Superbru week 7.5

Well it's been a long while since I've reported anything about Superbru, and that's partly because I doubt most anyone cares, but also because I've not had much to report about :)

It's now almost halfway through the tournament (technically it is pretty much halfway for the round-robins) and I am blogging on my 15-match winning streak and my resurgence to the top half of the SuperBry (AKA SuperBraai) pool from pretty much dead-last at the start. Ironically, I have the most WP predictions, most GSP scores, but this time around I have very few MP and few BP, which counts heavily against me in this sort of competition. In fact, only one person has fewer BP and MP than me in this season, and he's coming last! I also have the second worst TDM too, but interestingly, I'm topping the global standings out of everyone in my pool!

The Sharks have just beaten the Hurricanes by 3 points after a magnificent 50m penalty kick on the hooter by Ruan Pienaar, and before I get into that result, I am sitting happily on 2nd spot of the SuperBraai pool (that's quite an achievement considering I've been sucking it up badly this year so far and pretty much came up from bottom; much like MrP, although he came from halfway to top), 15 wins in a row, and in line for my 3rd GSP in a row (that's something awesome).

To put it into perspective, my current stats for 2010 are as follows:

Bad advertising

It still astounds me how often I see really badly designed adverts or signboards. In this particular case I guess the designers thought it would be cool to have a frog exploding as an advert for loads of awesome books... Even though I think I get it, I must be missing something here when showing exploding frogs is a good advert for kids.

Eeek! Water intoxication!! Beware the H2O!

Man, this sort of information can freak a guy out.

After doing some random searches for something that wasn't quite as random (I just can't remember what my initial search was for), I stumbled upon this bit of wiki-information regarding WATER INTOXICATION. It would appear that drinking too much water can actually lead to DEATH.

Yow. Now I'm going to think twice about drinking water while running - my whole life could be affected by this. Ayish!
