hard work does not come naturally, but enthusiasm does.

And that it is a personal choice, whether we bridge the gap or not.

the futurist: the misandry bubble

It is already wrong when a contemporary group seeks reparations from an injustice that occurred over a century ago to people who are no longer alive.  It is even worse when this oppression itself is a fabrication.  The narrative of female oppression by men should be rejected and refuted as the highly selective and historically false narrative that it is.  In fact, this myth is evidence not of historical oppression, but of the vastly different propensity to complain between the two genders.

because they can’t do it themselves

I am overtly promoting the blog Lesser Vindications.

Lesser Vindications is a feminism blog run by two students who should really be studying instead of blogging.

This blog was created on a whim by Xionky and Bezzle because they both just had too many opinions about things.  Feminism was one of those things.

They’re both young and stupid, and perhaps will look back and wonder what this blog was all about.  In the meantime, they will continue to be unreasonable, obnoxious and self-righteous in their quest to hate men, burn bras, kill unborn children and spread socialism.

the older we get, the more consciously aware of time passing we become.

that took you about 5 seconds to read, but took me just short of 18 years to observe.

I think this deserves a post of its own:

We are all dead: Productivity surged, but we’re becoming a low productivity nation?

Yesterday, the national accounts released by the ABS showed that we had the fastest productivity growth in over a decade, in the year to the March quarter. You would think that this would give pause to the alarmists who claim that our current industrial relations laws are ruining the economy. You would be wrong.

Instead, The Australian led with a report by the Business Council of Australia that claims we’re becoming a “high-cost and low-productivity nation”.  The Australian Financial Review also featured the BCA report on its front page, suggesting that projects are threatened by “rigid and archaic work practices” and that the Fair Work Act is the prime culprit for our “high-cost structure”.
