    take some time off, start anew in a few weeks when you've had some breathing space.

    they might be pushing the role done the throat as they might feel they might be in a good position.

    market is booming, get even the JSA for a while and think a bit about life and our purpose...

    I’d say to build a wall around London and ask for it to re-join the EU.
    It it will be a staggering majority in favour of this.

    the word around the block is that it is the hottest market since dot com era.

    there are a few posts on reddit about it but not quite sure if it is only america related or happens the same in britain as well.

    so far...

    nobody gets ahead in this world. you get ahead as in you are allowed to get a mortgage and have less flexibility to do anything with your life.
    40hpw with amazon is not a treat to do. after working a few weeks there you'd probably be a vegetable.

    immigrants definitely do not get ...

    no I think that is only the british that make a virtue from sacrificing what they eat just to show they are more dedicated to work.
    which is quite bad for your health.

    and just lighten the mood with a meme:



    thanks for the movie reference, I will have a look...

    so all the rich families that haven't done a day's of work in their life just because they have inherited land from 4-5 generations ago, some of them even on slavery, those are fair game.
    but someone working a 50h week that barely affords food and rent should work harder because they do not provide...

    then you've lived your entire life brainwashed by your corporate masters to believe an ideology that only benefits them. and now, with the benefits of age you do not have the courage to acknowledge it.

    no, work in itself is not a virtue. that is why we are hard wired to be lazy and avoid...

    just because you come up with an extreme case where people are actually PAID OVERTIME. and do more than 40pw and manage (very optimistic situation) to earn 2k per month NET. and also they are a COUPLE with someone being in the same situation.

    I can guarantee you that those people probably...

    that part where you are wrong is that working and hard work in itself is a virtue.

    working for a purpose, that is to be desired but working for the work sakes of it and to make someone above you a lot of money well... is hypocritical.

    you have to create a balance between incentivising...

    it won't. that is what the ruling class would want to make you think because they would not want to give their position in this world or share it with anyone.

    they might create some bulltulip jobs where someone does nothing for 40h per week and is depressing because it makes no sense and...

    so a tory gov bot?

    I would make sure that the mechanisms of free market actually work and that through regulation and universal basic income you would compensate for the imbalance in power that you have in the negotiation between workers and employers.

    the sad part is that...

    on the other thread you argued that they should cut benefits to force people into work. Wouldn't that artificially undermine the market and push people in corners because... what else can you do? Starve?

    what kind of governmental bot are you?...

    I think we all do. We all have a little midget in our head that keeps telling us we are not enough. The impostor syndrome a lot of people in tech have.

    And for the above part, I've seen it written in The social animal by Elliot Aronson.

    when you've been useless your entire life but still get decent money (or better than min wage) you grow a sense of entitlement.
    you question how it is that you are useless(you probably know it inside of you) but still mildly successful - so you start to believe that you are actually good at something....
