Someone I work with has recently got a Mercedes A Class on finance. They said it was actually cheaper than getting something like a Ford Focus because depreciation is factored into the repayment levels.

That's true. You're making a loss on almost any car you buy - even classics. It's smarter than many realise to never own a car.

That's true if you see a car as solely a financial investment.

If I buy a classic car, it'll be for the enjoyment of the car, not a potential future profit.

Agreed, I've owned a number of classics and I think it's a bit of a shame some of these machines are kept in storage and never actually driven. It does sort of defeat the point for me.

Nevertheless it's certainly possible to turn a profit on a classic, but only really ones that enthusiasts can stomach being restored. A Dino with non-original parts is simply a money sink, whereas you can buy an old farm Defender, refurbish it and change the engine and still make twenty grands profit.

/news/14235 Catalexit Episode 3: Revenge of the Sí
Those pesky Catalans have been voting again.

The main pro-Leave alliance has picked up 66 seats, one short of a majority. As before, they could get CUP on board, since they also support independence, but they're a bit like the Kippers of the independentist movement - they're anti-EU populists, whereas nationalists have been quite vocal about securing an independent Catalonia within the EU. However, because Vice-President Junqueras pulled the Republican Left (ERC) out of fugitive President Puigdemont's united front (JxSi/JxCat), neither is the single largest party. That honour, together with the privilege of getting first crack at forming a government, goes to the pro-Remain liberal Citizens' Party (Cs), though that'll be difficult if the big pro-Leave parties won't put the status issue aside to work with them.

tl;dr: It's popcorn time in Barcelona again

Maybe now, but the peak in 1992 was during bad times was it not?
My expectation would be that lots of people start in the good times, then struggle on for a bit until the bad times come. For 1992, my completely speculative guess would be lots of people/companies who got into housing-related stuff during the Lawson boom suddenly found they weren't in sustainable circumstances when the music stopped.

>My expectation would be that lots of people start in the good times, then struggle on for a bit until the bad times come.

The thing is that during times of considerable economic growth, the market is forgiving towards those that don't allocate resources efficiently. Healthy growth rates can overshadow the fact that somebody who starts their own company or business might not really have the required business acumen to survive long-term. You may be making good money from the word go, but again, there are times when turning a profit is like shooting fish in a barrel. It is usually when growth rates and revenues in an industry decrease that the market will shake out those again who aren't using their resources efficiently enough. If you survive your first recession with your newly founded business, then that might be an indication that your business is here to stay. There is such a thing as Darwinian selection in the business world, where startups (but also established companies) will only survive if they are among the fittest, and where frequent catastrophes will hone the survival skills of those who make it past such a catastrophe. Just look at all those dotcom companies. Only a scarce handful of them survived the Internet boom of the late 1990s. The overwhelming majority of them really had no sound business model whatsoever, they had often quite harebrained business ideas, and they were really just along for the ride, because banks and other investors where throwing huge amounts of money at you if you even so much as had a fancy sounding, portmanteau-derived name and your business plan mentioned the words "New Economy", "Internet", "e-commerce", or ".com".

One prominent term in those days was the cash burn rate. It signified the rate at which you were burning through your liquid assets that had been injected into your pseudo company by giddy banks and stock investors who believed the lie. There are stories of startup founders using that money to fly to New York on the Concorde for lunch and champagne, and then back the same night. Just because they could, with the money that banks and investors had entrusted in them. While they were really not (or not yet) turning a single penny of profit on their actual business model. And really ended up not ever turning a penny of profit.

Boom phases are typically also when a successful change of career for somebody who has worked in industry x but wants to work in industry y is most likely. In recessions, you often have people wanting to retrain because nobody is hiring in their line of work, but it's really at times when the economy is booming, or beginning to boom that you should think about a career change. Because at some point, the existing resources in an industry, including skilled and eperienced workers and employees, will be operating at their maximum capacity, and because there will be no more trained personnel to hire, employers will be ready to make compromises and hire people who haven't worked in a particular field before as such. Going back to the Internet boom again, there were times when advertising agencies were so desperately looking for people who could compose web pages that it was enough if you had spent a few weekends at home teaching yourself HTML and had a cursory understanding of graphics design from fiddling around with a pirated copy of Photoshop.

