ELO does not simply touch one--it glorifies one in its holy light. Supplicate yourself before it and entreat it to bless you with its divine love.

In the tough times, I was struck with 1,500 but i never lost my faith in God and now I have been rewarded with almost 4,000 ELO.

~ The language of Elo ~

How does Elo speak?
In the faint flush upon the telltale cheek,
And in the pallor that succeeds it; by
The quivering lid of an averted eye--
The smile that proves the parent to a sigh
Thus doth Elo speak.

How does Elo speak?
By the uneven heart-throbs, and the freak
Of bounding pulses that stand still and ache,
While new emotions, like strange barges, make
Along vein-channels their disturbing course;
Still as the dawn, and with the dawn's swift force--
Thus doth Elo speak.

How does Elo speak?
In the avoidance of that which we seek--
The sudden silence and reserve when near--
The eye that glistens with an unshed tear--
The joy that seems the counterpart of fear,
As the alarm"d heart leaps in the breast,
And knows, and names, and greets its godlike guest--
Thus doth Elo speak.

How does Elo speak?
In the proud spirit suddenly grown meek--
The haughty heart grown humble; in the tender
And unnamed light that floods the world with splendor;
In the resemblance which the fond eyes trace
In all fair things to one beloved face;
In the shy touch of hands that thrill and tremble;
In looks and lips that can no more dissemble--
Thus doth Elo speak.

How does Elo speak?
In the wild words that uttered seem so weak
They shrink ashamed in silence; in the fire
Glance strikes with glance, swift flashing high and higher,
Like lightnings that precede the mighty storm;
In the deep, soulful stillness; in the warm,
Impassioned tide that sweeps through throbbing veins,
Between the shores of keen delights and pains;
In the embrace where madness melts in bliss,
And in the convulsive rapture of a kiss--
Thus doth Elo speak.

Why would I ever waste my time debating someone with an elo score as low as yours? Obviously you have no skill, hence you'd be no challenge and ultimately a waste of time.

Maybe once your elo is equal to mine, I'll respect you.

No if your elo was higher I'd give it the time of day but either way Marcus Aurelias wasn't a nihilist.

Marcus Aurelius was a Stoic and Aristotle's philosophy doesn't necessarily conflict with Stoicism or Nihilism in any major ways. I think you confused the meaning of the quote, and are possibly misinformed about Nihilism.

No it's not. It actually teaches you to be in the moment, which reduces pain and the negative visualization techniques help you to enjoy every moment as if it's your last. In stoicism pain is evil and pleasure is good. It's similar to the middle path taught in Buddhism.

Stoicism would lead the depressed to suicide. It is completely ridiculous.

Not so actually a lot of Stoic techniques are now being utilized as forms of psychotherapy to pull people out of a depressed or suicidal funk.

Debate me on what exactly? You should avoid debating about Stocism. It's a practical philosophy and it consists of a bunch of Truisms such as the quote provided by BOT.
