I'm game for trolling some NL users (I have a list, help me solve this Razz). Well, not really but there is one particular member I particularly dislike among a few others.

I haven't trolled NLers. I made an account there, and never figured out where to post or what to say, so I gave up on that.

I might be banned from certain other chats for spam-trolling. And then there are users who just hate me. <3

Been a mixed few days really. On the brighter side of things, I went Go Karting for the first time in years. My Waitrose branch has a social club and it was the activity for the month so we went up to this proper indoor track in Eastleigh (Near Southampton). The race lasted for 2 and 1/2 hours, where unfortunately my team came 2nd to last (We kept switching round) but was still pretty awesome. Shame we got lost on the way back home xD

Oh god, any of you guys across the pond heard about the riots across England? It started off in Tottenham (Place in London) and it's spreading across the country like wildfire. Anarchists, looters, Arsonists, it's absolute chaos right now. We've even seen people calling for the army to intervene, it's gotten that bad. I've heard that there's been rumblings in my hometown as well throughout today (Small one's though so far), it's very scary.

Why the rioting?

We need rioting in America. Peaceful demonstrations are being broken up all the time on the basis that they "might insight riots." I know how Americans are though these days. "We'll just wait for Obama to get out of office, and it'll get better." Imbeciles.

What happened was that a drug dealer called Mark Duggan was shot in Tottenham on the 6th, which was the straw that broke the camels back. Since that occcured, there were large scale riots across London over 2 days (Buildings burned, shops looted, people mugged, you name it) and yesterday, copycat incidents have begun to spread across the entire country. It's madness as these people aren't protesting over his death, they're just opportunists and anarchists. A guy has actually been arrested in my town for trying to incite violence, I just can't believe it all erupted so quickly.

Financially, it's gonna cost the taxpayer over £100 million and that's bound to grow. Couple that with spending cuts to councils and a lot of public services (Police included), you can understand how bad things seem. You can find out more here - http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/london-riots - or here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_England_riots


And I didn't realise people were so angry in America. I knew thre was discontent buut to openly say you want rioting is another matter.

Firstly, I don't really condone rioting. It's mindless, it hurts innocent and it's generally deconstructive. It's a mere gang bang of opportunists and deviancy; however, every time we hear about another innocent bystander being tackled by an officer "just doing their job," a peaceful demonstration threatened with police force or another family shot up in a botched police raid lead by a bad informant tip... I have to wonder when it'll start.

The real source of discontent in this nation though is that our government is robbing its own citizens of trillions of dollars by pussyfooting around the inevitability of certain consequences to be had with massive debt. Guess whose going to have to pay for the overall irresponsibility of the 10% in this nation that holds any real wealth in the U.S.? The 90% that doesn't. Those who were hoping to remain apathetic are finding themselves displaced (i.e. property tax increases) or at the mercy of good Samaritans while those who stored away a few nuts are struggling to keep jobs that are in constant jeopardy of being cut. Then, there's a larger mass that's growing equally unsure every day. So... yeah... This has been a worsening issue for decades, and by the time we solve our financial crisis, our children will be denied more than some entitlement luxuries that the rich are more worried about.

This guy sums up a real and decent solution w/o the pain and agony of watching our citizens degenerate to mindless rioting: http://www.zerohedge.com/contributed/mad-hell F*ck the bipartisanship. Face the facts.

I don't claim to understand the state of affairs when it comes to American economic issues but I can understand the discontent you're mentioning. It all sounds pretty dire but I guess this is what happens when the Governments act on behalf of the rich and powerful rather than the people who actually put them there.

Alright guys, I'm off to Lanzarote. I leave tomorrow and won't be back until around the 24th.

Depending on how things go, I may try and do some writing for my novel while I'm away, haven't really followed my summer plan that well so being away might help me focus. I've found that being away from the house helps keep me focused so we'll see. Either way, there's a lot of other stuff lined up to do while I'm there so writing would probably be limited to the late evenings.

Anyway, Take care guys. Cool

This is crazy. While I´m on holiday, not only does my hometown of Bournemouth suffer a flash flood but it then also sees a Red Arrow (Royal Air Force plane, or RAF) pilot crash after the airshow festival was going on, what is happening? To top it off, the pilot was reportedly found dead as well, it´s horrible Neutral

RIP John Egging, you died doing what you loved Sad

Wow, you really dodged a bullet back there. I know how that kinda feels man. The worst part is that there is nothing you can do but accept.

You´ve summed it up very well. It does suck but there´s nothing that can be done.

I came across another mention of my hometown in the news again, seems to keep happening. It was a Libyan rebel in Tripòli saying how he´d studied at Bournemouth University and had come back to fight for the cause. Been watching all the news about it, very inspiring scenes from Green Square (Now renamed Marytr square)

Been good thanks Tony. Had about 6 different birthdays to contend with in the space of 8 days, including those for my Mum, Sister, 2 close friends who've turned 18 (I don't remember anything past 11pm of last friday Shocked) and close family friends (Those guys are like little cousins to me). And then there's a wedding on top of that this weekend too, which means I'm going up to a place in Suffolk (That's a 4 hours drive away). So yeah, not a whole lot going on xD

Things calmed down for you yet up there? I heard there was still a lot of trouble

LOL nothing at all eh Terra? Razz

At least it's keeping you busy. ...It is keeping you busy right? Razz

Yeah. Earthquake, Hurricane and Tornado in one week. My gawd it was something else.

It's all aite now, but when we were all in the basement waiting for the Tornado warning to go away, it was trying.
I actually took one for the team and stayed up all night until the Tornado watch (5am) went away.

Then we lost power @ 8:30 am and had it out till 5:30 pm. So that was definitely a week I would not like to repeat XD

Well I'm finally back online~ It was so frustrating trying to get the phone company moving. All this stupid bureaucratic BS with regulations and rules and what-not. It was driving me crazy!

Also late reply to Starlight: yes I do already have my license (well Canadian one) but I did fail my test the first time I took it and had to pay another 100 in lessons and fees. I thankfully managed to pass my driver's test the second time around.

Yeah, it's dying down again sadly. That renewed member drive didn't exactly bring many new people in and those that it did rarely post at all
