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.

>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.

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.

ITT: Weird dreams you've had lately.

I actually dreamed last night that I was in Australia, visiting the two blokes from the Foster's adverts in their beach hut. Sure enough, they gave me a Foster's, and I said "cheers, guys"... and then one of them said to me "oh no mayt, we don't say cheers heere. We say 'You little ripper!'"

Quite bizarre... has this dream got any deeper meaning, or have I just been watching too much telly lately?

From an algorithmic standpoint there's no such thing. The length between intersections would be a fraction of the previous length.

To respond to the previous poster no, I have no expertise whatsoever with fractals but I'm winging it and I'm pretty sure I'm correct. A line of logic that wouldn't be out of place in the current Labour party amirite? Ba-dum-tssh!

As a part of my general interest in current affairs, I dig around a lot on the subject of human rights and violence, including torture and so on.

Obviously some things are more difficult to read than others, but today I just didn't feel like I had the emotional capacity to go through a particular report.

I know it sounds fluffy as I'm not there to experience it myself, but truth be told I've been getting 'burn-out' more often lately.

Do any of you lads find you have to set some sensible limits on the media you expose yourself to? Any practical advice on how to avoid this sort of burn-out when reading about serious or distressing topics?

>And then when subsidies dry up, quite often it results in a near complete withdrawal of private capital. Just take the case of the Nokia plant in Hungary. It was heavily subsidised by the Hungarian government with tax incentives and whatnot, but as soon as those began to run out, Nokia upped sticks and left.
See, that just seems a further argument in favour of regulating capital flows.
>Most of them are now owned and operated by multinational industrial and investment conglomerates who, if at all, would not go quietly.
That's one of the problems. I mean, I tend to be hopeless about the future. We've handed too much power away to those who'd do us ill.

I believe New Zealand was the most socialist of western countries under Muldoon. The comparison of government spending and nationalisation seems an odd one though, since Sweden had functioning social democracy (where private ownership was sufficiently docile, rendering nationalisation unnecessary.) and Growth was also higher during the Breton-Woods period in nearly all countries, which leaves me with some impression that the level of regulation is something of a sidenote. (Especially when you factor that to find one who hasn't bowed to neoliberalism in one form or another, you're looking essentially at one country - North Korea.)

>And just how are you going to make labour scarcer?
Primarily with the aim of full employment being put high up on the policy proposal list. That might also include restrictions on immigration.
>Disregarding for a moment that in our globalised world
Ah, see, the primary purpose of the suggestion is to Disregard our globalised world and bring the whole thing under much stronger democratic and domestic control. Not total isolationism, just a much more managed system. Then you force domestic investment and (as a first world country, anyway) can more or less ignore foreign investment.

Fundamentally changing the nature of the global economy would be the aim. You'd almost certainly need to agree such a thing multilaterally. The fact it's impossible is accepted a-priori and used as a reason for me to become increasingly misanthropic and wish for an increasingly unstable world. I increasingly feel that there's nothing to lose.

>See, that just seems a further argument in favour of regulating capital flows.

Maybe to you. But in reality, you are simply not going to succeed at that. And just what was the Hungarian government supposed to do when Nokia withdrew after the subsidies ran out? Seize Nokia's assets? And would any foreign investor ever have invested in Hungaria again after that?

>I mean, I tend to be hopeless about the future. We've handed too much power away to those who'd do us ill.

Governments and countries around the globe are up to their necks in debt, slow growth and sluggish tax revenue. The last thing they will do at this point is renationalise industries that are worth trillions in assets alone, and buy out their private owners.

>The comparison of government spending and nationalisation seems an odd one though

Not at all. They're two sides of the same coin, and that is the degree of a government's involvement in its country's economic affairs. Whether the government then spends money through its fully owned industries or does so directly is in the end not really relevant.

Well yeah, as I say: That's accepted in advance. (Indeed if you want my entire political attitude nowadays in a sentence, it's "Things can only get worse, but let's look at how they could be better.")
>And just what was the Hungarian government supposed to do when Nokia withdrew after the subsidies ran out?
Taking over assets would be one option. Setting different terms for market access in advance would be another. Finally, the importance of foreign investment is downplayed, because domestic investors can always be nudged towards domestic investment. (Admittedly, I suspect Hungary isn't in quite so powerful a position in that regard.)
>Governments and countries around the globe are up to their necks in debt, slow growth and sluggish tax revenue
Hence the preference for fiscal repression. Debt plunged from WW2 until the early 70s because of the way we strung up the financial sector.
>and that is the degree of a government's involvement in its country's economic affairs
This seems the kind of thinking that would make the NHS fungible with single-payer healthcare + privately owned hospitals.
>Also, don't forget that globalisation, for all its negative effects on mature post-industrial societies such as ours, has brought prosperity to many people in developing countries.
I feel many of those benefits could still be delivered. Remember that the preference isn't for zero trade, but for balanced trade. Strictly speaking we could leave phone manufacturing to China, so long as we build something else here to maintain balance within a reasonable period. (i.e. say 5 years, and in that 5 years even if we've a huge trade deficit with China, maybe we've got a huge surplus with the US, so we're balanced, and maybe China's also running an equivalent with Russia)
>people will just laugh at those silly Brits thinking they have weight to throw around by wanting to make labour scarcer in their country
I did note that the whole thing has to be set up multilaterally. I mean, step 1 is the capital-control system, and if we can't all agree to that a-la Breton Woods then we're done at the first hurdle. (We can't.)

