Big stupid thread

Recommended Posts

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7242447/Anthea-Turners-sister-tells-husband-went-TVs-golden-couple-living-car.html

I always wonder what sort of idiot falls for Nigerian scams.

While there were many debts that took their toll, perhaps the worst is the sizeable £150,000 they borrowed from loved ones — among them Anthea — on the strength of £1.4 million they were expecting from that West African business deal. It led to an estrangement from Anthea and other relatives two years ago.

...

Undeterred, in 2013, Gary found himself involved in another 'deal'. This time, surprising though it may sound given that nothing in his resume to date appeared to qualify him for this role, he was to act as a consultant in negotiations between a global aviation company and a West African government.

To fulfil a United Nations mandate, the country was obliged to purchase a 'medevac aircraft', to be used to evacuate the sick and wounded and deliver emergency supplies, in the event of a war.

Have they never considered the option of work?  You know, like most people do to get by. 

No.

Although did waver, getting herself ready to earn 80k/y as that daft Browning make-work energy consultant for houses.

A lot of questions with this one and I don't think their intentions are honest. Why's it the leading DM story? Never heard of either of them. 

They were both famous in the late eighties / early nineties. Bit before your time.

Even if the Travel lodge was £50 a night, that's just over £1500 a month on average....

GET A CHEAP FLAT until you are sorted again. 

 

Surely....

By the time you have added council tax and utilities, you are up at £2k.

From the story it sounds like they wouldn't pass the rental credit checks anyway. Even more so now it is public knowledge.

Move somewhere cheaper, pay £800 for a flat, £150 council tax, £150 utilities, so £1100 total. That's over ten grand a year in savings from their £2k a month London rent alone. 

Retards.

Yes yes, I get that they're stupid, but let's just remind ourselves which of the Turner sisters married Grant Bovey, shall we?

Their classy wedding picture still cracks me up 😀😀😀

Reading the article is clear that, like many 'creative' people, they're simply dim and therefore can't handle money. How can you have a £100k tax bill and not have the money to pay it? To have a £100k tax bill she must have earned £300k and frittered it all away.

Interesting though to see that it was rent that killed them. They were paying more on rent for a 3 bed house than to send their 2 children to an expensive private school. That's also been my experience around London - if you have to pay rent, you don't really stand much chance of creating any form of long term life.

That makes more sense. They clearly worshiped money and the trappings of "fame" and didn't have a plan B. I feel sorry for their kids, although they are not far off adulthood anyway so time to make their own way shortly.

This naivety must run in her family because Anthea Turner, despite marrying a very wealthy (con)man, is living in a bedsit too now apparently, and she isn't even talking to the sister, because of money. So what to surmise? That having money can be extremely destructive if you constantly waste it, chase it or cannot see yourselves without it.

Yes, if there is a God, you'd think He'd have taken the trouble to warn us about something as important as that.

Quote

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. 1 Timothy 6:10

Peer pressure to spend the same as those around you as well who are most likely to be on the same sort of sums is very high, you'll get dragged into the spending habits and interests of friends / peers / co-workers, even expectations of employers. All well and good whilst the good times roll but a hell of come down if things go awry.

You could end up as the CPU for some hybrid organic technological toaster.

Have you by any chance read Bobiverse?.
