This argument is maintainable right up to the point where the boss gets a 32% increase, and apparently that's fine?

Now, after getting loaded by right-wing whack-jobs by the Trump regime, the anti-gun zealots might as well give up for a bit. It's a completely lost cause, as is the abortion debate. All that energy and angst would be far better spent trying to convince people to stop voting Republican.
In principle I agree with you. However, by drawing attention to these kinds of rulings, I do wonder if some of the thinking is that while accepting that it is a lost cause currently, it may change the minds of more moderate republican voters to see what is being done in their name and encourage them to reconsider?
Maybe just wishful thinking.
Pascal Monett: And what has Elon Musk ever done for us?!
Pascal Monett: What?
Pascal Monett: Oh. Yeah, yeah. He did give us that. Uh, that's true. Yeah.
COMMANDO #3: And Tesla.
LORETTA: Oh, yeah, Tesla, Pascal. Remember what electric cars used to be like?
Pascal Monett: Yeah. All right. I'll grant you PayPal and Tesla are two things that Elon Musk has done.
MATTHIAS: And SpaceX.
Pascal Monett: Well, yeah. Obviously SpaceX. I mean, SpaceX goes without saying, don't they? But apart from PayPal, Tesla, and SpaceX--
COMMANDO #2: StarLink!
Pascal Monett: Yeah, yeah. All right. Fair enough.
COMMANDO #1: And he proved you can call someone a peado and get away with it.
COMMANDOS: Oh, yes. Yeah...
FRANCIS: Yeah. Yeah, that's something we'd really miss, Pascal, if Elon Musk left.
Pascal Monett: All right, but apart from PayPal, Tesla, SpaceX, OpenAI, SolarCity, StarLink and the ability to call someone a peado and get away with it, what has Elon Musk ever done for us?
XERXES: He does have a buttload of cash, Pascal.
Pascal Monett: Shut up!
That kind of double-speak is all over silicone valley to be fair. This morning I saw a company describing themselves as "an established start-up". My brain actively shut down at that point as it was trying to equate the two polar opposite terms "start-up" and "established" and clearly felt I needed to be protected from this feedback loop.
You don't have to track if they were "on a break".
I worry about the implication that Friends has become the bastion of plot development and story progression to which all else can only aspire.
But then I didn't get Seinfeld either, I was more of a Frasier aficionado.
We bought an Epsom EcoTank printer before lock down. Myself and my wife both working from home as well as two kids home schooling all printing pretty much every day, and we are still not through the ink which was supplied with it for colour, and we've only used half of one new bottle (plus supplied ink) of the black.
Oh, and the bottles only cost £10 each, or £30 for all four colours. It's never acted up significantly, certainly never blocked up, the only thing it's needed occasionally is a print head alignment.
Of course YMMV.
I'll just leave this here:
"Under normal circumstances I'd say I told you so. But, as I have told you so with such vehemence and frequency already the phrase has lost all meaning. Therefore, I will be replacing it with the phrase, I have informed you thusly"
I have to say I'm somewhat unclear as to why he felt the need to keep a copy of the exposed data once it was apparent they'd fixed the issue? After all this seems to have been the only problem with the process and where everything else came from.
Not taking sides, I'm just hoping someone can clear this up for me.
I'm going to get in here now and say that the current board of Nominet should be described as "A bunch of mindless jerks who'll be the second against the wall after the Marketing Department of the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation when the revolution comes."
Now, where's that rift in the time-space continuum?
They are manipulating the price by not selling stock when the hedge funds that shorted it all need to buy
Supply and demand, surely? You want it, I have it, I can make you pay through the nose for it if I want to, especially if I know you've put yourself in a very risky position to do so. The American Capitalist Dream™.
