I woukd suffocate either way
Pay wise they are both at the opposite ends of the spectrum. I'd be a miner for the money but the dangerous and unhealthy conditions would deter me. So it's factory work for me.
I like manufacturing better than mining. Mines come and go, so miners never stay in the same place for long. A factory can run for generations.
I actually don't think I'd mind factory work if I was making things I liked like toys or cars or chocolate or robots, if just to make me feel less girly also. I'd never work at like a chemical plant or weapons plant. Just knowing things I make will one day kill people would haunt my dreams
You're a girl, there's nothing wrong with being girly. But yeah, I agree with what you said.
I don't like most girly things, I have an intense hatred of people seeing me as weak
See me as strong, see me as weak, whatever, it's your mind...
I just don't want people to be over protective of me. It makes me feel like no one takes me seriously. I also personally can't stand cooking and cleaning, but thats just me. Like really Why clean it'll just get dirty again? I pile all my stuff on a giant mountain in the corner of the room and say "That's that!"
Lets see what are other girly things I don't like. I hate spending time with makeup, unless its like punk makeup but lipstick makes me think prostitute or 70s disco queen (or modern transvestite which are really the same thing heh heh heh take that 1970s!) but in all seriousness, I don't want people to like tailor traditionally female things toward me which I find boring. I like model trains, and shooter games, and rollercoasters, and being sexual not prissy, and weaing baggy clothes and backwards hats and listening to punk. It's just me. I didn't even know that that stuff made me a tomboy until I was like 11 or so. Then I kinda embraced it like yeah...that does sound like me. I do collect dolls though but Idk if it counts as girly because I make web comics with them. Also i customize them to have mohawks and draw tattoos on them.
You like punk? What's your favorite punk track?
I think there are too many to narrow it down, but I'm a fan of Pull My Strings by the Dead Kennedys even though they only performed it once it was such a great FU moment and epic guitar solo, it was just the perfect coming together of things. The Ties were a nice touch too.
I also enjoy Rebel Girl by Bikini Kill, which pretty much describes me. I like I like Fucking too (that's a song name haha)
New York by the sex pistols was a pretty riveting track and nice guitar work at the end.
The Clash has a ton of goodies, Know your rights, their cover of pressure drop, and the stuff made by their band members afterwards like The Globe, or when strummer did his solo stuff he had some great songs like Ramshackle day parade, and Johnny Appleseed.
GG Allin had my favorite song to play when people annoy me called Don't Talk To me
Bratmobile has Fuck Your Fans which is just a tantric fit of rage I like to blast from my car when someone's (or the entire town) is pissing me off.
The Donnas have stop driving through my heart
And The Distillers, ohhh I love you Brody! I like Die on a Rope, Young Crazed Peeling, Coral Fang, fuck is there a distillers song I don't like
Also Offspring were my jam when i first got into punk. They got Come out and play, Kids aren't alright, Gone away, Go Far kid, Self Esteem, Gotta Get away, ahh fuck it Idk what offspring song I don't like!
How bout you?
I never got deeply into punk, but I played around with it a bit jamming with my friends.
NICE!! I'm surprised how of everyone here the only people I've found that even had a brush with punk (it seems) are you and Faceman? I'm shocked considering how anti corporate, anti conservative most punk bands are. Well except guttermouth.
I'm not so much anti-corporate as anti-crony-corporate. I'm an adult now, I see the need for business, but there has been some really shady shit done in the name of business, and I don't approve of that.
The first political figure who really got my attention was Ron Paul, if I had my way it would have been Paul facing off against Obama in '08 instead of McCain, but he was widely mocked and discredited by the usual suspects and McCain got the nomination instead.
I was inspired by Obama's words leading up to his election, but almost immediately afterwards it became obvious that all that talk was bullshit. I should have known, the usual suspects loved him.
Then Trump came along speaking out against the same agenda I'd been against for a decade or more, so I threw my support behind him. And how the usual suspects howl, but fuck them.
That's interesting. To me Trump embodies the corporate crony. He screws people out of money, he gives no shits about his employees, he wants to give more money to those who don't need it and less money to those who do, it's kinda like a bizarro superman character
I don't think that's a fair characterization, but you're entitled to your opinion. I would say this though, don't rely on what people tell you, go to the source and decide for yourself what to think because there's a lot of bullshit floating around right now.
Take that immigration restriction order, the press is acting like it's this horrible, draconian piece of legislation unfairly singling out and targeting Muslim immigrants, I read it and it isn't that at all, in fact it seems quite reasonable. I've heard people say it's the same thing Obama did in 2011, but Obama's bill was a joke, essentially it says that if someone has participated in acts of terrorism they should be kept out. Like duh. Trump's order is a lot more comprehensive in its approach, but the object is the same. Nowhere in the document do the words "Islam" or "Muslim" appear, so to call it a "Muslim ban" is to suggest that all dangerous people from those 7 countries are necessarily Muslims. That may or may not be true, I'm not sure, but the executive order isn't framed in those terms.
Why do we let the Saudis in? They are horrible people. They are not our friends and I'm sick of us ignoring their shit because they have dealings with us. FUCK SAUDI ARABIA
Second of all, I'm going based on several reports of his failed business ventures, how he sucked up all the money and left his shareholders to sink with the ship. Captain goes down with the ship not crew dumbass. You're a horrible leader
and if you choose to sink other people with it it means you are a horrible person.
Also consider this. You are telling me a corporation is ABSOLUTELY nothing like a government. Meaning Corporate expirience SHOULD NOT make you a good government leader. Imagine if he sinks the United states and lets us all burn while he raids what he can and gives it to his corporate buddies.
Actually, corporations exist primarily so the captain doesn't go down with the ship. It's a way of insulating yourself from any financial disasters or lawsuits that might arise from your business. The corporation is a separate legal entity, so instead of sticking to you, the shit only sticks to your corporation, so the most you can lose is the amount you invest in it.
Also factory making factory parts with factory parts? Thats like factoryception
Factory worker. I could never be a miner, it would be suffocating, and there have been deadly mine blasts. Factories are much safer.
I've never been a miner, but have been a factory worker. Therefore; there is no way to compare.
I have claustrophobia
I've been down in a coal mine in WV. NO THANKS
Don't you have to be underground or something like that to work in a mine? No, thank you.
Somehow our comments vanished....poof!
What just happened?
It appears like your comment was deleted.
Did you deleted it by accident?
It is a distinct possibility
Yeah, none are, but I'm sure my nervous system would be happier if I was in a factory instead of a mine.
mine work would be so awful
