/news/16317 Ryanair's new hand luggage policy slated on social media

Ryanair’s latest change to its cabin baggage policy has triggered plenty of criticism on social media.

Europe’s biggest low-cost airline has reduced the amount that passengers can take through security to the departure gate without paying extra. Instead of one large and one small bag, travellers are restricted to one “mid-sized” bag.

To carry anything more substantial, they will either need to buy Priority Boarding or pay a fee for checking in luggage.

From the looks of it they are treating it like a real currency rather than an asset, and as so speculative as to qualify as gambling (which is in my opinion rather generous of them), but with qualifier that "Whether any profit or gain is chargeable or any loss is allowable will be looked at on a case-by-case basis taking into account the specific facts" which is such an extraordinarily nebulous open-ended statement I'm amazed a body as litigious as HMRC would ever have the gall to print it.

Under the Proceeds of Crime Act, casinos are required to record any transaction of over £2000 and verify the customer's identity. Cash under the mattress in any real quantity is riskier and less useful than you might think. HMRC and SOCA have some sophisticated and wide-reaching analytics tools; if the information from your tax returns, bank transactions and credit reference files suggest that you're living beyond your legitimate means, they can confiscate the lot unless you can prove where it came from.

I make good money anyway and have lots of investments, it wouldn't be that notable for me to have extra money lying about. I can go to the casino and 'win' £1999 every night, that's fine.

Or, I can do what everyone else does and open a dodgy takeaway that makes a steady, convenient stream of income.

Albeit not very likely. It will probably raise some flags if you tell them that.

Creative tax accounting is a simple game of numbers and probabilities really. You have to think about the likelihood of your tax fraud being exposed. While it is true that your net profits can be much greater that way, you have to factor in the repercussions if they spot it. So it's kind of a risk-reward thing. Being an honest citizen means you pay more taxes, but it also means HMRC will leave you alone.

/news/16632 Russia "They were asking for it" on dangerous Ukrainian Tugboats

>Tensions between Moscow and Kiev have escalated after Russia fired on and seized three Ukrainian vessels and their crews in the Kerch strait separating Crimea from the Russian mainland.

>The Russian foreign ministry accused Kiev of coordinating with the US and the EU in a “planned provocation” aimed at securing further anti-Moscow sanctions as the Ukrainian president, Petro Poroshenko, asked parliament to impose martial law.

>The UN security council held an emergency session on the crisis on Monday but could not even agree on the agenda. A Russian agenda phrased in a way that implied Ukrainian culpability was voted down, so the Russian deputy ambassador, Dmitry Polyanskiy, refused to take part in the scheduled debate which followed.

I suppose the Russian government would prefer it if the Ukrainians began dragging their ships over land, Werner Herzog style, whenever they wanted to get back to port.

The most mind boggling part of the Chef story, which I only learned recently, is that it came out that Issac Hayes himself never made the statement about wanting to leave - it was done by his entourage, also Scientologists. Hayes had suffered a stroke at this point so he wasn't able to really do anything about it.

I wonder at what point these celebrities look around and realise that they're trapped. Years too late, I imagine.

/news/16560 Brexit: Antidepressant prescriptions increased in wake of EU referendum

Antidepressant prescribing in England rose after the UK voted to quit the European Union, in stark contrast to widespread decreases in the prescribing of other medicines, a study suggests.

The researchers from King’s College London (KCL) said more should be done to bolster mental health services in the wake of major national events, such as elections and financial crises.

When they looked at this effect in the wake of the June 2016 referendum, they found that antidepressant use continued to rise in the wake of the result, but at a slower rate. However, prescribing for other types of drugs, which had also been increasing every year, suddenly began to drop, although the reasons why are not clear.

Beats me, I never took psych meds in my life. I only know that the old country is a fucking drug supermarket, and that a lot of people there like to make pills cocktails.

Italy didn't look to me like a "drug supermarket" the last time it was there, but then, that was over ten years ago.

The only thing that struck me was that literally about 70 to 80 percent of Italians that we saw were smoking. Maybe that's changed, but it was really noticeable back then. Even groups of fifteen-year-old teenagers that you saw in the streets nearly all had fags in their mouths.

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.

/news/16485 UK austerity has inflicted 'great misery' on citizens, UN says

The UK government has inflicted “great misery” on its people with “punitive, mean-spirited, and often callous” austerity policies driven by a political desire to undertake social re-engineering rather than economic necessity, the United Nations poverty envoy has found.

