Technically it's a truss frame by virtue of the extra tube between the seat tube and top tube, but most bike mechanics would recognise it as "a piece of shit". The odd geometry makes it vaguely resemble a full-susser, but serves only to make the frame weaker and heavier.

Take away the extra tube and the kink in the downtube and you're left with a classic step-through frame.

A "fashion" frame. It's functional to an extent, but it is needlessly complex, as evidenced by being both a truss frame with a pointless bend and not the convenience of a step through frame.

I'd recommend a tourer frame if you ever expect to carry or tow weight, and any other kind of simple frame if you want to get about. That kind of fancy frame is going to get you from A-to-B and any bike that gets you there is a good bike, but you can make your life easier by getting the proper tool for the job.

Music gear was my primary concern with Brexit, and there was briefly a rough patch last year when everything went official. There was a dodgy transition for a few months where European retailers were just offloading VAT and customs payments to the customer, payable to the courier at the door.

But a year later, Thomann and DV still manage to undercut UK retailers by 10-20% in a lot of cases. Even on gear made in the UK, they are somehow selling it cheaper than UK shops, and their prices include VAT and customs. A Marshall head, which is made in the UK, costs £1299 at G4M or GAK, but is going for just a shade over £1000 from Ze Germans.

How are they doing this, even with all the supply chain nonsense going on right now? Are they just eating the VAT and customs charges while undercutting the competition just to keep the UK customers? Are the UK retailers relying on people not knowing about the tax/customs exemption in order to charge more? Or did it turn out the Brexit deal wasn't actually all that terrible now we've figured it all out? It seems they have a similar arrangement for Swiss customers too.

(And let's not even think about all the costs and energy wasted transporting these goods from Milton Keynes to Treppendorf then all the way back to Leicester or wherever.)

So yeah, I'm still waiting for Brexit to actually impact my life.

Thomann's prices are low because they buy a shitload of the product and pass that wholesale saving onto the customer. It's just something you can't compete with unless you also have a comically large warehouse like they do. The supply chain is irrelevant if you ordered 50,000 amps six years ago and are halfway through selling them. They ARE the supply.

Speaking of Thomann, anytime anyone brings them up I feel compelled to mention how surprised I was that their own brand bass and guitar bags were/are so good. I bought a bass one nearly 20 years ago now and it's still going strong.

>Morrisons has backed down after customers complained about its labelling of a chicken meat product as containing "non-EU salt and pepper".

>The supermarket chain's salt-and-pepper chicken crown features the Union Flag on its label, which says that it is "made from British chicken". The label provoked an angry reaction on Twitter, including one accusation of stoking "anti-EU hatred".

>In response, the firm said the wording was "an error for which we apologise. We are changing the packaging immediately," A spokesman for Morrisons said: "It is adhering to packaging regulations rather than making any political point." The supermarket said it would change the packaging and de-emphasise the mention of non-EU salt and pepper, but said it would still have to be included somewhere on the wrapping because of packaging laws. Among the reactions from customers, some pointed out the irony of a soon-to-be US-owned supermarket displaying its British credentials.

>Last month, Morrisons shareholders approved a multi-billion pound takeover offer from US private equity group Clayton, Dubilier & Rice (CD&R). The move comes in the midst of a debate in the food retailing industry about firms' increasing tendency to use patriotic imagery on packaging, with trade publication The Grocer identifying it as part of a post-Brexit "culture war".

>However, those who support the trend see the "made in the UK" tag as a sign of quality rather than a political statement.

I never recovered from the end of university. I'm nearly 30 now and have not made a single friend or acquaintane since the day university ended and my established friendship group disintegrated overnight. I do everything alone. I drink alone, I go to the gym alone, my job is remote. I've never been in a serious relationship and likely never will be.

I don't fit in the world, I never had problems socialising or talking to strangers or whatever, but I don't fit in society. It happens around me. Crying now. I don't know what to do. Attempted suicide a few years ago, obviously failed. Nobody knows about it, because there is nobody to know about it.

My birthday is in a couple weeks, as I've been feeling a little blue lately I tried to organise something but have found that I don't really have any friends anymore.

