Be Your Own Hero

Be Your Own Hero

Hey Facts.

This might be the last post for the site. I am having surgery on 8/11 where they need to remove some skull and expose the brain in order to remove a cancerous tumor I have in my frontal sinus.

I’ve decided instead of doing my usual method of trying to serve up a bunch of posts automatically while I’m out of commission to instead leave with this message.

There are so many things that can happen with the surgery. I might wake up and everything is normal – which of course is what I am hoping for. I might have a stroke. I might lose my personality, I could go into a coma for years, or I might not make it out at all.

In light of this news, I hardly have the desire to do anything else than spend time with my family. Should the surgery be successful you will know – more posts will arrive to the site.

Otherwise, the site will go offline most likely sometime in early September.

So now that all that’s out of the way, let’s move on.

I’ve always loved this image used for this post because of the way the world runs today. I think it’s a message that more of us need to acknowledge. Why must you find power or the definition of success in others? You are the only person that can make changes in your life. You are the one who will reflect on your life at some point and will have to decide if you did everything you wanted.

Why be afraid to try new things? NO ONE GETS OUT ALIVE! We are all going to pass in some manner, so enjoy the things in life that make you happy. Of course, make sure those habits are not at the expense of someone else!

This site has always focused on the feats of something that some fictional character can do. Of course, none of us can instantly teleport to Mars and survive, but we have many powers that can help others. Sometimes the best part of a conversation is just listening to someone without judgement. Have an open mind to consider an opposite point of view, even if it is completely against your personal beliefs. You aren’t doing that to be considerate, but to be an intelligent person who can accurately understand an opposite point of view and why a person would think that way.

My short time on this planet has taught me that life never goes as you planned. People are more courageous than they think they are. Adversity makes you understand exactly what you want out of life. Being nice is not a weakness.

Some people enter into your life only for a certain amount of time. Others will be there for your entire life. Enjoy those who want to spend their time with you – since that clearly means you have something that compels them to do so.

I could go on for hours on other tidbits, but that would just be rambling. Instead, I’ll finish with my favorite quote of all time, from Dr Seuss:

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”

    I thought that tumour was removed during your previous surgery?

    Best of luck with this surgery. We’ll see you on the other side.

  5. Parry Boy August 6, 2014 at 7:21 am -      #5

    Before reading all of this I just saw the preview of it in the homepage I nearly cried. After reading it my heart got turned into molten mush of sorrow and confusion.
    Te bad thing about me is that I think about the worst case scenarios first and then usually go on for it. Sometimes it helps, sometimes people get pissed at me.
    I realized that there is still a lot of hope for this site to continue on and on until we are all techno-sociopaths with bionic arms and wheelchairs.
    But going back to my bad attitude, admin, before saying goodbye to the site, maybe you should go and make the one closest to you the ownership of the site. Maybe you can’t for some reason, but it’s just my opinion.
    Best of luck admin, our prayers be with you, the force may be as well.

    Well guys, it’s been fun. I’ve enjoyed my time on this site, and it has been a huge part of my life. I’ve been on this site for about 2 years now. Since then I’ve been coming on this site almost everyday since then. It has been a fun journey. I’m sad to see that it could very well come to an end, and that this could very well be my last post on here. I will miss you all and I hope maybe one day we could all find another place to debate, talk, and get to know each other once again. This could be goodbye forever. I pray that it isn’t, but in case it is, I hope you all have great lives, and I will miss you all.
    =
    Admin, I hope all goes well for you. I’d like to thank you for making such a great site and doing all you can to keep it going. I’m very sad to hear that you’re going through this. Stay strong through this all. I know you said once that you made this site to impact people’s lives, and just know that you have touched many of our lives with this site. Thank you, best of luck.

    When I went to get my bottom wisdom teeth removed, I was very nervous because I could have lost sensation to my jaw. When I told the person who was going to remove my wisdom teeth that I never had them removed before, he told me with a smile, “I’ve done this many times.” I felt a sudden relief and all my fears left me.

    I’m telling you this, Paul, because I hope that if there is any fear in you, that it will leave you and offer you comfort. These surgeons have done operations like this before. It isn’t new to them, so if you have any doubt or fear, just remember these people are there to help you.

    You also need to return to BankGambling after the surgery. You will return to people who are waiting for you. This isn’t the end. It’s just another chapter in your life where you will persevere. You came through the last challenge. You can do it again. Oh, and you must return to FP so I can have my match posted up.

    We’ll be waiting right here, Paul, supporting you through it all. Now show this tumor who’s boss.

