My girlfriend shut all of the windows overnight because she was paranoid that we wouldn't be up in time to close them when it went from being cooler outside than inside to being warmer outside. The end result is that the house is very stuffy and it's still cooler outside.

Open windows. Closed Curtains. Is the optimal configuration for this weather.

Propping open your bedroom door with a fan and running it overnight will provide some relief.

Soaking in a cool bath (<37c) before bed will help lower your core body temperature and make sleep easier

Get plenty of fluids, but make sure you're replacing salts (lucozade sport is pretty good for this)

Wear a hat and high factor sunscreen. I wear factor 50 despite the label trying to shame me by saying the sunscreen is for 'infants and babies'

Better to stay out of the sun altogether lest you burst into flames.

Thanks, lad. She's not keen on fans either because she thinks they're too loud and "all they do is blow hot air around" but she's fucked off to work so I can get some peace.

I'm in a three storey house, with windows facing to the North-West and South-East, and I have a grand total of five fans at my disposal. How should I most effectively circulate air around the building? I'm guessing I should have fans pointing outside on the top floor North-West windows and pointing inside on the South-East ones downstairs, but I'm not a scientist.

For its time, the special effects in Terminator 2 were nothing short of groundbreaking. But when you look at the nuclear blast scene now, it hasn't aged well. A similar scene at the beginning of Terminator 3 holds up far better after nearly 20 years.

I sort of want to play a video game, but I reckon if my GPU gets hot enough for the fans to rotate even slightly the entire room will turn into a sauna. Also, I had a look and my CPU is currently the same temperature as London will be tomorrow evening, which probably means I need to play around with my fan curves.

This is why I did fuck all other than drink and sleep over the weekend. Even having the computer on would have put my room in the 40s, and turning on my amp to play guitar would have been a deathwish because I thought it was a good idea to get rid of my solid state amps in favour of valve amps that act like a space heater at the best of times.

There's nothing for it lads. Just lie there and accept your fate. Maybe if you have any retro consoles about you can just about manage, a PS1 or whatever never really gave off any heat as I remember.

The heat is supposed to build gradually until the highest point around 4pm

After that it'll drop slowly until 6am, then the same thing repeats tomorrow.

Tomorrow will be more "extreme", so a slightly hotter peak at 4pm, but it'll drop faster afterwards, being cooler by that midnight than the coolest point of the night before.

I don't think I've watched any of the Terminator films, apart from the first two proper ones, all the way through. I have little desire to change that.

I've just let the cat out because she wouldn't stop whining at the door, not sure how long I should leave it before getting her back in.

I'm feeling too hot to do anything, so I'm mainly just playing Football Manager while waiting to see if any important calls or emails come in.

Salavation is duff. Genesis was an attempt to reboot the series and was shit. Dark fate tells you to ignore everything after T2 and accept it as the official T3.

They should've stopped after T3. It was good enough to be the end point of the franchise, because, guess what, they didn't manage to prevent Judgement Day after all. End of the story. Case closed. Even with all its references to future events, there was no real need to do yet another sequel to follow up on those loose ends.

It was a bit of a disappointment back then that Linda Hamilton wasn't on board, because Terminator without her made about as much sense as Alien without Sigourney Weaver. Good thing though that she wasn't recast. That probably would have ended up being an even bigger disappointment.

Kristanna Loken as the T-X was a strong female part, which was an obvious and thankfully not entirely unsuccessful attempt to offset that drawback, but it just didn't feel the same. And bringing Linda Hamilton back only for Dark Fate was too little, too late.

Private dentistry is absolutely sick. I went to the dentist today to get my filling replaced, furious that it would cost £300. The place I went to has three different TVs, all on different channels, all with the sound off and with music playing as well. I sat in the dentist's chair, watching one TV, then he tipped me back to look in my mouth, and there was another TV on the ceiling for me to watch. It was adverts, so I didn't actually enjoy it, but it's wild all the same.

You need to get a check-up before the dentist does anything; that costs £60. He dictated every single detail about what's wrong with every single one of my teeth to his assistant, but he thankfully spared me the fearmongering sales pitch about how most of my teeth are on the verge of crumbling to dust. And replacing the filling was actually only £130, so much cheaper than I had been expecting. I thought the whole procedure would take 2-3 hours, but my appointment was 1120 and I was out of there before noon. I even asked him, while I was there, if he could also file down my massively chipped tooth so I wouldn't keep slicing my tongue open on it. He did that for an additional £35 and it took all of three minutes. What a king. No wonder rich people always have such lovely teeth.

Agreed on this. The last time I used NHS (back when that existed) the dentist even left a filling flush which picked up plaque and was impossible to clean, never again I said.

I feel truly sorry for people getting older who can't afford private and effectively never get a cleaning by a hygienist.

>And replacing the filling was actually only £130

He's pulling your pants down, I hardly go to a cheap one and yet a filling still only costs me £75. Although mine is definitely keen on the upsell for better or worse.

Your computer must be either broken or from the future, then. Most processors idle at about 40 degrees before you even start doing anything with them, and as soon as you start playing games, even the most efficient GPUs run in the high 60s. That heat has to go somewhere.

And you've no idea how hot a quad of EL34s get. You could toast bread over an old Marshall.

Anyway I'm not sure why you find any of this bewildering, it's well known that British homes are typically quite compact, shall we say, and designed for keeping heat in. It's going to be noticeable, especially if we're talking about a little spare bedroom like most sensible people would establish their gaming and music producing man-cave in.

I tried ordering from Argos online and when I got the confirmation email they gave me a store collection date of tomorrow. So I cancelled and walked down to risk it and managed to find a standing fan that I've now got on my desk. A cheeky young woman tried cutting in front of me in the line and was shocked at then being told to go to the back like everyone else.

