Comment Re:Check out the Netflix documentary "The Irish Pu (Score 1) 537

Often pubs are full of sad, drunk bastards. I just want to chill with a drink and catch up with what my friends and family are doing around the world on facebook (or the 4 messaging apps you need to have installed because federated services are still some years in the future), read the news etc, and not get involved with someone who looks like they've not left the pub to do any exercise in the last 30 years. Irish pubs are especially bad for unstable idiots looking for a fight, even by UK standards of drunken idiocy.

Kat has disappeared. There aren't any more major torrent sites; they're going to get squashed pretty quickly nowadays. Kat took stuff down pretty quickly, unlike piratebay, but that's always "down for database maintenance"; assuming it has what you're after anyway, which isn't a safe bet these days.
