    Thanks. Ram prices seem to be dropping though.... will they stay this low by the time BF3 comes out? I want to upgrade my RAM and GPU by then.

    I can hear the police sirens going and a strong smell of burning.

    Looks like those bastard rioters have setfire to something up the road. Not too sure if its a building or a car. but it smells like burning rubber/plastic.

    Water cannons are only effective vs people who tend to stay in large groups individuals running away with loot is ineffective for water cannons. Rubber bullets have been used in Belfast and killed people. I think the en mass tactic of the police is working in certain places but the police are too thin for it to actually work well on all fronts.

    HAHAHAHAHA Scottish police have been deployed in England. How come our uncivilized society is on its arse when there are riots all over England? England looks like 1970s Northern Ireland right now.

    I lol'd at the brush thing with Boris Johnson.

    Don't back chat your elders :slap: hehe

    Seems the rioting has calmed down, little fuckers. My son missed an important hopsital appointment at the Birmingham Childrens Hospital cause his mum didn't want to go up there with 2 young kids with what was going on.

    So do the police just do nothing then? if these people don't want violence directed toward them perhaps they should not be acting violently towards other people. I would gladly offer my services and wouldn't think twice about shooting them with rubber bullets, I mean who the hell do they think they are?? The little chavvy f**ckers been quited on TV and radio saying they are doing this cause they can, in that case let's show them that actually, they can't the majority of people in the UK work for a living and work damn hard for what they have and to have 16 and 17 year old ruin years of their hard work for a moment of madness is not acceptable, one day they might actually (god forbid) have a family of their own and realise what something like this can do to decent common working people and young families, I say punish them to the full extent of the law. Kids need a good bloody slap nowadays and thats what's lacking, trouble is they know no one can touch them so they all act like lil wannabe gangsters :banghead:

    Not directed at you btw Kieran, though just couldn't stop once I had started, it has made my blood boil the trouble they have caused without even thinking about the repurcussions and ripples.

    I was only stating a fact, you interpret that as you wish. The police are reluctant to use rubber bullets. Maybe the ends justify the means but the police cant think like that.

    It's doing my nut in hearing people say "send in the army". What the hell does that say of the UK if we can't control civilian problems without the aid of military forces! Martial law is really not a solution to this. A lot of the "extreme" resorts are just simply not right. As Kieran pointed out, water canons are no use against pockets of thugs either.

    What needs to happen is for youths who act criminally to be treated as criminals. Let the police in riot gear smash their useless heads in. Political correctness, is messing up the nation. A 13yr old with a petrol bomb should be treated with the same harshness as any adult. If they bare arms, they should expect to accept the consequences.

    But meh, this doesn't solve the underlying issue of lawless scumbags. Forget asking parents to sort it out, most of them are worse than their kids. Bring on compulsory military service like we used to have in Spain. Teach them all some manners.

    Told you I was not aiming it at you, though you did get me started but my comments weren't directed at you, more at venting my frustration and anger at the turn of events over the last week and tbh I have a right to state my opinion being as I work and pay taxes and have a young family so am affected in more than one way to all this nonsense thats going on.

    Kids need something to do?? how about stop carrying knives and guns and acting like grown up gangsters and killing other kids and bystanders in the process, it's about time we stopped pussyfooting around peoples feelings and playing fiddle to the EU like we have done the US for so many years and put our fucking foot down, yes people have rights though were are the victims rights when they get taken away by the young thugs who think they can do as they like, then they go prison and get treated to board and lodgings as well as luxuries low income families can't afford and then have the right to sue for their so-called human rights? you lose them when you take them away fromanyone else imo

    Try IMGBurn, I don't know for sure, but strongly suspect it has the ability to do so

    Sadly, I don't think they care. It's the rest of us who have to pay for the damages to livelihoods and economy. I sincerely hope the police track down as many as possible and get them behind bars. doing community service in clown suits.
