Video Game Nerds Reveal How Skill Points Would Work In Real Life

[rebelmouse-image 18361846 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

**Reddit asked all the gamers what was the most conducive way to utilize your skill points. This isn't a cavalier question. It requires acute precision and careful thought. What is the best way to win? Is it a combination of skill or an emphasis on one major ability? The possibilities are endless... apparently. **

DISCIPLINE. FOCUS. DETERMINATION.

Is discipline a skill? If so, +10 discipline. This would be such a huge quality of life improvement for me. It would help me get my weight under control, start working on things when I should, exercise properly, and so on and so on.

POISON IS LETHAL.

[rebelmouse-image 18361848 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd probably just panic and put them all in something useless like poison resistance.

WHEN IN DOUBT... BE A HARRY POTTER!

[rebelmouse-image 18361849 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

+10 Sorcery

Even if that only gets me access to mage hand, I'm a Wizard!

GOOD LUCK AND GOD SPEED.

[rebelmouse-image 18361850 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Luck +10 will take care of everything.

BECAUSE I'M 60!!

[rebelmouse-image 18361851 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

All ten to agility. I'm turning 60 this month.

BRAINS ARE THE KEY!

[rebelmouse-image 18980217 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

+10 to intelligence. I'm dumb as HELL.

I've been repeatedly informed intelligence is not a skill. In that case I'll give +2 to street smarts and +5 to diplomacy and +3 to linguistics to know: Spanish, Mandarin, and french. Unless luck is an option then +10 luck.

BE STEALTHY.

[rebelmouse-image 18980218 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I would spend all of them into sneak and archery.

USE YOUR WORDS.

[rebelmouse-image 18980219 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

All to Charisma. You can talk your way out of so much, or into so much.

MAKE THE POINTS ADD UP.

[rebelmouse-image 18351101 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

+8 CHARISMA

+1 INTELLIGENCE

+1 WISDOM

Only I'd do the wisdom first, to see if the rest still made sense.

USE ALL YOUR ASSETS.

[rebelmouse-image 18980220 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Definitely putting at least one skill point into Sexual tyrannosaurus.

DON'T DOUBT YOUR MUPPET POWER.

[rebelmouse-image 18980221 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

+10 strength to counter my Muppet arms.

JUST KEEP SWIMMING!

[rebelmouse-image 18980222 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

+5 to motivation and +5 to wisdom. My depression and angst keeps me in bed far too much and wisdom is invaluable.

IT'S ALL IN THE INGREDIENTS.

[rebelmouse-image 18980223 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

+50 Happiness

+77 Luck

+42 Charisma

+108 Math skills

WHAT IF I... OR IF I... OR MAYBE...?? I DON'T KNOW!

[rebelmouse-image 18345004 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Knowing myself I would probably spend another 30 years pondering how to get the best value out of them. The irony.

WHAT I SAY GOES.

[rebelmouse-image 18980224 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd add 10 to my debate skills. Every time I'm in a heated debate, whether I'm winning or losing I get so frustrated I cry. Would be nice not to do that.

IT'S ALL IN THE ROMANCE.

[rebelmouse-image 18980225 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

+10 confidence , so I can finally talk to girls.

BUST A MOVE Y'ALL!!

[rebelmouse-image 18980226 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

+10 in dancing skills.

I have this one friend and he did hip-hop/popping/waving etc. for 6/7 years (almost professionally and he's 20yo now) and it just brings so much joy to him and the people around him. Going out with him is the best time you can ever have. The attention he gathers, the happy face he always has on and the looks on the people faces around him are literally priceless. If I would have to describe/choose someone that is truly enjoying life then it's is definitely him!

TAKE IT THE MUSCLE YOU CAN GET!!

[rebelmouse-image 18980227 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

All going to strength.

I'm not a weakling, but since I'm planning to learn a trade additional strength wouldn't hurt.

END. SCENE.

[rebelmouse-image 18980228 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The look of satisfaction turning into horror as he falls to the ground in agony.

DO YOU SPEAK THE LANGUAGE?

[rebelmouse-image 18980229 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Everyone here is listing ability scores.

The real answer is as many as I can into diplomacy, dump the rest into linguistics because each point is one whole language.

It's a teacher's job to leave a lasting impression and set a good example for their students.

With this in mind, particularly in this age of viral videos and social media, teachers have to be very careful of what they say during class hours.

Even so, there are very few teachers who haven't said something they've regretted when teaching a class.

Sometimes to control unruly students, other times when they've simply had enough.

Then too, sometimes teachers leave their students baffled and perplexed by what they say in their classroom, well aware of what they were saying.

Always making for a memorable story.

As a kid, I never raised alarm bells even when I started to feel sick. My mom got stressed easily and was busy taking care of my younger brother, so I never wanted to be a burden by making her take me to the doctor only to find out nothing was wrong.

However, in fifth grade, my ears started to hurt and I knew something was wrong. I told my mom, she took me to the doctor, and I found out I had an ear infection.

Now, an ear infection isn't serious at all, and it was easily treatable. Still, I learned something from that experience: no one knows your body better than you. You know if and when you're sick and how serious it is, even if you don't now exactly what is wrong.

Redditors can corroborate this. Many of them have experienced symptoms that told them they were sick in some way -- usually with a very serious illness -- and are ready to share those experiences.

When in the beginning stages of dating, it's important to know as much as humanly possible.

The element of surprise is no longer a fun aspect of romance.

Ask the small questions. Ask the hard questions.

Interrogate. Grill. Investigate.

Of course, you should do it with a subtle hand instead of an interrogation lamp.

The truth is all we have.

Ask everything.

As much as we always hop for our dating efforts to be worth it and for every relationship to work out, we all know that some relationships are not destined to work out.

But sometimes relationships end for totally valid reasons, and sometimes the reasons are painful, if not devastating.
