      Tucker Carlson is some kind of cretin. He is however the voice of millions . Probably will express Sympathy to Putin at the death of his fellow countryman in Prison.

        Can’t believe there’s people out there who go think it’s worth shelling out 330 euro to watch a 76 year old with a fucked voice from a long past it band from the other end of a football pitch
        Will you ever fuck off with that shite... you are easily one of the worst posters on here for this-Pokerhand

          I'm somewhat disappointed that Taylor Swift is too young to run for President. Suppose she has better things going on, though 2028 will be when it becomes an option.
          Gone full 'Glinner' since June 2022.

            I've seen AC/DC four times. Been a lifelong fan, since 1979 when I first head the If You Want Blood.. album.

            I have/had a decent record collection including an original of a rare 1977 radio promo (sold that a couple of years ago).

            I even have a tattoo which I got in Australia 20 years ago.

            Anyway, three times I saw them they were rad (1988 - skipped school to travel to Birmingham as a 16-y-o, 1991 or so and probably around 2000 - each time only with about 9,999 other people).

            One time very disappointing (last time in Landsdowne Road maybe 10 years ago) with about 40 or 50K people.

            Only one original member left now so I deffo wasn't going to bother this time.

            Then 8-year old HiFi junior pipes up twice in the last week 'can we go and see AC/DC dad?' having heard the ads on the radio.

            Hmmm. I figured if we got a seat so he could sit (or stand on it) and see the screens at least then that would be a pretty rad first gig for him to see that he'd remember for he rest of his life.

            He doesn't have anything to compare it to. Doesn't know its hardly anyone left form the original band, or what is good or bad in this world in terms of sound .

            I'm pretty sure that would be a memorable spectacle for a wee fella hanging out with his da.

            But I was in meetings all morning so couldn't get tickets and now I'm bummed.

            I'm sure I'll find a way to procure tickets but its not the end of the world if I don't... so yes, in a way you're right.

            In another way, completely wrong.

                It’s not sold out they will eventually be back on sale at normal price( which is still 140 or 150 I think
                base price for davin was 160
                good old dynamic pricing

                dunno there is definitely limits to what it’s worth- nostalgia is a hell of a drug

                  WOD are doing a few UK & Europe dates this Summer. Nothing announced yet for Dublin. Gimme a shout if you see one announced, I'll do likewise.

                    Saw that will do- meant to stick it up here- heading to one of the London gigs
                    would go here too if they come but I guess they’ve been here last 2 years so prob less likely on the other hand def space on the schedule for them to add more- lots of big gigs on this summer so people have already laid out a lot of cash they might leave it
                    pearl jam next up on the fan gouging carousel next week

                      There tends be a big % of people who don't go to gigs for the show, and that tends to increase with the size of the venue. People want a day out I guess. Even MCD sell tickets now at the very back of places like Marlay Park and Malahide, for the people that pay 100 beans to go to a chip van and drink plastic pints in a
                      crowd.

                        For nostalgic reasons im off to Croatia to see the Boomtown Rats end of April. Using it as an excuse for a weekend too. For musical reasons went to Scotland recently , great weekend . Music is a great excuse to add a bit of colour to your life. AN acdc gig is an experience. The crowd are usually as entertaining as the gig itself. Money is just rent for living, spend it the fk.

                                  As the lady said let’s move forward remember all the hurt but don’t bring it up all the time
                                  The world has seen enough hurt and is currently seeing a load more
                                  we have to move forward no matter who or what is in power

                                  Get behind the movement going forward and give the next generation a chance to not be reminded of all the negative things that happened

                                    Was hoping for good things from Kickys with its ex Chapter One team, but was not great imo. Some very weird flavours that just didn't work - including the inclusion of yeast in a sauce that accompanied some nice brill fillets. WTF are you thinking there chef? Also my bacon chop was almost dessert levels of sweetness and just plain odd.

                                      That's not a particularly high bar to surpass.

                                      What's the parking situation there?

                                            Yeah, we were surprised too. Maybe just a bad night.

                                            They could do with one or two more choices on the menu as well. It's three per course which doesn't give you a lot of oprions.

                                              Think there is free parking at the church next to the place.... Well you have to pay it, but think the DPC refund the cost. There is also parking in the estate around it if you know where to look

                                                          Any bigger cash games? Would love if somewhere would run a 5/10 NLH game once a week. Or even 2/5.

                                                            SF/IRA in power in both jurisdictions is a guarantee that the circumstances will arise again as they try to shove their vision of Ooh Aah Up the RA republicanism down the throats of a million British people in the North!
                                                            They have no more ability to push their brand of sectarianism, than the Unionists have had for 25 years. And still have in fact. SF are not actually in power, it’s a power share. They don’t have a majority in the executive, it’s pitiful 27 seats out of 77. And 34 seats “in power” are Unionist.

                                                            It’s no more unfair on people identifying as British, than it always has been for the Irish in NI.

