    The Generation Game reacted to Hopeful in Climate Change   
    I haven't checked your maths but you've ended up at a figure ~110k too high. I think you need to reduce the radiation received to 342Wm^-2 and then reduce that by 30% to allow for earth's albedo to arrive at 237Wm^-2, which after the maths = 255K or -18C. The GHGs warm earth to 15C

    State sanctioned knife fights instead then. Coming to a caliphate near you in the next decade. If you can't get a promoter, the streets can be your ring.

    The good thing is if only 10% find you attractive you can shag 60 thousand women on the bigger sites.A guy im working with has become single after 27 years.He has no idea at all.His ex screwing around all over,moved on,bags of tax credits etc.Hes got a flat and lost.I got him onto a couple of dating sites.He said he was getting no joy after a few weeks.He gave me his log in.Profile was the usual like bar meals,walks on the beach rubbish.I changed it all.I put on "Cleaner required (ironing added bonus) apply within"
    Profile says,yeah i like all those normal things everyone puts,who doesnt like a bar meal? a walk on a beach?.However i also like a nice arse,a few drinks,putting the world to rights and above all i wont show you up in front of your family and friends, a result in itself right?.In exchange for that you can do my ironing,cleaning and see to other needs.Be quick as im expecting a rush.
    In box pinging like mad.Usually people saying how sexist,how shocking to put they want a cleaner etc and of course the bingo "what are the other needs",perfect as once your talking you just reel them in.Im getting him close to dates with a lot of them now and he is starting to come out of his melancholy.

    This thread has raised lots of thoughts for me.
     
    1) It’s a lovely advert, that kid is adorable, and it should simply be enjoyed for what it is. People don’t seem happy now unless they’re pulling something to bits. 
     
    2) There’s a hardware store like that in Aberkenfig called Bakers. https://www.bakersdiy.co.uk/
    3)  I too love going to Morrisons, especially at Christmas, with our nearest one being in Port Talbot, which is about 16 miles away.
    4) I like a trip out, like @Frank Hovis suggests. We recently had a day out to Cadbury Garden Centre. It’s just a road trip with the promise of different nik-naks and afternoon tea.
    5) This has to, possibly, be my most boring post to date. I’m feeling rather warm and fuzzy today which may be down to the fact that I’ve not put so much pressure on myself in preparing for Christmas. There does seem to be a different, less consumer driven, feeling to it this year. I’m just looking forward to some time at home with my family and anyone else who wishes to call.

    That is key. It works out cheaper or more convenient than traveling
    The thing is, once people have put their ££s in their car's tank they don't seem to see that as a cost of the purchase. I know people will drive 10 miles to a Morrison's for 4 pints of milk just because it's £1 cheaper than the local shop they could walk to.
    I will never ask for a discount in a local shop, but I'll expect one in a big boy's shop (non food). I'd also never go to an independent for advice and then buy online. However, I will go to a big boy's shop with my phone and compare their prices with those online.

    But the finest range IS more expensive. You pay more than the basic range
    They may charge a premium on top for 'finest' but the process of adding water is a handling charge, it requires investment in a machine to inject the water for a start, the injection process takes time, it all adds cost.
    The meat 'tastes', well seems to 'taste' better simply because it stays more juicy when overcooked. Just learn to cook
    Basics is the same basic meat but better as it doesn't contain water and you're not being fleeced on price..
    With pork the problem is that people won't eat it pink. That is a hangover from the days (not so long ago) when you could get nasty parasitic infections from undercooked pork meat. Today, effective worming means that UK pork is parasite free so you can safely eat it pink. I wouldn't trust EU pork.
    Anyway, for whatever reason Tesco's and others add the water, finest ranges contain more than basics.

    Supermarket branded 'lemsip' VS actual lemsip.
    Look at the ingredients on the back. They are exactly - and I mean exactly - the same. The only difference is that the unbranded ones are about a quid and the lemsips are a fiver.
    Additional bonus super info - Add a lemsip to a whiskey filled hot toddy. It's like a nuclear bomb for a cold and you slip into quite a satisfying coma too. 
    Just don't think too much about your liver...

    “Billionaire Mr Musk told the court this week the phrase "pedo guy" was common in South Africa, where he grew up.“
    So hurty words no longer hurt?
    The words that were commonly used where I grew up would get you locked up these days.

    How the fuck did he get away with calling the guy a pedo in a Tweet and then compounding it with confirmatory further insults,  saying "I bet it's true?" and being caught employing someone to unsuccessfully dig up dirt on him. 
    One might almost think there's one law for the rich and another for the poor. 
    Seriously, I'm slightly shocked, as although everybody knows the rich have access to different justice it's not normally quite so blatant as this. Just another sign that the rich no longer fear the poor as they did in the 20th century and are moving towards being above the law.

