Is it strange that I cannot even imagine myself in a relationship? Not that I don't want one, or that I am asexual, it's just like that part of what to me seems is an innate part of our nature is missing. I've never had a girlfriend , or done anything close in that regard.

I mean it seems to come so naturally to others, and I'm left feeling awfully left out and lonely. It isn't like I have had ample opportunity to meet women, I'm in my fourth year at university -- I just do not know how and feel like I have missed out on a lot of life experiences that 'we' are expected to have had. There is also of course the biological drive which is present and with over a decade of me not being able to fulfill that, I am left somewhat frustrated. I know that in another life I am once of the fedora tipping 'incels' on Reddit, but I know is this is entirely the fault of my own fucked head.

I feel like university is "easy" for meeting people in this context, and I feel like if I'm completely unable to do it here, I'm never going to be able to.

I've tried talking to a counsellor about it, but he was useless and cancelled the sessions.

Where do I even begin to sort myself out?

You might try some self-help books like How to make friends and influence people or the seven pillars of wotsit.
I don't know. You just need to find a way to be happy in yourself without actively looking. It sounds counter-productive but I've always found the best things have happened when I've genuinely given up hope of finding anyone and have just been getting on with improving my own lot. A combination of seeming less desperate and the watched pot not boiling.

Millenials are taking much longer to find someone and settle down, don't compare yourself to your parent's generation or the outliers around you.

Ey up lads.

Anyone here in the building trade? Or more specifically, a trade that involves a CSCS card? I'm jobhunting and I see a lot of "must have cscs card" and I'm thinking getting one might make it easier to get work. Then I look up the card and there's a gazillion different types, and the website says you have to have qualifications before you can get one and it's all super fucking confusing. It reminds me of dependancy hell on an outdated Linux system.

Is there a "basic" card I can get which will allow me to work the sort of jobs the Guardian is constantly telling us English people don't want to do? This seems ridiculous.

A number of years ago I got myself a CSCS card and did a bit of labouring for a week before I realised I'd make more money working in McDonalds.

From my limited experience, a building site is basically something like a slave plantation. You've got your overseer Englishman at the top, your various skilled tradesman or house negroes in the middle; working class Englishmen involved in various skilled trades, and you've got your labourers or dumb plantation negros at the bottom; Poles, Lithuanians, and various other Eastern Europeans working cash in hand for a pittance.

This man is going to be the next Prime Minister of Canada and it's going to be fucking awesome.

Canada's opposition Conservative Party has just elected a new leader. He is primarily known as a backbencher, and beat out senior party figures, including former ministers, to the job. Despite being somewhat popular with the party members, he is considerably to the right of centre, and people are already suggesting that his positions are reminiscent of something out of the 1980s. So far the response from several MPs from the governing Liberal Party has been along the lines of "well this is going to make the next election much easier".

Remind you of anyone?

Well he's not ugly as a brick wall so he's in with some facet of a chance.

The problem is that Trudeau is also ULTRA open to immigration so I assume the Chinese and Indians will still vote for lolWeedman while calling this guy an ultra right wing nationalist for asking something like 'where do we get the money for these programs now our oil sales are ruined?'.

But given the world standard, Trudeau will win and whoever is opposed to him will just fade into nothing unless he manages something akin to a 49/51 parliamentary split.

/£$€¥/7009 Online or High Street Estate Agents?
I'm looking to move house soon. I've got a mortgage on a little two up two down, looking to move to a three bedroom somewhere nearby.

My question is; how should I go about selling it? The options seem to be to sell it yourself (which I'm not going to be doing), to go with an online only estate agent, or to go with a high street estate agent.

On the face of it, it seems like the best option, money-wise, to go online-only (say, with or something). You can arrange a fixed fee to be payed after the house is sold, generally it does work out cheaper. You do pay something like a grand and a half more with a high street estate agent (variable).

I can't escape the nagging suspicion, though, that you get more for your money with high street estate agents. I'd like to know that there's somewhere I could go to kick up a fuss if something goes wrong; I'd like someone to give people tours of the house when we're not in; I'd like someone who I can ring up and ask daft questions after because I don't know anything about selling a house and they know everything.

Has anyone else sold a house before? Did you do it with an online only or a high street estate agent? Have you done it the other way as well, before? Which is better? Do you wish you'd done it differently?

It seems like a small decision, but I can't really seem to pick one over the other. I need more input from real people to make a decision. Help is much appreciated.

I don't want to go to sleep because I know that when I wake up, I'll just be depressed all day tomorrow.

Going for a walk doesn't help, taking a shower doesn't help, cleaning my room doesn't help.

Don't delete it, you don't really need to do anything with the advice that you're given- you've nothing to lose.

