Counter-terror police are investigating three packages containing explosives found at Heathrow Airport, London City Airport and Waterloo station.

The "small improvised explosive devices" were found in A4 postal bags, the Metropolitan Police said. The Met's Counter Terrorism Command is treating it as a "linked series" and "keeping an open mind regarding motives".

No-one has been hurt, the force added.

The Compass Centre in Heathrow's grounds was evacuated after a package was reported to police at about 09:55 GMT. The device set alight when staff opened the bag.

The IRA are up to their old tricks, the little scamps.

The mere fact I can buy Sativa CBD pills for my chronic (heh) joint paint nowadays means the amount of opiates I take is minimal, but it's an expensive game. I strongly suspect Phizer might put a stop to medicinal use on a large scale in this country, purely because it would interupt their monopoly on the pain relief market.

Now then stonerlads.

I used to smoke a fair bit of weed. Well, to be fair I still do compared to your average person, but I find that these days it's not doing anything good for me, besides bringing on a lot of anxiety. It's been increasingly difficult to get stoned without retreating into my own head and dwelling on unpleasant thoughts.

The obvious solution is "just don't smoke weed then" but honestly, I have practically stopped already. I have maybe a joint every few weeks now, long gone are the smoke weed erry day times. Throughout my early 20s I'd smoke a lot, but for the last three or four years my use has been declining as I find myself enjoying it less and less.

Trouble is I just kind of miss it, and in the social circles I'm a part of, people are much more enthusiastic about a smoking session than, say, going out to the pub. That in itself is a pretty shit situation, but I digress. How do I stop the anxiety getting on top of me and enjoy weed again lads. I've tried acquiring more indica based strains rather than sativa, but even those are pretty heady nowadays. Everyone's mental about this Jamaican girl starscout haze nonsense nowadays and I definitely need something more mellow.

Any of you had similar experience?

Somewhat yes. I got to a point of not really enjoying a smoke unless totally alone. Just toking with the GF brought on uncomfortable thinking and anxiety. After a couple of egged-on situations with mates where my experience quickly switched from the typical stoned fun to needing to be alone in a dark room, I figured weed wasn't suited for me any more and let it go. That was after best part of a decade being a regular, almost daily stoner.

You could consider experimenting with different administration routes - edibles, vapourising, solvent extracts.. "dabbing" is that what it’s called now? These all gave me quite varying experiences.

Perhaps it’s best to consider that, as difficult as it is to accept, for many people puffin’ da ‘erb long term does not seem to be that psychologically sustainable.

Back in my day it was all Thai stick and squidgy black, which in retrospect turned out to have THC/CBD ratios of close to 50/50. These days, even the supposedly high-CBD strains are more like 80/20, simply because of the insanely high level of THC. The most popular strain around my way seems to be lemon haze, which is a recipe for psychosis at ~19% THC and <0.1% CBD. You could mix in some CBD extract, I suppose.

Very sad news. It's home to many priceless artefacts and artworks, including woodwork that dates to the 13th century. It's believed to have started due to the current construction work.

If there's one small, silver lining, it's that we'll probably take extra precautions when renovating the House of Commons.

One of the worst things of commuting via the Tube is the smell. Cheap cologne, halitosis, sweat, rotting organic matter, I never got used to it. A couple of month ago I was on the Tube, sandwiched between a Polish worker smelling like rotting kielbasa and a British lady that tried to drown her revolting period smell with cologne, wondering whether to commit suicide or hope for a terrorist attack.

Then I noticed that the person in front of me had no smell. Nothing, no stink, no chemical odour, not even the fresh smell of somebody that just showered. Just nothing. I put on my glasses and started looking at him, and I noticed that he was sitting still as a stone, completely immobile, not reacting to any of the many "distractions" of the commute. He did not even flinch when a young member of the local fauna screamed at 60 decibel next to his ear.

