I'm really surprised that nothing has been posted about this here. The EU is discussing and voting on a proposal which would require "online hosting providers" to actively monitor and filter all user-uploaded content. As far as I am aware, this is the biggest threat to the freedom of the internet that has ever existed. Are you lads already aware and just assuming that it won't pass because it's unworkable in practice?

Lads, I've been having a think. How much do you plan your life? As in:-

• "I want to live in a nice house in that lovely village I always pass through. Here's how I'm going to achieve it."
• "The ultimate aim in my career is to be doing x.
• "I want to retire by the time I'm 60. I'm going to put away x amount of money every month to try and achieve this."
• "By the time I'm 40 I'd like to have traveled to the Azores, Japan, New Zealand and the Galapagos islands."
• "I want to learn a new language in the next two years."
• "This summer I'm going to walk the Three Peaks, go white water rafting and start training for my first 10k."

You get the idea. I have a milestone birthday later this month and, whilst my life isn't without direction, I could probably do with some more concrete end goals and how these are to be achieved.

I don't really think it's a counterpoint, rather a complimentary point. I did briefly mention having longer term goals but taking smaller steps towards them because you never know when your longer term goals might suddenly change (whether by choice or not).

That said it was a good point worth making, it clarifies my lines of thinking better than I did myself and perhaps manages to make the point I was trying to make in a clearer and more succinct fashion than I was able to myself.

Just to annoy >>/shed/14684, I'm going to talk about the software industry.

Back in the 80s, the vast majority of software projects were planned up front from start to finish using the waterfall model. Product managers would work with the customer to develop a product requirements document, which would then be used to produce a design. That design would be implemented, verified and delivered. Everything cascaded down from that product requirements document, hence the name "waterfall".

Over time, software projects became increasingly complex and started to fail catastrophically. Sometimes the requirements were just flat wrong, because the customer and the project manager had failed to fully understand the problem they were trying to solve; a working piece of software was delivered, but it wasn't useful to the customer. Sometimes the design was so absurdly complex that it was impossible to implement and the project dragged on until the customer decided to cut their losses and abandon it. Sometimes the software worked, but it was far too difficult to use or didn't integrate into the workflow of the users or the wider software infrastructure of the company. Months or years of work often amounted to nought.

We started to borrow ideas from just-in-time and lean manufacturing, which evolved into what we call the agile methodology. Rather than trying to plan everything up front, the development team build a simple, minimal prototype that solves one narrow part of the customer's problem. That prototype is tested with the end users, with their feedback being used to guide the next stage of development. If that prototype turns out to be completely useless, it can be abandoned at minimal cost; if it's useful but flawed, the design can be quickly amended based on user feedback before it becomes too complex.

Today, the vast majority of successful software projects use some form of the agile methodology. Public sector software projects tend to stick with waterfall methods, which is why they tend to fail so often and so expensively. Doing "just the right amount" of planning had a revolutionary impact on the software industry.

Another approach that seems to be prevalent in software programming is to just haphazardly and without great planning start in one place, then put that area on hold suddenly if you run into a problem, and start another detail of the project, then you go back to the last unfinished bit of the project and think, what if we implement this and that feature as well, and so on, and you get totally lost and lose sight of the project as a whole.

I remember reading some programmer's blog where he likened that approach to building a house, and then one day deciding you want to build the roof first, then maybe you spend some time in the basement and decide you want gold plated faucets in the boiler room, then you go back to tiling the roof, and then maybe at some point you put a few bricks on top of each other which you think will one day be part of the downstairs livingroom. And so on.

I dabble in Arduino programming from time to time, and I have started projects with many different facets that needed many different functions, so I can relate to that kind of temptation of falling into a kind of ADHD approach where you do one thing one day and then in the middle of it decide that another segment of your code could use that one cool feature you found somewhere. It doesn't help advance your project, so I have decided that in the future, I will make a more stringent outline of what I want my code to do. This is just a hobby for me, I don't do it to earn any money, so I guess it doesn't matter. But still. It's annoying when you realise you have spent ten days developing a bespoke font library for your little TFT screen, but have not made one bit of progress on your code's actual core routines.

