  1. There are better ways to deal with rioters and looters than shooting them. A gun is not the only way to deal with things like this. If you start shooting them on sight, some of them will surely retaliate and things just go downhill from there. Doesn't mean I'm ok with them rioting and looting, personally I think they're scum and opportunists of the lowest sort. I just don't agree with shooting them. As it stands, most of these people are getting what's coming to them. Quite aside from custodial sentences, criminal records and hefty fines, Ian Duncan Smith is looking seriously into a petition to have anyone convicted of rioting and looting to be stripped of any benefits they currently claim. One person has already been served with eviction papers in connection with the riots and there are possibly more to come. This hits them where it will hurt most. So if martial law did get brought in for a few days, what's to stop them from extending that few days, just in case it kicks off again?
  2. Never ask for martial law. if it was the chice between martial law and getting my house burned down by looters, i would pick martial law. any law is better than no law. If it was the choice between martial law and getting my house burned down by looters, I'd rather my house burned down. I can live elsewhere and many of my things can be replaced. The justice system would deal with the arsonist. Implementing martial law in the UK is asking for trouble. Also, the riots have stopped. Shooting the rioters will only inflame tensions and make things worse in my view.
  3. Picture 3. Professor Umbridge wait! You have something stuck.......... CANNOT UNSEE!!! Picture 4. Potter! Weasley! Get back to work or I'll confiscate your copies of PlayWizard!
  4. Not too upset about it. I thought about watching that. Guess I'm not missing out on much then. I did start watching The Killing (US remake).
  5. heh, I have only seen people from the US do that. I have a hard time even imagining English people raising their voice (with the exception of football hooligans, but they generally doesn't travel for touristy reasons) Ditto, I've mostly heard Americans do that. I've heard the odd English person do it, but mostly Americans. What really gets on my nerves about Americans is that they expect you to speak like them and use their slang even though they're visiting your country. I had one ask me once to 'speak American'. My response to that was 'Sorry, but this is the way I speak.' What I wanted to say was "For FFS woman, you're in England, we're going to have British accents and there's NO SUCH THING as the American language."
  6. I too prefer subtitles to dubbing, I always get the feeling I'm missing something when it's dubbed. Aside from the fact that it just looks wrong. Plus I get to learn new words in different languages if I listen closely enough, I can figure out what's what. I haven't watched a subtitled movie in the last week or so though. I did watch Full Metal Jacket. 10/10, that film is just class.
  7. It doesn't have to be, he could be forking mad.
  8. You are a Visionary Soul You are a curious person, always in a state of awareness. Connected to all things spiritual, you are very in touch with your soul. You are wise and bright: able to reason and be reasonable. Occasionally, you get quite depressed and have dark feelings. You have great vision and can be very insightful. In fact, you are often profound in a way that surprises yourself. Visionary souls like you can be the best type of friend. You are intuitive, understanding, sympathetic, and a good healer. Souls you are most compatible with: Old Soul and Peacemaker Soul Yeah, that sounds like me!
  9. She may have, I remember tripping over something small a few times.
  10. Why yes, yes I am implying that. You are of course mad as a hatter, but surely you consider that a compliment?
  11. Hobbit stew? Is this something new you've cooked up then Tal?
  12. Four times Locke? You sure you weren't just dreaming about it?
  13. Congrats Talm! I'm sure you'll uphold our Tainty reputation in a most excellent fashion.
