  1. Bitcoin. Going so crazy at the moment that even people that have invested in it have FOMO.
  2. The figures in the original graph were for hospital admissions, not positive tests. If anything you'd hope more widespread testing plus lockdown measures would suppress numbers but they look pretty bad. And can't see how it's possible to compare Covid19 figures to previous flu seasons. The flu doesn't typically come with the benefit of any lockdown.
  3. Not sure when exactly she bought, but must have been pretty close! I'm just a tiny bit annoyed she didn't ask me first before taking the plunge, as I would have her, but in fairness at that time I probably would have said 'no'
  4. So towards the end of November I started thinking about getting into bitcoin. Talked to the wife about it and she said 'I've got a surprise for you'. She'd bought a few k worth in March... Not the worst financial decision she's ever made (fingers crossed)
  5. I know it's impossible to predict the future, but looking at the chart below it's difficult to imagine an imminent collapse. Things do seem to move quickly in this world however...! The search terms were chosen to represent the interest of people new to the game or thinking about diving in.
  6. Are you familiar with the cartoon series 'Monkey Dust'? Sums this up pretty well (and a lot of other modern purgatory, even though it came out ages ago) Highly recommend a search on YouTube.. eg. monkey dust dinner party <I did post a video link but removed it as I forgot that the ending is a bit grim. >
  7. It amazes me that the purchase of a quarter of a million pound asset could be hampered for the sake of a couple of grand. If you don't have that sort of money available, should you really be doing this in the first place?
  8. Might not be if we get this speculated influx of hongkongers
  9. There's still plenty of time. There seems to be a worrying uptick in cases/hospitalisations/deaths since the end of the full lockdown. The tier system may not be working (what a surprise)
  10. Is it a future we should wish for, though? My local area in Staffordshire is disappearing under wave after wave of huge housing developments (the like of which didn't seem to happen to such an extent when I lived in the SE, maybe its different recently). We need to keep the population down and protect what countryside we have left. I'm not anti-immgration, but I am very much against massive net immigration.
