RE: Lockdown Check In
Had a few nice days in Cornwall, Looe, over the weekend, came home early as it seems spending time with my husband is actually a shit idea and looks like I'm probably getting divorced pretty soon.
Sounds like I'm joking but I'm not. Let's hope we don't get lockdown again anytime soon.
Been there done that but you can come out of it as great friends if you’re both grown up about it and above all compromise. My ex wife ended up with a great bloke, they have two kids who I adore and she just wrote my other half a sickening ( in a nice way....I think ) lovey dovey birthday greeting today. They’re basically bffs and naturally yours truly bears the brunt of any grief. Turns out I haven’t gotten any better at housework over the years.
Don’t ever fight in front of the kids or have a go at hubby just to ‘one up’....not sure how many kids you have but always remember that one. You might be in for a rough few months or years....depends on you and your situation. Luckily for me my ex was willing to work at things, as was I. No lawyers ( apart from those needed for property division etc ) compromise, putting the boys first etc. My folks and I even went to her sisters wedding this year prior to lockdown. It was a fucken awesome shindig and we were touched we got the invite.
Hopefully you both remember you got married in the first place for a reason. Maybe you drifted apart, differed as the years went by, other parties ( MN5 raises a guilty hand ).....but particular when there’s children involved it’s SO important to put differences aside and focus on the fact that person is the other 50% of what made the kid (s).
Best of luck to ya, you’ll come out the other side stronger
RE: Police Officer reported shot dead
No one should go to work and not expect to make it home safely.
I guess we are lucky at least these are so rare, first instance since 2009 accoutring to the media.
I'm pleasantly surprised by that stat. It feels more regular.
Yeah it is a reassuring stat but then any lose is terrible. I’d imagine other parts of the world it’s a daily occurrence.
Just the 33rd in NZ. Sadly for my family, as a few ferners are aware, one of those was my Grandad.
Shit like this always makes my Mum in particular pretty sad so I best give her a bell. Never nice to see her fathers name on the news.
No words to describe the piece of human filth who committed this latest offence so I won’t even bother trying.
@NTA rarely do either of us ever take our phones into our room, we dont use iPads much either and never for watching stuff in our room (we do have a TV in there though) more so since Miss 11 stood on one of them and has cracked the screen.
TR Jnr is pushing the boundaries on his phone, but I say we dont have ours in our room, so neither do you.
Ex and I got the boy an Iphone for his 12th birthday last friday. Needless to say there's already an absolute shitload of Star Wars and Bond memes getting sent. Just totally over the top. Some of them aren't even that funny.
I suspect he'll get annoyed at the constant bombardment and block my number sooner or later.
RE: Roger Tuivasa-Sheck
Do the ABs need him for the 2019 RWC ?
For the back three, they have : Ben Smith, Israel Dagg, NMS, Jordie Barrett, DMac, Naholo, Ioane, Savea, Havili, Duffie and Tamanivalu, plus maybe Nanai, Alaimalo, Will Jordan and Caleb Clarke if they can step up.
Bit of a long winded rambling post but you made your point eventually I guess
RE: Aussie Rugby
When he posts it loud and proud on social media, it is everyone's business
He broke the Inclusion Policy of AR (2014) that he signed up to, just the same as everyone who signs up to specific behaviour for their job. He got a warning last time - apparently not this time
If everyone just went about their daily lives and ignored his post the world would be a better place. Instead everyone is running around drawing attention to it, magnifying the problem they assert exists. Does anybody think sacking him will stop him posting religious nonsense?
What does the ARU think his fellow religious PIs think about this outcome?
I disagree with this 100%.
He’s in an incredibly privileged position, even by pro sportsman’s standards. He’s been clearly warned to tow the line when he’s done this in the past.
He’s upset a whole bunch of sponsors who help foot the bill for his massive salary.
Fuck him and all he stands for.

RE: Star Wars VII ****contains spoilers****
@mn5 thats kind of why i wondered the other week if this might be a limited run, just telling the one story of what happened to them after order 66. i kinda wonder if were going to get a "rogue one" ended for these guys...currently i cant see them just putting down weapons and hiding from the empire, but maybe thats what theyre going to explain
Oh they’re all history, no doubt about it. I fully expect a Blakes 7 ending with considerably better acting and special effects.
RE: Star Wars VII ****contains spoilers****
@mn5 yeah, moving a bit slow which makes it feel more like theyre going to have a story running over multiple seasons
i hope theyre not oblivious to the fact that with Clone wars they could bounce around different groups of characters, Ahsoka, obi wan and anakin often all had completely different story arcs plus any number of other jedi or even baddies, Maul/savage had their own multiple episode arcs
concentrating on one group with cuts to crosshair feels like they need to get them "right" a lot more often
Yeah I think there’s only so much of a story these misfit clones can have. We definitely need cameos from more established characters to keep it fresh and interesting. Tarkin didn’t annoy me so much this time which is good.
RE: NZ cricket 2021
His average is 39.77 so Watling could very realistically nudge that above 40 over these last three tests. That would be some feat for a Kiwi keeper. Reminds me of the last few tests of Flems' career, also against England I think. Fleming couldn't manage a tenth test century (funny how at the time that seemed like a lot for a NZ batsman, and should have been much more but his conversion rate was abysmal), but he did scrape through with his average back above 40 to finish.
According to who ? Cricinfo has it at 38.11 so he’s unlikely to get above 40.
Doesn’t matter though, a legend no matter what on account of that plus his keeping.
Bailed us out more times than I can remember
Pun intended I hope
