Re: speakers advice...

I've got a pair of the M-Audio Studiophile AV speakers hooked up to my TV in the kitchen (18' x 12') and they sound tremendous for the price. There would be absolutely no problem filling a room with sound!! The only drawback is that there is a noticeable hum when the source is turned off so you will...

Re: Lets discuss illegal drugs - and legal ones too

Legalise it, regulate it and tax it... but not too much :D Weed could be handed out to unemployed violent teenagers who will then stay in all the time chillin' instead of wandering the steets terrorising little old ladies.

Re: bin Laden is DEAD!

I would think that most governments, particularly the American government would have learnt by now that if they make things up or lie about things such as those listed by whispercat, the truth will eventually come out and they will be left looking like fools. I can't see any reason why this killing ...

Re: bin Laden is DEAD!

Since there is no such group as al-Quaeda, this is quite funny. It's probably another fake posting by the CIA who have already admitted to posting previous videos of Bin Laden. Makes sense, since Obama has had trouble selling his staged killing of Sunday night. Too many skeptics, and the story of w...

Re: bin Laden is DEAD!

As far as I am aware, Bin Laden officially declared war on the US. If so he's no longer a criminal but an enemy 'soldier' not only that, he urged Moslems everywhere to attack America in any way they could. In my eyes that makes it perfectly acceptable to shoot him dead without a trial. When the IRA ...

It is a shame that politics is so polarised, I suppose that it may be because only the extremists on left and right are passionate enough about their beliefs to make a lot of noise.
