It's the first time in a while, but all three of us seem to be playing this one. Let's have a thread where we talk about it while it's still fresh and new, before everyone knows all of it and it's all old hat.

Did any of you notice that your fireplace waifu will give you some new story tidbits each new bonfi grace-place you visit?

Procrastionation complete. I checked the wiki to see if I missed any graces, managed to fuck up the Jar Bairn questline, fed the final deathroot, got all remembrances. I'm sure I missed an area here or there and once again the boss soul weapons are a bit meh (for melee characters) so I skipped the mausoleums but after 160hrs I thought it might be time to NG+. I'm one of those people that moaned about STR being a bit shit in this game and I stand by that, but since Mrs Death Stranding letes you respec so easily (it's honestly a good system, I expected to get a pile of runes but instead it shows your original build and then lets you ratched up the stats until it matches your current level) so I respecced into a RoB/Uchigatana dex/arc bleed build, did it the meme way and beat the Elden Beast.

The ending honestly felt like a damp squib. It's not like previous games had grand fireworks for the endings, but in this instance the endings weren't about what the player but what we did for characters in the game which which clashes quite harshly with From's quest system and story telling: I'm not really invested enough in any of them to care who takes the throne. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but "this guy you accidentally helped now is special!" wasn't it.

This is part of why I think the criticism of the questlines in this game is totally fair.

Fromsoft simps defend it as being obscure and therefore rewarding, but the fact is there's just really no meat on the bones here. Even the most involved of the questlines has maybe a dozen or so lines of dialogue. You're never making "decisions" on who to help and who to ignore, you don't have any attachment or investment in any of them, hell I wouldn't even know their names if I hadn't looked them all up on the wiki later. It was just "that guy with the hat", "that chick from the castle".

There may as well have been an ending for prawn guy or turtle pope.

I dipped my hand into online play after learning that you can't get invaded unless you use that item or play co-op with another player. I can see blood stains, read messages, yet still play in peace that no Giant Dad equivalent is going to invade, hile the window to invade before boss fights is tiny. Two steps forward, one step back. I can play online and request help, but I don't have to play hollow while playing just to avoid unwanted PvP.

That's such a marked changed that I now (on my second play through) enable online play by default, I don't worry about invasions but for areas or bosses I need help (trying a caster magic build) I can take advantage of the feature.

Yeah, this is why you get trolled easily. The sheer fact that trolling can exist and that the motivation of needling one individual can cause someone to express views they don't actually hold, so taking those views at face value is irrational unless someone is emphatically standing by them when questioned.

I'm not built like a brick shithouse but I've been in enough fights to know how to handle myself. That wasn't really my concern though, riots aren't that dangerous for a bystander - those involved are too busy smashing and looting things to be provoking fights with random strangers. I was more worried about landing a criminal record just because some overzealous copper noticed a lone, unmasked individual holding a bottle of stolen booze and saw an opportunity to make an arrest.

>New Amazon Worker Chat App Would Ban Words Like “Union,” “Restrooms,” “Pay Raise,” and “Plantation”

https://theintercept.com/2022/04/04/amazon-union-living-wage-restrooms-chat-app/


>Amazon will block and flag employee posts on a planned internal messaging app that contain keywords pertaining to labor unions, according to internal company documents reviewed by The Intercept. An automatic word monitor would also block a variety of terms that could represent potential critiques of Amazon’s working conditions, like “slave labor,” “prison,” and “plantation,” as well as “restrooms” — presumably related to reports of Amazon employees relieving themselves in bottles to meet punishing quotas.

Companies like Wal-Mart have pretty much already implemented something like that, where they have a phone number where employees can snitch on each other about any behaviour that is against company statutes. Which also include a ban on romantic relationships between employees, both off and on the job.

Fucking puritans.

>The Treasury has asked the Royal Mint to create a non-fungible token, or NFT, as it attempts to show Britain is at the cutting edge for new technologies by launching its own cryptoasset.

