    SO....AAAAHHH, I know we have gone over the whole you and maths thing on here before but this title of expert in personal finance the Independent gave you recently?

    Does being able to count not come into this?

      Watching Briarpatch at the moment. Not particularly well-rated and got cancelled after the first season, but seems a pity as there some fairly obvious strokes of excellence to it. The filming style is glorious, a bit like Better Call Saul in parts. Its got some problems, but you'd imagine with a second season those could have been ironed out.

        At what age do you feel people stop growing? Is it reach 18 and done? I'd imagine a lot of us did our major maturing in uni, in our twenties and thirties. A bit in our forties. Who knows maybe our fifties and sixties will be big decades too. You never stop growing if you don't want to elshambo, you just need to believe you can grow.

          What part did movies about a rapist spy, who announces himself as a spy to the bad guy as soon as plot possible, play in your process of maturing later in life ?

            I don't know, I'm just spitballing here!

            However any modern leader should focus on the challenges of tomorrow in Asia and Africa, but the challenges of yesterday. Although I'm sure China and India would love Biden to be distracted by Russia. Its only a $6 trillion dollar difference now ($15tn vs $21tn) between the US and China and the US should be devoting every second of their time coming up with smart* plans to handle this new economic reality of the US being less than a decade away from being a second rate economic power.



            * smart, as in actually smart and mutually productive. Not stupid plans like economic blocades where everyone loses.

              BLOBs are becoming the bane of my life. I did make a Mr Blobby joke on a call earlier that fell flat. How do people from India not recognise the unique cultural figure that is Noel Edmonds!

                I've looked into this in the past more extensively than is reasonable. The idea of a blue banana that tasted like vanilla ice cream would make up for a lot of the bad things in the world. Pretty sure I've posted on here about it. Anyhoos, having watched various video reviews of people eating their first one it doesn't appear to really taste like vanilla ice cream, but all agree it's very tasty.

                The bananas we know (99% of exported bananas are the Cavendish) may become extinct soon as they are being attacked by Panama disease which it was once resistant to. And given that they're sterile they cannot evolve their way out of it.

                I think I should do a monthly Banana Watch segment.

                  I remember driving through banana plantations in Northern Arsetralia and all the tree trunks were covered with what looked like tinfoil. Presumably to deter some class of scavengers but can't work out what.

                    HR have asked me to do an inter country Jerusalem dance off. I responded 'only if I can do it Naked ' . An excellent tactic as I'm off the team. Phewww.

                      How awful. Organizations tripping over themselves trying to give off a Lego movie style "everything is awesome" when you work for us cringe vibe.

                      Fcuking guards out dancing around the country must be leaving some unsupported crime victims with a bad taste in their mouth. Sorry sergeant, the drone didn't get that last take. Reset and do it again. Five hours later. Double time OT.

                          You're making a play for PSV's crown aren't you? You've been slowly consolidating your position recently, and hoping to take advantage of the fact that he's probably blocked by half the people here.

                            Strewelpeter do I recall you having bees? I was watching that show The Missing and the lead has become a bee hobbyist in his spare time but he can't get them to produce honey. I thought of you watching it and was wondering if I was getting confused.

                            I know someone else on here has them but don't want to tag as I'm not 100% sure. Anyway I've since checked and it does seem like a pretty hard thing to get right.

                                  Forgive how silly this question is, but can you buy lottery tickets with debit cards? Have an inkling that tonight is my night to win the €210m on the euromillions, but vaguely remember overhearing someone trying to buy scratch cards (maybe not the same thing) with a card the other day and being turned down as its cash only. But wasn't fully listening to the conversation.

                                    Did you ever see that bee documentary, Honeyland? It was a big enough feature of that about always leaving the bees enough honey.

                                      You can do the lotto online with a debit card. They stopped accepting credit cards recently.

                                        Yeah just on www.lottery.ie, I only ever do ridiculous sized Euromillion draws on it, might need ID though.

                                          I don't want to go to the hassle of registering an account. Think I had an account and then it was shut down for lack of use, so it might be hassle to restart it. Does that mean you can't buy with your card in shops?

Now its needed again in another spot and I'm dragging up mails from 5 years ago and doing the usual dev prima donna act before obviously doing everyone the favour of fixing up their mess again

                                                                  Sometimes its fun to be the dickhead

Plus I am now a manager again which is my idea of hell. Yay.

                                                                  Didn't back your horse which would have pissed me off even more as it looked to be a case of the best horse in the race managing to get beat.

                                                                              I now have the option of being a yes man, and taking the paycheck, or moving and likely getting paid less.

                                                                              Is there a way you can just let it burn down around you and not stress? Cos thats my poor poor advice.

                                                                                        - is it maybe such a shitshow that even a small improvement will make you look like a god

                                                                                        - is it such a shitshow that no one will know if you are doing a good or a bad job

                                                                                        - do you need to parlay it rapidly into an exit plan as it will explode soon

                                                                                        - would a year in the position give you even more uplift in an exit plan

                                                                                        - can it be fixed and then you get annointed as the midas touch


                                                                                        (I'd imagine we all want to assign 100% to the last possibility, but maybe the smart money recognises the other four routes as very valid).
                                                                                        All good questions and my analysis had not gone into such fine-grained taxonomical classifications of shitshow, beyond the ability to recognise a shitshow when I am in one.

                                                                                        On reflection it's probably mostly B and I should just kick back and wait for the thing to explode. Frustrating though.

Plus I am now a manager again which is my idea of hell. Yay.

What use would anyone have for cash other than coke and hookers, and illegal builders.

He's a very impressive dude the Reith lectures he did for the BBC a couple of years ago were very good and I was very taken with this pot of his that in the Kelvingrove in Glasgow, right beside a most impressive Harry Clarke window
