Councilor Eketek's Guide to Interpersonal Relationships, Part 14C: How to Properly Trash a Friendship

If someone you know well attempts to hurt you, do not let it work. If malice creeps into your relationship, you gotta return the favor. This is the time to fight back!

Step 1: Remove Yourself from the Situation
This is perhaps the hardest part of the plan. At this point, your "friend" revealed her malice and attempted to hurt you. This is the point where you simply pick up your toys and walk away. She might try to woo you back with an apology. Do not not fall for it! She has a parting insult ready to fire at you!

Step 2: Befriend Your Ex-friend's Enemies
Upon completion of step one, you have actually done your "friend" a good favor by removing someone she hates from her life. This is the time to make things interesting. The more hated the enemy, the better you will do in this step. It might be necessary to participate in an event blockade and to have nice statistics to show. It is not completely necessary, but it is highly advisable that you ally with some of her more respectable enemies.

Step 3: Undoing the Damage
If you had a reasonably cordial relationship with your "friend" that had lasted a long time, chances are you aided her considerably. At this point, you need to start un-aiding her as best you can. War and blockades are very useful for this purpose. They work even better if you actually win.

Step 4: Rubbing it In
You may be tempted to truly alienate your "friend's" friends. This is a bad idea. You only need to do that for people who turn against you and take her side once it seems safe to do so. Instead, you should remain courteous with them, and very casually talk about the situation. Once word reaches her majesty, no matter what you are saying, it will probably be misinterpreted, then exaggerated, then represented as somehow breaking "the rules." If she waited until this point to actually de-hearty you, take some time to laugh hysterically and spread the news; that means you did a good job.

At all times, remember that you are the one with the head, so you should be the one having the fun. A little forum trolling, such as is this guide, can also work wonders, but only if you know-how to spel and grammar good.

I'm almost certain this is directed in a precise direction, but I'm not sure where yet...

This is only partially true; I tend to think it's the other way around. As is stated near the end of part 5B of my guide, "if your E-GF wants you to not be a man, then she isn't your E-GF - vendetta must follow."

Re: Councilor Eketek's Guide to Interpersonal Relationships, Part 14C: How to Properly Trash a Friendship

Hey eket you forgot the part on your guide , I believe is 16F

Part 16F of eketek Guide: Create a Guide full with Grudge towards a person go to the forums of The game and Bash her over. That way you will look super Cool and manly .

Then step 16F-B , Find an idiot on your flag that think he is awesome And make him throw an indirect signal with part of the name so everyone can notice who the guide is directed to and everyone else can have a Few LoOoLLlzzzzzz1112233 at her. That way you will feel like you have accomplished something in the game and sucefully stirring up shit on the forums that doesnt need to be bringed up.

Part 17A - Wait for a few other common readers of the forums to defend your beans when you get called out.

Re: Councilor Eketek's Guide to Interpersonal Relationships, Part 14C: How to Properly Trash a Friendship

Unfortunately, I am beset by plagiarists and pilgrims. And even more unfortunately, they are also terrible at sensibility, the grammars, and trolling.

Part 16 of my guide is actually just about cake. You'd know that, if you actually read it. However, since I didn't bother publishing it, you didn't bother reading it either. Part 17 is at least related to beans...

Unfortunately, Eketek is paranoid and won't have anything to do with Amazon. The person who supplied you with the nasty "16F" section probably wants you to eat a brick., which might be hard.

Everybody loves cake.

Re: Morbuzaan! Yay!

This is way too much work. I usually just roll ten 10-sided dice and let that dictate who gets the brunt end of my wrath. This was pretty much the premise of my entire YPP career.

10-35 = Luck is lacking. Troll a longtime friend and see if he is still there when the dust settles.
36-65 = Result is predictable. Find somebody you've always hated and exploit, exploit, exploit.
66-85 = Getting spicy. Find that one girl who will sleep with anybody and reel her in. See how many people get pissed off when she's off the market.
86-95 = Going above expectations. Pretend to do something "for the good of the ocean" and pocket the profits. Don't forget to brag about it on your wiki page.
96-99 = I'm superhuman. Make a flag that implies you are God.
and 100 = Did I just divide by zero? Guess I better blockade myself.

Re: Morbuzaan! Yay!

I believe the odds are significantly higher for the 65-85 category than for any of the others, so you may think you are being random, but you aren't.

Since he said that he's sum up 10 dice, rather than rolling 2 and letting for example a 7 and a 3 mean 73, some results are more staistically probably than the others.

I guess most of us are more faliriar with 6 side dice, so ponder this: You roll two 6 side dice. You can get the following results:

1+1=2
1+2=3
1+3=4
1+4=5
1+5=6
1+6=7

2+1=3
2+2=4
2+3=5
2+4=6
2+5=7
2+6=8

3+1=4
3+2=5
3+3=6
3+4=7
3+5=8
3+6=9

And so on.

All in all, there are 36 possibilities. Out of these, we have:

1 that gives the sum 2
2 that give the sum 3
3 that give the sum 4
4 that give the sum 5
5 that give the sum 6
6 that give the sum 7
5 that give the sum 8
4 that give the sum 9
3 that give the sum 10
2 that give the sum 11
1 that give the sum 12

In other words, the probablity for 2 is 1/36, whereas the probability for 7 is 6/36, or 1/6.

In the same way, if you roll ten 10 side dice, sums that are closer to the middle are, statistically, more likely.

I hope that was clear enough, I'm half asleep... Why do I write things like this when I have lecture tomorrow morning? ><

EDIT: Subby is wrong, though. 55 should be the most probable result, unless I'm overly confused, and it was also included in the largest category, so.. Just scratch my reply if that was what the alt reacted to.

Pretty much. Most rolls end up in the 40 to 60 range, which explains why I never managed to blockade myself.
