    And the people in the houses

    All went to the university

    Where they were put in boxes

    And they came out all the same

    And there's doctors and lawyers

    And business executives

    And they're all made out of ticky tacky

    And they all look just the same

  • Conservatives plan to bring back mandatory National Service
  • You think NATO v Russia is going to require conscription?

    Or, sorry, let me rephrase that. You think Albania, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Montenegro, Netherlands, North Macedonia, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, UK, and USA v Russia is going to require conscription?

    Or, sorry, let me rephrase that. You think 966 million people v 145 million people is going to require conscription?

    Or, sorry, let me rephrase that. You think a country that has been at war with its small neighbour for 10 years and is struggling v the largest military alliance in the world with the largest economies in the world would require conscription?

    I've been a bit of a dick here to get my point across but making excuses for the tories bringing back conscription is also a bit dickish.

    If you want to sign up, go for it. If there comes a point where it's required, I'm a relatively young fit man so would consider signing up too. But only when there's a need for it. There is no need yet.

    Plus, if we're going for WW3, we're all gonna die in the nuclear blasts before we even get a chance to put boots on the ground anyway.

  • Google Accidentally Deleted $125 Billion Pension Fund's Account
  • Let the people who installed/created it maintain it or let a bunch of new folk do it, which is likely to work best?

    The abroad part isn't the issue. We're a global village with the Internet now, after all. It's the outsourcing part that's the issue.

  • Children's mental health records published after cyber attack
  • NHS Dumfries of Galloway has confirmed some children’s mental health records have been published by criminals following a cyber attack.

    Can't even get the first line of their story correct. Dumfries AND Galloway

  • Falklands dispute may last decades - Argentina president
  • They've done a lot of exploration, though. I worked on some of the kit that went there. It came back pretty beat up, so it's rough out there, but there's plenty of oil.

    New oil extractions were halted in the North Sea for a while, not extracting it doesn't mean much. It just means it's not been deemed profitable enough yet.

  • Scotland launches campaign "give cycle space", reminding that those riding bike are real persons
  • There's been a huge uptick in pedestrianisation, bus gates, cycle lanes, Low Emission Zones, and now an ad campaign supported by the Scottish police. The SNP just dropped their agreement with the Greens, and it's cost their leader his job.

    Infrastructure takes time, and it's moving in the right direction.

    Could it be faster? Absolutely.

    But this campaign is hardly something to be complaining about.

  • Has community engagement dropped off suddenly?
  • To be fair, what do you expect people to talk about?

    5-12 comments covers most topics for a given article/meme. Any more than that, and it starts to just become a repeat of what someone else said.

    Do you want to read 10 copies of "lol that meme is so me!"

    I always thought it was wild that your average thread on Reddit could garner thousands upon thousands of comments, with the vast majority of them being repeats of something someone already said.

    Then factor in that those same comments are in the next thread, and the next one. That's not engagement, that's insane!

    The comments here are far more sparse, but they still cover all your bases. You still get the interesting info dump from some expert or hyperfocused individual who's done a bunch of reading, you still get a humorous pun or joke, and you still get the "well, actually, this is wrong because..." just, now, it's like 1 of each type instead of a thousand people all trying to crack the same joke in one thread.

    Edit: to clarify, I mean 5-12 top level comments

  • Strange question about concentrates?

    Hi trees!

    I've an odd question for you. I've got a concentrate tank that spontaneously died on me. Instead of wasting it, I decided to try and get it working again by pouring the concentrate into the standard vape chamber that came with my vape. However, the liquid is so viscous that it doesn't seem to flow into the coils (needed a hair dryer to get it to flow into the chamber!).

    I tried pouring some normal e-liquid in and mixing it up to try and water it down, but that hasn't really worked either. The two liquids don't seem to mix.

    Has anyone tried anything similar and had any luck making concentrate less viscous so it will vape in their standard chamber?

    I guess I see why concentrates tend to come in really thin, tall chambers now

    I've been playing BG3 splitscreen with my gf, when we first started Shadowheart would follow me and Gale would follow her. We didn't play for a long time, a bunch of updates have been out since, and when we started again Gale would just stand alone in a room and not move. I switched to play as him and now both Shadowheart and Gale follow me. How do we make it so that Gale begins following my gf again?

    To be honest, the following isn't even really the main issue. The main issue is in battles I now get to play as 3 characters and she only gets 1 as opposed to the 2 and 2 split we were getting before.

    Thanks for your help!

    Version: PS5

    When I press L2 my PlayStation name is visible when I hover over my character, Gale, and Shadowheart. Her username is visible only when she hovers over her character. She can't select Gale or Shadowheart to play as, the select button is greyed out.
