News Stories and Current Events / Re: Worker Shortages

Funny enough this is one political topic I don't feel like I know enough to even give an opinion on even though I'm currently one of the people currently unemployed.

For me, I'm just trying to hold out as long as I can to force the employers to raise wages even further or provide benefits. The extra unemployment  money I had gotten is still getting me through thanks to living with family, but it is about to go under 10k and at that point I need to start looking for work again. Trying to hold on till at least after the new year.

Just anecdotal at this point but I think many young people are delaying the traditional marriage/kids/job/mortgage lifestyle. Maybe forever. Youtube blogging, living in vans, couch surfing, living in a boat restore project, diamond hands stock gambling, basement dwelling in Mom's house...stuff like that. Doing the odd gig for money.

A lot of that has been going on forever. I know two people that did the living in a boat restore project, and just don't know that many people.

Just finished watching the new Dune. Thoroughly enjoyed it and think it was pretty faithful to the book with a few notable exceptions. It's probably been more 30 years since the last time I read the book though so it might not be a close to the original story as I remember.

Not the song I heard, but here is Regina Spektor singing in Russian... and it's like the language was composed just for acoustic music.

Well then, it's hardly a Bond Film at all!

I haven't seen No Time to Die.  I will when it comes out on DVD, but I have one question.  Does James Bond go to Morocco to meet that guy wearing a fez who is sits under a ceiling fan?  Can a Bond film be complete with out this port of call?  I can never remember why he has to visit that guy, but then I can never keep track of his travelog or why he goes where he does.  I think he travels around mostly for the casinos.

Nope, the closest No Time to Die has to a Middle Eastern flair is an opening scene filmed in Basilicata, Southern Italy (use to be part of the Abbasid Empire IIRC, so kinda counts?).

I think she was partly remembering that LeVay had written The Satanic Bible to disprove religion in general and the Devil in particular.
