What you doing tonight? How are you seeing in the New Year?

I'm doing the sensible thing; staying in, getting drunk and shitposting - like every year.

Also, may I be the first to wish you both a Happy New Year.

I think I went to bed at about 11. As others have said, it's not a good night for going out.

Everyone on facebook is making big long posts about the last ten years and how they're all so happy. Seems a bit forced but it's probably not, I'm probably just being cynical. I won't make a post like that, so I'll do it here.

I'm feeling unexpectedly positive about the year ahead, despite recently becoming single again, which wasn't nearly as upsetting as I assumed it would be. If anything I feel more free to spend time doing things I've been wanting to do for a while. Might finally dip my toe into getting my PPL, will certainly be working more on cars, and I'll probably claw my way up the ladder at work too, though working is also no longer the desperate priority it has been for me for the last decade.

It's an odd feeling. Not contentment, more just acceptance that whatever happens, I can deal with it, and the quiet realisation that my life has been pretty fucking unpleasant for a few years, without me ever really noticing it until I changed some things.

Anyway, I sincerely hope you lot get something good out of the coming months too. Nothing, and I really mean nothing, has been a constant in my life more than this weird fucking website, and if you're reading this, you're part of that, and probably part of the reason I'm not dead. So cheers everyone.

It is though.

On facebook, everything always tends to be. And on most other forms of social media. There are studies now that watching other people present their lives on social media can make you feel depressed about the seeming insignificance of your own life.

One reason why I've never fully warmed up to social media as a whole.

You hit the nail on the head. I do feel quite sad that things have been so quite unpleasant for so long, but at the same time registering that it's over is giving me a good optimism. You're right about the permanence of this board too, cheers .gs!

I think what I thought they did wrong was that they had this choreography which would have been impressive, but because the CGI was so overboard it looked fake and you couldn't really appreciate it.

Overall I thought the film wasn't as bad as the critics said. The first hour was boring and aimless, but from the theatre cat song onwards I enjoyed it.

/fat/4883 Testosterone
Hi people

Asked my GP to test my testosterone, and I have the same level of a depressed 99 years old at 43. Spoke with my GP, he simply ignored me. I tried explaining that all the effects of having low test are making my life miserable, and he suggested me to take happy pills. I understand that a NHS GP is only concerned about bare survival, not quality of life, so I did not press the issue.

Is there any way to increase my testosterone? I am 43 years old, working as a network engineer. Very healthy homemade food, no cigs, no alcohol, no drugs. I used to play sports and lift a lot, but I let myself go in the last two years due to work problems. 1.70, 78 kg.

Part of it is people running youtube channels in this vein just need to keep a constant conveyor belt of guests to interview to keep getting videos out.
I've never really watched any of his videos but I would guess his approach to interviews is intentional. With good guests you can ask tough questions and you get good answers, but when you're interviewing the quacks and basketcases if you don't agree with them they become defensive and will never return for another video.

It was the same with Dave Asprey/Bulletproof. For every podcast with a guest whose work is based on good quality peer reviewed science, there would be two or three interviews with quacks with ideas like "you have to walk barefoot so waste electrons can flow out of you into the ground".

/g/27327 Apparently Javascript was invented to run toasters.
Does NoScript actually protect my computer from anything? The only real benefit i'm aware of is preventing all these embedded youtube links from requesting data.

Sometimes during a google search i'll see a brief view of the full site before noscript filters it back to basics.

It's interesting to see how many companies demand access through various sites. For example, I've never seen doubleclick.net on britfa.gs before - i guess it's coming through Youtube or something. It's like a giant web, all the internet must be covered.

To be honest i'm not even sure what a script is.

I use NoScript and once you've been using it a few months and whitelisted everywhere you visit regularly it really isn't that much of a pain as it is usually described. Yes when you visit a new site you will need to whitelist a whole bunch of other sites but it helps you understand what's going on under the hood, and it's a small price to pay to never be hijacked again by either someone trying to install malware, or the 'you are an idiot ha ha ha' pop ups.

I can see a pretty looking girl wearing a pair of whale skin breeches in my "liked you" section of Tinder. I don't have a paid account, but it's very obvious who this girl would be as not many people wear them in my area.

Yet I haven't come across her once in the actual swiping. Am I being baited into continuing to use the app by an algorithm that always keeps at least one "liked you" back?

I have had about £10k in Abundance for a couple of years.

They have been very professional, but the projects are not without risk: read the brochures before sticking money in.

There is also a little annoying how the returns are made available in dribs and drabs that require manual re-investment or withdrawal (and the withdrawal paperwork is a bother when using an ISA).

