                      Perfectly normal to have emotions all over the place, your body has been through a rollercoaster and the feeling of being hit by a bus all at the same time. Expect to be balling your eyes out at Friends reruns...lol

Suggested a tension between what surgeons consider and what nurses do. Incal is great btw.
                        ah right. Here after surgery you get a few days of self medication where you press the button to your heart's content. one dose just gets you sluggish without any real purpose

                          No, because in that context far left actually just means respect for minorities rights and a rejection of nationalist beliefs. The term far left is used by the far right to discredit anyone they happen to disagree with.

                                Not sure we have any. Fine Gael are practically communists. I suppose Gemma O'D and her buddies are the closest thing to a far right we have.

                                  I watched the first 30 minuted of it but to be fair to HJ the guy didn't come across as someone who leans centre-left at all. He also talked about trolling 'woke' liberals on twitter. I'm not sold on this guy at all to put it mildly.

                                    I gave up after an hour. I usually find Rogan's retarded questions refreshing, and it gives people an opportunity to clarify their position in a way they wouldn't ordinarily do.

                                    Kind of gave up when neither of them could see any reason why someone would have a problem with Amazon or Starbucks, other than them being Marxists.

                                      Anyone still clinging to the delusion that SF are anything other than an extreme right wing party should do themselves a favour and listen carefully to the interview Mary Lou did on RTE radio teatime yesterday and then ask yourself the question; why did she go to the funeral of a murderer and bank robber and all round scumbag when she couldn't even show civil respect to the name and rank of a murdered Garda last week.
                                      If the answer is not immediately obvious to you focus on the orders to SF Members from Derry who were ordered to turn up in uniform and try to be honest with yourself when you consider again the question of why exactly she did turn up in Belfast when there was a golden opportunity to even slightly distance herself from the criminals who are still running things in Northern Ireland.

                                      Abundantly clear from what she said herself yesterday that she was ordered to attend.

                                        I've always found them a mixed bag. People often assume I support them in some way, because I somewhat sympathise with people from any ideology (including fascists, racists and religious groups) who are willing to give up their life for 'their' cause.

                                        I find it more disturbing that people support sports teams because they represent the same piece of dirt they happened to be born on

                                          In my continuing quest to raise the awareness of the chronically deluded I'm always struck by the moronic but widely held assumption that all horse racing is bent and that racing only exists to support betting when the truth is that soccer has far more money traded on it and is subject to much less scrutiny than racing.

                                          Anyway this thread should be a bit of an eyopener.

                                            You're like someone arguing that methamphetamine is much better than heroin, because you get a better buzz off it. Heroin is clearly better.

                                                    Did you happen to read Fintan O'Toole's "Who the fuck is Mary Lou Anyway?" piece in the IT a few months ago? It left me with a very altered opinion where I would have previously thought she was a FFer who saw advantage in moving over but he made a compelling case that she always was a very strong republican in the troubles sense.

                                                    Basically I'm questioning the idea that she would rather pretend there were no Slab Murphys and is being forced not to by shadowy figures. I think she's probably a fellow traveller.

                                                          The transfer of Wigan from one dubious HK fund to another does seem to be pretty scandalous.

                                                          Mind you, the sudden transfer of all those horses from the ownership of Princess Haya to Sheik Mohammed seems to be going unmentioned in the trade papers and tv coverage.
                                                          At least the Wigan situation is being discussed.

(hence why it tastes so damn good but why you wouldn't want to eat out every day)

His personal poker story is very entertaining and some of the stories around the high stakes games he plays in are outrageous.

I guess its maybe quite obvious, but had never occurred to me before exactly why we add salt to something. Suggests a fairly fundamental lacking in the cooking department, despite being the person in the family who cooks. .

I'm now at the point where I couldn't just throw a steak on the pan. I'm dry aging beef at home, to sous vide and the finish with the flame thrower to sear! I don't think there's a huge amount of point in going to cookery school for home use. Once you have the interest just do your internet research...all the stuff about the 5 main sauces of French cooking is there. Maybe buy La Technique by Jacques Pepin as well. Everyone swears by it.
