Are most people in a relationship happy?

I seem to have a number of friends who like to portray themselves as being in a perfect relationship when the reality tends to be markedly different. Do people stay in an unhappy relationship because they find it preferable to being alone or they find the breakup itself too much hassle; you have to unwind yourself financially from someone, you may be accustomed to the lifestyle supported by two incomes, there may be kids involved, you may feel there's social stigma involved in a failed relationship or you simply lack the balls to do initiate it. Do a lot of people just settle?

I'd be interested to know your thoughts.

I just caught myself going through the Facebook profile of someone who I was acquainted with as a teenlad. I found myself judging them for not "growing up" in the past 15 years, which was based squarely on what he was wearing, his hairstyle and the expressions he was pulling.

He's a local DJ so he's probably having more fun in life than I am and shagged more lasses than I ever will. I don't know why my mind went straight to judging him like this and it makes me feel bad.

Get in here fatlads.

I've made an effort to properly lose weight but have stalled in the last 2 months - and it's starting to creep up. I used to lift weights 3x/week and control the diet, but I can't lift for a while until some medical stuff gets sorted. This has taken a bit of a hit on my progress - or more likely,ive used it an excuse to slack.

What's your story?

P.s. I track calories and weight using my fitness pal.

I thought a stiffy is when blood fills your willy. So a normal state might be 10 litres of blood in the rest of the body and 10 ml in penis. When aroused, it's 1010 ml of blood in your penis and 9 litres in the rest of your body. So it's still the same amount of blood weight, just distributed differently.

Lads, I've been having a think.

The modern world means that you can stream whatever form of entertainment you want directly into your living room; sports, films, TV, you name it. I think we need to stop looking at streaming in a purely digital sense and start looking at it in a physical sense.

Imagine having a tap which means you can stream whatever you want that can flow down the pipes. You want some custard? There's a tap for that. You want some mashed potato? There's a tap for that. You want some gravy? There's a tap for that. We need to move from apps to taps and pipes. It would be revolutionary. Imagine the carbon footprint saved from lorries no longer having to deliver these loads to the supermarket and then for individual shoppers to go one-by-one to buy it and take it home. The likes of warm custard cooked en masse in one central bulk must surely be more efficient than the piecemeal approach of innumerable households cooking meals themselves on hobs and in ovens.

Obviously Big Shop will kick up a fuss as we cut out the middleman and there will be the initial outlay of creating a national network of pipes, but the long-term benefits would far outweigh it. It would be the next true industrial revolution.

Millennials throw away 633 meals a year because they don't know how to reheat leftovers

Millennials throw away 633 meals a year because they don't know how to reheat leftovers. Those who took part in the poll said they would rather bin food than re-heat it, admitting good food is going to waste.

Researchers found the amount of food millenials confessed to throwing away adds up to more than 1,700lbs. The poll, conducted by cookware brand Pyrex, found millennials - aged 18 to 34 - waste more than three times as much as people aged above 34 who throw out the equivalent of just 186 plates of a food a year - 225 kilograms or 493 lbs. And the millennial food waste mountain is more than double the average food waste in the UK of 300 plates of food - just over 800 lbs per household.

Almost a quarter of millennials (23%) admitted they do not know how to deal with leftovers. By comparison just six per cent of people aged over 55 said they did not know what to do with leftover food.

A further 18 per cent of millennials said they eat out instead of eating the food they have at home leading to even more waste. Just four per cent of those aged over 55 said the same.

A fifth of millennials (21%) said they create yet more waste because they get bored eating what they already have at home compared to just seven per cent of those aged over 55. One of the other main reasons good food is thrown out is because 38 per cent of people fear they will get sick if they eat it after its 'best by' date.

