/b/437886 Poverty Protips
Due to various poorly timed low-IQ schemes collapsing thanks to Based Virus I got what I deserved and have been catapulted from posh cunt to getting £525.2 a month without any significant savings.

Now I think I have it somewhat under control by simply not going out and learning to cook poorly at home - but I realized doing my grocery shopping that I lack any good sense on what to buy and what's price efficient. Can some protips be shared here anonymously for idiots like me?

One thing I can contribute, which may be common sense again, is that I had never realized my broadband/phone contracts were negotiable. Apparently if you call and whine a bit the call center lad has the authority to give you a discount.

I actually removed telly from my life a few years ago due to autism, but that reminds me - how to ebay shit efficiently?

Like I have a 32" tv that's displaying stuff with some problems sitting in a box and taking up space, because if I tried to sell it the shipping would probably cost more than the TV and well no one I know wanted it.

Two pairs of socks and a jumper before you decide to put the heating on.
Pay as you go phone with limited use (proper PAYG not these £10 a month for X calls/texts/data).
Library/free wifi for internet.
Radio and DVDs instead of TV license and Netflix.
Turn off your fridge freezer or atleast use it only seasonally (hang your milk out the window).
Charity shop clothes and a sewing kit.

You generally get to learn the cheaper places to shop and come to notice some of the pricing tricks supermarkets use to fleece your wallet. Always check the price by weight before picking up the promoted items 'on offer'. Don't be afraid to use the weighing scales to compare fresh fruit and veg with the packaged varieties.

These days it's not poverty, but comparative poverty. Atleast where I'm from - though i'm outside of the major population densities so i might have it easier.

You can list as "collection only" on ebay. If the TV has problems though, I'd recommend using gumtree instead because ebay has the dispute system which almost always favours the buyer. If someone picks up your dodgy TV, then cries to ebay about it not being perfect, chances are you'll lose your money and the TV.

If you have an Aldi or Lidl nearby, shop there - it's decent quality and the lack of expensive branded products makes it hard to overspend.

Eat a decent breakfast, because you can set yourself up for the day with something cheap and filling like porridge or toast.

Stock up on cheap staples. Pasta, rice, tinned tomatoes, eggs and cheese will make a meal out of anything. Plan out some cheap and simple meals and stick up a list in the kitchen - often the hardest part of cooking is just figuring out what to make.

Most local libraries are closed at the moment, but make good use of yours when it re-opens, especially in winter.

If you need to, don't be too proud to visit a food bank. You'll usually need a referral voucher, which you can get from Citizens Advice (0808 2082138, 10am - 4pm Mon - Fri). It's probably worth speaking to Citizens Advice anyway to make sure you're getting all the benefits you're entitled to and you should definitely speak to them if you've got any debts. has tons of useful information on, well, saving money - budget planning, the best deals on household utilities that sort of thing.

How crazy is it to buy a flat/house in Liverpool area as an investment?

Are there any chances of development in this area or it will stay as it is for the foreseeable future? I am quite sure it won't return to the past industry (pic very much related).

Prescot is an absolute shithole right now, but it's on the cusp of major regeneration. They're building a £20m Shakespearean theatre which is due to be completed in 2022; they're also putting £14m into a new train and bus station. You can get a modern two-bed flat for less than £80k, which I reckon is a safe bet with considerable potential upside.

I've never known an ISA to need an emergency plumber or tenants kicking out. If you're leveraging that kind of investment then you need a good wash and putting in the cupboard because you're a mug.

The domain going down is easy to deal with, I could simply run a cron job to resolve the IP every day and if it ever throws NXDOMAIN I could simply reirect e.g. to the latest IP address. The trick would be having people remember to use shedchan or whatever if britfa goes down.

If the server itself goes down / sets on fire / gets held hostage by the popo then that's a whole lot harder to deal with.

Years ago I used to archive this site with a set of basic python scripts and it wouldn't be that hard to start back up again. The problem there would be if people started using the cloned site and then a week later the real site came back up.

I guess I'd actually have to install Discord (whatever the fuck it actually is) and hash it out with the mod lads in the case of an actual TEACON1 "purpz dropped the server in a giant glass on vegan wine" situation.

I'm eyeing up a new guitar, but I feel like I shouldn't be splurging on an indulgence at a time like this. Intellectually I know it's good for the economy to be spending, but I have an instinctive sense that thrift is a virtue in hard times. I wonder if this mindset will stifle our post-COVID economic recovery, or if everyone will just forget about it and max out their credit cards.

If you have money burning a hole in your pocket, spend it on something practical. A brewing kit, an oil press, tools, a shed. It's good to have a hobby but better to have a hobby that might save you money in the future. Music is great but by the sound of it you already have at least one guitar.