>It said the chancellor, Rishi Sunak, had asked the 1,136-year-old institution to create the NFT – a type of unique digital asset stored on a blockchain, the same decentralised ledger of transactions used to buy and sell cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin – so it could be issued by the summer. The Treasury’s announcement did not specify what image or object the Royal Mint’s NFT would confer ownership of, whether more would be created, nor whether NFTs would be used to generate funds for the exchequer. A Treasury spokesman said more details would be announced “soon”.

>The decision to launch an NFT is likely to raise eyebrows at a time when more than a million people in Britain are expected to fall into poverty this year after Sunak did not do more in his spring statement to cushion the poorest in society from soaring living costs as inflation hits the highest level in three decades. The rise of NFTs has also led to a spate of scams and have become a target for hackers, losing consumers vast sums.

>Sunak said it was his ambition to make the UK a global hub for cryptoasset technology through close oversight of the emerging sector. “We want to see the businesses of tomorrow – and the jobs they create – here in the UK, and by regulating effectively we can give them the confidence they need to think and invest long term.” The government said it intends to legislate to bring stablecoins – digital assets usually pegged to a fiat currency such as the pound or the dollar – into its regulatory regime, meaning issuers and services providers offering such products in the UK would need to follow rules set by UK authorities.

'They took everything from me' - Father Ted creator breaks down on Northern Irish talkshow

The creator of Father Ted broke down on a late night Northern Irish talk show while discussing the impact his involvement in trans discourse has had on he and his family. Graham Linehan became emotional during a virtual interview with Stephen Nolan on Nolan Live today, stating, "They took everything from me. They took my family."

He said on the show: "Before this, all I was doing you know [was] writing comedy and playing board games and being silly on the internet, and then I just said 'Hang on a sec, stop calling these women terfs, stop sending them abuse, let them speak' and for that they just destroyed me."

The comedian and writer confirmed the breakup of his marriage following strain from financial insecurity due to loss of work.

When Mr Nolan prompted Mr Linehan about whether he truly felt destroyed, he responded with: "No, because the one thing about this that keeps me going is that I know I'm right. I know I'm right. When you open up a newspaper and see words, as I have many times, about sexual offenders who have suddenly decided they're women and the words 'her penis' comes up, well every time I see something like that I just think 'Well I'm right and everyone else is wrong'." He continued: "It's a very strange position for me to be in, it's the opposite position to one I've been in for my whole life. Sex is important, women are real, women's language is important, women need words like 'woman' to describe themselves, these are all just basic things."

If women can have penises then why do evangelist christian korean youtubers go through all the bother to have their johnsons inverted? Do the ones who want to have the surgery suffer from ingrained heteronormative oppression and gender stereotyping? If not, does it become an aesthetic choice like a woman getting surgically enhanced boobs or a man getting jaw surgery?

My best guess is that they think they'll be able to snag someone 100% straight instead of one of those weirdo evangelist christian korean youtuber chasers, but the neo-vagina technology isn't there yet so they often end up alienating both groups.

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.

I am genuinely interested in both ideas, investorlad. How would you go about investing in the space sector, in particular?

>>9186

Without meaning to shit up a thread about interesting investments and inflation, I feel compelled to point out that the big "return to the office" is not about productivity, it's about control. People who spend enough time away from the office might get the idea into their head that spending more time with family is important, or that they can make more friends outside of work, or that they can afford to be more ambitious with their time.

As always, it's a power struggle, and I will also add that if working from home were permanent, then we should expect to see companies making ever increasing use of surveillance technology to make sure people aren't doing any of the above, i.e. blockers on certain websites, activity monitors, obligatory sign-on times and "stand-up" meetings.

Microsoft Teams already has a feature that records your mouse movements and any periods of inactivity, supposedly so that it can mark you as "away" when necessary, but it's not hard to imagine how this data could be used for monitoring.

It actively is used for monitoring. Microsoft are quite open about that fact when they speak to enterprise/corporate IT environments. There are much worse tools out there already, though, that actively spy on workers; start with googling "desk occupancy sensor" for a start and go down the rabbit hole.

