    Does Hell give off heat or does it absorb it?

    "Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)? Support your answer with a proof." This was an actual question given on a University of Washington chemistry midterm: Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law (gas cools off when it expands and...

    Blimey is this bloke for real: In his previous autobiography, published in 2007, Gerrard described Diouf as a lazy and self-interested character. "His attitude was all wrong," Gerrard wrote at the time. "I felt he wasn't really a***d about putting his body on the line to get Liverpool back at...

    Biggest load of drivel I've ever heard

    Not sure how they got my details, but some loons have sent me an email suggesting I sign a petition to protest about there being no women (other than HM The Queen) on British bank notes. Whoever wrote this needs to get out more. "Mervyn King, the Governor of the Bank of England, has announced...

    During Monday's Question & Answer session with Southend United Head of Youth Ricky Duncan, the Under-18s coach repeatedly made it clear that SUFC is "your club" and will belong to the fans even after he leaves. Ricky is especially keen to foster these links, and there were a number of...

  12. Sweet and sour side to last night

    Afraid last night, apart from the obvious sweet taste of victory, had a little bit of a sour side to it for me, albeit well after the game. When we got home my son told me that he'd confronted one of our fans who had started calling Macc's Sinclair the N word during the game and was then...

    Southend players you've seen score more own goals than goals in the right net

    Anthony Grant was in danger of making this list until his goalscoring spree earlier this season, but what Southend players have you seen in the flesh score more own goals, than goals in the correct net (league only)? 1. Drewe ****ing Broughton - I saw him play 25 league games for us and his...

    FAO all Ron Martin believers, apologists, apathists: why I shall be voting option 5..

    Posters on this forum such as mcnasty & pboreham have questioned what a protest against ron will achieve & questioned the commitment of those participating, whilst also taking enjoyment from lampooning poor jack in the process. I don't claim to have the right...

    The Dream is over

    The Dream is over I am afraid. We are now heading back to the bottom basement of the FL and there is blame to dish out.Having supported this club for over 40 years we are back where maybe some will say we belong but I feel we do not. This time around it was different we were led to believe...
