Thank fuck, I've already eaten one of them

There's also the question of what Ireland would want to ban in return, if we were stupid enough to do this, and do we really want to go down the route of tit-for-tat trading disputes with our closest trading partners?

Um... hasn't that particular horse already left the station?  :lulz:

Immigrants bad! EU Complex! Many people not white! Things today different than 1950 and I'm scared!

That's probably giving the leave argument more nuance than they've bothered with.

Lets not forget the shape of bananas. Honestly, with an electorate this fucking retarded the only thing stopping the left from straight up taking control of their brains and working them with joypads is some irrelevant and self defeating sense of morality. They'll end up getting eaten by the shambling abominations they're insisting on treating like human beings.

I have 101 plans for the future at any given time. Right now 99.9% involve me watching the whole thing and laughing my tits off, with an icepick closeby just in case some poor deluded fuckhead mistakes me for a member of the other side.

U.K. lawmakers have warned that plans to exit the European Union pose a major threat to the country's power supplies and nuclear industry.
"The continued operations of the U.K. nuclear industry are at risk," said Iain Wright, head of a cross-party committee that published its findings on Tuesday. "Ministers must act as urgently as possible."
The committee warned that nuclear power plants -- which generate 20% of the country's electricity -- could be forced to be shut down if Britain leaves the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom). Consumers could also face much higher energy costs.

Quote
Prime Minister Theresa May insists that Britain will drop its membership in Euratom because of Brexit. The regulator is an EU institution, and it is subject to the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) -- an arrangement that May will not tolerate.
The prime minister's position puts the nuclear industry in a very tough spot: Two years is not enough time to build up a new regulatory body from scratch. And without oversight, critical functions including the transportation of nuclear material and fuel would stop.

It's not the first time I've mentioned potential problems with the power grid here. Fuckups increasingly look like a certainty as there are more than a few ongoing nuclear issues, particularly around transport in the UK.

For example, containers of nuclear materials are tested to be able to withstand drops of around 6M. Trains carrying materials pass through a number of bridges well in excess of 20M. No-one has bothered about fixing this slight problem in 20 years or so and I can't see anyone rushing to fix it anytime soon.

Coming soon, your very own Chernobyl. Sure to attract tourists from miles around. And citizens won't need to worry about keeping the lights on because they'll all glow in the fucking dark.

I feel like the potential for this situation should've been a MAJOR talking point during the debates leading up to the Brexit vote...

Was it not?  :lulz:

Nope. Must. Secure. Borders.

Haha! Figured out the sketchfab thing. Only a small amount of pretty straightforward fucking about involved.

and another...

What we're dealing with here is ego. On a national scale. Britain, as a nation, seems to think it's something other than the shrivelled up husk of a failed empire with very little to offer an would be partner other than some tax breaks. Actually, since Brexit the tax breaks are mostly off the menu and we'll no doubt see them morph over time into the kind of third world exploitation befitting our financial and political standing.

By 2025 China may well be building residential sweat shops over here but that's only if 3d printing doesn't eat distributed manufacturing in the meantime. If it does then we'll be a footnote in some xmas appeal for the starving xenophobic children.

The vast majority of the population have been convinced that Corbyn is literally Satan. So it just becomes a crappy PR exercise convincing the faithful that May is actually the reincarnation of thatcher come to save us all from the horrors of Europe.


Corbyn has that spineless schoolteacher affectation so popular amongst left wingers, spouting condescending "reasonableness" all over the place which is exactly the kind of thing that makes him so easy for the right to hate. The right know how things work in the "real world" and sometimes you just have to don a black shirt and gas a few eggs. The irony is that the "real world" is only like that cos the right wing make it like that with their knuckle dragging retarded shit making a mess all over the place.

I aint throwing my towel in with the left, tho. They sound good on paper but in practice they're just too easy to hate. They wear fucking woolen tanktops without a hint of irony and their ideas are all based on some pie in the sky bullshit that requires all the primates to act like rational conscious entities at all times. Shit, if your masterplan only requires a tiny minority to act like rational conscious entities even for a split second I'm going to call you a fucking idiot destined for failsville.

And then there's the total fuckhead fringe movements. Greens, Libdems, Pirate Party...

These are the choices I'm presented with and then told my vote is important. Au contraire democracy fanboy, I'm pretty sure I get to watch this shithole country burn to the ground regardless of how or even if I choose to vote.

Soz mate I didn't get around to the sketchfab thing. Been working on Elvira for a couple of days now. I've always been a tit-man but, after trying to sculpt the bastard things a couple of times now I've gone right off them. Asses or GTFO  :argh!:


Couple of WIP stages.



Here's a realtime cap of my third or fourth session. My workflow is all over the place cos still learning and shit. Nose is too short and a whole lot of shit still needing filled in and fixed. This might get finished...

Thanks, dude! These things can be posted to sketchfab but there's a bit of fucking around involved that I haven't looked into yet. Might have a try later on and see how it goes.

And, yeah - VR is clunky and 1st gen but already it's shaping up to be more than I imagined it could be. And I can imagine quite a bit ;)

Scientists are cool. Engineers are cool. People are dumbasses.

How are computers so exhausting I just spent 12 hours struggling to get this shitty laptop working, which included the last few hours doing a factory reset and putting Chrome on. I shouldn't be this tired, it's just basically waiting around for shit to happen.

It's the boredom that gets you. Sitting for hours on end watching a busy pointer, knowing the whole time that the second you walk out the room the motherfucker is going to ask you something and halt the install until it gets an answer. It's very draining.

I can't mine is defective. Grain just pisses out through the holes  :sad:

Canada would be an appealing option if not for the fact that the US is right next door. Pretty sure Canada is going to cop more than a bit of fallout when that shit implodes. All my exit strategies involve remote places. Far enough away from population centers to hole up and avoid the flak but close enough to pay the odd scavenging visit.

Best case scenario - the dust settles and some progressive liberal fucks have pwnt the global economy and are handing out UBI to all comers.

Worst case - who fucking cares, it's all over at that point
