      Just doing some very amateur forecasting.
      I think Trump has 21 red states that he wins in a canter and they give him 146 EC votes.
      For Biden, 19 blue states and they give him 217 EC votes.

      So Trump has to pick up an additional 124 votes, Biden has to get 53.


      This is where I think\guess the action is:
      State EC Votes Lean Trump # Lean Biden # Tossup #
      Arizona 11 11
      Florida 29 29
      Georgia 16 16
      Iowa 6 6
      Michigan 16 16
      Minnesota 10 10
      Nevada 6 6
      North Carolina 15 15
      Ohio 18 18
      Texas 38 38
      Wisconsin 10 10
      TOTAL 175 78 32 65
      I don't really think Texas is in play but let's stick it in there for the craic.

      I think it really hinges on Florida. So if you want to have a punt, consider your average Floridian.

        Never heard of Flight of the doves, absolutely adding it to the list!
        Had thought Excalibur was more British/Scottish as never appeared on my searches and I've never seen it, oops!

        Parked (never heard of this until recently)

        The Devil's Own (Brad Pitt's accent surely counts?)

        Killing of the Sacred Deer (two leads are Irish)

        Not sure of the requirements so just throwing out anything with something Irish in it that's not on your list.

        Shrooms?
        Completely forgot about Shrooms! I even watched that years back and definitely should have remembered it.
        I actually have the devils own downloaded so must have missed putting it on the list, but the other 3 I have never heard of so they are very welcomed additions and much appreciated!

        Irish main characters ?
        Honestly a good few I haven't either, but am getting through them slowly. The initial plan was to have a list of good Irish movies which are either based in Ireland, or made by Irish(basically just used IFI productions for ideas). I had a list of maybe 50/60 but then took any suggestions over the years, and became more lenient as it's better to have a long list and trim it down.

        The one on the list that stands out the most for me is The Secret of Roan Inish. It was a movie I had never heard of, never came up on any of my searches, and maybe 3 years into my job in a hostel here in Dublin some guest from America asked me had I ever seen it. Told her I had never even heard of it, said that her granny made her watch it as a kid and she has always loved it. Downloaded it during work and put it on in the cinema room area for her and other guests and was quite nice. I asked many older generation of Irish people after, and not one had heard of it.



        I think at the end of all the suggestions I'll just look up Colm Meaney/Brendan Gleeson/Donal Gleeson/Colin Farrell/Lovehate actors and get a few random ones if possible, but any other suggestions always welcomed!

        Go big or go homeless.

          Everyone thought he would be beat last time, surely there's better even shots to get 4 figures on. The place is nuts, anything could happen.

            Was speaking to the doc a few days ago and she seemed unsure how flu vaccinations would proceed this year. I don't really get why it is complicated? Its seemingly not just a case of turning up at the doctor with everyone in tow and lining up to get a short jab each, but why isn't it that simple?

              And that's maybe why the odds on Biden are so attractive! It's not a 'on the one hand, on the other hand' situation - its an aggregation of hundreds of polls that have taken account of the problems from last time.

                I remember on here years ago I said Speith would not only win the masters but by a huge margin. Then you got the neigh types saying 12s was a terrible bet . When you KNOW you know. No amount of whataboutery will convince me hes not going down big. Evens is HUGE .

                  I think you are on drugs if you are backing against Trump. He once said he could shoot someone in the head on TV and retain his popularity, he has done much much worse and and is still a flip, and decent % will be secret Trump voters . He wasnt joking. The US is more rancid and hateful than any country in the world. I dont think there is any chance he is beaten and if he is genuinely think we will see a civil war of sorts in the US.

                          The US really do suffer from sample sizing. There are a huge % of decent people there. It's far from being the worst country in the world that's a nonsensical point. The one beside us is no better on the score you might be thinking of . The UK is a ticking timebomb . Trump has opened the door to the bad and the ugly . That can be corrected by the decent majority.

                            I hope your right but far from convinced. Also betting on a market with a high possibility of interference, he will go to any lengths to win in next couple of months and with the crazy electorate it may work. Can't see biden having the same appetite to fight dirty to win.

                              Armed forces on the street say otherwise. America is in much worst shape than UK.

