Look at me, I'm using trope logic like a sheeperson!

This is all I'm seeing in your post, never use something as silly as "plot" when it comes to FMs. Powers are powers, fighting is fighting; bio armor isn't getting cut.

Since no acidic attacks have been used on any bio armor, let alone BT's, it is hard to determine.

Curious because in Guyver: The Bio-boosted Armor, a special enzyme can be used to dissolve the bio armor

Lolwut? That's the foundation of the entire premise, dude; if you go solely by attack stats (which are on the back of the damn toys) that stupid dino's capabilities plummet dramatically (and more importantly, non-zoids don't have the same attack stats which makes unbiased comparison impossible).

And BTW, resorting to sheeple arguments when someone doesn't agree with you is a great way to piss people off. It's easy to see why you were banned at TK if this is your default response to disagreement.

Powers are powers, fighting is fighting; bio armor isn't getting cut.


Bullshit. Like I said, it gets cut if the plot says it does. You can hem and haw about it all you like, but at the end of the day plot (and its architect, the author) rule all. Hell, this is why Bio-Tyranno has the power it does in the anime anyway; if you look at the stats on the toys it's much less impressive. But the anime folks have a hardon for T-rexes, and fanboys go ga-ga over them, so whatever. That's just the way things go.

You really don't grasp the concept of fantasy matches, do you? Plot has no barring is such field.

Plot has nothing to do with fighting capabilities.

At least they had enough intelligence to realize just how meaningless plot is in FMs, you are the only person I have ever had this debate with or even took such stance. Only a sheeperson would do such thing.

It does not, you are a very silly man if you think that.

You know, I didn't quite buy into the sheeperson argument the first couple hundred times you've futilely argued with it, but now that I've completely lost count, it's slowly winning me over as a very valid debate tactic.
"Now, from Nature we obtain abundant information about ourselves, and precious little about others. About the woman you clasp in your arms, can you say with certainty that she does not feign pleasure? About the woman you mistreat, are you quite sure that from abuse she does not derive some obscure and lascivious satisfaction? Let us confine ourselves to simple evidence: through thoughtfulness, gentleness, concern for the feelings of others we saddle our own pleasure with restrictions, and make this sacrifice to obtain a doubtful result." -The Divine Marquis

I have a... Particular, school situation, basically i can't attend school, like, i can't physically go to the damned place, i just get sick and get about to damn cry whenever i so much as set foot inside it. So, somehow, i ended up in a particular situation mainly crafted by one of the teachers from "my" school, who are trying to help me (Ahaha, how fucked up is that eh? :lol:) And now, among many other things i have to do (But this one is the one that's fucking me up the most emotionally, at least for the moment) Is that i have to call one of my classmates tomorrow and ask her for some copies of her notebooks. I feel this is a good moment to mention/remind that i have a deep fear of talking with people, social anxiety, i think i'm akward as hell and that i make people uncomfortable, ocassionally i'm a emotional mess (Part of why i don't like talking with strangers, since i have to pretend i'm normal/ok when i feel like crying, which can happen suddenly) And i also have an almost pathological fear of women (That last one seems to have been decreasing over the years, but it's still quite strong) I... Actually had to do this since a few weeks ago, but i just. Don't. Dare. I really really don't look forward to that, i really don't want to do this :sniffle: Fuck. Dammit.

So... I guess that's kind of on-topic too. Sorry.

Having to call a classmate and ask for notes is actually a perfect opportunity for you. I used to be the shyest person around until I had an assignment for newspaper class that involved calling the parents of one of my classmates to interview them for a "practice article" that all of the students were taking part in. That particular situation could really be considered the first real stepping stone for me coming out of my shell.

Seriously, as cliché of advice as this is, you really just have to force yourself into it. Once it's done, you'll not only feel a lot better, and will probably be surprised that it wasn't actually really that hard.

No need to apologise, Dream. Posting your problems is what this thread's for after all.

Wish I could offer you more, but an internet hug's all I got. :huggles: Hope it helps, even if only a little. . .

Exactly Dream. Perhaps you can use this situation to your advantage as an opportunity to grow and learn.

Instead of thinking of what you can lose from these social situations, try instead to think of what you can GAIN socially from them. Instead of thinking about the negatives all the time, try and think of the positives. :) It's not as hard as people think to ask for help or to approach others. You can get through this Dream.

Hang in there. :thumbsup:

Actually, and even tough it might not sound like it, the opportunity thing is the first i though when i knew i had to eventually call her, i think in my case, i pretty much hated (almost) all of the situations i had to come out of my shell (My comfortable life/my home or comfort zone/ etc.) I guess i will feel better and find out it wasn't really that hard (It has happened in the past i think) But... Still, i think i would be uncertain/wouldn't know if that would be something i'd want to ever go through again if i had a choice in the matter. And also, i really don't know how to deal with her... Ugh, dammit.

And the hug is actually a gigantic help, CoL, so thank you very much ^_^.

Hmm, i think lately i've been making some progress in those areas (A few things i haven't written and likely never will) and in any case i can't really avoid doing this (Well, i can, but things would be horrible if i didn't) Anyway, thanks for the "Hang in there" It's quite inspiring.

I still feel frightened and like i want to cry a little tough, but that is a bit unavoidable. I only wish... I didn't have/need to do this. I hate this kind of pain.

I know that this kind of pain you're going through is hard Dream, put it eventually will pass, and you will be stronger when you've overcome it. :)

@Dream
The art of being grown up, the dirty little secret nobody lets on about, is that it's all about getting comfortable with acting the part, and reaching that point where you stop giving a fuck, and do stuff that needs to be done, because it just needs doing, and ain't nobody else going to do it for you. If you have to take the first steps by going fully dissociated, that still works.

Just remember -- everyone else is equally much hiding their own insecurities. You are not the odd one out like that.
