    Maybe to stop people breaking speed limits when they are highly likely to be tired and it's pitch black?

      Any good autobiograpy recommendations, probably outside Sports genre as most of those ticked off.

        Also the now defunct football team did the worst hotdogs imaginable...to the point it was a running joke to recommend them to first timers like they were the greatest thing ever... Somewhere might be carrying on the tradition

        Stuck for a third thing tbh...

          What are your top 3 sporting autobiographies?

            I suppose you could always report back about just how stoney and grey is the soil

            Is it really as stoney and grey as they claim!?

              I'd have to think about that. Only back reading a bit now since the kids arrived 5 years ago. Currently on Cyrille Regis which early on looks promising. Most recent offerings all tend to be quite bland with very little insight tbh.

              Edit - Keith Gillespie & Kerry Dixon probably relate to this forum well

                  Maybe you're right. Or maybe it's a revenue collecting exercise to park a hidden speed van overnight 25 metres from a change in speed limit, 3 miles out of town on a deserted road. Take your pick.

                      Really not a good look for the commander in chief to be slamming his own military. Now if only one of these generals would break cover (i.e. Mattis or Kelly) and go on the record....

                      I see that multiple news orgs, including Fox, have confirmed the reportage.

                          It's a bit unfair to compare the two as the guys down here have no control over Duty and VAT rates which make up a large portion of the total cost.

                          I'm all for a bargain but if the difference is only a Euro or two, I'd prefer to support local at a slightly higher cost.
                          no thats the euro price, the advertised price get discounted as you go through the purchase funnel

                            I thought Dice was being fiercely hyperbolic in saying he had most sports autobiographies ticked off. But then Cyrille Regis, Keith Gillespie, and Kerry Dixon!

                                  A further 10% off an already very low price is hard to argue with to be fair.

                                                I horsed through Raised by Wolves last night, well, the first 3 that were released. Really enjoyed it.

                                                  Have any of you guys been listening to Song Exploder podcast?

                                                  Had to drive to Mayo for work on Thurs so looked up a few pods the night before.

                                                  It's fantastic. 20 min eps, a different artist each time breaking down one of their songs, the writing, the idea behind it, the production, why they added that particular track or instrument etc. It's really good. Have only listened to two mind, Black Pumas and Nathaniel Rateliff. The former I'd never heard of and am currently listening to. There's tons of episodes available with some really amazing artists.

                                                  Great way to discover new stuff. Highly recommend.

                                                          One good thing to come from Covid is the streaming and showing of club games. So far today I've watched 2 Kerry club games on a stream, 1 paid, 1 free, 1 Mayo championship match on a stream and 2 Tyrone semi finals on RTE. Tomorrow looks stacked and the hardest decision is what ti actually watch, theres so much choice.

I guess maybe the Beatles might compete for that title, but only them. I always loved R.E.M.'s music so much, even in the face of much, much slagging from my friends back in secondary school

A few girls were just looking at me horrified.

                                                                                                          On October 4, 1986, while walking along Park Avenue to his apartment in Manhattan, Rather was attacked and punched from behind by a man who demanded to know "Kenneth, what is the frequency?" while a second assailant chased and beat him. As the assailant pummeled and kicked Rather, he kept repeating the question. In describing the incident, Rather said "I got mugged. Who understands these things? I didn't and I don't now. I didn't make a lot of it at the time and I don't now. I wish I knew who did it and why, but I have no idea
