#16380 What Do You Play Games On?

Posted by U K on 28 November 2010 - 01:32 PM in Computers and Gaming

Sorry for the double post, but to be honest, if I had tons of money, I'd go with the 360, just for the bigger online playerbase.

#15207 Scientists Discover Antimatter

Posted by U K on 26 November 2010 - 03:26 PM in Current Events and Topical discussion

It's quite interesting indeed. I recently started reading Demons & Angels and to be honest, if I had the time I wouldn't even put the book down and I'd read it in one go.

#15205 Do You Play?

Posted by U K on 26 November 2010 - 03:22 PM in Sports Forum

I love playing basketball, but I don't do it actively. But what I do actively is lift weights, I absolutely love it and since I want to become a personal trainer, it would be a dream come true if it did happen, cuz it's one of the best things that can happen to you: connecting your hobby with your work or even better, MAKING your hobby your work! :P

#15200 What Do You Play Games On?

Posted by U K on 26 November 2010 - 03:14 PM in Computers and Gaming

I use my laptop or my PC and if I had a choice, I'd get PS3 over 360, both have their cons and pros and for me PS3 would be better.

#15199 Minecraft

Posted by U K on 26 November 2010 - 03:13 PM in Computers and Gaming

Like a month ago I wanted to play it real bad, but wasn't intending on paying for it so I tried the free version, but I had an error pop up, googled for like 2-3 days searching for a possible fix, and nothing solved the problem. :(

#15198 Which Skin Are You Using?

Posted by U K on 26 November 2010 - 03:10 PM in General Chat

Had it on Blue, which was the default skin.
Now I found that IP.Board is the prettiest of them all imo so I'm using it now.

It's actually really interesting to see what people like and dream of, shows how different people can really be.

Using the chance to say it again: my aim is to become a personal trainer.

#15196 Bullying

Posted by U K on 26 November 2010 - 03:03 PM in Current Events and Topical discussion

Sorry but your wrong, I went to one of the best schools here in cheshire, the entire student body was made up of very intelligent people,and guess what? Yes i got bullied by a group of girls who were intelligent.

Bullies know what their doing, they know that calling me names, being racist towards my bf, then dragging my family into the mix would defintily hurt me. Dumb people dont know what their doing, so i really fail to see how you can call them that. They bully people due to their arrogance of not understanding someone or something. To this day i have no idea why they bullied me, but i know they know and for that reason they cant be "retards"

I mean they're retards (so called and not in its literal meaning of course) for bullying, cuz it's a stupid thing to do and I'm sure you agree.

#15026 Bullying

Posted by U K on 25 November 2010 - 10:50 PM in Current Events and Topical discussion

I absolutely disagree, but I understand it is your opinion so I respect that.

I have to ask you this though... have you ever been bullied yourself? If not then you can never know how it feels and I feel calling those who are bullied a weak person is very unfair.

Everybody is different and everybody deals with things in a different way. Not everybody can stand up for themselves, that doesn't mean they are a weak person though, you could even argue that it takes a lot of strength and courage to keep going back to school or wherever every day, knowing what might happen. For me it started when I was 6-7, how do you expect a young kid to stand up to a group of bullies? I was shy, lacked confidence and felt all alone, it had nothing to do with being a weak person.

I know two of those who bullied me when I was at school, they failed most of their exams, one has never even had a job, one is in prison... Yet, I got decent grades, a good job, a lot of good freinds and I am enjoying life. I can stand up for myself these days, but then I never have any problems either, so you tell me, in my case who really won in the end in "survival of the strongest?".

In my opinion it is the bullies themselves who are weak and insecure, having been on the recieving end I find it hard to sympathise, but for whatever reason they became bullies, they also need help as well as I do believe that people can change. It is the victims of bullies that I feel for though.

I respect everyone else's opinions too, but I like how you stated it and others were like "omg what you're saying is wrong". :P

Yeah, your point is very correct and I have absolutely no objections. Although I have to say that no, I don't consider a 6-7 year old getting bullied a weak person or personality, but the older you get, the more you have to stand up for yourself and I didn't realize bullying happens at THAT low of an age. I was sure that it doesn't start that early. Thats the thing I didn't consider when I was writing my opinion.

And as to the quite lame expression 'survival of the strongest', this only lasts for the time you're being bullied. In the end, of course you're the nicer and more tolerant person than the bullies AND you have a greater chance of succeeding in life. Not in all cases, but at least in your case.

//EDIT: Oh, and some have tried to bully me at a younger age, but have failed quite miserably. And there have been very few because I'm studying at basically the best school (or 2nd best. And 'best' in many terms) in town and the rate of retards (bullies) is veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery low, due to the difficulty of being able to start studies at the school. Bullies, who are usually retards, simply fail here and drop out.

hahahah, no. Kidding aside I think you didn't read the other replies. Because a lot of the bullied people are stronger than before. ;) And I believe it's pretty hard to stand up for your self if a lot of people bully you. And if you fight back an entire group and their friends get after you. But I agree, you need a lot of self confidence.

I did read the other replies. You've got to keep fighting back, that's the thing. At least I wouldn't back down to no one.

weak? your having a laugh right?

It takes a strong person to put up with the amount some of us have had to over the years.

I personally dislike ignorant people but you know....

Sure it does, but if you were strong enough, you'd fight back and stand up for yourself.

NOT trying to be offensive!

#14212 Bullying

Posted by U K on 24 November 2010 - 10:32 PM in Current Events and Topical discussion

I have no other opinion than this: if you get bullied, you're a weak person, even though the bully is a retard. "Survival of the strongest" is pretty much the case, you've got to show your position amongst others well.

I dislike bullies and the ones getting bullied, the latter not always but most of the time I'm not too fond of people who cant stand up for themselves.
