    Don't worry, son. As you get older life has a way of going up in price faster than your disposible income.

    Firstly, well done team England! 😀
    Hoping this does not sound too loopey, but maybe check out the Minimalism film (available e.g., on Netflix) https://minimalismfilm.com/watch/
    It's not for the unicorns s*itting rainbows, it's just for the understanding how we're daily being goaded to spend. It may be easier to avoid temptations to spend when you see how we're constantly being manipulated to consume. Minimalism is not about giving up on everything you own and starting to smell like a hippie, it's more about giving up those things that do not bring you happiness.
    Sounds to me you're looking for a purpose in life. Maybe you'll find it in soccer coaching kids, maybe it's in getting more physically active around the house (you know, cleaning the gutters, trimming the hedges, organising the garage... whatever makes your dwelling look smarter and as a bonus, gets a seal of approval from the parents)....? The sad truth is that most of us are not that important for this planet to keep moving on it's orbit. But what can bring purpose to life is having meaningful relationships and contribute positively to those immediately around you.
    Next, check out the vast resources e.g., on Mr Money Moustache, Barefoot Investor etc FIRE's... financially independent, retired early bloggers for ideas to invest your hard earned and saved. FInancial independence is a fantastic goal & purpose to have - once achieved, you can (and probably should) keep working but don't have to. You've got this - good luck!

    Pipers got a reaction from Cornishfarmer in Brexit means Brexit   
    In the UK we are not quite slaves but when we are born a bond is taken out on us!  We are  subjects of the country. 
    It is true the Tories have done nothing to take us out of the EU, there is evidence or lack of evidence everywhere, no new Docks/Ports no new warehousing no new roads no new air ports for goods plus warehousing!  I would say any Government if it had any expectations of needing any of the above would start to build them!! Preparing the Country for a new future needs planning and building the Tories have played their cards in the open the EU knows the UK will not be ready to go it alone even if it wanted to.  They really could not give a sh-t about the population the political class that is. 
    I voted leave because the way the EU treated Ireland Spain Portugal Greece and Cyprus. It looks now it has treated the UK like SH-T and the TORIES have bent over and kissed the EUs feet

    If your not happy with sterlings low when buying precious metals, then you can simply open a brokerage account and buy a very small quantity of gbp/usd at the same time as buying your precious metals and you will make up the loss when the gbp recovers, thats what i do 😉

    Pipers got a reaction from kimchi in Social Media Warning!!!   
    Yes Kimchi, IMO your views are not extreme.  I myself believe they are trawling every bit of information out of everyone inc maps, emails what time of day you get up go to bed  etc.  The Vogs are interesting because he is confident the information gathered will be used to replace humans in the workforce etc.  
    He also noticed the reaction times, being a negative reaction more responsive than a positive one eg the Arab Spring turning into the Muslim Brotherhood etc.  All of this will be used against a population.

    Jaron lanier  has been going around recently pumping his book advising people not to use social media.  At first i thought he was just after publicity now i am not sure.  He certainly is well placed within the industry to back up his claims and he makes his living from the silicon valley corporations.  Anyway watch the video if it is to long there are other on youtube that are shorter.  
    I have found the Channel 4 interview its a bit shorter

    On the contrary. One look at silver bullion sales will tell you that stackers are a much rarer breed now than at any time in the last 5 years.

    As far a coinage goes the 'spoils of war' mean the victors get to loot and tell history, coinage will come under that.  I do not collect nazi items or in this instance German coinage at that time.  Do not feel bad about owning coinage, it's what you think say and your actions that matter not a coin.

    Pipers got a reaction from Paul in Working for Nothing - Modern Day Slavery Act 2015 - Asda   
    You may be on to something here Paul, ASDA will either pay you or not, if they pay you they are admitting you are responsible for putting the items through the checkout, if they don't payout they leave it open for a defence that as long a a person puts the item across the scanner they are not responsible if it does not scan, because the person is not trained is doing unpaid voluntary work.  I watched  a very upset woman the other month being accused of stealing when it turned out she had only put items through incorrectly.  Tesco's then took the items off her though she was that upset she returned all her shopping which was quite funny because they don't take back uncooked meat they did that time when she started crying  and saying how she had never been so embarrassed in all of her life and she will never shop at Tesco ever again.

    Thank you for your feedback.
    Our answer may not appease everyone on the forum but we have been selling secondary market bullion sovereigns this way for over 50 years. However, we are aware that as transactions have moved from ordering over the telephone where we can advise the customer before they place their order - to online transactions, we may have diluted our process. Secondary market bullion sovereigns are our cheapest investment sovereigns which may not always be available for immediate dispatch. We have updated our website to clearly inform whether your order is available for immediate dispatch. If you order more sovereigns than that are currently in stock, you are informed during checkout that these coins will be sourced on the secondary market. You are also updated on a regular basis as to the current status of your order. 
    This process offers customers the opportunity to fix the price when the live gold price suits their requirements. If customers could only order when the secondary market sovereigns are in stock, they may miss out on a low gold price. Whether gold goes up or down, we honour the price that the gold was fixed at. If at any time a customer wishes to sell the coins we will buy them back at the current live price.
     
    In this instance, the reason for the delay is due to a very large order which we are fulfilling. This has resulted in a backlog of orders sitting behind it, some of which are small quantities. We would not normally use this as an excuse as all of our customers are important and would not like to deem one to be favoured more than another. Whilst we are currently paying 100% for bullion sovereigns, there has been a slow down on customers selling sovereigns to us in the last couple of months, although this could change at any time. We have been established for over 50 years and have huge resources of bullion and collectable coins. We believe in owning physical bullion as the most secure way to protect your wealth which is why we have over 5,000 bullion products available for immediate dispatch and you are welcome to visit our showroom without an appointment. 
    We are continuously reviewing our processes and appreciate the comments here as they help us to improve our service to you.
    If you have read the above and you still have further questions, please call us on 01253 343081 and we will be happy to answer them.
