I've been thinking about it and I'm fairly certain that football's coming home.

England have such an abundance of riches that Southgate has had to delay naming his provisional squad.

I heard it was during RE and he tried to say that the table rattling was nothing less than 'a ghostly presence' and that all present should vacate the classroom immediately (for about 5 minutes) to fetch a Priest well versed in performing exorcisms. The presence of globular ectoplasm in the classroom later on confirmed his working hypothesis

Depends on what's on that laptop.

If you keep your videos of barely legal college girls on your laptop hard drive, then that's obviously not a smart thing to do. I try to never leave anything on my laptop which could make me look like a deviant if it ever gets seized, or even just if I lose my laptop on a train.

My tastes in porn, while eclectic, are completely legal, but I still keep my collection on a 1TB external hard drive, for which I have a hiding place in my flat that not even the best coppers are likely to find.

I was just thinking that this is like the script to some low-budget B-movie. Then I discovered that Gerard McCarthy is actually an actor whose resume very much would have him starring in such a film:

I'm pretty sure most employers wouldn't even sack you if you called your own boss a nignog. Not unless they were already looking for a reason to shitcan you.

You'd get a disciplinary maybe and maybe miss out on your next payrise or something, but what we are talking about here is name calling and nothing more. The person is made to say they are sorry, is deeply embarrassed for a while, and that's it. They generally learn their lesson.

We are very much over-reacting here when we call for people to have their livelihoods ruined by such a thing. In this country maybe it's not so bad, he'll be able to sign on until people forget about it, but when they do it to people in the States getting someone sacked is as good as a death sentence.

And they say "cancel culture" isn't real.

It's not really an in-joke. We've only been posting they are knobheads since that Chris Whitty video.

He's brought his company into disrepute. I think I've encountered racist jokes everywhere I've worked, but they've never left the workplace.

I'll not pretend otherwise. It's not out of the realms of possibility to change my mind, but it would have to be something that completely opens my eyes to a perspective I haven't considered before. dolphin rape is undoubtedly a cunt's behaviour, but what cosmic scale of justice are we using to determine it as inherently worse and more unforgivable than other forms of anti-social behaviour?

The fact otherlad implied that this means I am a racist says a lot though, honestly.

>>9644

Yeah, that's a fair point.

Even so though, it's not inconceivable to see where it could have gone wrong and gotten some totally innocent third party sacked for having the same name, much like the paediatrician incident during the News of the World paedogeddon panic.

Similarly, in that case, anyone speaking out with concerns about the behaviour of the mob would be roundly condemned as a paedo sympathiser.

Probably the myriad ways in which it has negatively effected countless people's lives, from hindering or outright denying people vital employment and education to acts of genocide resulting in the deaths of millions and everything in between. Probably that "cosmic scale of justice", you contrian plonker. I also suspect I'm the otherlad of which you speak. I said those things because when someone's going out on a limb to try to make dolphin rape a non-issue I think it's entirely prudent to be suspicious of their motives.

Shame to waste a good opportunity to push the narrative though eh. I suppose they've never heard the tale of the boy who cried wolf. Or perhaps they just heard a different version called "the boy who cried dolphin rape" which has a completely different outcome where the village folk come running each and every time because dolphin rape is clearly a special case.

Enough of it is that it's irrelevant. I didn't see any media claiming the graffiti was racist, nobody here was saying it was except the one lad who was misled about the content of the graffiti.

In some cases yes, but mainly in areas where there's good data available. A natural language processing algorithm can very easily summarise a corporate financial report or describe a football match based on the Opta stats. AI can't (yet) go out and investigate a story, but it can do routine journalism of the "read something on Reuters and paraphrase it" variety. A state-of-the-art algorithm like GPT-3 can write a human-sounding opinion piece based on a headline or a prompt, but it's not clear that anyone is shameless enough to use it yet.

Window cleaner behind racist slurs of England players complains that HE is being abused

A window cleaner has admitted posting a racist comment on social media about England football players which went viral after being shared thousands of times by people sickened by his behaviour.

Shaun Drewery, owner of North Ferriby Cleaning Services, made two sickening comments after an associate posted a picture on Facebook of the England Under 17s football team alongside an image of the 1966 World Cup winning team.

Challenged by Hull Live, Drewery, who had initially claimed his phone had been stolen, admitted making the posts, referring to the young England players as 'c****'', but claimed it was 'banter' and 'flippant'. He claims he now fears for his life and moaned 'no-one deserves this abuse'.

I don’t think getting to the final is that at all. We’re now the second best team in Europe and were fourth at the previous World Cup. I’ll take that any day over the Decade of Misery that England endured from 2006 to 2016, a time during which the team looked clueless on the pitch and off it.

I have always been of the opinion that England needs to lose a group-stage match to remind them that it is actually possible to lose. They always smash the qualifying stages against Albania and San Marino, to the point where it feels to me like they forget to compete in the actual tournament. They show up under the impression that they have already won, and just trot around like it's a victory lap and that beating Iceland is a foregone conclusion. And then look what always happens.

Then I caught myself and realised I was doing two very strange things. First of all, I had magnified a drawing of an ejaculating penis and some testicles, and some swear words, and had been poring over them for an hour or so, and all in an attempt to smash dolphin rape. There was a decorator in the kitchen. What if he came in and saw what I was doing? How would I explain that this was part of my work and that I was a professional writer, not just someone who enlarged drawings of penises and testicles and sat staring at them all day on a screen while only wearing pants and a T-shirt? Would he recognise what I was doing as a form of “work”?

The second strange thing was more bewildering and more telling. For a moment, I realised that I was trying to make the word, whatever it was, look plausibly like the word “black” in my mind’s eye, so that the column I had already filed would make sense. I was every rightwing commentator’s idea of the liberal comedian, looking for evidence of prejudice where there was in fact only an ejaculating penis and some swear words and testicles. For a moment, I wanted that little corner of Manchester to be a worse place than it was, so that my joke would work better. But yes, although the word could be “black” it could also be “sock”. Or even “bag”. I amended the online edition of the column to allow for doubt, which made it weirdly funnier, relieved that on Sunday I was going to camp in a dense woodland for a week, beyond the reach of the internet, so I would have no idea what social media made of my confusion.
