Zorque,

No ifunny or 9gag? It's like you're not even trying.

Zorque,

Yeah, but what if I misread it? Or i forgot how much time these noodles cook for cause the noodles I cooked yesterday took 9-10 minutes.

Zorque,

So... they knew the value of their own time and didn't overwork when they didn't have to?

Most office workers could probably learn from that mindset.

Zorque,

So you're saying they should have worked less?

Zorque,

That is 100% not how you framed your initial comment. It was very much focused on how the workers weren't going above and beyond to work when they didn't have to.

Sounds to me like they were reacting to a shit situation in the most appropriate way they could.

Zorque,

I mean... you didn't say anything else, how else could you have meant it? You even complained that them leaving on time was inconvenient when someone else dumped something in their desk after working hours.

Zorque,

I mean... the PO shouldn't have come in at 5:01 if they wanted it approved that day. That's just rude.

I work in document control, so I'm sending documents between companies regularly. Often, at the end of the week someone will dump a 100+ document transmittal on us half an hour before the end of the day. And then they go home.

You bet your ass that shit is waiting til Monday.

Zorque,

Good luck finding new ones in the US.

Zorque,

Apparently they're up to three years now. Woo.

Zorque,

... you mean that thing we were talking about?

Zorque,

They're basically online loyalty accounts like you'd have at retail stores.

Zorque,

You must not've been on reddit 10+ years ago.

Zorque,

They had a site redesign to garner more monetization.

Zorque,

Wouldn't that fall under the basic necessities part of OPs post?

Zorque,

Do you know how long it takes to do everything?

Eternity. I doubt even with all time forever you'd be able to do everything. Our world is ever-changing, much less the wider universe.

The one stipulation I'd put on living forever is the ability to change with the universe. Who's to say physics will even allow us to perceive reality in a few billion years, if we're stuck the way we are?

Zorque,

The problem is, if they're afraid they have the resources to do something about it. That much wealth can buy a lot of private armies. It also buys a lot of lobbyists.

It takes more thought and planning then reacting with emotion against them. That feeds their goals just fine.

Zorque,

Don't worry, should it ever happen, there's plenty of wannabe Napoleons who would be willing to step in to take over once theyre gone :)

Zorque,

It takes emotion to make rash decisions based on reactionary feelings.

If you only do things because it feels right instead of what you've thought through and understood as a rational course if action... you're doing the same thing as those who storm capital buildings cause an orange man told them to.

Zorque,

Don't forget congressional and state/local races as well. Trump is only one point of power, albeit much more visible. But the executive branch can only do so much if the legislature is red anyway.

Zorque,

(Psst, it's serial... unless you meant it was a grain, in which case ignore me)

Zorque,

With a liberal sprinkling of the Degrassi audience.

Zorque,

Perhaps breeding cats would be more economical than cows, then.

Zorque,

Ah, you support inaction so the situation gets worse but at least your conscience is clean.
