    Inoperational Bumblebee reacted to Cunning Plan in Starting your own business   
    No. What he needs is the capital to enable him to make nothing for six months.
    As soon as he takes on a member of staff to do the work, he has made himself unemployed for a few months whilst he builds up more clients to keep two of them busy.
    He then needs a website, an accountant, paye skills etc.
    Assuming the two of them are fully occupied, he then needs to up his prices by 20% to cover the vat so he will lose work to the one man band that can undercut him.
    Assuming he gets past that, he can employ a second person. He probably now needs an office as most leases ban working from home, which will push him back down the snake again.

    My phone keeps asking me to take photo's whenever I visit a place, even if that place is my local Aldi store........ What i've started doing is taking photos of the urinals in any establishment Google tries to tell me to take a photo of

    F**K OFF.
    Delete everything connected with google from any devices you have. Do not use google to search, email or anything else. It's a toxic company and deserves to be shunned.

    Go and stand by all your local mosques and kebab shops and when asked the same question, give it the full 5 stars.
     
     
    What do you mean it won't ask that question?.......

    They are trying to get you to subscribe to the paid version of youtube by attrition.
    Remember, anything American is either spying on you or wants money.

    Sitting?  How long since you were last on a train?

    No they fucking well don't, if they're genuine asylum seekers.

    Deutsche Bank currently sitting at all time lows of 7.52, down from 17.12 one year ago, 31 five years ago and pre-2008 peaks of 88!
    Bad times for a bank with the biggest derivative exposure!

    If I was forced to put a bet on the next Tory leader it would be Sajid Javid. I think he's just thrown his hat in the ring. £1bn for Crossrail and a pollution tax. I see that as him trying to win over big business by making the little people pay more.
    I don't favour any party in our broken system so don't vote. Though I did put my name on the electoral roll this year because I think I will have to be on it for my helicopter money.

    The answer?...gaming it...I walked up to a group of `locusts` hassling Mr Yellow Sticker Man with a few reduced items in the top of my basket and  said " I can't believe how much they reduced that steak by, the packaging must cost more than that...must be because they have so much of it!" ...suddenly they swarmed off and Mr YSM said "We've not reduced any meat yet?!", "no" I said, " but you will be before they return won't you?!"...we both laughed and I went home with some reductions :-)

    You just know when Primark say they're starting to struggle we're flipping close to the big one!

    Well done, it's nice to hear that.
    What with DB's 3,500 S&P and truecontrarian closing all his shorts, there just hasn't been enough near term doom and gloom for my tastes.

    From my experience of living in Edinburgh and seeing these new self-contained bedsit-style buildings being thrown up, a lot of the residents here are the sons and daughters of the nouveau-rich from China, India etc. When China et al crash, these sorts of accommodation providers will be screwed.

    I'm convinced it's run by the same guys as RT, trying to take the Western World down. But some articles are good, have to check the source.

    its had its moments, for example it managed to predicted all 200 of the recent 3 recessions correctly. Has a habit of saying shit like 'gold soars in after market' 'stocks dump in pre market' etc etc and when you go check its usually feck all, just a bit of volatility.
    a broken clock is correct twice a day.

    Like saying a clinically obese person has kept pace with the food they were eating.

    That’s how they ended up with combustible cladding on Grenfell.. it was something like 25k more for the fire retardant cladding. Some bean counter could see acost saving.. 
    short term gains are the reason for impending economic collapse.. 
    like buy to leach that rapes the tenant until they retire and all end up on benefits with £1000 a week nursing home costs and not a pot to piss in,  bankrupting the country.. 
    Privatising all our services to greedy parasites makes our economy unsustainable..

    Vodafone closed above its 100 DMA today, and crossed on the weekly MACD. Looks like it's bottoming, glad I held and added, locking in that juicy dividend!

    I think a lot of manufacturing will return from China. Whos gonna pay £14 for a model railway wagon from China when you can buy a better quality one from Wales for £9. (silly example but you get my point).

    Thing is, the economy is going to roll over anyway in 2019 (housing already is), so it's all about creating stimulus room with rates now, and little to do with the mainstream narrative.

    Inoperational Bumblebee got a reaction from JackieO in I have a cat on my boobs   
    Cats are weird. Ours was a stray (not feral) and you can tell in her behaviour that she's grateful to have somewhere to live, even after 9 years of being found. Most docile, affectionate and tolerant cat I've ever met.

    Inoperational Bumblebee reacted to Agent ZigZag in Credit deflation and the reflation cycle to come.   
    Last few weeks have been brutal against my isa and sipp. As I am not a trader but rather a yield seeking long term investor it shows the importance of regular and evenly spread out share purchases.

    Indeed.
    IMO the main problem with the guy's presentation was that it seems to assume that he's the clever one amongst a sea of mug punters, whereas in reality all the mug punters combined make up only a tiny %age of trades, with most being made by professionals.  I'd also suggest that a decent %age of the mug punters are using TA, and the pros take advantage of this, either by front-running trades (because they're faster) or just manipulating the market to take out stop-losses etc (because they really know the order book).  I find the potential for the  simple TA beating the pros being hard to swallow.
