Today I got a job offer that involves commuting to that London, Hounslow to be precise. It's a job so I can't turn it down but I've personally never had much to do with the city so I'm left horribly confused and would greatly appreciate some insider knowledge if you lads can spare any.

The thing is:
1. Where I'm living now I would get to work in 2.45hrs every morning. Is that good by London commuter standards? I'm thinking that can't be right but looking online I've seen people selling it as 'ideally situated'.

2. I don't have much keeping me where I live now so I could move closer but websites like commutefrom don't make any goddamn sense. Do you have any recommendations for spots I could look at renting somewhere? I've happily done long commutes before using public transport and I'm a big boring lad so the only real consideration I need is somewhere that is not an utter shithole that will depress me.

I've gone through the catalogue and found nothing that exactly deals with this issue but I'm certain I read one years back.

I was a property guardian in B'ham, the first months were fine, then I ended up with some shitty flatmates and some horrible mold and dampness problems. The company did not give a fuck, the building was due to be sold some months later (it was). I also had a lot of problems in getting the council to take away the trash, I had trash rotting in front of the building for weeks. Cheap, but rather shitty living conditions.

I've had good experiences with Global Guardians, they seem to be better at maintenance than some normal rental companies I've been with. The advantage with your typical guardianship is you can fuck off with 30 days notice if it's shit, though I appreciate that's not an ideal solution.

Admittedly even if you do get a good place, it's not for everyone, it's never going to really feel like a home. I'm quite into living in odd spaces, so it suited me fine, but there's plenty of people who think I'm mental when I tell them my ideal living space would be a warehouse or former mechanic's garage.

Well, lucky you. The company that arranged my property guardianship was a real pain in the arse, they skimped on everything, they ignored issues with antisocial behavior and drug use by the guardians, and I had to fight to get my deposit back. I guess that working for them would be a nightmare since they had a very high turnover rate. I never spoke with the same person twice.

As with any periodic tenancy, then. In my experience landlords/letting agents are happy to let a fixed term tenancy lapse into a periodic tenancy after one or two terms. In fact I think I've just ignored the renewal letters so they get the message I won't be paying their pointless fee.

Sure, but try getting a periodic tenancy right off the bat in London today in a traditional rental agreement, which is what the bloke in question would need.

/A/8106 Modafinil
Any thoughts? I started taking it one month ago, I am suffering from serious health problems and I noticed a cognitive decline. Books, movies or games that were simple and enjoyable a couple of years ago have become way too complex and heavy. I was wasting up my life with aimless shitposting and clickbait videos.

I do not have the resources to perform a double blind test, but I am sure that my mental performance improved a lot. The few people that I am still in contact with agreed, and I was able to finish all my assignment quickly.

Any thoughts? I had no side effects, and it is just one pound at day on an "online pharmacy".

I dabbled with modafinil at Uni.

The first time I used it I was able to make a lot of progress on an essay all through the night, and it was one of my highest scoring essays too. Modafinil can give a push to really get into the research, reading and writing needed for academic work.

However, this was not always the case. There were times where I would take modafinil and just get distracted doing other tasks and I'm fairly certain one my worst essay was also written on modafinil too.

SocialialIy I became more irritable on it, with less patience for others. This meant that seminars were no fun at all on it.

It would always destroy my sleeping pattern (even if I only took half a tablet) and my god, walking home from the uni library after been awake all night and 'coming down' off that stuff damn near gave me panic attacks. I could not handle hearing or seeing other people, I was incredibly anxious and scared, and I believe downers were needed to calm me down when I got home (this was when you could still get etizolam legally).

I must have finished what I had by my third year, and then just stuck to red bulls, coffee and ciggies, if I needed stimulation to help me cram. I felt all the better for not taking modafinil and still got pretty similar marks on my essays. There's not many drugs I'd be happy to never do again, but modafinil is one of them.

I've used it regularly (and still do semi regularly) as either modafinil or armodafinil. I'm slightly happer with the latter.

For me, it works like a strong coffee that lasts 8-12 hours without any chance of the jitters. It's no wonder drug and it does not make me more "intelligent" or "smarter". What it does do is allow me to concentrate for longer and be less susceptible to distraction with one major caveat: I need to be motivated to work on the right thing in the first place. It's just as good at sustaining a pointless wiki deep dive on Burmese basket weaving as it is to get work done.

I take 100mg Modafinil or 75mg Armodafinil first thing in the morning and had no trouble sleeping using this approach.

The only downside I've noticed is mild bruxism during the day.

I suffer from narcolepsy. Modafinil is what the doctors have prescribed to treat it.

I take 300g a day, every day, just to live like a normal human being. A nap doesn't go a miss. Nine hours sleep a night a must, too.

I don't recommend playing with it. It has bad effects on the heart and can lead to depression. If you don't need it, don't use it.

As most have said, the Xbox controller is a great way to go, there's native support in most games and it works well on Windows for obvious reasons.

