I don't think it's that hard to learn with some dedication. I only know enough to get by/make some small talk, but the alphabet is easy enough to get to grips with so you'll be able to sound things out pretty quickly. For me personally though it's the grammar that gets tricky, but I've found that with any language.

I found this on eBay.

Is this clever marketing or some sort of exhibitionist thing? There seems to be a large amount of women displaying the garments they're selling in this manner.

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.

OK. I'll share a few things with you, not to encourage you to persist in ideas that sound delusional, but to reassure you that you are not alone in having obsessional thoughts and over-thinking it all.

I found Richard Tomlinson's blog where he was revealing all sorts of things he shouldn't have in his efforts to make some sort of peace with SIS back in 2006. Some commenters there were most interesting to me as they talked about Intelligence agency linked mind control - I'd been interested in this stuff for years and had read all about MK Ultra in reputable books like 'Journey Into Madness' and checked out the crazy fringe literature of people like Cathy O'Brien too. It took quite a bit of detective work but eventually I figured out that all of the comments talking about this stuff were in fact Emily under many different handles. As her graphomania has progressed so has her clarity and intellect declined: she could give you the chills back then, now she's just silly and a bit of a worry.

When I was reading Richard Tomlinson's blog everyday and sometimes commenting myself, a van was parked outside all day with two guys sitting there observing the flats and making it clear that this was the sort of surveillance I was supposed to notice. I guess it is a possibility they were watching someone else? I still wonder about what exactly was the great national threat I may have been posing by getting involved in this, and maybe they were just checking out a drug dealer next door.

Tomlinson made his peace with the security services, removed his blog, and gave evidence at the Diana inquest.

In 2010 I experienced a kind of nervous breakdown after a series of bereavements - I was exhausted and suicidal to some degree and ended up in an NHS nuthouse for ten days. While there I was so spaced out I wasn't making sense and became fixated on the idea that a fellow patient was in fact purple of .gs fame. I asked 'are you purple?' and he answered 'well I had to meet you after you wrote that'. We were both in a madhouse and these sort of preposterous cross purpose conversations do happen there. A very bonkers old eskimo guy in there told me 'since you mention Richard Tomlinson, now they will never let you go - this a den of iniquity my friend'. WTF?

I have never been on the irc, didn't go to that meetup, all I know about the mods of this site is that they have done a fine job keeping the site amusing and fairly unique (if underused) and free of the likes of Are Simon or carpet-baggery types. Getting rid of the /i/ board early on was a great move towards making here a place for adults I think.

No snarky comments from all you sane people please - my story is directed at OP only. Polite self-sage.

/emo/24897 About to get evicted from my flat, any way to hold on longer?
Had a load of job shit, fell 2 months behind on rent, looking for places at the moment but won't get any confirmation for a week.

I've lived here 18 months. The contract lasted 12 months, my landlady 'really liked me' because I'm quiet and clean and polite, so when it ran out she let me stay without signing anything else. Despite 'all inclusive rent' I agreed to a £50pcm hike to help out with bills, helped her paint the flat, sort out a new tenant. Basically, I haven't been acting like a shit until just recently. After being asked to buy a contract and a key for the new tenant, it became clear that my landlady was incredibly unreliable. When I originally lost my job I just stopped paying rent and waited for her to notice. It was 2 months before she contacted me, she wants either £500 or £1000, I'm not quite sure, because I don't think I have to pay it (it can come out of my deposit and the ~£750 I happily paid her in extra for bills over the months), and really I have no intention of paying it unless legally bound.

Since I'm not contractually bound by anything, that's all run out and I have the only copy of the original contract, and my 'landlady' is renting this property from assisted living, so what's the deal here? Can she just kick me out as soon as she gets back in the country? Any kind of squatters rights I can invoke to get a few weeks of space? Not sure how long it'll take me to find a house, but I intend to be gone within the fortnight, and would be using the money that I've managed to gather since getting a new job to pay the deposit on that rather than pay one/two months rent.

/£$€¥/7024 Should people with less than perfect language skills be trusted?
I can't quite come up with a satisfying answer to this. On the one hand, you'd expect someone you're potentially employing to carry out skilled work to at least be able to throw together a grammatically correct and properly spelled sentence in an email. On the other hand, a lot of skilled tradesmen and craftsmen, especially in niche fields, seem to be terrible at email but personable in real life, and their trade skills can make up for their poor communication skills. On yet another hand, can you really trust someone to carry out a job requiring attention to detail if they don't have the attention to detail to ensure their grammar and spelling are correct in their emails and letters to you?

