iBet: Back England to win the Six Nations

2011 Six Nations
Back England to win the tournament at 2-1
0.5 pts
Although I fancy England to get their RBS Six Nations campaign off to a great start by beating Wales tonight, I can’t quite justify backing them at the generally available 5/6 giving up a three point start. England do seem far more settled and appear [...]

Was Mona Lisa a man?, Eagle Eye

Was Mona Lisa a man?

Number 497 in my inexhaustible series of Questions to Which the Answer is No is asked by the Daily Mail:
Was da Vinci’s young male apprentice the model for that famous enigmatic smile?
