44 or possibly 37 (I not sure of the rules).


I asked a mate about the rules.

Pot all the reds with a single shot, take the yellow and then the colours, but foul the black = 37 (which is still higher than my highest break).

Anyone want to have a go naming all the current and former Arsenal players who have a World Cup winners medal? I'll try to come up with the definitive list but can think of one or two who might not be obvious.

Urban myth I'm afraid my old Hipster Atheist friend. It was a Christian ecclesiastical settlement known as Duiblinn long before the Vikings came a-raping and a-pillaging. :lol:

:lol: :lol:

But no no no we all know who shagged/shags whose women. :D 8) Little known fact but the ancient Irish for Englishman was "Microcockus". True story. :barscarf: :D

RE the potato famine - I'm glad you can joke about the mass murder by starvation of 1 million Irish men women & children and the ethnic cleansing that led to another 1 million Irish people being dislocated to the USA by your military and government never to see their homeland again. Unfortunately we as a nation still cannot bring ourselves to laugh at it. :(

That wasn't what I meant , in Anglo Saxon times the potato's weren't around cos they only came over with Walter Raleigh in the 1500's
Not a reference to 1847 at all mate ,i wouldn't find the genocidal starvation of a nation by colonialist cants funny either !
