    National Security & Defense

    Can't speak for the rest of Europe, but the UK gets less then 25% of its gas from Russia. So if Russia was to cut its supply, we'd still be 'ok' - though probably face a price hike in home heating prices. I think Russia will only use this tactic against Western Europe, where they still fear Russia, in an attempt to make them come crawling back. Is Russia regrowing its Army and Military Fist? More then likely. Over the last 5 years they've slowly become more promiment in the news for various things - Space Exploration, War, Public Shots of their Prime Minister guy, civil war, political unrest and upheaval. About 3 years ago they kept running fake 'bombing' runs towards the UK, prompting Norway and the RAF to send out Tornadoes to 'guide' the Russian Bombers back to Russian airspace. So I wouldn't be surprised if more political mind and war games happened. Last year had the Canada v Russia comedy 'war' over the oil under the ice caps. Russia want to be noticed again and with the way things are going it'll happen more and more.

    Kane, what can he do next?

    He's a defacto face due to the length of time he's been with the company, he's the Undertaker's 'Brother' and an alleged bad ass. He tries his best to get heel heat, but as soon as he's against someone who isn't as over as he is they cheer him. He was still getting half cheered during the Rey Feud, so I think he's stuck in limbo.

    FS: XBOX 360 - Halo 3 Special Edition

    This is a nice limited edition 360 and I remember they sold pretty well when they were released during the time I worked for GAME. You should see if theres any Halo 'fanbois' out there who didn't pick this up.

    Magazine Subscriptions

    Looking at Magazine subscriptions and can't help but notice that New Scientist 12 month sub is $200+... What the hell do you get for that much? Obviously there's web excess and stuff, but how big is the magazine itself?

    Fire Pro Wrestling

    Pretty cool, probably get this on PS3... unless it comes out on 360 and my mates get it.

    I thought I'd write a book

    haha classic. Think I'm going down the deadly serious with light relief moments, the more I think about the less I think I'm going to concentrate on the Zombies themselves and the more about the human survival. Obviously though Zombies will feature and will be the ever present/hinted protagonist. If you have your old script around I'd love to read it, just for the Zombie Squirrels.

    I thought I'd write a book

    Well, it'll be more of a book with character development and investment, rather then just tales and encounters. I didn't like Jericho the TV show, but I did like its concept and some of the ideas it had behind it. So that's the reason Jericho is being used as a resource guide - I can imagine a few of the events will be similar if a Zombie Outbreak happened and humanity was forced into hiding/survival.

    Fair point, I hadn't thought about that.

    The Agent of Oblivion question of the day

    Shopping Trolley down the highstreet, I probably should have died that night. That is why I now know I'm in-de-struct-able (Street Fighter reference for those who care)

    Shit I have to read for High School

    I remember they tried to make me read that and I got so angry. So they gave me Catcher in the Rhye instead. I haven't shot anyone famous yet though.

    Smackdown vs. Raw 2009: News/screens

    Now you mention it, I'm not sure that's included in the DLC - I'll have a look and let you know.

    Xbox 360

    Yeah no problem, if it isn't me it'll be my girlfriend who's totally hooked on it too. Think I'm going to have to buy her her own xbox at this rate.

    WWE General Discussion - March 2009

    Well, we're all still watching after 'our time' be that out of habit or because we still like the product who knows. I was just looking at it and thought, maybe they 'engineer' their own 'boom and bust' style product to get the most money and keep things 'fresh'.

    TSM Death Pool -- 2009

    I think the new rule change this year might be put to the test. I haven't seen Marvin for a while, I think he's out there stalking some of his picks with a hunting rifle.

    WWE General Discussion - March 2009

    He's safe for another year so he's pulling out the stops now! --- Are the WWE engineering and building up their fanbase from ground zero again? Just to think, in 1994 they had those colorful kiddie characters, that grew and evolved as the fans grew over the 5-6 years into the attitude era. So that would be a fan growing from the age of 12-18 with the product growing and match them. In terms of money, surely that's the more successful model to do, to grow and educate your fans into the promotion. So in 5 years time we could have another attitude era when the current fan base grows older. There seems to be a 5 year cycle in wrestling where it peaks, ebbs and rebuilds.

    2009 TSM Worst Poster Tournament: FINAL ROUND

    I demand a recount, there's still votes from the black community and over seas to come in. ENIGMA MUST BE IN THE FINAL! RoHo v Golderngreek isn't really headliner. Both are pretty bad, but bad for different reasons that aren't really drawing in the numbers. Golderngreek is a Goldernturd - yes he's awful, but he says shit with so much seriousness that its funny and would be missed if he was to go. I don't think he realises this, which makes it even funnier. RoHo? I have no idea why he's here. He doesn't come across as a terrible poster, just a teenage kid full of shit he thinks he has to say. If he stopped and thought about what he was saying, if it was important enough to say then he wouldn't be bad at all. I think the hit would be harder to RoHo if he was banned then to Golderngreek. As such I'm trying to think who would give the better count down post to banning out of the two. If ENIGMA was still in the final, I'd vote for Enigma to be gone and Golderngreek to give reasons to stay. As Enigma wouldn't give any fucking reasons cos he sucks. People tell him why he's a bad poster and he cries about it, and tries to ride on something he did several years ago as to why he's awesome. He may as well be a web trawling bot who just posts news into a thread - fuck it... we should have an RSS feed replace him. Quicker, accurate and won't have a shitty picture. I vote Golderngreek, but in truth I want to vote Enigma.

    Kane, what can he do next?

    Kane has been stale since after the Edge-Lita feud. Not sure if stale is the word, more like under utilized. They haven't done anything with him since then, he's just kind of hung about looking mean and asked if someone was alive or dead that went no where. He has feuds with Umaga, MVP, Booker, Rey Mysterio Jr etc. All which were crappy feuds. He needs to take a break and come back, then he will be fresh again. Otherwise he will just keep on being stale. Those lasted a week or two and quickly disappeared. He needs one last big feud before he retires, the only ones that stick out were the ones with The Undertaker and Edge. If he did have a break and came back, what would you have him do? Continue to be Kane the semi demonic friendly giant? Or go whole hog and just go psycho (within pg-13 guidelines)?

    Legends of WrestleMania

    I'd give it a 6.5/10 its a fun game, but has little to no reply value once you've done everything/got achievements.

    Kane, what can he do next?

    Is this a gimmick account? But to say Kane is boring too makes me wonder why you watch wrestling at all. Kane has been one of the more established and entertaining stars for the WWE over the last 10 years. Glenn Jacobs has stuck and made the Kane gimmick his own. Looking back he hasn't really had amazing matches and his feuds at best are a little... questionable, but he's still entertaining in the ring. It might not be the best match of the night, but the way Jacobs sells the character makes it worthwhile to watch.
