    We bought our first house earlier this year - 850m, huge yard, double shed, close to work for both of us but over an hours drive from my old rugby club.

    I’ve been doing preseason with the local rugby league team and i tell you what mongo is a fkn man sport. Coming home every Tuesday/Thursday night feeling like gomer pyle after the sock flogging.

    Was a bit of an anomaly in rugby as I played a bit of everywhere, mostly halfback but also flanker, 12 and sometimes hooker. Been training at hooker with the league club but ran at fullback for the team run against As on Thursday.

    Been eating like a horse to try keep the weight on - I’m at 88kg reasonably lean for the first time in my life and want to finally make it to 95 before dad bod kicks in for real

    These mother fukers get paid to play - $90 a game for reggies, $150 for A grade. I’ve been forking out $400 a year for union registration since I left school like a cat damn moron

    Wish I could divulge information about the state of my work here but I'd be snapped up in an instant. Being as camouflage as possible, I work for one of the biggest companies in the world in terms of food and beverages. Everything happening right now is wrong, and I'm putting out product that should never make it to shelf based on QC alone. And I'm talking to brick walls. At the end of the day it's going to be my ass because nobody in the upper ranks ever takes responsibility... So I half expect to find myself on the unemployment line soon.

    If it isn't sorted within a week, I'm cutting past my direct management team and going straight to the top.

    I assume you've created an email trail laying out your concerns to your management team? You should have some kind of evidence that you've done your bit and they're sitting around with their collective thumb up their arses.

    BTW going to the top is a bold move. It absolutely sounds like the right thing to do but traditionally you end up being treated as a crazy maverick. I guess if you're going to get screwed either way you may as well roll the dice.

    Many times always start assuming raw survival instinct.

    Who had something to gain, who has something to lose.

    The mid management are protesting their jobs and income, as well as seeking promotion by often skewing performance to look better than it may really be.(possibly conceding QC)

    The upper management are protecting their income, and in some cases the shareholder(incentive stock option income)- however they may also be willing to skew performance by conceding quality - but not as much -their baseline pay is safer with a bigger loss if poor behavior is exposed.

    The board of directors is there to protect the shareholder. If something is happening that would place the company in a position liability, they want to know. If it’s a concession of quality for profit - they may want to know , or already know and have agreed to take that route.

    If senior management or ceo is making compromises to maximize their compensation(board sets the comp package) however possibly placing the shareholder in a bad position- the board wants to know.


    Who to talk to?

    Is the QC compromise causing possible safety issues? You’re pretty protected in they case.

    Is it just poor quality, however the efficacy is increasing the compensation of management?

    How is each level paid?

    Who is it helping get paid more ?

    Who is it not really helping get paid more?

    Tell the person or people it’s not helping the most.


    If it’s just a quality concession that doesn’t really compromise safety and the company had just made that strategic decision as a whole, shut up and do your job and don’t buy their stock.

    The first step I would take is learn each levels compensation package.


    In some cases you send it the senior managements and CC board members.

    Pipe burst under my driveway, has apparently been leaking for a while, water bill is enormous. Insurance should be covering most of repair costs but we can’t start work until they send out their phaggot to look at damage first / 2 days of telling them it’s an emergency and no phaggot yet. Water is off st the mains - turninfcit on in bursts for showers etc...

    Joys of home ownership

    Had first game of league today - on the bench for A grade - due to injuries had to play nearly the whole game. My body was not ready - nearly 40 degrees out there today.

    Son is rolling around now and crawling backwards, pushing himself around in his walker.

    I went on r/politics this morning. Everyone is mad at fox for being in bed with trump or something. It’s like bizarro world

    Yeah, r/politics used to be more neutral. Then it became a sounding board for anti-Trump Democrats. r/NeutralPolitics/ is basically the old r/politics. So go to neutral politics instead, unless you're just checking up on the state of the anti-Trump echo chamber.

    Regarding the vicissitudes of home ownership, wait until your kids' friends start coming over in droves.

    I like Harry Potter. Are you implying that you don't? If so, did you really give it a chance to begin with? It stimulates your imagination in very healthy ways.

    Watched the Swan Lake ballet there last month. That was incredible

    Swan Lake, I can completely get. It's just beautiful. I'm hoping to catch it the next time the ballet company in my area puts on a show but I'm sure it won't be as awesome as the one you saw.

    Alas, I'd never gotten into HP as a kid/teenager and never really tried :-/ I don't see the big deal, I'm afraid. Blah...

    :P

    Tbh, I'd come across other, better books in relation to fantasy/sci-fi. My bf recently introduced me to David Eddings and in terms of fantasy as a genre, it's infinitely better. Just me :-/

    Eddings is barely better than a hack. He’s one step above Dean Koontz. HP is limited for sure but in the respective genres of teen vs. adult fantasy, it’s far better.

But we have a right to remember how barbarically they behaved when they were strong and were making an offer that people could not refuse.”

    The Belgariad in isolation is one of the greatest deconstructions of the fantasy genre presented in an easy to digest pageturning romp

    The malloreon is the belgariad but worse

    Elenium is the malloreon but butter

    Tamuli is the elenium but worse

    Belgarath the sorcerer and Polgara the sorceress are masturbation on paper

    Althalus is hot trash

    But the belgariad - that’s a good fkn series

    He’s no Zelazny but he’s readable at his worst and pretty damn good at his best
