Won't be long till it's as bad here as it is in the UK, I think the average over there is about 2k per household.

Ireland is in a death spiral, time to get out I feel.

Where could you go that's not as fucked at here ? Caribbean maybe
Been thinking for a long time now to get out and go to somewhere like Spain, Portugal even Italy.

Sell up, and purchase a nice property in a remote area, at least id have the sun on my back instead of paying overpriced energy costs.

There can be double standards on foreigners in Spain, in terms how they are treated by Local municipalities. Loo into it.

I know some folk who went to Portugal tho.

Things are not looking too bright in that golden utopia otherwise known as Silicon Valley -

Meta has let go of at least 21,000 workers, while Google has handed pink slips to hundreds of employees across San Francisco, Sunnyvale and Mountain View.

Let us not forget that thousands are employed in Ireland by big tech as well, what if the unthinkable happens and it spreads across the pond?

Inevitable with the growing use of AI I think.

On the AI front I'm getting the vibes that it's not all that its cracked up to be. Like everything else once you start digging below the surface it gets to be a different story. It was put to me like this - You and I know what a cup and saucer are, and we know how to pour tea, but AI hasn't a clue, they are just words that may be reassembled using references to them it has found elsewhere. The words mean nothing, there is no understanding, these are not conscious machines capable of making a decision.

The AI lustre will fade soon enough.
