Science news - Stonehenge acoustics
at 17:42 17 Sep 2020

Following on from the Venusian news, I learnt today that a scientist has made a scale model of Stonehenge when it was complete (before half the stones went or fell down) and has found that it improves acoustics in the middle by adding bass and reverb.

It turns out that the best scale for making a model was 1:12. Apparently it was only when he was halfway through making the model that the Spinal Tap reference struck him.

Guardian article on Eze to WHam
at 08:36 29 Jul 2020

https://www.theguardian.com/football/2020/jul/28/west-ham-chase-for-qpr-20m-rate

Nothing we didn't know already really, but pleasing to see £20m price tag in a reputable source. Also note reference to Manning to W Ham (which I think would be good business for all concerned if the price is right)

Personally I'd like Eze to go to West Brom if they can find the £20m and assuming we've got to sell now. I reckon he'd get the game time, the fans are less entitled so would give him time to settle, there'd be less media pressure, and he'd fit their style. Also Bilic is clearly a fan and seems a good bloke.

Anyway I've always quite liked Albion and I think the Hammers are all tossers

Has The Curse been lifted?
at 20:30 28 Oct 2018

Leaving aside the fact that we won on Sky, unless I'm missing something the last time we conceded in the 40th-50th minutes was in August v Bristol (twice).

Law of averages says it won't be the last time, but dare we hope that switching off when 5 minutes away from the interval is one of the things that McClaren has spotted and put a stop to?

RIP Fenella Fielding
at 23:35 11 Sep 2018

Slightly surprised that no-one seems to have started this thread already, but I thought her passing should be marked. A wonderful voice and fine actress who overcame a tough upbringing to live a long and fine life.

"Do you mind if I smoke?" Be my guest Fenella, you always smouldered better than anyone else.

Disappointed not to see Karl's lot in this.

Still. Come on Ellan Vannin!

Help needed from all you sophisticated Londoners.

Is wearing a bloody flat cap back to front (like a pillock in a baseball hat, but in tweed) now A Thing? If so, how long has it been going on, and have a righteous populace risen up against it yet?
