The trials and tribulations of the shorter gentleman
at 14:11 15 Jul 2019

Not only is the shorter gentleman in danger of having a taller scoundrel reach over them in a crowded bar and demand to be served first (Phil Whelan did this to me once, and I am on the cusp of average height), but now I discover that it is harder for the more compact fellow to burn calories.

In my new found vigour for cycling, I like to check my runs against a METS (metabolic equivalent somethings) calculator to get a handle on how many calories I might have used. In doing so I have discovered that changing the height parameter alone increases both the base metabolic rate and the number calories burnt for the activity.

It's a tough life for the diddy gent, doomed to be dumpy.

Question for the cricket buffs
at 15:29 10 Jul 2019

Why are there only two divisions in the County Championship, then under that there are minor counties.

There are enough minor counties for another division or two in the county championship. Why don't they do that?

Imagine how exciting it would be seeing Suffolk work their way up the leagues.

What is a second striker?
at 11:26 9 Jul 2019

For context, this is the role that transfermarkt.co.uk describing Freddie Sears as having.

I am reasonably familiar with the role of a striker, though we haven't seen one for a while at FPR, but no so up to date with the second striker.

Apparently Freddie is the only second striker we have, and in fact we don't have any other strikers, not first, not third nor even unnumbered ones. Freddie is alone as a striker of any sort in a pool of centre forwards.

The Iranians don't like it, the Spanish don't like it.

Pretty poor show from the East Of England

Come on young chaps, those of you with some decent footballing genetics should be working a little harder to get some good East Anglian stock into the footballing fold.

I have a mole

The animal not the skin blemish.

If he was in the temperate deciduous woodland part of the garden it would be fine, if it was in the steppe grassland part of the garden it would be more than welcome, but it's not, it's tearing up the croquet lawn. What can I do about the little tunneller, without harming it?

Ancient settlement of the day
at 09:39 30 Jun 2019

Çatalhöyük in Anatolia, Turkey.

Where archeologists have unearthed a society with no evidence of public buildings, authority figures, priests nor weapons. Just a community where people lived socially and seemed to just get along, and did so in clean and comfortable surroundings.

Much like today's Ipswich-Shotley-Sudbury Golden Triangle.

I am a cyclist again. Picked up a second hand bike today, it needs a bit of attention, a little bit of tender loving care, but it was great to feel the wind through my hair again, as I tore around the lanes and backrouads of the Ipswich-Shotley-Sudbury Golden Triangle.

Loaded Language in the press
at 10:36 23 Jun 2019

I quite enjoy looking at reports of the same event from different sides of the political spectrum just to see how by reporting exactly the same thing, their use of language really changes the tone of the piece.

Boris's neighbour talking to the press is a wonderful example of this.

In the BBC he 'defends' taping the row - pretty neutral, thay is what he is doing having been attacked in the media for doing so.

In The Guardian he 'goes public' - pretty benign reporting.

So far as The Telegraph is concerned he 'admits' taping the row. That is a beautifully loaded term, it states the truth same way as the previous two but the use of 'admits' suggests he was somehow trying to hide it before.

Not hard to tell which of those is on his side and who is against him.
