I don't think Robin Van Persie is his real name. He changed it from Thieving Van Penis.

Re: Call me sceptical if you will, but...

>In America, celebrity 'I'm sorry's are usually followed by 'God has forgiven me, so why can't you?'

The correct reply to this is "No, I haven't"

Re: Call me sceptical if you will, but...

Unfortunately, in America, they really do believe that saying "sorry" is all that is required. How often have you heard the phrase "I've said I'm sorry; what more do you want?"

In order for an apology to be truly meaningful, there needs to be an understanding of the distress caused; a genuine feeling of regret for causing this distress; and a desire to never cause the same distress again in the future. Most apologies fail at least 2 out of 3 of these points (I'm looking at you public transport).

Translation from BS to normal speech...

"Nokia is focusing on growing its presence in operator and third-party retail outlets, rather than through our own physical stores. We are, of course, also continuously beefing up our online presence."

Thanks RyanAir...

There used to be a decent air service between Dublin and Cork- it was run by Aer Arran as a EU POS. Then Ryanair came in, edged them out and eventually decided not to service the route anymore. I think the same thing happened with Dublin to Kerry too.

Agreed totally. In fact the "hobbyist" nature of building your own 3d printer reminds me of the same thing happening with people building their own plotters in the 80s.
