Mr Vile.

There was a teacher at my school called this. There was also a teacher called Roger Gay.

Mr K Vile? That is who I was dealing with.

There was a handyman my landlord used called Roger Organ.

America is probably the most diverse nation; a country made up of immigrants and their offspring (and a handfull of Native Americans). I don't think you can easily pigeonhole a country that has so much history from other countries all mixed together.

Pippin, please enlighten us as to the MA theories, I find it all quite interesting.

Alex-Rah, what is this test?

The Bechdel test basically tests films on 3 parameters:

1. It has to have at least two [named] women in it
2. Who talk to each other
3. Talk about something besides a man

You'd be amazed (or possibly not) at how few films pass even just the first of these. Here is a link to the site: http://bechdeltest.com/

I read the wiki on this and the problem is: what does 'talking about a man' mean?
369  General / The Forum / Re: GAMERS! on: June 13, 2013, 11:07:20
I'm interested in it. It is by Naughty Dog and the Uncharted games look good and play well, although the last one had too many cut scenes which broke the action. Reviews are very positive about Last of Us (go to Pink Planet Bedmo if you need it today Wink ) but I've seen on wiki Polygon's review which says : "forcing players to constantly fight off waves of enemies in order to progress, which the reviewer found to be jarring in comparison to the rest of the game. The reviewer also described the combat as "messy" and that the player was constantly forced to restart from checkpoints." That is slightly off putting as I'm kind off sick of zombie games, but the rest of the aspects of most reviews seem to be very positive.

I'll check it when I'm done with AC3 (and Deadly Preminition).

Inquest ongoing into this now.


They went to the house at 07:00 GMT on 15 March 2011 to arrest the singer and search the premises in Hillbury Road as part of an inquiry into allegations of conspiring to import class A drugs into the UK, Mr Travers said.

At the time of his death, Mr Emmanuel was awaiting trial at Croydon Crown Court along with two co-defendants over allegations of "being concerned" in the supply of a Class A drug, to which he had pleaded not guilty.

Mr Travers told the jury they would hear from the police officer, who would be named only as Witness Two, that when the officers were coming to the end of the search, Mr Emmanuel very suddenly and without warning stood up.

Witness Two realised for the first time that Mr Emmanuel had a large kitchen knife in his hand.

"The officer says that he shouted out 'knife' so as to warn his colleagues, at which point, Mr Emmanuel, he says, held out his arm and screamed at Witness Two 'Do you want some of this?'

"Witness Two will tell you that Mr Emmanuel's face and body language had completely changed, he became angry and was screaming.

"He will tell you that he, Mr Emmanuel, then held the knife with both hands and plunged it into his own chest."

No PCIe though which makes it pretty much a larger Mac Mini rather than a Mac Pro. Not sure where the world of PCIe is going though at the moment. TB2 will allow a chassis (like Magma and Sonnet) to be added, but they cost about 300 upwards which gets rid of the elegance and adds to the cost.

It does look quite different though, although it is a touch pedal bin like.

I'll stick with my massive silver tower Mac Pro for the mean time as I have a PCI card I need.

Eh? This statement makes no sense. If you're not into "Fancy lighting", then why should you care about your graphics card?

Cheap laptops are a few hundred quid now, GOG.com has some absolutely blinding classics for pennies, and the number of outstanding 'indie' games coming out needs to be seen to be believed. And as Xbox now seems to want to kill of that whole scene, there's never been a better time to get into it. Honestly, you won't regret it.

It was an example that PC games all too often rely on up-to-date tech to get the most out of them, whereas a console is standardised and therefore the developers know what the limits are. I know that irritates PC gamers.

Laptop? No thanks. I got one for live music work recently, as it is an avenue I'm looking into, but I've never understood the desire to own a laptop for anything other than portable use.
375  General / The Forum / Re: GAMERS! on: June 12, 2013, 08:47:42
Fancy lighting etc isn't that big a draw for me, I just want well thought out challenging games, not Demon Souls type of challenge, that is just stupid, but intriguing and with a good story line. Too many games have repetitive actions (like Far Cry 3) or corridor shooters which don't require much thought. What happened to puzzles and action?

I don't need a PC for gaming as I play about 5 hours a week and a thousand pound rig would be a total waste on me. Consoles provided immediacy and a stable platform without the worry that I'm not getting the most out of the game because the graphics card is a year old.
376  General / The Forum / Re: Recommend Me A Disturbing Movie... on: June 11, 2013, 16:39:31
I stay away from most of the slasher genre for this very reason, seems to be a lot of torturing women and glorifying violence towards them... from what I hear Martyrs is the very worst for this.

Or are they about female empowerment?


Plus if you haven't watched the films, it seems a little prejudical to determine the motives of the movie.

382  General / The Forum / Re: card fraud on: June 07, 2013, 15:38:17
I can't recall if it was 86 or 84 that I collected. I moved south in 86 (the end of) but I can't recall liking football when I moved down here. I very much doubt I've got my album any more, actually I had two because I had too many doubles. I used to love getting the team badge with the reflective 'holographic' backing, which I think they replaced with just plain silver the year after and my interest wained.

394  General / The Forum / Re: Weed on: May 30, 2013, 12:05:44
I still smoke, but have cut down to the point of not smoking as much, almost nothing. I've smoked for 19 years and I don't suffer from the issues people have reported here or the general stoner stereotype. I find that recently that my body doesn't like it, my mind is barely effected by it and I'd rather have a mellower high, but that isn't really available as most growers seem to want to have only the strongest.

I've never had a problem with paranoia, networking or creativity and some of my most creative and socially involved parts of my life were when I smoked heavily.

I've had periods of not smoking and it has zero effect on how my life is. I suspect most of the associated effects come from social expectation, associates and the age you are.

So you think the red hands version is the original and then someone doctored it to make the hands look clean. Interesting.

I looked at the itv (red hands) video again, this time by playing and pausing repeatedly at the smallest intervals possible (so not frame by frame, but as close as i could) and the hands change colour, there are some gestures he makes which show the palm to be clear then it flashes purpley red again.

Maybe both versions have been doctored as the red hands video is more Ribena coloured than blood coloured. So perhaps neither versions are reliable.

More violet crime, than violent crime.

Anyway I don't want to start going too deep into the peculiarities of this case, like i did with the Boston one, and start talking about how the guy isnt from a muslim background, why women were just sauntering past if his hands were dripping with blood, why there's no blood spatter splattered on his jacket, how there is no blood visible on or around the body of the decapitated victim, or how the event was beamed around the world as a "terrorist attack" within minutes of it happening, or how the event creates a public reaction that increases support for military etc.....

All i am saying is that there are two versions of the same footage and that seems very strange to me,.

You do realise that different cameras will pick up colour differently? Is his jacket the same colour in each of those pictures? Is his skin colour the same?

I have no desire to go find any pictures, but I recall seeing a huge amount of liquid in front of the crashed car. Also do you think blood would show up on a dark jacket?

You have a desire to find something where there is nothing.

An interesting read. The summary at the end is wrong though

going out in those days was about unity and euphoria rather than wearing T-shirts that define your pecs and trying to compete in some kind of Moet-pissing competition.

There was plenty of machismo bollocks as well, thankfully not in Lakota who did their best to keep the beer boys out, but it was evident in other places.
