I'm on the verge of ending my decade-long unemployment spell but if my employer can't grease the wheels and make a formal offer before Universal Credit comes in next month I'm gonna lose out. And if they offer me fewer hours it just gets worse. Thanks for helping me into work Theresa.

Putting four tablespoons of hot chocolate and some marshmallows in cellophane, calling it a drink for Father Christmas to have when he visits and asking £4 for it. Asking a fiver for a small box of Maltesers with a couple of candy canes underneath it so it looks like a sled. Putting Lego figurines or Scrabble letters in picture frames. Oh, and book folding.

Given how every cunt on here is from Ossett I'd like to talk about the "You know you have lived in Ossett when..." group. It's a fucking goldmine of this sort of shite. That, and because 85% of the population of Ossett is fat middle aged people, with another 10% being ANTISOCIAL YOOFS, it makes for brilliant reading. Sometimes some of Ossett's finest right-wing political theorists will make posts.

There's this whole very middle-aged "no swearing because won't somebody think of the children" vibe running through it, but you know once Pam and Angie and Diedre get their second glass of shitty Lidl "peeenoh nwaaaarrr" down them they'll be swearing like fucking sailors.

I noticed some sausage meat in a bag in Sainsburies so I made some Scotch Eggs. Well. Auld Alliance eggs (I added mashed French garlic to the meat). Plus finely diced bacon and a couple of jalapeños from the garden.

A lot of industries are heavily London-centric. If you want to work in something like media or finance, your career progression is severely limited if you're not in London. Most people eventually move out to the home counties when they can afford it, but shitty flatshares are just a price you have to pay for opportunity in the early stages of your career.

>A lot of industries are heavily London-centric. If you want to work in something like media or finance, your career progression is severely limited if you're not in London.

It does depend on what kind of career you envision for yourself. If you'll be happy reporting on dog bites and stolen milk bottles for a small regional newspaper up north, then there's no point in you moving to London hoping to land a job at the Times or the Guardian. Or if you don't mind working for an ad agency that designs flyers for a hipster bar (assuming they don't make them themselves on their £1,000 Macbooks while sipping on fair traded latte). Likewise, you can spend your whole life being a small wheel in a local NatWest branch in Tynesside, or even move up to run the place at some point. You don't have to become an investment wbanker at the London stock exchange.

If you have higher aspirations, then yes, a few years spent at a major company in your field in London is definitely a feather in your cap. But you might indeed find that it'll be difficult to find a job back in your home town once you've become Assistant Global Brand Manager. There isn't much that local businesses in rural Yorkshire will be able to do for you employment wise.

There's plenty of decent finance opportunities in Yorkshire.

Fund houses like Investec have offices in Leeds. Discretionary fund managers like Brewin Dolphin have offices in Leeds. The most successful branch of St James's Place is on an office park on the outskirts of Leeds. The head office of Yorkshire Building Society is on the outskirts of Bradford. There's national stockbrokers like Redmayne Bentley with their head offices in Leeds.There's similar opportunities in York and Sheffield. The big accountancy firms have offices there. You get the idea.

There's plenty of opportunities if you look for them. The whole you've got to go to London if you want a successful career is bollocks. Maybe if you want to be a fund manager or something but that's a very small number of people compared with the people who flock to London. It reminds me of the whole brainwashing under New Labour of you've got to go to university or you fail at life.

I did say rural Yorkshire, but then again just to illustrate my point; I don't know Yorkshire very well myself for that matter.

> The whole you've got to go to London if you want a successful career is bollocks. Maybe if you want to be a fund manager or something but that's a very small number of people compared with the people who flock to London.

One of my mates initially trained in London at Lloyds at their headquarters in London after school. They then told him that if he wanted to further his career, he had to go to uni and study something finance related. So he did, but in Cardiff. If I understood him correctly, simply for the sake of living somewhere else besides London for some time. Did his MSc in finance there. The catch was that he met his fiance there, who was from Cardiff born and raised. He would have liked to stay in Cardiff after uni, but they told him that there were no positions with Lloyds in that whole region that he would have been a good fit to work as. They did offer him one job as some sort of regional manager, but told him "You wouldn't be happy there, and we wouldn't be happy either". So he had to bite the bullet and move back to London. Made a big career for himself, going on eight years now, huge salary too.

I guess my point is, you kind of sell your soul if you opt for the big career in London. At some level, you will have to stay in London if you want to keep finding work in your field.

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.

So I'm being chased for debt from 02 for a phone contract I fucking cancelled two years ago.

I've phoned them up and phoned the bullshit "upgrade team" third party cunts as well as the debt collectors and given them all my story. None of them reckon they can help and each of them claims it's somebody else's responsibility, not theirs.

