Weekend thread: bangers and mash edition.

If that lad with all the instant mash is about then I may have a business proposition for him; I went a bit overboard buying wholesale bags of Quorn sausages from Farmfoods.

mashlad inspired me to buy a 4kg bag of maggi brand instant mash from Amazon. It's not bad at all.
I'm aware it's not haute cuisine - but mash, in various forms, is my go-to comfort / instant / whatever food.

I think I saw it as a challenge to like it when I was a wee-un since my older, somewhat bossy sister couldn't bear the stuff. I'll echo the above sentiments - if you're not enjoying it you're probably using too much. Slather it on like jam and it'll be far too strong. Add a small touch and let it melt in to unsalted butter you've spread in advance. Marmite is there to provide the saltiness along with the umami (or what have you) that makes it so uniquely wonderful.

The most important part of mash is one many people gloss over - the type of potato used.

The Maris Piper is a good choice as it's very versatile, but I think the King Edward is the best British spud for the mash job. They're just about perfect texture wise and they have a lot of flavour meaning you might not even have to add that much to them. More on that later.

Irish potatoes, when they ever do make it over here, are what you should be buying, they're just really fucking good. Roosters are nice - if you like leaving the skins in your mash, they're a good choice as they add more of that earth flavour you get from 'dirty' mash as they call it. Queens are, to my taste, the perfect choice for mash, but though they make the fluffiest, their high dry matter content does mean you might need more adulterants in the final mix.

Desirees are very good if you're into super smooth velvet mash rather than fluffy.

The cheat code for good mash is dairy, mind. milk and butter can, unsurprisingly, improve your spuds exponentially. Robouchon apparently used to use as much butter as potato by weight at the height of his game. I say apparently, I believe my sources entirely.

Mustard is always a good shout, though I'd rather have dijon than english, because you can use more to give it a better 'bite' without overpowering it with the mustard heat.

Roasting heads of garlic takes just about exactly the same amount of time as it does to heat up and boil your potatoes, so is clearly a sign from god that they were meant to be. Simply squeeze the good stuff out right into the spuds as you're mashing/ricing. I don't normally advocate for truffle oil, but adding a few splashes to roast garlic mash works fantastically.

I have a couple of personal mashes: we did a vanilla mash for a while that definitely tasted much better than you imagine, it goes great with duck. I thought I had invented that one, but I found out in The French Laundry cookbook that Keller had being doing it with seabass for ages. Or so he claims. Prove it.

The other one the exact recipe I've kept a closely guarded secret for years and was known internally to colleagues as 'crack mash'. I of course can not reveal the exact amounts to you all (actually I've just forgotten because I'm old and can't be arsed to find my recipe book) but it included soy sauce, dried shiitake (there's a very involved process in making them powdery enough to not ruin the texture of the final product, in retrospect probably not worth the effort), Parmesan, chicken stock we made in house and dehydrated for other purposes (though at one point I switched to essentially chicken demi glace), you get the idea. It was an umami bomb, but not overpowering - it still tasted like mash, just really, really addictive mash.

After writing that and thinking about >>424677, I bet a bit of marmite would work wonders and be a much less fiddly version of my crack mash, though probably (hopefully) not quite as remarkable. Miso mash would be class, too.

I fucking love mash.

Don't use too much, but more importantly have it with butter. Lots of butter, get the butter all melted and mix the marmite in when you spread it.

Parsley mash is good stuff, I imagine sage and onion would go well with your roast chicken dinner.

I remember melted cheese from school too, though I thought it made it a bit gloopy. It's pretty hard to make bad mash, though.

When I was in hospital for a month I really craved mash, and didn't clock for about three weeks that 'creamed potato' as it was written on the menu was actually mash. I was very annoyed with myself that I'd not figured that out sooner, though I suppose I was off my tits on morphine at the time.

>Not sure about the Quorn sausages though. Do Farmfoods do bulk buys of Linda McCartney by any chance?

The Quorn sausages were £3.99 for a 2.04kg bag. They're 'Best of British' ones rather than the frozen ones; I've had a Google and these ones are usually £2.50 for a 240g pack of four, although those are ones for the fridge rather than the freezer. I've never had them before but apparently one sausage has the same salt content as half a small pizza from Domino's, so they must be good.

I'm not a fan of Linda McCartney sausages. Quorn ones are alright if you pan fry them so they're crispy on the outside. The best ones I've found are the supermarket own brand ones; Farmfoods has a surprisingly decent vegetarian range but I'm not keen on their sausages as they taste like the Linda McCartney ones.

Probably similar reasons to most people, it was my real vice, I would drink a can or two a day, could literally not help but think about when I'd next have a can of coke and it was giving me sore teeth, making me tired and was all round just something I really didn't need. Thought I'd give no fizz 2019 a go (with the exception of sparkling water).

Now I'm the exact same, the amount of sugar and sweeteners and acids I drank just from fizzy drinks alone astounds me. What on earth was I thinking?

Bizarrely I eat much better, because I fancy sugar less, and pay more attention now to what's in my foods.

>>424696
Interesting, I was having lunch with a friend and they ordered a coke and I felt nothing at all. I realised earlier than I don't even look at the fizzy drinks section in shops anymore, whereas before I would not be able to resist torturing myself.


It's bizarre how such a small change has benefitted me so much, I would wholly recommend.

