Maybe if the US breaks out into a civil war I could always run away to Northern Ireland?

I could be wrong, but you might want to email the IRA (Irish Republican Army) to find out.

Congratulations Northern Ireland on joining the 21st century.

The car crashes and burns with everyone trapped inside. Now, should we initiate a recall? Take the number of vehicles in the field, A, multiply by the probable rate of failure, B, multiply by the average out-of-court settlement, C. A times B times C equals X. If X is less than the cost of a recall, we don't do one.

I agree with the same sex marriage. I don't agree with the abortion part.

Maybe these new laws are a ploy to unite Northern Ireland...by offending both Protestants AND Catholics equally! :lol:

FWIW, though, I thought same sex marriage had already been legal there, NI being part of the UK.
