I'll work for free when everybody else is. But until then I prefer to get payed.
Knock yourself out ! I have no problem with people who wanna work for free and by all means we should ALL take advantage of such free labor ! I do have a problem with people who want/expect me to work for free !
money is the unity for work - e.g. if you work that much you are paid that much.
the problem is there is no unity for free labour - some will work 100% hard, some 50% and most 0% (and some can work 5% but they make it look like 50%).
then those that work more than 20% starts a revolution, so that they can get paid again.
"MONEY IS THE UNITY FOR WORK"...ok, that's gotta be a bumper sticker.
" "MONEY IS THE UNITY FOR WORK"...ok, that's gotta be a bumper sticker."
it is of course an imperfect unity though. you dont get the same money for working in a China coal mine than in a new york office, although the coal mine is harder work and, well.....riskier. however, the coal miner may be a happier man than the NY office worker. haha, it is very complex.
because chess.com is a facade for hacker training. you must hack into "chess" mentor to receive its benefits. once there, you will receive instructions for your next assignment. those "chess" ratings? hacker ratings.
I'm up to breaking into classified CIA files. Is there anything after that?
Wow one day it may b free for all or pay for all
i own chess mentor 3. its a total waste of time
Thanks for dredging this one up out of the muck, Changu.
Next you feel the gentle but firm nudge of someone determined to wake you up.
And it's this post. So let the following sink in and you'll be much the wiser...
These few sentences will save you years of self-pity. The sooner you realize it, accept it and even learn to appreciate it, the happier, more fulfilled life you'll live.
1. Life isn't fair.
2. Nobody owes you anything.
3. You aren't entitled to anything.
4. If you really want something bad enough, you work for it and earn it.
5. If you don't really want to work to earn it, then you must not really want it.
If you find yourself resenting these statements instead of being grateful for the wisdom from your elders, for your own good, then you will need to correct your attitude.
If you are grateful for the benefit of saving yourself years of aggravation because the experience of others has come back to help you get a head start, then there's more where that came from, but this should get you off to a good start.
thanks for the enlightening speech dad. we are all learning new things today
because i say so...idk. i speak for myself... uv been a member since 2009. has it helped u improve?

No, or I would still be a diamond, but that's just me.
I'm with you AndyClifton, thank goodness they brought this thread back lol. And I thought that I started some threads that were real " clunkers ".
Oh well, at least it's good to see Prawn's name again (along with that OmarCayenne idiot).