It's strange because at one point, I'd have considered myself wholly addicted to soft drinks like coke too. But I think it was mainly just because my mum always bought a big pack of cans on the weekly shop. I stopped drinking them more or less entirely just because I'd moved out, and I'm too lazy (and tight arsed) to buy additional things to drink besides tea and coffee. It was definitely more than a can or two a day; it was all I used to drink at one point and my teeth show it. But weirdly it just went away on its own through the lack of will to go out and fuel the addiction myself. The only time I have coke now is if I order it with fast food or a takeaway, or get some in as mixer with alcohol- I still enjoy that syrupy, sugary goodness; I just know it's hardly good for me so it's fortunate I don't have it often.

I've got to be honest you lads sound like complete poofters going on about how you used to be can a day coke addicts and now you're clean you can't even finish a can.

So yeah, cheers mum.

Took the oven to bits today and completely cleaned it out.

As someone else posted here recently, very satisfying.

Also, completely descaled the kettle, dishwasher and shower heads with white vinegar - it is a wondrous household cleaning fluid, particularly at 39p a bottle. WHY DID I NOT KNOW THIS BEFORE - should be taught in schools.

(Also, why did I not know there are two competing spellings of wonderous).

Do you ever ask a question, especially on the internet, where you know 90% of the answer and want it confirmed by someone else, and then you get fifteen messages telling you to do something else, something you know isn't accurate?

I don't know if there's a word for that but it's very unpleasant.

I'm literally looking at a replacement hub for my bike wheel, it's the same hub as the one that's there already, but isn't knackered like mine is. I asked the 'experts' on a forum how easy it is to re-lace a wheel if you've never done it before, explaining my predicament.

Most of them have told me it's too expensive and almost impossible to find the right replacement hub, and that it's cheaper to buy a new wheel. The hub is £7.50 on amazon and is the same one. A replacement wheel would be £60.

I don't understand.

That sort of thing was probably taught in Home Economics, a subject which I imagine has been renamed and is probably viewed with suspicion since it conjures up images of Hausfrau lessons. Let alone giving modern teenagers knives and ovens to play around with.

We did some cooking at my school but I rememeber washing up more than anything. Certainly we never made anything particularly tasty. Vinegar indeed has a million uses, it's the sort of thing people used to learn from their gran.

Not as cheap but equally good (and with much less smell) is "lemon salt" (citric acid). Ignore the stuff from the cleaning aisle, if you have a turkish or chinese supermarket near you they'll have it for not very much. A few spoonfulls in the kettle and its shining like new.

Wheelbuilding is harder than it looks, especially on an old rim that might be a bit crooked and especially if you don't own a truing stand. A £7.50 hub is going to be absolute dogshit and re-using old spokes and nipples is generally a bad idea. Decathlon will sell you a basic replacement wheel for £22, which is less than you'd pay for a hub, a box of spokes and nipples and a reasonable-quality spoke wrench.

Sure, but it's the same model as the one I started with so I'm willing to deal with it.

>re-using old spokes and nipples is generally a bad idea

For any reason other than wear and tear? They're only a couple of hundred miles old which is exactly why I don't fancy chucking the whole wheel.

Citric acid is the best thing really. Also for kettles and coffee machines. You can buy it by the tub on eBay for cheap. Most limescale removal products in regular supermarkets also contain mainly citric acid.

Not really, you're talking about it, posting about it online, maybe even calling into a radio phone-in to make a bell out of yourself, which is, broadly speaking, the point of a protest, to get chins wagging, eyeballs focusing. I don't think they were expecting the red paint to suck excess Co2 from the atmosphere, or form a set of glyphs spelling out how to develop a cold fusion reactor. I'm not really arsed if they're middle class, given the cost of public transport that only makes sense, their message is spot-on and they've done a fine job getting it talked about.

Yes it was. You not knowing what the definition of paint is doesn't mean it isn't paint.

About 400 demonstrators, including families with children, spilled more than 200 litres of red paint to make the severity of climate change “viscerally clear”.

>There was an article in the Graun yesterday about raising fisherperson boys and it sounded like an absolute nightmare.

Here we go:

Looking back, there were a lot of things I should have talked more about to the boys. Many of my friends turn out to have strategised. One friend said: “Make it normal to bring up topics around the table – talk about Brett Kavanaugh, the middle-class white male dominance of government, pornography, social media, talk about strong women and men.” Someone else admitted to “constant nagging on my part about how to treat women, with the occasional lecture on systemic Sea Shepherd Conservation Society”. Then there was the friend who admitted that her sons tended to be all, “There goes mum, banging on about fishing again, yawn.”

...

At one meal, when I tried to explain to a table of men and boys why #MeToo was a necessary act of mass civil disobedience, how the ideal of a rule of law actually shielded white men and protected the status quo, how most women who are assaulted never get justice, it all fell apart. The meaning of rule of law was explained to me. I lost it and walked away in tears. But you know what? I don’t regret it. Sometimes an argument should be that emotional.

...

Teach your son consent, too, by giving him control over his own body by asking him if he wants to be hugged or kissed. Learning this lesson will mean he will grow up being considerate to others.

If you jump into a conversation responding in someone's place it's generally assumed that you're agreeing with what they've previously said unless you explicitly say otherwise.
So either it's actual paint which is harmful and hard to clean up or you jumping in to screech that "actually flour and water is also called paint" is irrelevant.

We need to have a little chat about this cunt off, lads.