What's the most effective way of making friends in the big city. I don't have any musical talent and I'm struggling to find the kind of volunteering that would make me friends my own age (early 30s). I can have relationships and people seem to enjoy my company but I just can't seem to make friends. My career would be the obvious choice but I tend to build a wall around myself in the office and struggle in a group setting.

Are house shares a good way of making friends or is it a horrible gamble? Do I really have to listen to what they're saying about using bumble for friends or does that just lead to getting myself porked?

If you go to a pub quiz on your own, you will be surrounded by other weirdos and, more importantly, the quizmaster will most likely be amiable and outgoing and eager to befriend you. He will also be friends with other people, whom you can then befriend too. You might need to do this a few times, but pub quizzes are great so it'll be worth it.

House shares are a very expensive gamble. You could end up with a bunch of likeminded people and forge friendships, or you might live with selfish cunts and realise you're stuck with them for 12 months. I've had it both ways. I wouldn't recommend it as a way to make friends, just because it's so risky and could have you living in a shit environment for a year.

>NASA alert warns huge solar flare will make 'direct hit' with Earth this weekend

>A major solar flare that erupted from the Sun on Thursday, October 28, will batter the Earth over the weekend. The flare, which experts at NASA have dubbed as a "significant solar flare", has fired off the Sun in one of the strongest storms of the current weather cycle.

>Solar flares are divided into categories according to their strength and the one that was fired off yesterday was an X1-class solar flare predicted to enter the atmosphere on Saturday or Sunday, causing widespread power outages and communication failures. It has already caused a temporary, but strong, radio blackout in parts of South America, according to the U.S. Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC).

>The one currently headed towards Earth is an X1 flare which despite being the least intense of the X-class flares is likely wreak havoc by interfering with radio and satellite communications.

Are solar flares visible? I thought they just wiped out all technology worldwide and sent us back to the Stone Age. And that's unlikely to happen, or the news would be shouting about it more. So it's just a question of whether I'll see it and whether my telly will go off. It's likely to be cloudy over the weekend, so I assume there will be no exciting armageddons (armagedda?) this Sunday.

I remember seeing a list of "things that can destroy the world that nobody is talking about", probably around 2014, and I remember thinking a pandemic sounded really boring and I hoped we got a solar flare or the Yellowstone volcano instead. I was right about the pandemic; it was dull as shit. So fingers crossed it's the end of technology instead.

>Are solar flares visible?

Not without a solar telescope. The Aurora Borealis are caused by charged particles from solar wind interacting with the ionosphere.

The Mirror are hyping this up out of all proportion. There was a moderately large coronal mass ejection yesterday, but nobody will notice other than seafarers, pilots, astronomers and radio nerds. There might be minor disruption to some niche communications systems for a few hours or days, but it won't affect your mobile phone or anything like that. Anyone who relies on the HF systems that are affected by solar flares is trained to deal with them, because they're a frequent occurrence.

Solar weather operates on an 11 year cycle of activity and we're currently at the quietest part of that cycle. This X1 flare is of interest to those handful of people it does affect because it suggests that solar activity might be picking up, but it's completely irrelevant to 99.999% of people. We had a number of flares 10 to 30 times larger than this one during the peak of the solar cycle between 2000 and 2003.

A carved pumpkin will last somewhere around a week, depending on the weather and conditions it is kept in, so you haven't left it too late.

Make sure you toast the seeds and some of the flesh when you scoop it out.

/job/14119 Microsoft Teams Interview
Good day all.

I have an upcoming interview via Microsoft Teams, I'm frankly new to the whole world of web interviews so I wanted to see if I could get some advice as to how to conduct myself, what I can expect and more importantly how I can be really prepared. The last time I had an interview of any kind was in 2017 so my head was spun for a little bit getting back into the process of preparing my material for this stuff.

I have a work laptop with Teams already on it (it's not a program that I've used before) and a headset, I guess I'll have to do a test call on it to make sure everything sounds and looks okay.

The actual role knowledge is all on me but if anyone can provide some advice on things I should know, who have done this before, would be greatly appreciated.

