You're a loony. And everyone else knows it. And you know it.

Rusty, what you are is that bloke in the pub whose learnt one argument that sounds clever, so you've been repeating it over and over to show how smart you are while everyone pretends to listen hoping you'll shut the fuck up.

How's that smartness working out for you? Big success? House in the country? Yacht?

You've used Werner Von Braun, whose expertise was chemical rockets, classical mechanics and fluid mechanics and mixed it a big bowl of weird Nazi super scientist weirdness. Toward the end of the war they were filling the noses of V2s with concrete because there wasn't enough explosive available. Which as I'm sure you are aware is not exactly super science.

Nothing you've mentioned exists in the scientific literature. Nothing exists outside of crackpot blogs where everyone reinforces each others beliefs.

Sorely tempted, but I think the insurance on it would cost about the same again for me.

Why's it SORNed?

Oh shit, Rusty (Of the family Starfish), you've done it now.


There are probably secret government assassins coming after each and every one of us now that you've pulled the wool from our eyes.

I originally thought you were just a misguided libertarian, but shit. It turns out you're some kind of underground freedom fighter.
Who works within the confines of common law.

Sorry, but I do know who Hayes is. He went to jail because her invoked clause 61 of the Magna Carta as a 'Tax Protest', which isn't valid.

The only references to him being disappeared are on freemen blogs.

Surely if he, like you pretend to, knew his way around the law, he wouldn't have gone to prison? Or is that just me?

It amuses me that you drop to the language of class-warfare to put yourself above any argument. I also find it amusing that you haven't posted any source documents, as we're both aware they're just going to be links to articles written inline by idiotic freemen.


You're a tool. You don't know what you're talking about.

Oops! Perhaps Schopenhauers truth theory has already reached the second stage. :lol

Well thank you for the potted history lesson breadlord but we could have googled that for ourselves. I'm not sure what those comments are meant to add to the discussion though? You don't say if you believe the refutation of statute law has any basis in Common law?  Is it valid? Or even how you know this? Forget Schopenhauer, what is your evaluation of the question? Surely you would know if you are qualified to make such bold statements, or are you prepared to condemn people as 'mentalists' without even looking into the facts? Please tell us what you know so we can all go check what you say against cold empirical evidence. :)


Right then, here we go...

I am well aware of the arguments you're spouting off. I've been involved with the occupy movement, and anti-Tory groups in general, and this dreck was pushed at a lot of us. Most of us however, aren't conspiracy nuts. We just want to see people pay what they owe.

The position you are espousing is that of the "Freemen on the land", a libertarian group who consider statutory law to be a series of contracts that can be opted out of by speaking the right words - if you send a cheque for a pound on a £2,000 bill it should clear the whole thing if you write "In full and final settlement". That kind of thing.

Essentially, the argument goes that statutory law, that is, law that is codified is merely a contract, and that you can hack your way through the system, right? Common law, or case law is meant to be the only real law that applies to a person, and not a legal entity joined to them. Generally this takes the form of invoking 61st clause of the Magna Carta. This gave the barons the right to usurp the king's power. But it only applied for three months and was repealed by the only entity who could judge a king at the time, the Pope

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magna_Carta#Clause_61

However, if it's the case that common law can override the statutory, then surely court, the common law body should recognise them, right?
Errr. No. The case law supports the opposite. Every time someone tries to invoke freeman arguments they get shot the fuck down. Here's just a couple of hilarious examples:

http://www.westerntelegraph.co.uk/news/9918044.Jail_for_man_who_refused__to_be_governed_/
http://www.scotsman.com/news/freemen-are-told-they-will-be-tried-1-1523844

http://bc.ctvnews.ca/a-person-is-a-person-b-c-judge-rules-1.524099

In all cases, it's some deluded twat who gets caught doing something, then uses pseudolaw to bullshit their way out of it. It doesn't work. Ever.

Frankly, what seems to have happened here is that you committed ABH and were jailed for it. You weren't afforded the same treatment as others having committed the same crime, for which it is a sensible thing to be pissed about. However, you have since concluded that the government has no right to have tried you, not that rich people have an advantage. This might be all balled up with hate for fucking Thatcher, which is also a fine thing in itself.

