Alright lads.

I was thinking of baking our lass summat for Valentine's Day. Last year I made peppermint creams, but I thought I'd take it up a notch. Any suggestions? All I can think of is those gimmicky cake lollipop thingies.

I made some chocolates fairly recently, trying to use a silicone melting pot which pissed me off to no end. The old ways are the best. Anyway that looks pretty awesome, going to give that a go myself.

OP here.

I made the chocolate jewels, except I couldn't find jewel molds in any of the shops I tried and the ones I saw online looked a rip-off, so I borrowed my mum's Christmas and Easter ones. I went a bit overboard with the number of lustre dust colours I got, but only half of them brushed on properly. I then made the mistake of bunging them all in a bag, so all the colours smudged together. She loved them, mind.

Also sell some cracking chocolate that's only 30p per 100g.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/jan/22/donald-trump-kellyanne-conway-inauguration-alternative-facts

>Trump’s press secretary, Sean Spicer, used his first White House briefing to shout at journalists about what he incorrectly termed “deliberately false reporting” on Trump’s inauguration, declaring: “We’re going to hold the press accountable.”

>“This was the largest audience ever to witness an inauguration, period,” said Spicer, in one of several statements contradicted by photographs and transit data. “These attempts to lessen the enthusiasm of the inauguration are shameful and wrong.”

>Kellyanne Conway, a senior White House aide, told NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday Spicer had merely been offering “alternative facts”, a phrase that was received with widespread astonishment.


Alternative facts, eh?

In other "alternative" news, the media have been systematically failing to report terror attacks. Earlier this week, the White House released a list of attacks that the media has ignored or not given enough coverage to. Did you know that apparently a couple of radical raygunners stormed newspaper offices in Paris? Somehow this event passed under the radar two years ago. Then the media completely failed to adequeately report on a gunman who apparently took to a beach resort in Tunisia and killed 38 people. Then there was a cell in Paris that massacred concertgoers at a theatre, which the media completely ignored. I have no idea how they managed to overlook an attack at Leytonstone tube, particularly since one of the onlookers apparently shouted something like "You're no eskimo" or something like that, which you'd think would be particularly media-friendly.

Thank goodness Trump ordered his staff to tell us about these terrorists, because we'd never have heard about them otherwise.

/£$€¥/6491 Estate agents
I'm buying my first house and they have accepted an offer on the house. I was checking on the advert on right move to get some measurements and I noticed that they have updated the advert to:

PUBLIC NOTICE! William H Brown are now in receipt of an offer for the sum of £140,000 for ****************. Anyone wishing to place an offer on this property should contact ****************** before exchange of contracts.

Is this usual/legal for them to publicise the bid they've received in order to basically create an auction type situation? I've sent them a snotty e-mail asking them to not publicise the amount we have bid because that just seems pretty unfair.

Anyone have similar stories?

I am looking for a flat to rent.

I have found one I like, and the letting agent wants £125 (non-refundable) before they will even draw up a contract. So if I don't like the contract, that money is wasted. They also want lots of other fees, making a total of £525, almost one months rent - £625.

This is for a letting agent that turned up late, didn't know what council tax band the flat was in, could not find the car park to show me, and had to phone the office to find out what the fees were. I am also almost certain that they did not give 24 hours notice to the existing tenant, as they arranged the appointment on the phone almost exactly 24 hours before it took place, and when we arrived the agent didn't seem to know if the flat would be occupied or not.

I was ready to negotiate on these fees, and overlook the incompetence of the agents, until I did some googling and discovered they have been rated 1/5 stars on allagents.co.uk.

Tomorrow I am going to tell them to fuck right off.

This is exactly why the entire burden of the agency should be on the landlord. The landlord has the power to leave and use another agent. The prospective tenant just has to put up with the agent or pick another property.

When I was looking for somewhere to rent a couple of years ago, I found a cracking little place. Then I saw the name of the letting agency. I wondered why it rang a bell. It turned out it was because a couple of weeks before a consumer affairs show had run a property special, including a whole bunch of dodgy letting agents. Most of them issued statements with the flimsiest of defences but offering refunds as "gestures of goodwill". Except for the firm behind the flat I'd seen. They were the worst of the bunch, having kept the whole of the deposit in all the cases of theirs featured, and then completely ignored the programme. IIRC, the tenants got CCJs but were unable to enforce them.

