  1. It's also available on usenet for all those who have newsgroup access - just search for "Tom Cruise Scientology"
  2. Hopefully this server will be a bit more "under the radar" than YouTube http://music.50mbit.com/music/Tom%20cruise...gy%20babble.avi
  3. Yeah I know scientologist in a bit of a loony shocker, but even so, he really has gone full-on round the twist. http://www.celebitchy.com/8603/tom_cruise_...uickly_removed/ Do we have any of those certifiable nutcases on the IOM? If so, can we burn them?
  4. A little bit of muffin top can be rather endearing. Better a lass is chubby than skinny, skinny is not sexy at all. A nicely oiled bottom is very sexy.
  5. This sums it up quite nicely. http://www.the-editing-room.com/iamlegend.html#more-366
  6. I can't justify it either, but I've had enough of driving around in a 'nice' family saloon, so a mental nutcase like a Renault 5 Turbo might be just the ticket I've been doing a bit of reading and apparently these cars do have their problems, but it's generally nothing that can't be sorted at a decent garage with the right parts on hand, which don't cost a fortune anyway. At the end of the day squeezing 120bhp out of a 1.4 pushrod engine is a fairly impressive achievement, so I really do quite fancy owning this car, although not crashing it would appear to be a decent gameplan, as by all accounts they have the trauma resistant properties of a cardboard box. Drop me a PM please snakebite, and we can sort out the sale over the weekend. (Assuming the car isn't a complete bag of spanners, of course.)

    If you squad up with some chums and you're all on Teamspeak, it's possible to do some seriously effective teamplay on BF2142, to the extent that a single 4 or 5 man squad can dominate a game and pretty much ensure victory (assuming that no one's bothering to do the same sort of thing on the other side). As for TF2, I think it's fantastic, a real light-hearted, massively entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable romp. I don't think I've ever seen so much wrongness compressed into so few words as Unisol's post above.
  8. What size engine do these things have in them? How many bhp? 0-60? Top speed? What's the insurance like? Will local garages like Q&S look after them when things go wrong? Is this the one that's based in Ramsey? (Think I've seen it parked up on the Mooragh prom?) If it's the one I'm thinking of it's got some sort of rollcage arrangement installed? May very well be interested.
  9. Yeah it'd be nice if Hollywood did a 'Se7en' a bit more often, but unfortunately that's not how the Hollywood Machine functions these days, especially now there's so much product placement to be done. (Can you imagine Seven getting made in the year 2008?) Will Smith is a bloody good actor, but he sucks corporate cock far too readily, I-Robot, for example, was a good film, once you'd got past the fucking Nike and Audi adverts........ I Am Legend could have been great, he's a good enough actor to carry it (which is no small feat considering how 'alone' much of the story is) - but even though he's one of the most bankable stars in the world, he still played along with setting the entire film up for a Hollywood cop-out ending. The ending was a total turnaround from the book, instead of being a legend because he became such a figure of fear and terror to the 'others' and was therefore killed, he became a legend because he saved the human race instead, and thus loses the entire point of the whole story, it's a fucking shite cop-out and I hate it when films pull tricks like that. I completely share your disappointment, it was a PG-13 cop-out of the lowest order, change the ending to be happy, stick a load of shite CGI bollocks in to make it more of an action film, and generally just shit on the whole fucking thing - well done America! Oh well, at least they don't have genocidal maniacs as presidents...... Oh, hang on.
  10. Next-gen jiggly boobies and hi-def panties! I will reserve my favourite wanking towel pride of place in front of the telly in expectation of this game's arrival.
  11. Funny how? Also, unless you've had the virus yourself, or had someone in your family suffer from it, you won't appreciate just how nasty it can be. Admittedly there may be an aspect of Manx Radio thinking, "Blimey, not much happening today, let's have a spot about the winter vomiting virus again" - but I'd have said it's perfectly responsible journalism to broadcast a few simple pieces of advice that can help prevent and/or contain an outbreak.
  12. More agreemengt from me. The X800 always was a hot running bastard of a card, and some of the fan controllers were a bit timid, so the card would actually overheat before the fan would spin up. One option you do have is to manually set the fan to a higher speed than it'll set itself, run ATI Tool (download link below) and go to Settings > Fan Control. http://www.techpowerup.com/atitool/ (Settings is a button down in the bottom right hand corner of the app window when you launch it, and then you can select Fan Control from the drop down menu.) Manually set the card to something pretty high, such as 80%, ("override fan speeds" and "fixed percentage"), if the fan is working OK you should hear it spin up pretty loudly straight away. The noise might be a bit distracting but if you've got headphones on or the volume turned up, it shouldn't be too noticeable. See if the game still crashes, if it doesn't, then overheating is defintiely your problem. The card itself is plenty powerful enough to run WoW so that shouldn't be an issue. Trying to clean out the dust from the airways (as aleady suggested) is a good idea too.
  13. I'm guessing that you hate someone called Andy Swainston and just post here under that name to make him look like a total cunt. Am I close? I'm Andy Swainston! It's not like it's a unique name. Google manages 21,500 results: http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&q...nston&meta= So your just retarded then? Nope, you're retarded. And what's your point, exactly?

  15. So some kind of mass cull appears to be in order then? Can't we just say they've all got bird flu and 'vanish' them on that basis? Either that or get the fucking guns out. (I don't have any guns, because they're a bit naughty and that, so if anyone wants to lend me a couple (even dog owners!), then I'm well up for it.)
