you know you don't physically have to "go" to the library right?

Most colleges these days have an online library which you can log into remotely and search their archives, and other sources like JSTOR.

Does your college not have this? Is it in the stone age?


Calls public stupid, but doesn't know how to use online library services.

I had this in school and that was a few years back. I figure it's pretty much mainstream now.

I don't dislike him and would probably buy him a beer (or more likely a white wine spritzer) if I met him in person. However, I think he represents a lot of what is wrong with the general electorate.

A Kool-Aid Jammer would suit him just dandy.

ok so i read the whole thing (except page 13???), btw i have beagles too lol,
and seriously that is the funniest shlt ive read in a while. halfway through i
was thinking, man this fvcking kids absolutely fvcking retarded and deserves
everything he gets. but then at the end he came through. whether it was
true or not it came off (to me) like he thought about that, and realized the
deepness of his d-baggery. now i feel like either hes the greatest troll ever,
or hes deeply misguided, but at least honest/unfiltered.


marshmello: id buy you a Jammer (but id go into great detail about how your entire world view is completely invalid while you drank it)

Pg 13 is unavailable because someone pi'd it.

And here's part 2 (shorter). Read this too. It illustrates how Marshy comes to terms with his views and his unfiltered honesty.

So let me get this straight. You are saying thank you to Evolved who thinks your views are incredibly flawed?

Is that an admission?

lol

I appreciate the gesture to buy me a beer and/or Kool-aid because he doesn't hate me.

Still waiting for a response to the figures I calculated on the increased rate of decline post 1969 from the chart you posted...

you know, it's ok for you to say, and admit, you don't know. I'd have more respect for you if you did.

p.s.

I don't hate you, you just make things too easy.

If it's tl/dr, it brings up the point of why the data collected by BLS is flawed. It mainly focuses on the fact that things change over time and that only 40% of workplace deaths are actually related to the job, such as falling into a machine. So no, OSHA is not necessary nor has it done anything.
