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.

If you weren't aware, Hermes have rebranded as Evri. Just so you know what to avoid.

If (like me) you live in a house that's hard to find from the street, the real-time tracking is invaluable. With other couriers, it's pot luck as to whether they'll find the house, but with Amazon I can just go out and flag them down as they approach.

>>33574 mild /101/ - it turned up at 8 this morning, completely unannounced until the phone rang saying the gates were shut.
Ah well. 6th October did feel unlikely.

I turned on Radio 4 this morning, to discover that the guests on Saturday Live were Mel C and Rylan Clark. If the Tories want to privatise the BBC, I say let them - I don't see what's worth protecting any more.
|>>|| No. 33584
I like Rylan's Radio 2 show, but he's a bit much when he's on the telly.
I can't remember the last time I actually watched anything on the BBC.
|>>|| No. 33585
I have absolutely no problem with Rylan being on Radio 2. I have no problem with Rylan, I think he's a charming and often incisive chap. I do have a problem with Radio 4 becoming Radio 2 without the music.
Going through the schedule on Radio 4, how much of it is meaningfully more highbrow than a typical middle-market podcast? In Our Time, The Briefing Room, The World Tonight, maybe Inside Science and More Or Less. Beyond that, it's just the same low-effort bumwaffle that you can find in a hundred other places. The argument for the license fee has always been that the BBC can do things that no-one else can, but that doesn't feel particularly true any more.
|>>|| No. 33586
The worst thing about Radio 4 is that they have conspired to ensure that no matter what time of day I take my smoke break, no matter what day of the week, it's either The Archers or bloody Woman's Hour.
Fuck 'em, sell it to MurdochCorp.

Had a parcel stolen. It was only about a tenner's worth of cable ties and tacks but because I need them tomorrow I'm going to have to either pay out of my arse for them at Screwfix or pray that "tomorrow by 1pm" bezos delivery means that.

That goes for a lot of things with the general public, particularly where personal finance is involved.
Many people don't understand the energy price cap and think they can use as much as they want without paying more once they've reached that £2,500 figure. Many people aren't aware that higher rate taxpayers pay less in NI so the difference between that and the basic rate band is only actually 10% net. Most people don't have a clue what a pension is. You get the idea.

Consider me one of them. What do you mean they pay less NI?

If your gross income is higher than the Upper Earnings Limit (currently £4,198 per month), you pay a reduced rate of 3.25% on earnings above that limit, as opposed to the normal rate of 13.25%.
In theory, this is because of the principle that National Insurance is a kind of insurance scheme. High earners don't get more benefit from the State Pension or Statutory Sick Pay than middle earners. In practice, National Insurance has just been another tax for decades and the revenues aren't ring-fenced for any particular purpose.
The British tax system is relatively straightforward by international standards, but there are still a fair few weird quirks.

After a couple of months of trying to find a home, family have been chiming in with suggestions, but it's been difficult to keep track of them. So yesterday I finally bit the bullet and created a Trello board so I don't have to look at fucking Rightmove on my phone, and today an agency tells me that I'm the preferred candidate on a flat I looked at earlier this week.

There's a gameshow on the BBC right now but Alex Scott is the presenter and she can't speak clearly for shit. One of the questions starter "premiering in 2022..." and it took me a while to click she wasn't on about Premier Inn because she was reading the question off the card like a small child.
|>>|| No. 33596
For as long as Fara Williams exists, Alex Scott will never be the worst female football pundit to listen to. Although I can't understand why she would present a gameshow.

The BBC have schemes for increasing ethnic minority representation on screen, which is how Dion Dublin ended up presenting Homes Under The Hammer.
Alex Scott ticks a lot of boxes. She's the socially acceptable shade of brown. Female. She's at the very least bisexual. The BBC have promoted her quite heavily in recent years but she's not got the charisma to carry off presenting a game show by herself.

Even the preview image turns my stomach. Obesity at this point is a lifestyle choice based on lack of discipline if it isn't caused by an underlying health issue.

Fat girls can be pretty, it's not out of the realms of possibility. But they appear to have intentionally made that picture a caricature of an ugly pig nosed porker.
I blame hipsters for everything. They destroyed culture. Nowadays, anything that's wrong is the new right. Ugly is the new attractive, to be force fed to you in woke Amazon shows and forecast shipping videogames. Empty contrarianism as the basis of a value system.

