  1. Does anywhere track UK mortgage multiples? I have a feeling that borrowers who would have taken a comfortable 3.5x 2 years ago are desperately taking 5x or more these days in order to secure a property. It would explain the rising prices somewhat.
  2. Haven’t read any Jensen before but saw a video of him continuing to talk while being screeched at and heckled by no-platforming university students, and admired his restraint. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/194862639X/ref=dbs_a_w_dp_194862639x "Bright Green Lies exposes the hypocrisy and bankruptcy of leading environmental groups and their most prominent cheerleaders. The best-known environmentalists are not in the business of speaking truth, or even holding up rational solutions to blunt the impending ecocide, but instead indulge in a mendacious and self-serving delusion that provides comfort at the expense of reality. They fail to state the obvious: We cannot continue to wallow in hedonistic consumption and industrial expansion and survive as a species.
  3. At least 250 convicted of child sexual abuse in UK and Ireland while in Scout movement https://www.theguardian.com/society/2021/jul/25/uk-ireland-child-sexual-abuse-scout-movement
  4. Oh I'm not worried, I just like to have a record somewhere noting my thoughts that it is under researched and pervasive, even in cultures without endemic diet/smoking/alcohol issues. Ta, the comments are a bit Steve Jobs wacky and we all know how that ended...
  5. No I mean when I search Last 14 Days + under offer. They're gone.
  6. In my area any sub 2mil houses with gardens are selling within a week. Yard instead of garden takes longer. Flats take longer still + reductions. On bright side I did see a 200k reduction from 2.5 on a semi-d.
  7. I imagine the business makes money by selling the registered customers’ data, rather than from the booking fee. I’d it doesn’t flop immediately I could see a buyout by rightmove or moneysupermarket once they’ve built up a database.

  9. Managed to talk my way into a house for sale near me today (was passing by and door open). Agent was just closing up. On for 1.5, 2 offers over asking already. Place needs full refurb. Market here is as insane as ever and I wouldn’t be surprised to see 1.7 on land reg in a few months.
  10. The most extraordinary of the recent heatwaves occurred in the Pacific northwest in June where the normally mild region was bathed in heat that broke temperature records by more than 10F (5.5C). The heat, which caused hundreds of people to die in cities including Seattle and Portland, where it reached 116F (46C), has caused several scientists to question their previous estimates of how the climate crisis will reshape heatwave severity. “You expect hotter heatwaves with climate change but the estimates may have been overly conservative,” Wehner said. “With the Pacific northwest heatwave you’d conclude the event would be almost impossible without climate change but in a straightforward statistical analysis from before this summer you’d also include it would be impossible with climate change, too. That is problematic, because the event happened.” https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/jul/24/america-heatwave-climate-crisis-heat-dome
  11. Who was the doctor? (Edit to add that I found The Emperor of All Maladies fascinating and have Mukherjee's next book lined up). Microplastics have only been in the news recently, same with PFAs, BPA and so forth. There's been relatively little research done on their impact, so naturally those causes that have decades of proof should be prioritised. I maintain that as evidence slowly accumulates it will become impossible to ignore that these polluters of our air, food, water and bodies are having negative medical impacts that go beyond even cancer. And when it comes to our children, should we really be so blasé about the possibilities? Plastic baby bottles shed millions of microplastics when shaken Read more: https://www.newscientist.com/article/2257599-plastic-baby-bottles-shed-millions-of-microplastics-when-shaken/#ixzz71XOplTXi
  12. Never serious? That's a big statement. What are you going to do, wire their jaws shut? If there wasn't a huge amount of profit in making people fat (selling them the food, selling them the diets, selling them the gym subs and the workout gear and the feelings of inadequacy), then the environment would be quite different. Your issue should be with the mechanisms by which capitalism (ie endless consumption, endless growth) traps us, not the saps who are trapped.
  13. When I imagine a £1,075,000 house, this ain’t it: https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/110033024
  14. Whoops. I don't use chemical sunscreen unless I have to - stick to mineral ones. better for sealife as well.
  15. Electric planes will replace avgas. It’ll be quite weird I imagine, much quieter?
  16. I mean, yeah, that was common knowledge. https://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2017/10/blind-items-revealed-4_17.html
  17. Or just helping them educate women and girls. https://www.unicef.org/education/girls-education
