Re: Need Help: Vegetarian Recipes

I got in JIT :-)
better JIT than J2L!

I had to minimise BYND regret so chucked out some 85 puts on the close, which expiry on Friday.
Nickels are so much sweeter in the shadow of the bulldozer. (but $2 seemed fairly chunky).

Re: What's the optimal strategy to this food transportation problem?

cf. The Jeep problem (it's somewhere in Bellman's 1950s book but googling should find some references).

Grime?
Thanks. Good one.  You are down with the kids!  
I just read about "Grime for Corbyn" online.  I wonder if that marriage will last the course?

Re: Are you ready for Brexit?

Milkshake, Molotov cocktail, whatever. You're about to get some free advice from a visiting dignitary on how to deal with Brussels. While I wouldn't exactly wish Corbyn upon you, there would be some entertainment value in watching him deal with Trump, and vice versa. Boris, much less so. I think th...

Re: Need Help: Vegetarian Recipes

BTW, I sold BYND with a very good profit, because I needed money for a charity project </virtue signalling> and also because I'm unsure what's going to happen next (I don't know of any further sprouting success announcements). Did you get in close to the IPO levels??  Respect!    </greed and envy s...

Re: Are you ready for Brexit?

Don't throw away your tickets yet, Fat White Family is still on: "In a 2015 tweet, the punk rock band, from south-east London, said anyone who voted Tory had "blood" on their hands, and called for them to be executed." I think we deported Abu Qatada to Jordan for saying such things? I wonder why it...

I hate to open the the possibility for ranty political flame wars but it is one of things Obama seemed to get right: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-RWWQt2d_Y3c/Tdwwk9DD20I/AAAAAAAAA3U/FxJfLWGmli4/s1600/x610.jpg https://ichef.bbci.co.uk/news/660/cpsprodpb/F1CE/production/_107220916_370bc6b7-b7f2-40cf-a927...

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

So, the GO fucking P just closed down the last abortion clinic in the state of Missouri. I know nobody else around here cares, but it's still a pretty big deal for anybody with a concern for women's right to control over their own bodies.  Those protesters dressed as characters from the Handmaid's ...

Re: Are you ready for Brexit?

The question is, are there enough MPs in the current Parliament who are more afraid of a Corbyn government than of a no-deal Brexit? It seems harder and harder to find any configuration that doesn't end up with a no-deal brexit. I bet we end up with Corbyn plus no deal. Trying to navigate between S...

Re: which movie should I see this weekend?

Dawn of the Dead was always a favourite.

This scene seems a rather apt metaphor for the UK at the moment.


Any movie with zombies -- zombies are boring. (Unless they're White Walkers  :D)
