Re the 'fixing things' approach (when someone tells you their troubles), that's not just a men thing - a lot of women do that too.

Don't fix things. Just listen. Or something. :P

I think a few of the sci-fi fans here will appreciate this short:

That was really well done.

Read after watching
I really wanted to see them make it across. It was disappointing at the end.

yes ;D :up:

what's her accent - sounds like Montana?
Remember that Coen brother's film set in Montana? I cant remember the name, hang on - Fargo - the same accent - it's funny cause it's reminiscent of a Wexford accent at times (SE-most county in Ireland). They say 'Hun' there as well. I remember someone claiming the word came from one of the Scandanavian languages (and is not a short version of 'honey'), which might make sense in terms of Montana - with Wexford, it was a long time since the vikings visited (8th-10thC), but many did settle in Ireland, and there are still signs of their presence in place-names, and surnames - and possibly in the language (I'm no expert here).

Oh, it's a Canadian accent alright. :)

I have quite a few friends that have elements of that accent.

It's taken me almost 2 decades outside of Canada to be able to hear those "Canadian" bits of accent. They range from really thin to extremely thick. And I still can't for the life of me hear the "about" thing -- which on many occasions has betrayed me as Canadian to some discerning listeners.

One journalist that I like, Dan Dicks, has a light accent, but it's definitely there. Another journalist that I like, James Corbett, has virtually zero "Canadian" accent that I can hear. (I think my accent is like James' and not Dan's, but I'm in no place to judge properly.)

A lot of Irish did immigrate/flee to Canada. I'm not sure about the Irish slaves though. It would've made sense for Irish slave to flee to Canada, but I'm just not up on my history enough to know/comment.

no, it was straightforward emigration - well, a spot of bother with the landlords, and, you'll love this one:

With no taxes or tithes, to devour up your wages
When you're on the green fields of Americae




Lyrics: The Green Fields of Canada
CHERISH THE LADIES

The Green Fields Of Canada

Farewell to the groves, of shillelagh and shamrock
Farewell to the wee girls, of old Ireland all 'round
May their hearts be as merry, as ever I would wish them
When far, far away, across the ocean I'm bound

Oh my father is old, and my mother is quite feeble
To leave their own country, it grieves their heart sore
Oh the tears in great drops, down their cheeks they are rolling
To think they must die, upon some foreign shore

But what matters to me, where my bones may be buried
If in peace and contentment, I can spend my life
Oh the green fields of Canada, they are daily a blooming
And it's there I'll put an end, to my miseries and strife

So pack up your sea stores, and tarry no longer
Ten dollars a week, isn't very bad pay
With no taxes or tithes, to devour up your wages
When you're on the green fields of Americae

The sheep run unshorn, and the land's gone to rushes
The handyman is gone, and the winders of creels
Away across the ocean, go journeyman tailors
And fiddlers that play out, the old mountain reels

Farewell to the dances, in homes now deserted
When tips struck the lightening, in sparks from the floor
The paving and crigging, of hobnails on flagstones
The tears of the old folk, and shouts of encore

For the landlords and bailiffs, in vile combination
Have forced us from hearth stone, and homestead away
May the crowbar brigade, all be doomed to damnation
When we're on the green fields, of America

And it's now to conclude, and to finish my story
If e'er friendless Irishmen chance my way
With the best in the house, I will treat him and welcome
At home in the green fields of America

I'm sorry, but I can't respond here. See you in the basement. The beauty has been spoiled. Destroyed. And even speaking of that is now "controversial" or "blasphemy".

FWIW - It was a beautiful song.

yes, a great version too - by Cherish The Ladies


This one is pretty downbeat, a gut-wrencher really :-) great cinematography though (I always want to say photography) and good music - it's actually a music video, but more of a video with music - oh just watch it and figure it out for yourselves ;-)

This is a short series called "Liquor Stories". 8)

Narrated by Jim Lahey!

https://www.swearnet...seasons/1/episodes/1

''...every drop of liquor tells a different story!"

The rest is paid content, but you can buy a month subscription for $4.20. And that's $4.20 USD or CAD! And you can pay in Bitcoin. (Download speeds are FAST - surprisingly so. But, it's all streaming.)

And yes, it's brought to you by the Trailer Park Boys!

I'd guess it runs on compressed air (CO2) cartridges, like paintball guns. And also it doesn't look like it moves very fast. Some of those shots looked like they were done in slow motion, but I think they were actually full-speed.

Compressed air sounds logical.
I think the engine can go faster (~30mph - or was it kmph) but they're afraid it might just disintegrate....

Ok, so I finally took a peek at a few of these posts and I must say, I take exception with this one. ::)
SOUNDS LIKE MONTANA??  The Coen brother's file set in Montana?
Oy.
Try North Dakota.  Hello?  Fargo?  As in, Fargo, North Dakota?  THEY talk like that over there, NOT here!  lol.
I can hear it in my head...  "Ya, sure, you betcha"
</tongue in cheek>
