I don't want to sound like a queer or nothin', but how can you tell if a cute Asian femboy is gay or is just pursuing an effeminate K-pop aesthetic? Very relevant question on the tail end of a Friday because one just smiled at me and by the time I realised I might want to bang him, and turned around to talk to him fuelled by Dutch courage, he was already gone. I'm starting to think that having a propriety filter is far more of a curse than a blessing. Not even booze can get rid of it.

No homo of course.

I've been watching old episodes of Taskmaster. Sian Gibson is just lovely, the kind of girl you wished was your mate's older sister. Joe Thomas is very socially awkward and it's kind of surprising he has no real rapport with Greg Davies considering they'll have worked together on The Inbetweeners for years.

Had a quite cringeworthy "date" last night with a bird who turned out to be autistic as all fuck. I don't want to sound too mean about it, but like... Not even in a cute way, just in a borderline special bus kind of way. Made me feel very wierd about the dirty texts and so on beforehand, and gave me a bit of an awkward climb down from the expectation of getting laid.

Had a laugh and made the best of it all the same, she was a nice girl underneath of course, but still. Not sure what I'm getting at here, it was just a quite uncomfortable feeling, I'm not used to meeting someone and thinking "actually, no, definitely not" by even my own fairly relaxed standards.

I suppose you know people are going to be different in person than how they appear when you're messaging, but it's not often it's such a night and day difference you're immediately thrown off like that.

How the pissing hell does anyone eat a kipper? They're nothing but bones. Really, genuinely, just a skeleton with minuscule bits of edible fish hidden away irretrievably. I'm the same poster who asked how to eat a fish with a skeleton in it a few months ago, and the resident chef poster said you can basically pull out the whole skeleton in one go. You can't do that on a kipper, or at least not the one I ate earlier. Are you even meant to avoid eating the bones? Are they only for feeding to cats? The tiny pieces of fish I managed to extract with my fingers were very delicious, so I'm all ears for a solution to this.

I think they're some kind of masochist torture food honestly. A dichotomy of deliciousness and pain.

Just get the little tinned ones, it's the only way of avoiding the bones. Fuck knows how they do it though, they must have genetically engineered theirs to grow without bones in the first place.

My first GF from 22 years ago, who I've kept in on off touch with all the way through has just been told she has about 10 at best years as her organs are failing. Her fella of a few years left her a couple of months ago as he couldn't handle it. She's a wonderful lass who has had a lifetime of horror stories and just does not deserve the awful hand of cards she's been played.

The only people I knew personally who died of coronavirus were almost the entire family of the kindest and most loving person I have ever met. The whole family has all sort of health issues, and these horror stories have a tendency to snowball and almost clump around people who already have sad lives. I think my friend might have some sort of autism; she's very hyperemotional and I remember I was with her once and she just burst into tears because a song by Adele was playing. In the end, I stopped asking her how she was because she was absolutely never fine. More than once, she mentioned her own health issues and said how when she was last in hospital, she made friends with a small child in the same ward as her, and she'd found that the child had just died and she was sad about that. My friend is genuinely cursed.

I don't really know where I'm going with any of this.

Taking a different angle: I think part of it is just that it's a helpful mask to put up when our ideas about people's identities (that they're basically fixed, like a TV character) run up against the reality that we're often practically 'different people' to pretty different groups. Especially when we're aware of all of our own internal contradictions and weird habits, but everyone else appears to present a single unified personality to you. (Even if your perception of that singular personality might change when you learn something unexpected.)
Once you're putting everything online on the same profile, it's nice to have a way to explain away the contradictions. "I'm only human" won't wash, people don't believe that for a second - but people are more understanding when it's a medical matter. So if you say "I've got a disorder..." they might give you some understanding.

>>450383
I'd say society doesn't help itself. I often find it interesting how important having a label is. If you go around with ADHD or Autism or Dyslexia, you're just a badly behaved, weird, or stupid until you've got the label, then it's clear that there's actually something going on and it's not your own fault, so people and especially institutions suddenly become more sympathetic and more willing to help even though you're still the same person you were before. I don't like how bleeding heart it sounds, but who can blame people for chasing labels when it's the only way to get some compassion, or at least a remotely socially acceptable way of explaining your less desirable behaviours to others?

I just spent 40+ minutes more than I had to walking home because some dude had too much too drink. I called an ambulance for him since I thought it was something more serious because he was said he couldn't breathe, he had no memory of how he had got there, and he flat out said he didn't drink too much or take any drugs before he collapsed on the pavement.

