Just stumbled across a mildly amusing tennis video (don't ask what I was searching for).

From some of your recent comments in the tennis thread, I have a pretty good idea ;)

Have a search for 'Wozniacki body paint' which she done for sports illustrated a few years back, that will put a smile on your face

This program was on the BBC last night and for those involved in horse racing or who like going to Dubai it is a bit of an eye opener:

Escape from Dubai: The mystery of the missing Princess

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b ... g-princess

In February 2018, the 32-year-old daughter of the ruler of Dubai boarded a boat and set sail for India with a plan to start a new life in America. But within days her boat was stormed by Indian commandos - she was captured and presumably returned to Dubai. No one has heard from her since. But Princess Latifa had made a video in case she was caught and entrusted it to a lawyer in America. Days later it was released on YouTube.

This programme pieces together Princess Latifa's life and reveals how she had been planning the escape for more than seven years. Far from living the charmed life of a princess, she was watched and restricted by her father, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. The princess claims she had been imprisoned and tortured for a previous attempt to leave. The programme investigates the mystery of her older sister Shamsa, who disappeared from the streets of Cambridge in 2000 after fleeing the family's British mansion in Surrey. And it asks if the image of Dubai we are sold - of winter sunshine and luxury hotels, is actually hiding a brutal dictatorship of human rights abuses - where surveillance, imprisonment and torture are systematic and where tourists can easily be imprisoned for the slightest infringements of their ultra conservative laws

Talking to locals immigrants, who work there (by choice), its not a nice place.

Not all members of the Royal family are nice people.
It is rather timely this program is on BBC1 again tonight given the news today about Princess Haya:

Princess Haya Bint al-Hussein: The Dubai royal 'hiding in London'

I would question the fairness of having two horses per stall, one behind the other. ;)

I watched this last night and found it enjoyable having seen it reviewed by Mark Kemode as his 'one to watch', it is currently available for free in good quality on YouTube:

The Hummingbird Project

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TqFjKrg8-f8

In this modern epic, Kim Nguyen exposes the ruthless edge of our increasingly digital world. Cousins from New York, Vincent (Jesse Eisenberg) and Anton (Alexander Skarsgård) are players in the high-stakes game of High-Frequency Trading, where winning is measured in milliseconds. Their dream? To build a straight fiber-optic cable line between Kansas and New Jersey, making them millions. But nothing is straightforward for this flawed pair. Anton is the brains, Vincent is the hustler, and together they push each other and everyone around them to the breaking point with their quixotic adventure. Constantly breathing down their necks is their old boss Eva Torres (Salma Hayek), a powerful, intoxicating and manipulative trader who will stop at nothing to come between them and beat them at their own game.

Since there's so many LFC fans on the forum it may be worth posting a short little memefest documentary that sums up Liverpool's season, all credit to Redditors. LFC fans setting standards for meme bants, rival fans best look away :P
