    Hmmm...my muse seems to be on strike this week, so I'll try this: (Natrually, any lines from the actual episode will result in disqualification, heh, heh.)
  2. A chess player is wandering around the city between games at a weekend tournament, when he is approached by a hooker. "Hello love, fancy a good time?" she says. "You bet!" he says, taking out a pocket set "What's your grading?"
  3. When you click "Export" which folder is it automatically opening?
  4. Jesus said to them, "Who do you say that I am?" They replied, "You are the eschatological manifestation of the ground of our being, the kerygma of which we find the ultimate meaning in our interpersonal relationships." And Jesus said, "What?"
  5. I think that explains the design...
  6. Ah...got it. How did I miss those...?
  7. Hi John, I can probably get some Irish airport charts if you'd like to upload them... Regards, Paul
  8. A bit like making jokes about dwarves with learning difficulties. It's not big and it's not clever.
  9. Hmmph...I'm glad you find it so amusing. My counselling starts tomorrow...

    Very nice.
  14. I was going to remove those bits from the profile, but I thought the connection wouldn't be apparent, so I didn't bother. I underestimated you guys... (I'm not sure about beautiful, although it does have some nice views to be sure. I've sometimes wondered if the town planners were drunk or just hated tourism.) Here's a bit of movie "magic"... Just before the bridge in the movie: Just before the bridge in reality: After turning off the bridge and passing the...police car's parking spot (50 years from then)... ...in the movie, they go through these gates: Er... It's a bit of a curse, watching a movie made somewhere you know. Too many WTF moments. Years ago I was watching a thriller, also made around Wicklow (dreadful movie, even Pierce Brosnan couldn't redeem it. 90-odd minutes I'll never get back) and at one point the locals are having a protest march against the local Evil Businessman, who has a big truck block their path through a narrow street. The protesters shout, enraged and impotent, and I was thinking, "...lads, you're 10 yards away from Church Street...go round that way..." More recently while on holiday, I found the bit on Curracloe Beach in Wexford where Tom Hanks and the gang took on the German MG nest in Saving Private Ryan, and I couldn't make the angles add up, until I realised that a couple of the shots that you think are facing up the bluffs, are actually facing along the bluffs, and parallel to the beach. It's always fascinated me not just how movie makers do this...I know it's just editing after all...but how they put it together in their heads in advance. "Vision" I guess.
  15. Wow that didn't take long. Did you actually remember it?
