Lads are you worried about the coronavirus?

I've purposely not read up about it. Mainly because the SARS, Swine Flu, Bird Flu and Ebola threat was over-hyped by the media. Prediction wise, I think after several months it will be contained and everyone will eventually forget about it.

What do you think?

/101/28571 Minor Rants and Piss-Offs, Mark VIII
It appears largethreadmodlad has also locked the previous iteration of this thread; Mark VIII it is, then.

I take perfect care of my nails. I don't bite them, I cut in the standard flat formation every 3-5 days, and scrub under them in the shower. So why the actual fuck are my cuticles bleeding? Putting the plaster over to catch the blood means I can't play my bass properly, and that pisses me off.

I don't think my scrum master (yes, they're actually called that) would appreciate me telling him that his job isn't particularly necessary. I might moot changing it to a Monday-Wednesday-Friday structure, but we have client-side people who sporadically join in and I think they like knowing they can check our progress on any random morning.

Besides, while I'm a specialist, I'm still the newest joiner on my team. I'd rather not rock the boat since I have no interest in office politics and prefer to just do my work.

We read out sales from about 10 different areas every Monday to Wednesday. The best part is that most of the people doing the reading are reasonably shy or not wonderful at English. It tends to be quite enduring to stand through and I stand far away so I often don't hear anything. There are days when people read out the figures entirely wrong and we all just let it happen.

I can see the potential for 1-2 morning meetings a week but they really should be short and sweet.

There's a thing in aviation like that, where everyone gets on a conference call once a week just to read out the number of delays they've had that week and why. They're stopped because of this bollocks and I hope they never come back - they make no sense. The delays are already common knowledge and fed back to the airline's operations departments by email, movement messages, and ACARS feeds daily anyway, so these calls are, I assume, literally there to shame people, or because upper management are too lazy or thick to look at the reports.

Never organise catch-ups on a Monday. You won't have much of an idea of how your weeks going to go and therefore the whole team is so focused on not looking a dosser that they don't listen to other people. Likewise, nobody wants to do a meeting on a Friday - don't be a dick.

I don't work in programming but I do work in an industry with too many managers. What worked for me was to moan about it with other people so that when you send the email it has some weight to it without naming names. Then you convince them to make the meeting on a Tuesday afternoon when everyone is so busy that it never happens again.

I honestly can't stand it any more.

The internet is breaking my faith in the human species and I need a break from it. Doesn't matter where you go. Chan boards? Infested with alt-right mouthbreathers. Reddit? The opposite brand of people with mind-worms so powerful they think the holodomor was a good thing. Video game sites? Corporate shills and pay-pig knuckle draggers. Obscure nerd hobby forum? Autism so powerful you can't even risk making a joke. Twitter? Let's not even go there, honestly.

Talking to randoms online has always felt like a beneficial exposure to differing ideas and opinions, but nowadays I'm starting to feel like participating in anything resembling the typical modern social media culture simply isn't good for me. Maybe I'm getting old, maybe everyone is just a dickhead, maybe I'm just a dickhead; but I used to be one of the people with ideals and some hope to change the world for the better. Ten years on, the kids have decided what I believe in is outdated, and that I'm pretty much the reincarnation of Hitler for every questioning the new orthodoxies of thought.

I'll be the first to admit I don't exactly have a busy social life in the real world. I'm working on changing that, but there are times I'm not feeling up to it, so I rely on the internet as a crutch. It's those times where I feel incredibly isolated without it, but exposing myself to the widespread toxicity of the internet at large any more is almost certainly unhealthy by this point.

What can I do?

As someone that's been on a certain imageboard on-and-off for what'll be ten years in 2020, I know how you feel, m8. I hate these people about as much as those redditors you mentioned. I just saw that this meme (a meme that was part of the reason I really grew sick of the place) is apparently now so ubiquitous that it's trended on knowyourmeme:

Maybe I'm also just getting older, but the lack of any kind of civility online is just tiring to me, now. The internet has rarely ever been civil, but *at least* I knew there was an element of freedom of expression, as older people still didn't quite understand what kids did. Now we're not even gonna have that. All the places I've browsed for years are full and under a corporate thumb that once wasn't there, and if they are there, the place quickly becomes full of childish ideologues and oh-so hilarious memers.

