You don't have to accept a bribe to be corrupt. As UEFA president, he is supposed to act impartially. He used his position to influence the voters and win the tournament for his country.
I hate these pedantic corrections that pop up every now and then, but I really love the word faze and would be delighted if you could bring yourself to help it survive another couple years.
"But it (Stanford) also enrolls an outsize [sic] proportion of wealthy students. In 2010, the university's director of financial aid said the median family income at Stanford was around $125,000."
This is a great gesture on their part, but it also seems like it might be a hollow PR move if they're not actually accepting many students from low income families.
Edit: Added "many" to the last sentence.
Edit 2: Deleted almost all of my first edit because it was a long and inaccurate rant about how median works (yes, I confused it with mean/average). Now that I've realized my misinterpretation, it seems this is actually a huge deal. Go Stanford!
For reference, here is the dictionary definition of lobbyist, and here is the dictionary definition of comcast
Both phase and faze are actual words (they're homophones).
Faze (v): to cause to be disturbed or disconcerted
Phase (v): to synchronize or correlate

Also, yeah, it is a bit odd to see legitimately useful language comments here isn't it? But so long as they're not being used in a degrading manner or to lessen an otherwise strong argument, I guess who cares.
"Concessions at a ballpark or at another venue are called that because the stadium has granted the right to sell food to a certain provider."
At least according to this:
I'd never really thought about why it was called that until you asked!
Unrelated, but just as an FYI... The correct turn of phrase in your last sentence should be "my interest is piqued," not "my interest is peaked." Reference
I'm confused. They both have the same definitions.

Every time average salary is mentioned, I cringe a bit. What you should look at is the median - the value made by the person who is at the middle of the list. Average isn't a good measure because if a few people make a lot of money you get a value which doesn't reflect reality.
In Romania we had a joke about communism. "Communism goes like this: This week I ate two whole chicken and you didn't eat any chicken. On average we each ate one chicken."
Incorrect. Sugar is a readily bioavailable carbohydrate. Carbohydrates are a macro-nutrient, and have, from an evolutionary standpoint, been our primary source of energy. They are, by definition, nutritious.
But really, that's just me being pedantic. I take your point concerning the colloquial/common usage of the word.
To faze is to disturb, bother, or embarrass, but a phase is a stage or step. It could faze your family if your princess phase lasts well into your college years.
I actually checked it before I posted because its not a word I use a lot.
"An autocratic leader is one who rules with an iron fist; in other words — someone with the behavior of a dictator."
Autocratic behaviour is not necessarily connected to dictatorship, it merely means behaving like one. For example Putin was also very much elected and is very popular, but he could still be considered an autocrat.
Leo.org also puts autocratic somewhat close to egomanical.

Of course who ever said anything on the internet or Reddit was fair.
Please explain. I assume girl and boy are OK, so your statement is that white is derogatory?
Do you know what derogatory actually means? I'll tell you.
Something that's derogatory is insulting or disrespectful. If you make derogatory comments, that means you say things that are unflattering, unkind, or demeaning.
Ergo, if you consider 'white' derogatory, then your opinion of white people must be unflattering, unkind, or demeaning. Consequently it is you that is racist. Alternatively if you are white yourself you're not racist, but just halfwitted.

