#7103373 Obesity

Posted by Spinny on 06 June 2018 - 07:41 PM

not to speak for him, but people cannot, and should not be babied on the government's dollar. that's essentially making taxpayers pay for the personal choices of others. as far as obesity goes, what business does the government have in mandating dietary regimens and restricting foods? those are personal choices, and no government in the world should want to, or have to, look after every person in their respective country to see if they've been eating like a good boy. it is not only time consuming, it wastes money that could be spent bettering the status of the country in other ways. the freedom to make your own choices comes with being an adult, and as sad as it is, some adults will inevitably find ways to screw up somehow. 

It is well within the interests of the government to make sure that the country is being "babied" to an extent and providing action against obesity rates. Health is a huge determining factor within the success of a country as shown by even a simple DTM model, if your country is healthy and it's inhabitants can live longer and work better hours, the GNI and tax toward the government increases. Whilst i understand that you might think that the government shouldn't be "babying" people, it really is in their best interest, especially given the fact that the UK pays money to people with health conditions and already babies people for making bad decisions in the first place.

This is why there is an increasing initiative within the media of the UK to stop the mass advertisation of junk food and unnecessary snacks, whilst the BBC article on Zoella and Archie felt as though it was reaching or grasping at straws, the crux of the matter stands; that is that people buy and want more junk food the more they are exposed to seeing it and tasting it due to how the food itself is designed to work. 

 

I mean, the government can't protect you from yourself and your own bad choices, especially when there isn't actually any bad/objectively bad at all times ever substance there.

Also it's really not that complicated, as countries get richer they are able to eat more difficult to find/make foods which are sometimes better, and you can't transfer that sort of economy because it takes decades to build up and goes away in a minute when mismanaged.

No but the government can put regulations in place that makes sure people are cared for in better ways. I have seen increasing amounts of scoliosis campaigning for children and such, which extends to obesity campaigns and things like that as well. Having increasingly tertiary and quaternary fields of employment discourages exercise and honestly some buildings dont even give the correct amounts of sunlight which is pretty horrifying for an office block. 

Back on subject. It has been suggested that the government puts regulations on where store owners and big franchises can put their sugary sweets so that people arent just tempted on the way to the till or checkout, buying more calories than necessary. Not that i think this will be too potent of a change; it's a difficult problem to solve but i dont believe that absolutely nothing can be done, even just added media attention and awareness campaigns would be a step in the right direction.

 

Also can i just say that you all treat this like "hurr durr these people are just making bad choices" when the reality is that alot of kids in the UK are raised on junk food and continue the lifestyle without knowing any better whatsoever due to the environment they're in, it's really disgusting to have you disregard this as some kind of "bad life choice" when some people are so far from getting the support they need in order to realize how to take care of themselves and be healthier for their own sake.
 

 

 

This is really ranty and probably not that good im sorry.

Heyo, i'll give some rough thoughts and feedback for the poem impacts me

 

I wouldn't say it's a typical love sonnet as it doesnt have the criteria of a Shakespearean sonnet but definitely has undertones of it within the poem. 

It's a linear poem that focuses on a feeling of longing or loss. The ambiguity of such a linear poem allows itself to imprint it's message within the hearts of a large audience.

It feels very emotional and not just due to the semantic field of the poem such as "tears" and the broken "pledge" but also with the irregular use of enjambment replicating a sense of incongruous thought which may be due to an overwhelming emotion that's being felt by the author of the poem.

Unsure if the 2 stanzas missing two fullstops are missing them on purpose or just by accident.

The lack of caesura or intricate thoughts that require breaking up make the poem feel very tense whilst the rhyme scheme weaves through the poem like a broken heartbeat (a distortion of the usual abab found in love sonnets) which suits the poem nicely as it's about despair much more than the fruitage of love itself. 

 

The poem, to me, seems quite unrefined and messy, but does bring with it an unsettling atmosphere due to it. Not really my thing but it's a simple and effective poem for conveying emotion. (poems like these dont always lend themselves to analysis from others due to simplicity but it's certainly not a bad thing, just dont feel as though you're unsuccessful if many dont feel as though they can feedback) 

 

:) nice to see someone taking an interest in poetry

 

(this feedback might be a croc of shite but eh, i just wanted to give you some feedback based on my current knowledge)

So sorry I haven't been on Discord.

You have your nerdy hobbies and you talk about real life and schoolwork sometimes but that's really all i've ever known of you.

It's been difficult to ever really bond with you or perform a substantial liking as i dont know much about you personally or at all really.

You're respectable in the sense that you do you and no one can get a tight grip on what exactly "you" is.

Spinny :blobblush:

I appreciate you very much as a person. It has been great to hold discussion with someone who has incredible knowledge, but at the same time an incredible desire toward improving or moulding new concepts and perceptions in order to attain ideals or truth.

I recently decided that the value that i give humans should be based on their striving towards creation of their ideals or finding their ideals (who they are) and i find you have an incredible passion toward discovering yourself and ideology itself. 

You also dont take yourself all too seriously, you have a likeable duplicity that many should be envious of.

Oh look, another memester that i barely know.

You're okay. For now.

Congrats on getting far in the popularity competition though, that's commendable ^^

A lethargic response that simply posits a gif of someone else's creation is honestly indicative of your entire political ideology.

I love you as a person and you're really sweet but your ideology and alacrity to white knight (in the past, less so now, i do acknowledge your stellar improvement in that regard) really did drive nails between us at a point.

I've learned though that difference in ideology really shouldnt separate us and that it's important to respect you as an individual as you really do strive to carry out what you believe in, giving strong (even if emotionally charged) responses at times that seem extremely well laid out and well prepared. Which is incredibly respectable. 

<3 Love you


sure I'll take a shot in the dark

Vitriolic yet quaint.

#7067267 Quiet Life

Posted by Spinny on 09 January 2018 - 08:19 PM

Current Ver

 

SO.

I have had such a mixed bag with this deck overall.

I have had straight losses to barrier statue decks/pachydyna decks where they have just stopped my removal and then stopped my Special Summons of artifacts.

I have stomped certain meta decks such as magicians and trickstars when going first (yet to face spyral but im certain it's a similar story with scythe), and putting up a great fight against them even going second and even winning in some cases.

I have also stomped HEROes who drolled me twice which was fun.

 

Tower has put in an incredible amount of work overall. Works great with demise as it takes up the field spell slot instead of a precious s/t zone. It puts knowledge back into deck and nets you a card. It's also a future knowledge target once on the field. 

The spellbook engine may look large but ideally you do actually want to open atleast 2 different spellbook names (with 2 names you can search tower and sack blue boy with knowledge).

 

scapegoat is scapegoat, a great wincon in some scenarios. 

Crystal wing is a genuine concern but again, going first stomps him out in so many ways and once he's on the field you can still out him with borrel if you bait his negate with something else.

 

Heavy storm duster is insane in the deck, helping against evenly matched too by destroying your set arts and cucking the opponent's day. For that reason ignition is at three, it both procs your set arts, or disrupts scales/spyral resort and puts more down for you to duster. 

 

Quiet life has also done it's job of just winning certain games when drawn correctly, narrowing down the opponents options and then leaving the rest to arts and solemns. The deck is built around quiet life as it special summons on the opponent's turn leaving you to happily ns blue boy on your turn (if you have it, if not feel free to borreload/xyz with arts, you can discard blue boy with knowledge anyway if it's not the optimal play).

 

Overall, whilst it isnt refined enough to break the meta, this HELL YEAH is a fun control deck.
