Strawberries are flowering now. I started out with four or five plants from the local garden centre five years ago, and now there are over 50. They tend to propagate profusely, as every plant grows about two or three runners every year after fruiting.

I put them all in a new bed two weeks ago. There should be enough strawberries for a nice big strawberry pie at some point this season.

Ordered some shoes on Sunday afternoon, didn't bother with the next day delivery because another tenner on a £50 item seemed too much, but they arrived just moment ago anyway. Neat. They do sort of look like those shoes short celebrity lads wear because they're embarrassed.

It was raining really hard this morning, and I cycle to work, so I had to wear my horrible plastic trousers. This meant I couldn't put anything in my pockets as usual, and had to put my wallet and keys and so on in my bike bags instead. In turn, this resulted in me leaving my phone at home, because I keep it somewhere else from my other pocket possessions. And having no phone all day meant I learnt something very awful about myself, and how I have become one of those people who is actually very dependent on checking their phone every few minutes when they are bored.

I wish it was too hot here and hadn't rained this morning.

I want this authentic 1940s flight suit but I can't afford £3500. Why didn't anyone tell me there would be flight suits? I would have worked harder if they'd told me that.

That was this morning, by the afternoon I was right I think. Get a backpack, or a flight suit if you've got the money.

Mikado's the healthy option for the manchild who can't walk past a supermarket without buying at least two snacks and a chilled coffee.

Funny you should say that, when I was a bit younger I used to have a watch with a leather strap, and once I had the idea of using it as a makeshift cock ring. I noticed, however, that it fastened snugly round my cock at the same notch I fastened it around my wrist.

Does that mean I've got a really thick cock, or really skinny wrists? Or is it normal, like how your foot is always the same length as your forearm?

Going by what some lasses have told me, my erect knob is sort of above average in girth compared to other lads. And one of my more skinny exes used to joke that it was about the size of her wrist, which wasn't completely untrue.

So yeah, I guess if you have a thick knob and girls' wrists, then you should be fine.

Zoomers are fucking weird though, everything is double reverse unironic ironic irony for them. Growing up on the internet has done a number on them.

At least my generation grew up online, but knew you sort of had to pretend you didn't. Being into weird terminally online junk culture was something you didn't really admit to publicly, but now it's just presumed. It's really strange too, how because of this the zoomers at work think I'm some sort of normie, they don't realise I'm one of the people who was there at ground zero, I participated in the very genesis of all the daft memes and shit they take for granted. One of them was shocked I know what hentai is.

Anyway as far as I know the "zoomer" thing started in conjunction with the "30 year old boomer" meme, because now that millennial aren't the youngest generation, we're actually the boomers. It's kind of true, in a funny sort of way. We don't like all the daft newfangled tiktok cringe and whatever they're into.

I like the idea of defining generation by your big youth trends, though. I was the pokemon cards and Harry Potter generation.

Crap audio. We have a whole vocabulary of technical jargon for describing various kinds of crapness, because - to paraphrase Tolstoy - all good audio sounds alike, but all crap audio is crap in its own way.

A lay person might use a term like "tinny", "muffled" or "harsh", but that isn't particularly useful to an audio engineer. We might describe your phone's speaker as being band-limited with a steep rolloff at 300Hz and high THD, or a cheap car subwoofer as being under-damped with cabinet resonances and port compression.


If you bought your house for £2.71, you're a boomer. If you remember MSN Messenger and avoid opening letters from the Student Loans Company, you're a millennial. If you've never actually experienced hope so don't suffer from its absence, you're a zoomer.

I think it might just appear that way to us because we grew up with a post-modernism zeitgest, where it was very uncool to be openly trying or caring about just about anything. From what I've heard from friends who are teachers and my missus who is a child therapist, Gen Z are just generally extremely chilled out. Apparently there's no bullying in schools nowadays, bullies are social pariahs, and everyone just sort of gets along with everyone. Then that's developed a culture where it's okay/encouraged to be passionate about something, and all the other soft cunt teenagers are genuinely supportive about it. Obviously, all of this come stem from ingrained nihilism, as >>451598 says.

There's a fun counter-effect to what you're saying about Gen Z having a more blurred line between their real-life and online personas. There's not that many niche fashion trends any more, nor the social hubs associated with them. You don't catch a big bunch of teenagers dressed the same knocking about city centres any more, because nowadays they express their niche interests by curating their online image rather than begging their mam for a pair of Vans so the other alternative kids would notice them.

