I think there are two things that are going to hurt the US badly - as you say, their misplaced ideas about what constitutes "freedom" means they aren't likely to quarantine or shutdown places like China would. The second part is that this is showing up what happens when you have absolutely no healthcare system to speak of - hence the debacle where some states have only run double-digits in numbers of tests.

> The second part is that this is showing up what happens when you have absolutely no healthcare system to speak of

A long time ago (2011, I think) I had a long, long talk over 30 or 40 beers with a fairly right-wing chap who was opposed to universal health care. Eventually I was able to persuade him that universal healthcare was important precisely because people who aren't vaccinated or can't afford to see a doctor will keep on going into work and spreading disease to vulnerable people which will, overall, hurt society more than simply paying for that person's basic healthcare. Apparently it was a point of view that a 30 year old had never considered before. Jesus wept.

Anyway, I feel like I'm rambling but I think this year he's finally going to get the practical half of the lesson 9 years after the theory part.

My coworker smells like used gym socks and he apparently never used a toothbrush in his life. I asked him twice to eat in the canteen since his food smells awful. I told him that I eat there to not leave food odours in the office, and he said “I do not mind if you eat here!” I answered him “I do” while pinching my nose. Now he’s acting all offended. We are both brown, so no racism issue. Any clue to solve the situation diplomatically?

It's always an option. However, I merely think the answer is an obvious one; you've got to tell him he smells awfully bad. He'll either thank you for it or think you're the biggest cunt in the history of the world, but there really isn't a good way to do this.

I think that about covers it.

OP, short of coming up with ever more inventive ways to steal his lunch in the day and relocate it to the canteen with clever and heartwarming treasure trail clues to lead him there I can't think of any diplomatic way to solve this. There is a non-diplomatic solution in calling the feds (HR) and having them kaibosh the practice of eating at one's desk. It's technically a health and safety issue due to standing NHS advice on allergens and allergy sufferers, basically don't put them in the same room as one another. Doesn't matter if the food he eats is allergenic or not, it's the principle. The canteen exists for a reason. He'll know it was you though, and being brown he might blow you up after the fact.

Therein lies the issue. If he's a temp he more than likely just doesn't give a fuck. On the flipside that means you don't have to give much of a fuck if you offend him. I'd go a little harder on him if I were you.

Have you tried telling him he's a dirty curry smelling inbred laplander and he's making you look bad by association in front of all the white folks?

/boo/4831 Aliens
The Area 51 thing was a massive wet fart, but it got me nostalgic for the old days where it wasn't all about chemtrails, Jews being behind 9/11, and flat-earth nonsense. Back then it was believable, grounded stuff like flying saucers and men in black. So let's talk about aliens.

Do you believe in aliens? Do you believe we are visited by aliens? Have you ever seen or encountered any aliens? Does the government know about aliens but cover it up? Did aliens visit and influence our ancestors in the past? Are aliens friendly, benign, or threatening?

Aliens are a very compelling subject. Why is the classic description of a grey so fundamentally creepy? Why have aliens and the things that surround them, UFOs, men in black, become such an ingrained part of modern folklore? Why have they fallen into the background in modern times, to be replaced with anti-intellectual/anti-science conspiracy theories for home schooling bible-bashing wierdos? Is this paradigm shift representative of the cultural era we have moved into?

I've never really spoken about this to anyone before, I'm not 100% saying it was an alien or anything but I think this is the right place to tell this story.

In 2013 I fucked up a quite important exam and needed to get away for a few days. A mate of mine was going down to Cornwall camping with some hippie friends of his and I agreed to tag along. There was a big permanent Ghegnis Khan style tent at the campsite with a stove in it etc and we basically would just sit up all night in there drinking and chatting or (when it wasn't raining) we would do like a fire outside.

On the last night before we went home we ran out of firewood and so I went over to the next campsite over to borrow some wood. We'd spoken to the people who were staying there quite a bit and knew they wouldn't mind. There were these long holes in the ground between the campsites and it was really dark so I can't really say for sure but Worf was there.

I love reading about this sort of stuff even from a sceptical point of view. Just the history of it all and the real-life behind the scenes stuff we've since learned about, and of course that grain of hopefulness you'll find something genuinely unexplainable.

They exist but the distances between us and them are so great that unless they've cracked warp/hyperspace/inertialess drives we'll probably never encounter them.

And if they do have the means to get here then we'd be insignificant to them unless we just happened to be the 1st alien race they come across. Even then, they may have some means to monitor us without us knowing or choose to leave us alone until we've cracked FTL.

I was once awoken by this low humming sound and bright lights. Decided to investigate and as I went through my kitchen to the back door I saw this midget thing with big eyes and an egg shaped head in front of my freezer. It was holding a bag of petis pois and with long slender fingers from it's other hand I could see it pushing some sort of appendage into the bag of frozen veg. I was shitting myself at this point, suddenly some force froze me solid and I couldn't move. The thing in front of my freezer spun round and looked deep into my eyes with a piercing stare. I was totally shitting myself. Then the thing sent some kind of telepathic message, it spoke without moving it's mouth.
I come in peas, it said.

