Picture being a lad who never really moved on from Britchan. Now imagine that you're disheartened once you've gained enough self-awareness after several years of endless spamming to realise posting about the likes of Simon Bennett is completely falling on death ears. You're out of touch; the world has moved on without you. You decide to create a new meme, one for the ages, one that current posters of the board will therefore be able to recgonise; how they'll laugh and rejoice each time you spam it! You know a fat kid and you've got pictures of him outside Greggs and working at Timpsons, you just need an angle... The pie master.

Elon Musk: pedo guy insult was 'not classy' but not meant literally

...Musk’s primary defense, which he reiterated numerous times, was that he did not intend to call Unsworth a pedophile, but instead was using “pedo guy” to mean “creepy old guy”.

“Just as I thought it was obvious that he did not mean to physically sodomize me with a submarine, I thought it was obvious that I didn’t mean he was a pedophile,” Musk said. He argued that he did not retract his statement when he initially apologized to Unsworth because that “would have been worse”. “If you call someone a motherf’er, I think it would actually seem sarcastic to say, ‘I didn’t mean that he committed incest’,” Musk explained. “That would have seemed disingenuous.”

Jacob Bronowski, despite not being a historian as such, gives one of the most beautiful overviews of human development I've ever come across in The Ascent of Man. It's more like anthropology, really, or a kind of history of science -- but the scope goes a lot wider than that, drawing on culture, biology, geography, and politics.

I'd recommend watching the television series and using the book as a companion. Finding this series in my early twenties genuinely made me a more a more compassionate person. If I could redesign a history curriculum from scratch, I'd probably draw heavily on this work.

/v/22958 How'd You Like "The Irishman" (2019)?
I really enjoyed this film and it's growing on me more and more since I saw it last week. I'm perfectly happy to hear people slate things I enjoy, but all the negative things I see people saying about it are just wrong opinions. I was totally focused on it throughout and the final half an hour might have been my favourite part of the whole film. Youngest De Niro looks bad, but other than that the youngification didn't bother me because it was a necessity for this kind of story (it's not the same as resurrecting Peter Cushing like in that God awful Rogue One film). A story which I don't think is getting enough credit for how well it weaves together all the different eras it takes place it.

That fish conversation's going to baffle people from now until the heat death of the Universe, at least it has me.

/uni/6397 Alcohol
I read a lot of things about alcohol throughout my life, such as:
- It will destroy your liver;
- You will go to hell;
- It slows the ageing process down;
- It will kill you;
- It kills bacteria;
- Etc.

My question is, if I have raw chicken, and drink 90% Polish grass Vodka, will it kill the Salmonella?

Basically, if I have a bad tummy and drink alcohol, can I get better?

I drank it consistently although not that heavily transitioning from my late teenage years to early adulthood. I will say it probably impacted my health in a very negative manner coupled with my sedentary computer NEET lifestyle and barely working out.

Can't even process things that fast anymore and I often struggle to find the right words for my sentences in realtime talk and if I say something erroneous I'll try to correct myself.

I do hope I don't have early-onset dementia, that would suck a great deal.

I'm fairly sure that talking on the computer and talking in person use different parts of the brain. You may be overestimating how much damage the alcohol did and underestimating how much better trained you are to talk via a keyboard than in actual face-to-face human interactions.

That's not how praying works. It's a ritual thing. You have to be clean - clean clothes, purified yourself (Wudhu), etc. Be clean inside and out. You have to do that five times a day, which is mandatory. If you want the bonus rounds, you can pray all the extra prayers to get sweet brownie points to level up after you die.

With that all being said, I am still deeply troubled by what will happen to me after I die. Referring back to what I have been taught when I was young - the punishment is worse for those who were taught better and went astray.

There's some degree of dispute about whether it's forbidden or merely frowned upon, but the hadith are pretty clear that wearing garments below the ankle is not cool.

Here’s what happened. We went to a restaurant. It's cash-only. She put £10 down. I go and get £20 from an ATM, return to the restaurant, put £20 down, and take her £10. She wanted to try my jacket earlier, and we're still wearing one another's jackets. I put £10 in her jacket pocket, and wear it back to mine. Next morning, my flatmate asks for cash to pay a cleaner, and I can’t find the tenner. Later that day we go to a bar. It’s cash only. She says she’ll pay, gets £10 from her purse, then looks sheepish, then looks at me and says, “Oh, I think I made a mistake. I think I took your money”.

I ask her why. She said she got confused. It surprises her that it’s a big deal for me. We go and sit down. I say “I don’t trust you”. She said she was confused. She’s upset, and cries. After a while, she says she doesn’t think we can be together because she doesn’t want to be with somebody who doesn’t trust her, who thinks she’s a thief. We talk, it calms, and we make up.

