I had a lot of peppers on my pizza last night and my guts are a wreck this morning.

This is possibly my least favourite thing about the human body, out of a long list of other complaints. I really like peppers, they're one of the very few fruits/vegetables I actively like, rather than just tolerating them because I know I have to. But every time I eat any appreciable quantity of them I'm doubled over with stomach cramps. It's not even the spicy kind, I'd understand if it was a big pile of habalenos or japadeneros or whatever, but it's just your normal every day bell peppers.

What's the deal, does anyone know why this happens and if I can do anything about it?

I've intentionally shoplifted for the first time in about 18 years. It was just a small ~£10 electronics item but I knew the security barriers at my local supermarket don't work so I was able to simply walk out with it in my trolley. I don't think I'll do it again, I didn't get a cheap thrill out of it or anything.

If that's the only fruit you ever eat, perhaps you are not aware that all fruit has the power to make you shit quite amazingly. Fruit-eaters might not notice, but I have occasionally eaten a big load of peppers, like you say you've done, and I certainly shat more purposefully afterwards. But it was quite a minor thing; if you're genuinely unwell then you might have something else going on.

It was my local Lidl and I did use the proper checkouts, although the self serve ones were a lot busier. It was easy enough to hide it in my trolley and then bury it under the shopping as it came through.

Thinking about it, when I go to proper supermarkets I regularly underweigh fruit and veg on the scales.

I really do have a thing for fat girls now. I dated, briefly, a chubster, and now on a night out I find myself checking out girls bellys in their tight dresses.

I feel disgusted at this sexual development, but also excited at the size, scale, breadth of opportunities.

Lads, what's a good "opener" on hinge/bumble/tinder etc when they don't have much in their profile and their pics are reasonably generic?

The girl is quite cute and we've matched, she has lots of outdoorsy stuff and a cool looking dog in her pics. Her "answers" to the prompt questions (it's on hinge) are just about having friends and a dog. I feel like I used to be quite good at the dating app chat having spent so much of my life online but the past 2 years has turned my brain to jelly and I struggle for witty and amusing openings.

Speaking of ten years ago, since when did everyone start harpooning? I've noticed what seems to be a growing trend of stomach-shaggery here lately. Did everyone just lower their standards or is it a genuine preference that you'd have over, say, someone you had a reasonable chance of lifting without crippling yourself?

I knobbed a chubster this weekend, should have got her to do this. I knew it would be a difficult night when I met her though, she turned out to be a proper munter in terms of facial features (women are honestly fucking scam artists with those filters nowadays) and I'm not sure if even this kind of sordid filth could compensate for it. In the end I just got blackout drunk and gave her a half-hearted knobbing in the morning.

Overall though yeah, you should have no trouble talking one into being whatever kind of cowgirl you want. Chubby lasses are usually pretty filthy, but even despite that I've always been able to get lasses to indulge my kinks when they actually like me. That's really the key to it- If they're genuinely into you, almost anything you want to do gets them going.

It's the intersection between a silly dress-up game and something altogether more visceral. A hucow is docile and submissive but also nurturing and nourishing, which creates a unique two-way exchange of power. It's a celebration of all that is dirty and sweaty and milky.

Honestly it's as much about them as it is you, if they've actually got interesting things about themselves to work with, it's not too hard to bring one of them up and engage in a bit of bantz over. So this...

>Her "answers" to the prompt questions (it's on hinge) are just about having friends and a dog.

... Wouldn't give me much hope honestly. Usually I'm not optimistic about that sort of girl. It's always like pulling teeth, even if you get to catch their attention with the opener. They're just the sort of girls who haven't realised dating apps by their very nature require a bit of effort from both sides, not just the bloke wooing them.

I don't wish to be too pessimistic, just be prepared to work a bit to get a conversation going I suppose.

I for one have always liked a big lass; but all your third tit talk is just offensive. There's liking fat girls, then there's wrong 'uns like you who are attracted to nothing less than the signifiers of cardiac disease and diabetic foot ulcers waiting to happen.

It's all about a nice big arse is the honest truth. They don't even need two normal tits, never mind a third, as long as they've got a big juicy arse to bury my face in.

I attribute it to the influence of classic rock staples like "Fat Bottom Girls" and "Whole Lotta Rosie". If it was good enough for the hedonistic stage stars of the swinging 70s, it's good enough for me.

You're very much correct and tbh usually I'd not even bother if they can't be arsed to show a sliver of personality, but she looks like my type (not a great big fatty for the record) so I'm tempted to make the effort. Plus I've not got my end away in a while out of laziness and apathy

Will probably just use my tried and tested technique of getting a bit pissed and messaging drunken nonsense to see if they bite.

I have always preferred squishier ladies. I like soft faces, so that means lots of fat women, and that's the main reason. However, I don't think I should overlook the slightly /emo/ fact that culturally, fat women are meant to be unattractive, and because I spend so much of my life single and lonely, I am confident that I could form a better emotional connection with a woman nobody fancies. What would I say to Beyonce? What do we have in common? Absolutely fuck all. But when I emerge from my cave, caked in my own shit and with insects crawling all over me, I'm sure the way society treats me will be similar to how they treat the sea monster in the lake. So that's something we have in common right away.

Actually fat is always too far for me, but I do have a weakness for a bit of chub. I just don't really like a girl who's all skin and bones to be fair, they have to be shapely.

The prime and top tier is when you get that slightly curvy figure- just a bit of muffin top, I mean- on our favourite archetype, the council estate goth girl. They're always the dirtiest slags, guaranteed. Might be a bit on the thick side in conversation, but they make up for it in sheer enthusiasm when you get them in bed.

Thinking about it that's probably just my biggest weakness, out of anything. Enthusiasm. I don't need them to be into every kink under the sun, but so many lasses have this negative attitude about sex, as though it's a chore, as if you're at Crufts and you have to do the assault course perfectly before you're allowed five minutes in the slippery hot dog tunnel.

I have no time or inclination for that, when a girl wants to get me off and isn't shy about it, that's the best; and I will return it in kind.

I'd be a really shit rapist to be fair, I can't even get it up unless they're visibly and audibly enjoying it. Just looking at their boobs isn't enough to get my chap interested I'm afraid.

I might be naive but I think a lot of men are the same way, especially once you're beyond the randy teenage years. That's why I've never bought the whole "declining salmon populations" thing- I get what they're saying, but it just doesn't hold up next to my experience.

declining salmon populations it is. I think "declining salmon populations" does exist to an extent, but I'm not sure that "declining salmon populations" was the most apt phrase for it.

You've only got to look at how women are treated in places like Egypt, India and Rotherham Latin America to see the pervasive effects of cultural attitudes towards women. My girlfriend used to be a teaching assistant and she said a lot of Asian lads were brought up to view women as inferior. You can certainly change attitudes so that women are respected and not seen as pieces of meat, but the whole "teach men not to rape" thing is entirely spurious. With the best will in the world, there will always be rapists because some people are fucked in the head regardless.

I do wonder if online dating is making attitudes towards women worse. You've only got to look at some of the recent posts on here to see that the way lasses are viewed is gradually being dehumanised.

'Enthusiastic consent' is puritanical American, sex-negative bollocks, driven by the kind of people who are weird enough to get into bed with someone they don't trust not to rape them, and don't feel comfortable saying 'no' to.

People with a healthy attitude towards sex don't need to give enthusiastic consent because they don't see it as a weapon or a massive, huge, super significant thing. It's just a bit of joint, or group, exercise, that may be used for bonding too.

Granted this may be a bit of a hot take, and I need to refine my opinions here because I sound like a rapist. But I couldn't get a stiffy for someone who wasn't at least trying to turn me on, so in practice I know I'm alreet. And you lads are generally a good sounding board, so what do the more measured among you think?

Now just for my personal edification: if it's not 'toxic masculinity', is it 'declining salmon populations'? I'm guessing it is, in which case without the context clues I would never have guessed it. In which case, dolphin rape/dolphin rape takes on another meaning, does it not?

/r/baddragon seems to have an inordinate amount of trans posters recently. I don't want to see a surgically designed fanny and weird tits due to improper tagging. At least the cis lads actually mark their posts 'M' but the transgingers seem to think they're above this.

I just want to see women getting knotted.

Photos maybe, although the only photo source I use is Imagefap. In terms of videos, however, the amateur stuff has all gone because it was all controlled by Mindgeek and they just decided to shut down amateur content basically overnight. XTube has gone completely, when it used to be the best one. The best time for wanking was absolutely a couple of years ago. Fuck Mindgeek.

I didn't use PornHub for a few years and it felt clearly noticeable that the range and quality of the videos on offer had dipped markedly. I don't have any particular niche tastes in porn, but it takes me a lot longer to find a video I'm happy to bash one out to unless I opt for the old reliable Ava Dalush in the gym with the lead piping.

I once found an image on Google as a younglad when just searching letters of the alphabet in a moment of boredom/procrastination, which then became one of my go-to "get me going" pictures for a few years. I did commit to memory the names of the two pornstars in the photo, but I've long since forgotten them, and it obviously isn't in the first ten results for the letter D any more. The image itself wasn't depicting anything spectacular, just a topless blonde woman breathing on another topless blonde woman's neck from behind, but the fucking quality of the image is what kept me going back - while most of the internet was low-res gash at that time, this picture was so sharp and had been touched up so perfectly that I felt like I could reach in and touch the smooth tit.

