    been there so many times a few years ago, stopped cycling for some reason a few years ago, after many miles my old bike started to fall apart and i didn't fit on it anymore etc, so now the only bike i've got is from the 90's

    still, i think i might take up cycling again :D

    EDIT: My brother bought his bike from halfords, needless to say it broke so many times (really a terrible bike), took it to downlands, hasn't broke since except for a tire

    If anyone is interested btw, i'd sell my F6 for £150.. would allow me to get a new bike.

    I used to cycle a lot and was quite fit. But I have been lazy for a long while. Started to cycle to work to avoid giving TFL £1200+ a year for going in a shitty undergroud train to work. But now I'm starting to get into doing it for leisure again.

    not interested at the moment, i'll see how i get on with some cheapo bikes first so i don't buy a £150 bike just to lose interest next week

    I'm thinking of cycling to lose weight, i don't look fat at all, in fact i look quite thin, but i'm becoming aware i weigh a lot more then my friends, in fact paint-balling should be fun if contact is allowed, i can just run through people

    How much do you weigh cheesy? I'm be honest it really doesn't matter how much you weigh,well what i mean is sure if your naturally fat then weigh will matter.
    But if your physique doesn't show it then you shouldn't really worry much.
    Of course you should live in a healthy,exercise lifestyle. I sure am right now and what a difference it made to my health.
    Hit the cardio and weights when you hit 16 mate,do the squats,dead lifts and bench presses etc and you will see results for sure of your physique.
    When i was doing pure cardio and watching my diet i lost half a stone,i used to weigh 14 stone of fat but dropped the fat,now i weigh 13.8stone atm with muscle and loss fat too,i still look chubby no deny but i feel a lot better in terms of health and fitness.
    As for paintballing the only contact you have between others is your paintball gun.

    can i use the gun to move people out of the way?

    i'm not too heavy, i seem to be weak when it comes to endurance though, i'm one of the fastest people i know at sprinting, having won a few 100m's in my life, but i get tired really quickly

    The more you do the better your endurance and stamina will be,hit the interval training is what your feeling in your sprints. Not only you be building up endurance and stamina,increase your speed and improve your heart rate and metabolism which helps you burn off calories a lot faster than average human.
    Sprint for minute then jog for like 30 seconds to a minute then sprint again. You can do this on any cardio exercise.

    Your SPOT-ON, I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT MOTORBIKES, but i do know that i want one, and i want it to be as fast and lighweight as possible

    I do however, prefer the lighter bikes, as i just don't see a practical use for a heavy bike

    one thing i can say, is that you are obviously thinking about some boring cars, as some of them feel far from lifeless

    And by like a car,I meant speed and fuel economy

    In other news, anyone know what coolermaster are like on their warranty's (yes i have many thing's wrong with my PC)

    I'm not trying to be mean or whatever but shouldnt the guy have had a compass?
    In terms of effectiveness he might have been better placed elsewhere.

    Something like this shows there is extremists in every walk of life,not just the currently accepted stereotypes.

    "Still pictures of him, wearing a wetsuit and carrying an automatic weapon, appeared in a 12-minute anti-Muslim video called Knights Templar 2083, which appeared briefly on YouTube."

    Huh what you talking about a compass?

    But can you really blame him after the many lives that have been lost to those who claim to be doing Allah's work?

    The community here in many parts of the UK is shaped around not to piss the Muslims off, which of course means a bann on doing stuff that could offend them. Even though whatever it is that people are doing is the most natural thing of all.

    Ive read in the Metro where a Cafe/Diner near a tube station was ordered to stop serving bacon (or any forms of pork) by their local council. why??? Because the smell of fried bacon might offend muslims. despite the diner already having muslim customers and they already stated that they didnt really mind.

    Just recently a woman was thrown out of a town center for breast feeding her baby, Why?? because it could offend muslims.

    Do you see how scared the councils are that they have to tip-toe around everyones elses human rights just so we dont piss off a certain group or sect of people??

    Its retarded. and the UK needs to take a firmer stance against those within our own shores who preach hatred and extremism and let them motherfuckers know that the UK will not be bought down by their own selfish desires.

    We are a free country, and as a nation we need to standfast and REFUSE to be collared and bought down to our knees by anyone group or faction using the name of any god as a fake pretext for war.

    when will the goverment learn and take action?

    as much as i despise right wing views and activists. the guy had a point. and its something we all could learn from against this evil that seeks to oppress the UK, her people and her ideals.

