Probably when it is directed towards professors, especially in the sciences. You have to have 'been there, done that' to get a tenure position at university. ...

re: Best way to set aside money for children - Volvagia
My godfather got it for me. Lamented that he didn't just invest the money ever since. Cashed it out and put it in a Roth as soon as I could. ...

re: Teen accidentally kills himself while taking selfie with dad's gun - Volvagia
Nope. You don't. But you didn't have to take the time to express the disdain you did either. To do one but not the other makes you a cowardly pussy at best. Come on, if you are going to that vocal about your conclusion, share with the class your half baked, bullshite, semantics based reas...

re: Jim Halpert cast as Jack Ryan in new Amazon series - Volvagia
Am I the only one that wished that Shadow Recruit hadn't completely flopped and served as a launching point? It definitely seemed to capture the essence of Jack Ryan well IMO, not as the watered down Bond they tried to make the character a couple of times....

re: how should a company compensate an hourly employee for out of state training - Volvagia
You are an exception to that generalization. Airline related, correct? Plus, travel high jobs also tend to offer higher compensation to make up for the factors you just said. ...

re: how should a company compensate an hourly employee for out of state training - Volvagia
I am going through a similar thing in the near future. Company will pay 8 hours per day at event, plus time spent traveling, plus all expenses paid up front by them. Its a typically a huge growth opportunity, a tangible sign that that company is investing in you, and basically a working vaca...

re: America's oil industry is 'dead in the water' - Volvagia
[quote]Sure it is, what does that have to do with it? [/quote] The whole crying about domestic vs foreign oil is the biggest load of crap in the current climate. It's just oil. Supply and demand names a price, and some reserves aren't profitable at that price. I think you would be surprised...

[quote]Why are you celebrating the return to the days of dependence of foreign oil? Do you realize what will happen when demand exceeds the reduced supply once provided by domestic firms? [/quote] Do you? Oil is a fungible commodity. ...

re: Accepting a job that you honestly feel under qualified for - Volvagia
[quote]You don't feel you deserve it, but that doesn't matter because they feel you deserve it and are a good fit. [/quote] Or they are shitty managers who don't really care, who think their underlings are replaceable cogs that anyone can do and don't really understand what it takes to do the d...

re: SJW's shot down by comic - Volvagia
WBC's sole ideology and agenda isn't to further a perceived cause, it is to be as delibrately and publically offensive as possible to attempt to give them ammo to sue. They are on their own chart of fricked up. ...

re: 47% of Americans couldn't scrape $400 for an emergency - Volvagia
That's the kind of stuff I'm talking about. And I should have elaborated that I was mostly speaking of American cultural mores. If you want to speak globally it probably started well over a thousand years. But in America the story was a country of self starters and opportunity. Not tha...

[quote]Try 200 years. [/quote] I don't think class warfare has been going on that long. At least not like this, where the goalposts being if you can build a life of comfort off of your own work without needing regular assistance then you are "rich". That seems to be a rather new perspectiv...

re: 47% of Americans couldn't scrape $400 for an emergency - Volvagia
The war for public opinion on it is starting already. In the past 5 years I have seen a progressive (pun intended) ramp up against 401k The phrase "failed experiment" is becoming rampant. Two points keep emerging: 1). It's so difficult and expensive to self manage, and mistakes can...

re: Question for Tesla model S owners on the OT - Volvagia
