Home-lads, how do you know that someone isn't phrogging in your home right now, living with you without you knowing it?

Is there anything that would alert you to the presence of someone else in your home like a hidden camera in the kitchen?

And as >>14558 points out, once the sun really starts to cook the earth in the coming years, you will all be lining up to trade your women and ammunition for a tall cool plastic cup of blue raspberry.

I'm considering cycling to work and locking my bike up at the overground station. It's in West London.

The bike itself is a 10 year old hybrid only worth £~150 these days.

I have a Kryptonite d-lock and a puny combo lock.
How likely is it to get nicked?

The safest place to park your bike is next to a nicer bike with a worse lock.

The only bicycle locks that will actually stop a half-serious thief are the Kryptonite New York Fahgettaboudit Mini and the Abus Granit X-plus Mini 54. They're genuinely a pain in the arse to get open. Anything else can be popped open in about 15 seconds with a pair of long-handled bolt cutters or a bottle jack.

Some of the beefier motorbike chains will stop a professional thief, but they're hugely expensive and impractically heavy. Cable locks and folding locks are useless, chain locks are surprisingly easy to cut (they give the thief too much room to manoeuvre) and D-locks can only really be trusted if they've got at least a 13mm case-hardened shackle and they're just barely big enough to fit around the bike and post.

Fortunately you don't need to make your bike impossible to steal, just less attractive than the available alternatives. If there are two bikes on the same stand of similar value, a thief will go for the one with the worse lock. If there are two bikes on the same stand with equally good locks, a thief will go for the one with that is easiest to sell.

Making your bike harder to sell at a reasonable price is just as valuable as getting a better lock. Scrape off the decals, file off the brand names on the components, give the frame a really ugly re-spray with a rattle can. If you make your bike less attractive to a random bloke in a pub, you make it less attractive to a thief.

/fat/4996 Quitting Smoking
I'm going to attempt to quit smoking and was wondering if any of you had tips or experiences to share? We did have a thread a few years back but it seems to have disappeared from the catalogue, though from what I remember Allen Carr's book was highly recommended.

My stats if they help put things into context:
7 a day on weekdays, 4 on weekends. 9 years of smoking.

The discrepancy on the weekdays is that I have a work routine of smoking during my breaks. There's a question there of what I'm supposed to do if I'm not smoking.

That's an interesting hypothetical. If there were a magical alcohol-free scotch that tasted exactly the same, would I drink it?

If it tasted exactly the same, as in, somehow had the alcoholic taste without the other effects like Star Trek synthehol, if anything I would probably drink much more.

Two weeks later and I can report that I'm noticeably eating more but also that I've become much more popular on dating apps. The latter is as useful as a chocolate teapot at the moment but it's nice to learn that was the only thing holding me back. Unless Big-Aubergine boosts your profile when you quit.

What's worked for me is keeping score of the days and not wanting to break the streak. Last night I saw a couple smoking cigarettes and calmed the urge to go buy a pack by noting that I was near the two-week mark. Also drumstick squashies taste like shit now that I've stopped smoking.

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.

How come it seems like almost every high street shop is either in administration or on the brink of it?

I'm curious how squatting rights intersect with planning rights, and if that's getting abused. If some interest wanted an industrial area turned into a residential development, could they secretly fund a commune to live in that area and "allow" them to build and develop amenities for a decade and then turn around and "buy them out" and go ham because now it's residential?

You could in theory, but you wouldn't really need to. The new reforms to the planning system give the presumed right to convert most commercial properties to residential use. Council planning departments have a very short list of grounds to object to such a conversion, otherwise they have to give you permission.

If you wanted to develop on a large scale you'd need to jump through some hoops with regards to transport impacts, your development needs to have natural light in every habitable room, but otherwise there's really nothing they can do to stop you.

I'm currently looking for a suitable light industrial unit to convert, because I've always wanted a house with three-phase power and a loading dock.

You're still constrained by building standards, though. If you're planning to build hutches for students, they have to be able to stretch their legs out and express natural behaviours such as shitting in buckets. It's a low bar.

It's going to be fascinating to see some of the horrendous conversions. My local council already (8 years ago?) converted a load of their city centre offices into student hovels in a strange arms-length deal. The conversions done with cardboard, string and piss buckets will be much more fun.
I'm pretty much in favour of it as a plan - have people actually live in city centres again, it's just the implementation that's going to be grim at times.

