How was my wheelie bin lid sealed shut if it's still above freezing? Does filthy bin water freeze at higher tempratures than non-bin water?

Bin grease could in theory solidify above zero, or perhaps the bin itself had air pressure difference between the inside and out, causing the lid to be sealed closed, like wot happens with a fridge door sometimes.

You can get light frosts when the actual air temperature is still above zero. Complicated things to do with air currents and radiance and stuff.

In my, uhh...empirical research, I've noticed that a lot of East Asian (mostly Korean and the Chinese) gender benders use these face filters for their videos. They're impossible to wank to because they give off strong uncanny valley vibes. The skin is too smooth and the eyes are too robotical. The Japanese were really on to something with their whole imperfect perfection/wabi sabi thing.

What kind of mental gymnastics do you have to engage in to call yourself gay and eskimo at the same time? Do they actually abide by the teachings of the snow or are they like atheists who call themselves cultural Christians because they were in a nativity play once?

The bit you tend to miss as an atheist is that most religious people know on some level that religion isn't real, they just like it. you focus on all the absurdities and contradictions, because you take at face value what they know is just a weird collective live action role play.

eskimocs tend to be a bit more serious about their religion than the average Christian, but that really isn't saying much when you consider how watered down of a religion Christianity is nowadays. most of it is cultural etiquette, i'd argue most muslanders don't drink for roughly the same reason you didn't want your mam and dad finding out you smoked when you were 15.

acknowledging this though i think religious institutions/interest groups should be afforded less political clout. imagine if there was a political lobby for Warhammer enthusiasts or furries.

Humans constantly try to exploit or harness any sort of natural forces they know exist; I think it's a fairly solid argument that nobody actually believes in YWH if they don't spend all their time trying to figure out how to hogtie him like Gulliver and force him to act as their own personal genie. Yeah people pray but you can pray to a river and it won't generate power until you put in the graft and build yourself a hydroelectric dam.

In strictly income related terms, what is 'doing alright' in 2020? What is middle class?

There are rules of thumb that were established a long-time ago, earning your age being something of a minimum standard while earning 40-60k meant you owned an Aldi. You will probably notice that these rules originate from the 00's though and while calculators do exist they seem to apply national averages which seems odd as a large bottom doesn't mean you eat lots of camembert.

The median income for taxpayers is £22,400 and the median household income is £29,600. If you earn more than that, you're doing better than most people. What kind of lifestyle that affords you depends very much on where you live and whether you have kids.

With that said, I think that beyond the level of near-poverty, "doing alright" is much more about managing your expectations, living within your means and building yourself a secure financial foundation. A lot of people who earn well above the average still feel poor, because they compare themselves to an unrealistic standard. A lot of people who could live comfortably are beset by constant money worries because they're living beyond their means.

Having a nice car or a big house doesn't actually make much difference to your day-to-day life, but being financially secure is life-changing. Pay off your debts, build a rainy day fund, take night classes to add another string to your bow and you'll play the rest of your life on easy mode.

There is a heap of conspiracy theorist prattling elsewhere online. Normally I'd shrug, but given what's happening with COVID and other prevailing political trends I'm worrying that this 'Great Reset' will end up being a reboot of Feudalism.

LinkedIn makes me sick to the core. It's like entering an ultracorporate hellworld with no connection to reality.

I agree, but I view it from a ruthlessly pragmatic perspective. Job alerts, making the occasional cold contact with people who have similar research interests, etc.. I've actually made some decent use out of it in the few years I've had one.

In theory, there's nothing that you can do with LinkedIn that you can't do with e-mail and mailing lists, yet for whatever reason some people are more open to being contacted on there. Maybe there's an informality to it, the ability to see a human face, it doesn't get buried in work e-mails, or any/none of the above.

Just don't scroll through the newsfeeds, unless you've meticulously curated it or enjoy reading mindless corporate propaganda.

1. For cyber-stalking work contacts or women you're talking to on dating apps.
2. Once you have a high-skill career with experience so you can laugh at offers for consultancy work.

If you're looking for the kind of work LinkedIn was designed for at the moment then you're better off just applying for public sector jobs. At the very least once you beat the thousands of other applicants you won't have to worry about immediately being made redundant.

