Ah crap! Hate to hear it mate, it's a disease that I hate more than anything having lost to many people to it.
Though it isn't a death sentence mate, father in law was diagnosed with a tumor on his pituitary gland way back in the dark ages of modern medicine and he's still kicking well into his 80's. Surgery options back then are in comparison to today's tech akin to hammer and chisel.

It's entirely likely its going to kill me. But who cares? This is life. I'm not concerned. I'm not releshing the fact that I could spend my last days in a bed, stuck to a IV.

I've already booked a ticket to Turkey, have friends that will cross me into the Kurdish Defense Forces in Northern Iraq. Might as well do something positive before I die.

Demon Spawn game IMO!

I find the prospect of the game abhorrent myself. That said, I don't think its something that should be wiped away or shunned. Does a game like this have a place? Probably, maybe. What I find more disconcerting is the fact that its being so lambasted when other games have done the same in the past. Free speech isn't there to cover the things you like, its there to protect the things you find repugnant. Remember this when you talk about how this game shouldn't exist, because one day it will be your opinion that needs to be defended by free speech laws.

But this attitude is not just a problem in the USA. Here in Canada our police force has become more and more militarized and what happened at Parliament Hill has only amplified law enforcement agencies to want to go even further. Now there are talks of off-duty officers still carrying their sidearms here in Ontario.

It's also a huge issue in the UK, Germany and Oz just to name a few. And as Bota pointed out, its a disconcerting trend.

Law Enforcement officials and organizations in the States are highly militarized and overtly aggressive. Peace Officers, which are public servants by the way, have evolved into Police Officers. And yes, there is a difference between the two. Militarization leads LEO's to adopt a warrior mentality and to think of the communities they serve as enemies. Couple with that the fact that the U.S. represents 5% of the worlds population, yet it has 25% of its prisoners. Prison in this country is seen solely as a form of punishment and not as a avenue for rehabilitation. This probably explains why we have one of the highest recidivism rates in the world.

Nope. I ended up just deleting the files and the custom foliage I created. Some old screens I never posted.
