How nutritious is milk? Could you live on milk and milk alone? If so, how much would you have to drink?

What would the effect on your body be, good or bad? Could you negate the negative ones with supplements of some kind?

Just curious.

Push to get staff back to offices amid warning of UK's 'ghost towns'

Workers will be encouraged to return to the office as part of a major media campaign to be launched by the government next week. The television and newspaper messages will promote the government’s aim to reduce the number of employees working from home amid fears that town and city centres are becoming ghost areas as workers stay away.

A report in the Telegraph said the campaign would push the emotional and mental health benefits of mixing with colleagues but also said that ministers would warn that those working from home could be more vulnerable to being sacked.

Can you point out the factually inaccurate statement I made?

This entire debate has swung out from the fact I said "fuck anyone earning over £50,000", that's my opinion and will remain my opinion regardless how many people it applies to, and regardless of any other circumstances. That statement had no bearing on the pay rates in the rest of the civil service, because I wasn't talking about them, I was talking about people earning over £50,000. If I had said something like "everyone in the civil service gets paid £50,000" there would be something to pick at here, but I said nothing of the sort. Furthermore a term like "chunk" is entirely subjective, and in my view 4,000 people is a chunk, so tough shit. You will find no standard index definition of "chunk".

This debate is absurd, it's one thing to be pedantic but there's nothing to even be pedantic about here. Just one lad who read an implication into one post that wasn't actually there.

There was an episode of Bernard's Watch where Bernard had stopped time whilst he was on one of his little escapades, trying to catch a rabbit that was on the loose or something like that, and when he unfroze time several hours later it turned out that the chicken his mum had been roasting was burnt to a crisp because it had continued to cook during all of the hours it was frozen.

This has always stayed with me because I thought it was so fucked up. Imagine you've just got into a red hot bath to relax and next thing you know your tender flesh is peeling away from the bone and congealing around you because, completely unbeknownst to you, you've actually been boiled alive for several hours whilst some little scamp has frozen time so he can be at two different friend's birthday parties at the same time or whatever. Fucked up, I tell you.

Yes. Sometimes people just need to be told to shut the fuck up and stop whinging, but over the last decade we have slowly lost the stomach to do it.

People typically want to blame it on the loony left and all that, but I think it's actually the other way around- The loud morons who poured out of the proverbial pandora's box subsequently occupied and lobotomised the left, making it into what it is today.

I think the Karen one is deliciously ironic though, because look at them all. Being massive Karens about it, proving us right.

You're also forgetting that she's a 'mum-of-three'. She's not only boring but feels entitled which is why she's complaining to M&S instead of her local arse-pissing forum.

Doughnuts are actually one of the 'healthiest' bakery goods, croissants aside. Muffins and cookies take the piss.

I don't know why we've decided as a society that vanilla is plain, it's some fantasy universe plant taking 4 years to mature that magically flowers for 24 hours once a year. A vanilla doughnut is the best.

I'm thinking of playing a bit of Morrowind but own only a fairly low-end laptop (Lenovo Ideapad 320). There seems to be an endless combinations of mods and launchers available. How would I get the absolute bare bones of the game installed and running as fast as possible on limited hardware?

I don't care if it ends up looking like shite, I just want to design characters and a bit of open world escapism.

I recently started playing with an HP Stream 11 which is probably about the closest thing on the market to an eeePC. It has the worst screen of any computer I've ever used but the performance is better than I'd expected. It's not blazing fast or anything, but it's perfectly adequate for writing things up, browsing with a small number of tabs open, that sort of thing. More interestingly I've had no trouble emulating everything up to the PS1, and even PPSSPP has been playable (Albeit with frameskipping on and at the PSP's native 480 × 272 resolution.) Having expected it to choke just running Windows 10 alone, I have to say I'm impressed. (Perhaps it's because they've finally started putting 4GB of RAM in low end machines. It's wild that until recently they had the cheek to sell them with 2.)

