    Great photos mate. I went in 2012 only had a snapshot camera and it developed a fault, no pun intended.

    Great pics, somewhere I have always wanted to go but its a hard sell to the Mrs.
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    Awesome. I really do want to visit there some time. Just trying to sell that to the other half would be an epic fail from the start. Even if I were to go, she probably wouldn't let me back in the house when I got back

    How did you go about organising that mate? Travel company and what precautions did you need to take when you were there besides the obvious?

    I was looking around and easily recognising some of the scenery that was used such as the building that was used for shooting the sniper rifle ("coriolis effect"), the fun fair and the swimming pool. So many places have been stripped by metal thieves or had scenes set up like gas masks strewn around the school. I really enjoyed the visit
