    There is an added health component to a Wetherspoons over other pubs though, the 1.2km walk to find the bogs.

    In my experience of Wetherspoons many people seemingly never find them and piss straight into the beer pipes.

    For a short time there, just about every young one was encouraged to get into coding as “the next wave of the future” the hot thing to study and get into. So I took a class in Computer Science and learned C and a little Python (coding language) on the side. I can do it but it just is not for me. Doesn’t really pull me in and hold my interest. I guess I will miss out on making millions…

    Studies show that many graduate with degrees but they just aren’t in the STEM subjects, the really hard demanding subjects and there will be (probably already is in some fields) a shortage of specialists. Apparently, everybody wants to go to college, but nobody wants to take on the hard classes.

    there will be (probably already is in some fields) a shortage of specialists.

    In the US there is already a shortage of plumbers, electricians, painters, carpenters and other “blue collar” specialists, especially in big cities and surrounding suburbs. There are lots of people going into higher education for engineering degrees and computer programming degrees, but few who are learning trades. As a result a good plumber/electrician/tradesman is in high demand and can pretty much name his own price. High school guidance counselors would be doing a service to some students by recommending that they learn one of those trades.

    Vocational Blue collar work like that in NYC depends on a lot. Union politics, if there is work or if work is slow, immigrants competing with you, the mob, and so on. I don’t even want to get into having minority status…

    My point originally is that coding is not for me and not too many American college students want to take on the tougher majors.

  • #40110

    Coding has been touted as this great solution when there really aren’t that many opportunities.

    And really, it’s a game for the young. for the better end of the pay scale, you’re putting in god-awful amounts of time that tends to burn out most people by the time they hit 30.

    It’s the same in the UK. In recent years 50% of school leavers go to university. When I went in 1893 I think it was less than a fifth of that. Obviously I’m all in favour of education and I wish we lived in a world where 100% of the population could be free to learn anything they wanted while robots did the hard work. But the reality is that we don’t need 50% of the population to be graduates, and many of them will end up in low-level jobs that they are vastly over-qualified for. A few more people trained in plumbing or other skilled trades would be far more useful to society (and probably more fulfilled personally) than another Media Studies graduate filling in Excel spreadsheets for a  living.

    I completely agree. I’m just saying as far as high school counselling is concerned, they do already recommend that. I know that here in Germany at least, we try our best to give that advice to students who are unlikely to succeed in an academic field, and the experience is that parents most of the time are not very open to this.

    It is really for plumbers and electricians? I don’t know the situation in New York but the places I’ve lived those roles are mostly freelancers. They get the training, certification, some tools and a van and they’re off and running.

  • #40403

    For big commercial projects in the NYC area, most of the big contractors are unionized, and hire primarily union subcontractors for plumbing, electrical, etc. just to avoid the complications and bad publicity of picket lines. Small businesses and home-owners typically hire a tradesman who is self-employed or a small non-union labor, as the Unions won’t bother putting pressure on such small clients. I should note that those small operators still have to be registered with the NYC Department of Buildings and maintain the appropriate insurances (Workers Compensation, Disability, Liability, etc) in order to apply for permits; but many of them don’t bother and take the risk that they won’t get caught and fined.

    You know:

    I am not a crusader for good English grammar, but I am none too crazy about these new “words” I read on social media.

    Words such as “normalize” and “weaponize”. I prefer to say make normal and make into a weapon.

    What is with these words anyway?

  • #40677

    From Merriam-Webster online dictionary:

    First known use of weaponize is from 1957.

    First known use of normalize is from 1847.

    So “weaponize” is older than the treaty of Rome, and thus the EEC and the European Union, while “normalize” is older than the country Germany.

    But to your point, I like new words. The world is changing, we need new words to map it out.

    There is a great number of factors that contribute to immigrants not learning the language of the country they’ve migrated to, and it’s usually not because they don’t want to.

    Where TV and movies are concerned, I think globalisation has actually made things somewhat harder; these days, you can usually get your original home country’s television, and the kids mostly do everything with the internet anyway, so they find native language content easily.

    None of this will ever affect the German dub is all I know, because in a stroke of genius the synchronisation studio didn’t try and go for some kind of German street slang, but instead has them speaking in the Bavarian dialect.

    I swear, if you can speak German, this variation is really, really funny.

    As for answering the question seriously… I think this is the kind of scene you probably wouldn’t in this way today, but on the other hand it’s not all that far from the kind of thing Key and Peele have been doing until recently. Nobody is in blackface and the humour of the scene is in the absurdity of the old white lady speaking slang; I don’t think that’s very problematic?

