        Should have brought a WWE toy wrestling ring and had a battle royale with the 20 crabs.

          Or one small crab 20 times.

          I’m sure the crab had a fantastic day too.

            No, he had a big bucket full of water and put each crab in as he caught them. Then at the end, we put them all back in the sea as they were too small to eat.

              When we were retailing white and brown goods in the 80's we were losing huge amount of sales in white goods to the ESB retail operation where you could put anything on your bill. We could only offer finance through block finance we would underwrite ourselves or even more expensive hire purchase type options. To help compete we started marketing 6 months interest free credit and it was an enormous success.
              The banks used to issue cards that as well as being atm cards were also cheque guarantees that allowed you to write a cheque up to £50 that was protected from bouncing. So there was no contract the buyer paid at least 20% up front and then just wrote and signed five post dated cheques for the balance. If the balance was for more than 250 you'd get a different batch of cheques off a different guarantee card often the other party on a joint account.
              Level of problems for us was really tiny but as loads more retailers started doing similar the banks went apeshit tried claiming this was fraud on our part and after while they went as far as bouncing cheques that had been guaranteed and were backed by funds because the cheque number sequence showed that they were post dated and only honouring them on representing by when they would have stuck on a fee. I remember towards the end having people write the cheques from different parts of the cheque book. Absolute cunce

                        Ryan Depaulo has a youtube channel dedicated to him being a compete degen. Firing at slots, video poker the whole deal. He just took down the big 500 WSOP event for $200k. What makes it funny is that he did it while mooching off Whole Foods wifi playing in the parking lot on a tablet in his car.

                          Went crab fishing off Unionhall pier using the Sickpuppy patented method with SuperValu ham. This was spurned by all crustaceans present so maybe the chorizo approach is the correct one. Did attract a curious seal.

                          Kids then jumped off the pier multiple times which was deemed superior recreation. Now at Rosscarbery doing the Lagoon activity stuff, well kids are. I swerved this inflatable fun in favour of a kayak around. Not a bad day once the sun came out.

                          Fishing for crab off pier <<<<< jumping off pier.

                          Sorry Mick.

                                        When did I mention using Serrano ham? A bashed up barnacle guts out will smell attract the crafty crustaceans. A road kill badger would be the nut bait though.

                                                A good few people I know have left the country, seems a lot easier to rent. Students gone back home too etc. Friend just got a 2 bed in smithfield for 1200. My housemate moved out too, now I live alone, oh baby. At the same time I saw people offering a shared room for 550 yesterday (4 people in a 2 bed), and another place was 1k for a room in a shared place.

                                                                                          TBH I can see where they those new IP businesses are coming from. It's risky yes and the valuations seem high now BUT I think bands and record companies have traditionally been rather shortsighted and this is a much longer play, monetising catalogues hard over many decades with a much broader vision of where the opportunities might be.

                                                                                          And I don't really have a problem with that for bands/artists which are big business.

                                                                                          The main risks I'd highlight is that the ubiquity which will come from putting their images and songs in places they traditionally may not have been will dilute their cache (in the west) and they won't get anything near the return they might think they will from 'emerging' markets in the east.

                                                                                          Might be another case of Guy Hands catastrophic takeover of EMI a decade ago but this move seems different. It's music industry insiders trying to disrupt with a near bottomless pit of cash.

                                                                                          The challenge will be to get the revenue streams robust enough before the money runs out and/or the often very fickle world of celebrity/entertainment either pushes back against the prices or something like another global recession/depression (or something like cancel culture) create an insurmountable structural shift.

Suppose you'd take a bus or walk through the park to the tube if need be. I do like how handy my other bro in London has it, he's in Stockwell so a few minutes into town on the tube if you want.

Man Dublin accommodation is so shite. Think it's quite large though - about 95sqm - although weirdly the letting agent had no idea what size it was, which is surely the first piece of info you'd have on hand.

Tbh I see so many great looking places in London that accom here is depressing. Everywhere my friends or brothers live there is always much nicer than any place I've lived. I keep an eye on apartments there out of interest if I move, and there are a hell of a lot of quality ones.

                                                                                                                It's strange how often the size is missing from ads here. That's large, his is 78.
