Are you spending points in your class abilities? What class are you playing? Difficulty has a tendency to level off once you start to get decent gear and enough skill points. You say you only have training in pistols, sounds like you might be an adept, engineer, or sentinel. In any case you need to ...

While circle kick is not a monk skill per ce, you need advanced unarmed strike and +3 to attack and +15 dex to get it. Maybe at level 8 you don't have the prerequisites yet. I seem to remember having it by that stage of the game though. It in the guide under "general feats"

If you have not yet bought circle kick as a feat, get it as soon as possible. That free attack it gives you is a godsend when you are surrounded. monks can attack up to 5 times a round, so there is a near certainty of it triggering once per round. Don't neglect your "sense skills". Getting 2 shotted...

Sloths have never been a cute animal to me. I actually think they are a bit nasty what with the green hair they grow as camouflage and all. But yeah, whoever shot that video did the seemingly impossible and made them impossibly cute. Fact is I should feel a bit of kinship with them for right now. I ...

I only pick up tidbits here and there about the lunacy of how the laws function in other countries. Heck it's silly enough around here. I just hope we don't start incarcerating as many people up here for silly "crimes" as are in the US. At $100,000+/head/year that can get mighty expensive mighty qui...

Damn. you know metal has been around just long enough for us to soon see more giants of the genre fall. Don't really want to think about it right now.

One more thing, many prisons are private in our country, so there are incentives to incarcerating more and more people (because it makes money), and so we actually have an overcrowding problem. Prisoners that are easier to maintain in these hotel-jails are preferred, coupled with Regan's idiotic "w...

Yeah, I should point out that I am strongly in favour of life meaning life in terms of sentencing; in this country 'Life imprisonment' usually means between 5 and 25 years, a complete farce! I'm with you there. The reason I cannot come to a clear conclusion on the issue myself is because there is n...

endboss is right, celibacy can give people some strange ideas, like gays making priests into pedophiles, or dry wafers and wine magically turning into 2000-year-old zombie Jew flesh so people can eat it - everyone knows a good red deserves better.

I doubt there is any objective way to judge the fairness of the trial that happened there. The only unfair trial in my opinion is one where justice is not served. lots of those around here where wealth buys a long drawn out trial with appeal after appeal and never sees the inside of a cell. politici...

That was fine if you were a noble and not a serf. For my part I kind of like having central heat that does not come from the center of a live pig in winter. Not to mention something other than dirt for a floor. ;)

Well the charge could mean up to 20 years. The hacking charge was relatively minor by comparison to the obstruction of justice. He should be punished, but as a likely first time offender he will likely not get the book thrown at him. Sidenote, he did the US a public service by exposing the fact that...
