What more is there to say? by tellerhw in LabourUK

Tbf, if her treatment during Hartlepool is anything to go by, she might genuinely mean what she says but have zero power to actually do anything about it.

You may have got full political compass bingo there, nice.

トランス男性が妊婦する件もあるけど、この絵文字はやはり、太った男性との意味をすぐ持つかも。

If you had enough temple on the first day, then instead of forcing yourself to go to Kinkaku-ji and Daitoku-ji, then just take more time in Arashiyama to do things like the ride on the Sagano Scenic Railway or go see the monkey, or do a cruise on the Sagano river.

This can be doubly important depending on the two teenagers' attitudes to temples.

Covid is weird and border policies are even weirder. My only advice on flights is to make sure that, whatever you do, you have the option for a fully refunded cancellation. Best book directly with the plane company rather than going through any middlemen, too.

As for the itinerary, I have just one comment. Doesn't it seem such a terrible shame to have your night in Osaka, famous for things that happen at night, be, uh, the one night when you'll probably have to leave the city before sunset anyway?

(If the rest of the plan is bolted on, Osaka is right next to Kyoto, you could go to Dotombori on one of the evenings you have in Kyoto)

Your tickets might not get automatically cancelled at all. JP border policy discriminates based on nationality and residence status, so that plane might still fly if it happens to be full of Japanese people.

I highly doubt tourism will be open in January, so probably best to cancel yourself at the latest possible time you can get a refund for, tbh.

If you plotted the areas of Kyoto you'd be going to each day, on a map, Day 8 would look like someone had gerrymandered it, no?

Why is Nara the last place in Kansai you visit before Hiroshima when it's the only one that doesn't have a shinkansen that goes there? Wouldn't it make more sense to go to Nara after Kyoto and then Osaka after Nara?

Anyway. If I wanted to fit all those things in, my instinct would be to split it by compass direction. Have one day in the east (Gion, Kiyomizu, and everything in between); one in the north (both pavilions, Ryoanji, and the Philosophers' Path, but not in that order ofc); and one in the west (Arashiyama, and you can put Nijo Castle in too because the best route back into town from there goes past it). Day 7 is whichever one of those three is closest to your accommodation, you've just got there from Kamakura and probably don't want yet more transport time.

The remaining two, Sanjusangendo and Fushimi Inari, can be visited on the way to Nara pretty easily. If this leaves you with less time in Nara there is always leaving the option open to go to Osaka later than planned afterwards.

But as others have said, why plan in that much detail anyway?

The best play here is surely to refer to this Adam using pronouns you know she'll be uncomfortable with.

Trying to get back into KSP after several years of absence, and for some reason, I've got classic suborbital rocket acrobatics issues all over again. by Homusubi in KerbalAcademy

[–]Homusubi[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you! I think it was about 2016, 2017? that I was last up to date with KSP, not 2015, but either way, it was when that 'old' ascent trajectory you mentioned was the recommended one, yeah. I went through the tutorial when things started going wrong, so I knew that the trajectory was different now, but didn't know why. Well, now I do. And thanks for your simplified version of the trajectory.

Also, if you find yourself adding more and more fins/control surfaces, something has gone badly wrong.

Huh, that makes sense, noted.

All this talk of drag seems to have been the issue! I remodelled it so that it was longer and thinner, but more importantly, so it relied more on regular liquid fuel rockets rather than boosters - which allowed me to adjust the throttle more on the ascent. That made it possible to avoid the visible air movement (which I presume is an indicator of high drag), which in turn got me to orbit.

Really thanks for taking the time to explain!

Burgers are quite good to explain this with though!

/u/ShamelessLuke makes it sound like it would be like, if, say, all of America except for New York put ham in their hamburgers. Everyone gets confused by their ham-less hamburgers when visiting NY, and think NY is silly for it. NY tries to explain that the word hamburger is to do with a city in Germany and definitely not ham, but gets ignored by everyone outside of NY.

It's like that with cheese, apparently?

Good grief, a lot of people here have weird ideas about sex work, huh? Keep up the good work trying to put 'em right.

Thanks for the tip, I doubt I'll actually go down that route (why would I spend however long working my arse off just so I can go into a slightly different field I still don't care about? What exactly would I do with that much money?) but still grateful that you took the time to reply.

Thanks for the clarification, although it must be said that I don't particularly care whether or not something's a dead end. I don't mind moving sideways instead of forwards, but I do still want the ability to move at all.

The way it works in society is if you just work as hard as everyone else, you will go nowhere. If you work twice as hard you can live a comfortable life. If you work three times as hard, you can raise a family.

Um, no, society doesn't work like that, but we can do politics some other time.

Another one is social skills, if you can work with others, and get along well, this alone is worth learning, if you don't know it already.

And how exactly does one "learn" something this immaterial? Last time I checked it wasn't exactly an option at the local juku.

Got it. Although honestly it sounds soul-destroying enough that I wouldn't do it anyway.

Compared to literally doing nothing, sure - but we're talking thought experiments here, I mean compared to, idk, everyone collectively forgetting that that time period existed in the world due to being under the influence of some sort of JRPG villain or similar.

This is my life right now, no need to explain that to me. I was asking if there were jobs that are literally more of a minus, when job hunting, to have had, than if that period of one's life had never existed at all.
