    What a fabulous season to finish off a great tv show VEEP.

    Finale was superb, up there with the last episode of the Sopranos.

    My only gripe.

    SPOILERI get how frivolous TV audiences are, but the cut away to the Hanks death at the end was just strange.
    This too shall pass.

      I posted 6 months ago about losing my job, than the feeling that I was being scapegoated. Got some good advice here at the time, thanks again all. I never really reached a conclusion as to what happened. But I don't care. The change absolutely worked out better for me.
      I walked into a contract role within a week. Senior position, with a pay increase - although contract means no holiday or sick pay, but also means I get actually hourly not a salary. Swings and roundabouts. I held off on making the "new job" post for 6 months because I didn't want to get ahead of myself. But they've talked about making me perm since before Christmas so doing something right. It's a much bigger company, so more change of progression and working on some big jobs.
      Anyway just said I'd post something positive for a change. Hopefully it gets the Hotspur seal of approval

        Apollo 11 is absolutely stunning. Superbly put together, and plays more like a film than a documentary. gripping stuff and the footage they found is unbelievable. Feels like i was there, and the heart is still racing.

          Definitely worth catching up with for anyone who hasn't seen it.

          New series starts tonight on Dave at 9pm, not the most appealing cast at first glance though.

          Joe Thomas is really weird, always looks somewhere between awkward and terrified when he has to interact with anyone. Bit of a problem if planning to do the celebrity panel show circuit.

                      Running around on the slipway in Howth with the brownies. Fell and it all went through the left wrist.

                      Buckle fracture indeed. Cast for a few weeks then grand.

                      In the daytime they have advanced nurse grades that can assess and treat minor stuff like this. At night however, they have none and you wait....and wait....and wait. Fucking health service would be a hell of a lot better with efficient resource allocation, wouldn't cost a penny.

                        Drew Harris seems to be shaking things up alright, Superintendent arrested this morning along with some other guards seemingly over collusion with a criminal gang. Poor old Paul Reynolds and Williams are gonna have to do more than make up stories about guards eating cornflakes boxes for breakfast to bury this stuff

                          It's the prison service that really needs looking at.

                                Seems like Trump's ego has bern bruised by the suggestion that he shouldn't meet a fellow head of state at one of his commercial enterprises.

                                  Ouch!

                                  I wonder did they tell the punter. You'd be a little sick if you only found out the next day.

                                    With normal restaurant markups it's possibly not that exceptional a bottle anyway?
                                    they'd ordered a £230 bottle to start with anyway so they intended to drink a good wine regardless. From what i read that le pin pomerol 2001 is very exclusive, only 500 cases of it were ever made so it is incredibly rare and not many people have actually tasted it, but it is considered to be pretty exceptional. it retails around 2.5 to 3k a bottle

                                                The Tory-Labour Brexit talks have collapsed. No surprise, given the extreme fuckwittery of both leaders.

                                                So over to parliament for more gobshitery next week.

                                                Nature abhors a vacumn. Who better to fill a vacumn than PM Boris?

                                                UK is fucked, fucked utterly.

                                                  I presume many here have watched BBC's Storyville - Brexit:behind close doors.

                                                  Kinda eyeopening in a sense that the EU team basically call their UK counterparts fuckwits at every opportunity. I'm sure the fuckwits themselves, after watching the documentary, will dig their heels in even more now.

                                                      They are fuckwits though, cant argue against it. And they aren't digging their heels in about anything, just not a breeze what to do. Wouldnt matter if UK had sent the greatest negotiators in human history, still would have ended up with a similar deal and UK parliament would have rejected that too. Theresa May is in the Junior Soprano role last year or 2, lightning rod to take the hits for the next hopefuls. Big Problem is the UK has only got Litte-Carmine Lupertazzis scheming to get the big job, no Tony Sopranos.

                                                        Really there is nothing in the two hours, except for the Olly Robbins joke about wanting the Belgian passport, that hadn't been said in public or extensively reported already. If you were to look at the comments made at which offence could be taken they were as nothing compared to the abuse levelled from London towards them.

                                                                        Like I reported yesterday the put options I had previously sold were exercised and I was forced to buy the stock at 420. My opinion is that this was not isolated but a strategy to cause multiple margin calls in retail forcing a huge dump of shares. I believe that is what we are seeing today, forced liquidations. Ordinarily I would say that if the shorts were smart they would start covering, but what the hell do I know about being smart with TSLA anyway? Should have bought puts after I covered the margin I guess....

                                                                        Anyway this is probably an all out attempt to drive stock below 200 and trigger that famous margin call on Elon which I do not believe exists. Bought some more at 220.

It's a forum of enthusiasts who are pumping money into it. They like the car so ergo it must be a great investment. Elon is some sort of demigod to them.

                                                                                  A solid year long decline in the stock while everything else is going up doesn't phase them, it's all a conspiracy or the analysts "don't get it". There's no dissenting opinion. It's a good illustration of why you should talk to people who disagree with you.

Think the fork itself is worth saving, as it's some serious metal from the 70's. Went at the rivet with a drill, and was getting nowhere fast. Took out the angle grinder, that hadn't been used in years, and glad I eventually found some goggles. Angle grinder worked a treat.
