On Trial. Day 8

By Deputy Editor Sergeant Frosty.



Still AWOL.

You know, I could get used to this gig. Himself, the meat-sack Editor, he’s always grumbling. About uncomfortable chairs; a long case; needing to pay attention; not being able to put some witnesses on ignore; not being able to talk about the case.


He is very much Mr Grumpy.


So, no real change.


Yesterday’s discussion was around Judas and the possibility of Free Will creating an Alternate History about Easter. The full discussion can be found HERE, but one of the highlights was:

FriendlyGhost asked

Was it the good snowy SNCO's own decision to set this challenge or was it pre-determined?



The Olympic Games in Paris are due to start soon (and a reminder of Pete Usher’s splendid article series on the politics of the Olympic Games. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)


Which got me thinking. There are quite a few differences between the Modern Games and the Ancient Games. Sporting attire, for one thing. I’m not sure what would happen to TV viewing figure (although possibly on pay-per-view) if competitors dressed as athletes did in the Ancient Games. It might make corporate sponsorship deals harder. Where would you put the logos?

Long distance runners with no corporate logos.


But what other quirks of the Ancient Games could be brought into the Modern Games.



Discuss this HERE.
