I had a go at this. My response rate approaches zero. I don't know if that's down to autism or to me being hideous. The stream of pseudo-rejection doesn't even sting, I suppose this is just how I expect things to be.

I still wouldn't recommend it to anyone. I've been a bit more deflated than usual since starting.

That is normal it isn't you. I met my partner through OK Cupid and even I wouldn't recommend the experience. You need to not wear your heart on your sleeve and develop a thick skin to rejection/being ignored, because it will happen during online dating a lot.

Don't take the lack of responses personally. Assuming you're a guy looking for a girl, it's almost impossible to stand out. I've seen girls OKCupids, and they get literally dozens of messages a day. It's hard to stand out when you're one of 50 people messaging her that day.

OKCupid worked out quite well for me. A girl messaged me first (which is surprising as I'm not much of a looker), and I've been with her three years in a couple of months. So it can work out.

I started playing the Discworld MUD again, I just remembered it in a flash of childhood nostalgia. To my surprise, my character still exists.

It's still sort of going. There's about 100 people on at any one time, which is a fair amount to still be playing something like this. I wonder how many more muds still exist.

Online dating is absolutely toxic. It creates the illusion of infinite choice for women. It desensitises men to rejection and turns them into cynical dickpic spammers. It frames your romantic and sexual life as a tedious numbers game, about as exciting as being a social media strategist for a company with one employee.

My only advice is to get off it as soon as possible and work on being more social in real life. Get a job you're genuinely interested in, volunteer, find a hobby. The actual struggle to finding satisfying relationships is building a satisfying life. You'll meet likeminded people in the process.


It makes me picture the manchild that drew it having a good day, like they've just captured an ultrashiny Charizard in Pokemon Go or something.

It's one of those that you need to constantly ask people how to do stuff at the start, or wiki everything. You have to spend days working out how the levelling systems work, and once you do you can fly through it, but it's definitely rough at the start. As I learned the ropes as a bored youth it was great, but I can't imagine anyone wanting to put that sort of time in now.

It was amazing how many people are still playing that I remember from nearly a decade ago.

People like it so much because it's fun and isn't buggy, with practically no cheaters. China is also region locked (I think this sells it for most).

All issues PUBG has, which is why it is bleeding players so quickly. No one wants to play against Chinks using hacks. I get that over there, culturally, they don't see an issue with cheating and if everyone is doing it no one is. Introducing those players into the international servers was a recipe for disaster that hasn't been resolved by ping based match making. There are still Chinese lads with 400 ping and invincibility shooting through cover.

I'm trying to convince my friend to apply for the Civil Service Fast Track apprenticeship scheme but she seems to think it's beneath her.

Technically she is eligible to apply for the Fast Stream (graduate scheme) as she has a degree. However, she applied for that five years ago, made it to Whitehall but was unsuccessful and all she's done in the time since is about one year of low level admin work in between squeezing out kids.

I've tried hinting that someone with a sociology degree who has spent most of the time since graduating not working isn't going to be in high demand in the job market, but she's seen the word "apprenticeship" and thinks she's overqualified and the only benefit at the end of the scheme is being eligible for the Fast Stream whereas it'd mean she'd be able to get her foot in the door and the pay isn't too bad.

I don't know how else to reason to her. Are most graduates a bit entitled, even if their degree is a bit Mickey Mouse and they haven't been able to secure a decent job?

Doesn't really sound like your problem mate. It seems like she's happy doing what she's doing, unless she's expressed otherwise and you haven't mentioned it here.

Is it as shite paying as most apprenticeships?

I personally couldn't think of anything more abhorrent than being a civil servant, so maybe that's it. It's not exactly glamorous, and if she's not that bothered career wise then she has little reason to go through that.

The website hasn't been updated since last year, but that says the starting salary is between £19,500 and £27,000.

She wants to be a social researcher, but she doesn't really seem that switched on about making that into a career; my logic is that the apprenticeship scheme would get her foot in the door with the civil service and then she'd have to opportunity to apply for any internal vacancies

There's an interesting movie on Channel4 in 25 minutes. "The Net" with Sandra Bullock, from 1995.

On the face of it, it's a naive mish mash of dawn of the Internet age semi-tall tales about what computers couldn't quite yet actually do on the one hand, and the dumbing down of computer technology to appeal to the average viewer who was expecting a low-brow popcorn cinema spy thriller on the other hand. But it's not without its merits because it asks certain questions about data privacy and security a few years before their time.

A document of its age, when the possibilities of the Internet seemed as endless in theory as they were limited in practice.

It's the perceived frequency of each.

A picnic type thing maybe happens a couple of times a year, but you'd assume the jakies on the bench are there every day. That may not be true, but it's how it looks.

