The old thread is well over 30MB, so I think we're due a new one.

Some cunt threw a firecracker in front of my bike today. If I hadn't seen the little scrote and his little scrote mates running I wouldn't have noticed until it was too late.

Similarly some bloke let his hand drag over my leg as they were getting off the bus yesterday, and then grinned at me through the window as it pulled away. Dunno what the fuck he was playing at.

What pisses me off more than that though is being unable to find the Smokester in your image.

Police helicopters or maybe I should hate the cunts that cause them to be used.

No idea what's happened as of late but the neighbouring areas seem to draw out a police helicopter which then circles for around 10-20 minutes, atleast once a week and it's always when I'm trying to watch a show. It's not cold enough to shut my windows but fuck this fucking noise interrupting my watching comfort and enjoyment.

Got on the phone to Virgin retentions, with a few days left before the cut-off. Before giving the go-ahead, I confirmed no fewer than three times the package and the price that we'd agreed. Now the receipt has come through and the price is higher than the one agreed.

I think I'm mainly nice to people out of pure anger and spite at existence.

It's easy to be a cunt but to really try and be a decent human being in the face of an uncaring universe and planet full of suffering and arseholes I think is the only truly rebellious thing you can do.

Plus it generally makes life a little bit easier I think.

The green ones aren't ripe, so they are different. No natural sugars, bland and not sweet at all.

It takes like 2 or 3 weeks via that method, by which time it is likely to have begun to decompose. I'm sure there will be a quicker way. Heat is the key.

Put it in a paper bag with a ripe tomato or banana. Keep it in a cupboard, not the fridge. The ethylene produced by the ripe fruit will accelerate the ripening of the pepper.

For weeks now my phone has been pissing me off when I exercise it will either
a) Stop playing music inexplicitly
b) Randomly the speak and search function will fire up and interrupt my music
c) The music will inexplicitly turn down to silent
d) The track will inexplicitly skip to the next one
e) It will fall out of my pocket
f) The head phone wire will get caught in the cardio machine

At least one of these events happens every 4 mins or so. Finally today I got so pissed off with it I ended up bending it and cracking the screen beyond use. Now I'm even more pissed off with it and I have no money for a new one. I fucking hate it when technology doesn't do the task it is supposed to do. It angers me to a evidently violent level.

You probably aren't wrong but it is localized to the very narrow band of malfunctioning technology, I'm not sure it would be worth the time and effort required to solve.

I treat it more cynically then that, things only need to work well enough for people to feel they work. Portable CD players for example were in practical application worse than tape players. But they they seems to work for long enough that no one cried afoul of the second you try use them for, say a jog they they were useless and a step backwards. As long as they worked in 'common usage' none of the manufactures seemed to care that they failed. I'd imagine if you took the thing back to the shop and said 'this piece of shit doesn't work when you go for a jog', they would have just shrug their shoulders and say 'well what do you expect', somehow we have come to accept holding technology to a lower expectation than we should. Convenience devices at their best should feel near invisible.

This is a Sound Devices 664 field mixer. It's pretty much the gold standard device for location sound recording in the film and TV industry. It'll survive a drop from a second-floor window and keep recording on the way down. It costs £5,328.

You can buy something more-or-less functionally equivalent from Zoom or Tascam for about £300. It'll be a plasticky bit of tat, it'll be fiddly to use, it won't sound quite as good, but it'll get the job done 90% of the time. If you need to get the job done 100% of the time, then you'll need to spend five grand more.

It's easy to forget that the first Walkman cost £600 in today's money, that a Betamax video recorder in the early 80s would cost you the equivalent of £2,000. Those 70s and 80s Sony machines were beautifully built, but they cost a cock and a bollock. The market has consistently offered us the choice between higher quality or lower prices; we've chosen lower prices every time.

>>25874 Manufacturing (and designing) stuff was a lot harder back then. Well, maybe not harder, but certainly more time intensive, and I suspect it's those man hours you're partly seeing reflected in the cost. Design tools now mean that I can knock out something of the electronic complexity of a walkman in a week and expect it to work. Mechanical design has had a similar boost in design tools.
Maybe I'm just cranky about shit user interfaces.

