The guy had a brilliant explanation for the pornographic films; ‘he had them before they met but now that he is in a relationship, he has not need for them. The explanation seemed to satisfy the girlfriend, what she was not too sure about was the reason why all the porn films starred black men and white women.

The Dagger Mamba – A Whitewater River Running Kayak

The Dagger Mamba underwent a redesign just over a year ago which gave it a rebirth as a top of the range kayak for serious paddlers offering extreme levels of performance and strength. Last year they released the new Contour Ergo outfitting which was a dramatic improvement on any alternative outfitting on the market, so now when you look at a Dagger Mamba, you are looking at THE top spec boat out there. OK I understand that opinions from certain paddlers differ depending on their own previous use of boats but there is no denying that the new outfitting looks the part and is nearly too comfortable to be in a kayak. This boat comes in two specs; a River version which is ideal for the intermediate paddler who paddles a variety of water and may want to make use of fast outfitting adjustment, and also the Creek version which is more bomb proof for those top class paddlers. Externally both specs are the same but internally there are a few key differences. The creek seat has everything bolted down, so it is slower to adjust, because those waterfall bombers out there need solid fixation guaranteed. Whereas the River version has quick fore and aft adjustment allowing you to alter trim on the go, so one minute you can be surfing, the next running a drop with minimal adjustment...

Premier League Title 2013/2014 Who Wears The Crown?

There might be just 3 games left in the 2013/2014 Premier League season but there’s still a lot up for grabs. The title can still be won by three teams while the remaining Champions League spot and Europa League spot are still not completely decided. Liverpool are the favourites to win the title with 80 points – if they get 7 points out of their last possible 9, it will be a first Premier League title for Steven Gerrard and company. However, it won’t be easy. Second place Chelsea – who recently lost 2-1 at home to bottom side, Sunderland – are 5 points behind and are yet to visit Anfield, while Manchester City who have 74 points have a game in hand on both of them. What makes things interesting is if Chelsea beat Liverpool but Brendan Rodgers’ men still win their last two remaining games, the title could go to Manchester City if they win all their remaining games due to their superior goal difference. It’ll be an exciting finish to see who ends up as champions and the Liverpool – Chelsea game at Anfield will certainly play a huge role in deciding that. As for the crucial 4th spot, Arsenal – after a few slip-ups recently – now look back on track to claim it and even have an outside chance of finishing even higher if...
