        I turned it on to see what he looked like . The numbers game baffled me. To get 471 there was a glaringly simple solution. The woman didnt get it and MD got it in a more complicated manner . I had to rewind and go huh?

            Seriously unlucky for mdoug on Countdown. He was holding his own on the letters for most of it and was destroying her on the numbers. She completely luckboxed the last numbers round to keep herself in the game.

            To rack up 77 points against such a champion is an impressive feat.

              Tacos Lupillo in inchicore is looking worth the trip.

              El grito is a good all round Mexican, but there's better tacos to be found, I don't care what HJ or the Mexicans say

                  Win the IPB Cheltenham Tipping Comp and you can buy as much Mexican tacos and crystal meth as your heart desires. Still time for entries (cough, cough sp et al)

                    People have started wearing them in the office, at their desk, walking around, in the bathroom, while collecting and getting their lunch in the office. It's all quite isolating and unnatural.

                    People would rather shock themselves, rather than have an independent thought.

                      I feel like I should have a list of 'movies to watch', if I did have such a thing I think it would currently be:
                      1. Poor Things
                      2. 20 Days in Mariupol
                      3. Maestro
                      4. American Fiction
                      5. Ferrari
                      6. Anatomy of a Fall
                      7. The Zone of Interest
                      8. Past Lives
                      9. May December

                        Anatomy of a Fall seems like a slamdunk based on the usual test of 'did it stay in the cinema long after its regular run' - think they kept a screening of it for a few months after the initial showing.

                        Saw a trailer for a new documentary of Stephen Collins vs Eubank in Milltown that actually looked slightly fascinating despite itself. Like an extended version of Reeling in the Years.

                            New book out today which might interest a few here, called The Trading Game, by Gary Stevenson.

                            Extract from it here - Take it from a former banker: the budget is for ordinary people. The mega-rich look on and laugh | Gary Stevenson | The Guardian

                            Good interview with him below.

                              How did you know it was him though, he is one of identical triplets. I remember on the Drimnagh road when there was a Ladbrokes there. I saw him at the betting counter. Of course I did the whole, Hey Champ, well done on the gold medal (was recent at the time). Thanks but that was the brother . The 3 of them are the image of each other.

                                  This is Ireland , a minority sport with very few playing compared to the countries where the sport is played by millions. . It’s quite an achievement, to me even greater than Indias.
                                  It was against Afghanistan. Who have test status as long as we do. We actually debuted first. They’ve played 5 Test/ODI matches this year, and lost them all.
                                  Ireland and Afghanistan are the bottom two ranked teams. Somebody had to win.

                                  Don’t get me wrong, the first win is an achievement. I just can’t compare a win against the lowest ranked test team, with beating the world number 1 (or maybe 2)

                                          I was somewhat ignoring the referendum. On account of my geographical impediment.
                                          But as I came up here I had a look at the proposed wording. I always try to ignore the commentary until I’ve read the actual amendment. Feel it helps take a critical view of any campaign messaging or whatever.

                                          Constitutionally, a family is recognised as marriage and kids. A yes vote here brings the Irish constitution more in line with euro court of human rights definition of 'family'. This is, to me, not a bad thing.
                                          On the part on bold, is that accurate? Questioning it specifically in relation to the kids. I don’t know it back to front or anything.
                                          But doesn’t it only say “…the institute of marriage, on which family is founded,”? That to me indicates that marriage, and only marriage creates a family.
                                          Does that mean an unmarried couple with a child are not yet a family? Is in retroactively applied if they get married?
                                          What if the father tragically dies in a crash before the wedding? Is the child a permanently isolated?
                                          Does any child ever come into to its parents family? How, as there no marriage?

                                          ok, slightly absurd conclusion there. But that’s what insisting marriage is the foundation of a family means if applied literally. Durable relationships fixes all of that. Seems a no brainier.


                                          On the care side, it removes the wording for care being defined as mother's and its special role in society. The change broadens this scope to include other family member and the idea of care for other family members.
                                          I suspect this side will split people a bit more. But mainly due to the greater ease which it will be misrepresented. Eg presenting is removing women’s rights. When it does nothing if the sort.

                                          I agree with the intent of the original. And it was of its era. A housewife contributed to society. But times have moved on.

                                          Is a husband who stays at home not recognised for his contribution. Seems sexiest.
                                          What about gay marriages? Without a women involved is there no recognition there either? A bit bizarre, anyone can eject to contribute to the home. Whether they work or stay at home. Whether parents or the children.

                                          As currently written, the woman doesn’t even have to contribute. She gives support just by living. Raw deal for the lads.

                                          Right now that’s a clear Yes for me. I’m struggling to see what the issues are. Willing consider other views, of course

                                            Fair enough. I’ll rephrase to a winner is likely to occur.
                                            A draw is increasingly less common in test cricket. Back in the 60s I think it was most common by a wide margin (which would impact the time it takes for a team to meet their first wi n )

                                            I’m gonna have to appeal to the umpire.

                                            I forgot to reply. Then was browsing the bookies see the boys were out against the Afghans in an ODI and it reminded me.

                                              Its kinda glorious that tomorrow Irish people look like they're going to do what Irish people do - and massively overthink things and vote to reaffirm that the woman's place is indeed in the home. The opposition is just bizarre. Things like - I'm a woman and I'm a carer are you saying I'm going to have to leave my disabled kid at home and go work in the mines? like wtf. Its beyond bizarre. It simply removes antiquated language and recognises that caring is carried out in a multitude of ways. The overthinking it is nearly worth it for the global news headlines though.

                                                Was thinking about something you mentioned a while back, I think it was along the lines of 'never invite the taxman in your home'. My pal tried to apply for taxback from not working for a few months and he has just been slapped with an emergency audit. These are risky little games unless you dot every i and cross every t as a livelihood approach.

                                                                      People would rather shock themselves, rather than have an independent thought.

                                                                      walking around with them is mental stuff

Love the peace and quiet! Would wear them more when out and about too but the clowns in Bose seem to have gotten rid of the mode that can handle wind. 45s are unusable outdoors.

                                                                              But doesn’t it only say “…the institute of marriage, on which family is founded,”? That to me indicates that marriage, and only marriage creates a family.

                                                                              ok, slightly absurd conclusion there. But that’s what insisting marriage is the foundation of a family means if applied literally. Durable relationships fixes all of that. Seems a no brainier.
                                                                              Right now that’s a clear Yes for me. I’m struggling to see what the issues are. Willing consider other views, of course
                                                                              I think we are pretty much in agreement

                                                                              Just for clarity, so people know exactly what they are voting for, it's pretty obviously an improvement

                                                                              Article 41.2.1° “In particular, the State recognises that by her life within the home, woman gives
                                                                              to the State a support without which the common good cannot be achieved.”

                                                                              Article 41.2.2° “The State shall, therefore, endeavour to ensure that mothers shall not be

                                                                              The new wording may not go far enough for some but has a definite improvement regard who

                                                                                              Although interestingly the attorney general advice 'leaked' tonight which said - if we change from mothers to carers, i.e. widen the definition of carers, then it could cost the state a fortune in extra obligations. so that dumbass subset of carers that have had a disproportionate influence on swinging the campaign to no have probably done themselves out of income.

                                                                                              I guess 'carers' is a more specific job-oriented term than mothers, hence the extra state obligations.

If the opinion of a long dead corrupt and by all accounts massive prick seem like they should be part of the constitution vote no.

                                                                                                  im sure legal minds have better takes on it.

Earlier I'd been joking with the missus about we need a piss off option. So naturally little boys have ears and Jimi's reply - only if you have a piss off option . Much hilarity ensued.
