  1. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3786072/Bernie-Ecclestone-s-son-law-James-Stunt-shocked-police-raid-gold-bullion-firm.html Welcome @Alymac - Mr Stunt is also behind Fort Bullion and Stunt and Co, the link above is to the article of his raid last year Why have one gold business when you can have three ! Do you own due diligence but stick to a reliable tried and tested UK firm, in no particular order of favouritism, Atkinsons, Baird & Co (GOLDLINE), Chard, Hatton Garden Metals, Bullion By Post, TheGoldBullionco
  2. Perth Mint are on high alert ! One tonne is a bit too heavy to carry away in hand luggage
  3. Jeez what a heist in one swoop 100kg to move
  4. expect China factories to be on the case already with this - coming soon to an eBay near you
  5. I came across this article earlier today whilst doing some research and found it a little humorous, thought provoking and interesting so thought i would share it with you guys http://www.telegraph.co.uk/lifestyle/9700365/How-much-did-you-say-it-was.html The article is from 2012 so some of the numbers might be out in 2017 but you get the idea ............................................................................................................................................................................................. It was revealed that printer ink costs more than three times as much as Dom Pérignon champagne. A bottle of the luxury vintage bubbly retails for around £109, or 15p per millilitre. A set of replacement cartridges for a home printer costs £45, which works out at 51p per millilitre. It is possible to buy a perfectly adequate printer for £35, making it less valuable than the ink you fill it with. But are there other examples of everyday substances or services with astronomical price tags? And is there anything that can make printer ink, let alone vintage champagne, look cheap in comparison? ............................................................................................................................................................................................. Chanel No.5 is x79 times more expensive than Dom Pérignon champagne A 750ml bottle of Dom Pérignon is £109. A small 7.5ml bottle of Chanel No.5 costs £86 at Boots. A wine bottle’s-worth would therefore cost 100 times as much – £8,600 – for which you could buy 79 bottles of Dom Pérignon. ............................................................................................................................................................................................. Agent Provocateur knickers are 10 times more expensive than silver A size-two pair of Agent Provocateur knickers weighs a little under 10g (approx one-third of an ounce) and costs £70. The knickers comprise 525 sq cm of fabric, giving a cost per square metre of fabric of £1,333. Or, to put it another way, they’re almost 17 times more expensive than the priciest fabric currently on sale at John Lewis, the Ptolemy Mann and Bluebellgray ranges, at £80 per square metre. Valued by weight, the knickers cost £210 per ounce (£70 x 3), exactly 10 times the current £21-per-ounce price of silver. While they’re worth 10 times their own weight in silver, they’re just a fifth of their weight in gold. ............................................................................................................................................................................................. Viagra is almost seven times more expensive than gold They say that size doesn’t matter. But that doesn’t mean men won’t pay for it. Four 50mg tablets of Viagra cost £47 online at Lloyds Pharmacy, or £11.75 per tablet. There are 1,000mg in a gram, which is 20 x 50, so 1g of Viagra costs 20 x £11.75: £235. The current price of gold is £35 a gram. So Viagra is worth 6.7 times its own weight in gold. ............................................................................................................................................................................................. Cinema popcorn is more expensive than the finest fillet steak A small, 60g bag of popcorn costs £3.95 at a Cineworld cinema. That works out at £65.83 per kilo. The most expensive beef available on the Ocado website this weekend is the hand-prepared, muslin-wrapped Dry Aged Wing Rib of prime Aberdeen Angus beef, which costs £56.58 per kilo. It was possible to track down pricier meat. The Freedown Food company imports US prime grade, grain-fed fillet steaks, which work out at £65.57 per kilo. That’s an awful lot for a chunk of steak. But it’s still cheaper than cinema popcorn. ............................................................................................................................................................................................. It’s cheaper to fly from Gatwick Airport than park there It costs £13 a day to use the Gatwick long-stay facility, or £91 a week. Two people flying from Gatwick to Milan on easyJet could leave at 7am on Thursday December 13 (when, for some reason, seasonal prices are at their absolute lowest), return on the evening of Wednesday December 19, and pay a total of £83.20 for their tickets – £7.80 less than their parking charge for seven days. Or try this: you need to make