I'm pretty sure Ham single handedly proved that evolution is real from both sides. Bear in mind, while animals have the same type, they've evolved into different breeds. This is even showed through the Bible, including the fact that all the races of the world are descended from one family, by their logic. This being said, there's no fucking way they can dispute evolution, when their own fucking book backs it up
#81 - fragman (02/06/2014) [-]
Disputing evolution wasn't even part of the discussion.
The topic was the idea of creationism and the age of the world.

And based on the "orchard of life" or whatever the fuck they call it it's pretty obvious to me that they accept evolution at least to some extent.

( ps my thoughts on this whole subject are based off north america to which you wage chart up there does not hold true at 8 dollars an at 178 hours a week your grossing 1424 here in the states before tax. so i am not sure where your at but i would love to have 3 grand a month ) yes i konw there are states with higher min wages then that buy federal minimum wage for covered nonexempt employees is $7.25 per hour and most of the stats with higher have higher costs of living

i agree minimum wage is not a perfect answer. but its the system we have its one of the levers we have to pull. other wise your hoping for the kindness of others. instead of letting people do a job and at least pretend to have a say in there own future.

most jobs are either hard work physically or mentally. the clerk( to be fair i dont know what your refereeing here but i am guessing its an accountant of some kind IE desk job ) compared to the guy stacking box hes doing less physical work almost always.

i used privately financed health care as a benchmark of why things that we keep getting told need fixed with more government are all solvable if people would just stop hording more money then they can ever spend.
#105 - fragman (02/06/2014) [-]
If you factor in our higher tax rates and cost of living it's pretty much the same thing, the 3k a month aren't really enough to live either.

People do have a say in their future, they do so equally without some arbitrary definition of what one hour of someone being half-useful at best is worth. If you choose to undergo proper education instead of having swag, the chances of you working for "minimum wage" at age 25 are pretty slim, I can't imagine it being any different in the US. And no, having an art degree doesn't count.

Regarding hard work we have something similar over here that pisses me the fuck off. Construction workers have a minimum wage of 5700 USD monthly. Due to union and shit. I mean what the fuck. Sure, it's hard on your body, but as you said, it's not harder on the body than a job as an IT engineer is on the mind. There is usually a balance of the two which applies for most jobs.
However, the reward of having less years of full income, later start and thus less years of increasing income progress (e.g. 4 years education) has to be rewarded properly.

Of course I agree with the last point, and I actually thought of a concept that could make this work to some extent, except you won't be able to make a law for that because lobbyism is too strong... Basically if you build a billion dollar empire during your lifetime I don't see why you shouldn't be entitled to have that money. However, why the fuck should your good-for-nothing kids inherit that shit?
If you'd set an inheritance cap of let's say 5 million (which is still enough to never work a day in your life if you're halfway smart) and tax the rest at 100%, you could easily fund public healthcare as well as education (combined with the existing tax rates on income and property) on a reasonable standard which then would be free for everyone, thus creating equal opportunity.

And yeah, I see how minimum wage may seem like a good idea, but I predict that it will backfire within less than 3 generations.

so instead of paying people so they can afford things like health care. we are forced into the shittist legislation in years IE obamacare where we still end up footing the fucking billl for CEOs to make 10 million instead of 2 million
#75 - fragman (02/06/2014) [-]
using flawed concepts like privately financed health care as an argument for another flawed concept. great job.
noone should have to be able to "afford" health care.

The reason why a minimum wage is stupid can be explained quite simply.
Take my country for example with simple currency conversion to USD:
Basis of all calculations is a full time job averaging at about 178 hours a month.
The average untrained employee at a very low level job currently makes about 3100 USD monthly.
The average clerk after a 3 year apprenticeship makes about 4430 USD a month on the first job after his apprenticeship, maybe up to 4700.
For IT engineers it's a 4 year educational process and the usual wage without real job experience after that is around 5000-5500 ISD.

