if i was the lecturer... it would have to be pretty f*Xing bad. People take offence at the slightest. I would need an example, i think... directly racism is relatively easier to act on; gender-related ...eh... put-downs more difficult
Random thought for the day: It's annoying when people take a willingness to be flexible and accommodating as some indicator that you are undeserving of respect and consideration. Just because someone shows a willingness to work with you, does not mean you can walk all over them.
Nope just in general. I'm trying to buy a house... I've very flexible with the time my realtor has to show me things. He's starting to take advantage by rescheduling more often than he should. And... while this is going on....
The heat pump went out in the current house I'm renting. No air or heat. I don't really need either right now. So it's a good time for it to go out and allow some leeway in order for the landlord to get it fixed. However, there again, my flexibility and willingness to accommodate the landlord's schedule as let me without heat or central air for over a week now.
yeah suuuuuuuuuuuuure. Why not spend the money there... afterall, there's no need for universal heathcare or helping the homeless or poverty level Americans.. just find nothing in space. Much more productive use fo billions of dollars. Although the space program is only a small percentage of the budget.
I just can't believe what the politicians think is important at times. While I'm all for imbuing our young people with more ahh and wonder at science and hopefully boosting those career fields, Mars is not the answer if they can't afford a meal or a home or healthcare.
Okay... I'm off to look at houses. Have a great weekend!
