Waffle

Internet

A comment from the AV Club’s comparison of the book/film versions of Let the Right One In (the films excellent)

Wow, it’s really easy to be a belligerent cuntwaffle online, isn’t it?
No wonder so many do it.

Would the theory be better with that phrasing?

Some random sporting bits

Cricket, Football

Cricket

Hampshire were fucking dire at Basingstoke last week, I stormed1 out before the end. But on the plus side we’ve signed Ajantha Mendis for next season, with Tahir coming back for 2011. If he gets a chance to play most of the season that could be very good.

In the Ashes England should’ve gone for
Strauss
Cook
Trott
Collingwood
Prior
Flntoff
Rashid
Broad
Swann
Anderson
Onions
The 4 all-rounders give you some batting quality, but it looks like a typical Oval pitch and we’ve got to get 20 wickets so the 4 seamers and 2 spinners should cover than. And we really want to avoid a situation where we’re batting towards a declaration, ’cause we tend to be shit at that.

Football

A great start for Arsenal, all this bollocks about finishing below City will look really stupid when we win the title this year.

But I won’t look stupid when I win the fantasy football this year. I’ll look stupid when I don’t.

1 well, ambled

Very nerdy

Science

A bunch of lectures by Richard Feynman. Nice of Billy to put them online, shame it’s streaming, using silverlight. Be much nicer to download some .mp4s
