Awesome, even the Germans show efficiency in the layout of the food!

Indeed... in order of importance, starting in the bottom left hand corner by the look of it.

i went to a whole foods in NYC when i was there , those places are amazing

The one on Kensington High Street is a great place but the prices are incredible. I used to spend a lot there when I was using my expense account although you could easily spend 20 on a lunch of Sushi and Organic juice.

2016 Predictions


1. Nominal UK house prices -2% in London, +3% outside London.


2. Peak pessimism occurs in spring 2016, after that Oil, Commodities, and FTSE 100 stage small recovery ending year slightly higher than they began.


3. The US has a particularly bad tempered Hilary vs Donald election, Hilary wins (but failing health means she doesn't make a second term).


4. If there's no UK interest rate rise soon then it'll be too late to have one before the European vote in the second half of 2016. If we vote to leave then there won't be an interest rate rise at all in 2016. More likely we'll vote to stay in and there will be a single, quarter point increase in the autumn. The most obvious black swan that could overturn all this and see interest rates move up sharply is a balance of payments crisis, but on balance I don't think that will happen, at least not in 2016.


5. The tide really turns against small BTL landlords, and BTL moves towards being a big player enterprise with pension funds and big builders taking a stake.


6. China doesn't collapse, but makes progress on rebalancing and new, more modest growth rates appear secure. India becomes the new China. Russian-Western relationships slowly thaw. Brazil becomes a basket case and the IMF are forced to intervene.


7. A frontline country, maybe Mexico, maybe Columbia, throws in the towel on fighting the war against drugs for the benefit of the US and legalises all drugs.


8. UK RPI finishes 2016 at about 1%.

The only westerners not eating pizza...... the italians.

You'll find that they're the only westerners not eating pre-made packaged crap pizza. The Italians actually make it fresh themselves.

The Italians actually make it fresh themselves.

Pizzas are similar to pancakes, burgers, meatballs, pies, and pasties - a mishmash of leftover food from the depleted pantry.

And while the Italian family seemed to overall eat healthier than the UK, US, and German families, to counter the borderline tinfoil hatted comments about unhealthy foods coming in boxes, look at somebody from a present day society that mainly bypassed eating Western food grown since the 1970s:

Sure, look at the enormous whale women that block the view at your local Asda, but they're largely the result of a rather sedentary lifestyle and unbalanced diet (the UK family didn't have as much fruit and vegetables as the Italian family, but still had more fruit and veg than the US family).

The Italian family doesn't know how to live. Where's their chocolate? Who could live in Italy without having gianduiotti chocolates on the menu? Or in Germany without having hot chocolate, black forest gateau and chocolate on the menu? At least the Brits are honest and have their chocolate placed pride of place on the table. No wonder both the Germans and Italians look so dour.
