May as well list everythning I got...

Jack Higgins book that I already have
1x Ozzy Osbourne Concert Ticket
Ozzfest DVD
$325NZD ($250US)
Sh|t load of chocolate, like a draw full.
18 cans of coke for my mini fridge and a 5L German beer keg (filled).
One of those sterotypical American bed-side clocks, the one with the numbers that flick over like a score-board.
Some expensive Boss roll on deodorant and after shave.

And that be it, I went to Europe and America this year so i'm not complaining.

In NZ it's not really that common for friends of my age to give each other xmas presents unless you're a girl. Girls spend like hundreds on friends gifts.

Us guys are like why bother, lets not waste our money on each other, may as well just hand each other $20, there's no point.

How is the LMF? I've been meaning to buy one for the longest time...


I have to say you won't be disappointed.The blade is good and heavy,you'll be suprised out just how hefty it is,no bending the blade here.The ASEK's sheath is a little funky because it doesn't have a belt loop,just straps.I was able to modify mine to fit on a 1" belt.Other than that everything else has worked out just fine.I'd definitely give it a 9 out of 10.

That's me and my friends.I called up my best friend and asked what to get his family(they're pretty much my second family),didn't even occur to get him something,I'll probably buy lunch somewhere a couple weeks from now.Yep,the life of guys.

Why not, I'm sure the case would come in handy ;)

I don't know why I put up with you. There are few things you say that don't make me groan. It's almost instinctive now - I'll start to groan, then realise there's no silly joke and have to stop.

Me, I got around £120 in cheques and cash (~$250 USD, which won't go as far in the UK. Need to decide what to spend it on), a small number of DVDs (Hot Fuzz, Miami Vice, Bourne Ultimatum, 300 - prompt excessive quoting), a new book on fantasy drawing (NO! Not that type of fantasy!!! *glares at JSR*), a weird book on the science of the Simpsons, some chocolate, and a few other things. Christmas isn't a huge deal at my house.

The real present this year has been the laptop I got off the government because of my registered disability, Asperger's syndrome.
...a variant of autism where language and cognitive skill/development is largely unaffected. To expand a bit, Autism is rather heavily blown out of proportion by the media, at least in the UK, and I imagine in a lot of other countries as well. It doesn't affect me greatly, nor does it many other people with it - the media show you the worst. I don't particularly like it being called a disability, and in my own words: "Asperger's is simply a different viewpoint on the world, which sometimes makes it difficult, but far from impossible."
As for the 'link' between the MMR and Autism - I assure you that it's total bollocks. It's genetic beyond any doubt - my father has it to an extent, his father had it to a greater extent, and they were both born before the vaccine was introduced.
To the person who wrote me a PM on the subject - sorry, I got distracted and completely forgot to complete a second reply, I'll get back to it ASAP

Nearly two grand - 2x 2gHz (Dual core), 2gB DDR2 RAM, nVidia GeForce 8600, 100gB HDD, DVD+RW, 19" widescreen display - quite a nice machine. Even better when the government gives it to you for no expense on your own part... As for all those tax paying types... *evil laugh*

On rather less good news, our remaining guinea pig, Arrow (one of what was once a pair with another female, Jet), passed away on the night between the 25th and 26th, at an age about 5 years and 7 months.
It's a bit of a damper to the spirit of celebration, but the family is coping all right - we've known it was approaching since the other one died 11 months back, and we're actually pretty surprised that she's survived this long, many animals pine away quickly if they lose their company.
We think she may have caught a cold off one of the family, we've all had them recently, and their immune systems aren't up to handling that particularly well, even when they're young and healthy.
Unfortunate, but you know from the day you buy any pet that it will almost certainly die before you do.

Anyway, I'll be at a friend's party in a few days, who has a birthday on the 31st, so it becomes combined with New Year's, and thus, everyone gets twice as drunk - including me, but I don't drink in the first place... 2 times nothing is still nothing... :P.

Ouch, I feel your pain. Tis not everyday someone has to go through something like that, luckily for me i've only ever been to one screening of Miami Vice, but a few unforunate people have been through it more then once and are never the same again.

What's truly disturbing is that it *exactly* the sort of thing my girlfriend tells me on an almost daily basis :? :D

You're at uni dude, now's the time to get pissed and high - you can be all serious and philosophical when you're 35 ;)

I read that as 18 grams of coke first time round :shock:

Precisely one of the reasons why I detest xmas - this strip says it all:

She does have a point though, if it was left up to us guys, we'd just give each other $20, no wrapping paper or envelopes.

Just take a twenty out of your wallet and exchange with another human. The that human exchanges another $20 back to you :D

Actually that's what me and my friends do for birthdays. :lol:

And we'd have xmas outside, so we can show off by getting the biggest xmas tree, and there would always be a 21 spudgun salute at 12am

That would be perfect, no?

That would leave everyone with enough cash to build a NASA style chicken-cannon to distribute xmas turkey around the neighbourhood :D

Rag: i'm jealous of your laptop, i just got mine on my birthday (3rd dec) and its not as nice as yours although its alright (2gb ram, duel cores which run at a grand total of 1.87Ghz 8) i think i have a 120gb hdd and and ATI graphics card. and one would have thought that the government would maybe spend less money on laptops and more on healthcare or policing, not that i'm saying you shouldn't have an expensive one.

MrCrowley: in england we feel the same about christmas gifts between male Friends its never even talked about... its like some kind of unwritten law :lol:

JSR: where do you get all these amusing cartoons from? there seems to be one for every occasion :lol:

No matter, I distract myself from such films by analysing all the clichés they use. Particularly firearm balls-ups.

A pet hate of mine is the concept that removing the magazine from a firearm automatically disables it... obviously nobody understands that there can still be a round in the chamber.
I just largely ignore the bottomless magazines and disproportional recoils now, but there are things that still annoy me, like the fact that jammed guns are always irredeemably broken, and any gun of any quality will go off if dropped. Not to mention that guns will make ridiculous noises when simply moved around a little.

Not to mention that no matter what type of gun you have, it's impossible to hit Arnold Schwarzenegger (thank you, FF spellcheck) with it (when he isn't a robot, at least).

Any explosive device is ALWAYS an incendiary device. No exceptions.

Revolvers contain at least 10 shots (even a standard 6 shot magazine).

Guns have no recoil on the user's side, but tend to throw the target across the room.

Lasers do not travel at the speed of light.

If you are ever shooting from a rooftop and get hit by an enemy bullet, the standard reaction is to throw yourself off the roof, even if you are still alive and conscious. You must also use the Wilhelm scream.

You cannot kill large reptiles with bullets. They must be hit by a missile/ set on fire/ fed an explosive device/ thrown into a pit/ hit by a train.

Splitting up is always a good idea.

You are never more than 20 feet from an exploding barrel.

I could probably go on for a while but it's bringing back too many bad memories.
