    Yeah I find it a tad offensive. My wife is down the corridor in bed. Metastatic cancer. Maybe one month or so left. She is a scientist (geneticist) with over 100 peer reviewed papers. The amount of research being done is astounding. To think some people believe in some grand conspiracy actually fills me, well, with a bit of rage.

    Dam it. Well into my cups when I read that the other day. Bits and boobs. Who doesn't like bits and boobs.

    The one thing I do remember. He never used the bench. Granted there might not have been much there but you bought them. Make a change and play them. I was a wee bit frustrated with that.

    U.S. Politics

    So I live in Charlottesville. The bookstore I work at is on the mall one block from the site of the rally. I didn't see any broken windows, Molotov cocktails, looting. I haven't seen any footage of journalists being punched. People with cameras where certainly in the middle of the whole thing. But targeted? These things as far as I am aware did not occur in Charlottesville. Lots of pepper spray, people punching, kicking generally trying to beat the crap out of each other. No weapons discharged. Just thought I would add.

    Yes that picture was from last month. Not picking on anyone but I want to defend Charlottesville. I sort of take exception to the idea that "they're a regular thing". That sort of implies to me that it is a long standing and on going issue. I have lived here in Charlottesville for around eight years and this is certainly not a regular thing. The issue is the potential removal a statue of General Lee (confederate general). This removal of monuments and the confederate flag is an on going thing now in the south. The capital of SC removed the confederate flag from their capital building not so long ago. So these nazi words removed have chosen c-ville as protest place. So now we have had the nauseating pleasure of nazis spouting hateful shit in my city three times in the last three months. The majority of these nazis came from organizations based out of state. It was a wild day. The police were always going to struggle to control things. I live a couple of blocks from the downtown mall. Also work at one of the bookstores there. Walked through the intersection where the car drove maybe a bare 10 minutes earlier. Don't know what to say. It was a horrible day. Things were calmer today.

    All-Purpose Religion Thread

    So my wife was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer a while ago. It has since metastasizes to pretty much everywhere. We both think religion is a load of old bollocks. She has gone to many retreats focusing on meditation and mindfulness at the Buddhist place up the road. It has helped her tremendously with the upcoming conclusion. I have adopted a more liquid answer. Maybe I should go as well. Who knows. If it works for you.

    So I just looked that up. There appears to be a whack of fan edits. Any ideas about which is the best one.

    Pre-Match Thread

    So the match day thread here will be my only sort of live game day. I work and don't get other coverage. Going else where I will see the result. If folk commenting on the game could put the time on the game clock as you post, it would make reading this a little bit more live for us playing catch up. It doesn't even take everyone. Just a time stamp every now and again makes it all feel a little bit more live. Cheers.

    Game of Thrones (Spoilers)

    Was that THE season ending show. Can't remember other seasons closers but that was pretty major. So much.
