I think we spend way too much time pondering food in shops, even old men with their reading glasses reading labels about saturated fats, stop procrastinating you foodies!

Yeah checking the ingredients for allergens is a stupid thing to do alright.

nope half the tim the RA posts are for the memes

Stegasaurus_Wrecks -12 points

Nothing to do with the ra posts or memes. Look at the sentiment and theme of the posts on here. Symptom of the age profile probably but still ties in with what I said earlier. If this was a UK sub it'd be regarded as UKIP

Mary Lou managed to appeal to my mother, who is usually very disparaging of Sinn Féin. I don’t attribute this to ML’s sex appeal but simply to her political ability.

Stegasaurus_Wrecks 1 point

You never know.

What the actual fuck? This guy is the political editor of a newspaper?

Mary Lou McDonald has that intangible X-factor that few others in politics have and has used all of her considerable skills

OK, that I can go with. She's ballsy, a straight talker and has shown little tolerance for corruption in politics.

... — including her attractiveness — to climb the ranks of Sinn Féin in a relatively short time.

Like really, WTF? That's like something you'd expect to see in The Sun, in the fucking '70s.

Like Margaret Thatcher she has exploited her gender positively, making herself the obvious choice to succeed Gerry Adams.

I wonder what it would look like if she exploited her gender negatively? Is he trying to have a dig at her here with the comparison to Maggie the cunt? Or is this... a joke?

Yeah Maggie was a fuckin ride.

No we don't.

Yes we do. If the service is good. Unless you're poor, tight or miserable.

If it's really above and beyond, sure. Otherwise you're just paying them twice for the same job, and rewarding them for just doing it well.

Surprised that perverted hoor has the neck to show himself on social media.

these are agreed pay structures. Very few people in a company would have their bonus tied to the profit/ loss of that company. They have to act like every other company to maintain staff. Any company, public or private is worthless without good staff

Stegasaurus_Wrecks 7 points

Very few people in a company would have their bonus tied to the profit/ loss of that company.

HA! Every private IT company I've been in had 3 factors determining whether bonuses were paid. Company performance, Business Unit performance and Individual performance. Certain metrics had to be hit, but if 1 & 2 failed, then fuck you unless you were a god (but they'd prob promote you or give you a payrise instead).

Sucks but makes sense in one way (we don't have money right now to pay bonuses when company is doing shit, stick with us and we promise it'll get better), but like you said, a company misses targets, doesn't pay bonuses, loses good staff, then they miss more targets and the whole situation gets worse.

There's no way it should be mandatory closing. The Red warning was for basically the entire country but some places got 2 inches and some had drifts of 4 ft. However there should be some protection against being sacked if you literally can't make it to work.

Will the cries of discrimination will also come if Northern Ireland residents with Irish passports attempt to cross the border back to Northern Ireland after a day in the Republic and are treated different to a British passport holder.

If only British passport holders are employed, even if the difference in treatment was an honest mistake, how do you prove that it isn't discrimination?

In theory, there should be no problem with the PSNI if it only employed British passport holders either assuming all employees follow the rules. In practice, Northern Ireland has plenty of examples where this has caused problems in the past.

Hence the outrage.

Stegasaurus_Wrecks 2 points

If, if, if. You're throwing theoretical scenarios in there now. The point is about hiring. There's no discrimination involved. Irish people from NI who want to work on the border force can apply if they have a British passport. British people from NI who want to apply without a passport cannot. It is simple and straightforward. The automatic check on the passport has probably been in place for decades and based on the British passport number being the index key. It may not have been updated to cater for the Irish passport, post-GFA.

Looking for, or more importantly, seeing malice in everything must be a tiring way to live.

guy_incognito_mode 2 points

Its how NI functions on a day to day basis however.

The very point of the matter is that if the rules were not updated to cater for the GFA then they must be now or the GFA is broken.

Don't come crying to the Irish if pubs in England blow up because you didn't want to adjust the rules for the Irish in NI to work in border posts.

Car dealerships charge on a time and materials basis and usually don't guarantee their work, whereas Apple repair is probably flat rate and comes with a warranty. They don't want to fix one thing and have it come back a week later with 10 other problems they didn't realize were there.

Stegasaurus_Wrecks 1 point

Of course car dealerships guarantee their work. Wtf? Even supplying the parts is guaranteed and you must by law be allowed use 3rd party parts within spec without voiding warranty. Ecu is dealer only though.

psycoee -1 points

No, they don't. The part manufacturer might guarantee the parts, but if they fail you pay to R&R them. Some mechanics might do that as a goodwill gesture if you buy the parts from them, but they aren't obligated to.

Stegasaurus_Wrecks 2 points

European law dictates that a manufacturer warranty is not affected by using 3rd party parts once they are within spec.

I know you joke but my grandfather actually would class missing mass as worse than the rest of those.

A Capuchin Monk once told me that no matter how well you live your life, did good deeds, donated to charity etc. If you weren't a regular practitioner of faith (Mass, Communion etc.) then I was no better than the 'Savages in Africa".

If there's actually a Heaven and he managed to get in, I don't wanna be there.

Nascar tires weigh about 11kg (24 lbs). It's pretty primitive tech but they don't use flintstone-style rock wheels...

Still a very nice catch though!

It's frightening really. You can basically ruin the lives of any sportsman you like by accusing them of rape. Wouldn't actually matter if it happened or not.

Does AGS have a bad record with public procurement?

Stegasaurus_Wrecks 1 point

It doesn't need to. A secure, well-designed, scale-able, efficient, user-friendly & integrated system would cost tens of millions and years to deliver. Hell, the initial analysis to just get signoff on the requirements could take that when you factor in governmental red-tape, tendering contracts etc.etc.

I think every guard in the country would agree that it needs to happen though. Have they even got a secure radio comms network or are they all still using mobiles?

theeglitz 2 points

In fairness, the Times can't do sums either.

For example, the Garda’s figure for sexual offences reported in 2003 was 1,986. The revised figure is 1,573, meaning the number of victims who came forward that year is 26 per cent lower than previously stated.

Stegasaurus_Wrecks 3 points

I hate the misleading way percentages are used. 1986 is 26% higher than 1573 but 1573 is 21% lower than 1986.

The figure you are taking a percentage of is important.
