What do women think of men who aren't very sexually experienced?

I'm in my mid 30s and I've only ever had sex with one girl back when I was 14. Although I'm pretty good looking and women do give me signs of interest I've suffered social anxiety all my life and haven't been able to take things any further with them. Lately I've been making more of an effort to become social and I think I should be able to get a bird. Should I tell them I'm not very experienced or just go for it? I'm sure any woman will notice how inexperienced I am anyway. Will most women find it cute or sad?

What you're saying with this graph is that even at the best of pre-industrial times, people aged 70 made up only about a quarter of the population. That isn't very high. And at least past age 75, your life expectancy dropped off quite steeply, whereas nowadays apparently a whole third of the population in developed countries, e.g. the U.S., live to be 85.

And that at least partially corroborates my point that it was somewhat rare for people to live to age 70 or over in those days. Also, this graph doesn't say whether it refers to prehistoric or current hunter-gatherer cultures. And what about people who aren't or weren't part of any of these groups?

The graph shows how common each age of death is different societies. The most common age of death in modern hunter-gatherer societies is about 70 and was it presumably similar in recent prehistoric societies.

It may have been the most common age of death in relative terms; in absolute terms, though, only one in five to one in four people lived to age 70 or 75, while one in three people in the U.S. in 2002 lived over a decade longer than that.

I stand by my argument.

This place sometimes reminds me of the rhetoric of a second generation fascist state.

It doesn't matter how shit the posts are, as long as it is not 4chan, god forbid a post is ever found to be from 4chan, even if it was any good that is the greatest sin against the state.

Quality can slip in the the gutter, but as long as nothing posted here was ever posted on the site this site is a clone of all is well.

Also I would indeed argue that original posts, even shit ones, are better than reposts from 4chan. It's not as though this thread's OP is of such outstanding quality that the whole bloody world needs to see it either.

So my friend and I went into a KFC tonight to get out of the rain until it hit 12 and our money went in.

No sooner than I'd got my mobile out to use the WiFi some black kid comes over and pretends to want to know the time. My spidey senses were tingling so I put my phone in my inside pocket, zipped up my jacket and told him it was half eleven.

He then proceeds to ask us our names and asks if we are the police and what we are doing there if we aren't eating. My knob of a mate tells him we are waiting to get paid. Kid then starts trying to push drugs on us, which I declined saying I don't use, which was a lie but anyway.

Then he fucking says that he doesn't like white people chilling near him and says "look what I've got" lifting up the flap of his jacket pocket revealing a fucking razor sharp filleting knife.

I instantly got up to leave and my idiot mate hadn't even noticed so I had to drag him away.

I'm fucking livid. Imagine if a white person had done the same to him or another black person? There'd be cries of dolphin rape.

BROKEN BRITAIN

This really has lessened my opinions of blacks even further.

Russell on the stereotyping of black men as criminals, or The Color of Crime, the report by the white supremacist New Century Foundation which has hosted talks by Richard Spencer and Nick Griffin, which argues racial bias by police is "negligible"?

Lads, car music system retard here again.

My shitty Megane's brakes are stuck on, I was driving to work and the MPG is like half of what it usually is and it's super heavy to drive. Got out and had a look and the rear left brake is jammed on. Drove the couple of miles home again, stupidly touched the brake disc and burnt my fingers, got under the car and the... cabley bit that attached to the brake mechanism is visibly stuck on versus the other, working one.

Could this be due to the cold? My car said it was -5C this morning here.

/emo/24605 Old People Problems
My old Nan and Granddad used to live together, and barely went anywhere or had a social life. Then two years ago he died, and now she barely goes anywhere or has a social life. This is a problem now though because she is on her own so she is lonely and depressed.

How do I get her to get outside her comfort zone and go find some social interactions? I think she is scared and set in her ways and depressed and so can't be bothered, and I understand that because I have been there before - but I can't tell her to get a job or join a sports club like I did.

Halp.

