I thought that Ireland was so small that it was all local? It's less than half the size of Michigan and about the same size as South Carolina.

We've been around for a long time with populations growing up before cars or trains so there is considerable regional cultural variation and very different accents in different parts of the country, not just the bits with Scottish accents because of how many people were planted there from Scotland (and none of them sound like the Irish accent in American films and TV programs (Movies and Shows to you ).

He's an idiot but he's not as bad as Trump.
If he bragged about walking through her daughters school changing room and grabbing the girls by the pussy then he'd be like Trump.

He barged into the changing room of the Miss Teen USA Pageant.
He also bragged about being able to grab contestants by the pussy when he ran beauty pageants.
I wouldn't want him in the same room as my daughters.

Belief in Oirish ghosts and goblins must be catching
Quote:
Canada's ambassador to Ireland is concerned about ghosts.
Specifically, Ambassador Kevin Vickers is worried about a spirit that might be haunting Canada's official residence in Dublin.
In a recent Facebook post, the ambassador describes hearing unusual bangs, laboured breathing and heavy footsteps in the residence's halls.
Mr Vickers, a history buff, suggests it may be the spirit of one of the leaders of Ireland's 1916 Easter Rising.

There is no shortage of idiots in the world.
Half of all Americans believe in angels.
Fairies, angels, pixies, demons... what's the difference?

Is that any less idiotic than believing that a hard-core unemployable German professor devised the world's first "scientific" system of political economy -- and then proceeding to kill 100 million people in his name, especially as his mathematical "proofs" had been disproven even before his corpse was cold?

Never ceases to amaze me what people choose to look down their noses at . . . .

Yes, there are clockwise and anti clockwise species, clockwise having their left legs longest and anti clockwise their right.

No, it's just the same thing in a different package.

Anything which requires blind faith is dangerous. Faith required that you don't question it. Reason required that you question everything.
