  1. Some people are like Slinkies - they serve no useful purpose, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them downstairs.

  2. That........Is........Epic........!
  3. Enjoy ! #1 IN Detroit, a 41-year-old man got stuck and drowned in two feet of water after squeezing head first through an 18-inch-wide sewer grate to retrieve his car keys. #2 A 49-year-old San Francisco stockbroker, who "totally zoned" when he accidentally jogged off a 100-foot-high cliff on his daily run. #3 Buxton, NC: A man died on a beach when an 8-foot-deep hole he had dug into the sand caved in as he sat inside it. Beach-goers said Daniel Jones, 21, dug the hole for fun, or protection from the wind, and had been sitting in a beach chair at the bottom Thursday afternoon when it collapsed, burying him beneath 5 feet of sand. People on the beach on the outer banks, used their hands and shovels, trying to claw their way to Jones but could not reach him. It took rescue workers using heavy equipment almost an hour to free him while about 200 people looked on. Jones was pronounced dead at a hospital. #4 Santiago Alvarado, 24, was killed in Lompoc, CA, as he fell face-first through the ceiling of a bicycle shop he was burglarizing. Death was caused when the long flashlight he had placed in his mouth (to keep his hands free) rammed into the base of his skull as he hit the floor. #5 Sylvester Briddell, Jr., 26, was killed in Selbyville, Del, as he won a bet with friends who said he would not put a revolver loaded with four bullets into his mouth and pull the trigger. HONORABLE MENTION: #6 Paul Stiller, 47, was hospitalized in Andover township, NJ, and his wife Bonnie was also injured, when a quarter-stick of dynamite blew up in their car. While driving around 2 AM, the bored couple lit the dynamite and tried to toss it out the window to see what would happen, but apparently failed to notice the window was closed. RUNNER UP: #7 TACOMA, WA Kerry Bingham had been drinking with several friends when one of them said they knew a person who had bungee-jumped from the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in the middle of traffic. The conversation grew more heated and at least 10 men trooped along the walkway of the bridge at 4:30AM. Upon arrival at the midpoint of the bridge they discovered that no one had brought a bungee rope. Bingham, who had continued drinking, volunteered and pointed out that a coil of lineman's cable lay nearby. One end of the cable was secured around Bingham's leg and the other end was tied to the bridge. His fall lasted 40 feet before the cable tightened and tore his foot off at the ankle. He miraculously survived his fall into the icy river water and was rescued by two nearby fishermen. "All I can say" said Bingham, "is that God was watching out for on that night. There's just no other explanation for it." Bingham's foot was never located. AND THE WINNER: #8 Overzealous zookeeper Friedrich Riesfeldt (Paderborn, Germany) fed his constipated elephant Stefan 22 doses of animal laxative and more than a bushel of berries, figs and prunes before the plugged-up pachyderm finally let it fly, and suffocated the keeper under 200 pounds of poop! Investigators say ill-fated Friedrich, 46, was attempting to give the ailing elephant an olive oil enema when the relieved beast unloaded on him. "The sheer force of the elephant's unexpected defecation knocked Mr. Riesfeldt to the ground, where he struck his head on a rock and lay unconscious as the elephant continued to evacuate his bowels on top of him" said flabbergasted Paderborn police detective Erik Dern. "With no one there to help him, he lay under all that dung for at least an hour before a watchman came along, and during that time he suffocated. It seems to be just one of those freak accidents that proves that "Shit happens!"
  4. Hi Recently after playing my Tiger P for a while I became so embarrassed by my WR on this particular tank I decided It was my nemesis and sold the tank I did enjoy playing it even though I was playing crap in it and decided I was a drag to my teams. My M6, Tiger 1 & T29 etc on the other hand, I feel I do enough to justify my existence on the team. Now looking at my individual stats the WN8 between these tanks and my Tiger P is not that different but the WR is blagh. Is this a classic case of me not giving it enough games for a large enough sample size or am I just a total scrub in the P ? I know my damage is low in the P but I can work on that. Thanks for replies in advance. Tiger (P) dmg 965,37 exp 667 battles 90 WR 42,22% WN8 1199,33 M6 dmg 672,81 exp 276 Battles 106 WR 54,72% WN8 1112,06 T29 dmg 1161,84 exp 384 battles 70 WR 54,29% WN8 1384,14 etc Cheers Tato
  5. O..M..F..G ! Is that the queen in her nest ? If we kill this player will all the other arty players dissolve or die off ?
