    Koepka falling to bits. Missing three footers like they're going out of fashion. Fair play to Lowry and Paddy, solid final round and finished top of the euro pile. Unless Phil has an epic meltdown they'll need to scratch his name off the trophy.

    I shot 90 yesterday which beat my pb by 8 strokes. Felt like Tiger knocking in a par on 18

            Decent place for Shane but that hurt. Harrington posts -5 I think we have a different tourney.

            Amazing from Phil.

                Mad that the idea of covid originating in a lab close to the original outbreak was treated as a mad conspiracy for so long.

                  Well it is just a theory about a possible conspiracy. Even if it ends up being true, can't see how it makes any difference with how to deal with the result.

                    I reckon Koepka and others fell away due to the Phil effect. Tiger used to blow away his opponents not just by his Golf but also by his persona . A lot of them were beaten before they even t’eed off. I think Philo gave off that aura this week. In the past he’s drive his way out of contention. When he chipped in on the par 3 you could see Koepka looking at him like WTF. If Phil adapted his game years ago he would have won a lot more majors. I remember winning on Davis Love against him when Love was 40s. Phil was leading but pulled his unnecessary drive onto the beach. I saw this this morning. Even his mother was afraid of the old Philo.

                      It makes a huge difference to the scientists working in this area of research, the governments that fund them, and the news media that unquestioningly reports the things they say.

                          Was amazing given the 1st hole tbh, from the second hole on Koepka played as how I thought Phil might, and Phil played how I thought Koekpa might.

                          I overread the first completely, Phil was huge to immediately turn it back around.

                            Not really, there is a log they have to keep and they can be audited after a complaint etc. It used to be a standard thing in the past but these days there is no need for fake bids, and an extra 10k gets them 100e or something, minus costs. They don't care about small increments in price really as it is just effort. I'm sure it still happens but not as much as people think. Be great to have a nice bidding system.

                                  Hurt my back on Thursday lifting a relatively light box; felt it go at the time. Pain was moderate on Friday but felt much better by the end of the day, during which I was pretty active. Think this was a bad idea as I was crippled on Saturday, can't bend or lift, can barely walk, but still had an unavoidable engagement in town so drove in and out, climbed stairs, etc.. Yesterday was even worse, was begging family for Difene (never had it before but know the reputation), got some well expired pills and spent day in bed. Today's the first one where I'm at least no worse than the previous! Still crippled but perhaps not quite as bad as yesterday. Also got my hands on 'fresh' Difene! Have no choice though but bed again as still can't sit or walk. Having no luck this year with my health. Any good tips for incapacitating lower back pain?

                                        Usually best thing for it sadly is movement. walking, light bending etc. Usually lower back pain is caused by muscles spasming and contracting incredibly tightly to protect a sudden inflammation of one thing or another, and so light movement is the best and only way to work them and get them to relax. not pleasant but i get it occasionally as well and that's what the physio always recommends.

                                          No its not 'mad'.

                                          It was pushed mainly by Trump, whose other big claims to fame was coining the phrase 'Wuhan Flu' and arguing that injecting bleach would cure covid. When that's the origin of the rumour, why would anyone believe it? If it had instead been promoted by serious scientific organisations, which it wasn't, then people would have given it serious consideration.

                                          I remember, at the time, saying the exact same thing. That it is perfectly feasible that these bio-labs might leak a virus as it frequently happens in the US. Here's a quote from a Reuters article on that. So it was always possible a virus could come from a lab.

                                          According to a 2012 report by CDC scientists, there were 16 incidents of lost or escaped microbes from select-agent labs in 2004, meaning everything from misplaced samples to an infected researcher walking out the door harboring a virus. That rose to 128 in 2008 and 269 in 2010.

                                          But when the people who are promoting it are mainly driven by racism, then its probably not true. That was then, and is now, a fine logic to take. In a world of information overload, we need to weight information by the origin of the information.

                                          Also, I think even now its highly uncertain that there was a leak.

                                            For the plumbers of IPB or those who've gotten some work done on their houses over the last couple years.

                                            Was chatting with my friend on Friday who got a whole new heating system installed in his house and he was it all controlled through his Tado system with smart valves in every room to be able to control the temp (individually) has his system on constantly and he remarked that where the thermostat in my house (located in the landing hall) is not the correct place. Got some work done on the house a couple years ago and got a new boiler & heating system installed plus insulation on the whole house, our heating system & hot water are on a separate system where you can have one on without the other being affected unlike back in the day you'd need to have the heating on to get water which isn't ideal in the middle of summer. I'd love a smart house and to get loads of stuff installed but my father isn't exactly Mr Technology and want to keep things as simple for him.

