Re: Furloughed Workers

People are being dropped like a bad habit at our place, mostly being told today that tomorrow is their last day. I'm working on the basis that I'm likely in the same boat, though no "notice" (for what it'd be worth) nor any sniff of the promised contract-renewal as yet. On the potentially positive s...

Re: Long-Term Food

You're right that they're expensive for what they are but I wouldn't put them in the same category as a pot noodle. From what I understand the supermarket packet dried stuff is generally pretty heavily processed & often stuffed with salt etc. whereas my understanding of the Mountain House type food ...

Re: Long-Term Food

Their waiting list is months long. I’ve been dithering over ordering some for months, finally went to do so a couple of weeks ago & I can expect my shipment in early JUNE! Will still have it though (same manufacturer as Mountain House apparently)

Re: Lockdown?

I was invited to a meeting last Monday at work with about 13 other people, all the major players on the project I'm working on ATM. Got an email on Monday saying that 2 of the attendees of that meeting are "showing symptoms" so all have to self-isolate! Luckily I didn't actually attend the meeting i...

Re: 2020 Potential Economic Collapse

I can't help but wonder if the situation might be different this time around. Because just about EVERY country is having (or will have) the same financial meltdowns I wonder if "they" can vanish debt just the same way they can make money "appear" out of thin air? If it's 90% make-believe money anywa...

Re: 2020 Potential Economic Collapse

Re: 2020 Potential Economic Collapse

I know we are all focused on the C19 virus at the moment, rightly so, but please dont be distracted from the absolute carnage and meltdown that is going on in financial markets and global economies. If the virus wasn't happening this forum would have 20 topics and hundreds of posts on the subject, ...

Re: 2020 Potential Economic Collapse

Brent crude is now less than $27 a barrel. Wonder how much lower it can get and just what are the ramifications? Its now 7pm and oil (WTI) is just over $20 a barrel. If OPEC keep trying to teach Putin a lesson they will just collapse the global oil system. Its like watching a game of chicken. Who w...
