What's the best method for making tomato sauce?

I usually slowly cook a few tins of plum tomatoes, but it doesn't quite taste as rich and strong as I'd like. Should I be adding in tomato puree?

3 tins of chopped tomatoes

Glug of oil
A few herbs
A squeeze of tomato puree

Lads are you worried about the coronavirus?

I've purposely not read up about it. Mainly because the SARS, Swine Flu, Bird Flu and Ebola threat was over-hyped by the media. Prediction wise, I think after several months it will be contained and everyone will eventually forget about it.

But do _not_ use the loppers to cut steel. It won't cut the steel, and you'll have an annoyingly damaged set of loppers. You'll certainly chip a chunk out of the blade, and may snap the anvil bit, and you can't get replacements anywhere. Fiskars = Bastards.
Seconding hacksaw or dremel. You'd need a pretty chunky set of wire cutters.

I've got SKS guards on my bike, unless it's completely blunt your hacksaw will do just fine. You only need to get about 1/2 to 2/3 of the way through before they snap cleanly enough (the ends will be hidden in the retainer nipple anyway).

>>2648
If they are SKS guards, then they need to be trimmed roughly to size, roughly within 1/4".

Re-potted the sixteen largest chillies. Their root balls were sodden which isn't ideal so I'll leave off watering them in their new pots for a bit.
Annoyingly, the labels for five of them have bleached in the sun so I have no idea what they are. I have six left that are hardly growing; two scorpions and four also unlabelled. Not sure if I should sacrifice them to make space for some other plants or not yet.

Those look really nice. Mine look a bit more delicate with smaller leaves, but I guess it's down to different cultivars. My Etna Piccante plants already look greatly different from the "standard" chillies I've grown from shop bought seeds.

/emo/23560 Minor angst and existential dread, Mk. I
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.

Everyone gets down from time to time, let's put some Sisters of Mercy on and wallow together for a while.

Trouble is the room she's working in is the same room I have all my hobby/unwinding stuff in. I can't really shift it all, I could go in the living room but really all that room is for is watching netflix. Nothing productive to do. I was happy to adjourn to the bedroom instead and communicated that I'd like to be left alone, but it was her that chose to interrupt the wank odyssey that was my plan B.

I've offered her my laptop to use so she can work from the bedroom or living room instead, which would theoretically give us more flexibility if either of us wants space. But she doesn't want to (she makes it sound physically impossible, because the screen is too small. This is something that irks me a bit by now, her refusals to meet me in the middle are always concrete absolutes, and I feel like it's just excuse making a lot of the time.) Like I say I feel like I'm the one making all the compromises and she's just unwilling to budge from her comfort zone at all- That troubles me because we both need to be willing to do so or it will just breed resentment.

I'm just really not sure how to get that point across to her without sounding accusatory I suppose, and I always question myself too much about whether I'm just under the illusion of perception bias.

Same things as ever: social isolation (I did it before it was cool) has turned my brain to soup, failed at almost every academic persuit I've undertaken, little emotional control, not much money, no interests, even less hope (speaking personally and more widely). There's just no point. I'm either numbed to it all or actively pissed off, that's all I feel these days and it has been as such for some time.

CBT's make 'em ups nonsense, pills suck and I'm too fragile to sort myself out. Even when I was happy I was actually just faking it, really. Once I got burnt out by that I was back to square one.

Well, it fluctuates because it's where highly-energised particles from the sun collide with the Earth's magnetic field. It's very sparse but can get very, very hot - superheated plasma temperature hot if you're unlucky. It veers between too cold for life and too hot for it, while having such a low density that any liquid water will instantly evaporate. Overall it's the last place you'd expect a microorganism to stick around. On top of everything you've got very little protection from cosmic radiation.

In both cases, they're choosing a psychologically easy lie over a difficult truth.

If COVID was man-made, we can track down the bastards who made it and torture the antidote out of them or something. It's easier to believe in a government conspiracy than the fact that our entire way of life can be disrupted by the random mutation of a microorganism.

