    thats probably a good assumption given that the PSU is indeed made by Corsair and not some other shitty brand

    I don't know UK politics but I'm trying to learn. After all US politics have become so predictable I know what they are going to do before they do it.

    Now let me ask this....is Nick Clegg as stupid as he sounds?

    he's not stupid, he just lies to a degree that is extreme even for a politician

    example:he said he wouldn't raise uni fee's, then he tripled them

    it's things like that that should make you realize how much we all hate him now, he's almost as bad as cameron:mad:

    EDIT:There's a song from a popular british TV program that sums up the situation

    We all dislike Blair but we have noticed that everything was great until he was replaced by the incompetent fool that was Gordon brown.

    Gordon brown done nothing but mess up my hard learnt routes through london,
    him and red ken changed every bloody rat run so all we could do is get stuck in traffic.

    Well Ill tell ya we loved Blair and I think he did a lot of good for the relationship between the nations. I know "being up Americas arse" isn't the cool thing to be but would you rather be up China's arse?

    Also didn't Brown sell off all of your gold worth? Just in time for a massive world economic collapse? If he hadn't done that you guys would be sitting pretty right now.

    thats half the problem MM,you guys loved him coz he went over smiled,shook hands and drunk tea while showing crooked teeth(playing to your stereotype of english people),he done nothing but wimper and follow your idiot PM's whims instead of roaring like a lion for his people.

    yea brown fucked us up several times over:
    one year he announced he had taken like 1.13 billion too much in taxes?
    he thought he was doing us a favour by giving a couple million back..

    No we liked him because he backed us up in a time of trouble. Felt like we had a friend for a change. Never felt like the UK was sucking up. Believe it or not American respect strong personalties and I think Blair had that.

    Also you do realize that the relationship between our nations has gone south since Obama. He even sent back the bust of Churchill.

    I'm extremely glad that I don't give the slightest sh*t about politics. Got enough to worry about.




    TMM, did you just say that Blair has a strong personality?
    There is no emoticon that could possibly describe how funny that statement is.

    For Americans, right or wrong we like people who do what they say they are going to do. When Blair said he would do something (when America was involved) he did it. Our own Presidents don't even do that. Thats what we like.

    I bit the bullet on that memory, even if it was a little more expensive today. I figure now I finally found employment I deserve a treat.

    TMM, I was also annoyed when Gordon Brown sold off our gold. I reckon it would have been worth upto 50% more today. Plus it would have given the UK more financial security during the recent financial problems.

    Out of Blair, Brown, Cameron, and Major (i think I missed someone out) I think the ranking would go:

    Blair > Major > Cameron > Brown

    Tony struck me as quite intelligent for a politician. But, he said no tuition fees then introduced tuition fees. Typical.

    thats the thing,he didnt have the backbone to tell you go stick your war for oil ahem war on terror up yer gary glitter.
    i can understand respecting strong personalities,thats a universal thing.
    its not like we would have gotten a share anyway so why waste so much other peoples lives...
    but i think we differ there,to me he was weak as dishwater.

    nice one finding a job millenium

    I don't think he was spineless. I think he was mislead IMO.

    And given the current situation in the UK I bet you would be missed. :rolleyes:

    Same. He's got about as much personality as a dry turd. IMO.
