20571 Minor rants and piss-offs MK IV Locked
Taking into account the sentiment in the OP of >>17297, time for a new thread.

My Mother is up to visit my sister and hasn't even offered to make me soup even though I'm ill. A pox on her first born ch-...wait.

It strangely pleases me that the MK I and MK II threads I created eons ago have caught on...

Anyway, hardly anything to rant about lately - people ranting is largely segregated to the work annoyances, but I guess... Any news about the royals always makes my eyes roll.

The current maintenance work on the trams in Manchester which in turn makes the train commutes even more of a hassle as you have to walk an extra 15 minutes (30 if it's crowded and people do that stupid thing where they walk slow and occasionally stop in front of you) in between Deansgate and Piccadilly station or take the Oxford road train which is less frequent than Piccadilly.

What's particularly annoying is the work is for 14 months. Sure they'll say services will resume on a reduced scale after summer holidays but everyone knows it means "no trams during your schedule".

Google forcing their Android design decisions onto desktop users.

Google maps works great on my phone. However having an enormous and mostly empty bar scroll in from the left of my PC monitor is completely pointless. It results in far more extra clicking just to save a tiny fraction of screen space.

I hate how when you're reading a hardback book the dust jacket always seems to slide out of place ever so slightly presenting a crumple risk. It might sounds like a minor issue but a decent condition dust jacket can often fetch more in value than the book itself.

I've missed the best days of Summer my corner of blighty has had so far this year, housebound with the bastard flu.

I know some supermarkets don't stock Israeli produce on protest grounds, namely Co-op, but I would imagine they grow oranges? They grow everything else it seems, half of the veg you see in Tesco is from Israel, we could get them from there.

I've just conjured the image of the man from Del Monte slipping Sajid Javid (Yes, I had to google him too) a wad of notes saying "It's ok... you don't want any of that Israeli muck."

What matters is that you are capable of doing what they want once you get your foot in the door, you just have to tick the right HR boxes to get through the newbie filter. You might need to be somewhat flexible with the truth, but don't think of it as dishonesty. Think of it as using initiative.

Affectionately called Sports Soccer or Soccer Sport in most of the circles I hang about in.

There's just SO MUCH FUCKING STUFF. You can't see the shit you're looking to buy either for all of the other shit they've got, which is not helped by the fact that the space between the shit is so small that one inconveniently-placed fatty (an altogether-too-frequent occurrence) means that you have to try to trace a whole new path around the shop. It might be easier to just ask the staff, were they not more concerned with flirting with each other and actually had any interest at all in the sports related to the shit they peddle.

20725 An oversimplified explanation
>>20724
In 32-bit land, Windows reserves the upper half of the address space for system use. With a little tweak you can shift the balance from 2:2 to 3:1. On a 32-bit system, this is the total space usable, while on a 64-bit system it's per-process.

By comparison, for 64-bit processes the address space is 48-bit, and before you hit that 256TB limit you'll more likely hit an artificial cap based on which edition you're running.

I was about to make pretty much the exact same explanation myself, but then noticed a gap in my knowledge. I'd appreciate it if you or anyone else could answer this.

I do understand the differences in RAM usage between 64 and 32-bit windows, but I can't quite understand if there are any specific issues with using a 32-bit process within a 64-bit OS. Can a 32-bit process still use its theoretical limit when the system has access to more, or am I right to assume that its RAM usage is limited by the need to run an emulator within windows?

The Martin Amis character in 'Money' and how the narrator describes him is hilarious. It's a classy '80s novel with populist appeal, one of the writer's very best.

'Bret Easton Ellis' who narrates 'Lunar Park' as an alcoholic sex addict professor who can't finish his terrible new shocking book Teenage Pussy is pretty funny too.

It is a cheap old literary device called metafiction if I remember correctly but if it's done well can be great, not crass.

It's a theme that recurs often enough to warrant a wikipedia entry of a list of books written by fictional writers that feature (often as protagonists) in his books:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_fictional_books_in_the_works_of_Stephen_King
Though I'll confess that after dragging myself through some of his most famous books as a teenager (Misery, It, Salem's Lot and The Shining - all of which feature writers as protagonists, as I recall) I was pretty much done with him and his shit, irrespective of the author-surrogate-as-protagonist shtick. His writing style is just awful.

Have you ever had gypsies move in near you?

