    £750 ish on gaming laptop

    I posted t’other day about wanting the new resident evil 2 remake. My current pc is destined to be sold (as a whole or in bits). I’ve been eyeing up some of the gaming laptops on OC, there are several around the £750 mark, give or take. I threw them in my basket but can’t seem to get the bb code...

    Would anyone likely buy my current PC? Or upgrade?

    How much would you have to spend on a new system? :) Gah, not entirely sure. It would depend on how much I could raise from the existing sale. I’m also flogging a couple of other bits around the house to raise capital. I’ll still have to add to it all ultimately. It’ll be a budget conscious...

    Would anyone likely buy my current PC? Or upgrade?

    Mega dilemma: I've had my PC for about four years now (Overclockers build) and I've basically only used it for a single game until now. I'm still likely to play this game in the future (World of tanks) but I really really want the new Resident evil 2 (remake) and I believe my setup just won't...

    "We're not France, we're Engerland, we used to be a proud nation". That's a strategy there that is.

    The Labour Party: Where do we go from here?

    Please tell me you said that in a gammon Facebook rage-bait voice. "absolutely sick and discusting it is a outrage"

    Brexit Discussion

    This, effectively. If you're worried about actual insulin shortages it's because you're a traitor and have no 'faith', rather than because you have legitimate concerns. The brexiteer line is effectively to Ad hom your opponent into the ground with "we won you lost get over it" rhetoric and then...

    2019 Chilli Growing thread

    I went full on this year. Built myself a grow cupboard using some old bits of kitchen cabinet and IKEA billy bookcase + bubblewrap and reflective radiator sheeting. I also got a mega 200W CFL bulb which gives off some serious heat. Also acquired heated propagators for additional win...

    Do you believe in god or a divine entity?

    Thanks for keeping us abreast of the situation :D

    The Illuminati

    Great satire like, but I'm concerned that someone had to type that much for an internet prank. It is a prank, right?

    Bankruptcy too easy, Woman overclaim £15K of tax credit then goes bankrupt to avoid repaying it

    And as if by magic Martin Lewis was discussing just this last night on his ITV show: http://www.itv.com/hub/the-martin-lewis-money-show/2a1827a0043 One woman whom he helped out was chased for a £6k overpayment, even though she had kept HMRC in the loop with regards to her change in...

    Memories, Dreams Vs Reality

    There are several reasons why the brain might commit part of a dream to long term memory. It is not simply 'useful' things as such that we remember. Anything that elicits an emotional response for example has a chance to be stored. We remember scary things, funny things, interesting things etc...

    Bankruptcy too easy, Woman overclaim £15K of tax credit then goes bankrupt to avoid repaying it

    This. Firstly it's ok to blow your trumpet on your qualifications. You're an 'expert' or approaching that, rather than an 'authority', which is quite different. As you mentioned the biggest issue is what type of person is most likely to be applying for these tax credits (the terminology itself...

    post truth - word of the year

    You mean you don't attend the fortnightly 'left' meet ups with the rest of us? I've been a leftist for 4 years now, I bloody love left culture.

    post truth - word of the year

    I suspect her anecdote about meeting someone in a pub that called her a smelly racist urine chin and "pledged his alleigance to the Guardian" is mostly fabricated, or at least excessively embelished for emotional appeal. I'm probably in the vague 'lefty elite' category but I've never met anyone...

    Do you believe in god or a divine entity?

    I'm sure your intentions are good, but I'm afraid that the Qu'ran contains very little in the way of unique scientific concepts, least of all 'modern' science, which the Qu'ran predates and thus cannot contain. Most of the allegory is so vague that it could be deliberately reinterpreted to mean...

    Whats happened to democracy?

    I love the way the term 'statist' just gets thrown around and misapplied to anyone who favours the 'wrong' sort of legislation. Legislate against smoking in eating places, booooo nanny state. Legislate against union ballot rules, hurrah bloody lefties.

    post truth - word of the year

    No it doesn't. There was plenty of golden age nostalgia, but the NHS pledge was HUGE. It would be equally as naive to discount its influence, I know numerous leavers who made a decision with that suggestion at the forefront of their minds. The older generations were more likely to form opinions...
