Happy anniversary... I think?

Most dangerous thing that happened to me, was when someone tried to drown me. At our local swimming pool you had these floation devices and I was playing with one of them. An older boy came up to me (I was about 6 or 7 at the time) and demanded I gave it to him. I told him to wait until I was done, because I had just gotten it a few minutes ago. He kept asking and I kept telling him to go away and ask again later. He got angry, dragged me from the toy and pushed me under. Next thing I knew, I was sitting on the side of the pool, completely out of breath.

When I looked around, my dad was there and some swimming pool employees came running. I think the boy was banned from the swimming pool for the rest of the summer.

IIRC Covenant of the Plume explains the reason why Lenneth was removed from her valkyrie position. So 10-20 years before the original Valkyrie Profile?

Well, there is this one horror movie in which a girl named Tamara uses the craft to get revenge, because some people from school killed her or something. It wasn't a very good movie.

This is a small town. I went to high school in a nearby city and the people who bullied me there were from my hometown. I guess they got bored on the way to school or something.

It was perfect for a bracelet, though it took me two tries to make it just right. The first apple was kinda fat.

Words only hurt if you let them hurt.  I was made fun of for years but I turned out just fine, mostly because I ignored the bullshit fully understanding that most of the bullies would end up with 8 kids in a trailer working a dead-end construction job with no future.

I somewhat agree. The words aren't so bad, but the frustration that comes from knowing there is no way to stop it hurts so much.

I remember the last time it happened to me... A bunch of teenage boys saw me on my bikeride home from school and thought I would be a good target. I looked like someone their age and at that age cycling on your own is unusual. They started harassing me. The names they called me were mostly retarded ("fucking Turk", "whore" etc because a blond haired, blue eyed girl in her winter coat obviously looks like a Turkish prostitute), but it went on for 45 minutes. If there were only two of them I could have pushed one in a ditch or something, but I can't take on five people. I ignored them the whole time, not showing any emotion. By the time I got home I was very angry and upset and my parents got angry at me for being angry and not being allowed to have an emotional outlet after that just sucks.

If life is so fair, then why do roses have thorns? :(

Victims become victims, because they appear to be the weakest link and bullying someone who has a secure position within a group is social suicide. A bully in one group may be the victim in another. It probably has more to do with luck than with looks and social skills.

A hilarious loser. Visit his forums, it's like a going to Baron Cohen a movie without having to see the nudity.

Example.

I first adopted the username Tedius Zanarukando on September 1, 2002, at Empyron.com. The username was inspired by Square Enix's Final Fantasy X. The full username is Eunes Decimus Tedius Regio Zanaruqandior. The name "Tedius" is derived from the name of Tidus, the protagonist of Final Fantasy X. It is also confused with the word tedious. That would imply that no one is romantically interested in me, that I have a unique and controversial opinion, or that I have had a bad reputation on some boards. "Zanarukando" meant that my favorite video game has been Final Fantasy X and is the kana spelling of "Zanarkand", implying that I would live in Zanarkand Ruins if I were in the Final Fantasy world. The kana spelling was chosen, because Japan has done a whole lot of great things for me, and many of my school supplies were made in Japan, and that I have somewhat been influenced by Japanese culture.

That's the old explanation. The new is one insane. I'll try to find the exact words.

This will do:

Quote
The screen name Tedius Zanarukando is his universal screen name, with variations such as Ted Zanarukando, Teddy Zanarukando, Braska Spira, and King Mananan. His full screen name is Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando. At TheFinalFantasy.com, he is called Braska Spira. The name of Tedius in the user name means one who does not believe in romantic love. He always gets turned down when it comes to develop a romantic relationship. The name of Zanarukando means a video game player who has given up religious faith or heritage for video games. This may be more commonly known as an apostate gamer. Its origin pertains to his favorite video game series, Final Fantasy. Tedius is a variant of Tidus, the name of the main character of Final Fantasy X. Zanarukando is Japanese for Zanarkand, a Final Fantasy X location.


Of course he can't get a girl, he thinks every girl who wears her hair short or prefers pants over skirts should be sterilized. I quote:


Quote
A woman wearing her hair short or wearing pants is a dishonor to that woman. You must change, or else I will have you sterilized.

I saw him at SerenesForest.net a while back, but I doubt he's still an active member there. After all, Tedius is Tedius.

Cosapi is fairly normal compared to some other infamous (ex)RPGfan members. Google Tedius Zanarukando if you want to know more...

... you seriously believe that? It may remove some of the rough edges of character models, but it won't add any details or anything. If you believe you can turn this into something of this quality, you need to get your eyes checked.

Alright, I'm done with Tales of the Abyss. I did almost every sidequest, had L150 characters etc. And, that game was starting to affect my dreams. Anise trying to become rich by drawing and selling yaoi doujinshi (guess were she got the inspiration from...)... Or that dream about Jade that resembled an episode of House. Jade lost his parking spot, so he walked around in his bathrobe until he got it back.

To regain some control over my dreams, hilarious as they may be, I started playing Suikoden Tierkries. I've only played for two hours, but I like it. It's a bit different and I miss upgrading weapons the usual way, but the alternate worlds idea is interesting.

FFVI had the FFX demo? I didn't know that.

Yep.
