Getting up early tomorrow to see my parents over the bank holiday. I don't mind the change of scenery but, between their insistence that I come up now and my brother seeing them later in the week, I know I'm going to be put to work on whatever project my mum has decided upon.

Anyone know what I should get for the birthday of a lass I recently started seeing? All I can think of is gimmicky tat.

Melt chocolate, mix in evaporated milk, bash some Creme Eggs into it and leave it in the fridge to set. Piss easy homemade chocolate fudge.

I don't get it either, apparently we brush our teeth in there. Fuck knows how she does it, but I run the tap over the brush I don't dip it in my beard water.

On the ISS, every drop of water gets recycled. So the water contained in your space coffee will probably have gone through the urinary tracts of a dozen people before you. So what harm will a bit of piss do in someone's bathroom sink.

Yes, but on the ISS, the urine is collected and filtered and reprocessed into drinking water very directly. When you piss in your toilet at home, that piss will go on a long journey through the entire ecosystem before it ends up in the groundwater or a water reservoir again from which it is then processed again before it is deemed safe to drink from your tap at home.

Your coffee on the ISS will have been someone else's piss right the day before.

Interesting article about space piss:
http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20150527-solving-a-space-stations-toilet-shaped-problem

Not that easy to tell in the pictures, but I think they need to give astronauts supplements which make your piss go dark brown so that it is easier to filter.

It turns out that the proportion of water you can reclaim back from piss has pretty large implications due to the weight of any clean water that might need to be sent up on rockets to replenish the ISS.

My Facebook sponsored ads are 50/50 for gay dating or Shamanismic investment/zakat apps.

I guess Facebook thinks I'm a gay eskimoc? Being neither, that's fine - it means that Facebook/The Man doesn't know all that much about me, but surely that's dangerous? Muslamism isn't particularly known for its tolerance of LGBTQQIA+, and even having those ads come up on your feed might (falsely or otherwise) out you if a family member or whatever saw it?

Not too sexy when I think about it a little longer.
Speaking of piss, I do recall a small excerpt from Neal Stephenson's Baroque Cycle, a bit too colourful piece of a story, of Danny Waterhouse and Sam Pepys micturating on some wall whilst sharing how good it feels.
Mind you, the general setting is the end of the 16th century and both of them had had an urinary bladder stone removed surgically earlier. Yet again, the joys of health regained.

A while back I was talking to a lad I work with about videogames. He said he only played FIFA, specifically FIFA 2010. I'd since wondered what it was about that version that was so great, but it turns out that it's literally the only PS3 game he's got and he's incredibly tight-fisted when it comes to spending money on games/entertainment in general. That strikes me as a bit odd, I mean even with a budget of a fiver you can walk out of any CEX in the land with literally weeks of fun if you don't mind last gen games.

Anyway, in that spirit I bought Killzone 2 for 50p, so I guess I'll give it a go.

18 to about 22 is teen porn. Depending on your youthful looks. Then it's college/coed, and after that it's MILF.

I saw a stage show at a nude table dance bar in Prague's amusement district a few years ago where they had a "teen model" segment. Really not my age group anymore these days. I felt like a right carpet-bagger when I realised that it was physically turning me on to watch an 18-year-old, 19 at best, shove a bead chain up her minge one bead at a time. While sat on a chair with her legs spread towards the audience.

Done: New trellis up the side of the garden shed as the honeysuckle's overgrown the first one. 2 lavender plants, 1 sage plant, 1 lily of the valley & 3 camellia in the ground. 3 tomato plants strung up in pots. Birdfeeder up, full of seeds.

To do: 6 ivy cuttings, 1 aloe vera pup and 1 lavender cutting propagating, 2 jade leaf cuttings and handfuls of both rosemary and sage cuttings left to pot. Need to build some bee habitats still for the solitaries to lay their eggs in over winter. Take down the rotten parts of the lean-to's roof and replace them with this straw fencing stuff to prepare that area for growing fungi.

Notes: Left an open jar of honey that got left in my cupboard out last week. Ants took most of it, I think, but the remains have had five bumblebees coming and going happily taking them away. Thinking about setting up some sort of sugar-water feeder for them. Bastarding Herb Robert everywhere. Aphids are a growing problem, where are all the ladybirds?

