    This Brexit bonus never occurred to me and I've seen no coverage in the media
    but Duty Free is back for journeys to UK.

        Ah man, I really think your read of that is off. GAB was clearly having a laugh no?

        Akin to the whole GFY thing I would have thought.

            Well, that was wonderful. Nearly didn't make it in as was stuck on the luas for a while due to protests in O'Connell st. Was a bit surprised at nearly everyone taking their masks off, despite the place being totally packed. It was a bit reassuring that they were unusually strict about the covid certs (they scanned them, and also checked other id to make sure it was yours).
            The show itself was so well done. Think the chap playing Rocky was chosen more for his body than his singing ability, but that was entertaining in it's own way

                  Now off to umpire a game for the first time in 19 months, at a level far higher than I normally do. Hope the rules haven't changed too much.

                        That's simultaneously a genius business idea and everything that's wrong with the world. Gloriously evil.

                          Humour delivers the truth.

                          GAB is exactly right. The internet was losing its shit at the time over a kip aka the GBS which is now gone -so what. Much nicer places to visit. Who do you believe should fund these 'cultural places' to enable them to stay open? Public donations? Fat chance if the public wont even visit in required numbers? The Government? How do they prioritise shithole A over shitholeB over the rare genuine that deserves conservation? Private donors? Roll up, roll up to preserve a kip of a pub in a kip of an area that relatively few people go to -yeah sure. Good luck with that

                                Poor. Really poor. Like, 1.5 out of 10 for that attempt at trolling and that's being quite generous.

                                You need to put in a lot more effort and try harder next time.

                                  Hate this new trend of successful clearly okay celebrities diagnosing with autism. Seems deeply insulting to parents with kids with real autism and those awful struggles they have, and then you, who is obviously not suffering from serious behavioural issues tries to claim some of that space.

                                      Did she seem like she was suffering from a debilitating behavioural illness at the time?

                                              Ate there last night, it’s a class set up. I also enjoy that despite having a relatively wide knowledge of food there is always at least two things in their menu I’d never heard of before!

Im nostalgic for the days when you let the dog out in the morning and he fucked off for the day occasionally returning for some food or a snooze with a cut on his ear and the slight swagger of a returning champion.

                                                      Fair enough, just seems strange that you are still talking about who should fund them and how not enough people visit them. I already mentioned in a previous reply to you that neither the The Cobblestone nor JJ's needed funding. They are/were very popular places that were ongoing viable concerns. The GBS was the exact same. The only reason they closed was because a developer bought the building and turfed them out. There is a pattern here.

                                                        There was some much bigger US and a UK celebrity who announced it recently, similarly dubiously, given they can clearly live a full life. It just fit their agenda.

                                                          Maybe it's common enough for adults to discover they're autistic. You're obv trolling a little with the debilitating illness thing, even the dumbest of us know there's a spectrum.

                                                          I've a friend, diagnosed as an adult who's flying Russian oligarchs around Europe.

                                                              Had a nice interaction in the shop today (me with my busted back). Theres s kid (I say kid he could be anywhere between 15 and 19) who's a regular in the shop and obviously on the spectrum. Like he shouted in the door one day asking do we do trade ins on dolls holding up a figurine of some sort!

                                                              He was in today and bought the papers for his dad but kept asking me how much they were before I'd scanned. He had a tenner so I think he was anticipating a treat with the €2 change.
                                                              Gets the change and is immediately scanning the sweets asking what can I get for €2
                                                              I'm offering Maoms or Tangfastics etc x 2 and he abruptly goes "I'll ask Dad" and then "I'll be back"
                                                              He then pauses as if something just occured to him and goes in a passable Arnie imitation "I'll BE BACK"
                                                              I genuinely burst out laughing and he kind of sniggered at his joke and off to Dad.

                                                              My favourite customer of the day!!

                                                                This is my point really. There is autism and autism spectrum. Should someone with autism spectrum who can clearly live a grand life be taking up public discussion around proper debilitating autism - and lessening the discussion of what autism is.
                                                                ​​​

Coming around the M50 roundabout at Ballyer An old dear tales a left against the traffic straight ahead of me. Luckily I somehow noticed her turning and had hazards on and stopped in time. Strange that a big copper van was right behind her and parked sideways across the traffic to prevent carnage . . Then told the startled woman how to go around it correctly. Surreal considering I was just 3 mins earlier talking about those tallaght crims who got creamed recently.

                                                                                He texted a woman that works with us one night 'Hi Martina, I think when I was giving you a hug goodbye today I may have rubbed off your breasts. I'm very sorry about that'

                                                                                Followed it up 5 mins later with 'But they are very big'

                                                                                She loved the craic of it in fairness.

                                                                                Opened the pic and it was Ronald McDonald

I used to get a terrible slagging for saying similar things in the 'canteen' when I was working as a labourer on both the Square and Blanch Shopping Centres. Jebus I must have been 25 years old on that last one.

                                                                                              Just a small post to let any IPB members know that my brother Keith passed away last Sunday. His funeral was yesterday and it was a wonderful celebration of his life.

                                                                                              Keith had not been active on the poker scene for a while but I know a lot of members here knew Keith when he was active in the poker community.

                                                                                              Say a prayer for him & think of him. He leaves a huge hole in our lives.

                                                                                                Just a small post to let any IPB members know that my brother Keith passed away last Sunday. His funeral was yesterday and it was a wonderful celebration of his life.

                                                                                                Keith had not been active on the poker scene for a while but I know a lot of members here knew Keith when he was active in the poker community.

                                                                                                Say a prayer for him & think of him. He leaves a huge hole in our lives.

Telling I guess, he had to explain himself to the trans bathroom bill whooper. Talk shit, attract flies.

I wouldn't watch a Jim Jefferies show, because I think he's an unfunny drunken lout. I wouldn't want to deprive the people who do find him entertaining their fun though.

                                                                                                            You're a very intelligent, capable poster and quite frankly your post does disservice to you as a person. It's a cheap shot, immature post, looking for likes and I know (from meetimg you in real life) that you are above that, so maybe get a grip?
                                                                                                            There wasn't one ounce of snideness intended in my comment. However, I think I said as much as anyone else if not more in a far more succinct way with my comment. What we witnessed pre/post the GBS episode shows us how these situations play out.

The GBS was an important cultural institution for a segment of Dublin of which you aren't part - how exactly do you expect you to see the negative effects of it being closed?

I'll admit I had a few beers on me when I read it and that combined with being quite passionate about the whole issue would have coloured my reading of your post. When I read my reply back on Saturday morning, I did question myself whether I was too OTT. Genuine apologies that I took it up the wrong way.

                                                                                                                I do disagree about the pre/post situation of the GBS, but think that is more about the circles we operate in which is understandable.

                                                                                                                Would still enjoy a chat about your opinions on it over a glass of vino or seven.

People found out and it become successful rents went up. Now it's a crappy mess of nightclub and the demographics have changed radically in a few years.
                                                                                                                  that's how cities evolve.

And it doesn't come close to making it a cultural shibboleth.
