I'm not sure if this even exists, but can someone recommend me some sort of free organiser/calendar application. That has an absurd level of customisation of repeating cycles and an ability to integrate in scripts and other applications to run automatically, potentially other 'smart objects'.

I've decided that I want to attempt to structure my life to an absurd level, where the computer will play music playlists where they left off at fixed times, turn on lights, message my phone to tell me it is time to brush my teeth, tell me every 3 days to practice coding for an hour, every 10 days tell me to cut my nails. Tell me when to order my shopping, when I need to preheat the oven based on the exact mean I’m having that night to always eat at 8 o’clock. Budget time for my exercise routine that scales up depending on how far along the routine I am and previous data I’ve fed it. And that if I need to amend the process there are various options as to how to handle that.

Does this exist, does anything even come close?

There are some Android apps which family your daily routine. Try 'life rpg' or similar.

This will allow you to micromanage your day, but you may need a separate app to trigger events based on alarms. I used to use one called alarm clock plus which had me perdoing sums to turn the alarm off and could probably be used for events.

Theresa May is due to make a statement in Downing Street at 11.15am amid speculation the Prime Minister could call an early general election.

Mrs May is scheduled to make her statement immediately following a meeting of her Cabinet. The BBC's political editor Laura Kuenssberg confirmed the news and said such a statement is "only normally used for most serious moments".

Downing Street is yet to comment on what Mrs May will say. Statements outside Number 10 are highly rare and usually reserved for only the most significant announcements.

The last time Mrs May spoke to the nation in front of the famous black door was after she succeeded David Cameron as PM. Meanwhile, Mr Cameron used the setting to announce his resignation in the immediate aftermath of the EU referendum result.

It's either a general election or we're going to war with the North Koreans. Place your bets now.

> I also remember the IMF crisis of '76.
So you'll remember that actually, we never needed to take out a loan at all - right?
>The reality is more complicated. The situation at the end of 1976 was not uniquely dire. The government had already made two applications to the IMF at the end of 1975, with far less publicity, and the balance of payments had been in much greater arrears then. Healey later claimed that the Treasury had grossly overestimated the public sector borrowing requirement, the key figure used during the IMF crisis, and that if he had been given accurate figures, he would not have had to ask for the loan.

Also more interestingly our balance of payments has been even worse (I think we've had a surplus once in the early 2000s or late 90s.) since then. Funny to think it used to be a major political concern, to the point of it sometimes being the explanation for Wilson losing '70.

Yes, I am enough of a wanker to take a detour from smirking at pre-election predictions of wipeout to dig up trivia. So fight me.

Doesn't look like it. Seems like the bumper has taken the brunt of it (as it's supposed to) and there's just a bit of a dent, unless there's been some structural damage underneath that we can't see, which the assessors will figure out. Assuming it is just what we see, that would only be a write-off if the van has depreciated to the point where it was practically worthless before the event.

A new bumper end cap costs £7. I can't really tell from the photos whether the wheel arch trim needs replacing. If it's still in one piece it should go back on with some new retaining clips, which are about £2 for 10. If it's broken, you can get a replacement from a breaker for £35, possibly less locally. The bodywork damage isn't worth fixing, as it'll all be covered by trim.

Looking at the state of the other vehicle, I'm genuinely impressed at how well the Transit Connect has held up.

Brave sex abuse victim waives anonymity to reveal how BBC pervs Julie and Tony Wadsworth groomed him as a schoolboy and lured him into woods for sex

Recalling the first time he saw her, he said: “One Saturday morning while we were out playing on our bikes me and my mates were ­confronted with a woman old enough to be our mother running through the woods with no knickers on asking us if we wanted to play and have sex with her.

“People must think it’s every schoolboy’s dream but it wasn’t right. We were gobsmacked, and to make it even more weird her husband was egging her on. We tried to treat it all as banter and a big joke. But looking back they knew we were schoolboys and what they did was wrong.”

He and a friend had spotted the couple in a park in September 1992. Darren said: “A lad on his bike rode past and said we should have a look at the ‘streaker with her tits out’ in the next clearing.

“We thought it was a joke but there she was with a scruffy-looking bloke. We were staring at her but trying to seem not to look. I’d seen some dirty books and she looked like something out of one of them.

They asked us if there was anywhere we could ‘have a play’ and we walked about a mile with them to the Outwoods near the golf course.

“Me and my mate were trembling with excitement and didn’t know what to expect. Then she told us we could do it one at a time. My mate went behind the bush with her first but was back within minutes saying he was scared because the husband had a camera and he thought he was taking photos. Then I heard her shout it was my turn. I was nervous but she called me over next and she was sitting down naked with the mac open.”

