Just had meself an argument with my sister because she was telling me the tale of how some old man nearby has dementia and gave away his rent money to people on the street and I said that I wished he had given it to me.

Apparently this means I would be happy for my grandmother to get dementia and do the same thing, ignoring the fact I like my grandmother and don't care about random old men with dementia. I think it blew her mind when I said that to her.

I think a not insignificant number of people who've had a sex change have regretted it afterwards. Something about it turning out the actual underlying issues they have aren't to do with having the old genital switcheroo and they'd manage to delude themselves it was.

/eco/2715 Kill everything in my garden
I've always lived in one of fire-prone tower blocks. I never really ventured outside the concrete jungle, and as such, touching anything green gives me really bad rashes and other weird outbreaks. I don't have to do much for it though, just an anti-histamine and rest gets everything okay again.

I'm now living in a house with a garden. The garden is overgrown and there are bushes and shrubs and whathaveyou everywhere. I want to kill everything so that it looks like the picture.

My plan is to buy loads of weed/pest killers and spray it everywhere. I hope it kills everything.

Any of you lads got any better ways of handling this to share?

Thanks lad.

Sounds like a lot of work/investment. Would it work if I cut down everything and covered the whole garden with a patchwork of tarps held down my massive rocks?

It'll smell rank (really rank) as everything dies off, and then you'll have piles of stinking decomposing shit to get rid of. Fire might help.
How about a (petrol, preferably) strimmer with a disc blade, or brushcutter, and get rid in the green bin over a few months / pay someone to take it away.
Are you sure that a rancid wasteland is better than overgrown? Stuff grows back pretty fast - you'll need a plan. Stuff grows through gravel, too. Unless you really, really hate greenery, you might be better off going with the flow a bit. Maybe lawn instead of gravel? Mowing kills off everything that isn't grass.
Nothing terribly wrong with antihistamines, they stop me bloating like a corpse and sneezing important internal organs out. (Except Benadryl - that shit gives me scary and deeply unpleasant dreams every time I try it).
Grow food. It's like self-packing rice...

Weeds grow like, well, weeds - if there's any amount of soil, something will grow. If you kill off all the weeds, they'll just grow back within a year.

If you really want no plants at all in your garden, you'll need to pave it.

Or fence it and grow pigs. No chance of anything green surviving. Of course, the neighbours won't be pleased, but none of these ideas are crowd-pleasers, and at least OP can have bacon at the end of the year.
Grow things, OP. It's good for the soul / sanity / relationships. Cheaper and easier than ensuring that nothing grows, too.

Satire transcends finding a political solution and just helps us laugh at the absurdities of life.

Cornish Republican Army claims responsibility for fires and damage to Rick Stein restaurant

In an official statement posted in an online blog on June 11, the Cornish Republican Army (CRA) says that it has changed its name from the Cornish National Liberation Army as a result of copycats stealing its name.

A section of the statement reads: "Our organisation has grown and we now have one member who is prepared to pay the ultimate price in the battle for Kernow. She is prepared to sacrifice herself although we shall not ask for this lightly - only as a last measure.

"We did set off a practice device in the old Redruth Brewery and are responsible for the two fires in Truro and the one in Penryn.

We are also responsible for the damage to Stein´s Restaurant. We have removed literally scores of Blood Cross flags and destroyed them. We have also issued warnings to owners of holiday businesses flying the blood cross flag.

We have ceased activities against Stein and Oliver, but our activities against second and expensive English owned homes will continue. We also intend to target those authorities including the EIS police who victimise Cornish people. What have we to fear or lose - nothing.

We note that others are damaging the English Tudor Signs and we support this action. Letters sent to the EIS are wasted efforts. The English have never allowed freedom to any peoples without a fight and although we understand those who believe that freedom can be won through democracy or political means, we do not accept this. What has really been won this past 50 years? - nothing other than an ethnic cleansing of the people of Kernow. We are in no hurry to conduct actions and so these will happen over a period of time.

Whilst we greatly admire and respect the efforts of Cornish nationals who seek change through moderate means, we note that previous members of the IRA are now in power in the North of Ireland showing that there is a place for military action. Therefore we may use direct means to underline the efforts of moderate Cornish nationals."

Google Translate appears to work quite poorly upon closer inspection.

I typed in "Lads, have a word with yourselves" to post here, and it came back as "Парни, поговори с самим собой". Yet when I back translated this into English, it said "Guys, talk to yourself". Nowhere near the same thing. Talk to yourself about this, Google!

I need to replace my toilet seat, and as it's a close-quarters unit it needs to be a top-fix. I foolishly assumed there would be some sort of standard, so bought one that "fits most UK toilets", only even with the fittings at their narrowest they're still about two inches too fucking far apart.

/pol/83192 Pensions thought
So the pension age has been stuck up again, this is due to the argument that more old people, more pension, more money etc etc etc.

