    Coronavirus

    A lot of small companies are owned by old guys. They croak and the companies are bought up and gutted or shipped to the USA. The young guys are out of jobs.

    Continued building is a no no. Some trades could continue to make the job site safe and properly mothballed

    I never read the book but "Trading with the enemy" outlined how American companies manipulated the system. It depends on what senators own what companies.

    Coronavirus

    I would have guessed kids living with their parents or grandparents I wouldn't be surprised if some of the little psychopaths wanted their parents dead so they could inherit the farm. I also wonder about the double edged sword of the televangelists who support Trump and push the death aspect...

    If everyone was intelligent and law abiding we wouldn't need police or governments. If only we lived in Shangra-La

    Coronavirus

    It's hard being a little guy. If a person owned a number of condos the total income could cover one deadbeat. If they only have one unit they are paying for it and where they live. Not so good.

    They're busy reprogramming their outgoing messages to say they're the CRA and need your bank info so they can deposit your COVID benefits.

    I'll have to check on a couple of people I know in Panama, not the worst of places but still not as good as here. One is a native Panamanian and another a Canadian that wants a luxury life that she can't afford here.

    Coronavirus

    My daughter buys ornaments online from China and gets things for $3-4 shipping included. The package includes extra freebees. I can't mail anything Canada to Canada for that alone.

    Coronavirus

    Hypocrisy reigns. My wife is annoyed that a neighbour came back from Florida and hasn't done the isolation bit but doesn't say anything about her sister that went to Mexico when everyone else was pulling the plug on travel.

    Coronavirus

    I joked with someone me about wanting to be on a 45 foot yacht in the middle of a lake. Now a friend in Quinte has informed me they are closing boat ramps and marinas don't meet the distancing formula so they won't open either. Getting the boat launched could be a problem. The same friend said...

    Thinking way down the road and the bills have to be paid. Andy is a mechanic running a one man shop and rents an industrial unit from Barry who, to buy it, borrowed $300K from Charlie. Charlie cashed in a term deposit to get a better rate on a mortgage and desperately needs the income. COVID...

    COVID-19 potential restrictions on riding?

    Get your law degree. Divorces, wills, will challenges, business failures, lawsuits. Another exponential graph.

    Some actual science on a touchy subject....darksiding

    To me the only advantage to a car tire is the availability of a run flat. The technical aspects have been debated to death. If the riding couple exceeds the tire weight (Don't forget her make-up trailer) it's unlikely the rest of the bike is safe for the ride. If you need a massive bike...

    COVID-19 potential restrictions on riding?

    Today the Mrs and I went out for fish and chips. We share a bed so any cross contamination has happened. Both of us feel fine. Call it cabin fever or whatever you want we needed an outing so we hopped in the cage and drove to the chip shop and parked. I followed their instruction given to me...

    COVID-19 potential restrictions on riding?

    It's a joke until it happens to you. People that don't work in brick and mortar buildings depend on coffee shops and the like to relieve themselves. TP and a shovel is fine if you're in the wilds but not in southern Ontario.

    Who pays Uber?

    Out of curiosity How does getting restaurant meals via Uber work out financially for Uber, the driver, the restaurant and the consumer? I get the impression that Uber gets a 30% of the tab. Does the consumer also pay Uber or what kind of tip is expected and to who? Tax? Assume a $60.00 meal...

    Safely buying a bike private sale that has a lien with a manufacturers financial company

    The seller has to come up with some money to get the bike loan above water or find an idiot buyer. The seller can put a loan on another asset, sell another asset or borrow on his credit card. If he can't do any of the above he has enrolled in bankruptcy 101. If he can add to a car loan or home...
