  1. Why is there a Tesco in China? It's taking over the world, seriously. ---------------- Now playing: [spunge] - Some Suck, Some Rock via FoxyTunes
  2. I don't own an iPod, so I assume you mean MP3 player, that would be about 270. On Winamp, I have 2880 songs. Or 7days, 21:49:36 hours. Or 18.61GB. ---------------- Now playing: Radiohead - Subterranean Homesick Alien via FoxyTunes
  3. "Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down, never gonna run around and desert you..." ---------------- Now playing: Radiohead - Electioneering via FoxyTunes
  4. That food looks gawwwwwjussssss And no I'm not fat. Looking forward to following the trip, see what wacky stuff they have in China, I'd love to visit asia. ---------------- Now playing: Radiohead - Karma Police via FoxyTunes
  5. The others are right, you have to be 16 to be employed formally. There are ways around it, though, for example, you could ask familky members, friends, aunts uncles etc if they can give you an 'unskilled' job. What I mean by this is, if anybody you know owns a business, they might be able to employ you doing something which dosn't require any special skills, for example stacking shelves, sweeping, office dogsbody. Apart from that unfortunatly there isn't much in the way of work for under 16s. A paper round might be a good idea. This site will hopefully give you some help and ideas about certain things which you will have to decide on in the near future. Good luck with your GCSE course in the next two years! http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/EducationAndLearning/14To19/index.htm ---------------- Now playing: Biffy Clyro - Now I'm Everyone via FoxyTunes
  6. I love how it looks as if it's going to topple over. I know it shouldn't but it looks really cool. Sometimes a long straight drop is more intimidating than a steep twisty one. Like your waiting to hit the splash at the bottom. ---------------- Now playing: Justice - Phantom via FoxyTunes
  7. The name seems a bit innuendo. It should be called 'Panty Draw Prowler'. Much more catchy.
  8. Lmao I love sea side 'parks' like this. Height of British culture I would be too scared of the operator to ask to get on, you have guts! ^ They have those signs EVERYWHERE!
  9. Mine was Corkscrew at Alton Towers :O There are rumours that they might be taking it down! http://www.towersalmanac.com/index.php?show_story=349
  10. Great photo TR! Thanks for helping the UK tourism industry Someone a few pages back asked if anybody had any tips for saving money. My tip is if you want to save money, don't go to London, it's by far the most expensive place in the UK. Personally I'm not a fan of London, the times I've been there I've been left with clogged airways from the pollution, and it's a very dirty city. I don't think it represents the UK to the best it can be. I'd recommend anybody who is going to visit the UK, to visit the North as well, if you have to visit London. It's much nicer, people are much friendlier, it's cheaper, the food is better, it's cleaner. Basically it beats the south hands down, but the south gets more publicity because of all the rich businessmen live in London. Etc etc. Oh yeah almost forgot, random statement, my brother used to be one of the Queens guards, in the bearskin hats and whatever. I really enjoyed reading this though, you've shown London in a good light, and made me want to visit Paris again. Did you know that the Eiffel tower is the most disappointing tourist attraction in Europe? I enjoyed it when I went there, but I was 3, go figure So yeah, thanks for putting the effort into this, because it's made it very enjoyable
  11. I couldn't walk after Nemesis. My legs were shaking too much And Rita, Kumali (a smooth SLC) Well most coasters, I dont go on them that often so they give me a rush
  12. I forgot to add before, that I saw Kate Nash at 3volution festival in Newcastle, towards the end of May, and she was terrible then. I'm not a fan of her music, but I agree that her songs are good, and she is good on recordings, but she sounded washed out and tired live, and it wasn't just the acoustics. Everybody I spoke to, including friends who are big fans of her agreed that she wasn't as good as she could have been live. I also saw Does it offend you, yeah?, Crystal Castles and CSS who were all AMAZING that day, so it wasn't just a crap festival
  13. Wow that looked like you had fun I wish I could have gone to Glasto, I would have liked to see KoL and Massive Attack. KoL looked really good on the TV, but I know that's totally different to being there live. Do you know if Massive Attacks set was only 35mins? If so I would have thought that it was longer. Looking forward to the other updates!