  16. I like dogs, i dislike you. Maybe you should die or your parents should have been matched or neutered. Whilst i'd really not like to hurt an animal, i'd really like to punch you. Fecking Tit. Untill you REALLY know about dogs, stfu and keep your opinions to yourself. Oh btw, don't buy a dog, you're not good enough. Looks like he touched a raw nerve there! Guess you'd be pretty snappy as a dog as well then? I have noticed a kind of synergy when it comes to these kind of 'DOGS ARE FUCKING BRILLIANT!' loonies and their equally dodgy pets. 'I'm almost completely convinced he won't want to kill your child (now or in the future), he might want to try and fuck you, and yes he shits all over the place and his breath smells like death, but overall, he's just playful, oh see how much he likes you when he nuzzles into your crotch and slobbers your jeans in the process, he's just adorable!' I think the two words I'm looking for are 'fuck' and 'off'. There's a whole world full of real people out there, and you won't have to beat them to teach them not to shit on the carpet! (Well, apart from the old Christian Fundamentalist Republicans over in the good olde US of A - but they scarecely qualify as human beings anyway.)
  17. If your father in law had attacked the dog, would you have killed him? We're higher up the food chain. Man bites dog. In an ideal world, every single dog would make a non-scarring attack on a human being, then we could justifiably destroy them all. As an added bonus, our pavements would return to being 100% pavement, as opposed to 95% pavement and 5% dog shit. (See also, playing fields, public parks, glens, and other such areas where one would expect to be able to enjoy the liberty of (OMFG!) 'walking around' without getting stinking shit-encrusted dogshit shoes.) A large part of the problem appears to be that the bigger, nastier, and more capable of leaving behind a trail of horrible shit the dog is, the more neanderthal the owner is, and less inclined to give a fuck about their beloved pet's increasing nuisance status. Can't we have some kind of basic competency test before someone is allowed to buy a dog? 1) Will you exercise your pet regularly so that it doesn't turn into a psychotic ball of pent-up pointy teeth? 2) Will you pick up the horrible shit that your pet will inevitably want to leave in its wake? 3) Will you treat your pet well, as opposed to beating the crap out of it as an easy alternative to beating the crap out of other people? 4) Will you understand that a lot of people really don't care that your pet is 'playful' and thus don't want its stinking slathering jaws and spittle all over them? 5) Will you agree to being randomly humped by members of the public, should you decide that your pet exhibiting the same behaviour is acceptable? It's not so much dogs I have the problem with in the final analysis, they're the victim more than anything else, it's the useless cunts who buy them and then utterly fail to look after them properly who should take a nice long walk off the closest short pier. (Ramsey's pier is pretty long, but it's in such a state of disrepair that any attempt at walking along it would almost inevitably result in a fatal accident in a very short space of time, so twatty dog owners, off you go for a walk, eh?)
  18. I like dogs, i dislike you. Maybe you should die or your parents should have been matched or neutered. Whilst i'd really not like to hurt an animal, i'd really like to punch you. Fecking Tit. Untill you REALLY know about dogs, stfu and keep your opinions to yourself. Oh btw, don't buy a dog, you're not good enough. So what is it that I'm missing that I could REALLY know about dogs? Can you (oh wise one) teach them to scoop their own shite into little plastic bags? Can you teach them to never, ever, rip a child's face off? In the meantime, as per your entirely well reasoned and humanist post, I'll do my best to "die" - whatever the consequences for my "non-dog-family" - heathens that they are, what with their being able to use a toilet and not wanting to hump close family members if they "look just about humpable."
  19. Dogs are vicious pack predators (same as human beings in many ways, which is why dear old "young girl's face destroyer" is able to be "man's best friend" despite being an obvious menace to society) - kill all dogs is my motto, because they're too bloody unpredictable. We've banned Islamic maniac terrorists on the same basis, (bit odd, bit unpredictable), and they have more common sense than your average dog, so why do the dogs get the special treatment? Then again, look at this little cutey! http://www.amarilloanimalcontrol.com/images/dog_bite.jpg
  20. There's a better report here (on IOM Online as well, which makes a change): http://www.iomtoday.co.im/news/Family-esca...laze.3631765.jp And it is a good point about the smoke alarms, it's all very well seeing them attached to the ceilings and thinking, "Well that's us covered then," but if the batteries are flat, then they aren't much use. The best ones to go for are those that are hard wired into the mains, with the battery there simply as a backup for a power cut, these also have the benefit of all being linked together, so if the one downstairs goes off, it'll automatically set off the one upstairs as well. Once they've been fitted you can basically forget about them for five years, at which point the battery should be changed (you should still periodically test the system though). If you're in rented accommodation it's always worth checking that: 1) Smoke alarms are fitted - 2) They've got batteries in - 3) They actually work (badly burning some toast in the vicinity should do the job). (We once lived in a rented house that had three smoke alarms fitted, two of which had badly corroded and leaky batteries in them, and one of which had a flat battery in it, needless to say none of them worked, and the landlord hadn't checked before we moved in.) Same goes for home owners as well of course, it's just that private landlords can be a little, ahem, slack on such matters. I suppose if you were able-bodied and lived in a bungalow you could be a bit more chilled out, since you're never really faced with a scary drop out a high window: "Jump and save yourself Clarissa!" "But it's three feet down to the ground, I daren't, I might crack a toenail!"
  21. Hi there, as per the title really, apart from the sea terminal, where are there public access wireless networks in Douglas? They don't have to be free, it'd be OK if it was a cafe or something where you buy an expensive sandwich and some healthy juice type drink, and in return you get to jack your laptop into the wireless network matrix that the establishment provides. It's the sort of thng I imagine posh coffee shops might provide. Cheers!
