      Is it a big deal to drive on the motorway as a learner? (driving accompanied)

        Just the M50. It's a complete bollix to get to the other side of Dublin without it. I do understand the rule on motorways exists, but wonder if the M50 might be viewed more as a 'regular Dublin road' rather than a motorway. If you get me....

          Brother just committed his iron-man down in Italy. 10:52 hours of what sounds like complete agony.

            Of all the motorways, the M50 is the last one I'd use as a learner. Accompanied or not. Its mayhem even for experienced drivers. And if you have any kind of collision/incident (over 1200 a year on the M50) you're fucked as a learner.

            The slow pace of cross city traffic is grand to learn in instead of a 3 lane motorway.

              Ah fuck. Okay, thanks. I'm registered in a DIY course in Hartstown that's going to be a bollix to get to on a Monday evening in that case.

                You can't drive on motorways as a learner without a qualified driving instructor. Accompanied by a qualified driver won't wash if you're stopped or God forbid have an accident. Your insurance would be void to add to the pain.

                  You definitely have

                  I'm actually in the middle of my first re-watch of The Shield, originally devoured it on DVD a few years after it aired. Still awesome.

                    Depends on what time of evening obvs but I just popped it into maps from your place to Hartstown using the M50 and avoiding it and times were 32mins and 47mins so that's not any kind of difference really.

                    And because you'll be accompanied, you've got 100% peace of mind avoiding the motorway.

                        Great doc here about a man and his 27 year journey to build the world's best hi-fi system. If you've any interest at all in engineering, technology or just people with astounding passion and obsession this will boggle and satisfy!

                        The detail he went into is truly staggering. He built much of it - speakers, turntable, the room with no flat surfaces - himself and one wonders what other prices he paid other than the huge financial cost.

                        He also has 35,000 records, mostly classical by the looks of it, and admits he'll never hear the vast majority of them. He built his own turntable and its weighs about a quarter of a ton.

                        Teasingly, we never get to hear the system or watch him enjoy it.

                        I'd happily pay a decent chunk just to spend one hour listening to it.

                                Call bullshit. In actuality that's exactly what is being said. Except everyone is sure to add in, oh well, of course you should have a choice. Of course.

                                Just not to keep your job, or provide for yourself or your family. And whatever worse is to come.

                                At least have the balls to say yeah sure I think Unvaxxed, should be rounded up. Forcefully vaxed. Or reeducated. Or whatever fucking bullshit has been spouted throughout history when one group of humans pathologically decide to hate another.

                                      Crazy one in the T20 final, two fielders Bell Drummond and Cox coming in to try take a catch on a ball a meter from the boundary, neither of them are calling that they have it, Bell Drummond sees Cox has it and tries to get out of the way but slides into Cox who has made a clean catch and the boundary at the same time. TV review and it's called a 6. Batsman puts it up in the air again next delivery and Cox catches it this time.

                                                Well, also according to my reliable sauces (hat tip to Ratso from the Kinky Friedman books), she's extremely well set financially so not a concern.

                                                  Not in the Chinese camp sense though. More the reason and logic one, although I suspect it might be too late for that.

                                                    Well she wasn't teaching anymore. So there was minimal mould at play. But I'd be nearly sure she was just offered early retirement? Which seems like a net win for her.

                                                    Something must have happened to her along the way. She was top top top potential back in the day and then it all went pete tong.

                                                            But it can be done, after a fairly tortuous process.

I would say if you're finding city driving harrowing, really and truly avoid the m50. Its harrowing, but at speed!

Where is the line in the sand and who should decide where that line goes ? There simply has to be a line though . Right ?

For some reason had a bottle of wine for breakfast yesterday, which lead to the purchase of a bottle of vodka in the afternoon. So was well into that, and watching the first matrix movie, as you would on a Saturday afternoon. The Nokia product placement in the film inspired me to fire up an old phone and drunk dial some people. Probably best to wait till I'm sober to apologise to the poor girl who answered.

                                                                                                You would assume a lot of those are now busily arranging vaccinations.
                                                                                                So you are all for choice. All for freedom of what goes into your body. What is your opinion on this and the numerous other cases of the same.

                                                                                                it is happening all over. The doctor who treated me, didnt want it, as she had a thyroid condition and had seen some adverse reactions with regard this a few months post vaccine. She got the letter threatening her suspension without pay. Single.mother with family. Took it. Said within weeks, her thyroid no longer functions whatsoever.

                                                                                                Do you believe pharma has your best interest at heart with regard your health.
                                                                                                Do you think government has your best interest at heart with regard your health.

Three days after the vaccine my wife was in hospital with a blood clot in the leg. The pharmacy her own doctor the hospital said it was a reaction from the vaccine. She’s 40 one of those lucky 1/180 million or Else the figures are wrong.

I dont eat meat. I dont eat refined sugar. I dont est processes food. I do not want this. I'll take my chances.

I assume you missed it in the overnight phase, I don’t think you were intentionally dodgy it Sam. But I’m still really curious as to where it has come from.

                                                                                                              It now seems to have turned into some conspiracy where governments are spiking the vaccination percentages.

                                                                                                                I dont gorge on digital. First I have heard of it even being a thing. Only my own experential sense of it. Obv this is skewed by randomness as my circle is people, self employed, dont do business with government typea, yogis, hippy type, meditation people. Brassers. Punters. But close to no-one I even randomly chat to while having pints (I.mean randomers), are vaxxed.

                                                                                                                I would be astonished, utterly astonished if in time it isnt revealed that these numbers are returned to us as not what was initially given. Obv this will be dressed up in appropriate, semantic langauge, politically astute enough to not expose as it being an outright lie.

                                                                                                                90% adults in Ireland. Not a fucking hope. So yeah bb thread, sure , 90% for sure. Working class, and the underclass. Nope. Just is not true.

                                                                                                                I get it. We are in a vaccine drive. 90% vaxxed oh man im.a dummy I better get it too. Makes sense.

                                                                                                                But is it true. not a chance. Call.

That will almost certainly save lives. So whatever subtle skewage needs to be presented to help up the numbers is done. Honestly its prob not even a bad thing. No doctor evils. No cartel of villains in a dark room. Just a virus. And then the opportunism of economics.

The fucking thousands of nurses and DRs administering vaccines daily? The civil service members processing information? The DBAs writing Stored Procs to access the data to make sure people aren't getting missed out?

                                                                                                                          "Not a conspiracy" but would require hundreds of people to be involved in order to do it, also fully knowing that nothing in Ireland stays secret for long, so when indeed "the tRuTh" comes out, you've undermined any and all future public health efforts. It is the very definition of a conspiracy theory.
