  1. 3 kids, married, own a house... Was going alright. Sort of come to a halt at the moment though.   Did work underground on $125,000 a year, for almost 8 years... but that job went out the window with 299 other blokes' jobs when they shut the site down and forced redundancy. I'm back in the Retail industry now, back where I started all those years ago, lol. Everyone has had the ups and down over the years, though I feel I've done alright... the only problem we face now is the massive income drop. It's sad how we get so used to an amount of money we earn every week and take it for grante
  2. :blink:  I registered in... 2002, I think... under the name "Squashed Snail" (couldn't tell you what the go was with that username). Sort of just... forgot about this place, hey... more so the 'net in general, lol. I got more and more into the modified automotive scene, built up my own Commodore (Australia's version of the North American Pontiac G8, albeit a lot older than any model under the Pontiac name), and eventually got right into it. I now regularly attend many Holden-orientated car shows and events, the big ones being Summernats and Street Commodores Cruise4Char
  3. Bullet For My Valentine, Demon Hunter, Spineshank, Silent Civilian, Disturbed, All That Remains, War Of Ages, Dry Kill Logic, Slipknot (sometimes :blink:).   A little less on the heavy-heavy side, Metallica, Lost Autumn, Burn Season, Adema (their first two albums are like a completely different sound to what they are now, the latter not even worth listening too :blink:), and Seether. ...as for bands that are no longer together, The Blank Theory, Lifer and Reveille (I believe they are back under the name "Genuflect"), are all unreal. Getting a bit long in the t
  4. Bury My Life by Deligma. They've got a great sound, one that I haven't been able to really get away from.
  5. Currently playing StarCraft 2: Heart Of The Swarm online, pretty stuck on it at the moment though... PS3, I'm playing Fallout: New Vegas (trying to clock it in Hardcore mode, nearly there), and GTA5. Pretty damn hard to get some free time to enjoy the gaming-side of things these days, especially when you have three kids running around the house.  
  6. I keep having short dreams where I'm falling, and it's in a city and at night, because tall buildings are surrounding me and all I can see is little windows lit up by light flashing past me as I fall to the ground... It's always exactly the same... And I've been having it ever since I can remember... I never hit the ground, ever, and I always wake up in shock just before I [I]do[/I] hit the ground. :smoke:
  7. I only know of soy sauce from chinese shops. Every chinese shop I've ever been in has had a bottle of soy sauce on every table. I don't even know what it tastes like but I still always put it in my short soup. Doesn't change the way the soup tastes, but I still do it.
  8. $14 in Australia for a pack of Winfields in the 25s. I remember when you could buy the same pack for $9.90. People are going to keep smoking though, and tobacco companies are going to keep making money. It's not going to go away, no matter how many "quit smoking" ads they want to put on tv.
  9. I'd buy one, if I had the money, and set it up in my kitchen. I love pizza. I do agree though, on the other hand, that pizza does tend to taste alot better when hand-made, if the cook knows what they're doing.
  10. :laugh: You're alive a short time, you're dead a long time. Live every day like it's your last.

But; if I [I]could[/I] care, then yes, I most likely would care about the fact that I had bought a brand new car the day before the day I died, because I [I]dare[/I] say I would have had big pl
  11. [quote name='Lunar'][COLOR=blue]Stupid decision, that car would probably end up in a scrap heap 20 years from now.:animesmil I said it with a smile.....[/COLOR][/quote]:crying: Nah... Never. But hey, if I die before those twenty years are up, there won't be any car to scrap. ;) See, I'm not really worried about what's going to happen in twenty years from now; probably helping the reason as to why I don't care for when I'm going to die...
  12. I don't really care [I]when[/I] I'm going to die... I don't really look after my health enough [I]to[/I] care. If I was to find out one day, I'd probably forget within the first week of that day. As for how; ...in my car. Why not die with the one thing in life that has kept my pay-packet empty? ...[I]yeah[/I], for sure. -_- ...My sole interest in life (apart from the mrs.). --Everyone has some sort of passion in life, some sort of "[I]life[/I]"... Mine is my car. And with over fifty grand spent on it as of present, it [I]will[/I] be dying with me. :smoke: [I]My[/I] money spent is for [
  13. [quote name='Nerdsy][color=deeppink]People don't have to. They [i]want[/i'] to. There's a sizable difference there.[/color][/quote]May be a difference... though think about it. [i]Why[/i] do they want to? ...[i]wanting[/i] to is just a decision, there's always a reason behind it. Whether people say there is or not, that reason can't always be so blatantly known, even to the user themselves. Some people might want to do drugs just to fit in, still a reason. They can't accept not being "cool"... Just 'cause everyone else is? They don't wanna be left out. Stupid little reasons that need t
  14. [QUOTE=DeadSeraphim][color=indigo][size=1][font=Arial] How about [i]I[/i] go on the people I see everyday. I see one of my best mates, one of the most level headed people I know, use marijuana and occasional harder drugs to enhance his experience (say, at a concert). I see my cousins - men in happy families, with children and wives - take pot just to relax after a hard day. **** it man, I see some of my more party-hard friends take an E occasionally just because. Are they doing it cause they're trying to escape 'even slight emotional pain'? No, far from it. I'm sure there's plenty of peop
  15. Through my eyes, illicit drugs are an immediate "remedy" for pain or emotional strain, for the weak who cannot bear to cope with even slight emotional pain. Plain and simple. I'm not going on the "facts" or whatever people like referring to these days, I'm going on the people I see everyday. I have known [i]alot[/i] of people my age, and it's safe to say that drug-ran lives are not so easy to hide, you can see it a mile away. I've watched too many people have their lives thrown around by drugs, and drugs only. Thrown around so much that they end up being a completely different person all t