It's one of the worst I've seen. Not the topic of the argument, but the way it is being argued. Bad grammar, reaction videos, people not understanding how an anonymous cunt off even works - it's not good enough. Either start cunting properly, or face the consequences.

A proper kebab and shawarma place run by some very nice lads from Iran had its opening this week, and since Thursday I've eaten there three times, once for lunch, one for a colleague's leaving do on Friday night and third time got it delivered for last night's dinner. It is unbelievably fucking good, the last time I had shawarma that tasted that good was in Berlin and I've got no self-control when it comes to great doner. They make all the sauces from scratch and everything.

Consequently I have spent all of today doing 3 (three!) monster shits each the size of a baby's arm and feel like I've lost 15 pounds and no small amount of dignity, but it was worth it.

I think I finally gained the admiration of the indimitaing little old chinese lady that runs the local asian supermarket. She clearly saw me as just another one of the tiresome nerds that came in to buy instant noodles and Pocky, but has noticed now that I'm just as interested in buying pork blood and beef necks and that sort of thing, and has started to treat me with something approaching kinship.

I agree it's very poor parenting and done like this, entirely counter-productive - but there is probably something at the root of it. Taking the piss out of your kids like this is a stupid way of communicating a concern one might have about something, I agree totally on that point, nobody should be unkind, particularly to ones own offspring.

If you've historically had a very poor (uncommunicative) relationship with your kids, "haha you're fat, no just joking" is a terrible way to do it. Many families have history that gets in the way (which people realise and deal with much too late). But there is no such thing as a joke.

I totally agree that taking the piss back is the right defence, though.

No. I agree. I know for sure my mum was too nice to me, let me get away with a bit too much, and I spend quite a few years after moving out before even realising that I needed to build up a thicker skin, to learn that you don't always get something just because you want it, to deal with disappointment and rejection - I just didn't have the tools for it, had never experienced any of it. These aren't easy things to learn as an adult.

This is the only place I'd ever talk about this because it sounds so fucking stupid to say "I had a great childhood, I always got what I wanted, woe is me", but it's true. I wasn't a rich kid by any stretch of the imagination, but I fully understand why many rich kids turn out to be jealous, clueless irresponsible adults.

Definitely not saying you have to call your kids a fat cunt, but introducing them to the harsh realities of life is important.

This morning my usual hairdresser wasn't in so I had to have a different woman.

On the negative side, they were playing Heart instead of Radio 2, she could have been gentler around my ears with the clippers and she asked too many inane questions in an attempt to make small talk. In the positive side, she was more thorough so did a better job and she had really big breasts which kept pressing against me. Swings and roundabouts.

Went into A&E tonight because I had a pretty nasty persistent cough due to a recent cold and bronchitis.

I was given codeine drops to suppress the cough. A bit too early to tell if it's successful.

Can any kind of fun be had with codeine? I vaguely remember reading about it being an illegal drug.

Tastes fucking disgusting though. Very bitter, in a quite chemical kind of way. I'm supposed to take it two to three times a day as needed, twenty drops in a few ounces of water.

Was he even old enough to drink alcohol by then?

Then again, IIRC, Drew Barrymore was drinking and doing drugs by age twelve, not long after the movie E.T. and she was going to all the wild Hollywood parties. Wouldn't be surprised to hear one day about the odd pederast or two who shagged her back in those days. You know, in a Kevin Spacey kind of way.

He's roughly the same age as me, so he was likely just about 18 when filming began on the first of the final three films (it was released in 2009).

So that checks out, though of course even I could get drink when I was 15, and I wasn't exactly a multimillionaire actor. I'm sure he'd have been able to find a PA or someone to go get him a bottle of Glenns even on the first film when he was nine or summat.

He's in the TV version of Snatch, which I'm imagining is completely dire. The latest accounting figures show that he earned about £1million from acting in 2017 and his property portfolio is £20million plus.

As you rightly said due to being a pauper not being a teen millionaire movie star, you probably would have had trouble obtaining a constant supply of alcohol which both could have started an addiction, and helped you maintain it.

When my mates and I were that age, our forays into underage drinking went really quite similar to The Inbetweeners. One time when I was 16, we broke into a friend's dad's booze cabinet during the middle of the day and drank almost half of a sealed £90 bottle of whisky. I don't even remember the brand, the bottle looked a bit artisan and it wasn't one of the big known brands. I just remember thinking that it tasted a bit unremarkable for 90 quid, even considering that that was the first time ever that I had whisky to drink. My mate's dad was of course furious, and the poor lad was grounded for two weeks and we weren't allowed to visit him anymore for some time.

>People never believe me when I say me and my mates went out to nightclubs at 15 and they just let us in. Utterly bonkers. They must have known.

The story was much the same on Merseyside. I strongly suspect that there was a tacit understanding between the police and nightclubs, along the lines of "the kids will cause less trouble in a nightclub than hanging about on the streets". We were always on our best behaviour because we were thrilled to be in a nightclub and terrified of getting barred, so I suppose there's a bit of sense in it - we wouldn't have been nearly so well-behaved if we were drinking White Lightning on a bit of waste ground. I can't believe that the authorities were oblivious or indifferent to underage drinking on such a massive scale, I think it must have been a sort of ad-hoc harm reduction policy.

The bouncers definitely knew. On a couple of occasions, I saw an older lad get a kicking for touching up a schoolgirl. The past was weird.

