24301 British vs Catholic Church vs other churches
what's the British church like?

I only know of the Catholic church, but one thing I do know is Presbyterian churches in the states are sometimes reorganized into the Catholic church.

We don't have the separation of church and state, so we have an official national church - The Church of England. They basically practice an extra-mild Christianity. In theory the closest American parallel would be the Episcopal Church, but the CofE is arguably closer to the Universal Unitarians. They don't really hold a strong position on much of anything apart from being nice. Most people in this country aren't particularly religious and only a tiny percentage are regular churchgoers, so most of our churches try very hard to be accessible to atheists and agnostics. The church has almost no political or social influence despite being deeply embedded in the establishment, because very few people are interested in what they think.

This interview with the Archbishop of Canterbury (the head of the Church of England) might shed some light.

We do have a variety of other churches. There's a significant Methodist tradition here, a smattering of Pentecostalists and Baptists, but the only churches that are actually growing are foreign-influenced Evangelical churches and Mormonism. The major Evangelical churches are strongly influenced by American Evangelism (although they tend to be less vocal about things like abortion), but the racial aspect is very different. We didn't have slavery, so nearly all black people here are immigrants or the descendents of recent immigrants. In major cities, you'll find dozens of different churches of various nationalities - Polish, Romanian, Congolese, Ghanaian, Angolan, you name it. There aren't really "black" churches as you'd recognise them in the US, because there isn't a singular black culture.

>There is no evidence that Edgar married or produced children apart from two references to an "Edgar Adeling" found in the Magnus Rotulus Pipae Northumberland (Pipe rolls) for the years 1158 and 1167.[28] Historian Edward Freeman, writing in The History of the Norman Conquest of England, says that this was the same Edgar (aged over 110), a son of his, or some other person known by the title "Ætheling". This is the only evidence that the male line of England's original royal family continued beyond Edgar's death.[3]

24267 UK.. I've come back, and I need your help
I am a 24 year old American who has never had a job because I am a socially anxious diagnosed autist with no frens and my father keeps breathing down my neck to get one.. I've tried my hardest to find and get one but no one cares. And I would do other things like go to university but I'm a disorderly idiot at that and I can't do the military either because I don't want to fight for Israel plus I'd fail at that because I'm physically weak. I would create a business but I lack fuck all for that as well.

What do I do, UK? I'm so fucked...

Yeah, but handing in CVs you could get an interview for a job that hasn't been advertised or at least one that hasn't been advertised some place where candidates are machine gunning in applications. The competition would be much less stiff.

If you're sending 100 applications a day there's a very good chance you're doing it wrong anyway.

Nah, that's very much doing it right; at least for entry level jobs, which sounds like the sort of advice this thread pertains to. Usually a job that hasn't been advertised is something much more specialised, so while there might be less competition it's less likely you'd actually be qualified for it. That's not just a needle in a haystack, it's a diamond ring of exactly your size in a cornfield.

There's a myth about copy/pasting applications meaning you'll get binned every time. It's got a grain of truth to it, but not quite. Nowadays, applications are scanned by software multiple times before they even make it to a person; if you have the right keywords and structure in there that the software looks for you've won half the battle.

Wasting your time writing up a fresh application from scratch for every shite call centre job is a waste of time thanks to the same principle as the hunter analogy.

Not him, but if I got handed a paper CV that someone had brought in in person I'd pay it much more attention that the dozens of electronic applications I had to process that day. You're probably right about the numbers game but I think you hit a point where you've applied to all the potential jobs you can online - pounding the pavements is a perfectly good decision at some stage. Not least to get you out the house for a bit.

I'm flying with these fuckers soon and honestly I thought it would be hard to find an airline I'd despise more than Ryanair.

They've changed their baggage policy such that, you can only take a small backpack into the cabin, free of charge. For a trolley bag you have to pay extra.

I have a trolley bag that can be worn as a backpack but it's 4cm too wide and 10cm too tall to be within the free requirements. So it'd be a £30 charge to take it on board.

Do you lads have any experience with sneaking bags onto WizzAir flights? A friend of mine is risking it with his saying they hardly ever check but I've seen some horror stories online, where they force you to pay £60 or they refuse you boarding.

>What sort of flight wants empty seats though?
Two reasonably common scenarios:

Slot savers: You have a bunch of slots at a major airport and use them to fly a seasonal route. When it's not profitable to fly the route, you don't want to fly it, but you also don't want to lose the slot, so you use the slot to fly a short regional route that's probably already saturated, or if you really can't be bothered to pay for ground crew, just fly empty to somewhere that's close enough and quiet enough to get back.

Over-range: You want to fly a long-haul route, but you don't have any long-range aircraft, and couldn't reasonably fill one. You fly it with a smaller plane, but can't take a full load becauase of the amount of fuel required.

Never in human history has there been a nation so manipulative, pathetic and evil as the British Empire. It survived only because of its vast navy and “keeping the balance of power”, weakening the continental states then shifting their attention to more conspicuous, “real” threats like Napoleon.

Don’t forget it couldn’t have made it without constantly allying with other nations either, it could never do things alone against other formal Western powers.

Also it has precipitated much of the world’s problems, the ones we face now such as a perpetual war in the Middle East, screwing up the EU, destabilizing regimes all
across 3rd world countries, making countries poorer than what they already are, something we Americans do tol (don’t get me wrong) but you were the first.

Your nation should’ve been destroyed, that is the only logical conclusion that any good person can make of your twisted, psychopathic history.

To be honest, on other imageboards, this sort of sentiment is now far more common than it was five years ago; so I usually just expect people to be genuine when they complain about us (though I've found the manner in which they do it laced with a lot of cognitive dissonance).

It hasn't massively devolved since the last major devolution in 2013-2015. Yet.
Since the last presidential elections (which, frankly, at least somewhat look like a large-scale psyop) it's all hanging by a thin thread. Feels like it's about to crash down once again.

To be fair America is one great big fuck off country and some places are infinitely better than others. There are places where a week seems like a year and even a day feels like too long and there are places where you think "you know, I could settle down here and bring up a kid", and most everything in between.

One of my growing list of regrets is never being able to tick "properly explore new york / manhatten" off my bucket list. Sigh.
