  1. Did Jeffrey Epstein kill himself?

    Jeremy, you're an educated guy, why are you linking to The Mail?    We all know that most newspaper headlines are clickbate these days. Leave them alone and see what comes out in the wash later on, then discuss it, it's too soon to be jumping to conclusions.
  2. Did Jeffrey Epstein kill himself?

    The podcast is just audio, I found it excellent
  3. Did Jeffrey Epstein kill himself?

    There's a very good podcast called "Truth and Lies, Jeffrey Epstein" from ABC.  It gives some background into his past, and also deals with Ghislaine Maxwell's involvement in the whole thing.   I wonder what secrets she is going to tell.
  4. peloton: Anyone bought the bike?

    I think emkay is right, start with a normal exercise bike and see how you get on with it, before you spend too much on something you won't use much.
  5. peloton: Anyone bought the bike?

      That's quite an investment in something you don't know you'll like.  I know someone who has one and he's very enthusiastic about it, but he was already exercising regularly.  You need to start slowly and build up to that. I already know the bike is not for me, I've had one and it eventually became a clothes hanger!
  6. Heart attack at the age of 41

      Walking is a great exercise. I'm not a gym person, nor do I run, but I like to walk.  It's really a matter of moving more than you do now and finding something you enjoy doing. Everybody is different, you just need to find what you feel you could get into a habit of doing.
  7. Movie recommendations

    Damn, the sun has just come out, will have to put both of these on my Watch List for another rainly day!   Hidden Figures is the best I've seen so far this year, looking forward to more recommendations
  8. Movie recommendations

      Good to see a recommendation, I've been looking forward to watching it!  
  9. The English Teacher's Corner

    It's Sunday, his day off, give the guy a break

      If you look at the latest numbers, it's about 30,000 Irish people in Germany. Still not a huge number, but significantly more.
  11.   I’m quite sure a number of people did just that, but it isn’t possible for everyone.  Some people take on freelance work to fit in with family. But then, schools and kindergartens were closed and not everybody has back up at home to care for children. Also, not every school and kindergarten could offer emergency classes, or they were provided only for emergency workers. Then there are the people who are desperately trying to save their business.  Most freelancers have to work for more than one client, so if only some of your clients stop, you still need to continue with the others, and at the same time, find a way to get the others back onboard, if that’s even possible.       Again, this all happened so fast and people are just now figuring out what they need to do. Either save their career, or start something new, but that takes time.  Not every situation is the same, they have to be looked at individually, don’t condemn everyone when you don’t know the whole story.  
  12.   I feel the same way, the support is there to help people who need it. What were these people supposed to do in this unexpected situation? There was no time to prepare, it happened so fast and some people were left with no income almost overnight.  I'm glad it's there for them, and yes, there will be some who will abuse it, but that shouldn't stop us helping the ones who are really in trouble, through no fault of their own.
  13. What made you laugh today?

    I did not know that, and I was a big fan of JC back in the day!

    But isn't that the way it is in most countries?  In Ireland, you either come from a FF area/family or a FG area/family (FF and FG are short for the two main parties in Ireland). It's changing today, but it has taken a long time, as most changes do.
  15. Combating severe dry skin

    I'd say that's one of the best remedies for dry hands, it also creates a protective layer, like Anna66's glycerine.  I always have a tub of Vaseline here - it's a great product.
