It is arguably the single most important thing when it comes to anything not black and white. Showing your working is how you justify yourself and exhibit that you've used reason and logic to reach your conclusion.

I'm not really talking about covers anymore but books which won't stay in one genre bug me. It's why I don't like urban fantasy and magical realism.

Then there are books I think of having Scooby Doo plots, which are billed as gently creepy horror but then everything ends up having a rational explanation. Even if it seems perfectly engrossing while I'm reading it, the ending makes me just not know what to make of it.

/b/420821 Uncle Boris
I've seen Boris Johnson while strolling through Birmingham, he was directing a pitiful Remain rally. I never thought that he was so short, he's even shorter than me and grotesquely obese. Also, he acts and speaks like a retard. There were two (2) armed security agents with him, but they were more interested in chatting with the tourists than in guarding him. He just looked like an useless, obese, mentally damaged old uncle, the one that you pretend to listen to in a family gathering to humour him. He just looked obsolete, useless, the kind of person that will be forgotten five minutes after his funeral, it's difficult to explain. Sage for bad English and confused thought patterns.

One of my friends used to work part time for a catering service, and one time, they were hired for a campaign event for Gordon Brown's 2010 election campaign. He got to meet Gordon Brown in person in the VIP area, where Gordon Brown had a quick chat with all the staff. My friend said he quite honestly never met a person who was as dull, boring and wooden as him.

Calling them 'gentlemen terrorists' is unfair to the people they've harmed and killed. For every fuck-off city centre wrecking bomb they phoned in to warn about there were proper awful acts they performed.

Loyalist paramilitaries were extra cunts in my opinion (and I'm from a unionist family), nothing more than a collection of violent goons.
While there were very legitimate concerns about the Irish state until the past few decades, the shambles that it was doesn't really compare to oppressive policies enacted in the north after partition. I'd like to think that had people got past their prejudices and allowed Catholics to properly integrate into NI in the first place that a lot of the subsequent mess would've found nothing to spark it, but of course prejudice is too much of a powerful political tool for that to have ever happened.

I'm not really an IRA sympathiser, but they had something to fight for initially.

These days though the constant whinging from Sinn Fein and trendy republican persecution complex memes are mostly a load of wank. But whinging is the primary political driver on all sides of NI politics so it's not going to end any time soon.

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.

>Many Britons feel they have to watch the pennies after recent inflation rises and years of flatlining wages.
This extends to their supermarket shop, with four in 10 people reporting they are concerned about the cost of food.
Against this backdrop, grocery giant Tesco has joined the discount retailers, which the launch of "value-orientated" chain Jack's.
Yet in relative terms, the British grocery shop remains one of the cheapest in the world.

IMO the article can be summed up as
>You don't know yer born, lad.
When in fact, I do. I grew up in communist Poland, I know what hunger and actual propaganda look like and this reads like the shit my Primary School teachers used to chat bollocks about. We got told people in Germany were poor and had no food and that, actually, we were quite well off in comparison because we had so much potatoes. My Dad managed to get out to Sweden to work, which was allowed in the 90s to avoid the draft, and he taught us it was bollocks.

Beware the BBC, lads. They're not the bastion of impartiality of old. It's misleading shit like this, I feel, that makes people want us out, as we recognise it for what it is and it gets their backs up. I'm a British citizen now, I have two passports, but if you see us heading back to shitholes like Lublin rather than tough it out, you're less appealing than a post-communist block country with endemic corruption in society.

Yeah, reporting that the UK has 8% cheaper food, when expressed as a share of income, than the EU average (which includes the likes of Greece) is of a similar ilk to claiming the third richest country in the world is in famine.

