    BBC News tonight: British cycling team use battery powered shorts to keep their muscles at the optimum temperature. My wooometer is going woo woo woo woo!

    In regards to the “Fantastic Fact” segment, Hudson’s growth spurt around the age of 30 sounds unlikely to me. If I recall correctly the epiphyseal plates (also called growth plates) in the long bones (such as the femur and tibia) close around 17 years of age, thus allowing no more increase in height . I did double check on Health-Tap, Dr. Jason Hunt, states around 16 to 17 years of age for males for skeletal maturity. He did say there are exceptions, but not what those exceptions are.

    Nice podcast, gentlemen.

    Two things.
    First, just as Marsh mentioned Tekken lightweight Steve Fox, an email popped into my inbox from one Anna Williams. Sadly it was not the top heavy sister of Tekken favourite Nina Williams.

    Second, after the podcast I went out to the post office and on the way back spotted a car in the car park with a personalised plate (very popular here in Mordor). The plate in question? “Dr T”.

    Is this mere universal chance and statistical probability at work or is it a sign from Xenu that I should take L.Ron’s shilling?
