Read an article here the other day that the Pirate Party is up for 6% of the votes in Germany for instance. Wonder if they manage to stay that high and actually make a difference in the political climate ^^ I also read an article that said the German Pirate Party are struggling because only about h...

Re: Searching for a job

It's not because of laziness or lacking ability to take orders. Instead, it's more about the fact that my mind is slow at work and not capable of taking in too much in stressing situations before having to dispose of some of it, and my abilities to take orders are mostly not needed as almost all th...

There are always options. Stop focusing on what you think you can't do so finish high school if that's what's needed.

Re: Searching for a job

And nobody actually answered my original question ^^ OK let's looks at your original question which I've quoted below. I'm wondering about an issue of applied ethics: I most likely won't get any jobs I search for, and most likely I'm pretty bad at doing most of them even if I try to do good; is it ...

Re: Searching for a job

hmmm... sounds like something taken out of Eckhart Tolle's books that last one :P or some other self-improvement book Getting out there and making an account for yourself and working for others means lessening focus on yourself and your self-concerns, unless you have had an inheritance or won money...

Re: This must be the best American president candidate ever!

corporate firewalls are easily dodged. Try "Tor" computer program or one of the tunnel websites (that is: "btunnel.com", "vtunnel.com" and so on), or http://www.muffintrap.com/ Sometimes you'll have to try several such site's. One of them should work. (Some of them have their own "youtube" version ...

Thanks. I'll try to remember to watch the video later as I don't know an awful lot about him politically (though I've just hada quick look at the Wikipedia article on him).

I'm behind a corporate firewall at the moment and YouTube is blocked so care to elaborate on who you're referring to?

Re: Black People and Crime

Think real hard, why do you think blacks with about 12% of the U.S. population represent about 90% of professional football, basketball and baseball players? Oh, the diversity! You obviously don't watch much baseball do you. And although the percentage is high in the other sports it's not 90%. But ...

Re: Oceania has always been at war with Eurasia

You think you are naking a logical point of any kind? After 9/11, are we to tell ourselves, "well, because he fought commies, it is okay that he murdered more than 3,000 innocent people?" No but it might be useful to remember who armed and trained him in the first place. 1. Who said there has been ...
