If anyone's interested, Voyager and TNG are continually playing at http://vaughnlive.tv/downlorrd .

Also general Star Trek thread, what do you think of the new movies? What setting would you want a new series to be in?

I respectfully disagree.

TOS - any episode with Harry Mudd

TNG - any episode with Lwaxana Troi

If I put Star Trek on and it's a Mudd episode or a Troi's Mum episode, I instantly switch channels.

I really like that character though. She's irritating but there's heart and purpose behind it.

And she's well fit.

Lwaxana even appears to fuck up a few DS9 episodes, though strangely the character seems to work slightly better in that setting.

Well, at least we can agree she felt better in DS9 where she served a purpose and had good chemistry. Much like the poster above you, I actually quite like her though. She feels like a real person, a big kid and hopeless romantic who is the stern silent types worst nightmare (Worf/Odo). I've known plenty of women like that, albeit it is the childless 30-50 something with unicorn shit all over the place.

I still think that it would've been better for Worf and Troi to end up together and for Mr. Woof to suffer an in-law who torments him but is good for his son. Worf in DS9 wasn't my cup of tea if I'm honest, he abandoned his kid and everything. What the fuck.

/news/19531 Porn Ban Binned (for a time)
https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2019/jun/20/uks-porn-age-verification-system-to-be-delayed-indefinitely

>The UK’s age-verification system for online pornography is expected to be delayed indefinitely, just weeks before it is due to be launched.

>A delay could see the issue of age verification fall under the responsibility of whoever wins the contest to be prime minister, such as the frontrunner Boris Johnson.

>The age block was due to be one of the first of its kind anywhere in the democratic world. Websites that refused to implement the checks face being blocked by UK internet service providers or having their access to payment services withdrawn.

>Age verification was first proposed in the run-up to the 2015 general election by Sajid Javid, when he was culture secretary in the coalition government. However, despite coming close to completion the government has struggled with the details of implementing the policy.

So no, otherlad, the porn ban is not for real. And I have to assume the use of "coming close close to completion" was not an incidental one by the Guardian.

There was something on the BBC News website the other day about how the Sex Offender Treatment Programme increases the rate of reoffending because it ends up normalising sexual assault and they all pick up pointers on how to get away with it next time.

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%.

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.

Neil Woodford’s stricken equity income fund to be shut down

Neil Woodford has been sacked from his flagship equity income fund which will now be liquidated, a further chapter in the downfall of the UK’s most high profile active fund manager.

Link Fund Solutions, the income fund’s authorised corporate director, said on Tuesday the fund would be wound up by its administrators, which follows its suspension in June. BlackRock and PJT, the investment bank, will be allocated two parcels of the assets to be sold.

Link said it had been unable to reposition the portfolio into sufficiently liquid assets, and that reopening it would risk a fresh suspension.

I think someone has been in my car last night, judging by the glovebox being open and things from there and the compartment next to the gearbox being on the floor. I suppose it was inevitable, having a car that tucks in the wing mirrors when it is locked and a scatterbrained girlfriend who doesn't always remember to lock the car. At least there was nothing for them worth pinching.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. Use the whole fucking length of the slip road.

Whether the traffic is at a standstill or moving at 70mph, the slip road is there to give you time to filter in without stopping and match the speed of the traffic, or if you absolutely have to stop when there's no space, move to the end of the slip road to make space for the cars behind you to queue (and get off the fucking roundabout too)

Had to use my horn twice in two days.
First was a campervan driver who pulling away mugging like he was looking in the side mirror but due to how he was parked all that would have shown them was the Gregs behind him - not me coming down the road he was pulling in to.
Second was someone who was driving down the road and then just slowed down to a complete stop. No hazard lights, no signs of looking to pull over - just stopped in the middle of the road with no apparent idea someone was behind them.

If we were the other place I would have posted the usual 'What I have / What I expected / What I got' strip.
I had thought it would be another 'tales from the operating suite' kind of book. It wasn't; turned out to be a memoir of some fellow on his path to becoming a neurosurgeon, interwoven with a guide on meditation.
Its official site calls it 'part memoir, part inspiration, part practical instruction'. I find this description fitting.

I am constantly angry. I think it's a response to stress, anxiety, and sometimes disappointment. I've put in non-stop effort towards some big goals. Very rarely, it pays off, but more often it doesn't.

Recently I've been so run down that I'm starting to get stomach cramps. A few weeks ago, I followed a car around a corner and down the road because it beeped at me at a pedestrian crossing. Honestly I just wanted to throttle the driver. I'm losing my sense of humour. I'm becoming very cold towards others, and I don't feel fit to socialise. Work colleagues have begun asking me if I'm okay. I've picked up an old habit of shouting in the shower, and occasionally when I'm trying to go to sleep.

