  • As an addendum to #18, you can us the * wildcard to search for all variations of a root word. So: postmodern* searches for postmodernism, postmodernist etc.
  • Some regular-only sections of the forum would definitely be a good idea. The traditional core of the forum has always been discussion of drugs, pyro and illegal activities; without these I don't really see a coherent purpose. If the new content has to be strictly legal it puts us in direct competition with sites like…
  • 5. Prohibited Uses. You shall not, and shall not authorize or encourage any third party to: ... (v) display any Ad(s), Link(s), or Referral Button(s) on any Web page or any Web site that contains any pornographic, hate-related, violent, or illegal content; That seems awfully restrictive. What are we going to talk about?
  • This is vitally important, along with a revised mission statement. It's going to have to be spelled out very plainly what is allowed and what isn't re: the legal shit. The absolute "no torrent" rule seems excessive to me. I understand that gratuitious links to films and music are an unnecesary legal hasle, but things like…
  • Have you slept yet? As it's 8am and I haven't been to bed yet I think I might go for another day and night awake. I've always wanted to try the Ganzfield experiment whilst sleep deprived to see if the two hallucinogenic states compound each other - I think I'll give it a go tomorrow.
  • Was ytter_man the guy who posted pics of the ridiculously large/detailed train set he constructed in his garage? I remember the name but I didn't know he'd popped his clogs. That's fucking sad :sad: E: Fuck, I've just seen the obituary posted on zoklet for ytter_man, looks like the lad went out in some sort of style. It…
  • Building the Gymnastic Body is something you might want to look into. Parts of it involve basic equipment like rings and horse, but there's also stuff that can be done anywhere without equipment like planche pushup, L-sit and handstand progressions that are better for building strength than any other bodyweight excercises.…
  • ThatfiredKid's probably given the best option. But I'd like to add "strongly worded letter" and "chemical castration" into the mix. Also, are you wanting to help the Asian doll as well, or just your girlfirend?
  • There was a massive surge in shopping centre and highstreet footfall on the day of the 'strikes' as millions who had the day of work to protest that they're supposedly being pushed towards the breadline by government cuts went shopping instead. Says it all really.
  • Anything you particularly enjoy or you'd recommend? I have the albums Lie: The Love and Terror Cult (which I actually enjoyed listening to) and Live at San Quentin (which was... different; more rambling than music).
  • I was going to post a bitchy reply about all the good bands that exist nowadays, but I cant come up with a recent song off the top of my head that rivals House of the Rising Sun as mentioned in post #1 or a band that rivals Led Zepp as mentioned in post #14, so I suppose I'll have to begrudgingly accept the original…
  • ^That's the best news I've had since I threw up my breakfast!
  • I have this song as my alarm tone on my phone: I've woken up to it everyday for the last 4 years; it's one of my little pleasures in life to lie in bed and listen to the lyrics every morning. Charles Manson is one crazy motherfucker, but from somewhere amonsgt the madness came a…
  • Acetone wash. I have no experience with this. If you try it and find any tips to improve it maybe you could write it up for us here?
  • I can't say I have the same problem, but if ever I'm working on a longer post I find it helps to write it out in notepad first. Write all your one liners down in as incoherent a fashion as you like, save it and go and do something else for a while. Come back later with a fresh head and rearrange it into something more…
  • I know nothing of your situation other than what you've posted. From that alone, I would say don't fucking do it you clown! Being turned off by the idea of the 9-5/suburban house/wife/kids lifestyle is not a reason to kill yourself; it's a liberation. Being pissed off with the country you live in and most of the people in…
  • Daktologist's Quick and Dirty CWE is a nice concise guide.
  • According to users of SongMeanings 100% of songs ever written are about suicide/death/breakups/drug addiction. I always thought this song was about someone losing their faith and becoming an athiest. The second half of the song particularly. As to what caused them to lose faith? I don't know. Could be one of the…
  • They sell for £30ish on ebay, but I'm pretty sure most of them are fake.
  • I had the tesseract gif from wikipedia open besides the maze and it still completely fried my brain.
  • As an addendum to #18, you can us the * wildcard to search for all variations of a root word. So: postmodern* searches for postmodernism, postmodernist etc.
  • Reminds me of that "Muslamic Infidels" bloke who gained some internet notoriety not too long ago. This kind of thing is funny until you remember that in a one-person-one-vote democracy this person's opinion is valued just the same as yours or mine.
  • I'm guessing the commonwealth would be the big yellow rectangle in post #19. With lots of other non-interlocking circles for other commonwealth countries inside it.
