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.

Train prices are daft nowadays though. Kind of defeats the object of a wild camping trip if you ask me.

Tangentially related, but I was looking at visiting That London with my other half recently, and we concluded it'd be cheaper to go to Amsterdam for the weekend. There's something very definitely not right there.

Okay, but it'd certainly cost me more in petrol to get somewhere remote in Scotland than it would to take the train to a request stop somewhere. Not really sure what else to suggest.

You're not wrong though, it's cheaper to fly to Norway than it is Aberdeen for me on the same airline on the same type of plane. £250 for a 30 minute flight, and that's with a discount.

The old Bonald Blumpf thread is over 3000 posts long now. Can we have an impeachment-specific thread?

The US appeals court just ruled that Trump's tax returns can be released for use in a public criminal investigation. The Supreme Court may overrule this but despite having a conservative majority, it is far less predictable and prone to voting along 'party' lines. I'm really enjoying this season.

It's looking very likely that the vote on impeachment will be driven by the Democrats and Republicans looking ahead to coming elections, both presidential and in the senate and house of representatives.

Many republicans will be scared of voting against Trump as their voters may see it as a betrayal against the cause. However there are signs that many republicans would turn coat against him as they're seeing him as too much of a liability.
Democrats will probably vote against Trump, but it's not out of the question that some would feel that a likeable Democrat Presidential candidate would have much better chances against Trump than against a more moderate Republican candidate who might emerge out of the wreckage of an impeachment.

A lot will hang on what happens to Pence. Some Republicans might be happy to ditch Trump to see a coronation, but the whispers are that Pence knows pretty much everything and the Democrats may try and take him out too, knowing that with both of them gone Pelosi is next in line.

OP says he doesn't know much about cars; buying a write-off can be a minefield, even if it looks straight.


It looks tidy enough, but I'd want to see a service history before buying anything with that sort of mileage. 150k is a perfectly reasonable mileage for something that has been well looked after, but it could be on death's door if the owner's idea of routine maintenance is "take it to the garage when the grinding noises get unbearably loud". The assortment of stains on the upholstery aren't a great sign. It's also being sold on trade terms, so you're pretty much shit out of luck if it's a lemon.

I've just passed my test and I'm looking a runabout. Unfortunately at my current residence the insurance seems to be extra wank, so I've had to downsize my expectations from superminis to city cars.

That in mind I've been looking at Hyundai i10s mostly, and also found a Fiat Panda 1.1 from 2010 with 39000 miles on it.
There's those peugeot/toyota/citroen city cars in the same cost bad but they've got no space in the boot at all so I want something boxier for when I want to carry things.

I just want someone to give me an opinion before I go have a look. I like Pandas too; they're pleasingly boxy and practical, the cabin is less hideous than the toyota Aygos of similar vintage and the body is better looking than the blobby i10 or old kia picantos.

Panda is definitely a good choice for what you're looking at - but don't write off those Toyota Aygos; you might think they look a bit shit for your first car, but the bit you haven't discovered yet is maintenance, and those Japanese cars are way more durable and reliable than the Italians.

The name of the sampled instrument in these tracks is called a Rhodes piano, right?

It sounds amazing when it's paired with hip hop drums. I'd happily listen to albums of just this alone.

Well, I'm officially old. I don't think I recognised more than handful of albums off that list and I've not listened to a single one (except perhaps Lady Gaga via simple osmosis).

The only album I really remember liking from the last 10 years was Chase and Status' "No more idols", and I guess the second La Roux album was alright, sort of.

Most of the music I've discovered since '09 has been older 2000-2009 era stuff that was either a genre I wasn't interested in at the time or so obscure that no one my peer circle had discovered it.

If it's true that people forever listen to the music of their youth, then my youth ended in 2009. RIP.

There's only a few on that list I know I've definitely listened to: PJ Harvey, Daft Punk, Todd Terje, Courtney Barnett, Grimes only Visions as everything after that hasn't been to my taste and Fiona Apple.

