Thanks for organizing! Getting into it now.

Yeah that makes sense.

Man I am not cut out for geopolitics.

That was a quick turn around.

I've read elsewhere they've just suspended them.

Not altogether surprising, it was going far too smoothly!

ooo my partner just gave me The Windup Girl to read. Soon as I finish Red Seas Under Red Skies I'm tucking into it.

Sign me up!

Or, consider me following the tag. :)

Ah shit this has me on a binge now, haven't listened to them in a long time.


I really hope he's found safe and sound.

I need to get a telescope. There's countless places with next to no light pollution around in my area, need to make the most of that.

As an example of how far USA rugby is moving -

This was played in 2014, against a New Zealand 'C' side and was effectively a training run for the NZ team.

Now the USA has a full-fledge competition to develop the game, with more teams in to join in the future. Only going up from here!

I've come back to this one for years now - just sounds so good.

Sounds like you could make a NoSleep post on Reddit and drag it out to about 24 parts.

Fascinating stuff though, wonder how the hell that happened.

Ah wonderful - wing play is great. I played wing all through my high school years and was forced to play halfback once I hit University and the Samoan wingers that were built like fridges took up residence.

It sounds like he's a formidable attacker - as he gets used to the game he could try inserting himself into the backline at different moments. A powerful wing screaming in off his 10's shoulder is a seriously daunting task for a defender.

If you've played before you've probably already told him, but one piece of advice always stuck with me as a winger - "show them the touchline". When he's defending, rather than rush the attacker he can approach them from an angle that presents the touchline side as an 'out' for said attacker. They'll either try and run through him and find out the hard way that's not going to happen; or try and run around him falling right into his trap!

Sorry. I love that sport. Hearing about someone just getting into it gets me so damn excited.
