Did have a smirk about the Argentina result, the England game sounded crap.

England, at least won their game and are atop their group. While we can still qualify via the playoffs, NI were dismantled by Germany yesterday.

But it's Germany, they win football matches for fun.

And the less said about the Glasgow Old Firm, probably the better.

Likewise, Linfield v Glentoran (or Cliftonville) but unless Cainess is lurking in here, that won't mean much to most people.

The WTF isn't the enriched uranium nuclear bomb that remains lost in NC, ... the real WTF comes at the segment starting at 4:15 in this video.

Why else do you think smoke detectors have a 10 year life. So that they can be collected and turned into a nuclear reactor.

The houses are packed in fairly densely for suburban houses, and look to be above average size and quality - not just a tract of cookie-cutter homes. Beyond the alley are a few trees and a narrow strip of wasteland that provides a buffer to a railway line. ..... But if the three year old had wandered she could have reached a road across the railway within a few minutes.