The Blackpool method was to hop over a fence into the smoker's section when the bouncer wasn't looking, sponge a fag, conspicuously put out the fag in the ashtray by the door, and then saunter in. Either that, or borrow an ID, and trust that the bouncers won't be able to accurately distinguish a grainy photo of one skinny chav from the skinny chav standing in front of them. Grim.

Three months without fizzy drinks tomorrow.

I don't even look at them in the shop anymore, or if somebody around me is drinking one I feel nothing.

The weirder part is the lack of sugar from them has completely killed my need for sugar from things like chocolate too. I still occasionally have chocolate but I used to be unable to leave the shop without some, now again I will occasionally have some one or twice a week. I actively enjoy my fruit and veg everyday now.

Sugar free ones were largely the ones I had.

Still bad for my teeth, my skin and a disincentive to drink water instead. Sweeteners still seem to have the same effect of tricking my body into thinking I'm getting something sweet and make me crave more, and even if that is pseudo-science (which I'm sure it is) it just put me in that mindset of eating and drinking bad things.

I've never done things by half either.

Thirty isn't the end of the world, lad. The changes in your life won't be sudden now that you're 30, but they will be gradual. At some point in the next few years, the parties will become less frequent and so will the casual shags. People around you will "settle down", have kids and start buying property, and nights at the club getting off your tits on Red Bull vodka will eventually be superseded by dinner parties with expensive wine and tableware and conversations about paternity leave and world politics.

So you see, it's more going to be a slow painful death.

It's not the end of the world but you can see it from here.
30 would be the age I'd start noticing that I haven't really achieved anything valuable in my life and prolly won't. Would be; my ma died when I was 22 so I had this crisis a tad earlier. I suspect the apathy had won at some point as I really feel tired - mentally, not physically - most of the time and about the only things I'm rather committed to doing is, ironically, looking after myself at the basic level: cooking, exercising etc.

I've objectively achieved quite a lot in my life, but the crisis is still there. I think it's very hard, if not impossible, to avoid thinking you're not living up to someone else's standards now. You're exposed to (the appearance of) massive success in all media. I know a literal, actual Olympic athlete with gold medals, and even she bangs on about how she's wasting her life. People aren't allowed to be comfortable or content anymore, it seems.

I can't imagine a better life than earning just enough money to live comfortably and just do whatever you feel like in your spare time, but even those people end up fretting about the regret of not having a 'real career' or whatever it is they think they're lacking. It's a shame.

This is one of the few things I've had some mild success with. About 60% complete - I haven't secured it satisfactorily.
What is enough money for living comfortably is a different topic. Once I about managed to make it into position where I earned enough to afford to buy myself a flat with just about 10 to 12 months of judicious amassing of savings. These days I don't make anything close to that; in theory my salary is so-so alright, in practice I can't buy a house or a flat without bending over to banks and going into debt. Not too good.

Depends. Is that atmosphere worth tolerating for an extra eight hundred quid or so a month? Only you can answer that.

If someone told me they were going to make my workplace shitty enough that I'd want to quit, but would sweeten the deal with an extra forty quid a day, I don't think I'd take it, but I suppose it depends on how much of a pay rise that actually is for you. If you're already on a hundred grand it's almost certainly not worth it, if you're on 30k that could be a significant, near lifechanging amount.

Only you can answer this really. But at least you know you're worth ten grand more than you thought you were, that's useful information.

>I think it's very hard, if not impossible, to avoid thinking you're not living up to someone else's standards now.

And that is exactly the culprit. The reason why so many people feel unhappy about themselves and what they have been doing with their lives. Usually when you are a slight bit older, the wisdom will come to you that everybody else can just go bugger themselves and that it is your life that you have to live, not theirs.

>You're exposed to (the appearance of) massive success in all media.

Don't make the mistake of judging your success in life as a human being by the alleged achievements of a small handful of bold and beautiful people who appear to have it all. First of all, a lot of people desperately try to keep up false appearances, but even if somebody is a company CEO or an acclaimed movie star with a ten-bedroom house and a seven-figure income, that says nothing about whether or not he is a) happy with his life, and b) if he is a sufferable human being, at all, when the cameras are off.

You can have your goals in life, and they are a healthy thing to have, and all the better if you eventually achieve them, but just because you just about get by on an average salary with a humdrum job and career and aren't married by age 35, doesn't mean you have failed as a human being in this world. If you are happy that way, then you have achieved something that a lot of supposedly successful people couldn't be further away from. They won't tell you that, and they will hide behind a big house, a big car and a fancy sounding job title in middle management. All to conceal the fact that quite a few of them regularly ponder putting a bullet in their own head to end their constant emotional misery.

Well, exactly. That's what I was trying to get at, really.

I made a load of money at work and I was miserable, so I know that side of the coin well. Most of the happiest people I know are those who race bikes for a living. They barely scrape by on sponsorship deals and such, even world champions sometimes looking at making less than 30 grand in a year. But they get to travel the world and do what they love, so why the fuck would they care.

Sometimes the age comes alone.
Not intending to start a cunt-off though. It reminded me of a bloke to whom this wisdom came at the sunset age of sixty. A friend of a friend of somebody I know; a rather interesting lad that had carried the curse of being a people-pleasing pushover for the major part of his life.
I still have no idea what exactly made him quit. It must be quite sad to have to go through it at that point of life - I can attest, having eliminated certain habits and then asking myself why I hadn't done it five years ago.

Indeed. Made a few mil, left my career early thirties. Playing video games in pyjamas is only fun for a short while.