I went on my commute, and forgot about him, but the next days I started noticing other people showing the same characteristics. My enhanced sense of smell, a curse on my life since childhood, allowed me to spot them, but I could not see any of them standing up, or interacting with anything in the coach. I managed to observe some peculiar facts, however:

They always travelled alone. I have never seen more than one of them in a train, except for a special occasion I will talk about later.
They never interacted with anyone or anything.
They never reacted to any phenomena, no matter how dangerous or unpleasant.
Their look and dress were unremarkable, so unremarkable that I had serious difficulties in keeping my gaze on them. A second of distraction was enough to forget about them until I was off the train.

We were in an underground depot, softly lit by neon tubes. The architecture was familiar, but every single flat surface was covered with drawings, tribal markings and abstract decorations. Probably those people had a deep phobia of solid colours or a bad case of colourblindness, since there was nothing painted in solid colour anywhere. The effect was garish, but not tasteless.

"There are only two rules here", said the Passenger without turning to face me: "First, do not move or talk, otherwise the locals will notice you."

The Passenger kept walking leisurely, and I found it extremely rude and arrogant. His voice was also buzzing and irritating, like a phone with bad reception. Thinking about phones, I took my Iphone out. No reception, obviously. Not even emergency calls.

"Second, you have only seven stops in each reality. The last stop will be a depot or something similar. If you stay on the train, you will switch to a different reality set."

I stopped to lean on the wall. That was too much, simply too much in a single moment. My brain had just shut down, I could not process anything anymore. My sense saved me again, this time I smelled saliva, sweat, the typical smell of red haired people and old blood. Especially blood. I raised my right knee and kicked hard and low on the back, a perfect back kick. My trainer would have been proud of me. I felt something fragile snap on the knee of my fellow Passenger, I dropped my backpack and stepped ahead to avoid any follow up attack. I turned around, ready to fight, but the fight already ended. My new friend was on the ground, rolled in a ball and clutching a shattered knee, his body thin and frail, his face a broad, squat, ugly mess with a mass of repulsive freckles and a broken nose.

"You sneaky bastard, coming from behind like that!", then I kicked it hard in the shoulder, I wanted to be sure to incapacitate it but I wanted some more answers before stomping him for good.

I reached her halfway on some stairs, she did not hear me until it was too late. She turned around and when she noticed me her eyes went round, her mouth and nostrils opening in a mixture of fear and disgust. I did not gave her time to scream. I pushed her down the stairs, hard. She fell down, trying to grab the handrail, but I hit her hard on the hand, then on the head, until she was half unconscious. I tied up her wrists with some electricians zip ties (perfect for this kind of things) and I raped her furiously. She was completely dry, and I had to struggle before I could get inside her. I ripped her dress, I punched her in her most vulnerable places, I did anything possible to get a reaction. She just laid down like a broken doll, looking at me with eyes full of disgust and piety.

When I finished I stood up, unsure on what to do. I gave in to my most bestial urges, but I did not get any pleasure from it. The lady just brought her hands to her ripped dress and took a ceremonial dagger out from a hidden pocket, then she slashed her own throat in a single movement. She could have killed me from the beginning, but she was already so defiled by my presence that she preferred to die.

That was the moment that my humanity dried up and died.

I walked to the platform and took the first train. Seven stops later, and I was in a different reality. In that world, people looked either Russians or Chinese, the coach was like something from the fifties, people smelled bad, drank, smoked and fought without any reason. In the week I spent there, I've seen more than two dozens of brawls and at least one homicide. That place was the first reality where I faced and killed a man in a (more or less) fair fight.

The following reality was even worse. Only my stab proof vest saved me, but it was ruined.

I tried to rest, to meditate, to clear my mind and soul (assuming that I still had it) before departing, and the next reality was less aggressive than that. In that place, people looked like Malay of Filipino, short, stocky, with the tired looks of hard workers. The carriages were incredibly crowded and filthy, but nobody took notice of me except for a local priest that threw some powdered spices at me. Maybe he was trying to exorcise me, in that case he failed.