So that's what 'agile' means. I've always thought it was a stupid corporate buzzword. I mean, it still is a bit of a stupid corporate buzzword, but at least I know it actually means something more like 'adaptable', now.


Going back to the original thread topic, I'd highly recommend reading Angela Duckworth's 'Grit' for anyone interested in developing interests and committing to them in a more consistent way. She has a section on goal setting, and uses the following simple diagram to illustrate how prerequisite goals can add up to some ultimate aim, and how you can easily work around it when one section of the plan fails.

There's lots of other interesting research and such in there, too.

/emo/27047 Where to meet birds
So, I've decided to try and not be that guy, a relationship-less virgin, into my mid-20s, which doesn't leave me with very long. I'm home from uni for the summer and have decided it's time to sort my act out.

The only problem - where to meet women?

I've completed tinder in a 15 mile radius, likewise for Bumble - zero (0) matches. I've messaged pretty much every girl on OKCupid with a match >75%; not one has replied.

What can I do now? The few local schoolfriends I am still in contact with are all male, everyone at my job is male, and all the women I talk to (from uni) are either in a relationship or otherwise not an option.

Going out to clubs doesn't work because a) I don't have anyone to go with, and b) when I try and do anything but stand at the bar drinking in a club (ie dance) I look like a tortoise trying to pilot a motorcycle.

Any ideas?

"Hobby" is a very broad term. You could join a running club or go to evening classes at your local college. You could join a vegetarian society or a small business networking group or Britain First. Whatever it is that you might be interested in, there's a group of people who meet up to share that interest. I don't think you'd be terribly interested in a woman who isn't interested in anything.

I don't mean to sound like a cunt but that's rather likely to be the source of your unattractiveness. You're the kind of terminally boring fucker who can't even understand other people having interesting things to do with their time because it's current year.

Get a fucking hobby, jesus. What do you actually do with your time? Do you just come home from work, eat, and fall asleep? Or, as I suspect, do you squander the time shitposting on imageboards and vegetating in front of Youtube?

Being interesting and passionate about something, anything, is such a big factor in making you attractive to women I can't emphasise it enough. Why do you think musicians and artists get so much pussy. Even trainspotters get nerdy anorak girls who are secretly fucking crazy in the sack. Get a fucking hobby.

I admire your passion, but honestly, even you don't seem to truly realise what a perilous time we are entering.

Britain is approaching what could almost be described as a tropical climate. Our natural plantlife and scant remaining forestation is already taking a hit. Our agricultural ecosystem will have to adapt, and wildlife will struggle to cope.

You need to wake up and see this for what it is. It's a plot by Big Suncream. They've been lobbying for and end to British weather for years, and they're within dangerous reach of making it a reality.

>James Gunn is exiting Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

>The move comes after conservative personalities resurfaced old tweets Thursday in which the filmmaker joked about controversial topics such as pedophilia and rape. Gunn has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump.

>"The offensive attitudes and statements discovered on James’ Twitter feed are indefensible and inconsistent with our studio’s values, and we have severed our business relationship with him," Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn said in a statement Friday.

>On Thursday, Gunn tweeted in response to the tweets being resurfaced, "Many people who have followed my career know, when I started, I viewed myself as a provocateur, making movies and telling jokes that were outrageous and taboo. As I have discussed publicly many times, as I’ve developed as a person, so has my work and my humor."

I don't care he made jokes that people are offened on behalf of someone else for. I just wanted him to keep making a decent film series. If you are shocked that he said these things you haven't been paying attention to his carear very well. Disney obviously knew who he was and didn't care until they thought they might get bad PR, not standing by him is fucking spineless.

>Drag queens banned from performing at Free Pride Glasgow event over fears acts will offend trans people


>The organisation said in a statement that it hopes to create a safe space for all members of the LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, intersex, asexual) community, and that while the decision may "disappoint" some people "the needs of the most marginalised groups within our community come first."


