THANKS YEAH,,GOOD TRACKS THERE,,,THEY SOFENED THERE SOUND AND RADIO PLAYED THEM AND ROB GOT INTO PROPS TOO MUCH,,STILL GOOD LIVE BAND..

I thought Defenders was really hard, however, Point of Entry and Turbo are blatant sell out attempts. Also, in a lot of their albums it's just like you said, only a few songs are memorable, the rest are filler.

PRIEST ALWAYS STAYED WITH SAME FORMULA BUT TINKERED WITH 'RADIO'VERSIONS FOR HITS 'LIVING AFTER MIDNIGHT,BREAKING THE LAW,NOTHER THING COMING...BREAKING THE LAW,POINT OF ENTRY AND UP THEY STARTED HITTING THERE SALES/TOUR STRIDE 80'S EARLY TO LATE 80'S...I LIKE MORE SONGS THAN WHOLE DISCS ,ACCEPT SCREAMING AND POINT OF ENTRY AND ONE AFTER SCREAMING WITH 'LOVE BITES'FREEWHEEL BURNING FORGOT ALBUM??ONE OF MY FAV SONGS BY THEM IS DESERT PLAINS AND DIAMONDS AND RUST 'LIVE VERSION'

Defenders of the Faith.

Priest sold out many times unfortunately...

Their last couple of albums are embarrassments and Halford is physically painful to watch live. Another band that doesn't know when to live the stage.

Both great bands, however.

Maiden never had a record like Painkiller.

Priest never had Maiden's consistency.

Btw, I doubt they would actually use it in Guadanamo, some of the ethnicities kept in there actually eat dogs.
It might put them to sleep though.

I watched the original Japanese one years ago.

I was crying like a grandmother at the end. In fact, I can hardly bear to think of it now.

Honestly, I didn't give a single solitary fuck for any of them. I'm so totally indifferent, I even surprised myself.

Last Saturday, they brought a dog into the rescue centre I volunteer. Some yob thought it was good sport to shoot the poor thing with an air rifle to the spine. To me, that was upsetting.

Reading on the internet about a loser who killed himself with drugs and another who caught HIV is so abstract it may as well have happened in another planet.

3-  once administered, how long does the effect last? Since one is altering gene make up, it would seen that the effect should be long-lasting.

I would be interested to see what else is altered and if it is long-lasting too.

2-  is the consequence of the administration localized to the muscle in which the complex had been administered or does it in fact become systemic?

Inevitably it won't be localized, I'd be curious to see what other receptors are affected by the virus.

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's uberman. Able to clear a room with a single sentence. His superpowers include: standing in a corner awkwardly at parties, browsing Sigmund Freuds's wikipedia page, and power of invisibility when in contact with a woman or man over 200lbs. His arch enemies are the English language, original thoughts, and daddy.

HAHHAHAAH SHIT!

Comrade Joseph started taking Propecia and Rogaine at a young age.

When he was young he was also a bank robber (true story).

India has many "problems". They also have many wonderful things.

A 30% poverty rate is not a "problem", it's a disaster.

In all honesty, if you're suffering from depression, there are free clinics out there that will help you and with the affordable care act you can not be rejected, as technically you NOW have insurance. You can either opt for a specific plan or pay the tax fine at the end of the year, but nonetheless you are covered and will not be rejected.

Seek a professional to speak with.

Discuss the various stressors in your life and your mechanisms used to cope.

Get out more for walks, exercise and even try picking up a new hobby that requires you to devote both mental and physical energy towards it. This often times allows your mind to become remolded and set your attention onto other things that can derail your overall depression. Any less time feeling depressed is time invested towards the right direction.

Change your diet. Reduce your overall intake of caffeine and processed foods. Try getting the recommended amount of sleep (6-8 hours every night).

If and when you find that resorting to the aforementioned tactics does not provide a decent level of progress, you might have to consider cognitive behavioral therapy and possibly pharmacotherapy down the line.

Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (Celexa, Zoloft, Paxil, Prozac & Lexapro) are very commonly used and have proven to provide a generous amount of resolve in those with depression.

Likewise, Tricyclic antidepressants (Elavil, Pamelor, Norpramin, Tofranil) can be used if therapy with the SSRI's mentioned above fail to provide you with results.

There are also other drugs on the market that can be of help to you if the step-up approach from SSRI's to Tricyclic antidepressants proves to be futile (wellbutrin, Desyrel, Effexor etc.).

Like I said before, even if you don't have insurance, you can no longer be denied medical assistance. As an American, if you are currently without insurance, you will be required to pay a fine at the end of the year, so what that technically means is that you DO have insurance and are only required to either pick a designated government plan and/or walk in for treatment at one of your local clinics that treat psychological disorders.

Feel free to PM me if you need help in establishing a healthcare insurance plan.

"1"

I would be careful about SSRIs. An FDA literature review in 2007 showed they are not statistically more effective than placebo (which is why after 2007 the pharma industry started pushing antipsychotics for depression...)

All other suggestions are quite sensible.

If I may add my own, going out and doing something physical has always helped me. Gardening, decorating, volunteering, whatever. Physical work is balm for my mind.

This thread is proof that Getbig can be sympathetic if need be. I wish shizzo had taken advantage of that.

So you judge indians based on THIS? Exactly my point..

Never said I judged Indian culture as a whole Roll Eyes
21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Who else doesnt like indian culture? on: November 19, 2013, 07:02:12 AM
I can tell you about a co-worker I had.

Fifteen years in the country he could hardly speak English. He could write it (with numerous errors) but when he opened his mouth we didn't understand 50% of what he was saying. For the rest we had to rely on context.

After a while it dawned on me that he couldn't understand us either. I say after a while because not once did he ask for clarification on anything. If you explained something to him, he would get a very rough idea of what you were trying to say, yes you to death and go away trying to work things out for himself. Inevitably he would come to you again with the same question, but since he was slow (on top of everything else) it could be weeks before he asked again.

And yes, he stunk up the place and had vicious hay fever and other allergies (like many Indians). We were told by the manager not to open the windows so as not to exacerbate him further so you can imagine how we felt in a room stinking of curry powder with all sorts of particles flying in the air due to coughing and sneezing.

Other than that, he was the typical Indian software developer. Clueless, not particularly motivated (was out of the building by 5pm on the dot every afternoon), slow-witted (took him forever to do simple stuff), his skills were outdated but more importantly, he needed constant direction in his work.

One day he was assigned a task about finding some files in a nested sub-directory structure with 50,000 directories. He worked on it for two weeks (in fact this sort of problem has already been solved and you can find the solution with a ten minute search on stackoverflow). When he finished he told the team his solution would take five days to run. I immediately asked to have a look if only to marvel at the size of the WTF. I told him what to fix (in excruciating detail) and he managed to bring the time down to a few hours.

I could go on with the WTFs, if I had the time. In the end, the manager took him upstairs one day for a meeting and fired him with immediate effect (escorted from the building) with payment in lieu of notice.

UKJeff looks GREAT. Wish he wasn't so crazy; he couda been a great productive poster and helped tons of bros out. IMO a guy who's achieved a good physique like that should be above the petty child games he loved on here. He obviously takes his bodybuilding seriously.

I said that months ago, anyone else with ukjeff's build would command massive respect here.

But he being the way he is...

No 'supposed' about it, and you know it.

never mind, lets sweep it under the carpet.

Sweep it under the carpet Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

This sort of passive aggression would elicit a humiliating bitch slap in certain places that come to my mind.

Mike get a hold of yourself you are mature man, not a fifteen year old school girl. If you act like a bitch, people will treat you accordingly.
