Fair enough. I'm not even sure if I would want to meet the guy by this point.

Well, this has been a whole thing. My parents never explicitly told me I was the child of a donor, but I figured it out eventually. I am a bit of a spergic cunt with no idea how to act normally, and it was somewhat exaggerated during my teen years; it really shit my dad up that I went ahead and requested the info without consulting him, but I felt like it was my right to know. Family has never been even remotely important to me, but I feel it could be catastrophic in families with a strong bond.

As I said yesterday, you don't have to look that similar to look similar enough.

Genetics is a complex thing, though. I don't really think I look like anyone on my mum's side, but my grandfather died in 1985, and both my grandmother and grandfather's individual parents (I'm not sure how to word this without it sounding like they shared parents; they did not) died when they were young, so there are few, if any pictures of any of my direct male lineage.

Rape victims among those to be asked to hand phones to police

Victims of crimes, including those alleging rape, are to be asked to hand their phones over to police - or risk prosecutions not going ahead.

Consent forms asking for permission to access information including emails, messages and photographs have been rolled out in England and Wales. It comes after a number of rape and serious sexual assault cases collapsed when crucial evidence emerged.

Victim Support said the move could stop victims coming forward. But police and prosecutors say the forms can plug a gap in the law which says complainants and witnesses cannot be forced to disclose relevant content from phones, laptops, tablets or smart watches.

Director of Public Prosecutions Max Hill said such digital information would only be looked at where it forms a "reasonable" line of inquiry, with material going before a court only if it meets stringent rules.

This seems like a worrying turn of events and the unintended consequence of the political pressure to increase the number of rape convictions spearheaded by Alison Saunders.

During my current job and my last job, I've been made to feel like the second choice candidate, despite eventually getting the position.

The first instance, I only heard about them considering another candidate until a couple of months in. They decided on somewhere else shortly after the interview, and I had to re-interview to get in. Tried not to take it personally and all that, it was a big step up for me after all.

This job really took the piss, though. I interviewed for a 100% position, which was eventually split between myself and another person 50%... the other half went to a closely-related family member of one of the interviewers, no less.

They didn't make me interview twice, but the other one ended up taking on the more simple and immediate tasks leaving me in the wind for months about what my job role actually was.

Is there something I'm doing wrong, here? Is it an indication of something? Is it just that hiring is often a process of elimination rather than selection?

Nothing I can see, the first story is just the fact of life these people have no prior relationship with you, I'm sure you are lovely but then I'm sure the other 50+ people who applied are lovely too. That's just life you are as mundane as the rest of us

The second is just bullshit nepotism, the last job I interview for it got into a farce by the end because they didn't want to admit I was the better candidate on paper but they wanted to hire someone else because they were the mate of the guy he'd be closely working with presumably because the likes of their bosses boss would be wholly unamused.

For my career break I came second in a job interview. I later learnt that the admin head only wanted to hire women, something I've mentioned on /job/ before, so I lost out to someone who turned out to be useless but possessed a vagina. However, I impressed other people at the interview so that when someone went off on long-term sick I was hired on a temporary contract, which was eventually made permanent.

I'm now in a managerial position so I'm responsible for recruitment in my department. There's been occasions where there's been a dearth of suitable candidates. There's been other occasions where I've had to choose one from a number of strong candidates when any one of them would have absolutely walked it at on a different occasion, some of whom I've contacted when we've had a vacancy at a later date. You can try your absolute best but you can't control who you are up against. That's life.

There's no guarantee that an employer has a decent hiring process. For some reason the recruitment for the graduate scheme at work is done by the admin head and she is as thick as pig shit, which most likely explains why four out of the last five graduates recruited have turned out to be a mistake.

Do some voluntary work or ask at the Jobcentre about work placements. It'll help build your confidence, get you back into the habit of working and you'll get a reference. It shouldn't affect your benefits.

There are loads of local organisations who offer back-to-work support programmes for the long term unemployed. You could do a bit of Googling, or ask at the Jobcentre or Citizens Advice.

You might want to consider your education options. If you don't have many qualifications, taking a vocational course at your local FE college might be a good route back into work. A recent qualification on your CV shows employers that you're actually motivated to get back into work, rather than just applying for stuff because the Jobcentre told you to.

