  1. I assume the wallet was both on the bus and not on the bus until he found it.

  2. Said to my mate, "I just watched that film about the Nazis." He said, "Oh what, the one with Adolf in?" I said, "No mate, you're thinking of 'Flipper', this was just about the Nazis."

  3. It's strange as well, if you're in that situation, but decide to move on, then finding everywhere else is not as good - when you go back to the first place, that's not as good, either.

  4. Something that pisses me off is when your in a good boozer with a prime position, nice and comfy and then someone suggests you move on. Why? The next pub is always shitter and you end up strung out standing in a corridor. I'm all up for pub crawls and organise quite a few but sometimes it's OK just to stay.

  7. When a company gives you a 'time window' for arrival (be it delivery, repair, quote etc), what they should actually say is this: Dear Mr Wazza we will arrive between 12-5pm what this means is, if you wait in all day, we will arrive at 4:59pm if you dare leave your house for even ONE GODDAMN MINUTE during this time, then we will arrive then. Thank you for your custom.

  8. A guy from work got here late, sat down, then realised he'd lost his wallet. So he walked back home, retracing his steps, trying to find it. 40 minutes later he calls in to say he's found his wallet, but he can't find his phone, and asks us to take a look around for it. It's not here. He left it on the train. It's the third time this month he's lost his phone. 2 hours later, he's not here. I'm expecting him to walk in with his wallet and his phone, wondering where his shoes are. He's either the clumsiest most forgetful person in the world, or a genius who's figured out how to

  9. I think there is Kohli, Smith and Williamson, and then Root probably best of the rest. Joe consistently makes runs, but he doesn't produce nearly enough match-winning innings for my liking.

  10. The mural that is the centre of the row (facebook posts by Corbyn, &c.) didn't 'make fun of holocaust', did it? It obviously pursued the stupid, anti-semitic trope that Jews somehow control the world by depicting a group of obviously Jewish looking old men (which the artist later admitted were to represent the 'Rothschilds' et al) sat around a monopoly board on the backs of some (naked?) others. That is the basis of the (quite correct, in my opinion) accusation of anti-semitism against the artist and the mural itself.

  11. ICC punishments were pretty much the same as any other players received in the past. Cricket Australia have been quite within their rights to add to the punishment, as have the IPL. The Indian are not exactly fans of Smith and Warner, so I imagine they were pretty chuffed at the opportunity to twist the knife. They caught Smith cheating in the last series in India but he got away with it. This situation is a little different from previous situations. It's not one player with a bit of dirt in his pocket or a mint in his mouth. Warner has given the young guy sandpaper and taught him (b

  12. I did a full collection for a project at university when we had Reebok as manufacturer, and then at Puma I put some designs together, just to see how my new work would look. As chance would have it, the marketing team at Puma tried to get the Villa deal. The story goes that a notorious former chairman was running a "closed book" bidding process, but once he had a few bids in he "opened the book" to a couple of brands to try and get the price up. Puma found out and pulled out immediately. They would've been the highest bidder, but we ended up with a less well-known brand and less money.

  17. I could not agree more......it tries to negate the ability to interpret all the effective bits in a game. take passes for instance......a 100%pass rate only tells you so much, it doesn't value the quality of the pass or the significance/value of the effect. There is no substitute for watching a game.

  18. It is a stretch and it's a stretch that, not unintentionally, muddies the waters considerably. It's a stretch that permits you to do what you have done above in move seamlessly from an accusation about one thing to an accusation about something else. It's an unnecessary and unhelpful conflation of issues.

  20. I've got a bit of sympathy with that view, too. The ball tampering was bad, and you'd expect maybe a few games ban for each of those implicated - so maybe a few months (depending on when the Aussies next play a series). The lying about it afterwards and the premedited nature of it (taking sandpaper onto the field to do it...etc.) makes it worse than a thumbnail scrath on an unresponsive old ball (though that's still bad). So though the ICC class ball tampering as a level 2 offence and the sort of theing that would get a short ban, in this instance the people involved made it worse, a

  22. The Spectator (whose podcasts are surprisingly competent and even-handed) have a half hour interview between Andrew Neil and David Davis available to download. Having listened to it, we're properly buggered. I think the man's dimwitted guffaws are probably scratched into my brain, they were so frequent when the alternative was to admit he didn't know the answer to the question.

  26. Originally welcomed a big reaction and punishment, it was premeditated fraud on the opposition, the public, and the game. HOWEVER......... the players have expressed more regret - probably genuine - contrition and guilt than I’ve heard any Politician, Executive, Tax evader, Reporter, or other public figure express in thirty years. All those people could learn something about actually regrettin* what you’ve done. Additionally they shoukd now be left alone and, when the ban is up be welcomed back into the Sport....they haven’t killed anybody and seem genuinely saddened.

  28. How politically divided and obvious everyone is. Can't do anything online now without seeing "far left", "far right". I guarantee that without the anonymity of the internet, no one would know, or give a **** about anyone else politically beliefs. It's so tedious and boring. Facebook, twitter.. covered in it.

  30. Watched One flew over the Cuckoo's nest for the thousandth time and still loved every minute . It has to be, for me, in the top ten films of all time. I really wish old Randall would of choked the life out of that witch, Nurse Ratchet, what a dreadful piece of work she was. Some great actors in their early days, Danny Devito, Christopher Lloyd and that good looking guy from Ghost, who yelled, " get off my train " . "Play the game, play the game, play the game". Love that part, Christopher Lloyd is a hoot. The film was actually set in a real mental institution.

  31. I think the positive is that every player in the world will now think twice before doing any sort of tampering, which can only be a good thing. Feel a little sorry for Smith & Bancroft, they've been idiots and they know they've messed up big time. Bancroft had the decency to say he deserves the punishment. But they made their beds, now they can lie in them...

  33. Yep, I suspect it will wipe out ball-tampering from the arsenal of Aussies tricks, whereas the ICC punishments for it are perhaps not a huge deterrent. It's pretty astonishing that Smith saw Warner & Bancroft were up to something, and rather than put his foot down just turned a blind eye. Didn't have the balls to stand up to Warner? Australia will be much weaker without him in the batting line up, but I don't think they'll miss his captaincy. They may even have a happier dressing room as a result of Warner's ban and become a better team for it...

  34. Nah, he's got another 5 years in him at least. Doubt we'll ever see him in an Australian shirt again though, but there's a pretty strong suggestion that he wasn't even liked by his own team mates so conceivably that could have been happening sooner rather than later anyway. Once this has blown over he'll absolutely clean up on the T20 circuit.

  37. It's amazing he's only 31, really. He's done nothing for 4-5 years. Wasted what could have been the best years of his career. I'll never remember him for the goals. I'll remember him for being too out of shape to play then going out on the piss hours after we were relegated. I wouldn't want any kind of official send off for him, especially during the last home game. That day should be about the lads who've been working their arse off throughout the course of the season, not some bloke who's sat in the stands.

There wasn’t any near but then ‘pop!’, Halesowen popped up, the closest store to me. Jumped in my car and raced down there. I think the guy who had traded it in was still the shop. All chores have been cancelled today, let’s get stuck in to this

  43. If that was the case with both players and I am not saying you are wrong by the way, just offering an alternative view. why, didn't another club come in and train them back to their so called former glory? I think they were all trying everything to get something from them.....is more likely the case for me.
