Not the military - I think you may actually be channelling Donald Trump.

 

You think you have a fancy new business consultancy technique? I have the best business consultancy, believe me the best, the best.  My techniques, yeah I went to great schools, and all that stuff, but my techniques, boy my techniques, I taught myself.  I know words, the best words.  If I come to you as a consultant, they would say i'm one of the smartest people anywhere in the world, its true!  We will do very, very well, very, very well.

 

I would fix that broken business, so so broken, and make it great again.  So to sum up how i would fix it, make it great, I would do various things, very quickly, make it the best, the best.

You can't slip anything past the NSW Police these days:

 

"Homicide detectives said they believed the senior Rebels bikie was killed because he had been shot a number of times in the head."

A duplicate post, and not a fact but a poser:

Manchester City are through to the semis of a European Club championship.  That means Manchester are the second city in England to have sent two clubs that far with London being the first.

 

England is the second nation in Europe to have had two towns manage this.  What is the other?

I've left the baseball on in the background while I do some studying and I'll never criticise inane commentary on cricket ever again.  The commentator has gone into strange facts about Socrates because one of the player has that name.  I think the commentator is overdoing the whisky, it's utter tripe coming out most of the time.

I'm now utterly convinced he's calling the sides the d-bags against the doggers.  That's one hell of a slurred voice.  Almost Terry Wogan at end of Eurovision slurred...

Wonder if they would like Stuart Barnes to add to the mix. He knows nothing about baseball, but he also knows nothing about rugby and that's never stopped him talking about games.

Guessing, Spain and Italy. I think there were 2 Milan and 2 Madrid teams but not sure about the second cities.

We live in the part of the country that generates AV, AW, AX and AY prefix car registrations.  My mate got a pic of a car with AX15 EVL last year and was quite proud of it.  He's now got the set:  AX15 EVL, AX15 GER, AX15 ITL and AX15 JPN

Many of the people in the office work on a product unofficially called AXI 5. I can see 3 cars out of the window right now that have AX 15 on the plate.

I forgot I posted this here too.

 

The two nations to have had two cities with two European Cup/Champions League semi-finalists are England and Scotland (Glasgow and Dundee - United in 1984 and Dundee FC is the early 60's).
