I create[d] a lot of the threads on here. The main reasons I've slowed down over the years are because these days I mainly post on a phone and rarely use a computer in my free time and also because I'm reading the Mail a lot less, so I have far fewer ideas of things to shitpost about.

Enforce the will of A11ah and allow us to beat our wives for disobedience

Men are in charge of women by [right of] what A11ah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband's] absence what A11ah would have them guard. But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance - [first] advise them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and [finally], strike them. But if they obey you [once more], seek no means against them. Indeed, A11ah is ever Exalted and Grand.

(A good day to you Sir!)

Bit lower working class though. I grew up in the 80s as well and we had hot showers every morning, and could take hot baths whenever we felt like it.

The only time our parents would get a little upset was when we took overly long showers and were told to stop wasting water. The same applied when we wanted to take a full bath instead of a shower every day or every other day.

This post has actually reminded me of some of the less than luxurious living conditions we had when my insane dad chucked us all out when I was a wee lad. I remember living in a particularly shitty bedsit for a few months where the avocado green shower didn't work properly, must've been in the early 90s. As I was only small it was more than enough for me to wash my bits over a washing up bowl full of hot water out the kettle and then wash my face and brush my teeth etc. in the sink. I think I remember worrying about going to school like that thinking that people would be able to smell that we didn't have a proper bathroom anymore but no one really noticing. It also didn't have a washing machine and my mum, God bless her, washed all our clothes in the kitchen sink and then put them through some kind of manual clothes spinny machine that looked like a pedal bin to get the water out before hanging them all from the doorways to dry. Mums, eh? They really do hold the world together when you're young don't they. Go ring your mum and tell her you love her.

Why would I rent I chainsaw? I've got plenty...
While I'm pretty gung ho about taking trees down, these are outside my comfort zone. They're big, and will drop onto a road that has real traffic, or wipe out buildings and fences, depending on which way they go.
I'd have to climb them and do them in sections, and I'm not a creature of the air.
For scale, the fence is 6 foot, the green tarp thing is the remains of my woodshed, and the fallen branch managed to hit the building on the left on its way down.

Then it's even more interesting.
This piece of land is not in the EU. Probably means that whoever was barmy enough to buy an RX8 here is going to be fucked up royally sooner or later.
But then again, perhaps I am mistaken and because of some bloody miracle there is a place around proficient enough to deal with rotary engines. Anyway I doubt that.

It's certainly possible. If you're in some post-soviet part of the world, it'd not be as surprising, since Lada did make rotary cars for a while - whether or not anyone is still interested in maintaining them, who knows, but a place tooled out to fix those could service an RX8, even if it's the only one they've ever seen, it's still basically the same thing.

If you're anywhere else, fuck knows.

All this talk of Mazda, and I completely forgot that they did showcase an RX9 concept a couple of years ago, and told us it was going to be in full production. I'll probably end up buying one, despite the risks.

Yes.
I've never heard about a rotary engine Lada IRL though. Read about one, right. But that's the only amount of exposure I've had to it.
I don't recall how many of them were made and how good or bad the engine was. My father has a load of old Soviet car magazines in his garage, maybe I'll flick through them for information.

I've seen only a few pics and quite unsure if those were even real. Strongly resembled Mazda6 from the front.

Mango season is picking up. The Iranian greengrocer not far from here had good sized Brazilian mangoes today for £1.50 a piece. Fully ripe and fucking delicious.

I honestly don't know how they survive. They sell 40-pound watermelons for 8 quid a piece during the summer months, and now they've got some of the best mangoes I've seen in a long time for a quid and a half. Even my local M&S here rarely has mangoes this good.

Or maybe it is because they are fully ripe. Maybe the big chains don't buy up produce like this because of the limited shelf life. I'm indeed not sure the one I just had would have lasted much longer, because it really was at peak ripeness. Maybe my Iranian greengrocer gets them at a discount that way, from wherever it is that they get their groceries.

Lads, I've been having a think.

The modern world means that you can stream whatever form of entertainment you want directly into your living room; sports, films, TV, you name it. I think we need to stop looking at streaming in a purely digital sense and start looking at it in a physical sense.

