You've came to the right place. Unfortunately most are greater than that size but if you autofit to your screen, it will still look nice.

I never come to this board, but I really don't know who to ask for something like this.   
   
My girlfriend is an aspiring writer, and she seems to have some kind of thing for wanting them to go through all kinds of horrible, strenuous shit.  On top of that, she just recently reblogged a post on her Tumblr of certain characters bruised and bloodied.   
   
I knew from the start that she was a sadist (we often share our dominant/submissive fantasies with each other, with her always being the dominant one) and I know that she would never inflict pain on me unless I asked for it, but it still kind of concerns me.  How worried about her fetish for violence should I be and how should I approach her about it?

It might be that she does enjoy that deeper S&M stuff, but knows you might not, so she doesn't want to force it on you. Instead, she's using her characters as outlets. That's what it sounds like to me.

Okay guys I wrote a couple short stories for fun I was bored and it took me 10 minutes to do each one, looking for any advice or feed back on any of them will be replying to this with the stories.

I really wish I could read all this....The stories seems interesting. I liked the World War 2 one. It was really nice man, good job. I can't think of any improvement you can make. I'm not a writer.

You see, I keep trying to find books that will get me hooked to the story instantly, just like your stories did. But for some reason, I can't find any interest into any of the books these days. But I really like your stories, they are really nice.

All I have, taken. All I am, destroyed. All I stand for subjugated. I stand here not for the hatred of the enemy but for the love of my countrymen. My senses are filled from the scent of battle. The air is filled with a mixture of blood, burning flesh and steal, and powder. All around me is the noise of battle, the crack of a rifle and the moans of a soldier. My final symphony shall be played today. My death is not an option. The torrent of the enemy will be here soon. I stand with a rifle in my hand and my feet on the ground. May the enemy find his maker at the end of my rifle? May my rifle fire so much its barrel turn red and I am forced to use my bayonet. May my bayonet snap in the bowels of the enemy? May I be forced to use my rifle as a club and have it swing at the enemy as though it had a hatred of its own? May I use my fist and lunge at the enemy, where I can see the whites of his eyes and the fear in his heart? Aye, I shall and more. My friends it is not a matter of surviving today, but making the enemy wish he hadn’t. So my brothers of steel and iron, of death and destruction stand with me on this day. This day where lions are born and men are set free from this mortal world, for my friends remember our motto “fidelis usque ad mortem”, now let’s live up to that motto.

5 years since we lost. The air around me is filled with the must of a rotten city. The loose payment crackles under my feet. The gray titans that stand guard over this land, now but skeletons of their former self slowly collapse as the world around them had. I walk these streets like so many had in the past. All dead. I remember the days were the bustle of the city was… usual. Oh how I miss the chaos of the streets. Humanity lost its final war 5 years ago. It was a long and painful war. Humanity was beaten to its knees to an enemy that it could not touch or fight. A new type of bomb was tested 6 years ago by a government of Earth. A biological weapon on the scale of a hydrogen bomb. Designed to eat away at the lungs of all that inhaled it.
#111316 to #111315 - muffinsmuffins (01/12/2014) [-]
When tested it took a mere three hours to cover a continent. 4 days to cover the entirety of earth. 144 hours later half the population was infected. You see this bomb was not meant to kill instantly. That is too humane for humanity. No, what it did, what it does is much more touching you could say. It’s basically a bug, a virus. It eats, quite slowly. It started as a tickle in your throat, then a cough, till the point where you’re chocking up blood. Then you feel like your lungs are on fire and no amount of meds can stop the pain. Screaming through the night and all day and the best part is, it grows in pain without killing you for a month. You never get used to the pain that now fills your life. Half of the infected killed themselves as the only easy way out. The other half died within a month of their lungs being eaten. I managed to stay alive this long my scavenging gas masks and staying underground in the metros. My mask broke 2 weeks ago, I am two weeks infected. I stand on this roof now, for all I know I am the last of my kind. Brought to our knees by our own creation. What I am writing now is the final eulogy, not just for me but for humanity’s titans. May I leave you reader with one last thing? The final verse of the Hollow Men can sum up this very moment that I hurdle myself over this side of this cement building, that will serve as my cold, gray tombstone.

This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.
#111314 to #111313 - muffinsmuffins (01/12/2014) [-]
Today we are but ants in the apocalypse. We humans stand on the cuffs of this world. Beaten for centuries and left to burn out of existence. The final battle is taking place today. Light and dark will face off in the last battle to claim this rock as there’s. Humanity brushed off in this conflict has had little to commit. We are outnumbered and outmatched. But we will be dammed if we are to leave our fate to that of an external force. We humans have are stubborn, give a man a purpose and hatred and he can move a mountain or die trying. Today the last of our fleet will partake in this battle, not on the side of good or evil but on the side of humanity. Humanity in all its glory and darkness is the cruellest and most beautiful thing to ever to happen. We have committed atrocities to one another, the gods have lost their faith in us, but humanity has never lost faith in each other. For every man to light a fire or cause chaos and destruction a hundred more throw themselves to the sound of chaos, despite race or creed, not for the betterment of one but for the justice of all. That is what is happening today. 100 of humanities finest ships crewed by thousands of warriors of humanity will launch us into chaos to draw blood and strike at those who do humanity harm. For when the day ends we will stain the water with our blood and the air filled with powder. For in humanities greatest chaos gives birth to humanities bravest warriors and we will be the executioner of our own fate, or kill the basterds trying.

