  1. Hold on a minute? You don't think this is why they are supporting brexit?

    Actually, I am starting to doubt kunfus logic. If the ball hadn't hit the bat, and the keeper had missed it, then they would only have got five runs? But six if it hit Stokes' bat? That makes no sense. The act has to be the throw, (or bowl or kick or whatever). I think you are right. New Zealand were robbed.

    As kungfustu said, the act was the ball hitting stokes bat. This is the act which caused four runs, and that happened after they had crossed. The rules prevented them from going for seven. Which makes perfect sense.

    Melbourne vs Perth

    https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.livingin-australia.com/sunshine-hours-australia/&ved=2ahUKEwjQgpyNtrjjAhWNN8AKHYz7CioQFjAEegQIEhAI&usg=AOvVaw1D40BlzMkmnEh8p7Tijjw4 They are very different cities. Both are in the middle of a housing correction, but Perth will be cheaper. If your work is seasonal, or likely to run out, there aren't many other options if you are looking for a job in Perth. Perth is a pretty city, but many would say it doesn't have the substance of Melbourne. Are you happy in Melbourne?

    I think you are probably right. It's superfluous anyway. If it had been five runs, they would have gone for a boundary, and may have got it on the next balls.

Shoulder to shoulder with your Muslim brotherhood, or hand in hand with the gay community? Must be your own personal hell mate.

    All that does is make New Zealand feel cheated and takes the shine off England's win. Ah, but probably makes Australia feel better.

    There aren't any rules. You can support whomever you want to support.

    People tend to move from one to the other, bypassing the middle. Eg Ricky Tomlinson

    I remember watching Dave gorman review papers, and he would always find another way of looking at what was said. I think that's all you can do. We are so indoctrinated, you have to question everything. I have serious doubts we are being told the truth about Iran. Horrible country that it is, I think a lot of this blame must fall on trump and Boris Johnson's failures.

    Don't for a minute think that you can't be influenced. I read the sun paper for about a year, as the bloke next to me bought it and I read it when he finished. After a while, I found myself thinking thoughts that I didn't recognize as my own. The indoctrination is subtle, but it is very real. It is very easy to fall under it's spell.

    You think the recent rise in the number of attacks on homosexuals is a trivial thing then?

    I understand the patriotism. And the win was well deserved. But I don't think you could accurately predict an outcome between any of the top four teams, such is the high standard of cricket at that top level. That is what makes it such a brilliant sport.
