How is it supposed to work for sites like this or others with adult and non-adult sections?

I wouldn't bank on it. ATVOD (now part of OFCOM) have taken enforcement action against lots of niche porn sites. Almost the entire industry is now incorporated and hosted overseas, because the regulations are onerous.

The UK government has confirmed that a controversial compulsory age verification check for online porn visitors will no longer be introduced in April as planned.

In a statement, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport said it would now start "later in the year".

"We need to take the time to make sure we get it right," added a spokesman.


Looks like I was right.

Recently I've been feeling a total lack of interest immediately after orgasm. Sometimes it's complimented by a creeping sense of acute awareness of the general futility of existence.

Anyone else have this? What is the biological reason for this?

/uhu/2384 Kitchen Bollocks
I was gifted for Christmas, separately, both a power drill and a magnetic knife rack. Please no comments about my parents' combined attitudes to radicalising their daughter.

My idea was to attempt to mount the rack on the side of my kitchen cupboard, as the kitchen is tiny and I have a mortal fear of drilling my walls. It comes with some assembly bits like rawl plugs and two types of screws.

Will this work? What kind of screws do I need? Should I try to drill into the sides of the cupboards (quite thin, IKEA units) at an angle to sit the screws in? Will they need a plug or can they just sit in the cupboard if they're wood screws? I've weighed the knife rack with all the knives I intend to use on it and it'll probably come out to under 1kg. I think that should be fine.

My dad's not picking up his mobile and the only person more afraid of the combination of me + power drill than you is myself. Thanks in advance, lads.

I'm not him nor have I used one of those monstrosities, but since it's a whetstone that does the angle for you, I can say that it'll razor sharpen a dull knife in a minute or two, and you can absolutely rescue dinged knives by grinding away on a coarse stone for a while then gradually using finer stones. That might take a while, depending on how fucked the knives are, but probably no more than 20 minutes for civilian damage, and it's quite a zen process.

There are still knife blokes who seem to appear in cookware shops on certain days who will regrind your knives proper. I don't really understand who they work for or why they only charge 2 quid a knife, but if you run into one get him to work his magic.

No doubt about that at all - but I had never seen a metre cubed plus pile of poo before and I never want to again. What surprised me was it didn't look anything like what you see at the sewage or water works - it was just a huge fucking pile of poo under a manhole cover in my garden.

Have the utmost respect for the people who do these kind of jobs - there is a funny little man at work who spends the entire day going to each floor and cleaning out the gents shitters; I try to make sure I say hello every time I see him.

Looks to me like a road resurfacing machine - that might be the scraper bit that goes ahead of the actual asphalt laying bit - those usually have a big hopper thing at the back where all the asphalt is poured. So I think >>4094 is almost right. At the front might be some big wire wheels that spin and scrape off the top layer of the old asphalt and prepare the service as a key for the new asphalt on top.

I am always wildly impressed by those bits of kit, whichever end of the machine it is - when you get the whole "train" of them working and resurfacing, they cover a lot of ground very quickly and leave nothing but perfect road in their wake. Looks like a shitty job to do, but I imagine like most road construction jobs they are paid well. Statistically, working on road works is pretty fucking dangerous.

This evening I shall be having dinner with, then fucking, a delightful young lady. This has happened before and there is no chance of this moving beyond a fuck buddy arrangement, partly due to huge age gap. I'm fine with that, my only concern is whether I should confess to having wanked over her, very wankable, Instagram pics. She dies have thousands of followers and posts a lot of lingerie type selfies so I suspect she won't spazz ut if I tell her.

So I've worked for the NHS most of my adult life and whenever I've needed a job I've just gone on the NHS jobs website. I'm now considering leaving the NHS and looking for something maybe related but not with the same level of bullshit, I guess.

>>12115 It's not the higher pay, and I'm fully aware that the NHS has good pension, good workers rights and more annual leave. To be honest, I work for a trust that's in very bad shape and I'm just getting sick of the sense of hopelessness, being asked to do more with less and short-term political manoeuvres in upper management that just tick a box and do nothing to improve patient care.

I suppose I've been a bit vague in what I'm after. I'd quite like something perhaps in a school or university or GP surgery, so I'm not completely selling out and going fully private healthcare. I've got a fair bit of experience and additional qualifications so I wouldn't be looking at being a staff nurse, I'd want to be looking at having something more independent, I guess. Just with less of the bullshit.

But I'll fully admit, you might be right that I might be just be thinking the grass is greener.

Actually, a big part of the price premium is to do with the funding model.

As a member of permanent staff, your post is funded from the trust's operational budget, which means it's subject to the stresses of below-inflation increases (i.e. real-terms cuts), and the resulting pressure on the trust to identify what they do best and find more ways of doing less of it better. If they need an extra nurse but there's no headroom in the operational budget, they can't create the post.

As agency staff are effectively either at-will or for a fixed term, the accountants can do a bit of voodoo and charge them to capital budgets. If they need an extra nurse but don't have the funding to create a post, they can spend money from other budgets on agency and contract staff.

The agencies know that they are providers of last resort, so can gouge to fuck. They also know that if they can poach staff away from payroll, that directly increases demand for their services. That means an agency can effectively take an NHS employee away from and hire them back to the same trust at a premium. In order to be able to attract staff, knowing they aren't offering the same benefits they have to offer significantly higher pay, otherwise nobody would join them.

tl;dr fatcats gonna fat.

>What a beautiful country, what a beautiful people, what a fucked up government
Italy is used to electoral chaos, but this one really is mental. Pretty much every combination has some major flaw to it. Let's look at these parties in descending order of sensibility.