Would you say Christmas Turkey made into a soup and having spent 40 minutes out of the fridge in transport would still be good to eat? I had some made for me to get rid of the leftovers because I'm sick. Unfortunately I know what Christmas food poisoning is like and don't want to repeat the experience.

40 minutes out of the fridge? Fuck's sake, m8, get stuck in. That won't have made a damn of difference.

(I'm rolling the dysentery dice here today - roasting a turkey that had BBE of the 26th. Been in a cold fridge since, and didn't smell too bad. I'd be strongly advising against eating it, if asked on t'internet, but fuck it, I could stand to lose some weight, worst case.)

Okay might as well try and be polite and keep the oil out of the other megathreads.

Welcome to the motor one. In an attempt to actually get people to post in it, tell me about the car you really want and could feasibly afford. Right now I'm really thinking a lot about a big square 80s Merc as we've been talking about them. Even a Lada would be fun as fuck.

Audis are for people who think they're better than BMW drivers. They're the same people though, really.

The only way to avoid judgement is to drive a Nissan Micra.

I don't think I've talked about it here, as I think most people aren't a fan of them, but I've been having a lot of fun with my R53 Mini. A little supercharged nugget that handles much like a proper Mini, it really sticks to the road, and as hot hatches go, is pretty excellent. Drives like a mental 90s hatch, but has nice, modern BMW sourced amenities like stability control and heated seats.

Not too horrific to work on, everything is quite tight and stacked on top of each other in the engine bay but that's to be expected - it's not poor design as much as it is just not having the room to do otherwise.

Anyway, I bought it in March after selling my silly expensive car, with the goal being to run and enjoy a relatively cheap car while saving for the dream, a new GT-R. I've changed careers since then so that won't be happening for a while now I'm on entry level money again, so I'm happy that I've put the hours and the money into the Mini to make it run as well as it possibly can. Upgraded some bits and get 220bhp out of it.

The only real gripes with it are usual weird german things, like the decision to weld many of the underside bolts in to the car, which in 15 years in Britain, most have rusted to fuck and snap off when you try to remove the nuts, and the cabin plastics get a bit rattley. I'd be furious with this stuff if I'd bought it new, but I got it for a grand on ebay so I'm not that bothered that I have to weld new bolt threads on or pop rivet. The paint is knackered, but that's a good thing - life is too short to park at the far end of the car park for fear of dings and scratches.

The one major problem is that it's not a proper Mini, and every time I drive it I wish it was. My grandma had one, and actually loves my BMW mini, but despite having similar handling and a big speedo in the centre of the dash it's hardly the same.

Not sure why I felt the need to post this, have just been driving it a lot this week around twisty Yorkshire roads, and I've had a great time doing it. It's just a shame it looks the way it looks.

Yer, I dunno. I hear what you're saying about the BMW taxes that get added onto the car/servicing bills, but on balance I think I'd rather have a German mini than an original one.

You're probably right, and the only reasons I pine after the classic minis are because I've never owned one, and I'm a car bore who likes old vehicles. They're not exactly practical daily drivers though.

As for the BMW Minis, they're absolutely smashing little cars and I think they only really get flak because of the Mini badge. If they'd have called it a BMW 160S or something, I doubt there'd have been as many people complaining about them back in the day when they were released. They've kept the handling of a mini which is the most important thing, it really is like driving a go kart.

I'm only really talking about the first generation of Binis, though, it seems every time they refresh the lineup the cars get bigger, and presumably drive a lot less excitingly.

I don't think I'd recommend one, not an older one, to anyone who is unwilling or unable or unequipped to do the majority of work on it themselves - nothing is 'difficult' on the car, but there's quite a lot of little tweaks needed to keep them (the S models at least) going and it's just all squished in there, meaning that many of the parts need an hour or two of labour just to access, let alone service or replace, and it's the labour that can rack up a hefty bill at the mechanics.

To illustrate my point, here is what BMW call "front end service mode", which must be German for "whole front of the fucking car off mode". These cars were definitely designed to only ever be serviced by manufacturer, but I suppose that's true of just about every modern car.

Has anyone else noticed how annoying and empty a personality Stacey is? She has no interests, no agency, all she does is whine about things for Gavin to sort out.
Not that Gavin has much of a personality either, she just whines and he runs around trying to make her happy. They're both completely boring.

Yes. I think one of the essential premises of Gavin and Stacey is that they are not actually the main characters, at all.

Everyone else is.

Dunno but I saw the actress who plays her in Debenhams in Leeds about eight years ago and she looked well fit.

