CM review

Amazon review
Waste of money., March 19, 2006
Reviewer: amirlass2 from london United Kingdom
Do not buy this game!!! It takes an age to load, even on an Intel Pentium PC with 1024mb of ram and 3.4Ghz!!!

Transfer system is unrealistic; any high bid will be accepted.
Tactics do not influence the game.
So many flaws.


As expected...


8. David Hasselhoff can count backwards from infinity.

I feel rough

I went out for a quick drink after work and ended up having 7 pints of stella.


This weekend I will mostly be sleeping.

7. The popular videogame "Doom" is based loosely around the time Satan
borrowed two bucks from David Hasselhoff and forgot to pay him back.

Entering an Empire on-line competition

I won a signed copy of the script for A Cock and Bull Story

Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon.

It's the second thing that i've won from them. Last year I won The Name of the Rose.
Do good things happen in 3s?

No. 2: Win the poker
No. 3: Get a lottery ticket and win the lottery...

Get your shades ready

It's poker eveing again this Saturday.

What are the stakes? I think last time it was £20. Is that okay with everyone?

Can someone do the honours and get a crate of Fosters or some such (whatever's on special)?

Is everyone happy with just gettting a load of frozen pizzas too?

I should be finished at the rugby club by 7 / 8.

See you there.

Just been looking at my pay slips and have worked out that I will have earned (pre tax) just over £100k during my 3 and a half years at Lloyds!


6. In an average living room there are 1,242 objects David Hasselhoff
could use to kill you, including the room itself.

Remote-controlled sharks

The Pentagon is working on using remote-controlled sharks as stealth spies.

Engineers funded by the US military have created a neural implant designed to enable a shark's brain signals to be manipulated remotely.

The Pentagon hopes to exploit sharks' natural ability to glide quietly through the water, sense delicate electrical gradients and follow chemical trails, reports New Scientist.

The project, funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, was presented at the Ocean Sciences Meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Neural implants consist of a series of electrodes are embedded into the animal's brain, which can then be used to stimulate various functional areas.

Biologist Jelle Atema of Boston University and his students are using them to "steer" spiny dogfish in a tank via a phantom odour.

Project engineer Walter Gomes, of the Naval Undersea Warfare Centre, says the next step will be to implant the device into blue sharks and release them into the ocean off the coast of Florida.
