According to an industry insider present, the environment secretary was left reeling by a briefing from the Food and Drink Federation that of the 21 ingredients that make up a Mars bar manufactured at their factory in Slough, two imported products go off within a few days.

In the event of no deal, gridlock at the port of Dover would effectively shut down one of the country’s main routes for food imports. The ingredients couldn’t be stockpiled. The experts told Gove the UK’s entire supply of Mars bars would run out within two weeks.

pack your mars bars, lads.

I've looked it up and only 19 ingredients are listed in a mars bar. Sugar, Glucose Syrup, Skimmed Milk Powder, Cocoa Butter, Cocoa Mass, Sunflower Oil, Milk Fat, Lactose and Protein from Whey (from Milk), Whey Powder (from Milk), Palm Fat, Fat Reduced Cocoa, Barley Malt Extract, Emulsifier (Soya Lecithin), Salt, Egg White Powder, Milk Protein, Natural Vanilla Extract, Milk Chocolate contains Milk Solids 14% minimum, Milk Chocolate contains Vegetable Fats in addition to Cocoa Butter.

Good fucking luck sourcing the two top secret unlisted ingredients we can only get from Europe.

ITT: Weird dreams you've had lately.

I actually dreamed last night that I was in Australia, visiting the two blokes from the Foster's adverts in their beach hut. Sure enough, they gave me a Foster's, and I said "cheers, guys"... and then one of them said to me "oh no mayt, we don't say cheers heere. We say 'You little ripper!'"

Quite bizarre... has this dream got any deeper meaning, or have I just been watching too much telly lately?

I had a dream that I was at a self service canteen type of restaurant, in the middle of lunch service, and suddenly they closed down the counter with the hot food for no apparent reason by putting a sign over it that said "We're sorry, this counter will be closed for 45 minutes". I was a bit upset that they would do that right in front of my nose, and then I moved down the line a bit and suddenly I slipped on a bit of water on the floor and fell right on my arse. I was furious and demanded to speak to the manager, but then for some reason I woke up.

I will never know what the manager would have said to me as an excuse for the shit way his restaurant was being run.

/news/16485 UK austerity has inflicted 'great misery' on citizens, UN says

The UK government has inflicted “great misery” on its people with “punitive, mean-spirited, and often callous” austerity policies driven by a political desire to undertake social re-engineering rather than economic necessity, the United Nations poverty envoy has found.

Philip Alston, the UN’s rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, ended a two-week fact-finding mission to the UK with a stinging declaration that levels of child poverty were “not just a disgrace, but a social calamity and an economic disaster”, even though the UK is the world’s fifth largest economy,

About 14 million people, a fifth of the population, live in poverty and 1.5 million are destitute, being unable to afford basic essentials, he said, citing figures from the Institute for Fiscal Studies and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. He highlighted predictions that child poverty could rise by 7% between 2015 and 2022, possibly up to a rate of 40%.

“It is patently unjust and contrary to British values that so many people are living in poverty,” he said, adding that compassion had been abandoned during almost a decade of austerity policies that had been so profound that key elements of the postwar social contract, devised by William Beveridge more than 70 years ago, had been swept away.

>There will always be people at the bottom of the scrapheap and it's up to you to ensure you don't end up there; there's no excuses.
See, this tips right back in the other direction. It might be cathartic to say "there's no excuses" to avoid confronting that life is bollocks, but if there's always going to be someone at the bottom of the scrapheap then clearly there is an excuse: It's inevitable. It's baked into the system. "Just be better at competing to not wind up in that position!" leads you to the position we're in now of insecure, unknown hours, low-paid work so that you can be marginally above the very bottom.

Just because you can't point to one individual and blame them doesn't mean it's not the fault of the system we've got at the moment, and the responsibility of those in power to change that system to better meet human needs.
Alternatively, let's say fuck it and go back to organising ourselves like the Romans.

