How bad is Eastern Europe etc

+1000 A lot of this comes from a Yank centred view of the world and we in Ireland buy into their monumental bullsh1t too bloody much. It's easily forgotten that as far as many rights and certainly women's rights many nations in the East of Europe had them before the Americans did. Hell maternity lea

Virtue Signalling as a College Course

Though the religious in Ireland have largely gone away, it appears the same percentage of holier than thou crawtumpers haven't. The loud and often hypocritical standard bearers of the morality de jour seem to be constants in any society going way back

True. Me taking phone pics.. :D https://memegenerator.net/img/images/600x600/15157835/cross-eyed-steve-buscemi.jpg The case is 35mm. The Borgel cases generally came in IIRC 32mm and 35mm. I've seen a couple smaller, but none larger so far. I suppose at that early stage of the wristwatch game they

Forgiving/Unforgiving

Fear. A fear of loss of suburban stability. A fear of loss of family if one exists. A fear of financial loss, mostly in the case of divorced men. Base emotional cowardess. The act is scummy and you were scummy as it were around that act of betrayal as you say let yourself down and her of course. I

Forgiving/Unforgiving

Now in no way am I making excuses for it, but it can depend on the circumstances around it. In any relationship it takes two to tango and if one partner has dialled out of the relationship eg emotionally and/or sexually and is making no effort to make changes in that relationship to bring it back on

One does not have to be a male "feminist" to treat women as equals. Though this is an all too common misconception. And considering current feminism's credo can be handily summed up as women are always agentless victims and it's always men's/patriarchy's fault, I would suggest any man who has read

Forgiving/Unforgiving

You'll note I put that in parentheses to qualify it. To illustrate no anger involved, merely description. I just love how people trot out the cut price pop psychology they've learned from daytime TV and reckon that's an argument. Indeed to take from the same cut price pop psychology handbook that's

[Caveat to the above post. I'm weird] Today as we head into the Autumn season, Faaaaalll for any American folks, I decided World War one was "in". Current is soooo not. :D https://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/attachment.php?attachmentid=527735&stc=1&d=1601322749 1914(or 15, can't exactly recall) 15 je

I have to say I much prefer the Tudor hands than the Mercedes hands on Rolex(or anything else with Mercedes hands)

What I'm quite sure others are getting tired of is someone coming into the conversation, getting wound up(no pun) over feck all, firing out a barrage of snide remarks and not letting it go when they were asked and given leeway to. There's no need for this schoolyard stuff among adults. This ends now

The 1970s - The Decade That Taste Forgot?

Actually one thing I noticed back then on fishing trips with my dad to the West and such was how things were often a year or six months behind Dublin. The films in the local cinemas and the like. Given that often enough especially in the early 70's films were often already 6 months old before they g

The 1970s - The Decade That Taste Forgot?

Oh and well I know it C. I even knew and appreciated it at the time. Even growing up in and around a middle class background, private education and all that, among my peers I was one of the very few who had gone on foreign holidays and would have been ahead of even those on the number of places I wa

I've only seen the Stowa in the flesh so not much help there, but it looked like a very nice watch, especially at the price point. IIRC there are a couple of folks around here that have had or still have Stowas and I think there's a Dornbluth too in the mix

Jesus, away for work for a couple of hours... Indeed and good advice that should be taken, not least by yourself. Opinions are fine, we all have quite diverging ones. Jumping in and getting snotty and suggesting other people should "suck it up" among other things, is not. No more please. OK let's
