I've got rats living in the walls, the bloke from the council came round to poison them and now their rotting corpses are stinking the place up. FML.
|>>|| No. 435776
That's an absolute bastard mate. I had a mouse (or two?) die under the floorboards, it took a good month before the stink went away. Was right under my bed, too.
Moved on to spring traps immediately afterwards, fuck poison.

It's my birthday today.
I usually avoid celebrating it anyway, I do not like doing "a thing" centred around myself, but it feels different when I'm forced to not do it rather than choosing not to do it.
Anyway, I'm 31. I think I've been on this site since I was 18 or 19, just to make everyone else feel old too. Cheers lads.

Haply birthday ladm8. Here's to many beefy poz loads and plenty of arse pissings yet to come.
|>>|| No. 435780
I had this happen to me a few years ago. Next will come the flies and I don't mean a few of them.
Happy Birthday, lad. I'd probably be feeling the same in your position - take the day off and watch cartoons while eating children's cereal.

Someone's just suggested Microsoft Teams yogo or karaoke. I'm not making it through this, lads.
|>>|| No. 435804
On Thursday evening my office is having a quiz followed by board games over Teams. I'm new to the job and today the boss pressured me into saying that I'm going during a call with a few colleagues present.
Suggestions on how to get out of this would be greatly appreciated.

My OCD is playing up again and I'm totally distracted by the urge to blurt out "MUMMY SAYS MY CUMMY IS YUMMY IN HER TUMMY". Fuck my brain.

I see potential for another word filter.
|>>|| No. 435820
If someone or a group collectively sends a tenner in Bitcoin to 1KCQxCtpMsxhEsTYDyho5jTk9PFHZRwh7M I'll delete at least half the word filters. I don't particularly need the money; I just want to see some commitment. It'll happen anyway eventually, right around the time we have a new mobile view.
Make it quick or one of the pesky mods will screenshot the wordlist.
I honestly think I'd send the tenner if I was in your position, just for the laugh. You won't.
I can't be arsed to tripfrog and I'm obviously not purple.

I think some of the more niche ones have had their time and should go.

Oh, MRA is no longer a word filter? I seem to remember that it got filtered not long ago.
|>>|| No. 435826
Do you really think there isn't at least one undercover MRA on a team of internet moderators, even in this politically correct dictatorship?
|>>|| No. 435828
Good to know that that at least still gets filtered.
Nothing more pathetic than blaming others for your own unfuckedness. In its own way, it's even worse than all the MRAs having a cry on reddit every day about the latest shenanigans of the evil fisherperson mafia.

It's probably filtered because we were tired of hearing your signalled virtues even though we agree.
|>>|| No. 435831
I've done all I can to wake myself up, but I've just been on a total flatline all day, the kind of tired where you can't even manage to sit down and play computer games or check the news. Fortunately I had no work or else I might have curled up on the carpet and gone to sleep like a cat. I should probably have gone for a walk, but I couldn't bothered.

I've saved a copy of them but more as a piece of historical interest than to put them back. It'll be fun coming up with new ones.
|>>|| No. 435841
In particular WITH NOTHING TO SAY BECAUSE I AM A CUNT baffled doesn't even wordfilter to something that's funny or makes sense.

It made sense when everyone was saying this leaves me WITH NOTHING TO SAY BECAUSE I AM A CUNT

