    Well done man!

    It's never too early, as long as you don't get behind the wheel you're fine.

    :D
    :rockout:

    When I took my test, I had the most miserable twat of an examiner. Didn't shake my hand when I introduced myself, in fact completely ignore that. Through the test he mumbled, grumbled and was rude. He failed me for waiting whilst some fat bird in a people carrier was trying to park in a space way too small for her vehicle and kept coming over to my side of the road. He got impatient, told me to move through and I only just scraped passed.

    Silly twat said I failed then got out of the car. I had to chase him down to get him to give me a more detailed reason as to why I failed. He didn't say anything of great worth. "I had to intervene and some round-abouts."

    Pig-fucker!

    Anyroad, you passed!

    :rockout:

    Yea don't forget ABS aswell - that's where I came unstuck. My L car had ABS, but my little 306 didn't, and I ended up in a crash because I hit my brakes too hard in the wet and just skidded. Luckily it wasn't my fault, so didn't mess up my no claims.

    What car you got?

    Just completed Black Ops single player - and although I don't want to get into a CoD rant here, I gotta say - when the credits came up, the second song that played was a f**king Eminem song. I mean, come on! Absolute load of jizz.

    I much prefer the CoD:MW1 rap. I didnt even bother making it to the end of the black ops SP. I gave up somewhere after that mission where you swimming in the water in vietnam or impersonating a russian soldier, I cant remember which. and i dont particularly care very much tbh. just like MW2 its more for the consoles i think.

    ----

    but good news on the PC front. BF3 is going to have a full fat non-console port for PC. but its still early days yet, so we shall see how it pans out

    FUCKING JACKPOT

    I was giving one of my old High school friends a lift home and she insisted I drop off her friend. Well her friend was REALLY drunk and left me a lovely sony cybershot as well as being sick in my new car. I'd say a fair trade ?

    If she asks for it back she will get it but if not well.