    So much of me wants to say so many different things. This site helped me get through highschool by providing an intellectual avenue whereas the busywork being thrust in my lap was not; while I do not visit as often or comment as often as I would like, it was always nice to know I could hop back on and see what everyone was up to.

    I recently went through two surgeries myself, and I understand to an extent what you are going through. With any surgery, there are no certainties at all-hell, my anesthesiologist fucked up with my IV three times and I almost had to be awake through ear drum surgery. Fun times.

    That said, your family is always what comes first. And as much as I like to think I am your third son from those many drunk night in Vegas with Mr. Teal , I would say you should take care of the people closest to you in real life.

    If (when) the site finally comes back online, we’ll all welcome you with open arms. Until then, you have my prayers for your safety. Good luck and God bless!

    My brother recently went through two surgeries himself.
    Go with your family, so they can be with you after, and help you to come out of the anesthesia.

    If this is in fact the end, well, it’s been a great run.
    It has been an honor to have been a part of the Pile.

    Will the topia stay up? Be a shame to lose contact with everybody here.

  30. Megaraptor18 August 6, 2014 at 3:58 pm -      #30

    I hope we don’t lose Topia either however if that does happen we could always go here.
    ragnarokdebating.proboards.com/

    It was founded by Facts and I use it as a just in case measure if the worse is to come.

    But we won’t need it because Admin will be fine.

    @Everyone

    Clicking my Username is also another option that’s good, it existed long before I joined BankGambling and remember that I want no carnage or bloodshed or mangled communications in it, you get me?

    Another of the 3 Great Havens protected against the catastrophe, sort of a ‘Noah’s Ark times 3’ if you will.

    ___

    Either way, the Grand General of the site will return better-than-before, one way or another and good as new.

    We will await the results here all the same.

  32. Spectral Observer August 6, 2014 at 4:13 pm -      #32

    There have been a lot of hurdles in keeping the site up, and at this point I think a lot of us pilers have been used to the possibility of losing the site.

    Nevertheless you always pulled through, admin, and the site has always survived to fight for months to come. This may be the end of the site, or it may be yet another cancelled apocalypse, but either way, I wish you all the best. It’s been a great 4 or so years spent with this tight-knit community.

    Speaking of topia is there a way to make a section for temporary Matches section in the topia while Admin is out? Maybe along side alternate battle and match aid.

    @Ranger Lowk at #33

    That’s a bold idea for meantime’s sakes, I have a 1-vs-1 duel I had in mind depending on how many of us studied Madoka Magica in terms of worlds(Not just the Main Anime either) in fact, I always wanted to give some people from the Manga Spin-offs a shot.

    ___

    Well, given that more people apparently wind up watching Sword Art Online than they’ve went to study Madoka Magica in general, at least the 1-vs-1 duels feel reasonable.

    I won’t say who’s fighting whom from what world until I get confirming as to who’s read/watched what, got it?

    ___

    As stated, one way or another, the Leader will become a better man by the time he’s out of the hospital.

    “Speaking of topia is there a way to make a section for temporary Matches section in the topia while Admin is out? Maybe along side alternate battle and match aid.”

    We could I would welcome one of the mods doing that. However I have noticed on the site I linked that GuardianAngel1911 posts matches on there. So if anything doing there would be the quicker solution. At this time.

  36. SgCombine August 6, 2014 at 4:45 pm -      #36

    You can also check out the link on my username for all it’s flaws if it helps.

    I’ll even grant everyone inside and outside a welcoming wagon if you like.

    ___

    Either way, how good is everyone at creating vs images by chance?

    @SgCombine

    I just hope we may talk some more sometime if it’s cool, I too want to know when the Leader will feel better, one way or another.

  39. Friendlysociopath August 6, 2014 at 4:51 pm -      #39

    “Either way, how good is everyone at creating vs images by chance?”

    I tend to go more for utility but if you head to ‘RPG 24/7 365’ on Facebook you can see what I typically do.

  40. Commander Cross August 6, 2014 at 5:00 pm -      #40

    @FriendlySociopath at #39

    Then sometime, you’re welcome to click on my username so we may talk more there, by all means.

    ___

    @Everyone

    Has anyone ever heard of Tumblr either?
    Perhaps one of us could forge a blog for those kinds of fights and it’ll also be good as well.

    Also just know that if I wind up suggesting any matches with Valkyrie Cain from the World of Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy, I’m most likely gonna be using images from SpazMuse of Deviantart by all means.
    Considering she’s actually a cousin to the late Admiral GuardianAngel1911, I could put in a good word of consent if you’d like to speak with her.