I strangled him in the link between two carriages, I dumped his body out of the window and went back to my seat. In the following months I stalked and killed several people, I only stopped when the trains started to go empty and the travellers hired armed guards. I left a guard decapitated on a passengers seat, his unfired pistol still in his hand.

Fraudster Darren Carvill stole more than £250,000 from Strood employer Mr Clutch to blow on drugs and prostitutes

A miserable accounts worker – bullied by workmates – ripped off £250,000 from his bosses... and blew it on drugs and escort parties.

Lonely Darren Carvill stole the money while working for national car servicing company "Mr Clutch" at its head office in Strood. In two-days, the 38-year-old took more than £170,000 which he then spent on glamorous parties with high-class hookers and drugs. Carvill claimed that when he realised he would be caught he wanted to "go out with a bang".

What would you do with an embezzled a quarter of a million?

>The place where fraudsters always go wrong is what they spend the cash on. If I were so inclined to nick £170k from my employer, and actually managed it, the last thing I would spunk it on is hookers and blow - that's just asking to get caught.

Yes but what do you do with that money instead to keep a low profile. You can't really put it into a bank account without providing documentation as to where that money came from, you can't have it paid out to you in cash little by little and then travel abroad with a bag full of banknotes, for reasons including that customs will certainly not just let you enter a foreign country with that kind of money in cash without asking questions, and you also can't invest it in property, because you will also have to tell authorities where your £175K came from.

Blowing it all on drugs and hookers, and a few consumer goods, is actually the only way that you will get your money's worth out of it. And if you do it right, it's actually one of the best ways to keep a low profile and not let everybody know that you nicked a six-figure sum from somewhere.

Being a pimp requires more than money. Pimping is rent seeking, so they need to convince the prostitutes that some or all of what they earn is not theirs after all. Since pimping in the UK is illegal by itself, they can choose any legal or illegal means to do so, be it by charm or coercion. Some cash is great for projecting wealth and a promise of more, but it's like being at the top of a pyramid scheme: as long as the money keeps coming in you can dazzle the newcomers.

That's a fair whack, but not massive if you're running a business I suppose. Still, that'll be another headache for him if he truly is skint.

I've tried to follow this back and forth today and it seems 4chan's /asp/ has been reporting his Patreon for community violations, not because he streams per se, but because they think he is scamming with the donations. Apparently, someone offered to invest and it was quickly deleted and buried and now in classic 4chan style it's a big deal.

Their thinking is that a mark wanting in on the con would interfere with the con, so it was shut down, but I think it was probably deleted for linking funding 420chan with funding which would probably get him in trouble with Patreon and possibly WWE/UFC.

A few more interesting things will no doubt occur, but I'll leave the updates there. I hope he gets back on his feet and whatnot.

/emo/28349 Aphantasia: mind-blindness
Hi all. This is the first time I've ever posted in /emo/ since I'm becoming increasingly sure that I may have a condition that's been tentatively dubbed 'aphantasia'. This revelation has actually made me rather upset.

I feel I should stress from the outset that I'm not the sort of person who shops around for psychopathologies or neurological quirks, rashly concluding 'Aha! I must have that!' since it sounds interesting, or vaguely describes some of my behaviour in specific circumstances. I'm not prone to self-diagnosis and would describe myself as quite mentally healthy. But the description of this apparent condition sounds exactly like my ordinary life, and I can't imagine how wonderful the alternative is.

Basically the word 'aphantasia' means the inability to voluntarily create mental images. I don't have a 'mind's eye', I cannot form 'mental pictures'. All my life I have assumed those terms were metaphors for holding concepts and ideas in one's head. It is mind-boggling to me that other people can apparently form actual pictures in their minds that they can then look at, whether they're memories or daydreaming or the result of reading fiction.

I can't summon images of people I've known or places I've been. I can tell you if a picture of something I recognise looks wrong, but not by any form of internal comparison - I would just sort of know. I've had people say to me that the film representation of so-and-so or such-and-such looks wrong, and I've agreed, but not because I have ever been capable of imagining what they look like. I've always just remembered the words from the book, and noticed the disconnect onscreen.

