Post your bewilderment:

16 year old girl's skydiving accident

Wethington's father says his daughter should not have been allowed by the Oklahoma skydiving company to perform the jump, even though Makenzie's parents signed off on letting her do it.


What? Is it because the company may have not ensured she was properly trained? Or is it because the father was expecting the company to parent his daughter?

My Frustration = getting over a cold and the absolute worst bit, not a runny nose, not aches and pains, not lack of energy, the worst bit is the sodding two days I get to spend trying to equalise the pressure in my ears... and then when they finally pop and get right, sniffing and cocking it all up again!

First off: wow that must have hurt, although I suppose it wasn't 3000 feet of full free fall as her chute was out but not open so at least it would have slowed her a bit.
Secondly: I can't possibly imagine how absolutely terrible it must have been for her dad (who jumped first) to watch the whole thing happen and be powerless to do anything about it. So in that case I think I can forgive a bonehead blame-shifty quote or two.

Oh, I absolutely can empathize with Dad. I'm just not following the logic of that statement, but it makes sense, I suppose. "If it's the company's fault, then it won't be mine that my little girl is there."

Swapping back to holy prism until they fix it <.<


So actually, this just got even weirder (and frustrating, heyo) after I got into a talk on the WoW forums

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsAAnxuziUU
Notice no threat generated, the mob isn't pulled off. When Judgment happens, Judgment generates threat, but no threat from the LH exists at all (it's not even delayed threat, because the Judgment + Xuen procs are the only ones generating threat, and the numbers back that up)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9AsPbrpfyE
At 00:30, the LH is on a mob that's already aggoed (the Crab) while the Priest has pulled an extra mob (the Sha). Threat generated on the Crab, the Crab turns. The extra mob doesn't get any threat on it and continues hitting the Priest.
Fast forward to 2:05, and once again LH fails to pull off a Priest's staff autoattack.

Apparently the way it's behaving is that if you have no other threat on the mob, LH will generate no threat (not even delayed threat, the threat simply doesn't exist), but if you have generated threat with other spells prior, LH threat will be redirected to you?

If anyone cares to try these out and see if I'm not crazy, or if I am, go right ahead

That does sound rather smart - meaning LH doesn't autopull random critters within "range", but does add threat on engaged mobs.

The problem lies on the fact that one of the major uses for LH is to pickup newly spawned groups of mobs :|

Oh, to add to that, if you're solo, or the only person on the mob's threat table, it'll pull to you just fine.

Basically it means LH is going to have wasted ticks if you're using it to generate threat on mobs that someone else has if you can't first HotR or something else to the mobs. It'll still pull random critters (why would that even be a concern? NERF SQUIRREL), pull random mobs if they walk in, break CC, etc.

Just quoting myself

For example, on Garrosh, I'd throw light's hammer to a side of adds spawn, and run to pick the other 3 with avenger shield. This would be no longer possible.

Do we need help for holding mobs we already got threat on? Hardly. Really, we don't. Might as well run ES at that point as it provides better DPS.

Not the same thing. By using LH on a mob that has been hit with, say, HotR, or one tick of Consecrate, and presumably a mob that you have "generated" threat on with EF qualifies, you're actually generating significant aoe threat. A mob that you have "threat" on isn't necessarily a mob is aggroed on you.

raid time, and we are resetting
first of all, we have 13 signups, so yay for that..and a lot of those signups are people just coming back and wanting to raid, and we do need a couple more people just in case, so we are trying to gear them up..so no problem with resetting

we sit 3 of our best geared dps so the new people can get in and get gear, i am tanking, and our other normal tank is on his rogue because guild leadership wanted an officer in the raid, and the other 2 sat

well about that time, my internet starts fucking up..
i cant stay on wow or vent for longer than 10 minutes at a time, and most times its 3-5

i volunteer to be sat, and ask our other tank to switch to his tank because of my internet
i have a feeling that even though i had talked to our GM/RL, everyone ELSE thought i was doing so because i was pissed off about the reset and wanted to be a little bitch and throw a fit cause we werent working on garrosh (was an earlier incident that wasnt handled the best..i have made amends for that though..i thought at least)

so hopefully now that my internet is working again, i dont have to rebuild bridges again.
this reset i was all for, we need the new blood, and we need to get them gear so they can help on garrosh and be on par with our other raiders..or at least closer.

