Re: The most important thing when being a journalist

god...where do i start?? that is the most amount of BS ive ever read in 1 page.
oh no .....he died because he played a game?

"Mr Homer had a passion for cars and for modifying his own Ford XF 351 V8 with accessories such as a bonnet scoop, his friend Stephen Deas said.

He recently spray-painted it fire engine red and asked Mr Deas to help him purchase a boot wing. Its customised interior had a canvas mural of Motley Crue stitched on to the inside of car's roof."
wow! XFs didnt have 351s, so of course its modified. between the red paint, bonnet scoop and also the motley crue mural that must have been 1 fast car coz all that is AT LEAST another 300rwkw to the car.


i just wish wankers like this actually knew what the hell they were talking about instead of just writting some crap so they can save their own pitiful job.

That's what I was thinking... perhaps the boy racer vibes jumped across the room between their heads.

Re: The most important thing when being a journalist

the more you read into that story the more you realise how irrelavent his points are.
i've got need for speed game but that doesn't make me want to rice up my ford,i've got GTA san andreas too and that doesn't make me feel like doing anything crazy. but if its a good excuse i'll use it next time the cops catch me speeding
as for the underage GF that gave up smoking and drinking because she was pregnant(thought you had to be 18 to buy grog and smokes)

Re: The most important thing when being a journalist

that is probably the worst piece of 'journalism' i have ever read. truly, the biggest pile of crap. however, the worst part is that the prat who wrote it put his name on it. or, maybe he put someone elses name on it and wrote it as a joke?????.....
