There's just something special in watching a fine race horse in action.

I'd taped it during the Christmas holidays but only now got to see it (needed a pick-me-up after that AO)
What a horse Secratariat was, though. What a champion.
Strangely enough I have been brought up loving horse racing and follow it quite intently here but have never been overly keen on racing movies

Also Hilde, I always thought the Hazard stuff was a load of tripe. That ball 'kid' was out to cause trouble, got his moment of fame and made much more if it than it was. Maybe Eden should have let the ref deal with the situation but it's not like he actively and maliciously kicked him

I hear that the FA wants to take it even further and punish Hazard some more.

Rare pygmy elephants 'poisoned' in Borneo

Ten endangered pygmy elephants have been found dead in a reserve in Malaysia, with officials saying they may have been poisoned.


In one instance, a three-month-old calf was found alongside the body of its mother, apparently trying to wake her.

Nope. Maria is just offering us another glimpse of her sunny, optimistic nature.


Nole spam going slightly berserk in GM. NID.
BigJohn heavily underestimated the power of the noletards crawling from under their rocks since the AO final: he trolled them a bit too heavy and got a permaban. Not exactly a big loss, though.

You usually have to wait about two to three days after a slam final to see the worst of the post-final trolling and hating in GM. There's a brief moment of relative peace before the real storm breaks loose.

In the Off-Topic.
B-Nard was speeding with his Ferrari again and lost his driver's licence, don't know for how long though.

The usual GM madness after a slam final. And the guys never learn, do they! Not that I care about LittleJohn but JM! I don't even know what he did again, should go & check if there's some news up.
Edit: Didn't see anything about JM.
