Watched Stan & Ollie last night and really enjoyed it. Serious performances from Steve Coogan and John C Reilly as the pair after a while you forget they're not really Laurel and Hardy..

Just watched it.  Beautiful.

Early doors.

There is also a special soccer tense -eg  he's come in and he's crossed it and I've headed it in

That’d be the perfect tense.

There's also the use of the present tense instead of perfect conditional(?).

'The keeper saves that they're in the final' instead of 'if the keeper had ... they'd be ...'

Another of these:

UK to EU: So, we have voted to leave
EU to OK: That's a shame, OK what are your proposals?

We don't have any, we're leaving.
- Yes, but what about the Good Friday Agreement and the Northern Irish border?

- It's an international treaty you signed, remember? Look, tell you what, why doesn't NI stay in the Customs Union, job done.

NEVER! You're not splitting the UK up.
- OK what do you propose?

Why are you being intransigent?
- What? OK look, we need to sort this and you haven't proposed anything, what about the whole of the UK staying in the Customs Union?

- FFS what then? This is your mess, tell us what you actually want.

Why are you being intransigent?
- Will you please just tell us what you want.

OK if you're going to be like that, we want a backstop added to the Withdrawal Agreement.
- Finally, yes OK, that's fine. But remember this is your idea. Shall we sign the Withdrawal Agreement off? Once we've done that we cannot reopen it in the time left.

Yes, sign it off.
- Done.

Ummm, we couldn't get it through parliament so we need to reopen the withdrawal agreement and change the backstop.
- We said we wouldn't do that, but OK we might be able to do something. We're listening, what do you want to change it to?

Alternative arrangements.
- What?

Alternative arrangements.
- What the actual f**k is that?

Don't know, just something different.
- Look, the backstop was your idea. We reluctantly agreed. Now you don't want it anymore and instead want it changed to something that doesn't exist?

Why are you being so intransigent?
- It literally does not exist, what don't you understand about that?

Stop bullying us. How about having a backstop that isn't a backstop?
- Oh f**k the f**k off you absolute idiots!

I'm just wondering what's in the "Military Challenge Edition" of the Bible.

A billionaire diamond trader died after ‘suffering a heart attack’ during a penis enlargement operation at a private Paris clinic. Ehud Arye Laniado, 65, had visited an unidentified health centre on the Avenue des Champs-Elysees in the French capital on Saturday. But complications during the procedure proved fatal, with Belgian media reporting that the gem expert’s heart attack occurred when a substance was injected into his penis...

He got through the first 65 years of his life with the equipment he was born with. Why now? :o

Yes - most fellas make do with a red BMW or something.

I can only assume it's because otherwise savvy posters don't know how.

Not at all. They'll just fall back on 'lookit how much they want to charge us. It's a disgrace Joe'.

Indeed. But I'm sure the mice and rats in their death throes appreciate the fact that we're not taking pleasure from it.

Jasus Seaf you must think we're all retired or are Senior managers here ;D
There is way too much news these days
There is chaos everywhere

It's the end of the economic system.

I remember as a child hearing about McDermotts Department Store in Castlerea. It was fabulous in the 60s
according to everyone who spoke about it. 
It collapsed sometime in the late 70s when the last economic system collapsed

It’s a good job you copy and paste all of that news in case we miss it!! What do you do for a living?? You seem to have serious time on your hands.

I advise companies on how to get through
the next crash and I do stuff on Raidio ná Gaeltachta

You never know who might be interested on the board.
Financial Risk affects everyone .

I for one enjoy your in depth analysis and posting of articles that normally we wouldn't be able to see.

Me too.

I do know them. Nice people. Two of them were in my class through primary school. There were about 11 brothers and sisters in the family but it seems only six in the syndicate. I hope that works out OK.
