300 Reasons not to be an Idiot

Post by guru_mosh » Mon Dec 19, 2011 2:44 pm

Once upon a time in the old forums there was a thread (http://www.frank-turner.com/forum/viewt ... &start=225)containing all the "Reasons not to be an Idiot" from the 7" of the same name. The link isn't working anymore. So does anyone known if there is a list of the reasons anywhere in the new forums?

Don't think it was ever completed, and then more were pressed if I remember rightly so there were over 300 reasons.