I would assume that stuff counts as a Class 3 dangerous good, (flammable liquid) and it was all kinds of illegal, and unsafe, for that to be in a hold undocumented and unnoticed.

I'm not sure how much, if any, of the responsibility of this would fall on you - this is something security should have picked up on, though I'm willing to bet if they'd found it out there'd be some law you'd broken, from smuggling to militant daft woggery depending on how you look at it.

Plenty of commercial airlines don't even have the proper licensing to carry dangerous goods, so that adds a whole new level to it, as the fine for carrying goods either unlicensed or incorrectly separated is, I think, up to 25% of the airlines annual turnover in penalties. Enough to cripple a small or struggling airline.

Your assumptions about the conditions of the hold are exactly why each dangerous good carries it's own classification and needs to be identified so it can be properly and safely stored. Yes, it's cold up there, and less air pressure, but if there was an animal in the hold, then it was both heated and pressurised. A lithium battery fire (or any fire from any other baggage or cargo) would be enough heat to allow your alcohol to act as an accelerant, too. I'm not sure but I could imagine a spark being enough to get pure-ish alcohol going even at -30C anyway.

While it's mostly likely you're right that your clothes would have absorbed the liquid if spilled, we've all seen how baggage is handled, jostled, and dropped - the container could have easily made its way to the edge of the bag and leaked into the non-absorbent hold floor.

I hate to be That Guy, especially on here, but this sort of thing is exactly what the aviation industry works hard to prevent - the sort of incident that is "very unlikely" but still possible - because if it's possible, it will bring a plane down. I'm not joking or being hyperbolic when I say that your decision absolutely, 100% had a realistic possibility of knocking the plane you were on out of the sky. You were right to worry, and I would advise that you don't do it again, otherwise I'll call the Hertz in Gran Canaria and tell them to stop letting you hire convertible Beetles.

You're probably reluctant to say now you know you might get done for it, but what type of plane were you on? If it was a larger plane like a 777 with ULD loading instead of open net holds, then at the very least the cans had fire suppression systems in them. A smaller 737 or A320 and you'd not have had such measures.

I have Emmental slices which need using up. I'm planning on using them in a pie between the filling (veggie mince) and the pastry but I can't work out whether this is a good idea or not. It's either that or use them with mushrooms and breadcrumbs to make Glamorgan inspired sausages.

You need to work on your point scale there, lad.

Unless you've got a proper middle aged mumsy housewife fetish (in which case, never mind), then I'd hate to find out what you would consider a 5/10 or 1/10 voice.

On that note though - there are clips on youtube of Margaret Thatcher before she had voice training. In the mid-70s before she became PM. She had a proper unpleasant underlying tone in her voice, and it was only through intense voice coaching that she was able to adopt an arguably pleasant speaking voice to belie her cold black heart.

Maasdam was created by the Dutch cheese industry specifically as an answer to Swiss cheeses like Emmental.

Personally, I like Maasdam better, its flavour is slightly more tangy than Emmental.

>One of my female friends recently admitted that the reason she watches the likes of Sarah Millican and Amy Schumer is because they're unattractive so she doesn't feel threatened by them. She doesn't like any female comedians who are pretty.

This kind of mindset seems utterly tragic to me, and is probably more common placed then I'd like to think about.

Imagine living your day to day life with that level of insecurity where you can't enjoy things because you are secretly competing with people and judging them on criteria they aren't aware of and doesn't matter.

If there is such a thing as toxic masculinity this is toxic femininity.

Some women will tell you that they think it's all just because men judge women by their looks and therefore women are pretty much forced to maintain an attractive appearance. They will then also tell you, if you're really unlucky, that this, too, is a sign of toxic masculinity, and that women in that respect merely bear the consequences of it.

But in reality, I have my doubts. It just doesn't track. The desire to compete against other women just seems to be too hardwired in many women to be a more or less cognitive decision. And to then subsume it under toxic masculinity is an underhanded way of deflecting and refusing responsibility for your own actions.

