If They Pull A Knife...

I did my National Service in the Police Force.

They taught me that the when dealing with a potentially hostile subject, the Law demands that I be prepared to respond with Necessary Force.

If he tries to punch you, you are trained to respond with Unarmed Tactics.
If he pulls a knife on you, you are trained to respond with your night-stick or T-baton.
If he pulls a gun, shoot the bastard.
it's what you're supposed to do.

The Law. The Book. The Man.

Call them what you like, they all mean the same thing: "The Ones Who Make The Rules."

They tell you that if you live a good life, fight the good fight, care for your neighbours, stay honest, kind and considerate, you'll be alright cos you've got your ass covered going by 'The Book' and you haven't done anything wrong. Keep it up. We'll start singing songs together about 'Mr Bluebird' and pink flamingos in tutus will dance around you with silk streamers trailing from their beaks.

There's another set of rules.

The Old School. Ghetto. The Code. The Brotherhood. Street Rules.

After I graduated from Police Training, I got thrown into the street.
Fuck It. I didn't learn these rules from my fellow police officers. It's just a metaphor. I've known and lived by these rules all my life. My eyes are filling up with tears as I type this. This is MY MORAL CODE. My belief in this is stronger than any religion can ever imbue into my soul. I've always lived by it without knowing I was. I don't need a set of rules to tell me what's right and wrong.

When you face a potentially hostile subject you PROTECT YOUR BROTHER. You do this by taking the subject out quickly because he might hurt your brother.



Someone had a gun pointed at my back.
But I see his reflection.
I ducked into the shadows. I can still see him.
He sees my shadow.
He can't aim at me properly.

He's moved his gun.

He's pointed it at my family.
Please God. Grant me the self-control to pull back in time.

The video

Firstly, I did not write those lyrics. They're from this band...

My fave version. Loads a little slow but it's worth it.

Bloody Awesome Lyrics

//Yes, the same guys who gave us Lightning Crashes//

Run To The Water - Live

Oh desert speak to my heart
Oh woman of the earth
Maker of children who weep for love
Maker of this birth
til your deepest secrets are known to me
I will not be moved
I will not be moved

Don't try to find the answer
When there ain't no question here
Brother let your heart be wounded
And give no mercy to your fear

Adam and Eve live down the street from me
Babylon is every town
It's as crazy as it's ever been
Love's a stranger all around

In a moment we lost our minds here
And lay our spirit down
Today we lived a thousand years
All we have is now

Run to the water
And find me there
Burnt to the core but not broken
We'll cut through the madness
Of these streets below the moon
These streets below the moon

And I will never leave you

til we can say,
This world was just a dream
We were sleepin' now we are awake
til we can say

In a moment we lost our minds here
And dreamt the world was round
A million mile fall from grace
Thank God we missed the ground

Run to the water
And find me there
Burnt to the core but not broken
We'll cut through the madness
Of these streets below the moon
With a nuclear fire of love in our hearts

Yeah, I can see it now lord
Out beyond all the breakin' of waves
And the tribulation
Its a place and the home of ascended souls
Who swam out there in love!

Run to the water
And find me there
Burnt to the core but not broken
We'll cut through the madness
Of these streets below the moon
With a nuclear fire of love in our hearts

Rest easy baby, rest easy
And recognize it all as light and rainbows
Smashed to smithereens and be happy
Run to the water (and find me there)
Run to the water

WoW Terms Gone Wrong

Just a little pet peeve I have about people who say/type the wrong thing all the time in WoW and wonder why they're confusing everybody else.

  1. Firstly it's spelt roGUe not roUGe. Rouge is women's makeup.
  2. Rogue is pronounced 'Roe-g', not 'roooj'.
  3. Gnome has a silent 'G'. It's pronounced 'Nome', not 'ge-nome'.
  4. 'Proc' is short for 'process'. Hence, PPM stands for Processes Per Minute. You do not 'take 2.5 seconds to proc a frostbolt.' There is no such thing as a 'Proc Spec warrior'
  5. 'Prot' stands for 'Protection'. There is no such thing as 'Protections Per Minute'
  6. Threat is pronounced 'TH-Rat' not Treat. There is no 'Treat Meter' except possibly on halloween.
  7. There is an H in Hearth. You do not Heart back to your inn.
  8. Garrote is not pronounced Karate. 'Gare-rut'.
That's all for now

Yes! THREE exclamation marks!

For those who don't know, my computer died. No res.

Have spanking new 2nd hand computer. I've stopped shivering and the chills are ebbing.

Flu Sucks

I have the flu. I've got it BAD. Cough, blocked nose, really sore throat, green phlegm and worse of all BODYACHE. I've got the works. Now, I'm a tough guy. I'm so tough, the cats don't piss at the spots I've just pissed on. If I piss on a cat it's never gonna mate again. WTF am I going on about?

Ok so anyway this flu has got me beat. Here's a checklist so you know whether your flu is as bad as mine and you should go to work or just curl up in bed and give in to debilitation.
  1. Your body ache is so bad, your left testicle hurts.
  2. Your mum places a pink Hello Kitty tissue box by your bedside and you don't mind.
  3. You try to stand up and you fall over from giddiness.
  4. You try to stand up again and the muscles in your legs give out.
  5. Smoking seems like a bad idea.
  6. Beer sounds like a bad idea.
  7. You can't tell who's calling your cell phone cos your eyes can't focus.
  8. The residential handicapped parking lot now has your name on it.
  9. You wonder why December is so hot and your friends tell you it's the coldest December in years...
  10. You actually look forward to eating porridge.
  11. You look forward to going back to work.
  12. Even the thought of jerking off is too tiring.
  13. You take an hour to write a post with 15 points and only end up with 13.
I'm tired. Goodnight

edit: You know you're really sick when you try to set a date to get laid with fruits...