If I were a better person, it would have inspired an early interest in photography and I would be an adult with a healthy hobby. Alas, I just wanked my life away.

As far as I know there's only a couple of big names like Jay Naylor and Adam Wan still doing it from those days. Artists like those are seemingly stuck in a time warp, it's quite fascinating actually. Over the course of a decade, the quality and style hasn't changed much; and while it has probed into more adventurous fetishes, it's all still relatively conservative by furry standards, as though they wait for something to start getting relatively trendy on "real" porn sites before they'll consider drawing it.

It's definitely the furry porn for vanilla straight blokes, but I really don't know how that sort of audience stumbles onto it.

That also annoys the piss out of me, because I've still got plenty of analog audio equipment that I like to connect my smartphone to, e.g. my home stereo system but also my car radio (older-model Audi Navigation Plus) which has Bluetooth connectivity for the phone function but still needs a 3.5mm AUX connection if you want to play your smartphone music on it.

The reason why they are phasing out 3.5mm isn't just to save 25p on the connector socket itself, but also because of design simplicity, which in itself further reduces production cost per unit. Also, customers today expect tight waterproofing, and a 3.5mm hole in your phone is going to be a point of entry for water that is difficult to design around and which can always fail at some point. Even putting a USB connector at the bottom of the phone is taking a risk in that respect. It could be that many smartphones won't have any physical interface points at all in the future, with wireless charging becoming more standard. There probably also won't be SD card slots anymore, because it will again be cheaper to just increase internal memory, and SIM cards are also starting to get phased out in favour of built-in eSIM. So your phone is essentially going to become a hermetically fused-together black box, which also means you'll be screwed if it breaks and you cannot retrieve your photos or other personal data. This is already an issue with cheaper laptop PCs with eMMC instead of a removable SSD.

USB hubs definitely work, which is handy for power passthrough. Keyboards, mice and USB MIDI keyboards all work fine. Haven't tried a webcam, because the reason I use my phone in the first place is for the quality of the front-facing camera. I believe that any class-compliant camera should work, but app support may be patchy. I do know that some people use HDMI capture devices to use their phone or tablet as a video monitor.

They're not all that bad nowadays. In fact some of them come close enough that I'm getting a bit paranoid whenever I see a lass with a strong jaw line on a dating app. I'm talking to one right now and she's not unattractive, but she's definitely too good to be true for a real woman. She must be hiding a cock, but I just can't quite tell, and I fear it'll be terribly awkward if I get her in bed before I find out.

I mean, I'm not even trying to be transphobic, I kind of like her but I'm not sure how I'd feel if it turns out she has a willy; like with that type of tranno it's always a tiny little floppy one isn't it, not even a good proper cock that I could ask her to rail me with.

The trans movement in general seems to egregiously believe that merely transitioning suddenly means people should be attracted to you; when the truth is that regardless of their gender, the vast majority of people are still going to be ugly cunts.

I'm pretty sure there's no small number of trans people whose dysphoria is ultimately rooted in not being attractive enough as their biological sex. They dive into the world of amateur porn seeking validation that their transition has successfully remedied that, often encouraged by their peers, and I'm quite sure a lot of them are ultimately left extremely dejected by the whole experience.

It's all quite a sad affair honestly. If I were to put my chips on the table, I'd blame the last 70 years of the marketing and fashion etc industry bombarding people with unrealistic standards of beauty.

I've always found it a bit grotesque, and I'm furrylad.

I think I just dislike how regular non-furry perverts got hold of it honestly though, and obviously they focussed straight on the most vulgar aspects like the three foot long tree trunk horse dicks, gaping themselves open so wide you could fit your head up. Makes me roll my eyes, you know.

It's fairly simple lad, if you find yourself in such a situation you slide your winky into her bumhole.

I don't know if it's just that I like to dominate in the bedroom but I think I'd have more trouble if she had an anaconda like whopper, like any true son of Rome I see topping as completely straight but that's just daft when your cock is smaller. A sissy with a big dick feels wrong and you know full well with all the dieting and toned abs they will bigger and harder than you.

Nonsense, a gentlemen of refined taste likes a big dicked bottom, there's something altogether more masculine and ego nourishing about it when they've got the bigger donger than you, but you're still in charge.

Or, as the case may be, you've got the bigger donger than them, but they still claim you like a stallion mounts a mare and have your superior length nutting without as much as a stroke. I've got a pretty big chap so I hope to one day be in this position.

Today I've been inside an Argos for the first time in years. It felt quite eerie because of how bare it was. There was a few banks of desks with touchscreens on, but that was about it really. No catalogues, nothing on display apart from a wall with gift vouchers; even the jewellery and watches section had been replaced with banners about ordering online. It was just... empty. I can see why they're phasing out their older stores and replacing them with a counter inside Sainsbury's instead, but it really gave the impression of a dying business.

In other news, I've been to Burger King and tried their vegan royale. It was quite nice, especially with a few onion rings added to it. The drinks machine only had the zero sugar versions, so I made the mistake of trying orange flavour Coke Zero.

I think Argos needs to just make their customer area much smaller, just bring the warehouse wall almost right up to the front doors, a bit like a Screwfix. So they can fix more shit in their warehouse, while you just order for click and collect, and are in and out in 3 minutes. You don't need a catalogue chained to a table anymore.

I'm trying to find an adequate offline, desktop-centered web page editing software that lets me design a handful of static HTML web sites where I have full control and editability over my code and which still gives me out of the box HTML5 functionality and a few drag and drop gadgets like sliding galleries,animation or grid layouts. I then want to tie those static pages together with some custom PHP background code.

Mobirise only seems to enable you to edit ready-made templates, Bootstrap Studio is too rigid and restrictive against inserting your own custom code if you want to do anything besides editing or creating Bootstrap-based templates, and nicepage appears to be riddled with programming bugs.

Adobe DreamWeaver looks interesting, but I'm hesitant to commit to a subscription, even if it can be cancelled monthly. I'd rather pay a one-off licence fee and be done with it. Pinegrow is around 100 quid a year on a recurring subscription plan, which is pushing it in terms of what I am willing to spend on this little project.

The likes of Wix or Squarespace, or even wordpress just aren't what I really have in mind. Anything that's too standard and won't let me add and manipulate my own custom code in a meaningful way without messing the whole thing up just won't do. I also don't care for the code bloat that tends to come with these solutions.

Any suggestions?

WYSIWYG was always a bad idea, but it's definitively dead because of phones. IMO the best option is to use a static site generator or headless CMS based on the Jamstack principles. You get fast, clean code with a minimum of complexity.

Most WISYWIG editors have different device previews though so you can design for phones or tablets right out of your desktop application.

I think what sort of killed old-school web design is that you don't need to be able to code anymore nowadays. You can bosh together an entire site with dozens of pages without having a clue how to create an HTML header or define a charset or a CSS class. And it shows. Even web sites by web design agencies today can be a five-minute wordpress job, with quite anticlimactic results. Esoecially if you then run a site like that through something like PageSpeed Insights.

Granted, you simply cannot hand code in any reasonable amount of time all the features nowadays that a lot of web sites are just expected to have both by by their owners and their audiences. Maybe it's just the snobism of having created web sites at code level for 20 years, but it kind of boils my piss when younguns these days think they're web design gurus just because they show you how to throw some elements together via drag and drop in a youtube tutorial.

Nothing I am about to say is useful to you at all, but I really hate all WordPress tutorials I have ever seen, for a roughly similar reason. I don't design websites but I do web hosting as part of my job, and it would be very useful indeed to know all the differences between the files WordPress gives you, like wp -config.php and .htaccess and index.php and so on. But any attempt to find any online resources for learning this sort of thing consists of nothing except, "Here's how to add a text box. Click on Add Text Box!" It's staggeringly unhelpful.

As much as wordpress and others democratised the Internet, they also idiotised it. It's almost a bit like when Windows 95 for the first time addressed the complete computer noob as part of its intended core audience. I guess it's still a godsend for anything from starving-artist bloggers to low-level self-employed business owners or your mum's knitting circle, because they can't afford to just spend 1500 quid (or any amount of silly money if you are feeling frivolous) to have a bespoke web site done by a professional web designer. I'm just saying that technology in the hands of idiots rarely leads to good things. And in the case of wordpress, it's not even particularly good technology, it's bloated and littered with unnecessary external links and requests and it wastes oodles of bandwidth. Which is then compounded by the idiots who completely cram up their web site with equally code-bloated plugins and other gratuitous gadgets.

It's called an undertray. It's held on with clips or screws, depending on your make and model. You should be able to get a replacement set for about a fiver on eBay. Clips are usually just a press-fit, but you'll need either a torx or socket driver if it uses screws. If the undertray is badly cracked, you're looking at about £40-£50 for a replacement. The most likely issue you'll face is getting under the car. It's doable without axle stands if you're skinny or there's a lot of ground clearance, but don't even think about getting under a car that's just held up by a jack.

I think that for celebrities like that, it's really up to them how famous they remain. If he kept doing stuff, he'd be as famous as Cheryl Baker or Rolf Harris, but otherwise, he'd be gone like dust in the wind, like the Bay City Rollers. If he did absolutely nothing for years, I'm sure he could walk straight back into I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here, but Strictly Come Dancing probably wouldn't be a good fit for him.

