"Stop complaining. Englands sucks, and prizes are just about the only thing which doesn't have at least 5x as much tax as it should do. Living over here is damn expensive, and by the way Americans seem to think that the Brits get free houses. We don't get free houses. "


Yeah... its called a council house... Tax credits... I know because I am living in a house funded by them.

We also get jobseekers allowance.. which is like free money all ya have to do is search for a job... i mean hell i had my 4 thousand pound education paid for me and i am still getting the government to pay for my education at uni...


As for the tax.. well 17.5% is nothing when you consider how much our currency is worth... Which is to say 1 pound is 2 dollars. Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

"$4,000 an hour isn't too bad" your right 5000 competition i may not win and lose all rights to my product dispite being paid... for an entire branding and packageing stratergy worth 30,000 pounds which a team of designers would work on is totally worth it... But what do I know i am just some guy living in a free house, on some course which happpens to specialise in advertising... pfft silly me Laughing Laughing Laughing

And in the world of internet competitions they decided (A) only america can have it... this is why I dont drink pepsi... and I dont think I ever will.

Seriously, do you think they are gonna have it open for every country in the world? I'm guessing that they restrict it because they are an american company and dont want to do international legal proceedings.

Another bullshit competition for the chance to get ripped off. whoooo yeah... thanks for that.

Eve didn't you say you had to enter.

Oh, and if you get say, $8,000 after taxes, and you worked say, two hours on it. $4,000 an hour isn't too bad


Cos last i heard discrimination was the best way to avoid legal procedings Laughing Laughing Laughing

As for who called... Posting and potentially bs compo merits me saying what a bs compo... your lucky i take the time too list reasons...

4000 pounds perhour... haha thats assuming you win... if you lose your arnt going to get paid and did i mention they hve a number of get out clauses... no i don think i did. either way youll be lucky if you see a dime...

And on that bomb shell i am going to buy a lottery ticket... cos i stand more chance winning money on that than i have winning from that pepsi compo

Are you serious? You think its discrimination if a company only has a contest open in the country where they are based?

You get FREE houses!!!!! Surprised


Scion and I were talking about this ages ago and he mentioned that we get free houses or something.

Just saying Americans don't get free houses, why the hell would Brits get free houses?! < The beauty of the media


As far as i know we operate the same sort of system as you guys, the poorer you are, the more random free stuff you get, leaving the rest of us to clear up the mess.

By the way Marx... Job seekers allowance is about 50/week isn't it. You can't live off that.