>someone will probably tell me to go to a doctor and I acknowledge that it's probably the most reasonable choice but it makes me sick with anxiety to even think about it

I think the first thing you should do is just work out a rough plan of what exactly is wrong, what you have tried, and how you're going to continue working your way through this. I found just running to the doctor to be unhelpful, but going with a little more experience was better.

Obviously, people will push doctors on you- I would say that you should look for some form of support, ideally from a doctor but it could also be a charity. I went through my universities short term counselling, and was recommended for longer term counselling, for which I had to find myself- I found a charitable option quite literally at the YMCA, and I used that twice for a year each time. I'm assuming you're not in university; you might have to hunt for this level of support, whether you go through the GP or otherwise.

If you have a close friend or family member that is open, you can go with them- I didn't have that though.

What is your support network like?

Seconding this. I know it sounds silly but after you read this go grab a pen and paper and write out your problem in detail along with possible solutions. You don't need to show anyone this but it will engage a more detached frame of mind for approaching the problem that isn't crippled by anxiety.

If you're stuck, like the other lad said numerous organizations and people can help even if it is just someone to talk it out with. If you're not comfortable with doing that then we're happy to lend an ear and a few of us who have battled these demons before can talk over what worked for us with the understanding that your experience may be different.

As far as I can tell any mention of X-rays of the knee is just due to newspapers getting confused.
Dental X-rays were the existing method, but they're moving towards using MRI scans of the knees because it's both safer and more accurate.

I was riding my motorbike home and a pedestrian shouted "wanker" from the other side of the road.

I can't work out why they might have done this. I considered pulling over at the nearest opportunity, walking back down the road, and throttling the stupid cunt asking why.

This is bothering me more than it should.

I'm fairly certain everyone has had this happen to them at some point in their lives, but I honestly do not know why it's done.

I always liked Roger Moore best in The Persuaders.

Sad thing really that that show was axed after just one series. It had plenty of 70s swagger, and just a certain kind of cavalier playboyishness about it that would somewhat likely not get past today's TV censorship bodies. I believe one reason it was cancelled was that Roger Moore was not up for a second series because he was already being eyed as a replacement for Sean Connery for the Bond movies.

(this episode also features a youthful Joan Collins)

Nothing can so easily send me into apoplectic rage and simultaneous fits of laughter as non-nonsensical photographs in advertising and marketing. I couldn't decide where this thread belongs best as it's both irritating and entertaining at the same time.

Lidl has some brilliant examples, for instance this picture of a woman who is clearly off her tits on some research chems and is seeing hallucinations of vegetables flying around her head.

The drive outside my flat is wide enough for one car. There are a few parking bays on each side at slight angles to the drive.

Most people who park here drive all the way up to the end of the bay until one or both of their front wheels is touching the kerb. However there are some dickheads who stop a good foot or two away from the kerb, which means there's a lot less space behind them for people driving past or trying to reverse out of the other spaces.

And guess what, whenever someone parks like that, it's always a Mercedes or BMW. (It's not just one or two people, I've been here years and seen a succession of many dickheads in German cars who do this.)

One day last week my bus got stuck for around 10-15 minutes and had to give up because a BMW driver thought it was a good idea to just break down in the middle of the road and stay there. The street is just about wide enough for two vehicles, and the driver made no attempt to move the vehicle. Didn't push it, didn't ask for help to push it, didn't accept any offer of help to push it. Just fucking left it there. Two minibuses had to mount the kerb to get around it.

Last time I broke down in the middle of the road, I waited until it was safe to get out, signalled to people for help, and between three of us (a small woman sat inside to steer and brake) we got the car out of the way. That was from the middle lane of three on a busy dual carriageway during rush hour.

Absolutely nothing at all, it's just 90% of the posters here are utter fucking cunts. They wait until someone breaks some made up rule they have decided means they don't have to respond civilly, then mock you for it. The number rises to 100% when you look at the mods.

As for the question in the OP, depends how much life is left in the old dog. My local WMC is a lot quieter these days (according to my dad, who still pops in every now and then) compared with in the 90's. They only have acts on a Saturday now, and it's generally one bloke/girl singing with a backing track, and they are shit. Back in the day you would get a decent band on quite a few days of the week.

Just make sure not to talk during the bingo, they'll bury you under the bowling green.

Is there a sort of peaceful French Foreign Legion I can join where I won't be subject to brutal initiation rites at the hands of former Spetsnaz operatives? I've really fucked things in the most elementary of ways and I'd sincerely appreciate a purpose in life.

I've cocked up my most recent stumble into getting qualifications higher than mediocre at best GCSEs, and last Thursday I was very close indeed to going into some woods, taking a long a load of Paracetamol and slashing open my wrists. Instead I just walked about for 5 hours calling myself various derogatory names under my breath. I'm 22 and can't stand being such a sack of shit much longer.

I've already self-referred to the local mental health services, and if anything I've said sounds glib I assure you I'm deadly serious in all respects.

