I think shopping at Lidl and Aldi is the ultimate intelligence test.

>- The ones that try to pack everything at the till and do so extremely slowly. holding everyone else up like the selfish cunts they are.

This irritates me whenever it happens, it's worse that the checkout instructions are on a massive fucking banner behind them and the checkout is designed so that you do not have room to pack properly yet you have these literal brainlets are so ignorant that they completely ignore it and take 3-4 minutes.

You can see the checkout person calling them a cunt with their eyes staring at them, unable to say anything. The one time I told one of these mouth breathers trying to pack a literal full trolleys worth of shopping into bags that the instructions were behind them they looked up at it and then kept doing what they were doing. Ignorant, selfish cunts.

Nandos getting a lot of hate consistently, why?

It's no fine dining but if you want something where you know you don't need to book, know you can turn up casually, quickly run off when you're done because you've already paid and want some relatively tasty chicken with a selection of easy going sides I don't see the problem to the extent everybody else does.

Yes there are lots of teenagers in there eating on first dates but it probably suits their budget and level fo relaxation.

Millennials throw away 633 meals a year because they don't know how to reheat leftovers

Millennials throw away 633 meals a year because they don't know how to reheat leftovers. Those who took part in the poll said they would rather bin food than re-heat it, admitting good food is going to waste.

Researchers found the amount of food millenials confessed to throwing away adds up to more than 1,700lbs. The poll, conducted by cookware brand Pyrex, found millennials - aged 18 to 34 - waste more than three times as much as people aged above 34 who throw out the equivalent of just 186 plates of a food a year - 225 kilograms or 493 lbs. And the millennial food waste mountain is more than double the average food waste in the UK of 300 plates of food - just over 800 lbs per household.

Almost a quarter of millennials (23%) admitted they do not know how to deal with leftovers. By comparison just six per cent of people aged over 55 said they did not know what to do with leftover food.

A further 18 per cent of millennials said they eat out instead of eating the food they have at home leading to even more waste. Just four per cent of those aged over 55 said the same.

A fifth of millennials (21%) said they create yet more waste because they get bored eating what they already have at home compared to just seven per cent of those aged over 55. One of the other main reasons good food is thrown out is because 38 per cent of people fear they will get sick if they eat it after its 'best by' date.

How is there not a thousand post long /101/ thread on these fuckers yet.

I'm currently having the privileged of negotiating a letting contract with them. Which they are insistent they cannot change. But it doesn't matter that my wishes for use of the property and that I informed them of originally are contradictory with because 'they just won't enforce that bit it's just legally required we put that in there' (it isn't).

This is a deal on a property where we should be moving in in 4 days they gave us the 40 page contract last night and insisted we should be signing by the end of the night that makes reference to agreeing we have seen documents they are yet to provided us with.

Oh yes and they want £150 of fees for providing this standardized contract that they seem incapable of understanding amending, or are being deliberately obtuse as to the implications of 12 months down the line and about £500 more just because.

Depends - a specific third-party maintenance company who is involved in the maintenance of the building you're in - yes it is. Under GDPR this would qualify as "performance of a contract".

To a bunch of non-specific third-parties who then sell/market to you, no it is not.

...It is important to state that it is not communities that commit crimes but individuals. Those convicted are squarely Henry Long, Albert Bowers and Jessie Cole, not thousands of innocent people who share their heritage. Tarring all Travellers with the brush of these men’s callousness is as unfair as tarring all Catholics for paedophile priests or all eskimos for daft militant wog attacks.

Yet to completely ignore the cultural context of this crime is wrong. Henry Long, the ringleader, was removed from school at the age of 12; he followed his father and grandfather into the thieving “trade”. Albert Bowers left school at 11 and before the trial had already picked up three youth convictions. These young men could not read or write. For years they had not known school or structure. Their education was in petty crime.