Though if I saw someone every day down the beach on their blanket I'd still assume they were homeless.

Idiot who just jumped the gun and posted here.

If you're looking for things to do with it period, not how to use it up because it's best before date is coming up, I have the following suggestions:

- Banging cheese sauce; Cauliflower cheese, butterflied chicken breasts filled with gorgonzola slices and wrapped in parma ham before going in the oven

- mix 10-15% gorgonzola (so 100mg mince to 15g cheese for a standard 1/4 lbr) into your mince for a fantastic cheeky wee burger if that's your thing. Avoid over saucing the rest., maybe a wee bit of mayonnaise if you swing that way on top of the bottom-bun protective lettuce. Thinly sliced avocado as your top dressing. Perfecto my man.

- If you can't be fucked doing anything else either get a decent box of crackers and eat the fucking stuff or use it as lube up the missus' box. Then make a sandwich out of that. You dirty fuck.

>why a lump of chorizo goes off in three days when it's in your fridge at home instead of hung up in the shed it had been in for weeks prior.

Simply put, moisture.

All cured or aged products are either kept dry or at a very deliberate humidity. Fridges are, by and large, moist and dirty, so food will sprout (unintended) mould, the fat will turn rancid, and so on, very quickly. If you seal everything in cling film it should be absolutely fine for a good long while.

Also, consider that a cured meat or a cheese is packaged right at the apex of it's freshness - that is, it certainly has been sat in a cave for about as long as it can. It's sealed in nitrogen etc and shipped off to us, where it might spend a few more weeks or months in storage. It will not age nearly as well as it would have hanging from grandpa-pa's balcony in the alps.

10/10 masterful troll work. I thought you were agreeing me until you got to "Big Fridge"

> If you seal everything in cling film it should be absolutely fine for a good long while.

Once something's open or a joint of meat is sliced it goes in it own tupperware box. Things like aged cheeses, aged meat, parma ham etc all do really well like that.

Another one that irks me is yogurt - if the yogurt hasn't been opened (and thus contaminated) then it's not really going to go off any more than it already has. When I tell people that yogurt and cheese are milk that's "gone off" (to not get into technical details) they look me like Ali G when he found that eggs came "out of a chicken's bum".

I think that's a bad move. It likely won't catch on, but if it did, we'd lose any and all resistance to the common food poisoning bacteria. In a couple of generations we would go from 'makes you quite ill for a day' to 'almost certain death' for handling food.

Foodborne disease is still a major killer in the developing world where food hygiene standards aren't as strict. Here in the UK, salmonella and e-coli still kill a significant number of people. A relatively minor bout of food poisoning can turn very nasty if you're immunocompromised. The very old and very young are particularly vulnerable.

I went on holiday to Germany with some friends and some girls stopped me, asked for 'eine photo', I told them sure I'll take one for them, but they then said that they wanted one with me.

They giggled and shouted that I was handsome as I walked away.

All in all a pretty flattering weekend, even if I did have to pretend in front of my friends that it totally happens all the time and play it cool.

Interesting tactic. If I were a girl wanting to take pictures of funny looking freaks I'd also pretend I thought they were handsome.

A girl called me "dashing" on Friday, but she said it like "oooh, you're dashing", so either she thought I was a prick for wearing a plaid shirt or just struggles to express genuine emotion.

Regardless she got a VERY exhaustive write up on my primary Incel forum!

When I was in Evian a few years back loads of Chinese tourists kept taking pictures with a black girl in a playground. I know it must have been a bit of novelty for them, but it's one of the eeriest things I've seen in public.

Why have Chinks got to be so racist?

I've had something similar happen to me a couple of times - once in Prague and once here. They were both a group of indistinctly european ladies.

I'm not sure if either I look like some famous Czech celebrity bloke, or possess some quality that is unheard of back in their country, it's a weird hen do challenge thing, if I'm weirdly deformed and haven't realised, or if it's an attempt to steal my wallet.

I wouldn't say I'm very striking either way, not particularly handsome or particularly ugly, so fuck knows. Someone once told me I look like a less fat Ryan Dunn, maybe they thought I'd risen from the dead.

Czech girls are really delightful. Very open when they notice that you're not from there. And a lot of them speak improbably fluent English.