Is that really likely though. Gary Glitter fucked up so badly, he could single-handedly end both the current corona and Ukraine crises, and people would still say yes, but he shagged a bunch of 12 year olds that one time in Cambodia.

In today's #metoo climate, one transgression decades ago is enough to end your career once and for all to the point where you will be lucky to land any job at all.

Look at people like Kevin Spacey. He forced himself on an underage teenlad one time at a drug fuelled party in the 80s, and as morally and legally wrong as that was, he will probably never meaningfully work in the industry again. Not condoning his behaviour, at all, but even monsters are somehow going to have to work for their living. If you look at his most recent movie work since the allegations surfaced in 2018, he barely did a handful of projects, while he had been in high demand for over 20 years up until that point.

I'm fortunate that I don't know anyone around my age that died during childhood, although when I was at college some lass in my form/general studies class passed away after she got in a car with some boy racers and it wrapped around a tree.

For curiosities sake, I've just checked what the three thickos in my class when I was eight are up to now about 26 years on:

Thicko #1 looks like the maid from DuckTales. He's spent most of the past 10 years working in one of those godawful Fuzzy Eds pubs but now has an entry level council job. He also spends a lot of time liking posts from the popular kids at secondary school, despite not being part of that social circle.

Thicko #2 looks like a shaved monkey. He works at Kwik Fit and posts a lot of pictures of his fifth generation Vauxhall Astra.

Thicko #3 moved to that London and works as a chartered surveyor. Seems to be doing well for himself.

Tried doing it for the thickest lass, but all I could make out was that she's a teen mum going from one relationship to the next and she posts extremely filtered pictures of herself online.

I'm reasonably confident that applies to 90% of the birds I was at school with, and I'm reasonably sure I could write a list of the ones it doesn't apply to just off the top of my head.

I actually daren't look at the thickos from my school days though, thinking about it gives me the fear a bit. There were some proper pond life there, beyond working class, beyond even the underclass, those kids who it's a miracle survived to school age because their brains clearly marinated in Super Tennant's for the first 9 months of their existence.

I fucking hated school. Never wanted to have any connection to it ever again once I'd fucked off and moved on. In fact I never wanted to even have facebook, but a particularly pushy mate (who I am no longer mates with) set one up FOR me, the prick.

Like you say, most lasses I went to school with are in dead end admin jobs with no real prospects. The ones who seem to be doing well are the ones who went into teaching or the NHS. Must be a shit life, shuffling paperwork all day and having little else to do other than popping out kids.

I don't know, I think it's a bit both ways for lasses. Either they get a shit life with zero prospects or they have it easier than they deserve, where as long as they start on the right foot opportunities just seem to fall in their lap. For lads it's squarely between the two and you have to really work for something if you want it, but you're less likely to end up a total waster.

But in general this is why all the talk of male privilege and gender politics in general is a bit of a shitshow to me, the reality is it's just way more complex and nuanced than those kinds of generalisations ever boil it down to, so it's pointless to even try blanket it either way. But people can't help themselves.

The statistics don't really seem to bear this out. During your 20s, which I'd argue is a pretty critical decade in setting yourself up for adulthood, women on average earn more than men: https://www.theguardian.com/money/2015/aug/29/women-in-20s-earn-more-men-same-age-study-finds. I think some studies put the "tipping point" at which men start to earn more than women at around 35.

There's probably more recent figures, but in 2017, 86% of "rough sleepers" were men as recorded by the (then called) Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: https://www.homeless.org.uk/sites/default/files/site-attachments/Homeless%20Link%20-%20analysis%20of%20rough%20sleeping%20statistics%20for%20England%202017.pdf

Not arguing women don't face any systemic disadvantage, just that (on average) we seem to prioritise the physical safety and prosperity of women when it comes to housing and money. Obviously, this depends on how you'd define a shit life, but lads also do seem more prone to being boxed into a certain variety of shit life, if you consider young deaths (including car accidents, suicides, violent deaths).

That being said, I agree with your sentiment that people assume too much and judge individuals based on very broad and sometimes nebulous notions of privilege. It's more or less an ecological fallacy -- Dutch people are tall, but that doesn't mean every Dutch person is tall, and you certainly don't grow a few inches just by moving to the Netherlands. I'd still argue that research, done in good faith, can sometimes help make circumstances fairer for everyone.

My mum came into some farm land decades ago when my grandad passed, and my parents had no use for it because we're not farmers, so they were looking to sell it and invest the money elsewhere. Being that we used to spend many summer holidays in Italy back then, at some point we befriended some locals in a village in the Tuscan hills who mentioned that there was a villa for sale in the area. So we went and had a look at it. I remember it being in kind of a sorry state. It was a three-story, something like four-bedroom 19th century country house, with a neglected olive orchard about half the size of a football pitch, and I seem to remember that it would have been around £50K. If that house still exists and somebody took good care of it, I'm sure it's going for silly money nowadays, by comparison.

I guess my point is, don't expect to get a bargain on a house there that's in tip-top condition. Italians tend to exaggerate, as many Southern Europeans do. Slabs of stucco crumbling off an exterior wall or a death-trap worn out wooden staircase will be sold to you as "character", and not as the major renovation job that it is.

I was talking with my friend recently as he and his fellow eskimos regularly cook meals to give out to the homeless in Leeds and Bradford. He's been doing it for years and said he's never met a homeless eskimo person on the streets, they're almost exclusively white even given the demographics of where they're helping out. He thinks Britain has lost its way and is far less humanist and community spirited than laplanderstan is.

Our inuit cousins certainly have a much better idea of looking after their family than we do. It's not uncommon for three and even four generations to live in one household for them. And, without wanting to tread onto thin ice, I'd wager it has just a bit to do with how their family structures tend to be more rigidly patriarchal. I mean, you don't often get eskimo women divorcing their husband and taking the house and the kids, do you, they're not allowed.

I don't think it's that Britain has "lost it's way", though. We haven't changed all that much in this regard for perhaps the last century- Anglophone Western culture has always had the idea of kicking our young out to start earning their own way, in the old days it was that a bloke would go live in a boarding house 'til he found a wife, while you'd marry your daughter off to someone as soon as she was old enough. Whereas now it's just that we send them off to university and expect them to grow up while they're there. It's only really very recently due to the economic conditions of the last decade that parents have started to accept the idea of stay-at-home adult kids.

I think the welfare cuts of the Camebourne era have a lot to answer for as well. As a society we had become used to the post-war consensus of unemployment support and council houses, and in the typical fashion people began to take them for granted, without realising the system had been cut to the bone while they weren't looking. I even remember when I was a younglad my parents suggested I put myself on the register to try get a house, and I spat out my brew I laughed so forcefully. They just had no idea, they thought you could just walk up to the housing office and say you wanted a house.

So of course, people are still much less charitable, because they still have it stuck in their heads that you can get eleventy grand in benefits and a free house, so what excuse do these homeless have.

Massively so. The impact of cuts has been huge, but it's really hard to pin to one thing because they've affected nearly every aspect of government. It's harder for homeless people to get housing, but the services that stop people from becoming homeless have been cut to the bone too - social services, addiction and mental health treatment, debt advice and of course the corrosive effects of Universal Credit.

IIRC, there was a poll on the sub where the overwhelming response was not to do any media interviews because of how they would most likely be in bad faith. Fox News contacts the mods and they decide that freak should be the representative of the sub because they're the most media savvy.

Going off on a tangent, but I reckon it's freaks like that which make people not like transfolk. I don't think most people have anything against "proper" transfolk, but they get weirded out by the oddballs who are essentially neckbeards in a dress.

There's definitely an element of truth to that. Partially it's trying to run before they can walk- Society in general was broadly only just beginning to warm to the idea of a "traditional" transexual. Hayley Cropper on Corrie. But that had barely even begun to sink in before these lot were on it with their new pronouns and their non-binary genderqueer two-spirit weirdness where you don't even know what the fuck you're dealing with.

But it's not only that, I think it triggers an instant mistrust in most people. I think most people hear that sort of thing, and if they're a basic common sense type of person, it immediately rings that alarm bell you get when you're getting talked into a scam. I'm not saying non-binary folk are all lying- But their whole shtick just immediately puts people on suspicion that they're bullshitting, and so there's no way they (or any movement they represent) can be taken seriously.

Just a heads up, lads. If you ever have daughters there will be times when, well, you don't feel like a sex pest but you will be hyper aware that you're sat watching a stage performance featuring a bunch of lasses in their mid-teens wearing lycra. Particularly when that performance involves them singing "I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts" whilst they've got their hands on their chests.

It's all I've been able to do lately to not be completely manic about some health issues I've been having. I am utterly unused to being unwell for any real length of time and, obviously, I don't enjoy it. So, with quite the opposite being true in recent times, my completely lack of a need to shit has unsettled me in its own way. This must be how Napoleon felt after capturing Moscow, wondering if the Tsar would finally come to terms. I hope the winter's kinder to me than it was to the Emperor.

The sub was basically seeing open revolt over the course of the afternoon, with tons of posts essentially saying "who let this clown 'tard on the news, now we all look stupid."

