    Best UK City to live

    I'm no expert in sociology, but I imagine that the weather is partly the reason Glasgow is so good for culture, shopping, eating out, music etc. An hour from Loch Lomond and 2 hours on a plane when you need ⛅.

    Glasgow. Better than Edinburgh in every way. Less Islamists than England.

    Scots, EEers, muzzers, blacks.

    but, but...don't all the academics keep going on about the Glasgow model for solving London's problems? I see Baroness Doreen had something to say, anyone got any numbers of black vs white murdered?

    Settled Status

    Good old SNP has been quite vocal that we shouldn't be charging all these EU Doctors and Engineers £65 to stay here, meanwhile bumping up taxes for everyone who dares to earn more than £27k. wankers

    I Chose the Wrong Profession?

    The Judge won't budge. He obviously means something to a lot of people - www.judgejulesarchive.co.uk/archives/board/index.php?/forum/8-judge-jules-audio/ . I only recently found that site and as an ex raver totally love it.

    Anyone go to the gym?

    Spin room when it's empty, turn all the lights off, headphones on with a late 90s Essential Mix. Aim for 20 miles in an hour. Works for me.

    Stevenage, the new slums

    isn't this thread a little bit snowflakey for Dosbodders? Stevenage is a slum and gender shaming is political correctness gone made, fair play to him for saying it. He's still a knob though

    This is true. Wee Asif at our school was pretty cool and always had the best computer games. Apart from his house smelling funny I never thought of him as different. Now I only have two rules for my daughter's 1. Don't be a goth 2. Stay away from Muslims

    Read my lips - more new taxes

    Try living in Scotland. Chances are that following our budget in a few days we'll be paying higher rate tax starting £10k below those in England. Wankers.

    Assumed abnormalities

    I've got a dyslexic daughter and it's certainly made me think back to those that I considered thickos at primary school. I can do pretty much any times table up to 4 figures, so I find it weird that some people can't do the 8 or 9 lol Also spelling, I just don't get how some people can't do it

    Tax

    Having an argument with someone at work about paying tax and trying to get him to understand that someone paying £1000 in Income tax and NIbyt taking out £5000 in benefits isn't actually contributing to society. Are there any figures available on the number of people that are actually net positive taxpayers?

    Ways to earn extra money

    If you read the online poker forums you'll find that the guys who make a living out if it usually measure expected earnings in big blinds per hour - BB/HR. Usually a rate of 4-5bb/hr is good. I believe those that make a living will multi table anhwyere between 4 and 8 tables. Playing a single table and making 5bb/hr would require you to be playing £1/£2 NL to make £10hr. Normally that means sitting down with £200 and having a bankroll of at least £4k. Have a look at twoplustwo forums before you decide you want to earn money playing poker.

    Ways to earn extra money

    I dabble with online poker and live poker, for enjoyment mostly and mostly tournaments. Cask poker online is very, very hard these days. I wouldn't even consider trying to make a regular income from it, far too many people who seemingly have nothing better to do than play thousands of hands a day to grind out a hundred dollars. Live poker on the other hand, well Sat Night I sat down with £150 and walked away with £2148 after 5 hrs, plus you get a laugh. what sort of income you looking for?

    Cold Winter?

    Generally the models only look 9 days ahead - http://old.wetterzentrale.de/topkarten/fsavneur.html. Obviously the further out you go the less accurate it gets. The model discussion thread focuses on that. High pressure equals settled weather, low pressure the opposite. Click on the 500hpa bodendruck panel tab. The stratosphere temperature watch thread is looking for signs further up in the atmosphere, this tends to give an indication of medium to long term expectations. Last year they fairly accurately predicted the beast from the east weeks in advance due to a slow down and eventual reversal in the high level polar winds, allowing cold air to sink out of the arctic.
