General discussion / Music - your first love & most recent discovery
« on: June 20, 2021, 10:50:24 AM »
Great article in the Sunday Times Culture mag asking a few of their writers to share 'which record rocked their world growing up and their most recent musical discovery'.

One of the earliest songs I can remember loving was Bucks Fizz - Speed it up, there's been plenty in between but 2 perma favourites- Waterfall by Stone Roses & One by Metallica that made a huge impression are still the go to.

Recent discovery is more taxing, I find nearly anything new I listen to is 'old' but I've only recently discovered it! Honourable mention to The Acid Runner by ilario Alicante - great dance tune

General discussion / Dental work / Cost
« on: June 04, 2021, 03:23:08 PM »
I was recently quoted 2,000 for a solitary tooth implant for a molar. I unfortunately had work like this done in my 20s by the same practice and it was available as an NHS / part payment option. Now they apparently can't do this type of work and can only refer you on, same parent company surprise surprise. At least the Dentist had the decency to look embarrassed when I snorted my derision and gave him a bit of a quizzing. I could go to Turkey and get a Dick Emery set for that ffs.

General discussion / Will you take the Coronavirus Vaccine?

The amount of people I've encountered personally and online who are very sceptical about taking any Coronavirus Vaccine is a bit alarming.

My choice - Whiplash

I avoided that movie for years because I thought there's no way that's going to be good, I mean Drumming ffs

General discussion / Graham Linehan on Twitter / Trans debate
« on: May 08, 2020, 08:34:57 PM »
I feel like I'm missing something in this whole transgender argument thing. He's largely been ostracised by his friends and enemies, the main thrusts of his arguments seem fairly sensible to me?? ??? Cant say I've delved too deep into the various Twitter threads on it as the PCness of it would drive u mad. I wouldn't even know how to be PC in a discussion about it tbh.

General discussion / Health Insurance & Pre existing conditions
« on: March 03, 2019, 02:28:44 PM »
Technically or if it came to disputing a claim legally, when does a pre-existing condition begin - at referral from a GP to a specialist for investigation or when you are officially diagnosed by said Specialist?

This is in North.

BBC News - Kosovo's army dreamers enrage their Serbian neighbours
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-46551471

Headline of story in today's Irish News - Serbia warns of armed response to Kosovo army.

I'm sure the Russians will be watching on intently.

General discussion / Irish Dancing
« on: November 05, 2018, 10:03:57 PM »
I'll freely admit knowing next to nothing about Irish Dancing but I'd be ambivalent enough about what I do see.  Is it a big addition to Irish cultural life? Is it culture, a sport, a beauty pagent. It does seem to attract a lot of competitive parents.

General discussion / Hypnotism
« on: September 01, 2018, 07:21:18 PM »
Anyone ever used Hypnosis in a serious way - Quit smoking or the like? (Not running round thinking you're a chicken) Would possibly be interested in applying it in a sporting sense and would love to hear any experiences.

US boy, 9, killed himself after homophobic bullying, mum says - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-45323933

That's just so horribly tragic but leaves a few questions in my mind.

General discussion / UK v Russia
« on: March 17, 2018, 01:20:21 PM »
What do people think of this? The UK seemed to have reached conclusions long before anything has been proven. Woe betide anybody who doesn't weigh in behind the jingoistic Government line. The rapidity & rashness  of the response is worrying imo. Boris and the Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson 2 utter clowns as per normal.
