There is still fun to be had. And it is hard for me to separate all of my knowledge collected over the years from what someone would be able to pick up fresh, if that makes sense.

I might be being a bit harsh. It probably is a fine film to shovel popcorn into your mouth too. There is nothing wrong with it as such.

It is a detective story, but not a mystery that I think the audience can solve among with the characters. I don't think in 10 years it will be remembered for anything other than its novelty.

As someone who was massively into pokemon as a 10 year old in the late 90s, at the height of gen 1 popularity, I honestly felt like it was a movie aimed squarely at people like me. It barely featured any newer pokemon, and has Deadpool in it.

I mean it makes sense really. A lot of people my age or thereabouts probably have kids by now, and it's the oldest trick in the book to make a kids film that the parents secretly like just as much because of nostalgia.

I'm well aware we're this is slippery slope territory... Someone at work today told me that the reason athletics is dominated by people whose ancestors were slaves is because their owners used to follow the principles of selective breeding in livestock, making the strongest breed with the strongest and so on. That's apparently why they do better than blacks whose ancestors weren't enslaved.

Is this true? I'm quite gullible. I'd have thought that the latter could simply be explained by America having much greater funding and resources than bongo bongo land.

Think about all other traditional hats associated with a particular tribe, the Laotian wear lampshades to keep the sun off, the aussies wear cork hats to keep the flies away, the eskimos wear fur hats to keep warm. All have a practical use.
But the kippah has no practical use, it is entirely for show. It's only function is to broadcast how you are in a position of power or have a job inside the institutions, so you don't need protection from the elements while toiling outside all day.

/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?

I'm back on the dating sites after a break of many months.

OkCupid doesn't work for me, I get very few matches there. I don't know if they're expecting a really well written bio. I did notice a lot of the same faces from the last time I was there, that feels like a bad sign. The UX is also terrible.

I get some matches on the swiperino apps, but most of them aren't interested enough to have an actual conversation .It should be a bit soul crushing, but I stopped caring quickly. I get more hits on Tinder than on Bumble, but I've only ever met up with women from Bumble. I find them quite addictive, and I doubt that the constant wash of rejection is psychologically healthy. I'm considering paying for one of the boost options, just to see how effective they are.

I've been trying Hinge. I'm having better luck there than on the others. I recommend it to any newlads who aren't having much luck on Tinder.

>I find them quite addictive

Yep, so do lots of people, including lassies. Part of their business strategy is to subtly encourage time wasters who are basically just there for attention- They'd kill their own business if everyone found a match straight away.

From your perspective you really need to learn to identify those ones. After a while it's not difficult; what is difficult is the willpower nit to waste your time trying to chat them up because you don't have many other matches to work with. The fact you're starting to feel nonplussed and indifferent is a great asset here.

The golden rule still holds true. It's a numbers game- When you find one you click with, you KNOW you click, and it's usually just entirely by accident that you strike up a conversation as if you've known each other for years right at the start. Don't waste your time with those pointless back and forth where you know they're not putting in their fair share of the effort.

Also just gonna come out and say it- Birds are fucking shit at online dating too. They're used to getting all the attention hounded by dozens of men so they rarely put in the effort that's required to find and meet someone they would actually connect with. This self sabotage leads to a vicious cycle. Keep ot in mind when you're dealing with them.

>Also just gonna come out and say it- Birds are fucking shit at online dating too.

I think this is a lesson that men need to learn, quickly, when they enter the world of dating. Women have just as many problems with the dating scene as men do (both online and offline)- for sure they get more attention off the bat, but not the kind of attention you or I would relish. You need female friends (real ones) to learn and see this first-hand.

Also, when in the online dating scene - you need to know that you're frequently working with a group of people. I'm old and married, which is why the first twenty minutes of meeting with a single, female friend who is online dating, is often spent with me filtering their latest matches (and contributing to how they reply).

I would totally agree that a) its a numbers game and b) don't waste time trying to force it; if someone is an effort to talk to online, they'll most likely be ten times that in real life. Focus on the people you click with, it's obvious when it happens.

Sorry for adding this short fucking novel to the spate of recent /emo/ posts, particularly one with such a similar problem to otherlad, but I’m >>28820 and this problem is at a crossroads.

No excuses for my behaviour, but the story goes:

I started dating Girl A and things were a bit tepid. We had some nice dates but things weren't getting much beyond platonic. After a couple of weeks of not meeting, Girl B happened to move to a nearby town, someone I’d mingled with in the past and wanted to ask out two years earlier, but our jobs separated us before I had the chance. We met to catch up, and I felt a strong attraction. I visited her over a couple of weekends and things really click, we had some nice long discussions about life, and we had sex.

This is where things get bad. During one of my visits, Girl B looks through my phone while I’m taking a shower, finding messages from Girl A. I explain the situation – that things never really came together with Girl A – and while she’s understandably upset, she apologises for looking through my phone. We put it down to bad timing, and admitted that while the distance made things a bit complicated, we agreed a train journey to spend weekends together is a small price to pay and that it was still worth pursuing.

