    When I was younger I didn't realise how vividly other people are able to visualise things. Kinda just never thought anything of it. Best I can see is as if something was far away on a B&W TV. So for that set of questions above, I only have a very vague idea of a table/bar/person in my head. Dreams are more like ideas than visuals. So while I can lucid dream, it's not particularly exciting. And I never not known when I'm dreaming.


    It's a bit like internal monologues, some people have them, some people don't, but people generally assume that everyone else has the same as them.

    I tend to fill in a lot of those details automatically.
    Red snooker ball, round wooden table, in a dark bar with low ceiling, room is empty. A woman walks up can’t see her face. Ball falls off and bounces 3 times. I can hear the bouncing noise on a concrete.

    that was genuinely the first pass imagery. If I think back now after reading your full post, There’s lots of other details added. The black and white idea is just completely alien to me.

      Jeez that's gas, I'd be much more on the other side of it - just a fuzzy notion of a nondescript ball falling off a nondescript table, like something seen out of the corner of my eye on a black and white TV as described. Had to make up answers to all the questions. That's very interesting.

        I think neo nazi should be condemned. Does this mean I condemn them ? phrasing is important as it can indicate mindset. How hard is it to take self responsibility and simply say I - MYSELF CONDEMN WHITE SUPREMACY. . Its a throwaway unless you do.

        'Sure ' Also means fk all.

                Perhaps he doesn't but perpetuating the myth does nothing more than solidify his position with a group that is never voting for a Democrat anyway.

                It doesn't do anything for him in gaining votes with the undecided voters, which is what he needs. If anything, it's probably fair to say it's a deterrent so hardly a smart move politically.

                      You see this tiny place that some chancer is shamefully trying to get €425k for on the grounds that they have planning permission for a (smallish in square metres) two storey extension out the back - not mentioning of course that that means there will be no garden left in the house after building an extension. Whats a ballpark figure for what an extension like that would cost? Like I've no idea if it would be €20k, €50k, €100k. Just no idea.





                      This might help for a rough idea.

                            My gut would say 100k +. It still wouldn't be a very big house though at under 100 sq metres so the house there must be pretty small

                                That website suggests €143k for my own renovation project, which I would bite off my own hand for. So would think it's underestimating.

                                          Love Halloween, this'll be only the 2nd time in the past 20 years that I won't make it to the IFI for any Horrorthon screenings

                                            That calculator seems pretty decent.

                                            Bro renovated a house for our mother, cost approx 45-50k for him to do the work. Calculator came in at 90k which seems about right.

                                            Perhaps closer on culchie prices

He once said he could shoot someone in the head on TV and retain his popularity, he has done much much worse and and is still a flip, and decent % will be secret Trump voters . He wasnt joking. The US is more rancid and hateful than any country in the world. I dont think there is any chance he is beaten and if he is genuinely think we will see a civil war of sorts in the US.

                                                                                          You see this tiny place that some chancer is shamefully trying to get €425k for on the grounds that they have planning permission for a (smallish in square metres) two storey extension out the back - not mentioning of course that that means there will be no garden left in the house after building an extension. Whats a ballpark figure for what an extension like that would cost? Like I've no idea if it would be €20k, €50k, €100k. Just no idea.
                                                                                          They don't lose that much of the garden as they are building in the spot of the existing single story extension.
                                                                                          It's basically turning the current 1 Living/2 Bed into a basic 2 Living/3 Bed


                                                                                          The calculator site doesn't allow extra-over costs for two story extension, demolition, access issues. It's about 35 sqm. So at 2.5k/sqm it's going to be close to €90k. Plus another €10-20k on the rest of the house imo.

Think huge % of people in America dont fess up to voting Trump but do. Regardless of result it's a rancid place. Think there is a decent chance of civil war or whatever new media dresses it up as. Cant see either side accepting the results.

                                                                                                          That was some of the best football we've played in at least 5 years, probably longer. Playing as they are after just three games under Kenny gives me actual hope, like real hope, not just blind patriotic optimism hope.

From what I pick up, the class are fascinated as they've never previously seen a male teacher and didn't think that men could be teachers.

I haven't looked much in the past few months in terms of any gaps in testing but assuming it's similar, the probability of us getting into similar trouble and into L5 must be relatively high now.

                                                                                                                      I heard a couple of weeks ago about a potential mid term extension with an eye on locking everyone down for an extended 2 week period but I was quite dismissive at the time. Clearly the person was right about an extended midterm being on the cards so not quite as confident now.

A fantastic spy series. Arguably one of the best French series ever
