A small location on the western edge of Europe, it has a long and colourful history.
After 600 years of oppression, and several previous attempts (which coined the phrase The fighting Irish - As they never lay down and accepted occupiers) the Irish revolted in 1916 to go on a defeat the British empire and force them to withdraw from the nation.
Humiliated, the British made an agreement to leave the Island, except for 6 northern counties to save face from absolute defeat. Ireland has been the thorn in Britains side for centuries.
The withdrawl was due to several reasons.
1/ International condemnation and pressure for their treatment of the Irish.
2/ The brittish were unable to control the Irish as every man in the street was willing to lay down his life for his country and his freedom.
3/ The losing battle they were fighting on the streets of Dublin and towns around the country was humiliating for an Empire.
Irelands population was once peaked at 12 million in the 1800s.... a century on, the Irish population is 3.5 million.
This is due to brittish rule forcing famine around the country in which millions of innocent people starved to death or died of the plague and hundreds of thousands of others were forced to emigrate, mostly to the USA, Australia and Argentina.
After the Brittish left, the Irish fell into civil war over the agreement to let them leave and keep the 6 counties. Some were for this, as the Brittish were fucking off, some were against it as they were willing to keep fighting them until they surrenderd and withdrew unconditionaly.
The only reason Northern Ireland is still under UK control is that during the civil war in the south, brittish plantations were put in the north, sending over hundreds of thousands of UK citizens to dilute the Irish population in these parts and heavy millitary guard, the northern Irish people went on to be treated like shit as the south tried to resolve its internal political problems.
In the 60s, another Irish uprising was born in the form of the IRAs bombing campaign. After terrorisng the brittish forces in Northern Ireland, again the Brittish allowed it to fall into chaos and lost complete control.
This resulted in Bloody Sunday, when Brittish soldiers marched into an Irish estate and gunned down several innocent, unarmed irish people, including women and children, seemingly shooting at random and at those aiding the injured.
Outraged, the Irish brought the bombin campaign to London where they caused chaos once more. The most notable and audacious boming was on the Brittish Government.
The IRA bombed a hotel the entire Brittish government were staying in, unfortunatly, failing to kill their leader, maggie thatcher.
For this, throughout the 80s and to a lesser extent, there is still racisim from brittish people towards the Irish for their assault on the UK. If they were educated enough, they would understand that this was a drop in the ocean compared to what they have done to the Irish over the last 600 years.
Its only a matter of time before Northern Ireland comes back into Irish control as the Brittish government no longer really holds an interest in it as there has peace between our nations for 20 years.
Some may hold contempt towards us, but we dont really give a shit, because we all hate them anyway, and we took our country back, so we really couldnt give a fuck what they do or think over there.
Goldie: A fun, loving, outgoing person. Always cheerful and there for you when you need her the most. A typical Goldie usually has blonde hair. She changes it often though. Shes also well-noted for being spontaneous and random. A Goldie is a good friend that you will never want to lose. Shes an amazing person inside and out. Shes also a very beautiful woman. To have and know a Goldie is a treasure best kept. Also, she has some bomb ass pussy.
A largely pointless and futile gathering point, whereby simple imbeciles proceed to flail about to obnoxiously loud music, whilst chemically inconvenienced.
Most of these events require the participent to have previously consumed various obscurce and intelligence-rotting narcotic substances, in a misguided attempt to keep that person over there from doing anything to them that might involve rusty hooks and possibly salt.
For this definition, we will focus on a [transverse] flute.
Transverse flutes are medium-long, thin, and hollow. Most modern flutes are made of silver or other metals. They are comprised of 3 parts: A headjoint, a midjoint, and a footjoint. The headjoint holds the mouthpiece. The midjoint has nearly all the keys. The footjoint contains the rest of the keys. At first glance, the keys on a flute may seem overwhelming and confusing, but after a year or two of practice, you will understand them. A special extra joint can also be purchased to aid a flute in playing lower notes.
Flutes are in concert [pitch], meaning that when playing a band, you do not need to [transpose].
Flutes are the only woodwind with sound produced by the vibration of air, as opposed to a [reed]. Because of this, experienced or moderately-experience flautists can play very beautiful tones. However, inexperienced flutists can end up sounding squeaky or harsh.
As other definitions say flutes can make excellent weapons, although I prefer the long, thin, blunt object approach. The many holes from the keys do not lend the flute well to a blowgun.
If you play flute, you are very cool!