Quite. When Croatia added the EU rubric to theirs, they seem to have gone from their old blue to an even darker blue. Looks black to me, but apparently it's still officially blue.

Of course, the greater irony is that adopting the burgundy was the first time we'd really exercised any self-determination on the matter. The old blue was forced on us by the League of Nations, as was having everything in French. The contents of the current passport go above and beyond the requirements of the ICAO at the behest of the US. Proper TAKIN ARE CUNTRY BACK innit.

Do you know who else has a blue passport? I wonder how long it will be before every airport in the world has a "blue passport" line.

I am quite sure the line will move really quickly, particularly those based overseas - nobody discriminates on colour, right.

International travel in five years time is going to be just great.

/uhu/2346 Garage w/ no mains, recommendations
I'm renting a garage with no mains power. I'd like a cheap and cheerful way to light it.

I could go the whole hog and buy a generator, but I've read that's noisy and expensive.

Ideally I'd like some sort of LED light, but I'm worried that it won't be powerful enough to light a fairly large garage. I don't know much about lighting, lumens, etc.. The benchmark I want is to be able to do basic maintenance or read a book with the garage door closed.

A related but less important thought is that I'd also like a heater. This wouldn't need to be much at all, just enough to take the chill off if I'm out there for a couple of hours.

For comparison, a normal 60 watt bulb puts out 800 lumens and a 100 watt bulb puts out 1600 lumens. That would be a reasonable range for adequate lighting of a single garage.

Your choice will depend on how much battery life you need. If you'll only be in there for a few hours at a time, I'd suggest a rechargeable work light. This will give you a broad area of bright light, like an outdoor security light. The one at the link below will run for three hours on a charge at a maximum brightness of 1400 lumens. If you'll be in there a lot, I'd suggest adding a leisure battery, which will give you much longer running times. For working on the car, I'd also suggest a headlamp, which will give you good lighting in awkward corners.

For heating, you've got a choice between propane and paraffin. A propane heater is generally a bit cheaper to buy and heats up faster, but you have the inconvenience of taking your gas cylinder to be refilled. A paraffin heater can be a bit smelly and you occasionally have to fiddle about with mantles and wicks, but it's less faff to refuel. In either case, you'll want to make sure that your garage is very well ventilated and I'd suggest a carbon monoxide alarm.

Thanks. I had just stumbled on worklights when I noticed your post. I was about to pay the same price for a 750 lumen light. I went for your suggestion instead.

I probably won't be out there for any more than two or three hours a time.

About gas heaters, would some kind of little camping heater be suitable? Something like:

I might as well put a carbon monoxide alarm in there ahead of time, as it seems like something that should be in a garage anyway.

Those little camping heaters run on disposable butane canisters, which will get quite expensive over time. They're a reasonable choice if you just need to take the chill off occasionally. You can buy a second-hand paraffin heater for about £50, which would be a more economical choice if you're in the garage a lot.

Binance was the fastest growing exchange of 2017. With their frequent token additions, superior customer support, and the proprietary fee reducing BNB token, they went from a rank 60 exchange to a rank 3 exchange in the course of several months.

The first people to join Binance are essentially retired. They purchased BNB token for a fraction of a dollar. And they were able to spread many referrals as the exchange was up and coming. I know people who are living lavishly off passive income solely from their web of binance. Anyone who takes trading seriously is registered there.

Dividend paying exchanges are going to surpass Binance in 2018. Why would you hold a token that gives you a fee reduction when you can hold a token that gives you a share of the exchange's daily profits? Combined with a lucrative referral program, the user is incentivized to draw traffic to the exchange, further increasing their profits.

