Comment Thankfully not all movies are made like this (Score -1) 384

I just watched Upstream Color from Shane Carruth, just like the other movie I had watched of him (primer) it doesn't follow the strict narrative structure hollywood seems to have enclosed itself, and they are harder to understand because of that. Still unlike other indie movies they actually make sense in the end.

Comment This is surprising (Score -1) 1103

I'm Mexican, In my last job my employer (big consultancy firm) gave a normal debit card with no minimum balance and they took care of everything, after no longer using it for 6 months the bank sent me and email saying they were very sorry but they had to cancel my account because it didn't show any movement (or balance) for half a year, none of this had any cost for me. My current employer (University) pays me through direct deposit, I use a basic debit account that pays very little interest and requires no minimum balance (all banks are required by law to have such a product), I had to setup the card for my self but it was very straight forward and easy. I'm amazed that in the U.S. employers use this kind of gimmick to save money. Of course Payroll processing and paying generates overhead costs (and banks never do anything for free) but I believe it is always taken for granted that the employers are responsible for those, reading what commentators from Europe say apparently this is also a common expectation overseas, specially when developing economies also behave this way.

Idiots have been, are and will always be a bigger issue to economy and social order than homosexuals. Turing was gay and without his work computer industry might not exists at all. I know you are a just a troll but behind your juvenile stupidity there is a shimmer of your opinion, there always is in every troll post, and is always funny to crush your biased uninformed views of the world.