Such problems do not solely beset Travellers but they are far more prevalent among Traveller communities. If we want to be a country where all are treated the same, where all live by the same rules and where the state does its best to furnish each with a decent chance in life, we have to end the squeamishness that prevents open talk about Travellers. This squeamishness is down to two fears. First, the fear of retribution. After the verdict on PC Harper’s death it emerged that the judge, Mr Justice Edis, brought the first trial to a temporary halt over an alleged potential plot to intimidate jurors. Extra security measures were brought in. Jurors were referred to by number not name. One juror was dismissed for acting oddly in court, mouthing pleasantries at the defendants. Whether she was motivated by misplaced friendliness or fear of someone up in that public gallery we do not know, but most will not be shocked by revelations of intimidation.

The fear of the bullet, the knife, the burnt-out car; this helps the lawless elements of Traveller culture maintain a certain power, and gives the law-abiding majority of Travellers a terrible name.

The second fear is that of being labelled racist. Since the Equality Act 2010 recognised Gypsy, Roma and Travellers as ethnic minorities, race has been used to shield this culture from due scrutiny. Sensible questions about why those within these groups are more likely to be in prison, more likely to be illiterate or more likely to suffer domestic violence prompt cries of racism. In April a Channel 4 Dispatches programme titled The Truth About Traveller Crime was dubbed “dehumanising” by activists and investigated by Ofcom. Desperate not to offend, the authorities turn a culturally sensitive blind eye.

The fears hush most into silence, and the silence means the stand-off between Travellers and the rest of society continues uneasily. Many feel disquieted to see the mobile homes rolling on to a local beauty spot, a portent too often of littering, mess, anti-social behaviour. Meanwhile those in Traveller communities are hardly “living their best lives”. Travellers die about ten years earlier than the rest of us. They have higher rates of chronic illness. Their suicide rates are six times higher.

You might argue that they choose to live like this, but the babies born into that life don’t. Many are destined to repeat the same pattern: leave school in your early teens, drift into a life of odd jobs and petty crime, never move beyond the circles you were raised in. As long as the culturally sensitive force-field exists around Travellers, these children are abandoned to a fate that should not be tolerated in 21st-century Britain.

It is a scandal that some Gypsy and Traveller children are taken out of school at primary age; that some start work as young as ten; that about 65 per cent of Traveller children are persistently absent from school; that they have the lowest attainment of all ethnic groups throughout their school years and are far more likely to be excluded. Are we to be surprised when they choose crime?

Young people get it — hard work doesn’t pay

How old were you when you realised hard work and sacrifice weren’t worth it? Some realise it at retirement, when after a lifetime of indispensability and missed weekends to reach the prize — a powerful job — they are smoothly replaced and forgotten within a month or two. For others the revelation strikes later, perhaps ending up on one of those “top regrets of the dying” lists drawn up by palliative nurses. “I wish I hadn’t worked so hard” is always in there.

I think the general rule is that the penny drops some time in your fifties or sixties. Having spent your thirties and forties twitchily looking over your shoulder at your peers, trying to work out who is doing it right (the subtext, I can tell you, of many a tedious pub chat), it suddenly hits you. Most things are basically out of your control.

The philosophy driving Anglo-American economies — work like a maniac and you can achieve anything — is quite obviously untrue except for a lucky few. Everyone else can relax, become more fun to talk to, and maybe get into gardening. That’s a good lesson to learn in your sixties, with retirement on the way. But learn it much earlier than that and you have a problem.

Most of us have to work quite hard just to make a living, and the happiest workers buy into the idea that life is fair, it is all worth it and great rewards glitter just over the horizon. Without that romance and that spur, the daily grind just becomes more grinding. Those kids who could not wait for a marshmallow are of course in line for much less satisfying lives: the test predicts that they will fall in and out of work, even abuse drugs. The workplace is not set up for them. It works only for those who keep the faith.

Exactly - I work for a different bank (not a challenger) - we'll all have that on our financial reports this year.

