So who are the Irish 'closely linked genetically' with then?  Not the Scots, English or Africans, then who?  Must be someone, surely?

Each other ?

Twinning Races

Dave, it took me over an hour to get mine (serves me right for hanging around at finish only to come round corner and see queue out of gates!).

I believe the issue was two fold this year .. firstly they switched to using sticky labels for putting numbers on bags (previously they've always been tie on ones) and these were useless as mine fell off twice when he was trying to attach it , so apparently all the labels fell off the bags.

Secondly was told a number of the earlier finshers who couldn't find their bags just rifled through the whole lot piling them in to a big mess, which then just exacerbated the whole thing (although quite why ANY runner should have been allowed free reign in the baggage is beyond me and only slightly worrying on a security front).

If races were to have twins, a la twinned towns, which races do you think should be partnered.

I'll go with ... Greater Manchester Marathon (2012 version) and Helsby 4 Villages (2014)

Thanks for that KK, and I was using my best material too.

Blue whales ... they just don't get the exercise they need.

And besides our local Tesco just never has enough Plankton in

Would these be the same elderly who bought up their homes at rock bottom prices along with some investment properties, cheered as they fuelled the housing market leading to double digit percentage price increases year on year and now that theyve paid off their homes have made it impossible for an entire generation to get on the housing ladder?

Nope, these would be the same elderly that, ran the schools that educated you, staffed the hospitals that fixed you when you were ill, farmed the land so you could eat as a child and fought the wars to ensure your freedom .... you know those old ones !
