    While Max's probable-trolling is almost entirely bollocks, Manson was undoubtedly the one who ended the hippie dream, overnight. Firstly, anyone who thinks, in the pre-Helter Skelter years, he was on the CIA's radar as a dangerous cult leader has been suckered in by Manson's own patter. He liked to claim he was the ultimate Godfather and puppetmaster, but in truth, he was just a grotty low-level drug dealer. The two less-famous murders he carried out before the Summer of '69 were petty squabbles over drug money. He was a wannabe musician career criminal with a drug habit and paranoid schizophrenia, and there was no great plan, other than to fuck and steal and party, until he started believing the Beatles were talking to him through their albums, and through the madness, and his rage at being knocked back for a record deal, 'Helter Skelter' was born. But the Summer of Love spirit was killed by the Manson murders. Sure, hippies were a thorn in the side of the machine, but what the Manson Family did was make them dangerous. There's a small paragraph in Peter Biskind's Easy Riders, Raging Bulls, which covers the movie scene of the late 60's and early 70's, where a bunch of celebrities at the time -- Jack Nicholson, Margo Kidder, Spielberg maybe; that lot -- were having a gathering by one of their beach-front houses in LA. As always, the door was open, and everything was super relaxed. Then, a group of barefoot girls wandered along from the beach, went into the house and wordlessly began rearranging the furniture, and moving around the photos on the piano as someone was trying to play. It was a bit creepy, but only a square would say anything to that effect. Where's the love in that? Some months later, after Tate and Co were murdered, they realised they'd been visited by the Manson Family, and nobody's door was ever left unlocked again. When the killers were still yet to be found, the fear and paranoia in the liberal world was white-hot. The partying stopped altogether. When they were found, everyone in Hollywood had a story about a brush with the Manson Family; everyone was 'supposed to be at the Tate house that night, but had had a feeling...' And everyone re-evaluated their behaviour of casual, open-door free-love. Who's to say the girl you picked up hitching didn't have a knife? It's probably overreaching to compare it to the modern Islamic boogeyman, but the shift was instant. Hippies were not to be trusted. They became a dirty word. Though they'd waved their protest signs, and sung their songs, they'd always been toothless; unthreatening. But then a bunch of teenage girls met a man with long hair, smoked some weed, and stabbed an 8 1/2 month pregnant woman 16 times in the stomach, and got everyone thinking "That could have been my daughter..." And not just of Tate, but of the ones doing the stabbing. Let everyone love freely; let your kids off the leash, and look what might happen. Shut that down before it starts. And keep your door locked.

    There's some media footage available of that book signing. Now, this technology is new to me, but I'm pretty sure that's Foley in the oven rotating slowly. His body temperature has risen to over 400 degrees, he's literally stewing in his own juices.

    “Hello, Bryan here” “Hi, Bryan. This is Dr. Johnson. This is the call you’ve been waiting for! After much consideration, I’m finally clearing you to wrestle and make your return to the ring” “YES!” “Vince, hi, it’s Bry... er, it’s Daniel!” “Hi, Daniel. What can I do for you?” “Well, it finally happened. I got the call. I’m cleared to wrestle!” “So, what do you think? We can make this the greatest comeback story of all time. Put me back in there; I could tear the house down with Owens or Zayn. I could be the man to topple The Beast. Or, dare I suggest it, a dream match against AJ Styles!” “I wasn’t expecting this but you’re right, let’s do this. Let’s give the fans what they WANT!” “Who’s it to be?!” “SHANE MACCCMAAAHHHHHONN”

    Then September 2003. Happily married and a dad to a wonderful 2 year old. Working as a housing officer in the roughest part of Manchester, avid gamer and very happy. Now. Still happily married and dad to a wonderful 16 year old. Work Coach in another rough part of Manchester, avid gamer and very happy. Had the dark period 6 years ago when I was shafted out of my job by so called friends who I had looked after in the past only to have them stab me up the arse. Long period of depression and general feeling of worthlessness, but my wonderful wife helped me through it all, and I was back in the swing of things within 12 months. I never forget how lucky I am with her.

