Maplestory Guide – Pianus

A favourite of most Paladins out there I’m sure. With 4th job Pianus a total joke now, a decent (full) party can expect to take one down in 5 minutes easily. Pianus can be found at the bottom of Aqua Dungeon, where it spawns every 24 (Right) to 36 (Left) hours.

The left Pianus has 24,000,000HP while the right Pianus has 30,000,000HP

Minimum HP: 3,800 (Left), 4,900. (Right) You might be able to try earlier though it’ll be risky.

Boss info: Pretty simple really, all you need is the minimum HP and at least one person who can do 10,000+ every hit. (Dark Knights and Heroes are excellent for this) The reason for this is because Pianus summons bombs which will explode when their HP is between 1 and 5,000, dealing around 10,000 damage to anyone nearby, ouch. Not nearly as dangerous as it sounds though.

Aside from that, Pianus has all the typical attacks you’d expect: a big beam dealing 3,700~ (left) or 4,700~ (right), avoidable 10t weights that drop down dealing the same damage as the beam and of course, HP 1/MP 1. It also casts physical and magic immunity. (far too frequently if you ask me…) It can also dispel and lock skills, though the right side will only do this if someone is standing behind it (in it). If you’ve been wondering what I mean by left and right, two Pianus (Pianii?) can spawn in the same map, obviously on the left and right side. Though similar, they have several differences: The left one has lower attack, hp and defence. But dispels and locks skills far far more often. It also gives around 300,000 less experience than the right one.

Tell Me Who Your Friends Are and I Will Tell You Who You Are

Friendship for many, to include scholarly individuals, is actually some sort of an informal category without specific limitations or boundaries. Like when you say a person is a friend, you do not say that he is your friend in school, or he is your friend in the office or a friend in any category of undertaking. Usually, friendship would indicate mutual relationship that you give and take for each other with a time span that will always depend on each party concerned.

The degree of friendship would usually be dependent on the circumstances that resulted to such relationship. The degree of friendship with a classmate at school will be different than the degree of friendship with a neighbor friend. Even in work, the ties of friendship a person has with his co-employees in an office work will be different from the ties of friendship between soldiers. In most cases, the degree of dependency among one another in a particular undertaking, would measure the degree of friendship among them.

Friendship for that matter takes on many forms like casual friends whom you may consider already as friends even when you have just meet them once, twice or thrice in a gathering, long time friends, people you have known since you were young like your neighbors, and best friends like your close in barkadas or groups that you are always with and shares with you whatever they have and you, whatever you have, in return. These sharing between best of friends are not only limited to material things but also would include spiritual and emotional sharing like keeping and advising your friends in keeping up with their faith and other emotional problems that they have. These sharing of all aspects of your daily life, sometimes you use friendship sms text messages, lovely friendship sms that will cause to deepen the friendship between your groups of friends.

There are, however, a lot of people who uses friendship as a tool for self advantage. The sad thing about these kinds of people would be the fact that once they have gained their purpose because of the friendship that they were able to establish they just as suddenly junk the friends that helped them in the first place. These people are those that can be considered as friendship for advantage gals and guys. There are also those who will only make friends with people who share with them their passion.

These people are those that we can categorize as people who look for selective friendship. People in this category can be persons who are into different hobbies or undertakings that they value so much that once they know you have the same kind of aspiration would then try to consider you as a friend in such kind of an undertaking. For example, a person with a passion for horses can easily make friends with a person in the horse breeding business. And if you are a SCUBA enthusiast, you can make friends easily with an underwater photographer once you chanced to meet each other.

These kinds of friendship actually, are not only related to hobbies like playing with your mobile phone, sending sms messages, sharing love text and other special skills that a person has to make friends with other persons sharing with him interest in the same field of endeavor. These can also be true to even negative habits such as drinking, gambling and womanizing. This is precisely why we have this saying, “Tell me who your friends are and I will tell you who you are.”

Football Betting Picks

Predicting the future has always been an intriguing subject for human beings. There were a lot of prophets since the beginning of age. Because of their prophecies they managed to became immortal and be forever present in out minds

But not everyone is a psychic, and even if one was to have psychic powers, we all saw in movies, you can’t use your powers for personal benefit. I’ve personally always loved this explanation….

In the last decade people concentrated more on predicting the future based on what they know: looking at the past to understand the present and predict the future.

I guess it’s the same with bettors or tipsters.

Another reason of why there are so many bettors out there may be their love for the game. They grew up watching football, watching their favourite team, they grew up playing football in the school yard and calling themselves Maradona, Pele, Gascoigne or Eusebio.

