Young adults in England have scored among the lowest results in the industrialised world in international literacy and numeracy tests.

A major study by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) shows how England's 16 to 24-year-olds are falling behind their Asian and European counterparts. England is 22nd for literacy and 21st for numeracy out of 24 countries.

Unlike other developed countries, the study also showed that young people in England are no better at these tests than older people, in the 55 to 65 age range. When this is weighted with other factors, such as the socio-economic background of people taking the test, it shows that England is the only country in the survey where results are going backwards - with the older cohort better than the younger.

Cue lots of finger pointing and nothing changing.

If I remember education rightly, teachers are, as a group, spineless cretins. When I was a lad, the biggest yobs always got away with it, as though the teachers were actually scared of them instead of bollocking the little bastards. And as an adult, I can kind of see why. You don't want that yob's 6'4" dad baring down on you at parents evening over why his son was excluded, it's simply more than your meagre pay is worth. Just turn a blind eye.

There's a properly Darwinist aspect to the way our schools work. People who were bullied have demonstrably worse outcomes in later life, regardless of intelligence. The people who were teacher's pets always turn out to be fucking insufferable cunts- I'm thinking of this one lass at work who's near enough the female Arnold Rimmer. And the people who did the bullying? Successful, happy individuals whose social skills and confidence matter far more in adult life than any exam result ever did.

Burn the whole thing down. Sorry for the rant.

The 'scary dad' is more mythological than you seem to present it.

Often, troublesome students have a really complex set of problems that can't really be dealt with by a single worn-out geography teacher, let alone a worn-out state school. It's not worth spending every lesson fighting with them, because that's a waste of resources and stops those that can learn from learning. These kids are clever too, because they know that they can only be told off- what's another telling off going to do?

Basically, they're outside the system. I was often told off for comparably small faults, but that's because I clearly could work within the system. If it helps, it's like a person that's had one drink against a person that's had about 20. At some point, you just say "well they're fucked, let's just make sure they throw up in the right place".

It's the same thing with customer service. The returns policy for most stores is pretty clear, but good retail practice is 'if the customer is really being a cunt, resolve it as soon as possible'. Again, it'd be insane to keep a disruptive customer in the store (driving out other customers) all for the sake of £2.50. Young retail staff have such strong egos that they'll refuse to refund the smallest purchase simply on principle.

>People who were bullied have demonstrably worse outcomes in later life, regardless of intelligence

Anecdotal but, I've found no real correlation. A lot of the bullies ended up messed up on drugs, teacher's pets ran out of people to brown nose.

I work with someone who wanted to be a vet when he grew up. When he informed his teachers of this they laughed at him, told him he was thick and that he had no chance, so he never bothered. A lot of potential was wasted as he was definitely smart enough to make it as a vet.

This was in the 80s and, from what I've heard, a lot of teachers back then, particularly in working class areas, were right horrible and vindictive cunts. At least we seem to have largely moved on from that.

>I remember a few years ago seeing a person just walking around a bar offering a low quality free shot to anyone who gave them their email address as a promotion, and people just fill that shit in without thinking, coz free shot!

Back in the old days when cigarette marketing wasn't quite the leper of the advertising world yet that it is now, I remember I was at a bar with a few mates one night and two lasses in Lucky Strike branded outfits came in and offered each of us a free ten pack (do those still exist? ) of Lucky Strikes if we agreed to give them our address details, it was something about the possibility of winning big prizes or something. Naturally all of us did, none of us won any prizes, but I distinctly remember an increase in spam mail (the paper kind) in the following weeks. I wasn't normally that free about givin away my address, so the bastards must have sold it to spammers. And probably got more for my data than it cost them to produce a ten pack of Lucky Strikes.

Back in the day, whenever you went to any sort of political meeting or rally, there was always someone enthusiastically collecting signatures for some or other petition. Romanian orphans, Nicaraguan political prisoners, animal cruelty in Spain, you name it, there was always something new to petition against.

You can see where this is going. It turned out that most of those enthusiastic young men were undercover rozzers of some description; those petitions were basically their way of taking the register.

I assume some of them were. But enough of them probably weren't to be worth their time. It think there was also some token competition that they wanted to contact people to let them know they won which is enough for people to give away their details.

Evening, Mumsnet lads.

