  1. Give me the phased plasma rifle in the 40-watt range. there's a storm coming.....
  2. Once again, had me in stitches! http://www.thedailymash.co.uk/news/busines...of-20080408856/
  3. You and me both. I was at the "where's the bullets where's the gun?" stage before we got as far dodgy dosiers, dead weapons specialists, and the last 5 years of foreign policy. And I voted for them in '97. You're all keeping me sane (ish), you know that...
  4. If a property like that is potentially going to go for anything even close to that amount in Nottingham, it's over. I think all of us who said this sort of property would become social housing were right. The crap new build flats that are all over Nottingham (and are not exactly full to the brim with tennants) are going to be changing hands at circa <20k a pop, if anyone other than local authorities would consider buying them - which is highly unlikely. **Edit** Yes, I know it's Radford but property in the Meadows and Clifton has been over 100k k for some time now, so Radford must have be
  5. Nah, just ZaNuLabour I discovered this site some time ago, and the comments & analysis (by and large) had me convinced of where we were heading a long time ago. Been out earlier, just about to watch it, but don't expect anything other than complete stupidity. From Wikipedia (the pertinent bit) Sheeple is a term of disparagement, a portmanteau created by combining the words "sheep" and "people"; a reference to herd mentality. The implication of sheeple is that as a collective, people believe whatever they are told, especially if told so by authority figures, without processing it to be
  6. If you want to get your credit report for free, and cut Experian out all together, I recomend these guys; https://www.garlik.com/
  7. Hi everyone Not posted in ages, but have been lurking Saw this today on a university campus in the East Midlands, just had to post it here. "There are more rooms available than students to fill them" Whooda thunk it?
  8. Spot on! I'd post loads of guffaws Bart if it wasn't so terryfying.... How did we get to this?
  9. Precisely Mark. There are an awful lot of people out there who don't seem to be able to grasp this fact. Of course, it couldn't possibly happen in this day and age......
  10. No. You can get it done for free without paying a penny to Experian. http://www.garlik.com
  11. I'm firmly in the camp that understands that the rules were invented for the fools to obey and the wise to interpret. I'd really like to find a way of articulating what Gordon can do with his rules, but I don't think I could do it using Visio. There are a lot of us out here who aren't going to do what we are told, and the time for these mendacious sh*ts to discover this is fast approaching. God how I loath these people.
  12. I remember this from last time. Ferrari Daytonas and Dinos going for over 200k - it was utter madness. Happened very quickly too.
  13. A young woman I have known for years bought a semi last month for 170k. She was under pressure from her partner, both sets of parents and colleagues and friends. The thing is, neither of them have particularly brilliant incomes, and are stretched to the max. She confessed to me that she didn't think they had done the right thing (I had no idea of their plans until after they had bought), and to be honest I didn't know what to say to her. This is my biggest worry. Plus there is only so much you can do to protect yourself. Any impending downturn is going to be a lot more than just house price
  14. As a smoker myself, I have to say I agree something needed to be done to improve the social environement of non-smokers. The trouble is, they have gone too far with this draconian all out ban. There should have been an element of choice involved, and everyone could have been kept happy. Talk about the health of non-smokers and bar staff etc is nonsense. This isn't being done for anyones health benefit. ASH, the anti-smoking lobbyists, are in turm funded by big pharma. What do you think happens to sales of nicotine patches in countries that introduce bans? I've heard sales figures increasing b
  15. A light just went on. The only people who probably still support NuLabour are recepients of tax credits, and this probably includes your neighbour. I wouldn't feel guilty if I were you.
  16. I think this is true, all the parties are hovering over the middle ground and are pretty much useless. As a friend of mine put it "who do you vote for?". Politicians have historically and in the main been a bunch of thieving mendacious bast*rds, it's just that the current shower have taken these qualities to a whole new different level. The general standards in politics as a result of this these days are just so low and and the people so non-descript as to be quite plainly not up to the task in hand. This definitely includes "call me Dave", who isn't going to be capable of fixing anything ev
  17. Oh. My. God. http://www.theapplebuilding.com Give it a few years of wear and tear, wait for ash to become unfashionable and it really will look and feel like something imported from the USSR, especially in that area. Although I suppose I should expect nothing less from ZaNuLabour marxists. If this is what Blairs vision of a 21st century Britain is, after reading the thread about leaving the UK I think I may head off to foreign shores myself.
  18. FP - with all the bullish VI spin we have to put up with it is incredibly refreshing to see a different viewpoint in the MSM delivered by someone who has all the facts to hand and came across as very credible and reasonable. Well done that man!
  19. Could afford it easily. Never going to happen though, just wishful thinking. The Midlands for example is flooded with rental properties, in particular new build flats. Anecdotally, rents are down from what they were a year ago. For example, that "stylish city living designer appartment" @ £600/month this time last year is now £450. My landlord has had the property for over 20 years, so isn't a newbie. If he did suggest such a hike, I would just laugh and look elseware. It's a renters market. It's when these idiots remortgage and realise they don't set rental costs, the market does, that the
