I once tried to use lard as a water repellant for my shoes. 30 minutes after applying, we found the dog had taken them to the garden for a good chew.

Lard on toast sounds wrong. It's so gritty.

How has impacted your life?

The worst thing for me, apart from the dodgy stock tips, is that I had a brief phase about eight or nine years ago of saying "don't have a teary" if someone was wound up. I'm fairly certain it's thanks to this place that my previous two phones were Moto Gs and I've picked up a fair few music recommendations, but you've slacked on the film recommendations front as the last good one I've heard about from you lot was Sightseers and that was a fair while back.

What is the king of confectionery boxes?

I used to think it was Cadbury Roses, but I had some lately and they've greatly reduced the variety and quality of chocolates available. I've heard Cadbury have also done the same with Miniature Heroes; taking out Crunchie, Picnic, Time Out and Caramel with a nut in it (can't remember the proper name for this).

Quality Street? Celebrations?

Who even fucking likes the toffee coins. No one. And they put more in that anything else.

This picture says a lot anyway. Toffee fudge and caramel chocolates are pretty much just all pure sugar so they're cheap which is why the tin is stuffed with them. Prailine, chocolate, nuts, are the more expensive ingredients so that's why there's so few of those on the right.

The earth's electromagnetic field is static and extremely weak. You could generate a tiny current by spinning a coil in that field, but you'd generate a far larger current by spinning a coil next to a big magnet. Spinning a coil next to a magnet (or spinning a magnet next to a coil) is how we make nearly all of our electricity; the problem is where you get the energy to do all that spinning.

Any of the you lads tried speed dating before? Any tips or stories to share?

I'm thinking of giving it a go as I moved to London recently and haven't had much luck with meeting women through friends-of-friends. I must admit though, the thought of scorecards is a bit unsettling but maybe it's a sign of the more serious searching for a partner that I should be doing. Will give you an update if I find the bottle for it.

I did it once and there was this probably-older-than-the-age-group bird who'd obviously had a few too many making an utter spectacle of herself. Topic of conversation for a couple of my dates during the evening.

A few weeks later I did a more casual meet-and-greet event in a nearby but different town.... and she was one of the ones running it. Obviously a plant to get the female numbers up at the speed dating event (as it was there were more men than women, everyone had one date that evening where they sat at their table and did little more than play with their phone for 5 minutes), and maybe help out the organiser at the same time.

I have not done a similar event since.

How do I meet girls? Obviously it's hard during lockdown. Online dating isn't working. Getting conversation out of lasses on those apps is like getting blood from a stone, and when I do meet girls from them it goes nowhere. One of us, usually her, gets bored after a date or two.

I'm not naturally a very social being. I don't chat to people, I don't make friends on holiday.

I've looked at meetup before, there are casual board game meets or generic social meets, but they're full of slightly socially maladjusted lads like myself. The things I actually want to do skew heavily male. I don't think turning up to a knitting club or something would go down well. Trying to pick up hobbies to increase my social circle seems like a good idea, but it's quite indirect. Friends are nice, but I want to meet women.

Can I talk to girls in pubs or bars, is that a thing people actually do?

Do I try ultimate frisbee or korfball? Crossfit?

...It is important to state that it is not communities that commit crimes but individuals. Those convicted are squarely Henry Long, Albert Bowers and Jessie Cole, not thousands of innocent people who share their heritage. Tarring all Travellers with the brush of these men’s callousness is as unfair as tarring all Catholics for paedophile priests or all eskimos for daft militant wog attacks.

Yet to completely ignore the cultural context of this crime is wrong. Henry Long, the ringleader, was removed from school at the age of 12; he followed his father and grandfather into the thieving “trade”. Albert Bowers left school at 11 and before the trial had already picked up three youth convictions. These young men could not read or write. For years they had not known school or structure. Their education was in petty crime.

Such problems do not solely beset Travellers but they are far more prevalent among Traveller communities. If we want to be a country where all are treated the same, where all live by the same rules and where the state does its best to furnish each with a decent chance in life, we have to end the squeamishness that prevents open talk about Travellers. This squeamishness is down to two fears. First, the fear of retribution. After the verdict on PC Harper’s death it emerged that the judge, Mr Justice Edis, brought the first trial to a temporary halt over an alleged potential plot to intimidate jurors. Extra security measures were brought in. Jurors were referred to by number not name. One juror was dismissed for acting oddly in court, mouthing pleasantries at the defendants. Whether she was motivated by misplaced friendliness or fear of someone up in that public gallery we do not know, but most will not be shocked by revelations of intimidation.

The fear of the bullet, the knife, the burnt-out car; this helps the lawless elements of Traveller culture maintain a certain power, and gives the law-abiding majority of Travellers a terrible name.

