Netball's ace, I never realised it was all the running that made me dislike basketball, until these games. It's a shame they're taking place on the other side of the planet because it makes actually watching them a pain in the arse. I had the same problem with the Winter Olympics. I guess everywhere's the opposite side of the planet to someone though, so I can't moan too much.

At some point, if she gets over her ex and realises that she has feelings for you that make her want to leave her past behind and focus on what a wonderful chap you are, here in the present, then the whole thing has a chance.

If she is just using you as a rebound, prepare to get your heart ripped out and handed to you.

Ask yourself what that lass is really worth to you. Is she just a passing fancy, or is this really somebody that you're really head over heels in love with.

There are many other women out there who would enjoy your attention just as much but aren't secretly still longing for their ex, you know.

/fat/4483 Going barefoot - Some thoughts from an armchair anthropologist
This thread isn't meant to be an argument for or against barefoot running or walking, or whatever associated footwear is best.There are already a million and one youtuibe videos, forums posts, blogs etc. all covering the exact same arguments.
I made this thread because of a shower thought I had that I wanted to write down somewhere.

So the preamble; giving people padded heels generally fucks up their posture. You can slouch, your bum sticks out, your shoulders hunch up, you walk by swinging your legs and your head bobs up and down. It's awful and if you start walking like that it takes a lot of effort to retrain yourself to walk upright with a good posture.
When you walk or run barefoot, (or in minimalist shoes which meet all the criteria, and very few truly do), it's nearly impossible to walk with bad posture (at least for any significant distance). You have to forefoot strike, which forces you to walk upright, shoulders back, and you have to use your whole body which means moving your hips and core muscles.
So then, people ask if barefoot is so amazing, why did people ever start to wear modern-style shoes to begin with?
The reasoning that pretty much everyone always makes is along the lines of "it's more comfortable" or "you can run faster and not hurt as much" or things along those lines.
The arguments never quite add up, and this adds fuel to the arguments and cunt-offs that surround the subject.


Finally this leads to the point of this thread. I am a convert to minimalist running and walking, but my argument is nevertheless against it. And as far as I can remember, it's a reason that I haven't seen anywhere else.
The reason that our ancestors started wearing shoes with heels, and partly why people still do today, has little to do with comfort or fashion or sporting performance, even though these are the conscious reasons that everyone believes in.
The real reason:

I think our environment has become a lot tamer since the shoe was originally invented in a way that you don't give credit. I go mountaineering and if you attempted some of the stuff I've done barefooted your foot would either get cut off or fall off. To me the necessity of shoes feels self-evident from what I expect of them.

I would have presumed the increased thickness of the heel would have come from a pure mechanical position. either based on that that is the area that would wear down quickest so making it thicker would mean you could go longer without replacing shoes or that if you step on something you put your full weight on your heel so if you don't want things going through the shoe and into your foot you need to make it thicker.

I'm not a shoe historian or whatever but I can imagine the first shoe a hunter-gatherer wanting would just be a leather wrap, essentially - offering a bit of protection but still the 'feel' of the land, which would have been useful.

Thus something like those weird Vibrams would probably be pretty close.

My theory on prominent heels is because they'd have been useful for horseback riding, to keep your feet in stirrups - so a relatively modern invention, but a practical one at first. The fact they make you look taller and the shoes last longer probably helped make them the status quo, rather than people wanting that 16th century shwagga.

It's amazing how hard wearing your feet get if you let them - I've worked on my feet for most of my life, in shite, tough boots, so my feet are hard as fuck on the bottom. I actually can stand on glass without it piercing my foot, so I can only imagine what someone who goes barefoot running or indeed the tribal folk who have never worn shoes must be able to handle.

Heh, I've got a pair of those pictured (I use them as slippers). If you can stomach wearing five-fingers in public they might serve, but as comfortable as they are they do look like you wrapped your feet in rags. The "Icon" version, on the other hand, is comparatively stealthy. They look like trainers at the front (give or take being thin material, so if you wiggle your toes you can see it). I've worn the latter in public and have not yet drawn any comments from friends and colleagues.

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?

