    The first skate tee I got was in 1989 and it cost 18 quid. Skate stuff hasn't barely changed in cost in 20 years.

    yeah that annoys me. my bus used to be 90p it's now 1.30 i think. and that's a half fare for a 10 minute journey. at least its free in london.until you get caught

    7 euros for a pint of Kronenbourg at the Part-Dieu station in Lyon last Friday.
    The reason why I stopped there for a drink is that my train was canceled and I had to wait for a bus later. 4 hours in a stupid, crowded bus instead of a 1h45 cushy train ride.

    Train strikes in France are such a pisstake.

    gotta remeber, skate t-shirts are often low production numbers (puts up price) printed decent weight t-shirts (puts up price) and you have the shops mark up. Like Ciaren said, there still actually quite cheap!

    Agree on the council tax! Then there's water rates and TV licenses...getting free TV for the last few months was all good till the other day but still I guess you have to be very unwilling to pay to actually get fined for not having one!
