So the gist of this is basically that someone has created a nano organism that infects people, which then just waits dormant until people get infected with a common cold, then it activates itself and waits for the cold to kill the person, then makes itself look like it did the killing.
Oh and they spread this organism by releasing it into the ionosphere which is a good 40 miles higher than jets fly.

Lads are you worried about the coronavirus?

I've purposely not read up about it. Mainly because the SARS, Swine Flu, Bird Flu and Ebola threat was over-hyped by the media. Prediction wise, I think after several months it will be contained and everyone will eventually forget about it.

What do you think?

I've never had vodka over 50% but you can by 60% gin in the UK and potcheen up to 90% (although it's as expensive as fuck).

In the states of course you can wander into any off license and walk out with a bottle of 80% grain alcohol called Everclear.

Biocidal properties of ethanol begin at approximately 15-18%, but that's only enough to kill off things like wine yeast and certain bacteria. Enveloped viruses in particular, like the coronavirus, are much more robust than that. Alcohol dissolves lipids, which make up much of a coronavirus's outer shell, but it needs to exert enough stress on the shell to really be able to break out lipid molecules, which can only be done when the ethanol concentration of your liquid reaches a certain threshold. To reliably destroy the virus in a short amount if time, you are going to need an ethanol content of more than 80 percent. IPA is even more effective than ethanol, at lower concentrations of about 75%, but IPA is much more skin irritant than ethanol, which is why most hand sanitisers are ethanol based and don't contain IPA.

I guess I'm 15 hours in now.

It is ferociously complicated. It's also the best non-Fromsoft Soulslike I've played so far, by a decent stretch. I've had far more fun with it than I did with Nioh, or The Surge, or Code Vein (or any of the 2D ones, Salt and Sanctuary, Blasphemous etc). The first hour or two is just a real hump to get started, and then beyond that point you're learning constantly and improving noticeably. Maybe I'll get sick of it later on but so far I'm not getting the grind that I got from Nioh, or the "difficulty for the sake of it" that the rest irritated me with. It's hard, and it expects you to pay attention, but it's fair.

I also met a chap on PSN called "Bradolf Pitler".

I've finally got around to trying the No Chick Strips from Iceland's vegan range. A lot of brands that try to replicate the texture of chicken with layers of layers of hydrated soya protein fuck it horribly by making it too chewy or too watery but these were spot on. In fact, they might be the best veggie chicken I've tried but they should be at that price.

/emo/23560 Minor angst and existential dread, Mk. I
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.

Everyone gets down from time to time, let's put some Sisters of Mercy on and wallow together for a while.

A nice pair of noise-isolating earbud headphones like Sennheiser CX-300 or similar, not the shitty ones you get included with a smartphone, will go a long way lad.

Not the poster you're responding too but I've got some of those and they're not much better than earplugs. It's alright if you can fall asleep to music being on a bit loud, but otherwise they don't do much for things like construction because it's the vibrations that disturb you.

Ah. Well, that is unfortunate.

When you say you're due to move out, what is stopping you doing so sooner? It's quite a good time to be flat-hunting, there are a large number of properties that have come up for long-term rent as people realise that their Airbnb flat is going to stay empty for a long time.

Not him but to me there's always been something about the grimy aesthetic of drinking tins that felt it like was best suited to those foul and sweaty midnight binges as you stoically pound can after grim-faced can while staring at a telly long set to mute and go over and over the same three memories with increasing bitterness.

Drinking out of an actual bottle, or - god forbid - a glass, feels me about as unassailably futile as pretending there's glamour and candelabra when you're drinking by candlelight.

I just think he has a very limited vision of what fiction encompasses. If I wrote an autobiography and I made a load of stuff up it would be a work of fiction but it wouldn't be any more or less believable than if I wrote the truth.

Likewise if I wrote about an imaginary fight that happened in my local pub last December it would also be a work of fiction, but it'd be entirely believable because there are often fights in my local.

> Not all fiction fits within the format of the novel.

While I'm here I might as well go full on robot moon oven and point out that not all novels are written in the first person, and that not all third person accounts are fictional.