Treasure your fan. Someone on here will try and shill you a MEACO fan but you can tell them to jog right on.

In fairness I've always thought that's a pretty respectable idea if the layout of your home will accommodate it. I used to live in a studio flat and had my PC at a desk just behind the partition wall for the bedroom, so all it took was a HDMI cable and a USB extension going round the bottom of the door frame. That meant I could game in the living room on The Big Telly without any fan noise or extra heat.

You know I miss that place. There's something to be said for living in a compact space with just what you need, everything practically at arm's reach, and no excess. The only annoying bit was being able to hear the fridge buzz all the time. Having more space never really gives you more space, you just find ways of filling it up, I've noticed. Or at least, your missus does

>Most processors idle at about 40 degrees before you even start doing anything with them

>That heat has to go somewhere.


Yes, but that doesn't mean they heat your room to 40 degrees in that state. My laptop's CPU is at 67°C at the moment with a few background applications running. That temperature may be considerable, and I can certainly feel the heat from my laptop on my legs right now, but the total amount of heat energy it gives off is really not that much. The same way you can't heat your room with a cigarette lighter, despite it burning at temperatures of up to 1900°C.

A top of the range desktop gaming PC will probably give off no more than 150 watts of pure heat energy even when you put it through its paces, according to https://smallbusiness.chron.com/average-heat-output-computer-69494.html .

Most electrical home heaters in the UK are rated for 10A at 230V, which works out to almost 2300 watts of heat energy (it's a little known fact that electric space heaters are among the most energy efficient home devices, as nearly 100 percent of the power they draw gets used for its intended purpose; even the heat from any circuit boards inside it is given off into the ambient air, and the mechanical energy that spins the heater's fans turns into heat via air friction).

So when you've got your PC running, you've got about 6.5 percent of the heat output of a space heater on full blast. I'm not saying it isn't going to contribute to your room temperature at all, but it's not as much as you would think.

At 300 kelvin, which is just over 27°C, the specific heat capacity of ambient air at sea level like in your bedroom is around 1 J/g*K. Meaning, to heat one gram of air by one kelvin, you need one joule.

150 watts heat output means by definition that your PC gives off 150 joules of heat per second. At sea level, the density of air is roughly 1.222 kilograms per cubic metre. Let's say you've got a slightly above average sized bedroom of about 15 square metres or 160 square feet. Standard ceiling height in residential properties in the UK is 2.40 m according to Google. That works out to around 360 cubic metres of air in your bedroom, which weighs 440 kilograms or 440,000 grams. If we plug that into our heat capacity of ambient air of 1 J/g*K, then you need 440 kilojoules to heat your room by one kelvin or degree celsius. If you divide 440,000 by your 150 watts or joules per second, it turns out that it takes your computer, again running on full blast, 48 minutes and 52 seconds to raise your room temperature by one degree.

This is a ceteris paribus model, i.e. we assume that all other factors of your bedroom temperature remain constant. If we introduce variables like heat loss through an open window, increased by the air flow of a running fan, or if your room is a bigger size, then the effect can be considerably less.

Your source unfortunately gives an extremely conservative figure for the power consumption of a high-end PC. Mine draws over 500w from the wall under load. A properly top-spec gaming rig (3090, 12900k) with a decent overclock could easily draw 800w.

Either way, try to make the room air-tight, but if it's the latter, make cardboard constructions to block up any window gaps, and wrap the outlet hose in as much bubble wrap as you can. Those units are borderline shite, you have to give them all the help you can.

So you've gone to all that effort to prove otherlad right, in that playing videogames for just shy of three and a bit hours would push a room at 36 degrees (the temperature it's been over most of the country today), over the 40 degree mark. You're also "assuming a larger than average bedroom", so for anybody with the average (or in other words, MOST COMMON) or smaller bedroom, it'll be even faster.

Most of us didn't need you to do the maths, because we already know the heat from a gaming PC can and does have an appreciable effect on the temperature of a room. When me and my ex had our gaming setup (we both had gaming PCs) in our spare room we didn't even need to put the heating on in winter, in fact we sometimes still had to open the window, right through December and January.

It's the latter. I wanted a split unit, but couldn't bear the thought of having to install something in this weather.

I already knew these units are a bit shite, I watched a Technology Connections video about it - but it does exactly what I need it to, which is blow 16 degree C air directly at my naked body as I lie in bed. The hose coming out the back is definitely radiating heat out and must be cancelling out any effort to cool the whole room, but for £150 I can't say I'm too fussed. It also doubles as a dehumidifier so that will be useful in the garage in autumn.

I reckon if I really could be bothered I could plumb the vent out into the wall and out the house that way, making it massively more efficient. But at that point I might as well just get a split unit.

Fair enough - but I'd still recommend wrapping that hose. Even a couple of towels will significantly (mathslad will be along in a moment) reduce the heat being dumped back into your room.
I don't suppose you've got an unused chimney / fireplace you could dump it into? Easier than trying to seal all those annoying triangles of an open window.

It's been hot, sure, but people were saying we'd smash the records and go above 40 degrees on Monday. I assumed we would, since suburban Manchester got to an effortless 36, but the country as a whole barely went past 38 in the hottest place. It will be hotter tomorrow. Much hotter.

Honestly, I actually really like it; there's not much humidity so it's all pretty survivable. The only problem is that I work in a datacentre which, as it turns out, promises everyone we'll keep all their servers cool and fresh, but struggles to do that if the outside temperature goes above 32. We had some problems today/on Monday. It might be comfy out there, and refreshingly novel, but there's every possibility I won't have a job by Wednesday, and that's not so good.

