The old thread is well over 30MB, so I think we're due a new one.

Some cunt threw a firecracker in front of my bike today. If I hadn't seen the little scrote and his little scrote mates running I wouldn't have noticed until it was too late.

I decided to make myself some carbonara, and because I'm an idiot and it was 2am, I dropped the yolks into the pan at the end.

So now it's all curdled, it's like eating a spaghetti omelette. I'm annoyed with myself and a bit ashamed.

I've been properly setting up some turntables for someone (calibrating speed, tracking force, anti-skate, balance, etc). I decided to do a little research first into it all, having never really used a turntable past my mum's old Waltham one, and the amount of shite online from vinyl enthusiasts is infuriating. Talking about the "metallic" sound of digital, how vinyl is "warmer", and all this other snake oil shit.

Most albums recorded post-1980 were recorded and/or mastered digitally anyway, so you're just listening to digital sound impressed on an analogue medium, anyway.

On the other hand, people buy into vinyl for the sake of it, buying the cheapest, shittiest turntables (a la Crosley Cruiser), which sound like fucking shit - so what's the point? Just get a decent pair of headphones and download some V0 MP3 and it'll sound ten times better than a ceramic stylus through the cheapest possible speakers.

That, and how fucking expensive it is.

>but the lobster had laid eggs inside her which had hatched and the baby lobsters were making their way out.

Kind of unlikely. Lobster eggs need a steady supply of fresh oxygen to live. And they need to be immersed in water constantly so they won't dry out. Even if you accept that the moist environment inside a vagina will prevent the lobster eggs from drying out, there still isn't much oxygen constantly coming in from the outside.

So I call BS on that one.

If lobsterlet blood has more affinity for oxygen than people blood, won't it just work, snaffling oxygen from its surroundings? IIRC, lobsters don't use proper haemoglobin, they've got some other stuff, so it might go that way? Or, given the size, won't it just diffuse in?
I think I'd worry more about temperature than oxygen.
Not that this story doesn't reek of BS.

That, too. Temperatures inside the uterus should be pretty close to a human body's normal core temperature, and lobsters usually live in temperate waters that don't go much above 20-24 °C. At least not the familiar North Atlantic species that you get to buy in stores most of the time. Maybe some tropical species exist that can handle water temperatures of 30 °C, but again... a lady's private parts just don't seem like a good environment for lobster eggs to develop.

I want to check my understanding of science is correct.

The universe is continually growing and expanding. This is evidenced by the fact that human beings in the past were much shorter than they are today. Therefore, it stands to reason that this continued expansion will mean it won't be uncommon in the centuries to come for people to be around the 7ft mark. Eventually we will all become giants, relative to today.

Enforce the will of A11ah and allow us to beat our wives for disobedience

Men are in charge of women by [right of] what A11ah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband's] absence what A11ah would have them guard. But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance - [first] advise them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and [finally], strike them. But if they obey you [once more], seek no means against them. Indeed, A11ah is ever Exalted and Grand.

I've been out of this game for a good few years now, but I'm back. I'm surprised at how much the subculture has changed. I guess this is partly down to growing global legalisation and decriminalization.

Quality has improved and the choice of product has improved massively. It's so nice to be able to choose wether to get a buzzy sativa or more stoney indica.

I really don't like amnesia and silver haze, because they make me very anxious. However I do like some sativa such as JH and tangie but without a wide choice its hard to get one which works for me.

The other thing which has changed in recent times is the rise of portable vaporizers. I tried a volcano once in Amsterdam in 2003 but that was quite an exotic experience and not something I could have ever afforded at the time.
I now have a few of my own, butane and battery powered. My god are they efficient. I used to blow through a Q in a week or two. If I only use my Vapcap M i can make a Q last at least 3 months now.

The mere fact I can buy Sativa CBD pills for my chronic (heh) joint paint nowadays means the amount of opiates I take is minimal, but it's an expensive game. I strongly suspect Phizer might put a stop to medicinal use on a large scale in this country, purely because it would interupt their monopoly on the pain relief market.

