/beat/13009 Oldschool musicals from childhood, or something.
Doesn't this describe autism so well?

I'm intrigued by the Spielberg remake, because of the visuals. But I seriously doubt anything can match the energy of this. I'm not really a musical person, but West Side Story is the absolute best, and America is the best song. I actually sing it to myself every time I visit there.

I hate musicals, but I found out that two of the old guys from Twin Peaks were in West Side Story together, and that struck me as so utterly ludicrous that I watched it purely to see them in it. I'm a big fan of Twin Peaks; the thrill might not be the same if you are not.

A rather unfair contest when the competitors are "His policies presented by a dour Scotsman with a cabinet angry they got rid of Him", "Posh man live action roleplaying as Him", "Autistic Woman's wish to be prime minister granted as national trolling exercise" and "Gimmick Mayor".
I pick the dour Scotsman personally. I admire his brazen attempt to weathervane and go "Oh yeah, I'd have basically been Corbyn if 2008 hadn't happened, y'know. Honestly, I would." now that the political project to which he dedicated most of his parliamentary life is discredited.

Okay might as well try and be polite and keep the oil out of the other megathreads.

Welcome to the motor one. In an attempt to actually get people to post in it, tell me about the car you really want and could feasibly afford. Right now I'm really thinking a lot about a big square 80s Merc as we've been talking about them. Even a Lada would be fun as fuck.

I drove my old car with dead power steering for a full year and a half before I flogged it. I eventually got used to it, and whenever I'd get in someone else's car and eventually my new new car, it felt like driving a light and weightless cloud. I think it was actually giving my arms a bit of a workout too, I had slightly better muscle definition that's gone away since.

Has anyone ever owned/used a VW transporter as a daily driver? I have the notion of getting a nice T5 with the foldy down seat bed thing in the back, as a mountain bike/hiking/travelling day van, but they're not cheap, so I couldn't really justify having it as an occasional car, so it would have to serve as a commuter too. I can't forsee a problem with that, it's likely more efficient than my current range rover.

Do you really need a full size van for what your describing when a people carrier or smaller van would probably suffice?
The reason VW vans are so expensive is due to vanlife nobbers driving up prices aided and abetted by the VW crew - I've drove most mainstream vans available in the UK and in my opinion they are all much of a muchness.
If you really are set on a T5 try and follow the usual van buying advice, try and avoid ex fleet vehicles as they will all have been thrashed to death and look for one from an owner driver.
Vans can end up with galactic mileage and are best avoided, also check the MOT history on the .gov website for mileage discrepancies, haircuts are far from unknown on vans.
Alloys - pretty common for VW vans to be fitted with car alloys - check the tyres have the correct weight rating which most car tyres wont have
Also try to refrain from a 2 tone paint job, dash full of plastic toys and van life stickers

I had a white VW Caddy for my daily driver for a while - it was the most awesome vehicle I have ever owned. Proper white van man stuff.

I absolutely adore the T5's and know where you're going with this - my observation though is they are very pricey. We have an indepdent garage local to me that specialises in them (and tricking them out) - seem to start at £18k for anything half decent.

You seem to have made your mind up on a T5, so I'm afraid your going to have to swallow the (imo inflated) price when the equivalent size van from any other mainstream manufacturer will be equally as good.
Having said that VW vans do hold value better than most due to aforementioned vanlife/vw crew nobbers

I think I might try cutting processed sugar from my diet. How hard can it be. Do you two have any tips on this and have you tried it before?

I might go slow and start with lowering my intake because I don't much fancy having flu-like symptoms at the moment. It seems like I'll also need to be really careful on what I buy because the devil's flour gets in everything.

Cauliflower rice is fantastic. It feels similar enough to real rice and does just as good of a job at being a neutral sauce absorber for the stir-fries and curry-esque dishes I always make.

Worth the cost of getting a cheap food processor (I tried using a cheese grater but the little cauliflower bits fly around everywhere).

Is there a way to work out in advance how much weight I would lose if I did this? I have never even considered such a thing for a variety of reasons, but as I sit here with the Wuhan wheeze, I've noticed I have not eaten between meals for three full days now. I don't do any exercise either, and I basically just nap off and on, but if snack foods are so bad for me, I would expect the weight to start dropping off me soon, even though my actual meals are unchanged.

Based on guesses made by someone who doesn't give a shit and has always refused to care about these things out of principle, I would estimate my intake has gone from 3000 calories/day down to 2500 calories/day by leaving the Kit Kats in the cupboard. It's like the habit has just vanished, although I guess it will return. In terms of my size, I'm 5'8" and I weigh approximately 96kg. I can't say how many calories it burns to just live my normal life, but I usually cycle 50 miles a week to and from work, and then sit moderately still while I'm at work.

