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.

And fisherpersons will agree, even if you give them a bit of their own drugs. Even in Scunthorpe . cup of tea in a teapot maybe, but blame it on Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.

Okay fellas, I have no major problems going on in my life right now, in fact since January I've been doing pretty well.

That said, I've just gotten home from the gym and wanked for two hours straight, after telling myself I wouldn't do the same thing I did yesterday which was wank for two hours straight after work.

This is after wanking a shitload on the weekend as well.

It's fucking with my routine and making me squash my days. I like to have a wank to a sexual fantasy now and then, but fuck sake I hate doing it for two hours.

Just someone give me some support to not do this for the rest of the week.

I wank 5 times a day and have a one terabyte porn collection.

Update: I ended up trying nofap/noporn for a couple of weeks and it turns out I'm not unusually horny, I'm just addicted to porn. I noticed that whenever I was feeling bored, frustrated, or anxious, I'd want to watch some porn and edge to take the edge off. It leads to a helluva lot of wanking when boredom, frustration, anxiety are your three primary states of being.

Has anyone here managed to cure their hard-flaccid?

I'm nearly 40 and I've had this since i was about 12. I think it was caused by bad masturbation technique in which I'd tense up my kegel muscles to achieve quicker orgasm.

Is it too late to cure now?

I can still get hard but it's all wrong. The head doesn't inflate properly and the shaft feels hollow and wooden. It's caused by tension in the groin muscles preventing proper blood flow.

I've tried doing reverse kegels to relax the groin muscles and it did partially work. I felt the groin area relax and open up, the blood flow improved and I had an almost normal, fuller erection.

Sort of like cramp in the muscles of the groin and dick. It stops your dick getting fully hard, and when it's soft it's still kind of tense and feels rubbery.

Cardio exercise would probably be your best bet. No harm in keeping on doing these reverse kegels, either, I suppose. But what you really want to do is give your lad a more adequate supply of juice. Definitely get on with a healthier diet too.

I always get a much more solid stonk on after a couple of days hard manual work. I'm not sure what can done about the muscle cramping but if you can boost your fitness in those other areas it might help overcome that altogether.

I'm younger than you, and it's not the same thing... But I messed up my penis as a teenager and for a good decade it would only get hard in parts/lumps unless I massaged it to help the blood get to the parts it was supposed to go.

My condition eventually got better.

Does it really matter though? The only way you really get better at these things is reading them, missing the references then learning where they were missed out later.

It's just like watching a film, watch it, then after you've had a think about it (if it's that kind of film), have a google and see what others have said and see where you missed it out.

Once the fan starts making noises, it will probably continue to do so, intermittently at first, and then more frequently.

Try a few drops of adequate oil/lubricant first though, before you resort to more drastic measures. And do NOT use WD-40, because it's just a temporary fix and tends to flush out whatever factory applied lubricant is still inside the bearing.

It's not quite common knowledge, but WD-40 is just about the worst thing you can do to noisy ball bearings.

I've found this cool website that allows you to explore the economies of various countries, what's traded and with whom, etc.
- https://oec.world/en/profile/country/gbr/

'Product Space' is particularly interesting in that it shows how various industries are linked with other, sometimes suprising, industries. Almost like a roadmap of what's involved with what.
- https://oec.world/en/visualize/network/hs92/export/gbr/all/show/2017/

There's also this leaked document "Operation Yellowhammer", which details the apparent chaos to be faced during the early stages of WWIII. Jesus christ, reading over this makes it apparent just how vulnerable we'll be. I'm beginning to understand why it's taken so long to prepair.

All of this makes me wonder why a country would rely heavily on trade rather than produce a good deal of necessities itself. Maybe something's gone over my head but it seems like we've balanced that tradeoff between savings and security poorly.

Comparative advantage. If you as an individual had to be completely self-sufficient, you might just survive, but you'd eke out a very meagre existence. The same principle applies on a national level - it makes a great deal of sense for us to import food from places with lots of land and import manufactured goods from places with a lot of cheap labour, while exporting goods and services that benefit from our highly educated population and highly sophisticated economy.

