    Uh, if there aren't historical records of the gays, what do you call this?!

    What it looks like is that they're trying to send a message for us to get out of their waters and keep our drones to ourselves, the same as we would do if Iranian ships appeared on our coast or...
  4. Yes. We're not reliant on their oil. Our last...

    Yes. We're not reliant on their oil. Our last involvement with them was to stage the coup that toppled their democratically elected government and caused the domino effect for this in the first...

    That did work out exceptionally well for America. We had minimal involvement comparatively in the war because we were geopolitically sound and didn't have to come in until the USSR, China, France,...

    And it stabilized the region forever and the middle east has been a peaceful, democratic, freedom-loving place ever since. It certainly was not a 3 trillion dollar and counting cost that only further...
  7. Yeah but unlike the rest of the middle east, Iran...

    Yeah but unlike the rest of the middle east, Iran is in a position where they can actually fight back. It'd be a lopsided direct conflict, as any one country against the largest militarized force in...

    I just want to point out that I tried to invade Iran as Fascist Ireland in Hearts of Iron 4 last night and it was a gigantic pain in the nutsack, so we shouldn't go to war. In the middle east. Again....

    I'm sorry. They had to be shut down. It was them or us. We found out what they were planning. Action had to be taken before they went full Skynet.

    Nice stats, nice training, nice race. Keep in mind anyone interested, Halfling is potentially the best small race for monk. They've got all the strengths, being only a hair beneath gnomes on the...

    I spend most of my days during the slow season piping data through ODBC to a SQL database because in 2015 my company thought it was a great idea to install a database written for a car company in the...
  12. I was initially typing out how I would love that,...

    I was initially typing out how I would love that, but the fact is that this is my slow season (even if it isn't particularly slow for me). End of year in September probably means a lot of prep when...
  13. Could be. Lot of "normal" days off stacked...

    Could be. Lot of "normal" days off stacked towards the end of the year. End of the year is also super crunch time for just about any business that sells anything though for that same reason, so...

    I read a statistic saying that something like 50% of workers that do have paid vacation give it up every year, to the tune of 62 billion dollars. Forget exactly where I saw it. Nevermind. Here it is...

    My cousin showed me a clip today where he was on the Key and Peele television program. I find that program funny, so I was happy to see he was involved a little bit.

    1700. It costs no mana. Get to 20 fire ranks so you can use minor steam, then use that, a cast or two of 1700, rinse, repeat. 502's worth experimenting with as a cheap mana option early on depending...

    For positions with large numbers of applicants, absolutely, which is the situation set up by the majority of the larger US studios. Microsoft has a game design college basically in their parking lot....
  18. Which part of what I've said do you find to be...

    Which part of what I've said do you find to be inaccurate? For that matter, what of anything I've said do you find to be inaccurate specifically? I generally cite a great deal of sources.
  19. The ones I've been going through in this thread....

    The ones I've been going through in this thread. Those weren't made up. Microsoft, Gearbox, Thoughtworks, 2K Games. The Sierra example I only know from Sierra employee recollections on youtube, but...

    The tech sector. As laid out in examples here. Or did you mean where it works like normal?
  21. No, that is not how shit works. That is how shit...

    No, that is not how shit works. That is how shit worked in the 1980s and 1990s in the tech sector. That is how shit should work, and does in the vast majority of industries. It doesn't in this one,...
  22. And when it's an industry-wide practice, how...

    And when it's an industry-wide practice, how exactly do you believe change gets enacted? Maybe a group of like-minded skilled workers, getting together for example, and saying "We're not going to...
  23. Microsoft is far from the only tech company that...

    Microsoft is far from the only tech company that takes advantage. I'm only using it as an example because it's the one I laid out before. If you'd like another one off the top of my head, Gearbox has...
  24. No, I'm not acting like that. And yes, there is...

    No, I'm not acting like that. And yes, there is some of that going on, but there's always a balance that needs to be struck in any industry. Coming from New Jersey, I'm generally vehemently...

    One of the reasons Thoughtworks has offices in about six different countries, yes. And in each one they still outsource their work to India and work in the same way.

    Workers wanting fair treatment...
