    Post: I have much bigger problems than just a (girl thread). Talk about anti depressants
    User: Cerrius
    Infraction: Minor Offense
    Points: 2

    Message to User:
    The Mystery Method, otherwise known as "how to manipulate women and take advantage of low self-esteem," would qualify as "misogyny." I'm not about to let H/A threads start taking that road.
    Original Post:
    I skimmed through this entire thread in about fifteen minutes, reading mostly what DoR had to say about his woman problems, and it can be surmised like this:

    - DoR meets girl and both feel attraction. However, he barely talks to her (if at all) due to approach anxiety and does not build upon this attraction.

    - DoR and girl hang out, but DoR's roommate dominates the conversation, ensuring that DoR again does not build upon her initial attraction. Girl most likely begins falling for DoR's roommate, as he appears to be of higher Survival-and-Replication (S-and-R) value than DoR.

    - DoR tries arraigning second hang out or date, but girl is turning cold because he is now of lesser S-and-R than she initially thought. But he still manages to get the one-on-one date (she gives him a second chance).

    - DoR has good initial date (or maybe he just thinks so). He does not touch her, aka applying kino, to show that he is comfortable with her physically and that it would be fine for her to do the same. They go to a party and again he fails to build attraction. He decides to move prematurely into seducing the girl and makes out with her while she is drunk, aka Fool's mate. Girl is so turned off that she would rather drive home drunk then spend more time with DoR.

    - DoR thinks girl actually listened to what he had to say and gets his hopes up.

    - Girl gets Buyers Remorse the next morning and tells him its off. DoR tries to fix things and eventually she tells him that she has a boyfriend to try and get him to stop. DoR and everyone else gets mad at girl for rejecting him, when its his own fault for not doing a good job of attracting the girl, seducing her, then closing with her.


    Now, are you and everyone else that is Another Frustrated Chump (this includes me) listening?

    Then you should read the book The Mystery Method by Mystery. If you've seen the show The Pickup Artist on mTV or VH1, its the same guy from the show. If you haven't seen it, he instructs men on how to meet, attract, seduce, and close with women through Social Dynamics and not through cheesy pickup lines or blatant physical seduction. Within the first 50 pages of the book, you will learn how all of us screwed up on women like "Jen." And then you will learn how to successfully get in that relationship with Jen, and maybe improve your social skills.

    I could go on all night about this, really, I could. But I'll just close this with one of my favorite videos of Mystery explaining how this all works:

    When someone says "keep that bullshit out of my thread" in H/A, and "that bullshit" refers to this PUA crap that--for some inexplicable reason--has become popular in the 21st century instead of the 1800s, where it belongs, you should keep that bullshit out of his thread. In fact, you should keep that bullshit out of every thread in H/A.
    Original Post:
    Would you guys please get that bullshit out of my thread? This is D&D type stuff. I'm not going to listen to anything that sounds like ladder theory or suggests that I should look at meeting women as a "game".

    In other words, there's enough crazy in this thread coming from me. There's no need for others to join the fun.


    the single most important aspect of dating is to be realistic.
    the reality is that human attraction is a game.
    yes, it's a GAME
    which doesn't mean that you have to "pretend" or "not be yourself"
    not sure where that came from
    rather, you must fulfill most expectations of a woman while denying a select few
    it's actually a science, but hearts rest easier calling it a game

    Your primary goal, as a guy in your 20s, should be to tap into the vast well of chauvinism , narcissism, and general baseless confidence that every guy can develop. some guys have it naturally. if you don't start out with this, however (like me), you can learn it by practicing it unashamedly with a critical eye to detail, and soon you will be able to apply it so smoothly you'll surprise yourself. this isn't to say it is the ONLY WAY it can be done. i would not say the only way to cross america is by car, train, or plane - but it would be a very long journey otherwise, you see?
    and what EVERY guy inevitably discovers is that being "an asshole", which is really just predicting people, is fun! the reason it appalls you is because you recognize its efficiency but you don't wield it (yes)....yet.

    remember when you were in high school or younger and your parents and other adults would tell you "you'll understand when you're older"? remember how, in your completely lucid thirteen year old mind you thought, "no way it's ever going to be like that for me - i'm different"? Finally, remember that first moment of adulthood where you realized the voice of experience had actually rang true? For me it was cigarettes. When I was younger, I was such a staunch anti-drug advocate (anti-everything, really) i swore I'd never smoke anything. i KNEW it. Then I became a chain smoker in college.