/emo/27337 'He's got to go'
Ultimatum from the missus. Our 5 month old puppy ran off, she spent 20 minutes chasing him down. Final straw, apparently.
She's livid.
Trying to work out what to do. Losing her temper and smacking him around is imho unacceptable. He's just a puppy, being a puppy. Why the fuck can't she see that (and keep him on a lead when he can escape, rather than allowing him to get into situations which piss her off so much. It's as if she likes the fight, or is too dumb to see the possibility?)
Granted, he can be a pain in the arse.
Ah, fuck's sake. I dunno. If this turns into a 'me or the dog' situation, I don't know which way I'll jump. I can't handle her temper.
Pic somewhat related.

OP here.
I didn't see what she did to the dog, so was relying on what she told me, in her pissed off state.
In calmer circumstances, she said she caught him, brought him home, smacked his arse, and that was it. I'd say that was the wrong order, at the least, but it wasn't what I'd been imagining.
Puppy is seriously fine. Curled up with her on the sofa watching some bollocks or other on telly. He's not traumatised, still loves us both, like only a 6 month puppy can.
He now goes to daycare on days when I'm not working from home, so she doesn't get ratty about being disturbed all the time. He _loves_ daycare. Things are good.
I was a tad low when I posted, and it probably shows in the posting.

There's no more accusing the dog of deliberately pissing her off, and, because (sane) reasons, I believe she really believes this.
We muddle on, and life's pretty good for all of us. Lots of other things to worry about, but this, I think, has passed.

Telltale Games is laying off most of its staff, canceling upcoming games

>"Today Telltale Games made the difficult decision to begin a majority studio closure following a year marked by insurmountable challenges," Telltale said in a statement. "Telltale will issue further comments regarding its product portfolio in the coming weeks."

RIP The Walking Dead Final Season.

What I think has probably happened here is they've overstretched themselves and people have become burnt out with the genre, there was a telltale game for every franchise going a few years ago. I bitter loss if you were invested in anything they've yet to finish though.

Never played one of them and didn't really see the appeal. From what my friends tell me, the choices you do get to make never make much difference to the actual outcome, it just changes a few names and faces. As somebody's already said, I can't see what you're gaining over just watching it on Youtube.

It was obviously the kind of hype and momentum bubble that was going to burst eventually. See also: Battle royale games. Two or three years from now we'll be saying "Hey, remember Fortnite? What happened to that?"

I think Fortnite is the WoW of this generation, PUBG being generally shit and the like of Activision and EA jumping on the bandwagon will see a few high profile flops in the genre, but Fortnite will survive. The amount of MMOs that tried to catch lightning in a bottle and emulate WoW and failed is astronomical. Yet it survives.

Telltale should have let other companies join the market space so that they could have shown they were the place to go to get your PAC fix, but instead they took on to much and most likely undercut other companies at a loss to monopolise the market and failed as a result.

Bit lower working class though. I grew up in the 80s as well and we had hot showers every morning, and could take hot baths whenever we felt like it.

The only time our parents would get a little upset was when we took overly long showers and were told to stop wasting water. The same applied when we wanted to take a full bath instead of a shower every day or every other day.

This post has actually reminded me of some of the less than luxurious living conditions we had when my insane dad chucked us all out when I was a wee lad. I remember living in a particularly shitty bedsit for a few months where the avocado green shower didn't work properly, must've been in the early 90s. As I was only small it was more than enough for me to wash my bits over a washing up bowl full of hot water out the kettle and then wash my face and brush my teeth etc. in the sink. I think I remember worrying about going to school like that thinking that people would be able to smell that we didn't have a proper bathroom anymore but no one really noticing. It also didn't have a washing machine and my mum, God bless her, washed all our clothes in the kitchen sink and then put them through some kind of manual clothes spinny machine that looked like a pedal bin to get the water out before hanging them all from the doorways to dry. Mums, eh? They really do hold the world together when you're young don't they. Go ring your mum and tell her you love her.

