Small fish, meet big pond: Swansea City

WALES! How many times will I type that? Lots! Promotion playoff winners. Usually this means they're in for some tough sleddin.

Location: WALES! They're from Wales, a premier league first. Swansea is the home of Catherine Zeta-Jones and a band called The Pooh Sticks.

Nickname: The Swans. I think it's exactly the same as the way Utah are the Utes. I mean what's a Ute? What's a swan? We just don't know.

Stately, Non-Commercial Stadium Name: Deceptive Non-Commercial FAIL. Liberty Stadium, named after a property development company and not the concept. Originally named White Rock Stadium, deceptively NOT after crack.

Crest: Is that a duck? I don't get it. Maybe a "swan" is some kind of welsh duck. Pretty sure the neck is meant to look like an "S." Are the feathery things supposed to evoke a "W?" Mysteries abound.

What they'll bring to the table (metaphorically!): WALES! I'm excited about WALES! I think they try to kick the ball around a little bit, but I think a lot of their success this year was defensively grounded. Could be boring. Their uniforms are all-white (like some kind of weird albino duck) which isn't that exciting. Still, WALES!

What they'll bring to the table (literally!): Hull survived two years as promotion playoff winners. Most don't make it that long.

"There never was much consensus about the nature and origin of these sounds, and the only hard fact about them is that they existed."

On my wishlist

If I won the lottery, I would have this collection delivered to my mountain hideaway and not emerge until I had read them all or one of my dogs needed medical care.

Say, Ron, you look tired. Have you ever been tested for diseases?

Ron replies, 'At least I'm not a hideous fucker.'

She says, 'Are you going home for Christmas? I'm going home. My family's got money.'

He says, 'No, we're staying here. We're going to find out who that fucking Nick Flannel is, and rule the fucking school. So run home and open your presents. I hope you get a new pillow to cry into.'
Wizard People, Dear Reader: Out from the shadows of God knows what dimension steps the oldest wizard in the books, the Near-Dead Dumbledore. He is clearly a powerful beast and walks with dignity despite his age and attire. He sees a cat that he knows right before he sets to work. Chapter one of thirty-five.
He holds up that Snitch and bellows:

'I am a beautiful animal!

'I am a destroyer of worlds!

'I am Harry Fucking Potter!'
From the genius who brought you:

The antipodes of any place on the Earth is the place that is diametrically opposite it, so a line drawn from the one to the other passes through the centre of the Earth and forms a true diameter. For example, the antipodes of New Zealand's lower North Island lies in Spain. Most of the Earth's land surfaces have ocean at their antipodes, this being a consequence of most land being in the land hemisphere.

This brings us to the salient question: Can sugar possibly be as bad as Lustig says it is?
It’s one thing to suggest, as most nutritionists will, that a healthful diet includes more fruits and vegetables, and maybe less fat, red meat and salt, or less of everything. It’s entirely different to claim that one particularly cherished aspect of our diet might not just be an unhealthful indulgence but actually be toxic, that when you bake your children a birthday cake or give them lemonade on a hot summer day, you may be doing them more harm than good, despite all the love that goes with it. Suggesting that sugar might kill us is what zealots do. But Lustig, who has genuine expertise, has accumulated and synthesized a mass of evidence, which he finds compelling enough to convict sugar. His critics consider that evidence insufficient, but there’s no way to know who might be right, or what must be done to find out, without discussing it.

If I didn’t buy this argument myself, I wouldn’t be writing about it here. And I also have a disclaimer to acknowledge. I’ve spent much of the last decade doing journalistic research on diet and chronic disease — some of the more contrarian findings, on dietary fat, appeared in this magazine —– and I have come to conclusions similar to Lustig’s.
Is Sugar Toxic?

Small fish, meet big pond: Norwich City

With full approval of the www.3E.blogspot.you'realreadyhere.com staff, more of this shit!

Welcome back, Norwich. And with the questions surrounding some player for QPR and a possible points deduction, this one is for serious.

Location: Norwich, East Anglia. If Cornwall's the cock, then Anglia's the Beyonce. Knowhaimsayin. Me neither. That's in dialect.

Nickname: The Canaries. So, you know, if you're down in a mine or something. There's a long and convoluted history, I think. And they were called that before they even dressed like them.

Stately, Non-Commercial Stadium Name: Carrow Road. Which, as wikipedia wisely points out, was named for the road on which it is located.

Crest: Old as shit. People may have actually used that shield design at Crecy. I like it, though.

What they'll bring to the table (metaphorically!): GREEN! FUCKIN GREEN. As one of two who wear green in the entire 92 team football league, welcome to you colorful fruitcakes.

What they'll bring to the table (literally!): I know almost nothing about them. I bet they suck.

Thought on OBL

So, Osama bin Laden is apparently dead now, and I've been trying to think of something interesting or insightful to say about it.

But after thinking about it for a day, I realize there really isn't anything to say. Osama bin Laden is dead, and nothing has changed. Such is where Our Betters have left us after ten years of war and destruction and oppression and injustice. Everyone might have been celebrating last night, but when they woke up this morning, the world was essentially the same as it had been the morning before. OBL is just another body towering over the totalitarian abyss we find ourselves trapped in today, and one more body doesn't matter.

also: I won't believe he's dead until I see the long-form death certificate.

also: Osama bin Laden's death is al we qaeda hoped for.