/fat/3936 Fat bastard weight loss thread
Get in here fatlads.

I've made an effort to properly lose weight but have stalled in the last 2 months - and it's starting to creep up. I used to lift weights 3x/week and control the diet, but I can't lift for a while until some medical stuff gets sorted. This has taken a bit of a hit on my progress - or more likely,ive used it an excuse to slack.

What's your story?

P.s. I track calories and weight using my fitness pal.

I don't drink beer at all, I can't stand the taste. I prefer a decent cider (as in a proper one).

If you have never drunk before and want to try it, I'd recommend some wine that isn't all that cheap to start with, since it's actually a nice experience and you can't taste any alcohol. My personal recommendation would be Viña Tondonia Reserva (It's a Rioja, red). It's ~£20 a bottle but worth it I'd say.

The other option, of course, is to get that cheap 'fruit cider' shite, which has never seen cider in its life, but it's like really sweet fizzy pop.

Without going too much in the other thread I'll need to know a few things about starting a proper job. Long story short my work history consists of long term volunteering for charity, a casual job with uni and some odd jobs.

I got lucky and have received a job offer and this being my first proper job in an office I'm a little lost on the process. My new employers are well aware this would be my first office environment job.

I've been on DLA (now PIP) since I was 18 due to severe anxiety, epilepsy, minor manic depression and the old favourite regular depression. My years in uni have helped significantly during and I have informed the job centre about the changes. Now I want off the system completely because I feel like a right sponge. By that I mean no work grants or permitted work. Full on off the system. When do I go about telling the job centre that I now have a job? As soon as I accept the offer or shortly before I start work? As much I don't want to be a sponge, I do need the money in between the transition into work but would otherwise not want to get done for bennie fraud.

The other thing is my P45. The casual job I had was over a year ago and I get my P45 now and again which goes straight into the paperwork pile which will be a ballache to dig into. I don't recall the last time I received my P45. May have been last April going by the tax year. Is it ok to give my new employers a relatively old (but current) P45 or should I have to fill in a P46. Or is this something I should ask the job centre about while I'm closing my DLA claim?

If you overclaim then the arrears demands will follow. Seen it happen many times in council tax recovery; someone gets a job and then not only do they have to start paying things like council tax and rent, they start getting chased for the overpayment for the period between starting work and informing the council. Not everyone can cope with effectively having the rug pulled out from under them and end up with a court order for the debt.

Notify the JobCentre in advance of the date when you are due to start work. Your IB or ESA will be paid up to this date. You're still entitled to PIP even if you're in full-time employment, but starting work may trigger a re-assessment of your claim.

You should be entitled to Extended Payment of Housing Benefit to cover the gap between starting work and your first pay packet. Ask the JobCentre about this when you tell them of your change in circumstances.

If you need to buy clothes or cover transport costs for your new job, you can apply for an interest-free budgeting loan. You can borrow up to £348 and repay it at an affordable rate. Your local council may also provide loans or grants for people starting work.

https://www.gov.uk/budgeting-help-benefits/how-it-works

I know you want to get off benefits completely, but if you need any support related to your mental health problems, you should think about applying for an Access to Work grant.

https://www.gov.uk/access-to-work

You don't need a P45. The PAYE Starter Checklist has replaced the old P46. It's perfectly straightforward to fill out; you can download and print a copy at the link below.

Was meant to reply but it's been something of a shitstorm this week.

Called up to cancel my PIP as I was in the position of transitioning to it. Told me to call up DLA too. Called them. They told me to close my claim I can't do it over the phone and have to look on the website and write to them. This is a fucking ball ache. I've decided that I'm just going to fill out a P46 (my employers specifically ask for a P45 or P46 rather than the PAYE starter checklist which >>11042 mentioned)

>>11041
PIP doesn't give you a P45 it seems. I asked specifically and they said they couldn't.

