    Went to buy a new work suit yesterday. Clothes shopping isn't something I'm mad about, I have to be in the right mood but suit buying is easy. I know my measurements so it's just a matter of finding one I like and picking out the right size.

    First two places didn't have anything that I fancied but the 3rd place was a charm. Had one picked out in no time and asked the guy working there for the sizes.

    Do you know your size? He asked.

    Yup, 42R on the jacket and 36" on the trousers.

    Are you sure? He questioned.

    'Positive, I've two suits at home with these measurements and wear them all the time'

    'Try this one for me'

    'That doesn't fit great, is that a 42R?'

    'No, that's a 42S'

    'Ah, no wonder, I'm a 42R'

    'Try this one for me please'

    'Perfect fit, this is a 42R, right?'

    'No, that's a 44R'

    'Oh'

    'Now the trousers, try them on for me please'

    'They fit perfect, 36", yeah?'

    'They're actually a 38'

    'Oh....'

    Diet starts tomorrow

        Many, upon quizzing have not watched programmes such as; The Wire, The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, The Shield etc.

        And actually pretty much refuse to do so.

        Blows my mind really. I know one or two who watched The Wire and were non-plussed by it, but in my mind, at least they gave it a go.

        I'm not innocent myself - Never seen the West Wing yet but must do.

          Do, i was totally unplanned. Was just slaving on the couch the last two days and it happened to be on Sky Atlantic from near enough start. Watched an episode and was hooked again.

              I've occasionally fantasised about how, if they could selectively
              remove memories from the brain,
              I'd erase The Wire and West Wing.

              Just for the chance to experience
              them repeatedly from scratch.

                Ah I think it’s only so watchable because of its rarity. No doubt it’s so very entertaining but every week you’d lose interest so fast, if there was even a way team matchplay would work.

                Doubly so for single matchplay.

                The Tour Champ just suffers from being so “not golf”. Giving a guy a 2 shot lead.

                There has to be a better way to build excitement but also give the most performant golfer of that year an advantage. I don’t know what it is. Matchplay isn’t it though.
                This may or may not be an original thought of my own.
                All efforts were made to make this thought original but with the abundance of thoughts in the world the originality of this thought cannot be guaranteed.

                  Cantlay didnt shoot the lights out this week. He was there for the taking. I guess Tiger Woods in his pomp would have loved a shot. Some great players and so many these days but they really go missing at times. A lot went missing this week. 11 under from Cantlay wasnt that great

Doug was saying on a podcast with Jason Les that he got talking to the woman who was cutting his hair recently (Min 20's) and it turned out she was also farming on pancake same as him. I found that incredible that some random is just out their knee-deep in this stuff. Jason Les's story btw is pretty incredible. Doug used to have a stable of players he coached for high stakes heads up and Jason is one of those guys. He transitioned out of poker a good while back and is now CEO of Riot Blockchain which is a multi-billion dollar company and the biggest Bitcoin mining operation in the world.
                    You don't really need to be tech-savvy at all, young people pick it up very easily. There are loads of explanations on tik-tok/reddit on how to farm. It's about as hard as learning the basics of Holdem. I think younger people are more willing to try new things and are also more comfortable with the idea of digital items having value. Pancakeswap had 1.7m unique users quite recently, so I doubt they are all super savvy coders!

                    That sounds fascinating, cheers, I'll give it a listen tomorrow. I just finished the Nate Silver episode which was pretty interesting - especially his limit poker background.

                          This place is gone to the dogs- people actually mentioning the wire and the west wing in same sentence-west wing is a terrible show that has done real world damage- it’s hilarious watching the cast even now weighing in in on politics as if playing political flunky make believe lends them any weight

                            I think the Timex (Mike Mcdonald) is the best one he has done so far. He seems to have an ability to be completely objective and see through the mud on almost every topic. He has some very funny views on the difference between an A and an A+ capitalist.

                              We've just started on the Chinese cultural war and starting to feel an element of shame that Ireland as a nation calls its main Chinese restaurant chain Mao.

                              Deng is still knocking it out of the park. Rescuing a seemingly unrescuable China from chaos. Right now its hard to see how he might have been responsible for Tianamen, given he is clearly so pro the people at this stage in his life in the 1960s. I'm trying to work it out from lifeclues as more and more of his life is uncovered. Wondering if maybe he developed a lifelong fear of student protest after the cultural war (his kid was pushed out a window and disabled by student protestors in the 1960s cultural war). Or maybe he just turned into an awful person as he aged, but its hard to see right now, when he is so clearly the hero in a way that Mao never was at any point.

                                          I do also like the like the leap of imagination that Ireland as a nation took a decision to name the chain thusly.

                                          I do remember being somewhere where everything was centrally named. Think it might have been Vietnam perhaps. 333 beer, 555 cigarettes.

                                            I though all Chinese restaurants were called the Great Wall.

                                              You could either stake the coins with AAVE, which does have some risks but an APR of 6.35% (you are helping to secure the system). Details here: https://www.stakingrewards.com/earn/aave/

                                              Or you could deposit the AAVE into AAVE and use the AAVE as collatoral, allowing you to borrow about 4k of stablecoins and yield farm with them on sushiswap, earning you about 10 - 15% yield on about 4k,

                                              A big advantage of the second route is you can use the polygon network with tiny fees, rather than Ethereum.

                                              Normally I'd say you should be aware of the risks, but give you already own AAVE you are already exposed to most of the risk. There will be a sharp learning curve for you so you need to decide whether the work is worth $500 a year compounding. I'm happy to talk you through it if you like.

                                                I lost my matchplay last 16 round yesterday morning. We were both playing really poorly tbf. It was over and back until the last couple of holes. Had an eagle putt from the fringe on a par 5 and got a tap bird for the only highlight where I had not even a solitary par. It's so crushing as it was probably my 2nd worst round this year and I still should have squeaked over the line.

                                                Likely shot about 99 or so, this is only a few weeks from shooting 84 and 88. Also, I had 4 pars in the first 6 holes on Saturday on a society day away from home which I ended up winning with 33 points. Just when you think you have something figured out, you realise you actually don't have a clue. What a game to kick you in the balls

Is this the case or what would the percentage be that are like that?

                                                          Commission is paid to us upfront one month after drawdown. In the event that you redeem your mortgage during the first 3 years, the lender will clawback commission paid to us on a reducing scale over the same period. In these circumstances and at our discretion we will in turn seek a refund of that amount directly from you.

Our fee will be notified to the lender who will include this fee into the calculation of the APRC (Annual Percentage Rate Charge).

                                                          If we provide mortgage advice and obtain a loan offer on your behalf and you subsequently do not proceed with your mortgage application through our firm, we will charge an arrangement fee of €500 for our services.

                                                          Please also note that some lenders may charge arrangement fees in certain circumstances. If this applies to you these fees will be specified in your Loan Offer. You have the right to pay this fee separately or to include this in your loan amount. Typically, this situation arises in relation to specialist lending.

                                                          If we provide mortgage advice and obtain a Loan Offer for you and you subsequently do not proceed with your mortgage application through our firm, we will charge you an arrangement fee of €500 for our services. In addition to this, we may in certain circumstances charge a fee for arranging a mortgage on your behalf. This fee may range up to 1% of the loan amount depending on the type of mortgage and time spent and will be advised to you upfront and in writing if this applies."

Is this the case or what would the percentage be that are like that?

He was saying that electric cars are walking out the door at the moment and they're starting to think of petrol and diesel cars as cars that need to be sold quick before the bottom falls out of the market. Maybe a desire to help me justify the purchase, but he had just bought his dad an electric using the company discount, so seemed to be speaking to the truth.
