Reasoned Debate

I’m sure by now you’ve all seen the excellent Super Size Me, the entertaining documentary in which New York filmmaker Morgan Spurlock demonstrates that eating exclusively at McDonald’s for a month will, gasp, make you fat. Sal and I caught it a couple of weeks ago, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Of course it’s a one-sided ...

Blog Fodder

Someone must have been paying attention lately, because shortly after writing the entry below apologising for my lack of updates, I was rewarded with not one, but two encounters with blog-worthy nutters.

Australia vs Pakistan

This weekend’s gloriously sunny Saturday saw me pay my first ever visit to Lord’s.
