitstupidfuckingstupidcrazy this is?

Socrates would _not_ fucking respect your asses for this.  You would _not_ be his disciple.

The lack of proper logic here breaks my brain.  The lack of motivation to understand philosophical first prinicples, prime rules, source causes and thermodynamics, breaks me to pieces.  It kills me.  I am now dead (good! we hate you fkd!).

Raging on the forums about people playing arty in light of the above (of _the_ above) is equivalent to posting your political views on facebook, for those who have, by now, unfollowed you for it.  It is incalculably an inefficient means of affecting the change you want -- no more arty.

If you want to effect/affect/prefect government, do you:

A. post it on facebook.
B. rage online in
C. write your local politician/show up at a rally/knock door-to-door?


The Ron Paul example:

For years, I've had these younger friends constantly telling about Ron Paul.

Alert!!! Politics coming!!!

Yes, I now support and like Ron Paul (yes, he is retired from his office in the U.S. Senate).  These guys sent me emails, spammed me with his thoughts and speeches, etc.  I rolled my eyes, didn't care.

Then, one day, on my own, I caught something he said.  I went, "hey, you know, that makes perfect sense."  Then, I caught something else he said and I went, "hey!" again.

Before long, I loved him.  The guy was spot on. I became a believer.

Ron Paul was different, not a lemming-following, anti-"The Man", etc.

I couldn't wait to go vote for him in the last presidential election, in the primary for my state.

I went, I voted, I told.

I couldn't wait to tell my friends -- these guys who put bumper stickers on their cars, make his banner their banner, make "Ron Paul" their face book cover photo, email sig, etc. -- I talk to them.  Get ready for it....

THEY ... DID ... NOT ... GET ... OFF ... THEY .. SORRY ... ASSES .. AND ... GO ... VOTE ... FOR ... RON ... PAUL .. WHEN ... IT ... REALLY ... REALLY ... REALLY ... MATTERED!!!!!!

i mean, honestly, they didn't.  i was like mel gibson (as william wallace, braveheart y'know) after he realized robert the bruce had betrayed him.  i asked why.  they said they were busy. forgot. didn't register ... i ... i ... i was devastated....

fkd as William Wallace (i know i know, sessy)

I could not believe it.  I was floored.

After that primary, there would be no other, in history, chance to do anything about ever getting Ron Paul in office, ever, ever, never, ever, neverland peter pan....

this is honest to god the _only_ peterpan related image I could find

I realized.  I understood.  They were sacks of shit.  It was easy to make him a sig, or a cover photo.  It felt good to spam those who didn't want it with the shit, but when it came to work that wouldn't get an immediate response/reply/epeen/flame (i.e., internet shit), they were like a shit popsicle <-- fucking worthless.

And so, I say, to all you lemmings of World of Tanks who never miss:

A. a chance to flame someone who likes  a german tank.
B. a chance to flame those who make the mistake of revealing they play arty.
C. a chance to praise a unicorn and hate a 'baddy'

^think for your everloving motherfucking selves.  Get off your fucking asses and make a support ticket about arty, or email a dev, or support a competitor game, or play a scout, or post an intelligent response in the official sticky on arty put there by a mod, or actually try that arty out or that german tank out or that KV-5 out ... BEFORE YOU LEARN IT ACTUALLY ISN'T SO BAD AFTER ALL BY SOMEONE ELSE'S REVEALING!!!

Devoting your lives to a game with a key part you hate, placing your precious time on this earth in the hands of devs that you should doubt over that key part (that _you_ -- not me -- don't like) THEN trolling pubbies with hate is equivalent to supporting Ron Paul when it suits you, when easy, yet not voting, not doing dick for him when it couints.

"But fkd, aren't you just raging cuz you devoted yourself to complete the entire german tree waaaaay tf back, and it hurts your feelings when made fun of for this?  And aren't you just bitter cuz your stats are _not_ purple? you are _not_ in a unicorn clan?  Aren't you just a female bleeding tween legs and out of tampons?..."

Totally.  Entirely.  Surely and yes.

...but I'm still right....
