  1. I actually think Luke Cage is tied for second with JJ, it was really well done. As for IF, its probably the weakest out of the 4 shows but not as bad as the reviews made it seem to be. Most characters lacked in this series (Ward's had potential only if they couldve made him interesting) and the fighting was subpar. The ending was very unsatisfying and it seemed they were trying to do too much with too little. Lacked focus and theme conpared to the other series.
  2. I'm really disappointed I missed out on all the Chancey/Porygon opportunities during the Valentines event. I have yet to even see a Porygon. Did manage to catch a bunch of Lickitungs though for gen 4. My school has been spawning a lot of gen 2 starters and I'm halfway to a Typholsion and Meganium
  3. For all of you who use spotify, I think it would be fun to post up your most listened songs in 2016. You go to genre's and mood < 2016 wrapped 1) Black Lipstick - Chicano Batman 2) High - MadGibbs 3) Ray Gun - Ghostface Killah/BBNG/DOOM 4) A Puro Dolor (Balada) - Son By Four 5) Rapp Snitch Knishes - MF DOOM 6) Wish It Could Last - Pelefics and Electric Youth 7) Fancy Clown - Madvillian 8) Poppa Large - Ultramagnetic MC's 9) Lovefool - The Cardigans 10) Burgundy Whip - Bad Neighbor
  4. I feel like YGO forums in general have just been on the decline. If anything, I've seen a surge in activity in FB groups (like Zodiac) and the Yugi-Tube community has always been consistent. People are probably just preferring those platforms a lot more if they want to discuss the game since FB and YouTube are a lot more accessible if anything.
  5. So Winter is a potential online pedo? JC this whole thread was a trip to read
  6. Or maybe they dont want this forum to become DNF 2.0
  7. Finally hit 130 in the pokedex. I came back to SoCal for the week break I have and surprisingly there were Seels here which I needed. But it looks like its going to be harder to progress with this new tracker since I live in small towns
  8. Winter you are literally posting from /the_donald
  9. Goddam Winter every time I read a post from you I swear I get an aneurysm. Like how do you not see the double standards, hypocrisies, and ironies you post? As for the polls, they are statistics and probabilities, not fortune telling. They tell the likelihood of events to happen, not accurately tell you what is going to happen. Not to mention, Nate Silver out of all the pollsters gave Trump the highest chance of winning. Donald Trump is simply an anomaly. He managed to bring out people who normally wouldnt to vote among other factors that usually wouldnt happen on election day.
  10. Well I think I'll make my last post on this thread expressing my final thoughts on the topic. Last night was completely shocking and unexpected, Donald Trump is the definition of an anomaly. To make it clear, I neither support Trump nor Clinton - I voted differently and felt ok with it since Cali was going to be a Clinton state regardless. Had I lived in a battleground or really close state I'd feel obligated to vote for Clinton since, at the end, she is a much more suitable candidate than Donald Trump. I'd rather take a piece of poo than a bigger piece of poo. I wasn't completely surprised since, at the end, he still had a fair chance of winning and obviously his followers are seemingly unstoppable. That is my biggest issue with Trump however - his supporters are what is the scariest thing to me, not necessarily Trump himself. I have always been critical of Trump's supporters instead of Trump himself. He has brought out the most backward people from the woodworks and has brought out the most negative and regressive thinking of people by appealing to it. He has basically normalized irrational fear within his supporters and made it acceptable. You can obviously blame Trump for this, but the fact is he isn't forcing people to think this way - they have obviously always thought this way and are just finally expressing it. His supporters have always been cancerous and many are bigots. Majority are extremely irrational and lack empathy (look at Winter for example), and are aware of issues that are going but lack critical thinking and facts to support their irrational solutions to fix situations or issues. Before anyone says, yes I'm also equally as critical towards "liberals" and "sjws" but that is on a whole other topic and in reality, they are not the ones in power. In many ways, this new alt-right movement seems to be a childish response towards "pc culture" as they say, and it is purely based on irrationality and fear-mongering. It's backwards as fuck. With a Trump presidency, I feared most how he would change the political climate - will we know see more openly irrational people and bigots go into powerful positions? Will we know view it as ok to allow people in power to say some pretty racist or xenophobic shit, or propose openly stupid solutions to real problems we are facing? I hope not. As for Trump himself, there is nothing left to do but accept him as our next president. I really hope I am wrong about him and I really hope he does a good job in office, and I extremely hope he isn't as backwards as his fucking supporters are for most part. If he is anything like Winter is, God help us. I really hope for most part this was just a marketing scheme to win votes. I really hope he can mend how divisive the country is. The best we can do now is hold him accountable for all his actions. Nothing is really gonna change him not being president, but as citizens who are scared or worried we have too look over each other.