Except every time I replay the episode, it hurts. I’m quite free with my money with my friends, and the cynic in me thinks she thought I wouldn’t miss it. Then she realised that I would notice, so she tried to pass it off as a mistake. She said she was confused when she put the money in her wallet. But when she got it out again, she came to a realisation that she'd mistakenly taken my money (the minutiae: her £10 in the restaurant was her last cash; she said she realised her mistake when she went to pay at the bar because she'd used her last cash in the restaurant; the smaller minutiae, she knew I knew she'd used all her cash).

Very sorry for the finickityness of the situation. It hurts me because I like her, and because it's so stupid. We've spent a lot of money doing things together over the past 6 months. I wonder whether I should press her for an explanation that she probably can't provide. I think a positive course of action would be to not raise it again, start looking elsewhere, and in the time it takes to get anything else going, see if I'm able to trust her again.

I don't think OP is emotionally mature enough to have relationships.

They don't seem like the are capable of dealing with any problems without looking for a sinister motive. I'm also concerned with the pushing them to tears. I think this story ends in OP being one of those abusive controlling people who acts like nothing is their fault. And they can't help but take restitution for any grievance to the absurd where as a normal person wouldn't even perceive a grievance had happened.

OP lad overreacted for a tenner , obviously, and it'd have been better to let it slide if it was the first time anything of the sort had happened.

That said, can I ask you lads- How much money does a bird have to accidentally nick before it does become a problem for you? Or, for that matter, how many times would you give the benefit of the doubt before you started to get suspicious? Not trying to be a cunt just genuinely posing the question for debate.

For instance, my ex developed a habit of "accidentally" overspending, and me having to front her half of the rent. I let her off the first couple of times, naturally, but I had to say no eventually. If I'd let her carry on, I'd only be setting the precedent that it's okay for her to behave with complete financial irresponsibility, and I'd always be there to pull her out.

At the time I wondered if I was being similarly petty to the OP in this instance, but I feel pretty confident drawing a line was the right thing to do. It can be a hard thing to judge in anything other than hindsight.

>How much money does a bird have to accidentally nick before it does become a problem for you?

Probably it would have to be a couple of hundred quid before I started having doubts about it being an accident.

>how many times would you give the benefit of the doubt before you started to get suspicious?

It's one of those "know it when I see it" type judgements. I've had girlfriends that were just a bit scatterbrained, so a lot of things I'd assume were her being thick rather than thieving. Then I've had others that were very organised and I'd find it hard to believe they would make the same mistake more than a couple of times. It's not hard to identify a pattern in this sort of thing, I'm speaking from experience, not with a partner but with a family member.

When it comes to rent and loaning money to your partner, I'm much the same as you, it's fine in general but if you overspend every month and rely on me to dig you out then you're being a knob.

>How much money does a bird have to accidentally nick before it does become a problem for you? Or, for that matter, how many times would you give the benefit of the doubt before you started to get suspicious?

I don't see why the amount would matter beyond simple plausibility. The smart answer is if it makes you suspicious then you try to confirm it first which may involve leaving money out or thinking about whether this conforms with a picture of her character in general.

Become a shameless gold-digger with a mommy-complex, lads. You merely have to watch out that most of your clothes don't become her 'presents'.

>For instance, my ex developed a habit of "accidentally" overspending, and me having to front her half of the rent

She can fuck right off.

> Maybe I'm just not romantic, but "Will you be my girlfriend" has always made me cringe.

Quite. As I said, I didn't use those exact words but the general thrust of what I said was along the lines of we should no longer just be two people who shag but should be somewhat officially a couple, which is to say I might call her my girlfriend and vice versa.

Anyway, her interpretation of the whole thing was quite different to mine, which would have been fine in a romantic comedy but was fucking miserable in real life.

I've always maintained that the British don't really date, we just get sambuccad up to the point where it's obvious that we both want it (otherwise, why on else would we still both be there drinking however many hours later?).

If she was a millennial or younger, I think it's sort of come to mean that by neccessity. I think me and my mates were of the last generation who lived the dream of moving out in our late teens/early 20s and spending a few years getting up to sitcom drunken mates antics; and even then we were late to the party and it cost us more than it should have. I feel as though the younger generation coming up today are consciously aware from the word go that in order to comfortably fly the nest, or gain any sort of real foothold in life, you've got to have found someone to split the bill with already.

Slowly but surely I think we'll end up like Japan, with young people who can't functionally court one another at all. Online dating is the first step towards it, for those of us who still have some sense of social liberty it's fine but you do notice a lot of people treat it like a job application. Give it another ten or twenty years and they'll be marrying the first person they move in with for the sake of ease and just not taking to each other until retirement.

