It seems the old chat is revitalizing people. In the old days (pre-2008) we could boast of mentally diminutive shit buys, alas not not.

What is your most bizarrely/anti-bling/bling thing? I remember a commodities throbber who bought and entire T-Rex Skeleton in his house.

I am buying a 5 bed in Avonalde, Harare, Zim. They never stole property in the towns, it's super cheap and a future economic centre. The murder risk is lower than SA.

Before the crisis I used to buy bonds delivery free of payment and demand the back office wire the cash to an account number. Legit.

I have a Z$100T note I keep meaning to frame. Imagine coming to the closing on your house with a bag filled with about 600,000 Z$100T notes.

I'm off to Zim in 3 weeks. Crossing the land border from Kruger.

Need a laager on a hill at this rate.

I kinda want this chat to light up with random stuff.

For anyone with kids in public (for foreigners: private) school in the UK you can get a top 20 UK equivalent public school A-level education in Zim (in the top 3 schools) for USD 10K/annum. Tell me you don't want to... versus GBP 35K/annum.

Zim is great. And they are less likely to murder you than SA.

SA: Land Mines for the Garden in SA; except the police do nothing now.

London is great. High rate (daily) acid splash to random pedestrians, faces dimmed by phones by people walking by in the night.

T-Rex is not small. Chinese dinosaurus valley sells them 20k per frame. Can be 3D-printed though. (Once I got fixed on them too, as our little girl adored all those creatures, now she likes robots and AI).
