Quote from: Paedo School Teacher Muppet

How do we, and how should we, define what is right or wrong, acceptable or unacceptable???
Well, it's a good question. Generally we tend to use something called 'The Law'.

The law isn't always right. Clearly it is wrong for an adult to take a young woman away from her family, her support structure and her education. Wrong for an adult to expose a young woman to this much media spotlight that she probably didn't have a full appreciation of how awful it can be. But to blithely believe that society's reaction to what, in less than 12 months, wouldn't even be a legal issue at all is proportionate and correct is ridiculous. I'd suggest that the law, in a situation like this, causes more damage than the relationship in most cases. He's not ran off with her, taken her away from her family, because of the relationship. Ultimately they've run away because of the law.

It seems like the sort of thing that's hard to do deliberate like. Sometimes there's some cartoon or film or book that disses Islam rotten and nobody notices, then sometimes a particularly shit one gets jumped on like it's the next Satanic Verses. It seems more like pot luck than anything you could do on purpose.

That's not to say somebody won't ride the crest of the wave right into Tehran carrying a gun or two.

Didn't it close last year with someone trying to jump from there? Personally I think the SuS bridge is a much nicer place to end it. Hope that person is ok though. Pretty big cry for help I reckon knowing you could cause that much disruption.

The amount of jumpers we get at the Sus bridge is unbelievable. There is a blanket ban on any suicide being reported in the press, but I'd say there is a major police operation to deter jumpers, including police helicopters and the like, probably three times a week. Very horrible.

There's a blanket ban? No wonder there's so many jumpers!

Oh that's what that was. Always sad times when one of us hurts ourselves. All the more when you know he was on the way to work, rather than out having fun. Hope he/she's OK.  LIGHTAH!

Its 16mm melamine faced chipboard. It's a fairly standard material for cheap shelves and cabinets. And (short of a trade discount) £60 a sheet for 2400x2700 is as cheap as you'd find. I had to cut the sheet in half at the warehouse to get it in the van, hence why I've got 2400x1350 on hand.

I think you're picturing the cheap shit they use to board up houses. You should be thinking of this:



MDF is a better material but to get it with a laminate face you'd be looking at a lot more dollar,

I've got 2 big (about 2400mm x 1350mm) pieces of oak-finish melamine faced chipboard and about 20m of oak-finish edging tape left over from a project I was doing. It cost about £60-£70 (not sure exactly) from Avon Plywood (it'd cost twice that from B&Q etc). Its been stored in a shed and the bottom of the boards has taken on some water so it needs around 50-100mm sawn off the longest edge to make it usable. If you can pick it up from Picton Lane (you'll need at least a SWB van) its yours for £30 ONO. Aside from that tiny bit wasted to water damage it's in fine condition (bought brand new 3 weeks ago).

Devils advocate here; if you could face the death penalty, would you steal from primark?

Folk who steal from primark are poor as shit, addicted to some fucked up drugs or both. If you think £3.99 trousers is worth stealing then you've got some fucked up life. The less you've got to lose the less you're going to be deterred, however harsh the sentence. Whatever crack addict ever said "20 year stretch? Fuck that shit, I'm getting me a job down McDonalds and switching to booze".
29  General / The Forum / Re: Is it me or this really ufcked up?!! on: August 25, 2012, 19:25:51
Punishment by restriction is a matter of a degrees. Sticking a motherfucker in a big concrete box is the highest degree of restriction. It also used to be the only effective one. But now with electronic monitoring and whatnot you can restrict someone's movements, associations and actions effectively in the community. That in mind, the line becomes real easy to draw. You use restrictions on freedom as punishment, but you only use the highest degree (i.e. prison) if its justified for public safety. Everyone who isn't dangerous should be out in the community with 21st century techniques used to make sure they do right.

Not that that'd be a political reality in the next 100 years.

There is no sentence of life imprisonment in Norwegian law. There is however an indeterminate penalty that could in principle result in life imprisonment, but there are no examples of such after the latest correctional law passed in 2002. There are basically two types of maximum penalty laws:

The maximum determinate penalty is 21 years imprisonment, but only a small percentage of prisoners serve more than 14 years. Prisoners will typically get unsupervised parole for weekends etc. after serving ⅓ of their sentence (a maximum of 7 years) and can receive early release after serving ⅔ of their sentence (a maximum of 14 years). In 2008, to fulfill its requirements under the Rome Statute, Norway created a new maximal penalty of 30 years for crimes against humanity.[1]

The indeterminate penalty, called "containment" (Norwegian: forvaring), is set at 21 years imprisonment, and the prisoner is required to serve at least 10 years before becoming eligible for parole. If the prisoner is still considered dangerous after serving the original sentence, the prisoner can receive up to five years additional containment. If the additional time is served, and the offender is still considered dangerous, a prisoner can continue to receive up to five years additional containment, and this, in theory, could result in actual life imprisonment. "Containment" is used when the prisoner is deemed a danger to society and there is a great chance of committing violent crimes in the future.[2] However, the offender can be paroled or released at any time if it is determined that the offender is no longer a danger to society.

