There was a television movie made about him and was played last night. Showing his background. It was quite interesting.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

You're sure that's not Ireland?
I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

While not technically a news story per se, this image literally shocked me to the core. The Golden Dawn Party in Greece, who are literally neo nazis (and doing well in the polls might I add), have attacked a man while the police just watched. This is what he was tweeting.

Apparently, at any rate.

Yeah... I'm not buying into it based on that question.

I don't know if I buy the actual tweets, but the fact that Golden Dawn is fricken' scary I certainly buy into.

Economically, it's arguable that Greece is in as bad a mess as 1930s Germany. Which I know fires off Godwin's Law, but even so - GD are a worrying, worrying political force.

I think he was just using Twitter to spread out his experience... and was hampered by the character limit used by Twitter. I think he was narrating what happened to him after the whole incident, rather than being able to type while his glasses were knocked off.

Reminds me of the Ghurka who killed 32 of the enemy single-handedly. His GPMG ran out of ammunition so he "neutralised" some using his tripod. Guys are insane.

I remember a news story while ago of a Gurkha who'd just retired and was travelling on a train (in India I think) when it was attacked by an armed gang of muggers. Then they started telling a girl to strip so he attacked them and injured a fair number before the rest ran away. He was offered a senior position in the army if he re-enlisted after that.