They steal. They let their dogs loose to wander in front of cars and attack people who get too close, which isn't actually close at all. If they have horses then they're usually mistreated. The kids are feral and go around committing acts of petty violence. They leave wherever they have been in an absolute state, covered in litter and human waste and it's not them that ends up footing the bill to sort it out.

I don't think anyone has ever been happy to have gypsies pitch on a green space or car park near them.

Sadly true. To put that in context; we have a thing called the Royal Welsh Show held in the summer every year. It only lasts 4 days and people will come from all around, including gypsies.

Our council has worked out due to the problems they create, it's cheaper to lease some land directly next to the show grounds in perpetuity than it is to deal with the aftermath of having them in random laybys etc for 4 fucking days.

I was once taking my favourite country road out of town and as soon as I turned onto it I hit an immediate roadblock of scruffy-looking cars parking up on both sides of the road and whole families of people getting out, there were probably in the region of 500 people that I had to negotiate my car through before I got past the cemetery they were all heading to, and then they were all gone. It was later printed in the Ull Derly Merl that there had been some gypsy grandparent that had died and travelling families had been coming from all over the country to the funeral.

I also once had a small herd of gypsy horses run out in front of my car as they appeared to be having some fun and chasing each other around the council estate the road served as a border of, which was actually quite endearing to see, but did shit me up a bit at first.

I don't mind gypsies. I was texting one recently, she was nice.

They are both words which are used to describe the Romani people. The reason the word Gypsy has negative connotations is because of it's use to describe travelling people who aren't always Romani. I pointed this out in my first post. The Sinti are, in fact, Romani. I think you might be confusing them with the arab Ashkalis, but regardless, if Gypsy is derogatory then so is Sinti and being an uppity twat about it makes you look like you're spoiling for a fight or something.

You very clearly don't have a clue what you're talking about and your reading comprehension can't even measure up to properly understanding what the person you are trying to have an argument with is saying, never mind get your point across without making a complete and utter idiot of yourself.

All over, although obviously the business has changed. The "rag and bone" trade is a thin facade for what is basically organised metal theft. White vans are inconspicuous because they're so ordinary - nobody pays any attention to some blokes in work clothes loading a van.

Going around asking for scrap obviously earns some money, but it's really just a cover for theft. An old washing machine is worth a couple of quid, but a bundle of copper pipe or a reel of cable nicked from a building site might be worth a couple of hundred.

Job centre shenanigans but sage for not posting in /job/ but I'm not asking for advice or anything just a bit of a vent.

They've made the same mistake twice. I had to get off ESA because I was no longer eligible for it due to being a student. Fine I was expecting it and told them to stop it. Two months into being a student I notice they paid me ESA and had to get onto them to ask what the fuck they were doing. They froze the payments but didn't take the money back. Brought it up with them and they told me they'll post me what I owe them. They never did.

End of the academic year I told job centre I was getting a job and would no longer be eligible for DLA and asked what ever happened to that post. Said they'll get on it. So I check my balance and they're still paying me DLA.

Do these lot want to get me done for benefit fraud or something? I can't believe they can be this incompetent.

So now I owe them roughly £900 because they fucked up. They said the last time I may be able to keep some of the money and I can pay with a payment plan rather than all at once but given their actions it may as well be a lie. I can understand if it was just the once but twice is a fucking insult.

This past weekend I have returned an item to Amazon. The package was to go via Royal Mail's "Tracked Returns 48" service. Let's start with the "48" part. To the untrained eye, in the same way that "24" means delivery within 24 hours, the "48" might mean delivery within 48 hours. I left the parcel at the local PO on Friday morning, which should mean that even if it's not collected until close-of-business, it should arrive on Monday (Sunday being a non-post day). On Monday night, Amazon still had no knowledge of me ever having sent it. Let's turn to another part of that recipe: the "Tracked" part. As of Monday night, the tracking log had a single entry on it, namely that I'd handed it over on Friday morning. No indication that it might have reached a depot, or anything like that. When they finally delivered it this morning, they eventually deigned to record it on the tracking log at around 6pm.

Could be worse. It could have gone via Yodel, in which case the box would have been garryowened over the fence at the wrong depot.

Even if we weren't living under the Tories I wouldn't ever advise you to think trying to keep a benefit overpayment was worth it. When they come after you, and you'll never know when, you want your hands completely clean. That couple of hundred quid now could cost you social security for the rest of your life. I don't know what the rules are now, but surely it's not difficult to imagine what the Tories could cook up in the future to punish you for any real or perceived moment of weakness.