The fuck is with natives in these isles who can't handle their booze? If I've had too much to drink I'd just be like "nah, I'll be fine, I'll just sleep it off". This dude thought it was the end of his entire world.

>Does anywhere else have a minster?
Beverley has a minster which is absolutely stunning, arguably just as nice as York Minster despite being slightly smaller.

Hull Trinity Church was redesignated Hull Minster as part of the 2017 City of Culture events, but honestly I don't know what that means. Trinity Church is nice and everything, but it doesn't hold a candle to Beverley Minster aesthetically.

Reading the Wikipedia page for "minster" doesn't make it much clearer, either, though it sort of affirms my own understanding that a minster is just a good/important church:
>By the tenth century, a gradual distinction between a "church" and a "mynster" began to emerge. For instance, in the Leechdoms, the sixteenth day was propitious for establishing a mynster, and the sixth day of the moon for founding a church. This suggests that by the tenth and eleventh centuries, mynster was being used to refer to a "superior church" which was regarded as long-established and to which people paid their dues.

Just watched the original Matrix movie again for the first time in over 20 years. I can see why it was such a seminal movie and pop culture phenomenon back then, and also why I was a huge fan when it came out, but with the distance of more than two decades, it's kind of overly full of itself, sometimes to the point of complete pretension. Or maybe the overuse of its tropes in popular culture just makes it impossible nowadays to enjoy it for what it is.

As a glib sci-fi noir flick with some flaws, it still holds its own against many other movies that came after it. But I'm actually a bit disappointed because it was so much more in my fond memories of it than it turned out to be while I was rewatching it tonight. And I really don't feel compelled in anyway to watch the reboot.

I never saw the appeal of it. "Dude, it's like, what if society is, like, not as we perceive it, man? No film has ever suggested such a thing before!" Yes they bloody had, even in 1999. I couldn't see why people were so dazzled by this premise.

Highly influential things often don't age well, because they seem like cliches in retrospect. All the things that made The Matrix spectacular have been endlessly imitated.

I think that cultural tastes have massively shifted away from sincerity and earnestness. Fight Club looks similarly naff in hindsight, in no small part because we expect things to be a bit ironic and cynical and detached. Unease about unreality and artifice were very zeitgeisty at the time (The Truman Show was released a year previously), but we've all sort of moved on.

Also, it's easy to forget just how culturally distant 1999 is from today. The Matrix was released on laserdisc. The Nokia 3210 was brand new. Shania Twain and The Backstreet Boys were in the charts. Jill Dando was still alive and Gary Glitter was still allowed within 100 metres of a school.

Agent Smith falls a little flat, but overall I think The Matrix really holds up. It did when I last watched it about six months ago anyway. Themes about rejecting the status quo and self-belief might not be the most revelatory ones in the world, but as a high-concept action film I still think it's one of the best. It's got a very strong cast as well as all that, which as someone who thinks interesting actors (or possibly good "actor's directors") are thin on the ground right now, I really appriciate.

It's also, and I can't state this strong enough, cool as fuck.

Yes and no. Back in the day, there were entire web forums about the Matrix movie(s), and some people were really committed to it and to the idea that it was loaded with philosphical meaning, to the point that they treated it almost like a religion.

When in reality, the Wachowskis' stroke of genius was to wrap together a bunch of pre-existing zeitgeist ideas and currents into a polished dystopian action sci-fi flick whose graphic novel-style cinematography was a much bigger feat than the actual storytelling. Even the idea of the rolling Matrix source code was nicked. I think it first appeared in the original Independence Day movie on board the alien spaceship.

What The Matrix also heavily fed on was that the World Wide Web was still fairly new in popular culture, and there were all kinds of diffuse ideas and concepts floating around about what the Internet could be like in the near future, where we would somehow all be uploaded into cyberspace and into virtual realities. Also, it was the dawn of the new Millennium, which in its own way stimulated lots of people's imagination about the future.

Maybe cyberspace has just become such an intrinsic part of our lives in the 23 years since the movie came out that the kind of innocent look it takes at that whole brave new world is just something nobody can get excited about anymore or even relate to nowadays. Sadly, with that part of its original appeal now missing, it just feels childish in places. I watched the movie at the cinema on a date when it came out, completely unprepared because up to that evening I'd never even heard of it, and the whole concept of it just left me with my mind blown and slightly unsettled by the time it was over. I just can't see that happening today with somebody who has never seen the movie before.

