    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.

  1. Absolutely delightful casting! Can't help noticing that the BBC article on this (BBC co-producers, and distributors) starts with "According to Variety..." as if it's news to them...
  2. Are you implying that Cersei is sane? Why is it important that my bedroom has "enough room to swing a cat"? like I'm ever going to do that?
  3. What will increasing hostility with NKorea do to Trump's popularity? What about the Rep party in general? Would they be quite so cynical as to... erm... encourage hostility?
  4. With his newfound hatred of transgender individuals, I hope Trump never had to eat chicken at a French restaurant! (Sorry, a jest for the bilinguals)
  5. Yes biodeisel cars still produce exhaust fumes... which are far, far cleaner; especially if burning produced biodeisel rather than recycled chip-oil; and verging a genuinely clean burn it produced by algae farming (which can take place in inhospitable areas that can't produce anything else). With strict enough regulations, you could make biodiesel burn as cleanly as a bioethanol fireplace in my living room - it's just a matter of how expensive you want to make production. Biodiesel also regulates a neutral carbon cycle, as opposed to unlocking carbon that's been trapped for several millennia. So apart from being way better for passing pedestrians, it's a shit load better for the planet - all whilst requiring no new infrastructure whatsoever (just farms). Hydrogen cells are basically chemical batteries - you out electricity into water to create hydrogen and oxygen; then burn the hydrogen with atmospheric oxygen to create water vapour. Hydrogen has this propensity for fairly dramatic combustion to - see an footage of the Hindeberg for an example of hydrogen storage gone wrong. My understanding on Lithium is that it's not so much the decommissioning (far too valuable to let the Indians have it) it's he extraction in the first place - IIRC it's about the most environmentally harmful production process of any compound. Move past lithium and those concerns (probably and more-or-less) vanish. The chances of leaving the EU with an actual deal were always slim to none - and that was back when we had a competent politician in charge; not a sound-bite merchant more interested in.... well, hiding than actually leading. I firmly believe that we should have a second referendum after negotiations have concluded, with a likely question of No deal, or Scrap Brexit (or a slim possibility of really, really shit deal, or Scrap Brexit)
  6. Hydrogen is the by far the better long term bet; but 20 years is way too soon for it. Last time I looked into it, electric cars were no better than internal combustion over a life-span in environmental terms (though they do have fantastic PR there, as everyone ignores the impact of Lithium extraction, and the fossil fuels burned creating the electricity in the first place) I'm still a huge fan of Biodiesel - specifically that created from algae rathan than grain/recycled chip oil. It remains to be seen whether the future ban kills biodiesel as an option or not. I'm also surprised that they seem to be including hybrid cars as being banned - I would expect that to change by the time 2040 rolls around.
  7. Equally, Evans works what? 340-odd days a year? As opposed to the strictly crew who do what 2 days a week for 12 weeks? Personally I'm not particularly surprised by the sizes of many of these premium salaries, more surprised that some, like Shearer or Inverdale are considered to be premium level
  8. How did we all miss this? https://thewest.com.au/news/offbeat/hilarious-video-of-wimbledon-fan-forced-into-a-skirt-by-kim-clijsters-to-play-alongside-champions-ng-b88538126z
  9. So will this start to actually reach Don Sr? or does he still have plausible deniability if his son, son-in-law, and best friend are willing to throw themselves under the bus for him?
  10. Aren't you supposed to do that BEFORE you squeal (like a pig)? And... aren't mob lawyers supposed to know how to barter for immunity, and how to take the 5th?
  11. I've never heard that expression before - I neither know nor want to know what it even means. Her excuse that it was unintentional just makes it worse; that's just part of her lexicon, she just threw it out conversationally.
  12. Wow
  13. And poof in a cloud of blue smoke, TM reveals her very own secret Money Tree Will TM kindly explain to us why in the name of austerity there has been a necessary public sector pay freeze, swathing cuts to welfare and disability benefits and a slashing of funding to schools and hospitals but she can suddenly find £1bn from a cocoa tin under her bed to bribe 10 rabid loonies for their votes in parliament to shore up her weak and feeble government and overcome the calamity of a totally unnecessary election that was her and only her decision to call? Probably not, it will be arrogantly brushed off as in the national interests
  14. TBH, that match, and result, was about in-line with my expectations. The kiwis coped with our power up front, which surely was only a surprise to Gatland. Our power in midfield was making progress into the Kiwi defence, but not quite breaking it - which surely surprised nobody, or maybe made a little more progress than some expected. Our broken field play from the back 3 was pretty exciting. We couldn't keep up with the pace, intensity and daring that the AB's put on the game - we won't surprise anyone who actually follows rugby. The Lions had 3-5* try scoring opportunities, and converted about 50% of them - which sounds about right (and very pleasing that we manufactured that many TBH). The ABs had 3 try scoring opportunities, and converted 100% of them - which sounds about right. In reaction Gatland calls for "more physicality" from the lions - which once again, is 100% expected from him. *Daly in the opening minute, Te'o slipping going for the inside shoulder, Watson trying to force one more offload - personally I'd call 4 good opportunities