You do have to factor in that America is generally a more violent society. Which isn't limited to the fact that they've all got guns. The U.S. also leads much of the developed world in physical non-gun violence. But also, you are not going to get through to a ghetto kid in the Bronx who's just robbed a convenience store by playing social worker as a police officer. You'll be up against somebody who has never known anything besides gangbanging and selling drugs for a living. By that point, you're already dealing with decades of neglect by the social system. Which is no excuse for cops risking the death of a suspect, but as a culture, you do get garbage in - garbage out. If your attitude towards violence as a culture is cavalier, then your police will also have that same kind of attitude.

I'm not saying that there aren't council estate hoodlum yoofs in Britain who've never worked an honest day in their lives and whose criminal records fill several pages, despite all the best efforts of the council and social workers. But I think as a society, we spend more resources on taking care of people before they get to that point. There are plenty of taxpayer-funded juvenile crime prevention programmes, while institutions like that generally tend to struggle in America and desperately depend on donations from the public. In the U.S., the answer to youth crime is therefore very frequently juvenile prison or boot camp. Which will only harden teenagers, but not discourage them from becoming career criminals.

If you fix that problem, then you will also see American culture become a good bit less violent.

There's "our cops are violent because all of us are violent" and there's "our cops are trained to be and selected for being extra violent, on top of all of us being violent". If you read the article.

You know how people point at failed communist countries and say "look, socialism bad,no food"?

America is kind of the anti-thesis of that, so many of their problems basically come down to that laissez faire everyone for themselves approach to society with absolutely barebones social spending.

/b/437886 Poverty Protips
Due to various poorly timed low-IQ schemes collapsing thanks to Based Virus I got what I deserved and have been catapulted from posh cunt to getting £525.2 a month without any significant savings.

Now I think I have it somewhat under control by simply not going out and learning to cook poorly at home - but I realized doing my grocery shopping that I lack any good sense on what to buy and what's price efficient. Can some protips be shared here anonymously for idiots like me?

One thing I can contribute, which may be common sense again, is that I had never realized my broadband/phone contracts were negotiable. Apparently if you call and whine a bit the call center lad has the authority to give you a discount.

I found a lot of discounted pasta/sauce today in Tesco actually, I'm guessing demand was high during the lockdown and now they're stuck with too much of it. I'll add some beans and be healthy on top of it. I also learned about 5kg "ugly veg" boxes in lidl from moneysavingexpert, I'll get one of those in the weekend and maybe learn to make some fresh sauce from that.

Isn't dry pasta among the food items that are supposed to not go bad for five years?

Well this is part of a larger project of refurbishing the garage. It's got a flat roof and an inside rainwater pipe, which an architect friend has told me is a feat of engineering if you manage to build it properly so that the roof doesn't start leaking after just a few years. He said that 35 years without leakage was still a very good time frame, but the last two years or so, it began leaking profusely, especially this past winter, and there was a big water stain down the adjacent inside wall of about two square metres. It would have been easy to just paint over the water stain and be done with it, but the whole inside of the garage was in a worn state, not just from scrapes and scuffs on the walls and darkened areas from car exhaust emissions. There was rubbish everywhere and boxes of unspecifiable car parts and accessories, so I took to them with two large bin bags and cleared it all out. Some of it, like a new old stock unused Bosch ignition system for a Volkswagen T3, could be worth selling on eBay for a few quid.

Now that the walls are painted, the next step will be sealing the concrete floor with a polymer coating. Which will add to a nice refurbished appearance. And then it's on to the roof itself. I stripped off all the old weatherproofing down to the bare reinforced concrete, and I will have to rebuild it layer by layer.

Shamima Begum: Bring me home, says Bethnal Green girl who left to join Isis

On the day the caliphate suffered a mortal blow the teenage London bride of an Islamic State fighter lifted her veil. Her two infant children were dead; her husband in captivity. Nineteen years old, nine months pregnant, weak and exhausted from her escape across the desert, she nevertheless looked calm and spoke with a collected voice.

“I’m not the same silly little 15-year-old schoolgirl who ran away from Bethnal Green four years ago,” she told me. “And I don’t regret coming here.”

