  1. Braindead segment about the budget on ITV news earlier, footage of potential FTB peering in estate agent's window being interviewed, saying it's good because he doesn't want to pay someone else's mortgage. Cut to media bint next to luxury flat development saying this is good for house building and therefore good for electricians, plasterers, home furnishings and removal companies.
  2. Out of interest, how are people tracking flows out of exchanges into cold storage - do exchanges advertise their wallet addresses?
  3. Your average schoolteacher under the age of 35 probably doesn't even know what the word pedagogy means. A hundred years ago they might have been intellectually curious, with a rich knowledge and understanding of classical references, biblical sayings and Shakespearean figures of speech. We don't produce those kinds of people so much any more.
  4. Convert the bed and bath section, don't even need to do any building - punters can pick a mattress of their choice to sleep on.
  5. There will always be people with the appetite for risk, playing hardball, cutting deals, and for taking on that risk there has to be a commensurate reward. So markyh can die a Bitcoin millionaire, fair play, nothing necessarily to resent. And there will always be that element of luck and good timing in all human affairs, that may sometimes be divorced from skill and desert. What does create a situation of despair is the increasing financialisation of everybody's lives, to the degree that if you aren't spending hours upon hours researching funds, pursuing crypto strategies, trading gold
  6. Two mortgage free properties at the age of 35? Surely you don't get that from extreme couponing alone. Husband's a (now redundant) sports massage therapist, can't have been raking it in - guessing there is some chunky family inheritance behind the story.
  7. The independent 2-screen cinema down the road from me is still closed, no idea who owns it and their financial position. Can't see them holding out too long, nor can I see Bond saving the entire industry. Need to get the punters in for two or so films a week with some concession spend.

  9. Are self-driving cars really going to navigate a roadworks for a gas main upgrade where there are cones on the side you would normally drive on and a guy flipping a Stop/Go sign (or flaky temporary lights) to control traffic, and a bus that's hanging over the adjacent joining road that you have to bend round, avoiding the sandbags that fell off the "Roadworks for the next ten weeks" metal sign? The minute you need to take over, even for twenty metres, you need to both be sober and have a driving licence.
  10. Wasn't there a big Vitamin D thread from a few years back with TMT and others talking about various brands of softgels, different doses, hyperdosing etc.? Can't seem to find it. Given you can get a year's supply for around a tenner it isn't exactly a rip-off like some of the remedies you'll pay for in Holland & Barrett. I was thinking to myself during lockdown that a likely effective thing the government could do would be to send supplements to every adult in the country.
  11. Massive inconvenience...my local chippy had to wrap up my haddock and chips in plastic instead
