08:35 am - Border-jumping from Ireland to England
Last night I had a dream.

In this dream, I was thinking about the border between Ireland and England. I believe I've always felt that it was kinda like the US-Mexico border (England being the "US" and Ireland being "Mexico" in this analogy), even though there's something called the Irish Sea between them.

To account for this, I envisioned that someone from Ireland could teleport to England, and that someone from England could teleport to Ireland.

The funny thing was this: Those coming from England to Ireland ended up in Belfast. Those going from Ireland to England ended up in jail.

It would be, but I don't know anything about Irish-English politics. Well, other than that the Irish like to bomb the English. I understand it's almost as big a pasttime as football.

There's a tiny subsection of the population who are still armed, mostly based in Northern Ireland (which is still part of the UK and not the Republic of Ireland). And many of those types care far less about "liberating" Ireland than making profits from armed crime.

Here's something resembling a proper (if extremely concise) chronology of Northern Ireland.
