Satire transcends finding a political solution and just helps us laugh at the absurdities of life. When South Park does get political however it's libertarian in outlook which doesn't need to justify itself so much as point out the solutions are all awful and poke fun at the kinds of people who want to impose their vision on others.

Orville didn't actually have that bad a first episode. I don't know how long this parody series can last but I think it captured some of the old magic of Star Trek and was played much straighter than the trailers showed.

At the very least they used science to defeat their enemy rather than punches. Maybe STD won't be so bad either.

Evening, Mumsnet lads.

I'm running low on ideas of what to read to my son [7]. We're working our way through the Mr Gum books and if I can't think of something when we're finished my other half will probably subject him to Enid Blyton. We've read The Hobbit and all of Ronald Dahl's books for children but I don't know where to go next, possibly Harry Potter (although I've never read them so I don't know what they're like) or maybe something by Terry Deary as he's obsessed with ancient Egypt. Goosebumps?

I'd be grateful for any tips. Any books you were particularly fond of from your childhood?

Since this is up top again, I'm going to repeat my support for the Bartimaeus trilogy (>>5762) because they were so much fun when I was young, its about a young twatty kid in a pseudo-alternative reality where the British empire is still on the go, and a certain class of people (aristocracy types) can summon different levels of imps, genies, etc. It's about this kid who gives it a shot at a young age and his adventures with this sassy Djinn called Bartimaeus and how they end up getting involved in higher level politics (that makes it sound dull but it's really not).

Please give it a shot, I might buy the first again since I've lost it. It's not that well known a series but it was my favourite series at the time. I think I read it when I was about 12.

Also, Artemis Fowl. Rich supervillain child gets involved with a (literally) underground civilisation of super technologically advanced 'fairies' who have kept themselves secret from humanity for millenia. He runs into a fairy who is a newbie officer for the L.E.P. Recon unit.

Great stuff.

To be fair to hollywood, the religious messages in the book were so offensive to most of America (and enough of the rest of the world) that the only options they had were to massively deviate from the book, or not make it at all.
The correct decision would have been to not make the film at all.

here's the quick rundown:

>girl i like
>like a whole lot
>childhood friend
>known her since forever
>asked her out
>she said no

that was about 2 months ago.
i told my friend about it and he said i need to confess my feelings to her properly, anime style.
she's going to uni next year, meanwhile, i'm a permavirgin NEET of 2 years with no job, no A levels (college dropout), and no car.
i've been trying to escape the NEET life and better myself. job hunting, going to the gym, and i want to get into college this year too.
i feel like if i rushed into a confession now i would sperg it up and end up committing the 'cide.
should i just go for it or should i try to get more comfortable around women first? how can i do that?

Nothing can so easily send me into apoplectic rage and simultaneous fits of laughter as non-nonsensical photographs in advertising and marketing. I couldn't decide where this thread belongs best as it's both irritating and entertaining at the same time.

Lidl has some brilliant examples, for instance this picture of a woman who is clearly off her tits on some research chems and is seeing hallucinations of vegetables flying around her head.

I fucking loathe takeaway menus that get posted through my door with shitty cropped pictures of food splashed around the page with varying degrees of actual food size, gigantic pieces of chicken next to tiny drink cans etc.
It's petty but annoys me nevertheless, if it wasn't for Justeat I'd end up deciding on places strictly on the quality of these menus.

Sounds good. I've never gone that far but I do occasionally do egg drop noodles (toss in an egg to cook in the water when you're boiling the noodles, takes a bit of learning but it won't take more than a go or two to figure it out). Works best with a duck egg, their yolk is really rich and complements the otherwise rather artificial "umami" (MSG) of flat-pack instant noodles.

/b/412641 Hurricane Irma
So, this is a long way from home, but nevertheless it's quite terrifying, currently it's joint 2nd (out of 4) for the fastest ever recorded windspeed in a hurricane at 185mph. There has been some speculation that given its current progress it could break the current record and reach 195mph.
It looks set to make landfall on the US as a category 5 hurricane. Two major hurricanes hitting the US in the same year is rare, especially so close to each other (and another storm on track to be declared a hurricane any time now.)

Yet in the middle of all this, there are people standing on their balconies, in the middle of 100mph winds and livestreaming this on their mobile phones. In a way it's incredibly surreal.

>Sir Richard Branson is riding out Hurricane Irma in the wine cellar on his private island

You couldn't make it up.

It's not his fault that he's stuck on his private island for the duration of the storm. But he could have been a bit more careful about his choice of words. Some trailer trash folk over there who are bound to lose everything in the hurricane might take it the wrong way.

He could have just said "We'll board up the windows and hide out in the basement". Technically about the same thing, but without that air of a British upper class toff.

Before we found all the natural gas in the north sea, we used to make gas by heating up coal. The gas board would bake coal in giant ovens, producing coal gas and coke. Coal gas was good stuff, but it was also very high in carbon monoxide. If you stuck your head in the oven and turned the gas on without lighting it, you'd be fatally poisoned within minutes.

I've met a lot of vegans, and I'm struggling to recall if a single one of them was actually like this. This is a stereotype.

And I bet how it developed is how you mention your wife is treated. When someone reveals offhand they have a different diet ("no thank you, I'm vegan") they will be subjected to all sorts of intrusive questions about their lifestyle and beliefs, and if said person takes the opportunity to wax lyrical about said beliefs, it becomes misremembered as though they were the ones who brought it up and wanted to let everyone know.

