  1. One of the complaints about e-scooters, is they are fast, and quiet, therefore undetectable to blind people.

    But so are bikes, e-bikes, and electric motorbikes & cars, but the politicians are saying they are the future. 

    I nearly got hit by an e-taxi last weekend because I looked the wrong way, at the wrong time. She just drove on. If I had been hit, The Sun & Mail would've be requiring a ban on 60 year old walking alone.

    If anybody enjoys watching Horrible Histories "with their kids", and has watched Ghosts will be pleased to know the 3rd series is coming up soon.

    Strange coincidence, the house where it is filmed was also inherited by a relative that didn't know he had a connection, the inheritor was University Challenges Bamber Gascoigne.

    At 86 he is still alive.

    New Aussie owner at Swindon Town. Plenty of interaction/communication with fans including installing a Fans Trust member as CEO of the club and members of the Trust and Official Supporters Clubs will have a place on the board. So far, so good.

    New home kit, with a nod to our history, and an Aussie inspired away kit announced 

    Our fan base is very pleased to have our club back! 😀 

    Despite hating anything Red out of principle, I quite like the home kit.

    I've never been to the Brighton stadium, so I plan to go to that game as well as the St Mary's one.

    A couple of years ago when Brighton were in the Championship I took my daughter to the Amex to see them play Leicester, Brighton won 3-0, City still went up and Won the Premier League soon after.

    Adam Pearson pipes up with Super League clubs' very own 'selfish and parochial' view https://www.hulldailymail.co.uk/sport/rugby-league/adam-pearson-hull-fc-super-5686936

    Selfish & Parochial, Superleague? Nah, wouldn't stand up in court, too drunk. Apart from relocating Catalans to Liverpool, it's not an M62 sport, at all.

    NRL Players probably do more miles per season than SL Clubs do

    There's a bloke on Etsy selling various original Trolleybus/bus name signs (the ones on the roll you had to wind round.) Alot are national but There's one that features my upper school, first house and current residence. Tempted but at 25 quid???. I'd link but one I don't know how to and two if I'd be allowed. 😒😒

    They had Trolley buses when you went to school, I thought you walked to the pit?

    I know what you mean but a few years ago we were looking at no professional club in the NE at all. What Newcastle Thunder have done is remarkable. If some dodgy pitch markings are the offset of that then I will take it.

    With regards the WC. It is completely up to the RLWC organisers to knock Newcastle into shape. It should be a pre-requisite of Newcastle's tender that the pitch is marked clearly to international standards.

    Apart from when Gateshead had to merge with Hull, or was it the other way round 😁
