  1. Oh dear comrades. Putin approves a complete shutdown of Russia in November to combat the alarming rise in cases. You reap what you sow.
  2. Some said this would never happen again this cycle. Congratulations to all the believers. The starting pistol has been fired for this cycles bull run. LFG!!!!
  3. But for sales to take advantage of the cut I’m sure that said sales will have to have been well advanced well before 30th September. I fully understand your frustration though. I get it. What has happened to housing in the western countries is criminal. But you cannot let your frustrations cloud your judgement on reality.
  4. I thought we were assured from some on here that as soon as the stamp duty holiday ended all this nonsense would be over. Little coming to market in our village and even the dross is selling, albeit a week or so later.
  5. Asking prices for UK homes rise in unison for 1st time in 14 years LONDON (Reuters) - Asking prices across all regions and segments of Britain’s housing market rose in unison for the first time since 2007 as buyer demand once again outstripped homes coming onto the market, a survey showed on Monday. Real estate website Rightmove reported price rises for homes typically sought by first- and second-time buyers and for bigger properties with five bedrooms or more in all regions in its survey which covered the period between Sept. 12 and Oct. 9. Average asking prices rose by 1.8% from a month earlier, the biggest jump at this time of year since 2015, to reach a record high of 344,445 pounds ($473,922). The number of prospective buyers per property more than doubled compared with pre-pandemic levels. “The stock shortages started after the first lockdown and they look set to continue with the underlying housing market fundamentals remaining strong, and an additional incentive to buy and fix your mortgage interest rate before a widely expected rate rise,” Tim Bannister, Rightmove’s director of property data, said. The Bank of England is expected to raise interest rates for the first time since the start of the pandemic either later this year or early in 2022. The survey chimed with other signs that the housing market has remained strong despite the gradual withdrawal of a temporary tax break on property purchases. Finance minister Rishi Sunak cut stamp duty, a tax on house purchases, in July 2020 as part of his emergency measures to help the economy withstand the pandemic. In July it started to return to its normal level and the tax break fully expired last month. Another driver of the housing market has been demand for more space for increased working from home, a factor which has led to big price rises in other countries too. Asking prices rose in monthly terms by the most in Wales and the north west of England, up by 2.3%, and by the least in the east of England, rising by 0.1%.
  6. It proves if your motherland sows the seeds of doubt amongst other countries then don’t expect your comrades to bother getting vaccinated either. 32% population vaccinated despite Sputnik being on of the first vaccines available is shockingly poor. Now Putins fighting the perfect storm of the highest ever infections and deaths on the backdrop of self-sowed anti-vax propaganda. As I said, you reap what you sow.
  7. 32% vaccinated and now highest daily deaths since the pandemic began. That needed explained?
  8. Well played @markyh It sounds to me like you’ve made the right call. Your personal moon, mortgage free, new wheels, with still a healthy crypto stack. What’s not to like. 👌
  9. Oh dear it does not look like the Sputnik vaccine take up is going very well in our comrades motherlands. Still I guess you reap what you sow. 🤷
  10. Apologies for my confusion, I was specifically talking about countries with large hashing banning Bitcoin. As banning is cited on here by others, hence the oft parodied ‘they won’t let it happen’. Of course I realise that Bitcoin has flaws and limitations, all software does. Thus the continual development and BIP’s. However I believe that a state level attack on the protocol through multiple mining pools is almost negligible due to the required costs and combined actions required. (I actually read a good article on this some time back and will try to dig it out for you.) And despite being highly active on bitcoin talk in 2013 I don’t remember reading nor responding to the thread you linked. As for bullishness, yes I did forget your prediction (I forget everyone’s unless they are persistently vocal about it) but clearly I hope you’re proven correct and myself wrong. Either way I’m more than happy already.
  11. Yes it matters because after selling 100% of his bags and lying about his reasons for selling he went full on attack dog mode calling others stupid idiots for continuing to buy and hodl. Yet now here he is buying back at higher values what he lost. That is why the ‘JJ sellout line’ is so important.
  12. Congratulations to all the believers. The hodlers and BTFDers. We are now well above the JJ line.
