  1. Never understood this... I've got two kids (12 and 13) and they've grown up in rented houses. I never realised that this was against biology.
  2. Has anyone estimated this? Is there a way to track the numbers of probate sales? Seems to me that we'll have a spike in the number of empty homes coming onto the market in the next year.
  3. Yeah, you're right. England and Wales is closer to 500K, UK is around 600K.
  4. My wife is a mental health nurse (working with suspected covid patients on mental health wards at the moment). Jokes that this will keep her in business for years.
  5. More like half a mill: https://zwischenzugs.com/2019/08/15/how-long-will-it-take-for-the-leavers-to-leave/
  6. It's also worse if your lungs are being pushed, as you're puffing more germs out further than normal. People on bikes and joggers should keep even further away.
  7. It's complicated, I guess. Fewer people are dying in road accidents, I imagine. But then, more people might be committing suicide. Or maybe fewer? It will take a while to figure it all out.
  8. I also noticed she couldn't say 'ing', preferring 'in'. As in: 'includin', like a cockney without the dropped aitches. Not sure what that's about.
  9. A friend who is an A&E consultant tells us that it's never been quieter for him, because "all the time-wasters aren't turning up anymore". Also, the number of covid patients is way less than they feared, so they're shipping those they do have to London. I'm curious to see how the government relaxes the lockdown first. Schools back? More people allowed back to work?
  10. My wife is a nurse working with covid patients and she says staff are nicking and wasting PPE. But of course all NHS staff are amazing, doing amazing work, utterly selfless, and can never possibly do anything wrong because they are beams of light emanating from their uniforms.
  11. Huge taxes on internet businesses. Amazon, FB and Google will have to pay shovel-loads of cash. Like post-war, socialism will return.
  12. It says in the article that he has the capital to pay it off. He's just chosen not to yet, or it makes more sense for him to pay off when needed due to repayment penalties. So he has effectively paid it off already.
  13. So much to unpick here. Cookies can't be seen if the request is encrypted. RE: Elastic Search, that's not 'your' software, that's 'open source' software given away and legally monetised as a service by AWS. Just like Apache was, and countless other software products. If you don't like their service, then pay someone else or implement it yourself. Amazon is a cult and I don't trust them as far as I can throw them, but why they're less trustworthy than Microsoft I've no idea... Also, you seem to be confusing AWS with Amazon.com.
  14. In real terms, where are prices back to in London? I make it about beginning of 2015 levels, where the figure was around 400 compared to today's 460.
  15. Picked at random: https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-64869471.html Nice looking - 4 bed house for under 3.7m Must be a hell of a flat to go for 5m.
  16. Don't think so, we brought tubs of home made popcorn there recently, they didn't turn a hair.
