  1. All that money spent on those fancy adverts. If you really want to attract people to the island. Screen this no-budget arthouse movie. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9xpbPZxaQ9Y
  2. What was the nature of the complaint? Click the link below. http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/world-news/ryanair-passenger-arrested-after-chicken-sandwich-complaint-14886691.html
  3. A big windfarm at Port Soderick.
  4. That edition of Coast was really enjoyable, especially with the archaeological dig near Ronaldsway. Good features on the Laxey Wheel, Peel beach and the Snaefell Mountain Railway. They did include the Solway Harvester tragedy and the formation of the RNLI. Well done Beeb.
  5. Kids who jump into the sea should be left alone. Kids who sit in the middle of Hutchinson Square and drink themselves stupid should be taken to court.
  6. I'm glad that no Manx people were victims of this gun-toting nutter. The Steam Packet Company have day trips to Whitehaven. There were 30 attacks in the space of a few hours. 12 dead. What he did is totally despicable.
  7. What the bloody hell do they want these controls for? Asking me to show a passport to travel from the UK to a Crown Protectorate is asking too much. I'm well aware of the security controls already in place for all foot passengers on the Steam Packet and they're effective. So if ain't broke, don't fix it. Besides, how much would it cost to transform the sea terminal to cope with all this shit? Any advance on £1 million?
  8. I visited Port Soderick in July 2005. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. All the tourist facilities had been closed down. Even the shoreline pathway had been closed off. Even if you go by Port Soderick on the way in on the ferry, you can still see how much of an eyesore those buildings are.
  9. In fact mæŋksmən its highly statistically unlikely:
  10. Unavoidable really. Given our TV and radio broadcasts, any alien civilization 98 light years away has already picked up the distress calls from the Titanic. Has anyone seen the movie "Contact?" An alien civilization sends a message which turns out to be Hitler's speech to the Berlin Olympics.
  11. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jpoki4wBwtA&feature=PlayList&p=AD46E542B93B918B&playnext_from=PL&playnext=1&index=55
  12. Are they flying paper darts out of Jurby?
  13. Yes, more info here. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/northern_ireland/8624546.stm
  14. Have you had any heavy rain? That usually fucks the picture up no end.
  15. Yes, I don't see why not. After all, up above the Summerland site, there's the Steve Hislop memorial garden. On the Douglas Head Road, you have a memorial to the crew of the Solway Harvester and the Battle of Trafalgar memorial. So I don't think the folks in the "Wedding Cake" have much by way of excuses not to construct a memorial garden.
  16. Actually they have. Some of them think he's the manager of the German football team. These kids aren't that bright. Did you notice the same You Tube comment, repeated four times. Fucking ill-educated ingrates. They will be old themselves one day. It's only a matter of time. Rant over. I think I'll rent a DVD of Logan's Run.
  17. Try the Wicklow Hills Guesthouse. http://www.wicklowhills.com/
  18. I nearly PMSL at that article. It's so good, it's going on my favourites list. "Strand Street really is full of shit!" and this remark, translated into Manx as "Quonquncre Jeceris Stabit" is written on 10 pence pieces by the Manx Government for a laugh, to take the piss out of shoppers. They're like that in Tynwald: sarky bastards."
  19. That advert where Kieron jumps into the sea. Yes, I think what they're trying to say here is that the Isle of Man is an island. No shit, Sherlock.
  20. Or 6 - "As a child did you pull the wings off flies?" No, I blew up frogs instead!
  21. it would be easier to just buy your breakfast and then shovel it straight down the bog and cut out the middle man.
  22. Here's a wacky idea. Ask Her Majesty the Queen to confer city status upon Douglas? Don't laugh. Some other towns have been given this status.
  23. More information here. http://www.u.tv/News/Couple-jailed-in-largest-NI-tax-case/2952e884-d78c-4ec9-a183-f7f421250704
  24. I would agree but then there's the risk of drunken teenagers using it as a place to congregate and booze...and right next to a railway line.
