There's an interesting theory about why people get so angry about vegans. It says they know they should be doing something similar and feel guilty because they aren't, then they misplace that anger by directing it at the vegans. It's easier to make snide remarks about the skinny chap quietly eating his flavourless boiled seeds than it is to admit you're in the wrong.

That's not an interesting theory, it's bollocks. People hate vegans because of the vocal minority who are militant in their the shipping forecast and self-righteous fart sniffing. Social media has only propagated the meme.

As the lad earlier on pointed out, those kinds of people are intolerable precisely because they'll try to shame you for having a bacon sandwich, but probably think nothing of all the plastic packaging their food still comes in, the transportation it takes to get it to your local Waitrose, or the pesticides used in its production etc etc etc

These studies combine metrics on fossil fuel extraction, product consumption and fuel usage. Australia is a massive coal exporter so already the claim its average person is emitting 60 times that of a Kenyan is misleading since its largely a consequence of Australia's natural resource profile. Morover these studies neglect what they can't measure. A Kenyan cow that isn't reared by agribusiness, with all its detailed records on fuel and energy usage per head, is still producing a carbon footprint. Everything about these studies overestimates the comparative footprints of Westerners and there's certainly a good rationale for this since they're the places you'd want to coerce into funding climate change solutions. Just take it with a grain of salt, you are not born into sin by being Western.

Another interesting theory is that I have actually worked my whole life to enact change and am embarrassed and frustrated by performative twunts acting like they're the saviours (while asking others why they 'aren't doing anything') and not realising, or caring, that they're being incredibly damaging, so long as they get to post on the internet acting like they're the black bloc of eco warriors.

Just so we're clear, I'm not passively aggressive against this - I am actively aggressive about this. It's detrimental to the cause, and anyone over the age of fifteen should be able to work out why flyposting at 3am is not effective for global industrial policy changes.

No, I only mentioned it at all because you pushed me.

I feel like I shouldn't have to point out that this is an anonymous website. I don't actually gain any kudos by posting anything I do here, because, in case you missed it, it's anonymous.

Again, running about in the street putting cool posters up is not in any way useful, and if anything, makes proper activists with potential to actually do something look bad.

It's also fantastically amusing how quickly we went from "You're a dick because you're not doing anything" to "you're a dick because you mentioned that you are, in fact, doing something"

Are you somehow under the impression that the flyposters themselves are supposed to cause policy change? It does sound like it. It's also very clear that you think you know better than the two hundred academics who signed the letters of support for the movement. You still haven't offered any alternative, only ranted about how everyone else but you is only doing things to try and look good and that's bad.

It's not only false "it's the young people who are wrong!" type rubbish, if the end result is a net good then it's also idiotic to object to it. It's very hard to take any of the objections here as being in good faith at this point. It's all just coming across as knee-jerk "I don't like thing!".

The end result is not net good, it makes people take the other, more effective campaigners less seriously when they're all lumped in together.

Despite this being explained to you several times you still refuse to listen, so I'm not sure what else to say.

Are we all here familiar with the concept of a work wife or husband?

It's been suggested to me that's just a yank thing, and google implies that too, but I've heard the term and experienced the concept loads over here, I'm sure.

Am I a secret yank? Should my girlfriend ever meet my work wife? Am I desperately trying to change the subject of this thread? Who even knows.

It's been said once before and I asked at the time, for the second time, what a better alternative was. There was no answer. Still, I'm sure you know better than the two hundred academics and all the veteran activists involved. The secret way you're drawing mass attention to people's need to change our consumption behaviours without telling anyone about it, that sounds like a great plan.

if consumption behaviours need to be changed, let it be by edict rather than by choice. ration meat. people will get used to it eventually. now you might well say that implementing such a policy is hard - but that tends to be the case with effective policies. i don't want to be a pious, moral individual. i eat meat despite thinking it's wrong - but i wouldn't stand against a government policy of rationing or banning meat because such a policy has the potential to be effective. tackling the supply side (even via direct action, which i don't recommend, which also has dubious effectiveness and is very illegal) is far more effective than tackling the demand side of the problem by moaning at people. with exception to questions around smuggling it's essentially a question of applying economistic solutions to moral problems.

Sure, that's dull and depressing - not fun and engaging like most forms of e-activism, but then i have the fire and brimstone mindset that runs directly contrary to most modern feel-good individualist stuff, so whatever. i'm not particularly invested in this either way, i just thought i'd spell out my case.

