Shamima Begum: Bring me home, says Bethnal Green girl who left to join Isis

On the day the caliphate suffered a mortal blow the teenage London bride of an Islamic State fighter lifted her veil. Her two infant children were dead; her husband in captivity. Nineteen years old, nine months pregnant, weak and exhausted from her escape across the desert, she nevertheless looked calm and spoke with a collected voice.

“I’m not the same silly little 15-year-old schoolgirl who ran away from Bethnal Green four years ago,” she told me. “And I don’t regret coming here.”

With those words and the act of lifting her niqab, a mystery ended. The girl sitting before me, alone in a teeming Syrian refugee camp of 39,000 people where she is registered as No 28850, was Shamima Begum, the only known survivor of the three schoolgirls from Bethnal Green Academy whose fate has been unknown at home since they fled Britain together in 2015 to join Islamic State.

Ms Begum may have reached comparative safety, yet she chastised herself for leaving the last Isis territory as Kurd forces, backed by the West, closed in.

“I was weak,” she told me of her flight from the battle in Baghuz, with something akin to remorse. “I could not endure the suffering and hardship that staying on the battlefield involved. But I was also frightened that the child I am about to give birth to would die like my other children if I stayed on. So I fled the caliphate. Now all I want to do is come home to Britain.”

Should someone who quite clearly doesn't regret going to join ISIS and is still sympathetic to their plight be allowed back in this country? Then again, she'd already been 'radicalised' by those closest to her in this country.

There are no public gatherings, limited crowds in cities and shopping centres, and low passenger loads on public transport. Fewer travellers through airports make it even harder to hide in plain sight than it already was, it's just not worth the effort right now.

>Shamima Begum, who left Britain as a schoolgirl to join Islamic State in Syria, remains a serious threat to national security and should be deprived of her UK citizenship, the supreme court has been told.

>Extracts of MI5 assessments of the dangers posed by the return of those who joined Isis were read out at the start of a two-day hearing challenging the decision to revoke Begum’s citizenship and refuse her leave to enter the UK.

Why grow your clitoris?

[/I]Two reasons seem to be of greatest interest: to make it easier to find by the owner or partner and to make it easier to stimulate. Some want to orgasm quicker, some want stronger orgasms, and a few just want to be able to orgasm. Finding that tiny sensitive organ can be a serious matter because about half range from rice grain to small pea size – most of the remainder are no larger than a corn kernel (about ¼ inch). Many women have never seen their clits because they are simply too small and buried under or in other tissue – another reason to enlarge your clit. A few want a “mini-penis” that can be stroked similarly to an intact penis. The good news is you can grow a much larger clitoris and you can do it reasonably quickly.[/I]

There's a lot that could be said here. In general I don't measure a large group of people, or an organisation of some kind, by the worst representation of the group. I'm aware that the first things that pop into the mind of many secularists when they hear the word Catholic, is financial corruption, and child rape, but It's not really something that I think about or have experienced. I've been a member of a handful of churches throughout my life, and it just hasn't been relevant to me or anyone I know for that matter.

When I hear and read about these crimes, it disgusts me, the same way I felt disgusted to find out about how China's Xi Jinping has overseen the authoritarian takeover of Hong Kong's laws, and the enslavement of over one million Uyghurs. There's nothing I can really do about these large structures tilting into corruption though, except talking honestly about them when people ask me, and being careful about where I distribute my finances. I haven't given money to the Catholic church for a long time, aside from donating to the soup kitchen, the food bank, and educational Catholic organisations like the Latin Mass Society. Starved from money, which the church is currently experiencing, the upper echelons will either collapse into irrelevance, or be forced to do something about the problems. Pope Francis, as much as I disagree with him in many ways, has moved in strides in this area, and for this very reason. There's a lot of information I'm omitting for the sake of brevity here, this has regularly been a topic of conversation among Catholics within my social circles for quite some time as I'm sure you can imagine. If you'd like to dip your toe into the water, your might be interested in 'Letter to a Suffering Church' by Bishop Robert Barron.