  • I always thought that the 'UK' was short for the United Kingdom of Great Britain of Northern Ireland. Meaning that Great Britain is the big island covering England, Scotland and Wales, whereas the UK includes NI, Isle of Man, Shetlands, Orkneys, Scilly Isles, Channel Islands etc.
  • I have sore lungs from singing along to this all day:
  • You have excellent taste. He was playing a solo gig in my neck of the woods a month or so ago, but I only found out after the date had passed. 9-5 Pollution Blues is probably my favourite.
  • One man's "mature" is another man's "dead inside". I'm pretty sure that the only reason we (blokes) fight our instincts and hang around to raise a kid is that it becomes socially acceptable to act like a kid again. You can play football in the park, tinkle with lego, run around playing tig etc. and as long as you're doing…
  • Nice pics. How did the red LED torch go? Was it bright enough to be useful?
  • Thanks for those links. I'm having a trawl through the Keyser section of the Tallhoffer manual now - there are some amazing illustrations in it.
  • LavaRed. You're right, this thread would be more pertinent with his presence. I believe he still posts on cocklet.
  • Glad I could help! Do you know of anywhere I find detailed illustrations of defensive architecture from this period? That's what I was searching for when I came across that version of De arte athletica. I'm reading Tristram Shandy at the moment; it keeps mentioning ravelins, curtins, bastions, half-moons, epaulments,…
  • Weight lifting whilst sleep deprived? Sounds... brave. Keep a pen and paper handy so you can describe the hallucinations to us if you make it that far.
  • It's not really a subject I know much (/anything) about, but I found this whilst looking for something else. It piqued my interest and I went on to find two wiki based encyclopaedia portals, it's a list of articles but most have either a link to pdfs or plates in the references: wiktenauer scrimipedia (in Italian) The sort…
  • Shit. Good point.
  • Re: Step 5 It might be a better idea to change the telephone number on the the for sale sign by one digit using a tin of paint or a permanent marker. The seller may notice that their sign has disappeared if you take it down completely. Instead replace the tel no. and no interested buyers will be able to reach the estate…
  • I guess I can hear those. Especially Zepplin. I've only really listened to their first album, and from that they're definately a one sound band. But if that sound is balls-out awesome, then I can live with that.
  • Hmm. Maybe considering the rest of the thread it does like a bit of a non sequitur, but my post was a reply to the first post. Exploring at alone night, feeling the fear and adrenaline, gaining some sense of persepective and feeling the fears and worries that had been building up just melt away. I can relate.
  • Tune.
  • I know exactly what you mean. Here is a picture cunningly photoshopped to make it look like I am inside the roof space of a Northern Cathedral at 4am: Regardless of your own views on religion, there's something extra special about grandiose religious sites after hours. A thousand years of history below your feet, coupled…
  • Amen. There's freedom of speech and then there's freedom of information. People will vote with their feet. I know I already have.
  • I want a sandbox where I can release my inner sociopath. More weapons, pedestrian models, building intereiors, insane jumps, better car damage. Better cop AI. Bigger maps. The RPG element in SA was kind of cool but I would prefer it if it didn't decrease with time - oh noez my muscle is decreasing, I must stop my…
  • I discovered a shitty 4 line poem I wrote a year or so ago called "Advice to My Hypothetical Progeny": Life is a journey Anger is a gift Smile when it rains And bend your knees when you lift!
  • I hadn't really thought of any of that, but you're right on the mark. A more time consuming method would be to crouch down and sweep the leaves aside with both hands, kind of like a breast-stroke out of water, and advance slowly doing this. This would increase the time it takes to traverse the leaf hazard and leave you in…
  • The best thing about well made snowman is how long it lasts. I once made a 9ft snow penis with a bunch of other people and it stayed around for days after the rest of the ground snow had melted.
  • A little titbit I may or may not have discovered last night: During Autumn time leaf drop provides an extra "challenge" for rural night oppers. Silent movement around wooded areas at this time of year is seemingly possible. Not something I have a solution to at any rate.
  • ^That "are you sure" mesage is funny. Above the "Instant peronsalisation" button is an option to turn off all apps and games. This automatically disables "Inst pers" and stops you getting bombared by statuses about fucking farmville. Inspite of it's history with privacy I still value facebook as a social tool. The otherday…
  • VLC and Media Player Classic are excellent in terms of usabilty and the range of files played (I've never had to fuck around searching for codecs for either). Both seem to correct out of sync audio files on shittly torrented films that are otherwise infuriating on the standard Windows Media Player.
  • Sorry, wrong thread :mad:
  • I feel that picture represents pretty damn accurately what our day-to-day life is like. But with more of these:
