  1. Well good or bad he had a point. If I remember correctly the Manchester bid was hardly the most impressive ever. (Manchester got the commonwealth games a few years ago didn't it?) Coe a complete knob? Well, for a complete knob, he sure has done a pretty excellent job in the last few.
  2. I saw an interview with Beckham before the Olympic vote where he said "I want the Olympics to come from where I come from, er, in London. Please". It was a dynamic passionate speech and surely what brought the Olympics to London.
  3. I was wondering that apart from the obvious ones. I know a lady (she's a teacher) who refuses to eat garlic on a day before work. Even 1 gyoza is a no-go for her.

  7. Wow that was a surprise. Quote: You have to set your filters very carefully... I do.
  8. Theres been a few times in the last few months when "real" (ie not spam) mail got filtered as spam and I did not get it - causing problems. I read somewhere it is a growing problem as well. I try to keep all my filters etc as up to date and as well planned as possible, but there are times when people have sent me a mail and it just gets lost. Has anyone else seen this problem?

  10. This year is real bad. I'm wearing a mask today, I don't care how stupid it looks it is better than how I was yesterday (a complete mess).
  11. I like the bank book as well (apart from the cartoons), it just replaces a regular statement every month. It's handy when you've spent a lot before payday and need to work things out.
  12. That display looks incredible. I just wanted to say that.
  13. They get taken down and quickly replaced by the new year decorations that they have here....
  14. Power of million atomic bombs? http://www.cnn.com/2004/TECH/science/12/27/quake.seismic.ap/index.html
  15. Because of the weekends - 10 straight days off.
  16. Not something for the movie theater for me - more like home video/dvd - but very intetresting all the same. Not sure about when it is/was out in Japan./