Hey,

Have you considered this from Age UK? It's basically staffed by volunteers and somebody will go and spend time with her once a week or so to give her a bit of company.

A befriending service might be a good option. It's also worth looking into day centres, luncheon clubs and similar activities. If she's still in good physical and/or mental condition, she might enjoy the U3A. They're a co-operative group run by and for older people who want to keep active.

http://www.u3a.org.uk/

If you have the time to spare, it might help to take her out on a few jaunts, just to get her into the habit of going out.

It's worth bearing in mind that post-bereavement depression is still depression - if you can convince her to see her GP, it could be a real help. Older people often have a very outdated view of mental health and don't realise that there's help available.

I want a new job but I have no idea what. All I know is I'm tired of sitting behind a desk and pretending my day isn't dull as shit, I feel like it rots my brain through under stimulation. What I really want is something where I leave work with a personal sense of accomplishment, like my effort that day had meaning, and I'm not enough of an economic materialist for just making money to be the reward. Where do I look for inspiration?

I do repetitive and fairly menial work in a hospital, but it's in a hospital, so no matter how insignificant my tasks are, it's for The Greater Good.

I came to realise after getting this job, that what I wanted out of a job was not actually satisfaction and a feeling of accomplishment- What I really wanted is for people to stop expecting me to pretend that I did have those things. All my previous jobs have had those delusional managers and brainwashed company arse-lickers who go around like the thought police interrogating people who aren't quite behind the company's values enough or committed to the mission statement or some other goddamn terrifying programmed corporate drivel. Those are the people who make your life hell. Where I work now, everybody is refreshingly up front about the fact that they are at work to pay the bills and little else, and it really takes a load off the mind. I think the problem is that deep down they too know how utterly trivial their role is, but they have staked too much of their fragile ego upon it, resulting in a hideous level of overcompensation.

You just need a job where, even if the actual task you carry out isn't important, the sum of the organisation's parts DOES matter. The trouble is that in 90% of jobs out there, the end goal behind all the bullshit is simply selling stuff. It's inherently meaningless no matter what you do in the chain.

I'm blathering again anyway so:

Health and/or Social Care for rewarding work, but be prepared for stress. Maybe try a bit of volunteering in the sector. Pick a client group which sounds interesting, mental health, older people, drugs and alcohol, homelessness etc. I'm sure most organisations would be happy to have you volunteer for even just an hour or two a week. It will give you an idea if it's route you wish to pursue. Maybe try a few different places.

Who has the worst job on .gs?

Been seeing a lot of people moaning lately and maybe someone with an actual shit job might put things into perspective?

I reckon lorry drivers have it the worst - long hours on the road, away from home for not-that-good wage, especially a lot of the polish lads that do it for minimum.

Get to see loads of different places and you haven't got a boss breathing down your neck all bloody day and best of all no office politics. And it pays better than you think.

Yes but you are limited to jobs such as trade plating when you first pass. You need a minimum 1 years driving experience before you can get a job with a bigger company.

Trade plating can be fun and you get to drive everything up to fire engines etc.

I am about to do a job interview in a godforsaken place near Inverness. I am quite sure that I will get the job, since the people in the agency told me that they cannot find suitable local candidates and that nobody wants to move there. Any advice?

A job agency called me, they said that they had one placement in Inverness, the other in Fort Williams. There is also a place in Invergordon, but they are not giving relocation support so fuck them.

Under Woy we couldn't beat Slovakia at the Euros. Under Big Sam we scraped a 1 - 0 victory in injury time when they were down to 10 men. Everyone knows the hallmark of champions is being able to grind out wins when you're playing shit.

What's going on with this new England kit? The red away kit's always been my favourite and now there's this dark blue nonsense?

It's enough to make me want to stab several dozen Londoners.

You can still be really good, but it's always possible that somebody else was just better, or likely just more experienced.

Don't let it put you off, you can never have enough practice with interviews.