I do already have physical outlets like exercise, but I have a habit of overdoing it, especially during frustrating periods. I already have minor shoulder and elbow injuries from these last few months. I also don't know if it's a good idea to continue piling on cortisol -- exercise is another form of stress after all.

I feel like I need to recover, and for someone to care. But no one does. This is all private, and people would think I'm crazy or unstable if I bring up how I'm really feeling. People only care about your external performance. And no one cares whether you succeed or fail, or the effort you're putting in. They only care about the finished package.

You remind me of my father. Numerous times he has chased down fellow drivers because of some percieved slight against him. He once broke a mans nose because that man made an innocent comment to my brother and me as children.

Just recently my father actually sped up into traffic at a junction so he could be angry that someone 'cut him up'. I tried to explain to him that his decision to drive so aggressively caused a rift between him and the passengers of the car and asked 'was it worth it - putting your families life in danger?'. His only responce was an agressive 'I was right'. It seems clear to me that's his only concern - being right. He carries a lifetime of regret on his shoulders; it's like the weight is a stand in for justice, as though carrying such a burden demands respect. It's as though if he can just get those little bits of order it'll justify the rock on his back.

I often wonder what do we actually get angry about? Is it the slight or the disrespect? Have i actually earned respect? Did i show respect while throttling that guy who dis-respected me? Just who actually am I to demand respect of strangers?

I think noone cares about your achievements and efforts, and nor should they - not because they're without value but because they simply don't know. That's why being cut up on the road should mean nothing; they're nameless faceless - just like you. High chances are that you wont recognise them. A strangers insult doesn't have to hurt. They don't even know your name. And this is cause for laughter, if only at the situation.

Unjust expression of anger only prolongs the agony - slamming doors and smashing glasses does not grant relief, you're just adding adrenaline to the equation. As insignificant as it sounds, channel that rage into closing the door gently with exact perpose in turning the knob and catching the latch. If nothing else it'll confuse whoever you're acting for (perhaps even yourself). When you feel the emotion begin to boil, breath calmly and count to ten - close your eyes if you have to.

Right, lads, I've been invited to interview for my job now but on the other side of the world.

It's a niche job so the demand for it outside of my immediate area is low and the chance to move to the other side of the world is even lower. My quality of life would be much higher and it's practically double my salary.

The interview is with the team I'd be joining and it's on Skype really late at night. How do I not cock this up?

If any of you have done anything similar before I'd appreciate advice on:
-How to not make ymself look like a weird twat on camera (what do I put in the background, do I still wear a full suit etc)?
-How do I make a good impression when other candidates will be there in person?
-Is it weird if I stay at work and do it and explain to them that it's because my home internet is shit?

Any advice welcome, I really fucking want this job.

>Blizzard bosses reduce gamer's ban and release prize money

>US gaming publisher Activision Blizzard has reversed its decision to withhold prize money from a player who expressed support for the Hong Kong protests. Professional gamer, Ng Wai "Blitzchung" Chung, said in Mandarin, "Liberate Hong Kong, revolution of our age," on a live broadcast after a tournament. He was banned for one year and said was told he would not get any prize money.

>In a new statement, the company said: "In hindsight, our process wasn't adequate, and we reacted too quickly." The hashtag #Blizzardboycott trended on Twitter after the 21-year-old was banned, and some players tried to delete their accounts in solidarity with "Blitzchung". Even some US politicians commented on Blizzard's initial decision.

It's fun seeing companies flop around in the face of Hong Kong protests after they've spent so long now kowtowing to Beijing. Who knows, maybe someone will question if having China so invested in our nuclear power plants might be a bad idea again.

It's not state enforced. Nobody cares. Sky News still has a feature on their front-page and still it's nowhere in the top most read stories.

I don't really think that's fair to say. They ran up English cricket scores against Russia and Samoa without conceding at all. Their undoing was Japan shocking Ireland, which put them at a four-point disadvantage in the first place.

I think this tournament has so far turned out even better than 2015, which I thought was the best in a long time. The crowds have definitely been getting their money's worth. Pools A and D in particular have been particularly heavy on action.

/news/20318 Thomas Cook collapses as last-ditch rescue talks fail
https://www.bbc.com/news/business-49791249

Thomas Cook has collapsed after last-minute negotiations aimed at saving the 178-year-old holiday firm failed.

The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) said the tour operator had "ceased trading with immediate effect".