  11. LAPD is getting ready for riots and my campus email just emailed us to always have a buddy on us and don't be alone Shit just got real
  12. Something along the lines of "liberal" bias in the media when there is an equal amount of right bias everywhere else as well. I can't wait for this shitshow to be over though
  13. England always get a batch of good promising players but they always tend to fizzle out (unlike in other countries where they tend to develop or be more consistent). It might be because the premier league isn't really catering when it comes to developing young players, the only player I can think of that truly developed to be a world class player and stay there is just CR7. Then you also get anomalies like Scholes who refuse to play internationally and players like Carrick who get really underappreciated. While I do love the premier league since its always unexpecting, I do have to agree with the sentiment that it hasn't been the "best" league for the past couple of years, and Arsenal once again being moody in their performance, werent creative and making the most of their chances upfront. Koscielny was pretty off today as well. I guess I Tottenham played ok but its a game that shouldve been won
  14. I'm mainly getting this set for the nostalgia and Dragonite-EX. I'm pretty stoked about the Charizard, Blastoise, and Venousaur Spirit Links too
  15. Hatched a 10k egg today. Was hoping for a Dratini (I only had 18 candy for it) and immediately went to 89. God bless this event I might actually get a Dragonite now
  16. To be fair to them, they got really unlucky against Burnley and you got to give credit Burnley's keep. But yeah over Manchester has been shitty.
  17. Definitely, they need his passing skills and his ability to control the midfield and spread out play. Almost forgot about Schneiderlin, he definitely needs to play more.
  18. Thanks everyone for your help. I went into the shower and had a huge panic attack so I just said fuck it and went to urgent care. Turned out it isn't necessarily anything serious but just sinusitis and overall anxiety making me feel even more shitty. He said I confused my filling with a wisdom tooth lol which is a huge reliever seeing as I don't have dental insurance covered so I can probably cancel that appointment. That being said I'm glad one of the worst weeks of my life is probably over. Gonna call off work tomorrow and take a personal day of chilling. @Human Tetherball you were spot on with the nasal spray description. I'm really surprised by how strong it was and I've honestly never felt worse than by taking that medicine.
  19. I know this has probably been overdone a lot, but this week has been really hard and writing about this is kind of cooling the edge. I was fine last week up until Friday where I felt a weird feeling in my lower right jaw. I looked in the mirror and before you know it, I see my wisdom tooth creeping out in the corner. I instantly start stressing pretty hard since this is such a busy time (work, uni, and internship) and my head starts feeling weird (I'm guessing its due to because wisdom tooth creeping out, and stress and anxiety just made it worse. It's not really pain but just weirdness, I felt like I was having an out of body experience and kind of like drunk but I'm able to walk fine, and talk normally). So I rough it out Saturday and Sunday and I already had an appointment scheduled at the school health clinic on Monday for sinuses. So I go there, and the lady prescribed me an inhaler and a steroid nasal spray. I also called the dentist and have an appointment this upcoming Tuesday. I go home, and before I go to sleep I use the nasal spray and holy shit it made me feel pretty damn high. I slept pretty ok that night but I felt really on edge the next day and my anxiety has drastically increased. Moving around and talking to people helped so I went through the school day pretty fine, just worried about the shitty feeling in my head. Then I was feeling really good before bed so I decide to use the nasal spray again and I just lost it that night. My mind wouldnt stop running I was super anxious about what was going on with me, everything felt watery and I was breaking sweats everywhere. The whole next day at school I was on edge all day, I was feeling really unfocused and kind of dizzy, the feeling in my head didn't help, so I went back to the health clinic to see whats up. The lady that attended me on Monday told me stop using the nasal spray since I probably had a terrible reaction to it and gave me a neti pot. She also recommended I talk to a school therapist the next day. I go home, did some yoga and drank some sleepytime tea to kind of help relax me before bed, and it worked but I had to be up early tomorrow so I probably didn't get the sleep I wanted. So we get to yesterday where I was pretty ok all day up until night time where I felt my body sort of went into some shock-like mode (probably because adrenaline and anxiety has been in my system all week and its finally cooling down, but I'm not sure). So I worried about getting anxious which in hindsight is counterproductive since it made me anxious. I sleep for 5 hours and wake up at 5:30 and couldn't go back to sleep. There are moments where I feel ok but the uneasiness creeps back up. Its mainly when I'm still and not moving around, I noticed that walking to the bus stop I felt ok and just walking outside and talking to people make me feel better. So I'm kind of worried about going home and just tripping out hard because of my anxiety. The pressure in my head (not really pain, but my forehead and top of my head feel weird and kind of tight) isn't helping and I'm almost sure that is what has got me really anxious. Does anyone know any good "calming down" techniques or has experience anything similar to what I'm feeling right now? I won't be able to see a dentist until Tuesday, and I'm sure my sinuses kind flared harder with the nasal spray and is making me feel bad, on top of the anxiety. Thanks to anyone in advance.
  20. http://users.humboldt.edu/ygkim/ Thats the link to his website, he has all his lesson plans and hw problems w/ solutions if you want to practice it. Honestly if you know how to use Matlab or Matematica this shouldn't be too difficult. He also has posted links to other websites about R but I've never checked him, but his personal work is pretty great. He sure as hell made me comfortable using R
  21. I have taken 3 classes using R. For what specifically are you needing R? I can probably link you to some of my professor's online notes which are really helpful and example problems. The great thing about R is that there isn't a high learning curve to know how to use.
  22. This Halloween event is awesome. Just from my walk from the bus stop to my home I jumped from 69 Gastly candy to 139 and caught like 3 more Gengars (shitty CP, but hey I'd rather catch that than Clefairy's and Nidorans at this point). I'm definitely gonna hoard all the candy until I can find a worthy Gastly to invest in and evolve. I know Gengar is pretty shitty this game, but its my favorite pokemon so I feel obligated to have a pretty good one. Still need like a 100 km for Gyrados so hopefully I can get that before the event is over, and hopefully Niantic does similar events for Thanksgiving or Christmas
