The man is in full segregation, it is only a matter of time before he loses his mind. Eventually he will begin to look forward to the times when the cctv 'accidentally' goes offline for a few minutes, so the guards can come in and beat the piss out of him. At least that will give him some form of human contact.
Its not relevant to compare the American justice system to Norways, or anywhere else for that matter. Norways justice system is one the best in the world, with low recidivism rates across the board, what they do there works.
  Unusually high suicide rate though.

Because he has elaborate visions which by their very nature are not commercial. Those big studios who produce his movies are owned by media corporations who are interested in only one thing: money. They've got quarterly reports to look at and don't really care about things like "art" and "creativity".

It's often the same story with Ridley Scott. He has his writers come up with grand stories which he cannot fully flesh out in the big screen because he has to make concessions to producers. Look at Kingdom of Heaven- an incomplete film when it came out, it felt heavily chopped. Only when the Director's Cut was released did we see the full film (It's not a coincidence that Scott is the originator of Director's Cuts, a trend he started with Blade Runner, another chopped up movie).

I'll be giving Prometheus a pass. These films build up a tremendous hype, then you go see the movie and it's lukewarm at best.

So true. We may end up waiting for a directors cut of this movie to see anything worth while.   Its just a bit of a piss off that they won't let him do a movie the way he wants, his movies always seem to make money so just let him do what he wants?  You're right though, it all boils down to money and thats all the studios are concerned about. Either way, I'm still looking forward to it.

Ive been waiting for this movie for a year and i don't think I'm going to be disappointed. It looks fantastic.   Apparently Ridley Scot wasn't given the creative control he wanted from the studio so the movie is supposed to be quite different from his original idea. Too bad, ridley scot makes great movies, i don't know why a studio would prevent him from doing it his way?

The handling on the new GTR's is pretty incredible, (i was a passenger, wasn't driving it personally). I would think that a zr1 would be better on a quarter mile, but the gtr was built to race, not to do quarter mile. not really a fair comparison because these cars both have different niches in the automotive market, not really meant to compete with one another. Both are pretty amazing machines though. Personally I would buy a GTR if i had the money over a ZR1, but I really enjoy japanese style cars, (As my name shows).

If the pictures have already been posted online, then they are public information and do not belong to the person in the picture. (This is why its never a good idea to post incriminating photos on Facebook)

SMM should be far more concerned with being sued for impersonating a military officer, or being sued by the Gracie organization for lying about his progress within their group. Not to mention his comments about young girls, this guy should be flagged immediately for being a potential rapist/molester.

On top of all that, if you are still worried about posting his photos, either post them by a gimmick account from a different IP address, or else have someone living outside of the USA post them.

Canada takes way too much money from its citizens for what they offer.

50% income tax is fucking BRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUTAL.

Also, they have something called "sin tax". Back when i use to smoke, i bought a pack of 20 for $2.50, within 5yrs of introducing the "sin tax", the price shot up to $10.50. PURE RAPE

What's great about Canada

1. Decent roads and traffic laws
2. Decent justice system
3. Not a lot of people which = less overall crime, and general doucheness.
4. It's a first world "civilized" country and is part of the G8.

That's pretty much it.

- Schools are free but they suck. Even in high class neighbourhoods, the government decides to build subsidized housing complex and ruin the neighbourhoods with degenerate refugee immigrants. People with money specifically move to expensive areas to get away from shit broke degenerates, and the government just fucks it up. I remember my high-school was ranked top in the country, but it was filled with refugee scum bags, pathetic.  

- Free health care, but only what doctors deem necessary. All the expensive shit is not covered.

  -My neighbour paid 10's of thousands for chemo-therapy treatment, poor bastard.

  -I have to pay extra for a hormonal panel (only if the doctor approves too, lol'd).

- Canada is very good at exploiting its natural resources, selling them raw with minimal processing. FUCKING MORONS.

