We have a multi-sports thread for that (and other non-Wta sports).

This thread needs a better, more creative name.

I saw Edge of Tomorrow over the weekend and thought it was pretty good. It's sort of an alien invasion combined with Groundhog Day.

Captain Matthew Gideon: I may have an idea.
Dureena Nafeel: I don't think you've recovered from your last good idea.
Captain Matthew Gideon: That would explain it.

Well, what do you suggest? I'm saving my creative impulses for when I'll compose my first symphony or that masterpiece novel that keeps me awake at night.

Re: Off Topic

Answering your question...tough to predict really, I haven't been following much though.
Spain isn't playing half as good as last time and it's difficult to repeat back to back success. Brazil has been flopping for years. Argentina is always a let down and Germany always fails at the last hurdle All that said, I give the edge to Brazil, they did beat Spain comprehensively last time and they have the home advantage but I wouldn't be surprised if we have some random finalist or even winner.

As for names for the thread the only thing I can think of at the moment is "Lounge Area"

Not bad. How about "the parlour of tennis fans" or Caro fans or whatever. Probably a silly name, but since "off topic" isn't silly enough....

As for the football, I have no idea. But it will probably be one of the usual suspects - Brazil (especially since they have home advantage), Argentina, Germany or Spain.

Re: Off Topic

Quite shocked to hear the news about Rick Mayall yesterday. Only 56. It's always bad when you just switch on the radio and hear someone talking about a politician or comedian in the way they were because you just know it's because they have died.

But "The Young Ones" was brilliant and he was the one who made me laugh the most. That series was sooo like the things that went on when I was at Uni.

I just watched it too! Better than I expected it to be.

Oh sure...leave it to the rest of us to come up with a name. Some thread starter you are.

Here's a few ideas I've come up with:

Bruce's brain (Bruce asked me a couple of days before you started this thread to create a new off topic thread)
Life, the universe, and everything
Caro's café (my favorite of these options)
Chit chat corner
The couch

Captain Matthew Gideon: I may have an idea.
Dureena Nafeel: I don't think you've recovered from your last good idea.
Captain Matthew Gideon: That would explain it.

Crusade: The Needs of Earth

Re: Off Topic

Anybody ever go to a sci-fi/fantasy/horror/comic book convention?

Well "Off Tpic" defintely beats "On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen" which sounds very clever, but nobody really knows what that is supposed to be about. I have since considered replacing it with one of my more loony ideas - "Woz maniacs converse" or something, but "Caro's café" sounds fine. Discussing Jennifer Lawrence or whether we prefer one or two lumps of Sugar in our coffee while enjoying a six pack is pretty funky.

I guess I better ask a mod to change the title of this thread then.

Yah, that was a weird, confusing thread name.

Bruce mentioned in his email to me that Burisleif came up with the old name. If he was still around here, we could ask him. It seems like it's been ages since he's been on this forum.

You can change the thread title yourself by going to the first post in the thread and clicking "edit". Then click "go advanced" and go over to the left side of the screen where it says "title". Delete the old title and enter the new one.

That's because "On the Concept of Irony with Continual Reference to Caroline" was never supposed to be an off topic thread… It's was supposed to be a place to discuss Caroline 'off court' and items pertaining to Caroline outside of tennis leaving the main thread for discussion of her tennis. It comes from a famous discussion piece by Kierkegaard titled "On the Concept of Irony with Continual Reference to Socrates".

Caro's Cafe sounds like an ok name fro an off topic thread I suppose…