A lot of complexity has shifted from hardware to software. What used to require a board full of discrete logic or some clever electromechanical gubbins can now be done with a cheap microcontroller.

That transition is great for cost, but generally bad for reliability and usability - we've moved hard problems from the very well-understood domain of mechanical engineering to the very poorly-understood domain of software. My washing machine occasionally crashes and needs to be rebooted, which is a bit bonkers.

With that said, there's just been a raft of cost-cutting in consumer products. It really is true that they don't make 'em like they used to. Before CAD/CAM came in, a lot of stuff was substantially over-engineered, because it was really difficult to predict its working lifespan. FEA and other analytical tools allows engineers to use the absolute minimum amount of material and the cheapest possible construction techniques, which is why stuff tends to break two weeks after the warranty expires. Colin Chapman was fond of saying that the ideal racing car would completely disintegrate the moment it crossed the finish line; engineers of consumer hardware have got very close to that ideal.

It actually goes much deeper than that. Our economy is built on the need for things to be replaced. The great depresion was caused fundementally by the fact no one was buying anything new because why would you when the thing you have works perfectly fine, so there wasn't enough demand so factories would shut down.

So after world war 2 it was quite deliberately agreed that products would be built with shelf lifes and to fashions (read; percived obsoletion), not as a company branding but as a deliberate political economic decision to make sure people bought new things to keep everyone working, our economy is built on busy time. As a really obvious example Lightbulbs used to be built in a way that they would and have lasted over 100 years, now you'll be lucky if they last a 1000 hours.

This cabal of all manufacturers, are you really sure? Every last one? I never got the letter.
Decent LED bulbs should go pretty much forever (or until a serious mains spike comes along). The filament-looking ones have no over-stressed hot-running silicon. I like them.

There was a cartel of lightbulb manufacturers, but their agreement reduced the lifespan of bulbs from 2000 hours to 1000 hours. It incorporated all of the world's significant light bulb manufacturers, but collapsed in 1939.

LED bulbs should have a lifespan of ~25,000 hours, but that lifespan only really applies to bulbs from top-tier manufacturers like Philips and Osram. The cheap off-brand bulbs you find in most supermarkets and DIY shops are shoddily built with substandard components and will have a fraction of that lifespan, especially in an enclosed luminaire. The cheap bulbs are a ludicrous false economy, but most consumers don't know any better.

I'm not entirely sure. It's not to do with their sexuality.

At a guess, I'm being overly judgemental and think they need to "grow up" a bit. Their faces have too much age in them to pull off the look they're aiming for but I'm not sure how far I'm judging them; they're still quite immature and directionless so I don't know if the shitty emo-kid hair is what I see as a manifestation and reminder of this.

First they came for 'literally'.
I keep seeing (what are almost certainly septics) misusing the word 'fictional'. As in:
>Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is a fictional book.
No. No it is not. It is a work of fiction, it is not fictional as it demonstrably exists. For it to be fictional it would have to not exist. The Encyclopaedia Galactica is a fictional book, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is not fictional but fiction. The latter is fiction, the former a fiction.

Stir newspapers into it so it's just a heavy mush, but won't slosh? The instructions here say to wrap kitchen waste in newsaper.
The kid who used to cut my grass had a habit of sitting on my bin lid, so it went <spoing> and turned inside out, letting rain into the bin. They still collected my sloshing bin, bless'em.

Arbitrary recycling instructions are 101-worthy. Moved to a new house, green bins had labels on saying no glass, very little plastic, and the usual doom-laden warnings about refusing to collect if we got it wrong. A few weeks later, got a letter saying glass and most plastics were fine, and the same doom-laden warnings if we got it wrong. Fuck'em.

Nobody uses the food bin for its intended purpose m8. Not in this country. Mine is sitting in the pantry filled with dog biscuit because it is quite convenient to just scoop the stuff into his bowl from it.