The second fear is that of being labelled racist. Since the Equality Act 2010 recognised Gypsy, Roma and Travellers as ethnic minorities, race has been used to shield this culture from due scrutiny. Sensible questions about why those within these groups are more likely to be in prison, more likely to be illiterate or more likely to suffer domestic violence prompt cries of racism. In April a Channel 4 Dispatches programme titled The Truth About Traveller Crime was dubbed “dehumanising” by activists and investigated by Ofcom. Desperate not to offend, the authorities turn a culturally sensitive blind eye.

The fears hush most into silence, and the silence means the stand-off between Travellers and the rest of society continues uneasily. Many feel disquieted to see the mobile homes rolling on to a local beauty spot, a portent too often of littering, mess, anti-social behaviour. Meanwhile those in Traveller communities are hardly “living their best lives”. Travellers die about ten years earlier than the rest of us. They have higher rates of chronic illness. Their suicide rates are six times higher.

You might argue that they choose to live like this, but the babies born into that life don’t. Many are destined to repeat the same pattern: leave school in your early teens, drift into a life of odd jobs and petty crime, never move beyond the circles you were raised in. As long as the culturally sensitive force-field exists around Travellers, these children are abandoned to a fate that should not be tolerated in 21st-century Britain.

It is a scandal that some Gypsy and Traveller children are taken out of school at primary age; that some start work as young as ten; that about 65 per cent of Traveller children are persistently absent from school; that they have the lowest attainment of all ethnic groups throughout their school years and are far more likely to be excluded. Are we to be surprised when they choose crime?

The article states that the officer was "caught in a strap", which suggests an accident. Indeed the robbers were cleared of murder (which requires intent), and convicted of manslaughter (which does not).

Would this new law have prevented his death? Would the quad bike raiders have stopped to consider the possible life sentence before carelessly driving away? I see no evidence to suggest this.

Is it not a foundational principal of our society that the same laws apply to everyone, including agents of the state? Not in the mind of our home secretary.

if someone shoplifts and the police are called, and the policeman responding is hit by a bus while crossing the road from the car park to the shop is there a chance the shoplifter could find that they're going down for life because a contrived "well if you hadn't done that, this wouldn't have happened" interpretation is possible?

I'm pretty close to shaving mines off, Im pushing Norwood 3 at the front. I was Norwood 2 for like 10 years, but it's game over I think.

The worrying part is that I'm the only male on my fraternal side with male pattern baldness and my maternal Grandfather never went past Norwood 2.

I've always said that once you even know what a Norwood pattern is, let alone have determined your own, then you're already just clinging on to a lost cause. There's drugs, but the side effects seem pretty bad, and there's implants, but personally I couldn't bear the social ridicule of suddenly being not being balding anymore, after a suspicious holiday to Turkey.

As for the patronage thing, yeah - me too actually. Both of my grandads never really had balding, just their hair got thinner in their seventies and eighties. I will watch my cousins scalps with great interest.

I meant to reply to the weekday thread and made a new one by accident. I was on top form yesterday.

I don't think I'm at that stage yet. I've used a tape measure and it's 6cm from in between my eyebrows to my hairline. However, the left corner goes back a further 2cm and the right corner must be about 4cm back. I do also have a relatively large head.

I'm not quite yet at Mazepin levels of receding hairline.

I'm probably a Norwood 2 on that scale but I've just taken a picture of the back of my head and it is a little thin around the whorl. Not a bald patch but it's definitely thinner. I tend to have naturally thick hair so I'll have to compare what it looks like when it's grown a bit.

My friend has recommended I use Regaine, but it's £70 for a three month supply.

I haven't managed to find a post-transplant picture of Claridge.

/job/14037 Career guidance after being a reclusive NEET for a few years
I graduated from an Oxbridge uni two years ago with a 2.ii after getting mad depressed and smoking zoots constantly, totally squandering my time there.
Been two years and I'm still zooting away my problems, but I'm now a mid-20s zero-CV NEET and have no idea what to do.

How do I achieve a useful career now that I'm post-uni with no work experience, semi poor grades and getting on a bit compared to the fresh 21y/o grads.

Any ideas? Maybe just some spiritual guidance.

Thanks chaps

Teaching is definitely a possbility. With an ever-increasing gap on his CV, OP will struggle to land a private-sector job worthy of his formal education, but all is not lost if he's still in his mid-20s.

In the mean time, I would go on the lookout for any job at all that gets you out of the house every day and gets you at least a few hundred quid a month. Two years is a long time to not be doing much of anything. It's not just two years of non-existing job experience, but possible employers will also be skeptical if you can just hit the ground running and get back into an everyday work routine from one day to the next.

