/b/429948 Selling Vinyl
I've got a couple of hundred pounds of vinyl records, no interest in keeping them any longer, most which was purchased from charity shops, record shops I never went to again or given as a gift. Where exactly do I get rid of it? There are about half a dozen different options online and I can't say which is best, but I was thinking perhaps someone here could.

If you want to turn it into a fun day out, you could take your record collection to a record fair.

It's kind of more a niche thing these days for connaisseurs and enthusiasts, but it could be a good way to get rid of a few of your records, and meet interesting people in the process.

Back before the Internet and when music still came on physical formats, I went to those kinds of things regularly, mainly to find rare CDs that were out of print, or obscure one-hit wonders.

If you want the best price for it, Discogs. If you just want it out of the house, sell it as a job lot on eBay - a dealer or collector will happily buy your entire record collection, but obviously won't pay top dollar for it.

Not OP, but that would probably always leave me with the nagging thought in the back of my head that maybe I gave away some sort of rare collector's item for cheap which would really have been worth something.

In any case, it won't hurt to go through all those records one by one and check if there are some among them that could fetch a good price if sold separately. Collector's items that are sought after by true fans often look quite inconspicuous to the untrained eye.

Oh, I did that very thing earlier this afternoon, gave them little price tags everything, and a few of them could fetch quite a handsome price. It won't buy me solid gold socks or anything, but I'd be quite gutted if I'd sold them wholesale only to find out one or two cost that much on by themselves. Plus I really don't like record shops, I don't think I've been in one that didn't feel about as welcoming as a midnight stroll through a decidedly shady estate. As such I'm reluctant to support their continued renaissance.

I think I'll list them on Discogs, maybe do another listing somewhere like Gumtree so if anyone nearby wants any they can just come and get it.

There's a Monty Python one that's stuck together somehow, which Python would most believably have cummed in a vinyl sleeve do you think? I think might kind of backstory might be the only way to get any real money for it.

OP says he doesn't know much about cars; buying a write-off can be a minefield, even if it looks straight.


It looks tidy enough, but I'd want to see a service history before buying anything with that sort of mileage. 150k is a perfectly reasonable mileage for something that has been well looked after, but it could be on death's door if the owner's idea of routine maintenance is "take it to the garage when the grinding noises get unbearably loud". The assortment of stains on the upholstery aren't a great sign. It's also being sold on trade terms, so you're pretty much shit out of luck if it's a lemon.

Food on sets is a bit of a minefield. Strictly speaking, catering is the meals, and for some reason probably lost to history the stuff in between is "craft service". There's a definite pecking order for catering - talent, principals, senior crew, junior crew, background. Craft is a bit more variable, where sometimes you'll have separate spreads and sometimes everything will be laid out in one. BBC productions need to be mindful that they're handling public funds, so it's not a good look for them if extras who are in effect paying for the food don't get to eat it.

Would you say that private-television productions are more strict with their free food then?

I want to play my cards right if I ever want to start a side career as an unpaid extra.

Speaking of, whatever happened to those web sites where you can advertise your private car to production companies in the hope that they will hire it for a shoot? I put my old MkI Golf GTI on one of those sites back in the day, about ten years ago, but then that site suddenly just disappeared completely from the web and I never heard from them again. It didn't me cost anything to have my car listed with them, but still...

Why do I keep having dreams about witnessing a plane crash?

It's always a similar dream, I'm watching a plane flying overhead from the ground, and then I think, oh boy, this doesn't look good, and then the plane starts losing altitude and nose dives into the ground. Sometimes, I am only able to save myself from the falling plane or debris just by a hair's breadth.

Last night, I was watching a B-2 delta wing nuclear bomber dropping out of the sky and then cartwheeling across the ground, and it came to a screeching halt with one of the wings vertically sticking up in the air a good 50 feet. It almost looked like the ending of the movie Independence Day. And it again just narrowly missed me.

I'm nearly 40 and I've had this since i was about 12. I think it was caused by bad masturbation technique in which I'd tense up my kegel muscles to achieve quicker orgasm.

Cardio exercise would probably be your best bet. No harm in keeping on doing these reverse kegels, either, I suppose. But what you really want to do is give your lad a more adequate supply of juice. Definitely get on with a healthier diet too.