Linkedin is facebook for the underemployed/unemployed.

Have you ever had any significant job leads obtained from Linkedin? Have you ever had any significant interactions on Linkedin that has resulted in an improvement in your career?

I had an account from 2007 to 2019 when I deleted it in a huff.

With respect to businesses: if you're not the buyer or the seller, you're the product.

Better to use your offline social/professional network, you can get as many leads from mates on facebook, and be diligent in a job hunt on job boards (especially specialist job boards).

During my last job hunt I applied for >300 positions in a 3 month period. I had about 5 interviews. I only submitted a one-page CV and cover letter for each. If there was any kind of corporate application system that required me to set up an account and pick my high school subjects from drop down menus I didn't apply thinking correctly that I wouldn't be considered for any such position.

Settle an argument for me: Do you put eggs in the refrigerator?

I had long assumed that eggs only went in the fridge if you're buying the American ones where the shell has been washed. For proper eggs you don't put them in as moisture builds up on the inside of the shell.

Well, I just looked at the egg carton in my cupboard and it says to keep them refrigerated for best results. I don't know what to believe anymore.

I left an egg on a radiator for a month to give to someone as a prank, expecting it to smell when cracked, but he cooked and ate it without noticing and before I could stop him. It didn't make him ill and he said it tasted completely normal.

I think you can tell when eggs are off, the yolk seems to stick to the inside of the shell more than usual. I've had a few recently where it was slightly stuck and they didn't taste off.

A little bit of experimentation is required, but I find 4:30 to 4:45 is ideal for soft boiled eggs, if you're taking them from the fridge and putting them straight into a rolling boil.

Given that the same research shows that Asian people have had a similar rise in racist experiences to black people, they may have a point about the rise not being entirely due to BLM's actions.
Black and Asian Lives Matter would be so much easier to pronounce though, just BALM. Then you'd get some interesting confused mythology referencing Poe; "There is no BALM in Gilead" as in, there should be no minorities in the promised land, only that gets tied up with how Atwood used Gilead in her books.

Lads, I'm trying to track down a film I saw one night on Channel 4 years ago.

The gist of it is a guy pretending to be a photographer scams his way across Italy. Is joined by a woman running away from a convent. Then after conning a mafia funeral he ends up jailed.

I know it wasn't a fever dream.

I always want something I've never gotten elsewhere when I watch a film, and Colassal certainly delivers. 100% recommended watch on my part.

I watched this last night before bed and it was so good I decided to bump this old thread because it's basically the perfect definition of a hidden gem.

If you've ever stayed up watching some rubbish TV documentary about the Rendlesham Forest incident then this might be your new favourite film. Otherwise I'd recommend it because of how well shot, written and edited it all is. It's not Signs or anything though, just to make that clear. Now one fights a monster with a stick. Most of the people who worked on it or starred in it don't even have Wikipedia pages, so again, the definition of a hidden gem.

Do any of you lads have a VR set up? I'm seriously thinking about getting a Rift S. VR is now at a price point where I think I could justify it to myself, but the question is - will the novelty wear off - are there enough engaging experiences yet or will it be a cool toy for a bit that then doesn't have anything else to offer?

I was thinking about getting it partially for games, and partially as a way of getting cardio in in a more fun and less COVID-getting way than going to the gym.

The Rift S seems to be the best value option but I don't like the fact it's owned by Facebook - is stretching that extra £100ish to get a Vive Cosmos worth it? Also, I have a Ryzen 3600X and RTX 2060, will that be good enough?

Thanks lads. Thads.

GTA V VR mod works surprisingly well. It's very fun to explore the world map in full VRw.

However, the mod renders the left and right eye alternately, so each eye is always one frame offset from the other, though this can be disabled at the cost of losing stereoscopic effects (which doesn't affect the game all that much, imo). What it does mean though is that now I've come out of about an hour of playing it, the real world feels very strange indeed.

The game is fully playable though, although the Menyoo's laser sights option is a good one to turn on.

2ish month update:

I'm still using it every day, even if just to crack one out, and the novelty hasn't worn off. Been playing Fallout 4 VR for the past couple of weeks, and despite its many, many problems it's far more engaging in VR than it ever was in 2D. Weirdly it almost feels like the Nuka-World DLC was made for VR but it has never officially been released.

