Oh. You think commoners have access to Big Data. Imaginary property will actually resemble property when it's undistributed.

But this isn't about Frank down the street. Precedent and protocol should be determined by more than your minisemiquasimicrocosm. If you can't see the big picture - a perspective that's better delivered by separating The Message and the identity that happened to write it - then defer to those who will think beyond themselves.

> replenishing the fund for future investments
Obviously the "financial services firm" expects ROI and then some, and the money comes from proles. Oh how grateful we are for money-shuffling middlemen.

The silver-lining, if this is done correctly (lol), is that it'd leech off salaries that live comfortably anyway.

Market forces caused it.

Expected obsolescence, first-party vendors, privatized repair, they were born of boon, they were born of bounty. The system deepens the black - why else would it conceive, grow, and circulate, Mr/Mrs Rational Economist? I'm not just being cute; market forces caused it. You're a dumbfuck or a shill for some agenda you won't understand anyway.

Don't care about demanding a single standard, reasonable enough on the surface claims, boondoggle away.

More concerned about legal aid going where it's needed. Particularly in today's world of arbitrary enforcement and arbitrary judgement. Particularly when those who aren't Our Betters have shit support and shit access.

That is a game? Okay, here is an opera.

Just a heads up, I'm going to be a bitch for the duration. I did pay for MY ticket, you know. The fact that I'm fucking with everyone else's experience is irrelevant to my entitled behavior. The world should adapt to me, not the other way around.

Hmm. I sense a lack of imagination. I'll be more specific: I'm going to show up wearing a tank top and sweatpants that say JUICY, chain smoke, talk loudly on my phone, make faux-clever remarks (you're obviously familiar with these) about the performance/performers, get up to pee about eight times (my bladder will be empty during intermissions ofc), and for the cherry on top, complain about someone else's child in attendance at a formal, cultured, adult event.

Thanks for ensuring "flappy crush casuals" remains a valid means of identifying incompetent undesirables that no one wants at their opera. Er, deathmatch.

It can. If the robo-frycook is $9/h and minimum wage is $8/h, everything is fine.

Robo at $8.01/h, everything is fine.

Robo at $7.99/h, everyone is fired. Overnight. And I realize that's just reasonable behavior for a rational business.

Millions of "frycooks" (did you think I was only talking about ONE job?) suddenly applying elsewhere, except there is no elsewhere left.