Traditional bullying definitely still exists, but secondary school kids are a lot more switched on about social issues these days so it's very easy to become a pariah if you don't blindly conform to the hivemind. It's fanaticism and there's a lot of pressure not to make a misstep.

Nah m8. You might get overt wokery in posh schools down in That London, but most schoolkids don't give a shit. The big difference is that this generation have grown up with a very insecure job market, a hideous lack of social mobility and the panopticon of social media.

They're all basically swots, because they live in a state of constant fear - not fear of some woke mob, but of the increasingly precarious tightrope they have to walk to stand any real chance of a decent life. They know that housing is unaffordable, they know that there aren't enough decent jobs to go around, they know that grades are going up every year, they know that the economy and the climate are fucked, they know that anything they do or say could be recorded on the internet forever.

They're remarkably cheerful about it all, because they just don't know any different. The current crop of Year 7s have lived their entire lives under an austerity government. The only world they've ever known is one in which everything gets incrementally worse with every passing year. The girls might sometimes bully each other online, the lads might have the odd scrap, but on the whole they're remarkably nice to each other. I suspect this is partly due to the fear of zero-tolerance policies and the eagerness of schools to unofficially exclude pupils, partly due to a greater awareness of mental health and more progressive attitudes, but also partly due to a kind of siege mentality. You just don't have the energy for petty infighting when you're using all your strength just to tread water.

When did they stop making Family Guy? Have they stopped making Family Guy? It's just occurred to me I haven't heard anyone talk about Family Guy for years. People still mention South Park occasionally, and that's still being made, but nobody talks about The Simpsons and that's still being made too. Family Guy, meanwhile, has just faded from the public consciousness completely.

I haven't watched Family Guy in years, probably not since it left BBC Three. It's the kind of thing you watch because it's late at night and you fancy switching your brain off for a while, rather than something you'd actually go out of your way to view, although I imagine fewer people are doing that these days thanks to streaming.

I think what elevates South Park over The Simpsons and Family Guy is that it still manages to be funny. I caught The Simpsons yesterday, a repeat from Series 21 (2010), and it was a shitshow from start to finish.

Family Guy is in a comfortable position because it just needs to tread water to maintain its life. It's formulaic, lightweight entertainment. It was never amazing, it just chugs along and presumably brings in viewers, but it has no ambition so there's nothing to talk about.

The Simpsons was once the biggest show on TV, and has been shit for half of its life span, so people see it and feel sad for how it went downhill.

South Park is very topical, so lends itself well to discussion as it can be quite cutting and controversial. I haven't actually watched a full episode of South Park in about 15 years, but I still hear about what's happening in it as it is notable in TV news.

Nobody talks about American Dad either, but it's my favourite of the modern day adult cartoons.

Family Guy has had its ups and downs as well. From around series 15, it suffered from Seth MacFarlane stepping back as creative head to focus on other projects, and pretty much just phoning it in. The only real work he was doing on the show during that time was the voice overs for Peter and Brian and some supporting characters. And as a consequence, the show's quality took a complete nose dive. At some point, MacFarlane even greenlit a mid-season story arc to kill off Brian the Dog for a few episodes, a step that was more than controversial because MacFarlane has always said that of all the characters he does on the show, Brian's personality feels the closest to him. So in a symbolic way, it was going to be a goodbye from the show.

It didn't go down well with viewers, especially not the fact that they brought in a character replacement for Brian in the form of another dog, who somehow had an East Coast Italian American mobster accent. That move was panned almost universally by fans and critics, and as a consequence, they chose to bring back Brian.

I guess they took the fan outrage as a well received warning, because from then on, the show's quality has noticeably improved again. Series 16 was probably where it bottomed out, with some episodes just being an unwatchable mess.

On the topic of Brian, as the show has gone on he's gone from mouth-of-the-creator straight guy with 'good' opinions, to hypocritical pretentious pseudointellectual liberal, with several episodes dedicated to what a piece of shit he is (generally Quagmire centric episodes). Not sure how much involvement MacFarlane has with that, but I appreciate them taking the piss and making the character actually funny.

I guess it's an adept attempt at self irony, because that's just the kind of guy Seth MacFarlane is. Yes, he is a Liberal, as is Brian, with many bleeding-heart guilty white liberal middle class douchebag views and opinions, but he also knows that the Liberal agenda in the U.S. tends to be completely full of shit. And so he doesn't mind taking the piss out of himself.

I think if Family Guy sticks to its current formula, it has a good chance of aging much better than the Simpsons. I watched some of the recent Simpsons episodes a while ago, and it's sad to see what utter shite that show has become. They should have packed it in ten to fifteen years ago.
