You don't work for free.[/quote] No, if you're salaried (technically, it's called exempt), you get paid a fixed amount per pay period. Presumably, you've accounted for the expected amount ...

  • Re: Right or wrong, it's rape

    I don't normally follow news out of India, but it does seem like a bone fide rape culture, from stuff I've seen over the last few months. Right or wrong, colonialism brought Sir Charles Napier to India: [quote user="Sir Charles Napier"] Be it so. This burning of widows is your custom; prepare the funeral pile. But my ...

  • Re: Do you work too much?

    [quote user="flabdablet"]This executive summary is worth reading.[/quote] I think analyses like this overemphasize the costs (e.g., health) and underemphasize the benefits (e.g., developed world health is better than ever) of the current energy regime.

    [quote user="flabdablet"] Green energy has the potential to become an absolutely massive employment generator, mainly because so much of it is inherently human scale: fitting solar panels on roofs employs a lot more people per installed megawatt than does using enormous machinery to chuck thousands of tons of coal into a central ...
