This doesn't strike me as particularly accurate, I can't imagine where in the production cycle of a burger all that water comes in, and the site on the image has absolutely no information backing it up, other than vague graphs. Is this just how much water a cow drinks?

How are they arriving at these figures? My assumption is that they're fudging something somewhere.

>There's a limited natural supply of fresh water

No there isn't. It falls from the fucking sky. There might be a limit in the rate it falls, but effectively the supply is infinite. Also there is the quite obvious detail that the water that is drunk drink is breathed, sweated and pissed out again so it isn't like it is being removed from the system.

>There might be a limit in the rate it falls

Which is exactly the limiting factor. If you use water faster than it falls from the sky, you've got a drought. We can speed up the water cycle with desalination, but it's a lot more expensive than water conservation.


>The UK doesn't have a major water problem

Not yet, but there are some very real concerns about localised drought due to climate change. We've made big gains over recent years in reducing leakage, but we're approaching the point of diminishing returns. Thames Water already operate a desalination plant at Beckton; it's only used intermittently and processes brackish water, but it does indicate the relative insecurity of water supplies in the south east.

/emo/27047 Where to meet birds
So, I've decided to try and not be that guy, a relationship-less virgin, into my mid-20s, which doesn't leave me with very long. I'm home from uni for the summer and have decided it's time to sort my act out.

The only problem - where to meet women?

I've completed tinder in a 15 mile radius, likewise for Bumble - zero (0) matches. I've messaged pretty much every girl on OKCupid with a match >75%; not one has replied.

What can I do now? The few local schoolfriends I am still in contact with are all male, everyone at my job is male, and all the women I talk to (from uni) are either in a relationship or otherwise not an option.

Going out to clubs doesn't work because a) I don't have anyone to go with, and b) when I try and do anything but stand at the bar drinking in a club (ie dance) I look like a tortoise trying to pilot a motorcycle.

Any ideas?

>I'm at the age now where most people can read the cues

An awful lot of people can't, they just kid themselves that they can, hence the epidemic of sexual harassment. The world is full of adult men who genuinely think that "nice tits" is an acceptable chat-up line or that following a stranger in the street is an acceptable seduction technique - if you don't believe me, ask any woman. You might be inexperienced, but you're not a literal monster, which puts you well ahead of a lot of people.

>I just don't know *how* to change, though. Surely you gain confidence through success?

You can also gain confidence through acceptance of failure. You can't just decide not to be scared of something, but you can gradually train yourself out of that fear by willingly exposing yourself to it. You can say to yourself "I'm going to try things, I'm going to make a tit of myself sometimes, it's going to feel bloody awful, but I'm going to keep trying regardless". The fear never disappears completely, but it does get smaller and quieter and less important. Slowly but surely, you retrain your subconscious to recognise that the pain of rejection is much more tolerable than the pain of not even trying.

>>27628 42. She asked nicely, we were working together.
I'm not an utter freak, just never put any effort in, and had plenty of other things to be getting on with. A tendency towards hard drinking meant that, on ending up in bed with people, was never in a fit state to do anything about it.
I probably regret not saying yes earlier when friends set me up, since sex is quite fun, but other than that, nah, this is me and that's ok. I suspect that I'd have ended up married rather earlier if things had gone another way - and probably done the kids thing, so life would have turned out rather different.
For what it's worth - no particular difference before and after. Maybe a sense of relief that girl-I-like wasn't repulsed and seemed to quite enjoy it too.
I doubt this helps any - but there you go.

Met this amazing Swiss girl at a conference last year, we hit it off. Get some drinks with a group, chatting up a storm, had a lot of fun together.

A few months ago I apply to a job in Switzerland and contact her out of the blue to tell her my plans. She sends lots of excited messages about the prospect of seeing me again, saying how much fun we'll have, offering to show me the city, she even offers to let me stay with her if I need somewhere while I look for a flat.

I get the job, she's over the moon. We call and talk a couple of times on the phone.

Today she casually mentions her boyfriend in Basel.

It does read a bit more sneery than I intended. I think it's just that I don't have any interest in a girl who's clearly already in a bit of a romantic bind as it is. And to be honest open relationships are of no interest to me anyway.

I think I'm mostly just amazed that you have the tact to know that that's the only appropriate response you can give to someone sharing their "we tried to open up the relationship but it turns out separating sex and love in a culture built on conflation of the two is actually somewhat hard" story. It's the line I use whenever my poly mates are bitching at me about someone not returning their crush on them or some other similarly devastating blow to their wholly self-centred worldview, sometimes I mix it up a bit with "ah, that does sound a bit tricky". At the risk of sounding like an embittered monogamist (which I already was by my first sentence in this post), I've yet to encounter anyone involved in open relationships or poly-ism who doesn't behave like an absolute fucking child when it comes to their romantic entanglements.

