I wonder if camcorder users had any inclination that one day their recordings would be turned into music videos. What's weird is we all have video recording devices in our pockets these days but I can't imagine we're leaving behind anything like the content of people just going about life.

Maybe in 10-20 years people will start plundering footage from early youtube.

Okay might as well try and be polite and keep the oil out of the other megathreads.

Welcome to the motor one. In an attempt to actually get people to post in it, tell me about the car you really want and could feasibly afford. Right now I'm really thinking a lot about a big square 80s Merc as we've been talking about them. Even a Lada would be fun as fuck.

Please do indicate when you're coming off a roundabout, though. Cunts round here don't bother, and if I'm towing, a sequence of them mean I sit there like a twat as they turn off in front of me - plenty of gap but I can't use it because of their idle cuntery.
So yeah, use P plates, can't see why not.

I was too tired to fully appreciate this thing. Let's just say, almost every car that allows me to position myself on the backseat comfortably is a decent car.

/news/20318 Thomas Cook collapses as last-ditch rescue talks fail

Thomas Cook has collapsed after last-minute negotiations aimed at saving the 178-year-old holiday firm failed.

The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) said the tour operator had "ceased trading with immediate effect".

It has also triggered the biggest ever peacetime repatriation, aimed at bringing more than 150,000 British holidaymakers home.

Peter Fankhauser, Thomas Cook's chief executive, said the firm's collapse was a "matter of profound regret".

The link doesn't call it a directive, because a regulation is distinct from a directive, but they do erroneously suggest it came into force the same year it was passed.

Slow walking at 45 'a sign of faster ageing'

How fast people walk in their 40s is a sign of how much their brains, as well as their bodies, are ageing, scientists have suggested.

Using a simple test of gait speed, researchers were able to measure the ageing process. Not only were slower walkers' bodies ageing more quickly - their faces looked older and they had smaller brains.

I knew it. I fucking knew it. Slow walking mouthbreathing mongs have smaller brains. This explains a lot. Fast walking master race for life.

.There was no bottled water 💦 we drank water from the tap (bathroom tap at night)🚰 we shared the same bottle of pop... After we'd wiped it with our dirty sleeves, We only had kids tv after school 📺 we rode our bikes 🚲 for hours 🕰 There was no such thing as a mobile 📱 or any other electronic device 📵. If someone had a fight, that's exactly what it was... a fist fight👊. Kids didn't have guns🔫 or knives🔪.The street lights 💡were our curfew or until our mum shouted us. School was mandatory ✏️📒. We watched our mouths around our elders👴🏼👵🏼 because we knew we'd get a clip. Sayings like "What's for tea?" your guaranteed reply was shit and sugar“, where's me Mum" Run off with the milkman would be the answer. Nothing was too PC back then. Happy Days

Reminds me of this flaming pile of shit masquerading as the blurb of a "book":

"May 1974 our street was up for demolition and so we moved into a new house to a place called Flanshaw in Wakefield that seemed at the time a million miles from Thornes I remember moving in a rusty dusty old Tailors removal wagon that used to be based on Northgate Wakefield opposite the place the less well-off folk get married, anyway turns out we got a discount cos my brother worked there ! and sitting on the mattress Nan had died on months before we rode the journey to our new home, I felt at the time I was going on an adventure a mystery tour as looking out the back of the wagon I just remember seeing fluffy white clouds rolling by . And whilst sitting in the back of that old removal wagon slightly confused but also a feeling of excitement and anticipation emotions overcame me as I thought of Nan , And as fantastic as the times were at Wilson terrace listening to Nan's bedtime stories waking up to deep snow on the ground Christmas morning etc .and the playing out too the sailing on those home-made rafts on the frog pond By 99 archers at back of us I never knew then how much of an adventure I was about to embark upon or even what lay ahead for me , mix all that up and those thoughts of missing Nan cos she left us new years day 1974 a week after santa had brought my toys and you will get the picture the Tailor’s removal van suddenly screeched to a halt the brake noises slowly faded as the scruffy looking man driving opened the half shut shutters a warm sunny day, greeted me children scary children in my mind dressed in flares girls shouting and running around in the street skipping boys riding their tomahawk Budgie and chopper bikes popping wheelies! riding past me at speed Girls playing with their Cindy dolls crawling in and out of there plastic made Wendy houses on their front lawns making pretend cups of tea with colourful plastic cups and saucers ! neatly dressed and obviously proud mums talking over the garden gate to neighbours dads mowing their lawns under the summer sun . I sensed this was going to be quite an adventure"

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.