You couldn't be convicted of a social security offence as long as you had notified all changes of circumstance in a timely fashion (and could evidence this - if you hit them with a DPA request you may find the particular details you need conveniently missing). You could, however, be prosecuted for the more general offence of "retaining a wrongful credit". The way out of that is to keep the erroneous funds to one side so that they can be repaid on demand. (An acquaintance of mine has managed this with Oracle when they've demanded a licence fee - the value of the fees sits in an interest-bearing account, and he'll pay up as soon as they can provide evidence that the contract exists.) Basically, you don't want their mistake of paying you too much compounded with your mistake of spending it, because theirs doesn't excuse yours.

Which is why I've tried on multiple different occasions to give the money back. It's fairly difficult to figure out how much of it belongs to them on top of the funds that is actually mine. Ask me for the money in one lump sum a few months ago and it would have been done. Now if I do that I'll be living fairly poorly for a while. I really do want to pay it back but they've constantly fucked up and now they've made this situation worse.

Apologies in advance for the long post, I'm just thinking out loud.

Twitter occasionally shows me a list of "people we think you'd like" or some such. The name of someone I have been actively avoiding for ten years just popped up, which completely freaked me out. I can't fathom how Twitter made the connection, as my account is completely pseudonymous and I don't follow anyone that I know in real life.

It might be pure coincidence, but it has brought into sharp contrast my unease about privacy in the age of big data. I'm just someone with an unhappy past that I'd rather forget; I can't imagine how frightening all this must be for someone escaping from domestic abuse or state oppression. Some of the biggest companies in the world are investing vast efforts to scrutinise every aspect of our lives, for no other reason than to sell us stuff we don't need. That's a shit state of affairs.

I don't feel angry, just sad. I feel privileged that my worst adolescent bullshit happened before the internet and cameraphones, which is absurd. I feel lucky that my teenage diaries have been recycled into bog roll rather than lingering online forever. I remember when Mhairi Black was being pilloried by the tabloids for some silly nonsense she tweeted when she was a teenager. Are we sleepwalking into a situation where we have no choice but to self-censor everything we say and do, for fear that it may embarrass us years or decades in the future?

Even if something isn't public now, it may become so in the future - just look at the Ashley Madison leak. Apparently two people have already killed themselves as a result of that leak. We joke about the panopticon, the casual "don't say that, you'll get put on a list" remarks. How long before that unease turns into a real fear, until we're all second-guessing everything we do based on how it might look when taken out of context, or viewed prejudicially?

This is a slightly silly analogy, but I remember watching an episode of House featuring a patient with a perfect memory. Her life was miserable because she remembered every petty slight, every cruel comment made in the heat of the moment. Apparently it's a real condition, hyperthesmia. I wonder if the perfect memory of the internet is doing that to society, turning us all into bitter nostalgics who can't let go of the past. In a world where nothing can ever be forgotten, can we ever forgive? Will we all become defined by our mistakes? Are we teaching future generations to live lives that are cautious and inoffensive above all else?

I don't like where we're headed, and I don't see how we can stop it.

Unfortunately, "all that shit" is almost the whole of modern society. I can choose not to carry a mobile phone so that my location isn't constantly tracked, but that would completely marginalise me - people no longer know how to make firm plans, because they expect to be able to ring you en-route. I'm not on Facebook, and know that there are parties that I don't get invited to simply because nobody can be bothered letting me know personally. If someone does arse themselves to ring me up, the photos taken at that party will be tagged with my name. We have structured our social lives around surveillance technology.

Most of the books I want to buy are only available on Amazon because of their near-monopoly, so Jeff Bezos has a comprehensive list of my reading material going back years. Even if what I want to read is available at the library, they're probably selling my lending records to marketers. When I go shopping I can choose to pay cash, but I can't opt-out of CCTV with facial recognition.

For about the fourth month in a row, EE have sent me another message claiming that my account is in arrears. This is actually correct, in that I haven't actually paid them anything. I haven't paid them anything because I set up a Direct Debit. I confirmed with them twice over the phone that it was there and linked to me account. I confirmed with the bank twice that it was there and ready to take payment. The bank have also confirmed that no transaction has been declined. The balance remains outstanding because EE are lazy pieces of shit who can't even be bothered to reach into my pockets when I've given them a fucking open invitation to do so.

