    comparing 30 year olds today to those entering the workforce during/after the great depression is a bit nonsensical

    all we would need to compare them is another global war and the meteoric rise of a new global imperialist superpower

    good thing I wasn't comparing 30 year olds today to those entering the workforce during after the great depression then

    i mean is that not literally the question you asked?

    chanus no I was attempting to understand the relative impact. So comparing those entering the workforce after the great depression to those immediately before/after would give some insight into the loss of earnings on 30 year olds today when compared with their peers ~5 years older/younger. It seems a reasonable approach to me.

    you might need to go more granular to get a really useful comparison, like specifically look at earnings potential that was forecasted before 1937 or something

    world war II and the rise of America as a global superpower (and the addition of women to the workforce and major technological advances we can't even compare to today, such as the washing machine) are far greater factors in how things turned out for that generation

    so really i don't know that the comparison is really anything other than an interesting data point as to what might have been maybe?

    are you saying ww2 and the rise of America as a global superpower only affected those entering the workforce during the great depression and not those that entered 5 years before or 5 years after?

    Pax is still fun even if the con isn't as fun

    and I still like the Con


    The indie booths are cool

    Also sometimes Richard Garriot is just at his booth talking to people like a coked out werewolf.

    But Pax is the only time I get to hang out with anyone I actually consider friends and well

    I'd pay a lot more a day for that than I already do

    so

    there I guess

    matt it sounds like the main problem here was deciding to go to that party

    eh, it wasn't the worst

    but I do genuinely like the wife in that couple, she's a former co-worker and was the person I am actually friends with. Her husband I don't really care for and tbh I hadn't even met face to face before the party, dude's just sorta talked at me before on Facebook previously.

    they're not bad people, they're just dorks and he's just a particularly irritating brand of dork who is aggressively Gen X in his sensibilities about the whole subject and it just gets tiresome to deal with

    we went because we were 2 of 15 people invited and at that point literally nobody had confirmed going and my wife felt really bad for them and we had no plans that night anyway and when there's only 15 people invited it's hard to ghost someone, it's not like when there's 50 people invited and nobody notices you didn't respond

    so we did it to be... polite?

    and it wasn't god awful, they were nice people and they had very cute pet birds, i just find the dude irritating and kind of a stereotype dingus and it was sad to see how much effort they put into it for like, only two guests who were there for like i think two or three hours?

    Oh em gee. Must you beat this guy down more? You don't mesh with him and you think he's sad and the party was sad. End of story.

    reading an article about miranda rights vs canadian interrogation/arrest procedures and this is the only comment
    It isn't just Miranda rights we don't have - WE DON'T HAVE ANY RIGHTS. The Charter of Rights and Freedoms - along with the Constitution Act and other items - was rejected when we said NO to the Charlottetown Accord. Most laws rejected in this manner are simply passed in house, as these were. So, technically, it IS law. But go back further - to December of 1931 - the Statute of Westminster - which REQUIRES the INDEPENDENT SOVEREIGN PROVINCES to come together and form a CONFEDERATION, which has not been done. Furthermore, it also requires the Government of Canada to seek the approval of the people. The first and only attempt at this failed with the rejection of the Charlottetown Accord. So the approval to be a "nation" was rejected. Therefore, as Canada does not exist legally (except as a corporation), the Constitution Act and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms don't either. We have no rights.

    amazing

    It's a little excessive to be concerned about your adult partner, but I DO marvel at people like my brother who have a child and have to think about what happens after their death all the time!

    Also my mom keeps writing and rewriting her will recently and she keeps leaving half to me and I keep getting very frustrated with her. :P

    Does takeout mean delivery to you or is it like, to go into a restaurant and take away something you ordered ahead of time

    Yes, I use it to mean delivery. What do I say when I mean I'm going to order food and then go pick it up at the restaurant? "I'd like to place an order for take out?" Or do I say "to pick up"?

    Am I using takeout incorrectly? Does it primarily mean to pick up from a restaurant rather than to have the food delivered? I could easily have been misusing language this whole time without realizing...

    in fact, I think PAX East 2015 was a kind of turning point year for PAX just in general.

    How so

    South opened that year. It was the last year for even remotely reasonable hotel prices. Last good swag year. Last year of Khoo (well 2016 really but he was months from retirement at that point). Last year with a scheduled signing event for Mike & Jerry. First year of AFK room.

    The feel of things was just different in subsequent years. Thinner, more frantic, meaner, less game oriented!

    what's wrong with the AFK room?

    Nothing! It's a cool addition! But it's a sort of marker of when the character of the show changed somewhat.

    What there is in a lot of even modest-sized communities, and they can sometimes be hard to find, is "open to everyone" community centers, usually kept afloat with donations or through the support of one community organization or another. The one here in Oshawa is called "The Living Room", and it's a free arts & creativity & socializing space and is where I've met all of my non-group friends, though most of my friends from group also go to The Living Room every Saturday morning. It's a place, outside of our mental health groups and classes, etc., where we can feel comfortable talking about our real shit, 'cause often people have something they need to get off their chest. It's very restorative, most weeks.

    It's where I met NYE-Kiss-Girl the first two times, too :D
