        Let's say you were in work and needed to have a shit and let's say that this shit was the absolute most foulest shit you've ever had.

        I'm talking the smell is so bad, it is wafting out the toilet door and down the corridor - people's nose hair is starting to burn as they smell it, some people are starting to cough as if they've just inhaled some nefarious white powder that was posted to them as part of a terrorist act.

        Let's say you are this person who had this shit. You are in the cubicle, having just finished your business (there is only one cubicle in the toilet) and just before you are about to leave the cubicle, you hear somebody washing their hands at the sink. Do you

        A) Wait until they leave the toilet as sweet mother of baby Jesus (sorry Kayroo) , you don't want to face anybody after that shit and for them to know that it actually came from inside your body.

        or

        B) Walk out and start to make small talk as if you hadn't just performed a bodily movement akin to the dropping of a nuclear bomb on war torn Japan.

        lol

        Was on a road trip many moons ago and driving in to San Diego (looking to check in) needing to go(at Defcon 2, not quite turtle heading at this stage) Drinking the night before/takeaway food
        One of the lads is a fussy fucker about smells and cleanliness and discounted the first place because it smelled of piss.
        Second place was burnt food smell or some bollox like that.
        Now I'm at Defcon 3 and im "whatever the next place is we are fucking taking it, that's it"
        Im driving too so will have to find parking as were hitting the centre of town.
        So park the car and we hit the lobby of this fairly grand old style hotel, big huge long lobby and I'm wondering will I be able to make it to the desk, check in and make it to the room.
        So were approaching the desk and I see this kid getting sick outside the restaurant.
        See my mate grimacing and rush the last few feet to the desk
        "wheres the bathroom my friends will check in"
        He points back down the lobby so I now have to negotiate a tricky 20 metres, stiff legged, clenching and sweating like Prince Andrew when he heard Ghisaine Maxwell was arrested.
        Make it to the toilet which was basically a cupboard accessing directly on to the lobby.
        Anyway jocks off quicker than Our Conor on the last 2 furlongs of Cheltenham and utter, blissful relief.
        Someone starts pounding on door (I've only just got in) and I'm there "ill be a few minutes"
        More pounding and sort of angry noises "ill be out in a minute ffs" I'm sayin
        Finally finish and open door to be greeted by the security guard desperate to get past me despite his disgust at the stench. I had a big grin on with a "I wouldnt be in a hurry to get in there mate" He actually snarled at me as he barged past.

        The lads were cracking up

        We could smell you from the lobby.
        They went nearer to the smell of the kids vomit to get away from it.

          I'm pretty sure I've had this sausage as a starter in Grano, Stoneybatter. It was in a little terracota dish with a candle heating the base I believe. Awesome kick of heat. Simply delicious some bread and olive oil. Grano is an excellent little restaurant and I can't wait to head back there.

          On the topic of Italian restaurants I was in another great little spot a couple of weeks back that just blew my mind - Sprezzatura just off Camden St. If I'm not mistaken almost all of the staff and kitchen are Brazilian. This takes nothing away from the brilliant pasta which is freshly made each day. The price is outrageously cheap for what you get - the dessert was only €3.50 and total was €50 for two (1x starter, 2x mains, 2x glasses of wine, 2x desserts + tip). Ordering done online via your phone is a big plus for me too. Food was exceptional for that pice point.

              Seems like a bizarre thing to do at that age and I was quite sure the advice would be 'do nothing and it will come out the other end tomorrow' but no, GP was rung and she has to get checked out. Luckily it's Mrs D3's turn for hospital duty.

                      Jaysus lads, ye can flush far earlier in the toilet process, it doesn't have to be the last thing.

                            CC was joking, I hope. There's no way the current numbers are caused by school, it's far too early.

                                      Of course...but there's no doubt the numbers will rise in a week or two because parents are too liberal to lock their kids in the cupboard during office hours.

                                                        Ha ha that's it

                                                        Was in Frsnce last summer. Nice meal al Fresco and of course only 1 tiny little broom closet Jax. Plumbing about 50 years old with a complicated but delicate looking flush system which I managed to break. Was only a piss but I was frantically trying to fix the fucking thing as could hear people waiing outside. Eventually just said sod it and left. Slight shrug of the shoulders and gesturing back towards the toilet in a nonchalant "cest pas mon affaire" type way.

                                                        Always getting in to these "uh oh" type situations.
                                                        I'll be opening a door in a hotel and a doorhandle will come off in my hand or stuff like that. "Thars ok sir happens all the time"

                                                          No can't recommend anything.

                                                          I was interested to see how difficult the programming is involved behind it all as the market is only going to continue to grow. Like the early days of mobile apps, if you can create simple good ideas with mass appeal it could be very lucrative but I decided to play the pokers instead last month. Bad decision

                                                          That kind of programming is hard though. Mainly down to the math and physics involved in the worlds. I did some very simple augmented reality stuff before and even that was difficult. Although I was working in a very low-level library whereas if you use some kind of engine like Unity I presume it abstracts much of that stuff away from you but never used it. I see Unity recently moved an office to Dublin.

