    Battery/electric vs Petrol

    This was December-March. In my defence I had some wasteful guests, whose profligacy I didn’t clamp down on and I did more than usual with power tools. It’s usually more like £2-3 a quarter. I have been using more gas recently though. I had to do a day’s climbing to cover the bill for the next ten years. It’s hard work being a softheaded hippy cunt you know.

    There must be a drinking game for that programme where you down your drink every time the wife gets pregnant etc.

    Emissions, Global warming or a scam

    There's the resources to look after them now AND pay politicians and civil servants to administrate and hinder it. In the absence of the latter, there would be even more resources to do it. Not to mention family, charity etc and any number of other things I can't think of. That's the joy of not knowing everything though. Someone else will know how to make it work. You just have to let them.

    Tesco don't run for nothing and yet they run. It's none of my business how people make ends meet but I for one would offer any number of them a couple of quid to sit in stocks while I pelt them with tomatoes etc. To help them get back on their feet like.

    Probably with money, the extra money they'd have when the state isn't taking most of it (and is also too small and weak to otherwise impoverish them).

    You see, I'm annoyed about that very thing. I'd love to seize authority over every area of your life, and then return that authority to you with kindly advice to not let it slip away again.

    The market; the system that's consistently elevated living standards for as long as we've had the rule of law and enforceable property rights. As opposed to the separation of rich and poor now, where the poor are taxed like battery hens for state imitations of the aforementioned services and the rich merely keep what they earn and can afford things.

    Yes. If you like them, you’d pay for them voluntarily and they’d be cheaper because you wouldn’t be paying for state administration of the same workers etc.

    Sub contractor but also team leader

    He'll struggle, considering he doesn't understand the question.

    How’s the balance of the Makita?

    8mm twins or 9/10mm single and a 5/6mm retriever half. Possibly more weight but much more utility. I agree about speed but you balance it against safety. Prussiks on variably wet/frozen rope is too far off balance for me. And just imagine tugging at it when against the clock, in encroaching darkness, looming cold etc. You'd get angry and get something stuck. And if it does get stuck, 100% of your rope is stuck. If you pull through a doubled abseil and it gets stuck part way down, you can cut what you've got and keep going. Not for me.
