  1. I don't want to alarm you, but there might be a severed head under your table.
  2. I suppose we could just wait and see. No fun in that though. Can't see any way Red Bull or Mercedes will have him and there's no way for him to win another championship even if they did. Most likely scenario is that he retires, unless he believes Renault's promise to actually be good come the new regs.

    Sport Documentaries

    Where they compare fitness-wise? Top basketball players' fitness levels are way WAY off the charts. The documentary does make it look like they smoked a lot, but none of them did and of course, they didn't inhale the cigar smoke. As for Jordan being a dick, I think you have to understand that no-one in the NBA came close to doing the amount of work on the court that he did, which when you followed the sport at the time was why he was so remarkable. Yes he made spectacular dunks and baskets of all kinds, but perhaps more impressive was how he busted a gut on every single play of every game. He was a great defensive player and excelled in every aspect of the game. As he pointed out himself, he never asked someone to do anything he wasn't doing himself and I think a lot of players recognised over time that they needed that in order to succeed in a crazily talented and competitive league. As the documentary points out, the Bulls were shit when Jordan arrived. Anyway, I'm loving the series so much it almost makes me cry. I was living and working in Chicago during that time and was a huge Bulls fan. The years of getting beaten (up) by the Pistons was so painful to live through. Then Phil Jackson showed up with the triangle offense system, which everyone in the city and Jordan hated, but which was their saviour. I was lucky enough to go to one of their playoff games in their first championship-winning year and it was phenomenal.
  4. You Tube has a million, easy to follow recipe videos. Cooking is pretty easy, just follow a recipe and get stuck in.
  5. F1 2019 on xboxone (don't know about PS4) is on offer for £13.74 for the next 2 days as well as being free to play for a limited time.
  6. Perhaps, perhaps not, but as always, failure to plan is planning to fail.
  7. Summer break moved from Jul/Aug to Mar/Apr and from 2 weeks to 3 weeks. Which I guess is to leave the typical Summer break weeks potentially available for rescheduled races.
  8. I highly doubt that the DAS system is responsible in any significant way for Mercedes performance so far. In fact, as far as I can see, Valtteri didn't pull or push the steering wheel once during the fastest lap of the week.
  9. Oh well. Max is just going to have to win a few then and Red Bull do sound quietly confident. They gave Merc a good run for their money in the second half of last season so hopefully they can get out of the gate a bit quicker this year and make things a little more interesting.
  10. If Valtteri and Lewis share the wins equally and Max gets all the 2nd place finishes, can he still win the championship?
  11. How utterly tedious are Autosport's videos? Their presenters have some of the most boring voices I've ever heard. There's never any shred of enthusiasm on display and the content is laborious in the extreme. I've lost count of the times I've failed to make it all the way through their videos. Fuckin hell.
  12. I'm sure it'll be ready in time, but there sure seems like a lot of work to be done at the Zandvoort circuit over the next 2 months. Quite interesting to see how it's coming along anyway.
  13. Bottas 3.0 means business for real this time.

    This has to be seen as good news, as it signifies the possibility that it may not have been your apparent incompetence resulting in poor coffee, but a problem with the machine itself. Hope lives on.

    Might over-tamping be part of the problem @milko? Or tamping very lightly be part of the solution?

    Paging @milko to the thread.

    Did you work out how to make a cup of coffee yet, @milko?
  18. Blue


    Jeez @milko. Get an Aeropress.

    Smells a burnt.
  20. What's for pudding ma!? Raw egg and sugar. Could I just have another Yorkshire? You'll love it, it's an old Norwegian dessert. It sounds disgusting ma. You'll have it and like it. But ma... Edwina... Shut it!

    Not only do I not want your coffee, but I am compelled to rescind the privileges afforded you as a member of the Fine Coffee Appreciation Society. Good day sir.
