Do I understand this correctly? We are talking about being blocked from following a twitter feed? Aren't there easy ways around this?

Tsunami footage: It is truly amazing the power water has.

Gymnast coach: I agree, miraculous might be overly generous. More like, "I know this kid has problems with this move, so I have to be in position to help in case she misses."

I wonder if anyone actually got the jumping the shark reference. I must be showing my age...
Pfft, of course -- mostly old timers here.

I was thinking something similar -- I was thinking unless you have some kind of water filtration system removing "all" material out of your water, how long before that doesn't work? Water where I live is reasonably "soft" but there is still some lime build up.

Huh? Those records are kept already. Using GMT everywhere would just make it easier to figure things like that out.

What? Just because you use GMT doesn't mean your local businesses have to open at 0800 GMT. Does it really matter if when you get up you call it 0600 Eastern or 1100 GMT? Does it matter that your work day might be 1400-2200 GMT instead of 0900-1700 Eastern? Of course not. It is a label and nothing more.

I see you also espouse getting rid of time zones altogether, which seems to be the exact opposite point.
My advocacy of getting rid of time zones is separate from my advocacy of getting rid of DST. And are in the same spirit, KISS.

If the world wants to be on DST, fine -- be on DST. But this having to change when I do things four times a year (yes, four -- because I deal with the UK on a regular basis which has different dates for switching) is a freaking PITA.

GMT for everyone? Hehe. I am fine with getting rid of DST, but be realistic. Getting rid of time zones helps no one.
What are you talking about? It will help anyone who ever communicates with someone in another time zone. So, when you tell your co-worker two time zones away, the meeting is at 14:00. There is no question about when the meeting is.

You do not get extra sunlight at the end of the day. The sun is setting at the exact same time regardless if you call it 6:00 pm or 7:00 pm. Especially as someone running their own business you should be able to set your schedule however you like.

I think we all should have the same time! And where I live it should be like it was!
I agree, GMT for everyone, everything, everywhere, all the time. End all time zones and "daylight savings".

Yeah, was -3 F Thursday, but 40 F+ today and highs are supposed to climb into the high 50s / low 60s by Thursday. Spring finally showing on the horizon...

Well if that's true I wish it would have the effect of getting me better raises. Haven't seen a raises over 2% in a decade. Three of seven of the team have left already...

And, no Communism is not the answer. Free markets work well for most things, but exploitative capitalism is just as extreme as Communism.
Yeah, in the end it really comes down to needing people not to be jerks every chance they get. Unfortunately, a large portion of mankind hasn't learn to avoid that yet.

*sigh* - so disappointing to read things like this.

Wtf would you knowingly train your replacement?
I admit it seems a bit loco, but I suspect it is something along the lines of leave with nothing, or train your replacement and get a severance package. While you or I might have the reserves to be able to afford to walk away in that situation, plenty of people don't.