What part of visceral means there is more content?
"When something's visceral, you feel it in your guts. A visceral feeling is intuitive — there might not be a rational explanation, but you feel that you know what's best, like your visceral reaction against egg salad." source
I have played nearly every star wars game in existence, including outcast, academy, kotr, sw:tor, bounty hunter, republic commando, dark forces, etc
Me saying that I FEEL like I'm in the movies is VERY different than me saying this is a compelling, story driven addition to the star wars universe. It adds nothing except a pure emotional and nostalgic feeling that, for me, is unparalleled by any other game.
I'm so tired of people getting on each other's case for stating an opinion. Star wars games have been getting butchered for years. Every iteration over the past 10-15 years has been more disappointing than the games of the previous era. That star wars snobbery doesn't help anyone though. Your bitter reaction to this game is not lessened by my enjoying it. Do I wish there was a campaign and more content? Obviously, and anyone who doesn't is not a very good consumer.
But that I enjoy this game does not mean I haven't "done my star wars research and due diligence".
If used with an object, the verb "flaunt" affects the object...says right in your link. Here, it's not the women who are "flaunting" themselves, but the law that is being "flaunted", meaning they'd be proudly and defiantly displaying the law itself.
Curiously the definition right under that seems to mean the exact opposite: "to ignore or treat with disdain". This seems to be the actual definition of "flout" but I think it's one of those cases where a word is misused so much that it just gets adapted into the language.
That you ignored the critical talking points in lieu of "NO YOU" non-arguments indicates to me you did not watch the podcast, or did not understand any of the points made. You have not actually explained why Target being a soft target does not make this a forced move to save face under pressure. Please answer this.
The other possibility is of course that you are just trolling.
Calling my definitions weird and corrupted does not automatically make it true, you know? Here, let me demonstrate that my understanding of censorship is perfectly reasonable:
> Censorship blocks something from being read, heard, or seen. If you've ever heard the sound of bleeping when someone is speaking on television, that's censorship.
To "censor" is to review something and to choose to remove or hide parts of it that are considered unacceptable.
> Censorship is the name for the process or idea of keeping things like obscene word or graphic images from an audience. There is also such a thing as self-censorship, which is when you refrain from saying certain things — or possibly re-wording them — depending on who is listening.
In this specific case, Target decided to censor their inventory of games under pressure (because it was being sold earlier, they do censor the goods they offer). So we have to possibilities: Target suddenly, willfully, censors what was perfectly fine earlier, or someone with an agenda put so much pressure on Target (in a very disingenuous way, looking at the petition itself) that they were forced to do it.
As an aside: Hacking a comment into individual talking points only works when you intend to actually answer all of them and not take them out of context in order to construct a strawman that leaves out the important parts. Please don't. :)

How strange of you to say that. I also live in the US, but I have seen places with rescued animals that offered them up for adoption.
A quick google search of "adopt + animal" immediately gave me several sites offering animals and using, in some form, the word "adoption".
After looking up the definition of the word "adopt," I have discovered that most dictionaries do use children as the primary example. However the core meaning of the word, specifically to take something and make it your own, is something that applies equally to taking an animal and making it part of your family.
While not one of the more reputable dictionaries, I did find mention of pets in conjunction with the definition of the word.
So yes, you can argue that the word does apply for children, maybe more so than to animals insofar as how the word is defined.
However, colloquially it applies similarly to the acquisition of pets, and is used by several agencies with regard to offering pets for, in their words, adoption.
I think you've got that backwards, but I agree that more electrics are definitely on the horizon. My only issue is that I take long road trips and I have no desire to sit around waiting for a charge every couple hundred miles.
It can be both. Though, admittedly, yours is the more common usage. Not sure why I've gotten into the habit of saying "predate." And, judging by their limited example, I may be using it wrong.
Tori is barely acceptable, although the preferred plural is toruses. There are no words that form the plural by replacing -us with -ii.
> Lawl, you atheists sure love looking at the stats unless it's your end of the bargain
I challenge you to find one single legitimate statistic that I would not love in some way.
>Oh yea, I can't really put my life experiences in some statistic you will believe, so go ahead and throw that out the window
you can't because your life experiences would be considered anecdotes, and therefore unqualified to be represented as a statistic. Go ahead? Dude, your data was thrown out the window before we even knew or cared what it was.
>Also, i think the word you were looking for is coherent, maybe? It's a little better then cohesive. Cohesive sounds like a word to describe your lube.
HAHAHHAHAHAHHHAHAHHA you illiterate fuck.
not only did you not even know what the word meant, you were so fucking stupid that you assumed I'm the one who doesn't know how to use it! fucking priceless!
No. I used the word I used because it is the appropriate one.
Coherent would imply that it was not understandable. It was understandable. It wasn't cohesive because the different parts didn't work together at all
much like the two halves of your brain, I imagine.
Because of data sets like this:
The average of this set would $408,000 but the median would be $10,000. When you have a dataset where the extreme ends can have some abnormally high numbers or abnormally now numbers a median value can give you something that more closely resembles the actual middle-ground. You toss a few billionaires into the pot and suddenly the average income jumps quite a bit.