I'm running low on ideas of what to read to my son [7]. We're working our way through the Mr Gum books and if I can't think of something when we're finished my other half will probably subject him to Enid Blyton. We've read The Hobbit and all of Ronald Dahl's books for children but I don't know where to go next, possibly Harry Potter (although I've never read them so I don't know what they're like) or maybe something by Terry Deary as he's obsessed with ancient Egypt. Goosebumps?

I'd be grateful for any tips. Any books you were particularly fond of from your childhood?

She's now obsessed with Jacqueline Wilson books. I swear at least 90% of them must be about a kid whose parents are going through a divorce. Either that or they've already divorced and the kid now has to look after their younger siblings because their mum has fucked off to Benidorm with her new fella and there's no telling when she'll be back.

It might just be that these are the main themes she's decided to follow in her books aimed at 9 to 11 year olds. That and bullying.

She does have books aimed at older girls, but I know they cover things like sex and periods so obviously we aren't going to let her read them yet. Who knows what the themes in these books will be? Backstreet abortions and the time dad held mum's head over the hob for burning dinner?

The one on the left is potentially a bit of a minx, but I assumed she was a young looking forty-something who had slightly overdone it on the foundation rather than someone in their late twenties.

There's only one contestant over the age of 40, so I suspect this series might be duller than usual.

I wasn't expecting much from this, but I was pleasantly suprised. There was only a couple of properly on-the-nose bits of satire and it did a lot more than mug off at superhero films.

Shame about Urban's wonky accent and I took a little while to warm up to the main character after he sold a woman a "premium" HDMI cable in one of the first scenes.

I just came off a binge watch of the show I loved it.

I've only read the first couple but the plot is quite different in where Compound-V fits into the universe and that changes everything. They also tweeked it to critique the phenomenon of the MCU in the real world.

Simon Pegg is in it playing his own father as a nod to the comic.

Kyle Urban is a fine Butcher maintaining both his sinister streak and his charm, (unfortunately his cockney accent is a bit uncanny valley at times).

Superheroes are less the subject of ridicule to sneer at in this and more treated as terrifying things you would never want to exist. There are still elements of the nods and winks of poking fun in the comics but more subdued, it is more 'gritty' I'd say.

My biggest criticism is one of the locations they shot at feels more like a counter strike level than the real world. Complete with barrels and waist high crumbled concrete walls to hide behind. which on the scale of criticism is pretty low.

Homelander comes across as the most interesting and complex character.

/£$€¥/3840 Pensions
The OFT have come out and said that many old (i.e. set up before 2001) pension schemes have high charges and offer savers poor value for money. They've also suggested a cap for auto-enrolment schemes, but it's going to be an almost meaningless gesture as you'd be very hard pressed to find a provider offering auto-enrolment terms with annual management charges greater than 1% anyway.

The pension scheme I'm in at work (contribution: 5% employer, 5% employee gross) has management charges of 0.6%, which I'm alright with as it's less than I'd get if I was investing in collectives through an ISA.

However, I've put the charges and contribution details into Invidion's pension calculator for an idea of what I'd get when I'm 65, 40 years from now, and if my salary increases in line with National Average Earnings and I took the 25% tax-free lump sum I'd be looking at a pension in today's terms of 27.5% of my current salary. If I wanted a pension that would be about two-thirds of what I'm earning now then I'll need to contribute, assuming the employer contribution stays at 5%, 15% gross (12% net) of my salary every year for the next four decades. This does depend on what annuity rates will be like then and I'd also be getting the State Pension, as long as they haven't upped the age you receive it to 80 by then.

If it wasn't for the tax relief and my employer matching my contributions then I doubt I'd bother and I'd look into other ways to support myself while I'm in retirement. What about you lads? What are your thoughts on pensions? In my opinion to have any form of decent retirement income you're at the mercy of your employer offering a good pension scheme.

I met a girl on holiday and we clicked earlier this year, I think she is great and we had lots of great sex (exactly the kind I'm into).

We kept in touch and she discussed coming here to see me, even though she lives across the world and wants to carry this on until one of us can make a move to be with the other in a few short years. We skype and message all day every day but obviously the distance is a bit bonkers.

Meanwhile I also met another girl at work who is great but is very boring at the old sex, likes me to slowly grind into her and doesn't like oral sex, anal or anything beyond really vanilla stuff.

Both are attractive, both are lovely, both are really interested, girl from work is probably slightly more conventionally attractive. More importantly, she is also here with me and available now.