Was it ever really that big of a problem? It seems like a wordfilter is a bit of an overreaction.
|>>|| No. 435844
Mates I'm offering to delete most of the word filters for a nominal fee from the goodness of my generous heart. Do you want more word filters? Because complaining about the ones we have is how we collect more. I ain't nothing if not fair.
|>>|| No. 435846
Why did we never have a worldfilter for "maybe I'm a top lad"? That was probably the most annoying proto meme we've ever had.
|>>|| No. 435849
>Do you want more word filters?
If they're genuinely hilarious jokes, then there's nothing wrong with word filters. But some of them, like fruit and veg, although still really funny, don't seem to have a strong relation to the word that gets filtered.
Maybe retire some of the more niche and "left-field" ones, and replace them with something more clever.
How many word filters are there in total then?
|>>|| No. 435852
About 143 but maybe 30 can be accounted for by the same filter for words with variable spelling.
|>>|| No. 435854
It's a small site so any forced meme/genuinely hilarious joke gets old fast if you're a sadact who visits every fifteen minutes like I do. So a quick way to kill a joke that shows up every other post and is starting to get tedious, is to wordfilter it. Of course once you set one you usually forget about it as people start to wind down their usage of the original word, and then you forget to ever remove the filter, and over time the word is used infrequently enough that it doesn't seem worth removing. Out of sight, out of mind.
I have removed some filters in the last few months that I didn't think were needed and were ruining the place more than the original word, and I reckon the fruit and veg filter is less amusing than the original joke now so maybe that needs to go, but at the same time, fruit and veg is definitely sewn into the fabric of the site, culturally.
It's a delicate balance and nobody will ever be fully happy. I've certainly set filters and they've been removed by another mod within hours, presumably because it wasn't nearly as funny as I'd thought it was. So it goes.

On that note, when did the whole fisheries nomenclature start? Was there a problem with people bashing fishing on .gs?
|>>|| No. 435860
Like racialism, it was just talked about so fucking frequently that I think they got sick of hearing it. I reckon the fishing stuff has been in place before I was ever a mod, so a Very Long Time.
|>>|| No. 435866
I like to think most of us internalise the wordfilters, and they become a kind of meta-meme on their own where you can tell when someone has written a post with the wordfilter in mind.
That one about climbing trees the other day caught me off guard mind you. Sage for metapostery.
|>>|| No. 435867
It was originally an arbitrary word substitution that I then tried to see if we could have actual conversations about the fishing industry that made sense, while not meaning to.

Only four of the nine cucumber plants in my second batch have germinated. It's been at least 20 days, double what they should take.
What do you think, forget about them and plant something else in the un-germinated pots or give them longer?
|>>|| No. 435889
Seeds normally germinate quickly when the conditions are right, especially your average vegetables. I think cucurbitaceae like cucumbers do take a slight bit longer than nightshades like tomatoes, but not extremely so. If they don't come up after a week, then that seed is a dud.

Almost free bananas.jpg
He's right, lads. There's barely a taste to them. Not worth £1.75; i suspect you're paying for the bright design on the packaging (either that or the 3 freezedried peas in the top). The one plus side is they make your secretions take on that deep MSG kind of smell (and taste, i assume) - not great under the armpits but i imagine it would make eating out your partner a right treat.
Oh, and it turns out they're Nissin, too. I wonder what's going on there?
I also managed to pickup 12 bananas for 34p. Silver linings and all that!

It'll have some EXIF or whatever in it from the camera that states how the image should be rotated. It's the thumbnailer that's getting it wrong (but in this instance it looks right by accident).
|>>|| No. 435912
You're paying for the name. Any nerd worth their (now reduced-sodium) salt has seen Cup Noodles in anime and manga or other weeb shit.
Digging around, Tesco and Sainsburys both say that they're "made in Hungry" which I assume means Hungary, in which case we can only hope that Herr Orban tastes one soon and puts those responsible into the correct chamber.

Re-potted the sixteen largest chillies. Their root balls were sodden which isn't ideal so I'll leave off watering them in their new pots for a bit.
Annoyingly, the labels for five of them have bleached in the sun so I have no idea what they are. I have six left that are hardly growing; two scorpions and four also unlabelled. Not sure if I should sacrifice them to make space for some other plants or not yet.
|>>|| No. 435927
Those look really nice. Mine look a bit more delicate with smaller leaves, but I guess it's down to different cultivars. My Etna Piccante plants already look greatly different from the "standard" chillies I've grown from shop bought seeds.