The structural existence of the poor. When you move away from the mathematical definition (which is just an attempt to approximate it), there isn't strictly a need for people to be in relative poverty. You could theoretically have a society in which everyone is able to live around the average standard of living, where nobody's struggling to get by. Once we're saying "He works 30 hours a week and can't afford a holiday to Australia without saving for a year!" rather than "He works 50 hours a week and can't afford a new Freezer!" we'll know we've arrived.

Alternatively, and much less theoretically, the arbitrary and luck-based structure of opportunity. Actually try to give everyone a fair chance and encouragement through some big, integrated, overarching guidance, education and employment system. Make it so that if you work hard and try your best, you really will get ahead, and make people know the avenue is open.

We still have a labour surplus. When everyone learns a trade, who the hell is going to stack the shelves at Tesco? When we've got labour scarcity, Tesco will bid up wages and all will be well - but until then you're pushing on a string. You can't say "Everyone has a chance to do better!" and then build a society dependent on some people not doing any better.

Common scenario:

Somebody wants to hire an employee to do the job of X, which may well require a uni degree and five years of experience. The catch is, when you go there for a job interview as somebody who has the degree in X and five, or any number of years of experience, they will tell you that your (reasonable) salary aspirations are far beyond what they are prepared to pay you, and for the meager pay they want to give you, you are going to have to work 50 to 60 hours. Or if you exceed the criteria mentioned in the ad, they will say you are overqualified for the job in the first place.

It's pretty much standard folklore nowadays that many companies want highly skilled staff at the biggest possible discount. And they will blag you into it any way they can. And now let's talk again about how being poor or at least not earning what you are worth is your own fault for not trying hard enough. To avoid going on the dole, many people will eventually cave in and take up a job like that where the work conditions aren't short of an insult to their education and qualification. Precisely because they are ambitious, they will agre to taking up a shit job in the distant hope that somewhere down the line they will get to make something better of themselves again. And employers are exploiting it.

>It's pretty much standard folklore nowadays that many companies want highly skilled staff at the biggest possible discount.
As a highly skilled individual currently looking for work, I can confirm this. I've had more than one employer come back and say they can't meet my very reasonable salary expectations. Conferring with peers has confirmed that, without exception, said employers were not the sort I'd want to work for. By contrast, those employers that were of the sort I'd want to work for invariably turned me down because they didn't have a vacancy I'd fit into.

And once you've taken the bait and agree to work for much less than you are worth, they will keep telling you that if you put your back into it, you will get a raise in no time at all. But then when the time comes to ask for that raise on account that you've proved yourself as a good employee, they will tell you that the company's current situation doesn't allow it, or any excuse they manage to come up with. And so the cycle continues...

/uni/6378 75% crap
I am studying for an HND in networking, Cisco stuff and whatever.

I had to admit that 75% of my course is utter, absolute crap. One of my tutors is extremely serious and professional, he's in charge of all technical subjects. All the others are totally useless, the kind of people that never left academia in their lives and survive by "teaching" things with absolutely no professional value. All that they can do is recite inane Powerpoint slides and write useless assignments that can be done with a Google search. I asked to drop some of the useless subjects and to put some useful course instead, everyone at school looked at me like I was an idiot.

Is that normal? Did I end up in a shit school? I resolved to teach myself something useful, but I am still forced to attend classes of NO FUCKING VALUE. Why?

BTW, I spoke with my course mates. Never seen such a bunch of thick, inbred, useless sheep shaggers in my life. They managed to get an HNC in Networking, but they do not even know how to turn on a goddamn router. At least, I will not have to fear their competition in the workfplace!

Recruiters are scum. Hiring managers for the kind of companies you want to work for are often very interested in self-taught candidates, because they know just how utterly useless a lot of graduates are.

I do electronic engineering and we were taught that in first year. I was amazed at how little CS students seem to do; stuff we did in third year about computer architecture far exceeded what they ever did, and stuff we did in first year is third year for them.

Well, I can give you my current understanding and if I'm wrong about anything I'm happy to be corrected.

