438151 The New Adventures of Mid-Week
Now that all the excitement has died down I thought it time we redo the mid-week thread. What are you two up-to?


I've organised a date for the weekend but have come to realise that I'd better keep something of a conversation going unless I want to be stood up. This is going to be tedious. I might want to think about doing some work today as well.

>Women gatekeep parenting. Men are not seen as equal parents to women.

And then they complain that they have to do everything.

I think women have more of an urge to micromanage their kids, where every detail needs to be considered. There's also plenty of peer pressure from other women who think that everything always needs to be "hands-on". Just take a cursory look at the teaser headlines on mumsnet, and you'll see what I mean.

Whereas dads very generally seem to have more a laissez-faire approach to parenting. When I think back to the way my dad raised me, his main concern was that I didn't start stealing hubcaps like the neighbour's kid. He cared what I was doing, but he only felt compelled to step in when I was getting myself in trouble.

I remember reading an article in the Guardian about shared parental leave. There were a number of comments from men saying they'd have loved to take it but their partners absolutely refused to give up any of their maternity leave for it.

And that extends to a lot of younglads who were waited on by their mums since they were born, and who then can't function when they first move out from their parents. One of my friends in student housing always left his dirty socks on the floor in the communal showers, until somebody pointed out to him that none of us were going to fucking carry his dirty socks after him. Poor lad didn't even know how to boil an egg when we first met. He once tried to make tomato soup by pouring some whole unpeeled tomatoes into a pot, without water, and turning it on.

My uncle was an RAF officer for almost 20 years, and he swears by it in terms of teaching young people things like self reliance and responsibility.

Never would have been my cup of tea. I don't like people shouting at me. And I still turned out fine. But I can still imagine some overgrown mummy's boys benefiting from being subjected to that kind of structure and discipline.

Cos it was coined over dinner. This is from the Wikipedia article, I would have assumed if you had looked it up you would have come across it...

>The term spoons in this sense was coined by Christine Miserandino in 2003 in her essay "The Spoon Theory". In her essay, Miserandino describes a conversation between herself and a friend at a diner. The discussion was initiated by a question from the friend in which she asked what having lupus feels like. To explain, Miserandino took spoons from nearby tables to use as a visual aid. She handed her friend twelve spoons and asked her to describe the events of a typical day, taking a spoon away for each activity. In this way, she demonstrated that her spoons, or units of energy, must be rationed to avoid running out before the end of the day. She also asserted that it is possible to exceed one's daily limit, but that doing so means borrowing from the future and may result in not having enough spoons the next day. Miserandino suggested that spoon theory can be helpful for explaining the experience of living with any disease or illness.

Huh, I'd never heard of spoons theory but it's also true from about a lot of things - I had loads of mates at uni who popped modafinil to get revision etc done but from all I could tell is it meant you 'borrowed' concentration from the next day, so the net work you got done was still the same.

I guess it works if you use it before a crunch deadline with nothing to do for a few days after, but the way my course was structured meant that realistically once you got one piece of work done there was another to do pretty quickly after.

I tried to do my life by spoons last night but it just seems a bit off for me. Not to discount the experience of the disabled but I know I can be much more productive over a sustained period of time just by pushing myself, working smart, being motivated, finding joy in the task and generally getting into the habit. If I put my life into spoons though then I'll just say 'that's enough spoons for me today' even when there's disabled people running circles around me.

For example, nothing will motivate a teenager more to clean his room than a girl coming over. Yet if he just sleeps until the afternoon because he was up all night on the computer then I'm sure his room will be a mess.

>just by pushing myself, working smart, being motivated

So where does your motivation come from? The point is that you as a healthy and presumably neurotypical individual have the capability to motivate yourself, you are able to summon that extra effort out of the ether. For a lot of people that simply isn't true- They only have a limited number of spoons.

That's the framework they have to structure their life around, whether they like it or not. I'm the lad who called it especially shit, by the way. Your fundamental misapprehension about it is exactly why I don't like it, it doesn't do anything to explain to people like yourself, why this person can only do a set number spoon's worth a day. It doesn't explain to you why they can't just think about the delayed gratification puttin in an extra spoon's worth of effort might make them feel better in the long run.