Funnily enough I've also been playing Morrowind on it. It heats up a bit even with a lowish draw distance and the nice water effects turned off, but it seems to be perfectly playable.

Well, I just accidentally won a GPD pocket 2 on eBay. They seemed to be going for about £400-500 on there, so I put a cheeky £280 bid on one with a couple of hours left to go, (with 44 bids!) and turns out that was enough somehow. So either I've bought a fucked one without reading the description properly, or I'm a keen bargain hunter. I'll let you know if it turns out to be anything more than a novelty.

When I was in primary school and they'd wheel in the big telly to put on a film it was almost always Dunston Checks In. We all wanted to watch Jurassic Park instead but they wouldn't let us because it was a PG, so we had to make do with Dunston Checks In. I remember being in Year 6 and we were having our end of term party, pretending to be drunk off ginger beer or shandy, singing Chocolate Salty Balls, stuffed full of sausage rolls and crisps, hopeful that now we were the big kids in the school they'd let us watch Jurassic Park... only for it to be Mrs Doubtfire.

I can't remember what they used to show when I was in secondary school, apart from in Year 11 I watched the first hour of Pirates of the Caribbean so many times because it had just come out; the swot girls were obsessed with it and would always pester for it to be shown when they said we could have a film on.

I found my own account on such a website recently as I was reminded of a screenname I used to use a decade or so ago. The offending website doesn't have an option to delete your account, claiming "security reasons", so I just had to change the screenname, change the contact email address to a temporary, and sign out. It upsets me that some morsel of my adolescent internet presence still remains.

I think brand-name tea is worth the additional cost. I switched to Lidl's generic tea for a while when I was unemployed and proper skint, but if you buy commercial-brand tea in bags or leaf, then the little bit of extra cost is absolutely worth it.

I was a real tea snob though for a while. There was a small Indian tea shop in my old neighbourhood where you could buy loose leaf and where they had about 25 different black and green tea flavours in boxes behind the counter. Always smelled delicious when you walked in. If you didn't mind paying up to £7 for 125g of their finest Earl Grey, it was your kind of place.

Echoing this sentiment for motorcycle clothing. Fashion trends will regularly cycle in and out of moto-looking aesthetics, but it should go without saying that their protective value is virtually zero. It sounds obvious, but sometimes even clothing manufacturers will deliberately blur the line between fashion and riding leathers (Barbour, Belstaff, and Schott spring to mind).

There is a growing market for motorcycle gear that looks more like every day clothing and a lot of little leaps forward have been made in achieving decently protective gear that it doesn't feel odd to wear off-bike. Knox is a good place to start. The YouTube channel "FortNine" also has some very good videos on safety ratings and clothing recommendations that meet a decent standard.

I bought Little Duck toilet roll from Farmfoods as it worked out as <20p per roll and supplies were running low.

It's surprisingly durable, no risk whatsoever that my finger will poke through it, but it isn't the most comfortable. I've now used it all up and gone back to Cushelle, which feels so soft in comparison it's like having a cherub caressing my arse.

I miss the days of game shows which take place in elaborate settings making every kid in the country wish they could explore there.

Going through yet another break-up. I think I'm hardening to it, at this stage.

I'll be honest, the worst part of it from the lad's side is just getting someone to care again. I'm tired of the constant effort it takes to even have the opportunity to date. It's like I have to take all the initiative, all of the rejection, all the risk of making a move, essentially all of the time.

This is only my experience, so it's anecdotal evidence, but I'm just venting on an imageboard and not publishing a sociology study. I'm frustrated that the times in my life that a lass has decided she's interested in me they've variously been passive to the point of non-existent about it (i.e. arseing about with her hair on the other side of the room), or downright obnoxious (i.e. grabbing parts they shouldn't grab), whereas when I want to express my interest I feel like I have to go through a dance of proving my best intentions that, if I'm honest, never really ends throughout the relationship.

