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.

I work with someone who keeps boasting how she's leaving for a job paying more money; around £1,300 which equates to an increase of 3.8%. What she's omitted to tell most people is that she's actually going to be working an extra 5 hours per week so her hourly rate of pay will be going down, especially considering she would have been able to do 5 hours of overtime at time and a half here. There's also the fact that her commute will be much longer.
Do people often make such fundamental mistakes when leaving for a 'better paying' job?

This is one of the reasons I get cagey about telling recruiters my salary. Made that mistake, and when explaining my expectation of a bump of around £6k said she'd already pitched me at £3k, at which point I had to explain that going from working across the road from my flat to an hour away by train was going to cost me almost that much.
Joke's on them. Local train company started playing silly buggers about a month in and so the job came to an end, and now I've landed a job much closer to home for a further £5k bump. In the last 24 months, with two failed moves, I'm now on 50% more than I was. If you're below market, it may take a couple of jumps to fix that, especially if the market is moving.

Half the population do not have the mathematical ability to calculate a simple percentage. In all likelihood, she couldn't work out the difference in hourly rate even if she wanted to. An awful lot of things are explained by the fact that most people are barely numerate.

A whole 43%?! Seems unlikely.

When I'm Supreme Chairman for Life anyone who drives a van for a living will be beaten in the streets by my teenaged Revolutionary Guards, along with anyone who fills a website with unnecessary bloat and/or clutter.

Always driving on aggro mode, giving people shit for no reason, probably not paying taxes.

Don't knock it until you've tried it, lad. I used to think van drivers were cunts too, until I rented one for my last flat move. The sheer power. The rush of being taller than everyone else. The wild abandon with which you can endanger cyclist's lives.
It is intoxicating. I could feel myself being consumed by the van, and I only had it for a weekend. Imagine what driving one all day does to a man.

I find that having two large, wide angle wing mirrors in place of a central rear view leads to a certain driving style - you're far more confident about what's to each side of you, but not so much about what's potentially directly behind you, so you do end up swinging across lanes with abandon and utilising the inevitable turbo boost kick every time you do, just in case there's some motorbike about to smash your back doors in, so to speak.
The power factor is there for sure, too. It's no wonder those school run mums in their huge fuck off Range Rovers cause so much hassle.
I also used to drive a defender, and everyone else on the road seems terrified of you - I've almost never been cut off while driving what's essentially a three tonne steel tractor with bull bars, and you find yourself fantasising about just plowing into anyone daft enough to try, or slamming your brakes on when someone's up your arse. It wouldn't even leave a scratch on your motor, most likely, and they'd be mush.

That bit on the Nine o'Clock News when they make the news reader check Twitter and then, even more perplexingly, the BBC website itself is really tragic.

Birmingham city centre is one big fucking building site.

It is a giant maze - another tourist attraction for the hoards of peaky blinders fans that will soon be taking open-top bus rides along the aston expressway.

I unfortunately had to live in Birmingham for a while. It just feels like a giant mess. There's no real discernible centre, just streets on top of streets of nothingness and declining high street chains really.
The shopping centre is alright, but even that had an off feeling about it.
Probably the most depressing place I've ever lived.

I can attest to this after a visit to Iceland. Vegetable fingers are £1 each or two for £1.50. They scanned in three when I'd only got two and it took far, far too much explaining why I should be refunded £1 rather than 75p.
I've also got some of their vegan sausage rolls, so I'll see if they're as good as otherlad says.

Nit a brummie myself but I've heard the bit with all the grungy little alternative music venues is slated for demolition, to build some shit modern cathedral of consumerism no doubt. The same kind of tragedy is happening in cities all over the country. There's going to be no such thing as genuine culture left in another ten years, just copy pastes of the same shopping centres, Wetherspoon pubs and middle of the road nightclubs in every single city. Sheffield, Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham, they all feel exactly the same.

ARE RICO (bless him) tried to make joking reference to a bromance between him in Singapore and Lewis Vaughan-Jones in London, saying they "go together like Moss and Bros". Needless to say, it went down like flight 9525.

Not because "ugh, me no like words that are different", but because it's being used wrong. You've got MPs talking about death threats being "toxic", which implies there's a level of death threats that are fine, maybe even beneficial, it doesn't make sense.
|>>|| No. 29072
>which implies there's a level of death threats that are fine
There is. That level is zero. There's nothing wrong with this usage.
|>>|| No. 29073
Zero death threats isn't a death threat, it's the absence of death threats.

... which is the acceptable level of death threats in a civilised society.

If all death threats are toxic, then there's no need to call certain death threats toxic.

When you make toast, get it all buttered and lovely but then you notice some mould on the corner. Fucking penicillin, what's its end game?
Politicians are soft these days. It's a celebrity role that brings with it a good deal of controversy so they should expect death threats as part of the job. They've become a cloistered lot for a decades now but the way this is going risks putting us in shackles - remember back when candidates had to give their address on the ballot paper for example.
|>>|| No. 29077
Worse than that, they're trying to cling onto and use the terminology victimhood culture and use it to deflect criticism, which is entirely inappropriate and disrespectful considering the immense privilege that they, as the people literally in charge of country, occupy.
The fact that politicians are scared is a good thing. The fact that we still wield the power to remind them that they, the rulers, are beholden to us, the public, is a very fucking good thing.
If you start sympathising with politicians because the poor dears are a wittle bit fwitened by a mean tweet you're basically allowing a return to absolutist rule, we might as well dispense with democracy and let the fucking Queen make the laws.
Never forget, Otherlad, that the very concept of freedom and democracy we (theoretically) enjoy in the West was earned through bloodshed. You soft cunt.

Why are you both arguing about whether politicians should put up with death threats in exchange for their do-nothing £80k job? This is clearly the result of stupid people being allowed on the internet.
I've said it before, I'll say it again, it should be hard to get on the internet, at least more than 1 wire required, wireless is the devil, the utility of it should be slow and ungainly, not with all these pretty colours and it should be seen as a place for social outcasts.
No more politicians on our serious of tubes, Ms. Jenner can get back to playboy, ARE BAZZA can go on about the darkies in the pub like a normal person and the glut of middle of the road, average idiots who shit up our elite hangout circles can revive the telly.
Mass internet was a mistake.
|>>|| No. 29082
One of you's talking about the quality of the death threat and the other is talking about the quantity. There is no acceptable level of quality for a death threat, it's a death threat regardless. The acceptable level of quantity of death threats is zero. You're just talking at cross-purposes. If the politician is receiving death threats and that they're toxic ones, then he's talking nonsense as that poster said, because obviously there is a quantity above zero and the politician is talking about the quality.

>Why are you both arguing about whether politicians should put up with death threats in exchange for their do-nothing £80k job?
I know, right? It should be obvious that nobody should have to put up with death threats as part of their job. Also stop threatening to kill people you have no intention of actually killing, and just kill already.
|>>|| No. 29084
It could also be argued as obvious that nobody should have to put up with being told what they can and can't say in any given situation.
|>>|| No. 29085
It could, but it would be obvious that anyone that did so would be wrong.

Mould doesn't work that way. The visible patch you see is a bloom much like a mushroom but the organism/organisms reach deep into the loaf and as a rule you should at least toss out the two neighbouring slices.
But yeah, I couldn't be arsed and just cut it off risking an upset tummy.
I do wonder why the hell Politicians thought twitter membership would be a good idea. It's not even just that they cry to twitter when things don't go their way but there's so little to gain from so much risk that they will say something crazy.

If they'd just hurry up and stop it already he wouldn't need to be there shouting in the first place.