> Tiffany Aching is one of Terry's best characters

I'm not a Young Adult so my opinion probably doesn't count for much, but imo he Mary-Sued the hell out of her in a way that made the rapid and largely inexplicable social rises of Vimes and Von Lipwig to seem almost rational. The only book in the that sub-series I liked was Wintersmith, plot, characterisation, character growth, good stuff.

> , if you're looking for a meatier segue after you're finished. The Wee Free Men will introduce him to Granny Weatherwax at the end, and you can jump off into her books from there, returning to Tiffany Aching

You'd probably be better off working from Wee Free Men up to I shall wear Midnight or at least Wintersmith if you want to keep the city watch and Esk and so on out of the picture at first, then go back to the earlier witches books and work your way forward.

Jumping straight from a Mary Sue with an iron saucepan fairy tale like the wee free men back into books as early in the series as Equal Rites or even Wyrd Sisters would, imo, be too jarring.

While I'm here:

I never really considered the NMF as plot armour for T because her plot armour comes directly from being the impossible heroine in a series of children's' novels.

We see this very early on when the queen of the elves, who would have defeated Granny Weatherwax herself in Lords and Ladies if sly old Nanny Ogg hadn't gone down the long mound and done a malcolm tucker on the King. You have to remember that whatever borrowing Granny did with the bees wasn't offensive in nature, it was purely to survive the Queen's attack while everything only went back to normal when the King turned up and said "c'mon lads, nough ching the night la les get haem for wuz forget wuz fukkin uber is fur".

Anyway, this basically undefeatable elven queen who had to be disposed of by way of subterfuge by two of the Ramtops' most powerful witches is then done away with by a 9yo with a frying pan.

Suspension of disbelief and all that, but they could have at least built her up over the books rather than having basically giving her powers beyond all the other witches right off the bat - he might have well slapped Glasses and a birthmark in the shape of her dead gran's old dead sheepdogs and called her Harriot Puking ("I'm puking when I go to bed and I'm puking when I wake up" - the dad was an alkie).

For what little it's worth, I think that T becoming the kelda, briefly, in the first book is more of a deus ex to keep the NMH around to provide comic relief between Pratchett's increasingly nonsensical multi-threaded plots with rushed and unsatisfactory conclusions (because hey Terry it's, like, October and we've got to go print 20 million copies of whatever you have sort of half ready before Christmas) and some of the worst pseudo-sexual innuendo that I've ever seen in a young adult series.

>in my experience

i.e "I am talking out of my arse".

I've no particular dog in this fight because my social ethics lies so far outside of the norm as to make the boomer/millennial thing irrelevant to me. However, you can hardly blame today's young people for being slightly bitter- they have to work harder than anybody has done in generations, relatively speaking, but society simply refuses to acknowledge it. They're the generation that grew up through shopping centre hoody bans and ASBOs for congregating in groups of more than four, whereas their grandmas and grandads were getting trolleyed on pills and wrecking seaside resorts at the same age. They spend what should be their most carefree years sat at home fretting about their A-levels, and yet that older generation still has the audacity to call them spoiled.

Millennials are not averse to putting the work in, what stings for them is the fact nobody will jut hold their hands up and say "Fair's fair, you could buy a house on four month's wages in my day. Give them some credit."

>I suppose I am privileged in the sense that I was fortunate enough that my parents instilled in my the importance of a good worth ethic and the value of education but I come from a poor background.
So you're more the deluded sort then? Got it.

>Whilst I won't have it as easy as my parents
That's not a "whilst", it's the crux of the problem. For a good few centuries now, every generation has had it better than their parents. From the beginnings of the industrial revolutions up to around the late 1980s, young adults came of age and would go on to enjoy better lives than the generation before. People born in the 1980s onwards, coming of age around the turn of the century, are the exception. They're the first generation to be worse off than their parents. The first generation to have to earn things their forebears were merely granted. The first generation to effectively have to justify their own existence while the rest of society pisses on them. The first generation, not this century, not for the past half-century, but all the way back to the fucking Georgians. The very fabric of the social contract is breaking apart.

Today's under-40s are the best behaved, most responsible, most productive, best educated, most tolerant and most forward-thinking generations in the history of this country. Their elders have repaid them by selling the family silver for a holiday home on the Costa Blanca and an end to Bloody Forrinuhs Roonin Are Cuntry.

