Great show at Levi's stadium. Mumford and Sons were fantastic as usual. U2 - great entrance, sound was great (have heard a few folks online complaining - but I thought it was super). With or without you was probably their poorest song of the night. Bono seemed to slip on a lyric and it just didn't sound good at all.

Is Larry Mullan Jr just grumpy looking or is he busy counting to 4 all the time?

Was looking at Chris Cornell's twitter. Lots of photos from his shows over last week. Looked in great shape. Apparently played a gig last night. RIP.



You'd think someone like that has it all, but you never know what's going on in their life or in their head.

His wife has stated that she spoke to him twice after the show and he didn't seem in anyway suicidal. I'm expecting this is going to be in Carradine/Hutchence territory. Sad, stupid news either way. 2 teenage kids and an 11 year old.

Making John O'Shea look like Paulo Maldini here

Opened with A rainy night in Soho in Vancouver this week, last night Eddie Vedder sang with them in Seattle - hoping for a great night in Levis Stadium on Wednesday! Mumford and Sons set list and the U2 set lists so far look awesome.

No Surrender!

Sorry, but from the way Puck described it, it was entirely possible that the lady had some sort of invisible disability. Some people are able to walk or even run for a certain distance without a cane, but after that they're in agony. Some wheelchair users are even able to step out of the thing once in a while.  Every case is different.

Judge not lest ye be judged.

Alright Alright - I'll give you that it raised my eyebrows and I wondered if there was a manipulation at play - but I wasn't being particularly judgemental, it's not like I was outraged!

It is entirely possible that she had an issue that caused her no pain at all as she disembarked a 3 hour flight and hoofed it through the terminal. It's maybe equally as possible that she didn't.

Malingering is a real thing - hence the thread.

TM had a pretty incredible stable already - but this has to be a crowning jewel for them. Top 3 players in the world (DJ, Rory, Day) and 5 of the top 10 (add Rose and Sergio). Titleist next with 2 in the top 10 and Callaway, Cobra, Srixon with one each.

Had Sturridge had a full half you might have won the game. Apart from him it was very pedestrian stuff. Pure shite infact.

A friends wife has a clicking and snoring situation going on, her husband now wears ear plugs; but while he is sleeping better, he doesn't like the fact that he can't hear the children in the middle of the night if she doesn't wake.

Should it be the snorer's problem or the snoree......!?

How do you know your friends wide snores ya dirty dog
Insourcing  ;D

I just encountered one I had never seen before. Larger woman, appeared to be early 30s. She got the preferred boarding on my flight this afternoon as she had a walking stick. Fair enough, no problem. I was behind her and we got to the front of the plane and she took her seat and folded her cane up and into her bag. Grand. Flight deplanes and I walked about a quarter of a mile behind her out to the ride share area and she had no limp, no stick, and no sign of slowing down at all.

Snoring is often caused by sleep apnea. When my GF moved in she told me I had a snoring problem that was waking her up during the night, so I immediately went to the doc to sort it out. He gave me a device to test if I was breathing properly at night. Turned out I would stop breathing about 30 times per hour. He then prescribed a CPAP machine, so now I have a mask I can put on that forces air into my windpipe. It's reduced the number of events per hour from 30 to less than 1. I don't wear it every night, lying on my side is usually enough to fix the problem, but I still wear it occasionally. It gives a great quality sleep.

Interesting Eamonn. There's a positive correlation between weight and severity of sleep apnea/frequency of occasions. I know that when I've a few lbs to shift I will have episodes where I will stop breathing in my sleep and wake up gasping for breath. You're a vegetarian cyclist - so I'm surprised you've needed the CPAP!

Her nose has a clicking noise sometimes, and when that's not happening, it's can be basic snoring.  T'is mighty craic
Do you watch these friends sleeping often?   :o

I think that's one way to have someone keeping an eye on the kids.

What's a clicking and snoring situation?

The bigger question is how did the wankerish OP not win free tickets to the reception?