Self-employment is also an option worth considering. You can get free mentoring, a loan to cover your start-up costs and claim the New Enterprise Allowance for the first six months.

If you're disabled/mentally ill there are a lot of services which give advice to people with these conditions looking for work.

The whole point of work is looking busy rather than actually doing work.

In a string of texts Griffiths called himself “Daddy”, promised money if he received racy images and described perverted and rough sex he claimed to have had with other women.

The shamed Tory wrote:

• “I’m going to need something filthy to put a smile on my face. I want to see you both naked.”

• “Take off the bra and panties… you’ve got Daddy in such a frenzy.”

• “I’m going to bring you to London and do whatever I want to you.”

• “I’m thinking maybe we need a flat for Daddy’s girls. I’m taken by you both. You girls are spectacular.”

Many more messages go into shocking detail about his liking for certain sexual acts and are too disgusting to print in full.

A Conservative MP who sent sexual messages to two barmaids has been cleared of wrongdoing by the parliamentary standards watchdog.

Andrew Griffiths, 48, resigned as small business minister last July after the messages were published in a newspaper. The watchdog said it found no evidence he sent them while he would have been engaged in parliamentary activities. Allegations he breached the House of Commons Code of Conduct were not upheld, it added.

Life could be really beautiful, if not for the combination of being coerced into work on the threat of poverty and having little control over what we really do there.

I feel like I've spent most of my life trying to crack this problem, how to live happily when such a system exists, or how to escape it altogether.

My method so far has been to train and educate myself into better, "freer" forms of employment, and it's worked out to some extent. But I still often feel immense money pressures, and an underlying feeling something is deeply wrong. There's a deep sense of insecurity, of running on a treadmill, one that prevents any kind of true happiness or contentedness.

I've read someone here mention the Buddhist "the glass is already broken" type of mindset, and I understand that not all things are perfect and stable, and why this realisation would help. But this aspect of life is entirely artificial, work and resource allocation don't need to take this form. It's an unnecessary kind of suffering. If we do accept suffering and precariousness, surely it should only be the truly necessary and unavoidable?

Anyway, I feel like I've tried multiple avenues to liberate myself. I've been in higher education and training for years, in an attempt to get into tolerable work, especially the kind of thing where I help others ("Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life"). While I'm grateful to have found semi-fulfilling work, I still feel suffocated. I've looked into frugal living and "financial independence"/FIRE. I've even tentatively tried political activism and collective organisation.

These are all ongoing projects, but I suspect the only way to truly get yourself out of the rat race is to either abandon it entirely, or to own enough capital that you have others make your money for you.

I want to open myself up to different methods, though. How have others navigated this problem?

Even on .gs a post will spring up that poses a novel new solution. The lad doing remote tech support, for example. We also seem to have an improbably high number of wealthy lads, here.

I'm sure you've watched enough Big Clive videos between you to bodge some kind of matter replicator. Once you've done that we're twelve months at most from being post-resource scarcity, the only issue then might be everyone having too many kids, but we should able to get off the planet quicker once the food and fuel issue it sorted. Actually no, we'd still be dependent on fossil fuels so maybe we're still knackered, but you'd have to check with GreenLad about that, I only really know about wild speculation.

The people I work with are pretty decent and my job is interesting, varied and valued. Hard days happen but you laugh it off with your mates which, even as an introvert, might be what you're missing. People are social animals defining themselves by those around them - Alasdair MacIntyre and all that.

I dunno, it looks like everyone has their own answer to this which is fair enough. I'm a lazy bastard so it probably helps that I have the expertise to slack off and still manage a decent enough job with the occasional bout of effort when absolutely necessary.

I've also been doing a fair bit of shagging this year.

> Appreciating what is good in your life can help you no matter what your station. But let's say, hypothetically, I'm already a highly emotionally developed (for lack of a better term) person, that I am appreciating what happiness there is in my life, but I'm still both extremely ambitious for myself and angry at the injustices that occur as a result of the current system. What then? What if I really am just searching for pragmatic solutions to a real world problem, and I've got the emotional side more or less sorted?

