RE: Ranting corner
The United States has ratified two... TWO of the eight fundamental conventions of international labor standards.

Just by a count of conventions, that puts the USA equal to Myanmar and Brunei, and a little better than Tuvalu, Palau, and the Marshall Islands (which is mostly a tax haven anyway).

It leaves us worse in labor protection than 179 other countries. I knew the working class has it bad here, but damn... our labor standards are even worse than our education performance. Maybe there's a connection.

Mmmm Hmmm, as oppose to you. If only one of you would donate 25 cents a day DLJ could have a bowl of rice to fill his belly each day. Smartass

And for an additional 10 cents he could have a local girl to warm his belly.

I'm pretty sure it's the other way around, him warming her belly.

RE: Ranting corner
So,i got my reportcard a few days ago,and i scored the 3th semester really low. Partly because i could afford to score low and the other part because i spend too much time on the net. So,yesterday,i was argueing with my padre,and out of the blue,he links me not praying to my bad grades! I explained to him why i got those low grades,but ke keeps on insisting that i got those low grades because i didnt pray anymore! Totaly unsupported claim. I didnt believe in god for almost 2 years ago,i still got those high grades! That was my boring rant

I don't really like going outside.
It's too damn "peopley" out there....

Loved it.

I just showed this to my Vietnamese flatmates.

I asked them if that girl was their grandmother.

They were shocked.

They thought 15 dorrar was too beaucoup too.

Shit on a shit sandwich!

My Central Air/Heating unit just blew it's compressor...

Of course they stopped making the compressor because in 2010 they made old school freon parts illegal to manufacture.

So now I either have to ebay an old compressor and pay $1200 to get installed or buy a whole new $3800 AC unit.

...and I'm dizzy tired and the website I'm working on just blew up.

I'm sorry. We replaced our heater and a/c a couple years ago now. Replacing the roof (our house is rather large with lots high and low points, ironically was cheaper.
