Good for her. I hope as an unwitting poster child she is use to inspire people off their arses rather that to justify peoples obesity to themselves.

The language and focus of the definately tips towards the latter. The newspaper clippings of 'Smashing body sterotype'/'showing body diversity' is code for "I'm not thin, I can't be thin, thin people are different from us, I hate them and think they are priviliaged, it's time we took power", I hope this story ends in her getting too thin for them (as she innevitably realises her weight is a hinderance to on her progress) and them resenting her for not really being 'true fat', rather then her breaking her leg because of her weight, and people having a sneer because what she has come to represent.

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.

It's sort of rare. I wouldn't ever recall about it if I hadn't a 9000 parked nearby, with the 'on sale' sign.
I think it's been carrying that sign for about two years now, perhaps three. Not a bad car visually; I haven't been inside or driven it to form my own opinion fully though.

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.

Lads - I come with an overdue update. I probably also need a sense check. Vitriol, disappointment or even just some pat on the back and a 'you made your bed' would be nice, even appreciated.

I took the cowards option by the way. I am heartless, I lack courage and I went with both. I'm disappointed in myself and sometimes feel a rush of guilt to the head, but then it subsides. I let the girl come and see me from holiday and manufactured some distance between me and the girl here so we didn't see each other that much.

Holiday girl came to visit, we hung out, it was a great fun and when holiday girl went to see friends elsewhere in the country, I would drop by with other girl to say hello and that was it.

Holiday girl went home, I had one very close shave where they caught wind of each other but I managed to diffuse it.

I carried on speaking and hanging out with both, one in person, one over the internet when she returned and acted like nothing was up.

Now is the time again for holiday girl to visit if we are realistically likely to keep this going. She is still, and always will be my ideal, but again I am no closer to being with her in any consistent capacity in person, although we vaguely talk about making a move to where she is.

The other girl can't understand my reluctance to make substantial plans, but she's lovely, getting better to be around and is actually nice.

I have to bin one off, commit to a plan with one this week, if I say no to holiday girl visiting it's over, if I say yes, I obviously have to say goodbye to the girl here. They both have unending patience for my sometimes Jekyll and Hyde attitude to life and them which comes from me having to balance them both. I can't pull off another visit without the other clocking on something is up. Time is up, the decision has to come.

Definitely B), career before fanny until you're at least 35. Unless you can find a good job opportunity wherever holiday girl lives? Then you get your cake and eat it.

But like the other chap says, you'll likely only ever see non-holiday as a compromise and that'll fizzle out anyway.

You sound young enough (and indecisive enough) that you'll have forgotten both of these girls in a handful of years. Please don't chuck anything away for either of them.

It hasn't massively devolved since the last major devolution in 2013-2015. Yet.
Since the last presidential elections (which, frankly, at least somewhat look like a large-scale psyop) it's all hanging by a thin thread. Feels like it's about to crash down once again.

I've been at university as an undergrad for way too long. During that time I've changed course, and repeated various years multiple times. Uni have been very supportive, offering me multiple chances to try again and again, but my mental health has been rapidly deteriorating over this period. I'm on my final chance at taking this year, and I have so much outstanding work they're unlikely to let me do the work over summer. My mental illness is pretty crippling, rendering me unable to do anything, let alone academic work. So in a week's time, I'm likely to be told my time is up.

How do people come to terms with failing uni? Going in there was so much pressure put on me, I was the first of my family to go to uni, I was going to get a good degree and have a £50k salary. But it looks like I'm not going to live up to my family's expectations. I'm in the process of applying for jobs and benefits, the Jobcentre have been surprisingly helpful. I feel I'm maybe not cut out for uni, at least while I battle my demons, but it's hard to come to terms with the fact that I'll forever be known to my loved ones as the child that failed uni. The only thing I was good at growing up was academia, but I don't even have that anymore. I feel like I've completely lost my identity.

>How do people come to terms with failing uni?

I failed my Masters and had a similar experience of losing my identity as an academic. Don't worry, soon as you get a career you will have that label to live within and nobody will give a shit about school.

Obviously remember that leaving uni won't magic away your problems though. One of my uni mates dropped out of his undergraduate degree, fell into a decent job in banking but that slipped through his fingers because he still had the same issues.

I'm in my mid 30s. The only one of my mates making reliably over £30k dropped out of uni and has plodded his way up the ladder as an accountant.

I'm 30 and I'm the only one of my mates from school/college earning over £30k, possibly even £25k. I do have a degree but I ended up taking an entry level admin job on £12k and working my way up, doing industry qualifications (which are far more valuable than my degree) as I went.

I guess it's all relative. My parents never earned much more than £20k (I think my Dad peaked somewhere around £22k, my Mum a bit less) and we were better off than most of my friends so, when I was growing up, I saw earning more than £20k as 'making it' whereas some people would have gone to university with six-figure starting salaries in mind.

I know I'm a bit late to the party but I'm considering getting either a PS4 or an Xbox One. I'm assuming these days there's little difference between the two other than having the odd exclusive title. I've seen a few Xbox One bundles in the region of £150 - £200 so I'll probably go for one of them as they're cheaper than what I've seen for the PS4.

