    3 in an hour is fairly leisurely for myself. 
    Few of my pals do 4-5 in an hour no bother.

    Used to be five pints in four hours when I was in my late teens and twenties.  And maybe the odd Southern Comfort & lemonade after.

    Two hours and two or three pints is enough for me.

    Definitely. It's just the right point to move onto the next pub.

    UmBongo reacted to TheBlueCat in Ghislaine didn't kill herself   
    The strangest thing about this whole saga to me is the boat. So Captain Bob Bob Bob named his yacht The Lady Ghislaine after his daughter and then promptly falls off it when it comes out he’s been embezzling the Mirror group’s pension scheme. Years later, the same daughter persuades her pederast boyfriend to buy it. I mean, would you want to buy the car you dad crashed and died in for comparison? Moving into conspiraloon territory for a moment, I have wondered if there was something about the yacht that only she knows and that she wanted to be sure no-one else would have the chance to find out.

    Coercion and trafficking.
    The girls were mainly from troubled backgrounds so had no safe family home they could call.
    Think of that Prince Andrew picture. The girl, Virginia, is 17, in a foreign country, has no money and nowhere to go. The adults who surround her have no interest in her beyond sex and supplying her for sex to their advantage.
    If she thinks the alternative to having sex with whoever is to find herself thrown out of the front door in a strange country with only the clothes she is wearing and no passport or money then she will probably do it as she has little choice.
    Even less than the underage girls that muslim grooming gangs drive up to the high moors and threaten to abandon if they don't have sex; they can walk away and some do. Farmhouses up there are used to little girls knocking on their doors in the middle of the night because they have had the courage to walk away.
    And as @JackieO noted some of the girls are alleged to have been younger.

    UmBongo reacted to The Masked Tulip in Ghislaine didn't kill herself   
    The charges against her are very detailed.
    They talk about her grooming children for sex by massage, being present why they undressed and / or undressing in front of them.
    The charges talk about her making victims feel at ease because she was a woman. Making the victims feel that they were indebted to her and Epstein. Having sex with children. That she facilitated access to victims for Epstein knowing full well that he enjoyed sex with underage girls.
    The charges go on and on about multiple minor victims. They mention the locations where these events happened in NY, at Epstein's house and, wait for this, at her London property.

    To lose one prisoner may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose two looks like carelessness.

    I'm fine with people from Hong Kong and would be fine with the 350k Uk passport holders but THREE MILLION?
    THREE SODDING MILLION?
    The country is stupidly overcrowded now.
    And this is on top of the 300k a year let in every year anyway.
    Airstrip one is filling up nicely.

    I don't think I'll ever consider a place home. It's just somewhere to live while I do stuff.
    Rented since leaving home for uni at 18. Now 33 years ago. Never been home since 18 for more than a week at a time. For the first 5 years I lived on a farm where i worked in weekends in lieu of some of the rent. Then I rented for  7 years as I moved house or country around every 6 months. All that time I had no more posessions than would fit in two suitcases; I could still move house with just a Luton van, however with space left in side.
    I've always sought to spend the minimum on rent. So properties have always been basic.
    Because I was itinerant for 7 years I didn't care about location or quality. For 6 months I once lived in a house that was a shell with many of the floorboords missing. Another time I rented from a mercenary that after each trip to some country to kill someone would come back and on the first night smash everything in the place in a rampage to de-stress and not fix it up for weeks. Lots of interesting experiences.
    I grew up in an owned home and so that was the model of living I knew. So once I stopped moving I thought the next step wold be buying. But I found I was priced out, or rather it made more economic sence to rent. 
    So I focused on location and as cheap as possible. I landed on my feet - right place, right day to buy the local newspaper. I've now rented the same property for 25 years. It wouldn't suit everybody. Small, unheated, damp without a dehunidifier. But location to die for, for me at least.
    I still don't care about the property, it's just somewhere to live.  For example, 25% of the tiles in the bathroom are piled in the corner. They fell off the wall in a 'sheet' 8 years ago. Landlord was going to put them back but hasn't got around to it yet and I can't be bothered as "what's the real point ?" I only spend about 20 minutes in the room each day.
    I've got friends with 'lovely houses" and yes I can see that they are nice. Nicely decorated, beautiful kitchens etc. Lovely to look at. A bit like going to a museum. But I've never sat in any place I've lived and 'looked at it'. Similarly, I can't understand people that consider what the outside of a house looks like if they are buying it - You never look at the outside, you only ever look out through the windows. The most important thing for me would be how private is the garden and how much sunlight does it get.

    I’ve always liked this place. It has a long private drive at the end of a quiet shore road situated at Balcary bay, Auchencairn, Dumfries & Galloway.
