I was going to post more Crystal Castles but after checking up on their recent history I guess I won't. Fucking love them though, nostalgia and deep synths are a powerful combo.

So Lorn works too.

So on nostalgia I found a picture of the first girl I really fell for the other day and the way it made me feel has me seriously questioning my current relationship. I just don't feel that electricity here. Am I just getting old? Is it this dull?

Yep. I don't think anything will ever match the first hit of all of those potent brain chemicals in your formative years. The first time it's a surprise, any time after that you understand it a little bit more and are that much more used to it, much like chasing any other high.

Of course there's more to a relationship to teenage giddiness. I can't imagine my first girlfriend and I making it in the long run, I've learned too much since then that I simply wouldn't have if I was still with my Year 10 girlfriend.

I don't hate all people.
Just inconsiderate cunts. Those who litter and waste things from goods to their own or other peoples time. It doesn't help I'm surrounded by mouthbreathers and their ilk in public places.
I find most people are in a different mindset. I have nothing against people who are selfish and for themselves, I myself am. It's those who inconvenience everyone else. Every where I look when I'm out there is cigerette ends and litter on the floor, broken glass, graffiti and other signs of vandalism. I often think what drives a person to willing go around and do stuff like that and wonder if they could ever think any different.
A lot of it comes from a person's upbringing and background. I'm mostly describing poor people but with wealth comes those cunts who think they're the most important person in the world while driving some oversized fuel guzzling car while stuck in traffic creeping a few metres at a time.
Basically I hate cunts

>I still don't think she'd be able to visit you in hospital
Well yes it is a cat it doesn't understand that information, someone might bring it to me if I asked though.

>or inherit your property
I'd set up a trust with the cat as the benificary and a guarantor, not that I think the cat would out live me or I'd have anything of worth anyway as long as the cat is feed and happy thats that. The rest of my assets could go to others.

I sometimes think I will do that someday just to piss off my descendants.

I'd have to get a cat first, mind.

Probably a good idea to put in my will then that if somebody thinks they can just kill the cat to get my money, then all of it goes to charity and they don't get a penny.

But then who's going to keep the charity workers from killing my cat.

I've just watched Starship Troopers, not realising it was directed by the same fella that directed RoboCop, and thought that the 'in-universe TV' scenes were uncannily familiar.

Quite enjoyed it though, though I think they could have done with a bit more subversion and a bit less cheese.

This. You have to frame it in the context that the cheese is ripping on the teen dramas of the 90s like save by the bell and Beverly Hills, 90210, and to juxtapose that all of the adults are horrifically maimed and the society lacks any kind of empathy. It is a deliberate directorial decision.

There's only one sequel except they numbered it Starship Troopers 3 for some reason.
It's not as good as the first but it's still enjoyable. The focus is slightly different as it's more about religion and entertainment as a medium of control rather than the original purer fascism. You can see this as it missing the point or see it as just trying to do something fresh and more up to date than the original.

>We harbour the sense that "back in a simpler time" we had better survival skills, but you have to go pretty fucking far back for that to be true, and even then only someone on a self sustaining farm is likely to be surviving for very long during the apocalypse.

I reckon the Civil War reenactors will do alright and I doubt many people could deal with them while Mars and Earth align. While you fuckers get to realising the internet has ruined your memory I'd be worrying about the real problem our society now faces. Roundheads.

It's a great comfort to know that our generations retirement will basically be like how we lived before we had to get jobs. I'm even a little excited at the idea of playing Civ II and wanking to thoughts of the carers all day.

I actually dreamed last night that I was in Australia, visiting the two blokes from the Foster's adverts in their beach hut. Sure enough, they gave me a Foster's, and I said "cheers, guys"... and then one of them said to me "oh no mayt, we don't say cheers heere. We say 'You little ripper!'"

I dreamed again that I was repairing an industrial machinery. After taking the panel out I started following the power to find where the connection was broken. Sometimes in my dream I manage to summon some ultra detailed imagines, I have no idea how my fucked up brain does that. I have almost no visual memory when awake. All of a sudden, a pipe broke down and all the factory was under four meters of water. I started swimming to the surface, but I could not draw a breath even if my head was above water. Then my oximeter alarm woke me up, my blood oxygen was around 80%. Fuck my life and that NHS Non Invasive Ventilation machine, it's fucking useless.

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.

