  1. The Vent - No Chat!

    Whatever it was, it gave a whole new meaning to the word Butthurt.
  2. Ways to lower your rent in Germany

    Please don't cross post. It is against the rulz.
  3. Why are you unhappy today?

    My son's cat had the kidney problem for a long time. The last 2 yrs. she was also dribbling around the house but they just couldn't let her go. She wouldn't drink water either so I ordered them this little cat fountain that also filtered the water from Amazon. She loved it and drank again. Sadly, Tiger had to be put down this year when she appeared to be suffering. The vet said that cats are great actors and it's hard to tell.
  4. Forgive me for being a little behind here but the first thing I thought when I heard that Trump wanted to by Greenland was, "With what money?" With the current bazillion dollar debt and not even decent health care for its own people. Greenland is doing just fine, thank you. Who would want what the U.S. has to offer?
  5. The Vent - No Chat!

    Sat on a bee first thing this morning when I came out into the cockpit. My arse is still on fire. Great way to start the day.   Nudity can be dangerous.
  6. I'm with Zwiebel on this. Run fast and far.    I do money transfers with Forex UK but that is only one part of their business. This sounds fishy.   Just my gut feeling.
  7. Sometimes the CEO buying some shares can be a sign of desperation and a tactic to get others to invest. 3 mil is peanuts to him after all. I hope I'm wrong. GE is sentimental to me for certain reasons and that is one of the worst reasons to hang on/keep buying a stock.   Individual stocks are just a part of my portfolio. Diversity rules.   Let's see what happens next week.
  8. Politics Gen XYZ

      I'm pretty sure that is what's happening in the U.S. People can no longer depend on Social Security because it is just a top up but many don't realize this. The vast majority of jobs have no pension plan. People really do need to save/invest for their own pensions but many can't afford it.
  9. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

    So sorry to hear that, Keefy. You have been missed.
  10. Farmhouse renovations..

    Sounds like a 20 penny nail in the U.S.   Looking good. The landing came out nicely.
  11. Anderson Cooper called out President Donald Trump on Thursday for apparently breaching the Constitution when he urged a foreign government to punish members of Congress who had been critical of him. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu decided to bar Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) from entering Israel in retaliation for their support of the pro-Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. Netanyahu took the action following “intense pressure” from Trump, The New York Times reported, and shortly after the president appeared to flaunt his influence in a tweet:   72.4K people are talking about this   “The president and the courts have a sworn duty to not interfere with duly elected lawmakers going about their jobs,” Cooper said. “Which, today, it seems the president did — with a foreign government’s help, no less.” “This is certainly not normal,” Cooper added. “Except abnormal is kind of now normal.”
