    *David Attenborough voice*

    It’s quiet here now. A Saturday night: not peak time for prey or predator in the BS comment section. You’d almost think I’m wasting my time sitting here whispering, infra-red camera at the ready…

    But you’d be wrong…

      I work with someone who buys it every week and ‘generously’ leaves it behind him when he leaves work.
      His heart is in the right place, but his brain is up his answering-machine.*

      *think about it…
      Now you get it, yeah?

    …sniff, sniff….

    Day 2:
    Everything is cool.
    They still think I’m in the undergrowth. (I’m in the overgrowth.)

    No sign of anything to make a stupid joke about yet, but Mondays are always good so I got that going for me.

    [NOTE TO SELF]
    Getting better at memes. Have a drink. You earned it.

      Flip it.
      I shouldn’t have replied to the comment above my one. I just ruined my own joke.
      Also, better student would be A+.

      [NOTE TO SELF]
      You’re losing it again. Call library re book about memes again on Monday, 10am. This is bullpoo.

      Swing low there for a bit
      Sum’ting might come along

    You know those stupid, whiney comments you get here sometimes?
    -The ones where someone is trying to redeem themselves by pleading
    Sorry BS, I didn’t know ‘F*** H** R**** i* T** P****’ was a swear word, I won’t do it again, promise.’
    ?
    Well…

    This is one of those, (or them).
    I said ********.
    I shouldn’t have.
    I should’ve called it ‘male bovine excrement’. I would’ve gotten away with that, no problem.

    It’s ********.

      They’ve just run out ov’other sh1t
      There’s only so many tv3 slebrity pals of Louis Walsh looking fabulous at lunch with rich former sum’ting or other,

    Sex and violence is very popular of a Sunday.
    Anyway, we are being told there is a rural arms-race because 139 Garda stations were closed to save €500k
    (asidehttp://m.independent.ie/irish-news/big-savings-from-scheme-to-cut-garda-time-in-court-26120079.html)
    Do we have actual crime statistics for Ireland?

    (I am aware there are problems with how crimes are recorded and categorised)

      Hasn’t saved a f***in thing. That 500K off the tax bill is more than made up for by the cost of the crime boom that we’re experiencing at the moment.

      1. Deluded

        That’s the impression we get from the media, yet despite the population increasing every year, the CSO says that reported crime is falling from a peak between 2006-2008. Why is that?

        1. Woof

          Because they’re not counting certain crimes? Bicycle theft is, I understand, never part of the statistics. And there are other ways to juke the stats, as The Wire put it.

      Repopulating these villages and townslands with new families would have this stations open again;
      An Post Offices,
      And Bus Services,
      And the School,
      And whatever yer having yerselves

      pretty sure there’s a league of Clubs;
      of all codes thsy could do with a few new lads to bring up too
      All we need are families looking for fresh starts
      Know any

    Here’s some eye-candy instead: a selection of the NASA photos from the Hasselblads on the Apollo missions… (1800 dpi, yum!)
