Huddersfield charity shop finally says goodbye to a shutter which lasted 26 years

That's it. That's literally it. A charity shop has replaced one of its roller shutters after having the same one for 26 years. It's all go in Huddersfield.

I challenge you lads to find a more pointless news story than this.

Not a big loss, tanks are a 20th century relic anyway.

Any war between advanced militaries in current year would be a totally impersonal affair wherein helpless footsoldiers are instructed to go and stand places, where they are occasionally instantly killed without warning by a remote drone miles away over the horizon. There would barely be any traditional fighting. Might as well not even bother with the guns.

No plan survives first contact with the enemy.

In 1913, nobody anticipated the extent to which machine guns and heavy artillery would turn battles into deadlocked attritional conflicts. In 1938, nobody anticipated the extent to which radios and fast vehicles would allow agile armies to sidestep entrenched positions and outrun reinforcements. Nobody can honestly say that they know what the theatre of war will look like after two advanced militaries use their anti-satellite missiles, EMP devices and god knows what classified technology they're keeping under their hats.

Thread #2 was over 1,700 posts long; thread #3 (>>27266) is now close to 2,800 replies and no longer loads on my phone at work. Let's have a new, hopefully final thread.

The current situation:
Everything is expected to reopen on the 21st of June 2021.
It might not, because cases are rising from the lesser reopenings and the dreaded Indian variant.
Vaccination is going well in rich countries. UK deaths are ~10/day.
Speculation is starting again that the virus might have escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, because it's such an intriguing coincidence, but reasonable people do not currently believe it was a deliberate Chinese conspiracy.
India is currently the country with the worst COVID-19 horror stories.

Will Dominic Cummings give any more evidence about the ineptitude of government handling, or has he said everything he wanted to say now?

I agree with your overall sentiment, but also think this is a slightly cartoonish representation of history. "Paranoid crazy hippies" were just the fringe of a growing mass movement of dissent in the U.S. throughout the 1960s, which was made up of all sorts of groups including students, academia, what remained of labour movements, the civil rights movement, anti-war protesters and veterans, and more.

I'm inclined to believe that perpetuating stereotypes about "crazy conspiracy theorists" is a very effective way of controlling dissent; you're basically misrepresenting the opposition. In fact, I believe there are internal FBI or CIA documents that explicitly stated that rumours of UFOs or speculation about the Kennedy assassination were to be encouraged and disseminated throughout popular culture, precisely for the reason that it distracts from real and evident political conspiracies like COINTELPRO.

I believe a similar tactic has been very skilfully employed since, and is likely to be a factor in what's happening now. Concerns for civil liberties have been very deliberately conflated with anti-science, anti-woman, anti-safety, and whatever else. The reality, of course, is that it's perfectly possible to both recognise the threat of COVID-19 but disagree with government measures taken under that rubric. We've just been polarised into thinking that anyone that disagrees with us must be a caricature.

Some people think that this is a result of the internet, but I don't think that's true either. The internet has accelerated it, but part of the reason the hippy stereotype exists is because of this caricaturing and misrepresentation of dissent. This can also have the strange effect of turning legitimate political movements into shallow cultural movements by attracting people who are just into the aesthetics of it.

I have certainly noticed that coronavirus conspiracies are of a much higher calibre than your usual Timecube lunacy. I think schools decided to teach kids critical thinking a few decades ago, so the people would see through lies and misinformation, and it has backfired because a certain level of lies and misinformation are needed to run a country. I don't know anyone who believes vaccines contain 5G mind control, but a lot of people are concerned about side effects that might not show up for a couple of years, and that's obviously impossible to disprove. And there are concerns about testing, and you need to get people to accept the vaccine so you can test it. I am 100% certain that entities try to shape public discourse; I just don't know how widespread it is or if it's our government or the Russians.

>and that's obviously impossible to disprove.

Just to say on this point, it isn't really, we have a really good idea of the long term effects of mRNA vaccines and any would be extremely unlikely. mRNA has a very short half life, it's incredibly unlikely to stick around long enough to cause direct effects for a long period of time or effects years later down the line. Any long term delayed effects would have to be down to the immune response, because of that we'd be seeing issues much sooner rather than later and at this point there's been something like over 3 billion doses administered. On the whole it's just very rare for any vaccine to have these long lasting/delayed negative effects that anti-vaxxers are worried about. Whereas the negative effects of long covid are much more likely.