                                            Anybody done research or point me in the direction of some good reading material or care to explain their efforts?

                                              It didn't originate with Trump. It was a weird blindspot to dismissed it because Trump also happened to say it.

                                                    Made an omelet for lunch there that seemed to showcase the amazing benefits of following a few simple cooking rules.

                                                    I gave a bit of consideration to the ingredients beforehand, the big chef thing, rather than just chucking in a lot of stuff. Very finely sliced scallions, cut ham into small squares, crumbled some bleu d'auvergne. All ready on a plate in a nice mise-en-place which allowed me to judge the ingredients relative to each other - ended up chucking some of the bleu to not make the dish too salty. Pan to the right temperature and then a few minutes later - voila.

                                                    I wonder if the big thing missing from normal cooking, apart from knife skills, is just taking a moment to consider the ingredients together? I'm still very hit and miss, but just a mile ahead of where I was.

                                                    The current part of the cooking course is on dry heat. So roasting things. The veg I roasted yesterday were ridiculously simple and yet so far ahead of regular attempts. Today is roast brussel sprouts. The idea is to see how dry heat helps to concentrate flavours.

                                                      It's 100% a bind spot to ignore something because it suits someone else's agenda.

                                                      It wasn't even an out there idea. New outbreak near a lab that's had issues before.

                                                        Who exactly said it was a mad conspiracy ?


                                                        At the time Trump was using the theory without any screed of evidence it mattered not a single fuck how it started and using its origin was only a race baiting tactic to distract from his own abject failure to deal with the reality as his uselessness and vanity was directly killing hundreds of thousands of US citizens.

                                                        Of course it is a theory that needs to be investigated, of course its going to be difficult if not impossible to ever prove when the Chinese state will resist any finding that points to it. Proving the origin remains outside the top 100 list of things that need to be dealt with in the ongoing pandemic. However it is an obvious thing to deduce that wherever it came from that enhanced bio security anywhere that viral research occurs is crucial

Its not a blindspot, its avoiding a distraction from proper information sources that have a much higher chance of being informative.

                                                            Do remember Trump got daily intelligence briefings. Although also remember he asked for them to be oral because he doesn't read.

                                                              This. I had similar issues 6 years or so ago. Always, the best immediate thing was movement. Hobble up and down your living room if that's all you can do. Then get outside and walk around when you can.
                                                              Don't lie down, don't sit in an armchair. Sit in a hard-backed chair.

                                                              I did physio, went pretty well until he got me lifting weights and I had a relapse. Ever since then been cycling a lot and it seems to keep the back in working order. I notice running can set it off.

                                                              Welcome to middle age.

                                                                  Got myself up and moving for an hour thanks to the advice here. Hopefully pays off in the long run, back was getting very achy towards the end so taking a break back in bed now, but will be sure to shuffle around the place a bit in another hour or two. My chair at my desk doesn't help, I know that, too easy to slouch in it.

                                                                  Hitch, if I wasn't writing on a tablet I'd try to impart all of my experience with bidding on houses, in case it would be of use. While looking in 2014/2015, we probably bid on around a dozen houses, going sale agreed ('winning' I guess) on three, two of which we subsequently withdrew from for different reasons. This time around we only bid on four, three of these simultaneously, so withdrew from bidding on two once we went sale agreed (we were the underbidders on those ones anyhow). In short I agree with what Ollie said, that in Dublin there's no need for much gameplay or 'tricks', figure out in advance the max you are willing to go before you start bidding, stick to it. Some people advise making huge bid increases to blow the other bidders out of the water, but personally think this is a good way of potentially costing yourself money. For example in one bidding war we were in, bids were increasing in 2.5k increments, then one side bid an extra 15k. All that did was speed things up slightly, as another bidder simply responded with the usual 2.5k on top. For our own sale, 11 different bidders were involved, and the winning bid was the usual 2.5k higher; if they had tried a bigger bid in that spot it would have been a waste (but I would have been happy!)

                                                                  As you've already noted, don't underestimate the other costs - pay for a good survey when you are sale agreed, don't scrimp there or on the solicitor. Stamp duty and moving/storage costs also add up!

                                                                  Hammer home the 'not in a chain, mortgage approved, genuine first time buyer' pitch with the EAs when bidding, it's a great position to be in.

