    Dubstep and Techno records for sale, UK only.

    Hey guys, thought I'd return to spam you with some ebay listings. Friend of mine is selling his record collection, most of them hardly even played so I said I'd help him out by harassing you to purchase them. The two I suppose you lot would be interested in are the "Roots of Dubstep" double...

    Rationality!

    It what you have to think about before you can think about anything else, isn't it? Do you believe in the things you believe in because they make you feel good, because they help you fit in, because they "seem" to make sense... or because you actually think they're true...

    Adult careers advice

    I hate my job (invoice clerk), but I have no idea what else I could do to make money instead. I'd quite like to do something where I'm working with other people, maybe in training or something. (Don't want to be a teacher tho, 'cause I can stand kids). Anyway... teenagers have have those...

    Guinness red

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/7106277.stm I tried that Guinness Red and it tastes weird and watered down. Some marketing muppet has given them terrible advice. I'm quite concerned as well that at some point in the future Guinness may even go bust!

    Is this nature or technology? Dunno. Anyways, I don't really eat that well, and I was wondering if these were actually of any use at all.