Slide the bullshit down with a spoonful of truthful sugar, m9. It's indicitive of the kind of thing I used to see a lot of. When prices shoot up, you'll see a lot of "realistic rebalancing of costs" and calls to "tighten our belts" now we're out of the evil EU. Medicines nd food being scarce will be the EU's fault, we're already seeing Jeremy Hunt liken them to Soviet despots. "Actually, a lot of countries support us but big bad Germany wont let them!" when that's catigorical bollocks. The BBC reports this stuff without challenging it already, the amount of limp-wristed soft questions Politicians get on the BBC nowadays is laughable.

You should see the stuff BBC Scotland gets up to as well, Ofcom has had to investiagte them for anti-SNP bias twice after they ruled themselves fair an impartial via internal processes.

That's all hauntingly familiar and what I would expect of the likes of the Daily Mail, not the BBC which is supposed to be a pillar of trust in our society.

To be fair, Poland as a whole is a lot different these days from what it was like in the 90s. Dodging down alleys to hide from the military police to avoid getting drafted was an every day occurrence for a lot of young men. Lublin was especially grim, but it at least had a vibrant underground music scene.

Me calling Lublin shit is the equivalent of Edinburgh natives calling it a shithole, when I think it's lovely.

The Novichok was found on the front door of the skripal's house.

There are photos of countless police officers guarding the house and standing right by their front door yet not a single one of them has fallen ill.

When litvinenko was poisoned there were countless images of him in his hospital bed, yet there are none of the skripals.

They supposedly fed ducks and birds after being contaminated but there have been no poisoned ducks. Not a single quacker.

There has been no visit from Theresa May or Amber Rudd to thank the staff at the hospital.

There has been no police appeal for people who know the skripals to come forward.

The police searched the skripals house an hour after they had collapsed and no officers have been contaminated in this way.

Neither has their post man.

Where does one find meaning and motivation in life if one never experienced the traditional reward mechanisms offered to regular folk - peer recognition, friends, relationships, and an active social/romantic life?

Seems to me that you're left with two motivating factors: passion for a particular field and independence (if you're currently on the parental/government tea). Independence can be achieved fairly easily with modest qualifications leading to a modest job, but genuine passion is a rare thing considering that most people are dabblers and hobbyists, and passion that leads to a fruitful career is even rarer.

I guess what I'm ultimately getting at is this: people integrated into society have a far easier time getting up for work in the morning, but where does that leave the people who were never able to integrate? Asking for a friend.

You're clearly an intelligent person. You might be socially dysfunctional or mentally ill, but you have the opportunity to earn the respect of others. You can develop skills and talents that people find enjoyable, interesting or useful. You don't have to change the world, you just need to contribute something of some value to someone.

You probably aren't nearly as dysfunctional as you think you are, but I'll take you on your word and assume for the sake of argument that integrating into the mainstream of society just isn't going to happen for you. Even if you can't be normal, you can still be somebody.

You can be the guy at the support group who always welcomes the newcomers. You can be a guy with a really useful database of anime trivia. You can carve intricate wooden figures on a YouTube channel with 800 loyal subscribers. You can be the guy at the open mic night who wears a shower curtain as a cape and reads out surreal poems. These things might be trivial, but they're also the things that make life worth living.

I think it's about finding an internal locus of evaluation rather than relying on the judgements of others. Life is, in the most brutal terms, a futile march towards death. No matter what we achieve in life, we all end up in the same place. No amount of money or fame or admiration can change that destination. If you can find something halfway enjoyable to do with your time on earth, you're doing better than most people.

I'd take issue with the idea that social drivers are necessarily the 'traditional' reward mechanism, that's just one of the many types human beings are capable of following if they so choose. The concept of a more fully-rounded idea of 'human flourishing' has been around for a long time. Take the idea of 'eudaimonia' from antiquity: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eudaimonia

To be completely honest with you, following just peer recognition and a rich social life and ignoring other important areas of fulfillment strikes me as a disastrous way to live. You'd be far more subject to peer pressure, you'd be brow-beaten into conforming to the most destructive and self-defeating trends, and you'd need to deprioritise or suppress any motivations that jeopardised your social position.