This kind of trade has historically had a profound stabilising effect on international relations - you're far less likely to fuck with a country if it would disrupt a profitable trading relationship. You treat your customers with a level of courtesy that you wouldn't extend to strangers. Trade sanctions are a very severe but completely bloodless punishment for breaking international law.

Some issues are just inherently international. When Chernobyl blew up, Scottish farmers had to pour their milk down the drain. Back in the 70s, sulphur dioxide emissions from German and Eastern European coal smoke were destroying Scandinavian forests. If you were so inclined, you could really make life difficult for your international neighbours (or vice-versa) without ever declaring war. Trade policy is one of the levers the international community uses to resolve these issues.

Isolationism would definitely make us poorer and it'll probably make us less safe.

All of this.

Comparative advantage on a large scale is what drives international trade, but on a small scale it's why you call in trades rather than fixing every problem you have yourself.

If you're not shy then why haven't you tried picking up drunken bints on your Friday jaunts?

I would probably start working on the "no friends" bit first. Ideally you could find some sort of club where you can bond with people over shared interests, but if not, amateur team sports would be a good bet. I read somewhere that exercise enhances social bonds on a hormonal level, and the effect is even more potent when backed up by the camaraderie of team sports.

Well, if something isn't working then you need to try a different strategy. If you have a stable job and don't live at home then there's always speed-dating where women are forced to interact with you. I don't know what you're expecting to achieve by wandering the streets the nights or going to bars on your own.

>Every friday and so today i go out into the streets looking for something to do but i return home done nothing.

Is this a lyric from somewhere?

This might be anecdotal, but for what it's worth, my sexual relationships basically come down to meeting people through the following channels:

a) mutual friends
b) work colleagues
c) themed get-togethers intended for people to mingle (i.e. meetups, clubs)
d) online apps (I've had the most success with Bumble, where girls confirm their interest first)

So those are some more concrete suggestions. But as other lads have pointed out, it sounds like your problems may run a bit deeper. You can gradually overcome social isolation with a few positive changes here and there. For example, finding a new (or any) job automatically puts you into contact with people, moving to a new area will give you new neighbours and a reason to attend local meetups.

I think you should try focusing on the problems you can control and generally leading a good fulfilling life, meeting people will come naturally from that. Don't let it knock your confidence that you haven't had sex -- I'm sure you have your legitimate reasons and struggles.

Many people end up with absolutely dysfunctional sex lives despite early "success". Think about the people who have sexless relationships or marriages, those who are cheating, developing risky/dangerous sex behaviours, or hide their true sexual orientations. Not having sex until a late age is certainly not the worst thing that can happen in someone's sexual development

/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.

We're proper fucked now, lads. Not long until the feedback loop starts, the next 3-5 years are going to bring great and brutal change so this way of life is pretty much done. It's sort of freeing in a way, there's a weight off now nothing really matters. Going to try and live in the moment more and travel for the next couple years, while doing a shit load of drugs.

No-one who's had proper sex with a woman puts that much effort into typing a dirty fantasy on a pokey little imageboard.

Following my grandfathers death at the age of 81, I've been feeling remarkably low.

I am 'only' 27, however since his funeral I've been near-constantly considering my life. The inevitability of pain and death. I've been thinking how short it is really, and how I'm *twenty seven* years through it already. I feel like I'm old, like my life will pass me by in no time. This inevitability scares me, it depresses me, it makes me question how everybody on earth can seemingly just "get on with it" without lamenting these things. I don't know what to do, I feel fucking terrible. One day I will see people I love dearly die, or perhaps I'll die first. I can't enjoy my life any more. I feel sick to the stomach.

I wasn't particularly close to my grandfather, we were somewhat estranged. News of his death didn't immediately hit me. But I've felt like this following the funeral. I'm hoping the obvious cause of these feelings mean they have an expiry on them. This was the first relative of mine I've known to pass.

What you described in your second paragraph is entirely normal for someone who has just been made to face their own mortality properly for the first time.