One thing I will give you is that the global financial sector has got completely out of control. It is just a bloated cancer growth of markets and economies which contributes nearly nothing to real sector growth, and whose volatility and valuation bubbles in 2007/08 plunged us into the greatest real sector crisis since the 1930s. And a sizeable chunk of industrial output and profit is now siphoned off solely as interest for the mind-bogglingly vast financial assets that circle the globe always looking for the highest return on investment.

One reason why labour market conditions are so unfavourable for those who actually do the work within a company is the insatiable demands of the global financial caste. And lax and quantitative easing-focused monetary policy of central banks around the globe has only exacerbated the deluge of money desperately looking for profit. And major corporations now have all these additional hungry mouths to feed besides having to generate profit just to stay in business and be able to pay their employees. While smaller businesses are increasingly struggling to get loans approved at all.

How do we solve the problem of financial markets drowning in this liquidity that does more harm than good? Well, one way it is going to correct itself is that come the next financial market wide crash, much of that money will simply vanish into thin air again. But then we will have to deal with the next nightmare - commercial banks going tits up, blown central bank loans in the trillions, and zero-interest rates, which will leave no wiggle room for lowering, which was usually one of the key measures undertaken by central banks following a downturn to give the real sector a shot in the arm. If you're already at 0.25 percent, going down to zero will have next to no effect at all. Especially not if you've still got the financial sector in the loop.

We're fucked. Plain and simple. If you thought 2007/08 was bad, you better head for the hills before the current financial bubble starts bursting. If the 2008/08 financial crisis was a mega tsunami, then the next crisis is going to be the Chicxulub asteroid.

I need some advice in making a transition from a call centre/office environment to something much more physically-demanding without suffering a major financial setback. I've made this decision for the benefit of my mental health and other reasons, having become totally dissatisfied with the way things are ran where I am.

I've worked in the above job for four years and I've had three different roles, it's involved sales, technical help and general service work. Prior to that I worked at a stadium for five years doing cleaning and customer service. I've been applying for full time process operative jobs for about 6 weeks now without much luck, I don't have a driver's license yet so anything that asks for that I have to cross out and move on to the next one. I'm wondering now if the fact I have been in a call centre job for four years is making this harder for me. When applying, I'm making sure my CV is marrying up to the job description as much as possible with all relevant details on one page, so I meet all the right qualities etc.

I've been considering going to places like Reed to see what they're like for CV reviews, anyone else been in this position though? How long does it normally take before you move into something else?

Does anyone here hail from Harlow? I need to speak to another human being. Not that I have anything to say, I just don't know anyone around here and am a bit lonely.

This. Also, when people work weekdays part-time, they're less likely to work Fridays. In our office, we've got two people who work 3-day weeks, both Tuesday-Thursday.

Friday evenings are a very different prospect, though. Lots of people getting away for the weekend.

Does anyone have any experience investing with Vanguard?

I have around £200 to invest each month and have read that regularly investing into stock and shares through Vanguard is a low cost option.

With a small amount should I be investing in ETFs or Index Funds?

r8 my anti-masturbation device.

It's a strip of self-adhesive bandage. It keeps a bit of pressure on your helmet and takes away the urge to fap.

The strongest thing you'll get legally without a prescription is chlorphenamine (Piriton). It's an anti-histamine, but it has strong sedative effects.

Doxylamine makes chlorphenamine look like an aspirin when it comes to sedative effects, and has even been shown in some studies to be a more effective sedative than babiturates.

You should be able to find doxylamine succinate 25mg tablets easily and legally online without prescription.

Bloody hell, you weren't joking. I took one 25mg tablet at 9pm last night, hit bed like a rock at 10 and slept right through an alarm at 7, finally waking up at 11:30. ~13 hours of sleep.

I think I might take half next time.

