While this is true, I don't live in Qld right now...

This is happening something like 2500km from me. Pretty much like looking at California from Ohio or something.

So sure, but this is a state government decision (with federal backing), which I can't really impact, at the moment...

I'm more observing and commenting on the insanity from afar, at this point.

It's amazing seeing all the useful idiot whites in social media comments saying how "wonderful" this is, and how their children and grandchildren will forget that the island was ever called anything non-woke...

Madness.

A society this divided doesn't have that much longer left, IMHO...

Just wait until their fucking "Voice to Parliament" gets up, and they start actually renaming "racist" towns and cities!

“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been re-written, every picture has been re-painted, every statue and street and building has been re-named, every date has been altered."

They also pretended to do "public consultation" on this decision, and then promptly ignored and buried the results of that consultation, when they didn't necessarily get the "results" they wanted...

Evil. I have no qualms about saying that this one is evil. Collective madness writ large.

Leftists are absolutely frothing with glee, at the decision, too. Because of course they are...

There’s also impulsivity vs not…

Of course, this varies massively from person to person, but I think men might… Consider it for longer, before actually following through

Which feeds back into choice of method, etc.

Like, it’s something they’ve considered for some time, before… They just can’t take it anymore.

But yeah, that’s the problem with people misunderstanding it and thinking that all suicides/attempts are the same…

Yup. To pre-empt people calling me a “white knight” or something for pointing this out:

She’s an adult. She’s choosing to be, and stay, with him, and presumably at least agreed to fuck up her appearance and become unrecognizable (much like all the Car-Dash-Cams) in the process…

She is also, from what I have heard, just another narcissistic, spoiled, privilege grifter. Fine.

But that can all be true at the same time as pointing out that everything about this, and really their whole relationship, just screams abuse and manipulation…

Don’t date your employer, people! Especially when they are famous!!

I mean, I can only see this as "I own you, bitch". Which is... Rather sad. She was actually quite pretty before (before the horrible hair and eyebrows, and the cosmetic shit, which I suspect this outfit is partly designed to hide).

Beyond that... Fuck knows.

There's no way that this ends well, though. For either of them...

Whether he believes or not, I do not know, but imagine being in that church service, with them, lol...

Nuts.

Fair. I just wish people weren't such dicks about it, honestly.

Like, "Sorry, I just don't have time at the moment" or "Sorry, but I don't feel comfortable doing that" is much better than "Nah, I have a family now. Get stuffed" or "I never knew you as well as you seemed to think I did, and you were a shit student anyway."

Like fuck, tact works both ways, doesn't it??

And those were the ones who bothered to reply. I hate to think what the ones who ignored me completely would say, if they could be stuffed, lol...

People suck, ha.

Benedictus, from "The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace", by Karl Jenkins...

Probably the most moving piece of music I've ever heard live (on Remembrance Day, I think it was).

Bloody fantastic, this one.

Humanity can produce some amazing things, sometimes. When we truly try.

No worries, dude!

This is the cello performance, and the definitive recording of this piece. Like, you know how sometimes different recordings/concerts/whatever come to define something (Live at Budokan for both Cheap Trick and that venue; Lynyrd Skynyrd at Oakland Coliseum is another one)..? This is one of those.

It's fantastic. Even if you don't listen to/watch the whole thing, the first six minutes or so are some of the most iconic in classical music history, which is kind of cool. :-)

As someone with MS, too, well, she's an icon for that as well.

Fucking wish I could play an instrument like this, though, ha.

Ah, see, this is a slightly different thing...

This is a personal letter of reference. I don't need it to be on corporate letterhead. Hell, I don't need it to be "sanctioned" by the respective companies/organisations at all. I just need some fucker, who has at some point "supervised" or "managed" me, to answer some specific questions about my ability to work, how well I work in groups, etc...

Which it sounds like, in your experience, it might be even more difficult to get, in the US. Eugh...

It's extremely painful, trying to get anyone to do this, even here, let me tell you that much...

I just wish I could meet more fucking normal people, dude…

Like, all of the people I am having to ask for this shit, pretty much, are like this…

The only “normal” people who will actually play ball here are fucking immigrants. All the whiteys I know are some form of degenerate, pathetic simps like this individual OR they’re just unpleasant, like the academic I spoke about earlier…

Fuck. Fuck this shit. I hate it so much, fml…

So the one who said that to me…

I’ve just discovered (via emails bouncing back) that he is a gigacuck who literally changed his name to his wife’s name, only answers to a shortened, androgynous version of his real name (Jem instead of Jeremy) and has changed all his records to pretend his birth name doesn’t exist/can’t be accessed…

Jesus H Christ on a stick…

I hate people.

