>tfw dad destroyed my GameCube with a bat when I was a kid
>haven't had a console since then because I'm still subconsciously afraid of him
Is it a good time to get over this fear? What console would you recommend me for 2016?
He destroyed your gamecube? Poor you.
My stepdad smashed my fucking laptop.
Sad to read that, op.
But How your dad managed to break a Gamecube with a simple bat? I mean everyone Knows that thing is built to survive like a World war and get completely functional.
Get a Gamecube back, enjoy playing it and tell your dad that is a fucking gargantuan faggot.
>subconsciously afraid of him
How does that work? Do you have a subfolder in your afraid folder that automatically opens when you talk back at your father?
Actually yes, that's how subconscious fears work basically. But not just when you talk to them, but when you talk about them, think about them, or do anything related to the subject that you fear.
>"I played this game on my wife's son on XBONE"
I know he's bullshitting, but it seems to be a common theme of step parents being abusive as fuck. It's probably a primal feature to drive out the young of the previous mate and replace them with your own or something, like lions do I dunno.
Buy your controller to USB adapter of choice, install emulators and play all of the games anon.
You have a wonderful chance to enjoy all of the games you missed out on with fresh eyes, it's cheap, it'll help you get over your fear, most older titles are infinitely better than newer ones.
You don't believe me?
No, I moved off and told him to fuck himself. When I asked to pay for new one he ignored me kek.
Not OP, but my father use to beat me because I was slow in learning things. To this day when he is around, I stay silent and only say things like yes or no, and I tend to stay far from him. I am mostly afraid of how he will react to the things i do. Anyone else I can talk to fine.
No, all step dads are massive cucks and the real dads get fucked over too in that situation.
One thing I will NEVER understand about Western culture is divorce. Don't you people see how badly it fuck over the kids? How do you expect a kid to have a normal child hood when his mom is busy jumping on dicks? I grew up in America and it's disgusting how casualized divorce is. One good thing about being a paki fag as I am is that divorce is basically non existent and I'm so lucky to have grown up in a stable two parent house hold
Thanks mom and dad
Are you really going to let him push you around?
Beat the fuck out of him, steal his money.
Just do something.
Nah I was planning to clear his bank account but that would mostly damage my mother and siblings so fuck it.
We've had a fight that day he slammed my laptop but whole family torn us apart. He was drunk he could not punch for a shit.
Why would you even bother impersonating me?
P.S. I don't give a shit if you guys believe me or not. I fucking lived it.
And I wasn't clear enough when I asked the question: what 8th gen console has the best prospect this year?
Well at least in my case, my parents didn't separate (though never divorced) until I was 25, so at least some know to keep it together until the kids are gone.
But really it came because of various reasons. If a woman is married to a drunk who beats her, she deserves a chance at a better life. Likewise a man should not be expected to stay married to a woman that is adultrous.
Noone is impersonating you, I am speaking of myself.
I'd be afraid of someone too if they could destroy a fucking Gamecube.
Don't off yourself before you know what living independently is like. I spent some time in group homes, you would not believe the kind of people who can manage to live on their own after getting some help. Just by typing that coherent sentence I'm almost certain you're more competent than half of them. If you can read this bump that up to 95%.
Sure your point makes total sense. There are sometimes legitimate reasons for a divorce.
Unfortunately an overwhelming majority of divorce in the West occurs for selfish reasons such as the wife being bored of the marriage or lack of communication. Many of these problems can probably be solved with marriage counseling but American women are such massive cunts and it's so easy to get a divorce they don't try and sustain the marriage. Since America is such an individual centered society the women barely think about the kids in a divorce. A divorce should be a tool of last resort.
I work in my father's shop to help pay the bills as I'm in college and literally Every dude complains about his wife. There's definitely something unhealthy about that
Not the paki you were talking to but if people had even less kids than they already are having we're going to get fucked, really, really hard. We NEED new humans to sustain our society.
>Someone tries to high five me
>Instantly flinch back
>Have small disagreement during a conversation
>Eyes start tearing up
>People ask a personal question
>Instinctively lie in order to hide potential weaknesses
Flinching is such a natural reaction I don't know I'm doing it. All the time people ask why I jumped all of the sudden or tensed up, and I sit there dumbfounded wondering what they're talking about. Polite sega for blog
Paki fag here. On the surface this should sound true. One way to look at things is to ask ourselves why is it so easy for ANY adult to gain a marriage license. Marriage has its own sets of responsibility that most people people aren't prepared for. I mean hell, I don't know of many marriage prep classes.
