Re: King Charles will not appear on Aussie 5$ note

It's probably not for this reason - although who knows - but I read somewhere that usually when putting a face on a banknote, they prefer someone who is dead, because if you have millions of banknotes out there in circulation and the guy gets caught interfering with kids or they find a body buried ...

I didn’t watch the whole video- was there a strike?

Have you even read your own opening lines?

The topic is being discussed- the one you started, founded on a bold misrepresentation of another document. It wasn’t taken the wrong way- you deliberately started it off the wrong way.

Mods feel free to lock this down, it's getting messy. :please:
You would achieve much more with honest debate than misrepresentation.

Re: Project Ireland 2040

Have you ever been to Ireland ? I doubt it, along with Bingham you are claiming Irish roots in order to virtue signal Irish roots? GTFOH, I was born and raised in Dublin by Irish parents, and was back there in July/August for nearly a month. I don’t think that you even need to qualify yourself, JB....

Re: Oh, You Internet.

https://i.imgur.com/6CxxrWR.jpg It’s a funny old thing- sometimes, some comments and phrases do need care. And then someone comes along, whose job it is to care more, and all of a sudden generations are isolated by a common language. However, I’m reminded of an engineering colleague from the early ...