Another way of looking at it is that it spawned the Manosphere and the Alt Right.

https://screenrant.com/matrix-hugo-weaving-alt-right-red-pill-criticism/


Getting back to my point of the Wachowskis nicking heavily from other tropes and movies, a red pill serves as a plot device in the 1990 movie Total Recall, where Schwarzenegger's character is told that he is inside a computer-generated dream simulation, and that he needs to take a red pill to wake up from it. He is told that it's "a symbol for your desire to return to reality".

HottrsHottest day of the year lads. Reaching all the way up into the low 20s. How are you holding up, shirtless beers in the garden? Got your air con sorted before they all sell out? Least you won't have to worry about the heating bill any more eh!

No way is a Yorkie in the God tier. Definitely written by an insecure Yorkie consumer.

I forgot to turn my alarms off and then some silly cow started messaging me even after I told her I was still in bed. In the end I just decided to get up for all the peace I was liable to get.

The Yorkie egg is great - you get a fair amount of chocolate for the price and the shell is Yorkie chocolate when so many companies tend to just give you a generic egg (all Cadbury should be one tier or at least broken by size).

Lindt egg is the real awful-tier not only for the pretentious cost but because they're utterly stingy with the side-chocolate. And the heritage collection.

I don't understand why all the Cadbury's ones are up and down the rankings, aren't they all the same chocolate? Chocolonely's "God Tier" as well, everyone knows that.

I don't think anyone is going to trust Tony's Chocolonely that after his calendar stunt. Imagine it, you finish eating the egg but then notice a hidden note inside:

>This egg has been laced with a powerful laxative, let this serves as a reminder that some lives are shittier than others. Do not even try and run to the toilet, you won't make it.

Does anyone here use Letterboxd? How awful is it? Can you have a hermetically sealed account no one else ever sees? Or does it force you to reconnect with people you had double maths with centuries ago? I just want somewhere to jot down my thoughts on films I’ve watched. I guess I could use a pen and paper like a Neanderthal if I have to.

The idea is that this is for my own use. I want to have a big tick list of films I've seen, not have a discussion about them or, more likely, commit my thoughts to the imageboard void and watch them drift away into obscurity. I'm not necessarily going to have interesting or enlightening ideas about the films I've seen either, so it's not as though they're all going to be worth sharing in the first place.

Well, copy and paste them here anyway, it's not like this place is exactly a bastion of quality and well thought out analysis these days.

I just like hearing other people's opinions on things (who are not shill journos or pretentious YouTubers.)

What the fuck do I get my dad for his birthday? He generally doesn't do much beyond watching TV or going to the horse racing, so usually I'll just get him something like a Toblerone and a DVD but he's 70 this year so I feel like I should be making much of an effort. What do you buy for the man who wants fuck all?

Not to be glib, but have you thought about just asking him? I know some people are very precious about this, but if your dad is a straight-forward bloke he might just come out and tell you "I need new tools", "I've run out of special booze X", or "there's a series on Amazon prime I want to watch, buy me a gift membership".

I've asked my mum, which is as good as asking him direct, and he can't think of anything he wants. She's suggested tickets for gigs by tribute bands for either Pink Floyd or The Eagles.

He sounds like my dad. My dad likes photography and steam trains, and I usually buy him a photography book or a book on steam trains. He also likes Stewart Lee, so I bought him a Stewart Lee DVD because that's something we both like and can watch together, and buying something related to a shared interest is the best present you can get someone, because it makes it definitely from you.

The really scary part is that they just trained GPT-3 on a load of source code. It seems like every problem can be solved by just giving GPT-3 a big enough corpus. I live in fear that someone will feed it all of Piers Morgan's tweets and create a superintelligent AI twat.

I’d wager the abundance of real twats precludes the need for AI counterparts.

Conversely it’s surely only a matter of time before employers realise every code monkey is “working” three jobs and subcontracting to a GitHub AI. For the record I say more power to them.

Oh, I agree. It's not quite the same but when I took on my current role, I inherited a load of time consuming reports that I spent about three days turning almost completely automated in Excel. I have not told anyone this, and if I ever leave or someone covers for me, I will hide all evidence of this.

Went to view a flat this morning. Apparently it's already under offer but I'm going to put an offer in anyway, because you might as well in case the other one ghosts.

There was a couple turned up right after I viewed it who were clearly retired boomers looking for their next buy to let investment. Sort of wanted to key their big daft land rover.

You never know, they could be downsizing. There's a lot of people in their 60s with interest-only mortgages that they won't be able to pay off at the end of term because they've spend all the money they've had coming in and maxed out their credit doing things like getting a flash car on finance, so they've got little choice other than to sell their home and use the equity to get somewhere smaller.