Why would I rent I chainsaw? I've got plenty...
While I'm pretty gung ho about taking trees down, these are outside my comfort zone. They're big, and will drop onto a road that has real traffic, or wipe out buildings and fences, depending on which way they go.
I'd have to climb them and do them in sections, and I'm not a creature of the air.
For scale, the fence is 6 foot, the green tarp thing is the remains of my woodshed, and the fallen branch managed to hit the building on the left on its way down.

It's certainly possible. If you're in some post-soviet part of the world, it'd not be as surprising, since Lada did make rotary cars for a while - whether or not anyone is still interested in maintaining them, who knows, but a place tooled out to fix those could service an RX8, even if it's the only one they've ever seen, it's still basically the same thing.

If you're anywhere else, fuck knows.

All this talk of Mazda, and I completely forgot that they did showcase an RX9 concept a couple of years ago, and told us it was going to be in full production. I'll probably end up buying one, despite the risks.

I've never heard about a rotary engine Lada IRL though. Read about one, right. But that's the only amount of exposure I've had to it.
I don't recall how many of them were made and how good or bad the engine was. My father has a load of old Soviet car magazines in his garage, maybe I'll flick through them for information.

Mango season is picking up. The Iranian greengrocer not far from here had good sized Brazilian mangoes today for £1.50 a piece. Fully ripe and fucking delicious.

I honestly don't know how they survive. They sell 40-pound watermelons for 8 quid a piece during the summer months, and now they've got some of the best mangoes I've seen in a long time for a quid and a half. Even my local M&S here rarely has mangoes this good.

Or maybe it is because they are fully ripe. Maybe the big chains don't buy up produce like this because of the limited shelf life. I'm indeed not sure the one I just had would have lasted much longer, because it really was at peak ripeness. Maybe my Iranian greengrocer gets them at a discount that way, from wherever it is that they get their groceries.

Lads, I've been having a think.

The modern world means that you can stream whatever form of entertainment you want directly into your living room; sports, films, TV, you name it. I think we need to stop looking at streaming in a purely digital sense and start looking at it in a physical sense.

Imagine having a tap which means you can stream whatever you want that can flow down the pipes. You want some custard? There's a tap for that. You want some mashed potato? There's a tap for that. You want some gravy? There's a tap for that. We need to move from apps to taps and pipes. It would be revolutionary. Imagine the carbon footprint saved from lorries no longer having to deliver these loads to the supermarket and then for individual shoppers to go one-by-one to buy it and take it home. The likes of warm custard cooked en masse in one central bulk must surely be more efficient than the piecemeal approach of innumerable households cooking meals themselves on hobs and in ovens.

Obviously Big Shop will kick up a fuss as we cut out the middleman and there will be the initial outlay of creating a national network of pipes, but the long-term benefits would far outweigh it. It would be the next true industrial revolution.

>and they have to explain why they're sticking a second needle in your spinal column.

I got various injections into my spinal column following a severe lumbar disc hernia.

One of the most fucking unpleasant experiences of my life. Not because it would have been painful, which it wasn't in all honesty. The injections felt like a mosquito bite on my skin at the most. But just the fact that somebody was poking around my spinal cord with a needle, plus having been made aware of the possible albeit quite rare consequences of a failed procedure.

So it was really more a psychological thing. Well and one time, the orthopaedic surgeon who was administering the injections actually did slip a little bit and got a little close to the nerve, which made my leg twitch in a very peculiar way and then it felt weird for about three or four hours after the procedure. He apologised but said the effect would only be temporary. Still a fucking unpleasant thing to go through. I think I had four injections in total over the course of about six weeks.

/poof/5793 Getting me, and yourself laid more: a case study of James Hawver
I couldn't decide if this belonged here, but I think this board is underused and you should be the change you want to see in the world.

Essentially I want to discover the secret to online dating and what if anything men can do to improve their numbers.

