Huddersfield charity shop finally says goodbye to a shutter which lasted 26 years


http://www.examiner.co.uk/news/west-yorkshire-news/huddersfield-charity-shop-finally-says-10780879

That's it. That's literally it. A charity shop has replaced one of its roller shutters after having the same one for 26 years. It's all go in Huddersfield.

I challenge you lads to find a more pointless news story than this.

Well Shinigami beckoning me on to the suicide forest to die whilst alone dehydrated and sleep deprived on the side of a remote ash field on Mt Fuji at midnight after having endured a 40 degree temperature change and confronting bears with an ice axe in the last 24 hours.

That is pretty mad. I'm in the same circumstances as you and the wildest thing I've done is eaten a muffin served to me off a silver platter a woman in a latex pony suit had attached to her buttplug.

That's given me food for thought to be fair, though. I do have a bit of a chip on my shoulder at times, where people don't seem to take me very seriously or dismiss my opinions on things because, to them, I'm still a young lad and they assume I've done nothing since I left school than play videogames and smoke weed. I was in a band that eventually ended up in a book about the scene it was involved in. I've run my own business. I've been to the States, I've been to most parts of Europe, I've been to most places in this country. I've participated in sexual debauchery they likely wouldn't even imagine exists.

But of course I'm not even thirty, I look like a lazy stoner and my general demeanour doesn't do much to dispel that idea. So obviously that's what I am. I can be safely dismissed when the adults are talking.

I've been to my fair share of weird fetish events in my time to boot too, but I've found once you get over societies taboos a lot of the 'weird' stuff I've seen in them isn't too special. I've seen a couple of performers who had genuine impressive talents with hula hoops and fire, but mostly it is 'what have I got in my vaginia?'/ 'I can use a staple gun on my skin.' and most of the punters are trying far too hard to look cool to have fun with it.

I'm sure your latex pony lady it was all about the execution it self more than the details you can describe (although the silver platter sounds quite unique). Because when I think about the highlights of fetish events for me they usually are just perfect moments in all the chaos, where the right people played their role perfectly, like some sort of social resonating. Sort of like Gary King's perfect night in 'The World's End.'

To be fair I've only been to a couple when I was a younger lad and pretty quickly decided it's not for me. There are a lot of people who are, as you say, simply trying too hard. I have never been able to stand the cunts who make kink into part of their self identity, either.

Still. Most people's idea of sexual degeneracy doesn't go much further than doggystyle and maybe a threesome.

>>19826

Exactly. I have cathartic fantasies sometimes about setting the record straight when I have to give my leaving speech (workplace tradition), and watching their jaws drop. But it isn't worth caring that much. It just gets to me.

A group of metal detectorists were taken to hospital after unknowingly eating cakes apparently spiked with cannabis in a village called High Melton near Doncaster.

Thirteen men and women fell ill at Coil To The Soil's rally on Saturday. A detectorist spokesman said: "People could have died. It was lucky that no children or people on medication with serious health problems ate the cake."

A large fleet of medical staff were called to the scene, including eight ambulances, a rapid response vehicle, two doctors, two clinical supervisors and a Hazardous Area Response Team. Yorkshire Ambulance Service said two people were treated on the spot.


https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-south-yorkshire-49480491

Some burst into song, others started dancing around the marquee and some collapsed on the tent floor as the drug took hold.

Sounds like a bit of an overreaction for a slide of space cake.

It staggers me that of an entire group of thirteen people, nobody twigged that they had just eaten hash cake. If I accidentally ate a load of space cake, I'd just think "ah fuck, I've eaten a load of space cake" instead of calling for an ambulance. Did none of the eight ambulance crews figure it out before calling in the hazmat team? Has nobody in High Melton ever eaten a space cake before? Who is this spokesman who seems to think that someone could have died?

Fuck me, normal people are boring.

Suppose you know what it feels like because you tried it a few times before. If you don't detect it in the flavour it would take you by surprise so you'd have to react while under the influence, compare what you feel with past experience and come to the conclusion that yep, this thing you expected to have no psychedelic effect contained cannabis and the effects are perfectly in-line with that conclusion. There's a reason it's considered poor form to dose someone without their knowledge. A good chunk of the article is scare mongering, but this is spot on:

I've done a load of drugs, but I'm not confident I'd immediately identify how or why I was suddenly high as fuck. I'd probably jump to "help I'm dying" before "I've been spiked" honestly, because who wastes good weed like that?

They were, afterall, metal detectorists. You're not just looking at normal people boring, you're looking at proper, train spotting, anorak wearing, stamp collecting, geology enthusiast levels of boring. I don't know why nobody seems to be accounting for that fact.

How much overlap do you imagine there is between the type of person who is into weed enough to have experience with edibles, and the type of person who's into metal detectoring enough to attend the metal detectorists convention in Doncaster?

Evidently at least one; the person who baked the cake. I'd have thought metal detectoring would lend itself well to doing whilst stoned.

Company policy is invariably to just hand over the money. The compo payout for an employee or customer who was wounded or killed in a robbery would be vastly greater than the value of the cash in the till, so it's just not worth arguing even if the threat doesn't seem remotely credible.

Still nothing wrong with backing up your claim by showing the knife. You're already in for armed robbery anyway, regardless of whether or not you actually have a knife. I think there have been court cases where somebody got done for armed robbery just for poking his index finger through his coat pocket and saying he had a gun.

So why not present your weapon to the poor lad you're robbing so he'll at least know you're not a pretentious cunt.

And besides, why say you've got a knife. If you're bullshitting anyway, why not say you've got a gun in your coat pocket. Would convince me more than the prospect of getting grazed by an imaginary knife across the counter.
