    Wonder if there's a case for setting up a Ltd company or sole trader business purely for that?

      It's Feb/March 2020. How should covid have been handled. What should the governments of Ireland, the US, the UK wherever have done. With all the benefit of hindsight now, what would have been the max EV line? I think if we can establish that, it clears up a lot of criticism in general.
      I' m not placed to answer that, I'd argue very few if any people are. My personal answer is I dont know.

        Surely if you espouse a view that what has been done is wrong, it should be grounded in some view of what is right? Otherwise you fall into the category of contrarian crank?

          But don't agree it's out true nature unfortunately. If it were human nature, it would be the default position the world over. But sadly the gargantuan piles of evidence suggest that it's not the natural outcome left to our own devices. Humans like all creatures have an innate sense of self preservation, that we hold above the preservation of others. Again, I agree with we should strive for it, we should do so aware that it takes conscious effort and decision. Being able to make those altruistic decisions is what is separating use from the apes, slowly.
          This one I guess I do have an opinion but may not have the nuance to get it into words.

          I believe our true state just to be awareness itself, for the most part we spend very little time in that seat. From there, I absolutely believe it would be impossible to do anything to make another suffer etc. For years, I would have agreed with you entirely, an even more pessimistic outlook that some peoples natural state is evil. He is just a bit of a cunt etc. I know see it as one, our natural state is all the same, simple awareness. That whatever weird thing is it, is just 'love' not quite the word, but whatever word encompasses that state.

          I think the systems within the society we live in for the most part make us a huge dog to spend much time in that state. Loads of reasons why. I do feel like something is giving a bit. Breaking. A sort of global consciousness recognition that things simply cant go on from these states of contortion.

            I think this was always likely, but the figures now starting to bear it out. Indian covid deaths are officially ~400k but when you look at excess mortality, it looks more like 10*.

            Likely this is replicated in other countries where a combination of inadequate health systems plus political denialism has resulted in under-reporting.

                The exemption is so low that owning virtually any is liable for CGT though. Not specific to crypto, but but probably a higher proportion of new investors in crypto that are frustrated by it.

                  You don't pay CGT on ETF's, you pay a higher rate of tax (41%) and also have to pay tax every 8 years even if you don't sell them. One could buy a house just past the NI border and live down here really though :P

                      Well ok then, maybe few people if anyone can say with absolute confidence what the nut line would have been. But maybe we can all agree that doing nothing would a terrible option.
                      And if your opinion is that the line that they took was shit. Surely you have some idea of a middle ground that would have been better than those two bookends?

                      I agree that society creates a system where people are set up to lose. But I'm talking more about the natural state part.
                      Take 100 innocent toddlers, stick them on a isolated island. Create a prefect mesotopia where there's sufficient resources for everyone. A big harmonic sharing society is one outcome, but I think that Lord of the Flies is a more likely outcome. Self preservation is a fundamental characteristic of life. Self preservation means creating a benefit for ones self. But life is a zero sum game. A benefit for one, usually means a loss for another.

                          jbravado I think you would benefit greatly from studying some philosophy. What you and Mellor are arguing right now is essentially Hobbes vs Rousseau, an argument that started in 1651:

                          https://iai.tv/articles/hobbes-vs-ro...good-auid-1221

                          This discussion can only be resolved by the discovery of a Hegelian synthesis of the two polar opposites (thesis and antithesis), which I don't think you're going to find on a poker forum tbh. You have correctly spotted that most people here (including your former self) are extremely Hobbesian in their leanings, but going full Rousseau isn't going to provide a solution to that, it's just going to cause you a lot of cognitive dissonance. Neither approach is completely correct, the solution is in the continual hard work of finding alignments and making compromises.

                            Here's a snippet from the Dublin property market at present, might be of interest to some - we viewed a house on Saturday morning, won't link to it but you'll find it if you search, Woodlands Drive in Stillorgan.

