Poor grandfather is desperately trying to save an unviable offspring of his lineage.
That picture could be the poster for mental illness. You can see it in his eyes. That young man is mentally disturbed, and has closed himself off to anything that doesn't coddle and celebrate his illness.
These deranged people don't want help. They want to be left to their own devices to be a victim of society and any other slight they can come up with, so that they can wallow in their own self-pity at the absolute worthlessness their life has amounted to.
We slid down a slippery slope, starting sometime in the 60's, with the greatest speed reaching somewhere in the early 2000's and up to today. We allowed our society to slip into decadence and depravity while simultaneously advancing enough as a species that we left a lot of our own with no purpose in life.
We stopped struggling as much as we did in the centuries before, so we started to create false struggles to fill that void.
Our society is sick and in need of healing, badly. The cultural marxism that crawled out of the early 20th century and took root in the latter part, has gone on for way too long. It is an unsustainable ideology that only serves to further denigrate a culture that never wanted it to begin with.
Shoving this shit down everyone's throat will eventually push the sane among us further from sympathy with the sick.

That is one ugly man.
Having woman boobs on a man is clearly worse.
I occasionally remind my grandad of this.
Although he was only a young kid during WW2 he still remembers feeling like it was a war that would rage on forever.
16 years fighting a seemingly never ending supply of jihadi sandrats in Iraq/Afghanistan? He can't fathom it.
"First vote in 15 years...." ...people get heads up with less than a days notice.
I'm sorry but i cant really back this, all this does is repeat the same mistake we made in iraq that created isis. As long as i read the "the repeal of the use of force" as no more military. You cant kill isis or deash with hugs no matter what cuck castro jr says

drpoplove FIFA 18 Academy Part 1 - 5 "Beginner" Tips You Need To Know/Remember
Hey comrades, my FIFA Academy is back! Last year, it was kind of a spontaneous thing I wanted to try and it kind of blew up big, so this year I’m coming in super prepared ahead of time. There will be dozens of lessons this year, and I’m aiming to get them all done by the end of November. Past that, I’ll be chiming in with the odd guide and tutorial as the meta evolves.
As always, each one of these posts has a video component to it, you can find them on my YouTube channel (drpoplove). The next one will be on the new defending mechanics.
Anyway, let’s get started with some “basics” that you need to know. If you’re a long time player, you’ll want to remind yourself with these tips as you enter the new game with a starter team that can’t perform as well as your old TOTS team.
There will be more “advanced” tutorials as the guide progresses. Some will be super long and some will be super short, I’ll try to alternate between the two.
Keep The Ball Moving
You can always spot a FIFA rookie by how they attack. They either rush forward with just a couple of passes, or they take too long to move the ball around.
You should into the habit of constantly passing the ball, even if you’re not fully confident in your attacking abilities.
Moving the ball creates space on the pitch. It forces players to get into new positions, which means it forces your enemy to switch players, cut off new routes, mark various players, etc. The more actions you make the enemy defender take, the more likely they’ll be to make a mistake.
If you’re ever unsure of what to do in the first 2 thirds of the pitch, simply pass the ball to an open player. Even if you pass backwards or sideways, it’s much better than standing still. The longer you take with your ball movement, the easier it is for the enemy to set up and wreck your shit, counter you, and then dab your face into oblivion whilst spinning thirty seven thousand fidget spinners.
Don’t Sprint Unless You Have Space For It Or Because You Have To
Sprinting fucks you up. Not only will your touches be delayed because you push the ball forward, but it’s harder to be accurate with your passing, shooting, and movement. You’ll be a prime target for an easy tackle, you’ll lose the ball, and you’ll cry when the enemy scores an easy goal on you (and dabs).
So don’t sprint unless you have space to sprint into, or if you need to catch up while you’re defending.
Avoid sprinting in through the central areas of the pitch when they’re crowded, especially if you’re player doesn’t have great ball control. It’ll be super easy to take the ball off you, and losing the ball on the run like that will result in a swift counter attack by the enemy.
Sprinting is great when you can take a few touches into space, and this happens most commonly on the wings by default. Sprinting is also great if you spot a solid attacking run from your player and do a through ball to them.
If you can wire your brain to think of sprinting as a luxury mechanic, you’ll become more mobile in attack and less predictable. And then you can be the one dabbing in the end :P
Don’t Blindly Charge Forward
Not every attack leads to a goal, so do your best to resist the urge to get the ball as far up the pitch as possible, in the shortest amount of time.
