I finished Broken Age this morning. I have been working my way through Dark Souls on PC, but not really trying too hard. Slogging my way through the opening of Assassins creed 3. Might start papers, please.

People are really ripping Ken Ham to shreds in here. I just like to hear opposing opinions.

Okay. I believe that an infinite, eternal and unchangeable God created the universe and all that it contains or ever would contain in a mere 6 days. I believe that this same powerful God created a way for redemption when our father and mother (Adam & Eve) decided they didn't need God anymore. Since then, He has been working throughout history to bring people to himself that he might be worshiped forever by these people. I confess this creed every Sunday, and every word influences my every day life.

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth:

and in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord,

who was conceived by the Holy Ghost,

born of the virgin Mary,

suffered under Pontius Pilate

was crucified, dead and buried:

He descended into hell;

the third day he rose again from the dead;

He ascended into heaven,

and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;

from there He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Ghost;

the holy catholic church;

the communion of saints;

the forgiveness of sins;

the resurrection of the body;

and the life everlasting.

amen.

God and His word translated into English over the course of three-to-four thousand years are my only rule for truth and life. I'm not joking, and I am not swayed by Bill's doubt about the validity of such words. Jehovah, God the Father Almighty, is able and mighty to keep His words from erring one inch. You see, it is God that I lean on for truth and not the mind of a finite man or even an infinite number of finite minds.

To all of you normal people out there, I sound crazy. However, I am being absolutely truthful when I say that I wholeheartedly believe what I wrote above.

This debate is simply about two opposing fundamental assumptions. Neither mind will change as long as their assumptions are not challenged.

Bill Nye believes that observation is the ultimate authority on truth. Meanwhile, Ken Hamm believes that the Bible is the ultimate authority on truth.

I love aria of sorrow, but the solar eclipse thing never really bothered me.

Darkadia hooks into the giant bomb database and is a pretty cool piece of software.

I think the insistence that Josh Mattingly change his nature and not be horrible is asking too much of the man. Maybe he should be fired, and maybe [unnamed game developer] shouldn't insist on trying to steer an inappropriate conversation back to appropriate territory and instead just publicly blacklist the guy.

People can and will do very bad things, and insisting that they don't behave badly without shaming them doesn't work.

You're like the worst hiring person ever. Is your business education from the 50's. Your country has super low 18-25 employment for a reason.

Please tell me how I can do it better.

Maybe I should take a chance on training a new flake every 6 months because their parents told them they have ADHD and they deserve better because they are a special flower?

In case you missed it, I received 20 great resumes which I will go over in more detail, there are good people out there and like I said already not every company is going to be right for you but you should be aware of how your resume can be viewed.

Would you rather have people lie? If a company wants employee retention, they should pay a competitive wage, offer benefits, and have a great work place. Younger people jump from shit job to shit job because they have no other option. Shit companies like yours would rather hire desperate old people who will take any job (and age does not mean they are good in any capacity) then someone who is younger, more educated and trying to find a career, not a job. It's despicable, really.

You are making a lot of assumptions here, we do have benefits, $14 is competitive for the position, almost everyone working here has been here for more than 5 years, this position is a new job that we created for someone.

I think you are way off base.

$14 is not competitive. Adjusting for cost of living. $14 is what minimum wage should be in lower cost of living states.

Most companies adjust pay for a two income household.

Anyway, I agree with the OP. Sticking around is what you need to do if you want a career and not a job.

"I feel a little slimy dealing with it and thinking in these terms. I especially feel a little slimy about thinking about how we’ve 'trained' our customers. They’re just clapping their fins together and throwing money at us!"

Kay, I just won't buy any more video games. Have fun game industry!
