>"Zealot" implies a faith aspect in Thunberg's climate rhetoric which isn't the case, it's all real.

People have faith in things that are real all the time, you ask the average person on the street how they know a bunch of things are 'real' that are actually 'real' they won't have a fucking clue they will stare at you blankly.

You ask them "what the most abundant greenhouse gas in the atmosphere is?" and a tiny fraction would say water, I am willing to bet that you didn't even know water was a greenhouse gas until I just said it, and you won't accept it as a fact coming from me because you decided I am on the wrong side of your faith.

Because it doesn't really matter a lot of time if people know why they should believe something as long as they believe the correct thing.

Most people operate off of faith for most things, and argue based on faith even when those things are real.

What's up with all the Mozzies lately? Normally they leave me alone but I've been bitten 4 times over the last week.

I find the best method is to leave a fan on. They're poor flyers and follow carbon dioxide so a strong fan going seems to keep them at bay. Greta-lad will soon find me though and give me a stern talking to.

>>437244 Around here, it rained an absurd amount over the winter, and barely froze. It then snapped into a continuous dry spell, so there's a fair amount of warm standing water, that hasn't been refilled / overtopped, ideal mozzie territory. The lack of frost may account for some of the extra rats. It's like bloody watership down here, baby bunnies everywhere, which I suspect is related to the warm winter not killing enough of them off.

I started cycling when the lockdown started and my fitness levels have reached a point where I now actually look forward to cycling every day, so I'm looking to upgrade my bike to something a bit faster.

I currently have a touring bike with flat handlebars that weighs about 16.5kg and I think I'd like something lighter and racier with drop handlebars. What can I get for around £300 or less on the used market? Are there any good places to look for bikes aside from ebay/gumtree/facebook?

It looks like you've got an older type of handlebar stem called a quill stem. Accu will sell you a replacement bolt for a couple of quid if you can figure out what size you need, but a new stem will only set you back about £15.

I think it's what's called a quill stem, it might be easier buying a whole new one than trying to get a new bolt.
Or alternatively you can get a convertor like below, then you would also need to get a new stem to go with it.

I'm not a computer magician but I think the only thing preventing them from working on Brian would be one line of code that contains the valid file types it will let you upload. Brian doesn't need to be able to decode the image itself, because that's done on our end in the browser, and that shouldn't be a problem for anyone who's updated their browser in the past 5-10 years.

Regarding DRM on images, one thing I've found that many websites do, either intentionally or otherwise, to stop people from being able to save images is to hide the image itself underneath a transparent layer so right clicking doesn't let you save the image. There is a workaround although it can be a bit of a pain in the backside, in Chrome, right click on the image and click "inspect", and using that function you can break the page down and find the url to the actual image.

I've come to seek some very serious financial advice. I'm in my mid thirties but I've never borrowed a penny from an official institution. I'm not quite a pikey but I'm not that far removed if I'm being honest. I've grown up in a culture of working for cash and buying things for cash. Debt is a dirty word in my family and I've always lived within my means.

I've been quite frugal over the years and have managed to put together about 90k in savings. My employment history is sketchy at best and although I've been working since I left school, there are some serious gaps in the official records when it comes to my income.

For the past six months I've been self employed with about 80k a year coming in. All declared and above board.

I've always assumed that I couldn't get a mortgage and I'm still doubtful but I thought it might be worth asking some strangers whether I'm right.

My current overheads are pretty low and at a push I can save a good few grand a month after tax and rent etc. That means I could potentially have a lot more in the bank in the near future.

I desperately want to own a house and I know I could buy something tiny in a shit place with the money I have but I've recently been wondering what I could get if a bank would lend me a big chunk. I don't want anything fancy but it would be nice to have some space in a nice area.

As I said I know nothing about debt so my main questions are do I have any chance of getting a mortgage with only 6 months of official financial stability (and no credit history), and if so, how much would they lend me with 90ish as a deposit?

You can normally borrow about 4.5x of your salary on top of your deposit. You'll probably need a longer history of income, especially if self-employed. That could take a year or two.

