No longer homeless, woo, should have internet in the next week.

Now onto arguments about decorating, herself wants to go with a contemporary style while I want literally everything in the house to be a mix of Vantablack and International Klein blue.

You wouldn't believe how many searches this thread is getting, either there was piece on the tv or someone has developed a working prototype forcefield.

An article about this on r/TIL made the Reddit front page last week. My guess is it would be part of that bump?

That would do it alright.

If she admitted entry then they likely let her go on the spot on the offer that they wont prosecute if she leaves.  If she had denied it they would be in a difficult to get rid of her, but I've never seen suspensions for theft because it becomes impossible to build up trust in that person again.

She could always have had a breakdown during her shift and walked out.

Either way, hopefully thats the last of people fucking with your shit. I don't know how you remained so patient.

There are a lot of people who want you back, and a lot who you drove to distraction, It will be with them, the decision is made... No one wants a return to the lost two year argument on drugs, especially not now on the advent of the death of social media and return of long form discussion.

An addict often can't help but feed their habit, we can't be seen to be enabling your drug-topic need, as such your first step towards recovery:


If you post in a drug thread or about drugs in another thread, you will be banned again immediately

Post-neoism is better  :lol:

I disagree. The second and third  ones weren't great, that said the animatrix wasn't bad.

It would at least put a concrete figure on [MONEY IN] from the EU and [MONEY OUT] and show if there is a net gain or loss from subsidies. That wouldn't even be a hard one to put together.

According to a senior civil servant who has seen over half of the sector analyses, the government decided not to bother with doing impact assessments because it would be too much work.

Is that because the sector analyses are so rough that it was safe to assume what the impact assessments would say, or was it that no sector analysis was done at all?

If people push hard enough, campaign to find out where those recommendations and figures came from, what the Tories have been basing all this on, a freedom of information request will eventually lead to the Tory chamber of secrets, held pristine under a glass dome, is a pawed photo of a bus that says they will get 350 million on the side of it.

That was a chilling revelation.
Does it indicate willful arrogance, or that they know doing those impact studies will all return "Nothing good can come of this"

Today was the day that the initial set of negotiations would have been agreed upon, of which one of the big sticking issues is the border in Northern Ireland.

Theresa May, who's Tory government is propped up by the DUP who are time traveling Northern Ireland racists from the 1800 made a proposal to keep NI in the customs union (IE allow free trade and movement from the EU), avoiding any kind of border in NI, which in looked really good for the republic, and for the North. This looked like a done deal, May, the EU president and our own Taoiseach were set to make a big announcement that talks were moving forward.

On the speculation of this alone, Scotland insisted that should NI have special status there is no reason why any other part of the UK couldn't have the same arrangement and wanted it for them (this would result in either a border between Scotland and England, or the UK being completely unable to control migration which is what a lot of this whole Brexit shite was about. OK fine it Results in Hadrians wall  being rebuilt for the first time since the Romans but whatever.

Then London City chimed in saying they would also want the same deal as 90% of their trade is finance and international commerce. This would require London becoming a walled city or again completely invalidate the control of migration.

Not to mention the fact that May's own party were horrified at the prospect of parts of the UK's trade and travel still being dictated by Europe, and are now after her head.

But either way it didn't matter, because in making the deal either Theresa May didn't tell her partners in government the DUP what she had proposed or they got cold feet in the last five minutes and pulled the plug.

So no deal was reached, literally everyone was unhappy and it will be very unlikely May's government will last another week, if the DUP don't pull the plug, her own party might without her.
There is until the 14th to get a deal agreed upon, the likely outcome of failing to do so is the UK ends up on WTO rules, and Northern Ireland goes back to the bad old days of British soldiers shooting children and drunken mongoloid IRA "Freedom fighters" blowing up innocents.

The worst is, it came tantalizingly close to being OK. Let's see how the next week plays out maybe there is still some hope in this.