They're both sections of RAM set aside for program execution that respectively deal with static and dynamic memory. What this means in practice is that the stack is faster and more procedural as the size of all objects is known at compile time and when moving between them the stack pointer is simply incremented or decremented accordingly as LIFO is systemically applied. The heap, as its name suggests, is larger and less structured so generally slower, although the degree to which this manifests is dependant on the processor architecture. In compensation it is more flexible, not only capable of handling larger objects but also ones whose size isn't constant at compile time. For instance, in C++ one cannot create an array with a variable as a size without having to employ pointer syntax that places the array on the heap.

The heap can also be less secure since in languages without garbage collection - again, C++ would be a prime example of this - improper use can lead to memory leakage if objects aren't manually deleted. For programs that handle sensitive information this would be a security issue. Ideally I'd put as much onto the stack as possible for the sake of performance, particularly any computationally costly algorithms while reserving the heap for objects of uncertain size like user inputs.

If there are any glaring mistakes or gaps in my knowlege please let me know. Also why is it so strange for a webpage to be coded in Java? It sounds odd to me since most websites are a mixture of JS, PHP, HTML/CSS and things like Ruby while Java (I think) is generally used for Windows desktop applications but am I missing something else?

OP again here.

I had a good talk with the tutor, the only teacher that made some sense. I learned something interesting: the good part of the syllabus, the Cisco qualifications and the lab work, are completely optional. Some tutors decide to put those parts in from the kindness of their hearths, not because the department for education tells them so. However, all the useless part of the course are made mandatory by the Pearsons.

So, the government is actively pushing to make the courses as useless as possible. The few colleges that manage to teach useful skills and qualifications are doing it against the will of the gov't.

By the way, if you are in a crappy college you can get a Level 5 networking qualification and not be able to console into a router with a laptop. Now I understand why so many recruiters laugh off people with HND/HNC, many of them have absolutely no marketable skills. Fuck.

You're about 80% there.

Using too much stack is generally a bad idea, as each process (thread) only has so much stack allocated to it. If you allocate huge buffers on the stack and then do some nested function calling you're going to run out of stack space and go boom.

The stack should be used purely for singular variables like integers or pointers.

In C++11+ there is almost no excuse to use the stack for storage.

If you want to store data in a super fast and easy place to be found then you can use the .bss / .data segments of your executable, albeit increasing the size of the eventual program.

Everything that is greater than the size of a pointer on your architecture should probably be stored in the heap. Compiler optimisations and wonderfully architectured heaps such as Windows LFH and things like jemalloc for *nix mean that the old overhead of dlmalloc() is a thing of the part.

tldr - the bottleneck in your code isn't going to be the heap implementation written and tested by probably millions of people.

Cooking instructions are maddeningly verbose to me. I just read an article on how to cook rice that somehow stretched to 200 words, when it could have been summarised in "rinse if you want to, cover it with water in a lidded pot and boil it until it's soft".

Are there any decent websites that just tell you, stick X in gredient in Y pan for Z minutes? What's the cooking equivalent of a Hayne's manual?

Cooking blogs have to write an entire article about the recipe, as a small list of ingredients and a method alone would tank their search engine prioritisation. Google doesn't seem to like to push 'low effort' webpages, which is what the algorithms see a recipe alone as.

I've never seen one of these sites that doesn't, somewhere on the page, display said simple list of ingredients and a step-by-step list of the method.

I haven't had been in a relationship or had sex for over 2 and a half years.

There's probably lots of things factoring into this. A year and a half of it I was working in a small office, not really interacting with many new people. I also spent immense amounts of time studying, saving money and planning for the future during my free hours. This has paid off, now, but I think there's more to it. There's an underlying issue here.

I know it's not down to my appearance or social skills, because even with this ascetic kind of life I would still occasionally get interest from the odd work colleague or friend-of-a-friend.

I think it's more down to the fact my last two relationships were really traumatic in a way I haven't fully acknowledged. One simply cut off contact without preamble and never gave a reason why. The other cheated during a period of long distance, and let me find out by myself after months of lying.