That study is saying that less than half of expert predictions were within their own confidence ranges. Whether they were more accurate than predictions from the general public is irrelevant.

What matters is the actual modelling by the likes of Imperial College London which influenced government decision making.

>It is only a fortnight since Ferguson told the BBC that it was “almost inevitable” that daily infection rates would hit a record 100,000 and could peak at more than 200,000 after restrictions were relaxed. In fact daily cases have barely topped 30,000. The professor admits his prediction was “off” and blames the football for messing up his modelling. As people congregated in pubs and homes to watch the Euro 2020 matches, “we had an artificially inflated level of contact during that period and then suddenly it dropped off”.

Lad. Don't be one of those people.

The official covid modelling was way off. That shouldn't be a controversial statement to make. It doesn't necessitate having a discussion about lockdowns or whatever other bollocks you want to bring up.

There is this thing called nuance. You do not have to view everything in black and white. It is very important to be able to understand the flaws and mistakes on the 'side' you support, rather than having blind and unwavering devotion where you automatically assume anyone who is able to point out those issues is the other and must be attacked. Nothing is infallible.

A model and a prediction are very different things. A lot of models were presented throughout COVID with very poor communication of what they were supposed to show.

Because I've never really actually thought about it, but howcome it's this hot right now, but other times when it's really sunny it's not this hot? Are we getting a big warm draft from the Sahara or something? Is it because it hasn't rained in a while? What's going on?

Because it still is.

That and your house/flat/whatever has been heating up over the course of three days, but because our homes are designed to keep heat in, it'll take a long time to dissipate.

I've kept an asparagus steamer from an ex who said I could have it when we broke up. You put your asparagus in it upright and it sits in kind of a removable basket inside the pot, and you're meant to fill it with only about two to three centimetres of water.

Problem is, it's literally only good for steaming asparagus. It's difficult to use for pretty much anything else because it's quite narrow and tall. So it really only takes up space and collects dust in your kitchen, save for the few times a year that you're actually having asparagus. Also, as the asparagus becomes soft from the steam, it kind of sags in on itself and has kinks in it when you serve it. So I've pretty much gone back to cooking my asparagus lying down in a regular pot.

it's not the only use.
They also make really good hobbyist vapour phase reflow ovens, if they're suitable for induction hobs.
Th combination of thick base, tall, handles, glass lid and tall/thin aspect ratio is just about right.
You just need some (cripplingly expensive) Galden fluid.

Stock pot if you want concentrated stock from a chicken carcass? Just cram it in...

Steamers are the wrong way to cook asparagus, anyway. Dump it in a frying pan with a tiny bit of water (1mm depth, maybe?), stick lid on, steam asparagus (stays straight). After 30 secs of steaming, remove lid, whack heat up to boil off remainder of water, then add a smidgeon of butter or a lesser oil once the water is gone, shake, cook until outer surface is as you want it. Sounds like a palaver, takes about 4 minutes, produces best asparagus. Steaming is for people who hate asparagus and who want their victims to also hate the stuff.

Someone on a thread I can't find was bemoaning the price of instant coffee.
These 500g tubs are what you need - decant it into your last glass jar for convenience (and not a kilner jar, kilnerjarlasslad).
It's normally £5 (or £4 on a good week) - I've never seen it at the £7.50 they're failing to charge online. Or maybe it really is the end of days, and coffeegeddon's coming. Fuck. Anyway, pack your coffee, in bulk. Or drink tea, I guess.

Problem is if you're going to drink own brand instant, you might as well go out into the garden, and put a teaspoon of dry soil in your cup. It'd probably taste better.

I'm no coffee snob, I'm not going to sit and pretend you have to have hand-ground beans in a moka pot that have been matured up a Peruvian teenager's fanny or whatever. But there's a minimum level for coffee to be really drinkable, and none of the supermarket's own brand passes muster. You have to be at least Douwe Egberts or above, and that's where it gets steep.

I might as well be drinking the Peruvian fanny beans, at these prices. If I am forced to go back to Alcafe, then it's definitive proof of the failure of capitalism, not even ex-soviet bloc countries have to live in such deprivation.

It does sound like that, but I'm really not. I just resent either having to rinse and dry a spoon off each time, or using a dozen spoons a day, or rummaging around in a pristine tub of coffee with a wet manky spoon.
This way is spoonless. I just pour some coffee into the mug (which gets washed once a year, whether it needs it or not), then add water. Then add more water, since instant coffee does that weird re-levelling thing, whether it had nasty fake foam on top or not.
So I'm actually a finely honed slob, rather than a fop.
As for coffeesnoblad, Souwe Egberts is at least as nasty as industial own-brand instant. If I want nice coffee, I'll grind some and neck a cafetiere of it, but cba to go through that five times a day. Hoicking the warm spent grounds out of the cafetiere is a foul feeling, makes me feel like I'm rummaging around inside your mum.

the pouring water. First inch, wait a second or two for it to dissolve, then dilute with the rest. Perfect mix, no spoon. Pint mug, may or may not work with smaller mugs.
Even hot chocolate can be made this way if you pour from a sufficient height. As we all know from Charlie & the chocolate factory, a waterfall is the only way to properly mix chocolate. Same goes for hot chocolate. Spoons are for the weak.

The reason to drink instant is for convenience, not taste; obviously if you want good coffee you get the real thing, everyone knows that.

But that's not the criteria against which instant is being judged, it's a totally redundant point to make. You're going to drink instant because nobody can be arsed brewing real coffee several times a day- But that doesn't mean you're going to settle for drinking heavily diluted mud either.