James Hawver the most popular heterosexual man in New York in 2014 on okcupid when asked for his secret he said 'just never swipe left' utterly fucking vapid. This is the wisdom of a man who according to the article " In the three and a half hours we spend talking, the phone will ping 47 times: On Tinder, 35 women will match with him; 12 women on ­OKCupid­ will either ­message or favorite him." Clearly James doesn't know why he was so popular, or wasn't telling. It all points to cliché for male online dating advice "step 1: Be attractive, Step 2: don't be unattractive" essentially a statement about how the odds are already stacked but are they? what makes someone more and less attractive and can we change it? and what is the difference between what men want, men think women want, what women think they want and what they actually want. Given the absurd numbers I think James is the objective ideal to measure from Somewhere hidden in his profile is the secret to dating and I want to crack it

First of all the obvious raw numbers.

Height: He is 5'8 and lists his height as 5'9

Slightly surprising I mean he isn't a dwarf but if height really matters and taller = better you'd presume someone else taller to be doing better than him.

Money: real-estate agent (never mentioned on the profile)

>if you're not, then getting your dick wet is likely not the remedy

This is such a crucial point. I had a mate who got himself sorted out and finally landed a proper girlfriend at the grand old age of 27 only to immediately destroy the relationship with all the insecurities and misery he had refused to deal with thus far because just hitting the gym for about a year was enough for him to superficially seem more 'normal'.

He wound up dropping out of uni (for the third time) and getting sectioned when it all fell apart because he simply wasn't equipped to deal with it emotionally.

It's been done to death, but unless you're just looking for a bit of action, the best advice is going to be just be yourself. Exaggerate a little in the profile, and put a half-decent picture on it. If you're not that interesting, work on becoming more interesting, if only because you'll probably enjoy life a bit more in general. If you'rea bit of a cunt, work on being less of a cunt.

If you are just looking for some quick action, it may be easier to just pay a professional.

If you just fancy a laugh, go look up Super Seducer 2 on YouTube for some obvious advice, like don't say you'll cut her family into tiny pieces of she won't sleep with you. If you want to see the fragility of the PUA ego, I can heartily recommend the "call Mahmud" option.

We tend to have a lot of repeated threads here, but I also get the feeling people don't tend to post in /emo/ unless it's a big issue.

With this in mind I suggest that we have a thread for stuff that's got you down a bit and you need to get off your chest, without it being major enough to make an entire thread devoted to it. We can also use it as a go-to for minor relationship advice, work problems, social drama, and things like that.

Everyone gets down from time to time, let's put some Sisters of Mercy on and wallow together for a while.

It is pretty difficult to make a short, succinct post here. It feels like if you're putting in the effort to make a post, you may as well flesh the thing out. I

often find myself exploring every avenue of thought as I type out a post, and going back to re-structure and rephrase parts. Needless to say this is not something I'd do elsewhere, but it's part of what I find therapeutic about posting here. It's meditative, reflective almost.

I've often thought that the way I post here is comparable to what a diary would have been for people in the black and white days. You reflect and gather your thoughts, but with the added advantage that others can respond and give you different perspectives to consider. I try not to use the site as a blog, of course, but then again we have developed to a point that many posters will remember and pick up on things others have mentioned, even in some cases where they are not explicitly referring to it.

It has both benefits and drawbacks I suppose.

This is very true. I've found I can genuinely identify certain posters just from the way they've written, even if they're not talking about something specific, and I'm sure I have my tells too. This familiarity is surely why I keep coming here, but it's also probably what puts newcomers off. I make a point to stay off /sentry/ until I've replied to posts, but when I do go on I'm almost always right about who I thought I was reading.

Maybe that's just me, though. I'd be curious to see if someone could intuit who I am from this post or point to another one of my posts, or if it's just my autism uniquely sharp powers of deduction.

A few years back I realised I was quite easily traceable through always posting images relating to pretty much a single quite specific topic and made a conscious effort to save a wider variety of random crap into the junk folder on my desktop. It would be really obvious for example if the chap who constantly needs to be reminded not to forgive his abusive parents in /emo/ and always posts a picture of goulash and the lad posting in /A/ about hating every second of his life that he is sober and always posts a picture of goulash are probably the same bloke.

(Using my own issues as an example with a made-up image topic obviously)

It's important to bear these kinds of things in mind especially with social conservatism threatening to make a comeback in a big way. Simply the fact that I hate my parents would have been enough for them to completely destroy me until frighteningly recently. Lobotomised, electro-shock treatment, locked up and forgotten about forever. Be careful lads.

