    Personally i would pay a few quid more for a better coin. You will find it much easier to sell a decent coin when the time comes.

    dicker reacted to Pete in UK Think Tank Wants Less Cattle to Save the Planet   
    Heard today on the mainstream news - and you cannot make this up - unbelievable !!
    Some quango think tank has suggested we reduce the cattle population and sheep population in the UK by up to 50% to prevent global warming.
    Plant trees instead they recommend.
    Are these tossers vegan ?
    I would like a steak or chop not a plate of leaves.
    We all know that farm animals let off a lot of gas ( less than some politicians these days ) and that does add to green-house gases which is of concern.
    However I am convinced that there will be, buried in some high rent offices in central London, a number of grossly overpaid consultants desperately wondering how to spend our taxpayers generous overseas aid budget. No doubt a few of them will have come up with a scheme to hand over millions to some remote farmers in Africa and South America to increase the size of their herds.

    dicker reacted to Bdean316 in Brexit No Deal - what are you doing to prepare for it?   
    So after this weeks shambles in Parliment the propbablity of leaving the EU with a no deal is a distinct possiblity and quite frankly would be better in the long term than our PM's proposed deal.
    With this in mind what will you be doing to prepare for the short term carnage that a no deal will bring........ Here's my list:
    1. Switch half of my cash holdings into a USD account
    2. Stockpile on my favourite EU foods and drink
    3. Maximise European silver purchases prior to March and increase gold holdings
    4. Get a shotgun licience
    One positive from this weeks developments in Parliament is that it gave my stack an increase in GBP value 🙂

    I fear labour getting in; they speak of a united front, but will screw up Brexit as best they can for political gain.

    Yay progress. David Davis and others are currently meeting with US officials to discuss a free trade agreement.

    dicker reacted to KDave in Brexit status ...   
    Good analysis here about what May and TPTB are doing with Brexit. I like his theory it fits what is happening despite what is being said by the various people including May. Look at what they do to work out their real intentions and goals. 
    It is true that should the UK leave and do well, it will be the end of the EU as the rest will jump ship. Even if we stay, the EU is finished eventually, tyranny never lasts.

    dicker reacted to KitboyE17 in Royal Mail “Progress”   
    And the Royal Mail wonders why it is losing customers hand over fist? I often work from home and will admit on those days I spend more time watching SKY Golf than actually working - however, what I have noticed of late is the number of courier deliveries that come down our street each and every day: Amazon, DPD and the likes. The number is staggering - sometimes I can count 7 or 8 multiple drops a day and there are only 18 houses in our street! All this is trade the Royal Mail has lost. Our postie comes once a day - delivers very little physical post nowadays anyway (usually just brochures and marketing matters) because pretty much all our regular correspondence is paperless. And if he does have a parcel (usually from one of you guys - thank you very much!) I'm invariably not at home and have to trudge down to the sorting office and queue to pick it up myself. All this self service in the post offices (and the supermarkets!) does not make our lives any easier - just theirs so they can cut down on head-count anyway.

    dicker reacted to Pete in Silver to Gold Ratio at ALL TIME HIGH TODAY - 84.72 : 1   
    Silver was going to the moon a few years ago and peaked around £30 / oz not even leaving the Earth's atmosphere.
    The Au/Ag ratio would suggest silver is far too cheap so i would be doing the opposite and buying silver right now.
  11. Thanks
    dicker reacted to sixgun in Silver to Gold Ratio at ALL TIME HIGH TODAY - 84.72 : 1   
    These are paper prices and paper ratios. Certainly in the UK we can't get silver at these ratios. The more extreme the prices the more difficult it is to actually buy physical in the real world at those numbers.

    That could be quite good.
    There are probably a few forum members that could throw a coin in whilst they are disposing of a body.

    Snowflakes grind my gears - some utter twat on good morning Britain trying to say that all working animals should be banned including guide dogs because they cant "consent" 
    So unbelievably stupid.

    dicker reacted to Lowlow in Synthetic Gold Short Bubble Now Bursting   
    Federal Reserve Notes and Precious Metals both run on faith.  They share a lot of characteristics except that Precious Metals are limited in supply by reality and human industriousness, whereas FRN's are limited by the Federal Reserve.
    That said ... I'd prefer the money with a 3000 year history, not the one that has been around for 104 years, that replaced a series of failed currencies, including the Continental, and has lost over 99% of its value since it was issued.
