One thing to be aware of given how easily it's done - exchanging one crypto for another is considered a taxable event.

Thought Liverpool were awful last night, especially defensively, but they were absolutely rode by the ref at times. Still don't see how the Vasquez one isn't a foul and red card. If that's not what VAR can be used for then what is? So blatantly obvious and cynical.

Frampton had said before that he'd retire if he lost and for whatever reason I actually believe it. He's done and has been for a while. Herring is a step below the best in the world around 130/135 and took him out pretty handily.

Good on Jamie Moore throwing in the towel btw.

Herring is probably as bad a match as their is for Frampton at that weight. He has 8 inches of a reach advantage.

Herring is big for 130 but Frampton is also undeniably small. Imagine what the likes of Tank Davis would do to him.. He has no business there or at 125 any more. He's done. Right decision.

I think in those exceptional and very limited circumstances the state must attend the funeral in as covid compliant way as it can.

Sound, can you please point us to the part of the regulations in the South that say it's ok to beach them all in these limited circumstances and where it identifies the death of a Garda in the line of duty as one of those circumstances? Because if you can't, what "you think" is completely and utterly irrelevant

Missed the name of the Gold Commander from the day but he's making a bit of a twat of Nolan here. Nolan demanding to know about why/how SF members could act as stewards and direct traffic. Gets told that that's standard practice in NI and the rest of the UK at, for example, parades. Talking about proportionality of response, Nolan demands to know if it's ok to break the law of you only break it a bit. "Nobody expects to get prosecuted for driving at 31 in a 30 zone". Silence from Nolan.

Covid deniers crossed with touchy Shinners who can't handle the slightest bit of criticism. Unbearable.

Tesla, who will be the world's biggest car manufacturer within 20 years when we all switch to electric, are planning to use BTC as currency soon. They have purchased $1.5 BILLION worth, which Seamus alluded to.

So no, it's not a ponzi scheme, a fad or a scam. It's real and it's the future. Enjoy your 0.5% interest savings accounts lads!

This is absolute bullshit put out by Musk. Bitcoin is a) fundamentally unsuitable as a means of exchange because of the slowness of the transaction processing and the fees involved and b) the volatility is completely unacceptable to both buyers and sellers.

Well this has aged well.

There is an enormous difference between what Elon Musk tweets and what happens in the real world.

Great performance from Ireland today, half backs impressive. Henshaw excellent, Earl's very good unlucky with second try as Healy didn't knock on.

This Wales_ France game is the best 20 mins I have seen in a long time.

Healy 100% knocked on.

Aki didn't target him but he led with the shoulder and connected. He needed to either square up or get lower. Those are the rules.

Aki red card thoroughly deserved. Not his first. Everyone knows the rules by now.

Ellis Genge got away with elbowing a defenceless Sexton on the ground under the posts in the last few minutes. Don't know how the TMO didn't see it.

Had a wee hour to myself and listened to the best of REO Speedwagon. Doesn't get better

You listened to two songs for an hour? Madness.

Not sure it's that big a deal for Ireland to be honest. He slows play down a lot and the forwards are motoring quite a bit at the minute. Not sure he'd be first choice going forward.

They're not still produced as far as I'm aware.

So Guinness still supply the surger cans but not the surger unit? Why??

Because the home market was never really nothing more than a gimmick from what I can see. Surger was originally and primarily produced for smaller market locations where there would be demand for Guinness but not enough for publicans to install a full line and commit to going through kegs regularly - small hotels and the like.