Imagine having a tap which means you can stream whatever you want that can flow down the pipes. You want some custard? There's a tap for that. You want some mashed potato? There's a tap for that. You want some gravy? There's a tap for that. We need to move from apps to taps and pipes. It would be revolutionary. Imagine the carbon footprint saved from lorries no longer having to deliver these loads to the supermarket and then for individual shoppers to go one-by-one to buy it and take it home. The likes of warm custard cooked en masse in one central bulk must surely be more efficient than the piecemeal approach of innumerable households cooking meals themselves on hobs and in ovens.

Obviously Big Shop will kick up a fuss as we cut out the middleman and there will be the initial outlay of creating a national network of pipes, but the long-term benefits would far outweigh it. It would be the next true industrial revolution.

>and they have to explain why they're sticking a second needle in your spinal column.


I got various injections into my spinal column following a severe lumbar disc hernia.

One of the most fucking unpleasant experiences of my life. Not because it would have been painful, which it wasn't in all honesty. The injections felt like a mosquito bite on my skin at the most. But just the fact that somebody was poking around my spinal cord with a needle, plus having been made aware of the possible albeit quite rare consequences of a failed procedure.

So it was really more a psychological thing. Well and one time, the orthopaedic surgeon who was administering the injections actually did slip a little bit and got a little close to the nerve, which made my leg twitch in a very peculiar way and then it felt weird for about three or four hours after the procedure. He apologised but said the effect would only be temporary. Still a fucking unpleasant thing to go through. I think I had four injections in total over the course of about six weeks.

ITT: Weird dreams you've had lately.

I actually dreamed last night that I was in Australia, visiting the two blokes from the Foster's adverts in their beach hut. Sure enough, they gave me a Foster's, and I said "cheers, guys"... and then one of them said to me "oh no mayt, we don't say cheers heere. We say 'You little ripper!'"

Quite bizarre... has this dream got any deeper meaning, or have I just been watching too much telly lately?

Sometimes things that your body experiences during sleep can affect your dreams. Maybe you were lying on a sharp object like a needle or drawing pin or something.

A while ago, I had a dream that I was at a race track and heard the sound of roaring engines all around me. But then when I woke up, I noticed that there was a tree surgeon in the 60-foot birch tree right across the street from my bedroom window, taking off a few of the top branches with a chainsaw. The sound of the chainsaw must have caused me to dream that I was at that race track.

I went out for a walk with a couple of people I supposedly work with and one of them gave me a cig (I don't smoke IRL). When we got back I threw the cig in the bin without fully stubbing it out properly and it caught fire. I kept soaking towels in the sink and throwing them on the fire but it wouldn't go out. I had to interview a couple of people for jobs in the afternoon and I had to tell each of them "don't mind the bins" and play it off like having a bin on fire in your place of work was one of the most natural things in the world.

It was a plastic bin and in the kitchen. Why I'd take job candidates through the kitchen is anyone's guess.

I can sort of understand why I had that dream; I'm a bit apprehensive about someone I have to interview next week because he's roughly double my age and he's got far more industry experience than I have. "Let's talk about what you were doing before I was even born."

It only takes a couple of hours for a touch-typist to adjust to a new keyboard. I use a swanky mechanical keyboard on my desktop, but I'm only a few WPM slower on a moderately crappy laptop keyboard.

Personally, I think it's madness that schools spend so much time teaching handwriting, but touch-typing isn't on the national curriculum. I can't remember the last time I hand-wrote anything longer than a post-it note, but I spend the greater part of my working day typing. It staggers me that there are professional people who hunt-and-peck with two fingers - it seems like an absurd handicap in a modern office.

I don't really understand how anyone my age can't touch type. I've been sat at computers since I was about 10. Never had a single typing lesson, I've just done two decades of practice.

I'm not perfect, I don't use all ten digits, but I can touch type, and faster than my mother who was a trained typist.

I wrote a 10,000 word graded paper in roughly 12 hours a couple of years go using between 4 and 6 digits, but I don't have to look which speeds up my typing greatly. Not exactly touch typing per se, but defo good enough.

My blind Gran is a trained touched typist, used to do data entry at a bank and uses a Braille keyboard and she is lightning. She can even do it on a laptop keyboard despite never having worked with one.

I was talking about this to the missus the other day. I just can't comprehend how they possibly intend to enforce it. I mean fair enough they could just block access to tons of stuff like the Chinese Great Firewall, but it's not like they have the authority to affect things on websites outside the EU. If a piece of copyrighted material is posted on a Brazilian server, the EU cyber police can't just hack them and delete it. Furthermore are they really going to spend money on basically building a supercomputer that scans the entire internet just to take down a few bloody memes?

