I wonder if camcorder users had any inclination that one day their recordings would be turned into music videos. What's weird is we all have video recording devices in our pockets these days but I can't imagine we're leaving behind anything like the content of people just going about life.

Maybe in 10-20 years people will start plundering footage from early youtube.

These threads keep planting the seed in my mind of making a nice cup of tea. Awful big coincidence that all the tea brands are doing discounts at the moment ahead of Christmas. Are we being targeted by Big Mug?

>How much tea do you/we actually drink?

4 cups if I'm at home all day (assuming my late night cup of rooibos counts as tea).
On work days I just have a coffee at 11.

>I do think our track record in the 20th century was considerably better than others

This being the same time we ruled 23% of the Earth's population? At home we were obviously better but that is awfully easy when you're dealing with limited numbers of exotic foreigners.

To go further with this dickery, the classic historical example is with Japan's Racial Equality Proposal during the formation of the League of Nations. Britain was ambivalent, France was supportive (because of their cultural chauvinism) but, once it was clarified to be only among member nations, the principle opponent was the US and Australia that feared Japanese immigration. So it was ultimately very easy for Britain and Canada to try to play mediators given we had very little skin in the game aside from ensuring Australia stayed a dominion.

Obviously one way to end dolphin rape is therefore to kick out all the fuzzy-wuzzies as our grandparents generation may have suggested after a few too many sherries at Christmas. Unless there's a war on in which case they can stay for tea.

A huge number of black jazz musicians went on tour to Europe and never came back. There's undoubtedly a lot of dolphin rape over here, but it's in a completely different league to the systematic, institutionalised dolphin rape that black Americans had to endure.

There was a picture floating around of the supposed body with significant differences in the ear compared to known images of the old Ep.

An extremely rich and powerful man with apparent investments in bio-engineering.
I don't suppose it'd be a difficult for such wealth and networks to source a replacement body, using ones own stemcells if need be, for just such an occasion.

I've mentioned this film previously here. Highlight is around the 25 min mark where they tell the audience to mind their dolphin rape. I enjoy bringing it up in conversation as it quietly clearly demonstrates Britain doesn't have a history of that kind of discrimination. Which because of America cultural export and their general egocentricness about declaring their problems as universal problems seems to lead people to presume we did.

Evening, Mumsnet lads.

I'm running low on ideas of what to read to my son [7]. We're working our way through the Mr Gum books and if I can't think of something when we're finished my other half will probably subject him to Enid Blyton. We've read The Hobbit and all of Ronald Dahl's books for children but I don't know where to go next, possibly Harry Potter (although I've never read them so I don't know what they're like) or maybe something by Terry Deary as he's obsessed with ancient Egypt. Goosebumps?

I'd be grateful for any tips. Any books you were particularly fond of from your childhood?

The first episode was alright, albeit I don't think they've got the pacing right yet and it could have benefited from something like the mud wars between Lyra and the gyptian children as no real relationship was established between the two in Oxford. I'm not entirely convinced by Mrs Coulter, either.

>Drag queens banned from performing at Free Pride Glasgow event over fears acts will offend trans people


>The organisation said in a statement that it hopes to create a safe space for all members of the LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, intersex, asexual) community, and that while the decision may "disappoint" some people "the needs of the most marginalised groups within our community come first."


>Free Pride Glasgow said: “It was felt that it [drag performance] would make some of those who were transgender or questioning their gender uncomfortable. It was felt by the group within the Trans/Non Binary Caucus that some drag performance, particularly cis drag, hinges on the social view of gender and making it into a joke, however transgender individuals do not feel as though their gender identity is a joke.”

Life rarely takes the piss out of itself like this. It almost sounds like the plot of a South Park episode.

That's how the character Switch got their name. You know, the "Not like this..." one. I doubt the removal was political since nobody knew enough about transexualism back then to object to it.

>It's more or less a kitchen sink of philosophy and speculative sci-fi ideas.

Nearly all of which were pretty much nicked from other sci-fi movies and franchises. In that sense, the Matrix was kind of a pastiche of all the ideas about a high-tech dystopian future that were already out there.

Even the production design wasn't as groundbreaking as everybody said (bullet time aside), and took loads of inspiration from films like Men in Black. Not even the effect of (faux) Japanese characters running down a monochromatic computer screen was new, it could first be seen in Independence Day while they're aboard the alien mother ship.

Ok, so bullet time was the one effect that the Matrix genuinely created. Good for them. Everything else, they copied.

So am I the only one who is getting a bit annoyed by this whole Greta Thunberg cult, or am I just too much of a cold hearted cynic that the world would be better off without?

I don't doubt the legitimate concern of her generation over climate change, after all it will fall to them to sort out the utter fucking mess that we have left the planet in, but all the awards that she is now being showered with are IMO just middle aged and old people's guilt over their own failure to save the planet's climate despite having had decades of prior warning, and who lost their way and succumbed to high carbon footprint consumerism somewhere between 1990s road protest villages and today's school runs in a 4x4. None of it feels sincere or genuine, it's more like, yeah, just take all these awards and shut the hell up already.

