/shed/14201 Wordfilter request
Requesting a wordfilter for 'nonce' being used as a generic insult in thread after thread...it's like the Dianne Abbott thing, it feels like someone is trying to force a meme and it's a bit annoying. I mean fair dos if it's actually a thread about Rolf Harris or something but it seems to be a default response to unrelated posts

(A good day to you Sir!)

ENG cameras make quite a lot of compromises. You want a fast parfocal lens with a very wide zoom range, but you don't have a lot of weight to play with. There are always some optical compromises, especially at the extremes of the zoom range. Studio lenses are optically superb, but they're absolutely massive lumps of glass.

You're better off getting a slightly substandard shot with a small and light camera than missing the shot with a studio-quality boat anchor. The BBC are now using the iPhone for some audio and video news gathering - the quality is just about acceptable and the workflow is extremely fast.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/academy/journalism/article/art20160420122405469

A lot of weirdness can happen in the signal chain, which is ludicrously complex for a live broadcast. There are multiple codecs and standards converters in the chain between the camera in Downing Street and your TV, all of which introduce some level of artifacts.

So you haven't noticed how people talk about Corbyn constantly, or voting for Corbyn, even though they probably don't live in North Islington? And therefore he presumably had no relivance to how people voted in the general election outside of that area.

Yes I have. I've also noticed how other people talk about how they hate Corbyn but vote for the Labour candidate anyway because they like their MP or hate the Tories even more.

Party leaders certainly have relevance to national voter trends. That doesn't translate to "a vote for an MP is as good as a vote for a leader", though, that's total bollocks. To get a sense of how favourable people's opinions of party leaders are you have to, you know, actually ask them a question about it.

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.

The doctor tried to tell me I was depressed for these reasons, so I had to remind him that not only am I already on an antidepressant for anxiety, I suffer from chronic back and joint pain and told him if he gave me better painkillers I'd shower more than was absolutely necessary to keep my wife from leaving me.

I shaved recently for the first time in about a year and had to use scissors on it first, because I was going to a wedding. Up until that point I couldn't be arsed because it really hurt my arm and wrist and my wife liked it... for a bit. She started offering to shave it for me, but I was too proud, but eventually conceded the moustache because she threatened to stop having sex with me so she was trimming it with a beard trimmer every time it got "scratchy".

It's all about perspective, both of those things apply to me but I'm pretty OK mentally.

The nurses have good chat and tolerance for swearing, first time I went they gave me a form with pictures of the body and told me to highlight were it hurt. I highlighted the whole thing and handed it back to him and he was just like "...fair enough. You want to sit in my desk chair, these seat are shit?" I sat in the chair.

I'm not sure if this even exists, but can someone recommend me some sort of free organiser/calendar application. That has an absurd level of customisation of repeating cycles and an ability to integrate in scripts and other applications to run automatically, potentially other 'smart objects'.

I've decided that I want to attempt to structure my life to an absurd level, where the computer will play music playlists where they left off at fixed times, turn on lights, message my phone to tell me it is time to brush my teeth, tell me every 3 days to practice coding for an hour, every 10 days tell me to cut my nails. Tell me when to order my shopping, when I need to preheat the oven based on the exact mean I’m having that night to always eat at 8 o’clock. Budget time for my exercise routine that scales up depending on how far along the routine I am and previous data I’ve fed it. And that if I need to amend the process there are various options as to how to handle that.

Does this exist, does anything even come close?

Theresa May is due to make a statement in Downing Street at 11.15am amid speculation the Prime Minister could call an early general election.

Mrs May is scheduled to make her statement immediately following a meeting of her Cabinet. The BBC's political editor Laura Kuenssberg confirmed the news and said such a statement is "only normally used for most serious moments".

Downing Street is yet to comment on what Mrs May will say. Statements outside Number 10 are highly rare and usually reserved for only the most significant announcements.

The last time Mrs May spoke to the nation in front of the famous black door was after she succeeded David Cameron as PM. Meanwhile, Mr Cameron used the setting to announce his resignation in the immediate aftermath of the EU referendum result.

> I also remember the IMF crisis of '76.
So you'll remember that actually, we never needed to take out a loan at all - right?
https://www.ft.com/content/11484844-b565-11df-9af8-00144feabdc0?mhq5j=e1
>The reality is more complicated. The situation at the end of 1976 was not uniquely dire. The government had already made two applications to the IMF at the end of 1975, with far less publicity, and the balance of payments had been in much greater arrears then. Healey later claimed that the Treasury had grossly overestimated the public sector borrowing requirement, the key figure used during the IMF crisis, and that if he had been given accurate figures, he would not have had to ask for the loan.

