Re: Connecticut Elementary School Shooting

I disagree, knives and guns can't be equally as effective at killing if guns do it faster. Firearms are better at killing, as that is what they are primarily designed to do, knives are tools, primarily. They can be used as a lethal weapon, but so can a brick. I wouldn't fancy taking anyone on with ...

Re: shooter shoots 27 people in elmentary school in the u

it's really you who seems to have wild ideas planted in their mind about us rabid capitalist pigdogs. I know I said we'd leave it there but... equally, you seem to have the idea that we're all communists who want to spend money like water. Do you see what I was getting at about divide-and-rule now?...

Re: shooter shoots 27 people in elmentary school in the u

Okay, it's quite obvious that you're not going to budge on your view that anyone who works in the public sector is some wannabe Che Guevara who wants to steal your money and probably spend it on sandals, joss sticks and Guardian subscriptions. So I'd suggest that we call it a night there while thin...

Re: shooter shoots 27 people in elmentary school in the u

I don't think it greys the argument at all, in-fact, it reinforces it. If Min Yongjun had an assault rifle, he would undoubtedly have killed those children rather than injure them. For him to have killed them, and in as many numbers, would have taken a far greater amount of effort and time with jus...

Re: shooter shoots 27 people in elmentary school in the u

Most of the problems you name are issues with the government, not public sector organisations - they got us into two wars, they fiddled money on their expenses, they cocked up the rail deal, they refuse to tighten tax laws. Government are public servants, they're essentially your employer. This one...

Re: shooter shoots 27 people in elmentary school in the u

I don't know where you get your idea of what working in the public sector is like, but I think it's faulty and possibly rooted somewhere in the mid-1970s. We don't all have posters of Neil Kinnock on the wall and call strikes because the tea's gone cold! We get underpaid and overworked and have to ...

Re: shooter shoots 27 people in elmentary school in the u

Do you really think services to help housebound disabled people or to feed and clothe the homeless are signs of a wasteful, decadant public sector? If so, who should provide these services? Or should people just be left to fend for themselves? Missed this bit. So the public sector is broke? How hav...

Re: shooter shoots 27 people in elmentary school in the u

I'm a phlebotomist at York Hospital. Our service is massively under the cosh because we can't afford enough staff or resources to meet the demand. Do you work in the NHS? I do and I don't see many signs of bloating. We're using knackered old equipment because we don't have the money to replace it. ...

Re: shooter shoots 27 people in elmentary school in the u

That's what happens when you have a bloated public sector and too little work. <sarcasm>Vote Labour</sarcasm> This 'bloated public sector' is why I can't find a job as a nurse two years after qualifying, is it? Yeah, because it's oversubscribed. Or does bloated mean something else these days? And w...

Re: Today

Sounds to me like he was caught as part of a sting, since all involved are spread around the country. Speculation however.

I have no idea who this guy is BTW, never listened to their music.

Yeah it's pretty rare, I got mine for £20 but it was on a BIN and I had never seen it listed before then. I was later told it's one of the hardest games to pick up in PAL. Who told you that!?!

Re: shooter shoots 27 people in elmentary school in the u

Add to this that some behavioural issues could actually be terrible parenting - ADHD is oft diagnosed when actually spending time and affection on a child works wonders. This is the truth. My missus has worked in a school, the same school for over 15 years, in the nursery/junior side of it. These d...

Are you guys serious?! God, I don't like their newer stuff but I was a big fan of LostProphets a few years ago. Shocking news.. Don't worry, listening to music won't make you a paedo no matter what The Sun says... When I read about the 1 year old thing I did have a WTF moment, and 2 women up on cha...

Re: shooter shoots 27 people in elmentary school in the u

One person, armed with a gun can exert their will much more effectively than one person with a bat or knife. It is very easy, and quick, to kill with a firearm, at a distance. Armed with a bat or knife requires you to get physically close, be skilled, and relatively strong in order to kill. Even a ...

Re: Bridge Cameras

I wouldn't worry too much about mega-pixels, you should be looking at overall quality and features.
