Ahern Under Pressure to Explain Tribunal Evidence

From again (guess what I'm doing while I eat my se7en bagel?).

It seems Bertie has only a few hours to summarize the evidence that has been heard before the Mahon Tribunal. The tribunal began back in November, 1997, when we were younger and thought that perhaps corruption was something that could be found in trees around the North Dublin area (and so easily expunged). However, with 10 and a half years of evidence to explain, and the rest of us scratching our heads wondering what it is that it all means that this Tribunal that was set up to investigate is investigating on behalf of the citizenry of Ireland that is different from what it was ten years ago... phew. No wonder he's under pressure...

Read the real story here:

Three men quizzed in relation to cannabis haul

This one is from

Without reading the story, it seems a new quiz show, whereby three challengers play for cash and prizes, was being filmed close to a cannabis haul... How close is a matter of national security, so the best indicator we could get was that they were 'in relation to' it.

Getting Late

It's getting (too) late
to change my ways
to relive days (gone by).

It's getting (too) easy
to carry on again
doing the same things again
and again and again and again
and expect a (different) result

I'm getting (too) drunk
on Friday and Saturday and Sunday and
(even) Wednesday nights
to really make a difference to someone

Someone who (really) made a difference
to me
in me

But thinking about it
is the (inevitable) first step
to step out of parentheses
and put into (real) practice
to do

What I fear it may be
getting too late to do

Gladiators Returns! Are We All Stoop-id?

Gladiators, the hit 90's show is coming back and being presented by Kirsty Gallacher and Ian Wright! I can't really say anymore about this than Bill Hicks said, back in the 90's:

“Go back to bed, America, your government has figured out how it all transpired. Go back to bed America, your government is in control. Here, here's American Gladiators. Watch this, shut up, go back to bed America, here is American Gladiators, here is 56 channels of it! Watch these pituitary retards bang their fucking skulls together and congratulate you on the living in the land of freedom. Here you go America - you are free to do what well tell you! You are free to do what we tell you!”
