    So I'm looking on various gaming forums for help with a particular boss or difficult bit on a game.

    Many of the posts are helpful, but without fail there's always one or two fuckers whose only contribution is to say "idk what you guys are complaining about, *I* breezed through that fight five times in a row with both hands tied behind my back". And then say nothing else.

    FUCKING GOOD FOR YOU. Must be nice to be one of the elites, I hope it's not too much trouble mingling with us peons of regular skills.

    Did you ask here? You don't tend to get that reaction round these parts.

    That sounds like GameFAQs. Awful place.

    Nah, I wasn't referring to EG. People here (including me on rare occasions) do sometimes humblebrag (or just brag), but they're usually helpful while doing so.

    The comment referred mostly to Gamefaqs/Reddit/Steam forums.

    The steam forums are probably the worst since they are all PC gamers.

    Oh God yeah. The Steam forums are a cesspit in general.

    You come across this kind of crap a lot, especially on Gamefaqs and the Steam forums. There's a certain kind of person out there who seems to derive intense pleasure from sitting on forums all day claiming everything is far too easy. I generally default to two assumptions about such people:

    1) They are, in fact, very bad at games and can only take out their frustrations by lying about their skill online to make other people feel worse.
    2) They have very, very small penises. Basically "micro-penises" which are just barely discernible as a slight protrusion in the skin.

    To be clear, there are ways of talking intelligently on video-game difficulty and challenging the consensus. You can make a reasonable argument along the lines of: "Dark Souls isn't as hard as its reputation lets on. It has a steep learning curve and requires you to develop a unique skill-set, but once you click with the game, you realise the difficulty is actually pretty fair". I'm not talking about that kind of thing. I'm talking about "OMG you struggled with THAT boss. I beat him on my first go. With my eyes closed."

    I was delighted when they announced that they're going to get rid of time change. No more hateful summer time, back to normal time forever! Now I learned they're planning to scrap normal time instead and have summer time all year! They were supposed to make it better, now they're going to make it even worse. Sunrise at 9 o'clock in winter then, 1-2 hours after average start of work. What the fuck are they thinking?

    Stopped short of handing in my notice but told my gaffer that I'm not going to be joining them on the restructure. I've got about 6 months before I'll be made compulsorily redundant.

    Fun times.
    May have sorted this with a better job and a pay rise at the company that works on the other side of my office.

    Apparently I can network, who knew.

    Genuinely only started with me asking his advice about wanting to leave and whether he thought I was doing the right thing. Total fluke on my part.

    Fingers crossed for me it comes off, lads

    Bikes on trains, folding or full-size.

    Fuck you and your greasy, spikey leg stabbing trap.

    Ride all the way to work or take the train and walk but don't bring that shit with you at rush hour.

    Easily solved if they would just bring back bike / luggage compartments. But good luck with that. :D

    Well, I need to find a new place to live as my current landlord wants to do a major renovation and sell the house.

    Not actually angry at him, he has to do what he has to do, but times like this I do feel like a pretty major fuck up. That I cant afford a place of my own in my mid-30s is really fucking depressing.

    Guess I'll just go and piss more money away into other peoples pockets until I die. Yay for the fucking rent trap.

    I hope the fucking housing economy crashes hard.

    Mostly it's just the feeling of total abject failure at being an adult I feel at times like this.

    I know the feeling. If it wasn't for my parents dying I'd have never been able to get the deposit together for a house.

    Then I bought the house (at a comically high price), which was / is a complete fucking disaster... so that was fun too.

    Housing market in the UK is a fucking nightmare.

    My sister's ex husband used to call me and then go silent as if it was me who called him. Could never work that one out. "Hi mate it's Carl............"

    Well go on then what the fuck you want?
