The Ten Commandments (Gangsta Rap Version)

1) I am the Almighty, your God, who brought you outta Egypt when things were tough." And then He told them: "Don't put anyone else before Me.

2) Don't make any carved objects or things that look like what is in heaven or below. And don't bow down to these things like they are anything heavy. Not ever!

3) You shouldn't diss the Almighty's name, using it in cuss words or rapping with one another. It ain't cool and payback's a monster.

4)"Remember the day of the Almighty which is the seventh day. After you've worked six days, give the seventh to the Almighty." (Remember that the Almighty made the heavens and the earth in six days. He rested on the seventh day and blessed it as right-on.)

5) "You shouldn't be takin' nothin' from your homeboys.

6) "Give honor to your mom and dad, and you'll live a long time.

7) "Don't waste nobody.

8) "Don't mess around with someone else's ol' man or ol' lady.

9) "Don't go 'round telling lies on your homebuddies.

10) "Don't want what you can't have, or what your homebuddy has. It ain't cool."

Gary Gygax has died

Gary Gygax, 'Father of D&D,' Dies at 69
By Lore Sjoberg EmailMarch 04, 2008 | 1:43:14 PMCategories: Current Affairs

Gary Gygax, one of the co-creators of the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game, died Tuesday morning at his home in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, according to Stephen Chenault, CEO of Troll Lord Games.

Gygax designed the original D&D game with Dave Arneson in 1974, and went on to create the Dangerous Journeys and Lejendary Adventure RPGs, as well as a number of board games. He also wrote several fantasy novels.

"I don't think I've really grokked it yet," said Mike Mearls, the lead developer of the upcoming 4th edition of Dungeons and Dragons. "He was like the cool uncle that every gamer had. He shaped an entire generation of gamers."

Gygax was not directly involved with Dungeons & Dragons after 1985, and his relationship with his former company, TSR Inc., was not friendly at first. The company sued him over his competing game Dangerous Journeys, and in a 2004 interview with GameSpy he stated that he was "pleased to say" that he thought the cost of the suit and settlement drove TSR to sell the rights to the game.

While reportedly unimpressed with the current edition of the Dungeons and Dragons game, he created adventures and settings that could be used with it, which were published by Troll Lord Games.

Gygax went well beyond the role of game developer and became an icon to gamers, appearing as himself in episodes of Futurama and Code Monkeys and participating in discussions on roleplaying-related message boards.

Gygax had been in poor health for some time, according to his wife Gail. Chenault says he will publish more information, including funeral arrangements, on the Troll Lord message board as it becomes available.

How stupid can you be???

Solicitor relives chainsaw attack by her jealous husband

· Lawyer wed 'Jekyll and Hyde' after court meeting
· Unlimited jail term for 'very dangerous' engineer

A solicitor whose husband attacked her with a chainsaw first met him when she represented him in court for slitting the throat of a former partner.

Civil engineer Patrick Darragh was given an indeterminate jail sentence for public protection yesterday over the chainsaw assault, which left Claire Bates needing 56 stitches to her head and surgery to reattach an ear. He must serve at least four years before he can apply to be released on licence.

Northampton crown court heard that Darragh met Bates in 1998, when he was convicted of attacking Angela Spriggs with a serrated steak knife and jailed for 3½ years, and she was his legal representative. They married when he was released in 2000.


The 52-year-old, who was born in Ballymoney, Northern Ireland, last month pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent on Bates at their remote cottage in Denford, near Thrapston, Northamptonshire, in May.

The court heard yesterday that Darragh, known to his friends as Dessie, was a Jekyll and Hyde character who had flown into a jealous rage after accusing his wife of having an affair with a work colleague he had introduced her to.

He came into the living room with the chainsaw saying: "If I can't have you then nobody will." In a statement read to the court by prosecutor Timothy Spencer QC, she said: "I thought he was going to kill me. I was on the floor by the door. He was putting it (the chainsaw) in my head on my left hand side. I can just remember the noise and him putting it in my head. I don't know how I got away because he didn't stop. "

She went on: "I remember I was lying on my front face down by the back door, Dessie was down by my right hand side. He was not standing, he was on top of me because I could feel pressure on my back. I was screaming saying 'no, please no'." Bates managed to escape to a neighbour's house to call the police. Darragh tried to slash his wrists.

Judge Charles Wide QC said the attack had been horrific. "I have no doubt at all that you are a very dangerous man indeed," he told Darragh. "It may be that you are so dangerous that it will be many, many years before you are released."

He added: "It is claimed from your history that you have it in you to have a real hold over vulnerable women and their continued devotion in spite of your abuse of them might seem to an outsider very strange indeed, but it is a symptom of the hold you had over both of them. You were jealous and controlling and that is what lay at the root of this, becoming extremely violent with a chainsaw."

The judge said it was extraordinary that Bates' injuries had not been more serious. A video of the chainsaw slicing through a tree trunk in 15 seconds, and the bloodstained and torn jumper worn by Bates on the night of the attack, were shown to the court. Graham Buchanan, defending, said she had been a frequent visitor to the category A prison where Darragh has been on remand. "She is an educated lady, a qualified lady," he said. "She knew exactly what had happened with his former partner. She went into it undoubtedly with her eyes open."

In a letter Bates said she felt her husband was a "very kind man deep down" who had loved her but their relationship deteriorated when she miscarried their child in January. Darragh had originally pleaded not guilty to attempted murder, but the prosecution accepted his guilty plea to the lesser charge of grievous bodily harm with intent, after taking his wife's wishes into account.

Hmm - she "first met him when she represented him in court for slitting the throat of a former partner. " - did that not give her an eensy weensy tiny little clue that this guy MIGHT JUST BE A BAD PERSON TO GET INVOLVED WITH!!!?!?!????!??

I mean come on - he tried to MURDER a former partner - just a tiny hint that this guy is a VIOLENT SADISTIC THUG with a penchant for ATTEMPTING TO KILL WOMEN.

Definitely a candidate for an honourary Darwin Award. It's one thing if you get involved with someone who seems nice, but later turns out to be abusive. It's just plain INSANE to get involved with someone who's proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are a WOMEN HATING PSYCHOPATH!!!!!!

And the fact she COLLUDED in getting his charges downgraded? So he's out earlier and free to hurt or KILL somebody else????? Have she totally lost the FUCKING PLOT?

I give up. I really do. Some people are just beyond any rational analysis. How can you be intelligent enough to qualify as a solicitor but be so imbecelic as to think it's a good idea to get involved with a man PIECE OF SHIT like that?
