  1. I would, yes.. True, who ever only wants to be friends? However, I don't mind being 'only' friends since I'm utter shit at everything else and thus don't set any other targets. I get what you mean with that. Dunno if you can get it in the UK.. Here in town it's quite a bit cheaper than on the site as they buy big tubs and fill their own small ones apparently. Worked very well for me, my mum and my grandmother the doctors thought. I say I don't mind because I would not have any objections should she want to change something. But it would have to be her making a move, or at least hinting at it being fine with her. (there's an issue with this: I can't explain just how immune I am to girls hitting on me. It's developed into a running gag.) So I'm genuinely content with being friends. Yes, outcome independence.. I have learnt it with lots of things, but not yet with humans. Really sound advice though!

  3. yeah, well maybe. But on the other hand I've always been weird like that, not just recently. Starting to write stuff and keeping it short, then noticing that it won't make sense and shoving in some details simply doesn't work, especially at 4am or whenever I wrote it (was surprised it got saved as draft!). Wish I had typed it in spanish though, it'd mean I could speak more languages. Sometimes brilliant, sometimes not so much. Always a pain in the arse.
  4. Honestly, that's true to a certain extent.
  5. I was about to start this post with "Girls are f**king complicated", but quickly realised that that's not needed since this thread exists. Met up with a girl from school again last week, we manage to meet about twice a year, talk so much that I get the feeling that we can't talk because we talk to much. Kinda like a very short attention span in conversations. Topic A, one question, Topic B, one question et cetera. Quite interesting, kinda fun, kinda frustrating. I do get the impression that we get along well together, as we used to before we lost contact for a couple of years. What does get to me a bit is that she hardly ever bloody answers texts. Yesterday morning I thought that I managed to get a conversation going again. She had shown me a pretty big scar and I didn't really get to ask anything about it (the whole 'Topic X, one question, next' thing) so I did that and told her that I used to have a brilliant scar healing cream. Was in town yesterday evening and thought I'd just get some as my mate could use some too. Told her she can have half the tub. No answer, which is pretty frequent by her, no idea why though as it doesn't really reflect how we get along when we actually meet up. I know I'm not very good a the girls thing, but I did think that I was decent at the general "being friends with humans" thing. Not sure if I shall put this in here or the angry thread, I don't view her as gf material (not that I think I would mind) but more as "I'd rather keep you as a friend because friends usually last longer". But I have been wondering if she shuts down because she thinks I might be out for the former. Don't know what her past regarding that stuff is to be honest. I just happen to have a over analysing brain and have a bit of a "look out for your friends" thing, as I know that I need my friends and thus want them to be well too. Dunno if that's suddenly weird or anything?
  6. No girlfriend here, but a few general ideas: I made 5l of Mead for basically for anyone I run into and have the feeling might appreciate a present. Bit late for that now though as it takes around 2 months to ferment. Recipe here if anyone is interested. Pretty easy to do too. Parents are getting a fountain pen each that I've made.. Or am making. One should be finished tomorrow and luckily my dad is on holidays for a month, so his has time. Other than that I've been absolutely clueless this year.
  7. Really don't want to dig this thread up but I've got the shovel in my hand already.. With "not unlocking" do you mean the code won't work or when pressing the button to turn the screen on it won't turn it on? I get the latter when connected to a UE bluetooth speaker thing. Only happens with the one we have. After music has stopped playing my phone screen just won't turn on without me mashing the button for a few seconds. No clue why. Might be something similar?
  8. And then people wonder why motorists don't like cyclists..
  9. Sweet shots Dman! Got a photo onto flickrs explore page again Very happy with the colours I managed to get
  10. Assuming the 24" is a street trials bike it would be much easier on that, but I'd say go on practicing it on your 26", like that you'll have less trouble with them on the 24". At least that's my logic.
  11. I can't be the only one that was fairly confused by the title of this? By reading the post I didn't quite see where the broken finger came in! I'd be surprised if the shifters can't be detached to be honest, but I guess everything is possible.

  14. What age primes are you looking at? Most of mine are from the late 60s to 80s and are pretty decent. All have their own character though, and that doesn't necessarily mean that they are extremely sharp, but most will out-resolve a regular sensor (unless you have 30mp on a crop!) There's lots of lenses out there with 10+ aperture blades to retain smooth bokeh when stopped down (and to mesmerize you when looking at them) Corner sharpness wouldn't be an issue on a crop sensor either. You won't find, say a 35/1.4 though as they didn't exist back then, but decent 35/2s can be found. Don't know what you're looking for though, I really don't know much about contemporary lenses, Samyang seems okay but their quality control can be a bit wonky afaik. I enjoyed 35, 85 and 150 a lot on crop. Weirdly enough I use 28, 50, 85, 120 the most on FF. EDIT: damnit. Can I deactivate the shift + enter auto post? I keep messing up with that. Nothing happened for ages and now I've got a billion posts in here. \o/
  15. Maybe 'rash' was a bit a strong word, it doesn't stay nearly as long as any regular rash, it also doesn't get as bad as nettles (though they never really got that bad as much as I remember). Happens with long or short sleeves, so I doubt it's clothing. Pollen/sweating could be, but why would it only affect that area? I once figured it must be something to do with vibrations but I can't quite see how that makes sense.
