    Any of you cunts seen this?



    Bought it for my brother for his birthday while I was in the mountains t'other week, and thought it looked so interesting I got myself a copy too. Read it soon as I'd got back... it's great, really great. Funny but informative on why some of our sports caught on and others didn't, and of sport's place in Australian culture. Can't recommend it enough.

    Read Simon Hillís (Fox Sports commentator) autobiography. Great read for soccer fans, his insight into why he left SBS is fascinating. The power they had (lead by Les & Foster) on the national team was crazy.

    All things books

    Been struggling to read books lately. For work I finds myself spending 3-4 hours a day reading research papers. When Iím done the last thing I want to do is read a book to relax.

    Was able to read ďThe Man in the High CastleĒ on my holiday recently. Really enjoyed that. Itís nice reading for pleasure

    I have just finished The Bright Hour by Nina Riggs.

    I have also just purchased Being Mortal by Atul Gawande, I've been reading a lot about death lately.

    I wanted to get Jordan Petersons new book but had a quick flick through and seen he mentions Jesus and things from the bible which completely turned me off. Does that happen to anyone else?

    have been smashing through Red Notice by Bill Browder. First book in I've had no struggle to want to pick up and read. Basically an autobiography about a dude who ran a large investment fund in Russia - starting just after communism "ended" and right up through Putin claiming power and fucking shit up again - how off chops Russia is, what they think of Westerners, how they treat each other and that Putin is one fucked up mofo.

    The blurb mainly focuses on the Magnitsky Act, which is interesting in itself, but there's a lot of lead up to that. Can get the basic premise on wiki, but would recommend the book. The guy is probably counting his lucky stars he wasn't one of the ones Putin had nerve gassed the other day

    Now you've done it. I'd be investing in a nice new MOPP suit if I were you, or in your general vicinity.

    Consensual sex is an act of mutual exploitation. There is nothing positive to be gained from ejaculation, orgasm and physical sexual interaction. It only causes physiological deterioration.
