Poll Simulator 2016
One-shot kill for all enemies, whilst those related to the protagonist maintain top stamina even after getting shot a couple of times.
The most prominent example that I can think of is every American military movie ever, especially of the likes of the Lone Survivor and American Sniper. In American Sniper, there was this one scene though where thank god a friendly face dies after being headshot by some Taliban, and that point was literally the first time a US soldier got killed in one hit in that movie, whilst the protagonist could still one-hit-kill everything with some standard issue .48 caliber rifle. And don't even get me cocked up about Lone Survivor: one of the protagonists survived a headshot even though enemy forces would still die on the spot after being hit at their guts. But I guess that God blessed America, and nobody else in those movies.
So, I've been having this problem ever since I put together this build but I hadn't addressed it anywhere yet in an endeavour to find out what exactly is going on. I've tried searching on the web for a solution but I couldn't find anything specific that could really help me.
For the sake of addressing purposes I'm going to post my full system build.
CPU: Intel Core i5-6600k
RAM: Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4 2400Mhz 8Gb
GPU: MSI Radeon R9 380 2Gb factory overclocked
M/B: ASRock H170 Pro4
Kingston SSDNow V300 SSD 120Gb + Seagate Barracuda HDD 1Tb
Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo
OS: Windows 10
RSoD's do ALWAYS occur whenever I'm in a gaming session for over ten minutes. Apparently, I don't get this problem when playing Minecraft at all, but I keep getting it with games like Metro Last Light, Wildstar, etc.
My personal theory regarding the RSoD's is that the GPU might require more power than the amount that my PSU is capable of providing. However, I highly doupt this possibility since 550 watts is what people seem to recommend around the web for a single R9 380 GPU. Ever since I first installed the GPU I had problems installing the drivers provided in the DVD that came within the box (couldn't install the AMD Gaming Evolved App) but after I uninstalled those drivers and downloaded the new Crimson software, everything installed correctly.
Apart from the RSoD's that are by far the biggest nuisance of all since they don't allow me to run any game at all, the system does also crash quite often with regular BSoD's, usually displaying to me one the following messages:
Whenever I get the 'kernel security check failure' crash reason, Windows runs a disk check during the next startup but never finds anything. I've also been getting a couple of other reasons that I cannot quite recall right now to post here. I will update the thread with any new crashes. Whenever I get the 'system exception not handled' reason, Windows will go on a repair-reboot circle that lasts for about 2 seconds per reboot and forces my system to reboot 6-7 times before starting up regularly again.
I've tried to run a repair through the Windows DVD but I would always get a message according to which Windows couldn't run repairs due to a missing file in the system.
I haven't ran a proper temperature or voltage check, etc, yet, but my bare hands suggest that the temperatures inside my build couldn't possibly reach more than 60-65 degrees in a 15 degree environment. I can't stress test that under a game load because, you know, the system crashes soon after I launch the game.
If you have any ideas and suggestions about my issue please post them.
Hey! I'm Rainbow_Girl, and you've probably seen me around. I've been here for a few months, but haven't bothered to post here until now. I'm 10 (almost 11) and in fifth grade. I love reading, writing, video games, and drama. I can be found in the roleplaying section most commonly, but I'm also around here in general OT, and I'm also in General Discussion. Been playing Minecraft since Feb 2014 and I have no intention of stopping. Unfortunately, I think school has other ideas. Speaking of school, my favorite subject is math. Weird, huh? Well, I'm a weird person. One last thing about me is that I actually use this forum on my iPad, instead of a computer. Keep calm and rainbow on!
A long, fat kebab.
A punch in the face because I don't like Minecraft avatars.
I'd choose to help the young man. I really can't understand why people can't help other people just because they don't know them. I might not know him personally, but I do know that there are others who are in desperate need of him. Saving him would save many more lives, so I'd definetely choose to save that man.
Like DaBomb mentioned, it's just a matter of getting rid of that layer of fat.
On my level of knowledge, might I recommend you to drink a lot of water. I can't stress the importance of drinking water enough to accumulate the desired results. Water is the air of your stomach, it is required in order for most decomposing functions to be performed. Just don't mix match water with food, because water does only become effective once it blends with your stomach fluids. Fat is by definition a hydrophobic molecule, which means that plain water can't touch it.
