I loved the bit about making the new ciggy buying licence application as complicated as possible - will only lead to two things

 

1 more folks buying hookey fags from a bloke down the pub

2 make me loads of money offering a licence application completion service for those not up to the job lol should keep me in fags all year round :D

Here, they're trying to fight smoking by placing absurdly high taxes on cigarettes.

Effect: most people smoke contraband. Ukrainian or Russian, most of them real nails ("Prima" for example). But this is a socialist country, y'know. They didn't officially teach us to think for ourselves, did they.

For what it's worth the taxes here on cigs are bad as well. $2 for state taxes, and $.69 (IIRC, it might be a few cents +/-) per pack.

 

Makes me glad I don't smoke.

 

bad? folks over here would bite your hand off for tax like that on ciggies, in the UK average pack of 20 is $7 in tax :D

wait... what? :unsure: are you talking about needing some sort of license to buy ciggarettes?? seriously.. wtf?? :mellow: if that's true, i guess the north sea will be filled with boats full of smuggled smokes again lol

 

wich reminds me...since i'm coming over this week, anyone after a carton of reasonable priced continental smokes? :P :P

 

 

Also,Belgian Cutoms/ABX logiqtics...again lazy *fruitcage* bastards! got some gear that's been sitting there since the 6th of february, despite emailing all the *beep* they wanted me to sent them, multiple times, i called them today asking what the hell was the deal.... they answer i got from some barely dutch speaking tard was, it's not been checked yet. upon asking when they would possible find some time getting of their fat *albatross* and crosschecking an email with the atual package (well, a little more polite...), i got : "Who knows, maybe this week, maybe not..."

 

<_<

BS... nothing takes over 3 weeks, ffs, and if it does, then whatever the hell you'r doing, you'r doing it wrong! DHL/fedex/TNT manages to go pick up my *beep* at my favourite HK shop, drop it of at their depot, throw it one a plane, fly it all the *fruitcage* way over here and deliver it to my door, in 2, maybe 3 days tops. And these tards are telling me they can't check one *fruitcage* parcel that is delivered to their lap, so to speak, in 3 weeks time??!!!

 

I swear to *insert religious upperbeing of choice here*, if i ever win that euromillions lottery, i'm investing in some sort of high altitude flying bomberplane, and a couple of bombs to go with it, and Brussels will be a little black hole richer somewhere <_<

 

I just hope this doesn't take the 2,5 months time it took them last time they got involved in an order,to get me my stuff....

My hernia! Sweet Jesus, *fruitcage*! If I'm lucky and get surgery in the next three months, I can give up skirmishing until the end of the bloody year.

For twenty four years I managed to avoid this kind of ######. Twenty fifth year comes, I develop a friggin' third nut. *beep*! *beep*! *beep*!

that idiot band that decided it would be a good idea of covering that *fruitcage* bloody annoying song "under my umbrella" from what's her name....

 

after months of torment of having been forced to listen to that bloody awfull song 5 to 7 times a day on the radio at work, i can now look forward to few more months of these *fruitcage*wits and their equally awfull cover of that irritating song :angry:

 

I don't know the band, but whoever they are, they should be shot on sight!

Strange marks(started out as heat blisters now they are like open sores) apearing on your face for no apparent reason. God I love biological warfear.

 

Figured out it was chemical burns from using nitromors & a wire brush. How stupid do I feel for taking the visor off because it was steaming up.

 

Anyway, being at work and still having no money despite it being pay day. Depts suck biger than Team Ammerica.

Managers who keep *fruitcage* about with your priorities 'cos some other manager has been running some half arsed project for months without telling us and has invented a great new process that completely ignores the evidence in front of their goddamn noses and *fruitcage*s up other people's work, adds man hours and produces wonky data, all because they couldn't be arsed to talk to me for five *fruitcage* minutes where I would have straightened the *fruitcage* thing out, and avoided having to travel to Norway and back for a month only to come home to another big pile of ###### some other manager has come up with in my absence that'll take weeks to sort out.

 

Walking into a meeting of a group of managers the other day to hear them discussing something that they've apparently been debating for months, and which I recommended two *fruitcage* years ago and can guarantee will save the company thousands of pounds, being able to settle all their niggling issues and persuading them to finally give it the green light slightly makes up for it, but not much.

Having my boss tell a customer that a particular special event night failing was my fault, when he outright refused to get any flyers made up or let me do any street marketing....

 

 

So I quit!

 

 

Now he has a bar, and no head barman, and no cocktail talent.

 

 

Sucker!

My rant concerns Chineese people. I'm not a racist bloke, these particular ones are just gigantic poopies. Asshattery knows no race or creed, it seems.

 

I'm currentley crashing at a freinds house, and her room is in an exteneion, with a thin wall. Next to the living room.

 

Last night, and this night, the chineese guy who lives in the house has had his mates round. Being noisy, and staying till 3/4am being noisy pricks who don't care they're keeping us up. From what I've been told, they do this on weekdays with alarming regularity; IE, every goddamned day. 'till 3am, sometimes later. usualy deafeningly loud.