That sums up every sit"com" on Radio 4. Pathetically unfunny, and any edges it may have smoothed down until they envy a baby's bottom so as not to offend any of the middle class cunts that might write a strongly worded letter to the editor. I don't really get it though, things like Sorry I Haven't A Clue and Just A Minute manage to keep it relatively fresh and funny -- maybe they are produced by different departments.

I would rather listen to 5 hours of nails upon a chalkboard mixed with Hitler's speeches than another minute of Count Arthur Strong. Thank fuck I moved out and never get lifts with my parents even when I visit home.

Sort of. I've steeped juniper, cardamom, and cinnamon into vodka and soda and set it with agar agar for what I masterfully called gin jelly. It tasted like christmas.

Lads, do I need to declare getting a new Windscreen through my insurance as a claim when getting new quotes?

If in doubt, declare it. Most insurers don't rate them, and most of those that do don't count it as a "proper" claim, so it might only add a few quid to your premium. Worst case if you declare it is you pay a bit more. Worst case if you don't declare it is your policy voided for material non-disclosure, with all the consequences that entails (declaring that fact for life, potential vehicle seizure, etc.).

Note that it's probably the dirt-cheapest that will tend to care more about it, but then again they tend to be the ones with the most awful claims handling so if you've got any sense you'll probably be avoiding them anyway.

The woman I thought I was going to marry and have kids with has split up with me today. Hard not to feel this has put a bit of a downer on my weekend.

We were secondary school sweet hearts and before the start of uni and during the final months of sixth form she broke up with me.

When she text me asking to meet up twice during my first year of university I ignored her, the third time I responded and we met up for her to tell me how much she missed me I foolishly got back together with her and thought this was it, particularly as she was infatuated with me since we got back together.

three/four years later, it's round two, and she's done it again.

Nobody really cares of course, but I feel better getting it off my chest as the shock sets in.

Please find a healthily outlet than that. I did the same thing myself and I just spiralled into drinking and distracting myself from everything. I think a bit is fine but there's a cut off, otherwise it'll end up as your coping mechanism for any hardship and depression will creep up on you over the years anyway, believe me.

I'm not planning on keeping up drinking like this. It's just a bit raw at the moment still. Am planning on getting back into a meditational practice but also sitting alone with nothing but my own thoughts really isn't all that appealing right now.

The follies of youth.

Learn to take things with a pinch of salt lad. It may have been the "biggest mistake of her life" breaking up with you, but that's not saying a lot when her second biggest was something like not going on the Year 12 French residential trip.

At that sort of age, those statements and sentiments have very little meaning. It should be a warning sign if a lass makes them to you in the first place, because it means she's still got quite a bit of growing up to do.

Tried to speak to my manager about anxiety at work. He told me I had nothing to worry about.

How do you speak to people about anxiety without them dismissing it? I think I might have high functioning autism as well, and my (bartending) career is going nowhere because I'm scared of talking to people. After 4 years I'm good at making drinks and casual conversation but I don't click with superiors and the golem effect seems strong with me, and it just snowballs. I can talk to you for hours about every aspect of a drink, but only if I feel in control, which is becoming increasingly rare. I asked my GP about autism assessment and he later sent me a letter with contact info for dyslexia services. Should I persist with him? Should I seek psychological help? I had CBT but only for 6 sessions a couple of years ago when I was depressed, but I'm just really not sure what route to take because I feel like without understanding how I'm actually functioning I'm just grasping at straws and placing for failure.

Anyone have any anecdotes about being successful despite anxiety/autism/adhd/poor life decisons? I have a 2:2 in classics, pic related.

I'm in a similar boat, but (un)fortunately (depending on how you look at it) I had a full on anxiety attack at work. I got referred to their own counsellor who put me in for a 'Burgers assessment as well as possibly getting some mild SSRIs for the anxiety.

My bosses are sympathetic, and on seeing my GP I didn't beat around the bush and told them exactly what happened. They referred me to the mental health services at the hospital, so I'd go back to your GP and ask him/her what the fuck s/he's playing at sending you a dyslexia letter when you didn't ask for that.