I always like to pedantically note that the uptick in that graph begins 15 minutes before privatisation.
We cheated the figures a bit by renationalising network rail and then giving railways a level of investment they'd not seen in decades. It's all well and good having passenger numbers spike without major cuts to the train operating companies profits, so long as you've got the government picking up the bill. You can say "oh, the subsidy per passenger mile is dropping off now", but that's the magic of investing in something: that's how it works. The question is "why didn't we do it earlier?" and the answer is, so far as I can tell, because trains hadn't started falling off the tracks and killing people with sufficiently alarming regularity.

Seconded. It's a very different experience to other BR games, with a lot more action and some really meaty tactical gameplay. The desperate shortage of ammunition makes camping a total waste of time - you have to get out there and chase resources from the off.

Protip: the delivery drones track your tablet, not you. You can set up some hilarious ambushes in the late game by ordering a box of ammo and dropping your tablet.

This, plus it's undeniable that the CS/source engine FPS experience is very different to most, mechanics wise. Anyone who has mastered the art of crouch jumping up a set of boxes has an advantage, though not a huge one.

>Protip: the delivery drones track your tablet, not you

That's amazing, I didn't even think about trying to drop the tablet.

I did do the fantastic 'pretend your pistol's a flash grenade' pro strat earlier for my first win.

I just noticed that Total War: Empire, Napoleon and Medieval 2 have just had all their DLC given out for free. I think the only bits I didn't already own were Empire and Napoleon's secondary campaigns, but by Jove I love the smell of black powder in the morning, even if they do seem like the least popular games in the entire series according to everyone else. The naval battles are truly awful, I'll cop to that.

Also, while I'd like to give Counter Strike: Global Offensive: Danger Zone a go, I've never been very good at the twitchier end of the shooter market and many people, even some in this thread, have been playing CS for so long I'm always hopelessly out classed. However, I do like the idea of it and it seems like Valve have tried something slightly different, despite a lot of people dismissing it immediately. I understand Valve haven't done much for their public image over the last few years, and that card game they're working on looks like a bit of a rip off, but it is F2P after all so you can hardly accuse them of being greedy buggers.

>I've never been very good at the twitchier end of the shooter market and many people, even some in this thread, have been playing CS for so long I'm always hopelessly out classed.

I'm really rather good at CS and was in the highest rank for a while when I played religiously - the good thing about CS and just about all of it's game types is that it's just as much about being in the right place and remaining undetected as it is about aiming. There's only so much practice any normal human can do on headshot flicks and the like, if you can aim for the head and control recoil even a little bit, you have a fighting chance.

I'm sure I'd be able to reliably beat you on one of the classic maps I've been playing forever, because I'd just know exactly where to go and which corners to shoot at. But I guarantee you have just as much of a chance as I do in an unknown map, or the new one on Danger Zone. If you get the drop on me I'll still die, if I miss the headshot and you don't I'll still die.

I'd also say that CS isn't quite as twitchy as your COD's and such - you don't gain anything by jumping all over the place like a distressed salmon like you see most people do in those games. The nature of how accuracy and spray patterns work in CS means you're more rewarded for controlled bursts while crouching or standing relatively still. I'd recommend trying it, I think you'll enjoy it if you're interested. If I'm wrong then I apologise.

>However, I do like the idea of it and it seems like Valve have tried something slightly different, despite a lot of people dismissing it immediately.

It seems like people who don't play CS:GO are dismissing it because it's Yet Another Battle Royale, though apparently some of the mode's assets have been found in the game files as early as last year, so they haven't rushed it out cynically.

And the existing CS:GO community is angry primarily because Valve has given everyone who previously bought the game a free Prime account, which before now was obtained by playing the game to a certain rank and keeping your 'trust score up', meaning you were a good, honest player by a few metrics - good teamwork, not being a hacker, etc. Everyone with Prime status could choose to match up with only other Prime players, which was an effective way of keeping you playing with good players. The concern is now that everyone has Prime who owned the game, and you can just pay ten quid to get it now, Valve has invited the russian hackers and mic spammers back into everyone's lobbies.

I'm sorry but you're just wrong. Any linguist will tell you there are reams of evidence showing that different words influence the way we think and act.

>Whens the last time you or anyone else for that matter threw a stone at a bird?
So you genuinely think that PETA's objective in encouraging people not to talk about throwing stones at birds is to stop their perceived epidemic of people literally throwing stones at birds? Maybe that explains why you think it's daft - you've totally misunderstood it?

