Thanks to RPGFan, I bought a bunch of games and have a huge backlog that will never get cleared. But this site got me addicted to the SMT series, so I'll always be thankful.

I dated a CPA for several years. She still had to put up with asshole clients that: didn't cooperate, had bad files, and didn't like the news.

At least they make 4-5x the pay and get compensated for dealing with people like that.

I'm a Cowboys fan, so I'm still waiting for Tony Romo to retire and for Jerry Jones to step down.

My condolences...

I pay more attention to college football these days because I know Ohio State can actually compete lol.

I got sent home from work early today (and told not to come in until Monday) because I said "Fuck you" to a customer who asked me if I was deaf in a nasty tone. I have a really low tolerance towards customers who act like assholes, which is why my main job at the store doesn't involve me working with customers. But then management had the bright idea of scheduling me to work so early when there are a lot of customers.

In the end, I really can't wait until I get my master's degree in accounting and start working towards becoming a CPA because I really hate dealing with condescending customers.

Haha fantastic!

Question though. When you become a CPA what do you intend to do? You will deal with condescending assholes in every job where you interact with other humans. 

I don't know at the moment, but I'll probably start off in tax accounting.

I know I'll have to deal with those kind of people everywhere, but it's the difference in job titles that I think will make the difference. Right now, (assuming that I didn't lose my job), I'm just a lowly stocker at The Home Depot. Customers always look down on me and act like assholes. There are some nice customers, but the majority of the ones I have dealt with are assholes to me. On the contrary, it's kind of hard to look down on someone who has a profession such as accounting the way people do when you work (barely above) minimum wage in retail.

I'm excited for tomorrow. It's the last day I'm scheduled to work until 4 am. Now that the busy spring/summer season is coming to an end, no more 7pm to 4 am shifts and all of my shifts will be 8pm to 12 am or 9pm to 1 am. What makes me sad is that means school is right around the corner, so that means I need to study for the GMAT even more and start studying accounting again.

I don't understand people demanding Japanese voices in an American release. If you really want the Japanese voice overs....import the damn game!

So I've finally started getting in the habit of writing everyday, and started a blog to go along with that. I figured I'd share my first post here, since it was inspired by the Conception 2 thread on these very forums:

http://slashshout.wordpress.com/2014/07/18/the-best-defense

Please share your thoughts if you have any, not only on the writing itself but on the blog and formatting as well. (Oh, and don't take any offense to the critical bits, Never am I referring to anyone on these forums since I have nothing but respect for this community)

The teal background and white text doesn't mesh well, imo. Unless you plan on sprucing up the layout of the blog, I'd go with a more conservative color theme. I use a white background and black text for both of my sites.

Let's be clear: Mangahere doesn't translate anything.  Legit or otherwise.  All they do is host other people's translations.  On top of that they (as well as Mangafox and many similar sites) are for profit, making money off of ads.  And to be sure, 0% of that money goes to the original creators or even to the fan translators, it's all for the people running the website.

If that wasn't enough then also note that they frequently lower the image quality from what the original scanlators put out to reduce bandwidth costs (and maximize their profits), and they've even cut credit pages so you can't tell who actually did the translation.  Basically, they're total scum.  Believe me, I've actually done scanlation stuff before and everyone in that community absolutely hates Mangafox, Mangahere, and their ilk.

If you're going to go with scanlations (and of course I would always suggest legitimate sources when they're available) then batoto.net is a much better choice.  Or even better just go to the scanlators' sites directly.

Not to mention that mangafox and so on are malware havens. Even with good antivirus software, you're still playing Russian Roulette with your computer.

This is why I stopped reading scanlations. I was reading a manga on Mangafox back in 2012 and got a virus so bad that I had to take it in for a professional to get rid of the virus. Granted I didn't have Adblock back then, but I still don't trust those sites, so I have yet to ever go back to them.

I'm watching the NFL Draft, hoping the Cowboys don't draft Johnny Manziel.

I'm super hyped for Zestiria's battle system. I came around to Xillia's system about 15 hours in, but right after playing Graces F, it just didn't feel like a good battle system at the start.

Nothing wrong with that.  I'd like to think that anyone can enjoy My Balls.

Though My Balls might not be appropriate for young children...

And this should be the theme song for it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLZbd0EvCs8

@daggerstrike

That shit is why my family just uses Roku to watch Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Instant Video. Cable/satellite service providers suck whale dick.
