    really don't give two hoots about stealing your money. Tax isn't stealing. We live in one society. The wealthy should not have a get out clause from contributing their fair share. They are the thieves. Not the poor wanting public services.
    I suspect the poor benefit a lot more from living in a society with rich people in it than the rich benefit from living in a society with poor people in it, even aside from donations by the rich to the poor. Most of the wealth in society doesn't come from manual labour, it comes from the complex higher level organisation of the society. This is how people with no skills are able to immigrate from foreign countries that lack this complex higher level organisation, and immediately earn considerably more than they could at home. This complex organisation of society is almost entirely provided by rich people.

    Either pay off the car loan, or pay off some of my mortgage. I might just put it into my "oh 'pants' I can't pay my mortgage" account, which is growing, but I don't dare pay off my mortgage because I like having a decent buffer of cash.

    With ISA's giving a mere 4% Interest rate (which is rare), it's barely worth putting it in really.

    Knowing me, I'd probably just waste a bunch of it on pointless things from eBay 😂​😂​

    You think it'd be that easy to double your money gambling?
    Explain (I'm not much of a gambler, hence why I'm asking)

    Looks nice!
    Would go really well with most things really.
    I know it's worlds apart (cost wise!) but I really like the Alpha Industries MA-1 Flight jackets.
    I need to spend more on clothes admittedly.

    50/50 whether it lands on red or black. Or put it on Trap 4 at Monmore in the 16:08 race.

    Is it really as simple as that on roulette?
    IK there's the wheel bit and I would assume thats what you're betting on, either black or red.
    But on the table, is that merely where people sit to place their chips in to bet? Or is there some card element to it?

    (I feel as if all my movie-viewing lack of knowledge has meant that all sorts of gambling have merged into one.. lmao)
