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.

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.

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.

If anybody is having a bad day, don't feel too bad.

Last night I went to the pub to drown my sorrows as I've lost my job.

I woke up late this morning for my last day and rushed out of the house. Fell on some ice and banged my side.

If that wasn't bad enough, I had to then de-ice the car. That finally happened when the car warmed up after about five minutes and I didn't have much fuel but it said that there was 80 miles and work is only 30 away.

I started driving and as soon as I joined the motorway and drove past the service station it started saying there was less than 40, then less than 30 miles left even though it had said 80 just 10 minutes before.

I was trying to drive carefully by not going too fast to save fuel, except that to cure my hangover I drank unholy amounts of water to re-hydrate.

Suddenly the need for a vicious beer shit and a bladder wrenching piss come on and I was stuck between pissing and shitting myself in my car or going faster to get to a toilet but using more fuel and probably running out on the motorway.

I just about made it to a service station and only one cubicle was free, covered in shit, that's why it was free. It didn't matter because I was so desperate and so late for work.

Finally got in, let my arse explode, realised there was no toilet paper.

It's not been a good day.

Nobody says anything negative in references any more, for fear of legal action.

I'm saying that it's pretty hard to actually obtain bad references and 99% of them will just be a default HR template with your manager's signature on. Presuming you were an alright employee the rest of the time you worked there, nobody is going to begrudge you a half-arsed or phoned-in final day.

This is going to be especially true if you were made redundant rather than fired for any sort of misconduct, because if that was the case then you've obviously fucking blown it in terms of references to begin with haven't you.

It isn't any cheaper. Their standard "existing customer deals" thing says that if I want to drop the telly completely, I lose the bundle rate and actually end up paying more.

If you're near the end of your contract or if your contract has lapsed, haggle. Find the best deal from a rival provider and ask them to match it. If you're polite but persistent they'll match any fibre broadband deal, including promotional offers.

Offers from customer service:
- £6 a month off the bill
- £10 a month off the bill
- £10 a month off the bill and a £30 credit

As for matching rates, I quoted their own front page and was flat out refused. Still, a little more generous than what I was expecting from first-line. That suggests that I might be able to double that saving in retentions.

I figure that I should at least make them think I'm going to leave. A couple of people in the know have suggested to me that if you just call straight through to retentions and just demand a discount they'll be a little less generous than if they think you're genuinely going. I also figure that if I've already got some concession out of them my negotiating position is a bit better. I say this as someone who has called retention departments before and had my bluff called on more than one occasion.

I just had my video interview for the civil service fast stream.

One of the few redeeming qualities that I have is my ability to talk convincingly and do well at interviews.


Except that their interview on the computer doesn't even have a person at the other end, it literally just spouts a question and then records you responding to it and speaking for two or three minutes in its entirety.

So basically alls that happened was me trying to not to focus on my ugly mug on the screen and forgetting how to speak and feeling unnatural as I had no visual indicators of whether what I was saying was good.

What a shite system, annoyed that that's it for me now. Who the fuck thinks they're a good idea?

I did practice though lad, and you forget that not everybody is a uni student applying for this, some of us have real experience too.

I admit I part underestimated how weird it is being recorded and not having any communication from the other end, but there's really no way to prepare how to feel natural speaking one way to a video interview.

I normally ace in person interviews yet I've probably lost out because of the format, which is annoying, given that if it had of been the same format as last year and in person I would have at least passed this stage with ease.

What the fuck do you even say to that? I'm not a racist, but I probably sound like one now.

It doesn't bother me in the slightest, so I waffled about how it provides a unique and different perspective for the advantages and for the challenges I said people might not feel as confident with diverse workforces or feel like they can confidently approach the topic.

It feels like a trick question. My manager (an Asian) asked me a similarly tricksy thing. He asked where I was from, and I answered, and he said "Lot of Asians there, you can't get away from us can you?". No answer for that is good. If I say "No I can't" it makes me seem like I'm trying to escape them. If I say "Yes I can" it makes me seem like I'm trying successfully to escape them. If I say "I don't mind" it sounds like half-hearted tolerance. This is why I don't speak to people.

Think about it in terms of skillsets rather than race like IT monkeys working with normal people. Benefits come in bringing different skills and perspectives to a team while challenges can be in communication.