                                                          Some guy stuck up a post on Reddit with a tutorial to do that mapping thing of the room I posted a while back where your physical room matches the VR environment so I am gonna give that a go and see how I get on.

                                                            Cheers.

                                                            We're still booked in for November. Hopeful it'll be alright as there's only 14 guests

                                                              Was in Frsnce last summer. Nice meal al Fresco and of course only 1 tiny little broom closet Jax. Plumbing about 50 years old with a complicated but delicate looking flush system which I managed to break. Was only a piss but I was frantically trying to fix the fucking thing as could hear people waiing outside. Eventually just said sod it and left. Slight shrug of the shoulders and gesturing back towards the toilet in a nonchalant "cest pas mon affaire" type way.

                                                              Always getting in to these "uh oh" type situations.

                                                              French cafes definitely consider their toilet merely having a wonky seat as them being totally on top of their customer's toiletry needs. They must have skipped the Plumbing class in favour of Advanced Shrugging in French Bar College.

You do the courtesy flush and then after finishing your business realise it's a slow filling toilet and there isn't enough water in the tank for the final proper flush. I'd say many of us innocent bystanders would prefer no floating turds greeting us on arrival in the cubicle over a risk-taking courtesy flusher. Speaking for the silent majority here.
                                                                The 1st load should be the mudderload . This carries the main bulk . The initial release contains the offending odour. The lid should be shut when dispatching the mudderload. Take this opportunity to work on you sphincter muscle and perhaps some squats to build up the scrawny legs . If the 2nd lesser of the two evil jobbies remains . Leave the toilet in good faith. , you did what was humanly possible at the time .

                                                                    I was interested to see how difficult the programming is involved behind it all as the market is only going to continue to grow. Like the early days of mobile apps, if you can create simple good ideas with mass appeal it could be very lucrative but I decided to play the pokers instead last month. Bad decision

                                                                    That kind of programming is hard though. Mainly down to the math and physics involved in the worlds. I did some very simple augmented reality stuff before and even that was difficult. Although I was working in a very low-level library whereas if you use some kind of engine like Unity I presume it abstracts much of that stuff away from you but never used it. I see Unity recently moved an office to Dublin.

                                                                    Some guy stuck up a post on Reddit with a tutorial to do that mapping thing of the room I posted a while back where your physical room matches the VR environment so I am gonna give that a go and see how I get on.
                                                                    you'd be better off getting into the nuances of DApps, IMO, distributed APPs, VR is a little like AI which has been 50 years coming and almost ready, I'm not as sure about VR as I am about DApps.

                                                                    And lol, all new engineers will wait until the SDK is easy to use

                                                                    Not suggesting you're one of those new engineers !

Over the years, every Irish movie that was mentioned to me I tried to keep track of and at a later date acquire so I could have a pretty decent list.. and now, I'm trying to make sure that the list is not missing some glaringly obvious choices, or even just some good Irish movies I don't have. It's a long auld list, some are probably not even that Irish to be honest, and the ones with a star I have still yet to get a decent version of but happy with new ones if you have any!

Well maybe not a shock as Trump is already rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic . I know sample size etc but I'm getting this from a few states. I'm confident hes going down BIG.

People seem to be comfortable for the most part with 1000 deaths a day, and most models I've looked at expect that number to continue going down for the next few weeks at least.

                                                                                                                  - I don't particularly think anything about the policies of Biden / Trump or who they are - as in, I don't think right now, beyond what is reflected in the polls, this has any new information on the ability of one person to win
                                                                                                                  - I'm taking fivethirtyeight as a decently true poll aggregation which is an accurate reflection of reality. And those polls say that Biden should walk it - or at least that Biden should be 1/2 and Trump 2/1
                                                                                                                  - I think there's a current irrationality in the market because of Trumps surprise win the last time, and there's some form of magical thinking out there which just isn't correct that because of one surprise happening in the past that we should price in another big surprise in the future. I think that surprise from the last time has already been accounted for in current polls, or at least in aggregate polls.

                                                                                                                  So essentially am betting on the assumption that other bettors are misinterpreting the true statistical odds.

And Tesla is valued at half a trillion meaning they'll need to rather quickly reach about $25 billion a year in profitability in order to justify that valuation. A mere 50% or more in annual profitability than Toyota, the world's car beast.

People seem to be comfortable for the most part with 1000 deaths a day, and most models I've looked at expect that number to continue going down for the next few weeks at least.

When you add in the lunatic soundbites from Trump the case against will be solid . 'People' are not comfortable with 1000 a day . However 1/4 a million will ring true. Hes toast . A huge % of the population are chomping at the bit to vote I cant see him not being destroyed .