I always get a much more solid stonk on after a couple of days hard manual work. I'm not sure what can done about the muscle cramping but if you can boost your fitness in those other areas it might help overcome that altogether.

I've just moved into a new flat which, unlike every other place I've ever lived, has a hot water heater tank. The problem is, the hot water is essentially a trickle. I can't see a pressure gauge on the tank, and have no idea what the two controls on the right do (though they do have pressure markings).

Where do I begin to rectify this problem?

Cheers lads.

Don't mess about with pressure yet.

Is the pressure of the hot water a trickle everywhere in the house or just upstairs (if you have an upstairs)?

As a digression, how were you getting hot water elsewhere if not from the boiler? Central heating needs either a gas or ground source heat pump electric system.

Just one floor; everywhere. It takes over five minutes to fill the sink with hot water.

I'm not sure I understand the question. In my previous gaffs, it's been a gas-powered boiler that presents hot water on demand, and the same for the central heating system.

My current flat, however, has an (electrically, I suppose) heated hot water storage tank (as in the photo), and electric heater in each of the rooms. Not that they'll be needed, it's hotter than the surface of the sun in here. Top floor, innit.

Following my grandfathers death at the age of 81, I've been feeling remarkably low.

I am 'only' 27, however since his funeral I've been near-constantly considering my life. The inevitability of pain and death. I've been thinking how short it is really, and how I'm *twenty seven* years through it already. I feel like I'm old, like my life will pass me by in no time. This inevitability scares me, it depresses me, it makes me question how everybody on earth can seemingly just "get on with it" without lamenting these things. I don't know what to do, I feel fucking terrible. One day I will see people I love dearly die, or perhaps I'll die first. I can't enjoy my life any more. I feel sick to the stomach.

I wasn't particularly close to my grandfather, we were somewhat estranged. News of his death didn't immediately hit me. But I've felt like this following the funeral. I'm hoping the obvious cause of these feelings mean they have an expiry on them. This was the first relative of mine I've known to pass.

What you described in your second paragraph is entirely normal for someone who has just been made to face their own mortality properly for the first time.

Everybody dies. We all know this, but until that moment we don't fully appreciate it. That feeling will linger, and it'll come back at other funerals, but rarely will it be as intense as that first time. In the short term, it'll probably pass before too long. As the saying goes, this too shall pass.

I don't know what else to say other than that I've felt similar feelings but not as strongly after losing loved ones. You're a human being and grief is natural.

If he didn't mean anything to you, you wouldn't be hurting. I think there is some comfort to that. You were blessed to have that person in your life.

My grandad died when I was six. He was pretty young, maybe in his early sixties. Smoked like a chimney though, upwards of 60 a day. Not a surprise in the end.

I don't remember feeling much at the time, I was probably too young to have really understood. However I think having such an early experience of death and mortality has left an impression on me. I had several other elderly relatives die before I was even a teenager. The realisation that humans are remarkably short lived, in the greater scheme of things, has been with me since I was very young.

If anything I've always felt slightly guilty that I don't experience what most people do when a relative passes away. I don't grieve like you are supposed to and I feel bad for being such a cold hearted psychopath. So if anything, OP, be glad that you have those feelings. They are there for a reason, and almost everyone goes through it. It fades with time and it's something everyone has to learn from to truly appreciate the time they are alive.

The thing is, time does indeed go faster as I age, even if it's just perception.

I've been there. My ma died a few years ago. I think as if it was just about two years ago; nope, almost four already.
I didn't fix it. Was too busy with the meatspace stuff that accompanies the funeral and the aftermath. Didn't get my chance to hide somewhere and let it all pass through and out.
I wish I did. Repressing it didn't work, it just manifested in erratic behaviour, me not being me of sorts. A bit hysterical and overly excited at times (not my traits at all).

Perhaps drinking it out is not such a bad idea as it might seem at first. I'm not sure.

I can only console you with the banality that it gets easier with time. Or as one undertaker put it, 'Think what how you'd feel in two years'. Even if such thought feels like a blasphemy now.

Years before about the only thing I'd loathe to think about is my mother dying. Then it happened and I weathered it quite better than I would have expected to.
Interesting enough, .gs were there for me too.