However, if people work longer and we have more old people in employment, then aren't they going to block up the job market resulting in less jobs for young people? If there's less jobs for young people they will end up being dependent on the state and claim benefits.

Does this not mean that regardless of what is done it's going to hit one budget or the other, essentially? Either it's going to cost more long term in pension or more long term in benefits and essentially cancel out any gains made.

I'm only putting this out there as a thought I've had for a while and never really heard anyone else putting the point across and I was wondering, is that because I'm making a fucking stupid point?

Yes/no/maybe.

The standard economic theory at the moment is that we'll have a hollowing out of the jobs market, with ultra-high-skilled work on one end and menial work at the other, with very little in between.

Anyone whose work is highly creative and can be scaled via technology will do very well indeed. Being the best or most famous of something will become increasingly valuable. Expect to see a lot more software billionaires and YouTube millionaires. If someone invents a robot chef, then Gordon Ramsay and Heston Blumenthal can personally cook for diners in hundreds of restaurants simultaneously. The best teachers will have classes of thousands linked together by telepresence, or develop AI teaching algorithms based on their techniques.

Many tasks are very low-skilled for a human, but extremely challenging for robots. Sweeping the roads is easy for a machine, but cleaning a toilet is remarkably complex. It's known as Moravec's paradox - tasks that require little conscious effort for humans tend to be fiendishly difficult for AIs. The oldest, most animalistic parts of our brain are phenomenally sophisticated compared to our higher cognitive faculties.

The flipside of Moravec's paradox will be deeply troubling - cognitive tasks that are difficult for humans are relatively easy for AIs. The most sophisticated robots in the world are barely better than a five-year-old at throwing and catching, but an obsolete phone can beat the world champion at chess.

AIs are now doing a lot of routine legal work, because they're immeasurably better than human beings at wading through vast quantities of information. Software by Narrative Science is being used to write business reports for Fortune 500 companies and sports journalism for major newspapers. IBM's Watson is being used to diagnose cancer and provide tax advice. Middle-class office jobs are under far greater threat than semi-skilled manual jobs.

There's also a lot of stuff that we just prefer humans to do. We already have automated coffee machines, but coffee shops are doing a roaring trade. People will pay £3 for a cup of coffee because the experience is designed to make both the customer and the coffee seem special. It's your particular drink, customised the way you want it. The baristas are all young and fashionable. They ask your name and write it on the cup. There's an element of theatre or ceremony involved in making the drink - the gleaming chrome machine, the I need a humour transplant of steam, the artistic little pattern in the foam. Psychology and marketing will play an increasing role in the economy.

Thing is this whole mess is caused by long term population decline so you have the net pool of workers declining as the pension age is raised coupled with inevitable physical and cognitive decline opening up spots as the elderly are moved on to till work. The last part sounds horrible but I figure if you've sorted your outgoings and saved properly it might be pretty nice working a couple of hours everyday at Tesco. You'll probably have change leftover to buy yourself a few 20 bags throughout the week. OAG style.

Personally I'm more concerned that even with a steadily raising pension age across the west the national budget is going to take one hell of a battering. Everyone talks about the impact on healthcare but how about maintaining international peace and security if we continue down the road of the UNSC outsourcing to regional actors or China who has a chequered past on human rights concerns.

Kurzgesagt did a good video on the subject if you would like to know more:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSKi8HfcxEk

Personally I'm a little sceptical on the limits of this thinking. People have shit themselves throughout history over new technology and while at the moment job creation appears to be negative it is very early days to be saying that is now the norm or to get too excited about new technology.

I mean at the very least all those young men with nothing to do and no girlfriends to calm them will start scrapping providing a boom in jobs for our noble arms industry.

>The reason nobody uses automated coffee machines is a question of hygiene and fresh ingredients which I don't see a robot handling anytime soon.

Solved problems. A modern super-automatic espresso machine produces coffee in exactly the same way as a barista using traditional equipment. You pour milk into a refrigerated canister, whole coffee beans into a hopper and the machine does the rest. A customer chooses and customises their drink on a touchscreen; it would be a trivial job to integrate contactless payment. On a functional level, any coffee shop could run with a single member of staff and a bank of super-automatic machines, but they don't, because it feels cheap.

>the problem is when you apply economies of scale for things like education it soon becomes less than ideal

I think you're under-estimating the rate of progress in AI and the innate advantages of machine intelligence. Clearly it will take some time to develop the natural language processing technology required to teach in a traditional way. When we do develop that level of technology (and it's very much a when rather than an if), the machines have some immense advantages over human teachers. Every pupil in the class can get intensive, one-on-one teaching. The AI can watch every pupil's efforts on every task, quickly identifying and addressing difficulties and misconceptions. The AI is endlessly patient, endlessly supportive and available 24/7; machines don't get tired, bored, frustrated, or develop an irrational dislike for someone. AI teachers can all work from a shared database, so they're all equally expert in every subject and have learned from every mistake made by every AI teacher.