Studies have shown that self-directed CBT is just as effective as going to an actual therapist, as long as you're not too depressed to do CBT exercises consisently over the long term. I think the main benefit of seeing an actual therapist is that they make sure you're putting in the work.

I did maybe ~16 weeks of CBT for extremely bad panic attacks back in '13. I was paying £50 for an hour a week back then but to be honest I was at my wit's end and would have done anything to have got myself out of the hole that I was in.

Eventually a careful balancing act of CBT and medication got me back onto my feet and back into being a functioning member of society. Actual jaw-bursting, teeth clenching, gut-scrunching, "I'm really finally going to die" panic attacks are down to one every month or so as opposed to the daily occurrence they were in the 2012/13 season.

I'm not really sure what I wanted to put across with all this but just relating my experience, nonetheless.

Government asks Queen to suspend Parliament

The government has asked the Queen to suspend Parliament just days after MPs return to work in September - and only a few weeks before the IIIWW deadline.

Boris Johnson said a Queen's Speech would take place after the suspension, on 14 October, to outline his "very exciting agenda". But it means MPs are unlikely to have time to pass laws to stop a no-deal IIIWW on 31 October.

The ride never ends!

It's my answer to all problems of the "romantic" kind, but that's only because I'm totally convinced it's the correct one; confidence. If there's one thing Johnson believes in it's himself, you just have to make sure you don't turn into a complete dickhead in this regard, because that's almost as much of a turn off as rampant insecurity. In my opinion this is best avoided by being jochular and gregarious, which once again, despite his many, many flaws, are traits Johnson seems to possess. I would also consider these traits to fall under the wider umbrella of "confidence".

Lorry drivers stuck in IIIWW traffic jams may cause rise in ‘dogging’

Ministers working hard to prepare for a no-deal IIIWW have been dogged by an unlikely new problem with 25 days to go. Officials planning to ease any congestion on the transport links to Dover have encountered the potential for an embarrassing issue: a rise in “dogging”.

At the Conservative Party conference last week, one member of the cabinet confessed that a side effect of increased congestion in Kent from stalled truck drivers would be an increase in the number of lorry drivers visiting voyeuristic sex sites in the Garden of England.

“One of the things we talk about in these no-deal meetings concerns hauliers and their activities,” the minister said. “The main thing is whether they will turn up at the Channel ports with the right paperwork. But there are also dogging hotspots all over the place.” Ministers believe the issue is more likely to flare up with British truckers. “Do Europeans even do dogging?” the minister asked. “There is something deeply British about dogging.”

As an /A/ poster, KC was a refuge for some of the more niche troubles like the over-the-counter options in DE (particularly DPH and DXM). The rest of that place, though... good riddance.

I'll really miss it. It kind of felt like an international version of this place. Just cosy discussions without any boring shitposts and memes.

Kohlchan has now emerged as the successor but it's just KC 2.0 with all of the same problems.

I guess I should find better things to do than waste time on imageboards.

I know I'm replying to fucking old posts, but I think this really presents just what a plague 4chan and /pol/ are. People have been going to Krautchan for years, but in the last few years or so it's become truly unbearable, like so many other places.

Kohlchan is down now, rumour says it's due to cloudfare removing them for ties to this shooting in Germany. Could be bullshit, but...

Where have all the knobheads gone?

If you went back ~10 years ago then it was wall to wall twats; you could barely move without bumping into one. I know people like Russell Brand are still about, but they're far less prominent. Why hasn't the next generation of knobheads risen up to take their place? Are they all on YouTube instead?

This is just like, my opinion man but I think the OP was talking about very different knobheads to the knobheads you describe and deride in your post.

Groping women and doing cheeky lines didn't make one a knobhead in the zeitgeist the OP was talking about, in fact it made one a bit of a lad. In the relevant zeitgeist knobhead were in my opinion useless cunts who took every opportunity to discuss why the common man was awful, the common man being the bloke who did cheeky lines and groped women.

Can you imagine 2009 era Russell Brand doing cheeky lines and groping women? He was the opposite, an out and out knobhead who only existed to stop ordinary, decent, cocaine taking women gropers from going to work in their regular jobs with ridiculous protests for nebulous reasons.