I bought myself a new guitar last month, it was pretty worthwhile considering there was nothing else to do but stay at home hobbying.

Of course, as always with music gear, you move on to fancying something else almost immediately after you've got the last one. I've been getting into impulse response loaders, and I want a new amp and load box now.

Can he really hold a government of lying, cheating grifters like this to account though? Other than their own cowardice, what's to stop them just lying?
They seem to be on the precipice of discovering that the public have lives and if they throw out some good sounding lies, the fact they've no relationship with the truth won't do them any harm. The papers will scream and howl, the opposition will be furious, but if you actually talk to the average person the issue will be totally muddled in their heads.
A forensic breakdown of why the government are liars and failures has the disadvantage of being long and complicated. Lying is easy: just say "That's wrong." Even the most half-listening member of the public can remember that.

Perhaps I'm too cynical. Maybe I just want to see them try it to find out what'll happen.

>If I wasn't such an idiot I'd have got my vI love everything about this, please continue. card taken about five years sooner than I eventually did

Most lads at my school who had their cherry popped early turned into smug teenlad cunts who thought they were suddenly sex gods, and who would rub it in any chance they got that the rest of us were still virgins.

I would have had the chance at 15, met a girl on holiday who lived in Cardiff, while we lived in Essex. Our sortI love everything about this, please continue. of long distance relationship then dragged on for a few months, until her parents invited me to spend the Boxing Day weekend with them that year, but I cancelled a week before Christmas. Realistically, what 15 year old will commit to a relationship with a girl living 200 miles away. Anyway, she gave me to understand that we'd do a few naughty things together over Boxing Day. But I cancelled partly because she lived 200 miles away and I saw no point in being with a lass that I'd only ever get to see every few months, but also because I felt I wasn't ready.

In hindsight, it was a wasted chance. I then didnt get to have my first time until I was 19. Probably would have made my teen years a little easier, and just for the price of reluctantly spending one weekend in Cardiff.

Probably being 12 getting drunk at my friend's for the first time, some kind of Japanese whiskey his mum had around (she shopped at Aldi and Lidl then, you see) and cupping my hands to knock a load back. Blimey and bloody hell. It's a favourite as I like alcohol and what it can do, but it is an evil. Probably about 4 months before my first wank which was indescribable.

We tend to have a lot of repeated threads here, but I also get the feeling people don't tend to post in /emo/ unless it's a big issue.

With this in mind I suggest that we have a thread for stuff that's got you down a bit and you need to get off your chest, without it being major enough to make an entire thread devoted to it. We can also use it as a go-to for minor relationship advice, work problems, social drama, and things like that.

I'm getting very weary of how whenever you post anything online, the only responses you ever get are snarky smartarse pedants trying to subtly one-up you, even when they're agreeing, or if your original comment was meant positively. Everything always gets taken the wrong way or turned into a debate. I just want a proper conversation.

The usual answer to this would just be "go outside" but even with everything supposedly returning to "normal" it's all still a bit unappealing. I have a hard enough job rounding up a couple of mates for a pint at the best of times, let alone when you have to book in advance, give them your medical records and 5 years of address history before you're allowed in.

Get in here fatlads.

I've made an effort to properly lose weight but have stalled in the last 2 months - and it's starting to creep up. I used to lift weights 3x/week and control the diet, but I can't lift for a while until some medical stuff gets sorted. This has taken a bit of a hit on my progress - or more likely,ive used it an excuse to slack.

What's your story?

P.s. I track calories and weight using my fitness pal.

Nah m8. If you're reasonably fit, your bike is sorted and you've got a bit of sense, road cycling is gentle and almost effortless. You fall into a groove where your legs keep turning and the miles keep ticking over. It sounds bonkers, but you get to the point where you can go out for a 100 mile ride on a Sunday morning and still have loads of gas left in the tank.

Also roadie birds are much fitter than MTB birds.

While I'm not doing all this optimised, I'm trying to lose weight.
I used a site to roughly calculate how many calories I need to eat to lose x amount every week.

My weight loss has been steady, losing 400-500g a week. That was just from dieting on calories in, no binging, no urges etc. For the past 2 weeks I've been doing 30 minutes on a rowing machine with a rest day here and there. The machine itself says I've burnt around 550 calories each session.

Now I realise I've probably built up some muscle which skews the scale reading and muscle is heavier than fat, but I was expecting more of a loss. If these were to carry on with no change then even with a calorie deficit and 30mins a day on the rower I'll only be losing 400g a week.

I exercise in the morning, a hour or 2 after breakfast, then have small lunch an hour or 2 after. Then have my dinner around 4-5pm.

The question that I'm getting to lads is. Once my muscle is built up, will my weight loss (on the scales) increase or is the fact I exercise in the day before having dinner just making my body take on the calories burnt so to speak, limiting my weight loss?