If climate change is just a natural event caused by the sun or whatever, then there's nothing we can do and no point worrying about it. We don't have to take responsibility for our actions, deal with the guilt of having wrecked the climate and radically change our way of life to avert total disaster.

Finally got round to entering the world of indoor mycology again.
Looked like a massive weirdo for getting a 9Kg bale of straw delivered to my office but hopefully it'll be worth it.

Starting off small with some elm mushrooms, not tried them before but they're meant to be similarly easy to grow to oysters.
On a whim I also got some oyster mushroom wood dowels and stuck them in some firewood I had lying around, not sure if it'll take but worth a shot I guess.

God, Sarah Millican is gorgeous but her reliance on toilet humour is a real turn off. I'd still eat her arse, though, no guilt about it.

I've finally got around to trying the No Chick Strips from Iceland's vegan range. A lot of brands that try to replicate the texture of chicken with layers of layers of hydrated soya protein fuck it horribly by making it too chewy or too watery but these were spot on. In fact, they might be the best veggie chicken I've tried but they should be at that price.

No Bull and No Porkies are reasonably witty. I would've gone with No Clucks Given for the chicken, though.

I can't do squats due to a bad knee so what can I do instead?

At the moment I'm doing deadlifts and step-ups on a 12" high block. Both for high reps.

I just think he has a very limited vision of what fiction encompasses. If I wrote an autobiography and I made a load of stuff up it would be a work of fiction but it wouldn't be any more or less believable than if I wrote the truth.

Likewise if I wrote about an imaginary fight that happened in my local pub last December it would also be a work of fiction, but it'd be entirely believable because there are often fights in my local.

Not all fiction fits within the format of the novel.

> Not all fiction fits within the format of the novel.

While I'm here I might as well go full on robot moon oven and point out that not all novels are written in the first person, and that not all third person accounts are fictional.

Let's imagine that I follow you around for the day and write down everything you do, all the conversations you have, while chatting with you all the while about what you think about the things that are happening to you.

Upon reading, given the criteria of >>5137, this account is going to be quite utterly unrealistic. The focus will be on a single person, all the other characters will seem empty and not have their motivations explained, all the minor characters will only ever be seen talking to the main character or, perhaps, friends of his and the only real motivation explained will be that of the main character (as only his thoughts are revealed to the author.

Really all of this is a function of narrative, not of fiction.

Sure the point was to spell it out for people, and to do that you need examples people will understand and by definition those are simplistic and obvious.

If you record all of it, isn't going to be unrealistic at all, but it will probably be a dull meandering mess though because real life regularly is.

As soon as you start editing it down and picking parts to weave a story though you are creating a fiction. You can call that a narrative instead if you like that is just semantics.

Even if you never add anything new, it is a fiction, because you have inserted an intent.

So by your definition all (auto)biographies and memoirs are works of fiction? The idea indeed may have some merit, just interested if that's exactly what you mean.

> For a given value of believable, believability is just about how deeply you are willing to dig. If you are willing to go to the really anal layers the details at some point will be wrong

I think you're right about this. The thing about most fiction is that it's designed to be entertaining. The dull day to day that most of us experience isn't exactly exciting or entertaining so things have to be tweaked or changed to make it so.

To take an example that I know a lot about, it's always fairly obvious to me how utterly fake all computer hacking/security stuff on TV and in films is; exactly because I know what computer hacking really looks like (someone in their underwear staring at a laptop for weeks at a time, for up to 96 hours at a go, swearing a lot, drinking metric shit tons of coffee or booze, smoking a ton of fags, potentially ingesting other drugs, until eventually he somehow figures it out) and it isn't entertaining at all.

That is exactly what I mean. It might be based on a true story, but it is always 'sexed up' in some way, boring bits are cut out, it is focused in to a story. It is at that point to me a work of fiction.

Quite and she's not even a looker by the highest Brazilian standards, she's only really a contender in the north east of the country where most girls look like Gwart off Silicon Valley. If you head down to Sao Paulo or Santa Catarina there are some birds who legitimately look like models and have cocks like one of those pint cans of Stella with an apple on top.

I honestly can't stand it any more.