So does the person in question admit that they have failed their community and quietly slip back into anonymity, or are they going to kick and scream and bring the community down in their bid to retain control? This is, after all, the head mod of the sub, you might not have realised.

So... Yeah. It's a tale as old as rudgewick.

The thing is it was obviously going to go this way. That person founded the sub, but is clearly a midwit with minimal knowledge of political theory of any stripe, nor much relation to the struggle of organised labour. They could never have forseen their little subrudgewick becoming the culturally significant force it has been over the last several months. But naturally, once it does become that, they're going to want to take some credit, aren't they.

Alas. One day we'll get lucky, and something like this will happen, only the leader will be a bloke called Daz, who drinks Carling and supports Man City, who they can't possibly make look like a freak no matter how hard they try.

I don't mean to get too /boo/, but was antiwork some sort of honeypot to begin with?

That one useful idiot is, I believe, the founder of the sub. I think it's more a case of them being hopelessly out of depth since things really started taking off and being so out of touch with the real world they couldn't foresee what would happen during the interview; it was pretty much a dream come true for Fox.

I think it's way more likely that the type of person who creates a subrudgwicksteamshow.co.uk for anything is likely going to be a fucking weirdo. I don't know how antiwork grew as a sub, but there's basically two ways - a post going viral which drives engagement, and the creator of the sub being a superuser who posts fucking constantly and saturates /r/all with posts over time. The former is luck, the latter is applied autism.

I wouldn't be particularly surprised if you were right, either, I just think I wouldn't bet against the likelihood of a subrudgwicksteamshow.co.uk mod being absolutely tapped.

I'm going to be contrarian and wager that the subrudgwicksteamshow.co.uk will get a boost out of this unless their mod team shatters, and maybe even then.
People worry a lot about the impression made, but don't factor in the advantage of having made an impression at all. If you hear "Here's something you might be interested in, their representative made themselves look cringe on TV" you're not going to go "oh, well, if it's cringe...", especially when you're the average modern Twitter user with a cringe profile picture beside your cringe bio for the account where you post nothing but cringe. Conversely, if you're instinctively opposed to "antiwork" then it wouldn't matter if they made a good impression. You'd just find something to nitpick anyway.

People still mostly approach these things as though we live in the television age, as though this is someone's big moment on TV for the world to see - even though they probably caught far more eyeballs with their posts than they did on television-proper. People remember when TV was the arbiter of truth, they haven't quite on to the fact that everyone else has also hopped online and that truth is now decided on Twitter, where next week's big event is already scheduled to begin.

You're definitely right. And most people who would even be prepared to be nudged over to an antiwork philosophy are undoubtedly young enough to not be that shocked or scandalised by an internet weirdo being the creator, as they understand both that half their friends are internet weirdos, and also that once a sub gets big enough, the mod team is basically superfluous in terms of direction of the discourse.

It's not just about the TV interview either. That could easily have been overcome, but the moderators' decision to label so many people with fairly worded criticism as trolls and permaban them will be their undoing. It's been pointed out their actions are reminiscent of the sorts of toxic workplaces that would get featured there. Also remember that antiwork's rise has been meteoric and therefore any loyalty to it that might exist has had little time to become entrenched.

They have a hope of limping on if the greaseball founder abdicates and the rest pin the blame on them, but /r/workreform has a great shot at overtaking it regardless.

This place has always had a superiority complex when it comes to 4chan. I can't remember the last time something that had happened over there was talked about here, unless Chris Chan counts, that wasn't puerile bollocks.

The impression I get with rudgwicksteamshow.co.uk is that quite a few posters here also post there and they don't actually like it much, but there's a lack of alternatives if you want something a bit faster paced.

We're going to put my paranoid demented grandad in a home finally. He has been deteriorating, to the point where he doesn't recognise people he has only known for a few years anymore. He still knows who we are as his family, as well as his oldest friends that he has known for 40 or 50 years, but doctors have told us it's a degenerative process that won't get better or reverse course. Doctors told us it will become "increasingly unfeasible" to have my grandad living by himself in his house. Even with carers as well as relatives looking after him several times a day.

His latest thing has been that he's absolutely convinced that his neighbours are plotting to kill him. He even called police on one of them and told the cops to search their house because it would be full of handguns and other weapons. Which caused some unpleasantness, but my grandad is known to authorities by now, so in the end, they knew how to take him. But police told us they still have to come out and investigate at least superficially when they get a phone call that somebody has illegal guns in their possession. Even if the person calling them and making that claim is certified crazy. I guess at least technically or in theory, just because you've lost your marbles, doesn't mean you can't be a witness to illegal activity.

For those of you keeping up on the antiwork Rudgwick drama, the plot has, incredibly, thickened even further.

The much more sensibly named "workreform" appeared to be becoming the refugee sub members were fleeing to in order to start afresh. People wanted to build a more robust sub that wouldn't be so easily discredited by having freak loser mods and a daft premise. It boomed to over 500k subscribers over the last couple of day's events.

Overnight the rudgwicksteamshow.co.uk admits have directly forced the owner of that sub to step down and installed their own mods in the sub. Four of them are trannos. At least one of them comes from a well known intersectional "anarchist" sub.

You can tell me there's no conspiracy here and the left eats itself voluntarily but this is just blatant.

What do you mean "using what power"? Subrudgwicks aren't privately owned, the admins can do whatever they please if they see reason to. The site overall has no principle of free speech, they only maintain the pretence of democratisedcommunities because that's basically their business model. Their private interests are no different from the likes of Facebook et al at the end of the day.

They typically step in and intervene with a sub under the pretence you're not doing enough to address problematic content; in this case the justification was probably trainsphobia, with the sub being marked from birth by its status as a refugee sub. It was inevitable something like this would happen, but what's unusual is that they would do it so overtly.

I don't think you understand, the worry here isn't trans panic. It's how easily the situation can be manipulated to paint a couple of million people as transphobic, when the issue is that they've been misrepresented in a politically important media appearance by someone without the authority to do so. It doesn't seem fair that the backlash, much of it quite level-headed and warranted, is being dismissed as trolling and bigotry.

The admins installing several new mods for whom this tactic for deflecting criticism could also be used is beyond cynical.

Not sure what that has to do with anything m8.

It's more a comment that people misunderstand what Rudgwick is; people think you can be "in charge" of your own little community, and that's your personal kingdom with nobody but you calling the shots. That's not the reality, it's still centralised, and the admins will intervene if a community is starting to look like it might cause trouble.

4chan doesn't have a lot of free speech to go around nowadays anyway, the blue boards are pretty heavily moderated. You can say naughty words as much as you like but outside of the containment boards, there's not a lot of tolerance for deviating from the thread topic.

One of the real problems with the internet is that it gives freaks and weirdos a sense of legitimacy.

Take your local nutter who stands on a street corner shouting about the Bible and how almost everyone is going to hell. It's quite easy to ignore them in real life. On the internet he can quite easily find an audience of like minded people and become emboldened.

Most of the time when this spills back out into real life it has no real effect, like when Are Nige mustered about 300 people for his March for Brexit about three years ago, but the left has a real problem with pointing out when the Emperor has no clothes on within their ranks.

The bigger problem for the left is that by the very nature of the ideology, it attracts people looking for excuses to externalise the blame for their personal failings.

When you're the camp who constantly points out systemic, structural issues that affect people's lives, there's really very little you can do to stop bad faith actors from twisting it all to be about their own pet injustices, like having to do their own dishes or how having to shower at least every other day is ableist. The only recourse you have is to point these people out and shame them, disown them, you can't just tolerate a bunch of narcissists in your movement. But then what else are you doing other than turning on "your own"?

It's a big catch 22 for the left, but it's older than the internet. Even George Orwell was on about it in the 30s (ironically, while enjoying his own little gap year poverty tour).

I let the bloke across the road rent my driveway to store his builders equipment on. He's a little bit dodgy, bit of a geezer, at least not very good at moving his stuff when he's said he would, or disappearing for a week or two when he's promised to pay the next day, that sort of thing. Not a big deal. Early last week I found someone, presumably him, had put some sort of machine in my garden, one wheel removed I'm guessing to make it harder to nick. I left it there all week but moved it onto the driveway yesterday. I'm not against doing favours for the neighbour but I'm not keen on setting a precedent of letting him take liberties either. The landlord tells me he's tried to buy that whole bit of land before, he's clearly got his eye on it.
I checked to see if he was in before I moved it, so I could ask him to, but he wasn't. Could have left him a note, he could have left me one when he put it there.
I'm not being unreasonable am I?

For me it's coffee and cigarettes. Nicotine suppresses your appetite, and a bit of milk and sugar in the coffee gives your body just enough of a meagre level of nutrition that staves off starvation.

I'm putting on a bit of a gut nowadays, I'm generally eating much bigger portions than I used to, but for years I was a skeletal motherfucker and I could basically go the whole day without eating. Never bothered with breakfast, have something piddly like a pot noodle for lunch, if that, and not eat properly until I got home from work.

To be fair I don't even know where the nearest Tesco that actually has any of those is. I always feel like Tesco isn't really a supermarket any more, it's just colonised every small local shop with Tesco Expresses and probably makes more that way.

We've got a "real" Tesco in the town centre but it's weird, even that only feels like Big Tesco Express, not a proper supermarket. I think the only one that has them around here is the Mega Tesco in Batley.