Look, lad. Make yourself a cup of tea and have a bit of a think about how you're spending your Sunday. The linguistic evidence relates to grammatical structure (accusation sentences etc.) which impacts upon thinking patterns but that is a damn big difference to acting out given we have free will. If anything the very concept of this should be scary enough if we're outright doing brainwashing by calling a spade a teaspoon.

What goes beyond this i.e. words is a pseudo-science that dehumanises everyone (and in this case everything) and is only pursued by the most feckless HR graduates. People don't throw rocks at birds or go make lemonade when the tequila runs out because there is at the very least a complete divorce going on with what may have once been very practical proverbs.

>As for exactly what will happen when such individuals are identified, that is still a matter of discussion, says Donnelly. He says the intention isn’t to pre-emptively arrest anyone, but rather to provide support from local health or social workers. For example, they could offer counselling to any individual with a history of mental health issues that had been flagged by NDAS as being likely to commit a violent crime. Potential victims could be contacted by social services.

It essentially means a weakening of the presumption of innocence.

Very generally speaking, police and other authorities can't investigate the average innocent person with no hint at all that they might be guilty of a crime, "just because". The presumption of innocence in this case means that authorities are only allowed to become active when there is an indication that something might be up with you.

But if you gather data from pretty much every citizen for the specific purpose of checking if they have done something illegal, then that's already a few steps removed from the idea that generally speaking, an innocent citizen must be left alone.

Also, the effectiveness of this kind of mass data mining is doubtful. Many European countries have had blanket online data gathering and retention programmes in place, quite a few have also abandoned them again after public protest and high court rulings in those respective countries, and when they evaluated the results of all the data gathering, they very typically found that it didn't significantly reduce online crime itself, or even increase the rate of solved crimes, which had been the biggest argument in favour of the measure. Real professional criminals typically knew how to circumvent the data gathering, as they usually do, and the only people who got caught in slightly increasing numbers were a handful of hapless kiddie porn downloaders and filesharers. But even they increasingly began to successfully cover their tracks.

Most national high courts have ruled that all this did not justify putting an entire country's population under suspicion by keeping all their online data.

>in the US, for instance, a sentencing advisor used in some states has been recommending harsher sentences for black people because black people get harsher sentences

And these feedback loops of self evidence are what makes the whole idea so dangerous.

And it already occurs the same way with "heat maps" used by local police in some countries to predict at what time of day which areas of a city could see increased street crime. If you are then unlucky enough, especially as a black person, to be in that area at that time, then you are going to look guilty even if all you really veryfiably did was pass along that street out of sheer coincidence.

And then if you throw AI into the mix, the mere fact that you were in that area at a time when street crime was predicted to be most likely can worsen your crime probability score or whatever you want to call it.

I think Austria axed it completely, as well as the Czech Republic. And I think Frau Merkel's government wanted to go back to data collection after Germany's high court struck it down, banking on loopholes both in EU and German high court rulings, but some ISPs in Germany then sued the government on technicalities. And the end result is that they've got a law that says ISPs must store user data, but the ISPs aren't doing it because they won the lawsuit against the German government.

There was a whole story on that on Zdnet a while ago, pretty fascinating, can't find it now.

I'm in the market for a laptop, but I'm not sure if I can get away with meeting all my criteria.

- It'll be purely for business, the most demanding thing it will be opening is numerous Chrome tabs.
- It needs to run Windows software, with MS Office.
- I want it to be lightweight and no bigger than an A4 pad.

Is there any chance of me getting this for around £200?

I've been seeing refurbished X series Thinkpads from as little as £100, but maybe this is dodgy?

Do you lads know of something better?

I have a stack of annoyingly small hard drives that I can't quite bring myself to chuck out - probably seven or eight drives of between 160GB and 500GB.

500GB still seems like a useful amount of storage, but then I remember that there's a 4TB mirrored pair in my main machine and a 400GB MicroSD card in my phone.

It's still useful if you need to take stuff anywhere or like to have even more redundancy.

I have loads of these clear USB 3.0 enclosures, because I had about 10 old laptop drives I didn't want to destroy.

Even if it's just something like "a back up of the backup of my work laptop's files" it might save my arse one day.

Luckily my toilets have always been flushed but I know the feeling of walking into your bathroom to have a nice shit while you flick through bollocks on your phone and as soon as you get within range shoooom the phone slips out of your hand at an unreasonable speed straight into the toilet bowl.
