  1. Florida man hit by celebratory gunfire during Fourth of July fireworks show.

    Somehow that doesn’t surprise me.

  2. @Tichtheid>

    Ha! At least Bertie got us to a play-off (and 6-0 humping by the Dutch). But so did Big Eck and we lost to Italy (after that Fine Upstanding Italian Gentleman, Georgio Chiellini managing to get a free kick for his foul, and then they scored. Not that I’m bitter).

    Every time there’s a wee glimmer of hope with the fitba’ team, they do something like this.

  3. Tried watching that Squidge thing on the Calcutta Cup, but got so distracted by trying to read the stuff that flashed up on the screen (then off again before I could read it) that I couldn’t concentrate on what he was actually saying, which did seem quite interesting.

  4. @MisterIks>

    Erm…. I don’t think that I’ve made my point very well. I wasn’t coming from that perspective. And it’s moot anyways as FD explained the invitation process which the article glossed over.

  5. Oof. From Martina Hyde, and unfortunately I think she’s nailed it:

    Not that you’d theoretically rule out both records being smashed by Jeremy Corbyn, whose Brexit strategy, even at the hour of peril, amounts to looking present but not involved. The Labour leader’s decision to leave a cross-party crisis meeting because Chuka Umunna was there confirmed him as a small and peevish man, who wouldn’t have what it takes if the chips were down.

    Thinking about it earlier in the context of the hung parliament…
    Folk were so unsure of May that they gave ol’ JC a decent election result in context.
    He’s the Worst Thing Ever – but enough folk flirted with the idea that he took a lap of honor.
    This is who we’re told has any kind of mandate?

  7. @Refitman>

    Suspected.
    Who’s suspicious?
    And how do you not get caught red-footed in the first place?
    Shirley it’s quite a straightforward arrangement identifying the person snorting your paws?

    Yeah I’ve just this minute read Marina. She sets of the Beadle klaxon a few times but it’s hard to argue with her overall point.

    A more craven, self-indulgent, vainglorious three minutes it would difficult to imagine than that speech May gave to the nation last night.

    The UK is fucked, I just hope Scotland jumps ship and re-joins the EU asap, maybe when they look north in a few years time English voters will follow, if not and it all works out fine then everyone is happy but I don’t want any part of this, being led by the short term interests of people making a killing from currency speculation, betting against the pound and moving their own businesses to EU countries.

  9. “You” have had enough. “You” are tired of this. “You” want it over and done with. I agree. I am on your side.

    Finally, after months of rumours, confirmation that Hallam Amos has signed for the Legends.

  10. I’m running some migration tools in the background.
    They are crippling on resources – so apologies – I only need to run it once, prolly around 30mins.
    I need to find a more effective use of our servers – I can’t just keeping flinging money at the problem.

  11. @El Rayo>

    When I was a kid I was largely shielded from rebel songs, probably because the Provos were at the height of the mainland campaign so it wasn’t the done thing. Instead the music of choice at our church and school fairs tended to be the more family friendly Fureys, Mary Black, Daniel O’Donnell etc. Plus the Oldham Tinkers might come along and do a turn for free. I only realised recently this wasn’t one of their original tunes and was actually a fairly common Irish one
