Oh dear. Obviously I'm in the minority. Woods, surely, is bigger than responding like this to that 'interview'? Obviously not. He either hasn't a clue re. PR or he's incredibly badly advised. He must have one of the thinnest skins around and he'd have been far better advised to have either laughed (hard, I know, as the 'interview' wasn't actually that funny) or taken a lighter-hearted approach to shooting it down. Shame he (or his advisors - I'd sack them if I were him...
Interestingish thread. There's more to this though than a personality type isn't there? There's interesting evidence that, particularly for sport, there's a large element to do with thinking about something instead of simply trusting to all that training and just doing it. Adepts don't consciously think about an action as it's ingrained - they just do it. Once someone starts consciously thinking about, say, their golf swing (explicit monitoring) when the pressure's on,...
Ahhh. I'll fetch my coat....
Famous picture. Incredible eyes.   Harsh. How about trying to picture the same face with all the advantages of Western makeup, peace, fashion, money etc etc? I have no trouble seeing that girl as attractive.
Tend to agree re. irons. A mis-hit is a mis-hit is a mis-hit and all the (legal) technology in the World isn't going make it that much better. Golf OEMs need us to buy stuff and we're, in general, suckers for believing newer == better when, in all reality, it's often not.   Current drivers are definitely better than those from even 10 years back but I'm not sure if we aren't near the apex of actual gains. They can offer them in different paint jobs, user-customisable or...
If his body holds up and if he can hit a driver that has half a chance of being in the right fairway when he needs to, I think he might win a regular event somewhere. Majors? Not the first year back. Wouldn't be at all surprised if he wins chuff all.
See below. Not sure how they'd come to such a conclusion at JFK simply based on someone vomiting. Must have been something else to lead them to conclude it wasn't ebola.   Ha! Very good but sadly I think there are some who actually do believe this.
Not sure about this as it's a zoonotic (i.e. crossed species boundary) infection. In its natural host I'm sure it does as you suggest - in us, it basically just goes crazy. Unlikely it evolved with us as part of the equation although that's not to suggest that something funky won't/doesn't happen when it gets into a human pool for a bit. Who really knows though? It's that bad that not enough people have studied it.
Current outbreak is about 70% mortality although I'm sure that would drop in any country with a good health service.
Er, no. If you're in contact with infected saliva, blood etc from an ebola carrier, all you need is ~10 virions to contract the disease. Why do you think it's currently spreading like a wildfire in western Africa? HIV took decades to go as far as ebola has gone in the last few months.As for the last sentence there, what I think you mean is that, of those scores in contact with Duncan, no-one is known to have contracted it yet. Hopefully, this is all just more unnecessary...