It just sounds like some daft infantile snowflake shite, doesn't it? It just asserts its premise, you only have 12 spoons, and doesn't say why. I don't blame you for respond with that same old "Well you just have to try a bit harder and you'll feel better in the end!" reasoning because the spoon thing sounds totally arbitrary to you.

I see and hear a lot when a bloke is punching above his weight "oh he must have a massive knob" - how many women are really going to latch on to an otherwise undesirable man just because he has a big thick cock? I consider myself pretty depraved and shallow, but even I wouldn't start a relationship with an uggo just because she had massive tits (I might shag her once though).

The old "he must be loaded" usually makes more sense, though I think even that is pushing it, especially these days, where a woman can independently use sex to generate money instead of having to shag a boring old millionaire.

Saying that, women do still seem attracted to people in power, or at least with jobs that give the mostly false impression of importance like pilots, head chefs, and lib dem MPs.

Skinny wierdo with a massive cock here: Not many. There are some size queens who'll go for it, but the thing is they have to know you have a massive cock, so of course, you have to warm them up far enough to be receptive to a shag before you can use your endowment as leverage in the first place. It's a catch 22.

My pet theory is that he has a belting sense of humour. My experience has always supported the idea that if you can make a girl laugh, you can probably get in her pants, so combine that with a bit of the "important and powerful" factor and it's no surprise he can pull.

I mean look at Bozza. He's loaded, but he's also some kind of mutant albino ape that was mistakenly sent to Eton.

The fact that he's up there at all proves at least a couple of people have said the universally dull line "you should do stand up!". The only difference is because he's got a politicians ego, he actually listened.

439583 Hello
>>438076

Traditional Catholic here. I must say, after all the years of browsing this website whilst saying mostly nothing, It's surprising to see interest in religion, It's usually something I keep to myself at work and around people outside of the family.

To answer your question, the benefits have been plentiful for me. I'll list a few from the top of my head, feel free to pry further if you're interested.

The practice of having Sundays off as a day of rest and reflection has helped me aim the trajectory of my life into the direction I wanted it to go. Planning things out, questioning my behaviors, paying careful attention to what has worked and what hasn't. Prayer functions in the same way for the most part. A somewhat meditative practice, in which I recite things that I wish to do and act out in my life. It's an attempt at self betterment, or 'following the narrow path towards God' if you'll forgive the religious rhetoric.

My parents sat down with me and read the bible with me as far back as I can remember. Consequently, my reading age at school was higher than a lot of the kids around me. Although I'm certainly no Shakespeare, and I make obvious mistakes all the time, I could read adult books in primary school when people were still learning their letters and spelling. As I grew older and went to a Catholic school, I found the same to be the case for other kids I was around. There was always a keen interest in literature. The Catholic bible, like Aristotelian writings, the works of Shakespeare and so on, make for reading material that can be revisited and learned from throughout life. Many people do just that, bible scholarship is a well established field, people spend their lives studying the meaning to the parables, prayers and rules, reading between different versions and translations. The book functions as both a puzzle and a guide throughout life.

The idea that there is a correct and incorrect way to function in the world with the ideal of Jesus Christ as an example figure to attempt to emulate has certainly shaped my character significantly. To be clear, this is not because I'm Christ like or some sort of moral paragon of virtue, rather, I am flawed like everybody else, and upon behaving immorally in the number of ways human beings tend to, looking up to the high set bar of Christ has given me a clearer image of what to do when decision making has been difficult. Morality and ethics are fields of their own, and I'm a layman at best when it comes to these subjects, but the bible and the laws within the books of Moses set some firm ground to stand on, even as they're debated and squabbled over among the religious.

I should probably stop procrastinating now and get back to work. It's getting late.

You say you're a traditional Catholic, which I interpret to mean someone who is actively involved with The Church, rather than just a 'personal' Christian. If that interpretation is correct, how do you reconcile all the benefits it has given you with the... issues that plague the Catholic church?

There's a lot that could be said here. In general I don't measure a large group of people, or an organisation of some kind, by the worst representation of the group. I'm aware that the first things that pop into the mind of many secularists when they hear the word Catholic, is financial corruption, and child rape, but It's not really something that I think about or have experienced. I've been a member of a handful of churches throughout my life, and it just hasn't been relevant to me or anyone I know for that matter.