Simply put food in with general waste and nobody kicks up a fuss. I think that is what your binmen are telling you to start doing because they can't be arsed with it either.

Overly friendly shopkeepers. You' know the situations where you just want to complete the transaction and leave but as this is their hobby (I decided to start vaping on my road to quitting) they have to talk your ear off and do that little laugh after every sentence.

I mean fair play for the enthusiasm, I could never do sales, but fuck me I was already struggling to maintain my facade of normality after bumping into my ex and her new girlfriend. Then there was the fact that the place was full of fruity smoke but some samples of the working class were sitting in there chatting away with a baby in the pram to agitate me.

Probably one for the vape thread wherever that is, but what is this trend for higher and higher wattages on vapes these days? It's been a few years since I had one of my own but back then the coils were >1ohm in most cases and you were looking at 30-50W max for most. These days people are pushing 0.1ohm and 200W on their ULTRA CLOUD BEAST MASTER KING. Is it just a MORE WATTS = BETTER BECAUSE BIGGER NUMBER mentality or is there another reason behind it? It can't be good to push the batteries that hard, even with voltage regulators.

>It can't be good to push the batteries that hard, even with voltage regulators.
Batteries have an amperage limit and exceeding this will, at best, drain them more quickly and decrease the number of charge cycles before they need replacing. At worst they'll explode, though anyone with any sense is running a box mod with a specially designed protection circuit to mitigate against overloading. Modern 18650 batteries recommended for vaping can provide sustained ~20-30A at ~3-4V; put two of those in series and you're still pushing your luck to hit 200W. Additionally, you're going to be 1/ ripping through juice, and 2/ draining the batteries in no time. Honestly I doubt many people vape 200W all day long, it's just for bragging rights and showing off. Predictably, the Yanks have a crass "scene" around it with competitions and similar embarrassing shite.

Not that we're much better, apparently, given that there are evidently daft cunts here who decide to come into the (in my experience, steadily decreasing) number of pubs that allow vaping and decide to chase up a fucking storm. Half the time when I go into a pub and ask if vaping is permitted, if it's a "yes" it's provisional on me not producing huge billows of vape, presumably because some inconsiderate twat has gone in previously and gassed everyone else out. I have no issue with people messing around chasing 200W in their front room, but I do wish they'd show a bit of restraint when out in public, or it'll get banned everywhere.

People who try to start conversation with me at the bus stop. I don't mind getting asked if a bus has went past but I don't want to know about your siblings and your plan for the day.

I know that some people, especially old people might just be lonely and want to have a small chat with someone but doesn't the thought ever occur to them that they the reciplicant might not want the conversation? I'm hardly an Introvert but I prefer to wait in silence rather than pass the time talking to strangers. Worst still, I then have to fake an interest in what they're saying since I don't want to come off as a straight up cunt.

Older extroverts in particular get their happiness in life by engaging with others, and any stranger will do.

You don't have to fake any interest, and it's a mischaracterisation to say that most people who start conversations with strangers at bus stops talk about their grandchildren. More annoying are those people too dim to find an interesting middleground who dislike being forced to acknowledge their dimness so describe themselves as introverted.

I can't be arsed finding the link but there was definitely a study or some shit proving people who are less intelligent are more likely to find the need to fill silence with small-talk.

People who are less intelligent live life on easy mode. They aren't afflicted by depression nearly as much, they are more social because of exactly what you just mentioned and are happier in general because they don't think about the world as much. They can also go and watch a comic book film and not feel like they've just been raped in front of their comic book collection (because they can't read).

That's a self-esteem issue, another pitfall of thinking too much. I'm sure you would be useful in many ways, but I suspect unless someone galvanises your confidence with praise then you'll always feel inferior because I'm that way too. If I don't get praise for my efforts I just stop trying as hard, because the quality of my work appears irrelevant. It's about perspective and focus. If I'm motivated it's because I feel my time is rewarded.

Less intelligent people don't need positive reinforcement as much, but I'm generalising obviously. Recognising that someone is probably better leading than you and being a good team player is a "social" intelligence higher IQ individuals sometimes lack, which breeds resentment and depression. it's the difference between being happy to contribute vs having your contribution praised and validated. That is why you don't feel useful.

