  1. With all this talk about AI, and government programs about retraining, and even a special session at the 2019 Builder Burger (I wasn't invited), I can't help think we are on the cusp of a big AI take over in the next decade, and many people will be put on the unemployment scrapheap, and become part time activists to while away the time. They better give the masses a purpose, or they'll be a lot of civil unrest. You can't have it both ways - cheap/no cost labour, and the economy working for the 1%. Hold on to your assets (looks [become a social media influence], financial [asset manager], qualifications[un AI-able jobs]), that will be the only thing that will set you apart from the masses. It could be Blockbuster all over again but on a grander scale.
  2. I can't help thinking that there are people are profiting from both sides of this. There are quite a few boats made for Extinction Rebellion - has someone started a factory and selling these to local groups? I see they have banned boats now.
  3. Did you know that we have been in a bear market in oil for nearly a decade? Iran 'confiscates' British tanker with 23 crew on board 'for failing to respect maritime rules' in major escalation of tensions in the Gulf - as fears mount for SECOND 'diverted' vessel https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7266005/Iran-Guards-say-confiscated-British-tanker-Strait-Hormuz.html#comments Don't actually recommend buying a "CRUD" ETF because over time there is a cost of holding because of "contango". But the chart illustrates where we have been.
  4. Anyone remember Jane's 688 Hunter Killer on the PC (Nuclear Submarine Simulation), that came out in 1997. Very similar scenarios are being played out. One of the missions was in this location, where tankers are being targeted, and your job is to protect them!
  5. ^These seem to be getting traction. There are quite a few sellers.
  6. This murder happened, probably within a 15 minute walk from where we are. There is a wide variance of people that live here. Some really have been left behind, and you do think how the heck people survive like this, but they do.
  7. I am planning to make a video and put it on youtube. "If I am found dead - investigate, it wasn't suicide"
  8. Internet crime is an easy win - you have the evidence, you have witnesses, it's all logged.
  9. PDG car dealerships stock price has dropped by 50% over 2019
  10. Gold finally making a decisive move $1,430! Ray Dalio - impeccable timing on this thread again . Is bullish for gold 17th July 2019 https://finance.yahoo.com/news/bridgewater-tycoon-gold-shilling-insanely-191533445.html Ray Dalio says gold will be a top investment during upcoming ‘paradigm shift’ for global markets
  11. Also saw a young lad with a pimped up Series 3 BMW this week. It caused a bit of a traffic jam on the Redbridge causeway, because he ran out of fuel smack bang at the traffic lights and had to run to up the road to the Shell garage to buy fuel using a plastic jerry can. Two lanes became one. I haven't seen that kind of problem for while. Money is getting a bit tight.

    Oh and that bike went for £226 quid!
  13. But don't people say have some sort of health problem that excuses them for their behaviour? Perhaps the worm has turned. If you burgle a shop, you can't say you have some sort of health problem or going through a rough patch (for the 10th time) - the shop can now give you a bill for the damages.
  14. There has been talk of a global slow down, China, Europe etc. We are well over due for a recession - there is usually a recession every decade. The last one was in 2008. A mixture of healthcare, retail, cleaning services. These are all private sector.
  15. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-essex-49017838 Stansted 'disruptive passenger': Woman faces £85,000 bill About time ? "the customer is always right" has probably gone too far. You can only appease for so long, and to prevent bad behaviour you're going to have to hurt people in their pockets.
