I don't particularly enjoy having much to do with my neighbours on a good day. Can't say I'm really on bad terms with anybody, some of them are even really quite sufferable people. I just value my anonymity when I am at home, with nobody really paying attention to what I am doing. Not sure what good it will really do me to be in a whatsapp group with the other tenants.

And during all of the years since I moved out from my parents', never once did I lock myself out. So it's a chance that's worth taking to me.

Having half of my flat trashed due to heating system being re-done. Had to move my chair and my table from near the window.
It's been just a day and I already miss it. I'm kind of used to stare at the street when I'm idling.

I used to volunteer now and then for a charity for disabled children.

Nothing quite like getting a whiff from a low-functioning autism kid who just shat himself. Not that he would have noticed, he was usually too busy counting all the Lego pieces in the bin over and over. Maybe I contracted my social awkwardness from him.

Better get used to that smell, seeing as all your kids will be autistic now.

I wonder if there should be health warnings for pregnant women to stay away from autists in case they inhale their farts and it ends up stunting their foetus.

Instagram couple beg for £9k holiday while mum funds their lifestyle with two jobs

Because neither of them have a job - instead relying on Catalin's mother to fund their lifestyle by working two jobs - they have turned to the public for financial support.

On a GoFundMe page they have set their sights high, asking for €10,000 (£8,907) to embark on the trip.

According to Catalin and Elena the adventure is worthy of external funding because of the positive impact it would have on their Instagram followers.

"We could write a long text about mental health or global warming," they explain on the fundraising page.

"We could tell you about following your dreams, or how important stepping out of your comfort zone is."

"We could tell you how beautiful traveling is, and it’s benefits, or the fact that most news don’t match reality."

I think much of the Broken Britain debate around 2007-10 was disingenuous. Much of that segment of the population which constituted Broken Britain wasn't at the bottom end of society of their own volition. They were just the symptom of a society where if you've sunk to a certain level, there isn't much hope for you to get back up.

And even with the most benign view on the Tory government from 2010, you can't in all honesty say that Cameron fixed Broken Britain.

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.

That's slightly disconcerting.

I guess it isn't much consolation that the Earth has been through much more sudden catastrophic events like the asteroid impact 65 million years ago and has bounced back.

It's vanilla right now, save for GriefProtection, which allows you to claim an area of land that will be secured from damage/grief. I don't know if we need this or if it'll ruin the 'fun' of natural disasters like your house being cunted over by creepers. But for now all you do is do /claim in your house to claim your first area, then subsequent claims or edits will require a golden shovel. It's a whole thing, look it up.

I'm happy to stick other mods in there if we get bored, and please let me know if you encounter performance issues - I'm using some hosting service that might well be shite.

There were some good 800 metres between me and my targets. I remember having to compensate for the distance.

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.


http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4826482/Theresa-sets-date-quit-Prime-Minister.html

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

Why doesn't Boris just say "it was a personal matter, a row that got out of hand and a noise complaint was made", it's the way he's dancing around the issue that's making a mountain out of a mole hill. Is my assumption that it's symptom of his upper-class background in which all personal matters are buried deep as deep goes and ignored forever baseless? Like when David Cameron started crying when someone mentioned his dad that one time? It's just so strange that he'd let something so seemingly minor foul up his campaign like this.

I keep running up against a wall in my relationships with others, romantic and platonic, and a recent talk with my girlfriend made this clear.

In short: I internalised the fact that I am very much alone in the world from a very young age. A degree of emotional independence might be healthy, but I take it much too far. I struggle with the idea that anyone really has my back or wants to (or even can) support me. I have a lot of confidence in myself, not so much in others.

I could examine every little reason for and aspect of that, but I don't feel like I need to. I think it's a typical story: boy in a shite industrial town, hard-working but depressed parents. Lots of toxic relationships and traumatic experiences. Didn't or couldn't have much faith in the adults around me. Truthfully, for a long time I did not have anyone, so handled it by keeping things to myself. I'm sure this can be pathologised as avoidant personality or disordered attachment or whatever label you like, but that kind of analysis doesn't really interest me much.

