  1. People who like a drink. People who like to read or work on their journeys. Mass transit exists for everyone. Cars exist for car drivers. It's the difference between collectivism and individualism.
  2. Blaming inflation: ‘People are ripping up contracts’: price of rice boils over into new territory in UK https://www.theguardian.com/food/2022/jun/22/rice-price-yorkshire-importer-costs But hidden in the article, the reasons: Eurostar Commodities usually buys short-grain rice, used to make the sushi sold in supermarkets, from Italy, Europe’s largest producer. However the price per tonne is now “crazy”, Bull says, due to the hit to harvests caused by severe drought. Long-grain rice is also a problem . The company usually sources from Spain but farmers there have also been hit by drought and extreme temperatures. Come autumn he predicts it will have no rice for export, a view that explains the huge white sacks emblazoned with stars and stripes piled on the warehouse floor. Even though it has come all the way from the US it still works out cheaper, Bull says. Silver lining: Global rice production is bountiful, with a record harvest of 514.6m tonnes predicted, but the high cost of wheat and maize means it is in demand as a substitute for animal feed, says Zanna Aleksahhina, a market analyst at data firm Mintec.
  3. Something different from the wall of inflation and bad politics.
  4. UK inflation rises to 9.1%, its highest rate in 40 years 9.1% in headline CPI rate will add to cost of living crisis https://www.theguardian.com/business/2022/jun/22/uk-inflation-rises-to-91-its-highest-rate-in-40-years

  6. I don’t pay attention to the green party as they’re riddled with pedos and extreme wokeism. I think we’ll get electric planes. https://www.afar.com/magazine/electric-planes-are-coming-sooner-than-you-think/amp Planting trees is a good idea.
  7. What fuel types? Everything I’ve read has indicted that cruise ships are extremely polluting, both of air and water.
  8. I’ve long argued that tenants should know the overall financial rating of their landlords. If you’re looking at two identical properties and one is a highly leveraged and/or foreign landlord vs a tax paying landlord who owns outright, shouldn’t some transparency come into play here, for fairness sake?
  9. Guess it’ll just leave landlords with no mortgage then. Sounds fine.
  10. +1 The vast majority of flights are taken by frequent fliers, business fliers. If they have to pay more now it’ll just be the same as in the 80s when flying was a luxury. We might get electric planes faster now too.
  11. Time for a HPC youtube channel, and a HPC podcast. I do not volunteer
  12. I'm sure this will have absolutely no impact on food prices and inflation at all.
  13. My parents did that once and the other kids who came to stay in our house stole my calculator watch, so no thanks.
  14. All these tech companies that act as middlemen are tax dodgers that deserve to crash. Uber, Airbnb, Etsy - the list goes on. Etsy paid just £128,000 in corporation tax in 2020 in the UK despite £160m in sales
  15. Airbnb: Charges £68 cleaning fee Airbnb host: Hi! Welcome! Please ensure everything is as you found it, all the bins are taken out, the fridge is clean, and the beds are stripped before you leave. And leave us 5 star feedback, thanks!
  16. Don’t trust them: China's bank run victims planned to protest. Then their Covid health codes turned red https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2022/06/15/china/china-zhengzhou-bank-fraud-health-code-protest-intl-hnk/index.html He had put his life savings -- totaling about 6 million yuan ($890,000) -- into a rural bank in Henan, and since April hasn't been able to withdraw a penny. Over the past two months, thousands of depositors like Liu have been fighting to recover their savings from at least four rural banks in Henan -- in a case that involves billions of dollars. In late May, hundreds of them traveled to Zhengzhou from across China and staged a protest outside the office of the Henan banking regulator to demand their money back -- to no avail.
