General discussion / Hypnotism
« on: September 01, 2018, 07:21:18 PM »
Anyone ever used Hypnosis in a serious way - Quit smoking or the like? (Not running round thinking you're a chicken) Would possibly be interested in applying it in a sporting sense and would love to hear any experiences.

US boy, 9, killed himself after homophobic bullying, mum says - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-45323933

That's just so horribly tragic but leaves a few questions in my mind.

General discussion / UK v Russia
« on: March 17, 2018, 01:20:21 PM »
What do people think of this? The UK seemed to have reached conclusions long before anything has been proven. Woe betide anybody who doesn't weigh in behind the jingoistic Government line. The rapidity & rashness  of the response is worrying imo. Boris and the Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson 2 utter clowns as per normal.

General discussion / Bet 365 refuse to pay out on 1m gamble

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/07/08/exclusive-teenager-takes-bet365-court-1m-won-horse-races/

Happened during the Summer but only coming to court this week. The crux of the matter being 365 says she was a front for a syndicate and in breach of 'no 3rd party' rules. It'll be interesting to see how this pans out, in a previous similar (Barney Curley)case the bookie had to pay out.

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
« on: August 19, 2017, 04:20:21 PM »
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
« on: June 30, 2017, 06:42:57 PM »
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.

First up NZ Provincial Barabarians this morning.

It divides opinion but I love the Lions Tours.