That being said I'm sure a PlayStation controller works too. What I'm trying to say is go for one of the controllers that a company spend millions designing and developing as the sole control input for their console, instead of a MadCatz abomination.

PS4 controllers are actually quite lovely, but I got mine for naff all so that's obviously a factor, and of course you need a bit of third party software to trick games into thinking it's an Xbox one. However, in terms of the hardware itself, I'd say it's the tops.

The D-pad really can be an issue. It works fine movement controls even if it feels a little spongy, but some games initially designed for Sony consoles, RPGs in particular, use the D-pad like an extra set of four buttons instead. This works reasonably ok since they are physically separated making it easy to hit one direction only. Trying to do the same with an XBox controller, on the other hand, can be pretty torturous if fast and precise actions need to be done using that control scheme.

If the d-pad is a concern then a 360 controller is a bad choice. Solid otherwise, though, and should be pretty cheap.

If you play platform games or other games that use the d-pad extensively then a PS4 DualShock 4 or an Xbox One controller are the clear winners, IMO. Their d-pads are tighter than any of the classic controllers were even back when they were new, and even if you've got an old PS2/Saturn/SNES pad knocking around, chances are it's a bit knackered.

The Xbox One controller hooks into Windows using xinput, which is the de facto standard for pad support in PC games, the DS4 used to require fiddly third-party software to emulate this though Steam apparently now does a good job of supporting it natively. DS4s come with a rechargeable battery inside, but the battery life is pretty feeble.

The Steam controller is an interesting design and I don't regret buying one, but I found that it landed in a no man's land between a pointing device and a gamepad, while not being especially competent at either. I've mostly used it for turn-based games where its accuracy isn't such an issue.

Mother, 46, left paralysed after being 'catapulted' from super-king sized bed during sex with her partner battles for £1m compensation because the divan was an inch-and-a-half lower on one side

A mother-of-four who was left paralysed after falling from a super-king size bed during sex has launched a legal battle for £1million compensation.

Claire Busby, 46, suffered catastrophic spinal injuries when she fell backwards from her recently delivered double-divan in August 2013. Successful business woman Mrs Busby from Maidenhead said she was in bed naked with her then partner when the bizarre tragedy unfolded.

Mrs Busby, who was left tetraplegic and appeared in court in a wheelchair, claims the bed was missing two vital 'glider' feet when delivered, which created a 4cm difference in the height from one side to another. Mrs Busby, who ran a chain of hairdressing and beauty salons is suing Berkshire Bed Company Ltd - trading as Beds Are Uzzz - claiming the bed was 'defective'.

The salon owner said she was 'performing a sexual act' when she toppled over. 'I was positioned kneeling over him,' she explained, to Judge Barry Cotter QC. 'I was kneeling over him and my right hand was touching him, maybe my left hand was touching his leg. I was half way down the bed.'

The claimant said the 'missing gliders' caused a 'slope from head to foot' which caused her to lose balance as she changed position and she 'catapulted' to the floor. At the time she was attempting to 'swing her legs towards the top of the bed', she told the High Court. 'I span around and put my hand down and then I felt as if I was catapulted off the back of the bed,' she said. 'My head hit the floor and I fell to the side and heard a spring in my body snap.'

Her QC, Winston Hunter, said two missing 'gliders' created a hazardous height difference between the bottom end of the left and right divans. 'At its maximum this difference would be 40mm,' he told the judge. This had the effect of creating 'an enhanced, albeit localised, slope at the edge of the mattress', the barrister argued.

Explaining the dynamics of the accident, he went on: 'She had been performing a sex act and, thereafter, she sat up with the intention of swinging her legs forward underneath her - and lying on her back with feet towards the headboard and her head towards the end of the bed. 'Her case is that, having taken the weight off her body through her buttocks, she lay back with the expectation that the mattress would support the weight of her upper torso and her head and shoulders. However, as she placed her weight through her upper body onto the mattress it failed to support her weight, and she continued moving backwards and downwards. The effect of this movement was that her head and upper torso came off the edge of the bed, and she slid to the floor with the weight of her body and legs rotating into a vertical position and forcing the weight of the same through her neck.'

After playing "Pandemic: Legacy" to find out what all the fuss was about and having a really good time with it our little group has mostly been playing cooperative games. So far, we've probably sunk the most hours into "Eldritch Horror" (which made Arkham Horror tempting only until we heard it was even more fiddly). It does a pretty good job of keeping everyone involved: each player's turn is less one person making decisions while the others watch and more of a group effort to decide how the team can best achieve the shared goals and divide up tasks. Just beware: the box says "1-8 players", but that is a big fat lie. Unless you literally have all day or play with machine like efficiency any more than 5 isn't really playable.

/news/16417 Girl Scouts sue Boy Scouts over planned name change

The Girl Scouts of the United States of America have filed a lawsuit against the Boy Scouts of America for dropping "boy" from the scout group's name.

The Boy Scouts of America announced in May they would rename the Boy Scouts programme Scouts BSA as they prepare to allow girls as members.