I wish I met more like that, at the very least it isn't borning, my experiance has nearly been largely of people behaving in a clinical detatched and dull manner that robs any thrill from the experiance.

Me and the misses are in a very comfortable open relationship. In theory we have total freedom, in reality we know we love each other and trust the other and are quite open with each other, so there is no insecurity or bullshit between us.

I'm willing to believe that there are happily ensconced poly types, like those couples who discover a swinger's club well into their 60s and spend their retirements at key parties, but - and here is the crucial thing - they usually have other hobbies like their allotments or geocaching which they will gladly blather on at length about first and keep their sexual escapades to themselves. Whereas the unhappy ones, who are subject to all that jealousy and petty infighting and seem to all be in their 20s, will tell you about that defining aspect of themselves first and foremost.

Fuck it, I've come up with a new rule for my grumpy old man dictatorship that I believe will solve all of this: you're only allowed to be poly-anything if you're drawing your pension and know in detail how to solve a whitefly infestation on your brassicas.

Did I get banned too? I cited the incident where a KOMO news helicopter took off from its rooftop landing pad in Seattle in 2014 and instantly nosedived, and it lead to a Fox affiliate news station accidentally showing a cock photo on air, which gave the story way more coverage. I added a link to the Str8UpGayPorn blog story about it, hit post, and went to look at another website.

Zenit St Petersburg have condemned star striker Alexander Kokorin, who faces criminal prosecution for hitting a government official with a chair in a Moscow café.

Russia international Kokorin, together with Krasnodar midfielder Pavel Mamaev, was captured on security cameras attacking the man as he ate breakfast at a table in the corner of the room. The pair were behaving rowdily and café employees thought they were drunk and had taken drugs, according to a report by Russian daily newspaper Gazeta.

Gazeta also reported that two high-ranking government officials ended up in hospital as a result of the attack, with one losing a tooth, and Moscow police are investigating.

What the British press haven't covered is that the minister they struck with the chair is ethnically Korean and they were singing Gangnam Style when they attacked him.

Not being funny, but if you actually set out to shout through a megaphone how much you want to gas others and imply that it's a promise, the powers that be will take you as seriously as you want. You can fuck about in court insisting "oh it was only roleplay" as much as you want (as those twats have), fact of the matter is there will be a bigger price to pay if a looney does go out and fulfil that promise of killing someone they perceive to be the enemy.

Quite proud of the Telegraph (not often I utter that) for exploiting the Streisand effect so well. Surprised there isn't a thread yet.

/lit/6825 The 48 Laws of Power
I'm vaguely intrigued by this book although I haven't finished it yet. Is there an argumentative criticism of it anywhere?
Some stuff in it I've witnessed myself, several points contradict other 'advice' in this book - which I find a bit ironic but I always can rationalise that different situations require different approaches - and some just feel contrived and overboard. Perhaps not at Hollywood though.
It seems to have attracted a noticeable following within the alt-right circles which is... well, curious.

Can the federation replicate latinum or do the space jews somehow make it un-replicatable?

That energy has to come from somewhere, it's probably a net loss to replicate it.

In my headcanon replicators can't replicate any elements heavier than iron, since anything heavier than that requires more energy to fuse than is released by its fusion. That's why it's possible to replicate food, but not, say, entire starships. Starships utilise heavier elements.

Chakotay replicates Janeway a Pocket Watch for her birthday in the End of Time special and she chastises him for wasting power. It can be done, it's just greedy on the dilithium and at that time they were on rations which I think he saved up and spunked all at once.

What is interesting is that you can recycle replicated items, but I don't know what the loss conversion is. There will be a loss, that much is obvious. The Star Trek Encyclopaedia would probably know.

The gold in gold-pressed latinum is frequently referred to as "worthless" in DS9, so replicators are clearly capable of producing heavy elements economically. I assume that there's some kind of quantum handwaving that makes latinum uniquely difficult to replicate.


Voyager is a bit of an edge case, because they're stranded light years from Federation territory. Within the Federation (even on the outer edges), it seems that most things are negligibly cheap - in Explorers (DS9 S03E22), Sisko and Jake built a Runabout-sized starship for shits and giggles.