"Endocrine" refers to "the glands in your body that secrete hormones into your blood." You can't produce more endocrines. Are you talking about the secretions?

>Predatory adj living by or given to victimizing others for personal gain
If I put out a bait and capture an animal for it's fur or meat then that's predatory.
Sure you can blame the animal for being dumb, which seems to be the point you are making, but it's just wrong to say I am not a predator.
Words are sounds that have meaning because a population of people agree upon that meaning. You can try to substitute another word or refuse to use the term predatory in relation to business all you want, but to be honest it doesn't matter what you think, unless you can convince the majority to change their usage of the word.
I suppose you might be able to make the argument that all commerce is predatory by its nature and that the exception is when two parties mutually benefit if you want. I don't see how that really changes anything though.
"Russian officials have lied" is not the premise of Bellincats argument. A premise is a statement that is assumed to be true and from which a conclusion can be drawn. Whether Russian officals have lied or not is evaluated in their argument and a possible conclusion.
Their premises were "The open source information (videos/google maps) is reliable" and "It is unlikely that the destruction from the bombing has been cleaned up and the structures (wall/posts) have been restored completely". These need to be true for their argument to work. Assuming they are, it is concluded that the satellite picture provided by Russian officials is not correctly dated.

>For the first part, it's hard when the conversation is dominated by straight white dudes. This isn't just a problem for trans issues, it's consistently a problem everywhere minorities are involved.
Well, straight white dudes do make up a pretty hefty portion of the population. What's an appropriate number of straight white dudes for any given conversation? 1? 5? Is 10 too many? Should straight white dudes just be silent on any issue that doesn't involve straight white dudes?
It just seems ridiculous that a person commenting on an issue is frowned upon because they're a straight white male, even if they're commenting that it's wrong or unjust or whatever.
I've seen other people get outraged when straight white dudes don't speak out about racial/gender issues. It honestly seems like you're damned if you do, damned if you don't here.
>For the second part, do it because it's the right thing to do.
I don't agree with that. I'm not gonna stick my neck out for people that don't even want my help and actively talk shit about me.
You could just call yourself a gay rights/trans rights activist. An activist is just someone who campaigns for social change. I don't believe that you need to directly be a part of whatever group you're campaigning for to be considered an activist.
Edit: Yeah, that was pretty unclear. I was implying that it should have been written as "phase", but apparently I was wrong because "faze" is correct in this context, and "phase" would actually be incorrect. Source. My apologies!
They're very similar, but there's a subtle difference. When Daniel is upset that his grandpere is spending time with Katarina, he is jealous because he is feeling protective of something that is his. When Daniel is upset because he wants a toy that O the Owl has, he is feeling envy because he is wanting something that belongs to someone else. We are jealous of that which is ours; we are envious of that which belongs to another.
This explains it more clearly than I can.
Actually it's both. I just chose the more well-known term.

>Nor are they generalizing
>"Trans people want to be accepted, but continuously exclude themselves
That's a generalization if I've ever heard one. They group trans people together into a hivemind singular entity with common ideals. then demonize and blame us for being "excluded".
>They supported their opinion with reasoning, which is already the opposite of bigotry,
Where'd you get that from??? show me a place in those three different dictionary entries where it mentions it needing to "lack reasoning". That just sounds like some bullshit made up by bigoted dickholes so they can say "im not [racist, homophobic, transphobic], i'm just being reasonable!!" How do you measure reasonability? That's entirely opinion based.
>their position is inclusive, which is even less offensive.
Inclusive of who and what exactly? Also, you never answered, are you trans? If not, why do you, a non trans person who these issues have no effect on, get to decide what's offensive to trans people? I'm, like, 99% sure you AREN'T trans, considering you getting gay and trans mixed up, and you referring to trans people as "transexual", but what do I know right?
>only faulty generalization is bad, but the poster doesn't do that.
> "Trans people want to be accepted, but continuously exclude themselves"
Do you see nothing wrong with that? Do you look at that quote and think it's sound logic? Do you agree with that? Cause it's a faulty generalization. That's exactly what that is, and if you're cis and think "wow, well said", you're fucking transphobic.