I haven't discovered much new music in the past fifteen years or so. That said, this came straight to mind for best albums of the past decade; there will be more but for the rest I'd have to check when they were actually released.

Well good for you mate. In 99% of cases it's going to be a waste of time though.

On a good day walking around a big town you might be able to hand out 30 CVs. On the internet you can put in probably a hundred applications in the same amount of time.

If you need a job and you need one sooner rather than later, it's simply not an efficient investment of effort to waste an afternoon giving your CVs to people who are going to put them straight in the bin. It's actively harmful to your prospects, like a hunter wasting more energy chasing his prey than he will gain from catching it.

Yeah, but handing in CVs you could get an interview for a job that hasn't been advertised or at least one that hasn't been advertised some place where candidates are machine gunning in applications. The competition would be much less stiff.

If you're sending 100 applications a day there's a very good chance you're doing it wrong anyway.

Nah, that's very much doing it right; at least for entry level jobs, which sounds like the sort of advice this thread pertains to. Usually a job that hasn't been advertised is something much more specialised, so while there might be less competition it's less likely you'd actually be qualified for it. That's not just a needle in a haystack, it's a diamond ring of exactly your size in a cornfield.

There's a myth about copy/pasting applications meaning you'll get binned every time. It's got a grain of truth to it, but not quite. Nowadays, applications are scanned by software multiple times before they even make it to a person; if you have the right keywords and structure in there that the software looks for you've won half the battle.

Wasting your time writing up a fresh application from scratch for every shite call centre job is a waste of time thanks to the same principle as the hunter analogy.

Not him, but if I got handed a paper CV that someone had brought in in person I'd pay it much more attention that the dozens of electronic applications I had to process that day. You're probably right about the numbers game but I think you hit a point where you've applied to all the potential jobs you can online - pounding the pavements is a perfectly good decision at some stage. Not least to get you out the house for a bit.

I think if you have a confident personality, and can pitch yourself well in a couple of sentences, turning up in person like that can really work. Most people (particularly those who are jobless) don't have that kind of personality though.

Screenshot_2019-10-28 Save 78% on Assetto Corsa Ul.png
Assetto Corsa is only £13 on Steam, with all the DLC, right now. It's easily the most entertaining driving sim I've played and there are seemingly endless amounts of DLC for it, I can't recommend it enough.

I meant to say "endless amounts of mods for it", as you can see the DLC is definitively finite.

Interesting - I like a driving SIM and have seen the reviews of I and considered it in the past. I have a Logitech wheel/pedals and one of those driving seats to go with.

Why is it so good? I like Project Cars very much indeed, but with the wheel it's almost too easy once you've practiced enough.

A couple of years ago I bought a wheel and pedals and thought I'd get into multiplayer racing in Assetto Corsa. Played it for maybe 15 hours total but eventually got bored of it and realised I'm not really into racing sims. I played the shit out of the old GT and Forza games but I was never one to autistically shave milliseconds off my laptimes or engage in the tedium of going around the same track over and over to learn the best racing lines, which is a necessity if you want to be competitive online.

I ended up selling the wheel and pedals, bought an old MS Sidewinder joystick because force feedback in joysticks went the way of the dodo for some reason, and had a blast blasting people in Il-2. Going pew-pew in the air or in space is a more fun thing to simulate than driving around a race track.

The variety of tracks and the range of cars to drive is what I like most about it. It's definitely more of a sim than Project Cars, although the graphics aren't quite up to the same level. As I, eventually, mentioned it has a modding scene that's second to none. If you have a "local" racetrack that you've always thought "damn, I wish that was in a game for once", someone's probably at least working on adding it. Not that the base game's barren or anything, especially with all the DLC, there's just loads going on beyond that.

>but I was never one to autistically shave milliseconds off my laptimes or engage in the tedium of going around the same track over and over to learn the best racing lines
Oh. Okay.

