I'm surprised you can't get vegetarian pork pies yet. Quorn scotch eggs are the only processed veggie food that actually taste similar to the real thing, although you can make your own kind of passable ones if you wrap sosmix around a boiled egg and cover it in breadcrumbs.

Shows how much Solskjaer (I've probably got that wrong) has lost control of the dressing room. Pogba in particular is the sort of Drogba-esque prima donna who needs a good slapping down. Ole strikes me as too nice a manager, great at motivating a team that's already doing well but terrible at whipping an underperforming team into shape when they're demoralised.

Bar the typical American fashion self-help giddy bollocks it's been an interesting story so far (I'm 6-7 chapters in).
There about half a chapter where he muses about the reasons he'd got into this shit (namely BUD/S training). I still have a hard time fully grasping all the self-imposed suffering. Not that I don't understand it; three Hell Weeks and the rest of that spec ops training plus the 100 mile marathon in 24 hours without any bloody preparation - it's just so much for one human being that I cannot fully comprehend it as a grand scheme.

If I enter a pay and display car park without dedicated motorcycle parking, can I just park in an empty strip of space somewhere out of the way or do I need to pay to use a dedicated spot for a car? I see plenty of people park the former way but I'm wondering what the likelihood of getting penalised by a car park attendant is.

I know this is a shite answer but it really does just depend on the car park, who runs it, and possibly how much of a cunt the attendant feels like being.

Logically the company should want you to park outside of a bay because that means they have room for another customer. I reckon as long as you're not blocking anything (I'm sure you're not) then you'll probably be fine, but really the only way to know for sure is to ring whoever runs the car park and ask.

I bought one. I think I was making clients nervous showing up to places in my rusty dodgy looking Micra so my internal justification is that a Mini always looks quite nice and normal and a car you'd expect a consultant to show up in at your place of business, but it's actually still almost as cheap as a Micra.

My girlfriend has sussed out that I'm not as invested in the relationship as her, and I feel bad about it because it's just before we both have exams.

I wanted to have a talk but I was holding on until after the exam period and into the summer when I could actually meet up with her again, as we're long distance, but as she's called me on it I can't lie to her.

She's sweet and very caring (and I care about her a lot) but cripplingly shy and anxious, I catch her deleting messages to me constantly and last time I met her she hadn't planned anything around her town because she simply doesn't have the confidence to. I was a bit put off by that, but went ahead and found things for us to do anyway. It's a trend though, she has a panic disorder and her mental health is just something I can't really do anything about other than to be kind to her.

I think the real core of the issue is the age gap though. It's about 7 years, and although people often say it'll be the younger one that will get flighty and want to meet other people in this case it's me. I've been through my early 20s with similarly bad mental health myself, and while I appreciate having someone who understands why I'm still particularly quiet and shy it's just tiring dealing with all these things for a second time through my partner. I want to help her, but I also want to take advantage of finally having a fairly clean bill of health and confidence myself and the long distance coupled with her own issues makes that difficult. I'm also about to finish my 20s and really want to figure out what I need in a longterm relationship, I'm not even sure if I'm cut out for relationships in the long run.

And finally it's just sad when someone says they miss you and the most I can do is call her.

I wish I had some friends or male relatives that could give me relationship advice but they all either avoid the topic or are dead :(

I'm going to be blunt with you here ladm9. I want you to understand it's out of kindness, but the prognosis doesn't sound good, from what you've told us.

The fact she's starting to feel like you're less invested in the relationship, coupled with her existing anxiety issues, and the stress of distance on top, is not a good combination. Distance itself is enough to bring a relationship to its knees. I think perhaps what you need to ask yourself is how easy it would be to resolve the distance problem. Is it just a temporary state out of necessity, or would there still be an issue of separation after you're both finished with your course and moving on?

I don't think the age gap is really a big deal necessarily. I think generally once people have reached a certain age, they're about as "mature" as they're going to get, and it's a fallacy that you grow considerably wiser with age. You learn from mistakes and have invariably made more mistakes when you are older, but that doesn't mean someone younger is unable to relate. The core of it is, as you say, you feel like this isn't the right situation for you right now. If you're being honest with yourself, you just want to add a few more notches to your bedpost.

While I don't think the two of you are completely doomed, I don't think it would be wise to continue the relationship in its current course. Given the distance, maybe it's a good idea to suggest a break or some sort of open relationship arrangement while the two of you can't be physically together. Now, of course, I realise that if you suggest that, it has the potential to go down about as well as a sack of lead on a pool toy, but if you don't take some form of action you could well be heading for a miserable and heartbreaking split.

If you can persuade her it makes sense to temporarily put things on the back-burner until you're both in a position to make it a more real, physical relationship, you might just avoid that. In the mean time you'll get to boost your confidence and make up for some lost time. Naturally there's the risk either of you could meet someone else, and of course you have to accept that if you're going to be free to sleep with other people, so will she. But that's just the way these things go I'm afraid.

I think if you are both truly right for each other you'll overcome those things. If not, fate simply took its course.

I've decided I'd be probably be happiest living a minimalist lifestyle while doing just enough work to get by, preferably from home. Does anyone have experience with this?

I don't have any qualifications so my options are currently limited to doing stuff like transcription and tech support. At the rate I type I'd probably eke out slightly above minimum wage transcribing stuff.

What about more lucrative or more long-term options? Is learning to program from scratch and becoming a telecommuting code monkey a feasible thing to do? If so, what language would give a noob the best job prospects?

The curriculum and course material look reasonably good. It's not quite as in-depth as FreeCodeCamp, but that's potentially an advantage if you have limited technical experience or you're intimidated by the sheer scope of the FreeCodeCamp course. FreeCodeCamp definitely have better materials on getting hired, particularly their partnerships with non-profit organisations to help students build a portfolio of real-world projects.

