The Man with the Laughs





Gooooooooood-byyyyyyye Vietnaaaaam! That's right, I'm history... I'm outta here. I got the lucky ticket home, baby. Rollin, rollin, rollin'... keep them wagons rollin', rawhide! Yeah, that's right... the final Adrian Cronauer broadcast... and this one is brought to you by our friends at the Pentagon. Remember the people who brought you Korea? That's right, the U.S. Army. If it's being done correctly, here or abroad, it's probably not being done by the Army.







In honor of Robin Williams, I've decided to forsake the rules and simple post a lot of what made him special to us: his humor and ability to make us laugh!!


Genie: [turns into a cheerleader] Rick 'em, rack 'em, rock 'em, rake! Stick that sword into that snake!
Jafar: You stay out of this!
Genie: [Weakly] Jafar, Jafar, he's our man; if he can't do it, great!

When Christopher Reeve was in the hospital after his accident, Robin came to visit him. Reeve said this about that surprise visit:
Then, at an especially bleak moment, the door flew open and in hurried a squat fellow with a blue scrub hat and a yellow surgical gown and glasses, speaking in a Russian accent. He announced that he was my proctologist, and that he had to examine me immediately...it was Robin Williams...for the first time since the accident, I laughed. My old friend had helped me know that somehow I was going to be okay.
When Stephan Spielberg was filming "Schindler's List", Robin would call him to cheer him up. I think I only called him once, maybe twice. I called him when I was representing People for the Valdheimers Association. A society devoted to helping raise money to help older Germans who had forgotten everything before 1945. I remember him laughing and going 'thank you.'"

I like the Job-Hunting Helix.

To get a job, you need experience.

To get experience, you need a job.

The employers seek young people with experience.
They turn away old people with lots of experience.

The few young people that do get lucky and get into a new job, invariably leave for a better job (now that they have experience) within 3-5 years, creating an opening once again, that cannot be readily filled.

Return to the bottom of the spiral.

It's the same scenario where I live in Florida. I have a friend who (if I remember right) has a degree in law and criminal science but can't get a job with the county or anywhere else in the field because she doesn't have experience and she can't get any experience until she works a job relevant to the field. (-_-)

I'm really curious as to how this ridiculous paradox came about. Is it a consequence of the global economy or has it always occurred and we never noticed it until now?

My guess is that its a combination of the need for specialisation in jobs, combined with an enlarging population, but slowing economies and industries in the western world which leaves less jobs. Oh how the days of full employment must have been good/cool....

In the law field, it's also a product of ever-increasing numbers of graduates without an equivalent level of growth in job openings. The market is saturated, and employers can pick and choose. This, unfortunately, tends to mean that they exclude lots of people somewhat arbitrarily.

If it goes a week or more since one's last post, then a subsequent post, even consecutive, does not count as a double. There, decided.

Oh wait, you all should hvae your say as well. I may or may not abide by that, but I can propose to try. All for?
I veto the motion. No double posts ever. It's a matter of principle I say.

... or something.
I will try to think of something to say.

Principles are fine things, until something dies because of it.

I do not want this thread to die. So if the principle is going to cause its death, I apply my own principle to keep it alive.

Besdies, that keeps the argument going, which in turn keeps the thread alive. Win win.

Also, if you disagree, you must post to say that, and again the thread remains alive.

Ha ha, win win win win.

Double posts with a week long furlough in between are ok in by book. Terikel has been doing it for a while anyway- and if you cant enforce a ban on it, may as well legalize it (It worked with pot anyway)...

Finding a job as a young person isn't always difficult, it seems to depend entirely on what field you're in.

My partner is a social worker. She found work within a week of graduating at a disability care company, without any experience of course. She makes very good money too; Demand for people like her is insanely high down under.

Meanwhile I'm working on a physics/pure mathematics double major. I might as well resign myself to life as a NEET now.

To be honest I was very surprised to find people still posting here, I assumed that everyone would have moved on at least to another forum if not for good. What keeps you all coming back?

This is true. We live in constant fear of what Terikel will do to us if we attempt to leave...

Honestly though, I have a ton of fond memories of this place and I made many great friends in my time here. Might not be as active as it once was, but I still enjoy stopping by and "patrolling the halls" so to speak

I am quite sure this holiday is driven by millions of children demanding candy or they will be little Vikings and go on a rampage.

So we pay them candy and they go away happy.

Until the Dentist comes.

On a side note, i am almost done my under-graduate degree at university. Feels rather anti-climatic.

Eh, a bit. Trump is bad enough but Clinton is even worse. I feel we're all equally screwed no matter who gets in, just in different ways depending on the winner.



About job experience, yes that is very frustrating. The only thing that could give experience are internships in the case of social science graduates but that doesn't help put food on the table.