The other side of the coin is that I'm also pretty bright, emotionally expressive, and sociable. I have a lot of interests and have mixed with many kinds of people. I like talking to and sharing life with others. I have built a very good life for myself in another location and am loving meeting people here.

The result is that I have a lot of friends and enjoy the companionship, but as soon as something rubs me the wrong way or I feel that people are no longer an "ally", the switch flips and I quite literally feel nothing for them but a very cold sense of distance. The best way I can describe it is anger, but viewed through a telescope.

I sometimes feel as though the same sensitivity and awareness that makes me so good at gabbing and becoming close with people is the exact same sensitivity which will put me on high alert if anyone indicates they might hurt me or let me down.

This understandably upsets and confuses people, especially girls I've become involved with. I really hate this. I hate hurting others. And to be quite honest, it doesn't seem fair to open up and unleash my "issues" on people, even if they want to know and help. Treating friends and partners like therapists is rarely a good idea.

I want to handle this responsibly. I don't see any romance in "damaged but charming" or any other stereotypee. Money is a bit tight for proper therapy right now, and I've found most therapists woefully inept in dealing with young men in particular. I know at least one of you will suggest CBT, and I won't reject it out of hand but it seems like an extremely dry and mechanical process. I have my reservations about it. So, what do I do?

I'm going through something very similar. I think the only way you get over that wall is by making yourself vulnerable.

>And to be quite honest, it doesn't seem fair to open up and unleash my "issues" on people, even if they want to know and help.

Your friends are there for you to open up to and it's a little rude to keep people away like that.

>Treating friends and partners like therapists is rarely a good idea.

Asking friends to pick up some milk once in a while is fine, but expecting them to do your grocery shop week in, week out is rude. It's the same with talking about issues, friends do want to help and be helped.

I made the mistake of thinking that any opening up (or vulnerability) was wrong (that I shouldn't put my problems on other people, etc.). But, I greatly underestimated my own emotional intelligence.

I don't think you need therapy and I don't really see what it'd achieve. I think you just need to work on making yourself a bit more vulnerable here and there.

I saw a girl earlier and it really, really hit me that I really, really miss girls and ought to be doing something to rectify that. Christ, she was fit. I'm not sure if she was looking at me in revulsion or with conflicted attraction, but I'm telling myself it was the latter.

This week’s puzzle marks the opening round of a national competition in which Guardian readers have traditionally performed strongly over many years.

You have to work out how White, playing as usual up the board in the diagram, can force checkmate in two moves, however Black defends.

The puzzle is the first stage of the Winton British Chess Solving Championship, organised by the British Chess Problem Society and open to any British resident. Entry is free and the prize fund will be at least £1,225.

Oh sorry you said e7 not e6. Yeah that's mate in 2 fair enough.

HOWEVER: if Black doesn't use the rook, and Qc6 as originally planned, then the queen can be captured from d7. So that's the whole thing out the window.

I'm starting to think this puzzle is impossible.

I'm wondering whether it can be brute-forced. The criteria here is essentially that for the correct white move, white has a mating response to every black move. In this position, there are 38 legal moves for white and 13 moves for black, but some of the white moves are checks which narrow down the possibilities for black. For example, after Rf5+ the only legal move is Nxf5.

>>427853
If black doesn't use the rook, it has to move something else.
e7 Nf5 Rxf5#
e7 N{f3,g2} Rf5#
e7 Rf8 exf8Q#
e7 d[65] Re6#
e7 c6 Qd6#

I don't think there's an immediate mate from e7 g6 though.

>My money bloke always says 'if they're talking about it, you're three months late' which seems to hold pretty true.

You could also call it the stock price paradox.

