Faction Bio - Calculated
As we have seen in previous articles, Torn's HOF factions have a remarkable and long history that date back many years. Out of the 2500+ factions in Torn today a huge, huge, portion of them will be filled with inactive members which have joined the slow road to deletion, others are peaceful and some used for keeping money safe. Take away these and you will see that there is just as much war mongering lower down the ranks, perhaps more so than in HOF these days. And so the lamp turns on Calculated.
Purchased around two years ago by ghosty , Calculated have been shooting up the ranks ever since. As a rule of thumb most faction dont give away freebies, however HOF factions, with their rich owners and organised crime money, can more than provide supplies for wars. This was what inspired the name Calculated. They could not afford big cash prizes, points, drugs and FHCs that other factions could, but survived by carefully calculating, funnily enough the name of their sub faction, how much the faction can afford.

An annual tradition that began in the United States, Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving and traditionally seen as the first day of the Christmas shopping period. Retailers came to anticipate this surge in the numbers of shoppers - competition and chaos followed. Stores embarked on a game of promotional one-up-manship, until Black Friday mutated into some kind of blood sport where consumers violently climb over one another to ensure they get the deal they want, before stocks run out.
Black Friday is increasingly referred to in popular culture, and with popular online retailers maintaining a global presence, it was only a matter of time until this plague went viral. This last Friday, for the first time, Black Friday reportedly spread to the UK, France, Germany, and China, with reports of other outbreaks coming in. Police were called to some larger stores, and harrowing vid...
