    It seems that emojis are the posting vocab of the future if Facebook is any example. Until recently I had absolutely no idea that emojis existed, now I know, thanks to the i newspaper. I certainly have not seen any on SZ todate, so will it catch on on here? buggered if I know.
  2. How many humans have ever existed?

    The answer might surprise you.... 114 billion. :stunned: And that's a very conservative under-estimation allegedly.

    Should England Ditch St. George?

    I heard on the radio this morning that some historians would like to ditch St. George as the Patron Saint of England in favour of this guy: St Edmund Their argument was quite interesting and included the following: There is proof he existed whereas there isn't really any proof that St George...
  4. Fog horn at the end of the Pier.......

    Ok so we've all heard the foghorn at the end of the Pier. But what is the other fog horn I hear these days? There are definitely two sounding these days - the normal high frequency one which goes on some frequency I don't understand, and another booming one. I'm fairly certain the high frequency...
  5. Question If Southend United never existed

    If the town of Southend didn't have a team in the football league, who would you be surporting?

    I wonder how long it will be...

    ...before people will get to the same place that I am in, which is a complete indifference about anything football related apart from the results of SUFC? Cricko's post yesterday about falling out of love with football is totally understandable, as was True Blue's response about not being so...
  7. The problem with football...

    Hi all...these days I usually respond to threads something around 7-pages in which takes about 2 seconds thought and isn't very serious, just the usual tired crap of taking the **** out of RM, (which lets face it isn't hard, I mean every time he opens his mouth to the press it's bloody hilarous...

    Mike Lapper interview

    Legend Mike Lapper, current assistant coach for the Columbus Crew, former defender for the U.S. National Team and various clubs, most notably the Crew, was kind enough to give me an exclusive interview for Pro Soccer Weekly. Mike is a really nice guy and gives some very frank answers to the...

    The Budget - It Didn't Take Them Long, Did It?

    So VAT is up to 20%. Which is very much at odds with what they said here on 9 August 2009 on the Andrew Marr Show: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/8192095.stm ("The Tories have "absolutely no plans" to increase VAT to 20% if they win the next general election, shadow health secretary Andrew...

    Most Important Musical Breakthrough Of The Past 50 Years

    What do you reckon it is? Personally for me I would like to put forward, the Amen Break. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amen_break http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwQLk7NcpO4 Without it, Hip Hop, Dance Music and the like wouldn't have really existed as it does today. Any other shouts?
  11. Rons Blog 07.04.09

    Firstly let me apologise for last week’s “void”. It was my intention to answer the questions raised over a period of two to three weeks and at the end of that period to review whether supporters generally thought it was a good idea to continue with a blog – be it weekly, fortnightly or not at...

    Prove You're Not A Cheat

    As Cristiano Ronaldo lay on the frozen turf at St James Park watching a chorus line of tiny birds circling his head, I wonder if he had time to ponder the irony of his situation. After years spent convincing referees that he had been fouled when he hadn't, he now finds himself being cynically...

    If the Internet did not exist???

    I was watching some crap music channel on sky tonight with the wife and stumbled across a tune…….it did not really strike a cord with me until my ears perked up to one of the lines in the song, which was something like … “What if there was no internet” Got me thinking just how much I...

    Southend Stewards Test

    I was browsing through some old programmes and came across an article which said 50 odd stewards had past their stewarding test. I wasn't aware one existed but if so, I reckon it must be a bit like a driving test whereby part is muti choice questions the other is hands on experience with a...

    What was here before the big bang ?

    Just a quick question. The universe was created by a big bang right ? Before that nothing existed. I dont get it, everything must be inside something else, if the universe suddenly appeared from nowhere what did it appear inside ? If there was nothing there how did it appear ? There must...