Unless you’re countering or exploiting a mistake, blindly charging forward is the best way to run out of players and lose possession of the ball. Remember to keep the ball moving, even if it’s laterally or backwards. In fact, sometimes you need to pass backwards to give time and room for other players to move into good attacking positions.
If you find that your attacks are ending quickly with just 3 - 5 passes, you’re probably charging forward too much, with no regard for human life. Although FIFA is much faster than real football, you still need to use your midfielders to move the ball around and control the match.
Speaking of control… that brings us to our next point!
Use Possession And Patience To Control The Game
You’re not guaranteed to win the game if you have more possession, but you sure as hell decrease the likelihood of getting scored on.
If you find that your enemy is better than you or playing a very fast paced style, slow the tempo down and focus on retaining the ball. If you usually make 10 passes in a typical attack, go ahead and make 20. The longer you hold onto the ball in a continuous period, the more antsy the enemy becomes. And if you’ve got ants in your pants, you’re more likely to make a mistake.
Always remember: the enemy cannot score on you if they don’t have the ball. You should consider possession as your first line of defence even.
However, this doesn’t mean you can just pass the ball around your back 4 and expect great results. Far from it. You have to keep the ball moving around the final 2 thirds of the pitch and probe the as much as you can.
If you can get them to lose focus or break down mentally, you’ll have an easy win.
Don’t Spam Tackling, You’ll Get Punished
Mistiming a tackle is one of the easiest ways to get scored on. You should tackle the ball carrier only if you’re 100% certain that you’ll get the ball, or if you need to extend your reach.
Otherwise, simply positioning your player into the path of the attacker is more than enough.
It’s similar to defending in real life in the sense that positioning is usually better than going for a tackle. Guys like Maldini and Ferdinand would rarely make tackles because their positioning was so good.
Make no mistake though, I’m not saying you should avoid tackling altogether. There will be plenty of times you’ll absolutely need to stop a player in or around your box. Just remember, tackle when you’re sure or when there’s no other option.
The next tutorial will cover the new defending in FIFA 18.
Alright, let’s call it a day here with the “basic” tips. I hope they’ve been helpful if you’re new, or have served as a good reminder if you’re a veteran!
The next guide is coming in a day or two. We’ll be covering virtually every aspect of the gameplay, including shooting, free kicks, skill moves, crossing, best formations, custom tactics, shielding, etc. I can’t wait to see how the meta evolves for FIFA 18, the start is always so much fun when you get to experiment with everything.
Thanks for checking out this post, again, the video portion is available on my channel.
If you have any topics you’d want to see covered, let me know in the comments so I can prioritize them. Of course, some topics will have to wait until the full game is out, because we won’t be able to test most things against the CPU in a short demo.
Edit: couple people wondering if you can really do tutorials just based on a demo. Here's my response pasted from the comments:
The demo tutorials are focused around core competencies of gameplay, general tips, and explaining the mechanics. So to answer your question directly- yes. The types of tutorials that you [you as in the person looking for high level meta FUT tips] seem like you might prefer will come later as the meta evolves. You'll notice all of my guides at the start will never make sweeping generalizations or claim to have the "OP" thing.
You forgot to mention to listen to FUT FM .... smh
I'm only allowed to "promote" as much as this post does, gotta stay within the rules. But maybe you can tell me all about this FUT FM, Japes :D

Hey Doc, I've always appreciated your efforts. Bringing your own content to the community, but can you really give tutorials based on a demo?
We all know EA well enough by now that they can still change things before the release
insert video of Madara dropping a second meteor with Kakao's logo superimposed on his face etc
Pretty sure we are about to get a 3rd
sounds like too much work for a scrub like me
its a maintenance of maintenance
List of all current skull trick methods.Re-uploaded because my post was deleted yesterday :/
Currently there are 8 methods of skull tricking other players using "mechanics" or bugs to do so. This post will include all of them & another current bug in the wilderness.
Method #1 Aftershock 1-3 Procs hitting BoBs, Skulled Players, Avatars and pretty much anything around them skulling you.
As the video shows aftershock counts as you engaging in combat with other players/familiars/avatars even though you don't want it to. This was brought up previously and might never get fixed.
Edit this has been hotfixed Mod Pi's Tweet Method #2 "Protector" weekly buff on Avatar causes players to skull on your nearby clanmate who holds the Avatar.
As shown, the avatar takes 5.2% of all damage (including typeless) done to nearby clan mates with this buff. So, whenever you go into combat with someone who has a clan mate nearby with their Avatar you will skull even though they attacked you. Since it works in single-way combat this is also the method that has been heavily abused at Lava strykes for the past year.