    there is ten pages of advice in this thread, and you're still using it as an avenue to take pity on yourself
    the collected wisdom of this forum
    the voice of experience is telling you
    you know what you need to do and you're not doing it
    so do it
    you need tough love and motivation
    not girls to give you value
    not clinical evaluations
    k?

    in closing i would ask that you apply whatever insight you have gained from the type of situations i described above, the "we've all been through it" experiences to your spot and expand your worldview

    even if i offended you, though, im pulling for you cause we really have all been through it

    Truthfully, I'm not happy with the item either, and for the same reasons. It seems a bit unnecessary to me, to include items that require nothing from you, provide you with an effect that does something very, very useful. Essentially, you gain, once per encounter, something it typically takes you multiple encounters without an Extended Rest to get... a free action point.

    Worse, it gives you an Action Point you can spend not only in the same encounter, but unless I've missed something the same TURN as your other normal AP that encounter. It being an Epic tier item is a consideration, but I still don't feel that a Wizard., for example, should be allowed to, on top of every OTHER item he can acquire, blow three daily powers in a single round. That's more than enough damage to seriously weaken the entire enemy contingent, and at Epic tier he gains access to feat that allows him to exclude his party members from the effects! This synergy, along with the "bonuses from APS" you can get from Warlords, PPs, etc, means that an extra AP spent in an encounter can be some pretty insane smackdown laid down.

    I admit I'm not precisely an expert on the numbers. I don't like overanalyzing my games. I don't like feeling like I have to. however, I look at this item and I think it's utterly ridiculous.

    And when I'm looking at an item and the first thought in my head is "that really shouldn't be allowed", and there aren't any arguements to the contrary other than "fuck you I want it", well, then, that's usually a good sign to me that my instincts were right.

    I don't think "you don't have to put it in your game" is the solution to every problem. Because some of us don't play freaking tabletop, and some of us have to deal with players who're allowed to use anything in any splatbook they can find, and some of us have to accept that our DMs aren't always in agreement with us on what should and shouldn't be allowed.

    Every step we take away from making 4e's math work internally, is a step we take towards making D&D 4.5 just as bad as 3.5 got to be. And hell, I've already got enough reasons to avoid 90% of all D&D games, I don't need more.

    Not that I advocate piracy, but if it's purely as a "test run", and you do end up buying the game, then this would be piracy advancing the cause of the producer, which is ironic and amazing if you ask me.

    Guess what: I'm 35 and have had no problem non-solo questing, solo questing and getting XP in general post 20. But then again, I'm not an inept social mongoloid who has trouble finding other people to play with because all I do is complain.

    It feels nothing like AoC.

    You're asking how to do things that are amoral, illegal, and also specifically and explicitly banned by the rules (aside from the rule banning talking about illegal stuff). I'm giving you a ban as well, to give you time to think about why this was a terrible idea.
    Original Post:
    So I was going to go to this big yearly party, but headed out a little early, so I got to the general area before anybody else (that I could see). While I was just heading down after poking around, looking for some indication of where the party was (it seems that the organizers themselves were a little late as I saw neither guiding glow sticks nor tent), a campus police car appeared and went into the woods where I'd just checked (the trail was big enough). Okay, I thought, he's not going to find anything and now I know I'm at the right place. So I head down and see a crowd approaching, more proof that I'd gotten it right. So I'm approaching the crowd to see if they knew where ground zero was, when first I notice that the car had turned around to go back onto what could be considered road, then, when I'm almost to the group, a second car showed up and went to join the first.
    I get to the group and the other groups right behind it and start heading back up, when yet a third car shows up and, as I soon learn, joined the other two in a little checkpoint to tell people to go away. The faster people get up there and, around the time the fourth car shows, reports back that they're making sure nobody goes past. So we go back down to the base of the hill and try to figure out what the plan is. On the way down a fifth car shows up, and while we try to get in contact with the guy in charge (I was with one of the lingering groups, others were trying to find alternate routs or parties) a sixth car and then an SUV joined the contingent.
    So we finally go to check with a small group we see up in a different area, to learn from them that not only did they have campus-cops on the roofs of nearby buildings, but there were also cops hiding in the woods, waiting to see a flashlight or hear steps (the ground was rocky and gravely, so that wasn't hard), at which point the guy would turn on a huge flashlight/hand-held spotlight on the people and tell them to not even bother. They'd set up a fucking blockade large enough to require every campus cop and the deployment of the national guard!