Gay people, trans people, same thing right?????
>Only a fool doesn't empathize with their enemy. I didn't say sympathize. You do know there is a huge difference?
Yes there is a difference. Are you sure you know what that difference is?
>To empathize is to understand or relate to someone else's emotional experience. If you get teary-eyed upon hearing about the death of your friend's pet hermit crab, you're probably empathizing with your friend — unless you're just bored to tears by her story.
>Empathize is often used interchangeably with sympathize, but you'll get no empathy (or sympathy) from usage experts if you confuse the two. When you sympathize with another person, you feel sad that she is suffering, but you don't necessarily relate to her experience. It's easiest to empathize when you've been through a similar experience; for example, if your pet guppy had recently passed away, your friend's hermit crab story would have broken your heart due to empathy.
So you empathize with ISIS?
I have put some small effort into understanding what drives ISIS but I neither empathize nor sympathize with them.

Actually, a “palette” is the flat board an artist mixes paint on (or by extension, a range of colors). A “pallet” is a flat platform onto which goods are loaded.
That is a pretty ridiculous stretch. The word, when used to mean that something or someone is overly concerned with details means that the details are numerous, over informative and/or irrelevant. There are seven words in that post. Overly concerned with minute details, indeed. But let me just throw out some definitions since that appears to be where we are at this point.
Characterized by a narrow, often ostentatious concern for book learning and formal rules
marked by a narrow, often tiresome focus on or display of learning and especially its trivial aspects
ostentatious in one's learning.
overly concerned with minute details or formalisms, especially in teaching. Guess you accidentally left that part out.
Pedantic means "like a pedant," someone who's too concerned with literal accuracy or formality. It's a negative term that implies someone is showing off book learning or trivia, especially in a tiresome way. You don't want to go antique-shopping with a pedantic friend, who will use the opportunity to bore you with his in-depth knowledge of Chinese porcelain kitty-litter boxes. [link]
People seem to be using the word now to describe someone who is being snotty/arrogant/rude/nitpicky. That's fine, but people seem to like the word "pedantic" because it has an air of cleverness (even if it comes off as pretentious) but that sensation is completely lost on people who actually know what the word means.
i think he means that this is just a sub for people to share unreleased music and people's subjective opinions about each individual song/post is irrelevant (which i agree with)

There's a guy who makes money off of documentaries about how he can resist the power of toxins, just do what he's doing, I'm sure it will be fine!

"However, you still haven't even tried to take on my main sticking point." Because it wasnt your main sticking point, you made a statement about indoctrination and then randomly went on about the people in the article and why they want to stop the assembly's. I couldnt care less about why they want to stop it, my original comment was why i wanted to stop it and you responded to me.
"but yet, you are totally for it. " So me not addressing something is me being totally for it? btw im not going to address it because i honestly couldnt care why they want to because its the correct choice.
"If you are against indoctrination, you are against education."
Your being disingenuous with the definition of indoctrination just like your being disingenuous about what these religious assembly's are about.
There you are wrong, teaching facts with evidence isnt the same as teaching beliefs as facts.
"Personally, I don't believe school to just be a place to teach children facts, but also a place to teach students the ways of the world and, like it or not, religious faith is still a major part of the world."
Im guessing your just a troll at this point so i wont respond after this because youre still making out after 3 comments like this is religious education (which is allready a subject) when it blatantly isnt. I agree with teaching kids ABOUT religions, i dont agree with teaching them these religions are true.

