    When I can pull the camera that took that out of my arse pocket, make a call, buy something off ebay, read my email and then take the picture with it, I too will be impressed.

    My £219.99 camera has a small, low-quality sensor that is exactly the same as the ones fitted in most smartphones. But you're right - I have the optical zoom that they don't.
    Below are two pictures taken yesterday from Seaton Carew beach, looking across to the Headland in Hartlepool.
    You might just be able to make out the tallest part of St Hilda's church in the centre of this widest possible angle shot. 
     

     
     
    I accept that photo would probably be as good - or possibly even better - if it were taken on a smartphone.
     
    But what if you can't see the church...? OK, I'll go to full optical zoom...
     
     
     

     
    That church is approximately 1.3 Miles from where I took the photo - and it was taken hand-held.
     
    Do that on your fucking smartphone...

    Yes, the image looks processed but is very good for it.
    those megaliths look pre Younger Dryas to me, wrong thread.

    You have to really watch the shady fuckers too. You could easily look at the Hellmann’s olive oil mayonnaise and assume it is made with olive oil rather than rapeseed oil. Whereas it is actually 64% rapeseed oil and only 5% olive oil.

    Interesting to ponder what kind of crime a regular person of average means would have to be convicted of to land such a large fine.
    Of course this has all been subject to parliamentary scrutiny?

    You are absolutely right.  If you take Battlefield, in order to have fun with it you need to be at least somewhat good at it.  In order to be somewhat good at it you have to play it a lot, to get used to the ins and outs of the maps, the weapons, the weapons attachments... you basically have to put 10+ hours in a week.  If you don't, you'll get absolutely wrecked by regulars, which makes it infuriating.
    In the 2000s and early 2010s, I put 300-600 hours in in each of those games.  Now I rightly feel like I'm wasting time on them.
    Another problem is internet usage.  It's creeping up on me.  Even aimless YouTube browsing seems to space me out, it's not healthy.  I feel agitated if I'm pulled away sometimes, even though I had no idea what I was even looking for.  I sort of envy people from the '80s.

    Tbh I wouldn't classify that as gaming.
    By that I refer to those six to eight hour sessions that go into the small hours, headphones on, all immersive and losing yourself in a digital world.
    It sounds great tbh, but so does cocaine and I won't do that either.

    I'd draw a parallel between porn and videogames too - they are both simulations that provide easy ways (or rather via a path of least resistance) to trick your brain into getting a need met.
    Rub one out when you're horny and kill the desire to begin figuring out how to meet a woman (even though that may admittedly take months or years of work for some people to the point of it seeming an insurmountable challenge).
    Play videogames all day to fulfill the need to feel a sense of achievement by increasing your 'status' in the virtual world - I do play games but I'm very careful only to play for maybe 30 mins a day. The stereotype of a gamer is real, especially when it comes to those who play those role playing board game thingys - I know a bunch of people who do that and they're all morbidly obese messes who put all their effort into pretending to be wizards or some shit. I can't help but think there must be a link between putting all that effort into make-believe stuff and a complete inability to start to address your own health in the real world.

    My observation of cannabis (from uni in the early 2000s) was 90% of people smoked (whatever was available) with zero long term side effects.  About 10% became obsessed (and probably a bit fecked up on it).
    My take is that, like anything,  too much weed is bad,  like too much drinking is bad, like too much porn is bad (if you are watching it more than 20-30mins a day).
    I don’t think/agree that it means that porn/drink/weed etc are intrinsically bad,  just that excess of ANYTHING is bad. But that should be monitored on a personal not broad level.

    Politics at the moment seems to be a two horse race with both teams trying to become absolutely unelectable.
