Foreign dependencies because multinational companies wnat to make business in those countries, too. Most countries demand that a part of your company is in that country if you want to sell something there. (Or at least a local distributor who is responsible for what is imported and sold)

It's tax reasons why those companies exist in Ireland, and not in France or Germany.

Fuck man, stop giving us this shitty excuse!

Under US laws Google has to pay *A SHITLOAD OF TAXES* and what Google did?

Google shifted its money, via accounting, around the world, to Ireland, to Luxembourg, to many other tax havens, so that it doesn't need to pay those taxes

No. Obviously Google hasn't to pay a "shitload of taxes" as US (and other countries) laws allowed them to legally shift their money around the world.

You're mixing that up with "should have to pay"

Right.

But it's still no defense for armed robbery. "I asked him for his money or his life. He had the free choice and gave me the money voluntarily"....

So, how much harm is done by a "or else find yourself a new job" depends on the given individual. To some it's only a "...or else switch to another employer" but for some it's "...or else become homeless and die on the street like a dog"

Wow. Great. So you've proven that even exact statistics can't predict the outcome of a single event.

Yes, not everyone not vaccacinated will get catch a disease, yes, there are possible side effects and not everyone vaccacinated is completly immune. Which is espescially obvious as you even mention the fast mutating flu as an example.

From here on, it's statistics and personal risk analysis. I, for example, am pro-vacc, but don't get flu shots. I'm in no risk group for flu complications, I'm in no risk group for catching the flu (office worker, hardly ever in a group of people), too lazy to make an appointment so I'm not taking the (small) risk of side effects for something that not even protects for a whole flu season. (due to the named high mutation rate)

On the other hand, I got all other recommended shots. 5 or 10 years protection from even nastier diseases is worth the small side-effects-risk. (To me)

That would be completly different if I was working as teacher, cashier or whatever.

I've got a WAIS 3 combined cognitive function test score of over 180 (that's all you need to know),

Guess that's combined 3 IQ tests with a result of 60 each...

Computer programmers do it byte by byte.

Working...
