Re Novax the Tennis Prima Donna pal of Bosnian War Criminals, every now and then our Federal Government spontaneously kidnaps a visiting International Celebrity, it started with Old Blue Eyes, Frank Sinatra. Recent hostages include Johnny Depp, Amber Heard & their dogs. Now Novax has his turn. It's ...

Re: The Ashes 2021/2022

Fifth day of the Pink Test at the Synney Cricket Ground, the best news is that over $Aus 5 million had been raised for the Jane McGrath Foundation & we thank the Torists for managing to bat well enough to take the game into the fifth day. As I watch Lyon is bowling, The Tourists are 5 for 199 runs n...

Excellent research. I would like to participate & have the payment used as a donation to a worthy charitable cause. Yet I don't have those Interwebby skills, too old, so good luck

Re: The Ashes 2021/2022

The Tourists are 7 for 258 and Jonny Bairstow just smacked a neat 4 to move from 99 to 103 not out. Ben Stokes scored a much needed half century

Re: Paid Tournament Through Meta, Signups Open

I do hope I have not embarressed ATC, caused any blushes. I had duscounted the gossip about "an accident with a circular saw& no straw" & considered the Lady tennis playing community's oft expressed admiration to be collective superior source of intelligence on the questionable straw. I have no desi...

I would definitely spectate for free on Maniac v six Speedybat BlighterDalekBots. There's thousands if extremely Deep Minded members at Webdiplomacy.

Re: The Ashes 2021/2022

Thank you The Flying Boat, I agree with your comments whokeheartedly. 20/20 is a television spectacle for people with no patience, it reinforces a "everything now" mentality & rash actions, less care in risk reward choices, situations. It's circus cricket. May as well play amatuer park cricket with ...

Ten ball overs? Dangerous Heresy indeed.
Anyone involved should be burnt at the stake or sent to a prison camp in Siberia.

Re: Henry Ford's History has been Widely Distorted

Henry & Adolf. Yes it's a bromance that Ford are never enthusiastic about discussing. It's remarkable how many citizens of the USA adore Adolf Hitler today, the re~enactment of the Reichstag Fire at Capitol Hill in Washington recently had many reminiscing of the good old days. Perhaps that's what Tr...

That's excellent news Nearly Omniescent Kestas, Google may have Deep Mind yet dare I suggest that here at Webdiplomacy we have superior resources in the "minds" department. Which is why Zuckerberg wants to work with Webdiplomacy. I am confident that some savvy young whippersnappers at Meta/Farcebook...

If it's single homo sapiens versus half a dozen speedbat spec'd BlighterDalekBots and I could get my self requested ban on joining games lifted just to play in this exciting experiment then I would be a diligent player.

Re: The Ashes 2021/2022

Two days and half a morning session, Australia win the Third Test match by an innings and 14 runs. The Tourists all out for 68 in their second innings. Australia take an unbeatable lead ~ 3 wins to nil in the Ashes series. An Australian bowler in his first Test Match took 6 wickets for 7 runs in the...

Re: Nuclear power: yes or no?

I read a lot of dumb stuff and false propaganda from the climate change deniers, but clearly the proponents of alternative energy, renewable energy are not immune from similar behaviours

Re: Nuclear power: yes or no?

How to be misrepresented. Take an ambivalent position in the middle ground of a debate like this.
Apparently I don't support renewable energy technologies and only support nuclear power. Who knew?