With these questions its best to use an example of a previous case. I'd use my previous experience working with Germans who tend to be quite short and blunt in work communications and hold no concept of -ish but we learnt to understand one another and become a cohesive group after meeting up for social drinks. Problem-Solution.

I've been working from home for the past couple of days but have had to keep the curtains drawn because if I'm sat in my usual position the low sun is more or less directly on me until around 1pm. It's been useful for wanking since discovering the balcony next door can overlook my flat.

Yesterday I got to flirting with my hairdresser for a bit of fun as you do with women in the service industry. As is the normal routine I did really well on account of not really caring.

I got a good natter in with playful teasing and its obvious she fancies me a little. At least that is what I'm choosing to believe with all the playful touching, discount and her doing a really good job with it. The problem is I got carried away and told a few lies to grease the conversation along (lets be honest nobody cares about lying to such people). Only when I left did I realise I can probably never go there again because she will recognize me and continue the web of lies I've made for myself.

I wouldn't have this problem if the bloke who normally cuts my hair was in but I foolishly agreed to have a woman cut my hair despite knowing full well it always ends badly.

Isn't that what hairdressers do? Their main job is to give you a good haircut, chat and make friendlies with you and make you feel at home and give you reason to come back. If that's not the case, my hairdresser has wanted to bang me since I was a very young lad.

If a woman doing her job is flirting with you, she's actually probably not flirting with you, sorry.

My girlfriend works in the restaurant business, manages now but used to wait on tables.

She's quite pretty and likes money and extra tips. She isn't the flirty type, but she would smile and chat with customers and if she could help them out (go on lads, you come in a regularly I'll let you have that half burnt starter for free type thing) and she never stopped coming home mentioning how lads who saw her being nice and doing her job to keep them happy and earn a tip thought that meant she was being nice to them because she wanted to and she fancied them.

It is really quite embarrassing and I've seen it first hand myself.

People in the service industry are nice because they are in the service industry and being nice is what counts, very rarely will they flirt with you whilst working.

Getting a good haircut and chatting with you is the minimum I'd expect from any barber. I'm not saying she wasn't 100% flirting with him, but this is all too common a mistake people make.

My dear friend who is a functioning social alcoholic thinks the woman who sells him his daily bottle of vodka at the Co-Op fancies him because she smiles at him. He's about twice her age, bald and short. He isn't daft and can be completely perceptive in other ways. I think this 'all women fancy me' thing some men have comes from unquenchable and nigh heroic optimism and should be celebrated as long as they do not become a nuisance to the ladies who have to serve them.

It's re-advertised and I figured I'd ring and ask if I was allowed to reapply, even though I never even got a rejection last time.

I had no idea flirting with a hairdresser could get so many peoples backs up. Should I march right back to the shop and collect video footage of an arse pissing or would you rather I instead court her for a number of years so I can post the wedding photos for you lads who assume I'm some kind of sex pest?

Maybe >>24522 is right and I was raped. I was wrapped in one of those apron things when she decided to warm her hands on my ears. Tell me I asked for it, I dare you!

Christ. The point of the story was how even little lies to strangers can come back to bite you.

From experience its more likely they didn't email anyone back than you 'slipped through the cracks'. Who knows though, maybe the guy on the other end doesn't have any clue at all and they just have more vacancies in the same position to fill.

Well I'm not him and maybe its a case of different tastes but I found Crewe a fair enough place when I missed the last train a few years back. If you head a few metres up the road you walk through a typical high street with an unusual concentration of Thai business including the inevitable seedy massage parlours if memory serves me well. Not that I would know anything about that.

That being said, 2 xmas parties ago, one of my more autistic co-workers got so blind drunk he grabbed the tits of this very well endowed girl who also worked with us. Needless to say, we had to keep him away from the bar and not get them to serve any drink. Also, any sort of relationship he had with that girl was smashed to bits and we were also guilty by association - so we became relegated to the loser lunch group table. Thanks Zak.

It's potentially an offence under Section 5 of the Public Order Act:

(1)A person is guilty of an offence if he—

(a)uses threatening or abusive words or behaviour, or disorderly behaviour, or

(b)displays any writing, sign or other visible representation which is threatening or abusive,

within the hearing or sight of a person likely to be caused harassment, alarm or distress thereby.

