The media have handled the death of this poor lad disgracefully. Zero accountability as per usual. No repercussions for it. No apologies for crying wolf and getting it wrong. The kunts will sensationalise anything to get clicks.

Try and call them out for acting the kunt and then you get hit with the old "free speech" and press censorship argument.

There should be heavy fines for throwing fake/sensationalist news or factually incorrect news into the public domain. That will make them think twice about doing a bit of due diligence.

Assuming everything is still f**ked come Feb and you lads are still at Level 4 or 5, how easy is it for a non-EU citizen to pass through Dublin airport? She’s been living under lockdown pretty much since March so she’s safe, and will more than happily self-isolate for 14 days with her grandkids in our house ( :uhoh: ). Then what’s the craic with getting her north? Any laws against that?
Tell her "fcuk off, we're full"
:lol: :lol:

The missus and I will have been locked in a house with 3 monsters for the best part of a year by that stage. Her catching up on granny duties = us going out for dinner/pints, or even a night or two away :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: (covid-permitting).

I'd consider having Jedward as au-pairs for the month at that point.

Cushing syndrome is from taking loads of steroids and fücks you up good by the looks of it. Apparently rarely from a tumour. What was up with him that he was taking so.much steroids that he got that.
Cushing’s disease is usually caused by a pituitary adenoma that makes your adrenal glands over stimulated
Cushing’s syndrome is caused by taking long term steroids
He has the Cushing’s classic moon face appearance.
Sounds like an Addisonian crisis from that which would suggest Cushing’s syndrome. Basically your adrenal glands atrophy because you’re taking so much steroid that they don’t need to produce cortisol anymore. Then when you have trauma or stress they can’t ramp up cortisol and you’re f**ked.
I wondered had the steroid bit impacted on the ability of steroids to help him. Fücking hell I am so brainy

Yep. I have been in rooms with otherwise sensible people crapping on about the West Bank and Nablus and blockades with about as surface a knowledge you could have. They cross party lines and they are invariably completely misinformed. It's wrapped up in the PLO/IRA bit and the peace keeping soldiers were always good for a story about how the Palestinian women who sold them trinkets had an uncle shot while riding around on a cow. The whole thing is a shit show but we long ago took sides
When I was younger (and more of a troll) I used to bring up LGBT rights in the middle-east to piss that crowd off.

Nothing beats watching some young keffiyah clad cúnt justify throwing gay lads off buildings.

UK government talking about introducing a tier 4 restriction level, just after implimenting their 3-tier model.
No-one's plans are working out.


Mind you, they explicitly didn't outline any kind of plan that involves almost full lockdown like here. Seems almost wistful thinking that there wouldn't be a situation where they'd need to force shops to close, particularly with their regional approach.

Well, you could say the same for lots of things - milk, chips, pizzas whatever.

Maybe limit people to potatoes and water for the duration.

Absolutely you could but I think for ease saying groceries comes under one heading doesn't take from my point.

The statement 'clothes aren't essential' as a standalone statement doesn't exactly stand up to scrutiny, does it? In the same way saying 'groceries aren't essential' is a more extreme example.

It’s not that clothes aren’t essential.
It’s that buying clothes isn’t an essential reason to leave your house.

Fair point on the alcohol but they probably figured a prolonged lockdown without drink in Ireland would be doomed to failure

Was talking to the brother in the states yesterday and he says most of the schools in his area haven't reopened. A few private schools that could afford a serial testing program went back but the public schools are still at home. Says daycare numbers have been greatly reduced too. Women dropping out of the workforce like flies.

The buying process for both is different. People pick up, put down, try on etc cloths. You normally don't lick the bottle until it's yours......all yours.

I get that clothes are trickier than groceries because some items and some shops really are non essential but basic clothing is still essential and the article makes the point that instead of helping small retailers be on an even keel, large retailers with a web presence are the ones to benefit.

Also the click and collect aspect of the current restrictions shoots your 'leave home' argument down, Duff. It does reduce footfall in the shops fair enough but you only have to walk around any area to see people aren't staying home at all.

See above.

Clearly boutique fashion shops aren't essential clothing but some clothing you just go and buy like groceries and alcohol. And certainly when you're buying wine in a decent wine shop, you can take your time selecting.

As far as I know, there hasn't been any trying on clothes since March?

I'd imagine that Cam is one of the few people who spend as much time buying wine as he does clothes.

Also think that some places have open fitting rooms with clothes being cleaned or left for 72hrs after being tried on. There was talk of it on the radio anyway but I haven't been in a clothes shop for months so couldn't say for sure.

