Easier to find a good pen than a RS fan that isn't a tit

Describing the NI economy as a 'basket case'.

Don't get me wrong, it is; but is there no other term that can be used?

(Ironically, it might not be if some guy from NI had put a trade mark on that phrase)

The new shape of Coca Cola cans - mainly because they now no longer hold well in can holders (in cars, etc.), and are too tall for my can crusher. 😔

This might seem pretty niche, but here goes...

Videos of football matches on Youtube that are set to Music.  Drives me mad.  I find a clip of a game I haven't seen, and the commentary and crowd noise has been replaced by some totally inappropriate country pop or soft rock music.  Who the f*** wants to watch a football match to music? Never mind music that doesn't even capture the speed or aggression of the game.  Grinds my gears anyway!!

edit: Here is an example.

WTF is the point in this.  Why on earth would you be bothered doing this?

Or you're looking for a specific clip of anything on Youtube, and all you can find is a million variations of it set to stupid and inappropriate music. Like Stewie and Brian fighting over the money Brian owed. The original is buried somewhere in the search results. (At least it was the last time I looked for it!)

The dogs on the street know it is. The top-heavy public sector and the lack of dynamism in the north's economy are inextricably linked.