I think it ultimately comes down to the signalling value of language. Nobody expects a tradesman to have particularly good writing skills, because it's almost entirely unrelated to their actual work. I'd look for other signs, like their van. If it's a rustbucket, they probably don't give a shit. If it's too flash, there's a good chance they'll rip you off. If it's a rental with magnetic decals over the Hertz logo, you might get burgled.

For office workers, obviously written English is very important. You'd expect decent grammar and an appropriate tone at the least. For professionals, it gets more nuanced. I'd trust a solicitor who writes to me in plain English much more than one who writes in legalese; either they don't know how to communicate in plain English, or they're trying to make themselves look important. Senior executives tend to write in short sentences or even sentence fragments as a sign of how busy they are and how important their time is.

/£$€¥/7013 Lifetime ISA
These a good idea, boys?

The basics:
>18-39 to open one
>pay in anything upto £4k per tax year
>25% hmrc top up on payments in that year each april
>can pay in every year up to 50 years old
>can only withdraw the money with no penalty for a first time property buy or upon turning 60 years old
>25% penalty for withdrawing at any other time for any other purpose, effectively a 6.25% penalty on what you initially paid in
>counts towards your overall £20k a year isa allowance

I've been toying with the idea of starting to save seriously for buying a house but I've been unconvinced that it's the best investment for me. However, this makes it seem like it may be the best option now. I've got £4k to stick in one right now then I should be able to put £1-2k a year for the next few years too which should get me a decent deposit. I'm highly unlikely to need to take the money out for any reason so the penalties don't concern me, and even if I do the penalty is manageable.

Is there any reason to be concerned about the lack of providers? I've been looking at the Skipton product, I can't conceive of any reason to not go for it. I think they offer a 0.5% interest rate if I remember rightly, which is mostly irrelevant because the only reason anyone is doing it is for the government bonus. From what I understand, if I invest with Skipton, then more providers offer the Lifetime ISA in future, then I can freely transfer my balance with no penalty to another Lifetime ISA.

/emo/25001 Being a dickhead
So earlier this afternoon I intimidated some women at a train station.

Now, that sounds bad, reprehensible even, but fifteen minutes earlier they had loudly mocked a disabled person getting onto the train, and a mixture of wanting to control resent overreactions I've had to certain events and not wanting to cause embarrassment to the disabled individual made me not say anything. However, as they sat there, giggling and laughing and talking about utterly vapid bullshit my shame and rage built and built and by the time we got off at the station I was fuming, disgusted as much with myself as with them by this point. As we went through the ticket gates I slunk behind the crowd and waited for them, so what I did next was with full intent, I confess.

Beyond the gates I almost drifted in amongst them as one exclaimed "I don't even know what to do now we're here", and I let out a fairly incoherent stream of frustrated curses. From what I recall (these things always happen "so fast", don't they?) I told them "you horrible obnoxious cunts, why don't you save this town the bother and fuck off home, you cruel bitches". I'm fairly certain I threw a twat into the mix, but heaven knows where.

They looked, understandably alarmed, and they fell quiet, and as I went away to collect myself I realised I hadn't mentioned the train incident at all and they, in their uncaring way, had possibly already forgotten it. On some level, however, I was perfectly glad to leave them confused and anxious about the whole situation, not giving them a chance to defend their utterly indefensible actions.

I feel unpleasant about the whole thing, but also that I was right, which is difficult to reconcile, and probably why I'm writing this. Am I mental bastard, looking for an excuse to berate strangers, or a sweary DI Frost, doing the filthy, honest, work no one else cares to?

I tend to think negative of people regardless of their age. Their hypocrisy and smug self-absorbed holier than thou emotional thinking seeps through in a way that I find immediately transparent.

I don't hate all people, but I don’t think this kind of mean girls’ bullshit goes away with age. It is just you aren't exposed to it, because adults tend not to hold court with a hoard of their bitchy friends on public transport during rush hour, and as you grow older you self sellect to avoid the sections of society you despise.

I have an old PC that's doing nothing but taking up space.

I want to grow plants in it.

I'm thinking if I strip off the casing so it's just the internal skeleton, boards, wires and so on I can stick it in my garden and put a creeper in it or something.
Can anyone suggest a plant that would work well for this?
Is there anything in the machine that's going to seep out in the rain and poison the garden?

/news/13044 UAE email leak

>The emails provided so far to the The Intercept show a growing relationship between the United Arab Emirates and the pro-Israel, decepticonservative think tank called the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD).

