    Do you really want the US to continue dictating global agenda?

    You are unfamiliar with how America operates. The normal leadership is still in place and has been since the end of World War II, and what you are seeing is a very visible (kubuki theater) internal power struggle between less global footprint (Trump) and more global footprint (basically 98% of the government). All while there is a serious worldwide financial problem brewing within the foundation of the US backed petrol dollar in which there are three sides currently competing to be the next market maker.

    Don't get distracted by Trump's antics, even though that is exactly what he is there for... but you would probably **** yourself if the news ignored Trump and reported truthfully about what is really going on. It is going to be a very interesting '20s.

    trash, interested in hearing about the petrol dollar crisis.

    The Punisher - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5675620 - finishing this series up, too bad is only 2 seasons, pretty good, bloody.

    Rich Man, Poor Man - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074048/ - found this one, started rewatching. loved it as a kid, kinda campy old fashioned seeming now. still good tho.

    Part 1: good boy Rudy goes to college while bad boy Tom goes to live with an uncle. Tom lets his tough guy persona slip with a few tears.

    The world has three competing "global" currencies and each are manipulated by various means. The EU manipulates via manufactured population expansion emulating growth. The US and OPEC manipulates via manufactured commodity scarcity. The PRoC manipulates directly via two currencies (internal RMB and external CNY) and indirectly by sequestration of the global rare earth market. And while everyone plays in each of these baskets with varied success, the PRoC has rapidly expanded their influence/control into Africa and Eurasia/Oceania (including Australia/New Zealand), while Russia and the US are still dickering over pipeline control from the ME to Germany and are trying to not so gracefully re-position for the next hot point. Bottom line with the petro-dollar is we have way too much oil, and the world is realizing there is a limitless supply and it has become increasingly difficult to manufacture the necessary supply and demand ratios that will allow the global energy market to exist. This is a huge problem for much of the ME, Russia (and Norway) and a large chuck of the US, but will ultimately be especially problematic for those that hold US denominated debt.

    I guess we'll have to wait and see just how committed everyone is to this charade.

    thanks trash, i'll take that bottom line, the rest is obviously quite complex.

    Wolfy, happy for you on getting to see the grandkids.

    edit: Rich Man, Poor Man

    part 2: plenty of heartbreak, philandry, unplanned pregnancy, etc. Tom has his first scene (reprised later in "Down And Out In Beverly Hills") of illicit love with the maid.

    Wolfson looks like there will be local lockdowns in many countries for some time, lockdown restrictions in the UK (with the exception of Leicester) are still gradually easing through the rest of July - had my last haircut in February, few more days until hairdressers can reopen, goodness knows how long it will take to get an appointment though as pretty much the entire country will want one.

    Nearly time for the first race of the F1 season in not [Australia, Bahrain, Vietnam, China, Netherlands, Spain, Monaco, Azerbaijan, Canada, France], but Austria - at least its the country sounding closest to Australia. Second race of the season is also at same circuit in Austria - minimum of 8 races needed to finish a season so they are doubling up at Austria and Silverstone to loose as little TV revenue as possible. Formula E is going down the more extreme route next month and having all races back to back at same circuit; while I expect it will fulfil contractural obligations not convinced the rest of Formula E will be worth watching.

    Posted a couple of books and on the way there hairdressers had a notice in the window that they are taking appointments - rang them up and managed to get an appointment within the first week of them opening so only have 9 days to wait now. By then it will be about 4.5 months since my previous haircut - I expect that is a lifetime record, not quite sure what happened when I was under 3 years old.

    Rich Man, Poor Man

    all parts to the end: Tom and his friend get their charter yacht biz started with help from Rudy, he also gets Tom's son back for him, happy times, Rudy gets elected senator but this is ruined by his drag of a wife, Rudy forced to give up politics bcuz of her. I will leave off telling the ending for anyone wanting to watch the series.

    Never liked Book II, won't be watching it.

    always loved racing games wolfy! nfs porsche unleashed was a great one, i miss burnout dominator, which had some great tracks. burnout paradise was great, until they decided to put out a remastered version and make everybody pay for the game again if you wanted to keep playing it online.

    nfs rivals won't even work on xbox one, what a shame! need for speed (2015) is a great one. nfs payback not so great. nfs most wanted (2012) was great on xbox 360, but for some reason never made it to xbox one. nfs heat i have heard bad things about it not working correctly on xbox one, so have held off buying it. might see if it has a demo, doubtful tho. vrally 4 is good, tho quite difficult even on the easiest settings. dirt 2 is a great game.

    i have forza horizon, not a favorite, tho it is okay. forza motorsport 6 i really liked, a freebie for xbox gold.

    some honorable mentions: nfs undercover, stuntman ignition, split second, joyride turbo, the trials series, hydro thunder hurricane, motocross madness, grid. gta5 has some cool races, but are not the focal point of the game.

    edit: i'm talking about an old grid game, of course, not the one in the video.