    We think that somebody snitched, as this was using the invite only facebook protocol.

    So now some other students and I are planning a way to retaliate: do the same party runup, but have it be fake. I'm thinking that we might even put in a fake snitch (public phone?) just to be sure. Our plans include putting out some sixpacks with pretty ribbons on them, putting some smoke bombs (which someone in the party crowd told me weren't hard to make after I joked that we should make up some smokebombs and rush the blockade), possibly set off via remote control from a place that can see the site by binoculars (how do they do it with IEDs?), some fireworks in the surrounding area (the other headperson is heading up to New Hampshire in the near future), and perhaps have a person waiting at each accessway for the last of the cars to arrive before putting out caltrops or spike strips across the roads to make sure that the cars can't leave once they figure out what's going on. We're also planning to have real floor parties anywhere we can find a permissive CA at the same time.

    Advice on what we can get away with, what we should do beyond what I've outlined and how to do what is outlined and what isn't, and general purpose tips would be greatly appreciated, as would info on any contacts you guys might have with MIT students interested in collaborating in a big Brandeis hack.

    I want this to be big.Not just added to the wikipedia page alongside the Malcolm X University occupation big, or talking about it for years big, but copycats on campuses nationwide or even internationally big. I want campus police to know that just because they've been assigned guns after VTech doesn't mean they can go on a power trip and shut down campus life.

    Original Post:
    If the campus police are doing something they should not, report them. However, that doesn't seem to be the case. Do not vandalize their property or use incendiary devices that may cause an escalated response. This entire idea of "getting back" at them for doing their job is stupid. They don't do this because they're petty asswipes on a power trip, even if that is what a lot of people think. They do this because it's their job and whether they like it or not they have to do it. Also, most campus cops are granted the same rights and regulations as REAL POLICE. It's not like a mall security guard. Your idea of rushing them is beyond idiotic, unless you like being hit, restrained and charged with Assault of A Police Officer amongst other potential charges.

    If you want to prank them and show that it's pointless to break up parties like this, then making up fake parties and publicly promoting them is the best way. Promote the same fake party as taking place at dozens and dozens of places. It will show them that they can't rely on that source of intel as valid anymore. Or y'know, you could have a party in an actual house or apartment and avoid this entirely stupid problem to begin with. Partying in an open/public place is just asking for trouble. Especially more so if it is a big party.

    Original Post:
    And if it's anything like mine, they may not be real cops (ours are "Public Safety Officers"), but they are authorized to give legally binding fines and detain people for arrest by the city police, and any charge they bring is as good as if it were brought by the city police as far as the prosecutor and court is concerned - effectively inside the campus boundaries, they are cops. They also might have greater authority in some situations, as they're also upholding campus regulations which may be more restrictive than the law (on a dry campus, they can seize alcohol from students over 21, for example, and there may be an implied consent clause to cover searches on campus).

    If it'll get you in trouble with the real cops, don't pull it with campus police. The chief of our campus police was also an ex-cop who'd lost his badge for how he handled suspects - just as authorized and with a history of overstepping his authority. You messed with him and the people he trained at your own peril.

    Setting up a fake party is one thing. Don't lay prank traps or make it obvious it was a trick, just let the campus cops be the only ones to show up at the party. Smoke bombs are incendiary, and even if you can hold one in your hand safely, some laws don't make a distinction between a match a lit stick of dynamite, around law enforcement officers doubly so. Caltrops to damage their vehicles is a very serious crime as well.

    If you want to embarrass them, have a small gathering (2-4 people at most, so as not to attract attention) and discreetly catch them wasting time on camera. Let them waste resources chasing false reports and maybe they'll stop listening to them so much.

    Don't be the one to narc the party, either. Making a false complaint is actionable in some states, and while it's unlikely action will be taken (with nobody to arrest and no party to crash, the complaint may not be actionable at all - laws vary a lot on this, you can try looking it up or just hope for the best), you're already talking about multiple charges, something little like this can be tacked on and the judge won't even notice.

