Some dude I used to DM for used to bring his my little pony toys to the game. I eventually tried to get him to stop, he threw the biggest fit i've ever seen a grown man do.

This is exactly what I said to him.

We got a bunch of those in my rpg club, but two of them constantly argue about shitty retarded stuff. Although one of them is taunting all the time for the sake of getting into arguments with people :

>"I really enjoy my mac... it's so much better than PCs..."
>"What ? No dude, PCs are MUCH BETTER"

>" Anon's system is really bad, I mean, no one likes warhammer anymore"
>"Shut up man your system is worse because my system has blahblahblah"

To me the best argument yet :

>"Mozzarella doesn't go well with XXX ingredients in a pizza because it is a strong cheese. I know what I'm saying, I've worked in a pizza shop for three years."
>"DUDE NO. You are SO wrong right here it goes VERY WELL with these ingredients because it is a strong cheese only when it's XXXX type of mozzarella. I'm 25% Italian, so I know better than someone who worked in some kind of pizza hut."

They've stopped now, but man oh man, these dudes...
Not only are they annoying and often taunting us, but one of them is properly insulting everything he doesn't like/care about. He has often insulted my style of DMing, my systems, my campaigns and my universes because to him it's shit.
Even though people don't like him as a DM, it doesn't matter.

That kind of person is the kind of person who self-righteously declares people arrogant for disagreeing with him. The "points of view" excuse isn't something he believes, because he acts as if his own were facts despite not addressing this belief; he considers disagreement "arrogant" because, to him, it's like claiming to have authority equal to God.

This isn't about the principle of the matter. This is about you. Not your friends, not the thievery, or his conveniently-poorly-hidden fetish habits. This is because some wankstain had the audacity to steal FROM YOU. That's fine with me if you at least recognize this.

Nah, you are totally right. Stealing Magic cards is kind of my addiction and I wish somebody "punished" me for it so I would drop the habit. The thing is, there are zero repercussions. Everyone considers calling police petty(hey, that was only like ten bucks), and I am yet to be publically acussed. No one wants to be, well, that guy.

hey lemme just

what would i have done, anons? taken the guy's shit, gotten him banned from the store, and if I found him, cornered him and socked him in the jaw. A little scuffle. And it isn't the anon's actions that I care at all about: he did some prank shit that's inconsequential. It's the anon's attitude to the whole thing. Consider it in abstract:

Some nerd steals from some nerd. The victim nerd gets mad and finds the internet-footprint of another nerd and sends it to that nerd's folks.

And then he uses the line "Those with power will use that power."? It's making a mountain out of a molehill and it comes after attempts to justify a dick move by going "W-well, he deserved it!" and then going "W-well, i-it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks anyway!

Now, see, it's not quite a ~good~ thing to do, but it's probably what my response would be. And it isn't like it expresses some ~power~ on my part, because if the guy has the potential to fight back, it ceases to be as reasonable an option.

when most people think of a strong punch (that is, people who've never learned), they think it involves having BEEG MUSCLES and putting ALL THAT POWER INTO A BLOW, which indeed will leave a mark and bruising

if you learn to throw light punches but use the force of your body and momentum, you can shock someone and leave a considerable impact without causing tremendous pain or injury. If you get shoved, are there bruises where you were pushed? It's the same concept, except that your aim is to make them feel some pain if they don't move with the blow.

My resident That Guy is always trying to one-up me as a GM. Out of game when we discuss the goings-on of our campaigns and talk about the settings we make he tries his best to dissect and analyse my work and then smugly proclaims he's 'worked it out' and 'knows where you got your influence from'.

He'll ramble on about it, basically trying to diminish as much significance as he can from my stuff so he can then plug his own works in front of me and my friends. It happens with crunch as well as fluff (I like making homebrews and have done so for years).

Why he has to do any of this when it has never won him any support or respect I will never understand. Its as though he lives inside his own head most of the time. Shame decent roleplayers are in short supply in my local area.

But bad if, say, the state has a food welfare program going on to ensure you have plenty to eat, which is the case in the USA.

Bread and pasta should be a minority, you should primarily be eating meat, then vegetables, then fruits, then bread/pasta, and last of all salt/fat.

/fit/ doesn't know shit about general diet. I'd advise not going there.

The only guaranteed way to lose weight is to count calories. Carbohydrate timing is as important as quantity. Just filling up on veggies is an easy way to lower calories (and maximize fiber intake which is equally important) due to lower caloric density. But there are ways to healthily incorporate carbs and protein that don't involve entire heads of celery each day.

I got something similer to this in my group, one of my players constantly talks of "breaking my campaign" via using a third party class to basically be a shitty gestalt. The sad thing is his third party class could be powerful if he prestige class but instead the moron is looking to stack sneak attacks.

When the party reaches level 20 he'll be level 10 and 9 in two different classes for a total sneak attack damage of 10d6.

We're playing pathfinder, so by level 12 when he is 5 and 6 in his classes he'll be fucked because undead, oozes, outsiders, elementals, and pretty much every propitiate CR enemy either ignores stealth entirely, can't be caught flat footed, or can't be hit by sneak attacks.

I wouldn't mind it if he actually knew what he was doing. Hilariously I have a house rule that armor bonus gives you untyped DR (so full plate gives DR 9/-) for the sake of balance and he doesn't bother exploiting that despite it being really easy.

To make matters worse I'm going to be playing aside him in our next campaign as a player and he honestly thinks I plan on killing him or is obsessed with proving he knows the system better or some stupid shit. I plan on making a dwarf necromancer (undead lord cleric) and while it is indeed powerful I'm afraid he'll do something stupid like pick a good aligned cleric or paladin then start shit and force me to kill him.

I'm hoping to use ic roleplay to persuade him otherwise, divert the problem before it really starts, you know?

But the pronouns are what triggers the WoJ's loathing. They may describe the things they want to hate to death as far, far worse than they are, but the things they're actually responding to are the reasonable, harmless opinions that are written off as "disguises" for their "true" unspeakable evil strawman.
