I assume (they show the prison cage blown open) that he hit it with lightning and then proceeded to muscle through the guards. That could have been done just before the eclipse or maybe during, I don't know how it effects lightning bending.
User avatar #118 - epicalania (02/08/2015) [-]
Does it? I didn't remember that bit, my guess is that he did that just before the eclipse, as lightning bending is still a form of firebending, but he is still a powerful bender so he probably did it as he felt his bending weaken so he knew the guards woudn't be able to react and firebend at him before the eclipse stopped their bending.
This does mean my original guess was wrong
#74 - wraithguard (02/08/2015) [-]
He talks about learning from the other elemental style while teaching Zuko how to redirect lightning.
User avatar #52 - psyachu (02/08/2015) [-]
About learning the other bendings' styles, he probably learned all of it from the white lotus (I could be wrong).
User avatar #117 - epicalania (02/08/2015) [-]
I don't know for sure, that sounds like a reasonable idea.
I just know that he talks about studying other bending styles, and explicitly stating that he learnt to redirect lightning from studying the waterbenders style.
Wraithguard says that he has studied from the other elements so I'll take that as the conformation I need to consider myself valid.

Well I never said you were wrong until right now, because I never said you were wrong. It's officially ATLA, maybe in your country you refer to it as LoA amongst locals but that's not what the fanbase or producers, writers, nick, etc. call it. So shortening it LoA is wrong. It's like trying to use slang that other people don't use. You can use it, but it's wrong and people might not understand. It's like the whole soccer/football thing. Use the right terminology around the right people. I also feel like your just bullshitting and it's actually Avatar: The Legend of Aang but you just like to shorten it because you only refer to the "Legend of Aang" part or it's translated to Legend of Aang, which is different and if it's the latter, then it's even more wrong because you're using a translated name instead of the common/official name, but is understandable. In any case at least you're not calling it The Last Airbender because motherfuckers can't differentiate between a masterpiece and garbage. Also I googled LoA and nothing popped up. So you're the only one or there's a very small amount of people who use LoA to refer to ATLA. Had we no context , literally nobody on this site would've known what LoA was. check yourself before you wreck yourself Also if i'm wrong, fucking cite it. I don't care if I'm wrong, just prove it with links and shit. If I'm wrong and you prove it, better for me because I'll be right next time and smarter.

Likely the best clues that it's fake would be:

A businessman refusing to service an entire party of people at the request of an individual despite children being in the party, likely meaning repeat business.
Manager not calling the cops when an assault occurred in his business, which is also trouble legally for him in every country I can speak of.
Public sex in front of a bunch of people as part of a show including staging a rape with no legal consequence?
Walking around in blatant BDSM and rubbing his face on a child?

In what shit-tier, Somalia-ass country are these people? More likely he's actually sad about something else and was making shit up. There may be a grain of truth to it, anything from his gf attempting or committing suicide to them using BDSM practices, but a large portion of the story (As in 95% of it) is almost certainly just made right the fuck up.
#139 - anonexplains (02/07/2015) [-]
Money makes the world go around, enough money would make any person close it down - it's not uncommon to rent such places for events/parties, just happened to be a party of two.

Managers in those places are like managers in almost every place, they are behind doors working on shit and only really come out once in a while to check on things or if they get called ("let me go get the manager.", there's a reason that is heard so often rather than "I am the manager"). So it's perfectly valid that the manager didn't know, as he didn't make a big scene out of it beyond embarrassing the dude.

A lot of countries allow public sex - just not full on porn style. You're allowed to wet your dick, but can't show it around. Some areas are forbidden though, weird laws for it.

Walking around with a collar and leash is not blatant BDSM, come on now bruh. Rubbing face on kid, whilst it could be creepy as fuck, as long as the kid is playing along it's just that. It did say "no pedo shit".

The guy posted picture of both of them, girl was shot by a nigger for her purse - some of them found a local news thing that matched what happened, but he didn't confirm if that is where they lived.

I am not saying everything written there is 100% true, every good story deserves embellishment, but jumping to conclusion that 95% of it is bullshit based on the few "best clues" you have is far-fetched, to say the least. Also, writing or telling stories about someone you loved after they passed, it is an easy thing for every memory to seem that much more special (i.e you remember the events a little better than it actually was) or you purposely embellish the story to honour the person / memory.
#141 - MDrDeathC (02/07/2015) [-]
The guy wasn't rich. How much would he have offered? Enough to overpower husband, wife, and childrens' tickets for not just that time but also the repeat business?