                                                                  Comment

Was between it and the Ping G425 Max (incredibly straight and forgiving) but the TSi3 had a much better flight/spin. I also changed from reg to stiff flex (swing speed is now around 103-109mph) which surprised me. For the first time, I saw a couple of balls dropping near the 250yd mark at the range and a typical miss is less punishing. The fitter (local pro) couldn't emphasize enough how much R&D and engineering is gone into the latest clubs to assist players. I'll take any help I can get.

                                                                                      I got fitted for a TSi3 last week after trying 6/7 of the new models. Was between it and the Ping G425 Max (incredibly straight and forgiving) but the TSi3 had a much better flight/spin. I also changed from reg to stiff flex (swing speed is now around 103-109mph) which surprised me. For the first time, I saw a couple of balls dropping near the 250yd mark at the range and a typical miss is less punishing. The fitter (local pro) couldn't emphasize enough how much R&D and engineering is gone into the latest clubs to assist players. I'll take any help I can get.

                                                                                      My SS is 115-118 got a stiffer shaft in the Sim2 vs the M2. Hit one on the KClub simulator that got up to 170 ball speed. I’m hitting it consistently 280-290 with some going nuts distances. Hit a drive and 6 iron to a 520 yard par 5 on Saturday (slightly down wind but still)

                                                                                      His rival it seems, had broken his dreams,By stealing the girl of his fancy.Her name was Magill, and she called herself Lil,But everyone knew her as Nancy.

There are other directors I love too, but they all have some notable misses. I haven't seen Punch Drunk Love yet, but I heard Kermode rave about it so I'm looking forward to it.

I’d say you are prob leaving some on the table with 280 (if that’s your total, if it’s carry then you are right abouts) but with 170 ball speed I’d say you are leaving some out there. Which is a great place to be in.

I prob play slower on course too tbh. Still here that gets me out there 280. I’d struggle at sea level I’d imagine. I’ve got a 50g shaft in it too. Lol. It’s actually all a bit pathetic when I type it out.

                                                                                                          I am as flexible as uncooked pasta.

But only after I’d managed to get our club pro to give me his staff Callaway for cheap. So now I’ve two 2021 drivers. Silly.

There are other directors I love too, but they all have some notable misses. I haven't seen Punch Drunk Love yet, but I heard Kermode rave about it so I'm looking forward to it.

There was one famous call with Woodward where he, like a proud child showing off what he learned in school, confirmed he knew covid was an airborne disease and that it was very serious (Feb\Mar 2020 iirc).

                                                                                                                  So yeah Trump.

                                                                                                                  I was thinking this might be true until reading the Strew thread. It's just a rehash of the same old nonsense it seems. Put together by Trump in his last days in office. Such a prick that guy.

Hopefully pays off in the long run, back was getting very achy towards the end so taking a break back in bed now, but will be sure to shuffle around the place a bit in another hour or two. My chair at my desk doesn't help, I know that, too easy to slouch in it.

                                                                                                                    Hitch, if I wasn't writing on a tablet I'd try to impart all of my experience with bidding on houses, in case it would be of use. While looking in 2014/2015, we probably bid on around a dozen houses, going sale agreed ('winning' I guess) on three, two of which we subsequently withdrew from for different reasons. This time around we only bid on four, three of these simultaneously, so withdrew from bidding on two once we went sale agreed (we were the underbidders on those ones anyhow). In short I agree with what Ollie said, that in Dublin there's no need for much gameplay or 'tricks', figure out in advance the max you are willing to go before you start bidding, stick to it. Some people advise making huge bid increases to blow the other bidders out of the water, but personally think this is a good way of potentially costing yourself money. For example in one bidding war we were in, bids were increasing in 2.5k increments, then one side bid an extra 15k. All that did was speed things up slightly, as another bidder simply responded with the usual 2.5k on top. For our own sale, 11 different bidders were involved, and the winning bid was the usual 2.5k higher; if they had tried a bigger bid in that spot it would have been a waste (but I would have been happy!)

                                                                                                                    As you've already noted, don't underestimate the other costs - pay for a good survey when you are sale agreed, don't scrimp there or on the solicitor. Stamp duty and moving/storage costs also add up!

                                                                                                                    Hammer home the 'not in a chain, mortgage approved, genuine first time buyer' pitch with the EAs when bidding, it's a great position to be in.
                                                                                                                    Thank you! We haven't got mortgage approval yet so might be getting ahead of ourselves. Who knows what will happen when they do a deep dive on my accounts. Apparently he wants to try Finance Ireland first. Some new crowd with great rates. Never heard of them before.
