Lads, I've just had a letter from the taxman saying I'm due a refund of just over £50. How should I blow this money? It's money I didn't know I had and I don't need it for anything in particular so I'm happy to squander it.

/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.

The difference here is that these people know my political leanings, and know that I wouldn't seriously mean it. They are just so eager to get that one up, to be 100% holier-than-thou.

Either way, this is just one aspect of the group - there are ridiculous double standards at play, absolutely childish cliques within it, and generally thinking about it I've been meeting up with them semi-regularly but I can't think of a time I actually enjoyed it that much. Primarily, it was the relief of getting out of the house. I'm no longer on the same wavelength as these people in many respects - whilst I used to, I no longer enjoy the same music they do, I don't play the same games, most of them tend to be hypersexual, and spend hours and hours talking about relationships whilst I'm a permavirgin. As I say, outside of larger group settings I don't really exist to many of them.

Yesterday's events were mainly a catalyst to get me think about the unhealthiness of the whole thing, but also feeling trapped that realistically I can't ditch it unless I want to spend at least the next few months without seeing someone face-to-face.

The disadvantage for most that they do very little meaningful effect for their money. Anything it is removing was quite harmless and nominal anyway. Unless you are in a hard water area and you have a softener fitted (which is best done further back to protect things like the boiler washing machine ect) but then you wouldn't need a different tap.

Unless of course you are going down the path of sticking a full reverse osmosis unit under your sink. Which is a much more expensive bit of kit but would remove nearly all dissolved material in the water, and put it at a level of purity that you could theoretically wash things to spotless in it without any detergent because of its abrasive properties by letting it just soak in it. (It is what they use for those window cleaning pole systems). It is safe to drink but I can't say I've ever seen much point in the difference.

Tony's Chocolonely is starting to make its way over here at long last. It's Dutch but privately owned, fair trade, and actually properly manufactured. Their dark milk bars easily trump the reformulated Cadbury's Dairy Milk while being more toothsome and less wanky than Lindt.

In my early 20s I had to go on a course of antibiotics which seemed to coincide with IBS starting up. I've held the suspicion that the two might've been related in the sense that the antibiotics will have effected my gut biome. I got fluffy as well but that's more to do with being a greedy bastard.

Anyway, last week I had to start on a course of antibiotics again but this time the pharmacist managed to up-sell me some gut-bacteria pills to take with it. Do you think it was a silly purchase or do these things actually work? The science part of this thread is I will be able to tell you soon if they've worked.

Not the OP, but I have - the whole thing is fascinating to me. I think it might actually validate some of the ideas/hypothesis around the gut biome - not saying "probiotics" are anything other than snake oil, but there is clearly something in the science we have yet to discover. Also, some of the work that people are doing behind gut biome and depression/mood - very interesting. But still a bit gross. Maybe there is something in that ice docking business?

As I'm sure you've all been gripped with suspense regarding my bowel movements: I can report that things are running much better. That's nothing scientific but I've even been shagging my guts out this week by going back on huel with coffee with the side effects being much milder (just a bit of bloat).

I'd recommend it. Maybe I'll get some different types so there's an ongoing cycle of different bacteria and I'll see how it changes things.

My other half has squeezed all of the washing up liquid into a Kilner bottle.

Lads, I don't get it. I really don't get it. I mean, I gave up trying to understand women a long time ago but every now and then something happens that leaves me utterly flummoxed beyond all comprehension. Is 'WITH NOTHING TO SAY BECAUSE I AM A CUNT' still wordfiltered? I mean, she's moved it from one bottle... to another bottle. It doesn't even pour that well so you always end up using more than you intended to. I doubt anyone in the entire history of humankind has ever thought "washing up liquid in a glass bottle, nice." It's bright yellow and she also pours the cooking oil into a Kilner bottle, which she doesn't store too far away from it, so I can almost certainly guarantee at some point in the future she'll end up frying food in washing up liquid. The lid is also a faff. Just... why? Why, lads?