My girlfriend isn't very sexual in the way I am and I think if it's not changed after a few years it probably never will. I am a kind of sex lots all the time kind of guy, she's not.

I've raised this with her several times and each time she's had a near-meltdown level reaction to me. She always has a reason why rather than just saying she's just not that kind of person (and that's fine) and takes it as a personal sleight on her. She's beautiful and outside of that great for me, but I just feel this is too important to ignore.


She seems to think having very formulaic sex once or twice a week is incredible for a couple living together and thinks I'll never find anybody who wants anything beyond that if I do go. I'm not sure it's true, I've had girlfriends who actually seemed to enjoy sex in the past.

Pretty deep thoughts for a Tuesday night, but feel like this could be massive grass is greener syndrome but not sure what to do as it keeps cropping up in my thoughts.

It's difficult to suggest anything more since you've already spoken to her about it.

Without wanting to sound accusatory, do you think it's worth taking a step back and thinking about how you're bringing it up with her? Is it possible that you're doing so in a way that's catalysing the upset?

It's mad that you bring this up now, as I just Sunday evening had a discussion with the missus about the same feelings, and referenced "guys online" going through similar things. As it turned out, our lass divulged that she had already spoken at length with her therapist about worries that she's "tricked me" into our relationship by presenting herself as more sexual in the early days, which is a complaint I see here often. The take-home from our discussion was that we're both going to talk about sex more, and that it might naturally promote more action.

She has accused me of this yes and I've done a lot of thinking about that very thing, but the first time I raised it - 'I feel slightly frustrated because I'm not sure we are on the same page sexually' - over dinner she literally stormed out and threatened to dump me after a massive cry which was not how I expected it to go. She said something about only wanting to give oral sex for example when things are nice (implication being as a reward) and when I 'deserved it'. To me I do things like give oral because I genuinely enjoy them and find the act arousing, even if they are a lot of effort with little direct reward to me. This was a massive red flag to me.

Each other time she's just not reacted very well, until this last time when I said that I think it's something I am worried about being more frustrated about when we are more entwined and she cried again, but then said it's just because of the way I approach it and various other excuses (such as 'you think I'm an English rose but I'm not') but she touches me like my parts are radioactive and it's the first time she's seen a man naked and says she will never initiate because it's not what she does. She did seem to take it a bit better this time and imply she was happy to try new things, I just need to raise it and ask to try.

I think it's a common thing that you mention. Exactly what I have experienced with her. Made out she was a highly sexualised, sexually charged being, but she just isn't. Not sure why she did it because it's one of those things that are going to get found out sooner than later and I'm not going to want to stop having sex. She just isn't that kind of person yet gets absolutely indignant at the suggestion she's not.

I don't think it helps that the girl I was with before her was an incredibly sexual person who enjoyed giving oral sex and trying new things and didn't see it like some sort of treat or special occasion. It's really hard to go back once you've been with somebody who will randomly put your parts in their mouth whilst you're getting changed in the morning and think nothing of it.

Anyway yes recently I suggested that I think it's hitting the line for me and she got upset about it and seemed to come round that she will try more stuff. I think I've hit my limit, just not accepted it yet. I don't want her to reluctantly come round, I just want her to want to do it, because seeing her happy and satisfied is part of the happiness and satisfaction for me. If that's not her, I don't want her to have to change herself.

Do you have any genuine expectation your situation might change? What are your plans if not?

I'm starting to worry life is too short to spend it frustrated and I need to take tough choices, even if they are, in the short term, unclear and difficult.

As a sex-maniac, I'll tell you now that if she's not giving you enough then she never will and you need to ask yourself what the bar should be on that. If it's bad now then what do you think it's going to be like when you have kids? I'm not outright saying bin her but I reckon most blokes are doomed and should be asking themselves just how little they can do with. If twice a week isn't enough then the relationship needs to be snufffed for the sake of both of you because you'll either become a man getting shit for wanking in the attic (that you spend 40 hours a week paying for) or you'll start getting it elsewhere.

Anyway, of course she's hurt, imagine if you were told that you can't satisfy your woman. If she cares about you then this'll be a source of guilt for her. She might roll her eyes with a "men" but you have needs that you're not going to want to spend your life begging for. You might have to informally agree that you need to put some effort in to get it but it's not going to work if you're needs aren't met.

I don't know about the formulaic part - that's for you to decide and a different matter actually. But I think that frequency is about normal for long term couples. I've been with my partner for more than twenty years, and we still really like/fancy each other and most say we have good relationship - after that long, a couple of times per week is doing well. I'm happy.

I've just come out of a relationship where I was in exactly the same position mate. I know it's incredibly frustrating and difficult to deal with because you feel really shallow breaking up with someone essentially, over sex; but if you're not compatible on a fundamental level I have to say, I don't think any amount of effort can actually fix it. It's the one situation where that old adage of "nothing in a relationship comes easily, give it some more time and effort!" is actually terrible advice and you're wasting your time.

I even made several posts in emo about it over the last year or so, lamenting the fact that every time I tried to meet her in the middle or ask her what I can do differently or better, it would go nowhere. She was simply never willing to put the same amount of effort in from her side, so no amount of effort from me would achieve anything. It takes two after all, not one person trying their best and then one person who lies there like a real doll just to let you get it over with.

Honestly she was shite, she just didn't care. I took way too long to end it frankly, because looking at it, sex wasn't the only area of our relationship where she was unwilling to pull her share of the weight. I suspect the same may well be true for yours if you step back and look at it.

It's a sign of being a good person that you search yourself for the answers and shoulder the burden of the problem as if it's your own fault, but quite honestly lad, this is more than likely one of those where you can comfortably say it's her, not you. You do deserve someone who makes you happy in all aspects of life, don't think you have to put up with this out of some kind of sense of manly honour or duty. And certainly don't listen to the bitter sexless lads here who will inevitably crop up to say it's you who's to blame for not turning her on enough- If you're trying your best and she's not willing to do the same then you really don't have much recourse.

Just imagine if this were a post in Rudgwick or a letter to one of those gossip rags where a woman complained about her boyfriend being shit in bed. She's tried everything to spice up but he only ever giver her a half arse few pumps until he nuts and then rolls over and goes to sleep. What do you think people would tell her? Exactly. So don't put yourself through the wringers over this m9.

Oh, and a personal nite that I thought I should have probably added while I was in the shower.

Being in a sexless (or very near it) relationship for so long has kind of damaged my own sexual confidence, and that's part of the reason it's very hard not to be resentful over it. Now I never claimed to be God's gift to women before this, but I was reasonably sure I was a good partner, able to satisfy them. Throughout the early phases of this relationship my natural instinct was to assume I'm just doing something wrong, that it's me who's nit living up to her expectations, all that kind of thing; I tried to approach it like it was my responsibility to unlock whatever it is she needs to enjoy it more. As it turns out that wasn't the case, but it did a lot of damage to my self esteem and I do worry I'll have trouble with future women because of it. I can't remember what it was like to have my casual, easy, light hearted approach to sex any more because by the end every interaction was fraught with hesitancy, reluctance, and ultimately disappointment. I feel like it's going to be hard for me to break those mental associations honestly.

So yeah that might be just me, but don't let it go that way for you lad.

This makes me feel a lot better for having broken up with that girl who turned out to be asexual.

I know this is probably half-joking, but let's face it, masturbation isn't the same as sex with your partner. Even if you don't take into account factors like personal preference, sex is an intimate thing that can deepen emotional bonds in a relationship. Seems a bit unfair to ask one partner to accept less of that intimacy than they're happy with.

On that note, I wonder if otherlad would feel differently if his once-or-twice-a-week session were really passionate and satisfying?

It sounds like his lass isn't only falling short of his needs in terms of occasionally opening the release valve, but also the effort and interest that goes into the sex when it does happen.

Quality always trumps quantity for me. I don't think any of us here are still stuck in that juvenile phase of life where getting it away as often as we can matters; but what it does need to be is fulfilling. Emotionally as well as physically.

I think any reasonable person can settle for twice a week as long as it's actually good when it happens. The problem starts when you realise that functionally, you might as well just be tugging one out, purely and mechanically emptying the semen out of your glands.

Weird take to be honest lad. There's a reason they call it "making love". If she doesn't put effort into love-making, it's going to put doubts in your mind about how much she loves you, more than vice versa.

There's only so much you can stand loving someone who, ultimately, doesn't reciprocate; be it physically or emotionally. It's a draining experience that will only leave you utterly miserable.

Nobody said they are, but if you have to compromise (and there comes a point in most relationships where you do) I think any sensible person would pick two good shags a week over ten boring ones.

I suppose for some people the mere act of putting their willy in a wet hole is enough to scratch the itch, but ehh. I've been having sex for at least fifteen years now, the act itself isn't anything inherently exciting, any more than having a shower or making toast. I'm always mentally comparing sex to crisps- I'm not bothered about cheese and onion Walkers these days (although they do have their place, like when you're working away eating a meal deal in the car), it's got to be those McCoy's tortilla things or Pekingese Spare Rib Sensations to get me going.

It has to do with narcissism and overinflated entitlement. If you feel the world just owes you attention, including women, then you expect them to come to you, because you're such an amazing catch. Having to go out and pay a lass to have sex with you then doesn't fit into that equation. Because again, women owe you attention.

