Also dating and romantic/sexual relationships can go curl up in the corner and hibernate for years as far as I'm concerned. I don't care if I become a wizard - I'd rather be emotionally and socially prepared for that than rush into it. And actually be friends with the person that shares mutual romantic interest in me.
I've gone on two "dates" with female friends but it was more like we saw each other at the campus restaurant at the same time and decided to eat together.
Honestly, there are some peers on campus that think I'm asexual.

Something something Lyco shares things Lyco doesn't intend to share but eh.
[edit]
Also - Polly: ouch, med school. Ouch. My sister-in-law went through it and my dad advises pre-med and med school majors, so I've heard horror stories.
also writing papers/essays sucks; I never feel like what I've written is good enough to turn in.

This is good. (Or, if your parents don't fit, then your grandparents or whatever).

In a more abstract sense, imagine your 60-minutes presentation is a giant rectangle. If you cut a bit out randomly in an effort to save space, there's a hole in the rectangle which everyone can see, and it looks silly. But if you chop big chunks off both sides it looks like a perfectly good square. Don't give the people you're presenting to enough context for them to realise that there are weaknesses in what you're telling them.

Don't know what kind of stuff you're making a presentation for but what I do:

1.Make a pile out of EVERYTHING I've managed to gather on the subject.
2.Structure it into thematic chunks to give it some semblance of order.
3.Reduce each chunk to a set of bullet points with stuff I deem important (everything you think is important, reduction is for later)
4.Read again and try to reduce a bit more.

5.Magic time: reduce with extreme prejudice - stuff that has ugly words, stuff that's boring, stuff you don't want to talk about, stuff that's hard to explain. Favor bulletpoints with cool stuff. If you find stuff that doesn't fit into this post-apocalyptic situation you made, kick that too.

Soon you'll be actively trying to make your presentation longer.

Not really the issue here as they are academic citizens; time is the issue.
The key is to know the material enough to know what the core of it is, then take that and drop the rest of the finer details that you don't really need to know to grasp the general concept.

Like if you were explaining it to us on BL, what would you say.

Coming up with analogies and ways to summarize a complicated theory in a quick soundbyte is good too.

Okay, I'll try to explain a bit better;

The text I'm supposed to do a seminar about is 56 pages long. I've read it several times and taken out the important parts, which is ~30% of the text.

This still translates to >30 slides worth of Power Point, all full of bulletins, i.e. text. My estimation is that even a fast paced presentation would take about an hour.

So I have to cut this down to roughly 12-15 slides worth of ppt. While still keeping the important stuff and not axing entire sections.

I want to curl up in my bed and cry.

Heres the thing. Without context its literally impossible to give advice. Ive seen a lot of hour long lectures done if five minutes so we could take an early lunch... its all about ignoring everything but the barebones of the topic, going fast, and not actually caring if someone understood what you said.

Hey it's me.
Just don't be one of those people that puts what you're going to say or actual information/charts in your PowerPoint because no one gives a fuck or wants to look at that, it's just a charming backdrop to your speech.

Or maybe all doctors are bad at PowerPoint and only want to look at bad PowerPoints to maintain the bad PowerPoint status quo.

While I was going home from school, I almost got run over by a car, and got mocked by a gaggle of stupid girls for opening my umbrella on a clear night. But I don't feel bad about any of it. Is that normal?

There's no reason you should feel bad for either of those, really.

postulate an FPS game, perhaps along the lines of the more recent Far Crys (Far Cries?); suppose complete creative/mechanical control is vested in thee

here is a query

how do you conceal from the player that they (their character) are the villain without resorting to hallucinations or other overt distortions of actor perception

i.e. you can't cheat like Spec Ops: The Line did

Tough one.

The only way I can think of now is to have major character establishing moments happen offscreen and framed by the protag's inner monologue and reasoning. Maybe use more covert and subliminal imagery and narrative devices to mess with the player while keeping a facade of normalcy for the actual character.

What's the overall goal of the exercise, though? This is so dependent on situation and overall objective that I don't think you could possibly give a generic answer.

The end goal, of course. Your first mission will be generic, then they get worse and worse.

Well, okay, but your opinion is wrong and the fact that you have it demonstrates a total lack of awareness of social mores.

Shitposting in response to something stupid is a valid form of meta-criticism.

I don't know, I only know having to say several times that people should probably not shitpost it up with no apparent reaction gets kind of exhausting.

Getting the thread closed for my part, won't speak for the others.

Considering most of the posts were along the lines of DELETE THIS I think its reasonable to assume that its most people that did shit it up thought something along those lines.

I just don't get the rationale behind that. It was the most activity GD had in quite a while and it had some actual discussion happening. Just avoid it if you don't like it. I can't really go in and warn everybody who strays from the topic because at that point the thread is as good as closed.
