  1. The CEO-to-worker compensation ratio was 21-to-1 in 1965. It peaked at 366-to-1 in 2000. In 2020 the ratio was 351-to-1. This ratio is now far higher than at any point in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, or 1990s.* The people at the bottom of the shit heap have been penalised for the greed and incompetence of the wealthy through (how many years?) of austerity and are now being told things will get even worse. All while the rich continue to award themselves ever higher salaries, bonuses, stock options and other perks. All in it together, aye? Still, as long as the poor "just cut back on their expenditures” they’ll be fine. * This is for the USA but I can't imagine the numbers will be drastically different in the UK.
  2. Football: Man Utd, Man City, Chelsea, Celticrangers, USA (Men & Women) Murkan Football: Dallas Cowboys (Howk, spit), Arizona Cardinals Baseball: New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox Everything: England
  3. You're getting some great suggestions for activities here @Hoose Rice and I'll add another. When I was going through a very similar rough patch in early 2020, my sister sent me one of those colouring books for grown ups and a pack of cheapo coloured pencils. I was a bit sceptical at first but gave it a go and found it incredibly helpful. Meditative and relaxing. It also awakened a long dormant enthusiasm for art. I've been dabbling with water colours, pencils, charcoal and calligraphy. It's fair to say this isn't going to be a new career (I used to be quite good but my skills have deteriorated through lack of use) but I'm enjoying myself and that's really all that matters. And keep on with the regular updates here. You have a big support crew so don't be shy about using it.
  4. How about playing it on big screen TVs, in an endless loop in every office, meeting room, break room and cupboard at NRA headquarters? With sound. No option to turn it off. If any execs decide to “work from home”, they first have to agree to the big screen TVs being installed in every room in their house. Including those of their children. Call it “Freedom Television”
  5. That's my favourite response when Americans who have never eaten haggis, try to tell me how disgusting it is.
  6. After big Liz has read and replied to each one personally though, right?
  7. I wonder if the comments will be moderated.
  8. I like that one idea. The right wing are terrified of anything which sounds even a bit socialisty so let’s have the polis apply for grants and sponsorship to fund their activities. Or as in this case, lack of them.
  9. The one which simultaneously annoys / amuses me, is when you see Trumpers flying the fleg from the bed of their pick 'em ups. They see no disconnect in having a tattered, mud covered pink, grey and teal rag flapping in the rain as a demonstration of their love for Murka.
  10. Falkirk On the cusp of greatness. Just you wait and see. Carlisle United My local team growing up. (Only 47 miles away). Spent a few glorious days at the top of the old first division when I was 12. Paris FC Note: Not Paris SG. Looked to be comfortable for automatic promotion this year before Hibsing it. Still in a playoff spot but only by a bawhair. FC Kaiserslautern I have a mate who lives close by and their his team. As with Paris FC, were looking good for automatic promotion before going into a slump. The've lost their last three. Ajax Amsterdam The first foreign team to hit my radar as a lad. And who doesn't love a team named after a bathroom cleaning product?
