    It’s like people forget how utterly captured the media in like of us and uk is by their intelligence services when it comes to stuff like this
    Pro tip- ignore blue ticks

          That's interesting. I'd noticed the name change but wondered why so tyvm. We go there as pre theatre if we can make it, has been a while, poxy covid, so cant wait to go back. I've been making Pho a lot at home but it never stacks up to it obvs

            I found that the little Japanese restaurant Takara on Abbey Street near Jervis Luas stop has nice noodle dishes and a really nice atmosphere.

                  I’ve heard that said a lot. But Taekwondo was developed post WW2 so I’d assume it’s a myth. Or based a legend rather than practice.

                  Fowls like older military methods would be easier and more effective.

                  That pages digs them up constantly. Some really bizarre stuff. Surely they know deep down it’s nonsense. Would kinda like to see it in person and talk to those in the cult levels of buy in.

                                  Saw one a couple of weeks ago where some guy with the surname Buddle called him Cunt.

                                  He replied with 'Cuddle'

                                            He could:

                                            1. Call for international help, which would undoubtedly be forthcoming

                                            or

                                            2. Point out the Western hysteria for its own purposes and tell people to cop on


                                            He chose (2) from how he sees it. I realise you now need to move on now to doubting the actual Ukrainian president's words, but it really just highlights the misinformation. Its a far more difficult proposition than simply repeating Murdoch Sky News nonsense, or the words of a UK prime minister trying to save his job due to treating 10 Downing Street as his own private Ibiza.

                                            I would note that I pointed out all last week that this is part of a standard series of military buildups, which was also his words. There might always be dodgy Russian motivations, but there are also always dodgy UK/US motivations in these stories.

                                                    There was a Malay place on baggot st back in the day. May not be there. Pretty vague I know.

                                                    I remember hearing that most of the “Chinese’ takeaways/restaurants in Ireland where initially opened by Malaysian immigrants.
                                                    Obviously everyone knows the generic Chinese takeaway menu isn’t Chinese food. But I was surprised to hear that szechuan pepper dishes where particular elusive in Dublin. Not uncommon here. Willing to open up a mail order szechuan chain.

                                                              There was a great Malay place on Parnell St, other side of North Great George's St from Kimchi Hophouse. Not sure if it's still

Haven't been into his place in town but he used to have his food truck at Decathalon which is very close to my job so I was a regular. Very disappointed when he moved it as lunch options are very limited where I am.

                                                                    Just walked past that Takara place on Abbey St. Must have been about 20 people queuing at it.

News is bits of current information that fit into a broader understanding of the world. That broader understanding influenced by history, by local understanding, by determining competing motivations and ideologies, and projecting future trends. News is a pretty superfluous, but useful, perspective, that needs aggregation and perspective to understand its meaning. Is my considered opinion. Good journalism is meant to be informed by these broader perspectives, but I don't think that's the way of modern journalism.

At one game a day it's hard to get carried away with and even if you have an aversion to it it is really easy to ignore.

At one game a day it's hard to get carried away with and even if you have an aversion to it it is really easy to ignore.

                                                                                                                    How does youtube music or google music work ? Is there a similar app ? Happy to partake in Spotify removal revolution . There is something hippy about it
                                                                                                                    I've never used Spotify so can't compare but I think it's excellent. Really great interface.

                                                                                                                    This was prob a Spotify feature but the 'Liked' playlist is deadly. Just give a song a thumbs up and it enters the playlist.

                                                                                                                    Setting up genre playlists is super easy too.

                                                                                                                    What I love about it too is, when your last song on a playlist finishes it just keeps playing tunes in that genre. A lot of my playlists are built that way, adding new tracks that randomly play.

                                                                                                                    You do not have permission to view this gallery.

                                                                                                                      Ended up adding and adding to it due to the radio feature and now it would prob do a 20 mile run lol
