General discussion / Spacey Unmasked
May 07, 2024, 11:30:27 PM
Did anybody see the Spacey unmasked programme on channel 4 tonight? I didn't see it as my attention was taken up by the Champons League and Eurovision and Spacey unmasked on all at the same time.

I just caught the end of it on channel 4 + 1. While Spacey was cleared of a lot of the charges against him. He did end up having to fork out 30 million dollars to the makers of house of cards.
General discussion / The Hewitt line continues.
May 07, 2019, 06:41:38 AM
An heir for Hewitt, hooray. I see none of you savages had the good sense to mark yesterdays great news with a thread of its own. Prince DeSean is doing fine by all accounts.
General discussion / RTE player Beta
December 20, 2018, 11:47:03 PM
I use RTE player a lot to get my news, live sports etc. The service was working well up until yesterday when they changed unannounced to a new beta system. Now the player just plays for 10 seconds and stops for ten seconds non stop. Is anyone else having these issues? Is it just my computer? Or is it just teething problems for the new service? I might get in touch with rte but just thought I would try on here first to see if I was alone in having problems.
General discussion / Bill Cosby going to jail.
April 26, 2018, 11:13:52 PM
Bill Cosby has been found guilty of drugging and molesting a woman.

He of course faced many other similar accusations. It is about time he was locked up.
General discussion / Drug taking in athletics
August 29, 2017, 04:39:19 PM

The above is the internet address of an article claiming that 30% of athletes at the 2011 world athletics championships had taken banned substances in their athletics careers. Shocking to some if true, this is a sad indicator of how low the morals of modern day athletes are
General discussion / Pint Baby

Your thoughts on pint baby. Who else treats their kids to a pint of the black stuff?

That other GAA discussion forum is no more. Good riddance I say. You couldn't spwak your mind there at all.
GAA Discussion / Dublin V Tipperary AIMHF

Tipp should win this. Dublin 0-1 to 0-0
General discussion / Assassination of family in France
September 08, 2012, 12:22:24 PM
I find this case to be intriguing so I am starting a topic on it. A husband and wife murdered in the company of their children one of whom is seriously injured. A woman in their company hardly known to the little girl possibly an Iraqi or of Iraqi origin also murdered in the car with them. A French cyclist passing by also shot to wliminate him as a potential witness.

One theory is: All this is discovered by a plain clothes member of the British military. An RAF man out for a cycle. Given the Iraqis were assassinated and discovered by a plain clothes member of the British Military, Britain having been at war with Iraq in the recent past, some people are beginning to think the British had them under surveillence. The RAF man seeing the injured child collapse on the road in front of him was obliged to call it in. He might not have if he hadn't seen an injured child.  It was a competent maybe professional assassination with no chances taken, no adult witnesses left alive.

The other theory is that the family were rich when they were in Iraq and their could be a lot of money connected to the family. Killing off one half of the family would make the other half a lot richer.

Does anybody have any opinions on this?

General discussion / Tia Sharpe - Murder
August 11, 2012, 04:51:37 PM
It looks like her own family killed her. The police searched the house three times before finding the body. The granny probably knew what was going on all along imho. It was a very strange story to follow on the news.
Hurling Discussion / Munster under 21 hurling final
August 08, 2012, 08:36:25 PM
Clare just beat Tipp with a last minute goal 1-16 to 1-14

Sub Niall Arthur got the winner. Too much excitement today with the show jumping. Paddy Barnes still to go.
For only three euro a question Bongo will reveal by text all the answers to the questions you've answered to safeguard passwords over the years, name of your first pet etc. I don't know who will want to know what they already know for three euro a question???

It makes you wonder who has access to all that info.
General discussion / Big weekend of sports
June 23, 2012, 12:50:02 AM
I already have Ireland VFrance and SA v NZ from the under 20 world cup in the bag alobg with Germany v Greece in the Euros. Tomorrow it is Ireland v the All Blacks at 8.35 followed by Dublin v Kilkenny at 5 pm in the hurling. Then the big Spain v France game. Sunday is Monaghan V Down  foot ball and Cork v Tipp in the hurling at 2 & 4. Finishing off with England v Italy.

I know there are other rugby internationals and a grand prix on as well but I need to get out a bit.
#15 that amount of carry on at all. That was the headline on the BBC news website. I couldn't think of a more untrue headline.
"I really like this turkey and I like this ham. What I'd really like is to see the front door for months."

What is this cheap ad all about? Is that what he says? Is it really Santa? What a poor effort. :o
General discussion / Socrates age 57 RIP
December 04, 2011, 11:01:38 AM
The former Brazilian legend Socrates died of an intestinal infection at the Albert Einstein Hospital.
The News of the World paid £150,000 for information about who was fixing matches from the man who organised the match fixing? Is that right or wrong?
General discussion / Chinese Toddler knocked over
October 19, 2011, 12:22:59 PM
Disturbing images in this clip

This is really bad. A cctv clip from CHina of a girl being knocked over and then deliberately ignored and run over by the back hweels of the van. She is then ignored by passers by and left bleeding on the road before being run over by a truck. Eventually after many more people pass by as she is haemoraging blood on the road a street cleaner stops to help. The street cleaner takes the piss a bit.
