    Hi everyone! I haven't posted here in a while but I was listening to 'Explosions in the Sky' and it reminded me of a thread when Vegeta discussed it so thought I'd come back and say hi. First of all, wow this isn't Halflife2.net any more. I suppose it makes sense, seems even Valve are...

    Starting your own business.

    Since I finished Uni I've been doing go no-where jobs on and off and have found problems getting a proper job. The thing is, I've never really wanted a job, the idea of working for someone else in order to make them money doesn't sit right with me. I've also spent a lot of time over the last...

    Life Without Parole

    I've been reading and thinking a lot about the American prison system recently. All its brutalities, huge sentences and semi-institutionalised rape make for disturbing reading. However, what really disturbs me, even more than the death penalty is the sentence of 'Life Without Parole'. This...

    Belgium has an awesome police force

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vih8YqnEHQ0&feature=related I don't know, but something about this video made me happy. This is how cops should behave, with unquestionable restraint there. Even on a UK cop show, they would have been far more aggressive and rude.