Kenco Milcano isn't too bad. I've also found drinking it with whole milk stops it tasting quite as watery and bland.

I really enjoy women's football, but only the international tournaments for some reason. I can't muster even the slightest interest in women's league football, despite my love for women's World Cups and Euros. However, one thing that upsets me enormously is that because of this, I will pick out a selection of favourite players in one tournament, and then by the time I next watch women's football, all my favourite players have retired aged 28 and will never play again. I can't even fancy the current crop, because my heart will forever belong to Laure Boulleau of France. Much as I love Alessia Russo this tournament, it feels like waifu infidelity to sing her praises the way I did for Laure Boulleau, or indeed Louisa Necib who also played for France around the same time.

According to the ONS, 2.2% of the UK population identify as lesbian, gay or bisexual. 30% of the England women's squad are openly gay. ~0.025% of male professional footballers are openly gay, namely Jake Daniels. It should be fairly uncontroversial to suggest that women's football is very gay and men's football is, if not overtly homophobic, then certainly quite backwards when it comes to LGBT+ inclusion.

I refer you to the episode of Phoenix Nights with the comedy night, and Brian Potter heckling the alternative comedian: "Tell us a joke we know!"

For some people, comedy is not about transgression but rather the exact opposite. This is why Mrs Brown's Boys is successful, despite being made 40 years later than you would expect from looking at it. It's like a nostalgic return to a time that can only be described in terms I reject for being nauseatingly patronising: comforting, reassuring, easy to understand. You don't need to think. If someone told me my hobbies were like that, I would kick them in the bollocks, but not everyone is like me and some people really do just love to hear the same joke in the charts every Christmas.

>How easy (and cheap) is it to learn to shoot in this country?

Relatively easy and cheap.

If you want to start with air rifles, you can just go out and buy one. No license is required, but you will need to present photo ID. A basic air rifle outfit starts at about £200 with all the gubbins you'll need and a tin of 500 pellets costs about £8. There are loads of air rifle clubs shooting a variety of disciplines; the most popular discipline is called Field Target, which is a bit like a cross between simulated hunting and mini golf. Most air rifle clubs are just a portakabin on a spare field and membership starts at as little as £20 per year.

Proper rifles are slightly more of a faff, but it's not prohibitive by any means. Google for your local club and get in touch. They'll sometimes have open evenings or taster sessions, but it's often just a case of "come down on Thursday night and have a go". It's effectively a legal requirement to be an active member of a club before you can get a firearms license, so practically all clubs have a selection of guns that new and prospective members can use on club premises. Clubs are legally required to provide full safety training for new members.

If you decide to join, you'll need two forms of ID and a character reference; the club will submit your details to the police for a background check to make sure you aren't a nutter or a daft militant wog. Club fees are typically £100 to £300 per year depending on the level of facilities on offer. Cheap rimfire ammunition for practice costs about 10p per cartridge. If you want to buy your own rifle, the club licensing secretary will be able to walk you through the paperwork to apply for a Firearms Certificate. A basic rifle starts at about £400.

And they are. All of them will wash your clothes. A fact that no multitude of fancy features can belie.

You generally can't go wrong with spending £500 on whatever brand-name washing machine they have on sale that week.

I would stick to trusted names like Bosch or Samsung (personally, I would buy Bosch only), and you should shop in the £500 price range, or go for a machine whose original price was around that. There are machines for 250-280 quid which will get the job done, but if you really want a washing machine that'll last ten to fifteen years without major repairs, that's not what I would go for.

I've got a Bosch washing machine that was 400 quid when I bought it more than ten years ago, and it hasn't given me any trouble, besides needing the motor's brushes changed last year. Compared to other machines, it's still built like a tank.

I've never really got this. I've had more than enough Lynx Africa gift sets off a distant aunt or grandma over the years to know what it smells like, and it's nowhere near as awful as people are always saying. It smells very sweet and pleasant to me. Not classy or anything, but it's hardly offensive.

I caught one of my exes out being a snob actually when I wore some and she complimented it. Albeit that was mixed in with Hugo Boss aftershave, but still. Now, there's a scent you can't go wrong with.

The Lynx stereotype is based on the assumption that if some is good, then more must be better. And that not washing and wearing clean clothes can be counteracted by applying even more of it, like some kind of plague doctor miasma-theory logic.

Applied sparingly and using a proper anti-perspirant along with it, it's perfectly passable.

Don't be these guys, basically:

Do they still do those samples in magazines such as GQ where there's a thick page with the long edge folded over, and unpeeling it releases the smell? do they even still do GQ

Anyway I quite like FCUK Friction for something light and everyday, or Paul Smith Men if you want something stronger. It stinks of Parma Violets when you first blast it on, but lingers on sandalwood. Also, don't forget Cool Water, it's crisp and classic. Sometimes the old stuff endures.

Honestly lads, I reckon being The Kind Of Bloke who actually even knows about more than one type of aftershave is enough to give a woman suspicious feelings about you. You're supposed to have The One You Use and that's that.

There are simply different rules of fashion hygiene and such for men. You have to know how to look after yourself, but if you start crossing into /poof/ territory, it's every bit as much of a red flag to most women as if you wore the same curry stained footy shirt and trackies every day of the week.

Joop Go costs about £15 for 100ml and it is nice enough if you want to spray a little bit on before going to work or something, but it's not the kind of thing you'd use for a night out or on a date. Stay away from Joop Homme because it's shite.

If you really don't know what you're doing stick with something that's probably seen as basic but will do the job, along the likes of Armani Code, Boss, possibly even Davidoff Cool Water although I'd put that in the same Category as Joop Go. There's also Paco Rabanne One Million but I think that's got a bit of a Lynx Africa reputation but it does actually smell alright if you don't bathe in it.

