So I make about $120 a day.

That $120 is for hours worked between 9am and 5:30pm, while usually staying behind until 6. I am required to Maintain, and add products to a website, and sell products.

It also includes the following:

  • knowing the ins and outs of the complex operation and nature of Amplifiers, in classes A, A-B, B, D, and XD and the differences between them
  • Knowing how digital to analog converters work, what characteristics each of them have, including their operations, filter modes, inputs and outputs, sample rate and bit depth compatibility, what model of DAC chip each of them have, the type of power supply on board, how Synchronous and Asynchronous DAC’s are different, and so on.
  • Knowing the characteristics, price, power handling, construction, construction location, material composition, amplifier pairing, cable pairing, design location and warranty duration of speakers ranging from $50 to $18000.
  • Explaining which TV’s are different, and why they are different
  • Putting it in simple enough terms that imbeciles with the intelligence of 3 year old mentally handicapped children could understand.
  • Move, Pack, Unpack, Wrap, and Lift products up to 78kg (tv’s) or 98kg’s (speaker packages).
  • Tetris boxes into peoples cars.
  • Know everything about everything always.
  • Drop what I am doing at ANY MOMENT, to assist one of the other staff who cant plug something into a computer.
  • Do a single task to completion, while I am given numerous tasks to complete while I am in the process of the first task, and then get bitched at that the first thing isn’t done.
  • Perform deliveries of products to nearby suburbs out of work time in my own hours, at my own fuel expense.
  • Expect to find solutions to problems existing in a set up of 20+ different home theater receivers with many hundreds of meters of different cables plugged into a fucking rats nest of connector boards, loose wires, and electrified shelves WHILE I am serving at least 2 customers at a time, offering support over the phone, getting stock for any of the other staff, cleaning the entire shop, and then getting bitched at for not finishing the first task.
  • Fetch lunch for everyone, and get bitched at that whatever they ordered from different shops is wrong because they explained it to me wrong.
  • Create website information in the most inefficient way possible because thats how the boss wants it.
  • Get bitched at by everyone in the shop that I am not doing things right, when I could point out many MANY things they do which just do not make sense in the slightest only to get scoffed at.
  • Get avoided by customers because I am “Young” and “inexperienced”, even though they are asking about a product that they need education in to use which ALL the other staff do not know how to operate.
  • Explain to imbecilic old Greek men how to operate a remote to a Greek TV internet box, when they refuse to speak english, or just refuse to try to understand that they NEED THE FUCKING INTERNET!
  • Explain to the Asians that NO I WILL NOT MATCH A PRICE ON AMAZON WHICH IS CHEAPER THAN OUR COST PRICE BECAUSE ITS AN ILLEGITIMATE KNOCK OFF.
  • Explain to the same Asians that NO THAT KARAOKE SYSTEM WILL DESTROY YOUR $200 LG SURROUND SOUND SYSTEM YOU IDIOT.
  • Vacuum the shop EVERY DAY (only me)
  • Dust the shop (only me again)
  • Demonstrate any of the HUNDREDS of products while memorizing its price, specifications, features, warranty, dimensions, and available colours.
  • Educate customers on how to get the best out of their digital audio to find they.
  • Move stock customers have just purchased to their car, weighing over 100kg sometimes.
  • Make ALL the coffees.
  • Learn about every new product we may get.
  • Refer customers with faulty products to specific repairers.
  • Take out the 3 bins weekly, cut up all the cardboard boxes and fit as much as I can in the recycling.
  • Chase up information with several other companies about one customers problem.
  • Get yelled at for not knowing about something that happened when I wasn’t there
  • Deal with all my recurring anxiety, depression and self consciousness

Not getting paid enough for this shit! If I were being paid 40-60 buck an hour I’d put up with it, but this is many times more stress than most jobs that require less knowledge pay many times more.

Feminazi’s, Tumblr, and /b/

So… a 3am Trawl on /b/ for something funny to end my night. I come across this Tumblr user who decided to post in /b/.

US students will be able to shield themselves during school shootings with the latest in body armour, the Bodyguard Blanket
http://goo.gl/WwvECT
Are fucking kidding me? I have been sitting at home and constantly watching the news after the events of yesterday. For those of you who are wondering, I am a junior at REYNOLDS HIGH SCHOOL! I was there when the shooter kept running in the halls trying to open the doors and get in. I was there in the dark praying and crying while my librarian kept saying ” they’ll have to kill me before they touch my kids” I have known her for three years, her determination to keep us safe broke her heart. Seeing this, that little children need protection in school. Are we sending kids to a battlefield? I have three little brothers ranging from 5-10, and still people have the nerve to speak about the second amendment? Really? I can’t even type anymore. I’m so disgusted and frustrated. When will you realize that it’s important to have gun control? When a shooter is pointing a gun at your child? Is that when you’ll realize that guns aren’t something to be kept around. People say it’s a free country but honesty, this country is more oppressed and diseased than any other country.

Show me ONE instance where gun control and gun free zones prevented school shootings.



Let me tell you guys a story. In 1996, in a little town in Australia called Port Arthur, a gunman killed 35 and injured 23. This place was a tourist attraction, with plenty of visitors and locals going about their business. 35 people died.That’s 35 marriages, anniversaries, birthdays or uni degrees. 35 people left Port Arthur in body bags.At the time, we had a pretty conservative government, and the Prime Minister at the time (in hindsight) was kind of a dick. But within two weeks of the shooting, Howard instituted a massive reform and buyback of all firearms. 
But it must be a statistical flaw, you say, there weren’t that many massacres before 1996, right? No, WRONG. In the eighteen years leading up to Port Arthur, there had been 13 mass shootings. 
But April, you ask, this couldn’t possibly have worked could it? Wouldn’t it only have reduced the mass shootings? WRONG.Since 1996, there have been ZERO mass shootings. That’s right, ZERO. FUCKING ZILCH. There have been scattered homicides, however:
How many schools have been raided and children murdered? NONE.How many film buffs have been murdered in their seats? NONE.How many innocent lives have been lost to the barrel of a gun? NONE.
On top of this, homicides involving the use of guns, and youth suicide involving the use of guns has declined dramatically, by up to 60%
Australia, however much the environment tries to kill you, is a safe haven, and you can walk the streets with 99% assurance that you won’t fall victim to a drive by shooting.
Your move, America.

