/b/438151 The New Adventures of Mid-Week
Now that all the excitement has died down I thought it time we redo the mid-week thread. What are you two up-to?

I've organised a date for the weekend but have come to realise that I'd better keep something of a conversation going unless I want to be stood up. This is going to be tedious. I might want to think about doing some work today as well.

Lisa Explains.jpg
I'm probably going to get called Lisa Simpson for this post but do you ever feel a bit surprised at just how much of an odd one you are in the family? Women always ask me about my relationship with my family and appear shocked that someone can be distant but I genuinely have nothing in common with them. I can get along with them on a 1-1 basis but they're all rather...common and simple. Tapped if you will.

Anyway, bit of a family gathering over the weekend that I soon found myself sitting in silence while people spoke of whatever drama toxic people have caused in their lives interspersed with empty platitudes you'd read on facebook. Ended up drinking in silence like at every family gathering and wondering if this is what married life will be like.

I feel the same way about my parents, to be frank they annoy me.
I guess I'm the odd one out but they do grate me all the time I'm around them. If I were ever to lash out or tell them to stop bothering me I'm the cunt so I never do.
I find peace in my solitude, I'm far from lonely. I just like to be alone with my thoughts. I doubt they'd understand this since they're from a different generation.

You sound like you're embarrassed by your roots more than being vexed by theirs.

I doubt EVERY conversation being had was about gossip and platitudes are an easy way to convey sentiment and can be taken at face value if your family really are that simple.

At one point, someone would have asked you what you've been working on or what you've been up to and instead of discussing it you said "nothing much" and they left you alone. Even if they don't understand what you like or what you do, if you're enthusiastic about it they'll respond positively. If they thinks it's weird ask "why is it weird?". I guarantee you their brain will stall, giving you the chance to make a comparison to something they like and continue the conversation.

All of this would require effort on your part though and I suspect you're much too jaded to make it, or perhaps you're also simple and don't have the savvy to ingratiate yourself with a gaggle of other simpletons. They do say if you can't explain something to a 5yo, you haven't fully understood it yourself.

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's been kicking off in America (again) after the police have shot a black man (again). A couple of protesters/rioters have been killed after they were driven by the police towards an alt-right militia, with this planned in advance.

The idea that someone as awkward as Starmer is thoroughly electable is pretty funny. He's in with the slimmest of chances if Bojo keeps fucking up as badly as he is now for the next 4 years, but if the Conservatives ditch him like they did May then I don't see them doing any worse than they did in 2015 when they were up against the thoroughly unelectable centrist Ed Miliband.
This isn't about his policies: It's superficial. He doesn't actually look and sound like a prime minister (The media say so now while he's got the easy job of not being the one fucking up the Coronavirus response. Let's see them say the same in 2024 when that's in the past.), and looking and sounding the part is one of the best predictors of whether or not you'll be picked to play it.

Starmer is a leader for now. Given a substantial majority, and a significant chance they'll lose it if they go to the country, the Tories aren't going anywhere soon. So in the meantime the best anyone can do is try and hold their feet to the fire. Which, incidentally, is something a prosecution barrister is generally very good at. Corbyn's "People's PMQ" was a nice idea, which worked well when his team picked the right issues for that week, which they frequently didn't.

Let's see what he does for local elections next year (assuming they happen). If his campaign game isn't great, replace him sometime in 2023 when an election is on the horizon. For now, he's doing a decent enough job of making sure the Emperor can be seen to be stark bollock naked.

I know a lot of people get upset about leaf blowers, but mine has a SUCK mode, too, and a bag that hoovers up all the leaves; if you have a big garden(s) with many trees, then it is a godsend. I have never used it in BLOW mode, but I've no doubt all my neighbours think I'm a cunt for using it.

Nah, big gardens have a billygoat. 4 gears and 16bhp. Loud in a way that a mere leaf blower can only dream of.
However, I barely use it any more, just use the mower with the brush & collector on the back, much quicker.
Still, been doing autumn gardening this weekend, so plenty of 2-stroke action. Chainsaws, hedge trimmers, brushcutter. Shoulders are pure pain.

I had to do a long car journey today and still feel a bit queasy 6 hours later. It's not Covid, I've always had a bit of car sickness which has gotten better with age but I still feel a bit unwell after a long journey with lots of bumps and stopping and starting.

Nothing on the internet seems to provide advice on what to do after a car journey. Other than detailing a rather terrifying illness where people can still have motion sickness for years after a sea voyage where they can't even go to sleep without feeling like they're still in motion.

I came down from Nottingham last week Monday for a new job. All my London mates were happy and wanted to meet up since I haven't seen them since December last year. The idea was to meet up before a full lockdown for 6 months.

I moved backed to my mum's house, and I met them. I told my mum I will stay locked in my room until next Sunday, because I went out and met my friends. They had an after-party in one of my mate's house, but I elected to not go. I don't know if that will make any difference. I only had dinner with them, but I was really put off by the restaurant. No social distancing, no masks, etc.