But the Girl Scouts say the change could erode their brand, calling the move "uniquely damaging" to them.

Their lawsuit seeks damages and an injunction against trademark breaches.

"Only GSUSA has the right to use the Girl Scouts and Scouts trademarks with leadership development services for girls," papers filed in a Manhattan federal court said.

The switch could "marginalise" the Girl Scouts, the complaint reads. It reportedly says the switch has already caused confusion, with some believing their organisation had merged with the Boy Scouts.

Work it out in terms of cycles. You're going to want to run half a gram a week or 250mg e3d. Your cycle will be twelve weeks long, so you're looking at 2ml / week x 12 weeks = 24ml or roughly three bottles of gear. Don't forget your PCT.

I am trying to refer myself to nhs psychological services but I am scared of mentioning that I have had suicidal thoughts because I will get my driving license taken away and my car is my only connection to the outside world.

That's not at all accurate. Mental Health services are under tremendoes strain in the UK, but adult psychology save lives. I was told, in no uncertain terms, that if I missed an appointment without giving the appropriate notice I would be discharged so I didn't miss any appointments. They bent over backwards to help me, for which I'll forever be grateful.

Also, psychologists don't prescribe medication. Psychiatrists do, and they are very much only concerned with the clinical side of psychology, the treatment of symptoms, etc. Psychology is the cure.

Those two statements are entirely opposite to each other.

Mental health payments will miss appointments all the time for reasons ranging from the effects of medication, to staying in bed depressed and miserable, to flat-out self destructive cut off your nose to spite your faced-ness.

Basically they just wanted as many money saving reasons to kick you out of treatment as possible.

It's why I always recommend going private if at all possible for anything psychological or psychiatric. Private doctors don't tend to kick people who are paying them close to a thousand snaps a month out of therapy for missing a few appointments; in fact they'll do a home visit and charge you double for sticking a needle in you if need be.

That's what I call service.

>had crisis team workers tell me that my suicidal thoughts can be abated by having a nice bath.

Welcome to the nice hot bath and a cup of tea club. The transformative power of hot liquid is a running joke amongst the chronically mentally ill. In fairness to the crisis team, they're barely trained and have ridiculous workloads.


The problem is politicians, not healthcare professionals. IME the vast majority of people in the NHS are trying their best, but they just don't have the money to offer a reasonable level of care. The NHS as a whole is underfunded relative to the increases in demand. Mental health represents 23% of the overall burden of disease, but receives just 10% of the NHS budget.

It's still very much a postcode lottery; the quality of care you'll receive is directly proportional to the budget deficit of your local NHS trust. It's a shit situation, but it's the situation we're in.

I'm definitely not slagging off the hardworking people at the NHS, but as my granny used to say "you can't make a silk purse out of a pig's ear", and you can't get decent medical care out of an underfunded system which seems to be set up more and more as a money making system for private government contractors (probably all departments are like this, but I only have insider and outsider experience with the NHS so I feel on better ground slagging off the way the "trusts" are run).

This is the irredeemable arsehole of an ex-wife who has got the cheek to claim my best mate, best man at my wedding and hardest working man I know, is a bad parent and forced him through the courts to see his own kids by lying about him to social work about how they split up.

She'll still keep custody, despite this, unless she gets the jail. How likely do you think it is that this could warrant a custodial sentence?

Mr Danczuk described the warning that came after a vote in the House of Commons on Monday night when a senior Conservative MP “stepped out of the shadows” to confront him.

He said: “I’d never spoken to him before my life but he blocked my way and ushered me to one side.

“He warned me to think very carefully about what I was going to say the next day before the Home Affairs Select Committee when I’d be answering questions on child abuse.

“’I hear you’re about to challenge Lord Brittan about when he knew about child sex abuse,’ he said. ‘It wouldn’t be a wise move', he advised me. 'It was all put to bed a long time ago.’ He warned me I could even be responsible for his death.

“We looked at each other in silence for a second. I knew straight away he wasn’t telling me this out of concern or the man’s welfare. There was no compassion in his voice.

Writing in the Mail on Sunday, he added: “As politicians made their way out of Westminster, I had no doubt that other conversations like this were taking place.

“Indeed this was confirmed when I spoke to other members of the Select Committee the next day. They’d been paid similar visits. Phone calls had been made.”

He first went very quiet in the run up to his court case, which got thrown out. I seem to remember him saying his solicitor told him to shut up and thought maybe Brian continued seeing that as good advice thereafter.

Why do a lot of people seem to rave about Nando's?

My friends think I'm a freak because I very rarely eat Subway or Nando's; as far I can tell it's just, not especially good quality, grilled chicken that has been marinated in peri-peri sauce. Am I missing something here?

I didn't think there was anything wrong with the old ones, the problem wasn't the fries, it was their shite employees not bothering to chuck old stale ones out that had been wilting under the hot lamps for ages. When they're fresh out they're as good as any other.