There are several Buddhist monasteries that provide retreats free of charge. Spending time with Buddhist monks can be a very powerful experience. You're expected to follow the precepts of the monastery and participate in the daily routine, but they don't care what you believe or what you've done in life. The links below are for monasteries in the Thai Forest Tradition - this is a very pragmatic and grounded form of Buddhist practice, with an absolute minimum of airy-fairy nonsense. There are loads of others in the UK, but I can personally vouch for these two.

There are a number of "intentional communities" (communes without the mad cultish aspect) that welcome visitors. Accommodation is usually free, with a suggested donation of a few quid a day if you can afford it. I can personally recommend Talamh in Scotland, but there's a full list at Diggers and Dreamers.

There's an international network called Willing Workers on Organic Farms. Organic farmers provide free board and lodging in exchange for a few hours of work every day. You don't need to know anything about farming, as long as you're willing to put in some graft.

Apart from the immediate effects, I suppose that this is also going to jumped on by May to push certain mandates in her election campaign.

The underlying principle of removing the role of the banking industry from transactions (or at least limiting its influence) seems noble but it stinks of a giant scam IMO.

>but show me an international money transfer company that will send ten grand's worth of wages to the other side of the world in that time and for that fee
Somali money transfer shops. You can send a grand right this second, and somehow it ends up in someone's phone in Somalia. I don't even understand how this all works, but I was reading about it and found it fascinating. They don't even carry cash around. They have money in their phones and shite.

Also other things like their use of solar panels and how it is cheaper in Somalia than it is here, is all very impressive.

Whatever you can buy on a time travel trade at a lower price than it is now. BTC is on a high and so the halfway serious alts are all overvalued as a consequence. Anything else is probably either useless or a scam of some sort.

A lot of traditional banking methods are haram, so the eskimo world has a completely parallel banking system. The money transfer system used by many eskimos, especially Somalis, is called Hawala. It works on pure trust. I give a broker a wad of cash and he gives me a password. I give the password to my foreign friend, who then gives that password to his local broker and is paid out an equal sum of cash. The two brokers make a note of the debt between them, which will either be cancelled out eventually through the course of trade or settled through payment in kind.

TransferWise are a British FinTech startup offering what is essentially a modernised version of Hawala. They have recently been valued at over a billion quid, even though most British people have never heard of them. They're miles cheaper than using Bitcoin.

I am fully aware that what I am about to ask advice on is going to be labelled as a non-problem by many, but please remember than this is /emo/ rather than /iq/.

It all started at a family Christmas gathering. Last Chirstmas. My sisters daughter, also known as my niece, was asking me a lot of questions about her upcoming semester abroad as she was hoping to do it in a city where I spend a lot of time. I also have relevant contacts that would help her project. Anyway, I digress, we had obviously been drinking and there was a moment where her hand ended up on my thigh, quite near my glands. An awkward, intense and hot silence followed but was quickly interrupted by her father coming in looking for something.

Four months on I had almost forgotten about it until last night when I received a wechat message from her saying that she has been approved for the semester abroad plans approved. The first message was just a belated happy birthday, some stuff about her course and asking if she could stay with me as we had discussed. I replied saying that was fine. She then messaged asking if I remembered Christmas, I replied yes. She then sends me three nude pics saying she wants to have fun when she is visits.

She is 20 and a 9/10 blonde. I'm mid 40's, divorced, in great shape for my age.

She is the sort of woman I wank to with porn, but Im not sure what to do next. What is the legal situation here?

I think as others have said, you're going to have to reluctantly refuse, especially as if you can hook this one you're capable of hooking others who aren't blood relations in order to get your end away.

I have a USB hub that I sleep in the same room and its ultrabright boy racer blue LEDs are a nuisance. I can unplug it every night, but that's a nuisance. I've tried taping over the lights but the LEDs are so bright that they kick light out of the USB sockets etc and still manage to make the room glow blue at night.

I don't care about these LEDs and want them gone altogether. Can I open it up and pincer the LEDs, or would that damage the hub? I've had a quick look around on google but don't particularly trust the results.

Almost anything you see that's USB charged and not obviously 18650-shaped, will have pouch cells. They're available in hundreds of shapes and capacities, and generally work well, within their limits.
Shipping is a bitch, though.

Quadcopters and other RC thingumabobs use pouch cells, because you can achieve a higher discharge rate at the same weight. Cylindrical cells are mainly used in bulk applications - electric cars and bikes, power tools, that sort of thing. A cordless drill might use eight 18650s, an electric car might use a couple of thousand. The market for cylindrical cells is gradually moving towards the 21700 size, which is slightly more energy dense.

Pouch cells can be economically produced in fairly small quantities, so you can often design the battery to fit the product rather than vice-versa. This is a big advantage for mobile devices where every millimetre matters.