>Free Pride Glasgow said: “It was felt that it [drag performance] would make some of those who were transgender or questioning their gender uncomfortable. It was felt by the group within the Trans/Non Binary Caucus that some drag performance, particularly cis drag, hinges on the social view of gender and making it into a joke, however transgender individuals do not feel as though their gender identity is a joke.”

You need to learn how to own and internalise it. A key step of which is not giving a fuck what others think about it and realise it doesn't really matter ass long as you are living true to yourself.

>Who instilled this rhetoric into you? Why do you subscribe to it?

It's just the conflict of your typical masculine identity, with something that you see as typically feminine. You'll get used to it. I used to feel a similar way about indulging my massive petplay fetish, but you get used to it- As daft as it sounds in your present headspace, being open and honest with yourself really makes a big difference. Live your truth as the millennials would say.

You may even find that you can even feel much more confidently "masculine" before, with the security to get your rocks off in just exactly the way that best pleases you. It's a liberating feeling to no longer be trapped by the mentality of the average straight lad, who won't even let a bird finger his bum in case it triggers an identity crisis.

How does your girlfriend feel about it, if you don't mind me asking? If she likes it then you're onto a winner, a new life of awakened hedonism awaits.

The Novichok was found on the front door of the skripal's house.

There are photos of countless police officers guarding the house and standing right by their front door yet not a single one of them has fallen ill.

When litvinenko was poisoned there were countless images of him in his hospital bed, yet there are none of the skripals.

They supposedly fed ducks and birds after being contaminated but there have been no poisoned ducks. Not a single quacker.

There has been no visit from Theresa May or Amber Rudd to thank the staff at the hospital.

There has been no police appeal for people who know the skripals to come forward.

The police searched the skripals house an hour after they had collapsed and no officers have been contaminated in this way.

Neither has their post man.

I do remember reading, perhaps in Stasiland by Anna Funder (which is a great book), there were a few people who crossed from west to east - often soldiers who wanted to be with a bird they had met, or people wanting to disappear from their lives in the West.

As I recall, they were sent to labour camps at best, executed at worst.

My ex girlfriend actually asked me once how I do it every day, wanking off without getting carpal tunnel. To her, it felt like a real effort whenever she was wanking me off.

So I asked her, what about when she got herself off. Rubbing your G spot to climax doesn't really seem to be much less effort. She then rightly said that she never felt the need to do it up to two times a day. And that she usually used a vibrator because it was so much more convenient.

Then again, my ex wasn't like that in every respect. She was often the one who initiated sex. She often got right to the point, and would just simply lower herself onto my knob when she felt like it. And she didn't need the kind of foreplay that some women expect. You know, the types who expect to be waited on and are really just lying there waiting for the bloke to do everything.

She sometimes said maybe she was a lad trapped in a woman's body, because she kind of dealt with sex more like a bloke. It had to be fun, and when she was sexually aroused, she wanted to get her rocks off, and fast.

What's really going to blow your mind is if you read up on War Plan Red. Suddenly, the heroic Allies won't seem so heroic to you anymore. If it hadn't been for Hitler starting WWII, then quite likely WWII would have taken place pretty much around the same time, give or take, between the United States and the British Empire. One of the first steps would have been an illegal military invasion and occupation of Canada by the U.S.. And things probably would have progressed from there.

>under largely the same sort of consumer-capitalist society we live in now

Not quite. One key feature of modern consumerism is and was credit. In the 1940s, credit and loans were far from ubiquitous as they are now. If you wanted to buy consumer goods, it was largely understood that you would have to earn and save your own money to afford them. Then again, job security and real-term wages were at levels unknown to most people today. Through his own hard work, a family man really could earn enough to provide and afford modest luxuries for a family of four including a stay at home housewife.

The kind of credit consumer mentality we have today really only came about after WWII and going into the 1950s and 1960s, with readily available consumer credit. Sadly, this also meant that in general, employers no longer needed to keep wages high and fixed in order not to cut their own flesh on the consumer side, because consumer demand for the goods they offered no longer depended on income, but increasingly only on the availability of credit. And now we live in a world where over 60 percent of new cars are financed. If you took away consumer credit, entire industries would collapse. As they have, e.g. the housing market following the subprime mortgage crisis of 2007/2008. And we are all really still paying the price for it. Worse even, we have learned nothing from it, but we are seeing consumer and housing credit bubbles that dwarf anything that has existed before.

