You must not ever have been to Chicago.
The patterning comes from young children not challenging their parents' misbehavior, for genetic fear of being left to starve on a hillside.
That is one of the silliest things I've read in quite some time. Unless you were going for Funny, in which case it's not. Thanks!
You've never experienced the touch of a woman other than your mother, have you?
It has become a running joke at the office. They are buggy, shitty, and mostly sitting in drawers.
Whether or not you approve of the über-casual dress code, that's still not a very nice thing to say about your co-workers.
The guys at MS are professional engineers--they may have different philosophies or coding styles or project priorities than you do, but they're not slowing things down in order to make you buy the next product.
That's right--they're professionals who are coding what they get told to code.
And you might not like MS, but they haven't been a disreputable company for decades.
I must have missed that. My Bing-fu is a bit weak at the moment--perhaps you can post a link to a news article or something showing me when they started being reputable?
ProTip: If you didn't spend so much time trying to show us what a small-minded jerk you're capable of being, and actually paid attention to what you're responding to, you'd look a lot less stupid.
You are not Hammurabi, and you do not get to choose who lives and who dies. I hope.
Would you care for some sauce to go with that chip on your shoulder? Geeez.
It wasn't common knowledge to me, and I do care.
It is considered proper--even courteous--to supply citations when making a claim, and not to get in a snit when someone asks you for them in a nice way.
Thanks for the links, they make interesting reading.
Guess I'm not a "usual" Swedish worker, then, because I don't get any O/T. But I do get 30 days paid vacation instead of 25, which suits me fine.
"Decease" usually implies that the subject didn't survive.
Tagalog and Bahasa Malaysia/Indonesia aren't "most languages".
That being said, I should have thought of the latter myself.
Most languages can be written with English characters (ie. plain latin).
Name a language written with Latin characters (other than English) that does not use any special characters or diacritical marks whatsoever.
(Even English requires extensions to the Latin character set. which originally had no "U", "J", or "W". )
It is being diluted by being used as a generic reference to large-screen movies.
You keep making this assertion but you have yet to prove it.
Let's assume the customer thinks IMAX is awesome. Given that he's buying X because it was compared favourably with IMAX, this is reasonable. Let's say product X turns out to be crap. The customer's reaction is likely to be something like, "This is a piece of crap--the experience is in no way comparable to what IMAX does for films." This, too, is reasonable.
He is not going to decide of a sudden that IMAX has suddenly turned to crap, too, which is what you seem to think, even though this is not reasonable.
