- nobody will notice/complain around you that you drink too much
- if you wear enough make-up it doesn't matter how fat and ugly you are
- you can live on coke and hot chips with vinegar poured on it for weeks
- if you run a business you don't have to call back anybody, ever
- you don't have to use a tissue, just spit it out. on the floor. in a restaurant.
- you don't have to indicate, or learn how to drive
- you can smoke at the assembly point during a fire drill
- you can pretend you have public transport and health service
- if you spill the coffee/tea beside the vending machine, you don't have to clean up after yourself

I think Dublin is amazing in small doses. I can see why you would hate living there, everyone is in a panic to go everywhere. Anyone I have spoken to in a cafe/shop/ pub has been really nice.

I despise Belfast, I have no reason to hate it but I do

I prefer the country. I actually was driving back from roscommon on friday evening and I enjoyed seeing fields and people from the country doing there thing and travelling for an hour and actually getting more than 5 km like I do in Dublin and not having to change gear from 1st-2nd-3rd repeat four thosand times a day.

I love cork city due to it's size it's the perfect size of a place. Where as Dublin is a pain to travel in, you can't turn right, you can't turn left. Parking is hideously expensive, people are obnoxous well the people I deal with.

I sorta miss all of that on the bike, I filter though traffic and park on a footpath but I can see how annoying it would be in a car.

I think I'll give the night out a miss, I'm a bit far away

I don't live too far from there actually, Milltown direction...

I use the bike most of the time too - rare enough that I drive into the city - Alfa is kept for pleasure trips mostly now. And I'm sure I could manage a pint or two at some stage - It's not all a hovel...! (now Cork, on the other hand.....)