    ____

    Well, either way until we hear news on the Leader being a better person, the best thing we’ll do in the meantime is to go get it together, folks.

    So what are our game plans in the meantime as we wait?

    We know that in general, killing each other at best won’t solve anything and at worst does jack$hit in making things better and instead makes it bloody worse.

    I offer you the best of luck, Admin. Doctors are very good at what they do, and I’m sure you’ll be fine. If anything unfortunate does come to pass, I want you to know that I’ve had a hell of a time on this site. Honestly, it’s been a blast. This site has certainly shaped how I’ve debated, and I’d like to think it has honed my intellect in some way. It’s also been irritating, aggravating, and infuriating, but that just goes to show that you’re going to run into people who disagree with you. Most of all, though, it’s been fun, and that’s all you can really ask of a website.

    Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst. See ya round.

  44. DivineChaos88 August 6, 2014 at 5:59 pm -      #44

    Well admin, you know that I mainly post on the forums rather than the mainland, but I have two main things to say.
    _______________________________

    First, the whole time here has been quite the trip, full of good and bad moments, but there’s a reason I’ve always stuck around.
    ________________________________

    Second, I will be praying for you up until the day your surgery comes and even for sometime after this all happens. If it is your time, then it will be as it is and if not, then glory to God that you make it through to be on this site for longer. It is in His hands.

    It’s been a good time, my friend. This is either a memory or a good sendoff from those who are the 10%.

  45. Darth Bombad August 6, 2014 at 6:11 pm -      #45

I’ve really enjoyed this site, and should something go wrong that would impede you keeping this site running, I hope you can recover. Hopefully this will merely become a bump in the road for your life, to talk about with friends one day.

    “You are the only person that can make changes in your life. “

    I wish that were true. Hell I’ll open to something right here, I hit a very rough spot, a dark hole I saw no way out of. I almost ended it. But a random plea on the Topia led to my escape and life. So without you, I may have been gone, so thank you for that.
    _
    I’ve done a bunch in my life, loved, lost, traveled, I still have more to do thanks to the above mentioned. I’ll keep doing shit, and so will you.

    Here’s two songs that teach me, and give me hope, as others have given a few.
    _
    30 Seconds To Mars – Closer To The Edge
    www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLqHDhF-O28
    This taught me to push myself to the edge and to keep on going, the world is ours.
    _
    Puscifer – The Humbling River
    www.youtube.com/watch?v=O0YxeTjFn70
    This reinforced the lesson that, no matter how strong I was, I may still need another, and that it was okay to ask for help.

    BankGambling and the Topia have given me so much, so I thank you Paul, from the bottom of my heart, and I know, I shall see you again,

  50. The Amazing Dualgunner August 6, 2014 at 8:34 pm -      #50

    I dunno (or care) if this is at all creepy, but I communicated to my church that you are going through this, and they are all going to be praying for you, Paul.

    As for BankGambling… I hope it continues, but if it doesn’t, you should know that your site has brought me far too many hours of enjoyment and entertainment, and has been one of the few sites I’ve constantly frequented over the last several years. So thank you for all of that. It’s been (and hopefully will continue to be) a blast.

    If you’re reading this, do you have anyone who you can contact to let us know that you’re okay once the surgery is done? I think it would put a lot of us at ease if they knew.

    @the watcher and everyone else: Despite your feelings for him, in real life, Expert is a really good friend of mine. He’ll know my outcome of the surgery and I’m sure he wouldn’t mind posting an update here for all of you.

    Also, Topia hosting is paid in full until November I think, so should that end come, that’s when that goes offline.

    good luck then paul; all surgery has chances of bad things happening, but almost every single one goes according to plan.


    maybe instead of all of you posting sad comments, or songs to cry to, we should instead celebrate what paul has accomplished here. i for one wouldn’t mind flooding this site with necro’ing every single match i have been involved in, just to read back on the past entertainment and good times that paul has allowed me to have. 8/11/14, flood BankGambling with legitimate necros of your favorite matches????……

    I’ve been on this site since ’09 and I’ve seen some good times and some rough times. BankGambling really helped me grow as a person. I just wanted to thank you for the time you dedicated to the site and for helping give me a sense of community. I’ll never forget playing Halo 3 with the fabled Pontifx. I’ll keep you and my thoughts and prayers. Now and after the surgery is definitely the time to be spending with your friends and family :)

  74. Tails111 August 7, 2014 at 6:11 pm -      #74

    Good luck, Admin. I really hope you pull through! I haven’t been visiting as much as I used to, but I really hope for you to be OK.

    regards and all the best to you and every BankGamblingr

    FUCK THE PO-LICE! WEST SIDE, YO!

