    If Yorkshire were a country it would be tenth in the medal table with five golds, the same as Germany and ahead of Holland. No doubt SAS would explain it as Yorkshire folk having better genes.

    I blame Thatcher shutting down the coalmines.

    My Bro Tweeted me that Bolton (our home town) has produced more Gold Medals than India, Spain and some other shiit country put together...

    Can Mod's amend the thread title to give it its full name, God's Own Republic Of Yorkshire
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    It's because the flout the drug rules by their own special Yorkshire methods.

    They avoid drug test detection by injecting ecstacy directly into the skin around the teeth.

    This is known locally as 'E By Gum'

    Its because they are desperate to get out of Yorkshire. Great motivation.

    Science isn't about why, it's about why not. You ask: why is so much of our science dangerous? I say: why not marry safe science if you love it so much. In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired. - Cave Johnson

    Eh? When have I ever seriously subscribed to the genetic superiority theory?
    I think it's because the lazy twats don't have any jobs allowing them to take t'lottery cash for training in their vast spare time, innit?

    It's due to our genetic superiority of course from generations of fighting the vikings and hurdling dry stone walls for training.