Definition of envelop found on Oxforddictionaries.com ;

Wrap up, cover, or surround completely:
a figure enveloped in a black cloak
figurative a feeling of despair enveloped him
Some other career info found on vocabulary.com ;
In the early 1700s, envelope, the noun for "wrapper," evolved from the French enveloppe, meaning “to envelop.” Envelope is always a noun, unlike the verb envelop which means “to wrap, cloak.” Synonyms for envelope range from casing and enclosure to pouch and sheath.

It's not an opinion that prison should be for rehabilitation. It is absolute 100% fact. Penitentiary comes from the Latin paenitentia, meaning "repentance." You SHOULD want them to be rehabilitated while serving time for their crime so that they do not return to a free society unable to work and find a job, go to school, and contribute to their community rather than continue the revolving door process of going in and out of prison further harming themselves, possibly others, and costing the tax-payers more money.
Opinions like these are formed out of emotion. Whether we like it or not murderers, rapists, torturers, drug offenders, child-support skippers, and domestic abusers are all human. They may have done inhumane things and are horrible, disgusting people, but they are still people. I don't want to pay for the domestic abusers housing and food, I want them to do their time, return to society capable of taking care of themselves, knowing that through rehabilitation that what they done was unacceptable and will never do it again.
When your weather is as shit as ours there's nothing to smile about.

As a rule of thumb, if "everyone" uses a word incorrectly in the exact same way, they're using it correctly and you need to get with the times.
Words are great! Here are some of mine:
Also, I enjoy Vocabulary.com quite a bit when it comes to sating my lexical appetite and would highly recommend it!
Hello. I will be your grammar nazi for the day. The word you are looking for is not jealousy. It is envy. Jealousy has nothing to do with what you're talking about.
If that's too much reading, here's the 16 second version
Also, I'm not sure that lying people to trick them into supporting something is a good idea. That could very easily backfire, once the people you've tricked realize what you've done. For example, they might associated UBI with lying, manipulative people. Not helpful. Or, if they conclude it was "only a psych test, and not real," then the next time they see UBI come up for real, they're going to remember that it "wasn't real."
I don't think either of those reactions are likely to help us.

Socrates wasn't serious about his claims, at least not the Socrates character that Plato presents. His "I don't know anything" shtick was just to distinguish himself from the sophists and get other people to start talking. There's even a term for it: Socratic irony.

But I think that's wrong actually, just coincidental, I just found a more probable source containing both numbers: [link]
And aside from the fact that he appears to be getting his Factual numbers from a comedian's routine, he didn't even get that right! Branyan claims Shakespeare had the 54000-word working vocabulary, not everyone who lived at the same time as Shakespeare.
It's a dramatization. Are you familiar with the term? See the mother, begging to not have her infant child sold away?
The purpose of a dramatization is to help you visualize, feel, and understand something. If you look around you, you'll see dramatizations everywhere.
>A dramatization is the acting out of something. You see these a lot in documentaries on TV––there will be a dramatization of the JFK assassination, using actors to show what happened on that fateful day.
Dramatization is a great way to cement learning. If you make a skit in your class showing how photosynthesis works, you are much more likely to remember it.
This explains it quite well, you can find more in the source.
I think an interesting distinction is "envy" vs. "jealousy."
> You can feel envy about something you don't have but want, but you feel jealousy over something you already have but are afraid of losing, like that husband who's always hanging out next door. (http://www.vocabulary.com/articles/chooseyourwords/envy-jealousy/)
Based on what you said, it sounds like you're envious that this woman gets to share an experience with your husband that you can't instead of fearing he will sleep with her or cheat on you.
Emotions aren't black and white, but a complex gradient of gray. I would try telling your husband exactly what you said to each of us. It'll help him understand that it's not that you don't trust him, but you really wish that the situation were different.
Internet Hugs None of this is simple and you should have the space to figure out the nuances of how you feel.
> Their families are killed, there friends are killed, their neighbors are killed and their family dog killed.
Ah, just like the Roman Empire did for assassinators - people who kill prolific politicians by surprise and are paid to do so.
Assassinate your emperor (or any senator), and if you were caught, your entire bloodline would be extinguished while you were forced to watch (and even participate). Then you'd be tortured and killed (but not before you lost your mind).
> I use a mobile reddit client and it doesn't effect me.
Seriously? Effect vs Affect :P
Also, no choice for more themes? I demand a Bauhaus theme that is just a blank page with only number of upvotes visible. Minimalist
Thanks! And to that I'll add Choose Your Words' rather neat "Flounder vs. Founder" article.
You must be a landsman, Yugeulb; That word is far too familiar to those of us who have been to sea, and the very thought of foundering evokes an icy chill nonpareil. With that in mind, I beseech you to read "The Work Gods Are Too Busy to Tend To," a short but heartfelt treatise by a fellow seaman and nonbeliever.
I like using lists of the "GRE hit parade" (common words tested on the GRE), such as this in combination with vocabulary.com. When you look up a word on vocabulary.com, it gives a longer explanation of the definition and gives real world examples from newspapers and books.
You're starting at the wrong end. If you really want this, you first decide to dedicate your life to Hip Hop.
Then you start shaping your life around becoming a more skilled artist.
you become better at writing verses, by vriting verses. So keep writing verses for as many hours a day as you can. First place to look for hours are the ones you are now using to sleep. Then the time you spend doing shit, like tv-shows or chilling, then, like me, you'll come to the enevedible point where you'll have to cut contact with your friends to grind on your shit. Later in life, this applyes to familily, wife, kids and grand kids.And it goes on and on til you die.
If this is a life you want for yourself it starts by shaping your daily routine around practices such as, writing, free-styling, making beats, reading dictionary ([link] - good reasourse).
Good luck, ether dedicate your life to this or something else, or come to peace with being average and die owning the choices you made.