>I think schools decided to teach kids critical thinking a few decades ago, so the people would see through lies and misinformation,

I'd be interested to know what you're referring to, here, because actually I think one of the main functions of education is to instill a certain level of compliance in people, and certainly to keep debate within certain boundaries. I think it's far more likely that whatever skepticism you see at the moment is the result of the kind of movements we were discussing before hand just making its way into the education system as previous generations became teachers.

>and it has backfired because a certain level of lies and misinformation are needed to run a country.

This depends in whose interests you would like the society to be run. You have to remember that the responsibility for the conflicted response to COVID-19 can't be placed on the public alone, although people seem far more inclined to attack eachother as 'covidiots' or 'anti-maskers' rather than criticise power. The UK government has managed to find the worst of all worlds in its policies; prolonged lockdown, overwhelming of the health system, and negative economic effects.

Personally I think there have been forms of dissent that have brought about hugely civilising effects on our society, and that the certain level of "lies and misinformation" you refer to are not in the interest of simply running a country, but running it in a very specific -- often violent and repressive -- way.

Someone on my road has not only concreted over their front drive but painted the concrete to match their front door and some other bits. Obviously the paint started coming off right away, and the concrete isn't flat so most of the time there's a puddle across 2/3 of the available space.

I hear this a lot about HOAs - they sound like a nightmare. All of my radio friends say they also stop them putting up antenna in their gardens; which is strange because when you visit the US the first thing that strikes you is the lack of "planning permission" as we would see it.

These posts reminded me of my parents' street, which is a casualty of cars becoming more widespread and bigger in size. Both sides of the street have a tenfoot, with every house either having a garage behind on a separate lot, or a smaller garage embedded into the back garden. The latter is much too small for a car nowadays, and the tenfoot offers far too little space to even get in and out, so everyone on that side of the street has been knocking down their front wall, putting a dropped kerb on the street, and just parking in their front garden, which has then made street parking a complete shambles, and makes the whole street look a mess.

It seems to be two extremes. If you live outside of an HOA, or in a traditional HOA which is actually run by the Os of the Hs, then you can pretty much do whatever you want (and people obviously do). If you live in one of these private HOAs, there *is* a "planning permission" process, but you're never gonna get approved for anything. A work friend lives in a similar HOA to me, and said that everyone just installed "playhouses" for their kids, since that's allowed, which just also happen to be tall enough for an adult man and completely filled with power tools.

Something similar at my place of work. Silly restructure. Mass redundancies.

Just after a couple of weeks when they told the team who was getting sacked, myself and 3 other people handed in our notices, and all of us were safe anyway. But we started looking because we didn't want to play about and wait for the executives to pick who they wanted gone. So now, a team of 16 will be a team of 2.

There is a recruitment freeze because of the restructure, so to get around the fact that they are losing close to 90% of the team, they decided to get contractors... on expensive day-rates...

I don't understand how these people think.

For me everyone's job is officially secure, aside from having to apply again, and instead of hiring consultants they just expected me to take on everything. Fortunately this has had quite the opposite effect where once I finished my in-tray everyone has kept assuming that I'm very busy and I no longer care enough about my job to mention it.

We all know the real reason, someone up top gets bored and runs with some stupid idea to make their mark.

I'm considering cycling to work and locking my bike up at the overground station. It's in West London.

The bike itself is a 10 year old hybrid only worth £~150 these days.

I have a Kryptonite d-lock and a puny combo lock.

The safest place to park your bike is next to a nicer bike with a worse lock.

The only bicycle locks that will actually stop a half-serious thief are the Kryptonite New York Fahgettaboudit Mini and the Abus Granit X-plus Mini 54. They're genuinely a pain in the arse to get open. Anything else can be popped open in about 15 seconds with a pair of long-handled bolt cutters or a bottle jack.

Some of the beefier motorbike chains will stop a professional thief, but they're hugely expensive and impractically heavy. Cable locks and folding locks are useless, chain locks are surprisingly easy to cut (they give the thief too much room to manoeuvre) and D-locks can only really be trusted if they've got at least a 13mm case-hardened shackle and they're just barely big enough to fit around the bike and post.