Opera now categorises its VPNs by continent rather than country, so I can't just pop on a UK VPN and go to iPlayer. Free proxy IPs from the internet yield only unstable connections.

I tend to enjoy those "niche" competitions a lot more than the more mainstream events as for the first couple of events at least the former tend to fit closer to the modern olympic idea of "amateur athletes" that's been completely lost in the established disciplines. While there's undeniable beauty in seeing athletes perform asymptotically closer to the maximum the human body can achieve, I find more fun and joy in seeing a slightly scrappy performance by people who are quite good and really try hard.

The Paralympics is outstanding in every conceivable way. My all-time favourite sporting moment is from the Paralympics (the 200m in London 2012; I forget the name of the disability category but you'll know it when you see it). Also, they're all niche sports; it's the ultimate hipster tournament. Sure, sprinting and hurdles and cycling are pretty generic, but not when you have no legs.

I've got a pair of Adidas Gazelle Spezials which are a couple of years old. They're in great condition, but the orange suede has faded a fair amount. I'm thinking of re-dyeing them and touching up the suede myself.

There's a fairly vibrant market for people touching up classic Adidas trainers, and I've dyed denim plenty of times in the past, so I'm confident in giving it a go, but I just wanted to ask you pooves if you've any experience customising trainers, especially suede?

I'd already resigned myself to replacing them when I'm back in the UK later this year, so I don't particularly mind if it all goes tits up.

I have always been of the opinion that England needs to lose a group-stage match to remind them that it is actually possible to lose. They always smash the qualifying stages against Albania and San Marino, to the point where it feels to me like they forget to compete in the actual tournament. They show up under the impression that they have already won, and just trot around like it's a victory lap and that beating Iceland is a foregone conclusion. And then look what always happens.

Then I caught myself and realised I was doing two very strange things. First of all, I had magnified a drawing of an ejaculating penis and some testicles, and some swear words, and had been poring over them for an hour or so, and all in an attempt to smash dolphin rape. There was a decorator in the kitchen. What if he came in and saw what I was doing? How would I explain that this was part of my work and that I was a professional writer, not just someone who enlarged drawings of penises and testicles and sat staring at them all day on a screen while only wearing pants and a T-shirt? Would he recognise what I was doing as a form of “work”?

The second strange thing was more bewildering and more telling. For a moment, I realised that I was trying to make the word, whatever it was, look plausibly like the word “black” in my mind’s eye, so that the column I had already filed would make sense. I was every rightwing commentator’s idea of the liberal comedian, looking for evidence of prejudice where there was in fact only an ejaculating penis and some swear words and testicles. For a moment, I wanted that little corner of Manchester to be a worse place than it was, so that my joke would work better. But yes, although the word could be “black” it could also be “sock”. Or even “bag”. I amended the online edition of the column to allow for doubt, which made it weirdly funnier, relieved that on Sunday I was going to camp in a dense woodland for a week, beyond the reach of the internet, so I would have no idea what social media made of my confusion.

Nice bit of introspection from Are Stew.

/fat/5828 Tapering off SSRIS (Citalopram)
I have been taking 10mg Citalopram for around a year now and would like to come off safely. I've been pretty stupid about my intake of the drug, I regularly go 2-3 days without it (purposefully, I can't stand the side effects), but now I want to come off sensibly.

I was thinking of just doing 10mg every 3 days for 2 weeks then every 4 days for 2 weeks then stopping?

The half life of citalopram is meant to be about 35hours, this means that even though you go 2-3 days without a dose, there's probably a bit left in your body that's enough to prevent withdrawal symptoms starting (I discovered with sertraline -half life of about 26 hours- that the withdrawal symptoms only started after about 2-3 days after going cold turkey and were bad enough that I had to start taking it again). So I think it would be a good idea for you to try and just take a tablet every 3 days and see how you feel after a couple of weeks. Then if possible try and split the dose by half and keep on taking it every 3 days for a while.

Ultimately you can try and taper the dose down so slowly that you don't notice, or you can try and cut down until you notice withdrawal effects and just take a small enough dose to stave them off for a little longer.

The doctor has told you to go cold turkey, and she's probably right to say that the withdrawal effects aren't dangerous, but whilst not dangerous they can be incredibly unpleasant and last for weeks after you stop taking it so tapering off is better.

What's the best hedge against a global recession or a decade of stagflation following covid, outside of the property that we can't afford or REITs?

