  1. Welcome to your Uber rabbit hutch, due to a current pricing surge in your area your rent is being increase 400%, if you are having trouble paying this Uberbank will arrange a loan to carry you over the current surge.
  2. Try snowheads.com, it is supposed to be a ski website but the "apres" section is full of middle aged blokes arguing about stuff. Don't expect illiberal views to be welcomed with open arms but the bloke who runs it rarely locks threads or bans anyone.
  3. > It said that that while the leadership was strongly committed to diversifying the economy beyond oil, that intention might not be enough. What are they planning? Selling sand to Brighton?
  4. I see the US has now back pedaled after tweeting that they destroyed an ISIS tank in support of their SAA partners. They retweeted without the SAA part.
  5. USAF seemed to be providing a lot of support to the SAA in Palmyra and is now doing so in Deer ez Zor. So what they say in the UN and what they do on the ground appear to be different things.
  6. We must have half a dozen pikeys come around each summer offering that service. Always have non lettered white vans and number plates with no department identifier on them. Some are actually offering a service, some are just casing your house so they can come back later to thieve everything. A few neighbours have had their roofs done but as you say, it is stupid. One guy in town had the thieving pikeys on his roof with a big petrol driven jet washer. Gippo #1 turned the spray on and blew himself off the roof suffering serious injuries to his back (allegedly). The householder was arrested by the police because he didn't check the people he employed were registered or paying tax (they are pikeys, they pay tax to no mortal, doh!) and he is now facing a huge compo bill from injured pikey who is going around in a wheelchair for a workplace injury.
  7. Like barter. You can confiscate the produce of farms but pretty soon afterwards you have a famine on your hands.
  8. I'm seriously tempted to immigrate to the UK and live off tax credits, they sound fantastic.
  9. I was out practicing this morning, all the shots were dropping a bit to the left. I must adjust the sights.
  10. Are the SDF the heart eating islamonutjobs, or some other group of terrorists?
  11. French TV had a report on the Brexit a couple of days ago and the banks were talked about, particularly whether Paris would pick up a huge amount of banking business. The experts that were interviewed concluded that there was zero change of the banks moving out of the city for all the reasons they were currently there including an experienced labour pool, infrastructure, good place to do business. At most they would move the pass-porting operations offshore but were more than likely just going to run brassplates with as few staff as they could get away with in some European center. That could be Paris due to the Eurostar links.
  12. Another article from the Indy http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/no-more-arab-revolutions-a7492591.html with signs of realism.
  13. Interesting. I was at Siemens Munich from 87 to 91 and they certainly didn't speak or work in English then. Most people could speak reasonable (but not fluent) English though. I had to speak German and documentation was in German.
  14. I was interested to see French TV news had sent a journalist into east Aleppo where he spoke to some of the locals (no they were not all evacuated as the BBC would have you believe). He was surprised to find that the locals were happy to see the back of the rebels who had made their lives hell. The BBC carried the French TV pictures yesterday but cut the interviews with the locals and instead implied that all the locals had gone. The Beeb then cut to Bana the Tweeting 7 year old, neither she or her mother were able to speak English close to the level in her tweets - so obviously someone else was behind the whole thing.