It's part of why Elliot Rodger went berserk.

Also though, as an aging virgin, you tend to be pretty clueless about sex and how to get somebody in the sack with you. A lot of times, there's a reason why some teenlads have sex at 16 or 17, while others still struggle in their early 20s to pop their cherry. Either you're just very hung up about sex in general, or you're just not emotionally and socially intelligent. And you over-romanticise and overthink your first time and develop unreasonably high standards about it. Where it doesn't occur to you that it's simply a rite of passage for 90 percent of people, and ends up being pretty disappointing no matter the circumstances. And just getting it over with by paying a proz just goes against all those high standards at that point.

I had a mate at uni who was a virgin until almost age 25. He was a bit on the sperg spectrum, but also, his idea of a romantic partner was somebody with picture-perfect model looks, to the point where he would refuse to talk to lasses at parties who weighed literally three to four pounds too much for his liking. He eventually came to his senses and ended up with quite the homely wallflower type for a girlfriend, but it was tough going up to the realisation that you cannot reasonably expect to get with some Cheryl Cole or Rachel Riley lookalike when you're a 20something sexually frustrated virgin.

>If you feel the world just owes you attention, including women
That's a very big "if", devised by someone who is just guessing. I encounter lots of posts on the you-know-how-many-chan from people who would be happy with anyone. I myself post here as well, so of course I'm not afraid of the larger woman, but many of the ones I know are married. I honestly only know a handful of single women, many of whom I cannot approach for various reasons, so who do I chat up? I just live a largely woman-free life, and I see this in a lot of other people who are sad and lonely too. I guess I could try certain acts of serious desperation, like getting a hobby, but none of my happily-married friends ever had to do that; they just went about their lives and someone found them. And everyone, from perfectly okay people to mass shooters, are really just frustrated that nobody has found them. I can assure you that in my all-male workplace, and on the journey home each day, and then here, not a single woman is chatting me up and being turned down for some perceived imperfection. Some people just live lives where they don't meet anyone, and so nobody finds them, and so they sit at home all alone with no idea how this happened. Some of them mistakenly believe it's the fault of all womankind, and then wrong people latch onto them and say, "Aha! They're alone because they deserve to be! What a relief for me and the other normals", and push the virgins further away. But it's a colossal cope to think that explanation can be applied to everyone.

Of course, there are outliers to any broad generalisation you care to make. There will always be blokes who are too busy or just otherwise can't be arsed chasing birds the "natural" way, but I suspect they're in the minority.

I think it's probably true to say that the majority of a prozzie's customers will be either aging, balding middle aged blokes who know they're not exactly a prize catch any more, or lonely awkward lads who never quite figured it out in the first place. There might be some overlap with the chronic crowd, but functionally, I don't think the distinction really matters- They still fall under the broader category of "losers who can't get laid", whether they choose to pay for the solution or not.

Maybe it's judt because I'm a tight arse but it stands to reason to me that you don't pay for something you can get free; and contrary to what stand-up comics have been talking you since the 70s, getting laid doesn't cost you anything but a bit of patience and determination.

It's strange that I find myself on this side of the equation honestly- If you'd have told me what chronic masturbators were when I was 16, I'd have definitely assumed I was going to end up one of them. I was certainly a late bloomer, so to speak- But frankly, once I'd got the hang of it, it turns out I'm quite the ladies man. I wonder how many lads there are out there who simply find themselves sucked into the toxic Internet discourse far too young and it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy for them.

As usual I can only conclude that the answer is to destroy social media. It has been a disaster for humanity.

So what changed about you? Perhaps you have the answer to everyone's problems. My theory, which I stand by, is that you became a person who isn't afraid to approach strangers, who knows which strangers to approach, and who can make a firmer move than just letting them dictate the topics of conversation. I can do the first one, but not the other two, and I have had five sexual partners in the 12 years since my first one. So I very much consider myself near the bottom of the charts (most were one-night stands) but I know I'm smoother and cooler than several other people I know who can't do any of those.

You can set the scroll wheel to "freespin", IE it spins like a Hot Wheels car wheel or "rachet", which is clicky-scrolling every other mouse I've ever used has had. It's very difficult to middle click and get the drag-arrow thing on freespin because it's so sensitive you just scroll out of it immediately, but freespin also negates the need for that because if you want to shoot up or down a page you just let it rip. However, just clicking something once is fine and like I said, you can toggle the wheel one way or another. There are also two other buttons that you could bind to be a "middle click", one under where your thumb sits and another behind the scroll wheel itself.

This also needs examining, considering the majority of our parents' generation were quite content picking one and sticking with it. I know plenty of people who are completely adept socially, but whose bed post only has a few notches. Since when was it expected that by adulthood, we'd all be in the double digits sexually? If that expectation is real, then it's obviously not realistic for everyone, and is obviously harmful.

I've heard that the average is six per lifetime. But of course, some of those will be long-term relationships. Getting laid once every couple of years is, in my opinion, not as often as most people, even though my numbers aren't that freakishly terrible. I'd be happy if someone stayed with me forever, but so far they have not.

I, too, middle-click for opening new browser tabs. My browser's Back button has cobwebs on it. These aren't the middle ages.

Absolutely nothing, I'm still very much the same lad I was then. I even still fit in some of the same clothes. It's just that my estimations of myself were much lower back then, as most people's are when you're an anxious, hormone riddled, acne-faced high school geek. I'm still shy, awkward, and very clearly on the spectrum in some ways; the only difference is I gradually realised none of that is actually an obstacle to getting your end away.

When it comes to flirting and seduction and so on, most lads really are their own worst enemy. You just need a bit of banter and you're good. If you can make a girl laugh and keep a lid on your true power level to start with, you'll find one who likes you eventually; but that's just common sense, and I think even the worst chronics know it on some level. Which brings me back to the point- It becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy for these lads, where once they've got it in their head that they're going to be a 40 year old virgin, they inadvertently set themselves on the path to becoming one.

I definitely thought I was an unattractive loser nobody wanted, but I never quite thought there was no hope at all. What I'm speculating is that it might have been a different matter if I was born ten years later and found out about chronic culture in my teens, and thus spent my days moaning on Rudgwick instead of pestering girls for low res titty pics on MSN Messenger.

I think this is one of those cases where the statistics will be wildly distorted by a few outliers you're have to account for.

I'd hypothesise there's sort of a "sexual bourgeoisie", the skinny blone supermodel girls and the toned metrosexual TOWIE looking lads, who have fuckloads of sex and talk about it all the time, setting an unrealistic expectation. Meanwhile the rest of us have much more modest numbers and we just don't really like to admit it, because everyone is busy pretending they had at least a dozen. I think it also depends on whether you play the long game, or if you're the type who shags around a load in their early life and the settles down.

Personally I'm in my 30s now and I only just passed into the double digits last year, but if I'd settled down with my last long term partner I'd have peaked at 7. I was lagging behind my mates when we were younger, but now I've overtaken most of them- But that's the thing, isn't it. This only feels like it matters when you're young.

It's sort of like penis size. Everyone exaggerates, so if you tell a lass an honest 6" measurement, she thinks it's small, because she's used to everyone (and porn) convincing her they've got an 8 incher; what she doesn't know is that scientifically speaking it's actually slightly above average. Mathematically speaking, you're entirely likely to be bigger than what she's used to, but the expectation is what matters, because we're not logical beings.

I think we're not using language well enough to address the spectrum of sociability here. When we talk about this, it feels like we class people as either chronics or actively able to pull. No offence intended to anyone but if you're hitting your thirties and you've been with more than zero but less than ten people, it's a bit of a stretch to call what you've been doing "seduction", or even "pulling". Unless you've got a very low sex drive or ridiculous standards (and are teetotal), those numbers don't really suggest you're actively winning over people you want to sleep with, those numbers are more like average luck. The sort of numbers you get just by running into the right people at the right time.

I'm 100% not saying there's anything wrong with that. The chronics and the TOWIEs are probably both a lot less psychologically (and physically) healthy the way they go about things.

I would disagree. As a male, you won't ever get your knob wet by accident, it simply doesn't work that way. Even if it's blind luck that you meet a lass who likes you, you have to pursue it, and inaction will always result in the trail going cold. The woman will not do the chasing in anything but the rarest of circumstances.

This could easily turn into a much more philosophical, semantic debate though. I don't think there's really such a thing as "seducing" someone, you're either a yes or a no within ten minutes of meeting them for the first time. The actual challenge is successfully navigating the convoluted series of socially mandated dialogue checks between you and their bedroom.

That hasn't been my experience. There's the chronics who can't do the basic human interaction, there's being able to successfully navigate those who are already interested in you (which is roundabout the average luck I was on about - but this itself has a huge spectrum in it depending on how charismatic/attractive you are) and there's being able to actively change the mind of someone who had you down as "a no within ten minutes of meeting" as you put it, which again, big messy spectrum depending on factors.
Maybe the word "seducing" is misleading because it's not about lighting scented candles and making bedroom eyes at someone, it's interacting with them and getting on, much like making friends with someone who thought you were a cunt at first sight. Just more flirty.

I made the original post about my gf and the follow up about my situation. A bit late to get back to it but just to say thanks to the answers here. Really helpful to know I'm not alone and I must admit I find it strangely comforting I'm not the only one who fell for a girl who pretended she was a lot more into sex than she was.

