Wait. What? Plants have feelings?? Shocked Shocked Shocked


Are you concerned? Are you --- ahem... how can I put this delicately? --- a plant molester?

The question is: does one need a brain to feel pain?

Well I guess I am then, and a murderer.
Actually really interesting article, always amazed by how plants adapt. Still going to eat them though.

People....

Many hours spent by myself and others, running the netball club, developing policies and guidelines on team grading and allocation, updating the constitution, etc. and people still complain.

Parents so wrapped up in the own little worlds, that they cannot see the big picture. And kids lives so stage managed that they and their parents can't deal with thought that they may not be in a winning team or they may have to play with someone other than their best friend (who could ditch them at any moment anyway such is the fickleness of girls).
Or the others at the other end of the spectrum who can't understand why sport is competitive - why can't we all be nice and just play for fun?

And today someone suggested that we needed to come up with a non-gender specific uniform. Not that they would have the time to help out with any work involved in coming up with a suitable option because of course they were 'busy'.

FMD. People just need to pull their heads in and get on with things.

^itís worth reading the article very closely. Note the repeated implication that this hideous crime is somehow the particular responsibility of the NT government, rather than the individual.

I am pretty certain we will find that the man who did this was heavily under the influence of one or other drugs at the time. Itís not the act of a normal mind.

I've started selectively applying for jobs.

First HR job I applied for, I'm overqualified for and could do in my sleep (which was the general idea) and didn't even get an interview. Confused Mad

May just have to put the mask back on, go for some jobs that suit my resume and experience and hope I can still pretend to care.

If you get a cushy HR manager job in a big hospital or nursing home and a Finance manager position becomes available then let me know. The small country hospital my partner works at and is about to go on maternity leave from is not exactly doing so well.

White males over 50 donít tick the ďequality and diversityĒ (sic) boxes, so itís hard. Before the anti-discrimination acts, discrimination on grounds of gender or colour was much lower. Those who convince themselves that their bad instincts are doing good are capable of great injustice.

Keep applying. Discrimination is a vile thing, but it can be overcome by sheer persistence.

Itís basically hard for anyone over 50, not just white males. Itís called ageism

Yeah, I'd considered that. The only place it doesn't apply is in Snr management roles and I really don't want to do that, but I may have to.

I was sent to WISE emplpyment and they basically told me I was not in a target group. At my 6 monthly interview they asked me for a list of people I had tried to get employment with. I only had 6 weeks to go before I could access super. So I gave them a list and I did mention I maight be getting an opening in Ibdonesia. Answer, well if you get that position let us know as we helped you faciltate that position. My answer. "I don't think so"

Word of mouth will be how you get something at our age.

WTF! I donít care what his problem is was, will be, I agree with Stui, cut it off! Slowly. Sure, drastic changes and education are needed, but there is still a thing called personal responsibility.

Why do you think pornography is a factor? Nearly every white Australian male beyond puberty has willingly encountered pornography on the internet, many most on a regular basis. Where did this idea come from that Aboriginal people somehow canít handle it?

Itís correct to see acts like this as a partial result of social dysfunction (although we need to be careful to avoid creating a racist dichotomy in which only non-Aboriginal peopleís crimes are caused by personal failings and Aboriginal peopleís crimes stem from social dysfunction.) Something has gone badly wrong in the mind of a person for them to want to do something like this and follow through with it. The only useful response is to work on fixing that, whether it be on an individual or macro scale. If you donít care about the problem, then youíre not meaningfully engaging with it.

Is there solid evidence for this claim? Has nearly every white Australian male beyond puberty even had internet access?
