Re: can sue your company for failing to meet the payroll even if it is bank's fault.

But it's a pretty fucking stupid thing to do.

cos for A) there is less than zero chance of winning in 'n' years time when it gets to court.

and for B) you'll find yourself at the back of any good queue, and the head of any shitty queue until they find a way to sack your ass.

Re: The end of any driving pleasure

Thoughtful and insightful post however 1 small issue.

" I base this on the continued existence of classic cars. "

no chance mate!

quality cars in days of yore were built as well as they could be.

quality cars these days are built so you need to buy a new one in a few of years.

Re: IMHO, BATSHIT

Re: energy and consciousness

I appreciate that I am on thin ice here.

And I have absolutely no wish to be associated in any way with the cockwomble(heheheheh) in question.

but on the question of consciousness and energy... i think there is a clear link.

What is 'me' is an unintended consequence of all that electrical activity going on behind my eyes.

electrical _energy_ that is. ergo I am energy, when the energy goes away... I stop.

that said, crystal vibrations is bollocks (apart from,,,, err real ones)

dowsing is just a twat in a field with a stick.

Re: Still Time......

There was still time to manage the immense economic and societal dislocations this evolution caused...

And I'm sure the millions being ruthlessly exploited by the satanic mill owners (read that how you will) living in squalor, regularly thinned by cholera and typhoid had an abundance of patience while waiting for the regulatory system required when 1 man has 10,000 places to fill and 11,000 individuals need to stay alive was slowly brought into being.

I mean those who survived did.

Re: almost any reason....

Actually the common thread to all of the above, recent murders in addition to the ethnicity of the victim is the occupation of the murderer, they were all police officers. just a few of the 70 odd homicides committed by the US police each MONTH.

Not all perps. not necessarily all Black or Hispanic, just all dead. (now I come to think of it the guy asking cops directions who was shot in the head was white I think)

protect and serve indeed.

The merkin sickness vis-a-vis guns is well documented, we in the free world fail to even register surprise with each passing massacre.

Logical management?

How does the 'capitalist solution' hold up when corporations are, as is increasingly the case, utterly focussed on this years figures? Screw the catastrophe that's 3 years down the road, that's someone else's problem.

It may not be logical to critically deplete a particular resource.... but it happens all the time.
