    I still eat lobster regularly, although from a slightly cheaper supplier now....

    True, but now some of us have all that there's no need to keeping asking about it.

    To summarise, lots of talk about economy cars, low rates, cheap accountants, cheap property, camper vans and camp sites, in fact cheap everything whilst contracting.
    Probably if you delved deeper advice where you could score a cheap lay, with possible "consequences", in Leeds.

    woohoo going for Forum Poster of the Year (I mean how much lower can we go).

    Everything seems to be about the Cheap, cheap, cheap, cheap.

    I remember when this site was primarily about exotic foreign climes, tax wheezes, stupidly high rates, private jets, hiring a chopper to take you to the slopes when needed, 1st class air travel at worst, houses in the country with resident hookers, powerful sports cars, drugs and a nanny that was paid enough not to do a "Weinstein".

    The only thing I have to remind me of CUK's old days is the Bitcoin threads and MF's creative, although totally made up, Walter Mitty type tales of well moneyed luxury.

    Are you really all out there doing it for feck all?

    Please tell some tales of luxury you have enjoyed in the past year and prove me wrong
    Do you need a couple of quid for a hostel for the night?

    Edit: And I sat in business class on a flight from Hong Kong. For 30 seconds while waiting in the queue to get off the plane at Heathrow on an economy ticket.

    After I cash in my bitcoins I'll get private jet.

    Yes another one, but this one is for personal use.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”
