I've been wondering about the age demographics on .gs as we seem to be older and more cantankerous fellows than the average imageboard circle.

I can't remember if there has been a poll done before but I'm sure we have all aged since any previous one. Would you mind answering this so we can all learn something?

I imagine you live in a house where the hot water cuts out about half way into filling a bath, only half the light bulbs work. And you haven't got around to fixing the upstairs toilet yet, but don't worry it can wait another 3 years it isn't going anywhere, you can just use the downstairs.

I don't think it's so much that we're being taken advantage of, it's more that it's fucking expensive to run a business in this country. Everything from rent, to business rates, to wages, to the cost of raw ingredients makes the sort of food they sell in the US impossible here.

Running costs for a local sarnie shop are as cheap as they get, but you're still lucky to get more than 3 wafer thin rashers of bacon on your bookers wholesale bap.

>The US military has launched a cruise missile attack on a Syrian airfield in response to the Assad regime’s use of chemical weapons this week, marking the first time the US has become a direct combatant against the Syrian regime.

>Though Trump lacked congressional and international authorisation for the strike, prominent US politicians immediately gave him political cover.

>For years, defense analysts have warned the US against attacking Assad without a plan for what it seeks to achieve or what a post-Assad Syria might look like.

And the Russian's are none too happy.

>Under the memorandum, signed after Russia launched an air campaign in Syria in September 2015, Russia and the US had exchanged information about their flights to avoid incidents in the crowded skies over Syria — where Russia has several dozen warplanes and batteries of air-defense missiles.

One of my dad's cousins was a bad alcoholic. Started drinking in his youth, and in his mid 50s, he was put in a care home because he was mentally unable to function on his own anmyore. He developed Alzheimer's at a relatively early age, and died of liver cancer a few years later. Sad case, really. The alcohol just destroyed his life. He was married twice in his younger years, when his alcoholism wasn't as debilitating, but both his ex wives and their children refused to keep in regular contact with him. My dad was one of the few people who stuck by him, because they had been quite close ever since they were little.

/nom/12088 Why am I adding the ingredients I'm adding? Specifically for this dish.
I added too much salt to my lemon sauce. I know that because it tastes of salt. Went about 600ml water, 400g sugar, lots of lemon zest and peel, 100 ml corn starch and then about 80g salt. I was trying to follow an amalgamation of a google recipe and the recipe on a bottle of lemon sauce I got. It seemed on point at the time but now it tastes way salty. I've been adding more water and some lemon juice but in the back of my head I know it's going to simmer away and leave the salt. So I've left it for now, will the salt condense at the bottom, or is the corn starch a binding agent of some kind?

Also, when breading chicken, I was told flour, drizzle in beaten salted egg, and then cover in breadcrumbs. This kind of works but I'm not sure why I'm doing these things. Why do I need flour and egg to make the chicken sticky enough for breadcrumbs? Why can't I just put flour, egg, and breadcrumbs in a bowl and roll it about?

How do the takeaways do lemon chicken?

>I suspect a lot of chinese takeaways buy a wholesale lemon sauce or even a frozen lemon chicken, because it always seems the same.
Most cheap Chinese takeouts buy their lemon chicken, and the rest of their stuff, wholesale frozen in large quantities. Same deal with most of the dishes from cheap Indian takeouts (and with pretty much everything in any kebab shop) - which is why they all taste more or less the same as each other. Some may try and hide it by adding a few odds and ends of their own, or mixing up sauce bases etc, and if you're in London or on curry mile then it's a different story, but as a general rule if you're going with a cheap takeout in a town in Britain then all of their stuff will have come straight out of a tub, which came out of a freezer, which came from a giant wholesale conglomerate syndicated all across the UK. Very few will be carefully dusting lemon chicken by hand and leaving it to season in the back, because they can't afford the labour/time/wastage costs associated with that. You'll know the ones that are preparing their own stuff, because their prices will typically be twice as high.

Sadly true, though sometimes nicely familiar. For genuine Chinese food you either have to find a London joint with a no reservation policy filled to the gills with tattooed beardy types or keep a beady eye out for where the Chinese students at your nearest uni tend to frequent. They won't recognise or touch the stuff at most of our supposedly Chinese restaurants.

Also has anyone, anywhere, ever ordered one of the mysterious omelette dishes they have in what they call the English section of the menu? I've always been intrigued but never enough to spend money on it. Not to mention I'd probably get food poisoning.

My local Indian is a 10ft by 6ft extension on the side of a slightly dodgy pub, and they have a metal shed just outside they use to store their ingredients in.
I sort of find it hard to believe that they aren't just shipping everything in frozen, but it is honestly the best Indian takeaway I've ever ordered from, it's comparable to the quality of food you get if you dine-in at renowned restaurants in Birminghams balti belt. The rest of the reviews on just-eat agree with me too.
I've also seen them unloading vegetables off a van sometimes which is a good sign, even if they are sneaking in some frozen chicken when no-ones looking.