    With his promo skills and brown leather apron, they should make him Butcher Bray. Get him driving a meat van into the arena. "Anyone here like Sausages? Who wants eight pound of Sausages for a fiver? Hang on a minute. I'm gonna chuck in two packets of Bacon with your Sausages. I'm gonna chuck in this bag of pork loin and, just for today, I'm gonna whack in four Trotters for nowt. Whose gonna give me a tenner for this quality bag? Eight quid to the first hand up? There you go darling, have a lovely day. Luke, Erick, take the money. *sings* He's got the whole pig, in his hands..." If his matches are shit, at least you're making a profit in the car park before the show.

    Yeah, apparently the owners had calculated they needed 93 tonnes of TNT to bring it down, but a local reporter kept insisting the real number was only 78.

    The "ignore it" approach is out of date. Following a change in the law in 2014, ignoring it means that when they sell the debt to a collection agency who issue Court summons en masse, you'll be shown to have been unreasonable and it'll cost you significantly more than the original £60. Many parking companies don't follow the required conditions to operate such a service, and so there's loopholes that can be exploited. Take a wander over to the Pepipoo forum were there's some seriously knowledgeable people that can help you challenge it. For shits and giggles, here's the story of me telling a parking company where to stick their parking charge. To be fair, their response was so incredibly horrendous/bizarre, it was like shooting fish in a really small barrel that had no water in it.

    @Shy Dad - Please, please don't beat yourself up about this. A shit job is nothing you should take any blame for. If anything, you should be proud of the fact you still have the self-respect to refuse to put up with that shit and walk, instead of being held to ransom by the fear of not having a job. There's better for you out there, and you only need to find it. I know you're probably worried, because it took you some time to find this one, but the fact that you found it means you will find another.

    Every female wrestler has their knockers, and I think from on top they loom even larger, so of course they need plenty of support.

    It’s quite easy to get into if you learn the few basics of the game: 1) You’ve got to hold and give (but do it at the right time) 2) You can be slow or fast, but you must get to the line 3) They’ll always hit you (and hurt you), defend and attack 4) There’s only one way to beat them: get round the back

    Only the time I could have met Mr. T at the mall. The entire day, I kept saying, "I'll go a little later, I'll go a little later." And when I got there, they told me he just left. And when I asked the mall guy if he'll ever come back again, he said he didn't know. I'm never going to let something like that happen again!

    So I went to have a look at the show last night thanks to Adam's kind offer of honouring some tickets I'd won on here a few months ago. Adam was just leaving when I arrived at about 7.10 and hadn't returned by the time I left, so I wasn't able to say thanks in person. Cheers though! There was nobody on the door when I got there, so I just went in and took a seat. I tapped out after four matches due to the lack of refreshments (there were some ladies in the corner with a kettle which I thought must have meant they were selling cups of tea, but apparently they'd brought it for their own personal use), but from what I saw the wrestlers all did as well as you could expect under the circumstances. It didn't seem like the "professional" part of LPW was in attendance though. In the hour or so I was there, the promoter had gone AWOL, two people were let in for half price (bit sly on the handful of people who paid in full), and out of the four matches I saw, only one of them had been previously advertised. Card subject to change and everything, but that's a crazy amount of undesirable events for such a short space of time. For all the talk of a new start for LPW, I'm not sure if this was it...

    Got a phone call today to tell me I hadn't got the job I applied for but that I did so great at my interview and knew what I was talking about so much that they've offered me a job at one of the lower positions I accepted in less than a second. This is a chance to use my degree, skills and passion all in one job. Absolutely fucking ecstatic.

    On 9 November 1997 the Montreal Screwjob took place. However, some people insist that the World Wrestling Federation faked the Screwjob in film studios at Titan Towers. They argue that photos of the Screwjob aren't real, heat from the Canadian fans would have killed the business and WCW didn't have the ability to return Bret Hart safely from his WWF contract. Photo: Bret Hart in the Sharpshooter during the Montreal Screwjob. Conspiracy theorists say the shadows in this photo, and others like it, are all wrong. Is it possible to fake Earl Hebner ringing the bell in Montreal in a Connecticut TV studio? In 1998 Bret Hart was so concerned about Montreal Screwjob conspiracy theories that he proposed releasing a film to refute them point by point. Marcus Allen believes that the Montreal Screwjob never happened and was a reconstruction done to fool wrestling fans here on Earth. Fin Martin of Powerslam magazine was one of thousands of journalists who followed the 1997 Survivor Series. He believes the sheer numbers of witnesses and people working on the WWF Championship programme means a hoax was impossible. Others say photographic evidence exists which shows the Montreal Screwjob was faked. Wrestling imaging expert Douglas Arnold joined Sir Patrick Moore to dispel conspiracy claims that a lob of spit from Bret Hart never landed on Vince McMahon. The large quantity of gob-on brought back to the locker room on McMahon's face is strong proof, as Sir Patrick and Arnold explained. "Did Bret screw Bret? Would he have dropped the title elsewhere? Was Vince protecting his title or himself? What role did Triple H and Shawn Michaels play? We just don't know. But it wasn't a bloody work!"