    He wrote a 1000+ page manifesto before the stuff he did. Talks a lot about what you just mentioned Freedom. Also a lot about how the crusades are misunderstood.

    This guy was a madman and his methods are disgusting. But I do think EU governments should take into consideration some points. I mean, is it really right for us to give up some of our ways of life for the sake of cohabitation?

    This brings to mind the French ban on burkhas in schools. That's something where the foreign community is expected to adapt to local customs.

    Common sense is needed really. For anything imposed by government there will always be a backlash by some group or another. Perhaps it's something that should be decided more fairly. Else we'll end up with nutters from different backgrounds doing shit like this. And us the criminally inactive are the ones who suffer.

    If we go to an islamic country, We are expect to follow and abide by their rules and laws. and their laws are strongly enforced.

    I heard of a female tourist who was handcuffed, frogmarched back to her hotel and orderd to stay in the hotel unless she agreed to wear the full veil.

    we have to listen to their rules so why cant they listen to ours when on our turf? Sure there will be backlashes and no doubt many lives will be lost but it makes sense. I respect the multicultural differences that Britain and its people has to offer, I think multiculturalism is great. but there are people who refuse to play ball, accept whats going on and seperate themselves from this society which ends up promoting hate crimes and reprisals on both sides.

    Its getting to a critical point in this era that we either let them walk all over us and turn the UK into another islamic state or take up arms and issue an ultimatum to them to either fall in line or face being forcefully subdued. No country wants to take military action where it can be avoided. but what do you do if the people you are trying to negotiate with wont listen?

    you crush them under the tracks of a rolling tank. For years we have been negotiating with Extremists. For years we have ran with rolled with each and every blow they threw as they imposed their extremist views not just on Britain, but also the rest of the world. what they are doing is no different then the 'ethnic cleansing' instigated by the Nazi's.

    If only the goverments would stop dragging their feet on the matter, we could have made the world a better place and prevented so many unnecessary deaths

    Or People killing in gods name, or in the name of their country.


    Protip: a lot of people are dicks. Dickish things happen.

    But to blame it on religion ethnicity is stupid considering especially that the Islamic states where WAY ahead of their time not that long ago but went all dark ages again because they didn't like the way the western world was going (look it up, Burkas being forced unto people is something that they grew past but then it got bought back not even 100 years ago if I remember correctly)




    Always researched information your self, the media often don't tell you all you need to know.

    Everyone is blaming muslims like the german people started blaming the jews.

    Started off with precisely these sort of things and it spirals out of control as people only see what they want to see eventually.

    religous hate wins, gods message clearly loses.

    your brittish born chinese surely a good example of the fact that the uk has a long history of accepting foriegn peoples and then absorbing that culture into a mostly healthy multicultural society, your allways gona get the odd bad bean in any batch, the news stations exaserpate and enhance the tension of what are marginal acts, and create the fear and religouse tension, its a shame as with so many religions all promoting peace its bemusing all this fighting, isnt it.

    Fact is, 75% of the Mosque's built in the London area have been built with the help of Saudi and other rich Middle eastern Muslim countries, mainly because they holiday every year during their long hot summer in the UK (and US), they were appalled back in the 80's and 90's that there were so few places to worship........ now I lived in Kuwait for 4 years but spent 3 weeks every 3 months in Saudi, I challenge you to go find a Christian Church there, well to be fair you might today (although I doubt it) as I left in 1999..... what does that tell you about how moderate a society we are and how the opposite applies to some of our "friends".

    WE didnt bring it on ourself, capitalism demands cheap workers, and pretty much everyone here got a family foot in the door in the past, im not promoting an open gate policy just makeing a point that these would be bare isles if no one had been let in

    none of our grandparents wanted to blend in ,they were who they were but over time their kids and grandkids deceminate into being brittish born somethings then eventually their just brittish after a load more gens.

    Bah you guys are thinking irrationally, do you think immigration is really the problem?

    If so you need take a step back and look and the history of this country, we're an Island of immigrants, it's probably what helped us become a major force not that long ago as we had ideas from all over constantly coming in.

    If people stopped thinking of the land they were coincidentally born on as their own their wouldn't be so many problems.

    Further more we had a huge freaken empire not that long ago, this country has spilled many millions of peoples blood which every one always seems to forget.

    Hell in Africa to help take over their we'd give waring factions guns ( one side with, one side got no guns) to make it easier for us to move in.

    The Islamic nations aint got shit on this wee Island when it comes to killin' and trying to bully people into what we think is right.

    We still do it just a bit more subtle now ;)
