Back at school. myself and some mates knew a guy that really fancied himself as a free kick taker in football (soccer for the Yanks). Anyway, we convinced him that his chances would be better if the air conditions were better - it explained the Latin American surperiority. However, we couldn't do that much at school not having weather control as [art of the comprehensive education system. It was. though. all to do with relativities - not absolutes.

We proposed an alternative. We squirted lighter fuel all over his football and set light to it which would allow it to take advantage of the lighter air inside versus the colder air outside.

Didn't work. But it was fun seeing his ball go up in flames before the plastic covering melted.

Thus is the cheaters' code.
