  1. Can a women's national football team beat a top highschool boys team?

    I know for a fact it's possible. Back when the 1999 USWNT was in residency camp at Bradenton (this would have been 1998 or early 1999), they would regularly scrimmage the US Boys U-17 team (b/c they were both in camp and you get tired of always playing against your teammates). Now keep in...

    Truly great albums

    I've come to a realisation that on every great album there is one duff song. On Hotter than July by Stevie Wonder, a superb album, it's spoiled by Happy Birthday On Hotel California by the Eagles, it's Pretty Maids all in a Row, sung by Joe Walsh. Can anyone come up with a truly great album...

  7. School trips

    Now of late I have been quite astounded at the story of kids being quarrantined in China with swine flu who are on a school trip.
