My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

I know, I'd expect that sort of reaction from others but not from a close family member, especially the way she'd been talking about my cousin and him not wanting surgery or being an *albartroth* about taking antibiotics because he's in the church of bad science fiction

Today I have been directly negatively affected by Brexit for the first time.

 

My lease on the Skoday Citigo is coming up so I went down to the dealership to see what I can do.

 

Due to the *albartroth* falling out of the used car market I am in negative equity on the car (only by a couple of hundred quid but still).

 

That can be partly attributed to Brexit.

 

What can be directly attributed to Brexit though is the fact that Skoda no longer offers 0% finance on any cars.

 

So, to get the same car with the same deposit as last time would now cost £178 a month, I am currently paying £91.

 

Costs nearly doubling due to Brexit?  That is a kick in the balls.

 

On the plus side, it looks like I am keeping the car now so the GPS unit I got for Xmas is going to be appreciated for longer.

It's not due to Brexit as such, but it *is* due to the uncertainty and scaremongering that's going on and will continue to carry on until the actual negotiations are completed.

The lease rates are bad at the moment. I have a car for work, 3 year lease due for renewal this year. Have been looking at replacements and the same car is much more expensive. Across the board, cars of a similar spec are about £70 to £100 per month more expensive.

 

Couple that with the changes to dividend taxes and Im about £2k down already compared to last year :(

Just wasted an hour and a half or so of my life watching Dorian Grey.. I love The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen so was hoping this would be pretty good.. No. Absolute *suitcase*. Total *badger*s.

Got banned on Facebook over a typo in a two-week-old post.

While the neo-nazis run rampant despite people reporting their clearly objectionable posts and comments.

I don't even deal with Facebook anymore. It's really only a place for women to show off their bodies for the likes and men overpost sports memes. Hardly a substitute for reading a decent book.

100% of my time on Facebook is getting voucher codes and posting pictures of painted plastic figurines.

 

Oh and links to videos of people doing stupid things. Lots of stupid things.

Nice.  I had no idea how *fruitcage*ed the GPU market was due to miners until the past couple of weeks.  Absolute madness.

Graphics processing units are better suited to data mining for crypto currencies than CPU chips are (for some reasons about the types of calculations and stuff) so these miners buy up graphics cards, driving up the price.

Sheesh surprising really! Hopefully it'll settle soon I wanted to get building a new system once we are in the house and settled.
