America - its all a bit odd...

Morris dancing is a lot weirder than shooting people. People being perforated is a worldwide phenomenon but Morris Men are a particularly special breed.

This is where some form of market regulation helps...

sssshhhh- SOCIALISM!

( or common sense - take your pick...)

The Lancre Black-face Side dancing The Other Dance ? <shudder>

Performed in complete silence - with octiron bells that absorb ambient sound.....
 
Gaming PC, iced coffee is for jessies and red wine... ;-)

BTW I love the modern world. No more ice on the inside of my bedroom window, the world's knowledge at my fingertips, opportunities that the 18 year old me would find unbelievable.
Gaming computers are an expensive rabbit hole. That is quite a chink of money for something that will obsolete in 5 years time.

Only the same as consoles though with each generation lasting around five years before you have to buy a new one. Plus in recent years people are spending a fortune on the latest ultra HD 4k TV to play the latest consoles on, probably comes in around the same price as a decent PC!

You would keep a gaming pc for 5 years? You pauper.
 
I don't have a gaming pc, but the Xbox one I have is almost six years old. Lots of other things to spend money besides electronics that have a short life.
I would have thought that the cost of the hardware would pale into insignificance relative to the electricity needed to run it.
:razz:

I can get the console or will be able to at some point for about 600, and get a tv to play it on for about 4-5 hundred. So 1/3 of the price and I have money left over for savings and a few other things.

Texas has suffered much worse in the past. Have a butchers at this:


Admittedly more localised than the state wide freeze but a hell of a lot more deadly and destructive.
Well here is another Texas disaster:

Maybe in Texas...


My gas and electric bill is $129.00 a month with the budget billing service from Black Hills energy.



But they do take the current ongoing events seriously, and try not to pull a Texas. Planning and preparation makes life much easier and winter is not exactly a random event. Every year we deal with it and every year we get extreme cold from the polar vortex.
 
What I said a while ago about the biggest bunch of lying, thieving, cheating, wife beating, murdering christians I have ever met applies.
They are a major embarrassment.
When I started my Theology Degree I intended to go on to seek ordination. Independent pastors/ministers in the Welsh Valleys are not known for their material wealth, and that was fine by me. If (as was likely) my congregation was small and not affluent, I still had my RGN to support myself.
This admission cost me the very best girlfriend I ever (though briefly) had. ("Love's all very well, but there's got to be money", she said).
Some time before I graduated, I decided that I could not show the example of life that I would expect of a minister, so I gave up where others brazenly went ahead.
I know that I wouldn't have turned out like a number of clergy whom I have met, and would have spent time in self examination to be sure of that, but I found this out too late.
Naive idiot that I was.

'Human' is the word you're looking for: Not 'Perfect'.

One of my four rules of life is: 'Everybody is odd in their own idiosyncratic way.' If you think you can beat nature, good luck with that!
 
Half a million dead in America from coronavirus now


Around 1 in 700 then.

Wonder what the figures for heart disease, cancer and so on in that time show?
 
From 2019, it’s close.
