Great! I built a new coldframe to put my agave in. I need to add another level to it in order to fit them all, potted up in, but I've reclaimed almost enough second-hand glass to do that with. How's yours?

Seriously I bought all this sim racing shit and I can't use it without getting really drowsy. I think it's sopite syndrome, fuck.

Forgive me, but doesn't this apply only to actual motion? I know that you can't simulate vection in a static sim cockpit, but I suppose that is a very specific thing.

I get the same thing on trains and buses, real ones. Less so in cars, but I don't actually drive because I'm a manchild. I remember falling asleep while riding a bike as a child too. I put the public transport down to being tired at the end of the day, but I get the feeling that my eyelids are getting heavier and heavier when I'm racing or watching footage in the first person. They can test for it virtually apprently so I think games could induce it. Regular motion sickness can affect people while they play games well.
Maybe it's all BS, but I was trying to drive at about noon today and after forty minutes I was ready for bed. I'm hoping it's an inner ear thing, because that's been an issue for some time, but I only thought about it in the sense of it being a minor irritation, not turning me into a hypnosis victim. If pharmacies are open on Sundays I'll buy some industrial strength ear wax dissolver and go from there.
I know this sounds silly, but it's like I've got an IV drip full of lager when I (pretend to) drive. Heaven for some, but I'd like a say in the matter.

I've asked my Dad want he wants for his birthday and all he wants is a bar of Dairy Milk. I can't just get him that but he's so difficult to buy for.

I thought everyone gets this to an extent. This is most worrying as like you I'm also a manchild who was planning on learning before covid hit.
At least you've got something that'll stop you ever having insomnia again. Some people would pay good money for that kind of tool - and if it stops working due to tolerance then problem solved.
Get him one of those gift boxes with foreign/retro sweets. Always a bit of a ripoff but he'll get some novelty out of it.

I reckon I could still end up accidentally eating one of them in one-sitting. You' know when you just have a nibble and then the next minute you're feeling very sorry indeed.

I was having a strangely enjoyable dream about cheating on my ex but then the person I cheated with turning out to be shit in bed, then sharing a nice intimate moment with her afterwards where I realised how lucky I was.
Postman woke me up with a parcel for my real girlfriend, and I have a craving for jammy dodgers now.

Obviously I've not watched this, and yeah, yeah, he's probably a millionaire and he has steak for dinner every night and he eats it off the nude body of his solid gold girlfriend who has diamonds for tits, but is my gut reaction that a lad who looks like a grown man doing this is embarrassing bullshit or not? Is this actually somehow much worse than Dick 'n' Dom in da Bungalow? Or, again, am I just being a miserable, old, twenty-something and even having an opinion on what is clearly kids entertainment marks me out as an irredeemable shit?

No that's fair enough - his money came at the cost of his dignity and self-respect much like a whore. Youtube should never have allowed people to make a living off producing content and it's our moral duty at this point to show the next generation how to use adblockers and SponserBlock.
For the love of God get off this website. Don't make the mistake we did.

Is it illegal to make threats, in the abstract? Like, can I threaten a policeman that if I don't get what I want, I'm going to stand on one leg for thirty seconds? Hypothetically speaking him not using his discretion to ignore me for being a waste of time but if he was feeling vindictive, could I be lawfully arrested for it?
|>>|| No. 443563
Anyone can find anything "threatening", that can't be illegal in itself. Actively making threats though?
|>>|| No. 443564
No, you will even get off if there's no reason to suspect a threat of immediate harm and there's frequently cited precedent for this. So if you said "I'd kill you if it wasn't illegal" it wouldn't count. I'm sure they could still find reason to detain you for being a knobhead though.
I'd add that I fucking hated studying Criminal Law and this was many years ago so I wouldn't go out and actually do it.
|>>|| No. 443565
No I wasn't really planning to but that does remind me that I was wondering a while ago if it would be illegal to go around with banners that say "Introduce capital punishment for Priti Patel". It's not a threat to do anything illegal, in fact it's paraphrasing her with a personalised twist.
|>>|| No. 443568
Honestly I'm of the opinion that politicians should be an exception to the normal rules, and fair game for anyone.
In fact I think we should make a bit of a tradition of it. We could get kids in school to pick a politician and write them a death threat once a year, to get them engaged; like the book fair or sports day.
|>>|| No. 443569
If you've posted that opinion here before in the past couple of weeks, then I saw it and the more I think about it, the more I agree. I'm sure it's only all fun and games till some deranged maniac goes and stabs Jo Cox, but the threat of such a thing makes a good release valve which can really help our public servants to understand what their electorate want from them.
|>>|| No. 443571
I figure you'd be fine. So long as you're not actively harassing her and her family anyway. It's just a bit BRILLIANT like how "kill the bill" has a double meaning.
Sounds cuntish. I'm not saying that politicians haven't been babies lately when it comes to abuse but I don't think it makes for a healthy society either.
If you don't care that a politician has to spend all day reading peoples' anger management issues then you should consider that they also have staff who need to spend all day reading it again and again. It might feel good to say but that's usually the sign that you shouldn't have said it.