Girl A figured out something is up when our messaging cooled off. She asked me if there’s anything I want to tell her, and I tried to do the honourable thing. I told her about Girl B. She became angry – I replied that I like her but it wasn’t really clear that there was attraction between us. It could be that we’re different in how we express things. She assured me she that the "signs were there", and asks if we can’t “see where things go without any external interference".

If I were a better person I’d have said no… but I didn't, and Girl B then began to open up. We met up and did some outdoorsy activities, had fun, bonded a bit. We started sharing a bit more of our lives. She eventually offered to cook for me at her flat and I stayed the night. This led to my current situation. I see Girl A once or twice a week the evenings, rarely staying over but sometimes having sex, and I take a train to see Girl B and stay with her every other weekend or so.

I do feel immense guilt, and I know in the back of my head that I’m really sabotaging both. Things have been dragging on like this for a while, two or three months. Combined with money troubles and the fact I'm balancing a ludicrous workload (two part time jobs, odds and ends, organising a big career-related move, and full-time study), this has caused a lot of stress. I feel like I'm living a double/triple life. I want a clear conscience without causing unnecessary hurt.

Actually deciding what to do:

Anon, are you the lad that posted in my old thread about the similar position?

If so, good luck, let me know what you do work out. I think there has to be a mythical girl C or D down the line, one thing I've learnt is that it's a mistake to stay with somebody because they're 'acceptable' and nothing else.

This really stings though, and I know what it's like trying to hold on to two boats sailing in different directions.

Good luck, please update us.

>I believe it was you that wrote

That was actually the other lad who is facing a similar problem. I posted in that thread asking how things turned out, but didn't want to hijack his thread with my situation.

Otherwise, I assume you read my post and came to these conclusions about me. If so, not confident in what? My ability to meet new people, or in my life situation right now? Giving that some thought... "Dating" in this way is a new game to me, though I seem to be doing alright at it. Meeting and clicking with people for something more lasting, though, that has an element of chance that I find it difficult to cope with. My life right now is challenging, no doubt, but I am pretty certain things will turn out roughly as I want. As a sidenote, the last thing I wanted was to add this shite on top of almost constant pressure elsewhere.

I'm not sure my problem is fear of being alone -- I actually fear being stuck in a bad relationship more, honestly, which is why I'm thinking a lot about the long-term future. I also notice that there's an assumption here that we're all a bit younger than we actually are. For context, I'm in my late twenties and both girls are early to mid-thirties.

If I were to take a look at myself and why I made these bad decisions, I'd say it's a combination of factors. I was in a situation last year where I invested a lot in a girl and things unravelled within a few months. That was a horrible one. Another is my recent flurry of activity has put me in a kind of "take every opportunity, do everything to the best of your ability, hedge your bets" mindset, but I'm aware this is a morally awful thing to apply to other human beings. Another factor is that I genuinely like both and could see some sort of future with either girl.

I'm not asking to be absolved of guilt for my actions so far. I can live with what I've done, as long as I make some effort now to reduce the inevitable hurt someone's going to feel. I can try to be moral now, at least, and make the best of the situation.

Messaging Girl A and urging us to meet to talk...

Even now it's hard to work up the nerve to break up. Not just because I know she'll be hurt and disappointed, but also because I know there's a potential future in there I'll never get to see.

Why is it the moment I'm trying to end it, my mind runs through all the nice moments we've had?

I wish there were some way to continue both relationships without hurting anyone further. But it's easy for me to say from my more comfortable/powerful position. If I were them, I would be very jealous and angry if I knew the truth.

There's also a flipside to me where I almost feel resentful with both, as they both expressed early stage cold feet, anyway. I'm honestly tired of being expected to commit fully to people who are themselves extremely changeable. I know it's just the nature of things...

If anyone gives a shit how this turned out, the geographically closer but more tepid thing fizzled out. I told her up front that it wasn't working for me. We haven't seen eachother in weeks, and our last fling was months ago. Things were left on a very cold note, and I don't know whether it's worth me trying to salvage a friendship. Maybe it's confirmation bias, but things never really felt right, there.

The more inconvenient but passionate relationship is still going, and though it started with serious issues, I get the sense that this girl sees me as more a part of her life and actually cares for me. The last visits I've been staying longer and I feel like we've reached a new level. This is feeling like a relationship, a fun one.

I think the reason I fucked up like this was really just a fear of emotionally committing to someone who could just call it off at any second. I feel a lot more secure about it, but I have noticed when I start thinking about how things could go south, I start getting the urge to look elsewhere. It can become a crutch, to have other options so you don't have to invest fully in one. But maybe it's worth it, here.

Slow walking at 45 'a sign of faster ageing'

How fast people walk in their 40s is a sign of how much their brains, as well as their bodies, are ageing, scientists have suggested.

