    Many of these natural spaces are formed by water over millions of years - liquid or frozen - but of late man has intervened and speeded up the process.

    See what you can do harnessing the power of water by damming - you can use it to drive turbines (water occupies the spaces on one side of a rotor, causing it to spin, rotating a coil inside enormous magnets - or is it the other way around?) and generate electricity.

    The water after it has passed through the turbines can then be used to water crops in fields (another form of space - often dry). You see where this is leading?

    .....colons and watering dry empty spaces.

    The poster is obviously alluding to honi being a fan of colonic irrigation.

    /aren't we all?

    I actually think Lara is a big chance of most runs at the WC. The fact that it is in the WI and it could be his last international cricket will urge him on to some big scores.

    depends on which position he bats at. For me, he should always be no.3 in both tests and ODIs, but he wants to regard himself as a floater, it seems.

    I think Inzy and Lara are both doing the same stupid thing, especially Inzy. They try to demote themselves down the order and in the end it doesn't help the team.
