    I don't think anyone does, it just gives companies excuses to put out "deals" for overpriced candies, cards, and other so called "romantic" products and try to make people feel as if they need them. Then again, that seems to be the case with a lot of holidays in recent years.

    That holiday is busted. I no longer care for it.

    If I had known that, I at least would have sent you a mediocre Valentine's Day poem or something!

    I agree, and happy belated Valentine's Day!

    How have you been, lately? Have things gotten better?

    So it's been a while and I thought that maybe we should talk.

    Still pushing yourself, I see. Well, this time I won't offer any "advice" or anything of the sort, because that's not going to do anything, actually I want to say that what you're doing is incredible. Pokemon Fallout and Pokemon Trainer's Academy take an incredible amount of maintenance, and not to mention the untold amount of RPs that you partake in outside of PC; hell, I can think of a good many companies that would kill to have someone so dedicated...but is this your hobby or your job? That's not meant to be sarcastic or mean, it's serious. I'm not sure if your addicted or you feel so obligated that you can't keep away or...it's really none of my business. Truly and honestly, its not, but I fear that you won't be able to break free of roleplaying on your own. I know that you don't want to stop, but at least a month and ideally a year may do wonders.

    Still, I know that's not possible, you have far too much obligation to the large list of apprentices you took on and the commitments you have to all the RPs and RPers you interact with. So much obligation that it could fill up several small houses, and I understand that, but I truly wonder if you worry about Marin. Not Yellow or any other internet name, but Marin herself. Does she get the care she deserves? Is she emotionally and mentally okay? Does Marin have fun doing any of this? Does she get any sort of gratification out of it. These methods of trying to heal yourself will not succeed if you continue to RP as you do, and I am one hundred percent sure of that. I'm not trying to give you any advice, nor do I actually want you to respond, but I don't enjoy watching you destroy yourself, even if it is "none of my business", and I'm sure those close to you don't, either.

    Ah, that last Fallout post pretty much answered my question. Well are you, at the very least, getting exercise? You need to do at least that much or you'll start to deteriorate. Are you at least enjoying all of the roleplaying you do? Please tell me you don't solely do it out of obligation.

    How have you been, lately? Have you been getting more sleep, or are you still overworking yourself?

    I simply went on because there was always to be discussed; but really, I see no reason to continue with your frustration on high. It only has its cons to continue, no one's going to admit defeat, anyway, it'd just go on until someone throws their hands up and says "screw it, I'm outta here". What's more, emotions affect arguments, and I can already see where this will go (or has already gone) in light of that. Though, I do apologize for making you so mad; after all, I was the one that said I would come to your aid if you ever needed help, and this whole debacle really seems rather contradictory on my part, and even more that you have to keep coming back here despite the fact that I'm trying to dissuade you from visiting the temp so often.

    I will say this, though, I've been holding back quite a bit. Often I wonder if I should say one thing instead of the other because one thing is more aggressive than the other and it will make you dislike me more than you already do. I realize that this...pain that I feel, it isn't the pain of caring what others think or feeling their malice, it's the incredible frustration I hold inside rather than taking it out on the person I'm talking to. I repress it so that they will feel better about me, and often times my arguments come out weaker because I'm repressing my true thoughts filled with frustrations. I have listened to everything that you said, every last bit. I have listened to your arguments and counterarguments, and I have taken them into consideration. I'm listening well, and I make rebuttals completely based on the points that you feel are valid. It may seem like I'm being "stubborn" and "am not listening to what you're saying", but I am. I've analyzed your logic, I listened to your rebuttals, and I researched to make my arguments stronger to counter yours. I studied Physics, Pokemon, ballistics- all of it, but every single time you would completely refute it, even going as far as to say that I'm talking out of ignorance and stubbornness and that I didn't research any of it. You clearly don't respect me, that much is I can tell, but I can't simply sit here and be attacked for things that I know myself aren't true. I, however, respect you, at least so much that I wouldn't insult your intelligence by making ignorant statements, that would simply make me look like a bumbling idiot, and I would have to think rather low of you to completely and utterly waste your time like that (and mine). I did, though, let all of it go, and decided not to go on the attack, because I was genuinely interested in you, and I still am. I enjoy talking with you about the things we relate on (and don't), and just general life. I mean, even though this is the internet, we're still people. So go on, if you feel this calls for further discussion, go ahead, and if you want to completely stop talking to me, completely ignore me, that's fine as well...but I'm not going to fight back, these years of pent up frustration will indeed surface if I continue, and I certainly don't want to take that out on you. I'd rather you have the distaste you have for me now than the bitter scorn that would be born from further discussion.

    You blatantly don't know the first thing about ballistics. You don't listen. I am so irate right now. You have wasted so much of my time with this. You want to stop /now/? Too late. I'm so far gone, and y'know what? I don't want to hear from you. Is that something you understand? Do I need to make it more clear for you? Should I go out of my way to PROVE that I don't in fact want receive further communication from you?

