Posted:A mate of mine accidently knocked over a jug of beer that me and another mate just bought.

To make up for it he spent the last of his money and bought us each a pint.

He is a good man. He acted

Posted:A more PC version can be found in the movie "Helloboy": "In the absence of light, darkness prevails."
