The Biden Presidency

Don't be harsh. Not everyone has the same profile the average ARRSEr, i.e. a multi-millionaire. :rolleyes:

Oh hell I wish. Believe me when I tell you I know what it is to be poor mate. When herself was going through her residency training I'd pull a double shift a couple of times a week and take any overtime going. Herself also had a job in the evening after her classes, she worked in one of the local hospitals three nights a week and the other nights and full weekends were spent studying.

Still had to make money for the rent and pay the bills, there wasn't any students loans available back then and I'm kinda glad about that as well. She borrowed the money from her Dad and we scrimped and scraped to pay him back in the shortest time possible, he had every cent back within two years.

I'm just teasing young Jonesy, he's from Wyoming so it really is needed.
 
I love a good rummage around a flea market / garage / car boot sale. You never know what you'll find! I was brought up on them by my dad.

I also donate a lot of stuff that I no longer need - we have sites like Freecycle that let you give/take stuff. Got rid of a Hoover today - it was still working, and would be a waste to chuck it away so I'm glad someone could get some use from it.

@Steamboat - Not going to the local McDonalds any time soon; can I count a cup of instant as the exchanged brew instead?
As long as it is not Dunkin Donuts.
Folgers only!
The Salvation Army or the Goodwill is our go to. But yes you can find some cool stuff at garage sales or flea markets.

Hey herself goes to the resale shops as well, she's got plenty of clothes from them. Have to admit I like looking around some resale shops and pawn shops when I'm out on my own.
 
@Steamboat Hey sorry kid, looking back I've gone rather overboard extracting the urine from you. I'll give it a rest man.
 
I can’t use it remotely, I might manage to deposit it into the bank if I find the right kind of cash point
Nobody wants to be paid cash, I don’t want to give anyone cash
Pre - Covid I only used paper money in fields at festivals & shows or as emergency pocket money

I have cash because I buy people’s shopping for them, and occasionally have been paid back in cash
Its just going to sit in my wallet
What did you use when all the ATM's crashed a few years back?
 
Follow the reflection.



Really? That's what you think is evidence? Do you think if they were faking it they would be so bad at it?

It's almost very likely to be the additional lighting brought in by the camera crews as explained to you upthread.

But no, what you think is your slam dunk killer evidence is some internet warrior who hasn't a clue what they're looking at.

Do you know what evidence is?

How about verified scripts, memos, email trails from the organisers, an actual plan of how this is all being arranged, or is this great plan all by word of mouth? No? Don't have it? No surprise there then.

This is the same sort of cr@p spouted about fake moon landings, 9/11, Sandyhook, pizzagate, etc., The number of people that would have been needed to be involved and the extent of planning to pull off these hoaxes and not one single iota of evidence or someone credible spilling the beans.

Conspiraloons seem to live in a world where they think they can work out and see through the conspiracy. But no, it's just them misunderstanding every day normal actions and events, either through ignorance or intentionally, with some cherry picking minor details adding 2 + 2 and ending up with 4 million.

So please provide hard evidence, not some misguided youtube expert. If Trump is in on it, where's the trail showing he's been in on the planning.
 
I prefer online shopping for browsing the porn stuff. 8-O

One never knows what you can find. I hit the jacket pot at Marv’s when some guy was selling ammo at the shop for cheaper than the stores but he was making a decent profit.

Local CoOp was cash only this afternoon, in my ten minutes queuing (self service was on the fritz) 3 big piles of shopping put to one side with a promise to return as soon as they could.

I use a small car jack that I bought from a resale shop for sighting in scopes on my AR's. I also picked up a nice little compressor for 20 bucks and some really neat tools going cheap as well because the woman behind the counter didn't know they were top of the line tools and didn't price them accordingly.

Which is why I always keep a reserve of cash. Notes are accepted everywhere. Cards get blocked for various reasons, things electronic crash at times.

I always have what I call gas/petrol money in my wallet just in case.
 
You can get some good bargains in thrift shops in the US.

My wife and daughters were always going into them and buying weird stuff.

I went into one with them in San Diego once. Got a pair of Florsheim Imperials in mint condition for $10. Almost as good as British shoes.

The hipster dude behind the till said they were the last of about eight different pairs they had been given.

I was gutted.
 
A habit I picked up many years ago, when I couldn't be sure of having enough petrol money for the month otherwise.

From town to our home is about 50 miles one way, about half way in either direction is petrol station that has been run by the same family since the 1930's. The guy that owns it is cash only, he doesn't have a card reader or an ATM and he still seems to do very well out of it.

I always keep enough cash for a full tank (a habit from when I could never be sure I'd have enough to see the end of the month, various reasons ...) and always a 1/4 tank in the car minimum (enough for 3 trips to/from work) - a hang over from being on call - enough always to get to work and back twice at stupid o clock and still enough to get to work the next day and then refuel.
