  1. Jaguar, I actually agree with you for once My first thoughts were "this is an extreme way of printing money", "it's the parents whoy should be punished too" and "brainwashing". Who's to say that the kids aquiesce within weeks of getting there, but are kept on longer to get the money out of the parents? It's totally barabric.
  2. Wow, is telemarketing really that much of a problem in the US? Over here, we get cold-called maybe once every 6-8 wks. I always use the excuse that I can't speak French/German (even though I do to some extent) to get rid of them. It sounds like you guys get several calls a day. What a pain in the arse that would be.
  3. Just finished reading Lord of the Rings. Again. I like to read it once every few years, especially now as the films are out and I like to watch them and say "Oi, that's not in the book".
  4. I don't know if you've already bough the mobo, but PC Chips are notoriously unreliable. You might be better off looking at another brand, Asus, MSI, Epox etc. Go to www.pcmech.com and see what the guys on the forums have to say about PC Chips . They will also recommend an alternative. they may be cheap mobos, but it could cost you in the long run. Edit: OK, just realised you've ordered already. too late to change the order?
  5. Pinhead, Hellraiser movies, "I'll tear your soul apart" Hannibal Lecter Emperor Commodus in Gladiator PS Malcolm MacDowell played the baddy in Tank girl
  6. Yes, George Peppard's character. Called "Cowboy" funnily enough.
  7. quote:Originally posted by Race Bannon IV: Believe it or not acclaimed director John Sayles, who is a personal favorite and directed Matewan and Eight Men Out, is responsible for the screenplay to Battle Beyond the Stars. Everybody's gotta start somewhere! I also believe George Peppard and Robert Vaughan maybe(?) appeared in it. It is based loosely on The Seven Samurai. IIRC, Robert Vaughan starred in The Magnificent Seven, also based on The Seven Samurai. Funny eh?
  8. quote:And an old Sci Fi movie where John Boy Walton was the hero. Not really John Boy but the Actor you know who. "Battle Beyond the Stars" I believe it was called. Richard Thomas is the actor. I only know cos it was on the UK Sci-Fi channel the other day. I didn't stop to see the end. Or the beginning for that matter.
  9. Oh dear But please don't confuse this with the suberbly ingenious League of Gentlemen. Is anyone screening it over in the US yet? If you like dark, surreal comedy, this is right up your street.

  11. I use an iMac at work. the damn thing crashes / locks-up about 3 times a day.
  12. I'll be logging onto Werner (the European server) next week. Look out for ÔÇáoeCuÔÇáÔÇáer in the 26th Airmobile outfit (VS)
  13. quote:Originally posted by IceCold: quote: Distilled water is basically mineral-free, try drinking that stuff and you'll completely wreck the osmotic balance of your body. I do not know where you get your information but minerals have nothing to do with osmosis. In fact, they hamper it. They sell distilled water in stores, it is not dangerous in the least. Furthermore, I have drank deionized distilled water which is as close to pure H2O as one can get. Minerals in water are pollutants and pure water will not harm your body in any fashion. You must be reading city propoganda for the introduction of flouride or some other mineral into the drinking water. BTW The water that comes out of this process contains too many mineral pollutants to be potable without additional processing. Erm, I'm actually a biochemist and I have discussed this at length with my supervisor. Not only that, but in our first toxicology lectures, it was made clear that it is not the substance itself which is a toxin, but the dose. Drinking 8 pints of tap water in one go is extremely toxic. The only propaganda I have seen is from the people who supply demineralized/distilled water for consumption.
