Chartering a private jet at short notice is very much a thing. There is an entire industry set up to get wealthy people from anywhere to anywhere as quickly as possible in the lap of luxury. Sticking a £15m asset on a knackered plane being flown by someone without a commercial license is, to say the least, a questionable decision.

There is a whole "underground" market for taking plane trips in small planes that skirt around the usual compliance requirements for operating aircraft commercially. It is based around whether or not the plane owners, or the pilot, are receiving commercial reward for the flight, or whether it is just done for reasonable expenses. It's a slightly grey area of legislation that has been exploited to the maximum. Additionally in this case there are big questions around the ownership of the plane, its US registration and the US-flagged license that the pilot was flying on - he almost certainly wasn't correctly license for flying a plane of that type, at night, in bed weather. I'm sure this will all come out, in detail in the AIIB report - they are very thorough.

See: Wingly for an example
https://en.wingly.io/index.php

I expect this crash will result in the CAA changing the regulations around what private pilots can and can't do - its going to get even murkier post-Brexit as our laws (and pilot licensing) will be out of line with Europe. It's quite possible post-Brexit without any changes, that private pilots (and UK-registered General Aviation aircraft) will have a difficult time flying across the channel.

My girlfriend and I have been thinking about moving for a while and I've spent a few days just driving around aimlessly finding nice looking areas and that sort of thing.

When I suggested a lovely place overlooking the river and right next to the marina, I mentioned it separately to my girlfriend, my mother, and my closest friend, and they all said almost exactly the same thing - "Yeah but you'll end up spending loads of money on a boat, won't you?"

I don't know where I gained this reputation for being such a financially irresponsible prick enthusiastic, broad minded hobbyist, but I'm not sure I enjoy being so predictable. They're completely right, too, I had already looked up docking fees.

My girlfriend wants to either move to the seafront or closer to the airport, I'm not sure she appreciates just how far my sickness goes, though. I'll either be lost at sea or have a pilots license by the end of the year.

As an aside, I've always held the probably innacurate idea that living on the seafront is a nightmare in terms of your house rotting away from rust and saltwater erosion. But the view would be nice. But then so would being able to walk to the airport.

>My political outgroup are all evil people that revel in the suffering of people they have Othered or unpersoned and use it entirely to empower themselves on the back of their supporters who are all dumb for believing in them and their crude generalizations
>The NPC meme is ironic because people using it are repeating it mindlessly in order to accuse their opponents of mindlessly repeating talking points.

Imagine being sentient enough to notice the latter but lack enough self-awareness to see any issue in the former.

I love how you accuse OP of buying into 3 random theories that exist within various degrees of kookery because they sometimes fall on the same side of the single dimension.

When someone's that high on political Kool-Aid what happens when they see the other end of it? Is partisanship strong enough to overcome any self-refection, drowning it in loud thoughts of "MY SIDE GOOD, YOUR SIDE BAD" in a two-minute hate in the brain? Or do people exist in strong enough bubbles online that they hardly ever get exposed to opposing viewpoints, to keep up the image they have in their head of French nationalists crying about Obama's FEMA camps because all conspiracy theorists are the same and all right wingers are conspiracy theorists? Did I load the fuck out of those questions?

Also, LOL at your whiggery to dismiss ideas that are considered anathema now but weren't considered so within living memory.

Lads, I've been having a think. How much do you plan your life? As in:-

• "I want to live in a nice house in that lovely village I always pass through. Here's how I'm going to achieve it."
• "The ultimate aim in my career is to be doing x.
• "I want to retire by the time I'm 60. I'm going to put away x amount of money every month to try and achieve this."
• "By the time I'm 40 I'd like to have traveled to the Azores, Japan, New Zealand and the Galapagos islands."
• "I want to learn a new language in the next two years."
• "This summer I'm going to walk the Three Peaks, go white water rafting and start training for my first 10k."

You get the idea. I have a milestone birthday later this month and, whilst my life isn't without direction, I could probably do with some more concrete end goals and how these are to be achieved.

I bought YNAB 4 on Steam, and I see it's no longer available. Back then it was just software you paid once for. I had no idea that it had switched to a subscription-based service. That's awful. You have to budget for your budgeting software?

Anyway, YNAB 4 worked fine for me. You don't even need the software, because YNAB is a method composed of simple rules:
1. Give Every Dollar a Job (i.e. categorise all your money each month, you don't have any 'spare' cash, and if you do, you put it in a specific 'spare' category)
2. Save for a Rainy Day (i.e. set up categories for any emergencies and allocate savings for them so you aren't taken by surprise when the worst happens)
3. Roll with the Punches (i.e. if you overspend in one category, no worries, next month just increase your budget for that category)
4. Live on Last Month's Income (i.e. if you can pay this month's bills with the money you made last month, you don't need to worry about money any more).

They claim that you will save far more than the subscription cost. Its main selling points seem to be that it can integrate with US bank accounts to breakdown and analyse your spending and also it can be used to set and measure progress towards financial goals.

I've been spending a fair bit of time on r/UKPersonalFinance after seeing it mentioned on here a few time; the key things I've gleaned from it are get some form of budgeting software, change jobs every 3-5 years if your salary is falling below the market rate and to invest any money you can tie away into index trackers to benefit from compound growth.