(2)An offence under this section may be committed in a public or a private place, except that no offence is committed where the words or behaviour are used, or the writing, sign or other visible representation is displayed, by a person inside a dwelling and the other person is also inside that or another dwelling.

(3)It is a defence for the accused to prove—

(a)that he had no reason to believe that there was any person within hearing or sight who was likely to be caused harassment, alarm or distress, or

(b)that he was inside a dwelling and had no reason to believe that the words or behaviour used, or the writing, sign or other visible representation displayed, would be heard or seen by a person outside that or any other dwelling, or

(c)that his conduct was reasonable.

Two (interrelated) /101/s.

1) My landlord is a scab who for some reason chose to burden us with TalkTalk as an ISP. As such (probably something to do with the thing about TalkTalk routers being hijacked for a botnet) my internet's been barely usable for the last week or two.

2) I came across a 'physical' PC copy of Fallout 4 on Amazon for about £12 which I ordered in time for my day off today, thinking I wouldn't need serviceable internet to play it. My ignorance of contemporary PC gaming meant I was surprised to find the disc didn't contain the full game. I'm not sure what I was expecting (either for it to be a really small game or to be contained across multiple discs?) but it turns out I have to download over 24gb of files on Steam if I want to actually play it. So now I have more junk to fill my room with, but nothing to play.

< This.

In a way I like the openness with which someone out walking in the country side can cheerfully say hello to anyone they pass, compared to a city where you just ignore everyone, but still, I'm out in the country to get away from people. I don't want to have the awkwardness of seeing someone approaching, wondering "are they the type of people who will say morning or just walk past", getting neck-and-neck with them just as they say hello, then responding to them just a little to late, half-coughing and half saying morning by the time they're already behind me.

Also, is it socially acceptable for me to pet someone elses dog if it walks up to me?

Why can't you say hello to people you freak? It's a few words, not giving you their life story. If you see someone, don't stare as they approach, smile if you catch their eye, and greet them if they do so to you, even if they are behind you, because they will think less of you for ignoring them over responding a bit late. Simple as that.

As for dogs, yeah it is, but you might want to glance at the owner first to make sure they aren't violent chavscum that might take affront at this. But probably unlikely in the countryside.

Why? I have hundreds of contacts on my phone, and it never bothers me because a) modern phones have more than 1kB of memory and b) I don't scroll through the names in series, I type in someone's name or select from recent chats.

If for some reason you are still using a Nokia 3310 and can't handle more than the number of contacts you can store on your SIM then I recommend you clear out your unused contacts yourself rather than expecting everyone else to pander to your attention seeking.

Lads for work today I had to be in London and I sat on a bench looking at the river looking at some notes.

These two young girls with one of them big black cameras stood across from me and one of them looked sheepish and the other I could see was pointing it at me.

I looked up and she moved it a bit but then still seemed to take a photo anyway. I just sort of looked and she waved and smiled and then they walked away.

What did they mean by this? They didn't even seem bothered and she just smiled and waved at me.

It annoyed me that some randomers were taking photos of me but I didn't want to look a tool chasing down two girls saying they've taken a photo of me without definite proof.

It annoys me how this weird stuff always happens to me.

As a film photographer I can honestly say that I hate most street photography. Partly because it's tough as fuck, and partly because you can really upset people these days by snapping their photo.

There was a golden-age about 30-50 years ago where it was uncommon for someone to just wander about and take snaps of random shite on the street.

As >>24661 points out, Bresson was the god of street photography, and he captured moments on a very difficult medium, on a camera that had none of the aids that modern cameras have today. Garry Winogrand was also a superb street photographer capturing moments like no other.

As you might have not been aware of what happened to you, but rest assured there were probably no nefarious motives behind it. You just have to deal with the fact that people may take pictures of you, if they were aggressive/intrusive, then you might have a case, otherwise I wouldn't give a shit.

Just been ID'd to buy two scratch cards, even though the age for them is 16. I'm just shy of 23.

For the record, I can't remember the last time I got asked for ID for anything, nevermind a scratch card, so I did feel a bit awkward holding everybody up routing through my wallet for my licence. The fact that you can't get a provisional until you're 17 didn't seem to deter the woman rigorously inspecting my driving licence either (which funnily enough, looks fuck all like me now, so is a terrible way of checking proof of who I am).

