And like that, he was gone.

Good... Starbucks coffee is shit anyway... I went there expecting a decent coffee... I mean it's hardly too much to ask from a massive multi million dollar coffee chain... All I wanted was a decent coffee, I got a shitty tasting cup of hot shit. In the Canberra CBD there are 2 of them... IN WALKING DISTANCE, whats the damn point. I hope they close both of them. Also... I dunno if this is just Canberra but it looks like Ali Baba are the next starbucks, there are 3 in the city all within walking distance of each other. 2 of them arent even 200 meters apart. But this is handy at 3am... atleast one of them is going to be open, and when you are drunk and in the mood for a kebab there is nothing better icon_razz.gif

EDIT: Funny I would bring that up just as Lord Kabab looks at the thread...

EDIT2: Fucking conspiracy if you ask me...

^ Starbucks is where you get handjobs, not coffee, WTF?

Anyway, more Ali Baba is good, but the one in Weston shut down icon_sad.gif

That was the only one I knew of, I hope there is one in Tuggeranong.

No Starbucks in my state, the goggles do nothing.
What came first, the spamming or the misery? People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching violent videos, that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids reading thousands, literally thousands of posts about anime, 4chan, flaming, goatse and emos. Did I make terrible posts because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I made terrible posts?

PROTIP: Buy your own fucking coffee machine. It really isn't that hard to make a damn coffee properly.

Yes I have used one.

No I didn't fuck it up.

Yes it was fucking delicious.

Moriarte: Ignoring IW.net, is the PC version of Modern Warfare 2 a direct port of the console version?
Infinity Ward: No, PC has custom stuff like mouse control, text chat in game, and graphics settings.

Yeah, went to one once... should have pegged that the 'coffee of the day' was in fact something that had been there all day and was subsequently burnt tasting...

He is just...special. As a fellow Pennsylvanian, I've already disowned him.

Now which on eof you Australians wants to help me colonize Britain? We can split it 50/50.

Make that 50/6million and you got a deal.