It's made me extremely reluctant to reach out to people, even if I find them attractive. I'm a sensitive person, anyway, but combined with that rough history I find myself overanalysing the words and actions of others looking for signs that I might get hurt again. Even worse, the more I look at relationships as a whole, the more I realise this kind of thing isn't atypical in the slightest (you could even argue I've got off lightly in terms of baggage). I've started to find how people treat eachother a little disgusting, and even dangerous.

I really value love and close one-to-one relationships. I have a degree of closeness with friends, but there's no physical intimacy at all, nor a sense of really experiencing life "together".

This leaves me with a painful ambivalence that's hard to let go of. I truly want to meet people and believe I have a lot to give, but I am also hyper-cautious and finding myself becoming increasingly critical of people and bitter about what happened -- making it very unlikely I'll ever get past those tricky first hurdles with any new person.

I've been telling myself that I've just been focusing on myself and my career. I have had plenty of success there. But that's not the reason I've remained single.

I realise you might not be able to reply yet but I'll wait for an answer. What part of revealing in your misery do you think is positive? There is nothing to beneficial to being long suffering and it isn't a contest. Please don't take what I just said the wrong way. I want you to be happier and more satisfied with life, but you aren't doing yourself any favours by sneering at others, you can't get out of a hole by digging yourself deeper into it and trying to pull down others who are trying to get out.

Does it? Or are you irrationally embittered? If I brake my toe and fucking hurts the fact you lost your leg in a car accident years before doesn't mean I'm not allowed to be in pain and mention that I am. If i lose my child you shouldn't be telling me a hundred children starved to death in Bangladesh so i can't complain.

What you are doing is a form of narcissism. You are thinking only of how things apply directly to you. But paradoxically you You don't look to your achievements you look to how much you have suffered. No one is allowed to suffer unless they have it worse then you. You despise sympathy others receive because you are envious of it. You feel you deserve that sympathy but no one is giving it to you. None of this is constructive to helping you feel better. No one can actually help you if you wallow in your misery. At the moment you are just forcing yourself lower.

If you want help ask for it. Don't just be bitter because someone else did and they got it.

Any of you lads have or have had travel sickness and beat it?

I'm starting a job in January that is further than my current and I'd want to use that time on public transport doing something useful like reading. The problem is I can go about 1 minute of reading while moving before I feel dizzy and get a headache. I'm fairly certain it would then evolve into a migraine.

Looking out the window will get fairly boring.

A few practical suggestions spring to mind. If you need glasses, wear them. Similarly, books with larger and easier to read print are likely to be less aggravating. Experiment with facing different directions and places on the vehicle and see what works best for you. If you don't want to take medication, I've found ginger really helps as an antiemetic.

The nausea, in my experience, is actually caused by trying to hold the book too steady. Your inner ear feels your body moving, but you're focused on a book you're doing your best to hold still. It's these mixed signals that make you feel sick. Personally I relax my hands and arms so the book moves along with any bumps or swaying.

I got over it just through repeated exposure. When I started taking flying lessons I would get it quite badly, but by the time I got my licence it was no longer an issue.

It would be unpleasant to put yourself through it, but you could find that by just forcing yourself to do it every day (stopping well before you actually vomit of course) could get your body used to the sensation.

>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.”

Life rarely takes the piss out of itself like this. It almost sounds like the plot of a South Park episode.

Minecraft or human interaction? I have minecraft on PC, haven't played it in ages. I've been playing Warframe a bit though, it's a decent multiplayer game.

Amazon sent me a motorcycle lift instead of a set of dumbells and weights. I'm probably just going to flog it on eBay rather than complain seeing as it retails at about a tenner more than the weights would have.

Remember that eBay take 10% of whatever you sell your thing for, and you probably aren't likely to get retail value for it. That'll probably wipe out that extra tenner.