I'm just going to come out and say it.
Priti Patel is a fucking coconut.
There's a difference between BAME folk adapting to a white supremacist system and proudly embracing it.

Labour lost one last time, so it's only fair the next one is a Tory. The only problem is that there are so many deserving cunts in that party that it's hard to choose just one.
|>>|| No. 443574
Yeah. I'm not fundamentally aiming to get her executed, even if it can be made legal. Realistic or no. It's just to make the point back at her that what she's angled for can be pointed right back at her, in a fair system.
|>>|| No. 443575
You don't have to be white to be a supremacist. You just have to be one of the rich cunts sitting on enough power and privilege that its mechanisms don't affect you.
|>>|| No. 443577
It always tickles me when idiots expect all non-white people to think and act within certain parameters, usually without realising how racist they're being.

I'm not sure "coconut" is the right term. It depends on whether she actually believes what she's saying, but I'm far more inclined to think that she's just another shrewd political opportunist who is good at playing the game.
It's inevitable that stuff like this happens in our system -- finding the right brown person to enact policies and say things that would be unacceptable coming from other people is a very predictable party tactic. Patel has very likely placed herself to become that person throughout her career, because ambitious people want to rise through the ranks. It's a perverse system of incentives to serve the powerful and punish dissenters.
I worry it'll still be true even if we attempt to pay attention to class again, because class can also be a part of identity politics. In the future I predict the politicians who are rewarded will be the ones who say, "I grew up on a council estate and I can assure you they're all scum and deserve to be shot", because it's okay when it comes from the right person.

Loads of British Indian people are natural Thatcherites. Their families really did start a successful business from nothing and they don't see why everyone else can't. As a demographic their household income and share of wealth is well above average. Shamanismophobia is rife in the British Indian community for somewhat understandable historical reasons, which is often veiled in a more socially-acceptable "we need the right sort of immigration and immigrants need to integrate" sort of rhetoric.
Priti Patel genuinely represents the views of a large proportion of British Indians. British laplanderstanis and Bangladeshis overwhelmingly vote Labour, but a lot of people on the left seem unable to tell them apart.
With that said, Patel is clearly a bit psychopathic - before politics, she did PR for British American Tobacco.

>Their families really did start a successful business from nothing
Not really, many of them were upper caste poshos by Indian standards. Coming to Britain that still puts you on the lower end of the scale, but it's not like they had nothing. That and it's easy to run a profitable shop when you don't follow any of the rules and you're using your twelve kids for unpaid labour.
But that's just like you say. Natural Thatcherites.
|>>|| No. 443587
You're right, I was being naive. Of course this tactic is occurring now and has probably already been done in the past.
|>>|| No. 443588
I would be interested to know in data whether the Indians who make a good living in the UK did so by accumulation of generational wealth, or whether they came here with a good amount of money, and to what degree established networks plays into it. But then, I'm >>/£$€¥/8631 lad and I seem to have a bloody hard time finding quantitative research on this stuff.

I might have a lass coming over this evening but I really need to clean my flat beforehand. When I was a teenager the place would already be gleaming but now that I'm in my early 30s with a full-time job more than ever I'd really rather sit in my own filth playing computer games at the weekend.

