The UK's Upcoming Porn Ban Explained - TLDR News by JasonCarswell in Sex

[–]Stankmango 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

The argument about the content being darker on lesser known and uncontrolled sites shouldn't even be the core point. Imagine the beefy amount of malware and phishing scams galore.

Another point that isn't really being addressed is how the UK is cracking down on the online pharmacies big time. At the beginning of April they made Gabapentin and Pregabalin controlled substances. I'm prescribed them and because I'm not on repeat I have to meet with my GP each time. When I know one of us will be away a while I order a pack online. We'll start clocking a rise in withdrawal-related deaths soon enough.

Watch this space but I reckon within the year they'll control codeine. They'll start with dihydrocodeine tartrate and then over time get rid of Phosphate by dosage until the only available medicine is 8/500mg, or even just paracetamol. I don't want to get political in this because I'm having a tanked seal of a time but I pray for a Lib Dem government to completely reform the drug and privacy policies in this anomic shitbrained dystopia.

Prof. Jem Bendell - Deep Adaptation: A Map for Navigating Climate Tragedy by Stankmango in environment

This is the academic paper that ostensibly had a support group for readers that were too frightened by its contents, according to Vice.

Here's Bendell's channel - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=szaUHWlOGhY

I was actually originally going to post this article until I remembered that I never got round to finishing Bendell's piece. Should make for light and go-lucky skimming for most of us anyway.

Sex, Drugs, and Music. You can only Choose to live with Two. Which Option will you Sacrifice? by Stankmango in AskSaidIt

You can ingest any drug and they will still have the same physiological effects. You'll still get a vasoconstricted walnut potdunker and dilated pupils and look like a sweat-sodden alien if you took MDMA but there will be zero change in brain chemistry, so serotoninergic and dopaminergic reuptake inhibitors are virtually inoperable with substances. You'll be like a base human android that can only attain gratification from natural responses, like a weirdo. You can still drink tea but it'll need to be low enough in caffeine so as to constitute a super weak cuppa.

You can still use all of the same platforms but music will be muted wherever there is music. At least you get the small pleasure of bobbing those dogshit wobble crank intros on most tutorial vids.

Use of Controversial Surveillance Techniques by UK Police is Being Challenged in Landmark Court Case by Kangbanger in privacy

The least ineffectual way to respond to the third-rate bromide "If you've got nothing to hide then you've got nothing to fear" is equating digital privacy with freedom of speech by barking back "If you've got nothing to say then you shouldn't care" and that tends to only cement their vapid hokey wall between mottos and discourse.

It's like how every time I'm at a pub for a couple of swift shorts and the inevitable warm pull out Britannicancel tilt sidles up, you get the same fresh 60 somethings dribble a platitude like "This used to be Great Britain. It's not great anymore." with their curdled lip rictus, as if they think that's won the argument.

Getting drunk at home is so much more rewarding now. I get to sit in just my boxers anyhow.

British Govt to Put Forward Brexit Bill in June by Kangbanger in ukpolitics

[–]Stankmango 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I was once a staunch remainer and I am still a Lib Dem supporter which may sow fertile grounds for sneering but as the onerous debacle has sailed on the same wave for so long I just feel like grabbing the closest life ring and just beating it over my nut til I'm pissing blood. The whole shitshow has really worn me down to the point of feeling a genuine appetence for self-immolation.

I'm still on the remain side but that's only because I sense that it's a lesser of two evils. That's all democracy teaches us to reason with anyway. I don't support an avaricious and mammoth institution like the EU but with Britain left to govern with freer rein sounds scary to me, given the authoritarian police state we already have. I know the EU is responsible for enacting a lot of these surveillance edicts and such, but the UK could possibly have unfettered deal makings that will subjugate us to a much higher degree.

Economically, it's ambiguous at best. There's already been plenty of companies letting go thousands of people in the confusion of it all. I think we're better off having our apron strings tightened until we do away with the conservative government. I'm not expecting to be intellectually challenged on anything I'm saying because, like most cats over here, it's a half and half shitblend of intuitive mulling and hangdog apathy. I just hope anything eventually fucking happens before I'm out of commission.

Why is Medicinal Cannabis in the UK so Hard to Access Six Months on From Being Legalised? by Stankmango in Drugs

Exactly. I'm not sure of the current legislation but green in the UK is the only drug that has no defence of necessity. You can actually honk on crack for your headaches and that will be seriously taken into account, but when it comes to the chiliads of MS and arthritic sufferers then their partners or carers get boxed up for supplying. Sickening.
