    I don't think you can relate the two.

    Protesting people insulting (and possibly attacking) your religion and cultural identity ≠ supporting murder.

    You can't look at these things in a vacuum where persecution of Muslims doesn't exist.

    The fussy ones look a bit too cluttered imo, whereas the beauty of a Lange is that Teutonic simplicity.

    It's a shame the big date ones seem to only be with black faces now vs the OG one

    Good thoughts.

    I wasn't considering it for us personally - I was idly thinking about how to build a raised paved raised patio, googled and saw these. Was a bit unsure about strength, but thought it was a good way of not having to move a fucktonne of rubble to raise the ground height and ensure proper damp proofing adjoining the house.

    I'm not sure I'm convinced about the risk of sinking. You'd obviously have a solid footing underneath - as you would with anything. The question then is if you have to make 25 footings or something is it actually saving time?

    In terms of rats, curious as to why is this a greater issue than with wood decking? Or is it equally an issue there too - which would be good to know as there's a bit of the garden we'll add a deck to... eventually.

    mirror

    Is there a reason everyone is so sure that it is a mirror?

    On first look I assumed it was glass, and the reflection of that little bit of string is just reflection you'd get with a normalish glass (there is nothing else, like the sofa showing). The angle of normal glass would give a bit of directional light reflection as well as refracting the light upwards - which based on the bulb is what I assumed the main purpose is.

    No idea who would want to own it.

    Someone with arthritis?

    It's a silly point, but it's great when you see details like the stonework used correctly, fitting in beautifully, rather than being hideously replicated as a fashion trend.

    2nd hand Lange Vs 2nd hand Rolex are one of the best e.g.s of market irrationality around.

    Top two:

    Vintage white gold daydate with lume pips and no roman numerals is up there as one of my dream watches.

    ALL THE TIME ZONE! watches are a bit gimmicky imo.

    The dual time is the one you want - albeit not a 2021 watch.

    I guess though if you're going to be living in France speaking to people in the UK, East and West Coast then you bring yourself nicely back round to a Rolly GMT on one wrist and your fitbit on the other.
