    Snowfall

    Anyone watched it? It's fucking boss. Only caught onto it after there was some brouhaha on Twitter with someone saying it was better than the Wire. It's a totally different animal, like a mix between Menace to Society, Narcos and American Made. Tells the story of the start of the 80s crack epidemic which the CIA were behind due to Raegan's shadow war on the central American commies which needed funding off the books, despite all of Nancy's just say no bollocks. I'm steaming through it, already half way through season two. It's on iplayer and well worth a watch.

    The Space Thread

    Love this stuff. For anyone who's interested... relief map of Mars showing Olympus Mons volcano (top left) which is 16 miles high and 374 miles across. The lowest (blue) areas are also where some scientists believe oceans once existed, note the 'inlets' and apparent coastlines. Any more?

    "football should be a level playing field....say Chelsea fans." This shit gets more amazing by the day. Mind boggling stuff.

    Kept men

    Anybody know one or lucky enough to be one? It's fascinating. I know one guy, retired now, he was extremely low paid but had a pretty cool job (photographer), but his Mrs was minted as she was really high up in the legal profession. They used to have Harleys and all sorts but she'd paid for it all. He always had expensive watches. What was interesting though is that he was probably the biggest snob I've ever met, she wasn't, but he was. Like if your watch strap didn't cost four grand he'd have this smirk on his face, yet she'd bought it for him. He'd buy her expensive bespoke jewellery but it was out of the joint account, which didn't make sense to me. Yet he'd be horrified if he found out you'd bought your Mrs something from a high street jeweller - even though it was with your own cash. Me and the Mrs watch this programme called Rich House Poor House. Basically a low paid family and wealthy family swap houses for a week. Interestingly, the rich blokes (it's usually the bloke) always seem dead down to earth, like they'll buzz off the fact the poor family's dad is doing two jobs or working nights or whatever to support his family. There's only ever been one absolute gobshite rich dad on the show that I've seen and he's a kept man. She makes the money (diet plans or something shit) and he's like "we only shop at Waitrose", and takes the piss out of shop staff, making out that they're thick, even though he's a kept bum. My mate and his Mrs have been teaching abroad for about 18 years, he rarely if ever manages to hold down his job (don't think he's very good at it) and he's essentially just been a house husband. Doesn't bother him, he's not turned into an arse (as they're not rich) but reckons all the other wives' fellas give him grief for it when they're pissed.
  11. Started this thread when I was 28 and wasn't even old, now I'm 41 and am old. Back then I loved women and vodka and boats. And I loved women who drank vodka on boats. Now I have to get up twice a night to take a piss.

    The way I see it capitalism has moved more money from the masses' pockets into the few, the fallout is that you can't run a consumer economy when the consumer has no money, but they're too shortsighted to care. To counter this, instead of giving us our money back they lent it to us instead, debt replaced wages and we ended up with the credit crunch. They even managed to monetize the fallout of that with a "poverty" industry emerging, mass house repossessions and sell offs, and austerity - which was basically transferring private debt onto the public, while simultaneously privatising or selling off public assets. Now with the rise of the gig economy and the collapse of organised Labour, they've doubled down on having no money in consumer pockets. The only recourse left? Turn the taxpayer into your customers. There's loads of them and they've got no choice whether to buy from you or not. Sort of have to admire it, in a Bond villain kind of way.

    Smells would be an issue too, shower and lights off. All things being equal I'd reckon about thirteen hundred quid.

    Have to agree with SD here, it's not neoliberalism I don't think, it's some kind of weird state/private/cronyism like basically what you'd get in Russia or Uganda. Dunno what the political science tern is. Corruption maybe. But it's basically public money into a very select group of private pockets with access to that group closely controlled. Neoliberalism is about dismantling the state or pushing it to one side, this new model needs the state because it's a cash cow.

    I honestly don't think the red wall is lost to the Tories, just to Johnson. A lot will depend on who their next leader is and what route they go down. Same goes for the states, I don't see how you can build a long term political movement solely on the undirected anger of the white working class.

    Cancel Culture

    I'm just so tired of these people, what exhausts me the most is that it's not even genuine, it's actually a 'job', in modern Britain and the USA, saying inflamatory shit is actually a career option when your career hits the skids, something that gets you called on radio shows and Questiontime and lets you sell mugs and keyrings. If that's not fall of Rome shit, I really don't know what is. "All fat people should be gassed" "OMG can't believe he/she said that" "Hi it's Pandora fuckbucket here from Newsnight, would you come on our show for three grand?" "yes please."

    Being called a bin dipper by a club from Moss Side was a new high on the irony-meter. I think Occam's Razor is pointing towards the fact mancs are cunts, regardless of hue.

    Boris Johnson

    With my head still spinning from the fact someone had been jailed for three months for posting nasty comments on Facebook and no news organisations seemed arsed, I turned on the telly to see that at some point over the last few months - without me realising it - Boris Johnson has turned into the English JFK. Yesterday I heard him described as 'blue Viagra', 'a future Prime Minister' and 'a political rock star'. Heard how journalists love him because he 'remembers their names', 'tells jokes' and 'is a character'. It seems obvious they're maneuvering to get him to replace Cameron for the simple reason that he'd make good news stories owing to the fact he's an utter, utter buffoon. I just couldn't handle the shit yesterday. I felt like I'd climbed out of a car wreck and then been hit by a bus. What's going on in this country, seriously? A year from now Mitt Romney and Boris Johnson could be leaders of the western world, the dole might not exist, and people will be getting sent down for making inappropriate jokes about those facts on Twitter.

    Had the Oxford one yesterday but fine so far. I wanted the Moderna one really, I had Ellesse when everyone else had Kickers, it's how I roll.

    Souness would have far more right to rant about greed in football than Neville does. Sounsss's generation are all part owners of carpet shops and shit because they hardly made a penny despite winning everything in site and getting brain damage from heading balls. Neville owns hotels and a football club, was getting paid about 30k a week at the age of 18. I mean fucking hell.

    Loathe to disagree with the lone star twat but I'll be honest I don't think generalised anxiety disorded is a good quality in a spy.

    Dunno about the Corbyn brexiteer appeal, I see Corbyn, Brexit and Johnson as all having fundamentally the same appeal, that they're outsiders and something the establishment is perceived to be against. Problem for Corbyn is that the world moved so fast he was very quickly no longer a novelty. If you had Starmer vs May now you'd have something resembling old fashioned traditional politics, Johnson is still perceived as the loose cannon, a wrecking ball just like brext was, and it's for that reason he appeals to people who are angry, even if they don't always know why.
