Trump classified documents case thrown out
at 16:01 15 Jul 2024

The president nominates them, then there is a committee that asks them questions to make sure they are suitable (that is effectively pointless) and then they get a job until they die.

They have a serious amount of power which had not been used before as judges were not as overtly political as they are now.

The idea of having a politically aligned legal system is completely bonkers to me.

The worst I have felt as a football supporter.

I always want us to win but never expect us to do well so I never feel that disappointed even when we come so close.

Imagine posting DogeDesigner unironically.

The guy's entire personality and life is just posting about how great Elon Musk is.

Just had a colonoscopy and gastroscopy.

And me, it's blooming awful. 2 litres of laxatives is absolutely no fun. I was amazed there was anything left in my body by the time I was finished.

I've somehow managed to have two colonoscopies, one the half way and then the fully monty as well.

Don't be an idiot like me, get the sedation.

This Philogene Saga is getting stupid
at 06:28 12 Jul 2024

I've seen a few people expressing similar opinions.

Transfers aren't there to entertain the fans. The fact it's taking a while doesn't matter. If this sort of thing had happend in League One I doubt we'd have even noticed as we wouldn't have had lots of journalists notifying us every 10 minutes.

I posted this elsewhere but by the sounds of it it's not like we've been in a bidding war or anything. We've had a bid accepted, agreed terms with the player and now he's deciding which of the other accepted bids he's interested in. That's just football.

Philogene update...
at 13:16 10 Jul 2024

Neither really.

If we bought him for £15mil, Villa would get 30% of that (£4.5mil) and Hull the other 70%.

If Villa buys him for £15mil, they get a 30% discount, but Hull still gets the 70%. A bit like Villa are paying themselves a little for the transfer.

Philogene - Bad idea?
at 12:47 10 Jul 2024

At the end of the day, there's not much of a circus for Ipswich.

We've put in a bid, it got accepted and we've agreed terms with the player (reportedly).

Unless there's a load of mucking around with the terms because of the other bids, I doubt it matters to us what the other clubs are up to. At some point, the player will make a decision either way.

I'm sure we've had this with other transfers and just not known about it because we didn't have a load of national journalists involved.

All just part of football when you're after a player that other clubs want.

That’ll send a really good message to criminals
at 08:35 9 Jul 2024

It is compounded by the knee-jerk reaction to everything being "longer sentences".

We've got the most prisoners per capita out of most (all?) Western European countries as well.

EDIT:

To expand a bit, my uneducated guess would be that we do nothing to solve the root issues of why these people are in prison (drug addictions, mental health issues etc.), people go to prison and then get released back into the same scenario and shockingly they end up going back to prison within a year.

Obviously not all criminals have these kinds of issues, they might just be bad people, but I imagine quite a few do.

It did exist. Not sure if this link will work - EDIT: It does not, just copy and paste the below in the address bar to view.

What gets weird is when you look at the domain registration.

https://who.is/whois/markmatlock.co.uk

"Nominet was not able to match the registrant's name and/or address against a 3rd party source on 31-May-2024"

This could be nothing, but it's a bit peculiar.

Saw this on Byline Times via Reddit.

There's a load of weird stuff about their (Mark Matlock) website WHOIS.

Once this all came our their Twitter started getting weird and aggressive when people noticed him.

Genuinely laughed at this, just outta nowhere.

On topic though, watching the kit reveal now because I'm sad and have nothing better to do.

I should go and sort my driveway out as it needs a clean but I can't be bothered.

We had a vote on a bad form of PR, yes.

And the campaign against it was bloody awful.
