what scares me about Jim Davidson is that he looks like a perfect hybrid of my dad and my mum, like they've been put in the teleporter from The Fly together.

The terrifying part is that this means he probably represents exactly what I'll look like at that age.

I have noticed that carpet-baggers and sex pests usually have hair, even if they are balding they tend to cling on to what they have left. There are obviously some notable exceptions, like Gary Glitter or that squeaky little feller on the youtube memes, but by and large, a man who can be arsed to shave his bonce is not a carpet-bagger.

Huh, mine too. If you write the multiplication symbol explicitly it'll say 9. Clearly scientific calculators have additional grouping rules on top of BODMAS that most computer tools don't. I think programmer types will definitely parse it as 9 but if you've primarily used hardware calculators then sure, I guess.

I won't disagree with you. HP stopped making really great calculators about twenty years ago when they moved all the manufacturing to China. On the plus side, they are much cheaper now.

I have an ageing HP20S which is really good, it works fine, but the power button is gone so I have to hold a load of buttons down to get it alive and have to wait for it to time-out to switch off, so it eats batteries more than it did originally. Sad times.

/news/28800 Leeds officer dressed as clown during five-year undercover police operation
Millions of pounds of public money was “misspent” on undercover policing operations – which included an officer being trained as a clown, a public inquiry has been told.

>Peter Weatherby QC, who is representing 18 individuals and organisations who have been spied on, played a video of an officer known as EN34, whose undercover name was “Lynn Watson”, on Tuesday.

>In the clip, filmed in Leeds in 2004, she appears in costume and clown make-up, waving a feather duster, as part of the Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Clown Army (Circa) – a street performance campaign group.

>Mr Weatherby said EN34 infiltrated the group, along with a series of other peace and environmental campaigns, over a five-year period during which she “befriended and tricked countless individuals”.

>He also showed a picture of HN118, whose assumed name was “Simon Wellings”, who he said used his time undercover to build an orange military tank out of plywood and cardboard.

>The officer was photographed at an anti-arms trade protest in the tank with the Globalise Resistance group, which he infiltrated from 2002 until he was unmasked in 2004.

I assume the argument is that violent groups are usually grown out of non violent groups (like the way alf is the militant wing of peta to anyone in the know even though officially they aren't they just happen to spring spontaneity) so they need to infiltrate the non violent groups to be in a position to join the violent groups when they start which means being a known violent to begin with.

It is all ends justify the means crap, but I see the slip.

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/13168292/daredevil-brit-climber-19-strips-naked-660ft-crane-benidorm/

Adam Lockwood, 19, clambered up the construction crane in Benidorm, Spain, last weekend.

He removed his climbing trousers and shoes and hung from the 200 metre crane's arm with both hands in a death-defying stunt.

For the daredevil climber from Manchester, it was the latest in a series of jaw-dropping climbs he has achieved, but the first he has completed by hanging naked.

If you get a kick out of the possibility of absolutely life ending mistakes that could happen at any time within split seconds, and so much so that you become addicted to the experience, then I am sorry but you're just a bit too fucked in the head to be allowed to be out in the world where you are obviously a danger to yourself, and possibly others.

Let's get all femanista for a bit, lads. I was just scrolling down the list of IMDb's Top 250 - which are still all excellent films - and I was struck by just how male the list is. You have to go all the way down to The Silence of the Lambs before you get a lone female protagonist, and even then more people remember that film for Anthony Hopkins than Jodie Foster.

So I want to broaden my horizons - what are your favourite films about and starring women? I'm talking about ones that are mainly women in the cast - don't just say the Alien films.

For instance I liked The Help. I found Little Women mediocre, though.

I actually thought this was quite over rated. Likely because it was recommended a few times so I hyped it up a bit in my head. A lot of the visuals and special effects looked like I was on an lsd trip. I have a feeling some of the production dropped a few tabs while making this.

>>23366
>female-centric film without excluding men for the sake of it

Yeah It's pretty noticeable when this happens.

Characteristics like sex, race or nationality are hard to change in long standing media characters especially, people get quite attached to the way characters look. I read something about a female black 007 in the next James Bond. James is distinctly a native English bloke, meaning white Anglican looking, and a bloke. I doubt the viewing figures will be high on that film if they make sweeping changes so frivolously.

Alright you two.

I'm usually pretty good at tracking down songs that people half-remember, like a shitter version of Shazam, but this one has me stumped. A mate has given me a line and a basic melody of a song he remembers from an advert.

It's a happy upbeat song, which goes something along the lines of "I found something new, and baby I'll share it with you".

On my Google hunt, I came across this unanswered forum post (pic related) from January 2006, from someone clearly looking for the same thing. Now, they say it's from a Mars advert they saw at the cinema, but I haven't been able to track down any Mars adverts that match that description.

So, do any of you lads remember this? Cheers.

I thought it would be nice to have a collection of our music for anyone needing cheering up. What do you lads suggest? Any reason why?