I never was arsed when people used to ask me for it all the time, but I have to say I'm strangely offended that she couldn't feel confident in asserting that I'd definitely left year 10.

I realise if I go to a Hungry Horse pub it's going to be expected that some parents will treat it like a crèche but today well and truly took the piss. A man took his five kids and proceeded to sit there and drink at least four pints (no food was ordered for him or the children) whilst he left them to it. They barricaded themselves in the kids area (a bunch of amusement machines rather than a play area) before climbing on top of the machines and violently rocking them, telling other kids they weren't allowed to come in and shaking the machines with prizes in to try and get them to fall out. I know it's been a wet and windy day, but if you want to let your kids burn off some energy don't take them to a pub.

28 here. I've begun to get annoyed when I'm not asked for ID even when I shave the beard off when I enter clubs with my friends who range between 21 to 25. All of which get id'd.

The days when I hid a baby face under this beard is sadly over. Turns out there's an old bastard hiding underneath it now. A fat old bastard who no longer has the metabolism. I just know the bouncer is wondering why he let in the aging has-been in his establishment where the 18 year olds go.

Reminds me of Greg Davies who said once you turn 30 you don't get a nightclub pamphlet when you walk past a promoter.

The civil service appear to be absolutely useless lads.

I've made it through to the assessment centre for the fast stream and I need to log in to a special website that they've given me a username and password for.

It doesn't fucking work and I keep ringing them and they say 'we've reset the password,try now' and it doesn't fucking work. The worst part is the people on the phone are lovely so I can't get mad at them, but when I explain I've tried it they just say it's fine on their end, even though I've tried it on several different things.

I've tried recovering the password by entering my email address but that doesn't work either.

Are they always this fucking bad? It's genuinely putting me off working for them.

It's like a dream job but their internal processes seem to be absolutely abysmal, the website also looks like it just crawled out of 1995 too.

It's a stable and generic career path for graduates. I've gone for (and failed at) the generalist and diplomatic fast streams two years in a row. It's one of those things you really do need to study for, the aptitude tests are tricky and designed to weed out half-arsers.

Perhaps I didn't approach my application with enough conviction as a) I'm already in another fairly rewarding career path and b) my political views wouldn't always gel well if I were suddenly put on placement in the MOD.

EA's download client, Origin, has recieved a terrible facelift since I last used it a few months back. It used to look like a slightly less intuitive Steam, which was fine, but no it has this great big side bar you can't get rid of. It's not 1997, this isn't some new fangled concept, just stop cocking up your UI. It seems like a minor thing, but Origin now looks like it was redesigned for a world where 3400x1360 is the average screen resolution. I only even use Origin for a single game, but dodgy UIs are something that really winds me up.

The NHS released a new quiz you can do to tell you how healthy you are and provide tips on improving things. Worth a look:
https://www.nhs.uk/oneyou/hay

Of course this is /101/ so things go rapidly south when it indirectly asks you to tell it your insecurities regarding health. I put being able to fit in all my clothes for one which lead to the quiz calling me a fat bastard in a patronizing tone every time I didn't get a perfect score.

This particularly got on my tits when it called me fat for not doing enough strength exercise despite doing aerobic exercise for 2 hours 5 times a week. Giving me advice in this fashion doesn't make me want to get fitter, it makes me want to lamp someone. I'm going for a fag in an act of defiance.

I was waiting in the passenger seat of a carpark whilst my gf run inside to get something from the shop.

Some woman driving on a phone pulls up right next to me, not realising I was in the car and opened her car door (not in a 'accidentally swung too far, my bad' way, but in a it made a huge thud and she didn't even seem to care way) so I opened the door and asked her what she thought she was doing and that she should be more careful.

Her saying 'sorry, I didn't mean to' would probably have been enough, but instead she took it upon herself to have some sort of meltdown in the carpark by first claiming she didn't hit it, then when I insisted she did, she said her finger was there (couldn't have been as she had the phone in her hand to her ear), then she said it was because she was on the phone (as if that made it okay), and finally said it was because she was making an urgent appointment at A and E despite the fact that you don't make appointments at A and E and if you actually need to be there you don't go shopping first.

