The Rome drivers are first rate safe drivers compared to those in Naples, you haven't driven till you have driven through it. Then there is India, best not even try

Never quite made it to Naples. Furthest south I have driven in Italy is about half way between Rome and Naples. Never been to India and probably wouldn't consider driving there. Driven a fair bit in Portugal and Spain without any issues. Maybe just lucky.

For flips sake man that is prime Italian driving, wave hands, make gestures and honk your horn, they will think you are a local.

Lottie Ryan. They used heavy metal music to break Noriega. For me it would be Lottie Ryan's voice.

The music on right here, right now #turnitoff
the irony being that ad-hominen and appeal to majority are the most often used defences of the apologist.

Jaysus, even I've heard of her...and I thought Gay Byrne still presented the Late late show.

Samsung smart TV bricked after an update. Samsung refusing to take responsibility despite it being widely reported. Scumbags.

Awful scenes in US due to Hurricane Harvey, 18 dead as of now. Massive media coverage.
As a side note, floods in India have killed at least 500 people. Hardly a mention.

Sometimes you win sometimes you lose.
Had flight booked to France for Tuesday just gone and had to postpone to Saturday. Then the Frog Traffic Controllers went on strike on Tuesday.
I'm thinking of buying a lotto ticket.

That says as much about the Indian media and Government as anything else.

No it doesn't you plonker. It says that our media doesn't think that it will gain much traction with audience's here and so goes unmentioned.

Tonight. 500 people died but none of them were Irish.... Or even from a place where Irish people might have relatives so.....

Replace Irish with whichever country is reporting the news.

Put it another way....

A/ Someone was shot today in west Dublin but you don't know anyone who knows them.....

That's terrible. People are getting shot all the time here. Ffs.

B/ You know that girl who's going out with Mick? Yeah well her brother was shot dead today in west Dublin....

Holy fcuk that's so tragic. She's a lovely girl. She must be devastated. Is there anything we can do. How's her ma. Etc. Etc.
