How many of these have you watched?

I watched "Fire Maidens from Outer Space" made in 1955. So bad, it's hilarious!

General discussion / Northern nationalists versus ?

I've never once objected to a single post about any victim/s of the Troubles, and this forum has been filled with them over the years

So why do you object?

The mindset it takes to write the bolded part there boggles

Sadly there is a concerted strategy by a certain breed of northern nationalists to dehumanise "themmuns" and dismiss crucial truths which threaten the narrative of Sinn Fein through the construction of a Putinesque world of ultra-cynicism whereby anybody who voices these crucial and inconvenient truths is vilified

The irony is that those who dismiss voices of others as having "cynical motive" are the very people who buy into that Putinesque world of ultra-cynicism themselves, and they cannot comprehend how anybody might actually look at things through such framings as basic right and wrong

The breed of northern nationalists I reference above claim to want honesty, but in practice, they want the exact opposite, they want the truth swept under the carpet

As a northern nationalist myself, I don't understand this post. Perhaps Syd could elaborate?

Let's start the conversation. My prediction:

Armagh 0-13 Donegal 3-15

Hope I am very wrong.

General discussion / The Official Hiking Thread
« on: September 01, 2020, 12:51:18 PM »
This thread is for you to tell us about your favourite walking/hiking routes. This month I climbed Slieve Gullion for the first time. It's a very short walk from the upper car park, about 30 mins up and 20 mins coming down.

Starting in Newcastle, Slieve Donard is a great hike - half a day.

If I walked to walk the highest peak in the Sperrins, then where would I start?

GAA Discussion / Armagh v Dublin 1977 All-Ireland Final
« on: May 16, 2020, 05:03:36 PM »
Good article in today's Irish News on Gerry O'Neill, manager of the Armagh team in 1977.

There will a whole new group of people realising the Martin O'Neill's older brother managed Armagh.

I probably knew this but forgot it. Armagh played Dublin in Parnell Park as a warm up, lost narrowly, but gave enough clues away to let the Dubs come up with a cunning plan for the actual final.

GAA Discussion / County Stars turning their hand to Acting
« on: May 10, 2020, 11:58:13 AM »
Following on from Paul Mescal's success in Normal People, which ex-county star from your county would make a great actor? (Tyronies - no need to mention Philip Jordan)

1) Who would make a great actor?
2) Who would make an awful actor?

GAA Discussion / The Drop Kick
« on: April 15, 2020, 12:54:08 PM »
Many many many years ago I remember being taught the drop kick by an uncle. Have these disappeared completely?

Can anyone remember seeing a drop kick in recent times, or have a video link?

Is there any conference call software that is free and easy to use from a smart phone?

Up north, Unionists are starting to make noises about how best to celebrate the establishment of a british border in Ireland.

Anyone on GAABoard want to join in this 100 year anniversary?

General discussion / Aer Lingus - any advice?
« on: February 12, 2020, 09:43:48 PM »
At the start of January I booked flights for a number of people costing over 1,000 but a week later I had to cancel them. The flights were to USA in April but my travel insurance only covers Europe.

Aer Lingus refunded the tax (about 70) but refuse to offer me alternative flights. They say that they were cheap tickets so I've basically lost over 1,000.

Anyone any advice?

Jokes, cartoons and calling me a dumbass is also appreciated, as it will help ease the pain. As will similar stories, lol.

General discussion / Ideas for the next big Reality TV show
« on: July 29, 2019, 06:04:04 PM »
How about a show with 10 men and 10 women all in their seventies, living together in a hot climate, sleeping together in one big dormitory. The contestants face daily challenges, and the winning couple get a viagra pill and lubricant.

General discussion / Things I do not understand
« on: May 29, 2019, 11:30:52 AM »
1) How does the wind rushing over and under wings make a plane fly?

2) How does a mobile phone still work perfectly when on the move?

3) How does the sun's light travel though the vacuum of space?