What do I do? Do I take the easy route and take the girl who si attractive and be grateful because she's here and there's a realistically good relationship there or do I try and get something to work with the person who is closer to my soulmate but lives across the world and I would somehow only see once or twice a year for the next few years at least whilst we work something out?

Help lads, decision needs to be made soon.

OP, if you're still around, I'd be interested to know how this situation turned out. I've found myself in a similar predicament and am totally lost on the best course of action. I do know I currently feel like shit and have started down that ugly path of lying about my whereabouts. I like them both, and I don't want to be (any more of) a scumbag. I've never been in this situation before -- what began as complacency is leading to active deception.


This post has hit close to home with me and I'm questioning how much I really care for either of them. I really like them both, both would make rewarding relationships in their own right, but neither really seem to suggest any feasible long-term future.

Fucking hell, lads. Is it actually against the law to call someone in public a nazi? I've called people worse, a lot worse. Suppose I better leave the country before the rozzers catch me.

If you make a habit of verbally abusing people on their way to work, I think we can do without you.

I'm assuming he was following her down the street and shouting it at her, if he'd just gone "yous a Nazi, you are" and cleared off I'm fairly certain he'd have been alright.

Last year I lived somewhere else. While I was there, I met a girl through a shared interest group. We'd see each other, and the rest of the group twice a week. We played squash once and tennis once. 6 months after we first met, I moved to another city, and I've been living here for 6 months (hello, London), and I haven't had any contact with this girl. Facebook keeps suggesting her as a "Person I May Know", and I'd like to get back in touch (and ask her out proper), because she's quite special, but I'm struggling to find an approach where I don't come across as a desperate loser.

Add her, send her a message saying "hey, been a while! Fancy a rematch on that squash game?" or something that sounds more like you, add in an emoji or whatever you're meant to do now and that's that. There's nothing desperate about asking a lass out, or even just reconnecting with someone you used to spend time with.

I know this is basic bitch advice, but it seems like you're overthinking it. If you've played two seperate sports with someone that's more than enough justification to add them on Facebook. As we've established you can move around enough to hit balls with rackets I assume you don't look like John Prescott and living in London means you're at least mildly successful, even if you're just ferrying drugs to commuter towns your mum doesn't cook your dinner anymore and women like that. Unless you have some kind of terrible personality flaw like being a lieutenant in the EDL or collecting Funko Pops you should be fine just talking to her.

Yes, like the other lads I fail to see the problem. Maybe you're unable to see that there isn't one because you're so nervous. So, just chill and do as >>28809 says.

/nom/13064 Unusual ingredient thread
I have a smoked garlic bulb from my local greengrocers' and would like some ideas of what to do with it. I know that only a carpet-bagger needs a quick response but I'd quite like to cook with it tonight if anyone has some immediate ideas.

I also thought this could be a good thread for when we find ourselves in possession of a random ingredient and need cheflad the userbase to give us some pointers.

Anything you'd normally put garlic in.

If it's hot-smoked, use it anywhere you'd use roasted garlic.

If it's cold-smoked, there's a risk that cooking will dull the smoky notes, but it'll add an extra dimension to an aioli or mayo, and you'll probably get away with it in a tomato sauce for pasta. That said, worst case scenario is you kill the smoke and end up with the same taste as unsmoked garlic.

Plant it and see if you can grow more smoked garlic and then start selling it back to the greengrocer.

I think the greengrocers' didn't smoke it for long enough. It was clearly cold-smoked as it wasn't softened or browned on the inside, and after some gentle cooking the smoky aroma wasn't very noticable at all. In the end I made a sort of Japanese omelette (I think they call it tamagoyaki) with a little sesame oil and spring onion greens to go with a salmon dish of mine. It was very nice and all but I don't think the fact that the garlic was smoked did much.

Actual hot-smoked garlic like in my earlier pic does look delicious though, I'd love to have that on toast.

A permaban for 'having some sort of mental breakdown' by posting about an old woman buying 16 packets of crumpets?

Clearly Big Toast is behind this. They've always been wary of crumpets.

>>429539 I finally figured out that, if eating a cracker with a topping, it's best to eat it with the topping on the bottom (bottoming?), to get a nice tonguefull of flavour before masticating.

Wouldn't it be better to have the topping on the top and turn it upside down rather than having the topping on the bottom? Depends whether you prefer the smooth or the bobbly side of the cracker, I guess.