    Embarrassing the campus cops is a good way to ensure they'll step up efforts to break up parties, not convince them to ease up. Going through with your plan as you write sounds like multiple serious crimes, including assaulting officers and damaging police vehicles. I'm pretty sure these are both felonies. Add this after an incident likely to have included underage drinking among other related violations, and you're just asking for a crackdown on just about any sort of fun.

    i dont consider having the same political view as someone else a vindication of their other ideals or even their reasons behind that view. other people can believe what ever they want.

    if i said i hate the democrats (which i dont) for standing shoulder to shoulder with criminals, illegal immigrants and scientologists i think you would find it a little irrational as well.

    stop judging the political philosophy based on the other ideals of the crazies who adopt it.

    The Republican party has been the party of intolerance since before I was born. I'm not optimistic it will suddenly make an about face and stop tolerating, fomenting, and capitalizing on the intolerant. So long as this remains so, I stand by what I said. Also, lack of progressive values and elevating the rich and powerful over the poor and powerless.

    you're going to run into intolerance/ignorance wherever you go... that doesn't mean you need to accept it but that also does not imply the republican party is full of a-holes either. as it stands i've been a registered repub since i could vote, since i identified with the core ideals the the party represented. that being said i've yet to vote for a republican presidential nominee...

    if you say you'll never be a part of this party as long as the current leadership keeps heading down the retarded path, well that's completely valid. other parties have the same issues to similiar degrees you know, it's not like the whole party is made of sheep that will vote how just because.

    a lot of people are capable of exercising good judgment, even republicans.

    There have been three two-term Republican Presidents in the last 45 years. Every one of them has been bad.

    Nixon was a traitor who built the Southern Strategy so that racist Southern whites would vote against the party of desegregation and Civil Rights (the Ds). He used the federal government to punish opponents and pervert the political process.

    Reagan was a traitor who was less overt in his racist campaigning but still gladly took advantage of it (after all he opposed the Voting Rights Act and much of the Civil Rights movement in the 60s). He aided and abetted the enemies of the United States in direct violation of US law and brought to prominence religious zealots that still fan the fires of intolerance from places of power today.

    And then there's W.

    That ignores Thurmond, Lott, Helms, Delay, North, Rove, Cheney, McCarthy and many others. They are the bad guys.

    Here's how I compare the parties:

    It’s like killing kittens. To me it doesn’t matter if someone has killed three kittens and another six kittens, they’re both killing kittens. If we’re talking about 3 kittens vs. 100 kittens, then the delta can matter more, but that is rarely the case. Think of it like this:

    0-1 kittens – Okay that one was probably a fluke. (Trustworthy)
    1-10 kittens – This person kills kittens! (Untrustworthy)
    11-50 kittens– This person kills a lot of kittens (Liar)
    50+ kittens - I wouldn’t trust this person to hand me the ketchup, let alone stop killing kittens (Pathological Liar)

    Within each level, the deltas don’t matter much because they’re both in the same ballpark. But if two candidates are on different levels, then the delta can matter. Generally speaking, both parties, for me, are in the same range. At various times one is worse than the other, but in general they're close enough that I don't see a value in trying to make a distinction.

    Then you aren't paying enough attention. Charles Manson and you both do shitty things (did you call your mother yesterday? Think mean things about your boss/coworker?) so I guess you should be disliked just as much as Charles Manson.
    Spoiler:

    Brainwashing and murder = Not calling my mother?

    The way you put it, yes. It's an inherently absurd statement, but attach it to a rider like "they are equal because they do bad things" and it gains a whiff of legitimacy.

    Moral equivocation is an utterly toxic line of thought, and should be avoided whenever possible.

    I think you can use a modicum of common sense here.

    The Democratic Party isn't somehow "better" than the Republicans because Racism isn't on their checklist of shit they've done to fuck someone over.

    Mmmyeah, they are. The Democrats have the moral upper ground at the moment because, by and large, they don't deliberately pander to the absolute worst urges of their base, whereas that strategy is being writ large in the Republican party at the moment.

    You can argue that they're both tainted by bureaucracy and corruption and that's due to the whole poisoned system of Washington politics (and possibly take that one step further into third-party or DOWN WITH THE MAN hokum like some do, though you specifically aren't), but even in a situation like that, differences are still present. The Democratic platforms are mostly genuine reforms at the moment, while those of the Republicans are momentary panaceas designed to sate yet another short-sighed instinctual rationale (like the relentless "free market" economic policies) of their base.