>According to the Metro, the DJ - real name Ville Virtanen

Not really related to the subject at hand, but I saw fellow Finn Ville Vallo once. My mate and I were on the way to a dance club, and unbeknownst to us, that club was booked for the after show party of the H.I.M. concert that had just finished nearby that night. The only way in was with one of those plastic wrist bands, which had been passed out to all the people with backstage passes at the concert. A fact that we only realised when we got to the front of the queue and were asked why we weren't wearing our wrist bands. We did get a close look at Ville Vallo though, because right when the bouncers were telling us to get lost, a black van pulled up right in front of the venue and out came Ville Vallo, wearing a frilled blouse, a billowing black and marple leather trenchcoat, and jackboots. A sight to behold. He really looked like the devil himself. He said "Good evening, gentlemen" to the bouncers, in a noticeable but not too heavy Finnish accent, and then disappeared into the club together with his two bodyguards.

Happy New Year lads. You got anything going on? Any resolutions you want to share?

This year I'm doing my annual tradition of foregoing the parties to stay in being a complete manchild. Made dinner with the Aquabats blaring and later on I'm going to watch some anime. All while getting pissed and seeing if the phone I ordered is actually going to be delivered today like the UPS website suggests.

My resolution this year is to budget responsibly which I've already been making cracking progress on these past couple of months. I've set up a little tally with budgeted amounts a little in excess so each category builds a nest egg for months I overspend. Things are looking good so long as I keep it up.

Did they teach you how to catch them though? You can hardly expect to skin them if you can't catch them.

Not him but they never taught me anything remotely useful in cubs. I got hit by a firework the leader bloke set up wrong and got a cool scar on my arm, though.

Never bothered with scouts but I think they taught how to trap.

It's not hard to catch a rabbit, mind. You can basically shout at one until it dies of shock.

It depends entirely on the group; there's a lot of pot luck. My son went to Scouts last night and he did ironing, cooking and washing up. Then again, they have done things like potholing, rock climbing and steering a narrow boat so it's swings and roundabouts.

No, original poster here.
One of the leaders turned up with a dead rabbit. Don't know how he got it. The only thing that I actually learned from the shouting movement was how to masturbate and put up a tent.

I don't really have problems with reconciling my or whoever else's place in the world. More so if it's war, of which my granddad told never to glorify one unless there's profit to be made.
I just feel inadequate, incompetent and infantile, and probably am.
Possibly lack of self-love and low levels of self-respect and that I was never taught about these things.

What's the best ~40" TV I can buy with a budget of up to £400? I was thinking of something like this, although I have a Samsung at the moment and there's been the odd niggle.

Are TVs similar to smartphones these days, as in it's much of a muchness between them all?

> They all have pretty poor speakers because they're so thin, so I'd strongly recommend budgeting for a soundbar, preferably with a subwoofer.

This is almost never a bad idea, even with TVs from the big and trusted brand names. But to get the most out of your TV, especially in the livingroom, your best bet still is probably connecting it to your home hi-fi system. It will save you the expense of a sound bar in any case. Then again, if you live in a block of flats or even a terrace, watching an action film via a set of full size hi-fi speakers late at night could annoy your neighbours.

You could indeed get better sound out of even the most basic CRT television sets back in the day, usually because the TV's whole case was your resonance chamber. This meant that even a set of very budget 4'' drivers could deliver full and rich sound.

Proper hi-fi speakers are a better choice in terms of fidelity, but they're more expensive unless you go second-hand and they're a bit messy and fiddly compared to a soundbar. They can also be a bit phlegmatic to fit in smaller rooms, especially if you're planning on wall-mounting the TV. I have an ageing set of PMC speakers and a Yamaha receiver that I'm very happy with, but most people aren't willing to have a load of boxes and wires cluttering up their lounge.

You can get very decent quality these days from a set of used hi-fi speakers for quite little money. On the mechanical side of speaker design, the technological advances the last 10 to 15 years really weren't that fundamental anymore, and a decent pair from the mid-2000s will not sound considerably worse than what you can buy today.

A lot depends nowadays on good DSP inside your amplifier. But even a noteworthy brand name ampflifier from 10-15 years ago, with DSP, can be had for a song today. If you can do without wi-fi access on your amp, a mid-2000s Yamaha, Harman Kardon or even an Onkyo amp will be cheap as chips.

Personally I'd always go that route. Sound bars are convenient and all, but they simply won't give you the richness of an all out hi-fi sound system.

Which one would you choose out of these two:-

https://www.richersounds.com/hise-h43a6200uk.html

I'm tempted towards the cheaper one as it has 'motion processing' and greater energy efficiency. The slightly more expensive one has more 'brightness' and will apparently have voice activation by a later update, which I'd take as not happening if it's not there already.

Polite sage because I meant to make this thread on /g/ and I've only just realised I didn't when trying to look for it again.

The lower energy efficiency of the a6200 is a direct result of the higher maximum brightness. The difference in brightness is only 50 nits, but that could be significant if your living room has a lot of daylight. If you've noticed that your current TV sometimes looks dim and washed-out during the day, go for the a6200. If not, it's a question of whether you're willing to pay 10% extra for very slightly better picture quality and 5GHz WiFi. Otherwise, the two TVs are basically identical - same chassis, same ports, same electronics.