Before the sex session started Darren said Mrs Wadsworth — who never gave her name — insisted her husband go for a walk because his camera was “making the boys jittery”.

Why are western weddings so shite?
>> No. 411321 Anonymous
15th June 2017
Thursday 10:30 pm
411321 spacer


I will take a guess and say because they are centered around women. Women are the ones who plan, arrange and carry out Western wedding ceremonies. In eskimo cultures, from what I witnessed, a wedding is more about parents giving their daughter away to their future husband. That in itself is not without problems if we judge it by our modern Western standards, because it isn't about women choosing their future husband, but about parents, as I said, giving away their daughter. Anyway, the parents of the bridal couple are generally in charge of the festivities and all the planning. And they seem to get on with it very pragmatically. Or maybe their cultures and traditions just leave very little room for variation, that's also a possibility.

But put white middle class Western brides in charge of a wedding, as they are when "Western" people marry, and what you end up with is a whole weekend's worth of drama, daftness, silly wedding reception games, atrocious speeches, and guests quietly contemplating shooting themselves in the head. And that isn't counting the months of drama beforehand which everybody around the bride will have to endure. Who sits next to who becomes an unsolvable puzzle, colour combinations of table cloths and carnations suggested by the groom nearly end in the couple's separation, and disagreements about the font on the wedding invitations will continue far into the wedding night itself. I actually witnessed all of this myself with various friends and their weddings.

It's in our culture. 50 years of women's emancipation, and women still grow up with the vision in their head of what their wedding day will be like. By the time the day comes, they will have had anywhere from 20 to 30 years to contemplate it. While guys really only start thinking about their wedding day when they have met somebody who is hell bent on tying the knot, when you think about it.

So women will have had all this time, all these decades to prepare for that one big day of their lives. And yet, it turns out completely shit.

I agree with you on some parts but your whole analysis comes from a hateful place. There's a bit of trout farming in all of that.

I think the main issue is the lack of input from family, friends, and most importantly, the groom himself. Western weddings are selfish. I have been to an Arab wedding and a Somali one too. The whole festivities felt like it was celebrating something greater than just a single woman marrying a single man. Even I felt like it was special and I'm not part of their community.

So, in short, western weddings are shite because it is design to be very selfish and it is devoid of anything meaningful. That's why you see all the silly mess. It is meant to fill a cultural void.

I also blame alcohol. We just can't seem to be ourselves, a normal human being, without being smashed.

British porn innit. We're never going to compete with the glamorous fantasy of two perfectly toned Americans shagging each other senseless by the swimming pool of a Beverly Hills mansion. We go in exactly the opposite direction - normal people having normal sex in normal places. We're the nation that invented Reader's Wives and dogging, after all. Even when we do some absurd parody, it's made to seem attainable. Our porn is like a Ken Loach film with cumshots.

The kind of slags who'd suck you off behind the bins at Wetherspoons. Women who look like your aunty Pauline going on a shagging spree after a messy divorce. Blokes that really are plumbers and cabbies. UKIP candidates for county council. Travelodges. Terraced houses with brown corduroy sofas. A Vauxhall Astra with beaded seat covers parked in a lay-by. A pale thigh with a Tweety Pie tattoo. Bad puns.

Our most iconic porn star has his own line of car floor mats. He was the drummer for a one-hit wonder in the 80s. He did a nine month stretch for obscenity in the 90s. His son was the annoying lad in Outnumbered.

If it doesn't all make you proud to be British, I despair.

There's this thin sheet of wood or cardboard on the back of cabinets or drawers usually. The bit that separates from the back of your closet when you stuff too much stuff into it. The bit you might have to hammer to make it stick to the furniture again.

What is it called? The one on the back of my drawer got wet and I rip it off and chucked it out, but obviously I would need a replacement. I have been googling different combination of words and I have not been lucky. What is that piece called so that I can buy it off eBay and do it myself. Please lads.

The MDF backboard is to stop the actual solid wood panels cracking under natural expansion and contraction in the case of changing temperatures in the room in which it's placed. It's not a penny-pinching tactic — it's an evolution of the design.

Telling the difference between a plasterboard and brick wall is perfectly straightforward - you just knock on the wall to see if it's hollow.

The stud finder detects differences in density. If you wave it along a plasterboard wall, it'll beep when there's a wooden beam behind the plasterboard. You want to screw into the wooden beam rather than the plasterboard, because the wood is far stronger. Most stud finders will also detect cables and pipes, which you obviously don't want to drill into.