For me the problem with early retirement is no longer having a sense of impact on the world despite the skills to do so. My professional niche doesn't really do part-time or volunteer work. My own lack of ambition is at fault here; you must have a clear vision of what to do with the rest of your life before leaving the rat race.

I tried to fix the bathroom sink tap valves earlier because the tap was dripping. I tried to remove the valve covers to get to the valves, which involved putting a hammer to them because they were corroded onto the actual valves. It then turned out that hammering on them must have knocked loose some of the limescale inside the valves which was probably the reason why the valves were dripping in the first place. So far so good, the tap no longer drips, but it seems that the cold water shutoff valve under the sink now leaks. I had to loosen the shutoff valve knobs with a pipe wrench because they too were corroded, and now there is water ever so slightly weeping from the cold water shutoff. I put an empty jar under it, and within the space of two hours, about a shot glass worth of water has dripped into the jar.

I can't just replace the shutoff valve because it would involve having the whole building's cold water shut off, and the landlord would probably not be pleased if he knew that one of his tenants is messing with the plumbing. The warm water shutoff would be easier to replace, because all the warm water comes from the boiler right here in my flat and that boiler has a valve for the warm water.

Suggestions welcome.

I can't work out if I have a tooth teetering on the edge of needing a filling or it's just some weird thing that can happen that nobody ever talks about.

I've had a ballache of an afternoon. My lad's car just stopped running and the AA couldn't fix it at the roadside. They towed the car to a garage, but being a Sunday it was shut. So the garage know the car is there and he posted the keys into their letterbox and they will inform him what the problem is tomorrow hopefully. My lad was still 40 miles away from his destination, so I've just got back from a 200 mile round trip to pick him up and drop him off then get back home again. If the garage can sort out what the electrical problem is, I'l most likely end up footing the bill for it as well.

I know this doesn't help you now, and AA bloke probably already mentioned it, but getting the "We'll get you to your destination when your car's knackered" option on the coverage (don't know what it's called on AA, I have RAC) is absolutely worth it, particularly if you have an older car, or a teenager with a shitbox Corsa or whatever.

He has that as part of the coverage, but the fact was he was going out to the arse end of nowhere. So he was dropped off at the nearest AA certified garage to his destination. Otherwise he would've had to be towed to where he was going and still have a car that needed to be towed to a garage to fix it.

It seems like the ECU has gone tits up and the car will start to turn over before just spluttering then cutting out. The AA man couldn't get a definitive reading off the system to pinpoint the problem. Hopefully a thorough inspection will sort it out.

I'm talking about Onward Travel. Maybe it's just an RAC thing, but when my car dies and I still need to be somewhere (as it often has, I buy some interesting cars), they sort me out with a hire car/train ticket/whatever to get me there. It also covers a night in a hotel if you needed that for whatever reason, apparently, I'm sure I read that somewhere too. Again, not very helpful to you right now, and maybe you have to be a certain age to get that part of it, as rental places aren't usually fans of renting to young'uns.

>the car will start to turn over before just spluttering then cutting out

God, that could be a load of things, from ECU being knackered to a fucked gasket to a dirty MAF sensor. I hope it's not too difficult to solve. What car is it, out of interest?

>It's probably your sinuses rather than your teeth

This. When your sinuses are proper bunged up, the inflammation can spread down to your upper jaw and irritate the nerves of your teeth. Happens to me now and then every other winter.

Go see your GP or go into A&E and have them x-ray your sinus cavities. A sinus inflammation will typically show up as slightly lighter areas on the x-ray. And then take the course of antibiotics that you will likely be given, because that's the only thing that will really help. Been through it enough times myself.

The car is an 07 reg diesel Fiesta. It just started spluttering, went into limp mode then died at the side of the road. As you said it could be a myriad of things, but I hate all the electrics on modern cars. I'll have a look at the policy and see what level of cover he has, but being 20 there's no way he was getting a rental. The biggest pain in the arse was the fact it was a Sunday, so very little in the way of buses running and no train station nearby.

This is quite interesting. I've had some severe problems with my sinuses in the last 3-4 years, leading to a lot of weird cold-like symptoms and a lot of dry mouth. Turns out I have kind of collapsed sinuses, which explains why I'm also a heavy breather.

I was recently very close on dropping 3 grand on a mk2 Golf GTI, with the plan to do it up. The engine was a non-starter, but the body seemed in good nick. I did a HPI check on it and apparently it was reported stolen 2 months prior. Which explains why it was so cheap. I still want to get an old Volkswagen that you can just repair with a bit of know how and a set of spanners.

It turned out that the seal on the ECU had gone so moisture got into it and fried it. A second hand ECU with fitting and tuning cost £175. Thankfully it was a fairly cheap fix, 55 quid of it was for a second hand ECU.

I still have a bit of a cold and I'm supposed to be going out with a bird tomorrow. Anyway, my cold was better this morning but I wanted to clean myself out a bit so I looked online for things to do:
https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/sinusitis-sinus-infection/

Turns out I'm a bit thick though. Maybe it was the substituting bicarbinet of soda with baking soda or getting frustrated with the hand sniffing and opting for a bottle I can squeeze water into my nose with. Maybe I just used too much salt. At any rate, my sinuses are now very, very angry with me. I'm sure some /A/ lads will know the pain.

What can I do? She's done a good job getting in my head. I like her and had planned on asking if she wanted to take this into a relationship. Hence the stupidity.