This brings me to the term traditional Catholic, avoiding theological jargon, the simplest way I can put it is like this. The traditional way of practicing the religion has been around for over a millennium and a half (more or less), largely unchanged. The Catholic church has tried to change the tradition considerably since around the 1960s, attempting to make it more progressive and approachable to the wider public. The original way of practicing the faith forces people to learn the Latin, learn the tradition, and actually practice the faith in what I would argue, is the correct way. The newer version turns the priest into the focal point, and well, I could list problems I see with it all day, but I'll just start ranting. I remember in the 80s there were a lot of guitars and pizza in these churches. Felt like more of a social club then a place of worship. Naturally attendance numbers for churches that practice the traditional way seem consistent, even rising slightly in popularity, but the newer way of practicing the mass, has seen dramatic loss of attendance over the decades. In another century I doubt the new version will even exist.

What do you think about the vow of abstinence clergymen have to take? I have a few friends who considered becoming priests but knew it just wouldn't be possible for them with that expectation, and they feel the church would experience a huge revival if priests were allowed to become family men.

I'm reading the Bhagavad Gita and I''ve been enjoying it so far. It's full of useful advice and interesting insights on how to conduct yourself in life, presented straightforwardly as a dialogue between a warrior and an avatar of the godhead. I tried reading the Bible but it didn't come across anywhere near as cogent; it was basically a load of fanciful gobbledegook.

Is there even much demand for fisherman these days? I looked into it and it turns out that only a significant portion of the elderly are getting their recommended two portions of fish a week while there's a decline every year in other demographics.

Turns out you're supposed to have two portions a week for your health which I've certainly not been doing. I should look into this but aside from baked Salmon really don't know where to start.


Well that explains your politics.

Thing is the biggest determining factor in altruism isn't wealth but community inequality and relative distance. I'd guess that all of us here would save a drowning child (and tut at anyone doesn't) but the amount of good you could do with even a modest western income is shameful. It's a tired argument but there's much more going on when we're all the global 1% and something philosophies of life continually smash into like a brick-wall because we don't operate consistently or rationally.

To return to the point, the ineffectual solutions pushed by the bourgeoisie is one thing but to call it a deliberate plan or suggest that they don't care at all is nonsense. I'm sure if there was a magic fanny-trawler wand they'd use it but the real solution is hard and with all gender politics liable to get you burned at the stake. Certainly harder still than some 'eat the rich' solution aimed at giving people bennies until they hear the call of the sea.

I'm fairly certain that was actually the point of the post you are so laboriously disagreeing with mate. Good grief.

For my own view: I wouldn't call it a stretch to say throwing all this shite out and starting with cold hard measurable quantitative inequalities like income disparity across the board, would both do a lot more to address all the soft, wishy washy inequalities that only exist qualitatively as well as be much, much easier than any of the current crop of people in charge would ever like to admit. it is not at all conspiracy talk to suggest that the ruling class of our time is committed to prevent material solutions to inequality being implemented, hence why so many meaningless gestural ones must be found.

So which is it I am doing professor, make up your mind?

This is an ailments thread on an image board mate, the entire point is to have a piss and a moan about your ailments, and you’ve gotten awfully high and mighty about the purpose of the thread pretty quickly if you think anyone is coming before seeking medical advice, and not just to complain. If you don't want a banal thread you need people to actually share interesting problems.

>This is serious
Not as serious as you would think. First time it happened doctors were concerned it could be stage 4 bladder cancer as it has a lot of shared symptoms, facing your own mortality like that is terrifying, after that kidney stones felt like a blessing.

Never heard about that before I'll ask my doctor about it next time we talk about this. Thanks

Do you have any anime recommendations?

This year I got into the habit of watching Natsume's Book of Friends before bed. I've found anime in general to be good for helping you unwide when you're otherwise entirely busy with work. Natsume seems to tick the right boxes for me in providing escapism with self-contained stories that make you think. Previously I've enjoyed Mushishi and Kino's Journey for the same reasons of relaxation.

>if anyone has other sci-fi-ish recommendations I'll take them.

The only Space one I can think of right now is "Tytania", but it's actually really disappointing, considering it's by the Legend of Galactic Heroes author.