Sup /advice/. need your help with this one.

Oh, then yeah that's pretty normal. The person who was dumped usually feels lost and a yearning for a return to the way things were. When my girlfriend broke up with me I called her every day for an entire week just so I could talk to her and hear her voice again. It wasn't good for me, but I eventually snapped out of it.

i don't really care for her anymore. she's only brought me nothing but sadness and negative thoughts, so i moved on with my life alone. it was 2 weeks since we last spoke until earlier today, and i didn't feel the way i used to feel when she would message me. so it's gone. i'll be fine, i just wanted to understand what the hell it was all about. good looking out scotty ma boy.

It can't be bad all the time. Two months ago I felt nothing but utter devastation when my girlfriend left me and I was really tempted to kill myself. Over time though things got better. I made some new friends and I've started to like someone new.

Me and my mom are trying to teach my spoiled sister the importance of money, but she won't listen to us.

My sister has autism, but its not halfway severe; Maybe 1/4 of autism in her brain.

My sister does get monthly checks for her disabilities. $400 of it. Yet she won't stop asking our mom to buy stuff for her, and it can range to the $100s. My sister won't even get a job.

We are trying to teach my sister the importance of money, but all we got is the :Hank Hill method" where we put $7 on a table, and take away $1 for each bill to pay, but she won't listen.

I need help with teaching my sister the importance of money, but not in a violent way.



Help me, FJ
User avatar #111329 to #111267 - ihatecarltonbanks (01/12/2014) [-]
if she wont listen then the only thing to do is let her find out on her own. dont pay for anything for her for a month and dont give in when she throws temper tantrums. she will learn then. yeah its not the nicest thing but if theres one thing ive learned from being a part time teacher its that the nice way doesnt always get things done and sometimes you have to just lay it down.
User avatar #111331 to #111329 - darealsnooki (01/12/2014) [-]
We'll try that method too.

A teacher, eh?

haha yeah im still currently in school but i do a lot of hands on teaching and have subbed for quite a while. as much as i would love to be buddy buddy you just have to be hard on them sometimes to get the message across.

i enjoy teaching. its just what i love doing. i love helping kids become what they want to be in life. i love giving them the tools they need to succeed and become successful people. my goal in life isnt my career choice. but i love doing it. ive just always been great with kids and they always seem to like me. even as s kid in middleschool i always knew i was good with younger kids. i teach mostly elementary. 3-6 grade. i cant say i loved school growing up but its not like im just going to school my whole life. its become my career. IMO theres no job more rewarding than teaching in elementary ages. plus me being male and being able to get a job at pretty much any school i want because of that sure helps lol

How old is she?
User avatar #111296 to #111294 - darealsnooki (01/12/2014) [-]
18, but her autism makes her act 6-8
User avatar #111374 to #111296 - lotengo (01/12/2014) [-]
That doesnt sound like mild autism to me.

I have autism myself and i have to say i'm very visually oriented. If u ad 400$ to my bank account its hard for me to grasp that concept because i cant see the money.

Maybe it helps if u show her the 400$ cash, take away x ammount for rent and food and say the rest of the money is all she has left for stuff like clothes and hungergames crap.
User avatar #111297 to #111296 - christmouth (01/12/2014) [-]
I can only thing of having her somewhat participate in how spend your money on your livelihood, like food and things like that, this could make her more concious on how she spends her money.
User avatar #111299 to #111297 - darealsnooki (01/12/2014) [-]
We only buy stuff we need, as in food. We're trying to save money for moving
User avatar #111300 to #111299 - christmouth (01/12/2014) [-]
Kind of a though one. If she got some house chores, or some kind of thing which she's responsible for, then you could maybe give her some incentives to be more concious of what she does with her money. That's just what I'm thinking, I don't know you'll how deal with just that. It's kinda though starting something like this, when you're planning on moving.
User avatar #111301 to #111300 - darealsnooki (01/12/2014) [-]
Me and my mom tried telling her the importance of money, but she won't keep that thought for more than a day
User avatar #111307 to #111301 - christmouth (01/12/2014) [-]
Yeah, I'd guess that that would happen. Have you tried googling it? That's probably the best choice of action, because there's undoubtedly people who have been or are in the same situation as your family.Try looking for facebook groups, and lurk through them, there's no harm in that.

I can direct you to this, but I don't think it would much of help to you, as it's more based for children.