No idea lad, not going to lie.
Just one thing I've just recalled.
A Russian ex-con told me once. He'd been doing porridge for several years and that made him realise how little a human being actually needed for happiness.

My limited understanding is that soil is vastly decomposed matter like leaves, grasses and whatever happens to fall. So it makes sense that you could grow from processed grasses like rabbit droppings, plus the blackberry nutrient and seed that have passed through the fox. It'd be nice to test whether that snapshot of the ecosystem sustains itself.

It's more an introduction to botany and ecology than actually growing, but having blackberries next year would be a welcome result.

I'm still not sure I understand what you actually have in mind.
Rabbit droppings would make a perfectly fine manure if you had some way of gathering them in vast quantities, you're definitely better off just buying some compost or finding the manure of larger herbivores. Not a great idea to trespass on farmland but if there's a stables anywhere near you, the horses will regularly shit on the road and you can gather it up with a bag for free.

Most brambles are very hardy, you'll have noticed they tend to grow all over the place wild, but in their case
>Seed often does not germinate until the second year after shedding. Seeds have a hard seed coat and a chilling requirement to overcome. Plants take three years to flower from seed.
you're not going to get blackberries by next year. Unless you wait until spring and buy a young one. You could buy two and give one rabbit manure to see if it makes any difference to the growth if you're that keen on experimenting.

Don't play about with fox shit though, even if you were to sterilise it, it would smell fucking awful all the time.

/fat/3936 Fat bastard weight loss thread
Get in here fatlads.

I've made an effort to properly lose weight but have stalled in the last 2 months - and it's starting to creep up. I used to lift weights 3x/week and control the diet, but I can't lift for a while until some medical stuff gets sorted. This has taken a bit of a hit on my progress - or more likely,ive used it an excuse to slack.

What's your story?

P.s. I track calories and weight using my fitness pal.

A lot of what you're saying echoes my own fatlad story.

It took me a long time to realise that I'm just not the type of person who can 'willpower' myself into doing something, and I'm not the sort of person who can do moderation. I can too easily convince myself that the two pizzas tonight will somehow launch me into a new diet tomorrow, and do the same the next day, and the next, etc until I've effectively forgotten that I want to lose weight for another week or so.

The inability to moderate is the easy bit, if you start thinking of food as addiction, which it definitely is for me. You can't just have 'a little bit' of crack, so similarly I stopped allowing myself to have 'just one' bag of crisps or whatever, because it's never, ever just one bag. One cheat is basically failure in my mind and an easy way to convince myself the attempt at a diet is over, and that's not even getting into the actual chemical addictive properties of high carb/fat snack foods.

So my method, as shaky as it was, was to wait for one of those rare moments of actual determined focus on losing weight (I suspect you're in one now too) and jump on it. Try to eat well, 'proper food', but cut out junk entirely. Eat as much as I can for the first week or two, as long as it's whole food, or at least not crisps, sweets, and takeaways. Then as I get used to that, I'd start counting the calories. It's all about getting into a routine, and being honest with yourself that the first couple of weeks will be hell and you'll feel fucking useless and powerless, but you're definitely not. You can definitely eat properly for a day, then two days, then three, then a week, then a month.

I also found improving my mental state and general living helped. Apparently people who exercise regularly crave fewer junk foods, and I find that to be true - even just purposely walking once a day puts me in a fitness mindset and I find it easier to resist my trigger foods. Keeping my house tidy, keeping on top of errands and chores, these were all things I wasn't doing while sitting on my arse eating 5000 calories so when I started doing them, my whole mindset slowly and subtley changed. I felt less like a piece of shit who deserved to wallow, and more like a normal person who happened to have put on a load of weight, and I think, even just typing it now, I realise that's the key to it for me. Whenever I've felt worthless, useless, pointless, it's oh so easy to allow yourself to abuse your body, because why the fuck not?

I'm sorry for the rambling, but I know exactly where you're coming from. My only practical advice would be to take one day at a time, and try to think about what might actually make you accountable. For me it was simply proving that I could fight my own shitty brain, it might be something else for you, but like the otherlad says, long term thinking is needed.

