    The Foodie thread

    Home-made bread, toasted, some diced cheddar cheese, then an over-easy egg on top, with the yolk seeping down melting the cheese and onto the toast. Cup of coffee, cup of tea. Perfect way to kick off a lazy Sunday morning watching the unmentionable. As much as I enjoyed being off work, there's something to be said for old routines: swearing away at work all week, then doing sweet fuck all on the week-end.

    Fantastic save by Foster to keep it level at Watford.

    Least Favourite Food Regions?

    Never been there, but I imagine a straight-up old-fashioned Inuit diet would take some adjustment. Seal blubber, etc. Went through the "strange foods" alley in Beijing a few years ago and the smell alone was enough to knock a dog off a gut wagon.

    I had it at 6.5 when I posted initially, then I edited the post to add the extra 0.5.

    The GF book thread

    Endurance: Shackleton's Incredible Voyage Alfred Lansing Southsea voyage goes awry. I think it might've been the inspiration for Gilligan's Island.

    The GF book thread

    A Peace to End All Peace: The Fall of the Ottoman Empire and the Creation of the Modern Middle East David Fromkin Great title for a good book. A tad esoteric, of course, but it does a good job of setting out the diplomatic machinations that went into the post-WWI settlement. Surprised to learn how central Churchill was to the whole process. I thought all he did between South Africa and WWII was Gallipoli. Definitely not the case.

    Wind River Jeremy Renner in a murder mystery set on a Wyoming native reservation. Just okay, for me, as it didn't do enough with either the mystery or the subtext. 7 of 10

    Sick of being Fat

    Half the man he used to be.

    Boris Johnson

    Will there be "fitness for work" tests, or the equivalent? They're out of school, there are thousands of acres of parsnips out there to pick, they're already pretty low to the ground.... The bonus is they can eat the ones that aren't quite up to standard, thereby taking care of the hunger problem.

    Going to jail for peeing in public? That is ridiculous.

    "Vast of Night" Another vote for. A lot of fun, and the lead actress is very good.

    "Eastern Promises" another good film starring Mortensen. Is he the most under-rated actor around? One great film after another, big and small.

    He thought it'd been stung by a jellyfish.

    The wolf...

    If it's killing old deers and repopulation they're after, they should send in a professional.

    Racism in Southern America..

    Someone--Howie?--mentioned how few black US senators there have been. My math is terrible (I can't even spell it correctly), but here goes: There have been approx. 2000 senators total. Assuming a uniform average length of service over time, there have been approx. 1200 senators since the end of the civil war in 1865. There have been ten (10) black senators in those 150 years (and two of those were appointed). That's not even 1%. In Congress, (using the same math) there have been approx. 6600 members since the end of the civil war. 153 have been black. Roughly 2.3%. The percentage of black people in the US is approx. 12% and was there or thereabouts in 1865 as well.

    That still pic looks like they're getting ready to play human checkers. "King me!"

    Great Sporting Photos

    Evander Kane KOs Matt Cooke. Cooke was a cheap shot artist, who'd injured more than a few players in his career. He generally refused to fight, as he knew he'd get his ass kicked. He dropped the gloves and confirmed the fact with a player who was named after Evander Holyfield. Dumb.

    If I didn't know he was practicing law in Montreal now, I'd swear Dave was one of my room-mates at university. Same looks, same voice, same mannerisms, same sense of humour. He even loved rap. Uncanny. I'm pretty sure he didn't have a "fuck me silly 3", though.
