Didn't even make it to 3 minute past midnight before being sent an advert for Star Wars stuff with the "May the 4th be with you" thing as the leader.  Oh come on...

From 1.40, a certain Huddersfield Giant is mentioned.

I wonder where that reference came from. Was the commentator aware of the Big Daddy connection, or was it something else. Strange.

This may be old news, I can't remember it being mentioned on here, but has WWE ever drawn upon a RL player for a comparison with one of its wrestling superstars..... yes it has.

Blimey.

 

I had forgotten quite how ridiculous that show is.

Weird isn't it. He says the name as if the other commentator is also familiar. Maybe they are fans and watch in the US on some channel.

I was out walking with my 6 year old last weekend. The weather was typically April Showers with sun shining through the light rain. I mentioned that there might well be a rainbow and we started to scan the sky only to be disappointed. At that point, he piped up with "maybe it's still loading ".

Australian researchers say they have built a world-first prototype of a new scanning helium microscope that will "open scientific doors".

Surely no-one can afford that stuff any more? I'm pretty sure I saw Roman Abramovich running out of my local Rymans, sobbing, just a couple of days ago.
