Is it the overt offensiveness that you enjoyed? I've been rewatching comedies of that era and it's the first one I've just given up on. Airplane! and Naked Gun, Hot Shots, all the spoofy or Zucker et al ones, they're still holding up great to me. It just felt like it hadn't aged well. Were there any moments early on that stood out to you?

I think with the Police Academy films a large part of it is nostalgia. They're extremely naff so I can't imagine anyone would enjoy watching them unless they saw them as a child; they used to be on ITV all the time in the 90s. Everyone likes funny sound effects guy.

When it comes to dumb 80s comedies See No Evil, Hear No Evil is very unappreciated, in my opinion.

Police Academy was funny the first two or three movies, but after that, it just became painful to watch. They were milking a franchise for every last drop whose potential was quite limited from the word go and which should have been discontinued after part 3 or thereabouts.

There were plenty of slapstick comedies in the early to mid-80s that were in a similar vein, like Spies Like Us or Stripes. They were all funny in their own way, but thankfully they attempted no sequels. Even Beverly Hills Cop II was pretty tepid, although Eddie Murphy was probably the funniest comedian of his time.

I am right with you. If it's in there, my default option is a few cloves, whatever the amount the recipe says, whether its lockdown, covid or growing older I don't care now. Maybe psychologically the pandemic has turned me scared of vampire bats or something. I love garlic and I'm proud. I think I'm basically up to half a bulb whenever I'm cooking a meal for us.

I installed tinder and got some matches with my bedroom selfie during my initial swiping spree, but now it seems like way more trouble than it's worth. I don't want to keep swiping incessantly every day just to continue getting matches. Plus, the vast majority of the attractive women are only attractive in the physical sense, and there is a palpable feeling of there being "nothing there", or an unsettling black chasm behind their eyes.

Is there a better way to meet women without having an IRL social life?

No, you're absolutely right. It's the main reason I'm barely putting any effort into tinder at all the moment; basically if I hadn't gotten blind drunk over the "Black Friday" weekend and bought a year of Tinder Gold at a ridiculous discount I would have deleted my account by now.

I happen to be in a relatively comfortable position where I can basically have all the sex I want with someone who I know is taking the same Covid precautions that I am. If I wasn't, and I was in a total sexual drought since the beginning of last year I would probably be risking things a lot more and actually meeting up with the kind of mental slag lass who wants to hook up with a total stranger in the middle of a global pandemic.

Where does the stereotype originate from that British\English woman are so ugly? It seems like usually stereotypes have some underlying reasoning or origin such as poor cooking or how mountain-people are sheep shaggers but this one makes no sense.

Yes and no. I've also been to Germany, and their women didn't strike me as broadly attractive as Czech girls.

Also though, German women are a nightmare to talk to when you try to chat with them in a pub. They just do not do small talk. On the plus side, if they have a boyfriend, they'll come right out with it. It can even be the very first thing they tell you.

I had a dream that I was at a birthday party with loads of people, probably a hundred, and nobody was wearing a mask, and I thought, even if I don't get sick, they're going to trace me and tell me to go into quarantine. So I told people I was going home, and if anybody asked them, I was never there.

> which used to mean

And that's the keyword. Used to. Like I said, capitalism at its beginning in the 19th century should not serve as a blueprint for how a modern market economy should function. Capitalism as well as most countries' economic policy has evolved from that, it has largely left its scandalous days behind it, and it shows the world over that you can have capitalism and at the same time the little people can prosper. While socialists still dream of the world revolution that never happened a hundred years ago, all the while rejecting the Soviet Union as a key example of how socialism turns out in practice.

Being driven down a rocky, bumpy path with lots of small jumps between two spatially-incompatible fields by a super cocky land rover driver, culminating in a massive jump off a dirt ramp. I was instantly teleported out of the land rover as it tilted in the air, landed on its roof, and presumably crushed the driver. I woke up before I could find out.

Are most people in a relationship happy?

I seem to have a number of friends who like to portray themselves as being in a perfect relationship when the reality tends to be markedly different. Do people stay in an unhappy relationship because they find it preferable to being alone or they find the breakup itself too much hassle; you have to unwind yourself financially from someone, you may be accustomed to the lifestyle supported by two incomes, there may be kids involved, you may feel there's social stigma involved in a failed relationship or you simply lack the balls to do initiate it. Do a lot of people just settle?

I'd be interested to know your thoughts.

I do live on my own as it happens but even when I were a kid and lived with my parents I was expected to cook for myself and do my own washing, and usually the rest of the family's laundry and washing up and tea making. I think living on your own can help, but teaching those sort of skills is possible whilst living at home.


Funny story, the day before I moved out for uni, my dad had this 20 minute top of his lungs screaming session at me about how I was an ungrateful little shit and I was deliberately sabotaging his coffee by making it taste like shit. When I pointed out that a) I don't drink coffee so I have no idea what it's supposed to taste like, b) in the previous six years he'd not once pointed out that it didn't taste good so how the fuck was I supposed to know, and c) if he wanted coffee how he liked it he shouldn't scream at me to make it every 30 minutes whilst I'm trying to do school work and make it himself, he reiterated that I was doing it deliberately and should have been more grateful (for what, I'm not sure). I don't have a bad relationship with my parents, and that incident has never been mentioned again, but it was just such a fucking weird thing to happen.

How do you bugger up coffee though? Contrary to what hipsters will have you believe, it's not sorcery to be able to make a pleasant tasting cup of coffee.