I'm not sure if I'm in a position to pull the trigger yet but it's weirdly given me more confidence should I decide to. A little frustrating that people lie and hope you'll just accept what they're really like but nevermind, a life lesson well learnt.

I know a guy who is a master of seduction, and he doesn't do anything that I can see. He has what I think of as "hoe-dar"; I go into a pub with him and he says, "Let's talk to them over there", and somehow he has magically sensed the woman in the pub who will say yes to him. If I picked a woman at random and told him to seduce her instead, he would fail, because he's not especially likable and he's a general wastrel and mentally unstable scrounger. But he can sense who doesn't mind that, and he's almost never wrong.

I don't know how to process this, it all feels so fucking weird. We have an appointment monday to follow up, but the doctor said it is unlikely to be alive. Apparently it is only a few mm in size, but she had a very thorough examination via camera. She/we doesn't want to have a child any way.. but I have no idea what to expect going forward if this has to be terminated or if it already is... its just a pill you take right?

There'll be a procedure involved, even at that small. I was about to say "but it isn't that major", but us penis-havers don't really get a say in how serious it is when a doctor has to go into your uterus.

A couple I know are really trying for a second child, but she has repeated miscarriages. I know there are loads of support groups in place for this kind of thing, and they're generally welcoming of male partners as well. It might be worth considering, if not physically going to a place, just browsing the posts in a Facebook group for a while to gain some more perspective.

I'm incredibly awkward at formal events or parties, I also hate compliments and I'm not fond of emotions more generally. It's why the thought of a wedding scares me, why I didn't attend any of my graduation events, why I never tell anyone about my birthday and why the thing that scares me most about dying is that someone will wheel my casket to the funeral. At work I get all my work done, help people with work and don't socialise about anything aside from work which I keep thoroughly separate from my social life.

Unfortunately tomorrow I will, on my own, be attending an event focused on a major project I did and it's leaked that it is also my birthday. I thought I might sneak out early but someone has already messaged me to say that they want to buy me a drink so I won't be getting out of this. I wasn't even supposed to be going to this but some good samaritans have lobbied on my behalf as it would be 'unfair' otherwise that I not attend something after hours that I won't be paid for.

This is a circle of hell. I just want to fucking clock off and spend the evening in silence with a lovely homemade curry but no. Can one of you two call in a bomb threat?

My gf used to work in an early pregnancy ward. She says the main options are you can either wait to pass the miscarried foetus naturally, take medication to speed up passing of the foetus, or in some cases have surgery to remove it. Staff should tailor their care to whether the pregnancy was wanted or not. Some people want to organise funerals, some people just want it to be taken away and cremated/buried without ceremony. Whatever happens, the hospital should be non-judgmental with what choices are made. They will see hundreds of cases like this every year, so if your gf decides she wants to terminate it, they shouldn't give you any guff.

>There'll be a procedure involved, even at that small. I was about to say "but it isn't that major", but us penis-havers don't really get a say in how serious it is when a doctor has to go into your uterus.

We absolutely can, just as they can have an opinion on penis surgery or prostate issues. If you're informed then you're informed. This Kafkaesque pretence that people of certain demographics can't learn certain things or empathise with people of different backgrounds is surely a bad idea and just going to bring about more skirmishes in the culture war.

The key word there being empathise. Given the trauma of finding out you're pregnant, then finding out that you've lost that pregnancy, then having to deal with getting a stillborn embryo evacuated from your body, I can't think of many cases where it would be useful for someone to say "oh that's no big deal, it's just a hoover up your fanny".

In today's disposable consumer society there's very little the middle class can have that the povvos can't; indeed that's exactly why we seethe middle class retreat towards intangible, one-time spending such as on travel and fancy dinners. Material goods like a big TV are just so tacky, aren't they? Surely a signifier that you aren't middle class at all.

But the thing is when they do have it, they'll have the fancy version, they'll have the space in their garden to put up a big one like actual acrobats practice on, not the one they got from the middle aisle in Aldi. There's a world of difference dontcha know. This one is [i]olympic grade.[i/]

Windows 10 is suddenly giving me intermittent black screens on my laptop right in the middle of me doing something, and then reboots and gets stuck in a boot loop until I keep the on/off button pressed down for ten seconds, after which it sometimes boots into Windows again and resumes normal operation, and sometimes doesn't.

Battery seems fine, it's charging right now and is at 30 percent capacity. The black screen happens regardless of what I am doing at that moment, sometimes it's while I am surfing with Chrome, sometimes while I am doing Excel spreadsheets or whatever else. CPU temperature also seems fine, I guess that could be another culprit, where a PC just suddenly dies as it overheats.

I am torn between getting King Of Fighters XV or Warhammer Total War 3. KOF will definitely run on my PC, Warhammer will probably need me to turn down the settings quite a bit. However, I would probably have more fun with Warhammer, as I imagine KOF's online to be full of Mexicans who've been playing since the 90s. Also there is a 99% chance Warhammer will receive continuing content, while KOF's longevity is based entirely on whether people are still playing online three months down the line. I can't afford both right now, so it is a real conundrum.

Manchester is particularly bad though, you're right. I don't think I could ever fly from there, even though it's usually cheaper than flying from alternative northern airports. It's just so much less nightmarish at LBA or NCL.

I drove from here all the way across to Romania once with three fellow petrolhead friends back in 2016, we each took our own cars, went via the Nürburgring too, it was fantastic. But the guys I went with were Romanian, had done the drive, or parts of the drive themselves before, and between us we could passably speak a bit of the language in just about every country we hit.

Had to drive over the Pennines on't M62 earlier and it wasn't too bad. Few gusts of wind pulled at the wheel, and obviously the rain made visibility poor. But it was honestly worse when I made the same drive last week.

I was actually panicking at a couple of points then, because I'm a lay sod who hasn't changed my wiper blades in ages, and they smear at the best of times; let alone driving through the kind of rain where the fastest speed barely grants you half a second of visibility at a time. Honestly a miracle I didn't crash because I couldn't see shit.

It's quite easy this cooking malarkey, I should do more of it.

Yesterday I cooked some onions and peppers with garlic and ginger, added in some Jamaican spice powder and coconut milk before having them in wraps, with rice and a bit of the veg on the side. Piece of piss.

Today I roasted peppers with garlic cloves and bit of salt and herbs before adding in mushrooms, halloumi and then a tin of chopped tomatoes. Served that up with gnocchi. Much better than a jar of sauce.

I don't know why I stick shite in the oven so often when cooking can be a piece of piss.

I went out for a walk earlier, and it was fine. But I started wanting to run. It would look very weird to run down a street at night when you're not dressed as a jogger, but I eventually found a totally empty, long, straight street, and I went for it. It felt absolutely fantastic. Having jogged across the road a couple of times to not be in the way of cars, I was in the mood, and it felt so fantastically liberating. I'm not a runner, and part of the desire was curiosity to see how much I really could run. In the end, I went about 100 metres in 30 seconds before I decided to just walk again, but it was a truly euphoric very brief jog. I can see how people would dress stupidly and be seen doing it and not die of shame. Perhaps I should almost miss buses even more often than I already do.

100 metres in 30 seconds is a perfectly normal pace for someone who, by the looks of things, does not run often, and who was in street clothes. Unless you're conflating that spontaneousrunnerlad's post reading like he's never ran before in his life means that he doesn't do other forms of exercise, in which case stop that.

I should clarify that I stopped by pure choice; I was barely even out of breath. I certainly don't run recreationally, and I think one reason I enjoyed it so much is because it's the first time in many years that I have run without being under some kind of stress, like watching a bus or train close its doors before I am on it.

I used to work with a guy who would run as transport. As in, he would go to the shop, and instead of walking, he would run there in his button-up shirt and jeans. In many ways, that shouldn't be weird and mental, but there's no escaping the fact that it was.

I sometimes have these dreams where I am able to shapeshift, seemingly at will, into a four legged animal when I bend down onto all fours. A dog, fox, or a wolf, something like that, it's never entirely clear what precisely, but certainly not human.

You might think the main feature of these dreams is turning into an animal, my body transforming, growing fur, a snout and all that, but it's not. It's the sheer exhilaration of running. I honestly can't describe it, it's such a pure, wholesome rush of freedom and energy, where I feel alive, happy, and nothing else matters. In these dreams running feels effortless, indeed the more and the faster I run the easier it becomes. I feel compelled to run faster and further each time I start moving. I run up and down the streets of the village I grew up in, down that little alleyway that opens out into the church fields, and out under the moon on the open grass; then I wake up, and I feel profoundly melancholic.

I truly envy animals that were engineered for running like that. Back here in the waking world, in real life, I can't do what I do in those dreams, and that makes me very unhappy sometimes. The closest thing is cycling, where you hunch down and pedal really hard.

Anyway I think the point of my ramble here is that your body likes exercise, and it feels fucking good to give your body what it wants. I'm no fitness freak but I understand how athletes feel when they say exercise is their drug. Get a daft pair of shorts and some baggy t-shirts, and start running. Don't let looking a bit of a div stop you doing something you will enjoy.