Have I left it too late, as in are the next generation of consoles expected any day now? Also, which games do you lads recommend? I'm a bit out of the loop with gaming.

I'm aware America has had those problems and surely still does to one extent or another, but there's no way you can defend the statement "almost anywhere in the world has better internet infrastructure than the States" when they're posting top 10 average speeds.

And who cares if half of America can't buy it? That stills leaves a market much bigger than the entirety of other countries they've deemed worth entering. I also don't think Google is betting even 1% of their success on the likes of Stadia. Game streaming has been on the cards for years and with all their datacentres and fibre they may as well toss their hat in the ring.

I can defend it, because my whole point was that average speeds have nothing to do with the average consumer experience. Most Yanks I know have shite internet and constantly moan about it.

With regards to Google I will admit I am just wishfully thinking that they will over-reach and collapse, before they get their slimy corporate hands on the blueprints for actual T-800s and start selling them to hipsters.

This is the most excited I've been about an upcoming TV series in a while.

It starts on Channel 4 on 20th June but it's already out in America; the reviews I've seen of it have been very positive.

Are you all just going to pretend this isn't happening?

I assume everyone's already illegally downloaded last nights episode? If so you'll definitely understand my next question...


I'm reckoning Cersei at a daring 50/1.

Allo .gs. I'm going to buy a Nintendo 64 for someone as a gift. I want it to connect to a Sony XF9005 TV.

I'm aware I'll need something like an A/V to HDMI converter, but I know these things can look shite if you don't do it right. Obviously it doesn't need to be crystal, but a good picture and sound would be nice. Is there a smart way of connecting it?

After having a Google I realise there are some interesting custom kits out there, like, but that's a bit above my effort threshold at the moment. Any other recommendations?

Does your telly not have a composite video input? It'd seem to make more sense to just use that.

The coloured cables, you mean? As long as they haven't been removed in the most recent generation of flat screens... Even searching on specs websites hasn't made this entirely clear.

It's not my television so I can't check physically, unfortunately.

They do specific ones aimed at the retro gamer. So long as you get one of those I don't think you can go far wrong, they usually also do stuff like compensate for frame delay, which is apparently a thing because analogue TVs at the time worked differently with the frame rate. You might have mixed results with a general purpose one.

When I was into retro games a few years ago the thing to get was called a Framemeister, but I'd imagine it has all moved on a bit now.

I'm going to start this by saying that it's going to look like absolute arse unless you pay a lot of money. It looking blurry and shitty might all be part of the fun, but if you're interested in why your childhood memories are going to look like a smudgy mess on that TV then read on, I guess.

Converting old analogue signals to HD digital ones is just massively more difficult than you'd imagine. Upscaling a DVD to make it look "ok" on a 4K set requires a lot of post-processing, and the end result isn't ever great. All modern sets that have analogue inputs are tuned to this use case - they will process the fuck out of composite video in an attempt to make DVD/TV look passable.

Unfortunately, this means that the situation is significantly worse for retro games. The aforementioned post-processing tends to add hundreds of milliseconds of latency, which makes anything other than turn-based games pretty much unplayable. This can sometimes be fixed to some degree by enabling "game mode" on the TV, and that may be good enough if you're just messing around and don't care how things look. It doesn't address the issue of scan conversion and upscaling, i.e. how to take a ~320x240 analogue signal and turn it into a 3840x2160 digital signal, in 16ms or less. The Framemeister >>22842 mentioned does a good job of upscaling, and the OSSC is also great, but neither of these are the kind of thing you'd give as a gift.

To make matters worse, an un-modded N64 doesn't output anything better than s-video, and that TV doesn't seem to have anything other than composite. That'll be composite "240p", and most consumer sets make a right fucking mess of upscaling this. Early 3D games get a particularly hard time of this as the aliasing (jaggies on polygon edges) tend to be much more noticeable than in 2D art.

>I'm aware I'll need something like an A/V to HDMI converter
There are no cheap composite to HDMI converters that are worth buying; they are simply the same chip (very likely worse, in fact) that's in that Sony TV.

Getting an N64 to look anything other than absolute shite on a modern set is really pretty hard. I'll almost always go with the original hardware for nostalgia purposes, but for N64, I'll go for an emulator-loaded laptop every time (not least because of the framerate increases).

/v/21207 Black Mirror season 3
How has a thread about this not been made yet?

My brains just about managed to survive the first 3 episodes but it's so incredibly fucked up. Episode 2 in particular legitimately 'triggered' me to the point I came close to having a full blown panic attack.

I don't remember any of the stuff in the first two seasons coming close to these new episodes in terms of quality or brutality. Though I suppose the Christmas special was a sign of things to come. I'm guessing now that Netflix have taken it up it's got more resources and Brooker's perhaps taken less of a role in production. Either way his screenwriting abilities seem to just be getting better and better.

Smithereens. Best one of the series, but it wasn't anything special.

This isn't the first time i've attempted to extol the virtues of Miley Cyrus and it likely wont be the last. But the girl is ridiculously talented if you venture beyond the radio friendly pap. She's done an awful lot of side work and covers etc that really show off her pipes. But people just think of Wrecking Ball and twerking.