Il-2's ace too though. I've never managed to get a Sturmovik into space, but maybe I never tried hard enough.

I kindof liked that film. It has some funny parts, despite itself. Wasn't it the college project of a now famous director?

How do I go about writing a book?

I've got a loose idea in my head an undercover officer infiltrates a group, possibly someone like the Democratic Football Lads Alliance, only for it descend into a farce as it turns out 90% of the members are undercover officers who don't want to blow their cover. So far the end result in my head is that the organisation ends up gaining lots of members because the officers make the group seem much larger than it would be otherwise and they're so adept at bureaucracy that they run the group far more efficiently than it would otherwise be. This is the point where you tell me this idea has already been done and far better than I could ever hope to write it. but I'm not entirely sure where to go from here.

Thanks, lads.

G K Chestertons The Man Who Was Thursaday might be worth a read. It sounds essentially the same but the ending - more a mystery around who's undercover and who's not, and a bit of talk about anarchy. It's pretty short. Might be helpful.

I've always wondered about writing; whether you should have something to say that your characters revolve around or if it should be nothing more than a story. I can see both aproaches being boring for a reader.

How well does screen writing theory translate through books? The anatomy of a story kind of thing?

It's the same basic theory but the way most screenwriters phrase it all makes me cringe.

I've never seen anybody reference Chesterton outside of the early Deus Ex fandom but I welcome it. It's like he stepped in from an alternate dimension where Arthur Conan Doyle wasn't insufferably dull.

>How well does screen writing theory translate through books? The anatomy of a story kind of thing?
Screen writing theory is (with the exception of modernist filmmakers - you know the ones) largely based on classic literary structure. Joseph Campbell constructed the model of the "monomyth" or "hero's journey" that has been so ubiquitous throughout the ages that it's difficult to shake it when watching film or engaging with formulaic prose once you're aware. That's not to say it's tacky or overdone, just overly reliant on plot linearity rather than individual character exposition to flesh out the book/film universe.

Not who you're responding to but DX was how I got exposed to Chesterton's work.
There's something else I'd read written by him, something that was quite profound and even more so given that it was written a hundred years ago. Can't fucking recall what.
Sage for veering off-topic.

/nom/13073 Hot sauces and chili jams
Any of you lads had any experience with making your own hot sauce or chili jams? If not, do you have any favourites?

I'm about to harvest my chili plant and retire it for the winter. I'll probably cook up a few batches and bottle them for the next couple of months.

My proposed mix is as follows:

- 3 x Scotch bonnet
- 3 x jalapeno (grilled)
- 1 x bell pepper (roasted)
- Handful of roasted plum tomatoes
- Half an onion (grilled)
- Some garlic
- Some ginger
- A few carrots (roasted)
- Salt

It turned out alright, I suppose. Less yield than I'd expected mostly due to not being able to liquefy it as much as I anticipated. Not sure if I just didn't add enough liquid or what.

Bit late, but this guy has a lot of good guides to making chilli sauces. You might want to look at making a fermented sauce too. They're "easy" in one sense of the word, although you might face certain problems with that route.

12x random chilli pepper I was sent. Look like Trinidad Scorpions but it's hard to be sure.
Half a mug of dried sichuan peppers
2x Garlic cloves
Roasted on a low temperature for a bit then took the sichuan peppers out when they started to smoke. Turned up the temperature and continued roasting until the chillies started to blacken a little.
.5 cup light soy sauce
1x cup of rice vinegar
1.5 shots of lime juice
1x teaspoon of cayenne pepper
.5 test tube of dried chipotle
1x teaspoon salt
1x tablespoon MSG
Peeled the now soft garlic & removed the chilli pepper stalks, blended all the ingredients together as homogeneously as possible. Brought to a boil then simmered for the remainder of 30 minutes while fairly constantly stirring.

It's cooling now. I can see subsidence is a problem as it keeps separating so will need shaking/stirring before serving but it's really delicious.
