You can highlight blocks of text by simply left clicking where you want to start, then holding down shift and left clicking at the point where you want it to end.

I'm sure most people probably know this by now but you can auto complete web URLs for .com addresses by hitting Ctrl+Enter. So type hotmail into your browser and then Ctrl+Enter and it will automatically become www.hotmail.com

Shift + Enter will auto-complete *.net address
Ctrl + Shift + Enter will auto-complete *.org address

Adding Alt to any of the above at any point before you hit Enter, will complete the address and open it in a new tab.

Most of this has become redundant with predictive URL typing. For instance, I ctrl-t for new tab (or ctrl-L to get to the address bar), press e, press enter, to get to ebay.co.uk. For regularly visited addresses this is a godsend.

Yeah for the first .... year? Basically a marriage is like any other relationship; it gets old - fast. The problem with marriage is there's this huge expectation to keep it going, even when everything has just become a continuous daily drudge. Never mind the fact of ploughing the same damn fallow field every day for the rest of your life. Love, like grief, fades away lad. You can definitely love someone after ten years, but still be in love with them?

Well, maybe it's possible, but it didn't work out that way for me and I've never seen a case of it happening.

I've heard that distinction before, between loving someone and being in love. I don't understand that. Perhaps it's just my experiences have never allowed that to happen, my only relationships have been between two and four years long, and I was still crazy about all of them when we broke it off. Only after separating to my feelings seem to fade.

Yeah, it's an issue of time. Both of you will change as people after 10 years of career options, the loss of friends and family due to death or life, and the possible arrival of children. So many things can change the dynamic of a relationship; sometimes people just grow apart. This is why after a decade still sleeping in the same bed as this one person is actually something of an achievement. People might've stayed married 50 years ago because divorce wasn't acceptable, but that doesn't mean they actually tolerated or enjoyed the situation by the time they were approaching 40 after having married in their early 20s.

In the spirit of Adam and Joe's podcast, tell us stories about when you've been on the train an automobile or aeroplane.

Once an African lady told me to look after her baby whilst she went to the loo. I assumed she'd locked the door so I didn't warn the man who was about the open the door to the lavvie. Cue high pitched scream from African lady and an embarrassed grimace from the man.

Another time some chav was arguing with the conductor who going apeshit. Mid argument, the chav looked at me in appeal but I just averted my eyes and pretended to not know what was going on, obliviously listening to my music.

When about 12 I was sat next to some poor lad who was getting mugged.
Two older men hunting for weak prey came across him and started pressuring him into buying a bunch of useless crap I assume they got from a charity shop, like a PC chess game and a really shitty watch. The lad kept saying no but they were really intimidating and easily changed his mind rinsing his wallet dry. £40ish for a fivers worth of junk.
Before they left one of the men looked at me, smiled then gave me his newspaper.

I once flew to Australia, and on the second leg between Singapore and Sydney, I was sat about two metres away from a woman with an infant. Said infant was screaming and crying practically the WHOLE. FUCKING. TIME. during the flight. She had him in one of those airplane cots that cabin staff can put up for you. Oh, and that little bundle of joy also shat one out every few hours, and the woman would change his nappies right in front of everybody, which meant that now and then there was a whiff of baby excrement wafting my way. Just the kind of thing you need when you've already endured a 13 hour flight just to get to bloody Singapore, and five hours bumming about aimlessly with nothing to do at Singapore's Changi Airport.

All my life I've never been in any hurry whatsoever to have kids of my own anyway; but that experience certainly didn't make me reconsider.

Exactly. Every single time my mum took me on her shopping trips to M&S I'd just stand in Games Workshop looking at stuff. Sometimes I'd skip classes and sit in the science labs trying to paint Space Marines, and the lab tech wouldn't question it because if I wasn't skipping there, I'd sit under a table in a disused office room reading books and start crying and screaming if someone tried to make me move.

Then go to your GP and ask about being referred to an Autism specialist for an assessment.

I know you were being flippant, and that this isn't /emo/, but on the off-chance you're on the spectrum and would still benefit from some kind of support only accessible after a formal diagnosis, it's worth pointing out that you still have a legal right to an autism assessment as an adult.

It's more of this I worry about >>381531 than myself. I don't give much of a shit what happens to my body after I die. The only worry is if I die before my parents and they find my porn collection. Nothing illegal or anything but I don't think they'll understand my massive collection of JAVs which feature some sort of bizarre situation in each of them which can vary from watersports, to hermaphrodites (due to the censoring it's like it's a fake cock or I masturbated to gay porn) to gameshows which involve whipped cream and broken marriages.

Not to mention I've got a porno of conjoined twins from the early 90s kicking about on my external hard drive somewhere.

Oh and the 500GBs of hentai games and VNs but that's less of a priority as I doubt my parents wouldn't know how to turn a PC onto Japanese locale, mount a virtual CD/DVD and then install it entirely in Japanese.

380918 Toxic substance in a soft drink - what do?
On Sunday morning I bought 4 bottles of isotonic drink from a national supermarket chain. I was drinking them throughout the day during a bike ride I went on.

On my way back, very close to my house, I opened the last, 4th bottle, and took a sip. It tasted odd, but I thought I might just be tired after cycling for almost the whole day and maybe it's affecting my taste buds. I took another sip but it still tastes strange. I got suspicious, and smell the drink properly, and it smelt of some kind of solvent, like maybe diluted nail polish remover.

There was some kind of strange substance sort of crystallising, looking a bit like jelly fish forming the the centre of the bottle.

I only had about 50ml of that drink, so I'm not worried about my well-being, although I did take today off work as I wasn't feeling very well in the morning. I'm not sure if these two events are related, or just overlap.

Clearly this isn't supposed to be there - what are the next reasonable steps I could take? I was thinking of possibly getting the substance tested.

Someone told me that it looks like some toxic substance from the plastic could have gotten into the bottle during the manufacturing process, and I could sue the company for negligence.

I've asked for a copy of the complaints procedure from the supermarket, but I didn't mention what it is regarding. I did not hear from them yet (I have emailed).

But surely once the truth has got it's boots on it's in a much better position to kick that lie somewhere painful once it's caught up with it, or at least to kick misinformed people who believed the lie until they tell the truth? I mean, to get that much of a head start the lie is presumably wearing some kind of slip-on running shoe, while the truth is presumably wearing 24-hole boots (or possibly New Rocks) that take forever to get on.
