    I mute them ads soon as they come on... or change channel.

    I really want their to be a site that shows real-time view count of channels, just to see how many change channel at a given time :p

    I usually jump channel when the program im watching goes on breaks BUT 9 times out of 10 i find that OTHER channels have gone on a commercial break around the same time the program im watching did so. I get about 10 or something channels with nothing but tv ads, then that happends i usually go and do the dishes or something.

    it annoys me immensely when shit like that happends. they should pass some sort of law or regulation that prevents channels from going on a commercial break all at the bloody same time as each other.

    one thing im really disliking at the moment is the adverts on Fiver where their running an ad for some sort of weekend with sons of anarchy and Lee Marvin from the Dirty Dozen movie. they run that fucking ad at the start of the commercial break then right at the end of it before it goes back to the program. I hate that commercial - I want to hire hulk hogan to go around the creators house, rape his dog, rape his cat, empty a 1gallon drum of wasabi in his gold fish pond. and then rape him up the butt with a cricket bat. because I really hate that advert

    I couldn't give a shit about TV, I haven't watched it properly in years.

    However, American shows can be awesome - for example; Broadwalk Empire - freakin' apeshit!

    I have an AK47 captured in Afghanistan..... will that do?

    @ Moonpig, did you see he was on yesterday, I think he used a different ISP to get in, maybe from work or something but clearly he is avoiding you or he surely would have PM'd. I would advise you to go to the Dispute resolution thread and contact both ERocker and Mussells who looks after the thread.

    Heard the graphics were pretty decent but too much bloom & no re-spawn, is that true?

    Not Naughty, it is registered, cost me £250 (which could actually buy me 4) to have it "Made safe" to bring back to the UK but all they do is take out the working parts and issue a certificate...... then just the usual secure storage requirements and annual inspection.....I have a spare set hidden away anyways ;)

    That's handy, in a zombie apocolypse you could pay some surviving kids to fix the gun up for a few sandwiches :laugh:


    I'm somewhat confused by guns having to be deactivated, after all it's not hard to build a magnetically driven gause rifle with enough power to really hurt/kill someone. ( Just seems projectile weapons are fairly easy to build, just hard to build them and make them highly accurate/low recoil etc XD)

    75 amp truck battery + array of magnets mmm : ]

    John Malkovich once made a gun out of plastic. I think it fired only .22 or .38 calibre though so not exactly a cop killer by any standards. (infact i think the the cops in HK use a .38 S&W Special as stand issue - I know that the better trained fire-arms units use stuff like H&K MP5/10's and 9mm Glocks. In fact, thats pretty much standard issue for security guards working at the Hong Kong Airport. I think the UK airport police are issued with the same loadout. but the only difference is the uniforms - and the fact we make being armed to the back teeth look good)