Hugely. You will have Trevor Hogan go on ships trying to get through a blockade and everybody lose their knickers when they are arrested. It's a blockade because the Jewish public demand safety from their politicians and at that time Fatah and Hamas were at it. I have no idea what sort of future there is there. Gaza is completely unviable. Israel not much moreso with the West Bank protruding into it. Another proper war will bring the whole of North Africa and the Middle East into it as there are no Muslims on the sidelines anymore. Israel has just about got away with it for a long time and the US is pretty vulnerable these days.
I just accept I'll never understand the conflict well.
I've read a lot about it over the years. Met nice Israelis, met shit Israelis. The Jews trucked along nicely in the Ottoman Empire. Most lived in Rumelia which was basically the Balkans. No hassles until the 19th century when pogroms started there and all across North Africa and in the ME. Arab nationalism was partly the cause and the usual anti Jew dey tuk r jewbs crap. The question of whether Zionism was a cause of or came from the pogroms is debatable. Anyway come the 20th the race was on the populate the area west of Jordan and the Jews went from something like 5% in 1910 to 35% by the 40's. It was a total arse race in an attempt to get as many bums on seats as possible with the Arabs settling hundreds of thousands as did the Jews. The Jews would legally buy up the land and housing. The Arabs had seen the problem early on and had tried to out settle them so by the 40's you had like 2 million living there when something like 80k Arabs and Christians had lived there in the late 19th century. That's the big lie from the Palestinians that they are there forever. Most of them settled like motherfückers at the exact same time as the Jews.
hmmmm, I was with you until the last bit ; you said it was 5% Jews in 1910, what were the other 95% ? there was genuine legal purchase of land by the Jews but plenty of less than legal land grabbing ; what about the Balfour declaration which kicked off the whole influx and led to terrorist attacks on the British Empire by subsequent Israeli heads of state ; the 600,000 Palestinians that were fcuked out at the foundation of the Israeli state ; everyone has probably seen the map of Israel getting bigger and "Palestine" getting smaller ever since ; when you look at the death toll in the 2014 conflict you get a better sense of where things are more recently ; a total of 5 Israeli citizens were killed ; 540 Palestine kids alone were killed....but that happens when Israel bombs supposed UN shelters designated as off limits to protect kids ; Israel said they were aiming for a fella on the back of a motorbike but hey ! anyone, handy distraction on the thread from covid I guess

I don't know what point you are trying to make Trevor but it is confused. Mine is filled with clarity and light. There was fück all people living there in the early 20th century. Jews started settling and then there was a settling race as the Arabs got spooked. As for the 600k kicked out they had only been living there for a small number of years. That's the lie. I realised it was absolute cock from the Arabs when they maintained the census taking while accurate in the whole of the Ottoman empire was way off in that tiny parcel of land. Now if your argument is the Jews shouldn't have tried to settle there as per Zionism well that's valid but then you get into the whole where would a Jewish homeland be. In the early 20th century there was a decent bet.

my point is that to make out that the entire conflict is down to jews just trying to get a bit of uninhabited marshland back in the early 20th century glosses over a few things...

Nah I don't break it down to that. It goes back further into the Ottoman Empire. They couldn't drive a wedge between us tickets.

There is an argument that the rise of the doctrine of Zionism impacted on the assimilation of Ashkenazi
jewry in Germany and Austria Hungary (not Russia though - it was never going to happen there) in the late nineteenth early/Twentieth century by advocating a separate homeland for the Jewish people. In this sense it was similar to all the other nationalisms of Europe but it did give a fig leaf to nationalists of all kinds to say that Jews weren't us, they were them and they needed their own homeland that wasn't near us.

Doctors here have been misreporting deaths for ages here, putting Covid as the primary cause of death cause it’s easier. Apparently they get more money for dealing with a “covid” death too. Not sure if thats true but my first statement is

In which case, that’s on the doctor if they reported it as Covid. But ordinarily agree with you

I find those arguments about Zionism can often be traced to a problem with Jews as in if the Jews hadn't have wanted a homeland they wouldn't have got themselves killed by the Germans. Yeah you heard me it's the Jews fault.
Realistically pogroms kicked off in advance of Zionism. I am not doubting some pogroms happened because of Jewish nationalism coming up against Arab nationalism just they were deeply embedded events long before Zionism.

So according to Paul Reid :
Difficult to predict when Covid-19 cases will peak during winter, HSE chief says
https://www.irishtimes.com/news/ireland ... -1.4395375

This is the same Paul Reid who was predicting 2,000 cases a day and overwhelmed hospitals by the end of October, a few weeks ago when he wanted the country locked down ? Either their model works or it doesn't.

Popped into Dunnes there; homeware still nice and open. Good to see they’re deemed essential goods despite the Gestapo being out and about. :)

Difficult to predict when Covid-19 cases will peak during winter, HSE chief says

This is the same Paul Reid who was predicting 2,000 cases a day and overwhelmed hospitals by the end of October, a few weeks ago when he wanted the country locked down ? Either their model works or it doesn't.
Do you not mean Nolan, I doubt Reid predicted anything.

Interestingly on this, it appears as though hospitalisations peaked at the same time or even earlier than cases. Lots of questions on hospitalisations but I do wonder how well people are modelling it. Lots of discussions on the gap from symptoms to testing to hospital but the older you are the earlier I imagine you end up in hospital.

'Difficult to say' :lol: :lol: :lol:

That's actually the best yet. We have made an absolute hames of the modelling all the way through this and have fücked it royally but I think you won't mind bearing with us when I say we have no clue what the next few months hold.

Women dropping out of the workforce like flies.
Yes a great many people there are insane on both sides. My partner wouldn’t pay that much attention to the media here but was shocked when family members who were teachers were talking about going back in September. The New York Times et al continued drilling the fear factor in about reopening schools well beyond May when it started to end here (credit to the Government here for staying strong on that, even though they were late).

If someone like Scott Atlas says kids should be back to school for their education and for other reasons (like most kids who suffer domestic violence end up reporting that in school in the US), many of the left will simply not trust it.

The states is fücked. We have discussed it here a few times but a lot of the bollox and misinformation comes from there about covid. It's pure politics and neither side can be trusted. Covid has brought the worst out of pretty much everybody on the left, right and centre.
