  1. Far from an asteroid, but this rare event was captured last weekend on a friends meteorcam on Nuneaton and subsequently featured on BBC News. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-56241511
  2. The Arecibo collapse has left us more vulnerable though.
  3. "Close" here is a relative term. The asteroid will remain a healthy 0.11 astronomical units (the average distance between the Earth and the sun, or about 93 million miles or 150 million km). That's nearly 44 times the distance between Earth and the moon. However, as this says, in 2029 it will come within 19,800 miles from the earth - but scientists cannot completely eliminate the albeit negligible chance that it could collide with the planet in 2068.
  4. This is more what I was referring to. Also, although that became a tiresome cliché long ago, if intelligence and finesse was a hallmark of Eddie Jones' England - which it isn't - he perhaps wouldn't feel the need to say it so often.
  5. Your beliefs are merely that...and are indisputably incorrect if you think that "the foundations were built by Ranieri". The rest is simply appeal to (your own) authority and utterly worthless. As I have pointed out before, Andrew Wakefield was a physician and academic. So what?
  6. This is excellent. Really enjoyed that. Thanks for posting. As an aside. You an level many things at Brian Moore, but bias isn't one of them.
  7. Imagine if that had gone in though!! ****ing outstanding cross from Castagne. One of the highlights of the game.
  8. They are notoriously a bunch of gamekillers and cavemen, but I thought that Dyche played some really positive football yesterday, particularly in the first 15 minutes of the second half, when they really went for us. Not as suggested on here, by simply pinging in crosses and lobbing over the top to a single target man in Wood, but they were clearly encouraged to shoot, to run at our defence and they also played some nice through balls from MF in the process. They very much highlighted our frailty and vulnerability at the moment - and you're, right, Burnley can be an awkward proposition. Bright
  9. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-56274183 I'd far sooner be perched atop of a Falcon that this thing which has always reminded me of something out of a 1930s Buck Rodgers/Flash Gordon film or the Eagle comic. Early days still, but I can't comprehend the wisdom of something so tall attempting a lunar touchdown. Even in 0.17g, and taking into account the low centre of gravity of the LEM, there was concern about it landing at an oblique angle with one pad in a crater - or worse still toppling over altogether.
  10. It was a joke. Actually, Youri had one of his better games last night, Our problem was when we played him as an out and out no.10 against Slavia Prague last week - as someone sagely commented on here, the issue being, he had no Youri Tielemans behind him. Absolutely correct, Youri should not be deployed in an advanced role - we know that - you're telling us nothing new, but we were confronted with extraordinary bad luck of Madders, Praet and Perez all out. I feel for Perez, I really do. Lurking somewhere in there is a good footballer, but overall, he's been woefully
  11. Sat in front of an open fire with a nice red, the prospect of a cold dank weekday evening in the stands at Turd Moor doesn't even bear contemplation.
