HRR scarf Simon, Sat 6th Nov, 4:04pm
Yes I know our proper scarf is simple navy blue, but it's good to see HRR acknowledge the colours of the first ever Grand winners.

Some pre-emptive therapy, just in case Sunday doesn't go to plan...
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...