Feel free to tell me that the UK is under maritime law.
Or that I can avoid speeding tickets by referring to myself as "Tom, of the family Bradshaw" as it dissociates me from my legal Strawman
Or that the meaning of words used in legal documents can be twisted to mean anything at all.

NONE of what you have said is true
It is ALL angry armchair politics
There is no global conspiracy designed to keep us in serfdom

I don't know you, you could be a top lad, but this kind of thing is mental, and beneath you.

Schopenhauer was a fucking mental case who believed women were innately servile and whose mentalist views were a major influence on Nietzsche, and was in vogue in Germany in the earlier part of the 20th Century.

Refutation of statutory law is one of those arguments mentalists who scream they can't be arrested because of the Magna Carta use.

More than anything, have him *hold* the cameras in question. What decided Nikon for me over Canon was that when I held two cameras at a similar pricepoint (The D70s and the 400D, but could be the 450D, was a while ago), the Nikon felt right, and the Canon felt like a toy.

My Galaxy Nexus has had JellyBean on it for two months now...

HTC's hardware isn't the problem (Although I take issue with the build-quality of their sliding keyboard units), it's the Sense UI I dislike. I also dislike TouchWiz, but it's easier to put stock android on Samsung devices.

The Nikon mount is fully compatible across the range.  However not all the features on the latest Nikon lenses will work with all cameras across the Nikon lens.
Yes, this is true. The lower end models don't have the focus motor in body, so you have to use the newer S lenses.

As for the *really* old lenses, they're pre AI; they don't know what aperture they're on, so they can meter incorrectly. But everything mid range and above incorporates the old systems so you can still use them.

Ubuntu's got some OK tooling for getting ndiswrapper configured easily. ATIs drivers are a bag of wank, yes. I tend to turn them off in favour of the x.org versions.

Glad you're liking it. It's a shit-ton nicer than windows if you don't play games. You'll soon be recompiling your kernel with the best of us.

I'd skip the 3100; It's a decent enough camera but it's a bit of a toy SLR. I'd jump up a level and go for the 5100:

One of the reasons people choose Nikon over Canon is that you can get lenses from 40 years ago that will work on the most recent body, it's all backward compatible. Canon tend to chuck out their lens systems after fifteen years or so.

Bradshaw's recommendation: Get a Pivos Xios media centre;
http://www.pivosgroup.com/xios.html


It's a tiny box, about the size of two packs of cards and plugs into your HDMI socket. You run XBMC on it and stream the media from CIFS shares on computers around the house. I've got one here and I'm blown away by it. It runs the same software as my home theatre PC at home, but it's TINY. It's got B/G/N wifi inside it, too.


Not sure if they send to the UK, but I don't mind picking one up here and sending it on when I get back next week.

Go for the Samsung. TouchWiz is a lot nicer than HTC Sense in my opinion.


Of course, you could be a man and get the Galaxy nexus. All about the Google experience, yo.

« on: 25 September 2012, 03:32:04 PM »
Some lad is selling his son's bike because he can't be trusted, apparently. So I might be getting a Honda CB900 dirt cheap.


Apparently it's been left in a garage for two months and now isn't running. Rather than telling him to fix it and buy it running, thinking of telling him to leave it and buy it as a non-runner so I can hammer him on price. What do you reckon? Service the carbs and it should be alright?


Carbs. Blech. It's the 21st century, people. Get with the fuel-injected cool kids, people.

Ubuntu is probably your best bet for getting everything working, but they're insisting on using their own stupid Unity UI, which everyone pulls off and replaces with Gnome classic. But don't worry about that for now.



Download the livecd and see what's what. Broadcom drivers are normally OK on the more recent releases.

Any locksmith who advertises as "auto-locksmith", and older than 40 should be able to do it. I had to get one out to cut a key from the ignition barrel of my Ford Capri when come cunt nicked off with my bag.


Be prepared to pay, though.

First bike I ever rode was a clutchless underbone in Cambodia - Honda Wave 125.
CBT on a CG125. Which was horrid. Far, far, far too small.
DAS bike was a 600 Divvy, which was dull as dishwater.