Across the Universe is my helpful reminder that whatever is bothering me doesn't really matter and I shouldn't let it. The song has actually helped me deliver projects before just by putting me into the right frame of mind for it and was a companion during a time when nothing was going right for me. The film is also a favourite with a similar message about life.

On February 12, 1983 the ship Marine Electric was carrying a load of coal from Norfolk, Virginia to a power station in Somerset, Massachusetts. The worst storm in forty years blew up that night and the ship sank at about four o'clock in the morning on February 13. The ship's chief mate, 59-year-old Robert M. "Bob" Cusick, was trapped under the deckhouse as the ship went down. His snorkeling experience helped him avoid panic and swim to the surface, but he had to spend the night alone, up to his neck in water, clinging to a partially deflated lifeboat, and in water barely above freezing and air much colder. Huge waves washed over him, and each time he was not sure that he would ever reach the surface again to breathe. Battling hypothermia, he was tempted to allow himself to fall unconscious and let go of the lifeboat. Just then he remembered the concluding stanzas of "The Mary Ellen Carter".

He started to sing it and soon was alternately shouting out "Rise again, rise again" and holding his breath as the waves washed over him. At seven o'clock that morning a Coast Guard helicopter spotted him and pulled him to safety. Only three men of the thirty-three who had been aboard survived the wreck. After his ordeal, Cusick wrote a letter to Stan Rogers telling him what had happened and how the song helped save his life. In response, Cusick was invited to attend what turned out to be the second-to-last concert Rogers ever performed. Cusick told his story in the documentary about Rogers, One Warm Line.

Young adults in England have scored among the lowest results in the industrialised world in international literacy and numeracy tests.

A major study by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) shows how England's 16 to 24-year-olds are falling behind their Asian and European counterparts. England is 22nd for literacy and 21st for numeracy out of 24 countries.

Unlike other developed countries, the study also showed that young people in England are no better at these tests than older people, in the 55 to 65 age range. When this is weighted with other factors, such as the socio-economic background of people taking the test, it shows that England is the only country in the survey where results are going backwards - with the older cohort better than the younger.

>Anyway, I don't think it is a problem of wealth. Growing up, my household was dirt poor, council-housed, and I used to get free school meals. My mother would make sure I had one hot meal a day at the very least, so I am not sure why these lot who decided to have kids can't do the same. They can't even potty train their kids. It is just ridiculous.

I think, for want of a better word, it's a question of pride. People of previous generations would be mortified and felt that shame was being brought upon their household if certain standards were upheld whereas there's an increasing number of people who are shameless and idle.

Who said anything about upsetting people? You were asked nicely not to post shitty Facebook memes, you posted more, were given a short ban for it, evaded it and went on to post more. What do you expect? We're not going to play silly bugger whack-a-mole with you all day. Clearly you felt the need to evade to post in that thread, so that thread has been removed.

Young people get it — hard work doesn’t pay

How old were you when you realised hard work and sacrifice weren’t worth it? Some realise it at retirement, when after a lifetime of indispensability and missed weekends to reach the prize — a powerful job — they are smoothly replaced and forgotten within a month or two. For others the revelation strikes later, perhaps ending up on one of those “top regrets of the dying” lists drawn up by palliative nurses. “I wish I hadn’t worked so hard” is always in there.

I think the general rule is that the penny drops some time in your fifties or sixties. Having spent your thirties and forties twitchily looking over your shoulder at your peers, trying to work out who is doing it right (the subtext, I can tell you, of many a tedious pub chat), it suddenly hits you. Most things are basically out of your control.

The philosophy driving Anglo-American economies — work like a maniac and you can achieve anything — is quite obviously untrue except for a lucky few. Everyone else can relax, become more fun to talk to, and maybe get into gardening. That’s a good lesson to learn in your sixties, with retirement on the way. But learn it much earlier than that and you have a problem.

Most of us have to work quite hard just to make a living, and the happiest workers buy into the idea that life is fair, it is all worth it and great rewards glitter just over the horizon. Without that romance and that spur, the daily grind just becomes more grinding. Those kids who could not wait for a marshmallow are of course in line for much less satisfying lives: the test predicts that they will fall in and out of work, even abuse drugs. The workplace is not set up for them. It works only for those who keep the faith.

Couldn't agree more.

Trouble is the middle class tend to see their self-interest as aligning with capital, not the proletariat. This country's ingrained snobbery always cancels out any logical assessment of one's position in society, and therefore vulnerability to economic impact. Our preconceptions of class obscure the fact that earning £35k a year as a junior manager in the office puts you roughly on the same wage level as an experienced mechanic, which is undoubtedly a povvo job for people who only did BTECs. The difference is the mechanic likely has far greater job security.

Essentially this is the main con-trick the Conservatives have exploited to secure their position in office for the last ten years. You're one of us, not one of them.

