  • Still... me thinks I still wanna flip off (evertime) the checkout voice that thinks its smarter than us humans who ACTUALLY already did "put the item in the basket before continuing to scan." 😖

  • This.. so indicative, so telltale of the signs surrounding unchecked levels of mental illness that can easily run amock in the brains of the most SEEMINGLY ambitious & intelligent people.

    Whether its Borderline Personality, functioning Aspergers or deeper aspects of Sociopathic & dissociative traits..

    This.. so indicative, so telltale of the signs surrounding unchecked levels of mental illness that can easily run amock in the brains of the most SEEMINGLY ambitious & intelligent people.

    Whether its Borderline Personality, functioning Aspergers or deeper aspects of Sociopathic & dissociative traits... In the end, thank god, the "crazy ones" (RIP Steve Jobs) don't always turn into the Holmes of this country's entrepreneurial elite.

    [Excerpt from above article]:

    "Yet through all of this, former employees of the company have told me, Holmes had a bizarre way of acting like nothing was wrong. Even more peculiarly, she appeared happy. 'The company is falling apart, there are countless indictments piling up, employees are leaving in droves, and Elizabeth is just weirdly chipper,' a former senior executive told me."

  • Damn, why does this headline remind me of the Socialist recent Shock 'n Awe campaign against Amazon - i.e., where in NYC, they whined and complained until Amazon basically said:

    "F*ck it - you don't want to give up Tax Credits that could bring in over 25,000 well-paying jobs to the city? (with an estimated

    Damn, why does this headline remind me of the Socialist recent Shock 'n Awe campaign against Amazon - i.e., where in NYC, they whined and complained until Amazon basically said:

    "F*ck it - you don't want to give up Tax Credits that could bring in over 25,000 well-paying jobs to the city? (with an estimated $10+ billion in tax revenue)... okay, we'll take our value, our offer, to a an Opportunity Zone in a state that kinda sorta gets the notion of giving up pennies to receive dollars."

    The redistribution of wealth mindset in this country is, sadly, taking on a very sadistic form of growth.

    "Here’s the truth, brothers and sisters, there’s plenty of money in the world. Plenty of money in this city… It’s just in the wrong hands!”

  • In 2019, there is more near-insta opportunities than ever before (for everyone; not just wet-behind-the-ears younger jobbers).

    Yet, here we have a publisher wanting a journalist to ANAL-lyze another twisted aspect of the "Millennial minds" - which, now, apparently has much to do with take-care-of-me

    In 2019, there is more near-insta opportunities than ever before (for everyone; not just wet-behind-the-ears younger jobbers).

    Yet, here we have a publisher wanting a journalist to ANAL-lyze another twisted aspect of the "Millennial minds" - which, now, apparently has much to do with take-care-of-me conditioning and/or not having had the correct upbringing / values taught around self-reliance, as well as what it means to strive (be rewarded for) a HAND-UP (as needed) versus expecting (demanding) a HAND-OUT?

    As soon as the author tied in 'Wealth Inequality' to the arguments, I tuned out.

    What I find very unrealized (especially in the brains of many Millennial-thinking type) is this raw reality of life:

    Financial wealth, the measurement of it against anybody else, is supposed to be unequal, just by the very nature of how we humans aren’t autobots.

    In other words, we’re not robotic entities each producing the same daily effort, thereby resulting in the same output.

  • I'm on the fence about this one. As some mistakes, acted out by a soul who is reconcile and self-growth oriented, should REFINE (not permanently define) a man (and woman).

    There are many programs available to inmates that give them an opportunity to prove they're this - i.e., that they are keenly interested

    I'm on the fence about this one. As some mistakes, acted out by a soul who is reconcile and self-growth oriented, should REFINE (not permanently define) a man (and woman).

    There are many programs available to inmates that give them an opportunity to prove they're this - i.e., that they are keenly interested in CHANGE within so they can be a valuable participants in a society that believes in "second chances."

    On the other side of the fence is the character of the institutionalized criminal - this person can't (or won't) for whatever reason(s) change for the better.

    This mindset, to me, is simply about NOT caring to do so. Its these types that shouldn't fall into the mix of any MAXIMUM sentencing grid.

    Then again, some people who engaged in a criminal act fell into a mandatory MINIMUM sentencing structure that isn't commensurate with the crime itself.

    I know several inmates who did way more time they their "crime" warranted (some of it flirting on the grey area of what is / isn't acceptable as one).

    In short, if there ever was a case "for CONTEXT matters here," it's in "the case for for capping all prison sentences at 20 years."

    No, not ALL. But, yes, mostly some.

  • Eh... why ask such a innocuous, moot, and 'you-already-know-the-answer' question.

    Gesssh.... the thing Millennials anal-ze these day. 🙃

    Answer: 'Cause it ain't foundationally "cheating," when its girl-on-girl, Mr. Biology. 😉

  • "Space"? 🚀

    Hmm... think I'll just be content going there vicariously though Interstellar's Cooper (McConaughey). 👊