Firstly, a government ban/resrticiton on eating meat is far too extreme and raises serious concerns about just how far they can impact your life. The whole point of having a lovely free and democratic society is that we, mostly, live and let live. Secondly, no one wants it and PM Anon would probably find himself protested into a climb down. You could go all Bashir al-Assad about it, but if you're just going to make everything that much worse, what's the point of trying to stop climate change in the first place?

Obviously you're just firing off ideas, but your lack of capitalisation bothered me and frankly it was ill-thought-out.

Meat rationing is a harsher version of my idea of progress, taxing the hell out of it. If you make it expensive for companies to use formerly cheap meat, they will very quickly figure out how to grow burgers in vats. Similarly a levy on combustion engines will very quickly solve that problem too.

We're capitalists whether we like it or not, so these problems require capitalist solutions.

Close corporate tax loopholes and introduce new ones that reward clean energy and responsible farming. Then before you can even sign the thing we live on a better planet.

I've heard it used before at one of my mate's engagement parties, where a lot of his work friends and their partners were present. They all seemed to take it in good faith as a bit of bantz and I felt rather bitter that my girlfriend, at the time, laughed along- Knowing full well I'd never hear the end of it if I ever professed on of my colleagues to be my "work wife".

I don't think it's a common thing though. It seemed to me one of those hideous imported references out of some bland Yank sitcom. These were all deeply tedious cunts who worked in a call centre, and appeared entirely under the thumb of their partners; who were all, every one of them, the exact same sort of fat nasty cow who watches Ru Paul Drag Race and has hideous cat tattoos on their legs. You know the type I mean.

Make of that what you will.

On Saturday, my IEMs broke.
Yesterday, I found my amplifier full of electrolytic fluid, so I'm waiting for new caps to arrive.
Today, the (thankfully replaceable) cable on my ATH-M50xs broke in the way that the ground doesn't connect properly any more, so I'm listening to music with the centre channel removed. It's quite interesting listening to the bits of the music you normally don't hear.

My mother-in-law has invited herself around for the week. She's divorced and has nothing better to do so she uses up the majority of her leave inviting herself around here, although she always deliberately picks weeks when she knows our kids are at school so she doesn't have to spend too much time with them. It boils my piss. She's always slowly shuffling around audibly, breathing audibly or eating audibly; that's without even getting to the snoring. I feel like I can't properly relax on an evening when she's here and 90% of the conversations I've overheard are her moaning about her work, when I can't really think of much worse to discuss in my free time. She'll take my space on the driveway when I go to work, even though her car is a battered old banger and she'd be able to find a decent place on the street to park when everyone else is out at work. She's always doing things like not bothering to turn the lights out when she leaves the room or putting away dirty dishes in the cupboard because her eyesight is poor. She's been doing this for over seven years and not once, not fucking once, has she offered to look after the kids whilst I have a 'date night' with her daughter. It's only Tuesday and I'm out of my fucking mind. The worst thing about it is that she'll be going out places with my other half whilst I'm at work, so I'm spending hundreds of pounds a year for the pleasure of her coming over.

I don't want her to die, but she needs to get a fucking life.

I'm watching an old BBC series called Wings, about the Royal Flying Corps during WW1. It's rather good, and there's an officer who was clearly a big inspiration for Flasheart in Blackadder Goes Forth, at least in terms of his looks and movements. It's a bit uncanny.

I used to have a colleague like that and for the whole time he'd been working along I thought I was in some special kind of hell.
It was almost as if he had a specific intention to do everything as much audibly as he could, including [i]thinking[i/]. Thank god I never had to have lunches with him. People told champing horror stories about those.

My girlfriend and I have been thinking about moving for a while and I've spent a few days just driving around aimlessly finding nice looking areas and that sort of thing.

When I suggested a lovely place overlooking the river and right next to the marina, I mentioned it separately to my girlfriend, my mother, and my closest friend, and they all said almost exactly the same thing - "Yeah but you'll end up spending loads of money on a boat, won't you?"

I don't know where I gained this reputation for being such a financially irresponsible prick enthusiastic, broad minded hobbyist, but I'm not sure I enjoy being so predictable. They're completely right, too, I had already looked up docking fees.

My girlfriend wants to either move to the seafront or closer to the airport, I'm not sure she appreciates just how far my sickness goes, though. I'll either be lost at sea or have a pilots license by the end of the year.

As an aside, I've always held the probably innacurate idea that living on the seafront is a nightmare in terms of your house rotting away from rust and saltwater erosion. But the view would be nice. But then so would being able to walk to the airport.
