The hell they do, son. I could still watch 80's cartoons every day. I'm even stockpiling eighties cartoons on dvd for my future children.

Also, some metal? .. SOME metal? I.-the.-it... What? Everyone knows that metal had attained perfection by the year of our Lord, 1988.

Bullllllllllllllllllllllllllllllls***. I know for a fact that Freakazoid is just as awesome as it was 10+ years ago because I was just watching it on DVD last night, and I still watch Rocko's Modern Life whenever it's on Nicktoons network and no-one else is using the main TV.

'99 was a really good year.


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

Back on topic:

After seeing these pictures I decided that I can never complain about snow again:











Apparently that weather is normal for some places, like Newfoundland and spots in Japan.

I'd heard things were bad down south, but I didn't realise it was that bad. It's not too bad up here in Warwickshire, but it's snowing heavily at the moment.

And thank the lord, I've just been told College shuts at 1! No being stuck here till 4!

Yep, pathetic eh?

It rarely snows here, and when it does everything comes to a standstill. Even with prior warning, no grit is laid down and no preperations made. It's the subject of constant jokes between Londoners, but we don't really mind because it means a day off work. It was like the whole of London came out to play yesterday.

Funny thing is all the people (probably Daily Mail readers) demanding that the government buy Snow Ploughs, and invest in snow equipment -all because for two days out of a year the country goes ga-ga.

"Canada/Moscow doesn't have this problem!" people scream.

There's a reason for that - on average, they have snow for nearly half a year. And, as the news says, it's the worst it's been for two decades.

About 5 inches has been bumped on Warwickshire overnight. Now it's our turn to come to a complete halt...

EDIT: All buses have been cancelled (Coventry, Rugby, Leamington, the list goes on), as well as trains... and i'm not stupid enough to try and walk anywhere.

Pfft. That's nothing. That's what winter is like here normally. Expect right now, where it's like spring.

Trust me though, the snow will come back.

We are fairly lightweight over here - but we don't get it too often, so we go to pieces at what most would call a light shower.

It is fun watching people unexpectedly do 360 turns in a people carrier, though.

No, but there were crowds like that in every park in London. The city went a bit crazy on Monday. There were snow sculptures and people having snowball fights everywhere you looked. We may not get snow very often, but when we do, we make the most of it.
