Re: The athletics/running thread

Remember when Roger Bannister broke the 4-minute mile way back when? Whilst it was run on a normal track he did have pacemakers (the only one of which I recall was Chris Chataway) and was organised as a world record attempt - no one complained then; in fact he was lauded throughout the world of athl...

See, I always thought that Vela and Clough paired incredibly well. So well, in fact, that I said at the time that if anyone came in for one then they should also come in for the other.

Re: Happy Birthday Tango - 80!

Sorry, TANGO, but I couldn't make it to the computer yesterday. I trust the sherries have not affected you this morning. A belated happy birthday from me, old mate. :oyea:

Re: creeeeeeeekeeeeeet

An admirable finish to an absorbing Ashes test match. My man of the match is Jack Leach. Seventy odd runs to safety must have seemed a very tall mountain to climb. I am well aware of Stokes' efforts to keep him away from the ball, but he still faced 17 balls (let's call it three overs), for one run,...

Re: News stories that make you think, or not...

I have just looked at the source newspaper story. A female cow; who'd have thought it? Armed police shot dead the stray animal also sounds odd, does it not? Given the (rather dubious) reporting seems to indicate that the animal was calm and merely grazing on whatever was available to it. To kill the...

Re: Chairboys v Choirboys; the Wanderers against some Wanderers. Wycombe (a). Sat 3 August - 3pm

I echo, TANGO, the sentiment of our friend of the Iberian peninsula. I thank you for my delayed readings of your past contributions to 'game days'. I have often wondered, my friend (we are still are we not?), how you managed to pump out to the 'net what you did.

THANK YOU.

Wow, TANGO, I didn't expect that response. Shut down the thread and demand the Admin to do that? From which side of the waterbed did you disembark yesterday? :oops:

Thanks to Bruce and Pru for supporting my opinion. :)

Re: Science, Experiment, and the failure of Reality.

Yes, TANGO, the position of sunrise and sunset varies daily. Where I live the variation is from roughly northeast in winter and southeast in summer. Likewise sunset varies from northwest in winter and south west in summer. Those directions are at the extremes of the apparent travel of the sun. Your ...

Come on chaps, Lancashire Lad's doing no harm.

To you, TANGO, and your star map question. The majority of star maps that include your part of the northern hemisphere and are centred roughly on your location put you at the centre of the map and are marked outside the circle, which indicates your horizon (excluding obstructions) with the four card...

Spotty, is this the unit of which you speak? http://www.flybird.co.uk/helios_evostar_458_2.htm It looks like a decent sort of kit. If the objective lens (150mm) is tucked in the forward end of that tube, then it's a formidable piece of equipment, including a decent mount. Is chromatic aberration a p...
