    I can’t understand the extensive damage to the bus when looking at the photos.

      Looks like the van hit coming from the passenger side, causing the panel surrounding the display to buckle, thereby popping the top window.

    A White van man and a Dublin Bus.
    All that’s missing is a taxi driver for the most obnoxious aggressive motorists out there.

          So only whites can drive Audis?

          You’re racist for clarifying and I’m racist for extrapolating ” only whites can drive Audis?” from your post.

          I always knew you had it in for the brothers driving quality German-engineered hairdresser cars, Bertie.

      Dublin Bus […] most obnoxious aggressive motorists?

      ?? I would totally disagree. Dublin Bus drivers are the most courteous of the lot. YMMV

        I am going to have to google YMMV but I agree: bus drivers are pretty much consistently careful of me as a cyclist.

      Heehee. Historic….
      Do you ‘roll down’ your windows in the car?
      Does your phone ‘ring’? Do you ‘hang up’ on people when finished a call?
      Do you ‘turn on’ your TV?
      Is the ‘save’ icon on your compute a picture of a floppy disk?

    Yes to all of these, I still talk about taping tv programmes :)
