    Cryptocurrencies and Bitcoin

    Back in August after watching the Netflix documentary "banking on bitcoin", I made a small investment (£100) in bitcoin. It had already rocketed in value so I was reluctant to invest a significant amount, I wish I had now as my £100 is now worth £210 and I have doubled my money. There are many...

    Question Sixpence None the Richer...

    I'm not sure if there is anything fishy here but I was just browsing through SUFC's ebay feedback page, I was just curious as to how much the charity shirts sold for, and 3 things caught my eye which I think is a little wrong from the club's side - one in particular, although minor, may need an...
  6. Adebayor Stamps His Authority, But Not His Quality

    Adebayor just doesn't get it, does he? He's a fine player when he wants to be, but his disgusting attitude will always stand between him and Manchester City Mediocrity. The Togolese centre forward started this season in sparkling form and is more than talented enough to be considered one of the...

  10. Penny for the Band!

    Letter in Monday's Times I though worthy of wider circulation: Nice story. Just one quibble, surely the band was the supporters club's, and not the Sally Army's?

    Harry Kewell Goes To Murderers!

    Putting aside most peoples dislike of Leeds United, am I the only person who finds Kewell's transfer to Galatasary astonishing? Thinking back to when Kewell was a Leeds player, he was part of the team that played Galatasary the day after two Leeds fans were murdered by scum. The scum that did...

    Iranian to pay 124,000-rose dowry "An Iranian court has ordered a man to give his wife the 124,000 roses that he promised in her dowry, after she filed a complaint to claim it, reports say. The woman said she was claiming the dowry because her "very stingy husband" would not even pay for a cup...

    Scudamore Puts The Squeeze On

    Do you think that the people who run football will ever get to the point where they have enough money? Can you imagine them, sat atop a glistening mountain of gold coins, clad in rare velvets, adorned with crowns, drinking 19th century red wine and thinking that perhaps they‘ve gone far enough...
  15. Things you would never hear...

    A rugby commentator say: "...and its a scrum, a chance for the players to exchange kisses and phone numbers." "...England VS Samoa, a team of rank amateurs... against Samoa" "...now watch this ball very carefully because the ball is SUCH AN UNUSUAL SHAPE IT COULD GO ANYWHERE" -Courtesy...

    How about the guy that picks up coins...

    Also found a Facebook Group for fans of a guy referred to as the 'Penny Picker'. Apparently this guy hangs around the town centre and picks up coins that people drop or throw at him. He likes nightclub queues, so I am led to believe. He gives the money to charity someone said. Same questions...
  17. £5 notes

    Here's one to ponder.... Why is it every time I buy something under £5 with a £10 note I get a handful of pound coins? Is this a government conspiracy to do away with the "bluey"?
