Oranjeboom, lovely lager
at 17:42 20 Jul 2016

Seems to have been a bit of a resurgence of this stuff (the blue 5% lager version) in South London. It's on tap at my local for £3.75 which is cracking really, considering comparative prices in Ipswich. Also £1 a can at most of the offy's round here.

Paypal withdrawal
at 16:37 20 Jul 2016

My landlord just sent me a few hundred quid via Paypal, reimbursing me for a plumbing emergency. I've withdrawn to my bank account, but somewhat ignorantly was expecting it to be instant.

Paypal advise any time between 2-72 hours for processing - anyone with any experience of this? Is it likely to take longer, because it's my first withdrawal? Many thanks in advance.

Is there a way to find out who owns the property which I rent?
at 14:16 20 Jul 2016

I have an inkling that the geezer who professes to be our landlord is actually a tenant, subletting the flat.

The world has moved on since Al-Qaeda
at 08:03 15 Jul 2016

What a disgraceful, disgusting act of terror. I am in bits.

Of note is that these types of attacks are very unlikely to have been co-ordinated centrally by ISIS. ISIS has all the problems of a rogue nation state looking to seize and control territory, and is unlikely to be able to focus efforts on anything further afield than the middle east whilst it struggles with resources and more and more effective Kurdish opposition. They can espouse apocalyptic Jihad on social media, but they are unlikely to be doing the type of underground, terror attack planning which was the hallmark of Al-Qaeda, the typical clandestine Islamic organisation.

Rather, these are more likely to be 'lone wolf' attacks perpetrated by individuals who have pledged allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi's Caliphate. Whether this is an important distinction is debatable, granted.

What is most distressing is that this COULD become the norm - attacks which don't require complex logistical planning or expertise. God knows there are enough disaffected, potentially mentally ill young people ready to be radicalised. I'm depressed today.
