  1. Alternatively they have this article going into a bit more detail explaining why it isn't quite as simple as that.
  2. I closed the stream after they cleared that corner in the final minute of injury time. You're all welcome
  3. Happy holidays, we understand there are fewer job vacancies as a result of covid so to help you find one we're going to threaten you with destitution. Peace and love this festive season, The Tories xX
  4. I hope not, I'm always dropping my gay card.
  5. Isn't that to be expected though? Schools are self explanatory I hope, whereas supermarkets are the one place everyone physically has to go to keep their kitchen stocked up, so it gets visited by more people than anywhere else, so of course we get more cases from them, but I'm not sure we can conclude that supermarkets are inherently more dangerous than other place where you can't help being fairly close to people... But yes, if something's essential then the risk is less of a factor in the decision making for restrictions on it than for non-essential practices.
  6. You must be able to see an epidemiological difference between sitting maskless in a closed environment and walking around an airy shopping centre with your mask on?
  7. I think you're using a false definition because that's perfectly valid use. I'm assuming you think pandemic means "global epidemic" which isn't quite accurate, it's an epidemic that's crossed borders. I'm not sure how many countries an illness needs to hit before it gains pandemic status but it doesn't need to be worldwide, so when one is worldwide it's fair to specify that it's global.
  8. 2012? We had them around the turn of the millennium where I grew up, maybe you shouldn't be so quick to cast stones
  9. Underrated game but you're so wrong. Not that the soundtrack's bad (I really liked the future mixes in particular) but if I'm being honest I'd probably struggle to recognise it if I heard it playing randomly.
  10. Nah, it's all about that choir work for me. It really makes you feel like Skyrim.
  11. Honourable mention: And basically every other Nintendo game let's be real.
  12. Sure, but are Pokemon's deeper mechanics similarly emulated? If the similarities end at collecting teams of monsters and battling with them then there's already a bunch of mobile and indie games that already copy that formula, Pokemon basically created a subgenre of turn-based RPG. After all you can copyright specific code and artwork but you can't copyright things like the general idea of collecting creatures, having a team of 6, turn based fights, random encounters etc. or even all of those things together. It's like how we now have a ton of indie games that are basically Dark Souls.
  13. This one's passed me by, how similar we talking? Does it go as deep as IVs, EVs and all that stuff?
  14. Erm. Obviously it's Skyrim you fvcking nerds.
  15. I was going to say it has to be the former because no evil genius would live off McDonalds, but then I remembered that scene in Kingsman: There is no line between reality and parody anymore.
  16. This has been Trump's MO from the very start. He loves letting people say outlandish things on his behalf then making them take the fall for it when there's backlash. It's how he gets his fans to buy into his 'plausible deniability' for spreading fake news and get them to defend his behaviour just because he wasn't the one who actually said the unspeakable thing on camera. Very blatant yet very effective. See also: Scaramucci, Spicer, Sanders, Bannon, Manafort, Stone, Cohen, probably more...
  17. I missed the HT analysis, what did they say about the handball incident?
  18. We've not been very productive but let's be fair: With a decent ref and a bit better luck for Evans and this is a very different game, 2-0 flatters Liverpool.
  19. That's a brilliant challenge by Justin, this ref's a joke.
  20. Literally same challenge happened to Vardy about 20 seconds earlier, ref keeps quiet but Liverpool get a free kick they could very easily score from. Funny that.
  21. As someone who never saw Maradona live and has had to use his highlights to judge him, it's hard to take claims that he was better than Ronaldo or Messi seriously when the 2 clips that get more air time than any other are his 'best goal ever' (a fairly pedestrian jog through a retreating and ineffective English defence) and what was surely history's most famous example of someone getting away with cheating in professional sports until Lance Armstrong came along .
  22. I'm not necessarily 100% behind the new handball rule but it's pretty clear and that's definitely an example of it. Or it would be if it was any team other than Liverpool or Man Utd.
