Contemplating Lobsters, Hierarchies and the importance of personal responsibility have all contributed to me being a considerably ****ing better human being compared to a year ago.

Everybody Carl Jung tonight.

Do yourself a favor and avoid reading too many of the 'memories' links. Much cringe resides within.

I'd have been ****ed probably, I was sort of able to slide through school without really being noticed by anyone other than my mates. Had I had access to some kind of social media, that might not have been possible because I was also a bit weird as well. Definitely got lucky there.

A friend got to be on the field for the Red Sox opening ceremony. Not entirely jealous of what she normally has to do to get on the field though.

Oh I never look at those memory posts they try to get me to look at/post, not worth my time lol

A few more years and elections should get really more interesting as younger generations who grew up with smart phones, and social media and took photos and videos of everything enter politics more and more, already happening with some, the old days of being able to hide/make things disappear will be near impossible with the instagram generation.

Dublin airport is a bit of a maze. Passport inspection is hilarious though.

Are you there as we speak?

If so, have breakfast in the upstairs restaurant. Recommended.

Every so often I'll get an old picture of one of the kids that I was tagged in, which is nice to see. Luckily, I stopped actively posting status updates beyond some generic comment on Liverpool's league performances some time around 2011/12 so there's that. I'd say the majority of my 'memories' are pictures my wife tagged me in.

Maybe a few cautionary tales from those who came after us when they become parents might help mitigate that. Once Gen Z start having kids, they should be able to use their own cringeworthy exploits as a warning.

Or that might also be a load of shite, so who knows? Won't be my problem either way

Last time we were there, I'm not sure the Irish immigration person even looked at our passports. Just stamped us in and on through we went to get our bags. Great stuff.

Hi Vascou and a very warm welcome to the forum from me

Maybe a little spell watching from the sidelines will lead to eventual enlightenment?
