              Aeropress, best value piece of kit on the market. You don't bother with anything else for the moment.

              I got grinds off a mathematician guy and I believe he may have given grinds in statistics too.
              I'm not entirely sure but I'll root out his name. He's not cheap, approx 80p/h but he's very good.

              I used here to find him: https://www.firsttutors.com/ireland/

              If you have a sample paper, most will tell you whether they can cover the material.

                  €80p/h?!?

                  I'll do grinds for that. Do you need to be sober?

                    Think it's only the Tropical they have there. Just as good of not better though.

                          Re: Shit eating and drinking:

                          Bought chocolate

                          Didn't like! Aldi chocolate used to be half decent I thought?

                          Bought craft cider... meh, alright but never been big on drinking at home tbh

                          Might go on a clean, odd drink now and again but make some use of the lockdown... seeing as last time I was in a similar situation (when I originally left England) my elbow & shoulder popped and I couldn't do shit

                          Will need a vice mind, for the Sanity Clause... hows the poker going?

                            Now, he was easily the most expensive but when I sent him the exam paper he was the only one of four contacts who would take it on.
                            It was more specialised than it was difficult tbh.

                            I'd say you could do quite well tutoring uni level maths/statistics/physics.

                            Factor the sobriety into the price.

                                    I can't drink red wine anymore. It is driving me nuts. I get some kind of allergic reaction where I start sneezing before finishing the first glass and feel all blocked up shortly after with hangover from hell. Alcohol of all kinds causes varying degrees of severity of the same kind of reaction. Dr. Google suggests histamine intolerance which would tie with that the only alcohol that causes little to no reaction is gin and by far the strongest reaction is red wine. It feels fairly frivolous in the current climate to be making a doctors appointment about my inability to consume alcohol.

                                      Tbf to Sierra Nevada they were one of the pioneers that basically kick started the modern craft beer scene. They are fucking huge now and opened a massive 2nd plant in North Carolina a few years ago. As far as both torpedos go, good examples of a typical American IPA. The tropical one was the go to beer in my local. Have their bigfoot barleywine sitting in the fridge waiting for the weekend.

                                        Yeah, that's a big thing with red wine - the histamine reaction. You can tell its that too, by picking up a box of anti-histamines (no prescription needed) and you'll see it vanishes right away.

                                            Question for the number crunchers on here. Numbers of cases in republic tonight 3849 with 98 deaths. Number in N.I. 774 cases with 36 deaths.

                                            Seems like a lot higher percentage deaths in the North.

                                            Discuss reasons for difference please.

                                                Cetrine, available over the counter will do the trick for this, the auld fellow used to be exactly the same and it stoped it almost immediately.

                                                    Mostly just down to more testing in Ireland.

                                                    If you had accurate numbers for confirmed cases there wouldn't be much of a difference. If there is a difference, it's probably due to more community spread in NI. Which is gonna hit older people more. The initial cases in a country come from younger people travelling. If it spreads to older people the fatality rate goes way up.

                                                                  They also have a flavor called “all dressed” that is delicous.

                                                                  We’ll call it a draw.

                                                                    True. Dill Pickle. Jesus.

                                                                    Man, I actually find the same. Its so hard to get, I think it might be seasonal. I even have the missus asking her suppliers about it.

                                                                      I have found that if their is a filling on the sandwich, perhaps a sauce, spicy or garlic, a ruffled crisps increased surface area captures more of that so hunky dories are my go on addition rather than the conventional tayto.

                                                                        Seems like a lot higher percentage deaths in the North.

                                                                        Discuss reasons for difference please.
                                                                        It's almost certainly a gap in testing. NI likely have more undetected cases than we do. .

                                                                        Additionally we also have the unfortunate issue that are nursing homes have been badly impacted. I'm unsure if that's the case in the North but it's a contributor to our death rate.

                                                                        As an example of how much of a shit show the UK are having