It's the same thing. You can call it toxic femininity, but a fisherperson would prefer you to call it ingrained trout farming. The only difference is perspective- You can flip toxic masculinity around and call toxic mascilinity ingrained over-fishing if you're an MRA type. The actual logical process behind it remains identical. By that I mean they are, essentially, valid conclusions to make, in a sociological respect. But what people fail to realise is how their own bias (in this case, which genitals they happen to have) affects their judgement.

Everyone is prone to double standards, it just makes you look like more of a dick when you claim to be a warrior of equality and fairness.

I don't think it is an internalised hatred of women or belief in the inferiority of women, or disapproving of a feminine trait and therefore the normal rhetoric isn't applicable. This person likes their feminine qualities they just want to be on top of the pile. The competitiveness is at a level where it over shadows everything else.

I was trying to think of if this is a quality that I've ever seen in men, and the closest I can think of from my only life is the way friends react to 'broody acoustic singer song writers'. Man fuck those insincere pricks

Men do this in a similar way, but of course by different means. In the end, it's all about attracting a suitable sexual mate, whether you're a man or a woman, and flashing your assets, physical or material, towards that end. Men buy expensive sporty cars or wear expensive suits or watches because financial wealth signalises personal success and therefore suitability as a mate. We want to be top of the pile as well.

Yeah, but you're not looking at it like a fisherperson. Just take everything you said, and add "Because of the salmon stock." and you've pretty much got the fisherfolk counter argument for everything. You're arguing the competitiveness is an inherent feminine train, but the counterargument is that it's only a feminine trait because a male dominated society made it that way.

It's more or less the equivalent of when you were arguing with somebody as a kid and you went "INFINITY PLUS ONE!" which means you automatically one-upped anything they could possibly come up with. Everything boils down to the salmon population, ergo the angler's argument is correct.

Our year 10 maths teacher once spent an entire hour explaining to us that infinity cannot be added to or subtracted from.

Had a mini reunion with some old uni mates, I'm way past the point of drinking to excess and purposefulyl drinking too much, staying out as late as possible and then feeling like shit the next day as if it couldn't have been seen coming. That's okay though, because I appreciate not everybody is like me and would rather have one or two then call it a night and wake up fresh in the morning.

They spent the whole night trying to police how much I was drinking and kept saying how it wasn't enough. I woke up feel much fresher than the both of them to which they still ploughed on complaining about how little I drank.

I like hanging out with them but I can't stand people taht spend the night worrying that you're not drinking the same amount as them and drinking for the sake fo drinking was definitely a uni thing, sad because it puts me off hanging out in future.

I hate reunions and make a point of not going to any. Went to my five-year school reunion and it was shit. After a quick meet and greet, all the same groups and cliques ended up sitting next to each other again like they did in school, and eyeing the other groups with a hint of the same subdued hostility as five years earlier in school.

I then didn't bother going to my ten-year reunion, but my older brother went to his, and he said it was just a dick waving contest where people incessantly bragged about their careers and incomes and the new houses and luxury cars they had just bought.

At the five-year reunion, many people were still in the final stages of various kinds of university degrees or other professional training. And the rest had more or less just about found their feet in the job world. So nobody really believed yet that they had bragging rights. But apparently somewhere between five and ten years out of school, success corrupts your soul and turns you into a dick waving arsehole who will tell others at a reunion everything they never cared to know about your job, your house, or your car.

I agree to some extent. You usually keep in touch with the people you care about, especially in our time of social networks, and the ones you don't care about, you probably don't really care to see again to begin with. I think it's really rare that you reconnect with somebody that you last talked to a decade and a half ago. At least through a school reunion.

And there are more important things than getting back at the class bully. He didn't care about you 15 or 20 years ago, so why should he care now that you've made something of yourself despite him sticking you in a wheelie bin every other week at school.

With testicles, it is generally all or nothing. Unless you mean some of them have an extra one knocking around somehow.

I think it is a natural product of our softer modern life and projecting that onto everything else and therefore thinking of animals as our friends rather then a potentially dangerous part of nature we are trying to control.

If there were still a risk of randomly encountering a wild cow herds where half of them are bull that decided to try gouge you if you got near, or packs of wild dogs roamed the woods suddenly you would feel your sense of security was more important then their right to have a pair of balls.

Two of them have the full set, when they were sold to me as castrated. You only really get to see at shearing time, unless you want to start a fight.

