    Creative rhyming indeed, IPB
    Understand though the tickets for me
    No insult did ye omit
    Though most did surely befit
    Suck on that, ye bags of gee ​

      I'm sure this is a question IPB can save me some time researching:

      Best/highly recommended electronic share trading app?

      For, let's say initially, 10K across 10 shares (circa 1K each). Long term strategy but if I needed to access it I'd want it to be able to cash in quickly.

      Deffo not regular trading, just ease of use and some good, independent investment coverage)

      Criteria:
      Security
      Ease of money in and out (and setting up account - but that's all the same docs these days anyway so likely not a big issue for any of them)
      Credible advice/analysis

      Less interested in fees if the quality is good.


      Cheers in advance - any good links appreciated from anyone who has a bit of experience to give me a running start.

          Speaking of shares, has anyone had experience of trying to cash in current verifone and verizon shares that are the remenants of the eircom privatisation?

                  Is anyone planning on paying their TV licence this year? I don't see why anyone would or should, given everything that has come out. Classic case of insider capture of a state institution.

                    My mother has been paying my TV license as a Xmas gift for a few years now so mine is paid.

                    I assume if you pay and they scrap it, you’ll be reimbursed beyond a certain date. I suspect there will be no material difference in deciding to pay it or not.

                    At this rate, Tubridy will be welcomed back as a national hero for inadvertently exposing the rot.

                    So messy for the likes of Coveney, fish in a barrel for Mary Lou & Pascal.

                        RTE thing is a story largely being pushed by Indo/Mediahuis. What is the Mediahuis angle? I suspect its probably that they are a notoriously right-wing group (like literally publishing the main racist newspaper in the Netherlands), and far right organisations try to undermine national media as a general rule (e.g. Daily Mail vs BBC in the UK; everyone vs NPR in the US).

                          I've been getting my news on it from The Irish Times and, eh, RTE.

                          But nice try.

                            Like if anything screams 'massively corrupt insider self-dealing clusterfuck!!!', it's RTE's own coverage.

                                  I was ~6 months overdue getting reminders when RTE fiasco broke last year. They've ceased chasing me and no intention of following up myself.

                                      Thankfully yes. Impacted emotionally for sure but it happened in a different neighborhood a couple of kilometers away.

                                      Around 30 minutes between the fire starting in an apartment and the first building being completely engulfed in flame. Talk on the ground here is that the building has had a series of electrical faults and the likely cause was a short-circuit somewhere. Of course it had to happen on the first day of the year with really high winds (60kmph) which made the situation much worse and hampered the efforts of the firefighters.

                                      although I’m reluctant to use the word lucky, had it started at 7/8pm instead of 5.30 it would have had a significantly worse outcome in terms of injuries and loss of life. It seems most people were still at work and kids still in school/aftercare when it happened.

                                                    You get some great answers in a class. Was going through services with a class, got to emergency services and why they're important to us. I was writing on the board so had my back to class.

                                                    I said if you get in trouble or need help, who you gonna call. Quick as a flash a guy let rip with Ghost-Busters!

                                                    I turned round laughing, class cracked up, knew straight away who said it by the look on his face and thankfully he laughed when he saw me laughing. He created a great atmosphere for the rest of the class. Fair play to him.

                                                                According to Johnson, the “penis rejuvenation therapy” involves shocking his appendage three times a week, with the objective to increase his nighttime erections from 2 hours and 12 minutes to 3 hours and 30 minutes. The announcement included a diagram in which a block of Swiss cheese transitioned to a cucumber. “[M]ultiple randomized controlled trials showed that shockwave therapy improves erectile dysfunction. We are testing whether it improves total time nighttime erections, subjective sexual performance, sexual satisfaction, and medical imaging-based penile markers,” Johnson wrote on X.

I don't see why anyone would or should, given everything that has come out. Classic case of insider capture of a state institution.

                                                                                                                          Don't even have a TV now.

                                                                                                                          Apparently I am suppposed to submit a form declaring I don't have one to be officially exempt lol (and I'm not certain that it's enough to just not possess a TV, the fact there is the capability with a cable running into the apartment may be enough justification for them to want payment)

                                                                                                                          They can go suck balls to put it mildly
