It's that time of the year again lads. I wish you all a lovely Ramadan. Share your Ramadan stories here, if you have any. Remember to give to the poor, refrain from the evils and temptations of modern society, and above all, remember to forgive.

Precisely. >>410962 If anything BRILLIANT comments just don't help at all, they just stoke the fire. It's fine to be afraid, angry, etc. A lot of people are and I think the reason is because these attacks are so unpredictable and that the people committing them don't have a clear goal, they just want chaos. All you can do is carry on, support people effected and try to redirect those emotions into something positive.

I don't want to go to sleep because I know that when I wake up, I'll just be depressed all day tomorrow.

Going for a walk doesn't help, taking a shower doesn't help, cleaning my room doesn't help.
All I do is lay around pleading with the void for death to arrive.

I don't know why I'm posting, someone will probably tell me to go to a doctor and I acknowledge that it's probably the most reasonable choice but it makes me sick with anxiety to even think about it. I'll probably just delete this thread in the morning.

Don't delete it, you don't really need to do anything with the advice that you're given- you've nothing to lose.

>someone will probably tell me to go to a doctor and I acknowledge that it's probably the most reasonable choice but it makes me sick with anxiety to even think about it

I think the first thing you should do is just work out a rough plan of what exactly is wrong, what you have tried, and how you're going to continue working your way through this. I found just running to the doctor to be unhelpful, but going with a little more experience was better.

Obviously, people will push doctors on you- I would say that you should look for some form of support, ideally from a doctor but it could also be a charity. I went through my universities short term counselling, and was recommended for longer term counselling, for which I had to find myself- I found a charitable option quite literally at the YMCA, and I used that twice for a year each time. I'm assuming you're not in university; you might have to hunt for this level of support, whether you go through the GP or otherwise.

If you have a close friend or family member that is open, you can go with them- I didn't have that though.

What is your support network like?

Seconding this. I know it sounds silly but after you read this go grab a pen and paper and write out your problem in detail along with possible solutions. You don't need to show anyone this but it will engage a more detached frame of mind for approaching the problem that isn't crippled by anxiety.

If you're stuck, like the other lad said numerous organizations and people can help even if it is just someone to talk it out with. If you're not comfortable with doing that then we're happy to lend an ear and a few of us who have battled these demons before can talk over what worked for us with the understanding that your experience may be different.

Maybe they were offered monetary incentive or threatened with deportation if they refused. Maybe the x-rays were taken as a matter of course to determine their health as they entered the country but their copies weren't analysed for age at the time.

As far as I can tell any mention of X-rays of the knee is just due to newspapers getting confused.
Dental X-rays were the existing method, but they're moving towards using MRI scans of the knees because it's both safer and more accurate.

I was riding my motorbike home and a pedestrian shouted "wanker" from the other side of the road.

I can't work out why they might have done this. I considered pulling over at the nearest opportunity, walking back down the road, and throttling the stupid cunt asking why.

This is bothering me more than it should.

I'm fairly certain everyone has had this happen to them at some point in their lives, but I honestly do not know why it's done.

I always liked Roger Moore best in The Persuaders.

Sad thing really that that show was axed after just one series. It had plenty of 70s swagger, and just a certain kind of cavalier playboyishness about it that would somewhat likely not get past today's TV censorship bodies. I believe one reason it was cancelled was that Roger Moore was not up for a second series because he was already being eyed as a replacement for Sean Connery for the Bond movies.

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 was doing ~45mph on an A road because I was looking for a turn off which I wasn't 100% sure where it was. Knobhead in a BMW starts tailgating me. I finally spotted it and put my indicators on early and when I'd started turning the knobhead overtakes me on the right-hand side. A few seconds later and he'd have ploughed straight into my car.

The drive outside my flat is wide enough for one car. There are a few parking bays on each side at slight angles to the drive.

Most people who park here drive all the way up to the end of the bay until one or both of their front wheels is touching the kerb. However there are some dickheads who stop a good foot or two away from the kerb, which means there's a lot less space behind them for people driving past or trying to reverse out of the other spaces.

And guess what, whenever someone parks like that, it's always a Mercedes or BMW. (It's not just one or two people, I've been here years and seen a succession of many dickheads in German cars who do this.)

One day last week my bus got stuck for around 10-15 minutes and had to give up because a BMW driver thought it was a good idea to just break down in the middle of the road and stay there. The street is just about wide enough for two vehicles, and the driver made no attempt to move the vehicle. Didn't push it, didn't ask for help to push it, didn't accept any offer of help to push it. Just fucking left it there. Two minibuses had to mount the kerb to get around it.

Last time I broke down in the middle of the road, I waited until it was safe to get out, signalled to people for help, and between three of us (a small woman sat inside to steer and brake) we got the car out of the way. That was from the middle lane of three on a busy dual carriageway during rush hour.

Absolutely nothing at all, it's just 90% of the posters here are utter fucking cunts. They wait until someone breaks some made up rule they have decided means they don't have to respond civilly, then mock you for it. The number rises to 100% when you look at the mods.

As for the question in the OP, depends how much life is left in the old dog. My local WMC is a lot quieter these days (according to my dad, who still pops in every now and then) compared with in the 90's. They only have acts on a Saturday now, and it's generally one bloke/girl singing with a backing track, and they are shit. Back in the day you would get a decent band on quite a few days of the week.

Just make sure not to talk during the bingo, they'll bury you under the bowling green.

Is there a sort of peaceful French Foreign Legion I can join where I won't be subject to brutal initiation rites at the hands of former Spetsnaz operatives? I've really fucked things in the most elementary of ways and I'd sincerely appreciate a purpose in life.

I've cocked up my most recent stumble into getting qualifications higher than mediocre at best GCSEs, and last Thursday I was very close indeed to going into some woods, taking a long a load of Paracetamol and slashing open my wrists. Instead I just walked about for 5 hours calling myself various derogatory names under my breath. I'm 22 and can't stand being such a sack of shit much longer.

I've already self-referred to the local mental health services, and if anything I've said sounds glib I assure you I'm deadly serious in all respects.

There are several Buddhist monasteries that provide retreats free of charge. Spending time with Buddhist monks can be a very powerful experience. You're expected to follow the precepts of the monastery and participate in the daily routine, but they don't care what you believe or what you've done in life. The links below are for monasteries in the Thai Forest Tradition - this is a very pragmatic and grounded form of Buddhist practice, with an absolute minimum of airy-fairy nonsense. There are loads of others in the UK, but I can personally vouch for these two.

http://www.amaravati.org/visiting/staying-overnight/
https://ratanagiri.org.uk/participate/visiting-and-staying

There are a number of "intentional communities" (communes without the mad cultish aspect) that welcome visitors. Accommodation is usually free, with a suggested donation of a few quid a day if you can afford it. I can personally recommend Talamh in Scotland, but there's a full list at Diggers and Dreamers.

http://www.talamh.org.uk/accommodation/
http://www.diggersanddreamers.org.uk/communities/existing/by-region

There's an international network called Willing Workers on Organic Farms. Organic farmers provide free board and lodging in exchange for a few hours of work every day. You don't need to know anything about farming, as long as you're willing to put in some graft.

I went to a barn party at a farm estate once. It was a big party with probably close to 2,000 people, music and loads of booze. Anyway, there was a manure pit on the estate, which had been carefully cordoned off with a construction fence and a tarp cover over the fence. But somehow, some shitfaced git managed to climb over the fence late at night, and then plunged into the manure pit. They found him at 4 am, fast asleep on the edge of the manure pit, covered in shit.

Also reminds me of that time I was at a friend's little garden party; we were sat in his parents' summerhouse, and at some point I excused myself to go around the corner to have a wee. It was pitch dark outside, and I mistook a goldfish pond for a flower bed, and was going to walk straight across it to wee against a tree. Next thing I knew, I was standing in water up to my waist. Having suffered abounding laughter from my mates, I then took off my wet jeans and decided to pedal home on my bicycle half a mile to get some dry clothes. All the while thinking that I probably looked like a nonce, wearing nothing but a T-shirt and my white undies on a bicycle late at night, and my biggest fear was that I would be stopped by police. Luckily, nothing happened.

Somali money transfer shops. You can send a grand right this second, and somehow it ends up in someone's phone in Somalia. I don't even understand how this all works, but I was reading about it and found it fascinating. They don't even carry cash around. They have money in their phones and shite.

Also other things like their use of solar panels and how it is cheaper in Somalia than it is here, is all very impressive.

A lot of traditional banking methods are haram, so the eskimo world has a completely parallel banking system. The money transfer system used by many eskimos, especially Somalis, is called Hawala. It works on pure trust. I give a broker a wad of cash and he gives me a password. I give the password to my foreign friend, who then gives that password to his local broker and is paid out an equal sum of cash. The two brokers make a note of the debt between them, which will either be cancelled out eventually through the course of trade or settled through payment in kind.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawala

TransferWise are a British FinTech startup offering what is essentially a modernised version of Hawala. They have recently been valued at over a billion quid, even though most British people have never heard of them. They're miles cheaper than using Bitcoin.

/emo/24860 Uncle dilemma
I am fully aware that what I am about to ask advice on is going to be labelled as a non-problem by many, but please remember than this is /emo/ rather than /iq/.

It all started at a family Christmas gathering. Last Chirstmas. My sisters daughter, also known as my niece, was asking me a lot of questions about her upcoming semester abroad as she was hoping to do it in a city where I spend a lot of time. I also have relevant contacts that would help her project. Anyway, I digress, we had obviously been drinking and there was a moment where her hand ended up on my thigh, quite near my glands. An awkward, intense and hot silence followed but was quickly interrupted by her father coming in looking for something.

Four months on I had almost forgotten about it until last night when I received a wechat message from her saying that she has been approved for the semester abroad plans approved. The first message was just a belated happy birthday, some stuff about her course and asking if she could stay with me as we had discussed. I replied saying that was fine. She then messaged asking if I remembered Christmas, I replied yes. She then sends me three nude pics saying she wants to have fun when she is visits.

She is 20 and a 9/10 blonde. I'm mid 40's, divorced, in great shape for my age.

She is the sort of woman I wank to with porn, but Im not sure what to do next. What is the legal situation here?

I have a USB hub that I sleep in the same room and its ultrabright boy racer blue LEDs are a nuisance. I can unplug it every night, but that's a nuisance. I've tried taping over the lights but the LEDs are so bright that they kick light out of the USB sockets etc and still manage to make the room glow blue at night.

I don't care about these LEDs and want them gone altogether. Can I open it up and pincer the LEDs, or would that damage the hub? I've had a quick look around on google but don't particularly trust the results.

Almost anything you see that's USB charged and not obviously 18650-shaped, will have pouch cells. They're available in hundreds of shapes and capacities, and generally work well, within their limits. https://www.aliexpress.com/store/group/Polymer-battery-wholesale/1681007_510525232.html

Quadcopters and other RC thingumabobs use pouch cells, because you can achieve a higher discharge rate at the same weight. Cylindrical cells are mainly used in bulk applications - electric cars and bikes, power tools, that sort of thing. A cordless drill might use eight 18650s, an electric car might use a couple of thousand. The market for cylindrical cells is gradually moving towards the 21700 size, which is slightly more energy dense.

Pouch cells can be economically produced in fairly small quantities, so you can often design the battery to fit the product rather than vice-versa. This is a big advantage for mobile devices where every millimetre matters.

/£$€¥/3840 Pensions
The OFT have come out and said that many old (i.e. set up before 2001) pension schemes have high charges and offer savers poor value for money. They've also suggested a cap for auto-enrolment schemes, but it's going to be an almost meaningless gesture as you'd be very hard pressed to find a provider offering auto-enrolment terms with annual management charges greater than 1% anyway.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-24153012

The pension scheme I'm in at work (contribution: 5% employer, 5% employee gross) has management charges of 0.6%, which I'm alright with as it's less than I'd get if I was investing in collectives through an ISA.

However, I've put the charges and contribution details into Invidion's pension calculator for an idea of what I'd get when I'm 65, 40 years from now, and if my salary increases in line with National Average Earnings and I took the 25% tax-free lump sum I'd be looking at a pension in today's terms of 27.5% of my current salary. If I wanted a pension that would be about two-thirds of what I'm earning now then I'll need to contribute, assuming the employer contribution stays at 5%, 15% gross (12% net) of my salary every year for the next four decades. This does depend on what annuity rates will be like then and I'd also be getting the State Pension, as long as they haven't upped the age you receive it to 80 by then.

If it wasn't for the tax relief and my employer matching my contributions then I doubt I'd bother and I'd look into other ways to support myself while I'm in retirement. What about you lads? What are your thoughts on pensions? In my opinion to have any form of decent retirement income you're at the mercy of your employer offering a good pension scheme.

>I was thinking of opting out of my civil service pensions.
I asked an expert about this very thing recently. Her actual words were "don't even think about it". Unless you're a fat, diseased neckbeard with no likelihood of procreating (and therefore at no risk of ever drawing upon the benefits) in which case go get some professional advice. Not least because the cash value of your pension pot is augmented by the employer contribution and if you cash it out right now you'll have to pay tax on the whole lot as if it was this year's income (why hello there, higher rate!). You're in the civil service, so your pay is already shite. If you somehow make it to pension age after a life working in the civil service, the pension you already have will be pretty much the only thing that's worth keeping it up for.

You can retire, but you can't take your civil service pension too early, and if you do you get a significant cut in benefit. For anyone who doesn't have historical rights, the "early" window is now pegged to your individual state pension age. It used to be you could get it at 55, but now it's a fixed number of years fixed to your personal state pension age - if it moves, then the earliest age at which you can take the pension moves with it.

The short version: The benefits are based on what you earn rather than what you contribute, and once you take it they're uprated every year. Instead of putting money into a pot and getting an annuity, you earn a fractional entitlement (for final salary schemes) or some fraction of your annual pensionable pay (for career average schemes), and your pension is whatever it all adds up to at the end.

Not really. There's no real benefit to be gained from holding on to gold, and it was unarguably a good choice to diversify national assets at the time. The fact that it would have been worth more at a later date says nothing much. If you're able to predict with any degree of accuracy long term changes in value of such a speculative asset you don't just have good judgement, you have precognition.

I could go on a long thing but for simplicities sake I'm just going to say PFI was shit and the "will he-won't he?" of the election in 2008 was sheer political ineptitude.

Plus, I mean, the London Underground Public-Private Partnership. Really, I'd rather not de-rail (oops?) the thread into an argument over the 1997-2010 government. I was just playing devil's advocate to stretch out the idea that it's right to say elements of both predictions came true. Every government has instances of incompetence (and thus, can be argued to be incompetent if you so wish.) so it's a pretty easy thing to do.