Can you lads please reassure me that your lasses do stupid shit like this?

>I couldn't be like that with someone, or "baby" them like some of my mates have had to.

I'm still sensing that you got a bit of a bad view on relationships in general from that. It's one thing to say you want your romantic relationships to be different from the way your parents treated each other. And that's fine. But something about that seems to make you think it's better not to have a relationship at all. Because you're not saying what you would do instead, just that that's not a good example for you.

Bit of a reach here, just my general impression I get from you reading your posts, lad.

Maybe the key really is to stop thinking what you don't want your relationships to be like, and start replacing that with positive thoughts and ideas about what you would want out of an actual relationship and an actual partner.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: The kind of Man who gets into those situations of petty grievances and and subconscious power struggles with a woman only does so because he has no respect for himself. He finds it tolerable to put up with that kind of woman because he doesn't think he can do better. He internalises a deeply negative perception of women in general simply because he's never had the spine, the courage, or the testicular fortitude to go after one whom he can see as an equal.

I've had my fair share of negative experiences with women, of course I have. And I feel a lot of sympathy for the kind of lad who's probably going to struggle right now to attract a decent partner when it's such a buyer's market for birds on the dating apps and such. It's high time women realise how easy they've got it in that regard. But nevertheless, there are good women out there. You just have to be a solid enough example of an actual man to attract them. The first thing to accept is that you must work on yourself, before you can attain the kind of woman who is worthy of respect.

I cannot respect the kind of man who is too weak and servile to take ownership of himself like that. The kind who gets stuck in those loveless, joyless relationship instead of growing some balls and dumping her. He cannot respect himself.

I think it's more that some people just let the world have its way with them because they very generally never learned to stick up for themselves. For most of those people, it's not going to be limited to what goes on in a romantic relationships with a (female) partner. Being with a bossy wife or girlfriend and being afraid to do something about it is one thing, but you'll very likely fare the same in other areas of your life as well, e.g. at work or with certain friends who keep taking advantage of your friendship.


>when it's such a buyer's market for birds on the dating apps and such

True to some extent, but women still compete against each other for the biggest catches of the pond. Meaning it's also a question of what you bring to the table. If you've got a weak personality and there is nothing exciting or special about you, then yes, you will be overlooked by many women, especially on dating apps. But dating apps, most of which are really just hookup apps, are still only one of many ways of meeting somebody. And you are not going to find out during the five seconds that you look at somebody's Tinder profile if they're really a good match for you. Loads of couples still meet the old fashioned way, i.e. at work, through their friends, or by pursuing a hobby or special interest with others. Why put yourself under the pressure of sticking out against thousands of other lads, and having barely five seconds to do so before a lass moves on to the next profile on her phone. If a market doesn't play out in your favour, go to a different market and advertise yourself there, is what I am saying.

It's been kicking off in America (again) after the police have shot a black man (again). A couple of protesters/rioters have been killed after they were driven by the police towards an alt-right militia, with this planned in advance.

Anyone who has the talent and drive to become an MP could earn more money, do more good in the world and get a lot less shit in a different job.

There are plenty of jobs where you can stick your snout in the trough without any real risk of being humiliated on Newsnight. Amoral bastards can make a lot more money with a lot less grief in the arms trade or the marketing department of a tobacco company or the shadier end of the financial services industry, but that doesn't offer the ego hit of politics.

I used to be in a local Facebook group, Mirfield Matters, and one of the town councillors was a right little brat on there, frequently acting like a petulant child even though he must have been pushing 40. I'm fairly certain he got the role through his mum, who used to be the mayor, and I believe she encouraged him to stand down because he was embarrassing her. The group was changed to private from public because people in the nearby Dewsbury group kept sharing posts taking the piss out of him for doing things like boasting about how he called the police about ungritted roads.

I think they just didn't let her in because she is too attractive rather than under-dressed.

>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.

The obvious suffix for gender-neutral Spanish (and I presume Portugeuse, which I am less familiar with) is -e. Why @? That's ridiculous.

