    What TV set do you have?

    I liked the UK version. I tried one of the others and the voice dubbing was distracting so I didn't keep watching.

    Mine is bigger than yours. I got the 65 inch. I hope 48 inch is big enough. It sounds very small but depends on your room size of course.

    I have the the LG GX. That is last years model. The GX is the Gallery version intended to be hung on the wall flat. If you can afford the G1 I would get that. It is a fantastic TV. I don't think burn is an issue these days but just dont leave it on static pictures for hours on end. It should not be an issue. I wouldn't worry if you use it as a regular TV. It is a TV but can also scroll through art works haha.

    What TV set do you have?

    I have an LG OLED. Bought it at the Black Friday sales last year. I paid slightly over $4K. It is a lot of money but has a stunning picture. I'm sure you can get a nice picture for a lot less though. I read a lot of reviews and it was rated very highly so that was the factor. I would suggest read online reviews for any models you like. There are a lot of cheaper chinese brands out there like TCL and Hisense which are probably adequate. It all depends how much your budget is. I convinced myself i will keep it for 10 years so it is not too bad spread over that timeframe.

    Australia v China

    There won't be much designing. The design phase will be Heads we buy an Astute, Tails we buy a Virginia.

    Australia v China

    They take that long to get built anyway. We'll be lucky if we get the first one within 10 years.

    Have you bought any bitcoin ?

    My Fortescue shares are taking a beating, although I will get a nice dividend end of next week. They are falling due to iron ore price dropping which is due to reduced Chinese demand. Commodoties are cyclical and we have just been through the peak of the cycle. I'm sure they will comeback in time. If you are a long term investor these are the times to buy and make them a core part of your portfolio for the long term.

    Most enduring international chocolate bar

    I don't think I've ever had them but I'm not that fancy either so I'll probably go through life without ever trying them. But I will make the point that covering something in chocolate does not automatically make it good.

    If in New Zealand the chocolate factory in Dunedin is worth a visit.
  10. Does it really need to take nearly a week to approve a new thread? Asking for a friend.

    They may be cross with us for building nuclear powered submarines. But they still need to buy our resources.

    How much do you need to retire in Australia in 2021?

    I follow this couple who retired to Canada from the UK. https://www.youtube.com/user/markmaker3 Interesting to hear from an expat couple in a different country.

    This is the most enduring chocolate bar (ie the oldest while still being made today).