She stormed off in a hugg, then cme back out whilst I was talking to my girlfriend and starting randomly shouting again, literally at the top of her lungs about how she didn't hit it and I asked her to calm down and she got in her car, then opened the door AGAIN, and started screaming about how she'd had a big operation, reversed out of her space, started screaming inside her car (with her window up so we couldn't hear) and then drove off.

Probably one of the most bizarre things to happen to me recently, I've never met somebody so unhinged. She literally just lost it, when all she needed to do was say sorry.

/101/ing the selfish cunts of society who don't respect other people's property and when they get caught being a cunt try lying despite the fact that they've been caught red handed, before shouting like a lunatic and blaming it on a made up need to be at A and E as if having health problems (which everybody gets at some point) was a valid excuse for being a cunt and twatting people's cars.

Not him, but when I do a post on here (or on 420chan when I used to post there. I only ever lurked on the other place and that was 10 years ago) and it gets a good response, it does make me feel kind of proud. Not the pride you get from accomplishing something, or the kind you get when you've earned a wage and you're buying things with your own money; it's not linked to success, but it's not quite linked to verification either. I think it just scratches a deep seated desire I have to be amusing, and I know why I do this - it's developed from childhood encounters that made me mistrusting of others, whilst simultaneously harbouring a need to make people laugh. It's a bit of a conflict, so an anonymous imageboard threatening practically no repercussions is a good place for someone like me to scratch my itch.

I also tend to buy into subcultures pretty hard. When I went on raids 10 years ago, anyone who would break rules 1 & 2 would make me, uh, facepalm. In real life you'd maybe even think I wasn't into this kind of internet use, because I just don't mention these things. In fact, memes rarely do anything but disappoint me or make me cringe these days. I always thought the point was to create OC and share it with others on here, which is why I still think meme repost groups are kind of lame.

Imageboards offer a platform for you to tell stories, jokes, pranks, trolling, whatever, in a different format to other forms of media, with an instant audience. Obviously though, it's anonymous, so any merit you receive is completely private. So really, I suppose it does comes down to validation.

But what about cyclists? Not are they nonces, but are they supposed to stop at lights? I already know they are, so to the big, bald, fuck I shouted "oi, lights!" at today and was subsequently told to "*muffled* off" by, eat my dick, bitch tits.

And I'm not someone who cries and moans about cyclists on the regular, because I usually am one, and I know for a fact this particular junction is time consuming, but perfectly safe. Something bombing across it while a load of kids are pouring out of a nearby school isn't.

Consider it a rite of passage. If you ride long enough, you're bound to drop a bike at some point. If you're lucky, you drop an unfaired bike when no-one's looking.

Steel, mostly. There are a lot of sticky-outy bits on the sides that tend to fall off when you drop a bike - mirrors, brake/clutch levers, footpegs, indicators etc. Sportsbikes also have a big plastic cover to make the front end more aerodynamic; these covers are made out of a similar plastic to car bumpers, so they're tough but not indestructible. Dropping a bike tends to do superficial but ugly damage to a bike.

The real problem is often picking the fucker back up. A light sportsbike weighs about 25 stone and a big Harley-style cruiser can weigh as much as 70 stone. There's a special technique that involves shoving the bike with your arse - it looks ridiculous, but it's often the only way to get the bike back on its wheels.

This is the main story on the Guardian:

Hard Brexit means retiring later, Britons warned

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/jan/15/hard-brexit-means-retiring-later-britons-warned

But then you actually delve into the article and the entire basis of the research is pure fantasy...

In the modelling, Harper’s team predicted that if migration were stopped, it would have a serious impact on workers, necessitating “far longer working lives”.

“However, if all migration into the UK was to be halted, then over the next five years, those coming up to retirement would have to work about one-and-a-half years longer just in order to maintain current output [of GDP]. Indeed, any significant reduction in labour immigration would wipe out the projected benefits to GDP of small delays in retirement, or require far longer working lives.”


Net migration isn't going to reduce to zero. Not even UKIP are advocating no immigration whatsoever.

It's absolute nonsense; there's going to be enough downsides to Brexit without having to make a load of shite up. The primary business model at the Guardian at the moment seems to be to shoehorn Brexit into absolutely everything in order to generate revenue from all the furious comments they've managed to stir up; the one in question had over 2,000 before they switched it off. I also seem to recall there being over 5,000 comments BTL about Brexit on Christmas Day after they'd stirred up a few things to argue about, they can't give it a rest for even one day. The majority aren't even insightful, they're simply "Brextard" or "Remainiac" spammed ad nauseum.