Does this assume that grandparents give directly to their grandchildren, or their parents pass the money through without skimming too much?
Setting your life up on the assumption of a future inheritance is weird. Waiting until your parents die to pay off your mortgage runs a hell of a risk of them dying broke or living for ages, and you holding a mortgage you can't pay or renew, just when you were hoping to relax a bit.
I wouldn't turn down an inheritance, but people bleating about inheritance tax can fuck off. Tax it like income.

I think inheritance tax is just a stupidity tax, as it's so fucking easy to get around. If your parents/grandparents have the sort of assets to make it an issue, they almost certainly have an accountant or money manager who has sorted it out for them anyway.

>Jeremy Clarkson Rejects Offer To Return To BBC After Asked By Director-General To “Come Home”

>“He was saying the other day, ‘Oh, come home’. But the truth is, you’d struggle on the BBC now. It’s so unbelievably right on. You just couldn’t say anything which I make my living from saying.” In the same interview, he accused the BBC of being very limited in their show production, and having a closed mind for new ideas. He also slated the BBC by stating that they’d freeze out presenters that aren’t politically correct.
>“I think it is becoming very, very restrictive, which is a shame, because it [the BBC] is a good idea,” he said.

Am I a cynic if I think he's just saying that because it's on-brand to bash the BBC for being PC, rather than because he's genuinely fearful his 'outrageous' popular-'unpopular'-opinion-but's might be censored by a snide intern with pink hair and a grudge against the jigaboo-gollywog minstrel jazz hour?

Like everything Clarkson, it's a bit of both. His public persona is just an extreme version of his private one, as far as I can tell. He's probably not the biggest fan of the BBC, but it fits his show persona and his newspaper opinion piece writing to call them communist totalitarians.

We only have his word for it this happened, and it was probably just some idle words of regret from his best mate over a pint, rather than a formal apology from the legal and disciplinary team and fullthroated cheer from the battered production crew. I don't think the BBC want him back.

What is the king of confectionery boxes?

I used to think it was Cadbury Roses, but I had some lately and they've greatly reduced the variety and quality of chocolates available. I've heard Cadbury have also done the same with Miniature Heroes; taking out Crunchie, Picnic, Time Out and Caramel with a nut in it (can't remember the proper name for this).

Quality Street? Celebrations?

Because the only reason these boxes exist at all is for the companies to shift the shit ones nobody likes by mixing them with the good ones people do like.

It's since the Kraft takeover that all these additional party flavours came out. 'Fruit and chopped nuts' are just the last grains from the bottom of the barrel, as are the crossover varieties which ingredients failed to pass quality control for the main products. It's good to reduce waste and all but to sell it as a new product at full price? disgraceful.
I rarely buy Cadburies nowadays. Kraft can suck a dick.

There was a Playstation called Eagle One : Harrier Jet or something like that, and I discovered that if you pulled back on the stick in flight to perform a loop, your controller would vibrate as heavily as it was capable of doing - do I'd hold the controller at the base of my knob and do and endless loop until completion. I must have been pretty young, though I remember the game well because of that. I reckon I'd get an associative erection if I saw gameplay footage now.

On a similar note, I remember a lad giving that vibrating controller that came with Rez (or perhaps it was a default Dualshock) to his missus. They wrote an extensive blog about using the game's rhythm-based shooting and subsequent VIBEZ for stimulation.

/g/27659 Streaming one PC to another.
How do I stream what's happening on one PC to another, whilst giving the second PC control of what I'm doing? I'm basically talking about a broader version of Steam's Remote Play technology, but one where I don't have to run Half-Life to use it. I've got a rubbish laptop and a quite snappy desktop, so it would be nice to be able to use the desktop around the house, so I can edit video files in the garden, call people names in the bath, that sort of thing.

I know this seems like quite a basic thing to figure out on my own, but I've been looking around and I just get conflicting search results about live streaming.

That's not true, the only guides for desktop streaming on Steam are for doing the exact same thing I talked about doing in my post. Feel free to show me where the desktop streaming option is on Steam, maybe I'm just being blind, but I can't see it in Steam's settings, broadcasting, profile.

This is exactly what I asked for in my OP so, err, thanks, I don't understand why you're trying to sound smug though. Plus, that's a Microsoft application and is therefore likely radiating a serious amount of black magic and I'm already running Windows 10 AND 8.1 on the laptop so I really don't need any more of that. I had to have my motherboard consecrated just stop the PC from attacking me in my sleep.

Well, I use the app on my Samsung TV. The app itself has a 'desktop' button but I find that doesn't work very well so I rarely use it.

I start up the app and connect to Steam - it starts in Big Picture mode. I minimise Big Picture mode and boom, there's the desktop, with full mouse and keyboard control.

How does your experience differ?

I tried the Big Picture Mode method but whenever I try to stream it from the PC I just get a pop-up telling me "Laptop is no longer available for streaming" and then it immediately reconnects. I have no idea why. I'm doing the exact same thing with my method anyway, I can use literally any application on my PC, it's really a moot point.

Yes, that's why we suggested both it and VNC. I have no idea why you ended up dicking around with Steam after that.