Take a look at this BBC article on the subject:

One of the first sentences is 'Most people can readily conjure images inside their head - known as their mind's eye'. You have no idea how shocking that is to me, the way it's written so curtly and obviously. I never imagined that people other than savants could do this sort of thing at all. There's a semi-official test for aphantasia by a research group at the university of Exeter here:

You sound a bit like that guy who was awaiting a lung transport and got banned for being a grumpy cunt. (Although I kind of thought he had the right to be a grumpy cunt, considering.)

>Also, I do dream in images.
Ah, right. I was wondering about that.

I wonder if dreams are (therefore) a different part of the brain. Dreaming is like being plugged into the Matrix, it replaces your sensory function entirely, which isn't quite the same as conjuring mental images while fully conscious.

Ooh, interesting thought - if you dream and then wake up, you can't imagine what you were just seeing, even though it was a product of your imagination in the first place. Now that's some fuckery.

I can. Unless I really try and preserve it, the image fades quickly. In some memorable cases, I remember dreams from 15 years ago.

Racist chocolate ducks. What strange bastards we are.

To be honest, a lot of the issues with īncels stem from the fact that they've been mollycoddled by their parents and are used to having things handed on a plate to them so they struggle when they've got to start looking after themselves. If their parents could organise for them to lie in bed with a lass tied up in a bag then that'd solve some of their problems.

(A good day to you Sir!)

Here's the proper thread. To confuse future generations of .gs users I'm using this photo of his cat that was featured on the Guardian Live Blog.

From the sounds of it he was acting a bit of a tit within the embassy, playing footy indoors and arguing with staff, which didn't help, and while I'm sure he is a bit of a tit, I can't imagine keep sane being couped up like that for so long. However the US have leant on the Ecuadorians for some time now and this whole thing stinks. The shite Trump's coming out with about not knowing a thing about Wikileaks is on another level.

But you're not calling out a disability benefit fraud. You're seeing someone in a wheelchair and reflexively claiming without further evidence that their claim is a fraud. That's nothing to do with the particular instance at hand, it's straight up prejudice.

Any of you lads have any advice in regards to trading online? I'm a complete novice but I'm interested in it as a bit of a hobby and a way to earn a little bit of extra income. I know there are things like Trading 212 and Plus500 out there, but I'm not sure if they're worthwhile or a bit of a scam.

Any info on what to do and what not to do?

You're pretty much guaranteed to lose money.

If you want to make a few quid in your spare time, I'd suggest matched betting. By taking advantage of free bets offers from online bookmakers, you can reliably make a few grand. It's pretty tedious and you need to be careful to avoid expensive mistakes, but it is a genuinely profitable opportunity.

This. Also, be aware that gambling is, in general, rigged. The bookies can and will take you for a ride, but if you start winning too much they'll stop taking your money.

Oh man, don't even start. If you really want to, do about 2 years of reading first. And only use money you can afford to lose. But my professional advice is don't even start.

If you don't have any investments already, I'd recommend setting up a Vanguard S&S ISA and putting a bit of money in there. Their funds are a diverse mixture, so you don't need to do as much thinking. There's a UK personal finance subreddit which is much better at this than me.

I mean, that's if you want to save for a long time. Shove in a bit of money each month, assuming that it'll grow around 5%. For a novice, it does help you feel out your risk level (In 7 months, I've seen my money down 8% and up 14%).

Once you're a bit better read and you're more accustomed to the nature of investing, then you can jump into trading single shares, if you really must.

The logic goes like this; "if I have a dumb, melodramatic, overreaction to this popular film trailer then I might become a viral star and make some money". Look how red his eyes are at the beginning of the video, it's clearly not his first take. Maybe he has allergies, but to my mind he's just play-acting. He might even carry that on to his real life too, but I still don't buy that kind of emotion for a bland, tired, space romp like Star Wars. I suppose I don't understand either.

Nice to see he dressed up for the occasion, mind you. I mean come the fuck on, I go to bed in a nicer get up than that and I sleep in my underwear.