Monzo are doing the best because of the rate they've grown and the quality of their customer experience - just about every other bank (who aren't a challenger) wishes to buy them - so I would take any talking them down with a pinch of salt. Revolut are bigger, but they've had issues with AML and so would be far more wary of them as a customer.

We'll see - I've used it as my lunch/travel/contactless bank account for a long time now. I'm not about to start paying my salary in there (but know plenty who do), but I think they'll get there and would recommend them to anyone.

Yeah, given they seem to have a significantly above-average rate of account lockouts which they refuse to explain (therefore denying the customer the ability to resolve), I wouldn't trust it as a primary account any more than I'd trust PayPal as a primary payment provider.

I can understand why more accounts get locked - they're on the hook for fraud, and by necessity there's a sensitivity/specificity trade-off in fraud detection, so if you're in a financially weaker position the PR hit of false positives is a better bet than having to cough up on false negatives.

I've seen this "it's a sim so we can charge you 'sell a kidney' prices" lots and I was wondering if anyone knows whether it's just a cash grab, they won't sell as many copies as CoD or the MCC so they have to charge more to break even or are there actually additional costs involved with making sims that justify higher prices for the customer? It seems to me that it's often just a case of a captured audience who can't "vote with their feet" because some sims have de facto or near monopolies on their genre.

They're a for-profit company, they're just charging as much as they think they can get away with.

I've got no problem with DLC in principle, but I hate day zero DLC and "premium editions". Salami-slicing a game on release day just feels grubby and exploitative, especially when you're parcelling off some of the most desirable content.

Do you have any anime recommendations?

This year I got into the habit of watching Natsume's Book of Friends before bed. I've found anime in general to be good for helping you unwide when you're otherwise entirely busy with work. Natsume seems to tick the right boxes for me in providing escapism with self-contained stories that make you think. Previously I've enjoyed Mushishi and Kino's Journey for the same reasons of relaxation.

>if anyone has other sci-fi-ish recommendations I'll take them.

The only Space one I can think of right now is "Tytania", but it's actually really disappointing, considering it's by the Legend of Galactic Heroes author.

On the other hand, "Real Drive / RD Sennou Chousashitsu" (by the same writer as Ghost in the Shell) takes a laid-back approach to Sci-Fi. It's set on an artificial island somewhere in the South Pacific, using a fully connected AR-based society which makes use of saltwater as a data storage medium. Some residents of the island have found ways to hack into this "Meta-Real" system for the purposes of pleasure-seeking and crime, and so an investigation team uses a "diver" to catch them like something out of The Lawnmower Man.
Many of the stories are self-contained but slot into an overarching narrative of social quandaries and plutocratic backstabbing. There's a lot of stuff there that would appeal to someone who is into the kind of stories that fetaured in 2000AD, for example.

I should say that another anime that I'm watching right now is Re:Zero. It does have cliché elements being an anime about a NEET transported into a fantasy world but there's an interesting idea around how fucked up it would be to live with a particular superpower.

Spoiler for what that is ruins episode 1 but I assume you will have watched it already if the above were enough: When he dies he returns to a save point. Every 3-4 episodes is him facing off against some challenge and mostly having to watch all his friends die over and over until he gets it right.

>ACCA:13-ku Kansatsu-ka (not the Insurance company) - A bright and colourful web of political intrigue in !NOTAmerica. Everyone is fucking beautiful for some reason.

I really enjoyed this. I'd say its really more a political thriller in !NOTJapan if it never formed a unitary state because you have elements that fit strongly with the past and present of Japanese monarchy and an underlying allegory to the Japanese succession debate.

This is a bit ridiculous isn't it? Penalising people with degrees.

Is it worth just lying on my CV and saying I don't have a degree? Anyway they can find out? What would be the best way to do it?

I don't think it is ridiculous when their stated mission is to help people without degrees - why should you jump the queue when you've already had that opportunity?