The Liberal Democrats have started a consultation process on what the parties next manifesto should look like. Its open to non-members and I thought everyone could benefit from you lads giving views.

It asks an interesting question: What would you spend £2 billion on?

I thought about putting the money towards adult education programs. Things like the Open University are fundamentally good ideas that gives people who otherwise can't study because of career and family commitments the chance to learn new skills and achieve lifelong learning. It sounds non-controversial but I'm sure there is ample chance to start a cunt-off on that idea.

Another interesting question is that it asks whether the Lib Dems should focus on staying in the European Union or on what Brexit should now be. An interesting option given the party is fervently pro-EU and I wonder what will fill the vacuum if its abandoned.

/emo/24897 About to get evicted from my flat, any way to hold on longer?
Had a load of job shit, fell 2 months behind on rent, looking for places at the moment but won't get any confirmation for a week.

I've lived here 18 months. The contract lasted 12 months, my landlady 'really liked me' because I'm quiet and clean and polite, so when it ran out she let me stay without signing anything else. Despite 'all inclusive rent' I agreed to a £50pcm hike to help out with bills, helped her paint the flat, sort out a new tenant. Basically, I haven't been acting like a shit until just recently. After being asked to buy a contract and a key for the new tenant, it became clear that my landlady was incredibly unreliable. When I originally lost my job I just stopped paying rent and waited for her to notice. It was 2 months before she contacted me, she wants either £500 or £1000, I'm not quite sure, because I don't think I have to pay it (it can come out of my deposit and the ~£750 I happily paid her in extra for bills over the months), and really I have no intention of paying it unless legally bound.

Since I'm not contractually bound by anything, that's all run out and I have the only copy of the original contract, and my 'landlady' is renting this property from assisted living, so what's the deal here? Can she just kick me out as soon as she gets back in the country? Any kind of squatters rights I can invoke to get a few weeks of space? Not sure how long it'll take me to find a house, but I intend to be gone within the fortnight, and would be using the money that I've managed to gather since getting a new job to pay the deposit on that rather than pay one/two months rent.

Cheers, good to know. There isn't actually a copy of the original contract around, I think my landlady lost it, so would that affect anything?

It's illegal for her to change the locks. That doesn't mean she won't do it and if she does there is in practice very little you can do. Act with haste.

Lolicon-fan here. I can confirm that I like this image for the precise reason why it disgusts you. None of the others do it for me like this one.

/£$€¥/7024 Should people with less than perfect language skills be trusted?
I can't quite come up with a satisfying answer to this. On the one hand, you'd expect someone you're potentially employing to carry out skilled work to at least be able to throw together a grammatically correct and properly spelled sentence in an email. On the other hand, a lot of skilled tradesmen and craftsmen, especially in niche fields, seem to be terrible at email but personable in real life, and their trade skills can make up for their poor communication skills. On yet another hand, can you really trust someone to carry out a job requiring attention to detail if they don't have the attention to detail to ensure their grammar and spelling are correct in their emails and letters to you?

I think it ultimately comes down to the signalling value of language. Nobody expects a tradesman to have particularly good writing skills, because it's almost entirely unrelated to their actual work. I'd look for other signs, like their van. If it's a rustbucket, they probably don't give a shit. If it's too flash, there's a good chance they'll rip you off. If it's a rental with magnetic decals over the Hertz logo, you might get burgled.

For office workers, obviously written English is very important. You'd expect decent grammar and an appropriate tone at the least. For professionals, it gets more nuanced. I'd trust a solicitor who writes to me in plain English much more than one who writes in legalese; either they don't know how to communicate in plain English, or they're trying to make themselves look important. Senior executives tend to write in short sentences or even sentence fragments as a sign of how busy they are and how important their time is.

/£$€¥/7013 Lifetime ISA
These a good idea, boys?

The basics:
>18-39 to open one
>pay in anything upto £4k per tax year
>25% hmrc top up on payments in that year each april
>can pay in every year up to 50 years old
>can only withdraw the money with no penalty for a first time property buy or upon turning 60 years old
>25% penalty for withdrawing at any other time for any other purpose, effectively a 6.25% penalty on what you initially paid in
>counts towards your overall £20k a year isa allowance

I've been toying with the idea of starting to save seriously for buying a house but I've been unconvinced that it's the best investment for me. However, this makes it seem like it may be the best option now. I've got £4k to stick in one right now then I should be able to put £1-2k a year for the next few years too which should get me a decent deposit. I'm highly unlikely to need to take the money out for any reason so the penalties don't concern me, and even if I do the penalty is manageable.