I've really lost track of what all these generations actually mean but she was born mid 90s so I'd say end of the millennials / first of the gen-z's border, I guess.

> I think me and my mates were of the last generation who lived the dream of moving out in our late teens/early 20s and spending a few years getting up to sitcom drunken mates antics; and even then we were late to the party and it cost us more than it should have.

Likewise. When I was 21 I could land a 4x minimum wage job and fuck off the hell far away from home, split a stupidly (relatively for the time, the same place would cost maybe three or four times that today) expensive flat with some mates and basically live a 24/7 party during my early twenties.

(Obviously none of this was particularly intelligent, if I'd taken the stupid amount of rent I was paying and even half the money I spent on alcohol and retarded clubs every week and thrown it in a savings account..... but then I wouldn't have the stories, right?).

> consciously aware from the word go that in order to comfortably fly the nest, or gain any sort of real foothold in life, you've got to have found someone to split the bill with already.

I feel you could be right about that. She was always on about how she wasn't going to leave home until she got married, and harping on about how she felt she hadn't achieved anything because everyone she went to school with had either got married or had a kid (as if being a single parent is somehow desirable). Maybe I was just the mad bint's meal ticket.

>but you do notice a lot of people treat it like a job application

Sadly, I think we're now seeing this as a standard. Because just like an HR person at a company, you get to choose between about two or three dozen, well, applicants, and you are only going to have a limited time to concern yourself with each one of them. And being spoiled for choice that way IMO also means that you are less willing to let something run its course and get to know the person better while not being put off by annoying quirks they may have and that are apparent from the beginning. Why invest all that time, when you can just as easily move on to the next person. But I maintain that it's merely an illusion of choice, and that it gets you no further in finding the right person for you than in the old days.

I remember a time when online dating consisted of putting an ad on some local events web site in your area, and then you would wait impatiently for three or four people to e-mail you. And the odds were against you in the first place if you were a lad writing to a lass with a very attractive photo of herself. Even that was kind of radical in the late 90s to early 2000s, because growing up, when I was a weelad, putting an ad in an actual paper looking for a partner always had kind of a connotation of desperation attached to it. You had exhausted all the ways of finding a partner within your social circles, or you were just too ugly or too messed up in the first place to find somebody among them, so that was your last straw. Kind of funny how that has changed. But like I said, it needs to be taken with a grain of salt, and finding Mr. or Ms. Right to me seems no easier than back then. Just the parameters of it have changed.

Someone was paid, most likely a fair bit of money, to come up with the idea of tackling knife crime by messages on fried chicken boxes.

People like the "one neat trick that solves complex societal problem" rather than the nuanced incremental changes, or at least the media do because it's easier to get their heads around and report on a radical quick fix.

Politicians also love something that can be condensed into a sound bite. At the current time, unsurprisingly, most of the noise is about A Levels and university admissions; Labour want students to apply to university after they have their results because they claim that poorer students are most likely to have their grades predicted too low and will end up accepting an unconditional offer from a 'lesser' university than they would be admitted to based on their actual grades.

This appears to be a good thing but in isolation it is an oversimplification of a wider and more complex issue. We should also be asking why teachers in disadvantaged areas are much more likely to under-predict the grades of their students; the Sutton trust found that they tend to have the greatest misconceptions about Oxbridge and are far less likely to encourage pupils to study there. Are they more jaded and does this rub off into their teaching? Do they have much less belief and optimism for their students? Are they less engaged with their students, perhaps due to larger class sizes and more disruptive children, so they don't actually know them well enough to predict their grades with as much accuracy? If we want to emulate the likes of Finland then it's clear that we need to be almost halving class sizes. We should also be asking whether students from poorer backgrounds are given even support to understand how important where you study actually is and that a degree from the university of Manchester is far more valuable than a degree from Manchester met. We should be asking whether we have too many 'lesser' institutions and if some of these should be converted into polys. We should be asking why so many universities are making unconditional offers in the first place. We should be asking whether too many students are going to university. You get the idea, otherwise you're just papering over the cracks.

>A man has died after a fight at a chicken shop in London.
>The Met said two men suffered stab wounds and head injuries in a fight in Downham Way, Lewisham, at about 23:55 BST on Friday.

Further evidence, if it were needed, that knife crime and fried chicken are intertwined.

Does anybody know who this sexy creature is? At first i thought it novel to watch the progress of a spider egg sac on my bathroom window, but now there are two of them and i don't particularly like the idea of being overrun by 500 tiny spiders. I was bitten 3 times by a false widow over the summer.

This is basically the kind of thing I wank to these days. Makes me sad in a way; what ever happened to that 18 year old pervert reading g-fur comics and playing adventure games where the aim was to be oviposited? Suddenly tits are enough, what a let down.