/g/24391 Time to upgrade
My phone needs to be upgraded. I plan on buying a smart phone, but I don't want to be forking out all my hard earned cash on something super fancy. I'd rather have something more mid-range. But I have no idea what is good and what isn't. I've been using an old samsung for as long as I can remember, so far behind the times, I honestly don't know what to look for.

So I turn to you guys.

I want android.

I'd like to be able to play games and such on it, Fallout Shelter for example, emulators (a buddy of mine has GTA San Andreas on his phone, which would be a bonus)

A half decent camera would be a good touch too as I'm an artist and would love to be able to take quality photos of my work on my phone.

Are any of you lads a member of a trade union? How have you found it and does membership justify the cost?

I've been considering whether I should join my works one but, from speakers to members, it seems like they don't get a whole lot of benefit from what isn't an insignificant membership fee. In addition to this I'm looking at the union parties and they seem pretty disconnected to the day to day thoughts of their members. It reminds me of student union politics. I get that they will help you with employment disputes but I'm not sure how much that is worth.

It depends really.

I'm not part of the union at my work because I'm not a high up enough member of staff to have a horse in the race if it ever comes to redundancies or what have you. I'll just get another job and not really give a fuck.

If I was higher up I'd very definitely be in the union because I'd have a reason to care- Contract changes to on call pay recently come to mind. Doesn't affect me but they've basically managed to keep this deal where they get nearly as much in overtime as their basic wage, because the union keeps throwing a spanner in the works every time they try to change it.

Some stuff they are powerless to affect and don't try. Some people at my place piss and moan about how the union doesn't do anything for them, but that's because those people are expecting the union to do things the union isn't supposed to do. You don't get to just tell your boss you want to work 8-4 instead of 9-5 and then expect the union to back you up. Of course they won't, and you're off your rocker if you think they will.

TL;DR the more money and vested interest you have the more worthwhile it's being in the union. There's basically no point at all if you're at an entry level position in a given organisation.

Be aware that as a general policy, you won't be able to get help unless you are already a member at the time the dispute arises. In other words, you can't get into trouble and then join the union to get their help.

This may not be helpful, but I tend to join unions out of principle more than anything. Unions that are ineffectual tend to be that way because they're operating in industries with massive historical defeats, and a resulting lack money and support.

It can certainly be a bit of a sideshow with its own weird internal politics, but it's one way of lending a bit of weight to worker's rights in an otherwise authoritarian system of work.

Ironically, the times in my life where I could have most used a union, none were available because of the nature of the job. Temporary workers rarely join unions or stay around long enough to satisfactorily resolve disputes, so they've invariably been the ones with the most unreasonable conditions and miserable work environments.

Easily the strongest union I've ever paid into was when I was with the NHS. There's a few different choices, there, but the one I looked at seemed to really take care to resolve disputes and they actually had some credibility.

Okay fellas, I have no major problems going on in my life right now, in fact since January I've been doing pretty well.

That said, I've just gotten home from the gym and wanked for two hours straight, after telling myself I wouldn't do the same thing I did yesterday which was wank for two hours straight after work.

This is after wanking a shitload on the weekend as well.

It's fucking with my routine and making me squash my days. I like to have a wank to a sexual fantasy now and then, but fuck sake I hate doing it for two hours.

Just someone give me some support to not do this for the rest of the week.

Cheap whey powder is under £12 a kilo, which works out to about 1.5p per gram of protein.

Practically any vegetarian soup, stew or curry can be substantially bulked up with the addition of lentils, chick peas or kidney beans. They're high in protein, high in micronutrients, dirt cheap if you buy them dried and still bloody cheap if you buy them tinned from a discount supermarket.

If you don't have an Indian auntie restrain yourselves, lads, get on YouTube and learn the basics of Indian cooking. It really isn't hard to make a big pan of something fucking delicious. You'll need a decent stock of herbs and spices, but they're cheap as chips if you get them from an ethnic shop. If you're into bulk cooking, you can do yourself loads of little bags of dal and curry and eat generous thali for pennies a plate.

Failing that, just have some beans on toast with a fried egg and a bit of grated cheese.

Whey protein is pricey. Everything else depends where you live. Red split lentils are a decent shot. If you have a good veggie shop, learn the bargain. Eggs are ok-ish, meat only if cooking it is free. If you can buy a 5-10kg bag. Lasts ages, just needs a bit of flavour. 0.56p brown vinegar helps.

Bear in mind that buying food for four people does scale much better than for one, particularly if singlelad doesn't have a spacious freezer or well stocked storecupboard as most families do. ~£50 a month definitely isn't ridiculous for a single person, though you could certainly knock it down to about £30 before you start to get into the rice and beans territory.

Vegetarian lifter here. I used to eat a block of steamed tofu a with a tad of soy sauce every day, that's about 40g-50g of protein. At the moment I'm paying £2.25 for the decent (and firm) stuff, but I can probably get it cheaper elsewhere.

One of the UK's most high profile stock-pickers has suspended trading in his largest fund as rising numbers of investors ask for their money back. Neil Woodford said after "an increased level of redemptions", investors would not be allowed to "redeem, purchase or transfer shares" in the fund.

Investors have withdrawn about £560m from the fund over the past four weeks. However, it was a request from Kent County Council to withdraw £250m that led to the suspension.

At its peak, the Woodford Equity Income fund managed £10.2bn worth of assets, such as local authority pension funds. However, it now manages £3.7bn, according to the financial services and research firm Morningstar. Mr Woodford's firm, Woodford Investment Management, is also the biggest investor in Kier Group, the construction and services group which on Monday warned on profits, sending its shares crashing 41%.

"But he hasn't got anything on!" the whole town cried out at last. The Emperor shivered, for he suspected they were right. But he thought, "This procession has got to go on." So he walked more proudly than ever, as his noblemen held high the train that wasn't there at all.

Kevin McCloud at least should have recruited capable financial advisors to help with his scheme. You don't have to have a master's degree in business to be able to be the figurehead of a successful business venture. But if you don't have any training and experience in that field, it's of huge importance to surround yourself with the right people who do, and who can help you turn it into a success.

I've found this cool website that allows you to explore the economies of various countries, what's traded and with whom, etc.

'Product Space' is particularly interesting in that it shows how various industries are linked with other, sometimes suprising, industries. Almost like a roadmap of what's involved with what.

There's also this leaked document "Operation Yellowhammer", which details the apparent chaos to be faced during the early stages of WWIII. Jesus christ, reading over this makes it apparent just how vulnerable we'll be. I'm beginning to understand why it's taken so long to prepair.

All of this makes me wonder why a country would rely heavily on trade rather than produce a good deal of necessities itself. Maybe something's gone over my head but it seems like we've balanced that tradeoff between savings and security poorly.

Comparative advantage. If you as an individual had to be completely self-sufficient, you might just survive, but you'd eke out a very meagre existence. The same principle applies on a national level - it makes a great deal of sense for us to import food from places with lots of land and import manufactured goods from places with a lot of cheap labour, while exporting goods and services that benefit from our highly educated population and highly sophisticated economy.

This kind of trade has historically had a profound stabilising effect on international relations - you're far less likely to fuck with a country if it would disrupt a profitable trading relationship. You treat your customers with a level of courtesy that you wouldn't extend to strangers. Trade sanctions are a very severe but completely bloodless punishment for breaking international law.

Some issues are just inherently international. When Chernobyl blew up, Scottish farmers had to pour their milk down the drain. Back in the 70s, sulphur dioxide emissions from German and Eastern European coal smoke were destroying Scandinavian forests. If you were so inclined, you could really make life difficult for your international neighbours (or vice-versa) without ever declaring war. Trade policy is one of the levers the international community uses to resolve these issues.

Isolationism would definitely make us poorer and it'll probably make us less safe.

All of this.

Comparative advantage on a large scale is what drives international trade, but on a small scale it's why you call in trades rather than fixing every problem you have yourself.

An MP has been accused by a junior member of his staff of waging a persistent campaign of sexual harassment that has left her feeling “intimidated and degraded”.

Jared O’Mara sent a series of messages to the 20-year-old woman, often late at night or early in the morning, in which he repeatedly declared his feelings for her and commented on her appearance.

She claims that he also regularly made “sexist, whale poacheric and lewd comments” about other women including female politicians, creating an “increasingly toxic” environment in his office.
