Err... I don't know what to think about that.
why the fuck do you think i live in england?
'The Republic has made significant gains from its membership of the EU, earning the soubriquet Celtic Tiger for its economic progress.'
ie. scrounging money from the EU to constantly build roads.
it's a fucking joke. dammit i don't want to get started on this.
unpatriotic Irish person I've ever come across.
My family do come from Kerry, mind. Bar patriotism, all you have there is climbing mountains and alcoholism.
any sane person would agree with what i've said above.
I reckon the Irish life is pretty damn good. I would like to say that Northern Irish life is just as good but well..... it's not.
I grew up about 20 or so miles away from the border. Does that make me a better person?!
and for no other reason
I don't need to spell correctly
is even weirder.
IT'S SO BLOODY BORING.
IT DOES NOT DESERVE 4TH PLACE.
I might as well go back to Russia
got confused with the US.
from Dublin last night.
It was shit.
Never have I had a taxi driver refuse to take me on a journey because it was "too far" (20 minutes away). Never have I had a car booked for 8:30 turn up at 9:40, or one due to pick someone else up at 10:30 arrive at 15:00. Never have I paid TWELVE EUROS for a cup of tea and some toast for breakfast.
Guinness is fucking shit too.
for the purpose of this study, Belfast isn't included.........
The north is a hole. A hole that I have lived in for 17 years...
This is an old chart. It's from 2004.
Bids for this year's number one? I'll suggest Norway. It's ace.
they want to sell MAGAZINES.
The people who measure this shit for a living (via some kind of UN funded charitable nonsense) always plump for sweden or someone similar, ignoring the alcoholism and suicide rates. Probably.
Actually who even cares.
also stroke city makes me think that the poor inhabitants of stoke (not economically poor necessarily, just people who have the misfortune to live in stoke) have an unfortunately high rate of heart problems, which all too often cause them to lose movement in their left side. I kinda hope this isn't true.
Thought I don't really care as apparently it refers to Derry and also I know no-one from Stoke.
'The country's combination of increasing wealth and traditional values gives it the conditions most likely to make its people happy, the survey found.'
those things would make it a fucking horrible place to live for anyone with half a brain.
overstating definitely but anyone see what i'm getting at?
traditional values are fucking wank
we have to a Utopia...
