#2873151 Man Fired for Posting about Homophones

Posted by Delhommey on 01 August 2014 - 02:31 PM


Self-described “social media specialist and content provider” Tim Torkildson recounted the firing in a personal blog post, which was subsequently picked up by The Salt Lake Tribune and other outlets. According to that account, Nomen Global owner Clarke Woodger was concerned that a post about homophones—words that sound the same but are defined differently—meant the school would be “associated with homosexuality.”


“He called me into the conference room, and he said, ‘We’re going to let you go,’” Torkildson told Newsweek. “[He said] this blog on homophones is the last straw. You can’t be trusted. I can’t trust you to write a regular blog.”


Torkildson denied that he was accused outright of promoting a “gay agenda.”

“No, that’s all been distorted,” he said. “His [Woodger’s] words to me were, ‘Some people might think that a blog on homophones has something to do with homosexuality.’ And that’s as far as he went on that. He said he hadn’t looked the word up, and then he realized what it was. His objection mainly was he thought the students at the school would not understand. And they would become offended or think the school would have some kind of gay agenda.”




Sounds like a Which Hunt

Doubling your excess capital takes the same amount of effort rich or poor. It's what you start with that makes the biggest difference

Added an important clarification.

I asked a very simple question, you wanted to downplay the severity of the issue by using %'s rather than answering the question.

The answer, is no other country...that I can find has welcomed that many 3rd World "refugees" across their border.

I don't think that we can just send them back as many have claimed, I do however think that this is a bigger issue than many on the left are making it out to be.

Please tell me this is an act...


I mean, really?

#2867402 First Take Discusses A Woman's Responsibility To Avoid Being Beaten

Posted by Delhommey on 28 July 2014 - 09:32 AM

I'm feeling feisty this morning and maybe a little out of my mind.  I didn't read their comments but I personally don't think hitting a women is any different than hitting a man and I'm anti-hitting anyone for the most part.


All that being sad, some people (men and women) get out of control and start acting a fool, saying things and doing things that purposely pushes peoples buttons, when acting that way they shouldn't be so naive to think their actions and words aren't going to bring about some consequences. Point is if you really don't want to get punched in the face there are some things you can do or avoid doing to help keep this from happening. 


Maaaaaybe can see this with a slap. However, I can see no circumstance where a person says something worthy of a full on Mike Tyson's Punch Out uppercut in the middle of public, especially when said person has no chance of fighting back.

Only thing moronic in this thread us you.

Please enlighten us on how getting a degree then and now is so different. Damn you really have to be a complete and utter disappointment to your parents.




Let me know if you need help interpreting these. I'm pretty used to explaining things to the corporate elderly.


This is something known as a "cost/benefit analysis"

They are illegal here, at this moment, however I will re-word the question so maybe I can get a legitimate answer from someone on this board on either side of the fight.



Is there another 1st World country that would accept 57 thousand plus refugees from 3rd World countries?


If so, when has this happened in the last 100 years, and how did they handle the situation?


Again, opening with biases. 57,000 sure sounds impressive, until you take into account that we have 314,000,000 people roughly. 


57,000 is only .02% of the US Population. That means for Canada (population: 34.88 mil) to take on the same relative amount, they'd have to take in 6,333 people.


Canada took in 20,461 refugees in 2012 alone. Relatively they took in over three times the amount you're quoting as a difficult number.



#2864380 On the Jonathan Stewart cap hit talk....

Posted by Delhommey on 25 July 2014 - 12:09 PM

Stewart was arguably Hurney's greatest mistake and showed how badly Marty could misread the market.


In one of the deepest RB drafts in recent memory when RB had started to become severely devalued, Marty Hurney drafted a RB with the 13th pick. Meanwhile T was such a huge need he traded back into the first round to get one. That, of course, started the 2 year cycle of doom where we had no 1st rounders and nothing to show for it in the end.

Let's take a look at my "opportunities":


Neither of my parents were college graduates

My parents did not pay a penny of my college education

I worked 3 jobs (over 40 hrs a week to not have big school loans) and carried a full load

I chose a school where I could like at home to save on expenses

I chose a degree where it offered a good career opportunity


Please explain how I had all of these opportunities that you and others didn't.


You make the assertion that you just can't do it....I make the assertion that you can't do it without putting in the work and effort.


Plain and simple...I decided at a young age that an education was the answer to improving my life.  Not my fault that you didn't.


I could teach a class on cognitive biases with print outs of your posts replacing the text book.
