It's still difficult even if you are 18+. I've been turned down at 2 places already, as in I handed in my résumé and never got calls back. Is there something wrong with me that people see that makes them not want to hire me? sad.gif

Current Thoughts:

- Just had lunch. Now eating French vanilla yogurt. Not much taste though.
- I should write some e-mails.
- I feel like I want to go out to dinner with my brother and cousin tonight.
- That probably won't happen.
- I'm so glad I no longer have homework. Other than counterpoint.

No, at least that's not a law. It would be impractical, and potentially immoral if it was. It is against the law to refuse employment because of ethnicity, religion, etcetera, but if a town was almost entirely caucasian and christian in its population, the employers would be screwed, were the ethnicity rule a real standard.

There are some cases in which affirmative action is employed (which is borderline, imo), wherein if two potential (students usually) are interviewed and shown to have the exact same skill level, the position will go by default to the minority of the two, rather than a coin toss.

My Thoughts:

- Yesterday was my little brother's b-day... I gave him a card and 10 bucks...

- And today I finished the book I've been reading for almost three days straight: Eragon. I was so happy, but now I can't wait to get my paws on Eldest, which the secong book in the series...

- I also started another book, entitled Seeker. I've only read a little of it, but so far it doesn't strike me as the best book in the world. I'm going to continue it, but I really hope it gets better as it gets on.

Darn. Well, aren't companies and employers supposed to hire so many people from different ethnic groups?

Not sure. Then again, I'm in Canada.


No, at least that's not a law. It would be impractical, and potentially immoral if it was. It is against the law to refuse employment because of ethnicity, religion, etcetera, but if a town was almost entirely caucasian and christian in its population, the employers would be screwed, were the ethnicity rule a real standard.

There are some cases in which affirmative action is employed (which is borderline, imo), wherein if two potential (students usually) are interviewed and shown to have the exact same skill level, the position will go by default to the minority of the two, rather than a coin toss.

Oh, yes. That was it.
But I'm sure I remember something about it. Maybe it was certain colleges. Bah, I don't remember.

Not all people look to anime to stir up some kind of mental stimulation. Naruto is animes equvilent to a Popcorn movie. not much in plot but decent fights. Also for fangirls there are litraly hundereds of possible Yoai parings, factor in threesomes and it's just crazy. 10 main male characters that I can think of = Yoai fest.

I'd assume the one Boston is in. I know it begins with an M but I don't care.

Ofcourse Oil is going to go. $6 is quite an ammount this soon but it'll go higher. Oil, as we all know, is a finite resource so it's price was never going to go down. Even if we drill up more it'll be used up eventually.

You been keeping up with what's happening in the Middle East? The campaign Israel has launched against Hezbollah in Lebanon is pretty excessive when you consider that all Hezbollah did was kidnap a pair of soldiers. But I don't think Lebanon is the real target. Hezbollah is funded primarily by Iran and Syria, even though they operate out of south Lebanon.
Israel, I believe, is deliberately using excessive force to try to get Iran involved directly - basically, get them to make a strike against Israelis so that they have probable cause to launch a full-scale attack against Tehran. This is something they've wanted to do ever since Iran started rattling the nuclear saber, but haven't had the opportunity to do it because it would be an act of aggression if it isn't provoked. If Israel attacks Iran, the Iranian leadership will go down and take the country's oil production and exportation with it. If those oil fields start to burn, we're gonna get a major oil shock throughout the Western world.

That figure is probably closer to 65% or so.

It's not simply the cutoff of production. If Iran decides to choke the supply, it'll probably mean destroying whatever infrastructure Western oil companies have in place in that country. And on top of that, world oil prices are set by OPEC of which Iran is a key member, and it's well-known that if a member of OPEC is attacked, prices tend to inflate.

How come it is acceptable to spell Skeptical "Sceptical" or vice versa, depending on which way you spell it. I doubt whoever invented the word intended it to be able to be spelled either way dry.gif It was probably some southern vs north arguement how to spell it. The illiterate southerners decided it would be cool to ignore the "sc" followed by an "e" makes an "s" sound. Kind of like how people decided to change Catsup to Ketchup. Booo!

This post has no point to it.

Slash, showers are beautiful things and not to be squandered.. It's one of many things one learns when deprived or them and biking for days and days. I've spent more euros on showers than practically any one other thing, it seems. I hate how all the toilets and are pay toilets and all the showers are pay showers....

Hiyas! I'm in Belgium (and paying for my internet as well as lavatory usage.) My bike trip is lotsa fun. Amsterdam was cool, but it had this sort of reek of pot and tobacco to it. Ick. I thought it was a nice city, though. I like Brugge better. It's cleaner and less overpriced. (it also has lots of yummy chocolate)

So, in paragraph instead of bullet form, those are my thoughts.
The gasoline conversation seems like it could be cut out and moved to a seperate debate thread, but I didn't read much of it and am even somewhat unclear what it's about.
