Shotputters make better beer drinkers 

Maybe this is the sport for me.

The big spinning men who spend four years perfecting the art of balancing big steel balls between their chin and hand and throwing them as far as they can must love drinking beer. They all look - every one of them from Norway to Germany to Latvia - like perfect cuts of beef, but with big guts. Does the lager provide the sugar for a faster spin? Or does a belly give you more momentum? If Michael Phelps eats 12,000 calories a day how much do these guys put away?

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
