    Don't be giving him ideas, that would be a new way to try and seed interest in his non-tension eliminations. "The act leaving the X Factor and going straight to the gulag is........................................................................Rak Su!" (I googled the band name...)

    Similar thing for me. I was never really into any of those shows (bar being blown away by Leona Lewis when she won) but my ex girlfriend used to watch it - I was done the year he absolutely pilloried Jedward week after week and then, when they were in the bottom two, he sent home a young jazz singer called Lucie Jones because he thought she was a bit boring. Clear then that any pretence at a singing competition was done, it was all about headlines and ratings and over a decade later, he's still trying to flog the same dead horse and ITV keep letting him do it.

    Beirut Explosion

    I'd be more open to believing this if we had the undoctored footage alongside it too. Strikes me as unlikely that wouldn't have been picked up in any of the actual footage.

    Although I picked the categories, Biblio is very much in charge of this, so I have a rules-based question following more Eurovision research than I care to admit to. You say obits are quite loose, akin to Deathrace but Deathrace requires English language so is that the criteria here? If so, I assume this posted recently by Spade in the Curse of Eurovision thread would count but this posted by Whitehouse in the same thread would not (as it's in Dutch)? Just so I know... (Without looking, thinking about it, would most not at least get an English mention on one of the Eurovision sites which would count? Just thinking out loud...)

    Beirut Explosion

    Just caught up on this thread and a couple of things to throw into the mix: 1. The latest story on the BBC website quotes specialists from Sheffield University estimating the blast to be approximately one tenth the power of the bomb that exploded in Hiroshima and "unquestionably one of the largest non-nuclear explosions in history". 2. Currently catching up on 'Chernobyl' which I missed last year (excellent if you haven't seen it) and the immediate arresting of the port authorities is eerily similar to immediate efforts of the local party officials to blame low-level plant workers for the disaster rather than taking responsibility. Given Lebanon's fractious state currently, this is, to put it mildly, unlikely to be helpful for the government there.

    You're in the clear there, time, @Bibliogryphon picked cricket in the first round! And to keep it in the collective consciousness: can an admin change the title to include 'III'. Thank you.

    So go on, own up - which of the 5 of you (or more since) have to re-jig your Nobel Prize Winners now?

    Can you imagine if you'd picked him too and you'd been right? We could have been waiting another 5 years+ for this round to end!

    Surprised at this - thought he'd give it a go this season but maybe he feels he's taken them as far as he can, or maybe he can see the writing on the wall with Ryan Fraser and Nathan Ake. Saying that, 1 down, 19 to go...wonder where he'll end up next?

    Team submitted! If it's done next season, I may need a cull, but if it lasts into the season after, I don't think I'll be far off. Depends on a few people's starts to the season...

    Still planning to submit a team (with no great amount of science behind it). Can I have "Whoever Watford appoint as their next manager" on my list? Or do they have to be in post today?

    Except RBG won't die from a disease she doesn't believe exists caught at a rally doctors said shouldn't be happening. Or maybe she will and then you'll be able to say I told you so! Wouldn't hold you breath though...