I’d like to take a moment to correct some facts with the above, because while it has falsehoods in it, it undermines it’s own point:There has been one mass shooting since Port Arthur. 2 people died, 5 were injured. Huan Yun “Allen” Xiang walked into his classroom at Monash University, and opened fire. He was stopped while switching guns, because of the limit in ammo capacity on all guns owned by civilians in Australia.Also, the claim that no innocent lives have been lost to the barrel of a gun, is false. While there’s been no mass murders, there is still the occasional shooting death, however, they are isolated incidents. This doesn’t mean you can write them off, though.Also, of note, the American National Rifle Association, the NRA, released claims that violent crime in Australia increased because of these new laws. They were reprimanded, and accused of falsifying government statistics, by the Federal Attorney General. That’s right… The NRA literally made up fake statistics just to try to force their point across.

I’d like to add that the other night, a boy of 18 or so was shot because of a State of Origin (massive football game) argument. Gun control has helped. It didn’t eradicate the problem, but its pretty damn close. 
Every time I hear of another mass shooting in ‘Murica, all I can say to myself is “not this shit again!”

Watch the whole talk here»

This guy stopped watching porn — and he wants you to know why. Gender activist Ran Gavrieli felt that most of the images he saw in porn encouraged negative, even violent, attitudes toward women, despite a recent wave of feminist porn. So he pulled the plug, and found that his personal sex life and private fantasies became much more fulfilling.

In his talk at TEDxJaffa, he advocates for physically and emotionally-safe sex, as well as erotica that shows a wider range of fulfilling sexual experiences — including the intimacy of human connection, laughter, and touch. Watch his talk here.

it’s always important to look at everything critically

He has clearly been looking at the wrong porn. Amateur stuff is of (usually) loving couples wanting to expand their horizons (perhaps) and filming it. Its generally the best porn in general. Real sex. Not a performance, real sex… works way better than “oh baby, oh baby, stick your thick hard cock in my tight wet pussy. Do you like it? Oh yeah baby. Omg ur gonna make me cum” etc etc and so on

When are animals more important than humans?

When the animal is endangered of being wiped off the face of the fucking planet. Humans are over seven billion strong. The piping plover only has about 3,350 individuals. There are only 15,000 loggerhead sea turtles left. And the humpback chub is estimated to have only about 10,000 individuals.
Fetuses are not that fucking important.

A persons a person, pretty damn important. Every life counts. The life of those animals are just as important as a human life. A human life is as important as an animals life. Why not celebrate life instead of destroy it?

Well, if a fetus is a person, then they have to adhere to the same laws people do. That no one can use someone’s body without expressed and continuous permissions. Consent must be able to be revoked at all times or it is not consent. There is not a born person out there that can forcibly demand use of someone’s body and have it be legally sanctioned. 

There is not a born person. There are unborn children that have that right because the man and woman couldn’t keep their legs shut and did not want the responsibility of a child

At least you admit that forced pregnancy, to you, is punishment for someone that had sex you don’t approve of. (Sidebar, 61% of people who became pregnant were actively trying to prevent pregnancy. 73% cite inability to take time to be pregnant due to threats against their livelihood (job), education, or housing. Aaand 100% of this is not up to you. At all.) 

That post was directed towards the people that believe a woman has the right to abort because she doesn’t want a baby. Sorry for the harshness of it but I’ve been getting attacked quite a bit because of this post.

If someone does not want to remain pregnant or cannot remain pregnant, that is 100% up to them. They may discuss with their doctor and let their doctor help them decide, but it’s literally not up to ANYONE else. They have that right. It does not matter why they don’t want to or can’t. It just matters that they do not want to lend their body to another potential being. People are not incubators. It is not their duty or obligation to carry out a pregnancy if it is not in their best interest, lifestyle, health to do so. Case closed. 

Also, why is it so mind-boggling to people that just because some people may not even want kids, doesn’t mean they also want to be a nun/priest.
No one is obligated to pro-create and if someone chooses to opt out of having kids, who the fuck are you to tell them they can’t have sex? It’s none of your fucking business.

Took borod789 two tries before the “It’s your own fault you couldn’t keep your legs shut, I’m a sex-shaming piece of garbage” argument came out. How pro-life of you.

You know what? I am sick to death of this argument. The woman has the option. It should always be that way. A woman has the choice to have a child or not. I personally do not want kids, but Ill be fucking damned if I knock my girlfriend up and then we want an abortion (neither of us want kids), and have everyone know go into a fit of rage that the fetus is more important than whatever else her and I feel are important (like our sanity). I will be getting a vasectomy. I’m sure all the Pro-Birthers would be shitting themselves that I would be preventing any more ‘precious’ babies.
Also, the Pro-Life movement is an utter crock of shit. You are not Pro-life, you are Pro-Birth, there is a difference. I have heard so many “Pro-Life” Individuals say “Ill kill that bitch if she gets an abortion” or “An eye for an eye, they deserve to die”….. Pro life….. Well. fucking. done.
There are plenty of kids that need homes. I will not have kids of my own, I may adopt someday. I give more meaning to the life that already exists rather than creating more.
I may have ranted off in tangents, but I am in a shit mood, then this comes up on my dash.
