General discussion / Belfast Murder Victim lay undiscovered for 3 years

Marie Conlon: Man charged with theft and fraud offences - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-41606401

Strange one this, something not right about it. 3 years, no work colleagues, social services sticking their noses in, no social media interaction for 3 years in this day and age is bound to be another red flag.

A thread that's obviously required

General discussion / La Vuelta 2017

Favourite GT about to kick off.

Looking even more brutal than normal this year, L'Angliru back and some other monstrosities. 

Hard to look past Froome, he looked like a boy that started the Tour on 3/4 power to try and save a bit for this. He likes La Vuelta.

General discussion / Can cramps cause damage?
« on: August 02, 2017, 12:20:58 AM »
On return from holidays I went hard at it on the bike for a week to try and shift the holiday weight. One day I took 3 cramps simultaneously, 1 in my left hammy, 1 on the same leg but at the side of my thigh and another side of the thigh cramp on the other leg. I've never experienced anything like it in my life, I was on the verge of passing out. The hammy hasn't been the same since and is twitching like mad. Could a bad cramp do real damage? Google says no. Can still cycle but doubt I'm helping matters.

General discussion / Tour de France 2017

Kicks off in Germany 2moro

Overall betting with Skybet-

Froome 11/8
Porte 9/4
Quintana 6/1
Contador 14/1
Aru 14/1
Chaves 50/1

Open enough betting for a change. Porte has the form going in and it could be a generous 9/4, possible value in Quintana if he's came out of the Giro ok. Chaves is a big price there , 1/4 odds for top 3.

Ropey enough weather forecast for a few days, some of the big guns normally come a cropper.

General discussion / Seasonal Fruit

Great to see the Nectarines back in season and on sale at a reasonable price, totally worth the Hives they give me. Not fussed on peaches funnily enough.

Should Admins should be able to ban posters for persistent gobshitery? This board is being polluted with nonsense on a consistent basis.

General discussion / 2 former Nuns joined in Civil Union
« on: September 29, 2016, 11:23:07 AM »
From the 'i' Newspaper 29/9/16

Two former nuns, who fell in love while working at a rehabilitation centre treating drug addicts, we're joined in Civil Union in the small town of Pinarello, Italy yesterday. The women, identified in the Italian press by their first names, have renounced being nuns.

General discussion / La Vuelta 2016
« on: August 19, 2016, 10:57:31 AM »
My favourite GT of the year, always the most entertaining. A fair bit of talent at the top of the betting but a few weak looking squads overall.

Contador 2/1
Froome 3/1
Quintana 7/2
Chaves 6/1
Kruijswijk 12/1

Looking forward to seeing how Kruijswijk goes, unlucky in the Giro. I'd expect Contador & Quintana to battle it out for the win as they've the most to prove (& seasons to save),  Froome always seems to want to have a rattle at it, if he stays safe he's an obvious danger.

General discussion / Car Ferry
« on: July 31, 2016, 01:52:21 PM »
Been plenty of times on the Ferry to watch the Super Celts but never took a car, so a Ferry Virgin. 

Looking at prices for Dublin-Holyhead it looks dear. Who is the best company to book with considering the strength of the at present - it is presumably influencing the cost in my searches (in NI)?  I assume it's best to book early like with the airlines?

About to get under way. I much prefer the Giro & Vuelta tbh but it should be good this year.

If I was having a bet I'd go for Quintana at 2/1 for overall ( Froome 6/4).

They can expect crosswind hell today.

They're all on drugs anyway.
