Re: “Military Justice

One man's mercy killing is another man's execution without due process. Sorry Sir Hugo, can't agree with you on this one. No doubt Capt S was/is an excellent soldier, but what he did was morally and legally wrong. Hate to say it but I wonder (and this is not directed at you SH, just in general) whether he would have as much sympathy if he and his wife were not so damn hot looking.

Re: “Why post jobs when you can't get an interview?

Let's be clear, HR is obliged to post in certain organizations, usually government. If this is a government role, there is a reason why you are not hearing back; there are probably 20-50 other people who meet ALL the essential requirements of the role. They will only contact those who meet all the listed requirements. Expand your search beyond government.

Re: “Attention, Some Certain HRM Employers:

Hmm, did you ever think op, that maybe, just maybe, there are other jobs at that same employer that pay, oh, I don't know, $16-$20 per hour that you may get six months after working there? And that THOSE ones never get advertised, because they promote from within? Give it a try, nothing bad can come from it...and oh, you may actually gain some relevant work experience at the same time.

Re: “Single ladies seeking ladies

You're a girl in 2010 wanting to date other girls? What's so hard about just asking a girl that you like whether she wants to go out on a date or not? I mean, is being gay still a problem with young people today? Holy crap, I was a gay man in Halifax in the early '80's and in the closet, and only interested in non flamey guys. Talk about tough times getting a date.

Besides, girls don't bash do they? The worst that you get is a 'no thanks'; and guys, straight or gay, get that all the time. Get out there and ask!

Re: “Why does it have to cost so much to live in NS?

Actually it's not the fault of politicians, even though that's what you would like it to be. It's due to a culture of "that will do" and absent get-up-off-your-butt-and-work-hard attitudes that got us where we are today. What you are learning op is that the successful and hard working in this province get it in the end, because we pay pay pay, while the lazy just get by and do just fine, thank you very much. Until we get some new people here (who don't mind working hard) or change the people's mindset here, I'm afraid that nothing is going to change. There are too few hard working guys paying taxes versus too many lazy, to make it work. Signed: works hard, pays lots of taxes, and has lived here all their life.

Re: “Scurry away faster next time...

ok martym, yup, I live downtown and expect some noise. Heck, I probably create some of it too myself. But what I don't do, is come home from my job in one of those tour boats downtown at 2 in the morning, EVERY FRIGGIN DAY OF THE WEEK and sit outside getting drunk with my friends, and getting louder and louder when EVERY other neighbour around you has a job that they have to get up and go do the next morning. It's called showing just a little bit of courtesy and respect for your fellow humans that you share the space with. And if they do it again this summer I'm going to stand on their sidewalk every morning when I'm up at 7 a.m. to go to work and play bagpipe music at full volume at their house. That'l learn them!
