    Eric Cantona's bank protest isn't very wise | Business | The Observer

    Now that would be funny. A complete collapse of the FIAT money system because of one ex-footballer.

    Time to buy some more gold me thinks.
    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    Has Monsieur Cantona overestimated his own intelligence or underestimated the stupidity of le peuple?

    Is Cantona a druggy? That would explain a lot.

    Unfortunately the trouble with gold is that you can't eat it or use it to heat your house.

    You are clearly overpaid if you are heating your house with paper money.
    While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'

    Thieves just need to work out some addresses from the Facebook page, rich pickings Dec 7th.

    Not that anyone with real money would do this apart from Eric of course, anyone know where he lives?
    Science isn't about why, it's about why not. You ask: why is so much of our science dangerous? I say: why not marry safe science if you love it so much. In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired. - Cave Johnson

    Stick some bars on the radiators, it will radiate long after the heating goes off.