Huddersfield grooming gang jailed for abusing vulnerable girls

Twenty members of a “vile and wicked” grooming gang have been convicted of trafficking, drugging and raping vulnerable girls in a harrowing campaign of abuse across West Yorkshire. It can now be reported that the ringleader of the group, 35-year-old Amere Singh Dhaliwal, was jailed for life to serve a minimum of 18 years after being found guilty of 54 offences, including countless rapes of children.

Judge Geoffrey Marson QC said the crimes against 15 girls far exceeded anything he had previously seen. The gang’s “persistent and prolonged” offending, he said, was “at the top of the scale” of severity.

Details of the case, believed to be Britain’s single biggest grooming prosecution, can be disclosed after a judge agreed to lift reporting restrictions on Friday, following a legal challenge by media groups including the Guardian. One of the trials had previously almost collapsed when the anti-Islam activist Tommy Robinson filmed defendants in a live Facebook video outside Leeds crown court.

Jurors in the three trials heard how the men, mostly from Huddersfield, plied girls as young as 11 with alcohol and drugs before sexually abusing them in car parks, hotels, takeaways, snooker halls, on moors and by reservoirs across the region.

Fifteen severely vulnerable girls fell victim to the gang between 2004 and 2011. One girl, aged 11 or 12 at the time, was abducted from a care home and supplied ecstasy before being made to perform sex acts, Leeds crown court heard. Many of the victims described how they were plied with drink and drugs at house parties then raped “one by one” by the men, who used plastic bags as condoms.

Dhaliwal was at the heart of the group, who referred to each other using nicknames including “Dracula,” “Beastie” and “Chiller” in monikers that were used in the three trials.

The girls were deliberately targeted for their vulnerabilities. All had troubled home lives, including one whose mother was unable to care for her due to drink and drug addictions.

While it would probably be perfectly legal for me as a late 30s bloke to shag a 16 year old, albeit massively morally questionable, honestly I don't think I would if I had the chance. I'm not sure what exactly a 16 year old would be able to give me in bed. It was bad enough the first time around when I was 16 years old myself and had to deal with all the adolescent teenlass drama of trying to get someone like that in bed. I don't think it's something I'd want to go through again. Also, a 16 year old will not have had her cherry popped that long ago, so the amount of sexual experience she will have will be fairly limited. I think you have to be at least borderline paedo if that kind of thing is something you actively pursue. At my age anyway.

I dunno, if the opportunity arose I might, just because I didn't get any as a teenager and want to see what it's like to do it at that age.

You can shoot your muck and be ready to go for round two about ten minutes later. When you're older you have a much longer refractory period so you only get one shot to give a good performance.

On the other hand, I think I remember reading something that women reach the height of their horniness around age 24 or thereabouts. Which I think I can kind of confirm. The 16- or 17-year-olds I had sex with as a teenlad seemed to "need it" significantly less than some women I dated years later who were in their mid-20s.

Maybe 20something women are just more secure in themselves and have an easier time just letting themselves go during sex, but I think one factor is also that a woman's estrogen levels are at their highest some time around age 18 to 20. Estrogen tends to dampen sexual desire also in women. And then when you throw hormonal contraceptives into the mix, it's plausible that as a general rule, the best sex you will have with a woman will not be when she's 17, but when she's in her mid-20s. Also, by that time, they will be more experienced, which means they won't give you a handjob that will feel like they're sanding down a chair leg.

>Our band was an emo (post hard-core really but whatever)

Well, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt in that case, if your were in on that scene in the mid 2000s you were sat on top of the proverbial well. I was in a metal band around that time, albeit the kind of Trivium/A7X type shite lasses still listened to, but they were hardly throwing themselves at us.

I'm surprised nobody has ever accused Oli Sykes of being a pedo. I met him once and he was a right bellend. He definitely seemed like the type.

Most of my shagging since then has been achieved by having long hair and a profile picture of me playing a gig, though. Thankfully you can check people's age on Tinder and the like, but even then, I've literally had birds saying things like "I'm really 17 but I lied so I could sign up". In a lot of cases, I think being with an older bloke is desirable to them- Obviously they'll regret it horribly later in life, and it's any bloke's duty to leave well alone, but nevertheless.

Honestly though I don't think there's any kind of age to shaggability correlation. If my experience has taught me one thing, it's that slightly chubby (but not outright fat) ones are always the best. The ones who know they've got a cracking arse, but just enough of a muffin top to feel insecure about it, are the sweet spot. It's like the horseshoe theory.