Also more interestingly our balance of payments has been even worse (I think we've had a surplus once in the early 2000s or late 90s.) since then. Funny to think it used to be a major political concern, to the point of it sometimes being the explanation for Wilson losing '70.

Yes, I am enough of a wanker to take a detour from smirking at pre-election predictions of wipeout to dig up trivia. So fight me.

Doesn't look like it. Seems like the bumper has taken the brunt of it (as it's supposed to) and there's just a bit of a dent, unless there's been some structural damage underneath that we can't see, which the assessors will figure out. Assuming it is just what we see, that would only be a write-off if the van has depreciated to the point where it was practically worthless before the event.

A new bumper end cap costs £7. I can't really tell from the photos whether the wheel arch trim needs replacing. If it's still in one piece it should go back on with some new retaining clips, which are about £2 for 10. If it's broken, you can get a replacement from a breaker for £35, possibly less locally. The bodywork damage isn't worth fixing, as it'll all be covered by trim.

Looking at the state of the other vehicle, I'm genuinely impressed at how well the Transit Connect has held up.

Brave sex abuse victim waives anonymity to reveal how BBC pervs Julie and Tony Wadsworth groomed him as a schoolboy and lured him into woods for sex

Recalling the first time he saw her, he said: “One Saturday morning while we were out playing on our bikes me and my mates were ­confronted with a woman old enough to be our mother running through the woods with no knickers on asking us if we wanted to play and have sex with her.

“People must think it’s every schoolboy’s dream but it wasn’t right. We were gobsmacked, and to make it even more weird her husband was egging her on. We tried to treat it all as banter and a big joke. But looking back they knew we were schoolboys and what they did was wrong.”

He and a friend had spotted the couple in a park in September 1992. Darren said: “A lad on his bike rode past and said we should have a look at the ‘streaker with her tits out’ in the next clearing.

“We thought it was a joke but there she was with a scruffy-looking bloke. We were staring at her but trying to seem not to look. I’d seen some dirty books and she looked like something out of one of them.

They asked us if there was anywhere we could ‘have a play’ and we walked about a mile with them to the Outwoods near the golf course.

“Me and my mate were trembling with excitement and didn’t know what to expect. Then she told us we could do it one at a time. My mate went behind the bush with her first but was back within minutes saying he was scared because the husband had a camera and he thought he was taking photos. Then I heard her shout it was my turn. I was nervous but she called me over next and she was sitting down naked with the mac open.”

Before the sex session started Darren said Mrs Wadsworth — who never gave her name — insisted her husband go for a walk because his camera was “making the boys jittery”.

I will take a guess and say because they are centered around women. Women are the ones who plan, arrange and carry out Western wedding ceremonies. In eskimo cultures, from what I witnessed, a wedding is more about parents giving their daughter away to their future husband. That in itself is not without problems if we judge it by our modern Western standards, because it isn't about women choosing their future husband, but about parents, as I said, giving away their daughter. Anyway, the parents of the bridal couple are generally in charge of the festivities and all the planning. And they seem to get on with it very pragmatically. Or maybe their cultures and traditions just leave very little room for variation, that's also a possibility.

But put white middle class Western brides in charge of a wedding, as they are when "Western" people marry, and what you end up with is a whole weekend's worth of drama, daftness, silly wedding reception games, atrocious speeches, and guests quietly contemplating shooting themselves in the head. And that isn't counting the months of drama beforehand which everybody around the bride will have to endure. Who sits next to who becomes an unsolvable puzzle, colour combinations of table cloths and carnations suggested by the groom nearly end in the couple's separation, and disagreements about the font on the wedding invitations will continue far into the wedding night itself. I actually witnessed all of this myself with various friends and their weddings.

It's in our culture. 50 years of women's emancipation, and women still grow up with the vision in their head of what their wedding day will be like. By the time the day comes, they will have had anywhere from 20 to 30 years to contemplate it. While guys really only start thinking about their wedding day when they have met somebody who is hell bent on tying the knot, when you think about it.

So women will have had all this time, all these decades to prepare for that one big day of their lives. And yet, it turns out completely shit.

I agree with you on some parts but your whole analysis comes from a hateful place. There's a bit of trout farming in all of that.