>maybe we just take people at face value (no pun intended) when they say they're an ethnic minority

Most people would. It's not a black vs. white issue as they try to frame it; it's more to do with the nebulous concept of "wokeness" and there being so much hubris surrounding it. This is a prime example of how much of a liberty you can take with it and how far you can bullshit until someone actually calls you out on it.

In Portuguese you would normally write e.g. Latino(a) or medico(a) instead of Latino/Latina, medico/medica etc. As the @ symbol looks a bit like an 'a' inside of an 'o' it's becoming fairly common (in informal usage, amongst younger people) to use it instead of the o(a) notation: Thus medico(a) becomes simply medic@.

/poof/6276 Going abroad for cosmetic surgery
I've been thinking about going to Prague to get some facial surgery for about 1/3 of the price in the uk. The surgeons are highly trained and have good reviews but still... is it a good idea?

Depends on how risky the surgery is I guess. I did similar for some expensive dentistry many years ago, but I knew the country where I was going, very well indeed. ie if it went wrong and I needed local help or treatment, I knew I could get it and it was pretty easy for me to evaluate the dentist offering it. It was half the price of doing it in the UK and I don't regret it at all - how well do you know Prague?

ITT: Workplace annoyances.

I'll get the ball rolling - having to bring in pastries on your birthday. I know it's cheaper if people bring their own in on their birthday instead of chipping in every time someone in the office has a birthday, but it's still fucking annoying having to fork out on your birthday.

a) They're probably not paying the IT guys any overtime and b) it's easier to test upgrades and find out that it hasn't worked, when everyone is in the office.

The company I worked for before used the exact same systems and all IT updates were done out of hours without a hitch. By my reckoning the upgrades this morning will have cost at least 150 man hours in lost work.

I'm tempted to "forget" to add my organisation's stipulated email footer, just because I work on a shared inbox, and people tend to type my name from the footer in the To: field instead of hitting reply and maintaining the email chain. Then they get all pissy when I don't reply to them within a minute because the important stuff should go to the shared inbox, which is prioritised accordingly. They seem to be under the impression that doing it the other way is some sort of shortcut to a blue chip personal service. What I actually do is snarl and ignore it until I've cleared my quota.

Side rant: I understand that Learning & Development is subset of HR in most organisations, but where I work it's important enough to be a separate department. This distinction is made clear wherever possible - on the intranet, the shared inbox email address, and every time I answer the phone - so how the fuck do I keep getting queries about Payroll, Temporary Staffing, Hierarchy changes and even IT helpdesk requests?

Your shoes you are regularly wearing are probably more padded than they were before. It is more socially acceptable to just wear trainers for everything than it ever has been. When I think about the hard shoes and itchy clothes of my youth it seems like something out of the post war years now.

Looks like blame-shifting for the handling of COVID-19. Political reasons aside, I'd love to know what's actually happening here.

I recall at least one of you being an NHSlad, though I can't remember what area. Does anyone have any further information on this or insider knowledge of what's going on?

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.

Morning, lads.

I enjoy making my own sauces (mainly curry or for pasta) but I want to step it up a notch. Yesterday I made a delicious cashew nut, Quorn chunk, sweet potato and pea curry in an onion, spring onion, ginger, garlic, chilli pepper, bell pepper, cashew nut, turmeric, cumin, cinnamon, paprika, nutmeg, honey and plum tomato sauce but I want to add more flavour for a bit more of a kick without making it too hot (I'm mainly cooking for a mild/medium vegetarian audience).

I'd say it's better than stir-in sauces and a lot of the takeaways around here (although that's because they're bland and shite) but I want to be able to produce something on par with a nice restaurant. I don't know if I need to up the grease/unhealthiness or what. Obviously I need to widen the range of ingredients I use, so I'd be grateful for any tips and pointers.

We'll have built the .GS nursing home by then - your families will drop you off one day and you'll all actually come and live with me.

Also, I love this Indonesian tribe/culture where once a year they dig up their dead relatives - I can see that being a thing at the home.