The internet is breaking my faith in the human species and I need a break from it. Doesn't matter where you go. Chan boards? Infested with alt-right mouthbreathers. Reddit? The opposite brand of people with mind-worms so powerful they think the holodomor was a good thing. Video game sites? Corporate shills and pay-pig knuckle draggers. Obscure nerd hobby forum? Autism so powerful you can't even risk making a joke. Twitter? Let's not even go there, honestly.

Talking to randoms online has always felt like a beneficial exposure to differing ideas and opinions, but nowadays I'm starting to feel like participating in anything resembling the typical modern social media culture simply isn't good for me. Maybe I'm getting old, maybe everyone is just a dickhead, maybe I'm just a dickhead; but I used to be one of the people with ideals and some hope to change the world for the better. Ten years on, the kids have decided what I believe in is outdated, and that I'm pretty much the reincarnation of Hitler for every questioning the new orthodoxies of thought.

I'll be the first to admit I don't exactly have a busy social life in the real world. I'm working on changing that, but there are times I'm not feeling up to it, so I rely on the internet as a crutch. It's those times where I feel incredibly isolated without it, but exposing myself to the widespread toxicity of the internet at large any more is almost certainly unhealthy by this point.

What can I do?

As someone that's been on a certain imageboard on-and-off for what'll be ten years in 2020, I know how you feel, m8. I hate these people about as much as those redditors you mentioned. I just saw that this meme (a meme that was part of the reason I really grew sick of the place) is apparently now so ubiquitous that it's trended on knowyourmeme:

https://knowyourmeme.com/memes/the-eternal-anglo

Maybe I'm also just getting older, but the lack of any kind of civility online is just tiring to me, now. The internet has rarely ever been civil, but *at least* I knew there was an element of freedom of expression, as older people still didn't quite understand what kids did. Now we're not even gonna have that. All the places I've browsed for years are full and under a corporate thumb that once wasn't there, and if they are there, the place quickly becomes full of childish ideologues and oh-so hilarious memers.

What I will say is that I agree very much with this lad >>29030. I'm very lucky that I have a friend who thinks similarly to me, but he's admittedly also a lot more socially mature, less anxious. He thinks many of the things I think, but he's also just a kind, grounded person. He was once a lot more addicted to chans and the internet, but he hasn't been for years, now. He focuses on the outside world, and he just seems happier for it. Thinking of him keeps me remembering that the world outside, at least as it currently is, doesn't really give a shit about most of us, and that those that concern themselves with the internet too much are the ones ultimately doing themselves harm. They think they're so smart, so learned, so funny, but they're rarely making the difference that they think they are.

I guess to just summarise: The world does keep turning. And unless we hear nuclear sirens going off or you see tanks rolling down your street; then you've got the rest of your life to go out and enjoy it. I'd recommend getting the money together to visit national parks, forests, museums, etc. Don't mind the weather, just give it a go. It'll at least remind you that you're alive.

In the space of fifteen years, online discourse has gone from isolated communities astonished to discover how many different points of view there are around the world, to becoming a hyperpartisan, hyperpolitical clusterfuck.

I don't post much any more, because I can tell that taking sense isn't doing any good. And that's, reassuringly, why arguing on the internet has got worse- because millions of us have attained enlightenment and bugged out of it. There are lots of us out there but we don't realise it because we've stopped communicating our presence.

I think a lot of us have used the internet to cathartically purge ourselves of a lot of the ugliness we see in others and have gone on to start families and have careers and such.

Meaningful conversation with the good guys tends to be brief. The good guys don't argue. They politely inform one another of facts, briefly research to confirm veracity, and thank each other for shoring up one another's ignorance. Conversation with the bad guys is a Sisyphean exercise in masochism, where they learn nothing and the only lesson you can learn is to not bother. So their rambling bleats tend to dominate message boards and such like.

Try getting pen pals. I had one for a while a few years back where we solely communicated via email and I found it rather cathartic. A nice break from everything else online where you're generally getting instant responses and quickly disposable stimulation; you can properly reflect and think about what you're trying to say.
