If we can put together another decent spell
at 15:53 16 Mar 2019

Later in the game - as we have done previously - then there's still a chance of victory.

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".

Apparently Coventry are facing expulsion from the League

Because they haven't yet told the authorities which ground they're planning to use for home fixtures next season.

And it doesn't make for very pretty reading ...

... unless you take a morsel of pleasure from Norwich missing the automatic places on goal difference.

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.

Venezuela's oil
at 19:45 3 Feb 2019

Interesting conversation I had with someone on the subject.

The crude oil which comes out of the ground is not all the same stuff. What we get from under the North Sea is "light and sweet", low in sulphur and ideal for making petrol. Venezuela, on the other hand, has some of the world's largest reserves of very heavy oil.

This is harder to extract, lower priced (which is why they've been harder hit than other major producers), includes more contaminants and is generally less useful, not containing the volatile fractions which can be turned into fuel. So, far from being a highly sought-after resource (such as some of the Middle Eastern fields or the North Sea), it's not really that attractive. The USA has fairly large quantities of the stuff already.

Hardly the kind of thing you'd go to all the effort of destabilising a country for. This is more about geopolitics and the country's internal affairs than oil.
