I'm usually not affected by deaths as I accept that's how the world works and I've always been a bit emotionally distant but just sometimes I'll hear about one that hits me. Strange feeling.

Back at uni, a lad from one of my study groups died in a motorbike accident just minutes after we said goodbye after a class. The theory was that he got distracted while overtaking a car on a dual carriageway on his way home and failed to notice that there was a temporary maintenance barrier in the outer lane which he tried to swerve back into, where they were cutting back some trees and bushes along the carriageway. He hit the barrier head-on and was killed instantly.
I can't say we were friends, he was in my study group, but we never went and did things together. It really stayed with me for a long time though and was one of the most eerie things that I ever witnessed. How often does it happen that you talk to somebody who is only ten minutes away from death, and until that moment has as little of an idea as everybody else around him of his immediately impending doom.

>a desire to slash tires
There's nothing wrong with acting constructively out of anger. Hell, at this point it's practically a good citizen's civic duty. My only advice would be to, if you can, avoid targeting someone who might dispose of the tyres through incineration, as that would be totally counterproductive.
|>>|| No. 430068
Make sure they're something like 20'' low-section tyres or some other exotic size that will be a nightmare to replace. People who drive cars with bog standard 195x55x16 wheels a) haven't got much money and therefore aren't worth your aggression, and b) those tyres can be replaced practically for a song.

It has made me very sad tonight thinking she has gone. I only met her a few times, and she stayed at my house once, I really liked her. She spoke plenty on here at different times. Others here saw her much more and will also be feeling her loss in some way.

I want to go to a massage place but I'm concerned that I'll accidentally go to one of the ones that is really just about selling you a handjob. It's not that I don't want to be wanked off on a folding table, it's more that I assume in those sorts of places you just won't get a very good massage, and that's my primary focus. If there's a place that'll do a proper sports massage and then wank me off then that'd be fine.

These ones don't taste too good neither in an espresso machine, nor in a moka, nor in a cezve.

Humans spend way too much time eating and shitting. Sometimes I think that's all my life really is, a cycle of putting things in one of my holes and shitting it out the other, and occasionally putting things in that hole too, or part of my body in a lady's holes. Everything in between is just filler, the real events of life are food and big dumps.
I keep having really big dumps recently, even when I feel like I haven't eaten much. I feel like my arse has loosened over the years, and even when it only feels like a few little nuggets I'll look down afterwards and see a log bigger than my cock. I have a dildo the same size as my cock and it hurts like fuck to try get that up my arse. But a massive turd slips out effortlessly.
yes this is a literal shitpost, from the shitter

Just pondering what I'll have to look forward to in the future, given the dire outlook of any meaningful action on climate change.
I wish green allied people and political parties weren't so stubbornly anti-nuclear. It's the only weapon we have right now that can maintain our society with low carbon energy, the other option being putting the brakes on capitalism and the endless consumption cycle. But that will never happen. ffs do we really need a new TV, phone, computer, car every few years? We've become hyper efficient at producing these things with a given amount of energy, but is producing these things the most efficient thing to do with our energy given the state of our society? (Fucking no it isn't).
|>>|| No. 430272
Just thinking about it the things I've bought in the past two decades haven't meaningfully improved my life. Go back 20 years to the dark and dingy times of 2001 where computers were slower and you had to phone or text people to keep up with communication trends, what a nightmare. Technilogy is great at facilitating the things that make life feel good - social interation, learning and exploration - but we reached a peak for that some time ago and have just been advancing into a weird hedonism since. The best times you can have are just old fashioned things spending time with other people and enjoying nature.

The car really matters (~8 to 25 tonnes of CO2) but the TV (~150kg CO2) or phone (~60kg CO2) isn't really a big deal in the scheme of things. A new laptop has about the same carbon footprint as a leg of lamb.
Your carbon footprint is dominated by heating, eating and transport; everything else is basically insignificant. We need systematic changes to those things, but we also need to take personal responsibility.

Sadly, synthetic or cultured meat isn't the answer if you want to have steak every other day:
>Cultured lab meat may make climate change worse
>Growing meat in the laboratory may do more damage to the climate in the long run than meat from cattle, say scientists.
>Researchers are looking for alternatives to traditional meat because farming animals is helping to drive up global temperatures.
>However, meat grown in the lab may make matters worse in some circumstances.
>Researchers say it depends on how the energy to make the lab meat is produced.
So in other words, unless your synthetic meat was grown with solar or wind power, it solves no problems and we may as well just keep having a leg of lamb regularly.

Second rate action flick when it first came out. No need to revisit that kind of plot or premise.

