Very tough and durable
That mutt was (as) tough as nails when cornered.
The second largest group in america, after the germans. Presidents Reagan and Kennedy were Irish and Bill Clinton was half-irish. Tougher than nails, they are regarded as great fighters and even greater writers. (Think Joyce, Yeats, Doyle, etc.) Once looked down upon (by the boring ass wasps..) they rose up through the ranks of American society and are now one of the most popular and successful groups in the country.
George Clooney, Harrison Ford, Sean Penn, Conan O'Brien, Tom Brady, Sharon Stone, Vince McMahon, Brian Williams, Jack Welch, Carson Daly, Nolan Ryan, Dennis Leary, Pat Riley, Dropkick Murphys, JFK, Tom Clancy, Lindsay Lohan, Jenny McCarthy, are all Irish-Americans

Most mountain bikes, though, are bought for fairly cheap, sometimes under $100, at department stores under brands such as Mongoose, Schwinn, or Magna. These "mountain bikes" are covered with fancy graphics, lots of gears, and suspension, but actually work very poorly:
1) The components are all bottom-of-the line, even if they have good names such as Shimano. They are heavy, poorly machined, and wear out or break quickly. The gears will usually grind and skip no matter how well you adjust them. Rims are often steel, which quickly rusts and bends out of round, is very heavy, and is never seen on decent wheels.
2) They are no fun to ride. Most of them weight at least 31-35 pounds, and the full-suspension models weigh around 45! Try riding up a hill on one of these. Most people just ride them around the streets, and the knobby tires soak up so much energy you can actually hear it. Full suspension will completely absorb any power you put out. It feels like riding through mud.
Mountain bikes are extremely popular, though, accounting for over 90% of all bikes on the average college campus. They are easier to ride than road bikes, but will prevent you from ever enjoying bike riding. If they are used for off-road use, they simply bec...

A type of shoe construction popular during the 17th century. Roan bindings were tougher than most common ones because not only were the points of the shoe nails dummied to provide tighter grip, but a unique, more water-resistant glue was used.
Today, a pair of roan-bound shoes is potentially worth thousands of dollars.