Most 'cold relief' tablets will ease sinus inflammation, as will ibuprofen.

I wouldn't fuck about squirting salt up your nose again m8. A teaspoon in a pint still seems like it'd irritate your mucous membranes.

Also, bicarb of soda and baking soda are exactly the same thing. Baking powder is different, that's bicarb with an acid added, so if you used baking powder no fucking wonder your head hurts, that's like snorting a bag of Tangfastics flavouring.

Speaking of diarrhoea and shit, is it possible to get food poisoning from a fucking tea bag?
I had one recently, I'm at a loss what I must blame for it. There aren't many choices: either my lunch - a meagre bowl of bulgur with a bit of onions and a few pinches of paprika and turmeric powder - which went in very well, or a cup of tea I had later. The latter wasn't too good right from the start and it didn't get any better after an hour as I still had that bitter aftertaste from it in my mouth.
It didn't end too well, I had to pray to the big porcelain god once I got home. Also spent a good half of the night without sleep, shivering under two blankets.

It's possible a teabag can go mouldy or off if it's somehow got itself damp in storage - seems unlikely and you'd probably have noticed, but who knows. You might have just drank a big warm pint of mouldy tea, if you have six sugars or something you could have feasibly missed it, though like judgementalcuntlad says your lunch doesn't sound like the lunch of someone who has six sugars in their tea.

I swear to God, so many people seem to think that if they so much as touch a dumbbell they'll turn into Arnie overnight. I mean, do they even know how much effort it takes just to become even a fraction of his size? Even if you're enough of a jelly-brain to take roids we're still talking years and years of dedicated training. Doing a bit of weights makes you look so much better, you don't have to look 'ripped' to see the benefits - it shows in your overall frame and posture.

Oh well, if people want to make daft excuses I'm happier looking better by comparison and having a free weight area.

Gymlad here. I go two, sometimes three times a week, but not with the intent of becoming a poor man's Schwarzenegger, but simply to stay in shape. I lift a few weights here and there and I get on the treadmill, but due to my lack of focus on muscle mass buildup, you would probably not really guess that I follow a pretty consistent gym regimen.

The lads at our gym who are in it for the muscle, however, tend to work out twice as hard and you hear them say they go up to four times a week, and their schedules - and diets - are often finely tuned towards achieving their goals.

By comparison, I more or less just faff about at the gym, despite an undoubtedly noticeable positive effect on my overall physical conditon.

As a gay lad, I don't think that the guy on the right looks good. His body fat % is too low to go out on the lash. A strong core, strong back, strong arms is all I really give a shit about. This picture is two extremes at either end of the spectrum and focus almost entirely on aesthetics. I doubt that lass simply doesn't eat, though. Sedentary life styles don't leave people looking like that.

It's amazing how much just pissing about at the gym improves your mental health and your libido though. In my NHS Trust, you can be prescribed gym time and you get a membership at the local council run gym at a steep discount with a one on one trainer.

I kind of always thought he was an annoying scrawny little clown.

There was a lad at my school who looked like his doppelganger and was heavily on the sperg side, and I mean he was really massively challenged in social interaction. But not in a way that you had pity on him, but in a way that you thought he was really an annoying little fuck who was begging to get your fist in his face. His family had moved to London from East Anglia, and there were rumours that their village was next to a toxic waste landfill and that that messed up his brain while growing up.

So in summary, maybe that's why I never really cared much for Lee Evans.

I know no one here cares about football, but I wonder what's more depressing, doing your absolute best, which is really bloody good, and still probably coming second, Liverpool style, or completely imploding and dying on your arse like Dortmund are right at this moment?

Aren't they more an also-ran among German football clubs the last few years?

I know Bayern Munich are posh cunts, but they know how to play the game.

I was actually invited to a Schalke home game on a business trip a few years ago. I think they were playing against Kaiserslautirn that day. Really quite an experience. German fans are much better behaved. Even the drunk troublemakers seemed to be less aggressive than a lot of the ones you see at games here in Britain.

They are, but this year they were large and in charge until the winter break and since then they've shat the bed over and over until there are no more clean sheets left, if you'll pardon the pun. Usually the Bundesliga just gets bossed by Bayern and they've wrapped it up by this stage in the season, so even the second most massive club doing so well was a suprise.

Yeah, I don't know why top flight English games have such a cunty atmosphere, even now when many of the matchday fans are blokes who drive Audis but still wear flatcaps. You'd think they'd be a bit more sanguine at that age.

I tend to always revolt inside when people wish me things. When somebody says, "Have a nice day!!", I always feel like telling them "How much do you honestly fucking care if I have a nice day? On a scale of minus ten to zero?". Also, "Nice to meet you". Don't bother if you really only think it's the right thing to say at that moment, i.e. the polite way to greet a person as dictated by social etiquette.

Just got some take away from my local chippie round the corner. There was a lad there in the queue in front of me who was so off his tits that he had trouble standing up straight and putting a sentence together. He then became aggressive when he got his chips because he felt they were undercooked and the owner refused to dump the half eaten chips with ketchup on them back into the fryer. And I mean, proper aggressive, shouting abuse and everything. So the owner said to him that the chips were on the house but that he didn't want to see the lad in his shop again.

For some reason women who have recently been interested in me are treating me like I'm much more attractive and interesting than I actually am.

The annoying part of this is that they overanalyse everything, I get annoyed then we fall out.

