    Excellent refereeing for a change.

    The Leipzib CB Upamecano had a great game.

    Had money on Athletico to win but would love to see them go out. Get fucked.

    I was just illustrating the only scenario where working hard doesn't pay off. Milestone exams SATs, GCSEs and A-levels aren't so easy as to make hard work pointless. The harder you work the better you will do. However, if you do cram and do well then you performed well, are not a 'chancer' and deserve a good grade just as much as someone who spent four times as long revising for it.

    E: I've realised I'm trying to pat myself 15 year old self on the head for getting C's and U's in my GCSE mocks.

    If the diligent ones don't outperform the 'chancers' then they don't get as good a grade yes, but if they can't manage that then they aren't brighter than the chancers are they? That's the point of the exam to test performance not effort.

    If the exam is challenging enough to require more work, then longer term effort will be rewarded over cramming.

    Similarly, if the exam is so easy that you can get a good mark with a few hours revision then you'd be pretty dumb to spend half the term preparing for it.

    Is that the choice?

    Kids who work diligently on coursework year round are rewarded. Not penalising children who achieve most of their performance in the exams doesn't disadvantage the 'diligent' ones does it?

    I got a £180 light from Planet X for £10 because of a pricing error. I even emailed to check before I ordered it.

    I just noticed that Claire Fox was on the peerage list. Someone who was convinced the Bosnian genocide was faked and still thinks climate change is a conspiracy.

    She's not even a close to Johnson, just another Brexiteer.

    The idea that Johnson won his first major platform as LDN mayor on an anti-cronyism campaign becomes more offensive by the day.

    I ended up doing both!

    I setup Plex on my home PC for my phone and got a DAP too.

    I went for the Calyx M, which is quite old now and has no wifi, nor Bluetooth, is quite slow, fairly big and only has single ended output, but it’s a full touchscreen with a Class A amp (so awful battery life) which sounds wonderful.