There are exceptions. There's an Indian near me who unquestionably cook their own stuff from scratch (and it's fantastic), but they're vegetarian so there's a lot of "meat problems" there that they don't have to deal with, and that's reflected in their price. You might just have got lucky and found a place with an old Indian lass with a bindi who sweats away in the kitchen every day of the week doing it all by the recipes her mother's mother passed down. Lucky you.

>keep a beady eye out for where the Chinese students at your nearest uni tend to frequent.
Yeah, or similarly ask an Indian/Pakİstani taxi driver to drive you to where he goes for dinner, as I think someone on here tipped me off to many years ago. As a rule of thumb, if the clientele of the place you're eating in match the country represented, you're probably in for a good meal.

When I was at uni I ended up moving into a street abutting the main drag. Of all the take-outs there were two that looked fucking shite. One a Mexican, one Turkish. But I noticed that they were rammed with Spanish and Turks respectively, every hour they were open.

Fuck me that food was goood and cheap.

Well aren't you lads a bunch of wisecracking chucklefucks?

You'll never guess who I saw today? The lad from the Oak Furnitureland adverts. You know, Green the mod in real life. So I goes up to "Green" and I drop a few subtle Britfa links. You know the sort of thing, ambulancelad, bike thief, crab killer. Only he isn't picking up on these hints. Not to worry I thinks, so I try some of the more old school things with all the subtlety of a brick to the face.

"That's a fine beast, have you knotted it yet?"

Nothing. Actually, worse than nothing. He starts looking at me as if I'm some sort of fruitloop or sex pest. This lad isn't Green at all, is he? This is someone's idea of an UTTERLY HILARIOUS JOKE, isn't it? Top notch bantz, lads. Top notch. You've made me look a right fool in front of a real person.

I didn't realise that men who enjoy watching dogs fuck women actually fuck the woman afterwards, whilst she'll be full of doggy cum.

A female pensioner who was filmed having sex with dogs has been spared jail by a judge. Carol Bowditch, 64, had sex with a St Bernard, a black labrador and an Alsatian claiming later she did not realise that it was illegal.

Her activities were exposed as a result of an RAF Police investigation which centred on a man identified as organising a bizarre sex party . Owners watched their dogs having sex with women, who then had sex with the men. Details of the event were later posted on an internet forum specialising in bestiality.

"Included was an eight minute and 59 seconds video of Mrs Bowditch engaging in vaginal and oral sex with a St Bernard dog named Oscar."

The one pictured is rated at 600W, which is about 1/3rd of a regular kettle, if you're worried about it overloading your wiring. It won't be at that constantly, probably just at the start of the cycle, but let's assume it's a constant 600W just for starters: at ~12p/kWh that'd work out at ~70p per ten hours (rough maths), but I'd imagine it'd be about a tenth of that if it decreases the wattage as much as I'd expect it to. In other words, fuck all.

Yeah the instruction booklet says the cost of running it starts at about 3p an hour or something.

Good timing, I just started another load today. A butcher just opened up in my local corner shop and they were happy to slice the meat for me, so I have 8 plate sized pieces of beef on the go, rather than the chips I shaved off frozen bits of whatever was cheapest at Sainsburies.

Similar marinade, more maggi wurze than soy sauce and no chillies, but I dry-fried the szechuan peppers before grinding them up, it's a lot more powdery.

Hence why the thread is about a TV lawyer, and whether people like him exist in real life.

>Intimidation and threats, I wouldn't necessarily put under "other nefarious means"

I mean, this isn't really the sort of thing Saul Goodman does a lot of personally, he's more the sort of person who would know who to call if someone needed to be threatened/intimidated. Most of the morally questionable stuff he does is more like deliberately lying, fabricating evidence, and outright conning people.

Besides, I definitely would count a lawyer breaking the law in any way, however minor, to be using nefarious means. Is there not a law equivalent of the Hippocratic Oath involved in being called to the bar?

I'm not sure if this is /job/ material or /emo/ but since It's a problem I'll put it here.

I've just started a new job, my first day wasn't bad. I could say I enjoyed it since it was different, learnt a few things. It's different from my old job and have no experience in this current environment. Today (my second day) I felt like they put the workload down on me, It wouldn't be so bad if I knew how to do the tasks they've gave me to do tomorrow and onwards. I don't mind a trial by fire if I knew what I was doing. The office manager who is training me will be on maternity leave soon and the boss thinks the best way for me to learn is intense training sessions with him whenever he's in the office (Seems like he is hardly there but will e-mail, phone etc frequently)

As I've said, I have no experience in this area so I'm just starting from scratch. I feel as though they expect me to complete whatever they give me despite knowing full well that I am inexperienced and untrained. In the interview I was labelled a "risk" because of this but the boss thought I had potential. I know it's too early to really decide but I honestly feel as if this job isn't for me.

