  1. They are unappealing because they pay fucking slave wages. Go pick some fruit for $5 an hour

  2. Anyone that blames the worker for the situation of the economy is either; wealthy, or a poor person that votes against their wellbeing because they are a temporarily embarrassed millionaire.

  3. I'm sure an unsustainably small tax pool would have nothing to do with big business has successfully lobbied to keep their taxes disproportionately low in the western world, compared to what tax rates were in the west's "golden age" on massive corporations and the ultra-wealthy. It's a self-inflicted problem that governments around the world could rectify pretty easily, if not for it pissing off the megarich who pay for legislation. That's a corruption problem, not a worker problem. This. Especially with the so-called "megafarms" that have taken over the US agriculture industry and have expanded pretty rapidly into the UK as well. Look how much more profitable farming was 20 years ago in just the UK alone: https://www.statista.com/statistics/313932/agricultural-farming-income-in-the-united-kingdom-uk/ .... oh wait... the industry has more than doubled its profitability in 20 years. I can't find statistics on what agricultural workers wages have been like over 20 years... but given how in the UK census the mean wages of 2021 were lower than they were in 2008, despite wages being up since 2019... I think it's fair to say these workers haven't seen their wages triple. Why do back breaking work, or in megafarm case - back breaking work that can be emotionally exhausting, for the same rate you could sell your time for a much less labour and emotionally intensive job? These jobs are important and necessary - the pay should reflect it. Especially in a cost of living crisis.

  4. I did think this could potentially be a bad matchup for Denmark. They lack the attacking firepower and they rely on the type of attacks that Australia are built to absorb. Congratulations to Australia though, got to be one of the least recognisable squads they've ever had and they've become the story of the tournament. Quite fitting given they should be hosting it.

  5. Let's make it happen. TBH no one expected much from this side, but there IS a spirit, a fight, and no sane person could deny it after tonight's performance. Denmark lacked a cutting edge essentially the whole tournament, but that's not our fault. We played to our strengths, and it is an incredible achievement.

  7. Maybe a bit of a shower thought. I always thought Busquets was massively overrated. Good footballer but never great, just surrounded by massive talent.

  8. Isn't that the woman who decided that she wasn't getting paid enough working for actual research institutions and now criticises other climate scientists for their findings being related to "funding" while she sells her time and "opinions" to those who'll pay her to be an authority on climate denial? https://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Judith_Curry - she's funded by the fossil fuels industry, which is less credible than any papers written with funding given through research grants. Further criticisms of her methodology include: Flawed understanding of uncertainty and probability Misunderstanding her own field's basic terminology Making demonstrably wrong claims and then having no response when presented with evidence that she is wrong Citing blogs as reputable sources Presenting evidence that disproves her own claims on climate change Failure to back up claims with any sort of evidence Uncritical use of invalid data Not much of a bloody expert tbh.

  13. Danny Murphy has actually said something that makes sense. If teams are level after points, goal difference, goals and H2H, most shots on target is better than bookings. At least it rewards positive play.

  28. And we won in 2016 with cookies from the refs, right? Ok. Plus, I can give you a couple of examples were having 'the most famous and profitable player in the world' meant jack shit, with referee's decisions doing more harm than benefitting us.

  29. Fixed? This is a good one. Can't think of a tournament we were given cookies by the refs. The refereeing in the game against Ghana was just shocking, for both sides (I'd say even more for us). Monday, even though some may think the penalty was harsh, Uruguay should have have gotten more yellow cards than what they did. The ref was probably waiting for someone on our side to get killed, before showing a red card.

  32. Wales never laid a glove. Usually we'll have a little scare somewhere but nothing. They were beaten before they went on the pitch IMO because they never attempted to win the game and it was just a case of us being patient. It was clear upping the tempo after HT worked. Got to credit Southgate because he's made two changes up top and they've banged tonight. I feel for Saka, assuming Rashford starts next game now, but equally he will be a great impact sub to bring on as the tournament progresses. I'd give it a solid 7.8/10 performance for me. Always in control, defensively solid and when the first goal went in, it was like a release to cut loose. Look, we've done what was expected, come top of our group. That was the minimum requirement and we've blitzed two teams, struggled against another. Now the real stuff starts. Senegal are going to give us a real hard game I feel, can already visualise extra time or the dreaded penalties for that one. Hopefully we can squeak through and then we'll see.

  33. Foden caused a couple problems in the first half but winning the free-kick for Rashford and scoring the second, hard for Southgate to drop him.

  34. Denmark didn't impress me in their opening match against Tunisia, but they played much better against France despite losing. This should be an interesting match as Australia were excellent against Tunisia. I think Denmark have the slight edge in this game, but you can never underestimate Australia, with the amazing spirit that they have.

  36. Barbarian - 7.5/10 What a flick, I thought Justin Long was great in his role when others seem critical, don't spoil this one for yourselves, just go and see it. Having no prior knowledge is critical to get the best viewing experience is what I was told and my friend was correct. Sicario - 10/10 For what it is this is the best action/thriller of its kind in a decade. A perfectly executed film from pacing and casting to the sound and direction.

  37. What I enjoyed about Dredd was it stayed true to the character unlike the Stallone one where it went off the rails with him for the sake of that big blockbuster feel.. Both films have plus and negative points with regards to the world they live in so the first one was not entirely all bad but was ruined because they did stuff that was totally out of character for Dredd, where as Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby were almost perfect as Dredd and a young Cassandra Anderson.. Sadly they didn't have the big blockbuster finances behind it so something had to give along the way regarding spend but it had grit about it. Karl Urban has always said he would like to return as Dredd if the opportunity and a decent storyline for him came along.. There are plenty of decent stories out there so hopefully someone might pick it up for a second outing in the future The Dark Judges would make a decent film if it had the funds...

  38. I work at a bottle shop. Here are my thoughts on some euro trash, Mexican trash, Asia trash and Aussie trash Perroni (Italy they say)- pale lager. 4/10. The initial flavor is kinda there but did they use gutter water to make it? Also expensive in Australia for what it is. $55 Corona (Mexico)- piss pale lager. 6/10. Expensive considering it's closer to water than a beer, but with a slice of lime goes down innocently enough. $57 Carlsberg (Denmark) - Anotherfuckingpalelager (pilsner) 5/10. Inoffensive. $43. Great Northern (Australia) - Lager. 5/10. Meh. Probably a little more flavorful than Carlsberg but gets nasty at the finish. Must be why most drink the lighter version. $ 49. Chang (Thailand) - Lager. 5/10. I feel like it's the most interesting of the 5/10s, but the roughest at the finish. $55 Bingtang (Thailand) - Lager 6.5/10. Welcome to the best of the shit 'hot day' beers that I've had. Crisp, a bit hoppy. $47 VB (Australia) - They're all lagers aren't they. 3.5/10. Jesus Christ. Look, it has flavor, but it costs more than its competitors and tastes just slightly worse. $57