                                America is so binary and Trump has become major symbol of that. To not vote Trump is to become the looney marxist left you hate so much. I don't see as many switching their votes. It's a coin flip and there's no value imo

                                  Don't forget that it's not your average Floridian, its a very special tiny subset of people who are susceptible to swinging towards Trump despite the evidence in front of their eyes. The amount of money that is being accurately targeted at them personally is unreal and the outcome will be close despite the worst POTUS and unarguably the worst person ever to hold the office standing as an incumbent.

                                    Remember that Biden is equally throwing money at the same race.

                                    If I was an enterprising Floridian, I'd be looking to sell my vote to the highest bidder. I wonder what the $ value would be....

                                      He's been an elected US politician for nearly 50 years, I'm sure he knows a trick or two. Or knows the people who know.

                                      Although throwing mud at Trump seems pointless as it doesn't stick.

                                        Had a text this morning from Boots saying to book now for appointments starting October 1st. Had mine there the last few years, mainly coz there are fewer sick people hanging around the place https://www.boots.ie/vaccinations/wi...atalogId=28502

                                        Though this sounds a bit negative

                                        There is a limited supply of the flu vaccine this year for those who don’t fall into one of the HSE ‘at-risk’ groups. If this applies to you or if you don't have a pre-paid voucher, please contact your chosen pharmacy to check stock availability before you click on ‘Get started’ and book an appointment.

                                          so now that the firing mania over a single fucking dinner has lifted, was it still a smart thing to get rid of the guy who was - every week - directly relaying Irish brexit concerns to the chief brexit negotiator in a way that no prime minister ever could hope?

                                                  Excellent, thanks. Booked it there now for the two adults. We were made to feel irresponsible as parents if didn't flu-vaccinate the kids in France. There was a huge advertising campaign on it. Surprised that the practice on kids is quite different here - as in the doctor seemed to view it as a novelty idea. Although heard the same on chicken pox. That its viewed as highly irresponsible to not give the chicken pox vaccine to your kids in the US, but is largely unheard of to vaccinate against chicken pox in Europe.

                                                      Whos fault is that though, the peoples or big Phils? If he was so great he should have really known when and when not to be an arrogant cunt. Could have kept him in a job. The tone of his interview was appalling. Aside from ridiculously flaunting the rules because he believed he was above them. Its hard to see a scenario where he kept his job the way he acted.

I'm not going to claim to know too much about Phil Hogan prior to this, but whats the irreplaceable superpower he has I hear people talking about?

If he was so great he should have really known when and when not to be an arrogant cunt. Could have kept him in a job. The tone of his interview was appalling. Aside from ridiculously flaunting the rules because he believed he was above them. Its hard to see a scenario where he kept his job the way he acted.
                                                              How is a Phil to operate in a world where this is a popular show, and then you get invited to a feed and end up losing your job. It's mixed messages. I think its precisely because he is a bollix and an arrogant cunt that he was judged to be so good at his job. You don't go around shouting at a US trade representative that 'We've not fucking Burundi' if you are an accountant. His very skillset was his downfall.

                                                                            That said, that tweet reads like they had a good relationship. Barnier would be one to call it as he sees it in most cases, and ultimately, it really is all about relationships at that level, and really any level tbh.

                                                                            I think it's prob reasonable to say the next commissioner is unlikely to have the same relationship with Barnier.

Phil says a few jokes, Barnier thinks man the Irish are hilarious, and Phil says at the end 'oh by the way micky, put a border down the Irish sea like a good lad' and Barnier goes off to please his friend. He obviously has some sort of presence and knows how to work that type of crowd.

He will be disappointed he didn't win stage one or stage three after being in decent positions. He looked today like he was just making sure he got the green by beating Sagan to the line, if not he made an awful balls of timing his sprint. If he could snaffle a stage somewhere before the end it would be class.

                                                                                                    First, he didn't die, which is the first fairly obvious clue that this wasn't a state hit. As you say yourself the Russian state approach is to actually kill you if they want to kill you. Not to make a mistake, send you to hospital to fix you, and then fly you to Germany. Are you seeing any flaws yet?!

                                                                                                    Second, you don't actually seem to be aware that Navalny is vastly better known in Russia as a highly popular anti-corruption journalist than his ineffective political stuff. He's not even, by far, the most popular opposition leader.

                                                                                                    He works on highlighting particularly local corruption, which is popular in the media precisely because the Russian gov is likely to do something about that (as it's not their corruption). Which is why he was on the trip in the first place.

                                                                                                    So we have:
