    The protest was condemned by Downing Street because it wastes lesson time though.

    I find this incredible, if perhaps not surprising. We're all fucked.

    Bonus irony in that the snap general election called by Theresa May caused thousands of schools to be closed for the day so they could be used as polling stations.

    Malmo have the advantage of away goals in the second leg.

    Eh? They'd need to score 3 of them for the away goals rule to be of any use to them. If you concede 3 against Malmo at home you deserve to lose regardless of the away goals rule.

    Commute in extended from 11.5km to HM distance. Left hip flexor made itself known at about mile 7 but wasn't painful enough to stop (guessing it's just a bit tight from 5-a-side last night, as was my right calf which took a kick) so I slowed a bit to be on the safe side.

    Trudged through in 2h22 with HRavg almost 20bpm below that of my PB for this run. Now being paid to recover at work whilst I dribble into my keyboard.

    Also doing The Big Half. Hoping to scrape round in a new PB (2h06).

    Courtois was miles back so stood no chance of reaching the ball.

    It was disallowed for offside though.

    (The player directly in front of Courtois was deemed to be interfering with play due to his position.)

    Peter Thiel started Paypal too - do you have to be a massive cunt to be a tech entrepreneur?

    You don't have to be but they're definitely in the majority. Supreme arrogance and willing to shit all over people are common traits amongst many successful entrepreneurs.

    Even if someone seems reasonable they'll probably eventually out themselves as a massive twat at some point.

    What was going on in London last night, seemed like traffic, police, closed tube stations all over. Madness

    But the content in the stores isn't the property of the landlords surely?

    Exactly. So who do the landlords give it to? Anyone that turns up and points to something saying "that's mine"?

    The property in the store is the leverage that the landlords need to get Evans to sort things out properly. Sucks for the customers invovled but the little people will get fucked over in a game of landlords vs tenants.

    Stealing, in other words.

    Not really. Stealing requires an intention to permanently deprive the owner of the item. The landlord would argue they aren't doing this as the items are just caught up in Evans not paying their rent and they'll get them back when the issue is resolved. In other words, it's not the landlord's responsibility to sort out items that only Evans knows the proper ownership of.

    Anyway, it's shitty for all involved.

    Slightly behind schedule (plan is 91kg today and 1kg per week). Away next week (and back on the beer) but hopefully the high altitude interval training (skiing) will work its magic.