You're certainly not alone in feeling you haven't integrated because you don't accept certain social pressures (or indeed, because you weren't able or willing to meet whatever fluctuating standard was in place at the time). In fact, reading and thinking about philosophy in general may help you to understand your relationship to society. The fact you're intelligent and self-aware enough to step back and consider this relationship rather than dismissing the question out of hand in favour of immediate rewards is something you should celebrate, even if it does make your life a bit more complicated.

>I guess what I'm ultimately getting at is this: people integrated into society have a far easier time getting up for work in the morning, but where does that leave the people who were never able to integrate? Asking for a friend.

You're making quite a few assumptions there: that there is anyone who feels fully integrated into society, that they feel fulfilled because they're integrated, or that society is structured in a way that the integrated find it easier to get up for work in the morning.

You seem to have quite a specific idea of what 'fitting in' means, and I'd encourage you to think about and critique that. For example, fitting in where I live would probably have meant alcoholism and drugs from an early age.

You'd be right if the only one who fired was the Father, as he was the one attacked, but the son can't and wont be able to argue he felt his life was in danger and that is the only way shooting to kill in self defence is justified, no matter where you live in the USA.

Also, after the video went viral, they pulled them back in charged them further and increased their bail. Why would they have done that if not because they had enough evidence to prosecute?

There is also the fact the Father discharged his firearm after his son had incapacitated the guy and the fact they then proceeded to force the woman and another bystander to the ground at gunpoint despite them being unarmed.

My neighbour keeps chucking birdseed out to feed pigeons, to the extent that there's about thirty of the cunts perched on his roof all day long. His garden backs on to the residential parking square thing where I have three cars parked and get covered in shit all of the time. There's also three or four dead pigeons a week end up in there.

I've told him to pack it in, and he does for a week or so then gets right back at it. He's quite a nice bloke so I don't want to go mental at him quite yet, also I half want to buy his house so I want to keep him sweet.

Anyway, I'm obviously here to discuss the morality legality of pigeon murder. They're rodents, aren't they, so I can do whatever the fuck I want to them?

How would YOU best kill a flock of pigeons, for the most impact and plausible deniability? There was always an urban legend about if you feed them alkaseltzer they explode, is this true? I'd very much like them to explode. Other than that I have access to strong narcotics, how much speed do you think it takes to kill a bird? I could bake it into bread and scatter it about the car park. Do you think I could buy a bird disease off the dark web? How would you do it? Any ideas are welcome, I just wanted to spitball here. Blue sky thinking, the works.

My less genocidey approach would just be to buy bird seed and pile loads of it around the neighbours car at night, so they all just sit on top of his motor until he gets the point.

That kind of sounds like a morbidly obese pigeon.

Two chicken breasts are usually in the region of 500 grammes put together, which is more body mass than an entire adult pigeon will have.

Ultimatum from the missus. Our 5 month old puppy ran off, she spent 20 minutes chasing him down. Final straw, apparently.
She's livid.
Trying to work out what to do. Losing her temper and smacking him around is imho unacceptable. He's just a puppy, being a puppy. Why the fuck can't she see that (and keep him on a lead when he can escape, rather than allowing him to get into situations which piss her off so much. It's as if she likes the fight, or is too dumb to see the possibility?)
Granted, he can be a pain in the arse.
Ah, fuck's sake. I dunno. If this turns into a 'me or the dog' situation, I don't know which way I'll jump. I can't handle her temper.

I'm making a bit of an assumption here but I think you drink/drank in slightly less rough pubs than I did (and good for you).

There are certain situations where, if you don't get out at the very first sign of agro, then you are going to be in a fight whether you want to be or not.

Saying "Steady on old chap I really don't want to engage in fisticuffs today" doesn't really cut the mustard when you're about to get a half-full bottle of becks over the bonce.