It has also triggered the biggest ever peacetime repatriation, aimed at bringing more than 150,000 British holidaymakers home.

Peter Fankhauser, Thomas Cook's chief executive, said the firm's collapse was a "matter of profound regret".

Well it was 14 or 15 years ago. Maybe it was different then, or maybe I was just never made aware that I was entitled to compensation. Your link does state that the directive was only passed in 2004.

The link doesn't call it a directive, because a regulation is distinct from a directive, but they do erroneously suggest it came into force the same year it was passed.

Anyone grew up in England 😁 during a time when everyone treated each other like Family 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 going outside to play on streets, build dens and make tree swings 🌳, we got dirty, bathed 🛀🏻 on a Sunday we didn't eat fast food🍟🍔....we ate a sunday dinner...proper home made food 🍝 and chips cooked in a proper chip pan! we got ice cream 🍦from the ice cream van when my mum was flush, otherwise a choc ice from freezer. played rounders, climbing trees, jumping in ponds made bmx ramps in the street to see how many of my mates i could jump 🚲,garden hopping 🌳, kerby 🏐 , Hide and Seek🙈, british bulldog 🇬🇧🏃 and Ma

.There was no bottled water 💦 we drank water from the tap (bathroom tap at night)🚰 we shared the same bottle of pop... After we'd wiped it with our dirty sleeves, We only had kids tv after school 📺 we rode our bikes 🚲 for hours 🕰 There was no such thing as a mobile 📱 or any other electronic device 📵. If someone had a fight, that's exactly what it was... a fist fight👊. Kids didn't have guns🔫 or knives🔪.The street lights 💡were our curfew or until our mum shouted us. School was mandatory ✏️📒. We watched our mouths around our elders👴🏼👵🏼 because we knew we'd get a clip. Sayings like "What's for tea?" your guaranteed reply was shit and sugar“, where's me Mum" Run off with the milkman would be the answer. Nothing was too PC back then. Happy Days

Reminds me of this flaming pile of shit masquerading as the blurb of a "book":

"May 1974 our street was up for demolition and so we moved into a new house to a place called Flanshaw in Wakefield that seemed at the time a million miles from Thornes I remember moving in a rusty dusty old Tailors removal wagon that used to be based on Northgate Wakefield opposite the place the less well-off folk get married, anyway turns out we got a discount cos my brother worked there ! and sitting on the mattress Nan had died on months before we rode the journey to our new home, I felt at the time I was going on an adventure a mystery tour as looking out the back of the wagon I just remember seeing fluffy white clouds rolling by . And whilst sitting in the back of that old removal wagon slightly confused but also a feeling of excitement and anticipation emotions overcame me as I thought of Nan , And as fantastic as the times were at Wilson terrace listening to Nan's bedtime stories waking up to deep snow on the ground Christmas morning etc .and the playing out too the sailing on those home-made rafts on the frog pond By 99 archers at back of us I never knew then how much of an adventure I was about to embark upon or even what lay ahead for me , mix all that up and those thoughts of missing Nan cos she left us new years day 1974 a week after santa had brought my toys and you will get the picture the Tailor’s removal van suddenly screeched to a halt the brake noises slowly faded as the scruffy looking man driving opened the half shut shutters a warm sunny day, greeted me children scary children in my mind dressed in flares girls shouting and running around in the street skipping boys riding their tomahawk Budgie and chopper bikes popping wheelies! riding past me at speed Girls playing with their Cindy dolls crawling in and out of there plastic made Wendy houses on their front lawns making pretend cups of tea with colourful plastic cups and saucers ! neatly dressed and obviously proud mums talking over the garden gate to neighbours dads mowing their lawns under the summer sun . I sensed this was going to be quite an adventure"

Lorry drivers stuck in IIIWW traffic jams may cause rise in ‘dogging’

Ministers working hard to prepare for a no-deal IIIWW have been dogged by an unlikely new problem with 25 days to go. Officials planning to ease any congestion on the transport links to Dover have encountered the potential for an embarrassing issue: a rise in “dogging”.

At the Conservative Party conference last week, one member of the cabinet confessed that a side effect of increased congestion in Kent from stalled truck drivers would be an increase in the number of lorry drivers visiting voyeuristic sex sites in the Garden of England.

“One of the things we talk about in these no-deal meetings concerns hauliers and their activities,” the minister said. “The main thing is whether they will turn up at the Channel ports with the right paperwork. But there are also dogging hotspots all over the place.” Ministers believe the issue is more likely to flare up with British truckers. “Do Europeans even do dogging?” the minister asked. “There is something deeply British about dogging.”