Have you considered being gay, black, Jewish or chopping your cock off and being a tranny? I know a Nigerian lad who can't find his arse with both hands and he's been hired by universities, Adobe, and numerous other places. They always end up firing him. He's admitted to me he knows that the only reason he gets hired is he ticks diversity boxes, while still having a broad Yorkshire accent (he was born and raised here) so he's not really "foreign".

If you don't want to fully chop your cock off, go the Jewish route. You'll only have to slice a bit off then.

People say these things all the time, and they very usually mean diddly squat. Turns of phrase like that sound nice enough so that you will think they are nice people, but they are also non-committal enough that you can't say "Hang on, you signalled me that I was going to get the job" after the fact.

One of the fads in HR in recent years has been to let off failed applicants gently, the idea being that there's a possibility that you will meet again, either because you will be working for their direct competitors, or because you will be a good fit for one of their other positions in the future. And because companies do care about their reputation among jobseekers nowadays, because they believe it better enables them to attract the best employees.

As far as you are concerned now - don't get your hopes up too much when somebody says something like that after an interview, and learn to read between the lines. People are usually much worse liars than they think they are. You can tell somebody all sorts of nice things and act like you mean them, but somewhere between the lines there will be the dead giveaway that they're not being honest.

ITT: Workplace annoyances.

I'll get the ball rolling - having to bring in pastries on your birthday. I know it's cheaper if people bring their own in on their birthday instead of chipping in every time someone in the office has a birthday, but it's still fucking annoying having to fork out on your birthday.

Not at all, if I wanted to "be a hero" I'd have just whistleblown to the FCA.

I made a throwaway comment in my notice letter which they asked me to expand upon. I decided to be frank and I got a few people to check it before I responded; every single one of them said it was spot on and everything I'd said wasn't incorrect.

The issue is so severe that when the FCA do come in it could lead to a seven figure fine and/or them issuing a cease and desist notice to the company. Either the board don't know about the matter because they're incompetent or they've been turning a blind eye to it whilst counting all the money coming in.

Loads of my coworkers are immature but they generally understand rules around consent and stupid immature banter i.e. I have a difficult time dealing with it so they'll not harass me if I'm not getting involved.

Aside from one manager, who's 21 or so and persistently only communicates with me (and other employees) through innuendos, touching peoples (only guys) arses, hugging people unexpectedly, making stupid sexual jokes, making stupid racist jokes and specifically calling out my accent because I'm from a different bit of England. Which really just pisses me off because I've dealt with that through school and found it about as funny as hitting my ballsack with a hammer.

I could play along with some of this filth (I mean I get on about worse stuff with mates) if I even remotely liked the guy but I think he's a twat, and he's clearly doing it to get a rise out of me and it makes my work more of an annoyance than it needs to be.

I'm just deliberating on how to deal with this. I'm not convinced he'd have the emotional maturity to cut it out if I asked him to but his girlfriend is also the sort of people manager for our store, which could make things awkward.

Outlook has a scheduling assistant for arranging meetings, that will tell you that I've got a regular appointment in the timeslot you keep insisting on booking every fucking time.

Can't accurately put across how hard it is sitting around waiting for an agency to get back to you about when you start 36 hour rotating shifts.

I could have gone directly to a cleaning role today too albeit on less hours but now I just feel like I'm back in that mire of uncertainty I have been for the past 3 months.

Fully incensed to work but everything feels like one step forward and two steps back with interviews you think you've nailed after doing your research and showing your competencies, agencies who are keen to take you on but not really give you anything and hundreds of vacancy e-mails in places you can't get to.

I've been wondering about the age demographics on .gs as we seem to be older and more cantankerous fellows than the average imageboard circle.

I can't remember if there has been a poll done before but I'm sure we have all aged since any previous one. Would you mind answering this so we can all learn something?

Do you remember when purple shared the link on britchan and it was ignored by everyone? It only had like 9 boards and was completely dead. Then yubyub fucked the server and we all went to krautchan but then there was another exodus as soon as britfa.gs became the board to be. Do you remember how everyone bitched about the name being difficult to type and how it'd be useful to sort out the chaff from the wheat?
