Was applying for my ESTA there cause I'm flying through Boston next month.

1st website you hit when googling ESTA is esta.ie

The place charges you $87 to 'help you' with your application, when the only difference is you complete the application on their website instead of the US website.

The proper application only costs $14

Fucking cowboys. I'd say many a mammy has been dooped

I applied for mine last week, and probably would have done the exact same thing but for reading about it on reddit about a month ago. Robbing bastards.


Speaking of which, the missus was trying to convince me to go for the 'fancy doors' on a pantry we're building. She said that if I was opposed to getting them over the plain ones that she would cover the cost on her own.
The difference between the 2 plain doors and the 2 "fancy" ones is EUR 1,400.00

Within 30 seconds I found the exact same style doors on the website of the hardware store near my office for EUR 119.00 each.

Please tell me you told her you'd sort it out and pocketed the profit.

How long it take?


started about 1pm on Thursday, finished about 3pm on Sunday.

the second day was a killer - 51km. We hit the marathon mark scambling up a steep enough hill that it had a short arse like me using my arms!

raised over 200k in total, so in fairness, it was well worth it!!

No joke, that's them. Pretty bog standard.
("Fancy" was the word he used in his broken English).

He said it was because they're handmade to measure.
I told him to go an shite, because it's a whole new (plasterboard) wall that's being made to measure, so make it to measure normal fucking doors.

Is there a word for the impatience you feel waiting for Amazon stuff to arrive. Got the dispatched email this morning and I just want it NOW.

Going to Barcelona in the morning to chill for the weekend before going to Nowhere festival, Europe's Burning Man, for a week in the desert on Monday.
Can't bloody wait.
