  1. Past hour
  2. can I interest you in a NeXT work station? There is some ASCII porn on it.
  3. A think tank suggests an idea so spectacularly designed to lose votes that not even Treason May would have gone for it and the Mirror immediately states it as Tory policy. Really?
  4. The problem will come for them when velocity starts to run.They don't model it as they believe inflation is purely a monetary phenomenon.Once it runs,they won't get it back in the bag without some hard medicine and given how by then they'll have destroyed the balance sheets of most banks,there's no real predicting what'll be left of the usual conduits to reflate the economy. How are things going in the wider buidling trade B&M>?Any change from when you last updated us. We haven't sold any PM miners.Time will tell if that's a mistake

    Say it three times, and CSMA/CD never was!
  6. Operation Black Vote is alive and kicking, and reminding us of how White privilege impinges on so many areas of our lives: https://www.obv.org.uk/news-blogs/has-white-privilege-once-again-defeated-caster-semenya
  7. Hmm, I must get round to clearing some of the stuff I’ve accumulated. There was a chap who lived just down the road who died a year or so ago. Late 50s I think. He had a heart attack I was told. His brother cleared his house. A skip was put outside and was filled with his possessions. It made me think we spend our lives accumulating stuff. At the end of the day it’s someone else’s problem to dispose of. Sad.
  8. Now there’s a blast from the past. A bunch of people I worked with back in Cambridge days came out of Madge. Never thought I’d hear that name again.
  9. I'm intigued by the gold:silver ratio.Worth noting that it bottomed Jan 82 at the saem time as silver peaked. Also worth noting that the April 11 peak in silver also coincided with a bottom in the Gold:silver ratio at 30. If gold goes up from here,tehn that gives silver some real upside.
  10. I'd go along with the following stetement whole heartedly "There is no thinking involved - if you are thinking you are missing the music" It is all about the music. You shouldn't have to think. With animals (and young children) they can tell if you are having to think and that pisses them off because they know what they want. Police, hunt and gypsy horses are bomb proof because the person and the animal are both enjoying the music.

    "Sit on mowers". Wow! Something I don't have.
  12. Jeezo! They couldn't have made it any better/worse by photoshopping Hitler onto the RHS. Black Vote, let's spin that around and see how it sounds and looks: "White Vote", with a picture of a young white middle class family on the LHS of the see-saw and a pack of rapey, stabbers on the RHS. Would we be allowed to have WV : Operation White Vote??!
  13. There's some ''Four Yorkshiremen'' shit going down here, mind - make no mistake about it. Lying trio of cunts... XYY
  14. God, I had that with my mom when my dad died. A house full of "priceless antiquities Dave!" she told me "pennies in the pound, that's what you want to sell them for" ... "you are only after my money" etc. She did have some nice furniture but I told my mom everyone just goes to Ikea, no one has room for a 19th century oak sideboard. I probably spent a month clearing what I could (ie taking to the dump until they banned me) and my mom tried to garage sale a lot for "pennies in the pound" as she said again. Due to blowing all her retirement money in a 10 year spending spree she had to move out of her big house into a granny flat but she still insisted in moving all her furniture to my uncles garage costing thousands in removal feed only to find all the antiques were eventually worth less than what it cost to move the stuff. My dad was a hoarder but they'd progressively moved to bigger houses as his crap overflowed the old premises. The last house, out in the sticks, had outbuildings and I was shocked to find them full... and mum's bank account (which had had 400K in from a house sale) empty. One of the out buildings had 3 sit on mowers that I had a lot of trouble to sell. They also had built a swimming pool that contained green, stagnant water - although nothing that industrial levels of bleech couldn't fix - hope the new owners tested the pH before taking a plunge.... anyway I resolved not to ever have my son in the same situation and the missus and I have been getting rid of stuff like we're going to be plucked off the embassy roof in Saigon.

    The idiot question, when you have deliberately stated "collect only", is "how much to ship to Brazil?"
  16. Thanks for this tip off. Alternate options - VCT's
  17. The CSJ claims are bollocks because state Pension money like all income of that sort gets spent and taxed. Remove it from the system without providing an alternative and watch the economy tank.
  18. IF i was BJ i would be taking this a sure sign he`s going to see a vote of no confidence ASAP This could work out very well on the pensions front ,we know all politicians are short termist ,my money would be him reversing the the last pension age hike 65 to 67 if this story gains traction just to put it to bed
  19. The problem will be made much worse because of the number of singletons by then my mates only half jokeing about moveing his 50 year old girlfriend in he is 60 when he says I retire at 66 she will be bringing a wage in for 10 years after that
  20. If employed work was enjoyable than many would enjoy working The thing is, most managers are wankers Even enjoyment in vocational work has been destroyed in most cases The self-employed often carry on well after state retiremnet.
  21. Unless his name is Wayne

    Clocks?

    at least it wasnt something really wierd like a bus, or even stranger a bus on time.
  23. Maybe I'm misunderstanding the argument here but things like CNA adn VOD won't get hit much if there is a passive ETF sell off(quite likely imho),they form small parts of the most actively traded ETF's. The ETF sell off wouldn't have a liquidity problem,as genreally,they hold liquid tradeable assets either options or shares. There's is another option and that's to let rates normalise,which is I susect where we wll end up a la Volcker Negatve rates won't last long as they'll destroy whats left of th EU banking system,bt that hasn't stopped the CBers trying.Quite incredible how they can look the evidence of their failure in the face and then try and do the same thing another time in the hope of a differnet result
  24. It is on the Mirror website and they own the Sunday People so my guess is they will run it in that paper or in tomorrows Mirror group papers

    Here's something surreal I spotted at Northampton bus station. Very Magritte?
