The Rant Thread
« on: February 16, 2007, 04:25:54 PM »

This thread is to pull a Balgy, and to let loose all your pent up rage.

None of this though, please:  :knob:

The rule is that this: :tantrum: Has to be included with every rant. Just because. :icon_razz:



I'll go first. I'm in the market for some new shoes, and I've specifically targeted Vans' slip ons. They look awesome and I got really excited when I heard they made custom shoes. So, I thought I'd go ahead and try it out. I spent about an hour before I finally tweaked the options to suit my perfect shoe, and looking at it, I loved it. So I happily go to the checkout and start filling out my details. But then at the bottom of the page, in small print, is

"PLEASE NOTE: We do not ship internationally. Orders with shipping addresses located outside the United States will be cancelled."


GAHHH! All that time wasted!!! :tantrum:

Thanks, but nah. Can't wait that long. I think I'll just settle for the black and white ones down in the Toon. I am geordie after all.  :toothy11: (...no geordie smiley :P )

OK...reason for ranting... -intentionally stubs his toe-  :tantrum:

Vans are sucky crud*, buy Campers - £90 of the finest trainers known to man. That is all.

My cat has had a dump and I am on poo patrol.  :tantrum:

I rediscovered the black and white checkerboard vans slipons about 10 yrs ago, and I simply wear them 'til they're dead, then buy a new pair.  They last about two years.  Incidentally, Ridgemont High was filmed at Van Nuys High, which was my rival high school growing up.  Half my friends went there.

Then folks started calling me Encino Man because that's where I grew up.   :tantrum:

The questions we should be asking are these:
Does it have dungeons?
Does it have dragons?
Does it have transients who kill things for money?  Do you roll a d20?

Got a DVD recorder with VCR so i thought happy days, not i can back up my old video's as you can't buy them on DVD.  :icon_rabbit:

First one i tryed is one i really wanted to do and it's copyed protected.  :tantrum:
Some are fuzzy because they are so old and multy heads pick up all the badness on the tape while an old VCR would show a better picture.  :pain10:
And one tape snaped when i wound it to the end to make sure it was running ok, i fixed it and backed it up and when i rewound it the other end snapped so i had to fix it again...  :tantrum:

To get an idea of the age of some, they predate cert's or are X rate for horror like the hammer horror one,s.  :icon_rr:

I've been feeling really unwelcome over at FOD absolutely nobody ever responds to any of my posts as if they wish I wasn't there or something that's really been pissing me off. I've just been feeling lonely and unloved which, in turn, makes me want to post less. You'd think people would be more friendly considering the tone of most of my recent posts but I bet they didn't even bother to bloody read them.

Oh well, here's the obligatory  :tantrum: thing but I don't think it'll achieve much. I feel more depressed than angry :(.

 :sign5:

oops.  wrong smiley...  where's the "yeah that" smiley??

Anyway, Balgin, please don't take it personally.  There's some weird lull in the FoD right now, there really isn't a lot going on there.

I think the longtimers have gotten to know you over the past couple of years, and you are accepted and valued.

So, when is this lull going to vanish, and when are we gonna get new heresy and hasslefree stuff!!??   :tantrum:

Bah.  I've had very few hits on my Cheddarmonger test, but I don't feel neglected.  Too much...

Phew I thought it was just me experiencing a lull over there but I came back after not going on for a couple of days and it's exploded back to life. Lady Kei and Inso are back it seems as though it's galvanised others. Let's get posting!  :mumum:
