Starcraft was really impressive for its time, a lot of in-depth story lines and huge array of units and buildings, though quite similar to warcraft 2 (yes i konw westwood did both etc)

Someone's got their Blizzard and Westwood Studios mixed up  ;D

I preferred Warcraft 2 to Warcraft 3, because it was aimed at an older audience.  Warcraft 3, and subsequently WoW, is miles too cartoony for my liking, and so I never really was able to get into either of them.  Warcraft 2 orcs are downright brutal though.  And a decent shade of green.

Well, I was threatened with the prospect of having a screwdiver lodged into my ribs on thursday by a couple of 14-16 year old shits who come into my parents store to try and steal the really big permanent markers for graffitti... one of them threatened my mum once, and then I came out from round back and gave them an earful, but they recognised me, walking around Rockingham in their 'gang' of friends.  Didnt produce the screwedriver they were threatening me with, but a few words were exchanged that managed to get them to leave me alone and keep walking in the opposite direction... quite lucky really, when I think about it.

Oh, that's another example of the white kids in Rockingham acting all tough like.. (although they had a token Aboriginial boy there so they could play the racism card)  There should be laws stopping kids doing shit like that, not a bunch of pissweak jokes that get told to them when they get picked up for it.

There isnt anything wrong with Church youth groups, as long as you belong to the right kind of group.  Groups that consist of conservatives bashing bibles over your heads arent fun, but as far as groups at highschool go, the group I was part of was rather on the cool side.  For instance, we were looking for a theme for a camp, and I convinced someone else to suggest demonology  ;D  Our adult assistant (the group doesnt call them teachers, because not all of the people that help out -are- teachers, and they dont have the same role as a teacher) was all for it, and was going to get in touch with a real Demonologist, who performs real exorcisms, not the lame, over-acted and over-produced television exorcisms.  We changed the topic to the mis-representation of the goth sub-culture in the end though, because it was more relevant to our lives.

Teaching isnt a goal that I can ever fulfill, because people are always going to be ignorant, or lacking knowledge.  All I can do is try and educate the few that would pass through my classrooms, and hope they in turn teach their friends some stuff, and that spreads out from there.  I dont want to be a teacher for the achievement of becoming a teacher, I want to become a teacher because I want to teach people, which is never ending.  Besides, I plan on studying part time while teaching, and moving into lecturing, down the track.

As for people calling Arts degrees "wanky" or other such nonsense, it depends on your attitude.  Quite a few people are absolute cockbites when it comes to their arts degrees, but others actually do the work, and plan on using it for a purpose.  I'm doing an Arts degree at the moment, double majoring in English Literature and Philosophy, and afterwards I'll be completing a dip-ed, so I'll have, in effect, two qualifications.  If this helps me get a job in Iceland, where I'd like to live some of my years, I'm all the happier for it.  It will also land me a job in teaching, where I'll be a male english teacher, with good employment prospects and I'll also be a qualified philosophy teacher (philosophy is being introduced as a subject from years 1 to 12 in the new education system btw)

Like with most degrees, if you've got direction you'll get there.  If you are doing it just to do it, the chances are you'll pull out/get bored.  The same goes for trades.

There should be a top-secret meeting at the Metal Club on Saturday night to discuss details.  Make it open-house though, because top-secret meetings that no-one knows about tend to get a low level of attendance.

Certainly a fundraiser event or two would be a good idea looking at those costs.

Well, I live in Rockingham, and have to say that seeing as I'm rather on the insular side, I ignore most of the shit that happens.  That said, my parents have a shop on an aforementioned Kent St. and we had some lame-arse 14 year olds come in trying to steal some large permanent markers.  When we asked them to leave they called us racist (hell, only one of the 3 was 'black' and he didnt say anything at all really) and other assorted shit.  We have our bad points, but for the most part I dont get hassled.  Being 6'5" has that effect on little spinless shits (and we dont have much else other than weak, spineless shits).  Oh, and Rockingham is actually an autonomous city, not a suburb of Perth.  Still considered within the metropolitan boundaries mind you.  Technicalities are pointless at times.
