“Gravity is a cruel and unpredictable mistress, so…” “No it isn’t, it’s a constant all over the world.”

So many topics, so little inclination. Nevertheless[1] I shall write something, about something. I could bring up the high speed bus chase through Dublin[2] yesterday, which resulted in one fatality and many injuries, and some people asking why the gardaí­ didn’t shoot the driver, but other people are already discussing it.[3]

Then there is the possible sabotaging of poor old Tottenham. Did an Arsenal supporter spike their lasagne with Clostridium perfringens[4] or whatever was the cause of their food poisoning that hit at least 7 or their players. But the premiership is over and done with, so despite Scotland Yard[5] having been called in, it won’t make much difference. Spurs did not finish fourth and so have to make do with a UEFA place.

I could mention that Badminton was won by Andrew Hoy on Moonfleet[6] A horse owned by Susan Magnier. Yes, the horse-racing Magniers whose horse George Washington won at the weekend. Though they didn’t have it all their own way as Rumplestiltskin lost the 1,000 guineas. But Horse-racing is a little boring really isn’t it[7]

There is also the fact that Mayo are the All-Ireland U-21 champions, beating Cork 1-13 to 1-11 yesterday[8] but to talk about that would be to make this post pretty full of sports stories wouldn’t it?

I could mention the fact that last night’s Top Gear was one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen. But the fact that it seems to be turning into more and more of a Jeremy Clarkson acts like an overgrown irresponsible teenage boy with his anti-environmentalist jokes is a bit off-putting. Who’s he going to love when the petrol finally does get far too expensive to run his cars? Hmmm, yup. Environmentalists who are working on alternate fuels. Still, seeing The Stig crash that ultra-expensive koenigshklhafkljablerker[9] car was worth it. And watching Jeremy huddling in the back of their home-converted-convertible-people-carrier while monkeys danced around on top was fantastic. Plus the whole teams escape from the above mentioned excuse for a vehicle as they tested it in a car wash, and succeeded in setting the car wash on fire… genius. In a mad, crazy, foolish way.

Hmm, I seem to have run out of subjects…