With everything, it's tackled by using mindfulness. If you're depressed though, I understand that might just seem like fucking bollocks.

Given how every cunt on here is from Ossett I'd like to talk about the "You know you have lived in Ossett when..." group. It's a fucking goldmine of this sort of shite. That, and because 85% of the population of Ossett is fat middle aged people, with another 10% being ANTISOCIAL YOOFS, it makes for brilliant reading. Sometimes some of Ossett's finest right-wing political theorists will make posts.

There's this whole very middle-aged "no swearing because won't somebody think of the children" vibe running through it, but you know once Pam and Angie and Diedre get their second glass of shitty Lidl "peeenoh nwaaaarrr" down them they'll be swearing like fucking sailors.

>I'd like to talk about the "You know you have lived in Ossett when..."

I joined the group shortly after moving to Ossett just over two years ago. After people started sincerely posting that drug dealers were letting off fireworks to let their clientele know they'd got some fresh gear in I did start to wonder what exactly I was letting myself in for if the locals were genuinely thick enough to believe that.

I used to live in Mirfield before moving to Ossett and the "Mirfield Matters" group wasn't much better. One of the town councillors, who got the role through nepotism, used the group as an ego trip. My personal highlight for being in that group was when a woman posted pictures of a gang of teenagers throwing bottles and stones at a field of horses; their [proper council estate scum] parents came on and, instead of saying they were going to discipline their kids, they turned on the woman and said they were going to get the police on her for uploading pictures of kiddiewinks without permission. It was a pure drama-fest, that one. The Mirfield group went from public to private after it turned out a Dewsbury group were sharing and taking the piss out a post by the aforementioned councillor where he was boasting about ringing the police because he wanted the roads gritting.

Lad. You don't want to get caught up in the crossfire from the turf war between BOB Ossett, Love Ossett and I'm sure there's a third one, Town Centre Partnership or something like that, you'll get fucked up. I think the only thing of value I've got from that Facebook group is someone pointing out the top of the town hall clock looks like the end of a penis.

Literally the only reasons I moved to Ossett are because it's next to the motorway to commute to Leeds and the schools are apparently good. Nothing in the past two years of living here has made me warm to it.

Sounds bizarre, but in Brazil there is an actual position within the drug gang hierarchy called "fogueteiro" (rocket man), whose job it is to release rockets into the sky to signify that the police are invading the favela and that all concerned with the firm should take cover in the nearest domicile.

I am exaggerating a bit, but there is a bit of a power struggle. I know someone involved in BOB Ossett and they feel like Love Ossett have stolen some of their thunder, particularly when they launched the Ossett loyalty card.

They're all largely ineffectual. I went to town when the Halloween event was on. There were about 8 or 9 entries into the pumpkin contest, bearing in mind the town's population is c. 22,000, and the market stalls were sparse and selling shite.

He's also asian, which I wouldn't mind, but he never flushes his heinous curry shits, he's constantly got a hacking stoner/smoker combo cough and leaves phlegm gobs in the bathroom sink and he smells....bad. This combined with everything else just makes the whole package a really shitty flatmate.

It seems pretty reasonable to me. Those videos likely do reinforce stereotypes about Africans and Arabs existing just to suffer. It reminds of a story that, honestly, is often on my mind anyway, about a homeless girl in Mexico who, like a lot of wee kiddies in shit circumstances would be sent from car to car in rush hour gridlock asking for change. However, this girl was pale and blond and thousands of people around the world were horrified by her being on the streets when her photo appeared online. And there's nothing wrong with that, but what is an issue is that there are obviously unconscious stereotypes people carry with them that stops them having this reaction about the homeless kids who aren't blond and blue eyed.

It'd be pretty hard for Comic Relief to shine the spotlight on children in Africa they're raising money for without actually, you know, meeting them and filming them. As this is a white majority country many of the celebrities they have to meet with them will be those dreaded white saviours.