> Excusing it as "boys will be boys" is unhelpful. It's one step away from "that guy's tall, he must be trying to fight me" or "that bloke wouldn't ask me to leave him alone except to annoy me so I'll give him what he wants". Let me get drunk in peace.

I think you've missed the point. I'm not trying to excuse anything, merely state that younger lads tend to be more pissed up and more testosterone fueled than some older guys who are more likely out for a quiet drink (but, again, not always).

The main problem is, no matter how much you want to be left alone for a quiet drink, there will be a certain percentage of pubs where someone will just not like the look of you from the moment you walk in - and before anyone preaches about flat roofed pubs I've seen someone almost get glassed in the neck in an All Bar One in fucking Chiswick if it weren't for the actions of two incredibly ballsy and no doubt underpaid security lads.

Actually it's clear to me that we drank/drink(?) in the same kinds of places. I have a chip on my shoulder about this precisely because I've had to deal with it constantly for as long as I can remember. Posh kids come to shit pubs when they're already drunk expecting an episode of EastEnders or whatever.

> I'm not trying to excuse anything, merely state that younger lads tend to be more pissed up and more testosterone fueled than some older guys

I have been an alcoholic since I was 16. It's not about the situation it's about the lad with something to prove, just like any and all other circumstances where one person wants a fight and decides to make it happen.

Exactly. And the thing about it with a lass is that they tend to also have that air about them where they've learned over the years how they can insidiously get away with it. They've experienced and understood the way hitting a bloke is often completely consequence free, where a bloke hitting her would never be.

With a little time and perspective I've come to perceive my previous relationship as abusive (which some of you lads called out close to a year ago when I first found myself complaining on here about her) but at the time I barely even considered the possibility. Of course, nobody will take me seriously if I try and tell them she was, and after the break up she put plenty of work into making me look like the bad guy. So thank fuck she wasn't the type inclined to violence.

I'd say OP is still well advised to think carefully about this bird.

It sounds to me like you're taking one possibly bad experience and extrapolating it and projecting it onto other cases. Just because you might have been in an "abusive" relationship (which apparently didn't even involve a slap from a lass?) doesn't mean all girls who give naughty dogs a slap are ticking time bombs. Perspective, please.

I'm not saying she definitely is a mentalist, but I definitely think it's something that would cause me to think hard about my assumptions of a person's character.

The mains charger for my new radio has a USB A socket on it.
Out of that USB socket, comes 12V.

What the actual fuck?
Big Clive doesn't even need to bother, this is evil by design.

Also, I just wanted a pair of radios that did digital PMR446 to each other. I'm in a world of programming, codeplugs and people setting up for repeaters, none of which I want. I feel confused.

Radioddity GD-77 , so yes, I've been criminal scum in that they'll operate outside the unlicensed bands and at unlicensed powers.
hence me wanting to find a codeplug that'll kick them back down to legal DPMR (although I know that won't make them legal, but I'm OK with that).
It's just that my analogue PMRs are really knackered and I lost the good ones in a house move, so fancied something a bit less crackly now that I'm using them more. 'Real' DPMR sets are ball-achingly expensive still, as there aren't that many.

/pol/84456 Ban anonymous accounts, Angela Rayner tells social media firms
https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2018/sep/23/ban-anonymous-accounts-angela-rayner-tells-social-media-firms

>The shadow education secretary, speaking at a Labour party conference event, said social media firms should take greater responsibility for their users and noted in particular that Facebook seemed to have indicated that politicians should accept a higher level of abuse.

>Rayner, at a fringe event organised by the Guardian, conceded that insisting on real names wouldn’t stop abuse, but “it would certainly help a little bit. I think they should do more – they do have a responsibility for online.”

I... kind of like Angela Rayner, but this is a truly awful idea that seems to have had absolutely no thought put into its implementation or wider affects on freedom of expression. Technically almost every single account commenting on The Guardian is an "anonymous" social media account because why would you use a real name for such a thing.

I really hope this doesn't gain any kind of traction.
