Once Upon a Time in Iraq
at 20:49 5 Aug 2020

Anyone watched this on the i-player?

Pretty engrossing, but depressing, documentary series on the aftermath of the Iraq War, talking to civilians, soldiers and reporters. We all know it, but just confirms what an almighty clusterf@ck the whole situation was.

Review of it here...

Obviously you've all seen this nonsense so I don't need to explain it.

Is it just me that finds myself getting unnecessarily annoyed/disappointed when I see what I had assumed to be intelligent people posting this stuff?

Corona Virus fitness regimes
at 14:10 20 Jul 2020

With the lack of any organised sports, and sports centres etc still closed down, how are the fine people of TWTD keeping themselves in shape?

I'm starting to push myself a bit more on the bike now, done just under 60km in the last 4 days on 3 rides. Its on a hybrid bike rather than a road bike, so takes a bit more effort to clock up the distance! I'm by no means a fitness freak, played a bit of 6 a side footy and walked to work, but badly needed to stop myself going full slob.

On this note, has anyone heard anything about when sports centres might open for football, badminton etc?

Is modern top level football a bit boring?
at 18:34 19 Jul 2020

I don't watch much Premier league football outside of MOTD (ie highlights only), but on the rare occasions I do, such as the cup semi on now, I just find it a bit dull. It is all a bit too cagey and teams are too good at defending, so not much goal mouth action at all.

You can see that the technical ability on display is very good, but not nearly enough of it results in exciting football.

Conservative Party Happy Fathers Day message on twitter
at 15:59 21 Jun 2020

This is a nice enough message from them, smiling picture of dad and child, lovely stuff.

Then read the comments to see the mindset of conservative voters. Pretty safe to say we still have a racism problem in this country I reckon.



Actually quite a remarkable read.

Apologies for spamming a few twitter links, but some of the stuff going on at the moment is pretty appalling.

Group 'defending' Felixstowe war memorial today
at 22:17 20 Jun 2020

Couple of questions.

1) Can anyone explain that salute?

2) has there been any actual attacks on war memorials? I'm aware of attacks on Churchill and slaver/racist statues but not war memorials. Feels to me like there is some kind of move to paint BLM as disrespectful to our war dead.

Some weapons grade irony right there. Appreciate that this isn't exactly a new observation.