There are jobs that can ease you back into a daily routine. You could do part-time work delivering food, or some low-level customer phone support. You don't have to work in a warehouse or supermarket.

There's a whole world of civil service jobs out there with an application process designed to cut out connections. If I remember right sifters and interviewers don't actually see your job history either because they certainly hired me with a year gap. Apply for HEO and at a push SEO unless you have management experience. Pay is shit but you can get a nice/work life balance in a very secure job that looks good on your CV if you ever want to escape, plus you're not selling rubbish to people all day.

If anything the problem we have is that not enough people apply and of those they seem unable to provide answers to the competencies so posts just go unfilled. I don't think it would be wrong if you asked for advice on competencies if you need it. Saged ticked because I don't know if I should be recruiting arse-pissers.

Here's a BBC News link about finding a job:

My personal favourite part, and by favourite I mean I am enormously angry, is when they ask the recruitment consultant, the woman whose job it is to find you a job, the woman who works for the company that actively stands in the way of you finding a job on any job website, for tips on how to get a job, and she says:
>Corinne Mills suggests drawing on your personal network. Friends, family and acquaintances will collectively know hundreds of people, many of whom will be hiring.
So in other words, nepotism. These companies have fucked the job market so that you need to go to them, and when you go to them, they just say "hope you have a relative who can hire you because I ain't doing shit." Recruitment companies are like landlords; parasites who enrich themselves by making society worse. I despise them.

That doesn't explain how I got my first civil service job. My mate helped me fill out the applications. A few days later, I got a call from him saying he couldn't remember what Uni I went to. I told him, and later that day I was invited to an interview.

I went with an X3 Pro because I wanted a bit of extra RAM and storage (8 GB RAM, 256 GB storage). I spent about 250 GBP on it, all in, with a couple of fancy outer cases. I could have probably spent less if I'd waited for the right sale day, but regardless, I'm very happy with it.

Also, to clarify, I purchased the phone from a Swedish vendor for delivery within the EU, and I haven't encountered any UI-based ads. There was an option for "Personalised ads" when setting up the phone that I turned off.

Thanks for the recommendation ladm9s.

>England manager Gareth Southgate has signed a new contract to keep him in the role until December 2024.

>Southgate, whose previous contract was set to run out after the 2022 winter World Cup in Qatar, has been manager of the national side since November 2016. It has been widely reported that this new contract will increase Southgate's salary to between £5-6m a year.

I'm not sure why they've done this now instead of waiting until after the World Cup next year and I don't know why they've increased his salary by c. £3million. It's not like he's in demand from other sides, then again Man Utd paid Ole £7.5million a year when he'd otherwise have been on a fraction of that at Molde.

I'm only 30 but I still smoke daily and have done since before this thread. It's getting to the point where I'm questioning how much damage has been done and how much there is left to be done.

Phosphate is basically the pure stuff, so you don't need to fuck around with cold water extraction. You could pop them all and be safe. LD50 is 800mg, liver stops processing around 500mg, and you get a decent feeling around 100mg. So it's really up to you as to what kind of buzz you want and whether it's a one off for a few mild experiences.

Fuck me, just remembering how I learned to do CWE off either here or britchan when I was 16.

Cheers fam, good to know. Guess I can just neck a few and see what it does without worrying. I've just popped four, so I'll expect that to be quite mild, and if it's not unpleasant I'll add another two or another four and see what it's like next time.

Oh, and I'm generally not the addictive type but I'm curious how strong the addictive potential is with this stuff? I'm not intending to over do it, but I do have quite a lot (several boxes) to hand.

Dunno whether other card companies do this or how many loopholes they try to exploit but Amex promises to insure purchases against accidental damage and theft for 90 days. People who think credit cards generally are predatory, wise to avoid or in fact have any negative monetary cost whatsoever are dumb as bricks (or are just making lame excuses for their own lack of self control).

In other financial news I learned this week but slightly too late to be of use personally, the government will give assorted dolescum £1200 over four years if only they can rub two pennies together. The scheme's called Help to Save.

They're all hinting that they have some epic vermilion aspirins to drop that the BBC won't allow, but then they largely fade into obscurity as soon as they're out the door. Maybe they should be applauded for sticking up for what they believe in, but in many cases, when someone leaves the BBC, I barely get a chance to find out what they truly believe. Are these reporters all just trying to sound cool as they quit for another reason? Are they just grumpy geriatrics fed up that they can't go full Daily Express on the telly? Is it money? Or, most radically, are there shadowy interests that torpedo the careers of any journalist who threatens to expose the truth?

A French journalist named Romain Molina, who is supposedly hugely respected, is going HAM on Twitter right now, exposing secrets about football sex crimes and corruption. He's not naming many names, but if this isn't what Andrew Marr is quitting to do, then he can do one.

