    Got off early today woo hoo..went for a walk with the dog around the Blessington lakes, they are building a greenway at the moment which is going to be very nice btw. Nice job when it is all done.

    Honestly the amount of rubbish in the car park, on the beach is actually insane. Walked by x3 pretty standard (prob Aldi or Lidl) camping chairs and 1 broken one en route. Picked 3 working ones on the way back.

    Honestly could have filled 4 large black bins with bbqs, bottles and food waste on the way back.

    Got back to the car park and couldn't get out, sorry drive a bigger diesel 1.7 guzzler jeep/MPV and couldn't get out of the car park as blocked in. All D regs but you already know.

    Threw a large rock from the beach through the drivers side window of the car that was blocking me in and let the handbrake down and moved it to block another car.

    #Sorry
    This kind of thing, used to contort me, why dont people care, etc etc etc or some variation of that, now twice a week I take black rubbish bags down to my local beach and pick all the shit up. If I go somewhere new I bring a bag and pick the shit up. Easy to be like hippy bullshit. But if we all want to be Ok we, every single one of us will have to some version of that.

      See this is the thing. I consider you a good friend, but, Im 10y older than you. I have a pretty good idea what you think of me regarding my ideas on a whole range of subjects that track your attention. I also get the feeling from here that you have a set idea on other regs here feeling on those topics. But you never know whats going on behind the scenes too. Everything evolves as you go through life. Just because some of us dont engage here doesnt mean everyone doesnt read/think/imagine on certain topics either. Always happy to engage though IRL



      Edit - ugh just fell for the limp jam with AA in my first online tourney in a month. Who the fook left the over 50s online for poker FFS

      PPS - pint tomorrow or grub in mine if u fancy - wife and kid free and a bed here for ya

        Dont understand the response.

        The above is, IF you find the awful litter and pollution jarring in places you love and find beautiful, take that energy, and use it. Do something constructive. Bring a bag. Pick shit up. If you need some mumbo jumbo reason not to feel like a crusty hippy when doing it, think.of it as a thanks for the peace and enjoyment the place gives you. Instead of feeling disillusioned. Feel empowered. No Instagram video. Dont become a wellness coach. Just pick shit up.

        Up for Pint. Have the little one, but if ya can get out this way I'm all ears.

                See this is the thing, its not amazing. You finding it amazing is.

                I live in a real world, with real people. Mothers, Fathers, children of all ages, a community. Doing normal things. I doubut if 5% of the people i meet walking to and from school and summer camps etc, and people i meet on holidays down the country (ie culchies) have any notion of the world some people live in on the internet in their bubbles. Its not real life, its just not. Im not saying you do as i know you are completely distanced from that world as much as you can but you are still far more invested than the average population.

                      Apparently it was so hot in Dublin this week the ice cream van in Ballymun was selling actual ice cream.

                        Remember years ago the old man and others in the residents association planting flowers to snazz the joint up for the tidy estate comp. They were pulled up overnight...replanted..pulled up..replanted

                        I remember asking him about it and he was unperturbed.."theyll get bored with it eventually"

                        Exactly that. Patience and determination won out.

                                I sigh at the use of the term 'cancelled', an unwelcome development on ipb.

                                To be honest it looks more like a case of 60yo male dinosaur journalist being pushed out because what he brings in no longer justifies his upper-tier wage or contract.
                                If he was still gold then they'd give him more rope, otherwise wait for him to overstep the mark and boot him.
                                It's been going on for decades, if it was the 1970s then Neil Francis would be played by Walter Matthau in the film version.

                                At least nowadays Francis can continue his shtick online and if enough people like what he has to say about the gays and the foreigners then he'll have the last laugh on the Indo.

                                  Turned on the Ireland women's hockey match there (black protestant that I am) and the sweat pouring off the poor ladies. 9:30 pm in Tokyo and still 33 or so degrees. I feel sorry them, the young, athletic, heaving, glistening, short skirted...wait maybe it's not pity I'm feeling.

                                    The comments under this from Japanese folk would make you really proud.

                                    Mad to think we were the only ones to do it.

                                        Ah no, I think you can be proud that your culture recognises the importance of respecting other cultures. It's obviously quite unique, given the Irish athletes were the only ones to do it.

                                          Really, tell that to the Irish hockey team. Never seen a group so proud and happy. They will remember that for a long time and fair play to them.

                                          No beast so fierce but knows some touch of pity, but I know none, therefore am no beast.

                                            That’s pride in their own achievement, not national pride though. Hotspur is sayings Irish viewers feeling pride seeing the Irish teams gesture is ridiculous. I don’t think he’d suggest that they should feel proud if themselves.

                                            Personally, I’d share Lazare’s view. Nothing wrong with being proud that our countrymen were the only team out of 200-ish to acknowledge the hosts.

                                                        Completely forgot about this as we munched fish in Bantry. Even had a former Irish international at the table and she was raging when she realised we'd all completely missed it.

                                                          Has he still got the Roman Greco hair with the natural curls?.
                                                          We only have photo fits of him. Many a man would commit sins to have a scalp like his. Even though his actual scalp hasn't been seen since birth.

                                                                                          Turns out degloving happens a fair bit when you are NOT wearing gloves!

                                                                                                              She hadn't.

Many times I went back to verify before I came up with a method which involves ringing the bell 1 second after I turn the key. I can always clearly remember having rung the bell so I know I've locked it.
                                                                                                              Other stuff like gas, immersion, cooking, heating appliances are a problem - if I'm going to be back that day then I can let it go and keep on walking despite a nagging doubt.

Going to the airport is terrible for me as I just have nagging doubts for an hour or so despite knowing I did lock up and turn everything off. I never once forgotten passport in my life but usually have to check 4 or 5 times to make sure I have it before starting to relax about it.

So absent genuine ocd you could just take photos of yourself turning off those things before leaving for a holiday. Although in the long run learning to be okay with doubt is better.