Let's imagine that I follow you around for the day and write down everything you do, all the conversations you have, while chatting with you all the while about what you think about the things that are happening to you.

Upon reading, given the criteria of >>5137, this account is going to be quite utterly unrealistic. The focus will be on a single person, all the other characters will seem empty and not have their motivations explained, all the minor characters will only ever be seen talking to the main character or, perhaps, friends of his and the only real motivation explained will be that of the main character (as only his thoughts are revealed to the author.

Really all of this is a function of narrative, not of fiction.

Sure the point was to spell it out for people, and to do that you need examples people will understand and by definition those are simplistic and obvious.

If you record all of it, isn't going to be unrealistic at all, but it will probably be a dull meandering mess though because real life regularly is.

As soon as you start editing it down and picking parts to weave a story though you are creating a fiction. You can call that a narrative instead if you like that is just semantics.

Even if you never add anything new, it is a fiction, because you have inserted an intent.

So by your definition all (auto)biographies and memoirs are works of fiction? The idea indeed may have some merit, just interested if that's exactly what you mean.

> For a given value of believable, believability is just about how deeply you are willing to dig. If you are willing to go to the really anal layers the details at some point will be wrong

I think you're right about this. The thing about most fiction is that it's designed to be entertaining. The dull day to day that most of us experience isn't exactly exciting or entertaining so things have to be tweaked or changed to make it so.

To take an example that I know a lot about, it's always fairly obvious to me how utterly fake all computer hacking/security stuff on TV and in films is; exactly because I know what computer hacking really looks like (someone in their underwear staring at a laptop for weeks at a time, for up to 96 hours at a go, swearing a lot, drinking metric shit tons of coffee or booze, smoking a ton of fags, potentially ingesting other drugs, until eventually he somehow figures it out) and it isn't entertaining at all.

That is exactly what I mean. It might be based on a true story, but it is always 'sexed up' in some way, boring bits are cut out, it is focused in to a story. It is at that point to me a work of fiction.

It appears largethreadmodlad has also locked the previous iteration of this thread; Mark VIII it is, then.

I take perfect care of my nails. I don't bite them, I cut in the standard flat formation every 3-5 days, and scrub under them in the shower. So why the actual fuck are my cuticles bleeding? Putting the plaster over to catch the blood means I can't play my bass properly, and that pisses me off.

We read out sales from about 10 different areas every Monday to Wednesday. The best part is that most of the people doing the reading are reasonably shy or not wonderful at English. It tends to be quite enduring to stand through and I stand far away so I often don't hear anything. There are days when people read out the figures entirely wrong and we all just let it happen.

I can see the potential for 1-2 morning meetings a week but they really should be short and sweet.

There's a thing in aviation like that, where everyone gets on a conference call once a week just to read out the number of delays they've had that week and why. They're stopped because of this bollocks and I hope they never come back - they make no sense. The delays are already common knowledge and fed back to the airline's operations departments by email, movement messages, and ACARS feeds daily anyway, so these calls are, I assume, literally there to shame people, or because upper management are too lazy or thick to look at the reports.

Never organise catch-ups on a Monday. You won't have much of an idea of how your weeks going to go and therefore the whole team is so focused on not looking a dosser that they don't listen to other people. Likewise, nobody wants to do a meeting on a Friday - don't be a dick.

I don't work in programming but I do work in an industry with too many managers. What worked for me was to moan about it with other people so that when you send the email it has some weight to it without naming names. Then you convince them to make the meeting on a Tuesday afternoon when everyone is so busy that it never happens again.

I worked on a scrum team in 2005 and it was fucking awful. The entire development methodology is broken and I'm surprised it's still around now. What pissed me off the most was that anyone could call a stand-up meeting at any time, as long as that person was the team leader. Anyone else got told to wait until that cunt was ready.

In my experience Friday afternoon just after lunch is best time for a weekly meeting. Everyone can have a pint of five for lunch, meet from two to four for a coffee and doss then doss from four until half past when it's time for everyone to go home chuffed that they got away with half a day of work.

I honestly can't stand it any more.