An official FBI twitter account just posted a link to the Protocols of the Elders of Zion without mentioning that it's a heinous antisemitic forgey. What game are they playing at?

The document they tweeted isn't Protocols but an analysis of Protocols, which includes the text itself. The analysis states repeatedly that it's a forgery.

I've always felt the Jew thing held about as much weight as the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society rhetoric, both are the nonsense of the resentful outsider.

Israel on the other hand is a horrible spiteful nation that should be driven into the sea for the sake of the rest of humanity.

How many inversions does this list of numbers have?

(Warning: large list, 100,000 numbers)

My code says 2,407,905,288

>Wat is inversion?

>The number of pairs (i, j) of array indices with i<j and A[i] >A[j]

An asc-sorted list has no inversions, a dsc-sorted list has n(n-1)/2 inversions.

So my Three contract (24m One Plan at £33.50pm) is finally bloody ending and I'd rather not keep paying for this lacklustre Galaxy S4. It's caused me more bother than good.

Do any of you chaps have recommendations for a more modern handset, perhaps on contract at a lesser price? Stock Android is a bonus. Expandable memory is a must.

Catch is these sub-networks always have shit coverage, as if they don't utilise the full network or something. I've no idea but there must be a cost saving somewhere. I'm with O2, my missus is on plusnet, who supposedly us O2. She always has poor signal or limited Internet, where I'm having no trouble.

I thought maybe that, but the Vodafone logo is displayed on the VOXI website, though granted only at the footer. Then again, I remember when they launched, they had a stand in my uni's SU, which as I recall had the "BY VODAFONE" fairly prominently displayed.

Whatever, I'll probably go with them as my vodafone coverage where I am is fairly good, and if it's shit I'm not on contract.

Three operate a similar sub-brand called SMARTY. It allows them to compete on price with the likes of GiffGaff without directly competing with themselves. You don't get some of the perks available on the main brand, but the core service is exactly the same.


Plusnet uses the EE network, not O2.

Finally got round to giving Vodafone a ring to cancel, and they offered me a discount to £12 on the same plan, so not all too different to VOXI.

What they didn't say until I asked before agreeing to the new contract, was that it was for 24 months instead of the 12 I've been on for the past few years. I don't like that at all.

Stuff happened, and I didn't get round to trying to switch to VOXI until today.

Trying being the operative word. Their chatbot comes up with an option to chat to an advisor, but when you click the button it simply disappears, and anything you type is automatically answered by the chatbot in an endless loop.

Their Facebook chat will never let you speak to a real person, and they'll only answer the phone on their complaints line if you're already with VOXI.

So, fuck that and fuck them. Guess I'll shop around elsewhere.

I'm sure he did - and its totally normal for that to be lying around on the under pressure ministers otherwise minimalist desk, when he invites a PA photographer into his office.

I know that Boris has many skeletons in the closet - there are plenty of stories/gossip that haven't hit the news yet - but he needs to fire the fucker right now.

What should be truly disturbing about this is there's no computer on the desk. Not even a laptop.

Department store Debenhams has officially gone into administration after the shop rejected plans by Sports Direct's Mike Asheley to save it.

FTI Consulting has now been appointed as administrators for the chain, whose shops will continue trading for now. Debenhams is expected to close 50 of its 165 stores in the future, but no timescale has been announced yet.

How come it seems like almost every high street shop is either in administration or on the brink of it?

Not relevant to the conversation but hopefully Mike Ashley is sweating at the moment.
A huge Amazon warehouse is opening just down the road from his Shirebrook sweat shop and Amazon are offering a lot more pay.
Talking to some people who work at Ashleys warehouse nearly the entire staff is looking to revamp hopefully forcing him to offer better pay and shock horror an actual contract

Amazon is a great company to work for, as long as you're not in one of the warehouses. Your friends might get paid more, but they're about to learn the meaning of "work hard".