I work in a team which includes several engineers who have spent years fighting echo cancellation problems in conferencing systems. If my mic was pissing them off, I would hear about it instantly.
Teams may be wretched in many ways, but on the machines we use, it does echo and background noise cancellation tolerably. That said, my Thinkpad is about to be refreshed by something from Dell, so I imagine it'll all go to crap and I'll have to go back to headsets.

Man goes on trial in Germany accused of castrating men on kitchen table

A man has gone on trial in Germany accused of murdering one man and mutilating several others by performing illegal operations on their genitals.

The 66-year-old electrician told a regional court in Munich that he performed the procedures at the men’s request. The defendant, whose name was not released for privacy reasons, claimed he initially offered sexual services on sadomasochistic websites in order to earn money to pay off debts.

Later, the man allegedly began performing operations on his kitchen table in the town of Markt Schwaben, telling his victims he was a trained medical professional, the German news agency dpa reported. The defendant told the court he castrated or partially amputated the genitals of eight men between July 2018 and March 2020. But he denied responsibility for the death of one man, who died several days after a procedure. The dead man’s body was found in a box by police three weeks later.

Roughly the same reason the Japs are such raging perverts, they just manifest differently. Whereas Japan's is rooted in the humiliation and trauma of total defeat by nuclear weaponry, Germany's is more or less pure holocaust guilt self-loathing.

Formed in 1904. It's used as a protest song against the proposed change from Hull City to Hull Tigers.

Do you reckon we'll win League One? It would be the first actual league title since 1966.

In the bag, hullfa.g. We should be beating Wigan, and probably Charlton as well with current form. Peterborough have to play Lincoln and Donny, so our nearest neighbours in the league could give us a hand.

Turkish TV tycoon agrees to buy Hull City for £30m - and vows to employ a Turkish coaching staff AND players 'to fly our country's flag in England'

Just glad to see the back of the Allams, so I can finally end my boycott of home games. As much as the Allam family has done - and continues to do - for the city, their name change proposal and how they handled the feedback is a massive stain on their reputation that I don't think a lot of people will allow them to recover from.

I am a 29 year old male, my partner a 29 year old woman. We've been together for 10 years. We lost our virginity to each other. Neither of us have slept with any one else. We both strongly consider each other our life partners.

I've always been more sexually minded than her, my libido is much higher. This has been a problem at certain points of our relationship that I have been happy to bring up. She always responds understandingly and it fixes temporarily.

But recently I've begun to really strongly desire other women. I think it has something to do with me turning 30 next year, despite it being an arbitrary number, really.

This is something I've even brought upto her in the past, during these conversations, and she even seems quite understanding. Recognising that whilst she herself doesn't really care, she respects it's important to me. That said anything beyond a simple recognition seems beyond us. It I were to directly ask "can I sleep with another woman?" she would respond (unsurprisingly) negatively.

I feel kind of stuck, really. What I have with her is absolutely incredible and easily worth never sleeping with someone else. But it eats at me. Not always, but enough. In the shower, during a post sex moment of clarity, when I'm served by a pretty barista, and so on.

What do I do? Like I said, she is actually quite receptive of me bringing this up. And as we age seems to be more and more understanding and calm. But I can see it from her point of view as well and it must feel awful. I've asked her if she feels the same sort of thing and her answer is basically "kind of, but I don't really care". Like I said she's not very sexually orientated anyway, even once a week is a bit of a stretch. Is this something I learn to just live with? I could never cheat on her, it would break my heart and obviously break hers if she found out. But I can't contend with this feeling all my life, surely.

I get the feeling the word "queer" is starting to lose all meaning too. By this point it seems to be just the word you use if you're not really gay or trans or any of that stuff, but you want to fit in with the hip rainbow acronym clique all the same.

Undeniably yes. That's pretty much what the word is treated as; they reclaimed the slur and shared it with anyone who wants to be even more special than L, G, B and T. I don't see how it differs from the + in LGBTQIA+, but I'm sure they would all be scandalised to hear that.

