    Not by enough tho! 25 is the BEST age, you cannot even legally have a beer with your meal whilst on holiday in Florida!

    Got a question for my UK friends.

    Is it me or is the whole damn world seem to be doing EVERYTHING half ass anymore? EVERYTHING is just "good enough" and if you question it your labeled an ass. Is it the same over there?

    Only people that seem to be bringing their a-game anymore are the idiots.

    That's quite a broad thing to answer. Generally speaking anything that is remotely related to money IS far worse now than it has been. You get served sub-par products and shoddy services by less-than-intersted staff almost everywhere.

    But europeans can riot like pro's. That's definitely something people ain't lacking spirit in.

    21 is the legal drinking age in Florida. 18 for consensual sex and voting. 10 years for the Death penalty. :laugh:

    A shotgun is less dangerous in the hand of an American then a beer.

    FYI Most crimes are committed with stolen guns in the US so the age to buy a gun is kinda irrelevant.

    Guy's have a problem...

    I sold my GTX460 just over a month ago, maybe a month and half by now anyway the point is the friend I sold it to has just today said the card won't run anything demanding due to overheating - I never had an issue with the card especially with the temperatures!

    He's kind of hinting at a refund?? but really, what should I do?

    take a look at it, maybe it needs a little clean tell him, if it is still works test it, show him that it's fine and he needs to clean his PC up :shadedshu otherwise swap out the cooler

    Refund on your own terms, if he has ruined it then he should foot the bill

    I know, although i was not talking about crime, just visualising the 18 year old with a shotgun in one hand and a beer in the other and the Police Officer being more concerned about the Bud lite than the Benelli lol.

    But that's the thing, I'm sure if there is actually anything wrong with it then it's not from the time I had it. I've already told him to bring it back and I'll stick it in the rig I pulled it from to see how it runs but he hasn't exactly said he's gonna do that either.

    I just feel bad for selling gear and it somehow breaking on the new user, infact I never sell my old gear because of this reason - I usually donate to the family. :)

    I find it worse you can vote at 18 then own a gun. You should be at least 30 to vote IMO. :laugh:

    Edit: Wish you would have contacted me man. We could have hit the range for a few hours. My treat.

    Sounds like perhaps a driver issue, if he has had it for a month he must have SHIT case ventilation or just doesn't know what broken is.....

    Test in your pc and see, 90% sure the card is fine ;)

    Next time I promise and it won't be too long, quite possibly without half the family so it will be easier. :toast:

    SHIT is that a new acronym in the technical sphere? I know F.U.C.K. stands for failure to use clean kryptojargon.

    Got mah pay slip in... Started working for them a little late so its a little disappointing... I was so hoping to go on a spending spree :/ but on a more positive note, I did get a higher rate then what they originally said i would get. but they didnt tell me wat the cut off date was which turned out to be the 30th this month but I didnt start picking up extra shifts & hours until after that which means i wont see the bigger half of my pay packet till january :cry: :cry:

    I had everything planned then my money just had to fall through :( I got a little disposable income but really gotta watch what i spend it on but at least £30-50 will go on alcohol for my christmas tradition!
