Underground Dart

So, the powers that be have decided that the answer to Dublin's transport issues are to build an underground Dart (read here). It seems to be like this is, again, a really, really, really fucked up and stupid idea.

Why didn't they think, a few years ago before the Luas, of maybe just making an underground system in Dublin and forget about the Luas. This, to me, would have made more sense. If they can do something now then why not before.

However the one thing that they have finally thought about is that it will link up with the Luas and existing Dart lines.

I bet ya that feck all will use it though as you will have to pay through the nose to get on them. The government need to realise that by dropping prices on public transport, introducing more carraiges and times, then more people will use it.

Personally, I dont think this will happen.

I wonder what they are going to do for the rest of the country though??

Praise be there is some sense in the world.

Saw this over on UnaRocks and all I can say is thank fuck there is some sense in the world sometimes. MSNBC presenter Mika Brzezinski I salute you for this (as well as for being quite fit)..

Why the fuck does that cuntin geebag Paris Hilton get so much coverage? If she is a role model for the youth of today we are all abso-fuckin-lutely fucked.

If she ever gets any sort of foothold in anything worthwhile I will ask Twenty for some assistance in my demise.

I think she might make my fucker's list...

Happy Birthday Hot Press

Irish music mag "Hot Press" (not to be confused with clothes storage areas) is 30 years young this week.

Happy Birthday and well done....although I do feel a tad old being older than said mag.

Chris Benoit & Family Dead

Just read today that WWE pro-wrestler Chris Benoit choked his wife to death and then smothered his 7-year-old son on Monday last, June 25th, before hanging himself with a cord from a weights machine.

He left a copy of the bible beside each of their bodies which bodes the following question:

Did you plan this in advance and so buy these bibles or were there really at least three bibles in his house?

Authorities say use of steriods may have contributed to this but WWE are saying that he passed a random test in April.

I'll remind the deputy..

I thought the "verbal spat", as they are calling it, in the Dail yesterday between John 'The Gunner' O'Donoguue and Michael Ring was fantastic.
I am just waiting for gunner's "I'll remind the deputy" words to be put into a techno tune.
I read today that deputy Ring will not withdraw his statements and really why should he? If that is what he thinks is he not entitled to freedom of speech and opinion? Or are the Failers, sorry, Fianna Fail members going to gag the country now?

Ireland's 2008 Eurovision Entry

Following on from my previous post on this and the incessant barracking from Gerry, here is a song which I'm convinced would take Ireland back to the top of the Eurovision. Except that the tune is robbed..damn, blasted rules.

Let this warm yer cockles...

To the tune of "Your Beautiful" by James Blunt

Song Title: She wants a yacht (in Spain)

My wifes a prossie
My wifes a whore
She sells her body
Thats for sure

She smiled at him on the subway
It was another man
She went with him, to get his cash
'Cause shes got a plan

She wants a yacht
She wants a yacht
She wants a yacht in Spain
I cant afford it, on my salary
And she knows just want to do
To get that yacht for two

She caught another eye
As she walked on by
It was plan by her face that the price
Would be high
But I hope, she wont see him again
As they shared a moment and she got crabs again

She wants a yacht
She wants a yacht
She wants a yacht in Spain
I cant afford it on my salary
And she knows just want to do
To get that yacht for two

She wants a yacht
She wants a yacht
She wants a yacht in Spain
There must be another way, to get her yacht
As Im so sick of her sleaze
And all those sexual disease

If you are looking to go to a festival this summer, really enjoy it, get some good weather and eat/drink cheaply then look no further that the Berlin Festival on 27th & 28th July.

We went last summer and it was fantastic.

You can fly from Ireland with RyanAir (via Stanstead), Aer Lingus, BA (via Heathrow) and Lufthansa (via Frankfurt) from Dublin, and BA (via Heathrow) and KLM (via Amsterdam) from Cork.

Where else would you get a two day festival with camping for €60 ??

Forget your Oxygens and Electric Picnics and go to Berlin !!!

Also check them out and become friends on MySpace.

Trigger finger?

Imagine you are in a job in a company whose future is uncertain. This type of situation carries on for a few years and eventually gets sorted. Things start to calm down. People start to relax more and a good atmosphere starts to be generated. You do not dread going to work as you once did and in fact, even with lots of work to do, you still don't mind it.

Then something changes and everything gets fucked up.

That change occurred in November.

Fuck it.

Eircom - Can they do anything right?

I have been checking on the Eircom website for weeks now to see if my phone line is suitable for broadband yet.

The answer No. This is following on from more shite from Eircom that I talked about before.

I decided, due to boredom, to check the Eircom website to see about the enabled exchanges. Lo and behold it doesn't show Rushbrooke (my exchange) as being enabled.

So, lets look at this.

1) I had a rep selling a phone package which included broadband and stating that the exchange was enabled and that they had checked my phoneline and it was suitable for broadband.
2) My phoneline is not suitable for broadband as per the Eircom website (last checked today as I write this post)
3) The exchange is not enabled (as checked today as I write this post)

Now, Im not really of a legal mind but surely this must be illegal? Selling packages that customers cannot use? Maybe Damien can advise???

Are you a minger?

I hope for your sake that you haven't made it into the website.

Or, maybe you are happy that you did and maybe even sent in your own photo. Whatever makes you happy.

Fourteen things..

Here are fourteen things to think about.

Fourteen Things That It Took Me Over 50 Years To Learn—by Dave Barry

1. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

2. If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be "meetings."

3. There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

4. People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.

5. You should not confuse your career with your life.

6. Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.

7. Never lick a steak knife.

8. The most destructive force in the universe is gossip.

9. You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason why we observe daylight savings time.

10. You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests that you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment.

11. There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age eleven.

12. The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe that we are above-average drivers.

13. A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person. (This is very important. Pay attention. It never fails.)

14. Your friends love you anyway.