    My brother was posted to Bosch in Stuttgart during his sandwich year in university. He spent a few months trying to get some basic German listening to linguaphone tapes and he’s quite good at self learning so got at least to a level he could carry out a simple conversation.

    On his first day he introduced himself in German and got the response ‘ah you’re from the UK, great, I can practice my English’. He had that so often that he didn’t really use the German much at all and when he got home a year later wasn’t that much better than when a left.

    It links to your first point because for many people they don’t learn easily on their own and need some formal instruction, while people in monoglot English speaking countries often moan about immigrants not learning the language they don’t do very much to help them. There’s irony present in how they expect it to be easily done with little support when they have never learnt a second language themselves.

    In the German refugee/immigration discussion, one of the little absurdities was that last year or so, people complained a lot that so many immigrants hadn’t learned any German yet and there was a political debate about making taking language courses mandatory (and tying that to monetary benefits – if you don’t take a language course, you’d be punished by having the monthly money you get to survive being reduced). At the same time, if you looked at the actual situation, the problem wasn’t that immigrants refused (or didn’t bother to) take language courses but that there weren’t enough of them being offered, and that they didn’t have the skills to maneuvre the German bureaucratic system well enough to get the free courses (what with there only being German-language application forms and whatnot).

    It’s an interesting contrast in Wales because Welsh speakers are bilingual and naturally very keen to promote their minority language. So they provide more resources and volunteer free classes for refugees that they don’t necessarily get in English from central government.

    Bayrisch sounds to me like someone speaking mock Yiddish.

    Edit: I looked up the differences between Bayrisch and Standard German, and it makes sense I heard some Yiddish. Bayrisch grammar is more like Yiddish grammar then that of Standard German, and the forms is for ist and a for ein are common between Bayrisch and Yiddish. The r sound and the shift of a to o are also commonalities, but most of the other phonetic differences are more like standard German in Yiddish.

    “Terror” vs. “Horror”: Which One Is Worse?

    So… thanks, I guess?

    “Terror” vs. “Horror”: Which One Is Worse?

    Many of the most suspenseful moments of fiction—within the Gothic genre or others—are caused by terror. As writer and editor Lincoln Michel notes, “Terror is the feeling of dread and apprehension at the possibility of something frightening.” He describes horror as “the shock and repulsion of seeing the frightening thing.” A Gothic novel can use terror to build suspense, while works of horror often put extreme violence on full display. Of course, some novels combine elements of the two.

    This reminds me of the Jamie Delano Hellblazer GN The Horrorist, drawn by David Loyd. I need to reread that one.

    A knight’s move always ends on a different colour to the one it started on. But even knowing that, it wasn’t until I started arranging pieces on the board that I realised how that fact basically answered the puzzle.

    Plus, I just got back my hour you stole from me.
    Don’t think you’re going to take from me without paying it back!

    Do American parents ever really name their sons “Bubba”, or is it a nickname?

    It wouldn’t surprise me if it has happened but it tends to be a nickname.

    Hey y’all I’m back. I’m going to post funny pictures mostly. And tell you what beer I’m drinking.

    Thanks I had a rough couple of weeks and I noticed posting here was a bit “triggering”. So I had to stop for a while. I feel a lot better now but I don’t think I am going to engage in any heavy debating.

    Good to have you back, Arjan!

    If you think a particular thread might be triggering, it is best to avoid it.

    On the other hand, The Thread of Goodness and Positivity can always use new content!

    So you don’t want to weigh in on whether MAN OF STEEL is better than PROMETHEUS?

    No but I’ll argue about wether Belgian beer is better or German.

    I had a parcel left with a neighbor while I was out shopping.

    As it’s illegal for me to meet my neighbor at the moment, the best plan I can think of is to throw stones at his window from the garden gate until he looks out, then mime him putting my parcel in the street while I back off :unsure:

    Don’t forget coronavirus can remain active on various surfaces for hours or even days, so he’d better just leave it in the street for you to retrieve on Monday.

    Have you tried telephoning him?

    Have you tried telephoning him?

    I was going to ask that question, but do neighbors share their phone numbers these days? my wife has the cellphone number of one of my immediate neighbors, the family that was living on this block when we moved in 30 years ago. But we don’t have the numbers of any other neighbors on the block, despite conversing with some of them on a regular basis.
