Black Friday - Part II

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

James's current dilemma had me thinking... there have been many instances in world history where a David has beaten a Goliath - just watch the 'McLibel' documentary. What the Viet Cong did to the US during the Vietnam war may be another. What's your fave "under-dog wins-out" story?

The story of David and Goliath is 1 Samuel 17

It seems to me that rather than being a story of courage in the face of seemingly insurmountable difficulties, it's a lecture on the importance of superior fire-power.

So on that basis, the Gulf War: where the "David" of the USA defeated the "Goliath" of Iraq... ;)

On a non-sporting note, I once reduced an estate agent to tears and left with a cheque for £300.

Bah, a stupid technical flaw. Don't even get me started on the Rout at Endor, either. Fuckin' teddy-bears beating crack Stormtroopers, and taking down an SSD with a single A-Wing.

I am currently training in the litigation department and see too few :(

I don't think that I will choose this side of the law when I qualify - I'm all for the "little guy" and get crazy mad when I see "the man" win..........

To be honest, though, employment law is starting to get it together and there seems to be far more support around for the individual going up against the institutions - so there may be light at the end of the tunnel ;D
I never talk during music, at least during good music. If one hears bad music, it is one's duty to drown it in conversation.

Yes - I held an equally sized guy up against a wall by his neck for making unwanted (and repeatedly rejected) advances towards me whilst at a nightclub :twisted:

did anyone else see OAPs on ASBOs on sky the other night?for those who didnt,it was mostly the interfering/batty types of pensioner-you know the sort:one guy had donkeys years worth of documented evidence of his neighbours' illegal parking;another couple were convinced that their wheel-chair-bound neighbour was constantly being visited by women at all hours for nefarious purposes and playing loud music in the middle of the night(when their "state of the art" recording equipment failed to detect this it was immediately blamed as "making them look stupid"). :roll:
one guy however (to get back on topic) was an absolute star.he'd been ASBO'd for continually applying for credit cards in (amongst others) his pet canary and his dogs names.the banks were -as usual- happy to give him credit without fully checking his situation.what sets him apart from your ordinary fraudster IMHO is the fact that every penny of the twenty grand he scammed was spent on food which he gave away to other OAPs!
to this day he continues to apply for credit cards-fair fcuking play i reckon. :lol: :notworthy:
