/e/19768 What are you playing right now?
I figured I'd make an /e/ equivalent of that great, big /beat/ thread.

Recently I have been slogging away on XCOM: Enemy Within with the Long War mod. Humanity is doomed as I'm simply incapable of holding back the torrent of battleships the aliens keep hurling at me.

It's bloody fun though.

Bought Fifa 12 for 99p from a charity shop. It's quite good, but also this is part of a long term plan to just buy, or pinch from a torrent site, old(er) games I overlooked at the time of their release. Partly that's out of disdain for the copious inclusion of microtransactions, or DLC that's confirmed from day one so I end up waiting twelve months before I know I'm playing the full game, but also because I'm a bit skint and if I never played Fifa 12 again it's only 99p and I spent that much on Poppets today.

Type:Rider. It's a relatively simple gravity platformer interspersed with little entries about the history of printing and the evolution of how text is presented. If you've ever rolled your eyes at Comic Sans or got all pedantic about how fonts aren't fonts, they're typefaces, which I have a suspicion applies to one or even both of you, then get this game when it's on sale or whatever. The platformer bits are fun and the history is fascinating. My only complaint would be that it's slightly jarring for the play part to be regularly interrupted by the text, but it's worthwhile nonetheless.

It's just the ubiquity of wank material online that makes /x/ somewhat redundant. Type in a random woman's name to your preferred search engine and you'll probably find an acceptably horny Instagram, and you can get women with their baps out being posted during half time on /sp/ match day threads at the Other Place. I think that's why this thread in particular is the only /x/ thread to get posted in with any regularity, because it's filling a niche, if you'll pardon the implication.

>How did weed get so much better so quick?

The internet. It became much easier to learn how to run a hydroponic grow, buy the equipment and get quality seeds from the Dutch seedbanks. If your grow ran into problems, you could post photos of your sickly plants to the uk420 forums and get a fast and informed response. All of a sudden anyone could have a go at growing weed and stand a very good chance of success.

Homegrowers and small commercial growers proliferated wildly, undermining the market for imported hash and weed. The gangs who had imported cannabis either gave up and focused their efforts on class As, or started their own growing operations.

The crap Thai stick disappeared, but so did the good Lebanese hash, because the economies of scale of importing cannabis collapsed. Most of the resin products on the market today are domestically produced super-strength varieties - butane extracts, bubble hash etc.

> Any idea on what the magic truffles are like?

"Truffles" are just the part of the mushroom that grows under the earth. Due to the Dutch being a bunch of massive autists a technicality of language only the above-ground bit of the mushroom was banned so people started selling the truffles instead. I had a 20g box of Tampanensis for my first go and had a cracking time, but if I were to do it again I'd start with 5g the first time, 10g the next and so on. Definitely don't go all macho bravado and eat a whole of box of "Dragon's Dynamite" or whatever the latest nuclear-grade truffles are though unless you want to spend six hours in hell (or you've got a of experience of this kind of thing).

/emo/25506 How do you be less boring?

I'm a boring cunt.

I mean, this really hit me when a drunk girl shouted it at me in a club, but it's true.

I like graphic design of the 1960s and road signs. The sort of music I listen to involves polite headbanging and absolutely no dancing.

I go to societies at university to escape the crippling loneliness I feel most of the time, and any time they hold a night out I force myself to go, but I can't dance. I just freeze up; I end up stood there leaning against a wall or a pole or whatever (with my earplugs in, I struggle to hear anything when the volume is too loud, it's just like static). People will grab my arms, etc, trying to get me to dance, but I can't. I wish I could, but I can't.

I don't even like drinking any more; I used to get quite drunk on the regular but it doesn't make me any more interesting, it just amplifies the negative thoughts inside my head, and makes me feel physically like shit too -- I used to be hangover-proof but as I'm discovering that fades very quickly with age.

I tried some of the devil's lettuce (in a jurisdiction where it is legal), and I suppose like with any mood altering substance you need to be in the right frame of mind to start with or it won't end well -- it didn't, I hated it. I felt out of control and just panicked.

Is there any way out of this? Finding friends with similar interests is difficult, and the few that I do find are like me: largely dull.

If you don't have the licensing rights to a piece of music then you cannot play it in a public place. That's the law. Otherwise artists (or rather, their labels) don't receive their due royalties for their work.

To keep things simple the vast majority of recording artists and subcontract the business of music licensing to the Performing Right Society, or PRS For Music Ltd. They collect a standard fee from you, and then you can play Radio 2 as much as you like in your pub.

The previous tenant was a cunt and never changed his address, so all his fines, and criminal activities means that all these weird enforcement types keep rushing to my mum's house. She has been renting the place for the past year, and she isn't very able, so it takes her a while to come downstairs.

So far, a new "enforcement" chap comes around once or twice a month. They take down her details and fuck off. This almost always happens at 7 AM - even on a Sunday. So I caught one of them while I was staying with my mum and gave him a piece of my mind. Apparently they are all these private companies acting on behalf of the court or whoever is after the previous tenant. I even told the police that the criminal doesn't live here any more. I told the court and everyone in between, but this bollocks harassment isn't stopping. Today one of them came around and stuck a letter through the door stating that they will forcibly enter next time around.

What am I meant to do about this? They are greatly stressing my mum and that is just not on. What if they smash down the door? What then? This is utter bollocks.

Maybe if everyone was allowed to bear arms this type of shit wouldn't be happening as often. Fucking cunts. Who else should I be telling that they should look elsewhere for their criminal? The fucking secret service? Absolute bollocks.

Claim that the bailiffs have bad data and are harassing your mum as a result. That's an offence under law. It's a long shot, but might work.

If they're really threatening to forcibly enter (and very very few bailiffs can do this, only certain debts are enforceable like that) complain to the police.

I'll tell you lot what it is and then a recommendation?

its a ww2 style game set in the 80's where Hitler won the war by dropping it on Washington first. it starts as a basic rescue mission and will have a bit of lore that I'm writing for padding out. then it turns into Hitler's mission to Mars and the summoning of Cthulhu by Hitler in exchange for a longer life as he's 85 by '84 but Hitler misunderstood the wrath of the elder gods and the heros end up stopping all of this.
That's the wide arc of this and the problem I had was finding something that fitted with "conventional" weapons pistols, rifles and what not, along with some basic DnD stuff like for example; Arcane strike = experimental rifle that's found.
a lot of this would be home brewed but the struggle is with finding something that works. the Grit mechanic in DnD wasn't appealing so I thought something basic would.

Evening lads.

Is it a bad idea to buy a diesel car? I'm looking to get a big boring family car, most likely a Citroen Picasso, and the overwhelming majority of them are diesels. I know the government announced plans to ban the sale of diesel and electric cars from 2040, with the aim that there are no petrol or diesel cars on the road by 2050, and that diesel cars have been having a lot of bad press recently but I'm wary of getting carried away and it still seems a long way away so I'm on the fence.

Thanks, lads.

Recently bought a diesel van, as it's what I want/need now, and may be useful if there's a scrappage scheme at some point.

I think that the 'no ICE from 2040' is merely 'everything new must be at least hybrid', rather than 'everything must be electric'. I'd be surprised if that date isn't comfortably beaten, as a feeble hybrid system is pretty cheap and pretty useful in gaming MPG numbers (and sometimes may even be useful)

Over the lifespan of a second-hand Picasso, the only thing you've really got to worry about is road tax and fuel duty. There's a possibility that tax hikes could be used to push diesel drivers towards petrol cars. It's unlikely to be totally punitive, but you might find that your cost of ownership goes up, with a commensurate increase in depreciation. I certainly wouldn't buy a brand new diesel, but a five-year-old one would probably be a reasonably sensible purchase.


Zero-emissions zones will make plug-in hybrids a much more attractive option. Dozens of European cities plan on either banning internal combustion completely in the city centre, or introducing a punitive congestion charge. Manufacturers are planning for this with a selective hybrid system, allowing drivers to enter and leave the ZEZ in pure electric mode. Once you've fitted the essential gubbins of a hybrid system, it isn't that much more expensive to add a charging socket and bump the range up to 30 or 40 miles. That kind of range will allow a majority of drivers to make the majority of their journeys on electric power alone.

I've visited my Dad for the first time in 6 years, and in a nutshell, he's in a fucking state.

Drinking 20 to 25 pints a day every day, chain smoking, and his flat is fucking crammed. He's hoarded a ton of shit. He was always big on recycling and looking after the environment, but this is ridiculous. There are over 37 empty washed jars of coffee above one cupboard alone.

He's hit a spiral of depression ever since he split with my mother. And I'm starting to pity the man, he's got a heart of gold but he's terrible with addiction.

I'm staying at his place for a week, and I intend to clear his place up best I can before I leave. Any recommendations on how I can encourage him to help himself a bit more, or how I can shift all of this gear in a safe way. Any strategies that help hoarders or alcoholics would be very useful.

I appreciate any help gents.

>He's hit a spiral of depression ever since he split with my mother.

That can really throw a man out of his orbit. After decades of marriage, it can really mess you up if your partner suddenly or not so suddenly leaves you. One of my dad's friends had the same thing happen to him, and it turned him into a fucking mess. He also lost the house and his kids moved in with their mum, and he had to start life from zero again, aged 47.

He also had a bout of alcoholism, but he eventually came around again when his boss threatened to fire him if he was going to come to work inebriated one more time. He sobered up and even met a new partner.

Your dad probably needs a wakeup call. Something that will show him quite clearly on what kind of a self-destructive path he is. Unfortunately, alcoholism clouds your judgement quite intensely, so it might really take a bit of a shock to make your dad see what he is doing to himself.

But he really needs you being there for him now, first and foremost. He needs to know that somebody still cares about him. You're doing a good thing by staying with him. That alone can make a huge difference and make him realise that his life isn't as pointless as he may feel it is.

Apologies for being blunt, but there's fuck all point setting him up on a dating website right now if he really is currently drinking 25 pints a day; worst case, he finds someone with similar intake, they enable each others' addiction, and he moves from a toxic situation into a toxic relationship, which is even worse. As it is, you need to understand that it's going to take quite a bit of time and incredible effort on his part to taper down from that amount to being able to sleep regularly without any alcohol at all. Reducing consumption rapidly (over the course of a few days) would be dangerous, stopping outright would be life-threatening, especially if he's already physically unfit, as older blokes tend to be.

You're doing the right thing by staying with him, but at some point as >>25551 mentions he is going to need some catalyst, some wake-up call, to get him to change his ways. Even if we knew more of the particulars of your situation it'd still be difficult to advise what shape that should take, mainly because the drive to recover has got to come from him.

Christ. I don't necessarily have any advice to give but yeah, you'll want to do something soon because with that level of daily drug intake he'll kill himself before long.

Although I hadn't responded earlier, I've kept a close eye to the advice you gentlemen have given. Thank you, it's greatly appreciated.

I mentioned having grand kids over a few pints on the first day, told him he better not be dead by the time they come. His face lit up as I mentioned grand kids. That and the mention of my intent of playing the violin, he used to play all the time, busking, at home, after and before shifts. He has a shit telly that cuts out audio frequently, having read your comment, I made him a deal that I'll buy him a new telly if he teaches me some Bach on the violin. Caught him tuning it back up a few times. Thanks for the suggestion, I hope he's rediscovered the rabbit hole.

Thank you for the information mate, insightful.