There was an episode of Bernard's Watch where Bernard had stopped time whilst he was on one of his little escapades, trying to catch a rabbit that was on the loose or something like that, and when he unfroze time several hours later it turned out that the chicken his mum had been roasting was burnt to a crisp because it had continued to cook during all of the hours it was frozen.

This has always stayed with me because I thought it was so fucked up. Imagine you've just got into a red hot bath to relax and next thing you know your tender flesh is peeling away from the bone and congealing around you because, completely unbeknownst to you, you've actually been boiled alive for several hours whilst some little scamp has frozen time so he can be at two different friend's birthday parties at the same time or whatever. Fucked up, I tell you.

Neutering dogs is largely done for human convenience. Anyone telling you otherwise is misdirecting you in an effort to be responsible about unwanted pup litters, at the expense of the health of the dog.

Neutering has some positive and negative health effects associated with it, but I believe the negative outweigh the positive and I personally wouldn't do it if I had a dog. That comes with the responsibility of supervising the dog, not letting him rut or spend time around females in heat. I'd want to avoid all of the potential problems down the road, especially the joint and bone issues that would seriously inhibit a dogs quality of life.

Which is one reason why it's strongly recommended to neuter free-range cats. You can supervise a dog if you are a committed dog owner, but you don't know what your cat does when he or she is out and about.

A friend had an unneutered male Rottweil, which one time actually spunked on the sofa pillows after dry humping them for several minutes. Good times.

The references at the bottom of this article might be of interest. Generally it's bad for the muskuloskeletal system, but take it on balance with the risk that you might end up with a litter of pups you don't know what to do with: https://www.akcchf.org/educational-resources/library/articles/an-update-on-the-health.html

I wish I knew British sign language. I bet it's a bastard to keep practice but makes for a nice side gig. Plus if I wanted to be BRILLIANT and deny disabled people access to the news I could just sign 'bollocks' again and again.

For the benefit of people who don't know, full-on BSL uses movement and facial expressions as well as hand gestures. Non-manual aspects are sign language equivalents to tone and emphasis in spoken language.

I like the rhubarb and custard ones that look similar, but they're all pink and yellow and green. My parents once got me a kilo box of those from Makro for Christmas.

Do you lads keep up with news in your industry at all? I feel like a bit of a dipshit as I've missed huge developments in the NHS and private healthcare/research since COVID-19.

Aside from maybe renewing my FT subscription, is there anything else I can do to keep on top of things?

What I do is when I'm slacking off at work I go and waste time on the internet. I'm guilty of posting here now that I work from home but in the beforetime I would browse industry websites and various philosophical think pieces about life that I could get away with at work.

I don't see why FT would give you this, do they have a section on it?

My work is very weird, in that it seems to be being run with the explicit aim of making sure nobody ever has to do any work. I come here to complain about the twats who do nothing quite often, but whenever I'm busy, this seems to be a great affront to the corporate philosophy, like I'm not supposed to be doing anything either. Anyway, I have a lot of free time when I'm sitting at a desk doing IT support, and once I've read all the worthwhile stories on the BBC website, I will then migrate to theregister.com, which has news from the IT world. And that's all I really do, industry-wise. They don't want me going to trade shows and things, because then I wouldn't be at work, playing the glorified receptionist and surreptitiously looking at britfa.gs on my phone.

There are probably people on Twitter you could follow who would keep you abreast of NHS developments, but if you're a brain surgeon or something, I think you just have to read real research and you'll know better than me where they keep that stuff.

If there's some kind of professional registration for your workplace, they'll usually have newsletters and what have you. the IBMS send out a magazine every month to registered scientists.

Also your boss probably gets a shitload of junk-mail magazines that are intended to flog new equipment, but they do have useful things in sometimes, so ask him to pass them on to you instead of putting them straight in the bin.

But overall I don't think you need to bother unless you've got designs on being some kind of top manager exec type who makes decisions and all that. Personally I couldn't give a fuck, I just want to get paid.

Sometimes I, personally, don't want every YouTube link to automatically embed a gigantic video in my post. Doing it for one domain and not the other seems like an ideal compromise, and I will eat your mum's face if you turn every post with ten video links into a full visible playlist that takes a long time to scroll past.