  6. Hi Guys & Gals Just bought Fury on DVD and got x3 free invite codes. You get a T-15 7 days premium and a slot. If you fancy one just PM me. First come first serve, whilst stocks last at a dealer near you etc etc ! P.S. its for the EU server. Cheers! Tato Update : All gone ! Enjoy
  7. You know, I waded through the shite posts on this thread hoping to find nuggets of gold that better represent the majority of people on this forum almost nearly too the end, and then these two insightful posts made it all worth while. Many thanks guys. Its a shame its been drowned out in a sea of bile that should have been left on the official forums, mainly by one person granted. BTW my wn8 & win has not really changed much but my credits have soared ! I play the IM's for the premium rewards and cash rather than the end tank. I also just activate them, play the correct tanks and let them come naturally rather than force them. Its a more pragmatic approach to them that keeps me sane !
  8. Guys/Gals Many thanks for all the replies, especially Terrachova. I think the general consensus is to buy Elite for now and keep abreast of SC till it develops some more and maybe then buy that too. The main concerns I had was the lack of depth in Elite (in the exploration sense) that its just randomly generated systems, kinda like the same systems over and over just mixed up in different order and size and thats what made me look more closely at SC. The planet fall, docking and interactive cities etc combined with the fact that the systems are just more in depth but less of them appealed to me (more quality less quantity) but the early stage and very split opinion on it success or just fizzling out make me cautious. In regard too EvE I have played the trial and I respect that it is well established but cannot help feeling that a) it would be harder to make a mark in the game when there is an abundance of long established players/communities. I like the idea of all the players starting out at roughly the same time and also being part of a brand new community, kinda equal footing and sink or swim on your own merit. Its the explorer in me again I think. b) ED and SC are brand new up to date code and engines that feel and look fresh ( and very pretty too in SC) I have just re watched for this third time. This add on mod for ED blows me away and well.... just watch it. http://youtu.be/s4QkltClArw
  9. Hi Guys Looking for a new game too play when I need a break from WOT. I quite fancy a new space blaster/ trade MMO type thingy. I have had a trial on EVE but I feel its quite old now and think the others mentioned above would be a better bet to start on. Have anyone of you played them ? Star Citizen looks bloody amazing but seems to be payola payola payola whereas Elite seems to be a one off payment with only non game effecting optional paid content (paint jobs etc) I dont mind paying for SC if it really is going to be as good as it looks but I also have fond memories of Elite one on my BBC. I have watched countless videos and reviews but not heard anything from an independent source. Have you played them and if so whats you opinion ? which should I buy ? Should I buy both ? Cheers! Tato
  10. I would be surprised if there not. And I am sure if not they would do an good UPS service. They are all small companies the type to be happy to ship upon request. Or if you struggle to get them and fancy it,just PM me and I will chuck some in a box for you.
  11. Yep and seem to be totally blind to the bloody mini map at the same time. I have seen on many occasions my team focus on a really good player in a light on the other side of the map from us and totally ignore immediate fatal threats like a red heavy sat right in our cap. Its like they totally dont care about losing as long as they can get at least one pointless shell into the unicum. You guys are a major distraction to tomatoes Its like trying to herd cats whilst someone (the unicum) keeps shining a laser pointer all over a wall. I've seen a mouth breathing heavy chasing a blunicum in a light all over the map totally ignoring the Td capping us out just to "kill a blue".
  12. I have been trying some US microbreweries out available over here in England and there are some very good ones. These are my favorite English ones that you can probably order in the US and will like. Old Tom 8.5% http://www.oldtombeer.co.uk/flavours Badgers champion Golden is my fav, very fruity taste http://www.hall-woodhouse.co.uk/ Hobgoblin & Wychwood brewery do a nice flavorsome range with seasonal one off batch specials http://www.wychwood.co.uk/ Jennings brewery in Kent also has some great batches. http://www.jenningsbrewery.co.uk/ageGate.aspx?ru=%2fDefault.aspx Black Sheep and its legendary Riggwelter amongst others http://www.blacksheepbrewery.com/ I can add loads more but try all these for now. Or if your in England any time let me know and Ill take you into the back of my workshop to ply you with my latest broth bubbling under the bench.
  13. I love my micro brewery stuff, Badgers champion, Black sheep etc but I mainly brew my own now. I currently have about 10 gallons of light Mexican larger on the go and 10 gallons of a nice Perry cider. Diss ist whyze iz is shit at Tenking mostly after "testing" my latest batch. I totally recommend having a go at brewing if you have the space. The costs are low and you can customize the strength & flavor to your own tastes. you can ferment anything that grows so world is your oyster and you never have to run to the 7/11 again as you never run out Happiness & security is not clean warm socks in the top draw, its 2 more drums bubbling away in the back of the workshop !