Let's say I kept this up for two weeks. Would I lose a visible amount of weight? How can I calculate such a thing?

You need to calculate your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). Your BMR is how many calories you burn per day just living. Eat fewer than that many calories per day, you lose weight. Add some exercise calories, you lose weight.

Most people can cope with a 500 - 800 calorie deficit per day, and lose weight quickly, they just don't know how. You can then easily turn that into 2kg per month loss. Picture related, I lost almost 14kg this year.

You're not wrong, in that women seek out older men usually for their maturity, for the fact that they have their shit together, and that they are just a lot more secure in their own personality. And, well, let's not kid ourselves, also a bit because as a middle-aged man, you tend to be more financially stable than in your 20s. A crippling divorce that will leave some men almost penniless notwithstanding.

What I can say about life in your 40s is that you have come to accept yourself, and you no longer try to be somebody just to fit in or please people around you. You feel like you are what you are, and whoever doesn't like it can go sod themselves.

On the other hand, being 40 and trying to act 25 is just sad, and it also isn't what a certain kind of woman who is into older blokes is looking for. They don't want a manchild who refuses to grow up. And why shag a 40 year old who is pretending to be 25, when you can shag an actual strapping 25-year-old lad in the first place. That isn't to say that some residual youthfulness at 40 won't go a long way. If you are 40 and you are fat, bald, grey and just worn out by life, then trying to get the attention of 25 year olds will be a losing proposition. But if you keep in good nick, watch your weight and get your exercise, then that's definitely a plus.

I'm still not sure I would go that route. Ten or fifteen years age difference, as >>69521 lad said, means there is going to be a huge cultural gap between you, and I am not sure how you would bridge it. It's not just that a 25 year old will have no concept of your favourite Britpop bands from back in the day. The whole way of thinking is bound to be vastly different in ways you can't even imagine while casually fantasizing about bonking a younglass.

They're the party of small government, and they have been forced into the role of big government.

After having enjoyed the sexual bliss provided by Asian women I can't go back to white women. Not only am I into their looks but also their delightful personalities. This most likely only is applicable for Asian girls in Asia and not westernised ones.

Best of all I can sate my impregnation fetish with girls in SEA, or seamonkeys as I like to call them, who want to have a half white baby as much as I want to give them one. I've got a fair amount of bastards toddling about in the Philippines and plan to breed more. Not a single mother has asked for child support.

>Britain's chicken king says the 20-year binge on cheap food is over

>Britain's 20-year binge on cheap food is coming to an end and food price inflation could hit double digits due to a tidal wave of soaring costs that are crashing through the supply chain, Britain’s biggest chicken producer said. As it emerges from the twin crises of Brexit and COVID, the world's fifth largest economy is facing an acute shortage of truckers, butchers and warehouse workers that has exacerbated global supply chain strains.

>"The days when you could feed a family of four with a 3 pound chicken are coming to an end," Ranjit Singh Boparan, owner of the 2 Sisters Group and known as the "Chicken King" said in a statement. "In relative terms, a chicken today is cheaper to buy than it was 20 years ago. How can it be right that a whole chicken costs less than a pint of beer? You’re looking at a different world from now on where the shopper pays more."

>Boparan, who produces around a third of all poultry products consumed in the United Kingdom, said he didn't think the British government could fix all the problems or control inflation. He said the constriction of labour supply would lead to wage inflation and that he would invest in automation. "Less labour means less choice, core ranges, empty shelves and wage inflation, and this isn’t going to change," he said. "Right now I need to be honest about what this means for the consumer as inflation could reach double digits.”

>Prime Minister Boris Johnson has repeatedly said that Britain's economy must kick its addiction to cheap imported labour and that it is positive that wages will have to go up. Johnson's government has denied that Brexit is responsible for the strains on the economy, though no other European economies have faced the same scale of supply chain disruption."I feel confident that there will be good provision of goods for everybody, and we are working our way to remove blockages where we can," Johnson's finance minister, Rishi Sunak, said in Washington.

>Boparan outlined a cost tsunami: feed costs, supplements, veterinary costs and wages have risen 15-20%; an acute trucker shortage; energy and carbon dioxide costs rising more than 500% from last year; and packaging up 20% in six months. 2 Sisters, founded by Boparan in 1993, sells poultry, pizza and pies. It processes 10.4 million birds a week and owns more than 700 farms. Ronald Kers, the chief executive of 2 Sisters Food Group, advised people to shop normally for Christmas and said the company would do everything it could to ensure supplies of festive turkey. Food prices rose by 0.2% in annual terms in August, according to official consumer price data, breaking a nine-month run of declines.