This is really fucked up. I looked up a few hotels and AirBnBs around me today. If I feel funny, in the next 5 days, I will be booking one of them.

This is so weird. I feel so lost. My mum is so lovely, and I never thought I would say this, but I miss the chitchat we usually have.

Fucking hell lads. I'm locked in my room with 9 - one litre vodkda bottles (from a friend who works at a company). WTF should I do?

I want to call up a hooker in a hotel tbh, and have a mad party. Shame I don't have any coke dealers in London. Is that the only thing stopping me? Jesus? I don't even know anything anymore.

Youtube thinks that I'm a Kiwi so I've been bombarded with videos fawning over Jacinda Ardern throughout their recent election period.

Oh, I'm sure she's lovely but I'm much too cynical for this. It feels like a 1997 Tony Blair has travelled to our future and now lives as a woman in New Zealand. The opposition is an absolute joke as well, just a load of memes about a hammer and sickle on the countries flag or foaming at that time she wore a headscarf.

The 16GB 3070 and 20GB 3080 have been confirmed, which should be tremendous value for dev workstations that are limited by VRAM more than training time.

Puget have done some preliminary benchmarks on the 3080 in TensorFlow and it goes toe-to-toe with the Titan RTX, which was a £2500 card. The tensor cores may be gimped, but they're still damned fast.

As the guy he was responding to I don't see anything particularly harmful about this post. It was all in the context of me/my partner's personal sexual fantasy, not a social commentary. He didn't say anything I'd particularly even disagree with- He's right that these lizard brain primal desires do need at least paying lip service to keep yourself truly happy.

I don't think the bedroom is any place for politics and that has been the viewpoint of the many fisherfolk types I've talked to from the kink scene- If you start overanalysing the stuff that makes your naughty bits tingle because you read some Dworkin or what have you, you're inevitably only going to spoil it for yourself.

But I digress. He doesn't seem to want to contest the ban so badly anyhow.

I was banned for 'ban evasion' for asking why I was banned. So I was hardly in a position to argue my defence.

If you hadn't turned up to argue my defence I would have just walked away as no one seemed amiable to even telling me what the problem was only banning me for asking.

(A good day to you Sir!)

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 am struggling to come to terms with the fact I used to be a very unpleasant person. Very spiteful, talked shit about people behind their back, engaged in gossip. I was not alone in this - my friendship group at the time all behaved like this. But in my later years I've tried to turn a new leaf, not be a judgmental prick.

I wouldn't bother, don't go looking for forgiveness from people you've wronged in the past, it's only your ego seeking approval. If they want to give you another chance that's up to them. Instead, focus on making new mates and building a healthy social circle.

I'm pretty sure everyone's a bit of a dickhead until they're about 25 or so, anyway. I wouldn't lose sleep over it.

>it sounds like the classic struggle of the id and the super ego. the super ego has a long list of by the numbers of why you should 'stick with your wife', but the id knows what rings it bell and it ain't this. The super ego might make the more sensible argument but that doesn't mean you should ignore the id, in fact most who do find they end up doing stupid shit when they are drunk that they can't really explain even to themselves why they did it.
Am I going crazy or was this really difficult to read?

Your id was probably telling you to ignore it whilst your superego was saying "pay attention".

>I tend to see it in my mirrors.
Ouch. It was from a 30 odd second clip on Youtube about facial recognition ghosts or some shit. I can't remember what I googled to find it.
Do you mean literally see with your eyes or think yourself into 'seeing' like i do with severed heads in the toilet? I've noticed a lot of my more intense dreams involve facial disfigurement and contortion. I really can't think what it means - the imidiate answer or being twofaced or of dual identity doesn't apply well to my concious self.

In my last dream, someone was trying to kill me by running me over with a regular sized car that was rigged up to be remote controlled. I imagine he was doing an evil laugh like any denizen of a hollowed-out volcano would.

I'm getting older yet remain single and therefore feel the need to step up my skincare routine. Before I end up spending tens of pounds though I'd like your advice on what you would recommend. Frankly I'm a bit lost and this could really start crowding my bathroom.

So going by google I need to pick up:
1. Specialised face wash
2. Face scrub/exfoliator
3. Moisturising balm (I assume this is different from moisturiser?)
4. One of those sonic wand gizmos
5. Face masks
6. Night cream
7. Toner
8. Stuff to put around tired eyes

It seems like there aren't any kits that cover all of the above on Amazon but I'm aware that products aren't made with mix and match in mind. Also seems like they're putting charcoal in everything now.

/fa/ put together a guide but didn't include any specific product recommendations so I'm still left scratching my head.

I went through a brief phase in my late 20s/early 30s doing two or three of the things you have mentioned. I found that diet, rest and steam room/sauna sorted out my skin better than any of these things.

I can't comment extensively as a result, but the Clinique for Men range seems to have some of what you're looking for. the face wash/scrub is good and the moisturiser does make my skin feel nice for a little while (use a tiny bit though else you look weird).