Once or twice a year Boots will have a clearout where they massively reduce fragrances and other gift sets. It's some time after Christmas, although this year it was around May. That's a good time to dabble; if you keep an eye on HUKD you can usually find out when this is happening before everything sells out.

I do have a point. You're just bumsore because you know I'm right.

The lads who can pull the most effectively don't waste time worrying about what aftershave they are wearing. It's there to stop you smelling of BO, it's not a magic pheremone potion to make women fall for you. You're simply overthinking it. None of them are actively bad, because they wouldn't be on the market if they smelled like horse piss, would they?

Price doesn't necessarily dictate how nice something smells, it's more about how long that smell actually lasts.

The nicest I've ever smelled is when I was given a bunch of Molton Brown soap and shower gel as a present. It nicely lingers on you without ever being overpowering, but you're generally talking £25 for a £300ml bottle of shower gel unless it's on offer so I'm not prepared to fork out that much for it.

More expensive colognes usually offer more complexity.

For example, when I was a teenlad, I often used Denim after shave. Because it was five to ten quid a bottle, which was affordable on my teenlad finances. But when I smell it now, its scent is best described as simplistic. You just wouldn't put it in the £30 to £40 category because you know what those smell like.

If you just want something to mask your stink, any bargain bin cologne from Boots will do. But if you really care about what you smell like and want your cologne to accentuate your personality, then you shouldn't go below £30 per bottle.

Probably a bit like watch enthusiasm. If all you want is a timepiece which reliably tells the time and nothing else, then a £10 drop-shipped Chinese quartz watch will be more than enough for you.

Also, women do notice when a lad takes care of himself and invests in good grooming. Yes, somewhere deep down, the scruffy lad who can't be arsed is a fantasy of many women, but many of them will be more drawn to somebody who knows the value of a nice shirt, a clean shaven face or a well groomed beard, and all the things that go along with that.

It only gets a bit much when you use skin moisturiser or makeup. Or when your shoe collection starts to rival hers.

Horses for courses, naturally, so if you want to snag a particularly classy woman I suppose you have to be a bit more debonair. But when we're talking about some hypothetical Average Woman I would say there's a fine balance to be struck.

You have to have a base-line level of that typical "rugged" kind of masculinity, in my experience. I mean it facetiously but also genuinely when I say this, but my feeling is you can probably get into a lot of bird's knickers more easily by demonstrating you can reverse bay park, than by wearing nice aftershave. You know what I mean? To be attractive to real life women, I think it goes a lot further if you subtly give the impression of being able to confidently assemble flat-pack furniture without needing help than if you dress immaculately. You need a level of subtle, concealed complexity, like being passionate about cooking or something like that, so that a woman feels like they're getting to know a "real you" most people don't see as much of; not a cultivated image of being "cultured" up-front.

There's a bare minimum of grooming and self-care that goes along with it, of course like trimming your bollocks. I will die on this hill. but as soon as you start sincerely saying sentences like "if you want your cologne to accentuate your personality", I think you are at least getting very close to fanny-drying territory, for most women.

I forgot to add; the entire post that sparked this discussion was rebuked with "you can't trust the opinions of women", but that's what got me thinking. Because whether we would admit it or not, the approval of women, and subsequently the ability to get our dick wet, is the only thing motivating any of us to do anything. If it weren't for that we'd all be completely content to sit about in the same pair of pants for three weeks at a time subsisting on nothing but Pot Noodle and Twixes. You can lie to yourself that this isn't true and that you do things for their own sake, but you are lying to yourself.

I don't know, lad. I'd say a lot of things ultimately boil down to seeking the validation of other men.

If we go back to being an enthusiast about cologne then, when you've reached that level, it's other enthusiasts you're hoping to seek the approval of. It's like the scene from American Psycho with the business cards. Yeah, a woman might say you smell nice but is she really going to pick up on all of the complex ingredients you've painstakingly sought out. When it comes to watches a woman might recognise that a Rolex is expensive, but it's your fellow man you're hoping will say "nice watch" when you wear your Jaeger-LeCoultre.

You don't really care about the opinion of women. You don't trust their judgement, deep down. Their needs are simple. The main reason you want to attract women is so you can show off to other men with your prowess. That's what it boils down to. I've seen enough terrible pissing contests on here about sex and dating to know what ultimately matters is being able to talk about women as a woman enthusiast just like the aforementioned enthusiasts do with their fields of interest.

Don't take this as a personal attack or anything, but every time I hear/see someone use this term, it reads to me as:

But that then comes full circle when you consider that a good number of women (and I know I'm willfully veering into the most worn-out clichés here) are partial to a man of status. Status isn't just conveyed by how much fanny you get, it's also the approval of other blokes. Or some other way in which you signify yourself as a leader of the pack. Which then gets you into a lot more women's knickers.

I agree that there's a difference between being a cultured bloke and a dandy poof. Women tend to look at the whole picture in a way we just can't comprehend. And if you're just obsessed with your appearance and that's all there is about you, then you won't land with many women. Maybe you'll have a shallow fling with a 20 year old who can barely string two sentences together, but it's not how you are going to become a hot ticket.

For some reason people laugh at me when I point out the increasingly-obvious reality that Big Tech engineers aren't super-smart and super-capable but merely repeating a pattern of "success looks like me" that started with some folk that struck it lucky when they started the company.