I already worry about the mental health of Guardian readers as it is, as the paper is mean world syndrome personified, but they're making it much worse through active incitement and whipping up tension, with all the bile that follows, all for the sake of increasing the number of hits to their website.

Wave 1 of ad impressions: Guardian-reading remainers clicking on the article because it vindicates their beliefs
Wave 2: remainers sharing on Facebook
Wave 3: brexiters rageclicking, resharing on their Facebook
Wave 4 to ∞: endless bickering in the comments section

The article will have cost the Guardian almost nothing to publish, because it's basically a paraphrased press release from the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing. I'd be astonished if it took more than one person-day, so about £200 tops. It already has nearly 2500 comments, which implies 300,000 to 500,000 page views. Based on The Guardian's rate card, that's at least £30,000 in ad revenue. Not a bad day in the office, by any means.

Why not make that the focal point of the article instead of a ludicrous model based on zero immigration? It's clear the whole thing is designed for clickbait and creating the most sensationalist headline possible.

I didn't see a link to the study in the article, so I'm unsure what their definition of a "significant" reduction in immigration is nor whether they've treated immigrants as a homogeneous blob where a doctor and a takeaway delivery driver have the same economic value.

Something else that bugs me about the wider narrative of migration is that its sold as a solution to an ageing population. The problem with this solution being that the migration numbers are frankly impossible to perform, to quote the United Nations population division 2000 report:

>In contrast to the migration streams needed to offset total or working-age population decline, the levels of migration that would be needed to prevent the countries from ageing are of substantially larger magnitudes. By 2050, these larger migration flows would result in populations where the proportion of post-1995 migrants and their descendants would range between 59 per cent and 99 per cent.* Such high levels of migration have not been observed in the past for any of these countries or regions. Moreover, it seems extremely unlikely that such flows could happen in these countries in the foreseeable future. Therefore, it appears inevitable that the populations of the low-fertility countries will age rapidly in the twenty-first century.

http://www.un.org/esa/population/publications/ReplMigED/chap5-Concl.pdf
http://www.un.org/esa/population/publications/migration/migration.htm

The result is if you're wondering that we will soon be retiring at 75 but its not very fun to think about so we have this weird worst-of-both-worlds solution where a declining population results in arguments for more migration while the actual challenges we're facing are rarely discussed. Now to return to the Guardian who provides another false solution:

>Europe needs many more babies to avert a population disaster
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/aug/23/baby-crisis-europe-brink-depopulation-disaster

If we went out on a mass shagging spree it really wouldn't solve our immediate problem as babies don't work (maybe we could change this?) and while not as burdensome as the elderly they still require substantial support which will only increase with benefits to encourage people to have children. Migrants aren't cheap either beyond the top percentage of high-skilled workers, they require substantial investments to be made in infrastructure and services while the ones who are now walking over also require support to integrate and are both moved to the wrong areas (because its cheaper to house them in shit areas) and lack the right skills to thrive in a post-industrial economy.

>>24802
>Net migration isn't going to reduce to zero. Not even UKIP are advocating no immigration whatsoever.

I believe if you read between the lines we are looking at a situation where if migration from the EU is cut we will have to look elsewhere i.e. Brexit simply won't matter for immigration and in truth it never did. Yes the Guardian will spin this on their own Bizzaro-Daily Mail political views but really certain industries are hooked on exploiting foreign labour just as the NHS is hooked on pilfering the third world of nurses who will pull the levers in government.

Yes we might soon have more control over our borders but it simply doesn't matter. At best Brexit has meant Dindus and Hindus instead of Poles and Romanians.

Of all my add ons for firefox maybe 20% have survived the last year of updates.

Recently WOT has been disabled for security reasons. I refuse to go back to McAffee's safesearch. Youtube Centre has pretty much died to the point where I no longer watch youtube videos on my desktop. AdBlock Plus has had a bit of a downward spiral and no longer works as well as it should. I'll probably move to chrome once my classic theme add on is no longer supported. The browser itself is pretty damn slow nowadays.