Yesterday I found a bank card on the street. Instead of exploring the spending limits of contactless, looking for the billing address and/or finding somewhere that wouldn't require it I phoned to report the loss to Barclays. The third time I was asked for *my* details I found myself shouting "Do you speak English?". I can't even do a good deed without appearing the asshole. I bet it was just bad phone signal as well.

I only do this when speaking in metaphors to make a topic more relatable in order to aid comprehension.

It annoys me when people do it out of context, but I think the reason people do it is because every time something difficult has been explained to them the person who has explained it to them has used a similar system to what I do and they are trying to emulate that, but don't have the savvy to make it work.

The Times is slanted in many respects but I find it a lot mellower and to the point. The FT is still my primary non-domestic (ie. man stabs dog) news source.

Children. Specifically my own, again.

My daughter, aged five, was at the childminders yesterday, as was another girl from her class at school.

"Was it nice having someone from your class there?"

Children are naturally racist. Not being racist is the bit you have to be taught. It's an instinct to dislike someone who is visually distinctly different. This is a fact.

There was nothing racist about my post you daft prick. "I don't like her because she has brown skin" is textbook racism, the very definition.

You are correct to say there's no malice in it though. A child doesn't understand why a person having brown skin isn't a valid reason to dislike someone- In a child's mind it's only the same as not liking sprouts.

I have an application form for the union at work. It tells me I should put my forename as it appears on my payslip. After digging up my payslip I discovered that it doesn't actually show my forename at all. It just addresses me by way of "Mr R I Perrin".

Of course, I should probably have some faith that, given it's a union, it'll be handled at the other end by an actual person rather than a computer that's going to attempt to match it. That said, my workplace is rather bureaucratic so I bet even that wouldn't stop them sending it back for me to fill in again.

It's one of those "4chan things" that has somehow leaked out and penetrated culture at large. For better or worse, that website has actually had a pretty massive effect on culture in general.

As I was saying to the mate in a pub earlier, it rather puts one's life into perspective, if you are of a certain age, to think that those impact-font picture memes you see everywhere now, were once an insider kind of joke amongst users of a certain obscure image board over a decade ago. I'm sure at least a few of you lads will know this feel, as they say.

I was thinking of a sick prank where I would fabricate a fake letter from the council stating that; "The home-owner has been selected to temporarily host a refugee family, and must comply with new rules regarding the acceptance of refugees entering the UK. Duration of the stay will vary, but will be a minimum of 1 month, failure to comply with these new rules will result in fines, and names will be placed into a "name and shame" database."

Colonel: Raiden, are you receiving? We're still here.
Raiden: How's that possible!? The AI was destroyed!
Colonel: Only GW...
Raiden: Who are you?
Colonel: To begin with -- we're not what you'd call -- human.
Over the past two hundred years --
A kind of consciousness formed layer by layer in the crucible of the White House.
It's not unlike the way life started in the oceans four billion years ago.
The White House was our primordial soup, a base of evolution --
We are formless. We are the very discipline and morality that Americans invoke so often.
How can anyone hope to eliminate us? As long as this nation exists, so will we.
Raiden: Cut the crap! If you're immortal, why would you take away individual freedoms and censor the Net?
Rose: Jack, don't be silly.
Colonel: Don't you know that our plans have your interests -- not ours -- in mind?
Rose: Jack, listen carefully like a good boy!
Colonel: The mapping of the human genome was completed early this century.
As a result, the evolutionary log of the human race lay open to us.
Rose: We started with genetic engineering, and in the end, we succeeded in digitizing life itself.
Colonel: But there are things not covered by genetic information.
Human memories, ideas. Culture. History.
Rose: Genes don't contain any record of human history.
Colonel: Is it something that should not be passed on?
Should that information be left at the mercy of nature?
Rose: We've always kept records of our lives. Through words, pictures, symbols... from tablets to books...
But not all the information was inherited by later generations.
Colonel: A small percentage of the whole was selected and processed, then passed on. Not unlike genes, really.
Rose: That's what history is, Jack.
Colonel: But in the current, digitized world,
trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness.
Never fading, always accessible.
Rose: Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander...
Colonel: All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate.
Rose: It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution.
Colonel: Raiden, you seem to think that our plan is one of censorship.
Raiden: Are you telling me it's not!?
Rose: You're being silly! What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.
Raiden: Create context?
Colonel: The digital society furthers human flaws and selectively rewards
development of convenient half-truths.
Just look at the strange juxtapositions of morality around you.
Rose: Billions spent on new weapons in order to humanely murder other humans.
Colonel: Rights of criminals are given more respect than the privacy of their victims.
Rose: Although there are people suffering in poverty, huge donations are made to protect endangered species.
Everyone grows up being told the same thing.
Colonel: Be nice to other people.
Rose: But beat out the competition!
Colonel: "You're special." "Believe in yourself and you will succeed."
Rose: But it's obvious from the start that only a few can succeed...
Colonel: You exercise your right to "freedom" and this is the result.
All rhetoric to avoid conflict and protect each other from hurt.
The untested truths spun by different interests continue to churn and accumulate
in the sandbox of political correctness and value systems.
Rose: Everyone withdraws into their own small gated community, afraid of a larger forum.
They stay inside their little ponds,
leaking whatever "truth" suits them into the growing cesspool of society at large.
Colonel: The different cardinal truths neither clash nor mesh.
No one is invalidated, but nobody is right.
Rose: Not even natural selection can take place here. The world is being engulfed in "truth."
Colonel: And this is the way the world ends. Not with a bang, but a whimper.
Rose: We're trying to stop that from happening.
Colonel: It's our responsibility as rulers.
Just as in genetics, unnecessary information and memory must be filtered out
to stimulate the evolution of the species.
Raiden: And you think you're qualified to decide what's necessary and not!?
Colonel: Absolutely. Who else could wade through the sea of garbage you people produce,
retrieve valuable truths and even interpret their meaning for later generations?
Rose: That's what it means to create context.