a business trip to Milan and back. At 5.30am, you leave your car on the premium level of the short-stay car park. You dash to the easyJet flight, which costs £22.99 one way. It arrives in Milan at 09.55, you catch the 18.10 return flight (£18.61), and get back at 19.05. Having spent more than 12 hours away, you have to pay the full-day rate of £44 for your parking space – £2.40 more than the total cost of your flights. ............................................................................................................................................................................................. A year in prison costs more than three months’ at the Savoy It costs the government £47,000 a year to keep a criminal in prison. This weekend it was possible to book week-long stays at a bed-and-breakfast rate at the Savoy for £480 a night. Which means you could do a 97-day stretch in a Grand Deluxe King Room for the price of a 12-month sentence. ............................................................................................................................................................................................. Your hire suit for Royal Ascot will cost more than your tickets Moss Bros, the dress hire chain, charges £145 for a standard three days’ hire of a Royal Ascot suit – lightweight tailcoat worn with traditional striped trousers plus waistcoat, shirt, tie and handkerchief. Grandstand tickets for the first two days at next year’s Royal Ascot meeting are £52 each per day. So you could go on successive days, spend £40 on champagne and bets, and it would still cost less than the clothes you stand up in. The big take away fact i saw was £21oz ! for silver, those were the days
  6. I hope it works out for you getting the 2oz beast. But that is a chunky freeby, if it arrives for you. I have been gifted a FREE half oz of silver a few years back when I bought consistently from the same eBay seller over a few months.

  8. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1385426/Brazen-drug-dealer-Jimmy-pill-jailed-police-number-plate-personalised-nickname.html It just reminded me of this article of some daft drug dealer dude up my neck of the woods a few years back who got nabbed Who was known as Jimmy The Pill , so what do you do to be discrete about it, thats right, get a personalised number plate with JTP and add an acid smiley face to it His intellect and knowledge astounds
  9. it very well could be Danny
  10. A 'tenth' is also a popular drug slang term, so could get you unwanted plod interest
  11. this plate could also be of interest if you listed it over on bluelight forums
  12. it is death by x1,000 little weeny slow, daily, weekly, monthly, and annual, consistent cuts, YOU NEVER NOTICE - just shrug and moan, a little here and a little there. add something here, take a little more away there. It is happening not just in UK, all areas of the world are similar. .......................................................................................................................... I bought a tub of sandwich filler from Asda the other day and it barely filled one decently 'manly' baguette. Ten years back to same pot would do you two sandwiches and a jacket spud . It is now twice the price for something half the size - pardon my generalisation - 'shrinkflation' is real for every consumable we buy .......................................................................................................................... It used to be the case of you had the 'haves' and 'have nots' .......................................................................................................................... We are now being slowly eroded day by day to a collective of 'have nots' and 'have yachts' Everyone will be on the same level playing field as nobody realises it spreads a little by little, years after year. The blurring between a half decent middle class lifestyle and poverty is so much closer. A 37.5 hour FT 'blue collar' average working man/woman is not too far apart (£££) from Mr Doley who enjoys Jeremy Kyle, eats cheesy wotsits and watches porn as a hobby, once you take away all his expenses in life. RENT/MORTGAGE<COUNCIL TAX< NI<PERSONAL TAX< <CAR< INSURANCE<CREDIT CARD BILLS< LOAN< OVERDRAFTS<UTILITIES<MOBILE<BROADBAND<SKY/CABLE<KIDS<TRIPS<CLOTHES< comes from his take home pay yet The other who gets his main life costs from 'big daddy government' for sweet Felicity Arkwright .......................................................................................................................... Add to this the uncertainty of some big event, this fine balance could be destroyed when the fuel stops pumping, a bank holiday comes, truckers and tanker drivers go on strike, FTSE nose dives 30% overnight, the banks recall ALL overdrafts overnight, banks dont open, ATMs are empty, banks close their doors, food trucks dont deliver - Take your pick ................................................................................................................................ keep your bug out bag handy in the garage, because if something goes bad, QUICK Civilisation is only a few meals and twenty-four hours away from barbarism Signing off, forever your Forum Optimist & social commentor
