USA Midterms
at 08:53 1 Nov 2018

Watching breakfast news and they're highlighting where Trump has a lot of support, Evangelical Christians, that explains a lot.
Some of the people they interviewed seemed to be barking. The Priest said his strong faith in Jesus was reflected in his conservative views, do what now? Jesus was the biggest Liberal the planet has ever seen. If you accept he existed and was the son of God, not the biggest con artist in history. Jesus certainly wouldn't have accepted having that wall built, he'd be there knocking it down.
The USA is strongly religious still yet the religious views are warped from what I've understood them to be. Jesus never advocated the kind of behaviour Trump supporters indulge in, he wouldn't behave like the Trump haters either.

The USA is one crazy mixed up place. The good Samaritan uses bullets and bombs to help, they don't turn the other cheek, money lending is good and the 5000 (Latin American immigrants) will not cross the border, will go hungry and Trump will not turn the other cheek either.

Getting your just desserts
at 08:41 1 Nov 2018

Neil Lennon, last night he was goading Hearts fans after a goal was disallowed then he copped a coin square in the face.
He reckons it was just banter but is it ok for any manager to goad the oppo fans? It's frowned on when players do it these days so what example is a manager setting?

He probably got the poor innocent coin thrower into trouble!!

Scottish Wildcats
at 10:40 25 Oct 2018

I was watching countryfile this morning and the story about wildcats is truly shocking. They are felling thousands of acres of wildcat habitat to make way for wind farms. So to save our planet we are destroying the environment, it just doesn't make sense.

https://www.nationalgeographic.com/animals/2018/09/scottish-wildcat-highlands-ti

The wildcats are the MOST endangered cats in the world, 50 times rarer than tigers, rarer than Pandas, Polar bears are endangered and there's 20,000 of them but there are less than 300 wildcats left.

Watched this just now and the japanese are at it again, some great science and some weird science too..
Hyabusa 2 is a satellite that is exploring an asteroid looking for signs of life and evidence of where life began. Did it begin on Earth or elsewhere in the universe, that's a mighty big search!
Then there's more down to earth stuff, like dashcams that can share information so when you are overtaking, you can see through the car in fronts camera and be sure nothing is coming the other way. I'm not sure about that, there's enough distractions already without confusing our brains even more.
Then there's fake "real daylight" when an indoor window gives off artificial sunlight in a natural way and glasses with liquid LED crystals that, at the click of a small button, become magnified so you can read small print easily. Tap the button again to turn off.

It's a nightmare for new car owners, will your car be there when you come back? Will it be in one piece?
I have to ask though, is there a scandal brewing here. We've already seen the emissions scandal and now cars are so easy to steal or to rob from. Dealers are doing a lot more repairing and replacing and insurance claims are rising so people are paying excess fees and their premiums are rising.
Is the car industry profiting from this security flaw?

More cuts?
at 21:23 17 Oct 2018

Can schools in Swansea stand any more cuts? My sons school has no new buildings, no extra rooms but the number of children has nearly f=doubled in 6 years. If there are cuts his education will definitely suffer, how can the WAG justify it?

42 minutes in play
at 11:19 2 Oct 2018

I was listening to talksport in the car this morning and that 42 minutes was a new Premier league record low for the ball being in play, yes it was Cardiff v Burnley.
Apparently Morrisons throw ins used up 8 minutes by themselves. Put that with time wasting ar free kicks, when the keeper has the ball etc and over half the game was wasted time.
I can't remember his name but an ex referee reckons we need an independent time keeper so that all wasted time is added on. He also asked, when was the last time a keeper was punished for holding the ball more than 6 seconds when they're all at it?
He's got a point surely. He also said nfans were being shortchanged and we are, aren't we? We pay to watch a full match not anywhere from 42-90 minutes.

https://talksport.com/football/315919/average-ball-play-time-each-premier-league

So do the rules need changing, do referees need to have time keeping taken off them AND be told to enforce the rules more often, more consistently?

I say yes.

Is this an example of gross stupidity? Should we be protecting our heritage whatever the cost? Can we afford the upkeep of old, unsafe buildings that aren't fit for purpose?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-north-east-wales-40861904

The WAG gave it listed status after the council put it down for demolition, the high court overruled them but the WAG intervened again, they reckon this old school has special architectural interest, I'm not sure what that is because it looks like any one of many red brick schools still being used.....which should be ireelevant anyway, can we afford to keep paying for expensive, out of date heritage vanity projects when we can't fund the NHS, Police and (ironically) schools properly?

Telephone preference service
at 10:12 20 Sep 2018

What is the point in this when they can be gotten around so easily. To make a complaint the phone call you recieve must be live, as in you spoke to somebody, so a recorded message can't be complained about.
Then it must be a direct marketing call so when you get a spam call from someone asking you to do a survey, you can't complain.
These are just as much nuisance calls as any other.

She has a book out about Gary Speed, I won't be reading it but it tells us enough to read about his letter home aged 16/17. Speed obviously had a long history of mentall illness. If anyone has thoughts of not wanting to carry on, or go to sleep and not wake up then talk to someone you trust for gawds sake. I've suffered depression and get the odd relapse, don't keep it to yourself, it will only get worse.
