It was a pretty good turnout. Next year, you'll have to come to see me do a "Zeke's library story" panel. I'll bring beer to help repress the horrible memories of the workplace. :V
Hmm...Should I bring an IPA or a German lambic?
NEXT YEAR, WE WILL CELEBRATE! >:V
AND YOU WILL LIKE IT!
Hey; I was reading your reply to Randy in the Soccer/Football thread and I've got a question, but the thread's dragged so far on I just thought I'd ask you about it here? I think Randy's assumption was that an ethical salary would be aligned to what someone deserves (see: philosophical desert theory).
I doubt he was questioning that the footballer was entitled to the huge sums of money that he had been offered, just like the corporate entity that hires him is entitled to offer a salary to whatever value it pleases. But I can see where the injustice comes from: sports is a career like any other, but one that uniquely provides no service or benefit to consumers, only to sportsmen. On the other hand, a soldier is expected to give his life and legacy in the service of fleeting war. If I said that I think, regardless of what these two men are entitled to, I believed the soldier is deserving of more, what would you say?