All very good suggestions above, especially the suggestion to find a catering supplier. The latter are the only place that'll carry stainless frying-anything outside of woks, but of those you either already know what you're doing or I'd stay away.

For a more pedestrian approach I found Sainsbury's of all places sometimes has good offerings for small to mid-sized pots. Their usual range is non-stick blah or enamel faff, but once in a while they wheel out the copper-bottom things which are tough as nails and generally quite good, particularly on gas. The lids are not ideal, though. They are a glass dome with a metal rim affair which has a nasty little gap on the inside between the metal and glass which is a bugger to clean without a decent brush.

If you have a local Robert Dyas that's also worth a shot: some of their shops have a really decent selection.

My friend, who blames her problems on everyone else and doesn't take any responsibility for them.

• The reason she is working in an office job rather than in the field she did her degree in, nearly a decade after graduating, is because she never went on to do a Masters. Apparently only privileged children with parents who'll pay for the course can study for a Masters.

• Her office job pays her just shy of £20k a year and she has a very good deal on bills and her rent so she has a disposable income of nearly a grand a month. The reason she can't afford a house is solely down to the property bubble and has absolutely nothing to do with the facts that she doesn't actually save any of her money and that she only wants to consider some of the most expensive neighbourhoods in the area.

It really is an Oriental/poor nations type of mentality. I would have thought being born here and buying shite from Argos rather than an actual Bazaar would get rid of that attitude. but I was wrong.

This is partly the reason western tourists get ripped off badly when they go travelling because they never haggle. So if you visit India or Kenya or whatever, they will rip you off badly.

Passengers in first class pay disproportionately high fares, cross-subsidising the cheaper fares in standard. Business travellers with expense accounts pay grossly inflated prices for flexible tickets, while people paying from their own pocket get big discounts on advanced fares. It seems paradoxical, but the demand-based ticket pricing used by rail and air operators is effectively a redistribution of wealth.

U WOT M8?

Let's say I want to travel from Manchester to London tomorrow morning, coming back the same evening. The cheapest set of advanced tickets are £171, which I admit is bloody expensive, but we're booking a peak service at the last minute. A standard Anytime return for the same journey is £329, so even in this worst-case scenario the advanced ticket buyer is paying half the standard fare.

A first class Anytime return on the same route is £470, while the cheapest advanced off-peak fares are £40 return - a 1075% difference between the cheapest and most expensive fare on the same train.

Whether it's my ignorance or sneaky marketing - but absolutely most cuntish thing I've noticed this morning was that Amazon charged me £39 for Amazon Prime, after my free 6 months expired - and they failed to notify me.

Amazon have the best Customer Service of any online retailer I've ever seen, CeX after submitting a negative Trustpilot review come a close second though.