There are a lot of factors to be taken in consideration before placing your bets, some more important than others, but if you want to be a constant winner you’ll have to take all of them in consideration: form, team news, motivation, tactics, expectations,fans opinions, referee, weather.

Every single one of these factors plays its role in the final outcome of the game. The problem is that nobody managed to put together an algorithm for everybody to see the percentage that each factors has, that’s why all factors have to be studied with patience and meticulously.

Superficiality will always be your enemy in this field, and I believe in life in general.

One should treat their bets exactly how he/she treats her job. As it represents a source of income, it should be seen like an investment, but always when investing you have to take out money upfront, that’s why a lot of responsibility is needed.

People’s brain represents a mystery in many parts of it.

It is said that some kind of substance is produced when a person is gambling or betting. Many scientists have studied that aspect but no clear conclusions have been drawn.

What’s known for sure is that after a bet is lost most of us tend to place the following bet thinking at the one we lost before. That’s a mistake from the start as it will influence our judgment and we will select our bets mostly based on odds, thinking what odd we need in order to get back what we lost and still have some profit.

It’s a mistake that all bettors do sooner or later, without exception, kind of like, you are not a driver until you’ve bumped your car.

Having a strong psychic is an essential quality in this field or else betting will became gambling…. Leave the past bets behind and concentrate fully on the future ones, because if you’re in loss, only this way you will be able to be in profit again.

So you see there are a lot of dangers this activity implies, lots of work and efforts, lots of research but more important lots of seriousness and continuity. This activity is no joke and should be treated with the proper respect, that’s why experts advice is always welcome, let people with experience in the industry do the job for you.

With lots of years behind, with knowledge and enough time to make the research work. This is one of the only ways you won’t fail.

Online Poker Vs the Planet of the Apes

Surely at one time or another everyone has witnessed a group of bourgeois canines playing anthropomorphic poker on one or the other of Cassius Coolidge’s series of paintings. But the man’s whimsical imagination wasn’t quite as far removed from reality as one might like to think. Perhaps you believe that chips and chimps do not go well together and that it sounds like something out of a Douglas Adams book, but if you ever played online against someone who had a great-ape photo for his icon, don’t be so sure it was just the excellent players irritating sense of online humor – you just may have lost a few thousand or more to an actual primate. If you thought using a stick to crack a walnut or a skull was the best an ape could do, in this early twenty-first century, when the world is on the verge of a Technological Singularity (think what an “intelligence explosion” can do to PC and online games), you, man or woman, had better think again.

Primate Programming Inc has established that great apes (sharing 97% of their DNA with us) make efficient IT specialists. Individuals are employed by PPI, undergo training and offer their services to PPI clients for peanuts. A later PPI discovery was that the same employees, for purposes of pastime or secondary sources of income, are capable of being taught to play online poker, evincing particular talent for no-limit Texas Hold’em.

If you still think this is a joke, please search “primate programming inc” on google. .

They favor no-limit poker, PPI informs us, because of their proclivity for playful (or half-playful) displays of aggression. In other words, the apes are naturally great at aggressive bluffing. In no-limit games, a player has the possibility to bet all they have at any time – this requires risky, aggressive play and the ability to bluff.

The anonymity of online games helps. There is no way to identify a player as non-human and human players confess losing thousands of dollars (to players later officially identified) when someone who played the early rounds with near to nothing and consistently displayed weak cards would suddenly “bet big”, have everyone call, and then – probably chattering with glee and typing with his/her toes – reveal aces.

The primate-players’ initial employment as computer programmers is not coincidental. It seems, according to PPI, that they independently develop programs which aide them during games. The nature of these programs has not yet been revealed. One thing is sure: “DrDestructo” and “ThePikerMan” could have a full-time professional (online) poker career, if only they wanted to. Outside the laboratory/office, they may neglect their training and prefer the old game of hurtling themselves at the bars of zoo cages and then grin their monkey grin at the startled adults and children. Still, as long as they are paid and fed regular, with bonuses, and are allowed to mate, David Sklansky and Ed Miller may need to update their No-limit Hold’em books in the nearest future.

For the past several years, Norm McAuliffe, a Yale biology Phd and the scientist heading the research team behind the discovery of programmer apes, has been investing money and effort into a Primate Poker Inc, “hiring” profitable ape-players to play for money in rotating shifts, 24 hours a day. He has been quoted as saying: “I’m completely committed to this business model. It is reasonable to say I am “all in”.”