Since I really struggle to tell who's who in films unless they reliably wear the same clothes, Face/off was doubly shit for me. Hard to see how a re/make will add much (unless they do something cunning like break down speciesist barriers, grafting a rhino's face onto a giraffe, in which case I could probably follow the plot).

When I see ads asking me to become a sperm donor it makes me think about it for a few seconds. It wouldn't be too much of a weight on my mind to donate but, with the way the law works, I'd probably have some strange teenager come knocking on my door in 19 years. Imagine how many awkward conversation you could end up having to have.
I hope they give donors some information on their spunk. Something like "this is a nice healthy load you deposited" or "you just knocked up half of Kent!" That would be a nice text to receive on a Monday afternoon.
If Cage isn't in it then what's the point?

I am the child of a sperm donor. I was born before 2000, so I believe the way it works is different now, but I cannot find out who my daddy is. All I know is his height, year of birth, eye/hair colour, and how many other children he has fathered (16).

>Amendments to The Human Fertilisation & Act (HFE Act) were introduced from 1st April 2005. These amendments removed donor anonymity; this means that children born from sperm donation can access identifying information about their donor once they reach 18.
>Knowing about their genetic heritage helps people understand who they are. This is why we ask you to give information about your family and medical history and to write something about yourself that a donor-conceived person can read when they reach 18.
Apparently you have to "abstain" 3-5 days before every donation over 4-6 months. I imagine the clinic must get busy on a Friday afternoon.
|>>|| No. 430418
I think that's really a two-edged sword. On the one hand, it's understandable that a donor's child wants to know who they came from. But on the other hand, it can be quite disruptive, I would imagine. That child grew up with parents who couldn't conceive children of their own, but who for all intents snd purposes were that child's real parents. The sperm donor's role consisted of nothing more than letting them use his spunk. And against the child's right to know where they came from, you then have to weigh the donor's right to privacy, because the donor could reasonably expect that his active role would end the moment he'd rub one out into a receptacle.

Weekends are a no-go but equally you will probably want a weekday to see the Mrs to save things going stale. That leaves you with awkwardly having to do something from Tuesday night to Wednesday morning.

If you look nothing like your parents or any of your close relatives, wouldn't you become suspicious?
One of my female friends at uni didn't come from a donor, but she was the only child of her parents, and they had lived together childless for over ten years before she was conceived. She looked nothing like her dad, or anybody in her dad's family. They were all tall and dark haired, and she was a bit on the short side with reddish blond hair. To make matters worse, her mum was also somewhat taller and all of her relatives were dark haired as well. There were photos of her birth, according to which she realistically couldn't have been adopted, but her suspicion was that one of the people from her village at home, who apparently looked a lot like her, was her real dad. She told me it was a nagging thought whenever she looked at her (supposed) dad, and which prevented her from ever being very close to him.

Childofadonorlad here. I'll address the points made in more detail tomorrow, but an interesting point is that if people want you to look like your family, you will. As in, people are willing to ignore differencs and highlight similarities because they believe you are related. I had it happen to me several times as a wee'an.

I always assumed that I looked more like my mum and my brother looked more like my dad, which was quite commonly agreed upon by my immediate family. That was until my estranged cousin on my mother's side got in touch and she looks like my brother in a wig. I'm fairly certain my dad hasn't fucked his sister-in-law.
|>>|| No. 430476
I know that I came from my dad because although he died young, the older I get, the more I look like him. My mun keeps telling me I've even got a lot of his mannerisms, which I couldn't really have picked up from him when he was still alive. All of his old suits also fit me perfectly. Another indication is that an oil painting exists of my great-great-great-(?)granddad, and it, too, bears an undeniable resemblance to the way I look now in adulthood.
I look strikingly unlike anybody in my mum's family though. They were all pudgy looking peasants with puffy cheeks, while I inherited my dad's tall and slim frame and his oval face with the high cheekbones. So the question would actually be if I came from my mum, but there are about a dozen photographs from my birth that prove it.

Fair enough. I'm not even sure if I would want to meet the guy by this point.
Well, this has been a whole thing. My parents never explicitly told me I was the child of a donor, but I figured it out eventually. I am a bit of a spergic cunt with no idea how to act normally, and it was somewhat exaggerated during my teen years; it really shit my dad up that I went ahead and requested the info without consulting him, but I felt like it was my right to know. Family has never been even remotely important to me, but I feel it could be catastrophic in families with a strong bond.
As I said yesterday, you don't have to look that similar to look similar enough.
Genetics is a complex thing, though. I don't really think I look like anyone on my mum's side, but my grandfather died in 1985, and both my grandmother and grandfather's individual parents (I'm not sure how to word this without it sounding like they shared parents; they did not) died when they were young, so there are few, if any pictures of any of my direct male lineage.
