This Week Has Been Rather Epic

Recommended Posts

Excuse the pointless post but over the last day or so everything seems to be unravelling rather quickly.

Anyone else get the feeling we are on the brink of something immense? Everyone pray to the gods for a positive Halifax figure, otherwise we're doomed.

I bought some baked beans in Tesco yesterday - £2 for 6 cans and by the time I got to the checkout they were £3.37. Talk about inflation.

Thankfully, a suitable rant resulted in Tesco paying me £3.37 to walk away with the baked beans.

:blink:

You are not wrong, I think that a tipping point has been reached and it's only going to mean a larger slice of sh*t pizza for the over leveraged, benefit dependant and everyone who has been silly with finances and lifestyle choices the last decade or so.

Have I mentioned guns,gold and baked beans yet? :ph34r:

Indeed, it's all going swimmingly. I can remember as a five year-old lad the excitement of watching a relative of mine hit the jackpot on a fruit machine. Every day now feels just like that. Pay day is coming!

Got gold?

No gold. Just a car. A hideaway far up in the hills. A wood pile. Food supply. Water purification kit. Some livestock. And a gun.

What more could one wish for ? B)

I don't think we'll see the collapse of civilisation and total anarchy. Argentina didn't descend into a mad max apocalypse when their economy went broke. It just meant savings and pensions went up in smoke and people lost out. Are icelanders raping and pillaging each other? Is Russia still here after their massive collapse in the 90's?

Having said that, I'd be gunned up to the max if I lived in the US, but here in the UK, things will just be sh1t and people will lose a lot of money unless they've taken out the, cough, appropriate insurance. :ph34r:

For most it'll pretty be life as they know it, but seen through a pair of sh1t-tinted glasses. ;)

The stock markets are flying!

DOW looks like it might hit 11K soon.... Need comment from Godley on this :)

Is this the last spike before the big one that some have been speaking about? I seem to remember that Tamara has so far got this right...

Thing is, if we have MASSIVE deflation and collapse of the system your gold will also suffer massively.

After an apocolypse, lead outbids gold. :ph34r:

So true :ph34r:

Easily melt down less than 3g of lead, moulded to a bullet shape & take all the gold you want!

Don't think there's much to get excited about - yet ...

Imagine that...! The irony... I'm talking "excited about yet" as if I'm getting some nice large bonus rather it's cuts and pain and frankly the only reason why I may get excited is the end point i.e. wtf would this do to house prices..

I've changed since trying to get on the ladder .. getting excited on Austerity cuts - who would have thought this of me 3/4/5 years or more ago.

Anyway..seems like one should hold onto whatever excitement they feel inside until 20 Oct - after the spending review and all it's "glory" has been heard

Another factor to bear in mind is when the cuts take effect i.e. 2011 or 2012 or 2013 etc..

Excited on cuts..my my my what is happening to us ehh??

I think your going to be disappointed with the 20th, all the signs are the intentions are not really there to tackle the problem, just to muddle along.

When to my packing guy today.

I view the packers and shippers as barometers of the economy. After all, if stuff isn't moving about then the economy is bad.

Mr Bubble Wrap reports business is better than ever. Mr Shipper is very busy. They don't need to BS me (and can't, as I can see the amount of stuff in the warehouses).

I suppose it could be loads of people packing up to leave.

To be honest, we are in a bubble here on HPC.

FTSE is rising, employment is rising, house price indices are flat and even rising in some instances.

What we have seen though is how real spending cuts leads to much gnashing of teeth and bearish news. October 20th is going to be brutal and could represent the tipping point on sentiment.
