Drew Mitchell: Why World Rugby will regret ‘dangerous’ Hodge ban

Drew Mitchell: Why World Rugby will regret ‘dangerous’ Hodge ban | Fox Sports:

Wallabies great Drew Mitchell was left “completely baffled” by World Rugby’s decision to ban Reece Hodge for three weeks — scrubbing him out of World Cup pool play in Japan.

I know Australia is on the other side of the planet, but has the blood gone to his head, “baffled” why, there’s a flow chart telling the refs how to handle contact with the head – only issue here is that it couldn’t be dealt with on the pitch!

Have you seen the entire Mr. Creosote sketch from Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life?

Have you seen the entire Mr. Creosote sketch from Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life? / Boing Boing:

The Mr. Creosote sketch from Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life went viral this weekend after director Quentin Tarantino was alleged to have said it’s the only scene in film he was ever disturbed by. Watching it, it struck me that I’d never actually seen the whole thing, and that you might not have, either.

I’d managed to block this from memory, and a lot of people have never seen this, the comedy is genius, but yes, it’s disturbing. After Eight anyone? 😬

Apple Card – Apple

Apple Card – Apple:

If you find a place that doesn’t take Apple Pay yet there’s this.

So the physical card is for when you find somewhere that doesn’t take Apple Pay, sorry, but if I have a card that looks this good I’m using it all the time, don’t care if I earn less cash back.

Luckily, unlikely to hit the UK any time soon that I can see, so I don’t need to make silly financial decisions!