I'm sure they all think I'm just some chancer trying to get away without paying it, but the thing is I have fucking proof I sent it back, I sent it by recorded delivery and I still have a copy of that receipt saved. But I'm going around in circles trying to get anywhere.

Do I have to bloody sue them or what? This shit's causing a big black mark on my credit file that I want rid of. It's like I've been scammed except it's by a massive company who is supposed to do things right.

Lads, I've just had an unnerving thought.

Whenever I find myself on the likes of Pornhub I have noticed that there is an increasing trend for "incest" videos. These are usually labelled as mother fucking son or step-brother fucking step-sister.

Now we all know that porn corrupts minds by making people think extreme behaviour has been normalised; it is well known that many "millennials" see throat-fucking as standardised sexual activity and that an increasing number of lasses are being pressured into it.

Therefore, it stands to reason that the porn industry normalising incest will lead to a rise in it, and also people molesting younger siblings, happening.

Can't they just get around it all by having a bit at the start where both actors go "THIS IS TOTALLY CONsENSUAL, DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME KIDS!" and then it all proceeds as normal? Like how they used to put bits of completely non-sequitur dialogue in every so often so that pornos couldn't be classified as pure smut.
>> No. 59038 Crabkiller

Not really. The BBFC classification guidelines prohibit:

>material (including dialogue) likely to encourage an interest in sexually abusive activity which may include adults role-playing as non-adults

>the portrayal of sexual activity which involves real or apparent lack of consent. Any form of physical restraint which prevents participants from indicating a withdrawal of consent

>sexual threats, humiliation or abuse which do not form part of a clearly consenting role-playing game. Strong physical or verbal abuse, even if consensual, is unlikely to be acceptable

You can see that these descriptors are quite vague. Everything comes down to the opinion of BBFC examiners, who issue classification based on public consultations. If the average person thinks that something is unacceptable, then it'll usually be refused classification. Clearly stated consent before and after a scene helps a bit, but it's not a silver bullet. For example, non-realistic school uniforms are OK, but any kind of student-teacher roleplay will be refused classification. Anything more than a light spanking is out, as is any bondage beyond your typical Ann Summers stuff. You can't call anyone "daddy".

Most of the UK industry now licenses their material to foreign distributors, who are exempt from the regulations. It causes a lot of inconvenience in terms of payment processing and marketing, but it's only had a significant impact on small independent producers who can't afford good legal advice and the big players with an established presence in traditional media.

"Criminal Justice Act" is a standard short title for legislation which affects the criminal law. Governments will often tack something on to the standard short title if there's something in it that they're particularly keen to highlight. We've had a Criminal Justice and Public Order Act, a Criminal Justice and Police Act, a Criminal Justice (militant daft woggery and Conspiracy) Act etc.

Don't smoke a whole blunt to yourself for a start. Just have a few puffs.

Yeah, you have no frame of reference and had no one to guide you through it so you panicked. Come to us first if you don't have friends to do it with. In future when you feel nauseated eat something sweet, as cannabis lowers your blood sugar, and when you feel hungry eat something with high carb content.

Modern strains are so ridiculously strong that a couple of puffs is enough. Smoke one blunt over a full night and you'll have a much smoother experience. A 5mg diazepam, for either a) what you just experienced as an emergency or b) when you're finished for the night, is highly recommended so you don't have an anxiety dream and wake up in the middle of the night with the room spinning feeling like the Devil is pulling out your soul through your kneecaps.

> That's it?

Panic attacks are no laughing matter, people think it's something akin to "Ooh I had such a panic this morning when I couldn't find my keys" but in reality it's your body dropping feet first into fight or flight mode leaving you feeling like either you're going insane (depersonalization and derealization) and/or going to die. The really fun bit is that the symptoms are practically identical to a heart attack and can only be told apart via an ECG.

But yeah, follow >>7986's advice next time. Just have a puff and then wait for a bit, if you feel ok or don't feel it too much have another puff and so on. Weed tolerance is extremely rapid so the difference between what people who've been smoking for years and someone who hasn't smoked before / hasn't smoked in months can handle is massive. I don't smoke very often so when I do smoke I'm really fairly baked in two or three puffs.

/emo/25761 Father issues
Fairly sure this is for /emo/. Please only shout reasonably angrily if it is not.

I have never known nor seen my father. As a child I can only assume I asked my mother on very rare and sporadic occasions about him, with no conviction. As a young man I now wonder, and have done for while admittedly, what it would be like to meet him.

Can any lads who have had experiences of meeting their fathers for the first time during adulthood provide any advice?

P.S. I'm not 'totally fucked up man cos my dad left me innit'.