Given enough time, most stocks will almost invariably go up. But when you get in, they will almost never go up. At least not right away, and that's what discourages many investors who then get out as the stock tumbles. But only to see the stock climb again and far beyond their sell point in a few months' time.

In the short term, it's almost impossible to tell, especially for a small retail investor, which way a stock will go. And it's also why short-term traders fail, because those who dictate stock prices have realised it's a magnificently easy way to empty the pockets of more gullible investors who think they can make money betting on short-term ups and downs. It doesn't matter what you do, you have no way of winning this game.

It'd be easy to think all you'd have to do is buy stocks that are down or otherwise cheap, but the problem is that you might well end up buying a stock that either isn't going to do much for the next five years, or if a stock is in a downward trend, you simply have no way of telling if it's going to go down another 20 percent before it really picks up speed to the upside again. Trends tend to perpetuate themselves. Until the day they don't.

What you need in the stock market nowadays more than ever is bulletproof nerves of steel that will allow you to hold on to a stock that you think is promising even if it slides ten percent in one day. And you need infinite patience. Sadly, those two are still no guarantee that you will be earning a noteworthy profit in the long term. But they are pretty much the conditio sine qua non of stock investing.

At the height of the bitcoin price bubble I worked out what all the btc I'd spent on drugs, just in 2015 alone, would have been worth. Then I cried a bit. Good job I didn't have a way to work it out all the way back to 2012.

>My first thought was that they should have just added a reset button to the bulb, but that's not great if the bulb is in a high or awkward fitting - the reset sequence won't work unless the bulb is powered on, so you might have people up a ladder trying to find a tiny button on a hot bulb while being blinded by the glare. That's a lawsuit waiting to happen.

You are making it sound more complex then it is it isn't any more difficult then changing a light bulb.
Also I think 'smart bulbs' are LED and therefore don't generate much heat.
And finally that it doesn't reset every other bulb on the same lighting circuit which might be relevant.

A small switch is the solution but I am willing to believe the people who build the hardware aren't the same people who make the software so largely ignore each others needs and might not even be in the same country and company let alone the same factory and key parts of hard ware might even be for other purposes that they bastardised because it was significantly cheaper than building their own.

Just because it's easy to change a light bulb where you're using them, doesn't mean that it's always easy.
Although, don't these things present an AP for first configuration? Does that get disabled once configured? Seems daft if so.
A sensible person might campaign for bot a switch and a secret handshake, if you really do need to be able to reauthnticate like this.

The forger gives themselves away with the date in the top right. Look at the slant of the letters and the last two numerals - they're clearly written by an adult who has learned cursive. No ten-year-old who is precocious enough to write to Jimmy saville would need (or allow) an adult to write the date for them.

Otherwise, it's a good effort, likely written by someone who has a child of about that age - the pre-cursive letterforms in the main text are spot on.

The give away is to me the way it is written satisfies all the desires of the audience. It is bad character writing in that it doesnt come from expression of an inner voice. That said children learn to 'say the right thing' to satisfy any adults around them so that could explain it. I remember how 'smart' I was considered for saying the right thing at that age about religion, when I formed my own opinions and became an atheist I was stupid again. So there is a possibility they are just parrots rather than the forgery of adults.

Trump Approves Strikes on Iran, but Then Abruptly Pulls Back

President Trump approved military strikes against Iran in retaliation for downing an American surveillance drone, but pulled back from launching them on Thursday night after a day of escalating tensions.

As late as 7 p.m., military and diplomatic officials were expecting a strike, after intense discussions and debate at the White House among the president’s top national security officials and congressional leaders, according to multiple senior administration officials involved in or briefed on the deliberations.

Officials said the president had initially approved attacks on a handful of Iranian targets, like radar and missile batteries. The operation was underway in its early stages when it was called off, a senior administration official said. Planes were in the air and ships were in position, but no missiles had been fired when word came to stand down, the official said.
