    hey man, that blows.

    i hate it when people feel that they have a right to take your stuff, or for some other reason feel the need. worst i've had happen to me personally is someone took 10 bucks worth of arcade tokens from the floor while i wasnt paying attention(i was like, 6 at the time, so it was my whole allowance for the month), but a couple of my friends have had a buncha stuff stolen from their cars and what not, it really sucks. hate to hear it.

    MrDT : damn!

    About 2 years ago, my parents house got robbed - they smashed the front door down, and took out tv, video, and my dads computer (think it was an Athlon 800) - we weren't actually that bothered about the stolen stuff as it was all covered by insurance, but it was just the thought of someone being in our house, and we don't know who!

    Like with your robbery, the weird thing was, they left a load of stuff behind which they easyily could of took as well (in the living room, they only took the tv and video, even though there were many other things in there that were worth soo much more. And the room with the computer also contained my dads laptop, his camera (very expensive), a second computer, printer/scanner...)

    The other strange thing was they went upstairs into my parents room and looked through my dads sock draw (where we used to keep loads of change (and I mean loads) in containers) - that was the only draw that was left open (which means the only one they looked in) - how would they know that he used to keep money in there?!?!?

    anywho...it all got sorted and we ended up with a nice 28" widescreen tv, matching video, and the new(er) computer...

    VadimtheConqueror: You Mooch! Wouldn't bother me any just as long as you are as anal about handling the disks.

    Little Story: I took my copy of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 to exchange it and they have to take the disk out and see if it is in proper shape for store credit. The girl opened the case and popped the disk out, holding it like a frisbee. She proceeds to say that the disk looks like it hasn't even been used. I looked at her with my best stink-eye and said, "Because I never touched the bottom of this disk like you are." I wanted to freak out on her, I truly felt the urge to slap her.

    Anyway, fixed the sig. It was late when I put it up.

    MrDT: That sucks a fierce one that someone would come in and snatch your stuff. At least the bright side is that the things that you really cherish aren't gone. It's a good thing that the majority of small-timers never seem to know the value of things they are looking to steal. It's like, they know what is worth stealing, but the completly dork out when they walk through the door.

    Feelin' ya man, I had two cars that were broken into a total of three times.... in front of my parents house with myself inside. I have a slight paranoia problem now. When I moved out, I watched every car that drove by for about 2 months, I know every face and vehicle that regularly drive by my house. I did the same thing at my parents house. It's partially why I am up this late on the computer. Damn, it's 2:30 a.m., I have to be at work at 8.

    i cant stand it when i see people doing that. it's disturbing to see. heck, even when i rent dvds, i'll take the thing out of the case and i cringe when i look at the bottoms of these things. new release dvds, and the bottom looks like it's been sitting on a desk for a couple years.

    It just kills me that some people will say that they take care of their CD/DVDs as anally as I do. Then, five minutes later in the car, you see them just tossing their disks all over the place. Hell, I still don't like the idea of CD cases where the disks slide into pockets. It's just the easiest way to carry them all.

    BTW, bought another DVD today! Bought DevilMan to go with DevilLady. Funky translation and tons of cussing, kinda funny the amount curse words there are in 100 minutes.

    Collection is at 321! I can see it now, just enough money to keep the electricity on so I can watch movies. :sigh:

    joe the dishwasher: You have some Python, so you are on the right track. Heheh

    The Moreland: Get it up man, I wanna see it. (oh, now that is going to be taken out of context, but i'll leave it because it is funny).


    Update: Bought two more DVDs today, the first two of the Hellsing series. Collection is at 323.

    kiwi-x: The Dark Crystal is one of those kick@ss classics. I haven't seen pi yet, though I have heard that is was pretty good. What are your thoughts?

    Update: None, but i'm sure that two more will be added soon. The last two Hellsing DVDs will be bought by Thursday, the series is that good! I highly reccommend it if you are a fan of anime.

    Pi is great.. my opinion might be biased thought, as this movie is about mathematical theory (very general) and my being a physicist...

    next.. i'm quite the fan of anime, but i never got to liking hellsing.. i really do like 'noir' though :clap: one of my favorites :clap:
