[Gothic 3] Resisted 40 min.

Getting straight to the point: Gothic 3 is a fail. Constantly I've had a feeling that it's rather a product, than a game (in a meaning of art). Product that should attract with the mark and his sparkly packet - the graphics. By the way, 3rd's graphics doesn't even look 'gothic', reminds me of kinda WoW or other shitty mainstream RPGs - they're too damn shiny. But still, it isn't worst about it.

[film] T is for Twilight and trivial

I am supposed to say that it's amazing how such a trivial crap like Twilight Saga can achieve such a popularity. But I won't. Why? It's actually quite easy to see and understand why Twilight is so adored by people *and especially* by teenage girls. Probably you'd automatically think 'Edward' as a response at first. Yeah, but I'd get to him later. First, look at the main character - Bella. She is a true symbol of nowadays teenage girls, the target of the Twilight products. Beginning from the appearance. They couldn't choose a prettier actress for her role because not every girl could equate to her then.

[life] Play D&D and end as a pick-up artist

PUA? NLP? AFC? Sarge? Neg? Peackock? Sounds familiar? Not?

Mystery (founder of pick-up artists community) claims that he was a "late bloomer" and spent the early years of his life playing Dungeons and Dragons, and that his limited success with women until his early twenties led him to go to nightclubs every night and try different ways to attract women. He states that years of observation and trial and error led to the system he teaches for meeting women.

[psychology] builder, negiotator, explorer, director - who are you?

I've just finished Why Him, Why Her by Helen Fisher

> born 1945 
> anthropology professor, human behavior researcher at Rutgers University, studied romantic interpersonal attraction for over 30 years
> currently the most referenced scholar in the love research community

More than with parts about love, my attention was attracted with her view of personality types division.

[blogs] (un)originality that kills

Once I've had a mood to look for interesting blogs of people from my region. So I've fled by tens pages of them and the ones which took my attention I could count on the fingers of my hand. Why is that? No, I'm not a nerd. Sometimes I like to read texts completely unconnected with my interests, provided it's written in a interesting way. So what's the point?

[investing] Something new

:-). Yes, Folmi's enthusiasm is back because he has just discovered his new playground - market investing. Few weeks ago one psycho test proved that my personality suits this activity, so I asked myself why don't give a try. Computer games bored my lately anyway and in addition I've put an interest in investing and generally in passive income time before so it seemed to be a good turning point for starting to do something fo' real.

How-to-get-started sites lead me to Plus500 - free World's Trading Machine, where I could play for a test with virtual money. So I would learn how it all works. Suddenly reading about market becomes very interesting once you've earn your first $ ;) I'm at the very beginning, but what I've learned so far:

[Gothic 2] The beast is slayed

Days played: 20
Hours: about 50

It definitely wasn't a speedrun, I was slowly enjoying the game - what my character screen proves anyway. I've played Gothic 2 more than 10 times and even this time I've discovered few new things: small quests, events or dialogs, like:
