Lads, car music system retard here again.

My shitty Megane's brakes are stuck on, I was driving to work and the MPG is like half of what it usually is and it's super heavy to drive. Got out and had a look and the rear left brake is jammed on. Drove the couple of miles home again, stupidly touched the brake disc and burnt my fingers, got under the car and the... cabley bit that attached to the brake mechanism is visibly stuck on versus the other, working one.

Could this be due to the cold? My car said it was -5C this morning here.

/emo/24605 Old People Problems
My old Nan and Granddad used to live together, and barely went anywhere or had a social life. Then two years ago he died, and now she barely goes anywhere or has a social life. This is a problem now though because she is on her own so she is lonely and depressed.

How do I get her to get outside her comfort zone and go find some social interactions? I think she is scared and set in her ways and depressed and so can't be bothered, and I understand that because I have been there before - but I can't tell her to get a job or join a sports club like I did.

Halp.

Hey,

Have you considered this from Age UK? It's basically staffed by volunteers and somebody will go and spend time with her once a week or so to give her a bit of company.

A befriending service might be a good option. It's also worth looking into day centres, luncheon clubs and similar activities. If she's still in good physical and/or mental condition, she might enjoy the U3A. They're a co-operative group run by and for older people who want to keep active.

http://www.u3a.org.uk/

If you have the time to spare, it might help to take her out on a few jaunts, just to get her into the habit of going out.

It's worth bearing in mind that post-bereavement depression is still depression - if you can convince her to see her GP, it could be a real help. Older people often have a very outdated view of mental health and don't realise that there's help available.

I want a new job but I have no idea what. All I know is I'm tired of sitting behind a desk and pretending my day isn't dull as shit, I feel like it rots my brain through under stimulation. What I really want is something where I leave work with a personal sense of accomplishment, like my effort that day had meaning, and I'm not enough of an economic materialist for just making money to be the reward. Where do I look for inspiration?

I do repetitive and fairly menial work in a hospital, but it's in a hospital, so no matter how insignificant my tasks are, it's for The Greater Good.

I came to realise after getting this job, that what I wanted out of a job was not actually satisfaction and a feeling of accomplishment- What I really wanted is for people to stop expecting me to pretend that I did have those things. All my previous jobs have had those delusional managers and brainwashed company arse-lickers who go around like the thought police interrogating people who aren't quite behind the company's values enough or committed to the mission statement or some other goddamn terrifying programmed corporate drivel. Those are the people who make your life hell. Where I work now, everybody is refreshingly up front about the fact that they are at work to pay the bills and little else, and it really takes a load off the mind. I think the problem is that deep down they too know how utterly trivial their role is, but they have staked too much of their fragile ego upon it, resulting in a hideous level of overcompensation.

You just need a job where, even if the actual task you carry out isn't important, the sum of the organisation's parts DOES matter. The trouble is that in 90% of jobs out there, the end goal behind all the bullshit is simply selling stuff. It's inherently meaningless no matter what you do in the chain.

I'm blathering again anyway so:

Health and/or Social Care for rewarding work, but be prepared for stress. Maybe try a bit of volunteering in the sector. Pick a client group which sounds interesting, mental health, older people, drugs and alcohol, homelessness etc. I'm sure most organisations would be happy to have you volunteer for even just an hour or two a week. It will give you an idea if it's route you wish to pursue. Maybe try a few different places.

Who has the worst job on .gs?

Been seeing a lot of people moaning lately and maybe someone with an actual shit job might put things into perspective?

I reckon lorry drivers have it the worst - long hours on the road, away from home for not-that-good wage, especially a lot of the polish lads that do it for minimum.


I'm not a lorry driver, I do work as a bouncer and it's pretty kushty

Yes but you are limited to jobs such as trade plating when you first pass. You need a minimum 1 years driving experience before you can get a job with a bigger company.

Trade plating can be fun and you get to drive everything up to fire engines etc.

Can't accurately put across how hard it is sitting around waiting for an agency to get back to you about when you start 36 hour rotating shifts.

I could have gone directly to a cleaning role today too albeit on less hours but now I just feel like I'm back in that mire of uncertainty I have been for the past 3 months.

Fully incensed to work but everything feels like one step forward and two steps back with interviews you think you've nailed after doing your research and showing your competencies, agencies who are keen to take you on but not really give you anything and hundreds of vacancy e-mails in places you can't get to.

/pol/69249 100% Inheritance Tax
Some time ago I came up with the idea of abolishing or massively reducing most of the taxes collected by the government with the exception of one tax, inheritance tax, which I advocated being raised to 100% with no exemptions or minimum threshold. I posted the idea online (it might have been here) and was ridiculed.

Now I am back, having investigated the matter thoroughly and done a lot of number-crunching and I am here to make the case again. Although the primary motivation for my argument is a moral one, the numbers themselves actually do make sense and we would see a net gain to the tax revenue collected each year.

The plan is simple: Close all loopholes regarding inheritance tax, then raise it to 100% but allow people who jointly own a property to have first-refusal on purchasing it back from the government in the event of the other owner's death (providing they have the money or can get a mortgage). This would apply to any and all possessions including personal chattels meaning you will have to pay the government a few grand to keep your telly, furniture and the like if your wife dies.

Why is this a good idea?

1. It completely and permanently removes every single living person from the tax system forever, freeing them up to do what they please with 100% of the money they earn. Whether you think this is a good thing because you believe people should own the fruits of their own labour or you think it's a good thing because it incentivises people to earn money there is not really anywhere you can sit on the political spectrum and disagree with this.

2. It encourages wealthy individuals from all across the world to base themselves in Britain, creating employment opportunities and of course giving our treasury a shit ton of money when they die. Everybody dies and it's not the sort of thing you can really keep quiet so there's not really any way for people to evade it. If every billionaire on Earth moves significant assets here due to the fact that they don't have to pay any tax we will be drowning in money forever.

3. Morally there is no way to justify someone owning what they did not earn. As with point 1, wherever one sits on the political spectrum they at least pretend to agree with this. Even the die-hard supercapitalists who want to create a libertarian free-market utopia claim that their ideology is based upon wanting people to make their own way in the world and not "rely on others for hand-outs".

Just imagine the paradise we would live in. No income tax, no VAT, no looking over your shoulder to see if the taxman is watching you, but all without having to make even a single cut to any public service. Absolute heaven and it's achievable right now, today, here in Britain in 2016. Why isn't anyone making this happen?

So you want to take money YOU didn't earn then decide who the beneficiaries will be? ...kind of a step up from the tenuous immorality of inheritance.

On the upside, it's the only tax you'd ever have to pay, given we could afford to abolish pretty much everything else, and you wouldn't have to worry about passing on the house because the high turnover means that property would be much more affordable.

This is the root reason first world countries need to bring back capital controls across the board.
Having a wealthy class capable of (a) strongly influencing how the world economy is run and (b) not tied to any particular country, capable of eloping with relative ease if things go all 1917 is a recipe for disaster.

I absolutely adore Monkey Dust, it's my favourite cartoon. It's a real shame they only made three series. My favourite segments were Ivan Dobski, the Paedofinder General, and the The Great Whale Hunt crew.

They only released series 1 on DVD which I own, I also own pirated copies of series 2 and 3 which I made special covers for.

/uhu/2229 New build phone line
This probably is the wrong board for this, but...

I've just completed buying a new build house and have been told that I need to get a phone line installed by BT. BT will charge me over £100 for this unless I get one of their broadband/phone packages which are awful value for money and BT are pretty shit anyway.

I contacted Sky who said they could do it for £20 if I got a package with them and they're a lot cheaper than BT. However, this being a call centre in god knows where, I'm not sure how much I trust them to understand this property has no landline and never has.

So, in short - does anyone here know much about getting phone line installed in a new build and does it have to be through BT?