I think getting/doing all of those things is overkill, and there will be many available partners/girls who will probably find it off-putting if your skincare regimen is longer/better than theirs.

This, I said it recently in another thread but get a decent moisteriser with spf, protecting your skin from sun damage will help maintain healthy skin into your later years, and if you want you can fork out a bit more and get something with retinol in it too, as it's currently the best thing on the market for fighting wrinkles/aging skin.

At most all I'd add to that, if anything, is a face wash to use 1-2 times a week but that entirely depends on your skin I think, or a night cream as I have heard they can be good too on the whole anti-aging front.

Going from, from what I can tell, nothing to "sonic wand gizmos" is a bit drastic. Especially because if your skin doesn't react well to a product, you'll have no idea what's causing the problem if you've started using a whole bunch of stuff at once.

Personally, the only products I use daily are a cleanser and a moisturiser. I've used Cetaphil gentle cleanser for years, you can get a 473ml bottle from Amazon for a tenner (, and it lasts me a couple of months of daily use. I use a few drops of pure jojoba oil to moisturise ( It's more effective than any cream/lotion moisturiser I've tried, and cheaper than most.

Every other night I use a few drops of a retinol serum (, mostly because my dermatologist once told me it was basically the only anti-aging ingredient that wasn't 90% bullshit. Used sparingly it helps to even out skin tone and reduce signs of aging.

About every two weeks, or when I notice the pores in my T-zone are visibly clogged, I use a bentonite clay mask ( I bought 2 kilos of it a few years ago on offer for around £15, and still have plenty left. Washing the mask off is also a good way to physically exfoliate.

Mostly I use a chemical exfoliant though: a salicylic acid cream which I use around once a week ( £17 and lasts around three months.

This is just what works for me though. I would advise you to start out with a simple, non-fragranced cleanser and moisturiser, and work out what you want to do from there. And try to avoid jumping on fad products that some internet reviewer or magazine says is the magic bullet that will cure all your skin woes. It doesn't exist, and you will waste a lot of money and quite possibly damage your skin in the process.

Most importantly, as >>6280 says, a decent diet and adequate sleep will do more for your skin that anything you put on it.

Wear sunscreen. It is the only thing scientifically proven to prevent the effects of aging. When skin care products say they are proven to work it just means they have sunscreen in them.

Anyway here's wonderwall since we were all thinking about it anyway.

Bought Crusader Kings 3 due to the glowing reviews which said it was very approachable despite its complexity. I did the tutorial and I'm kind of stumped. There are comprehensive tooltips for every feature of every menu, but I struggled conquering the rest of Ireland, nevermind trying to expand through the rest of the Old World. Maybe it's one of those games that takes time to learn, but once you've got a grasp it becomes second nature, but it's easily the most complex game I've ever played.

There's a mission in Kingdom Come: Deliverance where you have to pretend to be a monk and my word is it like hitting a brick wall. It's obvious the devs wanted to show life in a monastery, and I respect their commitment, but it's not fun gameplay to go from room to room in one location and use the "wait 1 hour" option over and over. Any complaint you might make about it can be parried by pointing out the realism, but I don't play games to experience tedium. I've gone from dueling heavily armoured brigands on beautifully rendered hillsides to having a fucking bedtime in the darkest place on Earth.

Why does it matter if it's a flavour of the month game? Their twitter is still full of replies and from what I see on Twitch still quite popular, new levels are being released in a couple of weeks too. I'm sure it'll survive.

If anything, it'll be easier to get in a game.

Steam says otherwise: 46,255 players at time of posting, 59,488 peak. And that's only for Steam, of course, I know it's on PS4 and I am assuming you can buy it elsewhere for PC.

I don't always agree with what Monbiot says, but "The right preaches individualism, yet moves as a herd. The left preaches solidarity, yet atomises." is the most succinct summary of the current political landscape that I've read in some time.

It doesn't help that Scottish Labour has always been terribly run. Fat and lazy after decades of dominating Scottish politics, they took the brunt of the blame for how uninspiring the first 3 terms of the Scottish parliament were, sending a bunch of non-entities to staff it because all of their big hitters (except Dewar, who died.) wanted a real job in Westminster.
Full of genuinely pathological loathing for the SNP (It's hard to think of any English precedent. The CPGB-ML has warmer words for the Conservatives than Scottish Labour has for the SNP) they destroyed their credibility as an opposition by constantly crying wolf, and with the the stupid old "Elections are won on the centre ground, which is eternally where Blair was in 1997" axiom in mind they've traditionally attacked the SNP from the right, opposing popular policies like free tuition and prescriptions on the grounds of being "something for nothing".

Their last chance to retake power was probably 2011, which they blew spectacularly for those two reasons. They've notionally wobbled left in 2016 and will probably stay there in 2020, but as the third party they're about as relevant as the Liberal Democrats and far more institutionally dysfunctional. Scottish Labour is a talent vacuum with no policy credibility (and no big ideas) staffed and run by non-entities who are so blinded by hatred for the SNP that they'll never figure out how they were outflanked by them. And I say this as a member.
