        From painful personal experience, mental health isn't a subject for ridicule, too many face it every day and for some its enough to tip them over the edge...leaving kids, spouses etc behind wondering what they could have done to prevent it and blaming themselves.

          You have a point and there is always the Samaritans (https://www.samaritans.org/) ready to listen hence another commentard's reference to the free number 116 123

          The background to them is, of course, tragic as well and something that ought to be rammed down the throats of any politician, etc, who wants to control access to valid sexual information. From the Wikipedia page:

          Samaritans was founded in 1953 by Chad Varah, a vicar in the Church of England Diocese of London. His inspiration came from an experience he had had some years earlier as a young curate in the Diocese of Lincoln. He had taken a funeral for a girl of fourteen who had killed herself because she feared she had contracted an STD. In reality, she was menstruating.

          Most who joke here are doing what is common, dealing with the horrors of real life through humour and not actually meaning any harm to those with mental health issues.

          Agreed. This is the first episode of BOFH where I have felt uncomfortable reading it. It feels like a line has been crossed that perhaps shouldn't have been. I know and love too many people who have struggled with depression and ended their lives as a result. I wish that each of them hadn't.

          1. ShadowDragon8685

            Re: Gotta say

            In hindsight, that line was crossed years and years ago when the BOfH and PFY used "hermaphrodite" as a hateful and derogatory term, but they stopped using it quietly and had the wisdom to not Streisand themselves by removing it, nor to draw attention to it by apologizing.

            But yes, this was another line, and it really should not have been crossed this way. Jokes about a boring beancounter applying maximally-anal boring beancountery tactics to the ennui of workaday life? That can work. Joking about beancountery suicide, not funny.

          "mental health isn't a subject for ridicule"

          I actually read it as gallows humour. It's about the only way you can talk about it sometimes. Even just acknowledging that other people also genuinely think "Fuck it, I'm done" and then get on with it can help.

          Stoicism is the exception, not the rule. Life sucks, and sometimes there doesn't seem like a way out. In the same way a drowning person just needs to breath but can't by themselves, a person in a depression needs to reach out for emotional support, but can't by themselves.

          I've missed the signs, and I've had to bury too many friends who took their own lives.

          The over 70 and most (all?) of the other tweets were mocking satire of tweets by the leader of a certain country, one who has an obsessive penchant for Twitter use. It was referring to the leader's age, not the age of the boss.

            This is the best recipe since sliced bread!

            Ingredients

            12 strips bacon

            2 cups 1-percent milk

            3 large eggs

            2 cups all-purpose flour

            2 teaspoons kosher salt

            1/2 cup finely crumbled blue cheese

            Directions

            Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

            Cook the bacon using the "Mauro Method." Line a baking sheet with parchment, overlapping each side 1 to 2 inches. Put the bacon on the parchment and bake until crisp and brown, about 20 minutes. This way, the fat will fry the bacon to a perfect crisp, but not come in contact with the metal pan, creating a mess. Drain the bacon on paper towels and let cool. Once the fat is cooled, reserve 6 tablespoons.

            Microwave the milk for 45 seconds. Whisk together the milk, eggs and 2 tablespoons of the cooled (yet liquid) bacon fat in a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour and salt. Slowly combine the liquid ingredients with the dry ingredients and whisk until combined. Let the batter sit for at least 1 hour (at room temperature) or overnight in the fridge (ideal).

            Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

            Evenly ladle the remaining 4 tablespoons bacon fat into the cups of a 12-cup muffin tin. Heat the muffin tin in the hot oven until smoking, about 4 1/2 minutes. Quickly ladle some batter into each cup of the muffin tin, almost up to the brim. Bake until golden brown with a dramatic rise (doubling in size), 25 to 30 minutes.

            Once immediately out of the oven, place some blue cheese crumbles in the center of each warm Yorkshire pudding. Grind some black pepper over them and serve right out of the muffin tin.

                Kosher salt has larger crystals than non-kosher, and usually isn't iodized.

                A teaspoon of kosher would have less actual salt than a teaspoon of table salt, and more than a teaspoon of rock salt.

            That starts with a 'W', ends in a 'K', and has a two letter word in the middle!

            For some reason my computer always censors it as w**k!

      How about commentardery? As in:

      "I just wasted spend the last half hour in top-quality commentardery on El Reg."

      August? My calendar tells me it's December!

      Anyway, as we are commentards, surely we're just tarding? Or turding for larks?

        Actually, "commenturding" has a ring to it

          Which can then be shortened to "turding"

            And cockneyed to "Richarding".

    Creative Writing

    That's what this is. Extreme creative writing. There are just so many possibilities that could flow from this one.

    I need to be able to add more than one Icon. Smiley, Thumbs Up, and of course..

    Ignorance can be bliss

    I have no idea how to read a tweet and so far have managed to even avoid seeing one on someone else's phone.

    The best upside result of that is only hearing about tweets from the orange potus third or fourth hand, heps to keep my blood pressure down.

    The loosening of a window latch just goes to show, that twittering can be bad for your health.

      re: "the orange potus" -- is that a big ugly bird related to loons? Lots of squawking and flapping about, leaving white gobbets of ... stuff ... on everyone's windshields and in even less benign places?

    Thanks, Simon! Not only brightening up a workday, but also telling it like it is. I always felt the "twit" part of "Twitter" was key.

    "Yes, and a Twitter post is called a tweet."

    "As opposed to a twit, which you may have heard before," I add.

    "Are you sure?"

    "Yeah, you're bound to have heard it," the PFY says.

    "I mean about tweet – are you sure that's what it's called?"

    Classic comedy gold

    "Most people have nothing interesting to say on a regular basis. As the frequency of tweets increases, the resemblance of tweets to senile dementia increases proportionately - particularly where politics is concerned."

    MANY true word is spoken by BofH, and now we can add these :o)

    made me realise the absolute pile of pants accounts I am following on Twitter too

    Why do you have to make everything political? I read El Reg and the BOFH to get away from discussions about senescent morons posting to Twitter!

    We've got the best Reg in the world

    We've got the best Reg in the world here and we've always had it and funded most of it here in internet land. You guys are not all paying your 4% for your el Reg. You Canadians are not paying your 4% ... more like 2% and Justin knows this but he's two faced. He says he pays but he doesn't. We have the best 4%s on the planet here in cloud (cuckoo) land. They are good solid 4%s and you should all have 4%s.

    I'm going to pay the UK's 4% for el Reg because Russia have promised me a golf course and hotel deal in Scotland, England. They should thank God that our 4%s will run their National Golf Service. They will get the best golf and covefe that 4%s can buy.

    Twits

    Someone in this article used the word 'twit'. In the days of the 'ancien regime' before all this web and social plague, a twit was akin to a village idiot. The Monty Python crew used the term frequently. I still adhere to that viewpoint. The thing that bothers me most about President Trump is his twitting, even though in most matters he is a great deal better than his opponents in so many ways. If I am right about that, what does that say about the Democrats. Use your imagination. The world would be a better place if the Twitter-verse suddenly evaporated. Enough of the rant - Merry Christmas, everyone! Oh yeah - one more rant. I suppose many of you out there in twitter-land hate Christmas as you do Christianity. No wonder we got a Trump.
