Thankfully we never stayed in any real dungeons. Halls in 1st year then Stranmillis and Holylands after that. The worst I ever was in was on Tate's Avenue that lads in the class were in. The tank in the loft flooded over Xmas and when they can came it was soaked, all the plaster came off the walls and the house looked like it was ready for demolition. The landlord refused to fix it as he blamed them. It wasn't fit for human habitation. We used to sit drinking in their living room dressed for outdoors and they eventually burnt the mantlepiece and stair rods and banister in the fire to keep warm.

They weren't from Ballycastle by any chance?  ;)
It was a gatherup house full of Prods but safe to say there wasn't much church going out of them! Youll have to name names on these Ballycastle hallions.

I'm feeling nostalgic for the Mucksavages thread (may it RIP).  :D

Anyone know how long ago that it was accessible? One of the Board's all time highlights in my time on here. In those days the Board was blocked by my employers firewall, mobile phones were either too fiddly or slow to upload (or crippling from a data perspective) so it used to be home from work and straight onto the laptop to see what gems had been added. ;D

German police shut down huge child pornography network

Quote
German police have said they had shut down "one of the biggest darknet child pornography platforms in the world" and arrested four of its members in a series of raids in mid-April.

The platform, named as "Boystown", had existed since 2019, counted over 400,000 members and was "set up for the worldwide exchange of child pornography", federal police said in a statement.

The darknet forum allowed users to communicate with others and share graphic image and video content which included "serious sexual abuse of toddlers", the statement said.

Three men between the ages of 40 and 64 were arrested in seven raids in Germany, while a further suspect was detained in Paraguay on the request of German authorities.

Shouldn't be surprised that something like this exists, but 400,000+ "members" is a staggering yet sober number.
"I can't be arsed any more; too much ignorance, bigotry, dogma, idiocy & retreat from reason"

Never beat the deeler

Reading through that last few pages really brings me back to the shit holes that I lived in/stayed in on nights out back in the day. Did the Halls the first year, stayed in Shaftesbury, the woman at the time stayed in one of the towers. Jeez they were some mess!

When I got my long trousers and moved to a house we did Wellesley Ave and then Wolsley Street. It may as well have been South Armagh, East Tyrone and South Derry with the wee posh Down f**kers sprinkled around. On Wolsley street there were 3 houses from Cross and surrounding area, 2 from Tyrone and 1 Down. I remember one night the Tyrone house went on fire....some craic! 

The free for all in ‘Shaws, always a f**king queue but Tommy on the door let us in if we bunked it!  Place full of jersey huggers and hallions. Some nights drinking with Bellaghy and Errigal Ciaran boys after Ulster championship games!  Then down to Hatfield for out of date beers at half price on Carry out at 3am ;D

You wouldn't have kept a Jack Russell in some of the kips on Wellesley Ave.

We were actually really lucky. Right down the Lisburn road end beside the 4 in Hand....was a grand spot. Used to play 45 with a few old boys in the pub until one of the lads landed in with his gear bag....was ‘advised’ not to come back ;D

Would have attended the odd quiz in the 4 in Hand on a Monday night if trying to behave. Decent spot but certainly not the cosmopolitan crowd you'd get on the Lisburn Road these days.

I met wee posh Down f"ckers at a wedding once. Looked down at me because I was from down the country. Praise the Lord for the south Armagh ones that night. In fairness I have met others from Co Down who are sound out, those posh tw"ts can feck off, all the same. ;D

A Jack Russell would have been safer up those streets than down near Renshaws, bit too close to Kam Wah in botanic....

Good old Tommy, "Lads f**k off over to Dukes for an hour  would you and I'll give you a shout when it calms down a bit"

What part of Down is posh?  Other than Holywood, donaghadee I'm struggling!

The Hatfield in the mid 90's was nothing like it is now. You needed to know the special knock at the side door to get an out of hours carryout of warm, out of date beer at above ordinary prices...

Only God has any business looking down on a South Armagh person.

Dear god I forgot about the Kam Wah! Wee auld fella used to sit out the back and shout at everyone.
Place was stinking.

I was never a huge renshaws fan, but does anyone remember the Crescent on Sandy Row? Jeez it was some spot...2 quid in, drinks about 80p. Sawdust on the floor and and a very dodgy management.
The attic in laverys was class in the mid 90s too, a wee dingy nightclub.