If I could have the superpowers from any film then it would be those of the character Hal from Shallow Hal, portrayed by Jack Black.

Any girl you saw with a genuinely nice personality would look like a legitimate 10/10 stunner, so you could spend the rest of your days sleeping with absolute fuggos who look like supermodels to you and they'd probably so grateful for attention that they'd let you do almost any depraved thing you wanted like pissing up their arse.

You'd have this lovely wholesome girl who looked like an absolute worldwide, guaranteed to have an amazing personality, who would do anything in bed to please you and you wouldn't have the hassle of other lads constantly hitting on her like you'd have with a 10/10 in real life.

If I had the powers of Hal from Shallow Hal then life would be pretty sweet, pretty sweet indeed.

The value might get wiped out in a bart, the exchange you buy from is probably shady as shit if they're not doing KYC checks and are liable to just run off with the cash and your crypto before you can shift them, and the exchange you cash out from might suddenly develop "technical difficulties".

/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?

Three great late twentieth century female writers: Muriel Spark the very quirky borderline insane Catholic convert, Kathy Acker the patron saint of all bad girls and adventuresses, Andrea Dworkin the intolerant anti-porn feminist who could put a sentence together like no-one else in the world whatever you may think of her views.

And I'd say the Bronte sisters are the absolute cornerstones of femaile literature, and all three of them are very much worth reading and surprisingly different in style and viewpoint.

Can you create your own alternative to @risk and build your own monte carloe simulation on excel?

Well, I'm not going to tell you how to commit crime. But if you really do want to build and run mathematical simulations then VBA is certainly not the way to go. It's clumsy, and you'll be stuck doing anything beyond the rudimentary.

C++ is the go-to language for this sort of thing (in my experience, though I expect to start an argument) but as a novice you'd be better off studying Python. It has a more intuitive syntax for developing your own algorithms. Get to grips with the basics of the ubiquitous NumPy package. And try following guides like this hastily-googled one:

I've just read up about the algorithm here

And honestly it seems quite simple. Much simpler than formula I've built in the past.
It isn't a crystal ball for predicting the future and I'm not sold on its value as an investment tool. It clearly has real world applications but I think you would be better looking at events rather than presuming because a snapshot of the sales of pumpkins shows a significant increase of sales in October they will continue to rise in November.

>C++ is the go-to language for this sort of thing (in my experience, though I expect to start an argument)

In my experience regardless of how obnoxious and clunky it maybe, people want these things modled in excel (not even VBA) on the vague presumption they can follow your working out. They don't trust the magic black box of 'programming'.

It's entirely possible I still have the world, but don't hold your breath.

I've been giving serious thought to getting a sidecar motorcycle as an alternative to car:

- get one made before or in 1979 and it's classified as a historic vehicle (probably some sort of old BMW copy like an Ural but it could also be an old Jap bike with a sidecar attached)
- no London congestion charge because it's still a motorcycle
- no London emmissions charge because it's exempt as a historic vehicle
- no MOT fees because it's exempt as a historic vehicle
- no road tax because it's exempt as a historic vehicle
- cheap insurance because it's a historic vehicle
- better fuel economy than a typical hatchback
- can use motorcycle parking bays
- practical because the sidecar is basically the same size as the boot of a small car
- not as much of a hassle as a classic car because of the simplicity/ease of maintenance of motorcycles

This strikes me as an incredibly genius idea but I'm pretty drunk right now.

I'm not really a Bike Guy but this sounds like a solid plan to me, too, as long as you're confident you can get the parts and keep a bike that old running.

Also I've never seen a bike with sidecar park in a motorbike bay, you'd probably end up taking up two or three spaces.

I like the plan in many ways, but the only problem is that with a sidecar you lose one of the primary benefits of having a bike - filtering through traffic; you would essentially be the width of a small car, and so would end up sitting in a lot more traffic than you would on a normal bike.

Have always wanted one too (particularly some of the old BMW ones) but not as a main/commuting bike.

The handling of a sidecar outfit is really fucking weird. You're totally asymmetrical and the weight distribution changes radically depending on who or what is in the sidecar. It's not like you have to totally re-learn how to ride, but there is a fairly steep learning curve and a lot of your instincts can get you into trouble.

I think pretty much every old Soviet machine was designed to be easily fixed with a hammer and some basic tools...but I've heard that the biggest problem is that you'll be doing a lot of fixing. I've never seen a sidecar in a motorbike bay either, but I've also never seen anyone riding a sidecar bike either.

Very true, that's why I emphasised it being an alternative to a small car in this very specific set of circumstances. There isn't much benefit if you don't need to haul a bunch of shit within central London, or greater London if the ULEZ extension in 2021 proceeds as planned.

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?

It didn't fill me with trepidation, unlike the Artemis Fowl trailer, so I guess that's a plus.

World Book Day: Parents spend more on outfits than they do on novels

That doesn't surprise me. Most of the kids I've seen going to school this morning seemed to be dressed as superheroes or Disney princesses.

That's not really surprising. Clothes are expensive, books are not.

How do you square your conspiracy theory with the BBC's decision to write and prominently feature a story on nothing but Grayling's "record of mishaps and mistakes"?

What's your favourite Ristorante pizza?

I usually go for the Mozzarella one, it's hard to beat those little flavour explosions of garlic butter. I would prefer the Funghi ones, the taste and the flavour of the mushrooms is magnificent for the price, but it's not stocked in many places.

At least the "meat" on this isn't going to be a load of barbecue-flavoured floor sweepings with seams of Transglutaminase. That shit is enough to make a bloke go veggie.
