So my Three contract (24m One Plan at £33.50pm) is finally bloody ending and I'd rather not keep paying for this lacklustre Galaxy S4. It's caused me more bother than good.

Do any of you chaps have recommendations for a more modern handset, perhaps on contract at a lesser price? Stock Android is a bonus. Expandable memory is a must.

Really dreadful treatment of heart problems lad in /emo/.

Seven years I've posted on this site (ignore current IP) and have never felt the real need before to complain about moderation. It was a real problem, maybe one of the most serious ever written about on /emo/, and one he was perfectly entitled to be a grumpy sod about.

> People on their death beds generally aren't angry and contemptuous.
You clueless fucking wanker. Almost sad how little life experience you have.

>Regardless of whether or not you're actually dying, you're just being rude to people
Drop dead.

I don't do /irc/ or any of that so cannot get on the supersecret clique to find out exactly how these mistakes were made or who is to blame. Someone needs to see to this though.

I picked up a pair of these on a whim in a junk shop the other day, Pioneer SE-205s, for a shade under £3. They're in good nick, comfortable, built like a brick shit house, offer nice isolation and when properly driven have surprisingly good, clear bass response, much better than I'd expect from a set of headphones of their age (somewhere between '74 and '88). Unfortunately, while they're nice enough for classical, folk, jazz and so on, they get muddier as the source gets hotter; not great for anything much modern, and hopeless for metal, breakcore etc.

So I'm wondering, is studiolad still around, or any of the other audioheads that have graced these parts over the years, to offer a bit of advice? They're 70mm drivers (4Ω) so I'm thinking of trying to find a suitable "spare/repair" modern donor pair on ebay, but are there alternatives, like somewhere specialist online where I can just buy decent replacement drivers without them costing more than the project is worth? At ~£2.80 it's not like I'm particularly invested so far, and while I do like how solid the construction is on these, I'm not about to go cannibalising a better working set of headphones for that reason alone.

Ta lads. (I thought this was more /g/ than /beat/ on account of it being a hardware question, but will repost there if requested.)

I've just been to the heart surgeon, he almost broke down crying when he saw that I had no improvements in the last six months. Very unsettling, usually surgeons are cold hearted son-of bitches. Lung functionality is 45%, it is like having somebody blocking your nose and mouth 24/7. I have to sleep sitting down, otherwise I will suffocate. The lung doctor discharged me, he said that there is nothing they can do and that keeping me in the hospital put me at risk of infection.

I want to break up with my GF in the worst way possible, so she goes away and does not miss me, then off myself. I've already bought two meters of strong rope, with my rotting lungs it will be quick and painless. I am sorry for you people, staying back in this shit planet. Thanks for giving me so much help, laughter and companionship all those years.

MADDIE MUM'S BID TO WIN BGT

Kate McCann’s Missing People Choir brings Britain’s Got Talent judges to tears with heartbreaking secret audition.

An audience member in London said: “Images of some of the missing people they were linked to also flashed up on the screen which had everyone in tears.


https://www.thesun.co.uk/tvandshowbiz/2753198/kate-mccanns-missing-people-choir-brings-britains-got-talent-judges-to-tears-with-heartbreaking-secret-audition/

The performance is expected to be shown on ITV in May, marking exactly ten years since Madeleine went missing from Praia Da Luz in Portugal.

http://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-news/kate-mccanns-missing-people-choir-9733959

The Missing People’s Choir is made up of families searching for lost loved ones and includes Peter Lawrence, father of Claudia Lawrence, who disappeared in York in 2009.

The choir reportedly reduced onlookers to tears during the BGT auditions with their tear-jerking song I Miss You, written by Peter Boxell, whose son Lee went missing from Sutton, south London, in 1988.

/fat/4203 Strength standards
Every year on the third week of Feburary I build up to a series of 1 rep max to 5 rep max strength tests.

I'm happy to say I'm stronger than last year. Main gains have been in the bench press, having put nearly 20kg on there through working on my shoulders and improving my bench technique. I've also managed to put on about 5kg of quality bodyweight with minimum chub.

Current numbers are:
100kg bench press
150kg squat
160kg deadlift
@ 80kg bodyweight

For my fellow /fat/ lifters, what are your current numbers? What are your goals?

A few weeks ago I bought a cheapo 35Kg barbell set from argos to get me started. I probably should have gone straight to a 50Kg set since I know I could easily manage a few deadlifts with the full weight, but doing 10 minutes of completely unstructured lifting with a 20Kg barbell and 4Kg dumbells seems a good start.

When I got started I was doing bicep curls and lateral raises with plastic dumbbells, then running downstairs to drink a pint of milk. I genuinely think it was one of the best decisions in my life to try lifting.

If I drop a sweet wrapper it's littering. If I drop a tenner it's not.

If I drop thousands of tenners in Buckingham palace, would I get done for littering?

If I leave a perfectly fine yet suspicious looking sofa on the council owned path, it's littering, but if I leave a car there, it's not.

If my car is worth less than my sofa, then what's actually happening?

I'm genuinely looking for some clarity on this subject, why is litter litter? Is it just *completely subjective*? Or is there some reason?

/beat/8707 Cover songs
The Pet Shop Boys' Always On My Mind has been voted the top cover version of all time in a BBC Music vote.

The song, written by John Christopher, Mark James and Wayne Carson, was first made famous by Brenda Lee and Elvis Presley in 1972.

