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

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.

A dog walker from Leeds claims she had a 'completely bizarre' experience after she saw a couple smeared in bird blood having sex in the middle of a group of chanting women.

The woman, who has asked to remain anonymous, says she spotted the couple when she was walking her dog near Hawksworth Wood Trail, in Kirkstall, shortly after midday on Friday, January 11. West Yorkshire Police confirmed officers were called to 'a report of public indecency' in the woods and they have now 'stepped up patrols in the area'.

The dog walker said: "I let the dog off for a run and he went to the top of the wood, near a field where kids play and people walk. He disappeared and I heard what I thought was shouting so I went to get him, as he's a big softy, but I thought he had scared someone. It sounded like someone shouting in a different language, but then I saw a lady in her late 30s laid on a white plastic sheet."

She said she thought the woman 'was dead' at first, but when she went closer to try and find her dog, she saw a man. The man then used his finger to take blood from a dead bird and 'put it on the woman's face' before they had sex, she claimed.

She added: "I dragged the dog away and my friend and I walked away. Then, about 10 minutes later, I walked back that way and my friend said she saw at least five other woman clothed around them (the couple) and we realised they were chanting. We decided to go and ring the police as it seemed odd, because they knew people were there and just carried on. We checked back later, to see if they'd gone and they were dressed in tunics and walking away as if nothing happened and had the sheet folded over their arms. It was completely bizarre."

It might just be an overzealous marketing department trying to justify their existence. The marketing team at my last place of work were an absolute nightmare for things like this (>>6201).

They'd try to dictate what you had to write in your out of office message and they'd spend weeks finalising something like the 'company' shades of red, blue and green to use, which didn't even match up with the actual shades used in the logo. They'd piss away shitloads of money getting someone else to design marketing material for them, with their only real contribution being the piss poor spelling and grammar, and they were also constantly sending out snotty emails saying we had to follow what they'd come up with, like the 'company' font, or the brand would be harmed; that was a particular favourite phrase of theirs.

You just made me remember this, always worth a chuckle. We can't get banned for memes nobody under 20 has ever heard of, right?

Anyway, the comparison to phlogiston is a tad misleading. Phlogiston was considered common knowledge, the only accepted explanation by a consensus of chemists. Dark matter is only one hypothesis for observed behaviours (measurements of which have also faced criticism) and is treated as such. There are certainly other candidates for it, including some reworking of Newtonian physics beyond special relativity. Physicists are not in a position to be authoritative when the theoretical value for the Cosmological constant is still off by over 100 orders of magnitude...

Derby County Football Club can confirm that officers from the Derbyshire Constabulary were called to the Derby County Training Centre at around 11:20am on Thursday 10th January 2019 following reports of a man acting suspiciously outside the premises.

It has since been confirmed to Derby County that the individual concerned is an employee of the footballing staff at Leeds United Football Club. The club is now in discussion with Leeds United club officials in relation to this incident. At this time no further comment will be made.

Having my first drink since November 26th, when I returned from the highlands and made the decision to quit the stuff for a while and become a more outdoorsy kind of person. Unfortunately the nearest place that qualifies as "the outdoors" is around an hour and a half to two hours away and I never really found the motivation to drive that far. My plan was to take a very long break from drinking and then maybe only drink alcohol if I acquired a social life or to gain courage for doing worthwhile solitary stuff like playing at open mic nights or going to gigs (maybe a couple of times a month). Essentially having a semi-legitimate reason to drink instead of drinking at home merely to make the time go by quicker and as a coping mechanism for the racing, anxious thoughts. Drinking again just to remember what it feels like to be drunk, like I'm doing now, wasn't quite part of the plan.

The one positive is that the whisky I'm drinking was a christmas gift so I'm still "clean" in the sense that I haven't spent a penny on drink. I'm pretty sure that if I got on anxiety medication or really ingrained some anti-anxiety CBT techniques in my brain I would basically have no reason to drink.

/news/17177 UK army recruitment ads target 'snowflake' millennials
> The British army is calling on “snowflakes, selfie addicts, class clowns, phone zombies, and me, me, millennials” to join its ranks in a recruitment drive targeting young people.

> The campaign, featuring posters and TV ads titled Your Army Needs You, suggests that what is seen as a weakness or a character flaw by the rest of society can be seen as a strength by the army. The campaign states that the army could use the “compassion” of “snowflakes”, the “self-belief” of millennials, the “confidence” of selfie takers, and the “focus” of phone zombies.

> The ad also shows a gamer up all night, which the army sees as showing stamina and dedication. In another scene, someone is shown slowly stowing supermarket shopping trolleys, to the annoyance of their workmates, but the army could instead read this as them being a slow and steady perfectionist with patience.