That's not what my lad Stephen Bush said in the e-mail this morning - and I always listen to Stephen Bush.

(He is better at thinking than me, so I just let him think for me now.)

>Rishi Sunak will announce the biggest expansion in government borrowing in British political history as he approves a slew of infrastructure projects in his budget today, as he takes advantage of the era of low interest rates.

>And they're getting lower: the Bank of England has cut rates to 0.25 per cent in a boost to help the economy see its way through a covid-19 induced economic shock.

>Those two stories illustrate the benefit and the cost of the era of low low interest rates: on the one hand, governments can borrow more than they could in the past. The way that the British government structures its debt means that it may have even great wriggle room than many other states. But the downside is that when you hit an economic downturn, pretty much all the heavy lifting has to be done by fiscal policy, that is, through tax-and-spend.

>That reality is one reason why Sunak may be wise to avoid too much borrowing outside of infrastructure spending and measures to respond to the crisis - and that for all the talk of ending austerity, and the reality of increased spending for police, the NHS and education, the story for large parts of the public realm today will be the continuation of spending restraint rather than its end.

It's good to see them investing again, and you can certainly see this as a bit of a vindication to Labour's "we won the argument" mantra.

I can't help but feel like it's a bit late though. It's all well and good pledging money for infrastructure when most of it will just go into fixing the damage ten years of neglect has caused.


They absolutely are fucked, but not because the Tories have nicked their politics. It's because Labour will do what they always do and piss about trying to position themselves as opposed to all of it, instead of standing up and saying "See? They've admitted we were right all along!" and driving that point home.

I feel you.

I upgraded my system a couple of months ago, and the most fun I've actually had with it is the first couple of weeks where I was repeatedly running benchmarks, swapping out the fans, and tweaking the fan curves to see how quiet I could make it without getting into throttling territory.

Still undecided if the pair of 140mm fans I had in the front before were better than the higher spec 120mm ones I have in now, because I feel like they blow a bit too exclusively at the GPU and starve the CPU radiator a bit. If I was to swap them and test it out, I could easily waste a week tinkering without booting up a single game.

I need some relationship advice lads.

I've just got off the phone to my partner (we're both away dealing with our own things at the moment) and it wasn't the most uplifting chat we have ever had.

It revolved around my actions, and how I have been inconsiderate on a few occasions and how this has made her feel, especially what had happened this last weekend. Whilst I certainly agree with some of it and disagree with other points she made, I said I would reflect on it and think about what she was saying (truth be told, I'm not sure what to reflect on, sometimes I am genuinally cluelessly inconsiderate, I have never intentionally done something to hurt her).

The conversation ended with an ultimatum. We have discussed marriage before (her more so eagerly than me) and whilst she loves me (and she does, a great deal), she has given me until the end of May to propose or that would be it.

Normally, I would consider an ultimatum of any sort a negative suggestion, but maybe she has a point? I love her dearly and the thought of her not being in my life and all of the upheaval it brings fills me with anxiety and sadness, but maybe I don't want marriage and it is unfair for her to continue under the assumption it would happen (she is older than me as well so biological clocks and all that are a cause of concern for her).

I just need some advice to try and get my head together, or to try and get an idea of what to think about and how to approach this. I'm concerned that all I am thinking about are the ways a break up would affect me (financially etc) so perhaps I am the inconsiderate one.

Anyone willing to have a chat and guide me a bit would be greatly appreciated.

Might try and get both me and my dad drunk this Friday to have a chat about it, it's the only way we can have heart to hearts.

> "I wan't to marry you, but if not, I'll have to marry someone else, I AM getting married, that is happening"

This is almost word for word what happened to me a while back. The lass in question got it into her head that she was going to get married by some arbitrary birthday which was about two years away and as she knew I wasn't keen on remarrying her basic rationale was that she'd better get out there and start meeting someone who would marry her.

Even though our relationship carried on for a bit in an on again/off again kind/what the fuck is going on now kind of way she would always make snide comments bringing up the fact that I wasn't "going to change" and decide to marry her and she was in effect "wasting her time".

Needless to say in the end I just let her get on her way. It wasn't healthy for either of us.

I mean, what is a wedding for her? Is she meticulously planning her 'special day' or literally just asking you to pop down the registry office?

Thirded, Jon Bois is Pretty Good. The College American Football game that ended 222-0 video sticks out in my mind.

I haven't really been keeping track of his recent works outside of Fighting in the Age of Loneliness though, he collaborates a lot more now.

Felix Biederman narrating this ended up getting me into Chapo Trap House quite heavily, I'm still not sure if that's a good thing or not.

This is interesting so far. Not quite sure where he's going with all the socioeconomic stuff but I guess I'll find out.