    Tdog is right in that the boomer generation is the most entitled in the history of man, excepting the french aristos just before the revolution.
    I've got sibilings and friends who are now approaching 60, and to a man/woman all their success is because they are brilliant, and all their kids failures is because they are not as hardworking as they were.
    bollocks.  the generation born 1950-1965 has the pinnacle of western civilisation handed to them, took every freebie they could, and then fucked it up by tearing down the institutions that had enabled civilisation.  Then, they repeatedly supported open borders and mental identity politics.
    the boomer generation have basically destroyed western civilisation in Europe and the USA, by thinking that fighting back against 'the man' is cool even when you become 'the man'
    cunts.

    The point you start the video is the usual quoted trope
     

     
    ALWAYS is a fallacy, it's predictable and laughable to see time and time again by those who want to argue against mmgw
    Solar input is considered the driver of the ice ages over the last 800k years, CO2 is a feedback mechanism, it lags a change in temperature. No climate scientist or global warming advocate would deny that fact. It's a given and doesn't need saying.
    Carbon dioxide drives temperature up and down through +ve and -ve feedback. Additions of carbon dioxide by changes in biology or volcanic inputs, or now MMGW (which is the same as increasing volcanism) or its removal by biology or rock weathering, affect global temperature.
    But to say carbon dioxide ALWAYS precedes temperature is a fallacy. It is an argument put up to be shot down, to be able to say "Hah, see, Carbon dioxide lags temperature, it's irrelevant".

    The chart actually shows that women rate 80% of men as unattractive (if below average=unattractive). Let that sink in!
    So most of the women are aiming at the top 20% of men.
    "Conversely, male market participants face a virtually unchanged opportunity set, if not an increasing number of opportunities."
    .....unchanged meaning no opportunity at all unless you are top 20% ??

    Online dating makes it to the FT! There's an article on FT alphaville about online dating and how it changes the dating marketplace. Very red pill. Quotes include:
    "This means that as female market participants move from ages 20 to 35 their available inventory may shrink to a sliver of the original pool. Conversely, male market participants face a virtually unchanged opportunity set, if not an increasing number of opportunities."
    "The shifts in market opportunities and costs has had the effect of lowering the market value of the median male while also incentivising a female to hold out for better candidates. Unsurprisingly, this has led to prime reproductive age individuals having less sex, as men are being disproportionately priced out of the market. We believe this is a material driver of the “incel” (involuntary celibate) social movement/problem."
    ...and a chart showing how women rate more than 50% of men as very unattractive on online dating sites.
    A link won't work, but the article is called "Thank u, next: how dating apps are transforming relationships". Google that and click news...

    My first ex husband, me, his friend and girlfriend were arrested for something we didn’t do. We all went through hell for months. The blokes were detained and charged but myself and mates girlfriend were released.
    We were all on a night out drinking. Ex husband’s mate was a doorman sometimes at the place we ended up at that night. All of us had a lot to drink and we left the place we were at quite late to go to our place to party on. Our place was not far away at all but before we’d turned the corner of the pub place there was a mob around us. Their problem was that they had a grievance against the sometimes doorman because they were banned and he was getting the blame. There were a few scuffles as we kept walking towards our place then one of the mob charged at my ex’s mate who ducked out the way. Bloke fell and never got up. His mates circled round him and we all said let’s run and get to our place now. Had more booze, chat about the fracas and our mates went home.
    Next day was a Sunday and around midday police turned up and arrested us. It turned out that all the mates of the bloke who charged and fell had left him unconscious on the street. Hit his head causing a very serious injury that incapacitated him for life. Done it to himself. During police investigation after he was found his mates said that us four had repeatedly kicked his head in. None of us knew what a dire state he was in when he fell and never gave it a thought really until the nightmare began!
    After three days the case was dropped due to obviously inconsistent prosecution witnesses. None of us had to give evidence. What a fucking nightmare! That was in the early 80’s. I’ve thought since then that there are probably constantly many people in jail after being convicted for something they didn’t do because of prosecution witnesses who are accomplished liars.

    I think that probably is the case in planned spit-roasts, but in this case it was a spontaneous thing, maybe they thought saying 'I'll go first while you wait outside' might kill the mood.
    Just when you think you know all there is to know about perversion something new pops up, as it were. I was looking at some of the pics of an attractive 'older lady' who I noticed on one of the threads here.
    I did an image search and found a fully clothed one, not at all dodgy. But it was part of some forum where men phone each other up and describe to each other what they are doing to said celebrity during an imaginary spit-roast!  What the...?? Is this even 'a thing'?

    Bit of a thread crosser. I was reading about "Bald and Bankrupt" on Youtube, seems to have had a colourful life pre-Youtube with being a so-called PUA (crime of crimes). Was accused of rape, but found not guilty, and wrote this, which I thought was quite insightful.
