New mid-week thread.
I've got the feeling I was meant to look something up but I can't remember what and it's bugging me.

>He said it measured only 14 centimetres when erect
If he really measured his cock in centimetres, I'm guessing he was a huge sperg anyway.

Just made myself the £1 Deep Pan Meat Feast pizza from Tesco's.
For £1, you really can't complain. It's probably made up of horribly unhealthy cheese and meat substitutes, but for a quid, it's a decent sized dinner for a person.

£1 pizzas represent a substantial proportion of my caloric intake. FWIW, I think Aldi's Carlos Stonebaked are the best of the bunch.

I think £1 pizza is a very honest deal. Nobody in their right mind will expect a wholesome food product for that price, even considering that pizza isn't the healthiest food on a good day. You simply get to fill your stomach for a qiud, end of. And with none of the smoke and mirrors of overpriced health foods that aren't so healthy after all.

A £1 pizza isn't a gourmet feast, but it's a pleasant meal that requires less effort than making toast. I think it's pretty much the sweet spot in terms of palatability vs effort. Huel looks and tastes like something from a dystopian science fiction film; the main competitor in the nutritional beige sludge market is literally named after something from a dystopian science fiction film.

I feel like you might be dissing toast here. Careful now.
|>>|| No. 427694
There's nowt wrong with toast, but it's definitely not a meal. Beans on toast is on the border between meal and snack, unless you add a fried egg and some grated cheese.

It's hardly healthy though is it.
This is really one of those "choose two" situations. You can have fast, healthy food, but it won't be nice. You can have fast, nice food, but it won't be healthy. Or you can have nice, healthy food but it won't be fast.
Huel is for people who are willing to pick the healthy and fast options.

I think I accidentally took a double dose of mirtazapine tomight. Kind of forgot that I had already taken a tablet earlier.
A double dose of mirtazapine isn't really dangerous to your health as such, but you spend the whole next day feeling a bit like a drugged down OAP in a care home. Everything feels slow and you've got zero energy, despite sleeping like a baby the night before.
I take mirtazapine off-label as an anti insomnia drug, and it really normally does its job well.

It's definitely healthy, physically at least. I'm not convinced it's mentally good for you to drink gruel.
Is it really that cheap now? It certainly was more expensive when I bought it. It is that price for a huge bulk buy?
|>>|| No. 427701
Good luck, mate. I took it in the morning once after missing a dose the previous night and didn't feel alright until about 1PM the following day.
Try spicy food.
|>>|| No. 427702
I assumed they called it Huel to imply fuel and implying gruel, with all of its negative connotations, was an accident.

The only thing along those lines I've ever tried was a free sachet of slimfast shake in the 90s. It was truly disgusting.

I just find they whole concept of huel depressing.
Here, have some nutritionally balanced slop in between your bouts of wage slavery as you'll be far too tired to actually cook a half decent meal.
Marketed as some sort of cool lifestyle alternative for the busy modern health conscious person. Nah mate, not for me.

I read that Soylent etc can screw up your teeth since you're not really using them anymore.

If you're going for meal replacement shakes you might as well just buy complan, cheaper over all.

I'm thinking of getting one of those evaporative air coolers, I don't fancy paying four hundred quid for an actual aircon unit, and I can't imagine the indoor units are very good or efficient anyway, considering they have to generate heat to work.
Whereas an evaporative cooler is obviously just a fan in which you can shove a bucket of ice water. It sounds lovely but I'm wondering if there's a catch.
|>>|| No. 427735
Evaporative coolers rely on the air not being humid to start with, and make it more humid by their action. Great in Arizona, more nuanced in blighty.
The indoor units do generate heat, but blow it out the window (or whatever hole you provide) along with the extracted heat. It's not as if they magically make heat go away, they need somewhere to put it. If you can organise that, they're pretty good.
|>>|| No. 427736
The indoor ones are alright, as long as you have somewhere for the exhaust pipe to chuck the hot air out without too much backflow. A catflap works wonders.
|>>|| No. 427738
The portable aircon units which have just a single exhaust pipe are horrifically inefficient. The labelling on them may also be misleading about their cooling capacity (but UK laws might be a bit different to the example in the video below.)
The units with both and inlet and outlet duct to the outside are much more effective if you can find one.
|>>|| No. 427742
You know I have been seeing that exact video floating around YouTube lately before you'd posted it, Funny, considering the time of year, that you'd want to discredit humble portable air cooler units...
Smells like a Big Aircon stitch up to me. How much are they paying you lad?
|>>|| No. 427743
To be honest though, his video seems like he's making a fair point that the hot side of your air conditioning unit should not be inside the same room that you are trying to cool.
Also though, who really needs air conditioning in Britain, for the handful of days in mid-summer that it gets above 28°C. I spent a holiday in Greece once where we thankfully had air conditioning inside our hotel room, but that was because it was still 32°C outside there at 2am.
|>>|| No. 427744
Fucks sake lads, I already said I'm not spending the money for an aircon unit.
I just want a fan that blows ice air at me

I feel like the air conditioning market would be a good thing to invest in now, might really take off in this country soon.
|>>|| No. 427754
In a climatological sense, air conditioning machines are a perpetuum mobile. They contribute to global warming through their immense hunger for electricity, as 60 percent of the world's electricity is still generated from fossil fuels, and with yet more global warming, you will want more air conditioning.
Not a green investment, unless powered by renewable energy resources one day in the future, but certainly an investment that should have its merits.
It will be interesting to see CO2 as a refrigerant replace the much more harmful HFCs that are still used today. CO2 can simply be taken from the atmosphere or directly from industrial exhaust emissions, and a leaking air conditioning system will only emit carbon dioxide that was taken from the atmosphere to begin with, and not HFCs which are many times more potent as a greenhouse gas.
I understand one of the main problems with CO2 is still the very high operating pressure of around 1,300 psi. On the other hand, due to the thermodynamic properties of carbon dioxide, such an air conditioning system appears to need much less refrigerant by volume, and therefore the whole system can have much smaller dimensions.

Is it worth putting a cheeky fiver on Boris?
It's a sorry state of affairs when it's more likely to see Boris get ice cream down his shirt than make a good decision for the country.
