  1. Things The Lower Classes Do

    Park anywhere they like with no regard for rules or others Litter Make hospital visits in groups of more than 4
  2. Bitcoins

    It's back on the rise today, thank goodness. I'm not sure i'll be able to avoid the temptation to sell if it can get back to where it was 2 weeks ago. It's clearly a non-sensical bubble but that doesn't mean there aren't more opportunities to come.
  3. Things you shouldn't skimp on.

    Golf balls.
  4. Carillion enters liquidation.

    Totally unfair writing off of a large and sophisticated industry with lots of skilled and intelligent people involved. Undoubtedly there are some/many bad practises but we are not all snouts in the trough.
  5. The Investment Thread

    Cheers. It has genuinely totally transformed my view of money.
  6. Games of 2017

    I had a few months off work with sickness so I have played more this year than I have since I was in a student flat. My top 10 of games played (not necessarily 2017 releases are): 1. Overwatch - really cleverly constructed and so addictive 2. Last of Us - a masterpiece 3. Tropico 5 - a hidden gem. 4. Sniper Elite 3 5. Metal Gear 6. GTA V 7. PES 2018 8. FIFA 17
  7. The Investment Thread

    Is anyone else on etoro? It’s one of these high risk spread betting on derivatives things. The difference is that it is done as a social platform so you can basically follow the successful traders (rather than ploughing in in glorious ignorance). You basically copy the trades of the top dogs. I have not gone mad and have put in money I could afford to lose but after 6 months I must be circa 30% up. It’s quite good fun too. Worth a look.
  8. The Investment Thread

    After a recommendation from my bro, I read ‘How to own the world’ by a Scottish guy Andrew Craig. Total game changer and I would highly recommend a wee read at this if you are interested in making some investments regardless of your income.
  9. PES 2017

    Absolutely this. I have no disagreement that pes is more free flowing and I have stuck loyally by it for years. BUT there is no argument that fifas career mode is far stronger than ml and the licensing thing always means pes has to be a lot better than FIFA cause it does make a difference.
  10. PES 2017

    I could actually get the ball in the net playing FIFA! You are encouraging me to give pes another go.
  11. PES 2017

    I am a pes veteran but have really struggled to 'get' this years version. I actually ended up turning to the dark side and getting fifa. I found pes really really defensive and every game was a complete park the bus affair by cpu. Master league also needs a serious freshen up and that is the mode I exclusively play.
  12. Lego games

    I play Marvel Superheroes with my 5 year old. He absolutely loves it although I do get frustrated with the fiddly nature of some of the puzzles sometimes. I invariably find myself googling the solution when we have yet again reached a section where we are 'stuck'. He is oblivious and loves every second of it.
  13. Namedropping thread

    I work in the same building as where they film the show. I can confirm the sponsored car thing. Peter is a very nice guy, loads of time for everyone. Our car park provides an interesting game of 'spot the old firm dud' most days which is good.
  14. The Official President Trump thread

    Apparently in the last 10 days the mooch has taken the job, missed his wife giving birth (last Monday), his wife has now left him, and then today been fired. What a week!
