  1. Just confirmed Scotland v Japan is on 👍😂👍🤩 Of course still got to beat them 🤔
  2. If the Beer Bar is still open then the only place I can think of that could handle a number of bars is the open air eating area on the other side of the soi. Mind you it's so long since I've been down there that it could all have changed?
  3. Queens Park Plaza is to close at the end of January next year according to Stickboy Bangkok. He also states that 10+ of the bars are moving to a new complex on Soi 7, which is due to open next month. https://www.stickboybkk.com/news/queens-park-plaza-set-close-early-2020/
  4. Yeh All Blacks v Italy is cancelled, as is England v France, but Scotland v Japan is still on pending review on Sunday morning. F1 qualifying could also be affected.
  5. Aye, but it wouldn't affect the All Blacks qualifying for the quarters and they would still top their group, whereas Scotland would be denied a reasonable chance to make the quarters.
  6. Scotland thrashed Russia 61 - 0 this morning. To reach the quarters they now need to beat hosts Japan (who beat Ireland in the first round) on Sunday. However the match could possibly be cancelled due to the anticipated weekend arrival of Super Typhoon Haggis, in which case Scotland would be out. How ironic would that be?!
  7. Michael Geoffrey Leitch is the Japanese captain! 🤔
  8. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UqLQvhOke48 Best Irish golf joke, might need translation for some!
  9. Why does anyone need 5G?
  10. Vagina museum in London aims to 'banish shame' The world's first museum dedicated entirely to vaginas is set to open in the UK. The London-based Vagina Museum will open its doors for the first time on November 16 following a £50,000 crowdfunding campaign. The museum aims to educate and raise awareness of vaginal and vulval health and fight stigmas. Its founder describes it as "the world's first bricks and mortar museum dedicated to gynaecological anatomy." The museum will feature art exhibitions, plays, workshops and comedy nights all centred around vaginas. Director Florence Schechter decided to set it up in 2017 after discovering Iceland's Phallological Museum, which houses the world's largest display of penises, had no equivalent for vulvas and vaginas. She said the aim of the museum is to "erase the stigma around the body and gynaecological anatomy" for everyone, regardless of their race, sex or gender. Cervical cancer charity Jo's Trust found more than a quarter of 25 to 29 year olds in Britain feel "too embarrassed" to attend a cervical screening. Ms Schechter said the museum, which is in essence a cultural centre, will run child-friendly programmes for families and schools. It will also offer an outreach programme to ensure children feel comfortable talking about female genitals from an early age. "When they're ashamed of their bodies, it becomes really difficult for them to talk about things," she said. "It's about de-stigmatising this part of the body and being honest about what it does." "This is a part of the body that should be celebrated. The museum is a fantastic way to spread the message that there is nothing shameful or offensive about vaginas and vulvas." The Vagina Museum has also collaborated with the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists to engage women in conversations about some of the taboos that exist around women's health. "Both organisations share a common mission of spreading knowledge and raise awareness of gynaecological anatomy and health," said Dr Alison Wright, vice president of the organisation. "We believe the museum will be a huge asset to help people to understand women's health and to talk about it more openly." The museum, based at Camden Market, will host exhibitions, workshops and film screenings on topics including body image, consent, mental health and sexuality. The museum's outreach programme will encourage healthy and inclusive sex and relationships education, and will work with doctors and medical professionals to offer services and support to the trans and intersex - people who do not fit the biological definition of male or female - communities. Zoe Williams, development and marketing manager for the museum, told the BBC: "So far the response has been very, very positive. We are really overwhelmed by how many people are saying what a good idea it is. "With our outreach work we want to bust myths and we really firmly believe in inclusion and acceptance for everyone." Ms Schechter added that the museum, which will not charge for admission, will be inclusive of all genders because "not everyone who has a vagina is a woman, and not every woman has a vagina". Its first exhibition, Muff Busters: Vagina Myths and How To Fight Them, will open on November 16 and run in to the new year.
  11. Just seen this, pure dead brilliant, thanks Scooby
  12. The government is expected to table a motion to hold a general election on 14 October if it is defeated by MPs opposed to a no-deal Brexit on Tuesday. Boris Johnson said he did not want an election, but progress with the EU would be "impossible" if they won. Tory rebels are joining forces with Labour to bring a bill designed to stop the UK leaving the EU on 31 October without an agreement. It would force the PM to request a delay to 31 January 2020 in that event. A senior government official said a motion for an election would be put forward if MPs take the first steps towards passing legislation to block no deal this week. The prime minister is confident he would win the required two-thirds majority for the motion to be passed, the official added. Speaking outside No 10 earlier, Mr Johnson insisted that with MPs' backing, he would be able to achieve changes to the UK's current Brexit deal - negotiated by Theresa May and rejected three times in the Commons - at an EU summit on 17 October. But he said if MPs voted to block no deal they would "plainly chop the legs out from under the UK position". The PM said there were "no circumstances" in which he personally would ask Brussels to delay Brexit and UK negotiators must be allowed to get on with their work without interference from Westminster. "I don't want an election and you don't want an election," he added. "Let us get on with the people's agenda, fighting crime, improving the NHS, boosting schools, cutting the cost of living, and unlocking talent and opportunity across the entire United Kingdom."
  13. I see he's swapped places with Pierre Gasly at Red Bull for the second half of the season. Gasly only moved up to Red Bull from Toro Rosso at the beginning of the 2019 season but his performances weren't too good so replaced with Albon, who finished 5th at last weekends Belgian GP with Gasly 9th.
  14. It's been a long time since I watched any movie but revisited The Shawshank Redemption last night. Not disappointed, still superb. 🤩
  15. Sad to hear, stayed a few nights at his place in Nong Kai in November 2014
  16. I fecking knew it! 😉 "DNA evidence proves Marilyn Monroe descended from the Scottish Highlands Marilyn Monroe was descended from a clan from the Scottish Highlands, DNA testing has proved. The Some Like It Hot star’s family can be traced back to the village of Edinkillie, near Forres, in Moray, northeast Scotland. She is a descendant of the Munro clan. There has long been speculation over the Hollywood actress’s Scottish roots, but her lineage was unconfirmed until now. The LA native was born Norma Jeane Mortenson in 1926, but she took her screen name from her mum, Gladys Monroe. Two years ago, the Munro clan made an appeal for members to come forward to help to confirm Monroe’s ancestry. The clan meets in the Highlands next weekend to hear details of Monroe’s relatives. Monroe’s mum could trace her father’s line back to John Munro, a PoW exiled to the US amid the English Civil War in 1651. His descendant, Roelof Zeijdel, said: “I was most proud to discover my clan Munro heritage, but very amazed that DNA could show also I was related to this big star that everybody knows.” Monroe died in August 1962, aged 36."
  17. Has been for a long time, but very difficult to prevent it when so many of the police and other officials are so corrupt.
  18. Sorry Coss, didn't know you'd had a stroke! Me, I'm more Commonwealth Games these days!
  19. So how's it working out Coss?