    +1 for admin to get the ultimate FP award! Also, I never realized that there were so many Christians here in BankGambling.

    Good luck Admin. Hope everything goes well. While I mainly lurk, I still appreciate the site and everything you’ve done for us.

    If you want to count the other Abrahamic Faiths on board, there’s also the likes of Moses(Judaic Representative) or Muhammad(Islamic Representative) if anyone wants to go there, and at least the former was Raised by Sorcerers when one factors how Egyptian Royals were Sorcerers once.

    Both are way more awesome than first glances implied, believe me.

    Though I grant that neither of them to my recollection had an image displayed on BankGambling, Muhammad is understandable, Moses I have no idea why not. :/’

    Great idea. I’m sure that means our swords shall cross again

  86. Commander Cross August 8, 2014 at 8:06 pm -      #86

    @Ninja Xtreme at #83

    I’m saying that Jesus is not the only Savior the Abrahamic Faiths(which include Christian, Jewish and Islamic beliefs.) would offer, is all.

    @Sadot06 on #85

    If you’ve read on Rosario + Vampire, I do believe there is at least one fight worth a necro-ing if you want in.

  87. Darth Bombad August 8, 2014 at 11:00 pm -      #87

    @Ninja Xtreme
    I myself am a proud Native American.
    But i do pray that The Great Creator watches over the Admin.

    Its nice that everyone’s united over this no matter their faith.

    Heavy talk over….@sadot, i’d be down for some Marvel vs DC.
    Or Star Wars vs Star Trek, one of the classics, screw WoT vs SoT!!!.

  88. Commander Cross August 9, 2014 at 1:12 am -      #88

    @Darth Bombad at #87

    Did you consider the idea that a lot of Early Humanity may have arrived from some kind of Space Ship, once?

    I don’t know about the rest of you, but that idea reeks Badassitude to me.

    ___

    Same here and Amen to that, Bombad.
    Amen to that indeed, let’s see what The Lord Senior has in store for us, plan-wise in that case and I do hope it’s fun for all.

    ___

    @Sadot at #85

    Another thing to note:

    I’d have gone with a Dot Hack(.Hack) vs The Mortal Instruments-related fight myself if I could have suggested it* here, but since we’re also on the subject of Necro-ing some fights, a shame we can’t do that on The Cartoon Network Civil War itself.

    I guess one of the group fights I suggested can be the next best thing?

    1.) (I’ll save anything beyond 1-vs-1 duels for later.)

  89. Parry Boy August 9, 2014 at 1:54 am -      #89

    @Commander Cross
    A part 2 of the CN Civil war would drastically change everything, there a lot of new shows coming in.
    Anyways, a Nick one could be good as well.
    ====================
    @admin
    Bring in another Ben 10 or Ratchet and Clank match! I’m super pumped!

  90. Commander Cross August 9, 2014 at 2:06 am -      #90

    @Parry Boy at #89

    Next best thing we got to that’s gotta be Chemical-X enhanced Chickenball Martial Arts Armies that Jump Good vs. Adventure Time Magic Knight Armies that studied Death Kwon Do and got the next best thing to Chemical X for added measure.

    A Nick Civil War has potential and promise no doubt.

    The Grand General of the Site walking out a better man will be according to plan, I have foreseen it.

    ____

    I wanna see even so much as a Disney Civil War next, if Cartoon Network and Nick are supposed to have Civil Wars, only fair that The Ancestor of Anime gets hit with it, too!

  92. PrimusxPilus August 9, 2014 at 12:10 pm -      #92

    Admin, this site has evolved, from the classic black and orange to what we have now, star rating to blank slate, etc. Things have come and gone, but Admin is eternal, and will continue to be. You will come home to your virtual family just fine. Godspeed and God bless.

    I really wanted to get admin a big robotech poster, but I can’t find anything that isn’t on ebay :*(

  99. TheSorrow August 9, 2014 at 10:35 pm -      #99

    It would be so strange to see this site go away, after so many years. It’s nothing you really think about, until it’s too late. Same with loved and acquaintances, a piece of your life just fades away, but that doesn’t mean that should dwell on what we lost. It’s just as Admin says, just be happy at what you gained from it all.

  100. erickyboo August 9, 2014 at 11:46 pm -      #100

    Surgery is on the 11th?
    “I really wanted to get admin a big robotech poster, but I can’t find anything that isn’t on ebay :*(”
    I have an idea for tomorrow…
