    The WTF Thread

    I don't know what to make of that. Are they taking the piss out of trans people? If they're not are they mentally ill or fuckheads looking for something to whine about? Or beaned on some new drug that I haven't heard of before? So many possibilities

    You know you're getting old....

    I went on a holiday to Cuba back in the late 90s, would go out dancing (or attempting to) most evenings and was really surprised at how little respect musicians got - people were there for the dancing, and the musicians got pretty much zero attention

    That fact that you think it's lame probably makes it (even) more fun for the protagonists.

    Of drinking 10 pints in a night? Are they? I know set-dancers aren't boozers, my Ma and Da went to lessons back in the 90s and even then nobody drank at them, but normal culshie 20-somethings on a Saturday night? Maybe yer man was bullshitting me of course, you'd be in a better position than me...

    "Excessive" boozing might mean something slightly different in culshie-land too. 20-something percussionist in the culshie bar band I played in would consider 10-12 pints a normal Saturday night

    You know you're getting old....

    ... when you find yourself dwelling on the fact that you've probably passed the half way point between leaving school and the grave

    Middle aged pleasures

    That was one of my big disappointments on the journey from youth to middle-age. For some reason I thought we'd do things differently (and better) than our parent's generation, but we didn't really (apart from repealing the 8th, and same sex marriage, I suppose)

    Coronavirus: Better Call Sol - CORONAMANIA

    I can understand people being a bit wary of the first iteration of the vaccine in fairness. Didn't one of the swine flu vaccines trigger narcolepsy in a few cases, and get withdrawn?

    My buddy Pete says 2011 was the year that porn won. It's still winning, by the looks of things

    US politics

    So the only way the Dems can defeat them now is with a team of marketing guys plus an actor who's better on stage than Trump. Is that what AOC is? I mean I love her, but ... y'know she says what I wanna hear, and that dancing video really won me over. Is it people like me the Dems are aiming at...

    What Twitter pile on are you watching right now

    Frank Sinatra doing patriotic virtue signalling in the 90s? Bizarre. The older I get the less I understand. Is this what dementia is? When you gather so much information about the world it becomes impossible to make any sense of it at all My 15-year-old gave me a new word yesterday -...

    What Twitter pile on are you watching right now

    Just looked it up - the Yanks went way crazier about it than I remember from the time. How odd. Catholics are only around 20% of the US population, and why would anyone else give a fuck? Were the Catholics just super shouty about it?

    Really? I remember a bit of a fuss, but I thought it was a very small one
