EDIT:  Also, please don't cheat.  Very, very bad idea.  There's practically no consequences for it in high school, but it's just terrible to do so in college.  I've heard of a few kids getting expelled for it. 

Basically none of this is true. You have to be a moron to get caught, and even if you do get caught the chances of being punished for it are low. Low-level cheating like looking at the paper of the person sitting next to you is ubiquitous and entirely free of consequences; even when you do get caught (which is rare, because TAs don't care) the worst that will happen will be a reminder from the instructor to the class for everyone to keep their eyes on their own paper. In loosely-proctored classes, it is even possible to tell your answers to the person next to you, again without consequences. Low-level cheating is also a constant fact of life on homework assignments; if you're not searching the Internet for the questions on your problem set before you do it, you're just not doing your due diligence.

A friend of mine did once get caught cheating, because he did something that by his own admission was very stupid; he pulled a problem set off the Internet late one night without checking whether all the answers matched up, and one did not, which led to his professor noticing. No action was taken and he wound up with an A in the class. Nobody I know has ever been subject to disciplinary action for cheating. It's not the sort of thing that happens.

Obviously given my social position I would vote for either the Alliance or the Schoolteachers Doctors and Lawyers Party.

With the current state of the environment, why would anyone want to do that ?
Do what exactly?

Okay how will you spend the money to increase productivity?
Whichever type of stimulus is the most effective at reducing unemployment, really. I don't have a platform of my own.

Sarcasm: So you suggest death camps for the unemployed?

Please move this to a different board. This does not directly concern the Greek election.

It's interesting to see that Muslims have finally moved from PASOK to SYRIZA. SYRIZA's best performance in the country is in Rhodope, where ND won and PASOK finished in second place in June 2012; now the SYRIZA vote has risen from 19.75% to 49.36%, the ND vote has gone from 27.28% to 19.99%, and the PASOK vote has fallen from 20.54% to 3.27%.

None of this discussion is particularly germane to an election thread. I suggest politely that all of you take it to the Economics board.

I feel like this would have been a more relevant question five years ago when SYRIZA wasn't the dominant left-wing party.

Union citoyenne du Québec is also a strong contender, although I'm not sure if that still exists.

Why, exactly? Just because they're social democratic federalists? For a similar reason, I would suggest PUP in Northern Ireland.

Because as far as I can tell their support base is composed exclusively of Atlas posters.

Right country, wrong party. It's the Democratic Alliance. Union citoyenne du Québec is also a strong contender, although I'm not sure if that still exists.

I don't talk to anyone about these things (normal). I don't know who would be running, even. I guess Hillary Clinton will win but otherwise who cares? I assume everyone I talk to has the same generic liberal opinions as I do.

At the press conference following the screening, Trier was asked by a journalist from the Daily Mail to justify why he made the film, to which the director responded that he found the question strange since he considered the audience as his guests, "not the other way around." He then claimed to be the best director in the world.
14  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: What's the best paying job that only requires a 40 hour work week? on: January 15, 2015, 08:54:02 pm
From what I've gathered, the answer is probably certain IT jobs, especially if done for the government. Even more awesome about them is you often only have to actually work ~25% of the time you're clocked in as well quite frequently.

You can make far more money doing corporate work than you can with the government, at least in that field.

I'm not particularly active now, but I've been registered in Atlasia since 2007 and I've been a prominent figure at many points during that juncture. If you're interested in hearing about the distant (or more recent) past, give me a topic and I'll tell you about whatever you want to hear about.

Option 1, of course!  I could get a flat in Manhattan and NY Rangers season tix at 200K.  My days could be spent exercising in Central Park and hitting up all the great little coffee joints NYC features.  Wonderful!

I don't even care for baseball but this is literally the perfect answer.

The New York Rangers aren't a baseball team.

I love distant and deserted places. There's no sight quite like a grand courthouse looming over a tiny town. I've never been to West Texas, but I hope to go someday.
20  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Where do you rank on the "privilege index"? on: January 12, 2015, 04:34:51 am
This is a more expansive definition of the privilege points system that is used in my social circles, since that omits religion and country of origin, which strike me as somewhat redundant to the other categories. By that standard I am a 2, while by this one I am a 3, since I am a straight American male.

You can go anywhere in the world and if you are a white person things will be better for you than if you are not. Yes, that includes North Korea.
