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?

Project Second Referendum, innit. The elites don't want us hearing bad news about the EU.

Austerity is bad when the Tories do it, but fine when the EU enforces it. Controlling the internet is bad when the Tories want to do it, but fine when the EU wants to do it.

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.

So The Tangerine Tyrant is gracing us with his presence, on the 13th of July. Friday the 13th in fact.

Coordinated mass protests are predicted and the met has drafted in reinforcements to "balance" free speech and security.

There's the admirable "Show your rump to trump", the coordinated mooning will if nothing offend POTUS, who is a self-confessed "germa-phobe".

Then there's the venerable "giant Trump Baby balloon". Though are Sadiq has forbidden its flying. Watch this space.

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.

Im 26 and I've only just come to accept I'm bisexual. That's a step I suppose, but I have this deep rooted sense that I am inferior for it. I don't know why, but I feel less than my straight peers. Like a sissy, beta skinny guy not worth a thing. I hate myself for it, it makes me feel weak and embarrassed. The only person on earth who has any knowledge of this is my girlfriend. Probably my friends suspect things. Bu! t I feel horrendous. I wish I was born a girl. That way I could feel like I do now without guilt. I'd be normal. I wouldn't hate myself for being a failed man. How do I get over this?

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.

You aren't "Anon the bisexual", you are "Anon", who happens to be bi among their other qualities.

To be fair if you read the cunt off in the trump protest thread you would think you need to be a massive flaming bender in order to even call yourself not straight. You are right and they are wrong in my opinion, but sometimes the greatest enermy of the LGBT movement, is the LGBT movement. It alienates the people it is supposed to help Down-low wouldn't exist if it wasn't for batty boys.

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.

>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.

I hate to have to do this, but I'm officially declaring that things have gotten more shit than they were in the past.

Films like American Beauty would likely not get made today. Not because Kevin Spacey himself is an abusive gay paedo and will probably never find work again as an actor. But because of all the hints at sex between middle aged wronguns and minors.

It also doesn't quite matter that Mena Suvari was actually 20 years old when American Beauty was filmed.

It kind of messed with your head. I had a huge crush on Mena Suvari for a long time, not because she was playing high school teenagers into her 20s, but because of the grown woman that she was in real life. I'm about her generation, a tad older, and if you asked me 15 or 20 years ago who my ideal dream girlfriend was, I would have said "somebody like Mena Suvari".

Sadly, her career died when she became to old to believably play precocious 16-year-olds. She resurfaced circa 2005 as a soldier in some zombie movie, but it wasn't the same. Even though she looked quite sexy in a combat uniform.

>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.

>Also, if what a friend who is also a trained chef told me is true, incomes vary widely in the restaurant industry.

True enough. There's a lot of variation. 8 quid an hour is fairly typical for a CDP (line cook) of an unexceptional restaurant, but usually you'll also get a share of tips, and in a busy restaurant that can work out to be two or three pounds extra per hour. Also consider that many chefs are doing 60 hour weeks, and it adds up, though it's still hugely unfair considering the amount of work they're doing.

The industry is shooting itself in the foot, as underpaying your general staff leads very quickly to staff shortages, which means you need to hire an agency chef, and they get paid 12-15 quid an hour at the very least, plus agency fees. So, all the disgruntled chefs at Carluccios or Zizzi or wherever tell them to shove their zero hour minimum wage contract up their arse and go work for the agencies. When I was agency I was sold as a head chef, and I was making 25-35 an hour depending on how desperate they were for someone competent.

Probably the smartest thing any competent British chef can do is fuck off to Dubai. I have friends there pulling silly money, 100k+ running their hotels, and the teams are so huge you get to spend a lot of your time on the fun stuff.

>>15693

I've certainly worked with much cuntier people than him. Like you say, he's an incredibly chef and most of the team who have worked under him in his heyday are industry leaders in their own right, most with at least their own restaurant under their belt. So a bit of screaming is absolutely worth it for working with one of the most talented and knowledgeable men in the industry.

It's impossible to be a good chef without being passionate, and in a hot, cramped, stressful, noisy environment, this passion is most easily manifested as aggression. There's not really time during service in a place like that to gently prod someone or talk them through their mistakes, you just have to shout at them to fix it, and if they're not capable of fixing it, then they have to fuck off. The risks are too great at that level - lose a michelin star and you lose a couple of million in revenue that year.

I should probably also say that a lot of chefs truly love what they do and that's worth a lot when it comes to thinking about your salary. I earn an embarrassing amount doing consulting and ops work now, but honestly I was a lot happier in the tiny seafood gastropub that paid me 22 grand and let me experiment with my menu and put out proper quality food.

This is also a high yield cultivar, and I can expect to harvest some 50 peppers per plant this year. The weather has really been great this year. For pretty much everything.

I'm really not sure what to do with 150 chili peppers, but I guess I will end up making loads of sauce from them. One of my specialties is mojo rojo, the Canarian spicy red sauce with plenty of chili and garlic.

And you can dry chili peppers too without a problem. Just leave them in a dry and warm place where they can't catch mold, and they will keep for up to two years. After that, they will probably lose flavour.

And a few peppers will go to a few friends who want some seeds to grow their own plants next year. I'll have to give them some pointers though, because Tabasco chili peppers aren't ideal for beginners. They are a bit more sensitive to the right or wrong conditions than other cultivars.

Ah, good times. It's kind of those things that I miss about being old.

That, and being able to dance all night, get pissed off my tits, and pull untold numbers of 20-year-olds. And then go to class again at uni on Monday morning as if nothing happened.

These days, I need the whole weekend to bounce back if I drink half a bottle of red wine at a dinner party Friday night.

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.

>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.

My father lost two in quick succession last year. One was particularly hard, as she'd been part of the family from the age of two months to her death just shy of 14 years.

Every dog is the best dog ever. That's why we call them "man's best friend". If the worst should happen, take time to grieve just as you would as if you'd lost a close family member, because at 15 years together, that's exactly what he is.

My mother shares image macros (sorry, memes) on Facebook. Colleagues regularly send them out in emails calling people the real MVP. Somebody sent me a message over my work Skype to call a group of people a "bunch of cucks". The same guy called a stock photograph "meme Harold". Dating profiles use words like "alpha". I saw Richard Osman use the term "circlejerk" on his Twitter account.

That's truly some depraved shit. I saw something on TV once where burglars in Africa broke into the home of a black family with an infant albino child, went into the children's bedroom and chopped off a few limbs from that child. And then just left.

I'm not sure those limbs really get eaten, I think it's more that they are used by witch doctors in ceremonies against evil spirits or something.

Still some depraved shit though.