And yes, whipping balls off farm animals isn't a zero-thought action, but if you leave them on, often the animal's doomed, either because it doesn't taste good, or becomes unmanageable. If the boys would naturally leave the herd and live solo in the wilderness for a few years before coming back to start fights and get laid, that's difficult to offer in a farming environment, so off they come.

Dogs are different - I'm currently resisting pressure from the Mrs to get the dog done He's a lovely thing, and the only upside I can see is that he might, at some point in the future, find a lady dog irresistable. At the moment, he has no idea, just lives to play. Tempted to try the chemical castration route, as it's reversible, if it turns out not to be a good thing.

One reason why male cats are neutered is that otherwise they just won't make good house pets. They mark their territory with piss so that after some time, your whole house will smell like a lion's den, and as outdoor cats, they often stay out and roam the area for days without coming home. They see you as a place to crash whenever they get tired of it, not as a home where they are part of the family. Also, neutering them reduces their tendency to get into fights with other cats.

You do have to get up early though for that sort of work. I think the workday on a breakfast TV format starts at around 4-5 am. This should include the hosts, because in the end, they have to be on the ball just like everybody in the studio and will need time to prep the show.

It takes loads of discipline to do that for decades, and it should age you a bit prematurely.

My horse riding ex girlfriend once told me a tale about a lass at her riding club or stable or whatever it was. One of the older horses, poor lad had a cancerous tumour on his knob, and essentially the best thing the vets could do was whip off his entire tackle. This girl was visibly excited over it and said things like it'll be funny to see how confused he is afterwards, if he thinks he's been turned into a mare and so on.

All the other girls there just looked at her like she'd grown a third arm or something. So while they definitely exist, it's reassuring to know most normal birds think it's dead wierd too. I suppose it's much like any other bizarre fetish really.

I toyed around with CSS (cascading style sheets) tonight during what is my first attempt in over ten years of coding a web site layout.

Fucking amazing how far CSS has come. I just made an animated drop-down menu that fades in and out. May not seem very significant, but to be able to do that with just a handful of CSS instructions is just mind blowing. About ten to fifteen years ago, all this would have required some serious JavaScript coding.

As I said, this is my first web site project in over ten years. I used to do some web design and programming on the side as a younglad, but that was in them old days when web technologies like Flash were all the rage.

Yeah, well done on that lad for deconstructing one of the best films of the 80s.

The original one; not the two sequels. Part two was alright, even if we ended up living in a very different 2015, but part three really made you feel kind of sad that they apparently set out to milk the franchise for every last penny. Even though part 3 was filmed back-to-back with part 2 and therefore probably shared a lot of the production cost, I think it was not a very noteworthy commercial success at the time. At least Robert Zemeckis has stood by his promise of not making a part four.

Well-known fun fact: in an early version of the part 1 script, the time machine was a common kitchen refrigerator. It was then thought that it would give children watching the film bad ideas and that they would then end up trapped inside their family fridge.

I, personally, would have loved to see a plutonium powered 1.21 giggawatt fridge. Once global warming is fully happening, it kind of seems like an oddly reasonable idea.

I was asked by one of my neighbours today if I wanted to join the new whatsapp group that he was trying to start of all the tenants in this block of flats.

Why the fuck does everybody these days feel the need to start their own whatsapp group everytime four people get together and have something in common, however remotely. There's barely 15 to 20 people living in the entire building. And I'm in about five different whatsapp groups already that exist for no real earthly reason except for the fact that somebody at some point thought it was a good idea.

I don't particularly enjoy having much to do with my neighbours on a good day. Can't say I'm really on bad terms with anybody, some of them are even really quite sufferable people. I just value my anonymity when I am at home, with nobody really paying attention to what I am doing. Not sure what good it will really do me to be in a whatsapp group with the other tenants.

And during all of the years since I moved out from my parents', never once did I lock myself out. So it's a chance that's worth taking to me.

Just how it has always been though. Don't you remember your mam telling you not to go near certain houses?

"Proper nights out" tend to take a really depressing turn if you're not drinking. You get to watch a bunch of nice, interesting people turn into moronic arseholes over the course of an evening. We're really bad at pacing ourselves in this country - we drink in rounds and don't like seeing empty glasses, so we tend to follow the pace of the fastest drinker, so most people end up drinking far more than they really wanted to.