Companies like Facebook and Twitter are scratching their heads about why they're not hitting their hiring goals and thinking the solution is to just offer even more money. A lot of decent companies will spend 2 hours interviewing a candidate and can close out a hire within 24 hours. Meanwhile, the companies with 12-stage hiring processes (which, incidentally, many of the people actually doing the hiring did not undergo and wouldn't pass if they tried) aren't thinking that maybe that might be the obstacle.

So many of these organisations, and the people working for them, are miserable failures of the Jurassic Park test.

Self confidence is very much the foundation upon which the rest of the house is built.

After that I think it's far more about not having negative traits than it is about having lots of positive traits. What the chronics all seem to have in common is that they have some kind of glaring neurosis or other that will instantly thwart their chances.

Thus it stands to reason, you don't need to smell like a millionaire, you just need to not smell like pizza grease and dried cum.

I like how all the headlines are like "England wins Euro 2022!" but the caveat that it was the women's Euro still has to lurk somewhere afterwards.

No matter how much of a modern, 21st century fisherperson you might be, you can't hide from the truth, and the truth is, England haven't won Euro 2022. They've won the Women's Euro 2022. Which is different, because it's the women's. Not the real one.

There isn't a men's Euro 2022, though, so technically you can do it. I remember getting angry when people said England won the World Cup in 2003. It wasn't the real World Cup; it was the Rugby World Cup. This is less offensive to me than that was.

You've got to appreciate it for what it is. The level of skill is nowhere near the same but there's generally going to be little to no diving and all of the other shit that's off-putting about the men's game.

I also think that one issue is the 1966 World Cup win was so cinematic. Everyone remembers, "Some people are on the pitch. They think it's all over. (Goal). It is now!" in the absolute closing seconds of the match. You couldn't write a better climax than that. If the England men had won last year's Euros on a penalty shoot-out, would that go down in history in the same way? Absolutely not. What if we won 1-0 with a goal in the 60th minute? Yawn. I can't see England ever winning a tournament in as exciting a fashion as 1966 even if we win everything forever from now on.

The fact that women's football is, culturally, just not the same is also an issue, but that's fine. I'd still rather celebrate a women's Euros win than a men's cricket world cup or record-breaking high jump. There are much less exciting sporting wins that the media could hype equally.

I'm honestly surprised - there was box to box play, a lot of attempts, cracking pace and lots of physicality, top enthusiasm and heart, and some absolutely ridiculous timewasting antics which were el fantastico. Watching the girls trying to sneak a peek/outright steal that piece of paper floating around the German team after the 2-1 scoreline was banter. I didn't really care about it before but I'll be watching international women's football from now on, and some Newcastle women's games if there's nowt else on.

>>452951
I'm on the edge of this. On the one hand, Baddiel and the lads kicked a tin down the road when they linked the men's world cup and the men's euros, but ultimately the song is inextricably tied to that tournament. On the other hand, we were hosting and we beat the Germans in extra time. It would be much easier to have a navel gazing discussion about this cultural phenomenon if people weren't so ready to get up in arms about the idea of it being about women rather than a specific tournament - plus don't we usually cancel people who do blackface, instead of sing their songs as national anthem mk2 (sorry, I couldn't resist that shitpostpoint).

If we had hosted and won the Olympics in the 60's and someone wrote a song about that, and then we eventually won it 20 years later, it wouldn't matter jack shit if 90% of the medals were won by women - it's about the tournament, not the gender of the competitors.

Can we just do 'Sweet Lioness' or something, like a song for the women? Three Lions is inextricably linked with the men's tournament and it's still not entirely home until the men win it. Might as well make Jane Bond the next 007 instead of propping up Lara Croft by making her films good enough to have the same gravitas.

Using the phrase "twitter tier clapback" makes me think we're looking at a room temperature IQ here. Cunts who moan about Twitter, but are without failthe first ones to bring it up, should be made to live on that island in Scotland the RAF practices bombing runs on.

For the record, if I were still capable of feeling anything approaching a positive emotion, last night's Euros win would have elicited said feelings. Ninety-thousand people in Wembley completely off their heads with joy, everything it means for women's and girl's sports, really sad Germans; all brilliant.

Nice one.

I haven't had Twitter since 2012. I realised all I'd done on it for two years was liveblog Young Voters Question Time to exactly no one, flirted with some girls I met on Omegle who lived at the other end of the country and followed hundreds of accounts I realised I didn't care a jot about. Then I binned it off, probably about a year after I'd done the same with Facebook. The only times I'm on Twitter these days is to check out @RingtoneBangers, which I do have pinned, I'll admit, or watch something horrible Bellingcat have linked to. Technically I think I might still have a Bebo account, but maybe Justin Timberlake kicked me off a few years back, I can't honestly say.

Now, if I ever find you in real life and you're this annoying I will vomit into your mouth and hold your jaw together until you are forced to swallow my sick, so don't say you haven't been warned.

He's the latest sentimental news story. He's a 12-year-old who was playing at home, then something happened but I don't know what, and he had to go to hospital in a grisly coma. Doctors have said he's completely braindead and they should switch off the life support machine. His parents, understandably, don't want to do this, and they're asking for time for him to get better, because I assume he has improved a little bit since being hooked up to the machines. But doctors are doing the usual KILL HIM LMAO and lawyers and judges are ruling YES LOL and so now we have an ongoing news story in which heartless experts are arguing with sentimental rubberneckers and grief tourists, and the news stories write themselves. It's a sad story, and I would be happy for him to be left on life support for another month, say, if nobody else needs it, but then the parents would have the problem of everyone counting down to the deliberate death of their child, and I could understand they might not enjoy that any more than they're enjoying the current tragedy, unless something magically unlikely happens.

As you said, that about sums it up. Another tragic sob story about a doomed child that everybody can have a teary about.