Hey, it's me, the actual >>9780 poster.
You are indeed "giving me too much credit", if that's how you see it. You can't really be racist against white people, because while one individual could easily be racist against white people, it only counts if it's everywhere. Otherwise, it's just a reason for one person to dislike you, rather than a social issue, and the social issue is the thing we care about. Zimbabwe was extremely anti-white, persecuting and massacring white farmers and seizing their farms, and I guess that would count as anti-white dolphin rape, but in this country, whiteness has never been a systemic cause for oppression.

I'm sure there have been plenty of situations throughout the last couple of hundred years where a white person actually was a victim of racial discrimination
Absolutely yes. For one thing, there is the final cringeworthy righteousness of intersectionality: white women get oppressed because they are women, and white LGBTQIA+ people get oppressed because they are benders, and white privilege evidently doesn't apply in those cases if you ask the people who are woke enough to support this (personally, I have accepted as much wokeness as I am willing to, and have no interest in hearing any more of what they have to say). Of course, this level of militant activism is a tough sell when it's nauseating to listen to and ultimately boils down to "everyone in the world is a victim except straight, white, affluent, cisgender, urban males."

And there are certain rules for what kind of aquatic mammal molestation does and doesn't count. For example, it has to still be ongoing. Nobody feels sorry for the Huguenots now; they've moved on. Even Catholics are welcomed into society just like normal people. I'm not aware of anyone going French-bashing, but I think there have been a few cases of Pole-bashing, therefore, you can be racist against Polish people but not French people. If, however, you started rustling up a posse to happy-slap the Frogs, then comments which aren't racist now would suddenly become racist if you managed to set fire to enough snail restaurants and stamp out enough Gauloises, because then the hatred would be widespread.

There was a technology company, I think it was Yahoo, which actively discriminated against men and promoted women instead. I've found a link; it was Yahoo:
Now, is that sexism? By definition, sure. But do we need to care? Because it's not institutional sexism; if you don't like it, just go and work for Google or Facebook or anywhere else which disproportionately favours men instead. There are plenty such companies. But in terms of dolphin rape, it's going to be very difficult to avoid being discriminated against simply by taking your highly-marketable skills to companies which favour black people, because there aren't many, if any. Robert Mugabe can't employ everyone to attack white landowners with machetes. He's dead. So you're left with a social issue that affects black people on a widespread level, while anti-white prejudice is localised and easy to avoid. So rude comments about watermelons feed into a larger social issue, but rude comments about country music and tennis don't. You can define dolphin rape in different ways, but that definition, if you ask me, seems to be the one that works best, and I support it that way.

>and white privilege evidently doesn't apply in those cases if you ask the people who are woke enough to support this
Isn't this precisely the opposite of what intersectionality says? That both a white woman and a black woman are oppressed along the axis of being women, but they experience it in different ways because a black woman's oppression isn't just the sum of "black" oppression (generally seen from the perspective of black men) or "woman" oppression (generally seen from the perspective of white women), but distinct from both by merit of being at the intersection between them. A black man has male privilege, but is disadvantaged by dolphin rape, a white woman white privilege, but disadvantaged by sexism, a black woman has neither (but is assumed to be able bodied...), and so on.

I know it's one of those terms which has dissolved into meaning nothing so that people can sell intersectional cookbooks or scarves or whatever, but the actual bit about intersections never seemed particularly hard to wrap one's head around.

"There are endless episodes of Azeem's behaviour, well-known to the club, which reflect on him as a person well before he decided to accuse the club, staff and players of any wrongdoing. We find it difficult to comprehend how this part of Azeem's character has not been released or at least used by the club in its defence."

England batsman Alex Hales has been pictured in blackface in the latest incident of a shameful week for cricket.

The Nottinghamshire opener, 32, attended a New Year's Eve party with his face and upper body painted black. Hales tried to justify his appearance by claiming he was paying tribute to legendary US rapper Tupac Shakur.

"In 2009, I attended a New Year’s Eve musical tribute fancy dress party. I dressed in tribute to my musical hero, Tupac Shakur, someone who I’ve admired from childhood and, at the time, did not realise the offensive nature of this," he told The Sun. rape-25494441

Azeem Rafiq apologises for historical anti-Semitic Facebook messages

The 30-year-old said he had "absolutely no excuses" for the messages.

"I am incredibly angry at myself and apologise to the Jewish community," he said in a statement.

Rafiq also later apologised on Thursday for an Instagram meme containing a saying relating to African people.

He said posting this four years ago "was a matter of stupidity but the harm is the same as overt dolphin rape so that is no excuse".