When I hear and read about these crimes, it disgusts me, the same way I felt disgusted to find out about how China's Xi Jinping has overseen the authoritarian takeover of Hong Kong's laws, and the enslavement of over one million Uyghurs. There's nothing I can really do about these large structures tilting into corruption though, except talking honestly about them when people ask me, and being careful about where I distribute my finances. I haven't given money to the Catholic church for a long time, aside from donating to the soup kitchen, the food bank, and educational Catholic organisations like the Latin Mass Society. Starved from money, which the church is currently experiencing, the upper echelons will either collapse into irrelevance, or be forced to do something about the problems. Pope Francis, as much as I disagree with him in many ways, has moved in strides in this area, and for this very reason. There's a lot of information I'm omitting for the sake of brevity here, this has regularly been a topic of conversation among Catholics within my social circles for quite some time as I'm sure you can imagine. If you'd like to dip your toe into the water, your might be interested in 'Letter to a Suffering Church' by Bishop Robert Barron.

This brings me to the term traditional Catholic, avoiding theological jargon, the simplest way I can put it is like this. The traditional way of practicing the religion has been around for over a millennium and a half (more or less), largely unchanged. The Catholic church has tried to change the tradition considerably since around the 1960s, attempting to make it more progressive and approachable to the wider public. The original way of practicing the faith forces people to learn the Latin, learn the tradition, and actually practice the faith in what I would argue, is the correct way. The newer version turns the priest into the focal point, and well, I could list problems I see with it all day, but I'll just start ranting. I remember in the 80s there were a lot of guitars and pizza in these churches. Felt like more of a social club then a place of worship. Naturally attendance numbers for churches that practice the traditional way seem consistent, even rising slightly in popularity, but the newer way of practicing the mass, has seen dramatic loss of attendance over the decades. In another century I doubt the new version will even exist.

I was walking home in the pitch darkness. No street lamps were working and I was carrying a rolled up carpet. There wasn't a body or anything in there, I was just very attached to this carpet, I suppose. Anyway, something started stalking me through the dark and I tried to run, but this massive carpet was too heavy and cumbersome so I started panicking and as I looked behind me to see what was there I woke up. I'm really not sure why it was so startling that my heart beat's only just settled down, I'm just more into carpets than I knew consciously.

There was a fly in my bedroom last night that kept pestering me from about dawn until I got up at around 9:30. Very persistent bugger that just kept flying around my head and hands and feet. I couldn't be arsed to get up and kill it, so I was drifting in an out of sleep. At some point, I then had a dream that I was talking to the fly which had suddenly grown in size to about that of a cat, and I said to it, "Mate, you have to stop doing that. It's not cool. I need a few more hours of sleep!"

Is 'WITH NOTHING TO SAY BECAUSE I AM A CUNT' still wordfiltered? I mean, she's moved it from one bottle... to another bottle. It doesn't even pour that well so you always end up using more than you intended to. I doubt anyone in the entire history of humankind has ever thought "washing up liquid in a glass bottle, nice." It's bright yellow and she also pours the cooking oil into a Kilner bottle, which she doesn't store too far away from it, so I can almost certainly guarantee at some point in the future she'll end up frying food in washing up liquid. The lid is also a faff. Just... why? Why, lads?

Can you lads please reassure me that your lasses do stupid shit like this?

I've probably posted about Octav1us doing something sexy on Digi.

The hardest I have ever laughed at anything is the Garden of Nivvin game from Episode 4 of Digitiser The Show. Skip to 29:50 and buckle up. Every time you think it's reached a new nadir, it just keeps going horrifically wrong.

I had seen this when it came out but had forgotten/blanked out most of it.

So am I the only one who is getting a bit annoyed by this whole Greta Thunberg cult, or am I just too much of a cold hearted cynic that the world would be better off without?

I don't doubt the legitimate concern of her generation over climate change, after all it will fall to them to sort out the utter fucking mess that we have left the planet in, but all the awards that she is now being showered with are IMO just middle aged and old people's guilt over their own failure to save the planet's climate despite having had decades of prior warning, and who lost their way and succumbed to high carbon footprint consumerism somewhere between 1990s road protest villages and today's school runs in a 4x4. None of it feels sincere or genuine, it's more like, yeah, just take all these awards and shut the hell up already.

