    haha its a PITA when the coins tear the sock tho!
    but yea your right,momentum carries them quite well,its enough to shock someone enough to delay them responding.
    I first saw that in "scum" when i was a nipper,nasty film....maybe thats how the jailhouse should be now,they make it seem like the prisoners have it better than some of us do out in the real world.

    yeah. sadly its only good for a few uses unless you wrap the coins up in more socks.

    I only did it once though, as i did use to own a pair of brass knuckles

    you know i never really had to use much in the way of weapons,i had stuff to deter would be's but most of the time it just came down to getting in fast and flat footed.
    I'm glad those days seem to be over tbh,alot of my friends aren't here now,some of them are still here but not fully in control of motor functions etc
    i wonder who got off the lightest really.
    The only time i ever used brass knuckles i ended up in as much pain as the poor fella that took a lick :laugh:

    Yes, and by clockspeed 60% more powerful in CPU and 2x more powerful GPU. I would trade battery for higher res screen and more power, but that might not be something you want.

    Well, if you are sure you will not have any regrets by buying it then go ahead (if you have not done it already). And if you have done so, you automatically waive your right to whine and bitch about it :p

    Freedom, apparently there were 4 loud explosions at a diesel depot near Tottenham just now. Did you hear them?

    Some bird I know just put up a status update on facebook - "These looters need to get a life theyre worse than terrorists what's the point in stealing stuff they think theyre clever but theyre just little boys really takes the p*ss"

    I replied to her update like so: "Anyone want a 38" HD TV? I've got 15 of them for sale."

    Well there's an upside and a downside... They barely took anything as it was only the back yard and shed's but that's where I keep all my old computer stuff but thief's round here wouldn't know what to do with them and the stuff is still there with the looks of it so, That's kinda the upside. Downside is that the idiot's stole my only mean's of transport which may be a push bike but it was perfect for me and then I have no insurance so yeh I suck right now for that!

    EDIT: Thanks for pointing out the spelling error :p
