Lately haven't had much time posting here, I can barely even keep up with the news, since I'm spending a few weeks in Norway and obviously don't spend as much time at the PC. Listening to some Helwani interviews now, good stuff.
Also, is it me or is Evans jacked as shit? It's a small pic, but still, looks like Cheick.

M.C you don't own a cell phone?

Hope to see you posting more, Leed. Have fun in Norway, though, is nice to be on vacation? I assume vacation anyways.

What's with all the MMA-Facebook spammers popping up the last few days? I've spam killed like a million of them.

Damn you, facebook! Damn you to HELLLLLLLLLL!

Yeah, it's vacation. I'm living in a county at the longest fjord in Norway. Mountains all around and the fjord just a few min walk away, the scenery here is just awesome, and the weather, thanfully, is too!

I could have got a iPhone, but I HATE phones. I never will have a cell phone, I hate being able to be contacted 24/7 by people. I like my alone time more often than not, as it really interrupts my spank sessions.
Fair enough, for everything else but the sound itself iPod touch is unbeaten

Just read this tweet, found it pretty hilarious:

Accidentally tased myself in the neck with my Birthday stun gun. Hurt like hell.

I just woke up and read some of the latest MMA news. Now I don't feel like watching a ZUFFA event ever again. I'm not even angry, I'm just sad when I think about how great it all was before the UFC and WEC merged and before ZUFFA bought Strikeforce. I was looking forward to every WEC card like it was my birthday and the HW GP was not a farce yet. Now we just have this monster called ZUFFA treat fighters like high-class hookers, the FW and BW divisions aren't getting half the attention they deserve, the HW GP got destroyed and ZUFFA doesn't seem to care that they're producing more collateral damage than a napalm bomb.

BBC still has the rights to show half the races live next year as well (10 of 20), but that is really just spitting in the face of us fans, watching half a season would be like watching half a football-game - Why bother?
Plus if you pay for the Sky coverage you're actually only paying for 10 races, since the last 10 are still on free TV.

Here in Denmark we, luckily, do also have local, live, Danish coverage of F1, but the BBC produces the best coverage in the world, nothing else really measures up. Which is why it's such a shame.

And I know a big part of the public in the UK are outraged by this development, and so am I, to a lesser extent though.

Some people who have been following Formula 1 since 1948, 1949, 1950 and so on have all decided that come next year it will be the end. Some doesn't want to pay the subscribtion, some simply can't... Which is a damn shame to say the least.

When Formula 1 came back to BBC in 2009 Bernie Ecclestone (Owner of Formula 1) stated that the sport was "about the fans" and that the masses came before the money, which was obviously a lie.

On a side note, this is also a very bad move for the sport itself. The teams rely on BIG sponsorships, which are possible because of the many million people watching in the UK. Next year the viewing numbers may fall by 50% which will negatively effect sponsorships and thereby the technology and development in the sport, which is what F1 is all about. Making a car as fast as possible, faster than any other racing series in the world. Formula 1 is suppossed to be the best of the best, and I hope it stays that way.
I like F1, but i believe this is the most exciting form of motorsport --->

Gravel, asphalt, tarmac, mud, rocks, dirt, sand, in the woods, in the mountains, in the desert, water, ice, snow, "hot" tempertatures, "cold" temperatures - you name it!

These drivers are just incredible.

PS: i'm also a big Moto GP fan - Valentino Rossi especially
