It's extremely slow-paced, and there's a lot of little distractions which could easily feel like grinding or farming if you're usually more into high-paced games. Visually, it's absolutely stunning, and the sandbox feels completely seamless. To me it sort of feels like the first Mass Effect game if there was no story whatsoever and you were just hopping around from planet to planet doing odd jobs and working on your own stash of ships and loot.

A great deal of it is just pretending. Acting less clever and more boring than you really are.

Whenever you're saying something based on obscure trivia that only a complete nerd would know, use vague terms like "I think I read this thing once that said..." or "I think somebody once told me..." even though you actually know with 100% certainty about whatever it is you're saying because you're a spod. Generally just give the impression that you spend your evenings watching Line of Duty like everyone else, not reading about 19th century naval warfare.

If you get stuck, I've noticed that asking people what they're having for dinner always seems to be a conversational get out of jail free card.

There's a lot you can say on this.

1. Like others have said, you think about the people around and what they do that is successful in a given environment. As an example, I copied some of the mannerisms of an arty girl I used to work with who had extremely good social skills and it's worked a charm since in professional (and even some non-professional) settings.

2. You can also think about what you do as well that works and what doesn't, it's why we're all plagued by regrets over faux pas nobody else remembers after all. You're going to make mistakes and will learn from them so you get yourself out there.

3. Go for a change of scenery, move and get a new circle of friends. I'm always going to be a campy autist but it's surprising how much of that has changed based on my surroundings and peers, yet if I catch up with some old mates for uni we all immediately fall back into who we were 10 years ago.

/b/442884 Hypotheticals
I sometimes play out hypothetical scenarios in my head and what I'd do. I thought it would make for an interesting thread if I started listing them and getting some solutions, it might even be a learning experience as there's usually things I don't have an answer to.

So my first go:

If you broke one of your legs, how fucked would you be? How about both? That's not a threat. I was thinking about it the other night and how, frankly, I'd probably give breaking my legs a miss. My main problem is that I live up a few flights of stairs with no disabled access so I'd be trapped. I assume you can ask a delivery driver to come upstairs if you explain your position, so I wouldn't starve, but if both my legs are broken there's getting home from the hospital or going back as the legs heal.

I'd probably have to move out and live with my parents for at least a year. Do removal companies offer a service where they will pack your things up even if you don't organise? I don't much fancy my family finding my fleshlight.

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.

Sounds like this is a managing expectations problem. Your girlfriend has to understand you are not their shrink and aren't available 100% of the time. And you need to accept you can't fix every single problem and when your girlfriend is upset like this it isn't directly under your control or fault. Life can't be perfect all the time. This problem in particular though if it hasn't fixed itself by tomorrow morning I will be amazed.

It appears largethreadmodlad has also locked the previous iteration of this thread; Mark VIII it is, then.

I take perfect care of my nails. I don't bite them, I cut in the standard flat formation every 3-5 days, and scrub under them in the shower. So why the actual fuck are my cuticles bleeding? Putting the plaster over to catch the blood means I can't play my bass properly, and that pisses me off.

The minor rants and piss-offs thread seems like a great place to describe my co-worker, who is absolutely obsessed with putting useless and convoluted accessories into our work computers.

Just the other day, I noticed a machine which had a pair of serial cards installed into each of its PCIe slots. There was no reason for this PC to have half a dozen COM slots, but there they were, occupying a load of space and stopping one of my USB instruments from working.

That same machine had one of these ridiculous USB hubs attached to it, big enough that it needed its own mains power supply, which had been plugged in for the last few years despite nobody going near that machine since 2014. It bears mentioning that the PC has plenty of USB slots, and that only two of them were being used for the keyboard and mouse at this point.

Last year when we went remote, there were all kinds of issues with people's remote PC displays not working or acting up, all of which caused by this guy's fanatical use of as many different AV adapters and splitters as he could find, using a DP-to-DVI adapter in one case to connect a PC to a monitor which actually had a DP port.

Sage because I'm triggered by a USB charging station I saw on the internet.

