    Not sure things are going quite as well as they had been and with the weather coming in it’s pretty much becoming First World War trenches but with much better artillery. Suits the side with more guys and less of a problem with getting them killed.
    Actually, it suits the side with better artillery systems (Ukraine), better manoeuvrabilty (Ukraine) and better leadership (Ukraine). Russia will continue losing all through the winter. And through the spring.

          Pretty sure Mellor was looking for context, in the sense of who the fuck is the 'Liver King'. I'd only seen him in the last three months. We're all on our own personalised algorithms.

                Hopefully your right and I am not using any real data to back my thoughts up.

                To me it comes down to can Russia can replace untrained meat shields 5 times quicker than Ukraine can replace well trained troops.

                In terms of the artillery as you said mobility of Ukrainian artillery is a big factor not just the range. If the lines become static than the chances of Russia finding it increases.

                Again Ukraine have much better stuff but each loss costs a lot more.

                Currently both sides are in frozen trenches, tanks buried in mud and with artillery firing near constantly fighting over a pile of rubble. It’s the war Russia wants not Ukraine till spring as far as I can see.

                Again hope your right tho.

                    One thing is sure - it's Ukraine that has all the momentum, and, based on past form, whatever they do next will likely surprise everyone (Russians especially). Before yesterday, I don't think anyone expected them to be striking targets hundreds of km inside RuSSia. Some areas of the front are indeed static, especially those that were frontlines before Feb but others are not.

                    The ground will be frozen solid soon too which should increase the scope for mobile attacks.

                            Whatever about culture and tradition, the Brazilians are very cringe when they score a goal these days. It’s like the anti-Haka. If I were playing against a team doing that I’d slide tackle the lot of them hoping for a domino effect samba collapse. Why are players booked for taking off their shirt? Excessive celebration? This is way worse. What’s worse is it takes the camera man away from the crowd celebrating and THIS is where we wanna see some big hipped samba moves. (females of course- cough cough)

                              Ah yes, that moment when you realise someone is actually insane but just very adept at hiding it. I remember Denny writing a really good depiction of being in the same scenario a few years back and can empathise now.

                                        Nearly died yesterday. Think it was a sign. Not a believer in any god, but something is telling me to slow down.


                                        Driving home from Phoenix, its a good 23 hours drive and I got a tad aggressive breaking it into two stops but I’ve been working my ass off in Phoenix and wanted to get back home into a routine and get settled before I head back to Ireland for Christmas.The plan was Phoenix to small town Idaho, sleep in a motel, then on to Calg. Did 12 hours on Sunday and got to Idaho around 7 and fell asleep in Idaho around 9.

                                        Woke up at 3am so decided to bounce and get an early start, weather looked fine on Google. (google let down number 1). Google sent me a "shorter route has been found" message, sick says I - big fan of shorter (google let down number 2)

                                        Sent into the Caribou Targhee National Forest - could not have been more snow, nor less ploughing, nor more incline. It was so incredibly remote. It was also 4am by now. I honestly thought about turning back but had 10 hours of driving ahead of me and couldn't stomach it.

                                        Anyway tipping along legitimately going well under the speed limit (which was illogically high) prob going 90km. No lights, big trees either side of me, dark dark dark.

                                        I was listening to Jimmy Carr on the Diary of a CEO podcast, good listen for anyone who hasn't heard, and I caught a small bit of the snowbank on the passenger side. If you haven't driven in places where the snow is piled to the side of the road well when you nip it, it drags you in. So you need to slowly correct to get out or risk a spin.

                                        It's dragging me in more and more and I'm losing control. Doggo in the back in her crate not enjoying the bumpiness. I am easing on breaks to not lock up, but no dice, I've definitely lost it.