No, a lot of countries do not allow public sex. Not explicit (albeit staged) rape and full-on nudity in full view for fucking sure, but voyeurism is something there is just no way that there's legality for. Fucking in your backyard or something, sure. Some places are lax like that. Go walk around with your cock out, see what happens.

Walking around being led around on a leash is literally BDSM. It's not an exaggeration or sensationalism. It's part of the BD part, Bondage/Domination. SM stands for Sadism/Masochism in case you're wondering. So is giving orders with a "rank" assigned by either for the other, another thing they do although it's much less likely to be sneered at. Regarding the face rubbing thing, that's like sucking dick and saying "no homo." I'd kick the fucker's teeth in if he'd done such a thing to my hypothetical kid.

Finding a news article where someone was shot by a mugger isn't hard. Name a day and it's happened somewhere.
#148 - anonexplains (02/07/2015) [-]
Jesus Christ, I pity you for your cynicism.

I don't know how expensive the tickets were, but it's still not unheard of for people to buy up an area for a little while - it's not like they paid for it for a week. I'll give it to you though, unlikely if there were a lot of kids there.

Yes, yes there are. Several in Europe, Amsterdam has a park (can't remember the name) but it's totally fine to have sex in the park provided it's in the evening or night time when children are less likely to be around, and you have to pick up your condoms.

Denmark, in Copenhagen, it's the same- but not allowed in playground or during day time - even loud sex. Remove semen after you're done and throw condoms and stuff in the trash.

I know what it means, but it's not blatant, fucking hell - there's worse shit going on at furry conventions and the like. As I said, creepy as fuck, and you can be damn sure I'd cause a scene if it was my own daughter or niece, and no it's not - dick sucking part I mean. The fact that you'd kick the fucker's teeth in, in front of your child if she wasn't frightened and the person not doing anything remotely sexually or pedo shit says more about your own problems mate.

Alright, find me a news article of girl that was shot and murdered by a nigger outside of a drug store, and had her purse stolen - date; June 9th 2012
#154 - MDrDeathC (02/07/2015) [-]
If what you're saying is true, then it's my mistake, but it's pretty appalling. Even with that, noone called the cops when it was made out to be a rape, just everyone watched except one guy that eventually stepped forward?

Being shirtless, wearing a collar, and being led by a leash is blatant. I don't know why you disagree. Yeah, he wasn't wearing a buttplug, but are you led by a leash? Does someone walk you?

If I'd seen a man crouched next to my child, shirtless, and collared rubbing his face on my kid, you're goddamned right I'd hit him. If you disagree with me, when it's you in that situation, that's your call to make. I've said my piece on that, and I stand by it. I'd do the same if someone did such a thing to any member of my family assuming they were, again, a random-ass dude or if it were say a hypothetical wife or fiancee or something. You can't just do creepy-ass shit and say "didn't count."

Regarding the article, I said that you can find an instance of an armed robbery on any day. Coincidences occur, as do shaping a story to "evidence" already in place, same as using a picture you found online as your profile picture and later more of the same person to "prove your identity." You gonna ask for me to match her fucking blood type, too?

There's all kinds of shit that happened on your chosen day.

It's hard to say "I hope I'm wrong," because of how the story supposedly ends. Perhaps it's wishful thinking on my part, the idea that being powerless to stop someone from killing someone you care about is the scariest thing in the world to me. Various things have happened. However, as it is, a lot of the story just doesn't ring true. It sounds like those tales fishermen are jokingly told to tell of the "one that got away."
#161 - anonexplains (02/07/2015) [-]
Yeah, I fully agree with you - it's pretty appalling, but I prefer to do the sex in private, I am not exhibitionist.

Fair enough, I couldn't remember the details, and had read it before so didn't read it all again. Shirtless, and lead around, that's a bit beyond creepy. As for kicking his teeth in, I wouldn't turn to violence as that would just come back to fuck my day up, and I have seen and done enough violence - and I'd not want my daughter or niece to be subject to it if the situation didn't really need it. That said, I'd throw him the fuck away.