Everybody dies. We all know this, but until that moment we don't fully appreciate it. That feeling will linger, and it'll come back at other funerals, but rarely will it be as intense as that first time. In the short term, it'll probably pass before too long. As the saying goes, this too shall pass.

I don't know what else to say other than that I've felt similar feelings but not as strongly after losing loved ones. You're a human being and grief is natural.

If he didn't mean anything to you, you wouldn't be hurting. I think there is some comfort to that. You were blessed to have that person in your life.

Stay strong, m8.

My grandad died when I was six. He was pretty young, maybe in his early sixties. Smoked like a chimney though, upwards of 60 a day. Not a surprise in the end.

I don't remember feeling much at the time, I was probably too young to have really understood. However I think having such an early experience of death and mortality has left an impression on me. I had several other elderly relatives die before I was even a teenager. The realisation that humans are remarkably short lived, in the greater scheme of things, has been with me since I was very young.

If anything I've always felt slightly guilty that I don't experience what most people do when a relative passes away. I don't grieve like you are supposed to and I feel bad for being such a cold hearted psychopath. So if anything, OP, be glad that you have those feelings. They are there for a reason, and almost everyone goes through it. It fades with time and it's something everyone has to learn from to truly appreciate the time they are alive.

Bought Rimworld. Underwhelmed. Music so far has been uninteresting, for the most part. Just seems like you watch the guys running around doing things. I built a little hut for my single naked character, then he died to a rat bite. Maybe i haven't put enough time into it - 45 minutes maybe. I'll play some more but i'm not holding out hope. It seems these days i'm into the type of game that rewards investment, but is imidiately playable. Skilled arcade types, i guess.

You're probably not going to get much mileage out of it in that case. It's very much a sim despite it borrowing elements from the RTSs and RPGs of yore.

My recommendation would be to try out building bases and spawning raids in god mode. I do that when I can't be arsed grinding up a settlement and it's a refreshing change of pace.

I've been playing through vanilla Quake II recently, trying to get to a point where I can confidently strut around the world and know what needs poking and where I need to go. I don't want to speedrun the game, it's more of a memory exercise.

Rimworld is occasionally described as "Dwarf Fortress Light". It is not a game you're expected to win at, the joy comes out of the ridiculous chaos that eventually collapses your entire empire. Then you try again, as you learned more about the rules, and maybe get a bit further. As >>23032 says, it's a sim at its core, the rest is just window dressing.

One of the UK's most high profile stock-pickers has suspended trading in his largest fund as rising numbers of investors ask for their money back. Neil Woodford said after "an increased level of redemptions", investors would not be allowed to "redeem, purchase or transfer shares" in the fund.

Investors have withdrawn about £560m from the fund over the past four weeks. However, it was a request from Kent County Council to withdraw £250m that led to the suspension.

At its peak, the Woodford Equity Income fund managed £10.2bn worth of assets, such as local authority pension funds. However, it now manages £3.7bn, according to the financial services and research firm Morningstar. Mr Woodford's firm, Woodford Investment Management, is also the biggest investor in Kier Group, the construction and services group which on Monday warned on profits, sending its shares crashing 41%.

>He's not an architect. He's not a project manager. He's not a builder. He's not an engineer. His background is in designing theatre sets and lighting.

One would assume that 20 years of exposure to others projects if he has done any level of analysis at all rather than barked lines into a microphone would give him an idea of he would have a deep understanding of the pit falls and the best contacts in the industry. But apparently it turns out he knew bugger all which explains why i assume he wasn't able to get any professional investors because they would ask basic questions about his business model.

97% loss is quite incredible it raises the question what the fuck he was doing with the money for the last 6 years. Because as someone who doesn't have a clue about building houses I'm sure I could do better than that.

It's the Dunning–Kruger effect. I've seen it happen quite a few times at work with relatively inexperienced people; they don't know what they don't know so they end up complacent and believing that certain tasks are easier than they actually are. Once you've had a bit of exposure to something a little bit of knowledge can be a very dangerous thing.