Fortunately you don't need to make your bike impossible to steal, just less attractive than the available alternatives. If there are two bikes on the same stand of similar value, a thief will go for the one with the worse lock. If there are two bikes on the same stand with equally good locks, a thief will go for the one with that is easiest to sell.

Making your bike harder to sell at a reasonable price is just as valuable as getting a better lock. Scrape off the decals, file off the brand names on the components, give the frame a really ugly re-spray with a rattle can. If you make your bike less attractive to a random bloke in a pub, you make it less attractive to a thief.

I know I'm a bit late to the party but I'm considering getting either a PS4 or an Xbox One. I'm assuming these days there's little difference between the two other than having the odd exclusive title. I've seen a few Xbox One bundles in the region of £150 - £200 so I'll probably go for one of them as they're cheaper than what I've seen for the PS4.

Have I left it too late, as in are the next generation of consoles expected any day now? Also, which games do you lads recommend? I'm a bit out of the loop with gaming.

I absolutely remember Argos having an offer in April because I budgeted for it. They were immediately out of stock because they'd all been bought up by scalpers and then sold for considerable mark-ups. Same story on Amazon where retailers were sold out and all you could get were scalpers or companies in HK where you'd be waiting for months if it arrives at all.

Then I realised that there's nothing on the Switch I'd want to play that couldn't be bought for my laptop and I have no use for a portable device.

I got an Apple watch thingy when they added heart beat measuring, mostly because it integrates with PagerDuty which I need for my job, but the stats were a neat gimmick that convinced me.

It's now a glorified oyster card for me with some NFC payment thrown in, so I completely agree. The one upside is that it's passable for navigation if your preferred maps app integrates with it.

The AB thing does have a lot of boring equal opps office politics stuff, but there are a couple of really nasty things in there, like blokes getting pissed up at work and crawling under the women's desks to get a look and not being remotely subtle about it, and the blokes who were openly passing around upskirt and fanny pics of the women. It got so much for one woman that she killed herself.

The Ubisoft thing is mostly about how the company is run by a bunch of rapists who got away with it for years and let other rapists get away with it for years, and how they've done absolutely fuck all about it. Lots of senior positions are held by the boss's family, including his son who may have been a rapist.

I'm going to attempt to quit smoking and was wondering if any of you had tips or experiences to share? We did have a thread a few years back but it seems to have disappeared from the catalogue, though from what I remember Allen Carr's book was highly recommended.

My stats if they help put things into context:
7 a day on weekdays, 4 on weekends. 9 years of smoking.

The discrepancy on the weekdays is that I have a work routine of smoking during my breaks. There's a question there of what I'm supposed to do if I'm not smoking.

That's an interesting hypothetical. If there were a magical alcohol-free scotch that tasted exactly the same, would I drink it?

If it tasted exactly the same, as in, somehow had the alcoholic taste without the other effects like Star Trek synthehol, if anything I would probably drink much more.

Two weeks later and I can report that I'm noticeably eating more but also that I've become much more popular on dating apps. The latter is as useful as a chocolate teapot at the moment but it's nice to learn that was the only thing holding me back. Unless Big-Aubergine boosts your profile when you quit.

What's worked for me is keeping score of the days and not wanting to break the streak. Last night I saw a couple smoking cigarettes and calmed the urge to go buy a pack by noting that I was near the two-week mark. Also drumstick squashies taste like shit now that I've stopped smoking.

It's a running joke at work that I never wear a coat and only drink cold drinks. I am the Ice King and I will drink slush deep into winter. And as >>14558 points out, once the sun really starts to cook the earth in the coming years, you will all be lining up to trade your women and ammunition for a tall cool plastic cup of blue raspberry.

Also the heat generated by the twin compressors when it's running is borderline uncomfortable, I'm sure left on long enough it'll heat my garage up entirely so I can have a tropical winter.

Department store Debenhams has officially gone into administration after the shop rejected plans by Sports Direct's Mike Asheley to save it.

FTI Consulting has now been appointed as administrators for the chain, whose shops will continue trading for now. Debenhams is expected to close 50 of its 165 stores in the future, but no timescale has been announced yet.

How come it seems like almost every high street shop is either in administration or on the brink of it?