That's what I mean, they found an article that matched everything he said in the thread, be it coincidence or that he based it off of it to begin with, I don't know. The world is pretty fucked up, stories told through the eyes of someone who wants it to sound good is probably likely to make some things up or add things to make the read more enjoyable.
#162 - MDrDeathC (02/07/2015) [-]
Regardless of truth, it is a pretty interesting story.

it's ATLA. Only some foreign countries called it Avatar: The Legend of Aang and I don't recall it being called Legend of Aang anywhere.

In my country it's the legend of Aang, and its the legend of Korra not legend of Korra but people still shorten it to LoK so shortening the legend of Aang to LoA is correct too.

to support this.In S1,Mako was even seen working in a power plant.

User avatar #35 - epicalania (02/07/2015) [-]
Yes, that's where I got most of the ideas from.
The firebenders generating electricity and the metabending police squads are the best examples I can think of to show how the avatar world is already heading that way.
In my idea I believe that the main way that the avatar would be more powerful than others is that the avatar can combine their bending in any of the possible combinations with literally the most synchronisation between the bendings possible (ie shs combining her bending with her own bending, other people can't match how close that could merge) and the avatar it seems is a powerful bender by default, as we can see from some of the feats that Aang and Korra have done over the course of the show

That said, I'd throw him the fuck away.

That's what I mean, they found an article that matched everything he said in the thread, be it coincidence or that he based it off of it to begin with, I don't know. The world is pretty fucked up, stories told through the eyes of someone who wants it to sound good is probably likely to make some things up or add things to make the read more enjoyable.

Regardless of truth, it is a pretty interesting story.

I'm gonna go to sleep, dude. It's about 0700 and I can't afford to put myself back on a daytime schedule. Have a good one.

MY RESONCE

hurple does rhyme and is a word tho i wasnt talking about the rhyme with purple jsut hunt and month
chilver is a noun so allthough it rhymes i can make an object name it durple and it rhymes with purple so nouns are usually left out.
millionth is another one that rhymes but its borderline a forced rhyme
this is because millionths rhyming sound is IONTH while month is just ONTH

You didnt mention them but I included them as they are common ones to use with the 'fact' of certain words not having any rhymes, and as chilver is a common noun and not a proper noun it is usually counted, millionth is not a forced rhyme nor a borderline forced rhyme as the correct classical English pronunciation is mill-i-onth, with the onth rhyming with month, mill-i-onth.
Thank you

well there you go i have no real arguements against you so i can no longer keep the conversation going (agree or not its always good to point out reasons against)
so you win

Thank you a value that you were willing to actually put your argument forward in this, i welcome any and all reasonable arguments to anything i say, this is reasonable as I have seen this sort of misconception alot and it may eventually become a large part of English, but for now it is still the same.

i believed you from the start but you know i cant jsut let you walk all over my comment
the issue i see with millionth is that when i say it at least i do the ionth as 1 syllable so when i say it it doesnt rhyme quite right so i say its a forced ryme because by definition it rhymes when u say it a little off (so if i spaced the i out)
the issue with most rhyming facts is just theres too many words and you cant really decide the rules of rhyming as i said i can make an object name it horange and it rhymes with orange so does that count

Like I said many people do pronounce it that way and I feel it is very likely it will become the proper pronunciation soon, English seems to be slowly evolving into a very fast language.

well english is a language based off other languages...words get added in all the time from other languages thats why origin is so useful in a spelling bee
User avatar #21 to #20 - epicalania (10/13/2013) [-]
True, it also evolves from its own words, both in useful ways (don't can't) and not so useful ways (lol, swag) although one could argue that the concept of contractions itself came from the Romans (Latin is the oldest language I know that has contractions, for example hodie is a contraction of hoc die).
User avatar #22 to #21 - itemexchange (10/13/2013) [-]
im pretty sure 80% of latin words are pretty much 2 regular words put together to mean somehting new based on the words
User avatar #23 to #22 - epicalania (10/13/2013) [-]
NO, there are many compound words (which are different from contractions and many older languages have them as well) but contractions are alot rarer, I am a second year Latin student and the only one I can think of right now is hodie

idk much about language all i know is whenever im learning something they always go
*word* derives from the latin word *word* and *word*
where like the first part is a few letters and last part is a few letters