I like to listen to online radio from around the world (you all need http://radio.garden in your lives) and with the current news situation, I've been checking out Kiev, Ukraine. The very excellent Melodia FM Disco has a wonderful selection of upbeat party anthems from the past, but I've only been listening since yesterday and they have played the same dance remix of the theme tune from The X-Files three times. Given how long I listen for, that's more than once an hour that they play it. And it's a dance remix of the theme tune from The X-Files. It's bizarre. Some spooky music should play next time I hear it, but I don't think I would appreciate what you're obviously planning next time it comes on.

How old is he, and what sort of anime is it? If he's watching One Piece or anything with thousands of episodes, make sure he's under 15. If he's over 15, he needs to migrate to the superior and intellectual forms of anime, with either adult men experiencing boring adult drama, or little girls going to school and learning valuable lessons about friendship but absolutely not being lesbian with each other. If they're all lesbians, punish your son without mercy. Make him rue the day he heard of anime. Obliterate his enjoyment in anything ever again. Hey, who added this link to the end of my post?

I was in the running for a job once and told to come to their headquarters for an interview, almost a two-hour train ride away. We'd done a phone interview (pre-Covid), and the interviewer was very interested to see me in person. Well, I was almost out the door at 8 am that day when I got a call that they'd suddenly found somebody else for that position. I was a bit miffed because it seemed like it really would have been interesting work, and I ticked all their boxes, but then again, it was nice of them to call me before I got on that train.

The key is - do you want to own the car at the end of the term?

If you don't, and you are setup as Limited Company (because you're a contractor of some kind), there can be advantages to leases/contract hires - you'll pay less tax and you might be able to claim the VAT back, if you're using the vehicle for some/all of your work; this is often called Personal Contract Purchase or Personal Contract Hire or simply a Lease. You pay a load of monthly payments, and at the end can choose to pay a balloon payment to own the car. Most people who go this route don't do that, hand the car back and just get a new one.

If you do want to own the car at the end of the term, without a balloon payment of any kind, you're usually going down the Hire Purchase route - this is a straightforward loan, really - you pay the payments for the years, and at the end the car is yours. It'll be slightly more expensive than buying outright at the beginning, but that path uses up your capital - money is cheap right now, if you have good credit you'll easily find 2-3% loan deals.

Personally, I want to own the car at the end, so whenever I buy cars on tick I usually go for Hire Purchase/Loan.

I was walking down the corridor at work and I'd just microwaved it in my thermal mug, on the way out for my fag break. Without thinking I took a big gulp, and with nowhere to spit it out I had no choice but to just fully swallow it, so it burned all the way along my tongue and into my throat.

It's funny everyone's been talking about burnt mouths for the past week, because today I learnt that long stem brocoli is slightly hollow. So, if you take some out of a boiling pan and bite into it you might just end up squirting almost boiling water over your bottom lip and chin, even after letting it cool for a time. This specific kind of mouth burn couldn't have happened to me as a child because I did not eat or cook brocoli at that age.

Depends if you're departing or arriving frankly.

The last few times I've been there I've only been picking up or dropping people off, though. When you have to pay the extortionate parking and hang around the check in gates and you're not even going anywhere, you can't help but notice how airports are always weirdly impersonal places. They're always totally cold and sterile and empty, you'll never feel as alienated in your life as if you're travelling alone through a series of international airports.

Manchester's is just particularly grim because it's like it's own little town, in Manchester. There's no recovery from that.

Funny, I abhor both of them. Cruise ships because I hate the idea of being stuck in a relatively confined environment on board a ship with the same people for days or weeks. And shopping centres again because of all the people there.

I'm in agreement, I love the bleakness. A busy shopping centre is a nightmare, but an empty or quiet one is outstanding. Airports have this atmosphere regardless of how busy they are, but wandering around nearly empty or completely empty departure lounges the last few years has been fantastic. I'm probably skewed on airports as I work in them, so my experience is very different to that of your average passenger, trapped in that liminal prison for three hours, staring at a departure board.

I bet you quickly learn to hate them when you have to fly for work, too. Nobody looks more miserable than business passengers.

Definitely. For me it's the quiet in such a vast and temporarily abandoned place that normally sees all those masses of people going through during the day. I used to live less than 15 minutes from an airport for a long time, and whenever I needed to clear my head at night and just felt like going somewhere, I would go and have a coffee or a hot chocolate at a café inside one of the terminals just before they closed, and then gaze across the empty terminal and let my mind wander. And then I would take a walk along closed shops and travel agencies, looking at all their last-minute offers in the window to go to Cyprus or Antalya. Then I'd just go home, feeling like it was an infinitely better way to spend the evening than just sulking at home.

I don't know if this means they are bad, or if airport shops are better than I thought, but all the floors always have that incredibly bright and reflective marble pattern and there are always people in suits trying to offer you aftershave.

They feel like desperate places, trying to hang onto the old idea of what a shopping trip should be.

This young woman did a night shift with me at the homeless shelter, her second shift there ever. I've been there for three years now and it's unusual for women to do the night shift and even more unusual for anyone else as young as me to volunteer there at all. It was strange but so what, didn't seem important.
A week later I came home to find a "Sorry we missed you" from the local Labour council team, she's their brand new candidate.
Am I wrong for seeing the worst in this and finding it disgusting? I'm glad shifts are being filled so the shelter can run but wow that's incredibly on point for the cynical, mercenary way that detractors claim Starmer's running the Labour party. It's really solidified my wariness of them into a genuine dislike.

Casinos have a peculiar vibe in the wee hours of the morning. There's a handful of degenerate gamblers, maybe some hospitality staff in for a post-work drink, but otherwise you've got the place to yourself. It feels like you're sneaking in somewhere you aren't supposed to be, but also like you're being welcomed into a secret club.

There's no way you can pin that on Starmer. Local politicians have been opportunists, particularly around election time, as long as I can remember.

If someone came along and helped me when nobody else would, but did so for cynical reasons, I would still be happy for the help and her motivations would be irrelevant. Chat her up, bruv. Obviously, as a Starmerite Labour MP, she will turn out to be a two-faced vacuum with no principles or opinions beyond hollow soundbites, but her charitable self-promotion has already made that clear so you've saved yourself an awkward conversation and it'll be plain sailing from now on.

During the pandemic, the hotels and casinos were all basically closed the entire Las Vegas Strip, and it was the first time in probably decades that there were no cars and tourists flooding the place. The locals took the opportunity to go down there on bikes and jogging, etc., which looked really fun and made for some great photos.

I went to Las Vegas about 10 years ago, was only 17 so couldn't gamble, but one morning I woke up at 4/5AMish, so wandered down the strip. Barely anyone about, except for street cleaners. Dude on a corner tried selling me weed. Went into a diner in one of the casino restaurants, no other customers, had breakfast. Felt weird that if I took that walk 5 hours earlier, the whole strip would be jam packed with drunks and fat Americans in mobility scooters and Central American immigrants handing out business cards for cheap hookers. Truly the greatest city in the world.

They don't do the Girls to Your Door in 20 Minutes cards on the Strip any more, which is a shame because it was fun to see how many different ones you could collect. They've traded them in for far more tasteful advertisements on the side of big fucking vans that go up and down Las Vegas Blvd like a perpetual motion machine. It's a lot less effective, too, because the Strip has even more of those pedestrian bridges, which means you basically never need to walk by the side of the road. Besides, everyone knows it's only an hour to the nearest actual brothel where it's fully legal.

If you go there now, you don't even have to buy weed from a bloke on a street corner, there's shops for that.

How long before weed is legalised in the UK? A tax income like those from Colorado, California, Oregon et al. is surely too much of a cash cow for Tory governments to not take the dive soon.

Probably three or four years, either just before the next election or just after it. It's basically a freebie for getting progressive hippie Twitterati to support you, so either the Conservatives will do it if Labour look like beating them, or Labour will do it so they can also cut taxes for buy-to-let landlords with minimal criticism.

Of course, actual smoking is being banned in more and more places, and is generally becoming unfashionable, so unless you plan to eat your weed, there might never be any point in legalising it.

That's a wild line of thinking. Aside from the logic of it, vaping weed is incredibly popular in legal states.

Thing is it would be very hard for them to straight out ban the act of inhaling smoke through a rolled up piece of paper. They can ban the substance inside the paper but otherwise, what are they going to do?

There's some pressure to ban tobacco in some countries, but I can't see that happening for a very good long time over here. Too much tax revenue comes off smokers. And even if they did, a lot of people use non-tobacco herbal mixes and what have you to roll joints with.

Christ, there are probably 2 weeks of the year when I don't wear shorts. I really don't like trousers, they just get in the way, get mucky, have to be tucked into boots, get eaten by various animals.
Unfortunately, this means I have calloused rings around my ankles and calves where boots and wellies have chafed, makes me look like I'm some kind of deviant who spends my evenings shackled upside down getting beaten.
Time to pop into town to see the pasty white lasses in sundresses, then?

What the fuck lifestyle do you lead that fabric on the bottom half of your legs is "getting in the way", and at risk of being eaten by animals?

Next time you're out and about have a good look at men's legs. Lots wear trousers and jeans that are the wrong length leg for their body; not everyone has a mum that'll take them up for them.

No idea on the animal front.

The info page listed for her claims she volunteers a lot in the area but the only clue about what she plans to do points to being related to job creation.
