Jokes aside, there is a connection there though, at least between (Christian) religion and certain schools of thought of Western style neoliberal capitalism (in our world, it's almost difficult to remember that there even are other approaches than that).

Simply put, Calvinism, on which much of the U.S. as a burgeoning society and culture was founded (but which also had a considerable impact on British society), originates from the premise that it is predetermined whether you will go to heaven or to hell after this life. Where you will spend your eternal life is fixed from the day you are born.

But there's a problem; you will not know during this life, or at least not know that easily, if you are among the chosen ones to go to heaven or not. So in order to somehow work out if you are, Calvinists believe that the key is hard work. Hard graft, toil and labour. Blood, sweat and tears. And then if you are rewarded for your hard work and are able to enjoy the fruit of your labour, or perhaps even riches, then that's an indication that you are indeed among the chosen ones.

Neoliberalism has taken the principle of hard work and rewards and has run with it. It emphasizes the importance of hard work and self-reliance, and tends to reward those who manage to amass material wealth, all the while dangling the carrot of supposed economic opportunity in front of those who don't. By this logic, failure, and economic failure in particular, happens because you don't work hard enough.

And that's where we see the underbelly of Calvinism and its intertwinement with capitalism and neoliberalism; nowadays, in practice, neoliberalism has chiefly come to mean that the middle and lower classes are doing all the hard work, and the capitalists, as in those who have got capital and lots of it, do fuck all and just watch their investment portfolios grow. And they're still blaming the lower classes for their failure to become rich, and are still dangling the carrot in front of them, all the while knowing full well how cynical that is.

Even though I am an atheist, I sometimes really do wish Jesus Christ would come back from the dead. He would simply shake his head in disbelief.

I guess you enjoyed the first ever book on sociology by Max Weber too. Whilst it's an interesting piece of work, there isn't much data to suggest that there's a correlation between the Lutheran Reformation and a rise in output. The first liberalised markets were in renaissance era Italy as opposed to Protestant areas. It might be pleasing to find similarities between the Chicago school of economics and the Puritan religous ideology that had existed a few hundred years before in that region but I think it's on faulty grounds. They are just too disparate.

I don't think you can trace the replacement of religion by capitalism/economics by one leading to the other; it's more like economics inhabited the vacuum religion left behind as it withered in the west. Without a capricious God to explain why things get better or worse, The Economy will have to suffice.

Give those dolphin lovers the Human Symbol when you see them! Don't know how? I'll show you with this two step tutorial.

1. Place your hands together with thumbs sticking out.
2. Flex your thumbs and shout, "Human Power" or "Humans Rule."

NOTE: If you only have one hand free, it's okay to use one hand.

The movement emphasizes our opposable thumbs. We have thumbs and dolphins don't!

Bought an old MX-5 recently, spent the weekend fixing the wiring, chasing down a weird engine noise, and wondering if it's supposed to smell that much like petrol. Most fun I've had in ages.

Also my hair is falling out at an alarming rate and I should probably go to the doctors but I can't handle the possibility of hearing that it's just genetic.

I share your grief. My girlfriend says I am starting to look like Jason Statham.

Which isn't a bad thing because she loves Jason Statham... but then right in the next sentence, she crushed my spirit again by saying "Maybe you could work out a little so you'd have his kind of muscle as well!"

Biggest Russian imageboard 2ch.hk destroyed. Greed and greed of its current administration led to what is now the entrance to it not only requires registration, but also paid.
We - its primary audience. We do not agree with this state of affairs.
In this regard, we begin a mass exodus to other, foreign imageboard.
In connection with the question - what are the rules of this board and if you greet visitors from abroad?

It had been destroyed multiple times before, both by the change of generations occupying it and the crass PR efforts of its administration on the Russian Facebook analogue.

Can't say I particularly care. I'm too old for the current iteration of imageboards, I guess.

Sorry to ruin your Saturday, but do Amy of you have personal experience of this? Not a general prostitution thread, but rather travelling somewhere with the primary purpose of engaging in paid for sex.