It's raining. I've just got a drain rod stuck, probably irretrievably and the drain's still not flowing. My hands smell, I'm cold and wet, and not entirely happy.

That's so grimly fascinating. I secretly kind of like doing work like this, albeit on a far smaller and less dangerous scale. Everything is just so clean afterwards.

I went for a walk along the canal this morning. There was a man, I guess he was in his mid-forties, who had what I can only describe as techno-panpipe music blasting out of his rucksack.

The successful canal push requires darkness and either fast moving water or an inebriated victim. I had none of these.
Probably better but still awful.

I need to get a tablet for work and I think I need to reign in what I'm looking to buy. At the minute I've got my eye on an iPad Pro for £600 from Costsco; as I'm self-employed I should be able to knock off at least 20% when I put it through my expenses. It's mainly going to be used for running a few apps and presentations during client meetings so all I really need is something that will have a decent screen, run smoothly and have quite a lot of longevity but now I've got it into my head if I spend a little more I'll be able to run things like Football Manager Touch to keep me entertained whilst I'm sat in my car in the middle of nowhere between meetings.

That's a surprisingly good price - I've seen all the Apple stuff in Costco obvs, but didn't know they actually discounted them.

I'd say go for it. I'm definitely more of an android person but I've yet to find an android tablet as nicely built as an iPad. Personally I'd also look at a Surface of some description but I think that's just because a windows device would play better with my existing work stuff. At that Costco price you can't go wrong.

The new iPad Pro launches later this month so you can get some older stock reduced. Currys and Amazon had the same model for about the same price but both sold out.

Who of you keeps crisps in the cupboard? I'm partial to Hot Dorritos, which I eat with chopsticks, but they're terribly greasy.
I am currently struck with nostalgia for Golden Wonder.
Holy shit I forgot about Tomato Sauce flavour.

I'm far too much of a crisp fiend/greedy fat cunt to keep crisps in the cupboard. If I buy a multipack it's to eat all of them in a day or two while sat on my sofa watching worthless youtube videos about rebuilding engines I don't own.

Why don't you just buy a work laptop? You can even get one with a touch-screen or one of those ones where you can close it and use at as a heavier tablet because it has a screen on the back.
I used to have them in the beforetime because I'd usually make myself a packed lunch. People in the office probably laughed at me but I saved money and making sandwiches is cheap and easy so it reminded me a lot of your mum.
Anyway my favourite are Kettle lightly salted. I don't do 'owt weird with them other than occasionally scratch my mouth because they're like eating glass.

Today I have been to feed the ducks and there were a few little ducklings about. Then I went to the charity shop and I picked up Peter Crouch's bulk to bulk out what I'm getting my dad for his birthday. On the way home I went to Farmfoods and they had Linda McCartney mince for 99p so I bought shitloads of it.
I ruddy love ducklings.

>The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) said it was fine to feed small amounts of bread to ducks but people should also feed them sweetcorn, porridge oats, peas and bird seed.
>Swan Support, which rescues swans, ducks and geese, said many were starving because people had stopped feeding them bread in recent years. They blamed a campaign called Ban the Bread, which was started by a company selling bird food.
>"They wanted people to buy their food and that's where it all started," said Wendy Hermon from Swan Support. "We were picking them up dying everywhere."
>She said flocks of birds had become established in certain areas because of people feeding them and they had become reliant on this food supply. "It's absolutely fine to feed bread. Bread has been fed to swans, ducks and geese for hundreds of years," she said. However, she said people should only throw in as much as the birds ate, so there was no excess bread left behind to decay.

Went for a long trek this afternoon. Was going alright until we got piss wet through on the way back to the train station, and subsequently spent about the next two hours freezing and miserable. Didn't even get to have a pint because the walk was a lot longer than expected, and that was the whole point of going on the train instead of just driving.

I'm positive this time last year I'd spent weeks just sitting in the sun in the garden, doing what wfh I could but mostly enjoying the sunshine and watching the plants getting bigger. This year, whenever it stops pissing down for more than an hour I just find slugs have eaten more and more of my seedlings.