It might be worth getting a credit card and spending a bit each month, making sure it's paid off in full to avoid interest. It's an easy way to demonstrate that you manage money well. Having no evidence of debt management can be a negative thing, I suppose the logic is 'if we can't see you managing small debts, we're unsure about your personality with larger debts'.

I often check both moneysavingexpert and r/ukpersonalfinance because they'll have a lot of info on this sort of thing.

Okay - a mortgage broker will definitely help as they will have actual offers from lenders. I can recommend Charles Cameron.

There are three variables to a mortgage - how much you earn (£80k), how much deposit you have (£90k) and how affordable your monthly payments are going to be. On the downside, you're self-employed, which means you have to do a little bit more proving you can still earn that much in the future. Your £90k deposit is a very good upside though. You can generally borrow between 3x and 5x your earnings depending on how dependable they are and the lender/offer.

On the affordability side, the general rule of thumb is you should be spending no more than 28% of your monthly income after tax is paid, which for you is about 1200 quid per month. The last variable is how many years you are taking the mortgage for, this varies between 10 and 30 years. Based on all that I would think you could be getting a mortgage of about £250k which added to your deposit means you can buy a property of £300k-ish.

You should get a mortgage that allows you to overpay - if you're as good a saver as you say, this means that you can overpay it every month, which dramatically shortens the term. There are mortgages (offset mortgages) that also allow you to keep your savings and balance the mortgage against it - again, a broker will help here as they can get actual offers to talk about.

When you speak to a broker, and they talk to lenders, you'll have to do some extra work because of being self-employed and the fact that rules have tightened up around affordability recently, but you have a good deposit and that really helps.

Bumping this thread because I'm curious of how true it is. Like OP I've always avoided debt (student loan aside) and I've got more to show as a result because I've never paid interest and always had sizeable savings for anything that goes wrong. Plus I didn't want to be enslaved to debt in my youth.

It seems like something that would be more applicable to the American market but numerous older people told this to me growing up, that I should just buy things on credit and then pay them off because it's essential to home ownership. It would be satisfying to know that these people were idiots.

>It would be satisfying to know that these people were idiots.

Unfortunately not. The files held by credit reference agencies only include information on credit you've taken out. If you've always avoided debt, then lenders have very little information on your ability to reliably repay it. You might be very prudent, or you might have avoided debt because you're bad with money know that you'd get into trouble. Small, occasional borrowing that is reliably repaid proves that you can be trusted with a bigger loan. Your energy and phone bills do go on your credit file, but it's useful to have some other borrowing history to give lenders more information.

Besides that, if you're good at managing money you can substantially benefit by using rewards credit cards for your spending - you'll get cashback or vouchers for free, just for buying what you would normally buy.

Well... Not quite. They still have their Old Money types, and if you're not part of that OG Colonial Crackas club you'll never be in it, even if you're the President of the United States. This is a large part of the reason the US establishment has vilified Trump, he's not part of that old reptilian aristocracy, even if he's filthy fucking rich. There's a reason Tiger Woods was fair game for wholesale press slander, and it's the same reason premiership footballers and celebrities over here are. Filthy rich, but still working class.

Even so, money still makes enough of a difference to make almost any and all racially, sexually or gender based discrimination complaint utterly irrelevant. I'm reminded of the thing we have over here where West Ham fans chuck bananas at black players. I heard one of those players speaking at an interview and he said, with a degree of frankness the interviewers weren't expecting, that it's hard to let insults like that get under his skin when he earns more in a week than many of those people do in their lives.

Money changes the balance of power. If I'm a middle class white guy, and I called the black CEO of an oil company a monkey, the balance of power is squarely in his favour because he is so rich. Calling him a monkey is no longer punching down like it would be if I called a street youf from East London the same thing.


That's what I already alluded to in mentioning the strong streak of traditional conservatism amongst US black and British Asian demographics. They certainly have their reasons- With black folks it's because they desire the most freedom possible and least inSURFerence from white men in government. In British Asians it's because they want the freedom to lock their women in cupboards or exploit the workers in their carpet emporium.

But the case is still pretty strong that being conservative when you're poor is in fact a sign you're thick.

