I saw some apartments that still had coin-op system for electricity!

They actually used to have the same coin box in the "parlor" for their gas fireplaces!

Odd.

Yeah saw that also, in Scotland. And they are a 'thrifty,' to not be too perjorative here, like Yorkshireman. I could see for a landlord, especially if running short-term leases, people of less reliable character or means, or a B&B the coin-op system might be good. Less waste and high bills. And scam some extra $ from tenants. I wonder why we don't do that in places like Section 8 or cheap motels? I guess the higher initial capital costs?
 I know a guy who worked for our energy utility and his job for decades until retirement was "doing shut offs." A whole salary (and now pension) for shutting people electricity off? Wouldn't a coin-op meters in the poorer parts of town be cheaper? Though now I imagine with "smart meters" you don't need the employee or the coin-op device!!

Don't get me started on the profiteering from poor people in the UK by the energy companies.. I (Very briefly thankfully >:() worked for one. It was disgusting the mark up on coin/token meters as opposed to direct.

I figured it must be some kind of scam. It could be that doing such is illegal here? And that is why I haven't seen it? Not that our energy companies- especially the 'traders,' pipeline operators ,etc- aren't sometimes above manipulating for profits etc, but they take from everybody, not just a specific pensioner or poor person via way downstream coin-ops units (who, I don't know law  there, might also be owned or manipulated by landlord for attention profits?)  ;)
You know various AT&T companies were still leasing landline phones to people (mainly poor, rural, or old) way after it wasn't required. Granted I liked the solid quality of the phones but leased for decades, well over the price of the phone, even retail. And even after broken up into 'Baby Bells." Sometimes into $1000s of dollars over the years.

Let’s not forget the brilliant American inventor Don Amechi who gave the us the telephone.   And while we’re at it let’s remember that it was a Brit who invented the maggot-gagging steak and kidney pie which is a gastronomical atrocity that they’ll never live down having committed.

Speaking of coin-op

John Joseph Houghtaling (pronounced HUFF-tay-ling; November 14, 1916 – June 17, 2009) was an American entrepreneur and inventor who in 1958 invented the Magic Fingers Vibrating Bed, a common feature in mid-priced hotels and motels from the 1960s to the early 1980s.

I don't know what they told you. But in Sacramento there is a railway museum...Makes absolutely no mention or reference to Steam engine invention or railway invention in the UK.  >:(

That's weird.  Do they mention the early smelting of iron when talking about laying the tracks and building bridges, or the first crop cultivation and animal domestication in the dining car exhibition?

There is a certain rational frugality to it, save for the fact some human has to be employed to knock on your door and empty the coin box, but as you say technology and smart meters ought to obviate that.

I shall henceforth think of them in the same idiom as "Magic Fingers" from motels of the past.

Well....they DO have to be emptied by a human so, did you think that wasn't going to be marked up accordingly?

No...this is an exercise in low self esteem Brit tub thumping. This need to claim all even the root elements of anything. Let me guess, they 'invented' the constituent elements of the periodic table too... :o

Four per cent of robberies and three per cent of burglaries solved in 2017
Figures show Rushcliffe in Nottinghamshire has lowest rate of solved crime
Meanwhile the most crimes, 26 per cent, were solved in Uttlesford in Essex

Interesting...but if Trump's in on it then why the constant MSM bash against him. That wouldn't make sense.

Agreed - the trouble with these videos is they try to paint a credible picture while spreading the blame around bit to "liberally"...

Q ANON is silent on this matter today, focusing more on Humid Abedin and Eric Schmidt in NK.

Your political education from Fox News, and right wing AM talk radio has landed you the president that you deserve. A television reality show star who never bothers himself with details, and who makes faux pas continuously. He thought Frederick Douglas was one of his tenants in Trump Tower. And of course it was Canadians who immolated the White House in 1812. Your loyalty is most certainly chained to the fact that he is one of you. He slept through history class too.

He is already congratulating himself on bringing peace to the Korean peninsula. However when Kim doesn't give up his hard won nukes for some burger joints in Pyongyang that mythology will evaporate. The devil is in the details, but details are beyond the scope of your ADD president. Twitter is is the most effective medium for such a mind. Getting off quick without too much effort, but that suits you too. The lazy fuckin amerikkkan TV IQ was made for this prez, and he made for you.

But when the shit hits the fan the maximum dosage will be required!
