28571 Minor Rants and Piss-Offs, Mark VIII
It appears largethreadmodlad has also locked the previous iteration of this thread; Mark VIII it is, then.

I take perfect care of my nails. I don't bite them, I cut in the standard flat formation every 3-5 days, and scrub under them in the shower. So why the actual fuck are my cuticles bleeding? Putting the plaster over to catch the blood means I can't play my bass properly, and that pisses me off.

That thing is utterly tremendous. Needs a bit more handbrake on the turns, but otherwise superb; particularly the back firing when he brakes.

Want one.

I love those Fiat 126's, even non-modified they're exactly the sort of bollocks I like - tiny cars built to soviet specifications. The 126p (p for polski) was particularly popular in soviet Poland, could fix it with a spanner and cost nothing. I'd argue it's a perfect London city car even today, and a lot of fun on a rally or other such event.

Makes me wonder how a high-stress motor racing style like rally is compatible with having a backseat driver, even though necessary for theoretical seamless navigation.

Backseat drivers doing a Hyacinth Bucket must surely be someone's /101.

The co-driver is really in charge of the car, because by the time the driver can see the next corner it's too late for him to react. At best the driver needs advanced warning to know how to set the car up for the corner and at worst the corner entry is completely blind. Without a co-driver, the driver would have to pootle along at a snail's pace; conversely, if the co-driver makes a mistake, the result is usually a crash and often a big crash.

Sorry to be a knob, but what about aviation?

As far as I know, the co-pilot is there to assist in correcting any minor fault in navigation, vector, offering an opposing view on ground level weather on approach, provide correct information for cap'n to air traffic control etc., and of course to take over when the main pilot's shagging all of the fit stewards/esses. I know that's flippant, but there's got to've been some proper cockups.

It's most often the other way around in aviation - the co-pilot does most of the work, while the pilot oversees what is going on.

I think the key difference is that aviators have far more time to think, communicate and deal with problems. Most aviation accidents are the result of a sequence of errors, typically with many complex and subtle factors. Cockpit voice recordings from fatal accidents are usually pretty grim to listen to, because the flight crew know that they're going to crash but just can't figure out why or what to do about it. There's an entire field of study called cockpit resource management that investigates how the pilot and co-pilot think, communicate and manage their shared physical and mental workload.

A rally car on a special stage is being driven on the limit constantly, with almost no room for error. If you're not right on the brink of crashing, you're going too slowly. The driver isn't really reacting to what he can see, because he's going too fast for that. He's driving into corners that he can only picture in his mind based on what the co-driver is telling him. The driver has to place total faith in the co-driver and the accuracy of his pace notes.

You can sort of get a sense for it from watching onboards. Notice how often the driver goes into a blind corner or crest on full gas. Pay attention to just how much the car is sliding around and think about what would happen if you were carrying a bit too much speed or turned in a bit too late - if you're on the limit of grip, your brake pedal is of very limited help. If you're particularly keen-eyed, you might see the driver kick out the back end or change his line in anticipation of a corner that he can't yet see.

I've never driven a real rally car on a course, but I have played Colin McRae (or whatever it is called now he has disgraced himself and died) extensively - I can attest that if you turn in exactly when the co-driver gives you the instruction and blindly follow them, which often involves turning the wheel before the corner, you whizz round all the courses and win.

I want a pillow that is slim but firm-ish. My old ones weren't memory foam so I'm hesitan to get some of those.
So why is it every other fucking pillow is some huge pumped up foam monstrosity that collapses like a blackhole the moment your head touches it so your head is enveloped in it?

I like feather pillows, not because they're soft, but because I can squish the feathers up into a tighter ball so I have the support where I want it. I sleep on my side though so it's not so easy to do that if you lie on your back.

You can get thinner firmer pillows they're just a pain to find though.

I've been using some pillows from Wilko which have a slab of dense foam within the usual soft filling, like the inside of a Feast lolly but in pillow form. They're pretty decent and inexpensive.

My other half has a really fucking irritating habit of sitting her fat arse right on top of pillows/cushions just, straight up just sat on them with her full body weight.

That's not what cushions are for, you have to treat them with respect or else they just end up as pancakes. You use them to lean against for comfort. It does my box in. You don't fucking need a cushion when you have an arse like hers.

Why are women just so dense sometimes.

FFS, is there an energy company that doesn't insist on hiking your payments every few months? Mine have just told me they want to go from £60 up to £80 a month, because they think my usage is going to go up in the winter. I'm south-facing in a tower block and haven't had to use the heating in 3 years, and I've been stuck inside for most of the past 6 months, I think my energy usage is going to be a bit flatter this year.

Oh how I wish this shit was real. The only way I'm ever going to get a good night's sleep ever again is I deafen myself. It doesn't matter where I go, there's constant noise at a level higher than earplugs can help at.

Before, it was the construction. Now it's absolute shit cunt neighbours screaming and hollering outside, blasting deafening music from their cars for hours on end, 7 nights a week - since Sunday before last they haven't taken a single night off.

I just want to sleep in peace, but apparently I'm cursed. Noise follows me - went for a can in the park the other day and a drum circle set up behind us. Had a presentation at work and someone was leaf blowing outside for the entire thing.

It's constant, inescapable, and I'm quite literally so fucking tired of it.

They do this because you haven't phoned them to complain and because you don't give them regular meter readings. They will come and fit a meter that can send reading remotely and it saves a lot of hassle.

I'd like to send my musculo-skeletal system into Room /101/ please.

It's thought-to-be-but-not-officially-diagnosed-despite-several-years-of-blood-tests-and-x-rays EDS (Hypermobility Type), and all it means is that any time I do try and get off my fat arse to do exercise, my joints make awful crunching noises and I'm in agonising pain for days. Obviously, being fat doesn't help that situation, and I know it's 80% diet, but the psychological benefits of exercise helped me stay on course the first time I lost weight.

I was actually getting quite into beat saber for cardio, but now I'll have to take even that easy. The only things I can realistically do are cycling or x-training at the gym as they are effectively isometric.

At my local gym the pool is under a strict booking system, and I'd still not be comfortable really. I do (or at least did) swim from time to time, once every couple of weeks, but the lack of entertainment makes the seconds feel like hours.

Still, nothing beats getting into the pool after a sauna.
