the whole anti-palestine thing is over-exaggerated too - https://www.timesofisrael.com/sodastream-bringing-74-palestinians-back-to-work-israel/

far less plastic/energy waste using sodastream too

Safeway, that's a blast from the past.

Looking for some quality gloves. I have some generic leather gloves, COS I think, but below 0 they aren't any good. Is stylish and warm not possible?

Saw those at Arket, but there must be something else/better surely? Hestra is made in China.

^^^ I believe only the heritage collection are made in UK and they start around £100 for lined ones.

If you don't mind not being a fashion style, Chester Jeffries have made in UK models from £50ish. Got some silk lined ones so they aren't that warm, but nice hand stitched detail.

Been very happily Sodastreaming for the last few days.

Gassed up tap water tastes just like cheap bottled stuff.

Ive found the warmest solution is to buy your gloves slightly large and wear them over a thin wool pair. Not the most stylish or sometimes practical but fingers are toasty.

Fallen out of love with Apple and the time has come for me to jump ship from iPhone. Thinking S9 or OnePlus 6. Any fukers recommend either of these? Or something else? Preferably with upgradable storage.

If you can hold of until Jan/Feb the new Samsung will be coming out. If you don't care about the latest then the price of the previous generation will drop. The best deal at the moment for a Note 9 is trade in old phone for £200 and there is also £150 cashback on top of that, can be done online or instore at a Samsung Experience store. Note 9 is like £899 or £879 so with the deals it's 549 or 529.

Can't recommend Oneplus enough. Will be picking up a 6t as soon as this 3 dies.

No removable storage but what are you gonna be doing on there that 128gb isn't going to be sufficient? Loads of 4K vids?
