    I'm already pretty much awesome at everything :p

    Speaking of boats, at least I've got boat based stuff to do at the moment, might be able to make some pennies repairing and painting the canal boats.

    truth is..people think recession would slowly ends in 18months and think its getting better now?? but if you look in the open world,i don't think it would end in 18months,study in business studies and they probably estimate at least 3-8years or something for recession to end..and hope it doesn't go to a slump,then we would be in biggg trouble.
    Remember people,world war started because of recession; in WW2 the nazi killed the jews because they are in charge of there finances and accouncy but they was in recession so they blamed jews and killed them all,if i have said something bad then i'm sorry =(

    Technically it didn't start because of recession. It lead to tensions between countries but Germany was one of the few countries that seemed to be in recession because Hitler had turned the economy around by producing weapons which eradicated unemployment.

    Anyway history aside, What are the chances that I leave school and theres a fricken recession, Thats a kick in the balls for me :( For example when I left primary school the school got a massive increase in budget and is incredibly high tech with a huge football park now. When I left high school they got a whole new school and I got a recession :(

    I think we should pull a nazi germany and start producing weapons and sell them for money :D

    Is that not what we're doing with the SA80 once we're finished with it? I know we made a load of SLRs 30 years ago and sold them all to dodgy african countries for a mountain of cash, may be worth repeating... They've got a whole mountain of cadet rifles to dispose of in the near future.

    I'm joining, I live in the UK :D as for bitching.. I'm going to bitch about a woman I know, it was her birthday not long ago and I really didn't want to go but ppl wouldn't leave me alone about it so I ended up going. Anyway this other girl I know kept prodding me like "oh so you DID come" *playfully kicks me* "Doesn't she look attractive tonight?" etc etc etc. For some reason ppl think I fancy the birthday girl.. an its fucking annoying. Sure, said girl has tried shagging me, but I knocked her back every time... shes a real slut, the kind even I wouldn't fuck. Ideas how I can squash the rumors once an for all?

    Easy. Tell her it ain't happening. Then again, that will most likely make her want it more. Sorry mate, you have no choice but to fulfill her womanly needs. No other way around it, do your duty. :ohwell:

    Punch the girl, right in the face.

    The first is more efficient. heh.

    well you know what my business teacher said to end recession?? "war" yeah thats what my teacher said "war"..pretty much sending load of people into war and they die= less people and less people=more jobs?? and who actually think footballers deserve over 500k per week just to kick a football around ¬¬ i for one don't think they deserve that much..we people only earn what 20-70k a year?? and they get bloody 150k+ per weekk thats unfair for us ¬¬ and we are providing them there payment by going to there stadium watching them and buying there tops which got sowed up by poor people

    That was my idea too ... F-U china.

    Why not let the rich people stay rich because they will buy so much stuff it will keep some business' afloat. Not that the footballers deserve that amount but it all ends up back in the business' pockets and onto the workers and back to the douchebag footballers.

    you saying china is bad??? its not that its chinas fault,its just companys uses china and other part of asia because labour is cheap..which i find very sad because why do children bust there fingers which they only get paid like 20-50p for 1 pair of football or a top and they go out on sale for £30-40..its really unfair for them and i believe England is blaming immagrants?? for recession and making british people losing there jobs?? well the reason is because its cheap labouring..

    You're trained to avoid getting blown up you do realise, the risk of being wounded is a lot lower than you'd think. I know roughly twenty ex-cadets who've joined one of the armed services and only one has even been injured while serving in the sandy places, and that was only a minor injury (most of those guys did join at officer level though).

    I feel sorry for the guys in WWI who walked straight into machine gun fire and kept going through artillery and MG fire at the same time. Some people did that more than once.

    It won't be us starting WWIII, it'll be t'americans. Then we'll be forced to join in...

    I'd be tempted to sign up, but i duno, I'll need to get some hours in on CoH first. V1 rocket anyone?

    I can see where this topic is going...
