How the hell do you select a property surveyor?
at 10:53 27 Jun 2022

I've had loads of quotes come in - from around the £500 mark to more than double that. Had a couple recommended by the estate agent and solicitors (but obvs don't know if they're getting backhanders for introductions). And is it a case of the cheaper companies being rubbish and the expensive ones charging over the odds?

It seems like a minefield!

Can anyone recommend a decent lunch place around Oxford Circus?
at 11:20 23 Jun 2022

I'm on Oxford Street, between Ox Circus station and TCR, so something that side would be good. We had Coco Di Mama yesterday, which was pretty decent.

If you have any interest in Oasis, this video is long but fascinating
at 11:49 18 Jun 2022

It's a conspiracy about the album (What's The Story) Morning Glory, and it all fits together. Whether it's true or not, it's an amazing effort by this fella and really interesting.



Think the Beatles links at the end are a bit tenuous, but the main body of the video makes sense.

Anyone good at maths?
at 13:55 13 Jun 2022

Or know how to work out the percentages of a Tenants in Common mortgage?!

I'm paying the deposit (10%) and a greater share of the monthly repayments (let's, for argument's sake, say I'm paying 70% and Lady Dollers is paying 30%)... but how do we put the deposit and monthly repayment figures together to work out our individual percentage ownership of the property?!

I'm a words person, no idea with maths.

Can anyone remember a comedy show where they secretly filmed regular people
at 15:49 25 May 2022

walking down a street, and said "Fat Madonna" etc... So it was people who looked a bit like fat or thin or old etc versions of celebs?

Probably 90's. Might've even been during Chris Evans' Don't Forget Your Toothbrush, but I'm sure a comedy sketch show did something similar.

Question on buying first property (so we're pretty ignorant)
at 11:03 23 May 2022

Is now the worst time ever to buy (as some have been telling us) or is this a bit of an over-reaction? We've found a place we like but some are telling us to wait, as interest rates are so high and a property market crash is coming. But we've heard this before, is anyone ever really sure? I've heard conflicting reports.

FFS. There should be an intelligence test before you're allowed to vote.

Anyone had any joy fast tracking a passport renewal lately?
at 13:55 26 Apr 2022

Don't seem to be ANY slots available online, so I've asked for a callback to see what my options might be. Suddenly need it for work... and realised my passport expires in 5 months. So close!

Any help gratefully received!

English Language question

A person suffering from amnesia can be described as an amnesiac, but how would you describe a drug that causes amnesia? I feel like "Midazolam is notoriously an amnesiac" isn't right. "Midazolam is notoriously an amnesic"? Or something else? Googling hasn't helped.
