RuneScape Information

  1. Exactly. He's one of the few Aussies able to swing that ball, and believe me, it's going to swing. Good toss to win though, the head groundsman reckons there'll be some serious turn by the end of day 3. Wouldn't want to batting last on this one. Teeg
  2. Here I am in sunny Cardiff; in work though, unfortunately, not at Sofia Gardens. Historic day, the first ever test match in Wales. Plenty of Aussies about in town last night. It was "g'day" this and "g'day" that, but we bought them a few beers and had a great time. Teeg PS - Why do Australians answer their own questions. For example "What's your favourite colour Blue?" "What's your favourite passtime Sport?" "What's your name Sheila?"
  3. Short answer - No, but. Long answer - Yes, however.
  4. Heaven forfend that I split hairs or anything, but: com·mu·nism (k?m'y?-n?z'?m) n. A theoretical economic system characterized by the collective ownership of property and by the organization of labor for the common advantage of all members. Communism A system of government in which the state plans and controls the economy and a single, often authoritarian party holds power, claiming to make progress toward a higher social order in which all goods are equally shared by the people.The Marxist-Leninist version of Communist doctrine that advocates the overthrow of capitalism by the revolution of the proletariat. [French communisme, from commun, common, from Old French, from Latin comm?nis; see commune2.] The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition Copyright © 2009 by Houghton Mifflin Company. It seems that communism can be both an economic system AND a system of government.
  5. Nooooooooo!!!! Just when I'd bought out the entire stock of donkey heads. :wall: D'oh Teeg
  6. Hmmm... 1. I believe you're only commenting on censorship involving swearing, nudity and violence. What about censorship of material which may be harmful to the national security? Good idea? Bad idea? Just let every country in the world know all the security secrets of YOUR country?? 2. Do any of you honestly believe that you should be able to say whatever you want, whenever you want, to whomever you want? IMHO that way lies anarchy. 3. Do any of you with children believe they should watch anything, listen to anything? At any age? If so I feel sorry for your children, if not where does the "censorship" begin and end? 4. Not too sure about the nudity issue. You can be arrested for being nude in public (oops nearly wrote pubic!!), via public decency violations, but can see any form of nudity in art galleries, museums etc. Apparently "art" is fine, whereas public nudity is not! I can't see the logic in that, personally, although I suppose you have the choice of viewing art but no choice if Joe Bloggs streaks down the street in front of you! (Although I wouldn't complain if it was Angelina Jolie!!) The problem is not censorship per se, but the amount/form. Some censorship is essential (national security) whereas other forms are moral and open to interpretation (public nudity, swearing). When I was a lot younger, I thought that censorship was totally wrong in all forms. Then I grew up and realise that some forms were needed, although some censorship was still over the top. Parental control cannot cover all types of censorship, what children learn amongst their friends cannot be controlled, they can hear far more in the schoolyard than they could on TV. I've started to ramble. Basically, not all forms of censorship are needed and not all forms are bad. The main questions are where does one draw the line; and who do we choose to draw that line? Happy to discuss Teeg
  7. Last Chaos Elemental Post was this. "Red Raktuber" obviously = Red October the submarine as everybody else as already surmised (so why did I write it then??) "ventricle of darkness" may = heart of darkness, a book by Conrad which, if my memory serves me right, is about a steam boat going up river to save somebody or other... I simplify because it's been a long time since I read it and I need coffee anyway.
  8. Consciousness. I don't mean being awake or asleep!! The very ability to perceive feelings of happiness, misery, envy or love etc., has led man to try and define these emotions. Instead of basic instincts driving humans on; food, shelter, a mate, we now want to have what the next man has (or better). Yes, call it desire, greed or envy, but it all boils down to the same thing. Instead of being happy with our lot, accepting that this is it and getting on with enjoying it, we want more and more, see others with more and more, see advertisements promising more and more; AND WE BELIEVE IT! When people talk of "bettering themselves" what exactly do they mean? What is the benchmark they are using? Everyone should try to be the best THEY can, and not look in envy at others. Make your own decisions, that's probably the one true freedom we all have. I've ranted on long enough. Need coffee.
  9. Sorry everyone, totally off topic, but am I the only one who cringed when he read this. Cruch Attack... OUCH Teeg
  10. Well IMHO Runecrafting is definitely the harder. Xp rate only gives the theoretical speed. During my race to 99 slayer I slayed for hour after hour, it's easy to mentally switch off. For me, Runecrafting is incredibly boring, I find it difficult to spend more than 2 hours in any session, running back and forth, filling and emptying pouches etc., etc. So, yes, whilst Runecrafting is faster per hour, slayer is easier to do for much longer periods of time. Again, this is only MY opinion, obviously. Teeg
  11. Q: How can you tell a Scotsmans clan? A: Put your hand up his kilt, if he's got a quarterpounder with cheese he's a McDonald. Hmm. On second thoughts, you probably shouldn't use that one!

    JAFFA CAKES

    OK Having worked in the "industry" some time ago, I think I can furnish you with the answer. The difference is based on what happens when the items go stale. Cakes get hard when they go stale. Biscuits get soft when they go stale. Jaffa Cakes are in fact cakes, as the sponge gets hard when stale. Now the science bit! This is based on the ERH (Equilibrium Relative Humidity) of the various products. Cakes generally have an ERH of 70 - 85%, some as high as 90%. After a time the cakes lose moisture to the air, making them harder. Biscuits, on the other hand, have a much lower ERH, normaly in the 60%'s. These gain water from the air over time, making them softer. Hope this helps.
  13. Hmm. Firstly on topic. The reason I agree that scum like Savage should be banned from Britain is that we breed enough scum of our own, without importing any more!! Many countries limit who enters their borders; convicted criminals, refugees and other "undesirables". Why not have a go at the likes of the USA, Australia, France etc. for this "infringement of liberties"? Now to the thread. Marvellous fun reading through this, from the guy who thinks kids can catch "gayness", to the bloke who thinks that everyone who disagrees with him is a bigot. I did laugh, though, at the Americans who think that, just because your Government says so, there is a separation between church and state. What's that little phrase that's printed on your money? What's on the seal that sits behind every judge in every courthouse? Oh yes, I remember, "IN GOD WE TRUST"!
  14. Just a point of information; Stephen Hawking is ENGLISH, he was born in Oxford, England. Check your history to find if "almost every intelligent person comes from the states", I think you'll be unpleasantly surprised!
  15. Stance: Not a problem to me personally, although I don't think sexual orientation should play a part in a game. Religion: Umm... Jedi Orientation: Straight, although why this matters is beyond me.
