So long as this exercise in brain rot hasn't eroded your ability to string words together in ways that make my brain go 'ooooooh, pretty!'

you know, there's an irish expression, "bad cess" as in "bad cess to the luck that brought me through, to work upon the railway" (from an old song).

i always wondered what that meant. apparently, it is cursing someone or something with a nasty tax.

I find it difficult to believe that the Irish could possibly have such a pessimistic outlook on life, their literature is always so bright and bubbly.

then there's the meaning "pool", from which the whole cesspit/pool/swampy miasma thing comes from. it's very confusing. I suppose there could be more than one etymology.

a... haunted fog?

o'neill was just as drunk as the rest of them. but I am sure there's got to be at least one exception.