But that's enough economics 101 for now.

War Plan Red, like the other similarly named American military plots, is a contingency plan for a worst case scenario no matter how unlikely, not something intended to be enacted under any usual circumstance. You may as well argue Batman is evil because he keeps a chunk of kryptonite in his utility belt.

I appreciate the detail you went to but that is pretty much why I said "largely". Credit was still a thing back then- Overselling on credit was one of the big factors leading to the crash of the 1920s was it not.

The difference is our modern economy has come to rely on it as both a dangerous crutch, and a crack filler to make the markets inherently less risky. In the modern economy, actual money is more or less interchangeable with credit.

All I meant is that the same motives of profit above all else existed. Companies didn't care if they were selling nerve agents to Nazi Germany, in the same way they don't care about selling them to Saddam or Assad in the modern day. The primary reason we fought Hitler was not to heroically save all the Jews, it was to attempt to maintain a delicate balance of power.

The secret really is in reading the waters where you plan to fish. And just plenty of "local knowledge". Try to make out where your target species might gather (read up on it on the web or watch a few youtube videos for that purpose), and then your focus is going to be all on how to fool that species into thinking there isn't an angler on the other end of that juicy worm or maggot that's floating in front of them in the water. And if you are new to a fishing spot, always strike up a chat with a local next to you who is fishing there as well. Anglers tend to like helping out fellow anglers and don't normally see them as competition.

I've been on fishing holidays to places like Sri Lanka and the Caribbean, where often you have dirt poor locals, and all the fishing gear they own is a spool of nylon monofilament with a couple of hooks on it, or one battered old fishing rod with a creaky old reel. And I saw them pull 30-pound fish out of the water like it was nothing. While I, with my carbon fibre fishing rod and brand name reel worth a combined £120, with teflon monofilament for £10 a spool, often ended up going home with almost nothing.

>I would imagine a nice rod helps in the same way a high end guitar feels nicer to play or an expensive pan is more predictable to use

It does make the experience more fun. I maintan that your rod really doesn't have to be top of the line, depending on your target fish, nearly any mid-range rod will do. But your reel is where it's at, and where quality is going to make a big difference. A £15 reel from your local shop just tends to feel cheap and not well put together. The bearings will be low-grade, it will be "clickety", and it won't run as smoothly. I wouldn't trust a reel like that to withstand anything large and nasty that has taken your hook (a good size conger or catfish might end up being the ultimate test for your reel). Being that your hands will spend a great deal of time fidgeting with the reel, you really should invest in something proper.

My favourite reel for some time has been my Mitchell Avocet Salt 4000. It's a midsized eggbeater reel, but you can still reel in a 25-pound fish with it no problem. It runs incredibly smoothly, if well looked after (I completely strip it down and regrease it at the beginning of every season), and build quality is flawless. It runs for about £40 now, but I bought it new when it came out for almost £60.

I recently discovered that some fishermen use remote controlled "bait boats" to survey the water (using sonar and fish finders). It is apparently very successful, but I'm not sure what the point of it all is.

I went on an offshore big game fishing trip in the Canaries once. They took us a little more than a mile out to sea, and they had a built-in sonar device on their boat. It was definitely convenient, because it allowed them to locate schools of tuna or other fish for us. In open water, with up to a mile of water column below you just a mile from shore, it's otherwise pretty unpredictable where there might be fish and where not.

But I don't see the point of a sonar device for a muddy shallow lake in Britain. It looks more like some sort of cutesy gadget. You will be much better off going by what you actually see. General knowledge about where you might find your target species in a lake and then taking it from there normally does the trick. In that sense, I think a sonar device like that is cheating.

What's the deal with undertaking?