The internet is breaking my faith in the human species and I need a break from it. Doesn't matter where you go. Chan boards? Infested with alt-right mouthbreathers. Reddit? The opposite brand of people with mind-worms so powerful they think the holodomor was a good thing. Video game sites? Corporate shills and pay-pig knuckle draggers. Obscure nerd hobby forum? Autism so powerful you can't even risk making a joke. Twitter? Let's not even go there, honestly.

Talking to randoms online has always felt like a beneficial exposure to differing ideas and opinions, but nowadays I'm starting to feel like participating in anything resembling the typical modern social media culture simply isn't good for me. Maybe I'm getting old, maybe everyone is just a dickhead, maybe I'm just a dickhead; but I used to be one of the people with ideals and some hope to change the world for the better. Ten years on, the kids have decided what I believe in is outdated, and that I'm pretty much the reincarnation of Hitler for every questioning the new orthodoxies of thought.

I'll be the first to admit I don't exactly have a busy social life in the real world. I'm working on changing that, but there are times I'm not feeling up to it, so I rely on the internet as a crutch. It's those times where I feel incredibly isolated without it, but exposing myself to the widespread toxicity of the internet at large any more is almost certainly unhealthy by this point.

What can I do?

As someone that's been on a certain imageboard on-and-off for what'll be ten years in 2020, I know how you feel, m8. I hate these people about as much as those redditors you mentioned. I just saw that this meme (a meme that was part of the reason I really grew sick of the place) is apparently now so ubiquitous that it's trended on knowyourmeme:

https://knowyourmeme.com/memes/the-eternal-anglo

Maybe I'm also just getting older, but the lack of any kind of civility online is just tiring to me, now. The internet has rarely ever been civil, but *at least* I knew there was an element of freedom of expression, as older people still didn't quite understand what kids did. Now we're not even gonna have that. All the places I've browsed for years are full and under a corporate thumb that once wasn't there, and if they are there, the place quickly becomes full of childish ideologues and oh-so hilarious memers.

What I will say is that I agree very much with this lad >>29030. I'm very lucky that I have a friend who thinks similarly to me, but he's admittedly also a lot more socially mature, less anxious. He thinks many of the things I think, but he's also just a kind, grounded person. He was once a lot more addicted to chans and the internet, but he hasn't been for years, now. He focuses on the outside world, and he just seems happier for it. Thinking of him keeps me remembering that the world outside, at least as it currently is, doesn't really give a shit about most of us, and that those that concern themselves with the internet too much are the ones ultimately doing themselves harm. They think they're so smart, so learned, so funny, but they're rarely making the difference that they think they are.

I guess to just summarise: The world does keep turning. And unless we hear nuclear sirens going off or you see tanks rolling down your street; then you've got the rest of your life to go out and enjoy it. I'd recommend getting the money together to visit national parks, forests, museums, etc. Don't mind the weather, just give it a go. It'll at least remind you that you're alive.

In the space of fifteen years, online discourse has gone from isolated communities astonished to discover how many different points of view there are around the world, to becoming a hyperpartisan, hyperpolitical clusterfuck.

I don't post much any more, because I can tell that taking sense isn't doing any good. And that's, reassuringly, why arguing on the internet has got worse- because millions of us have attained enlightenment and bugged out of it. There are lots of us out there but we don't realise it because we've stopped communicating our presence.

I think a lot of us have used the internet to cathartically purge ourselves of a lot of the ugliness we see in others and have gone on to start families and have careers and such.

Meaningful conversation with the good guys tends to be brief. The good guys don't argue. They politely inform one another of facts, briefly research to confirm veracity, and thank each other for shoring up one another's ignorance. Conversation with the bad guys is a Sisyphean exercise in masochism, where they learn nothing and the only lesson you can learn is to not bother. So their rambling bleats tend to dominate message boards and such like.

Try getting pen pals. I had one for a while a few years back where we solely communicated via email and I found it rather cathartic. A nice break from everything else online where you're generally getting instant responses and quickly disposable stimulation; you can properly reflect and think about what you're trying to say.