I've been getting up a lot earlier since lockdown. Can't quite figure out how not having to get up makes it easier to get up.

Have made friends with the birds, even at the early hour. I can hear them so clearly at the moment, with the lack of background car, road and plane use - the blackbirds in my garden sing loudly early every morning. They have such a rich and complex song.

The birds singing are one of the bits of lockdown I will remember for a long time.

I read somewhere that the birds are actually singing quieter during lockdown because they're no longer having to compete with the likes of traffic and aeroplanes, which also means we can hear them more clearly.

Lads, I'm without a job. Being a developerlad, I'm not too worried about finding another one, but I might have to move, and I don't know where I should go.

I'm thinking of London or Manchester. There's more to do in London, and I think there'd be more to do in London, but I'd be a bit better off money wise in Manchester. I don't know how easy it is to meet new people in either of them.

Have any of you lived in both? Could you tell me what it's like to live in them?

Are there any good cities I'm overlooking?

Anon just to add some balance.

I'm from Manchester and moved to London for work (though ironically back in Manchester for a while because of Corona) and living in London changed my feelings about the UK. Sure, you can probably find close to, or most things, that you want in Manchester but London is a completely different ball game. It's expensive to live there because the good jobs are there in abundance and it's a place worth living in. I'm never bored on the weekends, there's always something going on or something to do. In normal times you're a tube ride away from the airport to go on a weekend break somewhere or further afield, the networking is great and there's always weird quirky shit you can do, go to Viktor Wynd's Museum then stroll round Hyde Park on the way home - what a nice Sunday.

There are of course downsides, mainly the standard of living and the cost of it, but to me it makes it worth it, but I'm not over 30 and looking to settle down so that might change things significantly.

Compared to living in Manchester as well it blew my mind how little rain London gets. It might be grey, but that constant unending drizzle doesn't seem to exist in the same way as it does in Manchester and makes me significantly less depressed. London has it's rough areas, but it has also been gentrified (and don't shoot me Corbyn-lads, but I don't think improving areas is a bad thing, we can't stay stagnant for fear of some people being left behind because they like their shitholes shit.) so there are a lot of nice places everywhere. In Manchester you kind of have the city centre bit then outside of it is really just scarred post-industrial towns and villages like Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport, Bury. None of them are bad places, but none of them will make you look back on your deathbed and feel like you've been living. Again, London has their grim areas, but they still feel significantly less shite than up north.

Finally if you're looking for a partner, London seems to have great choice, there are lots of ambitious, young, driven people from all over the world all crammed into one crazy city with money to spend. What's not to like about that?

My vote goes to London. I could never contemplate living somewhere like Manchester permanently again.

I don't know how Corona has impacted it but London lettings move fast, you have to just go with your gut I've found. There's too many people, too much competition and you don't have the days to ponder it like you do elsewhere. It's a bit of a risk but if you sign six months you can always look to be moving out.

I am in general happier and more financially secure living up north, but every time I go to London I wish I lived there again. It really is just a lot more interesting. But up here I have a reasonably large house with a private road leading to it and some gardens and land - I could not hope to afford much more than a shoebox in streatham for the same sort of money, and as my main hobby is car fiddling which requires space, I have made my choice to settle up here.

If my career goes the way I intend, I will probably end up back down there in some suburb.

Spicy Savory and Sweet Mexican Corn Bowl (Elote)

1 Can of Corn
A couple scoops of Mayonnaise
Grated Cheese like Parmesan
Powdered Cayenne or Chili Pepper

Drain the water from the can, heat corn in microwave bowl, add scoops of mayonnaise and mix to where the corn is lightly-moderately saturated in it. Make sure there's very little to no water in the bowl before hand. Add grated parmesan and mix so there's enough to see throughout. Add light to moderate amount of Cayenne Pepper. You may want to just sprinkle it on top or mix it in.

An alternative to a can of corn is to buy corn cobs and cut the corn off the cob with a knife.

13304 Two course all potato meal
Works best with small to mid-size potatoes, cooking times may vary depending on what kind of potatoes you have.

- Potatoes
- Salt and Pepper
- Cooking Oil
- Vinegar

Pre-heat your oven to around 180-200C.

