    Footballer kicking a ballboy in the ribs to get the ball, barely any reaction from the crowd watching it.

    what the fuck?

    @alastair, crazy but it gets odder, the ballboy now has over 55,000 followers on twitter up from a hundred and odd, and was tweeting about how he was asked to work the game to waste time, using the hashtags "#needed #for #timewasting", before the game had started.

    Player got sent off for it (will probably be fined/charged and pose in an awkward photo with the kid in a few days as a PR stunt), and if you google to see the video the ballboy dives on the ball stopping the player from getting to it and won't give it too him so the player gives him a kick in the ribs.

    The silly thing is in a modern UK footy match there's usually about 8 balls ready to go, so he didn't need to get it off the ballboy at all. Someone else would've thrown one onto the pitch anyway. And the referee would've added on time for it anyway if the ball takes a long time to come back into play.

    It's pure frustration in the face of provocation, but there's still no excuse for outright assault.

    Ok I have been hearing about this ballboy booting all day, from my radio, and from anyone who hasn't realised that I don't give much of a fuck about football.

    The only thing the ballboy has to do for the entire 90 minutes is pick up the ball and toss it to a player, if the ballboy is actually not allowing the player to get the ball, he deserves a boot, it is not like he accidentally be lying on the ball while the player was trying to pick it up. So to the next ballboy, pick up the ball and hurl it to a player, and you won't get your ass stomped, it is not very complicated.

    Taking about complicated, Jamie Dimon had been spreading pearls of wisdom regarding the financial markets.
    Businesses can be opaque. They are complex. You don’t know how aircraft engines work either.
    Quoted by CNBC.


    Yes Jamie, but would you get on a plane if the engineer who inspected the plane before flight didn't know how an aircraft engine worked, I wouldn't.

    I really should avoid the news altogether.

    You don't know how jet engines work either...

    Jesus. No, but we know that the fuel goes in, the engine combusts, and the jet moves forward. Economic forecasters can't explain why their predictions are wrong, unless they're just guessing in the first place (more likely).

    We're going to have a marriage equality law voted in parliament soon in France so there has been a lot of homophobic bullshit said and written all over the media, but I don't think anybody thought of this one :

    @ WOOD - ANYONE who's ever READ the Bible would KNOW that Jesus only hung out with hookers and fishermen. And tax collectors. And dead people. And uh, that guy who betrayed him.

    @Wood wouldn't that be covered by laws against necrophilia?

    At first I was like "waaaait a minute, how does it replenish the carbon dioxide" and then I just pointed at myself and went "I'm with stupid."