While cleaning up stuff in my Dad's flat he told me that I've been a bit of a wake up call. He's been neglectent to have me around for some time dodging calls and ignoring people. after mentioning that I'm coming regardless of his permission, he started moving a bit.

After 6 month period of alcohol induced insomnia, he ended up losing his job of 8 years. I've been with him to create a new CV, and hes looking to work in a new field. Things appear to be on the up, let's hope he sees it through. Thanks again.

No need to apologies, I like straight talkers. Thanks for the advice, we're taking it into effect. He's currently on 7 cans a day, we're going to get it down to 5 a day. We started at 15 and it has been less than a week. Once at 5 a day, we're going to shut down one day a week, then two and so on. The effect on his body has been brutal turmoil, hope it gets easier. Thank you for the response.

It is a learning experience - you get to a certain point in your life when your eyes are opened up about who your parents actually are. Good luck lad.

My life has gone downhill ever since I met a Brazilian Ju Jitsu fighter at Westfield and saw him selling copies of big tissue. It's strange but the way I remember it was that I was set for everything but at December in 2011, things became worse. Nothing mattered and I couldn't eat much as well as wondering whether the nootropics I was taking would actually end up in me being hospitalised. It becomes extraordinarily strange when I realise a lot of it was recorded on this here website, on the IRC itself. I want to understand exactly what was happening in 2012. There's some more things that happened which include kidnapping, torture and brainwashing (as well as strong secret service intimidation) but I wanted to find out exactly why my life became strange.

I remember absolutely everything as well as absolutley nothing. If you get my gist.

A tree has fallen on the track between Wrexham General and Ruabon. The line towards Shrewsbury is currently blocked.

The M6 is closed northbound between J41 and J42 due to an incident.

Johnathan Samuels just asked @SkyNewsNaz how worrying #StormAileen is. This is her qualified reaction. "Hmmm so so”.

Be careful out there, chaps.

Beleagured Theresa May 'to quit as Prime Minister on August 30, 2019 in a bid to stop a leadership challenge' - as she tries to calm rivals with a prosecco party at Chequers

Theresa May is said to have revealed the date she will quit as Prime Minister - giving herself two years to see Brexit through first.

She has chosen Friday August 30th 2019 as the day she will step down from 10 Downing Street, it has been reported.

It comes amid a major charm offensive by Mrs May in a bid to win the support of her MPs and avoid an awkward leadership challenge.

This man is going to become Prime Minister on 1st September 2019 and it's going to be fucking awesome.

I'd wait until the next census before you make a wild statement like that given even the most alarmist stories I can find put it at 53% in E+W (obviously the western isles etc. are still putting people in the wicker man).

My non-scientific opinion is that although most people wouldn't fit the definition of devout Christian they are more receptive to fluffy statements like 'everything happens for a reason' and 'something is watching over us'. The problem is as the majority are completely uneducated in theology they're shocked when they encounter doctrines that find sex a sin.

>therefore don't really want political leaders who do

I doubt most people care. On the flip-side only a tiny minority gave a damn about Corbyn's floppy answer to religion despite it's potential to shape the last election given May's religious nationalism.

You seem to struggle with the concept of compromise in politics. The PM is not a dictator nor does it seem like Mogg wants to create a theocracy -indeed, despite his religious views he has always come across as someone wedded to British natural law traditions.

I think there is something to be said of the nature of British culture where we can have evangelicals who don't presume to enforce their beliefs onto others.

No, I struggle with poor messaging. Better a liar than muddled.

I don't see the relevance. It's not a theocracy to buzz it through with private members bills like an evil Roy Jenkins.

I'm not going to press too far on this. I just like making fun of Neil Kinnock.

Oh it really does. In a big way - it started out as a festival thing, but has spread and there are now many companies offering similar. Avoid. Lad in the OP has the right idea.

The episode names were recently released. It looks like there's gonna be three American episodes and three British episodes, judging by the casting.