Maybe it's just because I'm a recovering pisshead, but I think a lot of our pub culture is driven by functioning alcoholics trying to justify their addiction by dragging everyone else along with them.

You're right.

There's the gaja, bit of MD now and again, ket is still going strong among the young 'uns it seems, everyone seems to take coke... Psychedellics are hard to come by but they blow a night drinking out of the water.

I'm being facetious of course but I feel like certain people have more of chip on their shoulder about drinking than they ought to. Sure when you're between the age of about 18-22 it's all anyone wants to do, but I find after that people calm down. I go months without a drink and don't even think about it, but neither do I feel the need to tell anyone "I've not had a drink in six weeks me!" as though it's some form of achievement. I haven't eaten broccoli in almost 15 years either, but it sounds ridiculous to boast about, and that's how I feel when people tell me how long they've gone without a drink.

I go out for a pint now and again as a social occasion, not to get pissed. That said, that's a nice side effect- The reason drinking is big in this country is as a social lubricant. Not much else has that effect when we come from quite a repressed society. Much like being a smoker is one of the fastest ways to make friends and learn who's who at a new job, being asked out to the pub is a universally relatable social environment within which even the most reclusive autists understand how to bond with people who would be otherwise near strangers.

This is definitely the worst part of British (and in my experience, eastern European) drinking culture. Sometimes I don't drink because I simply don't fancy it, but I know enough people with alcohol issues to find it genuinely quite horrific the way people will act when they realise you're on a night out but not drinking.

"Go on, have one! I bought you two, here you go! You have to drink them now!!"

"What's wrong with you? Have a pint mate!"

It's bad enough that despite being completely secure in my decisions and more than capable of defending them, it's just way, way fucking easier to drink a coke and pretend there's whisky in it. I've done this enough that many people think it's my drink of choice, when if I actually wanted to get some drinking done I'd go for straight spirits or wine.

I started doing it for work stuff when I realised I had the potential to be the boss who gets too drunk and ruins their managerial effectiveness, but it's worked well for me plenty of times.

Even "I'm driving" isn't enough of an excuse - they still think you're suspicious for not drinking the two pints you're 'allowed'.

I've long held that I'd much prefer a good couple of lines of charlie than a pint to unwind after a long day. I long for a world where it's more socially acceptable, and more morally sourced.

I got this for 50p in a charity and gave up on it two thirds through because of the way she makes her own stupid problems and expects you to feel sorry for her. What was interesting to me though (same with A Piece of Cake) was learning that people genuinely enjoy alcohol.

Maybe it's because I first tried ecstasy a few months after the first time I got drunk but alcohol seems like an extremely shit drug to me. It's 80% incoordination-grogginess-nausea and 20% kind-of-pleasant.

Different people suit different drugs I suppose. It baffles me that some people dislike ecstasy but cannabis just gives me anxiety and does literally nothing pleasant at all.

Exactly this, it depends a lot on your psychological make up I'd expect.

I used to smoke loads of weed. My mates were all stoners and it was just so easy to get hold of large quantities of ridiculously potent strains, so I just sort of did. However, it never really agreed with me- I'd always be the one sat quietly in a corner worrying if anyone found it strange that I hadn't spoken in over an hour. It still had some positive effects, and I suppose that's why I stayed at it, but eventually I realised it's frankly not worth it. I'd get anxiety churning in my gut right before I lit a joint but for some reason just do it anyway.

On the other hand, when I have a drink, I loosen up and stop worrying. I'm not a moronic drunk, and I can handle it well enough not to get to that stage, but I definitely look forward to a drink and the chance to have a laugh with some mates more than I ever did to sit in one of our living rooms in a circle watching Family Guy. God it was fucking shit when I think about it.

It was taking acid that made me realise I don't like weed and should stop smoking it. I've read about it having similar effects for alcoholics. Acid is fucking excellent and everyone should take it at least once.

