Update on my osrs experience: probably near hour 24 and all I do is pk. Definitely more entertaining than power mining like I used to

Trent's hopefully coming over tonight, then I'm taking him out for lunch tomorrow since I have a day off work. I had to cancel dinner with mum tonight because I thought it'd be awkward making him meet most of my family in such a short time.

Your progress with Mr Trent is really encouraging me to be more proactive about relationships. So far I have just been on a bunch of first dates that haven't really made me think "Wow, I want to see more of this person" - I am sure I will find a SO like that ;-; #relationship-thread #righthand

Let him meet the family, it's a true test of his commitment.. And it's funny.  :twss:

 

Anyway, what's been happening in my life.. Had to tell someone their sister died, went to a nasty car v motorbike accident whereby the guilty person was a rude woman, went to a firearms incident which turned out to be a suicide, and off for this weekend. Probably gonna take the girlfriend and drive towards central England to do something. And I want to find a Five Guys restaurant..

 

Also it's voting today for the UK, no clue who to vote for yet though. They're all cutting my job except one party.. >_>

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

What's your job and which party won't be cutting it? My guess would be that the Greens are the only ones not to cut it, but given how left wing the Labour Party is on employment - anyone who has been on JSA for a year has to be given a job in the private sector was one of their ideas a while ago, unsure if it made its way into the manifesto - I can't imagine how arcane it has to be for them to cut it. Unless you're like the Sub Manager of Protective Overalls at a hospital or something really out there.

Jet fuel may not be able to melt steel beams, but...that classroom I was in today might have given it a run for its money. It was absolutely horrible. I'm glad it's my last real class for a while. Now I'm sitting here with the A/C on trying to cool off :P.

I heard there were water cuts being made in California too :S? Though eventually some actual rain is going to be needed to replenish the supply...

149x more seats per vote for the SNP than UKIP. FPTP is a sham.

SNP getting more seats than UKIP is not an inherent fault of FPTP, it is unfortunately how the constituencies work out. <50,000 voters in Scotland actually voted for UKIP. 

 

FPTP is still a sham though don't get me wrong. STV /AV would be much better.

FPTP is not a sham, people just don't understand the principle behind it. The media focus on party leaders obscures the fact that we're not voting for a party leader or even necessarily a party, but each constituency sends someone to Parliament and it is Parliament which chooses the PM by expressing the confidence of the house in a certain individual. So how the vote falls within a constituency is, theoretically and realistically, far more important than the national picture. 

 

Meanwhile, what a perfect outcome: Conservative majority which, though narrow, will be bolstered by the de facto collaboration of the DUP and UUP from N Ireland (8 and 2 seats respectively), plus losses for Labour and Ukip and status quo ante for the god awful Greens. Meanwhile, the tribalism of the SNP has only produced a Tory government they were powerless to stop.  =D>

*Twists words* So it is a sham if, and only if, you understand why it is a sham?

Even under your premise that the riding matters more than the country as a whole, FPTP is still a failure. If a candidate can win a riding with >30% of the vote, over 70% of the voters in that riding are not represented at all in parliament. I'm a supporter of a form of listless MMP that I could expand on, but STV also achieves representation within a riding and semi-proportional results too (albeit in a far more complicated manner).

I did vote Labour but I'm not disappointed with the result.

It would not have affected me a whole lot really, I do hope things improve for the vulnerable but I am scared they will only get worse.

 

The Tories got in in the constituency I live in for uni but for my home constituency, a Labour MP was elected by a landslide.

I do kind of wish I was back home voting, but oh well. I think the Tory guy for the town I go to uni in seemed kinda solid.

 

UKIP got in where my boyfriend is from and it was their only seat, there's a lot of banter regarding that