At this point I'd say I've got my money's worth out of it, and think that whilst VR still has a way to go, especially with the Quest 2 launching at £299, it's something that I think is worth looking into for more people.

>Residents of an Austrian village will ring in the new year under a new name – Fugging – after ridicule of their signposts, especially on social media, became too much to bear.

>They finally grew weary of Fucking, its current name, which some experts say dates back to the 11th century.

Fewer people believe the BBC to be an impartial broadcaster than ever before, with the corporation’s news output falling below Sky, ITV/STV, Channel 5, and Channel 4 in the latest Ofcom report.

According to Ofcom’s BBC Performance Tracker, only 54% of UK adults agree that the BBC provides news that is impartial. However, separate research comparing the BBC to other UK broadcasters found that 58% of people thought the corporation was impartial. This is compared to Sky’s 69%, Channel 4’s 66%, ITV/STV’s 63%, and Channel 5’s 61%.

Perception of the trustworthiness of the BBC’s news output also varied across the socio-economic spectrum. The Ofcom report found that 60% of people in the higher AB socio-economic group thought the corporation was impartial, compared to just 49% in the lower CD group.


https://www.thenational.scot/news/18901196.bbc-ofcom-report-shows-corporations-impartiality-score-record-low/

Younger audiences are treating BBC services such as iPlayer as an afterthought, according to a warning from Ofcom, as the media regulator revealed that people aged 16-34 spend less than an hour a day consuming BBC content.

This age group has reduced its use of the BBC by 22% in three years, according to Ofcom’s annual appraisal of the corporation’s performance. People in the age bracket are drifting away from traditional broadcast channels such as BBC One and instinctively heading towards YouTube, Netflix and Spotify, rather than the corporation’s online services. As a result younger audiences tend to only use iPlayer “when they know what they want to watch, rather than as a destination to browse for new content”.


https://www.theguardian.com/media/2020/nov/25/ofcom-bbc-services-such-as-iplayer-an-afterthought-for-younger-audiences

The loyalty of older and wealthier BBC viewers is draining away as the corporation desperately tries to attract younger audiences, a report from the media regulator has revealed. Ofcom also said yesterday that the corporation was out of touch with large swathes of licence fee payers around the UK, as its audience continues to fall.

Classical programming, radio or otherwise, is still sadly largely dominated by drawing a broader audience in with more popular pieces. Not that they're bad pieces by any means, just that total overexposure makes them banal and washes away any contextual significance, take The Ride of the Valkyries which has taken on a different flavour than setting the scene for deceiving and defying a vengeful god.

That said, your point does stand. Radio 3 really does go out of its way to introduce the listeners to something "unusual" or not as well known.

The BBC's main charm is in local radio, Radios 3, 4 and 6, BBC Four and the occasional televised sport.

Last night I was a hatchet man in the roman empire during the first century, think captain Willard in Apocalypse now. I had the task of tracking down and putting down a Jewish uprising by decapitating the cult leader (the leader was jesus obviously).

When I got to Jerusalem I went in a cave/open tomb in the garden of gethsemane where I found a translucent fetus like brain stem hovering in the darkness as I reach the height of my back swing to sever the brain from the stem there was a rush of energy/ light towards it and it formed into a weird small alien in the 80s foam latex style (think midget in a costume like the small Stations in bill and ted) and declared 'no! For I am the light of the world'

Next scene we are outside the cave and 'jesus' is giving a sermon on the mound speech I don't remember it fully but it concluded with the line 'follow me and I will make you richer than kings' it is apparent from the context this is an advert and jesus is actually trying to sell us on coming to the shopping centre that he has just opened.

I was in a shop to buy a few things, and then I suddenly saw my neighbour's credit card in my wallet, for some reason, so I paid the £35 or so with it. When I left the shop, I became worried that it would affect my own credit score if it came out that I was illegally using my neighbour's credit card unbeknownst to him, and so I was trying to figure out how to send him the money back via Paypal, maybe with a message that I was sorry I used his card. But I then realised that I had no idea what his Paypal handle was.

It is a particularly British thing to mentally link up "bored truckers" to "going dogging".

I've never been dogging, but is it a favourite of truck drivers?
