    I actually have. It was my zelda wind waker pre order bonus. You guys are conflating me saying individual choice when it's the other's choice to mug. Don't get a bad degree in college if you want to pay off debt (or just don't go at all).

    that we find ourselves in the exact same social and economic climate we did then? like, take a pick of things that will cause the next crash, could be the housing bubble, could be student debt, could be the pandemic that's still happening.

    People that spent more time on this forum in the last decade than IRL are telling other forum posters to go outside. This is one of the best threads EVER.

    Careful with those jumps in logic, one more and you'll fall off the Earth.

    Or you can change your recruiting and intern programs to widen out their reach and get a different mix of candidates. You can still hire the best but with a wider, more diverse—more women, more persons of color—group of applicants and interns "the best" at the end of that process may happen to be a woman or person of color instead of a white guy. If your pool of candidates is heavily weighted towards white males then that's what you're going to get. The point here is more opportunity, not quotas. This is not complicated and people that cannot understand this are not trying.

    You can be careful and still be caught in the shit: for example, getting cancer on USA. Good luck with the private medical insurance.
    Do people with cancer are guilty of being ill?

    Ok so, when you connect this to the stuff that some of them have done it's obviously bad.

    But on the other hand it's a private chat. Everyone has talked about fucking someone in a private chat. Just cause Dave said he's gathering "hot chixx" doesn't make him bad unless he actually went and harassed someone.

    Same goes for Jesse McRee. Unless I missed something then he hasn't done anything. And the people who argue on twitter about renaming the OW character are idiots.

    I'm a lot more pragmatic than you it seems. And i'm hardly complaining. Capitalism can use some tweaks here and there, but life is good

    In-game Changes. We have heard the input from employee and player communities that some of our in-game content is inappropriate. We are removing that content.

    would be interesting to know what exactly are those in-game content that are inappropriate. i would assume some of those are the name of certain npc's but what are the rest ?

    There's a problem with what you say:
    - The market suddenly needs samophlange engineers.
    - Johny, that he though "hey, the market really needs samophlange engineers! I'm gonna be a samphlange engineer so I can have lots of mony"
    - Johny spends 5 years of his live (and a lot of money) on Samophlange Institute of Technology, and now he is a samophlange engineer!
    - Too bad that the need of samophlange engineers was already covered 1 year ago and now he has no job expectation. I guess he should have studied to be discombobulator engineer. What an idiot!

    Bill Cosby was found guilty of drugging and sexually assaulting women, many of which claimed he raped them. The charges that were pursued were the ones easier to prove in a court of law, risking no conviction if they try and push rape charges, with there totaling around 60 accusers who are victims of rape and sexual assault (facilitated by Cosby drugging them). Anyone who believes that Bill Cosby is not a rapist at this point is an idiot.
    Sylvanas didn't even win the popular vote, she was elected by an indirect election of representatives. #NotMyWarchief

    then give me the context and stop acting like whatever you say is right inherently. give me links to prove i took something out of context.

    -.- what?
    they do know that 83% of usa population is white, that means that the overwhelming majority of work force at ANY american company should be white, and since males tend to work more than females, i bet it should also be mostly male
    ok don't shove sexuality, but seriously are they blaming a company for being majority white, in a majority white country? there are entire companies in india with pure non-white force, heck i bet most companies in mexico are hispanic, so are they also racists or for FUCK sake normal that the fucking majority race of ur country, dominate any company they work at!?
    The beginning of wisdom is the statement 'I do not know.' The person who cannot make that statement is one who will never learn anything. And I have prided myself on my ability to learn

    The "humble" ma and pa store is only that because they fucked up somewhere either not getting enough customers to go full corporation or just failed at business as a whole. The "humble" ma and pa store are still out there to screw every coin they can from the customer, they still want all the money. That's capitalism, if you say otherwise then you're a fucking fool.

    No business is your friend, no business is made to be nice to you. EVERY FUCKING BUSINESS is there to make money, make more money. None are going to say no when the opportunity to get even more money comes along.

    Remember when NBA players tried to boycott a game in the bubble? The league postponed the game 2 days and the world moved on like nothing happened. Same thing here, by sanctioning the walkout it takes away the sacrifice so in the end nothing changes.