- They are proponents of this supposed new age liberal fantasy utopia of lets hold hands multiculturalisms bullshit.  None of that shit is true, it's all lies.

i could go on, but ^half^ this shit is not even related to this thread....ahahhahahahah

Not sure which part of the country you live in, but there seems to be a lot of inaccuracies in your statement. No one in canada pays 50% income tax, check the tax bracket scale, it doesn't go that high. School systems are great here, maybe you live in Nunavit? where your "high school" consisted of 6 people? Also, there is no way that your neighbour paid thousands of dollars for chemo, cancer treatment is fully covered, doesn't cost you a dime here. If he did pay money for treatment he elected to do so and probably went to an out of country treatment centre for "better healthcare"   What you said about selling raw resources is completely true, there is no reason why we shouldn't be turning raw resources into finished products, creating more jobs and boosting the economy. This is hard to do though because manufacturing/processing costs are so high here, and so low in places like china and india, so that it is cheaper for companies to sell raw resources and buy back finished products from china, rather than manufacture here.

Most universities/colleges have their own student web sites for buying used books. Just ask around, someone in your program can point you in the right direction to a cheap used textbook.

16  Getbig Main Boards / General Topics / Re: Sir Patrick Moore speaks out on uncontrolled UK immigration on: April 28, 2012, 05:23:30 PM
It's not as bad as it is being represented- like I said, immigration is being magnified and over-emphasized for political purposes. A certain part of immigrants are muslim brides; they enter the country having married a muslim man.

I don't know what goes on in the head of an immigrant because I've never spoken to one about the issue. If I had to take a guess, it would be partly because of the language; english is very popular and probably the majority of the world speak it to a degree; the English are in general tolerant people-this might also play a role. The benefit system is comprehensive (this definitely plays a role, but certainly not so major as the media would like people to believe; immigrants to the UK are not immediately entitled to benefits). Jobs in the south of england are abundant. For an immigrant to make a living they can work in a restaurant or drive a taxi, after they've registered with their local council.

The small land space claim is not true. Only 6% (or another single digit percentage) of English land is developed. The rest are hills and grasslands and pastures.

Interesting.  It always pisses me off when politicians sensationalize a problem in order to garner more votes, and then forget about the "problem" after election day.
17  Getbig Main Boards / General Topics / Re: Sir Patrick Moore speaks out on uncontrolled UK immigration on: April 28, 2012, 04:55:50 PM
Im surprised that there are so many people immigrating to the UK. Its a fantastic first world country with lots of appealing qualities, but from what I have heard the cost of living is incredibly high. Food, land, fuel, tax are all especially high, so why wouldn't people immigrate to other areas where these things cost less? Unfortunately a plane ticket to Canada does not cost that much, and once a plane lands all someone has to say is "I want refuge status" and they cannot be refused entry to the country. They are then given medical care, social assistance benefits, have access to work programs, education, etc...  just a huge drain on the countries financial resources.
At least the system is engineered so that if you immigrate legally you have to be educated and meet certain employment criteria. 
So what is the huge appeal to the UK? it already has a pretty high population given the small land space. Can anyone from there explain the appeal?

You don't have to suffer serious injury to protect yourself.  That wouldn't make any sense.  Beat the hell out of me...then right before I think I will die, I shoot you.  Stupid...don't you think?

There are too many people in jail for drugs, that is all I agree with you about.  Theft?  They need to be in jail for that.  

You are so against carrying guns and seem to live in a very safe area...although you stated:

"I see a lot of violence at work, we even have a number of street level drug dealers who are occasionally clients. Even they have rules in regards to "street justice" If someone beats the shit out of your friend, you beat the shit out of that guy. If someone stabs you, you stab them."

...I'll stick to the U.S. laws, you guys can stab each other all you want...

That is the way most laws are designed. Not if someone hits you once you get to shoot them. You can disagree with that, but that is how many laws are designed, with levels of progression in violence in mind.  Having seen the photos now though, I can understand the progression here, and the pictures do not jive with the tv news story at all.

I don't think people should face large periods of incarceration for theft, no.  If some 20 year old steals your TV, he should not spend 10 years locked up, with the general public paying for his care for a decade.  He should be given an appropriate sentence and should be able to do restorative justice, where he can pay back the person or company whose TV he stole.  Who wants to pay millions of dollars for some asshole who has stolen a 300 dollar tv??? it doesn't make sense.

I dont stab anyone, I see a lot of this sort of violence at work. And the goal is always to take people out of the system and make them productive tax paying citizens who contribute to society.