Of my own /101/ it seems to be electronics and appliances that seem to die at times when I'm skint. At the moment my TV has a poorly power board and I cannot afford a new telly at the moment. This comes at a time when I got myself a PS4 at Christmas and it's doing a remarkable job helping me cut down on cigarettes. Looks like the money I'm saving from less smoking will go towards a new telly. Was hoping to put that cash away for something a little more long term.

Haven't used WOT in years. It's a nice idea but I got fed up of the false positives and it didn't really achieve much beyond basic common sense can do (read: don't follow web addresses from random *chan posts and you'll be'rite).

As for ABP, I switched to uBlock Origin after its recent downward spiral. It's much better overall, can be a bit over-eager to block certain web pages but it's easy to disable temporarily or add exceptions.

I think at this stage the main reason I continue to use Firefox is sheer momentum and being used to the add-ons I use regularly. But I've no real reason to switch, I've nothing in particular against Google but I see no reason not to use open-source when it delivers comparable or better function.

WOT is nice to have when you're googling for something and you're on sites that are unfamiliar with. So for example with my telly slowly dying I needed to troubleshoot it which ended up me going to forums where people post all day about repairing tellys. Sites which I wasn't familar with as I have never really looked up how to fix a TV. But honestly it's not a big loss, I'd just like an extra layer of security even if it's a thin one at that. Thought it was a bit funny that a security add on had a remote code execution vulnerability all along even if I have had used it for years

Switching to ublock has been on my to do list for ages. Might do it now so I don't forget until it's brought u again.

The only reason I'm sticking with firefox at this point is because I'm used to it and it's a ballache transitioning to another browser. I can see why my parents still insist on using IE, it's not something that can be done with a simple download. I even have chrome installed, it's just not the browser I use.

I'm assuming it's the top one that has been recently added and you think is redundant? Because of the others one is in Braille, and one provides a visual aid and is also in Welsh, so there's no problem in making the door more accessible.

The impression I get from people with visual impairments is that those Braille signs are usually worse than useless. For example, it looks like this one suffers from the all too common problems of being at the wrong height and being beyond the thing they're describing.

Also, braille signs are effectively invisible to blind people if there's not a tactile indicator on the floor. Blind people don't go around fondling the walls on the off chance of finding some braille.

The sign that doesn't have braille is the only one with a high-contrast border, so it's the only sign that a visually impaired person would have any hope of identifying from a distance.

Sticking braille on things makes sighted people feel better, but it's rarely useful to blind and visually impaired people. I often see braille signs in buildings that have really serious accessibility deficiencies - no tactile marking or tread nosing on staircases, no handrail markers, busy patterns on carpets, low-contrast signage, poor lighting and so on.

There does seem to be this trend recently of noticing that disabled people exist and doing things like putting up Braille, obtaining induction loops and the like. "Hey, look at us, we're so right-on, we've got a lift next to the steps at the front door!" Then you notice that the Braille signs have spelling mistakes and aren't anywhere a VI person is likely to find them anyway, none of the staff realise that the induction loop is a physical thing they have to put on the desk in front of them and turn on, and the only thing the lift gives access to is effectively a raised platform with steps on all sides. Then you go into the toilet where they've tried to be considerate by allowing space on both sides of the bowl, without thinking about where the paper dispenser's going to end up.

I once remember seeing an accessible toilet on a corridor with steps at either end. I'm not sure which was worse, that it looked like a ham-fisted allowance for disability, or that it was actually a ham-fisted allowance for a trans person.

If only organisations could divert some of the effort they put into signalling how much they care about accessibility into actual accessibility.

I've been on 60mg of dihydrocodiene, x2 4 times a day, for about 2 years. You need to get Lactulose from the pharmacy, take 20 ml morning and night and you'll be fine.

People are going crazy about the fact that three cyclists have died in London in a week. Apparently things must be awful because three in a week, innit. Poisson processes are seemingly beyond their grasp. According to Beyond The Kerb there were ten fatalities in London in 2016, of which seven involved motor vehicles (two heart attacks and one fall), though one more hit a tree on the bit of RideLondon in Surrey. The number is small enough to be highly variable, but the general trend is undoubtedly downward when you account for the increased numbers of cyclists. But no, apparently this week proves it's carnage out there.