With those words and the act of lifting her niqab, a mystery ended. The girl sitting before me, alone in a teeming Syrian refugee camp of 39,000 people where she is registered as No 28850, was Shamima Begum, the only known survivor of the three schoolgirls from Bethnal Green Academy whose fate has been unknown at home since they fled Britain together in 2015 to join Islamic State.

Ms Begum may have reached comparative safety, yet she chastised herself for leaving the last Isis territory as Kurd forces, backed by the West, closed in.

“I was weak,” she told me of her flight from the battle in Baghuz, with something akin to remorse. “I could not endure the suffering and hardship that staying on the battlefield involved. But I was also frightened that the child I am about to give birth to would die like my other children if I stayed on. So I fled the caliphate. Now all I want to do is come home to Britain.”

Should someone who quite clearly doesn't regret going to join ISIS and is still sympathetic to their plight be allowed back in this country? Then again, she'd already been 'radicalised' by those closest to her in this country.

I'm relatively new to weight training. How much would you need to lift to have a body similar to Mac's? I know the aim is to continually increase the amount you can lift but I've genuinely no idea when looking at various physiques how much they'd roughly be able to and it'd be nice to have a mental benchmark to be working towards.

Thanks, lads.

100k is a lot more than I would expect (mostly because the BBC says £80k).

I assume a person tech savvy enough to have bitcoins wouldn't fall for that scam, for one thing the internet is so rife with people trying to seperate them from their bitcoins that I would assume that the ones quite this stupid would have been weeded out already.

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.

Let's say you preheat the oven. It takes 10 minutes to heat up and 20 minutes to cook = the oven is on for 30 minutes.

Let's say you don't preheat the oven. It takes 25 minutes to cook.

That's a saving of 5 minutes, or 16.67%. Big Appliance are laughing at you.

It also means your food is slowly brought up to temperature for the first 10 or so minutes, which at best makes food less crispy/more soggy and at worse increases the risk of food poisoning.

/e/23960 Most disappointing game you've ever played?
Not necessarily the worst, but the game which failed to meet your expectations. For me it's a toss up between Brink and Kingdom Hearts 3. Brink had a really cool setting but it was a pretty mediocre team based FPS. I thought it would be the defining game of the time but it seemed to peter out within a matter of weeks. Kingdom Hearts 3 was an unsatisfying conclusion to ~15 years of build up, and has probably the worst story I've ever seen in a AAA production.

How about you lads?

I hadn't heard of Amped 3 before, but reading this line of the synopsis has piqued my interest.

Autonauts. It should be right up my alley, I like Clonk, Terraria, Factorio, Starfall, some of them alone, some only with friends but Autonauts just gets the loop wrong. The map can get resources wrong by placing them far apart, so you may have a different experience, but for me I automated what I could and then had to hunt around for the one resource that would let me move on. By hiding it in the map.

I don't mind hunting for unattainable resources because I lack the XYZ for it,but running around a map to hunt for $basic_resouce so I can get to the next level is more tedious than fun.

I'd just like to say that as someone who spent two years of his miserable life staring at Excel through the lens of IDA Pro it's quite amusing to see a thread full of people who know how to use things like pivot tables to do the things they're actually intended to do rather than to cause an invalid memory access. Carry on.

I've done that before for that number, it was really more VBA work than anything, with pure excel people usually know enough to think they are using excel well, but don't know enough to know that their current models are crap, and when people do know enough to know their models are crap they usually fix it themselves, so it is harder market to work in than you would think.

Say you worked a remote IT job for a company based in, I don't know, Germany, but you actually lived in Japan via the 6 month visiting visa.

If you didn't pay those taxes... How would they even find out? I have friends who get away with it, but it's all cash in hand...

> Sadly they don't work if you work for US company while living outside the US.

