I hope you're aware that Westwood Studios programmed their difficulty levels based on decades of psychology dissertations, psychiatric studies, and years of research,so that the AI would perform the appropriate strategies required for that level. It's a microcosm of class, IQ, social status, and genital size. Not being able to perform on the 'normal' setting means that you really aren't normal. It means that you're constantly paying interest on payday loans, that you likely have twelve fingers, but can't use any of them to bring someone to orgasm, that you complain about the weather because your default means of communication is to describe what you're experiencing and then hope that everyone else saw what you just saw and will agree, to confirm whether or not you're hallucinating, and that you put strawberry bonbons down your dickhole.

If your drive is blocked call the police (appropriately enough on 101) or the council and they may be able to remove the obstruction. Historically, a car blocked in the drive was a higher priority than an empty drive, but these days in many places the council is now in charge, and they tend to care even less than the police.

Council won't give a shit, and I doubt they would send someone around. I doubt the police would come around too. Maybe both of them would come around a week later and ask what all the fuss was about. In the mean time, the drive blocking cunt won't get what's coming to him.

This just strengthens my belief that all citizens must be armed. People would be more respectful if they know that they can't get away with being cunts. I'm not saying shoot them, but challenge them to a duel at noon or something.

When it comes to money-grubbing, council parking enforcement people put letting agents to shame. Drop a fiver in their offices and they'll pocket it and charge you an admin fee. To justify their continued existence, they need to keep the numbers up, and if you report a blocked drive you hand them a free tow and an easy £300 from the twat who parked across your drive.

Every radio station is horrendous. At my work near Liverpool we have to listen to Radio City or Radio City 2. The former plays the same five tired pop songs on repeat, and the latter is an unending nostalgia trip for the baby boomers that are too stupid to work out how to listen to music online. Both of these shitty playlists are interspersed with poor quality advertisements.

This.

You lads ever have it where just as you get comfortable in bed ready to sleep its then that you realise you have to pee. So you have to spend a minute or two mentally psyching up yourself to get out of the bedsheet cocoon you've made and walk into the cold bathroom otherwise the fear is you will piss the bed?

I know its disgusting but I've had this happen to me 3 times this week and frankly I'm wondering if I should just invest in a piss bottle.

This is a near daily occurrence once you get past a certain age. I have a feeling it's something to do with lying down making gravity slosh your pee around inside your bladder bag and only then informing your brain that you need to go weewee.

In other news, I feel a stabbing pain in my heart every time I remember the recent news regarding what.cd. The internet music community has truly lost something so singular and unequaled that I feel we probably won't see its like again.

Unfortunately I've been cursed with the need to drive for a job over the past year. I passed my test ages ago but only over the last 12 or so months have I had to drive regularly and I can't stand it.

Is it just me or is the testing not stringent enough?

The road is populated with morons. Today I had somebody beeping and gesticulating furiously because even though the light was green, I stayed at the lights because going forward would have made me join a queue which would then block an adjacent junction when the lights changed.

They couldn't seem to grasp that I wasn't sitting at a green light for fun and that I wasn't going to be one of those idiots who block another junction to get one set of traffic lights ahead, even though it would've caused more traffic. They then had the cheek to stare at me as they drove past later down the road as if I was the idiot!

On that note, why do so many people seem unable to comprehend that if the light is on green, but there's no space to go/ you'll block another junction and cause more traffic, you DO NOT have to go? Half of the time I spend driving home from work is waiting for traffic that could easily be avoided to clear.
It honestly drives me mad, I've also had somebody fly out from across the road as I was turning left and they were making a right turn. As they blocked the road I stopped to let them go (they shouldn't have shot out and panicked, but it's fine, we all misjudge some situations), and the car behind on the main road, seeing me having to wait stationary for the other car to go, slammed on last minute and started beeping. I asked him to pull down his window and he seemed to think that because he was on the main road and I was half way out he was entitled to carry on going full speed and I had to somehow get out of his way.

I appreciate this is coming off as a bit of a rant but I cannot fathom how these people function, the roads are full of absolute morons who I'm not convinced have done enough learning before being given a licence.

As a dad myself I'd recommend books or clothes, something that's both generically useful but allows you some kind of freedom of expression to show that you tried to buy something to match the kid's personality or likes.

> There was never any mention of penetration, the phone was simply resting on her bits and set to vibrate.

It's amazing how we all remember this differently. Maybe we're all suffering from PTSD still after all these years and have blocked different bits out. I don't remember anything about the phone being set to vibrate, but I do remember him specially making the noise "boop boop" as he prodded the external genitalia with said phone.

