Well, everything happens for a reason. I have no idea any more.

In other, happier, stattier news, I am now 95th on the all time most experienced list, thanks to me Cooping Cesar-Barba. ornery is now my next victim, at only 20 points ahead of me.

Sorry to hear about your job woes...

Import them from Thailand - the games themselves are in Thai, but they come with instructions to translate them. The games are half the price and on eBay, you can buy them with little-to-no postage costs.

Only problem is, that you run into bootlegs more often than not when you shop there. Especially with Nintendo Games. :P

But seriously, why should I buy a game for 60 Euros from amazon, when I can import it from the UK for 20 Pounds?

Hah, why bother censoring your games when people can easily get them from other countries which excludes the censorship noise?

Luckily for all of us, german legislation isn't worth much in other countries. :P


Actually, she declared it later that night. Still, relationship never worked out.
Too bad. I declared my feelings to a girl once, but she already was in a relationship. Then she and her bf broke up, so of course I was hopeful, but they got back together. Took me over a year to get over this. :(
I'm long past that but the fact that it's been the last thing happening to me doesn't really help a lot.

Yeah, I see what you mean. I was lucky enough that the best friend of my best friends gf at that time (does that make any sense? lol) was single as well. And I guess you know how friends can be sometimes... well, turned out that I had a huge interest in that person as well. :)

I might have to ride a coach next week. Should be worth the last minute decision to London next week if everything goes to plan.
You'll be late for The Diamond Jubilee if you go next week. :P
I'm going to bet that I sign back on to the Job Centre on Tuesday.

Too bad. :(

Click the Account settings Cog on your user interface. Then above all of the options to change your signature etc, you can vote on the monthly submissions "You have been invited to vote on the best of the month for May"

Believe it or not, that's actually good. I instigated the end of this relationship, this one was too clingy and kept flip-flopping between "I love you" and "I'm not sure this is going to work". She thought I wasn't over Bex, which I believe is truly not the case, as it's been over a year now and I feel vindicated when after pulling the trigger, she kept coming back with "you've treated me like shit" and "I'm going to end it all"

Can't be doing with emotional blackmail. As Murtaugh says, "I'm too old for this shit."

Well, the copy of Blood Bowl I purchased was fine. I checked it all out and I was given hours of guilt free pumelling of players, in an attempt to look like Americal Football. Wonderful.

Well, it's a free market. Not much they can do about it... except for, stopping with this bullshit of "censoring" games and movies. If the label says: "18 and above" then I want to see the goddamn moive, and not some butchered and censored version.

I really don't know why people can't say "I love you" anymore. I thought it was just a cliché in US sitcoms... but apparantly it also happens in real life. Why are you in a relationship with someone if you don't love that someone? Going out, having fun together, having SEX together... but you cannot say THREE SIMPLE WORDS? I mean, you are already FUCKING this person (literally), but you CANNOT say "I love you", because "it's too fast"? Sorry, but... "I don't want to live on this planet anymore".

There's something fundamentally wrong if you have to say "I love you" just to get a woman into bed. :P

Hey, you remember that I told you I never recieved Red Dead Redemption and that the customs propably took it? Guess what I found in my mail yesterday: A letter from the customs, telling me they have a packet for me. It only took them TWO MONTHS to get back to me. I got the game today after spending ONE FUCKING HOUR at the custom office...

But you don't fall in love with someone by going out with them for a few weeks, it is something that develops as time goes on, you could have fun with that person but is it love? I don't believe it is otherwise I'd have been in love in the past, which I haven't. I think love is a powerful word that shouldn't really be shouted unless you REALLY feel and mean it. I know this sounds stupid, but the person I say it to is the person I always want to be with... I don't want to say it to someone who will leave me or I leave them.

Click the Account settings Cog on your user interface. Then above all of the options to change your signature etc, you can vote on the monthly submissions "You have been invited to vote on the best of the month for May"

thanks for the answer Coop; I fear I have looked for it too late into the month the last two times; and I hope that doesn't stop me from getting the offer :-(


old people say lol; and we still use these }{

Hey, the british BBC censored the shit out of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles... changing the name to "Hero Turtles" and removing Michelangelo's nunchaku.

