Everyone has to deal with it.

But it's not being infront of people I'm afraid of.

Not even fear, really.

I just cannot verbally communicate my thoughts in a clear comprehensable manner.

Most of my communication is done via social media if you couldn't tell already.

There isn't exactly an "edit comment" to reality. hnnghh

The ability to pause time would come in handy. Gives me time to think.

Ability to pause mid presentation would be awesome. No more awkward 5 seconds of silence that feels like minutes.
Most of the time I think I've prepared quite good, but when it's time to actually make the presentation my brain goes "lol jk I have no idea" even if I know the subject quite well. My thesis presentation, oh god never again..

No, but seriously, I have the same problem, except they're all game pitches rather than screenplays. I find it helps to just write out (if print is your best medium) a punchy, pithy explanation of it that you can recite anytime somebody asks you about it. Otherwise you end up going into excessive detail, rambling, forgetting what you've already said, and it gets awkward for everyone involved.

Nah, I mean you need to memorize the spiel anyway. Just compose it in a brief, succinct way that explains it best and plays up its strengths. If you explain it badly it's really easy to think "this is stupid, isn't it?" in my experience.

Edit- you can PM me a description of whatever it is you're doing if you want. If social media works best for you, who better to pitch it to than some random dude on the internet?

Anyway for a while I've been listening to this

So I think you're right in that analysis.

@Mayrice

just had a debate in class on Friday. lol. it was on whether or no Christopher Columbus Day should be celebrated. everyone in the class agreed that it shouldn't because you know............Indians.

https://encrypted-tbn1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSKji9nDyIck6Fr8yNYd5rUBIfGoh1yN HpZwWhLygV84tUL6SJD8w



so the teacher had to split the class. luckily I got the against side. I thought we had it in the bag when the other side came up wit really good and out of the box reasons.

I then realized that my all of my groups rebuttals had to do with dead Indians...............




https://encrypted-tbn1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQkhodzZN8sHjBWxKxeZTHgZjFUd8xBi 2XUX6AdpidmBW8UJIC6aA




so my advice is to make sure you aren't repeating phrases........... and don't bring up dead Indians............

a bit romantisized during the end, but I liked it.

too bad it require mass connections/budget. damn. I'd watch that movie.

bad bad bad bad bad

Is 18 the age to play each of the AC games in that region? Over here, it's 15-16 for each game. Although, even though no rating has been declared, I think Unity will be 18 due to beheadings and graphically enhanced violence.

Visitors of all ages are welcome to attend, however, under 16s need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. It's fine for one parent or guardian to accompany a group of under 16s. A child aged 10 or under may attend without a ticket when accompanied by a ticket paying adult. Please note, multiple children cannot attend with one adult!

EGX London will feature a number of 18+ rated games and developer sessions. Under 18s will not be permitted to play these games or attend these sessions even if they are accompanied by a parent.

Awkward moment when I'm not American.... haha

But yeah this is really really strange, AC1 was R13 but that was relatively low impact compared to the others, but every single other game was R16. Of all AC games to warrant an R18, this should have been it.

I just hope to God this isn't because the game has been censored...

EDIT
It turns out that Rogue is also R13...
AC4 was R16, so I wonder what the classification board was thinking

On December 16th, 1961 the world turned upside down and inside out, and I was born screaming at America. It was the tail end of the American Dream. Just before we lost our innocence irrevocably when the TV eye brought the horror of our lives into our homes for all to see. I was told when I grew up I could be anything I wanted a fireman, a policeman, a doctor, even president it seemed, and for the first time in the history of mankind something new called an astronaut. But like many kids growing up on a steady diet of westerns I always wanted to be the cowboy hero that lone voice in the wilderness fighting corruption and evil wherever I found it, and standing for freedom, truth, and justice. And in my heart of hearts I still track the remnants of that dream wherever I go in my never ending ride into the setting sun.

Unfortunately they don't offer the same things like in the US yet. But if, there will be good competition and other streaming services will have to keep up which again will bring more good shows to my tv. :p

I think I will start watching 'Orange is the new Black' soon, which seems to be a very good Netflix Original.

To Pretty Little Liars... yeah, if you were a boy, and you'd like girls... you'd like PLL. :p

I've seen Scream heaps of times, yet I don't remember that scene


I study this sort of thing at Uni and I think I can weigh in to that Sandyhook comment made, and maybe even enlighten some people (maybe :P)
Violent video games do not (at least 99%) make people kill, it is known.
But, games that have a reputation for being violent/mature games can have adverse personality defects on young children.
It's all about ego; a child's mind is very malleable and if you allow them to play mature games, they get this subconscious messages that they are now mature.
And I don't think I need to tell you what a child that thinks they're mature is like. (an appropriate time for imbedding a "kill me now" meme, but I fear it will just get taken down)
Precociousness, vanity, self-righteousness, all these traits can develop due to a belief of maturity, all of which can lead to anger issues when they realise they don't gel in well with society.

These are all ifs and buts, but it is far more likely to happen (and does happen) than someone actually killing people due to video games.

You could ask that final question in the 3rd Party Gaming Discussion thread.

When not playing AC I'm usually playing some game that's not part of a series I continually follow. I usually play something like GTA V, Skyrim, Watch Dogs one of my numerous Steam games. Not another second series, although some of them could turn into continually followed series like the 3 I mentioned.

If I hadn't got into MP recently I would have lost money because Freedom Cry was less than the season pass. I'm happy MP is gone because that means we'll get more SP DLC. And we have, we're getting a seemingly large DLC and ACC:C. Now, it's only 8 hours total but it's all SP and includes customization which doesn't factor into the hours. :D

@Mayrice You know like cells? The things that make you? I have to create a big 3D representation also known as "model" of one. I'm doing a cake so I get a good grade.

http://gardeningstudio.com/wp-content/uploads/animal-cell-model-diagram-753.jpg

http://www.medfriendly.com/images/cell.jpg

Anyway, you didn't tell me how I'd start to upload an image so I figured it out myself. I'm guessing the "cryptic site" was Wikimedia Commons. I had to use a different image because the first one had no author. That copyright stuff was pretty confusing. I see why you made those posts about the image and how you were frustrated.

I really want to upload the article. Do you have time for a quick look over? I don't know if I can wait until late next week. I think it's pretty good so I might just do it anyway.

There were a lot of poor pitches done by people who clearly didn't have full knowledge of their plot yet.

I have mine outlined and clearly defined up until the ending (which is arguably the most important part, lol)

Oh jeez 10,000 would be a nightmare, I can barely write 2,000 without complaining.
In high school, senior year, I had a friend and I was in all the hard and useful (hah, what a larf) classes and he was too, I'd be writing assignments that meet the word limit and be like 8 pages, he'd hand in assignments that are 80 pages long. The teachers would look at it, look at him, look back it at, then say "not reading that". So I guess shorter word limits are for the benefits of the teacher too.

When i don't hand in an assignment, i just get a 0 mark for that assignment.

I guess it depends on which Uni you go to and which tutors you have, like, i don't think i've ever been chased up for not handing something in, but some might. There have been times when the lecturers have decided to be lenient and push the deadline back a bit, or allow people to hand it in a bit late, like a day or two, usually when a lot of people are having trouble with it.

Yeah it's really not as scary as people make it out to be

In high school, my teachers would be like "hand this in before 5pm this day. I'm preparing you for uni, because if you hand it in even a minute late, you'll fail"
I was petrified haha
But yeah, it's fine, my Uni only implements a 10% mark penalty each day, it's very relaxing
