I'm recovering from shoulder surgery and I'm looking for some exercises that will help rehabilitate me. Would this help?

* External or internal rotations, depending on where you're weakest (for most people who spend a lot of time at desks this is external rotation)
* Rear delt raises with light weight

It is possible to not, but it requires a drastic drop in calorie consumption. and when people give up on something, their first instict isn't to think 'better make sure I feel constantly hungry for the next month'.

Gaylads of britfa.gs, do "femboys" exist in real life, and if so, where does one find them? As far as I'm concerned they're basically unicorns, because in all my many years of megacity living, I've never seen one. I'm starting to think that I should start phasing them out of rotation in my wank bank, because I'll only set myself up for disappointment if I keep getting my rocks off to things that are so rare in reality, that they may as well be imaginary creatures. At least the fursona folk have their costume conventions and what have you.

Regards, someone who's only gay for femboys.

They're plentiful on OKCupid and Tinder, or at least they were back when I was in the dating game. I think on OKCupid you could search the keyword "trans" and it would pull a fair few up. There are probably more of them now.

See, I'm not the OP, but I can understand why trans is not the same as femboy, and it actually annoys me a bit that a lot of the time people seem to view them as interchangeable. I'm even convinced many lads who would make fine femboys get suckered in by the tranny agenda nowadays and become trans, more because it's what they think they should be doing, than because it actually is.

A trans person is, ultimately, a woman, they're going to do womanly things and act all womanly, because a woman is what they want to be. But a femboy isn't. A femboy is a boy, who's feminine. But they're still a boy.

They won't break down in tears after a blowjob because they have deep rooted cock mutilation fantasies they need carrying out in order to feel whole, basically. Trans people are another basket of cats, it's like the type of lad who enjoys dating mental council estate goth lasses- It's worth it sure, but it's a handful.

Anyway, fuck it, I'll stick to furry porn, where it's femboys all the way down.

Used to live with a femboy so I never really considered them rare. But now that you've mentioned it I think they lived a lifestyle of people considering them hot shit. Multiple partners. If they wanted rough anonymous sex they would fire up an adult worker account and take their pick of who wanted to pay them. They didn't need the money at all that just gave them what they wanted with no strings.

/b/438745 Of .gs and dot-coms: a memorial for the future
My mates were over on Saturday night. One of them used my phone to add some shit to the party playlist and noticed that I had /*/ open on my mobile's Chrome.

They both exclaimed about how they'd forgotten about this place and seemed humoured at the fact that it still existed in some dusty old corner of the web and more to the point that I still used it to chat shit with the same few faceless strangers. Joke's on them - we've got Discord and compulsory screen names now(!)

The gesture made me (possibly unreasonably) pensive. I cast a thought to the impromptu domain expiry of a few months back and how easily it was for those of us still visiting this shrine of yesteryear to lose touch with it entirely outside of direct IP access and/or signposting via other media. It reminded me of the countless other sites and networks that had come and gone during the web's golden age and how they have largely been refined to colloquial in-jokes and references uttered in increasingly smaller circles.

Bebo was bought out and sold to Amazon's Twitch last year after they outbid Discord for the rights.
Digg is now some bottom of the barrel clickbait site that nobody reads.
Livejournal, Xanga, and acrobat have gone the way of being overblown by the wave of in-your-face amateurish long-reads and social media formatting that has plagued Medium since its inception.
Myspace... exists.
What next and what will we remember of it?

To borrow a term from The Other Place, I suppose you could consider this the .gs "doomer" thread, though one of dead pixels and cleared gigabytes rather than apocalyptic neo-plagues.

Totse was my first home on the internet. It felt trangressive and exciting, but the people were nice and hanging out on IRC was fun. The community still sort of exists on zoklet.net, but it is definitely not the same.

I learned a lot about online interaction and really social interaction in general from that lot.

The queen mother supposedly once said 'I liked the old Labour Party. The best thing is a good old Tory government with a strong Labour opposition.'

You need a strong opposition to keep the government in check, whoever is in power. Maybe allowing an opposition barrister fucking up is fine, as it's just affecting their client, but allowing the government to fuck-up affects the whole country.

Honestly I have to wonder if a proper strong opposition is really realistic these days. A lot of the power of an opposition in the Westminster system seems to rest with people knowing when to do the honorable thing, backbenchers having a conscience, the government knowing when it looks bad in the commons, etc. If you've just got a bunch of nobodies totally loyal to the party and without an original idea in their heads, the government can just bulldoze their way through.
That is setting aside the opportunities that the opposition have to say things that'll make for good telly, but that's really the power of the media - not the opposition itself, and it often seems hamstrung by the media making like the parties and arguing over the politics rather than the procedure of the matter.

Maybe it's just hindsight, but that's always the impression I've gotten from looking at it historically. It's very strange to read about Thatcher nearly being brought down by some nonsense about helicopters, then put it side with all the stunts pulled by the last few governments.

