  1. Nothing wrong with a win by boundary count. Sport is about fine margins and entertainment and in the highly unlikely event that two teams score the same runs over 50 overs and a super over then why not give credit to the team playing the more entertaining cricket. Do not underestimate how insanely rare it is to end like that - I doubt we will ever see anything like that again.
  2. If the conditions are good look up the route via the CMD arête - takes you off the tourist trail and provides amazing views of the north face, plus some pretty cool scrambling over the narrow ridge connecting you to the final summit slope. Very highly recommended and as long as you are reasonably confident hiker gives you a fantastic full day out (coming back via the usual trail).
  3. Where is the best place for Sunday lunch nowadays? In the city or the surrounding villages.
  4. I'm leaning towards Warrington Frampton but could be swayed. Which undercard looks better?
  5. Would have loved to have been there at the beginning... late 80s early 90s - what a movement to have been involved in right at the outset. But I wasn't even a teenager so my time came in the early 2000's with drum n bass. Slammin' Vinyl nights in Milton Keynes, Valve Sound System, Formation nights at Leicester Uni with DJ SS, my local Bassheads in Reading and then discovering London, Fabric, The End, etc. What a bloody time to be alive.
  6. On my way to work this morning a group of about 20 climate change protestors were blocking Victoria Street which is the very busy, main road connecting Westminster and Victoria in central London. Holding a large banner they simply walked out across the road at traffic lights and then refused to move when the lights turned green. In the face of what increasingly looks like a grave and accelerating threat to our planet (and one where there still seems to be a terminal lack of urgency amongst the general public) should we applaud the actions of these protestors and encourage more disruptive protesting or is this an example of a misdirected and ultimately ineffective attempt to instigate change?
  7. Am I giving them too much credit by suggesting that this may have been intentionally shit so as to distract from the real stuff they are doing which we are all completely unaware of? They did the consecutive passport numbers in the Salisbury case as well. It genuinely feels like they are just taking the piss.
  8. Still - fair play to Asda for giving a pregnant woman champagne to say sorry. Jokers
  9. I injured me knee when marathon training last year which meant I was unable to do my 2 final longest training runs, and only ran a handful of times over the final 5-6 weeks before the marathon. I focussed instead on cycling to maintain stamina / endurance - the action of cycling also has a natural healing effect on the knee and surrounding area. I also did lots of yoga. On the day I ran pain free which was a massive, welcome surprise as I had previously been unable to run for much longer than 10 minutes before being in pain. It was a deeply unpleasant experience most of the time as 26 miles is a really long way but still, without pain I knew I could finish. Obviously all injuries are different but I think cycling and yoga are nearly always a good bet as part of any runner's broader training. Energy gels are a great tip as well, particularly as you may not have done all the long runs as part of your training. Those and race day adrenalin will no doubt get you over the line. Good luck.
  10. Something has gone terribly wrong with the university system compared to when I was at uni if that is an acceptable ratio nowadays.
  11. Recently started to listening to The Teacher's Pet which is a bit like an Australian version of Serial season 1. Only listened to the first 3 but would recommend.
  12. I can't quite get past the "I moved in with her and her ex-partner" bit. Astounding. Good luck to you, judging by your posts you have a lot to offer so be patient and it will happen.