He was attempting the Blackout Challenge, which is apparently another Tiktok fad, where youngsters "are encouraged to hold their breath until they pass out due to a lack of oxygen. It can also be referred to as the "choking challenge" or the "pass-out challenge".

>they're asking for time for him to get better, because I assume he has improved a little bit since being hooked up to the machines

Unfortunately that's not the case - according to court documents, he has lost more than 10kg of body weight and his organs are beginning to fail. His parents have chosen to believe that the medics responsible for his care are deliberately starving him, rather than accepting the fact that he is brain dead, any signs of life he does have are being sustained by machines and the current treatment is merely delaying the inevitable. His dead, decaying brain is poisoning the rest of his body.

Tough one, that. At age 12 and with no prior health problems, the lad probably had no living will that could have specified what he would have wanted to happen to him.

I've got a signed living will that I've given to my mum, our family doctor and sent to the NHS, detailing that I do not want artificial life support if I am in a critical state where two medical experts agree independently of each other that there is no hope that I will ever recover.

Without this, doctors and courts have to consider and follow the presumed will of the patient. Generally, it is assumed in law that a patient wants to live, even if they cannot expressly say so. Which is why normally, nobody will shut off your life support. But if your condition is hopeless, you're in complete agony and you're basically only waiting for certain death, then courts can assume even against the will of parents or relatives that you no longer want to live under these circumstances.

The problem is obviously that it can take a very long time until a court reaches that decision, which then may or may not be overturned, prolonging your suffering yet again. And to prevent all this, my instructions are to just let me go.

In reality a lot of that stuff is really irrelevant. Medical workers are generally trained to assess a person's capacity for independent, informed decision making, and in the absence of that capacity they decide for you based on your best interests- i.e remaining alive. To do so is their responsibility- It's not about what you want, it's about their duty of care, to not do so is an act of negligence for a doctor or nurse.

For example, if you try kill yourself, they have to intervene to save you, no matter how clear it is you didn't want to be alive- In such a case they have to presume you are irrational and temporarily lacking capacity to make informed decisions.

With kids that means doctors have to toe a line between listening to the parents, and acting in the kid's best interest; for obvious reasons, kids are often lacking in the ability to make informed decisions, and their guardian is usually the stand in for that. But what if the parent is irrational, either through stupidity or malice, and doesn't recognise their child's best interest?

Safeguarding rules are an ethical maze for this reason; but generally in the NHS and with British medics in general, the medics have the power to intervene. It's rare they have to go so far, but there are guidelines for restraining/detaining patients who refuse treatment or whatever.

Anyway all that is a bit of a tangent. This is more a case where the doctors recognise there's nothing to be done, and the won't continue to waste time and resources when it's pointless to do so, but the family and lawyers are tying their hands. Ordinarily no sensible medical professional would keep you hooked up to the the life glug unless there was a genuine prospect of recovery.

That's what involuntary admission is for. It's assumed that your sense of judgement is at least temporarily impaired, and that you don't really want to die. Believe me, we've been through that whole ordeal with a relative on suicide watch. It can be truly heartbreaking. Luckily, our relative has made somewhat of a recovery. At least she's drugged up enough now with antipsychotic meds to stop those thoughts.

>Ordinarily no sensible medical professional would keep you hooked up to the the life glug unless there was a genuine prospect of recovery.

Yes, but again, because that will end the patient's life, you can't just do that as a doctor. You do not get to make decisions that will actively cause the patient's death, even under those circumstances. That's why courts are in the loop.

I've always preferred subtitles in games, so I can skim through what they're saying without listening to the voice actor take forever labouring over it while their uncanny valley virtual puppet mouths along. (Although weirdly, I prefer there to still be voice acting, if only because it prevents the writers getting too indulgent. The opposite end of the spectrum with old cRPGs where they dump walls of text on you is just as tedious.)

But I don't get it with TV, I really don't. The explanation she gives there doesn't hold up for TV, you only get a line or two at a time so you can't just skip ahead for more than a few seconds. For me, that kind of thing is why I'll listen to podcasts or those YouTube videos with nothing but stock images, so I'm not missing anything when my attention is elsewhere- But why the fuck would I want to watch a film or TV show without paying attention to what's actually on screen?

People are just devolving I swear.

I bought a watermelon from the supermarket, and I am overcome with perplexity: where do watermelons grow? Are there giant trees somewhere, their branches sagging under the weight of dozens of full-sized watermelons? Do watermelons fall off the branches and splash everywhere? Or do they grow on the ground? How many watermelons to a watermelon plant?

I know I could look this up myself, but I am too ashamed to admit to a search engine that I don't know this. I have already caught myself thinking, "They definitely grow above ground or they would be vegetables"; I can't handle any more shame on this topic.

Watermelons originated in the Southeast Mediterranean and North Africa. They were cultivated as early as 5000 years ago.

Their seeds were brought over to North America by African slaves. And contrary to more recent racist stereotypes, watermelons actually became a positive symbol of freedom and slave liberation in the second half of the 19th century.

I resolutely only ever fill up £20 at a time, regardless how much fuel it puts in. Ever since I've started driving, £20 is the amount it takes to go from the red line to the half-tank mark, and if I keep on stubbornly insisting that's still the case, it will be. Fuel prices are a social construct.

Anyway you missed the worst of it, couple weeks back it was near enough two quid a litre. Right now I'm seeing £1.75 most places and that feels like a blessing. Hopefully it continues to settle. I can just about cope with the £1.30-1.50 levels it was at before that, but this is absurd.

- Members of the public see him behind the counter and start shouting his catchphrases at him.
- He hugs someone with learning difficulties.

