I lost 7kg and seem to have stalled. Still eating 1500 cals according to the food app, must be the exercise apps overestimating how many I burn.
Unless the water retention caused by the creatine course I started is doing it.

Just make sure you don't go much lower than 1500 calories, as you will be entering crash diet territory, especially if it's accompanied by rigorous exercise.

Realistically it's more like 2-3,000 calories most days but that's adjusting for the exercise. Net 1,500 you might call it.

>a minimum wage just for people who work (directly or indirectly) for the federal government doesn't cover all that many people
You'd be surprised how many it would cover, but the main reason this exists is that it's entirely within the power of the executive and doesn't require legislation to be dragged through a Congress that is probably the least productive it's ever been.

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.

There's an episode of Mythbusters I was referred to recently where they checked whether reflective screens on your car windshield work to keep the inside cooler. None of my colleagues here bother with it, but from my time in a much much hotter climate I knew it to be a lifesaver. I don't remember whether it was Fahrenheit or proper units, but either way they measured a 10 degree lowering of temperature when using a screen. That's substantial, and that's just a flimsy sheet with a kind-of shiny coating. (Admittedly in a car, not a house)

As to whether it's going to provide air-conditioning level of climate control, half of the answer there is probably that people should learn to not expect that, at least in their homes. There was a piece on NPR over here on the wrong side of the pond recently when Europe was having heatwaves, and they were focusing on Germans in Berlin whose only option was to go to the local fountain to feel a bit cooler, and who seemed to universally despise the American concept of air-con in every building, even going as far as to say they they get poorly every time they visit the US from either temperature fluctuations between indoors and out, or just the recirculated air.

I'm curious what you and the other constructionlad think of these early concepts of 3D printed homes.

>>446488 early concepts of 3D printed homes.

They're early. Horribly energy intensive, the ones using extruded concrete are using too much, and concrete's not ideal. They need to add bricks / breeze blocks to get costs and performance better.
Also, the insertion of facilities all looks really ad-hoc and rushed and manual.
However, give it time. Thing is, it's up against pre-fab, where whole walls will be trucked in, with all services pre-fitted. Bolt them up, join the services, fill the gaps and test for compliance. If walls can be fabbed in factories, they'll be so much better than those thrown up by shit builders.
It's interesting times, but I bet progress will be slow. Expect the current horrors to continue for a while yet.

I caught some of the Emmys last night. Surely nominating The Mandalorian for an award for "outstanding casting" is just trolling?

Must have just drifted off then woke up soon after but I couldn't move. The strange part was I could hear a noise, similar to music being played through earphones rather loud and it was getting closer.

Had the pleasure of meeting Sir Clive Sinclair at a charity do once. He was surprisingly down to earth, and VERY funny.

The ZX80 and ZX81 were steps along the way to Sinclair's goal of having a reasonably functional colour computer for under £100. The original ZX Spectrum was the result of that. Markedly better than the previous two, but still notably limited compared to others on the market. You can definitely see why Sugar went in. He had been building his business on the idea that cheap doesn't have to be crap, and the strides that Sinclair Research was making made it clear they were at some point going to be able to deliver something that fit that pattern in the home computer space, and that was borne out in the 1986 sale of those assets to Amstrad.

For the best part of three decades, Sir Clive really was years ahead of his time. Adjusted for inflation, that £100 price point is now £360, which is in the range of budget laptops.

I agree - there's a very strong link between Amstrad/Sugar and Sinclair at that time. I believe the Sinclair purchase actually taught Sugar a great deal about the technology market - a year later, he was producing very cheap word processors and very early PC clones, such as the one picture here, which is also the first PC I ever owned.

I guess you always get what you pay for. You can buy a cheap car, which will mean you will own a car, but just don't expect much for your limited amount of money.

You can always design products to a price point, and that was always a large part of Sugar's success. And it can help democratise the market for a product because you are making that type of product available to the masses who can't afford the more high-end variants. But in the end, it's not always a good idea to buy cheap, as a consumer. Even with a small budget.

442884 Hypotheticals
I sometimes play out hypothetical scenarios in my head and what I'd do. I thought it would make for an interesting thread if I started listing them and getting some solutions, it might even be a learning experience as there's usually things I don't have an answer to.