I left my old job since it was a shithole, I had been there for 2 years and just wanted out so took the first thing that looked promising (Office job) but I feel I left one hellhole for another, that the grass wasn't greener on the other side.
The roles they have said they will eventually give me (probably in 1 week with this rushed nature) seem way to much for someone like me, both in experience needed and work amount. I haven't managed anything in my life and hadn't wanted to either. Just wanted a job which didn't erode my soul too much during the day and paid well enough to enjoy my free time.

Part of the purpose for this post is just to vent, I feel like I'm being overwhelmed and may even have a break down sooner or later (I wanted to cry on the bus home) and just say I can't do this. I feel like giving it to Friday and see if it's any better, If not explain I don't feel like it's for me and wish to quit. Honestly the thought of being unemployed makes me happy, I'd atleast have some free time (haven't had more than 2 days off since August last year)

This isn't a I don't want to work post, I understand the necessity of work. I just strongly believe this job isn't for me but it's far too early for me to justify it.

I always put on a brave face with things but there have been plenty of times I've cried myself to sleep. I fear this is no different. Mostly had to get that of my chest.

I'll keep at it for the time being, as I said, I knew it was too early to come to a proper conclusion other than it's a sudden change. I just get the impression it's still not for me though.


I knew the job would include some of the work I'm getting thrown at me, I was just expecting it a lot further down the line when I've mastered the basics.
It's a small office, around 7 people depending on if some people are in. It's a property company and whilst I won't be directly selling/leasing them off. I will be taking enquiries, sending invoices etc... The sudden work is basically being a personal assistant to the boss ontop of keeping tabs on so many properties and dealing with them. I've been told to make this, change that etc on things I haven't even been shown.
It might be because it's such a small office that I'll end up being focused on rather than some drone in a cubicle of many that I feel it's not for me.
I know it's strange to actually want to be a faceless employee but all I want to do is blend into the background and leave the work in the office when it's home time. Do my shit then go home, not be relied on.

To be fair property is one of the last fields I'd have thought about if you just want a mindless, hassle free 9-5. It's one of those areas that just attracts wannabe yuppie cunts, people who think they get up and go to work in order to make it as opposed to simply pay the bills.

You want an easy going job in administration of some sort, preferably for a local council or the NHS. The pay won't be stellar but if your dream is blending into the furniture and coasting along to retirement, I can't think of anything more suitable.

Gave it a lot of thought, talked it over with my friends and parents and they all agree I should get out of there. Gonna talk with the office manager today and hopefully leave the building 30 minutes after it.

When I applied for the job it was just a basic description of general office work, the usual bullshit and then I would eventually lead on to being an assistant to the big boss once I was fully trained. In the interview this I was told that would be way down the line. Day 2 I was being told by the big boss himself to update the websites (no one showed me how) Redo brochures and make new ones, make layout plans for the sites, answer all calls coming in, look after my own set of tenants and deal with any disputes, email them professionally.

Day 3 I'm expected to tidy up and update the filing system, keep the board next to my desk clear, when I came in it was full of letters and urgent pen marks, I didn't know what the fuck any of it meant but was told it's my responsibility to get things of it, so much for training eh...

They know I have no experience in an office environment and all this is just way over my head, It feels like I'm being drowned. If I had the training I'd be able to do the work, maybe not the work load straight away but atleast I'd know what to do.

The way things are going it's just not going to work. I'm not gonna waste my own time and might as well not waste theirs. I took a gamble and lost. I'm probably gonna go travelling or atleast go on holiday somewhere before I start looking for another job, for my own sanity I need to take a break.

I'll look into that when I get back to looking.

Cheers lads

Yea I understand that but I'll be going on it (as much as I don't want to) in a week or so anyway. I have enough savings to tide me over for quite a while and my parents don't mind slashing my rent and paying for a few things while I help with some renovation work around the house.

I don't intend to say unemployed for long, I'll pick up at 10 hour or so supermarket job to get some sort of income in and something to put on my CV whilst looking for something full time.

Been in work for the past 5 years (2 years unemployed before that) and always wanted to get made redundant so I had free time to catch up on things and even stare at the ceiling for a day or 2 doing fuck all.
The moment I'm out of work the first thing I want to do is go into another job. I'm guessing its the realisation that I won't be getting paid every month that makes me feel this way, I never spent it all and always sat on it and because of this I hated spending money so the sooner I can get more money in than money out the better for me (well it goes without saying but will help me out mentally too)

Do you have the first clue about anything you are talking about? No I haven't bothered to use Debian or Ubuntu because RPMs are used by Centos. And maybe if you're a manager who spends more time writing fspecs than actual code finding the shift key might be a challenge but for a developer it's a well-learned action.