2009 Russel Brand might not have done those things, but 2007 Russel Brand would have done it while his mate was on speakerphone to grandfather of the woman he was touching up, though probably not the cokecain bit. However, given what I found on his Wikipedia page, pic related, I don't imagine he's the judgemental sort. All those things I listed did make you a knobhead, it made you Dappy from Ndubz and it got you on Channel 4's Balls of Steel or mid era Big Brother.

Most people who reckon they're "a bit of a lad" are usually knobheads who are trying too hard. I don't know who you imagine was declaring that the "common man was awful" in 2009, but if it was anyone it was probably other common men who thought they were bringing standards down. You appear to be projecting some kind of deep sea fisherperson related irk back a few years too early.

As for "ridiculous protests for nebulous reasons", I imagine there were plenty about the then-recent global finance meltdown now known as the Great Recession and Brand himself did attend a anti-Gaza War protest, but that seems quite specific. Could you help me out by doing the same and getting more specific? Because right now you sound like a drunk Telegraph columnist.

I think the biggest hint the OP left us about whom he was speaking was the fact that Lee Collins is an apolitical woman botherer who twice won Loaded magazine's "LAFTA" award. I'm not sure how this fits into your description at all.

It seems to me that you're conflating apolitical in 2009 with apolitical in 2019. Back then being apolitical was the norm teenlad, nobody gave enough of a fuck to care about politics. It's only since austerity that the witch burners have become a voice in mainstream politics, successive Blair governments left the common mam with a decent enough lifestyle that being involved was a bit sad.

You can't judge a zeitgeist through wikipedia, wikipedia is designed to distort and distance itself from mood. What you're seeing re Dappy and Nduz is your own desire to project those beliefs on to a view from a neutral lens. One problem or positive aspect of wikipedia is the propensity to change its views in accordance with the zeitgeist. If you check the 2009 versions for the Dappt, Nduz or Big Brother articles you will come away with a very different viewpoint.

Refarding your specific question about Brand, I remember one incident in which he shut down half a dozen offices in a city centre, precenting hundreds of people going to work because of "the bankers the bonuses" which he later said he regretted because he was misinformed, those people were just normal people doing a job and he inconvenienced them for misinformed political ideals.

Again teenlad, and I call you that because while I respect your convictions I take issues with the experiences and understanding that led you to them, you're taking a single aspect of this LAFTAlad's character and projecting it on to what you believe is a template of knobhead behaviour. I do not believe this is knobhead behaviour, hence my replies in this thread, but maybe the OP will come along and shoot me out of the water in which case I will bow out of this thread and maybe start my own about what I believe knobhead to be. But for the record, I am arguing purely in OPfaith, I believe your views on what a knobhead is are directly opposed to the OP's views, while you are presenting yourself as in agreement with the OP.

If a video emerged of Trump giggling like a schoolgirl while crushing kittens to death, I would not be remotely surprised.

He's betrayed a US ally just to protect his own material interests in Turkey. What a massive cunt. Who would ever trust the US again after his presidency?

Instead of trying to broker an agreement, even half-heartedly, he's allowing Erdogan to reestablish a Second Ottoman Empire of whom the fiercest fighters against the most debased terror group in recent memory, the Kurds, will be the initial victims. Besides, of course, the Turks themselves who already labour under Erdogan's crooked and heartless rule. I simply don't understand how a man so wretched, debased and without sense could become the foremost leader in the world. Donald Trump's claim that he will tear down the economy of Turkey can't be believed any moreso than his denials of impropriety when talking with Volodymyr Zelensky, nor will they count for shit for the thousands of Kurds who will die, be maimed and be yet more traumatised by conflict. Kurds who, seeing they can't hope to win a conventional war within their own territory, will enact bombings and massacres against Turkish civilians, which will in turn increase the ferocity of Turkey's campaign and so on for decades. Donald Trump and the enablers within his administration were simply too lazy and self-absorbed to make even the most meagre efforts towards avoiding this, an act so sinful and without merrit I believe it to be the worst thing this sorry excuse for a man has done in office. I have spent the best part of three years ignoring his blathering, his posturing and his misdeeds, but to not even try, at any level, to prevent this, is so shocking an event that I am having trouble accepting it as reality. It is as if the Devil himself were occupying the Oval Office.

What another four years off this will wreak upon the world is beyond my imagining.
