Quote from Nietzsche about Talent

One of my favorite quotes from him about talent and hard work:

“Do not talk about giftedness, inborn talents! One can name great men of all kinds who were very little gifted. They acquired greatness, became ‘geniuses’ (as we put it), through qualities the lack of which no one who knew what they were would boast of: they all pos­sessed that seriousness of the efficient workman which first learns to con­struct the parts properly before it ventures to fashion a great whole; they allowed themselves time for it, because they took more pleasure in making the little, secondary things well than in the effect of a dazzling whole”

 

Hard work pays off!

Lemonade Boys (Rough Draft, The Story Continues)

The King sat down with Dr. Jenkins.  “Thank you for meeting with me today Dr. Jenkins.”

“Oh no problem Johnny.” Dr Jenkins was relaxed today.  “What did you want to ask me about?”

“I have some questions about business.”

“Oh okay.  What kind of questions?”

“Well I want your advice on how to sell more of a product.  Just any kind of hypothetical simple product.”

Dr. Jenkins thought for a moment.  “Well, I think customer service can be very important.   Customers will come back if they are happy with the service.”

“Well Dr. Jenkins how do I make sure that the product itself is the best that it can be?”

Dr. Jenkins smirked, “Have you considered having the product be something that is addictive?”

The King’s eyes lit up, “Oh no I haven’t.”

Dr. Jenkins continued, “Well it is only an idea.  People know that cigarettes are bad for them but they still smoke them.  It is the nicotine in the cigarettes, it is addictive and people can’t help themselves.  They want it too badly.  So if I had a product and my main goal was to just sell as much as possible, then I would consider to make my product addictive.  If the customers have an addiction to it then they can’t help themselves and they need to buy it.”

The King had a smile on his face.  “Thank you very much Dr. Jenkins.”

Loser Guy Makes Horror Film (Documentary)

Just finished watching “AMERICAN MOVIE” and it was very good.  It is about a filmmaker named Mark and his goal is to finish his movie.

“I am a failure.” is the opening line of the movie and our main guy is Mark.  He has big dreams to make his films and he does not want to “be a nothing.”    I think he earns his money as a newspaper delivery guy.

The film is really entertaining and as it progresses you really are cheering for Mark to finish his movie and it is kind of amazing how he has so much support from the people in town.

The dialogue is funny and you really can’t make it up.   It really shows all of the difficulties involved in making a short low budget film.

It is called “American Movie” from 1999.  It is definitely worth a watch if you enjoy learning about films and you like underdogs!

(His horror movie itself is not super amazing but this documentary is really good)

Pokemon Challenge Update (RED BLUE) (NOV 26)

Hello All,

For my pokemon red challenge, I made it through the dark cave, I got a Mr Mime and taught it flash.  I need to get rid of Mr Mime as he is too powerful, psychic type.

GYRADOS is quite powerful and right now I am moving through using GYRADOS and my Pidgeotto.

I have put my WARTORTLE into the PC and won’t use it anymore.

I need to get my POLI WHIRL.

Also, Beedrill is pretty weak and useless.

One plan is to get the EXP ALL at some point to help level up my team.

but I am thinking I might be able to win the game just by getting my GYRADOS to a high enough level.   But I don’t have any pokemon who can use fire moves or electric moves so i might do something about that.

Also, I got Fly and can use that now.

Pokemon Challenge update (RED AND BLUE)

The Pokemon challenge is continuing on.

My Magikarp is still a Magikarp, but only 5 levels away from becoming Gyrados.

Soon I need to get rid of my Wartortle and begin the challenge in Ernest.

I have not defeated LT Surge yet.   But I do have BEDROLL and Pidgeotto and I have the Magikarp.

I JUST acquired CHANSEY!!!   I used the Chansey glitch in order to get a level 7 Chansey.  My game plan is to teach Chansey TOXIC deep in the game and I might also teach Chansey Seismic Toss.

I know for sure I need to use chansey   GYRADOS   PIDGEOT   Poliwrath and BEE DRILL.  the Sixth pokemon is up in the air, but it can’t be too powerful.  I’m leaning towards using a HAUNTER maybe.  but I am open to suggestions!!!

The main caveat is that none of my pokemon can know THUNDERBOLT or EARTHQUAKE or ICE BEAM as those moves are too strong.

Pokemon Challenge (Red and Blue)(Biscuit)

For my Pokemon Red I am challenging myself once again!   I find the game to be too easy for a player who knows the game.  If you have a Blastoise/Charizard and you get a Pidgeot, you play the game …. you eventually get a Snorlax and then you probably get a Zapdos or maybe an Articuno.  You can even use the Master ball to get one of those birds.  If you have a leveled up Charizard and a Snorlax and a Zapdos then it is pretty easy to dominate the game.   If you have a pokemon that can use Earthquake or a pokemon that can use Ice Beam or a pokemon that can use Thunderbolt that also helps to make the game quite easy (Especially with Ice beam and Thunderbolt).

I did a previous run where I did not want to use my starter or any legendaries.  Usually if I could use Blastoise and Zapdos then the game was easy.   So in my previous run (   https://djrobobiscuit.com/tag/clefable/ )    I ran through the game using Clefable and Vaporeon and Kadabra.  But that team was too powerful, Clefable had Thunderbolt and Tri Attack,  Vaporeon had Ice beam and surf,  Kadabra had psychic attacks.    My team was still too powerful,  their stats were not amazing but their moves were too strong.

So now I am going to use an even weaker team and i’m going to use generally weaker moves.   My team is going to be:   Gyrados, Chansey, Pidgeot, Beedrill, Poliwhirl/Poliwrath,  and one other pokemon (I’m not 100% sure but I might use Haunter).     A person online recommended I try to use this team.     Beedrill is super weak in my opinion.     And Chansey has pretty weak stats for attacking but I think I am going to teach Chansey TOXIC.      And I will also not use ICE BEAM or THUNDERBOLT or EARTHQUAKE.

So we shall see if this team makes it harder to get through the game and beat the Elite four.   I think if Twitch can win then it is possible to succeed in many ways, they did obviously have Zapdos but they also had that Venomoth (The dragon slayer).
