Woodlice - what would you call them? (following on from Binner's thread)
at 22:20 19 May 2019

These things:



"Sowbugs" was the term I learnt as a child. That's "sow" as in female pig, not as in seeds.

It's very sad and hugely disappointing
at 08:56 3 Mar 2019

if, as now seems almost certain, we are to be relegated below the second tier for the first time in 62 seasons.

However, it's a bit silly the people posting that they don't want "Third Division Champions" on our roll of honour, given it's already there - twice (1954 and 1957).

Indeed, a third occasion would again put us ahead of Norwich (who equalised in 2010), in one third the number of seasons (11 v 31). We're also 3 - 3 on second tier wins (from pretty much the same number of seasons) and, of course, 1 - 0 up at the highest level.

Good example of how panics can spread
at 08:34 28 Feb 2019

and why in the internet age, people (not just children) need to be educated on how to assess the veracity and significance of what they're reading/watching.

https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2019/feb/28/viral-momo-challenge-is-a-mal

One thing (an image from a Japanese horror show) is turned into another (a rumoured threat to children), then via a social media post blindly repeated into a third (a panic sufficiently large as to involve warnings by the police). All because nobody bothered to check the background and research whether it really existed.

Such panics did happen prior to the internet (e.g. Spring Heel Jack), but their scope and speed are greatly enhanced nowadays.

We need to teach people (of all ages) to think before hitting "repost".

Supposed impending split in the Labour Party
at 09:03 18 Feb 2019

The increasingly desperate noises from the tribal leadership are possibly an indication it might really happen this time. Tho I'm not holding my breath.

Plus I really hope some Conservatives also defect if a new party is formed. Plus the ERG hiving off to Farage's new Brexit Party.

We do need a shake-up in UK politics.
