    Phil's slightly unorthodox batting technique was fun to watch, and his cut on the off-side was just exquisite. This was a complete freak accident which took away a very talented player from the sport. Always 63 not out. RIP Phil Hughes.

    Thoughts also go out to the bowler Sean Abbott. This was no fault of his, and it was just a regular delivery that is bowled hundreds of times per test match. Hope he recovers, but it must be really tough on him right now.

    If money was the major motive for scientists, then if anything, we would see more scientific papers deny climate change coz those oil companies would gladly make the money rain in the labs. But the oil companies know a majority of the scientists can't be bought off because they are passionate/concerned and money is not a motivating factor. So instead these corporations make the money rain in Washington as well as on media outlets which promote the view that there is a "debate", when most of the scientific community which looks at the data and does the hard work has already come to the conclusion that climate change is a fact, not a debate.

    I do not pay attention to these results from scientists who have their interests and jobs future at stake.

    So do you not go to doctors to take medication when you get ill because, you know, the results of the test are from doctors "who have their interests and jobs future at stake"?

    Personally I didn't think this year was warmer than last and in fact we had higher rain fall so is this in fact proof of global wettning?

    Yeah, because why should we give a damn about accurate scientific data and measurements when all we have to do is look at what you personally think. All these scientists are just wasting their time I tell you.

    As much as I sympathize with their cause, they are gonna get crushed. China does not tolerate dissent, nor would it ever risk allowing people to have actual power. Democracy is the biggest threat to the Communist Party's rule, and they will nip the movement in the bud. All I hope for is that this does not turn into another Tiananmen.

    That was a beatdown. Kudos to Nishikori for the remarkable effort he put in throughout the tournament. The last hurdle proved just one too many. Congrats to Cilic for the win.

    While it won't be an entirely necessary signing, Falcao joining United makes a statement. This has been a window we have been dreaming of for ages. Quite extraordinary the amount of talent we have brought in. Way to go Ed Woodward in redeeming yourself. Still think we needed a commanding presence at the back though, either a DM or CD.

    Now, if only we could have cleared the deadwood Cleverley and Anderson.

    Incredibly sad to see him go. He is such a fantastic player. But the system United play ensured he could not have much impact. Hopefully he will enjoy great success with Dortmund.

    TEPCO's ineptitude would be hilarious if it wasn't for the disastrous consequences. That this company is still in charge of that fiasco just beggars belief.

    @Stuart: I never said India's nuclear weapons were a deterrent against a conventional war. They are a deterrent against nuclear war. During the 1999 conflict, when the situation was threatening to turn into an all-out conventional war, the US and other countries put huge pressure on Pakistan to withdraw troops specifically because there was a risk that the war would go nuclear, with both countries having access to nuclear weapons. And even in that situation India reiterated that it would not use nukes first, whereas several of Pakistan's key figures in government and army repeatedly said they would not rule out a nuke strike first.

    India see's it's weapons as a deterrent against it's nuclear neighbors? That's funny since Pakistan and India have remained at war with each other for so many years.

    To correct you, India and Pakistan have gone to war 4 times (1947, 1965, 1971, 1999). There now is a ceasefire in effect and direct hostilities have ceased, though border skirmishes remain quite common. India's nuclear weapons do serve as a deterrent in that the Pakistan knows that any use of nuclear weapons from it's side will evoke a retaliation that will ensure the mutual destruction of both countries.

    Note that India has a "no-first use" doctrine with regards to nuclear weapons. Quoting from Wikipedia:

    India has a declared nuclear no-first-use policy and is in the process of developing a nuclear doctrine based on "credible minimum deterrence." In August 1999, the Indian government released a draft of the doctrine which asserts that nuclear weapons are solely for deterrence and that India will pursue a policy of "retaliation only". The document also maintains that India "will not be the first to initiate a nuclear first strike, but will respond with punitive retaliation should deterrence fail" and that decisions to authorise the use of nuclear weapons would be made by the Prime Minister or his 'designated successor(s).'" According to the NRDC, despite the escalation of tensions between India and Pakistan in 2001–2002, India remains committed to its nuclear no-first-use policy.

    Quite frankly I don't think India is in any position to give up nuclear weapons or accede to demands of banning tests. The situation with India's neighbors remains volatile, and there are rumors that there is going to another military coup (maybe not open but more of a soft one) in Pakistan. Given this precarious situation, India cannot afford to let go of it's most effective deterrence.

    ^ I take into account the fact that in total 6 players on the pitch for United throughout the game have PL winners medals to their name. Welbeck, Chicharito, Kagawa, this team had more than enough firepower to beat Dons. At this point it seems more of an issue of confidence for half the lot and the other half lot simply not being good enough for United.

    I won't judge van Gaal, I don't need to. The guy has won almost every major trophy in Europe. His system will take time to work, as it did in Bayern and Barcelona. 3 defenders can be tough to play, it requires great awareness and athletic ability. Defending spaces is tougher than defending players. Signing Di Maria is a step in the right direction for providing creativity. Hopefully with a couple more signings (we need a defender badly) and better luck with injuries, we will be right up there come the business end of the season.

    And gets twatted by MK Dons immediately afterwards.

    From beating Real, Inter and Liverpool in pre-season to breaking the British transfer record fee to being humiliated by a League 1 team, quite frankly it's been a roller coaster these past few weeks as a United fan. Hopefully things can only get better from here.
