That's Denmark for you, isn't it one of the most heavily taxed countries in the world? If they just taxed Lego instead they'd probably be sorted. :lol:

As soon as I got to the word Danish my mind just turned to bacon and pastries.So I have no idea what the rest is about.

People moaning about not having time to get things done or rushing about yet they have plenty of time to stare at their phone like a zombie, flicking through social media sh1te.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Football being all over the news

Yeah, but most of that tax is a flat-rate local income tax, so at least the libertarians will be happy. :wink:

The Leicester news is HUGE and something which 'might' not happen again for another 100 years, its all over the news in other countries as its something just huge.

It's still a load of old bollicks though. Its a game full of cheating, backward thinking rules that allow goals that aren't goals, fouls that aren't fouls - put in some rules that use modern tech to rid the sport of cheats and then it WILL be something. I know I sound like just your typical footy hating person but I do actually enjoy watching the odd match. Usually what happens though is a goal is allowed/disallowed or someone falls over a blade of grass pretending to be tripped up then rolls around in agony waiting for the ref to give a free kick/penalty... then gets up and runs around as if nothing had happened - usually with a smile due to the result of his fantastic ballet move!
I'd happily watch footy with rules that make the game fair - currently they are not fair. It really grinds my gears!

It's not over here, where a football is something that you pick up and run with. :lol:

You in the US ? So jealous ! (Love american footy)

I've seen a few newsclips from the US talking about Leicester, saying that one clip did mention Spurs winning the title, quite amusing. I thought Greece winning the Euros back in 2004 (I think) was a shock, this though is unbelievable.

When was the last time wrestling was in the main news? Or even in the news at all? (deaths a side)

Football isnt main news, its sport