Other than that, if you are leading an unhealthy eating habit (for which I don't put the blame on neither you nor your parents), you can always try preparing some "potions" of your own that can help you with that struggle. Every food that contains acids is actually a good remedy against fat. Try putting more lemon into your food. You can also drink a glass of warm water mixed with the juice of one or two lemons every morning. Make some ginger beer, which is both refreshing and nutritious. If you have the appropriate kitchenware in your house, blend and mix low-fat milk with bananas, honey and cinnamon for a delicious and energizing smoothie with low fatty acid percentage.
Then, of course, there are the general guidelines that don't require anything special to follow. Try drinking two glasses of water everyday BEFORE breakfast. Do NEVER skip breakfast. Drink at least 2 litres of litres per day. This might sound kinda outlandish at first, but trust me, if you start moving around your place with a glass full of water always in hand, you're gonna get used to it and you will eventually consume even a larger quantity without even noticing it. Don't drink water whilst eating lunch, keep your glass aside and chug it down once your meal is over. If said meal is comprised of meat sided with carb bombs like chips, pasta, rice or bread, make sure to hit the mill three hours after you've finished eating and spend a couple of hours running.
If you do plan to take up some kind of fat-burning activity, may I suggest you swimming. Out of personal experience, joining a swimming sports team and following their practice scedule is the best way to accumulate the body of your dreams. You won't believe just how many calories swimmers burn. It's also one of the few activities that naturally develops the muscle mass of your backs and your shoulderblades, groups that are difficult to exercise in, say, a gym class.
Well, I think that's all that I can think of.
Steven, we've asked you several times already, and we aren't going to stop. You are. It's not gonna take long before mods step in. (you've been flagged already) I don't know whats going to happen, but it's not going to be good, so you might get off with a warning if you cut it out now.
Just in case you didn't know, you
A. aren't entertaining anyone
B. aren't getting any extra publicity for your art (plus you kinda are making everyone hate you, which isn't getting you "fans")
and C. aren't "helping the thread by posting lots of art."
Unless there's some obvious motive I'm missing, I'd assume that it's either one of the above listed, or else it's that you're trying to be rebellious and troll people.
Cut it out or reap the consequences.
That does not exactly change the fact that every piece of art of you contains the same thing. The work either contains:
- Computer parts
- Portraits of Dawn from Pokémon and Jacksepticeye (whatever the strange motif behind that might be)
- Very rarely, a SUV from an emergency service.
At this rate, it's not even art anymore but litterally mass production. And even then, I kind of do fail to see how a heigth chart of two Youtubers and Dawn or a chart showing various types of guns is art.
Soooo, I've been reviewing everyone's messages for the past 5 pages now and though I was not planning on getting involved in the argument I felt i needed to say something and just be a bit of the devils advocate here. Yes, his stuff isn't top quality compared to some of the other artists in here probably because he is young and yes I agree that if he is going to post dumps of his work, he needs to hide them in spoilers. You guys are right in asking him to do that. And he is now which is good. however telling him he cant post any of his original work because it "all looks the same and thus it isn't art" sounds more of group harassment rather than a justifiable reason he shouldn't be allowed to post drawings he makes. i mean just look at some famous artists like Picasso, you could argue that all his work looks the "same" yet his work is still art. Picasso had a style he painted in and despite how young this Steven kid is or how good his drawings are, all he is really doing is drawing in his style. that doesn't warrant people harassing him and telling him he is not allowed to post stuff here.
I think he should hide his art in spoilers if he is going to dump. But he doesn't deserve to be harassed. if you guys don't like looking at his art, then just don't click the spoilers. There now everyone can be happy.

Appearance: Leo is a little taller than average with light brown hair and a thin, tanned face. His eyes are a bright blue and his face is relatively free from scars. He is thin, but not scrawny, and fit. His hair is short and messy. All this gives him a kindly look and shows that he spends a lot of time outside.

He wears a pair of leather gloves with visible scratches in them. On his feet are a pair of comfortable leather boots.