                                                                  The ongoing debate around whether it has some kind of internal physics model is fascinating. Friedberg on the All In pod seemed to side with the people saying that it has learned a basic physics model of our world. This guy works at Google's DeepMind and has lectured at Oxford for over a decade in AI/ML so should know a little about what he is talking about.

                                                                  The only way a *finite sized* neural net can predict what will happen in any situation is by learning internal models that facilitate such predictions, including intuitive laws of physics. Given this intuition, I cannot find any reason to justify disagreeing with @DrJimFan. With more data of high quality, electricity, feedback (aka fine tuning, grounding), and parallel neural net models that can efficiently absorb data to reduce entropy, we will likely have machines that reason about physics better than humans, and hopefully teach us new things.​

Conor the owner is top class and a great atmosphere there. Stayed in a bnb 2km out the road for €100, landlady said she'd do it cheaper if booked direct with her. Would happily recommend it for anyone looking to venture to a new spot once in a while. Cash game rake is 5% capped at €8. And had a lively 1/2/5 NLH and a big round of each going.

They are pretty hysterical about the impacts. The strange thing is that the technology has come for creative jobs far quicker than some of the areas we thought it would proliferate though first. I think this is the tip of the iceberg of what is coming. What do you want to do? Stop progress? This isn't anything new, technology has automated away jobs for decades.

                                                                                        Most people probably think AI is decades away from automating them because they look at the current iterations of AI in whatever job they do coupled with being used to seeing linear progress which tells them we are nowhere near close to replacing them. The truth is if you look at where AI video was a year ago and what it is now, these are step function gains that seem to come literally overnight and that will happen in all areas of the economy.

                                                                                        Sam Altman himself is screaming this stuff in interviews and telling governments they need to start preparing for what is coming.

Most of the people doing the grunt in video production work long hours for low pay. This is more like the final nail, than a crazy shock.

                                                                                              The research page is probably at the more interesting end of things from a larger perspective to humanity. The ongoing debate that I posted above around whether we should be capable of doing these sorts of things with current compute capacity or has the machine come up with new ways of doing things that we hadn't considered to allow that to happen, that is exciting.

                                                                                              we will likely have machines that reason about physics better than humans, and hopefully teach us new things.​

They show examples of it creating Minecraft world on the go while moving about in them. (Eh, this raise questions about the nature of reality but lets leave that one alone)

Sora can simultaneously control the player in Minecraft with a basic policy while also rendering the world and its dynamics in high fidelity. These capabilities can be elicited zero-shot by prompting Sora with captions mentioning “Minecraft.”​

                                                                                              I am probably scratching the surface with my very limited understanding of this area. The point is this is something they have created which happens to be along the road to far bigger things. That leads to advances in human knowledge, understanding and innovation in a vast array of different areas.

                                                                                                              Kicky's - Somewhat torn by this one. I am a huge fan of the head chef/owner but I didn't love it. Nothing was really wrong (although Mrs Lao Lao felt everything was too salty) but I just wasn't blown away by it. The portion sizes were huge and I left feeling completely over full which isn't a nice feeling. Yes, of course I could have not eaten everything but who does that! I would go back as it is still early days for the restaurant so there is room for them to improve over time.

                                                                                                              Host - Top notch. It's pretty much on the same price point as Kicky's but the food was much nicer/fresher/lighter and the overall experience just seemed nicer, albeit, they are doing it for years and have it down dead pat at this stage.

                                                                                                              L'Gueuleton - This isn't going to blow your socks off and the menu is relatively small but what they do, they do reasonably well and the price point is easy on the wallet. They also have a small but fairly decent wine list.

                                                                                                              Lottie's - Sunday brunch and they are doing BYOB (between 1pm and 4pm) for only 10 quid corkage. Food was lovely and decent value @ 25 quid a main with options of pork, beef, fish or veggie (veggie option was cheaper) We had a few snacks, two mains, a side (which wasn't actually needed) and were full not to want desert so just had a truffle each. Total including tip and corkage was 90 quid. Also found a 2013 Meerlust in the cellar (aka under the stairs) when moving. I thought I'd drank the last one so that washed down lunch very nicely. Was a very nice way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon and was great value.

We do not need these types shaping the offerings to the hungry men . I'm fed up hitting burger king 2 hours after a meal out.

Blue Cheese - if you like this I question your post covid taste buds . How is it made? Do they dip it in cow dung for flavour.

                                                                                                                        Presume it's to encourage people to go out for a Sunday lunch at a cheaper price point. Cost of bottle of wine from the offie + 10 euro is generally cheaper than cost of same bottle in a restaurant due to the mark up plus a lot of people would already have wine on hand so the cost of it is a sunken cost so you judge it based on the tenner alone which is great value.

                                                                                                                        They don't offer BYOB for their regular dinner service, it's only between 1pm and 4pm on a Sunday

                                                                                                                          I'm not against hearty portions and I'm certainly no slim Jim. But on this occasion, there was too much food. Normally, I never let food win, but it was all very rich when combined with large portions makes you waddle out the door and feel very uncomfortable
