Kieran Tierney
at 07:41 23 Jun 2019

Pat Bonner getting a bit uppity about a £15 million offer from Arsenal for the Celtic left-back:

"If Kieran was playing in England, he'd probably be worth about £50 million",

"Whether Arsenal is a big enough club for Kieran, that's the question".

What does Boris do now?
at 07:21 14 Jun 2019

If he attends the TV debates there's a pretty high risk that Gove dismantles him - the other candidates left are also pretty competent speakers too, so he could end up looking pretty awful. But if he doesn't attend it will show him up for cowardice, and look very poor too.

It's pretty mind-boggling the amount of MPs willing to support him without his competence or ability being tested at all so far.

The Gabrielle Grunewald story is quite something
at 18:13 12 Jun 2019

American middle-distance runner diagnosed with a rare, aggressive form of cancer in 2009 with a low survival rate beyond 5 years. Had surgeries and underwent chemotherapy while continuing to race, and was 2014 national champion in the 1500m. In 2016 had more surgery to remove part of her liver and still continued racing afterwards. She passed away in the last day or so aged 32.

Extraordinary situation

This story is starting to break - significant numbers of EU citizens are being told they are unable to vote in the European elections in the UK because of administrative errors. Some reporting that they have been told at polling stations to 'vote in their own country'.

Board mathematicians, advanced GCSE question
at 10:26 8 May 2019

Should the 11,748 have clubbed together to buy the remaining 252 season tickets, thus triggering the 10% reduction across all season tickets, if those 252 remaining tickets were then loaned out at £10 per game to casual fans?

What's really the point
at 20:57 10 Apr 2019

In playing the likes of Quaner and Bree now - given that we're probably going to lose most of our games anyway, and finish bottom by some distance whatever we do?

There's surely a chance (admittedly slim) that Jackson scores a couple of half decent goals, or Emmanuel puts in a couple of confidence boosting displays, and this gives them boosted confidence for next season.

Genuine question re European elections
at 21:35 9 Apr 2019

Why's the Tory party getting so worked up about this? Can't they just ignore them: not campaign, not vote, not stand candidates? Sure this would send lots of Brexit Party mini-Francoises to Europe, but isn't that their problem, and it's only for a few months, anyway? And what kind of person would stand in these elections - you'd have to be pretty desperate for a whiff of importance!

Fantasy County Championship Cricket
at 15:52 3 Apr 2019

I entered a team in this last year:

It's a brilliant set-up, the rules are excellent and it's free.

I was top of my league until mid-August when I went on a long holiday without internet access and after that I couldn't bear to look at it again knowing I'd blown it.

If anyone likes the look of it you could set up a TWTD mini-league, limited to 16 teams last year tho.

the indicative votes set up was stupid
at 21:51 27 Mar 2019

It should have just been a ranking of preferences. Using the methods they designed if you assumed each MP has two tolerable options, there would be 3 times as many no votes as yes votes across the options. This makes it very unlikely anything would pass.

so they've spent all day deciding whether
at 22:00 25 Mar 2019

to vote to have more votes on the thing. Can't someone just print off 650 sheets with the options on, get them all to put 1st 2nd 3rd down? Would take a couple of hours.

Just make sure whoever makes the sheets doesn't do an 'other' box.

Anyone use an e-reader for reading academic articles?
at 12:44 7 Mar 2019

I want to store (or ideally sync with e.g. a Mendeley account) pdfs on a e-reader - anyone do this currently?
would be nice if there was an effective means of making notes as well.

Screen width is one of the limiting factors I think - Onyx Boox look like they might have some that would do the job?

Lambo looking at a Judge and Dury midfield. Should have a strong Chambers in case we get called to the Hyam Court.

Apologies if already done. If not already done, any legal TWTDers should be ashamed of themselves.
