Re: The 'I Just Bought' Thread - Technology Edition

It monitors the noise and replays it out of phase which cancels it....the opposite would double the output which is how the LOUD function in radios works. Eg, a note of say 60hz (waveforms) a second is played, and the same feed played at a delay that corresponds to halfway through the waveform woul...

Re: Shithole or its lovely here

Oxford is the UK's most "woke" city, according to some bullshit. So that's nice, I guess.

We had to get our intern to explain what the fuck "woke" meant.

I have really tried to like Tool, I just don't get their hook. They are pleasant enough to listen to, but I find all their stuff very samey and it just doesn't draw me in.
I don't even get as far as pleasant. I can appreciate the skill it's taken to hone their craft, but even that's a stretch.

Re: The Room 101 thread - for things you hate or just having a bloody good moan

My biggest problem with social media etc is that everyone knows when you're online or have read a message. Sometimes you just need a bit of peace but it's always "I CAN SEE YOU READ THIS FOUR HOURS AGO." There is no such thing as being switched off in the digital age. Bollocks isn't there. Here's a...

And where, pray tell, did you holiday?

If you went to Ibiza or somewhere else equally chavvy and shit, you've no-one to blame but yourself.

Re: The gig thread

I'm seeing Ice Nine Kills in London on the 27th September. Their latest album is fucking awesome IMO. Each track is inspired by a horror film, with a funny (to me) title. e.g. "Rocking the Boat" is based on Jaws , "The Jig Is Up" based on Saw , etc. Promises to be a fun night! :D I've also got ticke...

Re: Control

Can anyone give me a tl;dr of this game? The launch video shows some superpowers and giant monsters, but that's all I know at this point. What's the deal?

English is fucking stupid anyway. Almost nobody outside of professional writers gets it's/its correct because it's fucking stupid, but it still annoys me.

Most things: apostrophe for possessive.
Pronouns: lol no.

His, hers, theirs, yours, ours, its, whose.

Re: Star Wars: The Mandalorian

At least GoT was available in the UK legally. There's literally no way anyone but people in the north Americas can legally get this. Their piracy rates are going to be brutal.

I'm struggling to find the article, but there was also a forensic doctor who said that the broken bones in his neck were not possible from his method of suicide (knelt with bedsheets tied around his neck). [adorns tinfoil hat] I've read similar analysis, and it's not impossible, just less likely. T...