What I will say is that I agree very much with this lad >>29030. I'm very lucky that I have a friend who thinks similarly to me, but he's admittedly also a lot more socially mature, less anxious. He thinks many of the things I think, but he's also just a kind, grounded person. He was once a lot more addicted to chans and the internet, but he hasn't been for years, now. He focuses on the outside world, and he just seems happier for it. Thinking of him keeps me remembering that the world outside, at least as it currently is, doesn't really give a shit about most of us, and that those that concern themselves with the internet too much are the ones ultimately doing themselves harm. They think they're so smart, so learned, so funny, but they're rarely making the difference that they think they are.

I guess to just summarise: The world does keep turning. And unless we hear nuclear sirens going off or you see tanks rolling down your street; then you've got the rest of your life to go out and enjoy it. I'd recommend getting the money together to visit national parks, forests, museums, etc. Don't mind the weather, just give it a go. It'll at least remind you that you're alive.

In the space of fifteen years, online discourse has gone from isolated communities astonished to discover how many different points of view there are around the world, to becoming a hyperpartisan, hyperpolitical clusterfuck.

I don't post much any more, because I can tell that taking sense isn't doing any good. And that's, reassuringly, why arguing on the internet has got worse- because millions of us have attained enlightenment and bugged out of it. There are lots of us out there but we don't realise it because we've stopped communicating our presence.

I think a lot of us have used the internet to cathartically purge ourselves of a lot of the ugliness we see in others and have gone on to start families and have careers and such.

Meaningful conversation with the good guys tends to be brief. The good guys don't argue. They politely inform one another of facts, briefly research to confirm veracity, and thank each other for shoring up one another's ignorance. Conversation with the bad guys is a Sisyphean exercise in masochism, where they learn nothing and the only lesson you can learn is to not bother. So their rambling bleats tend to dominate message boards and such like.

Try getting pen pals. I had one for a while a few years back where we solely communicated via email and I found it rather cathartic. A nice break from everything else online where you're generally getting instant responses and quickly disposable stimulation; you can properly reflect and think about what you're trying to say.

Right, with social distancing right now, it's going to be pretty rough going for many a younglad. Anybody who's not in a relationship will pretty much have to just keep knocking a few out every day.

Which is all the more reason to expect that once the coronavirus restrictions have been lifted, people are just going to become lost in a continuous, several months long, booze and drug fuelled countrywide bonk of everybody with everybody.

And that could then actually go a long way giving even the most self-pitying shut ins a shot at getting laid.

I've finally got around to trying the No Chick Strips from Iceland's vegan range. A lot of brands that try to replicate the texture of chicken with layers of layers of hydrated soya protein fuck it horribly by making it too chewy or too watery but these were spot on. In fact, they might be the best veggie chicken I've tried but they should be at that price.

I've recently been having dreams where I've been living entirely alternate lives.

The other day I woke up feeling like Arnold Rimmer in "Thanks for the memory" after having spent the whole night dreaming about a perfect girlfriend who never existed.

Last night I was dreaming that I was in uni as a foreign exchange student. Not only were all the popular birds dead into me and my ability to speak their language but I was training with and doing private lessons daily with one of my jiu jitsu heroes.

I don't think I have to get on the old ouija board to Sigmund to figure out what's going on in my subconscious lately.

You seem to have completely misread the post you are replying to, which is itself a refutation of yours.

That post is saying that the verdict means the prosecution's case is so rubbish that there is virtually no charge to answer to begin with.

that was my first post in the thread, i didn't bother to read the rest of it.


"Both in the "solemn" and the "summary" acquittals, not proven is interpreted as indicating that the jury or judge, respectively, is not convinced of the innocence of the accused; in fact, they may be morally convinced that the accused is guilty, but do not find the proofs sufficient for a conviction. One reason for this is the rule that in such cases the evidence for the prosecution must be corroborated in order to permit a conviction. Thus, there might be a single plaintiff or witness for the prosecution, which the jury or judge believes is both truthful and trustworthy, but no other witness or circumstances against the accused. By Scottish law, the accused then should be acquitted, but often will be so by the verdict not proven.[1]"

that's not the same thing as having 'no charge to answer'. I think you're happily choosing your own interpretation here.