I'm double guessing myself there, I think. Technically if you live in the UK and work for a US company then you're self employed in the UK. Although you'd probably have to at least set up a limited company and pay yourself a proper PAYE wage in order to swing this visa, which is all very painful.

Technically I'm "paid" by a US based consulting company and I declare taxes in the UK as self-employed. Would that be a good enough excuse to get a "B in lieu of H" visa?

I feel like showing up to the consulate and saying you're self employed in the UK and going to work for a US company for a few weeks unlikely to go over well and that you'd have more luck if you had a proper limited company with PAYE payroll set up.

It really does not. The only issues I've ever had at the US border was when I was in this situation. It was bona fide too, my company in the UK had employees, accounts, etc; we were doing a couple of weeks work on an installation - temporary - but it's the only time I got stopped at the border and then taken off to an interview room. Terrible and frightening.

If you're going over on a visa waiver you should just say you're visiting a client, it's never failed me in maybe a dozen work trips (knock on wood). It's a really stupid grey area where meetings are fine but actually doing work that money is changing hands for requires a work visa.

Or if you're really paranoid just go in via Las Vegas and get a connecting flight the next day. Just try not to max out your entire expense budget on blackjack and the drugs every damn cab driver will oh so subtly hint they can get you.

I got to see my grandmother who has been gone for a couple years now. It was weirdly vivid, just hanging out in her flat, spending time together. I went to the kitchen for something and suddenly realised "Oh, you're dead" and somehow managed to hold on long enough to give her a big hug and tell her I loved her. Woke up in tears. This has happened twice before over the years with other family who have passed, I'm not sure if it means anything but I'm glad for it, it was sad, but a happy kind of sad.

Went outside to discover that my car had been clamped with ransomware - the clamp had a screen on it that was telling me to send bitcoin to a wallet "or else". My immediate thought in my dream was this was a great excuse to buy a new car, so I think I have to take that into consideration. I was planning to just defeat the clamp's mechanisms, but I woke up, and now I'm frustrated because it feels like they won.

I had a dream that I was picking up a lass at a bar and she said she was in the mood for a threesome, and if I would mind coming to her place to meet her friend and then have that threesome. I said, yeah, that sounds like fun, so we went to her flat, and she said, "This is my friend!", and it was a male friend who was also her flatmate. So I said, oh wait, no no no, this is not what I agreed to, and she said, "Come on, it'll be fun!". But I just said to her "Next time, be a bit more clear on the details before you expect a guy to fuck you!", and then left.

I figured I'd make an /e/ equivalent of that great, big /beat/ thread.

Recently I have been slogging away on XCOM: Enemy Within with the Long War mod. Humanity is doomed as I'm simply incapable of holding back the torrent of battleships the aliens keep hurling at me.

It's bloody fun though.

I avoided playing this game because someone described the storyline as "a punch in the eye for brexiteers" and I hear enough lecturing from both sides already.
Is it actually a heavy handed "right wing = bad, bad = right wing" political allegory, or was that reviewer just projecting their own biases?

I'm only a little bit through the game, but as far as I can tell it's simply a dystopian satire heavily inspired by Nineteen Eighty-Four and Brave New World. It doesn't really have any relation to real-world politics beyond that - none of the Randian stuff that was in BioShock. If Brexiteers are seeing themselves mocked in the game it's probably the way it takes the piss out of the 'stiff upper lip'.

So I've been experimenting in one of the starting zones, and as a level 1 priest it took six uses of Smite to kill a level 1 trog. As a level 7 priest, it took six uses of Smite to kill a level 7 trog. When I am fighting alongside a player several levels below me, they are doing just as much damage as me (give or take a slight difference due to being a class with less/more damage output). So essentially there's no progression - you're pretty much always the same level of power. The only thing I've not taken into account is gear that boosts your stats (as that isn't readily available at this point), so maybe higher level gear is what actually makes an impact.

I think we can agree this game has shown a lot of potential, especially for indie devs.

Oh I just read that Microsoft bought them. Well fuck all that then.
