    Premier league football is nothing of the sort but just a badly run and awful business.

    I started at the Arsenal in 1974. When QAD(ORD) Closed down, I was the one that turned off the lights and handed in the keys.

    I would think so. You wouldn't get good external ballistics with any metal less dense.

    I used to reload 9mm Parabellum and cast the bullets. Pure lead is too soft and causes feed problems, so tin and antimony was added to harden the alloy. It was very satisfying to turn scrap lead into bright shiny bullets.

    You'll need a bigger calibre to sort out our present shambles, if you know what I mean.

    That's not a hobby, it's a religion.

    Hmm. A penance usually involves a few Hail Mary's and an absolution, after which you are free of your sins, but marriage? No; that is on an entirely different scale.
