  1. Just playing devil's advocate here... but I thought Aleve was pretty bad for you in terms of side effects in the long run? Only reason I chime in is because I had similar troubles with lower back pain and found that a memory foam mattress (the ones NASA developed. Not sure what they're known as in North America) and proper hydration did a lot more than painkillers ever did. My problems were muscular and may well be a completely different problem to yours altogether though.
  2. Reading*. Not Wigan.
  3. Without googling them, can you pronounce these British place names? Leicester, Gloucestershire, Llanelli, Ballymena, Ponteland, Vauxhall, Betws-y-Coed, Meols, Widecombe.
  4. If we're to take the Premier League as an example. I'd say 99% of corners involve some kind of shirt pulling, pushing the opposition or holding them - which should result in a penalty or free kick. Most of the time the goalkeeper holds onto the ball for more than 6 seconds and I can only remember the odd occasion a free kick has been awarded against one. Throw ins are sometimes taken 10+ yards further down the line from where they are meant to be taken. My point being that all of those are technically in the rule book and completely black and white rules with no grey area yet they are hardly ever enforced. I understand that the referee has to apply some common sense. In my (often outspoken) opinion on this though... it would only take a few weeks of enforcing these rules properly for teams to realise that they can't take the piss any more. I feel like the same would happen with what is currently unacceptable behaviour towards the officials. Lots of other sports have shown that a zero tolerance policy works.
  5. How long is it going to take to answer all of these questions?
  6. Whilst I fully endorse every single one of these rule changes, I have 0% confidence of them ever being enforced.
  7. The commute to my new job is a little more scenic. 7am 5pm
  8. Try this (from March): http://europe.newsweek.com/will-there-be-coup-against-erdogan-turkey-439181?rm=eu
  9. I have no issues feeling no emotion as I watched Ronaldo leave the field in tears...
  10. My local team Tranmere Rovers new Puma kit. Badges seem a little small.
  11. I don't think that was the reason but if it was, there was more to it than that. The chairman wasn't happy with the quality and delivery of their training kit. The PR around the kit launch wasn't up to his standards either. There were also rumours that he was unhappy that you could basically get an unbadged version of the shirt for £10 because it was a standard template but fans were charged £45+. Regardless of all this, it's still a weird looking shirt and doesn't feel right for Southampton to me.
  12. Rosberg has been given a 10 second penalty and 2 penalty points on his Super Licence for his actions. This does not affect the race results or the points awarded from the race.
  13. From the article: "He is explicitly stating that people should not be held responsible for the actions of states or organisations around the world on the basis of religion or ethnicity" - Corbyn's spokesperson. A lot of people, in the Labour party and outside of it, are trying to get Corbyn out of his job. Just like Boris Johnson et al. did with David Cameron. The two main political parties in this country are tearing themselves apart when their country needs them to be together. Absolute cluster:censored:.
  14. Seeing as this is a bye week for the BASS team, just thought I'd drop by and post something cheesy: I finish working at my first graduate job today after 4 and a half years to move on to another company. For the majority of that time, listening to BASS made my job easier when I was facing never ending spreadsheets and it was also the first podcast I regularly listened to. I now have 10 set to auto-sync on my phone so you have had a big influence. It truly is awesome that this is still going so strong after all of this time and the standard and quality has not diminished at all. I genuinely appreciate the effort you guys put in and I really enjoy listening to your show.
