Just bought it... Jeez how expensive it is... the price increases every edition be it a WC or a Euro... 70c per packet... and 2.00 eur the album

I usually do (we had traded during the WC ;) ), but not going to do so this time around. I'm seeing it as a bit of waste of money and I'm usually not that enthusiastic about the EURO. I'll keep collecting the WC ones though.

you have a valid point and tbh I was not that enthusiastic in fact I've only bought a couple of packets and not the usual box...

When I found out that the box was €70, I decided not to collect it. You'd end up spending over €100 in order to complete the album. Too much.

Does anyone know what "leg" means in football? As in, why the choice of the word "leg" specifically and its history.

Not sure, but the word "leg" used to mean "a part of something" has a history in sports. I used to do athletics and in a relay race, the distance run by a single runner is called a "leg". I believe it's also used in cycling and swimming, and probably in other sports too. In fact, although not so common, "leg" is used for travelling in stage in general. Say you're flying from Malta to Australia; your flight from Malta to Dubai would be the first leg of your journey.

Can't say I know how this meaning started but it seems to be an old one that probably predates its use in football. The earliest example in relation to sports/football given by the Oxford English Dictionary (you made me curious ;) ) is "1899 Sunday Post (Boston) 5 Mar. 19/6 The Hub rollers won the first leg of a series of three matches." So it's actually not limited to just two games.

Legs are separate but connected and work as a unit at some point... sometimes it's just one leg, sometimes more than two... first "stage" of the journey, second "stage" of the journey... "leg" replacing "stage"... which equals one journey... as two legs that are separate but serve to one person. :P

He really didn't do anything special. I could work out almost all of them faster. He beat me in 145 and 162 squared in time though.

All of that is very easy to do. Granted, you wouldn't expect a 5 year old to know how to square big numbers mentally, but props to the teacher for teaching him proper multiplication I guess.

In my opinion he is termed a genius simply because we live in the age of calculators and computer programs. Go back a hundred or so years and probably way more educated people would know how to do all that.

Not entirely true... there were a lot of analphabets but in any case it doesn't imply that they were stupid... every generation adapts to the times that they're living in. In some periods letters and numbers couldn't serve you much or make you a living so... People know as much as they need to know to live in the times that they're living.

Circumstances do not make the man or they do?

I know some people that emigrated in the US and made millions, own buildings and to this day they still don't know to sign their names down.

Don't get me wrong, I don't mean people are more stupid nowadays or anything like that. Society and technologically has changed and therefore the importance of certain skills has reduced. I can't light a fire without technological help, for example - that would have meant instant death many years ago. Similarly with the pervasiveness of technology it's not really a concern that many people can't work these out quickly and mentally.

That has a lot of side effects... especially for mental sanity. Everything we watch leaves a stain in our brain and we're not designed to be passive... we watch action movies sitting or laying in the couch, different signals are sent to the brain while we don't react to any... if you just keep tapping your finger against the table at some X point for several years, a stain will show up and a few years later a hole most likely... that's how the brain works too.
We're designed to react... not just to sit and watch.