I don't know exactly how to define it on english, but in spanish is called a "broma pesada"...
Here is a translation I just found at the internets...
n. a boisterous practical joke (especially by college students)
a prank or trick played on a person (especially one intended to make the victim appear foolish)
Banning books is absolutely idiotic and should (in my opinion) be a criminal offense. Ideas are how we construct society and make intelligent decisions for ourselves and future generations, thus exposure to a broader set of ideas is critical to a catholic (with a small "c") mindset which affords more opportunity to learn, adsorb, and include.
I understand why certain, especially conservative (religious or political), groups insist on banning books, but that only highlights the fact that the proponents of these philosophies themselves realize that their ideas are foolish and can't withstand the scrutiny of unrestricted thought.
If you actually believe in your philosophy you wouldn't be afraid of other perspectives because you you would know that your philosophy has the most 'true" answer. If you feel the need to restrict access to information your 'answer' is pretty much guaranteed to be wrong, if not actually inimical.
I think you're missing the point, which is that for high energy impacts crumpling is good. You die in the old car because it "holds together well", you live in the new car because it doesn't hold together well at all - it crumples like a crushed can and absorbs the impact.
This is why there isn't much difference between crashing in a 1k helmet and a cheap snell / dot approved helmet safety wise. They both work on the same principle - a layer of foam that compresses and then a hard shell that doesn't budge. At a certain point the hard shell actually kills you in an accident if the impact energy is high enough, You'd actually better off with a giant bicycle style foam helmet in impacts like that.
TLDR; expensive, multi layer foam helmets are being developed but until then crashing in a 100$ snell helmet provides roughly the same protection as a $1000 snell helmet. Cost does not correlate with protection, but hey don't take my word for it [link]
Also, that is exactly what anecdotal menas fwiw, based on your own experiences: [link]
Touché. I guess it depends on how proper you'd like to be.
> In his Modern American Usage, Garner labels this usage as "ubiquitous" but held on to by "die-hard snoots." The Oxford English Dictionary calls this usage of nauseous common
Hey thanks. Palate is actually the proper spelling. The English language is the worst.
As far as single strain examples I've been racking my brain on that for a bit, cant remember. Its used a lot in commercial brewing so if you ask around you should be able to find one. I know Prairie uses it in beers like 'Merica so they like use it in others as well. If youre in the Philly area Manayunk brewer bottles a beer called Dr. Drei which obviously has the strain, never had the beer though so I cant say if its good or not.
Crooked Stave also used to use some sort of Drei isolate, but his beers are going to have some bacteria in them I think.
If I think of any other 100% Drei beers I'll let you know, just drawing a blank.
> That's not something you can imply from his comment at all. All you can imply is that riot says they're not Meglings, which is true since the Yordle change.
To emulate is to imitate and <strong>model</strong> yourself after someone, which includes "following the same principles".
So if a gora wants to follow the principle of renunciation to the extreme, you won't stop him/her from entering? But how would you know when they are doing that as against just having fun?
Both make you feel inadequate-envy is when you want something someone else has, jealousy is when you're worried someone will take what you have.
In case I misread your comment, I can't tell if you are knowledgeably asking for discussion sake, or asking in the case English isn't your first language. Sorry!
You're salty, whiny rant at the beginning of your post is really pathetic. You really have sunken low.