Aer is a young avian wind spirit, he stands at about 35cm from the top of his head to the base of his talons with a further 25cm of tail feathers. His feathers are a cool shade of aqua with traces of royal blue feathers along the edge of his wings and mixed in with his long tail feathers. His talons and beak are sharp, his eyes are a calm greyish blue. On top of his head is a crest of light blue feathers that run down the back of his neck.
Equipment: Bow, 25 arrows, quiver, bronze dagger and leather gloves and boots. Leo also carries the few coins he has, a water flask and a piece of bread.

- Telepathy (MAG 2+): Can communicate using thoughts, mostly used with Leo
Leo grew up surrounded by nature. His home village was a tiny collection of houses and farms surrounded by thick woods with a single road leading out of it. Here, surrounded by incredibly old trees, Leo lived for the first part of his life. His parents lived as farmers, growing precious food from the earth, while Leo explored and played as children do.
Leo often wandered around the forest surrounding the village, he knew every part of that forest, every tree and every hidden path between the trees. Life in the village was peaceful, except for the occasional wild animal that strayed from the forest and threatened the animals that the farmers spent their lives looking after. Several of the villagers learnt how to defend themselves and their livestock from predators, and Leo was no exception. He learned archery, and became quite good at it with time. Although there was no archery range in the village, Leo still managed to practice his skills with makeshift targets made of straw and painted cloth.
Life in the village was fairly uneventful, except for one afternoon. It was just after midday and the sky was filled with darkened clouds as a great storm started. Soon a large part of the forest was alight from the lightning strikes and almost every villager hard at work pouring water on the flames in an effort to control the blaze. The source of the fire was just out of sight, but not out of hearing range. Leo could remember hearing the clash of metal and the screeches of the beast being fought.
What had happened was a party of knights belonging to a nearby castle ruled over by a greedy lord. This lord had decided to dabble in magic, a field in which he was inexperienced and performed foolhardy experiments. These experiments required rare ingredients, one of which came from a creature living in the forest. The villagers had known of its existence, but it had never proved to be a threat. Or it wasn't until the knights had been sent out to kill it. The dying screeches of a magnificent wind spirit echoed through the forest. It had tried to repel its attackers the only way it knew how, with the wind magic that such creatures were known for. The wind was strong and yet the knights persisted in their commander's greedy mission. But, ultimately, it was for nought as the mystical bird had fallen to the cold steel blades.
The fire was eventually brought under control and extinguished before it had claimed any buildings of the village. Leo had ventured out to see the aftermath. He walked across the thick ash that covered the ground and through the trees that had become little more than giant lumps of charcoal. The fire had taken its toll on the forest, the wind spirit hadn't meant to cause such destruction but it had to try to save itself. Leo was saddened by the sight of the ash, but something soon caught his eye. A bright blue, crystalline object stood out from the grey ash.
It was an egg. He gently picked up the egg, careful not to damage it. Leo steadily came to the realisation that it had belonged to the wind spirit and without its parent there wouldn't be anyone to take care of it. He swiftly made his way back to the village and, worrying that the egg was becoming cold, placed by the fireplace in his house. He spent weeks watching over the egg, trying to keep it warm and comfortable. Until one day...
The first sign he saw was a large crack appeared in the egg shell. First Leo worried that the egg was broken and would die, but as he saw more cracks forming he realised that this was not the case. Soon a very young wind spirit, complete with magnificent aqua feathers, crawled out of the broken shell. He named it 'Aer' and they soon become inseparable. Leo spent his time helping Aer learn to use its magic, to learn to fly and playing with the spirit. However he only succeeded in helping it to learn how to communicate telepathically with him.
Years later, Leo decided to leave the village. It was a tearful farewell but he was adamant about going out of the forest. Adventure was calling to him and Aer, so they set out on a journey whose destination they did not know. Through their wanderings they saw giant citadels, bustling cities and almost empty plains. Then Leo heard of one place he didn't want to miss, Life's Edge and the Abyss. He made his way with his companion, Aer, ready to investigate the town at the edge of the world.
Other: In a sense Leo and Aer work as two characters in that when they level up they both gain stat points, but only one of them will gain a skill.
