Re: The Darker Side of the News

Also, just from the story I tagged, they keep saying that he's a 16 year old student. Do they mean he's 16 now, in which case he was 13 when locked up or is currently 19? Because if he was 13 when locked up that's just beyond belief.

On the job front; potential job for me in my home town. No more hour long commutes to work! I've only been at this new job a month but a move where I could potentially walk to work every day for more pay is too hard to turn down. Now to get an interview and ace that interview.

Re: Actual (Association) Football Talk.

Higuain was also travelling at speed. It's not like Neuer hit a static target. I'm not saying that he did. The speed of both challengers made it reckless. It's still a foul.

Keepers jump towards players all the time. Either there should be a lot more penalties given out during corners, or there's another law which covers this.

I did roam You shouldn't really do that on OD, unless a lane really needs the help and you can go and drop a sanity on it or something. Your role is to stay mid, dominate the lane until your opponent runs away in disgust, farm as long as you can, get fat as hell, then kill everyone. Really, the onl...

That's what I thought. I wish I hadn't have been so scared of learning him! I think I could have great fun with Invoker once I get used to all the spells. I used him as a support/carry with sniper against earthshaker and lifestealer. They just couldn't get close. Great fun.
