Are you implying that pensioners in track suit are all wrong uns?

That's a very nasty thing to say about my granddad, who also loves his track suits. You should be ashamed of yourself.

I mean, when did tracksuits become a thing? Surely any pensioner was well into their thirties when the fashion propagated. So they have made the choice to start wearing the fashionable yooth clothes at middle age?

The flashy Adidas ones that Castro sports aren't even comfortable. I respect any pensioner in those soft grey sweatpants as they're basically pajamas you can wear on the bus, and if I could I'd wear them to work. But the expensive ones are all rigid and starchy and at worst, polyester. It's a fashion statement, and no OAP has any business make one of those.

The theory goes that he wore the Adidas trackies because they sponsored the Cuban Olympic team when other suppliers refused. I wonder if the irony was lost on him.

I think I've learnt one thing for sure in the deluge of Castro coverage over the last week, and that he didn't really give a shit. Not in a nihilistic way, just in a devil may care manner.

> Well I got an unsuccessful email this morning. Are you happy now, you bastard?

That's actually pretty decent; in my experience most places just disappear on unsuccessful applicants like lasses well out of your league do when they wake up sober the next morning.

Personally I always try to follow up an unsuccessful interview with a short, but personalized, email giving suggestions on how the candidate might improve and/or areas to strengthen etc. Obviously I can only do this because I have a small company with a high retention rate and probably only do a handful of interviews in any given year (although one year I did an absolute ton, and every candidate was wank).


> A lot of jobs in my area want programming so I'll have to revisit the fundamentals of that. I do want to avoid jobs with programming. I see it too much as a hobby and it bores the shit out of me in a work setting.

Now I'm interested in what is is you do / want to do. I'm guessing something science or maths heavy with programming used for solving equations or modeling systems. Am I close?

Experience has taught me lying on my application goes poorly during the interview stage as it's a little more difficult to lie on the spot. Though I do live by the creed of "if you can't dazzle them with your brilliance, baffle them with your bullshit"
Yes it's lovely getting confirmation and I respect an organisation more if they make the effort to do that. Even more so when they provide feedback but I accept that it's not possible in most cases.

I did systems security at uni and what I was taught is light on programming. It's certainly helpful in some aspects but you can get away with not knowing a single thing about it. The closest to programming that needs to be known is SQL (and other query languages), Linux commands and some html. All of which are not programming. Programming doesn't really come into it unless you want to work devops or want to show off to an employer employing protesters that you can make your own customised python software in specific situations. An example might be a way to crack a cipher quickly or an automated application that runs a set of tools.

I've had maybe half a dozen interviews in a short period of time so there's certainly interest. I just seem to tumble at the interview stage. My feedback is usually the same. I get curve balled at basic technical questions where I go blank. I can tell you the formula to solve a RSA cipher and who created it on a whim but not what the seven stages of the OSI model without having to Google it.

Positive feedback I get usually consists of being passionate, talkative in a good way and being knowledgeable in focused area which in itself is a double edged sword as I'll neglect researching other subjects in preparation for an interview.

I've had plenty of bans in this place for petty reasons that were 'only just comedy bans and totally were for only a second' whilst they were quickly quitely removed. If I didn't know this place and I hadn't been the sort of person to call bullshit I could see a week long ban for posting the 'wrong sort of image' on an image board, or 'phrasing something in a manor acceptable everywhere on the internet but here' or using a rhetorical device that somehow offeneded a mod as being a reason not to bother comming back here.

A Heinz TV advert teaching viewers how to use cans of its baked beans to drum out a song has been banned for being dangerous for children to copy.

The commercial, which used the strapline “Learn the #CanSong, featured children, teenagers and adults using Heinz Beanz tins to drum out the rhythm of song.

Nine viewers lodged complaints with the Advertising Standards Authority that the advert encouraged “unsafe practice”, with six believing that it could be dangerous for children to emulate.

Broken Britain.

How can nine small minded idiots get an advert banned?

One of the girls I've been seeing is working on an art project for some supposed Colombian child genius. He apparently wrote a book at 13, but the Vatican bought every single copy. The art project is to fund a children's hospital at first, but leftover money will go to building a town strictly for child geniuses. Basically he's a fucking quackpot. He's also a dwarf and speaks only in Spanish, if that helps paint a mental picture.

He's also supposedly clairvoyant. He knew that she has issues with her period without her having told him beforehand, and on her first day at work he asked her about her night with me that week, without being told that she was seeing anyone. He's always asking people if they want to know the day they die and that sort of thing and claims he can tell someone's fortune just by looking at their photo.

For shits and giggles she said she was gonna show him a photo of me, since he keeps asking for one. Today she offered, and apparently he "can already see me" and "doesn't want her to see me again" because I'm "untrustworthy" and refused to even look at my picture out of anger.

What do I do when a mental Colombian millionaire midget is trying to cock-block me?

Instead they turned to news on social media which had a ton of bullshit that wasn't true in the slightest and greatly influenced the result of the election. People are idiots.

Being able to read all the media on a daily basis is one of the wonders of the modern world. When I were a lad in my formative years, you had to fucking BUY the papers. Every morning now I read BBC, Daily Mail, Guardian, Telegraph, Washington Post, NY Times, FT and many more - in the old days you had to pay good money to get a breadth of views - it's much easier now.

I wouldn't want to be a journalist (sanctimonious fucks are dead career wise anyway) but as a consumer of news, the internet is truly ace and anyone who moans about the distorted or biased media just isn't looking.

Kind of a shame though that that's not what most people do online. They don't spend their time getting a "breadth" of views on an issue, but tend to just want to see their own views and prejudices confirmed. Which is indeed easier as well than in the old days with just printed newspapers.
