    Is he able, but not willing?
    Then he is malevolent.
    Is he both able and willing?

    Is he neither able nor willing?
    Then why call him God?
    Food for thought for a member of the unwashed like myself.

    In other news, I was riding along today, happily stewing away in my old helmet.

    Had a thought pop into my head [had plenny of room as had no spatial awareness gobbling up valuable brain cells].

    Was the human evolution of our legal system designed primarily to protect those who operate outside of it?
    Sventek, being a predominantly lazy fuck can you please purchase some for me, bring me the stuff, create something I want after you think of it for me then clean my house, wash my car, dog, bike breathe for me.

        I've met dodgy twats like him, never done a days work ( OK allegedly worked seven days straight once) in his life yet always has money for a pint or two and somehow supports a multitude of kids.
        I'm doin it wrong.

        • So our office christmas do was supposed to be yesterday arvo, only it wasn't, the one for our company was shitcanned - worldwide, also our part of the group was not invited to any other do the company put on here or the one that went ahead in Brisbane which they had at a very schmick hotel last weekend. Even the sister company that share our building were allowed to have theirs, their boss is class all the way, said that we could come out with them, but we declined, as we didn't want to get them in the shit for spending too much money, as there are 6 of us total in the building it would be pretty obvious on the bill that there were more people present than what the bill should have been.

          The bit that galls me the most is that in the most recent group newsletter we got a very nice, glowing even, write up about how well our company is doing, that we are leading the way yadayadayada. Obviously with the market downturn corporate have taken a hit across the board, which instigated a global cost cutting drive, most of which has been staff, people with 19/20+ years of experience are being let go, our ME ops have had a massive cut in personnel, far east have already taken a kick in the nuts, rumour has it they're going to get another one, UK have been shredded and North America are nexy - keep in mind that is just our company, there are something like 9 other sister firms in the division, plus all the other divisions

          So do I have any loyalty left to our corporate overlords - fuck no

          Am I going to be looking for work in the new year? - fuck yeah

            so, this morning i go and get some kk doughnuts on the way in

            well, um, overpriced? very average ?

            it must be the hype , i wasn't brain washed enough
            I saw a couple of jerks at domestic arrivals last Sunday getting off the plane with big boxs of Krispy Kremes like everyone used(?) to do.

            I guessed they were pretty happy with themselves cause they were going to be the life of the party with their gift of exotic doughnuts you can't get in Perth...

              Yup my work cries poor all the time but a slip up of financials showed they're sitting very pretty. Our team was going to go out for Xmas lunch but it got knocked on the head by the CEO citing we are below budget figures... well, the Board still managed to go out for lunch the week before, the CEO still managed to go to a $2K luncheon etc. Maybe they need to evaluate if their budget figures are actually achievable rather than some fictional figure they hope to achieve in order to line their shareholder pockets further...

                My sentiments exactly, expect everything and give nothing in return and then be a complete hypocrite to top it off

                  Yep take take take.. So what's happened is people have stopped giving and no longer work the long hours they used to... CEO gets shitty cos people aren't working long hours - for what? No reward... he patrols the orrifice at 5:05PM and 5:35PM to see who's still at work. 3 moar work days to go!

                    New Years Resolution is to delete it.
                    It has some purpose. Mistake I made was friending some people in an effort to get some balance in opinion rather than just what I would like to hear/read etc....but there are some really bitter people out there (no, NOT realists - just damaged and bitter or so fundamentally political that it become caricature)

                    Just cull the friends list, make it private, then go from there.

                      I'm horrified by some of the thing I see posted on Facebook. Where did the compassion go. So much hatred.

                        Same here, 3 to go, taking some leave over the break as well, 43 days in the bank not counting long service or sick leave, will also be taking some around the time of Missus V's exams/assignments due in next semester and anything else that takes my interest.

                                Looking after my pregnant sick wife whilst feeding the 21 month old in his high hair when I had to reach for his little red toy bucket and spew into it.

                                Then managed to slop the contents on the way to the bathroom.

                                I'm just glad that on Thursday I waited a few minutes as I felt a bit off. If I'd left as usual there would have been a man in shit filled trousers standing on the side of the road with vomit spewing from his helmet.
