  1. The old thread's disappeared, so here's a brand new thread for discussing storms and convective activity on the European mainland, which do not directly affect the UK... A coupe of useful links for storm tracking http://www.estofex.org http://www.sat24.com http://www.lightningmaps.org/realtime today certainly is a busy day for storms on the continent with some lively storms over the western med heading towards the Italian coast

    Cricket - Summer Season 2015 and onwards

    in the end, an easy win for Eng, 86 runs.....India, in particular, Dhoni, pretty much gave up......very odd, indeed, the match ended up as a bit of a farce

    Cricket - Summer Season 2015 and onwards

    a good effort from Eng with the bat posting a solid 322/7.......a bit of wobble saw them slump to 239/6 before Willey smashed a maiden 50 off just 30 balls to add to a timely return to form from Rooty with his 12th ODI hundred....India set 323 to win at 6.5 an over, should be a good chase
  6. a shower here a while back.....in the clear slot on radar but storms within 30 miles to the south and west

    england being owned by yadav, 6 wickets for the chinaman bowler, and on this kind of batting performance england have absolutely no chance of winning a major odi competition in the near future....bullies against crap opposition, boys against a quality attack

    england's batsmen looking completely clueless against the Indian spinners, Yadav, the left arm wrist spinner is being made to look unplayable.....doesn't bode well for the rest of the summer
  9. A warm welcome to the new NetWeather Astronomy & Cosmology thread. This thread has been designed to encompass all aspects of astronomy for all levels of expertise, from a casual interest to the 'would-be Stephen Hawkins'! So please feel free to browse and ask any questions you might have, and I'm sure there will be plenty of members ready to discuss the answers. There are a whole raft of resources available on the internet so I'll post a few links below, and feel free to add your own links in what is a diverse and fascinating field of study. http://www.eso.org/public/ http://www.nasa.gov/ http://www.space.com/ http://www.sciencedaily.com/news/space_time/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astronomy I'll kick off the discussion with a question that was posed by Snowlady36 'How fast is the universe currently expanding?' An interesting question!. The best I can come up with is from well known TV astronomer Phil Plait, host of Discovery Channel's 'Bad Astronomy'.....According to his interpretation, the universe expands at a rate of 74 Kilometers per second per every 3 million light years of distance.....here's the link http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/badastronomy/2009/05/07/the-universe-is-expanding-at-742-kmsecmpc/#.U06z71e59tA Can anyone else come up with a different answer?

    World Cup 2018

    3rd/4th place match....the most pointless match in football....England paid for the price for not taking chances and overall sloppiness......Croatia though will get spanked by France, I won't even bother watching that game.....as for England,, simply not good enough, Croatia were there for the taking and should have been down, out and buried after 30 mins..........still, I'll take reaching the semi's of a world cup, better than expected and still the only nation from the UK & The Republic to do it

    World Cup 2018

    we're just supporting our national team just as you would do if your national team was playing..........it aint over yet, so from all of us, just to you.................jog on troll
  12. so to summarise, the 'breakdown' has broken down....no one call the RAC please!.............I was concerned when I saw Steve Murr post earlier though and went straight to the T850 charts to see if the -20C isotherm was inbound, now that would be a breakdown....lol

    Hey chicken, you've been pwned....give it up whilst you're still behind
  14. how on earth can a model 'scream' anything at T200+ ??.....pop your post in the moans/ramps thread as unless reworded such as 'GFS 12z in isolation on this particular run shows a possiblility, and admittedly, only a potential, for more cyclonic conditions in deep FI which as we all know has as much chance of verifying as t**s on fish' is completely OTT............. I am exaggerating a tad, but sheesh, your post is a bit dramatic to be fair

    congrats Cheese.....after much deliberation, you've won the award for the 'daftest post of 2018' and believe me, having read the politics thread for the first half of the year until it was deservedly canned, you had some serious competition

    I don't care if england games become the NHS cure for insomnia and they turn up at matches wearing shirts emblazoned with "I'm an england footballer and I'm a boring git'.....as long as we win!

    World Cup 2018

    just to add England should be at least 2 goals up and the game should be already over.....as it stands, 1-0 is nothing but a half finished job, so come on boys, see this out second half, take your chances and book us a slot in the semi-final!!

    World Cup 2018

    sterling is a waste of space.....absolutely no composure, bottles it at the moment of truth....it's the one thing stopping him from being a decent international......I really hope these easy chances don't come back to haunt England later
