  1. It’s crop tops aplenty round here. Not always accompanied by washboard stomachs but I’m not allowed to be fattist or I’ll get cancelled :D

    Without a lie I saw a group of yoofs walking towards me a few months ago and it was like an extras scene from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. 

    Get ebaying that 90s vintage gear - it’ll be 2000s fashion before we know it.

    In my opinion, women slut shame promiscuous women because they deem them to be lowering women's value.

    Could be. Could also be that men don't value sluts and women copy them. It's a handy get out clause, to say, 'She's not like me, I'm much better than her. Treat me well.' You can see this bearing out in the male violence against prostitutes stats. It's far higher than among the general population, because they're seen as worthless. You can do want you want, and some men do want to hurt women. 

    These men, for instance. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/sep/01/texas-abortion-law-supreme-court

    We've now been renting for 10 years, we rented initially as I had decided to build a new business with some colleagues and my income for the first 5 or 6 years was not regular and I had to dip into savings every now and then to keep things on the straight and narrow. Gradually the business became more and more successful and my wages rose accordingly, but never quite enough to get that mortgage big enough for the nice 3/4 bed family home.

    Fast forward a few more years and I'm now top 5% earner in the UK, have a six figure deposit saved, yet those same family homes are tantalisingly out of reach. I'm 48 and every month that passes is a month less on the mortgage term we can get.

    I'm not after sympathy, but we're coming to the point where we're going to have to make a decision to either move to a cheaper area and all the upheaval that will mean for the kids, taking them out of the schools and friendship groups they've made etc. There are other reasons we need to stay where we are as in-laws now need round the clock help after mother-in-law being diagnosed with dementia, and we're the only ones close enough to help, so a massive impact on them if we had to up sticks and move 50 miles.

    Or...rent for the rest of our lives, unless I've missed another option. I'm open to ideas (and not fecking Bitcoin BTW)

    Can you squeeze into buying a smaller place and then extend?

    Doomed? Nope. Not much risk of that (unless we decide to go for all-out nuclear war). The potential for very serious consequences is non-zero but the potential for enough to wipe humanity out entirely is pretty much non-existent, at least on any sort of timescale that's meaningful to us.

    It doesn't have to be all of humanity wiped out for it to SUCK HARD though. Call me crazy but I don't actually want future generations to grow up in turmoil, water wars, mass starvation and migration, animals being wiped out (all this is already happening but will ramp up). 

    Degrowth, we just need degrowth.

    Ironically, the planet is cooling down was bound to happen after a few billion years.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth's_inner_core

     

    The Earth's inner core is thought to be slowly growing as the liquid outer core at the boundary with the inner core cools and solidifies due to the gradual cooling of the Earth's interior (about 100 degrees Celsius per billion years).[45]

    WOW watch the real estate values of inner core property SOAR!

  6. I am about to lose my home and don’t know where to turn. My partner and I took out a second £40,000 mortgage through Nationwide last year. It was to be paid into my partner’s account, but it didn’t arrive. I made several calls to Nationwide, which stated that the money had been paid, but refused to confirm the recipient’s details, citing data protection.

    It's probably the fact that smooth talking politicians like this chap are paid to be the acceptable front to a fraudulent system, 'it's for your own good I'm a technocrat'. 'Technocrats will not take instruction from politicians'. Right.

    I don't recall Merv being any better. 

  8. Listen guys farts are totally normal and have always happened. 

    Someone made an absolutely massive fart in 1974 so any records of farts happening now don't matter. The frequency of farts increasing doesn't matter. The buttock shattering strength of the farts now doesn't matter. All that matters is that a big fart also happened a long time ago. 

    See, now no one needs to worry about their diets or internal bowel systems? We can just keep on farting like there's no tomorrow. Simple.

    Is that a good thing or a bad thing......will it make a significant difference to anything?;)

    I’m on the side of the lowly worker, as ever. This place has underpaid staff for years, getting away with it by taking on foreign second jobbers needing a good name on CV who leave after a year.

    Only now they’ve downgraded to first jobbers, and no one wants the work because they can get more wonga elsewhere. Serves them right. 

    In broader terms I think it’s good as it will hopefully feed into inflation stats and cause earlier monetary policy tightening. 

    What do you reckon winkie?
