The yanks lap it up, too. Wendy's, the burger chain, has made itself infamous for its Twitter "sass", I had a look and for the most part it just seemed that they were being unnecessarily rude. I've worked various customer-facing jobs, I know better than most that customers can be right cunts, but I don't think the correct response is to be a cunt right back.

It depends on the context really, if you're afraid of losing your job being a cunt right back is definitely a no-no. If your CEO makes your job description "be a cunt right back" that innate fear you feel about being a cunt to a cunt in your own workplace environment just evaporates.

Paul Gascoigne explains infamous attempt to 'save' killer Raoul Moat 10 years ago

“I just remember that I was in a taxi, I had a fishing rod, some chicken, four cans of lager and a fishing jacket,” he said. “I thought that I could take Raoul Moat fishing because he was near a river. I told the taxi driver ‘head for the airport’ and then when we got to Newcastle airport I said ‘head for Rothbury’. The taxi driver said ‘you are not going where I think you are going?’ And I said ‘yes I am’.”

He added: “I was telling the taxi driver I could save him. I told him: Listen, I have been through so much, I am the best therapist in the world, I can save him’. I think that I genuinely believed that.”

When he got out, the driver did not ask for the fare and Gazza headed straight for the police cordon where Moat was surrounded in a field in the Northumberland village of Rothbury. “I said ‘Where’s Moaty?’,” he recalled, in an exclusive interview near his Bournemouth home. “Someone said to me ‘Do you know him? and I said ‘No don’t’.”

Unaware that his arrival was breaking live on TV news, Gazza’s appearance at the scene triggered rumours about how he knew Moat. “People were saying he was my friend, and then my cousin,” he added. In reality, they had never met. “I walked into a local B&B, saw myself on TV thought ‘oh shit,” he said. “I went to the house where I was staying, got half way up the lamp post and fell off.”

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.

To be fair (and to add a bit of context to >>23374) a common refrain from people who draw for a living is that the easiest way to actually make money on commissions is by finding a niche interest and draw lewd material for it, even if they have no particular interest in the material themselves.

Oh, not judging them, or anyone else who wants to draw porn for a living. It doesn't hurt anyone else, I don't see how it's any of my concern.

I note that Skullgirls got into some controversy going the other direction, editing sprites to take out some of the panty shots. It seems like an odd choice to me, given the game had been out for years by the time they elected to do this. By that point anyone who'd be offended by that stuff must have already made up their mind. There were some mutterings about this being an attempt to make it esports-friendly, but I find it hard to believe the developers had any such pretensions, not least because they left plenty of equally racy content in there anyway.

The Bioshock games, via the Remaster collection on PS4. It's been nearly 13 years since Bioshock was released, I was in my early 20s at the time and I remember being blown away by the graphics - I'd never seen anything quite like it. Looking at it now it's striking, games just haven't got all that much prettier. I think it sits right on the knee of the curve for 3D graphics, it's been diminishing returns ever since; looking back at what was released 13 years before Bioshock, we'd be talking original Doom. Things have definitely slowed down.

I tried the sequel, which I really enjoyed at the time (more so than the original, if I'm honest), but it isn't grabbing me. Don't think I'll bother installing Infinite, I played enough of that when it was new.

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.

>Hughes has spent $20,000 (£15,000) building the steam-powered rocket in his spare time, and will be livestreaming the launch over the internet. The self-described daredevil says he switched his focus to rockets after twice breaking his back doing stunt jumps in cars.

I saw something on TV a while ago about a Young Earth Creationist who has devoted his life to offering guided tours through the Grand Canyon where he attempts to convince visitors that evolution and the idea that the Earth is anything more than 8,000 years old are complete bollocks, and that the Grand Canyon itself is proof.

I think his position wasn't so much that astronomy and geology are a hoax, but he incessantly went on about things like, the only reason you find fossils of marine species at the top of mountains is that they are remnants of the biblical Great Flood. And that it was simply impossible that mountains could have formed from seafloor sediment, because the vertical distance of in some cases several miles could not have been overcome in the 8,000 years that the Earth was really actually old. So it was kind of a mish mash by a homeschooled born-again git throwing together scientific fact that he understood nothing about and audacious Bible claims that were drummed into him in the worst kind of way, but he was so adamant that the Grand Canyon's rock formations proved the Young Earth idea, it was kind of just really sad to see.

After watching the behind the curve documentary I went and did a bit of research into various things output by various parties in the film.

The motive seems to largely be believing they are smarter than everyone else.

That at some point people believed based on current data (in Renaissance) that the world was round,but as modern technology came along it proved that theory incorrect, specifically that people reached the edge in Antartica. Now they are either too embarrassed to admit they were wrong as it will make science look stupid, or think it would cause mass chaos as people react to the news.

Part of this is based on what until relatively recently wha modern flat eart was. A tool for a theoretical exercise to promte critical thinking and challenge commonly held beliefs, that was co-opted by people who started to believe the arguments being put forward.

>A tool for a theoretical exercise to promte critical thinking and challenge commonly held beliefs, that was co-opted by people who started to believe the arguments being put forward.

I guess it then sort of falls into epistemology, which is for the most part just academic self pleasure, but has some interesting approaches to the challenging of beliefs that are held to be entirely true facts.

