When you meet someone new, do you know what to say but still say the wrong thing? How much do you overanalyze everything that’s happening in your relationships? What do your brain, your heart, and your uterus think when their expectations of you are too high? Adulthood is a Myth explores these questions and more in over 100 comic strips. Writer and artist Sarah Anderson compiled the best of her work from the onlineSarah’s Scribblescollection and created plenty more comic strips to explain the insecurities and set back introverts face as they come into adulthood. These crisp black-and-white comic strips cover stressful situations like trying on clothes, being in crowds of people, obsessing over your flaws, and making the inevitable but always ill-advised comparisons to people who have figured out more than you have. Other comic strips show the unnamed main character having fun with her body fat, embracing her imperfections, and finding pleasure in little things like lying on warm laundry, wearing men’s hoodies, and embracing holiday costumes.

A few months ago, I had the sincere pleasure of meeting a gentleman by the name of Skip King. “Is this your car,” I asked the high-and-tight haired, bomber-jacket-wearing man standing next to this weathered little Lotus. Proudly, Skip confirmed that the battered and bruised Elan was his and, in fact, had been since 1970. Naturally, I had to ask how many miles he had put on this beautifully patina’d British coupe. Laughing, Mr. King informed me that the car, believe it or not, has incredibly carried him more than 500,000 miles. Owning a single car for 50 years is a long haul commitment, to say nothing of that car being of the tiny vintage sports-oriented variety, so we sat down with Mr. King and talked to him about this journey of automotive fidelity. Andrew Golseth: Skip, what were you driving before the Elan? Skip King: I had a Ford Mustang. When I first joined the Army, I didn't have a vehicle until I went to Officer Candidate School.

What a pleasure it was to see Ray Reardon in the studio there. Six time champion of the world, an absolute legend. Judd Trump is level. I thought Stuart Bingham in the first four frames this evening looked a bit cautious, Darren. Yes, it has a different start from what he had earlier this afternoon.

TasnimIranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif condemned certain countries for trying to endanger other countries for their own safety, stressing that ensuring security at the expense of the insecurity of others is “unrealistic” and “absurd”. “... in a globalized world, achieving security at the expense of insecurity of others is an unrealistic – even absurdproposition,” Zarif said on Sunday while addressing the 53rd edition of the Munich Security Conference (MSC) in Germany. Following is the full text of Zaif’s speech: It is a great pleasure to be here again and to share with you some thoughts about the ongoing transition in the postwestern global order and its implications in West Asia. I believe what is urgently needed today is a cognitive transition, commensurate with the realities of the global transition; realities that have • challenged zero-sum approaches; • overwhelmed global as well as regional hegemonic aspirations; • and undermined convenient framings and alternative facts.

I told her over and over that the protest in Tel Aviv had been totally legal, that I had not tried to hide my signs, and that I simply wanted to pay my respects to my grandmother. I told her that I still wanted the opportunity to pay respects to my grandmother. After about six hours, they decided that they would not arrest me but that I would be given a ban from entering the old city, and Western Wall, for the remainder of my time in Palestine and Israel. They seemed to take pleasure in the fact that this meant I would not be able to say a prayer for my grandmother. My grandmother passed away in June 2016 at the age of 96. Although she and I disagreed strongly on Zionism, I loved her with all my heart and wanted to pay tribute to her memory. Perhaps I will be able to do so when there is freedom, equality, and justice in Palestine/Israel.

Caterham boss Graham Macdonald tells Steve Cropley how new production techniques and a focus on driving pleasure will keep the firm relevant for years to come To the naked eye, the Dartford street occupied by Caterham Cars doesnt much resemble the ‘broad sunlit uplands’ of Churchill’s famous speech, even though the statesman lived nearby. Instead, Kennet Avenue is crowded, down at heel and industrial, and its best vista features a sandwich van at the end of the road. Even so, when you consider Caterham’s rapidly improving financial performance and prospects, maybe the allusion works. This manufacturer of the now 60-yearold Seven sports car has sprung back to its best after a decade of uncertainty that was fuelled first by the collapse of its engine and chassis suppliers, and then, bizarrely, by its own over-ambition. Today, led by an optimistic and financially savvy CEO, Graham Macdonald, Caterham Cars is working again at full capacity.

Moreover, the idea that most Palestinians would settle for anything less is practically delusional. Although Arab leaders are as frustrated as ever with the divided and failing Palestinian leadership, the issue is important on the street. After the turmoil of the Arab Spring, the regimes in Egypt, the Gulf, and elsewhere are not keen on provoking their citizens over the subject. On the one hand, Trump’s flexibility and bluster can be seen as the positive pragmatism of a deal-maker. On the other hand, it also suggests an astounding naivety and a lack of understanding of the details of the conflict. Policy seems to fluctuate depending on who Trump last spoke to. Reversal on the US embassy, for example, appeared to come after meeting King Abdullah of Jordan , who emphasised the possible negative implications. While Trump seems to take a great deal of pleasure from being unpredictable, this does not augur well for peace in a chaotic region.

With an official teaser video, our anticipation for the new 2017 BMW ALPINA B5 grows even more. The manufacturer from Buchloe shows us his interpretation of the G30 BMW 5 Series in a heavily camouflaged shape on a winter test track, but the most important feature is still visible despite camouflage film: The joy of driving and the Alpina-typical driving pleasure that comes with the new B5 Biturbo. Responsible for this is primarily the V8-Biturbo, known from the current B7, with a displacement of 4.4 liters, which should be even more impressive in the lighter environment of the ALPINA G30 B5. Although there is no official confirmation at this time, we're only going to reference the power levels found in the B7 608 hp and a maximum torque of 800 Newton meters. Clarity regarding the engine and the resulting driving will be revealed in two weeks at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

His latest game, Thimbleweed Park, follows two detectives as they attempt to solve a murder by exploring a Twin Peaks-esque town, and utilises a pixel-based 2D art style and the same point-and-click interface that will be familiar to anyone whos played a classic LucasFilm adventure game. Left-clicking within the environment causes your active character to move, and you can interact with the environment by choosing from a selection of nine verbs, including such classics as use, look and talk. “We want to build a game that’s how you remember those old games being.” Ron Gilbert So far, so 90s, but the real pleasure in Thimbleweeds interface is how it streamlines this process. Characters will run if you double-click in the environment, or automatically walk through a door if you choose to open it.

Im alright, not recovered / It got me high to try and love her, he croons. In the comedown from Valentine's Day, music like this is a welcome reminder that not all love is what it seems. Below, listen to the new track and read what TOTEM has to say about the song, his curious blend of Boyz II Men and Phil Collins and navigating the narrow parameters of the pop industry. Whats the story behind Up & Down? I dont know many people who havent been taken advantage of romantically at some point. Up & Down is about being in the middle of this tug of war between pleasure and pain. Is there a particular personal experience this song draws on? Sadly, more than one. Nice guys finish lastin their early 20s. How would you describe your music and your genre? Did you always expect to be creating this sound, or if not, how did you end up where you are? I used to think of myself as R&B and then pop, but I think the truth is somewhere in between.