I'd say using the most effective way to raise lots of money for charities is more important than the delicate sensibilities of the politically correct brigade who are prepared to take offence at almost anything.

The problem isn't especially Comic Relief, but how Africa is portrayed in the media the other 364 days of the year. When asked basic questions about international development like "What proportion of the world's girls are in education?", highly educated people make less accurate guesses than average - in fact, they make worse guesses than pure chance. Most westerners know literally less than nothing about Africa; the continent they know about is a media fiction.

Comic Relief's films do a good job of getting people to donate, but they're a hugely misleading portrayal of Africa. They sell the narrative "If you don't help this desperate child, no-one else will", completely devaluing the tremendous work being done by many African governments and local aid agencies in eradicating poverty. The factually accurate narrative is "Africa is successfully modernising, but you can help them out at the margin by chucking in a few quid". That narrative might not be as effective at fundraising in the short-term, but it's vital if we're to establish mutually beneficial long-term relationships with African nations.

I'm not singling out Comic Relief, they're just part of a broader problem with the media's portrayal of Africa and our understanding of the continent. Imagine if German TV only showed the shit bits of Britain, if the average German imagined that Britain was just an endless sea of council estates and food banks, if most Germans had never seen a middle-class British person. That's where we're at with Africa. We never see downtown Lagos or Accra, we never see the skyscrapers and shopping malls, we never see the investment managers and civil engineers.

Those "local aid agencies" are the ones being funded by the likes of Comic Relief, and African governments are by and large dysfunctional. The Ibrahim Prize, awarded for good governance and peaceful transition of power, has gone without a winner for six of the last eight years. The improvement in the overall condition of the continent is being driven by a better-off minority of countries. In the very poor central region, the gains of economic development are being almost entirely offset by deteriorating social and political development.

>The Ibrahim Prize, awarded for good governance and peaceful transition of power, has gone without a winner for six of the last eight years.

I'm not entirely sure that you're drawing a fair conclusion. To quote the chairman of the prize committee:

"As I emphasise each year, a very high bar was deliberately set when the Prize was launched in 2006. We recognise and applaud the important contributions that many African leaders have made to change their countries for the better. But the Prize is intended to highlight and celebrate truly exceptional leadership, which is uncommon by its very definition."

There are certainly massive shortcomings in governance in Africa, but the broad trend is positive. GDP and HDI are up pretty much across the board, even in deeply troubled countries like DR Congo and CAR.

IMO, the key untold story about Africa is China's involvement. They have a much more sophisticated approach to aid and investment, offering comprehensive packages that include development aid, logistical support and trade deals. They're serious about developing mutually beneficial economic relationships, rather than just dumping in money or food. They're offshoring massive numbers of low-skilled manufacturing jobs to Africa to offset rising domestic wages.

Crucially, China is funding and supporting better governance - they're more than willing to share the secrets of their economic miracle. China knows how to drag a huge population out of poverty and they want to support African nations to do the same, because they see Africa as the highest trade growth opportunity over the next century. They have a vested interest in political and economic stability, because it's the only way they're going to see a return on their investment; conversely, NGOs have a vested interest in perpetuating the problems that they exist to combat.

You aren't wrong about the white saviour complex and portraying Africans as helpless idiots, I remember seeing on the TV a bunch of celebrities (Ed among them), a few years back, asking, despite it being a largely Christian region of the world and recent improvements in education "do they know it's Christmas time at all?" Unbelievable how dumb do they think they are? Condescending pricks.

Whenever I see people on here posting things like this, I wonder if they even know what HDI is or if it's just an acronym they saw in a report once.

HDI is a purely quantitative measure, with no qualitative input. It measures exactly three things: income, life expectancy and years of education. It doesn't say anything about how the income is distributed, how the life expectancy is achieved or the quality of the education. North Korea gets a "high" rating almost entirely on the strength of its score in education because adult literacy is good and a child that survives to adulthood can expect to be in school for 12 years. Countries with oil revenues score highly on income regardless of whether the local dictator is pocketing half the money.

