She's one of many that I miss around here. You'll find her on other sites though, she's not hard to find mate.
Much as I miss her she was her own worst enemy here, she was always right everyone else was always wrong and she left no room for contrary opinions. That kind of passion is one of the reasons I miss her (and others) but I imagine she is happier elsewhere.
Nice blog MaNaM, it's always good to remember old friends that used to make us smile. Much better than just complaining about each others threads and blogs like we usually do [:Qloveliness]
I just ignored the list and scrolled down to watch Deirdre get stomped in the comments section. Where's [user="ausy"] and [user="dethholly"] when you need them [:Qtitter]
Just an idea deirdre...release the folder as a torrent then put this list in the description
According to H.P.Lovecraft what we call life is just a collection of images in our minds, it doesnt matter if our memories are of reality or our dreams, each are equally valid so it doesn't matter which is the true reality. So just chill, dont worry about it :D[:Qlol]
Of course he also said if we recite passages from the necronomicon we'll open interdimensional portals and many tentacled monsters will eat us. That you can worry about [:Qshocked]
You can look at life and your mother that way if you wish, that is your right. But instead look deep, everyone, man, woman, mother, father has something about them that can be loved. It may be a small thing and the bad may make it seem insignificant but you have a choice between celebrating the good or hating the bad. Do you want to be [i]that[/i] person, who can hate but not love?
Britain (Scotland) is my country. I was talking about us, not America, when describing the easily available firearms to those who want to take the trouble to acquire them. It's easy, cheap and just requires the will to get out there and find one. The idea you need to be "connected" is absurd. An infamous report by the BBC a couple of years ago revealed more firearms injuries occurred in Manchester than Washington DC (per head of population).
I agree that a fear based response is a rational first response. Of course we should be in fear of guns being more available for anyone to create. But ignore (for the sake of argument) your first response and think through the subject. Will guns be more available? Who, today at least, can afford the technology to create the weapon but cant afford to buy a "real" gun in any of our major cities, illegally.
Maybe we should make this information hard to find but I dont think that is possible. In the brief time the design was available [b]legally from non-torrent sites[/b] it was downloaded 100,000 times. That's before TPB got involved and I just feel the genie is now out of the bottle, good luck getting him back in.
Sorry Ahriman but that is a very fear based answer, just because it scares us doesnt mean we should restrict it, even if we could. Your child porn argument applies here. Yes its abominable, yes almost every civilized country will lock you up for owning or distributing it, but its out there and people who want it will find it. Its impossible to prevent that. Of course i'm not saying make CP available to all, please dont think that :/
I can see why people want to prevent this kind of information being readily available. But if the information exists then people will find it. You think people will make guns just because TPB tells them how? You think people who want to obtain guns will give up because they cant find the info on TPB? Nonsense. The info exists, it's out there already and respect for TPB for sticking to their guns (pun wasn't intended) and continuing their policy of not restricting access to data.
Interesting read. But let me get this straight. They legally force you to have a day off, ironically calling it a "workers day" and then they have a brass band march up and down to wake you up at 6am?!?! The phrase [i]Rotten Buggers[/i] springs to mind.
I misread a part the first time ("tradition. The guest syndrome"). I thought i had read Tradition, the [b]Great[/b] syndrome. I think my error actually fits nicely with your opinion of tradition. Or my interpretation of your opinion. Now i'm digressing. Never mind though, you've proven above that digression it not always a bad thing. It passes the time at least.
Enjoy your day off maxi [:Qloveliness]
Rather than we are what we dream to be I would argue that we are what we perceive ourselves to be. If we look to the past and view our actions negatively, as a failure on our part, then we view ourselves that way too. If instead we look to the past and perceive each negative experience as a lesson we undertook, a necessary path to get us to where we are today then we look at our present self with a kinder eye. A more accepting eye.
John Lennon was a fabulously talented musician/songwriter. But he really was a pretentious oaf when he opened his mouth to speak, wasnt he ?
