    Yeah...whatever that is

    I'm in the midst of trying to do something with my office because I have no taste and my missus wont let me pick anything for any other room in the house.

    So in an effort to stick it to her, I'm on a mission to make my office the best designed room in the house. Hoping money is a substitute for style.
    Almost bought an Eames chair the other day but bought a really nice Guy Roger's Manhattan instead.

    Combine that with a handful of nice oils & prints(IPB member included) I feel I'm in a good spot.

      You've no idea of whether your actions have resulted in zero cases. What safety measures are you taking inside, how do you sustain those measures when your punters are seven pints deep?

      I've just looked at my Google maps timeline for Feb.

      Home, home, home, home, Supervalu, home, home, home.

      That's it. That's the month, that was the previous 2 months.

      You're a sound fella, but unfort your actions will result in more months like that for me, and for everyone.

      It's a massive pain in the hole, I know, and you obv feel you're doing no harm, but unfort it's not much different to insurance fraud in terms of how it affects wider society.
      Sorry Laz but I don't think its the same as insurance fraud. I'm not going to try and justify my actions. Hope you and yours keeping well.

I don't know German but it's not a leap to understand meine unterhose. Generally there are far more obvious words in languages, that phrase in Spanish, had it ended in flamas it would be easier etc, llamas here is what is know as a "false friend" in languages, because while it does share the same origin as in English (Flamma in Latin), it has evolved over time to be different. If they did not have the same etymological root it would be a false cognate. If it had been pants with "pantalón" and "pantalones" in that phrase, obviously we would understand. Est/están are in lots of languages and are found in English & Latin, is, to be etc. Finnish, Hungarian there may as well be from another planet, whereas the other easier languages share lexical cognates with English.
        I'm yanking your chain a little, because obviously Spanish is easier to learn when coming from English than Russian/Hungarian/Simplified Chinese etc but there's a world of difference between easier to learn and easy to learn. Understanding it might mean 'my something is/are something' still leaves you in world of trouble in terms of actually having an effective conversation. Especially when it comes to idioms (same applies to non-native speakers learning any other language of course)

        tomar el pelo
        ser pan comido
        estar como una cabra
        no tener pelos en la lengua
        quedarse de piedra


        To take your example, and RDIII's subsequent picture of llamas...it's pronounced jamas which is kind of confusing because there is a Spanish word that is written as jamas, but that one is pronounced hamas. To add to the confusion llamas means flames in this example, but in another context/sentence it means name. Same spelling, same pronunciation, completely different meaning.

        Están could be taken to mean is/to be for sure, but in Spanish we have ser and estar both of which are the verb to be but need to used in correct contexts or they are grammatically incorrect
        Ser = DOCTOR = Date Occupation Characteristic Time Origin Relation
        Estar = PLACE = Position Location Action Condition Emotion

        Similarly we have por/para which means 'for' but also need to be used in the correct context, generally para is before something happens and por is after it happens, but they are replaced by a *to' in certain strange, for me, situations i.e.

        I'm waiting to my wife, instead of I'm waiting for my wife

        Anyway as I tell my students, There are two things at play, the first is being able to communicate and understand and the second is being grammatically correct. The former can be achieved on a basic level in a few months, i.e. you'll be able to communicate in a basic enough manner as long as there is no jargon or expansive vocabulary needed. The second takes years to master but you'll eventually get there. I personally believe that English is easier to learn coming from Spanish than Spanish is coming from English but that's mostly due to the subtleties in the Spanish language that just don't exist in English.

          Cheers Pat, doing good in the immediate family, have a loved one though that's not in a good place and causing us a lot of anxiety around it. I suppose it's why I'm a bit tetchy about it above.

          I know there's no moral equivalence between you and an insurance scammer, I suppose I feel it's somewhat comparable in how small actions, multiplied, have a detrimental effect overall on society.

          I'll still want to have a pint with ya when it's safe to let the jackeens in.

            I also think you're a sound guy Pat.

            But Laz is wrong. It's not 'the same as insurance fraud'.

            It's objectively much worse than that. You're knowingly and deliberately breaking restrictions that are in place to save lives. I don't know what mental gymnastics you engage in to justify this but it's unjustifiable and indefensible.

                Pat unfortunately has made his thoughts on this clear in that he does not intend to justify his actions.Trying to get my head around it. For what it's worth going personally to continue observing restrictions, wearing mask etc.

                100 in a bar and 0 cases is not possible. You might get away with for a night or 2. And when Jimmy doesnt turn up one night none of the other patrons are going to tell you hes at home sick or hasnt been in work for the last 4 days.



                Feel I'm wasting my time asking him to reconsider and wasting my time typing. Bit deflated though wondering how long this will go on given some people couldn't give 2 fucks.

                                      Dry Feb over. Didnt quite make the whole month tbh cracked on the 27th. Still not too bad.

                                      Will be having some wine tonight (at home by the way)so expect a drunken rant at some stage! Could be on any number of ranty topics.

                                      in poker news bought into a 25c 50c game for $50 last night and cashed out for $570 (party poker) Happy Days

                                      Also tried to place a bet on Balfes last pick but didnt go through luckily.....his next one sure to be a winner!!

                                              Very true

                                              Its prob already happening or happened just not with serious enough repercussions for anyone to care.
                                              And even if (when) someones 80 year old mother/farher/granny dies sure nothing to do with them. Probably all go to the funeral and get pissed after. "she was grand last week when Paddy dropped round to see her"

                                              So easy to absolve yourself from being responsible. The Covid deniers especially given its low fatality rate for most age groups. And yet its wiped out nearly 1 in 400 of some countries' populations. Every line crossed no matter how small is another x % chance it continues or gets worse or that some poor fucker gets his ticket punched but rest assured that had nothing to do with that party or that meet up or whatever because my fucking pint/book club/insert stupid hobby here club is more important than other peoples health and I know better than them doctors and scientists anyway.

                                              Friends daughter (student 21years old) got it at party infected both her parents. Out partying again recently (lying to Garda at checkpoint about being on her way to study in college at w/e at night)

Got off the bus in Donnybrook, walked along the Dodder to Milltown. Into Ranelagh for an omg breakfast bap at the Devlin. Saw a few houses that were for sale, remarked how we need a few hundred k extra earnings on top. Then on to Rathmines. Which seems to still look like a kip? How is it not yet gentrified. Then we made it to Rathgar on an approximate trip towards Kimmage and Terenure, and at that point gave up.

Just the layering skill. Great bacon and sausage choices obv, thats a given. And the bap itself, perfection. But the real art was layering the bottom with a peppery white pudding that got into every mouthful, and then the top with the runny egg that managed to work itself into every bite also. Maybe there was a relish, but who knows. And thats the failing of most baps. The relish is too powerful and overwhelms an otherwise amazing bap. Here it sung quietly in the background, but knew that the bacon was the boss. A genuine work of art.

I'm also trying out a moustache which people have consistently said is the most horrific thing they've ever seen.

Mixed cocktails, bottles, craft cans and draft pints. They're doing quite well all things considered. Pints in actual glasses and they put plastic glasses on top of the glasses to prevent spilling.

                                                                                                      On the other end of the spectrum I've a mate who bought and renovated an old pub. He opened just before Christmas in 2019 and the poor bastard has been closed for a year now.
