438151 The New Adventures of Mid-Week
Now that all the excitement has died down I thought it time we redo the mid-week thread. What are you two up-to?


I've organised a date for the weekend but have come to realise that I'd better keep something of a conversation going unless I want to be stood up. This is going to be tedious. I might want to think about doing some work today as well.

I'm probably going to get called Lisa Simpson for this post but do you ever feel a bit surprised at just how much of an odd one you are in the family? Women always ask me about my relationship with my family and appear shocked that someone can be distant but I genuinely have nothing in common with them. I can get along with them on a 1-1 basis but they're all rather...common and simple. Tapped if you will.

Anyway, bit of a family gathering over the weekend that I soon found myself sitting in silence while people spoke of whatever drama toxic people have caused in their lives interspersed with empty platitudes you'd read on facebook. Ended up drinking in silence like at every family gathering and wondering if this is what married life will be like.

I feel the same way about my parents, to be frank they annoy me.
I guess I'm the odd one out but they do grate me all the time I'm around them. If I were ever to lash out or tell them to stop bothering me I'm the cunt so I never do.
I find peace in my solitude, I'm far from lonely. I just like to be alone with my thoughts. I doubt they'd understand this since they're from a different generation.

You sound like you're embarrassed by your roots more than being vexed by theirs.

I doubt EVERY conversation being had was about gossip and platitudes are an easy way to convey sentiment and can be taken at face value if your family really are that simple.

At one point, someone would have asked you what you've been working on or what you've been up to and instead of discussing it you said "nothing much" and they left you alone. Even if they don't understand what you like or what you do, if you're enthusiastic about it they'll respond positively. If they thinks it's weird ask "why is it weird?". I guarantee you their brain will stall, giving you the chance to make a comparison to something they like and continue the conversation.

All of this would require effort on your part though and I suspect you're much too jaded to make it, or perhaps you're also simple and don't have the savvy to ingratiate yourself with a gaggle of other simpletons. They do say if you can't explain something to a 5yo, you haven't fully understood it yourself.

My other half has squeezed all of the washing up liquid into a Kilner bottle.

Lads, I don't get it. I really don't get it. I mean, I gave up trying to understand women a long time ago but every now and then something happens that leaves me utterly flummoxed beyond all comprehension. Is 'WITH NOTHING TO SAY BECAUSE I AM A CUNT' still wordfiltered? I mean, she's moved it from one bottle... to another bottle. It doesn't even pour that well so you always end up using more than you intended to. I doubt anyone in the entire history of humankind has ever thought "washing up liquid in a glass bottle, nice." It's bright yellow and she also pours the cooking oil into a Kilner bottle, which she doesn't store too far away from it, so I can almost certainly guarantee at some point in the future she'll end up frying food in washing up liquid. The lid is also a faff. Just... why? Why, lads?

Can you lads please reassure me that your lasses do stupid shit like this?

Nah, big gardens have a billygoat. 4 gears and 16bhp. Loud in a way that a mere leaf blower can only dream of.
However, I barely use it any more, just use the mower with the brush & collector on the back, much quicker.
Still, been doing autumn gardening this weekend, so plenty of 2-stroke action. Chainsaws, hedge trimmers, brushcutter. Shoulders are pure pain.

Ouch. It was from a 30 odd second clip on Youtube about facial recognition ghosts or some shit. I can't remember what I googled to find it.
Do you mean literally see with your eyes or think yourself into 'seeing' like i do with severed heads in the toilet? I've noticed a lot of my more intense dreams involve facial disfigurement and contortion. I really can't think what it means - the imidiate answer or being twofaced or of dual identity doesn't apply well to my concious self.

So am I the only one who is getting a bit annoyed by this whole Greta Thunberg cult, or am I just too much of a cold hearted cynic that the world would be better off without?

I don't doubt the legitimate concern of her generation over climate change, after all it will fall to them to sort out the utter fucking mess that we have left the planet in, but all the awards that she is now being showered with are IMO just middle aged and old people's guilt over their own failure to save the planet's climate despite having had decades of prior warning, and who lost their way and succumbed to high carbon footprint consumerism somewhere between 1990s road protest villages and today's school runs in a 4x4. None of it feels sincere or genuine, it's more like, yeah, just take all these awards and shut the hell up already.

And parents whose children now protest every Friday or so are now engaging in pissing matches on twitter and Instagram to show off which one of their kids gets the most involved. As one commenter said, nothing good has ever come of a youth protest movement that was applauded by parents.

When you are done being a cunt, think about what you said, and that the human element of those climate models as it applies here is basically defined by our production of greenhouse gases and the overuse of land and other natural resources in the last 200 years.