This worked for me too somehow, despite for a bit different situation.
Regarding being a lard arse back in the day, I did will-power myself out of it. Mostly by cutting out junk food entirely, my only sort of exercise at that time was walking.
Sage because I didn't have a BMI of 39, so can't really advise you in any way, mate.

Unfortunately I can never make it past the two week mark. I think that's the point where you can really keep the habit up, but I always slip after a few days. I think that's the worst thing - I spend hours a day intensely hating myself for how much of a disgusting fat cunt I let myself once again become, but somehow cannot channel that into, well, losing weight.

Different lad here, feel a bit apprehensive giving this advice as I'm not sure it's the right thing, but when I need to focus on a goal I often set my environment up so that the only real outlet I have is working towards that end.

When I noticed computer games were becoming a timesink from real life activities, I sold my consoles. When I realised I'd get drunk on my own as a way to cope with anxiety, I stopped buying alcohol to keep in the house. When I noticed I was getting frustrated and developing nervous tics, I placed trainers and kit next to the door so I could go to the gym immediately.

Don't know how well this would work for your compliance problem, but I think there's a lot to be said for structuring your choices in such a way that you have only a few good options.

Do you think you could set yourself a challenge of sorts? Like, go veggie for a month, or something like that. Changing your diet, but also deciding to just try to eat differently than you usually do, not necessarily better than you usually do, just different - might be enough to trick yourself into getting into a new habit?

I realise it's hard, but the more you resign yourself to never being able to hack it, you truly never will. You've done it before, you objectively can do it again.

They're down to five. I can only assume that they've got a whole bunch of photos of various combinations of members so they can put one on the front page every time someone leaves.

Evening, /beat/. We're going to play a little game.

This is how it works: Someone posts a song. The other two of us reply with a song that we think they'll like based on that track and [optional] also post another song for others to respond to.

I heard something that sounded very similar vocally on 6 Music a week or two ago, but I can't remember what.

Anyway, here's Avant Gardener by Courtney Barnett:

Any excuse to recommend Starcadian.

Try Digital Versicolor by Glass Candy.

That's the only songs of theirs I know, but maybe some of their other stuff is more upbeat.

I need to do some reproductions of some religious artwork for someone, but all they have is poor quality home inkjet printer versions, they'll look rubbish when I blow them up.

Does anyone have any clue who painted these images and perhaps where I might be able to find some hi-res copies? I'm really struggling.

As far as I can tell, the first one at least was produced for Fratelli Bonella which is a publisher of religious art based in Milan. They could also just be one of the thousands of people selling shitty prints.
I had quite a thorough look for it and all I've learned is that Catholics do not give a fuck about crediting their artists. Maybe it's idolatry.
In your shoes I'd just look for the highest resolution images I can on google (or take some better photos of the ones you have), blow them up in photoshop, apply some filters to make them look roughly like they were painted at that resolution then get them printed somewhere decent.

What's the budget for the project? The lads in Dafen Village will paint you a reproduction in oils for about £50.

I think the Mona Lisa is over hyped. Don't get me wrong it is fine, but a portrait of a woman with unnaturally smooth skin and body shape and flat hair has always seemed unremarkable to me outside of historical context, even compared to painters of a relatively similar period.

I'd much rather comission a copy of Vigo the Carpathian myself.

/beat/8707 Cover songs
The Pet Shop Boys' Always On My Mind has been voted the top cover version of all time in a BBC Music vote.

The song, written by John Christopher, Mark James and Wayne Carson, was first made famous by Brenda Lee and Elvis Presley in 1972.

Johnny Cash's cover of Nine Inch Nails' Hurt came in second place, followed by The Stranglers' version of Dionne Warwick's Walk On By. Jimi Hendrix's take on Bob Dylan's All Along The Watchtower came fourth. Jeff Buckley's cover of Leonard Cohen's classic Hallelujah completed the top five.

Not keen on that version of Walk On By but I like the rest. I reckon I'd have to have a good think about my favourite covers and I'm sure I'd still forget some.

Honestly, that sounds like a pretty metal way of having your ashes scattered. I'm surprised that there isn't a formal programme in the United States for this that cuts out the middle man.

I'll say right now that if the Royal Navy fancies testing Trident then they can strap my dead body to missile. Use the 6k to sail out a few loved ones to watch the fireworks.
