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
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.
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
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!!
I have seen a good portion of them and the list is pretty good, i thought The West Wing was the best written of the lot myself, but Sopranos was great as was MASH , all in all a good list
Ha there are loads worldwide, in Nottingham UK you are permitted to shot a scot on sight, but only with a crossbow
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.
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!!
My own summer (deftones)
I have absolutely no problem in using force to defend your home, however i think proportionality is important, as you say statistically i am unlikely to be a victim of crime especially at my home. However in our country Wales btw the person commiting the act is hugely unlikely to be carrying a gun also. Society wise we don't in this country have everyday stories of burglaries and multiple murders etc in the manor you report at your news stand, part of that obviously has nothing at all to do with guns, just the nature of the criminal. It would however be proportiate to if you did have a gun, and you rightly say cannot devine their intentions, then shooting to disarm or wound to prevent them commiting any such act. I have no issues in making your home safe as quickly as possible. I have no particualr issues with people having guns for sport/hunting, and anyone can still have a gun in the UK with a licence, what we cant have is handguns, which I fully support as there is no need to own themI think if analysed Libya and Syria the change of Government hasn't really come from the rebels from fighting more from pressure from outside governments and agencies to not put the rebels down with excessive force and chemical weapons etc. It is the news reporting forcing foreign governments like ours to act, It is that pressure not the rebels works that has caused the major breakthroughs.Unfortunately this issue is sadly in the news today, and i will say its not good responsible people like your good selves who commit these terrible things, unfortunately handguns are just too easily available to these people to do such things. It is a sad day.
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, 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...