And parents whose children now protest every Friday or so are now engaging in pissing matches on twitter and Instagram to show off which one of their kids gets the most involved. As one commenter said, nothing good has ever come of a youth protest movement that was applauded by parents.

I've no idea if this data is more or less reliable than Oxfam's, but apparently a salary of 40k officially puts you in the 1%.

I don't really buy this. It is silly to tell someone on bennies here that they are in the global 5% and should be grateful. Makes me think it's a silly hamfisted message that Bezos would like his workers to believe and not look to make our own society fairer. Just for the sake of some fucking nets for some Congolese child somewhere.

Fits in with all the silliness of middle and working class people being told to be more green while the rich own private jets. The silliness of our government trying to call environmental activities, basically daft militant wogs, and this sort of nonsense >>439301.

All very silly.

What you have to keep in mind is that it's not a linear scale, and when you get to the top end of the scale, the curve has nearly doubled back on itself.

So you're in the top 5% if you're on £25k? Fair enough, kids in Mozambique don't even have clean water. But to be in the 1%? Doctors, lawyers, other general middle class jobs, who to be fair are wealthy, but they're still not exactly calling the shots and meaningfully in charge of anything.

Then you get to the very top with the 0.1%, which is people like you mention, your Bezoses and Gateses. It really doesn't sound like a big jump does it? That's going from a percent, to the top tenth of that percent- But the gulf is almost incomprehensibly vast. You go from a doctor who owns an Audi and goes on holiday twice a year, to men who command entire economies in their own right. Men who have so much money they could afford to buy entire African nations.

It's all a matter of perspective.

And you're right, it's a bit daft to call out people who are technically globally wealthy if they happen to live in a country/city with very high costs of living. They have no choice in the matter because that kind of poverty keeps you trapped wherever you happen to be, and while they might have access to clean water, universal healthcare and a roof over their head, that doesn't mean it isn't an intolerably bleak existence at times, and they are most certainly not complicit in environmental harm, because at that level you really don't have autonomy over your decisions. You have to buy whatever is cheap.

Problem clearly is they are first to blink in a game of chicken and they were rightfully treated like the prison bitch after the first time.

I'm such a dumb fucking idiot and it has ruined my confidence (anus)

So I (22 male) have always been fucked in the head. Starting a few years ago, I started experiencing with anal play while masturbating. Well, it went way overboard and I bought a huge sex toy and basically made it fit in my ass even though it hurt a bit. I'm fucked in the head, yes. Then about 4 months ago I had my anal virginity taken by an old man who surprise fisted me with 4 fingers inside and rotating the hand too. Both of these activities have stretched/worn out the skin around my anus (due to the anus being forced to expand). So now it's like I have excess skin around the asshole (not hemorrhoids).

Now my problem is that I got this loose "extra" skin and my ass falls out a little after I poop. If I squat down naked I can see some skin hanging down behind the asshole where my ass crack is supposed to be. It looks fucking awful and I feel like I'm an 70 year old man with anal prolapse. I already look fucked up and worn out, how am I gonna look when I'm 40? There's no way a medical procedure can fix this. I'm willing to post photos but I really just kind of wanna sleep forever. I don't know how I've managed to ruin myself so much...

I want to start over but that's not possible and it's just over for me. I'm so fucking tired of hurting about how big of a piece of shit I am. I have RUINED my own body. At this point trying to get better is only going to feel like I'm fighting a losing battle. I just wanna fucking cry in bed and stop going to the gym / work / talk to anyone. I really dont want anyone to say "you're depressed so seek help" or something. This is the cause of my sadness. Either it ends or I do.

(A good day to you Sir!)

Did you ask a doctor?

If you leave your arse alone for a few months it will be as tight and fresh as when it was new.

If fat people's entire skin can bounce back when they lose 60kg your arse certainly can.

Lads, I've just had a letter from the taxman saying I'm due a refund of just over £50. How should I blow this money? It's money I didn't know I had and I don't need it for anything in particular so I'm happy to squander it.