ITT: Weird dreams you've had lately.

I actually dreamed last night that I was in Australia, visiting the two blokes from the Foster's adverts in their beach hut. Sure enough, they gave me a Foster's, and I said "cheers, guys"... and then one of them said to me "oh no mayt, we don't say cheers heere. We say 'You little ripper!'"

Quite bizarre... has this dream got any deeper meaning, or have I just been watching too much telly lately?

Sometimes things that your body experiences during sleep can affect your dreams. Maybe you were lying on a sharp object like a needle or drawing pin or something.

A while ago, I had a dream that I was at a race track and heard the sound of roaring engines all around me. But then when I woke up, I noticed that there was a tree surgeon in the 60-foot birch tree right across the street from my bedroom window, taking off a few of the top branches with a chainsaw. The sound of the chainsaw must have caused me to dream that I was at that race track.

I went out for a walk with a couple of people I supposedly work with and one of them gave me a cig (I don't smoke IRL). When we got back I threw the cig in the bin without fully stubbing it out properly and it caught fire. I kept soaking towels in the sink and throwing them on the fire but it wouldn't go out. I had to interview a couple of people for jobs in the afternoon and I had to tell each of them "don't mind the bins" and play it off like having a bin on fire in your place of work was one of the most natural things in the world.

It was a plastic bin and in the kitchen. Why I'd take job candidates through the kitchen is anyone's guess.

I can sort of understand why I had that dream; I'm a bit apprehensive about someone I have to interview next week because he's roughly double my age and he's got far more industry experience than I have. "Let's talk about what you were doing before I was even born."

It only takes a couple of hours for a touch-typist to adjust to a new keyboard. I use a swanky mechanical keyboard on my desktop, but I'm only a few WPM slower on a moderately crappy laptop keyboard.

Personally, I think it's madness that schools spend so much time teaching handwriting, but touch-typing isn't on the national curriculum. I can't remember the last time I hand-wrote anything longer than a post-it note, but I spend the greater part of my working day typing. It staggers me that there are professional people who hunt-and-peck with two fingers - it seems like an absurd handicap in a modern office.

I don't really understand how anyone my age can't touch type. I've been sat at computers since I was about 10. Never had a single typing lesson, I've just done two decades of practice.

I'm not perfect, I don't use all ten digits, but I can touch type, and faster than my mother who was a trained typist.

I wrote a 10,000 word graded paper in roughly 12 hours a couple of years go using between 4 and 6 digits, but I don't have to look which speeds up my typing greatly. Not exactly touch typing per se, but defo good enough.

My blind Gran is a trained touched typist, used to do data entry at a bank and uses a Braille keyboard and she is lightning. She can even do it on a laptop keyboard despite never having worked with one.

I got into a bit of a fight with a tipper truck today and my car lost.
Damage isn't too bad, I knocked my bumper half-off which broke some of the mounting points, and there's a bit of a dent on the wheel arch, but no other damage. The other guys truck didn't even have a scratch.
Mines 10 years old and I was thinking of getting a new one soon anyway. I've decided not to go to the insurance and just try and trade it in part exchange. Or take it into a body shop for a more permanent repair than shoving it back into place and cable-tieing it.

Am I being a complete mong by doing this?

You're a complete mong if you can't afford it. If you can, then go for it. You're asking the question like part exchange and go for something else is an option, so if you think you can upgrade to something in a better state of repair with its attendant lower maintenance costs then go for that.

I'm just being a bit overly paranoid about finding that dealers will refuse to accept it in part exchange as it is, and other silly things.

The vans owner has agreed that there's no damage and is okay with it going unreported.

Most part-exchange cars end up at auction. The price the dealer offers you is partly based on what they think it'll sell for and partly a discount on the list price of the new car. As long as it's worth something, they'll take it as PX even if it's a bit tatty. They're usually more generous towards the end of the month, because they've got sales targets to meet.

It's also worth pointing out that you'll usually get a better deal by selling privately.