It really wouldn't surprise me if there was any censorship noise here as well. This country gets worse and worse.

Yep, and all I can say is "FUCK YOU JOB CENTRE!"
Hey, you remember that I told you I never recieved Red Dead Redemption and that the customs propably took it? Guess what I found in my mail yesterday: A letter from the customs, telling me they have a packet for me. It only took them TWO MONTHS to get back to me. I got the game today after spending ONE FUCKING HOUR at the custom office...

So do you still want to go through that procedure again if you're going to buy a game from a UK shop?

I have a simple solution to that. Whack those on the head that clearly don't care for the value of the portal.

Yeah, the idea was that she wasn't the girl for me. On a scale of chocolate bars, One was fruit & nut, the other was whole nut. I'll let you guys do the maths, but this one lasted about 5 weeks, whereas the other was about 5 years...
I can understand that. At least you're still ahead of me here.

She's out there, it's just a case of trial and error at the moment. I think I've got a few leads...

What can I do now? Oh right, allow the Job Centre and scumbag employers to keep walking over me.
Ranting about it never solved anything.
So what shall we do instead? Praise them and kiss their arses for ruining this country? Nice one.

It's not the Job Centre's fault for this - this is down to the Austerity Measures of the Government, as they are unwilling to cut their own pay packets (increase their taxes) and help the rest of society.

We're in this together, indeed.

Well, the copy of Blood Bowl I purchased was fine. I checked it all out and I was given hours of guilt free pumelling of players, in an attempt to look like Americal Football. Wonderful.
Some bootlegs are pretty well made. Not easy to distinguish from the real games.
I wouldn't know. I heard that they are just so cheap over there, because that's where they are made.
Or maybe it's because people in Thailand don't earn as much as people in most european countries. :P

That as well.

It's a lie to get a woman into bed?
There's something fundamentally wrong if you have to say "I love you" just to get a woman into bed. :P
Whenever I said that to a woman it was because I really ment it. Also, the question remains: Why are you in a relationship with someone, if you don't love that someone?

I thought that the love might come back. It didn't. Suffice to say, we are no longer together.

Nice one. Congrats!

Sex is different to love, sex is just sex.

Yeah, but you don't have to be in a relationship to have sex. :P
Maybe I'm just old fashioned, but for me, a relationship can only work if you love the other person. Also, I'm sorry if I offended anyone with my previous rant. It's just that I cannot understand how anyone can say "we are in a relationship" and yet they cannot say "I love you" to each other.

At 6/8/12 07:57 AM, Haggard wrote: Also, the question remains: Why are you in a relationship with someone, if you don't love that someone?
But you don't fall in love with someone by going out with them for a few weeks, it is something that develops as time goes on, you could have fun with that person but is it love?

As I've said, maybe I'm just old fashioned. And I think you can love someone before you go out with that person. Or.. well, maybe it's just a "serious attraction" to said person... I don't know.

I think love is a powerful word that shouldn't really be shouted unless you REALLY feel and mean it.

Good point. Whenever I said "I love you" I did really mean it. I've said it to two girls (the last one I said those words to is now my wife ^^), and while one could argue if I really did love the first girl, since I don't have any feelings for her now whatsoever (might have something to do with the fact, that we don't have had any contact for about 10 years now), I really did mean it, when I said I fell in love with her.

There are indeed some things that minors shouldn't see, I can agree with that. But I will never understand why movies that are rated "18 and above" are also cut...

It was the first time that this happened. And I cannot understand WHY it happened. In the letter, they said: "there's no invoice" and yet, the value of the package was clearly visible on the outside of the package. And I also cannot understand why it took them two months to notify me.

Yeah but even if you're in a relationship, you can still have sex and it not be about love, that relationship is still growing into something that the people involved will have to find. On the subject of love, do you believe in love at first sight?

Well that's one thing, that is why people get together in the first place I think but I won't lie where I have found someones personality attractive, I actually really like personality because of the debate of "looks vs personality", I'd rather go out with someone who has a colourful personality than who is boring and just focus on make-up.

That makes sense, I don't want to make guesses but was the first girl your first girlfriend? A lot of people think that the first girlfriend will be the only and so they say "I love you"?