Strongly recommend a book by Isabel Hardman - Why We Get The Wrong Politicians.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B079YGSCCZ/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8&btkr=1

She talks a lot about some of the things you refer to, and looks in depth at the problem; ie it isn't particular to oppositions, but why the place is probably full of the wrong people, and the issues it causes all of us.

Mr Danczuk described the warning that came after a vote in the House of Commons on Monday night when a senior Conservative MP “stepped out of the shadows” to confront him.

He said: “I’d never spoken to him before my life but he blocked my way and ushered me to one side.

“He warned me to think very carefully about what I was going to say the next day before the Home Affairs Select Committee when I’d be answering questions on child abuse.

“’I hear you’re about to challenge Lord Brittan about when he knew about child sex abuse,’ he said. ‘It wouldn’t be a wise move', he advised me. 'It was all put to bed a long time ago.’ He warned me I could even be responsible for his death.

“We looked at each other in silence for a second. I knew straight away he wasn’t telling me this out of concern or the man’s welfare. There was no compassion in his voice.

Writing in the Mail on Sunday, he added: “As politicians made their way out of Westminster, I had no doubt that other conversations like this were taking place.

“Indeed this was confirmed when I spoke to other members of the Select Committee the next day. They’d been paid similar visits. Phone calls had been made.”

> It's an incredible story, proper /boo/ shit.

Everything sounds like '/boo/ shit' until the truth outs and we realise it was under our noses all along.

I was going through this place's archives a while back and found a post from 2012 that basically said "Get back to /boo/, lad" in response to someone naming Prince Andrew as a Paedophile.

I have a book published in 2009 that calls out, explicitly as it can without actually committing libel, Jimmy Savile for having "a specially equipped ambulance that he uses to abuse the disabled".

Basically what I'm trying to say is that David Icke is right and the government is all lizards. Now I'm going to put my tinfoil back over my head before the mind rays get me.

I'm a new driver, and in the short time I've been driving I have noticed a particular class of other drivers who confuse me deeply, because they go 40mph in a 30 zone, but maintain that same 40mph once we're on a 60 road.

I can understand going slowly on a 60 road if you're scared of hitting something, but then why are they speeding in school zones? It's as though they think cars can only go one speed. I just can't make any sense of it, and it's not like I can pull them over and ask what the hell they're playing at.

Is it just me or do a lot of ordinary people struggle to drive in rain? I've always thought of it as just rain, the most harmless of driving conditions, beyond putting your lights on and braking a bit sooner. But people honestly seem to lose their minds when it's anything more than a drizzle.

The absolute shower of retards I had to endure on my way home from work today was something to behold. I had to swerve into another lane on the motorway because some dozy cow decided to full on pull out of the hard shoulder right in front of me. I had a bloke coming down one of the A roads fully veer over onto the other side and force me to slam on and blare my horn. I had some tosser parked up facing the wrong way on the one way road leading to my street, blocking the whole thing off.

I am beginning to suspect it''s some sort of omen that I shouldn't go out in the car for a few days, like Final Destination or something.

Depends on your reasoning I suppose. If it helps, 'm signed on and used to do care work and now understandably there's a lot of care work available. Unfortunately I'm staying with my parents for the time being who fall in the at risk higher age range, which I explained to the person who called me and that any other time I'd be happy to take such a job, but I'm not risking my parents health when care homes are nightmares right now. She seemed to understand and they haven't pushed anything since, that was a few weeks ago now.

While both are obviously clever and capable people, I think Sunak comes across as a bit more down-to-earth; I'm quite sure it's all a clever political trick, Sunak went to much posher school/university than Javid, but he somehow seems a bit friendlier is how I describe it. That poshness means he probably gets on a bit better with Boris.

Been chatting with this young American bird on the internet, we talk a lot on the phone, shared pictures, I knew it was just a bit of fun for her but I got attached because I've been completely friendless and lived alone for five years and have never really had any interest from any women, internet ones or otherwise, today she has a date in real life and I wished her well and all that but internally I am screaming, I knew full well I shouldn't let this happen but given the context I also knew it was inevitable that I would let myself get attached to some stupid idea out of desperation and now I can't handle it.

Fucks sake lads.

>consciously knowing it was a ridiculous thing to do

It is difficult to give advice, without sounding callous or harsh to you - and I certainly don't mean it to come across that way, but it probably will.

You both sought and got comfort from a situation that was never, or hardly ever going to resolve in a positive way. She is sharing the fact she "has a date" with you, for a reason - it's the long distance equivalent of a breakup. You were both doing it for "a bit of fun" and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

You're obviously capable of forming relationships, friendships with women - focus on that positive aspect. You've done it once, you'll do it again. With time, this pain will pass.

