How are you feeling about the Brexit vote?
Also a lot of people in the US seem to mistake Ireland for a part of the United Kingdom, I guess we have been independent for less than 100 years from them, but still it's just such a worrying position for us right now.
I mean there is potentially good things to come from it, could end up seeing a unified Ireland considering that Northern Ireland vote had been to remain but it's going to take a lot of change, work and reform before any of that becomes a reality. Also my mother in law is a UK citizen living here... so potentially she could get sent home, Silver lining on every cloud!
Oh man, that airlock comment. I'm cracking up. You've been killing it lately :)
But yeah I love the heck outta Trek (Wife and Me went out last Halloween dressed as Riker and Kirk), watched every single series and movie of it (except the animated show) but just JJ's world is so... dull in ways.
The 09 reboot was somewhere between good and very good, never really great imo, but that absolute disaster that mocked the memories of The Wrath of Khan, not only did it feed from far better films, but also it reused a lot of the plot from the ending of Star Trek:Enterprise Complete with Robocop as the villain (Hail Peter Weller!) As much as I never watch trailers normally.. I had to after hearing the bad PR the new films trailer got... wasn't shocked, just sad.
New TV series next year though! Could be saved again, sorry btw if you have no interest in Trek and just like a good gag about me dying with a daft smile happily watching Chris Pine wriggling about silently screaming at me before his head pops with a spray of blood and Lens flare... hmmm nice images to dream about after the Sony show...
Also for someone who lives about 30 miles from the Island where Luke was hiding at, that ending kinda ruined the illusion for me of it being long ago in a galaxy far far away... I mean it's literally down the road from here :D
Weirdly the heritage board here didn't charge them anything to use the site and even had to make some repairs to it after they left (small things but still, respect an old heritage site imo)
I think the aim is to get more tourists to come to South West of Ireland to stand where Luke was, it is a really awesome place but you can literally just stroll up off to boat and recreate his scene with ease, just have to remember his lines hah.
Most of what I love about the country comes from just living here, with very few exceptions people are happy to just mind their own business and not try to dictate how others must live, was easily one of the proudest moments for me last year when Ireland was the first country in the world to legalize gay marriage by popular vote, as in the Irish people as a whole wanted it, not just a law passed by some politicians in a room, but the whole nation, can't beat that feeling.
I'd love to say everyone here is lovely though but of course there are exceptions, as evident by the other Irish users of this site mostly being moderated every other week and just seen one of them has fallen to a permaban lol, I guess there are still pockets of hate on every island!
The one thing I will say though, is I think the old view of what to expect of the south west of Ireland has taken a hit recently, you'll see more Mc Donalds arches here than you'll see someone knitting a jumper right off a sheeps back and you're far more likely to see people drinking a costa coffee outside with their macbook than with a Guinness on the street.
So I found someone else addicted to Peggle: my cat. I caught him following the ball with his eyes and had to rush over and stop him from jumping at the TV

Nope, it was a brand new unopened PS4 copy :-) Hmmmmmm New...

Yeah, that's the problem. Was kinda pissed about FFX being...