  14. I'm not celebrating, for obvious reasons, but about 10 mins from where I live, and near my school is George Washington's original house, in Washington. They usually have party's and stuff. Just thought I'd share that.
  15. This is a nasty accident, and you can't blame anybody else apart from the kid who ran under the train. Everybody is saying that the parents are going to sue, etc, but just because a lot of people would sue in a situation like this doesn't mean the parents aren't going to sue. I would hope that they think rationally without any body else's persuasion and realise that it was their sons fault and nobody else's. And hopefully not sue anybody. Surely anybody who was involved in the incident would be sorry enough for the family, without money being involved. Then again, in the UK, a child fell down three stairs in a school playground, hit his head and unfortunatly died. His parents sued the school, the headmaster of the school was locked up, and the primary school was shut down. The school was in a village, and all the children had to be split up and sent to other schools further away. And do you really think that all that could "repay" for the loss of their son? I doubt it.
  16. I'm in the north east of the UK. My 'Local park' is a typical British sea side fun fair. It's called 'Ocean Beach' despite the lack of an ocean, it's on the North Sea. That's at South Shields. But it has two credits! That's about 20 mins away, depending how I get there. My Local major parks are Lightwater Valley, which is about 40 mins away, and Flamingo Land which is about 2 hours away, but that's because it's awkward to get to. ---------------- Now playing: Coldplay - Lovers In Japan/Reign Of Love via FoxyTunes
  17. Somebody PLEASE do a Crepe photo TR! That would be awesome! That said, I hope you have a great time, I'm sure you will, those PAX coasters look INSANE! Enjoy the European style of driving ---------------- Now playing: Mr Scruff - Sweet Smoke via FoxyTunes
  18. Ace of spades - Motorhead Whiplash - Metallica Monkey Wrench - Foo Fighters Or anything by Daft Punk, The Chemical Brothers etc. ---------------- Now playing: Radiohead - Bodysnatchers via FoxyTunes
  19. About 12 hours. I had a thumping headache when I woke up though. ---------------- Now playing: Pendulum - Propane Nightmares via FoxyTunes
  20. How to create: Your Debut Album! 1 - Go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band. 2 - Go to Random quotations: http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3 The last four words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album. If you want to do this again, you'll hit refresh to generate new quotes, because clicking the quotes link again will just give you the same quotes over and over again. 3 - Go to flickr's "explore the last seven days" http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/ Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover. Put it all together, that's your debut album. My Debut Album: Name: Speech and Reality Album Name: Due to our efforts Album Picture: http://www.flickr.com/photos/mademoisellehelenina/2597030509 ---------------- Now playing: Blink 182 - Carousel via FoxyTunes
  21. I like! I've used firefox for about 4 years now, and I love the default skin, it's very crisp and simplistic. I've also noticed it's a lot faster loading web pages and all my add-ons currently work, which I'm pleased about 5/5* ---------------- Now playing: Coldplay - Yellow via FoxyTunes
  22. Hey, Sorry to be nit-picking, but on the index, Lightwater Valley is labelled as "Lightwater Valley, Blackpool, Lancashire, UK" when I know for a fact that it isn't . When you click the link, however, it is displayed correctly as "North Stainley, Ripon, North Yorkshire " I know it's only a minor issue, but I thought it might help with the search. Well done, Robb, this is a great function and is really helpful. Good job, have a cookie ---------------- Now playing: Feeder - Who's The Enemy via FoxyTunes

  24. My last GCSE exam tomorrow! And it's an easy one! Then prom on friday! Then two and a half months of break! Yay i'm looking forward to this ---------------- Now playing: Feeder - Heads Held High via FoxyTunes
