4 3/10. Not really a fan of Phil Collins' solo work.

Because ensuring your wage and working conditions offer security and comfort takes precedence over temporary inconveniences of other workers. 'Leftists' opposed to strikes on the basis they'd inconvenience workers are essentially opposed to strikes full stop.

BART wants to give the workers a 12% pay raise over the next 4 years. The workers want more.

After not having a pay raise for the last 5, yes.

How much inflation was there during those 5 years though? It was the recession years and many people didn't get raises during that time.

So everyone should get f**ked? How dare the BART strikers ask to be paid what they're worth! We need more, not less, people willing to stop working until they get what they deserve.

Why don't they just get market rates then. Then they would get what they deserve.

And you accuse TNF of ridiculous posts?

There are things in relationships that a man will let slide but a woman would have to make an issue of.  Plus, women in relationships remember EVERY.LITTLE.THING. that happens in that relationship, whereas men will forget (if not forgive).  Times that by two and I think you are a long ways towards figuring out the disparity in numbers here.

...but then again, "lol men!" so we're probably going to take sh**t from the ivory towers for even considering discussing this subject.

It'd be a crying shame to miss more stunning insights/regurgitated clichés.

You definitely sound like a dick on the game.

But it's different when it comes to politics; I take enormous heart from any neoliberal defeat (rare as it is) in a way I just couldn't for something that is essentially entertainment. I almost cackle when seeing another round of Lib Dem obliteration, for instance.
632  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: What sort of clothes do you wear? on: October 21, 2013, 12:31:45 pm
Mostly jeans, t-shirts and hoodies. At work a shirt (sans tie), trousers and a waterproof jacket.

As for style, mostly the opposite of this:

My style is kind of eclectic. I like bright colors and dislike anything that's too baggy. I wear collared shirts a lot.

Definitely to the right.

I vote "Not" because she's on the other side. All the green and the green lipstick are the colors of the Enlightened.

When we had our Ingress anamoly event in Minneapolis, one of the girls on our side painted her eyelashes blue (the Resistance color) which is much better.

WTF is this?

At the risk of sounding like I'm 40, it looks like a reference to a game he's often raving about.

Ed's maintaining his bounce, unlike last year, and Labour'll be happy that his big conference announcement is still being talked about, unlike last year.

However his rating's worse post-2013 conference than it was pre-2012 conference...

It'll be interesting to see the 2015 seat distribution, where it looks set to become even more pronounced.
639  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Luxembourg 2013 on: October 20, 2013, 02:57:41 pm
Under pure proportional, the Pirates and Communists would have gained seats in the South. Alas, I think there is a 4% threshold within the constituencies.

So who ended up getting their seats?

I have a soft spot for monarchies, but it wouldn't work here. King of Chile sounds horrible, and there is not a single Chilean worthy of a crown...

I do too, it's in a cemetery.

Here, here!

Oh, God, I love these guys. I've had so much fun with them. Here is a typical conversation:

Call Center: Hello, is Mr. [Me] available?
Me: Speaking. What's this about?
CC: Hello, my name is Fred and I am calling from Perth. I am calling today to warn you that our records indicate that your Windows computer is infected with a virus.
Me: What's the weather like over in Perth, Freddie? Pretty rainy this time of year in Queensland.
CC: Oh, yes, it is certainly very rainy here in Queensland. Now, please let me help you fix the virus on your computer.
Me: A virus, John? How do you know that?
CC: Our logs indicate that you are infected. Please follow my instructions to get rid of the virus on your computer.
Me: I don't own a computer, Mike.
CC: My name is Fred. And I know that you have a computer.
Me: Oh, you're right! Look at that! You're quick, James!
CC: It is Fred! Please follow my directions. Can you press the Start button please?
Me: The Start button? I don't see one.
CC: It should be located in the bottom left of your screen.
Me: I don't see anything there. Oh my God, you're right! I'm infected. AHHHHH
CC: Yes, I know! It is very serious!
Me: This is so frightening. I've never had a virus on my Linux machine before!
CC: ...

649  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Do you type in "www." before a web address? on: October 19, 2013, 06:18:31 am
One thing that particularly irks me is when people type "www.wikipedia.org" rather than "en.wikipedia.org" which is so much more efficient to do.

There are multiple versions of wikipedia though, with all languages having their own prefixes.

Do you typically switch between different language versions of Wikipedia?

Yep, usually for in-depth European local elections results that aren't on the English wiki. Would it matter if I didn't?
