Huddersfield charity shop finally says goodbye to a shutter which lasted 26 years


http://www.examiner.co.uk/news/west-yorkshire-news/huddersfield-charity-shop-finally-says-10780879

That's it. That's literally it. A charity shop has replaced one of its roller shutters after having the same one for 26 years. It's all go in Huddersfield.

I challenge you lads to find a more pointless news story than this.

I wonder if that confuses cause and effect. If you got your shit together and people started throwing their knickers at you surely you would have a harder time being faithful?

Basically what I'm saying is that if you love your Mrs you should fatten her up and sabotage her attempts at going weight watchers. But then you can lose weight together and bond over the experience.

So you're saying she isn't goint to leave you as long as she's physically unable to get off her couch and walk out the door?


I had one relationship as a younglad where I seriously considered breaking up with someone because she had gained about three stone in the two, two and a half years that we were together. I guess that kind of mindset comes with being spoilt for choice at that age, with plenty other fish in the sea. But on the other hand, I also don't fully buy when 30something out of shape couples say they are staying together because they're in love with the person that their partner is. Not saying that that isn't a very real possibility, but I also think that a lot of them know full well that they're beyond the point where they could just get back out there again and have another roll of the dice.

I suspect it's more a case of being unwilling rather than unable. I certainly don't have the energy to be chasing skirt like I did in my twenties, if/when my missus breaks out the hair dye and leaves me for a snowboarder I'll be content enough alone, because I really don't think I could be arsed to woo someone again. They'd not even live in the same house as me if I started fresh, what a fucking hassle that would be.

I second that. It was definitely loads of fun while it lasted, and I have fond memories of that time. But going through all that again would probably do my head in these days, more than ten years later.

But also, there just aren't many fish left in the sea when you hit a certain age (unless you go the wrongun route and date a 22-year-old with daddy issues), and the ones that are available either come from broken marriages, with kids and loads of emotional baggage (and possibly financial debt), or they're the kind of woman who's never been married and has started buying one or two cats as she's looking down the barrel of her ovaries withering. So it's your pick really, accept your fate and stay with somebody who is far from perfect, and often in no way your ideal dream partner, or get out there and go for the offal that has been thrown back into the empty sea.

I know a few lads punching well above their weight by going after single mums. I don't think the trade-off is worth it, but fair play to them for shagging lasses far fitter than they'd otherwise be able to.

My dad had an affair with a 30-year-old when he was 46. He had the perfect alibi, as he was sent to work 200 miles away for his company during the week for a project lasting about a year. He rented a fully equipped bedsit flat there for himself and only came home to us on weekends. What he neglected to tell us, or my mum, was that one of his younger female colleagues was also regularly sent to work on that project as well. My dad's bedsit probably served as their love nest then, as it were.

My mum only really found out after his accidental death years later, when she one day happened upon an envelope with photos of the two together that was hidden in the gap between two roof beams in the attic of our house.

We had a client at work die relatively young; he slipped and banged his head on concrete steps. It turned out he had a secret family in Thailand that his wife only found out about when it came to sorting out his estate and who should be the beneficiaries of his workplace death in service scheme.

When my dad died a few years later and my mum then found the photos, we briefly considered the possibility that my dad may have created offspring with his colleague during their affair. My dad was fairly well to do, not really rich, but with a nice sum of life savings that he was able to set aside from his job as a senior engineer, and some life insurance, all of which he passed on to us. Which was a godsend because my mum was a stay-at-home parent who hadn't worked since my brother and I were born, and still had to pay off the mortgage. But I digress.

It was known that that woman fell pregnant a few months after the project ended, so my mum decided to tackle the issue proactively and phoned her. Not to dig up the past about my philandering dad, but to really find out the truth so it wasn't going to hang over our heads. But it turned out that her child was from a subsequent affair, and not from the time when she was with my dad. Apparently, she and my dad ended their affair when the project was over, because they both knew that he would not have been able to keep it up at home as a married family man. She assured my mum that her child was from somebody she started seeing a few months after my dad, and that there was no chronological possibility that my dad could have been the father.

Not sure if it would have changed her mind knowing how much money my dad left us, but not mentioning that detail was probably the best way to get an honest answer from her.

One of my best mates has a dad who has five children from five different women. He was married three or four times. So my friend has as many as four half siblings.

It's funny because he and his dad look like identical twins, of course with an age difference of 25-odd years between them. But my friend is nothing like his dad temper wise; he's been together faithfully with his girlfriend for the best part of 15 years and they are about to get married.

