possibly holding up development on Windows 8.

So, this is good, right?

I don't think it was leprechauns, more likely penguins in disguise

A black suit with a white tank top? You might be on to something there!

Re: possibly holding up development on Windows 8.

Reading the story I immediately thought it will be a 'Press Gang' of Oompa-Loompas from the chocolate factory. But yes the white tank top ..... Marxist revolutionary penguin guerrilla snatch squads at work.

Leprechauns have a sordid history

We already know they told Ralph Wiggum to burn things.

WTF?

And If i feckin hear "Southern Ireland"...............

or that the dopey yanks think that we all go round saying "top o' the mornin to yeah" or some such horsemuck....

OR the clowns who think stonehenge is in Ireland, and that Ireland is still part of the UK...

OR the morons who think that Ulster IS Northern Ireland.....

AND that its LondonDerry not Derry City....

I am going to start funding ET, Al Queda, The Pope, Ian Paisley, whoever it takes to wipe a whole continent clean and start with a cleaner genetic profile.

And having spend a time in Southern Ca. "working/remunerted for my employment" you would be surprised at the stupid things people believe there, or to Quote the Edge from U2 "You know your strange when you stop finding L.A. strange"

Well here's to the People's Republic of Cork!!

Re: And If i feckin hear "Southern Ireland"...............

Fuck up you Irish Republican zealot - you are from Southern Ireland - Ireland is an island. Londonderry is the original and official name of the city. And Northern Ireland is modern Ulster.

Re: And If i feckin hear "Southern Ireland"...............

Mmm, couldn't be much more wrong if you tried. Southern Ireland is not an official name, it's Republic of Ireland if you want to be proper. The reason southern Ireland is an annoying name is the most northerly point and county on the Island is in the republic, so calling it the south is silly at best. Derry is the original name, London may have been added a few hundred years ago but Derry is still the original. And part of Ulster is in the republic/ south/ eire/ 26 counties, simply wishing it isn't doesn't make it so.

"Southern Ireland", Seattle

Back at ya, Seattle is a significant distance from the Microsoft Redmond campus. Redmond is on the other side of a rather large lake from Seattle. Although, to be fair, Seattle is in the same county of the same state as Redmond. which isn't nearly as big a faux pas.

This story does,

come up a little short for Resister standards, (although it did make me chuckle - but beer was probably the culprit).

Hobbits?

It is possible that the assailants were hobbits. During a street brawl that sort of misidentification is easy to make.
