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


http://www.examiner.co.uk/news/west-yorkshire-news/huddersfield-charity-shop-finally-says-10780879

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.

I think it depends how much butter you use and how often you take it out to stir.

My girlfriend tends to make scrambled eggs in the microwave and they're nowhere near as nice as doing them on the hob. She also cooks most vegetables in the microwave rather than boiling or steaming them.

>A tormented mum claims she was attacked by a "sexually charged" ghost for two hellish years - before the birth of her daughter banished it for good.

>Charlene Smith, from Harlow, Essex, says she was first awoken by the deviant spirit touching her intimately and initially mistook it for her partner. However, over the coming months the mum-of-six says the spectre continued to attack her, forcing her to desperately turn to ghostbusters, mediums and even a priest to no avail.

They're not really suppliers though. They're just companies set up as a bonkers scheme to create an illusion of competition by having a fuckload of middlemen buying energy off real suppliers and selling it onto consumers. The big suppliers are in no real danger in the short term.

The screen is really the cherry on top of the PSP. That's why I had said PoPoLoCrois was the best complement for the device, its graphics are just high-end pixel art that play towards the size and density of the screen, where a lot of other games at the time were pushing too hard with 3D that the hardware couldn't handle.

Honourable mention for the screen (and browser) being a great way for 17-year-old me to watch porn.

Is it possible for an irrational number raised to the power of an irrational number to be a rational number?

Consider A = (sqrt2) ^ (sqrt2)

If A is rational then we have found an example.

If A is irrational then consider A ^ (sqrt2) = 2

Since 2 is rational we have now found an example.

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

Leonardo Dicaprio just invested in Mosa Meat: https://mosameat.com/blog/leonardo-dicaprio-invests-in-mosa-meat.

As far as I know then the only way to get exposure to this sector is via Jim Mellon's Agronomics fund. It looks expensive -- 15% of any increase in NAV goes straight into Mellon's pocket (and that NAV comes from hard-to-value tiny private companies), but this is a hot area and unless you are a millionaire then you have no alternative.

I put £5k in a few weeks ago after listing to the Mellon interview on the Moneyweek podcast and then reading his "Moos Law". It is up 36% since then but I expect it to be more of a rollercoaster ride that a smooth trip to the moon.

It is far more interesting than my Temple Bar Investment Trust holding, which seems to be suffering from Long COVID - it has still not recovered to its pre March 2020 high.

SkyrimVRLad here. Started playing Oblivion but I'm really starting to lose my patience for it. Even with mods to improve the user experience it feels like it was designed to frustrate the player at every step, combined with the Todd Howard Patented Glitches.

For example, the mouse isn't accelerated in menus, and unlike Fallout 3 which came ~2 years later on the same engine, there's no way to use your keyboard to navigate the menus. I've got a mod which introduces controller support which makes the menus navigable without getting carpal tunnel, but sometimes the menus don't pick up the controller and aiming with it is nigh-on impossible so I have to keep switching between the two.

If you go cave exploring and don't come out after about 0.1 seconds, you get the "your horse has returned to Leyawiiiiin stables" message, so what's the fucking point in having one if you have to fast travel to pick it up every time you get off it? It controls like fucking shit anyway so whatever.

Oblivion is a very marmite game. It hasn't aged well at all, and even if you install enough mods to bring it up to a modern standard it's still a buggy mess. Far more unstable than even something like Stalker, and the process of adding content to it only leaves it less stable. Modding tools like Wrye Bash are arcane wizardry I still don't fully understand and getting it stable is a royal pain in the arse.

But for me it has a similar appeal to Stalker. It has this cozy type of alluring character which may or may not just be nostalgia. I'd like to think not, I played Morrowind when I was a kid and I don't feel as much nostalgia for it, it just feels old to me; with Oblivion I was in my late teens but I still feel strangely fond of it. The environment is picturesque, the music is soothing, the fundamental gaemplay loop is satisfying.

I guess the problem and the strength with Oblivion is that it's the raw, barebones template every subsequent Bethesda game has been built on. If you squint hard enough in Fallout 4 you can still see the skeleton of Oblivion underneath.

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.

