Yup, when people started ranting about how the contract needs to be strictly followed and is a bunch of rules and not a guideline, they failed to think everything through.

Refusing to come in on Sat. for that school festival for four hours meant you now had to come in for 8 hours a day for 8 days. Well thought-out.

Of course this isn't the same for everyone. Some schools were straight exploitative or run by psychos and yeah, people had to throw the contract in their face. But also, some people didn't understand how to play ball and well...

I was never like that.  I was flexible with schools and they were flexible with me.  But now the past year or so it's total lockdown.  I honeslty couldn't have done 15 years if it were like this the whole way through. 
Trolls on here are lame and need to get a life.

I've met some uni instructors who were actually bragging about how they enjoyed that kind of debauchery every winter (minus the drugs because Wow! That might jeopardize their jobs back in Korea!) over in Thailand. It kinda blew my mind how unaware they were about how they were creeping the rest of us totally out. Just gross.

So they thinking bragging about drug use in Thailand might jeopardize their job, but bragging about doing hookers in Thailand wouldn't? Do they know both are illegal? There is less of a stigma for prostitution use than drug use? One could cause job loss while the other wouldn't?

I think it's more that they thought (incorrectly) that describing there sexual escapades at get-togethers would be more socially acceptable to their audience than describing drug use. I'm guessing that these people wouldn't talk about either at their work.

   On the other hand, these are some pretty weird people, so who knows what they're thinking or what they'll do? There's a reason why so many of them are single, borderline alcoholics who have been working at the same low effort barely-above-minimum-wage jobs for the last several decades.
   If it weren't for the fact that most have been grandfathered in and therefor never had to get a master's, most would already have left long ago.   :undecided:

Among Democrats, 93% report that they’ve already gotten at least one shot or are likely to, compared with only 49% of Republicans.

Why so much refusal to vaccinate among the GOP? Because they’re being targeted by a deliberate campaign of disinformation.

Among those with something to gain is the Russian government, which is diligently working to undermine confidence in the vaccines as part of its goal of destabilizing American society.

In every nation of the world there are more boys born than girls.

Absent gender selective abortion, there are around 105 males per 100 females at birth.

It's almost as if Mother Nature is a misandrist troll.

In China, the world's most populous country, the ratio is 115:100.

In India, the second most populous, which also has over a billion, it's 111:100.

In the Middle East, when men take four wives, that leaves others with zero.

My heart breaks for the guys who want to get married, but can't.

How could my dad be the same man who grew veggies and fruit in his garden regularly yet stepped away to smoke tobacco continually?

(He was healthy as an Olympian until age 75. Then he suffered a car accident and the oh so wise doctors prescribed a liquid malt carb diet that exactly coincidentally matched cancer growth rates for casein and excess carbs. Two years later, surprise, surprise, he succumbed to cancer.)

Well, you start off pretty well, with the "absent gender selective abortion" bit, but then ignore the China and India imbalance. 

However, there's probably evolutionary effects going on.  Male infants more often suffer from health complications than female infants.  Boys and men tend also to die younger due to being idiots and due to war (though I repeat myself). 

Quote
The widely-accepted answer to this question was first put forth by Sir Ronald Fisher, a renowned evolutionary biologist who worked in the first half of the 20th century. Fisher's Principle holds that differences in the sex ratio will tend to diminish over time because of the reproductive advantage automatically held by members of the minority sex. Suppose, for example, that male births were far less common than female births. If this were the case, then newborn males would naturally have better mating prospects than newborn females, and could expect to have more offspring. Parents who are genetically disposed to produce males will thus tend to have more grandchildren, and so their male-producing genes will spread, and male births will become more common. Gradually the population will approach a gender balance.

More female than male embryos are offset by the more sustained development of the male.

There should be an extra million women for every billion men, but there aren't.

In areas without gender selected abortion and female infanticide, there are still more men than women until middle age (when women's fertility window closes). Why? Nature. Miscarriages are more likely to be female. Cave people aren't killing each other in tribal warfare, as civilization has advanced.

USA:
https://www.statista.com/statistics/241488/population-of-the-us-by-sex-and-age/

Canada:
https://www.statista.com/statistics/444858/canada-resident-population-by-gender-and-age-group/

Where preferences for a son led to aborted female fetuses, the imbalance is more severe.

In South Korea, the 20 to 29-year-old age bracket has 113.7 males per 100 females.

Worldwide at age 20, 106.636 males for every 100 females. Only at age 50 do women begin to outnumber men. Could the men without partners partner with the women over 50? Well, they could, but those women are no longer biologically capable of bearing children, meaning the man's dream of having a family will go unfulfilled.

From the moments before conception till the death rattle, we are competing.

No man is entitled to a woman, he has to compete with other men. Same for women.

If you're struggling to attract a mate it means your relationship/dating value is low. Good news is that there are numerous
ways for both sexes to make themselves more attractive.

If that were true we probably wouldn't exist. Humankind thrives because we are driven by 200 000yrs of instinct to find the best mate so we can raise strong offspring. All of our male ancestors were able to outrun/outsmart the Wooly Mammoth while our female ancestors were resilient and clever enough to nurture and raise strong kids. The drive to attract a good mate is what makes us take care of our physique, learn manners, study, get good jobs etc.

The ones in trouble are the ones whose game extends to nothing further than "Send pics of bobs and vagene?" or fat, angry internet trolls who're upset that hot girls don't go for "Nice guys like him".

Not to sound cold, but I can't feel sympathy for most grown men who can't find someone. While some have more than others, I believe almost every guy has a certain amount of drive to get what he wants or make things happen for him. The entitled ones who refuse to make an effort and opt to just blame society or others because they can't get laid have put themselves in that position and nature is doing what it does to keep their bitch genes out of the pool.

Nature isn't kind, but it is fair.

Why do I always get looks of irritation whenever someone asks me where I'm partying and I tell them that I'm not?

Never fails, I'm in a daiso or something, someone approaches me asking for directions for somewhere, and after I give it to them they ask me where I'm partying. Then they get all pissy-faced when I tell them that I'm going home.

****** hell, dude, I'm wearing an oversized shirt with a bleach stain on it and yoga pants and sneakers. Does it look like I'm about to go party? Wtf.

Is "where are you partying?" code for something here? maybe some new young-people lingo? :O

Hangook still hasn't gone to China, Tyler still the world's biggest virtue signalling soyboy and Chinguetti kool aid manning through the wall with her 700th post about how hot she is and that men can't resist hitting on her.

Nah, it's the same here as it is back home as far as I know, they're either just hoping you'll give them an "in" to hook up with you (pretty much guaranteed that's what they want if it's a Korean man), or they're not from around the area and are hoping you'll give them the details for some good partying somewhere.

Either way, I'm the wrong person to be asking, lol. It's always the creepiest dudes at the most inappropriate times, too. Anyway, no worries, I always have my trusty shank on me, thanks for the looking out!

So, what I'm getting out of this is that the ladies in yoga pants in Daiso are down to party.  Good to know.  I'm not sure I've ever stepped into one of those places.  That's going to change this weekend, fer sure eh.