Protip: The moving images, animations on continuously running videos on a website such as ArsTechnica fool it and a) continually activate Teams and b) disable the screensaver. Use this information as you will (and saves buying one of those devices that jiggle the mouse for you).

>The 2-year and 10-year Treasury yields inverted for the first time since 2019 on Thursday, sending a possible warning signal that a recession could be on the horizon. The bond market phenomenon means the rate of the 2-year note is now higher than the 10-year note yield.

>This part of the yield curve is the most closely watched and typically given the most credence by investors that the economy could be heading for a downturn when it inverts. The 2-year to 10-year spread was last in negative territory in 2019, before pandemic lockdowns sent the global economy into a steep recession in early 2020. When the curve inverts, “there has been a better than two-thirds chance of a recession at some point in the next year and a greater than 98% chance of a recession at some point in the next two years,” according to Bespoke.

>In general, a simple way to look at the importance of the yield curve is to think about what it means for a bank. The yield curve measures the spread between a bank’s cost of money versus what it will make by lending it out or investing it over a longer period of time. If banks can’t make money, lending slows and so does economic activity. While the yield curve has sent somewhat reliable signals about pending recessions, there is often a long time lag and analysts say there needs to be corroborating evidence before investors need to fear a recession is around the corner.

It's not a sure-thing but you might want to hope for a good rice harvest this year. My guess is the market will still bump following the end of the Russo-Ukrainian War but that things will start coming undone as we get into winter.

Psychopharmacology is basically educated guesswork, but the obvious option is to just try 10mg and see how you go.

Has anything changed in your life that might have triggered a worsening of your symptoms?

Not that I know of. I even had a psychiatrist tell me he was amazingly happy with my progress just a few weeks ago. All the fears and obsessions I felt I had gotten over, have just slowly come back. They are bad enough as they are, let alone when you feel you've rid of them, and tasted happiness/normality.

Not escitalopram specifically, but I've been on many different antidepressants, and find with some the benefit of them dwindles over time. Not sure if this is due to difficulties in life or just tolerance to the drug, but if you feel it's not working there are shitloads of alternatives out there that might work.

Think I might have the old peptic ulcer lads - had to leave work on Wednesday because I was burping furiously from the morning which developed into nausea in the afternoon, eventually managed to vomit properly in the evening, after which point my arse immediately decided it needed a piss and I felt a bit better, but it's been a baseline since then of getting gassy when I'm moving and having maybe 1 proper meal a day due to reduced appetite. Now the lass wants to go for a birthday pubcrawl and while I relish the idea of walking several miles and consuming half pints of water on the route, I'm not sure I should just stay in my wanking den.

But a few people have had a stomach bug at work recently so I'm unsure, should probably get a GP appointment right? Looks like ulcers are bacterial infection anyway so should be antibiotics either way. Chances of dying if I don't go to the hospital today?

I fucked up my toenail again. Had it treated a few years ago after it'd been ingrowing for a long time.. slowly got used to cutting it across and never below the edge but it had started becoming uncomfortable again recently. I got frustrated and cut deep into the groove, can't even pull out the nail section as it's still connected somewhere. It bled a bit and the pain is sharper than usual, but It's not pus-y(?) anymore, which is a plus .. but i'm gonna pay for it.

Can SSRI withdrawal (Citalopram 10mg) symptoms appear after even 2 months from stopping?

After a death in the family I went a bit loopy for a while, I was having constant panic attacks and intrusive thoughts about my own mortality.

I took Citalopram 10mg for 2 years, I stopped it 5 weeks ago after a quick ish taper (every other day for a few weeks, then every 3 days for a few weeks, then pretty quick).

Initially I felt a bit irritable, but otherwise great, I was feeling motivated and energised, and these intrusive and obsessional thoughts, as the doc put them, were no where to be seen.