I recently moved out from my parents house because I felt depressed when I lived there and a doctor/psychologist suggested that I should get an apartment of my own.
The reason of my depression is a long story that I just can't write down (I have tried)
I love this new home of mine and I get a lot of visits by friends and we have a great time together.
Still I have started to feel sad when thinking about my "real" home and how my parents have it. I think they miss me because I was their last child and now they are alone.
And I also miss them very very much even if they played a part in my depression.
I guess I just wanted to write this down and for someone to hopefully have been in the same situation and give me advice.
Also I worry much about money and how I will pay for everything when living alone.
#111390 to #111265 - anonymous (01/12/2014) [-]
Your home is where you live now. your parents will be sad that you moved out but they will get over it and so will you, neither of you are used to this change yet. It will take time.

If its for your mental health then you should not move back home. You need to workout a budget and stick to it, if you need to, get a house-mate or more working hours. Pre-plan your meals and turn off all lights/electronics when your not using them. If you have a talent/skill (like photoshop or painting) U can use that to earn some extra cash on occasion.

A few weeks ago my friend, who is a fucking huge smoker (wakes up at 5am before school to get a coffee, steal a pie from the grocery store, and smoke every day) coughed up some black shit. Yesterday in class, he coughed up blood and ran to the bathroom. He's 16.

Does this just mean his lungs are fucking terrible or does he have cancer or some shit
User avatar #111365 to #111242 - aherorising ONLINE (01/12/2014) [-]

just a bit of background- went to an extremely religious Catholic private school for elementary, switched to public school in 6th grade, raised by a very laid back and open minded (primarily Catholic but there's an ample amount of diversity) family.
Anyway, after leaving private school, I learned to think for myself for once (this was not exactly encouraged at my elementary school). Within a few years, I went from Catholic to Agnostic to Atheist. It's been several years since then and I still identify as Atheist.
However, lately I've found myself mumbling my old bedtime prayers that I used to recite. I've thought very critically about it because it really threw me for a loop when I realized what I was doing and I've come to the conclusion that I still don't believe in God. However, I still feel myself wanting to recite the prayers.
Anyone have any idea why this might be?

Son can you tell me why you decided to leave god?Im not gonna reject you or anything because of it but i would just like to know

It can be a few things like habit or something in the back of your mind awakening

My school had always taught me to fear God and I became a very worried child. I grew up thinking many things were 'evil' when really, I was just being exposed to a bunch of fundamentalist nutjobs (this is why my parents eventually decided to put e in public school). I remember one time in the 5th grade when we were assigning Secret Santas and the teacher was going around the class having each student announce what they would like for Christmas. When it got to me, I said I liked magic sets from the dollar store (I wanted to be a magician). My teacher decided that the most appropriate way to respond to that would be to say, "Oh, sorry, gabs, but magic is of the devil so you can't do that." I was heartbroken and terrified. This was just a regular thing for me though. It was the norm.
Once I started attending public school, it was such a huge shock to me that there was so much diversity and freedom outside of my little cage. I began to feel that if there was a God, there was no way He could be so rigid and cruel. Eventually, I just stopped believing altogether.

P.S. I'm a girl.

ok then daughter
The best way to describe this is through the open letter from god
"Every one of your religions claims there's only one of Me (which by the way, is absolutely true). But in the very next breath, each religion claims it's My favourite one. And each claims its bible was written personally by Me, and that all the other bible's are man-made. Oh, Me. How do I even begin to put a stop to such complicated nonsense?

Okay, listen up now. I'm your Father AND Mother, and I don't play favourites among My children. Also, I hate to break it to you, but I don't write. My longhand is awful, and I've always been more of a "doer" anyway. So ALL of your books, including those bible's, were written by men and women. There were inspired, remarkable people, but they also made mistakes here and there. I made sure of that, so that you would never trust a written word more than your own living heart."

God doesn't really want you to worship him or be afraid of him he just wants you to live your life happily and be a good person.Religions have more hate in them because they were made by human beings and were honestly the most fucked up species i can think of
User avatar #111260 to #111254 - gabsmatags (01/11/2014) [-]
I appreciate your words, I really do. But to be quite honest, I don't believe in God and I don't think I'm in the process of doing so. Though I think faith is a wonderful thing and I would quite like to believe in something as it seems like a very fulfilling thing when it isn't driven by fear or hate, I can only entertain the thought in my imagination as my reason goes against it. I do hope that if there is a God out there, He is as you say He is.

Believeing in god doesn't have to be a thing driven by fear or hate it can be with love and kindness which you probably wont find in big churches since they're in it for the money
You don't need to believe in god and you don't have to if you don't want to just try to be the best person you can be.

Youtube will NOT stop asking me to change my name. It's not something that randomly pops up either, every time I try to comment it tries to make me change to my real name, which I will NEVER put on the internet. It won't let me comment at all until I change my name, and it's pissing me off. Anyone know how to fix it?
User avatar #111343 to #111237 - advicedude (01/12/2014) [-]
I get it too bro.
User avatar #111244 to #111237 - snoopi (01/11/2014) [-]
YouTube: Would you like to use your real name?
Me: No
YouTube: Okay, we'll ask you again later.

It's the YouTube apocalypse my friend. Hate to say that until Google realizes that YouTube sucks significantly more now then we just have to live with it.
