20 years ago it was still nice (one of the nicest IMO) chocolate even if it had less cocoa solids than the elitist european definition.

nowadays is a different matter, it's like eating brown candle wax. we let the yanks take over a british institution and the first move they made was diluting everything with palm oil, so it's far less deserving of the name.

Absolutely seconded. I used to steal valium from my parents (yes, that was not a proud moment by any means) and it's robbing Paul to pay back Peter, except Paul is a really dodger geezer and will come after you. Replacing one drug with another that has a similar effect is really not going to help you. Even if doctor perscribed I'd be very wary unless the doctor is aware of your alcohol history and fully on board with it. A bored overworked GP handing you the vallies is not on your side other than to tide you over.

While I understand your stance that self medication with addictive pills is stupid (and it is) there is wide and ample medical use of benzodiazepines for alcohol detox.

If you try to come off a really bad drinking habit cold turkey you can quite literally die from the seizures unless you're medicated with something else.

Obviously the trick is medical supervision and keeping the use purely for the detox and under the generally acceptable two weeks limit. What you don't want is to find yourself still on Valium three months later as a crutch for not drinking. As you both pointed out you're just swapping one drug for another although we disagree as to which drug is worse (alcohol will definitely both make you sick and klll you faster, Valium will probably get you hooked faster).

My bad. As it's the Resting Actors thread I put two and two together and came up with seven. If I could delete my posts I would, but Firefox is acting up of late so my embarrassment will remain on my personal record. That said, I will go on record as saying that I don't see how using Valium is going to help someone stop smoking weed unless they plan to permanently swap one drug for the other (which is a Really Bad Idea).

Sage for basically repeating things that other people have already said but with far less relevance.

Maybe I was a catastrophising a little, you are off course right that medical supervision is crucial — even diamorphine can be safe and useful under such conditions — but in a resting actors thread I think it's very important to avoid tempting people into trying to self medicate.

/pol/92148 Centralisation
This is a post by the founder of telegram, I thought this was a very interesting idea worth sharing and is a good way to contextualise the current fucked up state of the world.

>The "capitalism <-> socialism" opposition seems outdated. I prefer to think in terms of "centralization vs decentralization". Humans have evolved to perform best in small groups of less than 150 people. That's why wherever there's centralization and excessive hierarchy, there's inefficiency and underutilized human potential. Capitalist monopolies and socialist dictatorships are equally bad.

>In a natural environment, every small community is able to produce an outstanding leader and an independent thinker. In today's world of trillion-dollar monopolies and bloated governments, the potential of hundreds of millions of people is suppressed by the limitations imposed by our artificial societal structures.

>That is the reason why tens of thousands of people working at big corporations such as Facebook have failed to keep up with what our small team at Telegram has been implementing. That’s also the reason why countries like Russia fail to generate and retain global brands in their jurisdictions. Genuine creativity is rare in organizations and societies built on excessive hierarchies and lack of personal autonomy.

>the current fucked up state of the world

Pandemic aside, there has never been a better time to be alive than now. The past - even the relatively recent past - was shit.

If you want to seriously address the question of where we're going wrong, you need to meaningfully engage with all the ways that we're getting things very right. We're living longer and healthier lives than any generation of humans in history. Global poverty and child mortality have never been lower. The world today is more democratic and has more respect for human rights than ever before.

There's nothing wrong with being idealistic, but it's incredibly dangerous to let that idealism turn into a nihilistic black-and-white view of social progress. There are many ways that the world could be made better, but there are many more ways that the world could be made much worse.

I would question this for the western world in recent decades. Depending on your criteria*, it's not very hard to see that a not-insignificant number of people in this country still haven't returned to the quality of life they had in 2007. Everyone calls to technology, to global poverty and to global democratisation as signs of progress because the data there is unambiguous. What winds lost in the wayside is that none of that is any consolation if your own life or your own town has gone to shit, especially if nothing and nobody is credibly going to improve it. We may live in a world with more democracies than ever, but most first world democracies have run into crises of legitimacy. It's worth asking why that is.

*And you can have some fun with this. I was assuming a mixture of actual financial position + perceived quality of life, but you can always factor in the hedonic treadmill for extra fun. I suspect that to the human brain, irrational as it is, it feels better to live in China and see your standard of living raise year on year from a low point to a middling one than it does to live in Britain and see it stagnate or moderately decline, despite staying better off in absolute terms.

If there's something specific you're looking for you could do the audible free trial.

There is also a lot of older content hosted on youtube and the like. Maybe even soundcloud and spotify.

I imagine the reason that there
are less audiobooks online because fewer people listen to audiobooks and the filesize is much larger than that of a humble epub.

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.

Give it a few years and we'll all be slaves for the early retirees.

Coronavirus will wipe through the elderly, which means that those in their fifties and sixties will inherit the wealth of their parents and it'll have barely been reduced by having to pay for care fees. Care homes up and down the land will close as there's fewer elderly people needing their arses wiping, leading to hundreds of thousands of people suddenly without a career.

The population pyramid means that those in retirement are the ones who have to be appeased to win elections. We'll be at the whim of these very wealthy early retirees.

I would say they are, but I have loads of DIY experience so it's hard to really be sure. The stud is always, always a better option, particularly with a desk. The bigger Gripits (blue) can hold 120kgish per fixing, but I still wouldn't be sure what would happen if you sat on a desk held up by them, there's leverage then.

It must be fixed to a sturdy wall (not just screwed into dry wall without anchors) if you want it to be solid, but if can be sure no toddler will try to climb it and you follow above given advice about heavy at the bottom, light at the top you'll be ok. Pretend its Jenga and the damn thing wants to topple over, basically.