Why am I telling you this? Well you probably already know. More referral bullshit yes. What separates an MLM pyramid scheme from a valuable referral program? Legitimacy of the product. If you are peddling essential oils and bullshit makeup products then you are quite literally promoting a scam. If you support cryptocurrency then you have no choice but to get behind Binance.

Currently the exchange is overwhelmed with new user registration. This is increasing daily.
1500 referrals on binance to active traders nets between 50-100k per year passive income (and increasing) for the few people I've seen.

If you believe the crypto market is going to continue growing as a whole in 2018, then this is very valuable.

In exchange for sharing this info with you, all I ask is that you use my referral code upon signup. At the very least sign up so you can buy Ripple in time for the moon this quarter. You lose nothing for signing up with my referral. I will send the first several people who do so 100 XRP.

I just finished reading most of William Gibson's work. I love his creativity and scene building, but most of his stories are quite horribly written, and he obviously has issues with women.

Are there any cyberpunk novels with a somewhat more realistic view of human nature? The only other author I know is Neal Stephenson, and his stuff is fedora tier.

> I'm not sure why everyone like to suck Gibson's dick for Neuromancer (1984), considering Blade Runner and Tron (1982).
> Gibson didn't innovate anything in particular, he just got lucky and was made into a symbol.

What Gibson really achieved with the sprawl trilogy, far beyond his unrealistic imaginings of cyberspace or his prediction of the Internet of Things was capturing the hearts and minds of an entire subculture of teenage hackers and phreaks. Gibson was able to capture both the thrill of hacking and drive and desire to hack incredibly well, while also fueling the fires of many a teenage fantasy that they could one day be a "cyberspace cowboy" or a "digital samurai" selling their hacking talents to the highest bidder (which, to be fair, most of us actually are).

Essentially the "cyberpunk dystopia" setting was entirely arbitrary and interchangable; other than the silly bit where the AIs merge and become the matrix, Case and Bobby's stories could have been transplanted into any setting with technology advanced enough for Gibson's mumbo jumbo to pass muster and the trilogy would still have had the same success.

> Snowcrash a couple of years ago I thought they were just simply bad. Terrible pacing, trite characterisation... just badly written in general.

Did Stephenson ever really write any sincere cyberpunk fiction? Snowcrash was an on-point lampoon of cyberpunk for the most part, with every character, idea and scenario stereotyped and turned up to 11 for (admittedly negligible) comedic effect (Hiro Protagonist? Come on).

I liked those movies, although the Sprawl novels are much longer and have a lot more details. I might check out Judge Dredd again, it was very similar to Gibson's world but didn't take itself as seriously IIRC.

The '60s novels are not bad. One I enjoyed was "Player Piano" by Kurt Vonnegut. He is not as imaginative as William Gibson, but his characters are a lot better, except for the poor people. You can tell that he was a little too bourgeois to let his imagination run wild, or get into the heads of real poor people. I also enjoyed seeing a novel from over 50 years ago deal with the "robots will steal our jobs" nonsense.

It's generally nicer if you use a bong. But a pipe is easier to clean and doesn't have the risk of spilling bong water all over the carpet. If you do get a pipe, try to get a long one and keep it as clean as possible.

I used to use a rather petite bamboo pipe I bought in amsterdam, but I found that if the hash was really, really good them I could basically smoke the fucker off the edge of a coin. Some friends used to use a pair of hot knives.

She's not even that attractive. I am one of the people who believe most women about harassment, but a hand on a knee? None of this story makes any sense.

The porn must be really bad. I want to know which site he was looking at.

How can this be a resignation-level scandal? There is something we aren't being told.

Having said that, she does look like a slightly pudgy version of the second cousin I occasionally have sex dreams about.

Do any of you lads give money to charity at Xmas?

If so, which ones and why?

