Campanas (3/5)

  1. Tag yourselves if you were at JJFox. Would be nice to put faces to names. @ha_banos I know, and met Rich Bernard, had a chat with @El Presidente and @bayala Saw @Ryan but didn't get a chance to chat before leaving. Privileged. Massive thanks. Great evening.
  2. What else would you do with the cash? Inflation is set to soar for a while yet. Consider the opportunity cost of buying them (what else could you have spent the money on). If the enjoyment of CCs outweighs the fun or economic benefit from spending elsewhere, go for it. You don't have to get nerdy and calculate the NPV of all the opportunities, but if you dumped 10k on cigars, would that leave you in a hole with the mortgage rate if it jumped to 10% in 12 months time? It's all relative. They're fantastic things, but not worth getting in a financial mess over. If you have plenty of coin, plough in!👍🏻
  3. Will be good to finally meet after all these years! Safe travels. I guess for Sydney to London, you still have to go via Dubai, yeah?
  4. When PESTLE factors knock on the door, pivoting is a great opportunity. I love Cuban cigars, but they're eventually going to price me out, when I can get a great smoke elsewhere for $10 or less a stick. I'm fine with "I used to smoke Cubans" if that's the way they want to play it. Whatever you choose Rob, I'm sure it will be superb.
  5. I didn't realise we had a Cohiba Atmosphere in the UK? I thought they were in Eastern Europe. How much will this hurt? Well into 3 figures a bottle, or 4?
  6. "Key Largo, Fargo, ooh where will my car go..." 😉
  7. 🎶 Aruba, Jamaica, come on pretty mama... Sorry.
  8. They are/were €200 on release, or thereabouts. 😔
  9. These are like rocking-horse poop. Partagas Legados LE 2020
  10. Plenty in the UK Rob! 😀👍🏻 Although now looking at £600 vs. £300 release price, from the gougers anyway.
  11. So if the US is borrowing money, and we're (UK) borrowing money, and you're borrowing money (insert any country), who's doing all the lending against a promised future payback? Who are the creditors? I used to think China. But isn't China's economy in the toilet as well?
  12. Anyone want to have a stab at Ethereum for 2022? I'd plump for $15k USD.
  13. Instead of :full-bodied:, I use 'full-flavoured'. Avoids the confusion that people have confusing body and strength.
