So I don' take no acetomenophane
there are a lot of people who won't give up their national sovereignty to a world government (even if it's a democratic one).
Sounds good until you get to the details. What does a democratic world government look like? Each nation gets one vote = North and South America are fucked. Each human gets one vote = China tells everyone what to do.
How come proven liars such as Pelosi and Feinstein keep on getting re-elected despite all the goddamn things that they have done? Are the USian voters so damn stupid?
You UKians should realize that it is because their opponents are even worse.
British and French policymakers couldn't sell their peoples on a war in 1936
It's hard to convince people to go back to war when many of them are still healing from the last one.
Too many people wanted to vouch for my skills.
This is what makes LinkedIn 'references' bullshit. People have recommended me for skills they can't possibly know I even have. It devalues the whole system.

Our suspense was short; for a break up soon took place in the crowd, and the people came streaming out looking flushed and hot, and bringing a quantity of bad air with them.

We stood aside, watching for any countenance we knew; and presently great bundles of paper began to be carried outâ"bundles in bags, bundles too large to be got into any bags, immense masses of papers of all shapes and no shapes, which the bearers staggered under, and threw down for the time being, anyhow, on the Hall pavement, while they went back to bring out more. Even these clerks were laughing. We glanced at the papers, and seeing Jarndyce and Jarndyce everywhere, asked an official-looking person who was standing in the midst of them, whether the cause was over. "Yes," he said; "it was all up with it at last!" and burst out laughing too.
"Mr. Kenge," said Allan, appearing enlightened all in a moment. "Excuse me, our time presses. Do I understand that the whole estate is found to have been absorbed in costs?"
"Hem! I believe so," returned Mr. Kenge. "Mr. Vholes, what do you say?"
"I believe so," said Mr. Vholes.
"And that thus the suit lapses and melts away?"
"Probably," returned Mr. Kenge. "Mr. Vholes?"
"Probably," said Mr. Vholes.
we get to have this discussion on slashdot at least twice a year!
Good thing, too - t's the only way I remember to set my clocks.