/b/408373 Weird Girls.
Lads, yesterday I had a strange encounter with a strange woman. The most notable thing about her is that she is bewilderingly eager to talk about shagging. Who she's shagged, who she wants to shag, how she's going to shag them and why. It's just relentless. A mate on the same course as me walked to the bus with her a while ago, and came in the following day gob smacked about how she'd been talking about threesomes with him and another lad more or less relentlessly. I just laughed it off and called him a fanny, but he was right, she's incessant.

Now, I'd been a hermit for about two and half years until recently, but her bizarre habit of blabbing endlessly about bonking reminded me of a girl I knew before who I'd have lunch with, who'd talk about sex with me and this other girl like it was, again, just the most normal thing in the world. It is, but it's definitively weird to bring it up with people you barely know while they're trying to eat a banana and a bagel, right? I know that's the most erotic lunchtime combination there is, but I certainly wasn't asking for it.

I understand that's only two women, but given how far removed from human society I've been that's roughly 87% of all the adult women I've met. What I'm wondering is, is this a "thing"? Do some women just realise they're fit and embrace it wholeheartedly? That seemed to be the case with the first girl I met, and both these women were late-teens, early-twenties. I'm not criticising, just taking note.

This is a daft rambly post, and I'm apologetic and thankful to anyone who read it.

Simple answer - always keep a windfall secret. It doesn't matter if it's a lottery win, a compensation payout, a pension lump sum or a million quid for sucking off a bloke. If word gets out that you've come into some money, a gaggle of cunts will come out of the woodwork wanting a piece.

Don't tell your friends, don't tell your kids and think hard about whether your wife needs to know. The only people who truly need to know full details of your finances are your banker, your accountant and yourself. If you spend your money like a sensible adult, no-one will even hazard a guess that you're minted.

At the same time, they're cutting 8% from the schools budget. Truly, baby boomers are the worst generation of narcissists.

>The overall budget is protected against inflation, but the NAO report says that rising numbers of pupils will mean schools will face cuts in real-terms per-pupil income.

So not a cut per se. They're keeping the budget as it is whilst costs go up due to rising pupil numbers (thanks to all the immigrants) and pension contributions (thanks to public sector workers and their gold plated pensions).

It's a fair point, but it makes no odds to the kids who'll be sitting in massive classes with out-of-date textbooks. ARE GIDEON has slipped a bribe to middle-aged and elderly voters, at the expense of people who aren't old enough to vote yet. I hope they remember, and I hope they hold a grudge.

/g/25856 Water alarm
Right, so my washing machine is spitting out water and it's done a number on the contents of the shelf under the sink. I'm going to seal its output but I bought a water alarm to be put on the floor in case I fuck it up, or something else leaks; the plumbing isn't great here. It's got two small metal sensor pads on the bottom which do a good job of making a racket when I dip it into water.

I have a question about this thing, though. The microcontroller (?) seems to be open to the air, and in my case water has been spewing out the top of a pipe, so there's a good chance it'll get inside if this happens again. Why is it open, and is there any reason why I wouldn't put a bit of tape over the hole (pointed to by the arrow)?

I can't really say without a much higher-resolution image. There's a fairly good chance that the circuit board has a conformal coating - a very thin layer of waterproof lacquer protecting the entire board. The gap in the case might be there for a reason, or the manufacturer might have just re-used a case from another product.

The case as a whole clearly isn't waterproof. Taping up the gaps might provide some protection from water, or it might trap moisture inside the device and accelerate the rate of corrosion.

Ultimately, I'd suggest getting your washing machine repaired rather than trying to mitigate the effects of the leak.

Makes sense, I'll take the risk and leave it as-is. I can't see any lacquer, the top of the chip looks matte, whereas I'd expect it to look shiny if there was a lacquer layer on top, but honestly I'm not sure I'd know it if I saw it - attached an image of the chip anyway, but it's not great quality.

>I'd suggest getting your washing machine repaired
Sounds advice, I just can't afford to get a plumber out, or a new washing machine. I don't think it's the washing machine that's at fault - I've watched it flushing at the end of a washing cycle and it's not any faster than a tap, it's just that the back pressure on the pipe makes it spit back up and out (I've run a few packs of descaler through the machine anyway and will be doing so regularly from now on, I guess). The whole place has problems with plumbing, I have to pour drain cleaner down both sinks and the bath every month or water starts backing up, and I'm not flushing coffee grinds etc down there, so I don't think I'm doing anything especially dumb to cause it. I've checked the accessible piping for blocks and there's nothing present. I do have a housemate but he's aware of the issues and has been told the do's and dont's so I doubt he's doing anything much to cause these problems.

Thanks for your advice, anyway - any further input appreciated, obviously I'm not an expert in any of this stuff.

Can you share a photo of the plumbing underneath your sink? i.e. showing the drain hose from the machine, and the u-bend and everything it's connecting to? There's probably just a blockage further down in the system but there might be an obvious issue one of us can spot.
