Hearing the phrase "On Ebay" from somebody working in CashConverters,
Yeah SF2t on SNES is worth £20 loose, same with a loose Zelda on Gameboy

The stupid slapper that nearly ran me over today.
If you have dogs (well rats) in your car, dont let them be climbing all over your steering wheel, dash board.

Least it's in the bowl. Took my 4 year old son to the beach the other day and he needed the toilet so I dashed him to the only one near by. On the cubicle walls some smack rat I'm guessing decided it would be fun to wipe poo all over the walls :evil: my god it was awful.

Mmmmmm - how lovely. On the subject of public toilets - a lot of the times they are quite badly maintained. What's with the missing door locks on the the toilet cubicles?

I once saw a vagrant use the urinal then wash and dry his hands - then get this - he decided to puke on the floor. WTF?

Needing time to slow down when at work so I can get all my jobs done but also wanting it to speed up so that I go home. Gah.

The news. STILL blaming games for everything bad that happens in the world :evil: They just had a report on the tragic story of the teacher being murdered at school. They then said they couldn't name him, but here is his facebook page, then mentioned he listened to rock bands and played computer games, as though that's the problem. It was annoying and also funny at the same time, as they showed the picture on his site of Crash Bandicoot, that horrific murder slasher 18 certificate game :lol:

Why not mention that he goes to a Catholic school and may have been corrupted by the bible, with all the murder and killing in it? That's worse than Crash Bandicoot, though obviously not the cause either. I'd blame the parents, but mainly him, since he decided to repeatedly stab her.

this^^
omg pressing buttons on a controller and red stuff comes out!!!!!!!!!!1!!!!!!!111

and also people blaming metal bands and saying "it wreck the brain"

like really

http://www.theguardian.com/music/musicb ... rebrainier

and also people thinking metal bands are dumb, they are genuine people who mostly went from rags to riches (motorhead being one example - "worst band ever" to no.1 in 6 years) metal is actually quite hard to play.

just my 2 cents ;)

He must of been one incredibly angry kid to do what he did. It's real sad to think that a kid needed to stab someone. Never mind that it was a teacher who has nothing but his best interest at heart. Before I even heard who it was I stupidly presumed it must of been a male teacher who had been killed not a old woman. Just had images of a male teacher telling him off and making him explode to do what he did.

Well blaming the parents without knowing any real evidence about this is just as over the top as blaming computer games/rock music.

As Chris Rock said what happened to just plain ole 'being crazy' ! Who knows what to blame though, i'm sure scientists have been trying to find out for years, hormones, was it his upbringing, Tom and Jerry cartoons ? Reading about this kid he was one of these 'loner' type ones at school who the other kids thought was odd (heard the same thing about past child killers at school), he played violent computer games so i'm sure we'll get a month of hearing how evil GTA/Dark Souls is etc.

Very very sad situation though

It's why I don't even watch the news anymore. All sensationalist, exaggerated and reported in a way that either sells papers or generates fear.

The selfishness/childishness of drug dealers - as in, they see it as acceptable to burn down the salon that a rival's mum has worked her arse off to keep going, whilst also endangering the lives of the other people who live in the building, and rendering a disabled woman's flat unsafe to live in, plus destroying a lot of stock in the charity shop next door.