When my great-grandfather was making his way back across Europe after IIWW ended he stopped off in France to father a couple of bastards, before finally returning to Liverpool to father some not-bastards. I think I've posted about this before, but whatever. This thread's leading me to have serious doubts about the old adage "distance makes the heart grow fonder", as it usually seems to wind up producing lots of extra-marital shagging instead.

French women really seemed to be up for it in those days. I saw a documentary once about that. A lot of them were easy to win over if you were a dashing Wehrmacht uniformlad. So you didn't even have to be on our side to pull French birds get them in the sack.

However, this was not something that the French as a whole took kindly to. There were accounts that in some villages, those women were seized by angry mobs, their heads were shaved, and they were paraded around the village with a sign around their neck that read "I slept with a German pig".

Not entirely related, but one of my exes once found out while doing some ancestry research that one of her direct ancestors during Edwardian times was a murderer, and convicted and sentenced to death for killing several women after raping them. Nobody in her family talked much about him, and because he and his wife divorced after a few years, nobody in my ex's family actually knew much about what happened to him later in his life. My ex was really pretty shocked and it took her some time to come to grips with it.

I've seen interviews with British women who thought that the Second World War was great and they didn't want it to end because they were having so much sex.

I suppose the thought that the Luftwaffe could drop a bomb and kill you at any moment would be enough to loosen your inhibitions somewhat.

The Netherlands' leading supermarket chain has abandoned a request for staff to upload semi-naked photographs of themselves to an app so it could work out sizes for a new uniform.

Albert Heijn had called on staff at a branch in the eastern city of Nijmegen to upload photos of themselves in their underwear or tight-fitting sports gear.

The trope of a soldier's wife sleeping with other men while he's away fighting dates back centuries. In fact, I think there's even references to it in texts from antiquity or further back. Sex and violence. We're a pretty grim species, at times.

Cafe's naughty-sounding name shows up on bank statements - but wives are seeing the funny side

A cafe owner says its naughty-sounding name has led to an unexpected rise in business.

The Tea's Me Cafe in Lockwood has seen an increase in couples calling in on Saturdays and, according to its owner, it's all down to the cafe's name showing up on male customers' bank statements. A spokesman for the Albert Street cafe said 'banter levels' had gone through the roof.

"Our name comes up as Teas Me on debit cards, so men have had to bring in their partners to prove to them we are a cafe. We came up with the name after sitting down and having a think. We were going to go for 'Baps to the Future'. We've had a few people in who said their partner thought they had been on a dodgy website or something. The men have been bringing in their partners on a Saturday morning to see it's just a cafe. We've had a lot of good banter."

Lads, I don't know quite what direction this thread has taken 1300 posts after discussing those shutters, but I've just had a potentially amazing idea.

Traffic lights, right? How often are you driving and you get stopped when the person already crossed? Or how often do you feel a twinge of guilt for pressing the button before realising you can just go now?

How much time do you think would be saved if the traffic button needed to be pressed twice - once to queue a request, and once to activate it? So if there's no one there to press the button a second time, when it's flashing or making a unique beep, then the lights won't change.

I'm not sure what to call it. Possibly 'retarded', but it could surely be a newsworthy idea.

Is that what I said? Fuck. I meant a different toned beep so blind people don't just walk in the road. The lights wouldn't change, neither traffic nor pedestrian, unless there's someone still waiting to cross after the initial press, since there's generally a delay.

I get what he's saying, after the first press, at the time the lights would have changed instead a calming woman voice would say "Are you still here? Press again to confirm" and if it was pressed again the lights would change. It's a perfect system.

From the perspective of a motorist, though, watching the lights change as a direct reaction to some cunt stood there pressing the button would probably annoy me far more than them changing themselves while unoccupied by pedestrians.

As I type this though, I realise that I'm pretty sure many crossings already have pedestrian sensing cameras on them, so I'd be pretty fucking surprised if they didn't already simply not change if the crossing no longer has people stood at it.

Fuck, really? I've not driven in 10 years so I don't really know, I assumed it'd be more annoying to have them arbitrarily stop you with nary a punter in sight.

>As I type this though, I realise that I'm pretty sure many crossings already have pedestrian sensing cameras on them, so I'd be pretty fucking surprised if they didn't already simply not change if the crossing no longer has people stood at it.

Good point, though presumably this isn't super widespread, but still somewhat prevalent. Do you know that they would prevent a change occurring if detecting no pedestrian at the lights, or is that a guess? Seems like something that could produce false positives depending on the method, do you know if that system is widespread?

It's just a guess, possibly based on fuzzy memories of observing them, but I feel like I haven't been stuck waiting at an empty crossing in a good long while.

Couldn't really tell you an more, but I notice just about every crossing in my particular town has camera/sensor things pointed at the pedestrians.
