    Vrooooom, vrooooooooom

    You know, I almost did include lawnmower racing in my last post. Beats F1 hands down. EDIT - fantastic video. "Once deep into the night, visibility is... impossible.".

    Literally every single other form of motor racing, from Nascar to Moto GP; from touring cars to stock car racing, is more interesting than formula one. It is without exception the dullest way people can race one another in motor vehicles.

    Numberphile

    I've noticed that in French speakers' English before. As they all do (did) it, I put it down to an error in their text books. After all, they just need to say l'or instead of l'eau and it does the job. Younger French people no longer seem to to mispronounce it.

    Qanon: high level intel, AI or LARP?!

    Everyone would read a big tax cut as a cynical ploy. Americans are no more or less daft than we are and would easily see right through that. Not a smart move if true.

    Kleenex drops 'Mansize' tissues

    Mamucium is generally thought to represent a Latinisation of an original Brittonic name, either from mamm-("breast", in reference to a "breast-like hill") or from mamma ("mother", in reference to a local river goddess). Both meanings are preserved in languages derived from Common Brittonic, mam meaning "breast" in Irish and "mother" in Welsh.

    Ironically I read about this in the MANchester Evening News.

    Incredible hubris if so. If the republicans lose the mid terms, they lose everything. If they have more shit to throw but opt not to do so, then I can see them sorely regretting it in 3 weeks time. It strikes me they probably don't have anything else.

    True but how risky can you get, not maximising your chances so close to the election. Imagine what might happen should one big story that favours the Dems come out in the next few days - could be an individual republican senator caught up in financial irregularities, or paedophilia for example. If the republicans really do have ammo and don't use it, they may come to regret it badly.

    Current polls suggest the democrats will make significant gains.

    School discipline

    I think the kids are about the same now as my generation in the seventies and eighties. One big difference is the modern practice of "inclusivity" whereby the proper mentalists are retained in mainstream schools to salve the conscience of those virtue signalling policy makers who send their own kids to private or the more well healed type of state schools. Teachers nowadays, on the other hand, are much better behaved than they used to be.