We're already deploying AI psychotherapists. They're very crude compared to a human therapist, but they have a lot of innate advantages. You can speak to the therapist at any time and don't have to wait for an appointment. The AI can use data from every single patient to guide its responses; for example, it can identify subtle patterns of behaviour and interaction that might indicate an elevated risk of suicide or self-harm. Patients feel very comfortable talking to an AI, because they know that the machine is incapable of judging them. AI psychotherapy won't be a complete replacement for traditional psychotherapy any time soon, but it's an extremely powerful adjunct and could easily replace the lower-intensity interventions provided by services like IAPT.

UK plans age verification for porn websites from 2018

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-40628909

People in the UK will have to prove they are 18 before being allowed to access pornography websites from next year, the government is to announce.
Websites will be legally required to install age verification controls by April 2018 as part of a move to make the internet safer for children.
Users may be asked to provide credit card details, as gambling websites do.
Companies breaking the rules set out in the Digital Economy Act face being blocked by their internet provider.


VPNs at the ready, lads.

Meanwhile, across the pond, one Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, 70, has just celebrated a "dark market web place takedown". That's the sort of people that are running the show, and that is why we can't have nice things.

So what happens to britfa.gs?

Given how purple hasn't even got around to implementing https yet, I can't see him setting up credit-card age verification. There is no way this site will be ignored by them - all it will take is a couple of reports from trolls to get us on the list. So I expect "adult content" (porn, discussion of sex, drugs, etc) will be banned from here.

It, and a million other sites shut down, porn is no longer normalised and kids are no longer traumatised. Unicorns, fluffy bunnies, and Theresa May's sex tape remains hidden.

Or VPNs abound, kids buy USB sticks full of filth from corner shops and pass it around.
Less technical pornhounds join my not-a-VPN redirector from >>26004 , hope I'm honourable and not logging their depravity for those nice YMCA chaps, and carry on with their pleasures.
I'm so looking forward to Tumblr, Facebook, Wikipedia, Youtube etc. all becoming unreachable because there's filth on them. The mental gymnastics needed to exempt them is going to be a joy to watch, after they collectively flip Theresa the bird.

/emo/23560 Minor angst and existential dread, Mk. I
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.

Been on OKC for many years but I'm an ugly, slightly overweight (but not obese) autist with crippling social anxiety and hence completely unable to get a conversation going with anyone. I barely ever get replies. I hoped it would take the biggest hurdle for me out of the whole dating thing, which is telling if someone is interested in you, but all it seems to have done is confirm that no-one is actually interested.

Sage for the wrong thread to be saying this in.

A friend of a friend who stayed with me for a while but has now left somehow accidentally got a credit card he ordered sent to my address.

Is it okay to hand it over to him or does this sound like it might be some sort of fraud where I'd be accountable for the debt?

Any recommendations for books/resources on cyber security? The recent hackings got me curious, and I have been reading around it since. Something more under the hood type of book for a noive.

Also I picked up Python again. I learn best by doing small projects. Any resources for something like that would be appreciated too.

This should work, there are copies of some of them in epub and pdf because I don't know what format would be preferred or even available to download so I got them both. The 'Malware Analyst's Cookbook and DVD' does not have the DVD .iso included because it was the same size again as the rest of the others together. I'm sure you can find it if you want it.

Not sure where better to upload it, either. Let me know if the files are corrupt or anything.

It might be a lottery but it's still a big risk. I have security clearance, if I get a criminal record that's me and my company fucked; I'd rather not risk it, thanks. I realise that I may be an edge case.

Actually I think you and I might be talking at cross-purposes. I'm specifically talking about the risk of multi-sig transactions on EIM and AB; I regularly sent coin directly to Agora with no worry at all exactly because I knew that my safety was being taken care of in terms of specific plausible deniability.

Exclusive: Dutch Cops on AlphaBay ‘Refugees’

>Following today’s breaking news about U.S. and international authorities taking down the competing Dark Web drug bazaars AlphaBay and Hansa Market, KrebsOnSecurity caught up with the Dutch investigators who took over Hansa on June 20, 2017. When U.S. authorities shuttered AlphaBay on July 5, police in The Netherlands saw a massive influx of AlphaBay refugees who were unwittingly fleeing directly into the arms of investigators. What follows are snippets from an exclusive interview with Petra Haandrikman, team leader of the Dutch police unit that infiltrated Hansa.

It's because he's been there since about 1930. He started off on the equivalent salary of £15,000 but it's been increased each year due to inflation and length of service. That's all it is. Compounding.

If you add in employers national insurance and pension contributions then the cost to the licence fee payer will be in excess of half a million.
