Thursday, March 31st, 2005

And here we have another politician jumping on the ‘GTA is destroying our society’ bandwagon… this time its Hillary Clinton. (more…)

Springer Show Offends Christians

Thursday, March 31st, 2005

I came across this on the beebs news site. The gist of the article is how the beebs governors decided not to uphold complaints received about the Jerry Springer musical, but what bothers me most is the increasing number of attempts to censor television, radio, the stage and other entertainment mediums on religious grounds.

Airport Too Noisey? Races To Noisey At The Local Circuit?

Tuesday, March 29th, 2005

I feel like I’m becoming a really whingey old woman, but people in this country are (I’d love to swear) unbelievable. What is wrong with you people??? Don’t you have any common sense? Don’t read planning applications? Don’t consider whats around you when you purchase your homes?

Lets Blame Someone Else

Friday, March 4th, 2005

Heres the scenario… I play Grand Theft Auto and I love it. Now, I get busted for driving a stolen car and I get taken into the Police Station. Inside I grab a gun from an officer and shoot three people dead. Then, I get arrested (if I’m lucky) or shot dead (if I’m not). At this point, I say “Life is a video game. You’ve got to die sometime”. In the meantime, the families of two of the three people who were shot hire some dumbass lawyer with a reputation for claiming that video games make kids do these things (you know who you are) who proceeds to sue the shops who sold the games and the publishers of said games. And the basis for this claim… “they are all responsible for ‘teaching’ me how to kill” (more…)

Unavoidable first post

Friday, March 4th, 2005

It would be so great if somehow when you installed something like this, or Nuke that the system could pick your brain and create a first post for you.