/boo/5325 Dowsing
I tried dowsing to find a buried water pipe (and avoid it) this weekend. The rods, they swung really convincingly and repeatedly, for two of us, including eyes shut, all along a line which I then spray painted onto the ground.
So I dug where the pipe wasn't.
Straight through the fucking pipe.
Spent the rest of the weekend digging out a trench in the rain and fixing the pipe.
Tried again with the dowsing rods afterwards, since I now knew exactly where the bastarding pipe was. Same result as before - rods swung and crossed about 2 foot away from the pipe.
What the fuck? I'm the biggest sceptic there is, I sold my soul to satan and he lied to me. Who knew?
The rods were just bent bits of bronze welding rod, hand held. I don't believe any of this shit, so why are the rods swinging? And if it's me doing it subconsciously, how much of a cunt is my subconscious to lie to me after I've spent all day up to my elbows in mud?
What's worse, I need to still dig a hole near the original point, and another along a route the pipe has quite possibly taken. Next weekend is going to be similarly shit, isn't it? I might have to dog these holes by hand instead of using the whirligig on the tractor.
Moan thoroughly ticked, although my fuckwit subconscious is probably unticking it as I type this.

Sorry, i misread your posts. Yeah, that does sound odd. Maybe the elevation of the ground is slightly uneven which causes a hand to dip or twist - i don't know, i'm drawing at straws. Perhaps you could blind test the experiment - call over a friend or two to perform the same actions and see what result they get - be extremely careful in what you tell them before hand - you simply cannot even allude the the answer you're looking for (to be honest a great length of turned over earth will probably be enough to bias their results).

Suggestibility has a lot to do with this sort of thing - are you particularly gulible?

At the end of the day it's the night - you'll just have to study yourself to find an answer. The best way I've found is to consider what answer you want, then go the opposite direction. Though this may be why i'm so confused and doubtful of myself.

Do it 100 times and come back. Dowsing is pseudoscience and I'm genuinely surprised that there are some people here who seem to have taken it at face value. I'm looking forward to the oncoming thread about chiropractic and then we can go talk about flat earth in the weekday thread.

If dowsing really worked, it would be a lot more popular, because it would be a lot more marketable. A multitude of reasons as to why this could be coincidence, bias, or whatnot have been presented.

Of course you could have your cake and eat it by acknowledging that it's bollocks, but say that you enjoy doing it as a reflective experience.

Nope. I want to record, in excruciating detail, the exact moment my monkey brain does this thing. Gaze tracking, SQUIDs clamped to my brain to see what I'm thinking, hands and dowsing rods instrumented better than a post-Challenger shuttle launch.
And you can't stop me. Well, apart from the SQUIDs.

/news/35344 Russia election: Putin's party wins election marred by fraud claims
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-58614227

With almost all of the votes counted, the United Russia party had won nearly 50% of the vote, marking a slight drop in support from the previous election.

Mr Putin's biggest critics were barred from running, and there were reports of ballot stuffing and forced voting.

Russia's electoral commission rejected claims of widespread irregularities.

With more than 99% of votes counted, United Russia's closest rival, the Communist Party, had about 19% of the vote, according to the election commission.

What did all the supporters of banned opposition do? Did they vote for other parties, or boycott the election completely? Because 50% of the vote is either acceptably decent or a guaranteed failure if elections were fair, depending on whether it's 50% of everyone or 50% of just the people who were allowed in.

Putin's own party got 50%, but at least another 30% went to controlled opposition. Turnout was significantly lower than previous elections so the assumption is that the real opposition simply stayed home.

Also, the fraud this time was hilarious. They didn't even bother with the balloons. There are videos of people quite literally stuffing ballot boxes while polling staff just sit there and watch them do it.

Not much point giving them the benefit of doubt.

I'm on my swan flight and I think I'll quit soon. I topped out at £227,000 (paying nearly £88,000 in tax, you can thank me later) even though most of that is in shares. Work has turned into just another bean counter hell hole, and readin gsome recent feedbck other people are apparently on-board with throwing personal responsibility over board and sucking dear corporate leader's cock. I know that makes it sound like I'm the problem, and I probably am, but this cult like hero worship is rubbing me really the wrong way.

I really enjoy painting individual models but despite liking repetition (autism firmly checked) I don't get much out of re-painting the same mini over and over. Practice makes perfect, so some repetition to learn painting techniques is helpful but I could never play 'Nids for example. I should mention that I'm more of a board game person that likes painting minis than a TTG player. Battle Masters, Heroic Quest or Space Hulk for example, though I've dabbled in Infinity and by rule-of-cool bought minis for other games with limited units to paint.

