    Its being presented there as if it was there was definite evidence that it came from that particular lab, there isn't.

    While the origin of the virus remains an interesting interesting question at the time it was a highly politicised question that was utterly irrelevant and threatened to derail the critical the job at hand.

    A great way to get your missus to agree to your next telly being a 65" one is to go on and on about how deadly the 85" one you saw in Harvey Norman was.

    Madness Ted. It's like people lost all ability to make their own decisions during covid.
    Would it have been possible to go outside and call them to make a booking?

    Us blokes love the little wins merely for the slagging Lao Lao . Tis gas all right . Whereas if it were wimmin they'd be . Oh no Shiela you must have been so upset at the undeserved red card. Whilst secretly shrieking in delight.

    Another liverpool fan i know thinks Carragher is a traitor as he is buddies with Neville .

    Whilst wimmin are the fairer sex i must say men makes me laugh more due to the big child in us lurking just under the skin.. i myself lost the rag verbally over boy bands discussion one night years ago . Cringey looking back but im sure i took the bait to the amusement of others that night lesson learned .

    In a somewhat similar situation. We've done FF for years now and my best mate has won it probably 8 out 10 times. He spends a redonk amount of time on it every week, insane amount of time, whereas I usually have missed at least 4 transfer deadlines by Christmas and then just give up.

    However, this year, I'm paying a bit of attention, nothing major - I wouldn't spend any more than two hours a week on it - just real basic analysis and it's paying off. I'm top of the league and it is KILLING my mate. Last week, he captioned Ronaldo and I went with Bruno . This week he went with Dennis

    I have so say, the pleasure I'm getting from winding him up>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>> than the pleasure I'm getting from being top of the table for so long.


    Conversation from last night

    Me (already knowing the answer) : What happens if your captain gets sent off in a double game week?

    Him : Minus 1 point and misses next game

    Me : How much of a cunt does it make me if I'm sitting here drinking wine, chuckling away to myself at this

    Him : I can't see how you can be any more of a cunt than your usual default cunt status. Cunt.

He doesn't like eating out for the sake of it, so it would need to be some substantial reason. Like the 'best' Irish thing. The 'most' Irish thing. Something like that, if you get me? Where would that be? A Bunratty Castle feast of Dublin, if you will. But decent quality also.


    Edit: nevermind, answered my own question. Booked the Johnnie Foxes hooley night for the Saturday.

    I think they have enough reassurance that its over. Tony has been quite conservative throughout this thing, which is great imo, compared to the frenetic decision changes of the UK. So, he is looking at this data and sees quite clearly we're done. I think we take it as pure good news. People we trust, broadly, have said its good to go back to normal again.

    Project manager of the winning team absolutely knocked it out of the park. Sold piss in a bottle through concentrating on creating a great brand. And he was absolutely spot on. The task wasn't to create a drink that will sell in ten years time, it was to create something that stores will trial. Has to be the brand every day of the week. Even got Sugar to compliment the digital marketing, in possibly his first ever compliment.

    Think we peaked at about 27k cases about 2 weeks ago and barley went over 100 in ICU. It's all over bar the shouting with Omicron.

    Cases dropping by a thousand or 2 a day. 11k today I think and didnt see the ICU numbers but would guess about 90ish. But compared to when we were getting 2k cases and 200 in ICU we are in a hell of a lot better position.

    Open it up.

    Cnut of a thing: caused me to think I was for the box on a flight to NY a few years ago. Straight off the plane and onto an ambulance whizzed to Jamaica Hospital in Queens. In my c.18 hours there was completely drugged up but remember some sights like a bullet wounded black guy so big his knees were over the end of the stretcher that he was being wheeled in on and handcuffed to and detective beside him. I remember saying to herself 'well you wanted to experience the real NY' and getting a pretty tasty reply. Released with a bag of powerful medicine, slept for a day and then had a ball/

    Last couple of days there have been a couple of funny stories about the insanity of just how crap tabloid ...can you even call it reporting has become from the bizarre defence of Johnson

    FJiegtXXsAEON79?format=png&name=900x900.png

    to trawling twitter for crappy jokes and calling them exclusives

    ?s=20


    The po-faced sobriety of the IT's reporting of what has to be the most hilarious bizarre story of recent years is probably more surreal than either of those.

    https://www.irishtimes.com/news/irel...sion-1.4782598

    SPOILER
    Gardaí are investigating the death of an elderly man in Co Carlow, whose body was brought into a post office by two other men, in what appeared to be an attempt to claim the deceased’s man’s pension.

    Initial reports indicate the body of the deceased was brought into the post office, which is located on Staplestown Road in Carlow town, propped up by two men.

    It appeared the pair were attempting to collect the man’s pension, the source said. The body of the deceased was then left at the scene, when the two men fled after suspicions were raised.

    A Garda spokesman confirmed gardaí were investigating “all the circumstances surrounding the unexplained death of an elderly male in the Carlow area”.

    The spokesman said the services of the Garda technical bureau had been requested, and a post-mortem examination would be conducted by the Office of the State Pathologist. The results of the post-mortem would help determine the course of the investigation, the spokesman said.

    The spokesman said the Garda Press Office could not provide further details.

    It is understood when the group approached the post office counter, a concerned staff member enquired about the wellbeing of the man being propped up, at which point the two men dropped the man and left the post office, according to one source familiar with the incident. Staff then went to check on the man, and discovered he was deceased, to the shock of those at the scene, the source said.

    A woman working in a beauty and nail salon across the road from the post office described the incident as “unbelievable”.

    She was alerted to the commotion after seeing an ambulance and Garda cars outside the small post office, shortly before noon on Friday, she said. “It’s all anyone has been talking about … it is unbelievable,” she told The Irish Times.

    The main focus of Garda inquiries at present is to try to identify the cause of the death of the man, with examinations also expected to give an estimate of around what time he died, Garda sources said.


    The tabloids will have some sport with that on, rumor has it was a couple of junkies who are related to the deceased pensioner WTAF
