  12. If you're at the stage where you are considering it, then don't waste another second and just do it. Like j7 says, your brain makes the decision for you... If it's telling you to consider it, then get it done. The opposite would be if you're telling yourself that you are going to be okay, there's no indication of that from what you've told us here. The sooner you get things happening, the sooner you can get on top of it.

    Iun, well done on being a decent human being 99% of people would have ignored it, you're the 1% and I think you did an incredible thing for getting involved! I'd guess you already know this.. but the reason why no one else got involved it because everyone thought you were just some fuckbag involved in an altercation with another couple of fuckbags. =/ No one knows you're a decent human being, everyone just assumes you're up to no good the minute they see you involved in an altercation. If the situation ever presents itself again, make sure you yell out exactly what it is you're doing... "THIS FUCKER IS PICKPOCKETING A LADIES HANDBAG"... Literally scream it out, you will be surprised at how many other decent human beings there are in the world waiting for an opportunity to do their bit. Massive cudos for doing you're bit dude, and don't feel bad about it at all. 99/100 people would have ignored the situation... Unfortunately real-life isn't the movies... one vs two is a bigger mismatch than it's made out to be =/

  15. How I Met Your Mother

    Hrmmm, I found it a little dull/meaningless. The robin sparkles thing was lacklustre... though a cameo from geddy lee was appreciated :p
  16. Fruit.

    I have a similar problem with pineapple. I loooooove pineapple, used to eat it all the time, and I love pineapple juice... But somewhere around the age of 19, any time I would eat it I'd be on the toilet within a few minutes. The worst was one time that I had a tropical fruit juice after tennis one day.. My arms started to go numb, and then my face... :S scary stuff, 15 minutes with my head in the toilet bowl shortly afterwards fixed the numbness... massive sadface.
  17. Gamefaqs Daily Poll

    haha, yerp... stupid steam sale.. *grumble*
  18. bad stuff thread.

    I can't stand that, harry hardcores. I actually gave up sport for a long time because I was sick of being around those kind of people.. players and coaches who just don't seem to understand that at the end of the day it's just a game. I'm quite good at sports, but I just couldn't stand the scene.. no one seems to understand that you could want to be good, and play for the good teams, and not be a complete fucking twat at the same time =/ Anyways, all the sport I play now is strictly with mates. Some of the teams I play in now are quite good, and I always like to be competitive. But you can try and win the game without being a dick. For example, if I know that I have accidentally fouled someone, I immediately stop, put my hand up and help them up, and ask them if they're okay. Any time I seem to get fouled, the opponent plays on as though he's done nothing wrong... even if he gets blown for the foul. I don't understand this mentality, (especially) not at this level anyway. Unfortunately I have a short fuse, and like to.. explain.. to people that there's no reason to be a tool So I lead this slightly hypocritical line where I encourage fair play, but get yellow carded almost once a game for my explanations I don't think I've ever been carded for a bad tackle =/ haha... Luckily in my 5-a-side comps there's no carry over on cards, but in my 11-a-side team I have to really try to let things slide =/