                                        I'm in a 4runner, beast of a yoke, but no match for this. I lost it, an am spinning out, and then BANG I hit something I think it was a bollard or a rock but it was so hard that I nearly flipped, the car was at a 45 degree angle, I can remember it vividly, the side airbags deploy with a massive bang, probably louder than the collision, which seems a design flaw, and I stop. Check to see if dog is ok, she's grand. Panicking a bit, but pack passport and dogs rabies cert into my travel pack.


                                        That all happened in the space of 5 seconds I’d say. Probably took you longer to read it.


                                        Try to open door, no dice, almost waist deep in snow.

                                        I climb out the window, am now waist deep in snow and wade back to road. Nothing. The darkness and silence is hard to describe. No moonlight or starlight because of trees, no noise because of the snow dampening it. I am royally fucked. I can hear my muffled engine noise though. I wade back to car.

                                        Still running and the heat is still working so I wonder if I can move it. Wheels are spinning, no audible issues so far with engine, or axle or whatnot. Just stuck. Dog whining.

                                        Call 911, tell them where I am, they know the exact mile marker (go on Google ya good thing). Ambulance is on the way. Sit tight she says. No bother. Thoughts turn to wtf am I gonna do with no car in rural Idaho on my own with a 2 year old German Shepherd. I am going to spend money, that’s what. Lots of it.



                                        I see some lights in my rearview, that person just drives on. Sound.

                                        About 10 mins later more lights, I hope out and back to road, it’s two dudes in a big pickup truck, “Need help?” “Fuck boys, do I ever”. “What part of Nova Scotia are ya from?” I am not in Kansas now Toto.

                                        The bucks are deadly, they pull it out no bother and I thank them and they are on there way.

                                        Beast of a yoke isn’t in bad shape, front right panelling is fooked, the strut or axle is definitely bent but its very very drivable. Just no faster than 80kmph or I get the major speed wobbles. Air bags moonlight as curtains so I need to take care of that. I drive it for a bit and pull into a fishing tackle shop (where the fuck am I) that has a light outside. I’ve got some gorilla tape in the boot so I use that to tape up the airbags til I can get somewhere more convenient and stuff them back into roof.

                                        I legitimately limp back from Idaho to Calg at 80km. Took me about 10 hours. Once daylight broke though… the vistas and scenery were unreal. And I got more time to enjoy them on account of the snail pace. Idaho and Montana off the highways… incredible.

                                        I am unbelievably lucky the crash was where it was because the rest of that road was ravines and bridges and rock walls and other things not nearly as forgiving as meters deep snow. It’s unreal how I didn’t roll, the violence of the collision has me still rattled.

                                        Am home in Calgary now, -23celsius, working on couch on an app I love, with a dog I love and am alive.

                                        Perspective is a funny thing. Slow down Stevie.


                                        TLDR: NovaScotian nearly dies, writes bs reflective story, back to cosy white person life now.

                                            Reason 13,963 of why banks are my absolute pet peeve.

                                            Decided to lock in my mortgage at a fixed rate of 2.75% for 3 years. My mortgage is over three loans, the main loan and two smaller loans where I topped up the mortgage to do work on the house on two separate occasions. As such, I had to complete 3 different forms which I duly did and sent them off to the bank head office as instructed to do by my local branch.

                                            Waiting quite a while to get any response and was about to contact them when I got two letters in the post to confirm that the two smaller loans had been switched to the fixed rate. Nothing on the main loan though. Now, when they send out my end of year balance, there is often a gap between when each of the statements arrive (don't ask me why) so I said I'd wait a few days in case this was something weirdly similar.

                                            Fast forward a few days and nothing else has arrived so I contact my local branch only to get a very firm, "nothing to us mate, you need to talk to head office - It was you who sent them there" response. When I politely explained to them that I was told by the branch to do so and who exactly would I contact in the head office, their tone softened to 'Well, maybe we could check on that for you'

                                            Several days later, I get a call from the local branch. There had been a full investigation no less and only two forms were sent in not three. I could resend the third form again but the fixed rates had now gone up so the previous rate was no longer available.