I still hardly see just light's hammer AoE taking off a mob from another tank actively aoetanking. I doubt it has *ever* been a issue.

I need 724 haste rating with my flex Thok's trinket, or 485 haste rating if I get a N-WF Thok's trinket :/

I am also apparently too stupid to see that I can reforge a bit of mastery to expertise...

D'oh!

21250 haste, 2558 hit, 5173 expertise, with T16 4p and the tank cloak equipped.

Anyways, sprinkling a pinch of salt on the coffee grounds cuts the bitterness during the brewing.

Heretic.

'Nyway, quick Frustration - I was planning to replay DA 1 & 2 to prepare a save for the upcoming 3.
OF COURSE, the game got corrupted in the meanwhile, and the install is 2 hours long.

Tomorrow, maybe...
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Most of you know, I'm a one man online selling "thing" where I work. I run the site, the ebay account, the amazon account, any other accounts.
This is a story of how frustrating some of our clientele can be. I have tried to write phonetically to capture the man's tone.
Sometimes, departments forget to tell me when we are out of stock on things. It happens. You've seen the pictures> There is no POS system here. A POS system wouldn't work.

Well, a guy sees that we have wooden flare crates (military flares) on our site. He drives here (even though our site tells you all over the place to call for availability, that we are a surplus store, that inventory changes, blah blah blah blah.

He gets here, and wants some. We tell him we are currently sold out.

"BUT I SAW IT ON YUR WEBSAIT AT MY HOME"

Yes sir, I haven't had a chance to tell our internet sales that we are out of stock.

I DROVE AN HOUWUH TO GET HEAYUH, AN I WANT MAH FLARE CRATEZ

Sir, I'm sorry, we're out of stock.

BUT IT'S ON YUR WEBSAIT

Yes, and when I call him, they wont be on their anymore.

WELL, IMMA GO HOME AN OOORDER ME A CRATE!

Sir, he will just refund you.

NU UH. ITZ ON THAR, HEZ GOTSTA SHIP IT TO ME

Sir, we can't ship something we don't have.

WELL LET ME SPEEK TO THIS INTERNET PEOPLE

(I'm standing there waiting to deal with her about a special order for a customer. I walk over, introduce myself, put my hand out to shake his, and ask him what crate he was looking at. He tells me. I pull out my phone, load the site, and pull the crate up. I knew it was out of stock, and marked as such. I sold the last of the previous shipment, and marked it then.)

Sir, I have that crate marked as out of stock on the website. It has been marked as out of stock, and that we are taking reservations for the next shipment that comes in.

THAT IS NOT WUT IT SEZ ON MAH SCREEN.

Sir, It has said that, on the website (log in, check the edit history) since September of last year.

YALL JUS TRYNNA GET ME TO PAY MORE.

NO sir. I don't have any. I'm sorry.

At which point, he goes full on hillbilly spittle throwing screamer. My boss walks over. I explain what happens, and my boss says Sir, I heard you from 200 feet away, through an 18" cinder block wall. You need to calm down.

I JUZ WANTS MAH CRATE!

Sir, both the department head, and the online salesman has told you we are out. I don't know what else to tell you.

YOU CAN KISS MAH ASS.

And my boss, who is a "big" dude (6'5", 270) looks at this guy, and calmly says. "Sir, You have 10 seconds to start walking towards the door. If you don't, I'm going to help you leave."

IS THAT A THREAT?

No sir. That's not a threat. It's a invitation for you to leave my store. If you don't, I will help you leave.

WELL WHO THE FUCK DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?

See the name on the side of the building? That's my father. If you want, I can call him down here, but by the time he gets down here, he'll be a lot less nice than me. He doesn't like the cold weather.

At that point, the owner (his father) shows up. Apparently, I'm going to his house to take some pictures this afternoon (yaaaaaaaaaaaaay). He sees the commotion and walks over, in time to hear the asshole say

GITCHER DADDY ON THE PHONE THEN. I TELL HIM TO KISS MAH ASS TOO.

The owner, an army vet looks at him and says. 1 pause. 2. pause. 3.

WHAT U DOIN OLD MAN?

4. Giving you a chance to leave before this old man kicks your ass out of his building. 6.

WHAT HAPPENED TO FIVE?

7. i had to talk. 9..

OK OK OK OK I'M LEAVING

Moral of the story.

Don't piss off an army vet.