Johnny Cash's cover of Nine Inch Nails' Hurt came in second place, followed by The Stranglers' version of Dionne Warwick's Walk On By. Jimi Hendrix's take on Bob Dylan's All Along The Watchtower came fourth. Jeff Buckley's cover of Leonard Cohen's classic Hallelujah completed the top five.


http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-29791820

Not keen on that version of Walk On By but I like the rest. I reckon I'd have to have a good think about my favourite covers and I'm sure I'd still forget some.

Does anyone here ever feel the need to give their arse a wipe after a long run and upon doing so finding out the condition between your cheeks is as if you haven't wiped properly after using the toilet. Despite this you know that your arse was clean before you left and you don't remember having a prolonged farting session.

Asking for a friend.

This is why I shave my arse.

A minimal amount of wiping with toilet paper and I'm squeaky clean and rimmable for the rest of the day.

Preaching to the choir. My dream is to own one of those Japanese toilets so I can give my shitting experience the luxury it deserves.

Those toilets are properly weird. They talk to you, the seats are constantly warmed for some reason, and they play music if you're taking a shit to cover up the sound (whilst also broadcasting to everyone else that you're taking a shit, sort of defeats the purpose if you ask me). Then it fucking squirts water at your arse.

Give me a regular bit of porcelain any day.

/emo/23546 A happy emo thread? Locked
So yeah who would have thought that it would be possible to have a happy thread on here? Anyway after finishing a ten year relationship, two years later I have just met a beautiful lady in an random encounter. As they say when you ain't looking is when you find it. It's only been a few days so far but I never thought I'd meet someone like this that would reciprocate the interest!

Update on the situation...

I left it off with the original girl until last night. I ended up having a right mad one. She turned up at my place and we had a right good drink etc and things got pretty passionate. I don't know how I managed it but she fell asleep on the sofa and I ended up fucking my next door neighbour which was pretty good as she is only 20!I have took her home earlier but she fell asleep on me:

I do not have a clue how I've been doing it recently but I also managed to shag 2 other women last week...

I'm 25 in a few months. Halfway through my twenties. If you asked me if I've enjoyed the last 5 years I could honestly tell you no. I've got a small group of friends that I don't see much anymore, a wonderful girlfriend, but my life is just... Boring. I've had no employment luck. My experience is minimal both professionally and in my personal life. I don't DO anything besides video games. I have too few friends. I fucked up years ago by being complacent. I was happy with my small group of active friends, but they've gone their own ways, be it abroad or into the arms of a girl. I feel like these years have flown by, not in a whirlwind but a drizzle. I'll probably find a job soon. Itll allow me to move out of my parents house. Live with my girlfriend. That'll be nice. I'll probably marry her, settle down harder than I am already. Drink too much. Ask myself whether that was it. Whether that was what all this fuss was about. I want memories and experiences, I don't have the means to have them. I don't know what to do. Life is on fast forward for me.

Fucking hell would've loved this when I was 25. In some places m8 it simply isn't possible. House prices are insane around where I am, if you don't have a two person income you're not going to get a place on your own, even with a decent job.

/job/11062 Getting into journalism
I remember a really good thread a few years ago with advice about making a living out of journalism but now, when I need it the most, it's disappeared. As such I'm wondering if any of our resident Ed Winchesters can help me.

I always harboured a desire to work in journalism growing up, but through a series of inconsistent life decisions I've ended up working as an account executive for a PR agency for the last 3 months. I'm growing disillusioned with it (as tends to happen with most of my life decisions after a few months) and feel like I want to cross over to the other side and become a journo.

I haven't published much in ages and my only formal experience in journalism is a shitty short-lived internship several years ago. So my main question is, how likely am I going to be able to make a living out of journalism?

I remember in the previously referenced Ed Winchester's thread he pushed freelancing as the most lucrative path. I'd like that one day (though not because of the money), but I imagine the consistency of a salaried gig would be better while I'm starting out in the industry and still have rent to pay. What's the best way of landing such opportunities? Are most of them advertised publicly or are they behind closed doors on Gorkana and ResponseSource et al. (which I have access to)? I'm also a member of the NUJ, so is there much potential for finding jobs through that? And are NCTJ qualifications usually mandatory?

If it makes any difference I'd ideally like to report on tech and/or political news (I'm currently working in tech PR and I do a fair bit of activism in my spare time).

Cheers in advance for any advice.

>I would appreciate a chat. Indeed, I'd be willing to buy any London journloads pints at Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese in exchange for their time and advice.

Email a few journalists and ask them for advice. I've found that people are often remarkably willing to help if you just ask. There's a strata of people in every industry who know enough to be really useful, but are low enough on the totem pole to be flattered by the attention.

School teaches you that there's a prescribed way of doing everything, that you're only allowed to progress if someone in authority gives you a bit of paper saying that you can. In the real world, you can just send some e-mails to firstname.lastname@company.com and see what happens.

I know this sounds really simple but it's something nobody ever told me yet come in insanely useful when I got into the habit- just trawl through Linkedin profiles.

Sit down for about two or three hours at your computer and just google 'journalist' and the name of the type of publication you want to work for and then tag Linkedin on the end. For the most part, it will turn up the profiles of loads of people who work or used to work at those places.

From there just click their profiles and have a look at the kind of jobs they did beforehand and the kind of qualifications and things that they studied.

This has been immensely helpful to me in the past in looking at both how to market myself and what kind of things should be on my CV. Bonus points if people add their responsibilities and not just job titles, you can see how they phrase things to hit the key points.

In terms of looking for the jobs I'm sorry I can't help as I've no idea where to start. I imagine having your own blog about the issues isn't a bad idea either, both to showcase your work and show dedication to prospective employers. Churning out a handful of articles a week on tech and politics shouldn't be too difficult.

Good luck
