I've already blogged twice today, so I thought why not do it again!
Andy (Brown) just sent me the link to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles preview. Looks awesome!
update: and Clerks 2!!
Which was your favourite and why?

Apologies for the obscene title, I'm slightly pissed off. This is all due to the fact that I think my glandular fever is coming back. I'm tired all time again, and I have this symptom that I had when I was in the peak of my last bout of mono.
What happens is I drift around and am not aware of the environment I'm in. I have dulled emotions, don't think much about anything and make a lot of stupid mistakes. It is very hard to explain, but it is like living in a dream. You drift from one thing to another without being able to remember getting there, you have to work really hard to concentrate on something, even just walking down the road from one persons house to another, you have to try hard to realise that you're actually walking down a road. Thats the best I can do to describe it, but summary = it is shit. When I was revising, I had good days and bad days, but the good days were so much better than this. I'm going to rest up, eat healthily and drink plenty of water. Then we'll see.

#5 Applied Social Psychology
Expected mark: 30–45%
This paper didn't go too badly despite what others think. Mainly because I revised the right things and they didn't. Well it still wasn't great, but I don't think I did too badly.
Absolutely shattered now though.

Will said that the last post was not interesting in any way and that it was too vague for his liking; too much like a horoscope.
Basically, that was kind of the point of some of it. Due to my head being stuck in psychology journals and books about 10/12 hours a day at the moment, I don't actually have any idea of what state world politics are in. I don't know much of who has done what, and what they'd said. I don't know how the economies are faring in each of the major countries, and I don't know what interests the major nations have in each other and their respective resources.
Whilst I do have a few vague notions, they're not enough to make a valid prediction. Too many times have researchers/writers witnessed an event, looked back and said, look there are the indicators, why did we not see it coming? So this is less of "I think something is going to happen" blog entry, but more of a "I think something is going to happen, but Im not going to make a prediction until I've researched it more and thought about it when I've got some free time, so I'm just saying that I'll be doing this and would love input from other people about the state of affairs throughout the world."
So this is for you Will: horoscope like, vague and fairly pointless.
I keep wanting to blog, mainly about one thing. This I believe can be summed up in a paragraph. If you are already bored: please leave, it won't get any better.
The main idea, is that history repeats itself: it works in cycles – mainly because humans are stupid and don't learn from their mistakes. The argument is that a lot of the events recently are building up to something big. Things like all the car plant closures, government scandals, Iraq/Afghanistan/Iran?, US/UK/French relations, Iran's Nuclear Regime etc etc. I have this feeling that it is all building up to something and can be compared to previous issues before other world wars. I am actually so interested, that I plan to do some research and write a bit of an essay on it at some point.
The problem was, I didn't want it all to happen in the next 15 days and then no one accept it when I said "I told you so."
So this is me covering my bases.

Supposedly I'm most like Aragorn from Lord of the Rings. Thats pretty cool: he was king of all men and pretty cool from what I remember. Lol, silly online questionnaires!
On a more christmassy note; if anyone is stuck for ideas for presents for me (I know you are all getting me something nice..) then I'd settle for some Mountain Dew :)

Aside from doing some admin faff and drinking tea (oh and starting at some books – Visual Perception and Social psychology of organising) I decided to work on this years kit design a bit more.
So here is my first draft kit design:
Because of the poor quality image I appreciate its difficult to see what the bottom right logo says. It says warwick bears ultimate frisbee, with claw marks going through it.