YouTubers are all whores. That's how they make their money. In Sharla's video where she admits that she's involved with Chris from Abroad in Japan, she answers other questions too, and someone asked her if she was a vegetarian. She said she used to be and was a big supporter of it, but she stopped because it was "affecting her work". Japanese restaurants will hire YouTubers to promote their food, and when they found out she didn't want any of their fish or.pork, they kept deciding to hire other people who would be willing to actually eat the food, understandably. So in the end she fucked off her personal convictions and hopped on Chris's meat, I mean meat in general, so she could continue being a professional shill who doesn't have a real job. And this is Sharla, who doesn't seem to be especially soulless or evil. LadBaby would deny climate change for his good friends at Royal Dutch Shell without a second thought.

That describes about 93 percent of all youtubers.

I have some respect for somebody who decides to do youtube fulltime after a successful career in whatever field, which denotes them as an actual expert in what they are talking about. Or people who indeed keep their day jobs and have a youtube channel on the side to fill up their free time. But some 20something who can't be arsed to do anything real for a career or living and gets paid shedloads by companies to promote their products by basically talking to their camera from their bedroom is just a sign of capitalism's true decadence.

It's Kiwi Farms, everyone there is just as bananas as the most bizarre people they document. If you spent your free time meticulously documenting everything the local mad-tramp did people would tell you to get a life, but if it's on the internet there's a big forum where you can hang out with all the other mad-tramp watchers and share notes so it's alright, I guess.

There are definitely reasons to be sceptical about many of the claims around Battersbee and it doesn't appear Dancer was an especially... balanced mother prior to whatever really happened, but a photo of a ten year old in tracksuit bottoms is hardly "paedobait", you're right. There is more substance further down, but at a certain point I realised I didn't actually give a shit and stopped reading entirely.

This is like in Gone Girl when Ben Affleck is encouraged to smile for the cameras even though his wife is missing, and then when he forces a smile they use that to pin it on him.

Leave the woman alone you psycho.

It's also the exact same bollocks as the Yanks have been using to "prove" whatever school shootings are fake, if they catch the parents smiling at any point.

Exactly. She was walking in one direction then turned 90°. She thought she was obscured from view by the sign.

We needn't discuss the merits of that because she smiled after rounding the sign and her body was facing the cameras, not before.

Private investigator? Red team security consultant? GCHQ are constantly trying to recruit anyone with a maths degree or fluency in Mandarin in a way that seems sort of desperate, but you might regard mass surveillance on behalf of the British Government to be a bit evil.

I don't like my steam name any more, and I have thought of a better one, but I've left it as what it is for so long, and it's at the point that several real life acquaintances call me it because we met through playing in a clan etc, that it would look weird if I suddenly changed it, and I'd have to ask them all to start using my new name, so I feel far too self conscious to actually change it.

Its a bit like if you had a nickname at school that people still call you now. You just have to live with it, don't you. You can't change it.

I started changing mine quite regularly at the end of last year, but I think my current one's settled after an American in a game I was playing said "*Steam Handle* is the best name I've ever seen, man, that's great". I've final joined the halls of all time great usernames, alongside Justin Fected and Banal Play. But the weird thing was that the game I met that American in was Fallout 2...

I would probably do that. Although using the word at all is the strange thing. I assume you went in the same 4chan /sp/ thread that I did, rather than just visiting the Bad News Website That Must Not Be Named but is clearly worse than 4chan, and so you will know a lot of people there had never seen the word "clunge" before.

They might also have censored it to entice people into clicking and finding out what the mystery "c****e" word was. I always get really annoyed when the BBC website has a news story like "Beyonce faces criticism over use of slur" and I click the story purely to see which slur she used, and they refuse to say in the article. If I remember correctly, it was "spazzing".

I haven't visited 4chan in years. I've been browsing a few news sites to see what's happening with Giggsy; the type of person who names a file attached to an email "blackmail" is clearly big brained, but I guess we all knew that from when he tried suing the internet years ago.

At the risk of sounding sexist, maybe it should be required to include semi-nude pictures on your tinder profile. Nothing pornographic, just something to give a clear idea what somebody would be getting themselves into. After all, whoever you hope to attract is probably going to see you naked at some point. Especially if you're really only on tinder looking for a shag.

Listen I don't give a fuck what you two are on about, why is it so hot again? I thought we were done with this.

I've made the terrible mistake of having several beers when I don't have the requisite drugs to go with it. How do you buy drugs nowadays? Do you just go on Snapchat and search "cocaine" or something? I'm out of the loop.

Ahh, fuck all this. Everything is bollocks.

I would have no problem with that. I gained a stone and a half of stomach fat during the whole corona what-have-you that I have yet to shed again and which doesn't look flattering in pictures, but I am not ashamed of it in any way, and if that means I am unattractive to a lass, then she can just fuck off.

You're not far off, dealers do post deals and their gear on Snapchat now.

The only way I know to get drugs on the internet without first sourcing a real life dealer is through the dark web, but it's a right chew on, and obviously you have to wait longer.

Can you really get recreational quantities of drugs on the dark web?

The dark markets are basically eBay for drugs. Not only can you buy two pingers or a quarter of weed, you can buy it from a seller with 99.8% positive feedback and a money-back guarantee. A lot of the sellers are UK-based and offer next day delivery.

It's a bit of a ballache to figure out how to use Tor Browser Bundle and how to buy cryptocurrency safely, but there are plenty of guides available. Once you have figured it out, you'll never have to wait in a McDonalds carpark for some gobshite who has been saying "yeah, I'm just around the corner, I'll be there in a minute" for the last two hours.