I just read an article about Kezia Dugdale being evicted from I'm a Celeb, and about how she thinks it was a good idea. It contained the following:

>Leonard and other colleagues have been highly critical of her decision but she told the show’s hosts, Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly...

Which is a very good microcosm of why it was actually a shite idea. Also the show's only been on for about two or three weeks, right? Something I'm counting as supporting evidence for my conclusion.

>EXPERIENCE IN IMAX

I hate advertisements that take a tone with me.

1) I'll do what I fucking want. Who made this cheap advertising agency an authority on how I consume media - I could feed the roll of film up my arse and there is not a damn thing the experience police could do to stop me.

2) And furthermore, while yes, the very act of existing is an experience, it's a cash grab movie based on reviving a brand from the 1970s so there is a rather limited frame of 'experience' at work here. If I stop into an IMAX theatre and experience the vacuum of space during the cgi shooty scenes I'm going to leave a very strongly worded review let me tell you.

>>26108
I feel like you're going too far the other way on this. Africa is not some 'Coming Anarchy' nightmare but it is by and large a place of unimaginable poverty where small donations can and do save lives, even supposed jewels like Lagos are festering turds rife with poverty, crime and a small clique of rich kids trying to show off their meagre wealth inherited from vice.

Yes the image of desperate poverty and conflict is bad for attracting investors but it's also a complaint borne from insecure African chauvinism that refuses to accept reality. Everything is someone else's problem you see, destitution is not the problem it is the western media reporting it.

>>26116
>IMO, the key untold story about Africa is China's involvement. They have a much more sophisticated approach to aid and investment, offering comprehensive packages that include development aid, logistical support and trade deals.

And providing unlimited credit cards to unstable governments, selling weapons to genocidal dictators etc.

Don't fall for the hype, China is doing what the rest of the world did up until the 1990s where loans could be unconditional and it will not only bite them in the arse later. They are becoming another USSR for tinpot dictators to turn to only this time they do so because the West refuses to lend to someone whose main source of tax revenue is onions despite being a country full of gold mines.

I feel like this should really be a discussion for /pol/ but I have to get my thoughts in or the world will be poorer for it.

Not them, but I think it is a tone thing. "Make sure you don't miss your chance to see it on the big screen" has the same intended goal as "Go see it in the cinema now" but one feels constructive advice for your benifit, the other feels like an order.

It's true, happened during the Great Desalination of the mid 00's where all the food manufacturers got the fear of god (or government) put in them and chucked out most of the salt in ready meals, replacing it with horrible low-sodium substitute, plus sugar and pepper.

Pot Noodles even tried to swing it as a health thing on the packaging, "now 40% less sodium" or something. Which was fucking ridiculous, because it's a Pot Noodle, if I gave a shit about my health I wouldn't be eating one.

I'm watching Narcos on Netflix and it's beginning to dawn on me that I could probably have made quite a good drug dealer if I hadn't been raised quite so morally.

I'm a bit of a sociopath, a very good leader, and rather enterprising, if I do say so myself. Yet I find myself a couple of steps above middle management in an industry notorious for shite pay. I'd have been sensible enough to avoid being shot in the face like Escobar, and could have retired at 25 on a mountain of drugs.

When I was a teenlad I was seeing some sort of college counsellor, and at one point when there were only three students in the room, he told this girl (who was clearly distressed with life a lot of the time) that two of the three were seeing the counsellor, trying to be reassuring to her but also trying to use a loophole to be smart. Of course, the other guy instantly blurted out that he wasn't in counselling. Anyway that teacher was an idiot.

I can't remember his title exactly, but he did mention that his primary job was putting on cultural and extracurricular events at the uni. I was actually referred to him by another member of staff, he's not just some bloke who comes up to miserable looking students. Apparently he also holds a group therapy event outside of university for what he heavily implied was for victims of childhood sexual abuse. Well, he may have been implying it, or he's incapable of not mouthing off.

Whatever, I'm just suicidal, it's not like I piss myself, he can tell who he likes I suppose.