I ordered next day on something a while back with Amazon Logistics and it was a day late, so the refunded my P&P and gave me a £5 voucher.

When I ordered a console off of CeX and they sent me the wrong one, upon leaving a scathing review on Trustpilot they bent over backwards to help me out and gave me a £20 voucher. I had to leave that review to get it sorted it though, because WeCare don't bother their arse getting back to you half the time.

Trustpilot directly affects any bonus a store receives so it's a good way to fuck with them if you feel you're being unfairly dealt with.

You can set it not to automatically charge as soon as you start the free trial, and if you do get charged and don't want it you can get a full refund as long as you haven't used it, and if you do use it without realising you've been charged you can still get an almost full refund.

Also, those outraged by Amazon avoiding tax despite its status as a huge multinational corporation who can self-evidently afford it should note that for most of its operating history, Amazon has not been a profit making enterprise. Not that it's failing or struggling: in fact, their management and a lot of investors don't particularly care or even see profitability as a goal.

None of that means they shouldn't be subject to taxation, but as a company, Amazon is a perfect demonstration of how notions of how a business can be run, the goods and services that those businesses provide, the manner of their provision, and the scale of their operation has changed immeasurably since corporation taxes were first implemented, whilst taxation is still thought of in roughly the same way it was in the early 20th century.

That's a good deal of the reason why HMRC has difficulty getting these companies to pay tax. It's like trying to catch a giant squid with a fishing rod, because it always worked with trout.

And it's absurd to rely on a) a reaction occurring and b) companies responding to it. The only "incentive" that matters is the law. It beggars belief that there are people out there who are surprised that a company which can pay less tax without breaking the law elects to do so.

Well, yes. The only incentive to not avoid it is if they're willing to take the risk of a mass boycott, the risk of which is essentially nothing since Amazon is most people's default online supplier. 100,000 stop using Amazon. So what? Most of them will never use it anyway. Anyone who uses it heavily will continue using it.


But yes, the long and the short of it is there's no reason to not try and avoid tax.

To expand on this, Amazon were historically a high turnover, low profit operation. Revenues were ploughed back into the business to drive its aggressive growth, which meant very little was left over as profit to be distributed. They have turned this around in recent years, with AWS proving to be the main driver of profit, but also with their actual product sales being more profitable than they once were - their margins are no longer as razor-thin as they used to be, and they're shifting much larger volumes than they have done previously.

The reason people label them as cunts is that they could have done all this in the UK and still legitimately paid very little tax until they were making decent profits on their operations here. Indeed, they were probably the only firm that could have done this without having to dodge anything. Instead, they've arranged this legal fiction that you're buying from a company in Luxembourg, and effectively created artificial losses in their UK operation. Tax isn't supposed to be voluntary. Your average man on the street does not get to choose whether he pays his taxes or how much - it's taken from him before he ever sees it.

That's not really true. The main reason for their incorporation in Luxembourg was to enjoy lower rates of VAT on many transactions. Luxembourg charged just 3% VAT on eBooks and 8% on many other digitally-delivered goods, so until the introduction of the place of supply rule, Amazon customers were saving an enormous amount on VAT. Until 2012, Amazon were also shipping many items from Jersey to take advantage of the low-value consignment relief, avoiding VAT altogether on physical goods worth less than £18.

Voicemail spam. I used to use Mr Number to cycle the line on junk calls, but the latest version doesn't seem to do that any more. Instead it just rejects them, leaving me with a ten-second voicemail (often along the lines of "or press 9 and the bank will keep your compensation") that I then have to call up and delete if I don't want to render the voicemail indicator completely useless.

House cats are really needy and tend to be far more affectionate, and will risk it in the hopes of getting some attention.

What he needs to do is start thinking like a cat. Claim the space as his by showing dominant behaviour over the space, shoving her off without initiating verbal communication or making eye contact. Eventually the cat will start perching nearby and only coming over when you initiate eye contact and give a verbal cue.

Cats can't be trained, as such, but they can learn.

Keep coming across lasses I knew at school on Tinder. The ones who haven't turned into munters haven't matched me.

I also hate how small this app makes the world feel. People I would think of as total strangers actually move in pretty close circles to me, sometimes overlapping friend groups in ways that I would never expect which makes me feel slightly nervous and socially inadequate.

You've bought 4 at the same time, hence they've almost certainly came from the same box from the factory which was filled in one go. Of course you've got 4 from the same batch, it would probably be weirder if you had 4 different batches.