It's like that whole argument of whether you exist, and how you know you exist. On the one hand, it can be a brilliant philosophical question that requires all the sharpness of your mind. But then some gits start telling you that they think we live in the Matrix.

I'd argue epistemology is the most important topic there is. It does result in self torture though as you just constantly spot the bad arguments that people prefer and pick over the truth, mostly when they agree with what they thought anyway.

Incredibly vague OP, but I'm gonna make a philosophical soliloquy based on what I think you're hinting at anyway.

In most relationships I believe you have a dominant and a submissive half, and as long as the individuals involved are both in the position that feels natural to them everything will go smoothly. It's not inherently better or worse for the man to be in charge or not, the important part is if that lines up with the individual's personality. When those roles start to slip out of alignment that's when friction occurs.

I don't think it's necessarily healthy to expect the individual in question to somehow adjust themselves; it can work but I think it's usually more likely to result in conflict and suppression of healthy self esteem. People change over time and usually a shift in this dynamic represents a drift apart, outgrowing that partnership, if you will. We are taught that couples should exist for love and love alone, but in truth a person's financial status, direction in life, their ambitions and long term trajectory are very important. We shouldn't be ashamed to admit it if we are no longer a perfect fit. Sometimes life can take us down converging paths.

(There's also neutral relationships that share power and responsibilities equally, but I think they are much less common, and most people who think they are in one probably aren't. This is very broad stroke stuff. It's also not impossible for the other partner to change or adapt so that the partnership is complimentary again later down the line. But again rare.)

A lot of people don't say how they feel and over time end up in a state of appeasement. After the honeymoon period problems start happening and the trouble is that women often like to talk more than men. I had, and other males I know have, a tendency to just let the sadness build and go with the other person which leads to feeling terrible. Read 'No More Mr.Nice Guy".

You do have people that have been together for a while that cannot say the simplest of things to each other, or have a discussion about anything but the weather.

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.

If you don't want to discuss, that's fine, but I can't help but be curious about the "head trauma in his house alone". Did he fall down in the stairs, or in the shower? Something else?

No idea I'm afraid. Police found the body and that is all they said, and that it wasn't suspicious.

I suspect his parents got given a fuller picture (they were the ones who called the police also because he wasn't answering the door) but I've never spoken to them.

A friend talked to the local police about it to get confirmation I don't think they volunteered any additional information.

"What helps your mood and anxiety to get better?"

If I knew that I wouldn't be doing CBT, would I?!

You'd be surprised how many people with mental health issues are the equivalent of:

"My face hurts"
"Why does your face hurt?"
"I don't know, hmmm Ikeep slapping myself in the face"
"You should stop doing that?"
"Why would that help?"
"Just try it"
"I did it for 5mins my face still stings"
"Try it for at least a week"

I'm not saying that's your issue, but I think we all know someone who does these things to themselves and we see the 'easy fix'. And therapists probably look for the easy win of those cases first, some probably forget that there are those that isn't a solution for.

Through my CBT I was told that emotions are the last thing to change, so I could start exercising today but probably wouldn't really notice much change until after a year or so. I think they often look for something easy and obvious that you can 'do'.


Politely but- they can't tell you what makes you feel better. I felt the same as you before and I'd loathe these questions. The chances are that there are at least some things you can do to relieve your mood at least a little. If you're in CBT then then it's likely that you need to learn about how you react to stuff and what you can do to make yourself feel better.

The fact that you are annoyed by the question is why you need to really think about the question.

I scrolled your linked tweet for longer than I should have done. Not a single person I saw stated or implied removing education to prevent propaganda is a good idea as you suggested they did. The confusion may have arisen because of almost every post rebuking the implication that American education is free of propaganda by reciting their experience of 'pledging allegiance to the American flag and the Republic for which it stands every morning,' 'almost failing a history exam because the teacher didn't believe the eugenics movement existed' and a link to a Guardian article expressing outrage that some American school textbooks still referred to slaves as workers.

Here is the original tweet for context on why these people responded as they did.

From @PolitiFact
>.@BernieSanders was right about Cuba's literacy push in 1961. Over 700,000 people learned to read and write. They also got a hefty dose of ideology. <link removed>

If anything the people responding seem to be pro-Bernie, with PolitiFact making a politically charged statement that doesn't condemn American education in any way but merely adds context to what I assume was a statement Bernie made about how the Cubans gave the population literacy out of the goodness of their heart with no ulterior motive.

It's thought processes like yours that make me laugh at Americans. Please don't import that kind of thinking over here.

Not the busted eardrum, then?

Also, what's the etiquette for spoiler tags for events like this? I closed this tab earlier at work today because I recorded the fight to watch tonight.

I mean, I don't mind not coming here for a few days, but I would have been somewhat upset if there'd been a CAN'T BELIEVE X WON post in /sfw/.

Well are purps got dumped by a darkie some time around the referendum so ever since then we've gone from Guardian reading wankers to Mail reading wankers. It's the same amount of wank but with a different flavour. Look, I can say wog now. Wog. Wog wog wog.

Do you mean in a technical legal sense or in a societal sense? Because if you mean the legal sense it doesn't really matter since rape is a jury trial, since laws exist to serve society, or should at least, it's the societal definition that matters, so you're wrong, womanlad.
