1.5hrs for me.
I would imagine whinging, complaining, mocking, being a cunt and generally being unpleasant will be my 'thing' for the rest of today.

so what's new?
do something about your ex, call the filth, tell them you have an agreement and ask them to escort you to her door
(, Thu 3 May 2012, 16:33, Reply)
Nothing is new.
I can do nothing. If someone is breaching a court order you have to take them back to court. This costs several grand I don't have and will achieve nothing.

I can't even afford a Batman suit or any climbing gear :((((

I can lend you the climbing gear.
Quinten can lend you the batman suit.

I got cowboy or soldier
no batman, sorry

but i did see a REALLY cool avengers set at the fancy dress shop

i betcha if you called the police they could do something
but from what i gather you were supposed to be seeing your son at her other dad's?

police might be able to help you escort her out to your place, but not in to his place to stay

Nope, they'd tell me they could do nothing.

offer them drugs

(, Thu 3 May 2012, 16:42, Reply)
They're bored with me doing that.
Most nights I hang around outside the station and offer them some 'gear' when they finish their shifts. I tell them it's 'dynamite stuff'.

Your ex is a prick.
The only glimmer of hope is that your daughter will someday realise that.

It's guaranteed to happen eventually.
I feel like blubbing if I am honest.

I've only got half an hour.
I'm going to spin a pen round my fingers and maybe have a fag.

I'm also thinking that it's annoying you can't give money to "cool" research projects like you can give to charity.
Or not that I can find. I'd rather give 5 a month to development of stable fusion power than to stop stray dogs being put down.
(, Thu 3 May 2012, 16:31, Reply)
fusion power is a dead end
i'm sorry, i know the hopes of mankind rest on its shoulders, but it's a purple goose
(, Thu 3 May 2012, 16:34, Reply)
I don't see why, seems to be an enginering problem at the moment, the science is proved.

(, Thu 3 May 2012, 16:35, Reply)
they gave up on laser powered fusion, i'm fairly sure they'll give up on other methods soon too

(, Thu 3 May 2012, 16:36, Reply)
Really? I thought they just did the most powerful laser test last month or so and it was sucessful.
well it made fusion, it wasn't a net gain.

the 2009 experiment must have been around the time I heard about it
i think i read the wikipedia page on it and they said funding had been cancelled, wikipedia lied ot me again
(, Thu 3 May 2012, 16:57, Reply)
That's actually a great idea (the donation part, not necessarily the fusion part).
I'm surprised no one's facilitated that. Maybe you should?
(, Thu 3 May 2012, 16:35, Reply)
Sort of kickstarter for science?

(, Thu 3 May 2012, 16:36, Reply)
I agree.

(, Thu 3 May 2012, 16:37, Reply)
Would require charitable status
not worth doing if you're only going to get a tenner a month. And you wouldn't know which project would be considered "cool"
(, Thu 3 May 2012, 16:49, Reply)
How about the charity holds the money and gift aid,
uses interest to process payments quality control running costs etc
then does a big donations once every quarter or something to the research projects required.

Would be pointless unless a lot of people use it though, obviously.
(, Thu 3 May 2012, 16:52, Reply)
That is basically how* the Wellcome Trust, Cancer research, etc work already.
I actually think it's quite a good idea, just probably unmanageable under current charity regs.

*not in practice, obviously, but in concept.
(, Thu 3 May 2012, 16:55, Reply)
It does seem a bit annoying because I'm getting a little extra a month
because of the tax changes and wouldn't mind putting that towards something but most charities leave me cold.
Strange that the model has only been used for health based research before.
(, Thu 3 May 2012, 16:59, Reply)
It hasn't
Gates foundation, Quatar foundation etc all support other research. I think. We're playing around with them over some of our blood stuff but fuck you have to jump through some hoops.

kickstarter.com? might be kickstart.com

Nah they're for individual projects rather than research

That's just for moneygrabbers with daft business ideas.

Did you lay into your beers last night?
I got absolutely trounced but woke up feeling completely fine. I wonder if it's because I'm generally looking after myself a little better these days.
(, Thu 3 May 2012, 16:32, Reply)
I had a beer with a bit of lime in it, which improved it massivly as it's still young.
I think I'll do that until it matures enough to be tasty.

I'm going to deploy some software to a HTC phone for testing

Great expectations is a good pub, just behind the cinema near the Oracle.
Pool tables decent food, cheapish beers.

I haven't been there for about 7 years

Any town that schedules local trains out at the end of the night to stop at alternate small towns to minimise violence is not a town that is fun to drink in.