I'm already noticing creeping inflation everywhere. Even my barbers have increased prices which is playing havoc with my budgets, I'm having to make minor adjustments.

>Hobnobs maker warns biscuit prices set to soar

>Biscuit maker McVitie's says the prices of many of its best-selling brands are set to soar. The firm, which is owned by Pladis Global, said brands such as Jaffa Cakes, Penguins and Hobnobs could go up in price by as much as 5%. It blamed staff absences, more expensive ingredients and higher labour costs which it says it has to pass on to consumers. However, it said its "humble chocolate digestive" would be less affected.

>Pladis's UK managing director, David Murray, said: "Omicron disruption, absenteeism, and the rising cost of business going forward present a big challenge for us. "At the end of the day, like in many other categories, it will flow through to higher prices." Pladis, which also manufactures Jacob's crackers and Go Ahead fruit bars, said it had seen double digit-percentage cost rises on ingredients such as cocoa beans recently.

>Higher wheat prices have also hit the business. "We've dealt with substantial challenges in the past in the food industry - whether it's natural disasters, inflation in the economic crisis," Mr Murray said. "It's the compression of the challenge, combined with the scale of some of them [that is different this time]," he added.

>Shortages of many goods, including building materials and computer chips, are causing supply problems and pushing up prices across industries. The cost of living surged by 5.1% in the 12 months to November, up from 4.2% the month before, and its highest level since September 2011.

>Food and drink firms recently warned that they had seen "terrifying" price rises which would have a knock-on effect on consumers.

Automatic headlights make people too lazy in my opinion so people don't think about switching them on in fog or heavy rain when visibilities poor but not dark enough to trip the sensor.
What annoys me more are people who drive at night with their high-beams permanently on. Or how many people leave their fog-lights on when you can clearly see the cars in front and behind.

Marinade is a noun ("Soak the chicken in the marinade overnight.") and marinate is a verb ("Marinate the chicken overnight.").

Therefore it follows that serenade is a noun ("To sing her a serenade.") and serenate is the verb ("To serenate her.").

And if she really likes your serenade, she'll be serenated in her own juices.

What's the best method for making tomato sauce?

I usually slowly cook a few tins of plum tomatoes, but it doesn't quite taste as rich and strong as I'd like. Should I be adding in tomato puree?

Never heard of them before, but my local Asda has tins of Di Leo chopped tomatoes for 28p so I've stocked up. They must have tried to import shitloads from Italy when everything hit the fan earlier in the year because they also had loads of bronze cut spaghetti and 00 flour for 20p.

Sugar, salt, pepper, white wine vinegar and a little dash of soy sauce. Using some nice dried mushrooms helps too.

Depends. How far from scratch are you starting? Are you using chopped tomatoes and passata or starting from a whole fresh fruit?

The key generally is getting the amount of water right, which is a matter of reducing it down. Tomatoes are 99.9% water and 0.1% flavour. If you add in a good dollop of concentrated tomato puree it'll give you a lot of extra punch. After that it's all about seasoning, you shouldn't need more than some salt, pepper and a bit of basil, but just use your tastebuds. I like a dash of garlic infused olive oil in mine. Don't listen to any cunt who says sugar.

Don't be shy with the salt, either, don't be one of these fannies who thinks it's bad for you and that food should somehow miraculously taste good without it. Salt and fat are the vectors through which flavour travels, and that's just a scientific fact. If you've ever eaten at an Italian restaurant, you're basically paying an extra tenner for them to put twice the amount of salt in.

>Drag queens banned from performing at Free Pride Glasgow event over fears acts will offend trans people

[...]

>The organisation said in a statement that it hopes to create a safe space for all members of the LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, intersex, asexual) community, and that while the decision may "disappoint" some people "the needs of the most marginalised groups within our community come first."

[...]

>Free Pride Glasgow said: “It was felt that it [drag performance] would make some of those who were transgender or questioning their gender uncomfortable. It was felt by the group within the Trans/Non Binary Caucus that some drag performance, particularly cis drag, hinges on the social view of gender and making it into a joke, however transgender individuals do not feel as though their gender identity is a joke.”


Life rarely takes the piss out of itself like this. It almost sounds like the plot of a South Park episode.