I smoked skunk and the next day I smoked normal weed with my housemates. The skunk was obviously still in my system and sort of got reactivated. I suddenly thought my breath was bad and had an idea of the radius of my bad-breath-cloud. I thought as long as I didn't turn my head towards the girl next to me I would be fine. Then I had to turn my head away from her. Then I had to go and stand at the opposite side of the room. Then I had to go to my bedroom and was convinced my bad breath was seeping out under the door, along the hallway and into the kitchen and they could all still smell it. It was concerned it was going to cause me to suffocate to death in my room too.

I'm not saying I'm dead against the idea, but I don't think I'd do well as one of those "last of their kind" trope aliens who gets woken up long after the rest of my species is dead. They always seem to end up topping themselves or just crawling back into their space sarcophagus. I'm unsure if I have it in me to buck that trend.

Because it's one of the most massive music festivals in the world and has been a cornerstone of the British music scene for decades now. Unfortunately it's become gentrified, if that term can be properly applied to an event, beyond words and has struggled to adapt to a music scene that has more or less totally moved on from the rock music that Glastonbury built its brand upon.

Why'd you ask?

You can't really blame the BBC for that, and it's sort of what I meant when I addressed Glasonbury's "brand" at the end there. They were slow to realise that rock has all but died on it's arse, which is why a Gallagher brother is still popping up on their biggest stages in 2019, approximately 500 years since Oasis first released an album. Their smaller stages tend to have the better acts anyway. Getting back to the Beeb, it's sort of like if the FA Cup Final was Stoke City v Brighton, it's a crap match up but they can't change it and they've got the rights to show it so they want to bring in the numbers regardless.

The market for festivals in general has gentrified hugely over the last few years, I think. I hate it honestly.

Used to be when I was a younglad, festivals were acknowledged by all involved that you were going to get munted in a field for four or five days straight. You were going to smell terrible, almost certainly get the shits out of desperately eating burger van food, you didn't take anything you weren't willing to lose/destroy/have stolen.

But it's a lifestyle thing now, it's one of those things people put on their Tinder profile along with rock climbing. People honestly think they can go to a festival like it's a family friendly weekend out in the lakes. They act surprised when there are drink and drugs present, and it ruins their fun when they end up camped next to a bunch of scary moshers who won't turn their screamy music down.

If I go to a festival now and I'm wandering about fucked off my tits on a three day deep bender off dried mushrooms and absinthe I had mixed into Asda Red Bull, I don't feel safe in the knowledge that the people I encounter will understand and support my decisions, and in turn know how to look after me. I'll probably fall into a group of middle class uni housemates and terrify them, and end up having a bad trip. These cunts have ruined festival. Festivals aren't for people like them. They're out of place, like a Marxist at the Tory party conference.

Boils my piss it does.

I went to Glastonbury one time, and one of our mates got into some ecstasy or something, I don't remember what exactly, that the people in the tent next to us had and were sharing freely. Our friend was up all night and was outside his tent singing quite badly to somebody playing the guitar equally badly who was probably on the same drugs. At some point, I managed to fall asleep anyway, but they kept at it pretty much until about 9 am the next morning. By noon, we were growing increasingly worried for our friend, so we had a paramedic look him over and he was told to have a lie down in his tent for a few hours and drink plenty of fluid as he was also showing signs of dehydration. He missed some cracking bands, but the paramedics said he was running the risk of collapsing.

Set for Life is a waste of time for me personally. I play the lottery to win the jackpot, because no one person needs all that money. I could change so many lives and do so much social good with the millions I'd win. Whereas you have a similar chance of winning the Set for Life jackpot, but it's only a measly ten grand every month. No Henry Sugar-scale altruism, no opportunities for investment, no avoiding inflation.

I imagine they set up Set for Life because of all the jackpot winning idiots who have had their lives ruined.

I was reading about how loads of lotto winners over there go bankrupt because they take offers from these impossibly dodgy loan companies who give you your winnings faster than you'd normally have them doled out, but in the end you end up paying them some ridiculous amount out of it, and of course they always spaff it away before they can mange that.

Yeah but in the Lotto draw you can win £1m for 5 numbers + bonus with odds of 1 in 7.5m. An annual 5% return on that £1m after thirty years will be a fair bit more than £10k*12*30. Admittedly that compound 5% return is maybe unrealistic because it means not spending anything.

TIL there has been at least one occasion where playing Lotto had a positive EV.