I agree with you, I think DS2 is definitely the best of the Souls series. I enjoyed the wide variety of locations, even if the geography made very little sense compared to 1 and 3. The DLC was great too, and the enhanced version's changes to enemy placements did a good job of keeping the game feeling fresh.

Before I played it I'd heard a lot of shit talking about the scenery not making sense, but with one exception (that elevator) it seems fine to me, if a bit uninspired at times. Again, though, my spatial awareness is terrible, so maybe for people who aren't so useless it's really annoying.

SotFS is a pretty good addition, there was plenty of cynicism about it being a cheap cash-in, re-releasing a game a year after it came out, but these days you can pick it up for next to nothing and it's got a ridiculous amount of content with the DLCs included. I'm in two minds about the DLCs - they're a lot tighter in design, but they're also irritatingly hard in places. I'm also not a huge fan of the increased mob sizes for the reasons previously mentioned, but overall it's got enough improvements that I can't complain. I do love fighting the Pursuer and he pops up all over the shop in SotFS. Fuck fighting the Ancient Dragon, though; nothing makes me feel like a heroic adventurer more than battering a dragon's big toe for ten minutes until it falls over. Honestly don't know what they were thinking with that one. The last boss encounter is kind of so-so as well, especially if you're a melee build.

That all sounds a bit negative, but again, for the moment to moment feel of the game I think DS2 takes it. The combat is great.

Bloody hell, forgot why I came here. Anyone got the new DLC for DS3? I've avoided all spoilers but the only character I've got is on NG+++ so I'm getting killed in one or two hits and it's starting to grate on my nerves. Not sure if it's worth starting a new character for right now, might leave it for a year or so when I'm feeling in the mood to return.

A few years ago I developed the same thing. In bed I'm quite dominant but have always enjoyed going down on girls, to the point it turned me on more than the idea of having actual sex. To this day I'd rather go down on a girl than have her go down on me. In recent years though I've developed a big thing about eating out their arses aswell. A few girls have been so against it whereas some have loved it.

It's interesting to remember that Latin was once also the language of the common people in the Roman Empire.

Seems like even 2,000 years ago, people were struggling with their grammar:

>Some of the mistakes in Roman graffiti are comfortingly basic. One writer in Pompeii confuses his accusatives with this nominatives, writing pupa mea (‘my little girl’), when he should have said pupam meam. In Sallust’s house in Pompeii, someone really mangles his Latin, turning quae bella es (‘you who are beautiful’) into que bela is. Bottom of the class, Sallust!

I kind of really like this line:

>Quisquis amat valeat, pereat qui nescit amare, bis tanto pereat, quisquis amare vetat.

>“Let whoever loves prosper; but let the person who doesn’t know how to love die. And let him die twice who forbids love.”

About a decade ago I looked into teaching English abroad, and with JET at least there seemed to be an unusual amount of complaints when I was reading around compared to programs in other countries. At the time I put it down to a bunch of Japanophiles thinking it was going to be like living in their favourite anime, and then getting there and realising that Japan is actually just a regular country with all the usual ups and downs (and more specifically that, in fact, Japanese society is highly conservative and conformist, plus they've been stuck in an economic depression since the early 90s). Then a mate of mine did it and ended up in a rural school in the arse end of nowhere, combined with JET's incompetence and near total lack of support he just felt really isolated. Took a trip there a few years ago and I'm pretty sure I made the right call - novel to visit, not to live, for me at least. I suspect I'd be the same with most of the far east.

I've had other mates who've had a great time in China and Korea, mind, and getting a placement in Tokyo could be fun if you can deal with the accommodation. There's probably a lot of luck of the draw when it comes to TEFL, really.

China is an interesting one. I fucking love it, but I'm one of the weirdos who do. o9/10 people loathe the place. Beats me why though, it is fucking wonderful.

Thailand...oh God Thailand. Now THAT is a fun place.

I've got mates in Korea who love it. Cambodia is a shithole and should be avoided like the plague. Malaysia, HK and Singapore are all damn nice, but pricey - but the quality of life is cracking, and they are all melting pots of different cultures.

I have yet to visit the Phillipines, but from my Fili friends I get the idea there is a reason they are jot living there any more. Indonesia is somewhere I wouldn't mind trying.

And all these places are desperate for TEFL teachers. Just watch who your boss is in China, even the big chains tend to fuck you around. Ensure you have Western management.

It used to be absolutely lovely, but it has turned into a fucking warzone since DU30 got in. Still some of the best prostitutes in SEA, mind.

Regardless of where you go, you need to be good at coping with loneliness. The odds are exceedingly high that you'll be dumped in some backwater with no expat community. It takes a long time to break the barriers of language and culture and start making friends with the locals. If you're not happy with your own company, you'll go absolutely mental.
