“When facism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”-Sinclair Lewis

A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."-Albert Einstein

You don't know these guys here in India very well, lol. You take their average looking white women away, and they will kill you. Wouldn't matter if you replaced them with better looking Indian cheerleaders, they'd still kill you.

I never understood this game cheered for Canada, and Australia for the major teams, we lost but. What counts is the Canucks.

Hey all, to keep this thread from getting locked, I will attempt to be discreet with what I am asking so the younger posters who may stumble across this thread back out of it not sure what to think.

So I am going camping with my girlfriend and a couple friends in a few days. Now, I know my girlfriend will want to play on the playground quite a few times each day, and we are going for 3 days. However, we will be drinking liquor during these three days, and it might make it hard for myself to play on the playground. That's not the worry though, the worry is, how do I stay on the playground for a respectable amount of time? I've heard from some male friends that liquor makes it easier to stay on the playground longer, but getting to the playground may come sooner than expected. So what are some things I can do to make sure that be-fore playing and the actual playing on the playground doesn't end too soon?

More to the point, it's about time the cricket thread got a comment, it's been over a year :lol:

I've fallen out of love with the game this summer. The Pietersen fiasco, Swann and Anderson destroying their reputations, Strauss pushed out of the door, Cook failing to score big runs...not to mention my beloved county Essex having another average season, Bopara falling apart, and that feeling of betrayal by Danish Kaneria still hanging over our heads.

What a rubbish summer for English cricket. But a good one for many others!

Am hoping that West Indies win the T20.

True. The one and only time I've ever seen Sri Lanka too - I know where I won't be going on holiday to!

Gutted for Ireland. To go out because you got beaten more by Australia than the other team did is a really cruddy way to decide qualification.

From the 2012 Twenty20 Wiki page http://en.wikipedia...._World_Twenty20

The seedings used are those allocated at the start of the tournament and are not affected by group stage results, with the exception that if a non-seeded team knocks out a seeded team, the non-seeded team inherits the seeding of the knocked-out team.[8]

Same here! :) Going to be great except for waking up early and catching the game. I have these 3 Cricket channels but they never show these live T20 Cricket games. Oh well, just going to find a stream and watch from there. ^_^
