Re: Official Gym Thread

It was a TKO because the referee actually tapped the winning fighter first. Losing fighter definitely tapped straight after though, utterly overwhelmed. Fractions of a second difference between the TKO and a "Submission from strikes" People who get hit hard in the head don't typically give the best ...

Re: Official Gym Thread

The one thing that has me believe that Conor wont fight December 30th, is that I don't think he'll be willing to be cutting weight over Christmas

Re: What's on your mind?

I wouldn't necessarily agree with setting limits based on ex-utero chances of survival. Particularly when it is only possible with a high amount of intervention. In my dumb, ignorant opinion I'd say by the time medicine can bring 12 week foetuses to term ex-utero, they'll probably be able to take ca...

Re: What's on your mind?

Eh, first of all, don't shoot shoot the messenger. That means both me, since linking something doesn't mean you endorse everything about it, and them, since they're comprised of lots of writers with differing agendas. Only the content matters. Anyway the whole idea of sides here is reductionist and...

So not so much as a looker then Shivo?

For years they've asked for photos on job applications in the council. One time I had to borrow a shirt so I could get a photo and meet the deadline.

Re: What's on your mind?

Don't see how there's any way to avoid it. There's always going to be a decent number so heavily entrenched on either side that there'll be authentic and falsified shit of this calibre from all angles. Then with the prevailing attitude among people that anyone on the imposing side should be held acc...

Re: What's on your mind?

They could just make it gender neutral. Acknowledge work in the home without it implying that its supposed to be women who do it. I'm not too au fait with it, but doesn't it kind of constitutionally enshrine a welfare state of sorts? I'd wonder if FG may try to just have it removed altogether rathe...

Re: The Travel Thread

If you're on that tight a schedule I'd skip Phnom Penh. Go see the temples instead of the Killing fields and political prisons. I'd say Hoi An is a nicer town to visit instead of Nha Trang, better partying in Nha Trang though. A couple of days in Ha Long Bay would be time better spent than Ho Chi Mi...

Re: The Travel Thread

Personally I'd avoid going during any long running festivals. It's a damn remarkable place on any day of the year and can be tricky/expensive to organise things at the best of times. Nepal is a country where people regularly have trouble feeding their kids. If something can't be produced there it is...

Re: The Travel Thread

Yep Phier, I have. I'd love to go back to Nepal, it's an amazing country. Have about zero desire to go back to Kathmandu, however. It's by FAR the most polluted city I've ever been to (much worse than anywhere in China, and seriously affected my breathing even after only a few hours). It's very dus...

I was just walking my dog and some cunt tried to kick my dog. My dog just sniffed his dog and his dogged snapped at him, then your man shoved my dog with his foot.
Fuck sake. I'm raging here just reading about it.

What kind of dogs are they?

Re: Official Gym Thread

I want to call a McGregor win but I just can't. Mma boxing is just too different, it's much longer range and shorter combinations with jumping in and out (or mixing in takedowns, kicks, knees). boxing has more fighting in the pocket with longer combos to force openings and standing your ground. My h...

Re: Official Gym Thread

Still seemingly tickets available to watch it at the arena, but then charging 2 grand for a ticket at the back was probably going to do that Edit - just looked. There's loads of seats available, not even close to being sold out. $2500 + $160 fees to sit in the back row of the upper bowl. $10,000 + ...

"snowflakes" get offended by everything

it's not a generation, it's a type of person (usually a millennial)
I actually think it's a great word.

Re: Do you like your job??

I remember 10 -15 years ago, reading reports from the U.S. where the wisdom was that the spike in mental health problems that the then 30-40 year olds were experiencing was as a result of their parents who had it good in 60’s pre counter-culture U.S.A, telling them the world was going to be their o...

Re: Do you like your job??

I was born in late 81 so too late to be Gen-X but too early to be considered a millenial. I'd say finishing school/college during the recession or growing up with ubiquitous internet is a far bigger factor. If you're born in the early 80s you grew up with MTV and extra tv channels (in Dublin anyway)...