For example if I say 'I'm going to the cinema with a friend' one responded 'oh you said that weird, why didn't you name the person.', it's no big deal, and I'll happily explain but then it removes an element of trust.

I don't know why I find this infuriating but it has made me feel like I now how to justify everything I'm doing otherwise it looks suspicious or I have to put up with their bullshit trying to catch me out when there's nothing to catch.

I don't know why I find this so annoying but it's weird it's happened with two girls in a row.

Just got back from Ikea.

They've got some real bargains in the beds department, but all of them kind of seemed a bit low standard. I kind of nearly settled for one that would have been about £750 including the mattress, but I just wasn't won over.

Does anyone know the legality of carrying a folding saw in public? Minus the handle, its length is aproximately 10 inches and has a plastic locking mechanism. There are around fourty 1cm long blades along a side of its length.

It's perfectly legal to carry a saw in public, it's entirely possible a copper would try and count it as a knife but A) he'd be wrong to do so and B) you'd presumably have 'good reason' to be carrying it anyway.

It's a bladed or pointed article within the meaning of s.139 of the Criminal Justice Act 1988. It doesn't matter that it isn't a knife, it's still sharp and pointy. You can perfectly legally carry it in a public place if you have good reason to do so. Bear in mind that the burden of proof lies with you, not the prosecution - carrying it is illegal unless you can prove that you have a good reason. If you're on your way to your allotment or a gardening job, you're almost certainly fine. If you just leave it in the back of your car, they can and will prosecute you for it if your face doesn't fit.

blade: noun

1 The flat cutting edge of a knife, saw, or other tool or weapon.


If you want to argue in court that no part of a folding saw is either a blade or sharply pointed, be my guest. Given that someone was convicted for possession of a blunt butter knife with a rounded tip, I don't fancy your chances.

My usually aloof housemate keeps telling me I should try modelling.

I am definitely not model material but he keeps exchanging my name for 'Brad Pitt' (I definitely don't look like Brad Pitt in any way either).

I don't know how many times I can awkwardly tell him I'm simply not even close to being a model, but he keeps saying things like 'guy to guy, you just have the broad appeal'.


He's now offering to get his good camera out and take some shots of me.

Looking at the latest youtube videos from Maspalomas at the moment, in preparation for my trip to Gran Canaria in two weeks.

They've got the Maspalomas Pride going on at the moment. I think it's for about ten days in early May every year. Rumoured to be one of the biggest festivals of its kind.

I'm not going to say I intentionally planned my holiday to be after the end of Maspalomas Pride, because my arrival date was simply the best deal I was able to get for the place where I always like to stay, but I wasn't really in the mood for that kind of exuberance. On the other hand, I also don't feel threatened by gays, as Maspalomas is a gay The North Pole year-round either way and it doesn't bother me. It just seems like late May is a sweet spot to be there because the Gay Pride crowds are gone and all the summer package holiday chavs won't arrive until mid-June on the island. So if you like things a bit more quiet, that's a good time to go there. You also get good discounts in late May to early June compared to the Easter and summer seasons.

I will be staying in a small apartment complex on the periphery of Maspalomas, with the most stunning ocean view, the kind you simply don't get from all the ten-story tourist ghetto hotels further inland.

It's got some fine performances and great visuals, but it doesn't do a good job at actually portraying the characters as they are in the book.

I never read the book, but always kind of thought you have to approach the film with the idea in mind that you're really just following the senseless antics of two massive druggies who stumble through life erratically, the way anybody would if they constantly consumed the amount of drugs that they seemed to do. The movie at its core was never supposed to make a whole lot of sense. And if you see it like that, it can be a fun ride that you will want to watch again now and then.

Today I've made one of my two/three monthly forays onto Facebook, to check whether I've made the right decision in giving up on it. It's still the right decision.

I know social media should be taken with a pinch of salt, but it bothers me that one of my friends is constantly posting things to make it seem like she's in the perfect relationship when the reality is that anyone who knows her well is aware that it's a complete illusion.

She's likely doing it to kid herself more than anyone else.

I felt sick as a bird earlier so I made the difficult decision to sleep through the FA Cup Final as it didn't seem barfing over. Well, upon my awakening the sickness has gone, but the desire to chuck-up remains.

These are the results you get on FM after you've been at Wrexham for twenty years, but you're too excited about your youth prospects to quit, not actual football.

I guess you're right. At least it's a timely reminder that the majority of what's posted on there is most bollocks.

Other than that, my feed was 90% baby pictures, "I can't go on a day out without posing for dozens of 'artistic' pictures to upload on social media" and one friend who constantly overshares and voices her opinion on everything

Watford didn't even play badly, other than a lack of confidence in the final third, it's just that the City players were ridiculous.

I just read that Scarlett Moffatt's full name is Scarlett Sigourney Moffatt.

Am I just a posh cunt for saying it, or does it seem like it's usually lower class parents who give their children these oddly inspirational names?

I'll admit I'm from an upper middle class upbringing. Fine. But it kind of seems like most posh people tend to choose less outrageous names. And when they're outrageous, they're posh outrageous. If that makes any sense.

My own name is Alexander

Like I said, posh outrageous.

In one of Rob Beckett's standup routines, he has a bit where he talks about the name "Rupert". He talks about being invited to a posh friend's house party, and one of the lads there is called Rupert. And Rob Beckett is like, "Don't get me wrong, Rupert is a lovely name. I just never thought I'd meet one".