I can't really get my head around it to be honest, but I feel confident they won't touch us. Anybody else remember when they banned piracy again, for real this time, we properly mean it, for definite? Didn't stop me torrenting 455gb worth of Playstation 1 games this weekend did it. I doubt this will affect me much eaither.

I think the problem is still that there are many computer illiterates in power and in office in Brussels. Whatever their area of expertise as politicians may be, computers and the Internet most of the time certainly aren't it. And that makes them susceptible to the wrong kind of advisors, who either haven't got a clue themselves or who only parrot what lobbyists of the media industry have told them. It works that way in nearly every area of government.

There's an old saying - he who knows nothing, must believe anything. In other words, if you don't know much about the Internet, then you have no basis on which to judge if what lobbyists try to drill into you is overbroad and will hold the whole Internet hostage, or if it's really something that is worth pursuing.

In the end, I don't think all that much is going to change. Because you'd piss a lot of people off if you enforce this kind of thing to the full extent of the law.

As Abraham Lincoln said - the best way to get a law repealed is to enforce it strictly.

Coordinated mass protests are predicted and the met has drafted in reinforcements to "balance" free speech and security.

There's the admirable "Show your rump to trump", the coordinated mooning will if nothing offend POTUS, who is a self-confessed "germa-phobe".

Then there's the venerable "giant Trump Baby balloon". Though are Sadiq has forbidden its flying. Watch this space.

>is just like what the Metro's editor thinks of protest balloons

What if I told you it goes waaay beyond the protest balloons- That newspapers like the metro and the mail, actually support different political parties, agendas, and ideologies. And that they deliberately filter all of the events of the world and focus on specific ones from a particular perspective to try get you to share their view of them.

I am purchasing some farm land in the East of England.

I'm placing a 40ft container on concrete footings and erecting a timber lean-to for stabling, bringing in a couple of caravans, a few friends and having a jolly good time.

I do not plan on notifying my local authority.

.....

Does my local authority have the power to stop me, fine me or do anything untoward to prevent me from living a good life?

Yes. They can force you to demolish any unauthorised development. "Development" includes any construction, extension or the change of use of any building. Farms of more than 5 hectares have certain permitted development rights, but if you build a commune for your mates you should expect the council to break up your party.

Yep, councils love this sort of thing.
You might as well write 'pedo hut' in ten foot high letters on the sides of the shipping container, just to complete the laugh.
That said, I don't think they confiscate the land or the pedo hut, so once you've been through court, you can sell the land, buy somewhere else, and repeat. It's hard to imagine a more enjoyable lifestyle.

A level results day, lads.

You know what that means? Lots of top teenage totty leaping in the air (except for in the grauniad which will go out of its way to almost exclusively use pictures of girls in pair of whale skin breechess). PHWOAR!

There's a massive difference between "horsey slags" and the type of off-cut in a dress that goes to Womens Day at Royal Ascot.

Share useless bits of scientific fact that you know but which might be completely useless to you.

The Earth's movement around the sun is thought to be subject to Milankovitch cycles, which are cycles over tens to hundreds of thousands of years and affect such things as the ellipticity and the eccentricity of its orbit and axial tilt. There is evidence that changes in these parameters could have been a cause of long-term global climate fluctuations in the past and will continue to do so over long periods of time. However, they cannot explain the relatively sudden rise in global temperatures during the last 300 years.

Manchester uni have got one:



Lightning test facilities are industrially necessary, because lots of products and installations need to be tested for compliance with BS EN 62305.

You lot are missing the point of my post. I said there is research being conducted into how to harness the energy of lightning bolts for use as electricity.

No there isn't.
A lot of mad inventors have dabbled with the idea over the years but there is no serious research simply because some basic maths tells you the idea is ludicrous for a lot of different reasons.

and you backed it up with fuck-all when asked for a hint. So we sidetracked onto more interesting things.
People whine about the intermittent nature of solar and wind energy. It's hard to see lightning's duty cycle being something that won't get in the way rather, unless you have a load that can wait for ages but needs a short sharp electrical pulse. Dump it into a flashtube for a mad laser, maybe?