I'm hatching an idea that it might be investments in transportation infrastructure to address supply bottlenecks - China being capable of mass producing the low-end consumer goods that will keep people spending even as prices rise (aside from cars that are fucked). My other idea might be the space sector as an area of new economic growth using something like SSIT to balance out declines elsewhere.

/lab/4929 BODMAS, PEDMAS whatever
Can I get a discussion here? I was never taught order of operations, not at primary school, not at secondary, not when I did A-level maths, not even when I spent 5+ years at an engineering design company doing beam and wind loadings.

But I see it all the time with the yanks wanking over the idea of people misinterpreting a poorly structured equation. And scoffing at any who dared not know about it.

Anyone else in the same boat as me?

We already had this discussion here a few weeks ago.

if you do what you were told in school you follow bodmas which means you multiply and divide before addition and subtraction, but in the real word people who do maths for a living always write out equations in a way that the order or operations is obvious. (And if you write formulae in excel you just use brackets absolutely fucking everywhere so nothing is left to chance)

I like drawing up tables of video game data and using Excel to try strategies based on the numbers. Essentially playing the game without any of the fun. But I am deeply wrong so you're spot on.

About 15 years ago it wasn't uncommon to hear the saying "[person] is in a little boat, all on their own."

You just don't hear it anymore.

I can't remember the last time I heard someone say "oh, bollocks" for something going wrong.

Is bollocks dying out?

The Irish use it to mean someone nasty or unpleasant, much how we'd use prick. "He's a bollocks" never fails to get a giggle out of me.

Prick is probably used even less these days.

I worked with someone who'd say "you can bollocks" instead of fuck off.

Almost all young women in the UK have been sexually harassed, survey finds

Virtually all young women in the UK have been subjected to sexual harassment, according to a survey from UN Women UK, which warns that most women have lost faith that the abuse will be dealt with. Among women aged 18-24, 97% said they had been sexually harassed, while 80% of women of all ages said they had experienced sexual harassment in public spaces.

Should we, as a gender, be doing more to tackle sexual harassment?

>Patel said she was “determined to give the police the powers they need to crack down on perpetrators and carry out their duties to protect the public whilst providing victims with the care and support they deserve”.

Well done Priti, now when I speak out against your repeated efforts to increase police powers, I'll be labelled a sexist. n1 m8

They already pulled that one on Labour for some stuff that supposedly protects women in the policing bill.

Pretty consistently, about three quarters of homicides in England and Wales are committed against males.

I don't know why it's never occurred to me that they only cynically push this shit as an excuse for the ever creeping tendrils of authoritarianism, but it makes sense. I actually thought the government was full of cloud cuckoo land fisherfolk who think making a law will stop wolf-whistling.

Lads. Something happened to two of the carpet tiles in my current flat, and I'd like to replace them rather than lose my deposit. I carefully took one up and found no manufacturer identification, just the number '50718' printed on the back. Googling "50718" "carpet tile" gets me sweet fuck all.

I'd rather not alert the landlord of this, so before I go asking for new carpet tiles from them, can anyone help me ID this?

Thanks lads. Thads.

That looks really fine as a repair - no landlord is going to complain about that.

Well, from one cock up to another. A routine lightbulb change has gone tits up. I fucking hate these cunting downlighter things. It's now hanging out of the ceiling at an angle, the lightbulb is just flopping around inside it, and if I pull straight down I can hear the plasterboard start to strain, and I'd rather not put a massive hole in my ceiling. If I try and push it back up it just falls down to this position here.

The spring loaded 'wings' appear to be twisted from what little I can see.

Is this something I can call the landlord to sort out, or will they say it's my fuckup and I'll have to pay an electrician to come sort out?

/news/34746 Fingerless Climber Missing

A celebrated South Korean climber who lost his fingers to frostbite 30 years ago has gone missing during his descent from a mountain in laplanderstan.

Kim Hong-bin had just scaled the 26,400ft (8047m) high Broad Peak in the Karakoram mountains before he is thought to have fallen into a crevasse.

The climb made the 57-year-old the first disabled person to scale all the world's tallest mountains.

An initial search failed to locate him and a large operation is being planned.

Mr Kim, who had all his fingers amputated after suffering severe frostbite while climbing in Alaska in 1991, reached the summit of Broad Peak on Sunday as part of an expedition organised by a small group, the Korea Herald reported.
