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.

The poverty line has stayed the same. The cost of living has increased. Looking at one graph in isolation doesn't prove anything.

I'm not a hand wringing guardian type, I'm the type who fully understands darkies do the stabbing and eat fuckloads of fried chicken. But their problems are cultural as well as political and economic. It does nobody any good to try and blame one thing and one thing alone, because it makes them feel uncomfortable exploring the impact of other factors.

Left wingers don't want to admit black people might need a sitting down and telling how to raise their kids not to be thugs. Right wing people don't want to admit their economic policies are clearly and obviously worsening the situation. Politicians in general don't want to admit they've been steadfastly ignoring any and all opportunity to deal with issues like this at the core of our society for fucking decades.

People like the "one neat trick that solves complex societal problem" rather than the nuanced incremental changes, or at least the media do because it's easier to get their heads around and report on a radical quick fix.

Politicians also love something that can be condensed into a sound bite. At the current time, unsurprisingly, most of the noise is about A Levels and university admissions; Labour want students to apply to university after they have their results because they claim that poorer students are most likely to have their grades predicted too low and will end up accepting an unconditional offer from a 'lesser' university than they would be admitted to based on their actual grades.

This appears to be a good thing but in isolation it is an oversimplification of a wider and more complex issue. We should also be asking why teachers in disadvantaged areas are much more likely to under-predict the grades of their students; the Sutton trust found that they tend to have the greatest misconceptions about Oxbridge and are far less likely to encourage pupils to study there. Are they more jaded and does this rub off into their teaching? Do they have much less belief and optimism for their students? Are they less engaged with their students, perhaps due to larger class sizes and more disruptive children, so they don't actually know them well enough to predict their grades with as much accuracy? If we want to emulate the likes of Finland then it's clear that we need to be almost halving class sizes. We should also be asking whether students from poorer backgrounds are given even support to understand how important where you study actually is and that a degree from the university of Manchester is far more valuable than a degree from Manchester met. We should be asking whether we have too many 'lesser' institutions and if some of these should be converted into polys. We should be asking why so many universities are making unconditional offers in the first place. We should be asking whether too many students are going to university. You get the idea, otherwise you're just papering over the cracks.

/lit/6963 Books by women
It's dawned on me that, other than a novel written by a former work colleague, I haven't read a book written by a woman in over a decade. This hasn't been a conscious decision, it's just that the books I've tended to gravitate towards happen to have been written by men. However I feel I should make a conscious effort to read some, even if it's just to gain a different perspective on things.

Where should I start? Virginia Woolf? Jane Austen? Fleur Jaeggy? Dorothy Parker? Arundhati Roy? Olga Tokarczuk? Stella Gibbons?

I received an email from my letting agency on Friday asking if I would like to renew my rental agreement for another year. I'm happy to do this and having looked around this place is still the best deal for me. My flat is a real gem and I was lucky to stumble across it.

Now, correct me if I'm overthinking this, but there's something on my mind following this sentence:
>If you would like to renew, please confirm to us in writing and we will discuss with your Landlord the terms under which they would also be happy to have you extend.

I'd like to continue paying what I am now because I'm a civil servant and our wages don't exactly follow inflation. The problem is that the flat on the ground-floor is currently advertised at a roughly 7% higher rent than what I'm paying and therefore getting close to my unaffordable mark.

How much groveling should I do in my response to try and get the landlord to agree to another year on the same rent? I've never lived in a place for longer than a year before so forgive the stupid question. I'm a good boy who always pays his rent on time and is never a bother to anyone so it could be justified on top of cutting out the faff.

Fair enough. I'm not even sure if I would want to meet the guy by this point.

Well, this has been a whole thing. My parents never explicitly told me I was the child of a donor, but I figured it out eventually. I am a bit of a spergic cunt with no idea how to act normally, and it was somewhat exaggerated during my teen years; it really shit my dad up that I went ahead and requested the info without consulting him, but I felt like it was my right to know. Family has never been even remotely important to me, but I feel it could be catastrophic in families with a strong bond.

