There are two types of people in this world: those who like company and those who don’t. Or at least it appears that way. There will always be that one person you know who claims that being alone is one of the best things since sliced bread. If it was bottled they’d sell it to you. If it was a drug they’d hook it to their single veins. You notice how they switch the word ‘lonely’ to ‘free,’ and ‘bored’? Huh, no, no; ‘relaxed.’ They casually let slip how amazing [...]
Prior to this week, my Fresher’s week in DCU, whenever I heard the word ‘university’ I thought of like-minded scholars under one roof, sharing horror stories of coffee and Berroccas in attempts to finish assignments, struggling to balance part-time jobs and heading to the pub for a well-deserved pint whenever the opportunity presented itself, speaking with that mother tongue of free-wheeling dry wit found only in students of the pre-yuppie stage. Due to this, I couldn’t help but say ‘oh-lah-dee-dah I’m going to University who’d have thought it?!’ when I [...]
With Ireland’s next game against Italy on Sunday Declan Kidney has a lot of decisions to make. With victories over the the USA, Georgia and a huge win over Australia, the end of the group stages is in sight. After three wins, Ireland are on 13 points in Pool C, with Italy and the wallabies (certain to pick up five points against the Russians on Saturday) on 10. It means if Italy win, even a losing bonus point would not save the Irish from a pool exit, as the head-to-head [...]
Remember when you were twelve, sitting in front of the tv, watching your favourite tv shows? I’m talking about Kenan and Kel, Saved by the Bell, Sister Sisterand the likes. With most of these shows ending in the early 2000′s where are the stars now? (sad face). Kenan and Kel – The troublesome two, of course always managed to put a grin on my face. Whether it be a “plan or a plot to make it to the top” or Kel’s love for orange soda. Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell are now 33 [...]
Stalking has become socially acceptable. Well – kind of. While camping out in your chosen one’s back garden with a pair of night vision goggles is still a no-no, it’s perfectly fine to obsess over every detail of their lives via Facebook and Twitter. This activity has come to be known as “creeping” and has installed itself as a hobby of sorts for our generation. Want to find out who exactly that friend of a friend of a friend is seeing? Dying to hear all about the big bust-up between [...]
WARNING: This article may, in places, be wildly inaccurate and condescending… Whenever I manage to break myself away from my studies and take a reflective stroll through the town, I can sometimes find myself in a place which will be familiar to many Irish students: the pub. Never one to shy away from social conventions, I’m inclined to give the lads a text and we’ll settle down to an evening of chat, craic, and that dreaded word “banter”. We’ll take in the topics frequented by pub punters, music, love-lives [...]
Let’s face it; rugby is the only thing we’re any good at. I, like many other Irish men and women, have become a big fan of the sport for this reason and this reason only. I have never played rugby nor am I an expert on it, I’ve always considered football to be my area of expertise. But as I watch Ireland continuing to perform so well at the World Cup, I can’t help but sense the nostalgia of it all already, in particular towards the Australia game. There was [...]
A woman from Tel Aviv was caught doing the dirty when her husband used spyware software to turn her phone into a bugging device. He was able to hear her “going at it” with her lover from his office. The app also transmitted every text and incoming and outgoing call from her phone to his. The €850 software package is normally used by Israeli Mossad agents to track down terrorists and can be pre-installed on a phone and then activated by a text. Police suspect the software was leaked on [...]
Party poppers were at the ready on Tuesday as the mighty Google turned thirteen years of age. The appropriate doodle of the day showed Google sitting around a birthday cake topped with thirteen candles and a bundle of presents. One song definitely on the DJ list was Queen’s hit “Don’t Stop Me Now” after Google showed admiration for Freddie Mercury by celebrating his sixty-fifth birthday with a doodle on the 5th of September. The search engine was founded in 1996 by two Stanford University graduates Larry Page and Sergey Brin who named the site ‘Googol’. [...]
As we return to college, I can’t help but notice an emerging pattern amongst my flatmates. Whilst last year we were all perfectly content to sit around vegetating, eating badly-cooked Thai Green Curry, and drunkenly making up new languages, this year things are different. No less than TWO of my flatmates are beginning to casually slink off wearing tight-leggings, hair-bands, runners and other items that can only suggest one thing: they’re off to probably the most evil den of sin and degradation known to man, the lowest circle of hell. [...]