Second place: Democrats. Centre-left, took over after the technocrats. Very much an establishment grouping.

First place: Five Star. Anti-establishment populists, some common ground with Democrats but blame them for the ills ailing the country.

Third place: League. Italy's LFR grouping, marginally to the right of ARE NIGE. Blame all the problems on immigrants and lazy southerners, historically argued for parts of the north to secede. Generally not a good look for government.

Fourth place: Forza Italia. Berlusconi - end of story.

In short, imagine Arsenal, Spurs, Chelsea and Millwall.

Disappointing. The report seems to say that while they were in the letter of the law, they weren't in the spirit of it.

Not a good look, seeing as this comes directly from DCMS.

I actually agree, to a level, even though it'll never happen.

I really don't see stuff like salbutamol or blood doping to be anything other than an extension of the min-maxing that characterises cycling, or marginal gains as Sky likes to call it.

Nobody is surprised that Sky was doing this, though I'm genuinely surprised they got caught out. As it has been from Froome to Armstrong to Pantani, it's not like they were the only doped riders in the peloton. It's so widespread.

I'm wondering how long it is before questions are asked about our Olympic cycling record - given that Sir Dave had a controlling hand in both.

Quite.

But then, we do live in an age where people are apparently so naive that politicians lying is treated as the scandal of the century.

You can legally possess a revolver as long as its barrel is >30cm long. It's a weird one but the definition of "small arms" is partially to do with the the length of the barrel.

America is so dull that people have to make organized trips to Las Vegas (aka Adult Disneyland) so that they can have access to the kind of things we brits can find on any high street in the land: gambling, escorts, and twenty-four hour drinking.

Shooting guns is pretty fun, but it seems lost on the seppos that not only is it still perfectly possible to do here, it's quite possibly one of the most popular things for a rural toff to do.

/£$€¥/3840 Pensions
The OFT have come out and said that many old (i.e. set up before 2001) pension schemes have high charges and offer savers poor value for money. They've also suggested a cap for auto-enrolment schemes, but it's going to be an almost meaningless gesture as you'd be very hard pressed to find a provider offering auto-enrolment terms with annual management charges greater than 1% anyway.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-24153012

The pension scheme I'm in at work (contribution: 5% employer, 5% employee gross) has management charges of 0.6%, which I'm alright with as it's less than I'd get if I was investing in collectives through an ISA.

However, I've put the charges and contribution details into Invidion's pension calculator for an idea of what I'd get when I'm 65, 40 years from now, and if my salary increases in line with National Average Earnings and I took the 25% tax-free lump sum I'd be looking at a pension in today's terms of 27.5% of my current salary. If I wanted a pension that would be about two-thirds of what I'm earning now then I'll need to contribute, assuming the employer contribution stays at 5%, 15% gross (12% net) of my salary every year for the next four decades. This does depend on what annuity rates will be like then and I'd also be getting the State Pension, as long as they haven't upped the age you receive it to 80 by then.

If it wasn't for the tax relief and my employer matching my contributions then I doubt I'd bother and I'd look into other ways to support myself while I'm in retirement. What about you lads? What are your thoughts on pensions? In my opinion to have any form of decent retirement income you're at the mercy of your employer offering a good pension scheme.

I don't know why I think this, but thats the sort of thing you think we would be brilliant at.

Do people still do the football pools? As a kid I remember the man knocking the door every Friday evening. Years later my grandfather sold his house to a man who had "won the pools".

For a brief millisecond, I once considered paying for the site through affiliate tags on links posted, which is much the same model as Avon, but thought it underhand.

This is why I will never, ever be a millionaire.

I remember my grandad used to do the pools, and the big, important one was Littlewoods Pools so god knows what happened to that.

I saw my dad had entered a spot the ball on twitter about a week ago, to win a new phone or something. Wasn't expecting that, he normally just tweets about the IRA.

I remember being very impressed back in the early days when you made it clear you never wanted to run ads here. It's probably the main reason I settled in here as I did.

Saying that I think that's the one way you could have done it without annoying anybody. It's essentially unintrusive, and only really underhand if you're not upfront about it.

I have a schoolfriend who made a fuck tonne on SEO and affiliate farming back in the mid 2000's when the algorithms were much easier to game. I never knew how much he truly made because he was also selling a PDF about how to make megabux fast, so I have to assume he was inflating his earnings a fair amount for that. Nonetheless he bought his own house at 20 so he didn't do terribly.

I was very jealous at the time but now I'm older and grumpier, I can't imagine a more soul sucking way to make a living, even if he was able to 'work from home or anywhere in the world!' as his blog would say.

If you come into possession of any money, I highly recommend exchanging it for a couple of Buffs® (or the dirt cheap unbranded ones you can get off Ebay or shops like trespass.)
You can squash them down to nothing in a back pocket, and you've got a hat or scarf whenever you need one.

>Would earplugs work do you think?

Not him but I find headphones help so yeah. Earmuffs also work and that is one of the reasons they exist.

What is happening is cold air is getting into your ear canal which is covered with sensitive nerve endings and lacks anything in the way of protection from the cold. Combined this leads to a brain-freeze in the ear.

My problem with running outside is the first twenty minutes. I can do it on a machine, I can establish a nice rhythm, get over that first wheezing bit, and then I'm good for a long time - outside in the cold, it seems to take a lot longer and there is more chance I would give up early on a run.

Well, since posting in this thread 7 weeks ago about getting back on the cardio, I have religiously walked at least 140k steps a week, cut slightly back on the alcohol, logged all my calories eaten and have lost 8 kilos.