So my first go:

If you broke one of your legs, how fucked would you be? How about both? That's not a threat. I was thinking about it the other night and how, frankly, I'd probably give breaking my legs a miss. My main problem is that I live up a few flights of stairs with no disabled access so I'd be trapped. I assume you can ask a delivery driver to come upstairs if you explain your position, so I wouldn't starve, but if both my legs are broken there's getting home from the hospital or going back as the legs heal.

I'd probably have to move out and live with my parents for at least a year. Do removal companies offer a service where they will pack your things up even if you don't organise? I don't much fancy my family finding my fleshlight.

It absolutely isn't. I work in a bank and get all the same training; I've also worked in an AML/KYC department of a very well known ecommerce site. In that role I was, briefly, personally liable for any financial crime on that site - they chuck the fucking book at you if you mess around.

KYC, "know your customer", is indeed an important part of AML regulation. In short, you have to not only establish and store personal info on your customer as to their identity and their motivation to spend or keep money with you, but if your customer is a business or a corporation, you also have to work out who owns that company, and who are the beneficiaries of its profits.

And then if you believe you have spotted suspicious activity in dealing with that client, you have to report the attempted money laundering or militant daft woggery financing behind your client's back to UKFIU, who will take it from there. Failure to secretly report suspicious activity can result in substantial fines either against your employer or you as an employee.

It means a lot of additional paperwork, and the larger your company, the more you have to have organisational structures in place that do nothing else all day. As a small business, you will get away with either doing it all yourself or naming one of your four or five employees who will be responsible on top of their usual daily work. But I guess it's for a common good, because any ease of money laundering promotes organised crime, it means lost tax revenue, and it's an unfair advantage towards competitors who stay within the law.

Not really. But they keep your name and personal info, and keep tabs on how much money you win or lose.

I'm not sure online casinoes are a good way to launder money though. At least not for the end consumer. The risk of losing large chunks of your illegal money is just too high.

"Real" casinoes, on the other hand, have always been a great way for organised crime to launder its proceeds. Especially in places like pre-revolution Cuba, with a corrupt military government looking the other way and the Mafia itself owning and operating dozens of casinoes up and down the island. There were lorry loads of cash money flown in from the U.S. to be laundered and turned into legitimate profits.

Young people can buy houses if they 'don't go out drinking', says 22-year-old Stockport landlord

A 22-year-old landlord and student from Stockport says there’s no reason young people can’t buy houses — so long as they don’t ‘go out drinking’ and ‘make the most out of living at home’.

Josh Parrott bought his first house when he was just 19, using money he saved up from two jobs he did between school lessons. He rented out the £115,000 house while paying rent to his parents, saving enough to buy another one for £140,000, aged 21. Josh did a £20,000 revamp and saved money by doing most of the labour himself after work, increasing the value by £60,000. He plans to move in soon and is already on the search for his third property. The businessman plans to own ten properties — renting out nine — by the time he is 30, buying one a year so he can finally put his feet up and work when he fancies.

With grand plans on a property empire, Josh has some advice for other people in his position. He said there’s no reason young people can't afford to buy homes — but admits his mates said he was "boring" when he said no to drinks or buying new clothes.

"There’s no reason people my age can’t buy houses,” said the trainee mortgage advisor from Stockport. “You just have to get past the mindset that there are certain things you do at certain ages. It wasn’t about being super bright or anything. You just need to make the most out of living at home: it’s nothing like as expensive as renting privately or through an agency. I just didn’t blow money on going out drinking and I spent almost nothing on cclothes. My mates all said I was being boring. And I don't have the expense of kids yet or anything.

“I was given a Ford Fiesta, which I kept, whereas a lot of my friends are buying expensive cars like Mercedes on finance schemes. I mean they're nice cars but I was able to put-away up to £1,200 a month by the time I went full-time. I could have spent that by going out on the town. Working at an estate agent is a great job for young people and it doesn't require any qualifications."

The whole thing is bollocks. Apparently his £14,000 salary when he went full-time means you can buy a £115,000 house with an £11,000 deposit.

If he started working part-time for the estate agents in 2015, had a cleaning job with his parents for a few years, went full-time in 2018 and was putting away £1,200 per month then only being able to save £11,000 for a deposit by the time he bought a house the following year is actually pretty poor going.

Years and years ago there was hysteria about deep vein thrombosis and it was always in the news but you never hear about it at all these days.

I fully agree with this sentiment. 90% of the public are cunts when they've had a drink, which is an increase on 85% when they haven't.