Also bear in mind that, when fixed to a wall, there'll be little flex in the structure. When that's absent, it can flex however it wants. Even if you keep your lead bar collection on the bottom shelf, you still can't use the top shelf to store heavy things because the structure is a bit flimsy.

/e/24777 Overdosing on nostalgia
I recently found out that archive.com, besides being generally amazing, has exhaustive collections of content. This includes files for pretty much every videogame ever released, up to Wii/PS3 era and some beyond.

https://archive.org/details/no-intro_romsets - This contains complete romsets for every cartridge or floppy based console out there, from Atari 2600 to N64.

https://archive.org/details/@atrac17 - Here's everything CD based from Sega, and some Sony.

Obviously these things are being updated, but the missing content is limited to stuff like 'Flemish Beta release'. If that sounds appealing to you, then we share an illness. There are also curated collections out there (eg Champions collection) if you don't want to sift through all that toss.

I found out that emulation has evolved a bit since my day, and now you have the option of consolidating emulators within a frontend, like Retroarch - https://www.retroarch.com/index.php

There are a bevy of handheld or plugin consoles that can emulate some fairly modern systems. There's also Retropie and stuff like that, so you can basically create your own emulation platforms. It's mental what's gone on since I last looked in.

On the obsessive side, there are numerous groups (ReDump, No Intro, 1G1R, TOSEC) who create their own 'dat' files, which contain all expected files and can be used to verify a checksum to validate the rom file. There's rom management software, like the picture attached - I've recently found that it's easy to create your own dat files using clrmamepro (rom management focused on MAME, the arcade emulator), so I'm now sorting my collections into a few groups so I can host the core ones on an ftp for when my HDD inevitably dies.

Finally, if you duckduckgo (no wonder they aren't taking off, how the fuck do you shorthand that?) 'games over girls' you'll find a slightly disturbing set of photos of women dressed up as game characters and feigning unconsciousness in awkward poses.

WinAmp was a Matryoshka doll of constrained creativity. You highlighted skins, but there were several visualisation plugins which had their own plugin or configuration language (I didn't learn about cartesian v.s. polar coordinates this way, but I first understood how the latter work way back).

I wonder some times if its rose tinted memories (the demo scene is obviously alive and well), but even the ways you get started with modern technology feel like a hand-holding exercise. The step towards "learn to code" is so much easier, but the step towards "actually learn to code" is harder.

I've just put a whole clove of chopped garlic in one portion of fried spaghetti.

I may need help also.

That's really not that much garlic, to be honest, especially for what I assume is a version of aglio e olio.

I don't know why you all thought you shouldn't eat garlic in the before times, who fucking cares if your breath smells, just have some gum. You've been missing out for years. I suggest you all try roasting some heads of garlic in the oven now and spreading the result on crusty bread.

>a version of aglio e olio

It was pretty much that, yes. I had a little bit of spaghetti left over from last night, so I fried it up with olive oil, the garlic, and a few herbs. It was absolutely delicious, but I've already got that sharp garlic taste in my mouth that you get a while later and which lingers till the next day.

I wonder if the alleged health properties of garlic already take effect if you occasionally go crazy on fresh garlic, or if it's the same as some other fruit and veg where you'd literally have to eat tons of the stuff to make a measurable difference. Like the way red vegetables are supposed to give your skin a healthy looking hue, but you'd have to eat nothing but tomatoes and carrots for a month for it to actually show.

There's something I'm not getting at all. So I managed to get accepted to Oxford (postgrad) and after that, I'm supposed to get a college. They just "forward" your application, nothing else to do but I managed to get rejected from the two colleges I chose semi-randomly based on how nice the building looked, and as a foreignlad I'm wondering what's the point of it, besides cheaper accommodation.

I don't think anybody knows.

I think that even if you got all the college heads and departmental heads together to draw a diagram of how it all worked they wouldn't be able to.

It's probably a veritable labyrinth of bureaucracy and tradition.

It's fairly simple. The college's have their own money, some of them lots and lots of it, and so historically they have been powerful enough to either make unilateral decisions, or influence the university body as a whole.

The university departments, and the university administration, are new fangled things of the last 100 years.

As a 19 year old male would it be considered suitable (pun not intended) to wear a suit in less formal situations, such as lectures or casual social situations? Or would it just be a case of overdressing?

The reason I ask this is because the only time I've been complemented on my dress sense is when I've suited up. It feels nice to wear suits and increases my confidence.

Cheers

That one signals a very specific lifestyle, if you are Wes Anderson or don't mind being mistaken for him by all means.

If your mates don't expect that kind of style from you they will probably take the piss, if they do it will be entirely accepted. Put it another way.. How middle class are you? I mean everyone thinks they are middle class, but are you actually REALLY middle class, the kind who are incapable of reverse snobbery.

If you have a darker skin tone I reckon it would work, but you risk looking like your texture's failed to load if you're the same colour as the suit.

My sister spent a fiver on a silky face mask in almost the exact same tone of pink of that suit, she seemed very proud of it until I told her that it made her look like the main character from the "I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream", she hasn't worn it since.

That's all very well and good, but it doesn't help illuminate the discussion, just to shut it down. I'm curious about the criteria of childishness, not whether or not a healthy mind is in denial about their inner child or whatnot.

I am also specifically curious as to why more adults don't climb trees.

Trubbish is the land counterpart to Koffing (air pollution) and Grimer (water). It's not an independent mon, a terrible design and totally unnecessary filler as Grimer never operated that way.

>BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF IS IT ANY MORE RIDICULOUS THAN BLASTOISE HAVING 2 CANNONS IN IT'S BACK OR DID YOU JUST ACCEPT THAT AS FINE BECAUSE YOU WERE A CHILD AT THE TIME.

The difference is that Blastoise was a rad end-of-game evolution for a 10 year old.