Is there any reason to be concerned about the lack of providers? I've been looking at the Skipton product, I can't conceive of any reason to not go for it. I think they offer a 0.5% interest rate if I remember rightly, which is mostly irrelevant because the only reason anyone is doing it is for the government bonus. From what I understand, if I invest with Skipton, then more providers offer the Lifetime ISA in future, then I can freely transfer my balance with no penalty to another Lifetime ISA.

If the take up rate is low then they're more likely to be pulled, be that by the FCA, the government or providers themselves.

I imagine they'd either let existing investors continue or stop them from contributing in future years but with everything built up so far preserved.

/emo/25001 Being a dickhead
So earlier this afternoon I intimidated some women at a train station.

Now, that sounds bad, reprehensible even, but fifteen minutes earlier they had loudly mocked a disabled person getting onto the train, and a mixture of wanting to control resent overreactions I've had to certain events and not wanting to cause embarrassment to the disabled individual made me not say anything. However, as they sat there, giggling and laughing and talking about utterly vapid bullshit my shame and rage built and built and by the time we got off at the station I was fuming, disgusted as much with myself as with them by this point. As we went through the ticket gates I slunk behind the crowd and waited for them, so what I did next was with full intent, I confess.

Beyond the gates I almost drifted in amongst them as one exclaimed "I don't even know what to do now we're here", and I let out a fairly incoherent stream of frustrated curses. From what I recall (these things always happen "so fast", don't they?) I told them "you horrible obnoxious cunts, why don't you save this town the bother and fuck off home, you cruel bitches". I'm fairly certain I threw a twat into the mix, but heaven knows where.

They looked, understandably alarmed, and they fell quiet, and as I went away to collect myself I realised I hadn't mentioned the train incident at all and they, in their uncaring way, had possibly already forgotten it. On some level, however, I was perfectly glad to leave them confused and anxious about the whole situation, not giving them a chance to defend their utterly indefensible actions.

I feel unpleasant about the whole thing, but also that I was right, which is difficult to reconcile, and probably why I'm writing this. Am I mental bastard, looking for an excuse to berate strangers, or a sweary DI Frost, doing the filthy, honest, work no one else cares to?

I predict that our generation is the last in history that will bemoan the youth of today. When all your youthful indiscretions are archived online for all eternity, the rose-tinted glasses of nostalgia fall off. You can see exactly how much of a tit you were as a teenager in glorious HD.

Not really, he's complaining about young people being a bit loud. The thirty-something year old women I'm talking about were aggressively chastising a stranger ased on how they looked, and I'm 22 myself, not middle aged as people have assumed.

I tend to think negative of people regardless of their age. Their hypocrisy and smug self-absorbed holier than thou emotional thinking seeps through in a way that I find immediately transparent.

I don't hate all people, but I don’t think this kind of mean girls’ bullshit goes away with age. It is just you aren't exposed to it, because adults tend not to hold court with a hoard of their bitchy friends on public transport during rush hour, and as you grow older you self sellect to avoid the sections of society you despise.

You weren't a dick head for getting angry at them for mocking a disabled person, but as you note, you forgot to mention it. So now they'll have filed the incident away as a funny story about that time a bloke on the train just abused us for no reason. Hey ho.

I have an old PC that's doing nothing but taking up space.

I want to grow plants in it.

I'm thinking if I strip off the casing so it's just the internal skeleton, boards, wires and so on I can stick it in my garden and put a creeper in it or something.
Can anyone suggest a plant that would work well for this?
Is there anything in the machine that's going to seep out in the rain and poison the garden?

Fuck me manual labour sucks. You'd have think they'd have invented something for that by now.

I ended up not doing this because there were so many loose screws, sticks of RAM and cables from the two computers that I figured they'd do in place of stones. Here's a climbing plant growing out of a busted speaker.

I have sown a load of wildflowers in the bare earth/compost so it won't stay bare, I'll just need to weed it once I figure out which growths are the flowers and which aren't.

The piece of metal pipe marking off the bed is some random crap I found behind the greenhouse. Possibly an old trampoline, I have no real idea.

And here's the lavender plus a pot of those white flowers whatever they are. This bed is so big because I also have a maple tree I wanted to plant but when I started digging down I hit a pipe.

A Maple Tree? That's quite a step up.

You might like to consider some seeds too, see what grows in among it all.

I don't really want the Maple tree but it was here, in a pot, with all the random pieces of metal. Seems a shame to chuck it but I don't know what else to do with it.
Like I said, I spread some assorted wildflower seeds in the compost (cowslip, poppies, something, something, foxgloves).