Im out, have to go eat before work. Good chat though, I like to hear opposing points of view, It is ignorant to think that my opinions are always right, and I respect your views, the ones that I agree with and the ones that I don't.

I am also not trying to portrait Martin as innocent in this situation. The kid obviously was aggressive and violent. I just think that it is important to examine the entire situation, from start to finish, the way a judge or jury should do.

People have been beat to death all over the world for centuries, don't be a smartass.

Where are all these thousands? Roll Eyes
Really? I don't believe that thousands of people are being beat to death in one on one fist fights. You are the one being a smart ass. If you live in a first world country where thousands of people are being beat to death in fist fights I would expect that country to be in an all out riot or revolution. Also, if that is happening, you should move because you are in danger of being beat to death by a 17 year old high school student... Undecided
21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Where was the media with this?? Zimmerman history. on: April 26, 2012, 06:55:48 PM
Understandable if you aren't from the states.  There are certain times when the "heat of the moment" applies under a majority of jurisdictions...usually not in a case such as this.  That said, I will gladly take the laws in the United States to the laws in other countries.

If you see his pics, it might change your perspective.
Perhaps, I haven't seen the pictures, if he did suffer serious injury then I could understand his reason for pulling a gun.

The US justice system gives citizens many more rights for protecting property and themselves, compared to other areas, however the rate of incarceration in the US is appalling. You are paying thousands of dollars personally to house all of those inmates! many of them in jail for ridiculous drug crimes, or theft. I also don't live in a country where citizens are allowed to carry weapons. Here only cops and gang members carry guns so it is very very very rare that a shooting does not involve either of those two groups. People don't get beat to death here, maybe that is a real danger there. From my experience a kid getting shot by a neighbourhood watch captain is unfathomable.  Only a jury now will decide who was in the right.
Either way, both of these individuals could have went on to have productive and fulfilling lives.  Now neither of them will.  Very sad.
22  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Where was the media with this?? Zimmerman history. on: April 26, 2012, 06:47:38 PM
In his ideal legal system you just lay there and pray the person bashing your skull is generous enough to lay off of you before death kicks in. Sure didn't help the thousands of people who were killed this way though, does it?
Where are these thousands? I would assume as a grown man you have been in a fight or two in your life, how many of those have been life threatening enough for you to fear for your life? Perhaps you are right and his life really was in danger, I (or any of us) have no way of knowing how intense the fight was. I just find it hard to rationalize that in a fist fight with a teenager you would be fearing for your life, but who am I to judge Zimmermans, or your level of fear.

I see a lot of violence at work, we even have a number of street level drug dealers who are occasionally clients. Even they have rules in regards to "street justice" If someone beats the shit out of your friend, you beat the shit out of that guy. If someone stabs you, you stab them.
What doesn't happen is someone gets beat up, and then the other person gets shot.
23  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Where was the media with this?? Zimmerman history. on: April 26, 2012, 06:39:49 PM
(1) Really? Other countries charge people who intentionally kill others with manslaughter?

(2) I assume you saw Zimmerman's head.  Zimmerman's injuries came from his head repeatedly hitting the concrete.  FYI:  You can die from having your head hit repeatedly against the concrete.
1) yes. The charge of manslaughter is used when the killing is not for profit or premeditated but in the "heat of the moment" so to say. It does not carry a life sentence. Here, Zimmerman is being charged with second degree murder, which I believe does carry a life sentence. Its hard to keep us with every law in every state, maybe someone can verify that?

2) No, I haven't seen pictures of his injuries. I have not heard of his injuries being severe in any way.
24  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Where was the media with this?? Zimmerman history. on: April 26, 2012, 06:33:19 PM

Yeah you're right, he should have just stayed there getting his head bashed into the ground and hoped he didn't get beat to death.  Roll Eyes

The man has a right to defend himself with deadly force if he feels his life is endangered. We can argue all day long if he was in the right or wrong in pursing Trayvon but he is at least afforded the right to defend his life.

I understand your point that he has the right to defend himself. Pulling a gun during a fist fight is not defending yourself. Ive seen many dozens of fights and rarely is anyone ever injured at all, sometimes a fat lip and a black eye, but to think that his life was in danger during a fist fight? Come on...  Would you consider your life in danger if a teenager punched you in the face a few times? I would be angry but i have trouble believing that my life would be in danger.
