Having the train to myself for the commute.

I concur, my bus and train journeys during the first lockdown.







Both of you take a shower and some breadth mints and stop blaming everything on the pandemic.

General discussion / Re: Nature - nurture. Male attitudes towards women

Iíd a neighbour whoís house backed on to ours, this was a new build so no proper fence up. Came home from work (night shift) around 7.40am pulled the car into the drive, across the way I could look right into their kitchen, the wife (both Christians) was booting the shit outta her husband!

I was stuck in my car in shock! Out came the pan and she was whacking him! Was nuts! I eventually got out and made a lot of noise so that they would stop, she didnít bat an eyelid.

Plenty of crazy women about but that seems to be an unfashionable topic ATM.

Nature is what we think of as pre-wiring and is influenced by genetic inheritance and other biological factors. Nurture is generally taken as the influence of external factors after conception, e.g., the product of exposure, life experiences and learning on an individual.

To get away from the other thread and allow it to be related specifically on topic as itís taken a turn for the worst on some posts.

Do males have an inherent behaviour towards woman or is it learnt?

I think nature and Nuture  play a part in in a fully formed adult with possibly your upbringing have a bigger influence. In the case of the event last week I think thatís a reminder in society some people are just broken and behave like savages. In the case of cold blooded killers like Richard Kullinski or Harold Shipman there is a history of physical and mental abuse. In the case of Ted Bundy who prayed on vulnerable women same thing with abandonment as well. Lack of emotional empathy seems to be the link between them all.
But early to say how much this is relative to the terrible tragedy of last week, we wonít know to the killer is convicted about his personal background but Jesus itís hard to comprehend how this could happen. I always associated this kind of thing with other places and not Ireland but the last couple of years has been disconcerting.

Watched Sambo on tg4 last night, very touching and thought provoking on the educational system back then. At least we have moved on from those dark days. One depressing aspect was the reality check of where we belong on the hurling spectrum something Terence eluded to. The program rekindled the hype and euphoria in Antrim and Ulster that team brought. Never thought that winding forward over 30 years later we still havenít reached another final, still it was great viewing and well worth a watch.

Very toothless without the African duo. Think we are in for our traditional post Christmas slump.

Here is some advise. Skull had previously shared this, but to elaborate. One of the first things covid patients get along with other meds is Vit D. They infact get alot of it depending on bloods test, but typically up to 20,000 mgs.  Almost 90% of patients admitted with covid are tested low in vit D. And one of the characteristics of obesity is low vit D.
I had been on approximately 500mgs per day but advised by my G.P. friend and colleague to up it to 4000 mgs per day in winter, early spring.

That's been known since the very early days, I always found it odd that people were not advised to take vit d supplements as a preventative measure. Supplements are readily available over the counter. Yet it never made it into any hse or public safety documentation. Maybe there's a reason for its omission, but I don't know what it is.

People are not advised to take vit D because there is no patent on it. Thatís no good for the Pfizerís of this world.

Very valid points by all but the feeling in Dunloy in regards to the last time in Newry is we just played sh..e and there was still only three points in it when Nigel Elliott was sent off very harshly. The narrative is we must learn how to win against meat grinder teams in conditions that favor teams like S/N. Our last good team had no problem with the robust mindset Derry teams bring so these lads are at a crossroads. Call me overconfident but I think we have enough to get over the line. Hats off to Tommygun on highlighting most Antrim players Aerial ball winning abilities, itís been a big problem for years.

As a Liverpool fan Iím worried about this new interim manager. Looks like the circus is drawing to an end and prima Donnaís will be traded for some work horses.

What a brilliantly bonkers game of football that was.
Great stuff.

Way better than the 3 to 5 nil it should have been.
Yes and No. Fantastic game to watch especially if you were a neutral but as a fan itís kind of worrying that we are missing loads of chances, and while itís great the chances are being created I would rather that game had of been wrapped up by half time last night like it should have been. Leeds game was the same, we should have won that game by 5 or 6. Maybe Iím being harsh but against better teams theyíll need to be taking those chances.

Been like that for a while now TBH, I would like to see stats for goals to chances created. Weíve got to be the worst in the PL and I still think thereís room in the squad for a more clinical finisher.
