Things I learned today


#4446

Says the man who has to dry out once a year due to the amount he’s drinking


#4447

No. I dont either. Clean living for me.


#4448

Me too. I’m practically a monk


#4449

Drinking alcohol generally doesn’t financially support criminals and murderers


#4450

You’ll find many governments throughout the world are murderous bastards. They get plenty of cash from alcohol and tobacco sales too which are both by far the worst drugs health wise.


#4451

Is the Irish government?


#4452

They’re full of gangsters
Edit: little Ireland😂


#4453

A piss easy way to clean a microwave is to put a bowl of water with some vinegar in it and put it on for a few miinutes. The water and vinegar evaporates all over the place and you can just wipe it clean. Piece of piss and brownie points galore.


#4454

Staying up gambling on Brasilian serie b football was a bad idea.


#4455

Birr castle is home to what was once the world’s biggest telescope


#4456

Dreadful admission, the biffos coming back to haunt @iron_mike.

A bad omen I’d fear.


#4457

Certain species of bats don’t age


#4458

Vampire bats.


#4459

That’s the irony!


#4460

As an aside, most large animals live long lives. Small animals generally live short lives. Bats are the exception, for their size they live extremely long lives.


#4461

There are native lizards in Ireland. This has blown my mind


#4462

Can’t believe you’ve never seen one. You must be some serious townie, where are you from?

They’re just tiny little things, an inch or two long, all green coloured from what I’ve seen. When I was a young lad, splashing in muddy Monaghan puddles, I used to think you were a lot more likely to see them when it was raining.


#4463

They featured on that nature show that ran for a few Sunday nights recently. A heap of them near some beach in Dublin.

I remember finding them in the backyard as a young lad.


#4464

I spent most of my childhood in the subtropical rainforest like environment that are woods in Wexford and I never saw one. I’m astonished there are native lizards in Ireland.


#4465

they aren’t native, they’re tadpoles that got zapped by radiation from sellafield water
