/emo/27047 Where to meet birds
So, I've decided to try and not be that guy, a relationship-less virgin, into my mid-20s, which doesn't leave me with very long. I'm home from uni for the summer and have decided it's time to sort my act out.

The only problem - where to meet women?

I've completed tinder in a 15 mile radius, likewise for Bumble - zero (0) matches. I've messaged pretty much every girl on OKCupid with a match >75%; not one has replied.

What can I do now? The few local schoolfriends I am still in contact with are all male, everyone at my job is male, and all the women I talk to (from uni) are either in a relationship or otherwise not an option.

Going out to clubs doesn't work because a) I don't have anyone to go with, and b) when I try and do anything but stand at the bar drinking in a club (ie dance) I look like a tortoise trying to pilot a motorcycle.

Any ideas?

You're absolutely right, but more than that, I think it's the ability to enjoy a good shagging. Throughout my life I've had one or two lasses with wierd sexual hang-up that really made sex quite tedious, and I think it really coincided with the more melancholy or bitter aspects of their personality. Same probably goes for men of course.

It's not just getting laid. It's knowing that everyone else gets a feeling of wellbeing from a decent shag, that they're just too shy, or self conscious, or narcissistic or whatever to get it too.

/pol/90612 Political Compass Thread
A little while back I mentioned that I was interested in seeing where .gs sits on a political compass. I was surprised by the last poll I did on age so thought this could be an interesting exercise in procrastinating on things that I actually need to do tonight.

I've conducted a look over the many, many compasses that could be used and thought this recent British-centric option would be good and not too long:
http://www.thetakemachine.co.uk/quiz

It does remove the Authoritarian/Libertarian part but looking at the about page there's a fair reason for it in reflecting current societal divides and the authors sit on opposing ends. This includes asking about your social attitudes more generally. Look, the important thing is that we all do the same quiz and it's only 46 yes/no questions.

You'll need to print screen your result.

>Transgender women will still be allowed to play women’s rugby at all non-international levels of the game in England for the foreseeable future, the Guardian can reveal, after the Rugby Football Union decided that more evidence was needed before implementing any ban.

>The RFU’s position is sharply at odds with World Rugby, which last week ruled that trans women could no longer play elite women’s rugby after a major review of the latest science concluded that the risk of “significant injury” was “too great’”. However, the RFU’s view, which is understood to be supported by several other countries, is that more work is needed to assess whether there are safe ways to allow trans women to keep playing the sport they love.

>Last week World Rugby became the first international sports body to ban trans women from the women’s game following an eight-month review. It concluded that it was not possible to balance inclusivity with safety and fairness ‘in light of growing evidence that the testosterone suppression required by previous transgender regulations did not significantly impact muscle mass, strength or power”. World Rugby said that biological males, whose puberty and development is influenced by androgens/testosterone, are “stronger by 25% to 50%, are 30% more powerful, 40% heavier, and about 15% faster than biological females. That combination of mass, strength, power and speed means that in a direct physical contest, cis women in all these domains will be at significant risk of injury.”

/uhu/2809 power tools
I often dither over buying power tools, because I worry about how much they cost, and how many times I'll actually use it. Often though, one comes along which saves me so much time, even for a "quick" job, that the manual version makes no sense whatsoever anymore.

I like to use old fire doors to make desks - I have other wooden desks and shelves that in the past I have sanded by hand, but today I took delivery of a random orbital sander - LIFE CHANGING. I'm never manually sanding a worktop or shelf ever again.

Everyone should have a decent drill at least - whats your (new) favourite power tool?

I have a chunky one, like you say, about a small drill - actually probably closer to a hot glue gun in size than anything else. The one I have is quite nice and is powerful enough to pull dodgy old screws out of hardwood and such, and it can take some bolts out too if they haven't been too torqued.

I like the idea of the ones you mention (I think I first saw them talked about here actually), but worry that it might struggle to deal with some of the more robust applications. If I spent all day doing electronics stuff I'd be all over the Wowstick, though.

Boring, non-/iq/ answer: he has a small amount of residual vision (light and darkness, fuzzy silhouettes in high-contrast environments) but has fantastically good adaptive skills, thanks in large part to his education at the Michigan School for the Blind. One of his former classmates is George Wurtzel, who is almost entirely blind and a world-renowned woodworker.



"I can't believe he's blind" is a complement to Wonder's skills; on that note, I give you Ryo Kawamura, the world's best blind striker.

I know I'm late to the party, I am old, but having grown up completely surrounded by television and that kind of media influence, until my late twenties; this year (perhaps exacerbated by lockdown?) is the year I have totally stopped watching the BBC. Once per month, there might be something on BBC4 I like, and if I slump on the sofa light night, I might watch a small sample of outdoor survival / cookery show tat (not BBC obvs), but literally once per month to both now. Sort of blows my mind.

I used to be a very strong advocate for the license fee and the BBC, but not anymore.

The problem is more subtle than that. BME people aren't evenly distributed around the country, so most BME people live in places with a disproportionately high number of BME people; conversely, most white people live in places with above-average numbers of white people.

It's impossible to simultaneously represent the lived experience of someone who grew up in St Helens (98.8% white) and someone who grew up in Leicester (50.4% white). No matter what level of representation you choose, a lot of people are going to feel slighted.

My other half has squeezed all of the washing up liquid into a Kilner bottle.