                            Was placed on the market earlier in the year at €815K, went sale agreed without us viewing. Came back on in the last week or so at €845K, and we decided to take a look even though for us the €/sq foot is a bit high. That said we don't know the Stillorgan market that well. Anyhow, viewed it, it's nice but nothing spectacular (unlike a property I may have mentioned I saw a few weeks ago, 22 Glencairn Chase, fuck me that was amazing. Bidding quickly spiraled up to touching €1M though...).

                            Afterwards asked the Estate Agent what was the deal with the earlier sale agreed and return to market situation. The house, asking €815K, was bid up to €965K!!!!!!!! I was stunned. Over €600/sq foot and not even in tip-top decorative order or anything. The guy claimed there was an underbid of €915K still hanging around, but the owners wanted to go back to the market. Obviously have their hearts set on the mid 950s.

                            I'm still a bit stunned by these prices to be honest. We're currently no longer sale agreed on our sale OR a purchase, due to much messing, so have been accommodating viewings of our own house and going to some ourselves. Definitely feels like the market has jumped a good 10% since we first started looking in March, and I don't think I'm exaggerating with that. May not be a time to trade up.

                            Hope all is going well in your search Hitch.

                                  Maybe we should take the lootz and set up an IPB community down the sticks.

                                      Ah lads, these house price posts are utterly depressing.

                                      I'm in a somewhat unique situation whereby I own and pay a mortgage on a house that I don't live in or rent out & I also pay rent in a place I do live.

                                      Mrs Lao Lao wants to move from the rental (in fairness, it is now too small for us) but also doesn't want to move to the property I own and instead wants to stay close(ish) to where we now rent.

                                      I think it is just madness to even think about buying now, prices are just through the roof and there is zero value out there.

                                        Prices definitely not that far off peak tiger for some properties... The thing is, AFAIK in Ireland, even with this panic, our house price increases are actually below those in many other Western countries!

                                                Fuck it, in for a penny in for a pound.

                                                Marxism is the first attempt to find such a synthesis (Marx was a student of Hegel via Bruno Bauer) . His solution was that people are not essentially good, but that if the right material conditions were created, that they would become good. There's two problems with this - firstly it's still a Rousseauian solution, and second it divides the entire world up into people who are on board with Marxism and people who need reeducating.

                                                Dostoyevski deftly dismissed Rousseau with a flick of his pen:

                                                Shower on him every blessing, drown him in a sea of happiness, give him economic prosperity such that he should have nothing else to do but sleep, eat cakes, and busy himself with the continuation of the species, and even then, out of sheer ingratitude, sheer spite, man would play you some nasty trick.
                                                This btw is the plot of the popular Hollywood animated movie "Wall-E". A rogue AI destroys fully-automated luxury space communism because it believes mankind deserves to be challenged.


                                                Fascism could then be described as a Hobbesian solution in contrast to Marxism, and nobody needs explaining why that went bad. One could then argue that neoliberalism is the third attempt to resolve the dichotomy, has been tremendously successful, but it's inherently unsustainable and now we're living through it's failure and collapse - to be replaced by something better??

A/C in the car for the commute and A/C in a small private office (thanks to the boss not commuting these days). Back home the housing estate is being extended and it's a constant drone of construction noise under 70m away. Close the windows and roast, open the windows and noise-cancelling headphones almost provide some cover.

                                                        With regard to house prices, a lot of people seem to assume the prices will come down. I'm sure that the rate of change will come down, but I've not convinced the actual price of houses is likely to fall any time soon. As Paul mentions this is a global phenomena.

                                                          ***

                                                          You're a contestant of a game show! There are 10 closed doors: 9 lead to nothing and 1 leads to an expensive car. You are allowed to pick a door and earn the car if it's behind the door you choose.

                                                          Stage 1: You choose a door.

                                                          Stage 2: The host tells you to choose from two helpful options:

                                                          Option 1: Open Five doors!

                                                          You choose four more doors in addition to the one you've already selected and open all 5. You win the car if it is behind any of the five doors you choose to open.

                                                          Option 2: The host eliminates 8 red herrings!