    just want to thank the guys on here who have supported Paige and my family through the hard times she has been through, i am not too naive to believe some was not some of her own doing but she has been to the lowest ebb in life a very serious neck injury many many other issues i cant discuss in public we really thought at one stage we would lose her but her fightback has been warrior like to see her walk through the curtain the other nite was very emotional for the family and has been said took great courage by her but was the last step of her journey back. Again thanks for all who supported us for the knockers i genuinely hope you never sample what she has been through or us as a family have had to endure. watch out for the film fighting with my family coming out in spring it will give you a insight to how as a family we tick you will learn alot about us thats not rumour or second hand

    An update on how I'm doing as I know you're all on tenterhooks for it: I've been at Waitrose now for a month today, still on nights, and whilst it took me a while to adjust to the sleeping/eating pattern, it's now pretty normal to me. The job itself is fairly simple as you can imagine, but is hard work, especially on my poor knees. I have had trouble all my life with my knees including twice snapping the same ligament, but yeah I'm really struggling now. There is never a night where I don't feel I haven't worked bloody hard. Everyone is nice on the team and the company is obviously great to work for (already snapped up some reduced Rugby and gig tickets), and there is plenty of opportunities to progress. The biggest gripe I had/have is that for the first 3 weeks, every night Absolute Noughties would be played all night. Essentially, this is a playlist of the same songs from 2000-2017 being played every night, punctuated by links from Matt Berry. This annoyed me, as I don't mind listening to any old shite, and I didn't want to whack in my own earphones when I was still listening to instructions etc, but fuck me, listening to Shoot The Runner, that Black Eyed Peas one, Hey Ya, etc every night was killing me. Someone recently switched to (I think) just normal Absolute which, although is pretty much the same songs every night, at least is Kate Bush, The Jam, The Who, Floyd etc. The hardest thing for me has been eating. Having 'lunch' at 2am is still very alien to me, and I still haven't adjusted fully. And also sleeping. I get in at about 6.15 and it takes me an age to fall asleep, and then I get really annoyed if I sleep past 1.30 as I feel I've missed the whole day. As someone who has depression and especially S.A.D I try and make sure I see as much sunlight as possible. Mental health wise, I'm in a much better place. I've been in a new place for 3 weeks and it is incredible. The house is easily worth mill and a half, it's near my girls, the landlord is a film and music freak who directs short films (and I'm writing a short horror for him) who is a nice guy despite some dodgy views on 'snowflakes' and last weekend 3 Italian girls moved in (kenneth williams.jpg). I also live with a beautiful 10 year old American Bulldog called Rico, who has quickly become my best friend, and I walk him and feed him every day which really improves my mood. He has a problem with his back and legs and can't walk well, and he is the best (I'll upload a pic when I can) Getting paid last month and being able to buy my daughter birthday presents with money I had earned was a feeling I hadn't had for ages. This month and Christmas will be tough, but my days and nights at Crisis are something I'm really looking forward to. Still a bit of a way to go with other things personally, but I feel like I have real stability now, which has done wonders for me, as that's what I lacked. This year I've had 4 places that I've lived in, and 4 temp jobs, and now I've got a place and a job that look secure, I'm much more relaxed. Sorry for rambling. Love you all x

    Made the 7 hour round trip to Salisbury museum today with a pal to see the Terry Pratchett exhibition. Absolutely beautiful, sad and inspiring. Well worth a trip if you're a Discworld fan. As we're leaving, an attendant says, "you're here for the signing right?" We exchange confused glances, so she explains Terry's illustrator Paul Kidby and Terry's PA Rob are there to launch the book of the exhibition and are doing signings round the corner. This is complete serendipity as this was the only Saturday we could both do. We weren't in a rush so we queued for a couple of hours in the bitter cold to get the book signed and get a pic. I'm the freezing poundshop David Mitchell in the middle. I would've put this in a Pratchett thread we once had but I'm embuggered if I can find it.

