    So heard all this gossip tonight about this shooting that happened at the local rugby playing fields. People were saying this guy had been shot in the chest 5 times by some nutter in a mask on a bike. Really odd cos we never have crime like that happen here.

    It gives you a reason to stay inside and play more video games. [​IMG]

    ^ very good point [​IMG]

    When I was a little kid I lived in a town called Garland. It was/is the redneck town of maine. There were always drunks and parties, and we heard gunshots in the middle of the night a few times. The poulation couldn't have been more than 500 people for the whole town, though. probably less than half that.

    PS (off topic) I found an 11 year old usb compaq keyboard, and im using it with my wii right now! I'm surprised it works!

    Most things like this are crime, drug and gang related. Usually normal members of the public dont get effected.

    Still sucks though.