To answer your question I have no idea, I don't know the guy. I don't judge people that I don't know because that seems like the most mature way to evaluate people.
A womanizer is a person that sleeps around... if you're going to use a word you need to know what it means. smfh
Loads of rap videos have strippers in them, yet somehow you're acting like that's some exceptionally rare thing. Perhaps worse, you're implying that because some people assume he did beat his ex that he needs to change his actions due to public opinion. He never talked about Brady's wife so lewdly, she's a supermodel ffs, her living is based on people thinking she's attractive but bc some people think he beat his ex he can't make statements like that.
The word you're actually looking for is misogynist, but then again maybe not, since nothing you're saying is actually misogynist behavior.
> God, suck fucking children.
So you're saying that I call people assholes to feel that I'm better than them?
Tell me again how that's different from what you just did. Or were you being sarcastic?
Also, I'd like to add that I perceive people as assholes or whatever word you'd like to use, when they do something that harms everyone around them either with complete disregard to logical empathic thinking and the safety of others, or complete lack of brain function in general. Sometimes both.
Also, most of those I perceive as assholes, are generally doing something illegal and dangerous, but are often protected by someone who'll try to find excuses for their misdeeds.
That's why I added the part about understanding, and being able to place yourself in their shoes. But having an understanding of why people act a certain way doesn't mean that you have to agree with them or stand up for them like you just did, or that they are in fact not acting like utter assholes. Because they are.
If you can't see both sides, and only read the "all redditors want to be better than everyone else"-part, well then you might be a part of that exact problem.
Also the word "asshole" is basically universal. In German "Arschloch" has a literal meaning and a slang meaning. The same goes for Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, British (cunt is used in the same way) and so on... Basically it means someone who acts mean and therefore is a jerk towards others. So I guess that answers your question, in case you were looking for an answer and not just stating a point.
>No but said large company tends to do consulting for other large companies which will suggest said policy...
And you that is a large enough sample size to generalize about hiring preferences? Might I suggest a statistics course, or we could stick to the established research...
>I am not your personal researcher.
No, you would have had to do some research for that. You have literally offered nothing but assertions and an ancedote about one company.
>Or because middle class jobs in general are shrinking in volume..
And low skill jobs are rapidly being automated. Self-driving cars are already here and waiting to largely dominate the transportation industry, the largest industry in the US. We can either provide education for our citizens or do nothing as we have massive chunks of our civ become unemployed by no fault of their own.
>Irrelevant, they can pay for themselves like everyone else if the want something beyond what society has established to be the the minimum.
No the minimum was established some decades ago. It was estaished to provide economic growth, and oppertunity. That growtg and oppertunity now lies one step further out.
>Free funding merely makes that minimum go up, makes middle class jobs more difficult to obtain then eventually youll be back here in 30 years saying wahhhh we need free masters level its not faiiiirrr.
You should become familiar with the difference.
the word is actually either "judgment" or "judgement". both are acceptable; the former is the preferred usage in american english whereas the latter is preferred in the UK.
