    Actually the USA has some of the most open immigration in the world. So open we don't engage Mexicans from across the border crossing with weapons the majority of the time. We have them shoot at our Border defense Patrols and they don't shoot back most of the time. Drug cartels from Mexico could easily take over portions of the UK if they bordered you. Your police often times don't even carry firearms. Our police carry two handguns and a shotgun and/or rifle in the trunk. We defend our people because we have more threats to our safety. I am glad we are not so soft on criminals and we don't let fresh immigrants push us around and censor our free speach either.

    If that was in the USA it would have played out different. If he injured someone with those bricks we would have given him a time limit to get off that roof via a provided means and if he continued to throw those bricks we might have shot his ass off. Public safety and protecting the innocent is far more important than protecting a criminal hurting innocent people.

    i'm not surprised he ordered kfc,he climbed three floors for it,he must have been tired the poor little lamb..
    the service wasnt very prompt though,its 2011 and he ordered it in 2006
    i would have gone for something a little more like food though,maybe a nice lasagne with a cold beer to wash it down

    Little side note. During the cold war we provided arms and supplies to the Muslim "terrorists" who fought against the Soviet Union. These arm are now being used and distributed in the Middle East, in the efforts to stop the influence of the West.

    None of these observations are ground-breaking in any sense of the word.

    We went into Iraq to establish a second, and more democratic, foothold in the Middle East (where my Israelis at?). Our leaders, for whatever reason, believed that there were weapons of mass destruction, and used it as a reason to "liberate" the people. They "liberated" the country from the dictators that they put into power to fight the Soviets. This is America finally doing right by the people they used as pawns in the war versus communism, no more and no less.


    Back to the happy. Anyone else finally enjoying the summer sun? It's been a long time coming considering the massive winter this year.

    all we got is 2 window acs to deal with this inferno... cant afford to put a central one in... our house is from 1910 or somethin like that... and where I live the temps should never get this hot. 60% of the houses here don't have central becuase you normally don't need it.

    [​IMG]

    is my area forecast... bloody hell... note the averages on the side... that's how it's supposed to be this time of year.

    and inb4 texans and AZ folks....

    my family is from Poland and I was born in NE Ohio in the winter.... to me anything above 85 is hell!!! my genetics can't cope with it....

    and when it's cold you can just bundle up and it's easier to deal with... and cheaper... I got a fireplace and tons of firewood and kerosene heaters and space heaters.

    I just wear hoodies and baggy wind pants and those keep me warm....

    Did i say anything about the UK? Nope so why mention it? Got an inferiority complex?
    BTW i live in Scotland (lump the rest of the UK with England nice one) and we have our own judicial system protected in the act of union. Also there are different police forces in the UK for different areas.

    Immigration is extremely open in the EU, we have freedom of movement.

    Mexico? Your talking in a what if scenario who is to say the UK would be the same if it bordered Mexico? We border nothing but the sea so its easy to protect our borders, i don't have a problem with people legally entering the UK; contrary to a stagnated jobs market there are labour demands in certain sectors, emigration and more people in their old age.

    The reason police don't carry firearms is obvious because it would be hypocritical for police to carry arms while citizens cant, also because no one owns guns there is less of a need for a police offer to carry them. Only the anti terrorist guys carry sub machine guns and mostly they guard at airports.

    Its nice when i get called out, makes me feel wanted :rolleyes:

    I don't really see why that man on the roof got a KFC? Over here the police are liable so if for example he starved to death the officers are liable for that; (its to do with prisoners going on hunger strike from the suffragettes to the troubles in N.Ireland) although that doesn't mean he needs a KFC. First time ive heard of anything like that, how did you find out about that then?

    Americans have their systems and i don't really care tbh, don't go criticising other places. Before anyone jumps, what i said was true as immigration is a big issue in America. I didn't criticise American immigration issues.

    What kind of heat index you got there?

    Temps look the same as we are having up in KS though thanks to the heat index, we get to tack on another 10F. Go to love working outside in this. :shadedshu

    At least I don't have to go to the gym. :laugh:

    Heat index is usually 8-10. It's 95 it'll feel like 105.

    I was outside trying to mount my front mount intercooler for 3 hours and my shirt was soaked in sweat. Gross and I know y'all didn't need to know that. Texas heat sucks balls. Big hairy fucking monkey balls.

    From the angle looks like plenty of ground clearance with the bumper? My cars FMIC sat a bit low for my tastes, so I cut the bottom strip off. Then cut about an inch up off the front and back, then welded the bottom strip back in and bolted the rad back to that so it was raised up enough for ground clearance, worked slickly. That a Turbo Diesel?

    I actually decided it wasn't close enough to the crash bar and used nylon string to tie it closer together (obviously just to test fit) and it still didn't fit. It sucked working in the 95+ HEAT and not getting anything done. At least I got gas for $3.23 a gallon.

    It's not a turbo diesle, but a turbo 2.0l it's an Audi a4
