You do know thats just a normal Saturday night in Dublin right?
Why do you want to keep making childish political statements instead of a good-natured laugh of how a little weather turns people everywhere into fools at times.You do know thats just a normal Saturday night in Dublin right?
And what would use use to loot in this snow?

Er!! What the hell has this todo with the thread... You know trashing threads isn't a good idea...Love the trade deal, here in Scotland you probably sell us a case of Bourbon a year, they wear kilts not levi Jeans.....In return your going to up import duty on EU cars like the Porsche,BMW and so on....LMAO
I think we will live without Jack Daniels, Levi's were for the 1980's, lets see how many people stop buying porches and BMW's
But you could buy American cars, except you dont make enough steel do it, and hes just upped the price of that.
Maybe a game show host wasnt the best choice
One month sales of EU cars in Jan this year... Thats a **** load of levi's
I had a good laugh at the poor so and so's in devon, until i found out our old next door neighbor is in exeter royal dying (actually he died this morning), his wife of 54 years couldnt get near the hospital because of the lanes where we lived.Er!! What the hell has this todo with the thread... You know trashing threads isn't a good idea...
Time and a place LG!! Please keep on topic..
On a lighter note.... The snow here wasn't our problem... The winds that blew it all over the show was!! Roads were blocked time and time again because of the drifts... We are on the west of the Pennine's and the snow was blown over from the east.... It didn't stop for 3 days...
For some it was an emergency, for those 12 that died as a direct result of the weather i expect they saw it as an emergency.<snip - removed political comments>
Now for me today, we just had hail pass though and are working our way up to almost chunky snow right now. The big 12 - 24" storm has already been downgraded half a dozen times now down to ~6" - 12" in my area. Darn near golf weather by our standards if it weren't for the water hazards being froze over and people using them to cheat.
I see things contextually and by long running historical comparison. Loss of life is not good but most often there are far more statistics and variables in play than what's being reported. for example.For some it was an emergency, for those 12 that died as a direct result of the weather i expect they saw it as an emergency.
Where I live we deal with life as if there is no one and will never be anyone to depend on but ourselves and thusly the concept of blaming others for one's own misfortune (due to one's own lack of willingness to plan and prepare for the worst likely outcomes) are rather strange to us types. Beyond my house being hit by a tornado in the middle of the night while I am asleep, there is no natural event I and most everyone around me is not in some way prepared to take on ourselves individually or as a local collective.How well would you take it if i stood and laughed while someone you cared about was in a life and death situation? I admit yes i joined in, but then i look back and realize i laughed because it wasnt me being affected. Then I feel ashamed because as above, i doubt those that died were laughing just before there last breathe.
Because the people like me were not in charge. It wasn't my personal hurricane and our less than capable government, moe to the point, its fools who feel that their social welfare program agendas to help everyone who doesn't really need help, are more important than helping those who truly do need help, was in charge. That's way it did not get fixed properly despite all the talk about doing so. FEMA is a curse word in our country.And the last point still stands, how come you had a hurricane decades ago and still haven't managed to build it back up? Even third world countries do better than that.