As I said yesterday, you don't have to look that similar to look similar enough.

Genetics is a complex thing, though. I don't really think I look like anyone on my mum's side, but my grandfather died in 1985, and both my grandmother and grandfather's individual parents (I'm not sure how to word this without it sounding like they shared parents; they did not) died when they were young, so there are few, if any pictures of any of my direct male lineage.

Rape victims among those to be asked to hand phones to police

Victims of crimes, including those alleging rape, are to be asked to hand their phones over to police - or risk prosecutions not going ahead.

Consent forms asking for permission to access information including emails, messages and photographs have been rolled out in England and Wales. It comes after a number of rape and serious sexual assault cases collapsed when crucial evidence emerged.

Victim Support said the move could stop victims coming forward. But police and prosecutors say the forms can plug a gap in the law which says complainants and witnesses cannot be forced to disclose relevant content from phones, laptops, tablets or smart watches.

Director of Public Prosecutions Max Hill said such digital information would only be looked at where it forms a "reasonable" line of inquiry, with material going before a court only if it meets stringent rules.

This seems like a worrying turn of events and the unintended consequence of the political pressure to increase the number of rape convictions spearheaded by Alison Saunders.

During my current job and my last job, I've been made to feel like the second choice candidate, despite eventually getting the position.

The first instance, I only heard about them considering another candidate until a couple of months in. They decided on somewhere else shortly after the interview, and I had to re-interview to get in. Tried not to take it personally and all that, it was a big step up for me after all.

This job really took the piss, though. I interviewed for a 100% position, which was eventually split between myself and another person 50%... the other half went to a closely-related family member of one of the interviewers, no less.

They didn't make me interview twice, but the other one ended up taking on the more simple and immediate tasks leaving me in the wind for months about what my job role actually was.

Is there something I'm doing wrong, here? Is it an indication of something? Is it just that hiring is often a process of elimination rather than selection?

Nothing I can see, the first story is just the fact of life these people have no prior relationship with you, I'm sure you are lovely but then I'm sure the other 50+ people who applied are lovely too. That's just life you are as mundane as the rest of us

The second is just bullshit nepotism, the last job I interview for it got into a farce by the end because they didn't want to admit I was the better candidate on paper but they wanted to hire someone else because they were the mate of the guy he'd be closely working with presumably because the likes of their bosses boss would be wholly unamused.

For my career break I came second in a job interview. I later learnt that the admin head only wanted to hire women, something I've mentioned on /job/ before, so I lost out to someone who turned out to be useless but possessed a vagina. However, I impressed other people at the interview so that when someone went off on long-term sick I was hired on a temporary contract, which was eventually made permanent.

I'm now in a managerial position so I'm responsible for recruitment in my department. There's been occasions where there's been a dearth of suitable candidates. There's been other occasions where I've had to choose one from a number of strong candidates when any one of them would have absolutely walked it at on a different occasion, some of whom I've contacted when we've had a vacancy at a later date. You can try your absolute best but you can't control who you are up against. That's life.

There's no guarantee that an employer has a decent hiring process. For some reason the recruitment for the graduate scheme at work is done by the admin head and she is as thick as pig shit, which most likely explains why four out of the last five graduates recruited have turned out to be a mistake.

Do some voluntary work or ask at the Jobcentre about work placements. It'll help build your confidence, get you back into the habit of working and you'll get a reference. It shouldn't affect your benefits.

There are loads of local organisations who offer back-to-work support programmes for the long term unemployed. You could do a bit of Googling, or ask at the Jobcentre or Citizens Advice.

You might want to consider your education options. If you don't have many qualifications, taking a vocational course at your local FE college might be a good route back into work. A recent qualification on your CV shows employers that you're actually motivated to get back into work, rather than just applying for stuff because the Jobcentre told you to.

