    UK - peak gym ?

    Worth a try. I might just move the stepper into the living room and keep it there so I could just watch the telly. It's not like I'm going to have a woman around living in NI

    UK - peak gym ?

    and you will probably outlive the gym bunnies. My fitness goal is pretty simple. I'm in my 40s now and work in a office environment, sitting all day. I just want to keep the gut away. I have been on my hols now for the past couple of weeks and have an easy access to a pool which I use most days. I can see the lbs dropping off. At home it would take me 30 minutes to drive to a pool so I have a step machine in the house. It is boring as feck. 30 mins on it seems like and eternity whereas 30 mins in a pool flies by.

    Deluded Old Scrapper Birds On Dating Sites

    Thanks for this great information Frank. Yes, it is head scratching hearing it for the 1st time but eye opening. You say: "The bottom line is that each year I am refunded all of my PAYE income tax plus I get the free £6k for my £24k SIPP" Does that mean for example if I had £24k cash in the bank each year from my income. I could put it all in a SIPP and get an extra top up of £6k by the government and PAYE paid refunded? What is the minimum amount to put into a SIPP to get the £6k? Yes this needs its own thread.

    Organ Donation

    I remember years ago growing up my mum telling me don't be getting a donor card. Her thinking was that if you are on the surgeons table after an accident and the surgeon knew you where on the register, he might not try as hard.

    Billy Connolly for me and not sure if this counts but Larry David and Curb. One of the few non PC comedies out there.

    New populist party - do you think the UK is ready for one?

    Wheels are in motion to unite European Conservatives. "Bannon will set up a Brussels-based non-profit NGO called "The Movement" which will go head to head with Soros - with the goal of uniting like-minded European parties and various conservative think tanks along with other support structures."

    Are Banking Implants The Future For Transactions?

    "And the second beast required all people small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark—the name of the beast or the number of its name" Revelation 13:16

    The return of communism

    My life has followed the old quote attributed to Churchil "“If a man is not a socialist by the time he is 20, he has no heart. If he is not a conservative by the time he is 40, he has no brain.” In my 20s I would have been left of left on the political spectrum. In my 40s now and would be very very conservative. I have been to Cuba many times. Once joining the international work brigades spending a few months doing manual labour in Havana. During these months we met with members of Communist party and seen the inner workings of the state. Feck even Fidel's brother met us at the welcome ceremony. My conclusion about Cuban communism is that their heart is in the right place. It was easy for the revolution to win in Cuba because the previous dictator Batista was a right cunt. The US embargo actually helps the Communist party to remain. The embargo is an easy Bogeyman man to have. Communism will never work as it is against human nature. If everyone get's the same wage, where is the incentive to work? to innovate and to advance human development. There is none. Capitalism is not perfect but I prefer to live in a faulty capitalist society than any communist country.

    Qanon: high level intel, AI or LARP?!

    Reading her wiki page she was in Happy Days so that would explain the connection. I also haven't heard a single bad thing about him.

    He is a smart guy. For his sake I hope he has dynamite information and a dead man's switch in place. It may be the only thing that will keep him alive.