On the other hand, "Real Drive / RD Sennou Chousashitsu" (by the same writer as Ghost in the Shell) takes a laid-back approach to Sci-Fi. It's set on an artificial island somewhere in the South Pacific, using a fully connected AR-based society which makes use of saltwater as a data storage medium. Some residents of the island have found ways to hack into this "Meta-Real" system for the purposes of pleasure-seeking and crime, and so an investigation team uses a "diver" to catch them like something out of The Lawnmower Man.
Many of the stories are self-contained but slot into an overarching narrative of social quandaries and plutocratic backstabbing. There's a lot of stuff there that would appeal to someone who is into the kind of stories that fetaured in 2000AD, for example.

I should say that another anime that I'm watching right now is Re:Zero. It does have cliché elements being an anime about a NEET transported into a fantasy world but there's an interesting idea around how fucked up it would be to live with a particular superpower.

Spoiler for what that is ruins episode 1 but I assume you will have watched it already if the above were enough: When he dies he returns to a save point. Every 3-4 episodes is him facing off against some challenge and mostly having to watch all his friends die over and over until he gets it right.

>ACCA:13-ku Kansatsu-ka (not the Insurance company) - A bright and colourful web of political intrigue in !NOTAmerica. Everyone is fucking beautiful for some reason.

I really enjoyed this. I'd say its really more a political thriller in !NOTJapan if it never formed a unitary state because you have elements that fit strongly with the past and present of Japanese monarchy and an underlying allegory to the Japanese succession debate.

I'd say Golden Kamuy is probably the best tv show running at the moment. Overall its a historical western adventure set in Hokkaido shortly after the Russo-Japanese war with plenty of comedy, cooking and learning about Japanese aboriginals mixed in.

The story follows competing groups on a hunt for hidden Ainu gold - the protagonists being a Japanese veteran and a Ainu girl with blue eyes but you slowly get a backstory for every reoccurring character. I've found myself opening up wikipedia to learn about various events described in the series which is a fascinating look at Japan's expansion into the wild Northern Islands to secure control, the short lived Republic of Ezo and Russo-Japanese strategic competition in the area.

Also to find the gold they have to use maps tattooed on people's skin. A proper good romp.

Should say that you can watch a good portion of anime for free on Crunchyroll and with adblock you don't even have to watch ads. The catalogue doesn't have everything but I'd say there's more hours of content on a free platform than you'd find on Netflix.

I thought councils were not allowed to lose money? Did I make that up entirely or is there some manner of law or prevision like that?

Anyway, one of the reasons I like more decentralisation in this country is so someone's keeping an eye on scoundrel laden councils like these. Maybe Croydon really did think they had a brilliant plan and they'd be millionaires by this time next year and never again have to rely on a drip feed of cold piss from central government, but Manchester are a complete load of bastards who've let the city centre go to pot in various ways.

I just spoke with my mother, and there is no saving her. It's the same with my father. Both of them are quite intelligent, but they are at the same time the most mindless NPCs you can imagine. With the Great Reset controlled COVID collapse, the rollout of RNA vaccines, and the New World Order's plan to kill off 90% of the population, chip us, make us give up all our property and etc. I've realized that I have to let go of the sheep in my family. My own mother, father, brother. My mother works in the British government, she is part of the deep state beurocracy here. Often going abroad and working with the European Union and the United Nations. Despite all of the material she reads on her job written by and for the elite, she is still a firm believer in "liberal democracy".

I myself have been quite lucky as I found a unicorn-tier girl with her own remote farm and I now live with her away from the city. We're now preparing for the inevitable collapse. As much as I hate it, I have to let go of my parents. I have a pregnant wife and a farm to protect. If they are too stupid to see what is going on, that's on them. I've tried to warn them. But I'll very soon have children of my own to protect. And in a collapsing world of dwindling resources and stability, I can't save them all. So, my own new family now comes first.

Once Eddie Izzard was presenting a documentary about human lineage (strange choice) and spends all the time talking about how he identifies as a Celt and how he can feel his African ancestry, and when he does a test it comes out as him being like %100 Anglo-Saxon.