It just really fucks me off, being a cunt I don't mind, but being a dumb cunt really winds me up.

The same people complaining behind me for not blocking a junction will be the same arseholes complaining at the next one that somebody is blocking them.

There's honestly a special place in hell for shit drivers, and that includes those fucking middle aged women who buy near-army jeep 4x4s to drive around in even though they live in suburbia. I could live with it if they didn't struggle to park the fuckers or have any spatial awareness.

There was no vibration. I certainly don't remember any BOOP BOOP as he did it. All I can recall is that he rubbed his iPhone on his daughter's fanny in front of other people because he thought it'd be a hilarious joke.

Today I had a bloke blare his horn at me for about five seconds solid in the car park when I nearly reversed out in front of him. I bet he was screaming and cursing at the blind bastard just reversing straight out without a care in the world.

Except-

He was the knobhead going the wrong way down a clearly marked one way system, in the pitch black and pouring rain, at what must have been about 40 fucking miles an hour. Out of the two of us, I really don't think I was the driver causing a hazard in that instance.

It's also an age thing. When younger, I got a lot more wound up about poor driving and cunts on the road. Now I tend to take it all a bit easier, drive a bit safer and just ignore the cunts and try not to give anywhere near as much of a fuck if someone else drives like a nonce.

Motorbike riding for a few years also helps, everyone is a cunt to you when you're on a bike; breeds a special kind of patience.

Or you could say that it provides them with food and a roof over their head, so that they can then practice their art. I don't buy the argument, at all, that an artists integrity is compromised because they earn some money or were paid by the minute or word.

This does destroy my argument though -

You don't buy the argument because you fail basic comprehension.

I am saying the method in which their art is measured influnces what they produce, not that it is bad to pay artists. if you pay people by the minuite expect padded out drivel. There is no argument to be had, youtube started paying people by the minuite and the videos all got longer. If you pay them by the click expect nothing but a provcative title (like buzz feed). The metric that you pay people by informs how they will behave and who will be sucessful in that enviroment. This is economics 101.

The CCTV footage of the bellend who killed Joe Cox had a big blue triangle edited over his head that made him look like the world's shittest FIFA player.

I feel dirty enough for a shower, but I'm going for a run in the morning so it's not really worth it.

Also the titles for the Premiere League Show are proper daft.

I mean this is a job for fucking /uhu/ will you take a look at that bow on the bottom shelf. The man pretends he is part of the master race and has all the books but who puts a bookshelf up like that?

He seems to have quite an unhealthy obsession with uniforms and medals. Anyone able to crack what kind of filing method he has used for his 'library'? Its certainly not alphabetical.

Saying that its probably a flaw of our society how we judge people based on their bookshelf. Following on from >>24407 it could just as well be that some well-meaning relative never knew what to get him for Christmas.

They're organised by size and series. Sensibly on the middle shelf he's put the bigger books at the edges which is both a pleasant aesthetic choice and prevents it bucking even further. I do something similar although my shelves being regular sizes I can keep the heavier books at the bottom.

People who complain about graphs that don't start at zero. Apparently people can't read and all graphs have the same context. The possibility that someone might want to focus in on part of a range or emphasise relative differences eludes them.

Depends on the graph, I've seen it used to obfuscate the reality a lot in my work, and push a paticular interperetation. By making a change look either dramatic or insignificant, or by cutting off some key detail that happened just before or after the graph.

The general public are appallingly bad at interpreting data; clinicians are scarcely better. The whole point of a chart is to make data more comprehensible. If it doesn't achieve that, then it's worse than a blank space.

This issue is made alarmingly clear if you ever have to do user testing on documentation. Readers aren't necessarily stupid, but they are lazy and inattentive. The vast majority of documents are skimmed rather than read. Copy and graphics that seem perfectly clear often achieve <30% comprehension amongst a degree-educated cohort. If a document seems insultingly simple, it's still probably not simple enough. A chart that requires close inspection to understand is either meaningless or deceptive.

The thing I find most amusing about this whole affair is that if you've ever been to Batley, a statement like "the immigrants made him do it" doesn't sound facetious, it sounds so obvious that it needn't even be stated.

(Obvious as in, I'm surprised something like this didn't happen sooner in a place like that; not obvious as in his actions were justified; although the implications are similar I suppose)

I think the last time Batley was in the news before this assassination was when people were scrapping in the Tesco on Black Friday over Polaroid/Blaupunkt TVs.

Last time I was in Batley, it seemed to be a perfectly pleasant (albeit slightly shabby) Pennine town. What did I fail to see?

Fuck sake. I've reached four Champions League finals on FM16 and lost three of them because of own goals, two of them by the same bloody bloke.