Honestly nothing better than turning the telly and music off and sitting down with a pint without any shoes on after putting up with knobheads for 12 hours solid.

Never worked in a club before, but I can imagine that your dealings with the public are primarily serving booze and then people having blazing rows over the change from a fiver because they can't understand pound a pint doesn't extend to expensive brandies, but with none of the in-between of the mind numbing, inane shite people insist on sharing every single day that you get in a pub, just pulling pints and telling thickos they don't understand promotions.

My other half has squeezed all of the washing up liquid into a Kilner bottle.

Lads, I don't get it. I really don't get it. I mean, I gave up trying to understand women a long time ago but every now and then something happens that leaves me utterly flummoxed beyond all comprehension. 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?

My girlfriend bought a revolving spice rack but she insists on having it right in the corner of the kitchen, meaning you can't actually turn it unless you pick up the rack and move it elsewhere. We've also got more spice jars than will fit in the rack so there's at least a dozen of them lined up on the wall next to it.

That's strange, I don't remember writing this post.

And the bloody revolving spice rack came with its own bottles, which have really awkward lids which never feel quite flush with the groove.

Is there any real point to air freshener or is it closer to snake oil with the whole "nose blind" scaremongering advertising campaigns? I think I've only really been to one house that had a bad smell to it and that's because my friend is a bit of a slob.

Plug-in and continuous 'fresheners' are far fouler than any house I've ever been in. Nasty fucking things.

It's all bollocks. I find a strong "pleasant" smell just as offensive as a strong unpleasant one. Ideally you want a room to just be smell neutral.

I throw the windows open for a couple of hours every week to let air circulate through, and occasionally go around with a squirt of febreeze after I've tidied up. If I don't do anything the whole flat starts to smell of cooking because we don't have an extractor in the kitchen, but you shouldn't need to do much more than that.

If you smoke in the house and have carpets you're fighting a losing battle, so just don't bother. Only smoke in rooms that have laminate or finished wood flooring, there's less for the smell to stick to then.

Speaking purely hypothetically, if you were feeling suicidal but didn't want to go through with killing yourself could you pay for a hitman to do it at a completely unexpected time?

Would they agree to it, though? I can't imagine any hitman worth his salt would agree to be paid in that way. Some estates take years to be distributed.

>a completely unexpected time

Wouldn't you be expecting it given you just jumped through all the hoops to book it? Your last days would be abject terror as you jump at every noise, you eventually calm down only to have your death by piano wire flash into your mind followed by the sound the hitman cursing under his breath.

Plus there's plenty of ways you can get a hitman for free. Piss off the Italian mafia for instance.

Like all things, it's only a crime if you get caught. With hitmen, there is an expectation that they won't get caught. Doctors, meanwhile, are more likely in my opinion to not disappear into the shadows once you die.

I think shopping at Lidl and Aldi is the ultimate intelligence test.

Anyone who uses the packing station behind the checkouts has instantly lost.

I buy a very small amount from Aldi. I never get a trolley or even a basket, so I only buy what I can hold in my hands. Once I've paid for it, I just pick it all up again and walk out. I do still feel a bit like I'm being rushed, but quite frankly, checkmate, atheists.

Mum says speed of Aldi cashier left her 'crying and shaking' as food piled high

A Teesside mum says she has been left traumatised by the "aggressive approach" of an Aldi cashier and the "ferocious" speed of the supermarket's conveyor belts.

Nicola Fuller was minding her own business, completing her weekly shop with her three young children, when she became embroiled in tense confrontation with a "disgracefully rude" staff member. She claims the worker refused to slow his scanning even as food fell from the packing area onto the floor "like a slot machine", leaving customers in the Guisborough store "gawping".

The 35-year-old mum maintains that she was loading her shopping "as quickly as possible", but that the worker was taking no prisoners, and "continuously scanning" and "piling the food high". Soon "huge towers" of groceries loomed perilously over the edge of the packing area, as she "frantically reached" to place each item in her bags. "He could see my struggle and when a tin finally fell, I began crying and shaking" she explained.

My estimation of journalists has increased lately, with a few stories I've seen of reporters either bravely investigating ugly truths at great personal risk or working really hard to uncover scoops nobody else knows about, but it's all been undone by the fact someone was paid to write that story. Journalists are losers, all of them.