>The report adds that scrapping free bus passes could cost the UK economy more than £1.7bn a year due to the likely decline in volunteering [...]
That isn't necessarily a bad thing. In many cases, they're doing work that really ought to be paid for, and this is one of the common arguments that gets raised against "workfare" schemes.

>the under-25s, who are more likely to be in good physical health, less likely to suffer from isolation and less likely to do voluntary work.
They're also more likely to be unemployed (as distinct from retired). God knows when I was that age and signing on the legwork would have been a lot less painful if it wasn't costing me £5 a day to get around.

If young people didn't want to leave the European Union then they should have got off their arses and voted. The vote was won by a fine margin and the result could very easily have been different if the young had actually bothered to go out and vote instead of leaving it up to other people.

Well I'm a total prat because I've been telling people for years that it's the opposite; you can get a 4 person family fed and watered (1 meal and 2 drinks each) and back out the door and the table clear in an hour while an old mooch like me will take up an entire table for eight hours and only do eight pints.

Then again I was always told that pubs were barely breaking even on the booze, so - again - who knows. Bloke who told me this worked for Punch Taverns if that means anything.

No, that's the thing. The police came in the door like it was a SWAT raid, figured out in about 2 seconds flat that it wasn't a dangerous situation and no crime had been committed and offered me to a lift to the hospital (again: I wasn't arrested, no cuffs etc). As soon as we got to the hospital the police left us at the door to A&E and left. It was the hospital that detained me.

I apologise for potential lack of paragraphs.

OK but why compare narrative and character-driven period dramas such as Les Mis and Hamilton to these cash-ins?

Are you seriously trying to suggest that's what less mis is? It's just as lowbrow as any of them, but it tries to dress itself up posh, like a pie from waitrose.

(And this is coming from someone who has actually been in it)

Am I trying to suggest Les Mis is a period drama with a character-driven narrative? Yes, yes I am. Can you explain to me how it isn't?

So I've got a weird one here, I'm self employed and work a full time day job, I'm also a fitness nut obsessed with weights and running, I do nothing I enjoy and sleep 3-5 hours a night. I look like a zombie and suffer from constant fatigue, How do I allow myself to have free time? There's ALWAYS something productive I could be doing. Can't justify having more sleep or playing a game that requires anymore than 10 minutes attention, when I could be working out or growing my business.

It doesn't take much to realise that that in itself is pure unmitigated marketing hogwash.

However, you can't say that Mark Zuckerberg isn't an evil genius, having conned billions of people on the planet into what could well be the biggest racket in history. Only, a racket normally implies fraudulent and/or illegal behaviour. Maybe that's his true genius. Doing all that, and it was perfectly legal.

I wouldn't say perfectly legal. Though, if we use the same old tired bullshit that the likes of Facebook like to spout, we could say they're merely a platform for people to do illegal things.

You're right in that in some cases, providing the premises for a crime to be committed is just as illegal.

Like when you provide a web site where paedos can share kiddie porn. It doesn't matter if you yourself are a paedo and trade said kiddie porn. It's enough that you were involved in that sort of thing by providing a place on the Internet for them to share their filth.

OP here, I've stopped running as much because I've fucked up my knees (from running too much). I've also stopped setting an alarm to wake myself up when I can afford to do that. I've gained an extra 1-2 hours sleep daily.

/beat/8707 Cover songs
The Pet Shop Boys' Always On My Mind has been voted the top cover version of all time in a BBC Music vote.

The song, written by John Christopher, Mark James and Wayne Carson, was first made famous by Brenda Lee and Elvis Presley in 1972.

Johnny Cash's cover of Nine Inch Nails' Hurt came in second place, followed by The Stranglers' version of Dionne Warwick's Walk On By. Jimi Hendrix's take on Bob Dylan's All Along The Watchtower came fourth. Jeff Buckley's cover of Leonard Cohen's classic Hallelujah completed the top five.

Not keen on that version of Walk On By but I like the rest. I reckon I'd have to have a good think about my favourite covers and I'm sure I'd still forget some.

