well that puts it into perspective.

I mean who would buy property when you could have 93,000 pints instead BD BD BD


#3

So we all got drunk and went out and bought over priced houses.

Just like on Wall St.

’The Workmans Friend’

When things go wrong and will not come right,
Though you do the best you can,
When life looks black as the hour of night -
A PINT OF PLAIN IS YOUR ONLY MAN.

When money’s tight and hard to get
And your horse has also ran,
When all you have is a heap of debt -
A PINT OF PLAIN IS YOUR ONLY MAN.

When health is bad and your heart feels strange,
And your face is pale and wan,
When doctors say you need a change,
A PINT OF PLAIN IS YOUR ONLY MAN.

When food is scarce and your larder bare
And no rashers grease your pan,
When hunger grows as your meals are rare -
A PINT OF PLAIN IS YOUR ONLY MAN.

In time of trouble and lousey strife,
You have still got a darlint plan
You still can turn to a brighter life -
A PINT OF PLAIN IS YOUR ONLY MAN.

Good man Bull
That’s it

Don’t buy until the pint index gets back to 30,000


#7

That’s 7.3 pints per day over 35 years. Far from those Halcyon days of 2007 when would have a tasty 8.3.


#8

Where are these prices from - Dublin centre bars??The last time I was over - 2006,a pint in the sticks cost 3 euro’s.


#9

On the basis of 10 pints a night (it is a recession after all), 93,000 pints will take approximately 25 years to drink (more if you take sundays as a day of rest).

Nice.


#10

Equally you’d be hard pressed to get a pint in Dublin city centre for €4.20.


#11

AS a contrarian and long term Guinness consumer,the house price peak/pint index represents a “peak Guinness” moment in the housing/Guinness index and represents a never to be repeated opportunity of Guinness affordability!!!

Tell your grandkids about it :smiley:


#12

2006?
Are you sure it wasn’t 1952 there alf?


#13

No,was definitely 3 euros a pint, I remember begrundgingly buying the scouse git his at three and 2 euros for a coke for the silly moo. :smiley:


#14

Clearly the problem was that pints became too cheap.


#15

Absolutely,To quote Liz at the time…there never has been a better time to buy a round :smiley:


#16

That’s a long time to hold off the guinness… Not sure, I’ll manage it… :mrgreen:


#17

Pure genius!


#18

I’m bloody sure the last time I bought someone a pint it was 5.60.

I must be drinking in the wrong places.
