      Ah come on, for years you have been fully aligned to the successful PR campaign that altered reality to paint any criticism of the Israeli state or of the zionist project as a form of antisemitism

It seems their current thing is 'if they have to wear a mask then kids should also have to wear a mask'. Even though current evidence (still weak though) is that kids don't really transmit the virus. It's almost like they don't like kids, as the masks thing seems like a spite thing - if I have to do this shitty thing, then so do you. I don't disagree with their dislike of kids, easily the worst example of humanity especially in crowds, but they should have really thought about it before training in the job.
          I am pretty much disgusted with the primary school our kids go to. No help\support bar a few emails.

          It would not have killed them to do a Zoom call for an hour or two a day, God knows the kids badly needed it. Anyone I know in other countries seemed to have routine remote classroom time every day.
          So yeah, GFY Irish teachers imo.

          Funnily enough, the secondary school seemed much more proactive.

            Ya no doubt but you also need to make sure that you have a reason you can stand behind when the unions come asking why you got rid of their friends.

            labour being labour those unions have a ton of power in how the party nominations go.

                  Hmmmmm, tar. Don't know you, or your line of work. But that sounds like kinda passive-aggressive shit to me, like: let's tell on the Cnut and see what shit he gets into. If he finds out it was us, we can say "havin the craic, man". I would be deeply suspicious and would launch a nasty, aggressive, campaign to find the pricks. But maybe that would be a big over-reaction I Dunno. But it's not the kinda thing one does (imho) "for the craic". No. It's not.

                                Will offer a begrudging congrats to yourself and all Pool fans. Was gonna say to all who have been waiting since '90 but i suppose you can hardly call any who followed bandwagoners...WP.

                                      You know when you havent had a proper H2H with you #r old best buddy from Primary/Secondary and you know all his family since you were 4.

                                      Then you fuck off to College but still end up living with your old buddy after he goes off to be a rich plumber in 95 while you are trying to be the man from Normal People and after a few years ye all end up shakled with kids and he ends up in the Prisons after a lifetime watching us all in Coppers.

                                      Then everyone starts dying, especially the last parents that are barely left mentally.

                                      Im struggling with the aul lad like Lao Lao, he's dumped the missus at 73, fml, and back living at my old family home for 1st time sice i lefft in '98 and the kid brother died. 40s are a cunt.

                                          e.g I'm giving blood today so hitting city centre for noon then will arse around there for a few hours with the family (feed the ducks etc) and then work later this evening when daughter is hopefully asleep.
                                          Expecting 9-5 at your desk in a WFH lifestyle isn't 100% viable at all times and thankfully my boss understands this.
                                          I didn't say anything about being at your desk 9-5 though. I completely agree that's not viable. People, especially with kids, have other daily tasks. Home schooling, preparing meals, housework, random errands that you would typically do during your work day - like giving blood. I'm struggle to get my own extra in during the day, can only imagine how much harder kids make it.

                                          I was simply pointing out that it's equally not viable to think along the "work whenever as long as get it done" lines. There has to be a balance of focused work, collaborative work and personal time. The split is most likely specific to various roles, or even highly flexible day to day.

                                          I had a 7:00am zoom meeting this morning to facilitate London timezone. In response, I'll be just took a 2 hours and went to the pub for some.

                                            Seemingly its because of a one-line claim in the quite innocuous article that applying neck pressure like that which killed George Floyd started as a practice with the Israeli secret services, and was trained to US cops. That has been subsequently denied as a specific practice that they train in, but US cops are undeniably sent to Israel for training and Israeli police break just about every human rights rule in their treatment of arabs. That aside, I just don't get how that is anti-semitic, unless we are redefining anti-semitism.
                                            Police forces have some basic training in various holddowns and chokeholds. IMO they don't get enough training in what are highly useful techniques. They need more of this stuff, not less. That goes for the Gardai too.
                                            But the neck pressure that killed George Floyd was not any sort of trained choke or holddown. It was an assault that went wrong.

                                            (IDF probably assisted in some training. I'd besurprised if they were anything more than a minority provider. And claiming that the technique used was a chokehold from Israel is a lie.
                                            Whether or not it's anti-semitic depends entirely on the persons motives for making that lie. If they person made it up specifically to bad mouth Jews/IDF, then course it's anti-semitic. They may have had another reason, or just picked a random place.

                                            The tweet sacking seems heavy handed. But I didn't see the context either.

                                              Found myself having to administer a metaphorical one to my mother this week (refusal for the last 18 months to go see a specialist about something). Ended up treating her like one of the kids and basically forced her to call her GP for a referral. It worked.

                                              Bet she misses the appointment now.

                                                I think I am saw this as something else to everyone else and it wasnt the flexible hours but someone said that Tar was on the beach when he said he was working.

                                                Have been on calls with people who have their laptop in a box in the garden with a cocktail for sunny afternoons - I cant imagine they are getting a tap of work done really.

                                                Doesn't sound like there is much in it really but if you decide the trust is broken Tar I know people who are hiring...

                                                  Im struggling with the aul lad like Lao Lao, he's dumped the missus at 73, fml, and back living at my old family home for 1st time sice i lefft in '98 and the kid brother died. 40s are a cunt.

                                                  My aul lad still has his missus, who we all fucking hate and by all, I mean me, all my siblings, all my nieces & nephews and all my Da's brothers and sisters and all my Da's mates - She is absolute poison and none of us can get our head around it. I've somewhat come to terms with it on the basis that it's company for him but she is a cunt, no other way to sugar coat it.

                                                  I rang him Wednesday to let him know I'd drop into him last night after work and I'd arrange dinner for us both and he was in Clontarf. He'd walked from our house to the Malahide Road (10 minute walk tops for most but it's about 25 minutes for him) From here he got a 15 bus to Fairview and then a 130 bus out to Clontarf, no mask or nothing and he was absolutely bollixed after it. This was all to hang out with his missus who had done similar to come from the south side.

                                                  When I was in with him last night he started to tell me he was out and about this week but he wasn't sure when. I told him he was down in Clontarf on Wednesday but he wasn't sure, he thinks he might have been down there on Monday which is impossible as I was with him for a few hours on Monday in Beaumont for his check up with a specialist after this stint in hospital in Jan so there's no way he made it to Clontarf and back either side of the appointment and it wasn't Tuesday either as I dropped lunch into him and he was there all day.

                                                  40's suck from having to deal with people in their 70's+ but fuck me it's better than 70's+

                                                      The payoff being you can be an absolute prick in your 70s and no-one will say boo to you

                                                      I think if you play it well, old age could be great.

                                                          the new one seems to be ' oh you're not interested, OK do you know anyone who is? I am really struggling to find candidates here.'

                                                          right, so not only do you want me to do your job for you, you also want me to weaken my org by recommending people to leave.

                                                            I still think 'chicks' was the more offensive bit of the 'Dixie Chicks' name.

Now that I think of it, he would be perfect for your role...I think most of the management team here would give him a glowing recommendation. He's a on a completely different level to the rest of our team, sometimes we even ask jokingly whether he's a genius or an idiot...

Some skit with a scanger and a garda was eye gougingly bad so channel hopped a bit and came back to a voiceover saying "next up Jason Byrne &" I didn't hear the rest

What a game! Ridic speed, minimal skill, knock someone out who has knocked out a few people and you can win a hundred euro as a bounty. I've lost all the money on this, so there's no brag here, just love the dynamics of the game. Now if they'd make an omaha version of that the world would be a fantastic place.
