ok you know what?
screw maplestory too, bunch of slack-jawed adolescents with their cutting and their emo butthurt whining. Im coming back to gaia!

for the moment.

I quit gaia
I've been here too long and spent too much money for too much trouble. i only play maplestory now, because the site is loaded with crap and ads. You can't even navigate correctly anymore, and none of the links seem to work without timing out.

Those who play, my server is khaini and you can ask for my user if you want.

Goodbye.

Paradox?
A baby girl is mysteriously dropped off at an orphanage in Cleveland in 1945. "Jane" grows up lonely and dejected, not knowing who her parents are, until one day in 1963 she is strangely attracted to a drifter. She falls in love with him, but just when things are looking up for Jane a series of disasters strikes: First, she becomes pregnant by the drifter, who then disappears. Second, during the complicated delivery doctors discover that Jane has both sets of sex organs, and to save her life, they most surgically convert "her" to a "him." Finally, a mysterious stranger kidnaps her baby from the delivery room.

Reeling from these disasters, rejected from society, scorned by fate, "he" becomes a drunkard and a drifter. Not only has Jane lost her parents and her lover, but he has lost his only child as well. Years later, in 1970, he stumbles into a lonely bar, called Pop's Place, and spills out his pathetic story to an elderly bartender. The sympathetic bartender offers the drifter the chance to avenge the stranger who left her pregnant and abandoned, on the condition that he join the "time traveller corps." Both of them enter a time machine and the bartender drops the drifter off in 1963. The drifter is strangely attracted to a young orphan girl, who subsequently becomes pregnant.

The bartender then goes forward 9 months, kidnaps the baby girl from the hospital, and drops the baby off in an orphanage back in 1945. Then the bartender drops off the thoroughly confused drifter in 1985, to enlist in the time traveller corps. The drifter eventually gets his life together and becomes respected and elderly member of the time traveller corps, and then disguises himself as a bartender and has his most difficult mission: a date with destiny, meeting a certain drifter at Pop's Place in 1970.

Five
But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?

On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammelled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains.

Starting out out gaia.
If you're new starting out, there are a few tips you can learn to maximize your gaia gold.

Here alone you get nearly 200 gold, not bad for a minute's work.

Now, use the daily chance (goes without saying) and sell the articles of clothing you are given, as well as any housing items. Most of them can sell for anywhere from 25 to upwards of 300 gold, not to mention you may also recieve gold, tokens and bait, even a fishing rod.

If you got tokens, try your luck at cards, they're more stable than slots. Play until you run out of tokens, chances are you would be between 75% to 120% of your token count, you can easily sell these for 2 gold apiece.

When you get better at it you can earn even more tokens to sell for more gold.

Of course, this isn't the only way to get rich. If you can, consider investing in a STrength rod and fishing in durem. Practice will earn you fish worth lots of gold, and since you get free bait anyway from the daily chance you'll be catching them till the sun rises.

After a few weeks you should see your gold balloon into the four digits or possibly five easily. Now would be a good time to start investing. If you haren't already, open up a vend shop via the gambino bank, and start hunting for deals in the exchange. The golden rule remains, always buy low and sell for more than you paid, never spend to keep an item since you will be freezing the gold you spent on it (unless it's an interest-bearing item, such as an MC, box, or event article).

If you can do it, consider making a real money donation to gaia. There has never been a better time for the items, because with inflation at nearly 600% (compared to the 2500 gold average for donations items during their first releases) a single donation can earn you more money than doing any of the above for over a week!

It's no secret there are many ways to earn gold on Gaia now, i've just outlined the basics. Go now, and get rich!

Stop the murderous bread!
Recent research by top scientists on bread indicated that:


1. More than 98 percent of convicted felons are bread users.

2. Fully HALF of all children who grow up in bread-consuming households score below average on standardized tests.

3. In the 18th century, when virtually all bread was baked in the home, the average life expectancy was less than 50 years; infant mortality rates were unacceptably high; many women died in childbirth; and diseases such as typhoid, yellow fever, and influenza ravaged whole nations.

4. More than 90 percent of violent crimes are committed within 24 hours of eating bread.

5. Bread is made from a substance called "dough." It has been proven that as little as one pound of dough can be used to suffocate a mouse. The average American eats more bread than that in one month!

6. Primitive tribal societies that have no bread exhibit a low incidence of cancer, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease, and osteoporosis.

7. Bread has been proven to be addictive. Subjects deprived of bread and given only water to eat begged for bread after as little as two days.

8. Bread is often a "gateway" food item, leading the user to "harder" items such as butter, jelly, peanut butter, and even cold cuts.

9. Bread has been proven to absorb water. Since the human body is more than 90 percent water, it follows that eating bread could lead to your body being taken over by this absorptive food product, turning you into a soggy, gooey bread-pudding person.

10. Newborn babies can choke on bread.

11. Bread is baked at temperatures as high as 400 degrees Fahrenheit! That kind of heat can kill an adult in less than one minute.


We must put an end to this downward spiral of madness! Take a stand! Write your senators, congressmen, anyone. Yell it out a window. Spread the word!

Taxes
They suck. I'm so tired.