Traditional wisdom (which may or may not be cargo-cult thinking) is that you should use disks from different batches, which should have different failure characteristics, which would make it less likely that multiple disks would fail at the same time in the same manner.

So you're just going to block every bog in the fucking hotel, you inconsiderate bastards?

It really winds me up when people can't accept that they might have to break up their routine when in a foreign country. Especially Americans considering that, regardless of the destination, they have invariably shipped more or less their entire culture ahead of time, leaving inconsequential bollocks like toilet paper the only change they'll encounter, but oh no, that just won't do.

True, but that doesn't mean every image macro is a meme. Is putting a caption on a picture of yourself before going 'HURR I'M A MEME' really a meme if the image is never used again/forgotten 5 minutes later?

Yeah, image macros are memetic, but the content may not necessarily be so.

Putting an image of yourself into an image macro and calling yourself a meme is like sitting in a bus and announcing "I'm a bus".

I've been like that since I hit 30 several years ago, but the batteries keep going missing from it to power something else.

Maybe I just have weak, girly fingers but my little finger isn't strong enough to penetrate the sphincter on its own. It's only small, too; that's not going to to much more than tickle.

My ears are blocked again and it fucking hurts. I have an appointment to get them syringed, which is nice as back home I would not be allowed to simply ask for and receive such treatment as there's one district nurse in the whole city able and willing to do it. In the meantime, I've been trying to do what I can with Otex and olive oil to soften the wax.

That was until I found these two articles on what actually dissolves ear wax:
http://dx.doi.org/10.12968/bjon.2007.16.13.24247
http://dx.doi.org/10.1017/S0022215113002375
Which both make it blatantly fucking obvious that olive oil (#2 in the attached picture - a is 30 minutes, b is 3 hours and c is 24 hours) does fuck all in spite of being the go-to ear drop of the NHS, and nor does urea hydrogen peroxide (off-the-shelf Otex ear drops and #5 in the picture).

I do despair, lads. I just want my ears to clear up.

It seems like a "thing" that apparently it's racist because plasters only come in one colour and it doesn't match the skin of anyone except white people.

I have seen people with the skin tone the same as a plaster. After moving to the south Lancashire suburbs, I realised that people here are genuinely like the extras and minor characters from a Peter Kay show. Most of the time when I go to Asda, there will be at least one bloke in his 70s wearing a velour tracksuit unzipped down to his bellybutton with a gold chain and medallion, who must spend at least an hour every day on a sunbed to maintain that level of Oompa Loompa tan.

As long as the rim isn't lunched, the broken spokes can be replaced and the wheel re-trued. Find a scruffy little local bike shop and they should have you up and running for about a tenner.

The wheels are baby-smooth steel, which is a right pain when they are wet, as it has like 10% traction when braking. I don't want to die because it drizzled a bit.

The rear wheel is going to turn lop-sided at some point. The spokes spread the load out evenly, and even a few will eventually fail.

So with these two points, I've decided to get rid of it altogether. Since it's a 80's Peugeot touring bike, it still has a lot of life left in it - but it does need to have some parts replaced.
I know this bloke who know his shit through and through when it comes to fixing bikes. None of these Evans/halfords cowboys would compare. He said it's going to cost £50 in total.

Took a cab home after meeting some people after work. The fare was a fiver and some change, and I didn't have a note smaller than a twenty, so I reach in my pocket to make the change, not wanting a fuckload of shrapnel, and as I reached forward across the passenger compartment of this seven-seater, I see that the driver hasn't stopped the meter and another 20p ticked over. He didn't look happy, handed back three fivers and left in a hurry. I got the last laugh. I live in a gated apartment complex, and in his haste to leave he backed up and twatted the post with the fob reader on it (similar to pic) at some speed, smashing one of his rear windows in the process.

It doesn't really matter whether it's rented or not. Specific types of work, including any electrical work around a bath or shower, need to be professionally certified. If it's not certified properly you're pretty much fucked.

For a DIYer, the process of getting this type of work certified involves notifying the building control authority before you start, and after you finish the work needs to be inspected and testing by a professional.

Certain types of electrical work are fine to do yourself, but it can be a bit of a grey area in rented properties. Having said that, the alleged "professionals" who did up my flat before I moved in, installed a hardwired towel-heater in the bathroom and left a 13A fuse on 3A cable.
