Self control is key.

You have to be able to hold a fart until the people you've called to your cubicle have arrived.

IT's time for FUCK! YEAH! I'll Take You!

FUCK! YEAH! is an open source app that rides smart phones with proximity maps for 'passengers' and 'riders' each of which can assume the other role at any time.

The app houses maps and a rating system from DAHMER! to GANDI! and a bidding mechanism by which someone reports location, destination and bid for ride.

That's it. No one answers in 5 minutes, you bid again or hail a real cab.

FUCK! gets a buck that goes to a common fund to maintain the app for every ride completed.

That's it.

Uber fucked.

Yes folks, that is THE Ellen K Pao of "I want millions of dollars because I'm a woman" lawsuit.

She's obviously a brilliant CEO and people manager.

"If globalism isn't helping American workers, (that should be obvious) and it isn't helping the Chinese or Indians, who is the only beneficiary of all the new free trade? "

1. Chinese and Indian living standards have been improving dramatically in the past 2-3 decades: by orders of magnitude in dollar terms, 10x to 100x income increase in many cases. In some parts, they have a bubble.

2. What "globalism" does is highly dependent on what you mean by "globalism": real unfettered free trade benefit all those who are parties to the trade, including the poor. The problem is that "globalism" and "trade agreements" have in recent years become more and more like "managed trade," i.e. trade managed by government bureaucrats and their cronies who put the "trade agreements" together. Of course, in that case, the regulations on trade benefit the regulators and their cronies.

There is no reason a 2/3 in Fremont should not cost exactly the same as the GDP of Croatia!

Germany is a model of what a nation can be when they protect their trade from asian exploitation. They have a 1:1 ratio with China, you buy our widget and we buy yours. Keeps China from pirating every design because they need to buy things from Germany.
Meanwhile, if you need industrial equipment of any kind, you pretty much have to buy German products. You'd be wise to, in any case, as they are good quality. Not cheap tho!
Meanwhile American college students are emigrating to Germany where their tuition is not only free, but classes are often conducted in English, they get a housing stipend, and the German government hopes they decide to stick around and work for at least a few years.
We may all be clamoring to rejoin the Fatherland in a few years....

The only reason to use an actual fax machine (and not a fax-to-e-mail gateway) to receive faxes in 2009 is to receive some documents w/o leaving a trace. The bitch was trying to hide something.

Unfortunately, close to 3/4 of the population doesn't have any spare cash to stash!

You can save $250 by not taking your luxury cruise to Grand Cayman this year.............

For the men, a good haircut, firm handshake and winning smile are the keys to success.

No magic bullet to cure income inequality"

Oh, I think regular bullets would work

That's what tends to happen, but only when the peasants have nothing. You may not like an income of $15k a year and I sure don't, but there's lots and lots of people out there who have no issue with sitting and watching Jerry Springer all day.

As long as the peasants eat and have mindless entertainment, there is no revolt to be had.

I think there are numerous instances of being raped you can imagine that are FAR preferable to having your entire life flushed down the toilet from a false accusation.

WTF ? Either you're having too many prison/scout troop fantasies or you need to lay down on a couch and talk to someone - for a long time

How come it's always about rape with this guy?

He's standing on street corners in Santiago, holding out pictures of his crap shack in Concord, telling passing crack whores, "Me mointo caliente real estate mogul, seniorita! Squeezita my ballsack, si?" while his kid tries to hide behind cars so no one will see he is with him.

I have one child who was spanked who makes close to 200k per year.

He might still be into spanking, for all we know.

All the gay mormon Boy Scout leaders are going to stuff entire troops into wedding dresses and turn them into prepubescent boy harems.

It was the plan all along.

Reality is hilarious. Is he really saying that his anecdote about visiting China is more persuasive than hard data?

Wait, are you and iwog saying India and China are worse off than before ???

Yeah, interesting twist - makes you wonder who is wearing the tinfoil hats here ;)

Maybe you can educate me here.

Nobody has been able to so far.
