  1. Pretty underwhelming trailer. Refilling a pizza box is not the most exciting application of time travel I can think of.
  2. Great game. The VAR penalty still probably the most nail biting moment. That and seeing Pussy Riot wrestled to the ground. The second two France goals made it a deserved win.
  3. One coq on their chest! Jules Rimet is French! 20 years of moderate success never stopped us wanting more! Allez les bleus! So, England beat all the teams they were objectively better than and lost to the two they weren’t. Seems right. So what was all that fuss ... oh, never mind. Anyway, by that rationale, football is going to France but it would be lovely to see Croatia take it. Modric and Rakitic have been reliable as always and every game others in the team impress as well.

    Don’t pirate books, just don’t

    I don’t get it. Like if there was 2000 instances of a book in the ledger and yours wasn’t one of those then you must’ve pirated it.

    Ok cool. Not much of a techie myself but I understood there was some use of blockchain for creative stuff. Well I guess it would be easy to prosecute an illegitimate consumer at least.
  6. David Cameron is the dude that crashed the fucking plane on the island in the first place.

    So does the Blockchain not solve the piracy issue? Can’t fake authorship, can’t produce multiple copies. Just have to get authors to use it. There’s already some websites where users write on Blockchain, at the moment most of the content is articles about how great cryptocurrencies are.
  8. Sheesh, come on guys, get it together. I live in Luxembourg, I have peoples from all over Europe, including Italian and Turkish, mocking me every day for the state of my country’s politics. Luckily I have partially convinced people that Scotland is a totally separate country looking on with bemusement at Westminster antics. But next thing England will win the WC, that’ll be all I need.

    Round of 16: : LET THE (Knockout) GAMES BEGIN!

    Yeah, it’s opened up a bit. Some good breaks from England, Columbia playing it forward.

    Round of 16: : LET THE (Knockout) GAMES BEGIN!

    I don’t think I ever saw a game where the ref really needs to send someone off to sort it out. Columbia behaviour is ridiculous but Stones should’ve had a red a minute ago.

    Round of 16: : LET THE (Knockout) GAMES BEGIN!

    Yeah, I appreciate it happens a lot but I don’t see why it’s allowed. The keeper is literally narrowing the angle. I’m not sure it would make it appreciably more difficult to score but seems dodgy. They were relaxed. If the defender makes a genuine attempt to win the ball but messes up it’s only a yellow. It looked like a pretty wild effort by Jorgensen to me, but the pundits I was watching were happy with the decision.
  12. That is definitely one thing that’s irritating about streaming live sports. I’ll often hear that there’s been a goal/something major has happened from noise from the street or the neighbours at least 30 seconds before it appears on screen. Also different screens in different parts of the house will have more or less lag.

    It’s kind of heartbreaking for Messi but otherwise just incredible.

    Ha, Mascherano’s face after that goal.

    Round of 16: : LET THE (Knockout) GAMES BEGIN!

    Hmm ok. Doesn’t seem much use when there’s no goal threat. One shot on target that half and there’s not exactly going to be 25 yard screamers set up very often.
