London

Looks like some funny gun related scenes in this movie. That said, i’m so sick of the continued flood of zombie content.  It all ends up basically being the exact same.

Thoughts?

Ugh what can I say about Britney Spears that’s hasn’t already been said about herpes:

There was some controversy in London where it was filmed.   Not because the song and video is a piece of shit, but because of the gun use in it (huge surprise).

The amount of product placement in the video is astonishing.   What a complex story line too… boyfriend is a dick and gets punched out by a “criminal” (obligatory greasy hair, knuckle tattoos, huge back; neck and chest tattoos) who Britney decides to shack up with.

SHTF in the UK… people are forced to protect themselves with the equivalent of a stick:

Sales of baseball bats and batons have shot up more than 5,000 percent in the last 24 hours on Amazon’s British website, as London suffered its worst violent unrest in decades.

Full story – HERE

The competing arguments used to explain why the riots are happening – HERE

If I ever lived in a place lame enough to not allow guns, i’d probably use my Cold Steel Brooklyn Smasher bat.

Some Eye candy:

  • The Big Picture London riots (Photo set 1) – HERE
  • The Big Picture London riots (Photo set 2) – HERE
Those riots make the fairly recent hockey riots in Vancouver Canada look weak.   Your move Canada…

Question: Do fans in the UK have blades?  Or is there some sort of safe UK fan that uses not sharp paddles to move the air instead? Do they all use those Dyson fans with internal blades? :P

Canadian tourist Ken Lloyd bought the nine-inch model soldier holding a replica SA80 rifle during a visit to the Royal Signals Museum at Blandford Camp, Dorset.

But when he tried to take the #135 keepsake through Gatwick Airport in his hand luggage it triggered a security alert at the scanners.

Officials declared the moulded gun could not go on the plane because it was a ‘firearm’.

*Phew* Thank god they’re paying attention in London. God knows what could have happened on that flight.

Laser guns will replace traditional air pistols in the modern pentathlon at the 2012 London Olympics after a successful trial at the inaugural Youth Olympics.  The technology will reduce the cost of the shooting element of the five-event sport by two thirds, while the improved safety could mean new venues are used.

Full Story – HERE

*Snore* Just when I thought the Olympics couldn’t get any more boring.  At least traditional pellets were susceptible to wind, gravity, etc…

Wake me up when the fencing event using lightsabers, or the current pentathlon guns have their power cranked to blow shit up.

If you grew up in the 80s and 90s are are literate you likely remember the “Choose Your Own Adventure” series of books.  Well the London Metropolitan Police who’s motto is “Working together for a safer London” has put out a bunch of videos using the same style, with the topic being scenarios involving carrying knives in the UK:

Pretty hilarious how bad their laws are there. Most of the scenarios set out in the videos are pretty laughable and unrealistic too.

According to their promo website DropTheWeapons.org, “Picking up a gun or a knife always makes a situation worse never better.” …. Good to know! seems I learn something new every day *rolls eyes*.

And like needed another reason to never visit the UK, they have something there referred to as “Joint Enterprise“, which sounds pretty ridiculous.

If you are still looking for more UK related LOLz, check out the posts I did on Starter Pistols and Knife Surrender Bins.

From me to the London Metro Police: Keep on keeping London safe guys.  I hear it’s a crime-free utopia there hahah