Wavestation rocks, but isn't as tweakable as I'd like (wavetable is always gonna be like that). The Polysix is one of my favourites, but can be a little thin. FM7 is also good at pads, but outside of the easy-edit mode it's the most unwieldy beast ever (and easy-edit is none too flexible). Probably my favourite for all sounds at the moment including pads is the Korg MonoPoly plugin. Hardware wise the Roland JP8 makes beautiful pad sounds (if a little dated). Not sure what emulators for it are available, and doubt you'd find a real one anywhere. Oh and also the Nord Lead. That is good at all the things.

Quote
1) POLICE NEVER PURSUE COMPLAINTS IN WHICH THERE IS NO INDICATION OF
LACK OF CONSENT.

The Assange transcripts, in contrast to any typical sex crime report, is a set of transcripts in which neither of the women have indicated a lack of consent. There is one case of in which Miss W asserts that she was asleep – in which case it is indeed illegal to have sex with her – but her deleted tweets show that she was not asleep, and subsequent discussion indicates consent. This transcript, with no stated indication of a lack of consent, is an utter aberration in normal police processing of sex crime complaints.

2) POLICE DO NOT ALLOW TWO WOMEN REPORT AN ACCUSATION ABOUT ONE
MAN TOGETHER.

The transcripts indicate that the police processed the two accusers' complaints together. All leaks to the media present the two women's narratives together. The two women themselves reported that they went to the police and gave their testimonies together. This is completely unheard-of in sex crime reporting procedures, it violates law and process, and the burden should be on Clare Mongomery, QC or Marianne Ny to produce a single other example of this being permitted, EVER. Never, never, never will two alleged victims be allowed by police to come in to a precinct and tell their stories together, even or especially if the stories are about one man.

3) PROSECUTORS NEVER LET TWO ALLEGED VICTIMS HAVE THE SAME
LAWYER.

Both women are being advised, as we saw above, by the same high-powered, politically connected lawyer. That would never happen under normal circumstances because the prosecutor would not permit the risk of losing the case because of contamination of evidence and the risk of the judge objecting to possible coaching or shared testimony in the context of a shared attorney.

4)  POLICE NEVER EVER TAKE TESTIMONY FROM FORMER BOYFRIENDS.

In the Miss. A. transcript is a truly bizarre aberration, the report of a former boyfriend of "Miss A.' who testified to police that she always used a condom in her relationship with him. Anyone who supports rape victims through the reporting process is feeling the top of her head lift off from this wildly atypical and actually illegal inclusion of an alleged victim’s former sex partner’s in the complaint.

5) A LAWYER NEVER TYPICALLY TAKES ON TWO ALLEGED RAPE VICTIMS OF THE SAME MAN AS CLIENTS.

A high-powered attorney -- or any attorney would never allow him or herself to represent two women claiming to have been victimized by the same man, for the reasons above: the second woman's testimony could be weaker than the first's, thus weakening his or her chances of success in court and also risking that a judge will object to cross-contamination of the women's stories.

Sounds like its written by some blinkered Assange supporter eh? Well, no. Its written by one of the western world's most prolific and well-known feminist authors, who is also one of the most prolific and well-respected advocates for rape victims. There's someone who understands sexual assault law better than most saying (and being censored saying) that this case is unusual enough that she'll side with the accused. Which, in a "your word against mine" scenario like this, is highly unlikely for a well-known rape victim advocate.

The dude in the come again (the shop opposite the lazy dog, I know not why we call it "the come again" except for possible roots in Simpsons-based racism) blatantly, BLATANTLY sold my debit card when I left it in there one time. It got used about 6 months later on a spree of ciggie and booze buying at co-ops across the southwest.

Didn't you cancel your card?

I knew someone would ask.

I cancelled my card but back in the day (and possibly still) Natwest (and possibly other banks) would attach cancelled (lost or stolen) cards to a fraud account and monitor activity, so they can track fraudsters. Then they'd send a nice letter to the customer saying "tell us these transactions wasn't you within 2 weeks or we'll assume it was and then we'll debit the entire amount from your account, leaving you overdrawn by £3000. Also, we'll do it on a Friday about 5 minutes before we shut. And we'll send the letter to your mum's house whilst she's on holiday for three weeks."

And that is why natwest are cunts.

I got the money back by Tuesday, but that whole weekend was like some sort of a waking nightmare.