I'm not some gymrat or an exercise enthusiast so apologies if this is a simple or stupid question.

Muscles need more energy to be maintained than fat, so you will burn more calories with more muscle. There is a balance point between eating too much to feed your muscles and not losing weight, and eating too little and losing muscle gains, but you will find that yourself.

The increased muscle will increase your metabolism more than the same weight of fat.

You should consider water retention when losing weight. Which can throw you off by up to 2 kg this is an important factor to consider. You can feel like you are making no progress for weeks and then suddenly drop a KG overnight.

Thank fuck for that.
I have looked around much of the internet, and there's nowhere like home.
I shall put the kettle on.

The cut in stamp duty has opened the door for me to be able to buy a flat in near the city for myself -so long as I borrow 2k from my parents and use help to buy. I looked at what that really means which is that I can afford a small flat in Kingston by the sewage works with 2 hours commuting everyday.

Lads, is it still worth it? Yeah, my money isn't magically disappearing every month but my quality of life would be worse and, at 30, I will likely look to move in a few years with some bird. Still, there's a money factor involved so I've been fretting all week. Should I keep looking into this or just forget about it?

It's always a good time to buy your own place if you can get the funds together and deal with the 6 months+ heartache it all tends to take. If your parents are able to help you, then take that help; most of us don't get it and you and they are lucky to be able to do it.

Commuting is rapidly going out of fashion. Depends on what job you're in, of course, but I think the homeworking/flexible hours thing is here to stay.

Overall, what's your favourite fruit? I have a couple of oranges in the evening with a nice cup of redbush which I find pairs nicely. The sugar content is a little high but they seem durable and hassle free.

Just fishing for some ideas for variation.

I ordered some oranges from Tesco, and the ones they supplied were roughly the same size as satsumas. At least the bunch of bananas they delivered were nicely green and not immediate banana bread fodder.

I for one reckon JK Rowling's a massive twat for using her shitty books as a frame of reference for every pissing little thing she disagrees with. It really is her way of pretending she wrote the most complex social critique of all time when she wrote a book about a bespectacled nerd trying to cop off with his ginger mate's little sister. The only good to come of it is the slew of extraordinary slash fanfics imo, but I like shit films and get a good laugh out of shit poetry.

Yeah, they're essential for talking to birds so they know when you're joking, or else they will genuinely just assume you're some kind of serial killer. The British sense of humour doesn't translate well to text unless the person reading it is quite sharp.

My other half has squeezed all of the washing up liquid into a Kilner bottle.

Lads, I don't get it. I really don't get it. I mean, I gave up trying to understand women a long time ago but every now and then something happens that leaves me utterly flummoxed beyond all comprehension. Is 'WITH NOTHING TO SAY BECAUSE I AM A CUNT' still wordfiltered? I mean, she's moved it from one bottle... to another bottle. It doesn't even pour that well so you always end up using more than you intended to. I doubt anyone in the entire history of humankind has ever thought "washing up liquid in a glass bottle, nice." It's bright yellow and she also pours the cooking oil into a Kilner bottle, which she doesn't store too far away from it, so I can almost certainly guarantee at some point in the future she'll end up frying food in washing up liquid. The lid is also a faff. Just... why? Why, lads?

Can you lads please reassure me that your lasses do stupid shit like this?

It does if you've already done most of the work, and besides, you shouldn't be leaving them long enough to develop significant bacterial growth in the first place.

In fact, unless you throw away your sponge and use a new one each time (which only a mentalist would do), you're significantly more likely to be applying bacteria to your dishes than vice versa. Leaving a damp sponge full of little food particles out on the side to dry is a breeding ground.

Germophobia is not a healthy obsession. Germs are everywhere and they're mostly fine. Unilever and Johnson and Johnson have simply broken our minds.

I barely ever post there but it seems reasonably chill. Might be worth having just in case this sort of situation arises again.

That warmed my heart a bit. As well as all the lads finding various ways and means of crawling back to this small grey bolthole in the swarming fuckery that is the wider internet.

Glad to hear that purps realises that this place is actually a bit special in it's own understated way, if he reads this at some point his efforts are very much appreciated. Without wanting to be dramatic or overstate the case I reckon /emo/ may genuinely have saved a few lives. And the cunts offs can be fun as well.

Sage for soppyness.

I couldn't resist googling the top one. the conversation discussed within sounds like it could have been between two people from fucking neptune.

it's actually profoundly sad that there are people now who are essentially "on the dating scene" full time. they're so deep into it they've come up with all this sociology lingo, without ever considering if the reason nobody wants them is just that they're a cunt.

i've been on dating sites/apps a few times across the last six or seven years, and I'll always come across the same handful of faces who are still there, and always there, every time. i started fondly referring to them as "the usual suspects."