Using a simple test of gait speed, researchers were able to measure the ageing process. Not only were slower walkers' bodies ageing more quickly - their faces looked older and they had smaller brains.

I knew it. I fucking knew it. Slow walking mouthbreathing mongs have smaller brains. This explains a lot. Fast walking master race for life.

Tangentially related, but I was looking at visiting That London with my other half recently, and we concluded it'd be cheaper to go to Amsterdam for the weekend. There's something very definitely not right there.

Okay, but it'd certainly cost me more in petrol to get somewhere remote in Scotland than it would to take the train to a request stop somewhere. Not really sure what else to suggest.

You're not wrong though, it's cheaper to fly to Norway than it is Aberdeen for me on the same airline on the same type of plane. £250 for a 30 minute flight, and that's with a discount.

You can still do Birmingham to London for less than a fiver, but yeah Scotland doesn't look cheap at all.

500 miles at 30mpg is £95, decidedly not more* than what you might get charged for half that distance on the train.

The old Bonald Blumpf thread is over 3000 posts long now. Can we have an impeachment-specific thread?

The US appeals court just ruled that Trump's tax returns can be released for use in a public criminal investigation. The Supreme Court may overrule this but despite having a conservative majority, it is far less predictable and prone to voting along 'party' lines. I'm really enjoying this season.

I'd not be surprised if he survives to the end of his term but a second one seems unlikely. Not impossible, certainly, but I think both voters and his party are moving on.

Your link shows Trump recently edged in front of Obama's approval rating at the equivalent time (before falling back only slightly).

It's all still to play for.

It's looking very likely that the vote on impeachment will be driven by the Democrats and Republicans looking ahead to coming elections, both presidential and in the senate and house of representatives.

Many republicans will be scared of voting against Trump as their voters may see it as a betrayal against the cause. However there are signs that many republicans would turn coat against him as they're seeing him as too much of a liability.
Democrats will probably vote against Trump, but it's not out of the question that some would feel that a likeable Democrat Presidential candidate would have much better chances against Trump than against a more moderate Republican candidate who might emerge out of the wreckage of an impeachment.

A lot will hang on what happens to Pence. Some Republicans might be happy to ditch Trump to see a coronation, but the whispers are that Pence knows pretty much everything and the Democrats may try and take him out too, knowing that with both of them gone Pelosi is next in line.

The Honda Vision usually looks a bit half-arsed, but I don't mind it at all in that photo. It doesn't really suit that front wheel, but the line of the fairing is quite elegant.

This one ticks all the boxes for me.

Japanese cars tend to be very reliable and you'll get another 100,000 miles out of it easily. That's about 5 years worth of driving, if you're commuting to Bournemouth.

OP says he doesn't know much about cars; buying a write-off can be a minefield, even if it looks straight.


It looks tidy enough, but I'd want to see a service history before buying anything with that sort of mileage. 150k is a perfectly reasonable mileage for something that has been well looked after, but it could be on death's door if the owner's idea of routine maintenance is "take it to the garage when the grinding noises get unbearably loud". The assortment of stains on the upholstery aren't a great sign. It's also being sold on trade terms, so you're pretty much shit out of luck if it's a lemon.

I've just passed my test and I'm looking a runabout. Unfortunately at my current residence the insurance seems to be extra wank, so I've had to downsize my expectations from superminis to city cars.

That in mind I've been looking at Hyundai i10s mostly, and also found a Fiat Panda 1.1 from 2010 with 39000 miles on it.
There's those peugeot/toyota/citroen city cars in the same cost bad but they've got no space in the boot at all so I want something boxier for when I want to carry things.

I just want someone to give me an opinion before I go have a look. I like Pandas too; they're pleasingly boxy and practical, the cabin is less hideous than the toyota Aygos of similar vintage and the body is better looking than the blobby i10 or old kia picantos.

Panda is definitely a good choice for what you're looking at - but don't write off those Toyota Aygos; you might think they look a bit shit for your first car, but the bit you haven't discovered yet is maintenance, and those Japanese cars are way more durable and reliable than the Italians.

Aygos are rebadged citroen/peugots built in the Czech republic.
Yeah they're more or less reliable and cheap to maintain but they're not toyotas underneath.

The name of the sampled instrument in these tracks is called a Rhodes piano, right?

It sounds amazing when it's paired with hip hop drums. I'd happily listen to albums of just this alone.

Yep, it's a Rhodes piano. Probably best known in recent years from the intro to Portishead's Roads. You might enjoy Miles Davis' landmark album In A Silent Way, which heavily features the Rhodes.

I used to leave GTA2 on the menu screen just to listen to that track. It is indeed funky as all shit.

You can get a reasonable approximation of it in most DAWs by putting some sort of generic hammond-style organ plugin through a fuzz and rolling off all the top end.

I have listened to and loved this album before, though I didn't make the specific instrument connection. It's a beautiful bit of jazz, but the itch I'm trying to scratch with this thread is more like hip hop drums over simple samples.