I'm having trouble at work because I can't seem to focus which leads to a backlog that only builds up making it worse. Tasks that are "do this by 2" are fine but larger projects requiring creativity have become challenging. Any tips on restoring and managing executive function?

The obvious solution is to take holiday so middle of next month I'm off for two weeks but what can I do to focus and survive until then?

It sounds like you need a bit of structure. Sit down, maybe with a colleague if needed, and get a bit of a plan in place. Doesn't have to be fancy with brilliant time estimates. Could just be some scribbles in a note book. But something to give you a rough idea of the shape of the project and what bits might depend on other bits.

In the software development world, something like Trello (free) is popular as a way of making little cards for things like this with columns to show status. (Until you decide it doesn't have enough features and you move to something else).

May I ask, without too many specifics, what kind of work do you do?

I have felt the same this year, as have many others I know. Definitely recommend taking a break - I am in the middle of my first two week holiday this year (!) and already feel about a hundred times better. I think a lot of people who have been working from home the past five months have also been putting the hours in and going very hard, and burnout is a real issue, as is general mental health on not seeing people in person. It is very difficult to be creative when you're in this space.

Talk to the people around you, particularly if you're under pressure - many of us are in the same boat.

You're right, there's definitely an improvement if I can sit down and go through exactly what I need to do.

We have a similar system at work for task management but I ended up resenting the idea that others can see what I'm doing. It feels quite unnatural for me where usually I like jumping through tasks as and when.

Creative stuff where I'm part translating reams of information into packages. Yeah, I was thinking back when I was writing OP that I really haven't taken any time off since Christmas because options are quite limited at the moment besides doing nothing.

There was and idea to use the bank holiday to get away and see an old mate but it looks the usual engineering works is going on. Maybe I will try and relax with a new game.

>besides doing nothing

But that's the important part - I have spent the past week dodging the rain and doing DIY around the house, reading, and mostly only using this computer and not the one that is about 1 metre to the left and hooked up to the work VPN - doing nothing is good. Games are good. Don't feel guilty about doing nothing, that is the literal definition of taking a break.

On the work and prioritisation stuff, I recommend a system called Getting Things Done - I don't use it all the time like a madman, but I do fall back on it when I get stressed or task-overloaded as you have described; there are other systems, but that one works for me - it's a book by David Allen and is used/taught by a lot of companies. It begins with a great big braindump, and I find that part very soothing when it all gets too much.

I bought Year of the Rabbit after this post >>23183. It's good but not Matt Berries best work in my opinion - probably because it's a comedy crime drama with an actual story arc, but some of the characters are a little grating too. At points Matt Berries telltale style doesn't fit well with the setting, but it's still worth a watch and i'll keep an eye out for series 2.

It was a mostly typical documentary with some text on slides at the end that sort of undermined the rest of it.

I try to be rational about it, note the ways that this thing did not live up to expectations, and think about whether this is just a fact of life, or if there's some other thing that might reach my expectations.

Maybe I'm wrong in my judgements, and accepting more of the former. Our resident Buddhists and nihilists will no doubt jump out of the woodwork to tell me that searching for more is wrong and will keep me forever unhappy, but that hasn't been my experience so far in life.

Prevention is cheaper than the cure, which is what the first reply here points out. I think it's the philosopher Seneca who best outlined how anger, disappointment and regret all stem from the same misalignment of expectation, and reality. The old truism of expecting the worst at all times is really quite hard to argue with, without resorting to sheer sentimentality.

The important question if you are already experiencing disappointment, however, is if you have you learned from it. Were your expectations realistic? If so, what went wrong? Can you apply that lesson next time, or is it out of your hands?

>>29966

It's not that searching for something to make you happy will never be fruitful, it's more that when you have found something to make you happy, the tendency is to simply want more. It's perfectly possible to find happiness, it's just never enough, hence paradoxically "unhappy" in the sense that you always have some new idea of happiness to chase that you don't currently posess.

I think wrapping your head around that is a very useful exercise in mindfulness, not in the wishy washy "well there's no point trying to achieve anything" sense, but in helping you to really view what you do have and what you could have a bit more objectively. I'm a hedonist, I don't resist nor see any inherent virtue in resisting the instinctive drive to seek pleasure. But I know when I'm going to make myself miserable by lusting after something that I'll never realistically have.

One of my exes had a massive fanny, not in a gaping cavernous wizard's sleeve kind of way, but more in a spacious, luxurious kind of way. It was like the practical volvo estate of fannies.

Only bird I've successfully fisted. I do happen to have a rather large chap, and it was actually very reassuring to be able to really go at her without holding back, like i have to with some lasses.

Downing Street has dismissed as “utter nonsense” claims that Boris Johnson is set to quit within six months due to continued ill-health from Covid-19.

No.10 sources ridiculed a report by The Times diary column that quoted Dominic Cummings’ father-in-law as suggesting that the prime minister was ready to step down because of the lingering effects of contracting the virus earlier this year.


Convenient!