>On the surface, the alliance should be surprising, as the UAE does not even recognize Israel. But the two countries have worked together in the past against their common adversary, Iran.

>On March 10 of this year, FDD CEO Mark Dubowitz authored an email to both the UAE’s ambassador to the United States, Yousef Al-Otaiba, and FDD Senior Counselor John Hannah — a former deputy national security adviser to Vice President Dick Cheney — with the subject line “Target list of companies investing in Iran, UAE and Saudi Arabia.”

>“Dear, Mr. Ambassador,” Dubowitz wrote. “The attached memorandum details companies listed by country which are doing business with Iran and also have business with the UAE and Saudi Arabia. This is a target list for putting these companies to a choice, as we have discussed.”

>The hacked emails demonstrate a remarkable level of backchannel cooperation between a leading decepticonservative think tank — FDD is funded by pro-Israel billionaire Sheldon Adelson, an ally of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who is one of the largest political donors in the United States — and a Gulf monarchy.

>Israel and the Gulf monarchies have grown closer in recent years, as both sides fear that Iran is moving closer to normalization with the West and will therefore increase its own influence and power in the region. But admissions of the alliance between the two are still rare in public.

I reckon the Sauds are mindful of the accusations flying around about ISIS funding coming from their country, and so they're trying to make Qatar into a scapegoat.

Perhaps there's some connection to OPEC and the oil production cap, but that's straying a little closer to tinfoil hat territory.

Evening lads,

I have myself a graduate job (£24k/year) and after deductions for various things Ill have £1300ish a month to live off. The job is outside London and I'll need access to the M11, so I've been looking at Walthamstow area. Rent seems to be surprisingly cheap at about £110-120 per week, which'd give me around £800 for expenses each month.

How feasible is this? I'll have to run a crappy car to get to work and honestly I have no idea how much that'll cost. I'm not very good at big leaps like this, I just kind of make it work when I get there but given that I'll be responsible for my entire income and expenses I want to be more careful.

Note: I know I can live outside London but I have friends there and I'd kill myself if I had to live in Bishop's Stortford or Harlow.

Being more central is of no use to me since I'm working outside London, I just want to be connected so I can go for a pint with people I know from time to time without having to crash at a mate's house just because I wanted two pints.

I've heard rumours of people who have their own flat, but I'm starting to believe that it's just an urban myth.

I stayed there for a few days many years ago. Seemed alright. Plenty of bars iirc.

I think Aphex Twin is from there.

Cornish lad here.

Redruth is kind of shitty, definitely not the nicest town in Cornwall by any stretch (Penzance, Truro and St Ives are all fine, the latter is touristy in summer) but absolutely nowhere near as bad as nearby Camborne, there is something incredibly depressing about that shithole.

Of course, the best part about all of this is that we can't be shot of Trump. Just look down the order of succession and see the cunts that would replace him. Remember that for any of those people on the list to reach the presidency, everyone above them has to come and go, and their jobs have to remain vacant. If Mike Pence takes the reins, only if nobody is appointed to replace him does Paul Ryan get a go.

/g/25940 drone swarms
China has launched a swarm of 119 fixed-wing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), breaking its previous record of a swarm of 67 drones, according to the China Electronics Technology Group Corporation (CETC).

Interesting article. I've been thinking of a drone purchase for a while - the DJI ones look good, but I have been thinking of building one from scratch - anyone tried building drones/planes?

That is specifically one of the pitfalls I'd like to avoid - too many drones use shitty Wifi networks for communication. I would like to do the whole thing with a proper radio control setup - thats still quite hackable but not in as many interesting and varied ways as Wifi.

Spent a lot of time looking at Arduino based setups - for instance.

I'd recommend starting out with an Almost-Ready-To-Fly or Ready-To-Fly product from Eachine. If you're starting out you will crash a lot, so it's worth starting out on something cheap and small. The Eachine E010 looks like a toy, but it's a really good trainer quad for indoor or backyard flying. It can be easily upgraded to FPV at a later date.

When you're ready to upgrade to a full-size 250 quad, you'll need quite a lot of stuff. It's all fairly cheap individually, but it does add up. This video covers what you'll need and how to use it:

You'll also want a big packet of spare propellers, a spare motor and speed controller and a couple of extra batteries. If you've got a lot of money to spend and you're serious about the hobby, I'd suggest going with the FRSky Taranis radio and the Aomway Commander FPV goggles.

There are some fairly strict legal restrictions on drone operation. You really need to be aware of the rules, because the Civil Aviation Authority have handed out some massive fines to people who were flying like twats.

