Perhaps these more expensive items are not worth it to you because you are not aware of or do not use the features that make them more expensive.

Even a camera on a phone - if photo's are important to you then there's no way a 100e phone will do the same job as a newer iPhone/Samsung etc.

I swear we should have a version of the "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" game here on boards, except it would have to be "One Degree of Greta Thunberg." You play by mentioning her name in a thread, but you have to create some kind of link between her and the thread topic, no matter how tenuous that link is, or how insane the compulsion to do so makes you look.

Favourite crisp flavour thread?
'You know Greta Thunberg's favourite flavour is... tofu and despair because her future is so bleak AMIRITE???"

Man United megathread?
"I bet Greta Thunberg thinks 'Man United' is actually plan to unite the human race to fight climate change - what a FOOL!"

Vinyl

Where was this craze 10 years ago? It's become quite big and people spending time hunting for that "gem" in the street markets. Are they making profits out buying and selling, fair play I guess if they know what to look for

Does it truly sound better or is that in your imagination?

Climate change denial. I mean, questioning the narrative I understand - but out and out insistence that it's a hoax? Based on what?

Anti semitism - I even saw someone blame Islamist terrorism on the Jews recently just seems like a box some folk feel they should tick.

i "dont get" the way most irish people have a one-up-manship type personality. they always want to be better, delude themselves to think they ARE better. they always want to seem like they're "someone".

i dont get it - but my theory is that it's because we're irish and that's all. nothing special, just irish, so they play up on everything they have to make themselves seem better or more worldly or something.

i dont get it.
i dont get modern "feminism" either.

Something I really don't get:



I don't understand why Greta Thunberg is so triggering & anger inducing to certain cohorts of society, it's weird, like really really weird to me, I don't support or object to her, but every second fb post seems to have a greta meme, it's weird, and I don't think I even want to understand it.

This thread being a perfect example, the most common topic in the first 2 pages is anti-Greta Thunberg posts... Does she really affect you that much?

Instagramers bloggers influencers, and how so many people are brainwashed by them.
I'm talking women in early 30s here, not young kids, worshipping these people. Its bizarre to witness.

100% agree re. Phones and tvs! I'd add cars to that. People in next few weeks out to get their 2020 car. Dont get it

I think it's the authoritive way she talks. I listened to her first speech and wouldn't listen to her again because i find her irritating, but i don't hate her nor like her

People spending €50-60k on a car.

Buy pretty much the same car, 3 years old for around 1/3 of the price and you've about €35k to spend on other stuff.

the car thing is exactly what i said about the irish one-up-man-ship - people go and spend thousands and put themselves into debt to get the best car so they can think in their own head that they are "better" than their neighbour.

horrible... i call it "little mans thoughts".... although women are as bad.worse even when you consider fashion/makeup/wanting to be the "hottest in the room".

they do it cos they think they are better than everyone else.
the irony is, they do that, then they are in debt and definitely no better than the neighbour down the road in a banger with money in his bank
