He's also ignoring one of the fundamental facts about scientific inquiry. That science can only address observable measurable phenomenon within the physical world. Well, not really. It's perfectly within scientific method to observe certain things (with or without the ability to measure them), deve...

No, it's been on most years. Was canned this year after being planned initially. There always seems to be "issues" surrounding exodus. :(

K, so to start with I am an ignorant pig who deserves to rot in ignorance. I saw most of it but could not be bothered with old mates future scenarios (pure speculation) and skipped through some of his more droney bits. My opinion is essentially that I agree with a lot of his interim conclusions but ...

Another way to look at the work hours/value equation is to concentrate instead on the structure of corporations rather than tax law etc. This is getting a bit off topic, but anyway. I currently work for a public company and have worked in the past for many different structures of private companies a...

There's no real point mentioning any role they may appear to play in this as they are just another minor front of the reptilians anyway and anyone who thinks otherwise has clearly been duped.

Ever heard of quality time? Down time? Me time? Free time? You gotta ask yourself, how much time do I have? So, you know, what do you want to do? I think it comes down to where you find your own balance at a particular time in life. For some people, work is their pleasure and leisure and they manag...

In a cruel joke played by the universe, today I started work at 8:30am and finished at 7:30pm. I ate lunch at my desk. I am now absolutely rooted and not in the frame of mind to be thinking about this. Today I don't resent that, but only because I was enthusiastic about what I was working on. That'...

I think (although I could be wrong) that fnarky is referring more to people who work long hours for low pay in areas of low specialisation, particularly repetitive and monotonous work. For example the standard these days for call centre workers is an 8.5-9 hour day with an unpaid half hour lunch br...

For the very specialised engineers/scientists who work with me it means putting in probably 10 years working at least 50 to 60 hours a week following post doctoral research to develop practical skills from a good theoretical base.

^It’s an interesting list. I am not sure that you would not end up creating an even bigger social divide between rich and poor with some of that as an unintended consequence – redistribution of wealth along those lines rarely seems to work as hoped, but anyway. For instance Thatcher quite succes...

I kept up just fine. You're playing with words. What you think it is, is very much what you think it should not be.

Where this country went wrong was in the in humane treatment of the Aboriginal people when they had arrived here, but it was far from an isolated case for the British coming from an empire that held practices that would make many cringe.