    You commented on being a leech due to you claiming at the moment. You’ve obviously been for a Work Capability Assessment, and if you got through that with the restrictions they put in, it means you are actually not well at present. That is exactly what the benefit is for, and you would not have got it if you were swinging the lead. In no way, shape or form are you a leech. Trust me, I see plenty. it does not mean you will be out of the game forever, just use it as time to get wha problems you can work on in check, and anything else can be sorted out eventually. The fact you have a positive outlook towards work means you will be back in sooner or later. Best of luck with it.

    Then: November 2004 Aged just twenty fucking three!! - formerly as SaxonsQB, or, more accurately saxonsqb leading to many on here referring to me more often than not as SaxonsGB I can't for the life of me remember how I heard about this place, but it must have been at, or shortly after FWA British Uprising III which I can only imagine I learned of through The Wrestling Channel at the time. I had to check the dates, because I remember my regular show companion and I wearing our East Midland Saxons jerseys, me in the vain hope someone at the show would clock Saxons on the back and approach me with the offer of lifetime friendship. Never happened. But turns out that was at International Showdown in 2005 where I met the first of five UKFF'ers I've had the pleasure to meet over the years, the lovely Pyrotechnik. Anyway, back in 2004 i'd just taken over the running of the Saxons American Football team after a season of absolute raggings where the club found itself laughably embroiled in a steroid scandal of all things. Yes, despite getting 60 nil humpings most weeks and me being on the recieving end of far too many of these, we were publicly outed as users after a BBC documentary charting the life of one of our players who competed during his bodybuilding off-season was in fact broadcast under the title DRUGS IN SPORT! Didn't help his fathers business sponsored our uniform and unbeknownst to us, a quick link through to his website would reveal this banner

    Ok, if it's on the web, just find the direct link and copy and paste it here. If you have it natively, unless you're a paido I think you still need to host it somewhere first, like Photobucket or somewhere less shit. Then it's again a case of simply copying and pasting the link and it should automatically embed. Here's one I prepared earlier, fresh from the weekend!

    It really was the tip of the iceberg for that week. Had a woman shout at me that it was unfair her meal deal would cost more because she was going to sit inside and that the labels from the company didn't specify that and that it was my fault. Someone told me off for the company replacing the baby jesus with a sausage roll, while buying a sausage roll. Had an old guy tell me I couldn't count up right because his sausage roll and tea always cost £1.90 despite again telling him how it cost more to sit inside to which the response was ''it's a tea and a sausage roll. £1.90 like it always is because I'm a regular'' one regular who comes in each day puts her money on the counter and goes and sits down and expects you to know her order and bring it over even if at that point you were in the middle of serving a line of customers before she complains and then this guy getting in my face as one of the guys on his first shift had accidentally swapped a steak bake and steak and cheese roll around and the guy wanted 'the larger one because it's bigger and therefore cheaper' before telling me I was incompetent at my job, deserved unemployment and that if I couldn't put something in the right place how stupid I must have been. Credit to my manager she did come out pretty quick and deal with him while I went to cool off but by that point I knew I was done. Was training to be a supervisor and there's no way I can deal with the people that come in on a daily basis and the abuse. The staff are bloody fantastic and I have a lot of love for them but doing 10/11 hour days that start at typically 5am and then the abuse from customers was really beginning to frazzle my brain. Been having anxiety attacks and nightmares all week, had to cancel going to Cardiff for Attack tomorrow as while I would have been able to meet new friends there my confidence and health is so low I'd probably just shy away from everyone and not enjoy it at all. Back looking for a new job. Applied to go back to my Uni town with a bar job with live in accommodation in an area I know well so hopefully that comes through.

    There are many triple A single player focused games without garbage business practices released just this year and they've done perfectly well without them, even a more niche AAA title like Nier: Automata did great and is likely getting a sequel so I'm not sure how true that is either. Busineses like EA have just found a way to make even bigger profits and have closed down perfectly good studios that don't provide them, EA no longer develops games, they create services.
