Unless it's microchipped it is his problem. Bury it. I think you're supposed to put it 1.2m down, but half that is plenty imo.

Modern classic, hugely influencial, people absolutely rave about it.

Didn't think much of it myself! But I would admit it is probably worth a try as I'm the only one who seems to hold this opinion.

The fact that it's kicking about 40 years and has multiple awards is a good sign. I've only ever heard that it's great but haven't read it. I think it created the cyberpunk genre? It won't hold you by the hand, it's high paced confusion. The writer "justified that choice by saying that the rate of new technology, new environments etc. is so high (and ever accelerating) that nobody reads manuals etc. - you just try to run with it and hope to catch up as you go. This is true also with Neuromancer.".

That kind of style reminds me of Gardens of the Moon, where I had no fucking idea what was happening but as you go on in the series and understand more it is amazing.


Choosing a book for my bookclub atm, thinking of something like Sapiens should be a safe bet but dunno.

Yeah. I've read loads of stuff in that genre but missed the classic. Thinking, like your experience, it might seem a bit dull just because so many of the derivative books have taken its ideas and expanded on them.

I found myself lately turning away from qwertee style tshirts as my wardrobe hasn't much changed in style since my mid twenties (graphic tee and shirt). I'm finding myself more and more in an environment where my style of dress is not discouraged but I feel sometimes like I need to prove meself in a meeting full of blazers and suits. I'm already kinda on the back foot not being part of the rugby schools crowd that seems to be ubiquitous in my current arena.
I'm not happy with the fact that I found myself recently admiringly fingering a pair of chinos in M&S and cooing over a nice Oxford shirt.
I'm becoming everything I ever hated

I went to see Pet Sematary tonight so I would advise being careful where you bury it (and not to see the film either).

I apologise for the drop in quality but a possible Tyler Durden sighting last night at College Green around 7:40pm. Was using a being with a child as a cover to cast doubt. But I am on to him. As ever stay frosty Where Was Tyler Durden fans!

I hear you, and respect the move.

Want to do that myself too. It's just very warm here at the moment, and will be getting roasting, so loving them as a summer move. Hoping to use the summer sales to expand the wardrobe into some quality attire. Have one amazing suit and nothing else, so can't do style on one suit.

Yeah scrolled back ten pages to see that! @keane at that point you were 20% through the book and struggling - did you finish it in the end and like it?

Just had a look,Lads those Qwertee t shirts are horrendous. Slogan t shirts are just a bad bad decision, full stop. You would look far more professional wearing a sports jersey, especially something like the beautiful new Paul galvin designed Kerry away jersey , a look equally at home in the boardroom or on an evening of cocktails with a big client

Any type of writing on any clothes is a bad decision.

Don't buy t-shirts with slogans, as a general rule.
