  1. Dear Looch, For a football program who hasn't won shit in 80 or however many fucking years, you sure is a fucking idiot. Quit worrying about Texas and worry about your school winning fucking something, maybe in the next 50 years, before you overdose on dicks, you cock gobbling chin pubes little boy fucking imbecile. Signed, Everyone
  2. Is Arch's team playing against an 8th grade team? Most of the dudes in blue look like they are 5'5" and 120 lbs.
  3. Fuck TCU. Sat 3pm the site motto is going to be, "We beat they ass." Not going be close.
  4. i was wrong to use a dictionary, probably THE dictionary, as a source of truth for what a word or phrase means. totally my bad.
  5. riddle me how it's not a damned if they do, damned if they don't situation. riddle me how the situation is not either the "Essential Meaning of catch-22" or 2.C below. the police/fbi spent all this time looking and some people are complaining that they are wasting time following a "lead" by the family to throw off the search. but if they didn't spend all that time in the swamp thinking it's a false lead by the family and the dude is actually in the swamp, people complain the police/fbi are stupid for not listening the family and following up on the lead. either way, people bitch. ergo, the police/fbi are in a catch 22. https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/catch-22 Essential Meaning of catch-22 : a difficult situation for which there is no easy or possible solution I'm in a catch-22: to get the job I need experience, but how do I get experience if I can't get the job? Full Definition of catch-22 1: a problematic situation for which the only solution is denied by a circumstance inherent in the problem or by a rule the show-business catch-22—no work unless you have an agent, no agent unless you've worked— Mary Murphyalso : the circumstance or rule that denies a solution 2 a: an illogical, unreasonable, or senseless situation b: a measure or policy whose effect is the opposite of what was intended c: a situation presenting two equally undesirable alternatives 3: a hidden difficulty or means of entrapment : CATCH
  6. catch 22. if they don't follow the lead and he was in there the whole time, they'd be getting an insane amount shit. it's much safer and pragmatic by doing the due diligence and following up on that "lead", especially if it came from the family.
  7. that happened in telecom and in the manufacturing company i'm at now. leave for a few years, come back with a huge title and salary bump, much much better than if you would have gotten had you stayed and tried to get promoted from within.
  8. this has been my experience. you climb the salary and title ladder much faster by jumping companies. 2-3 years at each job. recruiters and hiring managers used to care about multiple companies every few years. not anymore. if you look good on paper and interview well, no one gives a fuck how long you stayed at your previous job.
  9. Apple's dongle and accessories business to take a hit. https://www.theverge.com/2021/9/23/22626723/eu-commission-universal-charger-usb-c-micro-lightning-connector-smartphones no more lightning bullshit. USB-C. welcome to 2016 iphones!!!!!!!!!
  10. maybe purely anecdotal but the population of homeless seems to have exploded during covid. it was batshit crazy before. maybe many of these unskilled workers would rather be homeless than working in shitty, dead end jobs. this trend started before covid because there was a labor shortage in the austin restaurant industry. covid is the just icing on that shit cake.
  11. i wonder how much of this factors into it. hourly jobs, especially those in retail and restaurants, have to deal with the added risk of covid. hourly jobs do not pay for/offer health insurance. i wonder how many people thought, yea fuck that risk working for shitty wages, dealing with entitled assholes and karens, all the while worrying about catching covid and dying due to no insurance, or not being able to pay off the medical bills if they survive. this whole shitshow may be a blip and everything goes back to "normal" in a year, or this shitshow exposed the shitty system which exploited cheap labor and the cheap labor said fuck it, they're done being shit on by everyone.
  12. this has probably been address up thread but i would think the lack of immigration is direct factor in unskilled labor shortage. i would think fast food and restaurant industry is the hardest hit by this. if you have ever worked in a restaurant, you know the kitchen, prep, and cleaning staff are mostly latino immigrants. whoda thunk cutting off the supply to that labor market would impact the very industry which relies on that labor. so what about non-latinos making up the labor shortage difference? fucking lulz. it's beneath most of them. shit is hard work.
