Ok, ok, I will give in and discuss it.

As a long time Guns and Roses fan, you read the bullshit rumors year in, year out about an original lineup reunion. The gnrnews site was a day a dicktease gaurantee for it. It was on equal terms with Shenmue 3 in terms of a "future". You roll your eyes and move on.

But in the past week, this Coachella rumor has really gathered steam, and now today multiple media reports are confirming that the announcement is coming on Jimmy Kimmels show next week? Even Time Magazine and Rolling Stone Magazine are running with it.

I am still refusing to believe it, but if Shenmue 3 can happen..... nah. I don't know. But it is a hype train that's gathering pace rapid.

Tethering my laptop to my phone is now the least issue-causing way for me to view t3h gagahz00 porn these days. First world problems, but the fact that the phone does it faster too is absolutely mind blowing in a sort of first-world sort of way. Mind, and ......

I had my first longsword practice yesterday. Despite using plastic training swords, I still somehow managed to get a cut. A tiny cut, but it still makes think I'll be this guy by the time I make it to steel swords.

Kids these days don't have anything to rebel against.

And it's kinda sad.

Maybe in Argentina?
Every country is different..
If you live in the States cops and wanna-be cops shoot/beat kids left and right. Some kids that are the opposite of violent trouble makers just get destroyed for no reason. Like this depressed suicidal emo white kid who threw himself into a trash bin then his parents called the cops to try and find and help him. Instead the cops put an attack dog on him, completely destroyed his face. They even pre-planned the attack via text to each other like it was a joke.
Then you'd think those cops would get in trouble right? Get fired? Maybe alittle suspension at the least? Nah, the judge threw the case out. It was "within policy". Cops got away with it. This kind of thing happens all the time.

Some other black kids got beat up by some cops after kicking them out of a community pool in a mostly white neighborhood.
Then other high profile stuff, Treyvon Martin and all that..
Kinda gives kids alot of reason to rebel or disrespect the cops when things like that happen.

Not saying some kids don't deserve a beating by a cop for being a douche bag but some of the stuff coming out these days is abit too far and most of the American kids hear talking these days dont have a good impression of authority figures.

You probably mean it's sad that they don't see the stuff to rebel against? Humans and animals are being mistreated, taken advantage of and slaughtered for profit left and right. Most of us simple don't care. There's way more than enough to eat and to buy and they're making another Star Wars, so why complain.

I don't really drink anywhere near as much as I used to, maybe it's being a little older now has made me more sensible. But honestly feel like death here after last night, me and the missus went to one of those cabaret burlesque clubs thats just opened in the city, and I think we spent over £200 on food, and then alcohol. Cocktails, beer, cider, jagerbombs, 16 year old Bushmills wiskey, then I think... I think I had a vodka and redbull in a nightclub I think we were in. It's 3pm, and I seriously feel like curling up in bed. Or throwing up. :throwup:

Yeah man I feel you. The older I get the more I realize drinking is gross. I never particularly liked it in the first place but hanging out with others and going to bars and whatnot lends itself to drinking. I'd rather just have a glass of chocolate milk.

It's the social norm here. I could try and completely give it up, but my friends all drink, my family and of course, she loves a good ol knees up too. But I dunno, I just can't be arsed with it. But I have put on a lot of weight recently and am in the worst shape I think I have ever been in so I need to do something about it. We danced for a bit too last night and I sear I thought I was gonna go into cardiac arrest.

I don't get drinking to the point of puking.

I'm happy with a couple of beers with friends. Just enough for you to let yourself go and have fun.
