any celebration is obviously heavily tied to astronomy and agriculture to a decent degree and these things don't feature heavily in your average mordern, urbanite's life.

Re: Cricket: Australia vs India TEST SERIES

the bowling has been good, but the batting has hardly been poor. this implies it is tricky to bat.

if india snag 3 quick wickets anything could happen, but I suspect Australia will just go all T20 on them to try and blast their way to victory.

Re: Tech experts: Do YouTube videos quality decay over time?

It's possible Youtube, or the owner of the video, re-encoded it with more compression at some point. It may be a policy of theirs, a sort of storage saving measure for older videos. The quality wouldn't degrade by itself.