But I look at contemporary history of the last 150 years and the American model of marriage has worked pretty well. I don't have a rigorous set of steps as to how I reached my conclusion but a high successful marriage rate (rate of couples remaining together) is one of the reasons America in the 20th century was so dominant and a great place to live. Those stable two parent house holds produced the best scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, writers, etc.. In the world for a long time.
I know I sound like a fedora owner, but your average American woman of today has had 10 dicks in her before her first marriage and a culture that accepts that and passes it off can't be healthy so maybe it's something more fundamental? I just don't know and am fortunate enough to probably not have to deal with this bull shit when I get married
This is true to a certain extent. I'm talking from the point of view of an American, but immigration to our country helps sustain population and as whole, the earth certainly doesn't need more people
Fundamental issue I think is that a lot of research shows that women aren't actually attracted physically to the majority of men, but in the past were forced to marry for other reasons, primarily economic security and social status. Now that women can work and are treated as equals they can hold off on marriage while they wait for Mr. Right, but there's not enough of those to go around.
So women will settle for somebody she's not attracted to once she's running out of time to have kids, and won't be happy in that relationship once those "make a fucking baby!" instincts wear off. Then you wind up with cheating, divorce, or just an unhappy marriage. There's a reason 70-80% of divorces are initiated by women with the reason being "dissatisfaction". And since we've got this free exchange and globalization of information men are becoming more aware of this dynamic and opting out of dating in response.
Or maybe I'm just pulling shit outta my ass but I think it's a reasonable conclusion when you notice that people are marrying later and divorcing more, but it's hard to be sure. All I know is if I don't find a woman that loves me by 27 or so I'm not getting married, I'm not falling for the "I've had 10 dicks but I want yours (because I really need to have kids soon)" shit.
This is so me, it's not fucking funny
>Co-worker says "Hey anon, can I take to you for a minute?" the other day
>reacted as if I was caught in the middle of murder and about to be interrogated by police
>all he wanted to do was thank for working hard
the usa was ascendant in the 20th century because we had easy access to cheap but educated labor and huge amounts of natural resources inside our continental landmass while the rest of the first world was having its population and industry devastated by two massive wars
>waiting for Mr. Right
That too is an American concoction. I can understand where your coming from when you don't want to fall into the trap of being just another dick that the woman is using. Unless you're an evangelical Christian or a Catholic, virtuous women are very hard to find in America. I wouldn't even know where to look. Got any places in mind lol?
I believe you are correct. Notice though I never said that the institution for marriage was the only factor for our success. It just put us in a better position to take advantage of our edge. Immigration is also another reason America had prospered for a long time
>my dad was a fucking idiot
>way back when I was like 8, he had an issue getting a bagel out of the toaster
>tried prying it out with a knife, but fucked it up somehow and half the bagel was stuck in the bottom of the toaster
>dad takes the toaster outside and throws it as hard as he can into the side of the house
> I love my toaster and I haven't spoken to my dad in more than 10 years, fuck that abusive retard
I come from an illustrious pedigree
i don't have any numbers in front of me but i would make the argument that the economic situation is what allowed the marriage situation to prosper, and not the other way around. we're talking about a situation where a single working parent has the income and job stability to comfortably support a nuclear family with basically an entry level job.
I really must have been in the minority. My stepfather was actually a cool bro that let me use his laptop to play Total Annihilation and made these really good frozen cookies.
My dad and him even actually talked to each other and were really respectful. Unfortunately I don't talk to my stepfather at all anymore since my mother died, but I do see him driving around from time to time and know he's doing just fine.
He probably still has my two old cats, though, which I wish I could see again.
How much do gamecube games go for these days? I've got a pretty premium collection in good condition.
Last I checked though the only thing of worth was path of radiance going for a hundred bucks
Cheapest price for melee I found on Amazon is 60 bucks and that game is over ten years old while I've bought a fully functioning game cube for 20 bucks with all the wires and two first party Controllers. What the fuck Nintendo, why do you produce such low numbers of discs for your systems. Bull shit ike this is what drove me to buy an xbone and trust me I'm suffering for that too.
Nintendo during the SNES Era were at their peak. Debate me on this faggots
Eh, not really worth my time to bother selling it then. I probably wouldn't get any higher than that because melee is in probably the roughest condition because I bought it
used from gamestopback in the day.
Maybe someday I'll bundle everything together and try to sell it for a few hundred bucks. I should probably be able to get that atleast, I mean I've even got shit like the masterquest disc and skies of arcadia.
>tfw shit ass
exfriend asked to borrow Skies of Arcadia and then sold it