Let's say you're on a three lane dual carriageway where the speed limit is 70mph. You're doing 70mph in the left lane and rapidly undertaking all the people in the middle and right lanes who somehow forgot that those lanes are for overtaking.

My motorbike instructor said it would be illegal to undertake these other road users and that it would fail you on the test and potentially get you a fine from traffic cops. The highway code backs it up. What's the logic behind that? There's obviously a danger in specifically getting into the left lane to overtake, but if your left lane just happens to be faster why are you supposed to keep to the speed of traffic on your right?

My car instructor didn't mention any of this and was fine with undertaking if your required lane just so happened to be going faster than the lane on your right. I guess on a motorbike you're far more fragile/hard to see so you're more at a danger from the bad drivers hogging the middle lane changing into your lane as your undertake.

You're simply observing the speed limit.

Sometimes I make a point of going all the way around them and pulling into the left-hand lane again in front of them, but I think it's only really an issue if you go past them in the left-hand lane and then pull in front of them.

>Rule 268

>Do not overtake on the left or move to a lane on your left to overtake. In congested conditions, where adjacent lanes of traffic are moving at similar speeds, traffic in left-hand lanes may sometimes be moving faster than traffic to the right. In these conditions you may keep up with the traffic in your lane even if this means passing traffic in the lane to your right. Do not weave in and out of lanes to overtake.

Straight from the horses mouth:
>Overtaking on the nearside (left) is legally acceptable if you are driving on a multi-lane carriageway in congested conditions, and the lane to the left is moving at a faster speed than lanes to the right.

My own understanding is that there is no specific offence related to undertaking, but it can constitute dangerous driving.

My instructor said it's because you're less likely to observe someone passing you on your left-Your left mirror is out of peripheral vision whereas your right one is always right there. I can see the logic in that and if you've ever had a cyclist zip past on the inside without you even noticing the cunt then you will understand too.

Nevertheless. It reminds me of a post I saw a lass make on facebook a few years ago complaining about people undertaking her on the motorway. Either way you look at it, if the road is clear and you're getting undertaken, you're going too slow.The only exception is if it's the kind of road where you have to be in a specific lane for a certain turn off etc.

As glib as it might sound, I think it's mostly just teenage rebellion.

When I was a kid, you could really outrage your dad by dyeing you hair green or listening to records with rude lyrics or going vegetarian. If you came home from university with a nose piercing or a tattoo, your mum might cry. If you really wanted to make your parents freak out, you could have a gay phase.

These days, most parents don't really give a shit about any of that stuff. If you're a student in 2018, your parents probably have tattoos and piercings of their own. When they say "music was better in my day", they might well be reminiscing about gurning their jaw off in Ibiza or climbing over the fence at Glastonbury. If they catch you with a bit of weed, there's a very real possibility that they'll ask you for a bit and start droning on about all the Thai stick and Lebanese black they used to smoke. I know a lot of women who would be delighted if their son turned out to be gay.

If you're a teenager with that innate teenage urge to rebel against your parents, what's left? Politics. Everyone gets riled up about politics. Social justice is perfect for this, especially if your parents are middle class liberals. By inventing a load of new minorities and new kinds of oppression, you get to be part of a special club of super good people who are fighting for the rights of oppressed minorities.

You get to be furious at your dad because he supports LGBT rights instead of LGBTQQIAAP+ rights. He's got no chance of keeping up with all the new pronouns because he's got better things to do than spend four hours a day on acrobat, so you'll always have something to throw in his face as proof that he's an old fogey. If you went the other way and joined the Young Conservatives, your parents would be ashamed of you; by going even further to the left of them, they have the niggling suspicion that maybe they should be ashamed of themselves.

I can't remember which thread I posted in about breaking my hand the other day, but I've just come back from the fracture clinic where I thought they'd just take the strapping off and send me on my way with an admonishment to be more careful next time but no, not today. The actual radiologist looked at the scans and found two fractures in a completely different place than the nurse had told me and I'm now in an ulnar cast for the next 4 weeks. I've only hand the damn thing on for 2 hours and I already want it off. Ugh.