I think the main issue is the lack of input from family, friends, and most importantly, the groom himself. Western weddings are selfish. I have been to an Arab wedding and a Somali one too. The whole festivities felt like it was celebrating something greater than just a single woman marrying a single man. Even I felt like it was special and I'm not part of their community.

So, in short, western weddings are shite because it is design to be very selfish and it is devoid of anything meaningful. That's why you see all the silly mess. It is meant to fill a cultural void.

I also blame alcohol. We just can't seem to be ourselves, a normal human being, without being smashed.

British porn innit. We're never going to compete with the glamorous fantasy of two perfectly toned Americans shagging each other senseless by the swimming pool of a Beverly Hills mansion. We go in exactly the opposite direction - normal people having normal sex in normal places. We're the nation that invented Reader's Wives and dogging, after all. Even when we do some absurd parody, it's made to seem attainable. Our porn is like a Ken Loach film with cumshots.

The kind of slags who'd suck you off behind the bins at Wetherspoons. Women who look like your aunty Pauline going on a shagging spree after a messy divorce. Blokes that really are plumbers and cabbies. UKIP candidates for county council. Travelodges. Terraced houses with brown corduroy sofas. A Vauxhall Astra with beaded seat covers parked in a lay-by. A pale thigh with a Tweety Pie tattoo. Bad puns.

Our most iconic porn star has his own line of car floor mats. He was the drummer for a one-hit wonder in the 80s. He did a nine month stretch for obscenity in the 90s. His son was the annoying lad in Outnumbered.

If it doesn't all make you proud to be British, I despair.

There's this thin sheet of wood or cardboard on the back of cabinets or drawers usually. The bit that separates from the back of your closet when you stuff too much stuff into it. The bit you might have to hammer to make it stick to the furniture again.

What is it called? The one on the back of my drawer got wet and I rip it off and chucked it out, but obviously I would need a replacement. I have been googling different combination of words and I have not been lucky. What is that piece called so that I can buy it off eBay and do it myself. Please lads.

The MDF backboard is to stop the actual solid wood panels cracking under natural expansion and contraction in the case of changing temperatures in the room in which it's placed. It's not a penny-pinching tactic — it's an evolution of the design.

Yes, but people had these problems back then as well, didnt they? And yet, they chose solid wood for the backs of cupboards.

The backs of good quality cabinets (and the bases of drawers) would be fitted into a slightly loose groove, with a few millimetres of space at either end for expansion.

So the stud finder tells you what kind of wall it is, right?

Telling the difference between a plasterboard and brick wall is perfectly straightforward - you just knock on the wall to see if it's hollow.

The stud finder detects differences in density. If you wave it along a plasterboard wall, it'll beep when there's a wooden beam behind the plasterboard. You want to screw into the wooden beam rather than the plasterboard, because the wood is far stronger. Most stud finders will also detect cables and pipes, which you obviously don't want to drill into.

The Liberal Democrats have started a consultation process on what the parties next manifesto should look like. Its open to non-members and I thought everyone could benefit from you lads giving views.

https://libdems.getfeedback.com/r/jKh47Fw8

It asks an interesting question: What would you spend £2 billion on?

I thought about putting the money towards adult education programs. Things like the Open University are fundamentally good ideas that gives people who otherwise can't study because of career and family commitments the chance to learn new skills and achieve lifelong learning. It sounds non-controversial but I'm sure there is ample chance to start a cunt-off on that idea.

Another interesting question is that it asks whether the Lib Dems should focus on staying in the European Union or on what Brexit should now be. An interesting option given the party is fervently pro-EU and I wonder what will fill the vacuum if its abandoned.

Similar backwards views as in she was the first prominent Tory to support Out4Marriage?


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTsXoNkiY3g

Similar backwards views that she, together with Gideon and Hague, wrote a letter in The Telegraph in 2013 telling other Tories to back same sex marriage?

Similar backwards views that it was Theresa May herself who wrote a foreword to the 2010 Tory manifesto pledging to look into expanding civil partnerships into gay marriage?

Please don't tell me you're basing your opinion on Theresa May on social media memes.

Sorry, you're right. When Tim Farron publicly supports same-sex marriage, he's betraying his religion, whereas when Theresa May publicly supports same-sex marriage, she really means it.

Personally I always go with Joop! Homme but I'd trust anything under the brand. The ladies certainly seem to like it without it being the aftershave equivalent of Lynx Africa.
