That was one of the most comical things I’ve ever seen on a football pitch. How it wasn’t a penalty is beyond my ken.

Just scrap VAR now.  There's simply no point in saying you have it if you don't use it to spot that.

Fucking ridiculous!!  That would constitute assault on any British street.

It's illegal in Rugby ferchristssake!

As the last living human on subdeck 13583599gh of the mothership, all questions eventually find their way to my inbox. Or people CC me because somehow they thing it's something that I should know. It's not and I was genuinely quite happy not knowing. Those huge dangling emails quoting everything that was ever said. And someone's email begat someone else email, and begat begat begat. I wouldn't mind, but do you know how this Tidy Haired Thought Leader™ answers the many questions that emailed to him? Sometimes I just Google the answer and respond. That, dear minions, is how I know the GDP of Burundi. Do they think I just memorized them? OK, evidently. Other times, when I'm feeling less charitable, I just make up the answer. I'm like Alexa, if you'd somehow managed to persuade her to open a spreadsheet containing the Darkhold function, and she turned a bit evil. She'd still be better than Siri. No Siri, I said Excel, not XXX. Close. Close. Close.

Which reminds me, I've written the first episode of The Emailer in my head.

Sporks are nowhere near as good as proper cutlery (or fingers).

Much like your towel, you should always know where your spork is

For me it was the ladybird swarm in the 70s as a young child. They bite when I swarms.

It was 1976. At my birthday party we had a lady bird collecting competition. They were everywhere.

My singlespeed has been driving me to distraction (and not riding it for months) as there was a loud creak/clunk every pedal stroke under load.

Knowing I'd changed the BB, I've been checking the freewheel, chain, pedals, cranks, chainring (yes that one is getting a bit sharky actually). but still it kept creaking. I finally decided to take the BB out again, and discovered I'd only tightened it finger tight on the drive side :facepalm:

Now the BB has been removed, cleaned, regreased and installed properly, the bike's was almost silent when I took it for a spin round the block!