I wish the producers wouldn't use that fucking "watercolour" filter on all the live video, though. I wonder if they're trying to avoid DMCA takedowns? Pretty irritating.

/zoo/24267 UK.. I've come back, and I need your help
I am a 24 year old American who has never had a job because I am a socially anxious diagnosed autist with no frens and my father keeps breathing down my neck to get one.. I've tried my hardest to find and get one but no one cares. And I would do other things like go to university but I'm a disorderly idiot at that and I can't do the military either because I don't want to fight for Israel plus I'd fail at that because I'm physically weak. I would create a business but I lack fuck all for that as well.

What do I do, UK? I'm so fucked...

Yeah, but handing in CVs you could get an interview for a job that hasn't been advertised or at least one that hasn't been advertised some place where candidates are machine gunning in applications. The competition would be much less stiff.

If you're sending 100 applications a day there's a very good chance you're doing it wrong anyway.

Nah, that's very much doing it right; at least for entry level jobs, which sounds like the sort of advice this thread pertains to. Usually a job that hasn't been advertised is something much more specialised, so while there might be less competition it's less likely you'd actually be qualified for it. That's not just a needle in a haystack, it's a diamond ring of exactly your size in a cornfield.

There's a myth about copy/pasting applications meaning you'll get binned every time. It's got a grain of truth to it, but not quite. Nowadays, applications are scanned by software multiple times before they even make it to a person; if you have the right keywords and structure in there that the software looks for you've won half the battle.

Wasting your time writing up a fresh application from scratch for every shite call centre job is a waste of time thanks to the same principle as the hunter analogy.

Not him, but if I got handed a paper CV that someone had brought in in person I'd pay it much more attention that the dozens of electronic applications I had to process that day. You're probably right about the numbers game but I think you hit a point where you've applied to all the potential jobs you can online - pounding the pavements is a perfectly good decision at some stage. Not least to get you out the house for a bit.

I think if you have a confident personality, and can pitch yourself well in a couple of sentences, turning up in person like that can really work. Most people (particularly those who are jobless) don't have that kind of personality though.

>>DS9 ripped off B5

This guy gets it. Hell, they only made the decision to set the next Trek on a space station when they heard B5 was actually going to air.

B5 was always the better of the two shows. DS9 was a fucking snooze-fest for the first two seasons. You'd watch B5 and they were setting up not one but TWO major wars, and then you'd look at DS9 and it was yet another "Constable, it's all kicking off on the Promenade!"

We were having a fun conversation at work today about what if Corrie went on a mad one, and had a year long plot arc about the bombs dropping and Ken Barlow and the gang surviving in a post nuclear Salford. Then they wrap it all up with an arc about David travelling back in time to prevent it all, thus reverting the show to the status quo as if nothing had ever happened.

Nothing about the idea of star trek is sacred now so they are honestly capable of anything. It is well within the realms of possibility by the end of this season Picard ends up on the run from the police after someone plants a dead hooker in the boot of his car to stop him getting somewhere in time to stop the bomb going off, whilst trying to attend both his wife's birthday and watch the big game with his boss at the same time with hilarious consequences.

In a country like the U.S. with a sizeable number of people who are white, free, and 21 and struggle to maintain a roof over their heads or three meals a day, providing free room and board for a segment of the population that has broken society's rules seems like an outrageous thing to do. Then again, it really reflects badly on a society, especially in a rich country as the U.S., when it cares fuck all about those that have failed but potentially have done nothing wrong their entire lives in the eyes of the law, and effectively affords them a poorer standard of living than that of a convicted felon. Smug white middle class people volunteering in soup kitchens and counting their blessings on the way back to their suburban four-bedroom homes isn't the same as having a government system in place that makes comprehensive efforts to help the poor and get them out of poverty.

So I guess then in Norway, a country with one of the highest baseline standards of living in the world and a rock solid social safety net, it doesn't seem like an outrageous thing to do to have a prison island that really looks more like a holiday resort.

You do occasionally read about blokes in this country committing petty crimes almost immediately after being released from prison and claiming that they only did them because they don't want to sleep on the streets.

>You do occasionally read about blokes in this country committing petty crimes almost immediately after being released from prison and claiming that they only did them because they don't want to sleep on the streets.

I think it's also because after five or more years in the clink, they're struggling to adapt to the outside world. In prison, your entire day is structured from beginning to end, you have no noteworthy say in it, everything is taken care of for you. And to then go back out and do all the things a responsible adult is supposed to do, like hold down a job, deal with authorities, and find a place to live, must seem daunting.

As far as I am aware though, there are enough programmes for released offenders to help them back on their feet. And it can be done. The most crucial thing, if I remember my prison pop psychology 101 correctly, is that these people are kept from reassociating with their old peers that led them to commit the crimes that they went to prison for. Your parole conditions can even spell that out as a requirement.