 

The wall seperating the extension and the living room amy as well not be there, it's that thin. Sound travels STRAIGHT through it.

 

It's driving me nuts and this is the second night I've been here. My friend has it Every. Goddam. Night.

 

I hate ignorant, loud, asshats. Especialy these ones.

 

*seethes*

 

I REALY wish I'd brought my TM sig 226 with me. It'd be worth it. No, realy.

 

 

EDIT: Wordfilter fails it. poopsies? jesus, man... =/

Had us 2 power cuts today! One while surfing Arnies, and the second before the interweb had come back on and i was playing Dawn Of War.

 

Quite inconvenient!!

 

 

 

The "young" Chinese crew at the casino i used to work at were pretty annoying... All thier parents were regular big spenders to the degree that they'd get a free meal for thier family once a week and had been for years, but thier kids just used to come in after the clubs kicked them out at 3am and make a mess and be loud and irritating. Mess included at any given time; spilt beer, broken glass, discarded chicken wing bones, spilt sauces and soggy wet newspaper that they'd tried to stem the tides of wasted Stella with.

 

Also got to say, the parents were top notch people. (Good tippers too!)

Simple solution, get two speakers, press them up against the wall. Put in some Megadeath or whatever. At 3am turn up to 10 turn on and go out.

MDK, if it's that loud, report it. Not sure what the actual limit is, but I've had a stern word from the wonderful fuzz for playing music too loud. Think it's after 11pm that kicks in, not sure when in the morning it's okay to whack the voulume back up.

 

Had an amusing run in with the police tonight actually. I matched the description of someone they were looking for, so got stopped and questioned. After a few minutes, I noticed someone come flying round the corner, stop running as he saw the police, and walk past. Turns out that was the guy they were after, and he walked straight past them :lol: Rant regards them as well actually, the fact so many of them don't believe that due to my condition, I genuinely don't know what I'm doing sometimes. *fruitcage*s me off bigstyle.

 

"Do you know why we stopped you?"

 

".. honestly no idea"

Trust me, if it was me, I'd have gone nuts by now or gotten the guy that has the mates round kicked out.

 

Unfortunately, it's all happening at a friends house near london.

 

It's not Loud as in the neighbours can hear it, but rather A rowdy bunch of mates loud. Fine,e xcept the the wall separating them from my friend is so thin that they may as well be in the same room. Image trying to sleep with a bunch of people gibbering away in chineese (no offence, but at 3am with no sleep, thats all I could hear :P) singing, bashing tables, playing computer games with the volume cranked up...

 

While you can get to sleep, you're only left with a few hours of good quality sleep, if that. No wonder said mate is a bit grouchy at the moment :(

Might as well add mine...

 

I'd been noticing my PC gradually getting slower and slower for a while.

I have a 160gb portable disk drive which I take with me to work and gets filled up with all the software, movies and other junk I get given at work.

When I get home I usually just create a directory on my HDD called "Junk" and then copy everything off the portable HDD onto my PC.

As a result, I know my HDD has been filled up with all sorts of stuff.

 

So, I decided to buy myself a huge 1000gb HDD and a USB case for it.

I knew it'd take ages to copy all the junk from the My Documents folder on my PC onto the new USB drive so I'd been putting it off for months.

The 1000gb USB drive has been sat there since before xmas, unused. Newly partitioned and formatted. Ready to go.

 

So, last week I finally copied everything onto the USB HDD. Took hours.

After backing up all my files, emails and favourites I formatted the HDD of my PC and reinstalled all the bits and bobs without any problems.

 

Plugged in the USB HDD, went to copy the stuff back to the PC and...... Oh dear! :(

The bloody-rotten USB HDD that was bought for this specific purpose and has sat here for 3 months doing not very much, makes a loud screeching noise then starts to make a noise like there's a table-tennis ball bouncing around inside it.

Bloody marvellous! :angry:

Every bit of software I've been given, every document from every job I've done, every picture I've taken, every file I've ever downloaded is all up the sh*tter.

 

Bloody marvellous. :angry:

Might have been an idea to check the new copy before deleting the old one?

 

 

"Backup? But I've never had trou(@:{}@>:{"

Oh, I did.

 

It took 2 or 3 days to get around to formatting my PC and, during that time, I had the UBS HDD plugged into my laptop and living-room PC with no problems.

Plugged the drive back into my PC and it was fine then, when I tried copying data, it snuffed it.

silly idea, but i remember about beeing able to stick HDs in the deepfreezer for a while, sort of a last attempt at recovering the data on it, sometime you get a few hours of runtime out of them after beeing forzen apperently. might be worth a shot

 

check google, i'm sure you will find some stuff on the subject. i remember reading about it several months ago.

Yep, if a platter has become warped and jammed or something, it's become too tight somehow, freezing it will shirnk it just enough to get your data off it before they seize up again.