UK outdoor bud spots 2018 - who is growing?
I have one spot cleared and nearly camouflaged (by cut bushes & young trees) and another partially cleared and in the process of being camouflaged. Hoping to harvest 10 autos and 10 regs - Sweet Cheese Auto and marple Maroc. They are adjacent to a train line. The only likelihood for discovery lies in the smell. Having checked the prevailing wind to assess the likelihood of this I can state that it is likeliest in October, unless eddies on the hillside cause the smell to rise up against the direction of the wind up the hillside to a nearby footpath.

I will be using 10/12L buckets (£1 each from the Poundshop) with 10L compost in each and holes in the bottom, with the lower half buried in holes in the ground to retard dehydration such that they require less frequent watering. FBB (fish, blood and bone) fertiliser and rabbit-proof cages and slug-poison pellets will be used - standard practice.

I am now a fan of folding saws for spot-clearance.

Good luck! Photos can't be provided as I lack a camera.

Growing, but not outdoors. Good move with burying them in buckets. How do you disguise the area around it? I like the sound of it being near a railway, but aren't you concerned about the possibility of passers-by as it were?

Presumably you'll be all harvested by October? What is the average vegetation/flowering time in the UK? (realise that is a piece of string question depending on the strain but ykwim)

>>2758 One has to make the clearings away from footpaths and paying attention to the prevailing wind so the smell wouldn't carry;
to disguise the spot you have to cut spiky bushes, hawthorne and brambles, and weave living ones through to create an opaque mesh of vegetation that appears like a natural barrier. Ideally do this in winter, then as the living parts of the mesh screen grow, it looks like a natural barrier covered in leaves. Unless the potential discoverer knew the area well they would not give it a second glance.

An important part of making camo screens is not to make dense, thin walls but rather thicker, less dense "walls" maybe a metre or two thick, or it looks wrong from the outside.
For non-autoflowers, I'd hope to plant out 5/6 inch seedlings on the 1st of May and harvest by the 1st of october.

OP Here. cannabis seedlings substituted for edibles now; two spots complete. I am growing a lot of morning glory, they are currently 1 inch high seedlings. I am growing 5/6 runner bean plants, 5 potatoes, 5/6 onions seeded, some herbs, and a lot of "climbing beans" from wilkinsons.
I am keeping myself entertained while unemployed. I am now tempted to get a camera and post a picture of my spots. There are three in total. I wonder how much food I can grow - maybe two months worth of potato carrot and climbing bean. I could eat for free for two months!

A new political party with access to up to £50m in funding has been secretly under development for more than a year by a network of entrepreneurs, philanthropists and donors keen to “break the Westminster mould”, the Observer can reveal.

The movement, spearheaded by a former Labour benefactor, is understood to have been drawn up by a group frustrated by the tribal nature of politics, the polarisation caused by Brexit and the standard of political leadership on all sides. It appears to have a centrist policy platform that borrows ideas from both left and right.

Senior figures from the worlds of business and charity are understood to be involved, as well as former supporters of the main parties, including a number of former Tory donors. Sources say the project, led by the multi-millionaire philanthropist and founder of LoveFilm, Simon Franks, has had full-time staff members for as long as a year. Initial discussions are said to have begun at the end of 2016. Franks has set up a company, Project One Movement for the UK, which is likely to be the vehicle for the enterprise.

Some of those involved have apparently been keen for the project to concentrate on funding community activism, rather than becoming a formal political party. A final decision has not yet been taken, but there is said to be a consensus that the movement will run candidates at the next election, due in 2022, should the current parties be deemed to be failing. Some form of political movement could be launched later this year.

There has been persistent speculation about the potential of a new party as Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership has taken Labour to the left, while a Tory hard Brexit has alienated some on that party’s modernising wing. The Lib Dems have been unable to take advantage of the polarisation.

While figures from across the political spectrum are said to be involved in Franks’s project, much of its policy platform appears to be aimed mainly at a liberal, centre-left audience. Potential policy proposals include asking the rich to pay a fairer share of tax, better funding for the NHS and improved social mobility. However, it also backs centre-right ideas on wealth creation and entrepreneurship, and is keen to explore tighter immigration controls. A source said some Brexit supporters are involved.

New Labour's back, lads.