I often wish I could just get rid of my libido and need for companionship, because it's that need that's pushing me out there into an arena where the ratio of worthwhile human connection to humiliation and danger is laughably bad.

I'll miss the girl I'm with, but what I'm dreading more is the oncoming cycle of loneliness, complete lack of sexual and physical affection, on top of the expectation that I'm the one that's meant to "Get Out There" and "Make Things Happen" yet again. I just don't know if I have the heart for it, and yet a huge part of myself goes unexpressed when I'm single.

I've sort of tried other "middle grounds" in the past, i.e. dating around, trying short-term relationships, but not only is that unsatisfying, frankly it's a fucking full-time job. Or rather, like working four or five part-time jobs simultaneously.

Yeah this. OP, take some time to get your life in order first and don't bother jumping straight back into the shark tank for your own sake. Loneliness hurts but begging around like a dog and getting into the first pants that will have you is your worst case scenario.

>Maybe get along to one of those speed dating events as there are no doubt hordes of horny ladies who have been couped up indoors for a over a year, many of whom have just gotten out of unfulfilling long term relationships.

Can confirm this is not the case, it's still as flaky and superficial as always. Partly I think it's a (somewhat justified) cowardice on the part of women-kind however much they actually feel alone. I mean I wouldn't want to get fucked by a bloke either and especially if I had to deal with wolves in sheep's clothing.

>This post is 90% me trying to pick up my droopy lip after the housemate I was shagging last month has told me that we shall no longer be knocking boots now or at any future time

I appreciate you're trying to take a balanced view, here, but under no circumstances would my "cowardice" ever be viewed as even "somewhat justified", and I really resent the implication that men are wolves by default until they prove otherwise. If you think about it for a second, you should be able to see how viciously sexist that line of thinking is. Lads are human too, after all.

And that was one of the sore points I wanted to express in the OP. I'm really tired of going into every relationship on the backfoot and then having to take a disproportionate responsibility for how well things are going. I just generally feel like I'm jumping through hoops to prove I'm even worth the time.

You're questioning why a woman would be somewhat cautious about opening herself up to an unknown man? Especially when they're literally conditioned to be this way, know full well you'll think less of her for being too keen and has had a pile of other blokes trying to fuck her at any given moment since she turned 12. That goes double on dating apps.

I don't care if you find it sexist. I've personally put up with a lot of shitty women I'd have no interest in were it not for their body and then regretted my logic in post-nut clarity. I now ask myself before I get involved with a woman whether I'd hang out with her if she was a bloke.

>And that was one of the sore points I wanted to express in the OP. I'm really tired of going into every relationship on the backfoot and then having to take a disproportionate responsibility for how well things are going. I just generally feel like I'm jumping through hoops to prove I'm even worth the time.

Tables soon change once you put your dick in her though innit. But yeah the dating game is bullshit, heed the .gs advice of not playing the game - meet women through friends/hobbies. Take this chance to work on yourself.

Emo isn't the place to be devil's advocate mate, even if what you were saying was true. Birds have a lot more agency and responsibility than they'd like to admit in why the dating "market" is the way it is. It's just convenient for them that most blokes are happy to play along.

What we can agree on is that the winning move is not to play, but the caveat is it's a much longer search with a much more proactive effort required. Even so it's the last thing OP needs to worry about right now, and he shouldn't even trouble himself thinking about it. That's for another time, and as long as it takes for him to be ready.

/beat/8707 Cover songs
The Pet Shop Boys' Always On My Mind has been voted the top cover version of all time in a BBC Music vote.

The song, written by John Christopher, Mark James and Wayne Carson, was first made famous by Brenda Lee and Elvis Presley in 1972.

Johnny Cash's cover of Nine Inch Nails' Hurt came in second place, followed by The Stranglers' version of Dionne Warwick's Walk On By. Jimi Hendrix's take on Bob Dylan's All Along The Watchtower came fourth. Jeff Buckley's cover of Leonard Cohen's classic Hallelujah completed the top five.


http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-29791820

Not keen on that version of Walk On By but I like the rest. I reckon I'd have to have a good think about my favourite covers and I'm sure I'd still forget some.