I wish it was to my face…

But nah, e-mail/text…

Much worse, ha.

Just made me sad, really… 😑

I need this, though, so I’ll have to keep asking around.

I looked over again what I was asking, thinking “Surely they could do this if they wanted to?”, and yes, yes they could.

So yeah, you’re probably right. They just don’t fucking care.

Even with the courses where I was an “A Student” and got to know the supe well - they couldn’t be fucked, lol.

I hate this shit. All of it. 😒

bamboozler1 4 points ago +4 / -0

Yeah, unfortunately this one requires an actual reference letter, which asks them specific questions which they have to "endorse" me in regard to, I guess would be the best explanation...

So normally you are right, but in this case... I actually physically need them to do it up for me, which... Is proving to be the difficult thing. Unfortunately...

The people I’ve asked have responded in a number of pretty unpleasant ways…

Except one, who is much older, and was both fine with it, and perfectly willing to help.

But yeah, the Millennials and Gen X folk I asked? Ouch.

Especially the “I have a family now. I don’t have time for this” one.

Not sure what that says about me, that these are the people I’m having to ask, lol…

I hate everything about this. 😔

bamboozler1 2 points ago +2 / -0

Someone else who I asked said “I have a family now - I don’t have time”, lol…

Ouch.

But to be fair, it’s been a while. He’s probably more annoyed at being contacted and asked like this, unfortunately…

Better than the academics I asked, though. The academics were dogshit about this.

bamboozler1 1 point ago +1 / -0

Yeah, this thing that I need references for is overseas, and there’s absolutely no way anyone I’ve worked with (in the last decade or so, anyway) would be able to influence it, outside of this reference thing, lol…

Which is good, in that sense, but also makes it harder to get someone willing to “play the game” and give me the ref I need, lol.

bamboozler1 2 points ago +2 / -0

Wish I had you as a teacher then. 😏

To be fair though, this is like a specific set of questions, i.e. “how would applicant react in this situation?” “Do you think applicant would apply themselves well?”, etc.

So… It would require a small degree of effort, on their part…

I’m just going to go for people I know outside of academia, because they’re much more willing to help, apparently…

So I got the series name right, but conflated two things here:

You have Alex Rider, which is essentially Horowitz’s version of a young Bond with an original character, and then you have the “official” Young Bond series, of which the first is called Silverfin, which is by Charlie Higson…

And you have the Young Bond tv series linked by Triangle below, which predates both of those…

I don’t know about the TV series, as it’s before my time, but I will say that, IMHO, Alex Rider >> Young Bond (in the books). At least the first… Five or so, anyway!

It’s interesting that we get “England” and “English” from the Angles, but yet we generally refer to the Saxons much more…

I did a bit of reading on this recently - it’s suggested this is because the Saxons were more into military leadership/conquest, whereas the Angles, who dominated a slightly different part of the “country”/island were more into developing the culture and stuff…

And also because apparently a larger proportion of Angles shuffled off to Britain, vis à vis the Saxons who left like half their people behind…

Interesting that the Jutes barely rate a mention, though, lol…

Ah, the Dark Ages…

In the sense that they likely thought of themselves more as "Angles, Saxons or Jutes", sure...

But they most definitely existed, as far as a collective term for the dominant ethnic group occupying England at the time, so... Cambridge is wrong. Obviously...

But do remember Anglo-Saxons ≠ "Britons", who were the native people before the Romans arrived, and who merged with other groups as they came to "dominate" later on...

It's complicated. Obviously...

But all of these groups would be considered "white", so... shrug.

Of course Cambridge hates that.

Anthony Horowitz (of Alex Rider fame) wrote a bunch of “Young Bond” books, around a decade ago…

More YA than “adult”, and I wasn’t a huge fan of the one I read, but nonetheless, they do exist!

He’s an ok writer, if you like that sort of “adventure novel” style. They’re much, much less “sexy” than adult Bond, though, obviously…

Literally no one is buying this…

Not even a fucking virtue-signaling liberal woman is likely gonna say “Hmm, oh yes, that cover speaks to me! I simply must buy a copy.”

I mean, come on