Re what OP is saying, I think liberal lahdidahs are the most likely people to be able to actually go and live in the countryside and have their own plots, so assuming they survive the apocalypse none of them will have learned their lesson and will carry on running secret international paedophile rings and importing vibrant urban youths into Europe. Unless the apocalypse turns out to be the second coming of Christ, in which case they are all going to hell for being sodomites and apostates. I hope I have given you a lot to reflect on

Have you thought about why 'the NWO' might be doing this?
Have you heard about the population problem which, if not adequately addressed, threatens to starve out humanity by 2050?citation needed
Couldn't these RNA vaccines be an attempt to release our dormant DNA which the Anunaki locked away?

Have you even thought about what 'New World Order' means, in abstract?
What are you attempting to run on your farm if it isn't a new order for your world - ie your new family?

What do you propose we do about the problems humanity faces, that doesn't result in running away to a remote farm in the middle of nowhere?

Havana Syndrome couldn't have been caused by microwaves, because microwave frequencies are strongly attenuated by walls. To cause a noticeable effect from outside the building, you'd need hundreds of kilowatts of RF. That amount of energy is not subtle - anything conductive in the area would be fizzing and crackling with arcs.

I've been watching loads of foreign films recently, and I was struck by something I find quite interesting. When I watch a foreign film in a Germanic language like Dutch or German, it feels impactful to me because the intonation, tone, sentence pacing and structure of the actors feels quite similar to English, which makes their performances feel about as compelling as they would be if they were in English.

When I watch something in French, Spanish, or Italian, it often feels like a word salad of peculiar sounds that are either lacking in distinct emotions, or are over emphasising one particular emotion. Spanish and Italian are a slurry of fast paced words and French is a blur of people making "bleugh" sounds.

Is it just me or have any of you noticed the same thing? I used to think that English kind of sat "in between" Romance and Germanic languages, but I now realise it's firmly a Germanic language with a bunch of loanwords thanks to our Norman enslavement.

What's the best type of screw drive? In a perfect world, what would be the most common type?

Slotted, Philips, and Pozidrive are all obviously shite. Hex isn't great either. Square/Robertson heads seem like the best bet to me.

Torx is close to mathematically optimal. The only real down-side is that a) it's quite hard to distinguish the sizes by eye and b) it's quite easy to chew up a screw head by using an under-sized bit. It's perfect for manufacturing, but slightly annoying during servicing and repair.

I've probably had the least grief with internal hex, but it's not suitable for a lot of applications due to size constraints. External hex is still probably the best option for tough environments subject to abrasion or corrosion, but those buggers owe me a lot of knuckle skin.

"Cross-head" is an absolute shit-show, because there are so many almost-compatible standards.

Pentalobe can fuck off. Tri-point can fuck off, come back and then fuck off again.

My favourite is the Pitlock, which is the only removable security bolt I've used that is actually secure. Totally niche, but invaluable if you need it.

Internal hex for countersunk, external for when you really mean it. Though I think this is just an admission that I prefer bolts, but that's a whole other discussion.

I'll admit I've had limited strife with posidrive, I've rounded maybe two in the last decade, and I interact with them almost daily.

I think we can all agree slotted is a joke - I curse whatever backwards farmer built my house every time I find one.

I should qualify that I accept that many other solutions may be technically better, but the availability of specialist bits is a huge letdown for me. You can't really bodge a torx like you can a posi/phillips or slotted, and fiddling with often fragile driver bits is a real turn off - ironically any sort of torque applied through a torx bit will snap the bit easily. Maybe I could just buy more expensive torx bits, but fuck you - I've never once snapped a Philips bit.

They're fine if you drive them by hand and you use a proper hollow-ground screwdriver. In any other case they're absolutely fucking awful.

>I've never once snapped a Philips bit

Aye, but I bet you've rounded off plenty of the fuckers. There's a reason why they sell massive bulk boxes of PH2/PZ2 bits.

I have noticed that carpet-baggers and sex pests usually have hair, even if they are balding they tend to cling on to what they have left. There are obviously some notable exceptions, like Gary Glitter or that squeaky little feller on the youtube memes, but by and large, a man who can be arsed to shave his bonce is not a carpet-bagger.