I donated 50 quid to the victims of the Boxing Day tsunami in 2004.

We've got a charity thing at work every year at Christmas where you can voluntarily donate ten quid or whatever amount you feel comfortable giving, and it usually goes to a worthy cause. This year, we've decided to donate the money to a charity that helps elderly pensioners who've got no next of kin and/or nobody else looking after them. They've got volunteers who help those people around the house or with their daily shopping, or just keep them company a few hours a week. Seems like a good thing to donate money to.

Buying at least £5-10 worth of food (anything canned, pasta, etc) and donating it to the local food bank every week.

Every year, I go around town and give socks and selection boxes to rough sleepers. It's not a particularly cost-effective form of philanthropy, but I've got a karmic debt that needs to be repaid.

Rough sleepers are always desperate for socks, because no bugger ever donates them and they wear out really quickly on the streets. When you're trudging around town in all weathers, you get soaked to the bone. If you don't have the opportunity to regularly dry yourself out and get a proper wash, then your feet get absolutely fucked. When you do get a wash in a hostel or a day shelter, you're using the same shower as a load of manky bastards, so everyone gets verrucas and athlete's foot. Trench foot is remarkably common and gangrene isn't unheard of. Having a few pairs of clean, dry socks in your backpack makes a world of difference.

On a similar note, consider donating toiletries to your local food bank. Toothpaste, soap, toilet paper and sanitary products are essential items, but people rarely think to donate them. Food banks often get large donations of short-dated food from supermarkets and caterers, but toiletries don't have a sell-by date.

Looking at that I am guessing that the cup was rather ill fitting and when he was kicked it trapped his bollocks between the cup and thigh. To be honest he's lucky not to have lost a plum.

I used to adore The Great Egg Race - it was one of those Friday evening, BBC2 events that any thinking person used to watch (see also, The Adventure Game).

They don't seem to make programs like this anymore - I guess Scrapheap Challenge is the nearest. WHY?

Yeah, like, if they were building a vehicle that needed an engine, they would find exactly the kind they needed in perfect working order in the destroyed shell of a car, obviously planted there by the producers.

>they'd quite like to see Christopher Biggins cut his thumb off with a reciprocating saw or one of the cheeky girls setting fire to herself with an acetylene torch.

I'd watch it.

Maybe this is how Gladiators got started in ancient Rome; first came the struggling remake with an outdated format, then they got C-list celebrities in to perform ever more extreme bush-tucker challenges for the ratings.

One time they had to make zepplin/hot air balloons, and a team just happened to look in a car boot and find huge sheets of some fucking silvery aeronautical tarpaulin stuff to craft into a balloon.

You just have to picture the real life situation where a man chucked his car away, then got home all like 'Oh crumbs, I forgot that NASA UFO bedsheet shit I drove a falling apart car many hours away to buy from some kind of specialist source. I can afford only to buy a new car, or new UFO clingfilm, but not both.'

I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you.

But seriously, what I can tell you is that that "new world order" think tank which turned me down has been rumoured by independent media outlets to have been instrumental in destabilising the Ukraine and Russia as well as a few Latin American countries through covert operations and attempts to influence public opinion. Which seems all the more vomit inducing to me, so in hindsight, I am glad they turned me down.

I could tell you more, but from this point on, it would kind of seem unwise to do that on a publicly accessible image board. Buy me a pint at your local pub, and we'll talk.

I do mean independent media outlets, btw. Not some conspiracy cunt web sites spouting baseless claims. And it also wasn't RT.

Again, I can't say more. Just know that at some level, behind the scenes, politics is every bit as dirty as some people believe. And then some. It's a dirty, foul smelling cesspit of the worst that can be brought out in people.

I recently read this - it is wonderfully sourced and full of interesting details. I enjoyed the book very much, but I came out of it with much the same view as you express here - the reality of how things are done in government/parliament is pretty unpleasant when you see it laid bare.