If your bosses brush it off, your GP can give you some time off work (two weeks, I believe) for mental health reasons, which I'm sure will make them listen.

You might want to get in touch with the National Autistic Society. They can give you advice on getting a diagnosis and access to services.

The enemies of the people Supreme Court have spoken. Article 50 requires an Act of Parliament, but Sewel is not enforceable so the devolved bodies can't veto it.

For some value of "debate". The government will no doubt try to get that strictly limited. The sitting is apparently slated to go past midnight, but with upwards of 50 amendments threatened by the SNP alone, the full day sitting, starting after prayers at 11am, works out to a little over 15 minutes each, which is just about long enough for a division.

I currently live in Wales doing an undergraduate degree. I graduate this year and I want to move to Brighton.

I don't really know how to do this.

I won't be getting a decent graduate job or anything like that, so I'll have to get a shitty bar job or retail or something to start off with. I've been told to get a live-in carer job, but I don't drive and it seems you need to to get a job like that.

Also I'll be moving alone and everything seems so expensive. I've been told about the cheaper areas in and around Brighton, but I still don't know how I'm going to find a place to afford with a job nearby.

How do I do this?

tl;dr:
graduating soon, want to move to Brighton, alone/poor/unskilled, can I/how do I find a place and a job?

Well I'm in a London tech job and sorry to say that isn't my experience, unless non-London tech jobs pay less than minimum wage. Not that it's bad mind, and most companies do pay a premium for London-based employees.

There are jobs that pay that much more, but they're mostly shit. They pay silly money because they have to. Chances are if someone in London is advertising a dev job at £100k, either they need a highly specialised skill (as in there are about five people still alive that can do it) or they have to pay people that much to work for them. Guess which is more likely.

Gay in Brighton here.

Honestly it's a very hard city to move to. Just about manageable 7 years ago, but now...if It were me I'd be looking at somewhere like Manchester or Birmingham instead. I could go on and on about how everything decent about Brighton died years ago, but I'll stop.

Your best bet for employment is call centers (through various shady employment agencies) and your best bet for housing is a house-share through friends. There is a gay housing Facebook group "Brighton Homes for Queers", but good luck with that group if you eat meat or don't practice yoga.

Former Brighton lad here. Firstly the place sucks nowadays. Secondly, there is fuck all good work.

You want a place in Hanover. You want a job with Amex - especially if you can get in their travel section, that pays actual money, and while shift work, is fun. You might want to ensure you can speak a foreign language.

Aside from that, The Park Crescent used to be a cracking pub, although working out how to find it is always fun.

Avoid Whitehawk and Moulsecoombe like the fucking plague. Hanover can still offer small but not unreasonably (for Brighton) priced accommodation.

It really is a "graduate call center graveyard". Carer work does not need driving, public transport is good.

You will find yourself living in penury and surrounded by drugs and hipsters. Bristol might be a better move, TBH.

Or Berlin.

/b/408274 Not technically a /pol/ thread Locked
I'm just wondering if any of you lot know anything about the "organisation" of the blac block or antifa organisations that seem to be the media's... opposite of a scapegoat. Largely ignored, in order to place the blame for violence on the legitimate protesters, if there's a word for that.

Quoting a friend who's studying at Berkeley and was out being a voyeur as you do:
>berkeley's fine, all the vandalism was done by antifa shitheads. they live in """artist""" """collectives""" in oakland and come up here to stir trouble whenever protests happen
>there weren't any students who made their own riot shields or shot fireworks or some shit, college students were just used as meatshields by these people
>the original protest idea was pretty good in my opinion, not that i was planning on joining -- a dance party outside the building that would play loud music to drown him [Milo] out
>and then older looking people showed up en masse wearing masks and leather jackets and tacticool gear

The same thing happened with the women's protest and the other anti-Trump things, there have been similar people at many protests the past few decades as you've undoubtedly noticed. In this and many other countries.
I'm just wondering where they're coming from. Who's recruiting them? Where's their propaganda? Where do they hang out, how do they know where and when to be? Who are these people?
They're not on any part of the Internet that I know of.