>A homeless man who stole a purse and a phone from victims of the Manchester Arena attack has admitted theft.

>Chris Parker, 33, was initially dubbed a hero after claiming he comforted a seriously injured girl. CCTV footage played to Manchester Crown Court showed him wandering between stricken victims. He kept returning to injured Pauline Healey, whose granddaughter lay dying nearby, before leaning over her and taking her handbag to steal her purse.

I don't get why bleeding heart do-gooders bleat on about the homeless. They're all scratters who are on the streets through choice, usually because they choose not to stay in a hostel as they know they wouldn't be allowed to do drugs there.

Beleagured Theresa May 'to quit as Prime Minister on August 30, 2019 in a bid to stop a leadership challenge' - as she tries to calm rivals with a prosecco party at Chequers

Theresa May is said to have revealed the date she will quit as Prime Minister - giving herself two years to see Brexit through first.

She has chosen Friday August 30th 2019 as the day she will step down from 10 Downing Street, it has been reported.

It comes amid a major charm offensive by Mrs May in a bid to win the support of her MPs and avoid an awkward leadership challenge.

This man is going to become Prime Minister on 1st September 2019 and it's going to be fucking awesome.

I'm in the market for a laptop, but I'm not sure if I can get away with meeting all my criteria.

- It'll be purely for business, the most demanding thing it will be opening is numerous Chrome tabs.
- It needs to run Windows software, with MS Office.
- I want it to be lightweight and no bigger than an A4 pad.

Is there any chance of me getting this for around £200?

I've been seeing refurbished X series Thinkpads from as little as £100, but maybe this is dodgy?

Do you lads know of something better?

Hello again lads. I still haven't bought a new bastard laptop and have been struggling along with the X100e. It's unusably slow.

At some point I intend to drop £300 - £400 on a decent one. The other ThinkPads looked great, but I've also been tempted away by the IdeaPad.

That aside, is there anything I can do to make the x100e perform better until I'm sure I can spunk the money? It's crippled with running a few tabs with Microsoft Edge in Windows 10 at the moment. Any recommendations?

Install an SSD, if it doesn't already have one.
Install more RAM, if it's not already maxed out.
Install a lightweight Linux distribution if you swing that way, such as Xubuntu.

If you want to stick with Windows, try disabling all graphical effects and the like.

As said, an SSD is a huge performance boost in older machines. You can also try to blast out any dust that might (definitely will) be caking the cooling fans and vents, as if it's running hot enough the CPU might be thermal throttling too, I've seen that happen a lot.

It probably isn't worth upgrading. The x100e has a feeble single-core Athlon Neo processor with a PassMark score of 409. It was piss-poor in 2010 and it's utterly unusable today. By comparison, the slowest processor in Intel's current desktop lineup has a Passmark score of 3,269 and an i7-7700k scores over 12,000. No matter what you do, it's grossly bottlenecked by that dog of a processor.

You don't need to spend £300 to get something vastly quicker than your current machine. A Thinkpad X220 will set you back about £120; the default processor in that machine is an i5-2520M, which has a Passmark score of 3,588. The very cheapest Chromebook would be a significant upgrade, as would any old laptop with an Intel Core-series processor.

A lightweight Linux distribution might help a bit. If you're not using an adblocker, for the love of god install uBlock Origin - ads and ad trackers have a huge CPU load. Firefox Reader Mode is very useful on slow machines, because it strips out all of the CSS and Javascript.

Funny how far not being a knob will get you in the workplace.

We've one woman at our place who insists that when she leaves she doesn't want a collection or a do. She says she doesn't want a fuss. The reality of it is she knows no fucker would come out for it because she's a horrible cunt, and doesn't want the embarrassment.

Some people genuinely don't like a fuss being made and would rather keep themselves to themselves. I worked with someone who was fairly quiet and private who lived next to a canal so we all joked was the pusher and he didn't like attention on him. We managed to convince him to go to a nearby pub for lunch on his last day, just a few of us, and he was chuffed with his send off in the end.
