HyperNormalisation

I just watched this on iPlayer, a seriously brilliant documentary which answers a few questions that a lot of people on here have been asking/discussing, Suicide bombers, Assad, Gadaffi, Trump, Blair, Putin it's all here.

It's a long film but nonetheless engrossing.

Everest
at 22:19 15 May 2017

Watched this last night https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Everest_(2015_film) bloody great!

A friend of mine just made it to base camp as part of a trek for Cancer. The pictures she took were incredible and it was a pretty interesting journey with a blizzard and one or two avalanches. Weather went from 70degrees to sub zero within a few hours on the last part of the trail.

Can anyone recommend any good books or documentaries on the subject? I've become fascinated with some of the stories. Would love to do the base camp trek one day but not so sure of that scary airport at Lukla

If you could be so kind...

I don't normally post these things but, hear me out.

A good friend of mine passed away suddenly last week - Kevin Garcia of the band Grandaddy.

He just came back from a European tour and was fine and was back in Modesto living a normal life with his wife and kids, when he suddenly suffered a massive stroke. He never recovered and passed away the next day. He was only 41 and wasn't a big drinker and never touched drugs either.

It has shocked and saddened so many people who either knew him or loved his music. A really gentle chap who always had time for everyone and I'll cherish forever the time we spent together only a few weeks ago.

Why am I posting this? Well there is a go fund me page set up to help his family with medical costs and his funeral expenses plus to help the family in the short term too. It's ticked over 50k so far with a target set of 75k.

If you feel like giving then please do no matter how small you can donate, it all helps.

Thanks

Jeremy Hunt
at 23:07 9 May 2017

A shameless copy and paste from a facebook post but it's a good 'un :)

Jeremy Hunt was doing an annual visit to a NHS hospital. As always he was looking for something to beat the NHS with to show how badly run and loss making things were.

While Hunt was checking the books, he turned to the executive of the hospital and said “I notice you buy a lot of bandages. What do you do with the middle of the roll ?"

"Good question," noted the executive. "We save them up and send them back to the bandage company and every once in a while, they send us a free roll. We recycle whenever possible"
"Oh," replied Hunt,, somewhat disappointed that his unusual question had a practical answer. But on he went, in his obnoxious way. “What about all these coloured casts you dispense. Isn't it rather a waste of money?"

"Ah, yes," replied the executive, realizing that Hunt was trying to trap him. "We ask that any patient wishing a coloured cast donates £1 which is far in excess of the 10p the colouring actually costs."
Hunt asked a dozen or more questions with similar results. he was determined to fluster the know-it-all executive.

"Well, What do you do with all the remains from the circumcision surgeries?"
"Here, too, we do not waste," answered the executive. "What we do is save all the little foreskins and send them to government, and about once a year, at this time, they send us a complete prick."

Awa Lebanese food Swansea
at 19:35 1 May 2017

Went there with the Mrs this afternoon. Very impressed I have to say. Naan and Hummous starter was amazing and the chicken mains we had were as good as anything I have had in Greece or Turkey, but what I enjoyed most was the juices, Orange, Pineapple and mint - lush!

2 starters, 2 mains, 2 drinks and Baclava to finish for £20. Tidy!

Very popular with the local Muslim community. PikeyPaul would love it there!

Anyone else been there?

Team goal or individual effort?
at 23:40 13 Feb 2017

Watching that Olsson goal yesterday reminded me of the Swansea we know and love, triangles, vision and a clever pass into the final third. Alfies goal was magnificent and would make any PL striker proud, so I just wondered what is your favourite type of Swans goal?

A Bodde blaster from the half way or a Barcelona style pass fest/team effort resulting in a goal?