Humans have been around for longer than the current interglacial period has lasted, and have probably always had a slight impact on the global climate, but we used to be in harmony and equilibrium with nature. The natural resources we used had a chance to recover and grow back. It is only since about the early to mid-20th century that our exploitation of the planet's resources is no longer sustainable. And that is where those climate models come in and where climatologists argue that the spike in temperatures in recent decades can no longer be explained by natural climate fluctuations, but is the result of human activity.

It's not helpful to say that we are part of nature, too. Yes, if you add the human factor to climate models, then it explains global warming perfectly. But that is then completely missing the point.

There is no harmony or equilibrium in nature you absolutely berk. Focusing on humans we absolutely have had a catastrophic impact on environs as soon as we turned up including in Britain where the forest disappeared.

I'm such a dumb fucking idiot and it has ruined my confidence (anus)

So I (22 male) have always been fucked in the head. Starting a few years ago, I started experiencing with anal play while masturbating. Well, it went way overboard and I bought a huge sex toy and basically made it fit in my ass even though it hurt a bit. I'm fucked in the head, yes. Then about 4 months ago I had my anal virginity taken by an old man who surprise fisted me with 4 fingers inside and rotating the hand too. Both of these activities have stretched/worn out the skin around my anus (due to the anus being forced to expand). So now it's like I have excess skin around the asshole (not hemorrhoids).

Now my problem is that I got this loose "extra" skin and my ass falls out a little after I poop. If I squat down naked I can see some skin hanging down behind the asshole where my ass crack is supposed to be. It looks fucking awful and I feel like I'm an 70 year old man with anal prolapse. I already look fucked up and worn out, how am I gonna look when I'm 40? There's no way a medical procedure can fix this. I'm willing to post photos but I really just kind of wanna sleep forever. I don't know how I've managed to ruin myself so much...

I want to start over but that's not possible and it's just over for me. I'm so fucking tired of hurting about how big of a piece of shit I am. I have RUINED my own body. At this point trying to get better is only going to feel like I'm fighting a losing battle. I just wanna fucking cry in bed and stop going to the gym / work / talk to anyone. I really dont want anyone to say "you're depressed so seek help" or something. This is the cause of my sadness. Either it ends or I do.

(A good day to you Sir!)

If you leave your arse alone for a few months it will be as tight and fresh as when it was new.

What interests me is that there were, as far as I'm aware, pre-Christian astronomers who understood perfectly well how the solar system really worked. Civilisations like the Egyptians were mad boffs at stars, and I would have no trouble accepting they knew what was really going on, but we can't really tell what they thought because so much of it is muddled up with the various celestial bodies having fights and eating each other and giving birth what have you.

I like to contemplate what it would be like, if you were a 5th century Byzantine intellectual, and everyone thought you were a nutter conspiracy theorist because you keep banging on about how the ancient societies were actually right about astronomy instead of the up to date Christian model, and how the Church operates a vast cover-up to keep everyone thinking the Earth is the centre of the universe. You'd be fucking seething wouldn't you.

A lot of the knowledge that sparked the renaissance and modern age was hidden in libraries in the Arab world during the mediaeval period. Even philosophers like Plato had been completely forgotten in Christian Europe. It was mainly the Spanish reconquista driving the Arabs out of southern Spain which gave Christians access to Arab books and scrolls which were partly original works of Arab natural scientists and partly translations of Greek originals. It reintroduced Europeans to a whole wealth of information and ancient science that had eluded them for centuries.

LA is a properly mental city. It's just miles and miles and miles of perfectly rectangular grid. It's a wonder anybody can get anywhere, but then it's also a wonder people can't just avoid the traffic by taking exactly the same route two or three blocks over and then correcting at the end.

I bet there have been all sorts of interesting studies into how the traffic works.

I've driven in LA rush hour traffic and yes, it's slow and of large proportions, but I don't think it's as bad as people make it out to be. The major problem is that our septic cousins have no idea to drive.

I remember having debates on several occasions with yanks, and they can't seem to understand that if you leave a gap for people to merge in, traffic flows smoother. They always said "but I want to get there first!" without understanding that if everyone wants to get there first, nobody's getting there any faster.

My Yank friend was shouting at me, terrified, when I saw someone wanting to change lanes coming up to a red light, so I stopped leaving 2 car lengths for him to come across. My friend was absolutely convinced someone was going to slam into the back of me, without understanding that the people behind me can't see what's in front, so how is leaving a gap any different to there being cars there? As a result, the fella got into my lane (and actually looked back out of his car in amazement that someone let him in), and he didn't have to force his way across when the lights went green.

