About 15 years ago a mate mentioned a series of books in which the Vikings and the Native Americans had the first industrial revolution.

Anyone got an idea what the fuck they are called or who the author was? I don't think it is Alan Smale from what I have read.

I am desperate to read them, because it is really pissing me off that I cannot find them.

I've vaguely interested in learning to interpret tarot but I haven't a clue where to start. Various sources advise developing your own understanding of the different cards and suits, essentially "how do they make you feel?", but I can't help but feel you could assign any meaning to any card and essentially have your own deck of personal divination tools. You might as well use pokemon trading cards and say Hypno is representative of this or that and interacts with Beedrill because Psychic is strong against Poison (although i guess there is some significance in the pokemon I chose to example, in fact I'm finding meaning in it quite easily). But you get what I mean. Or maybe I don't.

I suppose what I'm really asking is; is there a classic text on tarot, where would I go to learn the intended meaning behind the elements within the cards, etc.

The cynic in me dismiss it all without a second thought. But my misses bought a book on tarot based on the art, and it fascinates me how many little bits of symbolism and quirks there are when i started reading what the cards 'meant'. You hit the nail on the head about it being vague and vapid, that is by design, like all of those 'not meant to be taken literally' passages in the bible. The whole thing is cold reading really, it paints in broad brush strokes and you assign what you want to it all. As far as I'm aware it was never originally meant to have mystical powers but that was added later to add spice to it. Much like wigia boards were original a paker bros board game and all of the negative association is purely a result of 'the exorcist'. Funny how these things start off more mundane but society makes them supernatural.

If you're an extrovert I imagine being famous is absolutely no problem. If you're an introvert it would be a nightmare.

I'm very much the latter and even the minor local renown of being in an underground heavy metal band became too much. If I was making loads of dosh it would be fine, but I wasn't, I just kept getting asked "You're him from (band) aren't you?" by teenagers with poor hygiene.

Fortunately, all the venues in town have closed down and taken the last vestiges of a music scene with them. It was shit anyway.

I can't ever stop thinking.

I can't cut loose, ever. It doesn't matter how much I drink -- though the overthinking prevents me from drinking too much most of the time.

I can never enjoy a night out (even if I enjoy the music, which is rare) because I'm just constantly going over stuff in my head, usually thinking how much of a cunt I must look.

I just want to be able to just forget about how I'm getting home, or over conversations I've had months ago, or if I'm acting right for the situation, or if I've just said or done the wrong thing, or what I'm going to do tomorrow and extensively planning it, but I can't, ever. People always say to me "you always overthink everything, just be yourself and cut loose"; I can't though.

I don't dance because of a crushing anxiety that I'll look like a cunt.

I've reached out for help with anxiety and heard nothing from the NHS for months and had appointments with my job counsellor (who isn't very useful anyway) cancelled repeatedly.

What the fuck can I do? A lobotomy is looking good right now.

How did you go about getting an ADD diagnosis?
I've not been officially diagnosed with it, but I'm gonna go ahead and say I definitely have/had a severe anxiety disorder (working on it after many years of self reflection and realising how abnormal my functioning/thinking was), and I think a lot of my personality could be described well through ADD symptoms.

I've also got a diagnosis for aspergers.

I can attest that it is indeed age. It happens with everything, hangovers get worse, and everything from a heavy coke night to acid trips leave you increasingly fragile as you age. It takes me several days to recover from the low self-esteem and social anxiety after any sort of bender now.

I have concluded, during these periods of agonising self reflection, that it is inevitable and unavoidable to become more emotionally sensitive as you grow older, having more experiences and memories under your belt. There's more for your mind to dwell on, and arguably you have a better capacity to understand the implications of your deeds. When you're a young lad you can easily laugh off that awkward night out where you nearly slept with your co-worker, when you're a few years older you know it's going to be something you both think about whenever you're in the same room, what if, why didn't you, you're probably still going to one day... It's hard to escape your own thoughts, as the OP well knows.

That, and, "getting older" as a person who likes to take drugs means you are, over a longer and longer term, using drugs. Drugs don't tend to be great for your emotional stability.

As someone whose immediate family works with drugs (and the bad things that can happen should one abuse them) I've had it beaten into me that drugs are bad, and I worry that along with this whole destructive thought cycle, that subconscious beating will manifest and it'll be a bad time.

I do want to try MD/LSD at least once but don't know if I'll ever be ready.

In terms of alcohol, I rarely drink much, though I do drink often. I hate the feeling of being drunk because I don't feel in control. I feel like, again, when I'm thinking about how I'll get home and if everyone is going to be safe, that having more alcohol will end badly -- even if it won't.

Sutton reserve goalkeeper Wayne Shaw is under investigation by the Football Association for potentially breaching betting rules during Monday's FA Cup loss to Arsenal.

The Gambling Commission is also investigating if there was a breach of betting regulations after Shaw ate a pie in the 83rd minute of the game.

Before Monday's game, a bookmaker offered odds of 8-1 that Shaw would eat a pie on camera during the match.

So I failed my driving test today. I was too busy checking my mirrors and my lane positioning at a roundabout to notice the solid amber light which turned red as I drove past it, and I got a few minor faults for waiting behind buses when I should have come around them. It didn't help that my examiner was fairly friendly and chatty, which lulled me into complacency.

Failing is a learning experience so I'm not too bothered about it, but what really annoys me is that the next available slot for a test in my area is in the middle of June. There are cancellation checker services out there that can often find an earlier slot, but I'd probably get a cancellation for mid to late April, and in the meanwhile the skills I've built up will start to get rusty.

Is heading to somewhere a bit more depopulated or rural a good bet? I can get a test in somewhere like Cumbria or the Scottish highlands for next week. I've always wanted to see those places and the test centres there have pass rates ranging from around 60%-80% compared to 45%, so a practical exam/holiday wouldn't be as far-fetched as it initially seems.

I'm learning to drive in north London, and fuck me do people drive/cross the road like nutters around here. I did think about whether it's worth trying to get a practical test booked in Hertfordshire or something. I'll probably be limited by how far my instructor wants to go though, as I'll want to use the same car I've been learning in. Probably something to bear in mind if you decide to go on a holiday/test - worth giving yourself a solid day or two with whatever car you will use.

My fridge freezer has just broke down. I'm moving in a month to a new place which has a fridge so I don't see much point in getting a new one or paying to have this fixed.

The only problem is I barely eat anything that isn't in a fridge or freezer so I'm not sure how to survive for the next month. All I can think of is tinned beans and soup.

I don't even like beans.

Can anyone suggest stuff I can get that I can actually make a variety of full meals out of?

A side note is I always make my own sandwiches for work, these are usually with cold meat or spreads that I keep in the fridge. I work 13 hour shifts so I generally take a lot. What can I now use as a substitute?

Get some of the soya mince from the recipe thread or some beanfeast. All you need to do is add a bit of water and (for the soya mince) some seasoning and you'll be reet.

I lived in Brazil without a fridge, freezer, or any kind of cooker for six months and lived to tell the tail.

I was also on about a quid a day, although that probably doesn't count for much given the different economies (at least back in 2005).

I basically lived off bananas, yoghurt, and cashew nuts. For the first month I still had a sort of "luncheon voucher" type deal worth about 2 quid a day which I used to trade in for a hot lunch (or rather 70% of a hot lunch) most days.

Anyway, enough of my pitiful past.

The bananas thing is good for you. Two bananas a day is very good for you and they don't need much storage especially in the UK. Beyond that if you want Real Meals I think you're going to have to go the old eggs n rice and beans/lentils route. Try to at least incorporate a 1kg bag of frozen broccoli or spinach into each of your cooking cycles. If that's not feasible try 500g bags. You can probably turn that into lunch and dinner. Trust me when I say that if you eat nothing but chicken and rice your ringpiece will hate you.

I realise that storing a lunch made the night before until you go to work the next day can be hard, but try the "suspend it off the window ledge in a tesco carrier bag" method. That shit never worked in Brazil, obviously, but it worked fine in amsterdam for almost six months while I was too autistic to get my fridge/freezer fixed by the landlord.

Eggs don't go off even at room temperature. Nor does most cheese. If you hit tesco / sainsbury's / whatever at the right time you can get decent meat to cook each night for an ok price without having to buy in bulk and freeze or refrigerate.

I suppose what I'm saying is; don't fall for the "eat pasta, rice, noodles, bread, whatever" diet; there are plenty of things out there that can make your diet feasible that don't need a fridge or freezer.

Indian cooking is great for this sort of thing. Pretty much every (vegetarian) Indian meal tends to be based around ingredients that aren't too fussy about being kept in a fridge.

Why frozen? Fresh broccoli will keep perfectly fine in a cupboard for a few day, it might even last a whole week with luck.

/fat/4218 Snory bastard
I'm a snory bastard, says the Mrs.
This is true, always have been. Thin, fat, fit, flabby, drunk, dry, calm, stressed - always snored.

Just snoring. Purring turned up to max. No gurgling, no gasping, no changes, just relentless.
Clearly, this is pissing her off, and there's fuck all I can do to stop it while I'm sleeping, since I'm asleep. My nose is always pretty bunged up, has been since I was a wee kid. I'm allergic to many things - rampant seasonal hayfever, and some foods, which I avoid no problem, but always pretty bunged. Not with snot, just not much airflow.
So - is there anything I can do while awake? I already don't sleep on my back (easy enough, I wake up as I went to sleep, thumb in book).
Tempted by beconase (or a knockoff) or antihistamines, but open to suggestions.

(She also snores, but IDGAF. 30 seconds of irritation and I'm back asleep).

You probe have an allergy to dust mites, which live in your bed. I have that, and the same with alcohol, and the SMELL of ground coffee. All of the above causes my sinuses to swell. Treatment may not make a diff' to your snoring though. Get your lass some earplugs

Hard to see how it's apnea, since that's when you stop breathing for a while. I just continuously snore. Therefore - no health risk (except from stabbing), as I understand it.

Not dust mites, happens wherever we are. Home, spare room if I'm banished, hotels, ferries.

Yeah, I understand it's her that's got the problem, she shouldn't be such a light sleeper. She already wears earplugs. If it's a choice between an easy fix to stop me snoring, and drugging her into oblivion every night, I'll probably choose the former.

Snoring is the warning sign of sleep apnoea. Most snoring is benign, but for a significant proportion of patients it indicates the early stages of sleep apnoea. Suffocating in your sleep is one of those things you want to catch early.

Go and see your GP.

Should I revoke my labour party membership if I find myself looking specifically for English people to employ over people whose surnames sound Middle Eastern, SE Asian, and Eastern European? I'm a bongo myself, but in my experience it's far easier to deal with regular English people because there's obviously less of a language barrier and they tend to be more honest.

/emo/24294 bi-romantic?
I was in straight relationships until I was in my early twenties - all of them failed because I wasn't happy. I loved my boyfriends dearly, but I couldn't stand to have sex with them after the initial period and it would eventually break down.

I figured it might be my fault - then I fell in love with a woman, had my first gay relationship, realised I was very gay and I actually loved sex.

I've 'fallen in love'/developed 'crushes' with men before, men who I've dated, men that I haven't, men that I've just been friends with. In hindsight, I figured they were just very strong feelings of platonic love and affection that I confused for something romantic (I never allowed myself to entertain the possibility that I was gay for many years) because I didn't know any better.

But recently, I've developed strong feelings for a man again, and I still feel like I've fallen into romantic love. This man is a close friend, but he's more than that to me. I miss him when he leaves the room. I love all his flaws and awkwardness. I love to hear his voice, I dream about him at night, I want to cuddle him and keep him by my side and even kiss him. But not really any more than that. He's a handsome and fit man, but I don't like men's bodies. I want to kiss him but I recoil at the thought of touching or being touched by him in a sexual way. I've occasionally had thoughts of making love to him, but with all the mechanics of the act censored out in my mind and with the consideration that I would feel no actual sexual gratification yet I would be satisfied by the experience just because it's with him.

What's wrong with me? I really hate all this lgtbqa++++ build-your-own-sexual-identity bullshit, but here I find myself unable to define my own sexuality. Sometimes I really wish I was bisexual, but I'm not. Am I 'bi-romantic'? Am I going to go my whole life falling in love with men that Ill never be able to physically engage with?

OP, are you sure that you have not been molested as a child? Some people manage to block the experience out, and then wonder why they manifest strange sexual behaviours later.

Maybe you can find a man willing (or desperate) enough to accept an asexual relationship?

Or you could just ask yourself if it really matters what you, or other people define you as.

Why resign yourself to the pointless need of labelling and defining things? You could just as easily simply think of your sexuality as "fluid". That may not be a satisfying answer for people who will ask you if you are gay, straight or bi and then expect you to deliver an answer that allows them to neatly pigeonhole you into one of those three categories,, but what matters is that you will be comfortable with your own self image. As somebody with a fluid sexuality, or whatever else you consider calling yourself, to yourself.

The irony of our times is that while heteronormativity has increasingly been broken up, even with all those new categories of sexual preference that some people believe have emerged, you are still expected to slot yourself into one of those fixed categories. While it doesn't exactly appear clear what the benefit is of swapping one fixed category for five or six equally rigid categories.

/b/408804 Porn
With the rise of pornography and fast internet connections, there are increasing numbers of lads who fap to traps and femboys who could be convincing traps. If I remember the studies correctly, "chicks with dicks" is the biggest growing genre of porn for people who classify themselves as heterosexual, because they have every sexual stimulus in one package.

The problem as I see it is this: convincing traps are rarer than hen's teeth in the real world, so it seems to me that there are many men who are getting their rocks off to unicorns when the world is full of horses, which can't be healthy.

Come to think of it, the same argument could be applied to porn in general: men are conditioning themselves to be aroused by attractive porn starlets, while most women in the real world aren't particularly attractive. I was thinking of including women's standards for men in my drunk but completely cogent and bulletproof line of reasoning, but then I remembered that essentially women don't have the same level of agency as men and tend to go with the flow, so you can't apply the same standards to them.
