Topic Royal Nurse Commits Suicide After Prank Radio Call
08 Dec 2012 14:14
To all those who think suicide is the easy way out - go and curl up in a corner.
To all those who are interested in what I have to say here - http://www.simplypsychology.org/hofling-obedience.html This experiment kinda sums up what I think happened to her when she took that call. And from other research like this I believe that all the radio prank calls should be stopped.
I feel sorry for her and her family. I hope her family can get over what has happened.
Topic MERRY CHRISTMAS

The stores here in Canada were rolling out Christmas stuff as soon as Halloween was over. One chain even had to apologize for playing Christmas music too early. So, a bit early, but not too early.
That's rather late compared to the ones here.
Topic where the nerds

If you define a nerd as someone who loves to read, then I am a classic nerd. Once had 5,000 books in my personal library. Have a BA in English, MA in Geography. Classic nerd, and I love pussy as much as anyone. And I know what to do with it, too.
Yes but how many of them have you read?

Nope, Why would anyone want to do that?

If you feel uncomfortable with your Dom/me having more than one sub then tell them. If they understand they won't bring another one into the relationship, if not then it may be time to move on.
As Dom/mes need to respect your needs and if bringing someone else into the relationship will affect you then it's perfectly fine to mention that.

Depends on what porn you both like, as there is a few sites that cater for one type of porn only.

Topic Vegas Employer: Obama Won, So I Fired 22 Employees
08 Nov 2012 14:08
What are your thoughts on this MoonlightSerenity?
He's a business owner, he has to do what he has to do to stay in business. If he has to fire 22 people, then so be it. He is still providing employment for 90 odd others.
Of course there's the very real possibility that he's using it as a plausible excuse, and seemingly good reason to chop out the dead wood...
I think that he could have waited until it was properly enforced and then see what implications it could have on his company before he fired them.
From what I've read so long as they aren't earning over 200k a year then they don't need to pay much, even if they do it's only about 2.8% of the money that gets taxed, which isn't that much. So I don't think even that small amount could be cause to bring down a whole company.
If it could then he needs to think about his actual status on being able to manage a company in the first place.
Topic Vegas Employer: Obama Won, So I Fired 22 Employees
08 Nov 2012 12:36
CBS Las Vegas
A Las Vegas business owner with 114 employees fired 22 workers today, apparently as a direct result of President Obama’s re-election.
“David” (he asked to remain anonymous for obvious reasons) told Host Kevin Wall on 100.5 KXNT that “elections have consequences” and that “at the end of the day, I need to survive.”
“I’ve done my share of educating my employees. I never tell them which way to vote. I believe in the free system we have, I believe in the right to choose who they want to be president, but I did explain as a business owner that I have always put my employees first. I always made sure that when I went without a paycheck that made sure they were paid. And I explained that I always put them first and unfortunately I’m at a point where I’m being forced to have to worry about me and my family now and a business that I built from just me to 114 employees.
“I explained to them a month ago that if Obama gets in office that the regulations for Obamacare are gonna hurt our business, and I’m gonna have to make provisions to make sure I have enough money to cover the payroll taxes, the additional health care I’m gonna have to do, and I explained that to them and I said you do what you feel like in your heart you need to do, but I’m just letting you know as a warning this is things I have to think of as a business owner.
“Well unfortunately, and most of my employees are Hispanic — I’m not gonna go into what kind of company I have, but I have mostly Hispanic employees — well unfortunately we know what happened and I can’t wait around anymore, I have to be proactive. I had to lay off 22 people today to make sure that my business is gonna thrive and I’m gonna be around for years to come. I have to build up that nest egg now for the taxes and regulations that are coming my way. Elections do have consequences, but so do choices. A choice you make every day has consequences and you know what, I’ve always put my employees first, but unfortunately today I have to put me and my family first, and you watch what’s gonna happen. I’m just one guy with 114 employees — well was 114 employees — watch what happens in the next six months. The Dow alone lost 314 points today. There’s a tsunami coming and if you didn’t think this election had consequences, just wait.”
What is your reaction to this news? Do you think the owner was right in doing this or was it either legally or morally wrong?

It is. I never saw the end of it though I might try and see if I can watch it again as it was a good film.
(The trailer was correct in saying that the stowaway is huggable, and so hilarious)

I've been looking into pet play more and more recently and I've been wondering what people think of pet play and pets in general.
I'm also wondering, for those pets out there - how do you show your pet side?