Now 5-6 weeks later they are returning, and frankly I am scared. I'm also getting consistent headaches, like I feel very de-hydrated, even though I'm drinking a lot.

Well thanks for your input and I'm glad to hear it's working for you. If you don't mind a more personal question, how has this drug impacted your sex life? SSRis seem to mess that area of my life up big time. What I've done is booked a consultation with a psychiatrist via psychiatry-uk.com. I can't stand waiting. The GP told me I was set to be waiting years otherwise.

SSRIs were a double edged sword with regards to sex life. It took literally hours to cum. The ladies appreciated the stamina, but if I wanted to wank it might take 4 hours to reach climax. My current cocktail (fluoxetine, olanzapine, buproprion, lithium) has my sex life back to relatively normal. I know there's variation between people, but for me I haven't got the sexual numbness I had with drugs like sertraline/citalopram, and I can easily get it up which I couldn't on the other SSRIs.

Well, it's been another 6 months and he's still wrecked. Can't eat or sleep, has no energy and has pain all over his body. He now weighs 6 stone and only leaves his bed to go to the bathroom. The doctor agrees it's probably nervous system damage caused by taking olanzapine for 8 years.

The drug is absolute poison.

That sounds awful, my heart goes out to you and your pa.

Not great to hear because olanzapine is essentially the one drug that consistently and effectively stabilises one of my loved ones. Before that, everything up to and including lithium either didn't make any positive impact or actively made things worse.

/b/442884 Hypotheticals
I sometimes play out hypothetical scenarios in my head and what I'd do. I thought it would make for an interesting thread if I started listing them and getting some solutions, it might even be a learning experience as there's usually things I don't have an answer to.

So my first go:

If you broke one of your legs, how fucked would you be? How about both? That's not a threat. I was thinking about it the other night and how, frankly, I'd probably give breaking my legs a miss. My main problem is that I live up a few flights of stairs with no disabled access so I'd be trapped. I assume you can ask a delivery driver to come upstairs if you explain your position, so I wouldn't starve, but if both my legs are broken there's getting home from the hospital or going back as the legs heal.

I'd probably have to move out and live with my parents for at least a year. Do removal companies offer a service where they will pack your things up even if you don't organise? I don't much fancy my family finding my fleshlight.

I know my address from 20 years ago, so I assume I would write a letter there (my parents still live there now). The letter would probably tell me which girl I fancied at the time, because it was a secret and I would never tell anyone such a thing. I might even rate the other girls from my class in my own personal order of attractiveness. I still have a class photo from 20 years ago, so I can use that. I also have a class photo from 19 years ago, so I could name the kids who will join my class in a few months next school year, if I have that long. I'm communicating via time-travelling letter so I assume I do.

A Facebook friend from primary school had her account hacked a few years ago, and started posting spam, and then sent me a message saying sorry for all the spam and please add her new account and delete the old one. This really happened, and it had probably been about 20 years at the time since I last saw her, so I tested her veracity by asking her who our primary school teacher was in a specific year. I can't imagine a spammer or hacker having access to that information, and she knew, so I used that as confirmation that it was really Hannah (who, in the year in question, was ranked second in the most-fancied-girls-in-my-class list).

The more I reflect on this story the worse it sounds. I suspect your parents will have the police on the telephone once they find someone is claiming to be their son from the future while sending crude messages ranking school girls, sharing porn bush locations and begging him to invest in special internet coins.

Things will only get worse when the police look at the yellow dots under a microscope.

I'd suggest separating them into airtight containers with a month or two's worth in each, that way you're not exposing the whole lot to the humidity in the air every time you take one out.

Non-stick coatings are made from a plastic called PTFE. It is almost completely inert below about 250°C and is widely used in medical devices and the chemicals industry for this reason - it just doesn't want to react with anything. Unfortunately it's also very soft and the non-stick properties mean that it's difficult to adhere it to metal.

It's totally harmless unless you massively overheat it, but it's also inherently fragile. Avoid using metal implements or scourers.