I personally can't see any good coming from employing a snowflakes compassion in an army role, and also, that fucking leap from just putting trolleys away.

The Economist.jpg
I was looking on ebay for old election junk (Because of course I was, I'm a right saddo.) and this set of issues of The Economist is up. That headline in the bottom right: "Tories deserve to lose: Labour doesn't deserve to win." That fascinates me, it's one of those little things you dig up that goes against the flow. These instances of quiet unease and cynicism before 1997 fascinate me. There was another article I can never find - I'm sure it was in The Independent from about 1995 or 1996 - that basically said while Labour was polling great and certain to win, the party faithful were miserable because they had to explain some rather boring, incremental policies on the doorstep rather than gushing about the bigger ones that made them enthusiastic about Labour politics in the first place.
Obviously knowing the Conservatives were going to get their teeth kicked in for once was great, and that made up the overtone of the campaign. Even the grumpiest of old-Labour holdouts would've had to smile at the sight of them falling on election night, but that less-noticed undertone interests me more because it foreshadows the impending malaise. The "meh." election of 2001 and good old 35/55/2005. Heck, even the 1997 election had a very long campaign period for an election that was won before the campaign began.

It's not a huge leap to expect that The Economist would be somewhat sympathetic to Major and The Independent circa 1996 would be underwhelmed by Blairism. From the current vantage point, the most striking fact is the disparity between the relative competence of Major and the drubbing he took in '97. Subsequent Tory leaders have rather changed his legacy.

There was undoubtedly a malaise with regards to New Labour after the millennium, but there was also a sense of inevitability. Why bother turning out to vote for Blair in 2001, when Hague couldn't win a meat raffle? Much of Cameron's tenure had the same basic dynamic, albeit without the initial rush of optimism.

I suspect that disenchantment is an inevitable product of remaining in office. Reality can never measure up to expectation. If you actually improve the country, you'll eventually hit the point of diminishing returns and be criticised for losing your touch. If you're a competent caretaker, you'll be criticised for doing fuck all. It's really hard to run a country and people will always hate you for trying, even if you're actually doing a decent job of it.

/art/5552 Looking for a video
I recall seeing a video maybe 8-10 years ago which this sculpture reminded me of. Does this bring anything to mind?

I think I might have found it on here, spent 20 minutes googling and youtubing but haven't got a clue.

It's like a 5~ minute video of a dilapidated factory, shots lasting maybe 30 seconds-1 min, set on top of some ambient industrial music.

It consists of figures like the one inset, kind of warped and dissociative imagery with these figures spasming and disintegrating. They're all CGI, I think.

It might be part of the same video, the other image I have is of these figures falling sideways into some sort of cube or surface and disintegrating. Possibly representing God, I'm not quite sure.

This was from before I'd tried acid.

30W/channel of class A is going to be quite hot, regardless of whether it's idling or running flat out. Any particular reason why you think Class A is what you want?
It really is the wrong way to build audio amps, unless you're working under some quite peculiar constraints.
If you're doing it for fun, then knock yourself out, there's no great difficulty to it - they're simple enough, especially as I imagine you'll also be eschewing feedback.
Note that most modern MOSFETs are crap at being analogue transistors, they're designed to be switches, not to dither around at half-on, when they'll develop hot spots internally and fail orders of magnitude before you'd expect them to.

I just want to listen to a class A amp for a while and see if it sounds any better. I've used tube amps before and I do think they sound better with certain kinds of music, but not enough that I would use one all the time.

I don't care if the output transistors burn out faster because I can just order some more from Digikey or whatever.

A book on amp design would also be nice so I have some idea of what I'm doing. But I'm perfectly happy to just blindly follow a schematic.

Something like
The wrong MOSFETs used in linear mode - you won't be replacing them every few weeks, more like 50ms after power-on. Linear ones do exist, they just cost a bit more and are very different architecturally.
That linked design uses classic old bipolar 2N3055s for the power stage - as long as you buy legit ones, they're quite robust, but there are a vast number of knockoffs with implausibly small die, thin heat spreader cases and generally smoke fodder.

I think what drives a stalker is typically their belief that they could have, or already do have, a personal or intimate relationship with the person they're stalking, so them actively deciding to pretend to be a pap would be like them admitting that the celeb isn't actually going to be their girlfriend.

Having said that I'm sure I read of some stalker pretending to be the celeb victims maid or housekeeper or whatever to get inside the house, so maybe more stalkers should be considering devious plans.

>It goes on to state that the teen 'welcomed drinks from [Spacey], let [Spacey] put his arm around him near the piano while they did sing-a-longs and even left the bar to smoke with [Spacey].' That behavior, combined with the fact that the teen gave Spacey his number, suggests 'mutual and consensual flirting' states the motion.