Breakaway, by Tracey Ullman, is excellent. The original version is from the 1950s and is by some unknown person (Irma Thomas, apparently) who never went on to be a legendary comedian who was indirectly responsible for The Simpsons.

/news/34875 Student's design chosen for Queen's Platinum Jubilee emblem
https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-nottinghamshire-58062455

A student has said he is "over the moon" after his design was selected as the emblem to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee next year.

Edward Roberts's purple and white logo was chosen ahead of a number of entries from young creatives.

Featuring a stylised crown and working in the number 70, the round background appears similar to a royal seal.

The 19-year-old, from Southwell in Nottinghamshire, said: "It's just an amazing feeling to win it."

The Queen's Platinum Jubilee will be marked in June 2022 with a four-day bank holiday weekend, among other celebrations.

Partly the ridiculous chip on the shoulder that Scousers have about everyone and everything, partly a latent memory of a time before cheap holidays when we always spent a fortnight in a rain-lashed caravan in Rhyl.

There's an element of cameraderie given our mutual hatred of the English, but the sheer Welshness of the Welsh is a bitter reminder that Scousers are inescapably English whether they like it or not.

I've noticed how my local B&Q and Wickes is running low on just about everything right now - particularly wood. I know plasterers who are paying 3 or 4 times the usual amount for materials. I wouldn't usually go into Homebase, but I did today and it was fucking well stocked with EVERYTHING but deserted of customers.

Who has stuff in stock?

Is CuriosityStream still the best documentary streaming service? I noticed that this week they uploaded a youtubers series which has me pretty miffed given this is on a paid subscription. Their main competition appears to be MagellanTV which has a fair few titles I'd watch but is also over twice the price.

Yes I could watch all of the shows for free but I find it nice to have a catalogue of shows on hand to watch when I'm doing the washing up. It's a business model that works for me better than the standard 1-2 per season tentpole shows that standard streaming services do to attract subscribers while the rest of rubbish.

It seems we don't have a maths board.

I was the one that made the post in the /job/ thread and I'm getting a bit obsessed with that stupid 20 minute "test", because I strongly suspect I've come to the wrong answer (which seems ludicrously low) but can't pinpoint how. The job application obviously matters quite a lot to me, otherwise I wouldn't ask.

Rentry is just an alternative to Pastebin.

Ok well I've never done ROI calculations before, so I'm not sure how to make use of the chance of success.

My back of large A4 fagpacket calculations initially focused on a baseline social cost without the grant for that three year period vs social cost with the vaccine. But I realised you can just jump straight to the jugular of social cost savings, something like this:

God, I'm a thicko. I was reading the DALY figure in the question as "DALYs lost as across the whole population per year", i.e. 1 DALY lost for an entire year of new cases, but it's 1 DALY lost for every new case. No wonder I was off by orders of magnitude.

Thanks, mate. I'll give this another stab from start to finish.

I took another crack and came to the same answer: https://rentry.co/gwysq

I can't think of another way I could be calculating this. For a while I was "umming" and "aahing" about what "success" means for the grant i.e. success of the application or success of the grant working? But I realised it's probably the latter.

1 DALY per case, not per year, puts us at 270B and the chance of working then cuts us down to a more reasonable figure.

Fucking hell. I agreed with both of you on the physical appearance quips, but you seem to be going pretty barmy when people make non-appearance quips.

I have noticed that I, personally, do spot far more lookalikes than most people. Maybe I just only have four or five faces in my head and everyone else has more, and so I am much more susceptible to people saying X person looks like Y.

While I'm loathe to point this out, that wasn't me. And if it was, I'd never admit it. But it wasn't.

For some reason I've spotted at least one lookalike of my brother about once a month this year, but only since coming to London, never anywhere else. And he's the same colour as me so it can't be racist.