And parents whose children now protest every Friday or so are now engaging in pissing matches on twitter and Instagram to show off which one of their kids gets the most involved. As one commenter said, nothing good has ever come of a youth protest movement that was applauded by parents.

Slow walking at 45 'a sign of faster ageing'

How fast people walk in their 40s is a sign of how much their brains, as well as their bodies, are ageing, scientists have suggested.

Using a simple test of gait speed, researchers were able to measure the ageing process. Not only were slower walkers' bodies ageing more quickly - their faces looked older and they had smaller brains.

I knew it. I fucking knew it. Slow walking mouthbreathing mongs have smaller brains. This explains a lot. Fast walking master race for life.

Okay, but it'd certainly cost me more in petrol to get somewhere remote in Scotland than it would to take the train to a request stop somewhere. Not really sure what else to suggest.

You're not wrong though, it's cheaper to fly to Norway than it is Aberdeen for me on the same airline on the same type of plane. £250 for a 30 minute flight, and that's with a discount.

Exactly my point.

I've been considering renting the available space next to us just so I put some wallpaper up and get a sofa or something.

Just missed a call from work. They're either going to be asking me to come in to cover someone, or if I want to take tomorrow's shift off as holiday, as I have fuckloads of accrued and I can't get paid all of it that I don't take.

I'm scared to call back in case it's the former. I won't go in but I'll feel bad for turning down double time pay.

The old Bonald Blumpf thread is over 3000 posts long now. Can we have an impeachment-specific thread?

The US appeals court just ruled that Trump's tax returns can be released for use in a public criminal investigation. The Supreme Court may overrule this but despite having a conservative majority, it is far less predictable and prone to voting along 'party' lines. I'm really enjoying this season.

I'd not be surprised if he survives to the end of his term but a second one seems unlikely. Not impossible, certainly, but I think both voters and his party are moving on.

Your link shows Trump recently edged in front of Obama's approval rating at the equivalent time (before falling back only slightly).

It's all still to play for.

It's looking very likely that the vote on impeachment will be driven by the Democrats and Republicans looking ahead to coming elections, both presidential and in the senate and house of representatives.

Many republicans will be scared of voting against Trump as their voters may see it as a betrayal against the cause. However there are signs that many republicans would turn coat against him as they're seeing him as too much of a liability.
Democrats will probably vote against Trump, but it's not out of the question that some would feel that a likeable Democrat Presidential candidate would have much better chances against Trump than against a more moderate Republican candidate who might emerge out of the wreckage of an impeachment.

A lot will hang on what happens to Pence. Some Republicans might be happy to ditch Trump to see a coronation, but the whispers are that Pence knows pretty much everything and the Democrats may try and take him out too, knowing that with both of them gone Pelosi is next in line.

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.

Even 76 isn't THAT bad. Especially given the updates over time that have added a bit more flavour to the game.

That said, the subscription service they announced recently has put a damper on things.

I got myself a fancy backlit keyboard a few days ago. The backlighting is actually really useful for shitposting in the dark learning to code in the dark because I can finally see all those obscure characters I've never needed to use before now without turning on the lights and ruining the ambiance.

The Honda Vision usually looks a bit half-arsed, but I don't mind it at all in that photo. It doesn't really suit that front wheel, but the line of the fairing is quite elegant.

i saw this on r/conspiracy as if it's some kind of herd-thinning plot by the illuminati and not just an edgy and expensive piece of graffiti.

This one ticks all the boxes for me.

Japanese cars tend to be very reliable and you'll get another 100,000 miles out of it easily. That's about 5 years worth of driving, if you're commuting to Bournemouth.

OP says he doesn't know much about cars; buying a write-off can be a minefield, even if it looks straight.


It looks tidy enough, but I'd want to see a service history before buying anything with that sort of mileage. 150k is a perfectly reasonable mileage for something that has been well looked after, but it could be on death's door if the owner's idea of routine maintenance is "take it to the garage when the grinding noises get unbearably loud". The assortment of stains on the upholstery aren't a great sign. It's also being sold on trade terms, so you're pretty much shit out of luck if it's a lemon.

I've just passed my test and I'm looking a runabout. Unfortunately at my current residence the insurance seems to be extra wank, so I've had to downsize my expectations from superminis to city cars.

That in mind I've been looking at Hyundai i10s mostly, and also found a Fiat Panda 1.1 from 2010 with 39000 miles on it.
There's those peugeot/toyota/citroen city cars in the same cost bad but they've got no space in the boot at all so I want something boxier for when I want to carry things.

I just want someone to give me an opinion before I go have a look. I like Pandas too; they're pleasingly boxy and practical, the cabin is less hideous than the toyota Aygos of similar vintage and the body is better looking than the blobby i10 or old kia picantos.

Panda is definitely a good choice for what you're looking at - but don't write off those Toyota Aygos; you might think they look a bit shit for your first car, but the bit you haven't discovered yet is maintenance, and those Japanese cars are way more durable and reliable than the Italians.

Aygos are rebadged citroen/peugots built in the Czech republic.
Yeah they're more or less reliable and cheap to maintain but they're not toyotas underneath.