    Bullshit. The Democratic party has been on the right side of the issues for at least a quarter of a century. The Democratic party has not used anything analogous to the southern strategy that catapulted Nixon to power and continues to bolster Republican candidates today.

    One side is better than the other. And I view tirades like this as an excuse to do nothing. Are you even voting?

    I'm genuinely curious about this. You don't think the current Republican party has expressed an interest in defining, limiting, or continuing to limit certain aspects of gay peoples' lives? Bear in mind that the Religious Right isn't some fringe group, some barnacle merely clinging to the GOP - it's a major, major arm of its supporters and its leadership.

    Dude, no. You are not the center of the universe. We all have our own lives to live. Society is not constructed to serve your personal needs. Get the fuck over yourself you egomaniacal, mysogonist dipshit.

    You know why women won't date you? They have the good sense to not get involved with you and risk spawning more gutter fucks like you.

    Advice: Get some perspective, get some hobbies, grow the fuck up, and please, please stay away from dating. We really can't risk you breeding.

    This may be a bit over the top, but seriously, this guy needs a reality check

    Saying "go fuck yourself" isn't appropriate in H/A, and if you'd been lurking here as long as you say you have been, you'd know that.
    Original Post:
    I've never posted in response to a H/A thread before in the three or so years I've been lurking here, but I just wanted to put my two cents out there in this case. I've been where OP is and I've since moved past it - Eventually you just run into somebody and all's well from there. I'm engaged to a great girl now, complete happenstance how we met, but she's my best friend and totally cool. There's really nothing more to say than when you're locked in a path like OP is now, you just ride it out till luck throws you a bone. You can't change thoughts like that yourself yourself.

    To Cat and Cliff, go fuck yourself. Issues like these are prettymuch directly tied to anxiety and inferiority issues with people in general, and it just hurts a lot more since it also overlaps onto another big portion of life in the case of romance. It dosen't make such a viewpoint right, but well, people aren't born with those kinds of beliefs - they are made. OP or anybody else like this aren't bad people, and you trivialize their problems when you say shit like that, along with really reminding me of why I went down that path in the first place.

    No no, fuck you. I'm in the situation that the OP is in, pretty much, and I don't come in here whining about how men are shithouse and only useful for opening jars and mowing the lawn. OP thinks he's owed affection because of how he is, or that he can somehow gain enough points to level-up to a relationship. This is not how life works. He should be thoroughly disgusted with his immaturity and his contempt for other people. I sure as hell am.

    And he can do his own fucking housework, too.

    Shut the fuck up, asshat. No-one gets to be a misogynist because they got rejected and feel like being a self absorbed whiny little bitch.

    Just because you ask him to PM you instead of actually posting the PUA bullshit you're trying to sell doesn't make it okay. Believe it or not, we're not completely retarded.

    You want to get better at getting women, then there are communities that will help you do that. I doubt you'll see any sort of help here, judging from the responses so far. Tons of guys find themselves in their 20s, with only ever having had a handful of girls, and they want more out of their sex lives. It's 100% normal and it's something that you have the power to change. If you follow the resources, you will have abundance with women. I can attest to it personally.

    I should mention that your misogyny is a common thing, but it is also something which you need to let go. Not because of some "women are special flowers" bullshit, but because hating women will TANK your interactions with the opposite sex. Learning to be good with women is a skill and like learning any skill it takes hard work, dedication, practice, and pain to get better; it isn't a cake walk. It isn't something where you just find that magic line that makes panties wet, but instead it's about transforming yourself into an attractive person that girls want to be with.

    Send me a PM and I will link you to resources to help start your journey, should you be interested.

    List fails for no mention of "A Christmas Story." No holiday is complete without a mention of "You'll shoot your eye out!"

    A Christmas Story is one of the worst movies ever. Ever.

    Welcome to the internet. Around here we like the use of grammar and punctuation, not to mention not writing in all caps.

    Maybe you should fix that before you get ridiculed off the forums and go cry in a corner.

    also it is a pretty good time right now to get someone to be economically dependent on you. if that happens you can basically tell her to do anything and she has to do it.

    it would be like having a personal employee who cant leave and you only have to pay for their living expenses
