Topic: Alive or dead, who is your favorite guitarist?

for me its between James Hetfield, Dave Mustaine and Marty Friedman, the first two are incredible rythym players while marty's solo work is brilliant

Topic: Woman Who Really Hates Mexican Flag loses her job over Hatred of Mexican Flag

Not even sure this classes as a news story, just an idiot on phone being an idiot. Realistically not many other countries base so much emotion on a flag. Yes its a lovely symbol of your given nation but other than that, should it be given the importance its been given. I'm not sure. In response to a previous post suggesting that most counties you would not even be allowed to fly another flag, i would suggest you consider that statement again.

There are many many many places to live in the world, not just America, it may surprise you to know.

Topic: Elliot Rodger kills 6, injures 13 others. Is it rape culture, guns or something else?

Demographically, who is the USA closer to? Australia or Canada? Who do we share similar histories with? Who do we more closely share similar economic issues with?

Do you not mean geographically who are you closer to? Demographically doesn't really make sense at all.

Who do you share similar histories with, well um both actually and they are probably closer to each other than you. lets look in broad strokes;

all three countries former UK colonies (the other two remain in the commonwealth)

All three are pretty big old places, big expances of open farmlands although Canada and Australia probably again more similar to each other than the USA, in both populous and density of population. Both would have had similar economic breakthroughs with mining etc (although australia nearly all animals are more dangerous!). Today i'd venture Australia and Canada are much closer with economics and their issues than the US.

Ironically you have picked two countries more similar to each other than you have even bothered to note.

Less guns less death by guns. Simples

Topic: Poor Little Old Oprah Winfrey
Posted: 15 Aug 2013 12:45

From the press i have read it seems to suggest that Oprah actually asked how much the purse was, and was told in response that it was 38 thousand and that she could show her some other purses as well. It was not a refusal to show her only that there were more options available.

nobody cares if she knew who Oprah was, a non issue, the store owner (who was also at Tina Turners wedding) said she did everything right and backed her up so to rebuff one above claim, then she probably did high five her. Its worth noting that these kind of shops especially in Switzerland or otherwise affluent eurpoean places that asking the price before inspection is usually a sign of not intending to purchase, i know Oprah went on about her "black"card and by that i mean bank card surely she should realise that in shops such as this 90+ percent of people have them. This clerk has worked there for years in another shop somewhere like san maritz or monaco and is fully aware how to deal with the customers.

In the end it does seem like a publicity stunt, i feel the race card was pulled out immediately to cause controversy (when clearly its not a race issue) and to apologise to Switzerland itself straight after is another sign of this, its not like the nation itself was hurt by the claims, nor cared.

other than that the original rant was a tad silly, let people who have money spend it like they want to the economy and people who work for them in great numbers will always benefit. if i could have that kind of money i know i wouldnt be frugal. but i do think Oprah was being overtly sensitive and saw an opportunity to plug her work by foolishly playing the race card, and thats not good in any way.

And now after realing that i wasted time reading the story the other night and now doing this i am truly sorry and do promise never to read anything celebrity related ever!!

Topic: Congrats, gun lovers, you've done it again
Posted: 10 May 2013 14:26

allowing kids guns is lunacy they are not responsible, and they do not need to learn about guns till way later in life.

How can it be deemed at all acceptable, when the child cannot vote for thirteen years or drink legally for another 16 years or are we saying that kids can vote if with an adult or drink with an adult or have sex supervised by an adult. If your going to have guns legally at least surely there should be an age restriction on them. Or is a 5 yr old childs right to bear arms more important than everything ever.

Topic: Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman dies due to liver failure
Posted: 08 May 2013 14:18

RIP Jeff,

While not my fave of the big four bands they certainly had a few classic moments. I was lucky enough to have seen Slayer many times over the years and he was a fantastic live guitarist! he will be missed in the metal fraternity, and joins the likes of Dio, Cliff Burton and others in one hell of a jam band!!

Things can happen when you least expect them

Things can happen when you least expect them. This was very unexpected. This is a true short story, slightly altered by rose tinted glasses. It all takes place in Rock City in Nottingham, we ( a big group of friends) had travelled to this great venue to watch our one of our favourite bands, Megadeath, in the late 90’s. We were all excited and full of anticipation for the show we were about...

First times are never what you expect them to be

First times are never what you expect them to be, mine certainly was not. I was 19, 5 10 blonde and with blue eyes. The newish world internet was but a dial-up away and I had learned of the joys of cybersex, but not the real thing. In many ways the ease of how you could meet people and be more honest was much easier than real life and looking back I probably got a little to immersed in...
