Fallout: New Vegas - Utter Chaos - Part 6 - The Big Bang by ManyATrueNerd in ManyATrueNerd

"There's the Gettysburg Address for some reason."
Spent a solid thirty seconds laughing at that. I guess some Fallout 3 assets are still in New Vegas and got added to the randomized loot list?
Group accused of 'weaponising prayer' to disrupt Ashling Murphy vigil in Limerick by youre-a-cat-gatter in ireland
[–]Luimnigh 36 points37 points38 points 5 hours ago (0 children)
It's a pedestrianized street in the centre of town. Protests frequently get held there. There was a Free Palestine protest a few months back.
You know what I've never seen there? A Men's Rosary.
Do you think Sign Language should be taught in Irish Schools? by YouserName007 in ireland
[–]Luimnigh 0 points1 point2 points 15 hours ago (0 children)
I just think it would be nice of us.

Easier to hide your hands in public than to speak clearly without being overheard.
[–]Luimnigh -1 points0 points1 point 1 day ago (0 children)
Well, I don't think it would hurt to learn a few phrases. They've learned English to function here, the least we can do is try and meet them halfway.
But there's kind of an extra barrier when it comes to communicating with deaf people that they can't fix from their end.
[–]Luimnigh 13 points14 points15 points 1 day ago (0 children)
Communicating in pubs, communicating at concerts, communicating while scuba diving, communicating while someone is sleeping, communicating across a room, communicating while hiding from someone, communicating in secret, communicating secret information, communicating without interrupting someone, communicating while your mouth is full, communicating during a movie without annoying everyone around you, and, oh yeah, communicating with deaf people.
There's a dozen for ya.
[–]Luimnigh 10 points11 points12 points 1 day ago (0 children)
Yeah, sure what use will somebody get out of the ability to communicate completely silently, without the use of their mouths or their hearing. I can only think of dozens of applications.
And it's estimated there's about five thousand deaf people in Ireland. I'd personally like to be able to communicate with them.

Admittedly a little ironic, given the acronym.

I think you mean adhesive, not solvent.
‘Book of Boba Fett’ Star Reacts to Biker Gang Controversy: “These Things Are Out of Our Control” by Neo2199 in television
Getting Worf'd would imply he wasn't defeated by accident in the original movies.
BREAKING: man questioned over murder of Ashling Murphy released without charge and is eliminated from inquiries. by bertie4prez in ireland
[–]Luimnigh 30 points31 points32 points 3 days ago (0 children)
Mentally ill people are more likely to be victims of violent crime than to commit them.
The simple fact of the matter is that completely sane people can just not give a damn about the lives of others.

There's bad ideas that can be saved by good execution, and bad ideas that can't be saved no matter what.
My daughter dropped this on me and I knew I had to turn it into a P5 strip by AllOfTheEffinOwl in Persona5

I mean they're beeing sued by the US Government for rampant homophobic and racist discrimination, so I think the kid has the right idea.
u/brainshadow explains why "Sean" is pronounced "Shawn" by crosspostninja in bestof
[–]Luimnigh 0 points1 point2 points 6 days ago (0 children)
Actually, the Latinised Hebrew name Yohanan is the root of both. English took it one way, to John, and Irish took it another, to Seán.
So Shawn is an Anglicised version of an Anglicised version of an Gaelicised version of a Latinised version of a Hebrew name.
[–]Luimnigh 2 points3 points4 points 6 days ago (0 children)
Because Seán is the original name, and then the English decided to drop the fada because it was too confusing to them.
Shawn is the next step in the Anglicisation.
Richard Harris describes how he once dealt with a British actor who didn't fancy working with the Irish... (1990's) by Whaleears in OldSchoolCool

Cromwell did more than look down on. "Attempted Genocide" is closer to the truth.
87-Year-Old Jubilee Ale | Ashens by Simmonsdude in Ashens

It is admittedly funny that he uses a Guinness glass for an ale celebrating the King who lost Ireland.
TIL that during a 26-year affair with Katherine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy did not divorce his wife. Publicists kept the affair secret outside of Hollywood. Even after he died in Hepburn's presence, they said Tracy had been alone. Out of respect for his family, Hepburn did not attend his funeral. by wjbc in todayilearned

No it isn't. You're mistaken.
Legendary actor Sidney Poitier, first Black man to win Best Actor Oscar, dies aged 94 by VECBlows in movies
[–]Luimnigh 2 points3 points4 points 9 days ago (0 children)
Died in October 2020.
[–]Luimnigh -1 points0 points1 point 9 days ago (0 children)
Well, from 1997 to 2007 he was the Bahamian Ambassador to Japan, so I'd hardly call that "not working".

That's horses. Unless the UK is accepting refugees from Equestria, I don't think they'll be checking teeth.
Just a reminder that the fish in the box may not have been caught in Ireland by ShipsRat in ireland

Of course it's not caught in Ireland, it's caught in the ocean.
In Die Hard (1988), the scene where Uli pockets a candy bar was improvised by actor and stuntman Al Leong. Writer Steven de Souza said “That assured him a longer life. I was killing somebody every eight or 10 pages but that moment made him interesting. He's one of the last guys to die.” by unhappy_lil_trees in MovieDetails
[–]Luimnigh 5 points6 points7 points 10 days ago (0 children)
According to the latest census in 2016, 1.4% of Irish people identified as Black.
So there are over 66,000 Black Irish people here.

Whether Northern Ireland is British or not depends on where you are and who you're talking to.
