I read this tonight on the train in tonight's Evening Standard newspaper.

My first thought was "Oh, the poor pathologist".
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Brave kid. Goes to show how low extremists will go when they consider an unarmed teenaged girl enough of a threat to shoot them.

Read this in the paper. Excellent stuff. Maybe they'll think twice before trying to carjack someone.

That made me laugh - good on them........but I also think that they were lucky that one of the gang wasn't carrying a knife - things could have easily been different then :shock:

Hmmm.... I wonder if our crazy 'justice' system will try prosecuting the boxer brothers for GBH? I hope they have more sense.

It's part of a dead fish :? I suppose it's unusual in that something didn't eat it.
