The French man trying his chances with the Bean an Tí in the Kerrygold butter ad.

That one followed this one of course, from Kerrygold, who is taking the horse to France

Can we forget Miranda, that gave us Horslips

Quote from: Jell 0 Biafra on December 01, 2023, 09:51:09 PMInflation is defined in economics as the rate of increase in prices. 

It has come down, even as prices continue to rise, albeit more slowly.

Richard Nixon was the first president to use the third derivative to advance his case for reelection, stating that the rate of increase of inflation was decreasing. In other words, the rate of the rate of the rate at which the purchasing power of money is decreasing was decreasing.

General discussion / Re: Hamas launch attack on Israel

There were some people shot by Hamas in Jerusalem and an Isreali shot the attackers. Then the IDF arrived and shot him (maybe this should be in the wtf thread)
Watching the report on RTÉ Prime Time there, it suggested that the Windsor redevelopment had only used half the money that the IFA was supposed to get and that the rest was never paid. This is a genuine reason for a gripe on that side of the house.

Any citizen, especially a child, is entitled to privacy in relation to their health. There should be no expectation of hourly bulletins to satisfy certain people's agenda.

Quote from: brokencrossbar1 on November 30, 2023, 12:24:56 PMAnyone with young ones driving around the border counties be wary of some of the insurance policies from the English insurance companies. Some of them have restrictions for under 25s which limits the cover to NI only. Once they cross the border there's no insurance.

They need to stop such policies being sold. Back in the day the Stormont government required policies sold in NI to be valid in the 26 counties and then of course in the EU such a restriction would not be legal. There are loose ends like this from Brexit that have not been properly addressed.

Quote from: Tony Baloney on November 30, 2023, 10:59:35 AMReduce taxpayer-funded pension contributions to fund public sector salary increases.

That would not be an increase, it would be a rearrangement to give the impression of short term gain.

Not so good for NI teachers to be paid much less than Wales!

Quote from: smort on November 28, 2023, 12:50:55 PMJust start the season a bit later and let county players play more football with their clubs
What do the club players do for most of the year then? Are we really trying to cram club leagues and Championships from late July onwards?

The idea that club players should only play as much as county players are available is madness. There must be some form of competition not involving county players

Did something broadly similar for our Juniors last year.
Quite easy to implement and monitor.
Although we couldn't field for a number of games, it definitely set a marker for how serious we were.
Leaving out the 'without management approval' next year, though. 
Head would be wrecked with whatsapps 20 minutes before matches with lads asking to go travelling or to family weddings or to the vet with shitey-arse excuses.
We're going all out next year...

Nothing worse than a pet with a shitey-arse.

A spouse with a shitey-arse, perhaps?
