    We're doing literally zero genetic sequencing in Ireland and relying on the UK data to know wtf is going on, which is why last christmas went so badly. :-/

    Can't believe how badly I've been red pilled over the last 18 months. I used to be a very reasonable human.

      Best of luck with caring about what your taxi driver thinks about anything. Hope they tried to sell you some NFTs while they were at it.

        Might be wrong but I don't think we have the lab facilities to do it here? Hence we have to send samples abroad and those labs are understandably busy.

            Anyone heading into town for some morning pints? It's clearly government advice to go on the piss during daylight hours!

                  Speaking of cricket, England offering up some unexpectedly stiff last ditch resistance in Adelaide and have somehow taken the game into the final session on Day 5. Still massive dogs but showing some decent resolve for a change and hopefully augurs for a better showing in Melbourne on Stephens Day.

                  Just to give an example of how dogged they've been, Jos Buttler, one of the best attacking ODI batsmen in the world, has batted 196 balls for 25 runs so far. Your average snail moves at warp speed by comparison.

                    Fairly standard Aussie cricket crowd behaviour imo. It was explained to me when I was down there that cricket was the one sport where spectators got properly rowdy and the bogans would make it their big day out for the year. I didn't really believe this until I went to the 2nd day of the Sydney test that year (27-Dec) and witnessed the entire crowd piling in, each with a slab of tinnies under their arm (24 beers = a slab). By the end of the day, the tinnies were gone and the slabs were on the crowds heads as they roared abuse at all and sundry, especially the match stewards and any female coppers who came within range.

                    An entire drunken crowd with headgear that looked like this:

                    I went with two men from rural Ireland called, respectively, Smoothie Jay and T-Bone who had never been within an asses roar of cricket in their lives. They're now hooked. There was a mobile court at the grounds doing brisk trade fining bogans who had gotten out of hand.

                    It was quite the experience.

                        Shocked the hear religious services are exempt from the 8pm restriction on indoor gatherings. What is the science behind this?

                            People don't typically go on the piss before/after mass. In the same way that food with a pint didn’t stop you getting COVID either.

                              Are you talking about midnight mass on Christmas Eve ? I know of no other post 8pm masses that dont involve virgin or animal sacrifice .

                                    Midnight Mass was cancelled decades ago in my church and moved to 7pm, because it was a drunken mess with people 'getting their mass done' on the way home from the pub.

Terrible plot, terrible cast, terrible acting, a love interest with zero chemistry. It's the type of film that really needed a lead with enough charisma to paper over the cracks in the rest of the film, but Chris Helmsworth is truly dreadful. Both him and Michael Mann should be barred from filmmaking after this.

                                          On the other hand, I watched The Long Goodbye, which is excellent. Really enjoyable, in that lazy quite ridiculous seventies vibe. Some of the scenes are downright hilarious and Elliott Gould is amazing as always, although the stage is stolen by the most ridiculous portrayal of a gangster I've ever seen.
                                          Was very lucky to have had my first viewing of The Long Goodbye in the IFI back when they were doing their Mystery Matinees, loved it. Have watched a bunch of Robert Altman movies over the last year, so much good stuff.

                                          And yes, Blackhat is one of the most boring movies i've seen in years

                                            Same in Kilnamanagh when I was growing up.

                                            There was killings at it one year, the last year I think.

                                            There was an old well known really popular Jewish man in the community, Yan was his name. He used to do Santa every year at Dunne's Stores. He was a holocaust survivor.

                                            He gave out communion at the church.

                                            He was doing that one year at midnight mass and some drunken oul lad stood up and roared anti semitic obscenities at him 'that Jew shouldn't be handing out our bread' type of stuff.

                                            Yan was well liked, so the guy was dragged out of the place and battered.

                                                          Once you're accepting the idea that the chap is handing over the physical body of a god I think we are past incredulity at the lad giving it to you not having ticked all the right boxes on the application form.

                                                                        Well obviously there is that minor detail, but most of the attendees either believe in a lot of that or else just avoid thinking about it in any way just so they can be seen to be there and do what they always do. I wouldn't have thought a priest would just let anyone rock up and dish out what he believes (allegedly) to be sacred to his faith. I'd have thought there were rules against it.

Great to see Tiger back doing his stuff. He's a long way off being physically able for walking for 4 days of tournament golf. You could see him limping and without the cart, he wouldn't have been able to play those two rounds. However, he's still got it.

Tried to get them to give my wife an appointment but they said they are no longer accepting new patients in their practice, which I've heard is a serious problem around Ireland at present, hard to get a new GP.

                                                                                                                        Mrs D3 just had one of his Xmas specials on the tv prompting a rant by me which seemed to catch her off guard.

                                                                                                                          Daly was diagnosed with bladder cancer last year actually. I didn't realise that at all. His swing is just a joy to watch, so free flowing. Always loved his colours and madcap clothes, great to have some individuality in the game. The young lad is the absolute pup of him. Outlandish scoring tbf and they probably should have got a little more coverage.

                                                                                                                          But Tiger is Tiger. He's always been and always will be the draw. Everyone is in his shadow. Just hope that the media attention isn't too much for his son.
