    My name's an homage to the grammatically incorrect Wat Tyler, who led the Peasant's Revolt a mere 640-odd years ago. The avatar is the Monty Python crew having a bit of a moan about Pedants like myself. My pedantry is keen, but unskilled I'm afraid.
    My principal hobby is rugby, from which I retired (hurt) just over a decade ago; though I still follow the game, and support both the grass roots level, and Bath in the English top flight. I seem to be a much better supporter than I ever was as a player. I'm a fan of historical fiction and comedy, with Terry Pratchett and Bernard Cornwell as my favourite authors.

    I don't bake, knit, crochet, spin etc but I try to carry my weight about the house by being a keen, but unskilled (hmmm, that phrase seems to sum me up really) at gardening and DIY. I am, however engaged to Ali who does all of the that; though she rarely bakes - that's more for self-preservation of the waistline than anything else. She also has a tendency to steal my account log-ins for any discussion forum I use (most likely, if you see me posting in Dr Who, that'll be her); though I will make sure she doesn't use any of my mod-privileges.

    Beyond that.... I'm a chiropractor, and I work alongside Ali (massage therapist) as just the 2 of us in a small town that seems to spend half it's time under water since we moved here. We have 2 cats, 1 dog and 0 offspring are confirmed generation X-ers; and one of those lame-arse couples who got engaged a decade ago, but still haven't gotten around to actually getting married. My humour is generally inappropriate, but I enjoy bickering as well; so all's well that ends well.

Trump thinks "I am actually humble; I think I am much more humble than you could understand"
  3. You use the word "thought" there as if you've changed your mind on that. If so, that would be a very silly thing to do.
  4. Thank you, more information is always better than less.
  5. FBI have found no evidence that they're right to - as of about 5 mintues ago. F***, deepest condolences to you and yours - And to every other family who's been affected by this.
  6. Source: BBC live news about 2 minutes ago - stressing Reuters as the source, and that they've not been able to verify ETA: Looks like the original claim was untrue (currently, according to the FBI); so I'll do my little bit to starve it of oxygen
  7. Yep - he's white, so we have to blame the mentally ill; and everyone should buy a gun to protect themselves. words like "crazed" and "lone wolf" come from the Vegas chief of police
  8. 50+ dead; 200+ injured. Stay safe y'all. Looks like a "Lone Wolf" shoot 'em up out of a hotel window. I'll leave any political comments for the politics thread.
  9. Catalunia is a region in NorthEastern Spain - with Barcelona as the big city. They're been unhappily sitting under Spanish rule for a century or so; and have ahd various ("illegal") votes on the subject; most recently (to my knowledge) about 3 years ago where 80% wanted independence. The seperatists have tried political means, and got a semi-devolved parliament; but want complete independence. The Spanish government have only ever refused to discuss the issue; and declare polls/votes to be illegal. That Spanish law con declare voting to be illegal (rather than unofficial, unrecognised, unbinding of whatever other wording they chose to use) shows that the law is an ass; and civil disobedience is inevitable. That the Spanish government not only declare the vote to be illegal, but that it will be shut down with force, and use force and violence to meet peaceful voting / protest shows that they've lost any moral authority. That shutting down of polling booths, confiscation of ballot boxes, and physical violence from authorities saw a vote that still got a 42.3% turnout shows the depth of feeling on the issue locally. That 90% of that 42% voted in favour of independence show why the Spanish government refuse to talk about this like adults. IIRC the last vote saw ~80% in favour of independence; though I can't remember turnout for that.
  10. Has anyone got a side-by-side for Trump's reaction to a hurricane in Texas versus a hurricane if Puerto Rico?
  11. Moon Base Alpha has got to be a reference to "Space 1999" Classic British Sci-Fi from the 70s
  12. I'm not convinced that shooting down missiles is quite as easy as you seem to be suggesting
  13. What? Trump? Say something contraversial about something he doesn't give a damn about to distract from a political problem he does? I've never heard of such a thing... that seems to happen on a fortnightly basis
  14. I increasingly get the feeling that I'm watching an elaborate episode of Dr Who. The Master seems to have taken over the body of some random, irrelevant reality TV "personality", and decided to jeapardise the planet in order to secure adulation for his ego.
  15. Wrong thread
