Could you elaborate on why valium is OK, but zoplicone isn't?

I've heard mixing benzos and alcohol is an easy way to accidentally kill yourself.

Not him, but... The so called Z-drugs are notorious for causing some percentage of users to do really weird shit in an almost somnambulant state. This internet classic is a good example of how shit can go bad http://www.bluelight.org/vb/threads/407727-Help-I-ve-made-a-big-mistake but I've heard of people doing even weirder shit while under the influence.

Alcohol is another drug that makes people do things that can often times seem out of character, especially when black out drunk. Mixing the two together seems, even to a veteran pill mixer like myself, like a really really bad idea.

Diazepam wears off before bedtime, Zoplicone has an 8 hour half life. I'd be reluctant to fall asleep under the influence of a Zop/alcohol mix as it's a more powerful sedative than Diazepam and I wont even fall asleep if I take that. I don't take massive doses and I try not to drink too heavily, so it works. I wouldn't recommend someone new to taking RPDs drink at all. You need to build up a tolerance to the sedation so you can pull yourself through it.

It's Russian roulette, any way you slice it. Combining benzos and alcohol is the single biggest cause of fatal accidental overdoses. They're metabolised in quite unpredictable ways and impair short-term memory. If you've cocked it up, you get no warning - you just fall asleep and never wake up. As stupid ideas go, it's right up there with letting Rolf Harris babysit.

How much of this fair land of ours have you lads actually visited?

I've just been thinking about it and there's so many places in Britain I've never particularly laid my eyes on, especially the scenery and landscapes of Scotland. What are the "hidden gems" here that you would recommend people really should visit at least once in their lives? Unhidden gems too, for that matter.

It took me a trip to Middlesbrough to realise how nice the rest of this country looks, thankfully I was only passing through.
It was a overcast day and I have fond memories of being in an Asda carpark looking at the smoke/fumes of a steel mill which was next to it, driving out of the city to find the "city" surrounded at all sides by one sprawling mess of pipe lines and what looked like oil refineries.
I remember the transporter bridge looking glum on the grey sky, it's blue paint work covered in grime and dirt but still blue.
Never again I promised myself, never again would I visit this hellhole.

>but I tell you Middlesbrough is a darn fine place to live.

Admittedly I've only stayed in Boro three times but the first time out travelodge was locked down because of nearby gunfire, the second time the van we were sleeping in was broken into, though they ran off when they noticed there was people in it, and the third time a drunk bloke with a baseball bat climbed into the back garden of the house we were in, and started screaming about his ex-missus that he presumably thought lived there.

The bridge is very inspiring, though.

I'm a learner motorcyclist with a displayed L plate and sticker. I just went for a short spin to post a letter, and even on a round trip lasting less than 10 minutes I got a bit of negative attention.

I admit that I'm generally touching only around 20mph around residential roads and I'm slow to change gear/a bit jerky with the clutch, as I'm still getting a feel for how to ride, but the hostility still surprised me.

An example, a young guy in a BMW was pulling out of a driveway and his car was hanging out halfway in the road. I'm about a hundred yards away, so I pull in the clutch, change down and slow down to let him out. He pulls out all the way but is shaking his head at me as he does so.

Though moments later I did get a thank you wave for letting a car pass the opposite way down a narrow street.

I don't get it. Is this sort of hostility standard on the roads? Maybe towards learners or bikes? Did I miss something, or is it always just chance whether you encounter bad attitudes?

I've never had a motorbike but I've cycled on roads a lot - you absolutely need to develop a thick skin. I'm sure the more you use the roads the more you'll see that some people are just arseholes when they get behind the wheel. Good luck with your test etc, anyway.

Do you know what I don't get?

Why people think gun controls are going to stop mass shootings in America. It's already against the law to go out and do a mass shooting. A mass killer isn't going to think "well, I was going to shoot all those kids but now I shouldn't be using this particular gun to do it it's become double illegal so I'd better not."

It's like when people were shouting "war crimes!" About what was going on in Syria. It's not like Assad and Isis and all those other fools were going to suddenly think "well, I was going to continue doing all these bad things but now it turns out they're war crimes I'd better stop. We've gone too far now."

/b/415501 Diversity in the workplace
Lads / Xirs etc

Where I work diversity is the new big thing. It's now mandatory for new starters to take a diversity course to understand the benefits of diversity. Thankfully I don't have to be indoctrinated alongside the rest of my co workers. There is a diversity group that has made a diversity calendar including such novel dates including Africa Day and International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. Mention try being gay in Africa to these people and before you know it there's a tap on your shoulder. People aren't allowed to speak out regarding this whilst the younger newer people seem to wallow in their echo chamber on the company comms webpage praising the diversity tropes.

/emo/26182 Pivoting.
Has anyone here ever made a dramatic career change?

I'm posting here rather than /job/ because I think it's more about my impulses than anything else. I feel like I have a problem, which is that whenever I achieve whatever goal I have in my mind for something, I immediately lose all interest in it. I studied music, and had my fingers in all sorts of pies while at uni for that, working in studios, recording bands, I even had a couple of producer credits on proper (but not hugely popular) albums. Yet as soon as I graduated I lost all interest. I ended up in a kitchen job and worked my way up in that industry fairly quickly, ending up as the executive chef for the chain I was working at. Once I'd established myself there and was doing well, I fucked it off to try and get a job designing mass produced food, and I worked a few contracts for that sort of thing.

I've never really wanted any of this. I just go along with something and feel the need to put my entire life on hold to achieve some arbitrary success or milestone. Then I get bored of it and start daydreaming out of the window. It doesn't seem like a healthy way to life.

I'm at the point now where I'm bored with the current industry and want to do what I had basically planned to do when I was about 17, which is computing.

