I think media in general should be forced to release a certain amount of “good” news.

Topic: Off-topic / Is it rude to...

So this one time I was being nice and sincere to that one guy who made a thread about stuff and such by giving him advice of some sort. But he didn’t thank me. It is common courtesy to thank people if they give you something for free. Was he being rude?

WARNING: Only whining about how bad the world treats me allowed or I will close the thread!!!!!1111

1) How is pretending to like something common courtesy and not lying? Keep going this way and you’ll get the fake friends you are longing for.

2) Women always say what they mean in the most direct way possible. Yeah… that sounds legit.

3) You are trying to put the blame for your failure on somebody else.

I did, and realized that its because she’s insecure… She doesn’t think im creepy because we are super close. They are complements that she may have heard before but she doesn’t believe me and thinks I’m lying. And I’m 100% honest with her.

Ok. Let’s assume for a second that what you say is true. Then you are expecting her to lie right into your face. Lying is rude.
And you put her in a situation where she has the choice of being rude (being dishonest) or being rude (breaking unwritten social norms). That doesn’t sound like a good foundation to ask your question.


Besides be very careful with the whole “she’s insecure” thing. While this might be true it is also the typical coward’s conclusion to a failure. They put the blame on somebody else and by doing so they don’t need to adjust their behavior.

Take the “she doesn’t believe me” part for example. There are at least two ways to argue here. You could say she is too stupid/ insecure/ whatever adjective fits to accept your compliment. Or you could say that your approach with the whole compliment wasn’t good (yet). And yes, both can be true at the same time. The difference is how you perceive the situation. And the second approach gives you way more room to change the situation.


Another thing is that what you might see as a compliment might not be considered a compliment by the other person. A classical example would be “You look good/ pretty”. While this might be accepted as a compliment depending on how close the people are it is still a rather bad one. Your physical appearance is mostly how you were born and not an accomplishment. That’s like complimenting somebody on the city he/ she was born in.

Specific details on the other hand are great ways to compliment people. An example would be “I like the way you wear your hair. Where did you come up with the idea for it.”. Depending on the situation this could still backfire horribly but it is more likely that somebody will accept such a compliment. After all they put some effort into this. And you give them also a way to say more than just an embarrassed “Thank you”.

At least that’s how I see the situation. You’re absolutely free to see things differently. After all your description is rather abstract.

Topic: Kongregate / Saving - a 2015 resolution

Online saves cost Kongregate money and don’t generate any direct income. The only thing that could make remotely sense (for Kong) would be to include online saves with the K+ package.

And I’m not even sure if it is even possible for Kong to make online saves possible no matter which game. I think the only thing they could do is offering an online save API and the devs would have to do the work. But that’s just me guessing.

Well none of them sucked for me. Not sure about Philadelphia though. Don’t think I’ve seen that one.

No one could have possible enjoyed the movie in the airport.

Well at least that would be the style of the Illuminati. Replacing people in strategic positions with their own puppets. Whatever, if the Illuminati are coming I demand Eliza Cassan for entertainment. If I can’t stop it I might as well enjoy it.

No i already layed the plan. It´s gonna happen. Thanks for the support tho.

Sorry bro. I’m sure your plan to get a gf with big tits (even if ugly) is a strategic masterpiece which will make look Hannibal and Napoleon like clueless noobs. Future generations will sing the songs of Dias the Conqueror of bitches. :D

Jk. Maybe you have an actual plan. But let’s be honest. Usually the “plans” made at the end of year aren’t worth the paper they are written on. I mean the very first thing you say with such a plan is that you actually don’t even want what you are aiming at. You need an external motivation to get started. Oh and btw, when I say you I don’t mean you (as in dias) but you (as in people who do things like that).

Most people with those wonderful plans don’t even think about when and how they will start. And even if they start they will quit after the first failure because they didn’t spend a single moment thinking about how to deal with situations that don’t go as expected.

To spare you a long boring text here are just some notes of what a plan consists of:

  • A measurable goal
  • Measurable steps that tell you how to reach your goal from the position you are currently in
  • Estimates of how long everything will take and when things should be done
  • Strategies how to deal with possible problems
  • A collection of tools/ strategies that will increase your odds of reaching your goal
  • The will to accept and learn from failures
  • The ability to reexamine and change your plan if necessary
  • Probably a shitload more things which I forgot about

It’s just sad to see people get all euphoric at the end of year only to see them fail within the first days of the new year and know they could actually make a difference if they just took a different approach.
