No, you didn't take me up wrong at all. You just added something else. (I'm well used to it. )

Well I apologise if I attributed something to your post that was not intended. Thin skin this week.


No need and no worries. (I'm generally thick-skinned most of the time - have to be!)

Fresh meat from healthy animals contains a reasonably high concentration of vitamin C, as long as you don't cook it too much, which accounts for why the Inuit and other people who live in the high Arctic didn't suffer scurvy, even when subsisting on a traditional diet that contained practically no plant matter through the winter.

Even if you can't get out or there are no oranges left in SuperValu, you'll be fine if you resort to cannibalism or eating the family pets.

Was only reading last night how Captain Cook solved the problem of scurvy on long voyages by introducing Sauerkraut which became a standard of the navy!

It's pickled cabbage you want!

Lidl ram-raided with a JCB in Jobstown. Looting went on for a while before Gardai got there.
Loads of social media footage doing the rounds shoing the looting and the safe being dragged out and smashed by the JCB.

Other stores out there done too including at least 1 Centra

Extraordinary behaviour, hopefully Gardai can get a handle on this quickly, or it could be a long night for them in the area.

Agreed. Plus, there's a chance of copycat behavior elsewhere...very worrying for the authorities.

(And truly disgraceful comments from media darling John Connors on the matter.)

Several different shops/pharmacies/fuel stations done over the course of the evening with that JCB apparently.
How many people now out of work because of them. This will make news internationally too.
Scumbags

Ah sure, he only made those initial comments when he thought the good citizens had broken in to Lidl...with a JCB...to get bread!

Yes, (and I know you're being flippant) but not because the good citizens were hungry. It's because they were stealing from "corporations" who've apparently been "robbing us blind." It was a "revenge attack" on a low-cost, no-frills discount store.

He cynically tried to get some street cred with semi educated lefties and thugs by commenting on a video of people looting food. 'Cardboard gangster', what a good description of him.

This is the guy whingeing about not having an agent? So the local area will be without a cheap supermarket for a few months. Who does that help. Scumbag cheering on scumbags.