See, I find your story strangely unsympathetic because you really went out of your way to track someone down who did not want to be found, who had actively decided that you would be better off without him in your life. As a father yourself can you imagine the kind of self-awareness that would make a man distance himself from a child like that? Or are you only thinking about this in one direction? We're only human. Your dad knew he's not the best person in the world. You hired a PI to track him down and judge him a second time for a lifetime pennance he had already self imposed.

Food for thought though OPlad. Just think about why exactly you want to find him, what kind of hole do you imagine it will fill? On a logical level you must be well aware that it's more than likely only going to be a let down? He's just the bloke he donated some spank to your mam. He could be a junkie or he could be a millionaire, but by this point he'll never be your dad. Sorry.

My sister has some significant baggage regarding her absent father, but I've never really understood it. What's it actually like? Would you enlighten me?

OP here. Thanks for the replies lads. Your posts have been illuminating. I've not gotten any contact info, but my mother has told me a few stories and helped as she can. Currently debating whether it's worth it or not. I'll probably do this for some time.

generally don't like being sociable, but I do like knowing everything I can

This very much like me. I'm not looking for anything specific, I just have the overriding need to know. Hopefully if I ever do choose to pursue him he won't turn out to be a scrotum.


It was baggage for me as a teen and does still bother me from time to time. Not terribly, for example, some cunt putting their feet on the bus seat would quickly bother me more. I think the morals attached to the issue (and my issue at hand) get at me more than anything else, especially when I habitually exhibit traits that I find distasteful in others. I find it infinitely curious and frustrating that a man could abandon his son and never try to make contact with him. I'm a coward sometimes, so I won't claim that 'I would never abandon my children like my father did me' but if I ever did I know that I would just HAVE to find about them and speak with them at some point.

I'm unsure if gender is a factor (pretty sure the differences are small, if existant). My sister had a lot of baggage/issues with her dad being absent. Difference was he was in a few pictures my mum kept and got back in touch with my sister as of seven-ish years ago.

I'm sure it's different for other people, but that's my take on it mate.

Are there people you can pay to sit exams for you? I know it is wrong, but I don't really give a shit and I don't really respect all these time wasting, money hungry institutions. Qualifications like "Black Belt in Lean Six Sigma", and "agile scrum master." Basically, absolute shite some firms ask for. I would not mind paying some cunt somewhere to sit it for me, so that I can say that I am a great "scrum master," or what have you.

Supposedly he's more into special "chakra opening" massages, B1064.

And teenage me totally would have let him give me one if he'd helped me with that one tone-filtered Uruguay <-> Paraguay CCITT5 trunk :'(

6706 Lee Child - Gone Tomorrow
I tried reading some stuff outside of my usual interests.
This was pretty funny, some silly gaffes about technology and phones especially in the first half.
The narrator eventually conceded that he doesn't understand technology and stuck to (describing) his guns. And the New York underground system. There are maybe three pages dedicated to trivia on the construction and use of one particular make of carriage.
Massive overuse of Chekhov's gun. It takes some thinking to get that to work fluidly but it happened so much it read like he was doing it by rote almost, nothing innovative about it.
Solid writing for a thriller although there was one plot point that tantalisingly never got tied up.
Strong but not outstanding use of description, elements of Gary Stu, good pacing, weak characterisation, strong underlying themes of misogyny.

6707 Michael Connelly - The Black Echo
This is an almost identical book to the Lee Child one except the self-righteous and grumpy middle aged American man vibes are turned up so high you can smell him. Not to imply the other one is a good book but this one is worse in every conceivable way. Except he doesn't make a tit of himself talking about computers or phones, mainly because it was written seven years earlier in 2002 and they weren't really relevant.
There's definitely a simple formula to these books.

6708 Justin Cronin - The Passage
the passage.png
I quite liked this, although it goes on for 800+ pages then you find out it's just the first in a trilogy which is a bit mental. That said, Cronin's research, empathic characterisation and ability to combine different styles makes it not a regrettable read. If someone told me it was originally I Am Legend fanfiction I'd believe it. The only real problem I found was that the sheer number of characters got a bit confusing sometimes, particularly about 2/3 of the way through.
An ambitious work, just a couple of decades too late to make an impact.

6709 Ian Rankin - Tooth & Nail / Wolfman
This was brilliant compared to the other two. It's not exactly The Name of the Rose but nor is it trying to be. I thought detective fiction was traditionally an American speciality, trust a Scotsman to utterly outclass them at their own game.
All the same themes, minus the constant descriptions of the the minutae of guns, but in a far less smug and obnoxious manner. I'm tempted to read some more of his stuff at some point.
