So I sold a fairly high value model train on ebay. It arrived to the buyer in a damaged state (although it could probably be fixed by a very skilled modeller), but he thankfully paid extra for insurance. The insurance claim has come through and I am now in a position to give the buyer a full refund.

What's the correct course of action from here? I was planning on giving him a full refund and letting him keep the train, but a jewish friend of mine says that I should ask for the damaged model train back before refunding him, because the buyer shouldn't get to keep both the train and the insurance money.

I'd take a lateral thinking approach to OP's moral quandary. If the person is geographically east, let him keep the train. Something in the packing was overfull, something unforeseen happened in transit, whatever - the train itself is now worthless. Trains going east to mysterious holiday destinations, these things happen.

If he is in any other direction, ask for the train back and tell my fellow jewlad he's a tight prick.

You are just too stupid to see the obvious Sopranos references. The Jew friend is obviously Hesh and the debt is the vig that was only paid off after his moolinian goomad had died. OP is some sort of train model master Tony, he takes insurance on all of his major business investments, but circumstances beyond his control break the various systems (or toy trains) that he owns. Vito, Richie Aprille, Ralph Cifferetto, Tony Blundetto, Chris Moltasanti and even his own son end up failing OP toy train tony.

The religious conatations are quite striking, the Catholic representation of Jesus and the stark contrast between his Jesus killing friend's stinginess often relates to how toy train Tony had behaved throughout his life.

OP is just operating on a troll level that is above the average .gs user, only a few enlightened understand the tragedy he is enacting through this humourous train thread. Perhaps you should just imagine an Italian mob version of Thomas the Tank engine and his mates.

Most homeless people as for money or cigs.

I'm totally fine giving them cigs and having a chat while I roll it, but now I've realised that I'm unambiguously hastening their death. I mean, it'd be easy to murder a homeless person by giving them something tainted, and since cigarettes are already essentially poisonous, am I not just doing the same thing?

Should I stop giving them cigarettes because I feel guilty that I'm slowly murdering them, or should I keep giving them cigarettes because it makes them happy?

>We can get all that stuff without being in the EU.

As I've said in another thread, maybe we can get most of the benefits of EU membership by joining EFTA, but there's a huge amount of uncertainty over what we stand to lose. We'd be in a very weak negotiating position, because we'd need to very quickly replace half a century's worth of legislation, trade agreements and treaties. We'd also permanently lose most of our influence over EU policy. By becoming an isolated country on the periphery of Europe rather than an integral member of the European Union, we might end up with less control over our own affairs. We would need to conform to a lot of European standards or face significant barriers to trade, but we wouldn't have a say in those standards.

It will be advantageous to be on the outskirts when the EU finally implodes.

Germany won't keep bailing out Greece (and friends) forever. Neither the Germans nor the Greeks will keep it up - because they are not EU member states first, they are sovereign countries. When Greece (or maybe Italy) drops out of the Eurozone, the whole system will crumble, and even the BBC will have to admit the ever-closer-union was not a good idea.

I suspect you're probably a troll, but on the off-chance that you are serious and really are this stupid, then don't vote Leave unless you really, genuinely do want us to leave. This isn't a referendum on Cameron or the Tory government. It's not an opportunity to make like Flower of Scotland and send him homeward to think again. This is not an opportunity for you to get one over on the poshos. That the referendum is technically not binding doesn't make it any of those things. It is a question on our membership of the EU, nothing more and nothing less.

I'm not sure if there's a better board to ask this, but here it goes.

What's stopping me from renting a self-enclosed office and living in it? Is there usually a term in the lease that prevents this? Will anyone really care?

My plan would be to hole up for about a year and use the HUGE amount of money I'd save for a mortgage deposit. I travel a lot for work anyway, so I'd probably only be sleeping there half the time.

I did assume the council would be probably the only people who would care (since I'd not exactly be paying them council tax)

But would they figure it out? Do the council often poke around office complexes for this sort of thing?

One of your neighbours might grass you up, or the landlord could chuck you out.

It's fairly common in London for people to live in "artists studios". Many landlords of these properties advertise 24 hour access with kitchen and shower facilities, with a nudge and a wink towards living there.

If you want to do it legally, you could opt for a property guardianship scheme. These schemes rent out rooms in vacant commercial properties at a reduced rent to deter squatters and vandalism. The downside is that you have no security of tenure, so you can be evicted with no notice.

There is one problem with this that would be a complete deal breaker.

If you try to register on the electoral roll using an address at a business premises, it will raise a massive red flag at the council.
However if you disappear off the electoral roll, you'll almost certainly find it impossible to get approved for a mortgage.

The only way around this would be to pretend that you're living at a family or friends address for all official/financial purposes.

They do get a fair amount of information from data matching. If you take up services that look like residential services in property that doesn't have residential planning permission they'll certainly think about digging into it. The premises will be subject to rates, for which a debtor has even less protection than against council tax.

You' know when you have to pick out something from the bottom of the sink but its full of hot water, anyone else noticed if you rinse your hand under the cold tap first it kind-of creates a barrier so you can quickly dip your hand in and out with it hurting you.

Whats the deal with that? Does the cold water create a temporary barrier like a liquid rubber glove or is it something to do with tricking your senses?

Google isn't being helpful and for some reason I'm the only one who knows about it. Like how if butter is being uncooperative you can heat the knife on the stove despite that being fairly logical if you ask me.

When I was in secondary school I was partially responsible for a girl who had a seizure and managed to step on (and embed in her foot) an upturned plug as she was spazzing out. She was off school for a couple of weeks while her foot healed, and had to go around in one of those foot brace things when she came back. I've felt a bit bad about it ever since as she could've hit her head and things could've gone even more pear-shaped. Not sure why your post reminded me of that, I haven't thought about it in years.

And then afterwards if she had wet herself or something one of them would go and help her clean up.

Some of us, including myself, genuinely care if Ambulancelad actually got his ambulance. So this is w they'd where we can ask our unanswered .gs questions from threads past and give answers if we are qualified to do so.

In a music thread there was once heavy hinting that Kunt and the gang have posted here due to some references in their lyrics. I have to know more, so please post the lyrics, scree grabs or whatever you maybe have.

Revengelad seems to have developed a myth around himself to the point that he gets confused with one of the screengrabbers as well as the teen who posted threats about taking the site down a few years ago. Clarification needed.

Did the guy who was going to hitchhike ad infinitum do so? Around Christmas someone also posted about having some money and a ticket to Thailand or similar. Are you there now?

I say "Fuck off" if I suddenly find myself thinking of some embarrassing moment that happened years ago that there's no need to think about it, that's about it. Although when I do talk to myself I use "we" instead of "I" a lot.

I get this OP, what is amazing is that it seems to be connected in no way to what I am doing it is like my mouth is on autopilot. Sometimes it's depeply insecure declarations of intent at suicide, other times it seems to be jargon related to strategy games. I find it flows pretty freely when I am concentrating on a problem that frustrates me.

I have catchphrases that come in and out of fashion within my own head. For example, a bastardised version of a South African man shouting ZE PERI PERI SAUCE was popular for a while. These phrases have no meaning or relevance to anything but I find my mind saying them over and over again for no particular reason.
