                The crowd who make the lager I like down here are delivering nationwide, may be of use at a pinch. I have no idea whether their IPA is any good, they're called Treaty City Brewery anyway.

                    Start in October/November I guess and run late or compress the university year.

                          I suppose it will have to be for everyone, rather than just first years? Something like 10 weeks of semester, then Christmas, then the final 2 weeks then exams?

                              I found it a bit like watching the early episodes of an X-factor season which essentially amounts to laughing at people who probably have mental health issues. There was nothing in it I found particularly enriching anyway so I turned it off.

                                          Think it goes back to an over pushy primary teacher for me. Me arriving home telling my Mom that we HAD to have fish today. Her saying fuck that and serving up chicken and chips. Every. Single. Year. Lol

                                              Tiger King was decent but thats all. Could have been done in 3 episodes or 4 max but like most things with Netflix they drag it out as long as possible.

                                                Hopefully this is just a case of bad initial testing?

                                                In South Korea, according to authorities, 91 people who have recovered from a coronavirus infection have contracted Covid-19 again!

                                                Director of the Korean Center for Disease Control KCDC, Joeng Eun-kyeong, said it was more likely that the virus had been "reactivated" than that it was a new infection.

                                                  Gave in to the pressure, and brought a few Kinnegar's Scraggy Bay.. absolutely heavenly feeling sitting on the balcony soaking in the evening rays of sunlight sipping the ale.

                                                  Amazing drink.

                                                    Wouldn't say I would be actively avoiding meat, but at the same time wouldn't be actively seeking to eat meat.

                                                    Really don't see the need to make a big deal about it either way. Either you do or dont, it really isn't anyone else business.

                                                      Ever since Making a Murderer became such a phenomenon, it feels that Netflix have gone on the hunt for the next great docuseries. In doing so, they have made some potentially decent shorter stories unnecessarily long.

                                                        Looks like the HSE is trying to introduce an APP similar to the one used in China/S. Korea for the duration of the pandemic.

                                                          Same as that really. I wouldn't be in any way upset if i forgot the fish thing and ate meat. I do try and eat fish on Good Friday/Ash Wednesday though simply because i really like it and it's as good an excuse as any other.

                                                                                              Not to mention only 10% of tests from the most densely populated region? They only took 2x the cases from Glasgow that they took from the Highlands??

                                                                                              Maybe some estimations of the asymptomatics are optimistic but this hardly moves the needle in the other direction?

                                                                                                                My family home is in Kildare though and I was working in Dublin so that's the confusion.

About to give the first episode of Devs a go. Know nothing about it other than Alex Garland wrote and directed it.
