    Yeah tim sucks. I tuned into him a few times when he use to do the Radio 1 lateshows. I think i musta been 14 or 15 at the time. I never really liked him anyway. but i suppose its an 'image' people need to show off

    tim is respected in the music industry but on the street hes a loser who is trying to be a something he isnt

    he tries to copy xzibit and stuff on pimp my ride uk and its pathetic, he comes out in gear that looks like stuff from the original ice cube friday movie all those check shirts and stuff, he can t pull it off and acts and fails like an idiot

    CH4 firday nights had father ted and trigger happy tv and south park now its all bull shit

    ch5 used to have cool movies and porn drama movies on late at friday

    bbc is a joke but its iplayer is cool

    everything has changed from the late 90 when stuff was cool now its too much stereotype and social groups, they were around back then but less noticeable all this indie shite and being an emo is just a joke

    Agreed, also the news annoys me. I mean don’t get my wrong I love knowledge but not when it is constantly trying to scare people with "Gangs, Knifings, kids with kids, Murders, Shortages on salt (when really there isn’t, I know poor example but you know what I mean)" Just non stop bad things and there is never any good news about Britain, I vote for ether funny pictures or videos to be played once within an "advert lineup". That would lighten my day up.

    lol the brits is a sham, if any decent acts are on i might watch it, i have a sister so she can just tell me if something cool comes on

    that had to be the worst chippy ive had in years fish my arse it had 0 taste it was like fish texture but no taste lol johns chippy is not as good as it used to be, lol here is a story at my old house i lived next to a chippy just a few houses down the street so my mate ordered a delivery to my house even the delivery guy was laughing at the door i mean my old place was maybe 6 houses and the health clinic car park away which is small


    gonna get a drink of irn bru just fitted that rubbish 8600gs to my old machine, kinda regret buying it thought it would be more powerful than a x800gto but i might be mistaken, that x800gto was a beast back in the day got it for £120 i think at release

    Irn bru is quite good but I hate the aftertaste. I remember getting my x850 for £150 it was a beast when I got it but its a shame it couldn't do SM3.

    x800GTO was the first PC part I ever bought, cost me £126.

    Was really upset when I got Bioshock from my brother for my birthday and I couldn't run it due to SM3.

    back in the days when i use to pull 60hrs+ a week average - I bought a (AGP) x850xt pe for £300+

    I loved that card to bits. so much that i refused to sell it so it sits in my back up rig which hasnt been booted up in like 2 years....

    My backup rigs not that powerful anyway but it will serve me well for a few weeks.

    x850xt pe

    AMD64 3000+@2.7Ghz

    2Gb - 2x1Gb Elixir PC3200 Overclocked to 250-260mhz. I bought these modules for like £20 each brand new lol

    MSI Neo2 Platinum Nforce3 Ultra (my second one since I fried the first one some how)

    80Gb sata 1

    yeah it took a while to do without the laughter and they usedto do it in front of an audience or they would add in the laughter track

    i liked it tho made it a bit more modern

    just hope they do another set of specials for red dwarf, im a big fan dont ask why i just love it

    irn bru is great but i dont drink it as much as i used too
    i think irn bru is a kids thing, glass bottle of irn bru and a kebab LOL

    "Everyone in the world loves irn bru, even though I used to be a man!"

    Best ad a soft drink company has ever come out with.

    Period.

    Now just you shut up about these "Give-Away qualifications", I'm working bloody hard towards these...
    I'm tempted to find the past paper essay that has a go at that kinda statement...
    All this coming from someone who literally only properly started revision tonight...
