Nuclear sunbeds — 18 Comments

  1. Sunbeds do have a good use, although probably not the intended one. I suffered from Psoriasis from my mid teens to my early twenties. I used all the foul smelling creams and other crap that the doctors gave me but nothing worked.

    Two weeks of sunbed sessions every other day cleared it up completely and it never came back. I'm glad these nitwits weren't around to ban sunbeds back then, I'd still be suffering now.

    • Fair play!  They do have the odd use all right.  I presume you were responsible enough to not go a full eight hours on the maximum setting?  How did you manage without regulation? 

  2. I refuse to use electric blankets ever since a near incineration of a family member many years ago when an old blanket shortwired and smouldered foul rubber fumes before erupting in flames. I use the good old hot water bottle in emergencies. I never went in for suntans either, so I’ve no use for expensive sunbeds.

    • I don't trust electric blankets either.  I prefer a warm woman should the need for warmth arise.

      • An ecologically acceptable, renewable energy resource. Age no barrier. The greens would probably agree with your position Grandad.

  3. Will they cook 2 dozen "bangers" at one go, dark brown all round, without the bother of turning them?

    PS to Bucko: That's remarkable and good on you; but we don't usually learn of the good news.

    • Save yourself the trouble and just chuck a full pig in.  He should come out nice and crispy all over?  Don't forget to give him safety goggles though.

  4. Gratuitous bird in a bikini picture showing dumb and dumber what sunbeds are used for. Just for fun I told myself the bird was Kathleen so I googled her picture and fuck me she looks like Arnott's sister.

  5. Don't ignore the fact that much of this modern 'regulation' is no such thing. Often it has two much more important effects.

    Firstly it is a way to make people pay for a license and as such is no more than a form of taxation on the 'regulated' activity. In a good example it will also swell the ranks of government employment – obviously regulation need regulators.

    Secondly it allows the prodnoses access to more private premises where they will no doubt also be on the lookout for any other activities.

    • You forgot the most important one – regulations mean transgressions, and transgressions mean FINES.  More regular cash for the greedy coffers.

  6. When I was a kid I suffered from excema, it was the worst in the winter but after the summer holidays of care free frolicking with just a pair of swimming trunks it would clear up almost completely, apparently it was the U.V. rays, they help clear up certain skin conditions, I find it depressing that Ireland is so under the boot of the E.U. so ably abetted by your Quisling politictians, I wonder when they will start to try to outlaw the road racing?
