Suggested improvement to World Cup rules I understand offside, honest, Wed 23rd Jun, 5:00pm
In the 1994 carribean cup Barbados were playing Grenada. Barbados had to win by 2 goals to go through otherwise Grenada would go through. Quirky rules (matches must have an outright winner; sudden death goals counted double) meant that in the final mintues Barbados, realising that they wouldn't score to bring the result to 3-1 instead deliberately scored an own goal to force extra time and sudden death. Grenada, realising what was happening then tried to score an own goal to get the margin back to a one goal win for Barbados. So for the last five minutes of the match, each team was defending their opposition's goal, trying to prevent own goals being scored. Barbados suceeded in forcing extra time and won 4-2 during sudden death. That's even more amusing than watching people in the bar watch England play.

Sliding riggers Mark, Thu 1st Jan, 11:48pm
For some reason Youtube recommended this video to me (I can only assume from searching for the W1 Lents 2007 video a while ago).

Out of interest is anyone able to explain why this boat has sliding riggers - does it give an advantage, and if so, why? (16 comments...)

Still in private beta unfortunately, but you can still sign up for an account.

The browser plug-in recognises (but doesn't yet identify) faces on any webpage you visit, allowing you to tag them with their name. That information then becomes part of the public database which you can search for people by name, and find out who's been photographed with whom...

Monopoly - Here and Now Mike, Fri 11th May, 11:52am
Everyone loves to skew a web-based popularity contest. Monopoly is currently running a poll to determine which cities should occupy which spaces on their new board; first place takes the Mayfair spot, and so on downwards. Cambridge is currently Bond Street - it should clearly be higher. (4 comments...)

CUBC to enter the eights head Simon, Wed 21st Mar, 9:24pm
One rowing headline away from the Cam this week is CUBC's decision to enter the eights head which this year is the weekend before the Boat Race.
An interesting approach to tapering, but maybe JPD can comment on whether in previous years (CUBC have held their penultimate week camp in Nottingham for the past 15 years) the crews have spent the weekend before doing a 5k on the Trent.
My guess is that this may have been linked to the cutting of funding to triallists who refused to join the GB squad for winter training in Reading. Maybe this is an attempt to point out to GB Rowing that they're just as good as Leander.
Another thought is that last year's wash up suggested they couldn't cope with either the Tideway itself or the pressure of a busy race day. (3 comments...)