                                            It pains me to say this but I had to explain to them that it makes no sense for somebody to send in forms and to not lock in the largest loan on a fixed rate when interest rates are only going one way and that I had definitely sent all three forms.

                                            Again, the response was 'Nothing to do with us, we can't do anything about those Head Office lads'

                                            So I channelled my inner Karen and told them that under no circumstances would I be paying a higher interest rate and I would like to know the process for making a complaint. I was told they'd check it for me.

                                            TEN minutes later, I got another call. They had checked with head office again and the third form was there. They had found it. It had been mislaid, not scanned in with the other two forms. The initial investigation didn't find it. All three loans would be at the same fixed rate and a letter would be out to me shortly to confirm.

Glad to hear that there was no lasting damage other than to your wits (which got scared out of you). Great to be able to tell the nice tale and that be the end of it.

                                                                    Had a former customer, Chinese lad who has a take away, rang me today about a recent bill.
                                                                    He was in a contract up to the end of Sept 22 for gas @ a reasonable rate of 2.8C per unit He was then unbeknownst to him put into a new contract by the energy company on 1st Oct @ 19.78C (7 times higher @ 30,000 units so goes from circa 800 bill and change to 6,000 bill)
                                                                    He rang them and was told "we sent you a letter' sorry you're in a contract.
                                                                    One of those opt out letters these fuckers send. You know the type I mean where they give you a certain amount of time to opt out. I also know that they back date these latters so that if you are lucky enough to actually receive it you have fuck all time to do anything. And they don't register them either.

                                                                    Absolute fucking scumbags done with full knowledge and aforethought without a scree of care for the consequences.
                                                                    And the CRU are fuck all use. Had a complaint in with them before about these letters and they sided with the energy company.

                                                                    The out of contract rate AKA the standard variable rate at that point in time was 7.25C or so which then went to 11.6C in mid October so massive difference.

                                                                    I would love to see him create a stink a with radio show and bring the whole disgusting business to light. Embarrass the fuckers.
                                                                    Other than that it's set up a new company and tell them to FO

                                                                    Poor bastard was genuinely worried about his business.

                                                                    I texted him a link there to the Govt scheme to claim 40% back on the difference so he was happy with that.

He tells me he's sick of watching them lose so he's recorded it and will watch it 'when' they win. It's not like its not important to him, he follows football and his eldest plays with Bohs.

Think gas reserves in storage facilities are good so that probably will calm things for a few months but contracts involve hedging so they will be pricing in future volatility. Don't know enough about how all that forward pricing works Vis a Vis your day to day spot trading.

                                                                            Putin can still cause more mischief by turning off the taps on the pipeline running through Ukraine. It will be interesting to see what happens after Xmas.

                                                                                                            Woke up this morning to see the youngest scrolling over a print-out of some instructions on how to solve rubik cubes and the elder one catching a few pages of her book before school. Evenings spent playing games together. Not a word of complaint from anyone. Except maybe the wife who kept leaving the room, presumably to surreptitiously check her phone, until we confiscated it in the interest of good fun.

                                                                                                            Its almost like - they don't actually want to be spending all that time on the electronics, but do so as its the easiest option that requires least effort.

                                                                                                            A wee bit of an eye-opener.

Do you think he will run as an independent when he doesn't get the nomination? Knowing him he would do it out of spite just to sabotage them.

                                                                                                                        Woke up this morning to see the youngest scrolling over a print-out of some instructions on how to solve rubik cubes and the elder one catching a few pages of her book before school. Evenings spent playing games together. Not a word of complaint from anyone. Except maybe the wife who kept leaving the room, presumably to surreptitiously check her phone, until we confiscated it in the interest of good fun.

                                                                                                                        Its almost like - they don't actually want to be spending all that time on the electronics, but do so as its the easiest option that requires least effort.

                                                                                                                        A wee bit of an eye-opener.