Take some potatoes, wash them and then peel them using a knife by shaving off strips roughly 2-5 mm thick. Try and keep the strips relatively even.

Put the kettle on.

Rinse the potato peels to get rid of excess starch, pat them dry, put them in a dry bowl and with salt and pepper. You can add any other dry spice you want. Add a good dollop of cooking oil, then mix some more until the skins are reasonably evenly coated. It's better to use a bit too much oil than a bit too little. Spread them on a baking tray lined with tin foil (without overlapping if possible) then stick them in the oven. While they cook, roughly dice the peeled potatoes and put them in a pot with the boiled water from the kettle and 3-4 table spoons of vinegar. They need to boil for ~20 minutes, the vinegar prevents the potato from falling apart during boiling.

I've been making tea in the saucepan lately and I find it tastes better, kind of softer.

Here's my method:

Put the cold water and teabag into the saucepan
Put on a high heat
When it's come up to boil it's done
Pour into a cup and add milk and sugar to taste

/beat/8707 Cover songs
The Pet Shop Boys' Always On My Mind has been voted the top cover version of all time in a BBC Music vote.

The song, written by John Christopher, Mark James and Wayne Carson, was first made famous by Brenda Lee and Elvis Presley in 1972.

Johnny Cash's cover of Nine Inch Nails' Hurt came in second place, followed by The Stranglers' version of Dionne Warwick's Walk On By. Jimi Hendrix's take on Bob Dylan's All Along The Watchtower came fourth. Jeff Buckley's cover of Leonard Cohen's classic Hallelujah completed the top five.

Not keen on that version of Walk On By but I like the rest. I reckon I'd have to have a good think about my favourite covers and I'm sure I'd still forget some.

I listened to them when I was about 12 or 13, it has genuinely never occurred to me that they'd still be going. Next you'll tell me Papa Roach has a cult following in Latin America or something.

But yeah I think it's serious. I would suggest he's probably on summat though.

The archives have been a bit of a reminder that there used to be a lot more shitposting and a lot less "serious discussions in /pol/" around here 8-10 years ago.

I mean plenty of good things have happened for me personally in those twelve years. i've had literally all the sex i've ever had in my life within that timespan, for example.

but as far as the world around us is concerned it's felt like a slow and constant descent into insanity. maybe i'm just a cynical cunt but I really can't think of one thing that's changed in a positive way since 2008.

the rise of e-cigs instead of fags maybe? that's how far i have to stretch.

Letting a boy have long hair is tantamount to child abuse.

By all means let them make the decision to grow it out when they're a teenager but a primary school age boy with long hair just looks like a girl and it always ends up unkempt and greasy because it isn't maintained properly.

It always seems to be poggy people who let their boy have long hair too.

I don't yearn for it, everything was bleak as fuck back then and there was looking like no end to the misery. At least the 'rona has shaken everything up. I'm bored of it myself by now, of course, but the future post pandemic is going to have some interesting times.

It's funny, it's a sentiment I've seen posted here before, and I've sometimes echoed myself. What we need is a good plague, clear out the cobwebs and shake up the order. Now we've got it, and it's been both worse than we'd ever have imagined and yet more disappointing.

I feel this is a watershed moment in the accusations of Anti-Semitisim. It must be apparent at this point that the word has evidently lost all meaning.

If everyone and everything is anti-Semitic than nothing is, the word losses all power. I don't think I will be able to take a public accusation of anti-Semitism seriously again, I can’t take it on good faith that they are. And even if I found proof someone was a genuine wrong'un I wouldn't be able to explain to others, because they would assume anti-Semite turned out to mean they insulted someone who happened to be Jewish once.

It's been a wierd kind of establishmentarian dog-whistle for years now, and I think just about any sensible person knows there has been a certain amount of crying wolf in recent times.

I have to simply hope that before long, society at large will have learned to filter out the nonsense, in the same way nobody believes the Prince of Nigeria any more. Poor lad's been trying to shift that money for decades. Accusations of aquatic mammal molestation, Cancel culture and the twitter pitchfork mob will burn itself out.
