    A) not in 99.999% of case B) Try some ferrite caps (though ferrules would probably be as effective.) C) Now gtf and let me get some sleep.

    Stupid question: What's the difference...

    My DD turntable runs Clockwise when I put on side 1, BUT ...when I flip it and put on side 2 it runs Anti-clockwise. I put that down to the fact that it's just a reeaally expensive turntable...

    Assange extradition

    Gandhi didn't "flee" South Africa. He left (as usual) on a first class ticket).He became a great man,even a great soul but a racist for a great deal of his life. Until his mind was changed when he returned to India the second time. He supported the caste system and even worse,at a meeting with South African officials he repeatedly referred to "Kaffirs" a great insult to Africans. He continued to refer to black Africans as "Kaffirs" for many years. He believed that black Africans, non-Indian Asians and Chinese were a "lesser" race than whites or Indians. Nelson Mandela pled guilty to charges, including sabotage, which was why he was jailed. He said himself that he was not coerced in his confession.He did make a wonderful 3 hour speech, in his defence, which was his aim. ALL good men are flawed.

    Cognitive Bias

    The problem is... when "cognitive bias" is introduce into a hi-f discussion, it immediately becomes "reductio ad Hitlerum" and ...hopefully, ends that discussion.

    2018/19 Football Season

    If they're not scouse born 'n' bred don't give them the time of day. Does anyone remember a Euro cup final in the mid 90s, Steuea Bucharest and Barcelona? Bucharest, who were full of great players, chose to play everyone in their own half for 120 mins and win it on pens.(sound like Mourinho) Thought that was the worst final I'd ever seen, nope...this was! Did they even choose a "man of the match?",Shouldha been Danny Rose but was probabiy van Dyke, who should have been punished at least 3 times for not marking. If Kane's bottle hadn't crashed, immediately the the game started. It may have been a different story. In years to come, no one will ever say "remember Spurs/Liverpool" They'll just sadly shake their heads and move on elsewhere.

    Aaah, That's easy...UEFA/ FIFA = Corruption = (CASH for VENUE). These new(er) members of FIFA/UEFA will bid for smaller FIFA and UEFA tournaments - U16,U18 and Women's tournaments. They will meet all cost for the grateful federations. Their rewards? UEFA finals...

    They kinda sound like English football fans of the 60s, 70s, 80s,90s and 4 world cups. Been to Poland about a dozen times. International matches, European matches, local league games, never had any problems with opposing fans, but then... I'm not English...