If there's no camera at all on your quadcopter or plane, it's just a radio controlled model and can be flown anywhere that is reasonably deemed to be safe. If you stick a camera on, then your model becomes a "small unmanned surveillance aircraft" and the rules get a lot stricter. You can't fly within 50 metres of any person, vehicle or structure that is not entirely under your control, within 150 metres of any "congested area", or more than 400 metres above ground level. If you fly with FPV goggles, you must have a competent observer with you, monitoring the flying area to prevent collisions.

/job/11350 Overpayment of Universal Credit
Woke up to a weekend ruiner of a £750 overpayment bill. I really need help in working out whether this is enforceable, and why the amount is so...

Between- 26th Sep 16 - 25th Nov 16.

Confirmed Payments During Period 26/09/16 - 25/11/16

------------- PERIOD BEGINS ----------------------------------
30th Sep = £242.40 (legitimate payment during UC claim period)
<----------- "You asked us on 24th Oct to close UC Claim." They said this in the letter.
1st Nov = £256.37 - (SHOULD be legitimate payment - only 9 days later closure)
--------------- PERIOD ENDS--------------------------
1st Dec = £494.17 (overpayment?)
<------------ Immediate Phonecall made questioning Dec payment. Advised payable in small instalments when employment found OR is paid back through benefit payment deductions. Was not aware of information below (Turn2US) at this point, did not question legitimacy of bill.

I like the phrase bulletin board, rather than *chan or imageboard. It makes it sound like we're pinning important messages about topics for other experts in particular fields to see, rather than a bunch of sadacts reposting Kunt and the Gang until the end of time.

Can this be adopted into official board parlance? "The Bulletin Boards of G.S."

I got a similar letter the other day saying I owe the DWP £127.49 and it says absolutely nowhere on the letter what it's actually for, I didn't claim anything at all in the last financial year, so I fail to see where they've gotten the figure from. Will give them a ring tomorrow to see if they can itemise anything.

Why must they use an 0345 number?

Because it costs around the same as anything else, instead of being extortionate like 0845 numbers are.

ITT: Weird dreams you've had lately.

I actually dreamed last night that I was in Australia, visiting the two blokes from the Foster's adverts in their beach hut. Sure enough, they gave me a Foster's, and I said "cheers, guys"... and then one of them said to me "oh no mayt, we don't say cheers heere. We say 'You little ripper!'"

Quite bizarre... has this dream got any deeper meaning, or have I just been watching too much telly lately?

I've got a bit of ongoing sexual tension with a lass at work.

I had a dream last night that she was sat on my lap and stroking my knob through my trousers, talking about how massive it was.

Good fucking grief I can hardly look her in the eye today.

I've had quite weird dreams lately.

One dream, two nights ago, was that one of my friends had invented a tampon gun. It was some kind of air pressure operated gun which looked a bit like a toy machine gun, and with which you could shoot cellophane wrapped tampons at people. You would just simply pour a box of tampons into a reservoir on the top of the gun, and they would come out one by one with an audible "Phoomp" every time you pulled the trigger. My friend was having a big laugh just randomly shooting tampons at people, but then at some point, I said, "Mate, that's quite enough now. You need to grow up!"

The other dream was about a garage where I often have my car serviced. They've got a quite cosy customer lounge where you can have tea or coffee and watch TV while you wait for your car, leather sofas and all. So anyway, in my dream, somehow, I was sitting in that customer area, and turning the TV to a porn channel with the remote control, and started rubbing one out. Then I was asked to go into the shop to one of the mechanics and discuss what they had done with my car, and I said to the mechanic, "How are you, mate? Been a while since I was here!". And he replied, "I don't know, Anon... I haven't quite absorbed the fact yet that you just wanked yourself off in our customer lounge!".

Have you ever seen an actual Nerf gun? They fire things which look exactly like tampons. I'm not sure how this helps you interpret your dream.

What I find much more bizarre is that there are actually people in real life who have built tampon guns:

I honestly had never heard of anything like that before I had my dream.

On the other hand, tampons are almost the perfect non-harmful projectile, when you think about it. They are bullet shaped as it is, they will very probably not do any damage whatsoever to the target that you are firing them at, and the cellophane wrapping should ensure that they will remain rigid enough inside the barrel of an air pressure gun to not disintegrate before exiting it.

In my dream, the tampon gun was much more advanced though than in the two links above. I think it was powered by a CO2 cartridge, similar to a paintball gun. And like I said, it had a reservoir on top where you would just put in a box worth of tampons, and the gun would fire them one by one automatically when you pulled the trigger.