Lads, I don't get it. I really don't get it. I mean, I gave up trying to understand women a long time ago but every now and then something happens that leaves me utterly flummoxed beyond all comprehension. Is 'WITH NOTHING TO SAY BECAUSE I AM A CUNT' still wordfiltered? I mean, she's moved it from one bottle... to another bottle. It doesn't even pour that well so you always end up using more than you intended to. I doubt anyone in the entire history of humankind has ever thought "washing up liquid in a glass bottle, nice." It's bright yellow and she also pours the cooking oil into a Kilner bottle, which she doesn't store too far away from it, so I can almost certainly guarantee at some point in the future she'll end up frying food in washing up liquid. The lid is also a faff. Just... why? Why, lads?

Can you lads please reassure me that your lasses do stupid shit like this?

The post-silurian industrial civilisation never ended; lizard brains never went extinct. they consciously started themselves on a new lines of evolution, after discovering the maximum iq available to the number of connections available within a certain volume, but understood that a higher density iq was possible with the passage of time, hence their "regression" into what we now know as birds. Apes are merely the caretakers assigned to bring about the non fossil-fuel based industrustrial civislisation of the ancestors of the birds, the silurians or whatever you call them; the new qwolrd order.

/£$€¥/3840 Pensions
The OFT have come out and said that many old (i.e. set up before 2001) pension schemes have high charges and offer savers poor value for money. They've also suggested a cap for auto-enrolment schemes, but it's going to be an almost meaningless gesture as you'd be very hard pressed to find a provider offering auto-enrolment terms with annual management charges greater than 1% anyway.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-24153012

The pension scheme I'm in at work (contribution: 5% employer, 5% employee gross) has management charges of 0.6%, which I'm alright with as it's less than I'd get if I was investing in collectives through an ISA.

However, I've put the charges and contribution details into Invidion's pension calculator for an idea of what I'd get when I'm 65, 40 years from now, and if my salary increases in line with National Average Earnings and I took the 25% tax-free lump sum I'd be looking at a pension in today's terms of 27.5% of my current salary. If I wanted a pension that would be about two-thirds of what I'm earning now then I'll need to contribute, assuming the employer contribution stays at 5%, 15% gross (12% net) of my salary every year for the next four decades. This does depend on what annuity rates will be like then and I'd also be getting the State Pension, as long as they haven't upped the age you receive it to 80 by then.

If it wasn't for the tax relief and my employer matching my contributions then I doubt I'd bother and I'd look into other ways to support myself while I'm in retirement. What about you lads? What are your thoughts on pensions? In my opinion to have any form of decent retirement income you're at the mercy of your employer offering a good pension scheme.

The mix of decent moderation and the general quality of posts. It's something I haven't found anywhere else.
I'm sure there are other nationalities here but the site actually feels, well British.
Sure the site isn't the fastest in the world for posts but I like it the way it is now.

Its just part of the routine.
Been around since Britchan fell, and it sort of feels like home.
I got a tad upset when I thought .GS was done for a couple of months back.

/v/23234 Grange Hill
I made this picture ages ago and forgot about it.

If any one is interested all the Grange Hill episodes since the early 1990's are available on Youtube. Highlights include Kevin getting high on LSD in 1995 (Series 18) and the Wayne vs Alec & Sean rivalry in 1998 (Series 21).

Would love to hear your Grange Hill memories.

/£$€¥/7978 Crypto Currencies
Any interest in a general crypto currency thread? The old Bitcoin one dates back to 2013 and things have moved on a bit since then. I got interested in them earlier in the year and have invested a few grand now, have just been picking up some coins here and there when the prices dip. I'd previously dabbled in funds and shares but was looking for something a bit less dull and with a higher risk/reward ratio.

There are some interesting projects using blockchain technologies that sound like they have potential, I think the Bank of England and the EU are working on their own crypto-currencies and China has one nearly ready to launch. It will be interesting to see where things go over the next few years, one hot topic lately has been decentralised finance (de-fi) where all sorts of financial products can be offered using blockchain tech removing banks etc. from the process entirely. This seems like one of the major benefits to me, carrrying out transactions peer-to-peer without involving any third parties although all exchanges these days require you to provide ID so it's not exactly untraceable, and there is no-one that can help if you lose your private keys or get your coins stolen.

Interesting as I just saw an article published just this mornng suggesting that MtGox were holding large sums of BTC from the Silk Road. Sounds perfectly plausible to me.

I know a couple of people who lost bitcoins in the hack if they were ever to be returned they would become fairly rich, I believe the Japanese authorities set a final deadliine recently of October 15th for submissions to the rehabilitation plan but this shit has been dragging on for many years now so who knows what might happen.

If you enjoy speculation about the identity of Satoshi you might like this 3 part documentary - a you tuber does quite a bit of research into it. The name he comes up with is not one I hear mentioned often, and it's not Hal Finney although he does get a mention.

I stumbled upon this little oligarch enclave while taking a walk. Landscape gardening pros, how much do you reckon it costs to keep these trees so well manicured?

I was thinking of getting into the landscape gardening game and making fat stacks of cash off of ostentatious oligarchs. Seems like a pretty cosy job.

I believe the Russians tried to build a TEL like that - the rocket is fine, its the transporter that doesn't work at that size.

Does it really matter? The people they most want to blow up are an M6 motorway away and they can't get them off the ground regardless. And for the record I WANT them to hit Washington DC, I just don't think they ever will.

The transporter is definitely real. China got into quite a lot of bother for selling the Norks half a dozen massive "logging trucks".

/fat/5484 Chin-ups for breakfast
I've been doing one set of chin-ups every morning. I just pump out as many reps as possible, but without pushing it too hard and getting to the point I'm gritting my teeth and grunting.

Two weeks ago I could barely do one rep. Now I'm up to four. I want to get up to twenty eventually.
