Cops demand more time in marathon OiNK investigation



was always seen, by alot of people I ome into contact with as stuck up, secretive and rude to non members, perhaps embracing the spirit of "the scene" would of prevented this from happening?

Pro-smoking website redirected to 'baccy free zone

Thumb Down

what ever happened to

freedom of choice? do we ban drinking? fast food? cars? microwaves? all of these can kill, for instance i lost a family member ue to a drunk driver who plowed her down, do we ban alcohol because of its nock on affects? - no.

my hearing

i swear, if it wasnt for the fact my degree is in audio engineering, id say that my serious degradation in hearing is down to these things, i think they should be banned, im amazed we as a society feel the need to ostracize children and teens in this way, one day these kids will be in charge, and we will be old, and they will remember the way we have treated them.