Method #3 AoE's that were patched on BoBs still skull on Avatar https://i.imgur.com/OnWs6Ll.gifv This can only be done in multi-way combat so, this isn't something people can do at Lavastrykes but, it works wonders at Revs & Chaos elemental. This will also probably never get patched due to how long it took for it to be fixed previously for BoBs, it was a mechanic not an actual bug so idk, just be aware.
Method #4 Aftershock 1-3 procs skulling you on Avatars Now, this doesn't have a video to show evidence but that's because I'm not 100% sure if this will be the case. Since AoEs were patched not to skull you anymore but aftershock wasn't, if they never patch aftershock it's likely that it'll still skull you on Avatars even if they patch the other AoEs on it.
Method #5 Comp cape animation clickbox and other such items This is essentially just utilizing large clickbox animations to skull other players by making them misclick while running away. This isn't so much a bug as it is just a use of game mechanics but either way I'm including it here for those who aren't aware.
Method #6 Fun weapons & Committed perk Using fun weapons combo'd with the committed perk it's easy to trick someone into thinking you engaged in combat with them and skulled (due to the perk) this is not a bug and shouldn't be treated like one either, it's just a use of game mechanics but once again it's included here so that no one screams in the comments to say I'm hiding it.
Method #7 Untested & Unconfirmed methods that used to work that I have no idea still work or not. Edit this has been patched 6 months ago link
You used to be able to skull yourself on your yak using AoEs and Aftershock procs but that was patched. There was another way to skull on your yak and that's to attack it outside of your attack range of w/e weapon you're holding. This worked ~3 months ago and I saw no update of it being patched so it might still work.
This is still unconfirmed if it works or not though Additionally, there is another way to skull players using AoE which is relatively hard to pull off that used to work around the time that AoEs were supposed to be patched.
The victim is attacked by a player, who is then attacked by another player (so victim is in combat with 1, the guy who attacked is in combat with the other) Now, if the victim uses AoEs it will hit the 2nd guy and skull them.
Other bugs in the wilderness that need to get fixed
Single-way combat bug abusing methods to keep other players off you or to save yourself from dying can be seen constantly at Lava strykes, it can also unintentionally happen but it should still be fixed.
Here's the comment chain linked with an explanation of how it's done Mod Shauny said he'd chase it up over a month ago and I haven't seen anything about it so IDK if it's going to be fixed.
Throwing at QA to check and make bugs for me. Thanks for posting.
Make bugs? No no no that's the opposite of their jobs xD
Maybe it's time to just remove skulls so people always know what they are risking and stop having bugs cause them to skull?
I already am, it's not a big deal though considering I get them with or without posting this sort of thing.
To play Magic...?
Kinda lame that the fnm two-sided tokens have the same art as the tokens in packs.
No Jace ult token? Well, that was a little far-fetched anyway.
In most cases no, although you could argue they just printed a million of copy effect tokens for embalm and eternalize
I love that she saw Ghirapur and thought it was Orazca. The reader can clearly see it's the wrong golden city, but it will drive her character's actions for the rest of the block I'm sure.
"Fuck these guys, get me to the city and I'll fucking worship the sun, the moon, that big scaly bastard over that, fuck it, GET ME OUT OF HERE! DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW MISERABLE IT IS TO HAVE FUR IN THIS CLIMATE?!"
I think it's important to note that Angrath is also a planeswalker, and during their fight becomes aware that Huatli is a planeswalker, and that he immediately wants to team up with her so they can find a way off the plane together.
Huatli (unsparked) returns from a campaign against the Vampires. She wants to be named the once-per-generation Warrior-Poet, but is not yet. She and her cousin Inti are assigned to watch out for pirates. They run into Angrath, who is confirmed to be a Minotaur who uses red-hot chains in combat. She sparks and sees Kaladesh, mistaking it for the Golden City. After escaping Angrath, she is tasked by the Emperor to chase the vision of the Golden City and is promised the title of Warrior-Poet when she finds it. Her magic seems to focus primarily on summoning Dinos.
We've gone too far
This is gross.
He is a loathsome, offensive brute, yet I can't look away...
Also, what the hell? He was traded here. It's not like he left Boston on his own.
"It's everyone else's fault," seems to be Boston's motto.
That's because you'd have to beat the Cavs first to even think about the Warriors.
Thanks for playing.
Imagine how loud his ovation will be when he plays in his first game at the Q.
