FTFA: Very rarely something large will come into contact with the Earth, like the one which helped the dinosaurs on their way - that was the size of Britain.

Don't listen to him. The crater was just about 180km wide not the rock.

I just spent some time googling trying to figure out what bit of Lovecraft subby was referencing, and wound up quite confused when nothing showed up.

There's a joke about the welsh language and and the twisted realms that lie beyond our dimension in there somewhere...

CSB: A company I worked for acquired a business in Wales. Myself and the lead engineer had to go over and integrate their processes and systems into ours and then shut them down. We were there late the last night and gang of Welsh teens were hanging out on the front steps of the building being loud and banging on windows and stuff. We went out to tell them to knock it off and got laughed at. They kept teasing *us* about our accents. They kept asking us to say things, but I couldn't understand what they were asking us to say because it sounded nothing like English.

Please note that government evacuation areas have been set up in the following locations:

They're not doing too bad at all, are they? Goal difference of +8, and only not on top because Chelsea have played one more game. And they're keeping a hold of Sinclair (wise move).
