- Australian outrage over ball tampering born out of team's moralising hypocrisy | Kate O'Halloran | Sport | The Guardian:
Even some of its darkest moments, such as the underarm delivery from Trevor Chappell, may have flown in the face of the spirit, but not the laws, of the game.

I don't want a gun in my home, but I can differentiate between 5.56mm and .30-06 ammunition on sight. I think America's gun laws are ludicrously lax, and yet I can confidently tell you the difference between an ACOG and a reflex sight. I get nervous when I'm in the airport and see soldiers with assault rifles, but I can probably tell you what kind of rifles they're holding. I know about a lot of gun stuff in part because of the movies and TV shows I watch, but mainly because of the video games I play.