Philip Alston, the UN’s rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, ended a two-week fact-finding mission to the UK with a stinging declaration that levels of child poverty were “not just a disgrace, but a social calamity and an economic disaster”, even though the UK is the world’s fifth largest economy,

About 14 million people, a fifth of the population, live in poverty and 1.5 million are destitute, being unable to afford basic essentials, he said, citing figures from the Institute for Fiscal Studies and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. He highlighted predictions that child poverty could rise by 7% between 2015 and 2022, possibly up to a rate of 40%.

“It is patently unjust and contrary to British values that so many people are living in poverty,” he said, adding that compassion had been abandoned during almost a decade of austerity policies that had been so profound that key elements of the postwar social contract, devised by William Beveridge more than 70 years ago, had been swept away.

OS 9 uses co-operative multitasking, whereby the OS waits for each individual process to `give up control' of the CPU so it can allow another to run. If the program doesn't give up control, then you're up shit creek.

Windows 95 onwards used pre-emptive multitasking (at least in 32-bit mode), where the OS can forcibly wrest control of the CPU from a program.

If the Onion style photoshop didn't give it away, you already don't belong here.

+10 for the reference, though.

And I thought the same thing, but upon checking its veracity I learnt that the image is actually real. However, it's from an anti-government protest in Syria, not ISIS occupied territory. The protesters were trying to make a point about Assad being as bad as ISIS, and weren't burning kids either, for the record.

If ISIS are so innocent why don't you go live with them?

Probably because they've been eradicated so thoroughly by Russian backed Syrian and Jordanian forces, to the point they are hiding in the Syrian polar and have been forced to recruit people with special needs, that they have no home he could live with them in.

I'm right in thinking I shouldn't do acid if I'm not in the right state of mind or feeling very sad emotionally, aren't I? Can't really see the appeal of being on something within what's basically the same week of a loved pet dying.

I know this post sounds like total bollocks but I just need some reassurance, I am very convinced I don't want to be on anything like acid right after experiencing this.

Acid is one of those drugs that doesn't make you happy or sad, it just amplifies how you're already feeling. Turning it up to 11, so to speak. If you're not feeling bloody great already I wouldn't drop acid at all.

Another lad mentioned set and setting, but don't forget a lot of people "candy flip" - dropping mdma and then dropping the lsd at the peak of the mdma high. That way your set and setting for the LSD are basically "holy shit I feel amazing and I totally love EVERYONE right now omg".

I figured as much, I've had a successful trip on it in which I was prepared and in a good place and good setting, I think my mind's just been racing over recent events and how that's tied in with me almost getting ahold of some again. Cheers.

As someone who's taken prophetic amounts of acid at times, I can definitely say it's the kind of drug you should only take if you're 100% certain you want to, whether it simply be a mood thing or your environment or anything like that. But I'd say the same about any drug.

That said, I've always found the weight of those downer trips to be overstated. It can be stressful, certainly anxiety inducing, but you usually come out the other side unscathed, or even strengthened by the experience. I've always been a depressive though, so if you're not quite so used to handling sadness or uncomfortable self reflection, you might not be able to deal with it.

I definitely don't recommend the candy flip. If you try and trick yourself into an upper you're asking for some nasty karma and acid is the kind of drug that will deliver. It's always the things you don't expect that seem to take on significance, as you probably know.

Yeah, true.

I'm really not big on uppers, MDMA was fun when I was much younger but it's such a 'superficial' experience that the payoff just isn't worth it. I'm generally not big on stimulants and I'll smoke weed perhaps once every three weeks (maybe even less now) and have so far spaced out my psychedelic usage.

I guess for now I'll just wait until the next opportunity to do acid, for the better.

/mph/4248 Haunted alternator
Evening, friends.

My old alternator was on the way out for a while and it finally bit the dust a few weeks back. I got a new one fitted at a garage that was recommended to me, but ever since then my lights have been flickering when the engine is running.

I measured the voltage on the battery with the engine running idle and it was pulsing between about 13.5 and 14.5 V. It also seems to be tied to the engine temperature, as it becomes less noticable when the car has warmed up. Tonight was a cold one and my power steering wasn't working until a few minutes into my journey. I've had the same thing before I got the new alternator, but it came on with the red battery warning light on previously.

Earlier I tried swapping the battery out with a new one, but that didn't seem to fix anything. Does this just sound like a loose connection somewhere, or a bad ground?

always suspect ground, when things get weird.
Also worth checking the connector on the back of the alternator - if it's a 3-pin crimp one, they can fail quite subtly, and any discontinuity will fuck the alternator quickly, as the voltage will spike if the load vanishes.
