  1. I think you could be on the wrong forum looking for support on that particular comment
  2. Guys you can't have it both ways, was Musk genuinely trying to assist, is Musk genuinely calling Vern, or are you falling for yet another PR stunt

    VAR catastrophe

    Funny he was fast enough to get his leg to the ball, but you say the ball was coming too fast for the Arm!! I would have given a penalty the ref was correct.

    VAR catastrophe

    The guys arm came down from way above his shoulder and the hand and leg diverted the ball out. Would have been injustice if the game had gone the other way because it wasn't given Maybe the french goalkeeper agreed with you, he saw it from the other end of the pitch but he did give them one back.

    VAR catastrophe

    VAR allowed the correct decision - the hand came down to meet the ball - Penalty Keep VAR and use it as they appear to doing now - in short the panel advise the referee "You need to look at this" if the refs don't give it fine, but they must be seen to look again and be in full possession of the facts before the final decision.
  6. It appears the casualty played a crucial part in the grand scheme of things, he gave his life, and deserves recognition for the part he played. But he was part of a team that came through. Don't split hairs no person was overlooked in my statement.
  7. I think there were many others including an Australian doctor who played a crucial part in the evacuation process, this was not a few men being brave and performing heroics, it was a whole raft of people, some never underwater, who were pushed into tough choices. They all came through, that is common denominator and why credit goes to the whole team.
  8. Appears to me some posters here have encountered previous motivation to dislike Elon Musk, subsequently in this particular instance where he genuinely tried to assist, they are unfortunately allowing their ingrained animosity to cloud their judgement. Anybody with an operating brain should be able to follow events and understand why the alternatives to the boys swimming out were no longer required!!
  9. As it happened the sub was not required how about if the extraction had been delayed and the tunnels had filled, maybe then it could have provided transport after the tight areas to the mouth of the cave. I don't think casting aspersions now the job is done is at all beneficial.

    Belgian loses watch to foreign grifter

    Now you are making stuff up - come on look at the value of the watch....you think some one who is prepared to make a police report for10,000 baht watch is 'likely' to want to pay 5000 baht for sex?

    Sick of the Thai bash

    Well let us not gloss over the fact that your observation may well be partially true. The world is not perfect, just a matter of keeping the downside in context.

    Sick of the Thai bash

    Some 1998 - 2003 figures showed the fatality rate of 15 - 19 years/ 20 - 24 years/25 - 30 years all around 7x that of the 10 - 14 years olds Age/legality - hogwash from people who complain without sound basis To complain that children are in more danger than anyone else when in a vehicle without a seatbelt, or on a motorsi without a helmet, is using the children factor in an attempt to highlight an issue that is prevalent inThai society way beyond the school children. My son is 12 he can drive better than me, he has been travelling on a motorsi to school since the age of 3,now he is learning to ride, solo, with a helmet, but still occasionally does a short journey without, so not quite there yet. My older daughter currently rides to school, again a better rider than me, wears a helmet. Currently neither of them drink, or speed, for now I feel they are safe excepting the idiots in other vehicles. But then, from drunk drivers/speeding drivers/incorrectly maintained vehicles/ pure selfish ignorance, we are all at risk!! So give us break on the school children dialogue it's a very small part of the issue, if one cares to investigate the accident/fatality vs age ratio