>if it isn't caused by an underlying health issue.
We've already been here several times, but it's unfathomable to me that people get this far with this idea but refuse consider whether a lack of discipline that's serious enough to endanger your life and change your body might possibly be an underlying health issue.
Fat people need therapy not diets.
|>>|| No. 33609
I guess it depends on your definition of pretty.
There's a fine line between not being skin and bones and having just too much weight on your hips.
>I blame hipsters for everything. They destroyed culture.
Quite, but I don't see that they had much bearing on fat acceptance.
>Ugly is the new attractive, to be force fed to you in woke Amazon shows and forecast shipping videogames.
Not to me, it isn't. I refuse to have that wool pulled over my eyes. I reserve the right to find a lass unattractive because she weighs too much, and not be shamed or cancelled for it.
There's also a double standard between genders here. It's ok for women to be obese, and any lad who turns a lass down because she's a porker is a shallow patriachical arsehole. But when was the last time you heard somebody say that fat lads deserve to be with hot women too. Right, so there's more pressure on women in our society to conform to beauty ideals. That's a given, and that's not a good thing. But it can't mean that only women get to have their cake and eat it. see what I did there
|>>|| No. 33610
It was a genuine question. I stated that obesity was either caused by a lack of discipline OR an underlying health issue. The lad seems to think that there's some third way I've not considered in which case I'd like to hear him out.
|>>|| No. 33611
You seem remarkably troubled by other peoples' obesity. What's it to you?
If it's the load it puts on are NHS, your ire might (or might not) be better spent railing against the funding fuckwitteries we're seeing, which even if everyone was optimal weight would still see it fucked into the ground in a generation.
If you just want someone to hate, fair enough, I guess. There have always been, and will always be, fatties, You'll be fine.
It just seems like a lot of effort to keep railing, and isn't going to change anything.
|>>|| No. 33612
Also, I meet fatties with massive discipline in other fields, they just don't care (as much as you do) about their weight. It's not stopping them doing anything.
Obviously doesn't apply to 500kg+, but the 'obese' are fully functional human beings with a bit more lard than is advisable for long term health. Don't like them? Don't fuck them.
|>>|| No. 33613
I did mean actually proper ham planets and not what the flawed BMI considers to be obese. If you're not putting extra strain on the NHS (which if you're a couple of kilos into the red, you're probably not) then you're alright by me.
Obviously fat birds have more of a risk of adverse health the larger they get though with very little margin for error but that's a whole different topic in and of itself.

Nobody looks good from that angle.
Every time I fuck your mum she makes me a sandwich.
>I reserve the right to find a lass unattractive because she weighs too much, and not be shamed or cancelled for it.
You have that right, just as you have the right to believe that Coldplay are the best band ever. Your broader argument is conflating two completely separate phenomena. The nth-wave fisherpersons advocating for fat acceptance would be the first to condemn the Third Tit Admirer community as being a bunch of misogynist brutes who just want to create a new unattainable beauty standard to subjugate women with.
The internet has disintermediated lechery. Twenty years ago, the mainstream media decided who it was OK to fancy and presented us with a narrow range of images to perv over. The internet cut out that middleman and presented us with an infinite range of choices in a judgement-free environment. In that environment, a lot of blokes realised that actually prefer women with squishy bits.
That external judgement has always been present in how we view fat female bodies, best encapsulated by the old trope of "I'd shag her, but I wouldn't want my mates finding out". Not to get all Marxist about it, but consumer capitalism depends fundamentally on manipulating our desires. The ideal consumer is just as much a manufactured product as the things being sold to them; the foundation of consumer capitalism is dissatisfaction. We must be trained to desire things that do not satisfy us.

Don't start appropriating solid Marxist principles to justify your degeneracy, VICElad.
You wouldn't like it if I kept trying to shove furry porn down your throat and insisting that it was everyone else who was judgemental and prudish for not liking it. Sometimes it is, in fact, you that's a sick fuck and you should keep it to yourself, for the sake of common decency.
I reject the notion that things have to be acceptable. They don't, and in fact, they shouldn't be. Lots of things are better when they're taboo. Maybe that's too much of a Lacanian, Freudian Zizek kind of perspective for you, but it's the truth.
Nothing is as offensive as the idea we should find fat fetishism acceptable. Their very appeal is in the fact you're not supposed to like them, and deep down, you know it.

Most of the population is overweight or obese. Being sexually attracted to normal people is not a fetish.

I'm struggling to understand what marxism has to do will all this in the first place.
Is he saying that there are more fat people in capitalism than in marxism?
|>>|| No. 33623
I'm saying that it is in the interests of consumer capitalism to create a perpetual sense of dissatisfaction. We are constantly sold and re-sold the idea that we are not good enough, that our lives are not good enough, that what we truly desire is perpetually just out of reach.
There can be no end to this process, because the economic system in which we live is completely dependent on miserable people spending money they don't have on stuff they don't need. In a consumer capitalist society in which most people are fat, it is necessary for us to be taught that fat is ugly; equally, in a consumer capitalist society in which most people are thin, it would be necessary for us to be taught that thin is ugly. We must be told that we are inadequate so that we may be sold something which promises to cure that inadequacy.
It is not a matter of "lowering your standards", but realising that your standards were imposed on you by people who spend billions of pounds a year on psychological manipulation in order to undermine your sense of self.

You would normally have a point, but this website does not own a TV, almost certainly has an adblocker installed on every device they own, and is generally at best a very minimal participant in mainstream culture. I don't think you can really describe us as helpless consumerist zombies out of They Live.
The forces you are describing exist, but the fact remains that you're just a wrong 'un, lad.
|>>|| No. 33627
Yes there is. You just don't want to admit there is because you obtain surplus enjoyment from the impression of helpless entrapment. Just like when a fat lass plants her suffocatingly massive arse cheeks directly on your face.
