This is a collection of thoughts and statements about things that annoy me. I am a big, angry man. Hear me roar, or piss off and give me peace.

Wise Investment

The Torygraph tells us that Merrill Lynch (haven't they gone bust yet?) say that rich folk are buying gold instead of keeping their money in the bank, or under the mattress.

"They are so worried they want a portable asset in their house. I never thought I would be getting calls from clients saying they want a box of krugerrands,

That could be because nobody trusts the banks any more - no matter how the governments try to convince us that everything will be ok.

My pal Johnny sent me a link to a gold seller a few months ago. They do very tasteful little bars of gold, and also coin. I am tempted.

I am stockpiling, for The Inevitable Zombie Apocalypse, or other method of the ending civilisation, bottles of whisky (which I can drink) and cans of Heinz Cream of Tomato soup. Johnny tells me he's hoarding coffee and pornography.

I can't help but think I should be stockpiling some of these cartridges... And I'm not talking about for my fountain pen.

I reckon you're going to need a good stock of hard-copy pornography - I'm pretty sure that TEOTWAWKI would involve an interruption of broadband intarw3bz connectivity.
