The ongoing issue of domestic violence is one that undoubtedly requires subtlety when being dealt with. I sometimes think that it is one of the most popular offences that go unreported and then you hear the common excuses, that if they were human, would so wish that the life support technology be turned off much sooner than later.
The difficulties of Domestic Violence
There are so many reasons to hate you.
So many ways to hate you.
So many reasons I'm still there.
So many reasons I die inside.
Why? Why do you do this to me?
What have I ever done to deserve this?
If anyone has a problem, it is you.
There's no justifiable reason for domestic violence and so you have no reason.
Yet, you do it.
So who has a problem?

We're not even yet sure what it might be called but there are certain things we can predict. The next iPhone is going to be slimmer, have a bigger screen and come with a faster A5 processor like the iPad 2. It might come with the launch of iOS 5, it might be available in June or in September. It could come with a 1GB RAM, seperate camera flash and NFC Technology. Oh! It will have the same design, Sorry keyboard lovers. According to Peter Misek, it will be called the 'iPhone 4S' and it will be announced in time for the Holidays while distribution deals with Sprint and T-Mobile will also be announced. So here are a couple of images and a video from around the web predicting the features of the next iPhone.

This is the prelude for MI2: The Movie. It's an animation based on the MI2 album. This prelude is from the first track on MI2, where you have the terrorists kidnapping Waje and then M.I saves the day

So It's your friend's birthday and they're probably not around you. Infact, they're so far away, the only thing you can do is to write on their facebook wall or send them a tweet and then you tweet or write'HBD'? Really?

Familiarity. First time I heard the word 'Famz, I knew exactly what it was. A plot by the 'cool teenagers' to make themselves seem even cooler and others inferior. I'm going to base this post on a tweet from @Fallering 'If everything is famz, how's a ni#$a supposed to make friends?'