I recently discovered that an acquaintance of mine who is very handsome, witty, charming etc, does this very frequently, which makes me wonder if it's not really about the sex as such.

>How did the chav Sheridan Smith manage to get an OBE?

You're only thinking that because she was playing a chav on Two Pints.

She went on to play a lead in the short-lived BBC sitcom Grownups, btw. Which, sadly, kind of remained under everybody's radar. Where she played an entirely different character - an aspiring, albeit often hapless businesswoman who mostly had her shit together.

I think Sheridan Smith is good fun. She was loads of laughs on Two Pints, and I've seen interviews with her, I think she's really quite likeable as a person.

Back in the day, I always wanted to get audience tickets to Two Pints. But then the show got cancelled before I could ever be arsed to really apply for them.

Lads, youtube are a bunch of cunts. Their copyright claims process is ass backwards.

I uploaded a piece of music I had written that day to my youtube channel, and before I had even hit publish it had a copyright claim against it by some company called "adrev", with a song title that when googled brought up no such song. I tried uploading it again to be sure and the same thing happened. Yep, obviously a bot, and one that has access to youtube videos BEFORE they are published. Wtf?

I was given the option to "share revenue" with these adrev cunts, which I rightly disputed. I am now waiting 30 days to hear back. Here's the fucked bit though. When I filed the dispute, youtube said my dispute claim was being sent to the copyright holder to see if it was valid or not.

So my claim, that this music I had written the same day as I uploaded it was mine, is being sent to the cunts who set up a bot to try and shyster poor unknown youtubers into giving them half their money! And if they disagree with my claim I will get a copyright strike! Three of those and the channel is shut down.

I am frankly, mad beyond words. I'll keep this thread updated with the results when I get them, but in the meantime has any of you ever come across this before? What did you do?

I've got a presentation at work tomorrow and I am sitting here ironing out the last few niggles. We're in the finishing stages of a major project, and tomorrow is crucial. My boss will be there and one or two people from higher up the chain. If things go well, it could mean that I will eventually get promoted and will get to take on even bigger projects.

Still need to throw out a few typos though, and double check a few charts and figures. One of my coworkers made some last-minute contributions this weekend, and what he e-mailed me was a right fucking mess.

Just got home from a wedding.

It was atrocious. Stifling atmosphere, dull bridal couple, poor choice of musical entertainment. And I was placed at a table with two somewhat unsightly perennially single women with repulsive senses of old spinster humour.

I excused myself at around 1am saying I had a serious headache. And now I am sitting in front of the TV in trackies, watching "9/11 - The Falling Man" and having a few bottles of Stella.

Should've been doing this the whole evening.

Didn't think it would be long before African-American ghetto slang would start being confused with British Caribbean inner city slang.

"Being ghetto" isn't something that is aspired to where I come from.

It's more what happens to you when you slide down the social ladder.

ITT: Weird dreams you've had lately.

I actually dreamed last night that I was in Australia, visiting the two blokes from the Foster's adverts in their beach hut. Sure enough, they gave me a Foster's, and I said "cheers, guys"... and then one of them said to me "oh no mayt, we don't say cheers heere. We say 'You little ripper!'"

Quite bizarre... has this dream got any deeper meaning, or have I just been watching too much telly lately?

There's only one fit punishment for bicycle thieves:

One of my mates got his bicycle stolen two times where he lives. They've got a communal bicycle room in the basement, and that's where they nicked it from. The first time, he got money back for it from his home insurance, but the second time, they were making a fuss and telling him they weren't liable for customer negilgence.

So now putting your bicycle in a communal bicycle room, with a lock on it no less, is negligence.

What kind of lock though? So many people use these skinny little cable locks that can be cut through easy as anything.

What I meant was, putting your bike in a bicycle room, with any kind of lock on it really, does not warrant an assumption of negligence.

You didn't just leve it leaned against a lamp post outside over night, unsecured.

And even if a bike of yours has been nicked from that basement before, it still shouldn't mean that you were being negligent by putting your new bicycle in it as well.
