in thread I first became interested in Perl because...

Doing unnecessary work because my co-workers can't learn to talk, read, or write is hardly a productive use of my time.

I pay out a huge amount of taxes to ensure that everyone who works in this country is well educated, far beyond basic literacy skills. It's not working; people then just waltz in from foreign countries, and claim to be programmers. They can barely stammer out a sentence at a grade three level, but they get hired to support governnment "diversity" inititives. And then I have to guess what the hell they were trying to say, because they didn't bother to learn to speak at an adult literacy level before they came here, claiming to be my "equal".

It's frustrating. :-(

[Corion]: Meh, I found another Amazon "used" scam reseller... If a product sells for "almost new" at half the price, it's a scam, most likely...
[ambrus]: Corion: that's not true. Actually for Christmas and Thanksgiving, a lot of people buy electronics such as cameras as present, then many of them figure out they don't need it,
[ambrus]: and the electronics gets reselled almost new, but it has to be sold at half price because otherwise everyone chooses to buy the new product which has fewer risk of selling damaged products labelled as almost new.