German girls, well... I found them to be a bit tedious. I went on a business trip to Cologne for a week a while ago and got to sample some of the local night life (Cologne prides itself in having one of the best club scenes in the whole country there. Which doesn't seem an outlandish claim, but be prepared to meet many bumders as Cologne is also Germany's gay capital, with many all-gay bars and clubs). Anyway, German lasses will quite happily accept a drink from you and chat for a while, but they seemed difficult to please when you tried to have any kind of casual conversation with them. The kind of small talk we do in a pub here on a Saturday night when chatting somebody up somehow just doesn't resonate with them. And they will candidly bring up every single cliché about Brits that is known to them, for example that we have shit food (which they will know from spending a week in a two-star b&b in Brighton once), that young Brits can't behave on holiday, or that our women are ugly. Oh, and one of them also asked me why we're so shit at football. They also won't let you practice your German on them, and instead will put on their best MTV/youtube English and think that you will enjoy listening to them speaking it.

Czech girls, by comparison, tend to be equally good looking, but are a lot more pleasant to talk to, in my experience.

According to a German friend, west German girls are as you describe, but girls from the east are more like the Czech ones - and have a reputation for being easy, apparently.

I also went to Dresden for a few days once, the capital of Saxony, former East Germany. But we didn't have time there to go out after work, and only had a few drinks at the hotel's own bar one night. One of the waitresses, believe it or not, was a student from Cardiff, and she actually stayed to chat with us for half an hour after her shift. She did mention that she felt East Germans were a little more accomodating as a whole. As long as you stayed out of rural areas where they are apparently the complete opposite and don't take kindly to foreigners of any kind, she said it was a pleasant experience.

Any girls from eastern europe, or at least in the general soviet bloc area, are a lot of fun. They're very open about what they want from a man, which is to say someone with a little bit of money and that knows how to use their dick. When I went to Hungary with my friend who was from there, he basically said they're after english blokes as they see them as exotic, rich, and powerful. He also said that all you really need to do is wear a Superdry jacket, as there were no Superdry shops there at the time, and they will immediately identify you as an international man of mystery - he wasn't fucking wrong.

Similar experiences abound in Romania and Czechland. They just don't seem to take themselves as seriously as the women further west, they have a great sense of humour and adventure and are a little bit old fashioned too, I don't think you'd see many Romanian Paul Joseph Watsons.

You mentioned old fashioned. One of the personal trainers where I go to the gym is from some Slavic country (I never really asked, but his name is Jaroslav, Jaro to his friends). And his girlfriend is from western Ukraine. I overheard him talking to a friend in the gym one day while lifting my weights, and he said that he'd just come back from Ukraine where he was on his first ever visit to his girlfriend's parents. He's 25ish and from seeing his girlfriend one time, I'd say she's about in that same kind of age bracket.

Anyway, I overheard him saying to his friend that his girlfriend's parents were kind of disappointed that they made no mention on their visit as to when they were going to get married and have kids. 25 appears to be kind of a ripe old age in Ukraine to still be single and/or dating. I believe he even said that his girlfriend's younger sister, who lives in Ukraine, had her firstborn at age 23.

But I guess exposure to our Western ways here in Britain means that people will also tend to marry later than they would in their native country.

I tried going to the park but it was ridiculously overcrowded and I left in 5 minutes.

I really need a car so I can escape to the countryside and enjoy the weather without hordes of people around me.

I should probably be out enjoying the sun as well, but I'm trying to debug some Arduino C code for a project I am working on. My code stubbornly refuses to compile because it tells me that it can't convert a particular const char* to a const char.

For all its versatility, C tends to be excruciatingly anally retentive about correct variable declarations.

Get a 4x4 and piss off into the greenlanes of a national park. Lovely stuff.

That's a splendid idea but it would have to be a 4x4 that's fairly nimble and practical for inner city driving. Maybe something like an old 3 door Rav 4 or Pajero/Shogun.

Despite being a Land Rover fanatic I think the Pajero is my favourite affordable 4x4. That or the Hilux Surf, but they're a bit big.

How about a VW Golf Country 4x4. It's essentially a bog standard MkII Golf, with all the advantages of its moderate dimensions, but with all wheel drive and around ten inches more ground clearance.

Highly sought after among collectors now. They never made RHD ones though, if I'm not mistaken. One of my parents' neighbours imported one from France ten years ago because he's always been a certified VW nut. Very nimble set of wheels, ideal for city centres, although the 100-hp 1.8-litre VW engine can feel a little out of its depth with the all wheel drive at times. Should've given it something proper, like a GTI 16V engine. Then again, 16V engines back then performed poorly at low revs, which is where you need most of the torque on a 4X4.

I love these, and the offroad Fiats that italian farmers all have, but as you say, they're highly sought after. I can't imagine getting one for cheap. Yet any jap truck from the 90s still has plenty of miles left in it and a lot of them hover around a grand. I really want one of the V6 Shoguns despite my collection of old crap cars being unmanagable as it is.

I'll restrain myself from recommending a 300tdi Disco because it's just never going to be reliable, especially when we're comparing it to the Japs.
