I'm Addicted To Hpc

Recommended Posts

Its raining, I'm feeling ill, so I'm drinking whisky!

So what do i do? Watch Eastenders with my girlfriend?

No way, I log onto HPC and read about possible doom and gloom scenarios.

Why is this? Am I sad?

I'm a FR'er (First Rung er), and I'll be godamn if I try and move up the ladder. No way, hose. I like my

lowish mortgage and comfortable way of life with my pregnant girlfriend and 18 month daughter. I earn enough

to provide for all of them, as long as I have a job.

My infatuation with HPC has opened to eyes of my colleagues at work - all Software Engineers - and open

minded. They now see me as some sort of economics statto, but I feel that the bear sentiment going around

at the moment is finally getting through to Joe Average - not that people with degrees are Joe Average, but even they

had no idea that house prices CAN go down!!! He says, with treble exclamation.

How many others are addicted to HPC like this? When I get into work the first thing I do is check out the newsblog!

My knowledge in economics is limited, but I'm clear in my mind that the current economic climate is very bad.

Just after I graduated in 1993/4 my Father was screaming at me to buy a house. Yes, earning 13k then, I could have bought a decent terraced. Ok prices were low. But I feel really sorry for todays graduates. This world is unfair.

Me too... I hardly watch TV now, so the net has just replaced it.

If some TV does come on that I might like, I watch it in a 4inch square window while surfing!!! :lol::lol::lol:

I'm crazy...

Lol, if you're sad COD, then we all are ... but I don't think that's the case, and I don't think we all come here purely to read about doom and gloom scenarios. Personally I have learnt much about the World economy and how it affects us here in the UK since I joined up. The Internet in general gives you so much more information than the bias BBC that most people seem to believe ... and I used to think it was just for looking at pictures of ladies! But then again, I haven't watched Eastenders for years so maybe I am missing out?

Edited for spelling and grammar ... when will I learn that white wine is not a substitute for a dictionary!

I hope it's good whiskey!

Far better to be on this website and thinking that sitting watching mindless rubbish on TV. Here you'll learn something.

But do yourself a favour and read some good books.

You're in a great position, hope like hell for a monster property crash, and you'll be able to jump a couple of rungs.

If it doesn't happen, well you have your own place without ridiculous levels of debt.

I've done a screen grab to show how my life is organised. Sometimes, I press the IMDb link:

Jason,

Not one link to a warez or porn site - are you for real????

Must admit the sad b@stards that watch Eastenders CANNOT call us doom-mongers. FFS that is so depressing - f*cking shithole of an area. The houses sell to anyone at silly prices, and they dont even work. They even go the cafe for a coffee when they live 2 doors down. Who the f*ck can afford a house in East London and afford to drink outl like, that whilst working on a market stall earning a few thripenny bits?

EA's describe it as up and coming area. More like going down and f*cking depressing to me!!! It's had murders, RTA's, Fires, Explosions, RAPE?, Doggy porn probably - always thought that Rolly entered through the back-door. Little Willy always looked worried ;) Letita Dean - Sharron - now she was a dog! Bet she got back-Skuttled a few times???

DEPRESSING SHITE THAT SHOULD NOT BE ON THE TV - NO WONDER THE INTERNET IS MORE EXCITING

Anyway - ON TOPIC NOW.

HPC is very addictive. I have not been around much lately. Partly coz you can only watch a kettle boil for so long and partly becuase me and my Long-term GF split up - so I dont need a house atm :rolleyes: Trying not to spend my deposit on Boys toys. Nearly bought a Honda Civic Sport - OMFG Its amazing! But I cant justify £18k on a car (HPC taught me that).

I watch it from a far MOST days and Im mostly interested in Gordon Brown being outted for the theiving, incompetent **** that he is. Cant wait till that tw@t gets his cum-uppance!

OMFG - this has turned into a rant. Sorry guys, didnt mean it, but Jason not having a porn link? It does make you wonder how reputable the posters are ;) (hee Hee)

Sorry to hear that Teddyboy (GF thing, not the civic).

That spare space is for porn, but I thought I'd be a good boy and not offend anyone! (Don't tell anyone) :lol:

I don't spend all my life on here, honest. But when ever i'm on a PC I have HPC ready in a browser! TV sucks at the moment, the only routinely thing I watch is channel4 news at 7pm - usually when having my tea!

Jason, you are indeed a total loser. Why anybody would want to spend more than 5 minutes on this site is beyond me. The HPC is never going to happen LOL. You are all wasting your time. get on with your life! All I see are sold signs around my area. The housing market is booming and so it shall for the years to come. I will be buying shortly with a 30k deposit and I will not give a second thought to a HPC. It's just propaganda from crazy people.

I want to own my own home not line the pockets of my landlord.

Now, go and do something useful with your life because you only live once!!!!!!!!!!!!

:o)

Jason - why exactly do you deprecate MoneySavingExpert? (Not that I use it.)

To be honest it's quite a good site where it helps those in debt (plus other things), but usually you'll find people only go there once they have a problem (so the users are more reactive, than proactive like on here).

I do also think Martin L. does a very good job warning about the dangers of debt.

Hi Neo! :P

My name is Alright Jack and I'm a doomaholic.

:lol:

I have a friend who thinks he *might* be a doomaholic. ;)

Interestingly I used to think I was addicted to this site, but I find I'm not here as often lately, so there is hope.