                                                          The host will open 8 empty doors that are not the door you chose initially that do not contain the car. This leaves two doors closed: your initial choice and one other door -- the car is definitely behind one of them. You can then choose to either open the original door you chose in stage 1 or open the only other remaining closed door.

                                                          What should you do to maximize your chances of winning the car?

                                                                You're a contestant of a game show! There are 10 closed doors: 9 lead to nothing and 1 leads to an expensive car. You are allowed to pick a door and earn the car if it's behind the door you choose.

                                                                Stage 1: You choose a door.

                                                                Option 1: Open Five doors!

                                                                You choose four more doors in addition to the one you've already selected and open all 5. You win the car if it is behind any of the five doors you choose to open.

                                                                Option 2: The host eliminates 8 red herrings!

                                                                The host will open 8 empty doors that are not the door you chose initially that do not contain the car. This leaves two doors closed: your initial choice and one other door -- the car is definitely behind one of them. You can then choose to either open the original door you chose in stage 1 or open the only other remaining closed door.

                                                                What should you do to maximize your chances of winning the car?

                                                                          And if your opinion is that the line that they took was shit. Surely you have some idea of a middle ground that would have been better than those two bookends?

                                                                          ​​​​​​I don't think I ever made any claim that I did. I posted a piece which imo shines a light on a blind spot and glaring "that's unusual" part of this. I think the reaction, both my side /reactive / and responses equally so imo highlight what we already know. It's an emotive subject.

                                                                          Think this has dragged on a bit and I would find it tilting if some subject kept croping up every few days: let alone one as jading as this, so I won't be responding to anything else covidy. I think my train rolling down a hill mumbo jumbo is a fair snap of how I feel. Could well change.

                                                                          Re the Lord of fhe flies toddlers, yeah would prob end up in carange (once they were at an age where they have the capacity to walk/function etc). That to my mind would just be socialisation removing them from their natural state, a pretty horrifying anaology for what I think happens within society as it is and us all. Fwiw not saying I'm not in it, I am. I punt/ poker/ most days so I can swim every day wearing new googles made by some orphan in a sweat factory. I'm not sure if you can be anything other than a renunciant and be preachy about the world as it is, without being a total joke of a person. I increasingly dont recognise any of this as me though, more so just awareness looking at the Show of 'Sam' IPB tussles and all.

                                                                          Also think I'm tettering very perilously on the insufferable cunt axis, vegan crunk music and loafers with no socks etc so might not go balls deep on the philosophy debate either despite finding it very interesting as think the foundations of all these things are fucked as there is no 'self'

Pick option 2 of the dealers options, then swap door to give you a 90% chance. Sticking with the door you've chosen = 10% chance. Going with the host's option 1 is 50%.

I dont have any equipment but if it's just a dealer you want, I'd happily give you a price and see if you're happy with it.

                                                                                    Give me a PM with what you have in mind and I'll give you a price if you want.

I know my place and it's not forking out to be in a posh country kitchen scene. so I went to the spar and had a big tuna salad roll for lunch . It is rather pleasant out there though.

The plan was to get four of the 500 tickets that were up for sale you were supposed to be able to buy two, when I went on to book them it told me that I could only buy one and when my mates went on they couldn't get any. Looks like I may have snagged the last available one. Not as keen for going on my own but I probably head over.

                                                                                                  There is definitely better priced options out that way but west of the M50 would probably be a harder sell than north of the Liffey.

I'm sure that the rate of change will come down, but I've not convinced the actual price of houses is likely to fall any time soon. As Paul mentions this is a global phenomena.
                                                                                                  This is one thing that does worry me. There is no guarantee that prices will go down and even if the overall price of housing does drop, certain areas may hold onto their price better than others.

I suppose it is more important that Pat the Covid spreader and Strewelpeter have a nice day out than the needless suffering of the animals that are subjugated for their entertainment.

I guess it is another insight into the calibre of people involved in the industry. Anyone gambling on it or supporting it in any way needs to have a look at themselves.
