Postby JP » Wed May 25, 2011 8:44 am

Over the moon - second year running i somehow managed to sneak in. Last year i won a wildcard place by winning a comp, this year from reserves.

Congrats dude!

Didn't Paul Wood win this last year? Is he not defending the title?

So awesome JP. So awesome.

"The worker has the right to leave his boss, but can she do it? And if she does quit him, is it in order to lead a free life; where she will have no master but herself? No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."