You do need planning permission to convert a commercial property into a residential one, but as of next month it'll be a permitted development right under Class MA.

I'm curious how squatting rights intersect with planning rights, and if that's getting abused. If some interest wanted an industrial area turned into a residential development, could they secretly fund a commune to live in that area and "allow" them to build and develop amenities for a decade and then turn around and "buy them out" and go ham because now it's residential?

You could in theory, but you wouldn't really need to. The new reforms to the planning system give the presumed right to convert most commercial properties to residential use. Council planning departments have a very short list of grounds to object to such a conversion, otherwise they have to give you permission.

If you wanted to develop on a large scale you'd need to jump through some hoops with regards to transport impacts, your development needs to have natural light in every habitable room, but otherwise there's really nothing they can do to stop you.

I'm currently looking for a suitable light industrial unit to convert, because I've always wanted a house with three-phase power and a loading dock.

You're still constrained by building standards, though. If you're planning to build hutches for students, they have to be able to stretch their legs out and express natural behaviours such as shitting in buckets. It's a low bar.

It's going to be fascinating to see some of the horrendous conversions. My local council already (8 years ago?) converted a load of their city centre offices into student hovels in a strange arms-length deal. The conversions done with cardboard, string and piss buckets will be much more fun.
I'm pretty much in favour of it as a plan - have people actually live in city centres again, it's just the implementation that's going to be grim at times.

>Four boys and a girl have been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder after a 13-year-old boy was stabbed to death in Reading. Oliver Stephens, known as Olly, was pronounced dead at Bugs Bottom fields, Emmer Green, on Sunday. The five teenagers, all aged 13 or 14, remain in custody, according to Thames Valley Police.

A 13 year old girl paying for her boyfriend to get stabbed to be taught a lesson after he was mad about her sending nudes to other people. I'm pretty sure at that age I was still playing with Pokémon.

I am a Brit living in a filthy foreign country with very little sports broadcasting, and am rather disappointed I'm missing out on one of the few remaining things I like about the BBC: excellent Olympics coverage.

Opera now categorises its VPNs by continent rather than country, so I can't just pop on a UK VPN and go to iPlayer. Free proxy IPs from the internet yield only unstable connections.

Do I have any other options for watching, short of paying a subscription or flying somewhere else?

> Some hobby sports are now being picked up as niche events, like climbing and skateboarding.

I tend to enjoy those "niche" competitions a lot more than the more mainstream events as for the first couple of events at least the former tend to fit closer to the modern olympic idea of "amateur athletes" that's been completely lost in the established disciplines. While there's undeniable beauty in seeing athletes perform asymptotically closer to the maximum the human body can achieve, I find more fun and joy in seeing a slightly scrappy performance by people who are quite good and really try hard.

The Paralympics is outstanding in every conceivable way. My all-time favourite sporting moment is from the Paralympics (the 200m in London 2012; I forget the name of the disability category but you'll know it when you see it). Also, they're all niche sports; it's the ultimate hipster tournament. Sure, sprinting and hurdles and cycling are pretty generic, but not when you have no legs.

Also the technology is fundamentally different. Buses and trains use series hybrid systems, which are basically just an electric motor hooked up to a diesel generator. Hybrid cars use parallel hybrid, where both the electric motor and the petrol engine are connected to the wheels. Parallel hybrid systems are more complex, but they allow for clever tricks to boost performance and improve efficiency, particularly on small engines with big turbochargers.

With that said, hybrid is a stopgap technology - the (very near) future is pure electric.

A woman in an office I used to work in visited me while I was in bed. I quickly got my work laptop out and went straight to business to cover the fact that I had just woken up. After a while she awkwardly left and another woman I used to work with came in. "Oh for fucks sake, can't I get some peace!" I thought to myself.

Went straight to work again to resolve her queries but she became annoyed and left repeatedly saying that she won't be visiting me again. Then I realised that it was my birthday and they'd really come to say hello and wish me a happy birthday. Maybe I should be less emotionally detached at work and also in my personal life but that's difficult.

I remember something like this making the news once, a cash machine was spitting out £20 to anyone that asks for £10 so it quickly became very popular with people emptying their accounts. The bank was fine with it and let them all off.

In your next dream just take the money.