You may have a point, but I've definitely met quite a few obnoxious vegans. Maybe I just move in the wrong circles, but I've had more than one conversation with Morrisey-level vegans.

Honeywell has since revealed the scandal cost her her friendship with Justin Fletcher, one of CBeebies' highest-paid stars best known for playing Mr. Tumble.

She wrote: 'I regret losing my wonderful friendship with Justin. The day my picture went in the paper with the headline, 'Cboobies' I never heard from my lovely friend again.'

Fletcher, 46, has long been the channel's hottest property and is said to earn six figure sums from the lucrative live shows that he puts on.

/uhu/2321 Shower circuit replacement.
So, I'm currently thinking about moving house and going up north. I've had the estate agents around and the long and short of it is that if I can put my washing machine in the bathroom then that would be good.
I currently have a disconnected power for the shower in there, it's 6mm flat twin and earth, I thought about just putting a socket in there but from what I can find building regs say no unless its directly wired into a switch fused spur and has a 30mA RCD fitted. I've had a look at my consumer unit and found that the shower only has a 40A MCB on it. I'm thinking that I could smash a hole on the other side of the wall and mount a small shower consumer unit to with the appropriate RCD's to it and feed a smaller cable through to a switch fused spur, I know I'm doubling up on it where I probably don't need to but I can't see 6mm cables going into a Screwfix RCD fused spur, maybe they will, I dunno, maybe mount the shower consumer unit in the bathroom.. Any help would be appreciated.

Get an electrician in. If you breach Part P of the building regs, you'll invalidate your home insurance. The regulations on installations in a bathroom are extremely complicated. It's just not worth the risk IMO.

Honestly lad, the first thing I'll say is that when it comes to anything involving bathroom circuitry or wiring to consumer units, if you need to ask for help then you shouldn't be doing it in the first place.

Secondly, I'm not a qualified electrician so take my advice with a pinch of salt whatever you do.

If you're committed to doing this, the first rule you need to know is that any electrical socket in the bathroom has to be at least 3m away from any bath, shower or sink.
Also bear in mind... If you sell the house, at some point there will be surveyors along to inspect it before the mortgage goes through, and if your work isn't 100% perfect it could bite you in the arse.

Get an electrician to take a look, at the very least just get a quote before you start anything yourself.

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.

/emo/25406 shit tests women play on you
So I've just come out of a ten-month relationship with a lass who was becoming ever more unbearable. She had pretty serious self esteem issues, and always both needed endless support with even the simplest decisions and continuously tried to test the quality of our relationship. Yes, you may rightly say that women do that, but with her, it was just a constant fucking struggle. Pointless hypothetical questions were standard, such as, "Would you still love me if I was as ugly as that girl over there?" (pro tip: don't say "yes", say "But you'll never be that ugly", in the hope that calling a random girl undesirable based on her looks wasn't the wrong answer at that moment), or "Do you want this pendant back if we break up?" I carelessly got her a pendant for our 6 month anniversary. Right answer probably would have been "Oh, but don't you now, my sweet darling, we'll never break up for all eternity!". But I just shrugged and said "I don't care", with an ironic smile that appeared to go unnoticed.

Or telling me about the latest drivel she had read in some women's magazine about "markers" of healthy romantic relationships, and asking me where I thought our relationship fit into that picture. The kind of subject matter a regular bloke would neither ever think about, nor be equipped to ponder with anywhere near the same amount of dedication as seems to be common with many women.

We reached a mutual understanding that our relationship was best not continued, after we had a massive fight last weekend when I wanted to go work on my car with my best mate instead of spending the day with her. She said "You never make me feel special". I then made the mistake of telling her that she needs to sort out her self esteem and shit test issues on her own time and not drag me or whatever partner will come after me down with her. She told me I was a cold-hearted arsehole for putting it that way. And the words "or any bloke that will come after me" really sent her into meltdown. It was then that we agreed that we should no longer see each other.

She brought this onto herself. She doesn't need a boyfriend, she needs a shrink. Or a boyfriend who is a shrink. For the nearest future, I think I am kind of done with women. I had too many WTF moments with her. It all just needs to settle before I feel I will have the enthusiasm again for a new relationship.

On the plus side, in my experience at least, this should be the beginning of the upswing for you. Once I realised that I wasn't having at fun at all drinking any more, and that I was only drinking to A) blot out deep emotional pain and B) to fend off fucking withdrawal symptoms, I was able to do as >>7963 suggests and start working towards dealing with my problems in a more constructive way.

You can just call them 'the left' and then pick your flavour of criticism based on their specific qualities the same way you wouldn't when being critical of the right call a free market capitalist a 'nazi', because it would be a nonsensical comparison to draw, but 'heartless sociopath' would be fine.

So the pension age has been stuck up again, this is due to the argument that more old people, more pension, more money etc etc etc.

However, if people work longer and we have more old people in employment, then aren't they going to block up the job market resulting in less jobs for young people? If there's less jobs for young people they will end up being dependent on the state and claim benefits.

Does this not mean that regardless of what is done it's going to hit one budget or the other, essentially? Either it's going to cost more long term in pension or more long term in benefits and essentially cancel out any gains made.

I'm only putting this out there as a thought I've had for a while and never really heard anyone else putting the point across and I was wondering, is that because I'm making a fucking stupid point?

Evolution isn't a force, you dipshit. Plus, force is the conversion of energy from one firm to another, so the question doesn't even make sense.

Technically, evolution is the process of change in inherited traits over successive generations. What you're describing is natural selection.
