  1. This is 100% a political move. JT will have the majority of the workforce in favour of another stat, he can add another feather to his social justice cap, and if the conservatives oppose this he can call them racist.
  2. “Open and transparent government”
  3. PlayStation 4 Thread

    I’ve never played any of the God of War games. If I jumped in with the newest one would I feel lost? With the uncharted series, I liked the 2nd best for the single player and the 3rd for multiplayer. I thought uncharted 4 was a step back... still good but not as good. I still can’t understand why they got rid of grenade throwback, that was a pretty key addition in U3.
  4. What Are You Currently Playing?

    I’ve given in and picked up a copy of No Man’s Sky. Pretty fun game overall if you’re in to slow-paced explore and collect type games. I’m caught in a bit of a glitch right now that’s preventing me from getting out if my first system (no anti-matter or anti-matter blueprint for those of you who know how the game works). I’m trying to decide whether to start a new game or keep grinding for the necessary stuff to get on to other planets.
  5. Dalhousie racially based hiring

    Because when you’re going under the knife your biggest concern is, “do these surgeons represent a sufficiently ethnically diverse cross-section of my community?” If that’s not your priority, you just might be racist.
  6. Dalhousie racially based hiring

    I gave this comment a few read-throughs and I’m still not quite sure why you seem to see a contradiction @Toews. Flip the races in each case and the PC world would be in uproar. What would your thoughts be if you saw a job application that stated “non-whites need not apply”? Or if the lead roles in the new Black Panther movie went to white people? If you’re offended by a bias towards white people but not offended by a bias against white people, might I introduce you to the concept of hypocrisy?
  7. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/nova-scotia/dalhousie-university-recruitment-management-racially-visible-indigenous-1.4531723 “Dalhousie University is restricting its search for a new senior position to racially visible and Indigenous candidates in an effort to make the institution more diverse.” I believe “racially visible” is newspeak for “not white.” Because racial discrimination against white people is a celebration of diversity. Because it’s 2018. Thoughts? Am I an old man sitting on my porch telling the young progressives to get off my lawn? This reminds me of Dear Leader Justin and his refusal to hire men in order to achieve a balanced cabinet. When is discrimination OK?
  8. I'll wait till it comes out on Netflix

    A century ago when segregation was a thing, this sort of statement would have been bold. Today it's just politically correct racial profiling. Welcome to our progressive society!
  9. But, but - my MBA?!!?

    11 posts in and we've hit politics and religion. Well done boys.
  10. What Are You Currently Reading?

    Fun little trilogy. The next two books are solid and they're pretty light reading, I'd suggest getting through them before delving into George RR Martin's unfinished behemoth.
  11. What Are You Currently Reading?

    Had anyone read the Broken Earth trilogy by N. K. Jemisin? It intrigues me, the first two books won awards and the third book was released this month. I'm a sucker for good Sci-fi
  12. confessions

    I proofread, correct, re-word and re-proofread every email I send at work. I know I put way too much time into it , but it still bugs me every time I get a typo-ridden run-on sentence back as a reply. Confession #2: I proofread, corrected, and re-worded this post and I will proofread it again before I post it.
  13. Suggest me something to watch on Netflix

    Dark Matter - a sci-fi series about a group of people who wake up on a spaceship with no memories of who they are or what they're doing. If you liked Firefly give this one a shot. If you like sci-fi and haven't watched Firefly, watch Firefly. Gotham - the early days of Commissioner Gordon from the Batman universe. It feels like a cop show set in a comic book. Pretty entertaining. Indie Game, The Movie - documentary about a few indie game developers. I really enjoyed this one. It shows the struggles, triumphs and failures of people as they invest their lives into their passion.
  14. what are your most positive character traits?

    I was never one to hold a grudge. My father held grudges. I'll always hate him for that.