It hasn't been posted here, but it is true.
>In 1979, the paper endorsed Margaret Thatcher in the year's general election at the end of a process which had been under way for some time, though The Sun had not initially been enthusiastic about Thatcher.
>During the general election of 1983, The Sun ran a front page featuring an unflattering photograph of Michael Foot, then aged almost 70, claiming he was unfit to be Prime Minister on grounds of his age, appearance and policies, alongside the headline "Do You Really Want This Old Fool To Run Britain?"[53]
>During the 1987 general election, The Sun ran a mock-editorial entitled "Why I'm Backing Kinnock, by Stalin".[60]
1992: It's The Sun Wot Won It (but there isn't a handy quote from the Wikipedia page for this one)
>The Sun switched support to the Labour party on 18 March 1997, six weeks before the General Election victory which saw the New Labour leader Tony Blair become Prime Minister with a large parliamentary majority, despite the paper having attacked Blair and New Labour up to a month earlier.
>Despite being a persistent critic of some of the government's policies, the paper supported Labour in both subsequent elections the party won. For the 2005 general election, The Sun backed Blair and Labour for a third consecutive election win
>on 30 September 2009, following Brown's speech at the Labour Party Conference, The Sun, under the banner "Labour's Lost It", announced that it no longer supported the Labour Party:[136] "The Sun believes – and prays – that the Conservative leadership can put the great back into Great Britain".[137]

This kind of reporting does more to help 'the otherside' than a 100 paul Joseph Watsons ever could. The pandering is so transparently obvious it makes me wonder it makes me presume that there are plenty of other instances where it wasn't so immediately clear, and therefore question if the agenda or narrative they are pushing has any truth at all. When people talk about the marginalisation of men, or feminism doesn't care about equality only women's special interests they can reference this and it is evident that they have a point.

>Covid: Britons fly via Turkey to avoid costly quarantine

>UK travellers returning from "red list" countries are flying home via Turkey to avoid hefty hotel quarantine fees. Passengers are breaking their journey in Istanbul, and staying in hotels there for a fraction of the cost they would have to pay in Britain.

>Travellers from countries on the red list would otherwise face bills of up to £1,750-per-person to isolate in a hotel if they flew to the UK directly. Those using the route must still quarantine at home once back in the UK.

>One hotel worker in Istanbul said he had seen British nationals flying in from laplanderstan, India and Bangladesh - which are all on the UK's red list. The BBC has also spoken to travellers returning from laplanderstan to the UK, many of whom were attending weddings or funerals and say they couldn't afford the cost of quarantining once the rules changed. As long as they isolate at home for 10 days after returning from a non-red list country, they are not breaking the UK government's Covid rules.

The person was stood against the window with a young dog, peering into the pool of children across the far end.
As i aproached, it seemed to me a lifeguard was also coming 'round to investigate from inside - no eye contact was made. What other reason would staff have to come all the way to the opposite end of the pool where no users were present?
As i passed i asked loudly "Do you have a family in there?", to which the person said yes and mumbled something as i walked off.

It's generally known that this location is inapropriate to stop at, especially so if your face is pressed to the glass like this persons was.

All i can think is to talk with the receptionist/manager and offer to pay for blinds to be put in the relevant windows.
I'm trying to convice myself it was right to 'confront' this person yet i feel bad for doing so.

I for one would rather not be part of a community of paranoid curtain twitchers who scream carpet-bagger! every time a lone man pauses to check their phone within half a mile of a playground.
That kind of behaviour has a much more corrosive effect on the community as a whole than the occasional potentially creepy guy who's motives the OP jumped to conclusions about looking over a pool fence.

For example:

I remember reading an article about a similar survey from the UK a couple of years ago with similar results but google isn't being particularly helpful.

Maybe the issue here is my perception with regard to children. Both my parents were abused, so i've been vaguely aware of that sort of thing from too young an age. It's like i'm trying to push too far the other way. Projection, init?
Just for context, >>/emo/30452 was my thread also.

I still think the pool guy's was unusual behavior, and i sort of recognised the alleged culprit as someone who was locally known to be engaging in disproportionately aged relationships (though i didn't know that until after i spoke - he looked back at me).
The day previous to this i recognised someone else in the same general location who was historically accused of public masturbation before children. This must have been playing on my mind.