>At no point does Spacey deny groping the young man.

>The motion states that once Spacey began to grope his accuser the teen 'did not object to the alleged touching, he did not ask [Spacey] to stop and he did not remove himself from the situation.' In the initial filing the accuser said that this was because he froze, and suggested his lack of an erection as proof he was not enjoying the sex act.

Is an erection proof one way or another whether an assault occurred?

In this thread I am going to rank various foodstuffs. You don't have to agree with my opinion, but then you'd be wrong.

I shall start with baked beans. The best baked beans are by Branston. The second best baked beans are Corale beans by Aldi.

When is the backlash going to start against all this sassy reply bullshit that comes out of corporate twitter accounts these days? You're Greggs for fucks sake, have some self-respect.

I wonder if we'll start seeing the vegan equivalent white van men. You'll be innocently walking to the shops and a couple of art hoes will start hurling sexual offers at you from their van and you can't tell them to go fuck themselves because what with being all monists it's what they're asking for in a roundabout way.

I find it very difficult to enjoy oven chips after a career of being able to pick at fresh chips straight out of a fryer. They're just not the same.

How much of this fair land of ours have you lads actually visited?

I've just been thinking about it and there's so many places in Britain I've never particularly laid my eyes on, especially the scenery and landscapes of Scotland. What are the "hidden gems" here that you would recommend people really should visit at least once in their lives? Unhidden gems too, for that matter.

It's just one of those commuter towns with a couple of council estates. It feels grim because it's the sort of place where you live, and maybe have a local pub in, but you work in Leeds and more often go out in Leeds (or Wakey if you're on a budget). The only people stuck in the town itself are doleys, teenage delinquents and pensioners. There are places like that up and down this country.

Sor of related, I know a lass from York who works in Leeds, and is moving to Castleford. She says it seems nice and she never goes out in York anyway. She's in for a shock and it's going to be funny as fuck.

You should go to M&Ms world in Leicester square. That place is bizarre. I went the other day and the stench is unbelievable: the smell of m&ms is so strong it almost gives you an instant headache.

What an odd thing. Leicester square itself is a bit of a mystery, but four floors devoted to one brand of chocolate? I'd forgive it were it something like 'Dairy Milk World' or 'Jaffa Cake Land'. I think, rather wonderfully, Leicester square demonstrates the clear crapness of our nation.

If you think it's bad now, the Haribo factory USED to be the massive building near the Morrison's. Imagine the smell then.

I always though the new factory looks far too dystopic to be a sweet factory.

Agreed, you never forget the smell of M&Ms World.

Even the concept of the place is utterly baffling. There are like five floors, maybe more. It's one in one of the biggest tourist spots in the country.

And it's filled, wall to wall, with merchandise of M&Ms.

And inexplicably, after ten years, it's still there.

It makes as much sense as a Twix theme park.

Oh, she's in for an absolute treat. It's a toss up between Cas and Dewsbury for the worst commuter town for working in Leeds.

So my Three contract (24m One Plan at £33.50pm) is finally bloody ending and I'd rather not keep paying for this lacklustre Galaxy S4. It's caused me more bother than good.

Do any of you chaps have recommendations for a more modern handset, perhaps on contract at a lesser price? Stock Android is a bonus. Expandable memory is a must.

In my poo I have seen chunks of nut, sweetcorn, peas and seeds. It seems plausible to me that you could have solid rice in a Tues; it seems like one of those things your innards wouldn't break down fully.

Just over a month of using the POCO, my thoughts:

- Really, really responsive and fast.
- Really good battery life.
- Once you get past the 72 hour bullshittery, rooting and installing recovery was smooth and you can still even use official updates (though updating to Android 9 did overwrite the custom recovery).
- Feels really nice in the hand.
- Barely gets warm, even under stress.
- MicroSD card slot.
- 3.5mm headphone jack.

- Screen is LCD so backlight is clearly visible.
- Notch cannot be 'hidden' in MIUI 10.

> MIUI 10 also really does not like playing with my WearOS smartwatch - it seems to force applications to sleep to conserve battery life, meaning that my watch loses connection to my phone unless I'm listening to music.

Aggressive dozing is pretty typical for MIUI.
Unfortunately I don't remember what things there are to be ticked off in order to lessen this problem.

Great phone until the defective charge cable almost set fire to my bed and burnt the contacts on the charge port.

Going to get a Honor Play since the hype has slapped another hundred quid on the Poco.

If you amass a collection of 80,000 ebooks, including people's vanity-published dreck, I think that must be somewhat similar to the experience of attacking a slush-pile. You have two pages to get my attention. If not, next.