I've always held an interest in that area and have picked up a fair bit in the field, and it's basically all I want to do now. My established career is fairly lucrative but I just don't care, and right now I'd rather be on 150 quid a week in some apprenticeship, racking up the certifications. Right now it feels like it's the solution to all my problems, and it might well be - I might finally find something I want to keep doing down this road. But at the same time, I fear it'll end up like everything else. Once my arse is in the chair I'm aiming for, I'll be fed up again.

I don't even know what I'm asking, here, to be honest. It just seems not normal to jump about like this, and to be thinking about diverting from very well paying, senior roles in a job market just because I've made it that far and got bored.

/b/414690 Anxiety Following QI Audience Participation
Hello everyone,

Maybe this should go in /emo/ but I don't know.

If any of you saw the recent QI episode (S15E09) 'Christmas' you may have found the part at the end when 1/2 of the audience suddenly stood up to sing carols, a bit of Christmas fun and joy.

As an audience member in the other half, I can tell you, it was anything but. Whilst many genuine audience members appear to be smiling, I can assure you, the sudden mobilization of that many people without due warning has left me paranoid and scared.

I was trying to make a GIF in Linux but it didn't work and now I'm too drunk for command line bullshit. Have a look at the photo attatched, this is moments after the 'salut' of the so called 'choir'.

Whilst many people in this picture are smiling (this is early on in the act so much of this smiling is smothered in ignorance) you can see that many people are highly concerned. One woman has even gone Super Saiyan. Remember, they covered this shot over with 'laughter'.

I'm not on any social media, so how do I reach out to other people effected by this?

The IRA were the daft militant wogs of yesteryear. Were Irish people vilified in the media during the 50s-90s, in the same way eskimos are today?

The average people just don't care and never cared- They only bought expensive hi-fis in the 80s and 90s because that was the equivalent of a iPad or whatever back then. The trendy gadget you need to have to consider yourself up to date.

The thing that winds me up about bluetooth speakers and shit headphones, though, is that if you're an average cunt who listens to average cunt top-40 music, all you can hear is vocals accompanied by some mosquito-hiss for the backing track. The majority of popular music now is derivative of dance music, so it's composed around massive sub-bass and big kicks, which you can never hear the majority of the time.

That's not even remotely true. Not least because we don't process movement by frames.

ITT: Workplace annoyances.

I'll get the ball rolling - having to bring in pastries on your birthday. I know it's cheaper if people bring their own in on their birthday instead of chipping in every time someone in the office has a birthday, but it's still fucking annoying having to fork out on your birthday.

Another lad here. I'm like you and like to understand stuff, but sometimes I go on a wikijourney and end up on some mathematical thingy, which defines itself with other mathematical thingies, and I click on them and it's all a bit *whoooshy*.

Here's an example:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poincar%C3%A9_conjecture

A sentence such as

"An equivalent form of the conjecture involves a coarser form of equivalence than homeomorphism called homotopy equivalence: if a 3-manifold is homotopy equivalent to the 3-sphere, then it is necessarily homeomorphic to it."

just stops me in my tracks. I imagine that's the kind of scenario otherlad is talking about.

The advantage of Linuxland is that it's an incredibly stable environment over time. If you learned Bash and Vim back in the early 90s, you could jump onto a modern Linux distro and be doing useful work almost immediately. It's not particularly easy to learn, but you rarely have to relearn anything just because the UI changed.

This is probably a discussion more suited to /g/ but I think that is perhaps what is stopping widespread adoption of it. It's not the Unix environment; implementations of it that completely destroy the standard workflow (i.e. Android or OS X (though it is admittedly possible to use a terminal in both, but it's not necessary)) have proven wildly successful.

Isn't that more you looking in the wrong place, though? If you don't particularly care about understanding the underlying mathematics, then you need a reference at a different level. I didn't understand that page, but instead of going to read about topology, I went to a different source, specifically, https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poincaré_conjecture

Which is much more my level of understanding.

/emo/23560 Minor angst and existential dread, Mk. I
We tend to have a lot of repeated threads here, but I also get the feeling people don't tend to post in /emo/ unless it's a big issue.

With this in mind I suggest that we have a thread for stuff that's got you down a bit and you need to get off your chest, without it being major enough to make an entire thread devoted to it. We can also use it as a go-to for minor relationship advice, work problems, social drama, and things like that.

Everyone gets down from time to time, let's put some Sisters of Mercy on and wallow together for a while.

Not quite lad. It was an upgrade where they sent me the wrong phone. I called them and said I'd like to cancel it and just get a new phone and new number separately (i.e from somewhere else). The bloke on the phone said it would be cancelled.

That was the end of that until I started getting letters asking me to pay for my business phone line and broadband dongle. Which was, needless to say, news to me.

So either way I doubt the T&Cs are even relevant, considering they planned to charge me for a dongle I was never told about, never received, nor asked for.

/job/12012 Employment misery
I've been stuck in the same job nearly six years. I'm pretty good at what I do but the work is unerringly bland without much in the way of deviation. This has inevitably caused me to become complacent but in a way that stymies any satisfaction I once found in a job well done.

Everybody tells me my employer doesn't know my worth but I just can't find myself to apply anywhere else. I'm probably just lazy but it's like I can't muster any motivation or even excitement at the prospect of even sorting my CV out to apply for something new even though it would inevitably be better in pretty much every respect.

Am I depressed? If so, does that make most of the working / lower-middle class workers I know depressed? How can you break the cycle?

Sorry for the spam. Originally posted this in /b/ like a daft sod.

There's lots of fucking in general apparently, now that plenty of birds work on the ships too. I'm sure there's more than enough bumming, but it might not be the most popular mode of fucking these days.