At this point I'm certain the majority of mainstream ECKY discourse is a psyop. It's 2+2=5 brainwashing mind fuck propaganda. The point isn't the narrative, the point is making people submit to what they're told is the truth.

I must clarify that I'm not a trans-denier, they certainly exist and I support their right to exist. But their movement has been weaponised; much like giving weapons to the mujahideen who would go on become Al Quaeda and provide the justification for nearly two decades of manufactured conflict, the various factions of transit vans and surf'n'turfs and what have you are being used as unwitting cultural mercenaries.

Engaging with the subject in good faith, as such, feels like nothing but wasted time.

I never want to commit to anything because I'm scared that if I do I'll miss out other opportunities that are better. I'm coming up 30 and I've no fucking clue what I actually want to do with my life.

On paper my life is great. 50k salary likely to go up, lovely attractive girlfriend earning double what I do but not an arse about it, my health (as far as I know), family, reasonable friend circle. Just not quite happy and feel there must be more to life.

This is in everything from my career (try climbing the ladder without being specialised in case you want to do tech, or law, or something else), my attitude to life (do I leave things quite high level in case I want to pack it up and go travel?) and just generally everything.

I'm pretty miserable because of it. How do I commit to things and not worry about what might have been instead of always thinking I need to be able to immediately run from what I have to something else?

The unwritten book will always be perfect, right?
I'm not so sure that picking a route stops you from changing course - It'd lead you elsewhere, sure, but you can always turn around or take an unexpected direction. I do that all the time when out and about.
Plenty of people do a lot of stuff with their time. There's no reason why you couldn't persue multiple projects across your days, months and even years.

Do you feel that you're not doing enough? Not experiencing enough of life? Having mentioned travel specifically, is there anything you're particularly interested in seeing?

You are a living example of the hedonic treadmill effect in action.

No matter how much you have you'll always feel you're missing out on something, something that's just out of reach. I earn half what you do, I've got a nice but deeply flawed girlfriend, and I can count my friends on one hand. But I'm content. It's not that I don't have ambitions, but I have to be realistic in my scope, because I've never had the world laid out in front of me for my taking, everything has been an uphill struggle. Everything I do have, I'm pretty fucking grateful for, truth be told.

You might not think this is practical advice, you might not think it's helpful in real terms, but I constantly see people who are better off than me, yet less happy. I think there has to be something to it. The youngsters who start off at my place of work and discover the job isn't what they thought it'd be, and how quickly despondent they get. I wish they felt the way I do, glad to be there because at least it's not answering the phones all day for Plusnet or Curry's. I wish they knew what a really shit job was, not in a "could be worse" sense, but simply in order to have some perspective.

How adventurous has your life been? Did you do the "gap year" thing and go travelling or whatever, or have you been straight on that career path grind since uni? How often do you cut loose and go on a several day long drugs and booze bender? Have you slept with many women? I think all these questions have an effect on your ultimate outlook as you begin to stare down the barrel of middle age. You start to realise you don't have all the time in the world and you can't do everything. You only get one go. "And then one day you find... Ten years have got behind you..." etc.

Personally I did a lot of that in my youth- I mean, that's why I don't have the successful career you do, I fucked it all off to play at being a rock star. It was great fun for four or five years, but you can never go on like that forever, especially not as a complete povvo in reality. Ultimately though I think that's part of why I'm so content now, despite my modest circumstances. I think it's basically this reason why so many men have the typical mid-life crisis, whereas I can pretty reasonably say I've been there and done that.

It sounds to me like the reason you don't want to commit to things is because frankly, you're not ready to. You haven't satiated that youthful lust for adventure. You haven't lived enough to be content with it and settle down. It's not that there's more to life, it's just that you haven't had your fill to begin with. Once you've had enough, the desire to calm it down and plan for the longer term comes naturally, like putting your feet up after a long day of work and dunking a hob nob in your brew.

Yes, yes I do, but I don't know if I'm being unrealistic. I have seen Walter Mitty and it's exactly what I had in mind except my life is probably a bit more rounded than his.

I'd love my Walter Mitty moment but I wonder if I'm being a stupid cunt and not accepting life isn't a fairytale.

I wish I'd done a bit more off the beaten path things. I've done a few, but not enough, but I'm not sure why that means I can't commit or pick a career. That's just me being unhappy with personal experiences.

>>31319
This post hits hard. I also started from a less than ideal place like you and am very much aware of the could be worse. I think that's the problem though, you lived your life and then got through it, I never really lived mine and so I'm scared that just jacking it all in and backpacking across aus or something will mean throwing away the material comfort I've built for myself.