/emo/27574 To the alcoholic who started a thread earlier and then deleted it
I wrote this, and I hope you get to see it. It's not too late to change course. Hope you figure it out, anyway.

>Am I one of those people that should go to AA?
>I'm definitely a high functioning alcoholic
I'm not saying AA is right for you, but if someone very close to you is literally saying that they can't live with you drinking as much as you do then that should be a massive wake-up call. It sounds like you're not yet at the bottom of the barrel, which is good, because when you get there you won't ever get out in one piece. You need to understand that nobody ever experiences a major addiction without losing a part of themselves. Some people cover it up and it just stays with them as a hidden scar, something they deal with on a daily basis but which you wouldn't know without them telling you. For others it remains apparent to anyone who meets them. I would give anything to take away the lasting damage that my earlier alcoholism did to my self-esteem and self-worth. I would toss away every last drunken experience, every association I made at the pub, all of it, just to go back to a time when I was not afraid of my own mind.

>it's who I am
Bullshit. You weren't born an alcoholic and you are not defined by alcohol consumption. Addicts tell themselves things like this in order to justify not quitting. It's true that life will be different (likely better, though I know you won't believe that now), but you need to cut this lie out of your addiction's play book.

There are a bunch more things I could say, but since you didn't say how many units a week you're on (have you even asked this yourself? ), it's hard to say how serious a problem this is. I doubt you'd be posting this here if this was really was just three pints a night, but it's possible. Your girlfriend may be overreacting, and you probably think I'm doing the same. How about this: in order to prove me and her wrong, live your life as normal for a week, but just don't drink. If you sleep like a bairn and don't miss it much, then you're probably alright for now. Either way, though, start counting units. If you're putting away 6 or more units per night, every night, then liver damage is not so much a question of "if" as "when".

/fat/3936 Fat bastard weight loss thread
Get in here fatlads.

I've made an effort to properly lose weight but have stalled in the last 2 months - and it's starting to creep up. I used to lift weights 3x/week and control the diet, but I can't lift for a while until some medical stuff gets sorted. This has taken a bit of a hit on my progress - or more likely,ive used it an excuse to slack.

What's your story?

P.s. I track calories and weight using my fitness pal.

Mate is that a RHR taken when you're sitting in bed after waking up after a good night's kip or a "RHR" taken at fuck knows when after a day of caffeine, commuting, steak fucking bakes and god knows what else?

No one should be waking up with a RHR of 90 unless you're really making waves as a next generation pharmacological power user / using K Cider as your bedtime tipple or have some kind of serious heart issue. (Obviously I fucking hope it's not the second one as you haven't mentioned anything of that kind but Jesus lad, if your RHR is 90 standing up and going to the fridge is basically sending you into tachycardia. Go see a fucking doctor, sharpish).

It's from actual rest.

>Go see a fucking doctor

I've seen plenty of doctors. It's fine, apparently. It's definitely about 90. Blood pressure is great, too. Post surgery a few years ago I was sat at 125 while lying in bed, and also on morphine. (no, really) They were checking my vitals every hour or so and did a couple of EKGs and nobody was particularly concerned. I was pretty fucking concerned, to be honest, but I was told it was high but not unusual, especially considering my normal RHR was already high.

I haven't done drugs in about six years and I don't drink, or have anxiety or a bad heart or anything. I'm 'healthy but a bit odd' according to medical professionals.

Well if you've done echos and EKGs and a treadmill stress test and nothing worrying came up who's a random prick on the internets to say otherwise? Cholesterol and blood pressure being good is good news, maybe get your triglycerides and most importantly your homocysteine levels checked (just badger your gp until they sign the damn bloodwork papers).

If those all check out then I guess your ticker just likes to tick a little bit faster than normal.

I've been back to eating refined carbs for a few weeks after losing 15kg on four months of keto and it's staggering how hungry I feel all the time now.

I'm going go to back to keto and investigate a cyclic keto diet so I can binge drink on the weekends. I never really missed carby food when I was on the diet but I did miss beer, so maybe I can have my cake and eat it too.

I want to follow boxing like I used to long ago, but it seems most fights are bought up by SkySports and a number of other channels I don't have.

Any creative ways that I can still watch? Failing that, what's the best magazine/website to get into the habit of going to?

He is alright, would buy him a pint and a curry, but he is just daft. He gave the mouth foaming mob a stick to beat him with and the other mouth foaming mob a champion of their "values" by equating homosexuality and paedophilia.

He is a great boxer, but any fight that isn't in Las Vegas will be marred by fights in the crowds as other Travellers set up matches of their own for the event.
