I don't normally do this, but I need the assistence of the britfa.gs community.

You see, Nerc are naming a ship. And it's a public vote is being held. In the lead is the name "Boaty McBoatFace", but it's only leading by a few thousand votes. It needs millions.

This has been in every newspaper but:


Now, if the website ever comes back up from people trying to vote for Boaty McBoatFace, just in case, here's the link:


Come on Britfa.gs lets get Boaty McBoatFace sailing!

What name would you have preferred?

I think it's kind of whimsical and charming. It's a string of cliché, with the repetition of 'boat', the 'Mc' prefix, and 'face' being a common suffix word when referring to people, like 'fuckface'. Obviously it doesn't take itself seriously, and it's obliquely in your face, which is why I think the tag of 'lolrandom' isn't justified, nor the cynicism going around.

I'm almost finished my master's year. I don't regret it at all but it's nothing like being an undergrad - the vast majority of people I knew have graduated and the ones that are left have mostly become boring sods obsessed with their subject and naff all else. I've taken the opportunity to get more involved in societies and stuff though, reckon that's something I'll miss away from uni.

By all means do it if you love your subject and don't mind being poor, but don't see it as a way of prolonging the undergrad life/postponing real responsibilities because they will come knocking anyway, just in the form of PhD applications/funding deadlines instead of job interviews/promotions.

There was a thread somewhere on this website which I read a long time ago. I remember, it had an old man that was supposedly a rebel back in the '70s or so. He was complaining about the state of the news. Using youtube videos, he gave examples of how news reports were back in the '80s, '90s and today and he talked about how they use a lot more fast cuts, how the reports are more trivial and emotional, that sort of thing. I want to back to that thread. Since the "weird dreams" thread has been up for so long, I figure that one might still be around too.

I have another question that's been bothering me for some time now: Nelson Mandela.

I was born in the early '90s so by the time I was a child, I already knew him as being some kind of hero (spending time on more nationalistic sites, I've been exposed to opinions that paint him as a useful idiot and a glorified vandal). When was Mandela's peak in pop culture and how great was it? What might it be comparable to today, if anything?

I think Chris Rock was on top form again for a change. In recent years, it very often looked like he had lost his comedic edge. Which happens to a lot of comedians at some point in their lives... they quite simply stop being funny, and without being able to ever be as sharp again as when they were on top of their game.

George Carlin was an exception; he was every bit as fucking hilarious in his later years as at the beginning of his stand-up career in the early 70s. The only thing which eventually slowed him down was his failing health; if you watch his last special "It's Bad For You" closely, you can tell that he just didn't have the energy anymore. And he died about a year later.


Nelson Mandela was kind of a recurring theme in Western politics towards South Africa in the 1980s, and the United Nations and Europe and the U.S. repeatedly tried to exert pressure on the South African government to release Mandela from prison and end Apartheid. But in actual fact, I think Mandela only really became the true icon as which he is now known when he was released and went on to become the South African president.

Eh, making it more specific might narrow the proportion of people who can be successfully targeted but will make it more effective on those people who do match the criteria. Given that it's just a black-and-white photocopy it's fairly trivial to just print and distribute more copies to cover the shortfall.

But yeah, it's a pretty shit thing to do indiscriminately. Have you checked with your neighbours to see if they received anything similar? If it was targeted specifically at OP you'd think they'd put in more effort than a crappy photocopy.

I'm also someone who's been going round years thinking it was a NSAID, but digging deeper, it gets a little bit more complicated:
It isn't so much that paracetamol "isn't" one, it's more that it "isn't considered" one. It does have a tiny and insignificant anti-inflammatory effect. Apparently.

I got an interesting job offer today.

I'm skint as fuck so I was looking for part-time work as you do and I came across a handy man type position at this place not far from me. A private house, older building needing a spare hand.

Sorted I thought, so I fired my CV across and asked what sort of work they needed doing.

I received the reply "Odd jobs, really -- painting, furniture construction, moving things, a bit
of outdoor work when the weather is good."

Just my sort of thing.

Oh, they're also nudists and want me to work stark fucking naked all the time with husband, wife and three adult sons jamming about the place bare arses and all.

It's for £900/week, I'm fucking tempted. I don't fucking know what the fuck is going on anymore.

So I sold a fairly high value model train on ebay. It arrived to the buyer in a damaged state (although it could probably be fixed by a very skilled modeller), but he thankfully paid extra for insurance. The insurance claim has come through and I am now in a position to give the buyer a full refund.

What's the correct course of action from here? I was planning on giving him a full refund and letting him keep the train, but a jewish friend of mine says that I should ask for the damaged model train back before refunding him, because the buyer shouldn't get to keep both the train and the insurance money.

I'd take a lateral thinking approach to OP's moral quandary. If the person is geographically east, let him keep the train. Something in the packing was overfull, something unforeseen happened in transit, whatever - the train itself is now worthless. Trains going east to mysterious holiday destinations, these things happen.

If he is in any other direction, ask for the train back and tell my fellow jewlad he's a tight prick.

You are just too stupid to see the obvious Sopranos references. The Jew friend is obviously Hesh and the debt is the vig that was only paid off after his moolinian goomad had died. OP is some sort of train model master Tony, he takes insurance on all of his major business investments, but circumstances beyond his control break the various systems (or toy trains) that he owns. Vito, Richie Aprille, Ralph Cifferetto, Tony Blundetto, Chris Moltasanti and even his own son end up failing OP toy train tony.

The religious conatations are quite striking, the Catholic representation of Jesus and the stark contrast between his Jesus killing friend's stinginess often relates to how toy train Tony had behaved throughout his life.

OP is just operating on a troll level that is above the average .gs user, only a few enlightened understand the tragedy he is enacting through this humourous train thread. Perhaps you should just imagine an Italian mob version of Thomas the Tank engine and his mates.

Most homeless people as for money or cigs.

I'm totally fine giving them cigs and having a chat while I roll it, but now I've realised that I'm unambiguously hastening their death. I mean, it'd be easy to murder a homeless person by giving them something tainted, and since cigarettes are already essentially poisonous, am I not just doing the same thing?

Should I stop giving them cigarettes because I feel guilty that I'm slowly murdering them, or should I keep giving them cigarettes because it makes them happy?