The prosecution gambit was to get him under the Moorov Doctorine - if a lot of people say he's a sexual criminal, then all of their claims (absent other evidence) can corroborate one another and be entered as evidence. What actually happened is when they went trawling for claims (interviewing over 400 women) they had to really reach, drawing in things like "tugging on hair" to try and get a reasonable number of cases in. I think including farcical charges like that undermined their whole case, the jury thought it was bollocks and threw the whole lot out.

The whole business with SNP factionalism around this is very interesting. Sturgeon clearly wasn't on his side and expressed no gladness he'd been found innocent (unlike some other SNP representatives), the Scottish Government has already been sued by Salmond for cocking up their internal investigation into his behaviour - but Sturgeon gets on with the civil servant who was in charge of it and re-appointed them. It'll be interesting to see what evidence of a conspiracy Salmond presents, having claimed he's got it but couldn't enter it into the trial.

Is there a reason I can sometimes visit on mobile Internet without any trouble, but sometimes his the network's adult content filter and have to fire up a VPN?

It seems to have swung back and forth a couple of times in the last few months.

I have the same thing, with Three? They seem to let it slide until I try to post something.

I'm not the admin but I'm willing to bet it's an ISP issue not a .gs one.

So am I the only one who is getting a bit annoyed by this whole Greta Thunberg cult, or am I just too much of a cold hearted cynic that the world would be better off without?

I don't doubt the legitimate concern of her generation over climate change, after all it will fall to them to sort out the utter fucking mess that we have left the planet in, but all the awards that she is now being showered with are IMO just middle aged and old people's guilt over their own failure to save the planet's climate despite having had decades of prior warning, and who lost their way and succumbed to high carbon footprint consumerism somewhere between 1990s road protest villages and today's school runs in a 4x4. None of it feels sincere or genuine, it's more like, yeah, just take all these awards and shut the hell up already.

And parents whose children now protest every Friday or so are now engaging in pissing matches on twitter and Instagram to show off which one of their kids gets the most involved. As one commenter said, nothing good has ever come of a youth protest movement that was applauded by parents.

> The movement behind the walkouts, Fridays for Future, has told strikers to conduct protests virtually due to the pandemic, which Thunberg said was a collective decision taken at an emergency remote meeting.

How do you do a virtual strike against school while in lockdown? Do you actively go outside or do you just put on a very stern face indeed and livestream yourself playing videogames (because you were doing your schoolwork at home the rest of the week, honest).

It's all such total nonsense at this point. Utter tosh.

Pretty obvious and easy to do if your school is doing virtual lessons.

Jesus wept, does that actually happen? I thought everyone was home-schooling (or watching Loose Women and Love Island while pretending to anyway). Well that's me well telt anyway. Good luck to them.

Some genuinely good news for a change:

>The new paper, published in the journal Nature, shows that the Montreal protocol has paused the southward movement of the jet stream since the turn of the century and may even be starting to reverse it as the ozone hole begins to close. Last September, satellite images revealed the ozone hole annual peak had shrunk to 16.4m sq km, the smallest extent since 1982.

Colin salmon was a thing. Around the turn of the century he was in bond, resident evil, alien versus predator, the lot.

Now... Colin salmon is not a thing. It's like he's disappeared from public consciousness.

How dare you! Idris is a traditional Welsh name, It is name it is the name of a red hot dragon not one of your lumping great fairy tale dragons but a small chime heraldic welsh dragon who lives on smoke hill he does. Jones the steam found him up there you see.

Seconding all of these.

Also if you were into platform games on the PC back in the early 90s then you might have encountered Jill of the Jungle and Bio Menace. Neither were stand-out titles in the shareware era in particular but the former is notable for being programmed by Tim Sweeney, who went on to found Epic, program the Unreal Engine and steer its course from Quake competitor to industry-wide middleware dominance, and then do Fortnite for 250 million kids or whatever it is now. He makes me feel like a right lazy cunt. Bio Menace is just pure Apogee nostalgia. Strangely gory, actually. I quite liked it back in the day.

Beneath a Steel Sky is hilarious and well worth a playthrough. Some of the dialog is brilliant, though the accents on the voice acting can be a little distracting at times. Can't say anything for the other games.

Drawful 2 is currently free on steam

The jackbox games are largely terrible and you only buy each pack to get one game out of them, and now they have made the best one free.