    I disagree. It's not so much based on stubbornness as it is the facts. I based my argument entirely on correlations to the game and facts of actual physics. In other words, my argument is based entirely on my knowledge of the games and the universes, rather than conjecture. That doesn't make it fact, though, but rather, it makes for a feasible theory. It would be wrong to call that ignorance. In fact, my argument is based entirely on logic, but you quickly said that my physics didn't mean anything, despite the fact that I can give you actual formulas to support my theories, and thus, I brought the logic and differences between our universes into it, because logic wouldn't get to you, you just wouldn't accept Physics (which is VITAL if you want to at all talk about this from an objective point of view or present a strong subjective theory). You say that Extreme Speed is faster than a bullet. Now, how would one support that? It is, indeed, possible to, but I will get to that later on. The pokedex entrees indeed say that it is "blindingly fast", but so is a speeding bullet. In fact, I know that one must take mass, acceleration, velocity, air resistance, and distance to calculate the damage, as well as the size and its dimensions (both of which are especially important in the case of a bullet, as the small size is made incredibly lethal and/or effective due to its shape, a large bullet would most definitely be less effective than a regular one, as its "puny" size makes it more efficient for piercing). That's how fast a speeding bullet goes. Then we must also calculate how much damage a bullet (depending on the type) can take before it is destroyed, and thus, we can further estimate how effective it would be on the target (by calculating the thickness, resistance, and mass of the in/organic materials that the bullet must navigate through and the stopping power of those materials and what affect they would have on the speed and acceleration, and thus, the piercing potential). I said something similar to this in the thread, but you just flat out denied it, and you can't just do that as there is no way to take an objective stance without it. What you see in the games and mere descriptions will not help you to completely understand unless you can convert the effect of the attack to a physics equation. Science is key to understanding fact, you can't just refute it with what you see, especially not without irrefutable evidence. Pokemon may be simple, but the developers aren't stupid, and they don't make attacks the completely defeat every sense of surreal logic; they try to make sense in terms of the Pokemon rather than making things that destroy all logical thought. And I'm not saying you can't bring Physics into Pokemon, the beautiful thing about it is that you can! In the case of Extreme Speed, one would calculate the acceleration, mass, size, shape, speed, and acceleration due to gravity of the pokemon. In this case, it would be more subjective as one would have to consider what they feel that a "blinding" speed entails (as, in my opinion, that is the fastest adjective used to describe the speed of the pokemon), specifically, we don't actually know the speed and acceleration, thus we must estimate as to what the values could be in miles per hour (we can pick something else, but that is the closest thing we can do to relate it to that of a speeding bullet). But, even still, it is possible. It's not possible to get something that is exact, it would always be a theoretical speed (due to the lack of knowledge about the exact speed). That is to assume that the two universes have the same, or similar, laws of physics (though, from what is shown in the games, one can infer that they at least appear to be quite similar). However, if one is to take the stance that it, indeed, isn't, then they must either state that it is merely a supposition or I'm not just spouting nonsense and I'm not ignorant to the relevant subject matter, I am using what we do and don't know about our universes and making correlations and what I consider to be valid and supported theories. If you don't agree with me and still think I'm spouting nonsense, I have an insurmountable amount of Pokedex entries and research books to support my theories. And as I said, you obviously can't say anything, that is, again, basic knowledge. I agree with you there, it would show true ignorance for one to think otherwise. You can only say what is supported by the established canon or universe of the subject matter, including the various correlations and implications made in the games, and that is the basis for my theories as well as my opinion about roleplays, and that is the backbone of canon. I stated this in my last post (and probably before that as well), but my entire argument isn't about roleplay, very little of it is (specifically, in this post, "And as I said" down to after this parenthesis, in the previous post, simply the parts that directly reference it) this is more about respecting canon and subjectivity/objectivity than anything else.

    I honestly see no reason to completely forget what I just said for any reason, I have done quite a bit of research and I see no reason to completely give it up. If you find it so ridiculous, then counter me, or even better, post it in the "General Pokemon [Gaming] Discussion" forum, then we can have a much larger discussion with people of a variety of IQs and the like, it'd be fine with me. Or rather, we can end it here (though I do find this talk of Physics enjoyable), though I am considering posting about this there, anyway. I'm sorry if it makes you mad, and honestly that is not my intention, I have absolutely nothing against you, but it saddens me that all of what I have said is so blatantly and easily refuted and then I be called ignorant and stubborn on top of that.

    EDIT: Better yet, we may as well end it here. There's no sense in trying your temper any more than I already have, and this certainly isn't something I want on my mind 24/7 (seriously, this stuff is bad for my health).
