To hold the ball longer than is required to take four steps.

This is the type of shyte that make the Offical Guide a laugh. If you're standing still, the time to take four steps is infinity. If they mean the time required to take four steps if you weren't standing still, what sort of nonsense is that? If your imaginary steps (that you're not taking, remember) were running-flat-out steps, the time to take four of them might be 0.75 of a second. But the referee might be imagining walking steps, as the rules don't tell him otherwise. Four of those might take 3 seconds.

Really? I don't remember us Northerners having to be bailed out,or swallow extreme austerity measures

 ;D  You get a 5Bn bailout every year.

So is it the case that when you join a certain media organisation or all being the case it seems lately, that you have to toe the line in terms of your views and questioning of people? Seems a disater area if you are wanting to become a serious journalist only to be told to read the autocue and foolw these lines of thought......

Which Journo's have bucked the trend on these matters? Jon Snow?
I wouldn't mind seeing Miriam O Callaghan buck with the legs she showed last night on Prime Time

rule 1 please

She's old enough to be your Ma Milltown!!!!

She has so many kids, she could be.

Deuteronomy 25:11-12

Can't argue with a word of that, in fairness.

Can you lift a team mate up to catch the ball, like in a line-out in rugby? Be deadly for the smallish Tyrone lads trying to get a mark.

There's no rule against it. So if you did it and the ref blew it, it'd be interesting to hear his reason and what rule he was invoking.

Condemning the sectarian murder of ten men is anti nationalist propaganda?

Or, in other words, "you're wrong in finding no specific purpose for living. I'm right, simply because I believe there is, though I've no idea what it is."

The onus for proof of a proposition is upon the proposer.

He's back - 
Better Call Saul S.3 just started the other day.
I'm a very late comer to Breaking Bad. Not long into Season 3. Do I watch them all to very end first, or does Better Call Saul start before the final series of BB ends? 

BCS is Saul's life (as Jimmy McGill, his real name) before BB starts. It's not necessary to watch BB to understand and fully appreciate BCS in its own right and the storylines don't interlink at all, so far. Inevitably, familiarity with Saul in BB enriches the BCS experience but it's not in any way necessary to see all of BB before watching BCS. Mike from BB is also a leading character in BCS and we're told Gus Fring makes his appearance this series.

Good effort. God he's slow!

I've never understood this consensus that beliefs are worthy of respect. They're not. People are worthy of respect. If we must respect beliefs, does that mean all beliefs? Racism? Voodoo? Nazism?

"But these are not religions," people will say. "Religious beliefs must be respected." Why, more than other types of belief? Some religious beliefs are stupid beyond ...ehhhh .... belief. Some are downright evil. Cows are sacred. Silly. Adulterers must be beheaded. Evil. A supernatural being worries endlessly about whether I love him; he even demands that I adore him. Farcical. Logically, if you cannot respect some beliefs, respect for beliefs is not a sustainable philosophy.

I think it's a confusion between respect for people, regardless of their beliefs and respect for beliefs.

Street lights switched off in Tyrone tonight.

As usual, I'm struggling to 'belong' to any of those categories, Hardy.  Is there nowhere for cynics? 

Sorry, Billy. Revised:
The Catholic church, the GAA, Keeping up With the Kardashians, Strictly Come Dancing, Nathan Carter, Manchester United, mutterers in the garden.

A more informative answer might have come from a census question along the lines, "which of the following best defines your cultural identity: the Catholic church, the GAA, Keeping up With the Kardashians, Strictly Come Dancing, Nathan Carter, Manchester United?"

Ironic that these chancers are supposed to protect you from robbers!


Well handled, Lar.