Personally, I quite like the name Charlotte. Because that was my grandmother's name and she was one of the kindest people I have ever known in my life.

If I ever have a daughter, that's one that I'd have on my shortlist. And I like classical Latin names, like Julia or Felix or Marcus.

I kept a diary from age 15 through to age 22.

It's kind of mind blowing now reading about all the things I did back then. It contains over 1,000 pages of adolescent drivel. Really the everyday things I did any my thoughts on them. I read the first few pages of it a while ago, it starts a few weeks after my 15th birthday.

Looking at it now from the perspective of an adult, for a 15-year-old, I really had a writing talent. It's written in a way that just draws you in, although I don't believe that was my intention back then; I didn't write any of the endless monologues in it that often went on for five, or even sometimes ten pages with that kind of idea in mind at all.

Fascinating stuff really. It brings back things that you haven't thought about in eons, and it then feels almost like yesterday when it all comes back to you.

The Radio 4 series My Teenage Diary is equal parts cringeworthy and fascinating. I think it's healthy to keep a little bit of your teenage self alive. We all need a little bit of ludicrous over-confidence, a little bit of misplaced anger at the grown-ups, a little bit of wide-eyed naivete.

Spent a night in a group of friends who are mostly poly.

As an embittered virgin, I wish I had the confidence and experience of these people. I kept tight-lipped, but it's just such an alien world to me, and one which in way I wish I could understand - not just having one person being attracted to you, but multiple.

Oh boy.

I saw some lad hit a tree whilst reversing in his Ghibli. He looked like George Dorn from RAW's trilogy. I suspect that kind of discord will lighten his wallet quite a bit.

I have an unfortanate habit of getting girlfriends who are far too attractive to have any right talking to me. I'm convinced that in a 'poly' relationship she'd be having all the fun and I'd end up embittered.

I'm skeptical about a lot of poly couples. I get the impression it was usually one person's idea more than the other's, and it seems so contrary to human nature I can't help but imagine there's a lot of bottled up jealousy in a lot of them. I'm not saying there aren't couples who are perfectly happy with that lifestyle, but I'd be surprised if the majority were. Imagine you've had a really shit day at work, all you want is to come home and cuddle your bloke and where's he gone? Oh right, he arranged to bonk Sandra tonight. Well, hope he's having fun balls-deep in another woman, I'll just break out the Pinot Grigio and put Netflix on. Nah. Human nature is hardwired to a larger extent that we'd like to think.

That's not really a problem if you've got a harem of soy boys at your beck and call. Get on your poly WhatsApp group and one of them will be at your door in 20 minutes with a bottle of sauvignon blanc and a workable semi. It's like Deliveroo for male fisherperson fukkbois.

This is a group of poly couples who are mostly, if not all, bi/pan. I haven't seen any major relationship drama between them, but that doesn't mean it happens. It just seems like they all get with each other interchangeably. They all talk about it so casually, and the whole thing is just unfathomable to even imagine being a part of.

Poly shmoly. Vividly reminded me that Aldington rather brilliantly wrote about this stuff like 100 years ago. And that novel wasn't even about fornicating in the first place.

My girlfriend is poly. From what she's told me it simply sounds like more hassle than it's worth- All the concerns you lot bring up are present even in the most supposedly stable and secure of those relationships, and it goes both ways. When I got with her I told her I wasn't up for any of that nonsense unless there are special circumstances (i.e threesomes), and she happily agreed to be monogamous.

The obvious one is that it can be an easy sausage party for a lass who wants to be a slag without worry, and her boyfriend would have to cope with suppressing the jealousy that she's taken more dicks in a month than he's had fanny all year. But it can also be a nightmare for a bloke who's got three girlfriends and barely has the time to wipe his own arse without having to maintain conversations. I don't know about you lot but I find one woman is sometimes too much, never mind three or more. And then you've got times where normally, you'd simply be the person listening to someone venting their frustrations with a relationship- But it's your own partner bitching about their other partner.

The impression I get is that despite outwardly maintaining the conceit that a poly relationship is a progressive, forward thinking way of preventing jealousy and infidelity, by doing it openly instead. But the reality seems to be that the vast majority of people in such arrangements are actually deeply, deeply insecure. They need the validation of multiple partners, or have some sort of dysfunction that prohibits them from forming a stable one to one relationship.

I'm not saying poly people are all full of shit, but it does seem to be a bit of a fad, mostly enjoyed by hipsters who want to do it as a statement about themselves rather than because it's something they genuinely enjoy. You know. The sort of people who have reptiles, lots of tattoos and a septum piercing.

I'll say it then. I haven't known a single person claiming to be poly who has had stable, lasting relationship/s with other poly people, or people in general. Even with other people who say they're poly it seems that sooner or later it all comes crashing down.

In the interest of fairness, you can say the same about the vast majority of non-poly relationships too.

I have two married mates. I'm certain one of them is heading for divorce; the other one a murder suicide.

The things you find when you click on the random article link on wikipedia -

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anophthalmus_hitleri

>The scientific name of the beetle comes from a German collector, Oscar Scheibel, who was sold a specimen of a then undocumented species in 1933. Its species name was made a dedication to Adolf Hitler, who had recently become Chancellor of Germany. The genusname means eyeless, so the full name can be translated as "the eyeless one of Hitler". The dedication did not go unnoticed by the Führer, who sent Scheibel a letter showing his gratitude