You don't need to buy every ticket available, you just need to buy every combination of possible numbers. Which, when it used to be a quid a ticket, and in some places only used five numbers, was pretty viable. Most lotteries have upped their ball count and prices over the years however.

Gambling winnings and competition prizes are taxable in the US (but not in the UK), so it can be advantageous to take a regular payment rather than a lump sum.

Remember when Oprah Winfrey gave all her audience members a car? It turned out to be a bit of a pain in the arse for most of them because of the tax liability.

In Lotto, a five-draw rollover limit has been introduced to replace the previous jackpot cap. If the jackpot rolls over for five consecutive draws, a Must Be Won draw will then take place in the following game.

If nobody matches all six main numbers in the Must Be Won draw, a jackpot rolldown will occur. Rather than just being diverted to players in the next prize category where there is at least one winner, jackpot rolldowns see the money shared between winning ticket holders in multiple tiers. Everyone from the ‘Match 3’ tier to the ‘Match 5 + Bonus’ tier receives a larger payout than the fixed prizes normally on offer.

The five-draw rollover limit took effect in November 2018 to ensure the jackpot would be won more regularly, with the new rules marking the first time in National Lottery history that funds would roll down between multiple prize tiers if the jackpot was not won.

The introduction of a jackpot cap in 2015, along with the addition of ten more balls to the number matrix, meant that the top prize was won less regularly. However, it still took nine or ten rollovers before a Must Be Won draw would be needed. The cap stood at £22 million before it was replaced.

I think it would work much better in a special purpose arena. My thinking is rather than a simple half-pipe-like structure, it's a bowl that delivers a spiraling motion like those things you used to put pennies in when your mum took you shopping. This gives them multiple goes at getting a successful joust, meaning longer bouts and increased jeopardy. If the "think like a Tory" instruction is still in place we can also bring in corporate sponsors this way to, with regional arenas being christened with the names of industries that left said regions before Johnson's no-deal undermined the economy, democracy and basic rationality.

You'd be pushing your luck if you tried to avoid it without wasting time in the foyer with the non-stop reel of adverts and trailers playing. The best I've managed is buying a ticket around 15 minutes after booked screening time, at which point I just caught the end of the trailer package. I did once try to buy a ticket almost 20 minutes after booked, but when the guy on the counter couldn't get the system to issue it.

Thankfully the cinema I now use has a policy that the booked screening time is when the trailer package starts, and they backtime the ads from there.

What's the point of having a fruit flavoured lolly when you could just have fruit?

>Eat Mentos and you too will be forced to interact with strangers by an overly enthusiastic man-behind-a-curtain

It's unsettling to think of how many people would've had to sign off on such an awful advert for the British market.

Because fruit isn't refreshingly cold?

It is if you store it in the fridge.

Can I get a brief rundown of this disdained Mentos advert? Is it some kind of minty video nasty?

I like Solero, but I take a very serious issue with the idea that a choc ice "has no flavour". Chocolate and vanilla are flavours, they might not be your top choice, but nevertheless flavours they are.

My local charity shop sells paperbacks five for £1 so I've ended up buying a certain book by Vladimir Nabokov in order to bulk up the numbers. I do most of my reading during my lunch break; if I take it into work would everyone start thinking I was a proper wrong 'un? I mean, I can't even post the title of it on here because it gets blocked.

The trouble with vanilla is that it's ... what's the word?

Yes. You'll get funny looks for reading anything by Nabokov really.

Someone in one of the houses nearby has been in his garden telling off his kids for several hours.

Why? Two minutes with a belt is much less effort and much more effective.

Woke myself up with a fart this morning.

I thought that was just a joke people made, I had no idea it could actually happen.

Bolt-modded my Model M.

Christ, I liked it before, but now it's like typing on a very clicky, very haptic cloud.

the Numpad 5 only works if it's pressed hard. Haven't a clue why, but I really don't want to have to dissassemble the whole thing. Percussive maintenance hasn't seemed to work so far.

Well fuck me.
I've just found a dirty hack to sort my mic problem out. It's not a hardware problem apparently. Just the noise cancellation gimmick playing silly buggers.
I haven't applied it yet. The fact that the symptoms mentioned in that forum post almost exactly describe my situation means it'll prolly work.
