    I'm going to this place tomorrow:


    It's on the Wirral and is renowned for the best chips on the wrong side of the water. The mate I'm going with offered up four different areas to go for a few hours - all over the region - but knowing Parkgate had this open, I casually said we should wander down and take in the view of the River Dee and beyond as it would be great for us both. We could feel the breeze, chat about all kinds and give our mental health a kick-start.

    I couldn't give a fuck about that. I just want boss chips and feel I still need to make it up to you all for that plate of slop I posted last year.

    Leave it with me.

    This place is mint.  Parking is shit though and there'll be a queue in a Saturday.  Decent Ice Cream just a bit further on for pudding too.

    They presumably lost their arse on Mania and the XFL has pissed away whatever Vince invested in it (again). It's not really a surprise.

    It's as shit as PL clubs though. Owner sat on hundreds of millions, if not more, putting employees on furlough or worse. 

    Correct if I'm wrong but furlough in the US basically means unpaid leave.  I don't think the US government are guaranteeing a percentage of wages are they?

  3. However some words not used in the UK because they are insensitive can be commonplace in the US and are used in the mainstream.  Two specific examples of the are the aforementioned "Spaz" and the "Special" Olympics.  No mainstream outlet would use those phrases here but I have heard both used on US TV in the last month or so.

    Fans shouldn't be near the HoF event. Do you get that in any other industry (hall of fame events, awards nights etc)? It's just industry members/affiliates surely. But Vince sees the commercial value in it now so I doubt will go back to how it was.

    I know my boss paid for a table at the SPOTY when it was in Liverpool and he has no affiliation to any sport or sportsman.

    Read all the Asterix books when I was a kid, absolutely loved them. What a body of work he's left behind.

    If you like Asterix go to Parc Asterix near Paris. I absolutely loved it. Got to meet Asterix, Obelix, Cheif Vitalstatistix and many others as well as visiting the Gaulish village.  There are many excellent rides there too but it was busy and I didn't do any but still had an amazing time!

  6. All working now. Signed up on my phone and downloaded the app to the smart TV. Bit of XMen methinks before I pop into work, make sure everything is ok, get some snacks on the way home and go on furlough for the foreseeable.

    This should keep the bin lids and me entertained for a while.

    Not sure of the best place to post this, so repost elsewhere if appopriate. Sky is letting people pause payments on Sky Sports until live sport returns, but still be able to access the channels:


    Have you seen some of the things ESPN having been putting on in the the States?  Stone Skipping and Golden Tee world championships??

    Not something I learned today, but something I told my nephew and he couldn’t quite comprehend it so here goes.

    Stegosaurus and Triceratops are two of the most commonly depicted dinosaurs. However, they never met. In fact, the gap between them is around 87 million years. That’s 19 million years more than the gap between Triceratops and now.

    If you look at any children’s book, jigsaw or poster, Stegosaurus and Triceratops are often seen happily sharing the same space. Maybe that’s why people generally assume all dinosaurs were alive at the same point, and that they all died 68 million years ago.

    Also there is a current hypothesis that the Triceratops as we all imagine may not actually have existed at all and was instead a juvenile of another species.

  9. And anyway doesn't the whole "has kids that they don't know about" only work on the male side?  I'm no expert in the female body (ask my wife, chortle chortle) but having kid is something that I would have though most women would at least be a little bit aware of?

  10. Salt and Vinegar Discos, only today i bought a multi pack of which the Prawn Cocktail and Cheese and Onion will sit in a cupboard until they go off or I get desperate (more likely the former).  The Salt and Vinegar ones are already in my belly (one didn't even survive the car journey home).

    Just had the pleasure of an evening out at Arcade Club Leeds. Very nice place. Some of the Japanese machines are a little difficult to decipher. There was a Guitar game that took a while to figure out. The place is set over three levels. All sorts of games on level 1. Retro games on Level 2, completed Double Dragon with the Mrs. She had great fun reminiscing by playing Paperboy. 

    Level 3 is Fortnite and Minecraft on one side. The other side is PS4s and VR. Beat Saber is loads of fun.

    The place was pretty busy on all three levels. Staff are polite and helpful. 

    If you get the chance. Definitely check out Arcade Club.

    The original is in bury and a while lot of fun too. Going to take my 7 year old during the school hols as they usually open during the day (website didn't have updated hours last time I checked).  He'd better be good at playing something else whilst I play wrestlefest...