The recolection of these 2 factors seems to add more weight away from the 'just let it be' attitude apparent here (which i may well be misunderstanding). I'm moderately aware of the process by which we search for complimentary evidence and discard anything contrary to our conclusions, by the way.
This is emotionally charged so it's difficult to let go - how could someone forgive themselves for discarding the safety of a child for fuck sake.
Where is the ballance between hypervigilance and complete apathy?
How do people develop their ability to appropriately detect and mitigate threats?

I'm not sure where to go from here. It's quite possible i made a mistake in my comment to the guy looking into the pool - i've made such faux pas before though of lesser consequence.

Several lads here seem to have a grasp of investments and so on. Do any of you have a regular income outside "earner income"? What kind of category does it fall into, and how did you come into it?

I had a nice image, but brian isn't playing ball today. It's a list of different (very broad) types of income:
1 Earner income : work a job
2 Profit income : buy and sell
3 Interest income: lending money
4 Dividend income: owning stock
5 Rental income: renting out property
6 Capital gains : assets increase in value
7 Royalties: others use your work

>It is a film about a martial arts tournament where no martial arts tournament ever takes place.

I think you hit the nail on the head, there.

They also missed a trick with the Cole character. Even a bit of lip service could have given the film a fun theme about contrasting modern rough-and-tumble MMA with ancient and mysterious martial arts. Instead he just sort of blithely accepts everything.

The superpowered melee was too Marvel-esque, things become so much less interesting for me when people turn into darting CGI figures.

Not to keep banging the drum, but that first scene was just the perfect balance. Really well co-ordinated martial arts and stuntwork, wonderfully shot, inventive with props, with just a touch of mysticism and strange supernatural powers on top.

Bi-Han was also effectively the main villain, and it was amazing. Why not keep Shang Tsung as a shadowy sorcerer pulling the strings behind the scenes? Why don't we just capture glimpses of an old wizened man becoming younger as he feeds off the souls of fallen combatants? Have Bi-Han bring his assassinated victims to something that looks like the crypt keeper? It's a film for Christ's sake, we're meant to fear the Big Bad, be creative, don't just have him stand there like a lemon behind walls of electricity.

Yeah, he's vulgar and gives the film a lot of personality. His winking to the audience gets a bit tiresome at points ("u wot m8 u shoot fire out of ur hands???") but the actor gets the spirit of the character perfectly. Even better than the 1995 one, I'd say.

I think everyone I ever talk to under 50 and above the age of 10 has developed a disease where they are such a pedant they strip the joy out of everything and focus on arguing some minor point. Everything is about technically correct arguing the point, never the concept presented or advancing the conversation in a positive way.

I've seen friends talk their way out of hanging out with each other because they got caught on some minor point of what we were going to do when we met up so the event never got organised. The law of Triviality seems to poison everything, and is probably the reason only egotists seem to make society advance.
I couldn't decide if this was a /101/ or belonged here I felt here suited better.

Loads of British Indian people are natural Thatcherites. Their families really did start a successful business from nothing and they don't see why everyone else can't. As a demographic their household income and share of wealth is well above average. Shamanismophobia is rife in the British Indian community for somewhat understandable historical reasons, which is often veiled in a more socially-acceptable "we need the right sort of immigration and immigrants need to integrate" sort of rhetoric.

Priti Patel genuinely represents the views of a large proportion of British Indians. British laplanderstanis and Bangladeshis overwhelmingly vote Labour, but a lot of people on the left seem unable to tell them apart.

With that said, Patel is clearly a bit psychopathic - before politics, she did PR for British American Tobacco.

Not really, many of them were upper caste poshos by Indian standards. Coming to Britain that still puts you on the lower end of the scale, but it's not like they had nothing. That and it's easy to run a profitable shop when you don't follow any of the rules and you're using your twelve kids for unpaid labour.

But that's just like you say. Natural Thatcherites.

I would be interested to know in data whether the Indians who make a good living in the UK did so by accumulation of generational wealth, or whether they came here with a good amount of money, and to what degree established networks plays into it.

Pretty sure it's just the latter two m8, her brother does all the songwriting if I'm not mistaken.

Not like that's unusual in pop mind, it's pretty common for them to be more of a performer than an artist. It's a bit annoying how most people don't seem to draw a distinction though.