Agree with your general point though, that your parents can already teach you life skills while you are still living with them. I remember my mum teaching me how to use the washing machine and dryer when I was about 15, when she got tired of me always wanting to wear things that she hadn't had the time to put in the wash. Also, my mum is still of the generation where a wife was expected to have good cooking skills, and I learned a lot from her, like how to fry a steak so that it's still juicy inside, or how to cook vegetables just right.

My dad wasn't around long enough to teach me the "lad" stuff like fixing electrical appliances or repainting a garden fence, but I eventually picked those skills up myself in adulthood.

[b]Lockdown: Clap for Carers to return as Clap for Heroes[\b]

Clap for Carers is to return under a new name of Clap for Heroes, the initiative's founder has said. The weekly applause for front-line NHS staff and other key workers ran for 10 weeks during the UK's first coronavirus lockdown last spring. Founder Annemarie Plas tweeted that it would return at 20:00 GMT on Thursday.

NOT AGAIN, LADS. I THOUGHT WE WERE FREE FROM THE CLAP BUT IT KEEPS COMING BACK.

I've indicated the Clap for Carers period on the graph of UK covid cases in red. As you can see, rate of increase in cases levels off as clap participation rose from March through April. This levelled of April 7 following Clap for Boris and then greatly declined.

Nobody has been clapping during the spear and as you can see, the number of cases are astounding. Nobody has clapped for Boris since April of last year to the detriment of the Public Health of the UK.
We basically have a Reverse Tinkerbell effect here and you all need to clap for Boris on your doorstep at least once a day.

Now, I'm no scientist, but if I were I would probably suggest trying to clap daily instead of just on Thursdays in order to see if it's possible to ramp up the ameliorative effects of clapping on covid spread.

Determining a mechanism is also important. One may speculate that the force of hands slapping together is effectively destroying the virus better than soap and water which is admittedly a lot softer than a good hard British clap.
It remains to be seen whether the latest abominable mutant super skunk UK strain of virus is susceptible to clapping but we can only hope and pray and clap

Going through my Arduino parts bin again here at the moment, looking for something to throw together to kill the boredom of being stuck at home.

I've got several ATtiny microcontrollers and an ESP32 dev board, as well as temperature sensors, a gyroscope/accelerometer, PIR sensors, two miniature TFT colour displays, a whole bag of assorted resistors and capacitors, a few LEDs, and miscellaneous parts like transistors and MOSFETs, and a 1.5'' paper cone speaker with a 3W amplifier.

I could make a burglar alarm with the PIR sensor and the speaker and the amp, the only question would be the whole point of it, when there are days at the moment where I don't leave my flat at all.

I'm not saying he's an angel but you're still putting a lot of effort into this.

I think it's clear we're all angry, it's just one of us is angry because he's outed himself as a mental hat woman aficionado.

I want to start an album, and get it about half done. I don't care about the musical quality or if anyone else likes it -- as long as what I make amuses me, I'll be satisfied.

I was considering making losing weight my resolution, but fuck it, my mental health's still too iffy (and food is a real crutch). Next year.

Does anyone know what the average dry seed yield of a mustard plant is? I'm tempted to grow one to make my own mustard but I'm not sure how many I'd need for it to be worthwhile.

I want to win money in a Kaggle competition. The analytics ones are probably the best shout, but the only one available right now is just a terrible ML challenge in disguise.

I guess I'll tell you about a subject I know about... mountaineering.

Specifically moutaineering coats... North Face summit series. A lot of north face stuff has become just overpriced branded 'streetwear' clothing. But the summit series is one of about 5 brands that makes outdoor clothing you would want to wear whilst facing off death on top of an Alp, and of they are the best value and probably the only one you might find on a normal high street. Arc'teryx is actually the best mountaineering clothing brand but they cost twice as much as anyone of the other real brands and everyone else was already charging way more than you would think these things should cost. The others are Rab, mammut, and the uncreatively named mountain equipment and mountain hardware.

Anyone else selling you clothes that look similar are usually of dubious quality or practicality.

I think brand-name tea is worth the additional cost. I switched to Lidl's generic tea for a while when I was unemployed and proper skint, but if you buy commercial-brand tea in bags or leaf, then the little bit of extra cost is absolutely worth it.

I was a real tea snob though for a while. There was a small Indian tea shop in my old neighbourhood where you could buy loose leaf and where they had about 25 different black and green tea flavours in boxes behind the counter. Always smelled delicious when you walked in. If you didn't mind paying up to £7 for 125g of their finest Earl Grey, it was your kind of place.

Echoing this sentiment for motorcycle clothing. Fashion trends will regularly cycle in and out of moto-looking aesthetics, but it should go without saying that their protective value is virtually zero. It sounds obvious, but sometimes even clothing manufacturers will deliberately blur the line between fashion and riding leathers (Barbour, Belstaff, and Schott spring to mind).

There is a growing market for motorcycle gear that looks more like every day clothing and a lot of little leaps forward have been made in achieving decently protective gear that it doesn't feel odd to wear off-bike. Knox is a good place to start. The YouTube channel "FortNine" also has some very good videos on safety ratings and clothing recommendations that meet a decent standard.

If I can add to your list Buffalo and Montane - their pile and Pertex smocks and salopettes are phenomenally good in extreme weather. Not cheap, not attractive, but virtually indestructible.