Self-employment is also an option worth considering. You can get free mentoring, a loan to cover your start-up costs and claim the New Enterprise Allowance for the first six months.

If you're disabled/mentally ill there are a lot of services which give advice to people with these conditions looking for work.

The whole point of work is looking busy rather than actually doing work.

I'm not but it is like staring at a car accident where someone is looking the wrong way walking into traffic.

/e/19768 What are you playing right now?
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.

This again.
These AI cunts seem to be somewhat more intelligent than I would've expected.
They do a lot of daft bot things, like wandering away from a 1hp ez kill stuck in a dead end. And then I didn't really expect having a C-4 package tossed right into my face. Nor did I pay attention to the cannon tower at the bunker side of crossfire. Kaboom, beep-beep-beeeeep.
It's oddly satisfying.

Despite swearing it off about a year ago as an unforgivable time sink I've been dabbling in Hearts of Iron 3 again. I've been building the USA up to enter to the war, which isn't massively involved, so when I was playing last night I drifted off and managed to sleep through most of 1940. I don't think I missed much and I can't be bothered redoing all the pre-war admin so I'm just carrying on regardless.

It's just a WW2 simulation, it's far more military focused, indeed the politics is almost non-existent, there are no populations and playing as a minor nation is basically pointless, rather than being a challange like it is in most Paradox games. I think I've already given up on it though. I was playing with a mod, but it does something I can't stand where it makes the AI harder by just giving them a shite load of artificial buffs and gimping your own progress, I can stand that in some contexts, but not a WW2 game.

It's fun enough, but everything I just mentioned has soured this current playthrough. It's easier enough to torrent the regular game too thanks GOG!, and given that the base game can feel like a beta and the DLC is mandatory I wouldn't pay for it if I had another chance.

We were well into the home studio boom by 2000. We'd had reasonably affordable studio gear for about a decade prior (ADAT decks, Mackie desks, the new wave of Chinese condensers) but Cubase VST came out in 1996, which really marked the beginning of the end. At about the same time, we got the first wave of digital portastudios, which killed the demo studio pretty much overnight - for the price of a week in a cheap studio, you could buy a little box with 8 tracks of digital recording and some basic effects.

I suppose it's essentially a good thing that recording was democratised, but it coincided with a lot of shitty and undemocratic changes in music. John Peel died in 2004, which was a great loss to music and marked the end of an era. Myspace and Napster were supposed to democratise the distribution of music, but the opposite really happened - unless you've got a trust fund, it's very hard to break through the noise and find an audience. A&R men started trusting follower counts more than their own judgement. Development deals died and the majors started expecting new acts to bring their own fan base. Small venues started going pay-to-play, pricing a lot of artists out of the opportunity to build an audience by playing live. The old system was unfair and arbitrary, but at least you had a chance.

Close your eyes and imagine you're floating over a lush, green, friendly grassland on a sunny day, the occasional copse of trees offering inviting shade to rest a while.

I posted ISAN in the other thread just to see what the recommendation would be but it's got me back to what an absolute gem Lucky Cat was. I guess I've gone back to synth now that the weather is turning.

/A/8290 Weed or not?
Found this in my son's laundry today, and before I ask him what it is, I just wanted to make sure. I am not really opposed to smoking weed, but this find is a bit odd...

There is the fainest hint of weed smell. You really have to get close and take a sniff to smell it. The overall smell is that of a freshly cut grass. So I am not too sure as to what it is. I never smoked weed, seen it or handled it, so I wanted to know what you guys thought.

I have been Googling, and it just makes me more worried. I found this other thing called Spice, but it doesn't look like it.

Any ideas? Is it real weed?

Since this image wasn't that well received in The Ginger Thread, and by the recommendation of some lad in /b/: this is the "Guilty Would" thread.

Post women which aren't generically attractive, but which (for whatever reason) you'd shag the heck out of given the chance.