I love the 40k lore, Eisenhorn is my bible, but these days I'd rather learn something new I didn't know about painting than doing more identical units.

New edition of Kill Team just came out and this time it actually seems to be good, not just potentially good but let down by some illogical shit.

I wish Kill Team had already been a thing a year or two earlier, because then I wouldn't have got invested in two massive armies, I'd have just had a team for lots of different factions.

Still the repetition has made me into a good painter I suppose. It's just a shame that it's also made me slightly weary of actually painting.

I caught some of the Emmys last night. Surely nominating The Mandalorian for an award for "outstanding casting" is just trolling?

Priest at criminal’s funeral: The most disturbing liturgy I’ve attended

A parish priest has described the funeral for Dean Maguire, one of the three men killed in a road crash last week, as the ‘most disturbing liturgy I was ever at’.

Chaotic scenes, in which a small number of mourners for Dean Maguire, 29, blocked off roads and intimidated members of the public on the way to St Mary’s Priory church in Tallaght on Friday, have sparked widespread outrage.

Mr Maguire was killed, alongside his friends Graham Taylor, 31, and Carl Freeman, 26, when the car they were travelling in crashed into a truck on the N7. The men, who had over 200 convictions between them and were part of a notorious criminal gang, had been travelling purposely on the wrong side of the road to avoid being captured by gardaí.

During the funeral service for the father-of-two, friends of the ‘career criminal’ placed a torch and screwdriver as remembrance gifts beside his coffin. A professionally printed banner featuring his face on the altar also read: ‘You know the score, get on the floor, don’t be funny, show me the money.’


https://extra.ie/2021/07/20/news/irish-news/dean-maguire-funeral-priest

Mourners who made eulogies said Maguire would not be forgotten. “Sorry for the language, Father – rest in peace, you fucking legend,” said one woman.

A significant decrease in burglaries in most Leinster counties is being attributed by senior gardaí to the deaths of three prolific criminals as well as a number of arrest operations.

The deaths of Tallaght criminals Graham Taylor (31), Karl Freeman (26) and Dean Maguire (29) made international headlines after the car they were travelling in collided head-on with a lorry as it drove the wrong way down the N7 near Rathcoole on the night of July 7. The three criminals who had over 200 previous convictions between them were main players in a gang who used the motorway network to carry out burglaries in rural areas.

Figures obtained by the Herald suggest there has been a major drop in this type of crime over recent weeks in most of the garda divisions where they were most active.

/job/14037 Career guidance after being a reclusive NEET for a few years
I graduated from an Oxbridge uni two years ago with a 2.ii after getting mad depressed and smoking zoots constantly, totally squandering my time there.
Been two years and I'm still zooting away my problems, but I'm now a mid-20s zero-CV NEET and have no idea what to do.

How do I achieve a useful career now that I'm post-uni with no work experience, semi poor grades and getting on a bit compared to the fresh 21y/o grads.

Any ideas? Maybe just some spiritual guidance.

Thanks chaps

It's probably still worth trying the networking thing. Don't ask the people you know, but if you can find someone you don't know but who went to the same...house? College? as you, you can just talk about that during the interview and let them assume you were one of the gang. LinkedIn probably has lots of this information listed.

Teaching is definitely a possbility. With an ever-increasing gap on his CV, OP will struggle to land a private-sector job worthy of his formal education, but all is not lost if he's still in his mid-20s.

In the mean time, I would go on the lookout for any job at all that gets you out of the house every day and gets you at least a few hundred quid a month. Two years is a long time to not be doing much of anything. It's not just two years of non-existing job experience, but possible employers will also be skeptical if you can just hit the ground running and get back into an everyday work routine from one day to the next.

There are jobs that can ease you back into a daily routine. You could do part-time work delivering food, or some low-level customer phone support. You don't have to work in a warehouse or supermarket.

There's a whole world of civil service jobs out there with an application process designed to cut out connections. If I remember right sifters and interviewers don't actually see your job history either because they certainly hired me with a year gap. Apply for HEO and at a push SEO unless you have management experience. Pay is shit but you can get a nice/work life balance in a very secure job that looks good on your CV if you ever want to escape, plus you're not selling rubbish to people all day.

If anything the problem we have is that not enough people apply and of those they seem unable to provide answers to the competencies so posts just go unfilled. I don't think it would be wrong if you asked for advice on competencies if you need it. Saged ticked because I don't know if I should be recruiting arse-pissers.