Your post hit home, it is to do with running out of time. I just wonder if whatever I choose I'll always be upset I didn't pick the other? Picking fruit in aus wishing I'd picked the comfy office - earning my comfy office salary but wishing I was slumming it in aus.

You'll always regret the chances you didn't take. If they don't work out, there's loads of boring comfy offices all over this country, and every other country, all over the world. They're all the same. You're not missing out on anything special there.

If I were you I'd take a sort of middle path. You earn plenty of cash as it is, so you can certainly save up a chunk; and you-know-what is still going to be a big deal as far as travel is concerned for at least another year I reckon. So plan your move and don't do it straight away- But in essence, just fuck everything off for a year or two and go have your adventures. It'll gnaw at you if you don't. You're scared to actually take the leap of faith, but I can assure you the realisation you're on the ride now, and you're not getting off until it's done, is worth it.

Now don't get me wrong, this isn't sensible or considered advice, and I have had a couple of beers, but nevertheless. The times I've felt most alive were those occasions I'd just got up and walked out of my job with no intention of going back, and just saying "Fuck it. I'll survive somehow." and then driving off, sunglasses on, arm hanging out the window, fag in hand. The coolest, biggest bollocked, no fuck given bad ass.

Terrifying, obviously, and foolish. But the exhilaration of just having to sink or swim, free falling until you learn how to glide. It's quite the thing.

Of course, people like us are fortunate to be able to do that with the knowledge will never come to any real harm- There is a safety net, ultimately, for most of us; and in my case it was back when the benefits system was still rather exploitable. In your case it's that you can put enough money away that you wouldn't have to worry, and you will always still have a career waiting for you. I doubt a year or two backpacking would see you resigned to working the tills at Tesco, anyway.

Thank you. Really appreciate the insight and surprised how accurate this was.

Because of this post I reached out to an international job offer that got canned by Covid and they might still be able to work something out post-Covid craziness mid next year so here's hoping.

If not, I'll go do some cliche thing where I take 6 months to walk through a country or something and find myself.

I've not felt that exhilaration for a while and whilst I'm super grateful for my safety net in a weird way sometimes the comfort is the worst thing there is for me.

Wish me luck.

My other half has squeezed all of the washing up liquid into a Kilner bottle.

Lads, I don't get it. I really don't get it. I mean, I gave up trying to understand women a long time ago but every now and then something happens that leaves me utterly flummoxed beyond all comprehension. Is 'WITH NOTHING TO SAY BECAUSE I AM A CUNT' still wordfiltered? I mean, she's moved it from one bottle... to another bottle. It doesn't even pour that well so you always end up using more than you intended to. I doubt anyone in the entire history of humankind has ever thought "washing up liquid in a glass bottle, nice." It's bright yellow and she also pours the cooking oil into a Kilner bottle, which she doesn't store too far away from it, so I can almost certainly guarantee at some point in the future she'll end up frying food in washing up liquid. The lid is also a faff. Just... why? Why, lads?

Can you lads please reassure me that your lasses do stupid shit like this?

I know it's a cliché for this time of year but I feel like a loser and I'm going to try and do something about it. I'm unsure about how I set the right pace on a change in lifestyle though so that I don't crash out, what do you lot think is a reasonable pace for hobbies?

My idea is to keep every other day for a particular after work activity, so for instance:
Monday - picking up an instrument
Wednesday - maybe start taking language classes instead of wasting time on Duolingo
Friday - cooking something new, I might look into cooking classes when those come back even if you can get it all free on youtube

These would hopefully give me a chance to make friends, I'm a private man so I only really have two friends who live some distance away. I'd also like to make time for getting into shape once I find a decent programme for an absolute beginner - this being for both my long-term health but also as I want to look better.

I know it's also a cliche, but a few-birds-one-stone approach might be to take up rock climbing if there is a decent gym around you. It's an interesting and enjoyable hobby, it'll help you get fit, and you'll end up meeting people if you do it often enough even if you're not especially good at it.

Everyone I work with and everyone I went to uni with are fervent rock climbers. I honestly cannot understand it. I tried it twice and both times it was one of the most miserable experiences of my life. The shoes are like wrapping your feet in impermeable cling film so they just collect sweat, and if you don't have narrow feet (I have EEEE wide feet) then are horribly uncomfortable. You have to completely dry your hands out, which I absolutely abhor the feeling of, and the second time I ripped so much skin off the palm of my head I left a massive blood trail all the way down the wall, and it didn't heal fully for about 2 months.

Everyone says it's about problem solving too but I didn't see that.