Unless you're in Hull or a handful of other areas, there are only two sets of telephone wires in the ground - Openreach and Virgin Media. Every company apart from Virgin uses Openreach to connect to your house. Sky or BT or Plusnet provide the service, but Openreach provide all the wiring. If you can't get fibre via Openreach, then you'd better hope that Virgin have cabled your street.

Doesn't Plusnet like to advertise that they only have UK call centres?

What do you live for?

I'm going back to uni to study as an adult but I fear I might get hit by the same problems I had the first time I tried this; I'm bad at socialising and doing anything feels a bit empty when you don't have anyone to really share it with. I'm quiet, conversation is difficult for me, my anxiety issues keep cropping up unexpectedly and I'm conspicuously different to most people in the area I live, which won't change when I move as they're also in different bits of the UK.

Even thinking about the most basic potential goal in life - having children - gives me a feeling of otherness, like I'm missing a fundamental understanding of social interaction. I just haven't made the sort of connections with people where I could imagine something like that happening and I'm nearly 30 now.

I don't know. The only thing I've learnt in the past few years is how to work when I'm deeply unhappy, I can't see much of a reward at the end of it all though. All I really know I want for my old age is someone to be with, working on my career to get money is just a necessity to make the other bits less stressful. At least I have that motivation right now.

Well we've found your problem I think. You get quiet and shy on the stuff, and if you smoke regularly it will be affecting you sober too. Weed does not mix well with an anxious, artist personality type.

Weed is a nice drug I know, but if you're that kind of person you have to be careful with it. I had this realisation myself a couple of years back and honestly, since I stopped getting stoned every night I've been much, much more sociable.

And for heaven's sake don't call it "pot", you're not on Saved By The Bell.

I went to university at 30 after a protracted period of mental illness, alcoholism and homelessness. I was absolutely terrified for the first week or so, but things very quickly clicked into place.

I went in feeling really intimidated by these vaunted halls of learning, but quickly developed the confidence of being one of the few adults in the room. I felt out of place, but in an entirely healthy way. Half of these kids didn't know how to use a washing machine. Some of them had never bought a drink in a pub. They were all infinitely more scared than I was and they weren't good at hiding it. I figured that if these spotty gobshites could do it, it'd be an absolute piece of piss. I was right.

On the social side of things, I think you'll find it surprisingly easy, even if you're quite anxious and awkward. Everyone there feels out of their element to some extent; you have the advantage of a decade of life experience. The mature students on your course will chum up with you quite readily, because you're almost guaranteed to be less annoying than the kids with floppy hair, self-invented nicknames and tedious gap yah stories.

Turn up at the freshers fair, pick out half a dozen societies that seem vaguely interesting and you'll have a packed social schedule by the end of your first week. Pick at least one thing that's totally unfamiliar and out of character - salsa dancing or paragliding can be a remarkably effective treatment for social anxiety. You've learned to play the role of a shy person, but you can unlearn that role by doing things that are out of character.

As >>24544 says, knock the weed on the head. It's not good for your mental health in the long run. See your GP about your anxiety and sign up for counselling when you get to university. Most of all, don't get hung up on the idea of being different. Try to embrace the fact that you're a unique human being with a unique set of life experiences. You don't have to be like everyone else to be happy; judging by the state of society, the opposite might be true.

Maybe you are really just a bit underdeveloped regarding your mastery of social interaction, OP. Some people are, and although they would like for themselves to be more like everybody else, they can't see how to accomplish it.

There are (group therapy) classes for/against social anxiety. Where you basically develop skills of casually interacting with other people in everyday situations while learning to dial down your anxieties. That might be worth looking into. Some of those classes even teach you how to pull birds successfully approach members of the opposite sex.

I was going to start my post with a suspicion that you may be on the autism spectrum and might have Asperger's in particular, but I didn't want to piss you off scare you off right out the gate. That's another thing you could consider. Because there are also many ways to overcome a lot of the limitations that Asperger's poses on your ability for social interaction.