The telling thing I find is when there is ever a video of a pedestrian getting hit by a car on reedit they lose their minds talking about how they deserve it. Even when the car is driving on the wrong side of the street at high speed they will downvote an idea of sense that the car driver reckless or that being able to cross a road is a basic human right. No concept of anything other than 'car go VROOOM!'

438745 Of .gs and dot-coms: a memorial for the future
My mates were over on Saturday night. One of them used my phone to add some shit to the party playlist and noticed that I had /*/ open on my mobile's Chrome.

They both exclaimed about how they'd forgotten about this place and seemed humoured at the fact that it still existed in some dusty old corner of the web and more to the point that I still used it to chat shit with the same few faceless strangers. Joke's on them - we've got Discord and compulsory screen names now(!)

The gesture made me (possibly unreasonably) pensive. I cast a thought to the impromptu domain expiry of a few months back and how easily it was for those of us still visiting this shrine of yesteryear to lose touch with it entirely outside of direct IP access and/or signposting via other media. It reminded me of the countless other sites and networks that had come and gone during the web's golden age and how they have largely been refined to colloquial in-jokes and references uttered in increasingly smaller circles.

Bebo was bought out and sold to Amazon's Twitch last year after they outbid Discord for the rights.
Digg is now some bottom of the barrel clickbait site that nobody reads.
Livejournal, Xanga, and acrobat have gone the way of being overblown by the wave of in-your-face amateurish long-reads and social media formatting that has plagued Medium since its inception.
Myspace... exists.
What next and what will we remember of it?

To borrow a term from The Other Place, I suppose you could consider this the .gs "doomer" thread, though one of dead pixels and cleared gigabytes rather than apocalyptic neo-plagues.

Totse was my first home on the internet. It felt trangressive and exciting, but the people were nice and hanging out on IRC was fun. The community still sort of exists on zoklet.net, but it is definitely not the same.

I learned a lot about online interaction and really social interaction in general from that lot.

How much of this fair land of ours have you lads actually visited?

I've just been thinking about it and there's so many places in Britain I've never particularly laid my eyes on, especially the scenery and landscapes of Scotland. What are the "hidden gems" here that you would recommend people really should visit at least once in their lives? Unhidden gems too, for that matter.

The lakes are lovely but will also be ram packed at the minute. Lancashire is very nice, but as you're from The Other Place it's probably too close to home and also your bitter rivalry will ruin the experience.

Scotland is personally my idea of a lovely place with a lovely drive, basically the whole fucking lot of it, but the North Coast 500 route is full of the sorts of locations you describe, and the drive is, of course, spectacular.

I'm not up on how friendly Scottish people are to us dragging our viruses across the border and wandering about small towns at the moment, but if it's all okay, then that's what I'd be doing.

My missus lived there for the best part of her childhood so she has a bit of the accent, I could get her to do all the talking to conceal our Englishness.

Any particular recommendations? More seriously, I'll leave it til next year if the Scots are still taking the 'rona a bit more seriously than we are down here, but it'd be good to know.

Would a holiday home be a decent investment? By this I mean buying on a holiday park rather than an actual house where someone could live. It's my last day in Cornwall and these are for sale where I'm staying:-

They're leasehold, with about 960 years left on the lease, and there will be costs like cleaning and site fees but properties similar to the one listed for £40k were being let out for over a grand per week this summer, albeit with refurbished kitchens and bathrooms. I can't imagine there's much potential for the resale value to go up but it seems like a decent investment unless I'm missing a fairly obvious catch.

Walking in the Yorkshire Wolds in mid-Spring is an absolute joy. Disused railway tracks, chalk hills, dales and glacial valleys. A properly underrated part of the country.
Please come visit unless you're from West Yorkshire or a Southerner.

Too flat, no trees, it's shite. I'd rather walk along the canal in Dewsbury.

Absolute Humberfag cope, jesus.

Has anyone ever attempted to make a foodstuff that is 100% useful to your body where none of it will be shat out the other end?

I'm not one for conspiracy theories, but it seems awfully convenient that this thread was made a few months before Covid-19 escaped from a laboratory in China. Covid-19 may well be their early attempt at making airborne weapons-grade autism.

All I'm saying is Chinkspooks may be reading our posts and getting ideas. Be vigilant.

(A good day to you Sir!)

Seriously hoping they steal our ideas for a tap that produces custard then. We should probably have patented that one.

The person who posted about a soup tap on rudgwicksteamshow.co.uk a week or so before that thread would have a strong counter-claim to the idea.
