fun facts about the name Thor in Norway:

> There are 7 245 men who have Thor as their first name
> There are 2 007 men who have Thor as [their]only first name
> There are 27 people who have Thor as [their]last name
the northern UK feels somewhat more Scandinavian.

some Scottish words resemble ours

in regular English, they say "children"

in Scottish they say "bairn"

the Scandinavian word for child/children is "barn".

For a small island we have a wide range of dialect words.
Bairn is not exclusively Scottish, it is used in many places right across the north of England.

I used to admire Mourinho and was actually pleased when United appointed him.

However, after his 'heritage' speech after going out to Seville in the Champions League and his treatment of Luke Shaw turned me against him.

It was telling in the Spurs mockumentary that his first words to Dele Ali were 'I've heard you're not a good trainer' and he almost immediately ostracised him from the first team.

As with most things he says and does,, it seemed to be a calculated move to impose himself. Didn't matter how good/bad/indifferent Dele Ali actually was, he was his victim.

Not sure he's ever manage in club football again. Portugal more likely.

@andyc @basil I expected to see lots this morning from you two over the Super League announcement? It strikes me this is more about cutting FIFA out than trying to cash in? But then I know nothing about footie.

So yeah, smart money is on a well executed and successful strong-arm manoeuvre. But they aren't fucking around this time.

They'll think, (and they're probably right) that if they are forced out of other contests then there will just be a full scale rugby style split. And if they hold their nerve, that they'll come out on top.

Association Football vs Super League Football.

I love that PSG can't sign up because they are hosting the world cup and can't upset FIFA 🤣

this kinda reminds me of the Kerry Packer situation in 1977 whereby he got Cricket clubs to sign up to a world tour and the MCC went ballistic at having their toes trodden on.

Thing is, The MCC nicked a lot of Packer's ideas when it was all over like a white ball, colourful kit and floodlit games.

do you plan on growing vines on the fence to make a wee hedge? Looks great!

I needed to protect the neighbours from the dog's surprise raids on their barbecue okay!?
building a fence to protect the outside world from what's inside is a very German thing

That’s not a german garden.

@Elias Mårtenson Yeah, it's pretty, uh, bold to jump from a court case that rules that 0.3% of OpenJDK is fair use under certain circumstances to ok, that's it, software copyright is over.

It's extra disingenuous when we learn from that the term "declaring code" was invented by Oracle in the first place, as most programmers consider the equivalent of C header files barely even code at all.