Now, this seems like a reasonable difference in pay regarding the requirements on both education and skill.
Currently we have an alarming amount of people demanding a minimum wage of 4400 USD monthly for any full time job. Do you really expect that the clerk will be satisfied with his 4.4k after undergoing a 3 year education when someone who hasn't learned any skills whatsoever gets paid the same amount for just stacking up stuff at a warehouse?
They wouldn't, and for good reason too. So this would lead to a higher wage demand from clerks. And the circle begins.

Because once you declare a minimum wage that enables anyone to sustain their life with any job whatsoever you have two options: either you create the inflation mentioned before or you send the message that education is basically worthless.
And just as an inb4: the whole "capitalism is bad" discussion is also moot, since that's not the point. We have it, so we have to deal with it.

The current situation isn't good, I agree with you on that one, but minimum wage is not a solution, just a temporary workaround that will make the problem worse in the long run.

#27 - fragman (02/05/2014) [-]
In Legend of Zelda, you can acquire a Goron (a humanoid, rock-eating race living in the mountains) made tunic while the Goron themselves don't wear clothes at all.
The tailoring style matches the Kokiri clothing, a race also known as "children of the forest" who don't mature physically like humans, thus keeping their child-like size and appearance.

In Ocarina of Time you start out as a child and then reach adulthood upon acquiring the Master Sword from the Temple of Time. So you are now an adult Kokiri, something that otherwise doesn't exist. And when visiting the Goron, you can buy the tunic shown in the content from their store or receive it as a gift from a Goron. So in essence they have made clothing which they don't wear and are designed for people that don't exist.

Hope this clears it up, my Zelda knowledge is a bit rusty.

I decided to do an EZ setup
www.mediafire.com/?b5qdg8cez3563db

I wasn't able to finish it in time before the post was out of its 24 hour slot, but it has a readme with some instructions so you don't have to keep repeating yourself

What do you think?
User avatar #26 - venumb (06/18/2012) [-]
Is it alright if I take what you have so far and edit it and repost the results as long as I mention your name? I plan on adding GUI and other features other than Skipper. The auto thumb/thumb down will probably be in there too.

Really good work on the idea :)
#27 to #26 - fragman (06/18/2012) [-]
I really wouldn't recommend the thumb down feature, there is a vote limit for a certain timespan which could have negative impact on functionality and would also motivate people to post their content outside the channel.
But expanding it in general, sure.
User avatar #28 to #27 - venumb (06/18/2012) [-]
I guess your right. I'll leave the thumbing out of the expanded release. I have other ideas that I'm am way more motivated on accomplishing anyway.

Ah I truly doubt that. This was a huge step forward for FJ today, it'll be remembered for a while. And you could upload a Firefox guide and a Chrome guide for newbies in the following days.

#16 to #15 - fragman (06/18/2012) [-]

Depends on your browser. You might want to check out this if you're using chrome:
stackoverflow [DOT] com/questions/5258989/manually-adding-a-userscript-to-google-chrome
#17 to #16 - fragman (06/18/2012) [-]
rest should be in the content description.
User avatar #18 to #17 - natedimes (06/18/2012) [-]
If you're referring to adding the channel skipper, don't worry about that it installed automatically :). I was just wondering about when you said that you could edit the source code so it only skips certain channels.
#19 to #18 - fragman (06/18/2012) [-]
actually that's what I meant...
you'll need to find where the script is stored in order to edit it. that should be explained in the description pretty much, on the stackoverflow site you'll find the various user-datadir defaults for chrome.
then edit the file script.js in notepad++ or something like that

depends on your browser. if you're using firefox with greasemonkey, you can simply create a new user script (after you've defined a default userscript editor, e.g. notepad++) and paste the source code. then edit the array defined in line 9 to be filled with all the channels you'd like skipped, like this:
var skipit = new Array("channel1", "channel2", "channel3");

this is a little ugly, but I don't know of any better way at this moment.
you'll find the script in C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions\xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx\1_0\script.js
while "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" is a random string. I don't know how that's generated but if it's based on the script source code it should be "camaaaeklepkjffjiookkjabipiidofl".
In this folder there are two files, manifest.json and script.js (which is the one you can edit using any text editor and just save it)
